Biden speaks to about 3,500 in Ocala


* HE SPOKE ABOUT
CAMPAIGN'S GOALS.

By KATIE EMMETS
Alligator Contributing Writer

OCALA Democratic vice
presidential candidate Sen. Joe
Biden told a shivering crowd
in Ocala on Tuesday that he
would devote every waking
hour to solving two objectives:
restore the middle class and
reclaim America's respect in
the world.
Despite cold weather, about
3,500 supporters gathered at
the Dancing Horses Farm as
Biden announced his ticket's
platform and their ideas to ac-
complish them.
"The first way to accomplish
reclaiming respect is to end the
war in Iraq," he said.
For the middle class, Biden
said he and Democratic presi-
dential candidate Sen. Barack
Obama would create 121,000
new high-paying jobs in the
state of Florida.
"When the American mid-
dle class is doing well, the rich
do fine and the poor do better,"
Biden said.
Florida House Rep. Chuck
Chestnut, who attended the
rally, said the nation needs a


change that helps the middle
class. He said he believes
Obama and Biden can carry out
that change.
"Joe Biden is the man,"
Chestnut said. "His experience
as a senator definitely helps
Obama's ticket."
Although Ocala is known
for being conservative, crowds
at the rally held blue Obama-
Biden signs high and chanted
"Yes we can" before Biden took
the stage.
In his speech, Biden also dis-
cussed the recent national flood
of foreclosures.
A lot of parents today have
to tell their children that their
lives are going to change be-
cause they have lost the house
they live in, he said.
He said the Democrats plan
to stop all foreclosures in the
U.S. for a three-month period.
Another priority in the
Democrat's platform is mak-
ing health care available and
affordable for all American
citizens.
Heather Moore, a Webster,
Fla., resident who attended the
rally, said health care is one of
her top priorities. Moore, who
is a cancer survivor, said she
owed about $11,500 in medical

Nader speaks at Reitz


By THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Writer

Independent presidential candidate
Ralph Nader was not afraid to describe
a future of disappointment for about 150
people who attended his speech at the
Reitz Union on Tuesday.
Arriving an hour late, Nader began
his hour-long speech by describing the
economic situation that awaits students
on the cusp of graduation.
"In addition to a deepening recession,
you're facing difficulty in getting health
insurance, unless you're pretty well off,"
he said.


Affordable housing will also be dif-
ficult to find, he said, and skilled jobs
will be "increasingly susceptible to being
outsourced to fascist and communist dic-
tators abroad."
Nader criticized Sens.
John McCain and Barack
On Obama, his main opponents
Campu for the presidency, for want-
ing to increase the military's
budget.
"We have enough TNT equivalent,
industrial engineers have told us, to blow
the world up 300 times and make the

STATE

Fla. extends voting hours


By LAUREN IRIZARRY
Alligator Contributing Writer

A record early voter turnout has led
Gov. Charlie Crist to declare a state of
emergency extending poll hours state-
wide.
Polling places will be open from 7 a.m.
to 7 p.m. for the rest of the week, and for 12
hours total between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. this
weekend.
According to a press release from the
governor's office, Crist issued the execu-
tive order to ensure a maximum number of
registered voters have their voices heard.
Statewide, more than 1 million
Floridians had voted as of 5 a.m. Tuesday,
which is about 10 percent of Florida's regis-
tered voters, according to the Department


of State Web site.
In Alachua County, about 30,000
people had voted early as of Tuesday eve-
ning, nearly double the-early votes of the
2004 presidential elec-
tion, Alachua County
Supervisor of Elections
Pam Carpenter said.
Added to 13,600
absentee ballots,
county voting turnout
has already surpassed
Christ totals from the Aug. 28
primary
Although Carpenter said she is glad
more people will be able to vote dur-
ing extended hours, she said it was a bit

STUDENT GOVERNMENT

Senate rejects vote on 2


By LAUREN BAKER
Alligator Writer
lbaker@alligator.org

Members of Student Senate voted against
considering a resolution Tuesday that would
have forced them to take a stance on an
amendment on the ballot concerning mar-
riage in Florida.
The proposed resolution opposed
Amendment 2, which would establish
Florida's definition of marriage as a legalized
union between one man and one woman if
approved.
Amendment 2 could lead to nullifying
Gainesville's domestic partnership registry,
which ensures equal opportunity for domes-
tic partners to provide care to each other in
life-threatening times.
Some senators felt the resolution, which
recognizes a student issue but takes no action,
was a divisive issue in which Student Senate
should not have a voice while others said it
was Senate's duty to debate and discuss con-
troversial issues.
Sen. Cecil Duffie, a Gator Party member
representing the freshman class, said he felt
the amendment's connection to gay marriage
made it a subject that should be avoided be-
cause of inefficient representation.
"How dare we senators present speak on
behalf of 50,000 students?" Duffie said.
However, Alfredo Pelicci, a member of
Fairness for All Families Coalition who helped
author the resolution, said the amendment
was not an issue of homosexuality.


"It affects 360,000 unmarried couples,"
Pelicci said, adding that 90 percent of the
couples are heterosexual, according to figures
from VoteNoOn2.com.
About 12 senators took issue with not al-
lowing the resolution to be voted on.
"Today, I'm not rising to call you all ho-
mophobes," said Orange and Blue Party Sen.
Sam Miorelli, who represents District D, as he
stood at the lectern. "I'm here to call you 'vo-
tophobes' because you're afraid of voting, and
you're afraid of speaking."

"How dare we senators
present speak on behalf of
50,000 students?"
Cecil Duffie
student senator


Independent Sen. Eric Wolf, one of the
sponsors of the resolution who represents the
College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, said gay
marriage is already banned in Florida, and the
amendment is just a ploy to bring a certain
group of voters to the polls.
If the amendment is approved, it could
also affect the partner benefits UF has offered
faculty members since 2006.
UF spokeswoman Janine Sikes said ben-
efits for UF employees were created to be na-
tionally competitive with other universities.
Sikes said she could not say if the amend-
ment's approval would have any effect on UF,
but it would be a while before it takes effect.


Safety zones continue


By THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Writer

Students who find themselves sepa-
rated from their friends or sobriety at
the UF-Georgia game this weekend
can stop by one of three safe zones
near The Jacksonville Landing and get
some help.
For the third year in a row, UF and
the city of Jacksonville will host the
Sideline Student Safety Zone, accord-
ing to a Monday UF news release.
On Friday and Saturday, students
and others will have access to first aid,
water, snacks, coffee, phone service,
universal cell phone chargers and di-
rections. Staff will be equipped with
computers to assist students as well.
The zones will provide access to
taxis and a free downtown trolley ser-
vice offered by Jacksonville.
One safety zone will be behind
Starbucks inside the Landing.
Another will be outside the Landing
at the intersection of Laura Street and
Independent Drive. The third location
will be behind the Welcome Center
across from Jacksonville Municipal
Stadium.
The zone will be open Friday night
from 4 p.m. to 3 a.m. and Saturday


from noon to 3 a.m., according to the
release.
Last year, providing the safety
zones cost UF at least $8,000, including
hotel expenses for the volunteers, said
Myra Morgan, UF's director of external
relations for Student Affairs.
Seventeen volunteers from UF will
be staffing the zones, along with EMTs
and two UF police officers. The officers
will only be helping students in need,
not enforcing the law, Morgan said.
The staff will not be there to get
intoxicated students in trouble with UF
or the police, she said.
"Our goal is to get
Student people back home in one
Life piece," she said.
The biggest problems
the staff encounters, she said, are
people who are drunk or have dead
cell phones and are trying to find their
friends or hotels.
UF created the zones in 2006 largely
as a result of two student deaths, one
in 2004 and one in 2005, during UF-
Georgia festivities in Jacksonville, she
said.
"(The students) just ended up in an
area where they shouldn't have been
by themselves," she said. "So that's one
thing we're trying to prevent."

Engineering students build robot to endorse Obama


* 'OBAMABOT' MADE ITS DEBUT
AT MICHELLE OBAMA'S RALLY.

By DAVID CUMMING
Alligator Writer

It crawled down the Turlington
Plaza pavement Tuesday afternoon,
clenching its iron fists and beaming
its blue eyes at everyone in its path.
ObamaBot, a nearly 6-foot-tall,
student-made robot, drew a crowd
of followers in its wake like a march-
ing band conductor on wheels, wav-
ing its android arms with campaign
posters from side to side in response
to the remote control toggling of one
of its creators.
"This is the first phase in demon-
stration robots," said Bryan Hood,
an electrical and mechanical engi-
neering junior, who thought of the
project a month ago.
"The long-run goal is to have
robotic marches on Washington,"
Hood said.
ObamaBot's campaign attack was
kept secret until its strike at Michelle
Obama's downtown rally Oct. 22.
The robot has made campus appear-
ances since Thursday.
"We're trying to get people aware
of the early voting and get people to
vote who wouldn't have voted oth-
erwise," Hood said.
Camilo Buscaron, a UF sopho-


more, and Andres Vargas, a mechan-
ical engineering graduate student,
worked with Hood during their
machine intelligence lab behind
closed doors. Even their lab profes-
sor didn't know what they were
building.
"Obama's message is impor-
tant to us, and the way we went
about it through robotics was
something we all could relate to,"
Buscaron said.
The machine is the result of two
weeks of construction and $250 of
their own funds. After three all-
nighters during the final stages of
assembly, ObamaBot could blink its
eyes, move its arms and roll and ro-
tate 360 degrees at 4 mph.
"Rather than holding up a sign
saying 'vote early,' we built some-
thing that we all could enjoy and
that represents our political beliefs,"
Vargas said.
Its anatomy, which consists of
remote-control motors, batteries and
transmitter receivers, came from
the students' spare parts collection,
Vargas said.
"We wanted to make it flashy, yet
simple," he said.
Other purchased pieces include
an LCD screen, light-up eyes and
an outer wood skeleton masked by
shiny metallic paint.
"It was a robot on a budget,"


Buscaron said.
ObamaBot's campus debut was
met with stares from some students
and cell-phone cameras from others.
"It at least gets people talking
about the election," said Daron
Williams, a coordinator for Florida
PIRG New Voters Project, who was
on Turlington Plaza telling students
about early voting.
Two-year-old Safya Burke, of
Tampa, approached the robot, which
stood almost four times her size,
without hesitation Thursday. She
reached out her hand, touching its
shiny surface, and quickly retracted
in laughter.
The next phase in "Obatics" is to
create a more lifelike face than the
current bright orange Styrofoam
head and add voice activation that
would utter Obama's campaign slo-
gans to passersby, Hood said.
"We all know that robots repre-
sent change and the future," he said.
"Potentially, we can have a lot of
them, much more so than ourselves.
Maybe in another four years, we'll
deploy a bunch of these and cam-
paign everywhere."

All students will receive Mozilla

Students can also choose from 28 optional

Mark Sisley, president of Florida Free

ing junior, said the group hosts Free Your
PC to promote the idea of free software.


"It's better because there is an
entire community that builds and
contributes to making software

Mark Sisley
president of Florida Free Culture

Sisley said free software does not only
mean the programs lack fees but that


anyone can contribute to the program and
make changes.
According to the Free Software

open-source software means anyone with
a computer may copy, study, modify and
redistribute the programs.

AROUND GAINESVILLE

Crowding concerns city


By ANDREA ASUAJE
Alligator Writer
aasuaje@alligator.org

A proposed cooperation between po-
lice officers and firefighters might reduce
fire safety hazards of crowded clubs in
Gainesville.
The city's Public Safety Committee
suggested Tuesday that Gainesville Police
officers be trained and authorized to work
with Gainesville Fire Rescue to control
overcrowding in bars and clubs.
At the moment, fire rescue has the sole
authority to control overcrowding in clubs,
but inspectors don't patrol every night.
Enlisting the help of GPD officers,
who are always present in the area, could
increase control, said Paul Folkers, an as-
sistant city manager.
City Commissioner Jeanna
Mastrodicasa, chairwoman of the com-
mittee, said she observed overcrowding
problems firsthand during a recent trip
downtown with Commissioner Thomas
Hawkins.
"It did not take anybody who had
training to know it was overcrowded,"
Mastrodicasa said. "When I say 'over-
crowded,' I'm really being polite."
Fire rescue Deputy Chief Tim Hayes
said more enforcement would help signifi-
cantly control the problem.
"It'll help to give us a little more teeth
in the downtown area," Hayes said.
GPD Capt. Lonnie Scott said over-


crowding is an obvious risk to public
safety but that he was concerned about
the number of officers available to patrol
the areas.
"I don't know if we will actually have
the staff to monitor every bar," Scott said.

"It'll help to give us a little more
teeth in the downtown area."
Tim Hayes
fire rescue deputy chief


Commissioner Lauren Poe said he
thought it would be an option to add staff
if an ordinance were passed.
"I see very little downside to this," Poe
said.

Book author visits UF


By THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Writer

Colleges and schools at every level
are becoming feminized, said Peg Tyre,
author of the best-selling book "The
Trouble With Boys," in a speech at UF on
Tuesday.
Tyre, a former Newsweek investiga-
tive journalist, wrote about education
issues for seven years at the magazine.
She spoke to a crowd of about 30 people
at Norman Hall as part of a panel that ad-
dressed issues facing boys in education.
In her speech, Tyre said 57 percent of
college undergraduates in the U.S. are
women. Almost 54 percent of UF's fall
2007 enrollment was female, according
to UF records.
She said the problem is that boys are
leaking from the education pipeline.
From preschool to high school, more boys
are dropping out, doing poorly and being
diagnosed with behavioral problems
such as Attention Deficit Hyperactivity
Disorder, she said.
Boys need to be able to run around
and read "swashbuckling" action books,
but schools are instead cutting recess and
female teachers are assigning books that
boys aren't interested in, she said.
In an interview before her speech, she
said the problem doesn't stop when boys


-.5


get to college.
"Boys study less; they do less home-
work; they spend more time playing
video games and at the gym; they get
lower GPAs than girls; they drop out at
greater rates," she said.
She said to get boys more interested in
school, big changes need to happen in the
education system.
When she was growing up, she said,
girls were encouraged
by society to focus
more on education,
and it worked. Now
that the tables have
turned, something
similar should happen
with boys, she said.
Tr "Boys need their
yre own revolution," she
said, "a renaissancee.'"
Tyre said one problem facing males
is that their brains don't mature until
they're about 25. Female brains mature at
about 16, she said.
Tyre said another problem is that
parents and schools have been pushing
children too early.
"We spend a lot of time turning our
young people into commodities for
college admission purposes," she said.
"And maybe we've pushed up against
the limits of human development."

Editorial


Yes, We Van

Early voting efforts pay

off in high turnout

For all our whiny screeds and nay saying, we would
like to cut our losses now and offer congratulations to tlme
early voting activists for their part in the huge early voting turn-
out in Alachua County and the rest of the state.
We would also like to give a pat on the back to the more
than 10 percent of registered Florida voters who have already
cast their ballots, forcing Gov. Charlie Crist to declare a state of
emergency.
Crist took this action to extend voting hours to 7 a.m. to 7
p.m. until Nov. 2, which is the last day to cast an early vote.
The governor hopes the increased voting time will maximize
Florida's turnout (we just hope that our state will avoid another
embarrassing voting fiasco).
When we first heard about the terminology used to accom-
plish this, we couldn't help but laugh. An aspiration for maxi-
mum voter turnout isn't what we would normally associate
with declaring a state of emergency.
Maybe we're stuck in 2004, but when we hear the term "state
of emergency," we tend to think of evacuation routes, Visqueen
and downed power lines, not an overzealous voter population.
The Editorial Board recognizes the importance of early
voting and voting in general (despite the occasional leave-us-
alone-while-we-go-to-class rant). The fact that campus orga-
nizations like UF Students for Barack Obama and the College
Republicans have physically driven people to the polls to cast
early votes is a testament to the dedication of political activists.
We are always glad to see Gators taking a lead role in impor-
tant social issues.


One in, one out


W we've got some po-
tentially devastat-
ing news for all of
UF's serious pregamers: The
city's Public Safety Committee
has recommended that the
Gainesville Police join forces
with Gainesville Fire Rescue
to prevent overcrowding at
the local bars and clubs.
In short, that means you
better forego the beer pong
tournament you were plan-
ning on having at your apart-
ment before catching a bus
downtown.
As soon as GPD is prop-
erly trained to help the fire
marshal, clubs are going to be
one-in-one-out faster than all
you Rue Bar addicts can finish
unbuttoning the top four but-
tons on your silk shirts. Better
forget the hair gel and the gal-
lon of Acqua Di Gio, too.
The city's plan to crack
down (again) on overcrowd-
ing at bars is being spearhead-


ed by City Commissioners
Jeanna Mastrodicasa
and Thomas Hawkins.
Mastrodicasa is also the chair-
woman of the city's Public
Safety Committee.
GPD Capt. Lonnie Scott
has voiced his concern about
not having a large enough
staff to enforce the city's
recommendation, but we
wouldn't count on a lack of
personnel to hold back this
recommendation.
From what we've seen
over the past few years, the
city and the fire marshal don't
screw around when it comes
to people funneling into bars
far beyond capacity.
If you're determined to
preserve your weekly trip to
Bishop's, then you better cut
back on your pregaming.
Otherwise, a close game
of flip cup will be the most
excitement you'll see all
weekend.

Election defeat would revitalize McCain


W hen I first registered to vote in 1999, I regis-
tered as a Republican. I did so to vote in the
2000 Republican Presidential primary for
Sen. John McCain, when he ran against then-Texas Gov.
George W. Bush.
My vote for McCain was the first vote of my adult
life. I became politically aware watching McCain tell
rich corn farmers in Iowa that he wasn't going to waste
America's wealth on their subsidies.'
He rebuked Christian conservatives for their un-
American preoccupation with moral authoritarianism
and refused to consort with their demagogues.
He was determined to trim down the military budget
by getting rid of archaic expenditures. He wanted to re-
build the military in a thoughtful way and provide a wor-
thy institution to those who wanted to fight for America.
It was his hope that a prideful, efficient military would
allow individual Americans the personal and collective
freedom to choose nonviolence in a violent world.
He was more than a maverick. He was the voice of
reason, crying out in the wilderness. I organized voter
registration drives in my dorm with the hope that new
voters like me would become McCain voters.
I proudly cast my vote for McCain in the Florida pri-
mary even after he fell victim to the most vicious sort of
political tactics. I clung to my hope that he would con-
tinue his battle.
Eight years later, McCain is still in an uphill battle.
The difference is that he now commands the political
zealots who were his undoing in 2000. He no longer
fights against unprincipled men and women. He now
lacks the righteous, thoughtful resilience he was armed
with in 2000.
The Republican Party has boxed McCain into a cor-


ner.
He is doing and saying what-
ever he is told by strategists with
a winning record. As a result, he
has been reduced to rallying the
emotionally charged and bla-
Michael Belle tantly confused masses against
letters@alligator.org his fellow patriots and former
supporters.
What made this man of steel
give up on fighting the good fight? What broke him?
Regardless of the answer, I believe this election has
the power to restore the old McCain if he loses. There
are worse things than losing elections.
Former Vice President Al Gore allowed a single po-
litical pursuit to eclipse his personal struggle with the
extinction of mankind. He convinced himself and others
that Bush and the entire Republican Party was the en-
emy, instead of the totality of forces that would destroy
our planet.
Al Gore's failure in 2000 forced him to reconsider
himself and his motives. This period of self-reflection
is what made him the man who inspires us today. He is
once again fighting the good fight. Slowly but surely, he
is gaining ground.
Denying McCain in his empty pursuit for the presi-
dency is the only thing that can return him to a purpose-
ful role in this world.
Vote for Sen. Barack Obama not just for the sake of our
country, but for our world.
Vote Obama for the sake of John McCain, a political
hero buried in the shambles of a broken party.

Letters to the Editor
Sexism not acceptable in any case
I'm tired of sexism being an acceptable
way to degrade someone in the Alligator.
Jake Miller's Tuesday column provided an-
other example: He labeled Alaska Gov. Sarah
Palin as the "Barbie Doll from Fargo."
I dislike Palin just as much as Jake prob-
ably does. She's an incompetent hypocrite
who stands against the issues I support.
It is never right to use sexism as a way to
degrade a woman, just as it is never right to
use racism for any reason.
Using sexism hurts all women, not just the


ones you don't like, Jake.

Biased activists are just campaigners
Maybe Graham Clark can help me find
one of these early voting activists who are
doing their civic duty and helping everybody
vote early. So far, I haven't found one on my
own.


What I have found, on three occasions
around campus and once knocking on my
dorm room door, was a person wearing a
blue shirt asking if I'm a supporter of Sen.
Barack Obama. I tell them no, and they say,
"oh" and stare at me like I've got the plague.
Then he or she will mumble "OK" and walk
away.
If they were doing their civic duty,
wouldn't they be trying to get every person
to vote, regardless of race, creed, origin, social
status or political affiliation?
Maybe I missed something, but when


you only want people who support your
viewpoint to vote, most people stop calling'
it civic activism and start calling it plain old
campaigning.
Of course, I really am shocked that Obama
supporters would want to pick and choose
who gets to vote. I mean, after all, their
candidate isn't doing anything like that with
wealth redistribution or anything like that,
right? That would be downright socialism.
Oh, wait.

Substantive discussion of women's issues lacking in election


SH ow much emotion is
too much?"
H "Is a pantsuit
appropriate for a presidential can-
didate?"
"Can a 'hockey mom' really be
vice president?"
I've got a question, too: Why
are these the only questions being
asked concerning women's issues
in this election?
I do not think a woman's political
qualifications have anything to do
with how much some people may
want to "bang her" (a not-so-subtle
way for.men to remind all women
where they think our place is).
Women are not a special interest
group, and our issues are not being


discussed.
Women need affordable health
care, easy and affordable access to
birth control and abortions, social
programs, equal pay for equal
work and stronger legal protections
against sexual harassment and as-
sault.
Women must have access to
health care that does not tie them
down to a man or a job and pro-
vides full coverage for women's
health issues like Pap smears, birth
control, abortion and the morning-
after pill.
Ovarian cancers can be fatal but
are treatable if caught early. To do
this, women must get routine Pap

terferes with
paying the


electric bill.
The fact that we have more
checkups and costs seems like a real
slap in the face considering women
are still making 77 cents to a man's
$1.
A woman's right to have control
over her body is crucial to her self-
determination, but we still don't
have control over our reproductive
rights.
Without access to affordable birth
control and comprehensive abor-
tion rights, women can't control if
or when they have children, which


leaves us with less money, time,
power and freedom than men.
When women decide to have
children, they often switch to part-
time work, are pushed into a less
competitive, lower paying job or
stay in the home to work for free.
We need better social programs.
We need to be provided with gov-
ernment benefits, such as universal
child care, health care, education,
overtime pay and compensation for
work done in the home.
These issues affect the daily lives
of more than half of our population.
Women struggle with these
problems every day: how to go to
work and take care of a sick child,
how to pay for increasing health


care costs, how to obtain an abortion
when 87 percent of counties in the
U.S. do not have a provider, how to
confront a co-worker about sexual
harassment and more.
Women are contributing to our
society alongside and without men
- fighting in the war, caring for the
sick, producing the next generation,
leading companies. It's time for our
issues to be addressed.

for Women is hosting an event about

Board to vote on chancellor


* UNF PRES. SELECTED.

University of North Florida
President John Delaney may
take over some duties of the
outgoing chancellor of Florida's
Board of Governors.
The board's chairwoman,
Sheila McDevitt, made a recom-
mendation Tuesday to appoint
Delaney as "president in resi-
dence" of the board. McDevitt's
recommendation will be voted
on by the board at its meeting in
Tallahassee on Nov. 20, accord-
ing to a news release.
Florida law, which forbids


holding dual office-holding,
prevents Delaney from taking
over the full duties of Mark
Rosenberg, outgoing chancellor.
Delaney will
remain UNF
president, the
release stated.
Delaney will
not be paid
for his work
as partial
chancellor.
Delaney B i 1 1
Edmonds, board spokesman,
said. the board has never ap-
pointed a partial chancellor and


had to come up with a title,
president in residence, for it.
Edmonds said it was im-
portant for the board to find
a temporary replacement to
handle some responsibilities af-
ter Rosenberg leaves in February
and before the new chancellor
is chosen, which could come in
July.
He said Delaney will mostly
work to make sure that issues
facing the state's 11 public uni-
versities receive attention from
the state Legislature, which be-
gins its session in March.

Tuesday had the highest turnout yet, with 4,215
ballots cast, Carpenter said. Within the first hour of
poll openings, 341 voters had cast their ballot, she
said.
Turnout has been steady since early voting began

votes a day.
"We're looking for an 80 percent

turnout.
An energized and engaged elector-
ate has been a factor for the high numbers, she said.
Students have also had an effect on the turnout,
she said, and many are taking advantage of trans-
portation being offered to the polls by UF groups
including UF College Republicans and UF Students
for Barack Obama.
While the most common complaint to the state
office has been a long wait in line, Carpenter said
the typical wait in Alachua County has been 10
minutes.
"The longest wait time we've had was about 30
minutes on Sunday," she said.

Police talk UF employee down from campus rooftop


* HE WAS ON TOP OF THE DENTAL
TOWER NEAR ARCHER ROAD.

By KATIE GALLAGHER and
ASHLEY HEMMY
Alligator Staff Writers

A UF employee standing at the edge of the
roof of the Dental Tower was talked down by
University Police on Tuesday afternoon.
The man, a 39-year-old employee with UF's


Physical Plant Division, was brought to the
emergency room at Shands at UF, UPD spokes-
man Capt. Jeff Holcomb said. He was referred
to Meridian Behavioral Healthcare.
Holcomb said police did not know if the
man intended to jump off the building, near
Archer Road and Center Drive, but he ap-
peared in danger of falling several times.
Police responded to a call from employees
at Shands at about 3:45 p.m.
Officers spent about half an hour talking


to the man before he came down from outside
the railing on the southeast comer of the roof,
Holcomb said. He said the door to the roof is
usually locked, but the man may have gotten
the keys through his job.
On Samantha Richardson, a
Campus Gainesville resident, said she
was waiting for the bus when
another woman pointed out the man on the
roof. A group of about 50 gathered to watch
and pray, Richardson said.


"It was scary," she said. "Something you'd
see in a movie."
Sam Brill, an audio-visual specialist at the
dental school, said there was little disruption
in the building. He said he heard rumors that
someone was on the roof but didn't go out.
"It was just hallway chatter," Brill said.
Holcomb said traffic was delayed when
Gainesville Fire Rescue trucks that responded
to the scene blocked a westbound lane on
Archer Road for more than an hour.


UF MARKETING

UF gradually branches out to online social networking


By EMILY BLAKE
Alligator Writer


As young people live more of
their social lives online, universi-
ties are plunging into the social
networking world to interact with
past, present and future students.
Facebook applications such as
"Blackboard Sync" and "Courses
2.0" allow students at participating
universities to access grades, post
schedules and view classmates.
UF, on the other hand, is still
testing the water.
Because of UF's strict pri-
vacy policies, students can't
use the applications, according
to Jeff Stevens, webmaster for


UF's College of Liberal Arts and
Sciences.
Under UF's acceptable use
policy, all material used for day-
to-day business must be done
through a UF domain, Stevens
said. If the policy were to allow
school information to be accessed
through another Web site, such
as Facebook, information would
have to be transferred and would
become vulnerable to hacking.
"It's always a gray area when
you're building something outside
of the university," he said.
The policies are in place to en-
sure UF is following the Family
Educational Rights and Privacy
Act, which regulates what student
information can be shared, accord-


"Facebook has taken off
tremendously. It's going to
be something that snow-
balls and grows over time."
Jeff Stevens
webmaster for UF's College of
Liberal Arts and Sciences

ing to Christine Schoaff, director of
UF Web Administration.
Although UF. will not likely
transfer student information to
a third-party domain such as
Facebook, Stevens said he expects-
students will see an increase in
participation among colleges and
teachers within the next few years.


"Facebook has taken off tre-
mendously," he said. "It's going to
be something that snowballs and
grows over time."
Stevens said the Facebook page
he created in June for CLAS has
helped bring more students to the
college's events.
Martin Wortman, the aca-
demic program coordinator for the
Institute of Food and Agricultural
Sciences in Plant City, said he set
up a Facebook page a few months
ago to target potential students.
He said he hoped it would
serve as a recruitment tool because
the program is six years old and at-
tracts fewer applicants than other
campuses.
"To get students into my pro-


gram, I really have to work hard,"
he said. "Because it's free, I'm go-
ing to give Facebook a shot."
The UF Alumni Association is
planning to integrate Facebook
with the Gator Nation Network in
light of Facebook's appeal to alum-
ni, said Katie Marquis, director of
membership and marketing.
Marquis said Affinity Circles,
creator of the Gator Nation
Network, plans to integrate the
network's features primarily
professional resources such as job
listings into Facebook by the
end of the year.
She said the network has more
than 30,000 users, and the inte-
gration is expected to bring more
Gators aboard.

Gators use early loss to Rebels as motivation


D-LINE, from page 16


but he's getting better. It's easy to forget because he
plays so hard and practices so hard that he's still a
freshman. A true freshman playing in the trenches
in the SEC.
"He's doing a good job. We'll continue to roll him
and (Terron) Sanders. Both of them did a lot of good
things Saturday in our win. He just has a phenome-
nal future, and he'll keep getting better and better."
With a young player like Patchan in the mix the
biggest challenge for McCarney may not be continu-
ing the success of his young defensive line, it could
be keeping Patchan as part of that unit.
Patchan is versatile enough to play on both sides
and may be asked to move back if injury woes were
to thin out the Gators offensive line.


M IKE, from page 16


said instead of pleading the fifth.
When Spikes was asked about
Georgia's offense, he should've
said, "Matt Stafford telegraphs his
passes. I'm going to pick-six him,
spike the ball and drop kick Uga
VII into the stands."
When asked about his feelings
about the 42-30 loss to Georgia,
Tim Tebow should have said,
"Whenever I start to get down
about that game, I just look at my
Heisman Trophy and think, 'How
many Heismans does Knowshon


"He's enjoying playing both sides of the ball, but
I'll do everything I can (to keep him on defense),"
McCarey said. "I'm 55, but I'm still a good fighter.
I'll fight for him."
UF's defense appeared to take a step back in its
crushing 31-30 loss to Mississippi at
home. The Rebels finished with 140
rushing yards, including a 40-yard
touchdown run late in the third quar-
Football ter.
Since then, the Gators appear tbe
using that game as motivation.
"It's just guys being confident and guys making a
play," junior middle linebacker Brandon Spikes said.
"We're trying to prepare better, and every game we
just want to go out and play hard. We took a step
back against Ole Miss, but I think we learned from
it."


have? That's right, zero.' You want
a piece of Hel5man? Bring it, 'cuz
this is my house. We're in Duval
now."
And we can only imagine what
Meyer would say if the gloves
were off. He was quoted in his
biography as saying Georgia's cel-
ebration will forever be in his mind
and that, "We'll handle it, and it's
going to be a big deal."
He clearly has a bone to pick
with Georgia coach Mark Richt, so
maybe he'd say, "Richt can't coach.
I did a little study, and on aver-
age, his players only give three to
five seconds of relentless effort on
each play. What a joke! And they


usually meet just six of 10 goals in
the kicking game. I saw better than
that at Utah."
Would any of that make a dif-
ference in the game? Other than
Georgia bringing extra protection
for Uga, probably not.
Both teams already have all the
motivation they should need.
UF wants revenge, Georgia
still has that recent series history
to erase, and they both want the
Southeastern Conference title.
So why should they trash talk?
Well, it's just fun.
Imagine what this game would
be like if Georgia didn't rush the
field last year.

UF FOOTBALL

Patched up D-line


adds more depth


By KARL HYPPOLITE
Alligator Staff Writer
khyppolite@alligator.org

It wasn't long ago that UF's
rushing defense was a sieve
and depth on the defensive
line was unheard of.
After giving up more than
25 points per game and finish-
ing last in nearly every defen-
sive statistic, the Gators lead
the Southeastern Conference
in scoring defense (11.9 points
per game), are third in rushing
defense (102.7) and in total de-
fense (273.4).
One of the keys to vast
improvement in defense is the'
depth of the defensive line.
The Gators' line goes about
eight or nine deep, allowing
a constant rotation of fresh
bodies to be on the field at all
times.
"This started last March
when we started playing
spring ball," defensive line


coach Dan McCarney said.
"We're playing lots of guys,
and there's a good rotation.
The twos are starting to under-
stand, and I think the ones are
too. You're not a two, you're a
one. Get out there and go Duke
(Lemmens). Get out there and
go Carlos (Dunlap)."
Freshman Matt Patchan has
played a large role in estab-
lishing depth on the defensive
line. Patchan was an All-
American offensive lineman in
high school, but has made an
impact in moving over to the
defensive line.
Coaches have praised
Patchan's work ethic through-
out the season, and he was
finally rewarded with his first
career start in Saturday's 63-5
romp over Kentucky.
"He's getting better, he re-
ally is," McCarney said. "He
didn't have a super game,

Ground game gets going


By BRIAN STEELE

Last season, at least according to UF coach
Urban Meyer, the Gators' running backs were
"non-functional."
Now they can drop that pesky prefix. The
Gators have 19 rushing touchdowns, and
Chris Rainey and Jeff Demps have more than
300 yards each on the ground this season.
New running backs coach Kenny Carter has
made his debut a successful one.
"Fundamentally and statistically, (Carter's)
done a very nice job," Meyer said.
The improvement has been feltby the play-
ers, too. Last year, the Gators relied mainly on
quarterback Tim Tebow and receiver Percy
Harvin on the ground game.
"There's a big improvement. We've got
more depth," junior Brandon James said.
"We've got (Chris) Rainey and (Jeff) Demps
and Kestahn Moore and (Emmanuel) Moody
and me. There are a lot of playmakers. They
just feel like they can make plays, and when


they get in the games it carries over."

RECRUITS ON THE LINE: The Gators are going
head to head against Georgia in more than one
way on Saturday. UF has eight players from
Georgia, and Meyer gave a quick response
when asked how important on a scale from 1
to 10 this game is for recruiting the state.
"10. 10. 10. 10. 10. 10," Meyer said. "Very

very good players from
Georgia and vice versa."

Football INJURY UPDATES: Senior left
guard Jim Tartt practiced
Tuesday, but his status is still uncertain for
Saturday's game. Tartt is still having trouble
getting strength back in his surgically re-
paired shoulder. Freshman cornerback Janoris
Jenkins did not practice Tuesday, but he is ex-
pected to practice today with a "bruised shin,"
according to Meyer. Redshirt sophomore run-
ning back Emmanuel Moody also practiced.
Moody has been out sinde the Mississippi
game on Sept. 27.


What the Gators would say


A s I left the UF-Georgia game
last season, two thoughts ran
through my head.
First, I couldn't have been any
more wrong about saying the rivalry
was dying because of the neutral site
location. The "Gator Stomp" made
sure of that, as the game will be as
heated as ever Saturday.
Second, I thought, "Wow, there's
going to be some great trash talk for
this next year."
After all, last season Percy Harvin
said he didn't understand why the
Gators and Bulldogs annual matchup
was still a rivalry game "if we kill
them every year," and last year's No.
2 receiver Andre Caldwell dished his
usual smack about how he would lay
waste to the Bulldogs' secondary.
Since Georgia showed up the
Gators in 2007, I figured this year
would be filled with revenge state-
ments and the like, but we've been
robbed of that, as Urban Meyer issued
a gag order on his players to keep
them from discussing the celebration
and anything else that might be
remotely interesting.

On Tuesday,
linebacker
Brandon Spikes
even no-com-
mented on stop-
ping Georgia's
Knowshon
Moreno and on
the presiden-
tial election, a


subject he had
been pretty outspoken on after sport-
ing Barack Obama T-shirts on several
occasions. Now, while Meyer's move
took some of the fun out of this ri-
valry week, it was probably a smart
move. By keeping all the excitement
and frustration bottled behind closed
doors, it could ratchet up the team's
intensity.
While it might have been a good
coaching move for Meyer to keep his
players quiet, it still sucks. There's
no question this is one of the biggest
games of the college football season,
and it deserves trash talk. So here's
what I wish some players would have
