State to consider allowing guns on campus


* THE BILL WOULD ALLOW ANYONE WITH A
CONCEALED WEAPONS PERMIT TO CARRY A
HANDGUN IN PLAIN SIGHT.

By SARAH POSER
Alligator Contributing Writer

As some lawmakers propose tighter gun legislation in
the wake of the Arizona shooting, one Florida state senator
is pushing for a bill to loosen gun control in the state as well
as the classroom.
Last month Sen. Greg Evers proposed an open carry gun
law under Senate Bill 234. The bill would allow anybody
with a concealed weapon permit to carry a handgun in plain
sight. Individuals with a concealed weapon permit would
also be able to practice open carry at college campuses, ca-
reer centers and private schools. The bill will take effect July


1 if it is approved.
UF Police Chief Linda Stump said the bill would cause a
"major shift" in the way UFPD conducts business.
For Stump, the bill presents a larger issue.
"This is an educational setting where
we hope people have rational, open dis-
course," Stump said. "We oppose legis-
lation that would put guns in that situa-
tion."
Brian Malte, director of federal mobili-
zation for the Brady Campaign to Prevent
Gun Violence, is working with students
Evers across the country to defeat legislature
such as Senate Bill 234.
Malte said he believes open carry could contribute to a
culture of fear and intimidation.
"More guns in the mix just create more of a problem for
public safety," he said. "This is no time to bring the Wild


West to Florida."
Sean Caranna, executive director of Florida Carry, a
movement supporting the right to bear arms, said people
are playing up the "Wild West" idea. In the 43 states that
allow some form of the bill, those scenarios just do not hap-
pen.
Caranna said the bill would deter crime and could pro-
tect students in the classroom.
"You go to college to prepare for the rest of your life,"
he said. "You shouldn't lose it because you couldn't defend
yourself."
Florida is one of seven states that do not currently allow
open carry gun rights.
Malte encourages everyone to reach out to legislators,
no matter his or her stance on the issue.
"The more outrage there is, the more the gun lobby starts
to retreat," he said. "Without a lot of protest, there is a chance
the gun lobby could shove it through."

keeps teens


on right path
By MORGAN WATKINS
Alligator Writer

Officer Doug Williams walks through the
grass to the tune of middle school boys shout-
ing.
Lined up in rows of seven or so, the boys
stand straight. A man stands a few paces away.
"Lock it up!" he says.
The boys echo his command, straightening
their arms and snapping their fists out in front
of them.
They begin to count.
"One, sir!" shouts the short boy, no more than
12, in the front, far left row. He snaps his fist to
his side.
"Two, sir!" yells the next in line.
"Three, sir!" "Four, sir!" "Five, sir!" "Six,
sir!"
Williams stands a few yards away, watching
the boys count off.
This is how employees take attendance here
in the middle school sector of the Reichert House
Youth Academy, a nonprofit organization sup-
ported by the Gainesville Police Department
and other local groups, that serves more than
130 at-risk boys in grades five through 12.

to patrol downtown Gainesville, has worked at

Armed robber hits banks in Austria using Obama mask as disguise


VIENNA - Say, isn't that the president
with a gun in his hand? Actually, no, but it
sure looks like it.
Austrian authorities are searching for a
bank robber who uses an unusual disguise:
He wears a Barack Obama mask during his
holdups.
Police say the man, nicknamed the
"Obama Robber" by local media, is wanted
for six heists since 2008.
The most recent took place Thursday in


the hamlet of Handenberg.
There the Obama-resembling suspect
made off with an undisclosed amount of
money after threatening bank employees
with a gun.
Austrian police official Markus Mitloeh-
ner said Friday that the man is thought to be
a local since he speaks the regional dialect -
with nary a trace of Obama's more professo-
rial accent.

UF, Kentucky blood drive starts today


By LINDSAY DECARLO
Alligator Contributing Writer

When the University of Kentucky
Wildcats come to the O'Connell Center,
they will not only be competing in bas-
ketball but also in a blood drive.
LifeSouth Community Blood Centers
of Gainesville will be kicking off its semi-
annual "What Colors Do You Bleed?"
blood drive Monday.
The competition is a tradition be-
tween the schools to see which can collect
the most donations for their local blood
banks in a week.
The winner will be announced fol-
lowing the : i,,I .- rl:. II game Feb. 5.
Kentucky has won the contest the
past two years.


According to Clay Gibbons, the com-
munity development coordinator for
LifeSouth, this event is the organization's
largest of the year.
After a holiday season shortage, these
extra donations will help fulfill an emer-
gency need.
"For me, donating could
potentially save a life."
Remy Kimes
Santa Fe student

LifeSouth anticipates more participa-
tion this year because a Champions Tro-
phy will be awarded for the first time. All
student organizations can compete in dif-
ferent divisions for this award.


"We're hoping people will bring out
their friends, not just to beat Kentucky
but help their organization win the tro-
phy," said Claire Lovell, a student intern
for LifeSouth.
Remy Kimes, a Santa Fe College stu-
dent, plans to participate in the drive be-
cause he knows his O-negative blood is
desperately needed, he said.
"For me, donating could potentially
save a life," he said. "That's all the moti-
vation I need to go out and give blood."
Bloodmobiles will be at the Hub,
Gator Corner Dining Center, Broward
Dining Center and on Turlington Plaza
between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday
through Friday. Donations will also be
accepted at LifeSouth donor centers and
Gainesville Health & Fitness centers.


Showcase attracts employers who want to hire


Students scared of the thinning job mar-
ket will be relieved to hear that this week's
UF Career Showcase is expected to bring as
many employers as last spring to campus.
About 175 employers are split between
Tuesday and Wednesday. More than 10
of those employers are newcomers to the
showcase.
Tuesday is the nontechnical day, when
employers search for candidates in fields such
as accounting, communications, health care,
sales and retail. On Wednesday, employers
look for candidates in the computer science,


construction, engineering and scientific
research fields.
Wayne Wallace, director of UF's Career
Resource Center, said that although the
economy is at a low point, many employers
still need workers.
"The companies that come today are
doing well," Wallace said. "They are aggres-
sively looking for employees."
Angel Iverson, the assistant director for
career events, said students should come
prepared and know what companies they
are interested in. They should also be ready

Concert helps


fund clinic

By REBECCA DANTA
Alligator Contributing Writer

In an effort to raise support for a medical
clinic in Tanzania, the faith-based student or-
ganization Hope Global Mission held a concert
Friday at the Baptist Collegiate Ministry.
A Night for HOPE featured musicians,
speakers and students who had been to the clin-
ic. The performers shared their personal experi-
ences through songs.
Admission was $5 or the donation of a used
textbook, which Hope will re-sell online.
Paul Emery, executive director of U.S. Cen-
ter for World Mission in Gainesville, spoke from
firsthand experience about the struggles chil-
dren face in Africa.
On "These kids are going to be
Campus lucky if they get to sixth grade,"
he said.
The event raised $440 for
Hope.
Kelley Williams, Hopes treasurer, estimates
the group will raise between $700 and $800
through its online textbook sales.
Williams said the group has been so suc-
cessful in its efforts, raising $4,970.80 in the past
year, that it now is expanding its partnerships.
"The clinic was telling us we were almost
overwhelming them with funds," Williams
said. "They didn't have enough stuff to spend
the money on, so they told us to consider look-
ing into new partnerships."

ONLINE GAMING

Counseling center to offer support for Web addicts


By AMANDA EATMAN
Alligator Contributing Writer

Tyler Reed, coordinator of UF's colle-
giate-league "StarCraft II" team, can play
nonstop, skip meals and justify spending
seven to eight hours on the computer a day.
"If I wasn't doing this, I would probably
be watching television or raging," Reed said,
"and neither are preferable."
Reed said he believes Internet gaming
like this shares symptoms of addiction.
"You will skip meals," he said, "especial-
ly when you aren't living at home, and your
parents don't bug you to go eat."
The Counseling and Wellness Center at
UF will offer a new group for students who
consider themselves dependent on comput-


er games, video games and the Internet.
The group, called Unplug Yourself from
the Virtual World, is free for students and
will meet every Wednesday from 3 p.m. to
4:30 p.m. starting the first week in February.
Fred Shueh facilitates the group as a psy-
.:1-,..1.. � intern at the Counseling and Well-
ness Center. He said the group aims to pro-
vide a safe place to explore issues regarding
Internet use.
Shueh said group therapy helps par-
ticipants in several ways. They realize they
aren't the only ones dealing with the prob-
lem. They can hear other students' stories
about how they struggle and how different
people deal with their problems in different
ways. Finally, group therapy helps partici-
pants become motivated to make changes


in their lives with the support from group
members.

"If I wasn't doing this, I would prob-
ably be watching television or rag-
ing, and neither are preferable."
Tyler Reed
coordinator of UF's collegiate-league
"StarCraft II1" team


Shueh said the group is set to be inclusive
and welcomes all Internet users, including
those who chat, shop, use Facebook, play
games and more.
Dr. Timothy Huckaby, physician and
clinical assistant professor in psychiatry and


addiction medicine at the Florida Recovery
Center, said Internet dependency is consid-
ered a process addiction, which is an addic-
tion to an activity like eating or gambling.
Addictions can interfere with a person's
social life, family, work and school, Hucka-
by said. People use the Internet as a way to
escape their problems and can lose control.
Shueh said many people won't admit
they have a problem with computer use.
"I didn't make this group to merely fo-
cus on fixing Internet dependence but to
help students understand what is going on
and to help them balance their life and their
computer and Internet use," he said.
For more information about the group
Unplug Yourself from the Virtual World,

The Reichert House offers guidance, academic advising to at-risk boys


REICHERT, from page 1

Reichert House for five years. He
was i .1 i, 11I an intervention spe-
cialist who counseled the kids and
is now the program's operations
director.
He offers advice and help to all
the boys at Reichert House, but for
some he becomes a close mentor. He
tells them when they're messing up
in school, and he helps them work
through their problems.
If a boy needs to get out of the
house to clear his mind, Williams
might take him fishing on a week-
end. Sometimes, the best thing he
can do for a boy is to call him out on
his mistakes and talk with his par-
ents about how to help.
Najuan Williams, a 19-year-old
alumnus of the program who still
volunteers there, received support
from Officer Williams that helped
him control his anger. Shorter than
many boys, Najuan would often
lash out when someone tried to
mess with him.
To help him release his anger
without slugging an-
other kid, the older
Local Williams had him lift
News weights or practice
boxing. This helped
Najuan work out his emotions
physically without pressing his fist
to another person's face.
C ', 1, 1 ,: II t, .1 1:. , - , 1 .I . ,_1 w ith
the Florida Department of Juvenile
Justice, Reichert House now serves
at-risk boys in general. A boy who
qualifies for the program can have a
variety of risk factors, from living in
a single-parent home to getting poor
grades.
Reichert House works with mul-
tiple organizations to develop and
maintain its programs, including
the city of Gainesville and UE It is
funded by donations and local and
state money, according to the Re-
ichert House website. Businesses
can also contribute by becoming site
sponsors that receive recognition for
their support.
The after-school program runs
Monday through Thursday. The
middle school section focuses more
heavily on discipline and preparing
them for high school, while the high
school portion encourages personal
responsibility and free-thinking.
Reichert House also has a summer
program that runs all day on week-
days.


During the school year, the boys
are picked up from their schools and
brought to Reichert House. The pro-
gram provides academic advising,
counseling, paramilitary exercises
and other services, Williams said.
Sherry Estes, assistant principal
of student services at Eastside High
School, provides academic help for
the high school sector along with
student volunteers from UF and
Santa Fe College.
Estes has been involved with
Reichert House for three years. She
teaches math, advises students on
academics and encourages them to
study for the ACT and SAT.
In some ways, she and the other
adults in the program are surrogate
parents for the boys. They help them
make decisions and don't sugarcoat
the truth.
As she shuffles papers on a desk
in a Reichert House office, a boy in
orange-and-black pants walks in the
door to ask her about logging onto
the ACT website.
As she answers his questions,
another boy leans against the door
frame.
"I got a 13," he says of his ACT
score.


Estes looks over at him sternly.
"You're going to take it again," she
says.
The boy mumbles and looks
down, frowning.
"Hey. Not an option. OK?" Estes
says.
No answer.
"Yes, Ms. Estes," she answers for
him.
The boy looks up. Not an op-
tion.
In addition to academics, Reich-
ert House boys meet with interven-
tion specialists who provide coun-
seling and representatives from local
organizations that teach them about
health, finances and other subjects,
Williams said. They also have time
for recreation and get a meal before
they are taken home in the evening.
The program meets the individ-
ual needs of each child and keeps
them off the street during prime
crime hours. In the last four years,
100 percent of the program's senior
classes have graduated from high
school, Williams said. While some
do end up in jail, most go on to col-
lege or junior college.
At Reichert House, Williams is
the "silent hammer," the fail-safe,


the last line of defense. If a boy gets
out of control, Williams steps in to
handle the situation, whether that
means calming the boy down, dis-
ciplining him or both.
On the lawn in front of the mid-
dle school phase of Reichert House,
Williams talks with a young boy and
his mom. The boy, Arkeem Bennett,
has been getting poor grades.
Williams tells him he needs to
do something proactive instead of
mouthing off.
"Grades man, first and fore-
most," Williams tells him, placing a
hand on his shoulder. "Everything
else will take care of itself."
Arkeem, wearing a red T-shirt
and carrying a backpack, looks at
the ground.
"If you're going to be a smart al-
eck, be one all the way and in there,
too," Williams says, tapping the
textbook in the boy's arms.
It's time for Arkeem and his
mother to head home, so Williams
gives his shoulder a squeeze and
smiles.
Arkeem's mom turns to leave
with her son but looks back at Wil-
hams. "Thanks, sugar."
Williams is no stranger to what


Max Reed/Alligator Staff
Officer Doug Williams poses in front of a Reichert House sign. He serves as a mentor for many of the
program's students on a daily basis.


the boys of Reichert House are go-
ing through in their lives. He may
be a police officer, but he's also a
Gainesville native with a rough past.
He can relate to these boys because
he's been through it all himself.
Growing up in a single-parent
home like many of the Reichert
House boys, he did poorly in school
and was often just seeking attention
from anyone who would notice.
By 14, he had been shot and
stabbed. He watched his best friend
die from a gunshot wound right
in front of him. When a boy like
16-year-old James Nixon, who was
previously involved in gangs, joins
the program, Williams understands
the pressures he faces because he
faced them, too.
"I don't want them to go through
what I went through," Williams
said. "If I reach one, I've done some-
thing. That's one less I have to wor-
ry about being a tax-taker instead of
a taxpayer."
By working with the boys on
a daily basis, Williams hopes to
change their views of police officers.
Many grow up seeing cops as the
enemy, often because their parents
view law enforcement that way.
He wants them to see him, as well
as other officers, as people who can
help rather than hurt.
If a Reichert House boy runs
into trouble, other officers know to
call Williams to come work things
out as long as the offense doesn't
require the boy's arrest. He isn't
there to punish the children but to
discipline them when necessary and
help them handle the daily trials of
home, school and tough neighbor-
hoods.
For James, Reichert House be-
came a place to learn leadership
skills and to help others. When
James first joined the program, he
was still in the mindset of being a
"knucklehead" and didn't want to
listen.
But as he became familiar with
the children and adults involved
in the program, he realized that he
could embrace Reichert House and
learn how to be successful in life, or
he could just "come out dumb." He
decided to be successful.
James knows that when he needs
Williams, he can call, and Williams
will be there. In return, James will
do any job Williams asks of him
at Reichert House. They help each
other.

Media center book, CD

sale raises $1,000


* BOOKS AND CDS COST $1 EACH.
By MEREDITH RUTLAND
Alligator Writer
Folk CDs and books about censorship and
birth control stacked the shelves at the Civic
Media Center sale Saturday.
Customers looked through about 1,500
folk, acoustic and rock CDs, all $1 each.
Any books the library had duplicates of
were on sale too. About 200 books ranging
from "Young Radicals: Notes on Commit-
ted Youth" to "Exploring Human Sexuality:
Making Healthy Decisions" to "Feng Shul for
Apartment Living" were also $1 each.
James Schmidt, a store coordinator, said the
sale brought in about $1,000.


"That's huge for the CMC," he said.
He said it has been tough for the library the
past two years, but it's staying afloat.
"I think it's a crying shame when we lose
those businesses," Schmidt said, "because
they are the bedrock of the culture."
As customers flipped through the boxes of
CDs, Schmidt explained the loss behind the li-
brary's gain. A "much-loved" folk and acous-
tic radio show was canceled by WUFT, so the
disc jockey donated about 1,000 CDs that she
used to run her show to the library.
Randy Reid, the county manager for the
Alachua County Commission, bought about
25 CDs from the sale, taking a sampling of
genres from the former show. He said he
didn't know all the artists he was buying, but,
for $1 per CD, the price couldn't be better.
"I can risk a dollar just to try it," he said.

Editorial

Hail to the Tweet

Social media connects

public to White House
We got a little preview of the State of the Union
address this weekend, but for now we're more
intrigued that the White House is embracing
technology in the lead-up to the speech Tuesday night.
Concerned Americans can pose their burning questions
to President Obama via Facebook, YouTube and Twitter.
Given that the president owes much of his 2008 cam-
paign success to social media, his effort to make citizens
feel more involved via the Internet comes as no surprise.
On one hand, we are all for broadening the horizons of
political interactions, allowing voters to come face-to-face
with their leaders and express themselves.
The nation stands on the cusp of a new era when nearly
anyone, regardless of age, income or location, can ques-
tion the people who are supposed to look out for their best
interests. We understand there will be a vetting system
to weed out people without legitimate questions and to
throw the president some soft ones. But that's how most
political discussions occur now.
On the other hand, we have to wonder how someone
could pose a pertinent and important question that's still
specific enough to elicit a thoughtful response in only 140
characters.
All problems aside, anything that gets people thinking
about what our elected officials are doing and saying con-
tributes to the good of our society.



School on Crutches


Maybe a little strug-
gling does the
mind good.
Students remember
material better when they
take tests on it rather than
merely studying it, accord-
ing to new research in the
journal Science. We're used
to studying textbooks and
reviewing notes until our
eyes beg for mercy, so this
is a breakthrough.
The study, which evalu-
ated how much students
retained about a passage a
week after reading it, dis-
misses the idea that popu-
lar studying methods such
as creating diagrams of in-
formation make informa-
tion easier to remember.
Taking a test - even a
practice test - isolates stu-
dents from crutches such as
textbooks and forces them
to rely on memory. So an
exam doesn't just force stu-
dents to regurgitate what


they've learned; it embeds
the information deeper into
memory.
Of course, this is just one
study. The results make
sense, though, because stu-
dents generally prepare for
important exams such as
the SAT, LSAT or just the
Microeconomics final in the
same way: practicing with
old tests. This research sug-
gests taking exams not only
gives us experience with
the specific test's format
but also helps to store the
information we know.
The technique comes
with a downside, however.
Students feel less confident
in their memory while test-
ing and may be tempted to
study with the book con-
stantly beside them.
With that in mind, for
our next exam, we'll con-
sider giving the crutches a
break to see if we can stand
our own.

Parties overlook immigration solution


" G ive [us] your tired, your poor, your hud-
dled masses yearning to breathe free." For
VG i more than a century, these words have been
America's call to the world, and the world has answered
eagerly.
Unfortunately, those on the left have perverted these
same words during today's debate over immigration
reform. They recklessly wield them in support of abso-
lute amnesty for illegal immigrants and deceptively de-
nounce conservatives as being in favor of detention and
deportation of all those here illegally. C': .....i. neither
of these solutions embodies the true meaning or spirit of
Emma Lazarus' powerful words.
But if neither approach works, how can we fix the
problem of illegal immigration?
It's simple. We can confront it with common sense and
a basic understanding of the law of supply and demand.
In order to reform the immigration system, decrease
the number of illegal aliens and increase overall Ameri-
can prosperity, the federal government must tighten bor-
der security, streamline the legal immigration process, in-
crease the number of immigrants legally allowed into the
country, create a guest worker program and place those
who are here illegally in line with everyone else while
holding them responsible for any fines or back taxes they
might owe.
If lawmakers follow these five simple policy prescrip-
tions, they will be well on their way to solving a pressing
problem facing our nation.
Unfortunately, many lawmakers on the left refuse to
realistically confront this problem. Rather, they push for
amnesty, even limited amnesty, without any of the ad-
ditional remedies.
Limited amnesty was tried in 1986 and failed. In fact,


it only encouraged more illegal im-
migration in the -II.. - i, years.
The same would be true today,
and passage of the DREAM Act
would surely create a nightmare
along America's borders.
Zack Smith It is important to remember,
letters@alligator.org however, that even though those
who are in the country illegally
broke the law to get here, most did so for good reasons.
They were pursuing the American dream of a better
life for themselves and their families. While we cannot
reward their illegal activity, we must take this as a clear
sign that there is a demand for their services as well as
an ample supply of immigrants willing to meet this de-
mand.
If the immigration process is streamlined and the
number of immigrants legally allowed into the country
is increased, most who are pursuing work would follow
this path. Not only would this reduce strain on the bor-
der, but it would allow more resources to be devoted to
preventing those who truly wish to harm America from
coming into the country.
Immigration reform is a necessity.
We are a nation of immigrants and should welcome
with open arms any who wish to come here to pursue the
American dream. Comprehensive reform would create
opportunities for millions of citizens and immigrants to
have better lives for themselves and for their families.
This is the hope that America provides to millions, and
what could be more American than making this hope a
reality for millions more?

Letters to the Editor
Taxi sting shows benefits of UF Student Government
I was extremely uplifted to read about Student Gov-
ernment and Ben Meyer's recent role in investigating taxi
price gouging.
I, too, have been a victim of overpriced taxis while at-
tempting to get home safely at night.
Like with other victims, my taxi driver did not run his
meter, nor was the flat rate I was later charged displayed
on the cab.
My ride cost a whopping $35, far more than I had spent
while out that night.
This is a confusing situation for students to be in, par-
ticularly when trying to get home late at night.
I had never taken a cab ride until arriving in Gainesville
and thus knew nothing about the way they charge.
Without prior knowledge, I was unable to stand up to
the taxi driver.
I believe this is the same situation most students find
themselves in. They are simply glad to arrive home safely,
so they do not argue with the overcharging.
It appears that most cab drivers understand the situa-
tion that students are in and have unfairly taken advan-
tage of it.
Thankfully, we are blessed to have such an active stu-
dent government and student leaders, like Ben Meyers,
who take matters into their own hands. He took it upon
himself to spend a night riding in taxis in order to inves-
tigate.
That is the kind of leader students at UF need - one
who willingly will do whatever possible to ensure the
safety and fair treatment of students.

Columnist fails to examine valid opposing opinions
I'm guessing that Bob Minchin is one of those closed-
minded individuals who thinks "The C..il:.-, t Report" is
conservative.
You are correct on the "unpopularity of liberal ideolo-
gy" in the media, though. I mean who watches ABC, NBC,
CBS or CNN? Or reads the silly New York Times?
However, with my hypothesis regarding your igno-
rance of "The Colbert Report" message, sarcasm may
have been a poor choice here.
I'm just saying to open your mind up a little bit and
think about why the Fairness Doctrine might be a good
idea.
A persuasive paper should concede oppos-
ing views and argue them down, something you
completely ignored in your opinion article.
One-sided thinking and reporting will not get us any-
where.

Guest column

Liberalism stands test of time in US


Regarding Bob Minchin's
Friday column, a few
things need to be cleared
up.
For the record, talk of reinstat-
ing the Fairness Doctrine was
advanced by one Democratic
congressman, not the entire par-
ty, nor any other broad group of
liberals.
No piece of legislation has
been drafted, either.
Additionally, President
Obama and representatives for
his administration have repeat-
edly made clear their belief that
the Fairness Doctrine should not
be reinstated.
But those facts didn't really
matter to Minchin, who capi-
talized on typical conservative
paranoia about a vast mass me-
dia conspiracy as a rhetorical ve-
hicle to drive his column's side
argument that the Tuscon Trag-
edy was - wait for it - caused
by liberals.


Matthew Christ N e v e r
Speaking Out mind that
the shooter's
reading list
featured a blatant anti-govern-
ment strain.
Never mind the shooter's
YouTube videos about illegal cur-
rency are essentially a stripped-
down version of a typical Glenn
Beck program.
Never mind that most of our
country's leaders have rightly
declared that the shooter wasn't
exactly a crazy far leftist or a cra-
zy Tea Partier but was rather just
crazy.
As in politically deranged.
Further, to address Minchin's
contention that "liberalism can-
not survive in the arena of ideas,"
which, let's face it, is like calling
your momma fat in the world of
politics, I'd like to remind him
that it has been the progressives
from both parties that have ad-
vanced the best ideas of the past


few generations.
Be it women's suffrage, civil
rights, clean water standards,
higher education standards, reg-
ulations to ensure fairness and
equity in the marketplace or so-
cial safety nets that have lifted
millions out of poverty and into
the middle class, liberal ideas
have fared pretty well in every
intellectual arena that they've
been tested.
The more astute readers out
there might notice that Repub-
licans advanced some of these
ideas.
Unfortunately, it seems that
intellectuals are increasingly be-
ing turned away from the GOP.
But rest assured, they're al-
ways welcomed at a gathering of
the UF College Democrats.
Matthew Christ is a third -year
advertising and political science
major. He is also the vice president
of community outreach for the UF
College Democrats.


Bob Minchin claims "liberalism is an emotive
ideology. By nature, it relies more on feelings
than intellect."
Then I guess conservative "intellects" Glenn
Beck and Rush Limbaugh are actually liberals in
disguise.
Here are a few in a long lists of quotes that prove
they rely on emotions rather than rational thinking:
"We're not sexists, we're chauvinist -we're male
chauvinist pigs, and we're happy to be because we
think that men were destined to be. We think that's
what women want."
"I could give a flying crap about the political pro-
cess.... We're an entertainment company."
"Every night I get down on my knees and pray
that Dennis Kucinich will burst into flames."
Unfortunately for Minchin's logic, conservative
radio hosts are no intellectuals and neither are their
liberal counterparts.
If you're going to make such an argument, you
have to support it with facts, not just a petty, one-
sided political agenda.
Minchin also claims that conservatism is win-
ning because people are voting some Democrats out
of office.
Then what happened in 2006?
What happened in 2008?
Anyone who has the most basic education about


Nicholas Sayaverda American politics knows
Speaking Out well that there are cycles.
Some cycles benefit
the Democrats, and some
benefit Conservatives.
There will always be both a conservative and a
liberal base, but the truth is most Americans fall in
the middle and despise these extremes.
They despise liberalism just as much as conser-
vatism.
And just for the record, Mr. Minchin, without
some liberal ideas, we would not have Social Secu-
rity or Medicare.
Just ask a bunch of 70-year-old Tea Party mem-
bers to end their Social Security and Medicare ben-
efits and see their reactions.
In all fairness, without conservatism perhaps our
income tax rates would be what they were under
presidents of the 1960s or 1970s (70 to 90 percent for
the highest brackets).
I guess what I'm trying to prove is that our coun-
try is neither conservative nor liberal but a constant
political mix, where different ideas from different
ideologies are blended to form this beautiful coun-
try that - with all its problems - I dearly love and
adore.

Field set for City Commission election


ALLIGATOR STAFF REPORT

While the weather continues to
waver between chilly and cold, the
race for District 3 City Commission
is heating up as the candidates pre-
pare to make their push toward
City Hall.
The race for the commission
seat is chock-full of candidates,
each with varying backgrounds
and political experiences. For the
next month and a half, they will
be making their case to voters as
to why they are qualified to serve
Gainesville.
The election, which will be
March 15, will be a five-way con-
test among Susan Bottcher, Ozzy
Angulo, Jimmy Harnsberger, Ra-
mon Trujillo and Rob Zeller.
Bottcher, who graduated from
UF with a degree in anthropol-
ogy in 1979, said she decided to
run because she saw certain politi-
cal movements, such as the "Tea-
publicans," start to trickle into
Gainesville. She said she doesn't
want those viewpoints to choke
the spirit of the city.
"It's all very negative. It's not
solution-based," she said. "They're
backward-looking. The traditional
character of Gainesville has been
forward-looking."
After graduating from college,
Bottcher, 53, worked for Nation-
wide Insurance as a claims writer
for about 10 years. Then, after mar-
rying her husband, Del, she chose
to be a stay-at-home mom.
She became involved with Lit-
tlewood Elementary School's PTA
and then joined the East Gainesville
Development Task Force. Before
long, she was president of a non-
profit organization dedicated to
bringing a children museum to
Gainesville.
She'd volunteered in about
eight educational and political or-


ganizations before she volunteered
with the Alachua County Demo-
cratic Executive Committee during
the 2004 election.
Bottcher said the extent of her
political involvement previously
had been yelling at the TV during
newscasts. She quickly learned the
ins and outs of campaign planning,
she said.
"That was kind of my political
education," she said.
Angulo, 30, is no stranger to po-
litical campaigns. Last year, he ran
for city mayor, finishing fifth in a
field of five.
While some may see Angulo's
performance as discouraging, he
saw it as a learning experience.
"I've learned that solutions to
a lot of the challenges that we face
are within the community and in
our city," Angulo said. "The per-
ception that it's difficult for certain
businesses to get established is ac-
tually a reality."
Angulo has assembled a staff to
assist him with his campaign.
"He likes to pick local busi-
nesses; he likes to have a feel of
what Gainesville is," said David
Arreola, the media coordinator for
Angulo's campaign. "He's very
committed and has very strong
convictions. From what I've seen,
we have very intelligent staff
members and we're going to make
sure the right man gets elected to
the chair."
In order to bolster his political
presence, Angulo, a former U.S.
Marine and a current theater stu-
dent at Santa Fe College, is offering
to do chores for Gainesville resi-
dents for political donations.
"I'm willing to work for cam-
paign donations because that is
what I intend to do as a commis-
sioner - work," Angulo said.
While Angulo is using mediums
such as Craigslist to get his name


out there, Harnsberger, 40, is tak-
ing a more "super" route. Across
town, signs line yards that portray
Harnsberger ripping his T-shirt to
reveal a superhero-like "J" written
underneath. The slogan: "We need
Jimmy in the city."
"I'm running now because I
think we've got some very serious
issues before the commission," he
said. "And I think we need a fresh
perspective on how to tackle those
problems."
Harnsberger, who is an assistant
professor in the linguistics depart-
ment at UF, said he first became
involved in politics when he and
other residents in his neighbor-
hood worked with the City Com-
mission to close down a nearby
drug house.

"I'm running now because
I think we've got some very
serious issues before the
commission."
Jimmy Harnsberger
City Commission candidate

From there, he quickly became
involved in other community ef-
forts and became president of the
University Park Neighborhood
Association in 2006.
As the city faces budgetary
problems and a tough economy,
Harnsberger believes the answer
isn't more taxes but less spending.
The city government, he believes,
should focus on tightening its op-
eration while still providing neces-
sary public services, he said.
Harnsberger is also concerned
with ensuring the city government
supports urban neighborhoods
and business districts.
"It's all connected," he said. "If
we let our neighborhoods decline,
the businesses don't have custom-


ers [and] they close. Schools, busi-
nesses, neighborhoods - they all
have to be healthy."
For Trujillo, 44, the election rep-
resents an opportunity to provide
a counterbalance to the "liberal
establishment," which he believes
has taken over the City Commis-
sion.
Currently unemployed and liv-
ing on disability insurance, Tru-
jillo has previously worked in a
ministry and with various market-
ing and advertising jobs in South
Florida.
He said he wants to represent
the people of Gainesville "on a
values perspective." He said he
supports innovatedd projects" and
stands against Amendment 1, the
equality for employment and anti-
discriminatory law put in place in
2008 that gave protection to trans-
gender, gay and lesbian people in
Gainesville.
He lists two former presidents
as his political idols: Abraham Lin-
coln and Ronald Reagan.
"They're men of character," he
said.
While he may be considered a
political neophyte, Rob Zeller is
no stranger to Gainesville. Having
received his undergraduate degree
in chemical engineering and MBA
from UF, Zeller, 39, owns Grog
House, Gator City Sports Grill,
Copper Monkey and :08 Seconds.
With his background in busi-
ness, Zeller said he wants to treat
city government like a business
while trying to lower regulation
and going after what he sees as ex-
cessive fees.
In terms of finances raised,
Zeller leads the pack with $11,
996.56. Bottcher is right behind him
with $8,490, followed by Harns-
berger at $1,395 and Angulo at
$618.50. Currently, Trujillo shows
no finances being raised.

UF dominates all phases vs. Hogs


Offense bounces back in win


By GREG LUCA
Alligator Staff Writer
gluca@alligatororg

After weeks of playing well
in only one aspect of the game
at a time, the Gators finally put
together a complete performance
Saturday night.
Florida (15-4, 4-1 Southeastern
Conference) had what may have
been its best contest of the year
as it shot 50 percent and kept
Arkansas (12-6, 2-3 SEC) under
wraps, notching a 75-43 blowout
victory in the O'Connell Center.
"We put it all together," se-
nior Chandler Parsons said. "We
played well on offense, we exe-
cuted and we played very unself-
ish. And on the defensive end we
also locked up."
Saturday's performance served
as a microcosm of what many be-
lieved this Florida team would be
coming in to the season.
UF has played games in which
it showed flashes on either of-
fense or defense, but Saturday it
proved what it is capable of when
it does both for 40 minutes.
"That was my focus com-
ing into this game: trying to
shut (Clarke) down. He's a
great player, great shooter,
and I just wanted to do my
best to disrupt anything he
had going on."
Kenny Boynton
UF sophomore guard

"I thought from start to finish
it was a real complete game for
us," coach Billy Donovan said.
Coming off a putrid offensive
performance against Auburn in
which they shot just 28.3 percent
in a 45-40 win, the Gators had one
of their strongest scoring outputs
of the year.
While the offense was entirely
different from the way it played
at Auburn, the defense looked
like the same unit that held the
Tigers to their lowest point total
in the shot clock era, this time
limiting Arkansas to just 29.4


percent shooting.
"Everyone put that game
Thursday behind us, and we re-
ally just wanted to come out and
play defense," sophomore guard
Kenny Boynton said.
Boynton was UF's best de-
fender, as he played a major role
in shutting out junior guard Rot-
nei Clarke, who came into the
game averaging a team-high 13.5
points per contest.
Clarke mustered just three
shot attempts for the game, in-
cluding two air balls from three-
point range.
"That was my focus coming
into this game: trying to shut him
down," Boynton said. "He's a


great player, great shooter, and I
just wanted to do my best to dis-
rupt anything he had going on."
Although Boynton's focus was
on defense, he also played a ma-
jor role in an offense that needed
less than 19 minutes to make as
many field goals (15) as it did in
the entirety of Thursday's game.
UF established an interior
presence in the early going to
open up the outside, and Boyn-
ton responded by hitting a trio of
shots from beyond the arc in the
first 20 minutes.
Florida opened the Auburn
game just 3 for 24 from long dis-
tance, but Boynton never shied
away from an open three, con-
necting on four of his seven

Gators' inconsistency


defies explanations

n a moment of brutal honesty, Florida -: :-.I r l: ,II coach
Billy Donovan hopefully put an end to all the specula-
tion, all the guessing games and all the "if only" think-
ing.
When asked if his team was "mystifying" to him, Don-
ovan quickly answered, "Yes."
"Don't fall in love," he added, smiling, after a perfor-
mance worth falling for. The Gators dismantled Arkansas
r75-43 on Saturday, something they
needed in light of the borderline-
humiliating 45-40 win at Auburn on
Thursday.
Perhaps the only consistent as-
pect of Florida's season has been its
Adam Berry inconsistency, and that has never
Bad News Berry been more clear than it was in the
aberry@allgator org Thursday-Saturday Southeastern
Twitter @adamdberry Conference swing.
The Gators were horrid offensive-
ly at Auburn, scoring the fewest points in the Donovan
era, and they were unexpectedly dominant in all phases
Saturday against Arkansas.
"It shows us what type of team and upside we have
if we just keep being focused and coming out, executing
our game plan," sophomore guard Kenny Boynton said.

LSU pushes Florida's


losing streak to four


By MATT WATTS
Alligator Writer

Before Sunday's game, LSU
coach Van Chancellor said he
was worried by how hard the
Gators play.
But the trademark toughness
coach Amanda Butler demands
from her team was absent until
late in a 72-58 shellacking in Ba-
ton Rouge, La., against the Ti-
gers.
Already on a three-game
snide, Florida held a lead for
only 13 seconds, and Butler said
the team showed a "complete
lack of readiness" in the loss.
"We've been through a lot
emotionally in the past week,"
Butler said afterward in a radio
interview. "But that's life. And
that's life in the [Southeastern


Conference]."
Going on the road to face the
SEC leader in scoring defense
proved to be too large a task.
The Gators' offense was hand-
icapped all night by the Tigers,
who routinely forced Florida (12-
9, 2-5 SEC) out
of its element
into long pos-
sessions and
half-court sets.
UF, a team
that likes to run
the floor and
Butler set up offense
with aggres-
sive defense, had zero fast-break
points and took multiple bad
shots as the shot clock expired.
Coupled with the poor of-

fensive showing, Butler said the
Gators also showed lackluster ef-
fort on the other end of the court.
"We got crushed on the boards


today and really just had very little
pride in our defense," Butler said.
From the opening minutes,
Florida allowed open looks off
LSU ball screens.

game-high 18 points, and Taylor
Turnbow knocked down wide-
open jumpers to give LSU an im-
mediate 5-0 lead. The Tigers took
advantage of similar easy oppor-
tunities all afternoon, shooting a
50.9 percentage.
Sunday is only the second time
all season Florida has allowed an
opponent to shoot 50 percent from
the floor. Auburn made exactly
half of its shots in a 17-point vic-
tory over UF on Jan. 6.
Despite LSU's hot hand, Flori-
da still had its chances.
Jordan Jones (15 points, team
high) and Lanita Bartley hit late
threes to cut the Tigers' halftime
lead to eight. LSU went more than
four minutes without a field goal.
But the Gators scored just five
points in the first 12 minutes of the
second half and the Tigers extend-
ed their lead to 18 points.
Florida led a small charge to
cut the lead to single digits with
just over two minutes left to play,
but LaSondra Barrett answered
with three of her 14 points to put
the game away.
"We're just having crucial
breakdowns at crucial times,"
Butler said, referring to a missed
rebound opportunity that led to
a Kentucky three. "When you're
playing (like that) on the road,
then you're going to get beat by
double-digits by good teams."
UF shot 41.5 percent, inflated
by a 48-percent first half, and at-
tempted 19 shots from beyond the
arc for only the fifth time this sea-
son.
Butler, reeling after four straight
losses, was asked afterward if she
thought the small comeback late in
the game was a positive the team
could use going forward.
"That's what you're supposed
to do," she said. "That's not some-
thing you should get a medal for.
You're supposed to keep fight-
ing."

high 20 points.
"He's already done with
Thursday," Parsons said. "That's
over with so he moved on. He's
a scorer, he's going to shoot the
ball no matter if he goes 0 for 9
or 9 for 9."
Rather than playing a zone
scheme like the
*one Auburn
employed to
great success,
Basketball the Razor-
backs opted to
stay in a man-
to-man defense for most of the
contest.
This allowed the Gators to
make easy post feeds and attack
early, as they attempted just five
threes in the first half.
Center Vernon Macklin and
forward Alex Tyus combined to
score the team's first 12 points.
The frontcourt duo finished the
game with 13 points apiece.

ADAM, from page 13

"If we have more games like that, the same result will
come.
Entering the weekend, fans had all but given up on see-
ing those results. This morning, hope once again springs
eternal.
It's almost become unfair to say it's been a "rollercoast-
er ride" for the Gators the last two years - at least it's
possible to see what's next on a rollercoaster. This team,
on the other hand, is completely unpredictable.
"They are in a lot of ways," Donovan said. "I love coach-
ing them, and they're great kids, and they work hard, and
there are so many elements of them that I enjoy."
There have been innumerable complaints, plenty of
wishful thinking and certainly no shortage of quick-fix
suggestions regarding what would turn this squad into
the preseason top-10 team it was predicted to be.
It was said the Gators had to fix their shooting to win
games. Auburn is a bad team, but Florida still pulled off a
win despite a historically bad shooting night.
The common consensus before that was UF had to play
great defense or it wouldn't stand a chance against qual-
ity teams. Almost on cue, Ole Miss and Tennessee each
scored more than 70 points and lost to the Gators.
I've even played the "what if" game as well. Three
weeks ago, I wrote that Chandler Parsons' offensive suc-
cess was necessary for the Gators to play up to their po-
tential.
Parsons scored five points Saturday night. He took only
six shots in 30 minutes. But he was involved everywhere
else on the floor, grabbing a career-best 15 rebounds and
leading the team with five assists.
Anything else? Free throws? Turnovers? Offensive re-
bounding? Sound familiar?
Despite everyone's best attempts to find a quick fix,
there is none. UF will play above its potential (see: Kansas
State, Xavier, Rhode Island, Tennessee, Arkansas), and
it will play far below it (see: Jacksonville, UCF), with no
rhyme or reason why either happens when it does.
To his credit, Donovan has avoided putting the blame
on his team for its inconsistency. Instead, he often speaks
about his players' need to worry about the things they
can control.
Entering every game not knowing whether the Gators
will play that way, however, has left Donovan - and any-
one who follows the team - mystified.

Gators post eight season-best times in loss to Tigers


* UF'S MEN'S AND WOMEN'S TEAMS
FELL TO AUBURN ON THE ROAD.

By JOHN BOOTHE
Alligator Writer

Florida couldn't spoil Auburn's Senior
Day celebration on Friday afternoon, even
after notching a season-high 24 NCAA quali-
fying times and swimming one of their fast-
est meets of the year.
Despite trailing in both men's and wom-
en's events for most of the meet, losing by a
combined 64 points, the Gators still received
the same solid output from the top two
swimmers on each team.
For the No. 5 men, senior duo Conor
Dwyer and Brett Fraser combined for seven
NCAA cuts, five season-best times and two
individual wins.
Their No. 6 female counterparts, fresh-
man Elizabeth Beisel and junior Sarah Bate-
man, were also dominant with six qualifying


times, including two season-bests and three
individual victories.
The Gators ran into trouble early on
when they tried to replace the points usually
grabbed by injured junior diver Anthony
Lewark and women's relay swimmer Shara
Stafford.
"We weren't as fresh as we would've liked
to have been for the meet, and unfortunately,
Auburn has a lot of depth in the sprints and
the relays," Bateman said.
Coming into the Auburn meet, Lewark
had racked up a team-high seven diving
wins. In his absence with a shoulder injury,
Florida missed out on winning either the 1-
or 3-meter dive for the first time this year in
a dual meet.
While missing a key diver was an issue,
the Gators also struggled in the relays.
Stafford, a junior, has been a part of sea-
son-high times in four different relays and is
the team's third leading points scorer. With-
out her help anchoring the 400-yard freestyle
relay and 200-yard medley relay, Florida


dropped both events, leaving 22 points in
the pool.
Coach Gregg Troy could not be reached
for comment Friday night as to why Stafford
was not at the meet.
"She can really swim anything so it took a
lot of us to fill in for what she usually swims,"
Bateman said.
Even with their struggles in the dives and
relays, the Gators drew
close to the Tigers' lead
by the 15th event of the
evening.
Swimming The men's team (4-3,
2-1 SEC) swept the 200-
yard butterfly led by
sophomore Sebastien Rousseau's NCAA
"B" cut time of 1:46.04, and Bateman's win
in the 50-yard freestyle for the women to cut
Auburn's lead on the Gators to six and seven
points.
But just when Florida thought it had
clawed back in reach of the No. 6 Tigers.
Adam Brown, the defending SEC Swimmer


of the Week, swept Florida's juniors Karl
Krug and freshman Marcelo Chierighini in
the 50-yard freestyle. All three of their times
qualified for NCAA "B" cuts.
The Tigers' lead was then back to 20 and
continued to swell onto a 34-point victory for
their men's team on Senior Day.
The women's team fared similarly after
Bateman's win. Their single-digit deficit last-
ed for just one event as Auburn responded
with four straight wins in the 3-meter dive,
100-yard freestyle, 200-yard backstroke and
200-yard breaststroke.
Sophomore Jaime Bohunicky finally
stopped the Tigers' run with an NCAA "B"
cut win in the 500-yard freestyle, but by
then, Auburn had a 19-point cushion on the
Gators.
The Tigers increased their advantage with
wins in two of the last three events of the af-
ternoon. Florida dropped to 0-2 in Southeast-
ern Conference play with the 165-135 loss but
will host Auburn and the rest of the league at
the SEC Championships Feb. 11-19.

Dickerson sweeps event titles, Florida wins third straight


By ALLISON BANKO
Alligator Writer

The Gators hit the road for the
first time all season, and the un-
familiar mats served for just an-
other victory.
Florida experienced more of
the same as the squad traveled to
Baton Rouge, La., and swept LSU
on Friday, posting its third con-
secutive win to open the season.
The 196.425 to 194.000 victory
was the first road meet of the sea-
son for the top-ranked Gators.
Without the usual home atmo-
sphere of the O'Connell Center,
the team was greeted in a man-
ner they hadn't experienced this


season.
"It was a lot different," sopho-
more Ashanee Dickerson said.
"We had the crowd booing us
when we came out."
Unshaken, Dickerson snagged
her 10th career all-around title
with her performance.
"Unbelievable," coach Rhon-
da Faehn said. "Phenomenal.
She just continues to shine. She
shows everybody that she's the
real deal."
Dickerson posted a 9.800 on
uneven parallel bars, a 9.900 on
vault, a 9.950 on floor exercise
and a 9.825 on balance beam. She
became the first Gators gymnast
to sweep a meet's five event titles


since Chrissy Van Fleet did so in
2000.
"It was amazing," Dickerson
said. "I just went out there and
did what I did every day."
On floor routine, fellow soph-
omore Marissa
King edged just
behind Dick-
erson, scoring
a 9.875 for her
performance
- the second-
Dickerson highest score for
both teams in
the event.
"I had a great floor routine to-
night," King said. "Every time I
do, I just get better and better."


All-arounder Alaina John-
son, the two-time SEC Freshman
Gymnast of the Week, returned
to four-event action against the
Tigers after sitting out on balance
beam last week due to an injured
toe.
In her return to beam, she
pulled out a 9.775.
Freshman Mackenzie Caquat-
to also competed in an additional
event as a fresh addition to the
vault roster. She has only per-
formed in bars and beam in her
college career up until Friday's
meet. Though Caquatto earned
an impressive 9.850 on vault, her
performance on bars fell short at
a 9.400.


"She had an absolute per-
fect routine, but she went over,"
Faehn said. "She was trying so
hard for perfection. It's a mistake
that she's very upset about."
Although Faehn said the team
did fabulous in some areas, such
as Dickerson's title and King's
floor routine, overall the team
didn't reach its full potential. She
said Florida's biggest struggle
was nailing stuck landings -
something the team has been suc-
cessful in its first two meets of the
season.
"I think we did decent," Faehn
said. "Nowhere near our capabil-
ities. It's going to be a great learn-
ing experience.

ter defeating No. 7 Baylor 5-2 on
Sunday.
Playing at home, the Gators bat-
tled the Bears throughout the day,
winning six close matches.
"It was no surprise," coach
Andy Jackson said. "We felt like
we could win against them, but we
also felt like we could lose against
them. Right now, it looks like we're
ahead a little bit."
In doubles action, the Gators'
No. 11 pair of Alexandre Lacroix
and Nassim Slilam earned a vic-
tory against the Bears' No. 4 team
of Roberto Maytin and John Peers.
Lacroix and Slilam's experience
playing together paid off as their
win gave the team
,a lot of momentum,
Jackson said.
The Gators earned
Tennis their first point of
the day after Sekou
Bangoura Jr. and Andrew Butz de-
feated Sergio Ramirez and Jordan
Rux (9-7).
"Sekou was just fantastic," Jack-
son said. "He showed why he is
one of the best doubles players in
the country."
Butz's strong play continued
in singles action, where his win
against Julian Bley gave the Gators
the decisive fifth point.
Only a freshman, Butz entered
the fall under the radar, but he has
the potential to be a key player now
and in the future, Jackson said.
The Gators' other singles wins
came when Slilam defeated May-
tin (7-6(2), 6-2) and No. 52 Bob van
Overbeek defeated Ramirez (4-6,

the independent florida Not officially associated with the University of Florida Published by Campus Communications, Inc of Gainesville, Florida VOLUME 105 ISSUE 13 We Inform. You Decide. MONDAY, JANUARY 24, 2011 State to consider allowing guns on campus THE BILL WOULD ALLOW ANYONE WITH A CONCEALED WEAPONS PERMIT TO CARRY A HANDGUN IN PLAIN SIGHT. By SARAH POSER Alligator Contributing Writer As some lawmakers propose tighter gun legislation in the wake of the Arizona shooting, one Florida state senator is pushing for a bill to loosen gun control in the state as well as the classroom. Last month Sen. Greg Evers proposed an open carry gun law under Senate Bill 234. The bill would allow anybody with a concealed weapon permit to carry a handgun in plain sight. Individuals with a concealed weapon permit would also be able to practice open carry at college campuses, career centers and private schools. The bill will take effect July 1 if it is approved. UF Police Chief Linda Stump said the bill would cause a "major shift" in the way UFPD conducts business. For Stump, the bill presents a larger issue. "This is an educational setting where we hope people have rational, open discourse," Stump said. "We oppose legislation that would put guns in that situation." Brian Malte, director of federal mobilization for the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, is working with students Evers across the country to defeat legislature such as Senate Bill 234. Malte said he believes open carry could contribute to a culture of fear and intimidation. "More guns in the mix just create more of a problem for public safety," he said. "This is no time to bring the Wild West to Flonda." Sean Caranna, executive director of Flonda Carry, a movement supporting the right to bear arms, said people are playing up the "Wild West" idea. In the 43 states that allow some form of the bill, those scenarios just do not happen. Caranna said the bill would deter cnme and could protect students in the classroom. "You go to college to prepare for the rest of your life," he said. "You shouldn't lose it because you couldn't defend yourself." Florida is one of seven states that do not currently allow open carry gun rights. Malte encourages everyone to reach out to legislators, no matter his or her stance on the issue. "The more outrage there is, the more the gun lobby starts to retreat," he said. "Without a lot of protest, there is a chance the gun lobby could shove it through." LOCAL Program keeps teens on right path By MORGAN WATKINS Alligator Writer Officer Doug Williams walks through the grass to the tune of middle school boys shouting. Lined up in rows of seven or so, the boys stand straight. A man stands a few paces away. "Lock it up!" he says. The boys echo his command, straightening their arms and snapping their fists out in front of them. They begin to count. "One, sir!" shouts the shortboy, no more than 12, in the front, far left row. He snaps his fist to his side. "Two, sir!" yells the next in line. "Three, sir!" "Four, sir!" "Five, sir!" "Six, sir!" Williams stands a few yards away, watching the boys count off. This is how employees take attendance here in the middle school sector of the Reichert House Youth Academy, a nonprofit organization supported by the Gainesville Police Department and other local groups, that serves more than 130 at-risk boys in grades five through 12. Williams, a GPD officer for 10 years who used to patrol downtown Gainesville, has worked at SEE REICHERT, PAGE 4 Armed robber hits banks in Austria using Obama mask as disguise VIENNA -Say, isn't that the president with a gun in his hand? Actually, no, but it sure looks like it. Austrian authorities are searching for a bank robber who uses an unusual disguise: He wears a Barack Obama mask during his holdups. Police say the man, nicknamed the "Obama Robber" by local media, is wanted for six heists since 2008. The most recent took place Thursday in the hamlet of Handenberg. There the Obama-resembling suspect made off with an undisclosed amount of money after threatening bank employees with a gun. Austrian police official Markus Mitloehner said Friday that the man is thought to be a local since he speaks the regional dialect with nary a trace of Obama's more professorial accent. -THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Today FORECAST 2 OPINIONS 6 -T CLASSIFIEDS 9 Sunny CROSSWORD 11 66/47 SPORTS 13 visit www.alligator.org Encore For More Fans clamor for folk/reggae/acoustic artist Zach Deputy at Common Grounds during a 24-minute encore Friday night.

January 25, 1968: Planners for the fifth annual Graham Area Playboy Party on campus announce they're looking for Gator girls to don the bunny ears. "If you are a cute coed who likes to mingle and doesn't mind being stared at, Graham Area wants you," said committee chairman Bob Glidden. January 23, 1974: A series of back-and-forth dorm raids culminates in a shouting match among 200 students from Broward and Rawlings halls until UPD officers arrive to keep the peace. Women from Broward Hall stormed the Rawlings floors armed with shaving cream, talcum powder and eggs. The Rawlings boys trashed the girls' floors with shaving cream and shampoo. Police patrolled the area to break up smaller retaliation attacks throughout the night. January 30, 1985: The Gator football team is honored for its first Southeastern Conference Championship with a $25,000 grant from the Florida Coca-Cola Bottling Co.

LifeSouth Community Blood Centers of Gainesville will be kicking off its semiannual "What Colors Do You Bleed?" blood drive Monday. The competition is a tradition between the schools to see which can collect the most donations for their local blood banks in a week. The winner will be announced following the basketball game Feb. 5. Kentucky has won the contest the past two years. According to Clay Gibbons, the community development coordinator for LifeSouth, this event is the organization's largest of the year. After a holiday season shortage, these extra donations will help fulfill an emergency need. "For me, donating could potentially save a life." Remy Kimes Santa Fe student LifeSouth anticipates more participation this year because a Champions Trophy will be awarded for the first time. All student organizations can compete in different divisions for this award. "We're hoping people will bring out their friends, not just to beat Kentucky but help their organization win the trophy," said Claire Lovell, a student intern for LifeSouth. Remy Kimes, a Santa Fe College student, plans to participate in the drive because he knows his O-negative blood is desperately needed, he said. "For me, donating could potentially save a life," he said. "That's all the motivation I need to go out and give blood." Bloodmobiles will be at the Hub, Gator Corner Dining Center, Broward Dining Center and on Turlington Plaza between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. Donations will also be accepted at LifeSouth donor centers and Gainesville Health & Fitness centers. Your campus news source UF Showcase attracts employers who want to hire Students scared of the thinning job market will be relieved to hear that this week's UF Career Showcase is expected to bring as many employers as last spring to campus.

A Night for HOPE featured musicians, speakers and students who had been to the clinic. The performers shared their personal experiences through songs. Admission was $5 or the donation of a used textbook, which Hope will re-sell online. Paul Emery, executive director of U.S. Center for World Mission in Gainesville, spoke from firsthand experience about the struggles children face in Africa. "These kids are going to be ca p lucky if they get to sixth grade," Ca pshe said. The event raised $440 for Hope. Kelley Williams, Hopes treasurer, estimates the group will raise between $700 and $800 through its online textbook sales. Williams said the group has been so successful in its efforts, raising $4,970.80 in the past year, that it now is expanding its partnerships. "The clinic was telling us we were almost overwhelming them with funds," Williams said. "They didn't have enough stuff to spend the money on, so they told us to consider looking into new partnerships."

4, ALLIGATOR U MONDAY, JANUARY 24, 2011 Counseling center to offer support for Web addicts By AMANDA EATMAN Alligator Contributing Writer Tyler Reed, coordinator of UF's collegiate-league "StarCraft II" team, can play nonstop, skip meals and justify spending seven to eight hours on the computer a day. "If I wasn't doing this, I would probably be watching television or raging," Reed said, "and neither are preferable." Reed said he believes Internet gaming like this shares symptoms of addiction. "You will skip meals," he said, "especially when you aren't living at home, and your parents don't bug you to go eat." The Counseling and Wellness Center at UF will offer a new group for students who consider themselves dependent on computer games, video games and the Internet. The group, called Unplug Yourself from the Virtual World, is free for students and will meet every Wednesday from 3 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. starting the first week in February. Fred Shueh facilitates the group as a psychology intern at the Counseling and Wellness Center. He said the group aims to provide a safe place to explore issues regarding Internet use. Shueh said group therapy helps participants in several ways. They realize they aren't the only ones dealing with the problem. They can hear other students' stories about how they struggle and how different people deal with their problems in different ways. Finally, group therapy helps participants become motivated to make changes in their lives with the support from group members. "If I wasn't doing this, I would probably be watching television or raging, and neither are preferable." Tyler Reed coordinator of UF's collegiate-league "StarCraft II" team Shueh said the group is set to be inclusive and welcomes all Internet users, including those who chat, shop, use Facebook, play games and more. Dr. Timothy Huckaby, physician and clinical assistant professor in psychiatry and addiction medicine at the Florida Recovery Center, said Internet dependency is considered a process addiction, which is an addiction to an activity like eating or gambling. Addictions can interfere with a person's social life, family, work and school, Huckaby said. People use the Internet as a way to escape their problems and can lose control. Shueh said many people won't admit they have a problem with computer use. "I didn't make this group to merely focus on fixing Internet dependence but to help students understand what is going on and to help them balance their life and their computer and Internet use," he said. For more information about the group Unplug Yourself from the Virtual World, contact Shueh at shueh@ufl.edu. The Reichert House offers guidance, academic advising to at-risk boys REICH ERT, from page 1 Reichert House for five years. He was originally an intervention specialist who counseled the kids and is now the program's operations director. He offers advice and help to all the boys at Reichert House, but for some he becomes a close mentor. He tells them when they're messing up in school, and he helps them work through their problems. If a boy needs to get out of the house to clear his mind, Williams might take him fishing on a weekend. Sometimes, the best thing he can do for a boy is to call him out on his mistakes and talk with his parents about how to help. Najuan Williams, a 19-year-old alumnus of the program who still volunteers there, received support from Officer Williams that helped him control his anger. Shorter than many boys, Najuan would often lash out when someone tried to mess with him. To help him release his anger without slugging another kid, the older Williams had him lift News weights or practice boxing. This helped Najuan work out his emotions physically without pressing his fist to another person's face. Originally for boys involved with the Florida Department of Juvenile Justice, Reichert House now serves at-risk boys in general. A boy who qualifies for the program can have a variety of risk factors, from living in a single-parent home to getting poor grades. Reichert House works with multiple organizations to develop and maintain its programs, including the city of Gainesville and UF. It is funded by donations and local and state money, according to the Reichert House website. Businesses can also contribute by becoming site sponsors that receive recognition for their support. The after-school program runs Monday through Thursday. The middle school section focuses more heavily on discipline and preparing them for high school, while the high school portion encourages personal responsibility and free-thinking. Reichert House also has a summer program that runs all day on weekdays. During the school year, the boys are picked up from their schools and brought to Reichert House. The program provides academic advising, counseling, paramilitary exercises and other services, Williams said. Sherry Estes, assistant principal of student services at Eastside High School, provides academic help for the high school sector along with student volunteers from UF and Santa Fe College. Estes has been involved with Reichert House for three years. She teaches math, advises students on academics and encourages them to study for the ACT and SAT. In some ways, she and the other adults in the program are surrogate parents for the boys. They help them make decisions and don't sugarcoat the truth. As she shuffles papers on a desk in a Reichert House office, a boy in orange-and-black pants walks in the door to ask her about logging onto the ACT website. As she answers his questions, another boy leans against the door frame. "I got a 13," he says of his ACT score. Estes looks over at him sternly. "You're going to take it again," she says. The boy mumbles and looks down, frowning. "Hey. Not an option. OK?" Estes says. No answer. "Yes, Ms. Estes," she answers for him. The boy looks up. Not an option. In addition to academics, Reichert House boys meet with intervention specialists who provide counseling and representatives from local organizations that teach them about health, finances and other subjects, Williams said. They also have time for recreation and get a meal before they are taken home in the evening. The program meets the individual needs of each child and keeps them off the street during prime crime hours. In the last four years, 100 percent of the program's senior classes have graduated from high school, Williams said. While some do end up in jail, most go on to college or junior college. At Reichert House, Williams is the "silent hammer," the fail-safe, the last line of defense. If a boy gets out of control, Williams steps in to handle the situation, whether that means calming the boy down, disciplining him or both. On the lawn in front of the middle school phase of Reichert House, Williams talks with a young boy and his mom. The boy, Arkeem Bennett, has been getting poor grades. Williams tells him he needs to do something proactive instead of mouthing off. "Grades man, first and foremost," Williams tells him, placing a hand on his shoulder. "Everything else will take care of itself." Arkeem, wearing a red T-shirt and carrying a backpack, looks at the ground. "If you're going to be a smart aleck, be one all the way and in there, too," Williams says, tapping the textbook in the boy's arms. It's time for Arkeem and his mother to head home, so Williams gives his shoulder a squeeze and smiles. Arkeem's mom turns to leave with her son but looks back at Williams. "Thanks, sugar." Williams is no stranger to what Max Reed/ Alligator Staff Officer Doug Williams poses in front of a Reichert House sign. He serves as a mentor for many of the program's students on a daily basis. the boys of Reichert House are going through in their lives. He may be a police officer, but he's also a Gainesville native with a rough past. He can relate to these boys because he's been through it all himself. Growing up in a single-parent home like many of the Reichert House boys, he did poorly in school and was often just seeking attention from anyone who would notice. By 14, he had been shot and stabbed. He watched his best friend die from a gunshot wound right in front of him. When a boy like 16-year-old James Nixon, who was previously involved in gangs, joins the program, Williams understands the pressures he faces because he faced them, too. "I don't want them to go through what I went through," Williams said. "If I reach one, I've done something. That's one less I have to worry about being a tax-taker instead of a taxpayer." By working with the boys on a daily basis, Williams hopes to change their views of police officers. Many grow up seeing cops as the enemy, often because their parents view law enforcement that way. He wants them to see him, as well as other officers, as people who can help rather than hurt. If a Reichert House boy runs into trouble, other officers know to call Williams to come work things out as long as the offense doesn't require the boy's arrest. He isn't there to punish the children but to discipline them when necessary and help them handle the daily trials of home, school and tough neighborhoods. For James, Reichert House became a place to learn leadership skills and to help others. When James first joined the program, he was still in the mindset of being a "knucklehead" and didn't want to listen. But as he became familiar with the children and adults involved in the program, he realized that he could embrace Reichert House and learn how to be successful in life, or he could just "come out dumb." He decided to be successful. James knows that when he needs Williams, he can call, and Williams will be there. In return, James will do any job Williams asks of him at Reichert House. They help each other.

MONDAY, JANUARY 24, 2011 U ALLIGATOR, 5 Media center book, CD sale raises $1,000 0 BOOKS AND CDS COST $1 EACH. By MEREDITH RUTLAND Alligator Writer Folk CDs and books about censorship and birth control stacked the shelves at the Civic Media Center sale Saturday. Customers looked through about 1,500 folk, acoustic and rock CDs, all $1 each. Any books the library had duplicates of were on sale too. About 200 books ranging from "Young Radicals: Notes on Committed Youth" to "Exploring Human Sexuality: Making Healthy Decisions" to "Feng Shui for Apartment Living" were also $1 each. James Schmidt, a store coordinator, said the sale brought in about $1,000. "That's huge for the CMC," he said. He said it has been tough for the library the past two years, but it's staying afloat. "I think it's a crying shame when we lose those businesses," Schmidt said, "because they are the bedrock of the culture." As customers flipped through the boxes of CDs, Schmidt explained the loss behind the library's gain. A "much-loved" folk and acoustic radio show was canceled by WUFT, so the disc jockey donated about 1,000 CDs that she used to run her show to the library. Randy Reid, the county manager for the Alachua County Commission, bought about 25 CDs from the sale, taking a sampling of genres from the former show. He said he didn't know all the artists he was buying, but, for $1 per CD, the price couldn't be better. "I can risk a dollar just to try it," he said.

6, ALLIGATOR U MONDAY, JANUARY 24, 2011 Hail to the Tweet Social media connects public to White House We got a little preview of the State of the Union address this weekend, but for now we're more intrigued that the White House is embracing technology in the lead-up to the speech Tuesday night. Concerned Americans can pose their burning questions to President Obama via Facebook, YouTube and Twitter. Given that the president owes much of his 2008 campaign success to social media, his effort to make citizens feel more involved via the Internet comes as no surprise. On one hand, we are all for broadening the horizons of political interactions, allowing voters to come face-to-face with their leaders and express themselves. The nation stands on the cusp of a new era when nearly anyone, regardless of age, income or location, can question the people who are supposed to look out for their best interests. We understand there will be a vetting system to weed out people without legitimate questions and to throw the president some soft ones. But that's how most political discussions occur now. On the other hand, we have to wonder how someone could pose a pertinent and important question that's still specific enough to elicit a thoughtful response in only 140 characters. All problems aside, anything that gets people thinking about what our elected officials are doing and saying contributes to the good of our society. School on Crutches Maybe a l title struggling does the mind good. Students remember material better when they take tests on it rather than merely studying it, according to new research in the journal Science. We're used to studying textbooks and reviewing notes until our eyes beg for mercy, so this is a breakthrough. The study, which evaluated how much students retained about a passage a week after reading it, dismisses the idea that popular studying methods such as creating diagrams of information make information easier to remember. Taking a test -even a practice test -isolates students from crutches such as textbooks and forces them to rely on memory. So an exam doesn't just force students to regurgitate what they've learned; it embeds the information deeper into memory. Of course, this is just one study. The results make sense, though, because students generally prepare for important exams such as the SAT, LSAT or just the Microeconomics final in the same way: practicing with old tests. This research suggests taking exams not only gives us experience with the specific test's format but also helps to store the information we know. The technique comes with a downside, however. Students feel less confident in their memory while testing and may be tempted to study with the book constantly beside them. With that in mind, for our next exam, we'll consider giving the crutches a break to see if we can stand our own. a ll e independent ftorida al gao Paul Runnestrand EDITOR Elizabeth Behrman Joshua Saval MANAGING EDITORS Cynthia Despres OPINIONS EDITOR The Alligator encourages comments from readers Letters to the editor should not exceed 150 words (about one etter-sized page) They mustbe typed, double-spaced and must include the author's name, classification and phone number Names wiii be withheld if the writer shows just cause We reserve the right to edit for length, grammar, styie and iibei Send letters to ietters@aiiigatororg, bring them to 1105 W University A or send them to P0 Box 14257, GainesviIle, FL 32604-2257Columns of about 450 words about original topics and editorial cartoons are also welcome Questions?

For more than a century, these words have been America's call to the world, and the world has answered eagerly. Unfortunately, those on the left have perverted these same words during today's debate over immigration reform. They recklessly wield them in support of absolute amnesty for illegal immigrants and deceptively denounce conservatives as being in favor of detention and deportation of all those here illegally. Obviously, neither of these solutions embodies the true meaning or spirit of Emma Lazarus' powerful words. But if neither approach works, how can we fix the problem of illegal immigration? It's simple. We can confront it with common sense and a basic understanding of the law of supply and demand. In order to reform the immigration system, decrease the number of illegal aliens and increase overall American prosperity, the federal government must tighten border security, streamline the legal immigration process, increase the number of immigrants legally allowed into the country, create a guest worker program and place those who are here illegally in line with everyone else while holding them responsible for any fines or back taxes they might owe. If lawmakers follow these five simple policy prescriptions, they will be well on their way to solving a pressing problem facing our nation. Unfortunately, many lawmakers on the left refuse to realistically confront this problem. Rather, they push for amnesty, even limited amnesty, without any of the additional remedies. Limited amnesty was tried in 1986 and failed. In fact, it only encouraged more illegal immigration in the following years. The same would be true today, and passage of the DREAM Act would surely create a nightmare along America's borders. Zack Smith It is important to remember, letters@alligator.org however, that even though those who are in the country illegally broke the law to get here, most did so for good reasons. They were pursuing the American dream of a better life for themselves and their families. While we cannot reward their illegal activity, we must take this as a clear sign that there is a demand for their services as well as an ample supply of immigrants willing to meet this demand. If the immigration process is streamlined and the number of immigrants legally allowed into the country is increased, most who are pursuing work would follow this path. Not only would this reduce strain on the border, but it would allow more resources to be devoted to preventing those who truly wish to harm America from coming into the country. Immigration reform is a necessity. We are a nation of immigrants and should welcome with open arms any who wish to come here to pursue the American dream. Comprehensive reform would create opportunities for millions of citizens and immigrants to have better lives for themselves and for their families. This is the hope that America provides to millions, and what could be more American than making this hope a reality for millions more? Zack Smith is afirst-year law student.

MONDAY, JANUARY 24, 2011E ALLIGATOR, 7 Taxi sting shows benefits of UF Student Government I was extremely uplifted to read about Student Government and Ben Meyer's recent role in investigating taxi price gouging. I, too, have been a victim of overpriced taxis while attempting to get home safely at night. Like with other victims, my taxi driver did not run his meter, nor was the flat rate I was later charged displayed on the cab. My ride cost a whopping $35, far more than I had spent while out that night. This is a confusing situation for students to be in, particularly when trying to get home late at night. I had never taken a cab ride until arriving in Gainesville and thus knew nothing about the way they charge. Without prior knowledge, I was unable to stand up to the taxi driver. I believe this is the same situation most students find themselves in. They are simply glad to arrive home safely, so they do not argue with the overcharging. It appears that most cab drivers understand the situation that students are in and have unfairly taken advantage of it. Thankfully, we are blessed to have such an active student government and student leaders, like Ben Meyers, who take matters into their own hands. He took it upon himself to spend a night riding in taxis in order to investigate. That is the kind of leader students at UF need -one who willingly will do whatever possible to ensure the safety and fair treatment of students. Michelle Lanier UFstudent Columnist fails to examine valid opposing opinions I'm guessing that Bob Minchin is one of those closedminded individuals who thinks "The Colbert Report" is conservative. You are correct on the "unpopularity of liberal ideology" in the media, though. I mean who watches ABC, NBC, CBS or CNN? Or reads the silly New York Times? However, with my hypothesis regarding your ignorance of "The Colbert Report" message, sarcasm may have been a poor choice here. I'm just saying to open your mind up a little bit and think about why the Fairness Doctrine might be a good idea. A persuasive paper should concede opposing views and argue them down, something you completely ignored in your opinion article. One-sided thinking and reporting will not get us anywhere.

For the record, talk of reinstating the Fairness Doctrine was advanced by one Democratic congressman, not the entire party, nor any other broad group of liberals. No piece of legislation has been drafted, either. Additionally, President Obama and representatives for his administration have repeatedly made clear their belief that the Fairness Doctrine should not be reinstated. But those facts didn't really matter to Minchin, who capitalized on typical conservative paranoia about a vast mass media conspiracy as a rhetorical vehicle to drive his column's side argument that the Tuscon Tragedy was -wait for it -caused by liberals. Matthew Christ N e v e r Speaking Out mind that the shooter's reading list featured a blatant anti-government strain. Never mind the shooter's YouTube videos about illegal currency are essentially a strippeddown version of a typical Glenn Beck program. Never mind that most of our country's leaders have rightly declared that the shooter wasn't exactly a crazy far leftist or a crazy Tea Partier but was rather just crazy. As in apolitically deranged. Further, to address Minchin's contention that "liberalism cannot survive in the arena of ideas," which, let's face it, is like calling your momma fat in the world of politics, I'd like to remind him that it has been the progressives from both parties that have advanced the best ideas of the past few generations. Be it women's suffrage, civil rights, clean water standards, higher education standards, regulations to ensure fairness and equity in the marketplace or social safety nets that have lifted millions out of poverty and into the middle class, liberal ideas have fared pretty well in every intellectual arena that they've been tested. The more astute readers out there might notice that Republicans advanced some of these ideas. Unfortunately, it seems that intellectuals are increasingly being turned away from the GOP. But rest assured, they're always welcomed at a gathering of the UF College Democrats. Matthew Christ is a third -year advertising and political science major. He is also the vice president of community outreach for the UF College Democrats. Blend of political views necessary ob Minchin claims "liberalism is an emotive ideology. By nature, it relies more on feelings than intellect." Then I guess conservative "intellects" Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh are actually liberals in disguise. Here are a few in a long lists of quotes that prove they rely on emotions rather than rational thinking: "We're not sexists, we're chauvinist -we're male chauvinist pigs, and we're happy to be because we think that men were destined to be. We think that's what women want." "I could give a flying crap about the political process. We're an entertainment company." "Every night I get down on my knees and pray that Dennis Kucinich will burst into flames." Unfortunately for Minchin's logic, conservative radio hosts are no intellectuals and neither are their liberal counterparts. If you're going to make such an argument, you have to support it with facts, not just a petty, onesided political agenda. Minchin also claims that conservatism is winning because people are voting some Democrats out of office. Then what happened in 2006? What happened in 2008?

There will always be both a conservative and a liberal base, but the truth is most Americans fall in the middle and despise these extremes. They despise liberalism just as much as conservatism. And just for the record, Mr. Minchin, without some liberal ideas, we would not have Social Security or Medicare. Just ask a bunch of 70-year-old Tea Party members to end their Social Security and Medicare benefits and see their reactions. In all fairness, without conservatism perhaps our income tax rates would be what they were under presidents of the 1960s or 1970s (70 to 90 percent for the highest brackets). I guess what I'm trying to prove is that our country is neither conservative nor liberal but a constant political mix, where different ideas from different ideologies are blended to form this beautiful country that -with all its problems -I dearly love and adore.

8, ALLIGATOR U MONDAY, JANUARY 24, 2011 LOCAL Field set for City Commission election ALLIGATOR STAFF REPORT While the weather continues to waver between chilly and cold, the race for District 3 City Commission is heating up as the candidates prepare to make their push toward City Hall. The race for the commission seat is chock-full of candidates, each with varying backgrounds and political experiences. For the next month and a half, they will be making their case to voters as to why they are qualified to serve Gainesville. The election, which will be March 15, will be a five-way contest among Susan Bottcher, Ozzy Angulo, Jimmy Harnsberger, Ramon Trujillo and Rob Zeller. Bottcher, who graduated from UF with a degree in anthropology in 1979, said she decided to run because she saw certain political movements, such as the "Teapublicans," start to trickle into Gainesville. She said she doesn't want those viewpoints to choke the spirit of the city. "It's all very negative. It's not solution-based," she said. "They're backward-looking. The traditional character of Gainesville has been forward-looking." After graduating from college, Bottcher, 53, worked for Nationwide Insurance as a claims writer for about 10 years. Then, after marrying her husband, Del, she chose to be a stay-at-home mom. She became involved with Littlewood Elementary School's PTA and then joined the East Gainesville Development Task Force. Before long, she was president of a nonprofit organization dedicated to bringing a childrens museum to Gainesville. She'd volunteered in about eight educational and political organizations before she volunteered with the Alachua County Democratic Executive Committee during the 2004 election. Bottcher said the extent of her political involvement previously had been yelling at the TV during newscasts. She quickly learned the ins and outs of campaign planning, she said. "That was kind of my political education," she said. Angulo, 30, is no stranger to political campaigns. Last year, he ran for city mayor, finishing fifth in a field of five. While some may see Angulo's performance as discouraging, he saw it as a learning experience. "I've learned that solutions to a lot of the challenges that we face are within the community and in our city," Angulo said. "The perception that it's difficult for certain businesses to get established is actually a reality." Angulo has assembled a staff to assist him with his campaign. "He likes to pick local businesses; he likes to have a feel of what Gainesville is," said David Arreola, the media coordinator for Angulo's campaign. "He's very committed and has very strong convictions. From what I've seen, we have very intelligent staff members and we're going to make sure the right man gets elected to the chair." In order to bolster his political presence, Angulo, a former U.S. Marine and a current theater student at Santa Fe College, is offering to do chores for Gainesville residents for political donations. "I'm willing to work for campaign donations because that is what I intend to do as a commissioner -work," Angulo said. WhileAngulo is using mediums such as Craigslist to get his name out there, Harnsberger, 40, is taking a more "super" route. Across town, signs line yards that portray Harnsberger ripping his T-shirt to reveal a superhero-like "J" written underneath. The slogan: "We need Jimmy in the city." "I'm running now because I think we've got some very serious issues before the commission," he said. "And I think we need a fresh perspective on how to tackle those problems." Harnsberger, who is an assistant professor in the linguistics department at UF, said he first became involved in politics when he and other residents in his neighborhood worked with the City Commission to close down a nearby drug house. "I'm running now because I think we've got some very serious issues before the commission." Jimmy Harnsberger City Commission candidate From there, he quickly became involved in other community efforts and became president of the University Park Neighborhood Association in 2006. As the city faces budgetary problems and a tough economy, Harnsberger believes the answer isn't more taxes but less spending. The city government, he believes, should focus on tightening its operation while still providing necessary public services, he said. Harnsberger is also concerned with ensuring the city government supports urban neighborhoods and business districts. "It's all connected," he said. "If we let our neighborhoods decline, the businesses don't have customers [and] they close. Schools, businesses, neighborhoods -they all have to be healthy." For Trujillo, 44, the election represents an opportunity to provide a counterbalance to the "liberal establishment," which he believes has taken over the City Commission. Currently unemployed and living on disability insurance, Trujillo has previously worked in a ministry and with various marketing and advertising jobs in South Florida. He said he wants to represent the people of Gainesville "on a values perspective." He said he supports "innovated projects" and stands against Amendment 1, the equality for employment and antidiscriminatory law put in place in 2008 that gave protection to transgender, gay and lesbian people in Gainesville. He lists two former presidents as his political idols: Abraham Lincoln and Ronald Reagan. "They're men of character," he said. While he may be considered a political neophyte, Rob Zeller is no stranger to Gainesville. Having received his undergraduate degree in chemical engineering and MBA from UF, Zeller, 39, owns Grog House, Gator City Sports Grill, Copper Monkey and :08 Seconds. With his background in business, Zeller said he wants to treat city government like a business while trying to lower regulation and going after what he sees as excessive fees. In terms of finances raised, Zeller leads the pack with $11, 996.56. Bottcher is right behind him with $8,490, followed by Harsberger at $1,395 and Angulo at $618.50. Currently, Trujillo shows no finances being raised. A section or the Alligator dedicated to giving students tips on health living and exercise!

Sports MONDAY, JANUARY 24, 2011 UF dominates all phases vs. Hogs Offense bounces back in win By GREG LUCA Alligator Staff Writer gluca@alligator org After weeks of playing well in only one aspect of the game at a time, the Gators finally put together a complete performance Saturday night. Florida (15-4, 4-1 Southeastern Conference) had what may have been its best contest of the year as it shot 50 percent and kept Arkansas (12-6, 2-3 SEC) under wraps, notching a 75-43 blowout victory in the O'Connell Center. "We put it all together," senior Chandler Parsons said. "We played well on offense, we executed and we played very unselfish. And on the defensive end we also locked up." Saturday'sperformance served as a microcosm of what many believed this Florida team would be coming in to the season. UF has played games in which it showed flashes on either offense or defense, but Saturday it proved what it is capable of when it does both for 40 minutes. "That was my focus coming into this game: trying to shut (Clarke) down. He's a great player, great shooter, and Iljust wanted to do my best to disrupt anything he had going on." Kenny Boynton UF sophomore guard "I thought from start to finish it was a real complete game for us," coach Billy Donovan said. Coming off a putrid offensive performance against Auburn in which they shot just 28.3 percent in a 45-40 win, the Gators had one of their strongest scoring outputs of the year. While the offense was entirely different from the way it played at Auburn, the defense looked like the same unit that held the Tigers to their lowest point total in the shot clock era, this time limiting Arkansas to just 29.4 percent shooting. "Everyone put that game Thursday behind us, and we really just wanted to come out and play defense," sophomore guard Kenny Boynton said. Boynton was UF's best defender, as he played a major role in shutting out junior guard Rotnei Clarke, who came into the game averaging a team-high 13.5 points per contest. Clarke mustered just three shot attempts for the game, including two air balls from threepoint range. "That was my focus coming into this game: trying to shut him down," Boynton said. "He's a great player, great shelter, and I just wanted to do my best to disrupt anything he had going on." Although Boynton's focus was on defense, he also played a major role in an offense that needed less than 19 minutes to make as many field goals (15) as it did in the entirety of Thursday's game. UF established an interior presence in the early going to open up the outside, and Boynton responded by hitting a trio of shots from beyond the arc in the first 20 minutes. Florida opened the Auburn game just 3 for 24 from long distance, but Boynton never shied away from an open three, connecting on four of his seven SEE HOOPS, PAGE 14 Matt Tripp/ Alligator Staff Florida sophomore guard Kenny Boynton led the Gators offensively with 20 points and helped shut down Rotnei Clarke in a 75-43 rout. ALLIGATOR www.alligatorSports.org Gators' inconsistency defies explanations n a moment of brutal honesty, Florida basketball coach Billy Donovan hopefully put an end to all the speculation, all the guessing games and all the "if only" thinking. When asked if his team was "mystifying" to him, Donovan quickly answered, "Yes." "Don't fall in love," he added, smiling, after a performance worth falling for. The Gators dismantled Arkansas 75-43 on Saturday, something they needed in light of the borderlinehumiliating 45-40 win at Auburn on Thursday. Perhaps the only consistent aspect of Florida's season has been its Adam Berry inconsistency, and that has never Bad News Berry been more clear than it was in the a berry@a Iligator org Thursday-Saturday Southeastern Twitter @adardberry Conference swing. The Gators were horrid offensively at Auburn, scoring the fewest points in the Donovan era, and they were unexpectedly dominant in all phases Saturday against Arkansas. "It shows us what type of team and upside we have if we just keep being focused and coming out, executing our game plan," sophomore guard Kenny Boynton said. SEE HOOPS, PAGE 14 LSU pushes Florida's losing streak to four By MATT WATTS Alligator Writer Before Sunday's game, LSU coach Van Chancellor said he was worried by how hard the Gators play. But the trademark toughness coach Amanda Butler demands from her team was absent until late in a 72-58 shellacking in Baton Rouge, La., against the Tigers. Already on a three-game snide, Florida held a lead for only 13 seconds, and Butler said the team showed a "complete lack of readiness" in the loss. "We've been through a lot emotionally in the past week," Butler said afterward in a radio interview. "But that's life. And that's life in the [Southeastern Conference]." Going on the road to face the SEC leader in scoring defense proved to be too large a task. The Gators'offense was handicapped all night by the Tigers, who routinely forced Florida (129, 2-5 SEC) out of its element into long possessions and half-court sets. UF, a team that likes to run the floor and Butler set up offense with aggressive defense, had zero fast-break points and took multiple bad shots as the shot clock expired. Coupled with the poor ofSEE W-HOOPS, PAGE 14 U Jaguars RB Maurice Jones-Drew tweeted the following Sunday regarding Bears QB Jay Cutler: Hey I think the urban meyer rule is effect right now. When the going gets tough.QUIT." Much like everyone else in Jacksonville, Urban won't be attending any Jags games in the near future. .Billy Donovan's quip to the media Saturday night -"Don't fall in love" -immediately brought to mind Ronnie from Jersey Shore saying, "Don't fall in love at the Jersey shore."

14, ALLIGATOR U MONDAY, JANUARY 24, 2011 Gators come up short despite late charge W HOOPS, from page 13 fensive showing, Butler said the Gators also showed lackluster effort on the other end of the court. "We got crushed on the boards today and really just had very little pride in our defense," Butler said. From the opening minutes, Florida allowed open looks off LSU ball screens. Adrienne Webb, who scored a game-high 18 points, and Taylor Turnbow knocked down wideopen jumpers to give LSU an immediate 5-0 lead. The Tigers took advantage of similar easy opportunities all afternoon, shooting a 50.9 percentage. Sunday is only the second time all season Florida has allowed an opponent to shoot 50 percent from the floor. Auburn made exactly half of its shots in a 17-point victory over UF on Jan. 6. Despite LSU's hot hand, Florida still had its chances. Jordan Jones (15 points, team high) and Lanita Bartley hit late threes to cut the Tigers' halftime lead to eight. LSU went more than four minutes without a field goal. But the Gators scored just five points in the first 12 minutes of the second half and the Tigers extended their lead to 18 points. Florida led a small charge to cut the lead to single digits with just over two minutes left to play, but LaSondra Barrett answered with three of her 14 points to put the game away. "We're just having crucial breakdowns at crucial times," Butler said, referring to a missed rebound opportunity that led to a Kentucky three. "When you're playing (like that) on the road, then you're going to get beat by double-digits by good teams." UF shot 41.5 percent, inflated by a 48-percent first half, and attempted 19 shots from beyond the arc for only the fifth time this season. Butler, reeling after four straight losses, was asked afterward if she thought the small comeback late in the game was a positive the team could use going forward. "That's what you're supposed to do," she said. "That's not something you should get a medal for. You're supposed to keep fighting., Arkansas' man defense leads to easy scoring opportunities for Florida HOOPS, from page 13 attempts on the way to a teamhigh 20 points.

The sophomore hoped he would assume and put together an all-around week Rather than playing a zone 1 4 -_ -----_ Basketball scheme like the one Auburn employed to great success, the Razorbacks opted to stay in a manto-man defense for most of the contest. This allowed the Gators to make easy post feeds and attack early, as they attempted just five threes in the first half. Center Vernon Macklin and forward Alex Tyus combined to score the team's first 12 points. The frontcourt duo finished the game with 13 points apiece. ADAM, from page 13 "If we have more games like that, the same result will come. Entering the weekend, fans had all but given up on seeing those results. This morning, hope once again springs eternal. It's almost become unfair to say it's been a "rollercoaster ride" for the Gators the last two years -at least it's possible to see what's next on a rollercoaster. This team, on the other hand, is completely unpredictable. "They are in a lot of ways," Donovan said. "I love coaching them, and they're great kids, and they work hard, and there are so many elements of them that I enjoy." There have been innumerable complaints, plenty of wishful thinking and certainly no shortage of quick-fix suggestions regarding what would turn this squad into the preseason top-10 team it was predicted to be. It was said the Gators had to fix their shooting to win games. Auburn is a bad team, but Florida still pulled off a win despite a historically bad shooting night. The common consensus before that was UF had to play great defense or it wouldn't stand a chance against quality teams. Almost on cue, Ole Miss and Tennessee each scored more than 70 points and lost to the Gators. I've even played the "what if" game as well. Three weeks ago, I wrote that Chandler Parsons' offensive success was necessary for the Gators to play up to their potential. Parsons scored five points Saturday night. He took only six shots in 30 minutes. But he was involved everywhere else on the floor, grabbing a career-best 15 rebounds and leading the team with five assists. Anything else? Free throws? Turnovers? Offensive rebounding? Sound familiar? Despite everyone's best attempts to find a quick fix, there is none. UF will play above its potential (see: Kansas State, Xavier, Rhode Island, Tennessee, Arkansas), and it will play far below it (see: Jacksonville, UCF), with no rhyme or reason why either happens when it does. To his credit, Donovan has avoided putting the blame on his team for its inconsistency. Instead, he often speaks about his players' need to worry about the things they can control. Entering every game not knowing whether the Gators will play that way, however, has left Donovan -and anyone who follows the team -mystified.

MONDAY, JANUARY 24, 2011 U ALLIGATOR, 15 Gators post eight season-best times in I UF'S MEN'S AND WOMEN'S TEAMS FELL TO AUBURN ON THE ROAD. By JOHN BOOTHE Alligator Writer Florida couldn't spoil Auburn's Senior Day celebration on Friday afternoon, even after notching a season-high 24 NCAA qualifying times and swimming one of their fastest meets of the year. Despite trailing in both men's and women's events for most of the meet, losing by a combined 64 points, the Gators still received the same solid output from the top two swimmers on each team. For the No. 5 men, senior duo Conor Dwyer and Brett Fraser combined for seven NCAA cuts, five season-best times and two individual wins. Their No. 6 female counterparts, freshman Elizabeth Beisel and junior Sarah Bateman, were also dominant with six qualifying times, including two season-bests and three individual victories. The Gators ran into trouble early on when they tried to replace the points usually grabbed by injured junior diver Anthony Lewark and women's relay swimmer Shara Stafford. "We weren't as fresh as we would've liked to have been for the meet, and unfortunately, Auburn has a lot of depth in the spnnts and the relays," Bateman said. Coming into the Auburn meet, Lewark had racked up a team-high seven diving wins. In his absence with a shoulder injury, Florida missed out on winning either the 1or 3-meter dive for the first time this year in a dual meet. While missing a key diver was an issue, the Gators also struggled in the relays. Stafford, a junior, has been a part of season-high times in four different relays and is the team's third leading points scorer. Without her help anchoring the 400-yard freestyle relay and 200-yard medley relay, Florida dropped both events, leaving 22 points in the pool. Coach Gregg Troy could not be reached for comment Friday night as to why Stafford was not at the meet. "She can really swim anything so it took a lot of us to fill in for what she usually swims," Bateman said. Even with their struggles in the dives and relays, the Gators drew close to the Tigers' lead by the 15th event of the evening. Swimming The men's team (4-3, 2-1 SEC) swept the 200yard butterfly led by sophomore Sebastien Rousseau's NCAA "B" cut time of 1:46.04, and Bateman's win in the 50-yard freestyle for the women to cut Auburn's lead on the Gators to six and seven points. But just when Florida thought it had clawed back in reach of the No. 6 Tigers. Adam Brown, the defending SEC Swimmer oss to Tigers of the Week, swept Florida's juniors Karl Krug and freshman Marcelo Chienghini in the 50-yard freestyle. All three of their times qualified for NCAA "B" cuts. The Tigers' lead was then back to 20 and continued to swell onto a 34-point victory for their men's team on Senior Day. The women's team fared similarly after Bateman's win. Their single-digit deficit lasted for just one event as Auburn responded with four straight wins in the 3-meter dive, 100-yard freestyle, 200-yard backstroke and 200-yard breaststroke. Sophomore Jaime Bohunicky finally stopped the Tigers' run with an NCAA "B" cut win in the 500-yard freestyle, but by then, Auburn had a 19-point cushion on the Gators. The Tigers increased their advantage with wins in two of the last three events of the afternoon. Florida dropped to 0-2 in Southeastern Conference play with the 165-135 loss but will host Auburn and the rest of the league at the SEC Championships Feb. 11-19. Dickerson sweeps event titles, Florida wins third straight By ALLISON BANKO Alligator Writer The Gators hit the road for the first time all season, and the unfamiliar mats served for just another victory. Florida experienced more of the same as the squad traveled to Baton Rouge, La., and swept LSU on Friday, posting its third consecutive win to open the season. The 196.425 to 194.000 victory was the first road meet of the season for the top-ranked Gators. Without the usual home atmosphere of the O'Connell Center, the team was greeted in a manner they hadn't experienced this season. "It was a lot different," sophomore Ashan6e Dickerson said. "We had the crowd booing us when we came out." Unshaken, Dickerson snagged her 10th career all-around title with her performance. "Unbelievable," coach Rhonda Faehn said. "Phenomenal. She just continues to shine. She shows everybody that she's the real deal." Dickerson posted a 9.800 on uneven parallel bars, a 9.900 on vault, a 9.950 on floor exercise and a 9.825 on balance beam. She became the first Gators gymnast to sweep a meet's five event titles since Chrissy Van Fleet did so in 2000. "It was amazing," Dickerson said. "I just went out there and did what I did every day." On floor routine, fellow sophomore Marissa King edged just behind Dickerson, scoring a 9.875 for her performance -the secondDickerson highest score for both teams in the event. "I had a great floor routine tonight," King said. "Every time I do, I just get better and better." All-arounder Alaina Johnson, the two-time SEC Freshman Gymnast of the Week, returned to four-event action against the Tigers after sitting out on balance beam last week due to an injured toe. In her return to beam, she pulled out a 9.775. Freshman Mackenzie Caquatto also competed in an additional event as a fresh addition to the vault roster. She has only performed in bars and beam in her college career up until Friday's meet. Though Caquatto earned an impressive 9.850 on vault, her performance on bars fell short at a 9.400. "She had an absolute perfect routine, but she went over," Faehn said. "She was trying so hard for perfection. It's a mistake that she's very upset about." Although Faehn said the team did fabulous in some areas, such as Dickerson's title and King's floor routine, overall the team didn't reach its full potential. She said Florida's biggest struggle was nailing stuck landings something the team has been successful in its first two meets of the season. "I think we did decent," Faehn said. "Nowhere near our capabilities. It's going to be a great learning experience.

16, ALLIGATOR U MONDAY, JANUARY 24, 2011 Gators men top No. 7 Bears By STEPHEN SHEEHAN Alligator Writer The No. 9 men's tennis team may just move up the rankings after defeating No. 7 Baylor 5-2 on Sunday. Playing at home, the Gators battled the Bears throughout the day, winning six close matches. "It was no surprise," coach Andy Jackson said. "We felt like we could win against them, but we also felt like we could lose against them. Right now, it looks like we're ahead a little bit." In doubles action, the Gators' No. 11 pair of Alexandre Lacroix and Nassim Slilam earned a victory against the Bears' No. 4 team of Roberto Maytin and John Peers. Lacroix and Slilam's experience playing together paid off as their win gave the team a lot of momentum, Jackson said. The Gators earned Tennis their first point of the day after Sekou Bangoura Jr. and Andrew Butz defeated Sergio Ramirez and Jordan Rux (9-7). "Sekou was just fantastic," Jackson said. "He showed why he is one of the best doubles players in the country." Butz's strong play continued in singles action, where his win against Julian Bley gave the Gators the decisive fifth point. Only a freshman, Butz entered the fall under the radar, but he has the potential to be a key player now and in the future, Jackson said. The Gators' other singles wins came when Slilam defeated Maytin (7-6(2), 6-2) and No. 52 Bob van Overbeek defeated Ramirez (4-6, GENERAL NUTRITION CENTERS 25% OFF any one GNC Product Cannot be combined.

Lacroix also earned a two-set win on the day as he defeated Rux (7-6(7), 6-1). Although the senior did not play his best this weekend, Jackson remained confident in the team's No. 1 player. "We know the team rests on his shoulders," he said. "I think he can play better, but he's 4-0 so far and you can't do better than 4-0."

THE BILL WOULD ALLOW ANYONE WITH A CONCEALED WEAPONS PERMIT TO CARRY A HANDGUN IN PLAIN SIGHT.By SARAH POSERAlligator Contributing Writer As some lawmakers propose tighter gun legislation in the wake of the Arizona shooting, one Florida state senator is pushing for a bill to loosen gun control in the state as well as the classroom. Last month Sen. Greg Evers proposed an open carry gun law under Senate Bill 234. The bill would allow anybody with a concealed weapon permit to carry a handgun in plain sight. Individuals with a concealed weapon permit would also be able to practice open carry at college campuses, career centers and private schools. The bill will take effect July 1 if it is approved. UF Police Chief Linda Stump said the bill would cause a “major shift” in the way UFPD conducts business. For Stump, the bill presents a larger issue. “This is an educational setting where we hope people have rational, open discourse,” Stump said. “We oppose legislation that would put guns in that situation.” zation for the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, is working with students across the country to defeat legislature such as Senate Bill 234. culture of fear and intimidation. public safety,” he said. “This is no time to bring the Wild West to Florida.” Sean Caranna, executive director of Florida Carry, a movement supporting the right to bear arms, said people are playing up the “Wild West” idea. In the 43 states that allow some form of the bill, those scenarios just do not happen. Caranna said the bill would deter crime and could protect students in the classroom. “You go to college to prepare for the rest of your life,” he said. “You shouldn’t lose it because you couldn’t defend yourself.” Florida is one of seven states that do not currently allow open carry gun rights. no matter his or her stance on the issue. “The more outrage there is, the more the gun lobby starts to retreat,” he said. “Without a lot of protest, there is a chance the gun lobby could shove it through.” State to consider allowing guns on campusLOCALBy MORGAN WATKINSAlligator Writer grass to the tune of middle school boys shouting.

About 175 employers are split between Tuesday and Wednesday. More than 10 of those employers are newcomers to the showcase. Tuesday is the nontechnical day, when employers search for candidates in elds such as accounting, communications, health care, sales and retail. On Wednesday, employers look for candidates in the computer science, construction, engineering and scientic research elds. Wayne Wallace, director of UF’s Career Resource Center, said that although the economy is at a low point, many employers still need workers. “The companies that come today are doing well,” Wallace said. “They are aggressively looking for employees.” Angel Iverson, the assistant director for career events, said students should come prepared and know what companies they are interested in. They should also be ready for two-minute interviews with each company. Information about all the companies, including the positions they’re seeking to ll, can be found on the Career Resource Center’s Web site. “The employers want to create a presence on campus,” she said. “They want students to know they are hiring, and they want face-to-face time where the students can ask questions.” The showcase will be held in the O’Connell Center from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on both days. Normal parking restrictions still apply. Additional information about the UF Career Showcase can be found at: http://www.crc.u.edu/showcase.

MONDAY, JANUARY 24, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 5 Meredith Rutland / Alligator Randy Reid, Alachua County manager, and Bennett Brzychi, a UF sophomore, look through folk and acoustic CDs on sale for $1 each at the CMC sale Saturday. BOOKS AND CDS COST $1 EACH. By MEREDITH RUTLAND Alligator Writer Folk CDs and books about censorship and birth control stacked the shelves at the Civic Media Center sale Saturday. Customers looked through about 1,500 folk, acoustic and rock CDs, all $1 each. Any books the library had duplicates of were on sale too. About 200 books ranging from “Young Radicals: Notes on Committed Youth” to “Exploring Human Sexuality: Making Healthy Decisions” to “Feng Shui for Apartment Living” were also $1 each. James Schmidt, a store coordinator, said the sale brought in about $1,000. “That’s huge for the CMC,” he said. He said it has been tough for the library the “I think it’s a crying shame when we lose those businesses,” Schmidt said, “because they are the bedrock of the culture.” CDs, Schmidt explained the loss behind the library’s gain. A “much-loved” folk and acoustic radio show was canceled by WUFT, so the disc jockey donated about 1,000 CDs that she used to run her show to the library. Randy Reid, the county manager for the Alachua County Commission, bought about 25 CDs from the sale, taking a sampling of genres from the former show. He said he didn’t know all the artists he was buying, but, for $1 per CD, the price couldn’t be better. “I can risk a dollar just to try it,” he said. Media center book, CD sale raises $1,000 By STEPHANIE SCHWARTZ Alligator Contributing Writer About 160 students participated in Alpha Phi Omega’s third Campus Cleanup Extravaganza on Sunday which was followed by a celebration on Flavet Field with free food, games and an award ceremony. The participants split into teams of eight to 10 and picked up trash in various areas around “I like making a difference to the campus, and it is a great way to meet new people,” said Katie Kafer, a member of the coed service fraternity. Alpha Phi Omega members represented about 30 of the people who took part in the cleanup. The rest were students who wanted to get involved and help. Alpha Phi Omega gave awards to teams for the categories of most spirited, best dressed, most garbage collected overall and oddest object found. The winning teams received medals and sunglasses. “Carrying the trash bags may get heavy for some people,” said Amber Danielecki, the organizer of the event. “But in the end, it is such a rewarding experience, and it makes you a happier person.” Students get together for campus-wide cleanup eventThey picked up 100 bags of trash On Campu s

Friday’s question: Are you excited about the new Magic Kingdom section? 48% YES 52% NO48 TOTAL VOTES School on CrutchesMaybe a little struggling does the mind good. Students remember material better when they take tests on it rather than merely studying it, according to new research in the journal Science. We’re used to studying textbooks and reviewing notes until our eyes beg for mercy, so this is a breakthrough. The study, which evaluated how much students retained about a passage a week after reading it, dismisses the idea that popular studying methods such as creating diagrams of information make information easier to remember. Taking a test – even a practice test – isolates students from crutches such as textbooks and forces them to rely on memory. So an exam doesn’t just force students to regurgitate what they’ve learned; it embeds the information deeper into memory. Of course, this is just one study. The results make sense, though, because students generally prepare for important exams such as the SAT, LSAT or just the same way: practicing with old tests. This research suggests taking exams not only gives us experience with but also helps to store the information we know. The technique comes with a downside, however. in their memory while testing and may be tempted to study with the book constantly beside them. With that in mind, for our next exam, we’ll consider giving the crutches a break to see if we can stand our own. Hail to the TweetSocial media connects public to White HouseWe got a little preview of the State of the Union address this weekend, but for now we’re more intrigued that the White House is embracing technology in the lead-up to the speech Tuesday night. Concerned Americans can pose their burning questions to President Obama via Facebook, YouTube and Twitter. Given that the president owes much of his 2008 campaign success to social media, his effort to make citizens feel more involved via the Internet comes as no surprise. On one hand, we are all for broadening the horizons of political interactions, allowing voters to come face-to-face with their leaders and express themselves. The nation stands on the cusp of a new era when nearly anyone, regardless of age, income or location, can question the people who are supposed to look out for their best interests. We understand there will be a vetting system to weed out people without legitimate questions and to throw the president some soft ones. But that’s how most political discussions occur now. On the other hand, we have to wonder how someone could pose a pertinent and important question that’s still characters. All problems aside, anything that gets people thinking tributes to the good of our society.Parties overlook immigration solution“Give [us] your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free.” For more than a century, these words have been America’s call to the world, and the world has answered eagerly. Unfortunately, those on the left have perverted these same words during today’s debate over immigration reform. They recklessly wield them in support of absolute amnesty for illegal immigrants and deceptively denounce conservatives as being in favor of detention and deportation of all those here illegally. Obviously, neither of these solutions embodies the true meaning or spirit of Emma Lazarus’ powerful words. problem of illegal immigration? It’s simple. We can confront it with common sense and a basic understanding of the law of supply and demand. In order to reform the immigration system, decrease the number of illegal aliens and increase overall American prosperity, the federal government must tighten bor der security, streamline the legal immigration process, increase the number of immigrants legally allowed into the country, create a guest worker program and place those who are here illegally in line with everyone else while might owe. tions, they will be well on their way to solving a pressing problem facing our nation. Unfortunately, many lawmakers on the left refuse to realistically confront this problem. Rather, they push for amnesty, even limited amnesty, without any of the additional remedies. Limited amnesty was tried in 1986 and failed. In fact, it only encouraged more illegal immigration in the following years. The same would be true today, and passage of the DREAM Act would surely create a nightmare along America’s borders. It is important to remember, however, that even though those who are in the country illegally broke the law to get here, most did so for good reasons. They were pursuing the American dream of a better life for themselves and their families. While we cannot reward their illegal activity, we must take this as a clear sign that there is a demand for their services as well as an ample supply of immigrants willing to meet this demand. If the immigration process is streamlined and the number of immigrants legally allowed into the country is increased, most who are pursuing work would follow this path. Not only would this reduce strain on the bor der, but it would allow more resources to be devoted to preventing those who truly wish to harm America from coming into the country. Immigration reform is a necessity. We are a nation of immigrants and should welcome with open arms any who wish to come here to pursue the American dream. Comprehensive reform would create opportunities for millions of citizens and immigrants to have better lives for themselves and for their families. This is the hope that America provides to millions, and what could be more American than making this hope a reality for millions more? Zack Smithletters@alligator.org

I was extremely uplifted to read about Student Government and Ben Meyer’s recent role in investigating taxi price gouging. I, too, have been a victim of overpriced taxis while attempting to get home safely at night. Like with other victims, my taxi driver did not run his on the cab. My ride cost a whopping $35, far more than I had spent while out that night. This is a confusing situation for students to be in, par ticularly when trying to get home late at night. I had never taken a cab ride until arriving in Gainesville and thus knew nothing about the way they charge. Without prior knowledge, I was unable to stand up to the taxi driver. themselves in. They are simply glad to arrive home safely, so they do not argue with the overcharging. It appears that most cab drivers understand the situation that students are in and have unfairly taken advantage of it. Thankfully, we are blessed to have such an active student government and student leaders, like Ben Meyers, who take matters into their own hands. He took it upon himself to spend a night riding in taxis in order to investigate. That is the kind of leader students at UF need — one who willingly will do whatever possible to ensure the safety and fair treatment of students. Michelle Lanier UF student I’m guessing that Bob Minchin is one of those closedminded individuals who thinks “The Colbert Report” is conservative. You are correct on the “unpopularity of liberal ideology” in the media, though. I mean who watches ABC, NBC, CBS or CNN? Or reads the silly New York Times? However, with my hypothesis regarding your ignorance of “The Colbert Report” message, sarcasm may have been a poor choice here. I’m just saying to open your mind up a little bit and think about why the Fairness Doctrine might be a good idea. A persuasive paper should concede opposing views and argue them down, something you completely ignored in your opinion article. One-sided thinking and reporting will not get us anywhere. Howard Moore UF student Letters to the EditorRegarding Bob Minchin’s Friday column, a few things need to be cleared up. For the record, talk of reinstating the Fairness Doctrine was advanced by one Democratic congressman, not the entire par ty, nor any other broad group of liberals. No piece of legislation has been drafted, either. Additionally, President Obama and representatives for his administration have repeatedly made clear their belief that the Fairness Doctrine should not be reinstated. But those facts didn’t really matter to Minchin, who capitalized on typical conservative paranoia about a vast mass media conspiracy as a rhetorical vehicle to drive his column’s side argument that the Tuscon Tragedy was — wait for it — caused by liberals. Never mind that the shooter’s reading list featured a blatant anti-government strain. Never mind the shooter’s YouTube videos about illegal cur rency are essentially a strippeddown version of a typical Glenn Beck program. Never mind that most of our country’s leaders have rightly declared that the shooter wasn’t exactly a crazy far leftist or a crazy Tea Partier but was rather just crazy. As in apolitically deranged. Further, to address Minchin’s contention that “liberalism cannot survive in the arena of ideas,” which, let’s face it, is like calling your momma fat in the world of politics, I’d like to remind him that it has been the progressives from both parties that have advanced the best ideas of the past few generations. Be it women’s suffrage, civil rights, clean water standards, higher education standards, regulations to ensure fairness and equity in the marketplace or social safety nets that have lifted millions out of poverty and into the middle class, liberal ideas have fared pretty well in every intellectual arena that they’ve been tested. The more astute readers out there might notice that Republicans advanced some of these ideas. Unfortunately, it seems that intellectuals are increasingly being turned away from the GOP. But rest assured, they’re always welcomed at a gathering of the UF College Democrats. Matthew Christ is a third -year advertising and political science major. He is also the vice president of community outreach for the UF College Democrats.Liberalism stands test of time in USGuest columnSpeaking Out Bob Minchin claims “liberalism is an emotive ideology. By nature, it relies more on feelings than intellect.” Then I guess conservative “intellects” Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh are actually liberals in disguise. Here are a few in a long lists of quotes that prove they rely on emotions rather than rational thinking: “We’re not sexists, we’re chauvinist — we’re male chauvinist pigs, and we’re happy to be because we think that men were destined to be. We think that’s what women want.” cess.... We’re an entertainment company.” “Every night I get down on my knees and pray Unfortunately for Minchin’s logic, conservative radio hosts are no intellectuals and neither are their liberal counterparts. If you’re going to make such an argument, you have to support it with facts, not just a petty, onesided political agenda. Minchin also claims that conservatism is winning because people are voting some Democrats out Then what happened in 2006? What happened in 2008? Anyone who has the most basic education about American politics knows well that there are cycles. the Democrats, and some There will always be both a conservative and a liberal base, but the truth is most Americans fall in the middle and despise these extremes. They despise liberalism just as much as conser vatism. And just for the record, Mr. Minchin, without some liberal ideas, we would not have Social Security or Medicare. Just ask a bunch of 70-year-old Tea Party members to end their Social Security and Medicare benIn all fairness, without conservatism perhaps our income tax rates would be what they were under presidents of the 1960s or 1970s (70 to 90 percent for the highest brackets). I guess what I’m trying to prove is that our country is neither conservative nor liberal but a constant political mix, where different ideas from different ideologies are blended to form this beautiful country that — with all its problems — I dearly love and adore.

8, ALLIGATOR MONDAY, JANUARY 24, 2011 LOCAL ALLIGATOR STAFF REPORT While the weather continues to waver between chilly and cold, the race for District 3 City Commission is heating up as the candidates prepare to make their push toward City Hall. The race for the commission seat is chock-full of candidates, each with varying backgrounds and political experiences. For the next month and a half, they will be making their case to voters as Gainesville. The election, which will be test among Susan Bottcher, Ozzy Angulo, Jimmy Harnsberger, Ramon Trujillo and Rob Zeller. Bottcher, who graduated from UF with a degree in anthropology in 1979, said she decided to run because she saw certain political movements, such as the “Teapublicans,” start to trickle into Gainesville. She said she doesn’t want those viewpoints to choke the spirit of the city. “It’s all very negative. It’s not solution-based,” she said. “They’re backward-looking. The traditional character of Gainesville has been forward-looking.” After graduating from college, Bottcher, 53, worked for Nationwide Insurance as a claims writer for about 10 years. Then, after marrying her husband, Del, she chose to be a stay-at-home mom. She became involved with Littlewood Elementary School’s PTA and then joined the East Gainesville Development Task Force. Before long, she was president of a nonbringing a childrens museum to Gainesville. She’d volunteered in about eight educational and political organizations before she volunteered with the Alachua County Democratic Executive Committee during the 2004 election. Bottcher said the extent of her political involvement previously had been yelling at the TV during newscasts. She quickly learned the ins and outs of campaign planning, she said. “That was kind of my political education,” she said. Angulo, 30, is no stranger to political campaigns. Last year, he ran While some may see Angulo’s performance as discouraging, he saw it as a learning experience. “I’ve learned that solutions to a lot of the challenges that we face are within the community and in our city,” Angulo said. “The perbusinesses to get established is actually a reality.” Angulo has assembled a staff to assist him with his campaign. “He likes to pick local businesses; he likes to have a feel of what Gainesville is,” said David Arreola, the media coordinator for Angulo’s campaign. “He’s very committed and has very strong convictions. From what I’ve seen, we have very intelligent staff members and we’re going to make sure the right man gets elected to the chair.” In order to bolster his political presence, Angulo, a former U.S. Marine and a current theater student at Santa Fe College, is offering to do chores for Gainesville residents for political donations. “I’m willing to work for campaign donations because that is what I intend to do as a commissioner — work,” Angulo said. While Angulo is using mediums such as Craigslist to get his name out there, Harnsberger, 40, is taking a more “super” route. Across town, signs line yards that portray Harnsberger ripping his T-shirt to reveal a superhero-like “J” written underneath. The slogan: “We need Jimmy in the city.” “I’m running now because I think we’ve got some very serious issues before the commission,” he said. “And I think we need a fresh perspective on how to tackle those problems.” Harnsberger, who is an assistant professor in the linguistics departinvolved in politics when he and other residents in his neighborhood worked with the City Commission to close down a nearby drug house. From there, he quickly became involved in other community efforts and became president of the University Park Neighborhood Association in 2006. As the city faces budgetary problems and a tough economy, Harnsberger believes the answer isn’t more taxes but less spending. The city government, he believes, should focus on tightening its operation while still providing necessary public services, he said. Harnsberger is also concerned with ensuring the city government supports urban neighborhoods and business districts. “It’s all connected,” he said. “If we let our neighborhoods decline, the businesses don’t have customers [and] they close. Schools, businesses, neighborhoods — they all have to be healthy.” For Trujillo, 44, the election represents an opportunity to provide a counterbalance to the “liberal establishment,” which he believes has taken over the City Commission. Currently unemployed and living on disability insurance, Trujillo has previously worked in a ministry and with various marketing and advertising jobs in South Florida. He said he wants to represent the people of Gainesville “on a values perspective.” He said he supports “innovated projects” and stands against Amendment 1, the equality for employment and antidiscriminatory law put in place in 2008 that gave protection to transgender, gay and lesbian people in Gainesville. He lists two former presidents as his political idols: Abraham Lincoln and Ronald Reagan. “They’re men of character,” he said. While he may be considered a political neophyte, Rob Zeller is no stranger to Gainesville. Having received his undergraduate degree in chemical engineering and MBA from UF, Zeller, 39, owns Grog House, Gator City Sports Grill, Copper Monkey and :08 Seconds. With his background in business, Zeller said he wants to treat city government like a business while trying to lower regulation and going after what he sees as excessive fees. Zeller leads the pack with $11, 996.56. Bottcher is right behind him with $8,490, followed by Harnsberger at $1,395 and Angulo at $618.50. Currently, Trujillo shows Field set for City Commission election Susan Bottcher Ozzy Angulo Jimmy Harnsberger Ramon Trujillo Rob Zeller “I’m running now because I think we’ve got some very serious issues before the commission.”Jimmy Harnsberger City Commission candidate

fensive showing, Butler said the Gators also showed lackluster effort on the other end of the court. “We got crushed on the boards today and really just had very little pride in our defense,” Butler said. From the opening minutes, Florida allowed open looks off LSU ball screens. Adrienne Webb, who scored a game-high 18 points, and Taylor Turnbow knocked down wideopen jumpers to give LSU an immediate 5-0 lead. The Tigers took advantage of similar easy oppor tunities all afternoon, shooting a 50.9 percentage. Sunday is only the second time all season Florida has allowed an opponent to shoot 50 percent from half of its shots in a 17-point victory over UF on Jan. 6. Despite LSU’s hot hand, Florida still had its chances. Jordan Jones (15 points, team high) and Lanita Bartley hit late threes to cut the Tigers’ halftime lead to eight. LSU went more than ed their lead to 18 points. Florida led a small charge to cut the lead to single digits with just over two minutes left to play, but LaSondra Barrett answered with three of her 14 points to put the game away. “We’re just having crucial breakdowns at crucial times,” Butler said, referring to a missed rebound opportunity that led to a Kentucky three. “When you’re playing (like that) on the road, then you’re going to get beat by double-digits by good teams.” tempted 19 shots from beyond the son. Butler, reeling after four straight losses, was asked afterward if she thought the small comeback late in the game was a positive the team could use going forward. “That’s what you’re supposed to do,” she said. “That’s not something you should get a medal for. ing.” 14, ALLIGATOR Saj Guevara / Alligator StaffFlorida junior Jordan Jones led the Gators with 15 points in a 72-58 loss to LSU on Sunday in Baton Rouge, La. Gators come up short despite late charge W-HOOPS, from page 13“If we have more games like that, the same result will come.” Entering the weekend, fans had all but given up on seeing those results. This morning, hope once again springs eternal. It’s almost become unfair to say it’s been a “rollercoaster ride” for the Gators the last two years — at least it’s on the other hand, is completely unpredictable. “They are in a lot of ways,” Donovan said. “I love coaching them, and they’re great kids, and they work hard, and there are so many elements of them that I enjoy.” There have been innumerable complaints, plenty of suggestions regarding what would turn this squad into the preseason top-10 team it was predicted to be. games. Auburn is a bad team, but Florida still pulled off a win despite a historically bad shooting night. The common consensus before that was UF had to play great defense or it wouldn’t stand a chance against quality teams. Almost on cue, Ole Miss and Tennessee each scored more than 70 points and lost to the Gators. I’ve even played the “what if” game as well. Three weeks ago, I wrote that Chandler Parsons’ offensive success was necessary for the Gators to play up to their potential. Anything else? Free throws? Turnovers? Offensive rebounding? Sound familiar? there is none. UF will play above its potential (see: Kansas State, Xavier, Rhode Island, Tennessee, Arkansas), and it will play far below it (see: Jacksonville, UCF), with no rhyme or reason why either happens when it does. To his credit, Donovan has avoided putting the blame on his team for its inconsistency. Instead, he often speaks about his players’ need to worry about the things they can control. Entering every game not knowing whether the Gators will play that way, however, has left Donovan — and anyADAM, from page 13Arkansas’ man defense leads to easy scoring opportunities for Floridaattempts on the way to a teamThursday,” Parsons said. “That’s a scorer, he’s going to shoot the ball no matter if he goes 0 for 9 or 9 for 9.” Rather than playing a zone scheme like the one Auburn employed to great success, the Razor backs opted to stay in a manto-man defense for most of the contest.

By STEPHEN SHEEHANAlligator Writer The No. 9 men’s tennis team may just move up the rankings after defeating No. 7 Baylor 5-2 on Sunday. Playing at home, the Gators battled the Bears throughout the day, winning six close matches. “It was no surprise,” coach Andy Jackson said. “We felt like we could win against them, but we also felt like we could lose against them. Right now, it looks like we’re ahead a little bit.” In doubles action, the Gators’ No. 11 pair of Alexandre Lacroix and Nassim Slilam earned a victory against the Bears’ No. 4 team of Roberto Maytin and John Peers. Lacroix and Slilam’s experience playing together paid off as their win gave the team a lot of momentum, Jackson said. The Gators earned the day after Sekou Bangoura Jr. and Andrew Butz defeated Sergio Ramirez and Jordan Rux (9-7). “Sekou was just fantastic,” Jackson said. “He showed why he is one of the best doubles players in the country.” Butz’s strong play continued in singles action, where his win against Julian Bley gave the Gators Only a freshman, Butz entered the fall under the radar, but he has the potential to be a key player now and in the future, Jackson said. The Gators’ other singles wins came when Slilam defeated Maytin (7-6(2), 6-2) and No. 52 Bob van Overbeek defeated Ramirez (4-6, 6-4, 6-1). Lacroix also earned a two-set win on the day as he defeated Rux (7-6(7), 6-1). Although the senior did not play his best this weekend, Jackson No. 1 player. “We know the team rests on his shoulders,” he said. “I think he can play better, but he’s 4-0 so far and you can’t do better than 4-0.” 16, ALLIGATOR MONDAY, JANUARY 24, 2011 PETER HUTTON | January 25, 7 p.m.Hutton is known for creating majestic cinematic portraits of cityscapes, landscapes and seascapes around the world.
