EPA fines UF for pollution


BY JENNIFER BATE
Alligator Writer

UF has agreed to pay $175,000 in federal
pollution fines after inspectors discovered
soil and groundwater contamination on
campus from March 2008.
UF spokeswoman Janine Sikes said the
university has not completed its investiga-
tion of the contamination and is still trying
to determine if a cleanup will be required.
Environmental Protection Agency in-
spectors said tetrachloroethylene levels in
the soil and groundwater were higher than
allowed by state regulations.
Tetrachloroethylene is a colorless, sweet-
smelling chemical and a non-flammable or-


ganic liquid.
It is commonly used in aerosol dry-clean-
ing products and as a metal degreaser, ac-
cording to the EPA.
According to the Inter-
national Agency for Re-
search on Cancer, tetrachlo-
roethylene is also known to
cause liver damage and is
suspected to cause cancer.
At high levels, tetra-
chloroethylene could also

vous system, according to

vices.

NEW ORLEANS It didn't end with a
Heisman Trophy or a BCS national cham-
pionship.
But it sure was memorable.
Tim Tebow and Florida's senior class
let the chance to win its third national
championship in four years slip away af-
ter losing to Alabama in the Southeastern
Conference Championship Game, but that
didn't keep them from going out winners
against Cincinnati (12-1).
Tebow threw for 482 yards and three
touchdowns as the Gators (13-1) rolled
over the Bearcats 51-24 in the Sugar Bowl.
With the win, UF became the first FBS
program to win 13 games in back-to-back
seasons.
The senior class will leave Gainesville
with two national championships, two
SEC titles and a 48-7 record, the best in
conference history.
"That's a special group," UF coach Ur-
ban Meyer said. "They made a statement
as freshmen that we want to go down as
one of the best ever and let's put a little
plan together and you guys stick together
and follow the plan and let's see what hap-
pens. And they followed the plan."
Giving Meyer plenty of time to plan


has often resulted in big point totals in
bowl games.
But the offensive explosion 659
yards of total offense was a bit surpris-
ing considering the way the Crimson Tide
held the Gators to 13 points and 335 yards
of offense.
In conference games this season, in-
cluding the SEC Championship Game, UF
averaged 26 points and 371 yards of total
offense per game.
Whenever they stepped out of confer-
ence, the Gators feasted on opposing de-
fenses.
Florida averaged 48 points and 622
yards of total offense per game against
its three non-conference bowl eligible op-
ponents this season Troy, Florida State
and Cincinnati.
In the Sugar Bowl, Tebow shattered his
previous career high for passing yards -
338 against Florida Atlantic in 2007 and
set a new BCS bowl record for total yards
(533), breaking the 467-yard mark set by
Texas' Vince Young against USC in the
2006 Rose Bowl.
"I didn't see this coming as far as that
many yards and everything," Tebow said.
"I knew we had a good game plan. I knew
we were going to try to spread it out a little
bit. We felt like that would be successful.

Freeze hits Gainesville hard


with temperatures in the 20s


*STUDENTS ARE ADVISED NOT TO DRINK
ALCOHOL AND TO WEAR LAYERS.

By MELINDA CARSTENSEN
Alligator Contributing Writer

This week, those returning to Gainesville will be
welcomed with new classes, new teachers and com-
paratively cooler weather.
The cool weather is the result of an arctic air mass
affecting Gainesville and the rest of Florida as far south
as Lake Okeechobee.
Temperatures in Gainesville are expected to drop to
21 degrees tonight and to 23 degrees on Wednesday
night, said Phil Peterson, a forecaster at the National
Weather Service in Jacksonville.
This hard freeze is expected to hit Gainesville al-
most every night through Sunday, Peterson said.
A hard freeze occurs when a temperature falls be-
low 27 degrees Fahrenheit for two or more hours.
Peterson said temperatures for this month are sig-
nificantly lower than they were last January.
Although there were two hard freezes in the middle
of last January, Peterson said there was mostly warm
weather in Gainesville.
On Jan. 6, 2009, the high in Gainesville was 80 de-
grees, and the average monthly temperature was 17
degrees higher than normal, he said.
"What's different about this air mass is that it's go-
ing to stay in one place for a week, which is very un-
usual," Peterson said. "This blocking pattern is hap-
pening all throughout the country."
Lauren McKeague of the Florida Division of Emer-


agency Management advises those experiencing hard
freezes to follow the "Five P's" of cold weather safety:
protecting people, protecting plants, protecting pets,
protecting exposed pipes and practicing fire safety.
The Florida Division of Emergency Management
advises students to drink nonalcoholic fluids and wear
multiple layers of loose-fitting, warm clothing.
Students should also try to stay dry and in wind-
protected areas.
"What's different about this air mass is that
it's going to stay in one place for a week,
which is very unusual. This blocking pattern
is happening all throughout the country."
Phil Peterson
forecaster at the National Weather Service in Jackson-
ville


The Florida Division of Emergency Management
also warns against the indoor use of charcoal or other
fuel-burning devices, such as grills that produce car-
bon monoxide.
Peterson said residents should bring all potted
plants inside and cover those that are outside with
sheets or blankets.
"Plants really need to be covered up if you can't
bring them inside and insulated against the cold be-
cause we're talking a killing freeze here," he said.
Because the air is extremely dry, Peterson advises that
those in wooded areas be careful and exercise extreme
caution when burning anything.

Locals have mixed


views on health bill


UF ALUMNI

Gator launches jewelry line


* ABORTION IS A KEY
FACTOR.

By CJ PRUNER
Alligator Writer

In a step toward strengthening
President Barack Obama's call for
health care reform, the U.S. Sen-
ate passed a bill on Christmas Eve
aimed at overhauling America's
health care system.
The final bill, which passed
60 to 39, calls for the injection of
$871 billion of government funds
over the span of 10 years in order
to provide more affordable health
care for millions of Americans.
Similar to the House bill, which
passed in November, the Senate
version has been met with mixed
reactions.
Liberals praise the legislation
as a necessary measure, while
conservatives are uncomfortable
with the bill's heavy spending
and potential invasion of the pri-
vate sector.
Ben Cavataro, president of
the Florida College Democrats,
praised the Senate's ability to pass
a bill he said will provide health
care to 30 million Americans,
strengthen Medicare, reduce the
federal deficit by $100 billion over
the next 10 years and allow stu-
dents to remain on their parents'
health insurance until they turn
26.
"It's really a big step forward,"
he said. "It's not easy to get 60
Senators to agree on anything, let
alone something as big as health
care reform."
Cavataro said he is disappoint-
ed with the Senate bill's lack of a
public option but believes its cuts
to inefficient programs and provi-
sions for low-income Americans
will offer much-needed relief.
Bryan Griffin, chairman of the
UF College Republicans, views
the Senate bill as reckless spend-
ing resulting from bribes made
by politicians bent on staying in
power.
He said Democrats want to cre-
ate public dependence on national


health care, which would make it
harder for voters to take them out
of office.
Griffin pointed to Medicaid
provisions to states with Senators
on the fence, such as Nebraska
and Louisiana, as evidence of
shady politicking and the Demo-
crats' efforts to purchase votes.
"The corruption is really start-
ing to come through," he said. "If
I saw someone in the UF Senate
doing what they're doing in [the
U.S. Senate] now, I'd do every-
thing in my power to have them
removed. What they are doing is
criminal."
As Americans continue to de-
bate where federal money should
go, the issue of abortion has also
taken a place in the public spot-
light.
Under the Senate bill, Ameri-
cans with government health plans
could use money for abortions as
long as they make two premium
payments: one for
National abortion coverage
News and another for
all other medical
needs.
Staci Fox, CEO of Planned
Parenthood of North Florida, op-
poses the "segregation of funds"
and said these measures discour-
age women from accessing health
services like abortion.
"We don't want to go back-
wards and create more obstacles
than women already have," she
said. "It's time for Congress to
trust women."
Jennifer Cyr, the vice presi-
dent of the UF Pro-Life Al-
liance, said most pro-life
supporters would not want tax-
payer money to fund abortion.
"I wouldn't want my money to
fund the killing of a person," Cyr
said.
Paying for abortions, according
to Cyr, would represent a sense of
disrespect for human dignity.
While voters and representa-
tives wrestle with the legislation's
effects, both the House and Senate
bills must go through a bipartisan
conference committee before be-
coming law.

During Amanda Levison's
time at UF, she struggled to
find gifts for her friends on a
tight budget.
She found her solution in
jewelry.
Levison, a 28-year-old
psychotherapist from Fort
Lauderdale, expanded her
creativity with jewelry in
2006 to start AJ Designs,
through which she makes
and sells more than 90 pieces,
ranging from bracelets to dog
accessories.
Levison traced her pas-
sion for handcrafted jewelry
to a very early age.
"I was about 7 or 8, and
everyone was doing simple
knotted bracelets, but I was
"I'm not going to
make something that I
wouldn't want to keep,
and I'm very much a
jeans and flip-flops
person, so I like to make
things that are fit for
work and play."
Amanda Levison
UF graduate

doing really crazy designs,"
she said.
When Levison worked as
a camp counselor during her
summer break from college,
she learned how to create a
bracelet using beads and soon
became a craft store regular.
These days, she gets in-
spiration for her pieces by
browsing through magazines
to see what's in style, but she
said her personal style has a
heavy influence on what she
creates.
"I'm not going to make
something that I wouldn't


want to keep, and I'm very
much a jeans and flip-flops
person, so I like to make
things that are fit for work
and play," she said.
She often uses semipre-
cious stones in her designs,
the most popular being pearls
and crystal.
The stones she works with
can range from $35 to $200,
she said.
But Levison said it's im-
portant to her to keep her
pieces affordable.
Her least expensive de-


signs, beaded key chains,
cost $12.
She is working to get her
creations into more stores
and she someday hopes to
have her own practice in psy-
chotherapy so she can devote
more time to developing her
designs.
"I enjoy every aspect of
what I do, especially the fact
that I have been able to keep
doing it, even though it start-
ed as a hobby," she said.
"I enjoy other people ap-
preciating my art."

Taco Bell joins national shift toward healthier eating


By NERI STEIN
Alligator Contributing Writer

Some resolutions this year
might come with a side of salsa.
As many people made New
Year's resolutions, Taco Bell in-
troduced its new Drive-Thru Diet,
which includes seven new menu
items each with nine grams of fat
or less and no more than 340 calo-
ries.
Taco Bell's new diet also comes
with its own spokeswoman, Chris-
tine Dougherty reminiscent of


Subway's Jared Fogle as it joins
the ranks of other fast food chains
that aim to help customers lose
weight by eating their food.
Dougherty, who lost 54 pounds
by joining Taco Bell's Frescolution
by ordering items from the restau-
rant's Fresco menu, aims to align
the "fourth meal" restaurant with
the health-conscious market.
The new diet items have a layer
of fiesta salsa in place of cheese
usually found on any item at Taco
Bell.
On its Web site, Taco Bell lists


"We already get lots of or-
ders with no dairy and add
salsa. You can do it with
anything on the menu."
Cassie Tillman
assistant manager at the Reitz
Union Taco Bell

a disclaimer, informing potential
dieters the new Drive-Thru Diet
actually isn't a diet at all.
Dougherty is quoted as say-
ing her results aren't typical. She


alludes to making other sensible
choices aside from the Drive-Thru
Diet, but she fails to mention what
those other choices are.
At least one Taco Bell, the Reitz
Union location, isn't participating
in the Frescolution.
Cassie Tillman, assistant man-
ager at the Reitz' Taco Bell, said
the fiesta salsa has been available
for at least a year now, but she isn't
sure if people like it for dietary rea-
sons or personal preference.
Tillman said the new Drive-
Thru Diet menu won't make its


way to campus because it's essen-
tially already here.
"We already get lots of orders
with no dairy and add salsa,"
Tillman said. "You can do it with
anything on the menu."
Tillman also added the new
diet probably wouldn't have much
of an effect at UF's location, saying
another Dougherty isn't likely to
pop up at a college.
"It depends on the students,
and if they want to eat healthy,"
she said.


UF senior wins scholarship to study at UK university


He plans to pursue a Ph.D. in biochemistry


By ELIZABETH BEHRMAN
Alligator Writer

Steven Robinette was working in a labo-
ratory in mid-November when he received
the e-mail.
The UF senior found out he was one of
35 students across the country and the first
from UF to receive the Marshall Scholar-
ship.
"I just couldn't believe it," he said.
The scholarship, created by the U.K. gov-
ernment after the implementation of the
Marshall Plan in 1953, will enable Robinette


to study for at least two years at Imperial
College London as he pursues a Ph.D. in
biochemistry.
Robinette said he has been looking into
scholarships like the Marshall Scholarship
since he got the information during the UF
preview orientation.
"I've known for forever that I wanted to
go live in Britain for at least a little while,"
he said.
The scholarship recipients got to choose
in which school in the U.K. they wanted to
study.
Robinette spent his junior year studying


at Imperial College London as a Barry M.
Goldwater scholar and said he is excited to
return.
"It makes it less intimi-
dating," he said.
Robinette, who will
graduate with a bachelor's
degree in biochemistry and
molecular biology in April,
said he will enter as a mas-
Robinette ter's student but wants to
get funding to stay for a
third year to get his Ph.D.
He said the application process was pret-


ty standard, including an online application,
an interview and four letters of recommen-
dation.
He said UF biomedical engineering pro-
fessor Art Edison, who has been working
and doing research with Robinette since
Robinette was a freshman, was one of the
people who inspired him the most through-
out the course of his studies.
Edison said Robinette is a very hardwork-
ing and deserving student. He said he is a
perfect example of how an undergraduate
student can take advantage of the research
opportunities at UF.
"He's going to go on to be a very well-
known, well-regarded scientist," Edison
said.

U.S. right to focus

security efforts

R residents of troubled nations like Afghanistan, Somalia
and Iraq face daily struggles that can sometimes mean
ife or limb. So it would stand to reason that an extra
pat down at the airport would seem inconsequential, even
trivial, to someone with such an intimate knowledge of what
real hassles are.
But a recent push by the U.S. for tighter security on inter-
national flights essentially an extra pat down and carry-
on bag search has drawn harsh criticism.
On Monday, these measures were put in place in re-
sponse to a Nigerian man's attempt to ignite explosives on
a Detroit-bound flight. According to the Associated Press,
14 countries were named in the new guidelines, including
official state sponsors of terror such as Iran, Cuba, Sudan
and Syria.
While the security risk posed by those few flights origi-
nating in Cuba is essentially zero, passengers from the
other countries named may represent a legitimate threat to
the U.S. These include Yemen, Libya, Nigeria and Lebanon;
major acts of terrorism have been carried out or attempted
by individuals from these countries in the recent past.
Critics raise the point that the attack that brought on this
increased security originated in Amsterdam. It is true that
any flight, regardless of its origin, could be a target.
But the choice to focus limited resources on those coun-
tries that pose the highest risk is wise, especially given the
relatively poor security measures previously in place in
these countries.
Given this narrow focus, the Nigerian Information Min-
ister Dora Akunyili said Monday that these guidelines are
discriminatory. Parallels are drawn to racial profiling, a
subject with which U.S. security agencies, as well as the
Transportation Security Administration in particular, have
had a troubled past.
But the measures affect all passengers from those coun-
tries listed, regardless of race or ethnicity. Further, accord-
ing to NPR, terrorist organizations like al-Qaida are broad-
ening their recruiting efforts to individuals not fitting "the
profile" adolescent males of Middle Eastern descent. As
the number of would-be terrorists who don't fit this profile
grows, racial-profiling (whether it's moral or not) will be
increasingly ineffective. This only furthers the need to focus
on those countries where terrorist attacks are most likely to
originate.
It is unfortunate that any group or nationality must be
singled out for enhanced security. This profiling is antago-
nistic and may even contribute to perceptions of America as
closed-minded or even prejudiced.
But when there are limited resources to accomplish such
a daunting task as preventing terrorist attacks, an addition-
al pat down or inspection is reasonable.
By focusing its efforts, the TSA is not assessing undue
blame on these countries but rather fulfilling its obligation
to the American people by pointing its flashlight (hopefully
not just a metaphorical flashlight) where it's most likely to
produce results.
The burden is now on the Obama administration to build
goodwill with the international community in spite of these
increased security measures. Hopefully as anti-America
sentiments decrease, so too will the need for such profil-
ing.

Help wanted: Desperately seeking... you


t's that time again.
While students all over Gainesville are focused on
gathering textbooks and mapping their class routes to
pass Starbucks, we at the Alligator are pulling out our hair
and scrambling for staff.
Yes, we knew it was coming. Yes, we probably should
have started our search earlier. But the fact is that we are des-
perately seeking students for every position imaginable. So
come on over and bring your friends, neighbors, chinchilla or
anyone else who's interested to our open house Friday from
2 p.m. to 5 p.m. at 1105 W University Ave. the old vine-
covered building next to Karma Cream.
But Friday is a long time away four more issues of the
Alligator so if you're really excited, you can send resumes
and samples to apply@alligator.org and start writing (or
photographing, or cartooning, or doing handstands for our
entertainment) immediately.
We have openings for an opinions editor, photographers,
videographers, columnists, news writers, the Avenue writ-
ers, cartoonists, sports writers, graphic artists, copy editors,
anyone who knows anything about Web sites, anyone who
knows anything about anything, and anyone who knows
nothing about anything. (Well, maybe not so much of the
last one.)
That's where you come in.
Whether your major is journalism, economics, political
science, ballet or wearing lots of orange and blue, we want
you to apply.
In fact, a certain opinions editor who is abandoning us for
a fancy Washington, D.C., internship is an economics major.
If he can write editorials, anyone can.
If you want to write news stories, we ask that you can
form a sentence and be objective. If you want to be opinions
editor or write for the opinions section, we ask that you be
super opinionated and willing to keep up with what's going
on locally and/or nationally. If you want to do anything vi-
sual, we ask that you... have eyes. See? We're very flexible.


Emily Fuggetta
and Chelsea


As cheesy as it sounds, we really do
want to represent the Student Body,
and the best way we can do that is to
pull our staff from all spectra of... well,
the Student Body.
However, this job is not for the
faint of heart. It requires work and
dedication. We should also mention


Keenan that you'll spend most of your humble
Editorial Notebok paycheck on coffee and food from the
lettersalligator or restaurants within walking distance of
___________ our office.
It's true we work five days a
week and hardly get any sleep (there's a big, comfy couch in
the office), but we have fun. We decorate the office when it's
our co-workers birthdays, we make brownies, watch bad TV
shows and eat a lot of Mexican food.
If that's not tempting, consider how great a job at the larg-
est student-run paper in the U.S. will look on your resume.
We're also ranked eighth in the nation, in case you were
wondering.
We offer a competitive salary, and your paycheck will ex-
ceed the wages of a stay-at-home mom, a migrant farmer and
a soup kitchen volunteer.
Still not convinced?
Consider this: We aren't above paying you in hugs and
baked goods in addition to that big, fat paycheck.
Seriously though, we need you.
So if you're confident, imagine 35,000 people reading your
work every day. And if not, rest assured that most people
only skim, anyway. Either way, you'll be entertained by the
crazies who call, e-mail, and, yes, even actually send letters
about how outrageous and horrible we are.
So send us an e-mail now while you ride the bus to your
next class (we know you all have smart phones).

Letter to the Editor
The real problem with health care in
America: American doctors are exhibit-
ing astronomical, unjustified, uncontrol-
lable greed.
The solution: The government should
fix health care prices.
If we do not control their godless
greed, doctors who have bankrupted
us as individuals in the past will now
bankrupt us as a society. Price-fixing
measures must come soon; the alterna-


tive is bankruptcy. The uncontrollable,
horrible greed of the entire American
medical system must be controlled.
Health care for all: great.
But at astronomical, unjustified, un-
controllable prices for Americans: god-
less!

Saints rising: a journey into the lives of missionaries


By CJ PRUNER
Alligator Writer

Editors' note: Every year, more than
52,000 Mormon missionaries descend
upon the world. This is a four-part series
that follows two such messengers.
God, Guns and Glory
When you're staring down the barrel of
a 12-gauge shotgun, the Promised Land can
either look very hazy or pretty close de-
pending on your outlook on life.
The only thing standing between James
Tate and a round of angry shells tearing
through his anatomy was his Book of Mor-
mon and a belief that there was a God and
that He had made him fast real fast.
"We got to go," insisted a hushed voice,
carrying traces of urgency.
As Tate firmly jerked at the passenger's


side handle to the 2006 red Toyota Corolla
that would take him away from the madness,
he couldn't help but give way to a sweeping
tide of sadness. Behind the pitch-black dark-
ness that blanketed pine trees and mobile
homes lived a soul a thriving, beautiful
soul that wanted to reach out for something
more.
Salvation would have to wait.
As he sat back against the cold leather
car seat, a mist of sweat seeping through his
short brown hair, his eyes peered through the
window and stole a glance at the hollering
bald-headed figure adorned in a ragged shirt
and cutoff jeans. Before his mind could wrap
around what had just happened, the ignition
roared to life, announcing retreat.
When he had submitted his name to be-
come a missionary for the Church of Jesus
Christ of Latter-day Saints, Tate understood
that his work would require a lot of faith
and discipline to make it through the rough


patches. Nobody had ever told him, how-
ever, that he would need a bulletproof vest
to defend himself against shotgun-wielding,
testosterone-infused, redneck ex-boyfriends
of baptism candidates.
He had already had a long day, helping a
local Mormon ward construct the set for its
play while getting his daily
National dosage of slammed doors and
News adamant refusals. But he for-
got about those things when
he flipped open his rumbling cell phone,
which would summon him into the night.
For Tate and other missionaries, the call
doesn't end-it only gets louder.
Summoned Forth
It came on April 8, 2009. Bound in a thick
manila envelope, it took nearly all the space
within the mail box, shoving the bills and
coupon lists aside.
What laid inside was enough to bring


Tate's stomach to an abrupt standstill. He
knew it was coming. He had been waiting for
this package since he was 10, saving up the
money he made through household chores
and part-time jobs in anticipation.
Inside were papers that would tell him
where he would spend the next two years. As
he called his parents to tell them the news, his
mind flashed with possibilities pertaining to
where he would be going. Missionary papers
are like a cruel game of global roulette; they
could order you to any part of the world that
they saw fit. Tate could end up a few hours
away from his hometown of Mesa, Ariz., or
he could be sent to the jungles of Uruguay,
like his older brother, Zach.
"Oh man, I'm terrible with languages, and
I've got a soft stomach," said Tate, whose
brother had to eat sheep stomach soup while
on his mission. "I was not about to have
that."

Students shape


and mold for class


* THIRTY STUDENTS ARE
IN THE PROGRAM.

By ELIZABETH BEHRMAN
Alligator Writer

In an era of instant com-
munication ruled by texting
and e-mails, Chandra DeBuse
molds her artistic message
with something more perma-
nent- clay.
DeBuse, a master's student
in the UF Ceramics program,
is a potter who focuses on
creating functional vessels for
tableware, such as mugs, cups
and bowls.
She is one of 10 graduate
students and one of about 30
total students in UF's Ceram-
ics program.
Students in the program
work with clay to create figure
sculptures and sculptural ob-
jects.
UF ceramics professor Lin-
da Arbuckle said one of the
great things about the program
is that it offers no limit to the
creations students can make
with clay.
"I think the idea of making


something permanent from a
permeable object is pretty ex-
citing," Arbuckle said.
Students interested in re-
ceiving a degree in ceramics
have to apply to get into the
program as juniors, but the UF
School of Art and Art History
offers an introductory level ce-
ramics class for nonmajor stu-
dents.
Arbuckle said students from
a variety of majors and special-
izations, including architecture
and pre-dental students, take
the introductory course.
However, students inter-
ested in getting a degree in
ceramics can use the program
as a networking opportunity
and a chance to meet visiting
artists.
DeBuse said the ceram-
ics program has developed a
strong sense of community
When someone makes a
life-size sculpture, they need
help lifting it into the kiln, and
their classmates are there to as-
sist them.
"The nature of working in
clay is that you are part of a
community," DeBuse said.


Subway, Jamba Juice


headed to
By CAROLYN TILLO
Alligator Staff Writer

UF students will soon be able to
savor subs and smoothies alongside
their stash of Turlington fliers.
A new building housing Sub-
way and Jamba Juice will be built on
the southwest comer of Turlington
Hall, near where the UF Informa-
tion Booth is located, wrote Lionel
Dubay, the director of the UF Busi-
ness Services Division, in an e-mail.
Dubay said the project's con-
tractor has begun clearing the area
where the new building will stand
in preparation for construction.
The construction will be complet-
ed around May.
He said the Business Services
Division and Aramark, the campus
food service contractor, will pay for
the project, which will cost about
$1.5 million.
"We are very optimistic that this
new food service facility will pro-
vide added food service options and
convenience to our students, faculty
and staff," Dubay wrote.
Dubay said the UF Information


Turlington
Booth, run by Alpha Phi Omega na-
tional service fraternity, will remain
standing and open during construc-
tion but will be demolished once the
new facility is open.
A new booth connected to the
building with the restaurants will re-
place the old UF Information Booth,
Dubay said.
Dubay said demolishing the old
booth will help minimize some of the
congestion near Turlington Plaza, an
area filled with traffic
On that will keep Subway
CampuS and Jamba Juice busy.
Ben Meyers, a UF
sophomore and a member of the
Food Service Advisory Committee
that helped approve the project, said
the new restaurants will be designed
as more accessible eating options for
students on the go.
Rather than running into the Re-
itz Union Food Court or the Hub
and waiting in line, students can
grab food on their way to class or as
they step off the bus, he said.
"I think it's really in the center of
campus for most undergrads, and it
really serves them a lot better," Mey-
ers said.

STATE

Fewer migrants flock to Florida


By ANDREW NORRIS
Alligator Contributing Writer

Florida is known as a destination for snowbirds,
but new data released by the U.S. Census Bureau
hints at a new trend.
The data shows Florida has seen a decline in the
number of people who migrate to the state from oth-
er states.
In 2005, Florida had an influx of more than 250,000
domestic migrants and was considered a fast-grow-
ing state during a mid-decade population boom.
However, the state has recently been suffering
losses in domestic migration, losing 9,000 Florida
residents in 2008 and 31,000 in 2009 due to out-mi-
gration.
Ken Johnson, a sociology professor and a senior
demographer at the University of New Hampshire
Carsey Institute, published an article in which he
notes the recession as a major contributing factor in
Florida's migratory hang-ups.
"The slowdown means the fast-growing states
aren't getting people and the slow-growing states
that send migrants to places like Florida are losing
less," Johnson said.
He said there are two main groups of migrants
moving to Florida: older, retirement-aged migrants
who are often affluent and younger migrants who
have the potential to have children.
But the overall population in Florida still contin-


ues to grow, Johnson said.
He said the growth is due to migration from other
countries as well as the population's natural increase
rate.
Johnson's article notes that the natural increase
rate, the amount of births in relation to deaths, will
now play a more important part in maintaining pop-
ulation size.
Stan Smith, a professor in the UF economics de-
partment and director of the Bureau
of Economic and Business Research,
said the decline in migration result-
ing from the recession is in turn pro-
longing the economic downturn.
"Florida usually is a national
leader in adding jobs but has lost
Smith more than 800,000 jobs in the past
two years," Smith said. "People
moving to Florida to look for jobs are leaving or just
not coming in the first place."
Smith said Gainesville has been at least partially
spared due to UF's presence as well as Gainesville's
large medical community and amount of government
jobs.
However, Smith said some people view a decline
in migration and population as a positive thing.
"It puts less pressure on the environment," Smith
said. "A decline means a slower increase in the need
for new roads and new schools and less of a loss of
green space or agricultural lands."


Store will likely close by March


GOERINGS, from page 1

have experienced rough financial patch-
es, they have enjoyed the backing of
publishers, according to Rider.
The same backing wasn't extended to
Goerings, Rider said.
"(The other bookstores) were deemed
too big to fail," he said. "They got anoth-
er Christmas."
The store was originally located at
University Avenue and 13th Street,
where it was briefly a Little Professor
Book Center franchise owned and oper-
ated by Harvey and Viola Goering.
Originally, Goerings had two sepa-
rate operations: one for textbooks, an-
other for trade store operations.
However, the trade store folded due
to mounting pressure from competing
bookstores, and the store merged both
operations into its current location be-
hind St. Augustine's Catholic Church.
The store announced roughly six
weeks ago they would not be providing
textbooks for the upcoming semester.
"There are a lot of folks who preferred
us because we were less expensive and


more dependable than the other book-
stores," Rider said.
The store's lasting legacy, Rider said,
will be the number of years the store has
remained open and its ability to pro-
vide an important literary niche for the
Gainesville community.
"At this point in time,
Gainesville just isn't
friendly to bookstores. It's
disappointing."
Thomas Rider
co-owner of Goerings

"If you add up all the years that we
(book-sellers and past and present staff)
have worked, you're looking at 280
years of book-selling; that's a lot of expe-
rience," Rider said. "New student bodies
will come and go, and fewer of them will
remember us. It will take longer for the
townspeople to forget us."
The store will likely close by March
1, although no official date has been set,
Rider said. There are no plans to open a
new store at a different location.

POLLUTION, from page 1

Sikes said UF committed no intentional wrongdo-
ing.
"The EPA regulations are very technical and UF had
a different interpretation than the EPA of what the regu-
lation required," she said.
ZEP Formula 768, the solution in which the tetrachlo-
roethylene originated, was used to clean lawn equip-
ment on a concrete slab outside a maintenance build-
ing.
On Sikes said UF stopped using the solvent
Campus almost immediately upon learning that
EPA had a concern.
Based on testing around the site, Sikes
said UF believes the impact of the tetrachloroethylene is
limited to the area around the concrete slab next to the
maintenance building.
Because the EPA expressed concern solely for the
groundwater and soil contamination, UF has not
checked into the health of the maintenance workers who
used the product.
UF was also fined for lesser offenses, such as not
properly labeling containers of mineral spirits and bat-
teries.

Broken part in heating system leaves campus chilly

By JOEY FLECHAS
Alligator Writer
Students looking for sanctuary from the
chilly weather on campus might find that
some buildings are not exactly warm and
cozy.
UF's primary heating system stopped
working several weeks ago due to a bro-
ken part in the turbine engine that keeps


the system going, according to an e-mail
sent out Monday night by Ed Poppell, UF
vice president for business affairs.
The jet engine had to be shipped back
to its manufacturer, General Electric Co.,
to be repaired.
UF spokesman Steve Orlando said the
unit was back on campus as of Monday
and undergoing tests.
"They are hoping to have everything


up and running by Wednesday," he said.
In the meantime, the university has
been using a back-up steam system that
produces less heat than the jet

do said.


"We make sure they get enough steam and
heat, and the rest of campus comes next."
He noted that the parts of campus far-
thest away from UF's Progress Energy co-
generation plant will probably have the
least heat.
This includes the northeast corner of
campus and Orlando's office.
"My office was a little chilly today," he
said.

22, ALLIGATOR U TUESDAY, JANUARY 5,2010


National Signing
The football season might have ended
for the Gators, but my favorite time of
the year is quickly approaching.
To me, the first Wednesday in Febru-
ary presents college football fans one of
the best things to look forward to in the
offseason.
On that day, your team's future starts
to take shape.
This year it is on Feb. 3, and it is also
known as National Signing Day.
As usual, this is supposed to be a great
day for Gators fans, but with questions
looming over the coaching staff and a
bunch of juniors expected to leave, Urban
Meyer can't afford to let any recruits get
away.
The Gators have already lost the com-
mitment of safety Matt Elam.
With two other safeties committed -
Demar Dorsey and Jonathan Dowling -
losing Elam is not the worst thing for the
Gators.

Cooper, Hernandez combine


for 292 receiving yards


FOOTBALL, from page 1

And just coming into the game, we
just were hitting and clicking, so
we kept going with it and ended
up obviously throwing for a lot of
yards."
"You hear a lot of guys talk
about dynasty around here
and taking the sport to a
new level, and I think we've
done that."
David Nelson
UF senior wide receiver


As was the case all season, senior
wide receiver Riley Cooper and ju-
nior tight end Aaron Hernandez
were the primary beneficiaries of
Tebow's passes.
Cooper hauled in seven passes
for 181 yards in his final game as


a Gator, including a 80-yard deep
ball down the left sideline, and Her-
nandez grabbed nine passes for 111
yards and a touchdown.
It was the first time two UF
players went over the century mark
in receiving yards since Andre
Caldwell and Percy Harvin did it in
the Gators' 49-22 win over Vander-
bilt on Nov. 3,2007.
Despite Meyer's health con-
cerns, coaching changes and a pos-
sible lack of motivation, the senior
class cemented a legacy that won't
soon be forgotten by Gators fans.
"You hear a lot of guys talk about
dynasty around here and taking
the sport to a new level, and I think
we've done that," said senior wide
receiver David Nelson, who caught
two passes for 37 yards. "We really
didn't care who we were going to
play tonight. We didn't care who
was going up against us, it could've
been the Dallas Cowboys."


Matt Tripp/ Alligator Staff
UF senior wide receiver Riley Cooper runs for a touchdown on an 80-yard catch-and-run during the
Gators' win over Cincinnati in the Sugar Bowl on Friday.

Gymnastics
The No. 4 UF gymnastics team
gears up for another season after
finishing fourth at the NCAA Champi-
onships last year.
Last season the team was
decimated by injuries and only eight
healthy gymnasts were available for
the championship meet.
This season, the team has added
five freshmen and should have every-
one back from injury, including senior
Amanda Castillo.
However, the Gators will be
without one of the gymnasts they
were most counting on. All-American
Melanie Sinclair was suspended
L indefinitely and is no
longer on the roster
because of her ar-
rest on three felony
charges.
The team travels to Norman,
Okla., to launch its season against
the Sooners.
Florida does have an advantage
in finally winning a national cham-
pionship that has been just out of
arms' reach for the last few year as
Gainesville is the site for the 2010
NCAA Championships.

Softball
There's no question what
the early season storyline is for
the softball team: How will they
be able to replace All-American
ace Stacey Nelson?
Welcome to the Stephanie
Brombacher era. The junior,
who went 42-0 with a 1.10
ERA in her first two seasons,
will take over for Nelson in the
circle.
Finding a No. 2 to fill in
Brombacher's old role will also

Parsons' desperation heave caps turbulent break

By ADAM BERRY
Alligator Staff Writer
aberry@alligator org

RALEIGH, N.C. With Florida down by two
points and only two seconds remaining in over-
time, Chandler Parsons pulled down a rebound off a
missed free throw, took one dribble and let the ball fly
just before the final buzzer sounded.
Parsons said he doesn't usually take three-quarter-
court shots in practice unlike some of his team-
mates but his heave found the bottom of the net,
sending the Gators into a raucous celebration on the
floor of the RBC Center as UF prevailed 62-61 against
North Carolina State on Sunday.
"I feel like someone's about to
pinch me right now, and I'm gonna
wake up from a dream," Parsons
.Men's said. "I've never had this feeling in
Basketball my life, and I'm just glad I could step
up for my team and knock it down."
UF (11-3) had a dismal shooting
performance from beyond the arc against NC State
(10-4), going just 3 of 24 from 3-point range, but the
shots fell when they were most important.
Freshman guard Kenny Boynton hit a leaning
3-pointer with 14 seconds left to pull within two, and
S sophomore point guard Erving Walker drained four
S free throws in the final seven seconds.
The Wolfpack had plenty of chances to put the
game away after jumping out to a 53-48 lead that held
for nearly half of the overtime period. But they failed

Meyer needs trip to Bourbon St.


As expected, the Urban Meyer situ-
ation dominated the talk lead-
ing up to Florida's Sugar Bowl
matchup against Cincinnati.
Coaches and players on both sides
were constantly hit with questions like:
What did you think when you heard
he'd retire?
Do you think he can change his ways
and still be successful?
Are you afraid he might die?
That last one sounds pretty ridiculous,
but then again, we don't really know
what's up with Meyer's health. He's
keeping the specifics quiet, and that leads
some to run wild with speculation.
To me, he's a very successful and su-
per-rich 45-year-old who needs to take
a vacation, step back and re-evaluate
the way he operates to cut down some
stress.

UF RECRUITING

UF lands two commits


By GEORGE C. PAPPAS
Alligator Writer

ST. PETERSBURG The Gators' 51-24
victory over Cincinnati in the Sugar Bowl
on Friday marked the end of an era for the
nation's most celebrated senior class and
ushered in a period of uncertainty heading
into the 2010 season.
Seven members of the defense graduat-
ed and as many as eight juniors on Florida
may opt for an early start at a career in the
NFL.
But UF's incoming recruiting class gave
Gators fans something to look forward to
with their performances at the Under Ar-
mour All-America Game on Saturday at
Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg.
The seven UF commits entering the
game shined, as safeties Jonathan Dowling
(Bradenton Southeast High) and Demar
Dorsey (Lauderdale Lakes Boyd Anderson
High) led the way.
The three-star and four-star prospects,
respectively, combined for three intercep-


tions one of which Dowling returned for
a score and declared their squad's sec-
ondary to be a "no-fly zone."
Palmdale (Calif.) High cornerback
Joshua Shaw, another player committed to
helping replace a Florida defensive back-
field that could lose three juniors to the
NFL Draft, added a pick of his own.
"The Florida secondary came up big to-
night," Shaw said. "Hopefully we showed
the fans that our secondary is going to be
one of the best for years to come."
The good news kept coming for the
Gators, as they added two more commits
during the game: Staten Island (N.Y.) Cur-
tis High defensive end Dominique Easley
(the game's co-MVP) and Pahokee High
receiver Chris Dunkley, ranked as the na-
tion's No. 8 wideout by Rivals.com.
"The group of players here, the people
that I am going to be with for the next four
years of my life, really helped me make my
decision," Easley said. "I always wanted to
be a Gator and to be a part of the history.

* Florida CU, Cincinnati '4


SWAMP STUDS
It had to end this way. Tebow wasn't playing in the game he had hoped
for, but he turned in the most jaw-dropping performance of his career.
Tebow's 533 total yards shattered the BCS record of 467 set by Texas
quarterback Vince Young in 2006, a number Tebow had surpassed before
the end of the third quarter. He also set a new UF record for total offense
Tim Tebow in a game. He started the game 12-for-12, and his halftime statline (20-
QB, Sr of-23, 320 yards, three touchdowns) was better than any of his full-game
QB, Sr. outputs since the 2007 FAU game.
31-of-35 passing, 482 yds, 3TD; 14 rush, 51 yds, TD


Cincinnati's Mardy Gilyard came into the game with most of the hype,
but Cooper left the Superdome with the distinction of the game's best
wideout. His statline blew up thanks to an 80-yard touchdown catch, but
his most impressive work came on a 44-yard grab in the third quarter. On
that catch, he reached back over Cincy defensive back Dominique Battle's
shoulder to haul in the pass, then wrestled it away after Battle tried to
snatch it. Cooper said he still plans to play baseball professionally, but his
eye-catching night in New Orleans could cause a change in plans.
7 catches, 181 yds, 1 TD


Riley
Cooper
WR, Sr.


It's pretty rare that a receiver puts up the numbers Hernandez did and
finishes a distant second on the team, but it's hard to overlook the
performance UF's tight end turned in. Hernandez was his usual self,
finding open spaces in the defense, showing sure hands and bullying
defenders after the catch, and it was clear that UC didn't have an answer
for him. Florida fans will keep their fingers crossed that Hernandez turns
down the NFL to come back for his senior year, but if he leaves, at least
it's on a high note.
9 catches, 111 yds, TD


TOP THREE PLAYS


TURNING POINT
The only turning point in this one
was when the game turned from an
easy win to a rout. The Bearcats
got on the board with 3:11 left in
the first half to cut the lead to 23-3,
but just nine seconds later, Cooper
turned his defender around, hauled
in a perfect pass from Tebow and
streaked down the sideline en
route to an 80-yard touchdown
that made the score 30-3. The play
sucked the last ounce of hope from
Cincinnati fans and gave most
impartial TV viewers a reason to
change the channel at halftime.

"We're very, very fortu-
nate to win. It was one of
those shots where there's
nothing diagrammed,
there's no play, there's noth-
ing like that," Florida coach
Billy Donovan said. "It was
just a guy who took the ball,
and you talk about strange
things happening. If the ball
bounced anywhere except
where it bounced, maybe a
different guy shoots it."
With the victory, the
Gators will enter their South-
eastern Conference schedule
on a three-game winning
streak despite a disastrous
start to their break.
Florida has gone 3-3 since
Dec. 9, losing three straight
to Syracuse (85-73 on Dec. 10


in Tampa), Richmond (56-53
on Dec. 19 in Sunrise) and
at home against South Ala-
bama (67-66 on Dec. 22). The
three-game skid knocked
the Gators out of the top 25,
where they enjoyed a brief
stay at as high as No. 10.
Despite struggling with
a multitude of injuries and
illnesses, UF bounced back
from the tough string of loss-
es with a 76-60 win against
American and a 79-38 rout
of Presbyterian, both in the
O'Connell Center.

Donovan said his team
needs to play defense like it
did against NC State in the
second half, when UF al-
lowed only 19 points, to find
success in the SEC. However,
he said the Gators also can't
afford to shoot like they did
against the Wolfpack.
"When you start getting
into the conference I'm
not trying to put pressure
on our guys, but you've got
to make some shots," Dono-
van said. "It's really, really

Gators continue holiday success in conference opener


By EUGENIO TORRENS
Alligator Staff Writer
etorrens@alligator org

Freshman Jennifer George walked off
the court with a smile after sinking two free
throws that put her team up seven points with
2:37 left in the game.
The Gators went on to defeat Arkansas
59-53 to open Southeastern Conference play
Sunday.
"I've been going to the line a lot, but I
haven't been converting them," said George,
who came into the game shooting 61 percent
from the free-throw line. "I just told myself I
was going to make it. I just told myself to have
confidence and it's going to go in."
Days before Sunday's game, senior Steffi
Sorensen said she talked to the freshman
about the heightened intensity of a conference


game now that the Gators will only play SEC
opponents until March.
"Everything is just up another level,"
George said. "Each possession is critical, every
turnover, every basket, everything. And that's
the biggest thing I realized from SEC games
from non-conference games."
The first win of the new decade gave UF
(8-6, 1-0 SEC) its longest winning streak of the
season at three games. The Gators have gone
5-1 in their last six games since classes ended
for winter break. The 75-68 loss to High Point
in the confines of the O'Connell Center the
sole loss in that six-game stretch left a bad
taste in the team's mouth for the weeklong
Christmas break.
To end 2009, the Gators hosted Ohio and
Jacksonville and won both contests by an
average of 27.5 points. It was the confidence
boost the team needed before its trip to Fay-


etteville, Ark.
UF shot 75 percent (18 of 24) from the char-
ity stripe to put away the Razorbacks (8-6, 0-1
SEC) in a game that saw five lead changes and
seven ties. The Gators sank 11 of their last 15
free-throws to ice the game.
"When you win on the
road in the SEC, it's like get-
ting two wins. It's huge,"
Sorensen said. "It's a step in
the right direction for us. Ev-
eryone feels good, but at the
same time it's only going to
George get harder from here."
Coach Amanda Butler
said the team talked about how everything
was magnified in conference play, including
free-throw shooting.
UF was unable to rely on its 3-point shoot-
ing (5 of 19) against the Hogs, except for Lon-


nika Thompson, who scored nine of her 12
points on 3-pointers. While the 3-point shoot-
ing perhaps hasn't met the team's standard,
the team has been doing a better job generat-
ing a balanced offensive attack.
Center Azania Stewart has averaged 12.6
points in Florida's last five games and has shot
71 percent with a pair of career-high 18-point
games in an eight-day span.
George has also been progressing as a pres-
ence on the boards, bringing in 40 rebounds in
that 5-1 stretch.
Defensive rebounding was a highlight for
Butler because of the ability to hold Arkansas
to one-shot possessions.
"That was what I was most pleased with,"
Butler said. "We did a great job in the second
half in particular, on the defensive boards it
was something we didn't so well in the first
half."

Gators face uncertainties heading into offseason


By KYLE MAISTRI
Alligator Staff Writer
kmaistrn@alligator org

NEW ORLEANS Florida said
goodbye to the winningest class in
school history, the greatest player
in school history and its defensive
coordinator with a 51-24 win against
Cincinnati in the Sugar Bowl.
With Tim Tebow, Brandon
Spikes, Charlie Strong and others
on their way out the door, a lot of
uncertainty surrounds the future of
UF's program.
Coach Urban Meyer will take a
leave of absence and hand the reins
over temporarily to offensive
coordinator Steve Addazio, whose
only head coaching experience came
at Cheshire (Conn.)
High School.
"I feel a great ob-
ligation and an hon-
Football or to be able to hold
this thing together
for coach until he
gets back here," Addazio said. "If
we can give him this piece of stabil-
ity, that he knows this program is in
good shape and good hands and go-
ing well, then that's what we're gon-
na do. That's what we owe him."
Meyer said again after the game
he feels he will be back in the fall for
the start of the 2010 season to coach
a brand new football team.
John Brantley will take over for
Tebow at quarterback, but that may
be the only certain thing about next
season.
The defense loses starters Spikes,

Jermaine Cunningham, and that's

Cornerback Joe Haden has al- lap is expected to be a first-round

Anarew btanill / Alligator statl
UF offensive coordinator Steve Addazio will take over as interim head coach until Urban Meyer returns
from his leave of absence. Addazio's only previous head coaching experience was at a high school.


Safeties Ahmad Black and Major
Wright have also submitted their
papers to the advisory committee.
"I'll talk to my coaches and if
they think I'm ready, then I'll go,"
said Dunlap, who recorded two
sacks against the Bearcats.
All of those departures leave one
of the best defenses in the country in
a transition period for next season.
Spikes said he thinks freshman
Jon Bostic will take over his middle
linebacker position, depending on
who stays and the type of defense
UF will run with a new coordinator.
"Those younger players, they
know what we started, the legacy
we have here, and they just want to
keep it going," Spikes said.
On offense, wide receivers David
Nelson and Riley Cooper played
their last games as Gators, and a few
third-year players offensive line-
men Carl Johnson, Marcus Gilbert
and Mike and Maurkice Pouncey,
tight end Aaron Hernandez and
running back Chris Rainey still
have NFL decisions to make.
"You hear a lot of guys around
here talk about dynasty and taking
the sport to a new level, and I think
we've done that," Nelson said.
Now, the challenge will be stay-
ing on top with a different nucleus
of players, some of which have yet
to sign with UF.
"I'm going to do everything I can
to keep this train going in the right
direction," Meyer said when asked
if he plans to recruit over the next
month. "That all will be discussed in
the next few days."

Environmental Protection Agency inspectors said tetrachloroethylene levels in the soil and groundwater were higher than allowed by state regulations. Tetrachloroethylene is a colorless, sweetsmelling chemical and a non-flammable organic liquid. It is commonly used in aerosol dry-cleaning products and as a metal degreaser, according to the EPA. According to the International Agency for Research on Cancer, tetrachloroethylene is also known to cause liver damage and is suspected to cause cancer. At high levels, tetrachloroethylene could also Sikes cause damage to the nervous system, according to the Department of Health and Human Services. SEE POLLUTION, PAGE 10 By KYLE MAISTRI Alligator Staff Writer kmaistri@alligator org NEW ORLEANS -It didn't end with a Heisman Trophy or a BCS national championship. But it sure was memorable. Tim Tebow and Florida's senior class let the chance to win its third national championship in four years slip away after losing to Alabama in the Southeastern Conference Championship Game, but that didn't keep them from going out winners against Cincinnati (12-1). Tebow threw for 482 yards and three touchdowns as the Gators (13-1) rolled over the Bearcats 51-24 in the Sugar Bowl. With the win, UF became the first FBS program to win 13 games in back-to-back seasons. The senior class will leave Gainesville with two national championships, two SEC titles and a 48-7 record, the best in conference history. "That's a special group," UF coach Urban Meyer said. "They made a statement as freshmen that we want to go down as one of the best ever and let's put a little plan together and you guys stick together and follow the plan and let's see what happens. And they followed the plan." Giving Meyer plenty of time to plan has often resulted in big point totals in bowl games. But the offensive explosion -659 yards of total offense -was a bit surprising considering the way the Crimson Tide held the Gators to 13 points and 335 yards of offense. In conference games this season, including the SEC Championship Game, UF averaged 26 points and 371 yards of total offense per game. Whenever they stepped out of conference, the Gators feasted on opposing defenses. Florida averaged 48 points and 622 yards of total offense per game against its three non-conference bowl eligible opponents this season -Troy, Florida State and Cincinnati. In the Sugar Bowl, Tebow shattered his previous career high for passing yards 338 against Florida Atlantic in 2007 -and set a new BCS bowl record for total yards (533), breaking the 467-yard mark set by Texas' Vince Young against USC in the 2006 Rose Bowl. "I didn't see this coming as far as that many yards and everything," Tebow said. "I knew we had a good game plan. I knew we were going to try to spread it out a little bit. We felt like that would be successful.

TUESDAY, JANUARY 5, 2010 U ALLIGATOR, 3 Freeze hits Gainesville hard with temperatures in the 20s *STUDENTS ARE ADVISED NOT TO DRINK ALCOHOL AND TO WEAR LAYERS. By MELINDA CARSTENSEN Alligator Contributing Writer This week, those returning to Gainesville will be welcomed with new classes, new teachers and comparatively cooler weather. The cool weather is the result of an arctic air mass affecting Gainesville and the rest of Florida as far south as Lake Okeechobee. Temperatures in Gainesville are expected to drop to 21 degrees tonight and to 23 degrees on Wednesday night, said Phil Peterson, a forecaster at the National Weather Service in Jacksonville. This hard freeze is expected to hit Gainesville almost every night through Sunday, Peterson said. A hard freeze occurs when a temperature falls below 27 degrees Fahrenheit for two or more hours. Peterson said temperatures for this month are significantly lower than they were last January. Although there were two hard freezes in the middle of last January, Peterson said there was mostly warm weather in Gainesville. On Jan. 6, 2009, the high in Gainesville was 80 degrees, and the average monthly temperature was 17 degrees higher than normal, he said. "What's different about this air mass is that it's going to stay in one place for a week, which is very unusual," Peterson said. "This blocking pattern is happening all throughout the country." Lauren McKeague of the Florida Division of Emergency Management advises those experiencing hard freezes to follow the "Five P's" of cold weather safety: protecting people, protecting plants, protecting pets, protecting exposed pipes and practicing fire safety. The Florida Division of Emergency Management advises students to drink nonalcoholic fluids and wear multiple layers of loose-fitting, warm clothing. Students should also try to stay dry and in windprotected areas. "What's different about this air mass is that it's going to stay in one place for a week, which is very unusual. This blocking pattern is happening all throughout the country." Phil Peterson forecaster at the National Weather Service in Jacksonville The Florida Division of Emergency Management also warns against the indoor use of charcoal or other fuel-burning devices, such as grills that produce carbon monoxide. Peterson said residents should bring all potted plants inside and cover those that are outside with sheets or blankets. "Plants really need to be covered up if you can't bring them inside and insulated against the cold because we're talking a killing freeze here," he said. Because the air is extremely dry, Peterson advises that those in wooded areas be careful and exercise extreme caution when burning anything. For more information, visit www.FloridaDisaster. org.

4, ALLIGATOR U TUESDAY, JANUARY 5,2010 Locals have mixed views on health bill UF ALUMNI Gator launches jewelry line ABORTION IS A KEY FACTOR. ByCJ PRUNER Alligator Writer In a step toward strengthening President Barack Obama's call for health care reform, the U.S. Senate passed a bill on Christmas Eve aimed at overhauling America's health care system. The final bill, which passed 60 to 39, calls for the injection of $871 billion of government funds over the span of 10 years in order to provide more affordable health care for millions of Americans. Similar to the House bill, which passed in November, the Senate version has been met with mixed reactions. Liberals praise the legislation as a necessary measure, while conservatives are uncomfortable with the bill's heavy spending and potential invasion of the private sector. Ben Cavataro, president of the Florida College Democrats, praised the Senate's ability to pass a bill he said will provide health care to 30 million Americans, strengthen Medicare, reduce the federal deficit by $100 billion over the next 10 years and allow students to remain on their parents' health insurance until they turn 26. "It's really a big step forward," he said. "It's not easy to get 60 Senators to agree on anything, let alone something as big as health care reform." Cavataro said he is disappointed with the Senate bill's lack of a public option but believes its cuts to inefficient programs and provisions for low-income Americans will offer much-needed relief. Bryan Griffin, chairman of the UF College Republicans, views the Senate bill as reckless spending resulting from bribes made by politicians bent on staying in power. He said Democrats want to create public dependence on national health care, which would make it harder for voters to take them out of office. Griffin pointed to Medicaid provisions to states with Senators on the fence, such as Nebraska and Louisiana, as evidence of shady politicking and the Democrats' efforts to purchase votes. "The corruption is really starting to come through," he said. "If I saw someone in the UF Senate doing what they're doing in [the U.S. Senate] now, I'd do everything in my power to have them removed. What they are doing is criminal." As Americans continue to debate where federal money should go, the issue of abortion has also taken a place in the public spotlight. Under the Senate bill, Americans with government healthplans could use money for abortions as long as they make two premium payments: one for National abortion coverage News and another for all other medical needs. Staci Fox, CEO of Planned Parenthood of North Florida, opposes the "segregation of funds" and said these measures discourage women from accessing health services like abortion. "We don't want to go backwards and create more obstacles than women already have," she said. "It's time for Congress to trust women." Jennifer Cyr, the vice president of the UF Pro-Life Alliance, said most pro-life supporters would not want taxpayer money to fund abortion. "I wouldn't want my money to fund the killing of a person," Cyr said. Paying for abortions, according to Cyr, would represent a sense of disrespect for human dignity. While voters and representatives wrestle with the legislation's effects, both the House and Senate bills must go through a bipartisan conference committee before becoming law. By ERICA JOHNSON Alligator Writer During Amanda Levison's time at UF, she struggled to find gifts for her friends on a tight budget. She found her solution in jewelry. Levison, a 28-year-old psychotherapist from Fort Lauderdale, expanded her creativity with jewelry in 2006 to start AJ Designs, through which she makes and sells more than 90 pieces, ranging from bracelets to dog accessories. Levison traced her passion for handcrafted jewelry to a very early age. "I was about 7 or 8, and everyone was doing simple knotted bracelets, but I was "I'm not going to make something that I wouldn't want to keep, and I'm very much a jeans and flip-flops person, so I like to make things that are fit for work and play." Amanda Levison UF graduate doing really crazy designs," she said. When Levison worked as a camp counselor during her summer break from college, she learned how to create a bracelet using beads and soon became a craft store regular. These days, she gets inspiration for her pieces by browsing through magazines to see what's in style, but she said her personal style has a heavy influence on what she creates. "I'm not going to make something that I wouldn't want to keep, and I'm very much a jeans and flip-flops person, so I like to make things that are fit for work and play," she said. She often uses semiprecious stones in her designs, the most popular being pearls and crystal. The stones she works with can range from $35 to $200, she said. But Levison said it's important to her to keep her pieces affordable. Her least expensive designs, beaded key chains, cost $12. She is working to get her creations into more stores and she someday hopes to have her own practice in psychotherapy so she can devote more time to developing her designs. "I enjoy every aspect of what I do, especially the fact that I have been able to keep doing it, even though it started as a hobby," she said. "I enjoy other people appreciating my art."

TUESDAY, JANUARY 5, 2010 U ALLIGATOR, 5 AROUND GAINESVILLE Taco Bell joins national shift toward healthier eating By NERI STEIN Alligator Contributing Writer Some resolutions this year might come with a side of salsa. As many people made New Year's resolutions, Taco Bell introduced its new Drive-Thru Diet, which includes seven new menu items each with nine grams of fat or less and no more than 340 calories. Taco Bell's new diet also comes with its own spokeswoman, Christine Dougherty -reminiscent of Subway's Jared Fogle -as it joins the ranks of other fast food chains that aim to help customers lose weight by eating their food. Dougherty, who lost 54 pounds by joining Taco Bell's Frescolution by ordering items from the restaurant's Fresco menu, aims to align the "fourth meal" restaurant with the health-conscious market. The new diet items have a layer of fiesta salsa in place of cheese usually found on any item at Taco Bell. On its Web site, Taco Bell lists "We already get lots of orders with no dairy and add salsa. You can do it with anything on the menu." Cassie Tillman assistant manager at the Reitz Union Taco Bell a disclaimer, informing potential dieters the new Drive-Thru Diet actually isn't a diet at all. Dougherty is quoted as saying her results aren't typical. She alludes to making other sensible choices aside from the Drive-Thru Diet, but she fails to mention what those other choices are. At least one Taco Bell, the Reitz Union location, isn't participating in the Frescolution. Cassie Tillman, assistant manager at the Reitz' Taco Bell, said the fiesta salsa has been available for at least a year now, but she isn't sure if people like it for dietary reasons or personal preference. Tillman said the new DriveThru Diet menu won't make its way to campus because it's essentially already here. "We already get lots of orders with no dairy and add salsa," Tillman said. "You can do it with anything on the menu." Tillman also added the new diet probably wouldn't have much of an effect at UF's location, saying another Dougherty isn't likely to pop up at a college. "It depends on the students, and if they want to eat healthy," she said. UF senior wins scholarship to study at UK university He plans to pursue a Ph.D. in biochemistry By ELIZABETH BEHRMAN Alligator Writer Steven Robinette was working in a laboratory in mid-November when he received the e-mail. The UF senior found out he was one of 35 students across the country and the first from UF to receive the Marshall Scholarship. "I just couldn't believe it," he said. The scholarship, created by the U.K. government after the implementation of the Marshall Plan in 1953, will enable Robinette to study for at least two years at Imperial College London as he pursues a Ph.D. in biochemistry. Robinette said he has been looking into scholarships like the Marshall Scholarship since he got the information during the UF preview orientation. "I've known for forever that I wanted to go live in Britain for at least a little while," he said. The scholarship recipients got to choose in which school in the U.K. they wanted to study. Robinette spent his junior year studying at Imperial College London as a Barry M. Goldwater scholar and said he is excited to return. "It makes it less intimidating," he said. Robinette, who will graduate with a bachelor's degree in biochemistry and molecular biology in April, said he will enter as a masRobinette term's student but wants to get funding to stay for a third year to get his Ph.D. He said the application process was pretty standard, including an online application, an interview and four letters of recommendation. He said UF biomedical engineering professor Art Edison, who has been working and doing research with Robinette since Robinette was a freshman, was one of the people who inspired him the most throughout the course of his studies. Edison said Robinette is a very hardworking and deserving student. He said he is a perfect example of how an undergraduate student can take advantage of the research opportunities at UF. "He's going to go on to be a very wellknown, well-regarded scientist," Edison said. When you need it!

6, ALLIGATOR U TUESDAY, JANUARY 5,2010 Blacklisted U.S. right to focus security efforts R residents of troubled nations like Afghanistan, Somalia and Iraq face daily struggles that can sometimes mean ife or limb. So it would stand to reason that an extra pat down at the airport would seem inconsequential, even trivial, to someone with such an intimate knowledge of what real hassles are. But a recent push by the U.S. for tighter security on international flights -essentially an extra pat down and carryon bag search -has drawn harsh criticism. On Monday, these measures were put in place in response to a Nigerian man's attempt to ignite explosives on a Detroit-bound flight. According to the Associated Press, 14 countries were named in the new guidelines, including official state sponsors of terror such as Iran, Cuba, Sudan and Syria. While the security risk posed by those few flights originating in Cuba is essentially zero, passengers from the other countries named may represent a legitimate threat to the U.S. These include Yemen, Libya, Nigeria and Lebanon; major acts of terrorism have been carried out or attempted by individuals from these countries in the recent past. Critics raise the point that the attack that brought on this increased security originated in Amsterdam. It is true that any flight, regardless of its origin, could be a target. But the choice to focus limited resources on those countries that pose the highest risk is wise, especially given the relatively poor security measures previously in place in these countries. Given this narrow focus, the Nigerian Information Minister Dora Akunyili said Monday that these guidelines are discriminatory. Parallels are drawn to racial profiling, a subject with which U.S. security agencies, as well as the Transportation Security Administration in particular, have had a troubled past. But the measures affect all passengers from those countries listed, regardless of race or ethnicity. Further, according to NPR, terrorist organizations like al-Qaida are broadening their recruiting efforts to individuals not fitting "the profile" -adolescent males of Middle Eastern descent. As the number of would-be terrorists who don't fit this profile grows, racial-profiling (whether it's moral or not) will be increasingly ineffective. This only furthers the need to focus on those countries where terrorist attacks are most likely to originate. It is unfortunate that any group or nationality must be singled out for enhanced security. This profiling is antagonistic and may even contribute to perceptions of America as closed-minded or even prejudiced. But when there are limited resources to accomplish such a daunting task as preventing terrorist attacks, an additional pat down or inspection is reasonable. By focusing its efforts, the TSA is not assessing undue blame on these countries but rather fulfilling its obligation to the American people by pointing its flashlight (hopefully not just a metaphorical flashlight) where it's most likely to produce results. The burden is now on the Obama administration to build goodwill with the international community in spite of these increased security measures. Hopefully as anti-America sentiments decrease, so too will the need for such profiling. l the independent florida Chelsea Keenan EDITOR Emily Fuggetta J Hunter Sizemore MANAGING EDITORS Will Olsen OPINIONS EDITOR The Alligator encourages comments from readers Letters to the editor should not exceed 150 words (about one etter-sized page) They mustbe typed, double-spaced and must includethe author's name, classification and phone number Names wiii be withheld if the writer shows just cause We reserve the right to edit for length, grammar, styie and iibei Send letters to ietters@aiiigatororg, bring them to 1105 W University Aye or send them to P0 Box 14257, GainesviIle, FL 32604-2257Columns of about 450 words about original topics and editorial cartoons are also welcome Questions?

8, ALLIGATOR U TUESDAY, JANUARY 5,2010 Saints rising: a journey into the lives of missionaries ByCJ PRUNER Alligator Writer Editors' note: Every year, more than 52,000 Mormon missionaries descend upon the world. This is a four-part series that follows two such messengers. God, Guns and Glory When you're staring down the barrel of a 12-gauge shotgun, the Promised Land can either look very hazy or pretty close -depending on your outlook on life. The only thing standing between James Tate and a round of angry shells tearing through his anatomy was his Book of Mormon and a belief that there was a God and that He had made him fast -real fast. "We got to go," insisted a hushed voice, carrying traces of urgency. As Tate firmly jerked at the passenger's side handle to the 2006 red Toyota Corolla that would take him away from the madness, he couldn't help but give way to a sweeping tide of sadness. Behind the pitch-black darkness that blanketed pine trees and mobile homes lived a soul -a thriving, beautiful soul that wanted to reach out for something more. Salvation would have to wait. As he sat back against the cold leather car seat, a mist of sweat seeping through his short brown hair, his eyes peered through the window and stole a glance at the hollering bald-headed figure adorned in a ragged shirt and cutoff jeans. Before his mind could wrap around what had just happened, the ignition roared to life, announcing retreat. When he had submitted his name to become a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Tate understood that his work would require a lot of faith and discipline to make it through the rough patches. Nobody had ever told him, however, that he would need a bulletproof vest to defend himself against shotgun-wielding, testosterone-infused, redneck ex-boyfriends of baptism candidates. He had already had a long day, helping a local Mormon ward construct the set for its play while getting his daily National dosage of slammed doors and News adamant refusals. But he forgot about those things when he flipped open his rumbling cell phone, which would summon him into the night. For Tate and other missionaries, the call doesn't end-it only gets louder. Summoned Forth It came on April 8, 2009. Bound in a thick manila envelope, it took nearly all the space within the mail box, shoving the bills and coupon lists aside. What laid inside was enough to bring Tate's stomach to an abrupt standstill. He knew it was coming. He had been waiting for this package since he was 10, saving up the money he made through household chores and part-time jobs in anticipation. Inside were papers that would tell him where he would spend the next two years. As he called his parents to tell them the news, his mind flashed with possibilities pertaining to where he would be going. Missionary papers are like a cruel game of global roulette; they could order you to any part of the world that they saw fit. Tate could end up a few hours away from his hometown of Mesa, Ariz., or he could be sent to the jungles of Uruguay, like his older brother, Zach. "Oh man, I'm terrible with languages, and I've got a soft stomach," said Tate, whose brother had to eat sheep stomach soup while on his mission. "I was not about to have that."

TUESDAY, JANUARY 5, 2010 U ALLIGATOR, 9 Students shape and mold for class 0 THIRTY STUDENTS ARE IN THE PROGRAM. By ELIZABETH BEHRMAN Alligator Writer In an era of instant communication ruled by texting and e-mails, Chandra DeBuse molds her artistic message with something more permanentclay. DeBuse, a master's student in the UF Ceramics program, is a potter who focuses on creating functional vessels for tableware, such as mugs, cups and bowls. She is one of 10 graduate students and one of about 30 total students in UF's Ceramics program. Students in the program work with clay to create figure sculptures and sculptural objects. UF ceramics professor Linda Arbuckle said one of the great things about the program is that it offers no limit to the creations students can make with clay. "I think the idea of making something permanent from a permeable object is pretty exciting," Arbuckle said. Students interested in receiving a degree in ceramics have to apply to get into the program as juniors, but the UF School of Art and Art History offers an introductory level ceramics class for nonmajor students. Arbuckle said students from a variety of majors and specializations, including architecture and pre-dental students, take the introductory course. However, students interested in getting a degree in ceramics can use the program as a networking opportunity and a chance to meet visiting artists. DeBuse said the ceramics program has developed a strong sense of community When someone makes a life-size sculpture, they need help lifting it into the kiln, and their classmates are there to assist them. "The nature of working in clay is that you are part of a community," DeBuse said. Subway, Jamba Juice headed to By CAROLYN TILLO Alligator Staff Writer UF students will soon be able to savor subs and smoothies alongside their stash of Turlington fliers. A new building housing Subway and Jamba Juice will be built on the southwest corner of Turlington Hall, near where the UF Information Booth is located, wrote Lionel Dubay, the director of the UF Business Services Division, in an e-mail. Dubay said the project's contractor has begun clearing the area where the new building will stand in preparation for construction. The construction will be completed around May. He said the Business Services Division and Aramark, the campus food service contractor, will pay for the project, which will cost about $1.5 million. "We are very optimistic that this new food service facility will provide added food service options and convenience to our students, faculty and staff," Dubay wrote. Dubay said the UF Information Turlington Booth, run by Alpha Phi Omega national service fraternity, will remain standing and open during construction but will be demolished once the new facility is open. A new booth connected to the building with the restaurants will replace the old UF Information Booth, Dubay said. Dubay said demolishing the old booth will help minimize some of the congestion near Turlington Plaza, an area filled with traffic On that will keep Subway CampUS and Jamba Juice busy. Ben Meyers, a UF sophomore and a member of the Food Service Advisory Committee that helped approve the project, said the new restaurants will be designed as more accessible eating options for students on the go. Rather than running into the Reitz Union Food Court or the Hub and waiting in line, students can grab food on their way to class or as they step off the bus, he said. "I think it's really in the center of campus for most undergrads, and it really serves them a lot better," Meyers said. WE WANT "A DIFFERENT WORLD CANNOT BE BUILT BY INDIFFERENT PEOPLE."

10, ALLIGATOR U TUESDAY, JANUARY 5,2010 STATE Fewer migrants flock to Florida By ANDREW NORRIS Alligator Contributing Writer Florida is known as a destination for snowbirds, but new data released by the U.S. Census Bureau hints at a new trend. The data shows Florida has seen a decline in the number of people who migrate to the state from other states. In 2005, Florida had an influx of more than 250,000 domestic migrants and was considered a fast-growing state during a mid-decade population boom. However, the state has recently been suffering losses in domestic migration, losing 9,000 Florida residents in 2008 and 31,000 in 2009 due to out-migration. Ken Johnson, a sociology professor and a senior demographer at the University of New Hampshire Carsey Institute, published an article in which he notes the recession as a major contributing factor in Florida's migratory hang-ups. "The slowdown means the fast-growing states aren't getting people and the slow-growing states that send migrants to places like Florida are losing less," Johnson said. He said there are two main groups of migrants moving to Florida: older, retirement-aged migrants who are often affluent and younger migrants who have the potential to have children. But the overall population in Florida still continues to grow, Johnson said. He said the growth is due to migration from other countries as well as the population's natural increase rate. Johnson's article notes that the natural increase rate, the amount of births in relation to deaths, will now play a more important part in maintaining population size. Stan Smith, a professor in the UF economics department and director of the Bureau of Economic and Business Research, said the decline in migration resulting from the recession is in turn prolonging the economic downturn. "Florida usually is a national leader in adding jobs but has lost Smith more than 800,000 jobs in the past two years," Smith said. "People moving to Florida to look for jobs are leaving or just not coming in the first place." Smith said Gainesville has been at least partially spared due to UF's presence as well as Gainesville's large medical community and amount of government jobs. However, Smith said some people view a decline in migration and population as a positive thing. "It puts less pressure on the environment," Smith said. "A decline means a slower increase in the need for new roads and new schools and less of a loss of green space or agricultural lands." Store will likely close by March GOERINGS, from page 1 have experienced rough financial patches, they have enjoyed the backing of publishers, according to Rider. The same backing wasn't extended to Goerings, Rider said. "(The otherbookstores) were deemed too big to fail," he said. "They got another Christmas." The store was originally located at University Avenue and 13th Street, where it was briefly a Little Professor Book Center franchise owned and operated by Harvey and Viola Goering. Originally, Goerings had two separate operations: one for textbooks, another for trade store operations. However, the trade store folded due to mounting pressure from competing bookstores, and the store merged both operations into its current location behind St. Augustine's Catholic Church. The store announced roughly six weeks ago they would not be providing textbooks for the upcoming semester. "There are a lot of folks who preferred us because we were less expensive and more dependable than the other bookstores," Rider said. The store's lasting legacy, Rider said, will be the number of years the store has remained open and its ability to provide an important literary niche for the Gainesville community. "At this point in time, Gainesville just isn't friendly to bookstores. It's disappointing." Thomas Rider co-owner of Goerings "If you add up all the years that we (book-sellers and past and present staff) have worked, you're looking at 280 years of book-selling; that's a lot of experience," Rider said. "New student bodies will come and go, and fewer of them will remember us. It will take longer for the townspeople to forget us." The store will likely close by March 1, although no official date has been set, Rider said. There are no plans to open a new store at a different location. Denise Krigbaum, 43, and 17-month-old Clara Krigbaum browse through books in the children's section at Goerings Book Store on Monday afternoon. IT'S FINALLY HERE! UF also fined for lesser offenses POLLUTION, from page 1 Sikes said UF committed no intentional wrongdoing. "The EPA regulations are very technical and UF had a different interpretation than the EPA of what the regulation required," she said. ZEP Formula 768, the solution in which the tetrachloroethylene originated, was used to clean lawn equipment on a concrete slab outside a maintenance building. On Sikes said UF stopped using the solvent Campus almost immediately upon learning that EPA had a concern. Based on testing around the site, Sikes said UF believes the impact of the tetrachloroethylene is limited to the area around the concrete slab next to the maintenance building. Because the EPA expressed concern solely for the groundwater and soil contamination, UF has not checked into the health of the maintenance workers who used the product. UF was also fined for lesser offenses, such as not properly labeling containers of mineral spirits and batteries. o Me W1

UF's primary heating system stopped working several weeks ago due to a broken part in the turbine engine that keeps the system going, according to an e-mail sent out Monday night by Ed Poppell, UF vice president for business affairs. The jet engine had to be shipped back to its manufacturer, General Electric Co., to be repaired. UF spokesman Steve Orlando said the unit was back on campus as of Monday and undergoing tests. "They are hoping to have everything up and running by Wednesday," he said. In the meantime, the university has been using a back-up steam system that produces less heat than the jet On turbine.

22, ALLIGATOR U TUESDAY, JANUARY 5,2010 National Signing Day gives college football fans offseason excitement The football season might have ended for the Gators, but my favorite time of the year is quickly approaching. To me, the first Wednesday in February presents college football fans one of the best things to look forward to in the offseason. On that day, your team's future starts to take shape. This year it is on Feb. 3, and it is also known as National Signing Day. As usual, this is supposed to be a great day for Gators fans, but with questions looming over the coaching staff and a bunch of juniors expected to leave, Urban Meyer can't afford to let any recruits get away. The Gators have already lost the commitment of safety Matt Elam. With two other safeties committed Demar Dorsey and Jonathan Dowling losing Elam is not the worst thing for the Gators. But they can't afford to lose too many more. Not only will it hurt them in the future, but other commits will start worrying why others are jumping ship, especially with all the coaching issues. Over the next month, Meyer has to go out and hire replacement coaches and get them visiting the players they will coach to calm any nerves. Meyer has done a great job of recruiting positions that will soon be in high need for Florida, but he has done an even better job of getting those players a year or two earlier than needed so they don't have to jump right into playing. The defensive backfield for the Gators will be overhauled over the next two years. Cornerback Joe Haden leaving early for the NFL and safeties Major Wright and Ahmad Black going to be seniors next year if they stay, which I think they will. What does Meyer do? He goes out and gets five defensive backs to commit this season to A Bobby Callovi Bobby's World bcallovi@alligator org replace them. The offensive line could also be a work in progress the next two years, but Meyer took care of that last year by adding five last year. He also has three receivers and two tight ends committed to replace a receiving corps that is mostly graduating this year. Even though he has done a great job so far, he needs to reassure all of those players that Florida is the place for them despite the uncertainty of the program, which will not be an easy job. And he can't just settle for the players he has already gotten commitments from. There are still some big-time prospects out there that would put this class at the top of all the recruiting sites' rankings. The biggest two are outside linebacker Jordan Hicks and defensive end Ronald Powell. Hicks would go a long way in 2011 when A.J Jones and Brandon Hicks are gone, but Powell could be a recruit that could play right away. Jermaine Cunningham is graduating and Carlos Dunlap is likely to take off for the pros, leaving Justin Trattou as the only proven defensive end. The Gators have fallen in love with using three ends in passing situations and behind Trattou none have stepped up. Powell is a five-star recruit from California, who is the type of player ready to play right away. Despite needing to rest, Meyer will be hard at work again over this next month trying to secure and improve one of the top classes, but all the questions are answered on Feb. 3, making it one of my favorite days. Cooper, Hernandez combine for 292 receiving yards FOOTBALL, from page 1 And just coming into the game, we just were hitting and clicking, so we kept going with it and ended up obviously throwing for a lot of yards." "You hear a lot of guys talk about dynasty around here and taking the sport to a new level, and I think we've done that." David Nelson UF senior wide receiver As was the case all season, senior wide receiver Riley Cooper and junior tight end Aaron Hernandez were the primary beneficiaries of Tebow's passes. Cooper hauled in seven passes for 181 yards in his final game as a Gator, including a 80-yard deep ball down the left sideline, and Hernandez grabbed nine passes for 111 yards and a touchdown. It was the first time two UF players went over the century mark in receiving yards since Andre Caldwell and Percy Harvin did it in the Gators' 49-22 win over Vanderbilt on Nov. 3, 2007. Despite Meyer's health concerns, coaching changes and a possible lack of motivation, the senior class cemented a legacy that won't soon be forgotten by Gators fans. "You hear a lot of guys talk about dynasty around here and taking the sport to a new level, and I think we've done that," said senior wide receiver David Nelson, who caught two passes for 37 yards. "We really didn't care who we were going to play tonight. We didn't care who was going up against us, it could've been the Dallas Cowboys."

TUESDAY, JANUARY 5, 2010 U ALLIGATOR, 23 Spring Sports Season Preview Baseball The Gators have improved each year since coach Kevin O'Sullivan took over the team in 2008. This year, the baseball team will look to improve on last season, which ended in the NCAA Super Regional. With most of the core returning and a freshman class many considered the top in the nation entering, Florida is primed to contend for not only a Southeastern Conference title but also a national championship. Sophomore slugger Preston Tucker will be expected to provide the Gators with pop after his impressive freshman campaign. A group of sophomore pitchers -Nick Maronde, Alex Panteliodis and Anthony DeSclafani -will be counted on to lead the rotation, and the return of Tommy Toledo, who missed last season because of injury, will be back to add depth at pitcher. Gymnastics The No. 4 UF gymnastics team gears up for another season after finishing fourth at the NCAA Championships last year. Last season the team was decimated by injuries and only eight healthy gymnasts were available for the championship meet. This season, the team has added five freshmen and should have everyone backfrom injury, including senior Amanda Castillo. However, the Gators will be without one of the gymnasts they were most counting on. All-American Melanie Sinclair was suspended indefinitely and is no longer on th6 roster because of her arrest on three felony charges. The team travels to Norman, Okla., to launch its season against the Sooners. Florida does have an advantage in finally winning a national championship that has been just out of arms' reach for the last few year as Gainesville is the site for the 2010 NCAA Championships. Lacrosse The Florida women's lacrosse team is set to begin its first NCAA season on Feb. 20 with a home matchup against the Jacksonville Dolphins. The team, led by coach Amanda O'Leary and assistants Jennifer Ulehla and Erica LaGrow, consists of 24 freshmen, two sophomores, one junior and two seniors. Inside Lacrosse magazine ranked the group of 24 freshmen as the No.1 signing class and lists four of UF's players in the magazine's Top 25. The Gators will have the tasks of facing some of the top teams in the country, including five-time defending national champions Northwestern. The newly constructed Florida Lacrosse Facility is located across from the Katie Seashole Pressly Softball Stadium on Hull Road and will be the site for home matches. Softball There's no question what the early season storyline is for the softball team: How will they be able to replace All-American ace Stacey Nelson? Welcome to the Stephanie Brombacher era. The junior, who went 42-0 with a 1.10 ERA in her first two seasons, will take over for Nelson in the circle. Finding a No. 2 to fill in Brombacher's old role will also be crucial. That job might be opt to freshman ,g Ensley Gammel. Returning starters Francesca Enea, Kelsey Bruder, Aja Paculba, Megan Bush and Corrie Brooks will give UF plenty of pop at the top of the lineup, but some new faces will have to step up and become everyday players if the Gators hope to make their third straight Women's College World Series. Track and Field Both the men's and women's track team finished in the top 10 last season, and both won the Southeastern Championship titles. The women's team is deep at both sprint runners and long-distance runners, but its star athlete is one of its throwers. Mariam Kevkhishvili has won the NCAA title for shot put her first three years and will look to finish her collegiate career with another. As for the men's team, it will be led by Calvin Smith. The senior is a 13-time All-American and three-time SEC Champion. The SEC Runner of the Year was part of the NCAA Champion 4x400 team. The men could also get a boost if Jeff Demps can recover from an injury he suffered while playing football in time to contribute to its postseason run. -ALLIGATOR SPORTS STAFF Max Weissler / Alligator Staff Happy Hour 4-9 pm $4 Pitchers Trivia Tuesday Win Beer Manda /3Jight: ctl LnmT Li Qun |Wednesdag X =~n M9U Ltwssrai WilL atrdayi: maB3YLvm OUTJEUU Karake Mondaly $10 all you can drink wells and drafts DJ -JD Ladlies Drink Freel Beat the Clock, FREE BEER a V

The Gators were 3-3 during the winter break. Meyer needs trip to Bourbon St. As expected, the Urban Meyer situation dominated the talk leading up to Florida's Sugar Bowl matchup against Cincinnati. Coaches and players on both sides were constantly hit with questions like: What did you think when you heard he'd retire? Do you think he can change his ways and still be successful? Are you afraid he might die? That last one sounds pretty ridiculous, but then again, we don't really know what's up with Meyer's health. He's keeping the specifics quiet, and that leads some to run wild with speculation. To me, he's a very successful and super-rich 45-year-old who needs to take a vacation, step back and re-evaluate the way he operates to cut down some stress. Mike McCall McCallin' It Like I See It m mccaIlI@a IIi ga to r o rg His daughter, Nicki, said after the Sugar Bowl that her dad just needs a break.

Parsons said he doesn't usually take three-quartercourt shots in practice -unlike some of his teammates -but his heave found the bottom of the net, sending the Gators into a raucous celebration on the floor of the RBC Center as UF prevailed 62-61 against North Carolina State on Sunday. "I feel like someone's about to pinch me right now, and I'm gonna wake up from a dream," Parsons Men's said. "I've never had this feeling in Basketball my life, and I'm just glad I could step up for my team and knock it down."

PETERSBURG -The Gators' 51-24 victory over Cincinnati in the Sugar Bowl on Friday marked the end of an era for the nation's most celebrated senior class and ushered in a period of uncertainty heading into the 2010 season. Seven members of the defense graduated and as many as eight juniors on Florida may opt for an early start at a career in the NFL. But UF's incoming recruiting class gave Gators fans something to look forward to with their performances at the Under Armour All-America Game on Saturday at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg.

Palmdale (Calif.) High cornerback Joshua Shaw, another player committed to helping replace a Florida defensive backfield that could lose three juniors to the NFL Draft, added a pick of his own. "The Florida secondary came up big tonight," Shaw said. "Hopefully we showed the fans that our secondary is going to be one of the best for years to come." The good news kept coming for the Gators, as they added two more commits during the game: Staten Island (N.Y.) Curtis High defensive end Dominique Easley (the game's co-MVP) and Pahokee High receiver Chris Dunkley, ranked as the nation's No. 8 wideout by Rivals.com. "The group of players here, the people that I am going to be with for the next four years of my life, really helped me make my decision," Easley said.

TUESDAY, JANUARY 5, 2010 U ALLIGATOR, 25 Florida ii% Cincinnati M 3 SWAMP STUDS It had to end this way. Tebow wasn't playing in the game he had hoped for, but he turned in the most jaw-dropping performance of his career. Tebow's 533 total yards shattered the BCS record of 467 set by Texas quarterback Vince Young in 2006, a number Tebow had surpassed before the end of the third quarter. He also set a new UF record for total offense Tim Tebow in a game. He started the game 12-for-12, and his halftime statline (20QB, Sr of-23, 320 yards, three touchdowns) was better than any of his full-game -outputs since the 2007 FAU game. 31-of-35 passing, 482 yds, 3 TD; 14 rush, 51 yds, TD Cincinnati's Mardy Gilyard came into the game with most of the hype, but Cooper left the Superdome with the distinction of the game's best wideout. His statline blew up thanks to an 80-yard touchdown catch, but his most impressive work came on a 44-yard grab in the third quarter. On that catch, he reached back over Cincy defensive back Dominique Battle's shoulder to haul in the pass, then wrestled it away after Battle tried to snatch it. Cooper said he still plans to play baseball professionally, but his eye-catching night in New Orleans could cause a change in plans. 7 catches, 181 yds, 1 TD N Riley Cooper WR, Sr. It's pretty rare that a receiver puts up the numbers Hernandez did and finishes a distant second on the team, but it's hard to overlook the performance UF's tight end turned in. Hernandez was his usual self, finding open spaces in the defense, showing sure hands and bullying defenders after the catch, and it was clear that UC didn't have an answer for him. Florida fans will keep their fingers crossed that Hernandez turns down the NFL to come back for his senior year, but if he leaves, at least it's on a high note. 9 catches, 111 yds, TD FINAL STANDINGS T Tebow -21 J.

TURNING POINT The only turning point in this one was when the game turned from an easy win to a rout. The Bearcats got on the board with 3:11 left in the first half to cut the lead to 23-3, but just nine seconds later, Cooper turned his defender around, hauled in a perfect pass from Tebow and streaked down the sideline en route to an 80-yard touchdown that made the score 30-3. The play sucked the last ounce of hope from Cincinnati fans and gave most impartial TV viewers a reason to change the channel at halftime. ~~wo 0 Short of Cash? Donate Plasma! Thousands do.

Max Weissler / Alligator Staff UF rides win streak into SEC play Hil P1, from page 24 "We're very, very fortunate to win. It was one of those shots where there's nothing diagrammed, there's no play, there's nothing like that," Florida coach Billy Donovan said. "It was just a guy who took the ball, and you talk about strange things happening. If the ball bounced anywhere except where it bounced, maybe a different guy shoots it." With the victory, the Gators will enter their Southeastern Conference schedule on a three-game winning streak despite a disastrous start to their break. Florida has gone 3-3 since Dec. 9, losing three straight to Syracuse (85-73 on Dec. 10 in Tampa), Richmond (56-53 on Dec. 19 in Sunrise) and at home against South Alabama (67-66 on Dec. 22). The three-game skid knocked the Gators out of the top 25, where they enjoyed a brief stay at as high as No. 10. Despite struggling with a multitude of injuries and illnesses, UF bounced back from the tough string of losses with a 76-60 win against American and a 79-38 rout of Presbyterian, both in the O'Connell Center. With only sophomore center Kenny Kadji still seriously injured -he has a herniated disc in his lower back -and an emotional win to cap off the break, the Gators will move on to start their SEC schedule this weekend against Vanderbilt. Donovan said his team needs to play defense like it did against NC State in the second half, when UF allowed only 19 points, to find success in the SEC. However, he said the Gators also can't afford to shoot like they did against the Wolfpack. "When you start getting into the conference -I'm not trying to put pressure on our guys, but you've got to make some shots," Donovan said. "It's really, really hard for our team -for any team -when you're shooting 12 percent. There's been a lot of games where we've had these kinds of shooting performances." Class holds steady amid turmoil RECRUIT, from page 24 Talking to the coaching staff, everything was going to be all right." Since UF coach Urban Meyer's initial announcement of his plans to retire, only one recruit, Matt Elam, backed out on his commitment. The remaining members of the recruiting class expressed concern for their coach but stood strong by their decisions. "I know [Meyer] is doing that to get himself healthy," Shaw said. "Forget football, forget everything else. Your health is far more important. I am happy for him to have the guts to go out and do that, and I know that in his heart he will go out and do what's best for him." Shaw also commented on defensive coordinator Charlie Strong's exit from the program to take the head coaching position at Louisville, and he was not worried about losing one of the nation's best defensive coaches. "It's all right," Shaw said. "Coach Strong is probably the greatest defensive coordinator in college football. I wish the best for him, but I also know that being at UF you are always going to get the best. There are going to be hundreds of coaches wanting to get that job, and they will get the best guy."

TUESDAY, JANUARY 5, 2010 U ALLIGATOR, 27 Gators continue holiday success in conference opener By EUGENIO TORRENS Alligator Staff Writer etorrens@alligator org Freshman Jennifer George walked off the court with a smile after sinking two free throws that put her team up seven points with 2:37 left in the game. The Gators went on to defeat Arkansas 59-53 to open Southeastern Conference play Sunday. "I've been going to the line a lot, but I haven't been converting them," said George, who came into the game shooting 61 percent from the free-throw line. "I just told myself I was going to make it.

"Everything is just up another level," George said. "Each possession is critical, every turnover, every basket, everything. And that's the biggest thing I realized from SEC games from non-conference games." The first win of the new decade gave UF (8-6, 1-0 SEC) its longest winning streak of the season at three games. The Gators have gone 5-1 in their last six games since classes ended for winter break. The 75-68 loss to High Point in the confines of the O'Connell Center -the sole loss in that six-game stretch -left a bad taste in the team's mouth for the weeklong Christmas break.

"It's a step in the right direction for us. Everyone feels good, but at the same time it's only going to George get harder from here." Coach Amanda Butler said the team talked about how everything was magnified in conference play, including free-throw shooting. UF was unable to rely on its 3-point shooting (5 of 19) against the Hogs, except for Lonappropriate. After a day or two of a little drinking, a lot of eating and listening to some jazz, he should head up the road to Baton Rouge with a boombox, stand outside Billy Gonzales' bedroom window and blare Peter Gabriel's "In Your Eyes."

While he still has the jet, maybe nika Thompson, who scored nine of her 12 points on 3-pointers. While the 3-point shooting perhaps hasn't met the team's standard, the team has been doing a better job generating a balanced offensive attack. Center Azania Stewart has averaged 12.6 points in Florida's last five games and has shot 71 percent with a pair of career-high 18-point games in an eight-day span. George has also been progressing as a presence on the boards, bringing in 40 rebounds in that 5-1 stretch. Defensive rebounding was a highlight for Butler because of the ability to hold Arkansas to one-shot possessions. "That was what I was most pleased with," Butler said.

28, ALLIGATOR U TUESDAY, JANUARY 5,2010 Gators face uncertainties heading into offseason By KYLE MAISTRI Alligator Staff Writer kma istri@a Iligator org NEW ORLEANS -Florida said goodbye to the winningest class in school history, the greatest player in school history and its defensive coordinator with a 51-24 win against Cincinnati in the Sugar Bowl. With Tim Tebow, Brandon Spikes, Charlie Strong and others on their way out the door, a lot of uncertainty surrounds the future of UF's program. Coach Urban Meyer will take a leave of absence and hand the reins over -temporarily -to offensive coordinator Steve Addazio, whose only head coaching experience came at Cheshire (Conn.) High School. I feel a great obligation and an honFootball or to be able to hold this thing together for coach until he gets back here," Addazio said. "If we can give him this piece of stability, that he knows this program is in good shape and good hands and going well, then that's what we're gonna do. That's what we owe him." Meyer said again after the game he feels he will be back in the fall for the start of the 2010 season to coach a brand new football team. John Brantley will take over for Tebow at quarterback, but that may be the only certain thing about next season. The defense loses starters Spikes, linebacker Ryan Stamper and end next year. senior season, and end Carlos DunJermaine Cunningham, and that's Cornerback Joe Haden has allap is expected to be a first-round if every junior decides to come back ready announced he will forgo his pick if he declares for the NFL Draft. AV 4 Anarew btannlI / migator stan UF offensive coordinator Steve Addazio will take over as interim head coach until Urban Meyer returns from his leave of absence. Addazio's only previous head coaching experience was at a high school. Safeties Ahmad Black and Major Wright have also submitted their papers to the advisory committee. "I'll talk to my coaches and if they think I'm ready, then I'll go," said Dunlap, who recorded two sacks against the Bearcats. All of those departures leave one of the best defenses in the country in a transition period for next season. Spikes said he thinks freshman Jon Bostic will take over his middle linebacker position, depending on who stays and the type of defense UF will run with a new coordinator. "Those younger players, they know what we started, the legacy we have here, and they just want to keep it going," Spikes said. On offense, wide receivers David Nelson and Riley Cooper played their last games as Gators, and a few third-year players -offensive linemen Carl Johnson, Marcus Gilbert and Mike and Maurkice Pouncey, tight end Aaron Hernandez and running back Chris Rainey -still have NFL decisions to make. "You hear a lot of guys around here talk about dynasty and taking the sport to a new level, and I think we've done that," Nelson said. Now, the challenge will be staying on top with a different nucleus of players, some of which have yet to sign with UF. "I'm going to do everything I can to keep this train going in the right direction," Meyer said when asked if he plans to recruit over the next month. "That all will be discussed in the next few days."
