Thousands gather to recognize veterans

EVENT FEATURED SKY DIVERS, SPEECHES,
SGUN PRESENTATION AND WREATH LAYING.

By FAITH REAVES
Alligator Writer

Despite the patriotic music, helicopters and skydiv-
ers that filled Alachua County's Veterans Day Ceremony,
eyes remained on the veterans. P"'
About 2,000 people gathered Tuesday at the
Kanapaha Veterans Memorial Park on Tower Road to
express gratitude to men and women who had served Ir. "sa "
in the military.
This year's ceremony paid special recognition to
veterans who now serve in law enforcement and fire
rescue.
Jim Lynch, director of Alachua County's Vete'ran c91c
Services and an Army veteran, has been organizing the
annual event for 15 years.
Lynch hosted a two-hour service that kicked off with
a landing by four skydivers. It continued with a flag-
folding ceremony, a poetry reading, a speech by Alachua ..r;
County Sheriff Sadie Darnell and a gun presentation .
from UF's Air Force ROTC. It closed with a wreath- I~
laying ceremony by the Young Marines, followed by a
performance of "Taps."
Bob Gasche, retired teacher and veteran of World War :j
II and the Korean War, said he was most moved watch- ;

In an attempt to stomp out alcohol-re~
lated injuries during the UF-South Carolina
football game this weekend, UF First Lady
Chris Machen has partnered with Shands
at UF and Student Government to create
the Gator Watch campaign.
The campaign is intended to spread
awareness about the prominence of alco-
hol-related trauma among students and to
encourage community safety.
Machen said they are shooting for 96
trauma-free hours starting Thursday. The
campaign will formally kick off later that
day at Gators' Night Out on Flavet Field,


hosted by the University Police.
The program is loosely based on
Student Sideline Safety Zone, an outreach
by UF and the city of Jacksonville at the
UF-Georgia game to pro-
vide a safe haven for stu-
.dents whether the r
lost or in need of needica

Some student leaders have made ef-

However,` some senators dismiss the
reforms as publicity attempts and refuse
to participate in educational meetings,
making it unclear whether the reforms
have any buy-in with student lawmak-
ers.
Student Body President Kevin Reilly
has proposed that ethics seminars be
held once a semester and has called for
a reworking of SG's "weak" Code of
Ethics by the Senate's Rules and Ethics
Committee.
Reilly was one of four SG officials ~who
exchanged private e-mails in May dis-
cussing appointments and how to keep
the Orange and Blue Party out of Senate

An optional informational meeting on


Sunshine laws was held Thursday and
hosted by Amy Hass, a member of UF's
General Counsel.
Only about seven of 89 senators at-
tended. Some senators cited class conflicts
when questioned about their absence.
Jordan Jhnson adh
sent an e-mail to sena-
tors after the meeting
summarizing the main
points. Reilly said he
thought the meeting
was effective as long
Reinyas the information it bf-
fered was given out.
Still, some senators have their doubts
about Reilly's reforms.
Sen. Benjamin Cavataro, Orange and
Blue Party leader, called Thursda~y's
meeting a public relations stunt and said
educational seminars are not a cure-all to
the bigger problem of SG ethics.
"I think education is important, but
what we really need is leadership,"
Cavataro said.

A false sighting in a Gainesville Winn-
Dixie of missing Orlando toddler Caylee
Anthony was reported to police Saturday
night by Caylee's grandfather.
Caylee's grandfather, George Anthony,
told police he received the tip from Kid
Finders, an organization that helps find
missing children.
Gainesville Police were immediately
dispatched to the Winn-Dixie supermar-
ket at 200 S.W. 16th Ave., where a man
was reported to be shopping with a dark-
haired toddler for 40 minutes, a GPD
release stated.
George and his wife, Cindy, arrived
in Gainesville on Sunday morning and
reviewed the store's security camera foot-


age but were not able to identify the child
as their granddaughter, the release stated.
Using credit card and Winn-Dixie
Reward Card information provided to
Them by the store, detectives were able
to identify the man seen with the child as
Kenneth Stanton.
Detectives went to
State Stanton's home and inter-
NeWS viewed him; the child's
motherJennifer Cowa!n; and
the 2 1/2-year-old girl, the release stated.
According to the release, after Stanton
and Cowan were able to provide hun-
dreds of photos of the girl and her Social
Security card, GPD detectives informed
the Anthonys and the Orange County
Sheriff's Office that the child was not

After searching for the man
for two hours and informing
hospitals in the area of the
situation, Hallet said GPD
received a call from the Citrus
County Sheriff's Office saying
a hospital in Crystal River had
a gunshot victim.
Rooks told hospital officials
he had been injured from "a
drug deal gone bad," the re-
port stated.
"We will wait until he is
discharged from the hospital
to arrest him," Hallett said.
"He will probably be taken to
the Citrus County jail, and we
will then go pick him up.

The report said Rooks is
also suspected of robbing
the same Chevron station
Saturday night.
In that case, the report stat
ed a man had leaned into the
register window with a small
black semi-automatic handgun
and told the clerk to give him
the cash in the register.
Detectives have a warrant
to arrest Rooks on charges of
attempted murder, carrying a
concealed firearm, possession
of a firearm by a convicted
felon and two counts of rob-
bery with a firearm.

Editorial


Gator Watch


New safety program

needs to step it up
No one likes to hear stories about drunken driving,
drunken fighting or getting caught drunkenly re-
lieving yourself on a wall outside a bar. We don't
like these stories because they always end with some form
of the meaningless slogan "Drink Responsibly."
Let's be honest, the majority of us, meaning UF students,
faculty and alumni, like to get our drink on when~the ol'
Gators play. We've heard all the stories, and we've seen
some of them, so we know how real the threat of drunken

aboe ourb aohol-related .trauma" which doesn't refer
to you getting sloppy and un-in-a-relationship-ing your
boyfriend on Facebook UF has created a program cal-led
Gator Watch.
Similar to the Sideline Student Safety Zone in Jacksonville
for the annual match-up against Georgia, Gator Watch is
specifically aimed at preventing accidents on game day.
We hope that our version of the invisible drunken safety
net is a bit more effective than the one used at UF-Georgia.
At this year's game, we saw a girl stumbling around the
Jacksonville Landing whose blood-alcohol content was
probably higher than her grade point average.
When one of our relatively sober friends tried to help the
girl, she couldn't find any safety zones or police officers.
Some program.
UF better offer more than that if it expects to achieve its
goals.
The program, which is spearheaded by UF First Lady
Chris Machen, proposes five instructions for a successful
program: Watch out for each other; act responsibly; take a
taxi; call for help; and have fun.
We think the goal of Gator Watch is admirable, but we'll
remain skeptical of the program because of these broad
goals. These things happen every weekend, game day or
not, but we only hear about them when something goes
wrong.



With a historic election having just ended and

Thanksgiving just a few weeks away, it's easy to
forget about that other holiday.
Sure, it gives us a day off, but it's easy to fill that time
with partying, doing homework or sleeping in.
So, if you forgot Tuesday was Veterans Day, take today
to remember,
It's not just about listening to our grandparents' stories
or watching "M*A*S*H" reruns. It's convenient to assign
Veterans Day to the realm of documentaries, parades and
graveyards.
Veterans Day belongs to 20-somethings as much as it
belongs to those who fought in the wars we read about in
our history classes
Because, as Alachua County resident and veteran Bob
Gasche said at a Veterans Day ceremony Tuesday, "a bul-
let's a bullet" and today's soldiers will be the veterans
remembered by the next generation. .
We can't let Veterans Day pass by or stand for~ a group
of people we forget.

The Suite Life Of

Zack & Cody
EPISODE 407

a The One Where Cody
Gets a DUI"


TleU.S. was founded in a revolutionary spirit. This
American brand of patriotism insists that our citi-
zens constrain the power of our leaders, in spite of
impulsive emotions and desires. Throughout their political
experience, Americans are encouraged to openly challenge
their leaders.
It is safe to say most Americans have not enjoyed their
political experience over the past eight years. In retrospect,
President George W. Bush was not particularly well suited
to lead our nation. About three-fourths of Americans disap-
prove of the job he has done.
While Bush has always had a sizable opposition, the emo-
tionally charged masses stood by their man through thick
and thin, blind to the unfolding reality. Most of his dissenters
would say he and his cohorts turned a deaf ear to their deep-
est reservations.
Patriots stepped forward and responded by engaging in
America's oldest tradition. They fought hard. They humbled
those who justified the repression of dissent.
In the days and years to come, will they continue to honor
their role as patriots or will they simply replace those who
persecuted theirpatriotism?
Hundreds of coordinators across the country master-
fully composed an artful and innovative political design for
President-elect Barack Obama's campaign for the presidency.
They took their marching orders from Chicago, the apex of
an unprecedented political network.
A new kind of machine has come into existence. It has
the capacity to fuel the ambitions of former campaign bosses
across the nation with outrageous sums of money and limit-
leSS VOter inforlmatiOn, ill retulH for u11Wavering allegiance.
Democrats and Republicans alike with a partial knowl-
edge of Chicago's political history should raise an eyebrow
at this. Obama's first decision as president-elect, the appoint-


ment of heavy-handed Chicagoan
Rahm Emanuel to the position of
White House chief of staff, puts up
another red flag.
We must not allow our feelings
about Obama to stop us from dis-
agreeing with members of the ma-
Michael Belle chine, questioning their motives or
letters@alligator.org even standing in the way as their
Machine rumbles forward.
The interest of these people is not inter changeable with
the national interest or even the general interest of the
Democratic Party. They are a special interest. As time passes
and political decisions are made, the interest they represent
will become an increasingly marginal one.
It was Bush's consolidation of power that kept a patriotic
opposition from taking part in the practice of democracy.
Now, the fear of unbridled authority has extended to the
Other half of America.
Our first duty as Americans is to deny any faction that
Seeks to impose hegemony. Chicago must not be allowed to
insulate today's 'change makers from tomorrow's cries for
change.
One major reform that we can push for together is the one
abandoned by the Obama campaign as its money began to
dominate the process. A complete overhaul of the campaign
finance system is still essential to protecting the voice of those
who struggle to have a say in the political process.
Regardless of how it takes shape, constraining the pow-
ers of the president and his cohorts in Chicago must be the
first action taken by a united American people to return our
nation to sanity.

columzn appears on Wednesdays.

primaries to a man he knew was his
intellectual inferior.
When McCain decided to run
for his party's nomination again in
2006, he knew what it would take
to win. He knew he would have to
sell himself to the neo-con brand
of Republican. He would have to
become the kind of far-right, Bible-
thumping cowboy that had come to
dominate his party.
McCain spoke at Falwell's col-
_lege, Liberty University, in an effort
to appeal to the evangelical vote. He
decided to support cutting taxes.
In the Republican presidential
debates, McCain spent virtually no
time talking about his own policies
and instead would regularly inter-
rupt with backhanded comments
Meant to bring attention to the other


Wes Hunt candidates'
Speakig Out lack of neo-
conservative
credentials.
Giuliani's divorces, Rormney's
stance on abortion and statewide
publicly funded health care were
more important than the economy,
war and a ballooning national
deficit.
Inhis concession speech, McCain
forgot all that. He lost the snide com-
ments and the underhanded sug-
gestions. He became John McCain
again.
At 72, he is obviously too old to
run for the presidency again. That is
a good thing for all of us.
As the face of his party, McCain
now has the chance to not only
return himself to his once-heralded


status as a truthful and respectable
statesman, but also to bring his
party with him back to the center.
Sen.-Hillary Clinton recently an-
nounced she has no plans to ever
run for the presidency again. She is
a politician, so this obviously isn't
definite.
We should remember that Sen.
Ted Kennedy has brain cancer, and
even if he does survive his term,
he~almost surely won't be running
for another. There will be a power
. vacuum in the leadership of the
Senate's Democrats -- one Clinton
is apt to fill and many have called
on her to fill it.
And so, after two years of cam-
*paigning, we not only have a new
president-to-be, but we also have
new legislative leaders for both par-


ties in McCain and Clinton.
Both have political clout. Both are
respected in Washington. Both have
proven their ability to draw support.
We also have reason to believe that
both may even be more concerned
with fixing this nation's ills than
advancing their own careers.
The result of such a cocktail?
Dare I say, "optimism"?
Will we actually be subjected to
the kind of optimism that comes
with the possibility that both par-
ties will work for the improvement
of ~the nation as a whole? Maybe
we'll see proof that the republic our
founders envisioned really can come
to fruition.
Don't be ridiculous. This is gov-
ernment. Someone will screw it up.
Wes Hunt is a history senior.


Sen. John McCain finally gave
speech worthy of a presi-
dential candidate. He spoke to
Americans like adults and -forsook
the aggressive and counterproduc-
tive assaults that defined his cam-
paign.
He did all of it the moment he
officially lost the election. McCain
finally dropped the trappings he
had donned in 2006, when he de-
cided to run again for his party's
nomination.
In 2000, McCain earned rever-
ence from a young generation and
from both?.parties when he called
Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson the
intolerant bigots that they are.
He was honest with Americans
when he said a tax cut was fiscally
irresponsible. As a result, he lost the

As you were all out celebrat-
ing President-elect Barack
Obama's victory early into
the morning on Nov. 5, many of you
let an important day in history pass
without recognition.
It was 403 years ago that the in-
famous Gunpowder Plot to destroy
the British Houses of Parliament
was foiled, which led to the execu-
tion of co-conspirator Guy Fawkes.
Nov. 5 has been forever immortal-
ized in the film "V for Vendetta" and
has become a day of remembrance
for those of us who wish to see the
U.S. return to a constitutional repub-
lic as our founders would have envi-
sioned. Unfortunately, we no longer
live under such a republic.
Over the past few decades, we
have seen our government take
so much power and spend so
much money that it has left many
Americans concerned for our
country's future. Politicians and bu-
reaucrats treat the Coristitution and
the Bill of Rights like relics from the
past, claiming these documents hold
no relevance in today's society.
How can the very framework that
keeps our country together and pro-
tects every individual's rights be so
blatantly ignored by our leaders?
The Constitution is just an in-
convenience for them, I guess. They
would rather have us simply trust
them than question the legitimacy of
their policies.
Although the president of the
U.S. is.the supposed protector of the
Constitution, he is often the one to
abuse his power the most. I'm sure
you are aware of .tfe Bush admin-
istration's abuses of power, but the
truth is the Constitution has been
abused by every president since the
days of Franklin Delano Roosevelt.
Presidents in modern history
have viewed the executive power
they inherited from their predeces-
sors as a floor to be built upon, not
as a ceiling to limit their executive
authority. This trend needs to be

Speaking Out ~


reversed.
Even Obama
recently said
that he would


use executive orders to bypass
Congress, much like how President
George W. Bush has used signing
statements. How does this bring
change, Mr. President?
Obama also said the Constitution
"[reflects] the fundamental flaw of
this country." This is the same docu-
ment that the new president will
take an oath to uphold and protect
on Jan. 20. How can the president,
the very person who protects the in-
tegrity of the Constitution, say that
it is fundamentally flawed?
Unfortunately, like so many
people today, Obama believes the
Constitution is a "living" docu-
ment that evolves over time in ac-
cordance with society. This view of
our Constitution is absolutely wrong
and very dangerous.
The founders warned that a broad
interpretation of this document
could ultimately ruin our country
by granting our government limit-
less powers.
If a majority of Americans feel we
need to change or add something
to the Constitution, then we must
amend it properly. Otherwise, it
must be strictly followed to ensure
the government doesn't abuse its
power.
It was Patrick Henry who fa-
mously said, "The Constitution is
not an instrument for the govern-
ment to restrain the people; it is an
instrument for the people to restrain
the government."
I ask you all to read the
Constitution and the Bill of Rights
and understand that these docu-
ments exist to maintain our liberty
in the face of authoritarianism.-
Remember, remember the Fifth of
November.
Daniel Rood is an engineering
junior and member of UF College
Libertarians.

Filmmaker discusses award-winning documentary


Ilt's a real microcosm of

listen to politicians, but it's
easy to listen to mothers.

By CAROLYN TILLO

Death touched Victor Cote,
a former prisoner of war, but
it did not reach out for a full
embrace.
Cote, who was held by the
Japanese during World War II,
faced torture and starvation.
He was stuck in a coal mine,
covered with body lice and
infected with dysentery and
malaria. His captors forced
him to work in burial detail.
"I don't know how I sur-
vived," said Cote, who served
in the U.S. Army Air Corps in
"It's important for
younger generations to
know about (history)."

the Philippines.
World War II veterans
Clair Chaffin, Frank Towers
and Clif Cormier joined Cote
at a panel discussion Monday
night at Pugh Hall, where
they spoke of their wartime
experiences.
Their reflections made up
part of "Testimony of War,"
a presentation by the Samuel
Proctor Oral History Program
that attracted a crowd of
about 250 people.
The event also featured
a shortened version of the
documentary produced by
the program's staff members
called "I Just Wanted to Live!"
which describes the experi-
ences of four POWs held by
the Japanese during World
War II.
Two of the POWs, Cote
and Herbert Pepper, were
present for the event.
Pepper, who served as a
master sergeant in the 27th
bomb group of the U.S. Army
Air Corps in the Philippines,
summed up the message of
all of the veterans who spoke
Monday.
"Never give up," he said.
This attitude got him

"To me, that's really inspiring

Documentary Institute.

Peabody Award in 2007 and was
nominated for an Emmy Award
in 2008.

lions of viewers on television, the
film serves as a vehicle for social
change and to create a dialogue,
she said-
"As a filmmaker, there are so
many obstacles in making that
film, and the result is poignant and

co-director of the Documentary
Institute. .

Hila Medalia.
Medalia, an Israeli documen-
tary filmmaker, spoke about the
Palestinian-Israeli conflict after
screening her film "To Die In
Jerusalem" at UF's College of
Journalism and Communications'


Documentary Institute on Monday
night.
The film follows the mother of
Rachel Levy, a 17-year-old Israeli
girl who was killed in a Jerusalem
market bombing in 2002, and her
quest to speak with the mother of
Palestinian female suicide bomber
Ayat al-Akhras, who was Rachel's
killer.

through two years of 10-hour
daily shifts in a condemned
coal mine in Japan.
His experiences in the coal
mine were described in the
documentary, as was his time
on the Bataan Death March,
in which 72,000 Americans
and Filipinos made a 65-


mile, forced march north on
the Bataan Peninsula in the
Philippines after it was sur-
rendered to the Japanese,
Diane Fischler, the film's
writer, said it was an emotion-
al experience to see how the
families of the POWs reacted
to the video and to get their


feedback about the documen-
tary through e-mail.
Stephanie Schroeder, 22,
a UF history senior, said the
history of World Wiar II is be-
ing lost.
"It's important for younger
generations to know about it,"
Schroeder said.

W 0*cyo EDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 12,2008 Thousands gather 0 EVENT FEATURED SKY DIVERS, SPEECHES, GUN PRESENTATION AND WREATH LAYING. By FAITH REAVES Alligator Writer Despite the patriotic music, helicopters and skydivers that filled Alachua County's Veterans Day Ceremony, eyes remained on the veterans. About 2,000 people gathered Tuesday at the Kanapaha Veterans Memorial Park on Tower Road to express gratitude to men and women who had served in the military. This year's ceremony paid special recognition to veterans who now serve in law enforcement and fire rescue. Jim Lynch, director of Alachua County's Veteran Services and an Army veteran, has been organizing the annual event for 15 years. Lynch hosted a two-hour service that kicked off with a landing by four skydivers. It continued with a flagfolding ceremony, a poetry reading, a speech by Alachua County Sheriff Sadie Darnell and a gun presentation from UF's Air Force ROTC' It closed with a wreathlaying ceremony by the Young Marines, followed by a performance of "Taps." Bob Gasche, retired teacher and veteran of World War II and the Korean War, said he was most moved watching the Young Marines place wreaths on the memorials. "Today is a wonderful day of patriotism, appreciation and recognition of the service these veterans did to keep our country free," said Gasche, who co-authored a bookDon Sherry, president SEE VETERAN, PAGE 5 sung at the Alachua C Police name suspect By KATIE EMMETS Alligator Writer Detectives obtained an arrest warrant Monday for a hospitalized man in Crystal River who was suspected of two hold-ups at a Gainesville Chevron. Aaron Rooks, 30, is being treated for a gunshot wound to the chest, which police believe he received while trying to rob the Chevron station at 3328 W. University Ave. on Sunday evening. According to a Gainesville Police report, a man entered the Chevron station at 7:15 p.m. Saturday and demanded money. He pointed a small black semi-automatic handgun in the clerk's face Local and fired one round of News bullets into the cigarette display case. The clerk took out a compact .380 handgun from his left pocket and shot the suspect in the chest at point-blank range, said GPD spokeswoman Summer Hallett.

STUDENT LIFE UF launches Gator Watch By LAUREN BAKER Aligator Writer Ibaker@alligator.org In an attempt to stomp out alcohol-related injuries during the UF-South Carolina football game this weekend, UF First Lady Chris Machen has partnered with Shands at UF and Student Government to create the Gator Watch campaign. The campaign is intended to spread awareness about the prominence of alcohol-related trauma among students and to encourage community safety. Machen said they are shooting for 96 trauma-free hours starting Thursday. The campaign will formally kick off later that day at Gators' Night Out on Flavet Field, hosted by the University Police. The program is loosely based on Student Sideline Safety Zone, an outreach by UF and the city of Jacksonville at the UF-Georgia game to pro-' vide a safe haven for students, whether they are lost or in need of medical attention. Although Gator Watch won't provide a safety zone this year, members Machen will be raising awareness of the campaign at tabling areas and through advertising and a public service announcement by Coach SEE WATCH, PAGE 5 Qo~yr~ghted ~ateri~ A~~~Ie from ~ommer~i~ News ~ro~iders 7 Student Government officials are making efforts to be more transparent.

False Caylee Anthony sighting reported to GPD By KATIE EMMETS Alligator Writer A false sighting in a Gainesville WinnDixie of missing Orlando toddler Caylee Anthony was reported to police Saturday night by Caylee's grandfather. Caylee's grandfather, George Anthony, told police he received the tip from Kid Finders, an organization that helps find missing children. Gainesville Police were immediately dispatched to the Winn-Dixie supermarket at 200 S.W. 16th Ave., where a man was reported to be shopping with a darkhaired toddler for 40 minutes, a GPD release stated. George and his wife, Cindy, arrived in Gainesville on Sunday morning and reviewed the store's security camera footage but were not able to identify the child as their granddaughter, the release stated. Using credit card and Winn-Dixie Reward Card information provided to them by the store, detectives were able to identify the man seen with the child as Kenneth Stanton. Detectives went to State Stanton's home and interNews viewed him; the child's mother, Jennifer Cowan; and the 2 1/2-year-old girl, the release stated. According to the release, after Stanton and Cowan were able to provide hundreds of photos of the girl and her Social Security card, GPD detectives informed the Anthonys and the Orange County Sheriff's Office that the child was not Caylee Anthony. WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 12, 2008 U ALLIGATOR, 3 STUDENT GOVERNMENT Senators make efforts to increase transparency By LAUREN BAKER Alligator Writer Ibaker@alligator.org Some student leaders have made efforts in recent weeks to make Student Government more transparent since October's private e-mail scandal. However, some senators dismiss the reforms as publicity attempts and refuse to participate in educational meetings, making it unclear whether the reforms have any buy-in with student lawmakers. Student Body President Kevin Reilly has proposed that ethics seminars be held once a semester and has called for a reworking of SG's "weak" Code of Ethics by the Senate's Rules and Ethics Committee. Reilly was one of four SG officials who exchanged private e-mails in May discussing appointments and how to keep the Orange and Blue Party out of Senate committees. An optional informational meeting on Sunshine laws was held Thursday and hosted by Amy Hass, a member of UF's General Counsel. Only about seven of 89 senators attended. Some senators cited class conflicts when questioned about their absence. Senate President Jordan Johnson said he sent an e-mail to senators after the meeting summarizing the main points. Reilly said he thought the meeting was effective as long as the information it offered was given out. Still, some senators have their doubts about Reilly's reforms. Sen. Benjamin Cavataro, Orange and Blue Party leader, called Thursday's meeting a'public relations stunt and said educational seminars are not a cure-all to the bigger problem of SG ethics. "I think education is important, but what we really need is leadership," Cavataro said.

Rooks told hospital officials he had been injured from "a drug deal gone bad," the report stated. "We will wait until he is discharged from the hospital to arrest him," Hallett said. "He will probably be taken to the Citrus County jail, and we will then go pick him up." "We will wait until he is discharged from the hospital to arrest him. He will probably be taken to the Citrus County jail, and we will then go pick him up." Summer Hallett GPD spokeswoman The report said Rooks is also suspected of robbing the same Chevron station Saturday night. In that case, the report stated a man had leaned into the register window with a small black semi-automatic handgun and told the clerk to give him the cash in the register. Detectives have a warrant to arrest Rooks on charges of attempted murder, carrying a concealed firearm, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and two counts of robbery with a firearm. Speeches, music honor vets VETERAN, from page 1 let with Lynch documenting veterans' memorials in Alachua County. Ray Davis, veteran of the Air Force and Army, donned an authentic 1776 uniform for the day -the same kind George Washington wore, he said. As children approached him for pictures and autographs, Davis, a member of Sons of the American Revolution, told stories about the Revolutionary War. Luke Netherland, 13, who played trumpet in the Fort Clarke Middle School band for the first 30 minutes of the event, said his favorite part of the day was playing "March of the Armed Forces." He said he also enjoyed seeing the two helicopters parked on the field and watching the skydivers. "The most important part of the day is showing appreciation to the veterans," said Luke, who wants to join the Army or Air Force one day. Lynch said he hopes the event's attendees remember what guest speaker Darnell said in her speech -that "freedom is not free." Gasche said he hoped the audience left with a greater respect for the sacrifices made by veterans and for those who served on the home front. He added that there is a need for support for today's servicemen and women. He said he doesn't think patriotism is so prevalent as in World War II, though soldiers are asking just as much. "A bullet's a bullet," he said. UF aims for trauma-free weekend WATCH, from page 1 Urban Meyer, Machen said. She said next year Gator Watch will man a tent outside the stadium to provide safety services to students. "To have no trauma is unrealistic, but if we can see a decrease and not have a death or serious injury, it's a success," she said. "If we can save one kid, it's worth it." Machen said alcohol-related traumas occur at every football game, a problem reflected in the number of alcohol-related arrests made during home football games. Of the 116 arrests made in Ben Hill Griffin Stadium at the home game against Louisiana State University, 51 were alcohol-related, according to UPD records. UF spokeswoman Janine Sikes said she hopes Gator Watch's message will mean fewer students at the trauma center. "We're not preaching about alcohol; we're just saying be responsible," Sikes said.

6, ALLIGATOR U WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 12, 2008 Editorial Gator Watch New safety program needs to step it up No one likes to hear stories about drunken driving, drunken fighting or getting caught drunkenly relieving yourself on a wall outside a bar. We don't like these stories because they always end with some form of the meaningless slogan "Drink Responsibly." Let's be honest, the majority of us, meaning UF students, faculty and alumni, like to get our drink on when the ol' Gators play. We've heard all the stories, and we've seen some of them, so we know how real the threat of drunken misbehavior is. To curb "alcohol-related.trauma" -which doesn't refer to you getting sloppy and un-in-a-relationship-ing your boyfriend on Facebook -UF has created a program called Gator Watch. Similar to the Sideline Student Safety Zone inJacksonville for the annual match-up against Georgia, Gator Watch is specifically aimed at preventing accidents on game day. We hope that our version of the invisible drunken safety net is a bit more effective than the one used at UF-Georgia. At this year's game, we saw a girl stumbling around the Jacksonville Landing whose blood-alcohol content was probably higher than her grade point average. When one of our relatively sober friends tried to help the girl, she couldn't find any safety zones or police officers. Some program. UF better offer more than that if it expects to achieve its goals. The program, which is spearheaded by UF First Lady Chris Machen, proposes five instructions for a successful program: Watch out for each other; act responsibly; take a taxi; call for help; and have fun. We think the goal of Gator Watch is admirable, but we'll remain skeptical of the program because of these broad goals. These things happen every weekend, game day or not, but we only hear about them when something goes wrong. Lest we orge t ith a historic election having just ended and Thanksgiving just a few weeks away, it's easy to forget about that other holiday. Sure, it gives us a day off, but it's easy to fill that time with partying, doing homework or sleeping in. So, if you forgot Tuesday was Veterans Day, take today to remember. It's not just about listening to our grandparents' stories or watching "M*A*S*H" reruns. It's convenient to assign Veterans Day to the realm of documentaries, parades and graveyards. Veterans Day belongs to 20-somethings as much as it belongs to those who fought in the wars we read about in our history classes. Because, as Alachua County resident and veteran Bob Gasche said at a Veterans Day ceremony Tuesday, "a bullet's a bullet" -and today's soldiers will be the veterans remembered by the next generation. We can't let Veterans Day pass by or stand for a group of people we forget. ish11 inde ~pendent florida alligator Jessica DaSilva Adam Wynn EDITOR OPINIONS EDITOR Hilary Lehman, Ken Schwencke MANAGING EDITORS The Alligator encourages comments from readers.

This American brand of patriotism insists that our citizens constrain the power of our leaders, in spite of impulsive emotions and desims. Throughout their political experience, Americans are encouraged to openly challenge their leaders. It is safe to say most Americans have not enjoyed their political experience over the past eight years. In retrospect, President George W. Bush was not particularly well suited to lead our nation. About three-fourths of Americans disapprove of the job he has done. While Bush has always had a sizable opposition, the-emotionally charged masses stood by their man through thick and thin, blind to the unfolding reality. Most of his dissenters would say he and his cohorts tumed a deaf ear to their deepest reservations. Patriots stepped forward and responded by engaging in America's oldest tradition. They fought hard. They humbled those who justified the repression of dissent. In the days and years to come, will they continue to honor their role as patriots or will they simply replace those who persecuted their patriotism? Hundreds of coordinators across the country masterfully composed an artful and innovative political design for President-elect Barack Obama's campaign for the presidency. They took their marching orders from Chicago, the apex of an unprecedented political network. A new kind of machine has come into existence. It has the capacity to fuel the ambitions of former campaign bosses across the nation with outrageous sums of money and limitless voter infonnation, in return for unwavering allegiance. Democrats and Republicans alike with a partial knowledge of Chicago's political history should raise an eyebrow at this. Obama's first decision as president-elect, the appointMichael Belle letters@alligator.org ment of heavy-handed Chicagoan Rahi Emanuel to the position of White House chief of staff, puts up another red flag. We must not allow our feelings about Obama to stop us from disagreeing with members of the machine, questioning their motives or even standing in the way as their machine rumbles forward. The interest of these people is not interchangeable with the national interest or even the general interest of the Democratic Party. They are a special interest. As time passes and political decisions am made, the interest they represent will become an increasingly marginal one. It was Bush's consolidation of power that kept a patriotic opposition from taking part in the practice of democracy. Now, the fear of unbridled authority has extended to the other half of America. Our first duty as Americans is to deny any faction that seeks to impose hegemony. Chicago must not be allowed to insulate today's change makers from tomorrow's cries for change. One major reform that we can push for together is the one abandoned by the Obama campaign as its money began to dominate the process. A complete overhaul of the campaign finance system is still essential to protecting the voice of those who struggle to have a say in the political process. Regardless of how it takes shape, constraining the powers of the president and his cohorts in Chicago must be the first action taken by a united American people to return our nation to sanity.

WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 12,'2008 N ALLIGATOR, 7 Guest column McCain can lead Republican Party following presidential loss Sen. John McCain finally gave a speech worthy of a presidential candidate. He spoke to Americans like adults and forsook the aggressive and counterproductive assaults that defined his campaign. He did all of it the moment he officially lost the election. McCain finally dropped the trappings he had donned in 2006, when he decided to run again for his party's nomination. In 2000, McCain eamed reverence from a young generation and from both. parties when he called Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson the intolerant bigots that they are. He was honest with Americans when he said a tax cut was fiscally irresponsible. As a result, he lost the primaries to a man he knew was his intellectual inferior. When McCain decided to run for his party's nomination again in 2006, he knew what it would take to win. He knew he would have to sell himself to the neo-con brand of Republican. He would have to become the kind of far-right, Biblethumping cowboy that had come to dominate his party. McCain spoke at Falwell's colJege, Liberty University, in an effort to appeal to the evangelical vote. He decided to support cutting taxes. In the Republican presidential debates, McCain spent virtually no time talking about his own policies and instead would regularly interrupt with backhanded comments meant to bring attention to the other Wes Hunt candidates' Speaking Out lack of neoconservative credentials. Giuliani's divorces, Romney's stance on abortion and statewide publicly funded health care were more important than the economy, war and a ballooning national deficit. In his concession speech, McCain forgot all that. He lost the snide comments and the underhanded suggestions. He became John McCain again. At 72, he is obviously too old to run for the presidency again. That is a good thing for all of us. As the face of his party, McCain now has the chance to not only retum himself to his once-heralded status as a truthful and respectable statesman, but also to bring his party with him back to the center. Sen.-Hillary Clinton recently an-nounced she has no plans to ever run for the presidency again. She is a politician, so this obviously isn't definite. We should remember that Sen. Ted Kennedy has brain cancer, and even if he does survive his term, he. almost surely won't be running for another. There will be a power vacuum in the leadership of the Senate's Democrats -one Clinton is apt to fill -and many have called on her to fill it. And so, after two years of campaigning, we not only have a new president-to-be, but we also have new legislative leaders for both parties in McCain and Clinton. Both have political clout. Both are respected in Washington. Both have proven their ability to draw support. We also have reason to believe that both may even be more concerned with fixing this nation's ills than advancing their own careers. The result of such a cocktail? Dare I say, "optimism"? Will we actually be subjected to the kind of optimism that comes with the possibility that both parties will work for the improvement of the nation as a whole? Maybe we'll see proof that the republic our founders envisioned really can come to fruition. Don't be ridiculous. This is government. Someone will screw it up. Wes Hunt is a history senior. Guest column Upholding Constitution part of president's duties you were all out celebrating President-elect Barack Obama's victory early into the morning on Nov. 5, many of you let an important day in history pass without recognition. It was 403 years ago that the infamous Gunpowder Plot to destroy the British Houses of Parliament was foiled, which led to the execution of co-conspirator Guy Fawkes. Nov. 5 has been forever immortalized in the film "V for Vendetta" and has become a day of remembrance for those of us who wish to see the U.S. return to a constitutional republic as our founders would have envisioned. Unfortunately, we no longer live under such a republic. Over the past few decades, we have seen our government take so much power and spend so much money that it has left many Americans concerned for our country's future. Politicians and bureaucrats treat the Constitution and the Bill of Rights like relics from the past, claiming these documents hold no relevance in today's society. How can the very framework that keeps our country together and protects every individual's rights be so blatantly ignored by our leaders? The Constitution is just an inconvenience for them, I guess. They would rather have us simply trust them than question the legitimacy of their policies. Although the president of the U.S. is.the supposed protector of the Constitution, he is often the one to abuse his power the most. I'm sure you are aware of -the Bush administration's abuses of power, but the truth is the Constitution has been abused by every president since the days of Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Presidents in modern history have viewed the executive power they inherited from their predecessors as a floor to be built upon, not as a ceiling to limit their executive authority. This trend needs to be Daniel Rood reversed. Speaking Out Even Obama recently said that he would use executive orders to bypass Congress, much like how President George W. Bush has used signing statements. How does this bring change, Mr. President? Obama also said the Constitution "[reflects] the fundamental flaw of this country." This is the same document that the new president will take an oath to uphold and protect on Jan. 20. How can the president, the very person who protects the integrity of the Constitution, say that it is fundamentally flawed? Unfortunately, like so many people today, Obama believes the Constitution is a "living" document that evolves over time in accordance with society. This view of our Constitution is absolutely wrong and very dangerous. The founders warned that a broad interpretation of this document could ultimately ruin our country by granting our government limitless powers. If a majority of Americans feel we need to change or add something to the Constitution, then we must amend it properly. Otherwise, it must be strictly followed to ensure the government doesn't abuse its power. It was Patrick Henry who famously said, "The Constitution is not an instrument for the government to restrain the people; it is an instrument for the people to restrain the government." I ask you all to read the Constitution and the Bill of Rights and understand that these documents exist to maintain our liberty in the face of authoritarianism. Remember, remember the Fifth of November. Daniel Rood is an engineering junior and member of UF College Libertarians. Copyrighted Material Syndicated Content Available from Commercial News Providers

8, ALLIGATOR U WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 12, 2008 ON CAMPUS Filmmaker discusses award-winning documentary Mother's story sheds light on Palestinian-Israeli conflict By DAVID CUMMING Alligator Writer Even getting arrested for filming in the West Bank didn't stop Hilla Medalia. Medalia, an Israeli documentary filmmaker, spoke about the Palestinian-Israeli conflict after screening her film "To Die In Jerusalem" at UF's College of Journalism and Communications' Documentary Institute on Monday night. The film follows the mother of Rachel Levy, a 17-year-old Israeli girl who was killed in a Jerusalem market bombing in 2002, and her quest to speak with the mother of Palestinian female suicide bomber Ayat al-Akhras, who was Rachel's killer. "It's a real microcosm of the conflict," Medalia said. "It's hard "It's a real microcosm of the conflict. It's hard to listen to politicians, but it's easy to listen to mothers." Hilla Medalla Israeli documentary filmmaker to listen to politicians, but it's easy to listen to mothers." With the power of reaching millions of viewers on television, the film serves as a vehicle for social change and to create a dialogue, she said. "As a filmmaker, there are so many obstacles in making that film, and the result is poignant and riveting," said Churchill Roberts, co-director of the Documentary Institute. The film, which took more than four years to finish, was her student thesis project for her master's degree at Southern Illinois University. "To me, that's really inspiring because I'm working on my thesis right now," said Ana Habib, a second-year student at the Documentary Institute. The HBO filmmaker won a Peabody Award in 2007 and was nominated for an Emmy Award in 2008. "Don't do a student film," Medalia said. "Shoot really high because it's possible." Veterans discuss wartime experiences By CAROLYN TILLO Alligator Contributing Writer Death touched Victor Cote, a former prisoner of war, but it did not reach out for a full embrace. Cote, who was held by the Japanese during World War II, faced torture and starvation. He was stuck in a coal mine, covered with body lice and infected with dysentery and malaria. His captors forced him to work in burial detail. "I don't know how I survived," said Cote, who served in the U.S. Army Air Corps in "It's important for younger generations to know about (history)." Stephanie Schroeder UF history senior the Philippines. World War II veterans Clair Chaffin, Frank Towers and Clif Cormier joined Cote at a panel discussion Monday night at Pugh Hall, where they spoke of their wartime experiences. Their reflections made up part of "Testimony of War," a presentation by the Samuel Proctor Oral History Program that attracted a crowd of about 250 people. The event also featured a shortened version of the documentary produced by the program's staff members called "I Just Wanted to Live!" which describes the experiences of four POWs held by the Japanese during World War II. Two of the POWs, Cote and Herbert Pepper, were present for the event. Pepper, who served as a master sergeant in the 27th bomb group of the U.S. Army Air Corps in the Philippines, summed up the message of all of the veterans who spoke Monday. "Never give up," he said. This attitude got him Harrison Diamond / Alligator Staff Julian Pleasants, director emeritus of the UF Samuel Proctor Oral History Program, listens to World War 11 veteran Clair Chaffin speak during a panel discussion at the "Testimony of War" presentation in Pugh Hall on Monday night. through two years of 10-hour daily shifts in a condemned coal mine in Japan. His experiences in the coal mine were described in the documentary, as was his time on the Bataan Death March, in which 72,000 Americans and Filipinos made a 65mile forced march north on the Bataan Peninsula in the Philippines after it was surrendered to the Japanese. Diane Fischler, the film's writer, said it was an emotional experience to see how the families of the POWs reacted to the video and to get their feedback about the documentary through e-mail. Stephanie Schroeder, 22, a UF history senior, said the history of World War II is being lost. "It's important for younger generations to know about it," Schroeder said. jCl) 0 CD CL ~CD 0* CD -i 0 0 CD Cm) z (D ) 0 C. CD
