MCKENZIE DOLL and BRIANNA WAGNERAlligator Contributing WriterThe UF mens club rugby team is heading to Philadelphia to compete against the top collegiate rugby programs in the nation this weekend. The team will play in the USA Sevens Collegiate Rugby Championship. It will be broadcast on NBC Sports, and UFs team is scheduled to compete against Life University, the University of Delaware and the University of Texas. Its the biggest chance we have to let people know who we are and that were a serious contender nationally, said 22-year-old UF journalism alumnus Stephen Sheehan. If UFs team is one of the top two to come out of its pool, the team will continue into the championship round Sunday. Last year, the team walked away with the Challengers Cup. We felt we could win last year, and we know we can win this time, said 21-year-old UF health science junior and team president Joseph Migliore. The style of rugby being played is called 7s, which is a hard-hitting, fast-paced game with two seven-minute halves and seven people per team. I think the team we want to beat the most this year is Delaware because they beat us by one try last year in what we thought was a bad call, said 20-year-old UF business junior Ryan Gilbert. Migliore said each match will be tough. But the team has watched their competitors game tapes from previous years and practiced methods to overcome them. Our camaraderie is probably our greatest strength, Gilbert said. If the person next youre going to get hurt. So we depend on each other.

But for many the decision was bittersweet openly gay scout leaders are still banned. The resolution also reinforces that Scouting is a youth program, and any sexual conduct, whether heterosexual or homosexual, by youth of Scouting age is contrary to the virtues of Scouting, according to the news release. A change to the current membership policy for adult leaders was not under consideration; thus, the policy for adults remains in place. Joseph Antonelli, 70, founder and president of Gainesville Community Alliance, said allowing in gay youth is a step in the right direction, but forbidding gay adults sends the wrong message to children. Antonelli said it was wrong for a scout to have to feel like his two gay dads are inappropriate or not good enough to be scout leaders. I think thats completely B.S., he said. And I dont mean Boy Scout. Although he was happy Gay Boy Scouts OK, but leaders notNBC Sports will broadcast it Our camaraderie is probably our greatest strength. If the person hurt.

The 17-year-old tiger named Ty underwent the procedure Wednesday at a veterinary center in Clearwater. Doctors said in a statement that they safely removed the 4-pound obstruction from Tys stomach.

about the progress, Antonelli said the acceptance of gay adults by the historically conservative association will likely not come in the immediate future. The Boy Scouts of America said its mission would not be plans for further review on the matter. Going forward, our Scouting family will continue to focus on reaching and serving youth in order to help them grow into good, strong citizens, the news release said. Americas youth need Scouting, and by focusing on the goals that unite us, we can continue to accomplish incredible things for young people and the communities we serve. However, Antonelli said if leaders are teaching the boys integrity, honesty and to be good people, it is time to come to grips with full equality. Sterling Davenport, a UF alumnus and Eagle Scout, came out to his parents in 2012. He said he was surprised and happy about the lifted ban. Because the Boy Scouts of America are funded largely by conservative organizations, Davenport said it was a courageous decision. It takes effect Jan. 1. Although he said the decision was a step forward, Davenport said the battle hasnt been won. Its a nice idea to let the youth in, the 24-year-old said. But to let them in and tell them its not okay once they turn 18 is not the right message to send. As a gay man, Davenport said he wasnt the model Boy Scout in the eye of the association. I felt like I earned my rank and I wear it proudly, but I felt like I had to do it by hiding a part of myself, he said. I dont want any other youth to feel like they have to hide who they are to learn lessons about doing service to others.

The company has managed to set itself apart from other arms manufacturers because its fully functional for free to anyone with an Internet connection and access to the mass distribution of them via Internet downloads, Wilson has been dubbed one of the Most Dangerous People in the World by www.wired.com and National Security blog, Danger Room. The only people who should really consider Wilson and company dangerous are law makers and anti-gun enthusiast on Capitol Hill. In wake of the 16 mass shootings that took place in 2012, President Barack Obama initiated 23 executive actions aimed at curbing gun violence, including universal background checks, increased regulation of large capacity magazines and a resurrection of the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban. Despite mounting evidence that gun laws do not curb gun violence, such as the Center for Disease Controls dubbing of 51 constrive to violate the Second Amendment and destroy private property rights. of all the controversy surrounding them. Wilson and company have utilized 3-D printers and thermoplastics to make and are completely untraceable by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives since they can be manufactured at home without a serial number.

Steve Israel proclaim that and calls for an extension of the Undetectable Firearms Act the Transportation Security Administration currently employs Advanced Imaging Technology that can safely screen passengers for metallic and nonmetallic threats and is used in more than 160 airports nationwide, according to its website. Israels blatant ignorance and campaign against Wilson and Defense Distributed is a testament to the states desire to legislatively thwart technological, societal and political progress. While Republicans and Democrats spew age-old gun control rhetoric at one another, Wilson has managed to transcend the left versus right political paradigm and add a new dimension to the gun control debate. The idea that any complishments and the issue of intellectual property rights litical Pandoras box. Wilson has put the spotlight on the striking authoritarian similarities between the left and right and feels that American politics have grown stagnant. In an interview with Glenn Beck, Wilson stated, I dont believe in Romney vs. Obama. I believe in real politics. That is a real political act, giving you a magazine and telling you that no one can take that away. That wasnt true maybe two weeks ago. Wilson has become the poster boy for the idea that we state cannot halt human progress.

Emmett Ryan is a Santa Fe political science sophomore. His columns appear Tuesdays.On Wednesday, Attorney General Eric Holder made edgement of the killing of American citizens by drone strike. This announcement, via letter, was sent out only a day before the president was set to give a speech on defense, In the letter, Holder admits to Congress that four Americans have been killed by U.S. drone strikes since 2009. One of those killed, Jude Kenan Mohammed, was still on an FBI wanted poster even though he was said to have been killed in 2011. The FBI has since taken the poster None of the citizens mentioned in the letter received any due process. Though it may be interpreted as unconstitutional, Holder defended such conduct in his letter: It is clear and logical that United States citizenship alone does not make such individuals immune from being targeted. Then, on Thursday, the president gave his speech. He announced that he would be restricting the use of unmanned drone strikes and handing over control of the drones to the military. He also announced in the speech that he would be making steps to close the military prison at Guantanamo Bay. The president, after every speech, can leave one with the feeling that he is genuine in his intentions and that he means well. Yet, we wonder if he knows what his legacy is shaping up to be. honeymoon with the president. Since then, the honeydefense policy tools have been drones. As a matter of history, Obama may very likely be remembered most strongly as the drone president. Despite his Nobel Peace Prize, he will almost certainly not be remembered as a president of peace. Though this move with Guantanamo might be an indication of good things to come, we wonder if he will actually accomplish anything. As a candidate for president, Obama promised to close the military prison. Earlier this year, closing the prison. And now he has taken a renewed interest in Guantanamo, perhaps because of the hunger strike. Why is his word on closing the prison so much better the second time? As for the moral repercussions of all of it, Obama may have a lot more than the lives of four citizens on his conscience if the next president decides to continue with the precedent of killing American citizens.Game of Drones: What will Obamas legacy be?

TUESDAY, MAY 28, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 7 Robbie Rogers is an openly gay athlete who plays soccer. In European countries, this would mean hed get a few chants dedicated to him from fans of opposing teams. In America, it means hes making history. At the same time, its slowly becoming not a big deal. I mean, not a big deal with regards to news stories as a whole. For sports and LGBTQ communities, its a huge deal. This is a very interesting development. With Rogers and Jason Collins announcements that made them leagues Major League Soccer for Rogers and the National Basketball Association for Collins the theme of those who didnt like it was not clear and included unbridled bigotry for the most part. The battle cry of the resistance was, I dont want to hear it, or He should keep it to himself. This pleases me because it means pure hate is being phased out as unacceptable in any form. Were improving as a society. When I use society, I mean both American society and global society. While orientation, the Union of European Football Associations has adopted an anti-racism measure. That measure calls for quick and severe sanctions concerning racist incidents. The Internet is also assisting on these fronts. To paraphrase a www.cracked.com column, the Internet community will not stand for injustice. Every incident has a chance to go viral if morals are ignored. With sports being streamed over the Internet now more than ever, we have on our hands an incredible combination of tools to combat what we see as wrong. Its like having a hammer and a screwdriver fused together in a functional way that also supplies its own nails and screws. Some will abuse this, but these people are like those who injure themselves as a result of not reading warning labels. Ive said this in previous columns, but sports are meant to transcend the everyday world. They give us respite from our fears, failthrough these athletes, and some audience members even go on to follow in the athletes path. Sports should be our utopia not another breeding ground of problems. This is why despite not being a big deal, gay players coming out while active and getting a chance to play is a big deal. Sects of American culture glorify sports to the point of being religious case in point: college football anywhere in the South. How like a benevolent god, gracing the people and helping us solve our problems. The governing bodies of sports are run by people, though. They are not infallible and are even inclined at times to stray from what we would consider a good path. Corruption is rampant. Cheating is overlooked. else to always be there for us allowing us to engage in the least of activities. Couch potato activism on social media only goes so far. If we truly want to overcome the issues that plague us, we must become agents of change ourselves. Weve been given a springboard by these athletes. They can become catalysts as all of us work to improve the world we live in. Its a daunting task but so is Mike Foleys reporting class. I intend to face both challenges headjoin me in the undertaking of improving, if not reforming, any and all communities that we are a part of.

HANNA MARCUSAlligator Contributing WriterAlthough the square plot of land near the intersection of 13th Street and West University Avenue is vacant, its been stirring up dialogue among Gainesville residents for months. Miami-based development company the Swerdlow Group has been working with the City of Gainesville to legally amend the citys comprehensive plan to allow construction of a new multi-story residential development called University Corners. Via two proposals, the company asked Gainesville to adopt two separate ordinances to rezone the property to allow a taller building something the current zoning wouldnt allow. Under current law, they could do the same project, but not quite as big, said City Commissioner Thomas Hawkins. Gainesville is going to grow. Were trying to make it grow, but we only have a certain amount of space. We need to allow people to build taller buildings to accommodate for that. A multi-story building would offer more jobs and more opportunities, Hawkins said. Because of the location and the number of people that could reside at the University Corners building, Hawkins said, costs such as transduced for residents. However, not all Gainesville residents are ready to support the project. Lisa Limpert, a 58-year-old Gainesville resident, said she does not support the proposed ordinance. Limpert, who has lived in Gainesville for 47 years, said the building, which could range from eight to 13 stories, will not only ruin the aesthetics of the area, but also trian situations. The intersection of 13th Street issues as it now stands, she wrote in an email. Adding a huge retail and residential complex on that corner without considering the impact Tom Rider, retired owner of Goerings Book Store, agreed the project would be a bad move for Gainesville. Im proud that I live in a neighborhood thats really come back after years of neglect, he said. But I see this project as a step in the wrong direction. Its the wrong direction because of the parking garage included in the plans for the complex, Rider said. Adding the garage without a careful look at the impact of parkgenerates could interfere with trafThe garage could also block sunlight from nearby buildings, he said. project would come through the citys Community Redevelopment Agency, Rider said, the project could be risky for taxpayers. Its one thing for developers to decide that maybe something will work, but theyre not taking the risk, Rider said. Theyre making sure its the city, and ultimately city taxpayers, that are taking the risk. The City Commission must pass both proposed ordinances so the building can be constructed according to the developers plan. The commission hasnt determined when it will vote on the ordinances. If the vote is not in favor of the two new ordinances, the developer must re-evaluate its building plans to comply with current zoning. But for now, the proposed project remains in the negotiation stage. We raised some concerns about sidewalks and building appearance, and (the developers) did a good job responding to requests, Hawkins said. We continued the ordinance, which basically means we give the developer time to talk to the neighborhood and come back to us later.

On trips, Garcia-Bengochea said, the horses typically dress up to visit families, sporting sparkles in their manes and tails. She said she expects the horses visit to Oklahoma to help the healing process for individuals in the community. One time, a child with a brain tumor asked to see a horse. When the horse came into the childs room, the child said, She can Gentle Carousel started about 15 years ago, originally working with severely abused children.

The partnership started on Valvisit to the hospital was so successful it became a weekly occurrence, Gilbert said.

Now, shes going online. count @UF_SBPrez and blog www.studentbodyprezuf.blogspot.com for the newly elected 22-year-old. give readers information about her work to impact the UF experience. Bonarrigo said she started a blog during her Spring campaign and received more than 7,000 views the week it launched. But she wanted to change its focus to be more interactive. I thought, Why not create a Student Body President blog where I could highlight what I do as Student Body President, what my role entails and also create a personal aspect to better connect with students? Bonarrigo said. She said she meets weekly with her press crease that frequency by the time Fall starts. If it is something that students interact the number of times we do it per week, Bonarrigo said. So far, she has posted three times: about Preview, the 2013 state legislative session and Summer A. Bonarrigo said the blog aims to merge her personal and political lives to engage students. UF nursing student Christine Farina, 22, said that goal is good. It depends on how hard shes willing to work, she said. I know a lot of students are kind of frustrated with the way Student Government is run.

LOCAL CATHERINE HARRISAlligator Contributing WriterHundreds of adoptable animals will be hoping for homes this weekend at the PetSmart on Archer Road. largest national free pet adoption week in hopes of sparking an interest in people to help animals in need, according to its website. cluding Puppy Hill Farm, Animal People Inc. and Helping Hands Rescue, will take part in and Sunday. In Gainesville alone, the number of homeless animals has begun to grow. Wendy mal People Inc., said many owners do not spay or neuter their pets. Some people do not have the funds or the offers no mobile services for reduced rates or free clinics allowing veterinarians to come to the owner, but there are stationary clinics like St. Francis Pet Care. having litters of newborns, owners usually are not equipped to handle large amounts shelters, or in some cases, leave them on the streets. A black Labrador, pointer and Rottweiler mix named Sadie gave birth to a litter of 14 puppies before the age of 2 and was put up for adoption by her owners. in the pound. Older dogs are harder to adopt out because they sometimes require extra care and have a shorter life span. Kristina Swanson, 23, a nursing student at UF, adopted Sadie from PetSmart in September. I fostered Sadie for a week before deciding to adopt her, Swanson said. I couldnt stand the idea of not living with her or the idea of her being put back in the shelter and not being loved by someone. When animals are picked up from the streets, they are held for seven days. If they are not claimed within that time, they are put on the list for euthanasia if they are deemed unadoptable, said Luke Smith, a volunteer at Puppy Hill Farm Animal Rescue. For every animal adopted from Puppy Hill Farm, it allows us to go to the pound and get one of the animals from the top of the euthanasia list to bring to our shelter, said the 20-year-old UF animal sciences sophomore. Katie Ronzon, 21, a UF applied physiology and kinesiology senior, said that breeders typically inbreed the animals, which causes problems down the road. In the long run, adopted animals tend to be healthier and have less medical issues than purebreds do, Ronzon said. Ronzon adopted a 2-month-old American Staffordshire terrier and pit bull mix named Stella from the Jacksonville Humane Society. save a life but only for the right person. commitment, regardless of the animal or the age, Ronzon said.

CHRIS PEREIRAAlligator Contributing Writergelina Jolie whose aunt died of cancer Sunday recently created a buzz after she underwent a preventive double mastectomy, and some Gainesville residents have reacted positively to the superstars decision. wrote last week, she explained that she decided to have the procedure after learning she carried a mutated gene, BRCA1, that increases the risk of developing cancer. Lisa Brown, a genetic counselor at UF Health Cancer Center, said she applauds Jolies decision. I think its great that Angelina had the preventative surgery, Brown gery itself can reduce breast cancer risk by 90 percent, and being in the spotlight brings attention to a topic people otherwise would not have thought about. Branden Stanford, a 21-year-old UF food science and human nutrition junior, agreed that Jolies decision was positive, but he said it wasnt heroic. She did what she had to do to make sure she didnt get it, he said. She is up there in age, so its better to do it now than to get it and go through chemotherapy when youre 60. old architect and a contributor to the book Just a Lump in the Road , which contains memoirs from young breast cancer survivors, said Jolie made the right decision by opting for preventative surgery. She has chosen to take control of this situation versus it taking control over her, Palmisciano said. I feel by having a gorgeous lady in the public eye, she is doing the right thing to come forward, educate and encourage men and women to be tested for the gene.Locals react positively to Jolies preventative cancer surgeryJolie

I played on some good Little League baseball teams the highlight of my notso-memorable athletic career. Of all of my friends growing up, I was the only one not athletic enough to play a sport in high school. friendship again when I joined a fraternity. I believed that was all I needed. However, I found that I was part of a different, yet equally passionate group on Feb. 21, 2012. A day earlier, in an infamous incident that any student who is at least a junior-tobe would recall, members of the Unite Party threw away more than 250 copies of the Alligator. They did so because the paper ran a front-page story about Will Muschamp endorsing the Students Partys vice presidential candidate, who happened to be one of his players. As a second-semester writer, I hadnt developed a deep connection to the Alligator yet. I knew I liked my fellow sports writers, and the students in the news department treated me well. But as one of just a few members of the Greek community on staff, the incident put me in an awkward situation. My employer was suddenly in the middle of a major controversy with the Greek-powered party. Despite the Alligator endorsing the Unite Party in the spring of 2011, most fraternity and sorority members I have talked to during my time in Gainesville think the paper has a personal agenda against Greek life. So on the 21st, the reaction from my Greek friends was that the Alligator was out to get them after the front page of the paper had a news story about the trashing, and both the sports and opinions sections ran columns criticizing the Unite Party. They didnt seem to grasp that we were simply reporting the news based on the facts. I had friends who thought the Alligators journalistic standards were low enough to fabricate the entire thing, and I constantly found myself in arguments about this. But I only grew prouder to be a part of a staff that continued to report on a story regardless of how unpopular it made the paper with a powerful segment of the student body even if I had some uncomfortable conversations with my brothers. The staff could have viewed me and other Greek writers as outsiders not fully devoted to objectivity because of our involvement in other organizations. But it was never an issue. These people take their work too seriously to make up a story about student government just to start a controversy, and thats what I love about them. When I describe to others what writing for alligatorSports entails, they cant get over the fact that objectivity is such a high priority for us. But its that same commitment to fairness that every section of the paper displays when it reports on any story. portunity and worry whether or not a longterm career in journalism is in my future, Ill always take comfort in knowing that I was a part of a team at the Alligator that took pride in its work, professionalism and commitment above all else. So thanks to Adam Berry for recommending that the Fall 2011 sports staff hire me and to Tom Green for taking the recommendation seriously and giving me a shot. To Watts and Boothe: Thanks for making me a better writer last spring by giving me the toughest constructive criticism Ive ever had. And thanks to Greg, Joe and even Pincus for making last football season the best experience Ive had in college. Without you guys and the rest of the Alligator staff, Id probably still be a writer, but a worse one for sure. chance to be a team player. Contact Josh Jurnovoy at jjurnovoy@alligator.org.

TUESDAY, MAY 28, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 19 MICHELLE PROVENZANOAlligator WriterAfter Florida dropped a heartStanford, coach Roland Thornqvist had nothing but praise for his team. Our players were battling their hearts out, Thornqvist said in a release. It looked so grim for us, down 3-0, but somehow we found a way and gave ourselves a chance to win. Thats one thing about this team they just never give up. The loss cost the reigning national champions a shot at their third straight national title, but it didnt diminish a successful season. a 26-3 record, with 23 of its wins coming against ranked opponents. The Gators now say goodbye to Lauren Embree and Caroline Hitimana two seniors who were members of Floridas back-to-back championship squads. Embree ended her career as ITAs National Senior Player of Southeastern Conference Womens Tennis Player of the Year in conference history. season at Florida with an undefeated 20-0 record before she fell to Stanfords Nicole Gibbs in the ly represent her time at Florida. the 2011 and 2012 NCAA Championship matches to grab Florida the title both years. I have no regrets coming to college, Embree said in a release. Honestly, theyre the best four years Ive had of my life. It has really changed me in so many ways. Thornqvist added: Theres not much more I can say about Lauren that I can say that I havent already. Shes a champion. Shes one of the greatest four-year collegiate tennis players in history. Shes meant so much to our program on and off the court and her legend will continue on our future Gator teams who learned from her preparation and training. Although she is not as decorated as Embree, Hitimana also made an impact at Florida. The Waterloo, Belgium, native gave the Gators an edge in SEC play. She was the deciding factor ment match, grabbing the Gators third consecutive SEC Championship in a singles battle against Georgias Alina Jerjomina. Hitimana leaves Florida with a 73-18 career record. She went undefeated in singles at 11-0 in her last season. Despite the loss of a strong senior duo, Florida has impact players across the board in 2013Olivia Janowicz rise to senior status with impressive records under their belts. Oyen entered the 2013 season as ITAs top-ranked collegiate tennis player, and she goes into her senior year with an 80-24 career record. Cercone developed her game this year, struggling in the fall but dominating the spring season with a 20-4 record. Janowicz stepped up in the latter half of the season to grab 16 ing in NCAA Tournament matchups. Freshman Brianna Morgan is another contender for Florida after ending her inaugural season clinchers against ranked opponents. But the season was not an easy one for UF. Doubles play was a weakness for the Gators this year. They lost 10 doubles matches, culminating in a loss to Stanford in Its been challenging because we havent had the doubles issues in the past like we did this year, but our players handled it with resiliency, Thornqvist said. We lost it more this year than any other year that Ive been here. We found a way to still be competitive against top teams throughout the year. Im just really proud of them.Embree, Hitimana come up short in final title runAlligator File PhotoSenior Lauren Embree serves during a match between Florida and Georgia on Oct. 24, 2011, at the Ring Tennis Complex. ball strikers.

He is one of three seniors in Floridas lineup this week and enters the tourMcCumber, Vogel and Tommy added Mou to the lineup to replace freshman A.J. Crouch before the Baton Rouge Regional. Vogel had a strong performance in Baton Rouge, shooting 215 (-1) and tying McCumber for third at the tournament. Its bittersweet, Vogel said. I think Im ready to go, but Ive had such an amazing time here the last two years. One question mark remains for UF the status of sophomore J.D. Tomlinson. The Gainesville native received a stitches in his toe after an accident at a pool. He cut his big toe on his right other toe, I think wed be alright, but thats the one out of ten toes that might be the most important for a right-handed golfer, because when he es with his weight on that right toe.

MCKENZIE DOLL and BRIANNA WAGNERAlligator Contributing WriterThe UF mens club rugby team is heading to Philadelphia to compete against the top collegiate rugby programs in the nation this weekend. The team will play in the USA Sevens Collegiate Rugby Championship. It will be broadcast on NBC Sports, and UFs team is scheduled to compete against Life University, the University of Delaware and the University of Texas. Its the biggest chance we have to let people know who we are and that were a serious contender nationally, said 22-year-old UF journalism alumnus Stephen Sheehan. If UFs team is one of the top two to come out of its pool, the team will continue into the championship round Sunday. Last year, the team walked away with the Challengers Cup. We felt we could win last year, and we know we can win this time, said 21-year-old UF health science junior and team president Joseph Migliore. The style of rugby being played is called 7s, which is a hard-hitting, fast-paced game with two seven-minute halves and seven people per team. I think the team we want to beat the most this year is Delaware because they beat us by one try last year in what we thought was a bad call, said 20-year-old UF business junior Ryan Gilbert. Migliore said each match will be tough. But the team has watched their competitors game tapes from previous years and practiced methods to overcome them. Our camaraderie is probably our greatest strength, Gilbert said. If the person next youre going to get hurt. So we depend on each other.

But for many the decision was bittersweet openly gay scout leaders are still banned. The resolution also reinforces that Scouting is a youth program, and any sexual conduct, whether heterosexual or homosexual, by youth of Scouting age is contrary to the virtues of Scouting, according to the news release. A change to the current membership policy for adult leaders was not under consideration; thus, the policy for adults remains in place. Joseph Antonelli, 70, founder and president of Gainesville Community Alliance, said allowing in gay youth is a step in the right direction, but forbidding gay adults sends the wrong message to children. Antonelli said it was wrong for a scout to have to feel like his two gay dads are inappropriate or not good enough to be scout leaders. I think thats completely B.S., he said. And I dont mean Boy Scout. Although he was happy Gay Boy Scouts OK, but leaders notNBC Sports will broadcast it Our camaraderie is probably our greatest strength. If the person hurt.

The 17-year-old tiger named Ty underwent the procedure Wednesday at a veterinary center in Clearwater. Doctors said in a statement that they safely removed the 4-pound obstruction from Tys stomach. The tiger, which is cared for by Wildlife Rescue and Rehabilitation in Seminole, was brought to veterinarians after not eating for nearly two weeks. regularly assists law enforcement agencies with seized animals, Police: Thong Cape Scooter Man not breaking law MADISON, Wis.

And living thousands of miles from his mother Nuru and his family in Toronto, he can keep his lifestyle hidden.

about the progress, Antonelli said the acceptance of gay adults by the historically conservative association will likely not come in the immediate future. The Boy Scouts of America said its mission would not be plans for further review on the matter. Going forward, our Scouting family will continue to focus on reaching and serving youth in order to help them grow into good, strong citizens, the news release said. Americas youth need Scouting, and by focusing on the goals that unite us, we can continue to accomplish incredible things for young people and the communities we serve. However, Antonelli said if leaders are teaching the boys integrity, honesty and to be good people, it is time to come to grips with full equality. Sterling Davenport, a UF alumnus and Eagle Scout, came out to his parents in 2012. He said he was surprised and happy about the lifted ban. Because the Boy Scouts of America are funded largely by conservative organizations, Davenport said it was a courageous decision. It takes effect Jan. 1. Although he said the decision was a step forward, Davenport said the battle hasnt been won. Its a nice idea to let the youth in, the 24-year-old said. But to let them in and tell them its not okay once they turn 18 is not the right message to send. As a gay man, Davenport said he wasnt the model Boy Scout in the eye of the association. I felt like I earned my rank and I wear it proudly, but I felt like I had to do it by hiding a part of myself, he said. I dont want any other youth to feel like they have to hide who they are to learn lessons about doing service to others.

The company has managed to set itself apart from other arms manufacturers because its fully functional for free to anyone with an Internet connection and access to the mass distribution of them via Internet downloads, Wilson has been dubbed one of the Most Dangerous People in the World by www.wired.com and National Security blog, Danger Room. The only people who should really consider Wilson and company dangerous are law makers and anti-gun enthusiast on Capitol Hill. In wake of the 16 mass shootings that took place in 2012, President Barack Obama initiated 23 executive actions aimed at curbing gun violence, including universal background checks, increased regulation of large capacity magazines and a resurrection of the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban. Despite mounting evidence that gun laws do not curb gun violence, such as the Center for Disease Controls dubbing of 51 constrive to violate the Second Amendment and destroy private property rights. of all the controversy surrounding them. Wilson and company have utilized 3-D printers and thermoplastics to make and are completely untraceable by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives since they can be manufactured at home without a serial number.

Steve Israel proclaim that and calls for an extension of the Undetectable Firearms Act the Transportation Security Administration currently employs Advanced Imaging Technology that can safely screen passengers for metallic and nonmetallic threats and is used in more than 160 airports nationwide, according to its website. Israels blatant ignorance and campaign against Wilson and Defense Distributed is a testament to the states desire to legislatively thwart technological, societal and political progress. While Republicans and Democrats spew age-old gun control rhetoric at one another, Wilson has managed to transcend the left versus right political paradigm and add a new dimension to the gun control debate. The idea that any complishments and the issue of intellectual property rights litical Pandoras box. Wilson has put the spotlight on the striking authoritarian similarities between the left and right and feels that American politics have grown stagnant. In an interview with Glenn Beck, Wilson stated, I dont believe in Romney vs. Obama. I believe in real politics. That is a real political act, giving you a magazine and telling you that no one can take that away. That wasnt true maybe two weeks ago. Wilson has become the poster boy for the idea that we state cannot halt human progress. Technological advancement will always circumvent state-imposed prohibition and components and a fully functional handgun dubbed The Liberator. They have also produced 3-D printable 30 round AK-47 and AR-15 magazines nicknamed The Feinstein and The Cuomo respectively in ode to the two anti-liberty politicians. Cody Wilson has successfully spearheaded the pro-liberty movement, transcended worn out left wing versus right wing rhetoric and has brought about an international political shift.

This announcement, via letter, was sent out only a day before the president was set to give a speech on defense, In the letter, Holder admits to Congress that four Americans have been killed by U.S. drone strikes since 2009. One of those killed, Jude Kenan Mohammed, was still on an FBI wanted poster even though he was said to have been killed in 2011. The FBI has since taken the poster None of the citizens mentioned in the letter received any due process. Though it may be interpreted as unconstitutional, Holder defended such conduct in his letter: It is clear and logical that United States citizenship alone does not make such individuals immune from being targeted. Then, on Thursday, the president gave his speech. He announced that he would be restricting the use of unmanned drone strikes and handing over control of the drones to the military. He also announced in the speech that he would be making steps to close the military prison at Guantanamo Bay. The president, after every speech, can leave one with the feeling that he is genuine in his intentions and that he means well. Yet, we wonder if he knows what his legacy is shaping up to be. honeymoon with the president. Since then, the honeydefense policy tools have been drones. As a matter of history, Obama may very likely be remembered most strongly as the drone president. Despite his Nobel Peace Prize, he will almost certainly not be remembered as a president of peace. Though this move with Guantanamo might be an indication of good things to come, we wonder if he will actually accomplish anything. As a candidate for president, Obama promised to close the military prison. Earlier this year, closing the prison. And now he has taken a renewed interest in Guantanamo, perhaps because of the hunger strike. Why is his word on closing the prison so much better the second time? As for the moral repercussions of all of it, Obama may have a lot more than the lives of four citizens on his conscience if the next president decides to continue with the precedent of killing American citizens.Game of Drones: What will Obamas legacy be?

TUESDAY, MAY 28, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 7 Robbie Rogers is an openly gay athlete who plays soccer. In European countries, this would mean hed get a few chants dedicated to him from fans of opposing teams. In America, it means hes making history. At the same time, its slowly becoming not a big deal. I mean, not a big deal with regards to news stories as a whole. For sports and LGBTQ communities, its a huge deal. This is a very interesting development. With Rogers and Jason Collins announcements that made them leagues Major League Soccer for Rogers and the National Basketball Association for Collins the theme of those who didnt like it was not clear and included unbridled bigotry for the most part. The battle cry of the resistance was, I dont want to hear it, or He should keep it to himself. This pleases me because it means pure hate is being phased out as unacceptable in any form. Were improving as a society. When I use society, I mean both American society and global society. While orientation, the Union of European Football Associations has adopted an anti-racism measure. That measure calls for quick and severe sanctions concerning racist incidents. The Internet is also assisting on these fronts. To paraphrase a www.cracked.com column, the Internet community will not stand for injustice. Every incident has a chance to go viral if morals are ignored. With sports being streamed over the Internet now more than ever, we have on our hands an incredible combination of tools to combat what we see as wrong. Its like having a hammer and a screwdriver fused together in a functional way that also supplies its own nails and screws. Some will abuse this, but these people are like those who injure themselves as a result of not reading warning labels. Ive said this in previous columns, but sports are meant to transcend the everyday world. They give us respite from our fears, failthrough these athletes, and some audience members even go on to follow in the athletes path. Sports should be our utopia not another breeding ground of problems. This is why despite not being a big deal, gay players coming out while active and getting a chance to play is a big deal. Sects of American culture glorify sports to the point of being religious case in point: college football anywhere in the South. How like a benevolent god, gracing the people and helping us solve our problems. The governing bodies of sports are run by people, though. They are not infallible and are even inclined at times to stray from what we would consider a good path. Corruption is rampant. Cheating is overlooked. else to always be there for us allowing us to engage in the least of activities. Couch potato activism on social media only goes so far. If we truly want to overcome the issues that plague us, we must become agents of change ourselves. Weve been given a springboard by these athletes. They can become catalysts as all of us work to improve the world we live in. Its a daunting task but so is Mike Foleys reporting class. I intend to face both challenges headjoin me in the undertaking of improving, if not reforming, any and all communities that we are a part of.

HANNA MARCUSAlligator Contributing WriterAlthough the square plot of land near the intersection of 13th Street and West University Avenue is vacant, its been stirring up dialogue among Gainesville residents for months. Miami-based development company the Swerdlow Group has been working with the City of Gainesville to legally amend the citys comprehensive plan to allow construction of a new multi-story residential development called University Corners. Via two proposals, the company asked Gainesville to adopt two separate ordinances to rezone the property to allow a taller building something the current zoning wouldnt allow. Under current law, they could do the same project, but not quite as big, said City Commissioner Thomas Hawkins. Gainesville is going to grow. Were trying to make it grow, but we only have a certain amount of space. We need to allow people to build taller buildings to accommodate for that. A multi-story building would offer more jobs and more opportunities, Hawkins said. Because of the location and the number of people that could reside at the University Corners building, Hawkins said, costs such as transduced for residents. However, not all Gainesville residents are ready to support the project. Lisa Limpert, a 58-year-old Gainesville resident, said she does not support the proposed ordinance. Limpert, who has lived in Gainesville for 47 years, said the building, which could range from eight to 13 stories, will not only ruin the aesthetics of the area, but also trian situations. The intersection of 13th Street issues as it now stands, she wrote in an email. Adding a huge retail and residential complex on that corner without considering the impact Tom Rider, retired owner of Goerings Book Store, agreed the project would be a bad move for Gainesville. Im proud that I live in a neighborhood thats really come back after years of neglect, he said. But I see this project as a step in the wrong direction. Its the wrong direction because of the parking garage included in the plans for the complex, Rider said. Adding the garage without a careful look at the impact of parkgenerates could interfere with trafThe garage could also block sunlight from nearby buildings, he said. project would come through the citys Community Redevelopment Agency, Rider said, the project could be risky for taxpayers. Its one thing for developers to decide that maybe something will work, but theyre not taking the risk, Rider said. Theyre making sure its the city, and ultimately city taxpayers, that are taking the risk. The City Commission must pass both proposed ordinances so the building can be constructed according to the developers plan. The commission hasnt determined when it will vote on the ordinances. If the vote is not in favor of the two new ordinances, the developer must re-evaluate its building plans to comply with current zoning. But for now, the proposed project remains in the negotiation stage. We raised some concerns about sidewalks and building appearance, and (the developers) did a good job responding to requests, Hawkins said. We continued the ordinance, which basically means we give the developer time to talk to the neighborhood and come back to us later.

I played on some good Little League baseball teams the highlight of my notso-memorable athletic career. Of all of my friends growing up, I was the only one not athletic enough to play a sport in high school. friendship again when I joined a fraternity. I believed that was all I needed. However, I found that I was part of a different, yet equally passionate group on Feb. 21, 2012. A day earlier, in an infamous incident that any student who is at least a junior-tobe would recall, members of the Unite Party threw away more than 250 copies of the Alligator. They did so because the paper ran a front-page story about Will Muschamp endorsing the Students Partys vice presidential candidate, who happened to be one of his players. As a second-semester writer, I hadnt developed a deep connection to the Alligator yet. I knew I liked my fellow sports writers, and the students in the news department treated me well. But as one of just a few members of the Greek community on staff, the incident put me in an awkward situation. My employer was suddenly in the middle of a major controversy with the Greek-powered party. Despite the Alligator endorsing the Unite Party in the spring of 2011, most fraternity and sorority members I have talked to during my time in Gainesville think the paper has a personal agenda against Greek life. So on the 21st, the reaction from my Greek friends was that the Alligator was out to get them after the front page of the paper had a news story about the trashing, and both the sports and opinions sections ran columns criticizing the Unite Party. They didnt seem to grasp that we were simply reporting the news based on the facts. I had friends who thought the Alligators journalistic standards were low enough to fabricate the entire thing, and I constantly found myself in arguments about this. But I only grew prouder to be a part of a staff that continued to report on a story regardless of how unpopular it made the paper with a powerful segment of the student body even if I had some uncomfortable conversations with my brothers. The staff could have viewed me and other Greek writers as outsiders not fully devoted to objectivity because of our involvement in other organizations. But it was never an issue. These people take their work too seriously to make up a story about student government just to start a controversy, and thats what I love about them. When I describe to others what writing for alligatorSports entails, they cant get over the fact that objectivity is such a high priority for us. But its that same commitment to fairness that every section of the paper displays when it reports on any story. portunity and worry whether or not a longterm career in journalism is in my future, Ill always take comfort in knowing that I was a part of a team at the Alligator that took pride in its work, professionalism and commitment above all else. So thanks to Adam Berry for recommending that the Fall 2011 sports staff hire me and to Tom Green for taking the recommendation seriously and giving me a shot. To Watts and Boothe: Thanks for making me a better writer last spring by giving me the toughest constructive criticism Ive ever had. And thanks to Greg, Joe and even Pincus for making last football season the best experience Ive had in college. Without you guys and the rest of the Alligator staff, Id probably still be a writer, but a worse one for sure. chance to be a team player. Contact Josh Jurnovoy at jjurnovoy@alligator.org.

TUESDAY, MAY 28, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 19 MICHELLE PROVENZANOAlligator WriterAfter Florida dropped a heartStanford, coach Roland Thornqvist had nothing but praise for his team. Our players were battling their hearts out, Thornqvist said in a release. It looked so grim for us, down 3-0, but somehow we found a way and gave ourselves a chance to win. Thats one thing about this team they just never give up. The loss cost the reigning national champions a shot at their third straight national title, but it didnt diminish a successful season. a 26-3 record, with 23 of its wins coming against ranked opponents. The Gators now say goodbye to Lauren Embree and Caroline Hitimana two seniors who were members of Floridas back-to-back championship squads. Embree ended her career as ITAs National Senior Player of Southeastern Conference Womens Tennis Player of the Year in conference history. season at Florida with an undefeated 20-0 record before she fell to Stanfords Nicole Gibbs in the ly represent her time at Florida. the 2011 and 2012 NCAA Championship matches to grab Florida the title both years. I have no regrets coming to college, Embree said in a release. Honestly, theyre the best four years Ive had of my life. It has really changed me in so many ways. Thornqvist added: Theres not much more I can say about Lauren that I can say that I havent already. Shes a champion. Shes one of the greatest four-year collegiate tennis players in history. Shes meant so much to our program on and off the court and her legend will continue on our future Gator teams who learned from her preparation and training. Although she is not as decorated as Embree, Hitimana also made an impact at Florida. The Waterloo, Belgium, native gave the Gators an edge in SEC play. She was the deciding factor ment match, grabbing the Gators third consecutive SEC Championship in a singles battle against Georgias Alina Jerjomina. Hitimana leaves Florida with a 73-18 career record. She went undefeated in singles at 11-0 in her last season. Despite the loss of a strong senior duo, Florida has impact players across the board in 2013Olivia Janowicz rise to senior status with impressive records under their belts. Oyen entered the 2013 season as ITAs top-ranked collegiate tennis player, and she goes into her senior year with an 80-24 career record. Cercone developed her game this year, struggling in the fall but dominating the spring season with a 20-4 record. Janowicz stepped up in the latter half of the season to grab 16 ing in NCAA Tournament matchups. Freshman Brianna Morgan is another contender for Florida after ending her inaugural season clinchers against ranked opponents. But the season was not an easy one for UF. Doubles play was a weakness for the Gators this year. They lost 10 doubles matches, culminating in a loss to Stanford in Its been challenging because we havent had the doubles issues in the past like we did this year, but our players handled it with resiliency, Thornqvist said. We lost it more this year than any other year that Ive been here. We found a way to still be competitive against top teams throughout the year. Im just really proud of them.Embree, Hitimana come up short in final title runAlligator File PhotoSenior Lauren Embree serves during a match between Florida and Georgia on Oct. 24, 2011, at the Ring Tennis Complex. ball strikers. Were straight off the tee. McCumber has made a habit of coming up big in postseason play. He is one of three seniors in Floridas lineup this week and enters the tourMcCumber, Vogel and Tommy added Mou to the lineup to replace freshman A.J. Crouch before the Baton Rouge Regional. Vogel had a strong performance in Baton Rouge, shooting 215 (-1) and tying McCumber for third at the tournament. Its bittersweet, Vogel said. I think Im ready to go, but Ive had such an amazing time here the last two years. One question mark remains for UF the status of sophomore J.D. Tomlinson. The Gainesville native received a stitches in his toe after an accident at a pool. He cut his big toe on his right other toe, I think wed be alright, but thats the one out of ten toes that might be the most important for a right-handed golfer, because when he es with his weight on that right toe. Kind of a freak accident at the continued. Just cut it on a piece of tile. Wasnt necessarily horsing around; he was with his family. Tomlinson took full golf shots on Friday afternoon. en more than a quintet to the NCAA Championships. Despite the uncertainty surrounding the back end of Floridas lineup, his team is playing entering the tournament. They stepped up in a big way at the regionals when maybe a lot of ander said. Thats a tribute to them and their resolve. Hopefully they can continue that this week.Sophomore out with injuryVogel They dont understand what theyve accomplished in such a short period of time. UF will face seventh-seeded Tennessee (49-10) on Thursday at 2:30. Florida scored the games only run in the top of the fourth.

After UAB pitcher Lannah Campbell retired the side in the top of the seventh, Florida was three outs away from clinching the win. After UABs Kristen McGrath grounded out, Anna Kimbrell doubled to left center with a line drive that fell only a few feet short of traveling over the fence. Then, Blazsecond base for the second out.

I think they have one of the best teams in the country, Walton said. Ive always thought that. Great pitching staff, great defense, great offense, great athletes.
