Martin, 22, walks out of the Gainesville Police Criminal Investigations Bureau at 211 NW First St. after her arrest on charges of attempted murder and mother at about 10 a.m. Tuesday. CRIME TYLER JETTAlligator Staff WriterIn Blues Creek, a north Gainesville neighborhood, four people stood in the front yard of Evelyn and Lecreth Bakers house Tuesday afternoon. They talked about what happened three doors down the night before, because, really, there was nothing else to talk about. Gainesville Police gave an account of what happened Monday night: Late in the evening, Austin M. Jones, 22, and his cousin, Maranda J. Martin, 22, donned masks and broke into 78-year-old Paul D. Quandts house at 4854 NW 75th Road. They came prepared with two rolls of tape, a stun gun and two pistols. Martin used to work for a health-care service that provided aid to Quandt, and she knew he had a safe in the house. The pair demanded the combination. When Quandt, a military veteran, refused, his hands were taped and he was shot with a stun gun. Then he was beaten and stabbed. Quandt was in critical condition Tuesday night, police said. Quandts status was unknown as of press time. The charges against Martin and of late Tuesday night, according to the Alachua County Jail website. Neighbors were surprised at the brutality of the crime. Nothing like this happens in Blues Creek, Jack Alter said, who had gone on a walk Tuesday afternoon before stopping to talk about the case with some neighbors. Its pretty quiet here. As close as we lived, we never heard a thing, Evelyn Baker said. Not a thing. Jones and Martin took the safe with more than $20,000 worth of gold, silver, and put it in the trunk of Quandts white Cadillac. Jones then drove off in the Cadillac, according to GPD spokeswoman Cpl. Home invasion suspects in custody SAMANTHA SHAVELLAlligator WriterUF Student Senate gave its preliminary approval to Student Government election code revisions at Tuesday nights meeting. A majority of the senators voted to approve the changes, although several senators said the new rules need to be revised. I do have issues with it, said Unite Party spokeswoman Sen. Christina Bonarrigo. But I do believe these need to be passed in a timely matter. The election codes need to be passed six weeks before the spring elections for the changes to apply. Elections are scheduled for Feb. 21 and Feb. 22. Some students who voted in the fall elections were listed with the wrong location-based district. Students whose home addresses rather than their school addresses were registered with the university were placed in the district for commuter students. Under the changes proposed by the election codes revision committee, the supervisor of elections would no longer be required to provide a map listing at each polling location.

In a Jan. 7 editorial, the Orwho squandered or misused their positions of power through corruption. Florida Senate President Mike Haridopolos (R-Merritt Island) made the list. Haridopolos teaches political science courses on campus during the Fall semester and instructs students who participate in a Tallahassee internship during the legislative session in the spring. UF pays him $75,000 a year, according to records from the OfResearch. In November, Haridopolos admitted he lied to a Miami Herald reporter in April 2010 when he denied knowing about a secret settlement agreement with former Republican Party of Florida Chairman Jim Greer. Also in 2010, Haridopolos was found guilty of an ethics violation for failing to properly complete the legislative session, the Miami Herald published Haridopolos rebuttal to a Herald editorial that decried his actions. I, too, regret these mistakes, but as you read through each one, I hope you see that each of these was just that a mistake, he wrote. UF spokeswoman Janine Sikes said Haridopolos political behavior has no effect on his teaching status because UF evaluates its employees based on their work with students.Newspaper: Central Florida let down by UF professor, state senatorBonarrigo SEE INVASION, PAGE 8 SEE SENATOR, PAGE 8 SEE SENATE, PAGE 8Orlando Sentinel names Haridopolos in editorial After challenging his team to improve its play on defense, Florida responded in a big way on Tuesday against Georgia.

The federal Transportation Security Administration is defending its deciing from Las Vegas. The TSA says in a blog comment posted Monday the cupcake ing, which is considered a gel according to a policy designed to secure travelers from terrorists seeking to evade detection by using explosives made of plastics, liquids or gels. Peabody (PEE-buh-dee) resiceremony surrounding Gov. Rick Scotts State of the State address. He blamed lawmakers, including himself, for contributing to the problems by promoting parochial interests of their local schools at the expense of the entire system. Senate President Mike Haridopolos stressed the importance of balancing the budget in his opening remarks. Lawmakers are facing a potential $2 billion shortfall. Scott, Haridopolos and Cannon agree the budget must be balanced without raising taxes and fees. The Republican governor, though, told lawmakers he just cannot budget on his recommendation to increase education spending by $1 billion. In his address, Scott mostly stuck to the familiar theme of cutting taxes and red tape for businesses in the belief that it will expand Floridas economy and create jobs in a state where 10 percent of workers remain unemployed, although thats 2 percentage points less than a year ago. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS dent Rebecca Hains was barred from taking her cupcake onto a plane last month when a TSA agent said icing in the jar exceeded amounts of gels allowed in carry-on luggage. Hains has called that terrible logic. The TSA says travelers can take cakes, pies and cupcakes through security checkpoints but should expect they might get additional screening.

Cannon chose to zero in on higher education in his opening statement as the annual session began two months earlier than usual due to redistricting. He said higher education is too critical to Floridas economy to be ignored. The address came amid political rallies and protests, as well as the traditional pomp and

BENJAMIN S. BRASCHAlligator WriterAfter a year of international social movements, Time magazine chose The Protester as its Person of the Year. Protesters in Gainesville, including members of Occupy Gainesville, Students for a Democratic Society and Fight Back Florida, hope to continue their momentum from last year and keep bringing attention to their causes. Occupy Gainesville is still using Bo Diddley Community Plaza as a headquarters for its occupation. It is looking to focus on foreclosure issues in the community. Students for a Democratic Society have not introduced its plans to continue advocacy for the upcoming year, but plans to do so in the coming week. Fight Back Florida, a group started in March in response to Gov. Rick Scotts budget cuts, is trying to repeal Scotts policies. Kenzie Cooke, a 20-year-old Occupy Gainesville member, said she hopes Time magazines announcement, which was published Dec. 14, will inspire those on the fence about participating in the Occupy Movement to join. My main focus is to help student, activist and minority groups come together through the Occupy Movement and beyond, Cooke said. She said Occupy Gainesville will work on advocating for foreclosure reform. percent has addressed consumption wealth in America, she said. These issues protesters are involved with arent new. UF psychology sophomore, said it meant a lot to her that the magazine deemed The Protester as the person who had the greatest impact during the year. It showed that Time magazine, a prime source of entertainment, believed in activists, said Schmelzer, a member of Students for a Democratic Society at UF. Last year, the student organization started an anti-tuition hike movement, but it will be putting its efforts elsewhere this semester. Schmelzer said she didnt plans at the moment. Fight Back Florida plans to continue pushing against Scotts policies. Dave Schneider, a 21-year-old recent UF graduate and statewide organizer of Fight Back Florida, said he is continuing his activism after graduating and is budget cuts in Tallahassee now that the state legislative session has started. What we want is for working people to rule society again, he said. CLARE LENNONAlligator Staff WriterResults from a UF research project on young plants might help make the nations agriculture more fer tile. A UF research team set out more than 10 years ago to study the chromosomes of a Northwest plant species. During the process, the team discovered its research may help reduce issues with plants that have a hard time reproducing. Lead author and UF postdoctoral researcher Michael Chester said the research team studied the changing chromosomes in a plant species that formed in the last century a veritable baby in plant terms. He said the research team, led by the Florida Museum of Natural Historys Pam Soltis, did not set out to impact agriculture research. Chester and the research team studied polyploidy, which is a process during which chromosomes multiply. According to a UF news release, the researchers studied about 70 Tragopogon miscellus plants, which Polyploidy can inhibit the plants ability to reproduce, and its common in many important agricultur al crops in the U.S., including coffee, corn and apples, according to the news release. The research might explain why some agricultural plant varieties are infertile, Chester said. He said the research has not yet been applied to agriculture. Research like this is what keeps UF faculty on top of the latest innovations, said Win Phillips, senior If UF didnt emphasize research, he said, then we would simply keep repeating the same stuff. 4, ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 11, 2012Dana Burke / Alligator StaffOccupy supporter Annette Gilley, 58, makes a poster on Bo Diddley Community Plaza on Tuesday for Occupy the Courts, an event that will take place Jan. 20.

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 11, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 5 STUDENT LIFE JULIA GLUMAlligator WriterFor Dylan Fisher, buying textbooks becomes a treasure hunt. When the UF exploratory freshman discombination of new, used and rental books that would reduce the damage to his wallet. Im going from Amazon to Neebo trying to strategize how to get the cheapest textbooks, said Fisher, 18. His search is common for college students. But comparing prices should not be that hard, said UF alumnus Steven Kennedy in an email. Thats why Kennedy, 26, started work on Textbooks.org, a website that compares textbook prices for free. I thought that there had to be a better to create a website that would help students save time and money, he said. Kennedy said about 7,000 people have visited the site to compare prices on nearly 5,000 books since its launch in December. The site compares prices for more than 30 online merchants, he said. After a student types in a books title or ISBN, the website compares its prices from textbook sellers such as Amazon, Half.com and Barnesandnoble.com. It then displays a list of the lowest prices for new, used and rental textbooks, including e-books and international editions. The results are sorted from the cheapest overall price the cost of the book plus shipping to the highest. Users can then click through to the vendors websites to purchase their books. In addition, the website has blog posts at various colleges. These entries give information about alternatives to university bookstores. For example, UFs post mentions Orange and Blue Textbooks and the Florida Book Store. Students can also search to see how much each merchant would pay to buy back their used textbooks. Ive heard from several students and teachers who are excited about how useful the site is, Kennedy said. Fisher ended up spending about $150 on nitely use Textbooks.org in the future. cule ways to save money, he said.Textbook site compares prices GEORGIA OKEEFFES AUSTRIAN COPPER ROSE IV IS ONE OF THE 12 WORKS.

Georgia OKeeffes Austrian Copper Rose IV inspired museum curator Dulce Roman to acquire the other 11 works. She said she was drawn to the The exhibits feminine focus was triggered by the large library of female artists famous for botanical paintings in history. Georgia OKeeffe has always sat alone in galleries, she said. So I thought this was an interesting approach to complement [the painting]. The exhibit is scheduled to be on display until mid-June, Roman said. However, it might stay up until Summer B, depending on whether the museums focus changes. The pieces in Women of Art and Science are part of the larger workson-paper modern art collection of about 300 pieces from between the Renaissance and 1850 acquired by the Harn Museum.Harn Museum exhibit to highlight female artists

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 11, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 7 UF shouldnt ignore growing vegan populationWhile we were gone for winter break, the percentage of Gators who support UFs smart, ethical and sustainable transition to a Meatless Monday in its two dining halls grew to 10 percent. About 5,000 people, more than the entire population of the city of Newberry to our north, now support the growing trend Mondays. And its not surprising. The Philadelphia Inquirer released a report in October that found 12 percent of college students now identify as vegetarian or vegan. Even in Gainesville, a city that birthed Sonnys BBQ and where the scents of pig manure mingle across the highway, our univer sity was named the second most vegan-friendly university in the nation. Its time for UF to realize that Gators, like the rest of the world, know that a reduced-meat diet lowers ones carbon footprint enormously, helps end the suffering of billions of animals every year and decreases ones risk of obesity, Type 2 diabetes, stroke, many forms of cancer and heart disease. While there will always be a select few Gators who ardently oppose a transition to a Meatless Monday even if a switch to offering vegan jambalaya rather than baked chicken in two dining halls on campus will never affect them 10 percent is a argue. Its time for UF and Gator Dining Services to realize that this is something a growing majority of students actually want, rather than a simple, disorganized fringe movement. It is something thats been endorsed ty, GatorWell Health Promotion Services, the Humane Society of the United States and the Earth Day Network. And its time for UF and Gator Dining Services to realize a transition to Meatless Mondays could even save money. Student leaders will be meeting with dinto discuss the universitys growing desire to support a Meatless Monday. In the meantime, I encourage everyone to join the Facebook group by searching for Meat-Free Monday at the University of Florida. Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves and become part of the 10 percent. Jared Misner Campaign director of the Meatless Mondays campaign at UFLetter to the EditorAs the votes from the Iowa Republican caucus began to roll in a week ago, most of the nations viewers were riveted by the small, eventual winner, Mitt Romney. However, for conservatives such as myself, the battle had been won before the clock struck midnight. Ron Paul, the hero of the chirping sect of liber tarianism, had been vanquished with only 21 per previous momentum. Years from now, may the average Iowa voter who stood staunchly against the ideological torrent from the Ron Paul camp strip his sleeve, show his scars and say, This vote I cast on caucus day. Now perhaps Ron Paul is not as monstrous as a Shakespearean villain. However, Paul is a follower of the poisonous ideology of libertarianism, a set of principles endorsing complete individual social seems compatible with conservatism, with its stance against centralized state power and corporate bailouts. But the marriage between conservatism and libertarianism is not a natural one and will eventually serve to rip the Republican Party asunder. In order to understand this, one must ask, What is conservatism? It might be more appropriate to say what it is not. Conservatism is not an ideology as libertarianism is. Conservatism is not a vehicle toward the vague enlightenment notion of progress. In fact, the notion of progress is antithetical to conservatism, as conservatism is not a set of beliefs that serve as a drum roll toward a precise utopian ideal. Conservatism is a way of living, a disposition and attitude toward life. Conservatism is educated by traditional norms, not a set of 20th-century novels authored by a deranged Soviet expatriate. Conservatives believe individual freedom without communal purpose is meaningless; libertarians believe individual freedom is a purpose itself. On paper, the average conservative and the average libertarian want the same changes in Washington: less government and more economic freedom. However, a Ron Paul nomination would set a dangerous precedent, because libertarians do not pretend to care about social norms they say only that everyone has equal freedom, as though no freedoms were mutually exclusive. A libertarian victory would create a political environment in which a nominees understanding of virtue and morality is irrelevant, much as it is in Europe. There is something unique about American voters. We care about what a candidate thinks about the moral tradition our ancestors set. It may be foolhar dy to believe political careerists could ever hold any Ron Pauls defeat in Iowa was a victory for conservatives. However, the momentum is still in favor of his progressive ideology. In colleges and universities around the country, including here at UF, Paul and his ilk have enormous support. I beseech you all to resist the honeyed words of libertarian dogma. Be wary of any doctrine that promises to bring radical change on the right or the left. Libertarianism has become its own secular religion, which will color your understanding of every issue, be it economic or social. When attempting to understand the world around you, look not to the radical fringes of politics but to the ancestors who came before us. They believed in small government not because it was virtuous in and of itself but because it allowed people to live virtuously. There is no virtue in libertarianism only freedom for its own sake, and all the freedom in the world will not serve you if nothing exists to guide it. Luke Bailey is a history junior at UF.

See story, page 15. David Carr / Alligator Florida sophomore center Patric Young (4) blocks Georgia guard Gerald Robinsons shot attempt in the second half of the Gators 70-48 win on Tuesday in the ODome. MATT WATTS Alligator Staff Writer Georgia guard Gerald Robinson spun 360 degrees in the lane, blowing by Erving Walker with his sights set on the rim. But Robinson didnt see a trailing Patric Young, who swatted the layup attempt into the sixth row. Minutes later, Young closed out on a 3-point look from UGAs Dustin Ware, projecting his nearly 7-foot frame into Wares face and forcing the shot to bounce off iron. (Robinson) was trying to make the highlight reel for ESPN SportsCenter right there, Young said. But maybe I made the top 10 on making a block on him trying to get a little fancy. The two standout plays from Young highlighted a renewed emphasis on defense headed up by coach Billy Donovan after a lackluster effort in a road loss to Tennessee on Saturday. Florida allowed Tennessee to shoot 51 beyond the arc in a disappointing 67-56 loss in Knoxville, Tenn., last weekend, and Donovan challenged the Gators in practice during the weekend. Florida (13-4, 1-1 Southeastern Conference) responded Tuesday night with a 70-48 victory against rival Georgia (9-7, 0-2 SEC) in the OConnell Center. I was much more pleased with our effort ness, being alert, sharp, focused, Donovan said. I thought we defended them very, very well. Obviously, we held them to 48 points. Any time you hold a team to 48 points, youve done a pretty good job defensively. Donovan made a concerted effort to emphasize defensive intensity in practice leading up to the game, and what better opportunity for a turnaround then to have Georgia, with the lowest scoring average (62.9 ppg) Inspired defense helps Gators rout Dawgs W elcome back to yet another glorious semester in Gainesville.

JOHN BOOTHEAlligator Staff Writer Kenny Boynton knew Brad Beals shooting woes wouldnt last long. After watching Beal, a freshman guard, slip deeper into a four-game, 14-of-47 shooting funk Saturday at Tennessee, Boynton said he didnt know exactly when or where, but an offensive breakthrough would soon happen for his teammate. As it turned out, Boynton needed just one game for his prediction to pan out. Along with 10 rebounds, Beal scored 17 points and went 4 of 8 on 3-pointers, to lead No. 13 Flor ida past Georgia 70-48 on Tuesday night. It was great; Im happy for him, said Boynton, a junior guard. I said last game there was going to be a [time] when he came out and played good. And I think he in the SEC, this gives him a lot of Though coach Billy Donovan did not want to characterize Beals play before Tuesday as a slump, he said the freshman starter was struggling recently with his comfort level within the Gators offense. Beal turned the ball over 14 times in his previous four games, Donovan credited the rise in giveaways to Beals eagerness to defer to his teammates. I really felt like the last couple days in practice he was starting sively, Donovan said. When he should be looking to shoot, when he should be looking to pass. And I think thats been something thats bogged him down a little bit, behis decision-making in his second SEC game was also drastically improved. Beal had just one turnover against the Bulldogs, despite doing most of his damage in the second half on aggressive drives to the basthrow line on three fouls once he got inside the paint. Coach Donovan helped me realize, as well as Kenny and the rest of the players they told me just relax, Beal said. They said its going to come. Kenny told me he went through the same thing his freshman year. hit three straight 3-pointers in the stretch UFs lead to 20 points. Four other Gators, including Boynton, who scored 17 points, would go a combined 3 of 15 from three. Beals re-emergence from three comes after hitting only two treys in his last four outings. Everybody has bad games and stuff like that, but I dont really get too involved in getting down on myself, Beal said. My teammates always have faith in me and my coaches as well. And I really just try to focus and concentrate on the team concepts. Contact John Boothe at jboothe@ alligator.org. The show will be available online at alligatorSports.org/ videoshow.

The Gators took full advantage, limiting the Bulldogs to a 20-for-55 and setting a season low in points allowed (48). We could have done even better than we did, Young said.

The Gators also created over 10 times. on the offensive glass and made 7 of the 18 threes it attempted, momentarily allowing the Bulldogs to pull within 13 points late in the second half. But for the majority of the game, Florida pursued aggres sively each loose ball and rebound, something it failed to do in the road loss to Tennessee. Against the Volunteers, Donovan said the Gators gave up too many easy shots and didnt maintain focus on defense. That wasnt a problem Tuesday, as Florida contested nearly every shot Georgia put up until the game was out of reach. We played a lot harder, guard Brad Beal said of how UF was able to architect the quick turnaround on defense. UAB and Tennessee, we gave up too many points in transition. We were too lackadaisical on defense, and tonight I feel we did a pretty good job. broke out of a miniature freshman slump, tying Kenny Boynton for the game-high in points with 17.

16, ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 11, 2012 Alligator File Photo Florida coach Rhonda Faehn (above) was impressed by Kytra Hunters debut last week, which netted the freshman an all-around title. GYMNASTICS LANDON WATNICK Alligator Writer Coach Rhonda Faehn may have found herself another dynamic freshman. Kytra Hunter made a huge statement as an all-around competitor in No. 3 Floridas 196.025-194.675 road win against North Carolina State on Friday. In her collegiate debut, Hunter all-around title, scoring a 9.85 on vault, a 9.775 on uneven parallel bars, a 9.775 on balance beam and a Hunter is the fourth Gator in 25 years to claim an all-around title in a season opener. ented and a phenomenal athlete, Faehn said. That was fun to be able to see her get out there and do a great job right from the start. Hunter, who hails from Frederick, Md., was a member of the 2009-10 and 2010-11 U.S. Senior National Teams and has competed in the 2009 European Tour and the Visa Championships, among other events. Hunter said competing with the U.S. National Team helped her learn to calm her nerves in front of large audiences. So when Hunter debuted her 2,512 at the Reynolds Coliseum in Raleigh, N.C., last Friday, everything went smoothly. It felt great, she said. I mean, as a freshman, I got to get my feet wet. Hunters all-around efforts add to a formidable core that includes junior All-Americans Ashane Dickerson and Marissa King. For the Gators, Hunters breakout debut has to feel like deja vu. In last years opener against Nebraska, then-freshman Alaina Johnson scored a 39.425 as an all-around competitor. Like Hunter, Johnson Johnson, the 2011 Southeastern Conference Freshman of the Year, followed up her debut with even stronger scores in her second meet: a 9.95 in vault, a 9.925 in bars and a Hunter said she hopes she can continue the trend when Florida hosts Illinois-Chicago on Friday night at 7 in the Gators home opener. She added that during this weeks practices she has been working on her landings, as well as handstands on bars. said. I did make mistakes (against North Carolina State), and going wasnt going to be perfect. But Id rather have mistakes that I can go While Hunter remains selfassured, her coach might be even abilities. She has that star quality, Faehn said. I say that shes all business because she gets through everything so quickly. But just her sheer power, her vault and her tumbling, is just phenomenal. I would say the best in the country. Freshman Hunter makes early impact We know shes extremely talented and a phenomenal athlete.That was fun to be able to see her get out there and do a great job right from the start.Rhonda FaehnUF gymnastics coach
