TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 14, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 3 THE CLASS HAS SPOTS FOR 40 TO 50 STUDENTS. JENNIFER SMITHAlligator Contributing WriterIn response to recent local crimes, the Gainesville Dojo is of fering training to those who want to learn how to protect themselves. The martial arts facility will hold a free, two-day self-defense class on Saturday and Sunday from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. The class is open to men and women 12 years and older, said Keith Teller, owner of Gainesville Dojo and self-defense instructor. The class does not require any prior experience and is designed to teach practical self-defense on both a physical and psychological level. There will be space for 40 to 50 people. Teller said he will teach participants how to stand balanced, how to throw a proper punch, how to maneuver your body when someone is coming at you and how to use personal belongings to protect yourself. This course is not going to make you a martial arts or a selfdefense expert, but it will give you about defending yourself, he said. The way society is today, you have to be a little more alert. University Police spokesman Maj. Brad Barber said such classes also need to be able to assess their own capabilities.Martial arts facility to offer free self-defense classWEATHER BENJAMIN S. BRASCHAlligator WriterThe freezing temperatures in Gainesville are taking a vacation. Cold temperatures, which started Friday night, will warm up to 73 degrees today and 78 degrees Wednesday. A high-pressure system from Antarctica cooled Gainesville to 25 degrees over the weekend, said Phil Peterson, a meteorologist at the National Weather Service in Jacksonville. The cold front started Friday night with temperatures dipping below 40 degrees, according to the Florida Automated Weather Network. Peterson said the cold front is moving clockwise, pulling warm air from the Gulf of Mexico and warming up Gainesville as the front moves toward the southwest. The warm temperatures will stay longer than the cold temperatures, he said. Todays low is in the mid-30s, Wednesdays is in the mid-50s and Thursdays is in the upper 50s, he said. Cold temperatures drew more customers than usual to Volta Coffee, Tea & Chocolate, said Jenny Todd, a 25-year-old employee. When it gets colder, people crave more hot drinks and less cold drinks, Todd said. However, the freezing temperatures hurt Gainesvilles farmers. Travis Mitchell, a 26-year-old community food project coordinator of Florida Organic Growers, lost his snow peas to the weekend frost. The freezing temperatures can kill part of a plants leaves, causing the plant to take longer to grow. Below the surface, the crop suffers even more, he said. Plant cells are damaged when a plant thaws after a freeze. Its poetic, Mitchell said. Its the returning Plants like tomatoes, radishes and some varieties of lettuce cannot make it through a hard freeze, he said. Some gardeners protect their plants from the cold by covering them with blankets to trap the heat, and naturally formed tree canopies can help keep plants warm. Strawberry gardeners use sprinklers to warm their plants, he said, because heat is released by the water freezing on the strawberries. A few degrees will make all the difference, Mitchell said.

volunteering for the Peace Corps in Moldova. About 7 percent of Peace Corps volunteers are married couples, said spokeswoman Erin Durney. Mapp, 30, and McDaniel, 27, are not the only couple that started in Gainesville and ended up across the world for a 27-month term with the Peace Corps. UF alumna Ilana Echevarria-Stewart and her husband Nate, a Gainesville middle school science teacher, work in Both couples get to model equal-status marriages in places where balanced relationships typically arent the standard. For example, men in Moldova are generally steadfast in traditional gender roles. The fact that Mapp does his share of cleaning shocked McDaniels married coworker. They work together overseas just as they did in their College Park apartment behind University Avenue. One of the Peace Corps goals is to try to explain American values to other cultures, McDaniel said. So its kind of a neat thing that we bring to the table. Married couples that apply to the Peace Corps are placed in foreign countries together, said spokeswoman for job assignments where the couples can live together. For Mapp and McDaniel, this means going to separate jobs he at a community development organization, she at a 25-person domestic violence shelter but returning home to the same place. There, they can cook Mapps moms famous fettuccine, complain about Moldovas single-digit temperatures and reminisce about Gator football games. It would be a completely different experience without somebody that youre married to and living with over here, Mapp said. I dont know how the other people do it. Being a Peace Corps volunteer is personally challenging, McDaniel said, so she loves sharing the experience with her husband. It keeps me really grounded, she said. Its such an invaluable luxury. In South America, the Stewarts feel similarly. Ilana, 26, is an administrative health promoter and Nate, 29, works with the education department. When she needed an emergency appendectomy about a day after they arrived for training, he was with her. He was with her as they journeyed to the nearest hospital which meant canoeing, walking a half-mile over an hour just to reach a paved highway. He was with her as they stayed in Guyanas capital while she recovered with no painkillers stronger than Tylenol. But he wont be with her for Valentines Day today. This week, Ilana is in a remote part of Guyana training new volunteers. She doesnt have phone or Internet access. But thats no problem for them. The two are always on the same page, Stewart said. We just love each other, man, he said. Were just a really good match. 4, ALLIGATOR Couples demonstrate balanced relationships to other cultures LOVE, from page 1Courtesy to the AlligatorLeft: Moldova Peace Corps volunteers Lindsay McDaniel and Conrad Mapp. Right: Guyana Peace Corps volun teers Nate Stewart and Ilana Echevarria-Stewart. Discussion also included tuition, Reitz renovationbecause they are already allotted to UPD. Tuition was another popular topic. Villamil said he wants to band together with larger problems. Students Party treasurer candidate Carly Wilson said she percent tuition increase is going if classes are being cut. She also said SG agencies get money that should be going toward other organizations. However, Unite Party treasur er candidate and current Student guez said there was no wasteful spending on the $40,000 cabinet he wanted to increase communication between organizations to cut wasteful spending. The debate also touched on Union. Cornillie said he will focus on structural issues before making a fancy union. Villamil said student union, not a facility. It should be a place for students and Gators to share and collaborate, he said. Cornillie said the Students Party wants to add recycling bins and solar panels. Villamil said his party wants to create a bike rental program and use more e-books. DEBATE, from page 1 Shawn Janetzke and Clare Lennon / Alligator Staff Rachel Crosby / AlligatorSen.

Deanna Davison, a 24-year-old friend of Raikes, said he would drop anything to help a friend. He was always about getting people to feel better about themselves, said Davison, who is from Richmond, Va., which is what friends should do.

He discovered he had a knack for Japanese and a soft spot for animals and friends who needed a home, said his mom, Robin Raikes. He adopted an abandoned golden retriever, Boddie, who became one of his closest companions. After graduation, he worked with computers and lived in the apartment above his parents barn.

In December, Law School organization focused on legal education policy, asked American Bar Associationaccredited law schools to send information about their recent graduates jobs and salaries. UF already sends these reports to the National Association for Law Placement and the American Bar Association, but those organizations only provide statistics nationally and by state, not individually.

KRISTEN MORRELLAlligator Contributing WriterShands at UF is adding a second helicopter that will focus on calls from Marion County. ShandsCair, the air medical and critical care transport system for Shands, will begin operating its new helicopter and base, ShandsCair 2, on Wednesday. Spruce Creek Fire Station 30 in EC135 helicopter will sit on a concrete helipad at the station until called by ShandsCair, which receives three calls a day on average, said ShandsCair program director Staccie Allen. Operations will begin at 8 a.m. on Feb 15, Allen said. The helicopter will also be used in use. Allen said she did not know how much the project cost. Patients picked up by the new helicopter will be brought to Shands and other hospitals within an apThe idea is to get more people to treatment faster, Allen said. In the world of medicine, the faster you treat them, the more likely they are to have a positive outcome. The project has been planned for about a year, and the Marion County Board of County Commissioners approved it in January. The station chosen for the base has eight open acres on its property, and it already had space to house ShandsCair staff, said Marion County Fire Rescue spokeswoman Jessica Greene.Shands gets new helicopterCRIME TYLER JETTAlligator Staff Writer rested a Gainesville man Monday morning on a charge of killing his 1-year-old daughter about 15 months after the girl died.

Mondays question: Do you know anyone who got into UF?94 TOTAL VOTES71% YES 29% NO No WhiningValentines Day not worth complaints We have all heard these lines: Valentines Day is a corporate holiday invented by corporations to sell candy and stuff. Its just a holiday invented by Hallmark to sell cards. I hate Valentines Day because I dont have anyone. If you have not uttered one of these statements at one point in your life, you are kidding yourself. If, for some reason, you still rely on these platitudes whenever Valentines Day comes around, we have this to say: Shut up! Expressions like the ones previously mentioned have beers and, especially, greeting cards. Grow up and stop complaining about something that has no effect on your life. If you dont care about Valentines Day, why exhaust yourself complaining about it? If you think Valentines Day is an important holiday but you hate it because you reside in a state of perpetual loneliness, then you need to get over yourself. Chances are, life isnt as bad as you think it is. this holiday with does not mean you shouldnt celebrate it. Before you write off Valentines Day and go into your corner, curl up into a ball and cry, think about ways that you direct your emotions to more positive outlets. For instance, Valentines Day doesnt have to be about romantic love. Everyone has friends and family for whom they have strong feelings. Wouldnt it be a better use of time to remind these people, whether it be your parents, siblings or best friends, just how much you love and appreciate them? You could accomplish this by doing something as simple as sending a nice text saying, Happy Valentines Day! For the guys, you could call up some buddies and go grab a drink or some food. You could call your mom or your dad and tell them how much you appreciate their support and encouragement. If you have a platonic friend of the opposite sex, you could still have fun and go see a movie with them. Who knows, maybe that friend whos just a friend could turn out to be more. The point is that Valentines Day is not going away anytime soon. Theres no point in turning into a curmudgeon, sitting at home and pouting about how much you hate this holiday. Life is too damn short to be mad all the time, especially on a day thats supposed to be about happiness. Valentines Day might seem like its reserved for those to those who are single that there are people around them who are just as important. Hazing has no place in college experience Surprise, surprise: another hazing incident in the headlines. This time, controversy surrounds UFs own Alpha Phi Alpha, which has consequently been temporarily suspended after allegations of hazing surfaced last week. Reports have indicated physical abuse and visible inis relieving to know that no one has been hospitalized, although any form of hazing on campus should not be tolerated. President Bernie Machens email to students announcing the investigation of the fraternity was a prompt and necessary response. The email reassured me that students safety is a top priority on the presidents long-running list. The timing of the allegations could not have been worse, neighboring FAMUs November hazing incident, in which a 26-year-old drum major died. Several involved with his death are now under state investigation, and the universitys once legendary Marching 100 band is now defamed. The timing and location are too close for comfort, and the reputation of Florida frats may be beginning to snowball. In my dictionary, Greek life is synonymous with trouble. The road to bid acceptance and the subsequent lifestyle is not always worth the promised perks. In my opinion, the whole process is a bit crooked. After you get all dolled up and spend a few nights kissing ass for total strangers, the brothers and sisters convene and If you are worthy of their approval, you are offered a bid that you can accept and then pay some obscene amount for fees, which, in many cases, contradicts the best value aspect of UF. Many come to school here because they want to graduate with little or no debt at all, yet end up binding themselves to yearly membership fees. Theres always an initiation process. Some are more symbolic and welcoming than customarily paying your dues. Undeniably, UF is home to wholesome sororities and fraternities that are all about brotherhood and sisterhood, but these atmospheres naturally foster superiority of veterans over fresh meat, even within the so-called family. Hazing has a wide spectrum: It may be as minor as a big making a fake Facebook account for a little with embarrassing pictures and information, or it could be a serious criminal offense, physically, sexually and verbally humiliating others for the sake of tradition. The latter occurs in hundreds of universities across the nation, where power-starved upperclassmen ruthlessly prey upon newcomers. Its the epitome of dehumanization. It is also a grandfathered cycle: Someone was picked on or her turn to keep the tradition going. Its a shame in UFs case that a historic black fraternity has to suffer through this type of incident. Alpha Phi Alphas purpose is to serve as a networking tool for young, ambitious African-American students. Now, the organization is at risk of being permanently dismantled. My hope is that the allegations against Alpha Phi Alpha are false. However, if that is not the case, whoever is responsible should be harshly dealt with in order to serve as an example for others who may cross the line in initiation practices. I dont expect Greek life to disappear overnight; in fact, Im not suggesting that would even be a viable solution. I hope students recognize abuse up front and walk away from fraternities and sororities that do so, as well as report any serious incidents. A life could be at stake. College is a time to meet and socialize with others, usually without a paddle involved. Colleen Wright is a journalism freshman at UF. Her column appears on Tuesdays.

14, ALLIGATOR TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 14, 2012 David Carr / AlligatorFlorida sophomore guard Jaterra Bonds has played 1,654 minutes since joining the team last season and is the only Gator to start every game this year. THE GUARD HAS PLAYED MORE THAN 1,500 MINUTES IN TWO SEASONS WITH THE GATORS. JOE MORGAN Alligator Staff Writer Jaterra Bonds has been a key player for the Gators since she arrived on campus. The sophomore guard has logged 1,654 minutes during her two-year career at Florida. Only redshirt senior guard Jordan Jones, who has 1,819 minutes, has accrued more time on the court since the beginning of last season. Bonds has taken advantage of extensive playing time early in her career, putting together a solid resume with career averages of 9.4 points, 2.5 assists and 2.3 rebounds per game. She earned a spot on the All-Southeastern Conference Freshman team last season, playing in a UF-freshman-record 34 games. Perhaps her best stretch came when she averWhile she has not yet duplicated that scoring tear this season, Bonds has still put up respectable scoring numbers, notching her 10th doubledigit scoring effort of the year with 12 points in last Thursdays 70-55 win against Auburn. However, Bonds three points and three turnovers in Sundays 62-58 loss to No. 25 South Carolina serve as a reminder of her youth. Jaterra is a very basketball-savvy player, she usually knows the right play to make, assistant coach Brenda Mock Kirkpatrick said. Sometimes, she gets a little overzealous, and sometimes, that can affect her decision-making. Bonds issues boil down mostly to shot selection and her ability to take care of the ball. age, including a team-low 28.3 clip in SEC play, and her 66 turnovers rank second-most among Gators with 19 or more starts this season. However, the frequency of Bonds giveaways has improved from last season from one turnover every 8.5 minutes to one turnover every 11.1 minutes. She does a great job of absorbing the game plan and learning from week-to-week, head coach Amanda Butler said. She is really striving to make better decisions because she knows how important that is for us. Bonds experience has aided not only her performance on the court but her leadership role on the team. Through Butlers multiple lineup shifts, Bonds is the only player who has started every game for the Gators this season. If Im not talking, I dont feel comfortable, Bonds said. I have to talk, like instructing, if I see something wrong, to help my teammate out. making her a vital piece in Floridas transition game and full-court press. As Bonds continues to gain experience early in her career, she hopes to make waves with the Gators on the national stage as she made clear during Floridas media day before the season began. My goal is when they talk about college basketball, I want them to mention my name. Contact Joe Morgan at joemorgan@alligator.org. Bonds proving clutch for Florida

Against Tennessee, Beal had three giveaways. We didnt compete at all really, Beal said. We werent really focused. We werent getting any offense at all. We were just jacking up shots. Our mentality throughout the whole game we just werent focused at all. Beal blamed much of the teams struggles after the loss on poor practices. Boynton echoed that sentiment and said it only takes a single player to throw Florida off its rhythm on both sides of the ball. If one person is having a bad game, then he might be down for some reason, and its messing us up defensively, not rotating or something, Boynton said. So I think one person having a bad game or something like that, I think he just needs to put that behind his head and focus on the team. Contact John Boothe at jboothe@alligator.org. TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 14, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 15 Maegan Dennis / Alligator Staff HOOPS, from page 13Gators taking bad practices into games GREG LUCAAlligator Staff WriterAfter levying four suspensions in the past week, Alabama coach Anthony Grant said Monday that two of those players guards Trevor Releford and Andrew Steele will most likely be back for tonights matchup with Florida. Forwards JaMychal Green and Tony MitchPrior to Saturdays game against LSU, Green and Mitchell had combined for 37.4 percent of Alabamas points and 35.9 percent of the teams rebounds. Green leads the Crimson Tide in points per game with 14.1 and rebounds per game with 7.2. Mitchell is second in both categories with 13.1 points per game and 7.0 rebounds per contest. No other Crimson Tide player averages more than 3.8 rebounds per game. Mitchell also leads Alabama with 31 blocked shots, with Green right behind at 29. You always prepare for their full team, thats what were expecting, UF coach Billy Donovan said. The last thing I would want to have happen for our team is to assume something or somebody not playing and then all of a sudden theyre out there. Injury update: Donovan said Monday that Will Yeguete and Mike Rosario will be out Tuesday against Alabama. Rosario is still dealing with a hip pointer, while Yeguete is yet to pass three portions of knocked unconscious early in Saturdays loss to Tennessee. Although Yeguete is not suffering any symptoms of dizziness or illness, Donovan said the sophomore forward still needs time to rest and that light and movement are not good for his recovery process. Donovan said Yeguete is not close to passing certain portions of the test, including a balance indicator that requires him to stand on one leg with his eyes closed. This could be a couple weeks, this could be a week, could be three weeks, Donovan said. Id say right now, with where his sympout this entire week. Yeguete also suffered a minor concussion courtesy of an elbow from forward Jared Sullinger in a loss to Ohio State on Nov. 15. He missed UFs next game against UNF before returning against Wright State on Nov. 21. Donovan added that Cody Larson was a limited participant in practice but will be available tonight after missing Saturdays game with an illness. Donovan said Larson lost weight, and his conditioning has suffered. Replacing Yeguete: With Yeguete sidelined for at least this week, Donovan is turning to Casey Prather to pick up the slack. Prather admitted Monday that hes strugited playing time and production but said that a meeting with Donovan on Sunday helped alleviate some of his concerns. Donovan thinks Prather can be a valuable athleticism at the top of UFs press defense. To be successful, the 6-foot-6 Prather said he has to slow the game down and use his quickness against bigger opponents. Prather has been held back by an inability to read the game, but his effort has never been a concern. He s never had a bad attitude, Donovan said. He comes to practice every day and works. Hes put extra time in. He deserves to play well. Donovan said UF will likely shrink the having to use Brad Beal and Scottie Wilbekin at the power forward position. One option Donovan does not plan to turn to is freshman Walter Pitchford, who has struggled to retain the offense and scouting reports after missing time with a wrist injury.

TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 14, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 3 THE CLASS HAS SPOTS FOR 40 TO 50 STUDENTS. JENNIFER SMITHAlligator Contributing WriterIn response to recent local crimes, the Gainesville Dojo is offering training to those who want to learn how to protect themselves. The martial arts facility will hold a free, two-day self-defense class on Saturday and Sunday from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. The class is open to men and women 12 years and older, said Keith Teller, owner of Gainesville Dojo and self-defense instructor. The class does not require any prior experience and is designed to teach practical self-defense on both a physical and psychological level. There will be space for 40 to 50 people. Teller said he will teach participants how to stand balanced, how to throw a proper punch, how to maneuver your body when someone is coming at you and how to use personal belongings to protect yourself. This course is not going to make you a martial arts or a selfdefense expert, but it will give you about defending yourself, he said. The way society is today, you have to be a little more alert. University Police spokesman Maj. Brad Barber said such classes also need to be able to assess their own capabilities.Martial arts facility to offer free self-defense classWEATHER BENJAMIN S. BRASCHAlligator WriterThe freezing temperatures in Gainesville are taking a vacation. Cold temperatures, which started Friday night, will warm up to 73 degrees today and 78 degrees Wednesday. A high-pressure system from Antarctica cooled Gainesville to 25 degrees over the weekend, said Phil Peterson, a meteorologist at the National Weather Service in Jacksonville. The cold front started Friday night with temperatures dipping below 40 degrees, according to the Florida Automated Weather Network. Peterson said the cold front is moving clockwise, pulling warm air from the Gulf of Mexico and warming up Gainesville as the front moves toward the southwest. The warm temperatures will stay longer than the cold temperatures, he said. Todays low is in the mid-30s, Wednesdays is in the mid-50s and Thursdays is in the upper 50s, he said. Cold temperatures drew more customers than usual to Volta Coffee, Tea & Chocolate, said Jenny Todd, a 25-year-old employee. When it gets colder, people crave more hot drinks and less cold drinks, Todd said. However, the freezing temperatures hurt Gainesvilles farmers. Travis Mitchell, a 26-year-old community food project coordinator of Florida Organic Growers, lost his snow peas to the weekend frost. The freezing temperatures can kill part of a plants leaves, causing the plant to take longer to grow. Below the surface, the crop suffers even more, he said. Plant cells are damaged when a plant thaws after a freeze. Its poetic, Mitchell said. Its the returning Plants like tomatoes, radishes and some varieties of lettuce cannot make it through a hard freeze, he said. Some gardeners protect their plants from the cold by covering them with blankets to trap the heat, and naturally formed tree canopies can help keep plants warm. Strawberry gardeners use sprinklers to warm their plants, he said, because heat is released by the water freezing on the strawberries. A few degrees will make all the difference, Mitchell said.

volunteering for the Peace Corps in Moldova. About 7 percent of Peace Corps volunteers are married couples, said spokeswoman Erin Durney. Mapp, 30, and McDaniel, 27, are not the only couple that started in Gainesville and ended up across the world for a 27-month term with the Peace Corps. UF alumna Ilana Echevarria-Stewart and her husband Nate, a Gainesville middle school science teacher, work in Both couples get to model equal-status marriages in places where balanced relationships typically arent the standard. For example, men in Moldova are generally steadfast in traditional gender roles. The fact that Mapp does his share of cleaning shocked McDaniels married coworker. They work together overseas just as they did in their College Park apartment behind University Avenue. One of the Peace Corps goals is to try to explain American values to other cultures, McDaniel said. So its kind of a neat thing that we bring to the table. Married couples that apply to the Peace Corps are placed in foreign countries together, said spokeswoman for job assignments where the couples can live together. For Mapp and McDaniel, this means going to separate jobs he at a community development organization, she at a 25-person domestic violence shelter but returning home to the same place. There, they can cook Mapps moms famous fettuccine, complain about Moldovas single-digit temperatures and reminisce about Gator football games. It would be a completely different experience without somebody that youre married to and living with over here, Mapp said. I dont know how the other people do it. Being a Peace Corps volunteer is personally challenging, McDaniel said, so she loves sharing the experience with her husband. It keeps me really grounded, she said. Its such an invaluable luxury. In South America, the Stewarts feel similarly. Ilana, 26, is an administrative health promoter and Nate, 29, works with the education department. When she needed an emergency appendectomy about a day after they arrived for training, he was with her. He was with her as they journeyed to the nearest hospital which meant canoeing, walking a half-mile over an hour just to reach a paved highway. He was with her as they stayed in Guyanas capital while she recovered with no painkillers stronger than Tylenol. But he wont be with her for Valentines Day today. This week, Ilana is in a remote part of Guyana training new volunteers. She doesnt have phone or Internet access. But thats no problem for them. The two are always on the same page, Stewart said. We just love each other, man, he said. Were just a really good match. 4, ALLIGATOR Couples demonstrate balanced relationships to other cultures LOVE, from page 1Courtesy to the AlligatorLeft: Moldova Peace Corps volunteers Lindsay McDaniel and Conrad Mapp. Right: Guyana Peace Corps volunteers Nate Stewart and Ilana Echevarria-Stewart.

In December, Law School organization focused on legal education policy, asked American Bar Associationaccredited law schools to send information about their recent graduates jobs and salaries. UF already sends these reports to the National Association for Law Placement and the American Bar Association, but those organizations only provide statistics nationally and by state, not individually. When LST releases that information, prospective law students will be able to compare schools side by side. As far as picking your school, those statistics would 24-year-old UF law student Kathryn Barkett. Pascale Bishop, assistant dean of the law schools Center for Career Development, said UF will submit infor mation about its 2011 graduates in late February or early March.

KRISTEN MORRELLAlligator Contributing WriterShands at UF is adding a second helicopter that will focus on calls from Marion County. ShandsCair, the air medical and critical care transport system for Shands, will begin operating its new helicopter and base, ShandsCair 2, on Wednesday. Spruce Creek Fire Station 30 in EC135 helicopter will sit on a concrete helipad at the station until called by ShandsCair, which receives three calls a day on average, said ShandsCair program director Staccie Allen. Operations will begin at 8 a.m. on Feb 15, Allen said. The helicopter will also be used in use. Allen said she did not know how much the project cost. Patients picked up by the new helicopter will be brought to Shands and other hospitals within an apThe idea is to get more people to treatment faster, Allen said. In the world of medicine, the faster you treat them, the more likely they are to have a positive outcome. The project has been planned for about a year, and the Marion County Board of County Commissioners approved it in January. The station chosen for the base has eight open acres on its property, and it already had space to house ShandsCair staff, said Marion County Fire Rescue spokeswoman Jessica Greene.Shands gets new helicopterCrRIME TYLER JETTAlligator Staff Writer rested a Gainesville man Monday morning on a charge of killing his 1-year-old daughter about 15 months after the girl died.

Mondays question: Do you know anyone who got into UF?94 TOTAL VOTES71% YES 29% NO No WhiningValentines Day not worth complaints We have all heard these lines: Valentines Day is a corporate holiday invented by corporations to sell candy and stuff. Its just a holiday invented by Hallmark to sell cards. I hate Valentines Day because I dont have anyone. If you have not uttered one of these statements at one point in your life, you are kidding yourself. If, for some reason, you still rely on these platitudes whenever Valentines Day comes around, we have this to say: Shut up! Expressions like the ones previously mentioned have beers and, especially, greeting cards. Grow up and stop complaining about something that has no effect on your life. If you dont care about Valentines Day, why exhaust yourself complaining about it? If you think Valentines Day is an important holiday but you hate it because you reside in a state of perpetual loneliness, then you need to get over yourself. Chances are, life isnt as bad as you think it is. this holiday with does not mean you shouldnt celebrate it. Before you write off Valentines Day and go into your corner, curl up into a ball and cry, think about ways that you direct your emotions to more positive outlets. For instance, Valentines Day doesnt have to be about romantic love. Everyone has friends and family for whom they have strong feelings. Wouldnt it be a better use of time to remind these people, whether it be your parents, siblings or best friends, just how much you love and appreciate them? You could accomplish this by doing something as simple as sending a nice text saying, Happy Valentines Day! For the guys, you could call up some buddies and go grab a drink or some food. You could call your mom or your dad and tell them how much you appreciate their support and encouragement. If you have a platonic friend of the opposite sex, you could still have fun and go see a movie with them. Who knows, maybe that friend whos just a friend could turn out to be more. The point is that Valentines Day is not going away anytime soon. Theres no point in turning into a curmudgeon, sitting at home and pouting about how much you hate this holiday. Life is too damn short to be mad all the time, especially on a day thats supposed to be about happiness. Valentines Day might seem like its reserved for those to those who are single that there are people around them who are just as important. Hazing has no place in college experience Surprise, surprise: another hazing incident in the headlines. This time, controversy surrounds UFs own Alpha Phi Alpha, which has consequently been temporarily suspended after allegations of hazing surfaced last week. Reports have indicated physical abuse and visible inis relieving to know that no one has been hospitalized, although any form of hazing on campus should not be tolerated. President Bernie Machens email to students announcing the investigation of the fraternity was a prompt and necessary response. The email reassured me that students safety is a top priority on the presidents long-running list. The timing of the allegations could not have been worse, neighboring FAMUs November hazing incident, in which a 26-year-old drum major died. Several involved with his death are now under state investigation, and the universitys once legendary Marching 100 band is now defamed. The timing and location are too close for comfort, and the reputation of Florida frats may be beginning to snowball. In my dictionary, Greek life is synonymous with trouble. The road to bid acceptance and the subsequent lifestyle is not always worth the promised perks. In my opinion, the whole process is a bit crooked. After you get all dolled up and spend a few nights kissing ass for total strangers, the brothers and sisters convene and If you are worthy of their approval, you are offered a bid that you can accept and then pay some obscene amount for fees, which, in many cases, contradicts the best value aspect of UF. Many come to school here because they want to graduate with little or no debt at all, yet end up binding themselves to yearly membership fees. Theres always an initiation process. Some are more symbolic and welcoming than customarily paying your dues. Undeniably, UF is home to wholesome sororities and fraternities that are all about brotherhood and sisterhood, but these atmospheres naturally foster superiority of veterans over fresh meat, even within the so-called family. Hazing has a wide spectrum: It may be as minor as a big making a fake Facebook account for a little with embarrassing pictures and information, or it could be a serious criminal offense, physically, sexually and verbally humiliating others for the sake of tradition. The latter occurs in hundreds of universities across the nation, where power-starved upperclassmen ruthlessly prey upon newcomers. Its the epitome of dehumanization. It is also a grandfathered cycle: Someone was picked on or her turn to keep the tradition going. Its a shame in UFs case that a historic black fraternity has to suffer through this type of incident. Alpha Phi Alphas purpose is to serve as a networking tool for young, ambitious African-American students. Now, the organization is at risk of being permanently dismantled. My hope is that the allegations against Alpha Phi Alpha are false. However, if that is not the case, whoever is responsible should be harshly dealt with in order to serve as an example for others who may cross the line in initiation practices. I dont expect Greek life to disappear overnight; in fact, Im not suggesting that would even be a viable solution. I hope students recognize abuse up front and walk away from fraternities and sororities that do so, as well as report any serious incidents. A life could be at stake. College is a time to meet and socialize with others, usually without a paddle involved. Colleen Wright is a journalism freshman at UF. Her column appears on Tuesdays.

14, ALLIGATOR TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 14, 2012 David Carr / AlligatorFlorida sophomore guard Jaterra Bonds has played 1,654 minutes since joining the team last season and is the only Gator to start every game this year. THE GUARD HAS PLAYED MORE THAN 1,500 MINUTES IN TWO SEASONS WITH THE GATORS. JOE MORGAN Alligator Staff Writer Jaterra Bonds has been a key player for the Gators since she arrived on campus. The sophomore guard has logged 1,654 minutes during her two-year career at Florida. Only redshirt senior guard Jordan Jones, who has 1,819 minutes, has accrued more time on the court since the beginning of last season. Bonds has taken advantage of extensive playing time early in her career, putting together a solid resume with career averages of 9.4 points, 2.5 assists and 2.3 rebounds per game. She earned a spot on the All-Southeastern Conference Freshman team last season, playing in a UF-freshman-record 34 games. Perhaps her best stretch came when she averWhile she has not yet duplicated that scoring tear this season, Bonds has still put up respectable scoring numbers, notching her 10th doubledigit scoring effort of the year with 12 points in last Thursdays 70-55 win against Auburn. However, Bonds three points and three turnovers in Sundays 62-58 loss to No. 25 South Carolina serve as a reminder of her youth. Jaterra is a very basketball-savvy player, she usually knows the right play to make, assistant coach Brenda Mock Kirkpatrick said. Sometimes, she gets a little overzealous, and sometimes, that can affect her decision-making. Bonds issues boil down mostly to shot selection and her ability to take care of the ball. age, including a team-low 28.3 clip in SEC play, and her 66 turnovers rank second-most among Gators with 19 or more starts this season. However, the frequency of Bonds giveaways has improved from last season from one turnover every 8.5 minutes to one turnover every 11.1 minutes. She does a great job of absorbing the game plan and learning from week-to-week, head coach Amanda Butler said. She is really striving to make better decisions because she knows how important that is for us. Bonds experience has aided not only her performance on the court but her leadership role on the team. Through Butlers multiple lineup shifts, Bonds is the only player who has started every game for the Gators this season. If Im not talking, I dont feel comfortable, Bonds said. I have to talk, like instructing, if I see something wrong, to help my teammate out. making her a vital piece in Floridas transition game and full-court press. As Bonds continues to gain experience early in her career, she hopes to make waves with the Gators on the national stage as she made clear during Floridas media day before the season began. My goal is when they talk about college basketball, I want them to mention my name. Contact Joe Morgan at joemorgan@alligator.org. Bonds proving clutch for Florida

Against Tennessee, Beal had three giveaways. We didnt compete at all really, Beal said. We werent really focused. We werent getting any offense at all. We were just jacking up shots. Our mentality throughout the whole game we just werent focused at all. Beal blamed much of the teams struggles after the loss on poor practices. Boynton echoed that sentiment and said it only takes a single player to throw Florida off its rhythm on both sides of the ball. If one person is having a bad game, then he might be down for some reason, and its messing us up defensively, not rotating or something, Boynton said. So I think one person having a bad game or something like that, I think he just needs to put that behind his head and focus on the team. Contact John Boothe at jboothe@alligator.org. TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 14, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 15 Maegan Dennis / Alligator Staff HOOPS, from page 13Gators taking bad practices into games GREG LUCAAlligator Staff WriterAfter levying four suspensions in the past week, Alabama coach Anthony Grant said Monday that two of those players guards Trevor Releford and Andrew Steele will most likely be back for tonights matchup with Florida. Forwards JaMychal Green and Tony MitchPrior to Saturdays game against LSU, Green and Mitchell had combined for 37.4 percent of Alabamas points and 35.9 percent of the teams rebounds. Green leads the Crimson Tide in points per game with 14.1 and rebounds per game with 7.2. Mitchell is second in both categories with 13.1 points per game and 7.0 rebounds per contest. No other Crimson Tide player averages more than 3.8 rebounds per game. Mitchell also leads Alabama with 31 blocked shots, with Green right behind at 29. You always prepare for their full team, thats what were expecting, UF coach Billy Donovan said. The last thing I would want to have happen for our team is to assume something or somebody not playing and then all of a sudden theyre out there. Injury update: Donovan said Monday that Will Yeguete and Mike Rosario will be out Tuesday against Alabama. Rosario is still dealing with a hip pointer, while Yeguete is yet to pass three portions of knocked unconscious early in Saturdays loss to Tennessee. Although Yeguete is not suffering any symptoms of dizziness or illness, Donovan said the sophomore forward still needs time to rest and that light and movement are not good for his recovery process. Donovan said Yeguete is not close to passing certain portions of the test, including a balance indicator that requires him to stand on one leg with his eyes closed. This could be a couple weeks, this could be a week, could be three weeks, Donovan said. Id say right now, with where his sympout this entire week. Yeguete also suffered a minor concussion courtesy of an elbow from forward Jared Sullinger in a loss to Ohio State on Nov. 15. He missed UFs next game against UNF before returning against Wright State on Nov. 21. Donovan added that Cody Larson was a limited participant in practice but will be available tonight after missing Saturdays game with an illness. Donovan said Larson lost weight, and his conditioning has suffered. Replacing Yeguete: With Yeguete sidelined for at least this week, Donovan is turning to Casey Prather to pick up the slack. Prather admitted Monday that hes strugited playing time and production but said that a meeting with Donovan on Sunday helped alleviate some of his concerns. Donovan thinks Prather can be a valuable athleticism at the top of UFs press defense. To be successful, the 6-foot-6 Prather said he has to slow the game down and use his quickness against bigger opponents. Prather has been held back by an inability to read the game, but his effort has never been a concern. He s never had a bad attitude, Donovan said. He comes to practice every day and works. Hes put extra time in. He deserves to play well. Donovan said UF will likely shrink the having to use Brad Beal and Scottie Wilbekin at the power forward position. One option Donovan does not plan to turn to is freshman Walter Pitchford, who has struggled to retain the offense and scouting reports after missing time with a wrist injury.

JOSH JURNOVOYAlligator WriterAfter jumping out to a quick lead Saturday, the Gators were not the same.
