Charities suffer in poor economy


By MINA RADMAN
Alligator Contributing Writer

In spite of the recession, Gainesville
charities remain confident the upcoming
fundraising season will be strong.
Local chapters of numerous national
charities, including the United Way of
North Central Florida and the Ronald Mc-
Donald House of Gainesville, have been
finding new ways to remain active in the
community, despite a decline in dona-
tions.
"Things are down, but not as much as
the recession proves it should be," said
Deborah Horvath, executive director of
the Ronald McDonald House. "We're still
paying our bills, so I think things will be
okay."
Nationally, charities have experienced
steep declines. The Philanthropy 400 re-
port released Monday shows donations
to the nation's 400 biggest charities have


decreased by 11 percent in the past year,
the worst decline in 20 years.
However, a few national charities con-
tinue to bring in large donations, including
United Way and Habitat for Humanity.
"From all the early results
we're seeing right now, we see
that the community is very
supportive and generous in
spite of the economic times."
Mindy Underberger
United Way

The United Way of North Central
Florida, based in Gainesville, brought in
$8.5 million this past year through a com-
bination of volunteer work, donations of
food and books and federal programs and
grants.
"For areas with sizes similar to ours,


we're second in the : .ii . " said Mindy
Underberger, vice-president for market-
ing and communications at the United
Way.
The fundraising season begins with the
onset of the holiday season. Local chari-
ties have begun looking at new outlets to
spread the word about helping the com-
munity. The Salvation Army has signed
an agreement to receive donations by text
message, while the Ronald McDonald
House of Gainesville recently created a Fa-
cebook page to promote upcoming events.
According to Horvath, these actions alone
do not necessarily lead to donations.
However, for United Way, this season
already appears to be a good one.
"From all the early results we're seeing
right now, we see that the community is
very supportive and generous in spite of
the economic times," Underberger said.
"We will be able to continue our support
to the community."


48.5- inch Nevada cat breaks record for longest domestic cat


RENO, Nev. (AP) - A Reno cat has bro-
ken the Guinness record for world's longest
domestic cat.
The Reno Gazette-Journal reported that
a 5-year-old Maine Coon named Stewie
measured 48 1/2 inches from the tip of his
nose to the tip of his tail bone. Robin Hen-
drickson and Erik Brandsness purchased
the cat from a breeder in Hermiston, Ore.,
in 2005.
The previous record holder was another


Maine Coon that measured 48 inches. It was
owned by Frieda Ireland of Chicago.
Hendrickson said Maine Coons are one
of the oldest natural breeds of cats and are
known for their mellow, relaxed tempera-
ments. She says they're known as "the gen-
tle giants" of the cat world.
Hendrickson said she and Brandsness
decided to try for the record after hearing
countless people said they were amazed by
Stewie's length.

Ticket sales



crawl for



UF-Georgia

* THE PAST TWO YEARS, TICKETS RAN
OUT WITHIN ABOUT 10 MINUTES.

By THOMAS MORRELL
Alligator Contributing Writer

Students did not have to scramble to purchase
their tickets to the Florida-Georgia -.- .rl: :II game
this year.
According to ticket sales officials, tickets to the
game usually sell out within minutes of going on
sale. This year, however, tickets were still for sale
hours after they became available.
Mark Gajda, the assistant athletics director
for ticket operations, said tickets for the Florida-
Georgia game sold much slower this year than in
previous years.
"For 2008 and 2009 ticket sales went very quick,
it was probably 10 minutes for the completion of
the sale," he said Tuesday. "This year it went to
midnight and didn't even sell out until this morn-
ing."
Senior John Tracy said he didn't want to spend
the money on a ticket and go all the way to Jack-
sonville to watch the Gators lose another game.
But buying a ticket to the game was nearly im-
possible last year, Tracy said.
Student He said he got home from work last
Life year at exactly 6:09 p.m. and logged
online to purchase his Georgia tickets
at 6:12 p.m. Ticket sales were open at 6 p.m., but
the tickets were already sold out by the time he
logged into the student lottery system.
"I was running a little late, but never thought I
wouldn't be able to get a ticket," said Tracy. "In my
mind there was no way that everyone was waiting
at their computer for 6 p.m. to come."
Tracy said that even though he didn't get a
ticket online, he still went to the game. All of his
friends were going and he knew it was a big game
for UF.
Ted Spiker, professor of the Sports and Media
Society class at UF, said there are other reasons
besides the three losses for why ticket sales have
been down this year.
"This program has extremely high expectations,
so when you don't meet these expectations, then
you're going to see some sales suffer," Spiker said.
"You're not winning. You're not getting as much
attention. You're not getting as much interest."

Friends of


Buchholz grad


hope rapper


will give nod
By RACHAEL PINO
Alligator Writer
Friends of a Buchholz High School graduate
who passed away are tweeting to remember.
Anthony Taylor Minzie, 19, died early Saturday
morning in his hometown of Gainesville, but his
friends are using the social media tool to help his
memory live on.
Minzie, who went by the nickname "Tizzy," was
a Taylor, the name given to fans of rap artist Wiz
Khalifa, and he had VIP tickets for one of his con-
certs.
As a freshman at Florida State University, Min-
zie had planned to go to the artist's show on Nov.
3 in Tallahassee.
His friends have been . J :._ 'r.-.1,1 tweeting mes-
sages to Khalifa, hoping that the
rapper will agree to give a shout-
out to Minzie during the concert.
"It would be awesome if Wiz
Khalifa could just give him a
shout out for like two seconds,"
said Santa Fe College student
Minzie Brittney Kelly, who met Minzie
over the summer.
The two are "married" on Facebook, and she
said that he was known for his positive outlook on
life.
"I've literally never heard anything bad talked
about him. Everyone loved him," Kelly said.
She said that by Tuesday friends had sent more
than 1,000 tweets to the artist.
Most of the tweets are variations of this: "Give
Tizzy a shout-out @ tally, FL show. He repped tay-
lor gang & passed away the 16th. It would mean
the world."
In addition to Twitter, some have chosen to get
permanent reminders of Minzie by getting tattoos
of his life motto, "Living the dream."

Deli owner fights tough times, remains optimistic


The 43rd Street Deli has been in business for 25 years


By JON SILMAN
Alligator Staff Writer

Behind an unlit neon sign on 43rd Street,
there's a 25-year-old Gainesville institution.
Paul Cakmis owns the place. He's 61, round
like Santa Claus but without the beard. When
things were good - before the crash, the lay-
offs and the lists - the Gator L -. ,ri: -1I team
would come and eat at the 43rd Street Deli.
When he was the king, and he sold one
of his restaurants for an obscene amount of
money, he had enough to put away to give his
family a good life. Things were easy.
But that nest egg he worked so hard to nur-
ture is running out. And not enough money is
coming in.
"When you're successful you take it for
granted," he said. "When the shit hits the fan
it's a whole different operation."
Cakmis' Greek immigrant parents were
both restaurateurs, a word he uses with pride.
One time his dad, a handshake man, bought
him a black Schwinn Jaguar bike, then gave
it to an orphanage because he didn't keep up
with chores.
According to Cakmis, at one point his
parents owned 30 different restaurants. They
worked hard, long hours. His said his dad
died from the stress, and his mom was stuck
with the responsibility of the restaurants. The
restaurants went like a "fire sale," he said.
He grew up, got married and then di-


forced.
In 1983 he opened his first restaurant in
downtown Gainesville. He was 35, and he
learned what it took to run a business. How
to treat customers. How to cook. At times
he was a janitor and a maintenance man,
but he was a restaurateur just like his dad.
In 1986 he moved to his flagship location on
43rd Street. He remarried and continued work-
ing. His wife worked, too, while pregnant.
He had a philosophy about give-and-take
with his customers.
"People want to feel important when they
come into a restaurant," he said. "And you
want to make them feel good, because without
them you're nothing."
His business grew, as good ones do,
steadily over the years. But he couldn't
forget about his dad and all those res-
taurants in Ohio. He wanted more.
After 10 years, he opened a restaurant on 13th
Street. The students found him, the money
found him, and Tim Tebow and the Gators
found him, too.
He would set up a breakfast buffet
and close off the back of the restaurant
for the -...rl::Ill team. He loved that Ur-
ban Meyer, and before him, Steve Spur-
rier, were spending their money locally.
Four years later he opened a third location at
Williston Road and 1-75.
"That'll be a little goldmine in a few years."
Cakmis was the breakfast king. Three restau-


rants. A nice house for his wife and kids and
some nice cars. But three places meant triple the
problems and a strain on the marriage. He went
through a few managers because he kept catch-
ing them stealing. His health started to flicker.
In 2008, CVS wanted his real estate, and of-
fered him buckets of money, so he sold.

"You could just tell people were
tightening up with their money."
Paul Cakmis
Owner, 43rd Street Deli

After all, hadn't he been working
hard all this time? Didn't he deserve to
put a little away for his wife and kids?
He did well from the sale and didn't notice at
first when monthly profits started to drop.
One less restaurant meant fewer custom-
ers. Die-hards who came in four times a week
only came once. Fewer students. Something
was in the air.
"You could just tell people were tightening
up with their money," he said. "You could just
sense it."
Deliveries got more expensive. Food
prices started to spike. Then they soared.
A gas surcharge and an insurance hike hit,
while his income dropped by a third. The banks
started having trouble and wouldn't lend
money anymore. He lost his left eye to a virus.
Now he was living off the sale because no


checks were coming in. His marriage was
dissolving. He was drinking too much
for a man his age. He had a heart attack.
He didn't want all those years of hard work
to go to waste. He wanted to retire one day.
He wanted to leave some money for his kids
when he died. He had to cut his best em-
ployees' hours. He had to lay some off. They
trusted him, and he let them down. He felt the
weight of the families who depended on him.
He developed ulcers that burst in his belly.
He had to compete with the dollar menu and
the five-dollar footlong.
He couldn't sleep, so he started making lists.
How much bacon did he need? How much
cheddar? What could he afford? Who did he
owe money to? He'd call and ask for more time.
His is not the only business suffering. After 82
years in Gainesville, Louis' Lunch will close
later this month. The owner has blamed the
recession and nearby road construction.
Similar construction on 43rd Street has dam-
aged Cakmis' already fragile business, he said.
Cakmis believes that people in Gainesville
should spend their money here, in town.
He's not a corporation. He needs help.
Today, he's thankful for what he has: his wife,
kids and 0, .1i,-,l .j. He's even optimistic.
He believes it's going to get better, but in
the meantime, he's going to deal with it the
only way he knows how.
"I'm gonna wake up every day and come
to work and bust my can."
That's how his dad did it, and that's how
he's going to do it. There's no time to feel sorry
for himself. He has restaurants to run.


Students discuss culture at 'Politics of Silence' event


* THEY WATCHED VIDEOS
ON RECENT GAY SUICIDES.

By SAMANTHA LIEBHABER
Alligator Contributing Writer

About 50 students gathered
in Orange and Brew on Tuesday
night for guided discussions on
culture in politics, in a open fo-
rum titled "Politics of Silence."
Student Government spon-
sored the forum, which cost about
$200 to host.
Participants were shown vid-
eos related to the recent suicides
of homosexual students who
were struggling with discrimina-
tion. They also discussed race re-
lations in politics and the planned
constructions of an Islamic center
near Ground Zero in New York
City.
Students were then asked to
discuss their feelings about the
issues and how they thought the
issues relate to UF.
Nirav N. Patel, a philosophy
and geography junior, stood up


and elaborated on the need for UF
cultural organizations to interact
more.
"I feel like we're still segregat-
ed here," he said. "It sucks being
in an old southern school."
According to Romilda Justilien,
director of multicultural affairs for
SG, the purpose of the event was
to advance social justice and raise
awareness of other cultures.
The aim is to make just one
person more socially conscious
so that he or she can promote it to
friends and family, she said.
"I think that we got some re-
ally great ideas that we want to
implement," Justilien said.
Ching-Ya Ni, a Chinese and
political science junior, said she
came to the event to hear the po-
litical opinions of students outside
of class.
She said the event provided a
good outlet for addressing multi-
culturalism, but that it could have
had more diversity.
"I just wish there were more
people so it could have been a bet-
ter discussion," she said.


Junior Nirav N. Patel speaks about segregation in Greek affairs and cultural organizations on campus at
"The Politics of Silence" talk hosted by Student Government at Orange and Brew Tuesday night.

Catalan singer plays 'politically rebellious' music for 75


By CRISTINA RABAZA
Alligator Contributing Writer

Catalan singer-songwriter Pau Alabajos performed for
more than 75 people at the Thomas Center Tuesday night
in celebration of Catalan culture and its constrained music
scene.
The department of Spanish and Portuguese Studies
broughtAlabajos and actress Susanna Sebastia to Gainesville,
as they are on their American tour.
Accompanied by Sebasti, Alabajos shared music from
the "Nova Cang6," a politically :.-1:.II ...... genre of music
which arose during the 1960s and 1970s in Catalonia, a tern-


tory belonging to Spain that struggles with its independent
identity and its desire to be its own country.
"You couldn't give an explicit mes-
sage about what you thought politically in
those times," Alabajos said, "so people did
it through music."
Although censorship reached its
heights during Spain's Franco era, Ala-
bajos said playing music on the streets of
Valencia will still land you a $500 fine and
Alabajos the confiscation of your instrument today.
Alabajos said the city now bans the music
as a misguided means of protecting its reputation, but he


still plays to "catch the feeling" of the oppression the "Nova
Cano6" musicians felt during Franco's reign.
"The image the government is trying to maintain is this
very modern, conservative kind of image," he said. "It
doesn't really work, though."
Alabajos said the artistic expression of Catalan culture is
more celebrated beyond its borders than within. Even UF's
Catalan program, with only 12 students enrolled 1 in classes
this fall, is a refreshing dose of enthusiasm about his and
Sebasti's little-discussed culture.
"There's really no space for musical expression in our
.:. ..i,.h " he said. "There's this general censorship for those
against the government. It's a form of discrimination."

Clinton campaign for Meek in Fla.

Meek, left, hugs former President Bill Clinton.


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
ST. PETERSBURG -Democratic Rep.
Kendrick Meek brought former President
Bill Clinton to town Tuesday to try to
whip up some homestretch enthusiasm
for his struggling U.S. Senate campaign.
The former president, still hugely
popular among party members, told a
crowd of more than 1,000 on the campus
of the University of South Florida on St.
Petersburg that Meek and other Demo-
crats in Congress should be given more
of a chance to clean up the mess made by
the last Republican administration.
Republican leadership left the coun-
try's economy in a hole, Clinton said, and
they are now quick to criticize President
Barack Obama and Democrats for not be-
ing able to climb out of it yet.
"You're right, we didn't get out of this
hole," Clinton said. "It was a very deep
hole. But at least we stopped digging."
He urged the college students in the
crowd at the campus activities center to
get out the vote for Meek. He warned
that if Republicans regain control of Con-
gress, they will take steps to make it more
difficult to get and repay student loans.


"Don't you listen to this tea party talk
about how (Republicans) are on your
side," said Clinton, who campaigned last
week at another Southern college, the
University of Mississippi.
Clinton said he felt so strongly about
helping Meek prevail that he flew across
the country after Monday campaign stops
out West, arriving in Florida at 4 a.m.
"I will continue to work, I'll
continue to fight for you, and
I'll continue to give you a voice
in the process."
Kendrick Meek
Democratic Representative

Meek is in need of the help. Two
weeks before the election, polls show the
four-term South Florida congressman
well behind Republican Marco Rubio
and Gov. Charlie Crist, who is running as
an independent.
Some Democrats have suggested
Meek drop out of the race to give Crist a
chance to beat the more conservative Ru-
bio, but Meek has refused. He noted that
he withstood a barrage of attack ads and


rallied to beat self-financed billionaire Jeff
Greene in the Democratic primary.
"I will continue to work, I'll continue
to fight for you, and I'll continue to give
you a voice in the process," Meek told the
crowd hours before he was scheduled to
participate in another debate with Ru-
bio and Crist on statewide TV Tuesday
night.
Clinton said Meek should be elected
to help keep Obama's health care reform
law intact and keep Congress from priva-
tizing Medicare. And Meek, he said, is
the only one of the three candidates who
has already worked in Congress to keep
the country secure.
Clinton said his administration
proved that Democratic principles are
more effective.
"We've tested these ideas, theirs and
ours, and ours worked better," he said.
Before Clinton spoke, U.S. Sen. Bill
Nelson told the crowd he needed Meek
in Washington to help him keep gas and
oil drilling rigs far away from Florida
beaches.
Clinton is scheduled to appear with
Meek at a rally Wednesday at the Univer-
sity of Central Florida in Orlando.

Editorial

Justice for some

Administration not

exempt from obeying law
We're proud of our justice system in this country. We
don't imprison Nobel Peace Prize winners like Chi-
na does, unless you count that whole Martin Luther
King Jr. situation when we threw the book at him for being
black.
And we spit on the ground near any country that doesn't
follow our coveted "innocent until proven guilty" judicial
mantra.
Except if you're Muslim, brown-skinned or remotely look
like you might be from any of those -stan countries. No, then
you're a terrorist, and we need to shackle you up.
The American Civil Liberties Union will certainly be de-
lighted as the Supreme Court agreed Monday to intervene in
a case dealing with the issue of falsely labeling someone who
looks Middle Eastern as a terrorist as the civil rights organi-
zation keeps trying to sue members of the Bush Administra-
tion for abusing the law.
Saying former Attorney General John Ashcroft used a
"gross abuse" of his authority as the nation's top attorney
by arresting and shackling Muslim-looking assumed terror-
ists in airports and around town, particularly Lavoni Kidd in
2005, the ACLU wants Ashcroft to be held accountable for his
S... -i 11, incompetent misuse of the law to arrest Americans
without any probable cause.
But apparently to some people, having brown skin is
enough probable cause.
The fact of the matter is the Bush Administration, par-
ticularly Ashcroft, abused the laws intended to protect our
citizens.
It's time to face the fire. The people in charge of falsely
labeling Middle Easterners as terrorists need to be held ac-
countable for using race as probable cause.


Mad as a Hatter


If the Tea Party gets any
more laughs, or gets any
crazier, we're going to
have to start wondering if
it's Kool-Aid in their cups
rather than chain.
In a double dose of fun-
for-everyone laughter, two
prominent Tea Party candi-
dates made social blunders
that make us wonder how
anyone could want these
lovely ladies to run our
country.
Cl'.ill_. I'iii', current Sen-
ate Majority Leader Harry
Reid, U.S. Senate candidate
Sharron Angle said to a
group of Hispanic students
they looked "a little more
Asian."
While we've never had
the unfortunate circum-
stance of mistaking an Asian
student for Hispanic, we're
even more astounded Angle
thought this would be an
appropriate thing to say to
a group of Hispanic voters


in the state she's hoping to
capture.
And across the country
in Delaware, our darling Tea
Partier Christine O'Donnell
asked a group of law stu-
dents where in the Constitu-
tion is any mention of that
whole church-and-state-sep-
aration thing.
More confused than
Angle when she walks into
Panda Express, O'Donnell
had no choice but to smile in
fear behind her water glass
as the crowd of law students
erupted in laughter.
As they should have.
It's ridiculous to suggest a
major candidate, who is also
seeking to claim the seat our
current vice president once
held, can serve effectively
without having a most-basic
knowledge of our governing
document.
What you learned at Hog-
warts won't save you here,
Christine.

The day the (Rock 104) music died


eb. 3, 1959. July 12, 1979. And now, Oct. 15, 2010.
What do all three of these dates have in common?
They're all considered days when the music died.
Feb. 3 will be forever immortalized in Don McLean's
"American Pie," memorializing the plane crash that
killed Buddy Holly, Richie Valens and the Big Bopper.
July 12 was Disco Demolition Night - a promotion at
a Chicago White Sox game gone wrong that resulted
in a near riot against disco. Oct. 15? Rock 104 signs off
for the last time, and 103.7 The Gator signs on air with
country music for Gainesville.
I'm not a person who considers himself a music snob
or a rock exclusivist; I legitimately listen to everything.
Yes, that includes country.
But it's a matter of checks and balances, and the
death of Rock 104 significantly upsets the balance of the
Gainesville music scene.
There are now at least six country music radio sta-
tions that can be received in Gainesville, four being
larger stations.
When it comes to the modern rock that Rock 104
broadcasted? Just one. There are more stations in the
Gainesville/Ocala metropolitan market that broadcast
Christian contemporary music than modern alternative
rock 'n' roll. That's just not right.
But wait a second, according to the powers that be,
Rock 104 isn't dead! It's just available online now. It's
time to send a message to companies that continue to
move stations online and pretend they still exist. Grant-
ed, something's better than nothing.
But until I can receive Internet radio or HD radio eas-
ily and affordably in my car, where radio still reigns su-
preme, although CD players and iPod docks are creep-


L i ing up to kill it completely, Rock
104 is dead to me.
Furthermore, the actual signing
off of Rock 104 isn't the worst part.
The format change leads to less
diversity in the Gainesville radio
Sean Quinn spectrum, making the metropoli-
letters@alligator.org tan area less attractive to students
who aren't from the North Florida
area, and aren't getting to listen to Jimmy Eat World,
Papa Roach or The Black Keys they're used to listening
to back home.
Of course there's no way to cater to every student's
interest. It's safe to say we won't see a dedicated world
music station any time soon.
However, 103.7 FM is registered to UF, and it should
be in the best interest of the university to represent its
student body as best possible.
Rock 104 was an enterprise that catered to, and was
often run by, students. In contrast, 103.7 The Gator
seems to be catering toward the local community.
The ideal scenario for a university-operated radio
station should be to provide quality content for its stu-
dents, faculty and staff while also providing a public
service to the local community.
By becoming the eighth country music station in the
area, reducing the diversity in the Gainesville/Ocala ra-
dio market and by eliminating one of the two modern
alternative rock stations, UF is doing just the opposite
of that.
Don McLean would agree.

Letter to the Editor
A serious need for America
It's been a long and crazy road to these
midterm elections with lots of rhetoric and lots
of ridiculous commercials. However, now it's
time to have a moment of seriousness before
we go to the polls in less than two weeks.
Speaking of seriousness, this is the one
quality the Tea Party and the GOP notably
lacks at the moment. For many reasons, we in
this country have gotten ourselves into some
serious problems, including dependence on
foreign oil, dangerous trade imbalances and
an inability to meet our financial obligations
such as social security and Medicare.


Despite what you hear on TV, these prob-
lems did not become problems in January
2009. We have been moving in this direction
for a few decades.
The Tea Party and many GOP candidates
seem to think "I don't like taxes" and "I don't
like bailouts" are real campaign platforms -
they're not, by the way. Do some research and
see if you can find a single, reputable econo-
mist who thinks the bailout was unnecessary.
Do some research and find out taxes have
decreased for 95 percent of Americans since
Obama took office. A recent New York Times
poll showed 90 percent of Americans have no


idea their taxes were cut.
We need people in government who are go-
ing to make tough situations in the face of very
tough circumstances. Listening to Republican
commercials, you would think the only issue
this country is facing is big government.
This is the same government Obama inher-
ited from Bush. It has an executive, legislative
and judicial branch. It is responsible for many
tasks and those tasks are funded by taxes. The
only thing that has changed is GOP strategists
have figured out talking about "small gov-
ernment" gets certain voters as excited as a
13-year-old girl at a Justin Bieber concert.


So when you go to the polls, and you're all
angry about health care, bailouts and taxes,
remember all responsible economists agreed
health care needed swift and aggressive re-
form to avoid a financially unsustainable situ-
ation. Remember the bailouts, while painful,
were not only the brainchild of Bush, but were
extraordinarily necessary. Remember your
taxes and taxes for small businesses have de-
creased. Make an informed choice. Don't get
excited about hollow and absurd campaign
slogans. Vote for serious people.

Guest column

Public education mars America's des


If you've done as much study of the Founding Fathers as I
have, one fact starts to stick out time and again: none was
the product of public education. That's right, the greatest
men of American history were all schooled either in the rooms
of a private institution or by the best teacher in the world: real
life.
Had they known in a couple centuries the hopes for rep-
resentative government rested on the votes of brainwashed
drones, educated by the state on the high value of Rooseveltism,
laziness and sexual deviancy, would they have proceeded how
they did?
In the always witty words of Thomas Jefferson, "Not on the
life of a poore cooper's wife."
Don't believe me? Just take a look at the curricula forced
upon schools by the Florida Department of Education. Civics
classes don't require a single mention of Ronald Reagan, Her-
bert Hoover or John Tyler, rated by scholars as the three best
presidents in history. Inconveniently for the state, they just hap-
pen to be the president who pushed to dismantle the Depart-
ment of Education, the president who was solving the Great
Depression the market-based way only to have FDR plunge
us back into record unemployment and the president who ac-
cepted Texas into the union. I wonder why the Department of
Education passes them over.


Brian Amos Instead, requirements include entries
Speaking Out like "Socialism - discuss benefits and
shortcomings." Shortcomings? I'm not
sure the people of Soviet Russia would
have used that weak of a word, although they would probably
admit that they were "coming up short" on essentials like food
and televisions.
It's not just the explicit curriculum; it's also what they're
implicitly teaching us. It's clear, to :ir.. I Io._,r people at least,
having free education breeds dependence on the government.
Every time a cut in Bright Futures is discussed, students whine
in a collective fear of less beer money and (gasp!) a summer
job. Contrast that with Constitution signer Nicholas Gilman,
who, from age seven, worked on his father's farm eight months
a year and had to work in the school's kitchen to pay for his
four months of tuition the rest of the year. And although his IQ
tested at 165 as an adult, this was only average for the raised-
on-work Founding Fathers.
It's no wonder George W. Bush preferred hiring from
schools like Patrick Henry College for his administration. Not
only are the students learning in a government-free, Christian
environment, as the Founding Fathers did, but 85 percent of
the student body was homeschooled for K-12. They are hard
working, moral, honest and won't be able to tell you one good


ire for greatness
thing about socialism. It is from schools like these we will see
another George Washington - not the government-doled
Harvard or Yale.
The good news is the 2010 elections are shaping up to put
Republicans back in charge of the Senate and the House.
We've fallen into dead last in education as a recent study
showed the majority of eighth graders in this country couldn't
find the United States on a map.
In even better news, future-Speaker Boehner has hinted at
plans to overhaul the school system in innovative ways. No
more federal scholarships. No more biased accreditation sys-
tem. Strings attached to federal block grants will require cuts to
local school funding. While Obama is sure to veto it (so much
for change), when 2012 rolls around with Republican President
Haley Barbour, we'll be on the start of a path to fix education.
And it couldn't come soon enough. We're so dishonoring
the Founding Fathers, I suggest a radical move: exhume all the
signers of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitu-
tion, attach magnets to their incorrupted bodies, wrap their
coffins in wire and re-enter them. The power generated by the
spinning in their graves over education will be enough for the
country to become i,.- _ independent. But that's another col-
umn.

Senators oppose block tuition
0 THE RESOLUTION PASSED
UNANIMOUSLY.

The Student Senate approved a
resolution in opposition of block tu-
ition at a meeting Tuesday night.
Block tuition would change UF
tuition from a per-credit-hour fee
system to a flat-fee tuition, based
off of the cost of 15 credit hours.
According to the resolution, the
Senate opposes block tuition be-
cause there are students who take
fewer than 15 credit hours because
they have other obligations, such as
work, extracurricular activities or
family obligations.
The resolution stated that these
activities are es-
Student sential to prepare
Government students for efe

block tuition could mean students
would have less time for these ac-
tivities.

Va. man to admit


to helping Somali


terrorist group


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

ALEXANDRIA, Va.-A north-
ern Virginia man who warned the
creators of the animated TV show
"South Park" that they risked
death for mocking the prophet
Muhammad is scheduled to plead
guilty to supporting an al-Qaida
linked terrorist group, according
to court records.
Zachary Chesser of Bris-
tow, Va., a 20-year-old dropout
from George Mason University,
is scheduled for a plea hearing
Wednesday in federal court in Al-
exandria, Va., court records show.
He is charged with providing ma-
terial support to a terrorist group,
communicating threats and solic-
iting crimes of violence.
According to a court affidavit,
Chesser tried to join the al-Shabab
terror group in Somalia earlier this
year and posted online propagan-
da for them. Chesser also alleg-


edly took his infant son with him
to the airport to make his travel
appear more innocuous.
Both the U.S. Attorney's Of-
fice in Alexandria and Chesser's
.rr .., ... federal public defender
Michael Nachmanoff, declined
comment Tuesday.
Before Chesser's arrest in July
on the terror
charges, he was
best known
for posting a
harshly worded
attack on the
creators of the
"South Park"
Chesser cartoon for
their perceived
mockery of the prophet Muham-
mad.
Prosecutors say that Chesser
tried twice in the last year to travel
to Somalia and join al-Shabab as
a foreign fighter. The most recent
attempt came July 10.

Islamic militants raid Chechen parliament, 6 people dead


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

GROZNY, Russia - Islamic
insurgents attacked Chechnya's
parliament Tuesday in a brazen
suicide raid that left six people
dead and 17 wounded, defying
Kremlin claims of stability in the
volatile southern region.
In a clear challenge to Moscow,
the raid occurred just as Russia's
interior minister was visiting the
provincial capital of Grozny.
The three attackers drove to the
tightly guarded parliament com-
plex and got inside. One militant
blew himself up at the doors and
another two ran into the building
shouting "Allahu akbarl" - "God
is great!" in Arabic - as they
opened fire on the people inside,
said Chechen police spokesman
Ramzan Bekkhoyev.
The regional chief prosecutor's
office said the remaining two at-
tackers also blew themselves up
after exchanging fire with police,
while other officials said they were
killed in a gunbattle. Two police
officers and a civilian government
employee were killed in the raid
and 17 others were wounded,
prosecutors said.
Bloodstains, body parts and a
decapitated corpse were still scat-
tered outside the building hours
after the attack as police and spe-
cial forces backed by armored ve-
hicles patrolled the area.
An Associated Press reporter
at the parliament saw ambulances


take away two bodies, along with
the severed head of a militant.
Chechnya's Moscow-backed
regional president, Ramzan
Kadyrov, sought to play down the
attack, saying the assailants were
killed quickly.
His office said Russian Prime
Minister Vladimir Putin and Pres-


ident Dmitry Medvedev called
him to offer assistance. Medvedev,
on a visit to France, was briefed
about the attack by Russian secu-
rity officials.
In Washington, the U.S. offered
condolences to the families of the
dead and wounded.
"We also express our solidarity


with Russia in the struggle against
terrorism. We're concerned about
continued violence in Russia's
North Caucasus, which contrib-
utes to instability and personal in-
security in the region," said State
Department spokesman Mark
Toner. "Several independent non-
governmental reports confirm that


Special Force (OMON) officers are seen at the scene after a bomb blast, with human body parts in front
of Chechen parliament complex in Grozny, Chechnya, southern Russia on Tuesday.


the level of violence has increased
in 2010 in several North Caucasus
regions, and we've bee'i ii.11. ',"
these events closely."
Kadyrov and Russia's Inte-
rior Minister Rashid Nurgaliyev
attended a parliament session
shortly after the raid. Nurgaliyev
said the insurgents had tried to
get into the main parliamentary
chamber.
"As always, they failed. Un-
fortunately, we were not able to
avoid loss of life," Nurgaliyev
said. "The situation we saw today
is extremely rare. Here, there is
stability and security."
Kadyrov, a former rebel, has
recruited many ex-militants into
his feared security forces. The
:.vIll,._-.:l ...j 34-year-old former
militia chief also sought to blunt
the rebels' appeal with a massive
construction boom in Chechnya
and a campaign to impose strict
Islamic values.
The ITAR-Tass news agency
cited Chechnya's Interior Min-
istry branch as saying that the
attack had been planned by war-
lord Khusein Gakayev who had
broken loose from the main rebel
commander, Doku Umarov. It
said Gakayev launched the attack
to try to raise his profile.
Human rights activists have
accused security forces and para-
military units under Kadyrov's
command of extra-judicial kill-
ings, kidnapping and torture of
rebel suspects and their relatives.

Pro-life group protests silently on Plaza of the Americas
By MEG WAGNER
Alligator Contributing Writer

Students have made their voices heard by staying si-
lent
About 25 members of UF's Pro-Life Alliance, their
mouths covered with red duct tape with the word "hlife"
written in black, took a daylong vow of silence Tuesday -
to remember the lives lost through abortion.
"We give up our voices for the day to symbohlize the .
4,000 babies that will be aborted today, who never even
got a chance to be heard," said Brianne Umhoefer, vice
president of the UF Pro-Life Alliance.
The protest is part of the seventh annual Day of Silent
Sohlidarity, a national event organized by Stand True Min-
istries min Ohio that asks pro-hlife supporters to take a vow
of silence for the day.
The members who chose to remain silent did so for
the entire day, sporting the red duct tape to class. They
allowed themselves to speak only when "vi-
Student tally rs..: ..o.. "i Umhoefer said.
Life "It's knd of ronic when you really think
about it," said Mary Catherine Damon, UF
Pro-Life Alhliance secretary. "We're completely silent, but
we get more attention doing this than we would if we
were yelling and screaming.
Pro-Life Alhliance President Sharon Parker said the
event draws mixed reactions. She said last year some stu-
dents joined min even though they were not affihated with
the group. But the group also gets negative reactions.
"Each year we get a few really aggressive people that
just want to argue," she said. "They just get really an-
gry."
Parker said most people who disagree with the group
are pretty respectful, though.
Senior linguistics major Cary Marcous said she's been
offended by other pro-hlife protests, but she finds the Day
of Silent Sohlidarity a nice alternative to more abrasive

MEN'S BASKETBALL

UF optimistic about PG depth


By GREG LUCA
Alligator Writer
gluca@alligator org

After entering last season with serious
questions about the point guard position,
coach Billy Donovan believes he has four vi-
able answers to start the new year.
With Erving Walker returning for his ju-
nior year, Chandler Parsons and Kenny Boyn-
ton developing their point guard skills and
Scottie Wilbekin making the jump from high
school, the Gators have plenty of options at
the one spot.
"We feel like, outside of Erving, we have
some other options we can use if Erving is
maybe getting taken out of the game, or we
need to try to free him up to shoot the ball a
little bit more," Donovan said.
Last season Walker started 33 of the team's
34 games, averaging a team-high 4.9 assists
per game and establishing a 2-1 assist-to-
turnover ratio.
But, as the season wore on, teams started
to put more pressure on Walker in the back-
court. This forced him to pass over defend-


ers, which proved to be a difficult task for the
Southeastern Conference's shortest player (5-
foot-8).
In response, the Gators would usually call
on 6-foot-10 forward Chandler Parsons to run
the point.
Parsons proved to be an effective option,
averaging 2.6 assists per game and posting a
1.3-1 assist to turnover ratio
for the season.
Throughout the offsea-
son Parsons has worked on
making those areas of his
game even stronger in an
attempt to become a more
Parsons complete player.
"I want to be able to do
everything," Parsons said. "I want to be able
to pass, shoot, score inside, score outside, de-
fend, play the four if I have to, play the point
if I have to. So this summer and last year I
just tried to become the most versatile player
I could."
Parsons has displayed this versatility in

Many things have changed
since Mary Wise became Florida's
coach in 1991.
While the basic objectives of
volleyball have remained the same,
how the team trains for a season
has become vastly different.
"When we first got here we
were doing a watered-down ver-
sion of what - ...rl: :I was doing,
and it wasn't sport specific," Wise
said. "Players would come in, do it
and get out. Now it's devised for
each individual athlete by posi-
tion."
The strength and condition-
ing program will come into play
tonight as the No. 1 Gators (16-1,
9-0 Southeastern Conference) take
on the No. 21 Volunteers (15-4, 7-3
SEC) in the O'Connell Center at 8
- just three days after defeating
Georgia on Sunday. The match will
be nationally televised on ESPNU.
It's not the ideal length of time
the team would like to prepare for
its second meeting with Tennessee
(UF won 3-1 (28-26, 25-23, 19-25,
25-17) on Sept. 19). But, physically,


Big plays biggest
Look at Florida's "Keys to Suc-
cess" chart, and you will only
see one assignment for the of-
fense: succeed in the red zone.
Of course, the chart as a whole
is an oversimplified way to explain
wins and losses. It only consists of
four keys.
But since Urban Meyer brought his
super spread option to Gainesville in
2005, the amount of points Florida's
offense posted has directly correlated
with the group's red-zone success. In
the Age of Urban, the offense's peak
seasons were 2007 and 2008, when
the Gators averaged 43.1 points per
game and scored on 89 percent of
red-zone possessions.
But in Meyer's other four seasons,
Florida has scored on just 75 percent
of trips inside the opponents' 20-yard
line, making this year's red-zone ef-
ficiency rate (73 percent) troubling


the Gators are ready.
"Strength training is a part of
athletics - for injury prevention,
for bettering performance," Wise
said. "We've been very fortunate
in terms of our health and it's all
related to the job [Matt DeLancey]
does."
DeLancey, who is in his seventh
season as the strength and condi-
tioning coordinator for the Gators,
designs a specific conditioning
program for each player. Each of
the players do single-leg jumps
ACL prevention, arm strength and
rotator cuff prevention to help pre-
vent injury and strengthen those
areas.
"Matt DeLancey is the most
high I _,.-, -' person I've ever met in
my life," libero Erin Fleming said.
"He's really enthusiastic about the
program; he's tough and never
gives us a break.
"We had a game Friday and
Sunday and now a quick turn-
around Wednesday against a re-
ally good Tennessee team. During
the summer, he prepared us for

the early stages of practice, spend-
ing time at point guard in addition
to his normal duties as a forward.
Even if Donovan opts to use Par-
sons only in the frontcourt, the se-
nior expects to show his full range
of abilities.
"In our offense if I get the re-
bound I'm gonna go with it, I'm
gonna push the ball," Parsons said.
"If I end up having the ball up there
during our half-court set, I can run it
comfortably."
Another player trying his hand
in the point guard role is sophomore
Kenny Boynton, who led the Gators
in scoring while starting in 33 games
last season primarily as a shooting
guard.
Boynton has spent a large por-
tion of the first few practices play-
ing point guard across from Walker
in Florida's intrasquad scrimmages,
and has found the adjustment to be
simpler than he anticipated.
"So far it's been a lot easier than


I thought, I feel very comfortable,"
Boynton said. "I think I've been
making good decisions at the point
guard position."
A fourth option the Gators have
is freshman Scottie Wilbekin, whose
toughness and stamina have im-
pressed Donovan so far.
"I think I've been making
good decisions at the point
guard position."

Donovan believes Wilbekin will
be able to produce off the bench in
his rookie season despite joining the
Gators after only three years of high
school at Gainesville The Rock.
"I really believe right now, after
two practices, just physically and
conditioning-wise that he is going
to be able to contribute to our team,"
Donovan said. "How many minutes
and how much I'm not sure, but I do
think that he's going to be a positive
piece for our team going forward."

points.
Big plays have made the biggest differ-
ence between the two groups. Florida aver-
aged almost 18 points outside the red zone
last year while this season's group is scoring
less than 10 per game, the worst rate since
Meyer became coach.
Translation: the Gators aren't explosive.
Jeff Demps' leg injury and Chris Rainey's
suspension have hampered the running
game. Through seven games last season, the
duo had each busted a pair of long touch-
down runs. This season, Demps has scored
on two big runs while Rainey has been side-
lined for buckwild texting.
But the difference in long runs negli-
gible. And, with scores coming from three
interception returns and one kickoff return,
Florida's defense and special teams are
pitching in more than they did last year.
This really leaves only one scapegoat:
the dump-n-run passing game. John Brant-
ley has only thrown one touchdown from
beyond the 20 - in the season opener on a
fourth-quarter Hail Mary to Rainey in dou-
ble coverage.


The play was so Les-Miles lucky that
Meyer looked on with disgust as his team
celebrated the score. But at least they could
celebrate then.
Through seven games last season, Tebow
awkwardly ,i-.j1-.ll...j1 the ball for seven
touchdowns longer than 20 yards.
But if Brantley is the culprit, he isn't per-
forming the unintentional heist solo. Sure,
Florida's passing offense is the SEC's fifth
worst (or eighth best, depending on your
outlook). But of Tebow's seven l,-i L ;,11
big-nuts touchdowns, only two were direct-
ed at receivers on this year's team.
Both of those went to Deonte Thompson.
And would you blame Brantley if he forgot
to look in Thompson's direction for the rest
of the season?
You can't defend Florida's red-zone
problems. But that's not the only area of
concern. The Gators have struggled inside
the 20 before and still scored in bunches.
The key for the Gators is to start finding
the end zone from far away, particularly
with the ball coming off Brantley's right
arm, because Florida has not outscored op-
ponents enough this season.
And that's the greatest "Key to Suc-
cess.

Fleming will be busy against the

The Gators will once again count

Four-star tight end Leonard recommits to Gators


He plans to enroll early at Florida in January


By TOM GREEN
Alligator Writer
tgreen@alligator org

Five days after decommitting from
Florida, A.C. Leonard made his college de-
cision late Monday.
And for the third time in less than a
year, the four-star Jacksonville University
Christian School tight end is a Gator.
But this time the nation's fourth-rated
tight end, according to Rivals.com, said
he's sticking with his choice.
"Lately people have been coming into
my life for the wrong reasons," Leonard
told Scout.com. "They have been giving
me bad advice, but now I have had time to
. sit down and think things
through. I am a Gator and
I am shutting the whole
Recruiting process down."
Leonard decommitted
from Florida last week in
the wake of UF's loss to LSU on Oct. 9 -
the team's second in a row.
The tight end attended the game and
rc t.. r.-.Jl1 left The Swamp disappointed
with the Gators' offense, saying the 33-29
loss was difficult to watch.
It wasn't the first time Leonard backed
off his oral commitment to the Gators,
though.
After initially deciding on UF last No-
vember, Leonard decommitted follow-
ing Urban Meyer's decision to step down


as head coach, only to recommit shortly
thereafter.
When Leonard reopened the recruiting
process last week, he was also consider-
ing offers from Nebraska, Alabama and
Miami. The tight end already took official
visits to Nebraska on Sept. 24 and to Ala-


bama on Oct. 1, and University Christian
School coach Heath Nivens said last week
that Leonard planned to take his remain-
ing three official visits, including one to
Miami.
But with the four-star prospect closing
the recruiting process and planning to en-


Tight end A.C. Leonard (left) said he is ending the recruiting process after recommit-
ting to Florida on Monday.


roll at UF in January, it is doubtful Leon-
ard will take the remaining visits.
While Leonard will probably be don-
ning a Florida jersey when spring practice
begins, it is uncertain if he will suit up
again this season for University Christian
School.
Reports surfaced Tuesday afternoon
that Leonard had been ruled ineligible
for the remainder of his senior season by
the FHSAA due to an on-field incident
that took place when University Christian
played Jacksonville Episcopal High on Fri-
day.
However, calls to Nivens and the FH-
SAA seeking confirmation were not re-
turned Tuesday.
Players unhappy?: According to a re-
port on the website MrSEC.com, Ellen-
wood (Ga.) Cedar Grove High athlete Vin-
cent Dallas, who took his official visit to
Florida for the LSU game, asked current
players on the UF roster if they were hap-
py with their decisions to become Gators.
Dallas, who committed to Tennessee on
Friday, rc j_'. r. .jIl said some of the players
weren't happy and didn't "think Florida is
the right place for them." The three-star
athlete refuted the report on his Facebook
page and said he wouldn't be giving any
interviews until January.
"To the Florida people that was not a
true statement about Florida," Dallas post-
ed on his Facebook. "I really really didn't
like how the reporter did me today."
Oral commitments are non-binding until a
national letter of intent is signed on or after
National Signing Day on Feb. 2.

LOCAL Charities suffer in poor economy By MINA RADMAN Alligator Contributing Writer In spite of the recession, Gainesville charities remain confident the upcoming fundraising season will be strong. Local chapters of numerous national charities, including the United Way of North Central Florida and the Ronald McDonald House of Gainesville, have been finding new ways to remain active in the community, despite a decline in donations. "Things are down, but not as much as the recession proves it should be," said Deborah Horvath, executive director of the Ronald McDonald House. "We're still paying our bills, so I think things will be okay." Nationally, charities have experienced steep declines. The Philanthropy 400 report released Monday shows donations to the nation's 400 biggest charities have decreased by 11 percent in the past year, the worst decline in 20 years. However, a few national charities continue to bring in large donations, including United Way and Habitat for Humanity. "From all the early results we're seeing right now, we see that the community is very supportive and generous in spite of the economic times." Mindy Underberger United Way The United Way of North Central Florida, based in Gainesville, brought in $8.5 million this past year through a combination of volunteer work, donations of food and books and federal programs and grants. "For areas with sizes similar to ours, we're second in the country," said Mindy Underberger, vice-president for marketing and communications at the United Way. The fundraising season begins with the onset of the holiday season. Local charities have begun looking at new outlets to spread the word about helping the community. The Salvation Army has signed an agreement to receive donations by text message, while the Ronald McDonald House of Gainesville recently created a Facebook page to promote upcoming events. According to Horvath, these actions alone do not necessarily lead to donations. However, for United Way, this season already appears to be a good one. "From all the early results we're seeing right now, we see that the community is very supportive and generous in spite of the economic times," Underberger said. "We will be able to continue our support to the community." 48.5inch Nevada cat breaks record for longest domestic cat RENO, Nev. (AP) -A Reno cat has broken the Guinness record for world's longest domestic cat. The Reno Gazette-Journal reported that a 5-year-old Maine Coon named Stewie measured 48 1/2 inches from the ip of his nose to the ip of his tail bone. Robin Hendrickson and Erik Brandsness purchased the cat from a breeder in Hermiston, Ore., in 2005. The previous record holder was another Maine Coon that measured 48 inches. It was owned by Frieda Ireland of Chicago. Hendrickson said Maine Coons are one of the oldest natural breeds of cats and are known for their mellow, relaxed temperaments. She says they're known as "the gentle giants" of the cat world. Hendrickson said she and Brandsness decided to try for the record after hearing countless people said they were amazed by Stewie's length.

By THOMAS MORRELL Alligator Contributing Writer Students did not have to scramble to purchase their tickets to the Florida-Georgia football game this year. According to ticket sales officials, tickets to the game usually sell out within minutes of going on sale. This year, however, tickets were still for sale hours after they became available. Mark Gajda, the assistant athletics director for ticket operations, said tickets for the FloridaGeorgia game sold much slower this year than in previous years. "For 2008 and 2009 ticket sales went very quick, it was probably 10 minutes for the completion of the sale," he said Tuesday. "This year it went to midnight and didn't even sell out until this morning." Senior John Tracy said he didn't want to spend the money on a ticket and go all the way to Jacksonville to watch the Gators lose another game. But buying a ticket to the game was nearly impossible last year, Tracy said. Student He said he got home from work last Life year at exactly 6:09 p.m. and logged online to purchase his Georgia tickets at 6:12 p.m. Ticket sales were open at 6 p.m., but the tickets were already sold out by the time he logged into the student lottery system. "I was running a little late, but never thought I wouldn't be able to get a ticket," said Tracy. "In my mind there was no way that everyone was waiting at their computer for 6 p.m. to come." Tracy said that even though he didn't get a ticket online, he still went to the game. All of his friends were going and he knew it was a big game for UF Ted Spiker, professor of the Sports and Media Society class at UF, said there are other reasons besides the three losses for why ticket sales have been down this year. "This program has extremely high expectations, so when you don't meet these expectations, then you're going to see some sales suffer," Spiker said. "You're not winning. You're not getting as much attention. You're not getting as much interest."

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 20, 2010 0 ALLIGATOR, 3 LOCAL Friends of Buchholz grad hope rapper will give nod By RACHAEL PINO Alligator Writer Friends of a Buchholz High School graduate who passed away are tweeting to remember. Anthony Taylor Minzie, 19, died early Saturday morning in his hometown of Gainesville, but his friends are using the social media tool to help his memory live on. Minzie, who went by the nickname "Tizzy," was a Taylor, the name given to fans of rap artist Wiz Khalifa, and he had VIP tickets for one of his concerts. As a freshman at Florida State University, Minzie had planned to go to the artist's show on Nov. 3 in Tallahassee. His friends have been repeatedly tweeting messages to Khalifa, hoping that the rapper will agree to give a shoutout to Minzie during the concert. "It would be awesome if Wiz Khalifa could just give him a shout out for like two seconds," said Santa Fe College student Minzie Brittney Kelly, who met Minzie over the summer. The two are "married" on Facebook, and she said that he was known for his positive outlook on life. "I've literally never heard anything bad talked about him. Everyone loved him," Kelly said. She said that by Tuesday friends had sent more than 1,000 tweets to the artist. Most of the tweets are variations of this: "Give Tizzy a shout-out @ tally, FL show. He repped taylor gang & passed away the 16th. It would mean the world." In addition to Twitter, some have chosen to get permanent reminders of Minzie by getting tattoos of his life motto, "Living the dream."

4, ALLIGATOR U WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 20, 2010 Deli owner fights tough times, remains optimistic The 43rd Street Deli has been in business for 25 years By JON SILMAN Alligator Staff Writer Behind an unit neon sign on 43rd Street, there's a 25-year-old Gainesville inslitulion. Paul Cakmis owns the place. He's 61, round like Santa Claus but without the beard. When things were good -before the crash, the layoffs and the lists -the Gator football team would come and eat at the 43rd Street Deli. When he was the king, and he sold one of his restaurants for an obscene amount of money, he had enough to put away to give his family a good life. Things were easy. But that nest egg he worked so hard to nurture is running out. And not enough money is coming in. "When you're successful you take it for granted," he said. "When the shit hits the fan it's a whole different operation." Cakmis' Greek immigrant parents were both restaurateurs, a word he uses with pride. One time his dad, a handshake man, bought him a black Schwinn Jaguar bike, then gave it to an orphanage because he didn't keep up with chores. According to Cakmis, at one point his parents owned 30 different restaurants. They worked hard, long hours. His said his dad died from the stress, and his mom was stuck with the responsibility of the restaurants. The restaurants went like a "fire sale," he said. He grew up, got married and then divorced. In 1983 he opened his first restaurant in downtown Gainesville. He was 35, and he learned what it took to run a business. How to treat customers. How to cook. At limes he was a janitor and a maintenance man, but he was a restaurateur just like his dad. In 1986 he moved to his flagship location on 43rd Street. He remarried and continued working. His wife worked, too, while pregnant. He had a philosophy about give-and-take with his customers. "People want to feel important when they come into a restaurant," he said. "And you want to make them feel good, because without them you're nothing." His business grew, as good ones do, steadily over the years. But he couldn't forget about his dad and all those restaurants in Ohio. He wanted more. After 10 years, he opened a restaurant on 13th Street. The students found him, the money found him, and Tim Tebow and the Gators found him, too. He would set up a breakfast buffet and close off the back of the restaurant for the football team. He loved that Urban Meyer, and before him, Steve Spurrier, were spending their money locally. Four years later he opened a third location at Williston Road and 1-75. "That'll be a little goldmine in a few years." Cakmis was the breakfast king. Three restaurants. A nice house for his wife and kids and somenicecars. But three places meant triple the problems and a strainonthemarriage. Hewent through a few managers because he kept catching them stealing. His health started to flicker. In 2008, CVS wanted his real estate, and offered him buckets of money, so he sold. "You could just tell people Were tightening up with their money." Paul Cakmis Owner, 43rd Street Deli After all, hadn't he been working hard all this lime? Didn't he deserve to put a little away for his wife and kids? He did well from the sale and didn't notice at first when monthly profits started to drop. One less restaurant meant fewer customers. Die-hards who came in four times a week only came once. Fewer students. Something was in the air. "You could just tell people were lightening up with their money," he said. "You could just sense it." Deliveries got more expensive. Food prices started to spike. Then they soared. A gas surcharge and an insurance hike hit while his income droppedby a third. Thebanks started having trouble and wouldn't lend money anymore. He lost his left eye to a virus. Now he was living off the sale because no checks were coming in. His marriage was dissolving. He was drinking too much for a man his age. He had a heart attack. He didn't want all those years of hard work to go to waste. He wanted to retire one day. He wanted to leave some money for his kids when he died. He had to cut his best employees' hours. He had to lay some off. They trusted him, and he let them down. He felt the weight of the families who depended on him. He developed ulcers that burst in his belly He had to compete with the dollar menu and the five-dollar footlong. He couldn't sleep, so he started making lists. How much bacon did he need? How much cheddar? What could he afford? Who did he owe money to? He'd call and ask for more lime. His is not the only business suffering. After 82 years in Gainesville, Louis' Lunch will close later this month. The owner has blamed the recession and nearby road construction. Similar construclionon43rd Streethas damaged Cakmis' already fragile business, he said. Cakmis believes that people in Gainesville should spend their money here, in town. He's not a corporation. He needs help. Today, he's thankful for what he has: his wife, kids and grandkids. He's even opimisic. He believes it's going to get better, but in the meantime, he's going to deal with it the only way he knows how. "I'm gonna wake up every day and come to work and bust my can." That's how his dad did it, and that's how he's going to do it. There's no lime to feel sorry for himself. He has restaurants to run. Students discuss culture at 'Politics of Silence' event THEY WATCH ED VIDEOS and elaborated on the need for UF ON RECENT GAY SUICIDES. cultural organizations to interact By SAMANTHA LIEBHABER Alligator Contributing Writer About 50 students gathered in Orange and Brew on Tuesday night for guided discussions on culture in politics, in a open forum titled "Politics of Silence." Student Government sponsored the forum, which cost about $200 to host. Participants were shown videos related to the recent suicides of homosexual students who were struggling with discriminalion. They also discussed race relations in politics and the planned constructions of an Islamic center near Ground Zero in New York City. Students were then asked to discuss their feelings about the issues and how they thought the issues relate to UF. Nirav N. Patel, a philosophy and geography junior, stood up "I feel like we're still segregated here," he said. "It sucks being in an old southern school." According to Romilda Juslilien, director of multicultural affairs for SG, the purpose of the event was to advance social justice and raise awareness of other cultures. The aim is to make just one person more socially conscious so that he or she can promote it to friends and family, she said. "I think that we got some really great ideas that we want to implement," Justilien said. Ching-Ya Ni, a Chinese and political science junior, said she came to the event to hear the polilical opinions of students outside of class. She said the event provided a good outlet for addressing mulliculturalism, but that it could have had more diversity. "I just wish there were more people so it could have been a better discussion," she said. Junior Nirav N. Patel speaks about segregation in Greek affairs and cultural organizations on campus at "The Politics of Silence" talk hosted by Student Government at Orange and Brew Tuesday night. Catalan singer plays 'politically rebellious' music for 75 By CRISTINA RABAZA Alligator Contributing Writer Catalan singer-songwriter Pau Alabajos performed for more than 75 people at the Thomas Center Tuesday night in celebration of Catalan culture and its constrained music scene. The department of Spanish and Portuguese Studies broughtAlabajos and actress Susanna SebastA to Gainesville, as they are on their American tour. Accompanied by Sebastis, Alabajos shared music from the "Nova Canc6," a politically rebellious genre of music which arose during the 1960s and 1970s in Catalonia, a territory belonging to Spain that struggles with its independent identity and its desire to be its own country. "You couldn't give an explicit message about what you thought politically in those times," Alabajos said, "so people did it through music." Although censorship reached its heights during Spain's Franco era, Alabajos said playing music on the streets of Valencia will still land you a $500 fine and Alabajos the confiscation of your instrument today. Alabajos said the city now bans the music as a misguided means of protecting its reputation, but he still plays to "catch the feeling" of the oppression the "Nova Cang6" musicians felt during Franco's reign. "The image the government is trying to maintain is this very modern, conservative kind of image," he said. "It doesn't really work, though." Alabajos said the artistic expression of Catalan culture is more celebrated beyond its borders than within. Even UF's Catalan program, with only 12 students enrolled in classes this fall, is a refreshing dose of enthusiasm about his and SebastiA's little-discussed culture. "There's really no space for musical expression in our country," he said. "There's this general censorship for those against the government. It's a form of discrimination."

Republican leadership left the country's economy in a hole, Clinton said, and they are now quick to criticize President Barack Obama and Democrats for not being able to climb out of it yet. "You're right, we didn't get out of this hole," Clinton said. "It was a very deep hole. But at least we stopped digging." He urged the college students in the crowd at the campus activities center to get out the vote for Meek. He warned that if Republicans regain control of Congress, they will take steps to make it more difficult to get and repay student loans. "I will continue to work, I'll continue to fight for you, and I'll continue to give you a voice in the process." Kendrick Meek Democratic Representative Meek is in need of the help. Two weeks before the election, polls show the four-term South Florida congressman well behind Republican Marco Rubio and Gov. Charlie Crist, who is running as an independent. Some Democrats have suggested Meek drop out of the race to give Crist a chance to beat the more conservative Rubio, but Meek has refused. He noted that he withstood a barrage of attack ads and Clinton said Meek should be elected to help keep Obama's health care reform law intact and keep Congress from privatizing Medicare. And Meek, he said, is the only one of the three candidates who has already worked in Congress to keep the country secure. Clinton said his administration proved that Democratic principles are more effective. "We've tested these ideas, theirs and ours, and ours worked better," he said. Before Clinton spoke, U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson told the crowd he needed Meek in Washington to help him keep gas and oil drilling rigs far away from Florida beaches. Clinton is scheduled to appear with Meek at a rally Wednesday at the University of Central Florida in Orlando. 1 the independent florida a gator The Board of Directors of Campus Communications, Inc., publisher of @11 'gatororg and announces the openings for the positions Editor, a paid position as head of the Editorial Division and as an unpaid member of the Board of Directors Managing Editor/Print AND Managing Editor/Online, Paid positions.

6, ALLIGATOR U WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 20, 2010 Justice for some Administration not exempt from obeying law e're proud of our justice system in this country. We don't imprison Nobel Peace Prize winners like China does, unless you count that whole Martin Luther King Jr. situation when we threw the book at him for being black. And we spit on the ground near any country that doesn't follow our coveted "innocent until proven guilty" judicial mantra. Except if you're Muslim, brown-skinned or remotely look like you might be from any of those -stan countries. No, then you're a terrorist, and we need to shackle you up. The American Civil Liberties Union will certainly be delighted as the Supreme Court agreed Monday to intervene in a case dealing with the issue of falsely labeling someone who looks Middle Eastern as a terrorist as the civil nghts organization keeps trying to sue members of the Bush Administration for abusing the law. Saying former Attorney General John Ashcroft used a "gross abuse" of his authority as the nation's top attorney by arresting and shackling Muslim-looking assumed terrorists in airports and around town, particularly Lavoni Kidd in 2005, the ACLU wants Ashcroft to be held accountable for his woefully incompetent misuse of the law to arrest Americans without any probable cause. But apparently to some people, having brown skin is enough probable cause. The fact of the matter is the Bush Administration, particularly Ashcroft, abused the laws intended to protect our citizens. It's time to face the fire. The people in charge of falsely labeling Middle Easterners as terrorists need to be held accountable for using race as probable cause. Mad as a Hatter If the Tea Party gets any more laughs, or gets any crazier, we're going to have to start wondering if it's Kool-Aid in their cups rather than chai. In a double dose of funfor-everyone laughter, two prominent Tea Party candidates made social blunders that make us wonder how anyone could want these lovely ladies to run our country. Challenging current Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, U.S. Senate candidate Sharron Angle said to a group of Hispanic students they looked "a little more Asian." While we've never had the unfortunate circumstance of mistaking an Asian student for Hispanic, we're even more astounded Angle thought this would be an appropriate thing to say to a group of Hispanic voters in the state she's hoping to capture. And across the country in Delaware, our darling Tea Partier Christine O'Donnell asked a group of law students where in the Constitution is any mention of that whole church-and-state-separation thing. More confused than Angle when she walks into Panda Express, O'Donnell had no choice but to smile in fear behind her water glass as the crowd of law students erupted in laughter. As they should have. It's ridiculous to suggest a major candidate, who is also seeking to claim the seat our current vice president once held, can serve effectively without having a most-basic knowledge of our governing document.

What do all three of these dates have in common? They're all considered days when the music died. Feb. 3 will be forever immortalized in Don McLean's "American Pie," memorializing the plane crash that killed Buddy Holly, Richie Valens and the Big Bopper.

Rock 104 signs off for the last time, and 103.7 The Gator signs on air with country music for Gainesville. I'm not a person who considers himself a music snob or a rock exclusivist; I legitimately listen to everything. Yes, that includes country. But it's a matter of checks and balances, and the death of Rock 104 significantly upsets the balance of the Gainesville music scene. There are now at least six country music radio stations that can be received in Gainesville, four being larger stations. When it comes to the modern rock that Rock 104 broadcasted? Just one. There are more stations in the Gainesville/ Ocala metropolitan market that broadcast Christian contemporary music than modern alternative rock 'n' roll. That's just not right. But wait a second, according to the powers that be, Rock 104 isn't dead! It's just available online now. It's time to send a message to companies that continue to move stations online and pretend they still exist. Granted, something's better than nothing. But until I can receive Internet radio or HD radio easily and affordably in my car, where radio still reigns supreme, although CD players and iPod docks are creep104) music died ing up to kill it completely, Rock 104 is dead to me. Furthermore, the actual signing off of Rock 104 isn't the worst part. The format change leads to less diversity in the Gainesville radio Sean Quinn spectrum, making the metropoliletters@alligator.org tan area less attractive to students who aren't from the North Florida area, and aren't getting to listen to Jimmy Eat World, Papa Roach or The Black Keys they're used to listening to back home. Of course there's no way to cater to every student's interest. It's safe to say we won't see a dedicated world music station any time soon. However, 103.7 FM is registered to UF, and it should be in the best interest of the university to represent its student body as best possible. Rock 104 was an enterprise that catered to, and was often run by, students. In contrast, 103.7 The Gator seems to be catering toward the local community. The ideal scenario for a university-operated radio station should be to provide quality content for its students, faculty and staff while also providing a public service to the local community.

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 20, 2010 E ALLIGATOR, 7 A serious need for America It's been a long and crazy road to these midterm elections with lots of rhetoric and lots of ridiculous commercials. However, now its lime to have a moment of seriousness before we go to the polls in less than two weeks. Speaking of seriousness, this is the one quality the Tea Party and the GOP notably lacks at the moment. For many reasons, we in this country have gotten ourselves into some serious problems, including dependence on foreign oil, dangerous trade imbalances and an inability to meet our financial obligations such as social security and Medicare. Despite what you hear on TV, these probidea their taxes were cut. lems did not become problems in January We need people in government who are go2009. We have been moving in this direction ing to make tough situations in the face of very for a few decades. tough circumstances. Listening to Republican The Tea Party and many GOP candidates commercials, you would think the only issue seem to think "I don't like taxes" and "I don't this country is facing is big government. like bailouts" are real campaign platforms -This is the same government Obama inherthey're not, by the way. Do some research and see if you can find a single, reputable economist who thinks the bailout was unnecessary. Do some research and find out taxes have decreased for 95 percent of Americans since Obama took office. A recent New York Times poll showed 90 percent of Americans have no ited from Bush. It has an executive, legislative and judicial branch. It is responsible for many tasks and those tasks are funded by taxes. The only thing that has changed is GOP strategists have figured out talking about "small government" gets certain voters as excited as a 13-year-old girl at a Justin Bieber concert. So when you go to the polls, and you're all angry about health care, bailouts and taxes, remember all responsible economists agreed health care needed swift and aggressive reform to avoid a financially unsustainable situation. Remember the bailouts, while painful, were not only the brainchild of Bush, but were extraordinarily necessary. Remember your taxes and taxes for small businesses have decreased. Make an informed choice. Don't get excited about hollow and absurd campaign slogans. Vote for serious people. Dave Gallo 4CLAS Public education mars America's If you've done as much study of the Founding Fathers as I have, one fact starts to stick out time and again: none was the product of public education. That's right, the greatest men of American history were all schooled either in the rooms of a private institution or by the best teacher in the world: real life. Had they known in a couple centuries the hopes for representative government rested on the votes of brainwashed drones, educated by the state onthe high value of Rooseveltism, laziness and sexual deviancy, would they have proceeded how they did? In the always witty words of Thomas Jefferson, "Not on the life of a poore cooper's wife." Don't believe me? Just take a look at the curricula forced upon schools by the Florida Department of Education. Civics classes don't require a single mention of Ronald Reagan, Herbert Hoover or John Tyler, rated by scholars as the three best presidents in history. Inconveniently for the state, they just happen to be the president who pushed to dismantle the Department of Education, the president who was solving the Great Depression the market-based way only to have FDR plunge us back into record unemployment and the president who accepted Texas into the union. I wonder why the Department of Education passes them over. Brian Amos Instead, requirements include entries Speaking Out like "Socialism -discuss benefits and shortcomings." Shortcomings? I'm not sure the people of Soviet Russia would have used that weak of a word, although they would probably admit that they were "coming up short" on essentials like food and televisions. It's not just the explicit curriculum; its also what they're implicitly teaching us. It's clear, to intelligent people at least, having free education breeds dependence on the government. Every time a cut in Bright Futures is discussed, students whine in a collective fear of less beer money and (gasp!) a summer job. Contrast that with Constitution signer Nicholas Gilman, who, from age seven, worked on his father's farm eight months a year and had to work in the school's kitchen to pay for his four months of tuition the rest of the year. And although his IQ tested at 165 as an adult, this was only average for the raisedon-work Founding Fathers. It's no wonder George W. Bush preferred hiring from schools like Patrick Henry College for his administration. Not only are the students learning in a government-free, Christian environment, as the Founding Fathers did, but 85 percent of the student body was homeschooled for K-12. They are hard working, moral, honest and won't be able to tell you one good ;ire for greatness thing about socialism. It is from schools like these we will see another George Washington -not the government-doled Harvard or Yale. The good news is the 2010 elections are shaping up to put Republicans back in charge of the Senate and the House. We've fallen into dead last in education as a recent study showed the majority of eighth graders in this country couldn't find the United States on a map. In even better news, future-Speaker Boehner has hinted at plans to overhaul the school system in innovative ways. No more federal scholarships. No more biased accreditation system. Strings attached to federal block grants will require cuts to local school funding. While Obama is sure to veto it (so much for change), when 2012 rolls around with Republican President Haley Barbour, we'll be on the start of a path to fix education. And it couldn't come soon enough. We're so dishonoring the Founding Fathers, I suggest a radical move: exhume all the signers of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, attach magnets to their incorrupted bodies, wrap their coffins in wire and re-enter them. The power generated by the spinning in their graves over education will be enough for the country to become energy independent. But thafs another column.

8, ALLIGATOR U WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 20, 2010 Senators oppose block tuition 0 THE RESOLUTION PASSED UNANIMOUSLY. By MEREDITH RUTLAND Alligator Contributing Writer The Student Senate approved a resolution in opposition of block tuition at a meeting Tuesday night. Block tuition would change UF tuition from a per-credit-hour fee system to a flat-fee tuition, based off of the cost of 15 credit hours. According to the resolution, the Senate opposes block tuition because there are students who take fewer than 15 credit hours because they have other obligations, such as work, extracurricular activities or family obligations. The resolution stated that these activities are esStudent sential to prepare Government students for life after college, and block tuition could mean students would have less time for these activities. The resolution passed unanimously, without debate. Senators also debated amendments to the 800 codes of the Student Constitution, which outline Dana Burke/ Alligator the rules for allocating Student Sen. Andrew Hart stands with fellow senators in opposition Government finances. of new appointments of committee seats. Va. man to admit to helping Somali terrorist group THE ASSOCIATED PRESS ALEXANDRIA, Va.-A northern Virginia man who warned the creators of the animated TV show "South Park" that they risked death for mocking the prophet Muhammad is scheduled to plead guilty to supporting an al-Qaida linked terrorist group, according to court records. Zachary Chesser of Bristow, Va., a 20-year-old dropout from George Mason University, is scheduled for a plea hearing Wednesday in federal court in Alexandria, Va., court records show. He is charged with providing material support to a terrorist group, communicating threats and soliciting crimes of violence. According to a court affidavit, Chesser tried to join the al-Shabab terror group in Somalia earlier this year and posted online propaganda for them. Chesser also allegedly took his infant son with him to the airport to make his travel appear more innocuous. Both the U.S. Attorney's Office in Alexandria and Chesser's attorney, federal public defender Michael Nachmanoff, declined comment Tuesday. Before Chesser's arrest in July on the terror charges, he was best known for posting a harshly worded attack on the creators of the "South Park" Chesser cartoon for their perceived mockery of the prophet Muhammad. Prosecutors say that Chesser tried twice in the last year to travel to Somalia and join al-Shabab as a foreign fighter. The most recent attempt came July 10. INTERNATIONAL Islamic militants raid Chechen parliament, 6 people dead THE ASSOCIATED PRESS GROZNY, Russia -Islamic insurgents attacked Chechnya's parliament Tuesday in a brazen suicide raid that left six people dead and 17 wounded, defying Kremlin claims of stability in the volatile southern region. In a clear challenge to Moscow, the raid occurred just as Russia's interior minister was visiting the provincial capital of Grozny. The three attackers drove to the tightly guarded parliament complex and got inside. One militant blew himself up at the doors and another two ran into the building shouting "Allahu akbarl" -"God is great!" in Arabic -as they opened fire on the people inside, said Chechen police spokesman Ramzan Bekkhoyev. The regional chief prosecutor's office said the remaining two attackers also blew themselves up after exchanging fire with police, while other officials said they were killed in a gunbattle. Two police officers and a civilian government employee were killed in the raid and 17 others were wounded, prosecutors said. Bloodstains, body parts and a decapitated corpse were still scattered outside the building hours after the attack as police and special forces backed by armored vehicles patrolled the area. An Associated Press reporter at the parliament saw ambulances take away two bodies, along with the severed head of a militant. Chechnya's Moscow-backed regional president, Ramzan Kadyrov, sought to play down the attack, saying the assailants were killed quickly. His office said Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin and President Dmitry Medvedev called him to offer assistance. Medvedev, on a visit to France, was briefed about the attack by Russian security officials. In Washington, the U.S. offered condolences to the families of the dead and wounded. "We also express our solidarity with Russia in the struggle against terrorism. We're concerned about continued violence in Russia's North Caucasus, which contributes to instability and personal insecurity in the region," said State Department spokesman Mark Toner. "Several independent nongovernmental reports confirm that -.I -w u M AP Photo Special Force (OMON) officers are seen at the scene after a bomb blast, with human body parts in front of Chechen parliament complex in Grozny, Chechnya, southern Russia on Tuesday. the level of violence has increased in 2010 in several North Caucasus regions, and we've been following these events closely." Kadyrov and Russia's Interior Minister Rashid Nurgaliyev attended a parliament session shortly after the raid. Nurgaliyev said the insurgents had tried to get into the main parliamentary chamber. "As always, they failed. Unfortunately, we were not able to avoid loss of life," Nurgaliyev said. "The situation we saw today is extremely rare. Here, there is stability and security." Kadyrov, a former rebel, has recruited many ex-militants into his feared security forces. The bullnecked 34-year-old former militia chief also sought to blunt the rebels' appeal with a massive construction boom in Chechnya and a campaign to impose strict Islamic values. The ITAR-Tass news agency cited Chechnya's Interior Ministry branch as saying that the attack had been planned by warlord Khusein Gakayev who had broken loose from the main rebel commander, Doku Umarov. It said Gakayev launched the attack to try to raise his profile. Human rights activists have accused security forces and paramilitary units under Kadyrov's command of extra-judicial killings, kidnappings and torture of rebel suspects and their relatives.

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 20, 2010 U ALLIGATOR, 9 Pro-life group protests silently on Plaza of the Americas By MEG WAGNER Alligator Contributing Writer Students have made their voices heard by staying silent. -4 sw About 25 members of UF's Pro-Life Alliance, their mouths covered with red duct tape with the word "life" written in black, took a daylong vow of silence Tuesday to remember the lives lost through abortion. "We give up our voices for the day to symbolize the 4,000 babies that will be aborted today, who never even got a chance to be heard," said Brianne Umhoefer, vice president of the UF Pro-Life Alliance. The protest is part of the seventh annual Day of Silent Solidarity, a national event organized by Stand True Ministries in Ohio that asks pro-life supporters to take a vow of silence for the day. The members who chose to remain silent did so for the entire day, sporting the red duct tape to class. They allowed themselves to speak only when "viStudent tally necessary," Umhoefer said. Life "It's kind of ironic when you really think about it," said Mary Catherine Damon, UF Pro-Life Alliance secretary. "We're completely silent, but we get more attention doing this than we would if we were yelling and screaming." Pro-Life Alliance President Sharon Parker said the event draws mixed reactions. She said last year some students joined in even though they were not affiliated with the group. But the group also gets negative reactions. "Each year we get a few really aggressive people that just want to argue," she said. "They just get really angry. Parker said most people who disagree with the group are pretty respectful, though. Senior linguistics major Cary Marcous said she's been offended by other pro-life protests, but she finds the Day of Silent Solidarity a nice alternative to more abrasive demonstrations. Britt Perkins / Alligator "If they can get their point across in a way that is this Haley Sasser, left, and Rob Waldbillig, both 19-year-old sophomores, pass out pro-life information Tuesday on the Plaza of peaceful, then more power to them," she said. the Americas. Their mouths were sealed with red tape to represent the voices they believe are silenced by abortion.

Sports WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 20, 2010 ALLIGATOR www.alligatorSports.org Gators ready to face Vols after short turnaround Steven H. Keys/ Alligator Staff Libero Erin Fleming and Florida will take on Tennessee just three days after beating Georgia on Sunday, The Gators beat the Vols in their first meeting on Sept. 19. MEN'S BASKETBALL UF optimistic about PG depth By GREG LUCA Alligator Writer gluca@alligator org After entering last season with serious questions about the point guard position, coach Billy Donovan believes he has four viable answers to start the new year. With Erving Walker returning for his junior year, Chandler Parsons and Kenny Boynton developing their point guard skills and Scottie Wilbekin making the jump from high school, the Gators have plenty of options at the one spot. "We feel like, outside of Erving, we have some other options we can use if Erving is maybe getting taken out of the game, or we need to try to free him up to shoot the ball a little bit more," Donovan said. Last season Walker started 33 of the team's 34 games, averaging a team-high 4.9 assists per game and establishing a 2-1 assist-toturnover ratio. But, as the season wore on, teams started to put more pressure on Walker in the backcourt. This forced him to pass over defenders, which proved to be a difficult task for the Southeastern Conference's shortest player (5foot-8). In response, the Gators would usually call on 6-foot-10 forward Chandler Parsons to run the point. Parsons proved to be an effective option, averaging 2.6 assists per game and posting a 1.3-1 assist to turnover ratio for the season. Throughout the offseason Parsons has worked on making those areas of his game even stronger in an attempt to become a more Parsons complete player. "I want to be able to do everything," Parsons said. "I want to be able to pass, shoot, score inside, score outside, defend, play the four if I have to, play the point if I have to. So this summer and last year I just tired to become the most versatile player I could." Parsons has displayed this versatility in SEE HOOPS, PAGE 15 By MATT RUBIN Alligator Writer Many things have changed since Mary Wise became Florida's coach in 1991. While the basic objectives of volleyball have remained the same, how the team trains for a season has become vastly different. "When we first got here we were doing a watered-down version of what football was doing, and it wasn't sport specific," Wise said. "Players would come in, do it and get out. Now it's devised for each individual athlete by position." The strength and conditioning program will come into play tonight as the No. 1 Gators (16-1, 9-0 Southeastern Conference) take on the No. 21 Volunteers (15-4, 7-3 SEC) in the O'Connell Center at 8 -just three days after defeating Georgia on Sunday. The match will be nationally televised on ESPNU. It's not the ideal length of time the team would like to prepare for its second meeting with Tennessee (UF won 3-1 (28-26, 25-23, 19-25, 25-17) on Sept. 19). But, physically, Big plays biggest Look at Flonida's "Keys to Success" chart, and you will only see one assignment for the offense: succeed in the red zone. Of course, the chart as a whole is an oversimplified way to explain wins and losses. It only consists of four keys. But since UrbanMeyer brought his super spread option to Gainesville in 2005, the amount of points Florida's offense posted has directly correlated with the group's red-zone success. In the Age of Urban, the offense's peak seasons were 2007 and 2008, when the Gators averaged 43.1 points per game and scored on 89 percent of red-zone possessions. But in Meyer's other four seasons, Florida has scored on just 75 percent of trips inside the opponents' 20-yard line, making this year's red-zone efficiency rate (73 percent) troubling the Gators are ready. "Strength training is a part of athletics -for injury prevention, for bettering performance," Wise said. "We've been very fortunate in terms of our health and it's all related to the job [Matt DeLancey] does." DeLancey, who is in his seventh season as the strength and conditioning coordinator for the Gators, designs a specific conditioning program for each player. Each of the players do single-leg jumps ACL prevention, arm strength and rotator cuff prevention to help prevent injury and strengthen those areas. "Matt DeLancey is the most high energy person I've ever met in my life," libero Erin Fleming said. "He's really enthusiastic about the program; he's tough and never gives us a break. "We had a game Friday and Sunday and now a quick turnaround Wednesday against a really good Tennessee team. During the summer, he prepared us for this kind of quick turnaround so SEE VOLLEYBALL, PAGE 15 than red zone 10&ft not because of how low it is but because of how little it tells fans about Tyler Jett the offense.

But, by comparison, the team's offense outside the opponent's 20-yard line has been much worse.

Gators hope Wilbekin can contribute right away UF guard Erving Walker played a team-high 32.9 minutes per game last season. The Gators want to lighten Walker's workload this year. HOOPS, from page 14 the early stages of practice, spending time at point guard in addition to his normal duties as a forward. Even if Donovan opts to use Parsons only in the frontcourt, the senior expects to show his full range of abilities. "In our offense if I get the rebound I'm gonna go with it, I'm gonna push the ball," Parsons said. "If I end up having the ball up there during our half-court set, I can run it comfortably." Another player trying his hand in the point guard role is sophomore Kenny Boynton, who led the Gators in scoring while starting in 33 games last season primanly as a shooting guard. Boynton has spent a large portion of the first few practices playing point guard across from Walker in Florida's intrasquad scrimmages, and has found the adjustment to be simpler than he anticipated. "So far its been a lot easier than I thought I feel very comfortable," Boynton said. "I think I've been making good decisions at the point guard position." A fourth option the Gators have is freshman Scottie Wilbekin, whose toughness and stamina have impressed Donovan so far. "I think I've been making good decisions at the point guard position." Kenny Boynton UF sophomore Donovan believes Wilbekin will be able to produce off the bench in his rookie season despite joining the Gators after only three years of high school at Gainesville The Rock. "I really believe right now, after two practices, just physically and conditioning-wise that he is going to be able to contribute to our team," Donovan said. "How many minutes and how much I'm not sure, but I do think that he's going to be a positive piece for our team going forward." TYLER, from page 14 points. Big plays have made the biggest difference between the two groups. Florida averaged almost 18 points outside the red zone last year while this season's group is scoring less than 10 per game, the worst rate since Meyer became coach. Translation: the Gators aren't explosive. Jeff Demps leg injury and Chris Rainey's suspension have hampered the running game. Through seven games last season, the duo had each busted a pair of long touchdown runs. This season, Demps has scored on two big runs while Rainey has been sidelined for buckwild texting. But the difference in long runs negligible. And, with scores coming from three interception returns and one kickoff return, Florida's defense and special teams are pitching in more than they did last year. This really leaves only one scapegoat: the dump-n-run passing game. John Brantley has only thrown one touchdown from beyond the 20 -in the season opener on a fourth-quarter Hail Mary to Rainey in double coverage. The play was so Les-Miles lucky that Meyer looked on with disgust as his team celebrated the score. But at least they could celebrate then. Through seven games last season, Tebow awkwardly windmilled the ball for seven touchdowns longer than 20 yards. But if Brantley is the culpnt, he isn't performing the unintentional heist solo. Sure, Florida's passing offense is the SEC's fifth worst (or eighth best, depending on your outlook). But of Tebow's seven long-ball, big-nuts touchdowns, only two were directed at receivers on this year's team. Both of those went to Deonte Thompson. And would you blame Brantley if he forgot to look in Thompson's direction for the rest of the season? You can't defend Florida's red-zone problems. But that's not the only area of concern. The Gators have struggled inside the 20 before and still scored in bunches. The key for the Gators is to start finding the end zone from far away, particularly with the ball coming off Brantley's right arm, because Florida has not outscored opponents enough this season. And that's the greatest "Key to Success. UF leads conference in blocks VOLLEYBALL, from page 14 we're not physically tired." Fleming will be busy against the Volunteers, which lead the SEC in hitting percentage. The Gators will once again count on middle blockers Lauren Bledsoe and Cassandra Anderson to combat those two areas of the game. In Knoxville, Tenn., Bledsoe recorded eight blocks as Anderson pitched in with five and a .556 hitting percentage. Both anchor a Florida team that leads the conference in blocks. "Tennessee always plays its best volleyball in the second half of the SEC season and they have two of the premier offensive players in the league," Wise said. "They've always played us well in the O'Connell Center." In the first meeting with Tennessee, the Gators held Nikki Fowler -third in the SEC in kills -to just eight kills on .097 hitting. Setter Kelly Murphy will also play a large role in tonight's match. Murphy, who was named the SEC Offensive Player of the Week for her performances last weekend, notched a triple-double with Volleyball 19 kills, 25 assists, 14 digs and four blocks against Tennessee in September. That performance earned her player of the week honors. "We have a great opportunity for our program and the sport of women's volleyball to play on a national stage with ESPNU," Wise said. "It's not something you can say no to."

16, ALLIGATOR U WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 20, 2010 Four-star tight end Leonard recommits to Gators He plans to enroll early at Florida in January By TOM GREEN Alligator Writer tgreen@alligator org Five days after decommitting from Florida, A.C. Leonard made his college decision late Monday. And for the third time in less than a year, the four-star Jacksonville University Christian School tight end is a Gator. But this time the nation's fourth-rated tight end, according to Rivals.com, said he's sticking with his choice. "Lately people have been coming into my life for the wrong reasons," Leonard told Scout.com. "They have been giving me bad advice, but now I have had time to sit down and think things through. I am a Gator and I am shutting the whole Recruiting process down." Leonard decommitted from Florida last week in the wake of UF's loss to LSU on Oct. 9 the team's second in a row. The tight end attended the game and reportedly left The Swamp disappointed with the Gators' offense, saying the 33-29 loss was difficult to watch. It wasn't the first time Leonard backed off his oral commitment to the Gators, though. After initially deciding on UF last November, Leonard decommitted following Urban Meyer's decision to step down as head coach, only to recommit shortly thereafter. When Leonard reopened the recruiting process last week, he was also considering offers from Nebraska, Alabama and Miami. The tight end already took official visits to Nebraska on Sept. 24 and to Alaa bama on Oct. 1, and University Christian School coach Heath Nivens said last week that Leonard planned to take his remaining three official visits, including one to Miami. But with the four-star prospect closing the recruiting process and planning to enTight end A.C. Leonard (left) said he is ending the recruiting process after recommitting to Florida on Monday. roll at UF in January, it is doubtful Leonard will take the remaining visits. While Leonard will probably be donning a Florida jersey when spring practice begins, it is uncertain if he will suit up again this season for University Christian School. Reports surfaced Tuesday afternoon that Leonard had been ruled ineligible for the remainder of his senior season by the FHSAA due to an on-field incident that took place when University Christian played Jacksonville Episcopal High on Friday. However, calls to Nivens and the FHSAA seeking confirmation were not returned Tuesday. Players unhappy?: According to a report on the website MrSEC.com, Ellenwood (Ga.) Cedar Grove High athlete Vincent Dallas, who took his official visit to Florida for the LSU game, asked current players on the UF roster if they were happy with their decisions to become Gators. Dallas, who committed to Tennessee on Friday, reportedly said some of the players weren't happy and didn't "think Florida is the right place for them." The three-star athlete refuted the report on his Facebook page and said he wouldn't be giving any interviews until January. "To the Florida people that was not a true statement about Florida," Dallas posted on his Facebook. "I really really didn't like how the reporter did me today." Oral commitments are non-binding until a national letter of intent is signed on or after National Signing Day on Feb. 2.

VOLUME 104 ISSUE 42 WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 20, 2010Not officially associated with the University of Florida Published by Campus Communications, Inc. of Gainesville, Florida Todayvisit www.alligator.orgRENO, Nev. (AP) — A Reno cat has broken the Guinness record for world’s longest domestic cat. The Reno Gazette-Journal reported that a 5-year-old Maine Coon named Stewie measured 48 1/2 inches from the tip of his nose to the tip of his tail bone. Robin Hendrickson and Erik Brandsness purchased the cat from a breeder in Hermiston, Ore., in 2005. The previous record holder was another Maine Coon that measured 48 inches. It was owned by Frieda Ireland of Chicago. Hendrickson said Maine Coons are one of the oldest natural breeds of cats and are known for their mellow, relaxed temperaments. She says they’re known as “the gentle giants” of the cat world. Hendrickson said she and Brandsness decided to try for the record after hearing countless people said they were amazed by Stewie’s length.48.5inch Nevada cat breaks record for longest domestic cat Sunny 86/58FORECAST 2 OPINIONS 6 CLASSIFIEDS 10 CROSSWORD 11 SPORTS 14 Tom Plevik/ Alligator StaffMirrored Music Students from a UF Catalan language class were in attendance. By MINA RADMANAlligator Contributing Writer In spite of the recession, Gainesville fundraising season will be strong. Local chapters of numerous national charities, including the United Way of North Central Florida and the Ronald McDonald House of Gainesville, have been community, despite a decline in donations. “Things are down, but not as much as the recession proves it should be,” said Deborah Horvath, executive director of the Ronald McDonald House. “We’re still paying our bills, so I think things will be okay.” Nationally, charities have experienced steep declines. The Philanthropy 400 report released Monday shows donations to the nation’s 400 biggest charities have decreased by 11 percent in the past year, the worst decline in 20 years. However, a few national charities continue to bring in large donations, including United Way and Habitat for Humanity. The United Way of North Central Florida, based in Gainesville, brought in $8.5 million this past year through a combination of volunteer work, donations of food and books and federal programs and grants. “For areas with sizes similar to ours, we’re second in the country,” said Mindy Underberger, vice-president for marketing and communications at the United Way. The fundraising season begins with the onset of the holiday season. Local charities have begun looking at new outlets to spread the word about helping the community. The Salvation Army has signed an agreement to receive donations by text message, while the Ronald McDonald House of Gainesville recently created a Facebook page to promote upcoming events. According to Horvath, these actions alone do not necessarily lead to donations. However, for United Way, this season already appears to be a good one. “From all the early results we’re seeing right now, we see that the community is very supportive and generous in spite of the economic times,” Underberger said. “We will be able to continue our support to the community.” THE PAST TWO YEARS, TICKETS RAN OUT WITHIN ABOUT 10 MINUTES.By THOMAS MORRELLAlligator Contributing Writer Students did not have to scramble to purchase their tickets to the Florida-Georgia football game this year. game usually sell out within minutes of going on sale. This year, however, tickets were still for sale hours after they became available. Mark Gajda, the assistant athletics director for ticket operations, said tickets for the FloridaGeorgia game sold much slower this year than in previous years. “For 2008 and 2009 ticket sales went very quick, it was probably 10 minutes for the completion of the sale,” he said Tuesday. “This year it went to midnight and didn’t even sell out until this morning.” Senior John Tracy said he didn’t want to spend the money on a ticket and go all the way to Jacksonville to watch the Gators lose another game. But buying a ticket to the game was nearly impossible last year, Tracy said. He said he got home from work last year at exactly 6:09 p.m. and logged online to purchase his Georgia tickets at 6:12 p.m. Ticket sales were open at 6 p.m., but the tickets were already sold out by the time he logged into the student lottery system. “I was running a little late, but never thought I wouldn’t be able to get a ticket,” said Tracy. “In my mind there was no way that everyone was waiting at their computer for 6 p.m. to come.” Tracy said that even though he didn’t get a ticket online, he still went to the game. All of his friends were going and he knew it was a big game for UF. Ted Spiker, professor of the Sports and Media Society class at UF, said there are other reasons besides the three losses for why ticket sales have been down this year. “This program has extremely high expectations, so when you don’t meet these expectations, then you’re going to see some sales suffer,” Spiker said. “You’re not winning. You’re not getting as much attention. You’re not getting as much interest.”Ticket sales crawl for UF-Georgia “From all the early results we’re seeing right now, we see that the community is very supportive and generous in spite of the economic times.”Mindy Underberger United WayLOCAL Student Lif e

Anthony Taylor Minzie, 19, died early Saturday morning in his hometown of Gainesville, but his friends are using the social media tool to help his memory live on. Minzie, who went by the nickname “Tizzy,” was a Taylor, the name given to fans of rap artist Wiz Khalifa, and he had VIP tickets for one of his concerts. As a freshman at Florida State University, Minzie had planned to go to the artist’s show on Nov. 3 in Tallahassee. His friends have been repeatedly tweeting messages to Khalifa, hoping that the rapper will agree to give a shoutout to Minzie during the concert. “It would be awesome if Wiz Khalifa could just give him a shout out for like two seconds,” said Santa Fe College student Brittney Kelly, who met Minzie over the summer. The two are “married” on Facebook, and she said that he was known for his positive outlook on life. “I’ve literally never heard anything bad talked about him. Everyone loved him,” Kelly said. She said that by Tuesday friends had sent more than 1,000 tweets to the artist. Most of the tweets are variations of this: “Give Tizzy a shout-out @ tally, FL show. He repped taylor gang & passed away the 16th. It would mean the world.” In addition to Twitter, some have chosen to get permanent reminders of Minzie by getting tattoos of his life motto, “Living the dream.” If you’d like to help Minzie’s friends contact Wiz Khalifa you can visit twitter.com/Tiz4Khalifa and click retweet.Friends of Buchholz grad hope rapper will give nod LAWTON M.

THEY WATCHED VIDEOS ON RECENT GAY SUICIDES.By SAMANTHA LIEBHABERAlligator Contributing Writer About 50 students gathered in Orange and Brew on Tuesday night for guided discussions on culture in politics, in a open forum titled “Politics of Silence.” Student Government sponsored the forum, which cost about $200 to host. Participants were shown videos related to the recent suicides of homosexual students who were struggling with discrimination. They also discussed race relations in politics and the planned constructions of an Islamic center near Ground Zero in New York City. Students were then asked to discuss their feelings about the issues and how they thought the issues relate to UF. Nirav N. Patel, a philosophy and geography junior, stood up and elaborated on the need for UF cultural organizations to interact more. “I feel like we’re still segregated here,” he said. “It sucks being in an old southern school.” According to Romilda Justilien, director of multicultural affairs for SG, the purpose of the event was to advance social justice and raise awareness of other cultures. The aim is to make just one person more socially conscious so that he or she can promote it to friends and family, she said. “I think that we got some really great ideas that we want to implement,” Justilien said. Ching-Ya Ni, a Chinese and political science junior, said she came to the event to hear the political opinions of students outside of class. She said the event provided a good outlet for addressing multiculturalism, but that it could have had more diversity. “I just wish there were more people so it could have been a better discussion,” she said. 4, ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 20, 2010Dana Burke / AlligatorJunior Nirav N.

Students discuss culture at ‘Politics of Silence’ eventBy JON SILMAN Alligator Staff Writer Behind an unlit neon sign on 43rd Street, there’s a 25-year-old Gainesville institution. Paul Cakmis owns the place. He’s 61, round like Santa Claus but without the beard. When things were good — before the crash, the layoffs and the lists — the Gator football team would come and eat at the 43rd Street Deli. When he was the king, and he sold one of his restaurants for an obscene amount of money, he had enough to put away to give his family a good life. Things were easy. But that nest egg he worked so hard to nur ture is running out. And not enough money is coming in. “When you’re successful you take it for granted,” he said. “When the shit hits the fan it’s a whole different operation.” Cakmis’ Greek immigrant parents were both restaurateurs, a word he uses with pride. One time his dad, a handshake man, bought him a black Schwinn Jaguar bike, then gave it to an orphanage because he didn’t keep up with chores. According to Cakmis, at one point his parents owned 30 different restaurants. They worked hard, long hours. His said his dad died from the stress, and his mom was stuck with the responsibility of the restaurants. The He grew up, got married and then divorced. downtown Gainesville. He was 35, and he learned what it took to run a business. How to treat customers. How to cook. At times he was a janitor and a maintenance man, but he was a restaurateur just like his dad. 43rd Street. He remarried and continued working. His wife worked, too, while pregnant. He had a philosophy about give-and-take with his customers. “People want to feel important when they come into a restaurant,” he said. “And you want to make them feel good, because without them you’re nothing.” His business grew, as good ones do, steadily over the years. But he couldn’t forget about his dad and all those restaurants in Ohio. He wanted more. After 10 years, he opened a restaurant on 13th Street. The students found him, the money found him, and Tim Tebow and the Gators found him, too. He would set up a breakfast buffet and close off the back of the restaurant for the football team. He loved that Ur ban Meyer, and before him, Steve Spur rier, were spending their money locally. Four years later he opened a third location at Williston Road and I-75. “That’ll be a little goldmine in a few years.” Cakmis was the breakfast king. Three restaurants. A nice house for his wife and kids and some nice cars. But three places meant triple the problems and a strain on the marriage. He went through a few managers because he kept catchIn 2008, CVS wanted his real estate, and offered him buckets of money, so he sold. After all, hadn’t he been working hard all this time? Didn’t he deserve to put a little away for his wife and kids? He did well from the sale and didn’t notice at One less restaurant meant fewer customers. Die-hards who came in four times a week only came once. Fewer students. Something was in the air. “You could just tell people were tightening up with their money,” he said. “You could just sense it.” Deliveries got more expensive. Food prices started to spike. Then they soared. A gas surcharge and an insurance hike hit, while his income dropped by a third. The banks started having trouble and wouldn’t lend money anymore. He lost his left eye to a virus. Now he was living off the sale because no checks were coming in. His marriage was dissolving. He was drinking too much for a man his age. He had a heart attack. He didn’t want all those years of hard work to go to waste. He wanted to retire one day. He wanted to leave some money for his kids when he died. He had to cut his best employees’ hours. He had to lay some off. They trusted him, and he let them down. He felt the weight of the families who depended on him. He developed ulcers that burst in his belly. He had to compete with the dollar menu and He couldn’t sleep, so he started making lists. How much bacon did he need? How much cheddar? What could he afford? Who did he owe money to? He’d call and ask for more time. His is not the only business suffering. After 82 years in Gainesville, Louis’ Lunch will close later this month. The owner has blamed the recession and nearby road construction. Similar construction on 43rd Street has damaged Cakmis’ already fragile business, he said. Cakmis believes that people in Gainesville should spend their money here, in town. He’s not a corporation. He needs help. Today, he’s thankful for what he has: his wife, kids and grandkids. He’s even optimistic. He believes it’s going to get better, but in the meantime, he’s going to deal with it the only way he knows how. “I’m gonna wake up every day and come to work and bust my can.” That’s how his dad did it, and that’s how he’s going to do it. There’s no time to feel sorry for himself. He has restaurants to run. LOCALBy CRISTINA RABAZAAlligator Contributing Writer Catalan singer-songwriter Pau Alabajos performed for more than 75 people at the Thomas Center Tuesday night in celebration of Catalan culture and its constrained music scene. The department of Spanish and Portuguese Studies brought Alabajos and actress Susanna Sebasti to Gainesville, as they are on their American tour. Accompanied by Sebasti, Alabajos shared music from the “Nova Can,” a politically rebellious genre of music which arose during the 1960s and 1970s in Catalonia, a territory belonging to Spain that struggles with its independent identity and its desire to be its own country. “You couldn’t give an explicit message about what you thought politically in those times,” Alabajos said, “so people did it through music.” Although censorship reached its heights during Spain’s Franco era, Alabajos said playing music on the streets of Alabajos said the city now bans the music as a misguided means of protecting its reputation, but he still plays to “catch the feeling” of the oppression the “Nova Can” musicians felt during Franco’s reign. “The image the government is trying to maintain is this very modern, conservative kind of image,” he said. “It doesn’t really work, though.” Alabajos said the artistic expression of Catalan culture is more celebrated beyond its borders than within. Even UF’s Catalan program, with only 12 students enrolled in classes this fall, is a refreshing dose of enthusiasm about his and Sebasti’s little-discussed culture. “There’s really no space for musical expression in our country,” he said. “There’s this general censorship for those against the government. It’s a form of discrimination.”Catalan singer plays ‘politically rebellious’ music for 75Alabajos The 43rd Street Deli has been in business for 25 years “You could just tell people were tightening up with their money.”Paul Cakmis Owner, 43rd Street Deli

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 20, 2010 ALLIGATOR, 5 AP PhotoFlorida Democratic Senate candidate Rep. Kendrick Meek, left, hugs former President Bill Clinton. THE ASSOCIATED PRESSST. PETERSBURG — Democratic Rep. Kendrick Meek brought former President Bill Clinton to town Tuesday to try to whip up some homestretch enthusiasm for his struggling U.S. Senate campaign. The former president, still hugely popular among party members, told a crowd of more than 1,000 on the campus of the University of South Florida on St. Petersburg that Meek and other Democrats in Congress should be given more of a chance to clean up the mess made by the last Republican administration. Republican leadership left the country’s economy in a hole, Clinton said, and they are now quick to criticize President Barack Obama and Democrats for not being able to climb out of it yet. “You’re right, we didn’t get out of this hole,” Clinton said. “It was a very deep hole. But at least we stopped digging.” He urged the college students in the crowd at the campus activities center to get out the vote for Meek. He warned that if Republicans regain control of Congress, they will take steps to make it more “Don’t you listen to this tea party talk about how (Republicans) are on your side,” said Clinton, who campaigned last week at another Southern college, the University of Mississippi. Clinton said he felt so strongly about the country after Monday campaign stops out West, arriving in Florida at 4 a.m. Meek is in need of the help. Two weeks before the election, polls show the four-term South Florida congressman well behind Republican Marco Rubio and Gov. Charlie Crist, who is running as an independent. Some Democrats have suggested Meek drop out of the race to give Crist a chance to beat the more conservative Rubio, but Meek has refused. He noted that he withstood a barrage of attack ads and Greene in the Democratic primary. “I will continue to work, I’ll continue you a voice in the process,” Meek told the crowd hours before he was scheduled to participate in another debate with Rubio and Crist on statewide TV Tuesday night. Clinton said Meek should be elected to help keep Obama’s health care reform law intact and keep Congress from privatizing Medicare. And Meek, he said, is the only one of the three candidates who has already worked in Congress to keep the country secure. Clinton said his administration proved that Democratic principles are more effective. “We’ve tested these ideas, theirs and ours, and ours worked better,” he said. Before Clinton spoke, U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson told the crowd he needed Meek in Washington to help him keep gas and oil drilling rigs far away from Florida beaches. Clinton is scheduled to appear with Meek at a rally Wednesday at the Univer sity of Central Florida in Orlando.Clinton campaign for Meek in Fla. “I will continue to work, I’ll Kendrick Meek

In a double dose of funfor-everyone laughter, two prominent Tea Party candidates made social blunders that make us wonder how anyone could want these lovely ladies to run our country. Challenging current Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, U.S. Senate candidate Sharron Angle said to a group of Hispanic students they looked “a little more Asian.” While we’ve never had the unfortunate circumstance of mistaking an Asian student for Hispanic, we’re even more astounded Angle thought this would be an appropriate thing to say to a group of Hispanic voters in the state she’s hoping to capture. And across the country in Delaware, our darling Tea Partier Christine O’Donnell asked a group of law students where in the Constitution is any mention of that whole church-and-state-separation thing. More confused than Angle when she walks into Panda Express, O’Donnell had no choice but to smile in fear behind her water glass as the crowd of law students erupted in laughter. As they should have. It’s ridiculous to suggest a major candidate, who is also seeking to claim the seat our current vice president once held, can serve effectively without having a most-basic knowledge of our governing document. What you learned at Hogwarts won’t save you here, Christine.The day the (Rock 104) music diedFeb. 3, 1959. July 12, 1979. And now, Oct. 15, 2010. What do all three of these dates have in common? They’re all considered days when the music died. Feb. 3 will be forever immortalized in Don McLean’s “American Pie,” memorializing the plane crash that killed Buddy Holly, Richie Valens and the Big Bopper. July 12 was Disco Demolition Night — a promotion at a Chicago White Sox game gone wrong that resulted in a near riot against disco. Oct. 15? Rock 104 signs off for the last time, and 103.7 The Gator signs on air with country music for Gainesville. I’m not a person who considers himself a music snob or a rock exclusivist; I legitimately listen to everything. Yes, that includes country. But it’s a matter of checks and balances, and the Gainesville music scene. There are now at least six country music radio stations that can be received in Gainesville, four being larger stations. When it comes to the modern rock that Rock 104 broadcasted? Just one. There are more stations in the Gainesville/Ocala metropolitan market that broadcast Christian contemporary music than modern alternative rock ‘n’ roll. That’s just not right. But wait a second, according to the powers that be, Rock 104 isn’t dead! It’s just available online now. It’s time to send a message to companies that continue to move stations online and pretend they still exist. Granted, something’s better than nothing. But until I can receive Internet radio or HD radio easily and affordably in my car, where radio still reigns supreme, although CD players and iPod docks are creeping up to kill it completely, Rock 104 is dead to me. Furthermore, the actual signing off of Rock 104 isn’t the worst part. The format change leads to less diversity in the Gainesville radio spectrum, making the metropolitan area less attractive to students who aren’t from the North Florida area, and aren’t getting to listen to Jimmy Eat World, Papa Roach or The Black Keys they’re used to listening to back home. Of course there’s no way to cater to every student’s interest. It’s safe to say we won’t see a dedicated world music station any time soon. However, 103.7 FM is registered to UF, and it should be in the best interest of the university to represent its student body as best possible. Rock 104 was an enterprise that catered to, and was often run by, students. In contrast, 103.7 The Gator seems to be catering toward the local community. The ideal scenario for a university-operated radio station should be to provide quality content for its students, faculty and staff while also providing a public service to the local community. By becoming the eighth country music station in the area, reducing the diversity in the Gainesville/Ocala radio market and by eliminating one of the two modern alternative rock stations, UF is doing just the opposite of that. Don McLean would agree. Justice for someAdministration not exempt from obeying lawWe’re proud of our justice system in this country. We don’t imprison Nobel Peace Prize winners like China does, unless you count that whole Martin Luther King Jr. situation when we threw the book at him for being black. And we spit on the ground near any country that doesn’t follow our coveted “innocent until proven guilty” judicial mantra. Except if you’re Muslim, brown-skinned or remotely look like you might be from any of those –stan countries. No, then you’re a terrorist, and we need to shackle you up. The American Civil Liberties Union will certainly be delighted as the Supreme Court agreed Monday to intervene in a case dealing with the issue of falsely labeling someone who looks Middle Eastern as a terrorist as the civil rights organization keeps trying to sue members of the Bush Administration for abusing the law. Saying former Attorney General John Ashcroft used a “gross abuse” of his authority as the nation’s top attorney by arresting and shackling Muslim-looking assumed terror ists in airports and around town, particularly Lavoni Kidd in 2005, the ACLU wants Ashcroft to be held accountable for his woefully incompetent misuse of the law to arrest Americans without any probable cause. But apparently to some people, having brown skin is enough probable cause. The fact of the matter is the Bush Administration, par ticularly Ashcroft, abused the laws intended to protect our citizens. labeling Middle Easterners as terrorists need to be held accountable for using race as probable cause.

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 20, 2010 ALLIGATOR, 7Letter to the EditorA serious need for AmericaIt’s been a long and crazy road to these midterm elections with lots of rhetoric and lots of ridiculous commercials. However, now it’s time to have a moment of seriousness before we go to the polls in less than two weeks. Speaking of seriousness, this is the one quality the Tea Party and the GOP notably lacks at the moment. For many reasons, we in this country have gotten ourselves into some serious problems, including dependence on foreign oil, dangerous trade imbalances and such as social security and Medicare. Despite what you hear on TV, these problems did not become problems in January 2009. We have been moving in this direction for a few decades. The Tea Party and many GOP candidates seem to think “I don’t like taxes” and “I don’t like bailouts” are real campaign platforms — they’re not, by the way. Do some research and mist who thinks the bailout was unnecessary. decreased for 95 percent of Americans since poll showed 90 percent of Americans have no idea their taxes were cut. We need people in government who are going to make tough situations in the face of very tough circumstances. Listening to Republican commercials, you would think the only issue this country is facing is big government. This is the same government Obama inher ited from Bush. It has an executive, legislative and judicial branch. It is responsible for many tasks and those tasks are funded by taxes. The only thing that has changed is GOP strategists ernment” gets certain voters as excited as a 13-year-old girl at a Justin Bieber concert. So when you go to the polls, and you’re all angry about health care, bailouts and taxes, remember all responsible economists agreed health care needed swift and aggressive reation. Remember the bailouts, while painful, were not only the brainchild of Bush, but were extraordinarily necessary. Remember your taxes and taxes for small businesses have decreased. Make an informed choice. Don’t get excited about hollow and absurd campaign slogans. Vote for serious people. Dave Gallo 4CLAS If you’ve done as much study of the Founding Fathers as I have, one fact starts to stick out time and again: none was the product of public education. That’s right, the greatest men of American history were all schooled either in the rooms of a private institution or by the best teacher in the world: real life. Had they known in a couple centuries the hopes for representative government rested on the votes of brainwashed drones, educated by the state on the high value of Rooseveltism, laziness and sexual deviancy, would they have proceeded how they did? In the always witty words of Thomas Jefferson, “Not on the life of a poore cooper’s wife.” Don’t believe me? Just take a look at the curricula forced upon schools by the Florida Department of Education. Civics classes don’t require a single mention of Ronald Reagan, Her bert Hoover or John Tyler, rated by scholars as the three best presidents in history. Inconveniently for the state, they just happen to be the president who pushed to dismantle the Department of Education, the president who was solving the Great Depression the market-based way only to have FDR plunge us back into record unemployment and the president who accepted Texas into the union. I wonder why the Department of Education passes them over. Instead, requirements include entries shortcomings.” Shortcomings? I’m not sure the people of Soviet Russia would have used that weak of a word, although they would probably admit that they were “coming up short” on essentials like food and televisions. It’s not just the explicit curriculum; it’s also what they’re implicitly teaching us. It’s clear, to intelligent people at least, having free education breeds dependence on the government. Every time a cut in Bright Futures is discussed, students whine in a collective fear of less beer money and (gasp!) a summer job. Contrast that with Constitution signer Nicholas Gilman, who, from age seven, worked on his father’s farm eight months a year and had to work in the school’s kitchen to pay for his four months of tuition the rest of the year. And although his IQ tested at 165 as an adult, this was only average for the raisedon-work Founding Fathers. It’s no wonder George W. Bush preferred hiring from schools like Patrick Henry College for his administration. Not only are the students learning in a government-free, Christian environment, as the Founding Fathers did, but 85 percent of the student body was homeschooled for K-12. They are hard working, moral, honest and won’t be able to tell you one good thing about socialism. It is from schools like these we will see another George Washington — not the government-doled Harvard or Yale. The good news is the 2010 elections are shaping up to put Republicans back in charge of the Senate and the House. We’ve fallen into dead last in education as a recent study showed the majority of eighth graders in this country couldn’t In even better news, future-Speaker Boehner has hinted at plans to overhaul the school system in innovative ways. No more federal scholarships. No more biased accreditation system. Strings attached to federal block grants will require cuts to local school funding. While Obama is sure to veto it (so much for change), when 2012 rolls around with Republican President And it couldn’t come soon enough. We’re so dishonoring the Founding Fathers, I suggest a radical move: exhume all the signers of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, attach magnets to their incorrupted bodies, wrap their spinning in their graves over education will be enough for the country to become energy independent.

8, ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 20, 2010AP Photo INTERNATIONALTHE ASSOCIATED PRESSGROZNY, Russia — Islamic insurgents attacked Chechnya’s parliament Tuesday in a brazen suicide raid that left six people dead and 17 wounded, defying Kremlin claims of stability in the volatile southern region. In a clear challenge to Moscow, the raid occurred just as Russia’s interior minister was visiting the provincial capital of Grozny. The three attackers drove to the tightly guarded parliament complex and got inside. One militant blew himself up at the doors and another two ran into the building shouting “Allahu akbar!” — “God is great!” in Arabic — as they said Chechen police spokesman Ramzan Bekkhoyev. The regional chief prosecutor’s tackers also blew themselves up killed in a gunbattle. Two police employee were killed in the raid and 17 others were wounded, prosecutors said. Bloodstains, body parts and a decapitated corpse were still scattered outside the building hours after the attack as police and special forces backed by armored vehicles patrolled the area. An Associated Press reporter at the parliament saw ambulances take away two bodies, along with the severed head of a militant. Chechnya’s Moscow-backed regional president, Ramzan Kadyrov, sought to play down the attack, saying the assailants were killed quickly. Minister Vladimir Putin and President Dmitry Medvedev called him to offer assistance. Medvedev, on a visit to France, was briefed about the attack by Russian secuIn Washington, the U.S. offered condolences to the families of the dead and wounded. “We also express our solidarity with Russia in the struggle against terrorism. We’re concerned about continued violence in Russia’s North Caucasus, which contributes to instability and personal insecurity in the region,” said State Department spokesman Mark Toner. “Several independent nonthe level of violence has increased in 2010 in several North Caucasus regions, and we’ve been following these events closely.” Kadyrov and Russia’s Interior Minister Rashid Nurgaliyev attended a parliament session shortly after the raid. Nurgaliyev said the insurgents had tried to get into the main parliamentary chamber. “As always, they failed. Unfortunately, we were not able to avoid loss of life,” Nurgaliyev said. “The situation we saw today is extremely rare. Here, there is stability and security.” Kadyrov, a former rebel, has recruited many ex-militants into his feared security forces. The bullnecked 34-year-old former militia chief also sought to blunt the rebels’ appeal with a massive construction boom in Chechnya and a campaign to impose strict Islamic values. The ITAR-Tass news agency cited Chechnya’s Interior Ministry branch as saying that the attack had been planned by war lord Khusein Gakayev who had broken loose from the main rebel commander, Doku Umarov. It said Gakayev launched the attack Human rights activists have accused security forces and paramilitary units under Kadyrov’s command of extra-judicial killings, kidnappings and torture of rebel suspects and their relatives.Dana Burke / Alligator By MEREDITH RUTLANDAlligator Contributing Writer The Student Senate approved a resolution in opposition of block tuition at a meeting Tuesday night. Block tuition would change UF tuition from a per-credit-hour fee off of the cost of 15 credit hours. According to the resolution, the Senate opposes block tuition because there are students who take fewer than 15 credit hours because they have other obligations, such as work, extracurricular activities or family obligations. The resolution stated that these activities are essential to prepare students for life after college, and block tuition could mean students would have less time for these activities. The resolution passed unanimously, without debate. Senators also debated amendments to the 800 codes of the Student Constitution, which outline the rules for allocating Student Student Go v ernment THE ASSOCIATED PRESSALEXANDRIA, Va.— A northern Virginia man who warned the creators of the animated TV show “South Park” that they risked death for mocking the prophet Muhammad is scheduled to plead guilty to supporting an al-Qaida linked terrorist group, according to court records. Zachary Chesser of Bristow, Va., a 20-year-old dropout from George Mason University, is scheduled for a plea hearing Wednesday in federal court in Alexandria, Va., court records show. He is charged with providing material support to a terrorist group, communicating threats and soliciting crimes of violence. Chesser tried to join the al-Shabab terror group in Somalia earlier this year and posted online propaganda for them. Chesser also allegedly took his infant son with him to the airport to make his travel appear more innocuous. Both the U.S. Attorney’s Ofattorney, federal public defender Michael Nachmanoff, declined comment Tuesday. Before Chesser’s arrest in July on the terror charges, he was best known for posting a harshly worded attack on the creators of the “South Park” cartoon for their perceived mockery of the prophet Muhammad. Prosecutors say that Chesser tried twice in the last year to travel to Somalia and join al-Shabab as attempt came July 10. Chesser

By MEG WAGNER Alligator Contributing Writer Students have made their voices heard by staying silent. About 25 members of UF’s Pro-Life Alliance, their mouths covered with red duct tape with the word “life” written in black, took a daylong vow of silence Tuesday to remember the lives lost through abortion. “We give up our voices for the day to symbolize the 4,000 babies that will be aborted today, who never even got a chance to be heard,” said Brianne Umhoefer, vice president of the UF Pro-Life Alliance. The protest is part of the seventh annual Day of Silent Solidarity, a national event organized by Stand True Ministries in Ohio that asks pro-life supporters to take a vow of silence for the day. The members who chose to remain silent did so for the entire day, sporting the red duct tape to class. They allowed themselves to speak only when “vitally necessary,” Umhoefer said. “It’s kind of ironic when you really think about it,” said Mary Catherine Damon, UF Pro-Life Alliance secretary. “We’re completely silent, but we get more attention doing this than we would if we were yelling and screaming.” Pro-Life Alliance President Sharon Parker said the event draws mixed reactions. She said last year some stuthe group. But the group also gets negative reactions. “Each year we get a few really aggressive people that just want to argue,” she said. “They just get really angry.” Parker said most people who disagree with the group are pretty respectful, though. Senior linguistics major Cary Marcous said she’s been of Silent Solidarity a nice alternative to more abrasive demonstrations. “If they can get their point across in a way that is this peaceful, then more power to them,” she said.

Keys / Alligator StaffLibero Erin Fleming and Florida will take on Tennessee just three days after beating Georgia on Sunday, By MATT RUBINAlligator Writer Many things have changed since Mary Wise became Florida’s coach in 1991. While the basic objectives of volleyball have remained the same, how the team trains for a season has become vastly different. were doing a watered-down ver sion of what football was doing, said. “Players would come in, do it and get out. Now it’s devised for each individual athlete by posiThe strength and conditioning program will come into play tonight as the No. 1 Gators (16-1, 9-0 Southeastern Conference) take on the No. 21 Volunteers (15-4, 7-3 SEC) in the O’Connell Center at 8 — just three days after defeating Georgia on Sunday. The match will be nationally televised on ESPNU. It’s not the ideal length of time the team would like to prepare for its second meeting with Tennessee (UF won 3-1 (28-26, 25-23, 19-25, 25-17) on Sept. 19). But, physically, the Gators are ready. “Strength training is a part of athletics — for injury prevention, said. “We’ve been very fortunate in terms of our health and it’s all related to the job [Matt DeLancey] DeLancey, who is in his seventh season as the strength and conditioning coordinator for the Gators, program for each player. Each of the players do single-leg jumps ACL prevention, arm strength and rotator cuff prevention to help prevent injury and strengthen those areas. “Matt DeLancey is the most high energy person I’ve ever met in “He’s really enthusiastic about the program; he’s tough and never gives us a break. “We had a game Friday and Sunday and now a quick turnaround Wednesday against a really good Tennessee team. During the summer, he prepared us for this kind of quick turnaround so Gators ready to face Vols after short turnaroundSEE VOLLEYBALL, PAGE 15Look at Florida’s “Keys to Sucsee one assignment for the offense: succeed in the red zone. Of course, the chart as a whole wins and losses. It only consists of four keys. But since Urban Meyer brought his super spread option to Gainesville in 2005, the amount of points Florida’s offense posted has directly correlated with the group’s red-zone success. In the Age of Urban, the offense’s peak seasons were 2007 and 2008, when the Gators averaged 43.1 points per game and scored on 89 percent of red-zone possessions. But in Meyer’s other four seasons, Florida has scored on just 75 percent of trips inside the opponents’ 20-yard line, making this year’s red-zone efnot because of how low it is but because of how little it tells fans about the offense. Why are the Gators managing only 27.6 points per game, the lowest since 2002? Yes, Florida’s red-zone offense has been bad. But, by comparison, the team’s offense outside the opponent’s 20-yard line has been much worse. This season’s offense is scoring about the same amount of points (18 per game) inside the red zone as Tim Tebow and Friends did last year. But the 2009 unit averaged 36 total Big plays bigger than red zoneSEE TYLER, PAGE 15 Tyler JettThe Jett Streamtjett@alligator.org Twitter: @iam_tyler MEN’S BASKETBALLBy GREG LUCAAlligator Writergluca@alligator.org After entering last season with serious questions about the point guard position, coach Billy Donovan believes he has four viable answers to start the new year. With Erving Walker returning for his junior year, Chandler Parsons and Kenny Boynton developing their point guard skills and Scottie Wilbekin making the jump from high school, the Gators have plenty of options at the one spot. “We feel like, outside of Erving, we have some other options we can use if Erving is maybe getting taken out of the game, or we need to try to free him up to shoot the ball a Last season Walker started 33 of the team’s 34 games, averaging a team-high 4.9 assists per game and establishing a 2-1 assist-toturnover ratio. But, as the season wore on, teams started to put more pressure on Walker in the backcourt. This forced him to pass over defendSoutheastern Conference’s shortest player (5foot-8). In response, the Gators would usually call on 6-foot-10 forward Chandler Parsons to run the point. Parsons proved to be an effective option, averaging 2.6 assists per game and posting a 1.3-1 assist to turnover ratio for the season. Throughout the offseason Parsons has worked on making those areas of his game even stronger in an attempt to become a more complete player. “I want to be able to do to pass, shoot, score inside, score outside, defend, play the four if I have to, play the point if I have to. So this summer and last year I just tried to become the most versatile player Parsons has displayed this versatility in UF optimistic about PG depthParsons SEE HOOPS, PAGE 15

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 20, 2010 ALLIGATOR, 15Matt Tripp / Alligator StaffUF guard Erving Walker played a team-high 32.9 minutes per game last season. The Gators want to lighten Walker’s workload this year. HE MADE THE COMMENTS AFTER KENTUCKY’S WIN AGAINST SOUTH CAROLINA ON SATURDAY.THE ASSOCIATED PRESS LEXINGTON, Ky. — Kentucky wide receiver Randall Cobb apologized Tuesday for using Twitter to lash out at fans following an upset of South Carolina last weekend. Cobb sent out a series of tweets following the game in which he chastised fans for coming late, leaving early and being more concerned about the school’s basketball team. He said it took him “two or three minutes” after sending the tweets to realize he had spoken irresponsibly. He almost immediately removed the messages. Cobb, who scored the game-winning touchdown with just over a minute to go, says .9 percent” of the fans are great and that he made a mistake. “I just took a small chunk and made it something big,” Cobb said. “I can’t do that. I made a mistake. I’m a man, I admit my mistake, and I want to come out and let everybody know that I’m sorry. I hope (the fans) can forgive me.” The junior wide receiver has earned a reputation as one of college football’s most versatile players. Through seven games this season, he has touchdowns, three as a passer and one punt return touchdown. His 24-yard touchdown catch with just over a minute left against South Carolina gave Kentucky its lead. His tweets after the game said: “To all the fans: loved seein Yall come late, love hear ing Yall tell us we suck during the game, love that we have to play against our own fans too! Love that we can’t pack the house when we play the 10 team in the nation. It means that much more to me. I love my team! Brother hood they got my back n I got they back. The rest of Yall can get ready for bball season! Don’t say u support n do all those things! Yeah I’m level 9 (upset)... so deal w it! Not blaming all but Yall know who I’m talking abtYall know I love bbn but something needed to be said.” Head coach Joker Phillips defended Cobb, saying that a college junior doesn’t always know how to take criticism in stride. negative things that come at me,” Phillips said. Wide receiver La’Rod King, who scored two touchdowns Saturday, sent a tweet on Monday night which said: “Welp looks like no more twitter for us.” He said Tuesday that was his decision and that the situation had been blown out of propor tion. “All that stuff is, that’s our personal life, but people have their opinion and it got out,” King said. “As an athlete, we got to realize we’re held to a higher standard.” Cobb apologizes for criticizing fans via TwitterGators hope Wilbekin can contribute right awaythe early stages of practice, spending time at point guard in addition to his normal duties as a forward. Even if Donovan opts to use Par sons only in the frontcourt, the senior expects to show his full range of abilities. “In our offense if I get the rebound I’m gonna go with it, I’m gonna push the ball,” Parsons said. “If I end up having the ball up there during our half-court set, I can run it comfortably.” Another player trying his hand in the point guard role is sophomore Kenny Boynton, who led the Gators in scoring while starting in 33 games last season primarily as a shooting guard. Boynton has spent a large por ing point guard across from Walker in Florida’s intrasquad scrimmages, and has found the adjustment to be simpler than he anticipated. “So far it’s been a lot easier than I thought, I feel very comfortable,” Boynton said. “I think I’ve been making good decisions at the point guard position.” A fourth option the Gators have is freshman Scottie Wilbekin, whose toughness and stamina have impressed Donovan so far. Donovan believes Wilbekin will be able to produce off the bench in his rookie season despite joining the Gators after only three years of high school at Gainesville The Rock. “I really believe right now, after two practices, just physically and conditioning-wise that he is going to be able to contribute to our team,” Donovan said. “How many minutes and how much I’m not sure, but I do think that he’s going to be a positive piece for our team going forward.” HOOPS, from page 14we’re not physically tired.” Fleming will be busy against the Volunteers, which lead the SEC in hitting percentage. The Gators will once again count on middle blockers Lauren Bledsoe and Cassandra Anderson to combat those two areas of the game. In Knoxville, Tenn., Bledsoe recorded eight blocks as Anderson pitched age. Both anchor a Florida team that leads the conference in blocks. “Tennessee always plays its best volleyball in the second half of the SEC season and they have two of the premier offensive players in the league,” Wise said. “They’ve always played us well in the O’Connell Center.” the Gators held Nikki Fowler — third in the SEC in kills — to just eight kills on .097 hitting. Setter Kelly Murphy will also play a large role in tonight’s match. Murphy, who was named the SEC Offensive Player of the Week for her performances last weekend, notched a triple-double with 19 kills, 25 assists, 14 digs and four blocks against Tennessee in September. That performance earned her player of the week honors. “We have a great opportunity for our program and the sport of women’s volleyball to play on a national stage with ESPNU,” Wise said. “It’s not something you can say no to.” UF leads conference in blocks VOLLEYBALL, from page 14points. Big plays have made the biggest differ ence between the two groups. Florida aver aged almost 18 points outside the red zone last year while this season’s group is scoring less than 10 per game, the worst rate since Meyer became coach. Translation: the Gators aren’t explosive. Jeff Demps’ leg injury and Chris Rainey’s suspension have hampered the running game. Through seven games last season, the duo had each busted a pair of long touchdown runs. This season, Demps has scored on two big runs while Rainey has been sidelined for buckwild texting. But the difference in long runs negligible. And, with scores coming from three interception returns and one kickoff return, Florida’s defense and special teams are pitching in more than they did last year. This really leaves only one scapegoat: the dump-n-run passing game. John Brantley has only thrown one touchdown from beyond the 20 — in the season opener on a fourth-quarter Hail Mary to Rainey in double coverage. The play was so Les-Miles lucky that Meyer looked on with disgust as his team celebrated the score. But at least they could celebrate then. Through seven games last season, Tebow awkwardly windmilled the ball for seven touchdowns longer than 20 yards. But if Brantley is the culprit, he isn’t per forming the unintentional heist solo. Sure, worst (or eighth best, depending on your outlook). But of Tebow’s seven long-ball, big-nuts touchdowns, only two were directed at receivers on this year’s team. Both of those went to Deonte Thompson. And would you blame Brantley if he forgot to look in Thompson’s direction for the rest of the season? You can’t defend Florida’s red-zone problems. But that’s not the only area of concern. The Gators have struggled inside the 20 before and still scored in bunches. the end zone from far away, particularly with the ball coming off Brantley’s right arm, because Florida has not outscored opponents enough this season. And that’s the greatest “Key to Success.” TYLER, from page 14 Vo lle yball Cobb “I think I’ve been making good decisions at the point guard position.”Kenny Boynton UF sophomore

By TOM GREENAlligator Writertgreen@alligator.org Five days after decommitting from Florida, A.C. Leonard made his college decision late Monday. And for the third time in less than a year, the four-star Jacksonville University Christian School tight end is a Gator. But this time the nation’s fourth-rated tight end, according to Rivals.com, said he’s sticking with his choice. “Lately people have been coming into my life for the wrong reasons,” Leonard told Scout.com. “They have been giving me bad advice, but now I have had time to sit down and think things through. I am a Gator and I am shutting the whole process down.” Leonard decommitted from Florida last week in the wake of UF’s loss to LSU on Oct. 9 — the team’s second in a row. The tight end attended the game and reportedly left The Swamp disappointed with the Gators’ offense, saying the 33-29 off his oral commitment to the Gators, though. After initially deciding on UF last November, Leonard decommitted following Urban Meyer’s decision to step down as head coach, only to recommit shortly thereafter. When Leonard reopened the recruiting process last week, he was also consider ing offers from Nebraska, Alabama and visits to Nebraska on Sept. 24 and to Alabama on Oct. 1, and University Christian School coach Heath Nivens said last week that Leonard planned to take his remainMiami. But with the four-star prospect closing the recruiting process and planning to enroll at UF in January, it is doubtful Leonard will take the remaining visits. While Leonard will probably be donning a Florida jersey when spring practice begins, it is uncertain if he will suit up again this season for University Christian School. Reports surfaced Tuesday afternoon that Leonard had been ruled ineligible for the remainder of his senior season by that took place when University Christian played Jacksonville Episcopal High on Friday. However, calls to Nivens and the FHturned Tuesday. Players unhappy?: According to a report on the website MrSEC.com, Ellenwood (Ga.) Cedar Grove High athlete VinFlorida for the LSU game, asked current players on the UF roster if they were happy with their decisions to become Gators. Dallas, who committed to Tennessee on Friday, reportedly said some of the players weren’t happy and didn’t “think Florida is the right place for them.” The three-star athlete refuted the report on his Facebook page and said he wouldn’t be giving any interviews until January. “To the Florida people that was not a true statement about Florida,” Dallas posted on his Facebook. “I really really didn’t like how the reporter did me today.” Oral commitments are non-binding until a national letter of intent is signed on or after National Signing Day on Feb. 2. 16, ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 20, 2010 Harrison Diamond / Alligator StaffTight end A.C.
