ALEXANDER KLAUSNERAlligator Contributing WriterFour restaurants that are popular with UF students are among the city restaurants that have been hit with health-code violations including some that resulted from an inspection as recent as Friday. The restaurants included 101 Cantina, Boca Fiesta, Designer Greens and Copper Monkey. No restaurants required shutdowns, and most restaurants had violations that stemmed from foodtemperature violations, according to records from the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation. In a health inspectors report from Nov. 15, 101 Cantina had 14 violations ranging from having an open beverage on a table where food is prepared to the dish area. The inspector noted there was food residue built up on a cookline reach-in cooler. The report also stated fajita chicken cooked more than a week prior hadnt been thrown away. The food was tossed during the inspection. The restaurant had also installed carpeting in a dry storage area and had not cooled cooked black beans from 135 degrees to the state-required 41 degrees Fahrenheit within six hours. The restaurant has included a change in management as part of its cleanup approach. New manager Josh Lowenstein said Tuesday he wasnt able to speak about the violations because he wasnt working there at the time. However, he said, he plans to hold the restaurant to higher standards. Part of that, he said, includes improving quality food and working environment. buzzing around the dishwashing station, he said his plan is to emphasize cleanliness, which includes having employees scrub the kitchen when business is slow.

Canyons School District Superintendent David S. Doty says the selection of Chargers as mascot was driven by the desire for originality, despite a poll of some future students that showed 26 percent in favor of using the cougar. At least three Utah schools, including Brigham Young University, use cougar as a mascot. Doty says public comments but he also notes that some see the word cougar as carrying a negative double entendre. The term cougar in popular culture can refer to women in their 40s who have sex with younger men. THE ASSOCIATED PRESSIllinois man didnt know hed shot nail into his brain ORLAND PARK, Ill.

MONDAY, JANUARY 23, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 5 HE WAS A LOCAL SWIM COACH. KELLY PRICEAlligator WriterIn a scene that seemed to be straight from Dateline: To Catch a Predator, a former youth-league swim coach was arrested in connection with a child sex predator sting. Authorities said Bryan Woodward, of Gainesville, drove 124 miles to have sex with a 14-year-old he met in an online chat room. Woodward, 29, was arrested in Osceola County on Jan. 9 on counts of traveling to seduce a child to commit sex acts and using a computer to solicit sex with a child, authorities said. He told police he was a head swim coach at Gator Swim Club, a division of Swim America that practices at the OConnell Center. Most of the swimmers he coached were under 18. Woodward was one of 40 suspects ar rested as a part of Operation Red Cheeks, according to the Osceola County Sher the sting operation were a professional golfer, an eighth-grade teacher, a retired Georgia beekeeper and eight students, including one who is in high school. vit, Woodward chatted and exchanged photos online with an undercover detective who he thought was a 14-year-old. How do I know ur not a cop or something, he said to the detective via chat. I could show up and the cops could be waiting for me. He arrived at the neighborhood where the undercover house was located and drove around before authorities arrested him. He had purchased M&Ms on his way for the child, authorities said. Linzi Sheppard, a coach who worked with Gator Swim, said she was shocked by the news. I would have never expected this, said Sheppard, 22. Sheppard remembered Woodward as an always-professional colleague and a remarkable coach. They exchanged small talk often because they shared the pool deck most afternoons from June until about December. My impression of him was that he as caring about the swimmers and everything, she said. I would just notice he would push them and want them to do the best that they could while they were at practice. Clearly there was no [suspicion], anything that I would recognize. Woodward was released Wednesday evening on $11,500 bond, authorities said.Man arrested in child sex stingAROUND Ga AINESVILLE JULIA GLUMAlligator WriterA 10-foot-tall cardboard skyscraper puppet plastered with corporation logos pumped its huge arms over a chanting crowd at the Alachua County Courthouse on Friday. The puppet, carried by four members of Occupy Gainesville, symbolized what the protesters wanted to change. They had marched to the courthouse as part of Move to Amends Occupy the Courts event, calling for an amendment to reverse the 2010 U.S. Supreme Court decision that allows corporations to donate unlimited amounts of money to politicians. We want to restore personhood to the Zot Lynn Szurgot. At Fridays event, Bo Diddley Community Plaza was crammed with people of all ages. After a skit, songs, poetry and speeches, the events honored guest, best-selling author Cornel West, took the stage. Szurgot said West had planned to be at the Move to Amend protest at the Supreme Court in Washington, D.C. But when he found out hed be in Gainesville that night on an antipoverty tour with talk show host Tavis Smiley, he contacted Occupy Gainesville. I wouldnt want to be in any other place but Gainesville, Fla., today, West said. He was arrested in October for demonstrating on the steps of the U.S. Supreme Court with Occupy D.C., according to Politico. In his speech in Gainesville, West mentioned the poison at work in these corporations and called poverty in the U.S. an ethical abomination. Occupy is so crucial. Move to Amend is so crucial, he said. There is deep, unapologetic love at the core of what were trying to do. The end of his speech was met with a standing ovation. Its like plugging into a power socket when he speaks, said John Berger, 66, a member of Occupy Gainesville. At about 2:50 p.m., West led the crowd on its three-block march to the courthouse. Dogs, children and adults walked in a streets. Someone drummed a beat, and protesters repeated chants such as, The people united will never be defeated. West sang along enthusiastically, dancing with the crowd. When they reached the courthouse, he took pictures, signed autographs and chanted for about 20 minutes. At about 3:15 p.m., West left by car, but many of the protesters remained in awe of the event. It was empowering to know that so many people have one voice and one message, said Claudia Youakim, 32.Author speaks to Occupiers Occupy is so crucial. Move to Amend is so crucial.

I have no question as to the genuine sincer ity of their compassion for the impoverished. eliminate poverty in America, I could not help but think how much poorer the 99 percent would become. Their support of a wealth tax, higher taxes on investment income and a livcountrys problems when in fact this menu of policy choices would do much to run America into the ground. I asked West what he would do to change the U.S. tax code, to which he replied you got to go where the money is Im in favor of a wealth tax. This would amount to taking a set percent of a persons net worth each year. A guest on National Public Radio recently suggested 3 percent. When 20 percent of Americans have 85 percent of the nations net worth, I can see how a well-meaning progressive would However, imagine we live in a world where your parents have to pay 3 percent of all their savings each year. I bet a lot more money would be spent on consumption and people wouldnt bother saving, as the interest payments from treasury bonds now would not even cover the tax on wealth. The balance between consumption and savings would be shifting so rapidly in favor of the here and now that there would be no capital left over to actually get people out of poverty, rather than just give them food stamps and call it a day. The reason the poor can get jobs (and, on a related note, people who invest money and generate economic growth. If a drastic investment tax were coupled with a wealth tax, the or otherwise shelter wealth while the millions of Americans who would lose their jobs might have some trouble making house payments. In the short run, I have no doubt that it would look like poverty is being eliminated. The working poor would have more money to spend while investors still have their capital tied up and unavailable for better opportunities elsewhere. However, money migrates gradually to where it can earn the best return. If a billionaire goes from paying $100 million in taxes per year to $200 million per year and 1,000 people lose their jobs in the process, how is this progressive? Those demanding living wages for the poor would be happy to know that the vast majority of the impoverished make higher than the minimum wage. If companies are forced to pay living wages, todays level of outsourcing will look like a joke compared to all the new factories that would spring up overseas. Living wages would likely only be great for the suburban teens working at West and Smiley said poverty is the greatest challenge of our time. If this is true, they should trust the only historical system that has led to widespread prosperity in human history, which is capitalism. The great thing about it is that even where besides under their mattress, which creates loanable funds or capital for the creation of jobs. When we try and raise investment taxes or create new taxes entirely, it encourages strange behavior that often does little to help the least of these. Let us not forget that 200 million Chinese were lifted from poverty by free-market capitalism. If West and Smileys assertion that one in two Americans is in or near poverty is true, I suspect that a move to a true free-market system can do it just as well.

Bad FormSloppy reporting mars Paternos deathAfter an already tough few months for Pennsylvania State University, the community received some more bad news Sunday. Former head coach of Penn States football team Joe Paterno passed away at the age of 85. But in a terrible display of reporting gone wrong, news of Paternos death broke prematurely due to a misinformed tweet by a blogger, which was picked up by major online The blogger who posted the false tweet was managing editor of Onwardstate.com, Devon Edwards. Onwardstate.com Large Davis Shaver as a student-run community news website. According to Shaver, two of the blogs writers received news of an email, supposedly sent by a high-ranking athpassed. When Edwards received news of this email from one CBSSports.com also reported the news after the tweet was posted. Minutes later, Joe Paternos son Scott refuted the information, saying his father was still alive but in serious condition. Over the last few years, blogs have become a tour de force blogs are often cited as legitimate sources in news reports. While some blogs simply provide commentary on the news of the day, others create original content by doing their own reporting and news-gathering. This trend in the melding of traditional and online media, while providing a new interactive environment between the media and the audience, can also have some serious consequences for the integrity of the news. First, the blog should and has taken responsibility for their false reports on the situation. Edwards, the managing editor, immediately resigned after learning he had posted the incorrect information. Unfortunately, the blog was on the bad end of a horrible hoax, but the bloggers still showed a great deal of accountability. Whats even more troubling about this issue is the complete lack of journalistic integrity of the mainstream websites who jumped on the story. The reporters at CBSSports. com should have realized this was a delicate issue and triple-checked the tweet before they published the story. As a professional news outlet that reaches millions of people, one would have thought their standards for news-gathering were top-notch. This oversight was just pure laziness. While blogs have a lot to offer the media and their audiences, they are still not held to the same standards that professional news organizations have to uphold. Well, at least we thought they do.

MONDAY, JANUARY 23, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 7 Neighbors can be as annoying as cheapskates who sneak into churches to do laundry rather than go to a laundromat. I thought Id escaped the worst when I moved out of the dorms excuse me, residence halls and into my apartment, but little did I know the horrors of off-campus neighbors. Upon moving in, I had my eardrums handed to me. Next door lived a guy who bumped the Jersey Shore soundtrack from 10 a.m. to 2 a.m. Above me lived a rambunctious Latina step team. bumping club tunes once the semester starts, I said to myself, and just because their wireless network is named Mujerrrrrrr! doesnt mean theyll make bad neighbors. Then I realized I was talking to myself and promptly told myself to shut up. As fall approached and the air chilled, so too did my attitude. The club music continued, starting precisely when the clock struck 10 a.m. The step routine practices became louder and more elaborate. Then one of the chicas began having loud sex. I hated the noise all that noise, noise, noise! Then I got an idea. An awful idea. A wonderful, awful idea! What I present to you now is that idea, which is now my proven three-step method for dealing with annoying neighbors. I call it Fierce Aural Punishment, or FAP for short. Step one: diplomacy. Approach your neighbors when theyre making too much noise and ask them to stop. They may just be oblivious. During one evening practice of the Chonga line, my roommate Patrick went upstairs and confronted them. Turns out they didnt speak much English, so Patrick, who is from Miami, used his limited Spanish to say, Please silence your feet. Since that time, no issues. The Jersey Boar and the loud sex, however, still remained. Step two: aural alerts. Use opportune music to manipulate neighbors into shutting up. No one wants to tell a couple their sex is too loud. Thats why after one of the loud boinking sessions I blasted Lonely Islands I Just Had Sex to send a clear message. The club guy took a little more creativity. His club tunes were all in 4/4 time, so I found some awful dubstep on Soundcloud in 6/8 time, because that would jam his bass line and make a pile of awful sound. (Added plus: It sampled some Yoko Ono vocals.) I waited one morning for 10 a.m. to arrive, then blasted the dubstep the second his music started. He stopped. I stopped. He started again. I started again. Ive yet to hear a club tune since. a BYOB party bring your own broom. I have not had to do this, but I heard about it from my friend Darien. To throw one, call your friends and tell them to bring brooms over to your place. Acquire a Costco-sized pack of earplugs. Once your friends arrive, pass out the earplugs, blast Lil Mamas Lip Gloss on loop, and smack the ceiling with your brooms along to the beat. Disclaimer: Before proceeding with my plan (FAP-ing), make sure that all your neighbors annoying behavior is legal. If theyre making enough noise to be heard from the street, then report them to the police. Properly FAP-ing a neighbor whos making an illegal amount of noise requires making the When dealing with crazy, dont feel obligated to stay sane and rational. You cannot reason with crazy. You can only manipulate crazy by confronting it with similar crazy. Dont be tempted to care about your neighbors because you already know they dont care about you. FAP-ing works. Just do it. Chip Skambis is an English and telecommunication junior at UF. His column appears on Mondays. Dealing with obnoxious neighbors as simple as F-A-PColumn Chip Skambisopinions@alligator.org On Thursday it was announced that Rupert Murdoch and News International have agreed to pay cash to the dozens of people including Jude Law and Danii Minogue who have been harassed and hacked by the titles in his corporation. News Corp was famously thrown for a loop last summer. Once allegations of illegal activity arose, all the respect for the conglomerate seemed to dissipate. Surprisingly, Hugh Grant was one of the and interviewing a reporter, where he caught him admitting that they hack phones, delete voicemails and set up illegal activity in order to get the scoop. Countless American celebrities complain about the paparazzis presence on their front lawns. British celebs, however, such as Sienna Miller and Jude Law have claimed British media is far worse. When News Corp was indicted by Parliament, salacious claims came to light about its unethical practices. Widows of the Iraq war had their phones bugged while some reporters could listen in on Prince William and Prince Harrys personal cellphones. Perhaps the worst claim was that of Milly Dowler, a 13-year-old girl who was abducted and murdered in 2002. Reporters from News of the World apparently hacked into Dowlers phone after her disappearance and deleted voicemails, causing police and her family to think she was still alive. It seems as if the 21st century has truly become an age of shock where anything will sell, and because of that, newspapers are willing to put in the extra illegal mile in order to obtain the best stories. Gone are the days where some modicum of privacy can be expected. Because of this all-or-nothing approach, out seeing the girl sprawled across the tabloids. When most of us see the new Leonardo we wonder which Victorias Secret model he is dating. Tabloid life and screen life have meshed together so inexplicably that it seems impossible to untangle. And because of that, the future of media is bound to look a little bleak. Sheridan Watson is a columnist for the Daily Trojan at the University of Southern California. Celebrities deserve more privacy than some media allowUWireSheridan WatsonUWire

8, ALLIGATOR MONDAY, JANUARY 23, 2012 MONDAY FEATURE ELECTIONS ARE IN NOVEMBER. AYANA STEWARTAlligator Contributing WriterGainesville realtor Aaron Bosshardt announced Tuesday he plans to run for the Florida House of Representatives. Bosshardt, a Democrat, hopes to represent District 22, which includes parts of Alachua and Marion counties. Elections are in November. Republican Keith Perry currently holds the seat. I decided to run for the Florida House because I felt that we needed principled leadership and reasonable people in office that are able to address Floridas future, Bosshardt said. Bosshardt is the president of Bosshardt Property Management LLC and is the Chief Operating Officer of Bosshardt Realty Services LLC. He said he believes his skills as a small business owner will help him at the state level. Bosshardt began his real estate career in his late teens, said Jason Roth, spokesman for Bosshardts campaign. Bosshardt said he currently focuses on property management and managing real estate agents. He said he believes his experience as a realtor will help him relate to citizens. Bosshardt said voters need to keep an eye on their state legislators, and he plans to stay accountable to his constituents. What [students] dont need to do is let people in Tallahassee just look busy and make sure that theyre voting and holding their representatives accountable, he said.Gainesville realtor to run for state House seat JULIA GLUM Alligator Writerachael Pendletons alarm fast so shes never late. She plans her busy life down to the minute. But that doesnt soften the 5 a.m. wake-up call for ROTC physical training. Its still dark outside, but Pendleton gets out of bed quickly. She throws on her gray Army shirt and high-waisted black shorts. She laces up her running shoes. A quick swipe of concealer hides the dark circles under her eyes from lack of sleep. A touch of mascara waterproof, so it wont run when she sweats. Off she goes. But Pendleton doesnt complain. Its all part of the plan. The 21-year-old UF junior is completing two years of ROTC training in one. Shes studying to help soldiers suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder. She plans to contract, or commit, to serve for a designated amount of time with the Army. On top of that, Pendleton works about 15 hours a week at the Gator Wesley Foundation and takes 17 credit hours of class. Until last semester, she was a UF psychology major intending to be a clinical psychologist. When a friend recommended nursing, Pendleton thought the suggestion was funny and Despite her reservations, Pendleton went to see her advisers. She wanted to have as much one-on-one time with patients as possible. To her surprise, advisers said her goals aligned with those of a psychiatric nurse practitioner, something shed never considered before. As a psychiatric nurse, she could prescribe medications, develop treatment plans and interact with patients daily. Pendleton knew she wanted to work with PTSD victims because she could make a difference. So many veterans have PTSD that didnt get the help they needed, Pendleton said. It ruins their lives and the connection with their families. The number of soldiers returning from combat is becoming so large that soon there wont be enough nurses to treat them. The shortage, according to a report by the American Association of State Colleges and Universities, could reach 800,000 by 2020. veterans returning from Afghanistan or Iraq reports symptoms of PTSD or major depression, according to a 2008 study from the RAND Corp. About half of those 300,000 people have sought treatment. Pendleton wants to help. When some soldiers return, they have nightmares and constantly relive the war they thought they left behind. You see a lot of soldiers come home, and they might come home in one piece, Pendleton said. But if theyre not the same person, theres still a problem. She had a choice: enter the Army after completing nursing and graduate school or join UFs ROTC program, which allows students to train in military sciences for four years and serve after graduation. In return, the Army will help fund her education. ROTC was the best choice, Pendleton said. They understand that Im a student right now and work with me. After discussing her options Lt. Col. Bob Quint, she joined ROTC last fall. Pendleton takes military science classes, attends 6 a.m. physical training sessions and goes to a weekly leadership lab. She learns small-unit tactics as part of the Raiders, which trains members to think quickly in dire situations. She runs, sprints and does bear crawls and push-ups. She now knows how to throw a grenade, how to walk in formation and how to call for emergency evacuation of a casualty on the In August, it took Pendleton 21 minutes to run two miles. Now, it takes her 16 minutes, 59 seconds. Pendleton adjusted well to the ROTC program, Quint said. She loves it, he said. I see it in her eyes. It is a lot of work, even now, Pendleton said. But I dont mind it because I know that its working toward something that I know Ill love doing Pendleton expects to serve at least eight years in the Army. The satisfaction of taking care of soldiers and their families attracts a special kind of nurse, Quint said, adding that her compassion, perseverance and positive attitude will make her an outstanding nurse. Rachael is a Hooah kind of person, Quint said, using an Army term that often describes a dedicated soldier. Lets-rock-n-roll-and-getit-goin is Rachael Pendleton. Bosshardt Alex Catalano / Alligator StaffRachael Pendleton, 21, is completing two years of ROTC training in one so she can join the Army as a psychiatric nurse practitioner.

KYLE EVERSAlligator Writer While Hunter Joyer might be the Florida football teams future at the fullback position, on Sunday the freshman put his throwing skills on display. In his debut for the UF mens indoor track put with a throw of 14.67m/48-01.75 at the Gator Invite. Joyer, who won state championships at Tampa Catholic High his junior and senior year in the shot put, said that competing in track will help improve his strength and allaround athleticism. Track kind of helps out with football with explosion, Joyer said. They are really not too far apart. The invitational, which was held in the OConnell Center, showcased 26 men and 13 women from Florida and a host of athletes from other in-state schools like FAU, UNF, UCF, Florida A&M and Bethune-Cookman. Though a limited number of UF upperclassmen competed in their respective events, the meets main purpose was to acclimate some of the younger athletes, like Joyer, to the atmosphere of NCAA-sanctioned events. I just got settled in this year and Im just trying to get a feel for everything, Joyer said. Next year I think I can really cut loose. the competition was junior thrower Jeremy Postin, who set a personal best and a new school record in the mens weight throw with a distance of 21.31m/69-11.0. Overall, the No. 1 mens team and unranked women notched six individual wins, including three on throwing events, at the single-day meet. I think [Sunday] begins with Jeremy, coach Mike Holloway said. Talking with coach (Steve) Lemke, we kind of expected (that performance). Coach Lemke thinks theres even more in the tank. Postins success in the weight throw would be matched in the mens shot put by teammate Stipe Zunic. A sophomore from Zadar, Croatia, Zunic sent his winning toss On the womens side, Keely Medeiros also won a shot put title in the meet. Fellow senior Fidela James followed closely behind with a second-place toss, also taking a victory in the weight throw behind a toss of 19.11m/62-8.50. The big thing for me is I want to see a continual effort and keep building on what weve done so far, Holloway said. If you look at what weve done every year in the past, we get just a little bit better each week. Because of that, we always have great perfor mances at conference and nationals and we dont want to change that at all. A UF release contributed to this report.

16, ALLIGATOR MONDAY, JANUARY 23, 2012 RECRUITING KELLY PRICEAlligator Writer Will Muschamp doesnt come off as a warm and fuzzy guy. So defensive end Bryan Cox, Jr., was a bit taken aback when the Flor ida head coach embraced him after the three-star recruit announced his commitment before a dinner Satur day night. He just like gave me a really big hug and said Welcome to the family, Cox said. It felt great I never got a hug like that before in my life. It was just great to know that he was excited and I was excited. Cox, who brings Muschamps Miami, North Carolina, Michigan State, Louisville and others. I just made my own choice, he said. I just get a really good vibe from (the coaching staff).... I get great vibes from the Gator Nation. All the fans and the players are great. Cox joins a 2012 class stacked on ments and one already signed. Were going to have a lot more options with what coach can do with us and different packages and whatnot, he said. Its going to be interesting. The coaching staff told Cox he will start off at the Buck linebacker position with a switch to defensive end possible if he bulks up. Cox gave his oral commitment during a big weekend for recruiting star prospects, seven uncommitted athletes and four oral commits. The Gators also picked up a prospect in an area of need in 2013 running back Adam Lane from Winter Haven, who committed on The 5-foot-7, 207-pound back is the Also, uncommitted prospect Alex McCalister, a three-star end from Clemmons, N.C., will choose between Florida, Georgia Tech and North Carolina on Monday. Hes really lengthy and a rangey kind of guy, Cox said of McCalister. Put some weight on him and hell be a really good player. According to Cox, McCalister had a good time in Gainesville and has the Gators at the top of his board. I think he enjoyed it really well, Cox said. He was one of the guys I went out with. We had a good time. McCalister had been set to visit last weekend, but had to cancel due to an illness in his family. He moved his decision date from last week to this Monday. Florida has made a late push for McCalister, another promising defensive prospect noted for his ability to disrupt defenses and pursuit of the ball carrier. McCalister has also been told by the Florida coaching staff that he would play at the Buck linebacker position in Gainesville. end included oral commits Matt Jones, Colin Thompson, JaFar Mann and Brian Poole. Five-star wide receiver Stefon and FSU oral commit Dante Fowler, Gainesville this weekend. Three-star quarterback Skyler Mornhinweg, who is orally committed to Penn State, also visited. Since the hiring of new offensive coordinator Brent Pease, Diggs and Agholor seem to be leaning toward Florida, but both will most likely make decisions on or around Signing Day on Feb. 1. Diggs posted on Twitter Satur day night: I love it. Love the environment and just the thought of being a gator. Oral commitments are nonbinding until a national letter of intent is signed on or after National Signing Day on Feb. 1.Gators pick up two commitments during busy weekend UF SWEPT DOUBLES, WON 6-1.

The restaurants included 101 Cantina, Boca Fiesta, Designer Greens and Copper Monkey. No restaurants required shutdowns, and most restaurants had violations that stemmed from foodtemperature violations, according to records from the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation. In a health inspectors report from Nov. 15, 101 Cantina had 14 violations ranging from having an open beverage on a table where food is prepared to the dish area. The inspector noted there was food residue built up on a cookline reach-in cooler. The report also stated fajita chicken cooked more than a week prior hadnt been thrown away. The food was tossed during the inspection. The restaurant had also installed carpeting in a dry storage area and had not cooled cooked black beans from 135 degrees to the state-required 41 degrees Fahrenheit within six hours. The restaurant has included a change in management as part of its cleanup approach. New manager Josh Lowenstein said Tuesday he wasnt able to speak about the violations because he wasnt working there at the time. However, he said, he plans to hold the restaurant to higher standards. Part of that, he said, includes improving quality food and working environment. buzzing around the dishwashing station, he said his plan is to emphasize cleanliness, which includes having employees scrub the kitchen when business is slow.

Canyons School District Superintendent David S. Doty says the selection of Chargers as mascot was driven by the desire for originality, despite a poll of some future students that showed 26 percent in favor of using the cougar. At least three Utah schools, including Brigham Young University, use cougar as a mascot. Doty says public comments but he also notes that some see the word cougar as carrying a negative double entendre. The term cougar in popular culture can refer to women in their 40s who have sex with younger men. THE ASSOCIATED PRESSIllinois man didnt know hed shot nail into his brain ORLAND PARK, Ill.

MONDAY, JANUARY 23, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 5 HE WAS A LOCAL SWIM COACH. KELLY PRICEAlligator WriterIn a scene that seemed to be straight from Dateline: To Catch a Predator, a former youth-league swim coach was arrested in connection with a child sex predator sting. Authorities said Bryan Woodward, of Gainesville, drove 124 miles to have sex with a 14-year-old he met in an online chat room. Woodward, 29, was arrested in Osceola County on Jan. 9 on counts of traveling to seduce a child to commit sex acts and using a computer to solicit sex with a child, authorities said. He told police he was a head swim coach at Gator Swim Club, a division of Swim America that practices at the OConnell Center. Most of the swimmers he coached were under 18. Woodward was one of 40 suspects ar rested as a part of Operation Red Cheeks, according to the Osceola County Sher the sting operation were a professional golfer, an eighth-grade teacher, a retired Georgia beekeeper and eight students, including one who is in high school. vit, Woodward chatted and exchanged photos online with an undercover detective who he thought was a 14-year-old. How do I know ur not a cop or something, he said to the detective via chat. I could show up and the cops could be waiting for me. He arrived at the neighborhood where the undercover house was located and drove around before authorities arrested him. He had purchased M&Ms on his way for the child, authorities said. Linzi Sheppard, a coach who worked with Gator Swim, said she was shocked by the news. I would have never expected this, said Sheppard, 22. Sheppard remembered Woodward as an always-professional colleague and a remarkable coach. They exchanged small talk often because they shared the pool deck most afternoons from June until about December. My impression of him was that he as caring about the swimmers and everything, she said. I would just notice he would push them and want them to do the best that they could while they were at practice. Clearly there was no [suspicion], anything that I would recognize. Woodward was released Wednesday evening on $11,500 bond, authorities said.Man arrested in child sex stingAROUND G AINESVILLE JULIA GLUMAlligator WriterA 10-foot-tall cardboard skyscraper puppet plastered with corporation logos pumped its huge arms over a chanting crowd at the Alachua County Courthouse on Friday. The puppet, carried by four members of Occupy Gainesville, symbolized what the protesters wanted to change. They had marched to the courthouse as part of Move to Amends Occupy the Courts event, calling for an amendment to reverse the 2010 U.S. Supreme Court decision that allows corporations to donate unlimited amounts of money to politicians. We want to restore personhood to the Zot Lynn Szurgot. At Fridays event, Bo Diddley Community Plaza was crammed with people of all ages. After a skit, songs, poetry and speeches, the events honored guest, best-selling author Cornel West, took the stage. Szurgot said West had planned to be at the Move to Amend protest at the Supreme Court in Washington, D.C. But when he found out hed be in Gainesville that night on an antipoverty tour with talk show host Tavis Smiley, he contacted Occupy Gainesville. I wouldnt want to be in any other place but Gainesville, Fla., today, West said. He was arrested in October for demonstrating on the steps of the U.S. Supreme Court with Occupy D.C., according to Politico. In his speech in Gainesville, West mentioned the poison at work in these corporations and called poverty in the U.S. an ethical abomination. Occupy is so crucial. Move to Amend is so crucial, he said. There is deep, unapologetic love at the core of what were trying to do. The end of his speech was met with a standing ovation. Its like plugging into a power socket when he speaks, said John Berger, 66, a member of Occupy Gainesville. At about 2:50 p.m., West led the crowd on its three-block march to the courthouse. Dogs, children and adults walked in a streets. Someone drummed a beat, and protesters repeated chants such as, The people united will never be defeated. West sang along enthusiastically, dancing with the crowd. When they reached the courthouse, he took pictures, signed autographs and chanted for about 20 minutes. At about 3:15 p.m., West left by car, but many of the protesters remained in awe of the event. It was empowering to know that so many people have one voice and one message, said Claudia Youakim, 32.Author speaks to Occupiers Occupy is so crucial. Move to Amend is so crucial.

I have no question as to the genuine sincer ity of their compassion for the impoverished. eliminate poverty in America, I could not help but think how much poorer the 99 percent would become. Their support of a wealth tax, higher taxes on investment income and a livcountrys problems when in fact this menu of policy choices would do much to run America into the ground. I asked West what he would do to change the U.S. tax code, to which he replied you got to go where the money is Im in favor of a wealth tax. This would amount to taking a set percent of a persons net worth each year. A guest on National Public Radio recently suggested 3 percent. When 20 percent of Americans have 85 percent of the nations net worth, I can see how a well-meaning progressive would However, imagine we live in a world where your parents have to pay 3 percent of all their savings each year. I bet a lot more money would be spent on consumption and people wouldnt bother saving, as the interest payments from treasury bonds now would not even cover the tax on wealth. The balance between consumption and savings would be shifting so rapidly in favor of the here and now that there would be no capital left over to actually get people out of poverty, rather than just give them food stamps and call it a day. The reason the poor can get jobs (and, on a related note, people who invest money and generate economic growth. If a drastic investment tax were coupled with a wealth tax, the or otherwise shelter wealth while the millions of Americans who would lose their jobs might have some trouble making house payments. In the short run, I have no doubt that it would look like poverty is being eliminated. The working poor would have more money to spend while investors still have their capital tied up and unavailable for better opportunities elsewhere. However, money migrates gradually to where it can earn the best return. If a billionaire goes from paying $100 million in taxes per year to $200 million per year and 1,000 people lose their jobs in the process, how is this progressive? Those demanding living wages for the poor would be happy to know that the vast majority of the impoverished make higher than the minimum wage. If companies are forced to pay living wages, todays level of outsourcing will look like a joke compared to all the new factories that would spring up overseas. Living wages would likely only be great for the suburban teens working at West and Smiley said poverty is the greatest challenge of our time. If this is true, they should trust the only historical system that has led to widespread prosperity in human history, which is capitalism. The great thing about it is that even where besides under their mattress, which creates loanable funds or capital for the creation of jobs. When we try and raise investment taxes or create new taxes entirely, it encourages strange behavior that often does little to help the least of these. Let us not forget that 200 million Chinese were lifted from poverty by free-market capitalism. If West and Smileys assertion that one in two Americans is in or near poverty is true, I suspect that a move to a true free-market system can do it just as well.

Bad FormSloppy reporting mars Paternos deathAfter an already tough few months for Pennsylvania State University, the community received some more bad news Sunday. Former head coach of Penn States football team Joe Paterno passed away at the age of 85. But in a terrible display of reporting gone wrong, news of Paternos death broke prematurely due to a misinformed tweet by a blogger, which was picked up by major online The blogger who posted the false tweet was managing editor of Onwardstate.com, Devon Edwards. Onwardstate.com Large Davis Shaver as a student-run community news website. According to Shaver, two of the blogs writers received news of an email, supposedly sent by a high-ranking athpassed. When Edwards received news of this email from one CBSSports.com also reported the news after the tweet was posted. Minutes later, Joe Paternos son Scott refuted the information, saying his father was still alive but in serious condition. Over the last few years, blogs have become a tour de force blogs are often cited as legitimate sources in news reports. While some blogs simply provide commentary on the news of the day, others create original content by doing their own reporting and news-gathering. This trend in the melding of traditional and online media, while providing a new interactive environment between the media and the audience, can also have some serious consequences for the integrity of the news. First, the blog should and has taken responsibility for their false reports on the situation. Edwards, the managing editor, immediately resigned after learning he had posted the incor rect information. Unfortunately, the blog was on the bad end of a horrible hoax, but the bloggers still showed a great deal of accountability. Whats even more troubling about this issue is the complete lack of journalistic integrity of the mainstream websites who jumped on the story. The reporters at CBSSports. com should have realized this was a delicate issue and triple-checked the tweet before they published the story. As a professional news outlet that reaches millions of people, one would have thought their standards for news-gathering were top-notch. This oversight was just pure laziness. While blogs have a lot to offer the media and their audiences, they are still not held to the same standards that professional news organizations have to uphold. Well, at least we thought they do.

MONDAY, JANUARY 23, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 7 Neighbors can be as annoying as cheapskates who sneak into churches to do laundry rather than go to a laundromat. I thought Id escaped the worst when I moved out of the dorms excuse me, residence halls and into my apartment, but little did I know the horrors of off-campus neighbors. Upon moving in, I had my eardrums handed to me. Next door lived a guy who bumped the Jersey Shore soundtrack from 10 a.m. to 2 a.m. Above me lived a rambunctious Latina step team. bumping club tunes once the semester starts, I said to myself, and just because their wireless network is named Mujerrrrrrr! doesnt mean theyll make bad neighbors. Then I realized I was talking to myself and promptly told myself to shut up. As fall approached and the air chilled, so too did my attitude. The club music continued, starting precisely when the clock struck 10 a.m. The step routine practices became louder and more elaborate. Then one of the chicas began having loud sex. I hated the noise all that noise, noise, noise! Then I got an idea. An awful idea. A wonderful, awful idea! What I present to you now is that idea, which is now my proven three-step method for dealing with annoying neighbors. I call it Fierce Aural Punishment, or FAP for short. Step one: diplomacy. Approach your neighbors when theyre making too much noise and ask them to stop. They may just be oblivious. During one evening practice of the Chonga line, my roommate Patrick went upstairs and confronted them. Turns out they didnt speak much English, so Patrick, who is from Miami, used his limited Spanish to say, Please silence your feet. Since that time, no issues. The Jersey Boar and the loud sex, however, still remained. Step two: aural alerts. Use opportune music to manipulate neighbors into shutting up. No one wants to tell a couple their sex is too loud. Thats why after one of the loud boinking sessions I blasted Lonely Islands I Just Had Sex to send a clear message. The club guy took a little more creativity. His club tunes were all in 4/4 time, so I found some awful dubstep on Soundcloud in 6/8 time, because that would jam his bass line and make a pile of awful sound. (Added plus: It sampled some Yoko Ono vocals.) I waited one morning for 10 a.m. to arrive, then blasted the dubstep the second his music started. He stopped. I stopped. He started again. I started again. Ive yet to hear a club tune since. a BYOB party bring your own broom. I have not had to do this, but I heard about it from my friend Darien. To throw one, call your friends and tell them to bring brooms over to your place. Acquire a Costco-sized pack of earplugs. Once your friends arrive, pass out the earplugs, blast Lil Mamas Lip Gloss on loop, and smack the ceiling with your brooms along to the beat. Disclaimer: Before proceeding with my plan (FAP-ing), make sure that all your neighbors annoying behavior is legal. If theyre making enough noise to be heard from the street, then report them to the police. Properly FAP-ing a neighbor whos making an illegal amount of noise requires making the When dealing with crazy, dont feel obligated to stay sane and rational. You cannot reason with crazy. You can only manipulate crazy by confronting it with similar crazy. Dont be tempted to care about your neighbors because you already know they dont care about you. FAP-ing works. Just do it. Chip Skambis is an English and telecommunication junior at UF. His column appears on Mondays. Dealing with obnoxious neighbors as simple as F-A-PColumn Chip Skambisopinions@alligator.org On Thursday it was announced that Rupert Murdoch and News International have agreed to pay cash to the dozens of people including Jude Law and Danii Minogue who have been harassed and hacked by the titles in his corporation. News Corp was famously thrown for a loop last summer. Once allegations of illegal activity arose, all the respect for the conglomerate seemed to dissipate. Surprisingly, Hugh Grant was one of the and interviewing a reporter, where he caught him admitting that they hack phones, delete voicemails and set up illegal activity in order to get the scoop. Countless American celebrities complain about the paparazzis presence on their front lawns. British celebs, however, such as Sienna Miller and Jude Law have claimed British media is far worse. When News Corp was indicted by Parliament, salacious claims came to light about its unethical practices. Widows of the Iraq war had their phones bugged while some reporters could listen in on Prince William and Prince Harrys personal cellphones. Perhaps the worst claim was that of Milly Dowler, a 13-year-old girl who was abducted and murdered in 2002. Reporters from News of the World apparently hacked into Dowlers phone after her disappearance and deleted voicemails, causing police and her family to think she was still alive. It seems as if the 21st century has truly become an age of shock where anything will sell, and because of that, newspapers are willing to put in the extra illegal mile in order to obtain the best stories. Gone are the days where some modicum of privacy can be expected. Because of this all-or-nothing approach, out seeing the girl sprawled across the tabloids. When most of us see the new Leonardo we wonder which Victorias Secret model he is dating. Tabloid life and screen life have meshed together so inexplicably that it seems impossible to untangle.

Bosshardt, a Democrat, hopes to represent District 22, which includes parts of Alachua and Marion counties. Elections are in November. Republican Keith Perry currently holds the seat. I decided to run for the Florida House because I felt that we needed principled leadership and reasonable people in office that are able to address Floridas future, Bosshardt said. Bosshardt is the president of Bosshardt Property Management LLC and is the Chief Operating Officer of Bosshardt Realty Services LLC. He said he believes his skills as a small business owner will help him at the state level. Bosshardt began his real estate career in his late teens, said Jason Roth, spokesman for Bosshardts campaign. Bosshardt said he currently focuses on property management and managing real estate agents. He said he believes his experience as a realtor will help him relate to citizens. Bosshardt said voters need to keep an eye on their state legislators, and he plans to stay accountable to his constituents. What [students] dont need to do is let people in Tallahassee just look busy and make sure that theyre voting and holding their representatives accountable, he said.Gainesville realtor to run for state House seat JULIA GLUM Alligator Writerachael Pendletons alarm fast so shes never late. She plans her busy life down to the minute. But that doesnt soften the 5 a.m. wake-up call for ROTC physical training. Its still dark outside, but Pendleton gets out of bed quickly. She throws on her gray Army shirt and high-waisted black shorts. She laces up her running shoes. A quick swipe of concealer hides the dark circles under her eyes from lack of sleep. A touch of mascara waterproof, so it wont run when she sweats. Off she goes. But Pendleton doesnt complain. Its all part of the plan. The 21-year-old UF junior is completing two years of ROTC training in one. Shes studying to help soldiers suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder. She plans to contract, or commit, to serve for a designated amount of time with the Army. On top of that, Pendleton works about 15 hours a week at the Gator Wesley Foundation and takes 17 credit hours of class. Until last semester, she was a UF psychology major intending to be a clinical psychologist. When a friend recommended nursing, Pendleton thought the suggestion was funny and Despite her reservations, Pendleton went to see her advisers. She wanted to have as much one-on-one time with patients as possible. To her surprise, advisers said her goals aligned with those of a psychiatric nurse practitioner, something shed never considered before. As a psychiatric nurse, she could prescribe medications, develop treatment plans and interact with patients daily. Pendleton knew she wanted to work with PTSD victims because she could make a difference. So many veterans have PTSD that didnt get the help they needed, Pendleton said. It ruins their lives and the connection with their families. The number of soldiers returning from combat is becoming so large that soon there wont be enough nurses to treat them. The shortage, according to a report by the American Association of State Colleges and Universities, could reach 800,000 by 2020. veterans returning from Afghanistan or Iraq reports symptoms of PTSD or major depression, according to a 2008 study from the RAND Corp. About half of those 300,000 people have sought treatment. Pendleton wants to help. When some soldiers return, they have nightmares and constantly relive the war they thought they left behind. You see a lot of soldiers come home, and they might come home in one piece, Pendleton said. But if theyre not the same person, theres still a problem. She had a choice: enter the Army after completing nursing and graduate school or join UFs ROTC program, which allows students to train in military sciences for four years and serve after graduation. In return, the Army will help fund her education. ROTC was the best choice, Pendleton said. They understand that Im a student right now and work with me. After discussing her options Lt. Col. Bob Quint, she joined ROTC last fall. Pendleton takes military science classes, attends 6 a.m. physical training sessions and goes to a weekly leadership lab. She learns small-unit tactics as part of the Raiders, which trains members to think quickly in dire situations. She runs, sprints and does bear crawls and push-ups. She now knows how to throw a grenade, how to walk in formation and how to call for emergency evacuation of a casualty on the In August, it took Pendleton 21 minutes to run two miles. Now, it takes her 16 minutes, 59 seconds. Pendleton adjusted well to the ROTC program, Quint said. She loves it, he said. I see it in her eyes. It is a lot of work, even now, Pendleton said. But I dont mind it because I know that its working toward something that I know Ill love doing Pendleton expects to serve at least eight years in the Army. The satisfaction of taking care of soldiers and their families attracts a special kind of nurse, Quint said, adding that her compassion, perseverance and positive attitude will make her an outstanding nurse. Rachael is a Hooah kind of person, Quint said, using an Army term that often describes a dedicated soldier. Lets-rock-n-roll-and-getit-goin is Rachael Pendleton. Bosshardt Alex Catalano / Alligator StaffRachael Pendleton, 21, is completing two years of ROTC training in one so she can join the Army as a psychiatric nurse practitioner.

KYLE EVERSAlligator Writer While Hunter Joyer might be the Florida football teams future at the fullback position, on Sunday the freshman put his throwing skills on display. In his debut for the UF mens indoor track put with a throw of 14.67m/48-01.75 at the Gator Invite. Joyer, who won state championships at Tampa Catholic High his junior and senior year in the shot put, said that competing in track will help improve his strength and allaround athleticism. Track kind of helps out with football with explosion, Joyer said. They are really not too far apart. The invitational, which was held in the OConnell Center, showcased 26 men and 13 women from Florida and a host of athletes from other in-state schools like FAU, UNF, UCF, Florida A&M and Bethune-Cookman. Though a limited number of UF upperclassmen competed in their respective events, the meets main purpose was to acclimate some of the younger athletes, like Joyer, to the atmosphere of NCAA-sanctioned events. I just got settled in this year and Im just trying to get a feel for everything, Joyer said. Next year I think I can really cut loose. the competition was junior thrower Jeremy Postin, who set a personal best and a new school record in the mens weight throw with a distance of 21.31m/69-11.0. Overall, the No. 1 mens team and unranked women notched six individual wins, including three on throwing events, at the single-day meet. I think [Sunday] begins with Jeremy, coach Mike Holloway said. Talking with coach (Steve) Lemke, we kind of expected (that performance). Coach Lemke thinks theres even more in the tank. Postins success in the weight throw would be matched in the mens shot put by teammate Stipe Zunic. A sophomore from Zadar, Croatia, Zunic sent his winning toss On the womens side, Keely Medeiros also won a shot put title in the meet. Fellow senior Fidela James followed closely behind with a second-place toss, also taking a victory in the weight throw behind a toss of 19.11m/62-8.50. The big thing for me is I want to see a continual effort and keep building on what weve done so far, Holloway said. If you look at what weve done every year in the past, we get just a little bit better each week. Because of that, we always have great perfor mances at conference and nationals and we dont want to change that at all. A UF release contributed to this report.

16, ALLIGATOR MONDAY, JANUARY 23, 2012 RECRUITING KELLY PRICEAlligator Writer Will Muschamp doesnt come off as a warm and fuzzy guy. So defensive end Bryan Cox, Jr., was a bit taken aback when the Flor ida head coach embraced him after the three-star recruit announced his commitment before a dinner Satur day night. He just like gave me a really big hug and said Welcome to the family, Cox said. It felt great I never got a hug like that before in my life. It was just great to know that he was excited and I was excited. Cox, who brings Muschamps Miami, North Carolina, Michigan State, Louisville and others. I just made my own choice, he said. I just get a really good vibe from (the coaching staff).... I get great vibes from the Gator Nation. All the fans and the players are great. Cox joins a 2012 class stacked on ments and one already signed. Were going to have a lot more options with what coach can do with us and different packages and whatnot, he said. Its going to be interesting. The coaching staff told Cox he will start off at the Buck linebacker position with a switch to defensive end possible if he bulks up. Cox gave his oral commitment during a big weekend for recruiting star prospects, seven uncommitted athletes and four oral commits. The Gators also picked up a prospect in an area of need in 2013 running back Adam Lane from Winter Haven, who committed on The 5-foot-7, 207-pound back is the Also, uncommitted prospect Alex McCalister, a three-star end from Clemmons, N.C., will choose between Florida, Georgia Tech and North Carolina on Monday. Hes really lengthy and a rangey kind of guy, Cox said of McCalister. Put some weight on him and hell be a really good player. According to Cox, McCalister had a good time in Gainesville and has the Gators at the top of his board. I think he enjoyed it really well, Cox said. He was one of the guys I went out with. We had a good time. McCalister had been set to visit last weekend, but had to cancel due to an illness in his family. He moved his decision date from last week to this Monday. Florida has made a late push for McCalister, another promising defensive prospect noted for his ability to disrupt defenses and pursuit of the ball carrier. McCalister has also been told by the Florida coaching staff that he would play at the Buck linebacker position in Gainesville. end included oral commits Matt Jones, Colin Thompson, JaFar Mann and Brian Poole. Five-star wide receiver Stefon and FSU oral commit Dante Fowler, Gainesville this weekend. Three-star quarterback Skyler Mornhinweg, who is orally committed to Penn State, also visited. Since the hiring of new offensive coordinator Brent Pease, Diggs and Agholor seem to be leaning toward Florida, but both will most likely make decisions on or around Signing Day on Feb. 1. Diggs posted on Twitter Satur day night: I love it. Love the environment and just the thought of being a gator. Oral commitments are nonbinding until a national letter of intent is signed on or after National Signing Day on Feb. 1.Gators pick up two commitments during busy weekend UF SWEPT DOUBLES, WON 6-1.

The doubles teams of No. 41 Spencer Newman and Frank Carleton and No. 25 Bob van Overbeek also won their matches by scores of 8-6 and 8-5, respectively.
