See story, page 13. CLARE LENNON In the third impeachment trial in UF Student Government history, the Senate voted Tuesday night not to impeach Supervisor of Elections Toni Megna. Five Students Party senators drafted a resolution to impeach Megna on 13 elections codes they said she did not follow. Senators voted that Megna did not carry out eight of the 13 elections rules in question, but each infraction failed to receive enough impeachment votes from senators. Spring senators voted on the accuracy of each presented infraction. If two-thirds of the senators voted that an infraction was true, they then voted on whether that warranted impeachment. Impeachment also needed a two-thirds vote to pass. Senator Gillian Leytham, the Students Party leader, was the only senator who voted that each of the eight approved infractions individually merited Megnas impeachment. Student Senate President Andy Mason did not vote. After the fall elections, Students Party members, including Leytham, appealed the results to the Election Commission and then the UF Supreme Court. They said computer error and Megnas incorrect elections procedures required an elections redo. Megna did not attend the impeachment hearing, but Stu86 /65 Alex Catalano / Alligator Senate President Andy Mason tallies votes during Tuesdays impeachment hearing for Supervisor of Elections Toni Megna.

UF Hillel program director Jeff Kaplan said the goal is to expose students to a different culture they may not know much about throughout the entire month of November. Compared with past years, this years events are more concentrated on educational activities. We have events that are grounded on whats happening in Israel, he said. Israel Week served as a complement in the Fall semester to Jewish Awareness Month in March, said Josh Kahn, 27, an Israel Fellow at UF Hillel. During the entire month, Hillel will be collecting 1,491 Post-it Notes from students who write about something they have done years. The Post-it Notes will form a on campus to celebrate the release of Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit, who was captured by Hamas militants 18, Kahn said. Students are also invited to celebrate Shalits release at the Grog House Bar & Grill on Thursday. Mitzvah Day for Israel will be held Sunday, where participants can sign up to volunteer at hospitals in Israel. On Nov. 28, the Hillel will host a screening of the award-winning Afterward, audience members der traditional Bedouin tents. With more events, the Hillel can reach out to students who want to further their relationship with Israel on a different level, Kahn said. Kahn, who moved to Israel in 2003, returned in 2010 to serve with UF Hillel. He returns to Israel in May. Having an Israel Week really limits what you can do, he said. Now students have the option to come to different programs. Kahn said Israel Month is about appreciating the beauty of the country. Jewish students, Kahn said.

Russell George, the treasury inspector general for tax administration. George said the IRS estimated in 2010 that about 250,000 businesses forms. Ed Ruzakowski, owner of Tan USA in Butler Plaza, said he thinks the tax is incredibly unfair, and he is not surprised by these results. The tanning industry is relatively small, he said, and as the economy worsened, increasing numbers of salons closed throughout the country. Tan USAs basic monthly plan, originally $25, is now $27.50, an increase that didnt sit well with customers. The salon has seen about a 20 percent decrease in customers since the taxs implementation, Ruzakowski said. With winter around the corner, he said he expects to see a slight increase in customers for November and December but the biggest months are January through March. Businesses that offer tanning as an auxiliary service, like gyms or apartment complexes, are not reLauren Knight, a 19-year-old psychology freshman, said she was shocked by the number of Gainesville apartment complexes that offer free tanning as an amenity. Knight said she doesnt go to indoor tanning beds because shes concerned about the risks of skin tax with taxes on cigarettes. I agree with the tax the vices mentality, she said. If she were to visit a tanning salon, a price increase of a couple dollars wouldnt deter her, she said, unless she were really strapped for cash. But Knight said she might choose to go to an apartment complexs altogether.Tan tax fails to bring in expected revenue ERIN JESTERAlligator WriterU.S. Rep. Cliff Stearns wants regardless of ability. But according to the U.S. Department of Labor, employers can legally pay disabled workers less than the minimum wage. Last month, Stearns, R-Fla., and U.S. Rep. Tim Bishop, DN.Y., presented a bill that would eliminate the part of the Fair Labor Standards Act that allows employers to pay disabled workers less than minimum wage. The Fair Wages for Workers with Disabilities Act of 2011 disabled workers at least the federal minimum wage, which is $7.25 per hour. Minimum wage for disabled workers would be instituted in the private sector within one year of the bills passage. Public or governmental pay minimum wage within two pay within three years. As we wind down two wars, thousands of our brave men and women are returning home with disabilities, Stearns wrote in an email. We owe them, and all of the disabled, the opportunity to fully participate in our society and in the workplace. The Americans with Disabilities Act prohibits hiring discrimination toward people with physical or cognitive disabilities. However, The Fair Labor Standards Act states that individuals whose earning or productive capacities for the work to be performed are impaired by physical or mental disabilities, including those related to age the minimum wage, according to the Department of Labors website. We dont do that, said Dane Dodd, corporate national trainer for Contemporary Ser vices Corp., a security and crowd management company. UF uses Contemporary Ser vices workers for Gator Growl, football games and other sporting events. Dodd said people with mobility and cognitive disabilities make up a larger part of the companys workers than other companies, probably more than the average. To work for Contemporary Services, hires must be 18 years or older, have a high school diplete a training program that standing English. Employees are paid based on said, but no employee is ever paid below the state minimum wage. We dont really view disabilities as an issue, he said. Although the company particular groups, in the past the company has worked with which helps wounded service members transition back into civilian life. Dodd said most of the disabled workers hired by the company come looking for work on the company through workplacement programs or community representatives. Trish Ward, co-owner and front end manager of Wards Supermarket, said shes had two cognitively disabled men working at her store for about They came separately looking for work and were hired as grocery baggers. Ive never paid them any differently than anyone else, Ward said.

dent Senate President Andy Mason read her statement. She said the impeachment was an unreasonable request and that some of the allegations against her were factually incorrect. Megna did not return requests for comment after the hearing. Before the votes, some of the resolutions authors addressed the Senate. Leytham said the impeachment body was voting on the accuracy of the facts of the rules infractions. Several senators said Megna is a student with other responsibilities. and foremost, said Sen. Katie Waldman, who was recently chosen as the co-chair of a committee that will revise the elections codes. Waldman also said the Senate failed to update elections system. Throughout the voting, Leytham said senators who voted that an infraction did occur but did not count nonfeasance as a cause for impeachment contradicted themselves. on the impeachment agenda, nonfeasance is the non-perfor mance of some act which ought to be performed. Leytham said she thought the process was ridiculous. Its like saying, Yes, you lied under oath, but no, that doesnt mean you committed perjury. veloping a technology product, Muir said.

The same 1 percent keep in mind that the vast majority of Americans, save a small percentage, live very comfortably by global standards. Even ily homeless. The vast majority of poor households had cars and cable or satellite TV.

WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 16, 2011 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Poll Question Of the current projections, which bowl would you prefer for the Gators? Vote online at alligatorSports.org.Florida quarterback John Brantley has had a trying two seasons as the starter in Gainesville. Instead of worrying about his legacy, Brantley is focused on Furman. See story, page 15. UF LOST 81-74 TUESDAY. JOHN BOOTHEAlligator Staff WriterCoach Billy Donovan went into Columbus, Ohio, knowing his guard-laden Gators would be exposed somewhere on the court. He said against good teams like Ohio State, it is only expected. Much like last years 18-point loss to the No. 3 Buckeyes (2-0) that featured 18 giveaways, it was a bevy of turnovers that deprived the No. 7 Gators (1-1) of a marquee win in the second game of the season. Florida committed 16 turnovers this time around and trailed by as many as 16 points Tuesday during an 81-74 loss to the Buckeyes. Playing on the road versus a good offensive team, you cant do that, Donovan said. The turnovers on the road certainly hurt you. Its going to be good I think it is something we can learn from. Though the Gators shot 50 percent from three for the game, Donovan said the number of attempts would haunt the team as the turnovers mounted. We got off to a real good start, Donovan said. We probably took too many threes and we tried to (shoot) way too early in the possession. Using a spread-out set featuring four players on the pestretched the young backcourt of Mistakes doom Gators against BuckeyesSEE HOOPS, PAGE 14 GREG LUCAAlligator Staff WriterFloridas jack of all trades is going to become a master of one this offseason. Sophomore Trey Burton has taken snaps at halfback, fullback, quarterback, tight end and wide receiver this year but will settle into one position after the season, offensive coordinator Charlie Weis said. Well probably play him at fullback and play him at halfback, Weis said. So far this season, Burton has 30 carries for 117 yards and three touchdowns, 17 catches for 145 yards and a touchdown, and he is 3-of-5 passing for 17 yards. There isnt one guy that wants to be a jack of all trades, master of none, Weis said. They have an opportunity to help the team out however we see best. Evans improving: Junior safety Josh Evans said a preseason hamstring injury was the reason for his sluggish beginning of the year. Evans was projected as one of UFs top safeties coming into 2011, but he started just two tackles during that span. I kind of started off the season slow, Evans said. I was dealing with a hamstring toward the end of camp. Tried to keep it kind of quiet. It was bothering me pretty much. Now its feeling pretty good and Ive been ready to go. Evans has started each of Floridas last four games and recorded 24 tackles, including a career-high 11 Saturday against South Carolina. season. Reed settling in: After bouncing between Position switch likely for BurtonSEE NO TEBOOK, PAGE 14THE TOM GREEN SHOWHangovers arent fun. At all. Sure, what precedes the hangover itself is a blast. But the actual hangover is miserable. Everyone knows the feeling especially college students. And everyone has their own cure for it. Some work, some dont. But people still swear by them regardless of their effectiveness. Since the beginning of October, this Gators football season has been one big hangover. Injuries, a 1-5 record, a struggling offense, a gassed defense and the same story week in and week out. It has been tough to watch at times. But sure enough, there is a cure for this football hangover, and it took the court in Columbus, Ohio, on Tuesday night. The mediocrity of Will Mus1987 (well before the majority of the students on campus were even born), will quickly be relieved by what Billy Donovan is putting together just across Gale Lemerand Drive. Donovan and his No. 7 Gators, despite the 81-74 loss to No. 3 Ohio State on Tuesday, are the polar opposite of Muschamp and his unranked group. Muschamp is a down-South country boy. He never plans on living west of Texas or north of Tennessee. He is calculated in what he says and what kind of information gets to the public about his program. He is controlling about every aspect of the football team.Billy Ball the perfect cure for underwhelming football seasonSEE TOM, PAGE 14 Tom Greentwitter: @tomas_verde AP PhotoUF Fo otball Poll ResultsCan Florida reverse last years results a 93-75 loss to Ohio State on Tuesday when the No. 8 Gators and No. 3 Buckeyes meet again?72% YES 28% NO79 total votes

Meanwhile, Donovan is a Northerner. His New York accent is just as prominent as Muschamps Southern one. He is also calculated, in his own right. But hes also a lot more open about his team. Hes a salesman, after all. And he will surely sell this football town on his basketball team this year. Floridas football players, while strugshow a semblance of personality this year. The basketball team? Well, its bubbling with character, none bigger than sophomore Patric Young, who not only held his own against Ohio States big man, Jared with 14 points and 12 rebounds his second career double-double and second in as many games. But the differences dont end with just the makeup of the teams; it extends to their styles of play, too. This Florida football team is a run-based offense. The Gators ideal plan is to milk the clock and pound the rock with methodical drives. That hasnt exactly been the case this season, with the offense limping to a No. 98 national ranking overall (and 66th in rushing). The hardwood Gators, on the other hand, are going to be far more exciting to watch, win or lose. Theyll be pushing the ball up the court, pressing the opposing team and bringing back Billy Ball. Essentially, it will be everything this football season hasnt been. While the gridiron Gators season will be over after two more regular-season matchups and likely a pre-New Years Day bowl game, Donovans boys, regardless of what Tuesdays result against the Buckeyes may indicate, have a chance to advance further than last years Elite Eight group did. So sit back and take in this basketball season. It will surely wash the bad taste football season has left in your mouth, and undoubtedly cure that hangover.

Now comfortable, Reed leads Gatorsquarterback and tight end during his freshman nally found a home as a pass catcher. against South Carolina, he passed senior running back Chris Rainey as Floridas leader in receptions. It feels good to get the ball in my hands and try and make some plays, Reed said. I got more comfortable playing tight end in the game and more comfortable in my role. Reed has 24 catches for 251 yards and a touchdown this season despite missing two September games with a lower-body injury. Jordans arrow has been pointed up for over a month now, Weis said. Jordan has got a very high ceiling that hasnt even come close to being reached yet. Reeds switch from pass thrower to pass catcher was not an easy one, as he had to learn blocking and route-running. He said the hardest adjustment in making the permanent move has been running after the catch. Its different than QB, because you see everything in front of you, and when you get the ball receiving you got your back turned to the defense, Reed said. Bostic performing well: Junior linebacker Jon Bostic leads UF with 77 tackles and is having a season coach Will Muschamp called outstanding. Bostic has either led the team or tied for the team lead in tackles in six of the Gators last eight games. His totals in tackles, tackles for loss (six) and sacks (three) this season eclipse his combined UF. He credited his improvement to understanding opponent tendencies based on down and distance and to the new scheme brought in by a fresh coaching staff, which has allowed the Gators to disguise what theyre doing defensively. Contact Greg Luca at gluca@alligator.org. NOTEBOOK, from page 13Young posts double-double, limits SullingerOhio State into open looks on 11-of-22 shooting from beyond the arc. Freshman guard Brad Beal had a teamand career-high 17 points while going 6 for 16 ton added 15, including three made 3-pointers. But the pair also combined for eight giveaways. As the lone Gator in the paint for much of the game, starting sophomore center Patric Young recorded his second straight doubledouble with 14 points and a game-high 12 rebounds. Patric keeps playing, motors running and I was really proud of his attitude, Donovan said. Our guys looked at that and said, Geez, hes only got one shot, we need to get the ball to him a little bit more. Young also made an impact defensively against last years National Freshman of the Year, Jared Sullinger, who scored 16 points Eight of Sullingers points came from the freethrow line, where the Buckeyes ended the game with a large advantage. The difference really in the game was they took 34 free throws to our 21, and we didnt shoot it particularly well from the freethrow line, Donovan said. half were made by junior forward Erik Mur After going a disappointing 2 of 9 from the behind the arc and was a perfect 4 for 4. Even with Murphys hot shooting, the Gators hit a 6:30 stretch between halves when nine turnovers in 20 minutes, the scoring drought allowed the Buckeyes to take control of the game. We then started kicking it around and turning it over; then we got into a little bit of a funk where we really werent making shots, Donovan said. We needed to have more defensively.
