Democrat Alex Sink was refusing to concede
the gubernatorial race to Rick Scott.
As of 12:45 a.m. today, the race for governor
was still, ..:li.- I. ,.ii,.J .:.i.1..1 Sources from the
Sink campaign said they believed the final tal-

Rick Scott, a wealthy businessman, had a
slight lead over Chief Financial Officer Alex
Sink. In Alachua County, Sink won with 63
percent of the vote over Scott's 36 percent.
See complete coverage on Page 8.

Patricia Aguerrevere, a fourth-year art his-
tory student at UF, said she wasn't happy with
either of the candidates but voted for Scott.
"It's more of a lesser-of-two-evils kind of
thing," she said. "I'm a conservative and Rick
Scott was more conservative than Alex Sink. It
was more that Rick Scott would do less dam-
age. They're both bad."
Kristin Klein, president of UF College Dem-
ocrats, said Scott winning would be a tragedy
for Florida, adding, "I think people [would]
quickly recognize the mistake.".
And while the Democrats were trounced
across the state, Klein said she was happy with
how hard the UF Democrats campaigned.
Unlike the gubernatorial race, the outcome
of the Senate race was called by the Associated
Press just after 8 p.m. - only minutes after the
polls closed in the panhandle. Marco Rubio
won 48 percent in the state, compared to Gov.
Charlie Crist's 27 percent and Congressman
Kendrick Meek's 20 percent.
Rubio also won Alachua County with 38
percent, while Crist had 30 percent and Meek
finished third with 28 percent.

Cops: 'Superheroes' brawl at Connecticut parking garage


STAMFORD, Conn. (AP) - It is as-
sault charges for Spider-Man and Captain
America, and breach of peace for Poison
Ivy. Police in Connecticut said a man
dressed as Captain America and another
as Spider-Man have been arrested after
getting into a fight in Stamford over the
Halloween weekend.
Stamford Police Lt. Elizabeth Erickson
said officers found 25-year-old Michael
Sanchez, dressed as Captain America,


beating the father of 21-year-old Vincent
DeCarlo, sporting a Spider-Man costume,
in a parking garage Sunday morning.
The Stamford Advocate reported that
DeCarlo allegedly punched Sanchez of
Stamford as police tried to break up the
scuffle.
DeCarlo's girlfriend, 18-year-old Ni-
cole Bitterli of Toms River, N.J., dressed as
Poison Ivy, also hit Sanchez.
It was unclear if any had attorneys.

Provost pitches tuition


change at SG meeting


By MEREDITH RUTLAND
Alligator Contributing Writer
Senators heard a little bit about
block tuition during Tuesday's
meeting.
University Provost Joe Glover
told senators that students would
still be given Bright Futures tuition
assistance based on how many credit
hours they take, but they would be
charged a flat fee.
He said UF's decision to imple-
ment or not implement block tuition
is separate from the state-funded
Bright Futures program, and that
Bright Futures would not be changed
based on what UF decides.
He said students with Florida
Prepaid would not notice a differ-
ence with their financial aid either.
The Senate also unanimously ap-


proved a resolution calling for the
expansion of sustainable education
opportunities on campus, in the
forms of sustainability minors and
majors and sustainability-related
courses.
"We really need to have a
push for more sustainability
within education."
Bailey Kilbourne
Head of Gators Going Green.

According to the resolution, sena-
tors hope UF can achieve zero waste
by 2015 and carbon neutrality by
2025.
"We really need to have a push
for more sustainability within edu-
cation," said Bailey K II:..11 i, an
author of the bill and agency head
for Gators Going Green.


Man accused in terror plot case held in NY without bail


* NO COURT DATE WAS SET.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK - A man accused of lying
about a failed plot to join the U.S. military
and team up with insurgents in Iraq was
jailed without bail in his first court appear-
ance Tuesday since his arrest last month.
Abdel Hameed Shehadeh, a skinny 21-
year-old from Staten Island who was arrest-
ed in Hawaii, didn't enter a plea to charges
he made false statements to U.S. authorities
investigating an international terrorism.
There was no immediate response to a
message left Tuesday with his attorney.


A criminal complaint unsealed last
month said the FBI and the New York Po-
lice Department had been investigating
Shehadeh "and several other individuals
in connection with a plot to travel overseas
and wage violent jihad against the United
States and other coalition military forces."
The complaint alleged that Shehadeh,
who was born in the United States, initially
caught the attention of U.S. authorities by
buying a one-way ticket to Pakistan in June
2008. Once he arrived there, Pakistani offi-
cials wouldn't allow him into the country
and he returned to New York. In October
2006, the complaint said, Shehadeh went to
Times Square to try to join the Army. It said
when a recruiter asked him if he'd traveled


overseas, he lied and said he'd only been to
Israel. Later that month, Shehadeh tried to
fly from Newark, N.J., to Jordan, where he
again was denied entry. Once he returned
to the United States on a flight to Detroit,
counterterrorism investigators confronted
him about what they say were radical writ-
ings and videos he posted on the Internet.
The complaint said Sheha-
Public deh insisted he tried to go to
Health Pakistan for religious, not mili-
tary, training. But witnesses
who knew him told investigators that he in-
structed them that it was the duty of Mus-
lims to fight jihad - and that signing up in
Times Square was the best way to achieve
his goal.


Shehadeh "informed (one witness) that
he hoped to be deployed to Iraq," the com-
plaint said. "At the time he was applying
to join the military, Shehadeh told (the wit-
ness), when he arrived in Iraq, he intended
to commit 'treason' and fight United States
soldiers."
The complaint said Shehadeh traveled
to Hawaii in April 2009. There, he bought
an airline ticket to Dubal in June, but was
intercepted by FBI agents who told him he
was on a "no fly" list. In subsequent inter-
views, he allegedly admitted he had hoped
to join the Taliban and receive "guerrilla
warfare" and "bomb-making" training, the
complaint said.
No new court date was set.

UF ACADEMICS

UF researcher discovers human ties to tree rodents


By ERIC HENELY
Alligator Contributing Writer

A small, 55-million-year-old,
tree-climbing rodent might be
distantly related to you.
A study co-authored by a UF
researcher that describes the cra-
nial anatomy of the now-extinct
species was published Oct. 11 in
the Zoological Journal of the Lin-
nean Society.
Researchers have found that
Labidolemur kayi shares a com-
mon ancestor with tree shrews,
rodents, lemurs and primates.
"This gives us a window of
insight into the pattern of evo-
lution that led to humankind,"
Doug Boyer said during a phone
interview.
Boyer, who is a co-author of
the study, is the assistant profes-
sor of anthropology and archeol-
ogy at Brooklyn College. He said
the study was prompted by the
most complete skeleton of the
species ever found.
When they find a Labidol-
emur, it's usually just a tooth, or
the cranium is usually squashed
completely flat, said Jonathan
Bloch, another co-author of the
study. He is the associate curator
of vertebrate paleontology at UF.
The remains were found over
10 years ago in Clarks Fork Ba-
sin, Wyo. However, removing
the fossil from the limestone that
surrounded it was a tedious pro-
cess.


After the fossil had been pre-
pared from the limestone it sat in,
researchers took high resolution
CT scans of it, Bloch said. The
scans involve taking thousands
of X-rays and blending them to-
gether to create one seamless
image that can be viewed from
multiple angles. For every inch
of fossil, they take close to 1,000
X-rays.
Once all of the scans were
complete, they were able to get
a glimpse at what the animal
looked like. It resembled a tiny
squirrel with big ears, long fin-
gers and a bare tail with a puff of
fur on the end, Bloch said.
"Based on the large brain size,
we were also able to tell that this
animal was fairly intelligent,"
Boyer said.
Using a method known as
comparative morphology, re-
searchers were even able to tell
how and what L. kayi preferred
to eat, Boyer said. Comparative
morphology takes bone struc-
tures of extinct animals and com-
pares them to bone structures of
creatures that are living.
Bloch said that even the way
the animal ate was bizarre. L.
kayi used its long fingers to tap
on trees and its large ears to lis-
ten. Once it found a hollow spot,
it would gnaw at the bark of the
tree to find grubs inside it.
It filled an ecological niche
that woodpeckers now fill.
He said that another thing that


Kristen Grace/Florida Museum of Natural History
UF vertebrate paleontologist Jonathan Bloch examines the full skeleton of Labidolemur kayi, a 55-mil-
lion-year-old extinct mammal with odd ecological adaptations.


makes the L. kayi species notable
is the time in which they lived.
Dinosaurs roamed the earth and
dominated most environments
until 65 million years ago when
they went extinct.
"With the extinction of the
dinosaurs, things really opened
up," Bloch said. "Mammals were


given a much greater opportunity
to excel."
The first mammals that took
over from the dinosaurs provide
the basic blueprint that nearly
all mammals follow to this day,
Bloch said.
He said that this study focuses
primarily on the skull. Within


the next year they hope to have
a follow-up study to analyze the
entire skeleton.
Even though L. kayi shares a
common ancestor with humans,
Boyer emphasizes just how far
back this ancestor is.
"It is really quite far down the
line," he said.

on-campus living.
"You can't get any closer to

Campus dining halls


adopt meatless Mon.


They will offer

vegan options

starting Nov. 8

By MINA RADMAN
Alligator Writer

Vegans and vegetarians will be
delighted with the new "Meat-Free
Monday" campaign at Gator Din-
ing locations.
Starting Nov. 8, Gator Corner
Dining and Fresh Food Company
will provide a variety of vegan
meal options Mondays as part of
a nationwide campaign to educate
students on the environmental and
health impacts of meat consump-
tion.
"There's a lot of links between
heavy meat consumption, heart dis-
ease and other things," said Dana
Falstad, sustainability manager for
Aramark, Gator Dining's food ser-
vice provider.
Falstad also stated that the car-
bon footprint of meat consumption
is much higher than that of vegeta-
bles, due to its high energy intake.
Thirty other universities across


the nation have joined the cam-
paign, which has been publicly en-
dorsed by Meatless Monday, a non-
profit organization that works to
promote meat-free eating, as well
as GatorWell, People for the Ethical
Treatment of Animals and Gators
for a Sustainable Campus.

"There's a lot of links be-
tween heavy meat consump-
tion, heart disease and other
things."
Dana Falstad
sustainability manager for Aramark

While the dining halls will still
serve meat Mondays, students will
have the option to have meals pre-
pared without it. There will also be
a vegan breakfast option available.
For Monday, the dining hall
menu includes tofu salad, Mediter-
ranean pasta and vegetarian pizza.
Over the next few weeks, Ara-
mark and Gator Dining Services
plan to expand the campaign to in-
clude the Home Zone and Orange
& Brew at the Reitz Union as well
as the Racquet Club Dining Hall,
with a vegetarian menu on request
at each location.


Bombings, mortar


strikes kill 76 people


across Baghdad


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

BAGHDAD - Rapid-fire
bombings and mortar strikes
killed 76 people and wounded
more than 200 across Baghdad's
myriad neighborhoods Tuesday,
demonstrating the insurgents'
ability to carry out coordinated
strikes from one side of the capi-
tal to the other.
The attack - blasts in at least
13 separate neighborhoods -
was clearly designed to hit ci-
vilians at restaurants and cafes
where many Iraqis were gathered
to enjoy the warm evening. The
sophistication and the targets -
Shites - suggested that al-Qal-
da-linked Sunni militants were
responsible for the deadliest day
in Iraq since May.
The strikes, two days after
the bloody siege of a downtown
church, were stunning in their
scope - indicating a high degree
of coordination and complex-
ity from an insurgency that just
a few months ago U.S. and Iraqi
officials were saying was all but
defeated.
"They say the situation is un-
der the control. Where is their
control?" said Hussein al-Saiedi,


a 26-year-old resident of Bagh-
dad's sprawling Sadr City slum,
where 21 people were killed
when a parked car blew up near
a market in Tuesday's deadliest
bombing.
"We were just standing on
the street when we heard a loud
noise, and then saw smoke and
pieces of cars, falling from the
sky," al-Saiedi said. People were
fleeing the site in panic, franti-
cally calling the names of their
relatives and friends."
The bombings began at about
6:15 p.m. and lasted for hours.
The assailants
National used booby-
News trapped cars and a
motorcycle, road-
side bombs and mortars. Though
10 neighborhoods targeted were
home to mostly Shites, a couple
of strikes hit Sunni communities
as well.
In addition to the 76 dead, 232
people were wounded, according
to police and hospital officials
who spoke on condition of ano-
nymity because they were not au-
thorized to speak to the media.

and destabilize the government.
"The criminal acts that tar-
geted the Christians at the Lady
of Salvation church and the ci-
vilians in Baghdad are political
blasts intending to halt the form-
ing of the government," he said
in a statement. Iraq has been
without a new government since


the March 7 elections, leaving a
political vacuum that many fear
insurgents are trying to exploit.
The White House condemned
the "vicious violence" and of-
fered sympathy to the victims'
families and all Iraqis.
"We have confidence that the
people of Iraq will remain stead-
fast in their rejection of efforts
by extremists to spark sectarian
tension," said National Security
Council spokesman Mike Ham-
mer. "These attacks will not stop


Iraq's progress. The United States
stands with the people of Iraq and
remains committed to our strong
and long-term partnership."
There was no immediate claim
of responsibility, but suspicion
fell on al-Qaida.
"We do not have any conclu-
sive information at this time as
to the responsible parties but this
seems to be typical AQI (al-Qaida
in Iraq) tactics," said Lt. Col. Eric
Bloom, a U.S. military spokes-
man.

Shock the vote

Florida's 2000 recount

shock has taught us little

Florida's embarrassment 10 years ago hasn't taught us
much.
With every election, there comes an equal and labo-
rious series of voting mishaps that continue to plague our
great democracy.
By Tuesday afternoon, reports of electronic voting ma-
chines, -"j-'j1' --...Il, the most accurate, inaccurately recording
votes were already reported.
And reports of such inaccuracies were apparently plagu-
ing the Silver State as multiple reports began to flood across
Nevada.
Voters across the state, who we can only assume were try-
ing to bare their tea-party teeth one last time, reported large
discrepancies with the electronic voting machines already
voting for Democratic Sen. Harry Reid.
Swaths of North Carolina voters reported computers inac-
curately recorded votes for the entirely wrong political party.
And some supervisors of elections in Pennsylvania have
thrown out hundreds of ballots because of reported signa-
ture problems.
You'd think after Florida's 36-day recount debacle that
threw "hanging chad" and Pat Buchanan into our popular
lexicon and left the nation hanging in the balance would
have taught the country a few lessons.
Inevitably, by tonight there will be recounts demanded
and more voting issues reported to spur even more result
challenges.
And when recounts happen in states that throw out bal-
lots because of "signature problems," we've learned nothing
from Florida's recount embarrassment.


Fat chance


The Brits have a big
problem. In fact, they
have an extra-extra-
extra-extra-large problem to
wrap their minds and belts
around.
The British retailer High
& Mighty has just introduced
the country's biggest no-spe-
clal-order-required suit, an
XXXXL frock intended for a
60-inch waist.
And, by the way, 60 inch-
es is five feet when not using
that all-too-easy metric sys-
tem everyone else seems to
love. A 60-inch waist equates
to a height where children
are deemed too short to ride
many roller coasters.
And when we have peo-
ple with waistlines longer
than a fifth-grade kid, we've
got a problem.
At a time when, across the
pond, obesity puts a $78 bil-
lion price tag on America's


health care, and when Mis-
sissippi, the longtime holder
of the dubious title of the
fattest state in the union, has
an obesity rate of more than
one in three people, we have
a problem.
Back to the English High
& Mighty problem, which
we can only assume does
not bode well for the mak-
ers of the whitey tighties,
recent studies suggest one in
five British men has a waist
larger than 38 inches.
While we haven't seen
any marketable XXXXS suits,
we wonder if stores like High
& Mighty are actively fight-
ing the obesity pandemic or
encouraging it by making a
60-inch-waistline suit.
Regardless of the answer,
we have a serious multi-
billion dollar problem on
our grease-laden, Cheetos-
stained hands.

Tea Partiers are sipping on Kool-Aid


Congratulations to the 112th United States Congress
and the new governor of the great state of Florida.
By the time this is printed, we should know
who most of you are. For those of you who kept us up all
night, thanks a lot. Wait, who am I kidding? The percent-
age of students at UF who stayed up late on election night
is surely less than 5 percent, right? And only a bit more
will actually vote in the midterms despite the virtuous ef-
forts of local political organizations, campaigns and in-
dependent groups like Rock the Vote. More students are
interested in the end of attack ads between Steve Oelrich
and Perry McGriff or between Alex Sink and Rick Scott
than to actually help decide which one of them will be
governing all of us.
Maybe I'm weird, but I was incredibly excited to vote
in this election as it was my first since turning 18. Further-
more, I consider myself a center-left kind of guy, so based
on the political climate this year, "excited" isn't a word
that comes to most of my like-minded colleagues' minds
when thinking about a midterm election that was sched-
uled to dissipate the Democratic party's supermajority.
But just wait, Republicans, here's some advice you
could have used. Republicans, you shot yourselves in
the foot with candidates like Christine O'Donnell, whose
largest claim to fame was witchcraft, and Sharron Angle,
who makes last year's incarnation of Joaquin Phoenix
look like a media darling.
It's my personal belief this is not a mandate against the
Obama Administration. The chief issue behind this past
election is, yet again, the economy. After the stimulus
package in 2009 and the official end of the recession back
in June, consumers just still aren't confident.
The Republicans need to be careful, however. The Tea
Party might surge to power based on two major issues:


j cutting government spending and
lowering taxes, but most Tea Par-
tiers are more socially conservative
than the average bear as well. I find
it hard to believe the Tea Party is a
sustainable national movement. It
Sean Quinn works well on a local, grassroots
letters@alligator.org level, where candidates can go
head-to-head against that "Wash-
ington politician" or that "Tallahassee politician" who
foolishly spent taxpayer money. But when Tea Partiers go
national, you end up with O'Donnell, Angle, Sarah Palm
and Michele Bachmann. Not only are all four of these can-
didates gaffe-prone, but their election into national office,
God forbid the office of the president of the U.S., could
result in turmoil both here and abroad.
Why's that? The Tea Party stems out of legitimate con-
cern and a legitimate political perspective, one I don't
subscribe to, but not an unreasonable political view.
However, it's the supporters who often throw their own
movement under the bus. Either by displaying signs with
racial slurs, Photoshopping the president of the U.S. with
a Hitler mustache or screaming socialism in an attempt
to be the anti-vanguard, the movement loses credibility
daily.
So a few congratulations are in order. Pop that cham-
pagne, Republicans. Don't adjust your television, Speak-
er John Boehner is really that orange (Watch out Snooki!)
and get ready for the sprint to the center. Democrats,
know that Obama has to compromise if he wants to be
re-elected, but Republicans should know that Tea Partiers
aren't a shoo-in either.

Letters to the Editor
Media's credibility falling
Mediocre journalism does more harm than
good.
Tuesday's article on Google's autonomous ve-
hicles is the example I will pick on, but I mean no
disrespect to either the writer of the piece or those
interviewed.
First, the interviewees were not qualified to give
valuable insight on the issue. Why not interview an
on-campus expert such as Carl Crane of CIMAR,
who has been working with autonomous vehicles
for years?
The interviewee selection in this article in spe-
cific is similar to asking a cosmetic surgeon and a
medical student for insight on an experimental can-
cer treatment.
The interviewees may be good at what they do,
but they are not qualified to speak about other top-
ics.
While it might be true that a professor and a stu-
dent both expressed concerns about the Google ve-
hicle, the plural voice of skepticism indicated in the
subtitle is inaccurate and harmful.
This gives the public the impression there should
be concern about these vehicles, thus hampering
any chance for safer roads. Journalism should be
treated more like science where results can be veri-
fled and repeated.
In other words, articles need to have better sam-
pling, less bias and a bit of critical thinking in their
design.
Seeing this every day, I am quite disappointed
with the media.
For better or worse, the media have a lot of in-
fluence on popular opinion.
We would be better off if the voice of the media
took a logical approach to informing us instead of
presenting random blathering to fill space and meet
deadlines.

WikiLeaks-released
The release of nearly 400,000 confidential Iraq war docu-
ments on Oct. 22 by the WikiLeaks website revealed a
startling image of the secret history of the war in Iraq.
The documents contain details of events reported by the
United States military and provide evidence of systematic tor-
ture and rape used as weapons of warfare. Sixty percent of the
deaths registered in the documents are civilians.
The documents reveal the use of indiscriminate and dis-
proportionate force used and condoned by the US military.
They also raise substantial questions concerning war crimes.
This leak has been the largest release of classified military
documents in history.
Critics argue the release of this sensitive information will
jeopardize US military operations and be used by opposition
forces to seek out and kill Iraqi civilian informants working
with the US military.
Supporters of the whistleblower website contend the
documents contain information the public deserves to know.
According to the documents, as many as 15,000 Iraqi civilian
deaths were previously unaccounted for.
When President Obama was elected, he promised to con-
duct his administration with transparency. The amount of se-
crets revealed within the documents WikiLeaks released flies
in the face of such promises. Obama's promise for transpar-
ency has gone the way of his promise to close Guantanamo
Bay.
To be fair, the files document the Iraq war during a time
Obama was not president, but that doesn't excuse him from
failing to hold the Bush administration accountable.
Secrets and lies are what paraded the U.S. into the war in
Iraq. The WikiLeaks files reveal that secrets and lies have only
prolonged that war.

Republicans take local seats, mirror state


* STEVE OELRICH WON BY MORE
THAN 10,000 VOTES.

BY C.J. Pruner
Alligator Staff Writer

Keeping in lockstep with the wave of
Republican revival that swept elections
across the nation and state, local Demo-
crats seeking office took a beating at the
polls Tuesday.
In a District 14 Florida State Senate
race marked with heated political ex-
change, Republican incumbent Steve Oel-
rich carried the conservative momentum,
defeating Democratic challenger Perry C.
McGriff Jr. by more than 10,000 votes.
Addressing a crowd of support-
ers at the Hampton Inn in downtown
Gainesville to watch election results,
a disappointed McGriff attempted to
make peace with the defeat while thank-
ing campaign staff and supporters for
their effort.
Although he acknowledged a sense of
hurt at some of Oelrich's campaign ads,
especially one regarding McGriff's posi-
tion on adoption, McGriff said that he
gave Oelrich a congratulatory call that
was "short and to the point" and told
supporters that he would continue to be
involved in public service.
"The Lord has wrapped his arms
around me so I'll be OK," he said. "Life


will go on."
The race for County Commission Dis-
trict 4 produced one of the more surpris-
ing results of the night as Democratic
candidate Cynthia Chestnut was defeat-
ed by Republican Susan Baird by more
than 5,000 votes.

"The Lord has wrapped his arms
around me, so I'll be OK."
Perry C. McGriff Jr.
Democratic nominee

But it wasn't all gloom for Democrats
locally, as Lee Pinkoson won his contest
for a seat on the County Commission Dis-
trict 2. He defeated the Republican can-
didate, Jim Gabriel, by a margin of more
than 8,000 votes.
Jon Reiskind, the chairman of the Ala-
chua County Democratic Party Executive
Committee, said that while a Republican
backlash was to be expected, the results
still served as a disappointment for a
party that, he believes, needs to recon-
nect with the public in order to improve
from its midterm showing.
Although Reiskind acknowledged
that Democrats have their work cut out
for them between now and the next elec-
tion, he remains optimistic that the party
can recover.
"It's a sad day for the Democrats but
it's not a tragic day," he said.

Rubio Senate win fueled by anti-Obama mood


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

CORAL GABLES (AP) - Tea party favorite
Marco Rubio capped his dramatic rise with an
easy win Tuesday over Gov. Charlie Crist and
U.S. Rep. Kendrick Meek in the race for Florida's
open Senate seat, keeping it with the GOP
With 78 percent of precincts reporting, Rubio
had about 50 percent of the vote, to 29 percent for
Crist, who left the Republican Party earlier this


year to run as an independent when polls showed
him trailing in a GOP primary. Democratic nomi-
nee Meek had 19.6 percent.
"We make a great mistake if we believe that
tonight these results are somehow an embrace of
the Republican party," Rubio told supporters at a
rally, referring to his and other GOP wins around
the country. "What they are is a second chance,
a second chance for Republicans to be what they
said they were going to be not so long ago."


Sen.-elect Marco Rubio, R-Fla., thanks supporters in Coral Gables with his daughter Aman-
da, 7, and son Anthony, 4, after winning his senate bid Tuesday.


Rubio, a former speaker of the Florida House,
was given little chance to defeat Crist when he
announced his candidacy last year. Rubio will re-
place George LeMieux, who was appointed to the
seat last year after Mel Martinez resigned.
Moments before the race was called, former
Gov. Jeb Bush walked into the room where Ru-
bio was watching returns and said, "Congratula-
tions!"
"Why? Do you guys know something we
don't?" Rubio replied. When news agencies de-
clared him the winner, the room erupted with
roars. Rubio kept looking at the television and
joked. "C'mon! I'm trying to hear about Ken-
tucky!"
Bush said he supported Rubio from the begin-
ning.
"I'm so proud of him and he ran a spectacular
race. "It's a great day for the conservative cause.
New people with new thinking, new ideas - 21st
century solutions."
Rubio built momentum through tea party ral-
lies, driving around the state on a tight budget
and often without staff to talk to any conserva-
tive group that would listen. His message was
consistent: President Barack Obama's domestic
spending and health care policies are a disaster
and the nation will spiral downward if spending
isn't controlled.
"When you're 35 points down in the polls and
the only people who think you can win live in
your house, and four of them are under the age
of 10, you better know why your running," Rubio
said in his victory speech.
Party leaders in Tallahassee and Washington
tried to force him out of the race so then-Repub-
lican Crist could walk to the nomination. But Ru-
bio believed Crist wasn't a principled conserva-
tive and used the image of the governor hugging
Obama at a rally to push for the $787 billion stim-
ulus package to whittle away at Crist's support.
For months, Crist acted as if he were the only
candidate in the race. Then Rubio's fundraising
and poll numbers increased to the point that Crist
was the underdog. Meanwhile, Meek struggled to
gain traction as the media focused on the intense
battle for the Republican nomination.

Barber moves to


smaller space

By JON SILMAN
Alligator Staff Writer

For 37 years, the pepper-haired man with the oval specta-
cles has been cutting Gators' hair. Because of tough times - or
maybe in spite of them - Jay Jarrell, 59, moved his Reitz Union
Barber Shop to a -.. il. II. - ; , :'- i .... r the size of his old waiting
area. Before the move, he said, he was barely treading water.
"The last ten years have been a real struggle to break even,"
he said.
"The last ten years have been a real struggle to
break even."
Jay Jarrell
Owner of Reitz Union Barber Shop

He anticipates the new space, which opened Monday, will
be better for business.
He'd been asking the Reitz Union management for a small-
er place for some time, and when the old Freshens spot opened
up, he jumped on it. The space is smaller than he would've
liked, but "you can't pick and choose space like that in a build-
ing like this."
Jarrell has significant ties to the Gator nation. He gradu-
ated with a degree in psychology, his son and daughter were
Gators and his parents were season ticket holders. He hopes
that his grandchildren will attend UF as well.
He likes cutting students' hair because they're bright and
have a clear way of communicating what they want.
He's been a barber for a long time, and his job provides him
with the means to live, but what he does doesn't define him or
his happiness.
"Some people say you have to love what you do to be a

happy person, but I'm just not convinced," he said.
For him, the simple things are enough. He loves his church
and his hobbies. The first haircut he gave in the new space was
to his 8-month-old grandson.
His dad always told him that as a barber he may not always
have steak, but he'd always have hamburger.
He wants to cut his hours when he turns 67. Sometimes


he's on his feet for 10 hours a day, and he knows he can't work
like that forever. For now, he's enjoying the smaller workload
of the new space and the financial ease - the rent is $375 now,
$1,525 less than before.
"If I'm blessed enough to be in good health, I'd work until
I'm 72 or so," he said, "at which time I'd like to be able to shoot
my age in golf."

Donovan to test tall lineup in exhibition game


By GREG LUCA

IVIaLL 11*1PPJ / mll^ uII adLl* L
UF coach Billy Donovan is expected to use centers Vernon Macklin (above) and
Patric Young together tonight.


Halapio rebounds from


slow start, injuries


By KYLE MAISTRI
Alligator Staff Writer
kmaistrn@alligator org

Film session was a sobering experi-
ence for Jon Halapio just days after Flor-
ida took on Miami (Ohio) in the season
opener.
The redshirt freshman guard was
routinely beat and looked lost at times
against what should have been an over-
matched RedHawks defensive line.
"After the first game I was horrible.


I was disgusted with myself," Halapio
said. "I can't believe I was on the field
playing like that. I promised myself


that it wouldn't happen
again."


j Halapio graded out a
Football 55 percent by his coaches
o- using a formula no one
outside of the UF -. rl
team is familiar with, but it's safe to say a
55 is a failing grade whether he was being
graded on pass blocking or chemistry.
SEE FOOTBALL, PAGE 15


After playing with what he called a 6-1/2-
man rotation last year, coach Billy Donovan
has to be salivating over the lineup combina-
tions available to him this season.
For the first time since the departure of
the heralded '04s, the Gators' coach believes
he will be able to use both larger and smaller
variations of his starting five.
No. 11 Florida will put a few of those group-
ings on display tonight at 7 in the O'Connell
Center when it squares off against George-
town (Ky.) College in its second and final ex-
hibition game.
After experimenting with numerous line-
ups in Florida's opener and limiting seniors
Alex Tyus and Vernon Macklin to just 10 and
12 minutes, respectively. Donovan said he will
return to more traditional looks in tonight's
matchup.
"My No. 1 goal going into the (Florida
Tech) game was to try to get enough minutes
for all the freshman," Donovan said. "So the
lineups we had out there a lot of times were
maybe lineups that we wouldn't have neces-
sarily in a lot of regular-season games."
This could mean more action for Florida's
starting five, which only saw about six min-
utes of playing time against Florida Tech.
Also likely to see more minutes is a larger
lineup that includes freshman Patric Young
and senior Vernon Macklin.
Donovan first tinkered with playing the
two former McDonald's All-Americans to-
gether in team practices and scrimmages, and
the unit yielded encouraging results.
"I think it's a good look," senior Chandler
Parsons said. "It's different and I think it's just
another lineup we can throw out there with
the pieces that we have."
The duo played together for 2:52 of the
team's exhibition opener, a stretch when the
Gators were outscored 11-5.


Macklihn and Young combined for 0 points
and 0 rebounds in the initial test run. But their
mere presence generated a trio of long-range
shooting opportunities for the Gators, as the
Panthers were forced to divert their defensive
attention to the interior.
"I think it's a good look. It's different
and I think it's just another lineup
we can throw out there with the
pieces that we have."
Chandler Parsons
UF forward

"That's something that we gotta continue
to work on in practice," Donovan said.
At the Southeastern Conference's media
day, Donovan remarked that the two "kinda
got in each other's way," as each is accustomed
to playing center and :. .-ii.. 11 i,o the paint.
The configuration requires Macklin to shift
from his traditional role out to the power for-
ward position, where he is learning new re-
sponsibilities like taking the ball out and play-
ing at the top of the press.
Even if the unit is eventually scrapped, se-
nior Alex Tyus and the remaining Gators will
have benefitted from working against it in
practice.
"It was just like a regular SEC game," Tyus
said. "Pat plays real physical, and Vern's a
great player."
Another lineup the Gators have experi-
mented with uses guards Kenny Boynton, Er-
ving Walker and Scottie Wilbekin simultane-
ously, although practice as a trio has been put
on hold due to Wilbekin's neck strain.
The only time the alignment was actually
featured was in an intrasquad scrimmage,
where it received positive reviews.
"It was fun," Boynton said. "Our team was
very intense. We got a lot of steals and basi-
cally for the time that we were in we were a
speed team."


UF needs heavy dose of turnovers


ight games in, we still don't really
know the UF offense.
Sure, fans were ready to write
the unit off before last week. Fire the of-
fensive coordinator. Bench the quarter-
back. Promote verbal commit Jeff Driskel
from Hagerty High like a Triple-A relief
pitcher.
Then the Gators rolled up to Jackson-
ville and brought some Outdoor-Cocktail-
Party fun with them. UF used a flashy
two-quarterbacks-on-one-field system
and even went no huddle.
Florida's offense gained 450 yards, its


second-best out-
put of the season
(and best against
a team not named
Kentucky). The
Gators even scored
on a 91-yard drive,

McCarney denies coaching rumors


narrison ulamona / mngaior blaT
Guard Jon Halapio (67) missed UF's Oct. 16 loss to Mississippi State due to a broken
finger on his right hand.


FOOTBALL, from page 14

A rash of injuries to the offensive line
kept Halapio in the rotation, regardless of
his struggles, and he vowed to put that per-
formance behind him.
Eight weeks later, Halapio is garnering
praise from both head coach Urban Meyer
and offensive line coach Steve Addazio for
his contributions to the team.
"Remember that name," Meyer said
after Halapio graded out a champion this
week against Georgia.
Halapio worked on cleaning up his tech-
nique, and the game started to become less
of a foreign language to him as he got more
and more snaps under his belt.
In film sessions, he sits behind senior
Mike Pouncey, who earned All-American
honors at Halapio's right guard position
last season, and picks the senior's brain on
how to improve his game.
"I try to watch Mike Pouncey on ev-
ery single play because he's just a natural
baller," Halapio said. "I love watching him
and I want to follow his footsteps and I
want to be just like him because he prac-
tices hard and he plays hard."
Halapio said one of the toughest parts
of college .... rl: II for him has been playing


through injuries, something he wasn't able
to do against Mississippi State. He was held
out of the loss to the Bulldogs after under-
going surgery on a finger on his right hand,
which sustained a break the previous week
against LSU.
"I almost passed out when I looked at it
because my bone was sticking out," Hala-
pio said. "It's probably the worst pain I've
ever felt."
But Halapio will gladly take a few more
bumps and bruises as long as he doesn't
have to endure the pain of watching anoth-
er performance like Week 1 on video.

"I almost passed out when I
looked at it because my bone was
sticking out."
Jon Halapio
UF guard

McCarney hasn't heard from Minneso-
ta: UF defensive line coach Dan McCarney,
who was the head coach at Iowa State from
1995-2006, has been rumored as a candidate
for the head coaching vacancy at Minne-
sota. But McCarney said Tuesday that he
hasn't had any contact with the program.
"No communication. None whatsoever,"
McCarney said.


TYLER, from page 14


up the scoreboard Saturday. Including Will "The (occasional)
Thrill" Hill's overtime interception, half of Florida's points
were preceded by turnovers in its 34-31 win against Georgia.
And that's been the theme all season. Florida leads the
SEC with 93 points off turnovers this year. Auburn ranks sec-
ond with 90 points, and the other 10 teams are averaging 41.5
points off interceptions and fumbles.
At first glance, the War Eagle/ Tigers/Raging Cam New-
tons seem comparable to Florida in the area. But, leading the
conference with 40 points per game, Auburn does not rely on
turnovers nearly as much as Florida.
To understand just how hard the Gators lean on turnovers,
consider this: 41 percent of the team's points come after de-
fensive takeaways. For the 11 SEC teams not named Florida,


about 20 percent of their points fall under the same category.
About one-quarter of Auburn's points come off turnovers.
In UF's five wins, the Gators sport a plus-11 turnover mar-
gin. In its three losses? Minus-six. That, of course, is not sur-
prising. In the three hours a day producers release him from
his cage, even ESPN's Skip Bayless could tell you turning the
ball over is very bad.
But how comfortable do you feel about your team if it's
identity revolves around forcing turnovers? Some chalk take-
aways up to right-place, right-time, good-bounce-of-the-ball
luck.
But a talented defense will get its hands on the ball more
than a mediocre one, and Florida's been able to force turnovers
because of the skill of its defensive backs. The Gators are tied
for first nationally with 16 interceptions, while the team ranks
113th with just three forced fumbles.
Janons Jenkins' interception on the first play of Saturday's


game, when he jumped anA.J. Green hitch route, came because
Jenkins has good instincts and can quickly change direction.
Theoretically, though, a team is going to force a lot of turn-
overs by dominating up front. But the Gators rank 66th with 15
sacks this season, so opposing quarterbacks aren't making bad
decisions because they're under pressure.
And Florida has, on occasion, been lucky. Urban Meyer
won't factor luck into the game because that implies parts of
his job can't be controlled through hard work. It's understand-
able logic, but that doesn't mean its true.
Both of The Thrill's interceptions came when tipped passes
sailed right to him. He even said after the game that his over-
time interception fell right in his lap.
Again, not every interception or forced fumble is blind luck.
Most aren't. But some are.
And the Gators might need a few opportunities to fall in
their lap if they want the rest of the season to be memorable.

Bell loses fight with cancer


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

STARKVILLE, Miss. - Mississippi
State defensive end Nick Bell died Tues-
day at the University of Alabama-Bir-
mingham Hospital after a short battle
with cancer.
Bell, a 20-year-old from Bessemer,
Ala., was diagnosed in late September
after experiencing headaches during
-....rl:: ll practice and had surgery on
Oct. 1 to remove a mass from his brain.
He had emergency surgery on Monday
morning after it was found that the can-
cer had aggressively spread throughout
his body.
"Nick was a son and he was a broth-
er to everyone in this -....rl: .II family,"
a somber Mississippi State coach Dan
Mullen said Tuesday night. "I know he's
looking down on us right now and I'm
sure he's already been picked for a team
up in heaven to play :-.. l: I:11 again -
the game that he loved."
Mullen held a team meeting on
Tuesday afternoon, where he informed
the players Bell had died. The Bulldogs
went ahead with their regularly sched-
uled practice. School officials said coun-


selors were available for students and
staff, and practice wasn't mandatory.
"That's a sanctuary for our coaches,
our players and our - ...l: :II family to
be out there together doing the thing we
love most," Mullen said. "It kind of felt
good to sweat out some of the feelings
and emotions that were inside."
After Bell's initial surgery on Oct. 1,
there was optimism about his recovery.
He returned to cam-
pus on Oct. 23 and
visited teammates on
the sideline during
the Bulldogs' victory
over Alabama-Bir-
mmingham.
Bell But his condition
deteriorated quickly
over the past week, and he was rushed
to the hospital on Sunday.
About 50 Mississippi State players
and coaches visited Bell and his family
at UAB Hospital on Monday evening.
"We grabbed a bus and loaded up a
bunch of guys," Mullen said. "I think it's
great that a lot of our players got to go
over there, see the situation and get to
say their goodbyes."


Marlins stick with Rodriguez


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

MIAMI - Edwin Rodriguez will get to
start what he finished - a season as manager
of the Florida Marlins.
After considering other candidates, the
Marlins decided to keep Rodriguez, a per-
son familiar with the search said Tuesday.
The person spoke to The Associated Press on
condition of anonymity because the Marlins
weren't planning an announcement until
Wednesday.
Rodriguez became the first Puerto Rican
manager in the major leagues when he took
over as interim manager June 23 after Fredi
Gonzalez was fired. Rodriguez, who has
been in baseball 30 years, managed Florida's
Triple-A team in New Orleans before getting
his first big league job.
Rodriguez was popular with players and
won praise for his handling of All-Star short-
stop Hanley Ramirez, whose attitude became
an issue after he was benched by Gonzalez
for not hustling early last season.
Gonzalez was dismissed with Florida at
34-36 and in fourth place in the NL East. Ro-
driguez went 46-46, and the Marlins finished
third.


Gonzalez was hired last month to replace
the retiring Bobby Cox as manager of the At-
lanta Braves. The Marlins' decision to keep
Rodriguez was first reported by the South
Florida Sun Sentinel on its website.
There has been speculation that owner Jef-
frey Loria might want a high-profile manager
when the team moves into its new ballpark
in 2012.
But president of baseball operations Larry
Beinfest hinted last month that Rodriguez
might be the right match for
the team's perennially young
roster.
MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL "This job is a unique job,"
Beinfest said then. "It's a little
bit of a manager who can grow with the team,
get the most out of them, develop them and
create a winning culture."
While the Marlins are young, they believe
they're on the verge of playoff contention. On
the final day of the regular season, Rodriguez
said he had high expectations for next year.
"This organization is in very good shape,"
he said. "I can picture this organization being
in a pennant race next year, and obviously for
2012, when we move into the new ballpark,
i,. .l':..,l .- should be in the World Series."

Gators look to win first SEC Tournament since 2007


* FLORIDA WILL TAKE ON
VANDERBILT TONIGHT AT 6.

By JESSE SIMONTON
Alligator Writer

Fresh off its fifth consecutive
regular-season Southeastern Con-
ference Championship, No. 7 Flor-
ida enters the SEC Tournament to-
night as a confident team hungry
for the taste of another title.
Despite their recent regular-
season successes, the Gators
haven't won a conference tour-
nament since 2007. Tonight's tilt
against Vanderbilt is Florida's


first chance to erase the two-year
drought.
"Our team is taking a lot of
pride in winning [the tournament]
because they realize this is a really
good setting to practice for next
week's [NCAA Tournament] one-
and-done scenario," coach Becky
Burleigh said.
The Gators (15-2-2, 9-1-1 SEC)
kick off the tournament tonight in
Orange Beach, Ala., at 6 against
the Commodores (8-9-2, 4-5-2
SEC) sporting multiple five-game
winning streaks. Florida has won
its last five regular-season games,
and it has won all five meetings
against Vanderbilt in the confer-


ence tournament's history. Flori-
da has outscored Vanderbilt 16-3
in those contests.
Earlier this season, the Gators
dominated the Commodores in a
2-0 victory in Nashville,Tenn., but
Burleigh expects a different team
this time.
"They didn't have their leading
scorer," she said. "Playing a team
for the second time is really hard.
Teams make adjustments and it
becomes a sort of cat-and-mouse
game the second time around."
Although Vanderbilt enters the
tournament as the lowest seed,
Florida isn't taking any chances
and is approaching the match with


UF sophomore Kat Williamson was named to the All-SEC first team on Tuesday. She also won SEC De-
fensive Player of the Year.


the mindset of just one game at a
time, senior Kat Williamson said.
While the Gators eyes are
honed in on the ultimate goal,
they know that the Commodores
need to win the tournament just to
qualify for the NCAAs.
"Teams are willing to throw
different looks," Burleigh said. "I
expect them to come our firing.
Desperate times call for desperate
measures."
Williamson named 2010 SEC
Defensive Player of the Year:
Quietly, the Gators' most consis-
tent player this season has been
the rock on the back line. William-
son was rewarded for her solid
play Tuesday.
The SEC announced its 2010
All-Conference teams and indi-
vidual award winners, and de-
spite several Gators players re-
ceiving recognition, Williamson
received the highest praise: being
named the SEC Defensive Player
of the Year.
Often overlooked because of
Florida's high-powered offense,
Williamson, a sophomore, has
started every game the past two
seasons and has filled in valiantly
for last year's SEC Defensive Play-
er of the Year, Lauren Hyde.
"She's done an amazing job,"
keeper Katie Frame said. "She's
such an intense player and is one
that shows that heart is more im-
portant than size."
Despite being 5-foot-6, Wil-
liamson is described as a warrior
by teammates, and a player the
Gators rely on to win games.
"She's the most physical and
aggressive player on our team,"
Frame said. "She refuses to lose.
Her competitiveness is what
makes her so good."


Williamson was the only re-
turning starter from the back line
a year ago, but the first team All-
SEC player led the way meshing
the group into a fearsome four-
some.
"It's something we've had to
work on throughout the year,"
Williamson said. "But I think
we've kind of figured it out."
"She's done a terrific job," Bur-
leigh said. "She's super competi-
tive, and she really makes up for a
lot of our mistakes."
Burleigh, others also honored:
While Williamson was named the
Defensive Player of the Year, sev-
eral other Gators, including Bur-
leigh, picked up accolades Tues-
day.
Burleigh was named the 2010
SEC Coach of the Year, the fourth
time she's been honored with the
award. Florida's coach has led the
team since its inaugural season in
1995, guiding the Gators to 11 SEC
titles and one national champion-
ship.
Five Gators were named to the
2010 All-SEC teams including for-
ward Taylor Travis, who picked
up several awards, most notably
being named 2010 SEC Freshman
of the Year.
The North Carolina native is
second in the SEC with 10 assists,
and was also named to the All-
SEC Freshman team and to the
All-SEC second team. Also on the
second team was forward Tahnal
Annis, who is second in the SEC
in points and goals.
Ashlee Elliott, Erika Tymrak
and Williamson were all named
to the All-SEC first team. It was
the third time Elliott has received
such an award, the first since her
transition to center back.

See Story, Page 14.By MATT HARRINGERAlligator Staff Writer Republicans were able to keep Florida’s U.S. Senate seat red and sweep the state’s cabinet Tuesday night, but as of press time Democrat Alex Sink was refusing to concede the gubernatorial race to Rick Scott. As of 12:45 a.m. today, the race for governor ly would be within 20,000 votes, triggering a recount. Problems were reported with counting the ballots in Hillsborough. Rick Scott, a wealthy businessman, had a Sink. In Alachua County, Sink won with 63 percent of the vote over Scott’s 36 percent. Patricia Aguerrevere, a fourth-year art history student at UF, said she wasn’t happy with either of the candidates but voted for Scott. “It’s more of a lesser-of-two-evils kind of thing,” she said. “I’m a conservative and Rick Scott was more conservative than Alex Sink. It was more that Rick Scott would do less damage. They’re both bad.” Kristin Klein, president of UF College Democrats, said Scott winning would be a tragedy for Florida, adding, “I think people [would] quickly recognize the mistake.”. And while the Democrats were trounced across the state, Klein said she was happy with how hard the UF Democrats campaigned. Unlike the gubernatorial race, the outcome of the Senate race was called by the Associated Press just after 8 p.m. — only minutes after the polls closed in the panhandle. Marco Rubio won 48 percent in the state, compared to Gov. Charlie Crist’s 27 percent and Congressman Kendrick Meek’s 20 percent. Rubio also won Alachua County with 38 percent, while Crist had 30 percent and Meek Republicans swept the cabinet races, with Pam Bondi as attorney general, Jeff Atwater commissioner of agriculture. Florida voters also passed three of the six constitutional amendments on the ballot, which each required 60 percent approval. Amendment 4, which would have given citizens a vote on changes to development plans failed to pass. Amendments 5 and 6, which aim to end unfair legislative redistricting, passed.

The board, which is the State University System’s highest governing body, will convene at Emerson Alumni Hall for two days of meetings that will touch on issues concerning the state’s universities, such as the question of whether univer sities should be permitted to offer academic programs located in areas close to other state universities. Charging market-rate tuition for distance-education graduate students and switching to a block tuition system for undergraduates are two issues to be discussed that would directly affect UF. At the Thursday meeting, the board will vote on whether to change regulations that would allow university boards of trustees to approve and charge block tuition and market-rate tuition for graduate students taking online distance education classes. UF spokesman Steve Orlando said UF is the only university in Florida pushing for block tuition, a measure that has already proven unpopular with some students.

4, ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 3, 2010UF ACADEMICSBy ERIC HENELYAlligator Contributing Writer A small, 55-million-year-old, tree-climbing rodent might be distantly related to you. A study co-authored by a UF researcher that describes the cranial anatomy of the now-extinct species was published Oct. 11 in the Zoological Journal of the Linnean Society. Researchers have found that Labidolemur kayi shares a common ancestor with tree shrews, rodents, lemurs and primates. “This gives us a window of insight into the pattern of evolution that led to humankind,” Doug Boyer said during a phone interview. Boyer, who is a co-author of the study, is the assistant professor of anthropology and archeology at Brooklyn College. He said the study was prompted by the most complete skeleton of the species ever found. emur, it’s usually just a tooth, or the cranium is usually squashed Bloch, another co-author of the study. He is the associate curator of vertebrate paleontology at UF. The remains were found over 10 years ago in Clarks Fork Basin, Wyo. However, removing the fossil from the limestone that surrounded it was a tedious process. After the fossil had been prepared from the limestone it sat in, researchers took high resolution CT scans of it, Bloch said. The scans involve taking thousands of X-rays and blending them together to create one seamless image that can be viewed from multiple angles. For every inch of fossil, they take close to 1,000 X-rays. Once all of the scans were complete, they were able to get a glimpse at what the animal looked like. It resembled a tiny gers and a bare tail with a puff of fur on the end, Bloch said. “Based on the large brain size, we were also able to tell that this animal was fairly intelligent,” Boyer said. Using a method known as comparative morphology, researchers were even able to tell how and what L. kayi preferred to eat, Boyer said. Comparative morphology takes bone structures of extinct animals and compares them to bone structures of creatures that are living. Bloch said that even the way the animal ate was bizarre. L. on trees and its large ears to listen. Once it found a hollow spot, it would gnaw at the bark of the He said that another thing that makes the L. kayi species notable is the time in which they lived. Dinosaurs roamed the earth and dominated most environments until 65 million years ago when they went extinct. “With the extinction of the dinosaurs, things really opened up,” Bloch said. “Mammals were given a much greater opportunity to excel.” over from the dinosaurs provide the basic blueprint that nearly all mammals follow to this day, Bloch said. He said that this study focuses primarily on the skull. Within the next year they hope to have a follow-up study to analyze the entire skeleton. Even though L. kayi shares a common ancestor with humans, Boyer emphasizes just how far back this ancestor is. “It is really quite far down the line,” he said.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS bombings and mortar strikes killed 76 people and wounded more than 200 across Baghdad’s myriad neighborhoods Tuesday, demonstrating the insurgents’ ability to carry out coordinated strikes from one side of the capital to the other. The attack — blasts in at least 13 separate neighborhoods — was clearly designed to hit civilians at restaurants and cafes where many Iraqis were gathered to enjoy the warm evening. The sophistication and the targets — Shiites — suggested that al-Qaida-linked Sunni militants were responsible for the deadliest day in Iraq since May. The strikes, two days after the bloody siege of a downtown church, were stunning in their scope — indicating a high degree of coordination and complexity from an insurgency that just defeated. “They say the situation is under the control. Where is their control?” said Hussein al-Saiedi, a 26-year-old resident of Baghdad’s sprawling Sadr City slum, where 21 people were killed when a parked car blew up near a market in Tuesday’s deadliest bombing. “We were just standing on the street when we heard a loud noise, and then saw smoke and pieces of cars, falling from the sky,” al-Saiedi said. People were cally calling the names of their relatives and friends.” The bombings began at about 6:15 p.m. and lasted for hours. The assailants used boobytrapped cars and a motorcycle, roadside bombs and mortars. Though 10 neighborhoods targeted were home to mostly Shiites, a couple of strikes hit Sunni communities as well. In addition to the 76 dead, 232 people were wounded, according who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not auPrime Minister Nouri al-Maliki called the string of blasts and the church siege crimes by terror ists and former members of the Baath Party — which once ruled Iraq under Saddam Hussein — against innocent civilians designed to provoke sectarian strife “The criminal acts that tar geted the Christians at the Lady of Salvation church and the civilians in Baghdad are political blasts intending to halt the forming of the government,” he said in a statement.

By the time this is printed, we should know who most of you are. For those of you who kept us up all night, thanks a lot. Wait, who am I kidding? The percentage of students at UF who stayed up late on election night is surely less than 5 percent, right? And only a bit more will actually vote in the midterms despite the virtuous efforts of local political organizations, campaigns and independent groups like Rock the Vote. More students are interested in the end of attack ads between Steve Oelrich and Perry McGriff or between Alex Sink and Rick Scott than to actually help decide which one of them will be governing all of us. Maybe I’m weird, but I was incredibly excited to vote more, I consider myself a center-left kind of guy, so based on the political climate this year, “excited” isn’t a word that comes to most of my like-minded colleagues’ minds when thinking about a midterm election that was scheduled to dissipate the Democratic party’s supermajority. But just wait, Republicans, here’s some advice you could have used. Republicans, you shot yourselves in the foot with candidates like Christine O’Donnell, whose largest claim to fame was witchcraft, and Sharron Angle, who makes last year’s incarnation of Joaquin Phoenix look like a media darling. It’s my personal belief this is not a mandate against the Obama Administration. The chief issue behind this past election is, yet again, the economy. After the stimulus The Republicans need to be careful, however. The Tea Party might surge to power based on two major issues: cutting government spending and lowering taxes, but most Tea Par tiers are more socially conservative it hard to believe the Tea Party is a sustainable national movement. It works well on a local, grassroots level, where candidates can go head-to-head against that “Washington politician” or that “Tallahassee politician” who foolishly spent taxpayer money. But when Tea Partiers go national, you end up with O’Donnell, Angle, Sarah Palin and Michele Bachmann. Not only are all four of these canresult in turmoil both here and abroad. Why’s that? The Tea Party stems out of legitimate concern and a legitimate political perspective, one I don’t subscribe to, but not an unreasonable political view. However, it’s the supporters who often throw their own movement under the bus. Either by displaying signs with racial slurs, Photoshopping the president of the U.S. with a Hitler mustache or screaming socialism in an attempt to be the anti-vanguard, the movement loses credibility daily. So a few congratulations are in order. Pop that champagne, Republicans. Don’t adjust your television, Speaker John Boehner is really that orange (Watch out Snooki!) and get ready for the sprint to the center. Democrats, know that Obama has to compromise if he wants to be re-elected, but Republicans should know that Tea Partiers aren’t a shoo-in either. Fat chanceThe Brits have a big problem. In fact, they have an extra-extraextra-extra-large problem to wrap their minds and belts around. The British retailer High & Mighty has just introduced the country’s biggest no-special-order-required suit, an XXXXL frock intended for a 60-inch waist. And, by the way, 60 inchthat all-too-easy metric system everyone else seems to love. A 60-inch waist equates to a height where children are deemed too short to ride many roller coasters. And when we have people with waistlines longer got a problem. At a time when, across the lion price tag on America’s health care, and when Mississippi, the longtime holder of the dubious title of the fattest state in the union, has an obesity rate of more than one in three people, we have a problem. Back to the English High & Mighty problem, which we can only assume does not bode well for the makers of the whitey tighties, recent studies suggest one in While we haven’t seen any marketable XXXXS suits, we wonder if stores like High ing the obesity pandemic or encouraging it by making a 60-inch-waistline suit. Regardless of the answer, we have a serious multibillion dollar problem on our grease-laden, Cheetosstained hands.Shock the voteFlorida’s 2000 recount shock has taught us littleFlorida’s embarrassment 10 years ago hasn’t taught us much. With every election, there comes an equal and laborious series of voting mishaps that continue to plague our great democracy. By Tuesday afternoon, reports of electronic voting machines, supposedly the most accurate, inaccurately recording votes were already reported. And reports of such inaccuracies were apparently plaguNevada. Voters across the state, who we can only assume were trying to bare their tea-party teeth one last time, reported large discrepancies with the electronic voting machines already voting for Democratic Sen. Harry Reid. Swaths of North Carolina voters reported computers inaccurately recorded votes for the entirely wrong political party. And some supervisors of elections in Pennsylvania have thrown out hundreds of ballots because of reported signature problems. You’d think after Florida’s 36-day recount debacle that threw “hanging chad” and Pat Buchanan into our popular lexicon and left the nation hanging in the balance would have taught the country a few lessons. Inevitably, by tonight there will be recounts demanded and more voting issues reported to spur even more result challenges. And when recounts happen in states that throw out ballots because of “signature problems,” we’ve learned nothing from Florida’s recount embarrassment. Sean Quinnletters@alligator.org

Bryan Hood UF student Letters to the Editor Tments on Oct. 22 by the WikiLeaks website revealed a startling image of the secret history of the war in Iraq. The documents contain details of events reported by the United States military and provide evidence of systematic tor ture and rape used as weapons of warfare. Sixty percent of the deaths registered in the documents are civilians. The documents reveal the use of indiscriminate and disproportionate force used and condoned by the US military. They also raise substantial questions concerning war crimes. documents in history. Critics argue the release of this sensitive information will jeopardize US military operations and be used by opposition forces to seek out and kill Iraqi civilian informants working with the US military. Supporters of the whistleblower website contend the documents contain information the public deserves to know. According to the documents, as many as 15,000 Iraqi civilian deaths were previously unaccounted for. When President Obama was elected, he promised to conduct his administration with transparency. The amount of sein the face of such promises. Obama’s promise for transpar ency has gone the way of his promise to close Guantanamo Bay. Obama was not president, but that doesn’t excuse him from failing to hold the Bush administration accountable. Secrets and lies are what paraded the U.S. into the war in prolonged that war. It is also tough to support a war effort that tolerates torture and civilian mur der and gives private contractors free reign. Julian Assange is the spokesperson and editor-in-chief for the WikiLeaks website. As would be Iraq documents. News organizations are wondering why he isn’t dead yet and claiming that the U.S. government should list him as an enemy combatant, which would deprive him of the right to due process. This doesn’t seem right. Shouldn’t he be considered a champion of truth and democracy? Don’t the people have a right to know about the sort of devastation and destruction that is happening in their name, with their tax dollars? cord as primary documentation of the many mishandlings of a complicated war. It appears the media is more concerned with attacking Julian Assange than with discussing the issue of human rights the documents raise. In 1971, Daniel Ellsberg, a former Rand Corporation employee, released Department of Defense documents that detailed the United States political-military involvement in Vietnam from 1945 to 1967. The documents became known as the Pentagon Papers and indicated, among other things, that the Johnson administration had systematically lied to the public and to Congress. The publication of the papers caused a national outcry for government transparency and accountability. Today, the socio-political landscape is much different. Many major media outlets have expressed their disgust over the release of the WikiLeaks documents. On the other hand, some media sources commend the website for its courage and goodwill comment of being unsurprised by the lack of government honesty. There is no palpable call to action or demand for accountability. Instead the politically discontent shrug their shoulders and brush off the failure of military responsibility. Wikileaks is trying to pull the wool out of the eyes of a world that prefers to live in the dark. An Army whistleblower, Spc. Bradley Manning, is cur rently in custody. He is suspected for leaking thousands of Iraq war documents to WikiLeaks. The Obama administration has brought as many prosecutions for leaks to the American public as all previous administrations combined. Granted, it is a small number — three — but it is still important to note. The administration is also threatening to use the Espionage Act to prevent further leaks. If that happens, the American public will know even less about the destruction that is happening in their name. This past summer, WikiLeaks released over 70,000 documents relating to the Afghanistan war. The same national security concerns were raised at the time. But the Associated Press recently obtained a pentagon letter stating that no US intelligence services or practices were damaged after the release of the documents. For a democracy to function as a true democracy the governing body must live up to the public’s expectation of transparency and accountability. WikiLeaks is providing information that the United States government was expected, ground for dissidents to stand upon in denouncing this despairingly unjust war.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESSCORAL GABLES (AP) — Tea party favorite Marco Rubio capped his dramatic rise with an easy win Tuesday over Gov. Charlie Crist and U.S. Rep. Kendrick Meek in the race for Florida’s open Senate seat, keeping it with the GOP. With 78 percent of precincts reporting, Rubio had about 50 percent of the vote, to 29 percent for Crist, who left the Republican Party earlier this year to run as an independent when polls showed him trailing in a GOP primary. Democratic nominee Meek had 19.6 percent. “We make a great mistake if we believe that tonight these results are somehow an embrace of the Republican party,” Rubio told supporters at a rally, referring to his and other GOP wins around the country. “What they are is a second chance, a second chance for Republicans to be what they said they were going to be not so long ago.” Rubio, a former speaker of the Florida House, was given little chance to defeat Crist when he announced his candidacy last year. Rubio will replace George LeMieux, who was appointed to the seat last year after Mel Martinez resigned. Moments before the race was called, former Gov. Jeb Bush walked into the room where Rubio was watching returns and said, “Congratulations!” “Why? Do you guys know something we don’t?” Rubio replied. When news agencies declared him the winner, the room erupted with roars. Rubio kept looking at the television and joked. “C’mon! I’m trying to hear about Kentucky!” Bush said he supported Rubio from the beginning. “I’m so proud of him and he ran a spectacular race. “It’s a great day for the conservative cause. New people with new thinking, new ideas — 21st century solutions.” Rubio built momentum through tea party rallies, driving around the state on a tight budget and often without staff to talk to any conservative group that would listen. His message was consistent: President Barack Obama’s domestic spending and health care policies are a disaster and the nation will spiral downward if spending isn’t controlled. “When you’re 35 points down in the polls and the only people who think you can win live in your house, and four of them are under the age of 10, you better know why your running,” Rubio said in his victory speech. Party leaders in Tallahassee and Washington tried to force him out of the race so then-Republican Crist could walk to the nomination. But Rubio believed Crist wasn’t a principled conservative and used the image of the governor hugging Obama at a rally to push for the $787 billion stimulus package to whittle away at Crist’s support. For months, Crist acted as if he were the only candidate in the race. Then Rubio’s fundraising and poll numbers increased to the point that Crist was the underdog. Meanwhile, Meek struggled to gain traction as the media focused on the intense battle for the Republican nomination. 8, ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 3, 2010 Election Winners(as of press time)U.S. Senator Marco Rubio U.S. House District 3 Corrine Brown U.S. House District 6 Cliff Stearns Governor Rick Scott Attorney General Pam Bondi Jeff Atwater Commissioner of Agriculture Adam Putnam State Senator District 14 Steve Oelrich State Representative District 22 Keith Perry County Commission District 2 Lee Pinkoson County Commission District 4 Susan Baird School Board District 1 School Board District 5 Carol Oyenarte Soil and Water Commission STEVE OELRICH WON BY MORE THAN 10,000 VOTES.BY C.J.

In a District 14 Florida State Senate race marked with heated political exchange, Republican incumbent Steve Oelrich carried the conservative momentum, defeating Democratic challenger Perry C. McGriff Jr. by more than 10,000 votes. Addressing a crowd of supporters at the Hampton Inn in downtown Gainesville to watch election results, a disappointed McGriff attempted to make peace with the defeat while thanking campaign staff and supporters for their effort. Although he acknowledged a sense of hurt at some of Oelrich’s campaign ads, especially one regarding McGriff’s position on adoption, McGriff said that he gave Oelrich a congratulatory call that was “short and to the point” and told supporters that he would continue to be involved in public service. “The Lord has wrapped his arms around me so I’ll be OK,” he said. “Life will go on.” The race for County Commission District 4 produced one of the more surprising results of the night as Democratic candidate Cynthia Chestnut was defeated by Republican Susan Baird by more than 5,000 votes. But it wasn’t all gloom for Democrats locally, as Lee Pinkoson won his contest for a seat on the County Commission District 2. He defeated the Republican candidate, Jim Gabriel, by a margin of more than 8,000 votes. Jon Reiskind, the chairman of the Alachua County Democratic Party Executive Committee, said that while a Republican backlash was to be expected, the results still served as a disappointment for a party that, he believes, needs to reconnect with the public in order to improve from its midterm showing. Although Reiskind acknowledged that Democrats have their work cut out for them between now and the next election, he remains optimistic that the party can recover. “It’s a sad day for the Democrats but it’s not a tragic day,” he said.Republicans take local seats, mirror stateRubio Senate win fueled by anti-Obama moodMax Reed/ Alligator StaffPerry C.

By JON SILMANAlligator Staff Writer For 37 years, the pepper-haired man with the oval spectacles has been cutting Gators’ hair. Because of tough times – or maybe in spite of them – Jay Jarrell, 59, moved his Reitz Union Barber Shop to a smaller space about the size of his old waiting area. Before the move, he said, he was barely treading water. “The last ten years have been a real struggle to break even,” he said. He anticipates the new space, which opened Monday, will be better for business. He’d been asking the Reitz Union management for a smaller place for some time, and when the old Freshens spot opened up, he jumped on it. The space is smaller than he would’ve liked, but “you can’t pick and choose space like that in a building like this.” ated with a degree in psychology, his son and daughter were Gators and his parents were season ticket holders. He hopes that his grandchildren will attend UF as well. He likes cutting students’ hair because they’re bright and have a clear way of communicating what they want. He’s been a barber for a long time, and his job provides him his happiness. “Some people say you have to love what you do to be a happy person, but I’m just not convinced,” he said. For him, the simple things are enough. He loves his church to his 8-month-old grandson. His dad always told him that as a barber he may not always have steak, but he’d always have hamburger. He wants to cut his hours when he turns 67. Sometimes he’s on his feet for 10 hours a day, and he knows he can’t work like that forever. For now, he’s enjoying the smaller workload “If I’m blessed enough to be in good health, I’d work until my age in golf.” ALLIGATOR, 9 Max Reed / Alligator Staff 1967 and reopened in its new space Monday. Barber moves to smaller space “The last ten years have been a real struggle to break even.”Jay Jarrell Owner of Reitz Union Barber Shop

WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 3, 2010 ALLIGATOR, 15Harrison Diamond / Alligator StaffGuard Jon Halapio (67) missed UF’s Oct. 16 loss to Mississippi State due to a broken up the scoreboard Saturday. Including Will “The (occasional) Thrill” Hill’s overtime interception, half of Florida’s points were preceded by turnovers in its 34-31 win against Georgia. And that’s been the theme all season. Florida leads the SEC with 93 points off turnovers this year. Auburn ranks second with 90 points, and the other 10 teams are averaging 41.5 points off interceptions and fumbles. tons seem comparable to Florida in the area. But, leading the conference with 40 points per game, Auburn does not rely on turnovers nearly as much as Florida. To understand just how hard the Gators lean on turnovers, consider this: 41 percent of the team’s points come after defensive takeaways. For the 11 SEC teams not named Florida, about 20 percent of their points fall under the same category. About one-quarter of Auburn’s points come off turnovers. gin. In its three losses? Minus-six. That, of course, is not sur prising. In the three hours a day producers release him from his cage, even ESPN’s Skip Bayless could tell you turning the ball over is very bad. But how comfortable do you feel about your team if it’s identity revolves around forcing turnovers? Some chalk takeaways up to right-place, right-time, good-bounce-of-the-ball luck. But a talented defense will get its hands on the ball more than a mediocre one, and Florida’s been able to force turnovers because of the skill of its defensive backs. The Gators are tied 113th with just three forced fumbles. game, when he jumped an A.J. Green hitch route, came because Jenkins has good instincts and can quickly change direction. Theoretically, though, a team is going to force a lot of turnsacks this season, so opposing quarterbacks aren’t making bad decisions because they’re under pressure. And Florida has, on occasion, been lucky. Urban Meyer won’t factor luck into the game because that implies parts of his job can’t be controlled through hard work. It’s understandable logic, but that doesn’t mean its true. Both of The Thrill’s interceptions came when tipped passes sailed right to him. He even said after the game that his over time interception fell right in his lap. Again, not every interception or forced fumble is blind luck. Most aren’t. But some are. And the Gators might need a few opportunities to fall in their lap if they want the rest of the season to be memorable. TYLER, from page 14SEC FOOTBALLTHE ASSOCIATED PRESS STARKVILLE, Miss. — Mississippi State defensive end Nick Bell died Tuesday at the University of Alabama-Bir mingham Hospital after a short battle with cancer. Bell, a 20-year-old from Bessemer, Ala., was diagnosed in late September after experiencing headaches during football practice and had surgery on Oct. 1 to remove a mass from his brain. He had emergency surgery on Monday morning after it was found that the cancer had aggressively spread throughout his body. “Nick was a son and he was a brother to everyone in this football family,” a somber Mississippi State coach Dan Mullen said Tuesday night. “I know he’s looking down on us right now and I’m sure he’s already been picked for a team up in heaven to play football again — the game that he loved.” Mullen held a team meeting on Tuesday afternoon, where he informed the players Bell had died. The Bulldogs went ahead with their regularly schedselors were available for students and staff, and practice wasn’t mandatory. “That’s a sanctuary for our coaches, our players and our football family to be out there together doing the thing we love most,” Mullen said. “It kind of felt good to sweat out some of the feelings and emotions that were inside.” After Bell’s initial surgery on Oct. 1, there was optimism about his recovery. He returned to campus on Oct. 23 and visited teammates on the sideline during the Bulldogs’ victory over Alabama-Bir mingham. But his condition deteriorated quickly over the past week, and he was rushed to the hospital on Sunday. About 50 Mississippi State players and coaches visited Bell and his family at UAB Hospital on Monday evening. “We grabbed a bus and loaded up a bunch of guys,” Mullen said. “I think it’s great that a lot of our players got to go over there, see the situation and get to say their goodbyes.”McCarney denies coaching rumorsA rash of injuries to the offensive line kept Halapio in the rotation, regardless of his struggles, and he vowed to put that per formance behind him. Eight weeks later, Halapio is garnering praise from both head coach Urban Meyer and offensive line coach Steve Addazio for his contributions to the team. “Remember that name,” Meyer said after Halapio graded out a champion this week against Georgia. Halapio worked on cleaning up his technique, and the game started to become less of a foreign language to him as he got more and more snaps under his belt. Mike Pouncey, who earned All-American honors at Halapio’s right guard position last season, and picks the senior’s brain on how to improve his game. “I try to watch Mike Pouncey on every single play because he’s just a natural baller,” Halapio said. “I love watching him and I want to follow his footsteps and I want to be just like him because he practices hard and he plays hard.” Halapio said one of the toughest parts of college football for him has been playing through injuries, something he wasn’t able to do against Mississippi State. He was held out of the loss to the Bulldogs after under which sustained a break the previous week against LSU. “I almost passed out when I looked at it because my bone was sticking out,” Halapio said. “It’s probably the worst pain I’ve ever felt.” But Halapio will gladly take a few more bumps and bruises as long as he doesn’t have to endure the pain of watching another performance like Week 1 on video. McCarney hasn’t heard from Minnesota: UF defensive line coach Dan McCarney, who was the head coach at Iowa State from for the head coaching vacancy at Minnesota. But McCarney said Tuesday that he hasn’t had any contact with the program. “No communication. None whatsoever,” McCarney said. FOOTBALL, from page 14THE ASSOCIATED PRESS MIAMI — Edwin Rodriguez will get to of the Florida Marlins.

But president of baseball operations Larry Beinfest hinted last month that Rodriguez might be the right match for the team’s perennially young roster. “This job is a unique job,” Beinfest said then. “It’s a little bit of a manager who can grow with the team, get the most out of them, develop them and create a winning culture.” While the Marlins are young, they believe they’re on the verge of playoff contention. On said he had high expectations for next year. “This organization is in very good shape,” he said. “I can picture this organization being in a pennant race next year, and obviously for 2012, when we move into the new ballpark, hopefully we should be in the World Series.” “I almost passed out when I looked at it because my bone was sticking out.”Jon Halapio UF guardBell

Voters also passed Alligator Staff Writer as chief financial officer and Adam Putnam as citizens a vote on changes to development property tax discount to active military per Republicans were able to keep Florida's U.S. Senate seat red and sweep the state's cabinet Tuesday night, but as of press lime Democrat Alex Sink was refusing to concede the gubernatorial race to Rick Scott. As of 12:45 a.m. today, the race for governor was still officially undecided. Sources from the Sink campaign said they believed the final tally would be within 20,000 votes, triggering a recount. Problems were reported with counting the ballots in Hillsborough. Rick Scott, a wealthy businessman, had a slight lead over Chief Financial Officer Alex Sink. In Alachua County, Sink won with 63 percent of the vote over Scott's 36 percent. See complete coverage on Page 8. Patricia Aguerrevere, a fourth-year art history student at UF, said she wasn't happy with either of the candidates but voted for Scott. "It's more of a lesser-of-two-evils kind of thing," she said. "I'm a conservative and Rick Scott was more conservative than Alex Sink. It was more that Rick Scott would do less damage. They're both bad." Kristin Klein, president of UF College Democrats, said Scott winning would be a tragedy for Florida, adding, "I think people [would] quickly recognize the mistake.". And while the Democrats were trounced across the state, Klein said she was happy with how hard the UF Democrats campaigned. Unlike the gubernatorial race, the outcome of the Senate race was called by the Associated Press just after 8 p.m. -only minutes after the polls closed in the panhandle. Marco Rubio won 48 percent in the state, compared to Gov. Charlie Crisfs 27 percent and Congressman Kendrick Meek's 20 percent. Rubio also won Alachua County with 38 percent, while Crist had 30 percent and Meek finished third with 28 percent. Republicans swept the cabinet races, with commissioner of agriculture. Florida voters also passed three of the six constitutional amendments on the ballot, which each required 60 percent approval. plans failed to pass. Amendments 5 and 6, which aim to end unfair legislative redistricting, passed. The amendments could have an enormous affect on the state's legislature in sonnel. Amendment 8, which would have loosened the state's class size requirements, and Amendment 1, which would have ended public-campaign finance, failed to pass.

Highest education board to discuss block tuition U THEY WILL MEET TODAY. other statewide concerns. close to other state universities. At the Thursday meeting, the Florida pushing for block tuition, By JOEY FLECHAS Alligator Staff Writer Block tuition at UF might take one step closer to becoming a reality as Florida's Board of Governors meets on campus today and Thursday to discuss the measure, among The board, which is the State University System's highest governing body, will convene at Emerson Alumni Hall for two days of meetings that will touch on issues concerning the state's universities, such as the question of whether universities should be permitted to offer academic programs located in areas Charging market-rate tuition for distance-education graduate students and UF switching Administration to a block tuition system for undergraduates are two issues to be discussed that would directly affect UF. board will vote on whether to change regulations that would allow university boards of trustees to approve and charge block tuition and market-rate tuition for graduate students taking online distance education classes. UF spokesman Steve Orlando said UF is the only university in a measure that has already proven unpopular with some students. He said some of the opposition may result from students' unfamiliarity with the system. "There's a lot of misunderstanding about block tuition," he said. "It does not have any requirement for taking any number of credits." Cops: 'Superheroes' brawl at Connecticut parking garage STAMFORD, Conn. (AP) -It is assault charges for Spider-Man and Captain America, and breach of peace for Poison Ivy. Police in Connecticut said a man dressed as Captain America and another as Spider-Man have been arrested after getting into a fight in Stamford over the Halloween weekend. Stamford Police Lt. Elizabeth Erickson said officers found 25-year-old Michael Sanchez, dressed as Captain America, beating the father of 21-year-old Vincent DeCarlo, sporting a Spider-Man costume, in a parking garage Sunday morning. The Stamford Advocate reported that DeCarlo allegedly punched Sanchez of Stamford as police tried to break up the scuffle. DeCarlo's girlfriend, 18-year-old Nicole Bitterli of Toms River, N.J., dressed as Poison Ivy, also hit Sanchez. It was unclear if any had attorneys.

Dana Burke/ Alligator Director of multicultural affairs Romilda Justilien and Senator Demetri Morgan invite senate members to the Campus Climate Change event Thursday and Friday to discuss student opinion. WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 3, 2010 E ALLIGATOR, 3 STUDENT GOVERMENT Provost pitches tuition change at SG meeting By MEREDITH RUTLAND Alligator Contributing Writer Senators heard a little bit about block tuition during Tuesday's meeting. University Provost Joe Glover told senators that students would still be given Bright Futures tuition assistance based on how many credit hours they take, but they would be charged a flat fee. He said UFPs decision to implement or not implement block tuition is separate from the state-funded Bright Futures program, and that Bright Futures would not be changed based on what UF decides. He said students with Florida Prepaid would not notice a difference with their financial aid either. The Senate also unanimously approved a resolution calling for the expansion of sustainable education opportunities on campus, in the forms of sustainability minors and majors and sustainability-related courses. "We really need to have a push for more sustainability within education." Bailey Kilbourne Head of Gators Going Green. According to the resolution, senators hope UF can achieve zero waste by 2015 and carbon neutrality by 2025. "We really need to have a push for more sustainability within education," said Bailey Kilbourne, an author of the bill and agency head for Gators Going Green. Man accused in terror plot case held in NY without bail NO COURT DATE WAS SET. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW YORK -A man accused of lying about a failed plot to join the U.S. military and team up with insurgents in Iraq was jailed without bail in his first court appearance Tuesday since his arrest last month. Abdel Hameed Shehadeh, a skinny 21year-old from Staten Island who was arrested in Hawaii, didn't enter a plea to charges he made false statements to U.S. authorities investigating an international terrorism. There was no immediate response to a message left Tuesday with his attorney. A criminal complaint unsealed last month said the FBI and the New York Police Department had been investigating Shehadeh "and several other individuals in connection with a plot to travel overseas and wage violent jihad against the United States and other coalition military forces." The complaint alleged that Shehadeh, who was born in the United States, initially caught the attention of U.S. authorities by buying a one-way ticket to Pakistan in June 2008. Once he arrived there, Pakistani officials wouldn't allow him into the country and he returned to New York. In October 2006, the complaint said, Shehadeh went to Times Square to try to join the Army. It said when a recruiter asked him if he'd traveled overseas, he lied and said he'd only been to Israel. Later that month, Shehadeh tried to fly from Newark, N.J., to Jordan, where he again was denied entry. Once he returned to the United States on a flight to Detroit, counterterrorism investigators confronted him about what they say were radical writings and videos he posted on the Internet. The complaint said ShehaPublic deh insisted he tried to go to Health Pakistan for religious, not military, training. But witnesses who knew him told investigators that he instructed them that it was the duty of Muslims to fight jihad Times Square was his goal. -and that signing up in the best way to achieve Shehadeh "informed (one witness) that he hoped to be deployed to Iraq," the complaint said. "At the time he was applying to join the military, Shehadeh told (the witness), when he arrived in Iraq, he intended to commit 'treason' and fight United States soldiers." The complaint said Shehadeh traveled to Hawaii in April 2009. There, he bought an airline ticket to Dubai in June, but was intercepted by FBI agents who told him he was on a "no fly" list. In subsequent interviews, he allegedly admitted he had hoped to join the Taliban and receive "guerrilla warfare" and "bomb-making" training, the complaint said. No new court date was set.

4, ALLIGATOR U WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 3,2010 UF researcher discovers human ties to tree rodents By ERIC HENELY Alligator Contributing Writer A small, 55-million-year-old, tree-climbing rodent might be distantly related to you. A study co-authored by a UF researcher that describes the cranial anatomy of the now-extinct species was published Oct. 11 in the Zoological Journal of the Linnean Society. Researchers have found that Labidolemur kayi shares a common ancestor with tree shrews, rodents, lemurs and primates. "This gives us a window of insight into the pattern of evolution that led to humankind," Doug Boyer said during a phone interview. Boyer, who is a co-author of the study, is the assistant professor of anthropology and archeology at Brooklyn College. He said the study was prompted by the most complete skeleton of the species ever found. When they find a Labidolemur, it's usually just a tooth, or the cranium is usually squashed completely flat, said Jonathan Bloch, another co-author of the study. He is the associate curator of vertebrate paleontology at UF The remains were found over 10 years ago in Clarks Fork Basin, Wyo. However, removing the fossil from the limestone that surrounded it was a tedious process. After the fossil had been prepared from the limestone it sat in, researchers took high resolution CT scans of it, Bloch said. The scans involve taking thousands of X-rays and blending them together to create one seamless image that can be viewed from multiple angles. For every inch of fossil, they take close to 1,000 X-rays. Once all of the scans were complete, they were able to get a glimpse at what the animal looked like. It resembled a tiny squirrel with big ears, long fingers and a bare tail with a puff of fur on the end, Bloch said. "Based on the large brain size, we were also able to tell that this animal was fairly intelligent," Boyer said. Using a method known as comparative morphology, researchers were even able to tell how and what L. kayi preferred to eat, Boyer said. Comparative morphology takes bone structures of extinct animals and compares them to bone structures of creatures that are living. Bloch said that even the way the animal ate was bizarre. L. kayi used its long fingers to tap on trees and its large ears to listen. Once it found a hollow spot, it would gnaw at the bark of the tree to find grubs inside it. It filled an ecological niche that woodpeckers now fill. He said that another thing that Kristen Grace/Florida Museum o Natural History UF vertebrate paleontologist Jonathan Bloch examines the full skeleton of Labidolemur kayi, a 55-million-year-old extinct mammal with odd ecological adaptations. makes the L. kayi species notable is the time in which they lived. Dinosaurs roamed the earth and dominated most environments until 65 million years ago when they went extinct. "With the extinction of the dinosaurs, things really opened up," Bloch said. "Mammals were given a much greater opportunity to excel." The first mammals that took over from the dinosaurs provide the basic blueprint that nearly all mammals follow to this day, Bloch said. He said that this study focuses primarily on the skull. Within the next year they hope to have a follow-up study to analyze the entire skeleton. Even though L. kayi shares a common ancestor with humans, Boyer emphasizes just how far back this ancestor is. "It is really quite far down the line," he said.

Falstad also stated that the carbon footprint of meat consumption is much higher than that of vegetables, due to its high energy intake. Thirty other universities across Bombings, mortar strikes kill 76 people across Baghdad THE ASSOCIATED PRESS BAGHDAD -Rapid-fire bombings and mortar strikes killed 76 people and wounded more than 200 across Baghdad's myriad neighborhoods Tuesday, demonstrating the insurgents' ability to carry out coordinated strikes from one side of the capital to the other. The attack -blasts in at least 13 separate neighborhoods was clearly designed to hit civilians at restaurants and cafes where many Iraqis were gathered to enjoy the warm evening. The sophistication and the targets Shiites -suggested that al-Qaida-linked Sunni militants were responsible for the deadliest day in Iraq since May. The strikes, two days after the bloody siege of a downtown church, were stunning in their scope -indicating a high degree of coordination and complexity from an insurgency that just a few months ago U.S. and Iraqi officials were saying was all but defeated. "They say the situation is under the control. Where is their control?" said Hussein al-Saiedi, a 26-year-old resident of Baghdad's sprawling Sadr City slum, where 21 people were killed when a parked car blew up near a market in Tuesday's deadliest bombing. "We were just standing on the street when we heard a loud noise, and then saw smoke and pieces of cars, falling from the sky," al-Saiedi said. People were fleeing the site in panic, frantically calling the names of their relatives and friends." The bombings began at about 6:15 p.m. and lasted for hours. The assailants used boobyNews trapped cars and a motorcycle, roadside bombs and mortars. Though 10 neighborhoods targeted were home to mostly Shiites, a couple of strikes hit Sunni communities as well. In addition to the 76 dead, 232 people were wounded, according to police and hospital officials who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to the media.

"The criminal acts that targeted the Christians at the Lady of Salvation church and the civilians in Baghdad are political blasts intending to halt the forming of the government," he said in a statement. Iraq has been without a new government since the March 7 elections, leaving a political vacuum that many fear insurgents are trying to exploit. The White House condemned the "vicious violence" and offered sympathy to the victims' families and all Iraqis. "We have confidence that the people of Iraq will remain steadfast in their rejection of efforts by extremists to spark sectarian tension," said National Security Council spokesman Mike Hammer. "These attacks will not stop Iraq's progress. The United States stands with the people of Iraq and remains committed to our strong and long-term partnership." There was no immediate claim of responsibility, but suspicion fell on al-Qaida. "We do not have any conclusive information at this time as to the responsible parties but this seems to be typical AQI (al-Qaida in Iraq) tactics," said Lt. Col. Eric Bloom, a U.S. military spokesman. the nation have joined the campaign, which has been publicly endorsed by Meatless Monday, a nonprofit organization that works to promote meat-free eating, as well as GatorWell, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals and Gators for a Sustainable Campus.

6, ALLIGATOR U WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 3,2010 Shock the vote Florida's 2000 recount shock has taught us little Florida's embarrassment 10 years ago hasn't taught us With every election, there comes an equal and labonous sees of voting mishaps that continue to plague our great democracy. By Tuesday afternoon, reports of electronic voting machines, supposedly the most accurate, inaccurately recording votes were already reported. And reports of such inaccuracies were apparently plaguing the Silver State as multiple reports began to flood across Nevada. Voters across the state, who we can only assume were trying to bare their tea-party teeth one last time, reported large discrepancies with the electronic voting machines already voting for Democratic Sen. Harry Reid. Swaths of North Carolina voters reported computers inaccurately recorded votes for the entirely wrong political party. And some supervisors of elections in Pennsylvania have thrown out hundreds of ballots because of reported signature problems. You'd think after Florida's 36-day recount debacle that threw "hanging chad" and Pat Buchanan into our popular lexicon and left the nation hanging in the balance would have taught the country a few lessons. Inevitably, by tonight there will be recounts demanded and more voting issues reported to spur even more result challenges. And when recounts happen in states that throw out ballots because of "signature problems," we've learned nothing from Florida's recount embarrassment. Fat chance he Bnts have a big problem. In fact, they have an extra-extraextra-extra-large problem to wrap their minds and belts around. The British retailer High & Mighty has just introduced the country's biggest no-special-order-required suit, an XXXXL frock intended for a 60-inch waist. And, by the way, 60 inches is five feet when not using that all-too-easy metric system everyone else seems to love. A 60-inch waist equates to a height where children are deemed too short to ride many roller coasters. And when we have people with waistlines longer than a fifth-grade kid, we've got a problem. At a time when, across the pond, obesity puts a $78 billion price tag on America's health care, and when Mississippi, the longtime holder of the dubious title of the fattest state in the union, has an obesity rate of more than one in three people, we have a problem. Back to the English High & Mighty problem, which we can only assume does not bode well for the makers of the whitey tighties, recent studies suggest one in five Bntish men has a waist larger than 38 inches. While we haven't seen any marketable XXXXS suits, we wonder if stores like High & Mighty are actively fighting the obesity pandemic or encouraging it by making a 60-inch-waistline suit. Regardless of the answer, we have a senous multibillion dollar problem on our grease-laden, Cheetosstained hands. a ll e independent ftorida al gao Emily Fuggetta EDITOR Paul Runnestrand Stefania Ferro MANAGING EDITORS Jared Misner OPINIONS EDITOR The Alligator encourages comments from readers Letters to the editor should not exceed 150 words (about one etter-sized page) They mustbe typed, double-spaced and must include the author's name, classification and phone number Names wiii be withheld if the writer shows just cause We reserve the right to edit for length, grammar, styie and iibei Send letters to ietters@aiiigatororg, bring them to 1105 W University A or send them to PO Box 14257, GainesviIle, FL 32604-2257Columns of about 450 words about original topics and editorial cartoons are also welcome Questions?

By the time this is printed, we should know who most of you are. For those of you who kept us up all night, thanks a lot. Wait, who am I kidding? The percentage of students at UF who stayed up late on election night is surely less than 5 percent, right? And only a bit more will actually vote in the midterms despite the virtuous efforts of local political organizations, campaigns and independent groups like Rock the Vote. More students are interested in the end of attack ads between Steve Oelrich and Perry McGriff or between Alex Sink and Rick Scott than to actually help decide which one of them will be governing all of us. Maybe I'm weird, but I was incredibly excited to vote in this election as it was my first since turning 18. Furthermore, I consider myself a center-left kind of guy, so based on the political climate this year, "excited" isn't a word that comes to most of my like-minded colleagues' minds when thinking about a midterm election that was scheduled to dissipate the Democratic party's supermajority. But just wait, Republicans, here's some advice you could have used. Republicans, you shot yourselves in the foot with candidates like Christine O'Donnell, whose largest claim to fame was witchcraft, and Sharron Angle, who makes last year's incarnation of Joaquin Phoenix look like a media darling. It's my personal belief this is not a mandate against the Obama Administration. The chief issue behind this past election is, yet again, the economy. After the stimulus package in 2009 and the official end of the recession back in June, consumers just still aren't confident. The Republicans need to be careful, however. The Tea Party might surge to power based on two major issues: ipping Sean Quinn letters@alligator.org 0 cutt low tier tha it h sust wor leve hea rwese Kilbs ARE SO L AZY?

Not only are all four of these candidates gaffe-prone, but their election into national office, God forbid the office of the president of the U.S., could result in turmoil both here and abroad. Why's that? The Tea Party stems out of legitimate concern and a legitimate political perspective, one I don't subscribe to, but not an unreasonable political view. However, it's the supporters who often throw their own movement under the bus. Either by displaying signs with racial slurs, Photoshopping the president of the U.S. with a Hitler mustache or screaming socialism in an attempt to be the anti-vanguard, the movement loses credibility daily. So a few congratulations are in order. Pop that champagne, Republicans. Don't adjust your television, Speaker John Boehner is really that orange (Watch out Snooki) and get ready for the sprint to the center. Democrats, know that Obama has to compromise if he wants to be re-elected, but Republicans should know that Tea Partiers aren't a shoo-in either. Sean Quinn is afirst-year political science student.

WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 3, 2010 U ALLIGATOR, 7 Media's credibility falling Mediocre journalism does more harm than good. Tuesday's article on Google's autonomous vehicles is the example I will pick on, but I mean no disrespect to either the writer of the piece or those interviewed. First, the interviewees were not qualified to give valuable insight on the issue. Why not interview an on-campus expert such as Carl Crane of CIMAR, who has been working with autonomous vehicles for years? The interviewee selection in this article in specific is similar to asking a cosmetic surgeon and a medical student for insight on an experimental cancer treatment. The interviewees may be good at what they do, but they are not qualified to speak about other topics. While it might be true that a professor and a student both expressed concerns about the Google vehicle, the plural voice of skepticism indicated in the subtitle is inaccurate and harmful. This gives the public the impression there should be concern about these vehicles, thus hampering any chance for safer roads. Journalism should be treated more like science where results can be verified and repeated. In other words, articles need to have better sampling, less bias and a bit of critical thinking in their design. Seeing this every day, I am quite disappointed with the media. For better or worse, the media have a lot of influence on popular opinion. We would be better off if the voice of the media took a logical approach to informing us instead of presenting random blathering to fill space and meet deadlines. Bryan Hood UF student E And I thought Halloween was over. Vote for me! *0 / AAk WikiLeaks-released documents were important to country he release of nearly 400,000 confidential Iraq war documents on Oct. 22 by the WikiLeaks website revealed startling image of the secret history of the war in Iraq. The documents contain details of events reported by the United States military and provide evidence of systematic torture and rape used as weapons of warfare. Sixty percent of the deaths registered in the documents are civilians. The documents reveal the use of indiscriminate and disproportionate force used and condoned by the US military. They also raise substantial questions concerning war crimes. This leak has been the largest release of classified military documents in history. Critics argue the release of this sensitive information will jeopardize US military operations and be used by opposition forces to seek out and kill Iraqi civilian informants working with the US military. Supporters of the whistleblower website contend the documents contain information the public deserves to know. According to the documents, as many as 15,000 Iraqi civilian deaths were previously unaccounted for. When President Obama was elected, he promised to conduct his administration with transparency. The amount of secrets revealed within the documents WikiLeaks released flies in the face of such promises. Obama's promise for transparency has gone the way of his promise to close Guantanamo Bay. To be fair, the files document the Iraq war during a time Obama was not president, but that doesn't excuse him from failing to hold the Bush administration accountable. Secrets and lies are what paraded the U.S. into the war in Iraq. The WikiLeaks files reveal that secrets and lies have only prolonged that war. It is difficult to justify a war waged under false pretenses. Stephen Bartholomew UWire It is also tough to support a war effort that tolerates torture and civilian murder and gives private contractors free reign. Julian Assange is the spokesperson and editor-in-chief for the WikiLeaks website. As would be expected, he is receiving a great deal of flak for releasing the Iraq documents. News organizations are wondering why he isn't dead yet and claiming that the U.S. government should list him as an enemy combatant, which would deprive him of the right to due process. This doesn't seem right. Shouldn't he be considered a champion of truth and democracy? Don't the people have a right to know about the sort of devastation and destruction that is happening in their name, with their tax dollars? The WikiLeaks files are important for the historical record as primary documentation of the many mishandlings of a complicated war. It appears the media is more concerned with attacking Julian Assange than with discussing the issue of human rights the documents raise. In 1971, Daniel Ellsberg, a former Rand Corporation employee, released Department of Defense documents that detailed the United States political-military involvement in Vietnam from 1945 to 1967. The documents became known as the Pentagon Papers and indicated, among other things, that the Johnson administration had systematically lied to the public and to Congress. The publication of the papers caused a national outcry for government transparency and accountability. Today, the socio-political landscape is much different. Many major media outlets have expressed their disgust over the release of the WikiLeaks documents. On the other hand, some media sources commend the website for its courage and goodwill comment of being unsurprised by the lack of government honesty. There is no palpable call to action or demand for accountability. Instead the politically discontent shrug their shoulders and brush off the failure of military responsibility. Wikileaks is trying to pull the wool out of the eyes of a world that prefers to live in the dark. An Army whistleblower, Spc. Bradley Manning, is currently in custody. He is suspected for leaking thousands of Iraq war documents to WikiLeaks. The Obama administration has brought as many prosecutions for leaks to the American public as all previous administrations combined. Granted, it is a small number -three -but it is still important to note. The administration is also threatening to use the Espionage Act to prevent further leaks. If that happens, the American public will know even less about the destruction that is happening in their name. This past summer, WikiLeaks released over 70,000 documents relating to the Afghanistan war. The same national security concerns were raised at the time. But the Associated Press recently obtained a pentagon letter stating that no US intelligence services or practices were damaged after the release of the documents. For a democracy to function as a true democracy the governing body must live up to the public's expectation of transparency and accountability. WikiLeaks is providing information that the United States government was expected, but failed, to provide. The Iraq documents establish firmer ground for dissidents to stand upon in denouncing this despairingly unjust war. Stephen Bartholomew is a student at the University of Toledo. Vote for me! -'p

8, ALLIGATOR U WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 3,2010 Republicans take local seats, mirror state STEVE OELRICH WON BY MORE THAN 10,000 VOTES. BY C.J. Pruner Alligator Staff Writer Keeping in lockstep with the wave of Republican revival that swept elections across the nation and state, local Democrats seeking office took a beating at the polls Tuesday. In a District 14 Florida State Senate race marked with heated political exchange, Republican incumbent Steve Oelrich carried the conservative momentum, defeating Democratic challenger Perry C. McGriff Jr. by more than 10,000 votes. Addressing a crowd of supporters at the Hampton Inn in downtown Gainesville to watch election results, a disappointed McGriff attempted to make peace with the defeat while thanking campaign staff and supporters for their effort. Although he acknowledged a sense of hurt at some of Oelrich's campaign ads, especially one regarding McGriff's position on adoption, McGriff said that he gave Oelrich a congratulatory call that was "short and to the point" and told supporters that he would continue to be involved in public service. "The Lord has wrapped his arms around me so I'll be OK," he said. "Life will go on." The race for County Commission District 4 produced one of the more surprising results of the night as Democratic candidate Cynthia Chestnut was defeated by Republican Susan Baird by more than 5,000 votes. "The Lord has wrapped his arms around me, so I'll be OK." Perry C. McGriff Jr. Democratic nominee But it wasn't all gloom for Democrats locally, as Lee Pinkoson won his contest for a seat on the County Commission District 2. He defeated the Republican candidate, Jim Gabriel, by a margin of more than 8,000 votes. Jon Reiskind, the chairman of the Alachua County Democratic Party Executive Committee, said that while a Republican backlash was to be expected, the results still served as a disappointment for a party that, he believes, needs to reconnect with the public in order to improve from its midterm showing. Although Reiskind acknowledged that Democrats have their work cut out for them between now and the next election, he remains optimistic that the party can recover. "It's a sad day for the Democrats but it's not a tragic day," he said. ivima eea/ saxomar aian Perry C. McGriff Jr. gives a speech to supporters Tuesday at the downtown Hampton Inn and Suites. Rubio Senate win fueled by anti-Obama mood THE ASSOCIATED PRESS CORAL GABLES (AP) -Tea party favorite Marco Rubio capped his dramatic rise with an easy win Tuesday over Gov. Charlie Crist and U.S. Rep. Kendrick Meek in the race for Florida's open Senate seat, keeping it with the GOP. With 78 percent of precincts reporting, Rubio had about 50 percent of the vote, to 29 percent for Crist, who left the Republican Party earlier this year to run as an independent when polls showed him trailing in a GOP primary. Democratic nominee Meek had 19.6 percent. "We make a great mistake if we believe that tonight these results are somehow an embrace of the Republican party," Rubio told supporters at a rally, referring to his and other GOP wins around the country. "What they are is a second chance, a second chance for Republicans to be what they said they were going to be not so long ago." Sen.-elect Marco Rubio, R-Fla., thanks supporters in Coral Gables with his daughter Amanda, 7, and son Anthony, 4, after winning his senate bid Tuesday. Rubio, a former speaker of the Florida House, was given little chance to defeat Crist when he announced his candidacy last year. Rubio will replace George LeMieux, who was appointed to the seat last year after Mel Martinez resigned. Moments before the race was called, former Gov. Jeb Bush walked into the room where Rubio was watching returns and said, "Congratulations!" "Why? Do you guys know something we don't?" Rubio replied. When news agencies declared him the winner, the room erupted with roars. Rubio kept looking at the television and joked. "C'mon! I'm trying to hear about Kentucky!" Bush said he supported Rubio from the beginning. "I'm so proud of him and he ran a spectacular race. "It's a great day for the conservative cause. New people with new thinking, new ideas -21st century solutions." Rubio built momentum through tea party rallies, driving around the state on a tight budget and often without staff to talk to any conservative group that would listen. His message was consistent: President Barack Obama's domestic spending and health care policies are a disaster and the nation will spiral downward if spending isn't controlled. "When you're 35 points down in the polls and the only people who think you can win live in your house, and four of them are under the age of 10, you better know why your running," Rubio said in his victory speech. Party leaders in Tallahassee and Washington tried to force him out of the race so then-Republican Crist could walk to the nomination. But Rubio believed Crist wasn't a principled conservative and used the image of the governor hugging Obama at a rally to push for the $787 billion stimulus package to whittle away at Crisfs support. For months, Crist acted as if he were the only candidate in the race. Then Rubio's fundraising and poll numbers increased to the point that Crist was the underdog. Meanwhile, Meek struggled to gain traction as the media focused on the intense battle for the Republican nomination.

WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 3, 2010 U ALLIGATOR, 9 Barber moves to smaller space By JON SILMAN Alligator Staff Writer For 37 years, the pepper-haired man with the oval spectacles has been cutting Gators' hair. Because of tough times -or maybe in spite of them -Jay Jarrell, 59, moved his Reitz Union Barber Shop to a smaller space about the size of his old waiting area. Before the move, he said, he was barely treading water. "The last ten years have been a real struggle to break even," he said. "The last ten years have been a real struggle to break even." Jay Jarrell Owner of Reitz Union Barber Shop He anticipates the new space, which opened Monday, will be better for business. He'd been asking the Reitz Union management for a smaller place for some time, and when the old Freshens spot opened up, he jumped on it. The space is smaller than he would've liked, but "you can't pick and choose space like that in a building like this." Jarrell has significant ties to the Gator nation. He graduated with a degree in psychology, his son and daughter were Gators and his parents were season ticket holders. He hopes that his grandchildren will attend UF as well. He likes cutting students' hair because they're bright and have a clear way of communicating what they want. He's been a barber for a long time, and his job provides him with the means to live, but what he does doesn't define him or his happiness. "Some people say you have to love what you do to be a Max Reed / Alligator Staff The Reitz Union Barber Shop has served UF for more than 42 years. It changed locations for the first time since 1967 and reopened in its new space Monday. happy person, but I'm just not convinced," he said. For him, the simple things are enough. He loves his church and his hobbies. The first haircut he gave in the new space was to his 8-month-old grandson. His dad always told him that as a barber he may not always have steak, but he'd always have hamburger. He wants to cut his hours when he turns 67. Sometimes he's on his feet for 10 hours a day, and he knows he can't work like that forever. For now, he's enjoying the smaller workload of the new space and the financial ease -the rent is $375 now, $1,525 less than before. "If I'm blessed enough to be in good health, I'd work until I'm 72 or so," he said, "at which time I'd like to be able to shoot my age in golf."

Sports WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 3, 2010 ALLIGATOR www.alligatorSports.org Donovan to test tall Matt Tripp/ Alligator Staff UF coach Billy Donovan is expected to use centers Vernon Macklin (above) and Patric Young together tonight. Halapio rebounds from slow start, injuries By KYLE MAISTRI Alligator Staff Writer kmaistri@alligator org Film session was a sobering experience for Jon Halapio just days after Florida took on Miami (Ohio) in the season opener. The redshirt freshman guard was routinely beat and looked lost at times against what should have been an overmatched RedHawks defensive line. "After the first game I was horrible. I was disgusted with myself," Halapio said. "I can't believe I was on the field playing like that. I promised myself Football that it wouldn't happen again. Halapio graded out a 55 percent by his coaches using a formula no one outside of the UF football team is familiar with, but it's safe to say a 55 is a failing grade whether he was being graded on pass blocking or chemistry. SEE FOOTBALL, PAGE 15 lineup in exhit By GREG LUCA Alligator Staff Writer gluca@alligator org After playing with what he called a 6-1/2man rotation last year, coach Billy Donovan has to be salivating over the lineup combinations available to him this season. For the first time since the departure of the heralded '04s, the Gators' coach believes he will be able to use both larger and smaller variations of his starting five. No. 11 Florida will put a few of those groupings on display tonight at 7 in the O'Connell Center when it squares off against Georgetown (Ky.) College in its second and final exhibition game. After experimenting with numerous lineups in Flonda's opener and limiting seniors Alex Tyus and Vernon Macklin to just 10 and 12 minutes, respectively. Donovan said he will return to more traditional looks in tonight's matchup. "My No. 1 goal going into the (Florida Tech) game was to try to get enough minutes for all the freshman," Donovan said. "So the lineups we had out there a lot of times were maybe lineups that we wouldn't have necessarily in a lot of regular-season games." This could mean more action for Florida's starting five, which only saw about six minutes of playing time against Florida Tech. Also likely to see more minutes is a larger lineup that includes freshman Patric Young and senior Vernon Macklin. Donovan first tinkered with playing the two former McDonald's All-Americans together in team practices and scrimmages, and the unit yielded encouraging results. "I think it's a good look," senior Chandler Parsons said. "It's different and I think it's just another lineup we can throw out there with the pieces that we have." The duo played together for 2:52 of the team's exhibition opener, a stretch when the Gators were outscored 11-5. eight games in, we still don't really know the UF offense. Sure, fans were ready to write the unit off before last week. Fire the offensive coordinator. Bench the quarterback. Promote verbal commit Jeff Driskel from Hagerty High like a Triple-A relief pitcher. Then the Gators rolled up to Jacksonville and brought some Outdoor-CocktailParty fun with them. UF used a flashy two-quarterbacks-on-one-field system and even went no huddle. Florida's offense gained 450 yards, its ition game Macklin and Young combined for 0 points and 0 rebounds in the initial test run. But their mere presence generated a trio of long-range shooting opportunities for the Gators, as the Panthers were forced to divert their defensive attention to the interior. "I think it's a good look. It's different and I think it's just another lineup we can throw out there with the pieces that we have." Chandler Parsons UF forward "That's something that we gotta continue to work on in practice," Donovan said. At the Southeastern Conference's media day, Donovan remarked that the two "kinda got in each other's way," as each is accustomed to playing center and controlling the paint. The configuration requires Macklin to shift from his traditional role out to the power forward position, where he is learning new responsibilities like taking the ball out and playing at the top of the press. Even if the unit is eventually scrapped, senior Alex Tyus and the remaining Gators will have benefitted from working against it in practice. "It was just like a regular SEC game," Tyus said. "Pat plays real physical, and Vern's a great player." Another lineup the Gators have experimented with uses guards Kenny Boynton, Erving Walker and Scottie Wilbekin simultaneously, although practice as a trio has been put on hold due to Wilbekin's neck strain. The only time the alignment was actually featured was in an intrasquad scnmmage, where it received positive reviews. "It was fun," Boynton said. "Our team was very intense. We got a lot of steals and basically for the time that we were in we were a speed team."

WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 3, 2010 E ALLIGATOR, 15 McCarney denies coaching rumors narris n uiam na/ 'igra"r ian Guard Jon Halapio (67) missed UF's Oct. 16 loss to Mississippi State due to a broken finger on his right hand. FOOTBALL, from page 14 A rash of injuries to the offensive line kept Halapio in the rotation, regardless of his struggles, and he vowed to put that performance behind him. Eight weeks later, Halapio is garnering praise from both head coach Urban Meyer and offensive line coach Steve Addazio for his contributions to the team. "Remember that name," Meyer said after Halapio graded out a champion this week against Georgia. Halapio worked on cleaning up his technique, and the game started to become less of a foreign language to him as he got more and more snaps under his belt. In film sessions, he sits behind senior Mike Pouncey, who earned All-American honors at Halapio's right guard position last season, and picks the senior's brain on how to improve his game. "I try to watch Mike Pouncey on every single play because he's just a natural baller," Halapio said. "I love watching him and I want to follow his footsteps and I want to be just like him because he practices hard and he plays hard." Halapio said one of the toughest parts of college football for him has been playing through injuries, something he wasn't able to do against Mississippi State. He was held out of the loss to the Bulldogs after undergoing surgery on a finger on his right hand, which sustained a break the previous week against LSU. "I almost passed out when I looked at it because my bone was sticking out," Halapio said. "It's probably the worst pain I've ever felt." But Halapio will gladly take a few more bumps and bruises as long as he doesn't have to endure the pain of watching another performance like Week 1 on video. I almost passed out when I looked at it because my bone was sticking out." Jon Halaplo UF guard McCarney hasn't heard from Minnesota: UF defensive line coach Dan McCarney, who was the head coach at Iowa State from 1995-2006, has been rumored as a candidate for the head coaching vacancy at Minnesota. But McCarney said Tuesday that he hasn't had any contact with the program. "No communication. None whatsoever," McCarney said. TYLER, from page 14 up the scoreboard Saturday. Including Will "The (occasional) Thrill" Hill's overtime interception, half of Florida's points were preceded by turnovers in its 34-31 win against Georgia. And that's been the theme all season. Florida leads the SEC with 93 points off turnovers this year. Auburn ranks second with 90 points, and the other 10 teams are averaging 41.5 points off interceptions and fumbles. At first glance, the War Eagle/ Tigers/ Raging Cam Newtons seem comparable to Florida in the area. But, leading the conference with 40 points per game, Auburn does not rely on turnovers nearly as much as Florida. To understand just how hard the Gators lean on turnovers, consider this: 41 percent of the team's points come after defensive takeaways. For the 11 SEC teams not named Florida, about 20 percent of their points fall under the same category. About one-quarter of Auburn's points come off turnovers. In UF's five wins, the Gators sport a plus-11 turnover margin. In its three losses? Minus-six. That, of course, is not surprising. In the three hours a day producers release him from his cage, even ESPN's Skip Bayless could tell you turning the ball over is very bad. But how comfortable do you feel about your team if its identity revolves around forcing turnovers? Some chalk takeaways up to right-place, right-time, good-bounce-of-the-ball luck. But a talented defense will get its hands on the ball more than a mediocre one, and Florida's been able to force turnovers because of the skill of its defensive backs. The Gators are lied for first nationally with 16 interceptions, while the team ranks 113th with just three forced fumbles. Janoris Jenkins' interception on the first play of Saturday's game, when he jumped anA.J. Green hitch route, came because Jenkins has good instincts and can quickly change direction. Theoretically, though, a team is going to force a lot of turnovers by dominating up front. But the Gators rank 66th with 15 sacks this season, so opposing quarterbacks aren't making bad decisions because they're under pressure. And Florida has, on occasion, been lucky. Urban Meyer won't factor luck into the game because that implies parts of his job can't be controlled through hard work. It's understandable logic, but that doesn't mean its true. Both of The Thrill's interceptions came when lipped passes sailed right to him. He even said after the game that his overlime interception fell right in his lap. Again, not every interception or forced fumble is blind luck. Most aren't. But some are. And the Gators might need a few opportunities to fall in their lap if they want the rest of the season to be memorable. Bell loses fight with cancer THE ASSOCIATED PRESS STARKVILLE, Miss. -Mississippi State defensive end Nick Bell died Tuesday at the University of Alabama-Birmingham Hospital after a short battle with cancer. Bell, a 20-year-old from Bessemer, Ala., was diagnosed in late September after experiencing headaches during football practice and had surgery on Oct. 1 to remove a mass from his brain. He had emergency surgery on Monday morning after it was found that the cancer had aggressively spread throughout his body. "Nick was a son and he was a brother to everyone in this football family," a somber Mississippi State coach Dan Mullen said Tuesday night. "I know he's looking down on us right now and I'm sure he's already been picked for a team up in heaven to play football again the game that he loved." Mullen held a team meeting on Tuesday afternoon, where he informed the players Bell had died. The Bulldogs went ahead with their regularly scheduled practice. School officials said counselors were available for students and staff, and practice wasn't mandatory. "That's a sanctuary for our coaches, our players and our football family to be out there together doing the thing we love most," Mullen said. "It kind of felt good to sweat out some of the feelings and emotions that were inside." After Bell's initial surgery on Oct. 1, there was optimism about his recovery. He returned to campus on Oct. 23 and visited teammates on the sideline during the Bulldogs' victory over Alabama-Birmingham. Bell But his condition deteriorated quickly over the past week, and he was rushed to the hospital on Sunday. About 50 Mississippi State players and coaches visited Bell and his family at UAB Hospital on Monday evening. "We grabbed a bus and loaded up a bunch of guys," Mullen said. "I think its great that a lot of our players got to go over there, see the situation and get to say their goodbyes." Marlins stick with Rodriguez THE ASSOCIATED PRESS MIAMI -Edwin Rodriguez will get to start what he finished -a season as manager of the Florida Marlins. After considering other candidates, the Marlins decided to keep Rodriguez, a person familiar with the search said Tuesday. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the Marlins weren't planning an announcement until Wednesday. Rodriguez became the first Puerto Rican manager in the major leagues when he took over as interim manager June 23 after Fredi Gonzalez was fired. Rodriguez, who has been in baseball 30 years, managed Florida's Triple-A team in New Orleans before getting his first big league job. Rodriguez was popular with players and won praise for his handling of All-Star shortstop Hanley Ramirez, whose attitude became an issue after he was benched by Gonzalez for not hustling early last season. Gonzalez was dismissed with Florida at 34-36 and in fourth place in the NL East. Rodriguez went 46-46, and the Marlins finished third. Gonzalez was hired last month to replace the retiring Bobby Cox as manager of the Atlanta Braves. The Marlins' decision to keep Rodriguez was first reported by the South Florida Sun Sentinel on its website. There has been speculation that owner Jeffrey Loria might want a high-profile manager when the team moves into its new ballpark in 2012. But president of baseball operations Larry Beinfest hinted last month that Rodriguez f l N, might be the right match for the team's perennially young roster. MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL "This job is a unique job," Beinfest said then. "If's a little bit of a manager who can grow with the team, get the most out of them, develop them and create a winning culture." While the Marlins are young, they believe they're on the verge of playoff contention. On the final day of the regular season, Rodriguez said he had high expectations for next year. "This organization is in very good shape," he said. "I can picture this organization being in a pennant race next year, and obviously for 2012, when we move into the new ballpark, hopefully we should be in the World Series."

16, ALLIGATOR U WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 3,2010 Gators look to win first SEC Tournament since 2007 FLORIDA WILL TAKE ON VANDERBILT TONIGHT AT 6. By JESSE SIMONTON Alligator Writer Fresh off its fifth consecutive regular-season Southeastern Conference Championship, No. 7 Florida enters the SEC Tournament tonight as a confident team hungry for the taste of another title. Despite their recent regularseason successes, the Gators haven't won a conference tournament since 2007. Tonight's tilt against Vanderbilt is Florida's first chance to erase the two-year drought. "Our team is taking a lot of pride in winning [the tournament] because they realize this is a really good setting to practice for next week's [NCAA Tournament] oneand-done scenario," coach Becky Burleigh said. The Gators (15-2-2, 9-1-1 SEC) kick off the tournament tonight in Orange Beach, Ala., at 6 against the Commodores (8-9-2, 4-5-2 SEC) sporting multiple five-game winning streaks. Florida has won its last five regular-season games, and it has won all five meetings against Vanderbilt in the conference tournament's history. Florida has outscored Vanderbilt 16-3 in those contests. Earlier this season, the Gators dominated the Commodores in a 2-0 victory in Nashville,Tenn., but Burleigh expects a different team this time. "They didn't have their leading scorer," she said. "Playing a team for the second time is really hard. Teams make adjustments and it becomes a sort of cat-and-mouse game the second time around." Although Vanderbilt enters the tournament as the lowest seed, Florida isn't taking any chances and is approaching the match with 2 Saj Guevara/ Alligator UF sophomore Kat Williamson was named to the All-SEC first team on Tuesday. She also won SEC Defensive Player of the Year. the mindset of just one game at a time, senior Kat Williamson said. While the Gators eyes are honed in on the ultimate goal, they know that the Commodores need to win the tournament just to qualify for the NCAAs. "Teams are willing to throw different looks," Burleigh said. "I expect them to come our firing. Desperate times call for desperate measures. Williamson named 2010 SEC Defensive Player of the Year: Quietly, the Gators' most consistent player this season has been the rock on the back line. Williamson was rewarded for her solid play Tuesday. The SEC announced its 2010 All-Conference teams and individual award winners, and despite several Gators players receiving recognition, Williamson received the highest praise: being named the SEC Defensive Player of the Year. Often overlooked because of Florida's high-powered offense, Williamson, a sophomore, has started every game the past two seasons and has filled in valiantly for last year's SEC Defensive Player of the Year, Lauren Hyde. "She's done an amazing job," keeper Katie Frame said. "She's such an intense player and is one that shows that heart is more important than size." Despite being 5-foot-6, Williamson is described as a warrior by teammates, and a player the Gators rely on to win games. "She's the most physical and aggressive player on our team," Fraine said. "She refuses to lose. Her competitiveness is what makes her so good." Williamson was the only returning starter from the back line a year ago, but the first team AllSEC player led the way meshing the group into a fearsome foursome. "It's something we've had to work on throughout the year," Williamson said. "But I think we've kind of figured it out." "She's done a terrific job," Burleigh said. "She's super competitive, and she really makes up for a lot of our mistakes." Burleigh, others also honored: While Williamson was named the Defensive Player of the Year, several other Gators, including Burleigh, picked up accolades Tuesday. Burleigh was named the 2010 SEC Coach of the Year, the fourth time she's been honored with the award. Florida's coach has led the team since its inaugural season in 1995, guiding the Gators to 11 SEC titles and one national championship. Five Gators were named to the 2010 All-SEC teams including forward Taylor Travis, who picked up several awards, most notably being named 2010 SEC Freshman of the Year.
