Dear Readers,Today marks the 40th anniversary of The Independent Florida Alligators, hit the stands Feb. 1, 1973, debuting a publication that has since seen the Gators win three national football championships, six UF presidents lead the university and the population of Gainesville nearly double in size. Forty years ago, there was no Internet, no cellphones and no iPads. The Student Government reporter didnt send out live updates from Senate meetings because Twitter was decades from being invented. Stories were punched out on typewriters as production workers designed pages by hand. As the pervasive digital world has increasingly changed journalism, the Alligator has evolved. Today, we see story ideas on Facebook, edit our articles in Google Docs and create layouts in Adobe InDesign. We are not the same paper we were 40 years ago. But make no mistake: Our independence is more crucial than ever. Being independent isnt about bashing university administrators or printing curse words. Its not a gimmick, its not a liberal agenda and its not a superiority complex. The Alligators independence is so vital because it enables us to serve our readers the best way we know how. Independence allows us to deliver honest reporting that casts a critical eye on university ongoings, city events and global news. No subject is off-limits. We have the freedom to investigate, experiment and most of all inform. When you read the Alligator, you know where the content is coming from. All of our reporters and editors are students. We pour our hearts and souls into every single edition, which means working and drinking too much coffee. When our predecessors separated from the university all those years ago, they might have been young, but they knew exactly what they were doing. They were giving us the power to operate as our own entity, to cover news have to deal with them. Theres no one over us. Nobody is dictating what we can and cannot print, and thats often a positive and negative thing at the same time. People hate us, people love us, but we hope all those people know were trying our damndest to do the right thing. We appreciate our independence because it holds us even more accountable to you, the readers. You deserve to know whats really going on in your community without sugarcoating or ulterior motives. You deserve a newspaper thats committed to giving you the facts, whether theyre good, bad or ugly. The Alligator staff of 1973 did not believe in censorship, and neither does that of 2013. And for the next 40 years, and the 40 after that, and the 40 after that, were going to keep working with this history in mind. After all, they say the elder years are always the most fun.Thank you,The Independent Florida Alligator Through the years: a brief history of the Alligator Shawn Janetzke / Alligator Staff Oct 19, 1 9 0 6The eight-page, studentrun paper The University about a month after the University of the State of Florida opens.

TODAY IS Feb. 1, 1973. It is a day we expected to neither note nor remember. Instead it marks our independence. We are pleased with the idea of independence. Not because we are libertarians. We were never bothered by those who called us hypocrites because we used the student activity fee. We never wavered from our belief that students had the right to distribute the fee It never disturbed us that we had our facilities on campus.

UF President Stephen C. OConnell held a press conference condemning the decision. Meanwhile, many women who had both illegal and legal abortions called and sent letters to the Alligator thanking staff members for publishing the list. The law was eventually declared unconstitutional. The states legislature was forced to rewrite the law and loosen the restrictions. Monday, Oct. 4, 1971 The Florida Alligator published a story on the outcome of a Board of Student Publications meeting to determine whether an article listing abortion referral services could be published in Mondays edition. The meeting adjourned without a ruling due to lack of quorum. The board failed to act by its 5 p.m. deadline, which meant publishing the story would be at the risk of the editor, according to its general policies. The article was removed from publication for its scheduled date, Thursday, Sept. 30, by the newspapers editorial advisor, Alan K. Whiteleather. The article was removed from publication due to Florida Statute 797.02 of the Florida Constitution, which ruled the printing of any material related to abortion illegal.

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 1, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 3 THEY TUMBLED WEDNESDAY. COLLEEN WRIGHTAlligator WriterUF cheerleaders will now be able to do more than shout and clap at Gators games. UFs University Athletic Association communications senior associate athletics director Steve McClain said cheerleaders will be able to do a few stunts since the UAA banned them from all tumbling and stunts at practices, events and games in November. The UAA implemented the ban after an Orlando Magic cheerleader fell from a stunt and injured herself during a game against the New York Knicks. to allow the cheerleaders to do some basic stunts and tumbling that we feel comfortable with regarding their safety, he wrote in an email. He said the changes went into effect last week. Jason Merslich, a 28-year-old for mer Gators cheerleader and coach, said the UAA now allows back handsprings, chairs and shoulder sits. These are things that 4and 5-yearolds can do, Merslich said. He said the team is grateful for the leeway. Wednesday nights basketball could stunt since the ban. UF recreation, parks and tourism senior and team captain Tarin Moses tweeted, First basketball game back with stunts... Well kinda. #babysteps, from her @TarinMoses Twitter account Wednesday.

The organization, started in 2007, addresses the problem of poverty and bridges the gap between research and practice in Kenya and other areas of Africa. UF professor and doctoral student Levy Odera, a Kenya native, founded the organization with friends at Valdosta State University during their undergraduate studies. Odera said the goals of the organization, which is registered as an international nonbusiness failure, create longterm and stable employment, increase employment and collect enough data that can be used for other African countries. Linguistics junior Fiona Hogan, 19; food and resource economics senior Caleb Christmas, 22; and criminology and law senior Robert Shelton, 22; are the UF students interning for Odera. For the students and professor to go to Kenya, the organization sent its project to the Dell Social Innovation Challenge to compete for grants. People can vote for the project on the challenges website. We really need those votes, Odera said. He said the results will determine if they can go to Kenya. Hogan said students log into the website and register with their Gator 1 card. The website email to let them vote. The organizations main system, Solving Poverty in Real-Time, monitors and gives advice to small businesses instantly in Kenya. This system will connect them to experts all over the world and advise them how to succeed in an instant, Odera said.

A new study from Inside Higher Ed shows that colleges are relying more on temporary teachers and less on professors with the lifetime job security of tenure. Tenure gives permanent status to professors who distinguish themselves through their university contributions by teaching or researchProvost website. Out of the top 1,081 college and university leaders responsible for hiring and evaluating faculty, 65 on faculty that are not on track to receive tenure, according to the 2013 Inside Higher Ed Survey of College and University Chief Academic OfAlthough UF has lost the absolute number of tenured faculty over time, it has maintained the ratio of tenured to nontenured faculty pretty well, said Associate Provost for Academic Affairs Angel KwolekFolland. In 2011, the university employed 1,719 tenured regular faculty. Over the past decade, the per centage of regular faculty on tenure out of the total university faculty has remained above 80 percent, according to UFs tional Planning and Research website. Lawrence W. Kenny, a professor in the Warrington College of Business Administration, said hes been a UF tenured professor since 1980. Kenny said hiring more temporary faculty gives a university latiThe universitys really hurting now, he said. Half a dozen years with no raises and people are leaving.

Paying a faculty member cial commitment to tenure provides Kenny said the economic pressures facing state legislatures has taken much of the funding away from research, which can be cut without many people noticing. Some may not make it back to the quality that they had before, Kenny said. At UF, every department has had to make cuts in the past three to four years, Kwolek-Folland said. However, she said the emphasis on research at UF has allowed the university to retain a large population of tenured faculty.In 2011, UF had 1,719 IT COULD BE HERE BY MAY 2014. BEATRICE DUPUYAlligator Contributing WriterLondon, Paris and Washington, D.C., are cities that have bike-sharing systems, but one Orlando company wants Gainesville to be put on that list. Peter Martinez, founder of SunCycles, said his company is planning to bring the idea of a bike-sharing system to Gainesville through the city commission. Unlike other companies that have riders SunCycles will allow bikes to be rented and returned within a designated area. He added that the drop-off and pickup locations will be listed on the companys website. We want to increase cycling culture and increase parking for all bikes, he said. Martinez said installing regular bike-shar ing stations can cost about $28,000 to $50,000. His companys system, he said, would be a cheaper alternative. SunCycles uses chainless bikes that have GPS trackers installed. Riders will have to register online to use a bike. The prices range from $5 for 24-hour access to $99 for an annual access. The membership provides bike riders with a PIN, which they punch into the bikes builtin keypad to unlock the bike. Martinez said he hopes the company will be in Gainesville by May 2014. The company is still waiting on an agreement with the city to park the bicycles on public land. Gator Cycle store manager Fred Lintz said anything that gets people out on bikes is a good thing. Sarah Elbadri, Gainesville SunCycles director of operations, said the bike-sharing stations would be placed in highly traveled areas in Gainesville, including UFs campus. She said the bike-sharing system could be a cheaper alternative to purchasing a bike. Elbadri said the bike-sharing system could eliminate bicycle graveyards on campus. University Police Capt. Jeff Holcomb said 500 to 600 bikes are abandoned on campus each year. We want to increase cycling culture and increase parking for all bikes.Peter Martinezfounder of SunCyclesKenny

Imagine Jadin Bell as your own sibling or family member. Picture yourself in the situation, in the hospital, staring at his limp body. Imagine the seizing grief. Imagine the horrible guilt. Imagine the questions. Such questions have kept me up for many a night. What does it take for someone to decide to commit suicide? How much of a hell does life have to be for someone to decide that to continue living would be a fate worse than death? How does this happen? How does this keep happening? Why do so many of our gay youth kill themselves? For me, the question lying beneath all of this is the question of the culture. Is our culture one that truly welcomes the healthy development of young minds? I think that as long as prejudice exists to such a large degree in our society, the lives of our youth are at risk. As long as bullies feel validated and righteous in their cause, and as long as the victims of the bullies feel degraded and worthless, I think children will continue to kill themselves. Homophobia runs rife through our culture. Homophobic symbols can even be found at the heart of UFs campus.

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 1, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 7 Student Government elections are about representing students and gaining their perspectives on which issues are most important. The codes that govern SG elections state that political parties are allowed to be engaged in campaign activity four weeks before elections. Campaign activity includes passive actions such as making announcements or electronic posts that students can choose to pay attention to or ignore. Swamp Party strives toward transparency and effectively conveying its ideas to the students while receiving feedback from every demographic on campus. Swamp Party announced its candidate for Student Body president, vice president, and treasurer within the four-week campaign activity time and perfectly adheres to campaign codes. The announcement informed students of the candidates Swamp Party believes students should be given time to research the candidates and provide feedback on what they would like to see improved on campus, as long as it is within the four-week time period. All electronic posts and announcements made from Swamp Party have been compliant with the campaign codes and have not expressed any explicit language soliciting votes. Swamp Partys posts have included an article on past accomplishments and information on how to slate for Senate, in order to inform the Student Body and engage students as much as possible. Swamp Party is also dedicated to serving its constituents and the entire student body. On Jan. 25, a a complaint against Swamp Party. both parties that the hearing would be held on Sunday night. On Sunday night, all six commissioners were there, as well as representatives of Swamp Party. No representatives of Students Party were anywhere to be found. The commissioners waited 20 minutes before deciding to postpone the hearing. The Students Party failed to attend the hearing and failed to represent the students it stands for. Students Party abandoned its constituents. Over the summer, when a bill about election codes was put in front of the Senate, almost every member of the Students Party voted on the legislation. Students Party failed to return to the chamber to vote on other pieces of important legislation. Swamp Party is dedicated to a fair election and to responsibly representing the students of UF. Elliot Grasso is the Swamp Party spokesman.Swamp Party announcement complies with campaign rulesGuest columnElliot GrassoSpeaking Out In Saudi Arabia, women cannot drive. In India and China, some newborn girls are killed at birth. Womens rights in the U.S. have come a long way, from the suffrage movement to the feminist movement; from the exclusion of women in the workforce to the inclusion of them in the military. Women in the U.S. now have more rights than ever. But we cant forget what has troubled women of all nationalities: rape. At some point in her lifetime, every woman has feared being raped. If it is dark outside and she is out alone, she fears being raped. Sometimes we feel unsafe taking a walk at 11 p.m. to clear our minds because were worried some creep will follow us and take advantage of our singleness. Were not leaving Library West at 4 a.m., were just going to spend the night its too much trouble and too much risk. When were walking home alone, our keys are in one hand, and in the other, we are on the phone so that, just in case something does happen, there is sound evidence of what happened on the other line. This may be an exaggeration to some, but for others, this fear is a part of daily life. Though victims are not always women, men are less likely to be raped. One in four college women has survived rape or sexual assault. Rape is worse than being robbed or stabbed those are external. Rape is intimate. It is unwanted, and it is internal. It is taking control of the inside of the body. It is less about sexual pleasure and more about control and power. Were not looking the stranger in front of us in the eye, for fear of what we might suggest. We feel even more vulnerable, like easy targets, when were in in short skirts or low-cut tops, for fear some man on the street might assume we are asking for it and force us to do it anyway when we resist. the weather, our poor fashion sense, or even men we blame ourselves. Women are commonly taught three things: how to during rape and what to do after rape. We avoid darkness and being alone. We carry pepper spray and walk swiftly. We call 911 and go to a clinic afterward. Society has seemingly accepted the predator/prey relationship: the vulnerable single woman as prey, and the lonely aggressive man as the predator. Why hasnt anyone asked men to contain themselves? Is it natural to be sexually charged and aggressive? Are men by nature more demanding and violent? Public decency and decorum can be taught. Men should be told early in their lives not to rape. Maybe there arent enough consequences: Ninetyseven percent of rapists will never spend a day in jail, according to statistics by Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network. Society should make it clear that rape is not the victims fault. It is the rapists. No means no. If she says no, resists or hesitates, men have to respect that. One of the scariest parts of rape is that rapists are not usually strangers. About two out of three assaults are committed by someone known to the victim, and 38 percent are a friend or acquaintance. If shes drunk and wont remember, respect her and walk away. Just because you paid for her coffee, took her to dinner or bought her a drink does not mean she owes you in sexual favors. If youre unsure whether the money you spend on her will equate to sex, then just go Dutch and split the bill. Chivalry is basically dead anyway. There are rapists out there.

On Thursday, the Walmart located on closed while a new store, located at 5700 NW 23rd St., opened its doors early this morning. Walmart spokesman Bill Wertz said the company decided to relocate and expand the new store to meet customer demands.

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 1, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 9 BEN LAUDERDALEAlligator Contributing WriterUFs College of Public Health & Health Professions, HealthStreet and Athlete Brain have teamed up to offer free baseline concussion tests to Gainesville children and teenagers. The tests, funded by a grant from Health IMPACTS for Florida, will allow physicians to study concussion-like symptoms for children aged 9 to 18 years old. The tests will run from noon to 4 p.m. Saturday and Feb. 2 at HealthStreet, 2401 SW Archer Road. Aliyah Snyder, a UF graduate student and founder of Athlete Brain, said supervisors will administer Sport Concussion Assessment Tool 2 tests, which will assess a patients balance, coordination and memory on a grading scale. It will also check a patient for concussion symptoms, such as dizziness, nausea and headaches. Once a test is complete, par ents can take the results to their physician, Snyder said. If the child has a concussion in the future, that SCAT2 result can really help the doctor make a diagnostic decision about whether or not there is impair ment, she said. Satur days event evolves from Concussion Awareness Day, which was held last year at HealthStreets Northeast Waldo Road location, said Noni Graham, HealthStreet project coor dinator. That event was more so just to educate the community and to educate the kids on concussions, she said. Graham added that the Flor ida Legislature is currently discussing making concussion tests mandatory for public schools across the state, especially for high school student athletes.Free concussion tests for kids, teensGREEK LIFE KAITLYN PEARSONAlligator Contributing WriterRaquel Bicknell said she thinks the girls of Delta Zeta can drop it really low.

Nesbit said Blue Springs and Ginnie Springs will be making the donation. The purpose of the water challenge, she said, is to raise awareness about how water usage is directly related to the water quality in springs and rivers. The 13 houses competing will have their water usage measured every week.

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 1, 2013 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG alligatorSports.orgGo to alligatorSports.org this weekend for updates on mens basketball, womens tennis, track 40 years of independence Read the story online at alligatorSports.org.Bianca Dancose-Giambattisto sidelined due to a sore back. See story, page 15. LANDON WATNICKOle Miss guard Marshall Henderson has earned a reputation for more than his scoring. Henderson, who has averaged a Southeastern Conference-best 21.3 points per game in league play, has become infamous for his controversial on-court antics. As the buzzer sounded in Ole Miss 63-61 victory against Auburn on Saturday, Henderson taunted the Tigers student section.. During Ole Miss 87-74 home loss to Kentucky on Tuesday, Henderson argued with Rebels coach Andy Kennedy on the sideline and at one point threw ice cubes into the Ole Miss student section. Under the 6-foot-2 JUCO transfers leadership, Ole Miss (17-3, 6-1 SEC) is off to its best start in program history. Every player is different, point guard Scottie Wilbekin said. I dont like to be like that. Thats not my style, but every player can have his own style. Junior forward Will Yeguete added: We play with a lot of energy and emotion in the game. Sometimes, you do things you dont realize you do until after. I dont think theres anything wrong with that. No. 4 Florida (17-2, 7-0 SEC) will look to contain Henderson when it hosts No. 16 Ole Miss on Saturday night at 7 in the OConnell Center. Henderson has been a dynamic scorer this season but is a volume shooter, shooting 38 percent from behind the arc. He averages 14.6 els shots in SEC play. Henderson gets to the free throw line often, making 85.3 per cent of his 5.1 attempts per contest. As a deep threat, he thrives in catch-and-shoot situations when coming off of staggered screens. Hes got great feet, coach Billy Donovan said. In terms of coming off screens, he can get his feet down, get them set. Hes got the ability to kind of get himself squared up pretty quickly.David Carr/ Alligator StaffGuard Scottie Wilbekin (5) attempts a layup during Floridas 75-36 win against South Carolina on Wednesday night in the OConnell Center. Gators to face SECs top scorer ADAM PINCUSFlorida baseball was a sure thing last season. As was Austin Maddox closing with games on the line. He started the year with eight scoreless outings. Madand 12 saves. Now he has moved on to professional baseball, and Flor Candidates include sophomores Justin Shafer and Johnny Magliozzi, as well as juniors Daniel Gibson and Keenan Kish. I love being in those situations having to close out games, Shafer said. I love pressure situations. If they ask me to do it, Ill do the best I can. Coach Kevin OSullivan had a number of relievers at his disposal late in games in 2012. The formula never changed. Starters Hudson Randall, Brian Johnson and Jonathan Crawford gave way to a dominant bullpen. Greg Larson and Steven Rodriguez then set the table for Maddox. son. With a young group of pitchers, the third starter spot open and a void at closer, roles have yet to be determined. What is certain are veterans like Gibson and Kish will be leaned on heavily. OSullivan said he wants a competitor on the mound closing out games. With two weeks until the season opener against Duke on Feb. 15, a variety of pitchers are competing to be the guy to take the mound in the ninth frame. Theres guys here that are ready to step up into those roles and ready to take advantage of the opportunities, Gibson said. Dont expect to see Shafer unleash his arm in a scrimmage anytime soon. With an increased pitching role, the versatile sophomore is more careful. I just take it easy throwingwise since Ill be pitching more, so I dont throw as much in practice, he said. Shafer arrived at Florida as High. He moved to the outThompson suffered a torn ACL during the opening weekend of conference play in March. He hadnt played a whole I thought he got better as the season wore on. This year, he is totally different. He is a really good defender. At the plate, he hit .284 while batting at the bottom of the lineup. His 44 starts last season are tied for second among returning players. Hell be in the middle of the lineup once the season starts. Shafer expects more off-speed pitches from opposing pitchers, but a year in the SEC and a summer in the Cape Cod Florida weighing options at closer THE GATORS WERE HELD SCORE LESS FOR MORE THAN 6 MINUTES IN THE SECOND HALF. PHILLIP HEILMANFinding consistent offense has been problematic for the Gators during Southeastern Conference play. Thursday was no different. Florida was held scoreless for more than 6 minutes in the second half, watching its lead evaporate and its losing streak continue. Missouri used Floridas late offensive na. Were digging ourselves a hole, and were making it really, really hard (to win games), coach Amanda Butler said. second half, the Gators failed to score for the next 6:03. Missouri (14-8, 3-5 SEC) capitalized with a 14-0 run late in the contest. Florida recovered from its offensive drought to tie the game at 64 with 1:33 remaining. However, Missouri senior Sydney on consecutive possessions to give the Tigers a 68-64 lead with less than a minute to go in the game. UF did not respond.

The Gators have successfully limited volume shooters this season. Missouri point guard Phil Pressey and Texas A&M guard Elston Turner, who each average roughly 12 shots per game, went a combined 2 of 17 from the Wilbekin said he plans to chase Henderson off screens like he did with Turner. You just have to stay up on him and always be ready, Wilbekin said. Henderson has proven clutch in key situations. Down three points against Vanderbilt on Jan. 15, he drilled a desperation heave at the buzzer to send the game into overtime. In extra time, he scored three more points as the Rebels cruised to an 89-79 victory. But Ole Miss has scoring options besides Hender son. Senior forwards Murphy Holloway and Reginald Buckner have provided inside scoring for the Rebels, tallying a combined 24.3 points per contest. Holloway averages a double-double for the Rebels with 14.6 points and an SEC-high 10.3 rebounds. Donovan said Ole Miss is spaced well on offense because opposing teams have to account for both the three-point line and the post. When they beat you off the dribble, that creates all sorts of problems, Donovan said. Theres a reason theyre 6-1 in the league. ALLIGATOR, 15GYMNASTICS CHUCK KINGSBURYAlligator WriterWith the Southeastern Confer ence Championships less than two has constructed versatile lineups. The different combinations have paid off. The entire season before SEC [Championships], regionals and nationals, its the opportunity for our athletes to learn, to grow, adapt and to become stronger competitors, battisto was given a chance to learn Replacing All-American Alaina Johnson, who sat out with a sore back, on uneven bars against the Tigers, Dancose-Giambattisto turned in a 9.925 in her college debut. Despite performing an untested dismount, her score matched Johnsons 2011 mark as the highest score posted in a bars lineup debut. When she competed elite for Canada, she had a different dismount and we told her [the double layout] was something she needed So to come out and not only do something new, be in the pressure of the lineup and stick (the landing), I think that said a lot for her and her mental toughness. Dancose-Giambattistos sample size may be small, but it speaks volumes I want them to be sure that when they put me in the lineup that I can hit the routine, stick it every time and always go for the 10, DancoseGiambattisto said. Johnson might be out for more than several meets, which should free up space on the uneven bars rotation and in other events for Dancose-Giambattisto tonight at Arkansas. with Dancose-Giambattistos abilities.

Sophomore Rachel Spicer made her balance beam debut competing alongside Dancose-Giambattisto on Jan. 13. She recorded a 9.125 despite making a mistake on her layout mid-routine. Spicer, like Dancose-Giambattisto, subbed in for the injured Johnson. Sophomore Kytra Hunter, who was named SEC Gymnast of the Week, has taken notice of her teammates readiness. Putting the new faces out there in the different lineups and just adjusting to the new lineups quick just shows us just how mentally strong we are, Hunter said.

The biggest thing about being here one year is knowing what to expect, Shafer said. You see a lot of people you are going to face hitting-wise, and as a freshman, you dont know what to expect pitching-wise. You get here, and it is kind of overwhelming with everyone throwing 90 mph, and you are like, Wow, every day, seeing that. Getting used to that, you know what to expect everyday in and out with SEC pitching. Third starter spot up for grabs: starting rotation.

Dear Readers,Today marks the 40th anniversary of The Independent Florida Alligators, hit the stands Feb. 1, 1973, debuting a publication that has since seen the Gators win three national football championships, six UF presidents lead the university and the population of Gainesville nearly double in size. Forty years ago, there was no Internet, no cellphones and no iPads. The Student Government reporter didnt send out live updates from Senate meetings because Twitter was decades from being invented. Stories were punched out on typewriters as production workers designed pages by hand. As the pervasive digital world has increasingly changed journalism, the Alligator has evolved. Today, we see story ideas on Facebook, edit our articles in Google Docs and create layouts in Adobe InDesign. We are not the same paper we were 40 years ago. But make no mistake: Our independence is more crucial than ever. Being independent isnt about bashing university administrators or printing curse words. Its not a gimmick, its not a liberal agenda and its not a superiority complex. The Alligators independence is so vital because it enables us to serve our readers the best way we know how. Independence allows us to deliver honest reporting that casts a critical eye on university ongoings, city events and global news. No subject is off-limits. We have the freedom to investigate, experiment and most of all inform. When you read the Alligator, you know where the content is coming from. All of our reporters and editors are students. We pour our hearts and souls into every single edition, which means working and drinking too much coffee. When our predecessors separated from the university all those years ago, they might have been young, but they knew exactly what they were doing. They were giving us the power to operate as our own entity, to cover news have to deal with them. Theres no one over us. Nobody is dictating what we can and cannot print, and thats often a positive and negative thing at the same time. People hate us, people love us, but we hope all those people know were trying our damndest to do the right thing. We appreciate our independence because it holds us even more accountable to you, the readers. You deserve to know whats really going on in your community without sugarcoating or ulterior motives. You deserve a newspaper thats committed to giving you the facts, whether theyre good, bad or ugly. The Alligator staff of 1973 did not believe in censorship, and neither does that of 2013. And for the next 40 years, and the 40 after that, and the 40 after that, were going to keep working with this history in mind. After all, they say the elder years are always the most fun.Thank you,The Independent Florida Alligator Through the years: a brief history of the Alligator Shawn Janetzke / Alligator Staff Oct 19, 1 9 0 6The eight-page, studentrun paper The University about a month after the University of the State of Florida opens.

UF President Stephen C. OConnell held a press conference condemning the decision. Meanwhile, many women who had both illegal and legal abortions called and sent letters to the Alligator thanking staff members for publishing the list. The law was eventually declared unconstitutional. The states legislature was forced to rewrite the law and loosen the restrictions. Monday, Oct. 4, 1971 The Florida Alligator published a story on the outcome of a Board of Student Publications meeting to determine whether an article listing abortion referral services could be published in Mondays edition. The meeting adjourned without a ruling due to lack of quorum. The board failed to act by its 5 p.m. deadline, which meant publishing the story would be at the risk of the editor, according to its general policies. The article was removed from publication for its scheduled date, Thursday, Sept. 30, by the newspapers editorial advisor, Alan K. Whiteleather. The article was removed from publication due to Florida Statute 797.02 of the Florida Constitution, which ruled the printing of any material related to abortion illegal.

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 1, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 3 THEY TUMBLED WEDNESDAY. COLLEEN WRIGHTAlligator WriterUF cheerleaders will now be able to do more than shout and clap at Gators games. UFs University Athletic Association communications senior associate athletics director Steve McClain said cheerleaders will be able to do a few stunts since the UAA banned them from all tumbling and stunts at practices, events and games in November. The UAA implemented the ban after an Orlando Magic cheerleader fell from a stunt and injured herself during a game against the New York Knicks. to allow the cheerleaders to do some basic stunts and tumbling that we feel comfortable with regarding their safety, he wrote in an email. He said the changes went into effect last week. Jason Merslich, a 28-year-old for mer Gators cheerleader and coach, said the UAA now allows back handsprings, chairs and shoulder sits. These are things that 4and 5-yearolds can do, Merslich said. He said the team is grateful for the leeway. Wednesday nights basketball could stunt since the ban. UF recreation, parks and tourism senior and team captain Tarin Moses tweeted, First basketball game back with stunts... Well kinda. #babysteps, from her @TarinMoses Twitter account Wednesday.

The organization, started in 2007, addresses the problem of poverty and bridges the gap between research and practice in Kenya and other areas of Africa. UF professor and doctoral student Levy Odera, a Kenya native, founded the organization with friends at Valdosta State University during their undergraduate studies. Odera said the goals of the organization, which is registered as an international nonbusiness failure, create longterm and stable employment, increase employment and collect enough data that can be used for other African countries. Linguistics junior Fiona Hogan, 19; food and resource economics senior Caleb Christmas, 22; and criminology and law senior Robert Shelton, 22; are the UF students interning for Odera. For the students and professor to go to Kenya, the organization sent its project to the Dell Social Innovation Challenge to compete for grants. People can vote for the project on the challenges website. We really need those votes, Odera said. He said the results will determine if they can go to Kenya. Hogan said students log into the website and register with their Gator 1 card. The website email to let them vote. The organizations main system, Solving Poverty in Real-Time, monitors and gives advice to small businesses instantly in Kenya. This system will connect them to experts all over the world and advise them how to succeed in an instant, Odera said.

A new study from Inside Higher Ed shows that colleges are relying more on temporary teachers and less on professors with the lifetime job security of tenure. Tenure gives permanent status to professors who distinguish themselves through their university contributions by teaching or researchProvost website. Out of the top 1,081 college and university leaders responsible for hiring and evaluating faculty, 65 on faculty that are not on track to receive tenure, according to the 2013 Inside Higher Ed Survey of College and University Chief Academic OfAlthough UF has lost the absolute number of tenured faculty over time, it has maintained the ratio of tenured to nontenured faculty pretty well, said Associate Provost for Academic Affairs Angel KwolekFolland. In 2011, the university employed 1,719 tenured regular faculty. Over the past decade, the per centage of regular faculty on tenure out of the total university faculty has remained above 80 percent, according to UFs tional Planning and Research website. Lawrence W. Kenny, a professor in the Warrington College of Business Administration, said hes been a UF tenured professor since 1980. Kenny said hiring more temporary faculty gives a university latiThe universitys really hurting now, he said. Half a dozen years with no raises and people are leaving.

Paying a faculty member cial commitment to tenure provides Kenny said the economic pressures facing state legislatures has taken much of the funding away from research, which can be cut without many people noticing. Some may not make it back to the quality that they had before, Kenny said. At UF, every department has had to make cuts in the past three to four years, Kwolek-Folland said. However, she said the emphasis on research at UF has allowed the university to retain a large population of tenured faculty.In 2011, UF had 1,719 IT COULD BE HERE BY MAY 2014. BEATRICE DUPUYAlligator Contributing WriterLondon, Paris and Washington, D.C., are cities that have bike-sharing systems, but one Orlando company wants Gainesville to be put on that list. Peter Martinez, founder of SunCycles, said his company is planning to bring the idea of a bike-sharing system to Gainesville through the city commission. Unlike other companies that have riders SunCycles will allow bikes to be rented and returned within a designated area. He added that the drop-off and pickup locations will be listed on the companys website. We want to increase cycling culture and increase parking for all bikes, he said. Martinez said installing regular bike-shar ing stations can cost about $28,000 to $50,000. His companys system, he said, would be a cheaper alternative. SunCycles uses chainless bikes that have GPS trackers installed. Riders will have to register online to use a bike. The prices range from $5 for 24-hour access to $99 for an annual access. The membership provides bike riders with a PIN, which they punch into the bikes builtin keypad to unlock the bike. Martinez said he hopes the company will be in Gainesville by May 2014. The company is still waiting on an agreement with the city to park the bicycles on public land. Gator Cycle store manager Fred Lintz said anything that gets people out on bikes is a good thing. Sarah Elbadri, Gainesville SunCycles director of operations, said the bike-sharing stations would be placed in highly traveled areas in Gainesville, including UFs campus. She said the bike-sharing system could be a cheaper alternative to purchasing a bike. Elbadri said the bike-sharing system could eliminate bicycle graveyards on campus. University Police Capt. Jeff Holcomb said 500 to 600 bikes are abandoned on campus each year. We want to increase cycling culture and increase parking for all bikes.Peter Martinezfounder of SunCyclesKenny

Imagine Jadin Bell as your own sibling or family member. Picture yourself in the situation, in the hospital, staring at his limp body. Imagine the seizing grief. Imagine the horrible guilt. Imagine the questions. Such questions have kept me up for many a night. What does it take for someone to decide to commit suicide? How much of a hell does life have to be for someone to decide that to continue living would be a fate worse than death? How does this happen? How does this keep happening? Why do so many of our gay youth kill themselves? For me, the question lying beneath all of this is the question of the culture. Is our culture one that truly welcomes the healthy development of young minds? I think that as long as prejudice exists to such a large degree in our society, the lives of our youth are at risk. As long as bullies feel validated and righteous in their cause, and as long as the victims of the bullies feel degraded and worthless, I think children will continue to kill themselves. Homophobia runs rife through our culture. Homophobic symbols can even be found at the heart of UFs campus.

Its like Blockbuster came back from the dead up in here. We suppose the company has to at least try to keep up with the more-hip phone providers. We give a maybe-its-timeto-hang-up-your-jacket DART to BlackBerry. Not that we dont appreciate all of the cultural references you gave us, but it might be time to let the big dogs play on their own. Find another fun project to work on instead. there is no Constitutional impact on your right to bear arms and the action Im suggesting can in fact demonstrably show some people could be saved then this seems to be a no-brainer to me, said Vice President Biden, according to a Politico article. We give a as-long-as-you-try-todo-something-well-be-happy-but-also-please-pass-it LAUREL to Biden. We will basically never care how much NBC does very few things correctly. Fans and followers of comedy will praise it for its legendary programs like Saturday Night Live and will curse it for how it treated Community. This week, however, marks the end of 30 Rock, a series led by Queen of Comedy, Tina Fey. Dry on our screens soon maybe just in a much lesser way because shes busy raising the next Fey. Plus, who will make such awesome jokes about Florida for us? We give a heartfelt there-there-dont-cry DART to NBC. Yeah, yeah, we know every show has to end at some point, but we also thought Rock was different and special. As a newspaper, sometimes we feel pretty outdated, like our pal BlackBerry up there.

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 1, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 7 Student Government elections are about representing students and gaining their perspectives on which issues are most important. The codes that govern SG elections state that political parties are allowed to be engaged in campaign activity four weeks before elections. Campaign activity includes passive actions such as making announcements or electronic posts that students can choose to pay attention to or ignore. Swamp Party strives toward transparency and effectively conveying its ideas to the students while receiving feedback from every demographic on campus. Swamp Party announced its candidate for Student Body president, vice president, and treasurer within the four-week campaign activity time and perfectly adheres to campaign codes. The announcement informed students of the candidates Swamp Party believes students should be given time to research the candidates and provide feedback on what they would like to see improved on campus, as long as it is within the four-week time period. All electronic posts and announcements made from Swamp Party have been compliant with the campaign codes and have not expressed any explicit language soliciting votes. Swamp Partys posts have included an article on past accomplishments and information on how to slate for Senate, in order to inform the Student Body and engage students as much as possible. Swamp Party is also dedicated to serving its constituents and the entire student body. On Jan. 25, a a complaint against Swamp Party. both parties that the hearing would be held on Sunday night. On Sunday night, all six commissioners were there, as well as representatives of Swamp Party. No representatives of Students Party were anywhere to be found. The commissioners waited 20 minutes before deciding to postpone the hearing. The Students Party failed to attend the hearing and failed to represent the students it stands for. Students Party abandoned its constituents. Over the summer, when a bill about election codes was put in front of the Senate, almost every member of the Students Party voted on the legislation. Students Party failed to return to the chamber to vote on other pieces of important legislation. Swamp Party is dedicated to a fair election and to responsibly representing the students of UF. Elliot Grasso is the Swamp Party spokesman.Swamp Party announcement complies with campaign rulesGuest columnElliot GrassoSpeaking Out In Saudi Arabia, women cannot drive. In India and China, some newborn girls are killed at birth. Womens rights in the U.S. have come a long way, from the suffrage movement to the feminist movement; from the exclusion of women in the workforce to the inclusion of them in the military. Women in the U.S. now have more rights than ever. But we cant forget what has troubled women of all nationalities: rape. At some point in her lifetime, every woman has feared being raped. If it is dark outside and she is out alone, she fears being raped. Sometimes we feel unsafe taking a walk at 11 p.m. to clear our minds because were worried some creep will follow us and take advantage of our singleness. Were not leaving Library West at 4 a.m., were just going to spend the night its too much trouble and too much risk. When were walking home alone, our keys are in one hand, and in the other, we are on the phone so that, just in case something does happen, there is sound evidence of what happened on the other line. This may be an exaggeration to some, but for others, this fear is a part of daily life. Though victims are not always women, men are less likely to be raped. One in four college women has survived rape or sexual assault. Rape is worse than being robbed or stabbed those are external. Rape is intimate. It is unwanted, and it is internal. It is taking control of the inside of the body. It is less about sexual pleasure and more about control and power. Were not looking the stranger in front of us in the eye, for fear of what we might suggest. We feel even more vulnerable, like easy targets, when were in in short skirts or low-cut tops, for fear some man on the street might assume we are asking for it and force us to do it anyway when we resist. the weather, our poor fashion sense, or even men we blame ourselves. Women are commonly taught three things: how to during rape and what to do after rape. We avoid darkness and being alone. We carry pepper spray and walk swiftly. We call 911 and go to a clinic afterward. Society has seemingly accepted the predator/prey relationship: the vulnerable single woman as prey, and the lonely aggressive man as the predator. Why hasnt anyone asked men to contain themselves? Is it natural to be sexually charged and aggressive? Are men by nature more demanding and violent? Public decency and decorum can be taught. Men should be told early in their lives not to rape. Maybe there arent enough consequences: Ninetyseven percent of rapists will never spend a day in jail, according to statistics by Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network. Society should make it clear that rape is not the victims fault. It is the rapists. No means no. If she says no, resists or hesitates, men have to respect that. One of the scariest parts of rape is that rapists are not usually strangers. About two out of three assaults are committed by someone known to the victim, and 38 percent are a friend or acquaintance. If shes drunk and wont remember, respect her and walk away. Just because you paid for her coffee, took her to dinner or bought her a drink does not mean she owes you in sexual favors. If youre unsure whether the money you spend on her will equate to sex, then just go Dutch and split the bill. Chivalry is basically dead anyway. There are rapists out there.

On Thursday, the Walmart located on closed while a new store, located at 5700 NW 23rd St., opened its doors early this morning. Walmart spokesman Bill Wertz said the company decided to relocate and expand the new store to meet customer demands.

She said employees from the old Northwest 13th Street store can transfer to the new location. She said the new store will hire 70 new employees.

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 1, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 9 BEN LAUDERDALEAlligator Contributing WriterUFs College of Public Health & Health Professions, HealthStreet and Athlete Brain have teamed up to offer free baseline concussion tests to Gainesville children and teenagers. The tests, funded by a grant from Health IMPACTS for Florida, will allow physicians to study concussion-like symptoms for children aged 9 to 18 years old. The tests will run from noon to 4 p.m. Saturday and Feb. 2 at HealthStreet, 2401 SW Archer Road. Aliyah Snyder, a UF graduate student and founder of Athlete Brain, said supervisors will administer Sport Concussion Assessment Tool 2 tests, which will assess a patients balance, coordination and memory on a grading scale. It will also check a patient for concussion symptoms, such as dizziness, nausea and headaches. Once a test is complete, par ents can take the results to their physician, Snyder said. If the child has a concussion in the future, that SCAT2 result can really help the doctor make a diagnostic decision about whether or not there is impair ment, she said. Satur days event evolves from Concussion Awareness Day, which was held last year at HealthStreets Northeast Waldo Road location, said Noni Graham, HealthStreet project coor dinator. That event was more so just to educate the community and to educate the kids on concussions, she said. Graham added that the Flor ida Legislature is currently discussing making concussion tests mandatory for public schools across the state, especially for high school student athletes.Free concussion tests for kids, teensGREEK LIFE KAITLYN PEARSONAlligator Contributing WriterRaquel Bicknell said she thinks the girls of Delta Zeta can drop it really low.

Nesbit said Blue Springs and Ginnie Springs will be making the donation. The purpose of the water challenge, she said, is to raise awareness about how water usage is directly related to the water quality in springs and rivers. The 13 houses competing will have their water usage measured every week.

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 1, 2013 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG alligatorSports.orgGo to alligatorSports.org this weekend for updates on mens basketball, womens tennis, track 40 years of independence Read the story online at alligatorSports.org.Bianca Dancose-Giambattisto sidelined due to a sore back. See story, page 15. LANDON WATNICKOle Miss guard Marshall Henderson has earned a reputation for more than his scoring. Henderson, who has averaged a Southeastern Conference-best 21.3 points per game in league play, has become infamous for his controversial on-court antics. As the buzzer sounded in Ole Miss 63-61 victory against Auburn on Saturday, Henderson taunted the Tigers student section.. During Ole Miss 87-74 home loss to Kentucky on Tuesday, Henderson argued with Rebels coach Andy Kennedy on the sideline and at one point threw ice cubes into the Ole Miss student section. Under the 6-foot-2 JUCO transfers leadership, Ole Miss (17-3, 6-1 SEC) is off to its best start in program history. Every player is different, point guard Scottie Wilbekin said. I dont like to be like that. Thats not my style, but every player can have his own style. Junior forward Will Yeguete added: We play with a lot of energy and emotion in the game. Sometimes, you do things you dont realize you do until after. I dont think theres anything wrong with that. No. 4 Florida (17-2, 7-0 SEC) will look to contain Henderson when it hosts No. 16 Ole Miss on Saturday night at 7 in the OConnell Center. Henderson has been a dynamic scorer this season but is a volume shooter, shooting 38 percent from behind the arc. He averages 14.6 els shots in SEC play. Henderson gets to the free throw line often, making 85.3 per cent of his 5.1 attempts per contest. As a deep threat, he thrives in catch-and-shoot situations when coming off of staggered screens. Hes got great feet, coach Billy Donovan said. In terms of coming off screens, he can get his feet down, get them set. Hes got the ability to kind of get himself squared up pretty quickly.David Carr/ Alligator StaffGuard Scottie Wilbekin (5) attempts a layup during Floridas 75-36 win against South Carolina on Wednesday night in the OConnell Center. Gators to face SECs top scorer ADAM PINCUSFlorida baseball was a sure thing last season. As was Austin Maddox closing with games on the line. He started the year with eight scoreless outings. Madand 12 saves. Now he has moved on to professional baseball, and Flor Candidates include sophomores Justin Shafer and Johnny Magliozzi, as well as juniors Daniel Gibson and Keenan Kish. I love being in those situations having to close out games, Shafer said. I love pressure situations. If they ask me to do it, Ill do the best I can. Coach Kevin OSullivan had a number of relievers at his disposal late in games in 2012. The formula never changed. Starters Hudson Randall, Brian Johnson and Jonathan Crawford gave way to a dominant bullpen. Greg Larson and Steven Rodriguez then set the table for Maddox. son. With a young group of pitchers, the third starter spot open and a void at closer, roles have yet to be determined. What is certain are veterans like Gibson and Kish will be leaned on heavily. OSullivan said he wants a competitor on the mound closing out games. With two weeks until the season opener against Duke on Feb. 15, a variety of pitchers are competing to be the guy to take the mound in the ninth frame. Theres guys here that are ready to step up into those roles and ready to take advantage of the opportunities, Gibson said. Dont expect to see Shafer unleash his arm in a scrimmage anytime soon. With an increased pitching role, the versatile sophomore is more careful. I just take it easy throwingwise since Ill be pitching more, so I dont throw as much in practice, he said. Shafer arrived at Florida as High. He moved to the outThompson suffered a torn ACL during the opening weekend of conference play in March. He hadnt played a whole I thought he got better as the season wore on. This year, he is totally different. He is a really good defender. At the plate, he hit .284 while batting at the bottom of the lineup. His 44 starts last season are tied for second among returning players. Hell be in the middle of the lineup once the season starts. Shafer expects more off-speed pitches from opposing pitchers, but a year in the SEC and a summer in the Cape Cod Florida weighing options at closer THE GATORS WERE HELD SCORELESS FOR MORE THAN 6 MINUTES IN THE SECOND HALF. PHILLIP HEILMANFinding consistent offense has been problematic for the Gators during Southeastern Conference play. Thursday was no different. Florida was held scoreless for more than 6 minutes in the second half, watching its lead evaporate and its losing streak continue. Missouri used Floridas late offensive na. Were digging ourselves a hole, and were making it really, really hard (to win games), coach Amanda Butler said. second half, the Gators failed to score for the next 6:03. Missouri (14-8, 3-5 SEC) capitalized with a 14-0 run late in the contest. Florida recovered from its offensive drought to tie the game at 64 with 1:33 remaining. However, Missouri senior Sydney on consecutive possessions to give the Tigers a 68-64 lead with less than a minute to go in the game. UF did not respond.

The Gators have successfully limited volume shooters this season. Missouri point guard Phil Pressey and Texas A&M guard Elston Turner, who each average roughly 12 shots per game, went a combined 2 of 17 from the Wilbekin said he plans to chase Henderson off screens like he did with Turner. You just have to stay up on him and always be ready, Wilbekin said. Henderson has proven clutch in key situations. Down three points against Vanderbilt on Jan. 15, he drilled a desperation heave at the buzzer to send the game into overtime. In extra time, he scored three more points as the Rebels cruised to an 89-79 victory. But Ole Miss has scoring options besides Hender son. Senior forwards Murphy Holloway and Reginald Buckner have provided inside scoring for the Rebels, tallying a combined 24.3 points per contest. Holloway averages a double-double for the Rebels with 14.6 points and an SEC-high 10.3 rebounds. Donovan said Ole Miss is spaced well on offense because opposing teams have to account for both the three-point line and the post. When they beat you off the dribble, that creates all sorts of problems, Donovan said. Theres a reason theyre 6-1 in the league. ALLIGATOR, 15GYMNASTICS CHUCK KINGSBURYAlligator WriterWith the Southeastern Confer ence Championships less than two has constructed versatile lineups. The different combinations have paid off. The entire season before SEC [Championships], regionals and nationals, its the opportunity for our athletes to learn, to grow, adapt and to become stronger competitors, battisto was given a chance to learn Replacing All-American Alaina Johnson, who sat out with a sore back, on uneven bars against the Tigers, Dancose-Giambattisto turned in a 9.925 in her college debut. Despite performing an untested dismount, her score matched Johnsons 2011 mark as the highest score posted in a bars lineup debut. When she competed elite for Canada, she had a different dismount and we told her [the double layout] was something she needed So to come out and not only do something new, be in the pressure of the lineup and stick (the landing), I think that said a lot for her and her mental toughness. Dancose-Giambattistos sample size may be small, but it speaks volumes I want them to be sure that when they put me in the lineup that I can hit the routine, stick it every time and always go for the 10, DancoseGiambattisto said. Johnson might be out for more than several meets, which should free up space on the uneven bars rotation and in other events for Dancose-Giambattisto tonight at Arkansas. with Dancose-Giambattistos abilities. Shes a natural bars swinger, Shes a beautiful bars swinger with incredible extension and toe point. Sophomore Rachel Spicer made her balance beam debut competing alongside Dancose-Giambattisto on Jan. 13. She recorded a 9.125 despite making a mistake on her layout mid-routine. Spicer, like Dancose-Giambattisto, subbed in for the injured Johnson. Sophomore Kytra Hunter, who was named SEC Gymnast of the Week, has taken notice of her teammates readiness. Putting the new faces out there in the different lineups and just adjusting to the new lineups quick just shows us just how mentally strong we are, Hunter said. Ark., to defend their No. 1 ranking against the Razorbacks. time again on uneven bars. But if last week was any indication, Dancose-Giambattisto may not learn where she will be competing until tonight. of the competition that I was going to compete, Dancose-Giambattisto said. Just going out there and doing an awesome routine felt really good Freshman shines on bars in debutDancose-GGiambattisto MISSMISSOURII, from page 15 League prepared him well. The biggest thing about being here one year is knowing what to expect, Shafer said. You see a lot of people you are going to face hitting-wise, and as a freshman, you dont know what to expect pitching-wise. You get here, and it is kind of overwhelming with everyone throwing 90 mph, and you are like, Wow, every day, seeing that. Getting used to that, you know what to expect everyday in and out with SEC pitching. Third starter spot up for grabs: starting rotation. Jonathon Crawford and Karsten Whitson continue where last years starting staff left off. The two earned secondand third-team preseason AllAmerican honors from Baseball America on Thursday. be selected. We just dont know who it is yet, OSullivan said.
