damaged. She always pushed his buttons, she said, but he always took her back. Landon McBride, Englands next door neighbor, said he was friends with England. In the mornings, England would make coffee, smoke a cigarette and watch the news. McBride would come over and watch TV with him. Sometimes theyd talk about Englands father, who died a few months ago, or about Englands relationship. He was a kind man, McBride said. He was just going through a lot in his life, and I always told him everything would be all right. The Monday before Lugo discovMcBride that Dunnigan got her tax return back and was talking about leaving to stay with her mother. Then McBride didnt see him for two days.

At the complex Saturday afternoon, a cleaning company truck sat parked outside the apartment. Two men opened a trailer hitched to the truck, pulled out bleach and sponges and carried them into the apartment. The porch light was still on in the daylight. I hear he blew her brains out, a boy said, part of a pack of children lined up outside the trailer watching the cleaning men. McBride said he is still in shock about his friends death.

To put it into perspective, transferring a normal students hard drive across the network would take moments. However, students wont use the system. It will be used to transfer large amounts of research data Jacksonville and three other Internet2 test centers. The project, according to a news release, cost $2.4 million between National Science Foundation grants and institutional funding. Erik Deumens, the director of research computing, said the $2.4 million paid for the connection cables, upgrades to campus data centers and a network junction box half the size of a refrigerator. He said UF requested to be part of the program in its drive to become a top 10 public university, and that having such an advanced network will likely make UF attractive to researchers and prospective students. Associate electrical and computer engineering professor Andy Li said that after 40 years of the old Internet, the Internet2 is a turning point of fundamental change.UF joins Internet2 Innovation Platform ALEXA ASENDORFAlligator Contributing WriterMore than 900 people huddled around telescopes to gaze at Jupiter, Orions Belt and countless other celestial bodies in Saturday nights dark sky. The Alachua Astronomy Club, Inc., held a Star Party at Hickory Ranch on the east side of Paynes Prairie Preserve State Park. Members of the club set up telescopes and provided commentary on the cosmos to star gazers. Star Parties offer beginners a chance to become acquainted with the sky and learn about telescopes before purchasing their own, according to the Alachua Astronomy Club website. The event featured hayrides with smores and hot chocolate. Steven Whitaker, who has been an astronomy club member for about three months, used a new telescope he received for Christmas to show Orions Belt to spectators. Ive been looking at stars since I was a little kid, Whitaker said. While many club members live in Gainesville, the Alachua Astronomy Club attracts members from outside of the county who drive in for meetings and events. Tandy Carter, of Lake City, has been a member for 14 years. Carter pointed out the nebula surrounding Orions Belt while giving bystanders a lesson about Jupiter and its moons. I love telling the story of how Galileo discovered the four moons and how that changed not only how we look at the universe but our position in the universe, he said. Carter uses a Meade LX200ACF Schmidt-Cassegrain. The telescope has a feature that allows its user to zero in on a spelow it as it slowly cruises across the sky. Aubrey Primer, a 20-year-old UF public relations junior, said Seeing Jupiter and the nebula around Orions Belt was really cool, she said. I had no idea you could see this many stars in Gainesville. Residents gather at Paynes Prairie to gaze at the starsEvents will be held until Sundaya cheaper and healthier alter native to going out and buying unhealthy products. Houston said that by 11 a.m., more than half of the 441 Farmers Market was sold out. Its tough to get people out here on a Saturday, but weve sold out because of Local Food Week, she said. Meanwhile, about 60 people attended Porters Community Farms open house and barbecue to showcase Gainesopened last fall. The farm includes ten 55foot rows used to grow produce for St. Francis House for the Homeless, according to the Florida Organic Growers website. We bring the food to the St. Francis House by bicycle. We have trailers that attach to our bikes and the charities are right around the corner, said Travis Mitchell, community food project coordinator for FOG and a UF alumna. Mitchell said his goal for ton of produce for charity and beautify the farm. I want to clean it up and make it presentable, so it can be a catalyst for other projects, he said. Mitchell is the only staff member on the farm, but hes not running it alone. He has four interns and a handful of volunteers who help him. Lauren Walls, an intern at FOG, said Saturdays event was to raise awareness about the farm. Its tucked away, and a lot of people still have no idea that it exists. Local Food Week will continue today with an hour-long gardening class hosted by the UFs Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences extension at 2800 NE 39th Ave. It will also continue with other events such as a screening of the documentary GROW! at Jolie Restaurant, 12 W.

MONDAY, FEBRUARY 11, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 5Sarah Fickett / AlligatorTunnel Vision BEATRICE DUPUYAlligator Staff WriterShands at UF announced plans Friday to build a guesthouse for patients families. The guesthouse will be walking distance from Shands on the old Rush Lake Motel property, which is being demolished. David Guzick, president of UF&Shands Health System, said that on certain weekends, when everything is sold out, he gets calls from family members of patients looking for somewhere to stay. Many of our patients more than a daytime trip, Guzick said. The $30 million project is expected to be completed by late 2014 or early 2015. The project is still awaiting city approval. Bradley Pollitt, Shands vice president of facilities, said the guesthouse would have about 150 rooms. We have people who end up sleeping in the lobby sometimes, which is not good for them, he said. If the patient is in Shands ily will need somewhere to stay and will be able to stay in the guesthouse, Guzick said. If you can imagine your loved one in the hospital staying overnight, and youre wor cult to be four miles down the road in a hotel, Pollitt said.Shands to build house for patients relativesC AMPUS MICHELLE JACKSONAlligator Contributing WriterEarly-risers. Athletes. Ambitious students in running shoes. The chill of an 8 a.m. Sunday did not deter them from gathering together in the streets. The Friends for Life of America annual Mile for a Child 5K raised about $650 to donate to the MakeA-Wish Foundation and Camp Boggy Creek. About 30 people ran in the 5K, which began on Gale Lemerand Drive and followed UFs Southwest Recreation Center 5K route. Its really exciting, how much money weve raised, said Meray Ohanessian, Friends for Life president. Its not a huge 5K, but every penny counts. The race is one of four annual events that the club organizes to raise awareness and funds for pediatric cancer research, said Malorie Lipman, the clubs vice president. The members of Friends for Life vote for two organizations to raise money for each year, and this year they chose the MakeA-Wish Foundation and Camp Boggy Creek. Both organizations serve children and families of children with life-threatening illnesses. Friends for Life of America began at UF in 2000, Lipman said. Since then, the organization has spread to schools across the country. The club has about 30 members. Because of its size, its easy for people who are passionate about the cause to get involved, Lipman said. Sebastian Vargas, a 20-year-old UF chemical engineering junior, saw the advertisements for the race at the gym. Although he mainly runs for his health, Vargas knows a close relative who survived cancer as a child. Everyone runs for a reason. If you want to run to get healthier, thats good, Vargas said. Or if you just want to support a cause, thats fantastic.Students gather, race at 5K for pediatric cancer research NICOLE ZAKRZEWSKIAlligator Contributing WriterAfter 14 months of selling used clothing, books and furniture, a downtown Gainesville vintage and resale store closed its doors Saturday afternoon. Loren Keldsen, co-owner of The Eclectic Co. Vintage & Resale Shop, said time and money were the motivating factors behind the store closing. Keldsen owned the store, 103 N. Main Street, with his wife, Anna Keldsen. became time-consuming for him after his wife started working a full-time job at Nationwide Insurance. This fall was slow for business, and the holidays were even worse, he said. We cant afford to put more money into the shop, he said. It has to pay for itself. Kelsen said Holy Trinity Episcopal Church purchased the building in December, and the church plans to use the old building for its youth service program. In the meantime, hell either keep leftover store items or donate them to Haven Hospice. He will donate old books to Friends of the Library. Keldsen said he plans to move to New Jersey to assist the Hurricane Sandy disaster relief and work with a Federal Emer gency Management Agency contractor in the organizations public assistance program. Keldsen said local artists usually gathered at the store to share their creations and make extra money. They will now have to start selling their pieces elsewhere. Pat McCarthy helped run the store in exchange for space to sell homemade food items, photography and jewelry with her husband. She said shes disappointed the shop closed. It was one of those bad things that just didnt catch on fast enough, she said.Vintage store closes, owner to help with Hurricane Sandy relief CAITLIN SINETTAlligator Contributing Writer forming CPR and using automated external ers event Saturday.

Forty-four American Heart Association instructors attended. Everyone showed up, Tucker said. It all came together. Thats the exciting part. She said 508 people attended the event last year. Next year, the organizations are hoping for 1,000 people. Chris Roberts, an 18-year-old UF information systems freshman, said a person never knows when he or she will need to save a life.

Stephen Col-bear: The politician America deservesTheres just something about events that are closed to the media that intrigue us. Why arent we allowed in? What are we missing out on? Last week, the House Democrats hosted its annual retreat. Awesome people like President Barack Obama and Bill Clinton gave inspirational speeches. So did Stephen Colbert. He gave a speech and was interviewed by Nancy Pelosi, which would sound like a pretty awkward thing if it had happened at any other venue. We may have disagreed in the past, and today we will disagree in the future, Colbert said, according to a Democratic aide who supplied a readout of his visit to Politico. Not sure if American people care either way, Congress less popular than colonoscopies but just edging out our meth labs and gonorrhea, he said. Ironically, the last things we make in the United States. Despite his failed attempts to run for the U.S. Senate, we would really appreciate it if Colbert would keep trying. If theres any comedian or pundit who should represent the American people legally, its Colbert. He fools politicians on a daily basis on his Comedy Central show, so he could do that as a political position, and we would fully support it. How does he feel about women? Because women are somehow a hot-button political issue in this country, even though we are just people. Some of my best friends are women, he said at the retreat. I spent nine months in one. The event closed with Colbert and Rep. Joe Crowley, D-N.Y., singing The Star-Spangled Banner together, according to an article on The Washington Posts website. What more could you want in a candidate? His persona, who hosts his late night show, and his real personality present fans and constituents with the best of both worlds: Hes a little bit conservative, and hes a little bit rock n liberal. Colbert could represent every extreme of America if we let him if the American public was only dumb enough to let it happen. If theres one state that we had to convince to do something, it might be pretty easy to sway South Carolina. Lets face it, its no Northeast. Colbert actually has a non-farcical connection to the House Democratic caucus his sister, Elizabeth Colbert-Busch, is running in a special election for South Carolinas 1st District, according to Politico. But as a Democrat, she faces an uphill battle telling House Democrats Friday, Shes going to win. Maybe Sister Colbert would be just as good of an option as Brother Colbert sounds. As a broadcast journalist I am obligated to maintain pure objectivity, Colbert said about his sister during an episode of The Colbert Report last week, before the House Democrat retreat, according to the Christian Science Monitor. It doesnt matter that my sister is intelligent, hardworking, compassionate and dedicated to the people of South Carolina. I will not be mentioning any of that on my show. Do the right thing for once, South Carolina. Nows your chance. Dont mess it up. Imagine that this makes sense to youIve always had a strange obsession with the John Lennon song Imagine. For those of you America-hating morons who dismiss John Lennon as a socialist, you may as well stop reading now. I cant say anything to you that you havent already dismissed with arguments about how the real world ostensibly works and how anyone who sees I look forward to your letters. (Side note yes, Ive heard the Rush Limbaugh Imagine theres no liberals interpretation. It was irreverent, hilarious and not unenjoyable to listen to.) Lets take a necessarily abstract look at how the music of Imagine contributes to the overall effect of the song. One of the direct lyrical ancestors of Imagine was a Yoko Ono poem (I know), which reads in its delicious entirety, Imagine the clouds dripping. Dig a hole in your garden to put them into. This is relevant because the evocative image that a Rolling Stone critic came up with to describe the way lowy a description suggesting the softness and lightness of clouds. above the chord-clouds, into the atmosphere. While were up there, words of peace and comfort dance around us with the sunlight in semidazzling patterns of shifting color. What words they are! Its admittedly easy to dismiss Imagine as overly hippie-ish and totally unrealistic poetry except, lets not. I love what Ringo said about the lyrics in response to the outcry calling them socialist propaganda: [John] said imagine, thats all. Just imagine it. Dig a hole in the garden of your minds to let the clouds drip into. Let the ideas peace, a brotherhood of man germinate there, and they will put down roots. Thats the point of Imagine, and really, of John Lennons whole philosophy. We cant change the world, but we can change ourselves. When one of us consciously decides to stop hating others to stop looking for the bad in everyone and instead look on the street smiles at me instead of walking past with his or her eyes averted, I leave that moment brighter on the inside. For a second, I almost forget the horrors of the world. Every day there is senseless murder, greed to the point of avarice, misunderstanding to the point of hatred. Why? We commit atomic violences against ourselves and others constantly because success is getting ahead. Being ahead necessarily implies that someone is behind you. Success is winning. To win you have to beat someone. So, we convince ourselves that to be happy and comfortable If we dont like what we see in the mirror, we attack the smallest weaknesses in ourselves until they disappear, whimpering. If we see weakness in others, we pick at it until the scab comes off and they bleed. We laugh and move on, And someday, because of our strength, we say, well be rich. Well be powerful and successful. Well have everything we want. But, if everything we want is money, will we ever be rich enough? If everything we want is power, will we ever have enough control? If everything we want is strength, will we ever be able to push the mountains out of the way? Im poor. Im powerless. Im weak. And yet, things really arent that bad. I can laugh. I can sing. I can smile. Why should I engage in destruction just so I can succeed? You may say that Im a dreamer that Im a socialist, not the only one. I hope someday youll join us, and the wo-o-o-orld will live as one. Dallin Kelson is an English senior at UF. His column runs on Mondays. Dallin Kelson opinions@alligator.org

MONDAY, FEBRUARY 11, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 7The article in Fridays Alligator about a Swamp Party email sent to UF fraternity house representatives describes what business as usual is for the party in power. Business as usual is treasurers of each fraternity cutting Swamp Party checks for $250, no questions asked, because it is done every semester and its nothing new. Business as usual is using the I Voted stickers to publicly shame brothers into voting for Swamp Party. Business as usual is preventing people from hearing different viewpoints by slamming the door in the opposing partys face. And I know its business as usual because Ive been there. When I was a sophomore, I was a house representative for the Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity. My job was to collect as many I Voted stickers from my brothers as I could and to make sure those who hadnt voted yet made it to the polls. However, this lack of individual political freedom led me to be so frustrated and so disenfranchised with the system that I decided I couldnt be involved with it anymore. So for the last two years, I ignored Student Government. But this year, I decided I couldnt ignore it anymore. I decided it was time to stand up for whats right for all students to stand up for fair representation at UF and free elections during which no one is coerced into voting a certain way. As a Greek, I know the importance of the Greek community and its ideas. I believe SG from all backgrounds and organizational afserve the interests of every student at UF. Erasing the divide between the Greek community and other students at UF is crucial to making SG an institution we can be proud of. If elected, my administration will never judge people based on their organizational afGreek and non-Greek. Students Party isnt a party just for Greeks or just for non-Greeks. It is a party for all UF students a party to which everyones invited. Johnny Castillo Student Body President candidate The Students PartyLetter to the Editor Swamp Party strives to put the students at the forefront of all its efforts. All of Swamp Partys accomplishments have A driving factor in Swamp Partys proactive efforts is its motivated leaders. Swamp Party chose its leaders because of their gaged with student organizations and constantly work to improve student life. Joseph Michaels and Elliot Grasso exemplify unbiased leadership in Student Government. These individuals accomplishments have supported student organizations and enabled them to reach their full potentials. Joseph Michaels is the chairman of the Budget and Appropriations committee in Student Senate. Prior to his unanimous Student Senate appointment as chairman, he was the longest standing committee member, held two liaison positions within the committee and worked with the past chairperson to eliminate wasteful spending and allow a 6.5 percent increase to each SGfunded organizations budget. As budget hearings approach, he continues to meet with countless organizations to ensure they are comfortable with the budgeting process and understand the guidelines by which they must abide. I dont claim to be a perfect human being, but to attack me in such a way is not indicative of the principles I hope to promote at the University of Florida. I am doing my best to work for the students of this university, and I do not apologize for that. I continue to stand by Swamp Party, as we represent results and a vision for the future, Michaels said. Elliot Grasso is the chairman of the Student Senate Allocations Committee. Under his leadership, the Allocations Committee increased its outreach to student organizations and improved the tions Committee workshop. More than 30 organizations learned how to submit allocations requests and gained a deeper understanding of how the request process works. Elliot Grassos dedication to the Allocations Committee and to the students of this university is apparent in all his hard work and accomplishments, said Joshua Comiter, Allocations Committee vice-chairman. The previous attack on Swamp Party leadership is an expected response from a party that has historically focused on defamation rather than results for the students. These allegations are not only baseless as the codes that funds from organizations but deceptive, as they are used to hide what Swamp Party truly values: results, experience and motivated leaders. Do not be fooled by the groundless accusations. We are here to represent the students. Together for tomorrow, we advocate for every student and student organization. Dekendrick Murray is the Swamp Party President at UF.Swamp Party advocates for students Guest columnDekendrick MurrarySpeaking Out T tutional muscles lately. The Transport Security Administration, under of the president, has been up to no good. The TSA targeted several train stations last month for its activities. Special TSA teams, called VIPR teams, started searching passengers luggage with no explanation. The TSA has been spotted on highways engaging in the same kind of behavior. Despite the casual manner in which the TSA searches people, the Fourth Amendment protects American citizens from unreasonable searches and seizures. This means that any searches and seizures that take place without a search warrant or without probable cause to believe a crime is being committed are unlawful. Yet, these are just the kinds of searches that the TSA does on a routine basis. In 2011, the TSA ran more than 9,300 unannounced checkpoints and search operations. Why is the TSA permitted to continue with these violations? I think part of it is that many of us are complacent. Were not concerned enough to care. Its to the point that people might see an informed citizen as being supererogatory. How often do we decide that politics is a pain, and well leave it to somebody else? How often do we prefer to be blissfully uninformed, mistakenly assuming that informing ourselves wont make a difference? The fact is that it does make a difference when even a single person informs himself or herself, and it is critically important that we all do so. Why is it so important? Because the moment any of us start looking away culture and becomes popular, the people upstairs can rob us blind. Whether its the state trying to take away our rights or a corporation trying to poison us, someone is probably trying to harm us. Its up to us, the populace, to be the conscience of these groups to keep them in line. Bear in mind that the TSA is only one example of how the government violates our rights on a daily basis. Weve slipped up during the years with making sure our Congress has been moral, and now its popular for congresspersons to accept bribes. We call it lobbying. Weve also slipped up during the years with making sure our presidents are moral, and now its routine for them to approve of torture. The current president has even had American citizens killed with drones, which means they never even got a trial. He is also expanding his drone war in Africa and the To think that as a Nobel Peace Prize winner and the leader of the free world, President Barack Obama continues to approve of such atrocities and remain unchecked by the general public is unthinkable. Unfortunately, the majority of people dont seem to care, even when it comes to elections. The United States has repeatedly had one of the poorest voter turnouts of the countries compared in analyses. What are the odds that things will get better by themselves, without the public getting involved? Not very high, I think. We must all commit to informing ourselves and contributing. Anything short of that would be a moral failure and will hurt us all. Brandon Lee Gagne is an anthropology senior at UF.

They will relocate Vine even if the bakery only gets $5,000 from the campaign, Griebel said. The bakerys campaign, which is posted on www.indiegogo.com, has raised about $6,000 from about 80 donors. There are eight days until the campaigns deadline. The crowdfunding is a new model of helping business like this owner of Satchels Pizza. By a $20 donation, a lot of people can chip in and have a great addition to the The owners of Vine plan to relocate the bakery to 627 N. Main St., a location the owners have been inter ested in for a year. The new spot will give the owners a chance to reconstruct the building and get a license to become a restaurant. They will serve organic bread and pasta made with homegrown ingredients. Last summer, Zokovitch and Griebel said, they realized the warehouse where the business is located did not satisfy the vision they have for the bakery.

It then sold to Citizens Co-op, Wards Supermarket and restaurants, Zokovitch said. The more often customers suggested new products, the more the bakery was able to expand their menu, the owners said. I feel like they are making a campaign and idea to relocate downtown because he believes in the bakerys potential. What they need to make a viable business model is they need to sell their products more to the is where the move is really going to help them the most is that theyll get their product in front of the cusHe said he feels that if the bakery had a location where it had some exposure, it could double its business.

See story, page 15. Kristi Camara / AlligatorJunior Scottie Wilbekin (5) attempts a layup during UFs 83-58 victory against Mississippi State on Saturday in the OConnell Center. Freshman Michael Frazier II replaced Wilbekin in the starting lineup because coach Billy Donovan said Wilbekin lacked energy in practice. MICHAEL FRAZIER II STARTED IN PLACE OF SCOTTIE WILBEKIN. KATIE AGOSTINAlligator Staff Writer Florida expected a shorthanded frontcourt in Saturdays game against Mississippi State. On Friday, junior forward Will Yeguete underwent arthroscopic surgery to remove bone chips in his right knee, which will sideline him for 4-6 weeks. Still, the Gators expected to have the same starting lineup. But after lacking energy in Thursday and Fridays practice, Scottie Wilbekin was held out of the starting lineup and Michael Frazier II took his place. It wasnt a bad attitude, it wasnt that he wasnt trying, it wasnt like he quit; it was nothing like that, coach Billy Donovan said. (He was) just not his normal Scottie Wilbekin self in practice (on Thursday). And it continued on Friday. I just told him, Listen, were coming off a tough loss against Arkansas, we need energy, we need passion, and if youre not going to play with passion, were going to start someone else. Its more me making that decision, because I hold Scottie Wilbekin in such a higher regard as it relates to those kind of things. Although Donovan wanted to send a message to Wilbekin, the junior guard registering a team-high 33 minutes. Still, Wilbekin learned his lesson. During Floridas 78-64 win against Arkansas on Tuesday, Wilbekin shot the ball 30 times and only recorded 11 assists. Prior to those games, Wilbekin only averaged 7.1 shots per game. Southeastern Conference) 83-58 win against the Bulldogs (7-15, 2-8 SEC) on Saturday, Wilbekin only put up four shots and dished out seven assists. Scottie is having an unbelievable year, Donovan said. Hes played really, really well, and hes done really good things for our team. I felt like coming out of the Arkansas game, he needed to understand that there were things that he needed to do for our team. I kind of was on him about just making some better decisions and getting us in the road. While Wilbekin was benched, FraFlorida. Frazier recorded 11 points on 4-for7 shooting, six rebounds, three assists and a steal to energize the Gators in Wilbekin and Yeguetes absence. three-pointer to put the Gators up 10-5. In the next two minutes, Frazier picked up two more threes, a rebound, a steal and an assist to help widen UFs lead to 18-10. I just try to come in and provide energy for the team however I can do that, Frazier said. Although the Gators had another dominant double-digit win against the Bulldogs on Saturday, Donovan believes Florida needs to improve its defense before hosting Kentucky on Tuesday. I still think we need to get better (defensively), Donovan said. Anytime you lose a guy like Will Yeguete, your defense is going to be different. Weve got to get even more focused defensively than weve been.

The Gators, playing in their only home tournament of the season at Mark Bostick Golf Course, SunTrust Gator Invitational. But Florida saw its lead slowly slip away in the second round against Florida State. We didnt have anything this week, coach Buddy Alexander said.

I was three over through six, and then I birdied seven and came back on the back end and some bad mistakes, but Ive got to learn from them. Overall, my game is pretty good right now. Ive got to work on it, and I should be good for the next tournament. Still, the biggest surprise of the tournament was not only the play of Eric Banks, but that Banks was playing at all. Coach Alexander expressed doubt that the sophomore would play at all this season after undergoing open-heart surgery last summer. Banks proved that he has not only recovered but ready to get back to his starting role with the team. Banks competed as an individual, but had the best weekend of any Gator. total of 211 (+1).
