You may be in luck. The Gainesville City Commission sent the ordinances that restrict liquor sales at stores and restaurants to the city Public Safety Committee on Thursday for possible revisions. The citys code of ordinances limits the sale of liquor on Sunday at businesses to the hours of 1 p.m. to 11 p.m. and prohibits the sale of packaged liquor at stores. Monday through Saturday, businesses can serve liquor from 7 a.m. to 2 a.m. Business owner Shawn Shepherd asked the commission to make the rules the same for each day. Shepherd, who owns the Vellos Brickstreet Grill downtown, said the economic impact of increasing the sale hours would be huge. He estimated that the change could mean That would be huge to any small business, he said. City Commissioner Jeanna Mastrodicasa, chair of the Public Safety Commission, said the committee might consider extending the hours restaurants can serve liquor Sunday morning, b ut she said she doesnt think the committee will change the rules for liquor stores or extend the night hours for restaurants that serve liquor on Sundays. Sometimes, its OK to go home and dry out a little bit, she said. City committee may revise rules for selling liquor on Sundays MORGAN WATKINS Alligator Staff Writer Gators fans looking to buy football tickets for the next home game from someone on the street should be wary they could be paying big bucks for counterfeit tickets. Tommy Kleckleys niece traveled from New Hampshire to see her family and watch the Gators play the University of Alabama on Saturday. Thanks to two bogus tickets, she never laid eyes on Florida Field. Kleckley, 50, of Gainesville, said his niece, Katrice Sutherland, and her husband, Tim, who are both in their late 30s, bought tickets from a stranger on University Avenue on Saturday for about $100 apiece. When they showed their tickets to the Stadium, employees said they were counterfeit.

Bucella, 36, owner of Addiction Tattoo, said he chose those two charities because he grew up in a house where his mother was beaten.

He said the shop has a great relationship with the Gainesville Police Department and a lot of the oftattoos and piercings.

The myth of the unicorn stems from an actual type of goat with a single horn that was once bred in Persia, said Dallas Tanner, a 55-yearold cryptozoologist from South Car olina. Today, unicorns, along with Big Foot and thunderbirds, are a myth. But Tanner makes a living researching these animals to prove that they once existed. I talk about animals rumored to Tanner said. The Reitz Union Board Entertainment is bringing Tanner to speak to UF students at 8 p.m. Tuesday at the Orange & Brew to discuss his career as a cyrptozoologist and author. Cryptozoology is the study of hidden animals. The event is free and open to the public. RUB Entertainment is paying him $250 for travel and board, said Ellie Carpo, the co-director of lectur ers and comedians committee. I got the idea to bring a cryptozoologist after watching really, really bad monster movies, Carpo said. The director last year recommended someone else, but Carpo said she wanted to bring someone different and cater to a different crowd. At the event, Tanner will talk about how the science and histories of previous eras have become the myths and legends of today. Tanner said he started his career as a cryptozoologist to prove a point. ow of the Thunderbird, Tanner was told that there was nothing dealing with cryptozoology in the southeastern United States. He attempted to prove everyone wrong, and he said he believes to have succeeded.

She just always knew. She is now a mathematics senior at UF and a UFTeach scholar. There are about 300 students in the program, according to Dimple Malik Flesner, associate director of the program.

The UFTeach program gets its funding year grant issued by the National Math and Science Initiative for $2.4 million along with an endowment from the Tampa-based Helios Education Foundation, according to the release. Over the past year, UFTeach has made changes to methods of retention and recruitment, Flesner said. The largest change has been using student volunteers and interns involved in UFTeach instead of the faculty and staff to recruit new members. Once the students begin the UFTeach program, peer mentors are assigned to them according to their line of study. McNeill is one of four math mentors, and there are also four science mentors. The peer mentors encourage beginning students and help McNeill said. Flesner said UFTeach has revamped its website, now displaying up-to-date information and several student testimonials.

The team was given 40 hours to analyze and develop a team analysis of a business case about an Asianbased organization using Microsoft Powerpoint 2007. We are very proud of our students, Tucker said. At the competition, our students crafted and delivered an effective business presentation exhibiting the knowledge and poise worthy of The teams were given 15 minutes for their presentations rounds followed by a 15-minute question-and-answer session.

They baked a batch of 55 red-coatwhich they handed out as samples on the UF campus. Sanchez, 19, and Veloz, 18, have created Gator Pops Bakery, a specialty bake shop, out of their apartment kitchen. The bakery specializes in catering cake pops, bite-sized, coated balls of cake on a stick, akin to lollipops. Sanchez, a linguistics sophomore pops for a meet-and-greet event for a community service group. I wanted to bring something different, not the traditional cookies or cupcakes, she said. The positive reaction she received from guests at the event encouraged her to start the business with best friend Veloz, whom she met four years ago in a high school chorus class. Baking the cake pops started as a hobby, Sanchez said, but now that others are enjoying it, were excited to see where the bakery takes us. The two friends, who refer to themselves as baking sisters, look to market their cake pops to sororities and other on-campus organizations hosting events. Gator Pops Bakery, which is set to ie, chocolate fudge, milk chocolate, red velvet, yellow cake and lemon cake, To place a custom catering order, colors, design and, if desired, edible decorations. Each order requires a minimum of 20 cake pops and must be placed at least two days before the date the pops are needed. While prices vary, a basic, minimum order with any an average of $25. Customers can pick up their order or have it delivered. chez and Veloz have created a website, gatorpopsbakery.weebly.com, and a Facebook page. Some people look at the cake pops and wonder how we even make them, Sanchez said. But, we make everything from scratch, Veloz said. It takes a long time and its messy. We make the cake, destroy it, make it again, freeze it, decorate it. Its not like a one-stop shop.Students create bake shop from scratchMeyers will still be involved on campustions Committee chairman and Student Senate president. He plans to graduate in the spring with a degree in food and resource economics. Meyers said he will still be involved on campus in the future and will help Reynolds make the transition into his role as president. Anthony is an experienced and capable leader who has cials and the Board of Trustees. Having him as my successor makes this decision easier. Reynolds, who served as a director with Students Taking Action Against Racism and as an SG Cabinet chairman, said but that he is ready to take the position. At the end of day I had no intention of being Student Body president, Reynolds said. I didnt run for Student Body feelings before, I want to do the very best job that I can. Reynolds said he will take his role as the voice of students seriously and wants to hear directly from them their concerns and desires. Students Party Sen. Carly Wilson and another friend of Meyers, said the announcement came as a shock to her and the rest of her party. We rarely agreed with him in the political sense, but we hope everything works out OK for him, she said. Were all Gators, and we wish him the best.

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 7, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 7Letters to the EditorTen years of war is too muchTen years ago today, President Bush launched Operation Enduring Freedom, the United States-led invasion of Afghanistan. war on terror. The original mission to topple the Taliban and kill or capture al-Qaida leaders, including Osama bin Laden has been replaced by a futile policy of nation-building. Despite the rhetoric of his 2008 campaign, President Obama has done little to end the wars of his predecessor. Waging war is expensive. To date, the government has blown about $460 billion on the war in Afghanistan and about $798 billion in Iraq. $1.2 trillion dollars on one of the most destruccost of the wars is, the human cost is far more sobering. For 10 years, our soldiers have been enmeshed in the tangle of tribal allegiances and state corruption that characterize Afghan politics. In the last four years, U.S. casualties have risen at an alarming rate, but the hardships suffered by the Afghan people are even more disconcerting. The United States has suffered about 1,500 casualties in Afghanistan alone. When Iraq is included, the total climbs to about 40,000 United States troops killed or wounded. Civilian deaths in the war on terror are estimated to number in the hundreds of thousands. The extension of a bloody and pointless war is inexcusable. As the 10th year of must push for an end before 10 years of war becomes 11. I urge you to take a stand against the war on terror today on the Plaza of the Americas with UF Libertarians and Students for a Democratic Society. Ten years of war is 10 years William Tew UF Libertarians president There is a very interesting thought experiment, widely referred to as the Trolley Problem, which poses the people by diverting a trolley away from them toward a man laying in a hammock who would be killed instead. Perhaps the same dilemma is being raised by many American citizens as to whether the death of al-Awlaki was really called for. I am a native from India who came to the U.S. seeking higher and better education, and I may not have a very strong hold its war against terror. But since we, as Indians, live a few blocks away from Afghanistan, I can share my ideas surrounding this issue, perhaps with a different perspective. I am a strong supporter of the fact that terrorism has no religion and no nationalguided in aim and devoid of humanity. Whenever a terrorist is killed, there is a chance that maybe we have saved a thousand lives somewhere else. Every human being deserves to live, but what happens to those who have lost their touch with humanity? Here, the question is not about killing a person; here, the question is about the very idea that is driving some people to the path of destruction. When Osama bin Laden was killed, no one talked about his nationality. The only concern was that justice should prevail. every terrorist who has waged war against a nation, its people and the very basis on which the nation is founded? We should take this in a broader sense instead of narrowing down the valor of American soldiers to just killing a person. As a matter of fact, what America has done has just bolstered its image on the war against terror. Now the world knows that the U.S. is adamant on its stand of wiping out terrorism. You want to make Earth a better place for us and for future generations. By killing a terrorist, America has sent a strong message that the U.S. and its people do not treat terrorists with any bias. Let them be a citizen of any nation; if they are involved in terrorizing innocent people, they have lost touch with humanity. and a citizen of a nation second. America did a great and brave thing by killing a ter rorist, supporting the notion that terrorists, in the end, do not belong to any country.

The soda bottle is melted with other No. 1 plastics at a treatment facility so it can be recycled and remade. But if you melt blend, and the whole batch is considered contaminated.

8, ALLIGATOR FRIDAY, OCTOBER 7, 2011 Alex Catalano / AlligatorVolunteering members of RecSports serve food to a man at St. Francis House on Thursday. Currently, St. Francis House is restricted to a 130-meal limit per day. LOCAL MEREDITH RUTLANDAlligator Staff WriterThe St. Francis House is one meeting away from shedding its 130-meal limit. The Gainesville City Commission voted unanimously to approve its second reading of the city soupkitchen meal-limit change. Commissioners voted to change the meal limit to a time limit at a meeting Aug. 18. The meal limit restricted the citys soup kitchens to serving 130 meals a day. The number limit, which excluded Christmas, Thanksgiving and a day of the shelters choice, will be replaced by a time limit of three hours a day for meals. The hours must be continuous, and meals must be served between 8:30 a.m. and 7 p.m. On paper, the rule applies to all city soup kitchens, but in practice, the St. Francis House is the only soup kitchen that has to follow the limit. St. Francis House Executive Director Kent Vann said he plans to serve lunch from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the soup kitchen once the change is made. Theres one last detail to work out: The City Plan Board has to approve the measure on Nov. 1. After that, the St. Francis House can start operating under the new rule. Hopefully, I can start the very next day, Vann said. He said he is tentative about feeling excited until all the details are hammered out. Im feeling good that were even at this point right now, he said. JESSICA OLIVERAlligator Contributing WriterOff-roading is returning to UF. After a four-year hiatus, Gator Motor sports will be building the off-road baja car once again. The last baja car won third place in 2008 in the Baja SAE short for Society of Automotive Engineers in Montreal with a four-person team. However, due to a lack of members and funding, the motorsports team decided to work on only one car, the formula race car, in 2009. Recruiting began at the beginning of the semester for the new baja team, and eight people have expressed interest to the teams executive board members. However, the team will need at least 10 members in order for the workload to be manageable, said Eduardo Rondon, captain of the formula team. Anyone can join the team regardless of his or her major or level of experience. Its an amazing resume builder. The program allows students to learn engineer ing concepts far earlier than they would in their coursework, Rondon said.

Sure, you go to college and listen to hip-hop and once traveled to Israel on a Birthright trip; but, deep down, you love the simplicities of the South. Dont pretend otherwise we here at the alligatorSports Brand Picks Column tailgated last Saturday, and we saw you in your jort-wearing, Toby Keithloving glory. Even you yankees who only enrolled at Florida to appear interesting to your high school classmates: Youre southern now. Theres no going back; youve already gone tubing down Ichetucknee Springs and tasted real barbecue. And thats OK, because the South is what makes football great. Nobody calls in to radio stations, trolls message boards or poisons a rivals historic trees quite like us rednecks. Thats why we were torn up when a classic redneck Hank Williams Jr., the Elvis of Monday Night Football sullied our favorite game with all that Hitler talk. But lets not get too sad. There are still plenty of famous rednecks who love football and keep their politics in perspective. Never will that be more on display than at the Red River Rivalry, going down this Saturday at the Cotton Bowl. We let a couple of our good ol sports writers debate. Florida soccer coach Becky Burleigh and the Gators soccer team has a special connection to breast cancer awareness. See Story, Page 14. LAST YEARS LOSS TO ALABAMA STARTED THREEGAME LOSING STREAK. GREG LUCAAlligator Staff Writer This year was supposed to be different. The Gators have a new coach, Will Muschamp, new expectations season has been a mirror image of 2010. Last year, the Gators won their 23.5 points, the closest a 14-point win against Tennessee, before losing to Alabama by 25. This season, the Gators won erage 31.3 points, the closest a 10-point win against Tennessee, before losing to Alabama by 28. In 2010, UF let the beatdown at the hands of Alabama turn into a free-fall, losing its next two games en route to a 9-5 season. How will the 2011 team respond? Can the Gators handle adversity? I dont have any doubt at all, redshirt freshman tackle Chaz Green said of the teams ability to respond to adversity. Ive got the had one bump in the road. Were still our whole goal is to get to Atlanta. Theyre still out there, theyre still possible. So Ive got With South Carolina falling to Auburn last weekend, Florida remains in a three-way tie, also with Georgia, for the lead in the Southeastern Conferences East division.

Theres always a chance. But for the Gators to pull off the improbRun the ball and stop the run. To win in the Southeastern Conference, this is impor tant every week. Its even more important this Saturday, as Florida is coming off its worst performances of the season in both regards against Alabama. LSU may be ranked seventh in the SEC in rushing, but the Tigers have racked up their 172.6-yard average against quality opponents. They also tout the nations third-ranked rush defense, holding teams like Oregon and Mississippi State in check. Protect the quarterback. As we creep closer to game day, it appears freshman Jeff Driskel is the most likely candidate to start. Driskel will need protection from an offensive line that looked inept at times against Alabama, especially if hes going to atone for the turnover woes that have plagued him in limited playing time this season.

14, ALLIGATOR FRIDAY, OCTOBER 7, 2011 ALEX PECKHAM Alligator Writer As the Florida mens and womens swimming teams prepare for the 2011-12 season, there will certainly be no shortage of motivation. Aside from their usual goals within Southeastern Conference and NCAA competition, the 2012 Summer Olympic Games in London are fast approaching, and plenty of Florida swimmers hope to give themselves the opportunity to perform for their respective nations on the world stage. The Olympics are the biggest event in swimming, the time once every four years when the eyes of the world will be focused on the sport. Coaches are not excluded from excitement, as Florida coach Gregg Troy will serve as head coach for the U.S. mens squad in London. But, for now, his focus is solely on his UF swimmers. The foreign guys have a pretty good chance of making their Olympic team and almost all of our team said. C oaches are hoping the motivation of the upcoming Olympic season translates into results for the mens and womens teams, who hope to spring when they host the All-Florida Invitational today through Sunday. Preliminary races will begin at 10 at 7 p.m. NCAA Championships in March, but some key departures leave many expecting less out of this years team. While Troy admitted the losses of standout seniors and NCAA Champions Brett Fraser and Conor Dwyer doesnt help, he was very optimistic about his 12-man incoming freshman class. The good side of (our youth) is that the future of this program is very speed of the events changes dramatically. One of the big challenges is to a different world than what theyre Floridas women were disappointNCAA Championships, but most of the swimmers from last years team are back and ready to improve on that result. Sophomore Elizabeth Beisel, who at the national championship, as well as seniors Sarah Bateman, Teresa Crippen and Shara Stafford will all be back in the pool for the Gators this fall. Troy said. Its great to have Crippen and Shara back, but they cant swim all the events, so were going to have to get some improvements from our sophomore class, and rely on some Gators motivated by potential Olympic berthsSOCCER JOSH JURNOVOY Alligator Writer Pink hair and pink shirts will stick out amongst the usual orange and blue tonight at Pressly Stadium.

This is just an opportunity for us to promote that awareness and to feel blessed that Breast cancer is an issue that hits home for Burleigh, whose mother, Nancy, is a survivor. Burleigh said she values having the opportunity to promote awareness of any cancer, as her mother has suffered from the disease in three other forms, including stomach cancer. While Burleigh has always been at her mothers side throughout all of her health issues, Nancy has never allowed it to affect the coach on the job. My mom makes that easy because she said. She just enjoys any support that we give her. She doesnt like to make a big deal out Whether it is through visiting the hospital or talking to her on the phone, Burleigh said she tries to keep in touch with her mother every day. She says that her father, Ron, has played a huge role in the management of Nancys health, and the results have shown. You would never see any limitations how she has been so positive through all of The importance of raising cancer awareness is not something that is lost on Beckys players, either.

And it means a lot to us as a team for her to be our coach to represent that and Last summer, Williamson helped honor her moms best friend, who had just been diagnosed with breast cancer, when Williamson took part in the Susan G.

Betting lines have No. 1 LSU (5-0, 2-0 SEC) as a 14-point favorite in its matchup with No. 17 Florida (4-1, 2-1 SEC) Saturday at 3:30 p.m. in Baton Rouge, La. In one game, UF fell from national contender to mere SEC hopeful. Theres kind of doubt, junior wide receiver Frankie Hammond said. That loss kind of hit us. But we still have to go out and prove ourselves, so its just us against the world. Nobody believes we can do it but us, and were going to go out there and prove that. Muschamp said that a number of players came in on Sunday, the teams Sophomore cornerback Jaylen Watkins said the loss made a noticeable difference in the locker room and brought the Gators closer together. And offensive coordinator Charlie Weis said the team has kept a level head thanks to a veteran coaching staff. Our staff have all been through experiences like this before, and weve got a good idea how to handle it, Weis said. It isnt like panic sets in, pandemonium sets in. Its a very matter of fact evaluation of what we do. If Weis is right, Florida could still end the season as SEC Champion. But, if hes wrong, 2011 could easily be a case of dj vu.

Oklahoma (+10) will win this slobberknocker because The Sooners know how to ground and pound, and theyve got Monday Night Raw announcer Jim Ross on the sidelines to keep them sharp. On offense, Oklahoma will take a page out of J.R.s barbecue cookbook and slow-roast the defense. Expect the Sooners offensive line to open holes for Dom Whaley. And, once Texas is lulled to sleep, OU quarterback Landry Jones will hook up with Ryan Broyles for a couple scores. From there, Texas doesnt stand a chance because Oklaand everything grows.

You may be in luck. The Gainesville City Commission sent the ordinances that restrict liquor sales at stores and restaurants to the city Public Safety Committee on Thursday for possible revisions. The citys code of ordinances limits the sale of liquor on Sunday at businesses to the hours of 1 p.m. to 11 p.m. and prohibits the sale of packaged liquor at stores. Monday through Saturday, businesses can serve liquor from 7 a.m. to 2 a.m. Business owner Shawn Shepherd asked the commission to make the rules the same for each day. Shepherd, who owns the Vellos Brickstreet Grill downtown, said the economic impact of increasing the sale hours would be huge. He estimated that the change could mean That would be huge to any small business, he said. City Commissioner Jeanna Mastrodicasa, chair of the Public Safety Commission, said the committee might consider extending the hours restaurants can serve liquor Sunday morning, b ut she said she doesnt think the committee will change the rules for liquor stores or extend the night hours for restaurants that serve liquor on Sundays. Sometimes, its OK to go home and dry out a little bit, she said.

The myth of the unicorn stems from an actual type of goat with a single horn that was once bred in Persia, said Dallas Tanner, a 55-yearold cryptozoologist from South Car olina. Today, unicorns, along with Big Foot and thunderbirds, are a myth. But Tanner makes a living researching these animals to prove that they once existed. I talk about animals rumored to Tanner said. The Reitz Union Board Entertainment is bringing Tanner to speak to UF students at 8 p.m. Tuesday at the Orange & Brew to discuss his career as a cyrptozoologist and author. Cryptozoology is the study of hidden animals. The event is free and open to the public. RUB Entertainment is paying him $250 for travel and board, said Ellie Carpo, the co-director of lectur ers and comedians committee. I got the idea to bring a cryptozoologist after watching really, really bad monster movies, Carpo said. The director last year recommended someone else, but Carpo said she wanted to bring someone different and cater to a different crowd. At the event, Tanner will talk about how the science and histories of previous eras have become the myths and legends of today. Tanner said he started his career as a cryptozoologist to prove a point. ow of the Thunderbird, Tanner was told that there was nothing dealing with cryptozoology in the southeastern United States.

The UFTeach program gets its funding year grant issued by the National Math and Science Initiative for $2.4 million along with an endowment from the Tampa-based Helios Education Foundation, according to the release. Over the past year, UFTeach has made changes to methods of retention and recruitment, Flesner said. The largest change has been using student volunteers and interns involved in UFTeach instead of the faculty and staff to recruit new members.

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 7, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 5Dana Burke / Alligator StaffStudent Body President Ben Meyers announced Thursday that he will be resigning from his position for personal reasons. A C ADEMICS ORIANA PAOLILLOAlligator Contributing WriterUF students were invited to represent the United States in the Asian Business Case Competition in Singapore this week. And they didnt disappoint. The team of four Warrington College of Business Administration students placed second in the competition, which started Saturday, said Horace Tucker, associate director for the War rington College of Business Administration. The event, which was hosted by Nanyang Business School in Singapore, focused on sustainability and business. The team was given 40 hours to analyze and develop a team analysis of a business case about an Asianbased organization using Microsoft Powerpoint 2007. We are very proud of our students, Tucker said. At the competition, our students crafted and delivered an effective business presentation exhibiting the knowledge and poise worthy of The teams were given 15 minutes for their presentations rounds followed by a 15-minute question-and-answer session. The team was composed of Amanda Aschenbrenner, mar keting senior; Mikaela Moore, international studies senior; Meng Liu, accounting and master of sciliam Hadley, accounting senior. All the students are 21 years old. Universities from New Zealand, the Netherlands, Canada, Singapore, Australia and Portugal were invited to compete as well. First place went to Queensland University of Technology in Australia, and third place went to Auckland University of Technology. Tucker said UF has particiinternational and two to three domestic competitions each year for the past few years. This is the second time the university has received second place in an international competition during the past three years, said Brian Ray, associate dean and director for the College of Business Administration. [Schools] across the globe see how well we have performed in past competitions and ask us to be part of their competition, Ray said. These are superstar students. They are the best of the best.Business team places in international competition THE GATOR POPS BAKERY SELLS CAKE LOLLIPOPS. NATALIE ASOREYAlligator Contributing Writer Jamie Sanchez and Josie Veloz spent their weekend swimming in cake batter and colored sprinkles. They baked a batch of 55 red-coatwhich they handed out as samples on the UF campus. Sanchez, 19, and Veloz, 18, have created Gator Pops Bakery, a specialty bake shop, out of their apartment kitchen. The bakery specializes in catering cake pops, bite-sized, coated balls of cake on a stick, akin to lollipops. Sanchez, a linguistics sophomore pops for a meet-and-greet event for a community service group. I wanted to bring something different, not the traditional cookies or cupcakes, she said. The positive reaction she received from guests at the event encouraged her to start the business with best friend Veloz, whom she met four years ago in a high school chorus class. Baking the cake pops started as a hobby, Sanchez said, but now that others are enjoying it, were excited to see where the bakery takes us. The two friends, who refer to themselves as baking sisters, look to market their cake pops to sororities and other on-campus organizations hosting events. Gator Pops Bakery, which is set to ie, chocolate fudge, milk chocolate, red velvet, yellow cake and lemon cake, To place a custom catering order, colors, design and, if desired, edible decorations. Each order requires a minimum of 20 cake pops and must be placed at least two days before the date the pops are needed. While prices vary, a basic, minimum order with any an average of $25. Customers can pick up their order or have it delivered. chez and Veloz have created a website, gatorpopsbakery.weebly.com, and a Facebook page. Some people look at the cake pops and wonder how we even make them, Sanchez said. But, we make everything from scratch, Veloz said. It takes a long time and its messy. We make the cake, destroy it, make it again, freeze it, decorate it. Its not like a one-stop shop.Students create bake shop from scratchMeyers will still be involved on campustions Committee chairman and Student Senate president. He plans to graduate in the spring with a degree in food and resource economics. Meyers said he will still be involved on campus in the future and will help Reynolds make the transition into his role as president. Anthony is an experienced and capable leader who has cials and the Board of Trustees. Having him as my successor makes this decision easier. Reynolds, who served as a director with Students Taking Action Against Racism and as an SG Cabinet chairman, said but that he is ready to take the position. At the end of day I had no intention of being Student Body president, Reynolds said. I didnt run for Student Body feelings before, I want to do the very best job that I can. Reynolds said he will take his role as the voice of students seriously and wants to hear directly from them their concerns and desires. Students Party Sen. Carly Wilson and another friend of Meyers, said the announcement came as a shock to her and the rest of her party. We rarely agreed with him in the political sense, but we hope everything works out OK for him, she said. Were all Gators, and we wish him the best.

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 7, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 7Letters to the EditorTen years of war is too muchTen years ago today, President Bush launched Operation Enduring Freedom, the United States-led invasion of Afghanistan. war on terror. The original mission to topple the Taliban and kill or capture al-Qaida leaders, including Osama bin Laden has been replaced by a futile policy of nation-building. Despite the rhetoric of his 2008 campaign, President Obama has done little to end the wars of his predecessor. Waging war is expensive. To date, the government has blown about $460 billion on the war in Afghanistan and about $798 billion in Iraq. $1.2 trillion dollars on one of the most destruccost of the wars is, the human cost is far more sobering. For 10 years, our soldiers have been enmeshed in the tangle of tribal allegiances and state corruption that characterize Afghan politics. In the last four years, U.S. casualties have risen at an alarming rate, but the hardships suffered by the Afghan people are even more disconcerting. The United States has suffered about 1,500 casualties in Afghanistan alone. When Iraq is included, the total climbs to about 40,000 United States troops killed or wounded. Civilian deaths in the war on terror are estimated to number in the hundreds of thousands. The extension of a bloody and pointless war is inexcusable. As the 10th year of must push for an end before 10 years of war becomes 11. I urge you to take a stand against the war on terror today on the Plaza of the Americas with UF Libertarians and Students for a Democratic Society. Ten years of war is 10 years William Tew UF Libertarians president There is a very interesting thought experiment, widely referred to as the Trolley Problem, which poses the people by diverting a trolley away from them toward a man laying in a hammock who would be killed instead. Perhaps the same dilemma is being raised by many American citizens as to whether the death of al-Awlaki was really called for. I am a native from India who came to the U.S. seeking higher and better education, and I may not have a very strong hold its war against terror. But since we, as Indians, live a few blocks away from Afghanistan, I can share my ideas surrounding this issue, perhaps with a different perspective. I am a strong supporter of the fact that terrorism has no religion and no nationalguided in aim and devoid of humanity. Whenever a terrorist is killed, there is a chance that maybe we have saved a thousand lives somewhere else. Every human being deserves to live, but what happens to those who have lost their touch with humanity? Here, the question is not about killing a person; here, the question is about the very idea that is driving some people to the path of destruction. When Osama bin Laden was killed, no one talked about his nationality. The only concern was that justice should prevail. every terrorist who has waged war against a nation, its people and the very basis on which the nation is founded? We should take this in a broader sense instead of narrowing down the valor of American soldiers to just killing a person. As a matter of fact, what America has done has just bolstered its image on the war against terror. Now the world knows that the U.S. is adamant on its stand of wiping out terrorism. You want to make Earth a better place for us and for future generations. By killing a terrorist, America has sent a strong message that the U.S. and its people do not treat terrorists with any bias. Let them be a citizen of any nation; if they are involved in terrorizing innocent people, they have lost touch with humanity. and a citizen of a nation second. America did a great and brave thing by killing a ter rorist, supporting the notion that terrorists, in the end, do not belong to any country.

8, ALLIGATOR FRIDAY, OCTOBER 7, 2011 Alex Catalano / AlligatorVolunteering members of RecSports serve food to a man at St. Francis House on Thursday. Cur rently, St. Francis House is restricted to a 130-meal limit per day. LOCAL MEREDITH RUTLANDAlligator Staff WriterThe St. Francis House is one meeting away from shedding its 130-meal limit. The Gainesville City Commission voted unanimously to approve its second reading of the city soupkitchen meal-limit change. Commissioners voted to change the meal limit to a time limit at a meeting Aug. 18. The meal limit restricted the citys soup kitchens to serving 130 meals a day. The number limit, which excluded Christmas, Thanksgiving and a day of the shelters choice, will be replaced by a time limit of three hours a day for meals. The hours must be continuous, and meals must be served between 8:30 a.m. and 7 p.m. On paper, the rule applies to all city soup kitchens, but in practice, the St. Francis House is the only soup kitchen that has to follow the limit. St. Francis House Executive Director Kent Vann said he plans to serve lunch from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the soup kitchen once the change is made. Theres one last detail to work out: The City Plan Board has to approve the measure on Nov. 1. After that, the St. Francis House can start operating under the new rule. Hopefully, I can start the very next day, Vann said. He said he is tentative about feeling excited until all the details are hammered out. Im feeling good that were even at this point right now, he said. JESSICA OLIVERAlligator Contributing WriterOff-roading is returning to UF. After a four-year hiatus, Gator Motor sports will be building the off-road baja car once again. The last baja car won third place in 2008 in the Baja SAE short for Society of Automotive Engineers in Montreal with a four-person team. However, due to a lack of members and funding, the motorsports team decided to work on only one car, the formula race car, in 2009. Recruiting began at the beginning of the semester for the new baja team, and eight people have expressed interest to the teams executive board members. However, the team will need at least 10 members in order for the workload to be manageable, said Eduardo Rondon, captain of the formula team. Anyone can join the team regardless of his or her major or level of experience. Its an amazing resume builder.

Sure, you go to college and listen to hip-hop and once traveled to Israel on a Birthright trip; but, deep down, you love the simplicities of the South. Dont pretend otherwise we here at the alligatorSports Brand Picks Column tailgated last Saturday, and we saw you in your jort-wearing, Toby Keithloving glory. Even you yankees who only enrolled at Florida to appear interesting to your high school classmates: Youre southern now. Theres no going back; youve already gone tubing down Ichetucknee Springs and tasted real barbecue. And thats OK, because the South is what makes football great. Nobody calls in to radio stations, trolls message boards or poisons a rivals historic trees quite like us rednecks. Thats why we were torn up when a classic redneck Hank Williams Jr., the Elvis of Monday Night Football sullied our favorite game with all that Hitler talk. But lets not get too sad. There are still plenty of famous rednecks who love football and keep their politics in perspective. Never will that be more on display than at the Red River Rivalry, going down this Saturday at the Cotton Bowl. We let a couple of our good ol sports writers debate.

GREG LUCAAlligator Staff Writer This year was supposed to be different. The Gators have a new coach, Will Muschamp, new expectations season has been a mirror image of 2010. Last year, the Gators won their 23.5 points, the closest a 14-point win against Tennessee, before losing to Alabama by 25. This season, the Gators won erage 31.3 points, the closest a 10-point win against Tennessee, before losing to Alabama by 28. In 2010, UF let the beatdown at the hands of Alabama turn into a free-fall, losing its next two games en route to a 9-5 season. How will the 2011 team respond? Can the Gators handle adversity? I dont have any doubt at all, redshirt freshman tackle Chaz Green said of the teams ability to respond to adversity. Ive got the had one bump in the road. Were still our whole goal is to get to Atlanta. Theyre still out there, theyre still possible. So Ive got With South Carolina falling to Auburn last weekend, Florida remains in a three-way tie, also with Georgia, for the lead in the Southeastern Conferences East division.

Theres always a chance. But for the Gators to pull off the improbRun the ball and stop the run. To win in the Southeastern Conference, this is impor tant every week. Its even more important this Saturday, as Florida is coming off its worst performances of the season in both regards against Alabama. LSU may be ranked seventh in the SEC in rushing, but the Tigers have racked up their 172.6-yard average against quality opponents. They also tout the nations third-ranked rush defense, holding teams like Oregon and Mississippi State in check. Protect the quarterback. As we creep closer to game day, it appears freshman Jeff Driskel is the most likely candidate to start. Driskel will need protection from an offensive line that looked inept at times against Alabama, especially if hes going to atone for the turnover woes that have plagued him in limited playing time this season. Allowing the Tigers to take the ball away from the Gators offense Saturday will mean trouble in the bayou.

14, ALLIGATOR FRIDAY, OCTOBER 7, 2011 ALEX PECKHAM Alligator Writer As the Florida mens and womens swimming teams prepare for the 2011-12 season, there will certainly be no shortage of motivation. Aside from their usual goals within Southeastern Conference and NCAA competition, the 2012 Summer Olympic Games in London are fast approaching, and plenty of Florida swimmers hope to give themselves the opportunity to perform for their respective nations on the world stage. The Olympics are the biggest event in swimming, the time once every four years when the eyes of the world will be focused on the sport. Coaches are not excluded from excitement, as Florida coach Gregg Troy will serve as head coach for the U.S. mens squad in London. But, for now, his focus is solely on his UF swimmers. The foreign guys have a pretty good chance of making their Olympic team and almost all of our team said. C oaches are hoping the motivation of the upcoming Olympic season translates into results for the mens and womens teams, who hope to spring when they host the All-Florida Invitational today through Sunday. Preliminary races will begin at 10 at 7 p.m. NCAA Championships in March, but some key departures leave many expecting less out of this years team. While Troy admitted the losses of standout seniors and NCAA Champions Brett Fraser and Conor Dwyer doesnt help, he was very optimistic about his 12-man incoming freshman class. The good side of (our youth) is that the future of this program is very speed of the events changes dramatically. One of the big challenges is to a different world than what theyre Floridas women were disappointNCAA Championships, but most of the swimmers from last years team are back and ready to improve on that result. Sophomore Elizabeth Beisel, who at the national championship, as well as seniors Sarah Bateman, Teresa Crippen and Shara Stafford will all be back in the pool for the Gators this fall. Troy said. Its great to have Crippen and Shara back, but they cant swim all the events, so were going to have to get some improvements from our sophomore class, and rely on some Gators motivated by potential Olympic berthsSOCCER JOSH JURNOVOY Alligator Writer Pink hair and pink shirts will stick out amongst the usual orange and blue tonight at Pressly Stadium. Florida will host Auburn in the fourth ing breast cancer awareness, and the Gators warm-ups. However, for many team members, the shirt. Almost every person on our team in some way, whether it is a friend of the family or family directly, somebody they know Burleigh said. This is just an opportunity for us to promote that awareness and to feel blessed that Breast cancer is an issue that hits home for Burleigh, whose mother, Nancy, is a survivor. Burleigh said she values having the opportunity to promote awareness of any cancer, as her mother has suffered from the disease in three other forms, including stomach cancer. While Burleigh has always been at her mothers side throughout all of her health issues, Nancy has never allowed it to affect the coach on the job. My mom makes that easy because she said. She just enjoys any support that we give her. She doesnt like to make a big deal out Whether it is through visiting the hospital or talking to her on the phone, Burleigh said she tries to keep in touch with her mother every day. She says that her father, Ron, has played a huge role in the management of Nancys health, and the results have shown. You would never see any limitations how she has been so positive through all of The importance of raising cancer awareness is not something that is lost on Beckys players, either. Its obviously something that means said. And it means a lot to us as a team for her to be our coach to represent that and Last summer, Williamson helped honor her moms best friend, who had just been diagnosed with breast cancer, when Williamson took part in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure in Dallas. The race is the worlds largest fundraising event for breast cancer, with more than 100 races worldwide annually. It was really inspiring just to see all those women out there and its just crazy to Williamson said. going to great lengths to support the cause tonight, even dying her hair pink.

guard Jon Halapio said. Its motivation for this week to get better and go out to Louisiana and take care of business. The Gators know theyre underdogs. Betting lines have No. 1 LSU (5-0, 2-0 SEC) as a 14-point favorite in its matchup with No. 17 Florida (4-1, 2-1 SEC) Saturday at 3:30 p.m. in Baton Rouge, La. In one game, UF fell from national contender to mere SEC hopeful. Theres kind of doubt, junior wide receiver Frankie Hammond said. That loss kind of hit us. But we still have to go out and prove ourselves, so its just us against the world. Nobody believes we can do it but us, and were going to go out there and prove that. Muschamp said that a number of players came in on Sunday, the teams Sophomore cornerback Jaylen Watkins said the loss made a noticeable difference in the locker room and brought the Gators closer together. And offensive coordinator Charlie Weis said the team has kept a level head thanks to a veteran coaching staff. Our staff have all been through experiences like this before, and weve got a good idea how to handle it, Weis said. It isnt like panic sets in, pandemonium sets in. Its a very matter of fact evaluation of what we do. If Weis is right, Florida could still end the season as SEC Champion. But, if hes wrong, 2011 could easily be a case of dj vu. Contact Greg Luca at gluca@alligator. org. Oklahoma (+10) will win this slobberknocker because The Sooners know how to ground and pound, and theyve got Monday Night Raw announcer Jim Ross on the sidelines to keep them sharp. On offense, Oklahoma will take a page out of J.R.s barbecue cookbook and slow-roast the defense. Expect the Sooners offensive line to open holes for Dom Whaley. And, once Texas is lulled to sleep, OU quarterback Landry Jones will hook up with Ryan Broyles for a couple scores. From there, Texas doesnt stand a chance because Oklaand everything grows. The Longhorns defense, meanwhile, will spend more time on the canvas than Rembrandt. TYLER JETTTexas (-10) will perform better than Matthew McConCase is the real McCoy, and hes going to follow in his older brothers footsteps. The Longhorns dropped last years shootout to the Sooners, meaning the last time they won was in 2009, when Colt McCoy was slinging the ball Landry Jones. History is going to repeat itself much like the plot of every McConaughey rom-com and the younger McCoy is going to lead the Horns to a triumph in Texas, the home state of the Texas Rattlesnake.
