Georgia 10 UF49



ALMOST TO ATLANTA


Andrew Stanflll. Alligator Staff
Teammates congratulate UF long snapper Butch Rowley (37) for recovering an onside kick during the
Gators' 49-10 win against Georgia in Jacksonville on Saturday.


Gators one

win shy of SEC

title game
By MIKE McCALL

mmccall@alligator.org

JACKSONVILLE Forget the
"Gator Stomp," this was the Gator
Romp.
As expected, UF delivered a re-
sponse to Georgia's end-zone cel-
ebration in 2007, only the Gators
didn't party in the end zone dur-
ing their 49-10 whipping of the
Bulldogs.
The whole field was their dance
hall.
Cornerback Joe Haden pulled
a two-step at Georgia's 25-yard
line, prolonging his 88-yard inter-
ception return that gift-wrapped
a 1-yard touchdown scamper for
quarterback Tim Tebow.
Defensive tackle Terron Sanders
pirouetted around would-be


Bulldog tacklers after scooping
up a fumble by running back-
Knowshon Moreno, returning the
ball to the 10-yard line to set up
another Tebow score.
Linebacker Brandon Spikes
balled himself up and rolled
around like he was on fire after be-
ing blocked in the fourth quarter.
It was one of the few times the
junior didn't find his target in the
Bulldogs' backfield, but it didn't
matter at that point. He had al-
ready done enough to help secure
a victory.
For the finale, Tebow enjoyed
the night's last dance, a slow
-one, as he took a long victory lap
around Jacksonville Municipal
Stadium to celebrate his biggest
win to date and a sweet trip to his
hometown.
Now, the No. 4 Gators (7-1, 5-1
Southeastern Conference) can start
thinking about a tango with No. 1
Alabama (9-0, 5-0 SEC) in Atlanta,
where UF will be headed for the
SEC Cl~ampionship with a win
against Vanderbilt next week.

Sen. Biden speaks at UF


By LAUREN BAKER
Alligator Writer
lbaker@alligatbr.org
Less than 48 hours before Election Day,
about 4,500 people gathered on the Reitz
Union North Lawn to hear Sen. Joe Biden
as part of the Obama campaign's final push
through Florida.
Biden, the Democratic vice presidential
nominee, and his wife, Jill, were introduced
by U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson to a Gator-chomping
crowd. Biden, donning a Gator cap upon en-
trance, was accompanied by his son, Hunter,
and oldest granddaughter, Naomi.'
Despite a increasing drizzle, the crowd
remained cheery before Biden took the stage
at about 4:40 p.m., holding signs with slogans
such as "Biden's my favorite Joe" and groov-


ing to songs such as "Celebration." ObamaBot
waved its arms in rhythm as'it .rolled around
the crowded arena.
Jill Biden, a longtime
husband's commitment to
family, public service and
education before the vice
presidential hopeful ad-
dressed the crowd.
An alumnus of the
University of Delaware,
Biden Biden told the crowd
he watched the Gators beat the Dawgs on
Saturday.
"I thought, 'Thank God we don't play the
Gators,'" he said.
Amid cheers, boos and a chant of "Jill, baby,

UF ranks 2nd best value


Kiplinger's Personal Finance
Magazine ranked UF No. 2 for the
fourth consecutive year in this year's
rankings of the 100 best values in .pub-
lic colleges and universities.
The University of North Carolina at
Chapel Hill was ranked first, capping
an eight-year run at the top of the list.
New College of Florida, in Sarasota,
was not far behind, claiming No. 8.
Other Florida universities finish-
ing in the top 100 were the Florida
State University at No. 17, University
of Central Florida at No. 42, and
University of South Florida at No. 75.


The results, released Friday, will be
published in the December issue.
Rankings were determined by data
from more than 500 four-year public
colleges and universities measuring
academic quality and
National cost of attendance for
News in-state students.
Total costs for in-
state students which includes tu-
ition, fees, books and room and board
- at UNC is $13,731. For UF students,
the cost was $11,888 for the 2007-2008
academic year.

Vandals soap up shopping
center fountain
During the past few months,
a fountain at a shopping center
on Newberry Road has bubbled
over more than 50 times after
soap was poured into it.
Lt. Keith Kameg said
Gainesville Police think the same
"bored teenagers" continue to
vandalize the fountain at 3800
W. Newberry Road near the
Regal Royal Park Stadium movie
theater.
GPD officers uploaded a
video onto YouTube of the most


recent soaping on Oct. 4 in hopes
that someone would see it and
make the culprits stop,, Kameg
said.
The video shows two people
putting soap into the water at
about 10 p.m.
It costs property owners about
$300 each time it's necessary to
dean up the fountain, Kameg
said.
Kameg said the suspects would
not go to jail, but he would like
them to do some cleanup to make
up for lost time and money.
"Heaven forbid they pick up a
hobby that's useful," Kameg said.

Palin stops in Ocala as campaign's end draws near


* ABOUT 7,000 PEOPLE
ATTENDED THE RALLY.

By LAUREN IRIZARRY
Alligator Contributing Writer

Sarah Palin is asking Florida
for a job.
The Republican vice presiden-
tial candidate and Alaska gover-
nor stopped in Ocala on Saturday
to rally support for presidential
candidate Sen. John McCain, who
she said brings a "positive and
refreshing view for America."
"If you're ready for us to help
you, Florida, will you hire us?"
Palin asked the estimated 7,000
people at the rally.
With Election Day coming up,
Palin told the crowd the time for
choosing is now.
The enthusiastic crowd waved
handmade, neon-colored posters
with phrases such as "Sarah is my
sunshine" and "I'm Dan the truck
driver." Some wore pink McCain-
Palin T-shirts and buttons.
Earlier, when Palin's motor-
cade appeared in the distance,
the crowd's shouting became
an overwhelming roar. Queen's
"We Will Rock You" blared over
speakers as Palin stepped off of
the bus.
Palin's 20-minute speech
was frequently interrupted with
chants of "Sarah! Sarah!" "Drill,
baby, drill!" and "Use your brain,
vote McCain."
Politicians who spoke before
her, including U.S. Rep. Cliff
Stearns and Florida Rep. Larry


Cretul, urged voters to support
McCain.
When U.S. Rep. Ric Keller
called Democratic presidential
candidate Sen. Barack Obama an
elitist, he drew boos of agreement
from the crowd.
"Obama would rather attack
Joe the Plumber than offer him
a shrimp cocktail," Keller said
while describing a recent star-
studded fundraiser the Obama
campaign held.
Palin's speech focused on the
plight of the middle class, the en-
ergy crisis and the importance of
small business-
PM100 es in America.
MP 2008 Palin said the
Presidential country is fac-
ing tough eco-
'nomic times
and needs a tough leader to take
it in a new direction.
"My partner and I will balance
the federal budget by the end of
our first term," she promised the
crowd.
She criticized Obama for his
proposed tax policies and said he
is in favor of big government.
"His tax plan is phony and un-
raveling already in the final days
before the election," she said. "Do
the math or go with your gut. It's
the worst time to increase taxes."
She warned the audience,
"Now is not the time to experi-
ment with socialism."
Instead of Obama's "spread
the wealth" policy, Palin said a
McCain administration wants to
"spread the opportunity," which
is what would stimulate- the

supporters at a Road to Victory Rally at West Port High School in Ocala.


economy, she said.
After the rally, supporters said
they were energized and encour-
aged by Palin's speech.
"I agreed with everything she
said," Lee Mahoney, 65, said. "I
thought she was very warm and
appreciative of the crowd."
Mahoney, who is from Ocala,


said Palin's experience is what
draws her to the governor.
Other attendees, Michaela
Lozier, 13, and Bridget Enstrom,
16, are too young to vote but felt it
was just as important to support
their candidates.
"It's important for kids our
age to voice our opinion," Lozier


said. Both girls, who are home-
schooled, said other kids support
candidates based on just what
they hear.
"Don't just listen to your par-
ents," Lozier said.
Added Enstrom: "Do your
research, and go to events like
this."

STATE

Locals to vote on three referenda, state amendments


By DREW HARWELL
Alligator Staff Writer
dharwell@alligator.org

Aside from this election's open votes
for the executive, legislative and judi-
cial branches, six state amendments and
three county referenda will be decided by
Alachua County voters. Proposed amend-
ments require 60 percent of voter support
before being approved.

Amendment 1
Florida's constitution allows the state
Legislature to "prohibit the ownership ...
and possession of real property by aliens
ineligible for citizenship." This amendment
would remove that clause.
According to the League of Women
Voters of Tallahassee, this passage was first
directed at Asian-American immigrants in
the early 20th century as part of the rac-
ist fear movement known as the "Yellow
Peril." Only New Mexico and Florida still
feature these discriminatory exceptions.
Both are voting to remove the clause this
election.

Amendment 2
Known as the "Marriage Protection
Amendment," this would add language
to the state constitution that would only
recognize marriages between one man and
one woman. Any other unions "substan-
tially equivalent" to marriage would also
be invalidated.
Supporters say the amendment would
defend the sanctity of marriage and keep
children out of households led by homo-
sexual couples. Opponents argue that the
language is bigoted and would go further
than banning gay marriage, which is al-
ready illegal, and dismantle numerous civil


unions and domestic partnerships across
the state between gay and straight couples
alike.
More than half of the country has ap-
proved similar amendments, and California
and Arizona are voting on nearly identical
proposals this year.

Amendment 3
Sponsored by the state Taxation and
Budget Reform Commission, this proposed
amendment would prohibit increases in
property tax on homes that are upgraded to
resist wind damage or modified to install
renewable energy sources.
In essence, this would allow the state to
encourage citizens to protect their homes
from natural disasters and decrease their
energy consumption by promising not to
tax them on their construction.
Property values, hurricane protection
and the use of sustainable energy would
most likely increase with this amendment.
Conversely, local government would lose a
portion of increased-value tax revenue.

Amendment 4
Endorsed by nature organizations like
the Nature Conservancy and the Sierra
Club, this would require property tax ex-
emptions for land permanently protected
for conservation.
If passed, this amendment would give
private-property owners a financial incen-
tive to preserve the state's forest and aquat-
ic lands. Tax revenue for local government
would decrease.

Amendment 6
Instead of taxing waterfront property
based on its "highest and best" use, which
has encouraged many shore owners to


convert public land into condominiums
and other private buildings, this amend-
ment would allow owners of marinas, boat
launches and fishing facilities to assess
their property for taxes based on its cur-
rent use.
Supporters of the amendment, which is
sponsored by the state Budget and Taxation
Reform Commission, say it could stop the
continuing decline of public waterfront ac-
cess. Local tax revenues would decrease.

Amendment 8
The last of the tax-and-budget amend-
ments, this would allow counties to instate
a sales tax to fund local community colleg-
es. No sales tax would directly come from
the amendment's approval it would only
allow for counties to vote on the option in
the future.
Supporters say community education
would benefit from the increase in funds.
Opponents argue the possible sales taxes
would burden lower-income families and
shift funding responsibility from the state
to the county.

Approval of an Additional One Mill
Ad Valorem Tax for School District
Operating Expenses
This referendum, the first of three to be
voted on only in Alachua County, would
increase property taxes to fund the school
district's necessary operating expenses like
medical staff, music and art programs, li-
braries, guidance and technology.
Increasing the millage rate by one mill
would equal a $1 increase in taxes for ev-
ery $1,000 of a property's tax values. For
example, 'factoring in other property tax
cuts, a homeowner with property assessed
at $150,000 would pay about $10 a month
more in taxes.


Estimates pin the proposed tax revenue
at nearly $13 million a year, which would
help offset state budget cuts of more than
$9 million this year and a possible $5 mil-
lion next year. Opponents say the amend-
ment would represent another increase in
taxes on citizens who may not necessarily
benefit from public schooling.

Wild Spaces & Public Places
Environmental Lands, Parks and
Recreation One-Half Percent Sales Tax
Sales tax would increase by one-half
percent for the next two years if this passes,
the revenue of which would go toward
buying conservation property and creating
recreational facilities.
Supporters argue temporary visitors to
the county would help fund and maintain
the area's natural land, which would then
increase the value of nearby property and
local quality of life.
Opponents argue that sales taxes affect
poorer citizens proportionally more than
the wealthy and that the unstable economy
makes now a bad time for new governmen-
tal burdens.

Protection of County-Owned Lands
Acquired or Used for Conservation,
Recreation, or Cultural Purposes
This would ensure that any land pur-
chased by the county for conservation,
recreation or cultural purposes would need
to be voted on before being resold for alter-
nate use.
In essence a correction to the original
Alachua County Forever program, which
mandates rules for county-purchased pres-
ervation land, this would require public
consent anytime the county sought to turn
over land once designated as protected
from development.


Music festival fills city during Florida-Georgia off-week


By KRISTIN BJORNSEN
Alligator Contributing Writer


On a weekend when thousands
of Gator fans flocked to Jacksonville
for -the Florida-Georgia football
game, the streets of Gainesville
were unusually crowded.
Cars with license plates from
Indiana, Massachusetts, California
and beyond filled nearly all of
downtown's parking spots.
The Fest, Gainesville's annual
punk rock showcase, summoned
music lovers from across the world
on Friday, Saturday and Sunday for
the seventh year.
More than 250 bands performed
at 10 local venues this year, with
each band's set ranging from about
20 to 40 minutes.
Gareth Akehurst, 19, flew from
England to Orlando, rented a car
and drove to Gainesville for the
weekend festival.
Akehurst came to see Less Than
Jake and Rehasher, a band that
hasn't performed since September
2005, according to its Web site.
He said he is "much obliged" to
come next year.
"It's cheaper for me to come
over here than to go to a load of
shows back in the U.K.," he said.
Unlike Akehurst, Eric Grossman,
a guitarist for Chicago-based punk-
rock band The Brokedowns, spent
more money than he intended.


"I came here with $100, and I
spent $40 on drinks the first night,"
he said. "But we came here to have
a f-ing great time, and we did."
For Austin Lucas, an Indiana-
based bluegrass artist who per-
formed at Common Grounds on
Sunday, the event is about more
than having a good time.
"It's the family feeling," Lucas

ELECTIONS 08

County breaks early vote record


By APRIL DUDASH and
ANDREA ASUAJE
Alligator Writers

Early voters flocked to the polls
during the past month in what
is already being called a record-
breaking pre-election rush, county
officials said this weekend.
As of the early voting deadline
at 7 p.m. Saturday, more than
53,000 people have voted early
countywide. According to Alachua
County Supervisor of Elections
Pam Carpenter, this year has
marked the highest early-voting
turnout in Alachua County history.
"The last highest was prob-
ably somewhere around 20,000,"
Carpenter said. "This was a tre-
mendous turnout."
This year, more than 33,000
Democrats, 11,000 Republicans and
9,000 other voters cast votes early
in the county. At the downtown
Gainesville polling station, 800
people voted in only four hours,
she said.
Michael Martinez, an associate
professor of political science at
UF, said the high amount of early
voting may be due to Alachua


County's support for Democrats
and the party's push for early vot-
ing in this year's race.
Democratic candidate Sen.
Barack Obama's campaign has
been emphasizing the early vote,
Martinez said.'
"Campaigns like early voting
because those votes are banked,"
he said.
The main demographic for early
voters are those
who are older and
more heavily tied
to a party, or what
he called "reliable
voters," rather
than those who
Carpenter are undecided.
"To vote early
you have to decide early," he said.
"(The voters) already have all the
information they need."
For students who are voting
Tuesday, here are some tips to
make the experience go as smooth-
ly as possible:
Make sure your address on
your voter registration card is cor-
rect before.you go to the polls. The
law requires voters to only fill but
ballots in the precinct of their cur-


rent residence. If your address isn't
correct, you will be sent to a clerk
and will have to fill out a change-
of-address form.
The address on your voter
registration card does not have
to match the one on your driver's
license.
Have your picture and signa-
ture ID ready. If you forget identi-
fication, you will need to fill out a
provisional ballot.
Carpenter estimated that wait-
ing times at some polling places
will be about 15 minutes. Plan ac-
cordingly.
You are allowed to wear cam-
paign shirts to the polls but not to
campaign in the polling room or
within 100 feet of the polling loca-
tion.
Leave your camera at home
and make sure to silence your cell
phone to show courtesy to other
voters.
Carpenter said volunteers and
staff have been tired but are excited
about the response to this election.
"We always see an increase
in participation at a presidential
election," she said. "That's just a
given."


Students flock


to free concert


Minus the Bear made
a stop on its national tour
Sunday night to rock out
in front of a packed UF
crowd.
The band, known
for its psychedelic indie
sound, performed along
with opening acts Sylvie
and Annuals.
The Reitz Union Board
and Student Government
Productions paid $15,000
for the show.
The concert brought
about 800 students to
the Reitz Union Rion
Ballroom from 6 p.m. to
11 p.m.
Students huddled
around the stage during
the three performances.
The room reached its
capacity before 8 p.m.,
and many students were
turned away.
Ryan Schmid, a UF
law student, said he ap-


preciates the Reitz Union
Board's efforts to put on
free shows but would
rather pay for a ticket in
advance than wait in line
all day.
"I was in line since 5
o'clock," Schmid said.
UF junior Jerry
Rodriguez
Can sat outside
Campus the ballroom
and offered
to buy wristbands from
students leaving the
concert.
"I think selling tickets
at a discounted price is
a good idea so people
who really want to see
the band will be able to,"
Rodriguez said.
The board tries to
bring a band with na-
tional appeal to UF every
semester. Nada Surf came
in the spring.

Editorial


Vote!

There's no reason to

bypass voting Tuesday
Forgive us for bludgeoning a poor dead horse, but we
have to stress the importance of voting one last time.
Whether you Chomp the Vote, Rock the Vote or Vote
or Die, it really doesn't matter to us as long you get to the
polls and fill in a few bubbles.
The process is painless.
You drive yourself to your designated polling spot, and
from the entrance, you are guided through the building by a
series of volunteers.
You can't get lost. You don't need your own marker.
Short descriptions of each referendum or amendment are
right there on the ballot, and you can pick up a second ballot
if you botch your first one.
The most difficult part of the voting process is getting
your lazy butt off the couch and making it to your desig-
nated precinct.
We aren't saying you should vote simply because it's easy.
The point we're making is that there is no valid excuse for
not voting. A busy schedule is not an acceptable reason for
staying away from the polls. We're all busy; that's why early
voting exists.
And forget all this nonsense about this election being the
most important election of our time. You shouldn't need a
dramatic tagline to entice you to cast a ballot this is a
presidential election, not a Michael Bay film. Every election
is important regardless of whose "time" it is.
The 1996 contest between Sen. Bob Dole and Bill Clinton
wasn't unimportant or irrelevant just because most of us
were 10 years old or younger. Richard Nixon's 1972 re-elec-
tion campaign was just as significant as the 1988 race be-
tween George H. W. Bush and Michael Dukakis.
The absolute worst reason for not voting that we've
heard was from someone who said, they didn't like either of
the presidential candidates. There is something inherently
wrong with this point of view.
There are far more than two candidates. The donkeys and
the elephants don't get every vote. They might get most of
them, but they don't get them all.
Third-party candidates Alan Keyes, Ralph Nader and
Charles Baldwin, to name a few, have all been nominated
for the presidency. Their names certainly aren't as familiar
as Sen. John McCain's or Sen. Barack Obama's, but a lack of
name recognition doesn't translate to a lack of relevance.
You never know; Objectivist Party candidate Thomas
Stevens just might be the man you deem best for the job.
His chances of moving into the White House and becoming
commander in chief may be slimmer than LSU's chances of
repeating as BCS National Champions, but that doesn't mean
you shouldn't vote for him. If you believe Stevens is the right
guy, then forget about McCain, Obama and their media
frenzy. Go with your gut.
Every student at UF is well-educated, but a college edu-
cation is not required to realize the significance of voting. If
you have common sense, then you can easily figure out what
kind of impact the government has on our daily lives. There
should be no hesitation when it comes to voting. It should be
an American reflex.
You've got one day left. Don't flounder in your apathy or
wallow in your laziness: Catch the bus, wait in line for a bit
and get your "I Voted" sticker.
You get one chance every four years. You shouldn't need
more reason than that.

Column

Next president will face uphill battle


With early voters turning out in droves and na-
tional anticipation at an all-time high, the most
consequential election in at least 30 years (or
possibly ever) is a day away.
While a majority of electoral analyses fixate on who
will win, most ignore the implications of a victory for
Sen. Barack Obama, Sen. John McCain or former Rep.
Bob Barr for those few, proud Libertarians.
Ultimately, and unfortunately, the winner of the
horse race will become historically irrelevant because
external 'circumstances will,inhibit the victor's ability
to implement useful policy in the two most important
arenas: the economy and entitlement reform.
The first factor that will inhibit President Obama or
President McCain from moving the nation forward will
be the state of the economy.
As three failed stimulus bills and copious interest
rate cuts by the Federal Reserve and Congress have
shown, no amount of political life support can keep our
economy afloat.
Economists of all political stripes generally agree
that the economy will get worse before it gets better.
This means the Dow Jones will continue to see months
like October, the worst since the stock market crash of
1987, and the job market will contract by more than the
200,000 jobs it has already shrunk by this quarter.
No tax policy or stimulus package offered by either
candidate stands a realistic chance of overcoming these
structural economic disadvantages.
Entitlement (think Social Security, Medicare, etc.)
reform will also be next to impossible for McCain or
Obama to accomplish; both will be expected to prevent
the Social Security and Medicare systems from crash-
ing.
In a world of commodity inflation, faltering consum-
er confidence and a record budget deficit of more. than
$455 billion, raising revenues will be a difficult task,


which is Obama's solution to
both impending catastrophes.
On the other hand, McCain's
solution is to privatize all of
Medicare and much of Social
Security, which has been proven
to raise costs to beneficiaries.
Kyle Robisch Both McCain and Obama will
letters@alligator.org find themselves playing sub-
stantial defense on entitlement
reform as Part A of Medicare,
which refers to hospital insurance, is set to run out of
funding by 2019. This means that President McCain or
President Obama would shoulder the burden of failed
reform during their four or eight years in office.
To make matters worse, Social Security costs are pre-
dicted to exceed tax income by 2017.
In the end, a surprise McCain victory will yield the
same result as a landslide victory by his Illinois col-
league: four years of digging sideways instead of up.
The next president will be shackled by an ever-fal-
tering economy and global instability, not to mention
America's worldwide commitments.
There are simply too many negative circumstances
surrounding the next presidency for either candidate to
achieve the level of success we're all hoping for them
to attain.
McCain and Obama will both be stuck playing
defense, which is no position an American president
wants to be stuck in.
No Republican, Democrat or Libertarian Party candi-
date can hope to solve the glut of crises facing America.
The next president may end up being one and done in
the Oval Office.
Let the 2012 speculation begin.
Kyle Robisch is a political science and economics sopho-
more. His column appears on Mondays.

Letters to the Editor
Religion should not serve political agenda
As a pastor, community leader and advo-
cate of justice and respect, I have been asked
in recent weeks to be a public supporter of
Amendment 2.
I am officially going on record to state that I
will not support this amendment. I do not be-
lieve the state government has any business at-
tempting to dictate what people can do in their
private lives. As a minister, I do not need the
state of Florida to condemn the homosexual
lifestyle because the Bible I read and preach
from is already quite dear on this.
I do not condone such lifestyles, but I will
not discriminate against those who practice
this lifestyle just because I do not. If a gay
person has a partner on life support in a local
hospital, that person has as much right to visit


that person as I would if it were my wife who
lay dying.
The United Methodist Church is quite clear
on not condoning homosexual lifestyles but
notes the worthiness in God's eyes of all of his
people. I will not support the amendment or
be told what to preach concerning it.
This amendment has the capacity of pro-
moting discrimination and is a stark example
of too much government interference in the
private lives of citizens. I do not intend to
use my church pulpit to spread discrimina-
tion, but I will just stay with what the Bible
says about homosexual lifestyles only as it
relates to God's word for our lives. I will not
use God's word for political purposes for the
sake of something that the government has no
business being involved in.

Biased publication sours Republican rally
I respect the Alligator and its writers for
the business they run, but perhaps a lesson
in journalistic values is in order. The College
Republican's very successful "Rally for
McCain/Palin" at Turlington on Thursday re-
ceived less than fair or accurate coverage from
the Alligator in Friday's issue. As expected, it
appeared on page 11, while Obama marches
and Campus NOW rallies were on the front
page the rest of the week.
In addition, the article tried to link our rally
to the ObamaBot. Our rally had nothing to do


with the robot; we simply held it in the same
location. To top it off, including the quote
about our rally being a "petty attempt" was
simply the Alligator reflecting its own biased
opinions in its selective reporting.
I didn't see any such comments about any
Obama campaign maneuvers. I think this is
a prime example of the unbridled bias that
riddles American media outlets.
On Friday, the College Republicans held
another McCain/Palin support rally, where
we had about 30 people and considerable
support from passersby My organization is
very proud of its efforts, and the only thing we
consider "petty" is a low-blow from a paper
that is supposed to be nonpartisan.

No. 4 Gators' victory propels them into thick of national title talk


FOOTBALL, from page 1

quo in the rivalry, where the Gators have
taken 16 of the last 19 contests.
The lopsided score marked UF's sec-
ond-largest margin of victory in series his-
tory and the worst defeat for Georgia (7-2,
4-2 SEC) coach Mark Richt.
"This is the game we had to have,"
coach Urban Meyer said. "Someone asked
if this was the motivation during the
offseason, and you know what? It was,
for nothing more than the fact that it's a
rivalry game the only rivalry game we
lost a year ago and losing doesn't sit
well around our players."
The significance of the win wasn't lost
on pollsters or the BCS computers, either,
as the Gators shot up to No. 4 in the AP
poll and took the No. 5 spot in the BCS.
Spikes made it clear early that this


game. wouldn't be a repeat of Georgia's
42-30 win last season, when running back
Knowshon Moreno sliced through UF's
defense for 188 yards and three touch-
downs.
On the second play from scrimmage,
Moreno took a handoff up the middle, and
Spikes met him with a vicious hit to drop
him for no gain.
'The two ended up facemask-to-face-
mask on the ground for a few moments,
and Spikes offered a warning to the tail-
back.
"I just told him he better get ready
because I'm going to be here all night,"
Spikes said.
The rest of UF's defense followed
Spikes' lead, holding Moreno to 65 yards
on 17 carries.
Those big plays from the defense came
in a five-drive span in the second half and
helped expand the Gators' lead from 11 to
39 points.


Georgia trailed 14-3 early in the third
quarter but moved 68 yards to the UF 30-
yard line and appeared poised to score un-
til Haden jumped in front of quarterback
Matthew Stafford's pass at the 11-yard
line, took off down the sideline and cut
back before being tackled near the goal
line.
"It just happened, and it was a
blur. I looked at the replay, and I
thought it was pretty funny that
a big guy like me was able to pull
that off."
Terron Sanders
UF sophomore defensive tackle

Two drives later, Sanders picked up
Moreno's fumble, and the 300-pounder
executed a spin move during his rumbling
20-yard return.


"It was just kind of like an instinct,"
Sanders said.
"It just happened, and it was a blur. I
looked at the replay, and I thought it was
pretty funny that a big guy like me was
able to pull that off."
Tebow didn't have to do much but was
extremely efficient, going 10 for 13 for 154
yards and two passing touchdowns while
adding three more scores on the ground.
Those ground scores broke running
back Emmitt Smith's all-time UF record
for rushing touchdowns.
Few teams can make a case that they're
playing as well as the Gators, who've won
four straight games against SEC oppo-
nents by nearly 40 points each.
"We have the talent to be the best
team in the country," said Haden, who
shook his head when asked if any team
in the country has played better in the last
month. "Now we practice like it."


Gators for McCain chairman resigns after voting for Obama two weeks ago


BIDEN, from page 1


Jill," Biden spoke for nearly 30 minutes
about Sen. Barack Obama's presidential
goals, which he said include strength-
ening middle-class America, regaining
international respect and ending the
Iraq war.
"I'm here with a simple message:
Change is on the way," he said.
Biden bundled McCain's goals with
the "failed" economic and foreign poli-
cies of President George W. Bush, adding
that McCain was guilty of "Karl Rove"
politics.
"They have called Obama every
name in the book," he said, adding that
"Mr. President" would join the list come
Tuesday.
Biden also brushed off Dick Cheney's
recent endorsement of McCain, citing
support Obama has received from finan-
cial tycoon Warren Buffet and former
Secretary of State Colin Powell.
Some attendees trickled into the arena
at about 1p.m., entertained off and onby
members of a jazz band, who played for
free but said they would be reimbursed
by a photo with Biden.
Throughout Biden's speech, about


25 students supporting McCain waved
Republican campaign signs and a yel-
low Gadsden flag, used during the
Revolutionary War, by the back fence of
the arena.
"It stands for preserving liberty," said
Bryan Griffin, UF College Republicans
chairman, of the flag, adding that
Obama's policies would strip Americans
of some liberties, such as choosing how
to spend their money.
Not all
Republicans were
there to protest.
"I wanted to see
the next vice presi-
dent of the United
States," said Josh
Obama Simmons, Gators for
McCain chairman.
Simmons said he voted for Obama
about two weeks ago.
"I've seen a different John McCain
than the one I signed up to work for,"
he said.
Simmons said he submitted his resig-
nation Sunday night and will no longer
be chairman for the group, which has
more than 1,000 members.
"I expect them to be incredibly pissed
off," he said.

UF DEFENSE

Gators, Spikes shut down Moreno, Georgia offense

By KARL HYPPOLITE
Alligator Staff Writer
khyppolite@alligator.org

JACKSONVILLE If there's one way to stop a p
team from stomping in your end zone, it's keeping
them out of your end zone altogether.
UF's defense put on its most impressive perfor-
mance of the season, holding Georgia to a measly 3
points until late in the fourth quarter in the Gators
49-10 rout. It was anything but a cocktail party for
theBulldogs.
"This is the only answer," UF coach Urban Meyer
said. "This is the only way to answer a game like
that."
Georgia entered the game leading the Southeastern
Conference in total offense (431.2) and second to
the Gators in scoring offense (34.2).N
Meyer emphasized defensive plays would win
Saturday's contest.
The Gators got the message. UF clamped down on
Georgia in each of its three red-zone opportunities.
The Bulldogs came away with just three field-goal
attempts, converting only one.
Running back Knowshon Moreno, who gashed
the Gators for 188 yards and three scores last year,
finished with just 65 yards on the ground and a
fumble.
Quarterback Matthew Stafford finished 18 for 33
with no touchdowns and three interceptions.
"Turnovers, that's one of the key things to playing
great defense, being able to take the ball away and
stop a drive with a fumble recovery or an intercep- Jeremiah Stanley/ Alligator

Meyer's timeouts shift rivalry

T With those two words
From the public address
system inside Jacksonville Municipal
Stadium, Urban Meyer made sure the
2008 edition of a 93-year-old rivalry
would be remembered.
The first one came with 44 ticks left on
the clock. Confusion was the first reac-
tion, as players and fans alike wondered
if they had heard that correctly.
The mood quickly changed on the
sidelines and in the stands when the
reason became clear: Meyer was finally
sporting some swagger. Then there was
another Emmanuel Moody rush, and this
time all eyes were trained on the referee.
Would Meyer do it again? Yes, he
would. With 30 seconds left, the Gators
called their final timeout (their first was
burned in the third quarter on a failed
coach's challenge).

New guards clog backcourt


By MIKE DiFERDINANDO
Alligator Staff Writer
mdiferdinando@alligator.org

When UF coach Billy Donovan looks
down his bench this season, he is going to
see new faces, new possibilities and fewer
minutes to go around.
With a handful of new guards in the
backcourt this year, Donovan is going to
have some hard decisions to make.
Last season's starters Jai Lucas, Nick
Calathes and Walter Hodge are joined by
freshmen wingman Ray Shipman and point
guard Erving Walker. Look for Donovan to
start experimenting with the rotation tonight
at 7 when the No. 19 Gators take on Warner
in the O'Connell Center for their first exhibi-
tion game of the season.


"I feel a lot better about them," Donovan
said. "We have more numbers and more
depth. We can do a lot more than last year."
Because of his court vision and passing
ability, Donovan has
hinted at using Calathes
more at the point this
year.
"Nick's a guy who
can do things with
the ball in his hands,"
Donovan said. "You
calathes want to make sure that
he has the ability to
make other people on the floor better."
While Calathes, the reigning Southeastern
Conference Freshman of the Year, has solidi-
fied his spot in the starting lineup, questions

Haden's third-quarter pick


proves to be game-changer


DEFENSE, from page 14


recovered Moreno's fumble in the
third quarter.
In a game with a 49-10 spread,
the biggest play came from corner-
back JcV-Haden in the third quarter.
With Georgia marching down
the field as UF nursed a 14-3 lead at
the 30-yard line, Haden intercepted
a Matthew Stafford pass attempt to
receiver AJ Green and returned it to
the Bulldogs' 1-yard line.
"We knew that they were going
to make plays," Haden said. "That's
the best quarterback I think we're
going to face this season, and he
made great choices with (Mohamed)


Massaquoi and AJ Green, they're
just great receivers. We knew they
were going to make plays, and
it's just how we act after we make
plays."
Complacency and
inexperience were
sprinkled throughout
the defense last year,
FOota 11 an issue that has been
remedied by im-
proved freshmen and sophomores.
"There was a lack of competition
and a lack of depth," Meyer said.
"There was a void in recruiting. We
recruited a very poor class our first
year here, and as a result, you play
with guys that aren't ready."
They're ready now, and no one is
stomping in their end zone.

plays, Meyer got his revenge. And now until
2009, discussion of this rivalry has shifted
from the Gator Stomp to the Gator Stop.
Sure, Meyer gave his rhetoric after the
game about wanting to get Moody more car-
ries. He even did it with a straight face.
"No," he said when asked if he was rub-
bing it in. "I was trying to win a game. That's
all we're trying to do is win a game."
Percy Harvin added: "We looked at the
sideline and saw that all their fans had gone
and we saw our fans still there. We just want-
ed to rub it in a little bit, not too much, but it
was great for us."
The Georgia contingent got the point.

timeouts per half?" Bulldogs coach Mark


Richt said. "He used them. Perfectly legal."
But Meyer would not have used this tactic
if he didn't believe his team could handle the
ramifications. Because this was more than
sending a message to Georgia this was
sending a message to Alabama, Penn State,
Texas Tech and all the voters and computers.
UF has won its last four games by a com-
bined score of 201-43, and now the national
title talk has returned to Gainesville.
Perhaps it hasn't gone unnoticed by the
representatives of fate. Previously unbeaten
and then-No. 1 Texas lost on a last-second
touchdown pass later Saturday night.
And when asked after the game about
what the win over Georgia meant, Meyer be-
gan to respond before being silenced by the
lights cutting out due to electrical problems
in the press conference room. Twice.
He didn't have to answer. His timeouts
already had.

remain in the rest of the backcourt. As
the team's lone senior and one of its
best outside shooters it is unlikely
Hodge will be relegated to the bench.
This could spell trouble for Lucas, who
started all 36 games last year.
"That's the coach's decision," Lucas
said. "I'll do whatever helps the team."
Shipman also figures to make an
early impact for UP. The athletic fresh-
man should provide the Gators with a
shutdown defender and an above-the-
rim scoring option.
"With the versatility that Ray
Shipman has the ability to get to the
rim and the speed that he has he's re-
ally a mismatch anywhere you put him,"
Lucas said. "He has the speed to guard
(shooting guards), and he's too fast to be


guarded by a (small forward)."
Fans should also keep an eye out
for Walker. The 5-foot-8 point guard is
quick with the ball and can knock down
the outside shot.
"I'm comfortable a few feet from
behind the 3-point
line," Walker said. "It
doesn't seem like a
far shot for me."
While Donovan
said he knows all
the players will not
be happy with their
Lucas minutes, he hopes
the competition for
playing time will make the team better.
"Once minutes start to get divided
up, and guys don't play as much as
they hoped to, or think, or thought they
should, then there's a lot of things that
can create adversity inside a team," he
said.

MONDAY, NOVEMBER 3 2008 Georgia 10 E UF 49 ALMOST TO ATLANTA Andrew Stanfill / Alligator Staff Teammates congratulate UF long snapper Butch Rowley (37) for recovering an onside kick during the Gators' 49-10 win against Georgia in Jacksonville on Saturday. Gators one win shy of SEC title game By MIKE McCALL Alligator Staff Writer mmccaI@alIigator.org JACKSONVILLE -Forget the "Gator Stomp," this was the Gator Romp. As expected, UF delivered a response to Georgia's end-zone celebration in 2007, only the Gators didn't party in the end zone during their 49-10 whipping of the Bulldogs. The whole field was their dance hall. Cornerback Joe Haden pulled a two-step at Georgia's 25-yard line, prolonging his 88-yard interception return that gift-wrapped a 1-yard touchdown scamper for quarterback Tim Tebow. Defensive tackle Terron Sanders pirouetted around would-be Bulldog tacklers after scooping up a fumble by running backKnowshon Moreno, returning the ball to the 10-yard line to set up another Tebow score. Linebacker Brandon Spikes balled himself up and rolled around like he was on fire after being blocked in the fourth quarter. It was one of the few times the junior didn't find his target in the Bulldogs' backfield, but it didn't matter at that point. He had already done enough to help secure a victory. For the finale, Tebow enjoyed the night's last dance, a slow .one, as he took a long victory lap around Jacksonville Municipal Stadium to celebrate his biggest win to date and a sweet trip to his hometown. Now, the No. 4 Gators (7-1, 5-1 Southeastern Conference) can start thinking about a tango with No. 1 Alabama (9-0, 5-0 SEC) in Atlanta, where UF will be headed for the SEC Clfampionship with a win against Vanderbilt next week.

Biden speaks at UF By LAUREN BAKER Alligator Writer Ibaker@aligator.org Less than 48 hours before Election Day, about 4,500 people gathered on the Reitz Union North Lawn to hear Sen. Joe Biden as part of the Obama campaign's final push through Florida. Biden, the Democratic vice presidential nominee, and his wife, Jill, were introduced by U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson to a Gator-chomping crowd. Biden, donning a Gator cap upon entrance, was accompanied by his son, Hunter, and oldest granddaughter, Naomi. Despite a increasing drizzle, the crowd remained cheery before Biden took the stage at about 4:40 p.m., holding signs with slogans such as "Biden's my favorite Joe" and grooving to songs such as "Celebration." ObamaBot waved its arms in rhythm as'it rolled around the crowded arena. Jill Biden, a longtime teacher, spoke of her husband's cormmitment to family, public service and education before the vice presidential hopeful addressed the crowd. An alumnus of the University of Delaware, Biden told the crowd he watched the Gators beat the Dawgs on Saturday. "I thought, 'Thank God we don't play the Gators,"' he said.

Lt. Keith Kameg said Gainesville Police think the same "bored teenagers" continue to vandalize the fountain at 3800 W. Newberry Road near the Regal Royal Park Stadium movie theater. GPD officers uploaded a video onto YouTube of the most recent soaping on Oct. 4 in hopes that someone would see it and make the culprits stop, Kameg said. The video shows two people putting soap into the water at about 10 p.m. It costs property owners about $300 each time it's necessary to dean up the fountain, Kameg said. Kameg said the suspects would not go to jail, but he would like them to do some cleanup to make up for lost time and money "Heaven forbid they pick up a hobby that's useful," Kameg said. -KATIE EMMETS The Alligator strives to be accurate and clear in its news reports and editorials If you find an error, please call our newsroom at (352) 3764458 or send an e-mail to editor@eaigator.org Gift Guide I Deadlines: Monday, November 17 Publishes: Friday, November 21 Gift Guide II Deadlines: Monday, December 1 Publishes: Thursday, December 4 I C) CL the independent florida allgator VOLUME 102 ISSUE 50 ISSN 0889-2423 Not officially associated with the University of Florida Published by campus Communications Inc., of Gainesville, Florida NEWSROOM 352-376-4458 (Voice), 352-376-4467 (Fax) Editor Jessica DaSilva, idasilva@alligator.org Managing Editor/ Print Hilary Lehman, hiehman@alligator.org Managing Editor/ Online Ken Schwencke, kschwencke@alligator.org University Editor Katie Sanders, ksanders@alligator.org Metro Editor Katie Gallagher, kgallagher@alligator.org Enterprise Editor Drew Harwell, dharwell@alligator.org Freelance Editors Jennifer Bingaman, jbingaman@alligator.org Lia Ganosellis, lganosellis@alligatorcorg Opinions Editor Adam Wynn, awynn@alligator.org Sports Editor Brian Steele, bsteele@alligator.org Sports Assistant Editor Evan Drexler, edrexler@alligator.org alligatorSports.org Editor Mike DiFerdinando, mdiferdinando@alligator.org Editorial Board Jessica DaSilva, Hilary Lehman, Ken Schwencke, Adam Wynn Photo Editor Nicole Safker, nsafker@alligatororg Multimedia Editor Charles Roop, croop@alligator.org the Avenue Editor Stephanie Rosenberg, srosenberg@alligator.org Graphics Staff Vicky Cabrera Copy Desk Chiefs Kristen Humphrey, Katherine MoJena, Noel Sanchez, Stephanie Slade Copy Editors Jack Benge, Adam Berry, Emily Blake, Morgan Collins, Caitlin Head, Joseph Holzer, Brian Kelley, Maggie Lawrence, Christina McGinley, Tiffany Morgan, Rachael Pino, Kristen Scheff, Jennifer Smith Online Staff Matthew Gonzalez Blogs Editor David Low Staff Writers Karl Hyppolite, Phil Kegler Mike McCall DISPLAY ADVERTISING 352-376-4482,800-496-0265 (Voice), 352-376-4556 (Fax) Advertising Director Rose Sierra, rsierra@alligator~org Advertising Office Manager Victoria Livingston, viivingston@alligator.org Advertising Assistant Melissa Bell Intern Coordinator Dan Webber Sales Representatives Michelle Arrazcaeta, Allison Cecchini, Cassandra Chisholm, Quinten Ershock, Kaley Goodfellow Kaela Hill, Madeline Ross, Ryan Winkler CLASSIFIED ADVERTISING 352-373-FIND (Voice), 352-376-3015 (Fax) Classified Advertising Manager Ellen Light, ellight@alligator.org Classified Clerks Ashley Flattery, Wildivina Rosario MARKETING 352-376-4482 (Voice), 352-376-4558 (Fax) Marketing Director Brad Smith, bsmith@alligator.org CIRCULATION Operations Manager Scott McKearnan, smckearnan@alligator.org Circulation Assistant David Carlson BUSINESS 352-376-4446 (Voice), 352-376-4556 (Fax) Comptroller Ramona Malloy, Senior B businessofhce@alligator.org SeirBookkeeper Melissa Bell Accounting Clerk Jennifer Cavasino, Amanda Clifton, Masoud Najmabadi ADMINISTRATION 352-376-4446 (Voice), 352-376-4556 (Fax) General Manager Patricia Carey, tcarey@alligator.org Administrative Managers Judy Moore, Kayla Stevens Administrative Assistant Lenora McGowan, lmcgowan@alligator.org President Emeritus C.E.

MONDAY, NOVEMBER 3, 2008 U ALLIGATOR, 3 Pain stops in Ocala as campaign's end draws near E ABOUT 7,000 PEOPLE ATTENDED THE RALLY. By LAUREN IRIZARRY Alligator Contributing Writer Sarah Palin is asking Florida for a job. The Republican vice presidential candidate and Alaska governor stopped in Ocala on Saturday to rally support for presidential candidate Sen. John McCain, who she said brings a "positive and refreshing view for America." "If you're ready for us to help you, Florida, will you hire us?" Paln asked the estimated 7,000 people at the rally. With Election Day coming up, Palin told the crowd the time for choosing is now. The enthusiastic crowd waved handmade, neon-colored posters with phrases such as "Sarah is my sunshine" and "I'm Dan the truck driver." Some wore pink McCainPalin T-shirts and buttons. Earlier, when Palin's motorcade appeared in the distance, the crowd's shouting became an overwhelming roar. Queen's "We Will Rock You" blared over speakers as Palin stepped off of the bus. Palin's 20-minute speech was frequently interrupted with chants of "Sarah! Sarah!" "Drill, baby, drill!" and "Use your brain, vote McCain." Politicians who spoke before her, including U.S. Rep. Cliff Stearns and Florida Rep. Larry Cretul, urged voters to support McCain. When U.S. Rep. Ric Keller called Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Barack Obama an elitist, he drew boos of agreement from the crowd. "Obama would rather attack Joe the Plumber than offer him a shrimp cocktail," Keller said while describing a recent starstudded fundraiser the Obama campaign held. Palin's speech focused on the plight of the middle class, the energy crisis and the importance of small businessO 9 es in America. & 2008* Palin said the country is facing tough eco-nomic times and needs a tough leader to take it in a new direction. "My partner and I will balance the federal budget by the end of our first term," she promised the crowd. She criticized Obama for his proposed tax policies and said he is in favor of big government. "His tax plan is phony and unraveling already in the final days before the election," she said. "Do the math or go with your gut. It's the worst time to increase taxes." She warned the audience, "Now is not the time to experiment with socialism." Instead of Obama's "spread the wealth" policy, Palin said a McCain administration wants to "spread the opportunity," which is what would stimulate the Republican vice presidential candidate Gov. Sarah Palin speaks Saturday afternoon to a group of supporters at a Road to Victory Rally at West Port High School in Ocala. economy, she said. After the rally, supporters said they were energized and encouraged by Palin's speech. "I agreed with everything she said," Lee Mahoney, 65, said. "I thought she was very warm and appreciative of the crowd." Mahoney, who is from Ocala, said Palin's experience is what draws her to the governor. Other attendees, Michaela Lozier, 13, and Bridget Enstrom, 16, are too young to vote but felt it was just as important to support their candidates.

4, ALLIGATOR N MONDAY, NOVEMBER 3,2008 STATE Locals to vote on three referenda, state amendments By DREW HARWELL Alligator Staff Writer dharwell@alligator.org Aside from this election's open votes for the executive, legislative and judicial branches, six state amendments and three county referenda will be decided by Alachua County voters. Proposed amendments require 60 percent of voter support before being approved. Amendment 1 Florida's constitution allows the state Legislature to "prohibit the ownership and possession of real property by aliens ineligible for citizenship." This amendment would remove that clause. According to the League of Women Voters of Tallahassee, this passage was first directed at Asian-American immigrants in the early 20th century as part of the racist fear movement known as the "Yellow Peril." Only New Mexico and Florida still feature these discriminatory exceptions. Both are voting to remove the clause this election. Amendment 2 Known as the "Marriage Protection Amendment," this would add language to the state constitution that would only recognize marriages between one man and one woman. Any other unions "substantially equivalent" to marriage would also be invalidated. Supporters say the amendment would defend the sanctity of marriage and keep children out of households led by homosexual couples. Opponents argue that the language is bigoted and would go further than banning gay marriage, which is already illegal, and dismantle numerous civil unions and domestic partnerships across the state between gay and straight couples alike. More than half of the country has approved similar amendments, and California and Arizona are voting on nearly identical proposals this year. Amendment 3 Sponsored by the state Taxation and Budget Reform Commission, this proposed amendment would prohibit increases in property tax on homes that are upgraded to resist wind damage or modified to install renewable energy sources. In essence, this would allow the state to encourage citizens to protect their homes from natural disasters and decrease their energy consumption by promising not to tax them on their construction. Property values, hurricane protection and the use of sustainable energy would most likely increase with this amendment. Conversely, local government would lose a portion of increased-value tax revenue. Amendment 4 Endorsed by nature organizations like the Nature Conservancy and the Sierra Club, this would require property tax exemptions for land permanently protected for conservation. If passed, this amendment would give private-property owners a financial incentive to preserve the state's forest and aquatic lands. Tax revenue for local government would decrease. Amendment 6 Instead of taxing waterfront property based on its "highest and best" use, which has encouraged many shore owners to convert public land into condominiums and other private buildings, this amendment would allow owners of marinas, boat launches and fishing facilities to assess their property for taxes based on its current use. Supporters of the amendment, which is sponsored by the state Budget and Taxation Reform Commission, say it could stop the continuing decline of public waterfront access. Local tax revenues would decrease. Amendment 8 The last of the tax-and-budget amendments, this would allow counties to instate a sales tax to fund local community colleges. No sales tax would directly come from the amendment's approval -it would only allow for counties to vote on the option in the future. Supporters say community education would benefit from the increase in funds. Opponents argue the possible sales taxes would burden lower-income families and shift funding responsibility from the state to the county. Approval of an Additional One Mill Ad Valorem Tax for School District Operating Expenses This referendum, the first of three to be voted on only in Alachua County, would increase property taxes to fund the school district's necessary operating expenses like medical staff, music and art programs, libraries, guidance and technology. Increasing the millage rate by one mill would equal a $1 increase in taxes for every $1,000 of a property's tax values. For example, 'factoring in other property tax cuts, a homeowner with property assessed at $150,000 would pay about $10 a month more in taxes. Estimates pin the proposed tax revenue at nearly $13 million a year, which would help offset state budget cuts of more than $9 million this year and a possible $5 million next year. Opponents say the amendment would represent another increase in taxes on citizens who may not necessarily benefit from public schooling. Wild Spaces & Public Places Environmental Lands, Parks and Recreation One-Half Percent Sales Tax Sales tax would increase by one-half percent for the next two years if this passes, the revenue of which would go toward buying conservation property and creating recreational facilities. Supporters argue temporary visitors to the county would help fund and maintain the area's natural land, which would then increase the value of nearby property and local quality of life. Opponents argue that sales taxes affect poorer citizens proportionally more than the wealthy and that the unstable economy makes now a bad time for new governmental burdens. Protection of County-Owned Lands Acquired or Used for Conservation, Recreation, or Cultural Purposes This would ensure that any land purchased by the county for conservation, recreation or cultural purposes would need to be voted on before being resold for alternate use. In essence a correction to the original Alachua County Forever program, which mandates rules for county-purchased preservation land, this would require public consent anytime the county sought to turn over land once designated as protected from development. Music festival fills city during Florida-Georgia off-week By KRISTIN BJORNSEN Alligator Contributing Writer On a weekend when thousands of Gator fans flocked to Jacksonville for -the Florida-Georgia football game, the streets of Gainesville were unusually crowded. Cars with license plates from Indiana, Massachusetts, California and beyond filled nearly all of downtown's parking spots. The Fest, Gainesville's annual punk rock showcase, summoned music lovers from across the world on Friday, Saturday and Sunday for the seventh year. More than 250 bands performed at 10 local venues this year, with each band's set ranging from about 20 to 40 minutes. Gareth Akehurst, 19, flew from England to Orlando, rented a car and drove to Gainesville for the weekend festival. Akehurst came to see Less Than Jake and Rehasher, a band that hasn't performed since September 2005, according to its Web site. He said he is "much obliged" to come next year. "It's cheaper for me to come over here than to go to a load of shows back in the U.K.," he said. Unlike Akehurst, Eric Grossman, a guitarist for Chicago-based punkrock band The Brokedowns, spent more money than he intended. "I came here with $100, and I spent $40 on drinks the first night," he said. "But we came here to have a f-ing great time, and we did." For Austin Lucas, an Indianabased bluegrass artist who performed at Common Grounds on Sunday, the event is about more than having a good time. "It's the family feeling," Lucas said, adding that since he's lived in Europe for the past five years, playing The Fest has allowed him to see old friends. "Last year, my first time playing The Fest, all I did was bounce around like a human pinball between people I hadn't seen between 10 years and five Around years," he said. Gaiesville "I left with a strong feeling like it was something I needed to do every year." The massive influx of out-oftowners brought more than just 40ounce beers and clouds of cigarette smoke to Gainesville. At the downtown Five Star Pizza location, business was booming all weekend, store owner Matt Funk said. Funk expected it to be a quiet weekend because football fans were out of town. Instead, the 24-hour pizza restaurant was swamped with customers. Because of the football game, Nicole Safker / Alligator Staff The band Quadrophones plays on the steps of the Hippodrome State Theatre on Friday evening during a free performance as part of The Fest 7. many Five Star employees requested not to work. The restaurant remained understaffed while the store sold hundreds of pizzas over the course of the weekend to hungry Fest attendees. The same held true at Gator Dawgs, where owner Otis Britton sold about 500 vegetarian hot dogs this weekend. This weekend alone raked in triple the amount of business than the entirety of last week, Britton said. "It was way better than a football game weekend," he said.

MONDAY, NOVEMBER 3, 2008 0 ALLIGATOR, 5 ELECTIONS 08 County breaks early vote record By APRIL DUDASH and ANDREA ASUAJE Alligator Writers Early voters flocked to the polls during the past month in what is already being called a recordbreaking pre-election rush, county officials said this weekend. As of the early voting deadline at 7 p.m. Saturday, more than 53,000 people have voted early countywide. According to Alachua County Supervisor of Elections Pam Carpenter, this year has marked the highest early-voting turnout in Alachua County history. "The last highest was probably somewhere around 20,000," Carpenter said. "This was a tremendous turnout." This year, more than 33,000 Democrats, 11,000 Republicans and 9,000 other voters cast votes early in the county. At the downtown Gainesville polling station, 800 people voted in only four hours, she said. Michael Martinez, an associate professor of political science at UF, said the high amount of early voting may be due to Alachua County's support for Democrats and the party's push for early voting in this year's race. Democratic candidate Sen. Barack Obama's campaign has been emphasizing the early vote, Martinez said. "Campaigns like early voting because those votes are banked," he said. The main demographic for early voters are those who are older and more heavily tied to a party, or what he called "reliable voters," rather than those who carpenter are undecided. "To vote early you have to decide early," he said. "(The voters) already have all the information they need." For students who are voting Tuesday, here are some tips to make the experience go as smoothly as possible: Make sure your address on your voter registration card is correct before you go to the polls. The law requires voters to only fill out ballots in the precinct of their current residence. If your address isn't correct, you will be sent to a clerk and will have to fill out a changeof-address form. The address on your voter registration card does not have to match the one on your driver's license. Have your picture and signature ID ready. If you forget identification, you will need to fill out a provisional ballot. Carpenter estimated that waiting times at some polling places will be about 15 minutes. Plan accordingly. You are allowed to wear campaign shirts to the polls but not to campaign in the polling room or within 100 feet of the polling location. Leave your camera at home and make sure to silence your cell phone to show courtesy to other voters. Carpenter said volunteers and staff have been tired but are excited about the response to this election. "We always see an increase in participation at a presidential election," she said. "That's just a given." Students flock to free concert Minus the Bear made a stop on its national tour Sunday night to rock out in front of a packed UF crowd. The band, known for its psychedelic indie sound, performed along with opening acts Sylvie and Annuals. The Reitz Union Board and Student Government Productions paid $15,000 for the show. The concert brought about 800 students to the Reitz Union Rion Ballroom from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. Students -huddled around the stage during the three performances. The room reached its capacity before 8 p.m., and many students were turned away. Ryan Schmid, a UP law student, said he appreciates the Reitz Union Board's efforts to put on free shows but would rather pay for a ticket in advance than wait in line all day "I was in line since 5 o'clock," Schmid said. UF junior Jerry Rodriguez On sat outside Campus the ballroom and offered to buy wristbands from students leaving the concert. "I think selling tickets at a discounted price is a good idea so people who really want to see the band will be able to," Rodriguez said. The board tries to bring a band with national appeal to UF every semester. Nada Surf came in the sprig. -CHELSEA KEENAN Hey Gorgeous 352.336.9349 1402 W University Ave EQUAL HOUSING Call us.

The most difficult part of the voting process is getting your lazy butt off the couch and making it to your designated precinct. We aren't saying you should vote simply because it's easy. The point we're making is that there is no valid excuse for not voting. A busy schedule is not an acceptable reason for staying away from the polls. We're all busy; that's why early voting exists. And forget all this nonsense about this election being the most important election of our time. You shouldn't need a dramatic tagline to entice you to cast a ballot -this is a presidential election, not a Michael Bay film. Every election is important regardless of whose "time" it is. The 1996 contest between Sen. Bob Dole and Bill Clinton wasn't unimportant or irrelevant just because most of us were 10 years old or younger. Richard Nixon's 1972 re-election campaign was just as significant as the 1988 race between George H. W. Bush and Michael Dukakis. The absolute worst reason for not voting that we've heard was from someone who said, they didn't like either of the presidential candidates. There is something inherently wrong with this point of view. There are far more than two candidates. The donkeys and the elephants don't get every vote. They might get most of them, but they don't get them all. Third-party candidates Alan Keyes, Ralph Nader and Charles Baldwin, to name a few, have all been nominated for the presidency. Their names certainly aren't as familiar as Sen. John McCain's or Sen. Barack Obama's, but a lack of name recognition doesn't translate to a lack of relevance. You never know; Objectivist Party candidate Thomas Stevens just night be the man you deem best for the job. His chances of moving into the White House and becoming commander in chief may be slimmer than LSU's chances of repeating as BCS National Champions, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't vote for him. If you believe Stevens is the right guy, then forget about McCain, Obama and their media frenzy. Go with your gut. Every student at UP is well-educated, but a college education is not required to realize the significance of voting. If you have common sense, then you can easily figure out what kind of impact the government has on our daily lives. There should be no hesitation when it comes to voting. It should be an American reflex. You've got one day left. Don't flounder in your apathy or wallow in your laziness: Catch the bus, wait in line for a bit and get your "I Voted" sticker. You get one chance every four years. You shouldn't need more reason than that. alligator Jessica DaSilva EDITOR Hilary Lehman, Ken Schwencke MANAGING EDITORS Adam Wynn OPINIONS EDITOR The Alligator encourages comments from readers.

Opinions ALLIGATOR www.alligator.org/opinion Copyrighted Material Syndicated Content Available from Commercial News Providers Ne 4 Column Next president will face uphill battle ith early voters turning out in droves and national anticipation at an all-time high, the most consequential election in at least 30 years (or possibly ever) is a day away. While a majority of electoral analyses fixate on who will win, most ignore the implications of a victory for Sen. Barack Obama, Sen. John McCain or former Rep. Bob Barr -for those few, proud Libertarians. Ultimately, and unfortunately, the winner of the horse race will become historically irrelevant because external'circumstances will inhibit the victor's ability to implement useful policy in the two most important arenas: the economy and entitlement reform. The first factor that will inhibit President Obama or President McCain from moving the nation forward will be the state of the economy. As three failed stimulus bills and copious interest rate cuts by the Federal Reserve and Congress have shown, no amount of political life support can keep our economy afloat. Economists of all political stripes generally agree that the economy will get worse before it gets better. This means the Dow Jones will continue to see months like October, the worst since the stock market crash of 1987, and the job market will contract by more than the 200,000 jobs it has already shrunk by this quarter. No tax policy or stimulus package offered by either candidate stands a realistic chance of overcoming these structural economic disadvantages. Entitlement (think Social Security, Medicare, etc.) reform will also be next to impossible for McCain or Obama to accomplish; both will be expected to prevent the Social Security and Medicare systems from crashing. In a world of commodity inflation, faltering consumer confidence and a record budget deficit of more than $455 billion, raising revenues will be a difficult task, which is Obama's solution to both impending catastrophes. On the other hand, McCain's solution is to privatize all of Medicare and much of Social Security, which has been proven to raise costs to beneficiaries. Kyle Robisch Both McCain and Obama will letters@alligator.org find themselves playing substantial defense on entitlement reform as Part A of Medicare, which refers to hospital insurance, is set to run out of funding by 2019. This means that President McCain or President Obama would shoulder the burden of failed reform during their four or eight years in office. To make matters worse, Social Security costs are predicted to exceed tax income by 2017. In the end, a surprise McCain victory will yield the same result as a landslide victory by his Illinois colleague: four years of digging sideways instead of up. The next president will be shackled by an ever-faltering economy and global instability, not to mention America's worldwide commitments. There are simply too many negative circumstances surrounding the next presidency for either candidate to achieve the level of success we're all hoping for them to attain. McCain and Obama will both be stuck playing defense, which is no position an American president wants to be stuck in. No Republican, Democrat or Libertarian Party candidate can hope to solve the glut of crises facing America. The next president may end up being one and done in the Oval Office. Let the 2012 speculation begin. Kyl' Robisch is a political science and economics sophomore. His column appears on Mondays. The views expressed here are not necessarily those of the Alligator.

MONDAY, NOVEMBER 3, 2008 0 ALLIGATOR, 7 Letters to the Editor Religion should not serve political agenda As a pastor, community leader and advocate of justice and respect, I have been asked in recent weeks to be a public supporter of Amendment 2. I am officially going on record to state that I will not support this amendment. I do not believe the state government has any business attempting to dictate what people can do in their private lives. As a minister, I do not need the state of Florida to condemn the homosexual lifestyle because the Bible I read and preach from is already quite dear on this. I do not condone such lifestyles, but I will not discriminate against those who practice this lifestyle just because I do not. If a gay person has a partner on life support in a local hospital, that person has as much right to visit that person as I would if it were my wife who lay dying. The United Methodist Church is quite clear on not condoning homosexual lifestyles but notes the worthiness in God's eyes of all of his people. I will not support the amendment or be told what to preach concerning it. This amendment has the capacity of promoting discrimination and is a stark example of too much government interference in the private lives of citizens. I do not intend to use my church pulpit to spread discrimination, but I will just stay with what the Bible says about homosexual lifestyles only as it relates to God's word for our lives. I will not use God's word for political purposes for the sake of something that the government has no business being involved in. Rev. Milford Griner Hall Chapel United Methodist Church 11 E m Biased publication sours Republican rally I respect the Alligator and its writers for the business they run, but perhaps a lesson in journalistic values is in order. The College Republican's very successful "Rally for McCain/Palin" at Turlington on Thursday received less than fair or accurate coverage from the Alligator in Friday's issue. As expected, it appeared on page 11, while Obama marches and Campus NOW rallies were on the front page the rest of the week. In addition, the article tried to link our rally to the ObamaBot. Our rally had nothing to do with the robot; we simply held it in the same location. To top it off, including the quote about our rally being a "petty attempt" was simply the Alligator reflecting its own biased opinions in its selective reporting. I didn't see any such comments about any Obama campaign maneuvers. I think this is a prime example of the unbridled bias that riddles American media outlets. On Friday, the College Republicans held another McCain/Palin support rally, where we had about 30 people and considerable support from passersby. My organization is very proud of its efforts, and the only thing we consider "petty" is a low-blow from a paper that is supposed to be nonpartisan.

8, ALLIGATOR N MONDAY, NOVEMBER 3,2008 No. 4 Gators' victory propels them into thick of national title talk FOOTBALL, from page 1 quo in the rivalry, where the Gators have taken 16 of the last 19 contests. The lopsided score marked UF's second-largest margin of victory in series history and the worst defeat for Georgia (7-2, 4-2 SEC) coach Mark Richt. "This is the game we had to have," coach Urban Meyer said. "Someone asked if this was the motivation during the offseason, and you know what? It was, for nothing more than the fact that it's a rivalry game -the only rivalry game we lost a year ago -and losing doesn't sit well around our players." The significance of the win wasn't lost on pollsters or the BCS computers, either, as the Gators shot up to No. 4 in the AP poll and took the No. 5 spot in the BCS. Spikes made it clear early that this gamewouldn't be a repeat of Georgia's 42-30 win last season, when running back Knowshon Moreno sliced through UF's defense for 188 yards and three touchdowns. On the second play from scrimmage, Moreno took a handoff up the middle, and Spikes met him with a vicious hit to drop him for no gain. The two ended up facemask-to-facemask on the ground for a few moments, and Spikes offered a warning to the tailback. "I just told him he better get ready because I'm going to be here all night," Spikes said. The rest of UF's defense followed Spikes' lead, holding Moreno to 65 yards on 17 carries. Those big plays from the defense came in a five-drive span in the second half and helped expand the Gators' lead from 11 to 39 points. Georgia trailed 14-3 early in the third quarter but moved 68 yards to the UF 30yard line and appeared poised to score until Haden jumped in front of quarterback Matthew Stafford's pass at the 11-yard line, took off down the sideline and cut back before being tackled near the goal line. Itjust happened, and it was a blur. I looked at the replay, and I thought it was pretty funny that a big guy like me was able to pull that off." Terron Sanders UF sophomore defensive tackle Two drives later, Sanders picked up Moreno's fumble, and the 300-pounder executed a spin move during his rumbling 20-yard return. "It was just kind of like an instinct," Sanders said. "It just happened, and it was a blur. I looked at the replay, and I thought it was pretty funny that a big guy like me was able to pull that off." Tebow didn't have to do much but was extremely efficient, going 10 for 13 for 154 yards and two passing touchdowns while adding three more scores on the ground. Those ground scores broke running back Emmitt Smith's all-time UF record for rushing touchdowns. Few teams can make a case that they're playing as well as the Gators, who've won four straight games against SEC opponents by nearly 40 points each. "We have the talent to be the best team in the country," said Haden, who shook his head when asked if any team in the country has played better in the last month. "Now we practice like it." Gators for McCain chairman resigns after voting for Obama two weeks ago BIDEN, from page I Jill," Biden spoke for nearly 30 minutes about Sen. Barack Obama's presidential goals, which he said include strengthening middle-class America, regaining international respect and ending the Iraq war. "I'm here with a simple message: Change is on the way," he said. Biden bundled McCain's goals with the "failed" economic and foreign policies of President George W. Bush, adding that McCain was guilty of "Karl Rove" politics. "They have called Obama every name in the book," he said, adding that "Mr. President" would join the list come Tuesday Biden also brushed off Dick Cheney's recent endorsement of McCain, citing support Obama has received from financial tycoon Warren Buffet and former Secretary of State Colin Powell. Some attendees trickled into the arena at about 1 p.m., entertained off and on by members of a jazz band, who played for free but said they would be reimbursed by a photo with Biden. Throughout Biden's speech, about 25 students supporting McCain waved Republican campaign signs and a yellow Gadsden flag, used during the Revolutionary War, by the back fence of the arena. "It stands for preserving liberty," said Bryan Griffin, UF College Republicans chairman, of the flag, adding that Obama's policies would strip Americans of some liberties, such as choosing how to spend their money Not all Republicans were there to protest. "I wanted to see the next vice president of the United States," said Josh Obama Simmons, Gators for McCain chairman. Simmons said he voted for Obama about two weeks ago. "I've seen a different John McCain than the one I signed up to work for," he said. Simmons said he submitted his resignation Sunday night and will no longer be chairman for the group, which has more than 1,000 members. "I expect them to be incredibly pissed off," he said.

Sports MONDAY, NOVEMBER 3,2008 ALLIGATOR www.alligatorSports.org Gators, Spikes shut down Moreno, Georgia offense By KARL HYPPOLITE Alligator Staff Writer khyppolite@alligator.org JACKSONVILLE -If there's one way to stop a team from stomping in your end zone, it's keeping them out of your end zone altogether. UF's defense put on its most impressive performance of the season, holding Georgia to a measly 3 points until late in the fourth quarter in the Gators O 49-10 rout. It was anything but a cocktail party for the Bulldogs. "This is the only answer," UF coach Urban Meyer said. "This is the only way to answer a game like that." Georgia entered the game leading the Southeastern Conference in total offense (431.2) and second -to the Gators -in scoring offense (34.2). Meyer emphasized defensive plays would win Saturday's contest. The Gators got the message. UF clamped down on Georgia in each of its three red-zone opportunities. The Bulldogs came away with just three field-goal attempts, converting only one. Running back Knowshon Moreno, who gashed the Gators for 188 yards and three scores last year, finished with just 65 yards on the ground and a fumble. % Quarterback Matthew Stafford finished 18 for 33 with no touchdowns and three interceptions. "Turnovers, that's one of the key things to playing great defense, being able to take the ball away and stop a drive with a fumble recovery or an intercepJeremiah Stanley/ Alligator tion," said defensive lineman Terron Sanders, who UF junior middle linebacker Brandon Spikes stops Georgia sophomore running back Knowshon Moreno on the Bulldogs' SEE DEFENSE, PAGE 16 second play from scrimmage during the Gators' 49-10 victory in Jacksonville on Saturday.

With a handful of new guards in the backcourt this year, Donovan is going to have some hard decisions to make. Last season's starters -Jai Lucas, Nick Calathes and Walter Hodge -are joined by freshmen wingman Ray Shipman and point guard Erving Walker. Look for Donovan to start experimenting with the rotation tonight at 7 when the No. 19 Gators take on Warner in the O'Connell Center for their first exhibition game of the season. "I feel a lot better about them," Donovan said. "We have more numbers and more depth. We can do a lot more than last year." Because of his court vision and passing ability, Donovan has hinted at using Calathes more at the point this year. "Nick's a guy who can do things with the ball in his hands," Donovan said. "You want to make sure that he has the ability to make other people on the floor better." While Calathes, the reigning Southeastern Conference Freshman of the Year, has solidified his spot in the starting lineup, questions SEE HOOPS, PAGE 16 NFL Dolphins Broncos 26 17 Buccaneers 30 Chiefs 27 (OT) B The UF volleyball team swept its weekend matches, with libero Elyse Cusack breaking the school record for career digs Friday.

16, ALLIGATOR E MONDAY, NOVEMBER 3,2008 Haden's third-quarter pick proves to be game-changer DEFENSE, from page 14 recovered Moreno's fumble in the third quarter. In a game with a 49-10 spread, the biggest play came from cornerback Jc,,j&Haden in the third quarter. With Georgia marching down the field as UF nursed a 14-3 lead at the 30-yard line, Haden intercepted a Matthew Stafford pass attempt to receiver AJ Green and returned it to the Bulldogs' 1-yard line. "We knew that they were going to make plays," Haden said. "That's the best quarterback I think we're going to face this season, and he made great choices with (Mohamed) Massaquoi and AJ Green, they're just great receivers. We knew they were going to make plays, and it's just how we act after we make plays." Complacency and inexperience were sprinkled throughout the defense last year, Foot all an issue that has been remedied by improved freshmen and sophomores. "There was a lack of competition and a lack of depth," Meyer said. "There was a void in recruiting. We recruited a very poor class our first year here, and as a result, you play with guys that aren't ready." They're ready now, and no one is stomping in their end zone. times on Saturday for the Gators to defeat the Bulldogs, but his 15.4 yards per pass were more than enough to get the job done. Tebow scored a 1-yard touchdown run on fourth down to put UF up 14-3, and his successful conversion of that run put him first on the school list for rushing touchdowns, passing Emmitt Smith, who had 36. 10-13 passing, 154 yds., 2 TDs, 12 rushes, 39 yds., 3 TDs line of scrimmage. Spikes sat on Moreno for a few seconds afterward, settingthe tone for the rest of the game. The leader of the defense finished second on the team in tackles, but Moreno must have been scared after that, as the preseason Heisman candidate finished with just 65 yards on the ground. Green on a post route to the end zone and took the ball back 88 yards, setting up a 1-yard Tebow touchdown that put 15' ahead 2.13. Georgia was demoralized after that play, and it was all downhill for the Bulldogs after that. Haden's 10 tackles led the team. 7 tackles, J TFL, 0.5 sacks 10 tackles, INT, 88 yds. dEakls I INT A88 yds.S Tim Tebow, 6 Ahmad Black, 3 A. Hernandez, 2 Chris Rainey, 1 J. Jenkins, 1 Louis Murphy, 1 J. Cunningham, 1 J. Haden, 1 PHIL, from page 14 plays, Meyer got his revenge. And now until 2009, discussion of this rivalry has shifted from the Gator Stomp to the Gator Stop. Sure, Meyer gave his rhetoric after the game about wanting to get Moody more carries. He even did it with a straight face. "No," he said when asked if he was rubbing it in. "I was trying to win a game. That's all we're trying to do is win a game." Percy Harvin added: "We looked at the sideline and saw that all their fans had gone and we saw our fans still there. We just wanted to rub it in a little bit, not too much, but it was great for us." -t The Georgia contingent got the point. "Well, the rules say you can have three timeouts per half?" Bulldogs coach Mark Richt said. "He used them. Perfectly legal." But Meyer would not have used this tactic if he didn't believe his team could handle the ramifications. Because this was more than sending a message to Georgia -this was sending a message to Alabama, Penn State, Texas Tech and all the voters and computers. UF has won its last four games by a combined score of 201-43, and now the national title talk has returned to Gainesville. Perhaps it hasn't gone unnoticed by the representatives of fate. Previously unbeaten and then-No. 1 Texas lost on a last-second touchdown pass later Saturday night. And when asked after the game about what the win over Georgia meant, Meyer began to respond before being silenced by the lights cutting out due to electrical problems in the press conference room. Twice. He didn't have to answer. His timeouts already had. Shipman, Walker provide depth HOOPS, from page 14 remain in the rest of the backcourt. As the team's lone senior -and one of its best outside shooters -it is unlikely Hodge will be relegated to the bench. This could spell trouble for Lucas, who started all 36 games last year. "That's the coach's decision," Lucas said. "I'll do whatever helps the team." Shipman also figures to make an early impact for UF. The athletic freshman should provide the Gators with a shutdown defender and an above-therim scoring option. "With the versatility that Ray Shipman has -the ability to get to the rim and the speed that he has -he's really a mismatch anywhere you puthim," Lucas said. "He has the speed to guard (shooting guards), and he's too fast to be guarded by a (small forward)." Fans should also keep an eye out for Walker. The 5-foot-8 point guard is quick with the ball and can knock down the outside shot. "I'm comfortable a few feet from behind the 3-point line," Walker said. "It doesn't seem like a far shot for me." While Donovan said he knows all the players will not be happy with their minutes, he hopes the competition for playing time will make the team better. "Once minutes start to get divided up, and guys don't play as much as they hoped to, or think, or thought they should, then there's a lot of things that can create adversity inside a team," he said. 4'"O A2 ii Five Georgia's Haden's touchdowns 7 second play interception on the day? of the game all but sealed Now that's saw Spikes the game for B.
