JOSH JURNOVOY Alligator Staff Writer James Wilson nearly quit football before he had a chance to play at his best. He wasnt giving up because things got tough or because he wasnt getting enough playing time. He was going to stop playing the sport that once made him one of the most sought-after high school players in the country because he was forced to undergo a fourth surgery on his left knee. Wilson had just sat out the last 10 games of the 2010 season recovering from surgery on the same knee. Three years earlier, he took a medical redshirt as the knee underwent two operaman year at UF. After redshirting, Wilson was discouraged and considered transferring, but he decided against it after a talk with his high school coach, Craig Howard. I got in the car and I drove to Gainesville and I found him, said Howard. [I] get in the restaurant and sat down with him and said, Son, youre in the right school and the right place for your education and the right place for your football. The conversation helped convince Wilson to stay at Florida, and he eventually came to agree with Howard. But before reaching that point, the sixth-year senior guard worked through two more surgeries. He also dealt with fractures in both of his feet at the same time. I texted him the other day and I said, Remember when I drove there and told you to stay? Howard said. He said, Coach, Im so glad you did. Im so proud and excited to be a When Wilson showed up to football practice at Ponte Vedra Nease High as a freshman in 2003, he didnt look the part of an offensive lineman. He was close to his current height of 6 feet, 4 inches, but he weighed less than 200 pounds. He was a big-boned kid, said Danny Cowgill, Wilsons strength coach at Nease. He had like a size-14 shoe, I believe. You can tell Division I players when they walk in as freshmen, and you could tell when he walked in as a freshman that he was going to be a Division I player. Wilson bought into the Nease strength and conditioning program from the start, hitting the weight room with vigor. However, Howard, who now coaches at Southern Oregon, worried that the process of adding muscle contributed to injuries that nagged Wilson throughout high school. As a freshman, he weighed 180 pounds. As a senior, he weighed more than 300 pounds. I always said, James, youre getting too big, his mom, Carla Wilson, said. But he was always in the weight room, always going to the YMCA. And I do think that some of that contributed to his knee injuries. ished. As a junior, he anchored an offensive line that blocked for Tim Tebow as Nease won a state championship. He was so big, so strong, so physical, Howard said. And he could run. That was what separated him. He was a guy that was 300 pounds and could run like a 190-pounder. During his senior season, in 2007, James was the top-rated guard and the 12th-best player in the country according to Rivals.com, which ranked Tebow 22nd overall in the class of 2006. As long as he stayed healthy, Cowgill said, he was going to have great success. In the spring of his senior year, James committed to go join his former quarterback at Florida. He had left a mark at Nease and a lasting impression on Howard. Ive coached for 38 years, Howard said. Ive had quite a few football players that have gone on to Division I football. James Wilson, what he was as a player for me, was as dominant at his position as Tim Tebow was at his. season in Gainesville. While he kept a good attitude through his surgeries, he still had to sit and watch. He didnt feel like part of the team. There was some frustration because he really wanted to be out there, Carla said. James thought about transferring as his rehab dragged into spring practice, but he once again found happiness when he returned to the Everyone welcomed me back with open arms, Wilson said during spring practice in 2008. After playing in 10 regular season games during the Gators 2008 championship season, James suffered his most debilitating injury. He had been playing with sore feet, but the injuries worsened in the Southeastern Conference Championship against Alabama. He was diagnosed with fractures in both feet following the weeks. days because the elevator broke. Day-to-day living became a challenge. Simple tasks such as navigating his dorm room turned into big ordeals. He couldnt get around, Carla said. Hes a big kid, and theres not a whole lot of room to move around. Im like, James, you keep running into the walls. Still, James worked through it. Carla visited him every weekend, and the two managed to laugh and talk and keep the injuries out of their minds even though he couldnt walk. He successfully rehabilitated his feet and went on to play in 14 games and make four starts in 2009. His streak of good health ended a year later. 2010 season after re-injuring his left meniscus. Guard David Young, who played for the Gators from 2008-11, also missed most of the season after suffering a broken kneecap. We were best friends, Young said. We were rehab buddies. Having already experienced being out for a get through the rehab process without dwelling too much on what he was missing. They talked about their moms, their families and whatever else was going on in their lives, but they didnt discuss injuries. He helped me keep my mind off football, Young said The guards motivated each other in rehab. Young said whenever one of them wanted to take a day off, the other made him get out of bed. James suffered another setback in the spring, when he had to undergo his fourth knee procedure. He said he came closer than ever to quitting football in the aftermath of the surgery but decided with friends and family to keep playing. The surgery set James back, and he was not at what coach Will Muschamp referred to as a playable weight at the start of fall camp in 2011. He began the season on the scout team but ended up appearing in 12 games. He made his Ohio State in the Gator Bowl. While James weight was not quite where Muschamp wanted it, the coaching staff didnt write him off. Its always been a weight issue with James, Muschamp said. If he keeps his weight down, hes able to play. Hes able to sustain. Hes always been a very talented guy, and given the opportunity, which he did at the end of last season when he got his weight under control, hes been a productive player for us. Carla thought the limited playing time had In my mind and in my heart, she said, I think it was a blessing in disguise to give his knee some rest. James and Carla discussed applying for a sixth year of eligibility early in the 2011 season, but James was against it. Thinking shed never see her son play again, Carla was upset. Then she got some surprising news prior to what she night against Florida State. After improving physically throughout the course of the season, James changed his mind. [James] was like, Ive applied for a sixth year, and well see what they say, and next year, hopefully Ill be able to prove myself, Carla said. During Floridas win against Ohio State in the Gator Bowl on Jan. 2, the last game of what James thought would be his last season, he found out his request for a sixth year of eligibility had been granted. I was so happy for him because of how much he wanted it, Young said. It was like him getting a clean slate. Things began to fall into place for Wilson, who stayed healthy for an entire spring practice Its totally night and day, James said. He came into the 2012 season 11 pounds lighter at 323 pounds, a weight that Howard said makes him more effective than he has ever been. Hes been persistent, Howard said. He hasnt given up. A lot of guys would quit, or leave or fade into the fog. Wide receiver Frankie Hammond Jr. sees the results of James relentless drive every day at the locker across from his. Hammond, who James journey and believes it is a good example for inexperienced players who might encounter similar adversity. guys who are here that are going through injuries or going through tough times, Hammond said. On a second-and-15 play during the Gators second drive of the third quarter against South Carolina on Oct. 20, offensive coordinator Brent Pease called a screen pass to tight end Jordan threw a block on South Carolina linebacker Shaq Wilson that sprung Reed for a 39-yard gain. It was the kind of play his mom hadnt seen him make in years. I was like, Damn, James, Ive never seen you move that fast, Carla said. The win against the Gamecocks was the sixth of James seven starts this season. He has missed only one game, UFs Oct. 13 win against Vanderbilt due to an orbital fracture suffered in practice. Those who are closest to him savor every moment they can watch him play. After six American guard realize his potential. Im seeing the big James Wilson that Ive always loved, Young said.

She said students will work together to discuss business cases, solve problems and create products with team members. The studio allows distance-learning students to work with residential students in real-time. The room features cameras, microphones, a video production studio and web conferencing capabilities, according to a press release. Were really excited to offer this opportunity for both students and teachers, Means said. In order to take advantage of what the studio has to offer, teachers have to design their courses differently, said graduate student and instructor James Van Scotter. The learning studio encourages a teamwork environment, and if students are underprepared, he said, peer pressure now plays a part in getting students to keep up with their work. The professor grading things isnt the only incentive now, he said.UF business school unveils interactive learning studio ATTENDEES DISCUSSED THE BLACKFACE INCIDENT. SAMANTHA SHAVELLAlligator Staff WriterAbout 450 people, including faculty, administration and students, met for a town hall meeting Thursday to discuss last weeks incident involving two Beta Theta Pi brothers who wore blackface makeup to a social. UF professor of African-American studies Patricia Hilliard-Nunn presented the history of blackface. She said it originated in Europe in the 1600s to mimic African people and was eventually popularized in said actors exaggerated AfricanAmerican features and placed them in roles as musicians and dancers for comic relief. They were copying that culture Hilliard-Nunn said. After her presentation, students expressed their opinions and proposed ideas to solve cultural issues at UF. Leonard Thompson, a member of the currently suspended Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity, discussed his feelings about the lack of involvement the administration had in responding to the blackface incident. He said when his fraternity was suspended for hazing last year, an email was sent out to the entire Student Body about the issue. But so far, nothing has been sent out about this.

MICHAEL SCOTT DAVIDSONAlligator WriterPaper tombstones hung from the walls of La Casita on Thursday, but it wasnt because of Halloween. UFs Institute of Hispanic/Latino Cultures and the Mexican American Student Association hosted a free Dia de Los Muertos celebraThursday afternoon. Translated as Day of the Dead, the celebration focused on remembering friends and family members who have died, said event director Eric Castillo. The holiday is mainly celebrated in Mexico. Its supposed to be a day of joy, the 30-year-old said. About 80 people placed electronic candles at a rosemary-adorned altar, wrote notes for the deceased and painted each others faces with calavera designs, which are artistic representations of skulls. event had been held since 2007. Hilario Cabrera, a 20-yearold psychology and political science junior, enjoyed a cup of arroz con leche among a group of people eating Mexican food. He said the sweet, creamy rice pudding was his favorite dessert. Cabrera went to the event to pay respect to his grandmother, who recently passed away. He said he thought the event was a good way to raise the institutes presence in the community. It should be repeated every single year, so people know Latino culture is on campus, and its embraced more, he said. Castillo said the event offered a quick Mexican immersion experience for students.

Thursdays question: Do you understand the amendments on the ballot?62% YES 38% NOCitizen journalism can give you a voiceOn Wednesday, I gave two different presentations in two different classes on the same topic: citizen journalism. Despite wanting to give myself a root canal the night before trying to wrap up the work for both classes and having only slept for about three hours I realized I was delving into an extraordinary subject. If youve never heard of the term citizen journalism, dont worry; I hadnt either. Citizen journalism is any form of journalism in which average citizens take it upon themselves to actively investigate, report, and disseminate information and news. This kind of reportage takes many forms anything from blogging about a political rally to recording police brutality on a mobile phone. Unlike traditional mainstream journalism, citizen journalism is characterized by a lack of professional training and editorial standards. Its often freely accessible and interactive. It aims to break the stranglehold gatekeepers may possess in professional publications or outlets and it gives a voice to those who may not otherwise have one. This phenomenon, which is also referred to as participatory, public, democratic or street journalism, has played a major role in several events. The genesis of the concept is movie of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, 8-mm Bell & Howell camera. during all investigations of the assassination, and to this day, less, citizen journalism has only recently begun to gain moprovided public citizens with multiple new technologies that can be used to document events. Perhaps the key tool used today in the practice of citizen journalism is the cellphone. Cellphones, for instance, have played a very major role in Africa, where they remain the predominant technology in a region still struggling to expand access to computers and the Internet. In late 2007, Kenya suffered a major crisis after that years general election, during which several violent incidents took place throughout the country. This led to Kenyan citizens documenting these incidents via text messaging, which, in turn, led to a very effective online mapping tool that tions and allowed the public to see where violence was taking place. This movement is referred to as Ushahidi, whose model has been used in several platforms throughout Africa to this day. Cellphones also facilitated citizen journalism during the 2009 to 2010 Iranian election protests and during the Arab Spring. Mobile technologies allowed protesters to not only document the protests themselves and state violence that followed, but it was mobile technologies that allowed citizens to organize themselves to begin with, mostly through text messaging and through social media platforms such as Facebook. This trend also applied to Occupy Wall Street, when the movement through email. Once the idea spread online virally, Adbusters designed a simple but striking poster to promote the event, and as they say, the rest is history. These monumental events are only a few of the most notable examples of how citizen journalism has proven an effective way to challenge the status quo of our media, in which major corporations own our most trusted news sources and, as a result, control the conversation. You, however, dont have to accept this status quo. If and when you can, use the technology at your disposal to make a difference. Websites such as GlobalVoices, AllVoices, Littera Report and Examiner.com all allow average citizens to post reports on anything of note. Make your voice heard.

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 2, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 7 R omney has pretty much nailed down Florida, said Brad Coker, an expert pollster from Mason-Dixon Polling and Research. Unless something dramatically changes Romneys going to win Florida. With absentee and early voting well under way, a Tampa Bay Times poll shows Gov. Romney in command of the toss-up state. This sample pertains to the traditional I-4 corridor that stretches from Tampa to Daytona Beach, which generally decides the way Florida will vote. With momentum seemingly in Romneys favor, this poll indicated he has taken a 51 percent lead over Obamas 45 percent in the Sunshine State. Nevertheless, this poll directly contradicts CNN reports of Romney leading Obama by 1 percentage point. Regardless, Florida seems to be shifting in favor of Romney. If you have not voted yet, do not under any circumstances allow this to make you reconsider your vote or lead you to not vote. After all, the election is not just for the presidency. This apparent shift in support among Democrats and Republicans from 2008 to 2012 is also evident in the newspaper endorsement game. Not just on a national scale, several prominent Florida newsport from the president to his challenger. Romney leads 49 to 41 percent among independents, and it is estimated that about 4 percent of the electorate remains undecided. We should vote with the same or even greater intensity for our local and state elections as we do for the head of the executive branch of the federal government. We see the impact of these races on a day-to-day basis in our lives. Yes, the President of the United States is a remarkable and unique position that sets the agenda for our great arsenal of democracy. Yes, the President of the United States also dominates our news, politics and popular culture. And yes, being president is something that millions of young children dream of being when they grow up. However, unlike the president and even our representatives in Congress, it is our local elected leaders We see the impact of these races on a day to day basis in our lives. These local and state elections have a much more munities. From taxes to education to infrastructure, these issues should dominate our thinking. understand and work with businesses to generate the conditions and incentives needed to promote entrepreneurs, as well as job growth. Arent the economy and jobs the most important issues of this election? Then we, the voting public, ought to consider our local elections with the same interest and passion as we do our presidential publics. While the Electoral College system may limit the power of voters in certain states, one vote can dramatically impact a local election. Turnout is so unacceptably low to the degree that, at least in my hometown, an entire citys high school graduating class can shift an election one way or the other. However, unlike the president and even our representatives in Congress, for us every day. They understand the unique conditions of our towns and municipalities like no other. They realize our cities unique, individual needs from like parks to the necessary conditions for affordable housing. Being that so many leave these sections on the ballot blank or, in a non-presidential election year, do not even show up to the polls, each and every individual vote As such, take care and research local candidates. There is no excuse this year to not vote in local races. There is even less of an excuse in other election years where poor turnout leads to absolutely no line a ballot at home and mailing it. These are the circumstances that matter most, in which we, the people of the United States of America, notice an impact each and every day we go about our lives. Do not settle just voting for Romney or Obama, or fall whim to popular belief. Strive to research, and complete your entire ballot on Tuesday. After all, it is this type of grassroots change that truly does make a difference. Michael Schnur is an economics freshman at UF. His column usually appears on Wednesdays.Florida projected to go to Romney, focus on state races insteadColumn Matthew Schnuropinions@alligator.org

MICHELLE PLITNIKASAlligator Contributing WriterShandsCair, the air rescue and critical care transport system for Shands at UF, will broaden its horizons with two new helicopters within the next year. On Thursday, ShandsCair unveiled a new helicopter, ShandsCair 3, stationed at a small community hospital in Perry, Fla. ShandsCair already has helicopters stationed in Gainesville and south of Ocala. I live in Perry, and in a lot of emergency situations, people are transported to Shands, said Ellie senior. Investing this money is dities. In about a year, there will be a larger, more specialized replacement for the current helicopter ShandsCair has stationed in Gainesville. The new aircraft, called the EC155, will have larger cabin space and a range of about 360 nautical miles, said Staccie Allen, ShandsCair program director. The larger range will allow the new aircraft to transport patients from the Panhandle and southern Florida to Shands without the use of multiple vehicles or refueling. It will allow us to get patients The cabin of the ShandsCair 1 was sometimes too small for obese patients, the rescue of more than one patient at a time and patients connected to life-sustaining equipment, Allen said. Ed Jimenez, senior vice president hospital, said ShandsCair 1 is 8 years old and has seen about 4,300 hours but replacing it is a safe and proper approach to continuing Shands quality of care. Jimenez said Eurocopter, a global helicopter manufacturing company, is currently building the EC155. In the meantime, ShandsCair will use a rented helicopter in order to keep ShandsCair 1. The hospital plans to sell ShandsCair 1 when its replacement is available, Jimenez said. The transport system started in 1981 and has transported about 48,000 patients, Allen said. She described all of the ShandsCair vehicles as miniature mobile intensive care units. It is the highest level of critical care outside of the hospital, Allen said.

16, ALLIGATOR FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 2, 2012 David Carr / Alligator StaffForward Will Yeguete (15) attempts a shot in UFs exhibition against Nebraska-Kearney on Thursday. KATIE AGOSTIN Alligator Staff Writer With 15:25 remaining in the second half, junior Will Yeguete took the ball to the hoop and extended the Gators lead to 14 with a two-handed slam. After missing the last nine games of the 2011-12 season due to a fractured left foot suffered on Feb. 21, Yeguete was back on the court with a lot of energy on Thursday night. Entering the exhibition against Nebraska-Kearney, coach Billy Donovans biggest concern for No. 10 Florida was its ability to rebound. Donovan even said hed been disappointed by Yeguetes rebounding performance in the days leading up to the exhibition. Yeguete switched gears on Thursday, leading all players with 11 rebounds after averaging 6.3 per game last year. The forward also tacked on 20 points while hitting 80 percent of his shots as he led Florida to a 101-71 win against Nebraska-Kearney in the OConnell Center. Yeguete also hit 4 of 5 shots from the free-throw line after hitting just 35.9 percent of his tries last season. I give him a lot of credit, because I think the things I pointed out to him he really tried to address, Donovan said. Ive seen a different player (and) a different attitude. Yeguete added: I think we couldve done better (at rebounding), but personally I just wanted to go out there and at least get more than 10 rebounds. I want to prove [Donovan] wrong. I want to prove (to him) that we can be a good team and we can rebound. Although Donovan was pleased with Yeguetes defense, the rest of the Gators did not draw such high praise. Florida outrebounded its Division II opponent by just three. I was really surprised and disappointed ... with how we played defensively collectively as a group, Donovan said. I am extremely alarmed and concerned about our team on that end of the Despite the Gators shortcomings on defense, Donovan was impressed by the performances of UFs four freshmen. Freshman guard Michael Frazier II led the Gators with 21 points on 5-of-6 shooting from behind the arc in just 17 minutes. Freshman Braxton Ogbueze rounded on the team with 15 points. Together, the freshmen accounted for almost half of Floridas total points. The young guys, they were providing intensity, senior Kenny Boynton said.

JOSH JURNOVOY Alligator Staff Writer James Wilson nearly quit football before he had a chance to play at his best. He wasnt giving up because things got tough or because he wasnt getting enough playing time. He was going to stop playing the sport that once made him one of the most sought-after high school players in the country because he was forced to undergo a fourth surgery on his left knee. Wilson had just sat out the last 10 games of the 2010 season recovering from surgery on the same knee. Three years earlier, he took a medical redshirt as the knee underwent two operaman year at UF. After redshirting, Wilson was discouraged and considered transferring, but he decided against it after a talk with his high school coach, Craig Howard. I got in the car and I drove to Gainesville and I found him, said Howard. [I] get in the restaurant and sat down with him and said, Son, youre in the right school and the right place for your education and the right place for your football. The conversation helped convince Wilson to stay at Florida, and he eventually came to agree with Howard. But before reaching that point, the sixth-year senior guard worked through two more surgeries. He also dealt with fractures in both of his feet at the same time. I texted him the other day and I said, Remember when I drove there and told you to stay? Howard said. He said, Coach, Im so glad you did. Im so proud and excited to be a When Wilson showed up to football practice at Ponte Vedra Nease High as a freshman in 2003, he didnt look the part of an offensive lineman. He was close to his current height of 6 feet, 4 inches, but he weighed less than 200 pounds. He was a big-boned kid, said Danny Cowgill, Wilsons strength coach at Nease. He had like a size-14 shoe, I believe. You can tell Division I players when they walk in as freshmen, and you could tell when he walked in as a freshman that he was going to be a Division I player. Wilson bought into the Nease strength and conditioning program from the start, hitting the weight room with vigor. However, Howard, who now coaches at Southern Oregon, worried that the process of adding muscle contributed to injuries that nagged Wilson throughout high school. As a freshman, he weighed 180 pounds. As a senior, he weighed more than 300 pounds. I always said, James, youre getting too big, his mom, Carla Wilson, said. But he was always in the weight room, always going to the YMCA. And I do think that some of that contributed to his knee injuries. ished. As a junior, he anchored an offensive line that blocked for Tim Tebow as Nease won a state championship. He was so big, so strong, so physical, Howard said. And he could run. That was what separated him. He was a guy that was 300 pounds and could run like a 190-pounder. During his senior season, in 2007, James was the top-rated guard and the 12th-best player in the country according to Rivals.com, which ranked Tebow 22nd overall in the class of 2006. As long as he stayed healthy, Cowgill said, he was going to have great success. In the spring of his senior year, James committed to go join his former quarterback at Florida. He had left a mark at Nease and a lasting impression on Howard. Ive coached for 38 years, Howard said. Ive had quite a few football players that have gone on to Division I football. James Wilson, what he was as a player for me, was as dominant at his position as Tim Tebow was at his. season in Gainesville. While he kept a good attitude through his surgeries, he still had to sit and watch. He didnt feel like part of the team. There was some frustration because he really wanted to be out there, Carla said. James thought about transferring as his rehab dragged into spring practice, but he once again found happiness when he returned to the Everyone welcomed me back with open arms, Wilson said during spring practice in 2008. After playing in 10 regular season games during the Gators 2008 championship season, James suffered his most debilitating injury. He had been playing with sore feet, but the injuries worsened in the Southeastern Conference Championship against Alabama. He was diagnosed with fractures in both feet following the weeks. days because the elevator broke. Day-to-day living became a challenge. Simple tasks such as navigating his dorm room turned into big ordeals. He couldnt get around, Carla said. Hes a big kid, and theres not a whole lot of room to move around. Im like, James, you keep running into the walls. Still, James worked through it. Carla visited him every weekend, and the two managed to laugh and talk and keep the injuries out of their minds even though he couldnt walk. He successfully rehabilitated his feet and went on to play in 14 games and make four starts in 2009. His streak of good health ended a year later. 2010 season after re-injuring his left meniscus. Guard David Young, who played for the Gators from 2008-11, also missed most of the season after suffering a broken kneecap. We were best friends, Young said. We were rehab buddies. Having already experienced being out for a get through the rehab process without dwelling too much on what he was missing. They talked about their moms, their families and whatever else was going on in their lives, but they didnt discuss injuries. He helped me keep my mind off football, Young said The guards motivated each other in rehab. Young said whenever one of them wanted to take a day off, the other made him get out of bed. James suffered another setback in the spring, when he had to undergo his fourth knee procedure. He said he came closer than ever to quitting football in the aftermath of the surgery but decided with friends and family to keep playing. The surgery set James back, and he was not at what coach Will Muschamp referred to as a playable weight at the start of fall camp in 2011. He began the season on the scout team but ended up appearing in 12 games. He made his Ohio State in the Gator Bowl. While James weight was not quite where Muschamp wanted it, the coaching staff didnt write him off. Its always been a weight issue with James, Muschamp said. If he keeps his weight down, hes able to play. Hes able to sustain. Hes always been a very talented guy, and given the opportunity, which he did at the end of last season when he got his weight under control, hes been a productive player for us. Carla thought the limited playing time had In my mind and in my heart, she said, I think it was a blessing in disguise to give his knee some rest. James and Carla discussed applying for a sixth year of eligibility early in the 2011 season, but James was against it. Thinking shed never see her son play again, Carla was upset. Then she got some surprising news prior to what she night against Florida State. After improving physically throughout the course of the season, James changed his mind. [James] was like, Ive applied for a sixth year, and well see what they say, and next year, hopefully Ill be able to prove myself, Carla said. During Floridas win against Ohio State in the Gator Bowl on Jan. 2, the last game of what James thought would be his last season, he found out his request for a sixth year of eligibility had been granted. I was so happy for him because of how much he wanted it, Young said. It was like him getting a clean slate. Things began to fall into place for Wilson, who stayed healthy for an entire spring practice Its totally night and day, James said. He came into the 2012 season 11 pounds lighter at 323 pounds, a weight that Howard said makes him more effective than he has ever been. Hes been persistent, Howard said. He hasnt given up. A lot of guys would quit, or leave or fade into the fog. Wide receiver Frankie Hammond Jr. sees the results of James relentless drive every day at the locker across from his. Hammond, who James journey and believes it is a good example for inexperienced players who might encounter similar adversity. guys who are here that are going through injuries or going through tough times, Hammond said. On a second-and-15 play during the Gators second drive of the third quarter against South Carolina on Oct. 20, offensive coordinator Brent Pease called a screen pass to tight end Jordan threw a block on South Carolina linebacker Shaq Wilson that sprung Reed for a 39-yard gain. It was the kind of play his mom hadnt seen him make in years. I was like, Damn, James, Ive never seen you move that fast, Carla said. The win against the Gamecocks was the sixth of James seven starts this season. He has missed only one game, UFs Oct. 13 win against Vanderbilt due to an orbital fracture suffered in practice. Those who are closest to him savor every moment they can watch him play. After six American guard realize his potential. Im seeing the big James Wilson that Ive always loved, Young said.

CRIME CHRIS ALCANTARAAlligator WriterGainesville Police arrested a man early Thursday morning after he punched a paralyzed Marine veteran who wore a Halloween costume he thought mocked wounded soldiers. Police charged Christopher Dabney, 22, of 111 NW 16th St., with abuse of a disabled adult, which is a felony, according to a GPD arrest report. For Halloween, Daniel Priotti dressed form and fake blood on his face. At about 2:20 a.m., Priotti, a 35-yearold Gainesville resident and disabled U.S. Marine veteran, was in line at the Pita Pit off West University Avenue when Dabney, wearing pantyhose and a pink tutu, walked into the restaurant. Police said Priottis costume offended Dabney, who thought Priottis wheelchair was part Johnny Mnayarji, a 19-year-old Pita Pit employee, said the two men exchanged a few words before Dabney suddenly attacked Priotti. He really pulled his arm back and punched him, Mnayarji said. The second time (Priotti) got hit, he melted off the chair. Dabney then shouted at Priotti as he went outside to the parking lot. arrested Dabney and booked him into Alachua County Jail at about 3 a.m. Thursday. He was released later that day.

Instead, circular tables, interactive technology and open-minded professors will bring them together. The Active Learning Studio will be unveiled at 10 a.m. today in Matherly Hall, Room 120. The studio combines technology and collaboration, said Tawnya Means, director of Warringtons Center of Teaching, Learning and Assessment. In a traditional classroom, you sit in a chair, wait to talk and take notes, Means said. With active learning, its applicationbased. Learning is more on you as a student. She said students will work together to discuss business cases, solve problems and create products with team members. The studio allows distance-learning students to work with residential students in real-time. The room features cameras, microphones, a video production studio and web conferencing capabilities, according to a press release. Were really excited to offer this opportunity for both students and teachers, Means said. In order to take advantage of what the studio has to offer, teachers have to design their courses differently, said graduate student and instructor James Van Scotter. The learning studio encourages a teamwork environment, and if students are underprepared, he said, peer pressure now plays a part in getting students to keep up with their work. The professor grading things isnt the only incentive now, he said.UF business school unveils interactive learning studio ATTENDEES DISCUSSED THE BLACKFACE INCIDENT. SAMANTHA SHAVELLAlligator Staff WriterAbout 450 people, including faculty, administration and students, met for a town hall meeting Thursday to discuss last weeks incident involving two Beta Theta Pi brothers who wore blackface makeup to a social. UF professor of African-American studies Patricia Hilliard-Nunn presented the history of blackface. She said it originated in Europe in the 1600s to mimic African people and was eventually popularized in said actors exaggerated AfricanAmerican features and placed them in roles as musicians and dancers for comic relief. They were copying that culture Hilliard-Nunn said. After her presentation, students expressed their opinions and proposed ideas to solve cultural issues at UF. Leonard Thompson, a member of the currently suspended Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity, discussed his feelings about the lack of involvement the administration had in responding to the blackface incident. He said when his fraternity was suspended for hazing last year, an email was sent out to the entire Student Body about the issue. But so far, nothing has been sent out about this.

MICHAEL SCOTT DAVIDSONAlligator WriterPaper tombstones hung from the walls of La Casita on Thursday, but it wasnt because of Halloween. UFs Institute of Hispanic/Latino Cultures and the Mexican American Student Association hosted a free Dia de Los Muertos celebraThursday afternoon. Translated as Day of the Dead, the celebration focused on remembering friends and family members who have died, said event director Eric Castillo. The holiday is mainly celebrated in Mexico. Its supposed to be a day of joy, the 30-year-old said. About 80 people placed electronic candles at a rosemary-adorned altar, wrote notes for the deceased and painted each others faces with calavera designs, which are artistic representations of skulls. event had been held since 2007. Hilario Cabrera, a 20-yearold psychology and political science junior, enjoyed a cup of arroz con leche among a group of people eating Mexican food. He said the sweet, creamy rice pudding was his favorite dessert. Cabrera went to the event to pay respect to his grandmother, who recently passed away. He said he thought the event was a good way to raise the institutes presence in the community. It should be repeated every single year, so people know Latino culture is on campus, and its embraced more, he said. Castillo said the event offered a quick Mexican immersion experience for students. We educate people about cultures outside of UF, he said. I think thats impor tant. Contact Michael Scott Davidson at mdavidson@alligator. org. THE EVENT IS FROM 7 P.M. TO 10 P.M.

Even though the line is new, Kates no amateur. off her credit card debt, but when that was paid she kept sewing for fun. This summer, Kate moved her business to the vintage shop, which is owned by Loren Keldsen and his wife. Cori takes great vintage fabrics and remakes them into something totally cool, totally unique, Keldsen said. styles. spend much money on supplies because all the materials she used were old clothes. These days, she also buys from thrift and online stores. Nothing is brand new, she said. Everything is made from something that would have otherwise been thrown away. Her economical fabric choices keep prices low most pieces range from $5 to $50. Kate said she wont make anything she couldnt afford herself. Thats why we love Cori, Keldsen said. Even Saturdays event wont cost much. From the host to models to makeup artists, the workers are all Kates friends and volunteers. Allison Garnsey, 24, will emcee the fashion show. She said Kate designs because she loves it, not for money or attention. GOSH DARN targets shoppers who are environmentally minded and have funky senses of style. Right now, Kates goals are to continue to sell the line at the store and maybe move online in the future. I dont ever want to make it into a large business because it will lose part of the fun, she said. 4, ALLIGATOR FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 2, 2012 Sujie Wu / AlligatorCori Kate sells her upcycled clothing line, GOSH DARN, at The Eclectic Co.

Thursdays question: Do you understand the amendments on the ballot?62% YES 38% NOCitizen journalism can give you a voiceOn Wednesday, I gave two different presentations in two different classes on the same topic: citizen journalism. Despite wanting to give myself a root canal the night before trying to wrap up the work for both classes and having only slept for about three hours I realized I was delving into an extraordinary subject. If youve never heard of the term citizen journalism, dont worry; I hadnt either. Citizen journalism is any form of journalism in which average citizens take it upon themselves to actively investigate, report, and disseminate information and news. This kind of reportage takes many forms anything from blogging about a political rally to recording police brutality on a mobile phone. Unlike traditional mainstream journalism, citizen journalism is characterized by a lack of professional training and editorial standards. Its often freely accessible and interactive. It aims to break the stranglehold gatekeepers may possess in professional publications or outlets and it gives a voice to those who may not otherwise have one. This phenomenon, which is also referred to as participatory, public, democratic or street journalism, has played a major role in several events. The genesis of the concept is movie of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, 8-mm Bell & Howell camera. during all investigations of the assassination, and to this day, less, citizen journalism has only recently begun to gain moprovided public citizens with multiple new technologies that can be used to document events. Perhaps the key tool used today in the practice of citizen journalism is the cellphone. Cellphones, for instance, have played a very major role in Africa, where they remain the predominant technology in a region still struggling to expand access to computers and the Internet. In late 2007, Kenya suffered a major crisis after that years general election, during which several violent incidents took place throughout the country. This led to Kenyan citizens documenting these incidents via text messaging, which, in turn, led to a very effective online mapping tool that tions and allowed the public to see where violence was taking place. This movement is referred to as Ushahidi, whose model has been used in several platforms throughout Africa to this day. Cellphones also facilitated citizen journalism during the 2009 to 2010 Iranian election protests and during the Arab Spring. Mobile technologies allowed protesters to not only document the protests themselves and state violence that followed, but it was mobile technologies that allowed citizens to organize themselves to begin with, mostly through text messaging and through social media platforms such as Facebook. This trend also applied to Occupy Wall Street, when the movement through email. Once the idea spread online virally, Adbusters designed a simple but striking poster to promote the event, and as they say, the rest is history. These monumental events are only a few of the most notable examples of how citizen journalism has proven an effective way to challenge the status quo of our media, in which major corporations own our most trusted news sources and, as a result, control the conversation. You, however, dont have to accept this status quo. If and when you can, use the technology at your disposal to make a difference. Websites such as GlobalVoices, AllVoices, Littera Report and Examiner.com all allow average citizens to post reports on anything of note. Make your voice heard.

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 2, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 7 R omney has pretty much nailed down Florida, said Brad Coker, an expert pollster from Mason-Dixon Polling and Research. Unless something dramatically changes Romneys going to win Florida. With absentee and early voting well under way, a Tampa Bay Times poll shows Gov. Romney in command of the toss-up state. This sample pertains to the traditional I-4 corridor that stretches from Tampa to Daytona Beach, which generally decides the way Florida will vote. With momentum seemingly in Romneys favor, this poll indicated he has taken a 51 percent lead over Obamas 45 percent in the Sunshine State. Nevertheless, this poll directly contradicts CNN reports of Romney leading Obama by 1 percentage point. Regardless, Florida seems to be shifting in favor of Romney. If you have not voted yet, do not under any circumstances allow this to make you reconsider your vote or lead you to not vote. After all, the election is not just for the presidency. This apparent shift in support among Democrats and Republicans from 2008 to 2012 is also evident in the newspaper endorsement game. Not just on a national scale, several prominent Florida newsport from the president to his challenger. Romney leads 49 to 41 percent among independents, and it is estimated that about 4 percent of the electorate remains undecided. We should vote with the same or even greater intensity for our local and state elections as we do for the head of the executive branch of the federal government. We see the impact of these races on a day-to-day basis in our lives. Yes, the President of the United States is a remarkable and unique position that sets the agenda for our great arsenal of democracy. Yes, the President of the United States also dominates our news, politics and popular culture. And yes, being president is something that millions of young children dream of being when they grow up. However, unlike the president and even our representatives in Congress, it is our local elected leaders We see the impact of these races on a day to day basis in our lives. These local and state elections have a much more munities. From taxes to education to infrastructure, these issues should dominate our thinking. understand and work with businesses to generate the conditions and incentives needed to promote entrepreneurs, as well as job growth. Arent the economy and jobs the most important issues of this election? Then we, the voting public, ought to consider our local elections with the same interest and passion as we do our presidential publics. While the Electoral College system may limit the power of voters in certain states, one vote can dramatically impact a local election. Turnout is so unacceptably low to the degree that, at least in my hometown, an entire citys high school graduating class can shift an election one way or the other. However, unlike the president and even our representatives in Congress, for us every day. They understand the unique conditions of our towns and municipalities like no other. They realize our cities unique, individual needs from like parks to the necessary conditions for affordable housing. Being that so many leave these sections on the ballot blank or, in a non-presidential election year, do not even show up to the polls, each and every individual vote As such, take care and research local candidates. There is no excuse this year to not vote in local races. There is even less of an excuse in other election years where poor turnout leads to absolutely no line a ballot at home and mailing it. These are the circumstances that matter most, in which we, the people of the United States of America, notice an impact each and every day we go about our lives. Do not settle just voting for Romney or Obama, or fall whim to popular belief. Strive to research, and complete your entire ballot on Tuesday. After all, it is this type of grassroots change that truly does make a difference. Michael Schnur is an economics freshman at UF.

MICHELLE PLITNIKASAlligator Contributing WriterShandsCair, the air rescue and critical care transport system for Shands at UF, will broaden its horizons with two new helicopters within the next year. On Thursday, ShandsCair unveiled a new helicopter, ShandsCair 3, stationed at a small community hospital in Perry, Fla. ShandsCair already has helicopters stationed in Gainesville and south of Ocala. I live in Perry, and in a lot of emergency situations, people are transported to Shands, said Ellie senior. Investing this money is dities. In about a year, there will be a larger, more specialized replacement for the current helicopter ShandsCair has stationed in Gainesville. The new aircraft, called the EC155, will have larger cabin space and a range of about 360 nautical miles, said Staccie Allen, ShandsCair program director. The larger range will allow the new aircraft to transport patients from the Panhandle and southern Florida to Shands without the use of multiple vehicles or refueling. It will allow us to get patients The cabin of the ShandsCair 1 was sometimes too small for obese patients, the rescue of more than one patient at a time and patients connected to life-sustaining equipment, Allen said. Ed Jimenez, senior vice president hospital, said ShandsCair 1 is 8 years old and has seen about 4,300 hours but replacing it is a safe and proper approach to continuing Shands quality of care. Jimenez said Eurocopter, a global helicopter manufacturing company, is currently building the EC155. In the meantime, ShandsCair will use a rented helicopter in order to keep ShandsCair 1. The hospital plans to sell ShandsCair 1 when its replacement is available, Jimenez said. The transport system started in 1981 and has transported about 48,000 patients, Allen said. She described all of the ShandsCair vehicles as miniature mobile intensive care units. It is the highest level of critical care outside of the hospital, Allen said.

16, ALLIGATOR FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 2, 2012 David Carr / Alligator StaffForward Will Yeguete (15) attempts a shot in UFs exhibition against Nebraska-Kearney on Thursday. KATIE AGOSTIN Alligator Staff Writer With 15:25 remaining in the second half, junior Will Yeguete took the ball to the hoop and extended the Gators lead to 14 with a two-handed slam. After missing the last nine games of the 2011-12 season due to a fractured left foot suffered on Feb. 21, Yeguete was back on the court with a lot of energy on Thursday night. Entering the exhibition against Nebraska-Kearney, coach Billy Donovans biggest concern for No. 10 Florida was its ability to rebound. Donovan even said hed been disappointed by Yeguetes rebounding performance in the days leading up to the exhibition. Yeguete switched gears on Thursday, leading all players with 11 rebounds after averaging 6.3 per game last year. The forward also tacked on 20 points while hitting 80 percent of his shots as he led Florida to a 101-71 win against Nebraska-Kearney in the OConnell Center. Yeguete also hit 4 of 5 shots from the free-throw line after hitting just 35.9 percent of his tries last season. I give him a lot of credit, because I think the things I pointed out to him he really tried to address, Donovan said. Ive seen a different player (and) a different attitude. Yeguete added: I think we couldve done better (at rebounding), but personally I just wanted to go out there and at least get more than 10 rebounds. I want to prove [Donovan] wrong. I want to prove (to him) that we can be a good team and we can rebound. Although Donovan was pleased with Yeguetes defense, the rest of the Gators did not draw such high praise. Florida outrebounded its Division II opponent by just three. I was really surprised and disappointed ... with how we played defensively collectively as a group, Donovan said. I am extremely alarmed and concerned about our team on that end of the Despite the Gators shortcomings on defense, Donovan was impressed by the performances of UFs four freshmen. Freshman guard Michael Frazier II led the Gators with 21 points on 5-of-6 shooting from behind the arc in just 17 minutes. Freshman Braxton Ogbueze rounded on the team with 15 points. Together, the freshmen accounted for almost half of Floridas total points. The young guys, they were providing intensity, senior Kenny Boynton said. They were rebounding, they got shots and they also were scoring. Contact Katie Agostin at kagostin@ alligator.org. Junior notches double-double in exhibition Yeguete made 8 of 10 shotsDonovan
