BRIANNA KOLOTA Alligator Contributing Writer Despite the convenience of online faculty evaluations, student response to these surveys has taken a dip since going digital. Faculty evaluations, which UF offers solely online this semester, are open, but data from Summer 2011 indicates that student feedback decreased about 20 percent with the digital switch. However, students who did complete evaluations provided enhanced comments, and the online system saved the university time and money. The overall student response rate semester students submitted all faculty evaluations online, was about 33 percent. When students completed all evaluations on paper in Summer 2010, the overall response rate was about 53 percent, said Donna Johnson, UF evaluations coordinator. Fewer students completing teacher evaluations online ERIN JESTER Alligator Writer President Bernie Machen will stick with The Gator Nation a year longer than he planned, but he wont get paid more for it. The UF Board of Trustees voted last week to extend Machens contract by one year, from Dec. 31, 2012, to Dec. 31, 2013. Chairman Carlos Alfonso said the board requested the extension so Machen could see through some of his own initiatives, particularly Florida Tomorrow, a capital-raising campaign for UF. He will not receive a raise for the extra year. Machens salary is $432,808, according to tutional Planning and Research. I dont think that Bernie felt that in a time of austerity that he should be getting a raise, and neither did the board, Alfonso said. This idea is in sharp contrast to the presidents of many private universities, who have been taking raises despite the lingering recession. The Chronicle of Higher Education, which recently published the salaries of top-earning private university presidents, reported that the highest-paid president in 2009 was Constantine N. Papadakis of Drexel University.

University was the only president in the top 10 earners who took a pay cut from 2008 to 2009. His salary decreased by 21 percent. The Chronicles survey of presidential pay at 482 private colleges, using federal tax returns, found the median compensation was $385,909, a 2.2-per cent increase from 2008 to 2009. The highest-paid public univer sity president is E. Gordon Lee of $1,323,911 for the 2009-2010 academic year. This is a steep step up from the next four highest earners from the University of Texas system, Univer sity of Texas at Austin, the Univer sity of Michigan system and Univer sity of Utah, whose salaries are in the $700,000 range.

TUESDAY, DECEMBER 6, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 5 MARY ANNE EADESAlligator Contributing Writer The Southern Scholarship Foundation, which has eight houses in Gainesville to lodge scholarship recipients, is opening a ninth house. The new house, which provides 21 housing scholarships and has several female spots available for the spring semester, is located on Southwest Ninth Street, near other SSF houses. Jamie Chute is looking for ward to the annual Christmas morning re-enactment Thursday at Badcock Scholarship House, one of the nine houses. I love Christmas with Badcock, said Chute, 19, an English sophomore. We do Secret Santa, put gifts under our tree, and were gonna open them all together. Its a tradition. At the houses, each resident pays, on average, a $950 food and services bill. This provides food, utilities, cable, Internet and activities for one semester. Each scholarship is valued at more than $7,000 each year. In a SSF house, each resident has a roommate and shares a bathroom with four to six housemates. Chores are shared. For a few hours each week of cooking or cleaning, you get a warm, cozy place to live, said Teresa Turner, director of student affairs.

Within minutes, everything on his plate was gone: the chicken, the creamed spinach and even the Brussels sprouts. Ive heard through wordof-mouth that the food was awful good, he said. Of course, I dont hope to be at the hospital, but if I am, Ill eat here. Morrison Healthcare Food Services took over food services at Shands last year. On Dec. 14, the hospital will unveil a remodeled cafeteria area, including a sushi bar and brick-oven pizza area. The project will cost $2.5 million, including a second phase opening in mid-January, said retail manager Richard Bouvier. John Tibbetts, director of food and nutrition services at Shands, said the hospital has been committed to creating a healthier limiting fat and sodium. The goal of the menu is to provide great-tasting, attractively presented, healthy food in an environmentally conscious manner, he said. Morrison works with dietitians, chefs and test kitchens to create a base menu of traditional favorites, mixing in diverse choices like ropa vieja and tilapia with roasted cherry tomatoes. Each year, the traditional comfort foods like meatloaf and fried chicken act as a base and are surrounded by new and seasonal items, Tibbetts said. Consideration of regional issues is critical in menu customization, Tibbetts said. After all, Morrison is owned by Compass Group, a $9.8-billion company that spans 44 states and about 98 countries. With Shands location in a college town, Tibbetts said environmental issues are a big concern. Recently, Morrison has been concentrating on sustainability and buying locally when possible. Morrison menus have focused on more sustainable seafood, cage-free eggs, hormonefree dairy and biodegradable packaging, Tibbetts said.

Todays question: Are you actually doing evaluations for your professors?From the EditorThank you to the Alligator staffEvery semester, about 50 students come together to put out a daily newspaper for UF students. They spend their days talking with other students and professors, playing phone tag with each other and sacribuilding using even older computers so you have something to grab out of the orange bins on campus every day. Its not always a glamorous job, and it doesnt always earn us new friends, but it is a special experience for everyone who has ever had the opportunity to enter the newsroom. It is hard for me to remember what it is like to eat dinner at a normal time. The concept of doing homework before the day it is due will probably always be foreign to me. Luckily, I will be graduating and wont have to spend my last semester at UF Alligator-less. Im not sure what I would do with all the free time, and Id have a hard time staying away from the newsroom, where Ive spent more than 40 hours a week with great people for the last two years. Whenever I look back on my time at UF, I will think about the Alligator and the hours I spent sitting in creaky rolling chairs, helping reporting students get their stories just right or looking up the days weather to put on page two. Ill think about the Secret Santa gift exchanges the staff does every year and how we always take turns calling in orders for and that is what helped prepare me for my career. ond cousins for supporting me as I worked my way to the position of editor-in-chief. The important people in my life already know how much I appreciate them for listening to my crazed rants about having to cover Student Government meetings and for letting me leave holiday dinners early so I could come back to budget the newspaper. But I do want to leave you thinking about the time, energy and GPA points the hardworking students who produce this newspaper put into it. For you, it might just be an opportunity to make a stupid comment on the website or serve as a distraction from your early-morning psychology class. But for those 50 or so staffers, We all came together with the common goals of serving the public, building portfolios and learning how to be good jour nalists, but we go home every night excited to come back and work together the next day. We work here to serve you, but at the end of the day we go home doing something we love. ELIZABETH BEHRMAN EDITOR-IN-CHIEF Spend time with friends, family this seasonIf youve been following my columns throughout the semester, you probably know how much of a sap I am. I soldiers and/or animals. Before you ask, yes, Ive seen that YouTube video of the dog greeting his returning-soldier owner, and yes, I cried at that, too. Whats nice about this season, in addition to Starbucks delicious, syrupy drinks, is what the holidays do for all of us. There are plenty of jokes about strained family get-togethers and about being alone during this season, but I choose to ignore them. The holidays are a chance for us to appreciate and recognize those who make our lives a little happier. I was speaking with a friend last week about relationships and friendships. She reminded me that friends are people who make your life better. Real friends wont intentionally make your life worse and if they do, its time to let them go. We then decided we are really good at giving advice, so we started a blog about it. It is the cool thing to do these days. What some people dont like about holidays in general is that they remind us about the things we should be doing all of the time. Isnt it a little sad that we need to have a Mothers Day and a Fathers Day to make us tell our parents that we appreciate all they do for us? Do we really need a Valentines Holidays have become a time for us to reconnect with friends. We get really busy in our lives. You are reading this ing this on the day that I have an eight-page-minimum paper due, so I know what busy feels like. So, maybe the holidays are based on the education system in this country: The two big breaks for Thanksgiving and the winter holidays give us all a breather. We become so stressed during the school year or work year for you professional types that we forget to appreciate our friends and family. Its really easy to take relationships for granted because there are simply a million other things to do and think about. Making friends isnt always easy, and I think it only gets harder as we get older. This year especially, Ive started working on the quality of my relationships rather than the quantity. Its more important to me to have long-lasting bonds with people than to have a high number Im practically a functioning adult now. Ill wait for you to stop laughing because I can hardly believe it either. But really, think of your favorite sitcom characters and their best friends. Theyre pretty much all people that they met either during college or after they graduated. Now think about your best friends. Are those the same people you want to hang out with in a decade? Thats how Ive been approaching this semester. Now that this semester is coming to a close and my brain about where Ill move after college, Ive been cultivating the important friendships in my life. I suggest you do the same. Because while enjoying a party with a large group of people is one thing, its not imperative to the bigger picture of your life. and real adulthood, so use it wisely. Learn a lot about scholarly knowledge and about yourself. Use this holiday break to your advantage and grow a little closer to your friends. Sami Main is a journalism junior at UF.

8, ALLIGATOR TUESDAY, DECEMBER 6, 2011 MORGAN WATKINSAlligator Staff WriterA former Gainesville man who fled Florida in 2009 after he was identified as a top cocaine trafficker was arrested in Rhode Island early Monday morning. U.S. Marshals arrested Mario Ginorio, 30, in Coventry, R.I., according to a U.S. Marshals news release. Marshals said he had a .357 Magnum handgun when he was arrested at his home. Ginorio was wanted by the Levy County Sheriffs Office on a February arrest warrant for the trafficking and sale of cocaine. The warrant was the result of a 2008 investigation by federal drug agents and the Levy County Sheriffs Office that led to the arrest and prosecution of more than 25 people on cocainerelated charges, according to the news release. The investigation revealed that Ginorio had supplied cocaine to people in Alachua, Levy and Dixie counties. Investigators learned that Ginorio had fled Florida and headed to Tennessee before moving to Rhode Island earlier this year, according to the release. Deputy U.S. Marshal Bryon Carroll said Ginorio was taken to the Cranston, Rhode Island Adult Correctional Institution but will be extradited to Levy County to face his charges.Feds arrest Gainesville fugitive after two years SAMANTHA SHAVELLAlligator Contributing Writer Sustainability released a report highlighting the efforts it has made in creating a more sustainable UF.

GUARD IS AVERAGING MORE REBOUNDS, ASSISTS AND STEALS THAN LAST SEASON. JOE MORGANAlligator WriterSenior guard Deana Allen reaps what she sows, and Florida is enjoying the harvest. Allen is making the most of her time on the court, providing the Gators a much-needed boost off the bench. Through seven games, Allen has achieved increases in average rebounds, assists and steals compared with last season despite playing fewer minutes per game this year. I just try to maximize my minutes while Im in, Allen said. for me at the time and make that my strength. Allen averages 18.7 minutes per game, racking up 8.1 points and 2.6 steals per outing. She is also tied for second on the team with 2.1 assists per game and ranks second on UF in rebounding with 5.9 per contest. Deana is just such an X-factor for us because shes so hard to guard, UF coach Amanda Butler said. If you can successfully guard her, shes probably going to get know what happened. Allens role this season is much different than it was one year ago. Transferring to UF from Pensacola Junior College, Allen started 18 of 35 games last season for Butlers mostly inexperienced squad, playing 19.2 minutes per contest. Now Allens role is more dethe bench. It may not be my best night, but I still try to contribute (with) some form of energy and just motivation to the girls, Allen said. Even if Im not having a good game. In the season-opening 69-66 loss to Michigan, Florida missed the enthusiasm of Allen, who sat out due to a concussion suffered in preseason practice. The game featured 29 lead changes and 13 ties, but the Gators were unable to overcome disappointing performances on both sides of the ball. In no way is [Allens absence] an excuse for tonights lack of execution, Butler said after the loss to the Wolverines. However, since that game, Florida has executed much better. UF went on a six-game winning streak that included an upset of then-No. 21 Florida State before losing to No. 11 Rutgers 63-49 on Friday. I cant even tell her how much it means to have someone of her caliber to come off the bench and really be that spark plug, redshirt senior guard Jordan Jones said. Shes embraced it, and shes doing a lot for this team right now. As the Gators prepare for the season this week against San be relying on Allen for more than Mainly, Butler appreciates how Allen senses the urgency of the moment when shes out on Shes playing as hard as she possibly can, Jones said. I think shes playing harder than anyone in the country right now, really. TUESDAY, DECEMBER 6, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 15Aundre Larrow / Alligator StaffSenior guard Deana Allen is averaging 8.1 points, 2.1 assists, 5.9 rebounds and 2.6 steals per game off the bench for Florida. Brett Le Blanc / Alligator StaffFlorida setter/right-side hitter Kelly Murphy had 25 Allen providing spark off bench for Florida BRYAN HOLTAlligator WriterFlorida entered the NCAA tournafense, coming in as the only team with a hitting percentage above .300. After two victories in Cedar Falls, Iowa, last weekend, the Gators are headed to their seventh straight Sweet 16, and it appears not much has changed on and able to put the ball where we needed to in order to score, senior outside hitter Kristy Jaeckel said after Saturdays 3-1 victory against No. 6 seed Northern Iowa. In a season full of complete offensive performances, Florida put on two of its best displays inside the McLeod Center. After stumbling out of the gates Frireeled off an impressive three-set run during which the Gators out-hit the Tigers .246 to .008. During the stretch, Florida committed 10 fewer attack er match slightly above its season attack errors-per-set average of 4.03. The miscues were made up for by gaudy backcourt defensive numbers. The Gators average 13.4 digs-per-set on the year but averaged 20.5 on Friday night in a match that saw Jaeckel, senior setter and right-side hitter Kelly Murphy, freshman defensive specialist Holly Pole and redshirt with double-digit digs, including 20 and 23 for Pole and Unroe, respectively. Missouri is used to playing in a league with some really good liberos, UF coach Mary Wise said. So theyre used to keeping the ball in play. The ball doesnt land easily. But Saturday night against Nothern Iowa, another 3-1 victory, it was all about what has been Floridas strong point all set dominated by UNI, unseeded UF fought back with a precise performance. The Gators out-hit the Panthers .358 and committed 19 fewer attack errors during that same span. The effort was spearheaded by the usual cast of Jaeckel and Murphy, who combined for 28 kills, just one attack er ror and a .386 hitting clip. Murphy also added 20 assists, while Jaeckel posted another strong sideout mark for the Gators with four service aces. Credit to our low error; when we didnt have an opportunity to score, we tried to put pressure on them instead of taking a swing that could have been high error, Jaeckel said. We were keeping ourselves in the rally. On the season, opponents averaged just a .149 attack percentage against lar season 32-1 and easily handled Niagara in the opening round. The theme of [Saturdays] match was: Get UNI uncomfortable, Wise said. We didnt do a great job of that the that we were able to put some pressure on them and get them uncomfortable.UF offense continuing to shine in NCAAs Gainesville was still available if he ever changed his mind. Now on his radar are Tennessee, South Carolina, Miami and Florida State. Some things might happen, he said, indicating UF may still be in consideration. visit on Friday to Tennessee, and will be in Tallahassee on Dec. State. He also said he is arrangSouth Carolina in the near future. Davis decommitment leaves the Gators with a single running back scheduled to sign on National Signing Day four-star prospect Matt Jones of Seffner Armwood High and 16 total commitments. However, at the top of Floridas wish list has been running back Keith Marshall of Raleigh (N.C.) Millbrook High, the nations No. 1 back, according to Rivals.com. With his commitment set for this afternoon, Marshall will pick between UF and Georgia, among others, and possibly negate Floridas fears of poor depth at running back. Oral commitments are nonbinding until a national letter of intent is signed on or after National Signing Day on Feb. 1, 2012.Top back to announce choice today RECR UIT, from page 13 UF V olle yball Gators rallied to reach Sweet 16 Deana Allen

He has also shown he is a valuable weapon at the front of Floridas press, with seven of his nine steals coming in games he has started. I feel more comfortable because Im playing more than last year, obviously, Yeguete said. When you start getting used to the game and getting used to the system and the players, you feel more comfortable. While Murphys return would mean a decrease in court time for Yeguete, he feels he can still contribute. Murphy, known more for his 3-point shooting and passing, had four starts. Murphy was expected to be back in practice Monday, according to Yeguete. I hope [Murphy] comes back, Yeguete said. Well see if he comes have to go back to the bench. Ill [have to] stay consistent and just bring the same energy that I brought Contact John Boothe at jboothe@ alligator.org. product scored 29.7 points and had 9.7 boards a game last season. He is joined by fellow shooting guard Dillion Graham, a three-star recruit from Orlando First Academy. Frazier is a phenomenal 3-point shooter and a guy that weve kept an eye on for a long, long time, Donovan said. Dillion Graham, another really talented perimeter player whos got obviously range to shoot it and put it on Donovan said the Gators have addressed most of their needs, but he is still recruiting and could add more players to the class. Florida could use more depth in its frontcourt. Despite his pedigree of sending big men such as Joakim Noah, Al Horford and David Lee to the NBA, Donovan hasnt signed a top100 big man since landing sophomore center Patric Young in 2009. Thats part of it; thats a selling point, Donovan said of landing a big man. Thats something thats a positive but, at the end of theyre seeing things and its a lot more than just, Well, theres NBA guys at Florida. Unfortunately in this, you get told, no a lot more than you do, yes. No big Beal: Freshman Brad Beals shooting woes from three continued against Syracuse last Friday, as the 6-foot-3 guard went 0 for 5 on 3-pointers. Through seven games, Beal has been held to Donovan compared Beals shooting early this season to the same struggles Kenny Boynton, Chandler Parsons and Lee Humphrey UFs all-time leader in made threes experiWhen the speed of the game is totally different than it was in high school, theres always a learning curve that you got to go through, Donovan said. So Im not really worried about his shooting. Murphy set to play: After sitting out the last three games, junior forward Erik Murphy is poised to rejoin the starting lineup when No. 12 Florida hosts Arizona on Wednesday. The 6-foot-10 Murphy has been injured since Nov. 24 with a bone bruise in his right knee that he suffered during practice. Hes going to play, Donovan said. Right now, hes been cleared. He worked out yester day on his own; he did some running. Hell probably go through half the contact right now. Provided the next two days go as planned with him physically, he should be able to play.
