GAINESVILLE CITY COMMISSION


Dog business put to sleep

By MEREDITH RUTLAND
Alligator Writer

The City Commission overturned an earlier rul
ing Thursday that allowed Bruce Baber to run his
cl '- J II ,i,, business from his house.
-The commission ruled 5-1 in favor of the appeal
with Commissioner Thomas Hawkins voting against
and Commissioner Randy Wells absent.
The commission decided that, since Baber didn't
have a permit to run his business from his house
when he started in 1987, the earlier ruling was incor-
rect.
Baber said that he was disappointed but will con-
tinue to care for his neighbors' dogs by taking them
to Northeast Park for walks.
He said he was upset that the appellants never
came to him with their complaints.
"They always had plenty of opportunity to work
with me as a human being, not as a lawsuit," he
said.
The Board of Adjustments ruled on Nov. 2 that
Baber could keep his neighbors' dogs because his
business started before an ordinance was put in
place in 1995 that forbid housing animals that are
not pets.
However, since Baber didn't have a home-busi-
ness permit then, his business was technically illegal.
He applied for a permit in 2006.
During the meeting, the Board of Adjustments
presented the case as the defendant and Michael
Bowe, who owns a house near Baber's, spoke as the
appellant. Bowe said he wasn't prepared for the city
to speak on his behalf.
Erica Anderson Alligator "The city staff was supposed to stay out of this,"
he said. "They advised us that they would not be in-
Michael Bowe speaks at the City Commission meeting Thursday evolved and they turned around and were proactive
to appeal the petition that would allow his neighbor, Bruce Baber,
to run a dog-walking business from his home. SEE COMMISSION, PAGE 4


EPA releases Koppers cleanup plan


Cleanup will take three years


By MORGAN WATKINS
Alligator Writer

After years of debate, the U.S. Envi-
ronmental Protection Agency has finally
released an official cleanup plan that will
eliminate the Cabot-Koppers Superfund
site pollution that has plagued Alachua
County for decades.
On Wednesday, the EPA released its
Record of Decision, a 703-page document
explaining the remedial treatment options
selected for use on the area.


The agency based its decisions partly
on the suggestions of the Local Intergov-
ernmental Team, which included mem-
bers of the Alachua County Health De-
partment,Alachua County Environmental
Protection Department,
Local Gainesville City Manager's
News Office and Gainesville Re-
gional Utilities.
The document includes plans to re-
move and replace contaminated sediment
along Springstead and Hogtown creeks
and to install a vertical, 65-foot-deep bar-


rier wall beneath an engineered cap that
will cover the section of contaminated soil
consolidation at the site.
Contaminated groundwater in the Up-
per Floridan Aquifer will also be treated,
and monitoring wells will be installed to
monitor its condition over time.
The EPA must now finalize a consent
decree with the responsible party, Beazer
East, and get it court-approved before
cleanup can begin, said Scott Miller, a rep-
resentative for EPA region four.
The process should take between six
months and a year to complete, with an-

Police say


professor


defrauded


university

* HE USED A UF CREDIT CARD TO
FUND TRIPS TO MALAYSIA.

By KAT BEIN
Alligator Staff Writer

A UF professor was arrested Jan. 27 by
University Police on charges of funding trips
to Malaysia on a UF credit card as far back as
2008, according to the police report.
Dov Borovsky, 67, worked in the Florida
Medical Entomology Lab in Vero Beach, a
division of the UF Institute of Food and Ag-
ricultural Science.
According to the UPD report, Borovsky
used his university card to pay for three sep-
arate trips to Malaysia for a total of $7,071.28
over the course of two years.
Though he claimed the
trips as university business,
they were for an unrelated
job with EntoGenex Inter-
national Ltd., a Malaysian-
based company, according
t to the report.
Borovsky was reim-
Borovsky bursed a total of $85,000
over the years by EntoGenex, but kept the
money for his own personal gain, the report
stated.
His actions were discovered during a per-
sonal audit by the UF Office of Audit and
Compliance, the report stated.
Borovsky denied involvement with the
company until faced with documented proof,
at which point he said he had a relationship
with the company and kept the reimburse-
ments, as well as failed to report the com-
pensation and conflict of interest, the report
stated.
Borovsky is charged with felony theft and
fraud and has been placed on administrative
leave, said UF spokeswoman Janine Sikes.

Maryland burglary suspect's phone found at scene of the crime


SILVER SPRING, Md. - Police in Mary-
land arrested a man after finding his cell
phone charging at the scene of a burglary.
Now Montgomery County police say
25-year-old Cody Wilkins has been charged in
other burglaries.
It began when a homeowner's son arrived
as a burglar was going through rooms in the
home Friday. Startled, the burglar jumped out
a window and fled.
The son called police, who searched the


home and found a cell phone charging in
an electric socket. The phone led police to
Wilkins.
Police say Wilkins' home was among those
in the area that lost power last week when a
snowstorm moved through. Arrest records
say he's been linked to other break-ins.
Wilkins was brought to a Montgomery
County jail on $1 million bond. It wasn't clear
if he has an attorney.

PERSON OF THE WEEK

Designer prepares for Gainesville Fashion Week


By KAT BEIN
Alligator Staff Writer


Growing up, Bobby Kelley didn't come
from money. When back-to-school shopping
season came, he was forced to choose five
outfits and keep them nice all year.
But Kelley couldn't help himself; he had to
have something unique.
"I'm tired of this," he would say as he
"tailored" his outfits into new designs. "This
needs to change."
With a pair of scissors and a short sew-
ing lesson from his grandma, a designer was
born.
Now, the 28-year-old Gainesville-based
designer is readying himself for his five-year
anniversary as a force of runway fashion. He
will celebrate during this year's Gainesville
Fashion Week, another of ..I:I:/ K's" cre-
ations.
He started GFW with some friends as a
way to bring local artists together and have
a little fun.
"It's really all about community; that's
the number one thing," he said. "It's become
such a behemoth."
This year, Kelley will debut a line called
Robot 2.0, a collection of men's and women's
fashions merging metallic spandex with hints
of bondage. Local music and art, he said,
helped influence the concept.


Just a few weeks before, during Jackson-
ville Fashion Week, Kelley will show another
set of fashions inspired by 1950s working
women and gentlemen's club wear.
Creating two different collections for two
shows in one month is a lot of work. He's put-
ting the lines together by himself, constantly
hunched over his sewing machine.
But he knows the outcome is more than
worth it.
"I don't like to do the same thing over and
over," he said. "As an artist, the best thing to
do is keep reinventing yourself by doing new
things and exploring new options."
Kelley has been designing fashions as a
hobby for 12 years, but even as a child he had
an obsession with clothes. He used to take his
father's tube socks and turn them into "or-
nate, crew sock ballgowns" for his miniature
Barbie doll models.
In high school, he took a portfolio art class
with a friend and started designing for life-
size humans.
Now, he's on the verge of a deal to mass-
produce his clothes. He is looking forward to
his line being sold in boutiques across Florida
and, soon, across the United States, always at
affordable prices.
"I hate the notion of a designer dress cost-
ing thousands of dollars," he said. "That
blows my mind. I want to keep everything in
a good price range so people can buy it."


Because Bobby K. knows it's the people ing something unique," he said of his buyers.
who make the fashion, and fashion is for the "I put a lot of thought into everything when I
people. make it. I want someone to be like, I'm wear-
"I just hope that they realize they're wear- ing something that is special to someone."

Renewable energy tour to make stop in Gainesville


The tour will promote solar panels, biomass


By ALEX ORLANDO
Alligator Writer

Mike Antheil has three goals
in mind when he comes to
Gainesville: solar panels on every
rooftop, biomass _i,.-_ - - from ev-
ery farm and renewable i ..... - on
every property.
Antheil, executive director of
the Florida Alliance for Renew-
able Energy, plans to make that


happen with the Florida Renew-
able Energy Tour, a 10-stop trek
across the state from Feb. 10 to
Feb. 26.
The tour is set to stop in
Gainesville Feb. 25.
With the tour scheduled just be-
fore the upcoming legislative ses-
sion on March 8, he said he hopes
to change minds and policy.
On the itinerary are three
stops at solar electricity provid-
ers around the city, followed by a


"Gainesville is absolutely
the best place in the state
of Florida for solar energy."

Energy board member

a town-hall-style meeting at the
Pugh Hall Ocora.


The specific solar electricity
providers have not been named
yet, said Don Ryan, tour coordi-
nator.
But Gainesville renewable en-
ergy may not be too hard to sway,
said Don Davis, a board member
for the Florida Alliance for Re-
newable Energy.
"Gainesville is absolutely the
best place in the state of Florida
for solar,- i,.-, - "Davis said, men-
tioning the fact that Gainesville is
the first city in the U.S. to adopt
the Feed-In Tariff program, in


which GRU purchases solar ener-
gy from residents who have solar
panels at twice the cost of what it
sells the ,_,._, .
Ryan said he hopes to inspire
policies like Gainesville's in other
cities along the tour, including Mi-
ami, Tampa and Orlando.
"We hope what people take
away is a clear message that Flor-
ida needs renewable i..... - poli-
cy," Ryan said.
The tour is free to the public.

other two years allotted to conduct
cleanup efforts.
The document is the EPA's final
cleanup plan, and the county doesn't
have legal options to combat it if it
doesn't meet all its recommendations,
said Chris Bird, director of the county
environmental protection department.
Bird hopes the EPA will begin the
cleanup process as quickly as possible


and that the agency will focus on first
improving polluted residential prop-
erties.
The work on private homes should
be easier and faster than work on the
actual site, which will require more ex-
pensive and technical cleanup meth-
ods, he said.
The county's environmental pro-
tection department and other agencies
will evaluate the plan to see which
recommendations were accepted and
which were overlooked.

Bowe said he doesn't disagree with neigh-
bors' assertions that Baber is a nice guy.
"We're not here for personalities," he said.
"This is about principles, not personalities."
He said the Board of Adjustment's ruling
set a bad precedent that could come back to
haunt the commission.
Commissioner Warren Nielsen agreed.
"Our charge is really to be consistent," he
said.
The Bowes left the meeting before they
could be reached for further comment.
The commission voted unanimously to re-
fer to a committee to look into changing land


development codes to allow dogs that aren't
pets on residential property.
Baber's lawyer, Sondra Randon, said that
they will pursue changing the codes, but that
wasn't the path they were looking to take.
"We'll go back to the drawing board," she
said.
Baber said he knows most of his neighbors
very well, but he barely
Gainesville City knows the Bowes. Baber
Commission said he's resolved com-
plaints they've told him
about, such as an ugly fence, but they haven't

Team discovers new planets


* UF RESEARCHERS DISCOVERED SIX
NEW PLANETS 2,000 LIGHT-YEARS AWAY.

By HANNAH WINSTON
Alligator Writer
Finding a new planet isn't the kind of thing that's
traditionally on a scientist's daily itinerary. In the
realm of science, its like winning a Super Bowl,
meeting the pope and finding an extra $10 in your
jeans all wrapped into one.
Eric Ford and his team found six.
Ford, an associate professor of astronomy at UF,
along with Althea Moorhead, a postdoctoral associ-
ate, and graduate student Robert Morehead, is part
of the UF research team associated with a NASA
mission that recently confirmed finding six planets
orbiting the star Kepler-11.
"It was more like four eureka moments," Ford
said. "It was three planets, then four planets, then
five planets, then finally six."
Using a method called transit-timing, they were
able to measure irregularities in light given off by the
star, proving plants were orbiting around it.
Scientists and astronomers use the data collected
from the Kepler spacecraft to interpret and find ir-
regularities in light given off by the stars using its
photometer, or light meter, to measure the bright-
ness of stars.
Of the six planets, five are larger than Earth but


smaller than Neptune, and one is about the size of
Jupiter. The planets are located 2,000 light-years
away from Earth.
That distance makes it more extraordinary, he
explained, because its one of the farthest systems to
have a potential for water on the surface.
Five of the planets have orbits around the star
that could fit inside Mercury's orbit. The shortest
orbit was 10.3 days, he said. This also made the dis-
covery faster to confirm, with only a little more than
a year of data collected.
"We're really looking forward
to the next few years," he said.
Ford has been involved since
2007 when he was chosen along
with nine other scientists to work
with the project. Though the pro]-
ect had been min the works since
the 1980s, the Kepler spacecraft
Ford left Earth min March 2009.
Since then, the Kepler space-
craft has identified 1,235 potential planets, 15 of
which have been confirmed, according to Ford.
The mission costs $600 million, including the
spacecraft, and about $360,000 is given to UF, Ford
said. The mission is supposed to last a little more
than three years.
But Ford said there is enough space between the
fifth planet and the outer-lying sixth planet for more
planets to fit.
"We still might find another one," he said.

Editorial
Our friends up north may be buried in feet of snow, but
we've got avalanches of a different sort on our hands. Feb-
ruary brings with it a cascade of papers, exams and proj-
ects designed to clog our rooms with a blizzard of notes
and handouts. As we dig ourselves out, we bring you the
we're-shaking-because-of-our-caffeine-dependency-not-
the-weather edition of...



Darts & Laurels

We're not the only ones with a debilitating addiction,
though.
Charlie Sheen is back in rehab, putting his show "Two
and a Half Men" on hiatus. While we applaud anything
that rids us of that sad excuse for a sitcom, we're launch-
ing a life's-imitating-art-with-this-Ferris-Bueller-bad-boy
DART at Charlie Sheen. His inability to control himself
means his crew is out of work and his fans out of episodes
to watch.
They could always switch to the news.
For a week, the story that's dominated most national
and international outlets is the revolt in Egypt. With that
much attention, media organizations sent journalists to in-
vestigate the riots. However, reporters are being detained
and being forced to cough up their cameras as they record
history in the making.
For harming our brethren, both foreign and American,
we're firing a messing-with-the-media-is-a-surefire-way-
to-piss-off-protesters-even-more DART at the Egyptian
authorities.
They sure aren't winning any Nobel Peace Prizes. But
WikiLeaks might.
A Norwegian lawmaker nominated the website for the
award because it has exposed war crimes and corruption.
He says anyone keeping governments accountable in this
way deserves a prize.
For recognizing the role the Internet can play in mak-
ing the world more peaceful, we're giving a maybe-we-
shouldn't-shoot-the-messenger-after-all LAUREL to
Snorre Valen. The site probably won't win, but it's a step
in the right direction.
Embracing technology can be a good idea, especially
when it can help the environment a little. That's why we
roll our eyes every time a new Yellow Pages shows up on
our doorstep and why we were happy to hear 1.5 million
of the obsolete books may stop making their all-too-quick
trips into trash cans.
For considering making telephone books an opt-in
publication, we're sending a LAUREL to San Francisco's
Board of Supervisors President David Chiu.
While his proposed legislation may raise the issue of
constitutionality, it won't come to rival the debate over
health care reform. We've come to accept that we have to
give the rarest award, a here-we-go-again LART, to Judge
Roger Vinson, who deemed the law's individual mandate
unconstitutional.
We wanted to give him a laurel for his careful legal con-
sideration of the situation with an eye on our rights, but
we couldn't help but consider a dart for reminding us how
difficult it will be to fix a broken system with warring par-
ties in office.
It's giving us headaches thinking about it.
For lightening our mood, we're giving a silhouetted
LAUREL to Punxsutawney Phil's shadow.
Thanks for taking Wednesday off.
Until next time, remember that spring is around the
corner, Gators. A little grc.i.,l,. .. told us so.

Column

Bill of Rights does'
Conservative thinkers could see this coming before
President Obama was even elected.
Obama's perspective on the Constitution made
it easy to forecast events such as what happened Mon-
day, when Judge Roger Vinson, a federal district judge
in Pensacola, ruled that the federal health care reform bill
("Cl ,, i:.: . ) unconstitutional.
In a campaign speech, Obama criticized the Bill of
Rights for being "negative rights." That is, it states only
what the federal government cannot do. Obama's concern
was that we should be governed by a bill of rights which
includes what the government can do to its citizens.
The most obnoxious part of the Bill of Rights to the
liberal agenda is the 10th Amendment, which says, "The
powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitu-
tion, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the
States respectively, or to the people."
That is, the federal government has no authority other
than that which explicitly falls within the boundaries set
by the Constitution.
And Obamacare violates those boundaries.
The provision within the legislation that resulted in
the judicial ruling was that of mandated coverage. If the
bill were to go into effect, millions of currently uninsured
Americans would be forced to purchase a health insurance
plan or else pay a fine to the federal government.
And nowhere in the Constitution is the federal govern-
ment given the authority to force the citizens to buy any-
thing.
This is a point liberals need to consider carefully.
The Constitution and Bill of Rights were written and
adopted as so-called "negative rights" for good reason.
The founders of this country were well aware that, in the
ebb and flow of partisanship and public sentiment, those
within the government may from time to time be tempted
to make sweeping changes in response to a given situation

t know party lines
or issue.
The negative rights were de-
signed to prevent that, regardless
of party. The safeguards on govern-
ment intervention are necessary to
keep politicians on both sides of the
Bob Minchin aisle from foisting unjust mandates
letters@alligatororg on American citizens.
If a politically motivated Supreme
Court decision overturns Judge Vin-
son, or if President Obama unlawfully forges ahead with
his plan, then a precedent will be set. Powers given to the
government will remain with the government, in this ad-
ministration and all which -.11.. .
Thus, the president and Congress will have the power
to force Americans to buy something whether they want
it or not.
Think about that.
If, for example, Sarah Palm were to be elected and de-
cide that everyone needed to own a firearm, this precedent
would enable her to push through legislation that would
require all Americans to purchase a gun whether they
wanted to or not.
Liberals often fall to consider unintended consequenc-
es. They should carefully consider the results of their ten-
dency to respond to every issue by giving as much power
as possible to a government that will not always be on
their side ideologically.
The Constitution, with its negative rights, ensures that
no matter who is in power, the rights of the American citi-
zen remain unchanged.
Conservatives and liberals alike should be grateful for
judges like Vinson who courageously defend those rights,
regardless of the political climate.

Letters to the Editor
Second Amendment is here to stay
In response to Wednesday's letter, "Sec-
ond Amendment needs another look," I feel
like re-examining the Second Amendment
is old hat. Grundy stated the age-old anti-
gun activists argument of the "conditional
clause." Sir, the Second Amendment has
had another look. In fact, the Supreme Court
has directly ruled "no" on it fewer than five
times, plus four indirect rulings. Each word
has been broken down and clearly defined.
I'm happy to say that the Supreme Court has
not taken the same view as you. I think the

Federal funding should be steered away
from Planned Parenthood
In response to Wednesday's "Two to Tan-
go," I wanted to address your levity in what
should be a grave issue: Abortion and prosti-
tution should never be joking matters. First,
your semantics are deceptive because after


watching Live Action's 11-minute "conversa-
tion, " it is clear Live Action's intent is not as
"anti-abortion" as it is "pro-life" and pro-law
(unlike Planned Parenthood's foul employee
who dropped the f-bomb at least six times).
The behavior of this worker is morally rep-
rehensible by both our federal government
and the state of New Jersey. Certainly, the ex-
employee in the video "went against company
]. .1,.: " but if you dig a little deeper into Live
Action's work throughout the past three years,
you realize that this is not an isolated incident
in the company, which the video pointed out
received more than $300 million per year in


federal funding. It seems that if an organiza-
tion is unable to monitor employees who are
consistently breaking federal and state statutes,
perhaps tax dollars should be steered away
from supporting potential company hazards.
It seems Planned Parenthood has gotten itself
in a tight spot, and Lila Rose's incredible ini-
tiative to utilize social media is finally forcing
them to reconsider their inability to smooth
out what is rightfully the most controversial
issue on our nation's conscience.

Academy Awards will feel effects of marginalizing minorities


When marginalized people lament the lack of diver-
sity on the big screen, a common, though patron-
izing, retort is they need not seek validation from
the entertainment industry. Hollywood is as quintessentially
American as - .. -rl: :ll It is a staple of our culture and if peo-
ple of color are not represented, they might as well not exist.
Although some might have been hopeful after the Academy
Awards last year when Mo'Nique took home the Oscar for
Best Supporting Actress for her role in "Precious" and Kath-
ryn Bigelow became the first woman to win Best Director for
the "The Hurt Locker," others were rightfully trepidatious.
While it was exciting to see Mo'Nique recognized, one must
wonder why it took such a dark role for her to earn the ac-
colade.The problem with the Hollywood machine is that it
continues to typecast people of color. This is evident in the
mid-season replacement "Harry's Law" by the wildly popu-
lar David E. Kelley. While the show has endearing qualities
and witty writing, the supporting characters of color deify
negative stereotypes of drug addiction, poverty and help-
lessness. Kelley is one of the best writers and producers in
television. But even if he, at times, misses the sociocultural
mark, the implications for lesser storytellers are harrowing. I
wonder if the gag about "a black man falling from the roof"
would have made the script had there been more voices of
color at the table.


Eva Mckend In an interview with "Complex"
UWire magazine, Michael B. Jordan ("The
Wire," "Friday Night Lights"), by far
the most promising star of my genera-
tion, reflected on the challenges of being a young black actor
in a white- dominated industry. "There are still a lot of white
writers writing for black people, and there's always going to
be a lot of stuff lost in translation," he said. The 23-year-old
acknowledged he felt a responsibility to speak out against
mischaracterizations especially in a business that relegates
black talent to a "crab-in-a-barrel mentality." In response
to the criticism The Academy will receive throughout this
award season for what many are deeming "the whitest Os-
cars in a decade," we will hear the old excuse that there was
merely not enough talent of color to chose from. Filmmaker
Ava DuVernay, who was cited in several recent articles about
the lack of diversity, recently formed the African-American
Film Festival Releasing Movement, a campaign to widen the
distribution of black films. Her efforts and her mission are
compulsory in a field that treats people of color as if they
are invisible. However, one must wonder how long African
Americans will have to rely on their own mediums. In a so-
ciety where all races coexist, black people should not be lim-
ited to black media.
Alicia Niwagaba '11 argues that people of color don't


o'--' - II, receive roles that would garner them critical
praise. She cites her frustration with films like "The Social
Network" (nominated for eight Academy Awards) that cast
a white actor to play an Indian man. "I have a hard time
believing there was not one Indian actor who fit that role. It
was a small part but it just exemplifies what is wrong with
casting and the film industry." Ultimately, Niwagaba main-
tains it is a numbers game. "Studios don't think audiences
want to see films with minorities or strong women, so films
about white people (especially men) are disproportionately
funded and supported."
The few times that people of color were celebrated were
what DuVernay described as anomalies. I . - p. I.. of color do
not receive awards unless we are degrading ourselves and
playing downtrodden characters," Niwagaba said. "We are
always represented as the other, something to be pitied, nev-
er triumphant and never strong. It just shows you what kind
of narrative Hollywood wants to maintain."
The diversity that we represent in America will be the
diversity illustrated around the world. If The Academy con-
tinues to ostracize certain voices, they will make themselves
an irrelevant program. We don't have to look any further
than the Miss America pageant to see that viewers can easily
outgrow award ceremonies if they lose touch with reality.

UF ROUNDUP

Gators swim teams sweep weekly SEC awards


By MELISSA PENDER
Alligator Writer

Florida became the second school
since 2008 to win all four weekly
Southeastern Conference awards af-
ter a stellar meet against Tennessee
on Saturday and a sweep of Indian
River State College on Sunday.
Senior Conor Dwyer took SEC
Male Swimmer of the Week for a
record fifth time this season, and
freshman Elizabeth Beisel earned
SEC Female Swimmer of the Week
for a record fourth. The SEC Male
and Female Freshman of the Week
honors went to Marcin Cieslak and
Hilda Luthersdottir.


"It's always good having quality
athletes, and [the award] was well
deserved in all four parts," UF coach
Gregg Troy said.
Troy said the meet against Ten-
nessee, UF's most
lopsided dual
victory over the
Volunteers in
history, showed
how talented the
Gators are.
Dwyer was
also named the
Dwyer Counsilman-
Hunsaker National Collegiate Male
Swimmer of the Week for Jan. 25-
31 by C .l'. .I . i-- ""' ... He


broke this season's NCAA record in
the 400-yard individual medley with
a time of 3:44.73 against Tennessee.

TRACK TEAMS HEADING TO ELITE
MEET: The women's track and
field team is not ranked like the
No. 1 men, but it is motivated to
change that.
The women had one winner
- freshman Ebony Eutsey in the
400-meter dash - and 10 top-five
finishes at the Texas A&M Chal-
lenge despite sending a team of
mostly freshmen and sophomores.
Track and Field News ranked the
Florida women's recruiting class as
the country's No. 7 group last year


and the second-best unit in the SEC.
"Hopefully, we'll be right beside
(the men) this year, if not above
them," freshman Brittany Harrell
said. "We'll do really well because
we came in ranked high, and we
have high expectations as a result."
Except for a women's distance
medley relay heading to New York,
UF will compete in the two-day Vir-
ginia Tech Elite meet this weekend.
The women previously placed
first (2009) and second (2010) at the
SEC Outdoor Tournament.
"The big thing with our freshmen
is that we do a good job of reloading
so we don't have to rebuild," Gators
coach Mike Holloway said. "They're


here, we recruited them here, and
we expect big things out of them.
Harrell competed in her first-
ever collegiate meet last week, and
Eutsey tried her hand at running in-
doors for the first time. Harrell and
Eutsey both say that as they mature,
they will begin to perform at an even
higher level.
"Practicing with people that are
very competitive like myself has
been a learning experience," Eutsey
said. "Actually being able to practice
with somebody who is running right
beside me or in front of me pushing
me to get better has been a big tran-
sition for me."

Caquatto to debut as all-arounder against Alabama


* THE GATORS WILL HOST A BATTLE OF
UNDEFEATED TEAMS TONIGHT.

By ALLISON BANK
Alligator Writer

Both squads will roll into the O'Connell Center with un-
shaken records.
Each team is fresh off season-high totals and has gymnasts
ranking among the nation's top all-around competitors.
Despite all their accomplishments, and their undefeated re-
cords, either No. 1 Florida or No. 6 Alabama will have to take a
hit as the two square off in the O'Connell Center tonight at 7.
Florida will feature its familiar all-arounders, sophomore
Ashan&e Dickerson (No. 4 in the nation) and freshman Alaina
Johnson (No. 5). They will face Crimson Tide junior Geralen
Stack-Eaton, the No. 2 all-arounder in the nation, and senior
Kayla Hoffman (No. 8), who was named the Southeastern Con-
ference Gymnast of the Week.


In addition to Johnson and Dickerson, the Gators will unveil
a new, first-time all-arounder.
Freshman Mackenzie Caquatto has racked up more events
by the week, and she will collect her fourth against Alabama
with the addition of vault.
"This is my first time doing all-around, so I'm not expecting
too much of myself," Caquatto said. "I'm just going to go out
there and try to hit my routines to the best
of my ability, the best that I can do. I just
want to do like I do in practice and then
work up from there."
Gymnastics Caquatto set herself up for success, as
her performances earned her second place
in bars, beam and floor last week.
Caquatto said she is not going to enter this meet any differ-
ently than the others, even though the team knows the Tide will
throw down more competition than the Gators have faced.
"Wejust have to stay in our bubble," Caquatto said. "[Coach]
Rhonda [Faehn] always tells us, 'Stay in our bubble. Stay with
the team. Focus on what you and the team are doing.'"


Dickerson remembered it was just that team mentality that
pulled the squad ahead of Alabama when they faced off at the
2010 SEC Championships.
At the start of the competition, Alabama looked to be the
favorite as it shined on vault and the Gators had what Faehn
described as their "worst vaulting performance of the year."
"They had a strong start on vault, and I guess they didn't
keep it going," Dickerson said. "We didn't have a strong start
on vault, but we stayed together as a team. You can't start re-
ally, really high and then just going down because you use all
your ,I .- _ - up on one event. You have to stay consistent on all
four events to come out with a win."
That's what the Gators did, pulling out the victory for the
title. Faehn said the team needs to focus just as well when en-
tering competition throughout the season.
"That's really what we're working on for this year," she
said. "Our mental strength, our mental toughness and focus-
ing on the fact that there are going to be a few mistakes here
and there, but it's how you respond to them that shows your
true success."

Boynton, Knight to reunite in O'Dome

* THE TWO WERE AAU TEAMMATES.

By GREG LUCA
Alligator Staff Writer
gluca@alligator org

Kenny Boynton will once again be face-to-
face with an old friend and bitter rival Satur-
day.
After two years of amateur national cham-
pionships and high school grudge matches,
Boynton and Brandon Knight went their sepa-
rate ways.
But the duo will share a court when Florida
(17-5, 6-2 Southeastern Conference) plays host
to Knight and No. 10 Kentucky (16-5 4-3 SEC)
at 9 p.m. with bragging rights and conference
supremacy on the line.
"We try to make each other better," Boyn-
ton said. "We compete on the court, and then
when it's over, it's over. Pretty much our focus
coming into the game is to win and try to not
think about the matchup."
Although Boynton is trying to keep his per-
sonal history with Knight on the backburner,
the reunion has been a popular topic leading
up to the game.
When the two played together on Team
Breakdown, they took home back-to-back 17U
AAU National Championships.
Once the summer season ended, the duo
returned to the high school hardwood, with
Boynton at Plantation American Heritage and
Knight at Fort Lauderdale Pine Crest.
The two teams faced off seven times min a
two-year span, with Knight's squad coming
out on top on four occasions.
The most notable of those was the last, a 61-
59 wmin for Pine Crest min the Class 3A regional
semifinals. Knight scored 26 points, and Boyn-
ton notched 20 but missed a game-tying free
throw min the closing moments.
While their relationship has grown stale as
the gap between the two has widened, Boyn-
ton and Knight are still friends who once spoke
on an almost daily basis.
That close connection made a number of
waves a season ago, when Boynton was out-
spoken min his desire to bring UF the class of f
2010's No. 6 overall player, according to Rivals. Matt Tripp/ Alligator Staff
com.
Florida coach Billy Donovan also expressed UF guard Kenny Boynton will square off with former high school rival and AAU

Today's question: Who do you

Gators men's basketball team?


Ole Miss


edges UF

By MATT WATTS
Alligator Writer

Despite losing its star player in the
second half, Ole Miss still found a way
to beat Florida on Thursday night in the
O'Connell Center.
The Rebels were able to overcome
the absence of senior guard Kayla Mel-
son, who left the game after .:.ll.Jii,
with a teammate and suffering concus-
sion-like symptoms, as well as a furi-
ous, late charge by the Gators to hold
on for the 61-59 victory.
Even with some late-game theatrics,
Florida (14-10,4-6 Southeastern Confer-
ence) didn't lose this matchup in crunch
time - it was lost on the boards. Ole
Miss (10-11, 3-6 SEC) dominated the
glass with 16 offensive rebounds and
multiple second-chance opportunities.
"I thought that was the deciding fac-
tor in the game," coach Amanda Butler
said. "Their offensive rebounding sus-
tained them. ... Those guys just crushed
us. They crushed our post players on
the inside."
The Gators never
held a lead in the
game, but they put
Women's themselves in posi-
Basketball tion for a come-from-
behind victory in the
closing minutes.
Florida was down by 12 points with
just over six minutes to play, but it put
together a 16-4 run to tie the game at 56
with 1:03 left on the clock.
As she had done all evening, Ole Miss
guard Valencia McFarland stepped up
and delivered, driving to the basket and
dishing to a wide-open Pa'Sonna Hope
for the go-ahead score.
Ole Miss defended well on the other
end, and freshman guard Jaterra Bonds
was forced to put up a three-point at-
tempt with 12 seconds left. It didn't fall,
and the Rebels clinched just their sec-
ond win in eight games.
Taking over at the point for Melson,
McFarland finished with a game-high
20 points and six assists.
"I'm real sad she's a freshman and
we're going to have to play against her
for three more years," Butler said of the
Rebels guard.

rookie cop, was leaving his precinct house
at 8 a.m. when he spotted Joe Namath.
After what was obviously a rough
night, "Broadway Joe" was exiting the
side entrance of the Grand Summit Hotel.
Namath's famed right arm was draped
around the shoulder of a charming young
creature in go-go boots. The Dublin-born
Timoney recognized a hangover when he
saw one.
Jackpot: Timoney had coveted inside
information. In just five hours, the Jets
would play Oakland for the AFC Champi-
onship at Shea Stadium. Timoney scram-
bled to a pay phone.
He pressed his brother to "send it in"
on Oakland.
In the most physical game Namath ever
played, he led the Jets past the Raiders and
into the Super Bowl 27-23.
The rookie cop blew his rent money.
Another friend, Red, is a bookmaker.
These days, computers take all the ac-
tion. Many of Red's Wall Street customers
subscribe to high-priced betting services.
Before games, Red checks his computer
to see what teams he needs and for how
much.
Because he sees his customer's bets, Red
has free access to all his players' sports


handicapping services for free. Not one ex-
pensive betting service, but four, yet even
he can't make money gambling.
That's the bottom line: inside informa-
tion, both sides of the law, both losers.
Here's a gambler's perspective of the
game.
Toughness of schedule, injuries and ev-
erything else a handicapper thinks about
have already been figured into the line.
Early prognosticators had this game
as a pick-em, but that didn't happen. The
Packers settled into championship week-
end as minus $140 to $100 favorites.
After Pittsburgh beat the Jets, the line
Sunday night opened Packers minus-2, or
minus-2.5.
Bookies love this line.
Because scores don't usually fall on
these numbers, bookies can seesaw back
and forth between 2 and 2.5 to balance
money.
On gameday, dumpsters full of money
couldn't get Vegas to move off a line the
number usually falls on such as: 3, 4, 7, 8,
10 or 11.
Corporations concocted a way to pump
more money into the system. If you bet the
game, or the total, you can "purchase" half
a point.
So, let's say you like the underdog, and
the line is 5.5. Instead of betting $110 to


win $100, Vegas "allows" you to wager
$120 to win $100. This makes your bet
more attractive at plus-6 but costs you
"double juice."
Here's where corporations really get
cute.
This year's Super Bowl line is 2.5. No
one who likes the Packers will risk double
juice to buy a half-point and lay a 2 instead
of a 2.5. But if a bettor likes Pittsburgh, the
plot thickens.
Underdog bettors crave that plus-3.
That's a number that could save their asses.
But CEOs who run casinos know this, so
they charge triple juice. That's right, $130
to win $100 if you want Pittsburgh plus-
3. I also see a plus-3 at minus $125. They
might as well put a gun to your head.
As of yet, the only money bet on Sun-
day's game has been "smart" money. The
general public won't pour cash into this
contest until gameday. Regardless of how
much money comes in on the Pack, I can't
see this line going to 3.5.
It's bookmaking 101. Don't get "mid-
dled."
Middled means that if Vegas open Pack-
ers minus-2.5, I bet Green Bay early and
lay 2.5. Later, I wait until the line goes up,
and I bet Pittsburgh plus-3.5. If the game
falls 3, I win both ways. I've middled the
spread.


Bookies get killed. I recall that hap-
pening twice: Dallas-Pittsburgh, 1976 (the
game fell 4) and Green Bay-New England,
1997 (the game fell 14).
When this happens, bookies scramble
to find a ledge. They literally have to wait
in line to jump. The only thing bookies fear
worse than getting riddled on the Super
Bowl is if the "number" 317 falls on Pad-
dy's Day.
They wake up screaming over that. For
the sheltered and uninformed among you,
I'll save "numbers" for another time, but
remember this:
If people behind betting services could
predict winners, they wouldn't sell infor-
mation or write columns. They'd do as you
or I would. They'd sit in bed all day with
cell phones and high-priced company sip-
ping champagne.
When Wilson manufactures square
-.....r|l: ,1, when rubber no longer bounces,
then "experts" will pick winners. Until
then, embed your cash in your hands, and
keep those hands in your pockets.

Lacroix receives SEC honor as UF prepares for UCF, FSU


By THOMAS NASSIFF
Alligator Writer

When the No. 7 Florida men's
tennis team takes on two of its in-
state rivals this weekend, it will be
led by the reigning Southeastern
Conference Player of the Week.
Alexandre Lacroix received the
honor Wednesday after an impres-
sive performance in the ITA Kick-
Off Weekend tournament. Lacroix
is 4-0 in singles and doubles this
year.


He will carry the Gators in to-
day's match against UCF, which
will be the team's last February ap-
pearance in Linder Stadium at Ring
Tennis Complex.
After facing UCF, the Gators (4-
0) will hit the road for the first time
this spring to match up with rival
Florida State, ranked No. 27 in the
nation.
"Central Florida always plays us
tough," coach Andy Jackson said,
"and this is Florida State's best team
in four or five years."


The Seminoles' only two losses
were to No. 2 Southern California
and No. 6 UCLA, and Jackson said
it's an advantage
for FSU to have
played teams of
that quality.
"You can
throw out all the
rankings and
Lacroix record books
when it comes to
Florida-Florida State," Jackson said.
"We're prepared to take their best


shot."

UF READIES FOR BAYLOR: Third-
ranked Baylor will attempt to halt
the No. 2 UF women's tennis team's
94-game regular-season home win
streak on Saturday at 1 p.m.
The Bears are a different animal
than any team the Gators have faced
this spring, coach Roland Thorn-
qvist said.
"We've played some teams early
on who didn't really think they had
a shot at beating us," he said. "Bay-


lor is going to come here thinking
they can win, and they certainly
have a powerful lineup."
Baylor will feature three ranked
singles players to face Florida's for-
midable top three of Allie Will, Lau-
ren Embree and Sofie Oyen.
"We have a young team, so we
have to be ready, and it's going to be
interesting to see how we respond,"
Thornqvist said.
Florida will also host No. 56
Florida International on Sunday at
1 p.m.

interest in recruiting Knight, calling him a ter-
rific player with a great work ethic. However,
Donovan admits he did not think Knight was
truly considering Florida after his official visit
early in UF's season.
Donovan's suspicions turned out to be ac-
curate, as Knight eventually committed to the
Wildcats on April 14.
"I tried to get him to come here," Boyn-
ton said. "He liked it, but Kentucky, he felt
that was a better situation, so he chose to go
there."
Knight has put together a stellar freshman
season to this point, averaging 17.2 points, 4.1
rebounds and 3.8 assists per game.
"He's always been a smart player," Boyn-
ton said. "When he's on the court. he makes


the right plays. When he's open, he takes the
shot or tries to get to the rim, and when he
sees the open man, he's a great passer."
Boynton has played down the matchup
from an individual perspective, but he and
the rest of the team know
any game against Kentucky
is a big one, especially a
nationally televised game
M men's with GameDay in town.
Basketball The personal ties be-
BaskeWtall tween Boynton and Knight
only add to the frenzy.
"Every time we play Kentucky, everybody
is excited," senior forward Chandler Parsons
said. "Him growing up with him, playing
together on Team Breakdown, I'm sure he's
got some real excitement going through his
mind and I'm sure he's going to come ready
to play."

game, Butler said, and didn't score its
first points until close to three minutes
in. But the coach scoffed at the notion
her team lacked motivation.
"I don't know why there would be a
reason that we wouldn't be up for this
game - that's just incomprehensible to
me," she said.
The Gators shot poorly all evening
and finished 22 of 58 from the field. Ju-
nior guard Jordan Jones (eight points,
2-of-8 three-point shooting) said the
Rebels' zone defense allowed open


looks, but she admitted Florida also
forced some shots.
"It's never in our game plan just to
jack up a bunch of threes," Jones said of
Florida's 22 attempts from the outside. "I
took a lot and wish I had some of them
back."
While there were opportunities to
pull out an improbable win late in the
game, Jones said the team didn't do
enough to secure a victory.
"We showed good fight at the end,"
Jones said. "But to not have it there for 40
minutes against an SEC team ... there's
no excuse for that."

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 4, 2011 GAINESVILLE CITY COMMISSION Dog business put to sleep By MEREDITH RUTLAND Alligator Writer The City Commission overturned an earlier ruling Thursday that allowed Bruce Baber to run his dog-walking business from his house. The commission ruled 5-1 in favor of the appeal with Commissioner Thomas Hawkins voting against and Commissioner Randy Wells absent. The commission decided that, since Baber didn't have a permit to run his business from his house when he started in 1987, the earlier ruling was incorrect. Baber said that he was disappointed but will continue to care for his neighbors' dogs by taking them to Northeast Park for walks. He said he was upset that the appellants never came to him with their complaints. "They always had plenty of opportunity to work with me as a human being, not as a lawsuit," he said. The Board of Adjustments ruled on Nov. 2 that Baber could keep his neighbors' dogs because his business started before an ordinance was put in place in 1995 that forbid housing animals that are not pets. However, since Baber didn't have a home-business permit then, his business was technically illegal. He applied for a permit in 2006. During the meeting, the Board of Adjustments presented the case as the defendant and Michael Bowe, who owns a house near Baber's, spoke as the appellant. Bowe said he wasn't prepared for the city to speak on his behalf. "The city staff was supposed to stay out of this," Erica Anderson/ Alligator he said.

On Wednesday, the EPA released its Record of Decision, a 703-page document explaining the remedial treatment options selected for use on the area. The agency based its decisions partly on the suggestions of the Local Intergovernmental Team, which included members of the Alachua County Health DepartmentAlachuaCountyEnvironmental Protection Department, Local Gainesville City Manager's News Office and Gainesville Regional Utilities. The document includes plans to remove and replace contaminated sediment along Springstead and Hogtown creeks and to install a vertical, 65-foot-deep barrier wall beneath an engineered cap that will cover the section of contaminated soil consolidation at the site. Contaminated groundwater in the Upper Floridan Aquifer will also be treated, and monitoring wells will be installed to monitor its condition over time. The EPA must now finalize a consent decree with the responsible party, Beazer East, and get it court-approved before cleanup can begin, said Scott Miller, a representative for EPA region four.

By KAT BEIN Alligator Staff Writer A UF professor was arrested Jan. 27 by University Police on charges of funding trips to Malaysia on a UF credit card as far back as 2008, according to the police report. Dov Borovsky, 67, worked in the Florida Medical Entomology Lab in Vero Beach, a division of the UF Institute of Food and Agricultural Science. According to the UPD report, Borovsky used his university card to pay for three separate trips to Malaysia for a total of $7,071.28 over the course of two years. Borovsky Though he claimed the tnps as university business, they were for an unrelated job with EntoGenex International Ltd., a Malaysianbased company, according to the report. Borovsky was reimbursed a total of $85,000 over the years by EntoGenex, but kept the money for his own personal gain, the report stated. His actions were discovered during a personal audit by the UF Office of Audit and Compliance, the report stated. Borovsky denied involvement with the company until faced with documented proof, at which point he said he had a relationship with the company and kept the reimbursements, as well as failed to report the compensation and conflict of interest, the report stated. Borovsky is charged with felony theft and fraud and has been placed on administrative leave, said UF spokeswoman Janine Sikes. Maryland burglary suspect's phone found at scene of the crime SILVER SPRING, Md. -Police in Maryland arrested a man after finding his cell phone charging at the scene of a burglary. Now Montgomery County police say 25-year-old Cody Wilkins has been charged in other burglaries. It began when a homeowner's son arrived as a burglar was going through rooms in the home Friday. Startled, the burglar jumped out a window and fled. The son called police, who searched the home and found a cell phone charging in an electric socket. The phone led police to Wilkins. Police say Wilkins' home was among those in the area that lost power last week when a snowstorm moved through. Arrest records say he's been linked to other break-ins. Wilkins was brought to a Montgomery County jail on $1 million bond.

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 4, 2011E ALLIGATOR, 3 PERSON OF THE WEEK Designer prepares for Gainesville Fashion Week By KAT BEIN Alligator Staff Writer Growing up, Bobby Kelley didn't come from money. When back-to-school shopping season came, he was forced to choose five outfits and keep them nice all year. But Kelley couldn't help himself; he had to have something unique. "I'm tired of this," he would say as he "tailored" his outfits into new designs. "This needs to change." With a pair of scissors and a short sewing lesson from his grandma, a designer was born. Now, the 28-year-old Gainesville-based designer is readying himself for his five-year anniversary as a force of runway fashion. He will celebrate during this year's Gainesville Fashion Week, another of "Bobby K's" creations. He started GFW with some friends as a way to bring local artists together and have a little fun. "It's really all about community; that's the number one thing," he said. "It's become such a behemoth." This year, Kelley will debut a line called Robot 2.0, a collection of men's and women's fashions merging metallic spandex with hints of bondage. Local music and art, he said, helped influence the concept. Just a few weeks before, during Jacksonville Fashion Week, Kelley will show another set of fashions inspired by 1950s working women and gentlemen's club wear. Creating two different collections for two shows in one month is a lot of work. He's putting the lines together by himself, constantly hunched over his sewing machine. But he knows the outcome is more than worth it. "I don't like to do the same thing over and over," he said. "As an artist, the best thing to do is keep reinventing yourself by doing new things and exploring new options." Kelley has been designing fashions as a hobby for 12 years, but even as a child he had an obsession with clothes. He used to take his father's tube socks and turn them into "ornate, crew sock ballgowns" for his miniature Barbie doll models. In high school, he took a portfolio art class with a friend and started designing for lifesize humans. Now, he's on the verge of a deal to massproduce his clothes. He is looking forward to his line being sold in boutiques across Florida and, soon, across the United States, always at affordable prices. "I hate the notion of a designer dress costing thousands of dollars," he said. "That blows my mind. I want to keep everything in a good price range so people can buy it." Because Bobby K. knows it's the people who make the fashion, and fashion is for the people. "I just hope that they realize they're wearing something unique," he said of his buyers. "I put a lot of thought into everything when I make it. I want someone to be like, I'm wearing something that is special to someone." Jordan Streetzel / Alligator Bobby Kelley, a local designer and founder of Gainesville Fashion Week, works to finish collections for his upcoming runway shows. See more of his designs at bobby-k.com.

4, ALLIGATOR U FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 4,2011 Renewable energy tour to make stop in Gainesville The tour will promote solar panels, biomass By ALEX ORLANDO Alligator Writer Mike Antheil has three goals in mind when he comes to Gainesville: solar panels on every rooftop, biomass energy from every farm and renewable energy on every property. Antheil, executive director of the Florida Alliance for Renewable Energy, plans to make that happen with the Florida Renewable Energy Tour, a 10-stop trek across the state from Feb. 10 to Feb. 26. The tour is set to stop in Gainesville Feb. 25. With the tour scheduled just before the upcoming legislative session on March 8, he said he hopes to change minds and policy. On the itinerary are three stops at solar electricity providers around the city, followed by a "Gainesville is absolutely the best place in the state of Florida for solar energy." Don Davis Florida Alliance for Renewable Energy board member workshop at Santa Fe College and a town-hall-style meeting at the Pugh Hall Ocora. The specific solar electricity providers have not been named yet, said Don Ryan, tour coordinator. But Gainesville renewable energy may not be too hard to sway, said Don Davis, a board member for the Florida Alliance for Renewable Energy. "Gainesville is absolutely the best place in the state of Florida for solar energy," Davis said, mentioning the fact that Gainesville is the first city in the U.S. to adopt the Feed-In Tariff program, in which GRU purchases solar energy from residents who have solar panels at twice the cost of what it sells the energy. Ryan said he hopes to inspire policies like Gainesville's in other cities along the tour, including Miami, Tampa and Orlando. "We hope what people take away is a clear message that Florida needs renewable energy policy," Ryan said. The tour is free to the public. Participants can register at renewableenergyworld.com Cleanup should begin in a year EPA, from page 1 other two years allotted to conduct cleanup efforts. The document is the EPA's final cleanup plan, and the county doesn't have legal options to combat it if it doesn't meet all its recommendations, said Chris Bird, director of the county environmental protection department. Bird hopes the EPA will begin the cleanup process as quickly as possible and that the agency will focus on first improving polluted residential properties. The work on private homes should be easier and faster than work on the actual site, which will require more expensive and technical cleanup methods, he said. The county's environmental protection department and other agencies will evaluate the plan to see which recommendations were accepted and which were overlooked. He ran the business from his home COMMISSION, from page 1 against us." Bowe said he doesn't disagree with neighbors' assertions that Baber is a nice guy. "We're not here for personalities," he said. "This is about principles, not personalities." He said the Board of Adjustment's ruling set a bad precedent that could come back to haunt the commission. Commissioner Warren Nielsen agreed. "Our charge is really to be consistent," he said. The Bowes left the meeting before they could be reached for further comment. The commission voted unanimously to refer to a committee to look into changing land development codes to allow dogs that aren't pets on residential property. Baber's lawyer, Sondra Randon, said that they will pursue changing the codes, but that wasn't the path they were looking to take. "We'll go back to the drawing board," she said. Baber said he knows most of his neighbors very well, but he barely Gainesville City knows the Bowes. Baber said he's resolved complaints they've told him about, such as an ugly fence, but they haven't tried to work with him. "They only have an interest in destroying a human being who's doing a lot of good in the community," he said. We are seeking volunteers for a study of muscle and jaw function.

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 4,2011E ALLIGATOR, 5 Team discovers new planets UF RESEARCHERS DISCOVERED SIX NEW PLANETS 2,000 LIGHT-YEARS AWAY. By HANNAH WINSTON Alligator Writer Finding a new planet isn't the kind of thing that's traditionally on a scientist's daily itinerary. In the realm of science, its like winning a Super Bowl, meeting the pope and finding an extra $10 in your jeans all wrapped into one. Eric Ford and his team found six. Ford, an associate professor of astronomy at UF, along with Althea Moorhead, a postdoctoral associate, and graduate student Robert Morehead, is part of the UF research team associated with a NASA mission that recently confirmed finding six planets orbiting the star Kepler-11. "It was more like four eureka moments," Ford said. "It was three planets, then four planets, then five planets, then finally six." Using a method called transit-timing, they were able to measure irregularities in light given off by the star, proving plants were orbiting around it. Scientists and astronomers use the data collected from the Kepler spacecraft to interpret and find irregularities in light given off by the stars using its photometer, or light meter, to measure the brightness of stars. Of the six planets, five are larger than Earth but smaller than Neptune, and one is about the size of Jupiter. The planets are located 2,000 light-years away from Earth. That distance makes it more extraordinary, he explained, because it's one of the farthest systems to have a potential for water on the surface. Five of the planets have orbits around the star that could fit inside Mercury's orbit. The shortest orbit was 10.3 days, he said. This also made the discovery faster to confirm, with only a little more than a year of data collected. "We're really looking forward to the next few years," he said. Ford has been involved since 2007 when he was chosen along with nine other scientists to work with the project. Though the project had been in the works since the 1980s, the Kepler spacecraft Ford left Earth in March 2009. Since then, the Kepler spacecraft has identified 1,235 potential planets, 15 of which have been confirmed, according to Ford. The mission costs $600 million, including the spacecraft, and about $360,000 is given to UF, Ford said. The mission is supposed to last a little more than three years. But Ford said there is enough space between the fifth planet and the outer-lying sixth planet for more planets to fit. "We still might find another one," he said. Vegas magicians to perform act at UF By ANGELA RIBBLER Alligator Contributing Writer Las Vegas magicians Penn and Teller have been making people laugh, cringe and gasp by sawing people in half, cracking jokes and exposing fraud for 30 years. On Wednesday, the comedic tricksters will perform at the Phillips Center for the Performing Arts at 7:30 p.m. The show will be free and open to the public. Penn and Teller were chosen to perform because they combine entertainment and prominence, said Corey Portnoy, Accent's chief of staff. Penn and Teller have written three best-selling books, received 11 Emmy nominations for their television series "Penn & Teller: Bullshit!" and recently celebrated the fifth year of their Las Vegas show at the Rio AllSuite Hotel & Casino, according to the Penn and Teller website. In Gainesville, On their performance will consist of question-andanswer audience participation, as well as demonstrations of illusions and tncks, said Glenn Alai, executive director of the show. Accent is paying $57,500 to bnng Penn and Teller to UF, said Zack Goldstein, chairman of Accent in an e-mail. How would you score on Test Day? Saturday, February 19th On Campus at UF!

6, ALLIGATOR U FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 4,2011 Our friends up north may be buried in feet of snow, but we've got avalanches of a different sort on our hands. February brings with it a cascade of papers, exams and projects designed to clog our rooms with a blizzard of notes and handouts. As we dig ourselves out, we bring you the we're-shaking-because-of-our-caffeine-dependency-notthe-weather edition of. Darts & Laurels We're not the only ones with a debilitating addiction, though. Charlie Sheen is back in rehab, putting his show "Two and a Half Men" on hiatus. While we applaud anything that rids us of that sad excuse for a sitcom, we're launching a life's-imitating-art-with-this-Ferris-Bueller-bad-boy DART at Charlie Sheen. His inability to control himself means his crew is out of work and his fans out of episodes to watch. They could always switch to the news. For a week, the story that's dominated most national and international outlets is the revolt in Egypt. With that much attention, media organizations sent journalists to investigate the riots. However, reporters are being detained and being forced to cough up their cameras as they record history in the making. For harming our brethren, both foreign and American, we're firing a messing-with-the-media-is-a-surefire-wayto-piss-off-protesters-even-more DART at the Egyptian authorities. They sure aren't winning any Nobel Peace Prizes. But WikiLeaks might. A Norwegian lawmaker nominated the website for the award because it has exposed war crimes and corruption. He says anyone keeping governments accountable in this way deserves a prize. For recognizing the role the Internet can play in making the world more peaceful, we're giving a maybe-weshouldn't-shoot-the-messenger-after-all LAUREL to Snorre Valen. The site probably won't win, but it's a step in the right direction. Embracing technology can be a good idea, especially when it can help the environment a little. That's why we roll our eyes every time a new Yellow Pages shows up on our doorstep and why we were happy to hear 1.5 million of the obsolete books may stop making their all-too-quick trips into trash cans. For considering making telephone books an opt-in publication, we're sending a LAUREL to San Francisco's Board of Supervisors President David Chiu. While his proposed legislation may raise the issue of constitutionality, it won't come to rival the debate over health care reform. We've come to accept that we have to give the rarest award, a here-we-go-again LART, to Judge Roger Vinson, who deemed the law's individual mandate unconstitutional. We wanted to give him a laurel for his careful legal consideration of the situation with an eye on our rights, but we couldn't help but consider a dart for reminding us how difficult it will be to fix a broken system with warring parties in office. It's giving us headaches thinking about it. For lightening our mood, we're giving a silhouetted LAUREL to Punxsutawney Phil's shadow. Thanks for taking Wednesday off.

Obama's perspective on the Constitution made it easy to forecast events such as what happened Monday, when Judge Roger Vinson, a federal district judge in Pensacola, ruled that the federal health care reform bill ("Obamacare") unconstitutional. In a campaign speech, Obama criticized the Bill of Rights for being "negative rights." That is, it states only what the federal government cannot do. Obama's concern was that we should be governed by a bill of nghts which includes what the government can do to its citizens. The most obnoxious part of the Bill of Rights to the liberal agenda is the 10th Amendment, which says, "The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people." That is, the federal government has no authority other than that which explicitly falls within the boundaries set by the Constitution. And Obamacare violates those boundaries. The provision within the legislation that resulted in the judicial ruling was that of mandated coverage. If the bill were to go into effect, millions of currently uninsured Americans would be forced to purchase a health insurance plan or else pay a fine to the federal government. And nowhere in the Constitution is the federal government given the authority to force the citizens to buy anything. This is a point liberals need to consider carefully. The Constitution and Bill of Rights were written and adopted as so-called "negative nghts" for good reason. The founders of this country were well aware that, in the ebb and flow of partisanship and public sentiment, those within the government may from time to time be tempted to make sweeping changes in response to a given situation ALLIGATOR www.alligator.org/opinion 't know party lines or issue. The negative rights were designed to prevent that, regardless of party. The safeguards on government intervention are necessary to keep politicians on both sides of the Bob Minchin aisle from foisting unjust mandates letters@alligatororg on American citizens. If a politically motivated Supreme Court decision overturns Judge Vinson, or if President Obama unlawfully forges ahead with his plan, then a precedent will be set. Powers given to the government will remain with the government, in this administration and all which follow. Thus, the president and Congress will have the power to force Americans to buy something whether they want it or not. Think about that. If, for example, Sarah Palin were to be elected and decide that everyone needed to own a firearm, this precedent would enable her to push through legislation that would require all Americans to purchase a gun whether they wanted to or not. Liberals often fail to consider unintended consequences. They should carefully consider the results of their tendency to respond to every issue by giving as much power as possible to a government that will not always be on their side ideologically. The Constitution, with its negative rights, ensures that no matter who is in power, the rights of the American citizen remain unchanged. Conservatives and liberals alike should be grateful for judges like Vinson who courageously defend those rights, regardless of the political climate.

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 4, 2011E ALLIGATOR, 7 Second Amendment is here to stay In response to Wednesday's letter, "Second Amendment needs another look," I feel like re-examining the Second Amendment is old hat. Grundy stated the age-old antigun activists argument of the "conditional clause." Sir, the Second Amendment has had another look. In fact, the Supreme Court has directly ruled "no" on it fewer than five times, plus four indirect rulings. Each word has been broken down and clearly defined. I'm happy to say that the Supreme Court has not taken the same view as you. I think the issue was settled a long time ago. Nelson Anderson UF student Federal funding should be steered away from Planned Parenthood In response to Wednesday's "Two to Tango," I wanted to address your levity in what should be a grave issue: Abortion and prostitution should never be joking matters. First, your semantics are deceptive because after watching Live Action's 11-minute "conversation, it is clear Live Action's intent is not as "anti-abortion" as it is "pro-life" and pro-law (unlike Planned Parenthood's foul employee who dropped the f-bomb at least six times). The behavior of this worker is morally reprehensible by both our federal government and the state of New Jersey. Certainly, the exemployee in the video "went against company policy," but if you dig a little deeper into Live Action's work throughout the past three years, you realize that this is not an isolated incident in the company, which the video pointed out received more than $300 million per year in federal funding. It seems that if an organization is unable to monitor employees who are consistently breaking federal and state statutes, perhaps tax dollars should be steered away from supporting potential company hazards. It seems Planned Parenthood has gotten itself in a tight spot, and Lila Rose's incredible initiative to utilize social media is finally forcing them to reconsider their inability to smooth out what is rightfully the most controversial issue on our nation's conscience. Caroline Pilgrim UFstudent Academy Awards will feel effects of marginalizing minorities When marginalized people lament the lack of diversity on the big screen, a common, though patronizing, retort is they need not seek validation from the entertainment industry. Hollywood is as quintessentially American as football. It is a staple of our culture and if people of color are not represented, they might as well not exist. Although some might have been hopeful after the Academy Awards last year when Mo'Nique took home the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress for her role in "Precious" and Kathryn Bigelow became the first woman to win Best Director for the "The Hurt Locker," others were rightfully trepidatious. While it was exciting to see Mo'Nique recognized, one must wonder why it took such a dark role for her to earn the accolade.The problem with the Hollywood machine is that it continues to typecast people of color. This is evident in the mid-season replacement "Harry's Law" by the wildly popular David E. Kelley. While the show has endearing qualities and witty writing, the supporting characters of color deify negative stereotypes of drug addiction, poverty and helplessness. Kelley is one of the best writers and producers in television. But even if he, at times, misses the sociocultural mark, the implications for lesser storytellers are harrowing. I wonder if the gag about "a black man falling from the roof" would have made the script had there been more voices of color at the table. Eva Mckend In an interview with "Complex" UWire magazine, Michael B. Jordan ("The Wire," "Friday Night Lights"), by far the most promising star of my generation, reflected on the challenges of being a young black actor in a whitedominated industry. "There are still a lot of white writers writing for black people, and there's always going to be a lot of stuff lost in translation," he said. The 23-year-old acknowledged he felt a responsibility to speak out against mischaracterizations especially in a business that relegates black talent to a "crab-in-a-barrel mentality." In response to the criticism The Academy will receive throughout this award season for what many are deeming "the whitest Oscars in a decade," we will hear the old excuse that there was merely not enough talent of color to chose from. Filmmaker Ava DuVernay, who was cited in several recent articles about the lack of diversity, recently formed the African-American Film Festival Releasing Movement, a campaign to widen the distribution of black films. Her efforts and her mission are compulsory in a field that treats people of color as if they are invisible. However, one must wonder how long African Americans will have to rely on their own mediums. In a society where all races coexist, black people should not be limited to black media. Alicia Niwagaba '11 argues that people of color don't generally receive roles that would garner them critical praise. She cites her frustration with films like "The Social Network" (nominated for eight Academy Awards) that cast a white actor to play an Indian man. "I have a hard time believing there was not one Indian actor who fit that role. It was a small part but it just exemplifies what is wrong with casting and the film industry." Ultimately, Niwagaba maintains it is a numbers game. "Studios don't think audiences want to see films with minorities or strong women, so films about white people (especially men) are disproportionately funded and supported." The few times that people of color were celebrated were what DuVernay described as anomalies. "People of color do not receive awards unless we are degrading ourselves and playing downtrodden characters," Niwagaba said. "We are always represented as the other, something to be pitied, never triumphant and never strong. It just shows you what kind of narrative Hollywood wants to maintain." The diversity that we represent in America will be the diversity illustrated around the world. If The Academy continues to ostracize certain voices, they will make themselves an irrelevant program. We don't have to look any further than the Miss America pageant to see that viewers can easily outgrow award ceremonies if they lose touch with reality.

8, ALLIGATOR U FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 4,2011 UF ROUNDUP Gators swim teams sweep weekly SEC awards By MELISSA PENDER Alligator Writer Florida became the second school since 2008 to win all four weekly Southeastern Conference awards after a stellar meet against Tennessee on Saturday and a sweep of Indian River State College on Sunday. Senior Conor Dwyer took SEC Male Swimmer of the Week for a record fifth lime this season, and freshman Elizabeth Beisel earned SEC Female Swimmer of the Week for a record fourth. The SEC Male and Female Freshman of the Week honors went to Marcin Cieslak and Hilda Luthersdotir. "It's always good having quality athletes, and [the award] was well deserved in all four parts," UF coach Gregg Troy said. Troy said the meet against Tennessee, UF's most lopsided dual victory over the Volunteers in history, showed how talented the Gators are. Dwyer was also named the yerCounsilm anHunsaker National Collegiate Male Swimmer of the Week for Jan. 2531 by CollegeSwimming.com. He broke this season's NCAA record in the 400-yard individual medley with a time of 3:44.73 against Tennessee. TRACK TEAMS HEADING TO ELITE MEET: The women's track and field team is not ranked like the No. 1 men, but it is motivated to change that. The women had one winner -freshman Ebony Eutsey in the 400-meter dash -and 10 top-five finishes at the Texas A&M Challenge despite sending a team of mostly freshmen and sophomores. Track and Field News ranked the Florida women's recruiting class as the country's No. 7 group last year and the second-best unit in the SEC. "Hopefully, we'll be right beside (the men) this year, if not above them," freshman Brittany Harrell said. "We'll do really well because we came in ranked high, and we have high expectations as a result." Except for a women's distance medley relay heading to New York, UF will compete in the two-day Virginia Tech Elite meet this weekend. The women previously placed first (2009) and second (2010) at the SEC Outdoor Tournament. "The big thing with our freshmen is that we do a good job of reloading so we don't have to rebuild," Gators coach Mike Holloway said. "They're here, we recruited them here, and we expect big things out of them. Harrell competed in her firstever collegiate meet last week, and Eutsey tried her hand at running indoors for the first lime. Harrell and Eutsey both say that as they mature, they will begin to perform at an even higher level. "Practicing with people that are very competitive like myself has been a learning experience," Eutsey said. "Actually being able to practice with somebody who is running right beside me or in front of me pushing me to get better has been a big transilion for me." -JOE MORGAN Caquatto to debut as all-arounder against Alabama THE GATORS WILL HOST A BATTLE OF UNDEFEATED TEAMS TONIGHT. By ALLISON BANKO Alligator Writer Both squads will roll into the O'Connell Center with unshaken records. Each team is fresh off season-high totals and has gymnasts ranking among the nation's top all-around competitors. Despite all their accomplishments, and their undefeated records, either No. 1 Florida or No. 6 Alabama will have to take a hit as the two square off in the O'Connell Center tonight at 7. Florida will feature its familiar all-arounders, sophomore Ashan6e Dickerson (No. 4 in the nation) and freshman Alaina Johnson (No. 5). They will face Crimson Tide junior Geralen Stack-Eaton, the No. 2 all-arounder in the nation, and senior Kayla Hoffman (No. 8), who was named the Southeastern Conference Gymnast of the Week. In addition to Johnson and Dickerson, the Gators will unveil a new, first-time all-arounder. Freshman Mackenzie Caquatto has racked up more events by the week, and she will collect her fourth against Alabama with the addition of vault. "This is my first time doing all-around, so I'm not expecting too much of myself," Caquatto said. "I'm just going to go out there and try to hit my routines to the best of my ability, the best that I can do. I just want to do like I do in practice and then work up from there." Gymnastics Caquatto set herself up for success, as her performances earned her second place in bars, beam and floor last week. Caquatto said she is not going to enter this meet any differently than the others, even though the team knows the Tide will throw down more competition than the Gators have faced. "We just have to stay inour bubble," Caquatto said. "[Coach] Rhonda [Faehn] always tells us, 'Stay in our bubble. Stay with the team. Focus on what you and the team are doing."' Dickerson remembered it was just that team mentality that pulled the squad ahead of Alabama when they faced off at the 2010 SEC Championships. At the start of the competition, Alabama looked to be the favorite as it shined on vault and the Gators had what Faehn described as their "worst vaulting performance of the year." "They had a strong start on vault, and I guess they didn't keep it going," Dickerson said. "We didn't have a strong start on vault, but we stayed together as a team. You can't start really, really high and then just going down because you use all your energy up on one event. You have to stay consistent on all four events to come out with a win." That's what the Gators did, pulling out the victory for the title. Faehn said the team needs to focus just as well when entering competition throughout the season. "That's really what we're working on for this year," she said. "Our mental strength, our mental toughness and focusing on the fact that there are going to be a few mistakes here and there, but its how you respond to them that shows your true success."

Sports FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 4, 2011 ALLIGATOR www.alligatorSports.org Boynton, Knight to reunite in O'Dome THE TWO WERE AAU TEAMMATES. By GREG LUCA Alligator Staff Writer gluca@alligator org Kenny Boynton will once again be face-toface with an old friend and bitter rival Saturday. After two years of amateur national championships and high school grudge matches, Boynton and Brandon Knight went their separate ways. But the duo will share a court when Florida (17-5, 6-2 Southeastern Conference) plays host to Knight and No. 10 Kentucky (16-5 4-3 SEC) at 9 p.m. with bragging rights and conference supremacy on the line. "We try to make each other better," Boynton said. "We compete on the court, and then when it's over, it's over. Pretty much our focus coming into the game is to win and try to not think about the matchup." Although Boynton is trying to keep his personal history with Knight on the backburner, the reunion has been a popular topic leading up to the game. When the two played together on Team Breakdown, they took home back-to-back 17U AAU National Championships. Once the summer season ended, the duo returned to the high school hardwood, with Boynton at Plantation American Heritage and Knight at Fort Lauderdale Pine Crest. The two teams faced off seven times in a two-year span, with Knight's squad coming out on top on four occasions. The most notable of those was the last, a 6159 win for Pine Crest in the Class 3A regional semifinals. Knight scored 26 points, and Boynton notched 20 but missed a game-tying free throw in the closing moments. While their relationship has grown stale as the gap between the two has widened, Boynton and Knight are still friends who once spoke on an almost daily basis. That close connection made a number of waves a season ago, when Boynton was outspoken in his desire to bring UF the class of 2010's No. 6 overall player, according to Rivals. Matt Tripp/ Alligator Staff com.

Ole Miss edges UF By MATT WATTS Alligator Writer Despite losing its star player in the second half, Ole Miss still found a way to beat Florida on Thursday night in the O'Connell Center. The Rebels were able to overcome the absence of senior guard Kayla Melson, who left the game after colliding with a teammate and suffering concussion-like symptoms, as well as a furious, late charge by the Gators to hold on for the 61-59 victory. Even with some late-game theatrics, Florida (14-10, 4-6 Southeastern Conference) didn't lose this matchup in crunch time -it was lost on the boards. Ole Miss (10-11, 3-6 SEC) dominated the glass with 16 offensive rebounds and multiple second-chance opportunities. "I thought that was the deciding factor in the game," coach Amanda Butler said. "Their offensive rebounding sustained them. .Those guys just crushed us. They crushed our post players on the inside." The Gators never held a lead in the game, but they put Women's themselves in posiBasketball tion for a come-frombehind victory in the closing minutes. Florida was down by 12 points with just over six minutes to play, but it put together a 16-4 run to tie the game at 56 with 1:03 left on the clock. As she had done all evening, OleMiss guard Valencia McFarland stepped up and delivered, driving to the basket and dishing to a wide-open Pa'Sonna Hope for the go-ahead score. Ole Miss defended well on the other end, and freshman guard Jaterra Bonds was forced to put up a three-point attempt with 12 seconds left. It didn't fall, and the Rebels clinched just their second win in eight games. Taking over at the point for Melson, McFarland finished with a game-high 20 points and six assists. "I'm real sad she's a freshman and we're going to have to play against her for three more years," Butler said of the Rebels guard.

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 4,2011E ALLIGATOR, 15 BILL, from page 14 rookie cop, was leaving his precinct house at 8 a.m. when he spotted Joe Namath. After what was obviously a rough night, "Broadway Joe" was exiting the side entrance of the Grand Summit Hotel. Namath's famed right arm was draped around the shoulder of a charming young creature in go-go boots. The Dublin-born Timoney recognized a hangover when he saw one. Jackpot: Timoney had coveted inside information. In just five hours, the Jets would play Oakland for the AFC Championship at Shea Stadium. Timoney scrambled to a pay phone. He pressed his brother to "send it in" on Oakland. In the most physical game Namath ever played, he led the Jets past the Raiders and into the Super Bowl 27-23. The rookie cop blew his rent money. Another friend, Red, is a bookmaker. These days, computers take all the action. Many of Red's Wall Street customers subscribe to high-priced betting services. Before games, Red checks his computer to see what teams he needs and for how much. Because he sees his customer's bets, Red has free access to all his players' sports handicapping services for free. Not one expensive betting service, but four, yet even he can't make money gambling. That's the bottom line: inside information, both sides of the law, both losers. Here's a gambler's perspective of the game. Toughness of schedule, injuries and everything else a handicapper thinks about have already been figured into the line. Early prognosticators had this game as a pick-em, but that didn't happen. The Packers settled into championship weekend as minus $140 to $100 favorites. After Pittsburgh beat the Jets, the line Sunday night opened Packers minus-2, or minus-2.5. Bookies love this line. Because scores don't usually fall on these numbers, bookies can seesaw back and forth between 2 and 2.5 to balance money. On gameday, dumpsters full of money couldn't get Vegas to move off a line the number usually falls on such as: 3, 4, 7, 8, 10 or 11. Corporations concocted a way to pump more money into the system. If you bet the game, or the total, you can "purchase" half a point. So, let's say you like the underdog, and the line is 5.5. Instead of betting $110 to win $100, Vegas "allows" you to wager $120 to win $100. This makes your bet more attractive at plus-6 but costs you "double juice." Here's where corporations really get cute. This year's Super Bowl line is 2.5. No one who likes the Packers will risk double juice to buy a half-point and lay a 2 instead of a 2.5. But if a bettor likes Pittsburgh, the plot thickens. Underdog bettors crave that plus-3. That's a number that could save their asses. But CEOs who run casinos know this, so they charge triple juice. That's right, $130 to win $100 if you want Pittsburgh plus3. I also see a plus-3 at minus $125. They might as well put a gun to your head. As of yet, the only money bet on Sunday's game has been "smart" money. The general public won't pour cash into this contest until gameday. Regardless of how much money comes in on the Pack, I can't see this line going to 3.5. It's bookmaking 101. Don't get "middled." Middled means that if Vegas open Packers minus-2.5, I bet Green Bay early and lay 2.5. Later, I wait until the line goes up, and I bet Pittsburgh plus-3.5. If the game falls 3, I win both ways. I've middled the spread. Bookies get killed. I recall that happening twice: Dallas-Pittsburgh, 1976 (the game fell 4) and Green Bay-New England, 1997 (the game fell 14). When this happens, bookies scramble to find a ledge. They literally have to wait in line to jump. The only thing bookies fear worse than getting middled on the Super Bowl is if the "number" 317 falls on Paddy's Day. They wake up screaming over that. For the sheltered and uninformed among you, I'll save "numbers" for another time, but remember this: If people behind betting services could predict winners, they wouldn't sell information or write columns. They'd do as you or I would. They'd sit in bed all day with cell phones and high-priced company sipping champagne. When Wilson manufactures square footballs, when rubber no longer bounces, then "experts" will pick winners. Until then, embed your cash in your hands, and keep those hands in your pockets.

16, ALLIGATOR U FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 4,2011 UF TENNIS Lacroix receives SEC honor as UF prepares for UCF, FSU By THOMAS NASSIFF Alligator Writer When the No. 7 Florida men's tennis team takes on two of its instate rivals this weekend, it will be led by the reigning Southeastern Conference Player of the Week. Alexandre Lacroix received the honor Wednesday after an impressive performance in the ITA KickOff Weekend tournament. Lacroix is 4-0 in singles and doubles this year. He will carry the Gators in today's match against UCF, which will be the team's last February appearance in Linder Stadium at Ring Tennis Complex. After facing UCF, the Gators (40) will hit the road for the first time this spring to match up with rival Florida State, ranked No. 27 in the nation. "Central Florida always plays us tough," coach Andy Jackson said, "and this is Florida State's best team in four or five years." The Seminoles' only two losses were to No. 2 Southern California and No. 6 UCLA, and Jackson said it's an advantage for FSU to have played teams of that quality. "You can throw out all the rankings and Lacroix record books when it comes to Florida-Florida State," Jackson said. "We're prepared to take their best shot." UF READIES FOR BAYLOR: Thirdranked Baylor will attempt to halt the No. 2 UF women's tennis team's 94-game regular-season home win streak on Saturday at 1 p.m. The Bears are a different animal than any team the Gators have faced this spring, coach Roland Thornqvist said. "We've played some teams early on who didn't really think they had a shot at beating us," he said. "Baylor is going to come here thinking they can win, and they certainly have a powerful lineup." Baylor will feature three ranked singles players to face Florida's formidable top three of Allie Will, Lauren Embree and Sofie Oyen. "We have a young team, so we have to be ready, and it's going to be interesting to see how we respond," Thornqvist said. Florida will also host No. 56 Florida International on Sunday at 1 p.m. Knight shining for UK as freshman HUUP, from page 14 interest in recruiting Knight, calling him a terrfic player with a great work ethic. However, Donovan admits he did not think Knight was truly considering Florida after his official visit early in UF's season. Donovan's suspicions turned out to be accurate, as Knight eventually committed to the Wildcats on April 14. "I tried to get him to come here," Boynton said. "He liked it, but Kentucky, he felt that was a better situation, so he chose to go there." Knight has put together a stellar freshman season to this point, averaging 17.2 points, 4.1 rebounds and 3.8 assists per game. "He's always been a smart player," Boyntnn soid. "When he's on the court. he m akes the right plays. When he's open, he takes the shot or tries to get to the rim, and when he sees the open man, he's a great passer." Boynton has played down the matchup from an individual perspective, but he and the rest of the team know any game against Kentucky is a big one, especially a nationally televised game Men's with GameDay in town. Basketball BThe personal ties between Boynton and Knight only add to the frenzy. "Every time we play Kentucky, everybody is excited," senior forward Chandler Parsons said. "Him growing up with him, playing together on Team Breakdown, I'm sure he's got some real excitement going through his mind and I'm sure he's going to come ready to play." Zone D, forced shots hurt Gators WHOOPS, from page 14_ game, Butler said, and didn't score its first points until close to three minutes in. But the coach scoffed at the notion her team lacked motivation. "I don't know why there would be a reason that we wouldn't be up for this game -that's just incomprehensible to me," she said. The Gators shot poorly all evening and finished 22 of 58 from the held. Junior guard Jordan Jones (eight points, 2-of-8 three-point shooting) said the Rebels' zone defense allowed open looks, but she admitted Florida also forced some shots. "It's never in our game plan just to jack up a bunch of threes," Jones said of Florida's 22 attempts from the outside. "I took a lot and wish I had some of them back." While there were opportunities to pull out an improbable win late in the game, Jones said the team didn't do enough to secure a victory. "We showed good fight at the end," Jones said. "But to not have it there for 40 minutes against an SEC team .there's no excuse for that." REASON NO. 4 TO USE THE UF STUDENT HEALTH CARE CENTER: The Inly thing we want you to leave with is a degree.

But Gainesville renewable energy may not be too hard to sway, said Don Davis, a board member for the Florida Alliance for Renewable Energy. “Gainesville is absolutely the best place in the state of Florida for solar energy,” Davis said, mentioning the fact that Gainesville is the Feed-In Tariff program, in which GRU purchases solar energy from residents who have solar panels at twice the cost of what it sells the energy. Ryan said he hopes to inspire policies like Gainesville’s in other cities along the tour, including Miami, Tampa and Orlando. “We hope what people take away is a clear message that Florida needs renewable energy policy,” Ryan said.

Commissioner Warren Nielsen agreed. “Our charge is really to be consistent,” he said. The Bowes left the meeting before they could be reached for further comment. The commission voted unanimously to refer to a committee to look into changing land development codes to allow dogs that aren’t pets on residential property. Baber’s lawyer, Sondra Randon, said that they will pursue changing the codes, but that wasn’t the path they were looking to take. “We’ll go back to the drawing board,” she said. Baber said he knows most of his neighbors very well, but he barely knows the Bowes. Baber said he’s resolved complaints they’ve told him about, such as an ugly fence, but they haven’t tried to work with him. “They only have an interest in destroying a human being who’s doing a lot of good in the community,” he said.

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 4, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 5 By ANGELA RIBBLERAlligator Contributing Writer Las Vegas magicians Penn and Teller have been making people laugh, cringe and gasp by sawing people in half, cracking jokes and exposing fraud for 30 years. On Wednesday, the comedic tricksters will perform at the Phillips Center for the Performing Arts at 7:30 p.m. The show will be free and open to the public. Penn and Teller were chosen to perform because they combine entertainment and prominence, said Corey Portnoy, Accent’s chief of staff. Penn and Teller have written three best-selling books, received 11 Emmy nominations for their television series “Penn & Teller: Bullshit!” and recently Las Vegas show at the Rio AllSuite Hotel & Casino, according to the Penn and Teller website. In Gainesville, their performance will consist of question-andanswer audience participation, as well as demonstrations of illusions and tricks, said Glenn Alai, executive director of the show. Accent is paying $57,500 to bring Penn and Teller to UF, said Zack Goldstein, chairman of Accent in an e-mail. Vegas magicians to perform act at UF UF RESEARCHERS DISCOVERED SIX NEW PLANETS 2,000 LIGHT-YEARS AWAY.By HANNAH WINSTONAlligator Writer Finding a new planet isn’t the kind of thing that’s traditionally on a scientist’s daily itinerary. In the realm of science, it’s like winning a Super Bowl, jeans all wrapped into one. Eric Ford and his team found six. Ford, an associate professor of astronomy at UF, along with Althea Moorhead, a postdoctoral associate, and graduate student Robert Morehead, is part of the UF research team associated with a NASA orbiting the star Kepler-11. “It was more like four eureka moments,” Ford said. “It was three planets, then four planets, then Using a method called transit-timing, they were able to measure irregularities in light given off by the star, proving plants were orbiting around it. Scientists and astronomers use the data collected regularities in light given off by the stars using its photometer, or light meter, to measure the brightness of stars. smaller than Neptune, and one is about the size of Jupiter. The planets are located 2,000 light-years away from Earth. That distance makes it more extraordinary, he explained, because it’s one of the farthest systems to have a potential for water on the surface. Five of the planets have orbits around the star orbit was 10.3 days, he said. This also made the disa year of data collected. “We’re really looking forward to the next few years,” he said. Ford has been involved since 2007 when he was chosen along with nine other scientists to work with the project. Though the project had been in the works since the 1980s, the Kepler spacecraft left Earth in March 2009. Since then, the Kepler spaceThe mission costs $600 million, including the spacecraft, and about $360,000 is given to UF, Ford said. The mission is supposed to last a little more than three years. But Ford said there is enough space between the Team discovers new planets On Campu s Ford

Bill of Rights doesn’t know party linesConservative thinkers could see this coming before President Obama was even elected. Obama’s perspective on the Constitution made it easy to forecast events such as what happened Monday, when Judge Roger Vinson, a federal district judge in Pensacola, ruled that the federal health care reform bill (“Obamacare”) unconstitutional. In a campaign speech, Obama criticized the Bill of Rights for being “negative rights.” That is, it states only what the federal government cannot do. Obama’s concern was that we should be governed by a bill of rights which includes what the government can do to its citizens. The most obnoxious part of the Bill of Rights to the liberal agenda is the 10th Amendment, which says, “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.” That is, the federal government has no authority other than that which explicitly falls within the boundaries set by the Constitution. And Obamacare violates those boundaries. The provision within the legislation that resulted in the judicial ruling was that of mandated coverage. If the bill were to go into effect, millions of currently uninsured Americans would be forced to purchase a health insurance And nowhere in the Constitution is the federal government given the authority to force the citizens to buy anything. This is a point liberals need to consider carefully. The Constitution and Bill of Rights were written and adopted as so-called “negative rights” for good reason. The founders of this country were well aware that, in the within the government may from time to time be tempted to make sweeping changes in response to a given situation or issue. The negative rights were designed to prevent that, regardless of party. The safeguards on government intervention are necessary to keep politicians on both sides of the aisle from foisting unjust mandates on American citizens. If a politically motivated Supreme Court decision overturns Judge Vinson, or if President Obama unlawfully forges ahead with his plan, then a precedent will be set. Powers given to the government will remain with the government, in this administration and all which follow. Thus, the president and Congress will have the power to force Americans to buy something whether they want it or not. Think about that. If, for example, Sarah Palin were to be elected and dewould enable her to push through legislation that would require all Americans to purchase a gun whether they wanted to or not. Liberals often fail to consider unintended consequences. They should carefully consider the results of their tendency to respond to every issue by giving as much power as possible to a government that will not always be on their side ideologically. The Constitution, with its negative rights, ensures that no matter who is in power, the rights of the American citizen remain unchanged. Conservatives and liberals alike should be grateful for judges like Vinson who courageously defend those rights, regardless of the political climate. Bob Minchin is a fourth-year electrical engineering major. His column appears on Fridays. Our friends up north may be buried in feet of snow, but we’ve got avalanches of a different sort on our hands. February brings with it a cascade of papers, exams and projects designed to clog our rooms with a blizzard of notes and handouts. As we dig ourselves out, we bring you the we’re-shaking-because-of-our-caffeine-dependency-notthe-weather edition of...Darts & LaurelsWe’re not the only ones with a debilitating addiction, though. Charlie Sheen is back in rehab, putting his show “Two and a Half Men” on hiatus. While we applaud anything that rids us of that sad excuse for a sitcom, we’re launching a life’s-imitating-art-with-this-Ferris-Bueller-bad-boy DART at Charlie Sheen. His inability to control himself means his crew is out of work and his fans out of episodes to watch. They could always switch to the news. For a week, the story that’s dominated most national and international outlets is the revolt in Egypt. With that much attention, media organizations sent journalists to investigate the riots. However, reporters are being detained and being forced to cough up their cameras as they record history in the making. For harming our brethren, both foreign and American, to-piss-off-protesters-even-more DART at the Egyptian authorities. They sure aren’t winning any Nobel Peace Prizes. But WikiLeaks might. A Norwegian lawmaker nominated the website for the award because it has exposed war crimes and corruption. He says anyone keeping governments accountable in this way deserves a prize. For recognizing the role the Internet can play in making the world more peaceful, we’re giving a maybe-weshouldn’t-shoot-the-messenger-after-all LAUREL to Snorre Valen. The site probably won’t win, but it’s a step in the right direction. Embracing technology can be a good idea, especially when it can help the environment a little. That’s why we roll our eyes every time a new Yellow Pages shows up on our doorstep and why we were happy to hear 1.5 million of the obsolete books may stop making their all-too-quick trips into trash cans. For considering making telephone books an opt-in publication, we’re sending a LAUREL to San Francisco’s Board of Supervisors President David Chiu. While his proposed legislation may raise the issue of constitutionality, it won’t come to rival the debate over health care reform. We’ve come to accept that we have to give the rarest award, a here-we-go-again LART, to Judge Roger Vinson, who deemed the law’s individual mandate unconstitutional. We wanted to give him a laurel for his careful legal consideration of the situation with an eye on our rights, but we couldn’t help but consider a dart for reminding us how It’s giving us headaches thinking about it. For lightening our mood, we’re giving a silhouetted LAUREL to Punxsutawney Phil’s shadow. Thanks for taking Wednesday off. Until next time, remember that spring is around the corner, Gators.

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 4, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 7Letters to the EditorSecond Amendment is here to stayIn response to Wednesday’s letter, “Second Amendment needs another look,” I feel like re-examining the Second Amendment is old hat. Grundy stated the age-old antigun activists argument of the “conditional clause.” Sir, the Second Amendment has had another look. In fact, the Supreme Court times, plus four indirect rulings. Each word I’m happy to say that the Supreme Court has not taken the same view as you. I think the issue was settled a long time ago. Nelson Anderson UF student Federal funding should be steered away from Planned ParenthoodIn response to Wednesday’s “Two to Tango,” I wanted to address your levity in what should be a grave issue: Abortion and prostitution should never be joking matters. First, your semantics are deceptive because after watching Live Action’s 11-minute “conversation, ” it is clear Live Action’s intent is not as “anti-abortion” as it is “pro-life” and pro-law (unlike Planned Parenthood’s foul employee who dropped the f-bomb at least six times). The behavior of this worker is morally reprehensible by both our federal government and the state of New Jersey. Certainly, the exemployee in the video “went against company policy,” but if you dig a little deeper into Live Action’s work throughout the past three years, you realize that this is not an isolated incident in the company, which the video pointed out received more than $300 million per year in federal funding. It seems that if an organization is unable to monitor employees who are consistently breaking federal and state statutes, perhaps tax dollars should be steered away from supporting potential company hazards. It seems Planned Parenthood has gotten itself in a tight spot, and Lila Rose’s incredible inithem to reconsider their inability to smooth out what is rightfully the most controversial issue on our nation’s conscience. Caroline Pilgrim UF student When marginalized people lament the lack of diver sity on the big screen, a common, though patronizing, retort is they need not seek validation from the entertainment industry. Hollywood is as quintessentially American as football. It is a staple of our culture and if people of color are not represented, they might as well not exist. Although some might have been hopeful after the Academy Awards last year when Mo’Nique took home the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress for her role in “Precious” and Kaththe “The Hurt Locker,” others were rightfully trepidatious. While it was exciting to see Mo’Nique recognized, one must wonder why it took such a dark role for her to earn the accolade.The problem with the Hollywood machine is that it continues to typecast people of color. This is evident in the mid-season replacement “Harry’s Law” by the wildly popular David E. Kelley. While the show has endearing qualities and witty writing, the supporting characters of color deify negative stereotypes of drug addiction, poverty and helplessness. Kelley is one of the best writers and producers in television. But even if he, at times, misses the sociocultural mark, the implications for lesser storytellers are harrowing. I wonder if the gag about “a black man falling from the roof” would have made the script had there been more voices of color at the table. In an interview with “Complex” magazine, Michael B. Jordan (“The Wire,” “Friday Night Lights”), by far the most promising star of my generain a whitedominated industry. “There are still a lot of white writers writing for black people, and there’s always going to be a lot of stuff lost in translation,” he said. The 23-year-old acknowledged he felt a responsibility to speak out against mischaracterizations especially in a business that relegates black talent to a “crab-in-a-barrel mentality.” In response to the criticism The Academy will receive throughout this award season for what many are deeming “the whitest Oscars in a decade,” we will hear the old excuse that there was merely not enough talent of color to chose from. Filmmaker Ava DuVernay, who was cited in several recent articles about the lack of diversity, recently formed the African-American Film Festival Releasing Movement, a campaign to widen the are invisible. However, one must wonder how long African Americans will have to rely on their own mediums. In a society where all races coexist, black people should not be limited to black media. Alicia Niwagaba 1 argues that people of color don’t generally receive roles that would garner them critical Network” (nominated for eight Academy Awards) that cast a white actor to play an Indian man. “I have a hard time tains it is a numbers game. “Studios don’t think audiences about white people (especially men) are disproportionately funded and supported.” The few times that people of color were celebrated were what DuVernay described as anomalies.“People of color do not receive awards unless we are degrading ourselves and playing downtrodden characters,” Niwagaba said. “We are always represented as the other, something to be pitied, never triumphant and never strong. It just shows you what kind of narrative Hollywood wants to maintain.” The diversity that we represent in America will be the diversity illustrated around the world. If The Academy continues to ostracize certain voices, they will make themselves an irrelevant program. We don’t have to look any further than the Miss America pageant to see that viewers can easily outgrow award ceremonies if they lose touch with reality.

8, ALLIGATOR FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 4, 2011 UF ROUNDUPBy MELISSA PENDERAlligator Writer Florida became the second school since 2008 to win all four weekly Southeastern Conference awards after a stellar meet against Tennessee on Saturday and a sweep of Indian River State College on Sunday. Senior Conor Dwyer took SEC Male Swimmer of the Week for a freshman Elizabeth Beisel earned SEC Female Swimmer of the Week for a record fourth. The SEC Male and Female Freshman of the Week honors went to Marcin Cieslak and Hilda Luthersdottir. “It’s always good having quality athletes, and [the award] was well deserved in all four parts,” UF coach Gregg Troy said. Troy said the meet against Tennessee, UF’s most lopsided dual victory over the Volunteers in history, showed how talented the Gators are. Dwyer was also named the CounsilmanHunsaker National Collegiate Male Swimmer of the Week for Jan. 2531 by CollegeSwimming.com. He broke this season’s NCAA record in the 400-yard individual medley with a time of 3:44.73 against Tennessee. TRACK TEAMS HEADING TO ELITE MEET: The women’s track and No. 1 men, but it is motivated to change that. The women had one winner — freshman Ebony Eutsey in the lenge despite sending a team of mostly freshmen and sophomores. Track and Field News ranked the Florida women’s recruiting class as the country’s No. 7 group last year and the second-best unit in the SEC. “Hopefully, we’ll be right beside (the men) this year, if not above them,” freshman Brittany Harrell said. “We’ll do really well because we came in ranked high, and we medley relay heading to New York, UF will compete in the two-day Vir ginia Tech Elite meet this weekend. The women previously placed SEC Outdoor Tournament. “The big thing with our freshmen is that we do a good job of reloading so we don’t have to rebuild,” Gators coach Mike Holloway said. “They’re here, we recruited them here, and ever collegiate meet last week, and Eutsey tried her hand at running inEutsey both say that as they mature, they will begin to perform at an even higher level. “Practicing with people that are very competitive like myself has said. “Actually being able to practice with somebody who is running right beside me or in front of me pushing me to get better has been a big transition for me.”— JOE MORGANGators swim teams sweep weekly SEC awardsDwyer THE GATORS WILL HOST A BATTLE OF UNDEFEATED TEAMS TONIGHT.By ALLISON BANKOAlligator Writer Both squads will roll into the O’Connell Center with unshaken records. Each team is fresh off season-high totals and has gymnasts ranking among the nation’s top all-around competitors. Despite all their accomplishments, and their undefeated records, either No. 1 Florida or No. 6 Alabama will have to take a hit as the two square off in the O’Connell Center tonight at 7. Florida will feature its familiar all-arounders, sophomore Ashane Dickerson (No. 4 in the nation) and freshman Alaina Johnson (No. 5). They will face Crimson Tide junior Geralen Stack-Eaton, the No. 2 all-arounder in the nation, and senior Kayla Hoffman (No. 8), who was named the Southeastern Conference Gymnast of the Week. In addition to Johnson and Dickerson, the Gators will unveil Freshman Mackenzie Caquatto has racked up more events by the week, and she will collect her fourth against Alabama with the addition of vault. too much of myself,” Caquatto said. “I’m just going to go out there and try to hit my routines to the best of my ability, the best that I can do. I just want to do like I do in practice and then work up from there.” Caquatto set herself up for success, as her performances earned her second place Caquatto said she is not going to enter this meet any differ ently than the others, even though the team knows the Tide will throw down more competition than the Gators have faced. “We just have to stay in our bubble,” Caquatto said. “[Coach] Rhonda [Faehn] always tells us, ‘Stay in our bubble. Stay with the team. Focus on what you and the team are doing.’” Dickerson remembered it was just that team mentality that pulled the squad ahead of Alabama when they faced off at the 2010 SEC Championships. At the start of the competition, Alabama looked to be the favorite as it shined on vault and the Gators had what Faehn described as their “worst vaulting performance of the year.” “They had a strong start on vault, and I guess they didn’t keep it going,” Dickerson said. “We didn’t have a strong start on vault, but we stayed together as a team. You can’t start really, really high and then just going down because you use all your energy up on one event. You have to stay consistent on all four events to come out with a win.” That’s what the Gators did, pulling out the victory for the title. Faehn said the team needs to focus just as well when entering competition throughout the season. “That’s really what we’re working on for this year,” she said. “Our mental strength, our mental toughness and focusing on the fact that there are going to be a few mistakes here and there, but it’s how you respond to them that shows your true success.”Caquatto to debut as all-arounder against Alabama Gymnastics

Today’s question: Who do you think is the best player on the Gators men’s basketball team? POLL QUESTION #2 Matt Tripp / Alligator StaffUF guard Kenny Boynton will square off with former high school rival and AAU teammate Brandon Knight, a Kentucky freshman, on Saturday night. THE TWO WERE AAU TEAMMATES.By GREG LUCAAlligator Staff Writergluca@alligator.org Kenny Boynton will once again be face-toface with an old friend and bitter rival Satur day. After two years of amateur national championships and high school grudge matches, Boynton and Brandon Knight went their separate ways. But the duo will share a court when Florida (17-5, 6-2 Southeastern Conference) plays host to Knight and No. 10 Kentucky (16-5 4-3 SEC) at 9 p.m. with bragging rights and conference supremacy on the line. “We try to make each other better,” Boynton said. “We compete on the court, and then when it’s over, it’s over. Pretty much our focus coming into the game is to win and try to not think about the matchup.” Although Boynton is trying to keep his per sonal history with Knight on the backburner, the reunion has been a popular topic leading up to the game. When the two played together on Team Breakdown, they took home back-to-back 17U AAU National Championships. Once the summer season ended, the duo returned to the high school hardwood, with Boynton at Plantation American Heritage and Knight at Fort Lauderdale Pine Crest. The two teams faced off seven times in a two-year span, with Knight’s squad coming out on top on four occasions. The most notable of those was the last, a 6159 win for Pine Crest in the Class 3A regional ton notched 20 but missed a game-tying free throw in the closing moments. While their relationship has grown stale as the gap between the two has widened, Boynton and Knight are still friends who once spoke on an almost daily basis. That close connection made a number of waves a season ago, when Boynton was outspoken in his desire to bring UF the class of 2010’s No. 6 overall player, according to Rivals. com. Florida coach Billy Donovan also expressed Boynton, Knight to reunite in O’DomeBy MATT WATTSAlligator Writer Despite losing its star player in the second half, Ole Miss still found a way to beat Florida on Thursday night in the O’Connell Center. The Rebels were able to overcome the absence of senior guard Kayla Melson, who left the game after colliding with a teammate and suffering concussion-like symptoms, as well as a furious, late charge by the Gators to hold on for the 61-59 victory. Even with some late-game theatrics, Florida (14-10, 4-6 Southeastern Confer ence) didn’t lose this matchup in crunch time — it was lost on the boards. Ole Miss (10-11, 3-6 SEC) dominated the glass with 16 offensive rebounds and multiple second-chance opportunities. “I thought that was the deciding factor in the game,” coach Amanda Butler said. “Their offensive rebounding sustained them. Those guys just crushed us. They crushed our post players on the inside.” The Gators never held a lead in the game, but they put themselves in position for a come-frombehind victory in the closing minutes. Florida was down by 12 points with just over six minutes to play, but it put together a 16-4 run to tie the game at 56 with 1:03 left on the clock. As she had done all evening, Ole Miss guard Valencia McFarland stepped up and delivered, driving to the basket and dishing to a wide-open Pa’Sonna Hope for the go-ahead score. Ole Miss defended well on the other end, and freshman guard Jaterra Bonds was forced to put up a three-point attempt with 12 seconds left. It didn’t fall, and the Rebels clinched just their second win in eight games. Taking over at the point for Melson, 20 points and six assists. “I’m real sad she’s a freshman and we’re going to have to play against her for three more years,” Butler said of the Rebels guard. Ole Miss edges UFSuper Bowl betting impossible to master, even for prosTwo old-school franchises promise a captivating clash in Dallas. Green Bay and Pittsburgh have been at each other’s throats since Christ was a corporal. Vegas and the public are delighted with this package because both teams are magnets for bettors. Aaron Rodgers has an arm like a howitzer, and Pittsburgh made the Super Bowl despite only showing up for the Jets and the second half against the Ravens. If they play a complete game Sunday, Green Bay’s in trouble. That’s all the recap, hyperbole and analysis you’re going to get out of me — instead, a story.

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 4, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 15 rookie cop, was leaving his precinct house at 8 a.m. when he spotted Joe Namath. After what was obviously a rough night, “Broadway Joe” was exiting the side entrance of the Grand Summit Hotel. Namath’s famed right arm was draped around the shoulder of a charming young creature in go-go boots. The Dublin-born Timoney recognized a hangover when he saw one. Jackpot: Timoney had coveted inside would play Oakland for the AFC Championship at Shea Stadium. Timoney scrambled to a pay phone. He pressed his brother to “send it in” on Oakland. In the most physical game Namath ever played, he led the Jets past the Raiders and into the Super Bowl 27-23. The rookie cop blew his rent money. Another friend, Red, is a bookmaker. These days, computers take all the action. Many of Red’s Wall Street customers subscribe to high-priced betting services. Before games, Red checks his computer to see what teams he needs and for how much. Because he sees his customer’s bets, Red has free access to all his players’ sports handicapping services for free. Not one expensive betting service, but four, yet even he can’t make money gambling. That’s the bottom line: inside information, both sides of the law, both losers. Here’s a gambler’s perspective of the game. Toughness of schedule, injuries and everything else a handicapper thinks about Early prognosticators had this game as a pick-em, but that didn’t happen. The Packers settled into championship weekend as minus $140 to $100 favorites. After Pittsburgh beat the Jets, the line Sunday night opened Packers minus-2, or minus-2.5. Bookies love this line. Because scores don’t usually fall on these numbers, bookies can seesaw back and forth between 2 and 2.5 to balance money. On gameday, dumpsters full of money couldn’t get Vegas to move off a line the number usually falls on such as: 3, 4, 7, 8, 10 or 11. Corporations concocted a way to pump more money into the system. If you bet the game, or the total, you can “purchase” half a point. So, let’s say you like the underdog, and the line is 5.5. Instead of betting $110 to win $100, Vegas “allows” you to wager $120 to win $100. This makes your bet more attractive at plus-6 but costs you “double juice.” Here’s where corporations really get cute. This year’s Super Bowl line is 2.5. No one who likes the Packers will risk double juice to buy a half-point and lay a 2 instead of a 2.5. But if a bettor likes Pittsburgh, the plot thickens. Underdog bettors crave that plus-3. That’s a number that could save their asses. But CEOs who run casinos know this, so they charge triple juice. That’s right, $130 to win $100 if you want Pittsburgh plus3. I also see a plus-3 at minus $125. They might as well put a gun to your head. As of yet, the only money bet on Sunday’s game has been “smart” money. The general public won’t pour cash into this contest until gameday. Regardless of how much money comes in on the Pack, I can’t see this line going to 3.5. It’s bookmaking 101. Don’t get “middled.” Middled means that if Vegas open Packers minus-2.5, I bet Green Bay early and lay 2.5. Later, I wait until the line goes up, and I bet Pittsburgh plus-3.5. If the game falls 3, I win both ways. I’ve middled the spread. Bookies get killed. I recall that happening twice: Dallas-Pittsburgh, 1976 (the game fell 4) and Green Bay-New England, 1997 (the game fell 14). When this happens, bookies scramble in line to jump. The only thing bookies fear worse than getting middled on the Super Bowl is if the “number” 317 falls on Paddy’s Day. They wake up screaming over that. For the sheltered and uninformed among you, I’ll save “numbers” for another time, but remember this: If people behind betting services could predict winners, they wouldn’t sell infor mation or write columns. They’d do as you or I would. They’d sit in bed all day with cell phones and high-priced company sipping champagne. When Wilson manufactures square footballs, when rubber no longer bounces, then “experts” will pick winners. Until then, embed your cash in your hands, and keep those hands in your pockets.

16, ALLIGATOR FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 4, 2011 UF TENNISBy THOMAS NASSIFFAlligator Writer When the No. 7 Florida men’s tennis team takes on two of its instate rivals this weekend, it will be led by the reigning Southeastern Conference Player of the Week. Alexandre Lacroix received the honor Wednesday after an impressive performance in the ITA KickOff Weekend tournament. Lacroix is 4-0 in singles and doubles this year. He will carry the Gators in today’s match against UCF, which will be the team’s last February appearance in Linder Stadium at Ring Tennis Complex. After facing UCF, the Gators (4this spring to match up with rival Florida State, ranked No. 27 in the nation. “Central Florida always plays us tough,” coach Andy Jackson said, “and this is Florida State’s best team The Seminoles’ only two losses were to No. 2 Southern California and No. 6 UCLA, and Jackson said it’s an advantage for FSU to have played teams of that quality. “You can throw out all the rankings and record books when it comes to Florida-Florida State,” Jackson said. “We’re prepared to take their best shot.” UF READIES FOR BAYLOR: Thirdranked Baylor will attempt to halt the No. 2 UF women’s tennis team’s 94-game regular-season home win streak on Saturday at 1 p.m. The Bears are a different animal than any team the Gators have faced this spring, coach Roland Thornqvist said. “We’ve played some teams early on who didn’t really think they had a shot at beating us,” he said. “Baylor is going to come here thinking they can win, and they certainly have a powerful lineup.” Baylor will feature three ranked singles players to face Florida’s for midable top three of Allie Will, Lau“We have a young team, so we have to be ready, and it’s going to be interesting to see how we respond,” Thornqvist said. Florida will also host No. 56 Florida International on Sunday at 1 p.m.Lacroix receives SEC honor as UF prepares for UCF, FSULacroix game, Butler said, and didn’t score its in. But the coach scoffed at the notion her team lacked motivation. “I don’t know why there would be a reason that we wouldn’t be up for this game — that’s just incomprehensible to me,” she said. The Gators shot poorly all evening nior guard Jordan Jones (eight points, Rebels’ zone defense allowed open looks, but she admitted Florida also forced some shots. “It’s never in our game plan just to jack up a bunch of threes,” Jones said of Florida’s 22 attempts from the outside. “I took a lot and wish I had some of them back.” While there were opportunities to pull out an improbable win late in the game, Jones said the team didn’t do enough to secure a victory. Jones said. “But to not have it there for 40 minutes against an SEC team there’s no excuse for that.” Zone D, forced shots hurt Gators W-HOOPS, from page 14Knight shining for UK as freshmaninterest in recruiting Knight, calling him a ter Donovan admits he did not think Knight was early in UF’s season. Donovan’s suspicions turned out to be accurate, as Knight eventually committed to the Wildcats on April 14. “I tried to get him to come here,” Boynton said. “He liked it, but Kentucky, he felt that was a better situation, so he chose to go there.” Knight has put together a stellar freshman season to this point, averaging 17.2 points, 4.1 “He’s always been a smart player,” Boynton said. “When he’s on the court, he makes the right plays. When he’s open, he takes the shot or tries to get to the rim, and when he sees the open man, he’s a great passer.” Boynton has played down the matchup from an individual perspective, but he and the rest of the team know any game against Kentucky is a big one, especially a nationally televised game with GameDay in town. The personal ties between Boynton and Knight only add to the frenzy. “Every time we play Kentucky, everybody is excited,” senior forward Chandler Parsons said. “Him growing up with him, playing together on Team Breakdown, I’m sure he’s got some real excitement going through his mind and I’m sure he’s going to come ready to play.” HOOPS, from page 14 Men's Bask etball
