Carlton James Mathis, originally from Hall County, Georgia, is the suspect believed to be involved in the murder of a 6-month-old child, according to a report sent by Hall County Sheriffs Alachua County Sheriffs who also had a felony warrant from Georgia on unrelated burglary charges, was in Alachua County after receiving the report around 8:30 p.m. Sunday. provided but learned he may be in the Bronson area of Levy County. After Levy County Sheriffs Department was told of Mathis potential location, an ACSO SWAT team went to Bronson at LCSDs request. Mathis was reportedly seen leaving a residence at Bronson Villas & Villages and getting into a red SUV at about 4:30 a.m. Monday. When SWAT personnel stopped the car, Mathis allegedly threatened the driver of the SUV with a handgun. An ACSO SWAT operator shot Mathis in response. Additional SWAT personnel immediately treated his wounds before taking Mathis to a hospital in the area, according to a press release. The other person in the car and another SWAT operator received minor injuries from glass and/ or shrapnel. The investigation and search for Mathis originally involved deputies and detectives from ACSO, LCSD and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. Dothan Police Department from Alabama was also working on the investigation simultaneously, according to tweets from ACSO. DPD recovered the remains of the infant, which started the search for Mathis. Mathis will be transported to Levy County Jail after being released from the hospital, according to the ACSO press release. He is charged with aggravated assault and is being held for a felony warrant for unrelated burglary charges from Georgia as well as for the outcome of the homicide investigation. The investigation into both the childs case and the shooting is ongoing. Per ACSO policy, FDLE is looking into the shooting incident and the SWAT operator involved is on administrative leave. @jesscurbelo jcurbelo@alligator.orgACSO: Murder suspect arrested Mathis By Alana WilsonAlligator Contributing Writer Lightnin Salvage Enterprises at Satchels A grand reopening was held Friday to celebrate the rebuilding of Lightnin Salvage and a new playground built by UF students.

NEWS AROUND THE WORLDRights group says US-led coalition destroyed Syrian city BEIRUT An international human rights group Tuesday accused the U.S. and its allies of showing little regard for civilians lives while attacking the Syrian city that was once the defacto capital of the Islamic State extremist group, an allegation denied by the American military. Amnesty International said the U.S.-led coalitions 2017 assault on Raqqa killed hundreds of civilians and reduced sections of the city to rubble. Researchers for Amnesty interviewed more than 100 residents and visited 42 coalition targets in the city in a two-week period in February. They published their findings in a report titled War of Annihilation, in a reference to the language used by U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis in the lead-up to the campaign. When so many civilians are killed in attack after attack, something is clearly wrong, said Donatella Rovera, one of the researchers who visited the city. U.S. Army Col. Sean Ryan, spokesman for the coalition, called the assertions grossly inaccurate. He said the coalition and allied Syrian forces organized safe passages for residents to flee, but IS militants trapped them inside to use as human shields. When you have an enemy that uses noncombatants as collateral damage, its very difficult when you fight an enemy like that to completely avoid any casualties, Ryan said. 90 VOLUME 112 ISSUE 92NEWSROOM Editor Engagement Managing Editor University Editor Metro Editor Sports Editor Assistant Sports Editor Editorial Board Photo Editor the Avenue Editor Copy Desk Chief Copy Editors DISPLAY ADVERTISING Advertising Director Intern Coordinator Sales Representatives CLASSIFIED ADVERTISING BUSINESS Administrative Assistant Comptroller Bookkeeper ADMINISTRATION General Manager Assistant General Manager Administrative Assistant President Emeritus SYSTEMS IT System EngineerPRODUCTION Production Manager Assistant Production Manager Advertising Production Staff Editorial Production Staff


By Sloan SavageAlligator Staff WriterTaste of Greater Gainesville held its ninth annual fundraising event in the Exactech Arena at the OConnell Center on Sunday evening. Each year the event raises nizations helping children in the Gainesville area. ties were the Child Advocacy Center, PACE Center for Girls Alachua, Ronald McDonald House Charities of North Central Florida and Tylers Hope for a Dystonia Cure. Sherry Houston, executive director of Ronald McDonald House Charities of North Central Florida, said it is an honor to work with the three other charities for the event. Rarely do you see four charities come together, and the collaboration is much more powerful, Houston said. Who doesnt love to eat and drink and try different restaurants? The fellowship of people in Gainesville is powerful. The event featured tastings from 40 food vendors, an Iron Chef competition and a silent aucwas held in the OConnell Center. Catherine Perkinson, event coordinator for Taste of Greater Gainesville, said moving the event from its previous location at the Hilton UF Conference Center Hotel to the OConnell Center was an improvement. The size of the OConnell Center allowed for more people, more vendors and the space to do live video production of the Iron Chef competition, Perkinson said. The Iron Chef competition is a highlight of the event for most guests, Perkinson said. In the competition, three local chefs create an appetizer, entree and dessert plate using a secret ingredient. The winner earns the title of Gainesville Iron Chef. This years secret ingredient was citrus. Scott Costello, owner of Advantage Publishing Inc. and founder of Taste of Greater Gainesville, created the charity after attending many other charity events through his company. We attended over 200 events a year, and I started making lists of things I would do if I did an event, Costello said. Instead of trying to change existing organizations, I decided to create my own based on charities I cared about and the things I would enjoy doing at events the most. Rick Staab, founder of Tylers Hope for a Dystonia Cure, said the awareness the event creates and the money it raises helps his organization to treat kids locally. Its been really impactful on us, Staab said. Its the largest of our own events. @sloanasavage TUESDAY, JUNE 5, 2018 ALLIGATOR 3 Chef Nester Espartero of Volcanic Sushi + Sake celebrates his teams Iron Chef victory at Taste of Greater Gainesville 2018.

Dr. Ramon Bautista, associate chair of neurology at UF Health Jacksonville, said the department started the initiative about a decade issues faced by a neglected population over the years. Starting something like this is going to help them improve their quality of life and be able to go about their daily lives knowing that someone is looking out for them, Bautista said. Julianne May, a 26-year-old Gainesville resident who was diagnosed with epilepsy at 16, thinks the center will be a great step in educating and providing support for people with epilepsy. Being that people with epilepsy are more susceptible to anxiety and depression, it becomes a toxic situation, May said. But if youre going to a wellness center that focuses on your mental health and needs, then you can avoid that toxic situation. The center has a starting fund of about $150,000 and is funded by several foundations such as Florida Blue Foundation, Jessie Ball duPont Fund, Riverside Hospital FoundaMedicine Jacksonville. Bautista said he hopes the department will help with other challenges epilepsy patients face in the future such as sleep issues and employment. He also wants to provide more resources for caretakers. Patients will be enrolled in courses at the beginning of June. The plan is to grow this and not just be content with offering services for a couple of years or so, said Bautista. But to try to be better and streamline the services and make it more tuned to the needs of our patients.UF Health Jacksonville launches epilepsy center this monthgust 2017, after researching and planning throughout the summer.

TUESDAY, JUNE 5, 2018 ALLIGATOR 7 T modest clothing collection, LTD. It comes just in time for the Muslim month of Ramadan, a holy time for Muslims around the world. H&M has not explicitly stated that cultural diversity is the target of the campaign, but they have said we want to be diverse and inclusive to all the markets. H&M didnt start this trend. The Modist is of dress. Brands that are traditionally considered nonmodest have recently curated modest collections. These ion week sponsored by Modanisa, one of the largest brands in the modest industry. Modest fashion is a quickly growing market around the world and includes women of all ethnicities and religions. Forbes estimated that in 2015, modest fashion purchases were worth $44 billion, approximately 18 percent of the clothing industry. numbers all over YouTube and Instagram. Some are unimpressed with H&Ms new attempt at inclusivity. Dina Torkia, a self-proclaimed modest fashion blogger, says it looks just like regular H&M and whenever brands do this, its so heavily inspired by Muslim cultures around the worldwe can already get that stuff. As brands enter this new territory, there are many questions that need to be answered. Because modesty is so subjective, brands are struggling with understanding what modest really means. Are modest customers looking for ethnic styles or modern ones? Its unclear whether modest dressers appreciate brands catering to their needs or if they prefer not to feel further excluded to a small portion of the store. We like whats on the high street, it just needs a few adjustments, like a slightly longer sleeve, or not see-through top says Torkia. A quick look at the LTD line suggests a failure on H&Ms part. Many of the pieces have low necklines, are made of revealing material or are not ankle-length. Companies attempting to cater to the modest demographic must consider whether they are truly looking to serve the customer or just looking for good publicity. H&M recently had an incident with a black child model wearing an offensive slogan tee that led to public outrage. Positive and intentional representation of diversity is something they need. Regardless of whether H&Ms line was a success, there is something to be said for the attempt. Fashion is something that so many women enjoy, and they all deserve to be represented in the industry, especially if they are one of the biggest customers. Modest dressers, especially Muslim women, have demanded the attention of the biggest brands, and that is a win. Layla Soboh is a UF advertising junior. Her column comes out Tuesday. You might know this person: he or she has a few guns, strongly supports Second Amendment rights and distrusts the government. Part of the reason they have so many guns is that the government cannot be trusted youll need their armed support to combat an authoritarian and tyrannical Washington one day. Two bumper stickers are neighbors on the rear of their forOne reads, Support the Troops, the other, The right to bear arms is our only protection from government tyranny. In this day and age, that job is better done by the First Amendment than the Second. Lets address the 800-pound gorilla in the room. Or should I say the 62-ton tank. The likelihood of a ragtag band of gun owners routing the U.S. military in small-arms combat is very small. The F-35, a combat aircraft you proudly support with tax dollars, has laser-guided munitions. The laser pointer on your handgun does not stand a chance. The idea that gun owners could collectively organize and complete a revolution against an American government with malicious intent is not only misguided in its intention, its ignorant in fact. I saw another bumper sticker the other day I think speaks to the mistaken idea at the center of gun owners against tyranny. It read The Second Amendment: the Original Homeland Security. All of these gun-loving bumper stickers make bold claims about training your average AR15 owner. Times have changed. Weapons technology has evolved. The Second Amendment was written at a time when a militia, fewer in number but greater in spirit and conviction (and under the command of trained generals), bested the military of one of the most powerful empires. The First Amendment is a bigger obstacle to tyranny than the Second politics aside. Lets talk military strategy. To wage an insurgency, the force fewer in number needs lots of people on their side. For that to happen, they need the crimes, usurpations and injustices perpetrated by the government to be displayed on the front page and on television screens. Having a gun isnt as good as having 30 or 40 well-informed people voting against the government you would have been shooting at. Before you take to the streets against a Bradley Fighting Vehicle, designed by your tax dollars to be, think about what youre giving up for your gun.

You saw it in the tears welling up in the eyes of the players, and you heard it in the cracks of their voices and in the deep, unplanned breaths taken between phrases. However, despite being eliminated by Oklahoma at the Womsecond-straight season, the Florida Gators should have no shame in how they played in 2018. son and tournament titles, exhibited one of the nations most dominant bullpens and sent off one of the programs all-time great senior classes. And losing to a tough Oklahoma team during a lightsout performance by senior pitcher Paige Parker is not a variable that UF could control. I told my team after the game theres not a whole lot you can do when you got a pitcher (throwing) strike one all day long, coach Tim Walton said after the game. I give a wonderful job. Although it came up short in Oklahoma City, UF eased through its regular season with a 47-8 record and a 20-4 record in conferfour games back at 16-8. The effort lifted Florida to the tournament, where it navigated past powerhouse programs Alaniors on the Gators roster pitcher Aleshia Ocasio, catcher Janell Wheaton, third baseman Nicole championships.

Opponents only hit .119 against the right-hander in 2018 and didnt hit together complete-game no-hitFlorida on March 21, including Gators 9-0 win over North Florida on Feb. 14. no-hitters against Baylor on March 3 and again at the Gainesville Regional against Bethune-Cookman on May 18. Yet, the senior pitcher had two hitless games of her own, which came against Florida International on March 28 and in regional play Natalie Lugo to no-hit Hampton on March 30. Wheaton and pitching coach Jennifer Rocha were the only two Gators to have a hand in all of the hitless performances. In her head coach, Rocha marshalled the Florida bullpen to 10 hitless performances and a 1.43 ERA as a team. With Rocha calling the games pitch by pitch, and Lorenz and Barnhill returning for the Gators, the future is bright. Yet, the importance of their exiting senior class cannot be overlooked. Ocasio, Wheaton, DeWitt and ers remaining from the 2015 National Championship roster. The experience they brought to the team goes beyond the wins and losses. Ocasio was a utility player with was comfortable at every position aside from catcher and played in tric bat that knocked in 36 runs last season. Ill never play with an athlete like that ever again, Lorenz said lifetime kid that Ive been around. Wheaton caught nearly every game for Florida this season.
