BREAKING NEWS


Gators defense



player arrested


By MIKE McCALL
Alligator Staff Writer
mmccall@alligator.org

UF defensive tackle Gary Brown
was arrested early Sunday morn-
ing and charged with two counts
of misdemeanor battery after po-
lice said he slapped one female and
scratched another after they asked
him to leave a party.
Brown and a friend, Theodore
Davis, attended a party at The
Crossing at Santa Fe Apartments,
and when Davis was asked to leave,
he grabbed a fire extinguisher and
sprayed its contents on those near
him, according to a police report.
Alachua County sheriff's depu-
ties responded to the incident at 5:27
a.m., and upon arrival, they were
told by two females hosting the par-
ty that the 6-foot-4-inch, 275-pound
Brown slapped and scratched them.
Neither victim required medical


attention.
Brown, 19, and Davis had left the
party by the time officers arrived,
but they were arrested at a traffic
stop and booked into the Alachua
County Jail shortly before 8 a.m.
A five-star recruit from Greens-
boro West Gads-
den High School,
Brown did not see
any game action
as a freshman this
past season, and
his recent arrest
doesn't bode well
Brown for future playing
time.
The Gators signed three highly
rated defensive tackles in their 2010
recruiting class Sharrif Floyd, Do-
minique Easley and Leon Orr and
the team is expected to have to cut
two scholarships before the fall to
make the limit of 85.
Spring practice begins March 17.


Subway reopens in Reitz


By TATIANA QUIROGA
Alligator Contributing Writer

The revamped food stores on the ground
floor of the Reitz Union did not come cheap.
Aramark, UF's food provider, spent about
$520,000 to create the new Subway location, said
Reitz Union executive director Eddie Daniels.
The relocation of Freshens and the addition
of the Provisions on Demand (P.O.D.) Market
cost about $456,000 and was paid for by Ara-
mark, the Reitz Union and the UF Business Ser-
vices Division.
Subway was relocated to the ground floor
of the Reitz Union and opened Saturday, while
Freshens and P.O.D. Market, a convenience
store, opened Monday in the space across from
Subway.
Subway, Freshens and P.O.D. Market loca-
tions are open from 9 a.m. to midnight daily.
"The new Subway location is larger and will
offer a three-line ordering system, which will in-


crease speed of service for our customers," said
Jill Rodriguez, marketing program manager for
Gator Dining Services.
During Summer B of this year, the old Sub-
way location will be replaced by a Panda Ex-
press, she said.
"The new Subway location is larger
and will offer a three-line ordering
system, which will increase speed
of service for our customers."
Jill Rodriguez
marketing manager Gator Dining Services

Rodriguez said grand opening week spe-
cials will include a free cookie with a purchase
at Subway this week.
Interior design junior Xhylin Chediak said
she likes the new Subway location.
"It's a lot more space," Chediak said. "Sub-
way is always packed."


Frat raises funds


ABOUT 1,600 PEOPLE
ATTENDED THE EVENT.

By CJ PRUNER
Alligator Writer

Dressed in cheerleading outfits
bearing their letters, members of
UF's Greek community strutted
their stuff Monday in the second
annual Beta Bring It On philan-
thropy event sponsored by Beta
Theta Pi Fraternity.
Performing in front of about
1,600 people at the Phillips Center
for the Performing Arts, more than
a dozen sororities leaped and cart-
wheeled to the enthusiastic chants
of audience members.
The sororities each had their
own cheers promoting their orga-
nizations and praising Beta Theta
Pi.
Judges of the cheer competi-
tion included former Gators foot-


ball players Riley Cooper and Joey
Sorrentino and Gators quarterback
John Brantley.
The group with the best cheer
earns a free limousine ride and a
megaphone award. The name of
the winning sorority was not avail-
able at press time. Event proceeds
go to the National Alzheimer's As-
sociation and the Thomas Oliver
Brown Scholarship, named after
a former Beta brother killed five
years ago at the Florida-
Greek Georgia game.
Life Adorned in brightly
colored exercise shorts,
Eric Russell and Anthony Craw-
ford, both seniors in Beta Theta Pi,
acted as emcees for the event.
According to Russell, members
of Beta Theta Pi have been practic-
ing for months for the show.
"We're not just having fun;
it's also for a good cause," Rus-
sell said. "We're the right men for
something like this."


*UF senior center
fielder Matt den
Dekker is the
favorite to replace
Avery Barnes as the
Gators' leadoff hit-
ter this season. He
was at the top of
the order 29 games
the last two years.

Two arrested after beating and leaving homeless man to die


Two St. Francis House residents were ar-
rested and charged with attempted murder
for beating a homeless man Saturday.
Anthony Fox, 38, and Beverely Thorton,
37, visited the victim, Thorton's ex-boyfriend
in his tent at Tent City, to pick up some of her
things, according to the Gainesville Police De-
partment report.
Fox cut into the tent, then punched the
man in the face, put a knife to his neck and
said, "I'm gonna kill you," the report stated.


Thorton grabbed a tree limb and beat her
ex-boyfriend in the face, arm, knee and pelvis.
He was left unconscious, swollen, bruised and
bleeding heavily, police said.
The victim woke up six hours later and
called for help until someone took him to the
emergency room at Shands at UF. Fox ad-
mitted he "beat his ass with the stick" in self
defense and was found carrying a knife with
blood on it.

Graham Center

focuses on civic

engagement
In 2008, Florida
ranked 34'h in voter
turnout. Some 70
percent of Florid-
ians report cutting
back on civic activi-
ties in the past year.
Our state faces a
civic crisis.
At the Bob
Graham Center for Ann Henderson
Public Service, these
statistics caused us to ask what contribu-
tion our university is making to prepare
students for active citizenship. In addi-
tion to the excellent education provided,
are we specifically training students to
become the citizens our democracy re-
quires, or do we assume that a fine but
general education is sufficient?
Derek Bok's book, "Our Under-
achieving Colleges" (2005), makes a
compelling case that colleges need to
do more. Bok will be at Digital Worlds
Institute at 3 p.m. on Feb. 23, to start
a dialogue that we hope will result in a
more visible focus on civic engagement.
The Bob Graham Center also has
received an Americorps grant, "Making
Citizens." This will assist in efforts to in-
crease the number of immigrant staff and
community members who take and pass
the citizenship exam, help new citizens
become active community members, and
train Americorps members/students to
become more engaged citizens.

bobgrahamcenter.ufl.edu.

'Extreme Makeover' has
UF connection
Most college students can't claim to
have worked on the set of a national televi-
sion show.
Ryan McGinn and Aaron Wilbur can.
Both students at the University of
Florida's College of Design, Construction
and Planning volunteered their time as pro-
duction assistants for "Extreme Makeover:
Home Edition," during its Gainesville build.
McGinn, from Sebastian, Fla., is a mas-
ter's student studying architecture. Wilbur,
from Melbourne, Fla., is a fifth-year
senior in landscape architecture.
They assisted with security, bever-
ages and food, and moving televi-
sion cameras and furniture. As fans
of the show, it gave them a chance
to see things from the other side.
"There is more to that show
than what TV viewers might think
actually happens," McGinn said.
According to Wilbur, the house
wasn't the only thing they built.
"You're around those people a lot and
you develop friendships with them,"
Wilbur said.
He is already making plans to work
with the show again someday.

UF helps preserve the

voices of history

Students of the Samuel Proctor Oral History Program, known as SPOHP,
will bring history to life in the Gainesville community during Black History Month.
"A lot of people on campus are pushing for major initiatives for black history," Paul Ortiz, director
of SPOHP, said.
University of Florida faculty and students of the SPOHP are working to preserve and promote lo-
cal history by educating the community on past projects in Mississippi, and by implementing similar
initiatives locally.
-- Ortiz led a small group of students on a research trip this past
summer to expose them to the prominent black history of Indi-
anola, Miss. For five days, the students recorded personal anec-
dotes of locals who experienced the civil rights movement.
The public is invited to a multimedia presentation of the Mis-
sissippi project from 6 to 8 p.m. on Feb. 17 at Gainesville's Civic
--- Media Center, 433 S. Main St. The presentation will include a
question-and-answer session with a panel of SPOHP students.
Currently the project interviews are in the process of being
Suploaded as part of a digital library. Select narratives will be avail-
able through iTunes podcasts.
Candice Ellis, UF senior, conducted about five interviews
during the research trip. She said that hearing the stories really
UF students Khambria Clarke (left) brought history to life and changed her perspective.
and Amanda Noll (not pictured) in- "You can't compare reading a history book to speaking to
terview an Indianola, Miss., resident these people in person," she said.
at the town's Henry M. Seymour Because the oral histories are subjective, they provide deeper
Library. insight to history than a text book, Ortiz said.
"They can tell you what it feels like to step into a ditch
because a white person was walking on the sidewalk," Ortiz said. "Or how it feels to have to explain to
your daughter why she can't drink out of the water fountain."

Students share faith


* TESTIMONIAL TUESDAYS TAKE
PLACE ON TURLINGTON PLAZA.

By ASHLEY WILLIAMS
Alligator Contributing Writer

Each week on Turlington Plaze, a
group of students participates in Testimo-
nial Tuesdays and tell stories about how
they became Christians, offering their
message to anyone who wants to listen.
"I know for me, when I'm out there,
it's amazing to hear what God has done,"
said Shawn Findlater, the group's found-
er. "He's really worked some miracles in
people's lives."
Right now, the participants are a few
members of Findlater's church at First As-
sembly of God. The group meets at 11:45
a.m.
Findlater said he got the idea to create
the group while he was praying because
he felt it would be a good way for others
to hear how good God is.
Findlater believes that giving a testi-
mony helps those who are listening relate
to the message.
Although there are various ways to
share beliefs, not every method is suc-


cessful in making a connection with the
listeners.
"You can talk about what God says
and still not get across what God is," he
said.
Bringing people to God isn't the only
benefit the group gets from giving testi-
monies.
Wesla Bourdeau, a member of the
Rock of Gainesville's Rock Your Life pro-
gram, said that members of the group can
be reminded of how far their faith has
brought them and get a sense of fulfill-
ment of doing something
On asked of them.
Campus "We're all called to be a
witness, and I think by giv-
ing our testimony we're being a witness
to God's grace," she said.
Bourdeau feels that using a person's
story to witness helps make a personal
connection to those listening.
According to Bourdeau, it draws
them in more than simply spout-
ing out rules and regulations.
But the best part for him is seeing how it
affects those who listen and truly take in
the message.
"You can see a glimmer of freedom in
their eyes, and you know that it's really
helping them," Findlater said.


Talent show draws 200


By ASHLEY HEMMY
Alligator Contributing Writer

When four UF professors walked to the
front of room 109 in Little Hall, they didn't
start lecturing.
They sang a song in Chinese to the crowd
of about 200 students and faculty gathered
Monday night to celebrate the Year of the Ti-
ger at the Chinese New Year Talent Show.
Students stood up, clapped and sang
along. They also performed by singing,
dancing, reading poetry and performing a
"Finding Nemo" skit in Chinese at the talent
show, which was sponsored by the Asian
Studies program and the Department of
Languages, Literatures and Cultures.
The Chinese New Year began Sunday,
and the year of the tiger stands for bravery
and independence.
Students performed with energy, con-
fidence and humor. Many joked as they
performed and kept the audience laughing
throughout the show.
The audience clapped the most during


the performance of a group of freshmen
who danced and sang to "Beijing huanying
ni."
The students pranced around the stage
as they sang the words in a range of differ-
ent pitches.
Between performances, the six emcees
led games like jeopardy and trivia, drew
raffles and handed out prizes.
"You perform because you don't
want to let your classmates
down."
John Mahoney
UF sophomore

Professor I-Chun Peir said participation
in the talent show is voluntary, but students
love the event.
John Mahoney, a sophomore Chinese
major, said students do not just perform for
themselves.
"You perform because you don't want to
let your classmates down," Mahoney said.

Constitution Amendments for the 2010 Spring Ballot

Fellow members of the Gator Nation:

As you may know, Student Government elections are upon us. While you may or may not vote in these elections, it is important that you know that this election is a bit different than most. Every 10
years, our student body Constitution demands that a Commission convene to draft revisions to our constitution, and this process has occurred over the last 14 months. The results of the
Commission's work will be on the ballot during this election and you will have the opportunity to accept or reject the changes. I write to you today, as the Chairman of this Commission, to encourage
you to vote in favor of these changes.

The 20 members of the Commission are proposing many important changes to our Constitution. The process was not a political process, but one designed to ensure that this important document
holds our elected leaders accountable, that this document is updated and current, and that our student body has access to our student courts and student leaders. Our changes lower the threshold
for impeachment for Student Senators that have been accused of official misconduct. We lowered the threshold to submit constitutional initiatives to the Student Supreme Court. In light of Florida
Board of Governors Resolution 08-23, we ensured the continued viability and presence of the former office of Honor Court Chancellor by creating a presidentially appointed position.

The 20 members of this Commission span the entire spectrum of our Gator Nation community. From Majority and Minority party senators, the Interim Dean of Students, the current Senate President
Pro-Tem, the current Chief Justice of the Student Body Supreme Court, the Director of Student Activities and Involvement, to many involved undergraduate, graduate, and law students. The result is
a comprehensive and united effort to help ensure that our student government, like our student body, remains unrivaled in reputation, both today and into the future. I would encourage you to review
the proposed changes and email me directly to discuss any questions you may have. We hope you will take the time to vote to pass this new Constitution.

Sincerely,
David M. Kerner
Chairman, 2009-2010 Constitution Revision Commission
3 LAW
dkerner@ufl.edu

On Behalf of the Full Commission: Taylor Tribou, Ben Cavataro, Thomas Cockriel, Matt Michel, Jay Miller, Naadira Renfroe, Dan Siegel, Jacqueline Acosta, Victoria Ajayi, Kirby Bissel, Brooke Eisen-
smith, Audrey Goldman, Kara Olesky, Frank Pierce, Whitney Smith, Josh Winegar, Dr. Paige Crandall (Interim Dean of Students), Dr. Nancy Chrystal-Green (Director of Student Activities and In-
volvement), Mr. Chris Loschiavo (Director of Student Conduct and Conflict Resolution).


Language as it will appear on the ballot:

Should the Student Body Constitution be amended to: change the time for appointment of Summer Replacement Senators from May 1 to

Editorial

Feel Beta

Fundraiser too busy

stroking egos

As Americans, the Editorial Board understands that
people stroke egos in exchange for money. When
bragging and brown-nosing rears its head in chari-
table events, however, we have to draw a line.
Beta Theta Pi's philanthropy raised money to fund a schol-
arship and combat Alzheimer's disease. It also raised our eye-
brows because the fraternity used sororities performing cheers
about their own houses to draw an audience.
Reliving their glory days as cheerleaders is one thing, but
the sisters focused on being judged for praising their groups.
The objective of the competition spotlights a glaring narcis-
sistic problem at an event which should humble the people
involved.
It seems to us that the Greek community tends to put up an
if-we-throw-money-at-a-charity-they-can't-say-jack shield to
defend from attacks on its self-serving entertainment choices.
As if setting up a contest to be told how great they are isn't
bad enough, we question the necessity of the cheers in the first
place.
Why would people train for months to sing the praises
of their own organizations? We're not saying cheers raising
awareness about Alzheimer's come by the dozen, but with
the time and effort used to practice, coach and set up for the
fundraiser, we're sure more people could have been helped.
Imagine if the practice times were used to build houses for
Habitat of Humanity, not to mention the potential power of
an ex-Gators football player's endorsement.
It's time for the people leading these events to redirect their
efforts away from vanity and toward the well-being of their
fellow men.


NoSCAR


N thing says love like
"Gentlemen, start
your engines!"
We can practically read the
Hallmark cards now: "You
rev my engine harder than
Dale Earnhardt Jr. Happy
Valentine's Day, honey. Now
hold my beer!"
Call us strange or even
outdated. But we at the Edito-
rial Board enjoyed our boxes
of chocolates and flowers our
significant others showered
us with on Valentine's Day.
We're sentimental. We're
sappy. And, most important-
ly, we're normal. Some of us
ruined special breakfasts we
planned for our sweethearts.
Some of us spent the day with
family. But none of us took
our honeys to the NASCAR
event of the season to watch a
500-mile race in a certain san-
dy town to the south called
Daytona Beach.


And we can't seem to un-
derstand how others did.
Don't get us wrong, some
of us are very in tune with
our Southern roots. One of us
spent part of Valentine's Day
at the Bass Pro Shop in Orlan-
do. (We're judging, too.)
But for the most part, we
can't seem to understand the
concept of spending the holi-
day of love watching a set of
cars take 200 laps around one
big circle with thousands of
other NASCAR-jacket and
camoflauge-hat wearing, die-
hard fans hoping for a fiery
crash over a photo finish.
And does anyone else
think that whole pothole thing
delaying the Great American
Race is just a little bit funny?
We usually aren't particu-
larly fond of potholes, but this
one was like a special delivery
from Cupid himself a Val-
entine's Day gift for all.

Unconditional love not a


Unconditional love is a strange thing to think about.
It's often held up as the purest, most sincere sort
of love the sort of special love that transcends the
pettiness and jealousy associated with most of the flawed
relationships that supposedly make up the majority of our
everyday connections.
Conversely, conditional love is often lambasted as some-
thing that doesn't even count as actual love. It's not really
love, some might argue, if you have to fit some criteria before
it's given to you.
This is all well and good for the universal sort of love that
we should give and feel for each other as members of the
human family. But for the specific, personal love that defines
our relationships with our friends and significant others, I'm
not completely sold.
It's a pretty bold statement to say that you love someone
unconditionally. That literally means that you have no condi-
tions on the love you offer them. There are no circumstances
under which you'll stop offering it, and there is nothing that
the recipient of your love can do that will cause you to cut
it off.
And that sounds dangerously close to a sort of emotional
enslavement love that's offered involuntarily and without
limitation. Besides, being possibly unfair to yourself and eas-
ily abused by the unscrupulous sounds utterly unromantic.
It's akin to when people say "I need you" as a way of
conveying how much they love someone. Necessity is a poor
basis for love because, by definition, it can't be the basis of
selfless love; when you feel that you need someone, there's
always something intrinsically self-serving playing some role
in the decision to keep that person in your life. And thinking
back to the people I've loved the most in my life, it's not that
I needed them to be happy, it's just that there was no one I'd
rather share my happiness with than them.
On the other hand, the conditions we set on our love can
give it meaning. On the most basic level, it's a show of self-re-
spect to say that your love is important enough to give it only

realistic goal
to those who demonstrate that they
value it. Loving someone uniquely,
the sort of love that gives the recipient
a warm feeling of being appreciated,
requires some measure of condition-
setting. Knowing that love can be lost
provides a reason to take steps to pro-
tect it.
But this might be an overly pedan-
tic way of looking at unconditional


love.
I don't think it's unreasonable to say that many aspects
of mainstream culture are conducive to making people feel
inadequate. As much as people talk about how overly feel-
good we've become, it's not hard to be told, implicitly or
otherwise, that we're not smart, interesting, pretty, funny,
put-together or just altogether worthwhile enough to be
worthy of consideration. Media messages, TV commercials,
cutthroat job interviews and hypercompetitive academia are
all more than happy to drive that home.
It's not hard to see how some stability of love could be ap-
pealing. If not unconditional love, then love with some room
for error. Or at least love that feels like it'd take some serious
scrubbing before it wears off.
Truly unconditional love is just as meaningless as love
based on too many conditions. Nobody should have to feel
that the love they're receiving is generic and unearned, nor
should anybody feel compelled to jump through hoops and
perpetually impress somebody to earn that love.
Ultimately, it's not really about unconditional love in
the strictest sense of the phrase. It's just about being aware
that you'll find no shortage of people who are willing to tell
you, "I'll love you only if ...," and feeling a little appreciative
whenever you find someone of sound mind and judgment
who's willing to tell you, "I'll love you even if ...."

Genocide, abortion not the same


Genocide is the systematic and deliberate
slaughter of a specific race, nationality or
culture. This term applies to what hap-
pened in the concentration camps in Hitler's Ger-
many, as well as to the slaughter of non-Arabic
people of Darfur, Sudan, by the militant govern-
ment. It does not apply, however, to abortion. No
matter how you feel about the issue of abortion,
everyone should be able to agree that it is not, at
least, a genocide.
No mother is going to get an abortion because
she doesn't want to propagate her own race or reli-
gion. Abortions are considered and undergone for


many different reasons, but
genocide is not something
that is considered.
For the anti-abortion pro-
testers to have pictures of
Darfur and of the Holocaust
Paul Murty on the Plaza of the Americas,
letters@a llgator org likening the two to abortion,
is shameful. By calling abor-
tion a genocide, they are
purposely misleading students who walk through
the plaza every day.

STUDENT GOVERNMENT

Fliers create conflict


By ELIZABETH BEHRMAN
Alligator Writer

A war of words between the Unite Par-
ty and the Student Alliance party is already
underway even though students have a
week to wait before Student Government
elections.
Students found fliers critical of the
Unite Party placed on the windshields of
cars parked along Fraternity Row and So-
rority Row and distributed on the Plaza of
the Americas late last week.
The fliers featured the Unite Party sym-
bol and the message, "Obey?: A message
from Greeks for a Democratic campus."
In the Friday edition of the Alligator,
letters from students said the Student Alli-
ance party distributed the fliers.
But Jonathan Ossip, the Senate leader of
the Student Alliance party, said the party
did not distribute the fliers.
He said the letters were from students
who did not confirm who made the fliers
before attacking his party.
"I just think they saw this as an oppor-
tunity to attack their opposition, and they
did so with little regard for the truth," Os-


sip said.
Unite Party spokesman Ben Meyers
said the Unite Party does not want to focus
on the message of the fliers, which were at-
tacking the Unite Party.
"We really want to concentrate on the
campaign, and hopefully stuff like that
doesn't happen," he said.
Part of the Unite Party's campaign in-
cludes a party video available on YouTube
and the Unite Party's Web site, uniteparty.
com.
The video was cre-
ated by Unite Party vol-
unteers and features stu-
dents expressing pride
in SG.
Nick Mildebrath,
Gossip campaign manager for
the Student Alliance
party, said his party's video is also avail-
able on the Student Alliance party's Web
site, ufstudentalliance.com and on You-
Tube. It includes students describing how
it is time for change in SG.
The Action Party could not be reached
for comment about its party platform or
campaign tactics.

Hundreds of students walked
past towering photographs about
8 feet tall of bloody fetuses dis-
played on the Reitz Union North
Lawn and the Plaza of the Ameri-
cas Monday.
The presentation of images,
which lasted from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.,
was part of the Genocide Aware-


lels between abortion and genocide
by showing graphic pictures of
dead genocide victims alongside
equally graphic pictures of aborted
fetuses.
"It's by showing these pictures
that we can make abortion un-
thinkable," said Lukas Bebjak, a
representative for the Center for
Bioethical Reform, an anti-abortion


ance. "Like slavery, 150 years from
now, people will look at [abortion]
and say, 'How did we
On let this happen?'"
Campus The two fenced-in
displays of images
also drew about a dozen sign-
holding protesters from Planned
Parenthood.

nt,"
ctor


of education and communication
for Planned Parenthood of North
Florida. "We're just here to edu-
cate. If a woman has an unwanted
pregnancy in this country, she has
options."
Students had the chance to
voice their opinions and ask the
event staff questions during an
open microphone session.


Most questions focused on the
differences between genocide and
abortion.
"The difference is that the [un-
born] are not aware of anything,"
UF freshman Kenya Johnson said.
"I think abortion is wrong most of
the time, but there is a difference."
Nick Tomlinson, a UF geogra-
phy senior, disagreed.
"[A fetus] is just a string of
cells," Tomlinson said. "It's not a
human yet. That's the difference."

UF looking for new leadoff hitter

By TYLER JETT
Alligator Writer
tjett@alligator org

Florida seems to have everything
figured out entering the 2010 sea-
son.
Coach Kevin O'Sullivan said the
No. 7 Gators are two-deep at every
position except for pitcher, where
UF has a stable of young, live arms
thanks to two-straight recruiting
classes ranked in the top five by
Baseball America.
UF also has the middle of its
lineup loaded with 2009 Southeast-
ern Conference Co-Freshman of the
Year Preston Tucker batting third
and newcomer Austin Maddox,
physically one of the biggest players
on the team, hitting cleanup.
"Losing Avery, it's a lot
from our lineup. He was ,
really tough to strike out
(and) had a knack for get-
ting on base. We're going
to look for someone to
hopefully fill that role."
Kevin O'Sullivan
UF baseball coach


But, with just three days left until
opening night, one important ques-
tion still lingers: Who's up first?
For the past two seasons, out-
fielder Avery Barnes was a constant
atop UF's lineup, hitting leadoff in
93 of 122 games. Barnes, who was
drafted in the 11th round by the
Colorado Rockies in July, led the
Gators in hits (90), stolen bases (18)
and runs scored (76) in 2009.
But now, Barnes is gone, and
O'Sullivan needs a new No. 1.
"Losing Avery, it's a lot from our
lineup," O'Sullivan said. "He was
really tough to strike out (and) had a
knack for getting on base. We're go-
ing to look for someone to hopefully
fill that role."
Senior center fielder Matt den
Dekker and freshman shortstop
Nolan Fontana are the leading
candidates to bat first this season,
O'Sullivan said.
Fontana, who is competing with
fellow freshman Cody Dent for a
starting shortstop position, hit lead-
off for the 2008 USA 18-U National
Team at the World Junior Champi-
onships. Although he said he's wil-


UF center fielder Matt den Dekker returned to UF for his senior sea-
son despite being selected in the MLB Draft. Den Dekker will look to
improve from his disappointing junior campaign.


ing to hit anywhere, Fontana added
he's most comfortable batting first.
O'Sullivan said Fontana is patient
at the plate, can bunt well and is a
threat to steal bases all character-
istics of a productive leadoff hitter.
But the favorite to bat first is den
Dekker, who hit leadoff in the 29
games Barnes didn't the past two
seasons.
Den Dekker was projected to be
an early selection in the 2009 MLB
Draft entering last season, and those
expectations negatively affected his
performance at the plate.
He said he pressed too much,
trying to pull home runs instead
of going the other way on outside
pitches.


"You say you're not worrying
about it," den Dekker said of the ex-
pectations. "You obviously have it
in the back of your head."
Not including a 19-game hot
streak, den Dekker hit .263 last year.
After falling to the 16th round
of the draft, where the Pittsburgh
Pirates selected him, den Dekker
elected to return to Gainesville.
Instead of playing in a collegiate
league or for Team USA, like he has
the past two summers, den Dekker
stayed on campus and tried to relax
after a disappointing year.
In the offseason, the coaches have
worked with den Dekker on hitting
outside pitches to the opposite field

Smith expected to


add power to order

HE WILL REPLACE BRANDON McARTHUR AT
THIRD BASE.

By ANTHONY CHIANG
Alligator Staff Writer
achiang@alligatororg

Bryson Smith has been impressed by the quality of
pitchers he has faced so far, and he has only seen action in
scrimmages against his teammates.
Smith, a transfer from Young Harris College, has not
played a game in a Gators uniform yet, but
he can already tell the difference from his
junior college days.
"I come down here and everyone is so
Baseball good and so talented," he said. "So, it's
been quite a change from junior college
because there is not as much depth as there is here."
The adjustment at the plate shouldn't be a problem for
the junior third baseman, who will likely start at that spot
in No. 7 Florida's season opener Friday.
He won National Junior College Player of the Year last
season after hitting .467 along with 21 home runs and 90
RBIs.

It's time for the Gators to


fix their arrest problem


Under Urban Meyer, Flori-
da has come to be known
for three things: Tim
Tebow, winning and getting ar-
rested.
Tebow is gone, and winning
may take a brief hiatus, meaning
it's time to take care of what's
behind Door 3.
Freshman defensive tackle
Gary Brown continued the tra-
dition over the weekend, get-
ting pinched for allegedly slap-
ping one female and scratching
another after they asked him
and a friend to leave a party
around 5 a.m.
Brown's arrest puts the
Gators' total around 27 since
Meyer arrived in 2005, accord-
ing to the Orlando Sentinel's
tally.


All the
usual ca-
veats ap-
ply. These
are just
Mike McCall c charges

McCallin' It and he'll
Like I See It
mmccall@alligatororg probably
lawyer up
and get out
from under them without too
much trouble.
Or maybe he didn't even do
anything wrong.
There's also a question of
who to blame here.
Is it the coaches? They can't
be on top of these guys 24/7.
Then again, they recruited
them.
SEE MIKE, PAGE 16


EGary Brown had every right to be upset that he was getting kicked out of a
party at 5 a.m. Everyone knows the party don't stop 'til 6 in the morning.... Tiger
Woods allegedly impregnated a porn-star mistress twice due to his aversion to
using contraceptives. We shouldn't be surprised. He's a golfer. He's shooting for
the fewest amount of strokes as possible.


Today's question: Who's to blame
for the Gators' rash of arrests under
Urban Meyer?


SAfter falling to South Carolina and Xavier,
UF slipped into the "Last Four Out" section
of ESPN's Bracketology with Joe Lunardi.
Lunardi had the Gators pegged to make the
NCAA Tournament in last week's edition.

Transfer likely to start at third


INFIELD, from page 14


Harrison Diamond/ Alligator Staff
UF coach Kevin O'Sullivan has been impressed with junior-college transfer Bryson Smith's dedi-
cation to improving his fielding this offseason.


Den Dekker top choice to replace Barnes


LEADOFF, from page 14


and becoming more comfortable against left-hand-
ed pitchers. Left-handed hitters like den Dekker
have more trouble recognizing pitches from south-
paws than they do from righties.
The coaches have also stressed putting the bat
on top of pitches to produce more ground balls.
"Matt runs so well that any ball hit on the
ground to the left side of the infield that the short-


stop has to go to his right (den Dekker) has a chance
to beat out," O'Sullivan said.
Den Dekker also wants to be
more relaxed so minor slumps
S don't become year-long prob-
lems.
Baseball "(1) just go out there and have
fun every day playing something
I love," den Dekker said. "That's the way I'm going
to look at it this year. That's the way I'm going to
try and look at it for the rest of my career."


"Velocity was about the same
as junior college, but the off-speed
(pitches) guys have here is ridicu-
lous," Smith said. "It took a little ad-
justment to get used to."
He was limited during the fall be-
cause of a mid-June surgery on his
wrist, but Smith has been going at it
100 percent in the spring.
UF coach Kevin O'Sullivan envi-
sions Smith hitting either second,
fifth or sixth in the lineup. His speed
and ability to hit for contact make
him a viable option for the top of the
order.
His former coach at Young Harris,
Rick Robinson, remembers a point in
the 2009 season in which Smith had
only struck out twice through 100 at-
bats.
He finished the year averaging
only one strikeout for about every
nine at-bats.
Defensively, however, he did not
enjoy the same success.
Smith ended last season with 17
errors and a .899 fielding percent-
age.
But some of his problems with
the glove stemmed from the circum-
stances he was put under.
"The biggest thing for us was that
we really didn't know where Bryson
was going to play," Robinson said.
"We were moving him around an
awful lot. We didn't really give him
an opportunity to settle into a posi-
tion."
He saw time at second and third


base and in the outfield at Young
Harris.
But since coming to Florida, Smith
has worked solely at third, where he
will replace Brandon McArthur.
Smith takes 100 ground balls ev-
ery day from UF assistant coach Brad
Weitzel.
"I've been working on it daily,"
Smith said. "I've seen dramatic im-
provement, so I feel a lot better and
lot more comfortable now."
It hasn't been easy, though. The
coaches had to re-teach the funda-
mentals to Smith, who needed to sure
up both his fielding and throwing.
"I've been working on it daily.
I've seen dramatic improve-
ment, so I feel a lot better and
lot more comfortable now."
Bryson Smith
UF junior third baseman

"He comes out here on his off days
and works on his own," O'Sullivan
said. "He's taking it as a challenge,
and he has improved an awful lot."
The 6-foot-2 Smith was drafted in
the 30th round of the MLB Draft by
the Cleveland Indians but decided to
transfer to Florida instead of making
the jump to professional baseball for
one huge reason.
"He still has some things to
prove," Robinson said. "I think his
biggest goal is making an appear-
ance in the College World Series,
and that's one of the main reasons he
chose UF."

MIKE, from page 14

Is it the players? They are
adults. Shouldn't they be capable
of handling themselves?
Is it society's fault for building
them up to feel like they're above
the law?
Is it on the high school teach-
ers, coaches or parents for letting
them slide by?
There are plenty of ways to
look at it, but at a certain point,
the blame game has to take a
backseat to just fixing the prob-


lem.
That point is now.
Florida is quickly becom-
ing a national punchline when
it comes to arrests, and without
Tebow around, the Band-Aid
covering up UF's ugly scars has
been peeled away.
The program doesn't have a
face right now, and if the Gators
aren't careful, that face is going
to be a mugshot.
For me, the answer isn't to just
kick these guys off the team. And
Meyer doesn't believe in that ei-


their, unless the crime is particu-
larly heinous.
He learned that lesson a few
years ago with cornerback Avery
Atkins, who was booted out and
later would up dead.
Meyer feels a responsibility to
try to give second chances and
develop players into better peo-
ple.
He always gives the spiel
about how his players are high-
quality humans and how his
coaching staff is all about devel-
oping good people.


Well, it's time to do that.
The first thing to say is, "STOP
HITTING WOMEN!" This re-
ally shouldn't be that hard, and it
has become something of a trend
lately.
Also, there have to be some
punishments other than making
them run or kicking them off the
team that could do the trick.
Don't let these players think
they can spend a night in the
pokey, have super-lawyer Hunt-
ley Johnson fix the situation then
get back on the field after some


extra conditioning.
From Day 1, they should know
that if they can't behave, they
can't play.
You know how players lose
playing time if they suck and
can't make tackles?
Make it clear that slapping,
choking, shooting, stealing or
fighting will be treated as more
seriously.
Until that's understood, Flor-
ida is going to keep heading to-
ward being known as the new
Thug U.

BREAKING NEWS Gators defense player arrested By MIKE McCALL attention. Alligator Staff Writer Brown, 19, and Davis had left mmccall@alligator.org party by the time officers arri UF defensive tackle Gary Brown was arrested early Sunday morning and charged with two counts of misdemeanor battery after police said he slapped one female and scratched another after they asked him to leave a party. Brown and a friend, Theodore Davis, attended a party at The Crossing at Santa Fe Apartments, and when Davis was asked to leave, he grabbed a fire extinguisher and sprayed its contents on those near him, according to a police report. Alachua County sheriff's deputies responded to the incident at 5:27 a.m., and upon arrival, they were told by two females hosting the party that the 6-foot-4-inch, 275-pound Brown slapped and scratched them. Neither victim required medical [the ved, but they were arrested at a traffic stop and booked into the Alachua County Jail shortly before 8 a.m. A five-star recruit from Greensboro West Gadsden High School, Brown did not see any game action as a freshman this past season, and his recent arrest doesn't bode well Brown for future playing time. The Gators signed three highly rated defensive tackles in their 2010 recruiting class -Sharrif Floyd, Dominique Easley and Leon Orr -and the team is expected to have to cut two scholarships before the fall to make the limit of 85. Spring practice begins March 17. -0 TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 16, 2010 Subway reopens in Reitz By TATIANA QUIROGA Alligator Contributing Writer The revamped food stores on the ground floor of the Reitz Union did not come cheap. Aramark, UF's food provider, spent about $520,000 to create the new Subway location, said Reitz Union executive director Eddie Daniels. The relocation of Freshbns and the addition of the Provisions on Demand (P.O.D.) Market cost about $456,000 and was paid for by Aramark, the Reitz Union and the UF Business Services Division. Subway was relocated to the ground floor of the Reitz Union and opened Saturday, while Freshbns and P.O.D. Market, a convenience store, opened Monday in the space across from Subway. Subway, Freshbns and P.O.D. Market locations are open from 9 a.m. to midnight daily. "The new Subway location is larger and will offer a three-line ordering system, which will increase speed of service for our customers," said Jill Rodriguez, marketing program manager for Gator Dining Services. During Summer B of this year, the old Subway location will be replaced by a Panda Express, she said. "The new Subway location is larger and will offer a three-line ordering system, which will increase speed of service for our customers." Jill Rodriguez marketing manager Gator Dining Services Rodriguez said grand opening week specials will include a free cookie with a purchase at Subway this week. Interior design junior Xhylin Chediak said she likes the new Subway location. "It's a lot more space," Chediak said. "Subway is always packed." Frat raises funds -ABOUT 1,600 PEOPLE ATTENDED THE EVENT. By CJ PRUNER Alligator Writer Dressed in cheerleading outfits bearing their letters, members of UF's Greek community strutted their stuff Monday in the second annual Beta Bring It On philanthropy event sponsored by Beta Theta Pi Fraternity. Performing in front of about 1,600 people at the Phillips Center for the Performing Arts, more than a dozen sororities leaped and cartwheeled to the enthusiastic chants of audience members. The sororities each had their own cheers promoting their organizations and praising Beta Theta Pi. Judges of the cheer competition included former Gators football players Riley Cooper and Joey Sorrentino and Gators quarterback John Brantley. The group with the best cheer earns a free limousine ride and a megaphone award. The name of the winning sorority was not available at press time. Event proceeds go to the National Alzheimer's Association and the Thomas Oliver Brown Scholarship, named after a former Beta brother killed five years ago at the FloridaGreek Georgia game. Life Adorned in brightly colored exercise shorts, Eric Russell and Anthony Crawford, both seniors in Beta Theta Pi, acted as emcees for the event. According to Russell, members of Beta Theta Pi have been practicing for months for the show. "We're not just having fun; it's also for a good cause," Russell said. "We're the right men for something like this." EUF senior center fielder Matt den Dekker is the favorite to replace Avery Barnes as the Gators' leadoff hitter this season. He was at the top of the order 29 games the last two years. See Story, Page 14. Two arrested after beating and leaving homeless man to die Two St. Francis House residents were arrested and charged with attempted murder for beating a homeless man Saturday. Anthony Fox, 38, and Beverely Thorton, 37, visited the victim, Thorton's ex-boyfriend in his tent at Tent City, to pick up some of her things, according to the Gainesville Police Department report. Fox cut into the tent, then punched the man in the face, put a knife to his neck and said, "I'm gonna kill you," the report stated. Thorton grabbed a tree limb and beat her ex-boyfriend in the face, arm, knee and pelvis. He was left unconscious, swollen, bruised and bleeding heavily, police said. The victim woke up six hours later and called for help until someone took him to the emergency room at Shands at UF. Fox admitted he "beat his ass with the stick" in self defense and was found carrying a knife with blood on it. -KATHERINE BEIN Today FORECAST 2 OPINIONS 6 CLASSIFIEDS 9 sunn Sunny CROSSWORD 11 53/29 SPORTS 14 visit www.alligator.org Everybody was Kongfu Fighting Sylvia Tseng and Bryant Nguyen from the Meihua Student Association of Martial Arts perform kongfu at the 2010 Chinese New Year Talent Show Monday.

TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 16, 2010 0 ALLIGATOR, ADVERTISEMENT, 3 Graham Center focuses on civic engagement In 2008, Florida ranked 34' in voter turnout. Some 70 percent of Floridians report cutting back on civic activities in the past year. Our state faces a civic crisis. At the Bob Graham Center for Ann Henderson Public Service, these statistics caused us to ask what contribution our university is making to prepare students for active citizenship. In addition to the excellent education provided, are we specifically training students to become the citizens our democracy requires, or do we assume that a fine -but general -education is sufficient? Derek Bok's book, "Our Underachieving Colleges" (2005), makes a compelling case that colleges need to do more. Bok will be at Digital Worlds Institute at 3 p.m. on Feb. 23, to start a dialogue that we hope will result in a more visible focus on civic engagement. The Bob Graham Center also has received an Americorps grant, "Making Citizens." This will assist in efforts to increase the number of immigrant staff and community members who take and pass the citizenship exam, help new citizens become active community members, and train Americorps members/students to become more engaged citizens. For more information, visit bobgrahamcenter.ufl.edu. Ann Henderson, Director, Bob Graham Center 'Extreme Makeover' has UF connection Most college students can't claim to have worked on the set of a national television show. Ryan McGinn and Aaron Wilbur can. Both students at the University of Florida's College of Design, Construction and Planning volunteered their time as production assistants for "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition," during its Gainesville build. McGinn, from Sebastian, Fla., is a master's student studying architecture. Wilbur, from Melbourne, Fla., is a fifth-year senior in landscape architecture. They assisted with security, beverages and food, and moving television cameras and furniture. As fans of the show, it gave them a chance to see things from the other side. Gai "There is more to that show Ma than what TV viewers might think actually happens," McGinn said. According to Wilbur, the house wasn't the only thing they built. "You're around those people a lot and you develop friendships with them," Wilbur said. He is already making plans to work with the show again someday.

King Museum in Indianola, Miss. UF helps preserve the voices of history To arrange a local oral-history recording, e-mail Kirsten.wetherbee@ gmail.com. Students of the Samuel Proctor Oral History Program, known as SPOHP, will bring history to life in the Gainesville community during Black History Month. "A lot of people on campus are pushing for major initiatives for black history," Paul Ortiz, director of SPOHP, said. University of Florida faculty and students of the SPOHP are working to preserve and promote local history by educating the community on past projects in Mississippi, and by implementing similar initiatives locally. Ortiz led a small group of students on a research trip this past summer to expose them to the prominent black history of Indianola, Miss. For five days, the students recorded personal anecdotes of locals who experienced the civil rights movement. The public is invited to a multimedia presentation of the Mississippi project from 6 to 8 p.m. on Feb. 17 at Gainesville's Civic Media Center, 433 S. Main Sr. The presentation will include a question-and-answer session with a panel of SPOHP students. Currently the project interviews are in the process of being uploaded as part of a digital library. Select narratives will be available through iTunes podcasts. Candice Ellis, UF senior, conducted about five interviews during the research trip. She said that hearing the stories really UF students Khambria Clarke (left) brought history to life and changed her perspective. and Amanda Noll (not pictured) in"You can't compare reading a history book to speaking to terview an Indianola, Miss., resident these people in person," she said. at the town's Henry M.

4, ALLIGATOR U TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 16, 2010 Students share faith 0 TESTIMONIAL TUESDAYS TAKE PLACE ON TURLINGTON PLAZA. By ASHLEY WILLIAMS Alligator Contributing Writer Each week on Turlington Plaze, a group of students participates in Testimonial Tuesdays and tell stories about how they became Christians, offering their message to anyone who wants to listen. "I know for me, when I'm out there, it's amazing to hear what God has done," said Shawn Findlater, the group's founder. "He's really worked some miracles in people's lives." Right now, the participants are a few members of Findlater's church at First Assembly of God. The group meets at 11:45 a.m. Findlater said he got the idea to create the group while he was praying because he felt it would be a good way for others to hear how good God is. Findlater believes that giving a testimony helps those who are listening relate to the message. Although there are various ways to share beliefs, not every method is successful in making a connection with the listeners. "You can talk about what God says and still not get across what God is," he said. Bringing people to God isn't the only benefit the group gets from giving testimonies. Wesla Bourdeau, a member of the Rock of Gainesville's Rock Your Life program, said that members of the group can be reminded of how far their faith has brought them and get a sense of fulfillment of doing something On asked of them. Campus "We're all called to be a witness, and I think by giving our testimony we're being a witness to God's grace," she said. Bourdeau feels that using a person's story to witness helps make a personal connection to those listening. According to Bourdeau, it draws them in more than simply spouting out rules and regulations. But the best part for him is seeing how it affects those who listen and truly take in the message. "You can see a glimmer of freedom in their eyes, and you know that it's really helping them," Findlater said. Talent show draws 200 By ASHLEY HEMMY Alligator Contributing Writer When four UF professors walked to the front of room 109 in Little Hall, they didn't start lecturing. They sang a song in Chinese to the crowd of about 200 students and faculty gathered Monday night to celebrate the Year of the Tiger at the Chinese New Year Talent Show. Students stood up, clapped and sang along. They also performed by singing, dancing, reading poetry and performing a "Finding Nemo" skit in Chinese at the talent show, which was sponsored by the Asian Studies program and the Department of Languages, Literatures and Cultures. The Chinese New Year began Sunday, and the year of the tiger stands for bravery and independence. Students performed with energy, confidence and humor. Many joked as they performed and kept the audience laughing throughout the show. The audience clapped the most during the performance of a group of freshmen who danced and sang to "Beijing huanying ni." The students pranced around the stage as they sang the words in a range of different pitches. Between performances, the six emcees led games like jeopardy and trivia, drew raffles and handed out prizes. "You perform because you don't want to let your classmates down." John Mahoney UF sophomore Professor I-Chun Peir said participation in the talent show is voluntary, but students love the event. John Mahoney, a sophomore Chinese major, said students do not just perform for themselves. "You perform because you don't want to let your classmates down," Mahoney said.

TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 16, 2010 U ALLIGATOR, ADVERTISEMENT, 5 Constitution Amendments for the 2010 Spring Ballot Fellow members of the Gator Nation: As you may know, Student Government elections are upon us. While you may or may not vote in these elections, it is important that you know that this election is a bit different than most. Every 10 years, our student body Constitution demands that a Commission convene to draft revisions to our constitution, and this process has occurred over the last 14 months. The results of the Commission's work will be on the ballot during this election and you will have the opportunity to accept or reject the changes. I write to you today, as the Chairman of this Commission, to encourage you to vote in favor of these changes. The 20 members of the Commission are proposing many important changes to our Constitution. The process was not a political process, but one designed to ensure that this important document holds our elected leaders accountable, that this document is updated and current, and that our student body has access to our student courts and student leaders. Our changes lower the threshold for impeachment for Student Senators that have been accused of official misconduct. We lowered the threshold to submit constitutional initiatives to the Student Supreme Court. In light of Florida Board of Governors Resolution 08-23, we ensured the continued viability and presence of the former office of Honor Court Chancellor by creating a presidentially appointed position. The 20 members of this Commission span the entire spectrum of our Gator Nation community. From Majority and Minority party senators, the Interim Dean of Students, the current Senate President Pro-Tem, the current Chief Justice of the Student Body Supreme Court, the Director of Student Activities and Involvement, to many involved undergraduate, graduate, and law students. The result is a comprehensive and united effort to help ensure that our student government, like our student body, remains unrivaled in reputation, both today and into the future. I would encourage you to review the proposed changes and email me directly to discuss any questions you may have. We hope you will take the time to vote to pass this new Constitution. Sincerely, David M. Kerner Chairman, 2009-2010 Constitution Revision Commission 3 LAW dkerner@ufl.edu On Behalf of the Full Commission: Taylor Tribou, Ben Cavataro, Thomas Cockriel, Matt Michel, Jay Miller, Naadira Renfroe, Dan Siegel, Jacqueline Acosta, Victoria Ajayi, Kirby Bissel, Brooke Eisensmith, Audrey Goldman, Kara Olesky, Frank Pierce, Whitney Smith, Josh Winegar, Dr. Paige Crandall (Interim Dean of Students), Dr. Nancy Chrystal-Green (Director of Student Activities and Involvement), Mr. Chris Loschiavo (Director of Student Conduct and Conflict Resolution). Language as it will appear on the ballot: Should the Student Body Constitution be amended to: change the time for appointment of Summer Replacement Senators from May 1 to the last meeting of spring term; remove verbiage that purports to allow the Student Senate to contract on behalf of the student body; permit the Student Senate to amend election laws within four weeks, rather than five weeks, of an election; comply with Florida Board of Governors Resolution 08-23 by preserving the role of the Honor Code Chancellor, now referred to "Honor Code Executive Director," and allowing this executive director to be appointed by the Student Body President; amend Article IlIl to read "Funding Fee Increase Restrictions", instead of "Budget Restrictions"; ensure that terms of executive department heads expire concurrently with the terms of the elected executive officials; remove any reference to the "Student Honor Court" and "Student Honor Court Bar Association;" direct the submission of proposals by initiative to the Chief Justice of the Student Body; amend the proposal initiative process to provide that a petition carrying the signatures of 5% of the student body shall be placed on the ballot; authorize the Elections Commission to determine if initiative ballot titles and summaries are accurate and lawful and amend ballot titles and summary if they determine that they are not accurate, subject to appeal to the Student Body Supreme Court; require 2/3 of the trial body of the Student Senate for conviction of impeachment, instead of 3/4; make grammatical and other minor corrections and replacements. Summary of changes proposed in the amendment: 1-1: Article 11: Changes various wording in the article. For example, this proposal removes the words "by law", and replaces this phrase with "provide by Student Body law". Further, where the article used list every judicial office, it now simply states "Student Government offices of the Judicial Branch".

Further, it changes the deadline to appoint summer senators from May 1, to the last meeting of spring term. 2-3: Article Ill: Amends section 5 to mandate that the Student Senate President and the Student Senate President Pro Tempore shall be elected by the members of the senate according to their rules and procedures. 2-4: Article Ill: Amends section 6 by removing subsection (i), which purported to give the student senate the right to contract on behalf of the student body. 2-5: Article Ill: Amends section 7, subsection (i) to read "change the election laws during the four weeks before the scheduled election to be effective for that election.", instead of five weeks. 2-6: Article Ill: Amends section 7 by adding the office of "Executive Director of the Honor Code Administration" to the list of officers allowed to address the student senate. 2-7: Article Ill: Amends section 9 title to read "Funding Fee Increase Restrictions" instead of reading "Budget Restrictions". 2-8: Article Ill: Amends section 7 by removing subsection (h), which purports to give the student senate the authority to regulate a student honor court bar association. 3-2: Article IV: Amends section 4 to allow the student body president to appoint a "Student Honor Code Executive Director" to the cabinet.

6, ALLIGATOR U TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 16, 2010 Feel Beta Fundraiser too busy stroking egos Americans, the Editorial Board understands that people stroke egos in exchange for money. When bragging and brown-nosing rears its head in charitable events, however, we have to draw a line. Beta Theta Pi's philanthropy raised money to fund a scholarship and combat Alzheimer's disease. It also raised our eyebrows because the fraternity used sororities performing cheers about their own houses to draw an audience. Reliving their glory days as cheerleaders is one thing, but the sisters focused on being judged for praising their groups. The objective of the competition spotlights a glaring narcissistic problem at an event which should humble the people involved. It seems to us that the Greek community tends to put up an if-we-throw-money-at-a-charity-they-can't-say-jack shield to defend from attacks on its self-serving entertainment choices. As if setting up a contest to be told how great they are isn't bad enough, we question the necessity of the cheers in the first place. Why would people train for months to sing the praises of their own organizations? We're not saying cheers raising awareness about Alzheimer's come by the dozen, but with the time and effort used to practice, coach and set up for the fundraiser, we're sure more people could have been helped. Imagine if the practice times were used to build houses for Habitat of Humanity, not to mention the potential power of an ex-Gators football player's endorsement. It's time for the people leading these events to redirect their efforts away from vanity and toward the well-being of their fellow men NoSCAR thing says love like "Gentlemen, start your engines!" We can practically read the Hallmark cards now: "You rev my engine harder than Dale Earnhardt Jr. Happy Valentine's Day, honey. Now hold my beer!" Call us strange or even outdated. But we at the Editorial Board enjoyed our boxes of chocolates and flowers our significant others showered us with on Valentine's Day. We're sentimental. We're sappy. And, most importantly, we're normal. Some of us ruined special breakfasts we planned for our sweethearts. Some of us spent the day with family. But none of us took our honeys to the NASCAR event of the season to watch a 500-mile race in a certain sandy town to the south called Daytona Beach. And we can't seem to understand how others did. Don't get us wrong, some of us are very in tune with our Southern roots. One of us spent part of Valentine's Day at the Bass Pro Shop in Orlando. (We're judging, too.) But for the most part, we can't seem to understand the concept of spending the holiday of love watching a set of cars take 200 laps around one big circle with thousands of other NASCAR-jacket and camoflauge-hat wearing, diehard fans hoping for a fiery crash over a photo finish. And does anyone else think that whole pothole thing delaying the Great American Race is just a little bit funny? We usually aren't particularly fond of potholes, but this one was like a special delivery from Cupid himself -a Valentine's Day gift for all. 01 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 authors 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 P0 Box 14257, Gainesvi rle, FL 32604-2257Columns of about 450 words about original topics and editorial cartoons are also welcome Questions?

It's often held up as the purest, most sincere sort of love -the sort of special love that transcends the pettiness and jealousy associated with most of the flawed relationships that supposedly make up the majority of our everyday connections. Conversely, conditional love is often lambasted as something that doesn't even count as actual love. It's not really love, some might argue, if you have to fit some criteria before it's given to you. This is all well and good for the universal sort of love that we should give and feel for each other as members of the human family. But for the specific, personal love that defines our relationships with our friends and significant others, I'm not completely sold. It's a pretty bold statement to say that you love someone unconditionally. That literally means that you have no conditions on the love you offer them. There are no circumstances under which you'll stop offering it, and there is nothing that the recipient of your love can do that will cause you to cut it off. And that sounds dangerously close to a sort of emotional enslavement -love that's offered involuntarily and without limitation. Besides, being possibly unfair to yourself and easily abused by the unscrupulous sounds utterly unromantic. It's akin to when people say "I need you" as a way of conveying how much they love someone. Necessity is a poor basis for love because, by definition, it can't be the basis of selfless love; when you feel that you need someone, there's always something intrinsically self-serving playing some role in the decision to keep that person in your life. And thinking back to the people I've loved the most in my life, it's not that I needed them to be happy, it's just that there was no one I'd rather share my happiness with than them. On the other hand, the conditions we set on our love can give it meaning. On the most basic level, it's a show of self-respect to say that your love is important enough to give it only to those who demonstrate that they value it. Loving someone uniquely, the sort of love that gives the recipient a warm feeling of being appreciated, requires some measure of conditionsetting. Knowing that love can be lost Joe Dellosa provides a reason to take steps to prolet Dr lOa I I tect it. Ietters@alligator org But this might be an overly pedantic way of looking at unconditional love. I don't think it's unreasonable to say that many aspects of mainstream culture are conducive to making people feel inadequate. As much as people talk about how overly feelgood we've become, it's not hard to be told, implicitly or otherwise, that we're not smart, interesting, pretty, funny, put-together or just altogether worthwhile enough to be worthy of consideration. Media messages, TV commercials, cutthroat job interviews and hypercompetitive academia are all more than happy to drive that home. It's not hard to see how some stability of love could be appealing. If not unconditional love, then love with some room for error. Or at least love that feels like it'd take some serious scrubbing before it wears off. Truly unconditional love is just as meaningless as love based on too many conditions. Nobody should have to feel that the love they're receiving is generic and unearned, nor should anybody feel compelled to jump through hoops and perpetually impress somebody to earn that love. Ultimately, it's not really about unconditional love in the strictest sense of the phrase. It's just about being aware that you'll find no shortage of people who are willing to tell you, "I'll love you only if .," and feeling a little appreciative whenever you find someone of sound mind and judgment who's willing to tell you, "I'll love you even if .."

e Ma J Column Genocide, abortion not the same enocide is the systematic and deliberate slaughter of a specific race, nationality or culture. This term applies to what happened in the concentration camps in Hitler's Germany, as well as to the slaughter of non-Arabic people of Darfur, Sudan, by the militant government. It does not apply, however, to abortion. No matter how you feel about the issue of abortion, everyone should be able to agree that it is not, at least, a genocide. No mother is going to get an abortion because she doesn't want to propagate her own race or religion. Abortions are considered and undergone for many different reasons, but genocide is not something that is considered. For the anti-abortion protesters to have pictures of Darfur and of the Holocaust Paul Mu rty on the Plaza of the Americas letters@a ligator org likening the two to abortion, is shameful. By calling abortion a genocide, they are purposely misleading students who walk through the plaza every day. For the rest of Murty's column see alligator.org Paul Murty is an English sophomore.

8, ALLIGATOR U TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 16, 2010 STUDENT GOVERNMENT Fliers create conflict By ELIZABETH BEHRMAN Alligator Writer A war of words between the Unite Party and the Student Alliance party is already underway even though students have a week to wait before Student Government elections. Students found fliers critical of the Unite Party placed on the windshields of cars parked along Fraternity Row and Sorority Row and distributed on the Plaza of the Americas late last week. The fliers featured the Unite Party symbol and the message, "Obey?: A message from Greeks for a Democratic campus." In the Friday edition of the Alligator, letters from students said the Student Alliance party distributed the fliers. But Jonathan Ossip, the Senate leader of the Student Alliance party, said the party did not distribute the fliers. He said the letters were from students who did not confirm who made the fliers before attacking his party. "I just think they saw this as an opportunity to attack their opposition, and they did so with little regard for the truth," Ossip said. Unite Party spokesman Ben Meyers said the Unite Party does not want to focus on the message of the fliers, which were attacking the Unite Party. "We really want to concentrate on the campaign, and hopefully stuff like that doesn't happen," he said. Part of the Unite Party's campaign includes a party video available on YouTube and the Unite Party's Web site, uniteparty. com. The video was created by Unite Party volunteers and features students expressing pride in SG. Nick Mildebrath, campaign manager for the Student Alliance party, said his party's video is also available on the Student Alliance party's Web site, ufstudentalliance.com and on YouTube. It includes students describing how it is time for change in SG. The Action Party could not be reached for comment about its party platform or campaign tactics.

If a woman has an unwanted pregnancy in this country, she has options." Students had the chance to voice their opinions and ask the event staff questions during an open microphone session. Most questions focused on the differences between genocide and abortion. "The difference is that the [unborn] are not aware of anything," UF freshman Kenya Johnson said. "I think abortion is wrong most of the time, but there is a difference." Nick Tomlinson, a UF geography senior, disagreed. "[A fetus] is just a string of cells," Tomlinson said. "It's not a human yet. That's the difference." For more on the event see alligator.org Steven H.

Sports TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 16, 2010 ALLIGATOR www.alligatorSports.org UF looking for new leadoff hitter By TYLER JETT Alligator Writer tjett@alligator org Florida seems to have everything figured out entering the 2010 season. Coach Kevin O'Sullivan said the No. 7 Gators are two-deep at every position except for pitcher, where UF has a stable of young, live arms thanks to two-straight recruiting classes ranked in the top five by Baseball America. UF also has the middle of its lineup loaded with 2009 Southeastern Conference Co-Freshman of the Year Preston Tucker batting third and newcomer Austin Maddox, physically one of the biggest players on the team, hitting cleanup. "Losing Avery, it's a lot from our lineup. He was really tough to strike out (and) had a knack for getting on base. We're going to look for someone to hopefully fill that role." Kevin O'Sullivan UF baseball coach But, with just three days left until opening night, one important question still lingers: Who's up first? For the past two seasons, outfielder Avery Barnes was a constant atop UT's lineup, hitting leadoff in 93 of 122 games. Barnes, who was drafted in the 11th round by the Colorado Rockies in July, led the Gators in hits (90), stolen bases (18) and runs scored (76) in 2009. But now, Barnes is gone, and O'Sullivan needs a new No. 1. "Losing Avery, it's a lot from our lineup," O'Sullivan said. "He was really tough to strike out (and) had a knack for getting on base. We're going to look for someone to hopefully fill that role." Senior center fielder Matt den Dekker and freshman shortstop Nolan Fontana are the leading candidates to bat first this season, O'Sullivan said. Fontana, who is competing with fellow freshman Cody Dent for a starting shortstop position, hit leadoff for the 2008 USA 18-U National Team at the World Junior Championships. Although he said he's wilUF center fielder Matt den Dekker returned to UF for his senior season despite being selected in the MLB Draft. Den Dekker will look to improve from his disappointing junior campaign. ing to hit anywhere, Fontana added he's most comfortable batting first. O'Sullivan said Fontana is patient at the plate, can bunt well and is a threat to steal bases -all characteristics of a productive leadoff hitter. But the favorite to bat first is den Dekker, who hit leadoff in the 29 games Barnes didn't the past two seasons. Den Dekker was projected to be an early selection in the 2009 MLB Draft entering last season, and those expectations negatively affected his performance at the plate. He said he pressed too much, trying to pull home runs instead of going the other way on outside pitches. "You say you're not worrying about it," den Dekker said of the expectations. "You obviously have it in the back of your head." Not including a 19-game hot streak, den Dekker hit .263 last year. After falling to the 16th round of the draft, where the Pittsburgh Pirates selected him, den Dekker elected to return to Gainesville. Instead of playing in a collegiate league or for Team USA, like he has the past two summers, den Dekker stayed on campus and tried to relax after a disappointing year. In the offseason, the coaches have worked with den Dekker on hitting outside pitches to the opposite field SEE LEADOFF, PAGE 15 Smith expected to add power to order HE WILL REPLACE BRANDON McARTHUR AT THIRD BASE. By ANTHONY CHIANG Alligator Staff Writer achiang@alligator org Bryson Smith has been impressed by the quality of pitchers he has faced so far, and he has only seen action in scrimmages against his teammates. Smith, a transfer from Young Harris College, has not played a game in a Gators uniform yet, but he can already tell the difference from his junior college days. "I come down here and everyone is so Baseball good and so talented," he said. "So, it's been quite a change from junior college because there is not as much depth as there is here." The adjustment at the plate shouldn't be a problem for the junior third baseman, who will likely start at that spot in No. 7 Florida's season opener Friday. He won National Junior College Player of the Year last season after hitting .467 along with 21 home runs and 90 RBIs. SEE INFIELD, PAGE 15 It's time for the Gators to fix their arrec.

TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 16, 2010 U ALLIGATOR, 15 Transfer likely to start at third Harrison Diamond / Alligator Staff UF coach Kevin O'Sullivan has been impressed with junior-college transfer Bryson Smith's dedication to improving his fielding this offseason. Den Dekker top choice to replace Barnes LEADOFF, from page 14 and becoming more comfortable against left-handed pitchers. Left-handed hitters like den Dekker have more trouble recognizing pitches from southpaws than they do from righties. The coaches have also stressed putting the bat on top of pitches to produce more ground balls. "Matt runs so well that any ball hit on the ground to the left side of the infield that the shortstop has to go to his right (den Dekker) has a chance to beat out," O'Sullivan said. Den Dekker also wants to be more relaxed so minor slumps don't become year-long problems. Baseball "(I) just go out there and have fun every day playing something I love," den Dekker said. "That's the way I'm going to look at it this year. That's the way I'm going to try and look at it for the rest of my career." INFIELD,from page 14 "Velocity was about the same as junior college, but the off-speed (pitches) guys have here is ridiculous," Smith said. "It took a little adjustment to get used to." He was limited during the fall because of a mid-June surgery on his wrist, but Smith has been going at it 100 percent in the spring. UF coach Kevin O'Sullivan envisions Smith hitting either second, fifth or sixth in the lineup. His speed and ability to hit for contact make him a viable option for the top of the order. His former coach at Young Harris, Rick Robinson, remembers a point in the 2009 season in which Smith had only struck out twice through 100 atbats. He finished the year averaging only one strikeout for about every nine at-bats. Defensively, however, he did not enjoy the same success. Smith ended last season with 17 errors and a .899 fielding percentage. But some of his problems with the glove stemmed from the circumstances he was put under. "The biggest thing for us was that we really didn't know where Bryson was going to play," Robinson said. "We were moving him around an awful lot. We didn't really give him an opportunity to settle into a position." He saw time at second and third base and in the outfield at Young Harris. But since coming to Florida, Smith has worked solely at third, where he will replace Brandon McArthur. Smith takes 100 ground balls every day from UF assistant coach Brad Weitzel. "I've been working on it daily," Smith said. "I've seen dramatic improvement, so I feel a lot better and lot more comfortable now." It hasn't been easy, though. The coaches had to re-teach the fundamentals to Smith, who needed to sure up both his fielding and throwing. "I've been working on it daily. I've seen dramatic improvement, so I feel a lot better and lot more comfortable now." Bryson Smith UF junior third baseman "He comes out here on his off days and works on his own," O'Sullivan said. "He's taking it as a challenge, and he has improved an awful lot." The 6-foot-2 Smith was drafted in the 30th round of the MLB Draft by the Cleveland Indians but decided to transfer to Florida instead of making the jump to professional baseball for one huge reason. "He still has some things to prove," Robinson said. "I think his biggest goal is making an appearance in the College World Series, and that's one of the main reasons he chose UF." I, RETIREMENT?

16, ALLIGATOR U TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 16, 2010 Stats shown are from South Carolina and Xavier games It was hardly a good week for the Gators, as they lost both games to make their NCAA Tournament chances even more unclear, but Parsons continues to impress. The 6-foot-9 forward had his second-straight double-double, scoring 13 points and grabbing 11 boards against South Carolina, and came just two rebounds short of a third against Xavier on Saturday (15 points, eight Chandler Parsons rebounds). In addition to his improved all-around game, Parsons showed flashes of potential above the rim, throwing down nasty dunks at South Carolina and taking a crowdpleasing alley-oop (layup) from Erving Walker in the O'Connell Center. Stats: 28 points, 12-24 shooting, 19 rebounds, 7 assists Walker did his best to keep UF in the South Carolina game, dropping a teamhigh 20 points on 6-of-10 shooting, and when his shot faltered against Xavier, he dished out eight assists. The point guard isn't putting up shooting numbers like he was earlier in the conference season, but he led the team with 31 points on the week and at Erving Walker times seemed to be the team's only dependable free-throw shooter. The Gators will need Walker to perform more consistently to have a shot at making the Tournament, as his 3-of-l0 shooting Saturday made the team's offensive weaknesses seem even more glaring. Stats: 31 points, 9-20 shooting, 10-14 FTs, 11 assists, 5 rebounds I II 1111 'Il-I Parsons -9 Boynton -3 Tyus -8 Macklin -2 Walker -8 We thought about giving this spot to former Gator Jonathan Mitchell, whose 24 points and seven rebounds helped lead Rutgers to an upset of then-No. 8 Georgetown on Sunday -and not just because we love JMitch. Our voters were divided, but we agreed on one thing: Nobody aside from Parsons and Walker put together a particularly impressive week. So, we're giving the third-place spot to Tyus, whose 11 -point, Alex Tyus 15-rebound performance at South Carolina gave him the edge over freshman guard Kenny Boynton. Tyus was great at times against the Gamecocks, blocking three shots and shooting 5 of 7 from the field, but he barely showed up against Xavier. The junior power forward scored nine points on 4-of-13 shooting and only grabbed four rebounds against the Musketeers, and he recorded a team-high seven turnovers on the week. Stats: 20 points, 9-20 shooting, 19 rebounds, 4 blocks Adam Berry and Erica Ervin / Alligator Staff M IKE, from page 14 Is it the players? They are adults. Shouldn't they be capable of handling themselves? Is it society's fault for building them up to feel like they're above the law? Is it on the high school teachers, coaches or parents for letting them slide by? There are plenty of ways to look at it, but at a certain point, the blame game has to take a backseat to just fixing the problem. That point is now. Florida is quickly becoming a national punchline when it comes to arrests, and without Tebow around, the Band-Aid covering up UF's ugly scars has been peeled away. The program doesn't have a face right now, and if the Gators aren't careful, that face is going to be a mugshot. For me, the answer isn't to just kick these guys off the team. And Meyer doesn't believe in that either, unless the crime is particularly heinous. He learned that lesson a few years ago with cornerback Avery Atkins, who was booted out and later would up dead. Meyer feels a responsibility to try to give second chances and develop players into better people. He always gives the spiel about how his players are highquality humans and how his coaching staff is all about developing good people. Well, it's time to do that. The first thing to say is, "STOP HITTING WOMEN!" This really shouldn't be that hard, and it has become something of a trend lately. Also, there have to be some punishments other than making them run or kicking them off the team that could do the trick. Don't let these players think they can spend a night in the pokey, have super-lawyer Huntley Johnson fix the situation then get back on the field after some extra conditioning. From Day 1, they should know that if they can't behave, they can't play. You know how players lose playing time if they suck and can't make tackles? Make it clear that slapping, choking, shooting, stealing or fighting will be treated as more seriously. Until that's understood, Florida is going to keep heading toward being known as the new Thug U.
