Students learn



about Quran


By CAROLYN TILLO
Alligator Staff Writer

The soft chants of prayers
toward Mecca marked the start
and end of "Quran 101" at the
Reitz Union Grand Ballroom
Monday night.
About 100 people attended
the event, which was spon-
sored by Islam on Campus to
educate people about the Quran
and give them a chance to ask
questions about the holy text
of Islam, said Nora Zaki, vice
president of external affairs for
Islam on Campus.
Three University Police De-
partment officers were present
as a precaution after last week's
uproar about the proposed
burning of Qurans at the Dove
World Outreach Center, but
the speech by assistant profes-
sor Sarra Tlii and the questions
that followed included no men-
tion of Dove or Pastor Terry
Jones.
Tlili, an expert in Arabic
language and literature who


teaches in the department of
languages, literatures and cul-
tures within the College of Lib-
eral Arts and Sciences, filled in
for Sheik Faraz Rabbani, the
original keynote speaker.
Rabbani was held up by
U.S. Customs and unable to
fly down from Canada for the
event, said Khaled Abdelgh-
any, the treasurer of Islam on
Campus.
In her speech, Tlili explained
the history of the Quran and
described the themes and style
of the text, which the angel Ga-
briel revealed to the prophet
Muhammad over a period of 23
years.
Thhlili said the word "Quran"
literally means "recitation."
She also said that the Quran is
meant to be spoken, not read
silently.
Like Judaism and Christian-
ity, Islam emphasizes the unity
of God.
"There is tremendous em-
phasis on God's justice and on

Gator Growl cuts music, adds comic


* KEVIN HART AND AZIZ ANSARI
WILL PERFORM.

By ELIZABETH BEHRMAN
Alligator Staff Writer

Gator Growl will run a little bit differ-
ently this year.
Instead of a musical performance, the
Oct. 15 show will feature two comedians,
as well as a show host.
Members of the audience will still get
their share of Seminole-bashing skits and
performances, and this year they will be
able to vote on the best one.
"We're definitely expecting a good
group of people this year," said David
DeVinney, director of public relations for


Gator Growl.
"We have what we believe is a good
show planned."
This year's headliners will be comedi-
ans Aziz Ansarl and Kevin Hart, and Dan
Levy will host.
DeVinney said the staff wanted to in-
clude two comedians in the show rather
than a musical performance
Gator because it is something every-
Growl one in the audience will enjoy,
no matter what kind of comedy
they like.
"Having a multiple-comedian approach
guarantees the most entertainment for the
majority of our audience," DeVinney said.
The Growl Minute of Fame segment of
the show, where students and alumni sub-
mit videos to be played during the rally,


will be held as a contest this year between
students and alumni.
DeVinney said the groups have until
Oct. 1 to record their skits, which should be
under a minute, and upload them to You-
Tube.
After they have uploaded their videos
for review, they should e-mail the link as
per the instructions on the Gator Growl
website.
"Our general guidelines are just to keep
it in good taste," DeVinney said.
Once all the clips are submitted,
DeVinney said Gator Growl staff members
will vote on the best three and post them
to the website where viewers can vote for
their favorite.

UF grads


popular


with job


recruiters

By JOEY FLECHAS
Alligator Staff Writer

UF graduates are getting high
marks from job recruiters, accord-
ing to a new ranking released by The
Wall Street Journal.
UF ranked ninth among recruit-
ers surveyed for the report released
Sunday.
The newspaper surveyed 842
recruiters from public and private
companies, nonprofit organizations
and federal agencies across the coun-
try for the report.
"UF is a tremendous fishing
ground for employers,"
Wayne Wallace
UF Career Resource Center

UF Career Resource Center Di-
rector Wayne Wallace said the uni-
versity has become a frequently tar-
geted school for large corporations
that only recruit at a select number
of schools.
"UF is a tremendous fishing
ground for employers," he said.
The Wall Street Journal report
cites big student populations and
good practical training as reasons
why major public university grad-
uates are finding success out of
school.
Wallace had similar observations
about UF graduates.
He said the university has a large
number of graduates and high aca-
demic standards, as well as students
who are willing and able to relocate
for jobs.
UF spokesman Steve Orlando
said the university has always held
its graduates in high esteem.

Woman rides 'shotbun' in Weinermobile
ROLLING GREENS, Fla. (AP) - A central Flori-
da woman caught the eye of neighbors as she tooled
around in a most unusual vehicle - the Weinermo-
bile. Barbara Gilbert won a trip to ride "shotbun" in
Oscar Mayer's eccentric car which resembles a giant
hot dog.
The 67-year-old Rolling Greens resident spent Sat-
urday riding in the ketchup and mustard colored seats,
visiting downtown Ocala and Silver Springs.
Dozens gathered to ride with Gilbert and have their
picture taken with the colorful contraption.

ON CAMPUS
Flu shots now free at SHCC
Students looking to prevent
the flu this season can now re-
ceive free flu vaccines available
on campus.
Last fall, students had to pay
$5 for a flu shot, but due to the
high demand for the vaccine, not
all students received the shot.
The Student Health Care Center
ordered about 10,000 flu vaccines
this year, when only about 5,000
were ordered last year.
Kelly Mitchell, registered
nurse at the SHCC, said the flu
shot this year will include H1N1
protection.
"It's the best remedy to keep-
ing healthy throughout the flu
season," Mitchell said. She also
recommends eating right and
getting enough rest to keep
healthy.
While the current flu season is
unpredictable, Mitchell suggests
every student get the flu shot, es-
pecially those who have weaker
immune systems.
"It's free and it takes only a
couple of minutes to be in and
out of my office," she said. "So,
why not get the vaccine?"

Florida SAT scores stable, below national average


* THE STATE AVERAGE IS 1473 ON A
2400-POINT SCALE.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

MIAMI - Florida high school seniors
again scored below the national average
on the SAT college entrance exam, with the
class of 2010 scoring slightly lower than
2009 did.
Test results released Monday show
Florida students scoring an average of 496
in critical reading, 498 in math and 479 in
writing, out of a maximum 800 points in
each subject.
Combined, Florida's score of 1473 was
two points lower than the state scored in
2009 and 37 points below the national com-
bined average of 1509.
The state scored below average in every
category: the national averages were 501 in


reading, 516 in math and 492 in writing.
A record 102,741 of students took the
exam in Florida, about 2,500 more students
than 2009.
Some good news for Florida came from
minority students, who .-i-''-I -J1, scored
better than their counterparts nationally.
Among racial and ethnic groups in Flor-
ida, students of Mexican heritage made the
largest gains in each subject, jumping 10
points in writing and 9 in reading.
Black and Hispanic students overall
achieved higher scores in math and read-
ing than their respective racial and ethnic
groups nationwide.
It was that news that state Education
Commissioner Eric Smith focused on. The
College Board, which administers the test,
said 2010 was Florida's most diverse group
to take the test; 48.5 percent come from
minority groups, up from 47 percent last
year.


"Florida's teachers and school leaders
have answered the call for increased stu-
dent college and career readiness with a re-
sounding voice challenging our students to
reach higher and unleash their true poten-
tial," Smith said in a statement. "Because
of their efforts, more of our children will
graduate from school prepared for the next
stage of their life, more will succeed in their
careers and more will experience the hap-
piness and prosperity that
National only a quality educational
News experience can provide."
As in other years, persis-
tent trends regarding the relationships be-
tween family income and level of parental
education held true, with those students
coming from the poorest families also re-
cording the lowest scores and those from
the wealthiest with the highest - a gap of
more than 100 points in all three subject
areas.


"We need to prepare more of our stu-
dents for college level work," said Alan
Richard, spokesman for the Southern Re-
gional Education Board. "Our economy
now demands it, and if we expect to re-
main competitive globally than this is the
type of work force we're going to need to
have in the future."
Richard said the that while important,
the SAT and other college admission tests
are not an overall indicator of a state's edu-
cational progress.
He said SAT scores have o.,-i.-II ll_
shifted downward over the last few year, a
trend that holds true in much of the South-
east United States.
Nationwide, the average SAT score held
steady - the combined 1509 was the same
score the class of 2009 received. That score
is nine points lower than the average in
2006, when the writing section was added
and the test shifted to a 2400-point scale.

Campus organizations host Involvement Carnival


By ELISE DONINI
Alligator Contributing Writer

Students had the chance to learn a little
bit more about getting involved on campus
Monday afternoon.
About 10 organizations gathered at the
Reitz Union Colonnade Monday for this se-
mester's Involvement Carnival, which was
a part of the Jewish Student Union's Fall
Welcome Week. It was an opportunity for
members of the organizations to speak with


students about what they do and why stu-
dents should get involved.
According to Chelsea Cohen, president
of the JSU, the purpose of the event was to
help students become involved in clubs and
organizations that interest them.
"When you come to a school like UF, it's
easy to get lost in the crowd," Cohen said,
"But by getting involved in a student or-
ganization, you can meet new people with
the same interests and passions as you, as
well as be exposed to social networking and
unique opportunities that you ordinarily


"By getting involved in a student
organization, you can meet new
people with the same interests
and passions as you..."

Jewish Student Union

wouldn't be aware of."
She said JSU tries to appeal to the Student
Body as a whole, not just Jewish students.


"We work to throw away stereotypes,
which is something I personally think is im-
portant, especially on a campus as diverse as
UF," Cohen said.
Mitchell Ortega, a political science major
and senior member of College Democrats,
enjoyed promoting events and involvement
for his organization at the carnival.
"College Democrats take great pride in
being accessible to students to answer their
questions," Ortega said. "There's no better
way to facilitate that than tabling at events
like this one."


About 100 people attended the event

-''- :|1 " Tlili said. "All people
are created equal. In fact, all cre-
ation is created equal, and if you
want to become better, it is some-
thing that you need to earn."
This message of unity was es-
pecially relevant after a weekend
in which residents of Gainesville
gathered together to remember


"While I may not agree
with everything they
believe, it's not my job to
condemn them,"

the victims of Sept. 11 and show
their support for Gainesville's


Muslim community.
Jordan Belser, a senior English
major, said she feels Christians
and Muslims have a hard time
understanding each other, but she
wants that to change.
"While I may not agree with
everything they believe, it's not
my job to condemn them," Belser
said.
"It's my job to love them."


Recruiters: Finance majors impressive


RAN K, from page 1

"We've always believed our students come out
prepared for the workplace and the world in gener-
al," he said.
The ranking makes note of the programs recruit-
ers especially touted. For UF, recruiters gave finance
majors especially high praise.
The acclaim came as no surprise to Michael Ryn-
gaert, chairman of the Department of Finance, In-
surance and Real Estate in the Warrington School of
Business.


"It speaks to the quality of students that we at-
tract," he said.
He said in addition to simply being impressive
candidates for employment, well-prepared graduates
have gone on to establish footholds
U F in major firms like Merrill Lynch,
Academics Wachovia and Raymond James.
"A lot of times, those are the
people we rely on for recruitment," he said.
Wallace agreed.
"Our predecessors, the alumni - they paved the
way," he said.


Japan foreign minister


apologizes to POWs


* HE SAID THOSE VISITING
FROM THE US WERE
TREATED INHUMANELY.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

TOKYO (AP) -Japan's foreign
minister apologized for the suf-
fering of a group of former World
War II prisoners of war visiting
from the United States and said
they were treated inhumanely.
The six POWs, their relatives
and the daughters of two men
who died are the first group of
U.S. POWs to visit Japan with
government sponsorship, though
groups from other countries have
been invited previously.
"I offer my deep, heartfelt apol-
ogy for the inhuman treatment
you suffered," Foreign Minister
Katsuya Okada told the group
Monday.
The POW group's leader,
90-year-old Lester Tenney, who
survived the Bataan Death March
in 1942, said he welcomed the
government's :i:..1. .- but still
seeks recognition from the pri-
vate companies that "used and
abused" prisoners in their mines
and factories, often under brutal
conditions.
"At no time have we gotten
from these private companies just
a letter," Tenney said. "These pri-
vate companies have kept quiet
for 65 years. It is an insult, be-
cause by their keeping quiet they
are hoping we will die off."


Japan surrendered in 1945 after
the atomic bombings of Hiroshi-
ma and Nagasaki. Japanese lead-
ers have apologized for the coun-
try's militarist past many times,
but the government contends that
all reparations issues were settled
by treaties after the war.
Japanese courts have also ruled

LOCAL ELECTIONS

Commission candidate offering to do chores for cash


By ALEXANDER KLAUSNER
Alligator Writer

Picture this: You're sitting in your house,
looking out onto your yard, and you notice
your lawn more closely resembles a jungle.
Or, another example - you're in your
kitchen, dishes stacked high, and you don't
really know where to begin.
You're feeling too lazy to do these house-
hold chores, and you've got some loose cash.
There's someone you can call on, but it's not a
lawn maintenance service, and it's not a maid
- it's a man who's running for city commis-
sioner of Gainesville, Ozzy Angulo.
Most political candidates raise money
with fundraisers and speeches, but Angulo,
a 30-year-old Democratic candidate running
against Susan Bottcher and Rob Zeller, wants
to do things differently.
The aspiring commissioner said he wants


to perform household chores or other services
to people in exchange for political donations.
"It'll help develop a more intimate rap-
port between the community and myself,"
he said. "Here's a guy who wants to be an
elected official, but he's not above cleaning a
toilet or coming to help you with your lawn,"
he said about himself.
Angulo is not just limited to household
work. He is willing to provide other services
in exchange for donations.
Cooking is one of those, he said, citing
his seven years of experience in food service
as one of his qualifications. He also said he
was willing to offer people rides if they need
them, or even give :-, 11 ...... dancing lessons.
He said a reason he wants to do this is to
get to know people, but he also wants people
to get to know him.
"Thats been one of my greatest challeng-
es," Angulo said. "I can't tell you how many


times people have hung up the phone on me
or shut their doors on me simply because
they don't know me."
He is yet to be taken up on his offer, which
he has posted on Craigslist, but he's still
ready and willing to provide these services
for people.
"All I really want is the opportunity for
-. the people of Gainesville to
get to know what I'm about
and to know who I am and
see that I'm the real deal,"
he said.
Using Craigslist isn't the
only quirky thing about
ngulo Angulo's campaign strat-
egy.
He has also blended his political aspira-
tions with aspirations in a different depart-
ment - entertainment.
He recently .:. .11 -,1:.., ir.- -j with a local hip-


hop group, Swaghouse Ent., on shooting a
music video that surrounded several of the
city's issues, including scenes of a Students
for a Democratic Society protest against the
shooting of Kofi Adu-Brempong.
Angulo is still raising money the regular
way. He makes the phone calls and he holds
the fundraisers normally associated with po-
litical campaigns.
The only difference is he holds his fund-
raisers at places like Mars Pub and Laser
Tag.
Despite his unconventional approach, An-
gulo is, in essence, a solution-oriented candi-
date.
"He's very enthusiastic about tackling
problems," said Larry Bruce, the owner of
The Laboratory, which Angulo calls his cam-
paign headquarters. "He doesn't mind going
into the issues himself. I think that's one of
his stronger points."


Imam says NYC mosque site is not 'hallowed ground'


* HE USED A NEARBY STRIP CLUB AS AN EXAMPLE.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK - It is two blocks from ground zero, but the
site of a proposed mosque and Islamic center shouldn't be seen
as "hallowed ground" in a neighborhood that also contains a
strip club and a betting parlor, the cleric leading the effort said
Monday.
Making an ardent case for the compatibility of Islam and
American values, Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf reiterated that he is
searching for a solution to the furor the project has created. But
he left unanswered exactly what he had in mind.
If anything, Rauf only deepened the questions around the
project's future, telling an audience at the Council on Foreign
Relations think tank that he was "exploring all options" - but
declining to specify them - while also arguing that a high-
profile site is necessary to get across his message of moderate
Islam.
While opponents of the project see it as insulting the memo-


ries of the thousands killed by Muslim extremists in the 2001
terrorist attacks, Rauf said he doesn't see the spot as sacred me-
morial space.
"It's absolutely disingenuous, as many have said, that that
block is hallowed ground," Rauf said, noting the nearby exotic
dance and betting businesses. "So lets clarify that mispercep-
tion."
Some Sept. 11 victims' families and others view the pro-
posed mosque site - in a building damaged
National by debris from the attacks - as very much part
News of the terrain of death and sorrow surrounding
the trade center.
"I just think he's being very insensitive to say it's not hal-
lowed ground because of who's occupying the buildings," said
Jim Riches, a former New York City deputy fire chief whose
son, Jimmy, was killed at the trade center. "The strip club didn't
murder my son."
The project has become a flashpoint for worldwide debate
about Islam's place in America nine years after the Sept. 11 at-
tacks. The controversy has colored the fall campaign season
and cast a shadow on this past weekend's commemoration of


the attacks, with supporters and opponents of the mosque proj-
ect - J..i.h'o ii._ H - nearby.
Rauf said a project meant to foster understanding has be-
come unduly mired in conflict and what he described as
misconceptions of a fundamental clash between Islamic and
American values. The Kuwait-born Rauf said his own faith
had been shaped by the sense of choosing one's identity that
American society provided, compared with the Muslim milieu
from which he emigrated in 1965.
"I'm a devout Muslim ... and I'm also a proud American
citizen," said Rauf, noting that he was naturalized in 1979 and
has a niece serving in the U.S. Army. "I vote in elections. I pay
taxes. I pledge allegiance to the flag. And I'm a Giants fan."
He said the Islamic center's organizers were surprised and
saddened by the uproar and might not have pursued it had
they known what was coming. But he declined to detail any
strategy for quieting the clamor - or say whether that might
include moving the project.
"V._ :,._ .. 1:1.. 1i'o :i11 options as we speak right now, and we
are working through what will be a solution, God willing, that
will resolve this crisis," Rauf said. "Everything is on the table."


STUDENT LIFE

Program brings fresh


produce to students


By MARISSA PRIETO
Alligator Contributing Writer

The UF Office of Sustainabil-
ity has coordinated with four lo-
cal farms to bring a Community
Supported Agriculture Program
to campus beginning October.
The program will allow stu-
dents to eat fresh fruits and veg-
etables, as well as support local
farmers and the economy, said
Anna Prizzia, director of the Of-
fice of Sustainability.
Students would pay up front
to one of the four local farms par-
ticipating in the program, and
they will receive a basket of fruit,
vegetables, herbs and flowers
once a week.
"This is a nice stepping stone
to having a farmers market on
campus," Prizzia said.
The Family Garden Organic
Farm, Swallowtail Farm, Kuma-
ne's Organic Garden and Gra-
ham Farms will be participating
in the program this year.
"College kids are some of the
people that get the worst nutri-
tion because they don't have a lot


of time to cook and prepare food,
and even the food that's avail-
able on campus obviously isn't
the greatest for them," said Noah
Shitama, co-owner of Swallow-
tail Farm.
"This is a nice stepping
stone to having a farm-
ers market on campus."
Anna Prizzia
Director, Office of Sustainability

The Family Garden Organic
Farm will begin delivering Oct.
18, and the other farms will be
starting in November. The pro-
gram will last through June.
A full-share bundle, which is
eight to 10 items of produce each
week, runs from $500 to $550. A
half-share bundle, which is four
to six items per week, runs from
$250 to $275. Students would pay
one time, up-front. The produce
provided in the baskets will de-
pend on what's in season.

Do Ask, Do Tell

Judge's ruling right for

America's armed forces
The military might soon see an overwhelming num-
ber of dirty little secrets come out.
Late last week, while Gainesville was worrying
about its own "Fahrenheit 451" episode, a California fed-
eral judge ruled (finally) that the United States military's
"Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy was unconstitutional.
Saying it violated gay members of the military's First
Amendment and due process rights, U.S. District Judge
Virginia Phillips ignited the fire that gay Americans and
allies alike have sought since Bill Clinton's administration
placed a gag order on the gays with guns.
And at a time when gay members of our military who
are just as well trained in services necessary to serve their
country and who can speak languages just as well as their
heterosexual counterparts are being fired for coming out
publicly in an open act of defiance, we're glad change has
come in the form of judicial action.
And we're disappointed it still hasn't come in legisla-
tive form.
A repeal of the controversial, and now apparently un-
constitutional, 17-year-old law has yet to come in the U.S.
Senate :..II.. ii'i Sen. John McCain's warning of a fili-
buster. We're hopeful the new ruling will jump-start the
Senate's actions to end the policy that President Barack
Obama promised he would put an end to during his ad-
ministration.
We're hopeful the appeal process will not result in a
reversal of Phillips' ruling, so the military can stop bicker-
ing about this discriminatory policy and get back to what
it does best: spending trillions of our dollars killing people
across the globe.


Carrots crusades


Revolutions have to
start somewhere.
And some crafty
farmers want this revolu-
tion to start where Naked
Chef Jamie Oliver's died: in
the grocery store.
A fierce coalition of near-
ly 50 carrot farmers across
the country has amassed an
army to get fat kids to eat
a la Bugs Bunny. Launch-
ing a $25 million campaign,
the carrot coalition hopes to
help fight America's obesity
epidemic with an ingenious
effort - making carrots
look like junk food.
The very notion of this
campaign might explain
why, according to the
:il-1 h..I .....i obesity organi-
zation Coalition of Angry
Kids, one in three Ameri-
can children is overweight
or obese.
When we're forced to
market baby carrots -
which some members of
the Editorial Board sen-


ously eat like candy - like
Cheetos and potato chips,
therein lies the very prob-
lem with our sedentary
schoolchildren.
But then again, the
critical crusade to create
a healthier America has
clearly become an issue of
utmost importance in our
nation of fatties, as first
lady Michelle Obama has
made it her personal policy
of choice with those gar-
dening guns of steel.
And if it takes packaging
carrots in Doritos-like bags
and issuing Internet video
games in which carrots
garner more stardom than
Lara Croft's upper half to
get our country's children
to eat vegetables instead
of Cheetos, carrots instead
of crullers, then let's do it,
America.
Most importantly, we're
glad we'll see fewer Ameri-
cans with orange-stained
Cheetos fingers.

America could benefit from lying robots


I was emboldened by news last week that robotics fi-
nally made the technological leap forward necessary
to create the one thing that can conceivably save our
country from collapsing under the weight of our own
self-importance - lying robot politicians.
From this moment forward, America can fashion its
future with hypocritical androids instead of relying on
weak humans with their annoying gray areas and ten-
dency toward consensus.
Scientists at the University of California, Berkeley
have introduced an "electronic skin" that senses touch
using confusing things like nanoparticles and complex
polymers. The details were published in a scientific
journal last week, but the vital point to take away from
this invention is the fact this e-skin can be sewn onto an
android for hours of non-lethal handshakes and photo
ops.
As if heralded by angels, an experiment at Georgia
Tech completed the necessary ingredients for artificial
statesmanship with the inception of the first lying ro-
bot. This robot liar, according to an article in the London
Daily Mail, could behave deceptively by laying a false
trail about its movements. It can also tailor its trickery
of other robots based on how much knowledge it has of
the robot it attempts to deceive.
From this description, it sounds like our robot liar is
already campaigning for the fall elections.
Think of all the money our country would save if all
we needed to do was switch off our politicians at night
and plug them into a standard wall socket. As it stands,
it costs more than $5 million a year to feed Nancy Pelo-
si (she can rj:.- . r-..11, eat her body weight in arugula
within seven minutes of it being placed in her cage) and


keep John Boehner slathered in
organic Thousand Island dressing
nightly to preserve his luminescent
tan.
Entourages of aides could be
lopped from the federal payroll in
Tommy Maple an instant if we stood strong and
letters@allgator.org elected only lying robots instead of
actual humans to higher office.
Reprogramming based on the latest polls would be
as easy as the push of a button, and the teleprompter
could be eliminated entirely.
The advent of bureaucratic androids even bodes well
for upstart political movements like our Tea Party Pa-
triots.
The Tea Party has thus far struggled with an identity
crisis, mostly based on the fact it's a nebulous concoc-
tion of nonsensical libertarians and limp Pentecostals.
Tea Partiers are having a heck of a time finding a leg-
islative agenda that fits their varied needs, and the clos-
est they have come to a political plan is an idea to pack
the Supreme Court with the righteous southern rock-
ers .38 Special and the remaining members of Lynyrd
Skynyrd.
With the ability to build precisely the right lying ro-
bot to suit their requirements, Tea Party Patriots could
rally behind a candidate who stands for every ideal they
hold dear and represents exactly who they want to pilot
our country into an uncertain and murky future: Rambo
Jesus, wearing a tuxedo T-shirt and a camo hat from
Bass Pro Shops.

Letter to the Editor
Letter diminished IRHA reputation
IRHA has come a long way these past
few years. One would think it would
be in the IRHA body's nature to work
together to resolve residence life issues
and build community.
This is a representative democracy
after all. Could there not have been an-
other way to resolve this issue other than
for this maverick to publicly harangue
his allegedly beloved organization?
Could he have tried to work with
other IRHA members to professionally
rectify this situation? Many voted for
him, including me. There was no reason
to take it this far. I know his letter will
devastate the reputation of IRHA imme-
diately, likely for many years to come. I
am immensely saddened that all of the
hours IRHA members spend working


on programs strictly for the residents
have now been spoiled by the published
attitude that we are alleged thieves.
IRHA is filled with individuals who
care deeply about on-campus residents.
Thanks to this selfish and unimagina-
tive letter defaming IRHA, hundreds of
people must struggle even more to fulfill
a commitment they believe in and work
for every single day.
IRHA does many great things. Almost
all of it goes unnoticed. It seems only in
the rare times like these do you hear peo-
ple ask, "Did you hear about IRHA?"
If this writer truly cared about his res-
idents and his organization, he would be
working on that instead of going behind
everyone's back to diminish his cause.

Guest column

IRHA a fiscally responsible,


inclusive organization


want to clear up misconceptions that
were represented about the Inter-
Residence Hall Association in Mon-
day's Alligator. IRHA serves as the ma-
jor programming arm of UF's residence
halls as well as the students' voice in
the residence halls. Furthermore, IRHA
prides itself on its ability to build great
leaders out of its ranks, many of whom
go on to achieve great things in the uni-
versity and the world.
IRHA alumni include Cicerones,
Campus Diplomats, Student Body pres-
idents, doctors, lawyers, teachers and
anything in between. IRHA has been
able to sustain this reputation through
its ability to provide new student lead-
ers with the opportunities and resourc-
es they need to succeed in life.
The letter in question mentions
IRHA's supposed "unethical" spend-
ing of money. I can't help but refute
this. This organization's spending has
rarely come under scrutiny because of
our ability to govern our resources in a
fiscally responsible way. IRHA's bud-
gets are governed by no fewer than five
documents, and our general body of
more than 60 members must pass every
amount of money we spend. Twice. The
two allocations in question were both
evaluated according to these guide-
lines.
Furthermore, there seems to be some
confusion as to IRHA spending resi-
dents' money irresponsibly. Both times
mentioned in the article came from a
special fund IRHA has that is not fund-
ed solely by residents, or even students
at all, for that matter. IRHA takes dona-
tions from organizations and business-
es we have worked with for years and
keep it in a special account with Student
Government as outlined by its statutes.
This fund is used for many purposes,
including helping endow scholarships,
donations to charity after catastrophic
events such as the earthquake in China,


Sean Johnson unforeseen ex-
Speaking Out penses and, yes,
our IRHA camp-
ing trip.
This fund is not used liberally and is
held to the same strict standards of vet-
ting to which the rest of our money is
held. Regardless, it must be said abso-
lutely none of this money is funded in
part or at all by our residents' rent.
This account was responsible for the
funding of 30 percent of our camping
trip with the other 70 percent coming
directly from the members going on
said trip. We had the option of paying
for all of the trip or having our mem-
bers pay more, but the IRHA Executive
Board decided neither were good op-
tions. We chose not to cover all of the
trip because we weren't sure our funds
would be able to sustain the costs. In
addition to this, we did our best to be
as inclusive as possible for the camping
trip by not asking for more money, as
many of our members mentioned they
would not be able to afford to go should
the price be raised.
IRHA prides itself in its ability to
bring together all different kinds of
people with varying opinions, which is
why we hold ourselves to such a high
standard when spending funds.
We make sure all resident's voices
are heard, should they choose to exer-
cise that right, and then let democracy
prevail by each area's elected represen-
tative.
People enjoy coming to our meetings
because IRHA provides a great atmo-
sphere that isn't too serious, but where
things are still done properly and suit-
ably debated when necessary with all
opinions welcomed.
If you would like to join in on the
process, stop by our meeting Monday at
6:15 pm in the Reitz Union Room 282.
We hope to see you there!
Sean Johnson is the IRHA president.

he admired the art gallery. No one
noticed the man with the rolled up

Even though the burning was
off, he didn't feel like the town was
out of the woods yet.
Nothing was certain with Jones,

Would he ask for assistance from

If necessary, he would ask for as-

Was he going to say a few words
tonight?

Well, I will if I have to, yes.

Humeraa Qamar, head of the
Gainesville Interfaith Forum, called
the room to attention from the po-

The Gainesville Muslim com-
munity was preparing for a peace
gathering on the plaza where the
homeless hang out. Protesters were
preparing to swarm Jones' church
in the morning, outnumbering his
congregation by 10 to one.
And Maria Kuhn-Brotton was
testing her daughter from a gay
bar:
"Omgeles I am having shots with
the mayor of gville at ucill How
proud r u of momol!"
The balance of power was back
to normal in the mayor's town.
Tomorrow, he had another
speech to give. But tonight, as the
most stressful week he's faced so far
drew to a close, he celebrated in a
place he felt at home.

UF's offensive identity looks to be different this year


By ANTHONYCHIANG
Alligator Staff Writer
achiang@alligatororg


Harrison Diamond/Alligator Staff
The Gators ran the ball 26 times in the second half of Saturday's game for 209 yards. 75 percent
of the team's rushing attempts have come from the running backs.


After four seasons of passing and
quarterback runs, the Gators relied
on their running backs in the sec-
ond half of Saturday's game and it
worked.
With No. 10 Florida struggling of-
fensively for a second straight week,
offensive coordinator Steve Addazio
made an adjustment at halftime and
decided to use his stable of running
backs.
Despite just 11 rushing attempts in
the first two quarters, the Gators ran
the ball 26 times in the second half for
209 yards to blow past the Bulls with
31 second-half points and move one
step closer to finding their offensive
identity.
"I believe that's who we are going
to be," coach Urban Meyer said. "Is
that the perfect setup? Maybe it is, I
don't know."
Last season, UF turned to dual-
threat quarterback Tim Tebow when
it needed to establish a run game as
he received about 40 percent of the
team's rushing attempts. But the play
calling has changed this year with
John Brantley, who has just five car-
ries.
Running backs Jeff Demps (19 car-
ries), Emmanuel Moody (19), Mike


Gillislee (10) and Mack Brown (3)
have combined to account for 75 per-
cent of the team's rushing attempts
this season.
"You look in the trust we have in
our running backs compared to 2005
- just the growth in that position,"
Meyer said. "It's night and day."
Pouncey makes adjustment:
Thanks to an unlikely source of ad-
vice, Mike Pouncey improved his
snapping against USF.
"I moved my hand up on the ball
and I was doing bet-
ter at it but I told
my coach that I still
wasn't feeling com-
fortable," Pouncey
said.
A Florida equip-
ment manager
knew the answer to
his problems.
He told the senior center to stag-
ger his right foot back in order to be
in a stance similar to the one he used
last season at guard.
"At first, I said I would try it out
because everybody had an opinion
and it just worked for me - I was
comfortable in my stance," Pouncey
said.
Other than one botched center-
quarterback exchange on the first

The anatomy of a downfall:

H ave you ever watched interviews
with Muhammad Al in the days
before his last fight?
He was still All. Still brash. Still driven.
But all the characteristics that made him
the greatest of all time had eroded.
His face looked full, his eyes ..II.. He
moved gingerly. His words were slow and
measured.
Few things in sports are more depress-
ing than the end of All's career, even watch-
ing it in retrospect. You surely did not need
30 years of hindsight to know he was going
to lose to Trevor Berbick.
Tennessee -. .. -rl: :I is in that same des-

As one Tennessee writer put it, the
changes in Knoxville did not appear in big,
bold letters. Really, the collapse could hap-

About eight years ago the Gators were
in worse shape than the Volunteers. So
how exactly did Tennessee implode?

Mather returns to action


* SHE WON TWO OF THREE
MATCHES LAST WEEKEND.

By STEPHEN SHEEHAN
Alligator Writer

With only nine players on the roster,
none of whom are seniors, UF women's
tennis coach Roland Thornqvist's team
is young. But it's certainly not devoid
of leadership.
Thornqvist is counting on junior Jo-
anna Mather to step up following the
departures of Marrit Boonstra and An-
astasia Revzina, who exhausted their
eligibility last year. She put on a terrific
performance at the Southeastern Con-
ference Coaches Fall Classic in Auburn,


Mather defeated No. 20 Krsti Boxx
of Ole Miss (4-6, 6-4, 6-4) on Saturday
before beating Tennessee's Rosalia
Alda (6-3, 6-4) on Sunday, finishing the
tournament with a 2-1 record.
"It's not very hard being a lead-
er because everyone is pretty
determined to get better."
Joanna Mather
UF tennis player

Mather was excited to participate in
the tournament after she couldn't play
in Intercollegiate Tennis Association
Southeast Regional the past two years

* Running back Jeff Demps was named the SEC Special Teams
Player of the Week on Monday after accumulating a career-high
95 yards on kickoff returns against USF. Also, center Mike Pouncey
was awarded the SEC Offensive Line Player of the Week. Through
two games, three UF players have earned conference honors.


* Striker McKenzie Barney earned the SEC Of-
fensive Soccer Player of the Week award after
scoring an overtime goal to beat FSU on Friday.
The goal came 15 seconds into overtime and
allowed the Gators to remain undefeated.


"I was going through the drive-thru
at McDonald's. As I was leaving the
guy told me, 'Hey, don't mess up the
snaps anymore.' I said, 'Don't mess
up my sandwich anymore.'"
Mike Pouncey
UF center

Rainey expected to return from concussion for trip to Tennessee


FOOTBALL, from page 14

drive against the Bulls, the snaps were not a
problem.
Injuries: The Gators hope to be back at full
strength when they start conference play Satur-
day.
Outside linebacker Brandon Hicks said his
wrist was "doing good" and that he hopes to get
his cast removed in a visit to the doctor Mon-
day.
Also, wide receiver Chris Rainey missed the
second half against USF with a concussion. Mey-
er said he expects him to play this week.
On the offensive line, James Wilson left Sat-
urday's game with a swollen knee. However, he
should be available to practice this

Finally, cornerback Jeremy
Brown will play against the Vols
Football after missing part of Saturday's
game with a strained hamstring.
Hill's status unknown: Will Hill has missed
the first two games of the season and his status
for Saturday's game against Tennessee is up in
the air, too.
The safety has not seen the field this year be-

The shovel pass has been a staple of the Gatois' offense for the past two seasons, but the
play has been ineffective so far this season. In four attempts, quarterback John Brantley's
shovel passes have gained a combined seven yards. But coach Urban Meyer insists the team
will continue to run it. and run it effectively. Florida's shovel pass is often misunderstood. In
reality, the shovel is just one element in a triple option. The quarterback can pitch it to the
tight end ("the shovel"), run with it himself or pitch it to a running back on the edge. Meyer
said Brantley needs to run outside the pocket faster and read the defense better. Part of
the problem so far. Meyer said. has been the team's inexperience. "The quarterback doing
it is new, the people catching it [arel new and. up until now. a lot of linemen were shuffled
around." he said. So alligatorSports' Tyler Jett took a look at exactly what went wrong last
week. and what the play looks like when correctly executed.

"I was excited to be able to
go over there and play and get
some results," Mather said.
Playing against some of
the top teams in the SEC was
no easy feat and players were
physically drained by the last
day of competition, Thorn-
qvist said. But the Gators
showed the toughness and
determination necessary to
be one of the top team's in the
country this year.
"I really like this team," he
said. "This is the third year
in a row that we have great,
great chemistry in the locker
room."
While young players often
need to be pushed, Mather
doesn't believe that will be
necessary. She said her team-
mates are motivated to get
in shape and improve their
games.
"It's not very hard being
a leader because everyone is
pretty determined to get bet-
ter," Mather said. "I just want
to be an example to them
about the things to do on the
court."
With two top-10 sopho-
mores in Lauren Embree and

able Mather, the Gators have
the right blend of talent and
leadership this fall.

But Tennessee blew a 10-point lead to LSU in the SEC
Championship, reducing them to a Citrus Bowl ap-
pearance.
A second national title would have put Rocky Top
at the center of the college - ....rl: :I universe the same
way it did in The Swamp after 2008. The Volunteers
remained a premier team, but they could have been
the premier team.
Losing your hunger
Phillip Fulmer became a full-time coach at Tennes-
see in 1980, just before All laced up his gloves for the
last time. And just like the former champ, Fulmer was
suspected of losing his edge in the 2000s.
Tennessee still recruited well, but the excitement
generated by those signing ultimately just left fans
even more disappointed.
Three years after signing the No. 2 class in the na-
tion, Tennessee received a No. 3 preseason ranking in
2005. They ended the year 5-6. The Vols were a dark-
horse contender in 2008. Those dreams were dead by
week three, when they fell to the Gators 30-6.
Losing your credibility
Justifiably, Fulmer was fired in 2008. His replace-
ment, who needs no introduction, entered Tennes-
see riding a then-culturally relevant platform of
"change."
He brought a new swagger, landed some premier
recruits and kept his fists clinched, ready to fight the
baddest men in the conference like the newest pris-
oner. He wasn't successful in his first season, but
he was new and fans were patient. They could take
roadblocks. What they couldn't take was the abrupt
departure in January.
And so here lies Tennessee. Their athletic director
is under fire after watching a national championship
contender become an afterthought incapable of bring-
ing former assistant coaches back from Duke.
What's worse for Tennessee? A 48-13 loss at home

ly what everyone inside Neyland Stadium expected.

Gators struggle on front nine, finish day in sixth


By MATT WATTS
Alligator Writer


It was a tale of two nines.
The UF women's golf team - led
by sophomore Mia Piccio's second
consecutive day with four birdies -
shot three under par on the back nine
at Yeaman's Hall Golf Club on Mon-
day.
Unfortunately for the No. 19 Gators,
they were nine over on the front to fin-
ish the second round of the Cougar
Classic in sixth place with a team score
of 10 over par.
Piccio birdied three of her last four
holes to post an even-par round of 72
and remain two under for the tourna-
ment. Also, junior Evan Jensen birdied
two of her last four to post back-to-
back rounds of 73.
"I'm very proud of the way they
finished," coach Jan Dowling said.
"That's going to take momentum into
tomorrow for them and for the rest of
the team."
Piccio and Jensen could have gone
even lower.
Both golfers had their rounds tar-
nished by a double bogey. Piccio's
came on the par-three sixth, a hole that
cost the Gators five strokes Monday.
"It's a tough hole, you have to kind
of hit it in the exact spot," Dowling
said.


Sophomore Isabelle Lendl left her
initial bunker shot in the sand on the
way to a double bogey.
"It kind of killed the momentum
midway through the round," she said.
"It's a very playable golf course, so to
make double really sets you back in
regards to the rest of the held."
Senior Jessica Yadloczky contin-
ued her consistent play, sandwiching
two birdies between four bogeys for a
two-over round of 74, one better than
Sunday's 75.
A shaky shot right out of the gate
led to a bogey on the
First hole for junior An-
drea Watts. After a dou-
ble bogey on the fourth,
Golf Watts was quickly at
three over par. But she
remained steady and
parred every remaining hole for a 75.
"She had a lot of birdie putts that
just didn't fall," Dowling said. "I think
that was the theme of the day for our
team. We're hoping that it happens to-
morrow."
Asked about her team's chances of
contending for the tournament title,
coach Dowling was optimistic.
"There's birdies out there for sure,"
she said. "With this team, they all have
the potential to be winning tourna-
ments individually. If they all get hot
at the same time, you never know."


Steven H. Keys/ Alligator Staff
Junior Evan Jensen picked up a birdie in two of her last four holes Monday to finish the day at one
over par. A double bogey on the ninth hole hurt her score.

McDaniels: Tebow to see limited playing time for now


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. - Fans wishing to see more of Tim
Tebow might get more of the same instead.
Broncos coach Josh McDaniels said Monday that he's not
planning to use his raw rookie quarterback much differently
than he did in his NFL debut Sunday, when the former Florida
star was on the field for just three snaps in Denver's 24-17 loss.
The college: -. ..rl: I icon, who grew up in Jacksonville, en-
tered on the third play and gained a yard on a quarterback
keeper on 1st-and-10, something he'd do again in the second


quarter after lining up once at wide receiver.
Even when Tebow did go in, starting quarterback Kyle Or-
ton stayed on the field and called the plays that he received in
his headset, and McDaniels said he'd like to keep it that way.
"I don't think I have any desire to do that with Kyle coming
off the field, coming on the field, coming off," McDaniels said.
"I don't think that's really something that we're looking to do
much of. Like I said yesterday after the game, I think our quar-
terback played pretty well. I think he will play well. (I have)
great confidence in his ability to execute what we're doing.
And so we'd have to have something that would force us to


make a decision like that and feel really good about it."
Orton was masterful Sunday until the fourth quarter, when
he threw a fourth-down pass that Brandon Lloyd couldn't
quite come down with in the end zone and then got picked off
on his final drive in the closing seconds.
McDaniels said he would have used Tebow more had his
carries been more productive.
"It was just a portion of the game plan that we wanted to go
ahead and put in there. If it gave us some benefits, great. We
threw a pass or two out of it, completed them. A couple of runs,
didn't do much with those," McDaniels said.

TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 14, 2010 ALLIGATOR, 3 THE STATE AVERAGE IS 1473 ON A 2400-POINT SCALE.THE ASSOCIATED PRESSMIAMI — Florida high school seniors again scored below the national average on the SAT college entrance exam, with the class of 2010 scoring slightly lower than 2009 did. Test results released Monday show Florida students scoring an average of 496 in critical reading, 498 in math and 479 in writing, out of a maximum 800 points in each subject. Combined, Florida’s score of 1473 was two points lower than the state scored in 2009 and 37 points below the national combined average of 1509. The state scored below average in every category: the national averages were 501 in reading, 516 in math and 492 in writing. A record 102,741 of students took the exam in Florida, about 2,500 more students than 2009. Some good news for Florida came from minority students, who generally scored better than their counterparts nationally. Among racial and ethnic groups in Flor ida, students of Mexican heritage made the largest gains in each subject, jumping 10 points in writing and 9 in reading. Black and Hispanic students overall achieved higher scores in math and reading than their respective racial and ethnic groups nationwide. It was that news that state Education Commissioner Eric Smith focused on. The College Board, which administers the test, said 2010 was Florida’s most diverse group to take the test; 48.5 percent come from minority groups, up from 47 percent last year. “Florida’s teachers and school leaders have answered the call for increased student college and career readiness with a resounding voice challenging our students to reach higher and unleash their true potential,” Smith said in a statement. “Because of their efforts, more of our children will graduate from school prepared for the next stage of their life, more will succeed in their careers and more will experience the happiness and prosperity that only a quality educational experience can provide.” As in other years, persistent trends regarding the relationships between family income and level of parental education held true, with those students coming from the poorest families also recording the lowest scores and those from the wealthiest with the highest — a gap of more than 100 points in all three subject areas. “We need to prepare more of our students for college level work,” said Alan Richard, spokesman for the Southern Regional Education Board. “Our economy now demands it, and if we expect to remain competitive globally than this is the type of work force we’re going to need to have in the future.” Richard said the that while important, the SAT and other college admission tests are not an overall indicator of a state’s educational progress. He said SAT scores have generally shifted downward over the last few year, a trend that holds true in much of the Southeast United States. Nationwide, the average SAT score held steady — the combined 1509 was the same score the class of 2009 received. That score is nine points lower than the average in 2006, when the writing section was added and the test shifted to a 2400-point scale.Florida SAT scores stable, below national average Ne ws National

ON CAMPUSBy ELISE DONINIAlligator Contributing Writer Students had the chance to learn a little bit more about getting involved on campus Monday afternoon. About 10 organizations gathered at the Reitz Union Colonnade Monday for this semester’s Involvement Carnival, which was a part of the Jewish Student Union’s Fall Welcome Week. It was an opportunity for members of the organizations to speak with students about what they do and why students should get involved. According to Chelsea Cohen, president of the JSU, the purpose of the event was to help students become involved in clubs and organizations that interest them. “When you come to a school like UF, it’s easy to get lost in the crowd,” Cohen said, “But by getting involved in a student or ganization, you can meet new people with the same interests and passions as you, as well as be exposed to social networking and unique opportunities that you ordinarily wouldn’t be aware of.” She said JSU tries to appeal to the Student Body as a whole, not just Jewish students. “We work to throw away stereotypes, which is something I personally think is important, especially on a campus as diverse as UF,” Cohen said. Mitchell Ortega, a political science major and senior member of College Democrats, enjoyed promoting events and involvement for his organization at the carnival. “College Democrats take great pride in being accessible to students to answer their questions,” Ortega said. “There’s no better way to facilitate that than tabling at events like this one.”Campus organizations host Involvement Carnival HE SAID THOSE VISITING FROM THE US WERE TREATED INHUMANELY.THE ASSOCIATED PRESSTOKYO (AP) — Japan’s foreign minister apologized for the suffering of a group of former World War II prisoners of war visiting from the United States and said they were treated inhumanely. The six POWs, their relatives and the daughters of two men U.S. POWs to visit Japan with government sponsorship, though groups from other countries have been invited previously. “I offer my deep, heartfelt apology for the inhuman treatment you suffered,” Foreign Minister Katsuya Okada told the group Monday. The POW group’s leader, 90-year-old Lester Tenney, who survived the Bataan Death March in 1942, said he welcomed the government’s apology but still seeks recognition from the private companies that “used and abused” prisoners in their mines and factories, often under brutal conditions. “At no time have we gotten from these private companies just a letter,” Tenney said. “These private companies have kept quiet for 65 years. It is an insult, because by their keeping quiet they are hoping we will die off.” Japan surrendered in 1945 after the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Japanese leaders have apologized for the country’s militarist past many times, but the government contends that all reparations issues were settled by treaties after the war. Japanese courts have also ruled that reparations issues must be dealt with on a country-to-country basis, but cases challenging that are pending in several courts. After a short time in Tokyo, each POW will travel to a city of his choice. Some will visit the factories, docks or mines where they worked. Tenney was involved for decades in trying to arrange the visit and has lobbied for redress from the companies that used POWs after their capture. The companies have had no comment on the visit. Tenney was taken prisoner in 1942 by the Japanese military and forced along with 78,000 prisoners of war — 12,000 Americans and 66,000 Filipinos — to walk from the Bataan peninsula on the Philippine island of Luzon to a prison camp. As many as 11,000 died during what became known as the Bataan Death March. He was then brought to Japan and forced to work for Mitsui Mining Co. — now Nippon Coke and Engineering Co.Japan foreign minister apologizes to POWs He said members of the audience will be able to text in their votes during the show. The winners of the contest will get a trophy during the show, which they will get to keep until they pass it on to next year’s competition winners. “We wanted to bring back more involvement and give both the alumni and students something to do,” DeVinney said.

In fact, all creation is created equal, and if you want to become better, it is something that you need to earn.” This message of unity was especially relevant after a weekend in which residents of Gainesville gathered together to remember the victims of Sept. 11 and show their support for Gainesville’s Muslim community. Jordan Belser, a senior English major, said she feels Christians and Muslims have a hard time understanding each other, but she wants that to change. “While I may not agree with everything they believe, it’s not my job to condemn them,” Belser said. “It’s my job to love them.” “We’ve always believed our students come out prepared for the workplace and the world in gener al,” he said. The ranking makes note of the programs recruitmajors especially high praise. The acclaim came as no surprise to Michael Ryngaert, chairman of the Department of Finance, Insurance and Real Estate in the Warrington School of Business. “It speaks to the quality of students that we attract,” he said. He said in addition to simply being impressive candidates for employment, well-prepared graduates have gone on to establish footholds Wachovia and Raymond James. “A lot of times, those are the people we rely on for recruitment,” he said.

If anything, Rauf only deepened the questions around the project’s future, telling an audience at the Council on Foreign Relations think tank that he was “exploring all options” — but declining to specify them — while also arguing that a highIslam. While opponents of the project see it as insulting the memories of the thousands killed by Muslim extremists in the 2001 terrorist attacks, Rauf said he doesn’t see the spot as sacred memorial space. “It’s absolutely disingenuous, as many have said, that that block is hallowed ground,” Rauf said, noting the nearby exotic dance and betting businesses. “So let’s clarify that misperception.” Some Sept. 11 victims’ families and others view the proposed mosque site — in a building damaged by debris from the attacks — as very much part of the terrain of death and sorrow surrounding the trade center. “I just think he’s being very insensitive to say it’s not hallowed ground because of who’s occupying the buildings,” said son, Jimmy, was killed at the trade center. “The strip club didn’t murder my son.” about Islam’s place in America nine years after the Sept. 11 attacks. The controversy has colored the fall campaign season and cast a shadow on this past weekend’s commemoration of the attacks, with supporters and opponents of the mosque project holding rallies nearby. Rauf said a project meant to foster understanding has bemisconceptions of a fundamental clash between Islamic and American values. The Kuwait-born Rauf said his own faith had been shaped by the sense of choosing one’s identity that American society provided, compared with the Muslim milieu from which he emigrated in 1965. “I’m a devout Muslim ... and I’m also a proud American citizen,” said Rauf, noting that he was naturalized in 1979 and has a niece serving in the U.S. Army. “I vote in elections. I pay He said the Islamic center’s organizers were surprised and saddened by the uproar and might not have pursued it had they known what was coming. But he declined to detail any strategy for quieting the clamor — or say whether that might include moving the project. “We are exploring all options as we speak right now, and we will resolve this crisis,” Rauf said. “Everything is on the table.”Imam says NYC mosque site is not ‘hallowed ground’By MARISSA PRIETOAlligator Contributing Writer ity has coordinated with four local farms to bring a Community Supported Agriculture Program to campus beginning October. The program will allow students to eat fresh fruits and vegetables, as well as support local farmers and the economy, said Anna Prizzia, director of the OfStudents would pay up front to one of the four local farms par ticipating in the program, and they will receive a basket of fruit, once a week. “This is a nice stepping stone to having a farmers market on campus,” Prizzia said. Farm, Swallowtail Farm, Kumaham Farms will be participating in the program this year. “College kids are some of the people that get the worst nutrition because they don’t have a lot of time to cook and prepare food, and even the food that’s available on campus obviously isn’t the greatest for them,” said Noah Shitama, co-owner of Swallowtail Farm. Farm will begin delivering Oct. 18, and the other farms will be starting in November. The program will last through June. A full-share bundle, which is eight to 10 items of produce each week, runs from $500 to $550. A half-share bundle, which is four to six items per week, runs from $250 to $275. Students would pay one time, up-front. The produce provided in the baskets will depend on what’s in season.

Or, another example — you’re in your kitchen, dishes stacked high, and you don’t really know where to begin. You’re feeling too lazy to do these household chores, and you’ve got some loose cash. There’s someone you can call on, but it’s not a lawn maintenance service, and it’s not a maid — it’s a man who’s running for city commisMost political candidates raise money with fundraisers and speeches, but Angulo, a 30-year-old Democratic candidate running against Susan Bottcher and Rob Zeller, wants to do things differently. The aspiring commissioner said he wants to perform household chores or other services to people in exchange for political donations. “It’ll help develop a more intimate rapport between the community and myself,” he said. “Here’s a guy who wants to be an toilet or coming to help you with your lawn,” he said about himself. Angulo is not just limited to household work. He is willing to provide other services in exchange for donations. Cooking is one of those, he said, citing his seven years of experience in food service was willing to offer people rides if they need them, or even give ballroom dancing lessons. He said a reason he wants to do this is to get to know people, but he also wants people to get to know him. “That’s been one of my greatest challenges,” Angulo said. “I can’t tell you how many times people have hung up the phone on me or shut their doors on me simply because they don’t know me.” He is yet to be taken up on his offer, which he has posted on Craigslist, but he’s still ready and willing to provide these services for people. “All I really want is the opportunity for get to know what I’m about and to know who I am and see that I’m the real deal,” he said. Using Craigslist isn’t the only quirky thing about Angulo’s campaign strategy. He has also blended his political aspirations with aspirations in a different department — entertainment. He recently collaborated with a local hiphop group, Swaghouse Ent., on shooting a music video that surrounded several of the city’s issues, including scenes of a Students for a Democratic Society protest against the Angulo is still raising money the regular way. He makes the phone calls and he holds the fundraisers normally associated with political campaigns. The only difference is he holds his fundraisers at places like Mars Pub and Laser Tag. Despite his unconventional approach, Angulo is, in essence, a solution-oriented candidate. “He’s very enthusiastic about tackling problems,” said Larry Bruce, the owner of The Laboratory, which Angulo calls his campaign headquarters. “He doesn’t mind going into the issues himself. I think that’s one of his stronger points.”Commission candidate offering to do chores for cash “This is a nice stepping stone to having a farm ers market on campus.”Anna Prizzia Angulo Ne ws National

TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 14, 2010 ALLIGATOR, 7 I want to clear up misconceptions that were represented about the InterResidence Hall Association in Monday’s Alligator. IRHA serves as the major programming arm of UF’s residence halls as well as the students’ voice in the residence halls. Furthermore, IRHA prides itself on its ability to build great leaders out of its ranks, many of whom go on to achieve great things in the university and the world. IRHA alumni include Cicerones, Campus Diplomats, Student Body presidents, doctors, lawyers, teachers and anything in between. IRHA has been able to sustain this reputation through its ability to provide new student leaders with the opportunities and resources they need to succeed in life. The letter in question mentions IRHA’s supposed “unethical” spending of money. I can’t help but refute this. This organization’s spending has rarely come under scrutiny because of our ability to govern our resources in a documents, and our general body of more than 60 members must pass every amount of money we spend. Twice. The two allocations in question were both evaluated according to these guidelines. Furthermore, there seems to be some confusion as to IRHA spending residents’ money irresponsibly. Both times mentioned in the article came from a special fund IRHA has that is not funded solely by residents, or even students at all, for that matter. IRHA takes donations from organizations and businesses we have worked with for years and keep it in a special account with Student Government as outlined by its statutes. This fund is used for many purposes, including helping endow scholarships, donations to charity after catastrophic events such as the earthquake in China, unforeseen expenses and, yes, our IRHA camping trip. This fund is not used liberally and is held to the same strict standards of vetting to which the rest of our money is held. Regardless, it must be said absolutely none of this money is funded in part or at all by our residents’ rent. This account was responsible for the funding of 30 percent of our camping trip with the other 70 percent coming directly from the members going on said trip. We had the option of paying for all of the trip or having our members pay more, but the IRHA Executive Board decided neither were good options. We chose not to cover all of the trip because we weren’t sure our funds would be able to sustain the costs. In addition to this, we did our best to be as inclusive as possible for the camping trip by not asking for more money, as many of our members mentioned they would not be able to afford to go should the price be raised. IRHA prides itself in its ability to bring together all different kinds of people with varying opinions, which is why we hold ourselves to such a high standard when spending funds. We make sure all resident’s voices are heard, should they choose to exer cise that right, and then let democracy prevail by each area’s elected representative. People enjoy coming to our meetings because IRHA provides a great atmosphere that isn’t too serious, but where things are still done properly and suitably debated when necessary with all opinions welcomed. If you would like to join in on the process, stop by our meeting Monday at 6:15 pm in the Reitz Union Room 282. We hope to see you there! Sean Johnson is the IRHA president. Guest columnSean Johnson Letter diminished IRHA reputationIRHA has come a long way these past few years. One would think it would be in the IRHA body’s nature to work together to resolve residence life issues and build community. This is a representative democracy after all. Could there not have been another way to resolve this issue other than for this maverick to publicly harangue his allegedly beloved organization? Could he have tried to work with other IRHA members to professionally rectify this situation? Many voted for him, including me. There was no reason to take it this far. I know his letter will devastate the reputation of IRHA immediately, likely for many years to come. I am immensely saddened that all of the hours IRHA members spend working on programs strictly for the residents have now been spoiled by the published attitude that we are alleged thieves. care deeply about on-campus residents. tive letter defaming IRHA, hundreds of a commitment they believe in and work for every single day. IRHA does many great things. Almost all of it goes unnoticed. It seems only in the rare times like these do you hear people ask, “Did you hear about IRHA?” If this writer truly cared about his residents and his organization, he would be working on that instead of going behind everyone’s back to diminish his cause. 3JM Letter to the Editor

Sports TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 14, 2010 ALLIGATOR www.alligatorSports.org By ANTHONY CHIANGAlligator Staff Writerachiang@alligator.org After four seasons of passing and quarterback runs, the Gators relied on their running backs in the second half of Saturday’s game and it worked. With No. 10 Florida struggling offensively for a second straight week, offensive coordinator Steve Addazio made an adjustment at halftime and decided to use his stable of running backs. Despite just 11 rushing attempts in the ball 26 times in the second half for 209 yards to blow past the Bulls with 31 second-half points and move one identity. “I believe that’s who we are going to be,” coach Urban Meyer said. “Is that the perfect setup? Maybe it is, I don’t know.” Last season, UF turned to dualthreat quarterback Tim Tebow when it needed to establish a run game as he received about 40 percent of the team’s rushing attempts. But the play calling has changed this year with ries. Running backs Jeff Demps (19 car ries), Emmanuel Moody (19), Mike Gillislee (10) and Mack Brown (3) have combined to account for 75 per cent of the team’s rushing attempts this season. “You look in the trust we have in our running backs compared to 2005 — just the growth in that position,” Meyer said. “It’s night and day.” Pouncey makes adjustment: Thanks to an unlikely source of advice, Mike Pouncey improved his snapping against USF. “I moved my hand up on the ball and I was doing better at it but I told my coach that I still wasn’t feeling comfortable,” Pouncey said. A Florida equipment manager knew the answer to his problems. He told the senior center to stagger his right foot back in order to be in a stance similar to the one he used last season at guard. because everybody had an opinion and it just worked for me — I was comfortable in my stance,” Pouncey said. Other than one botched centerUF SOCCER UF FOOTBALL QUOTABLE “ I was going through the drive-thru at McDonald's. As I was leaving the guy told me, 'Hey, don't mess up the snaps anymore.' I said, 'Don't mess up my sandwich anymore.'" Mike Pouncey UF center Running back Jeff Demps was named the SEC Special Teams Player of the Week on Monday after accumulating a career-high 95 yards on kickoff returns against USF. Also, center Mike Pouncey was awarded the SEC Offensive Line Player of the Week. Through two games, three UF players have earned conference honors. Striker McKenzie Barney earned the SEC Of fensive Soccer Player of the Week award after scoring an overtime goal to beat FSU on Friday. The goal came 15 seconds into overtime and allowed the Gators to remain undefeated.Harrison Diamond / Alligator StaffThe Gators ran the ball 26 times in the second half of Saturday's game for 209 yards. 75 percent of the team's rushing attempts have come from the running backs. UF's offensive identity looks to be different this yearHave you ever watched interviews with Muhammad Ali in the days He was still Ali. Still brash. Still driven. But all the characteristics that made him the greatest of all time had eroded. His face looked full, his eyes hollow. He moved gingerly. His words were slow and measured. Few things in sports are more depressing than the end of Ali’s career, even watching it in retrospect. You surely did not need 30 years of hindsight to know he was going to lose to Trevor Berbick. Tennessee football is in that same desperate, overweight, late-30s phase. Players are still wearing Creamsicle jer seys. Fans are still packing the 102,000-seat Neyland Stadium. And we all know the band is still playing “Rocky Top.” But the six-time national champions have won just 12 games the past two seasons and feature their third coach in as many years. Florida-Tennessee is supposed to be a rivalry, but Gators coach Urban Meyer is 5-0 against the Volunteers, with only one of those victories being decided by less than one score. As one Tennessee writer put it, the changes in Knoxville did not appear in big, bold letters. Really, the collapse could happen to any program — even, gulp, Florida. About eight years ago the Gators were in worse shape than the Volunteers. So how exactly did Tennessee implode? Losing the big one In 2001, the No. 2 Volunteers were 30 minutes away from their second national championship appearance in four years. The anatomy of a downfall: How Rocky Top went silent SHE WON TWO OF THREE MATCHES LAST WEEKEND.By STEPHEN SHEEHANAlligator Writer With only nine players on the roster, none of whom are seniors, UF women's tennis coach Roland Thornqvist’s team is young. But it’s certainly not devoid of leadership. Thornqvist is counting on junior Joanna Mather to step up following the departures of Marrit Boonstra and Anastasia Revzina, who exhausted their performance at the Southeastern Conference Coaches Fall Classic in Auburn, Ala. Mather defeated No. 20 Kristi Boxx of Ole Miss (4-6, 6-4, 6-4) on Saturday before beating Tennessee’s Rosalia tournament with a 2-1 record.

TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 14, 2010 ALLIGATOR, 15Rainey expected to return from concussion for trip to Tennesseedrive against the Bulls, the snaps were not a problem. Injuries: The Gators hope to be back at full strength when they start conference play Satur day. Outside linebacker Brandon Hicks said his wrist was “doing good” and that he hopes to get his cast removed in a visit to the doctor Monday. Also, wide receiver Chris Rainey missed the second half against USF with a concussion. Meyer said he expects him to play this week. On the offensive line, James Wilson left Saturday’s game with a swollen knee. However, he should be available to practice this week. Finally, cornerback Jeremy Brown will play against the Vols after missing part of Saturday's game with a strained hamstring. Hill’s status unknown: Will Hill has missed for Saturday’s game against Tennessee is up in the air, too. cause he hasn’t been "ready to play," according to Meyer. When asked about Hill’s status Monday, senior Ahmad Black declined comment. Game time announced: The Southeastern Conference announced that the Florida-Kentucky game will begin at 7 p.m. on Sept. 25 in The Swamp. FOOTBALL, from page 14 Tale of the TAPEThe shovel pass has been a staple of the Gators’ offense for the past two seasons, but the play has been ineffective so far this season. In four attempts, quarterback John Brantley’s shovel passes have gained a combined seven yards. But coach Urban Meyer insists the team will continue to run it, and run it effectively. Florida’s shovel pass is often misunderstood. In reality, the shovel is just one element in a triple option. The quarterback can pitch it to the tight end (“the shovel”), run with it himself or pitch it to a running back on the edge. Meyer said Brantley needs to run outside the pocket faster and read the defense better. Part of the problem so far, Meyer said, has been the team’s inexperience. “The quarterback doing around,” he said. So alligatorSports’ Tyler Jett took a look at exactly what went wrong last week, and what the play looks like when correctly executed. 2nd and 10, Ball on the UF 31-yard line 3rd and 3, Ball on the USF 41-yard line 2nd and Goal, Ball on the USF 7-yard line FLORIDA STATE: Nov 28 SOUTH FLORIDA: Sept. 11 1st and 10, Ball on the FSU 18yard line 1st Quarter 1st Quarter 2nd Quarter 4th Quarter Alligator StaffBut Tennessee blew a 10-point lead to LSU in the SEC Championship, reducing them to a Citrus Bowl appearance. A second national title would have put Rocky Top at the center of the college football universe the same way it did in The Swamp after 2008. The Volunteers remained a premier team, but they could have been the premier team. Losing your hunger Phillip Fulmer became a full-time coach at Tennessee in 1980, just before Ali laced up his gloves for the last time. And just like the former champ, Fulmer was suspected of losing his edge in the 2000s. Tennessee still recruited well, but the excitement generated by those signings ultimately just left fans even more disappointed. Three years after signing the No. 2 class in the nation, Tennessee received a No. 3 preseason ranking in 2005. They ended the year 5-6. The Vols were a darkhorse contender in 2008. Those dreams were dead by week three, when they fell to the Gators 30-6. Losing your credibility ment, who needs no introduction, entered Tennessee riding a then-culturally relevant platform of “change.” He brought a new swagger, landed some premier baddest men in the conference like the newest prishe was new and fans were patient. They could take roadblocks. What they couldn’t take was the abrupt departure in January. And so here lies Tennessee. Their athletic director contender become an afterthought incapable of bringing former assistant coaches back from Duke. What’s worse for Tennessee? A 48-13 loss at home against Oregon, or the fact that the result was precisely what everyone inside Neyland Stadium expected. Does Rocky Top still feel like home sweet home? TYLER, from page 14Young players motivated to improve in practicedue to an injured back and an undiagnosed illness. “I was excited to be able to go over there and play and get some results,” Mather said. Playing against some of the top teams in the SEC was no easy feat and players were physically drained by the last day of competition, Thornqvist said. But the Gators showed the toughness and determination necessary to be one of the top team’s in the country this year. “I really like this team,” he said. “This is the third year in a row that we have great, great chemistry in the locker room.” While young players often need to be pushed, Mather doesn’t believe that will be necessary. She said her teammates are motivated to get in shape and improve their games. “It’s not very hard being a leader because everyone is pretty determined to get better,” Mather said. “I just want to be an example to them about the things to do on the court.” With two top-10 sophomores in Lauren Embree and Allie Will, and the dependable Mather, the Gators have the right blend of talent and leadership this fall.

By MATT WATTSAlligator Writer It was a tale of two nines.

Unfortunately for the No. 19 Gators, ish the second round of the Cougar Classic in sixth place with a team score of 10 over par. Piccio birdied three of her last four holes to post an even-par round of 72 and remain two under for the tournament. Also, junior Evan Jensen birdied two of her last four to post back-toback rounds of 73. “I’m very proud of the way they “That’s going to take momentum into tomorrow for them and for the rest of Piccio and Jensen could have gone even lower. Both golfers had their rounds tar nished by a double bogey. Piccio’s came on the par-three sixth, a hole that “It’s a tough hole, you have to kind said. Sophomore Isabelle Lendl left her initial bunker shot in the sand on the way to a double bogey. “It kind of killed the momentum “It’s a very playable golf course, so to make double really sets you back in Senior Jessica Yadloczky continued her consistent play, sandwiching two birdies between four bogeys for a two-over round of 74, one better than Sunday’s 75. A shaky shot right out of the gate led to a bogey on the drea Watts. After a double bogey on the fourth, Watts was quickly at three over par. But she remained steady and parred every remaining hole for a 75. “She had a lot of birdie putts that that was the theme of the day for our team.

TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 14, 2010 LOCAL Students learn about Quran By CAROLYN TILLO Alligator Staff Writer The soft chants of prayers toward Mecca marked the start and end of "Quran 101" at the Reitz Union Grand Ballroom Monday night. About 100 people attended the event, which was sponsored by Islam on Campus to educate people about the Quran and give them a chance to ask questions about the holy text of Islam, said Nora Zaki, vice president of external affairs for Islam on Campus. Three University Police Department officers were present as a precaution after last week's uproar about the proposed burning of Qurans at the Dove World Outreach Center, but the speech by assistant professor Sarra Tlili and the questions that followed included no mention of Dove or Pastor Terry Jones. Tlili, an expert in Arabic language and literature who teaches in the department of languages, literatures and cultures within the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, filled in for Sheik Faraz Rabbani, the original keynote speaker. Rabbani was held up by U.S. Customs and unable to fly down from Canada for the event, said Khaled Abdelghany, the treasurer of Islam on Campus. In her speech, Tlili explained the history of the Quran and described the themes and style of the text, which the angel Gabnel revealed to the prophet Muhammad over a period of 23 years. Tlili said the word "Quran" literally means "recitation." She also said that the Quran is meant to be spoken, not read silently. Like Judaism and Christianity, Islam emphasizes the unity of God.

Gator Growl cuts music, adds comic KEVIN HART AND AZIZ ANSARI WILL PERFORM. By ELIZABETH BEHIRMAN Alligator Staff Writer Gator Growl will run a little bit differently this year. Instead of a musical performance, the Oct. 15 show will feature two comedians, as well as a show host. Members of the audience will still get their share of Seminole-bashing skits and performances, and this year they will be able to vote on the best one. "We're definitely expecting a good group of people this year," said David DeVinney, director of public relations for Gator Growl. "We have what we believe is a good show planned." This year's headliners will be comedians Aziz Ansari and Kevin Hart, and Dan Levy will host. DeVinney said the staff wanted to include two comedians in the show rather than a musical performance Gator because it is something everyGrowl one in the audience will enjoy, no matter what kind of comedy they like. "Having a multiple-comedian approach guarantees the most entertainment for the majonty of our audience," DeVinney said. The Growl Minute of Fame segment of the show, where students and alumni submit videos to be played during the rally, will be held as a contest this year between students and alumni. DeVinney said the groups have until Oct. 1 to record their skits, which should be under a minute, and upload them to YouTube. After they have uploaded their videos for review, they should e-mail the link as per the instructions on the Gator Growl website. "Our general guidelines are just to keep it in good taste," DeVinney said. Once all the clips are submitted, DeVinney said Gator Growl staff members will vote on the best three and post them to the website where viewers can vote for their favorite.

UF ranked ninth among recruiters surveyed for the report released Sunday. The newspaper surveyed 842 recruiters from public and private companies, nonprofit organizations and federal agencies across the country for the report. "UF is a tremendous fishing ground for employers," Wayne Wallace UF Career Resource Center UF Career Resource Center Director Wayne Wallace said the university has become a frequently targeted school for large corporations that only recruit at a select number of schools. "UF is a tremendous fishing ground for employers," he said. The Wall Street Journal report cites big student populations and good practical training as reasons why major public university graduates are finding success out of school. Wallace had similar observations about UF graduates. He said the university has a large number of graduates and high academic standards, as well as students who are willing and able to relocate for jobs. UF spokesman Steve Orlando said the university has always held its graduates in high esteem. SEE RANK, PAGE 4 Woman rides 'shotbun' in Weinermobile ROLLING GREENS, Fla.

Flu shots now free at SHCC Students looking to prevent the flu this season can now receive free flu vaccines available on campus. Last fall, students had to pay $5 for a flu shot, but due to the high demand for the vaccine, not all students received the shot. The Student Health Care Center ordered about 10,000 flu vaccines this year, when only about 5,000 were ordered last year. Kelly Mitchell, registered nurse at the SHCC, said the flu shot this year will include H1N1 protection. "It's the best remedy to keeping healthy throughout the flu season," Mitchell said. She also recommends eating right and getting enough rest to keep healthy. While the current flu season is unpredictable, Mitchell suggests every student get the flu shot, especially those who have weaker immune systems. "It's free and it takes only a couple of minutes to be in and out of my office," she said. "So, why not get the vaccine?" -REBECCA ASTORGA The Alligator strives to be accurate and clear in its news reports and editorials.

TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 14, 2010 E ALLIGATOR, 3 Florida SAT scores stable, below national average THE STATE AVERAGE IS 1473 ON A 2400-POINT SCALE. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS MIAMI -Florida high school seniors again scored below the national average on the SAT college entrance exam, with the class of 2010 scoring slightly lower than 2009 did. Test results released Monday show Florida students scoring an average of 496 in critical reading, 498 in math and 479 in writing, out of a maximum 800 points in each subject. Combined, Florida's score of 1473 was two points lower than the state scored in 2009 and 37 points below the national combined average of 1509. The state scored below average in every category: the national averages were 501 in reading, 516 in math and 492 tn writing. A record 102,741 of students took the exam in Florida, about 2,500 more students than 2009. Some good news for Florida came from minority students, who generally scored better than their counterparts nationally. Among racial and ethnic groups in Florida, students of Mexican heritage made the largest gains in each subject, jumping 10 points in writing and 9 in reading. Black and Hispanic students overall achieved higher scores in math and reading than their respective racial and ethnic groups nationwide. It was that news that state Education Commissioner Eric Smith focused on. The College Board, which administers the test, said 2010 was Florida's most diverse group to take the test; 48.5 percent come from minority groups, up from 47 percent last year. "Florida's teachers and school leaders have answered the call for increased student college and career readiness with a resounding voice challenging our students to reach higher and unleash their true potential," Smith said in a statement. "Because of their efforts, more of our children will graduate from school prepared for the next stage of their life, more will succeed in their careers and more will experience the happiness and prosperity that National only a quality educational NewS experience can provide." As in other years, persistent trends regarding the relationships between family income and level of parental education held true, with those students coming from the poorest families also recording the lowest scores and those from the wealthiest with the highest -a gap of more than 100 points in all three subject areas. "We need to prepare more of our students for college level work," said Alan Richard, spokesman for the Southern Regional Education Board. "Our economy now demands it, and if we expect to remain competitive globally than this is the type of work force we're going to need to have in the future." Richard said the that while important, the SAT and other college admission tests are not an overall indicator of a state's educational progress. He said SAT scores have generally shifted downward over the last few year, a trend that holds true in much of the Southeast United States. Nationwide, the average SAT score held steady -the combined 1509 was the same score the class of 2009 received. That score is nine points lower than the average in 2006, when the writing section was added and the test shifted to a 2400-point scale.

4, ALLIGATOR U TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 14,2010 Campus organizations host Involvement Carnival By ELISE DONINI Alligator Contributing Writer Students had the chance to learn a little bit more about getting involved on campus Monday afternoon. About 10 organizations gathered at the Reitz Union Colonnade Monday for this semester's Involvement Carnival, which was a part of the Jewish Student Union's Fall Welcome Week. It was an opportunity for members of the organizations to speak with students about what they do and why students should get involved. According to Chelsea Cohen, president of the JSU, the purpose of the event was to help students become involved in clubs and organizations that interest them. "When you come to a school like UF, it's easy to get lost in the crowd," Cohen said, "But by getting involved in a student organization, you can meet new people with the same interests and passions as you, as well as be exposed to social networking and unique opportunities that you ordinarily "By getting involved in a student organization, you can meet new people with the same interests and passions as you." Chelsea Cohen Jewish Student Union wouldn't be aware of." She said JSU tries to appeal to the Student Body as a whole, not just Jewish students. "We work to throw away stereotypes, which is something I personally think is important, especially on a campus as diverse as UF," Cohen said. Mitchell Ortega, a political science major and senior member of College Democrats, enjoyed promoting events and involvement for his organization at the carnival. "College Democrats take great pride in being accessible to students to answer their questions," Ortega said. "There's no better way to facilitate that than tabling at events like this one." AP Photo Devastating Dive The wreckage of an airplane of a state airline Conviasa is seen on the ground after it crashed about 6 miles (10 kilometers) from the eastern city of Puerto Ordaz, Venezuela, Monday, Sept. 13, 2010. The plane was carrying 51 people. About half survived. About 100 people attended the event QURAN,, rom page 1 equality," Tlili said. "All people are created equal. In fact, all creation is created equal, and if you want to become better, it is something that you need to earn." This message of unity was especially relevant after a weekend in which residents of Gainesville gathered together to remember "While I may not agree with everything they believe, it's not my job to condemn them," Jordan Belser UF Senior the victims of Sept. 11 and show their support for Gainesville's Muslim community. Jordan Belser, a senior English major, said she feels Christians and Muslims have a hard time understanding each other, but she wants that to change. "While I may not agree with everything they believe, it's not my job to condemn them," Belser said. "It's my job to love them." Recruiters: Finance majors impressive RANK, from page 1 "We've always believed our students come out prepared for the workplace and the world in general," he said. The ranking makes note of the programs recruiters especially touted. For UF, recruiters gave finance majors especially high praise. The acclaim came as no surprise to Michael Ryngaert, chairman of the Department of Finance, Insurance and Real Estate in the Warrington School of Business. "It speaks to the quality of students that we attract," he said. He said in addition to simply being impressive candidates for employment, well-prepared graduates have gone on to establish footholds U F in major firms like Merrill Lynch, -Wachovia and Raymond James. "A lot of times, those are the people we rely on for recruitment," he said. Wallace agreed. "Our predecessors, the alumni -they paved the way," he said. Japan foreign minister apologizes to POWs 0 HE SAID THOSE VISITING FROM THE US WERE TREATED INHUMANELY. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS TOKYO (AP) -Japan's foreign minister apologized for the suffering of a group of former World War II prisoners of war visiting from the United States and said they were treated inhumanely. The six POWs, their relatives and the daughters of two men who died are the first group of U.S. POWs to visit Japan with government sponsorship, though groups from other countries have been invited previously. "I offer my deep, heartfelt apology for the inhuman treatment you suffered," Foreign Minister Katsuya Okada told the group Monday. The POW group's leader, 90-year-old Lester Tenney, who survived the Bataan Death March in 1942, said he welcomed the government's apology but still seeks recognition from the private companies that "used and abused" prisoners in their mines and factories, often under brutal conditions. "At no time have we gotten from these private companies just a letter," Tenney said. "These private companies have kept quiet for 65 years. It is an insult, because by their keeping quiet they are hoping we will die off." Japan surrendered in 1945 after the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Japanese leaders have apologized for the country's militarist past many times, but the government contends that all reparations issues were settled by treaties after the war. Japanese courts have also ruled that reparations issues must be dealt with on a country-to-country basis, but cases challenging that are pending in several courts. After a short time in Tokyo, each POW will travel to a city of his choice. Some will visit the factories, docks or mines where they worked. Tenney was involved for decades in trying to arrange the visit News and has lobbied for redress from the companies that used POWs after their capture. The companies have had no comment on the visit. Tenney was taken prisoner in 1942 by the Japanese military and forced along with 78,000 prisoners of war -12,000 Americans and 66,000 Filipinos -to walk from the Bataan peninsula on the Philippine island of Luzon to a prison camp. As many as 11,000 died during what became known as the Bataan Death March. He was then brought to Japan and forced to work for Mitsui Mining Co. -now Nippon Coke and Engineering Co. Winners will get trophies UKUWL, from page 1 He said members of the audience will be able to text in their votes during the show. The winners of the contest will get a trophy during the show, which they will get to keep until they pass it on to next year's competition winners.

TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 14, 2010 0 ALLIGATOR, 5 Commission candidate offering to do chores for cash By ALEXANDER KLAUSNER Alligator Writer Picture this: You're sitting in your house, looking out onto your yard, and you notice your lawn more closely resembles a jungle. Or, another example -you're in your kitchen, dishes stacked high, and you don't really know where to begin. You're feeling too lazy to do these household chores, and you've got some loose cash. There's someone you can call on, but it's not a lawn maintenance service, and it's not a maid -it's a man who's running for city commissioner of Gainesville, Ozzy Angulo. Most political candidates raise money with fundraisers and speeches, but Angulo, a 30-year-old Democratic candidate running against Susan Bottcher and Rob Zeller, wants to do things differently. The aspiring commissioner said he wants to perform household chores or other services to people in exchange for political donations. "It'll help develop a more intimate rapport between the community and myself," he said. "Here's a guy who wants to be an elected official, but he's not above cleaning a toilet or coming to help you with your lawn," he said about himself. Angulo is not just limited to household work. He is willing to provide other services in exchange for donations. Cooking is one of those, he said, citing his seven years of experience in food service as one of his qualifications. He also said he was willing to offer people rides if they need them, or even give ballroom dancing lessons. He said a reason he wants to do this is to get to know people, but he also wants people to get to know him. "That's been one of my greatest challenges," Angulo said. "I can't tell you how many times people have hung up the phone on me or shut their doors on me simply because they don't know me." He is yet to be taken up on his offer, which he has posted on Craigslist, but he's still ready and willing to provide these services for people. "All I really want is the opportunity for the people of Gainesville to get to know what I'm about and to know who I am and see that I'm the real deal," he said. Using Craigslist isn't the only quirky thing about Angulo's campaign strategy. He has also blended his political aspirations with aspirations in a different department -entertainment. He recently collaborated with a local hiphop group, Swaghouse Ent., on shooting a music video that surrounded several of the city's issues, including scenes of a Students for a Democratic Society protest against the shooting of Kofi Adu-Brempong. Angulo is still raising money the regular way. He makes the phone calls and he holds the fundraisers normally associated with political campaigns. The only difference is he holds his fundraisers at places like Mars Pub and Laser Tag. Despite his unconventional approach, Angulo is, in essence, a solution-oriented candidate. "He's very enthusiastic about tackling problems," said Larry Bruce, the owner of The Laboratory, which Angulo calls his campaign headquarters. "He doesn't mind going into the issues himself. I think that's one of his stronger points." Imam says NYC mosque site is not 'hallowed ground' 0 HE USED A NEARBY STRIP CLUB AS AN EXAMPLE. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW YORK -It is two blocks from ground zero, but the site of a proposed mosque and Islamic center shouldn't be seen as "hallowed ground" in a neighborhood that also contains a strip club and a betting parlor, the cleric leading the effort said Monday. Making an ardent case for the compatibility of Islam and American values, Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf reiterated that he is searching for a solution to the furor the project has created. But he left unanswered exactly what he had in mind. If anything, Rauf only deepened the questions around the project's future, telling an audience at the Council on Foreign Relations think tank that he was "exploring all options" -but declining to specify them -while also arguing that a highprofile site is necessary to get across his message of moderate Islam. While opponents of the project see it as insulting the memories of the thousands killed by Muslim extremists in the 2001 terrorist attacks, Rauf said he doesn't see the spot as sacred memorial space. "It's absolutely disingenuous, as many have said, that that block is hallowed ground," Rauf said, noting the nearby exotic dance and betting businesses. "So let's clarify that misperception." Some Sept. 11 victims' families and others view the proposed mosque site -in a building damaged by debris from the attacks -as very much part News of the terrain of death and sorrow surrounding the trade center. "I just think he's being very insensitive to say it's not hallowed ground because of who's occupying the buildings," said Jim Riches, a former New York City deputy fire chief whose son, Jimmy, was killed at the trade center. "The strip club didn't murder my son." The project has become a flashpoint for worldwide debate about Islam's place in America nine years after the Sept. 11 attacks. The controversy has colored the fall campaign season and cast a shadow on this past weekend's commemoration of the attacks, with supporters and opponents of the mosque project holding rallies nearby. Rauf said a project meant to foster understanding has become unduly mired in conflict and what he described as misconceptions of a fundamental clash between Islamic and American values. The Kuwait-born Rauf said his own faith had been shaped by the sense of choosing one's identity that American society provided, compared with the Muslim milieu from which he emigrated in 1965. "I'm a devout Muslim .and I'm also a proud American citizen," said Rauf, noting that he was naturalized in 1979 and has a niece serving in the U.S. Army. "I vote in elections. I pay taxes. I pledge allegiance to the flag. And I'm a Giants fan." He said the Islamic center's organizers were surprised and saddened by the uproar and might not have pursued it had they known what was coming. But he declined to detail any strategy for quieting the clamor -or say whether that might include moving the project. "We are exploring all options as we speak right now, and we are working through what will be a solution, God willing, that will resolve this crisis," Rauf said. "Everything is on the table." Program brings fresh produce to students By MARISSA PRIETO Alligator Contributing Writer The UF Office of Sustainability has coordinated with four local farms to bring a Community Supported Agriculture Program to campus beginning October. The program will allow students to eat fresh fruits and vegetables, as well as support local farmers and the economy, said Anna Prizzia, director of the Office of Sustainability. Students would pay up front to one of the four local farms participating in the program, and they will receive a basket of fruit, vegetables, herbs and flowers once a week. "This is a nice stepping stone to having a farmers market on campus," Prizzia said. The Family Garden Organic Farm, Swallowtail Farm, Kumane's Organic Garden and Graham Farms will be participating in the program this year. "College kids are some of the people that get the worst nutrition because they don't have a lot of time to cook and prepare food, and even the food that's available on campus obviously isn't the greatest for them," said Noah Shitama, co-owner of Swallowtail Farm. "This is a nice stepping stone to having a farmers market on campus." Anna Prizzia Director, Office of Sustainability The Family Garden Organic Farm will begin delivering Oct. 18, and the other farms will be starting in November. The program will last through June. A full-share bundle, which is eight to 10 items of produce each week, runs from S500 to S550. A half-share bundle, which is four to six items per week, runs from $250 to $275. Students would pay one time, up-front. The produce provided in the baskets will depend on what's in season. For more information or to sign up, visit www.sustainability.ufl.edu/ gatorscsa.

6, ALLIGATOR U TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 14, 2010 Do Ask, Do Tell Judge's ruling right for America's armed forces he military might soon see an overwhelming number of dirty little secrets come out. Late last week, while Gainesville was worrying about its own "Fahrenheit 451" episode, a California federal judge ruled (finally) that the United States military's "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy was unconstitutional. Saying it violated gay members of the military's First Amendment and due process rights, U.S. District Judge Virginia Phillips ignited the fire that gay Americans and allies alike have sought since Bill Clinton's administration placed a gag order on the gays with guns. And at a time when gay members of our military who are just as well trained in services necessary to serve their country and who can speak languages just as well as their heterosexual counterparts are being fired for coming out publicly in an open act of defiance, we're glad change has come in the form of judicial action. And we're disappointed it still hasn't come in legislative form. A repeal of the controversial, and now apparently unconstitutional, 17-year-old law has yet to come in the U.S. Senate following Sen. John McCain's warning of a filibuster. We're hopeful the new ruling will jump-start the Senate's actions to end the policy that President Barack Obama promised he would put an end to during his administration. We're hopeful the appeal process will not result in a reversal of Phillips' ruling, so the military can stop bickering about this discriminatory policy and get back to what it does best: spending trillions of our dollars killing people across the globe. Carrots crusades evolutions have to start somewhere. And some crafty farmers want this revolution to start where Naked Chef Jamie Oliver's died: in the grocery store. A fierce coalition of nearly 50 carrot farmers across the country has amassed an army to get fat kids to eat a la Bugs Bunny. Launching a $25 million campaign, the carrot coalition hopes to help fight America's obesity epidemic with an ingenious effort -making carrots look like junk food. The very notion of this campaign might explain why, according to the childhood obesity organization Coalition of Angry Kids, one in three American children is overweight or obese. When we're forced to market baby carrots which some members of the Editorial Board seriously eat like candy -like Cheetos and potato chips, therein lies the very problem with our sedentary schoolchildren. But then again, the critical crusade to create a healthier America has clearly become an issue of utmost importance in our nation of fatties, as first lady Michelle Obama has made it her personal policy of choice with those gardening guns of steel. And if it takes packaging carrots in Doritos-like bags and issuing Internet video games in which carrots garner more stardom than Lara Croft's upper half to get our country's children to eat vegetables instead of Cheetos, carrots instead of crullers, then let's do it, America. Most importantly, we're glad we'll see fewer Americans with orange-stained Cheetos fingers. a ll te independent forida Emily Fuggetta EDITOR Paul Runnestrand Stefania Ferro MANAGING EDITORS Jared Misner 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 include the author's name, classification and phone number Names will 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 A or send them to PO Box 14257, GainesviIle, FL 32604-2257Columns of about 450 words about original topics and editorial cartoons are also welcome Questions?

From this moment forward, America can fashion its future with hypocritical androids instead of relying on weak humans with their annoying gray areas and tendency toward consensus. Scientists at the University of California, Berkeley have introduced an "electronic skin" that senses touch using confusing things like nanoparticles and complex polymers. The details were published in a scientific journal last week, but the vital point to take away from this invention is the fact this e-skin can be sewn onto an android for hours of non-lethal handshakes and photo ops. As if heralded by angels, an experiment at Georgia Tech completed the necessary ingredients for artificial statesmanship with the inception of the first lying robot. This robot liar, according to an article in the London Daily Mail, could behave deceptively by laying a false trail about its movements. It can also tailor its trickery of other robots based on how much knowledge it has of the robot it attempts to deceive. From this description, it sounds like our robot liar is already campaigning for the fall elections. Think of all the money our country would save if all we needed to do was switch off our politicians at night and plug them into a standard wall socket. As it stands, it costs more than $5 million a year to feed Nancy Pelosi (she can reportedly eat her body weight in arugula within seven minutes of it being placed in her cage) and C, Tommy Maple letters@alligator org keep John Boehner slathered in organic Thousand Island dressing nightly to preserve his luminescent tan. Entourages of aides could be lopped from the federal payroll in an instant if we stood strong and elected only lying robots instead of actual humans to higher office. Reprogramming based on the latest polls would be as easy as the push of a button, and the teleprompter could be eliminated entirely. The advent of bureaucratic androids even bodes well for upstart political movements like our Tea Party Patriots. The Tea Party has thus far struggled with an identity crisis, mostly based on the fact it's a nebulous concoction of nonsensical libertarians and limp Pentecostals. Tea Partiers are having a heck of a time finding a legislative agenda that fits their varied needs, and the closest they have come to a political plan is an idea to pack the Supreme Court with the righteous southern rockers .38 Special and the remaining members of Lynyrd Skynyrd. With the ability to build precisely the right lying robot to suit their requirements, Tea Party Patriots could rally behind a candidate who stands for every ideal they hold dear and represents exactly who they want to pilot our country into an uncertain and murky future: Rambo Jesus, wearing a tuxedo T-shirt and a camo hat from Bass Pro Shops.

TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 14, 2010 U ALLIGATOR, 7 Letter diminished IRHA reputation IRHA has come a long way these past few years. One would think it would be in the IRHA body's nature to work together to resolve residence life issues and build community. This is a representative democracy after all. Could there not have been another way to resolve this issue other than for this maverick to publicly harangue his allegedly beloved organization? Could he have tried to work with other IRHA members to professionally rectify this situation? Many voted for him, including me. There was no reason to take it this far. I know his letter will devastate the reputation of IRHA immediately, likely for many years to come. I am immensely saddened that all of the hours IRHA members spend working on programs strictly for the residents have now been spoiled by the published attitude that we are alleged thieves. IRHA is filled with individuals who care deeply about on-campus residents. Thanks to this selfish and unimaginative letter defaming IRHA, hundreds of people must struggle even more to fulfill a commitment they believe in and work for every single day. IRHA does many great things. Almost all of it goes unnoticed. It seems only in the rare times like these do you hear people ask, "Did you hear about IRHA?" If this writer truly cared about his residents and his organization, he would be working on that instead of going behind everyone's back to diminish his cause.

GatorWell Health Promotion Services 273-4450 gatorwell.ufsa.ufl.edu IRHA a fiscally responsible, inclusive organization want to clear up misconceptions that were represented about the InterResidence Hall Association in Monday's Alligator. IRHA serves as the major programming arm of UF's residence halls as well as the students' voice in the residence halls. Furthermore, IRHA prides itself on its ability to build great leaders out of its ranks, many of whom go on to achieve great things in the university and the world. IRHA alumni include Cicerones, Campus Diplomats, Student Body presidents, doctors, lawyers, teachers and anything in between. IRHA has been able to sustain this reputation through its ability to provide new student leaders with the opportunities and resources they need to succeed in life. The letter in question mentions IRHA's supposed "unethical" spending of money. I can't help but refute this. This organization's spending has rarely come under scrutiny because of our ability to govern our resources in a fiscally responsible way. IRHA's budgets are governed by no fewer than five documents, and our general body of more than 60 members must pass every amount of money we spend. Twice. The two allocations in question were both evaluated according to these guidelines. Furthermore, there seems to be some confusion as to IRHA spending residents' money irresponsibly. Both times mentioned in the article came from a special fund IRHA has that is not funded solely by residents, or even students at all, for that matter. IRHA takes donations from organizations and businesses we have worked with for years and keep it in a special account with Student Government as outlined by its statutes. This fund is used for many purposes, including helping endow scholarships, donations to charity after catastrophic events such as the earthquake in China, Dare to Care Donate a Bear! Donate new or nearly new teddies to the American Cancer Society's Bears for Cares Please bring donations to the Gainesville American Cancer Society Office or Contact Margaret Shaw at 352-376-6866 ext. 5063 or e-mail at margaret.shaw@cancer.org NS" Sean Johnson unforeseen exSpeaking Out penses and, yes, our IRHA camping trip. This fund is not used liberally and is held to the same strict standards of vetting to which the rest of our money is held. Regardless, it must be said absolutely none of this money is funded in part or at all by our residents' rent. This account was responsible for the funding of 30 percent of our camping trip with the other 70 percent coming directly from the members going on said trip. We had the option of paying for all of the trip or having our members pay more, but the IRHA Executive Board decided neither were good options. We chose not to cover all of the trip because we weren't sure our funds would be able to sustain the costs. In addition to this, we did our best to be as inclusive as possible for the camping trip by not asking for more money, as many of our members mentioned they would not be able to afford to go should the price be raised. IRHA prides itself in its ability to bring together all different kinds of people with varying opinions, which is why we hold ourselves to such a high standard when spending funds. We make sure all resident's voices are heard, should they choose to exercise that right, and then let democracy prevail by each area's elected representative. People enjoy coming to our meetings because IRHA provides a great atmosphere that isn't too serious, but where things are still done properly and suitably debated when necessary with all opinions welcomed. If you would like to join in on the process, stop by our meeting Monday at 6:15 pm in the Reitz Union Room 282. We hope to see you there!

8, ALLIGATOR U TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 14, 2010 4aS s CRAZY HOURS Mayor outlasts Terry Jones -again By JON SILMAN Alligator Staff Writer There were roaches in the mayor's office. It was Thursday, 10 a.m., in the most famous town in the world. Pastor Terry Jones, the local irritant with the pro-wrestler mustache, had the world by the ear and way too much pride. Craig Lowe, Gainesville's first openly gay mayor, had a fiasco on his hands. The bug guy, holding a tank of chemicals and a spray gun, asked the receptionist where to start. "I dunno, anywhere. You're the bug man." "What kind of roaches are they?" "They're big, you know, big fat ones. And they fly." The mayor was in his office, a bright room with huge windows that overlooked the courtyard of City Hall. This summer, before "International Burn a Koran Day," Lowe was the main target of a Jones rampage. "NO HOMO MAYOR," said the sign on the lawn of Jones' church. Jones has long been a nuisance. Like those roaches scurrying through the office walls, he was creepy but essentially harmless. Lowe would swat at him and condemn him, but he just wouldn't die. Now, ever since Jones said he wanted to burn those books, Lowe's life has gotten considerably more complicated. The town was literally crawling with crazies, protesters and news crews. He'd been talking to reporters non-stop for the past two days. The problem was, the mayor is not a fan of bright lights and big crowds. He's a one-on-one kind of guy. Lowe is warm, attentive. Ask him a question, and he'll pause and really ponder it. If he answers too quickly he might stutter, as if the thoughts come faster than the words. Being the center of attention is part of his job, sure, but public speaking makes him nervous. No one knew what the weekend would bring him, except that it would all happen in the biggest spotlight he has ever faced. "I think we've been able to step to the challenges so far," he said. "We'll get through this weekend, and we'll move on." On Lowe's desk was a book so battered and worn it was almost split in two, held together by a thin rubber band. It was a Quran, given to him that week by a man who cared it for 20 years in his back Thomas Plevik/ Mayor Craig Lowe poses for a photo in his office Monday. pocket. That man must have felt that Lowe could use it. U U U In the eighth grade, Lowe ran for class president. His classmates, in a situation of irony only clear through the lens of time, put up signs around the school that said, "SAY NO TO HOMO LOWE." Needless to say, he lost that election. He can laugh about it now. In high school, he came out to his best friend, who said, "I'd wondered if that were the case." His favorite actor is Jake Gyllenhaal. He's been in love a few times, but he's currently single. And since the death of his 20-year-old cat, Jackson, he lives alone. He has an unparalleled sense of equality, cultivated from years of dealing with his own discrimination. He pulled three terms as a city commissioner and couldn't help but be affected by the issues of intolerance he faced on a daily basis. "Whenever I would hear of someone who had been kicked out of their house because they're gay, or seeing someone in a store being followed around just because they're black, that bothered me. Or hearing someone not get financial aid for school because their parents disapprove of being gay and wouldn't fill out the required paper work. Stories like that really do impact me." Enter Terry Jones. Lowe has been dealing with people like Jones his whole life. Jones, who runs an online furniture business from his church. Jones, who teaches that Islam is of the devil. Jones, whose "NO HOMO MAYOR" sign didn't work: Lowe won the election in a re-count by 42 votes, making history in the process. Back then, Lowe called Jones and his church "an embarrassment to our community," and Jones' church made a video calling Lowe a fag. For a while there, that looked the long and short of it. Lowe, sworn in as mayor in May, spent his first four months in office occupied with budget troubles. Gainesville passed the 20th anniversary of the Danny Rolling murders without incident. But over at the Dove Outreach Center, Jones was scurrying and planning. The anniversary of Sept. 11 was approaching. Jones tweeted that Sept. 11 would be "International Burn a Koran Day." He was upset about the planned ground zero mosque. He had sipped the spotlight; now he wanted the full cup. The story caught fire when CNN picked it up. At the end of August, The New York Times reported that Jones said the Quran was full of lies, though he'd never read it. By early September the protests had started, the first in Indonesia, then in Afghanistan, where they burned an effigy of the pastor while chanting "death to America." Jones got hammered by Anderson Cooper, then called out by the Vatican, then by President Barack Obama. Then came a personal phone call from Secretary of Defense Robert Gates. During all the drama, Lowe stayed updated from the same media that was hanging on Jones' every word. "It was such a fluid situation. I was just ready for anything," he said. Jones was getting more than 100 death threats a day, and his people were carrying loaded guns while they guarded the perimeter of the church. Craig Lowe's nemesis had become an international pest. "At this point, there's real danger," the mayor said, sipping coffee. "His actions are extremely provocabve. We live in a volatile world, and we need to rise above the cycle of provocation and potential violence." Nothing irked Lowe more than bigots and bullies. And now this backyard bully has the attention of the whole world. At Jones' church, the media were heavy and deep on the lawn. Friday dawned with Terry Jones calling in to NBC's "Today" show. Later, he claimed he'd negotiated a deal to relocate the ground zero mosque. No one bought it, least of all the people in charge of the project. The Quran burning was on, then off, then suspended, all in the same 24 hours. By late afternoon Friday, it was definitely off. The town could breathe again, and the media had to balance the relief of no longer having to contribute to the problem with the reality that one of the biggest news events of the year had lost its legs. There was still the possibility of those pesky terrorist attacks. So they camped. Up the road at Trinity United Methodist, a sprawling, elegant beast of a church, the local interfaith community was gathering for peace. The meeting hall was a convention of sorts. Because, or maybe in spite of, the latest Jones news, quite a few media members found their way into the gathering. They looked like sixth-grade dancers, dressed up but confused about how to make a move. They knew the story was here somewhere. They just had to find it. The church floor was divided into stations. The middle of the space held the bread table, the centerpiece of the evening. At the kid's art table a young girl used magic markers on a white paper and attracted lots of white light attention. Lowe walked slow and blended in with his black slacks. In a corner, he admired the art gallery. No one noticed the man with the rolled up giveaway T-shirt in his hand. Even though the burning was off, he didn't feel like the town was out of the woods yet. Nothing was certain with Jones, he said. Would he ask for assistance from anyone? If necessary, he would ask for assistance from the governor. Was he going to say a few words torght? Pause. Stutter. Well, I will if I have to, yes. Smile. Humeraa Qamar, head of the Gainesville Interfaith Forum, called the room to attention from the podium. Dan Johnson, head pastor of the church, found Lowe and ushered him the left side of the stage, whispering in his ear. Lowe looked nervous, but nodded. He started to fidget. His left hand tightened and released the T-shirt. Qamar called UF President Bernie Machen to the stage. Lowe looked down at his tie and straightened it with his right hand. He looked up at Machen and then straightened it again. Qamar got back up to the stage, and Lowe took a deep breath. At times like this he always told himself: It's gotta be done. Here I go. One step, two steps. He was on the stage. The applause was loud. The lights bright. He clenched the podium with both hands. The applause died down. He was steel now. Centered. Three seconds to go. Two. One. He leaned into it. "This right here is what Gainesville is all about." No stutter. No pause. No notes. "When someone questions our unity and our solidarity, Gainesville truly meets the challenge." Of course, he meant Jones. "We are a community that welcomes everyone regardless of religion, race, origin, gender, sexual orientation or any other factor." Pause for applause. He killed it. The media smelled their story. "That is the image that we will project to the rest of the world for years to come. And its thanks to you that we have shown the world who Gainesville truly is. Thanks for being here .and lets keep working together for a better tomorrow." Applause explosion. Media to stage like flies to death. In the bright light the mayor just stood there, stoic. U U U Later that night, Maria KuhnBrotton was drinking Patron at the upstairs bar of the local gay bar, the University Club. She spotted Lowe, vodka cranberry in hand. She told him he was way too good looking to be gay. He smiled and thanked her. She couldn't help noticing how relaxed he looked. He said sometimes you've just got to go with the flow. That night in Gainesville, Terry Jones was flying to New York for an appearance on the "Today" show. The Gator football team was preparing to beat the University of South Florida Bulls. The Gainesville Muslim community was preparing for a peace gathering on the plaza where the homeless hang out. Protesters were preparing to swarm Jones' church in the morning, outnumbering his congregation by 10 to one. And Maria Kuhn-Brotton was texting her daughter from a gay bar: "Omg!!!! I am having shots with the mayor of gville at uc]] How proud r u of mom!!!" The balance of power was back to normal in the mayor's town. Tomorrow, he had another speech to give. But tonight, as the most stressful week he's faced so far drew to a close, he celebrated in a place he felt at home.

Sports TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 14, 2010 ALLIGATOR www.alligatorSports.org UF's offensive identity I -p p Harriso The Gators ran the ball 26 times in the second half of Saturday's game for 20 of the team's rushing attempts have come from the running backs. The anatomy of a downfall: How Rocky Tor H ave you ever watched interviews "with Muhammad All in the days before his last fight t He was still Ali. Still brash. Still driven. But all the characteristics that made him the greatest of all lime had eroded. His face looked full, his eyes hollow. He moved gingerly. His words were slow and measured. Few things in sports are more depressing than the end of Ali's career, even watching it in retrospect. You surely did not need 30 years of hindsight to know he was going to lose to Trevor Berbick. Tennessee football is in that same desperate, overweight, late-30s phase. Players are still wearing Creamsicle jerseys. Fans are still packing the 102,000-seat Neyland Stadium. And we all know the band is still playing "Rocky Top." But the six-time national champions have won just 12 games the past two seasons and feature their third coach in as went silent Tyler Jett The Jett Stream tjett@alligator org many years. Florida-Tennessee is supposed to be a rivalry, but Gators coach Urban Meyer is 5-0 against the Volunteers, with only one of those victories being decided by less than one score. As one Tennessee writer put it, the changes in Knoxville did not appear in big, bold letters. Really, the collapse could happen to any program -even, gulp, Florida. About eight years ago the Gators were in worse shape than the Volunteers. So how exactly did Tennessee implode?

By STEPHEN SHEEHAN Alligator Writer With only nine players on the roster, none of whom are seniors, UF women's tennis coach Roland Thornqvist's team is young. But its certainly not devoid of leadership. Thornqvist is counting on junior Joanna Mather to step up following the departures of Marrit Boonstra and Anastasia Revzina, who exhausted their eligibility last year. She put on a terrific performance at the Southeastern Conference Coaches Fall Classic in Auburn, Ala. Mather defeated No. 20 Kristi Boxx of Ole Miss (4-6, 6-4, 6-4) on Saturday before beating Tennessee's Rosalia Alda (6-3, 6-4) on Sunday, finishing the tournament with a 2-1 record. "It's not very hard being a leader because everyone is pretty determined to get better."

TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 14, 2010 U ALLIGATOR, 15 Rainey expected to return from concussion for trip to Tennessee ru T CALL, from page 14 drive against the Bulls, the snaps were not a problem. Injuries: The Gators hope to be back at full strength when they start conference play Saturday. Outside linebacker Brandon Hicks said his wrist was "doing good" and that he hopes to get his cast removed in a visit to the doctor Monday. Also, wide receiver Chris Rainey missed the second half against USF with a concussion. Meyer said he expects him to play this week. On the offensive line, James Wilson left Saturday's game with a swollen knee. However, he should be available to practice this week. Finally, cornerback Jeremy Brown will play against the Vols Football after missing part of Saturday's game with a strained hamstring. Hill's status unknown: Will Hill has missed the first two games of the season and his status for Saturday's game against Tennessee is up in the air, too. The safety has not seen the field this year because he hasn't been "ready to play," according to Meyer. When asked about Hill's status Monday, senior Ahmad Black declined comment. Game time announced: The Southeastern Conference announced that the Florida-Kentucky game will begin at 7 p.m. on Sept. 25 in The Swamp. The shovel pass has been a staple of the Gators' offense for the past two seasons, but the play has been ineffective so far this season. In four attempts, quarterback John Brantley's I Fill M e I shovel passes have gained a combined seven yards. But coach Urban Meyer insists the team will continue to run it, and run it effectively. Florida's shovel pass is often misunderstood. In reality, the shovel is just one element in a triple option. The quarterback can pitch it to the tight end ("the shovel"), run with it himself or pitch it to a running back on the edge. Meyer D said Brantley needs to run outside the pocket faster and read the defense better. Part of A the problem so far, Meyer said, has been the team's inexperience. "The quarterback doing it is new, the people catching it [are] new and, up until now, a lot of linemen were shuffled around," he said. So alligatorSports' Tyler Jett took a look at exactly what went wrong last week, and what the play looks like when correctly executed. FLORIDA STATE: Nov 28J -1st and 10, Ball on the FSU 18yard line Before the snap, the Seminoles lined up in a 4-3 defense When Tebow gets the ball and runs left, two linebackers and the strong safety flow with the play while the third outside linebacker is cut blocked by left tackle Xavier Nixon Right guard Mike Pouncey pulled to the left side of the field on the play and headed up to the linebackers Because the linebackers had already flowed far to the left, Pouncey posted his body inside FSU's middle linebacker, making an easy block assuming Florida cuts the ball to the inside And, reading the flow of the defense, Tebow does just that by pitching the ball to tight end Aaron Hernandez Hernandez, who lined up on the right side of the field before the snap, looped behind the line to the left side Once he got the ball, he ran untouched into the end zone, sprung by Nixon's and Pouncey's blocks Young players motivated to improve in practice TENNIS, from page 14_ due to an injured back and an undiagnosed illness. "I was excited to be able to go over there and play and get some results," Mather said. Playing against some of the top teams in the SEC was no easy feat and players were physically drained by the last day of competition, Thornqvist said. But the Gators showed the toughness and determination necessary to be one of the top team's in the country this year. "I really like this team," he said. "This is the third year in a row that we have great, great chemistry in the locker room. While young players often need to be pushed, Mather doesn't believe that will be necessary. She said her teammates are motivated to get in shape and improve their games. "It's not very hard being a leader because everyone is pretty determined to get better," Mather said. "I just want to be an example to them about the things to do on the court." With two top-10 sophomores in Lauren Embree and Allie Will, and the dependable Mather, the Gators have the right blend of talent and leadership this fall. Steven H. Keys / Alligator Staff Without any seniors on the team, UF junior Joanna Mather will be looked upon to lead the team. SOUTH FLORIDA: Sept. 11 2nd and 10, Ball on the UF 31-yard line USF lined up with five at the line, including a linebacker to Brantley's left A defensive back on the same side crowded the line, as if he would blitz Both the linebacker and safety rush up the field, eliminating Brantley's options to keep it or pitch it left to running back Jeff Demps, so he pitches itforward to flex back Trey Burton Burton, who started the play on the rightside of the field, looks to run leftwhen he gets the ball, butthree Bulls defenders are waiting atthe second level and the Gators only have two blockers, Carl Johnson and Jon Halapio Either Omarius Hines was supposed to crack down on a linebacker from the slot receiver position, or USF read the play well Either way, Florida gainsjust three yards 'SM = 3rd and 3, Ball on the USF 41-yard line Florida lined up with three receivers right, and USF only put one corner on that side, choosing instead to keep three players deep and crowd the line with six defenders At the snap, Brantley steps right, but a Bulls linebacker rushes up field Brantley pitches the ball inside to Hines, but two defensive lineman are waiting for him, stopping the play at the line of scrimmage If Brantley pitched the ball right to Moody, the running back appeared to have an outside lane, and three Florida receivers were posted up on three USF defensive backs more than 10 yards downfield 2nd and Goal, Ball on the USF 7-yard line USF lines up in a 4-3, but with both outside linebackers crowding the line of scrimmage At the snap, Brantley steps left, meets a linebacker and pitches inside to Burton Halapio, lined up on the right side, pulls and tries to kick out the left side defensive end, but he doesn't make solid contact When Halapio moves up field to engage a middle linebacker, the end easily tackles Burton With a solid block on the end, the Gators' line might have formed a big enough hole inside for Burton to rush to the goal line Brantley also might have been able to pitch leftto Moody on the edge for a good play As it is, Florida gained just two yards Alligator Stafi TYLER, from page 14 But Tennessee blew a 10-point lead to LSU in the SEC Championship, reducing them to a Citrus Bowl appearance. A second national title would have put Rocky Top at the center of the college football universe the same way it did in The Swamp after 2008. The Volunteers remained a premier team, but they could have been the premier team. Losing your hunger Phillip Fulmer became a full-time coach at Tennessee in 1980, just before Ali laced up his gloves for the last time. And just like the former champ, Fulmer was suspected of losing his edge in the 2000s. Tennessee still recruited well, but the excitement generated by those signings ultimately just left fans even more disappointed. Three years after signing the No. 2 class in the nation, Tennessee received a No. 3 preseason ranking in 2005. They ended the year 5-6. The Vols were a darkhorse contender in 2008. Those dreams were dead by week three, when they fell to the Gators 30-6. Losing your credibility Justifiably, Fulmer was fired in 2008. His replacement, who needs no introduction, entered Tennessee riding a then-culturally relevant platform of "change." He brought a new swagger, landed some premier recruits and kept his fists clinched, ready to fight the baddest men in the conference like the newest prisoner. He wasn't successful in his first season, but he was new and fans were patient. They could take roadblocks. What they couldn't take was the abrupt departure in January. And so here lies Tennessee. Their athletic director is under fire after watching a national championship contender become an afterthought incapable of bringing former assistant coaches back from Duke. What's worse for Tennessee? A 48-13 loss at home against Oregon, or the fact that the result was precisely what everyone inside Neyland Stadium expected. Does Rocky Top still feel like home sweet home? I

16, ALLIGATOR U TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 14, 2010 Gators struggle on front nine, finish day in sixth By MATT WATTS Alligator Writer It was a tale of two nines. The UF women's golf team -led by sophomore Mia Piccio's second consecutive day with four birdies shot three under par on the back nine at Yeaman's Hall Golf Club on Monday. Unfortunately for the No.19 Gators, they were nine over on the front to finish the second round of the Cougar Classic in sixth place with a team score of 10 over par. Piccio birdied three of her last four holes to post an even-par round of 72 and remain two under for the tournament. Also, junior Evan Jensen birdied two of her last four to post back-toback rounds of 73. "I'm very proud of the way they finished," coach Jan Dowling said. "That's going to take momentum into tomorrow for them and for the rest of the team." Piccio and Jensen could have gone even lower. Both golfers had their rounds tarnished by a double bogey. Piccio's came on the par-three sixth, a hole that cost the Gators five strokes Monday. "It's a tough hole, you have to kind of hit it in the exact spot" Dowling said. Sophomore Isabelle Lendl left her initial bunker shot in the sand on the way to a double bogey. "It kind of killed the momentum midway through the round," she said. "It's a very playable golf course, so to make double really sets you back in regards to the rest of the field." Senior Jessica Yadloczky continued her consistent play, sandwiching two birdies between four bogeys for a two-over round of 74, one better than Sunday's 75. A shaky shot right out of the gate led to a bogey on the first hole for junior Andrea Watts. After a double bogey on the fourth, Golf Watts was quickly at three over par. But she remained steady and parred every remaining hole for a 75. "She had a lot of birdie putts that just didn't fall," Dowling said. "I think that was the theme of the day for our team. We're hoping that it happens tomorrow. Asked about her team's chances of contending for the tournament tide, coach Dowling was optimistic. "There's birdies out there for sure," she said. "With this team, they all have the potential to be winning tournaments individually If they all get hot at the same time, you never know." 4 'If Steven H. Keys / Alligator Staff Junior Evan Jensen picked up a birdie in two of her last four holes Monday to finish the day at one over par. A double bogey on the ninth hole hurt her score. NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE McDaniels: Tebow to see limited playing time for now THE ASSOCIATED PRESS ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -Fans wishing to see more of Tim Tebow might get more of the same instead. Broncos coach Josh McDaniels said Monday that he's not planning to use his raw rookie quarterback much differently than he did in his NFL debut Sunday, when the former Florida star was on the field for just three snaps in Denver's 24-17 loss. The college football icon, who grew up in Jacksonville, entered on the third play and gained a yard on a quarterback keeper on 1st-and-10, something he'd do again in the second quarter after lining up once at wide receiver. Even when Tebow did go in, starting quarterback Kyle Orton stayed on the field and called the plays that he received in his headset, and McDaniels said he'd like to keep it that way. "I don't think I have any desire to do that with Kyle coming off the field, coming on the field, coming off," McDaniels said. "I don't think that's really something that we're looking to do much of. Like I said yesterday after the game, I think our quarterback played pretty well. I think he will play well. (I have) great confidence in his ability to execute what we're doing. And so we'd have to have something that would force us to make a decision like that and feel really good about it." Orton was masterful Sunday until the fourth quarter, when he threw a fourth-down pass that Brandon Lloyd couldn't quite come down with in the end zone and then got picked off on his final drive in the closing seconds. McDaniels said he would have used Tebow more had his carries been more productive. "It was just a portion of the game plan that we wanted to go ahead and put in there. If it gave us some benefits, great. We threw a pass or two out of it, completed them. A couple of runs, didn't do much with those," McDaniels said. Curious?
