Former senator



talks health care


* DASCHLE STRESSED THE
IMPORTANCE OF REFORM.

By CJ PRUNER
Alligator Writer

For former Sen. Tom Daschle,
who served as majority leader
and is an expert on health care
policy, the number one serves as
a reminder of how far the United
States has to go in its quest to re-
form the health care system.
"We're the No. 1 country in
terms of (health care) costs and
37th in outcome," Daschle said in
a speech Tuesday evening in Pugh
Hall. "We need to rise to the chal-
lenge."
Daschle spoke to a crowd of
250 and outlined the issues of the
health care debate.
He discussed topics including
the extent of the government's role
in health care reform and the costs


associated with reform.
Daschle labeled the differing
viewpoints in the health care de-
bate as the "noise of democracy"
and said both sides share blame in
the failure to achieve a true biparti-
san approach to health reform.
"We're the No. 1 country
in terms of (health care)
costs and 37th in outcome.
We need to rise to the chal-
lenge."
Tom Daschle
former U.S. senator

Although health care legisla-
tion, which passed through the
House and Senate, appears to be on
the verge of becoming law, Dasch-
le was quick to point out there is
still much work to be done.
"We're on the 30-yard line with

STUDENT GOVERNMENT

Students get Reitz fee vote


By ELIZABETH BEHRMAN
Alligator Writer

Senators discussed giving a voice to UF
students on a potential Reitz Union fee and at
Tuesday night's Senate meeting.
The Student Senate unanimously passed
a bill that will put a question about the Reitz
Union expansion fee on the Student Govern-
ment spring election ballot.
The proposed question has two parts.
It asks students whether a fee should be im-
plemented, and, if so, whether it should cover
expansion and repairs.
Senators amended the bill to include more
information about how the fee will be used.
Unite Party Sen. Alex Masi, who represents
the Rawlings area, presented the amendment
to the original bill.
He said rephrasing the question makes it
clear for students what the fee will be going
toward.


"The hands-down goal of this is to help stu-
dents understand what's going on," Masi said.
The new version of the question tells vot-
ers the Reitz Union is more than 40 years old,
needs an estimated $40 million in repairs and
was originally built for only 19,000 students.
Progress Party Sen. Matt Vernon, who rep-
resents graduate students,
said the background infor-
mation is useful for voters,
and the referendum ques-
tion requires two different
parts.
Orange and Blue Part
Charles Sen. Jon Ossip, who repre-
sents the Murphree Com-
mon Area, said the information about the Reitz
Union should be supplemented by information
about the additional financial burden the fee
will place on graduate students and students at
satellite campuses.

NATIONAL

Student leaders weigh in on Obama's first year


By MATT HARRINGER
Alligator Contributing Writer


Today marks President Obama's first
year in office, and UF political groups
have differing views on how his term is
going.
Bryan Griffin, UF College Republicans
executive director, said the president's
stimulus was poorly designed.
Florida College Democrats President
Ben Cavataro disagrees.
"The administration's quick action
averted a deeper recession," Cavataro
said.
In the last year, Obama signed a $787
billion stimulus bill, managed two wars,
presided over a health care brawl, avoided
a Christmas terrorist attack and respond-
ed to one of the worst natural disasters in
the Western Hemisphere.
And all the action has cost him in the
polls. A year ago, Obama saw an ap-
proval rating of more than 60 percent on
Real Clear Politics' national polling aver-
age. Today, he has a rating lower than 50
percent.
The St. Petersburg Times' Obameter,
which tracks the president's campaign
promises, says Obama has kept 91 of
those promises, compromised on 33 and
failed on 14.
Many of those 91 fulfilled promises
deal with the stimulus bill passed in Feb-
ruary. In addition to giving states funding
to fill their budget gaps, the stimulus bill
also included funding for high-speed rail,
green-energy job training and extended
unemployment insurance.


Obama also kept his promise to refo-
cus on Afghanistan when he issued an
order in February to send two additional
brigades to the country.
At the time of Obama's inauguration,
there were about 34,000 American troops
in Afghanistan. Today there are more
than double that number, according to the
Department of Defense.
Furthering his deployment of troops,
Obama announced in December he would
be sending an additional 30,000 soldiers to
bring the total to about 100,000 troops.
Cavataro and Griffin agreed the presi-
dent was doing a good job in Afghani-
stan, but Griffin added
he hoped the president
would fulfill all of the
war's requirements.
One major promise
made during the cam-
paign was not to raise
States on families mak-
Obama ing less than $250,000.
Obama compromised
on this promise when he signed an excise
cigarette tax increase to help pay for the
State Children's Health Insurance Pro-
gram.
Cavataro said this is a stretch to call
it a tax on the middle class. He said he
believes if health care reform passes, the
middle class will actually save money.
Griffin disagreed, saying the middle
class and the rich both need tax cuts.
"They're forgetting about the people
who support the entitlement programs,"
Griffin said. "People making over $250,000
need tax cuts as well."
Of the 14 campaign promises Obama


has broken, according to the St. Peters-
burg Times, one of them was broken with
the flick of a pen early in his presidency.
Obama said he would post non-emer-
gency bills on the White House Web site
for five days of public comment before
signing them, but he broke this promise
with his first piece of legislation.
The Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act was
signed by the president just two days
after being passed by Congress and was
never posted on the White House Web
site as Obama promised.
Recently, Republicans have criticized
Obama for breaking his promise to tele-
vise health care negotiations on C-SPAN.
Two deals brokered with the phar-
maceutical industry and hospitals were
behind closed doors, and the House-Sen-
ate conference to merge health care bills
won't be open to the public either.
Griffin blamed Speaker of the House
Nancy Pelosi for these broken promises.
"A lot of those had to do with the way
Pelosi operates," Griffin said. "I think
Obama caved in to Pelosi and [Senate Ma-
jority Leader Harry] Reid."
Cavataro said the bill that wasn't post-
ed on the Web site wasn't very controver-
sial and pointed to some of the tough rules
on lobbyist the White House has enacted
to make government more ethical.
While it's been a busy 365 days for the
44th U.S. president, Obama still has many
promises to keep during the next three
years.
Health care legislation is stalled in
Congress, and the president has yet to
repeal the army's "Don't Ask Don't Tell"
policy or pass a major energy bill.

Grant aims to keep civil


rights movement alive


By ERICA JOHNSON
Alligator Writer

As memories of the civil rights move-
ment begin to blur and tales of integration
fade with time, the Samuel Proctor Oral
History Program is striving to bring these
stories back into focus.
The program received a three-year,
$150,000 grant to collect and share stories of
local black residents who grew up during
the civil rights movement.
The grant was awarded by the UF Of-
fice of the Provost, and the project was de-
veloped after conversations between Paul
Ortiz, the program's director, and UF Presi-
dent Bernie Machen, according to a press
release.
Ortiz believes that as the number of
living black people who remember inte-
gration begins to dwindle, it is essential
to collect their stories before they are lost
forever, leaving only the history offered in
textbooks.
"History really matters to people as they
get older, and it isn't about facts and dates;
it's about feelings," Ortiz said.
He said the project focuses on oral his-
tories of black people who came of age
around the time of Brown vs. the Board of
Education in 1954.
"We want to see what the transition
was like in the everyday lives of blacks in
Gainesville and across the county," Ortiz
said.
He said the project's goal is to make the


information collected in the interviews ac-
cessible to the public in the form of pod-
casts, Web sites and a book.
The podcasts can be accessed all over the
world on iTunes, with one listener in Bei-
jing, China, Ortiz said.
Transcripts from the interviews are on
the UF Digital Library Center Web site and
are already being used by students to write
term papers and reports, Ortiz said.
UF students play a huge role in the inter-
view process.
Of the 40 interviews
already conducted, two-
thirds of them were done
by UF undergraduate
students, Ortiz said.
"They often say
things to me like, 'This
Ortiz interview changed my
life,"' he said. "They
say, 'I learned more about history in that
30-minute interview than I have in all the
textbooks I've read.'"'
Jason Horton, a sociology senior, was
nervous when he sat down to conduct his
first interview.
He spoke with the first black graduate of
the UF College of Nursing.
Horton said his two-hour conversation
with Evelyn Mickle helped him develop a
new appreciation for the challenges faced
by the pioneers of integration.
"Her strength and perseverance showed
me how my own struggles are so small," he
said.


Cold threatens animals


* WEATHER SHOCK CAN CAUSE
ANIMALS TO FREEZE TO DEATH.

By TAYLOR DIXON
and ROBERT IMFELD
Alligator Contributing Writers

This month's cold snap left its mark
on reptiles and bats all across Florida and
worried animal experts.
Cindi Marks, co-founder and executive
director of the Florida Bat Conservancy,
said some species of bats abundant in
Florida may not be able to withstand the
effects of the winter cold.
Jonathan Miot, assistant professor at
the Santa Fe College Teaching Zoo, said
iguanas, like other reptiles, are suffering
from cold shock.
"Due to the extraordinary cold weather
in Florida, the heat these animals are ab-
sorbing is not enough to sustain normal
metabolism," Miot said.
The slowing metabolism rate causes
reptiles to freeze. Although it is possible
for these animals to rebound from the cold
shock, sustained cold could cause them to
freeze to death, Miot said.
During extreme cold weather, the SFC
Teaching Zoo takes its animals indoors or
provides supplemental heat sources and
bedding. However, animals in the wild
aren't so lucky.
Bats essentially shut down during tor-
por, a phase similar to hibernation, begin-
ning with temperatures in the low 50s,
Marks said, and waking up from torpor to


find food consumes a lot of energy.
"There are no insects during the cold
weather, so the bats are staying in torpor
longer," Marks said.
On campus, the Brazilian free-tailed
bat is most at risk because it is a species na-
tive to more tropical climates and not used
to going into torpor for so long. The other
types of bats that live in the UF bat house
are native to the north.
"We really aren't totally sure how it
will affect these species," Marks said.
Florida bats go into torpor for a cou-
ple of weeks at a time, depending on the
temperature. The highest low in January
was 55, and the forecast
Local for the rest of January does
News not show the lows rising
above 60, according to Ac-
cuWeather.com.
Including data from December 2009,
which did not show lows rising above 51
beginning Dec. 18, it is possible the bats
will face almost six consecutive weeks of
torpor-causing weather.
The bats in the UF bat house are doing
fine for now, said Ken Glover, pest man-
agement coordinator for UF.
"In previous times, I've had some bats
that would fall out," he said. He would
find them frozen on the ground near the
bat house.
UF sophomore Colleen Thomas said
she wants the warm weather to return
soon for her as well as the animals' sake.
"If I ever walked by the bat house and
saw a frozen bat on the ground, I would
scream," she said.

STUDENT LIFE

Student


groups


rally to


help Haiti

By ELIZABETH BEHRMAN
Alligator Writer

In the aftershocks of last week's
earthquake in Haiti, UF students
have rallied together to raise
funds and supplies to send to the
victims of the disaster.
Gators United for Haiti, a stu-
dent group originally founded in
2008 but reorganized following
the disaster, has united with UF
administrators to raise $50,000 to
send to the small, impoverished
Caribbean country.
So far, the umbrella organiza-
tion, which includes such groups
as Club Creole, Student Govern-
ment, Hope for Haiti and VISA,
has raised about $4,000.
"People started to see the
effects and then became
more willing to contribute."
Angela Pierre
public relations chairwoman for
Club Creole

Jennifer Oxilien, public rela-
tions chairwoman for Hope for
Haiti, said the organization start-
ed collecting money, clothing and
relief supplies last Tuesday. The
group will continue collecting do-
nations throughout the week, she
said.
Angela Pierre, public relations
chairwoman for Club Creole, said
the club has raised more than $600
since last Wednesday in addition
to collecting food and clothes in
the drop zones around campus.
Pierre said as time goes on,
more students are willing to make
donations because they are more
aware of the situation in the af-
fected areas of Haiti.
"People started to see the ef-
fects and then became more will-
ing to contribute," she said.
Beth Waltrip, director for cam-
pus programs for the Reitz Union,
said Gators United for Haiti lead-
ers have been unable to decide
where to send the donations.
However, she added Gators
United for Haiti is looking to other
student organizations that want to
be involved in the relief effort to
help decide where the relief pack-
ages and funds will be sent.
Sky Georges, the president of
Gators United for Haiti, said it has
been great to see the UF commu-
nity assembling together for one
cause.
"I just thank everybody for
finding it in their hearts to serve
the Haitian community," he said.

Blonde Moment

'Gossip Girl' star too

self-involved

It's been one week since the earthquake hit Haiti, and
people across the campus, country and world are joining
together to provide relief for those affected.
The Editorial Board is glad to see that celebrities are joining
in the effort too. Instead of buying Patron for their entourages
or cars for their mamas, they're putting the ridiculous sums of
money they receive for doing little to no work to good use.
We weren't surprised to hear Brangelina donated $1 million
to Doctors without Borders.
But we were quite pleased when we read George Clooney
and Wyclef Jean have stepped up to host Friday's "Hope for
Haiti Now" telethon.
Not to mention the all-star list of musicians who have signed
on to perform like Justin Timberlake, Rihanna and Bruce Spring-
steen (just to name a few).
However, some celebs have more important issues on their
minds namely Taylor Momsen (you know, the really skinny
blonde girl who wears too much eye makeup and plays Jenny
Humphrey on the CW's "Gossip Girl").
During an interview with OK! Magazine, the reporter
asked her about her thoughts on the disaster and she replied
"Um, right now I'm trying to just finish my record and getting
through the last season of 'Gossip Girl' for right now. So not so
much thinking about that."
Now, if it were any other issue, the Editorial board would
defend "Gossip Girl" to its death (we do make the whole office
suffer through watching it every Monday), but not this time.
Momsen needs to get her act together and realize there are
more important things than her record, which will most likely
result in complete failure anyway. If you're going to make us
suffer through your wannabe rock star performance, at least do
it for a good cause.


Winter Warning


With winter setting
in and word of
the FDA crack-
ing down on barely visible
tanning bed warnings, the
Editorial Board is urging
students to forgo sun-kissed
bronze in favor of pasty
white or even Gators-
themed fake orange.
We know Floridians use
the term "winter" lightly, and
we don't expect you to hiber-
nate along with the sun, but
every year, it becomes more
evident that tanning is a care-
less practice.
According to an Associat-
ed Press article, the FDA final-
ly noticed that the warnings
on tanning beds are less than
menacing and is beginning to
explore stricter regulation of
tanning studios.
We're all for the crackdown
- we've Googled "melano-
ma," and it's not pretty.
The World Health Organi-


zation found that the risk of
skin cancer jumps by about 5
percent when people use tan-
ning beds in their teens and
20s. Sure, there's a chance the
data is skewed or it's all a big
conspiracy, but do you re-
ally want to take the risk? We
don't.
OK, we know most of you
are already rolling your eyes,
and that's fine. But we'll be
rolling ours when you whine
about the scar from the mole
you had removed from your
cheek.
We don't expect you to
start bathing in sunblock and
wearing veils when you leave
the apartment. We just ask
you to think about which is
more attractive: Slightly pale
legs or ones with a big nasty
scar from where doctors re-
moved cancerous flesh? We're
thinking the former. Because
looking like a vintage Coach
bag by the time you're 40 is
just not cute.

UF should not require health insurance


after my father lost his job in November 2008, my
family's health insurance coverage lapsed. Al-
though he found work and, consequently, cov-
erage for himself in April, the rest of the family can't
join until March 2010. So, for the only year my mother
and I have ever been without insurance, we have tiptoed
through our lives, avoiding what health risks we could.
My mother rationed out her thyroid medication at the ex-
pense of her memory and happy temperament. I stockpiled
over-the-counter pain relievers and cough suppressants in
case I had to ride out an influenza storm. It never came. In-
stead, a week before fall classes started, I felt stabbing pains
in my abdomen, which a walk-in clinic doctor diagnosed as
either appendicitis or pain from a cyst. Against my will and
money-driven mentality, I went to the ER for a night and left
with a bill for $18,000 in my name. That didn't include sur-
gery. The doctors wouldn't perform any but the most imper-
ative (lifesaving) operations on someone without insurance.
Perhaps you can see how walking around campus with a
10-centimeter cyst would tune me into the rumblings of re-
quired health insurance for UF students.
While shocking to students still on their parents' plans or
with insurance through work, a chunk of the Student Body
goes without insurance each year. In fact, estimates by the
Student Health Care Center and UF surveys indicate the
number of uninsured students is somewhere between 10,000
and 15,000. Why would all of these people take the risk of
not buying health insurance, especially when the university
provides a discounted policy? Much of this 20 to 30 percent
of the Student Body is comprised of stereotypical starving
students. We just can't afford it.
With phrases like "7 percent annual increase in college
costs" flying around, I checked the math. Accounting for my
normal spending, a purchase of the comprehensive Aetna
plan offered through the school would result in a 20 to 25
percent increase in costs. Of course, this calculation applies


Cynthia Despres to my own situation.
Speaking Out Faced with a spike in costs, stu-
dents on an already tight budget
would have to choose to leave the
college, take out a (second) loan or get a (second) job. These
options stink.
Beyond the payment problem, the argument for mandat-
ing health insurance is on shaky ground to begin with: Why
would medical bills cause students to drop out of college?
Yes, collectors ask for bills to be paid, and the sums inflate to
massive amounts when not negated by insurance. However,
unlike with other payments, the collectors don't demand the
bills be paid immediately. With the burden of time lifted, a
medical bill acts almost like a student loan: Most collectors
are satisfied if the patient makes plans to pay the debt.
Even if everyone can scrounge up money to pay for in-
surance, I have problems with the proposal. Although pre-
existing conditions don't affect all Gators, they cause kinks in
the argument for mandated insurance. As I know from expe-
rience, obtaining an insurance plan covering known condi-
tions can prove exhausting. My mother called around to sign
me up for a plan immediately after my hospital visit. She was
prepared to spend money we didn't have to guarantee an
operation, but while the insurance companies would readily
take the cash, they wouldn't provide funds for surgery.
If forced into health insurance, people with pre-existing
conditions which can range from asthma and high blood
pressure to cancer and heart disease may be denied cover-
age for their worst medical problems.
In spite of the unanswered questions, kudos goes to Stu-
dent Body President Jordan Johnson for understanding this
predicament and the widespread impact it could have on the
Student Body. Everyone should fight for what's right for this
university. Required health insurance could make our school
more exclusive on a financial basis rather than on an academ-
ic one, and that's not what the Gator Nation stands for.
Cynthia Despres is a journalism junior.

Letters to the Editor
Ignoring local church is the only solution
In response to Paul Murty's column:
Thank you for your intelligent column on Fri-
day about ignoring the Dove World Outreach
Center members when they preach intoler-
antly on campus.
I agree with you completely; ignoring
them is the only way to be rid of them. I am
not a Christian, but I know the teachings of
Jesus include much about tolerance.
Besides, the word "Christian" is derived
from Christ. Thus, being Christ-like certainly
means exhibiting tolerance and inclusion.
Perhaps the Dove World Outreach Center
should look closely at the life of the founder
of their religion.
For that matter, perhaps we all should do
the same with our own beliefs.
Nora F. Zaki


Response to sex column is spot-on
Joe Dellosa, thank you for writing your
column, "Infidelity should not be normal-
ized," in Tuesday's Alligator. I agree with
you wholeheartedly.
I have always thought very strongly that
cheating on someone is the worst thing a per-
son can do to another.
The repercussions are long-lasting.
The cheated-on may have trust issues, and
the cheater may feel that they can cheat re-
peatedly, not understanding what they really
are doing.
You are spot-on when you say that it is
about respect, and to me, there is no justifi-
cation, ever, for disrespecting another person
(especially someone you care about) in this
manner.

France is misrepresented as having 'clean'nuclear programs


Tt is perhaps no accident that the nuclear
power industry chose a French word, "re-
aissance," to promote its alleged come-
back. Attached to this misapplied moniker are
a series of fallacious suggestions that nuclear
energy is "clean," "safe" and even "renew-
able." And, in keeping with its French flavor,
a key argument in the industry's propaganda
arsenal is that the U.S. should follow the "suc-
cessful" example of the French nuclear pro-
gram.
France serves as a convenient sound bite
for politicians and others advocating a nuclear
revival (hypocritically evoked by many of the
same people who insisted on "Freedom Fries"
at the start of the Iraq War). A failure to chal-
lenge this facile falsehood has cemented the
myth of a French nuclear utopia in the minds


of the public. It masks a very different reality.
France gets 80 percent of its electricity from
nuclear power. However, this alone does not
constitute a success. Rather, it results in the
production of an enormous amount of radio-
active waste that, as is the case for all other nu-
clear countries, has nowhere to go. France has
no operating geological repository for nuclear
waste. To date, therefore, it has resorted to
reprocessing, a highly contaminating chemi-
cal process that separates uranium and pluto-
nium while releasing large quantities of liquid
and aerial radioactivity into the environment.
Nuclear energy has not gained France en-
ergy independence. France imports all ura-
nium used in its 58 reactors having aban-
doned the last of its 210 uranium mines in
2001. These latter also produced a large waste


Linda Gunter stream, including tail-
Speaking Out ings (radioactive rocks
and soils) that have
been used to pave chil-
dren's playgrounds and public parking lots.
Today, French uranium is imported largely
from Niger where Areva which, despite
its corporate appearance, is 90 percent gov-
ernment-owned has mined for 40 years. Its
legacy in one of the poorest countries on the
planet is one of depleted and contaminated
water, wide dispersal of radioactive dust and
discarded radioactive metals that have been
sold in local markets and used in homes. Nor
can nuclear meet all French electricity needs.
During heat waves and droughts, the French
have been forced to power down or close more
than a third of their nuclear plants, which rely


on water sources such as rivers and lakes
for cooling. None of this has deterred Areva
or EDF from driving aggressively into new
nuclear markets, especially the U.S., where
Aerva is promoting its huge Evolutionary
Power Reactor (EPR), with seven targeted at
six U.S. sites. Since new reactors are too expen-
sive to build unless federally funded, EPRs in
the U.S. could result in American tax dollars
flowing to the French government. However,
French nuclear success overseas has proved as
elusive as it is at home. All but two of the U.S.
EPRs are now on the back burner or canceled
altogether.
Linda Gunter is co-founder of Beyond Nuclear
and specializes in researching the French nuclear
sector.

Students to tear

IVilrid rrllua / mlldiui OldlI
Jamison Duncan, a history and education major, paints an insult he found offensive on a cinder block for the
Writing on the Wall Project Tuesday afternoon.


By NICOLE LYNN GREINER
Alligator Contributing Writer

Bricks with statements in-
cluding "You aren't smart
enough to do that" and "Ho-
mos are sinners" were stacked
on the Reitz Union North
Lawn Tuesday.
Students decorated the
bricks as part of the Writing
on the Wall Project. Through
the project, students paint the
bricks with hurtful or offen-
sive statements and will build
a wall using the bricks Mon-
day.
On Jan. 29, students will
gather in the Plaza of the
Americas to tear down the
wall.
"We want people to think
before they say that hurtful
statement," said Cary War-
setsky, a chemical engineering
junior and the administrative
director for the Writing on the
Wall Project. "If we can make


someone a little bit happier,
then I think we've done a good
job."
Warsetsky said students
can write whatever they want
on the bricks unless it is a
personal attack that includes
someone's name.
UF freshman Shalonda
Lewis said the project is in-
teresting because it shows the
perspectives of others.
"To me or you, 'Jew,' is not
an insult, but to other people it
could be," Lewis said.
Lewis wrote "WhoRE" on
her brick.
"I think we tend to pre-
judge others and go off what
they have on rather than who
they are," she said.
The project will continue
on the Plaza of the Americas
today and Thursday from 8
a.m. to 3 p.m. Students can
also paint bricks at the Reitz
Union North Lawn on Friday
from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.


Law professor: airport


body scanners legal


By ALLYSON FOX
Alligator Contributing Writer

Privacy is one thing travelers may
soon have to do without.
According to a recent USA Today/
Gallup poll following the attempted
Christmas Day bombing of Northwest
Flight 253, 78 percent of Americans sup-
port the use of new airport scanners that
create a more revealing image of the
subject than a simple X-ray.
John Stinneford, assistant professor
of law at the UF Levin College of Law,
said the new body scanners do not vio-
late the Fourth Amendment's unreason-
able search and seizure clause.
"What is reasonable depends on what
we expect," Stinneford said.
If the government shows reason for
conducting the full-body scans, travel-
ers won't be able to refuse, said Juan F.
Perea, a law professor at the UF Levin
College of Law.
"It's just something we need to get
used to," he said.


Sari Koshetz, Transportation Secu-
rity Administration spokesperson, said
the new scanner's images are anony-
mous, adding that passengers' faces are
blurred.
"What is reasonable depends
on what we expect."
John Stinneford
assistant professor of law at the UF
Levin College of Law

Although Orlando International Air-
port and Gainesville Regional Airport
do not use the new scanners, Jackson-
ville International Airport has already
installed them.
Orlando is expected to install the
new technology soon, according to an
Orlando International Airport spokes-
woman.
UF freshman Henry Legett believes
the new full-body scanners are a justi-
fied precaution.
"I think it's a greater step towards
safety," Legett said.

Political groups conflict over senator's racial comments


* SEN. REID COMMENTED
ON OBAMA IN HIS BOOK.

By ASHLEY LARA MOSES
Alligator Contributing Writer

Local experts have expressed
conflicting opinions regarding
comments Senate Majority Lead-
er Harry Reid, D-Nev., made in
"Game Change," a book about
the 2008 presidential election re-
leased Jan. 11.


During the election, Reid said
President Obama "could become
the country's first black president
because he was 'light-skinned'
and had 'no Negro dialect, unless
he wanted to have one,'" accord-
ing to a New York Times article.
In a statement, Obama said he
had forgiven Reid, but Reid's
comments led some Republicans
to advocate for his resignation.
Bryan Griffin, executive direc-
tor of the Florida Federation of
College Republicans, supports


the idea of Reid's resignation.
Griffin said he was surprised
Democrats didn't react more
strongly to the statements. He
said he thinks the
National reaction would
NeWS have been differ-
ent if a Republican
had made the same comments.
"The Democrats live on a dou-
ble-standard," Griffin said.
Other Gainesville locals ex-
pressed different points of view.
Ben Cavataro, president of the


Florida College Democrats, dis-
agreed and said Reid is not rac-
ist.
Cavataro said Reid's support
from the Congressional Black
Caucus and Obama is more im-
portant than the comments.
Faye V. Harrison, professor
of African-American studies and
anthropology, agrees Reid should
not resign.
"President Obama does not
want him to resign," Harrison
said. "He's part of an alliance -


a team that is important at this
time."
Shannon McNeal, president of
UF's Black Student Union, said
she would like to see Obama and
other officials use the comments
as an opportunity to hold an open
discussion about race.
She said racial stereotypes still
exist.
"For my entire life, I've gotten
comments like, 'You're so articu-
late for a young African-Ameri-
can girl,'" McNeal said.

Injuries cause UF to


rework practices


viar Iripp / Aligaior stanr
UF coach Billy Donovan made adjustments to his team's practices due to lack of depth caused by inju-
ries. Instead of running 5-on-5 scrimmages, the Gators can only play 4-on-4.


* GATORS CAN'T RUN FULL-
TEAM SCRIMMAGES.

By ADAM BERRY
Alligator Staff Writer
aberry@allgator org

Billy Donovan has mixed up
his team's practice routine quite a
bit in the last week.
Although he made one par-
ticular change to fix a season-long
flaw, most of the adjustments
have come out of necessity.
With Florida battling injuries
and illnesses, Donovan was lucky
if he could get eight players on the
practice court last week.
"When you're down a player
or two, sometimes we really don't
have enough," Donovan said.
"Sometimes we get caught doing
three-on-three stuff. Sometimes
we do four-on-four.
"We just try to deal with,
coaching-wise, the hand that
we're dealt."
The lack of able-bodied play-
ers in practice hasn't made game
planning any easier for Donovan,
his staff or his team.
With Adam Allen likely out for
the season after suffering another
left knee injury and Kenny Kadji


out indefinitely with a herniated
disc, any other injuries to key
players have proven more costly
this season than they would have
in the past.
So when senior forward Dan
Werner came down with the flu
last week, it affected more than
just UF's starting lineup Satur-
day.
Junior forward Chandler Par-
sons, who started the game in
Werner's spot, was forced to prac-
tice at power forward even though
he plays almost exclusively on the
perimeter.
"The difficulty in doing that
is that Chandler in games is not
playing at the power forward
spot," Donovan said. "Sometimes
in practice, we're getting caught
playing guys in positions they're
not even playing in games."
With fewer available players,
the Gators' reserves have had to
take on increased roles in practice.
Walk-on guard Kyle McClanahan
was asked to mimic LSU guard Bo
Spencer in practice last week, and
sophomore guard Ray Shipman
had to impersonate LSU forward
Tasmin Mitchell.

Butler leads tight-knit staff


By EUGENIO TORRENS
Alligator Writer
etorrens@alligator org

Amanda Butler referred to the UF wom-
en's basketball program as a family.
It's not hard to see why given the fact
that Butler has worked with all of her as-
sistants at stops prior to Gainesville.
"We are together all the time," Butler
said of her coaching staff. "We take care
of each other, disagree like family, and at
the end of the day, we all have a common
goal and a common purpose. It's a group
of people that I'm very privileged to work
with."
When Butler returned to her alma mat-
er to fill the head coaching position, she
brought members from her coaching staff
at UNC Charlotte that guided the school to
a share of the 2006 Atlantic 10 Conference
regular-season championship.


Coaches Brenda Mock Kirkpatrick, Da-
vid Lowery and Butler's assistant Janna
Magette all made the trip to Gainesville.
But the young staff led by the young-
est coach in the Southeastern Conference
needed some experience.
Butler brought in Su-
sie Gardner, whom But-
ler had been an assistant
under at Austin Peay, to
round out her staff.
In her time there as a
budding assistant coach,
Butler noticed Gardner's
Butler attention to detail and
organization. The two built a trust factor in-
herent with success an Ohio Valley Con-
ference Tournament title in 2001 that
made Gardner an easy choice to complete
Butler's staff.

Macklin controls team's fate


At the beginning of the season, I
would have pegged "He Ain't
Worth Missing" by Toby Keith
as the song for the 2009-10 Florida bas-
ketball team, a tune freshman guard
Kenny Boynton surely sang to the squad
upon his arrival in Gainesville to ease
the players' pain over Nick Calathes' de-
parture for an exotic mistress (Greece).
After watching UF dismantle LSU 72-
58 on Saturday for its first Southeastern
Conference win, I've got a new, equally
annoying song that fits the bill.
If the Gators can make it through
conference play and earn an NCAA
Tournament berth, it'll be because cen-
ter Vernon Macklin keeps up the level of


-play he set against
the Tigers this
weekend.
For this reason,
I submit English
Mike McCall R&B singer Mark
Morrison's oddly
McCallin' It catchy 1996 hit
Like I See It
mmccall@alligator org "Return of the
Mack."
Outside of the
title, most of the song is totally irrel-
evant to Macklin except for the lines "So
I'm back up in the game, running things
to keep my swing, letting all the people
know, that I'm back to run the show."

UF's coaches have past experience with each other

WHOOPS, from page 17


Gardner honed her SEC knowledge at Ar-
kansas from 2003-2007 and brought that to a
youthful coaching staff.
The reversal of roles between Butler and
Gardner has helped Butler as a head coach,
working for her previous boss.
"It certainly gives me a greater apprecia-
tion, when we're having debates about how
we want to do things, where she's coming
from because I feel like I have insight into how
she thinks," Butler said.
The history and comfortability between But-
ler and her aides got them on the same coach-
ing page, which translated to the players.
"Definitely the familiarity with one another
helps," Butler said. "It helps in terms of com-
munication and just being
effective and efficient."
In conference play, when
Women's 'there's a quick turnaround
Women'S between games, the ex-
Basketball change of communication is
invaluable.
"I think they're definitely comfortable with
each other," sophomore guard Jordan Jones
said. "You see it with the way they pick on
each other. They expect certain things out of
each other. They know their roles and they
play them well."
Whether it's Butler, as the enforcer barking
out directions, or Gardener patting a player on
the back on one of her good days, the staff's
familiarity is something that has trickled down
to the players and bred success.
"My challenge was to put together the best
staff that I possibly could, to not just compete
in the SEC, but to win championships in the
SEC," Butler said. "I chose them to be on staff
because they were exceptional: exceptional re-
cruiters, great basketball minds and above all
things, exceptionally loyal and hard workers."


Smaller squad leads

to tiring workouts

HOOPS, from page 17

man wasn't exactly the ideal candidate to mimic
the 6-foot-7, 245-pound Mitchell, who scored 17
points and grabbed nine rebounds against UF on
Saturday.
"Not to take nothing away from them, but
they're nowhere near those type of guys," sopho-
more point guard Erving Walker said. "Ray is
good, but he's not Tasmin Mitchell he's a guard
trying to be a forward."
Freshman guard Kenny Boynton said the big-
gest difference for the players has been the switch
from five-on-five to four-on-four scrimmages, a
change that has made practices a little more tir-
ing for those capable of taking the floor.
Possibly the most important change made in
practices, though, was Donovan's decision to
break up Friday's practice with a short film ses-
sion in between drills and scrimmages.
The move simulated the break the team would
have at halftime, after which UF has come out
slow for most of the season.
The move paid off Saturday, as the Gators
started off the second half with a 23-6 run that
put the game all but out of reach with 12:53 re-
maining.
"I'm gonna try to keep doing that," Donovan
said. "I'm not gonna say we'll do it every day,
but it's something we'll try to continue."
At least a few of Donovan's players hope to
see it become a more common occurrence, espe-
cially after seeing how effective it proved to be.
"I don't have a problem doing it," Parsons
said. "We're 1-0 doing it, so why not?"


MCCALL, from page 17

The Mack held things down
against LSU with 14 points -
more than he scored in his first
two SEC games combined. He
tied a season-high with eight re-
bounds, but most importantly, he
played 28 minutes and collected
zero fouls.
In the previous two games,
Macklin was on the court for just
33 total minutes and racked up
nine fouls.


The Gators already have a
depth problem, and they can't af-
ford to have their biggest threat in
the paint dropping out of games
early for picking up weak fouls.
Macklin was physical against
the Tigers, but he did it in a smart-
er way.
He did a better job of getting
in position, which led to more re-
bounds, less fouls and more room
to be aggressive on the offensive
end.
"We've had him in foul trouble


the first two games, and when we
have him down there, he's a load,"
forward Chandler Parsons said.
"When we get him the ball in the
post, he's really hard to guard. We
definitely need him on the court."
Parsons also called Macklin
"one of the most unselfish big
guys I've ever played with in my
life." For that reason, he may nev-
er go off for 25 points in a game,
but the Gators don't need him to.
Macklin just has to stay on the
court, make a few of his silky-


smooth hook shots and play de-
fense.
"He's a big, strong presence for
us," guard Erving Walker said.
"He can battle with all those big
guys when he's able to play ag-
gressive and not get fouls. I think
he's as good as (Kentucky forward
DeMarcus) Cousins and all those
guys, so we need to keep him on
the floor. That makes everyone's
job easier because we can be more
aggressive on the press knowing
he's back there."


Macklin has a ripple effect just
by staying out of foul trouble, and
the immediate future looks good
for a few confidence-boosters.
He'll be the tallest player on
the court against the Gators' next
two opponents, Arkansas and
South Carolina, who are the SEC's
worst teams in terms of rebound-
ing margin.
If he relapses into his freely
fouling ways against those teams,
I might have to change that song
suggestion to "Thunder Road."

Former senator talks health care 0 DASCHLE STRESSED THE IMPORTANCE OF REFORM. ByCJ PRUNER Alligator Writer For former Sen. Tom Daschle, who served as majority leader and is an expert on health care policy, the number one serves as a reminder of how far the United States has to go in its quest to reform the health care system. "We're the No. 1 country in terms of (health care) costs and 37th in outcome," Daschle said in a speech Tuesday evening in Pugh Hall. "We need to rise to the challenge." Daschle spoke to a crowd of 250 and outlined the issues of the health care debate. He discussed topics including the extent of the government's role in health care reform and the costs to ~CY~I!x WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 20, 2010 associated with reform. Daschle labeled the differing viewpoints in the health care debate as the "noise of democracy" and said both sides share blame in the failure to achieve a true bipartisan approach to health reform.

Tom Daschle former U.S. senator Although health care legislation, which passed through the House and Senate, appears to be on the verge of becoming law, Daschle was quick to point out there is still much work to be done.

SN ki ii I ii Ws If STUDENT GOVERNMENT Students get Reitz fee vote By ELIZABETH BEHRMAN Alligator Writer Senators discussed giving a voice to UF students on a potential Reitz Union fee and at Tuesday night's Senate meeting. The Student Senate unanimously passed a bill that will put a question about the Reitz Union expansion fee on the Student Government spring election ballot. The proposed question has two parts. It asks students whether a fee should be implemented, and, if so, whether it should cover expansion and repairs. Senators amended the bill to include more information about how the fee will be used. Unite Party Sen. Alex Masi, who represents the Rawlings area, presented the amendment to the original bill. He said rephrasing the question makes it clear for students what the fee will be going toward. "The hands-down goal of this is to help students understand what's going on," Masi said. The new version of the question tells voters the Reitz Union is more than 40 years old, needs an estimated $40 million in repairs and was originally built for only 19,000 students. Progress Party Sen. Matt Vernon, who represents graduate students, said the background information is useful for voters, and the referendum question requires two different parts. Orange and Blue Part Sen. Jon Ossip, who repreCharles sents the Murphree Common Area, said the information about the Reitz Union should be supplemented by information about the additional financial burden the fee will place on graduate students and students at satellite campuses.

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 20, 2010 U ALLIGATOR, 3 NATIONAL Student leaders weigh in on Obama's first year By MATT HARRINGER Alligator Contributing Writer Today marks President Obama's first year in office, and UF political groups have differing views on how his term is going. Bryan Griffin, UF College Republicans executive director, said the president's stimulus was poorly designed. Florida College Democrats President Ben Cavataro disagrees. "The administration's quick action averted a deeper recession," Cavataro said. In the last year, Obama signed a $787 billion stimulus bill, managed two wars, presided over a health care brawl, avoided a Christmas terrorist attack and responded to one of the worst natural disasters in the Western Hemisphere. And all the action has cost him in the polls. A year ago, Obama saw an approval rating of more than 60 percent on Real Clear Politics' national polling average. Today, he has a rating lower than 50 percent. The St. Petersburg Times' Obameter, which tracks the president's campaign promises, says Obama has kept 91 of those promises, compromised on 33 and failed on 14. Many of those 91 fulfilled promises deal with the stimulus bill passed in February. In addition to giving states funding to fill their budget gaps, the stimulus bill also included funding for high-speed rail, green-energy job training and extended unemployment insurance. Obama also kept his promise to refocus on Afghanistan when he issued an order in February to send two additional brigades to the country. At the time of Obama's inauguration, there were about 34,000 American troops in Afghanistan. Today there are more than double that number, according to the Department of Defense. Furthering his deployment of troops, Obama announced inDecember he would be sending an additional 30,000 soldiers to bring the total to about 100,000 troops. Cavataro and Griffin agreed the president was doing a good job in Afghanistan, but Griffin added he hoped the president would fulfill all of the war's requirements. One major promise made during the campaign was not to raise taxes on families makObama ing less than $250,000. Obama compromised on this promise when he signed an excise cigarette tax increase to help pay for the State Children's Health Insurance Program. Cavataro said this is a stretch to call it a tax on the middle class. He said he believes if health care reform passes, the middle class will actually save money. Griffin disagreed, saying the middle class and the rich both need tax cuts. "They're forgetting about the people who support the entitlement programs," Griffin said. "People making over $250,000 need tax cuts as well." Of the 14 campaign promises Obama has broken, according to the St. Petersburg Times, one of them was broken with the flick of a pen early in his presidency. Obama said he would post non-emergency bills on the White House Web site for five days of public comment before signing them, but he broke this promise with his first piece of legislation. The Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act was signed by the president just two days after being passed by Congress and was never posted on the White House Web site as Obama promised. Recently, Republicans have criticized Obama for breaking his promise to televise health care negotiations on C-SPAN. Two deals brokered with the pharmaceutical industry and hospitals were behind closed doors, and the House-Senate conference to merge health care bills won't be open to the public either. Griffin blamed Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi for these broken promises. "A lot of those had to do with the way Pelosi operates," Griffin said. "I think Obama caved in to Pelosi and [Senate Majority Leader Harry] Reid." Cavataro said the bill that wasn't posted on the Web site wasn't very controversial and pointed to some of the tough rules on lobbyist the White House has enacted to make government more ethical. While it's been a busy 365 days for the 44th U.S. president, Obama still has many promises to keep during the next three years. Health care legislation is stalled in Congress, and the president has yet to repeal the army's "Don't Ask Don't Tell" policy or pass a major energy bill. Ben Cavataro Bryan Griffin Pres.

4, ALLIGATOR U WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 20, 2010 ON CAMPUS Grant aims to keep civil rights movement alive By ERICA JOHNSON Alligator Writer As memories of the civil rights movement begin to blur and tales of integration fade with time, the Samuel Proctor Oral History Program is striving to bring these stories back into focus. The program received a three-year, $150,000 grant to collect and share stories of local black residents who grew up during the civil rights movement. The grant was awarded by the UF Office of the Provost, and the project was developed after conversations between Paul Ortiz, the program's director, and UF President Bernie Machen, according to a press release. Ortiz believes that as the number of living black people who remember integration begins to dwindle, it is essential to collect their stories before they are lost forever, leaving only the history offered in textbooks. "History really matters to people as they get older, and it isn't about facts and dates; it's about feelings," Ortiz said. He said the project focuses on oral histories of black people who came of age around the time of Brown vs. the Board of Education in 1954. "We want to see what the transition was like in the everyday lives of blacks in Gainesville and across the county," Ortiz said. He said the project's goal is to make the information collected in the interviews accessible to the public in the form of podcasts, Web sites and a book. The podcasts can be accessed all over the world on iTunes, with one listener in Beijing, China, Ortiz said. Transcripts from the interviews are on the UF Digital Library Center Web site and are already being used by students to write term papers and reports, Ortiz said. UF students play a huge role in the interview process. Of the 40 interviews already conducted, twothirds of themwere done by UF undergraduate students, Ortiz said. "They often say things to me like, 'This Ortiz interview changed my life,"' he said. "They say, 'I learned more about history in that 30-minute interview than I have in all the textbooks I've read."' Jason Horton, a sociology senior, was nervous when he sat down to conduct his first interview. He spoke with the first black graduate of the UF College of Nursing. Horton said his two-hour conversation with Evelyn Mickle helped him develop a new appreciation for the challenges faced by the pioneers of integration. "Her strength and perseverance showed me how my own struggles are so small," he said. Cold threatens animals I WEATHER SHOCK CAN CAUSE ANIMALS TO FREEZE TO DEATH. By TAYLOR DIXON and ROBERT IMIFELD Alligator Contributing Writers This month's cold snap left its mark on reptiles and bats all across Florida and worried animal experts. Cindi Marks, co-founder and executive director of the Florida Bat Conservancy, said some species of bats abundant in Florida may not be able to withstand the effects of the winter cold. Jonathan Miot, assistant professor at the Santa Fe College Teaching Zoo, said iguanas, like other reptiles, are suffering from cold shock. "Due to the extraordinary cold weather in Florida, the heat these animals are absorbing is not enough to sustain normal metabolism," Miot said. The slowing metabolism rate causes reptiles to freeze. Although it is possible for these animals to rebound from the cold shock, sustained cold could cause them to freeze to death, Miot said. During extreme cold weather, the SFC Teaching Zoo takes its animals indoors or provides supplemental heat sources and bedding. However, animals in the wild aren't so lucky. Bats essentially shut down during torpor, a phase similar to hibernation, beginning with temperatures in the low 50s, Marks said, and waking up from torpor to find food consumes a lot of energy. "There are no insects during the cold weather, so the bats are staying in torpor longer," Marks said. On campus, the Brazilian free-tailed bat is most at risk because it is a species native to more tropical climates and not used to going into torpor for so long. The other types of bats that live in the UF bat house are native to the north. "We really aren't totally sure how it will affect these species," Marks said. Florida bats go into torpor for a couple of weeks at a time, depending on the temperature. The highest low in January was 55, and the forecast Local for the rest of January does News not show the lows rising above 60, according to AccuWeather.com. Including data from December 2009, which did not show lows rising above 51 beginning Dec. 18, it is possible the bats will face almost six consecutive weeks of torpor-causing weather. The bats in the UF bat house are doing fine for now, said Ken Glover, pest management coordinator for UF. "In previous times, I've had some bats that would fall out," he said. He would find them frozen on the ground near the bat house. UF sophomore Colleen Thomas said she wants the warm weather to return soon for her as well as the animals' sake. "If I ever walked by the bat house and saw a frozen bat on the ground, I would scream," she said. Vigil honors Martin Luther King Jr., Haitia By JOEY FLECHAS Alligator Writer The voice of soul singer Sam Cooke filled the air as about 100 people gathered in the Reitz Union Amphitheater Tuesday night. "A Change is Gonna Come" came over the loudspeakers and set the tone for the evening before the commencement of the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Candlelight Vigil. "It was a pretty diverse turnout." Natalia Leal assistant director of UF Multicultural and Diversity Affairs Natalia Leal, assistant director of UF Multicultural and Diversity Affairs, said she was happy to see students from all backgrounds come together for the vigil. "It was a pretty diverse turnout," she said. The Rev. Jim Merritt of Campus Ministry Cooperative said the event, which the cooperative created six years ago, is a wonderful acknowledgment of King's message of service and unity.

The rest of the night featured a performance by the University Gospel Choir, reflections by local children from the Boys and Girls Club and a short video with clips of King. Camille Evelyn, a sophomore English and African studies major, recited a poem calling for more change and a continuation of Dr. King's philosophy of peace. She compared today's state of affairs to putting make-up on a wounded face, and she made no apologies for speaking frankly about the world's continuing struggles with racism, poverty and violence. "I didn't come here to make you comfortable," Evelyn said. "I came here to tell you the truth." Before a closing song, students from Gator United for Haiti appealed to the crowd for continued support in the relief effort. Club Creole President Altina Fenelon said it was people's responsibility to assist one another in this time. "This is not Haitian issue," Fenelon said. "It's a human issue."

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 20, 2010 U ALLIGATOR, 5 STUDENT LIFE Student groups rally to help Haiti By ELIZABETH BEHRMAN Alligator Writer In the aftershocks of last week's earthquake in Haiti, UF students have rallied together to raise funds and supplies to send to the victims of the disaster. Gators United for Haiti, a student group originally founded in 2008 but reorganized following the disaster, has united with UF administrators to raise $50,000 to send to the small, impoverished Caribbean country. So far, the umbrella organization, which includes such groups as Club Creole, Student Government, Hope for Haiti and VISA, has raised about $4,000. "People started to see the effects and then became more willing to contribute." Angela Pierre public relations chairwoman for Club Creole Suzanne McHenry is no feather in the wind.

Jennifer Oxilien, public relations chairwoman for Hope for Haiti, said the organization started collecting money, clothing and relief supplies last Tuesday. The group will continue collecting donations throughout the week, she said. Angela Pierre, public relations chairwoman for Club Creole, said the club has raised more than $600 since last Wednesday in addition to collecting food and clothes in the drop zones around campus. Pierre said as time goes on, more students are willing to make donations because they are more aware of the situation in the affected areas of Haiti. "People started to see the effects and then became more willing to contribute," she said. Beth Waltrip, director for campus programs for the Reitz Union, said Gators United for Haiti leaders have been unable to decide where to send the donations. However, she added Gators United for Haiti is looking to other student organizations that want to be involved in the relief effort to help decide where the relief packages and funds will be sent. Sky Georges, the president of Gators United for Haiti, said it has been great to see the UF community assembling together for one cause. "I just thank everybody for finding it in their hearts to serve the Haitian community," he said.

6, ALLIGATOR U WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 20, 2010 Editorial Blonde Moment 'Gossip Girl' star too self-involved It's been one week since the earthquake hit Haiti, and people across the campus, country and world are joining together to provide relief for those affected. The Editorial Board is glad to see that celebrities are joining in the effort too. Instead of buying Patron for their entourages or cars for their mamas, they're putting the ridiculous sums of money they receive for doing little to no work to good use. We weren't surprised to hear Brangelina donated $1 million to Doctors without Borders. But we were quite pleased when we read George Clooney and Wyclef Jean have stepped up to host Friday's "Hope for Haiti Now" telethon. Not to mention the all-star list of musicians who have signed on to perform like Justin Timberlake, Rihanna and Bruce Springsteen (just to name a few). However, some celebs have more important issues on their minds -namely Taylor Momsen (you know, the really skinny blonde girl who wears too much eye makeup and plays Jenny Humphrey on the CW's "Gossip Girl"). During an interview with OK! Magazine, the reporter asked her about her thoughts on the disaster and she replied "Um, right now I'm trying to just finish my record and getting through the last season of 'Gossip Girl' for right now. So not so much thinking about that." Now, if it were any other issue, the Editorial board would defend "Gossip Girl" to its death (we do make the whole office suffer through watching it every Monday), but not this time. Momsen needs to get her act together and realize there are more important things than her record, which will most likely result in complete failure anyway. If you're going to make us suffer through your wannabe rock star performance, at least do it for a good cause. Winter Warning With winter setting in and word of the FDA cracking down on barely visible tanning bed warnings, the Editorial Board is urging students to forgo sun-kissed bronze in favor of pasty white -or even Gatorsthemed fake orange. We know Floridians use the term "winter" lightly, and we don't expect you to hibernate along with the sun, but every year, it becomes more evident that tanning is a careless practice. According to an Associated Press article, the FDA finally noticed that the warnings on tanning beds are less than menacing and is beginning to explore stricter regulation of tanning studios. We're all for the crackdown -we've Googled "melanoma," and it's not pretty. The World Health Organization found that the risk of skin cancer jumps by about 5 percent when people use tanning beds in their teens and 20s. Sure, there's a chance the data is skewed or it's all a big conspiracy, but do you really want to take the risk? We don't. OK, we know most of you are already rolling your eyes, and that's fine. But we'll be rolling ours when you whine about the scar from the mole you had removed from your cheek. We don't expect you to start bathing in sunblock and wearing veils when you leave the apartment. We just ask you to think about which is more attractive: Slightly pale legs or ones with a big nasty scar from where doctors removed cancerous flesh? We're thinking the former. Because looking like a vintage Coach bag by the time you're 40 is just not cute. 0 the independent florida alligator Chelsea Keenan EDITOR Emily Fuggetta J Hunter Sizemore MANAGING EDITORS The Alligator encourages comments from readers Letters to the editor should not exceed 150 words (about one letter-sized page) They must be typed, double-spaced and must include the author's name, classification and phone number Names will be withheld if the writer shows just cause We reserve the right to edit for length, grammar, style and libel Send letters to ietters@aiiigatororg, bring them to 1105W University Ae or send them to PO Box 14257, Gainesvi rle, FL 32604-2257Columns of about 450 words about original topics and editorial cartoons are also welcome Questions?

Although he found work -and, consequently, coverage for himself -in April, the rest of the family can't join until March 2010. So, for the only year my mother and I have ever been without insurance, we have tiptoed through our lives, avoiding what health risks we could. My mother rationed out her thyroid medication at the expense of her memory and happy temperament. I stockpiled over-the-counter pain relievers and cough suppressants in case I had to ride out an influenza storm. It never came. Instead, a week before fall classes started, I felt stabbing pains in my abdomen, which a walk-in clinic doctor diagnosed as either appendicitis or pain from a cyst. Against my will and money-driven mentality, I went to the ER for a night and left with a bill for $18,000 in my name. That didn't include surgery. The doctors wouldn't perform any but the most imperative (lifesaving) operations on someone without insurance. Perhaps you can see how walking around campus with a 10-centimeter cyst would tune me into the rumblings of required health insurance for UF students. While shocking to students still on their parents' plans or with insurance through work, a chunk of the Student Body goes without insurance each year. In fact, estimates by the Student Health Care Center and UF surveys indicate the number of uninsured students is somewhere between 10,000 and 15,000. Why would all of these people take the risk of not buying health insurance, especially when the university provides a discounted policy? Much of this 20 to 30 percent of the Student Body is comprised of stereotypical starving students. We just can't afford it. With phrases like "7 percent annual increase in college costs" flying around, I checked the math. Accounting for my normal spending, a purchase of the comprehensive Aetna plan offered through the school would result in a 20 to 25 percent increase in costs. Of course, this calculation applies Cynthia Despres to my own situation. Speaking Out Faced with a spike in costs, students on an already tight budget would have to choose to leave the college, take out a (second) loan or get a (second) job. These options stink. Beyond the payment problem, the argument for mandating health insurance is on shaky ground to begin with: Why would medical bills cause students to drop out of college? Yes, collectors ask for bills to be paid, and the sums inflate to massive amounts when not negated by insurance. However, unlike with other payments, the collectors don't demand the bills be paid immediately. With the burden of time lifted, a medical bill acts almost like a student loan: Most collectors are satisfied if the patient makes plans to pay the debt. Even if everyone can scrounge up money to pay for insurance, I have problems with the proposal. Although preexisting conditions don't affect all Gators, they cause kinks in the argument for mandated insurance. As I know from experience, obtaining an insurance plan covering known conditions can prove exhausting. My mother called around to sign me up for a plan immediately after my hospital visit. She was prepared to spend money we didn't have to guarantee an operation, but while the insurance companies would readily take the cash, they wouldn't provide funds for surgery. If forced into health insurance, people with pre-existing conditions -which can range from asthma and high blood pressure to cancer and heart disease -maybe denied coverage for their worst medical problems. In spite of the unanswered questions, kudos goes to Student Body President Jordan Johnson for understanding this predicament and the widespread impact it could have on the Student Body. Everyone should fight for what's right for this university. Required health insurance could make our school more exclusive on a financial basis rather than on an academic one, and that's not what the Gator Nation stands for.

Oil I A33b e frmCmea N*Prvd I ~I omi 1 W$ Oi WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 20, 2010 U ALLIGATOR, 7 Letters to the Editor Ignoring local church is the only solution In response to Paul Murty's column: Thank you for your intelligent column on Friday about ignoring the Dove World Outreach Center members when they preach intolerantly on campus. I agree with you completely; ignoring them is the only way to be rid of them. I am not a Christian, but I know the teachings of Jesus include much about tolerance. Besides, the word "Christian" is derived from Christ. Thus, being Christ-like certainly means exhibiting tolerance and inclusion. Perhaps the Dove World Outreach Center should look closely at the life of the founder of their religion. For that matter, perhaps we all should do the same with our own beliefs. Nora F. Zaki Response to sex column is spot-on Joe Dellosa, thank you for writing your column, "Infidelity should not be normalized," in Tuesday's Alligator. I agree with you wholeheartedly. I have always thought very strongly that cheating on someone is the worst thing a person can do to another. The repercussions are long-lasting. The cheated-on may have trust issues, and the cheater may feel that they can cheat repeatedly, not understanding what they really are doing. You are spot-on when you say that it is about respect, and to me, there is no justification, ever, for disrespecting another person (especially someone you care about) in this manner. Amanda Eilers UF Staff 0 0 0 Guest column France is misrepresented as having 'clean'nuclear programs t is perhaps no accident that the nuclear power industry chose a French word, "reaissance," to promote its alleged comeback. Attached to this misapplied moniker are a series of fallacious suggestions that nuclear energy is "clean," "safe" and even "renewable." And, in keeping with its French flavor, a key argument in the industry's propaganda arsenal is that the U.S. should follow the "successful" example of the French nuclear program. France serves as a convenient sound bite for politicians and others advocating a nuclear revival (hypocritically evoked by many of the same people who insisted on "Freedom Fries" at the start of the Iraq War). A failure to challenge this facile falsehood has cemented the myth of a French nuclear utopia in the minds of the public. It masks a very different reality. France gets 80 percent of its electricity from nuclear power. However, this alone does not constitute a success. Rather, it results in the production of an enormous amount of radioactive waste that, as is the case for all other nuclear countries, has nowhere to go. France has no operating geological repository for nuclear waste. To date, therefore, it has resorted to reprocessing, a highly contaminating chemical process that separates uranium and plutonium while releasing large quantities of liquid and aerial radioactivity into the environment. Nuclear energy has not gained France energy independence. France imports all uranium used in its 58 reactors -having abandoned the last of its 210 uranium mines in 2001. These latter also produced a large waste Linda Gunter stream, including tailSpeaking Out ings (radioactive rocks and soils) that have been used to pave children's playgrounds and public parking lots. Today, French uranium is imported largely from Niger where Areva -which, despite its corporate appearance, is 90 percent government-owned -has mined for 40 years. Its legacy in one of the poorest countries on the planet is one of depleted and contaminated water, wide dispersal of radioactive dust and discarded radioactive metals that have been sold in local markets and used in homes. Nor can nuclear meet all French electricity needs. During heat waves and droughts, the French havebeen forced to power down or close more than a third of their nuclear plants, which rely on water sources such as rivers and lakes for cooling. None of this has deterred Areva or EDF from driving aggressively into new nuclear markets, especially the U.S., where Aerva is promoting its huge Evolutionary Power Reactor (EPR), with seven targeted at six U.S. sites. Since new reactors are too expensive to build unless federally funded, EPRs in the U.S. could result in American tax dollars flowing to the French government. However, French nuclear success overseas has proved as elusive as it is at home. All but two of the U.S. EPRs are now on the back burner or canceled altogether. Linda Gunter is co-founder of Beyond Nuclear and specializes in researching the French nuclear sector.

8, ALLIGATOR U WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 20, 2010 ON CAMPUS Students to tear down wall of hate Jamison Duncan, a history and education major, paints an insult he found offensive on a cinder block for the Writing on the Wall Project Tuesday afternoon. By NICOLE LYNN GREINER Alligator Contributing Writer Bricks with statements including "You aren't smart enough to do that" and "Homos are sinners" were stacked on the Reitz Union North Lawn Tuesday. Students decorated the bricks as part of the Writing on the Wall Project. Through the project, students paint the bricks with hurtful or offensive statements and will build a wall using the bricks Monday. On Jan. 29, students will gather in the Plaza of the Americas to tear down the wall. "We want people to think before they say that hurtful statement," said Cary Warsetsky, a chemical engineering junior and the administrative director for the Writing on the Wall Project. "If we can make someone a little bit happier, then I think we've done a good job." Warsetsky said students can write whatever they want on the bricks unless it is a personal attack that includes someone's name. UF freshman Shalonda Lewis said the project is interesting because it shows the perspectives of others. "To me or you, 'Jew,' is not an insult, but to other people it could be," Lewis said. Lewis wrote "WhoRE" on her brick. "I think we tend to prejudge others and go off what they have on rather than who they are," she said. The project will continue on the Plaza of the Americas today and Thursday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Students can also paint bricks at the Reitz Union North Lawn on Friday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Law professor: airport body scanners legal By ALLYSON FOX Alligator Contributing Writer Privacy is one thing travelers may soon have to do without. According to a recent USA Today/ Gallup poll following the attempted Christmas Day bombing of Northwest Flight 253, 78 percent of Americans support the use of new airport scanners that create a more revealing image of the subject than a simple X-ray. John Stinneford, assistant professor of law at the UF Levin College of Law, said the new body scanners do not violate the Fourth Amendment's unreasonable search and seizure clause. "What is reasonable depends on what we expect," Stinneford said. If the government shows reason for conducting the full-body scans, travelers won't be able to refuse, said Juan F. Perea, a law professor at the UF Levin College of Law. "It's just something we need to get used to," he said. Sari Koshetz, Transportation Security Administration spokesperson, said the new scanner's images are anonymous, adding that passengers' faces are blurred. "What is reasonable depends on what we expect." John Stinneford assistant professor of law at the UF Levin College of Law Although Orlando International Airport and Gainesville Regional Airport do not use the new scanners, Jacksonville International Airport has already installed them. Orlando is expected to install the new technology soon, according to an Orlando International Airport spokeswoman. UF freshman Henry Legett believes the new full-body scanners are a justified precaution. "I think it's a greater step towards safety," Legett said. AvadaM from Commerdai o PovWos Pierre-Louis arrested for domestic battery by strangulation He turned himself in to local authorities Tuesday morning By MIKE MCALL Alligator Staff Writer Former Florida cornerback Wondy Pierre-Louis turned himself in to Gainesville authorities early Tuesday morning and was arrested on charges of domestic battery by strangulation, unarmed burglary, battery, kidnapping and obstructing justice by tampering. Pierre-Louis, who turned himself in at 2:16 a.m. according to Alachua County Jail records, was sought by police after being accused of pinning a girlfriend against a countertop and choking her on Sunday morning, when police say he entered her home and found her with another person, who fled the scene. During his court appearLocal ance, the victim spoke in News support of Pierre-Louis, saying Pierre-Louis had a key to her apartment, according to an article by the Gainesville Sun. The woman said he "wasn't a danger," the article said. His bond was reduced from $185,000 to $40,000, the article stated. Pierre-Louis had just completed his senior season with the football team and was working toward a degree in sociology. The turmoil comes soon after he discovered that his family's home in Haiti was destroyed during last week's earthquake. Katherine Bein contributed to this article.

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 20, 2010 0 ALLIGATOR, 9 LOCAL Mayor to discuss city's future in annual address By MELINDA CARSTENSEN Alligator Contributing Writer Mayor Pegeen Hanrahan will discuss Gainesville's 2009 accomplishments and its short-term plans for the future in the 2010 State of the City address today. The speech, which is open to the public, will begin at 8 a.m. at the Hippodrome State Theatre, 25 SE Second Place. Bob Woods, city of Gainesville spokesman, said Hanrahan began the State of the City address six years ago, during her first term. "The mayor will highlight some of this year's successes and talk about moving toward the future and the kind of Gainesville we all want to live in," Woods said. Hanrahan is expected to discuss topics including environmental conservation, neighborhood improvement and budget Hanrahan issues. "This address is an unfettered opportunity for the mayor to inform the public on the city commission's perspective," Woods said. Those who cannot attend can watch the address on television on Community12, which is on Cox Cable channel 12. A print document of the address will also be available on the city's Web site. Eventually, a video of the address will stream on the city's Web site at cityofgainesville.org, Woods said. "One of the great things about Gainesville is that we have a civically engaged community," Woods said. "That's why we enjoy the standard of living that we do." Political groups conflict over senator's racial comments 0 SEN. REID COMMENTED ON OBAMA IN HIS BOOK. By ASHLEY LARA MOSES Alligator Contributing Writer Local experts have expressed conflicting opinions regarding comments Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., made in "Game Change," a book about the 2008 presidential election released Jan. 11. During the election, Reid said President Obama "could become the country's first black president because he was 'light-skinned' and had 'no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one,"' according to a New York Times article. In a statement, Obama said he had forgiven Reid, but Reid's comments led some Republicans to advocate for his resignation. Bryan Griffin, executive director of the Florida Federation of College Republicans, supports the idea of Reid's resignation. Griffin said he was surprised Democrats didn't react more strongly to the statements. He said he thinks the National reaction would NewS have been different if a Republican had made the same comments. "The Democrats live on a double-standard," Griffin said. Other Gainesville locals expressed different points of view. Ben Cavataro, president of the Florida College Democrats, disagreed and said Reid is not racist. Cavataro said Reid's support from the Congressional Black Caucus and Obama is more important than the comments. Faye V. Harrison, professor of African-American studies and anthropology, agrees Reid should not resign. "President Obama does not want him to resign," Harrison said. "He's part of an alliance a team that is important at this time." Shannon McNeal, president of UF's Black Student Union, said she would like to see Obama and other officials use the comments as an opportunity to hold an open discussion about race. She said racial stereotypes still exist. "For my entire life, I've gotten comments like, 'You're so articulate for a young African-American girl,"' McNeal said.

10, ALLIGATOR U WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 20, 2010 ON CAMPUS Employers remain optimistic despite lower turnout By LYN KRAMER Alligator Contributing Writer The recession is making an impression on this year's Spring Career Showcase. Fewer companies and students attended the Spring Career Showcase Tuesday at the O'Connell Center than last year. The first day of the showcase, which gives students the chance to interview for jobs and internships, usually attracts about 2,300 to 3,000 students, said Ja'Net Glover, the Career Resource Center assistant director for career events. About 2,000 students showed up Tuesday, Glover said. Glover said about 200 companies are expected to attend the two-day showcase, which is about 20 percent fewer than the usual turnout. However, Glover said companies are still hiring. Students interviewed for internships and full-time jobs with accounting, communications, health care, human services and retail companies, according to the showcase Web site. Interviews for computer science, engineering and construction jobs will take place today, viewed Tuesday. according to the site.

I GOP sen. canceled to Senators honor Haiti victims SENATE, from page 1 "The hands-down goal of this "These students do not use the Reitz Union almost ever," Ossip said. Senators also discussed lending a hand in Haiti. Senate President Ashton Charles, who represents the Unite Party and worked to help organize Gators United for Haiti, which is working to raise money for Haitian relief, said the University Athletic Association announced it will match the group up to $50,000. is to help students understand what's going on." Alex Masi Unite Party Senator Senators voted unanimously to pass a resolution honoring the victims of the tragedy in Haiti last week. A resolution is a piece of legislation that expresses senators' opinion but does not take action. HEALTH, from page 1 70 yards to go," he said. If the bill fails to become law, Daschle said it would take at least a decade before Congress addresses the issue of health reform again. He said the issue is something every American should be concerned about. "I believe American politicians respond better when there's a crisis," he said. "I believe everyone is trying to do the right thing." Bill Frist, a former Republican senator from Tennessee and a former senate majority leader, planned to speak alongside Daschle to offer a conservative perspective "There's a lot for finance and statistics, but there isn't a lot outside basic retailing," Smith said. But representatives from companies who came to the showcase were optimistic. Jaclyn Rosen, a recruiter for Naylor, a media corporation, said students should still apply. "We've had people come up to us in the past with the mindset that we aren't hiring, but that isn't true," Rosen said. She also offered advice for students interested in interviewing. "We mainly look for people with a lot of enthusiasm, so come up to us smiling," she said. Troy Hammond, finance manager at Lockheed Martin, a global security corporation, said the company looks for students with good GPAs. "We want someone who is a representative fit for our company," Hammond said. Students who attend the showcase today from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. should bring their Gator 1 ID cards and several copies of their resumes. travel to Haiti on the health care debate. However, Frist, a heart and lung transplant surgeon, decided to travel to Haiti to help with disaster relief efforts. Instead, Rob Lorei, the news director of WMNF in Tampa, interviewed Daschle, asking questions from both On sides of the political spectrum. CampUS Rafael Yaniz, a political science junior who submitted a question to the former senator, said he was impressed by how Daschle conducted himself throughout the session. Yaniz, who admits that he doesn't line up exactly with Daschle, admired how he treated the subject matter seriously without acting like a pundit.

Sports WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 20, 2010 ALLIGATOR www.alligatorSports.org Injuries cause UF to rework practices Matt Tripp / Alligator Staff UF coach Billy Donovan made adjustments to his team's practices due to lack of depth caused by injuries. Instead of running 5-on-5 scrimmages, the Gators can only play 4-on-4. 0 GATORS CAN'T RUN FULLTEAM SCRIMMAGES. By ADAM BERRY Alligator Staff Writer a be rry@alIlIiga to r org Billy Donovan has mixed up his team's practice routine quite a bit in the last week. Although he made one particular change to fix a season-long flaw, most of the adjustments have come out of necessity. With Florida battling injuries and illnesses, Donovan was lucky if he could get eight players on the practice court last week. "When you're down a player or two, sometimes we really don't have enough," Donovan said. "Sometimes we get caught doing three-on-three stuff. Sometimes we do four-on-four. "We just try to deal with, coaching-wise, the hand that we're dealt." The lack of able-bodied players in practice hasn't made game planning any easier for Donovan, his staff or his team. With Adam Allen likely out for the season after suffering another left knee injury and Kenny Kadji out indefinitely with a herniated disc, any other injuries to key players have proven more costly this season than they would have in the past. So when senior forward Dan Werner came down with the flu last week, it affected more than just UF's starting lineup Saturday. Junior forward Chandler Parsons, who started the game in Werner's spot, was forced to practice at power forward even though he plays almost exclusively on the perimeter. "The difficulty in doing that is that Chandler in games is not playing at the power forward spot," Donovan said. "Sometimes in practice, we're getting caught playing guys in positions they're not even playing in games. With fewer available players, the Gators' reserves have had to take on increased roles in practice. Walk-on guard Kyle McClanahan was asked to mimic LSU guard Bo Spencer in practice last week, and sophomore guard Ray Shipman had to impersonate LSU forward Tasmin Mitchell. The 6-foot-5, 210-pound ShipSEE HOOPS, PAGE 19 Butler leads tight-knit staff By EUGENIO TORRENS Alligator Writer etorrens@a lIigator org Amanda Butler referred to the UF women's basketball program as a family. It's not hard to see why given the fact that Butler has worked with all of her assistants at stops prior to Gainesville. "We are together all the time," Butler said of her coaching staff. "We take care of each other, disagree like family, and at the end of the day, we all have a common goal and a common purpose. It's a group of people that I'm very privileged to work with." When Butler returned to her alma mater to fill the head coaching position, she brought members from her coaching staff at UNC Charlotte that guided the school to a share of the 2006 Atlantic 10 Conference regular-season championship. Coaches Brenda Mock Kirkpatrick, David Lowery and Butler's assistant Janna Magette all made the trip to Gainesville. But the young staff led by the youngest coach in the Southeastern Conference needed some experience. Butler brought in Susie Gardner, whom Butler had been an assistant under at Austin Peay, to round out her staff. In her time there as a budding assistant coach, Butler noticed Gardner's Butler attention to detail and organization. The two built a trust factor inherent with success -an Ohio Valley Conference Tournament title in 2001 -that made Gardner an easy choice to complete Butler's staff.

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 20, 2010 U ALLIGATOR, 19 Copyrighted MateriIl Syndicated Content Available from Commercial News Providers UF's coaches have past experience with each other WHOOPS, from page 17 Gardner honed her SEC knowledge at Arkansas from 2003-2007 and brought that to a youthful coaching staff. The reversal of roles between Butler and Gardner has helped Butler as a head coach, working for her previous boss. "It certainly gives me a greater appreciation, when we're having debates about how we want to do things, where she's coming from because I feel like I have insight into how she thinks," Butler said. The history and comfortabilitybetween Butler and her aides got them on the same coaching page, which translated to the players. "Definitely the familiarity with one another helps," Butler said. "It helps in terms of communication and just being effective and efficient." In conference play, when Women there's a quick turnaround between games, the exBasketball change of communication is invaluable. "I think they're definitely comfortable with each other," sophomore guard Jordan Jones said. "You see it with the way they pick on each other. They expect certain things out of each other. They know their roles and they play them well." aWhether it's Butler, as the enforcer barking out directions, or Gardener patting a player on the back on one of her good days, the staff's familiarity is something that has trickled down to the players and bred success. "My challenge was to put together the best staff that I possibly could, to not just compete in the SEC, but to win championships in the SEC," Butler said. "I chose them to be on staff because they were exceptional: exceptional recruiters, great basketball minds and above all things, exceptionally loyal and hard workers." Smaller squad leads to tiring workouts HOOPS, from page 17 man wasn't exactly the ideal candidate to mimic the 6-foot-7, 245-pound Mitchell, who scored 17 points and grabbed nine rebounds against UF on Saturday. "Not to take nothing away from them, but they're nowhere near those type of guys," sophomore point guard Erving Walker said. "Ray is good, but he's not Tasmin Mitchell -he's a guard trying to be a forward." Freshman guard Kenny Boynton said the biggest difference for the players has been the switch from five-on-five to four-on-four scrimmages, a change that has made practices a little more tiring for those capable of taking the floor. Possibly the most important change made in practices, though, was Donovan's decision to break up Friday's practice with a short film session in between drills and scrimmages. The move simulated the break the team would have at halftime, after which UF has come out slow for most of the season. The move paid off Saturday, as the Gators started off the second half with a 23-6 run that put the game all but out of reach with 12:53 remaining. "I'm gonna try to keep doing that," Donovan said. "I'm not gonna say we'll do it every day, but it's something we'll try to continue." At least a few of Donovan's players hope to see it become a more common occurrence, especially after seeing how effective it proved to be. "I don't have a problem doing it," Parsons said. "We're 1-0 doing it, so why not?" MCCALL, from page 17 The Mack held things down against LSU with 14 points more than he scored in his first two SEC games combined. He tied a season-high with eight rebounds, but most importantly, he played 28 minutes and collected zero fouls. In the previous two games, Macklin was on the court for just 33 total minutes and racked up nine fouls. The Gators already have a depth problem, and they can't afford to have their biggest threat in the paint dropping out of games early for picking up weak fouls. Macklin was physical against the Tigers, but he did it in a smarter way. He did a better job of getting in position, which led to more rebounds, less fouls and more room to be aggressive on the offensive end. "We've had him in foul trouble the first two games, and when we have him down there, he's a load," forward Chandler Parsons said. "When we get him the ball in the post, he's really hard to guard. We definitely need him on the court." Parsons also called Macklin "one of the most unselfish big guys I've ever played with in my life." For that reason, he may never go off for 25 points in a game, but the Gators don't need him to. Macklin just has to stay on the court, make a few of his silkysmooth hook shots and play defense. "He's a big, strong presence for us," guard Erving Walker said. "He can battle with all those big guys when he's able to play aggressive and not get fouls. I think he's as good as (Kentucky forward DeMarcus) Cousins and all those guys, so we need to keep him on the floor. That makes everyone's job easier because we can be more aggressive on the press knowing he's back there." Macklin has a ripple effect just by staying out of foul trouble, and the immediate future looks good for a few confidence-boosters. He'll be the tallest player on the court against the Gators' next two opponents, Arkansas and South Carolina, who are the SEC's worst teams in terms of rebounding margin. If he relapses into his freely fouling ways against those teams, I might have to change that song suggestion to "Thunder Road."
