STAFF REPORT At about 9:15 a.m. Monday, 268 crisp Alligator newspapers were found shoved into a trash bin on the north side of Weimer Hall. They were crowned by one newspaper with a wind-blown cover bearing the headline: Muschamp endorses Student Government VP candidate. Minutes before, a man and a woman wearing Unite Party T-shirts were seen pulling stacks of Alligators from the two orange racks that sit outside of the hall. with the Unite Party told the Alligator that Jason Tiemeier, Student Senate president pro tempore and campaign volunteer, was the man spotted discarding the newspapers. Health science and pre-physical therapy sophomore Taylor Chambers said he was standing near the two orange racks at about 9 a.m. when he saw Tiemeier and a woman discarding Alligators. Chambers, 20, said when the pair noticed him watching, they stopped. Journalism junior and Alligator freelance reporter Elizabeth Hamilton, 19, approached Tiemeier and asked him what he was doing.

SAMANTHA SHAVELLAlligator WriterThe cold weather wasnt enough to stop heated comments at Monday nights Student Government debate. About 300 people showed up at the Reitz Union Amphitheater for the debate hosted by the Freshman Leadership Council and the Hispanic Student Association. Any candidate from each party could respond to the questions, but the presidential candidates, Alex Cornillie for the Students Party and Tj Villamil for the Unite Party, spoke the most. Discussion topics included student involvement in the Florida Board of Governors, SG funding and perks for SG oflegislation that would decide whether the governor could appoint the student member of the Board of Governors. We think it takes power away from students, Cornillie said. Villamil said the legislation is pro-UF It may take away democracy, but it takes out the politics, Villamil said. Each party platform promotes expanding services to students, but Villamil said the Unite Partys platform points will not bring extra fees to students. Students Party treasurer candidate Carly Wilson said student fees have risen 5 percent each year since she has been at the university. The debate also discussed the perks passes and meal cards. Wilson said her partys executives wont accept perks. I take my lunch to school every day, Wilson said. That will not change if I get elected. Unite Party vice presidential candidate Juan Rodriguez said these items are not He said this compensation comes from outside revenue that is no cost to students. He said the meal cards are for business purposes only, and the parking passes are time to represent the Student Body. The two parties agreed on the issue to stop the hiked tuition costs of STEM classes. ADRIANNA PAIDASAlligator Writer his wrist. When hes at the grill, the career grilled cheese-maker gets into a gooey groove. Every weekend, Howey parks his trailer which doubles as a fully equipped kitchen attached to his pick-up truck - on a blacktop parking lot at the corner of Northwest 55th Street and Newberry Road. He swings open the front door and window of the trailer and serves his sandwiches to jeanand T-shirtclad Gainesville folk while cars whiz past. On Thursday, it will be time for Howey, 36, and his business partner and girlfriend Cara Miller, 31, to set up shop at a music festival in North Florida. The two will park their wagon on a dirt path in the middle of the woods and serve sandwiches to teenagers running around in butter ful Dead songs in tie-dyed garb. This is the life of the Grilled Cheese Wagon. When music festival season picks up, the wagon migrates from the cement parking lot to places like Spirit of the Suwanee Music Park, a campground an hours drive north of Gainesville. Good vibes and good food is what we live by, whether we are here in Gainesville or at a festival, Howey said. It was the light-hearted mood that routinely brought Gainesville resident Dwynette Smith back to the wagon, despite her lactose intoler ance. Its more than worth it, the 34year-old said. These grilled cheeses are delicious, and he is such a nice guy. Were always sad to see the wagon go. Theres nothing special about his grilled cheese, Howey said. Its a sandwich made with white or wheat bread and American, Provolone or Swiss cheese, and it costs $3. Customers can add various vegetables, bacon, tempeh and chicken all made in the county to their sandwiches. The more you add, the more you pay. Were not doing rocket science here, Howey said. Were not using fancy artisan bread or fancy cheeses. We just do it perfectly toasted and lightly steamed to make sure its cooked through the middle. Howey has been making grilled cheese sandwiches for almost a decade. In 2004, he took over making sandwiches at Tim and Terrys, a for mer bar in Gainesville that featured folk and bluegrass music. Most of the time, customers demanded his grilled cheese. It was at the bar that Howey, who usually wears a folk band Tshirt and hides his short hair under a rugged baseball cap, cultivated his carefree mentality. Howey tended the bar and made grilled cheeses at Tim and Terrys until 2009, just before it closed. When a monthly one-night music festival in Alachua called Farm to Family decided to expand to two nights in April 2008, Howey was asked to use his grilled cheesemaking expertise from the bar to help feed the crowd. He and Miller bought a pop-up camper and an electric griddle and called themselves a snack hut. They cooked grilled cheeses through the night. The hut became a hit. One year later, after cooking at Farm to Family every month, the two saw an ad for a kitchen trailer on Craigslist and bought it. They named it the Grilled Cheese Wagon. Miller, an avid doodler, drew a picture of a grilled cheese sandwich in an old, red Radio Flyer wagon on the back of an order slip three years ago. The wagon became known as the businesss symbol at small festivals that attracted a couple hundred people. Eventually, they applied to serve food at larger festivals in Flor ida where thousands gather, and they were accepted. Now, they have become festival foodies, people who serve at music festivals in Florida once or twice almost every month. What we are now seemed kind of far-fetched at the time, Miller said. We didnt expect to get this big. On off-weekends, Howey and Miller will set up the wagon in the parking lot to serve lunch and dinner to in-town regulars. Then, once again, its off to the festival scene. Selling food at these events can get competitive. People are trying to sell as much of their food as they can, Howey said. It is a business, after all, but they try not to step on anyones toes. The wagon should be back in the in March. Well always come back, Howey said. Gainesvilles home, and we love our family here as much we love our festival family. 4, ALLIGATOR TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 21, 2012Haley Stracher / Alligator StaffJason Howey, 36, of Williston, works at the Grilled Cheese Wagon food truck.

Witnesses have also indicated that he did not act alone. Tiemeier and all those involved should be ashamed of themselves for their reliance on dirty and classless political tactics. This goes beyond the SG election and shows the true character of these members of the Unite Party. More than 50 people put in countless hours every day putting together this paper for you, the Student Body. We also have career staff members whose paychecks rely on advertising revenue from businesses that expect their ads to be seen each day. To take a stack of papers and trash them for no reason other than petty political games is beyond irresponsible. information on campus, the businesses that support us and the First Amendment. Ignorance is not an excuse at this point. We expect a written apology from Unite and its campaign managers for not closely following actors within its camately. This should not be happening at any level of government, and especially not on a college campus where unrestricted discussion and open-mindedness are encouraged. We should all treat each other with respect despite our disagreements. The Alligator has been completely fair in its news coverage of the election, and it does not deserve these sort of attacks from either side. We have also been diligent in publishing letters from supporters of both parties. Obviously, the endorsement by head football coach Will Muschamp on Mondays front page seemed to give the Unite Party a lot of political reasons to stop students from reading the Alligator, but we do not want to make broad, sweeping assumptions about the entire party. This could have been one or two individuals acting alone. We do, however, want to ask that anyone involved in this step forward, be an adult and admit that this move was completely stupid. Were pissed off, but well get over it. Above all else, we feel the Student Body deserves an apology from these individuals who betrayed its trust and tried to manipulate this election. Let us hope this is the end of dirty campaign tactics for this election. Trashy PoliticsUnite members actions uncalled for The anticipation of college: the all-nighters, the parties, the hard-earned diploma all just unaffordable dreams to children of undocumented parents. SB 106 died in the Florida Senate Judiciary Committee last week, a bill that would have allowed children of illegal parents to qualify for in-state tuition. This was the second attempt at making education more of a reality than a utopian dream HB 81, similar in intent, failed in the same Republican-dominated Senate a month earlier. The 4-3 vote speaks volumes about the Florida Legislature. Sen. Gary Siplins proposal had all the right ingredients: The student must attend a Florida high school for three years, graduate, register at a Florida college or university and, most to seek residency or citizenship. That last requirement makes all the difference. Why it wasnt enough for the judiciary committee, we will never know. The heated argument about granting in-state tuition to the children of undocumented parents is formed upon the hot topic of illegal immigration. Not that I condone breaking the law illegal immigration is, after all, illegal, and should be enforced but many of these children came at the will of their parents. Among those barred from qualifying for in-state tuition are children parents. Lets give them the opportunity to right their parents wrongs. Give them equal tuition, and theyll become productive citizens. The debate against granting in-state tuition for these children boils down, like almost everything else, to money. The argument goes as follows: If their parents didnt pay taxes, why should they pay the same rate as lifetime Florida residents? Or rather, why didnt their parents become citizens? I dont have the answer for the second question, other than the process of immigration desperately needs to be amendbreak the cycle. These students attend college and become citizens. Soon enough theyll be paying taxes to the state, perhaps funding a student in a similar circumstance. Its a matter of paying it forward and progressing onward. UF tuition for a Florida resident is a bargain $5,700 a year for an undergrad. Just looking at fees and ignoring the pile-up of housing, books and food, out-of-state tuition amounts to an astounding and unnecessary $27,936. And thats just for one year. out-of-state tuition is pocket robbery. The bill will morph into student loans, which will compound into more debt over time. If theyre granted in-state tuition, students can move up the economic ladder and contribute to Floridas economy. Keeping these children from an affordable education doesnt teach them or their parents a thing about becoming a legal citizen. These children cant improve themselves without education, something taken for granted in our current system. Lets not forget that these students are products of the Florida public school system. They passed the FCAT and earned their high school diplomas. If they go through the effort of applying to college and are accepted, why not give them a fair shot at paying for it? The Florida Legislature needs to approve a bill for these thousands of students who have dreams of becoming doctors, lawyers, engineers or teachers. To stunt those dreams because of their parents decisions word unfair. Colleen Wright is a journalism freshman at UF. Her column appears on Tuesdays.

CHRIS ALCANTARAAlligator Contributing WriterThe Gainesville Police Department wants students to be prepared when the walking dead strike. The GPD Crime Prevention its Zombie Campaign series Saturday on Police Beat, a GPD television show. The video features Mikel he arrests zombies for stealing a bicycle, snatching a stereo out of a home and lifting a students backpack from her car. The campaign was designed to inform college students about the threat of burglary if cars, homes and bicycles are left unlocked, but with a pop culture twist, said GPD Lt. Art Adkins. Adkins said 50 percent of vehicle burglaries that ocFebruary in Gainesville happened because cars were left unlocked. To raise awareness of bur glary in the city, Adkins said Mazlaghani came up with the idea of sending out a crime prevention message through the use of a Hollywood icon: the zombie. Ernest Graham, a GPD the Zombie Campaign is a way to reach the student population. You take something serious, like property crime, and put a fun twist on it, like zombies, and that makes it enter taining, he said. Property crimes are, a majority of the time, a crime of opportunity, she added. Chas Reynolds, a 19-yearold chemical engineering freshman, was a victim of burglary in October when someone broke into his car and stole his iPod, a friends iPhone, four credit cards and $100 in cash. Reynolds said he thinks the Zombie Campaign will help prevent burglaries throughout the city. However, Brian Ware, a 20year-old information systems and operations management sophomore, does not see the new campaign in the same light as the department. I think the use of zombies is a little childish, he said. Theft is a serious crime and should be treated as such, especially in raising awareness. Unite members deny any involvementand said Tiemeier and the woman walked off with a stack of Alligators. Tiemeier told the Alligator he was not involved, saying he was at home Monday morning. I was sleeping, he said. Brock Hankins, campaign manager for the Unite Party, echoed Tiemeier. with the Unite Party, he said. It is not clear whether Tiemeier and the woman were instructed by party leadership or if they were acting alone. Students Party President Ford Dwyer said he was not sur prised by the mornings events. People have told me that in previous elections, it has been a tactic to censor certain speech in the Alligator that [the Unite Party] didnt want students to know about, he said. Capt. Jeff Holcomb of the UF Police Department said this activity might be considered theft because even though the newspapers are free, they are not intended for mass destruction. The said. In his 24 years of service, he said, he has never heard of this happening. Chris Loschiavo, assistant dean of students and director trashing hundreds of copies of a free newspaper is unclear. Its certainly not a black-and-white issue, he said. Theres a lot of shades of gray. Alligator staff writers Joey Flechas, Elizabeth Hamilton, Erin Jester, Clare Lennon, Emily Morrow, Jon Silman and Matt Watts contributed to this report. NEW SP APERS, from page 1Problems with polls could extend hoursmiliar with the locations. Sen. Katie Waldman lead a committee that revised the election codes. She said she would have to further examine whether the shortened times violate the codes. Due to problems with the fall elections, the new codes dictated that the Supervisor of Elections come up with a contingency plan in case last-minute problems occur. In Megnas plan, if six or more of the polling locations are down for one to six hours, the polls could stay open up to three additional hours. Megna declined to comment on whether the building administration was aware that polls might have to stay open until 11:30 p.m. Vernon Kisling, the chairman of Marston Science Library, said he wasnt aware that polls might be open longer than 8:30 p.m. He said it doesnt matter, though, because the library will be open anyway.

TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 21, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 15 Shawn Janetzke / Alligator Staff Aundre Larrow / Alligator StaffFlorida redshirt junior guard Mike Rosario (hip) is expected to return tonight against Auburn after missing UFs last three games. AFTER A BRIEF FALL, FLORIDA MOVED UP IN BOTH POLLS THIS WEEK. GREG LUCAAlligator Staff WriterMike Rosario will likely be available for Floridas matchup against Auburn tonight, coach Billy Donovan said Monday. Rosario missed UFs last three games with a hip pointer after colliding with Cody Larson during a practice following Floridas Feb. 11 matchup with Tennessee. The impact left substantial bruising and swelling, according to Donovan, so much so that Rosario was limited from even jogging or riding a bike. He progressed such that he attempted practice Friday but ultimately pulled himself out. Instead of traveling with the team to Arkansas, he remained in Gainesville for additional treatment. Donovan said Rosario practiced Sunday and would play if Mondays practice goes smoothly. Hes really favoring it to the point where hes very, very leery of cutting and moving in certain ways, Donovan said. I dont think hes going to put himself in a position where hes going to re-injure it. ... But I do think he through it because it just does not feel comfortable when hes cutting and moving. Donovan added that Rosario has not suffered many injuries during his career and thus tends to be overcautious when they occur. Over the course of this season, Rosario has dealt with a sprained ankle and a disc issue in his lower back, and Donovan said Rosario was hampered by a fear of aggravating his injury in both instances. It causes him when hes playing to be very, very tentative and to almost shy away from doing certain things on the court when he doesnt feel comfortable, Donovan said. For Mike, its been more of trying to get him to do get him to understand that, OK, youre not going to reinjure this or set yourself back. But I think when hes feeling pain and discomfort in his mind right now, he worries about that. Rosario is UFs leading scorer off the bench at 7.9 points per game. In two contests without him, Florida scored a combined four bench points. Beal earns honor: Brad Beal was named Southeastern Conference Freshman of the Week for the sixth time this season, the league announced Monday. Beal scored 35 points, grabbed 17 rebounds and added six assists in wins over Alabama and Arkansas. He also contributed on the defensive end with four steals and four blocks. has grabbed 49 boards over the last six games, compared to Patric Youngs 29 and Erik Murphys 24. He has made an effort to go to the glass, Donovan said. Hes always been a good rebounding guard. He needs to get in there and rebound for our team it helps us. Movin on up: In the latest edition of the AP Poll, released Monday, Florida moved up two spots from No. 14 to No. 12. The Gators also rose from No. 12 to No. 11 in the coaches poll. UFs RPI is also on the rise, moving from No. 20 to No. 17 this week. That shift has the Gators projected as a No. 4 seed in ESPNs Bracketology with Joe Lunardi. Although Donovan said he does not talk to his team about their potential NCAA Tournament seeding, Erving Walker said the Gators occasionally take notice. Sometimes, Walker said with a grin. But Joe Lunardi is wrong sometimes. Contact Greg Luca at gluca@alligator.orgRosario return possible; Beal awarded Donovan judging success on more than good shooting performancesthrow a rock in the ocean. While the Tigers frustrated the Gators in their 2011 meeting primarily with a single defensive set, the 2-3 zone, Florida is preparing for Auburn to throw a variety of formations, including a 2-2-1 press and stints of man-toman its way this time. Boynton said ball movement and getting good penetration into the lane will be impor tant in opening up the Tigers aggressive defense. The Gators will also focus on working the ball into 6-foot-9 center Patric Young, who was in foul trouble for most of the Arkansas win but had a team-high 19 points at Alabama. The four Florida big men who scored last year at Auburn, including Young, were only able to notch 19 points combined. good decisions and the right passes, I think the defense always dictates where the ball needs to go, Donovan said. I thought in the game against Arkansas we did a good job of that. How Auburn guards us, and the decisions well have to make in that game, presents its own challenge as itself. Donovan wants his teams play to be judged by more than just how many threes it makes, whether that be the 13 the Gators made at Ar I just have never been a big believer of the fact that if the ball goes in the basket, you play well, he said. What I was pleased with is that I felt that our spacing, our ball movement, our shot selection was great. Once the shot goes up and we dont make them, you still have to go and do some other things.
