UFs Travel and Recreation Program, known as TRiP, has made the transition from a student-run organization TRiP plans and takes students on outdoor leisure and adventure excursions. Program coordinator Jackie Matthews said the changes will make trips cheaper for students, create more leadership and professional development opportunities for members. The organization will also begin to pay trip leaders and other staff. Im extremely excited about it, Matthews said. The group was generating almost all of its own fundcially supported by the Department of Student Activities and Involvement, she said. The structural changes go into effect this semester, she said. The organization is reviewing applications for new leaders for the spring. Previously, TRiP members would meet and vote on trips and the running of the organization itself.

FRIDAY, JANUARY 13, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 3 ALLI LANGLEYAlligator WriterScooter sales in Gainesville continue to rise, despite the price increase for scooter and motorcycle decals at UF last semester. Since August, students have paid $144 a year and $72 a semester for the decals, the same amount they pay for car decals. In the 2010-11 school year, the decals cost $96 a year and $48 a semester. However, the store owners at New Scooters 4 Less and SwampCycles both said scooter sales are going up. At Solano Cycle, Manager A.J. Wallace said more students are buying scooters because they are cheaper, and they are easier to park on campus than cars. Ben Stein, a 20-year-old political science sophomore, said he enjoys being able to park his scooter next to Library West and walk to class. For the money you pay for it, he said, its way worth it. Scooter and motorcycle decal sales at UF were also unaffected by the price increase. Ron Fuller, assistant director of UF Transportation and Parking Services, said the number of students who bought yearlong scooter or motorcycle decals between Sept. 1 and Dec. 31 increased from 1,969 in 2010 to 1,990 in 2011. Fuller said he thinks the decal sales keep rising because students still want the conveniently located spots reserved for smaller vehicles. Bernard Johnson, a 22year-old Spanish senior, said last semesters price increase him. If youre going to change [the price] for one vehicle then you should change it for the others as well, he said. Fuller said scooter and motorcycle decals originally cost less than car decals because parking services wanted to encourage students to use the smaller, more sustainable vehicles. However, a 2006 survey of students who bought the decals found that most students would walk, bike or ride buses if they didnt ride scooters. Students who ride scooters to campus tend to make eight to 10 trips a day, whereas car drivers park and then walk or ride buses around campus. Driving a car to campus is actually more sustainable than riding a scooter from class to class, Fuller said, so the department decided to make the decal prices the same. After compromising with Student Government, the price increase was phased in throughout the last three years. Dana Burke / Alligator StaffScooter decal prices increased from $96 a year and $48 a semester to $144 a year and $72 a semester in August. Scooter sales up despite decal price hike IT USED TO COST $4 TO PARK IN THE GARAGES. BENJAMIN S. BRASCHAlligator WriterParking for hospital visits will now likely involve less hassle. UF&Shands began providing free parking to patients, family members and visitors Monday. About 2,000 people a day park at UF&Shands, said David Guzick, senior vice president for health affairs and president of the UF&Shands Health System. Parking fees were used to cover the $1.5 million to $2 million needed to maintain the garage, but now those costs will be paid by UF faculty medical practices and the Shands at UF medical center, he said. We like to think it is Gators giving back to Gators, he said. UF&Shands has three garages and two parking lots for patients and visitors. It used to cost $4 to park in the garages and $6 for valet parking, he said. A lack of parking is an impediment, and we wanted to get rid of that impediment, Guzick said. Molly Williams, a 22-year-old food science and human nutrition senior, said she paid the $4-charge every time she visited her friend, who is undergoing chemotherapy treatment at Shands at UF. I think it will make it a lot easier on the parents to come and go as they please, she said.Shands to provide free visitor parkingPrice increase took effect in August For the money you pay for it, its way worth it.Ben Steinpolitical science sophomore

4, ALLIGATOR FRIDAY, JANUARY 13, 2012 LOCAL ADRIANNA PAIDASAlligator WriterCommunion wine may not be the only alcohol near downtown churches if a city ordinance gets altered. The City Plan Board passed a petition to change an ordinance that forbid bars to set up shop within 300 feet of a church or other religious establishment anywhere within city limits. If changed, the ordinance will get rid of the distance requirement between bars and places of religious assembly only within the central city district and the tourist-oriented district, said Bob Woods, city spokesman. The central city district is an area of downtown bordered by Northwest and Southwest Sixth Streets and Northeast and Southeast Third Streets. It encompasses Bo Diddley Community Plaza, the Hippodrome State Theatre and multiple restaurants and bars. The tourist-oriented district refers to a small area on Southwest 13th Street near Williston Road. The idea to exclude downtown Gainesville from the rule was offered after downtown business owners told city staff they were concerned with the current ordinance, according to a document written by the staff. If the current ordinance does not change, new bars will still be required to set up at least 300 feet away from a religious establishment, according to a city document about the change. Im not going to say Id love to have a bar right next to us, but we havent had a problem with any of them in the past, said the Rev. Louanne Loch, rector at Holy Trinity Episcopal Church. The church, located at 100 NE First St., is across the street from the downtown plaza and next to City Hall. Loch said she understands downtown is a community of businesses that need to help one another out. As long as it doesnt cause lewd behavior But if these problems arise, then we will have to address them.Bars may get leeway near churches ABOUT 300 WOMEN ARE EXPECTED TO SIGN UP. CLARE LENNONAlligator Staff WriterUF sororities are expecting about 300 students to sign up for spring recruitment, up from about 200 last year. Recruitment, also known as rush, starts Sunday for Interfraternity Council fraternities and Panhellenic Council sororities, said Carey Mays, of Sorority and Fraternity Affairs. Mays said although fraternities see an average of 250 students rush each spring, the number has been steadily rising for sororities. He said about 80 students went through sorority rush in 2009 and about 120 did so in 2010. Both sororities and fraternities see higher numbers in the fall, Mays said. UF Panhellenic Council President Cari Swertfager said about 1,100 students went through sorority rush in the fall. She attributed the jump in spring numbers to an increase in marketsessions. She said about 11 of the 16 Panhellenic sororities are participating in spring rush. All of the fraternities are participating, Mays said. National Pan-Hellenic Council and Multicultural Greek Council sororities and fraternities usually conduct rush independently, he said. A sorority rush informational meeting will be held at 6 p.m. Sunday in the Reitz Union Grand Ballroom.Sorority and fraternity spring rush begins Sunday Im not going to say Id love to have a bar right next to us, but we havent had a problem with any of them in the past.the Rev.

FRIDAY, JANUARY 13, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 7 On Dec. 10, 2011, Lowes Companies, Inc. decided to pull its advertisements from TLCs All-Amer ican Muslim. This show is an eight-part reality families in the Detroit suburb of Dearborn, Mich. Lowes decided to pull its advertisement from the show due to criticisms from the conservative Christian group, Florida Family Association. FFA claims TLCs All-American Muslim is propaganda clearly designed to counter legitimate and present-day concerns about many Muslims who are advancing Islamic fundamentalism and be ordinary folks while excluding many Islamic believers whose agenda poses a clear and present danger to liber ties and traditional values that the majority of Americans cherish. They also claim that the show is attempting to manipulate Americans into ignoring the threat of jihad about the jihad threat would somehow victimize these nice people in this show. Some members go even as far as claiming via various interviews and statements on major TV networks that they were offended because the show failed to depict extremist Muslims. It is true that Lowes certainly cannot be held responsible for these very ignorant and bigoted views, but its decision to agree with these views by removing advertising from the show is incredibly hurtful. How can citizens of letters from a fringe group to cause such a big decision from a major company. Islamophobia creates tension and makes people assume that all Muslims are terrorists. In reality, Islam is a peaceful religion. Yes, it is unfor tunate that there are those who will take the words and teachings of Islam out of context or radicalize it for their own agenda. That is why it is the duty of those who are educated to share with those who dont know the true meaning of all religions from Christianity to Islam to Hinduism. Still, there is no excuse when those with closed minds try to manipulate society and large corporations into advocating their closed-minded views. The actions of the Inquisition do not represent Christianity, a very peaceful and loving religion. Likewise, terrorism does not represent Islam. It is the duty of society and its people to unite in promoting good and forbidding evil to ensure a peaceful and promising future. Although Lowes claims that it is refraining from the public debate, its decision to pull advertising from AllAmerican Muslim is making a clear statement. Lowes decision to pull its advertising was very offensive and ignorant. How can we begin to combat outdated and marginalized views of American Muslims when a giant retailer like Lowes does not have the decency to stand up to racist views? I am calling on Lowes to publicly apologize for its decision to pull advertising from TLCs All-American Muslim.

Last month, Rep. Bill Proctor invited the 11 State University System presidents to discuss ideas that could facilitate excellence in Floridas state university institutions and system, he wrote in a letter. Proctor, who is the chair of the state House education committee, outlined seven main points he wishes each president to address: unigineering, math), general education, research, collaboration, accountability and mission. A particular emphasis will be placed on the general education. University presidents will be asked how their schools will address the states need for Proctor also wants to know how presidents will ensure students graduate with strong problem-solving and critical-thinking skills, regardless of their majors. Jane Adams, vice president of University Relations, said the education committee meeting will be interesting because Proctor indicated it will be more of a conversation than a hearing. President Machen will cover the points Proctor asked the university presidents to discuss, but its hard to predict where the conversation will go, Adams said. The legislatures increased focus on higher education is encouraging, she said. We welcome the increased transparency, she said. During the 2011 session, the legislature approved a budget for UF that was $54 million less than the previous years budget. A state Senate budget meeting previously scheduled for today was canceled. In December, state Senate Budget Committee Chair J.D. Alexander made a massive data request from Floridas 11 State University System schools, asking for all university revenues and expenditures, detailed degree cost comparisons and job placement data, large donations to the universities and executive travel expenses, among others. After receiving the information, which totaled 5,000 pages, Alexander decided Wednesday to cancel the meeting.Machen to talk higher education with House committee THEY SAY THE MEDIA READ TOO MUCH INTO HIS SUCCESS. JULIA GLUMAlligator WriterWhens Tim Tebow going to be made a saint? At the Gator Wesley Foundations Bible Study on Wednesday, a student had asked the question as a joke, but it prompted a serious discussion. olic, said the Rev. David Fuquay, Gator Wesleys executive director. But some say Tebows dedication to his faith is not a laughing matter. Gainesville Christian student ministries have been following his success with the Denver Broncos, and theyre not the only ones. Between a Saturday Night Live skit parodying Tebow and Jesus in the locker room and the rise of Tebowing, it seems like fans cant get enough of the Christian quarterback. Some are even calling him the Mile High Messiah. Fuquay said this might not be a good thing. Fan is short for fanatic, and I think weve gotten a little too fanatical, he said. The people who project on him, calling him Jesus which is ridiculous. Its bordering on idolatry. The fans place unreasonable expectations on him, Fuquay said. I think Tebows faith in God is so much who he is that it does affect what kind of player he is, Fuquay said. But thats not the same as saying that God is intervening supernaturally in these games. The media reads too much into Tebows success, said vice president of UFs Campus Crusade Ryan Delk. For example, NBC Sports reported a smoke cloud that formed a halo over Mile High Stadium on Sunday. Whenever you have a situation where a person is in the spotlight, theres going to be incentives for people to try to read into things that arent there, Delk said. Media outlets make a bigger deal of Tebows religion than he does, Baptist Collegiate Ministries. Because he is a Christian who is a football player, not a football player who is a Christian, theyre having trouble coming to grips with who he Gilley thinks Tebow would be bothered by people mocking his faith. Fuquay agreed. When kneeling on your knee in prayer becomes being called Tebowing instead of praying, thats taking it the wrong way, he said.Religious leaders: Messianic Tebow talk should be temperedMachen

FRIDAY, JANUARY 13, 2012 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Like Pizza? (Or Journalism?)Were holding an Open House today from noon to 3 p.m. We have openings for beat writers and are looking Cant Get Enough alligatorSports Podcast?Youre in luck. For the second day in a row, host Greg Luca is dropping knowledge on your iTunes feed. This time, hes joined by staff writer JOHN BOOTHE When Patric Young is posting up and waiting for a pass, it usuhim. lowing day, and in practice, coach Billy Donovan drills the need for Florida to maintain an insideout approach to compliment the NCAAs top 3-point shooting attack. With Young as the only starter to not attempt a three this season, getting the junior center in scoring position has been No. 19 Floridas (13-4, 1-1 Southeastern Conference) focus as it travels to take on South Carolina (8-8, 0-2 SEC) Saturday at 7 p.m. That is one of the challenges that were having in the team, Donovan said. Our guys are looking for Young, and I think for Erving Walker and Kenny Boynton, it is a different frontcourt for them than what theyve had to Last season, center Vernon Macklin and forward Alex Tyus made entry passes into the paint easy with their ability to gain deep position close to the basket. But this year, with perimeteroriented forward Erik Murphy at times leaving the 6-foot-9 Young to work alone in the post, the transition to a new frontline has not always gone smoothly. There are things that we run for Young to get him touches, but teams are going to start taking those things away, Donovan said. We need to get better at making those decisions, of recognizing him. In the Gators pair of SEC games, Young was limited to single-digit shot attempts, despite the fact hes shot below 50 percent only once in his last 10 outings. Donovan said there were opportunities to feed Young the ball when he rolled off screens in Floridas league-opening loss to Tennessee, but UFs guards were unable to make the extra pass. Coach was telling us to get Coach Rhonda Faehn and the season tonight against IllinoisChicago at 7 in the OConnell Center. See story, page 16. David Carr / AlligatorCenter Patric Young has shot below 50 percent just once in the past 10 games, but he has had less than 10 attempts in both SEC games. JOE MORGAN With Florida trailing 53-49 and just more than two minutes to play, senior guard Lanita Bartley stole the ball from Georgias Jasmine Johnson and Bartley sent the ball to senior guard Jordan Jones, who passed to junior forward Jennifer George in the paint. George took a hop step but forgot to dribble, turning the ball over with 2:03 remaining. The late traveling call was one of multiple missed oppor tunities for the Gators (11-6, 1-3 Southeastern Conference) in a 61-55 loss to the No. 19 Bulldogs (14-3, 3-1 SEC) Thursday. Im just as I know our team is really frustrated with playing such tremendous second halves, but having to overcome so much because we coach Amanda Butler said. The slow start, Floridas most glaring error, stemmed from shooting woes that had the Gators playing catch-up from the get-go. Florida went into halftime trailing 29-16, failing to reach 20 points before the break for a second consecutive game. We cant have those slow starts, especially in the SEC, said senior guard Deana Allen, who scored 13 of her 14 points in the second half. Youre not guaranteed to bounce back from that, even though you pick things up in the second half. Cold shooting from beyond the arc is primarily to blame for Floridas meager offensive outThe Gators were just 1 of 12 on 3-point attempts heading into the locker room, including four missed tries by Jones, who leads UF with a 34.8 3-point percentage. Sophomore guard Jaterra 3-pointer of the night at the 16:12 mark, but Floridas next 13 tries from beyond the arc were off. before Allen ended the drought, bottom of the basket for three points with 11:12 left to play. Weve just got to under stand what teams are trying to make us do, Allen said. [Georgia] started taking away our penetration. An inability to score consistently also negated the Gators success in the battle on the boards. Florida outrebounded Geor gia 38-30, including a 22-6 advantage on the offensive glass. However, the Gators managed only eight second-chance points, which tied the Bulldogs total on 16 fewer opportunities. THE TOM GREEN SHOWFlorida running back Jeff senses. Demps, who had pro football aspirations just two months ago, announced Thursday he has decided to put those lifelong dreams on the backburner and pursue a career in track. Back in November, just days before Thanksgiving, Demps was asked by reporters about his future beyond UF. If youre selected in the NFL Draft, Yeah, I mean coming up, like the Olympics, it wasnt there. I was always a football guy that watched football, and when I started running in high school, I started to look into track. I havent planned on it. All of my focus is on football. Do you track in the Im not sure. Probably not. Would Yeah. Do you really intend to stick by what you said as a freshman, that lying about that. So your dream is the NFL, not the Yeah, I was always a football But sometime between then and Thursday, Demps changed his tune and he couldnt have made a better decision. While Demps was good at football, and would have undoubtedly signed with an NFL team, his potential in track far exceeds what he had on the gridiron. Demps was always fast, and he took advantage ing past would-be defenders en route to 2,470 career rushing yards (eighth in school history) and 23 touchdowns in his four seasons. However, during his college career, Demps never registered 100 carries in a season and had trouble staying healthy during his junior and senior campaigns. Both of those brought into question his For all his hesitation, Demps ultimately made right choiceSEE TOM, P AGE 15 SEE W-HOOPS, P AGE 15 SEE HOOPS, P AGE 16 Tom Greentwitter: @tomas_verde There are things that we run for Young to get him touches.Billy DonovanUF coachAllen

On the track, Demps is a world-class sprinter not just an undersized football player who can outrun defenders. He has run multiple sub-10-second times in the 100-meter sprint and won an NCAA title back in March all while running at a bulked up football weight. With his focus shifted to track, Demps will undoubtedly shed 10-15 pounds. When that happens, he can be scary-fast and become a legitimate medal threat at the summer games, should he qualify at the U.S. Olympic trials in late June. Because his ceiling is higher on the track, Demps bank acthe endorsements that can come from that career than one in the NFL.

16, ALLIGATOR FRIDAY, JANUARY 13, 2012 Alligator File PhotoFlorida plans to utilize more freshmen early this season, and juniors Ashane Dickerson (left) and Marissa King have taken on leadership roles. Youngs scoring pivotal in quality wins against Arizona, FSUthe ball inside, Boynton said. You cant stare down the post. They did a great job trying to deny passes and we gotta do a better job at cutting back-door. Even with all the struggles distributing from the perimeter, Donovan said the ability to get post scoring also relies on Young battling harder. Though he touched the ball 23 times against against Tennessee, most of the time Young was too far away from the basket to be a threat. That is something that he has to get better at, Donovan said. We can win when he is consistently shut down because you have to defend and rebound. If they do try and shut him down, there is always going to be something else open. While the two strongest victories on Floridas resume Arizona on Dec. 7 and Florida State on Dec. 22 came at home and included Young scoring 15 or more points on a combined 22 shots, the same conviction to getting him the ball hasnt been seen away from the OConnell Center. In the Gators four road losses, Young has seen that production tail off, only breaking 10 attempts Ohio State. One thing that I would say about our team, that I really like, is that everything we are asking them to try and do, they are trying to do, Donovan said. They recognize that Young is a force inside and there needs to be a balance. Contact John Boothe at jboothe@ alligator.org. HOOPS, from page 14 LANDON WATNICKAlligator Writer The Gators are excited for their home opener tonight against Illinois-Chicago, but coach Rhonda Faehn is looking ahead. Instead of having her top gymnasts exhaust themselves as all-around competitors every weekend, Faehn said she will hold back some of her One thing were really trying to focus on is not getting caught up in whats going to happen right now, she said. We have to look at what our goal is for the long-run of the season. Of course, every competition that we go out and compete in, we want to win. Pacing was an issue for UF throughout last season. After peaking at the end of February, then-No. at the Southeastern Conference Championships to eventual 2011 national title winner Alabama. At Session II of NCAA Gymnastics Championplaced seventh, missing out on a spot in the NCAA We were so strong throughout the end of February, and it was a little bit hard to hold on physically to the end of the season, Faehn said. Were working on making sure we start very slow this season and pace ourselves and continue to get better and build up. So when No. 3 Florida (1-0) takes on UIC (1-0) in the OConnell Center tonight at 7, Faehn said her freshmen will get many opportunities to compete while the upperclassmen rest. Faehn said its challenging to hold back her more experienced gymnasts, but some are embracing leadership roles. Although they are only juniors, All-Americans Ashane Dickerson and Marissa King have become role models for the freshmen gymnasts and have gradually gained their trust and respect. Ive really tried to step up to that position through just giving the girls advice, said King, who won 2011 NCAA Vault title. Dickerson, on the other hand, has taken a differ ent approach to leading the youngsters. Im more like the person who leads by example, Dickerson said. Marissas the outgoing per son and shes more talkative than I am. Shes the vocal leader. While Dickerson and King are rallying the troops, Faehn is focused on the Gators long-term durability. (We have to) make sure that we have everyone at the end of the season at their best freshness, their best health, Faehn said. The regular season isnt as important as the end of the season. Injury update: Florida will likely be without one of its key contributors tonight. Sophomore Mackenzie Caquatto is out with camp for the U.S. world championships team back in September, although she is working on balance beam and uneven bars routines in practice. Faehn said last Friday that Caquatto would return to the bars lineup in a couple of weeks, and to beam in about four-to-six weeks. Gators easing into start of season UF Gymnastics Donovan

FRIDAY, JANUARY 13, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 3 ALLI LANGLEYAlligator WriterScooter sales in Gainesville continue to rise, despite the price increase for scooter and motorcycle decals at UF last semester. Since August, students have paid $144 a year and $72 a semester for the decals, the same amount they pay for car decals. In the 2010-11 school year, the decals cost $96 a year and $48 a semester. However, the store owners at New Scooters 4 Less and SwampCycles both said scooter sales are going up. At Solano Cycle, Manager A.J. Wallace said more students are buying scooters because they are cheaper, and they are easier to park on campus than cars. Ben Stein, a 20-year-old political science sophomore, said he enjoys being able to park his scooter next to Library West and walk to class. For the money you pay for it, he said, its way worth it. Scooter and motorcycle decal sales at UF were also unaffected by the price increase. Ron Fuller, assistant director of UF Transportation and Parking Services, said the number of students who bought yearlong scooter or motorcycle decals between Sept. 1 and Dec. 31 increased from 1,969 in 2010 to 1,990 in 2011. Fuller said he thinks the decal sales keep rising because students still want the conveniently located spots reserved for smaller vehicles. Bernard Johnson, a 22year-old Spanish senior, said last semesters price increase him. If youre going to change [the price] for one vehicle then you should change it for the others as well, he said. Fuller said scooter and motorcycle decals originally cost less than car decals because parking services wanted to encourage students to use the smaller, more sustainable vehicles. However, a 2006 survey of students who bought the decals found that most students would walk, bike or ride buses if they didnt ride scooters. Students who ride scooters to campus tend to make eight to 10 trips a day, whereas car drivers park and then walk or ride buses around campus. Driving a car to campus is actually more sustainable than riding a scooter from class to class, Fuller said, so the department decided to make the decal prices the same. After compromising with Student Government, the price increase was phased in throughout the last three years. Dana Burke / Alligator StaffScooter decal prices increased from $96 a year and $48 a semester to $144 a year and $72 a semester in August. Scooter sales up despite decal price hike IT USED TO COST $4 TO PARK IN THE GARAGES. BENJAMIN S. BRASCHAlligator WriterParking for hospital visits will now likely involve less hassle. UF&Shands began providing free parking to patients, family members and visitors Monday. About 2,000 people a day park at UF&Shands, said David Guzick, senior vice president for health affairs and president of the UF&Shands Health System. Parking fees were used to cover the $1.5 million to $2 million needed to maintain the garage, but now those costs will be paid by UF faculty medical practices and the Shands at UF medical center, he said. We like to think it is Gators giving back to Gators, he said. UF&Shands has three garages and two parking lots for patients and visitors. It used to cost $4 to park in the garages and $6 for valet parking, he said. A lack of parking is an impediment, and we wanted to get rid of that impediment, Guzick said. Molly Williams, a 22-year-old food science and human nutrition senior, said she paid the $4-charge every time she visited her friend, who is undergoing chemotherapy treatment at Shands at UF.

4, ALLIGATOR FRIDAY, JANUARY 13, 2012 LOCAL ADRIANNA PAIDASAlligator WriterCommunion wine may not be the only alcohol near downtown churches if a city ordinance gets altered. The City Plan Board passed a petition to change an ordinance that forbid bars to set up shop within 300 feet of a church or other religious establishment anywhere within city limits. If changed, the ordinance will get rid of the distance requirement between bars and places of religious assembly only within the central city district and the tourist-oriented district, said Bob Woods, city spokesman. The central city district is an area of downtown bordered by Northwest and Southwest Sixth Streets and Northeast and Southeast Third Streets. It encompasses Bo Diddley Community Plaza, the Hippodrome State Theatre and multiple restaurants and bars. The tourist-oriented district refers to a small area on Southwest 13th Street near Williston Road. The idea to exclude downtown Gainesville from the rule was offered after downtown business owners told city staff they were concerned with the current ordinance, according to a document written by the staff. If the current ordinance does not change, new bars will still be required to set up at least 300 feet away from a religious establishment, according to a city document about the change. Im not going to say Id love to have a bar right next to us, but we havent had a problem with any of them in the past, said the Rev. Louanne Loch, rector at Holy Trinity Episcopal Church. The church, located at 100 NE First St., is across the street from the downtown plaza and next to City Hall. Loch said she understands downtown is a community of businesses that need to help one another out. As long as it doesnt cause lewd behavior But if these problems arise, then we will have to address them.Bars may get leeway near churches ABOUT 300 WOMEN ARE EXPECTED TO SIGN UP. CLARE LENNONAlligator Staff WriterUF sororities are expecting about 300 students to sign up for spring recruitment, up from about 200 last year. Recruitment, also known as rush, starts Sunday for Interfraternity Council fraternities and Panhellenic Council sororities, said Carey Mays, of Sorority and Fraternity Affairs. Mays said although fraternities see an average of 250 students rush each spring, the number has been steadily rising for sororities. He said about 80 students went through sorority rush in 2009 and about 120 did so in 2010. Both sororities and fraternities see higher numbers in the fall, Mays said. UF Panhellenic Council President Cari Swertfager said about 1,100 students went through sorority rush in the fall. She attributed the jump in spring numbers to an increase in marketsessions. She said about 11 of the 16 Panhellenic sororities are participating in spring rush. All of the fraternities are participating, Mays said. National Pan-Hellenic Council and Multicultural Greek Council sororities and fraternities usually conduct rush independently, he said. A sorority rush informational meeting will be held at 6 p.m. Sunday in the Reitz Union Grand Ballroom.Sorority and fraternity spring rush begins Sunday Im not going to say Id love to have a bar right next to us, but we havent had a problem with any of them in the past.the Rev.

FRIDAY, JANUARY 13, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 7 On Dec. 10, 2011, Lowes Companies, Inc. decided to pull its advertisements from TLCs All-Amer ican Muslim. This show is an eight-part reality families in the Detroit suburb of Dearborn, Mich. Lowes decided to pull its advertisement from the show due to criticisms from the conservative Christian group, Florida Family Association. FFA claims TLCs All-American Muslim is propaganda clearly designed to counter legitimate and present-day concerns about many Muslims who are advancing Islamic fundamentalism and be ordinary folks while excluding many Islamic believers whose agenda poses a clear and present danger to liber ties and traditional values that the majority of Americans cherish. They also claim that the show is attempting to manipulate Americans into ignoring the threat of jihad about the jihad threat would somehow victimize these nice people in this show. Some members go even as far as claiming via various interviews and statements on major TV networks that they were offended because the show failed to depict extremist Muslims. It is true that Lowes certainly cannot be held responsible for these very ignorant and bigoted views, but its decision to agree with these views by removing advertising from the show is incredibly hurtful. How can citizens of letters from a fringe group to cause such a big decision from a major company. Islamophobia creates tension and makes people assume that all Muslims are terrorists. In reality, Islam is a peaceful religion. Yes, it is unfor tunate that there are those who will take the words and teachings of Islam out of context or radicalize it for their own agenda. That is why it is the duty of those who are educated to share with those who dont know the true meaning of all religions from Christianity to Islam to Hinduism. Still, there is no excuse when those with closed minds try to manipulate society and large corporations into advocating their closed-minded views. The actions of the Inquisition do not represent Christianity, a very peaceful and loving religion. Likewise, terrorism does not represent Islam. It is the duty of society and its people to unite in promoting good and forbidding evil to ensure a peaceful and promising future. Although Lowes claims that it is refraining from the public debate, its decision to pull advertising from AllAmerican Muslim is making a clear statement. Lowes decision to pull its advertising was very offensive and ignorant. How can we begin to combat outdated and marginalized views of American Muslims when a giant retailer like Lowes does not have the decency to stand up to racist views? I am calling on Lowes to publicly apologize for its decision to pull advertising from TLCs All-American Muslim.

Last month, Rep. Bill Proctor invited the 11 State University System presidents to discuss ideas that could facilitate excellence in Floridas state university institutions and system, he wrote in a letter. Proctor, who is the chair of the state House education committee, outlined seven main points he wishes each president to address: unigineering, math), general education, research, collaboration, accountability and mission. A particular emphasis will be placed on the general education. University presidents will be asked how their schools will address the states need for Proctor also wants to know how presidents will ensure students graduate with strong problem-solving and critical-thinking skills, regardless of their majors. Jane Adams, vice president of University Relations, said the education committee meeting will be interesting because Proctor indicated it will be more of a conversation than a hearing. President Machen will cover the points Proctor asked the university presidents to discuss, but its hard to predict where the conversation will go, Adams said. The legislatures increased focus on higher education is encouraging, she said. We welcome the increased transparency, she said. During the 2011 session, the legislature approved a budget for UF that was $54 million less than the previous years budget. A state Senate budget meeting previously scheduled for today was canceled. In December, state Senate Budget Committee Chair J.D. Alexander made a massive data request from Floridas 11 State University System schools, asking for all university revenues and expenditures, detailed degree cost comparisons and job placement data, large donations to the universities and executive travel expenses, among others. After receiving the information, which totaled 5,000 pages, Alexander decided Wednesday to cancel the meeting.Machen to talk higher education with House committee THEY SAY THE MEDIA READ TOO MUCH INTO HIS SUCCESS.

At the Gator Wesley Foundations Bible Study on Wednesday, a student had asked the question as a joke, but it prompted a serious discussion. olic, said the Rev. David Fuquay, Gator Wesleys executive director. But some say Tebows dedication to his faith is not a laughing matter. Gainesville Christian student ministries have been following his success with the Denver Broncos, and theyre not the only ones. Between a Saturday Night Live skit parodying Tebow and Jesus in the locker room and the rise of Tebowing, it seems like fans cant get enough of the Christian quarterback. Some are even calling him the Mile High Messiah. Fuquay said this might not be a good thing. Fan is short for fanatic, and I think weve gotten a little too fanatical, he said. The people who project on him, calling him Jesus which is ridiculous. Its bordering on idolatry. The fans place unreasonable expectations on him, Fuquay said. I think Tebows faith in God is so much who he is that it does affect what kind of player he is, Fuquay said. But thats not the same as saying that God is intervening supernaturally in these games. The media reads too much into Tebows success, said vice president of UFs Campus Crusade Ryan Delk. For example, NBC Sports reported a smoke cloud that formed a halo over Mile High Stadium on Sunday. Whenever you have a situation where a person is in the spotlight, theres going to be incentives for people to try to read into things that arent there, Delk said. Media outlets make a bigger deal of Tebows religion than he does, Baptist Collegiate Ministries. Because he is a Christian who is a football player, not a football player who is a Christian, theyre having trouble coming to grips with who he Gilley thinks Tebow would be bothered by people mocking his faith. Fuquay agreed. When kneeling on your knee in prayer becomes being called Tebowing instead of praying, thats taking it the wrong way, he said.Religious leaders: Messianic Tebow talk should be temperedMachen

FRIDAY, JANUARY 13, 2012 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Like Pizza? (Or Journalism?)Were holding an Open House today from noon to 3 p.m. We have openings for beat writers and are looking Cant Get Enough alligatorSports Podcast?Youre in luck. For the second day in a row, host Greg Luca is dropping knowledge on your iTunes feed. This time, hes joined by staff writer JOHN BOOTHE When Patric Young is posting up and waiting for a pass, it usuhim. lowing day, and in practice, coach Billy Donovan drills the need for Florida to maintain an insideout approach to compliment the NCAAs top 3-point shooting attack. With Young as the only starter to not attempt a three this season, getting the junior center in scoring position has been No. 19 Floridas (13-4, 1-1 Southeastern Conference) focus as it travels to take on South Carolina (8-8, 0-2 SEC) Saturday at 7 p.m. That is one of the challenges that were having in the team, Donovan said. Our guys are looking for Young, and I think for Erving Walker and Kenny Boynton, it is a different frontcourt for them than what theyve had to Last season, center Vernon Macklin and forward Alex Tyus made entry passes into the paint easy with their ability to gain deep position close to the basket. But this year, with perimeteroriented forward Erik Murphy at times leaving the 6-foot-9 Young to work alone in the post, the transition to a new frontline has not always gone smoothly. There are things that we run for Young to get him touches, but teams are going to start taking those things away, Donovan said. We need to get better at making those decisions, of recognizing him. In the Gators pair of SEC games, Young was limited to single-digit shot attempts, despite the fact hes shot below 50 percent only once in his last 10 outings. Donovan said there were opportunities to feed Young the ball when he rolled off screens in Floridas league-opening loss to Tennessee, but UFs guards were unable to make the extra pass. Coach was telling us to get Coach Rhonda Faehn and the season tonight against IllinoisChicago at 7 in the OConnell Center. See story, page 16. David Carr / AlligatorCenter Patric Young has shot below 50 percent just once in the past 10 games, but he has had less than 10 attempts in both SEC games. JOE MORGAN With Florida trailing 53-49 and just more than two minutes to play, senior guard Lanita Bartley stole the ball from Georgias Jasmine Johnson and Bartley sent the ball to senior guard Jordan Jones, who passed to junior forward Jennifer George in the paint. George took a hop step but forgot to dribble, turning the ball over with 2:03 remaining. The late traveling call was one of multiple missed oppor tunities for the Gators (11-6, 1-3 Southeastern Conference) in a 61-55 loss to the No. 19 Bulldogs (14-3, 3-1 SEC) Thursday. Im just as I know our team is really frustrated with playing such tremendous second halves, but having to overcome so much because we coach Amanda Butler said. The slow start, Floridas most glaring error, stemmed from shooting woes that had the Gators playing catch-up from the get-go. Florida went into halftime trailing 29-16, failing to reach 20 points before the break for a second consecutive game. We cant have those slow starts, especially in the SEC, said senior guard Deana Allen, who scored 13 of her 14 points in the second half. Youre not guaranteed to bounce back from that, even though you pick things up in the second half. Cold shooting from beyond the arc is primarily to blame for Floridas meager offensive outThe Gators were just 1 of 12 on 3-point attempts heading into the locker room, including four missed tries by Jones, who leads UF with a 34.8 3-point percentage. Sophomore guard Jaterra 3-pointer of the night at the 16:12 mark, but Floridas next 13 tries from beyond the arc were off. before Allen ended the drought, bottom of the basket for three points with 11:12 left to play. Weve just got to under stand what teams are trying to make us do, Allen said. [Georgia] started taking away our penetration. An inability to score consistently also negated the Gators success in the battle on the boards. Florida outrebounded Geor gia 38-30, including a 22-6 advantage on the offensive glass. However, the Gators managed only eight second-chance points, which tied the Bulldogs total on 16 fewer opportunities. THE TOM GREEN SHOWFlorida running back Jeff senses. Demps, who had pro football aspirations just two months ago, announced Thursday he has decided to put those lifelong dreams on the backburner and pursue a career in track. Back in November, just days before Thanksgiving, Demps was asked by reporters about his future beyond UF. If youre selected in the NFL Draft, Yeah, I mean coming up, like the Olympics, it wasnt there. I was always a football guy that watched football, and when I started running in high school, I started to look into track. I havent planned on it. All of my focus is on football. Do you track in the Im not sure. Probably not. Would Yeah. Do you really intend to stick by what you said as a freshman, that lying about that. So your dream is the NFL, not the Yeah, I was always a football But sometime between then and Thursday, Demps changed his tune and he couldnt have made a better decision. While Demps was good at football, and would have undoubtedly signed with an NFL team, his potential in track far exceeds what he had on the gridiron. Demps was always fast, and he took advantage ing past would-be defenders en route to 2,470 career rushing yards (eighth in school history) and 23 touchdowns in his four seasons. However, during his college career, Demps never registered 100 carries in a season and had trouble staying healthy during his junior and senior campaigns. Both of those brought into question his For all his hesitation, Demps ultimately made right choiceseeSEE TOM, Page AGE 15see SEE W-HOOPPS, Page AGE 15see SEE HOOPPS, Page AGE 16 Tom Greentwitter: @tomas_verde There are things that we run for Young to get him touches.Billy DonovanUF coachAllen

FRIDAY, JANUARY 13, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 15 durability and whether or not his 5-foot-7, 191-pound frame could withstand the wear and tear of an NFL season. On the track, Demps is a world-class sprinter not just an undersized football player who can outrun defenders. He has run multiple sub-10-second times in the 100-meter sprint and won an NCAA title back in March all while running at a bulked up football weight. With his focus shifted to track, Demps will undoubtedly shed 10-15 pounds. When that happens, he can be scary-fast and become a legitimate medal threat at the summer games, should he qualify at the U.S. Olympic trials in late June. Because his ceiling is higher on the track, Demps bank acthe endorsements that can come from that career than one in the NFL. Demps decision to pursue track also makes sense for his well-being in the long run. In the shelf life and take a lot of pounding, bringing the possibility of brain damage later in life. the sense knocked out of him during his four years on the gridiron; he showed as much with Thursdays decision.

16, ALLIGATOR FRIDAY, JANUARY 13, 2012 Alligator File PhotoFlorida plans to utilize more freshmen early this season, and juniors Ashane Dickerson (left) and Marissa King have taken on leadership roles. Youngs scoring pivotal in quality wins against Arizona, FSUthe ball inside, Boynton said. You cant stare down the post. They did a great job trying to deny passes and we gotta do a better job at cutting back-door. Even with all the struggles distributing from the perimeter, Donovan said the ability to get post scoring also relies on Young battling harder. Though he touched the ball 23 times against against Tennessee, most of the time Young was too far away from the basket to be a threat. That is something that he has to get better at, Donovan said. We can win when he is consistently shut down because you have to defend and rebound. If they do try and shut him down, there is always going to be something else open. While the two strongest victories on Floridas resume Arizona on Dec. 7 and Florida State on Dec. 22 came at home and included Young scoring 15 or more points on a combined 22 shots, the same conviction to getting him the ball hasnt been seen away from the OConnell Center. In the Gators four road losses, Young has seen that production tail off, only breaking 10 attempts Ohio State. One thing that I would say about our team, that I really like, is that everything we are asking them to try and do, they are trying to do, Donovan said. They recognize that Young is a force inside and there needs to be a balance. Contact John Boothe at jboothe@ alligator.org. HOOpPS, from page 14 LANDON WATNICKAlligator Writer The Gators are excited for their home opener tonight against Illinois-Chicago, but coach Rhonda Faehn is looking ahead. Instead of having her top gymnasts exhaust themselves as all-around competitors every weekend, Faehn said she will hold back some of her One thing were really trying to focus on is not getting caught up in whats going to happen right now, she said. We have to look at what our goal is for the long-run of the season. Of course, every competition that we go out and compete in, we want to win. Pacing was an issue for UF throughout last season. After peaking at the end of February, then-No. at the Southeastern Conference Championships to eventual 2011 national title winner Alabama. At Session II of NCAA Gymnastics Championplaced seventh, missing out on a spot in the NCAA We were so strong throughout the end of February, and it was a little bit hard to hold on physically to the end of the season, Faehn said. Were working on making sure we start very slow this season and pace ourselves and continue to get better and build up. So when No. 3 Florida (1-0) takes on UIC (1-0) in the OConnell Center tonight at 7, Faehn said her freshmen will get many opportunities to compete while the upperclassmen rest. Faehn said its challenging to hold back her more experienced gymnasts, but some are embracing leadership roles. Although they are only juniors, All-Americans Ashane Dickerson and Marissa King have become role models for the freshmen gymnasts and have gradually gained their trust and respect. Ive really tried to step up to that position through just giving the girls advice, said King, who won 2011 NCAA Vault title. Dickerson, on the other hand, has taken a differ ent approach to leading the youngsters. Im more like the person who leads by example, Dickerson said. Marissas the outgoing per son and shes more talkative than I am. Shes the vocal leader. While Dickerson and King are rallying the troops, Faehn is focused on the Gators long-term durability. (We have to) make sure that we have everyone at the end of the season at their best freshness, their best health, Faehn said. The regular season isnt as important as the end of the season. Injury update: Florida will likely be without one of its key contributors tonight. Sophomore Mackenzie Caquatto is out with camp for the U.S. world championships team back in September, although she is working on balance beam and uneven bars routines in practice. Faehn said last Friday that Caquatto would return to the bars lineup in a couple of weeks, and to beam in about four-to-six weeks. Gators easing into start of season UF Gymnastics Donovan
