Still, UF was well aware that its performance in a 23-0 win against Jacksonville State in The Swamp was not good enough. when the task at hand was to defeat Jacksonville State (6-5, 5-3 Ohio Valley Conference), an FCS opponent. But UF (10-1, 7-1 Southeastern Conference), ranked No. 4 in the latest BCS standings, has to improve quickly to beat Florida State on Saturday and keep its national championship hopes alive. Coach Will Muschamp said his offense is still not where it needs to be. (There are) some things we need to do better to be more consistent offensively as we move forward, Muschamp said. I know Ive been saying that. I know thats a broken record. But weve got to get better. Mike Gillislees 7-yard touchdown run midway through the touchdown for the Gators against the 108th-ranked defense in the FCS. The only team to score fewer than 23 points against Jacksonville State this season is 3-8 Southeast Missouri State. The list of teams that have scored more than 30 points against Jacksonville State this season includes Tennessee-Martin, Eastern Kentucky and Murray State. Of course we wanted to score more, guard James Wilson said. We felt like we were moving the ball pretty well, and weve just got to capitalize. ... Weve really got to come through next week and just plan for Florida State. The defenses touchdown output matched that of the offense. Senior linebacker Jon Bostic gave the Gators a 17-0 lead when he intercepted a pass from quarterback Marques Ivory and returned it 7 yards for a touchdown in the third quarter. (The play was) exactly what we practiced, and it was perfect, Muschamp said. Couldnt play it any better.Win sets up critical clashSEE FOOTBALL, PAGE 16 POLICE ALSO FOUND A FAKE ID IN THE ROOM.

Cheerleaders and supporters took to Twitter on Friday, saying the University Athletic Associations marketing department had banned them from all tumbling and stunts at practices, events and games. The decision comes after an Orlando Magic cheerleader suffered three vertebrae fractures and a broken rib after falling during a stunt at the New York Knicks game Tuesday. Martin Salamone, assistant athletics director for the UAA marketing and promotions department, declined to comment on the situation. According to a current UF cheerleader, the UAA instructed team members not to speak with the press about the ban. We know what we do is risky and that there is a one in a million chance we might get hurt, but thats why we practice, senior squad member Morgan Palmer tweeted as @MorganLPalmer.

4, ALLIGATOR MONDAY, NOVEMBER 19, 2012Brett Le Blanc / Alligator StaffThe Gator Cheerleaders pump up the crowd during the football game against Jacksonville State University on Saturday. The ban was made before Senior DayUFCheer. In another tweet, the telecommunication major wrote, This is unreal. This is unreal. This is not happening. This did not just happen. The decision was made just about 24 hours before Senior Day, the last opportunity for the fourth-year Cant believe I cant tumble out the team for my last home game, tweeted @TarinMoses, UF recreation senior and team captain Tarin Moses. Jason Merslich, a 27-year-old former Gators cheerleader, former team coach and still-involved volunteer said the ban was sort of a slap in the face. We do everything for them, he said. The only time we dont have anything to do is summer, and we spend it practicing. Merslich said a member of the UAA marketing department told members of the Orange team about the ban just an hour before Fridays volleyball game against Louisiana State University. The cheerleaders had to tell the Blue team members themselves. At Fridays game, Merslich said, team members felt weird and silly. They stood on the sidelines cheer was similar at Saturdays football game. During one of the timeouts, instead of doing stunts or lifts, they all just clapped and stood around, said 19-year-old aerospace engineering sophomore Kyle Krieter. Thats when me and all the guys I was with kind of noticed. They danced a little, too, but that was about it. ity and that they adhere to American Association of Cheerleading Coaches and Administrators guidelines. The coaches are very serious about it, he said. When people get hurt, its because theyre not following these guidelines. We never do things at a game that we havent perfected and practiced. GROUNDED, from page 1CRIME CHRIS ALCANTARAAlligator WriterAn Alachua County grand jury indicted an Alabama man Thursday accused of stabbing a Gainesville resident on West Univer sity Avenue in October. The grand jury formally charged Clifton degree homicide and robbery with a deadly weapon, according to the Alachua County Clerk of the Court. The indictment comes more than two weeks after police arrested Baxter in Alabama following the Oct. 26 incident. A Gainesville Police arrest report revealed more details to the events that led up to Robert Dockens death and Baxters arrest. At about 10:30 p.m. on Oct. 25, Dockens and his girlfriend were with Baxter in a motel room. Inside, Baxter was smoking crack cocaine Dockens had given him on credit. Shortly after midnight, Baxter left the room with Dockens to withdraw money to pay for the drugs. The men drove to the ATM at the Wells Fargo bank on North Main Street and the CVS/pharmacy on Southwest 13th Street, but Baxter could not withdraw the necessary cash from either of the ATMs. At about 5 a.m., the men went to the Bank of America at 1116 W. University Avenue to get money. A surveillance video showed Baxter and Dockens together at the banks ATM, police said. Fifteen minutes later, the video showed Dockens bleeding through his shirt. Additional surveillance videos showed Dockens running west on West University Avenue and collapsing in front of the Papa Johns Pizza restaurant off Southwest 12th Street. Within a few minutes, Baxter drove his van over to Dockens and stole his wallet. At about 5:20 a.m., a witness called police, reporting that Dockens was lying facedown on the ground and Baxter was rummaging through Dockens pockets. the bathroom before leaving again. Police later searched the motel room and found Dockens wallet in the bathtub. Meanwhile, an ambulance took Dockens to Shands at UF, where he later died from his stab wounds. Through police interviews with bystanders and surveillance videos, detectives pinned Baxter as a suspect. On Oct. 27, Dothan Police Department and charge, according to a GPD news release. Police extradited Baxter out of Alabama and booked him into Alachua County Jail at 10:18 p.m. on Nov. 1. As of Sunday night, Baxter remained in jail without bond. He is scheduled to make his plea in front of a judge for arraignment Dec. 12.

Soul of Syria will be held at 1 p.m. at SFCs Northwest campus gym. The event, sponsored by the colleges Arabic Cultural Association, aims to educate the public about the humanitarian crisis that is affecting the country. Killing, killing, killing happening all around the city, said Omar Al Ajlani, a 25-year-old Santa Fe business administration senior and event organizer. The government is killing everyone. The Syrian uprising started in March 2011 with people protesting for the resignation of President Bashar al-Assad, said Sameer Saboungi, an 18-year-old UF exploratory freshman. He said President al-Assad ordered the Syrian army to kill innocent civilians to show the government is superior. Saboungi, whose parents are from Syria, said he used to go there every summer but hasnt been back in a couple of years because of the violence. The government is using the army to collectively punish everyone, he said. Its just coldhearted execution. He said these camps are limited in food and water because they are overpopulated and no one is funding them. Currently, about 40,000 people have been killed from the I see videos on YouTube of children dying and corpses just lying in the streets, and sometimes I just shiver and cry, Saboungi said.Cultural group sheds light on crisis in Syria THE SERVICE WAS CRERATED TO IMPROVE CLASSROOM ENGAGEMENT. LISA DERUITERAlligator Contributing WriterA new learning platform called Top Hat Monocle is offering a new service to replace classroom clickers with cellphones. Top Hat Monocle was created to improve student engagement in the classroom and allows students, including those at UF, to text or submit answers on their cellphone, tablet or computer to questions while they are in class, said Ancer for Top Hat Monocle. Students are using technology theyre already familiar with. Theyre using their own cellphone, their own laptop, tablet or whatever. Its something theyre comfortable with, DSouza said, and that they dont ever forget. Top Hat Monocle was created as a graduate school project by its co-founders Mike Silagadze and Mohsen Shahini at the University of Waterloo in Canada, DSouza said. According to the website, they a simple polling system, and it has been evolving ever since. With the platform, which was created in 2009, teachers can conduct polls or quizzes, run interactive demonstrations, upload and according to its website. The use of the different features varies by class, DSouza said. The math and science faculties typically use the polls, quizzes and interactive demonstrations, while the liberal arts faculties use open-ended polls, questions and discussions more frequently. provements in attendance, retention and grades, he said. Todd Palmer, UF biology assistant professor, started using Top Hat Monocle in 2011 in his Integrated Principles of Biology II class, which has about 900 students. Since using Top Hat Monocle, attendance has increased by about 10 percent to 15 percent, Palmer said in an email. It has certainly given me an opportunity to establish how well students are grasping particular concepts, which in turn allows me to rephrase what Im teaching in the moment, Palmer said in an email. Ainslee Juarbe, biology junior, has used Top Hat Monocle for two of her classes, Integrated Principles of Biology II and Fundamentals of Human Nutrition, and appreciates the convenience of Top Hat Monocle over a clicker. You can pretty much count on everyone to have at least their cellphones in class, so theres no chance of accidentally forgetting your clicker at home and missing a point for class, Juarbe said. Juarbe has also noticed a change in attendance due to the use of Top Hat Monocle in her classes. Im a nerd, so I always go to class no matter what, Juarbe said. But I know other students only go to class for the Top Hat questions.Company releases clicker alternativeBaxter Students are using technology theyre already familiar with.

THE CHICKEN MADE A FULL RECOVERY. KYRA LOVEAlligator Contributing WriterMikal van Oene prepped her kitchen for surgery. Using as much antiseptic as possible, she transformed her dining room table into an operating table for her beloved friend. To make the experience as painless as possible, van Oene measured the correct dosage of Childrens Tylenol and blindfolded her before beginning the daunting task. Van Oene, a 22-year-old UF English senior, worked to save her feathered friend, Doctor Peeps, Ph.D. a task that came naturally to the steady hand of the musically inclined taxidermist and tattoo artist. After researching backyard chickens several months before, an ad on Craigslist sealed the deal: van Oene was the proud owner of four chickens including The Doctor. The tragic day had been like any other. Van Oene was hanging out with a friend while her four chickens roamed around in the backyard. Then, van Oene said she heard a swooping. Van Oene and her friend looked outside one of the chickens, a white silky bantam named Doctor Peeps in its clutches. In a matter of seconds, the hawk dropped The Doctor back down to the earth. It wasnt until van Oene was at the birds side that she saw the full extent of the damage: Doctor Peeps wing was dangling by a ligament and the bone was sticking out. Unable to get in touch with a veterinarian and having no car to search for an open clinic, van Oene went to www.backyardchickand advice for chicken owners, to see what options were available to save her chicken if any. Van Oene found an article on the website that detailed how to do an emergency amputation, which seemed to be the only viable option. At the time, we were kind of freaking ability, she said. With shears, painkillers, a syringe and other necessary tools at her disposal, van Oene and her friend performed surgery on The Doctor. She sewed the outside of the skin loosely to ensure the amputated bone was inside the wound and wouldnt swell if Doctor Peeps survived. A lot of it was ingenuity, and a lot of it was following the steps, van Oene said. Doctor Peeps now struts around with multicolored toenails and a diaper bedazThe road to recovery was tough, van Oene said. She had to constantly clean Doctor Peepswound and rewrap it, and she had to clean the cage twice a day. The Doctor was incapacitated for two days and wouldnt eat. But, van Oene soon noticed that The Doctor was beginning to heal and adjust to her new life with only one wing. She would slowly come up to us and cuddle with our leg, or shed want to be held, she said. Every time we moved out of the room she would kind of slowly walk out of her cage and into the other room. Now, Doctor Peeps life is normal enough that she can lay eggs, which van Oene said are delicious. She said Doctor Peeps has been laying Eggs or no eggs, van Oene still has fun with Doctor Peeps. We go to the park, we go to dances Ill dress her up in a tuxedo and we go on movie dates, van Oene said jokingly. MONDAY, NOVEMBER 19, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 5 Kyra Love / AlligatorMikal van Oene, 22, sits with her chicken, Doctor Peeps, Ph.D., outside her home.

Fridays question: Did you attend the rally?22% YES 78% NOTake It Like A Man No one likes a sore loserSo, like, where does the Republican Party go from here? It just seems like some pretty strong liberal wins during the election on Nov. 6. If Republicans want to stay relevant, theyll have to see what American people actually want and try to provide it. The Obama campaign was following the old playbook of giving a lot of stuff to groups that they hoped they could get to the African American community, the Hispanic community and young people, said Mitt Romney in a telephone town hall last week, according to the Los Angeles Times. In each case they were very generous in what they gave to those groups, he said. Uh, did you receive any gifts from President Obama? We were the gifts Romney referred to basic human rights and fair opportunities? Just saying. Its not like Obama tried to bribe people into voting for him. He just represented a party that aims to provide fair choices for its supporters. It means that Romney lost, and now he sounds super bitter about the whole thing. Sure, his concession speech was pretty humble, if not a little late in the evening. But he canceled the credit cards given to his staffers soon after, which stranded them around the country, according to www.jezebel.com. We had 20 Republican debates, that was absolutely nuts, Post. It opened us up to gaffes and to material that could be bates for a year, and the incumbent president just sat back and laughed. It is not our fault when you say stupid things. That goes for everyone. If you say dumb things all the time, just be prepared to be mocked for them. Its foolish to think people would agree with some candidates for certain things. Remember when Newt Gingrich wanted to make a colony on the moon? Yeah. Were in a big hole, said Sen. Lindsey Graham in an interPost. Were not getting out of it by comments like that. When youre in a hole, stop digging. He keeps digging. The bottom line is we were perceived to be intolerant on some issues. And tone-deaf on others, said Republican strategist Ron Kaufman, who advised the Romney campaign, according to the Christian Science Monitor. Why is everyone so surprised that the way the Republican party is set up today is very much misaligned with American culture? This is not the 1950s anymore, gentleman, so its time to get hip. Get with the program, fellas. Its just so funny that Republicans were very sure up until Election Day that they were going to win everything, and after the fact, they can speak very easily about why they didnt win everything. At least everyone, besides Romney, isnt too bitter about the whole thing.A moment of clarity for Eleanor RigbyYou may not remember this, dear apostrophic reader, but last year, our football team was not so good. In fact, there was a portion of last years Furman University game where it looked like we were not going to win against Furman(!!), and like so many of you, I turned the game off during the second quarter and went to take my dog on a long walk. Her name was Elly (short for Eleanor Rigby). She was the most adorable little basset hound you can imagine. She was also a ball of destructive energy. I have a hard time believing she was anything other than an avatar of Shiva whose eventual goal was to destroy the entire human race. On that afternoon (Nov. 7, 2011? Somewhere thereabouts. I remember the weather was that beautiful combination of crystal clarity, sunlight and 60-degree temperature that you out to a retention pond by my house and absorbed myself in thoughts of anything other than Gators football. Elly was not that old at this point. She was still a puppy, slowly building. Until that day, she didnt want to do anything but run and run and run above the ground, and the grass seemed to me vigorous and dancing under the cold light. earth, and a light rain either the day before or the day before that had made the dirt below delightfully moist; just enough that in bare feet my toes almost giggled with pleasure to slowly drag across the earth as Elly ran in asymptotic circles around me. Shed run a little ways away, notice that I wasnt following fast enough, then hurtle back toward me, a satellite of pure love and energy to my plodding planet. She was wearing a leash, but I let it drop because I knew she would never run too far from me: Ive mentioned that she was evilly destructive, but she was also scared to be far from me, and so, as she ran, I lost myself in thoughts. That day, Elly warmed my spirit. When she ran away, I knew she would return because she didnt know there was even another option. Me and my roommates liked to imagine Elly talking and complaining to us in a high-pitched voice. Wed make each other laugh for hours playing with her and saying things like, Um, sir, you may not have noticed, sir, but, um, my food dish is empty, and Id really like it if but if you dont give me Mr. Duck back RIGHT NOW, Im gonna chew off your ears while youre asleep. (Mr. Duck was her stuffed toy duck. She loved that thing, but it had no squeaker or wings left by the time we had to throw it away.) She loved toys that made noise most of all, especially if said noise was annoying and loud. Sweetbay had these them, but she destroyed them all in less than three hours. Shed look up at us with the saddest eyes and say, Um, sir, I hate to bother you, sir, but my toy seems to have stopped squeaking, and wed laugh, then throw another one at her to watch the gleam in her eyes as she tore the thing to bits. She was beautiful, man, just beautiful. Ellys dead now. She wasnt a year old before a snake bit her one day while she was playing or exploring. Im just thankful for the time I got with her. Save a space in heaven for me for the next time we meet forever, you beautiful, awful dog. Dallin Kelson is an English senior at UF. His column appears on Mondays.

MONDAY, NOVEMBER 19, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 7 The anatomical Homo sapiens has been walking Earth for nearly a quarter of a million years. On a 24-hour clock, we came about roughly at 23:58:43 in comparison to the age of Earth. Not until 500 B.C. did Pythagoras claim Earth was not the telescope was invented. I was alive when Americas universe is to be dense. I have always found it intriguing that humans have maintained a highly egocentric view of ourselves. Always convinced the greatest city lay at the center of Earth. Always convinced the sun and planets revolved around us. Always convinced we were at the center of all stars in the galaxy. Always convinced we had someone watching over our particular planet, our particular species and that we were the only living organisms, let alone intellectuals, in the universe. How humbling it is to lie on a grassy hilltop staring into a deep, dark sky, knowing we are one of a handful of minor planets revolving around an average star, one of the over quarter trillion (with a T) estimated stars in the Milky Way with likely more than that in planets. While knowing there are roughly the same number of galaxies in the universe as there are stars in the Milky Way, how can one remotely claim to believe that Earth is the only harbinger of life? I havent even begun to talk about the age of the universe. It is because of the Hubble Space Telescope that we know the universe to be 13.72 billion years old, humans existing with telescopes for 3.28 millionths of a percent of that existence. Countless stars and planets have been born and died off before Earth was even formed, all with the potential to hold the conditions for life to arise. The odds are ever stacked in favor for life to exist elseber of places for life to arise and do so in less than a billion years (in Earths example), there can only be one answer as far as I am concerned. We are not alone. Chemically, there really isnt anything special about us. We are made of water and carbon, mostly. Hydrogen, oxygen and carbon are among the most more combinations than any other elements combined. Ranking order of abundance of elements in the universe elements having been forged in the creation and destruction of stars. We are star stuff, as the late and great Carl Sagan put it. If you are not familiar with the Hubble photo called Ultra Deep Field, I highly recommend you look it up. This was a photo taken by Hubble after we pointed it in a very dark area of the sky for a long time. The result was nearly 10,000 individual galaxies and only a handful of lone stars in the foreground. If you were to hold the hole of a threading needle up into the night sky, everything the needle. Heres the catch. We know it takes time for light to travel a distance, and we know how far away those galaxies are (13 billion light years), which means we are essentially looking back in time to galaxies and stars that dont exist anymore. At any point in time, one of the solar systems within one of those galaxies could have held the right conditions for life to rise. These systems, having long been destroyed, could have been replaced with new systems with completely new conditions to bear chance for life to grab hold. Extraterrestrial life in the universe is inevitable with these sorts of odds. Do I believe we have been visited by aliens? No. Ian Timberlake is a columnist for the Iowa State Daily at Iowa State University.We are not aloneUWireIan TimberlakeUWire Thanksgiving is associated with spending time with family, appreciating blessings in our lives and, most of all, eating. potatoes, cranberry sauce, green bean casserole and make everyone eat until theyre miserable and ready to sleep for the rest of the afternoon. Last Thanksgiving, however, I passed up most of these goodies because of a lifestyle choice I made in May 2011. I decided to become a vegetarian, partially for the and vegetables, and partially because I love animals. However, most of what compelled me stemmed from a need to simply prove that I could do it. I hardly ate red meat, and I felt that I could give up chicken and tuna without much of a fuss. I chose not to forgo dairy and eggs, since animals arent harmed in the making of them (disregarding the idea that an egg is alive; Im not here to argue about rights) and to simply live as a lacto-ovo vegetarian. At the time, I lived in Hays, Kan., which made it difBecause I cut meat out of my diet, I tried to eat more peanut butter, eggs and protein shakes, but my diet still needed more sustenance. One store carried vegetarian imitation chicken breasts, so that made up the bulk of my protein. I dubbed this magical substance fake chicken. My family didnt agree with my lifestyle change. They constantly asked me when I was going to get past this phase and start eating with the family again. I grew up in a meat-and-potatoes household, so my mother had no idea how to feed me when I came home and simply substituted all the meat in our meals with cheese. Needless to say, I either ate a lot of salad or consumed the entirety of my calorie content via Velveeta. Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner proved to be the biggest challenges. My grandma forgot I didnt eat meat and made beef stew for lunch. I ended up scouring the fridge and throwing together a salad. At Thanksgiving dinner, I loaded my plate with the vegetables and fruits at the table, chocolate pie. Just as I was taking my last bite, my brother asked how I could eat something with pudding. This was when I learned about the sneaky foods that dont follow vegetarian diet guidelines. Foods like pudding, gelatin, marshmallows and Ramen Noodle seasoning are made of animal byproducts such as hooves and bone marrow. Even certain kinds of processed cheese are cultured with animal by-products. He explained this to me as I guiltily pushed my empty plate away, vowing never again to ingest pudding. I aimed to continue this lifestyle for a full year, but because of a rigorous exercise schedule, I began to lose too much weight, and my hair started to thin. I ended my vegetarianism last March to allay my familys concerns over my health, but I learned a lot in the process. For those of you considering giving up meat for an extended period of time, I offer a few suggestions. Taking a vitamin supplement can give you anything your body may be lacking during this period. You can also eat other foods rich in protein such as quinoa, beans, nuts or tofu. Watch for unexpected hair loss or weight loss, and, most of all, take care of yourself. By cutting meat out of my diet, I became more ener gized and less lethargic. But if done the wrong way, a vegetarian diet can have the opposite effects. For those of you making the brave attempt during the heartiest of holidays, www.allrecipes.com features a vegetarian Thanksgiving page that shows various ways for vegetarians to enjoy sweet potatoes, salads, cranber ry sauces and other delightful dishes. Turkey and gravy will just make your family sleepy.

8, ALLIGATOR MONDAY, NOVEMBER 19, 2012 ALEX CATALANOAlligator Staff WriterOn Friday, Santa Fe College biology professor Jerry Johnston and three other researchers sat on a dock, their legs dipped in Hornsby Spring. The groups plunge into the 72-degree water was a part of a continuing research series on turtles in the Suwannee and Santa Fe rivers. Hornsby Spring is inside Camp Kulaqua, a church camp owned by the Seventh-day Adventists. Their religion protects all living things, Johnston said, so the spring is relatively untouched. They have an excellent environmental ethic, he said. Part of their mission is to protect all of the life thats on their property, and that includes the turtles. Usually accompanied by a few volunteers, he pulls turtles out of the rivers and springs to collect data before releasing them. Fridays mission was to assess how the Authe turtle populations. Austin Cave, a former student of Johnston and a frequent volunteer, said he likes the untouched nature of Hornsby Spring. We like Kulaqua because its a place where the females can come up and lay eggs, Cave said. Theres a general rule across the park: Dont mess with the animals. And they man danger. The springs appear to be turtle nurseries, Johnston said. They provide a lot of vegetation for hiding, theres an abundance of food, and the temperatures may be optimal for growth. The turtle gathering is a catch-and-releasestyle hunt, he said, open to anyone who would like to join. Once in the tea-colored water, Johnston and the other three snorkelers combed the springs basin. When they see movement, they attack. From far away, it sounded like a dolphin chasing prey. The water churned white, and after a few moments, the scientists had another tiny turtle to study. After about two hours of turtle catching, the group set up a processing shop to take measurements and mark the turtles for fuwannee cooters, nine loggerhead musk, eight yellow-bellied sliders on their run. Johnston doesnt provide class credit or compensation for the trips, but he said publishing papers is a good way for students to get a competitive advantage for grad school and the job market. He said its also a good way to test out what its like to be a scientist. ing things, he said. Even if youre not a science major, people enjoy catching turtles by hand.

The team competed against seven others, including the No. 2 University of South Florida, according to the American College Cricket website. There was a bit of pressure on us to defend ourselves, said team captain Sudharsan Govindarajan, a 22-year-old second-year mechanical engineering graduate student at UF. The team practices Mondays and Thursdays for two hours at Lake Alice pitch, which is a rectangle of special material 22 yards by 10 feet at the center of plays on the grass. Most teams have a pitch of their vantage that helps a lot. Vice captain Harshul Kumar said the ball bounces differently on a pitch than on the grass.

COLLEEN WRIGHTAlligator Contributing WriterWith tears in their eyes, the Rev. Lawrence Reimer and the Rev. Sandra Reimer smiled and hugged as they thanked the congregation that packed University Auditorium Sunday morning. We can think of nothing more important that God has with more truth and light, Lawrence Reimer told the crowd. The Reimers, both 68, are retir ing after 38 years of service to the United Church of Gainesville. The congregation celebrated the Reimers ministry with a two-hour ser vice of celebration and recognition. The ceremony included live music, testimonies from longtime members and special presentations. We celebrate how Lawrence and Sandy blessed us with their friendship and love for 38 years, longtime member Sanford Berg said. The Reimers, who are married, began their ministry at the United Church of Gainesville in January 1974. During their time with the church, they dealt with growing budgets and the relocation and renovation of their building, which used to be where Burrito Bros. Taco Co. is today. The musical congregation per formed songs such as Lawrence Reimers Bump a Rump and Ala-la-la-la-la-la-la-le-lu-ia. The Reimers were honored for their social justice work in the community, especially when Florida reinstated the death penalty. Women of the congregation praised Sandra Reimer for her famous sermon Eve Re-Framed. We all grieve together for the end of this chapter in our lives, member Jenny Hill said. The Reimers sons, Chris and Matt Reimer, added comedy to the ceremony with The Top 14 things of being a preachers kids. Near the end of the ceremony, the Florida Conference Minister of the United Church of Christ declared Nov. 18 to be Larry and Sandy Reimer Day. After, the Reimers were presented with a $5,000 AAA card and a travel account with $11,000. John Schert, 60, has been a member of the United Church of Gainesville for 18 years. The Reimers performed his marriage cer emony, baptized his daughter and gave the memorial service for his late wife. They have a deep personal connection with a wide diversity of people, Schert said. The United Church of Gainesville, which began in 1965 with 62 members, accepts members of different faiths, beliefs, genders, sexual orientations and marital statuses. This is the kind of church people join who would never join a church, Schert said. A search committee is being astor to replace the Reimers, who were both working part time. After the ceremony, about 585 parishioners attended a barbecue picnic at Prairie Creek Lodge. Those not attending lined up after the service to say their goodbyes to the Reimers. I have such gratitude, and this is such a blessing, Sandra Reimer love. MONDAY, NOVEMBER 19, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 9After about 40 years of service, worshippers join hands and say farewell to the Rev. Lawrence Reimer and the Rev. Sandy Reimer, both 68, at University Auditorium. LOCALChurch says goodbye to dual ministers MICHAEL SCOTT DAVIDSONAlligator WriterGainesville residents gathered at Thornebrook Village and Millhopper Square on Friday for an evening of cheese spreads, chocolate wine and creativity at the Uptown Art Hop. Nine stores ranging from art galleries to chocolate shops kept their doors open until 9 p.m. for Gainesville residents to socialize, check out local artists and wander the area. Thats one of the reasons for the Art Hop: to make people more comfortable with art and make it nonthreatening, said David Arrighi, owner of Thornebrook Gallery. They can come in, have a glass of wine and talk about what they see. Maybe it will spark something. French vocals and classic jazz standards wafted from the McIntyre Stained Glass Studio & Art Gallery in Thornebrook Village. Inside, about 30 award ribbons hung over The Art Hop is a really fun way to get out and be exposed, said Mary McIntyre, who has run the gallery for 13 years. Gainesville is learning to appreciate the wealth of talent we have. Art Hop is hosted and sponsored about six times a year by the businesses, Arrighi said. We just had the idea this might be fun to do, so we got together and did it, he said. At Thornebrook Chocolate, attendees sampled chocolate-infused wines from miniature edible cups. Paula Wilkerson, a local chemical engineer and attendee, said she enjoyed the event because she didnt have to travel to a museum to Theres a lot of energy, creativity and mutual support, she said. All these businesses are independently owned. People dont know the creativity that brings to an area. For Malgorzata Deyrup, co-owner of clothing shop Malgorzatas, the Art Hop was easier than selling her creations at a street show. Deyrup opened the store with her husband last year after they both retired from teaching chemistry at UF. Now, she spends most of her workdays either running the shop or creating handmade and hand-dyed shawls, scarves and decorations that hang from the walls of her shop. Even if you are a scientist, you can still have an imagination, she said. Dyeing is a little bit of chemistry.

The students had to creatively design a solution, and thats exactly what they did. Kyle Jaeger, a 23-year-old construction management senior, said the award showcases UFs talented students. The team received a check for $1,500 and will travel to Reno, Nev., in the spring to compete in the national competition. the top construction schools in the nation and will hopefully serve as a message that a career in construction can be very rewarding, he said.Construction students win paves future path STUDENTS CAN EARN UP TO 25 GB OF FREE SPACE.

Brett Le Blanc / Alligator StaffCoach Will Muschamp reacts to a call in UFs 23-0 win against Jacksonville State. NOTEBOOK ADAM PINCUSAlligator Staff WriterDespite facing non-BCS opponents the past two weeks, Florida is No. 4 in the latest BCS rankings. With top-ranked Kansas State losing by 28 points to Baylor and No. 2 Oregon falling to Stanford at home on Saturday, UF is one step closer to its third BCS National Championship Game appearance in seven seasons. Florida jumped two spots from last week. which doesnt factor in the BCS, has Florida at No. 6. In order for Florida to reach the national title game, the Gators would have to beat No. 10 Florida State on Saturday and hope new No. 1 Notre Dame loses on the road to USC. Florida is expected to leapfrog the Fighting Irish if that scenario were to occur. The Southeastern Conference Championship Game, likely between No. 2 Alabama and No. 3 Georgia, will determine one participant in the title game. The loser will fall out of contention. Oregon, now at No. 5, could play in the Stanford the ninth-ranked team in the BCS standings at home. Another game for Or egon would increase its chances of jumping idle Florida. Brissett gets the start: Jacoby Brissett stood at the podium after Saturdays game in a position he hasnt ever been in as the starter on a winning team. The sophomore, playing in place of injured starter Jeff Driskel, completed 14 of 22 passes for 154 yards in Floridas 23-point shutout win against Jacksonville State on Senior Day. It was great, Brissett said of the start. It went well. Driskel missed the game due to a sprained right ankle, which the sophomore last week. Driskels status for Florida State will become clearer as the week progresses, coach Will Muschamp said. Injury update: There were more questions than answers when Florida completed its shutout of Jacksonville State in The Swamp. second quarter due to a left thigh injury. Right tackle Chaz Green left the game in Guard Ian Silberman suffered a torn labrum of the season and, most likely, spring practice. Missing from Saturdays game were wide receiver Andre Debose and safety DeAnte Saunders. Debose suffered a knee injury in practice on Nov. 1. [DeAnte] had another injury, Musbowl game. 2012 for undisclosed reasons. Contact Adam Pincus at apincus@alligator. org.Florida vaults to No. 4 in BCS standings after top two falterbe a team that was going to have to grind it out a little bit offensively. But grinding out a win will be day. The Seminoles lead the nation with 7.27 yards gained per offensive play and 3.67 yards allowed per defensive play. Think about how nuts that is nations No. 1 team on both sides of the ball. Turning this into one number, Florida States composite 2 (No. 1 on offense plus No. 1 on defense) is on pace to be by far the best among big-six teams in the past six seasons the farthest back I Alabama has a 9 (No. 7 on offense, No. 2 on defense) this year, and the next closest is 2009 Flor ida, which put up a 10 (No. 3 on offense, No. 7 on defense). But UFs answer to solving FSUs dominance is not, Air it out, or else. Florida needs to get locked in a defensive struggle by exposing a young and inconsistent FSU offensive line. Make this game the ugliest of all the ugly games. tion. Make sure the gap between your No. 3-ranked 41.6 net yards per punt and FSUs 101st-ranked 34.5 net yards per punt is critical. Be thankful theres only one Xavier Rhodes, and FSUs other options in the secondary have looked beatable. whoever is healthy enough to play tackle the power to block Bjoern Werner and Tank Carradine. Wait for E.J. Manuel to make a decision he shouldnt, then capitalize. Take care of the ball. defense over and over again until somebody slips and Mike Gillislee Most importantly, just keep it close. In a tight game, a broken tackle or a lucky bounce can be the difference between winning and losing. If Florida gets that bounce and a beatable Notre Dame team stumbles on the road against a talented USC squad, the Gators could be playing for the national title. Contact Greg Luca at gluca@ alligator.org. GREG, from page 13 But those goals have slipped out of reach since mid-October. urday, Gillislee had averaged only 58.8 yards per game and 3.3 yards ing touchdown during that span. Despite Gillislees recent struggles, Florida nose tackle Omar believes Gillislee is currently at his best. I remember having to tackle boy is running the ball hard. I been hes been getting better and better each and every week. Gillislees breakout season comes on the heels of three years with limited playing time. three seasons, Gillislee racked up 920 yards and 10 touchdowns on 145 carries. In 2012, Gillislee has 964 yards and eight rushing touchdowns on 211 carries. With a trip to the BCS National Championship still not out of the question, the Gators will turn to Gillislee to spur the attack against Florida States rushing defense, just 70.6 yards allowed per game. held in check or puts together another game like his performance against Jacksonville State, he has just one goal in mind. the game, Muschamp said.
