The state was 50-50 for hours after polls closed. Even after networks started calling the election for President Barack Obama, Florida remained persistently close. My stomach is in knots, said Carly Borden, a 21-year-old UF political science junior. But then, about an hour into Wednesday morning, it didnt matter. With Floridas electoral votes still in play, Republican nominee Mitt Obamas re-election. When the votes started rolling in Tuesday night, it became evident to supporters on both sides of the political aisle that every vote would indeed count. Ive personally called about 5,000 Floridians, said Katy Melchiorre, a 21-year-old political science and telecommunications senior and UF College Republicans chairwoman. So the fact it could come down to 5,000 votes is nerve-wracking. Alachua County went to Obama with 57.68 percent 69,219 votes. Romney earned 40.44 percent with 48,527 votes. The county became a blue island in a Republican sea as county votes were announced on blaring television screens in bars and homes across the city. MSNBC called Obamas victory, then CNN and Fox. Christina Ford, 20-year-old Gators for Obama co-chairwoman, pulled jected win on the Obama campaign Twitter. Someone popped a bottle of champagne and sprayed it over the crowd of teary-eyed Obama supporters. Ford, a political science and economics sophomore, and Gators for Obama co-chairwoman Rachel McGovern danced and embraced as My Girl by The Temptations blasted over the speakers and people joined in chants of Four more years. I know that hes going to continue to look forward to greater equality for women, greater equality for the LGBT community, said McGovern, a 20-year-old political science junior. Weve been working so hard for this.

With their eyes glued to the screen, supporters from the Alachua County Democratic Party watched and waited as the votes trickled in. In an instant, the bar jumped, and cheers echoed through the room. The commissions Democratic majority was secured for another term. Out of the three County Commission races, all of the seats went to Democrats: Mike Byerly, Robert Hutch Hutchinson and Charles Chuck Chestnut. With the Democratic Party sweeping the local races, some Republican supporters said they look forward to the state and national results. Some said they were disappointed the county election was a full win for the other party.

ecutive Committee chairman. I always hope for the best but brace for the worst. For some students, the Alachua County Commission may seem like part of government that doesnt touch their daily lives, but the commission has a hand in road construction, transportation projects and business initiatives, such as Innovation Gainesville, that impact UF. During the County Commission race, some candidates focused their vatism voice on the commission, and some Democratic candidates focused on being discriminate about slashing county programs. Byerly, the incumbent since he was elected in 2000, secured his fourth term on the commission with 62,169 votes 55.62 percent. His opponent, John Martin, a UF alumnus and former Hawthorne City Commissioner, gained 44.38 percent with 49,614 votes. Hutchinson, the executive director of the Alachua Conservation Trust, won his district with 64,579 votes 58.02 percent. His opponent Jean Calderwood earned 46,480 votes, securing 41.76 percent of the county. Chestnut, a former state representative and former Gainesville City Commissioner, won a Commission seat with 60,087 votes 53.74 percent. His opponent, Dean Cheshire, won 42.87 percent with 47,929 votes. Byerly said he is excited to be working with Hutchinson and Chestnut on the commission. Im feeling very good about having not just their perspective, but I think were going to have a good balance on the County Commission, he said. However, he said, the Democratic commissioners-elect will have Republican opposition. I think there is going to be some very interesting conversations, but I feel good about moving forward, Byerly said. Cheshire said that despite the loss, he felt great about his campaign and is happy that he can now spend time with family. This is the single hardest county to win as a Republican, hesaid. Its a Hail Mary no matter what. Contact Chris Alcantara at calcantara@alligator.org.

SAMANTHA SHAVELLAlligator Staff WriterAt its meeting Tuesday night, UFs Student Senate approved a resolution in response to the Oct. 24 blackface incident when two Beta Theta Pi brothers painted their bodies black at an off-campus social. One of the bills authors, Sen. Truman Williams, said the intent of the resolution is to educate the Student Body about the issue and give historical context. He said some of the recommendations made dur ing a Town Hall meeting last week should be addressed, but they may not be under Student Senates jurisdiction. Sen. Umair Asghar said resolutions are nonbinding and therefore can include demands. Sen. Morgan Vollrath agreed with Asghar. This could get buried next year, and never talk about it again, Vollrath said. During the meeting, Senate Cabinet Liaison Andrew Gar cia presented a diversity initiative. The initiative includes six Town Hall forums to discuss issues regarding different groups such as black/AfricanAmerican, LGBTQ, international, disability, Hispanic/ Chicano/Latino and AsianAfter the forums, a Diver sity Action Plan will be implemented. Senate President Christina Bonarrigo said that as elected representatives of students, the Senate has to respond to problems that may arise. She said she hopes the action plan will be released by Spring semester. ing, which will be about LGBTQ issues, will be Nov. 28. Contact Samantha Shavell at sshavell@alligator.org. Senate accepts blackface resolutionFewer students voted at the Reitz Union than in the 2008 electionty went to Obama. University of Florida as a whole is more liberal, and that attributes Alachua County going to Obama, said Nick Boley, a 21-year-old industrial and systems engineering senior. Im not surprised. But the national vote was another story. After Fox News called Obama the winner, a group of about 10 Gators for Romney students shared a round of Blue Moon beers as a couple of students shed tears at the Salty Dog Saloon. As the young Republicans waited for the Florida election results to roll in, they said they couldnt help but feel dismayed. Just to come up short like this, to all the people that have worked on this, is disappointing, said Frank Moehrle, 21-year-old Gators for Romney chair man and political science senior. As in the 2008 election, various groups emphasized student voting as essential in this race. For the Reitz Union, an all-student precinct, 3,432 people voted fewer than 2008s 3,923 votes. For Obama supporters, this night meant more than numbers. It meant months of hard work and support paid off. Ford spent countless hours on the campaign because, she said, she felt this was the best use of her time better than end-of-semester parties or even her college transcript. Ive given up my social life, grades, everything, and it was all worth it, Ford said. This will have an impact way past my college years.

The day after the election with ObamaAs I started to write this column on Election Day, polls were open and votes were coming in. By the time this is printed, very early Tuesday morning, we will most likely know who will be inaugurated in January as president of the United States. The next president will face a variety of issues from day one. From dealing with automatic budget cuts and tax reform, to managing a hyper-partisan Congress, the commander in chief will have to get to work immediately to By the time I wrote this, the campaign had long reached its climax and had essentially concluded. Disclaimer: I recognize that should I be proven wrong, this piece will be wholly irrelevant. If that is the case, do not hesitate to regard this as another Dewey defeats Truman moment. Approaching Election Day, I expected President Barack Obama to remain in the White House. gradually shifted toward Gov. Mitt Romney since the Florida. However, with respect to the Electoral College, Obama has too diverse a path to victory, while Romney must win the majority of swing states, including Ohio, which no victor in several election cycles has lost. Polls in Ohio shifted toward the President Monday, according to the New York Times. dous voter registration efforts and national organization has played a large role in his re-election. This effort as a failed incumbent in light of former President Jimmy Carter. The fallen potential of the Romney campaign could be attributed to the bitter Republican primary process in which the GOP nominee pandered to a volatile platform for far too long. Having been under constant attack for nearly two years, both Republicans and Democrats successfully put constant doubt of the minds of voters. As such, the president has an advantage as the incumbent. than being torn down by an extended nomination process, Obama seems to have been uplifted by a united Democratic party in addition to gradual progress with respect to the marginal improvements in the job market There is no time for celebration, however. The President must get back to work instead of remaining the campaigner in chief, as his opposition may label him. America has made progress, but the nation still has a long way to go to repair partisan divisions in rebuilding our economy. I hope that Republicans will work with President Obama. I hope that President Obama will work with Republicans. There is no denying that Republicans, like Romney, have tangible and meaningful experience to offer anoththe economy works, should not be overlooked. We can all agree that to unite the nation and solve our issues, we must compromise on legislation development. It would be encouraging to see the Obama administration and Republicans reach out to one another to Matthew Schnur is an economics freshman at UF. His column appears on Wednesdays. Hope and Change How Obama won our heartsTwas November the seventh, day after elections, America was represented, all of the sections! The votes had been cast in the system with care In hopes that Obama soon would be there. The children were nestled all snug in their classes, While visions of binders scared all the lasses. And mom in her apron, and I in my suit Had just settled down to look at our Halloween loot. When out on North Lawn, there arose such a clatter, I sprang from my desk to see what was the matter. Away to the window, I threw open the blinds To see tons of people standing in lines! First Sandy stole gas from the Jersey Shore, Then people who voted found it quite a chore. When, what to my wondering ears should appear, Tons of Americans who gave quite a cheer! Led by two eagles, and that cute dog Bo, Away they all walked, headed north to Washington So up to D.C., they all took a walk, To hard work or a challenge, they did not balk. From health care to human rights, Obama took a stand. Sasha and Malia must both be so proud; From Twitter to Facebook, the youth won the vote. We earned it, dear reader, take a moment to gloat. No need to be scared of the almost nightmare to loot. He spoke not a word, but went straight to work, And giving a nod, up the White House chimney he rose! He sprang to Air Force One, to his team gave a whistle, But we heard him exclaim before they had left, Many thanks, all you young people! Especially UF!Erin Jester EDITOR Sarah Kinonen MANAGING EDITOR Sami Main OPINIONS EDITOR Matthew Schnuropinions@alligator.org

WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 7, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 7 The Associated Press recently reported that, as a result of a four-year boom in oil production, the United States could surpass Saudi Arabia as the worlds largest producer of oil. This news comes dur ing a time when Americans are increasingly concerned about oil prices and stability in the Middle East. Energy independence has long been a rallying cry for politicians who claim to support American national security. This phrase has become synonymous with a variety of initiatives, namely the escalation of domestic drilling as embodied by the 2008 Republican campaign slogan drill, baby, drill, as well as ongoing efforts to sources. However, through all of this, the U.S. has, out of necessity, been forced to import a large amount of its oil. Though much has been said about the supply of oil in the Middle East, the largest exporter of oil to the U.S. is Canada, providing nearly a billion barrels of oil so far in 2012 compared to the 436 million barrels from Saudi Arabia. Nonetheless, U.S. dependence on foreign oil still poses a major national security threat, and the news that the U.S. has experienced its fourth straight increase in annual oil production provides U.S. planners with a variety of options. This should not be interpreted as an opening for complacency when it comes to investing in alternative energy sources. With an increase in domestic production, about 11.4 million barrels a day, the domestic need, 18 million bar rels a day, will increasingly be met by domestic production. This means that more and more money spent on oil will be pumped into the U.S. economy, with obvious However, this also means that, as oil prices drop and the fear of dependence on oil from the Middle East recedes, there will be a decrease in public pressure on politicians and the private sector to come up with effecdiscover new sources of domestic petroleum. As college students, the events that transpire today cant and long-lasting consequences in our adult years. and then replace it or become complacent with falling oil prices and rising independence, our choice will heavily weigh on our ability to sustain ourselves when the worlds oil production reaches its Hubbert peak. Therefore, we must be proactive to avoid the devastating effects of this peak to the worlds oil supplies. The breathing room that will be provided by greater independence and greater domestic oil production must be converted into research into alternative energies so that this breathing room can continue into the future. ed from international markets to the domestic economy must be used to supplement existing funding for research into alternative energy sources. The basic rule of capitalism is that when there is a demand for a product, the supply for that product will respond accordingly. ergy independence based on the short-term combination of petroleum and alternative energy sources is to continue to provide this demand on the market. ciency has increased. Hybrid cars have become more commonplace and solar panels, windmills, hydroelectric plants and nuclear reactors have increasingly taken a larger role in satisfying Americas energy needs. To complement the increase in research and public interest in alternative energy sources, we need a massive investment in Americas electric grid. The current To provide for the dramatically growing energy needs of the American public, and to supplant transtive implementation of alternative energy sources such as solar, wind and hydroelectric because of their need to from transporting electricity, the American electric grid must be updated and renovated to include the most adpower throughout the country. American oil production is increasing, and with this omy, its national security and foreign policy; however, this good fortune cannot be met with complacency but instead with an increased determination to extend the the future.

RACHEL KURLANDAlligator Contributing WriterIn light of the recent time change, the University Police Department urges UF students to use bicycle lights for safety. State laws require that a bicycle used between sunset and sunrise must have a front light visible from tor on the back visible from 600 feet, said UPD spokesman Maj. Brad Bar ber. Beyond the legal requirement, it is for visibility, Barber said. A nonmoving violation costs $104, Sgt. Kristy Maculan said. A moving violation, in which the bicya stop sign or operating in the wrong UPD swept through campus Monday night, Maculan said. Dur ing that time, police issued 52 written warnings for bike light violations. She said police also registered 26 bikes. Typically, students who commit a bike infraction on campus initially receive a warning, Barber said. Following incidents can become citations. Cyclists, like drivers, must follow the rules of the road, which include stopping at red lights and stop signs. A lot of people dont recognize that a bicycle is considered a vehicle in the State of Florida, Barber said. Kerrie Durham, a linguistics freshman, bought a bike light about a month into this semester. The 18-year-old said she shines a light on herself while riding at night so it is easier for others to see her. Loren Humphrey, an 18-year-old aerospace engineering freshman, said it is important that drivers and bikers can see each other while on the road. You should probably have a couple of bike lights at night, she said. And maybe dont go as fast. 8, ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 7, 2012 Benjamin S. Brasch / Alligator Staff SAFETYUPD urges students to use bike lights THIS WILL BE THE FOURTH LION FOR THE HOUSE. KATHRYN VARNAlligator WriterGroups of students who walked by the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity house Monday afternoon werent all talking about the Gators. Some gossiped about a different animal the missing lion. According to SAE President Nathan Kenney, the fraternity will replace Leo the lion statue. Leo has been outside the house for about 20 years. It had no nose or tail, said Kenney, a 21-year-old food science and human nutrition senior. Parts of it were held together by the layers of paint. He said the fraternity or dered its new brass-and-steel lion, which will be the fourth one outside of the house, from a company in China. It was supposed to arrive for Homecoming this weekend, but it was shipped through New York and was delayed due to Hurricane Sandy. It will be a little bigger than the previous lion and will cost about $8,500, Kenney said. SAE alumni raised most of the money, with a few of the funds coming from active members. Kenney said they plan to have a ceremony with alumni this weekend to honor the new lion. He said that Leo is a mascot for the fraternity and a way to differentiate the house from others. Its a landmark, he said. I tell people, Its the house with the lion in the front. Will Simpson, a 21-yearold industrial and systems engineering junior and SAE brother, said Leo guards the fraternity house. Its more of something that brings us together, he said. The brothers paint the lion for social events, football games and holidays, Kenney said. SAE plans to prime the new lion so the brotherhood can continue to paint it for events. Leo will be back in the front yard next week for all the students who are used to its majestic glance and bright colors. Its our unique way of desaid.

14, ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 7, 2012 VOLLEYBALL JONATHAN CZUPRYNAlligator WriterThanks to Ziva Recek, the Gators have to make more room on their mantel. The Southeastern Conference named Recek its Freshman of the Week for the third time this year and the second straight week on Monday after her career weekend against Georgia and Tennessee. Floridas leader in kills tallied 38 in the past two matches to bring her total on the season to 317. Recek, who is one of only three Gators to play in each of the teams 81 sets, has averaged 3.91 kills per set. That mark is the fourth-highest average in the SEC. Most of her production last weekend came in the Gators loss to the Volunteers on Sunday, when she recorded a career-high 26 kills and 20 digs. Coach Mary Wise said she hasnt seen a performance like Receks in a while. We havent had a player record 26 kills since 2005, Wise said. Ziva has been more than solid for us all season. Great players have that ability to go to another gear. er to record at least 26 kills in a match since Jane Collymore had 30 on Sept. 10, 2005. She also was the and 20 digs in a single match since Kisya Killingsworth registered 23 kills and 20 digs against South Carolina on Sept. 17, 2006. Receks record-setting weekend puts her in the same conversation as former Gators great and AllAmerican Kelly Murphy. Recek has three SEC Freshman of the Week awards as well as an SEC Offensive Player of the Week award, which mirrors Murphys accom plishments during her freshman year in 2008. Murphy went on to win SEC Freshman of the Year and was the consensus National Freshman of the Year. Before Recek, the 6-foot outside hitter, earned her latest award, Murphy and former All-American Elyse Cusack were the only Gators to have accumulated four confer ence honors in one season. As a team, Florida has racked up six weekly honors so far this season. Two weeks ago, Chloe Mann was the SEC Offensive Player of the conferences Defensive Player of the Week. The Gators have already eclipsed last years squad, which earned just four weekly awards. The last time Florida had an offensive player, defensive player and freshman of the week was 2010. Wise said she credits the play of the veterans that lead the team through the day-to-day grind. What we do is rely on the leadership of the older players, Wise said. They want to get back in the gym right away. Behind the leadership of Betsy Smith and Tangerine Wiggs, the Gators have racked up six weekly awards and the top spot in the SEC standings. Wise said Florida is close to where it wants to be at this point in the year. Our goal every year is to be playing our best volleyball at the end of the season, she said. I think we have a chance to do that.Freshman outside hitter continues to rack up SEC accolades Recek

We like it a lot, Driskel said. Its nice to see what theyre doing and that theyre going to stay in their base coverages. The up-tempo approach also gives UF an opportunity to get a few of its little-used offensive weapons more involved. Running back Matt Jones played three snaps and gained 5 yards on two carries during Floridas opening drive. Pease said the freshmans hands have made him a tation. The Gators also rotate receivers in the hurry-up offense. Rather than asking a player who ran a mage and be ready for the next play, the coaches can sub him out for a fresher option. Pease said the mechanics of running the hurry-up are relatively simple, especially given the time the Gators devote to it in practice. Its something that weve worked on a lot, Driskel said. We feel really comfortable with it. But the up-tempo approach comes with a possible downside. If Floridas offense rushes through a three-and-out, its defense will have to renity to catch its breath. This prevents Pease from running a hur ry-up offense if the opponents offense just sustained a long drive. If you go no-huddle and go threeDriskel said. You kind of have to get into a groove. Contact Greg Luca at gluca@alligator.org. Southeastern Conference clip since taking over in 2010. Peases history in Lexington, Ky., has fueled speculation that he might replace Phillips. Pease served as UKs offensive coordinator from 2001-02. Its a good program, Pease said of Kentucky. Theyve got great people. Theyve got a great program, and the facilities are good. Theyre committed to winning, and they have won. They won when we were there, when I was there on staff. They won when Rich Brooks was there. You can get good kids there. Sandys effect on Gators: The lights will not come on at Josh Evans house. More than a week after Hurricane Sandy hit New Jersey, Evans family is without power. It was very scary, he said. Evans had the storm on his mind dur ing Floridas 14-7 win against Missouri Evans led the Gators with 12 tackles and grabbed a fourth-quarter interception that ended the Tigers last-ditch effort to tie the game. I kind of had a chip on my shoulder this weekend to go out there and play harder for my family and the struggle theyre going through, Evans said. The lives we lost back in New Jersey, New York (and) Connecticut had me a little emotional over this weekend to go out there and just play my heart out. Its been tough. Also affected by the storm were the families of Dominique Easley of Staten Island, N.Y., and Jordan Reed of New London, Conn. Buck linebacker Lerentee McCray said he and Easley talked about the junior defensive ends family and the condition of Staten Island in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. They went a couple days without like that. Stuff that we went through a couple years ago when the hurricanes came through. Sturgis may be limited: Caleb Sturgis (right ankle) is probable for Saturdays game against Louisiana, but the extent of his role remains uncertain. Due to swelling on Sturgis kicking ankle that popped up during practice last week, the Gators may reduce the Lou Groagainst the Ragin Cajuns. Usually, Sturgis Its something that [special teams coor dinator D.J. Durkin] always lets us know, Pease said. Theres communication on the headphones on where we need to get to. So, it varies. We know what Calebs range is consistently, but if theres wind, theres wind. If its a different kicker, its probably not as far as Calebs. souri. Brad Phillips handled kickoffs and fourth quarter. Headset jargon: When asked about his Saturday headset conversations with Muschamp, Pease laughed. Muschamp tones down his sideline demeanor when talking with coaches during games, according to Pease. Hes good, Pease said. He listens, and he might say things here and there and give us some clues on what were seeing. Some coaches chat a lot, but he doesnt do that. Sometimes I dont even know hes there. Contact Joe Morgan at joemorgan@alliga tor.org. UFs win against South Carolina, with a few forced turnovers giving Florida the edge from the get-go. For that reason, the offense needs to get out of its comfort zone the next two weeks and throw the ball at least half of the time. The Gators have run the ball on 68 per cent of their offensive plays this season. If the coaches feel that imbalance will serve them best against No. 8 Florida State on Nov. 24, then that is what they should do the next two weeks. However, that is not likely the case. The Seminoles boast the nations topranked overall defense, which is third against the run. FSU has consistently taken away the oppositions ground game more than any other team Florida has faced this season. Not developing a better passing game will only make it easier for the Seminoles, who wont hesitate to move their safeties close to the line of scrimmage. The thing it really does is make it tough on your receivers, because they have to block those guys that are so much lower, offensive coordinator Brent Pease said of safeties in the box. Or it makes it easier on them that were going over the top of them like we did on the one to Frankie (Hammond Jr.). Pease was referring to Hammonds negated 43-yard touchdown reception in the fourth quarter of Saturdays 14-7 win against Missouri. The completion shows that even though the Gators struggle to pass block and their talent at receiver is average at best, they can still make plays in the air. The unit just hasnt done so often. Unless the situation dictates that a run is the only logical option, Pease should focus on getting quarterback Jeff Driskel and the possible. Even though the end-of-season showdown with the rival Seminoles is more important than these two games, the Gators probably dont have many cards left to put on the table. If there are a few plays that havent been used, then by all means save them. But everything Florida has the 118th-ranked passing offense in the country. Conversely, Louisiana ranks 118th in pass defense. If there was ever a week for the Gators to go all-in and work through their passing struggles, this is it.

16, ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 7, 2012 David Carr / Alligator StaffCoach Billy Donovan signals to his team during Floridas 101-71 exhibition win against Nebraska-Kearney on Nov. 1 in the OConnell Center. CASEY PRATHER HAS SUFFERED TWO CONCUSSIONS IN THE PAST NINE DAYS. LANDON WATNICKAlligator WriterAfter a concussion knocked Casey Prather out of UFs scrimmage against Rollins on Oct. 27, he suffered another concussion on Monday. The junior forwards second head injury in nine days occurred when Patric Young elbowed him during a rebound attempt in practice. It was just a normal play, Young said. I just jumped for the ball, and I guess I hit him. Prather will miss No. 10 Floridas season opener against Georgetown on Friday in the NavyMarine Corps Classic in Jacksonville, coach Billy Donovan said. Donovan added that Prathers second concusHe has to go through a series of baseline tests, Donovan said. I felt like with Caseys this game. In 2011-12, Prather averaged two points and 1.8 rebounds per contest. He averaged only 9.5 minutes in 28 games last season but is expected to have an increased role this year once healthy. Prather missed UFs exhibition against Nebraska-Kearney on Thursday before doctors cleared him to rejoin the team in practice on Monday. wing while redshirt senior Mike Rosario struggled in Prathers absence. Frazier scored a team-high 21 points on 8-for10 shooting after coming off the bench. As the starting small forward, Rosario recorded four turnovers against four points, going 0 for 3 from beyond the arc. With Rosario and Frazier as its primary options at small forward, Florida will have to play small at times against a long and athletic Georgetown frontcourt. Four of the Hoyas projected starters are at least 6 feet 8 inches tall. Donovan has also entertained the possibility of playing Will Yeguete, Erik Murphy and Young together. Donovan said he is worried about how such a lineup would function offensively. We have to look at that now just because of Caseys situation, Donovan said. We have not done that a lot.Junior forward to miss opener following second concussion
