Christian Aguilar, an 18-year-old biomedical engineering freshman from Miami, was last seen at about 6 p.m. Thursday after he was dropped off in a parking lot on the 4900 block of Northwest 13th Street, according to a GPD news release. Aguilars friends and family havent seen or heard from him since he disappeared. GPD described Aguilar as a 5-foot-3-inch Hispanic male, wearing a hoodie and jeans, according to the release.

KATHERINE HAHNAlligator Contributing WriterAfter Florida Gov. Rick Scotts initial voting purge of potential noncitizens was over, one Alachua County voter was removed. Four names including at least one UF student were on the 2012 list of people who would potentially be kicked off the voting rolls, according to Alachua County Supervisor of Elections Pam Carpenter. Here in Alachua County, it was not a huge story, she said. There was an original list of 180,000 potential noncitizen voters across the state, Carpenter said. She said it caused uproar in larger cities such as Miami and Tampa in those areas, which meant their lists were longer. Since the list was released, some have taken the issue to court, including UF professor Daniel Smith who is giving expert testimony in one of those cases. Smith, a political science professor, spoke with a UF graduate student whose name was on the initial list of 180,000 people.

JEWEL MIDELISAlligator Contributing WriterGainesville pizzerias are raking in the dough this year. Sales at pizza restaurants nationwide will reach $36.1 billion at the end of 2012, which is up 3.8 percent from 2011, according to a study released on Sept. 17 by Packaged Facts, a market research company for consumer goods. Some Gainesville pizza restaurants said they are enjoying the effects of the national increase. Paul Gillespie, owner of two of the three Five Star Pizza restaurants in Gainesville, said there is an increase in sales compared to 2011. He said 2008 was the busiest year ever for his restaurants, but he said this year will become the second busiest. Pepperoni is his best seller. Gillespie said the restaurant is doing a bit better than it was this time last year. As of the end of August, Five Star was up 2.3 percent for the year, he said. Jen Silva, manager of the Pizza Hut on Archer Road, said her restaurant is doing better than the national percent increase. As a whole, more than that average at this location, she said. At least a 5 to 10 percent increase since last year. We are doing very well. Leonardos By the Slice manager Mike McGuire said the business is doing well, but it is still too early to tell, since the restaurants main clientele is students and because it is the beginning of football season. With a plastic fork and knife in hand, Aultemar Martins ate two slices of pizza covered in sausage and other meats in the Reitz Union. The 18-year-old, who moved from Angola three months ago, is learning English at UF. He said he eats pizza about three times a week. Pizza is the easiest lunch, he said. I prefer Pizza Hut because its the easiest to order online.

They hoped to develop this technology to allow nuclear reactors to be used in space.

He won racial integration of UF graduate and professional schools under the condition he would not be permitted entrance. Should the student union be renamed after Virgil Hawkins? At a previous hearing, Ariana Alfonso, a former supervisor of elections and current law student, asked the court to review the language of the referendum again. At Fridays meeting, she was introduced as the solicitor general, Alfonso said the language as it stood misled the students and slandered Reitz. She said the court should amend and review the referendum so the language is not biased. endum, said the school may have expanded under Reitzs leadership, but his record is still referendum was factual.

Associate Justice Alex Andrade, who was not present at the initial hearing, proposed denying the referendum as a whole and letcleaned-up version to put on the ballot. Andrade said the signatures collected were tainted because they were collected under proper. But Associate Justice Tim Mason disagreed. He said that no matter the wording used in the referendum, plained Hawkins achievements and Reitzs actions when conveying his message to potential signers. I dont think it would have made much of a difference, Mason said. But he agreed that the wording was biased and proposed removing the language that referred to Reitz. Associate Justice Cole Sullivan proposed that only the question in the referendum remain on the ballot. He said it would be abusing the courts power to strike the referendum down as a whole.

By 2016 the industry is planned to be Obama, alongside all major automaker CEOs, stated in 2011: This agreement on fuel standards represents the single most important step weve ever taken as a nation to reduce our dependence on foreign oil. The companies here today have endorsed our plan to continue increasing the mileage As Obama put it: This agreement was arrived at without legislation. You are all demonstrating what can happen when people put aside differences these folks are competitors, youve got labor and business, but they decided, were going to work together to achieve something important and with Citi Investment Research to conduct a study to assess thing that was noticed was that higher standards mean standards and that all automakers will see an increase of tries will become more competitive internationally, which is important for our need to start selling more goods overseas. Those who claim the technology is not there are simply misinformed. Mitt Romneys campaign representative Andrea Saul said: Gov. Romney opposes the extreme standards that President Obama has imposed, which will limit the choices available to American families. The president tells voters that his regulations will save them thousands of dollars at the pump but always forgets to mention that the savings will be wiped out by having to pay thousands of dollars more upfront for unproven technology Alan Baum of Baum & Associates (a business that provides research and analysis for the automotive and related industries) says: There is a whole variety of technology to meet the standard. And the primary method will be the internal combustion engine. The automakers understand cost of the automotive technologies would be outweighed heavily by the savings consumers make at the pump. for this economy, all families and the environment. Not only has Romney stated his disapproval of this plan, but he has stated he will do what he can to reverse it should he become president. The greatest thing you can do to help with this issue is either vote for a reelection of Obama or do what you can to convince Romney of the dangers of reversSupporting not just Obamas plan but this trend is incredibly important and after being informed of the facts and numbers, it becomes a no-brainer.

MONDAY, SEPTEMBER, 24, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 7Letter to the EditorTo my fellow Gators, As this semester comes to a midpoint, I wanted to take a moment to address the Student Body regarding the upcoming Fall elections. In the coming weeks, Student Body elections for senators will be taking place across campus. In Fall, 50 candidates are elected to represent the various living locations of all students. There are 13 residence hall areas that have senators elected to reptricts District A, B, C, D and E that represent our students living off campus. Spring semester will see elections taking place for senators representing their academic college or year in school such as freshmen and sophomore. As Senate President, I have had the opportunity to see the tremendous work that Student Government is able to accomplish on behalf of the students. SG has completed projects such as having Library West open troduction of cellphone charging stations on campus. SG also continues to champion student needs by advocating in Tallahassee and Washington, D.C. SG is able to do this through the support of the Student Body, and furthermore, through the elections of senators and others by students in general elections. It is the responsibility and duty of senators to accurately represent and champion the needs, the services and the voice of students. Because of this, I urge all students to become informed about the upcoming elections for SG and to participate by voting on Oct. 2 and 3. and a wealth of information concerning SG. You can also visit the SG website at www. Take care, and go, Gators! Logan Harrison Senate president Student Government When I came to study in the United States a year ago, I never thought that I could be penalized for exercising my right to free speech on the campus of a public university. But a decision by the UF Supreme Court last Friday means that very thing could now happen to any one of us, and as a student senator, I want to make sure every UF student knows about it. During the Summer while most of us were away, members of the majority Swamp Party then the Unite Party in your Student Senate made an absurd rule stating that if anyone encourages you to vote for them in a Student Government election more than a week before ballot. Ridiculously, this means that for another week I cannot even let you know whether or not theres an election on Oct. 2 and 3. Two weeks ago, I went to the student-run Court to ar gue that the Senates decision should be ruled as a violation of your First Amendment rights. There are clear provisions in the Student Body Constitution and the election statutes saying that SG will respect the rights granted by federal and state law. The UF Supreme Court has even referred to federal or state cases in the past when making judgments. But despite all of that, the current Court decided on Friday that it believes it does not have jurisdiction to decide how federal or state laws should be interpreted. The effect of this decision is potentially chilling. It means that even if the Student Senate decided to make the most oppressive rules about elections, the Supreme Court has declared itself powerless to do anything. For example, if the majority in the Senate decides that it is forbidden to criticize the Unite Party or now the Swamp Party in any way, there is nothing the Court will do. Essentially theyre saying, Sure, your right to free speech may well have been horribly violated. If you think thats the case, go to a district court outside of UF because we cant help you. Thats all well and good, except that most students would have no idea of how to appeal to a district court and even if they did, it is prohibitively expensive. In any case, a district court might take years to hear the case or never hear it at all. I believe that if the UF Supreme Court cannot or will not act as a mediator in cases where students rights are clearly violated, the system of checks and balances in our no one else to defend their rights. So, we will be appealing their law professors and the Florida Bar about whether the decision they reached last week was correct. Failing that, we will take this to the UF administration and, if necessary, beyond. Your right to speak freely on campus about who spends more than $17 million of your money every year is at stake it really is that important. David Bradshaw is a senator and campaign manager for the Students Party.Student Government campaign rules obstruct free speechGuest columnDavid BradshawSpeaking Out As an avid feminist and admirer of empowered women everywhere, I was thrilled when I found out Michelle Obama was coming to speak at the Stephen C. OConnell Center. Once my friend Hannah told me the news, I got into my car and drove to campus. and drenched in sweat, but I still thought it was worth it. Not even the parking ticket on my dashboard could bring me down. On the day of the event, the two of us could hardly contain our excitement. As we were getting closer to the entrance, one of the staff members came up and asked if we were in a group. Its just us, I said. She asked if us included the man who was next to Hanthe answer, she placed green stickers on our tickets. We assumed it was a way to keep track of students, so we proceeded toward the security checkpoint. As it turns out, the stickers allowed us to enter the arena without having to go up the stairs like everyone else. The fast passes led us to incredible seats about 15 feet from the lectern. While Hannah read a textbook, I noticed the juxtaposition of the cameras and the people who were sitting next to us. Thats when it hit me I had waited seven hours to be used as a human prop. The four rows had an unusually large number of Hispanic, black and Asian students. There were sprinkles of white people in the group, but minorities took up most of the space. Granted, we were all there because we wanted to hear the speech, but by putting us all in the glamour shot, they our seats. When I pointed out my theory, one of the guys behind us joked, Yes! We made it. Nobody else seemed too bothered by the fact that we might have been chosen to sit there to showcase diversity. The possibility of a prepackaged audience didnt sit well with me. It might be nave of me to be surprised by the diversity roundup in a political event, but I still felt used. Despite loving the speech, I was left a bit perplexed by the situation. The use of minorities to polish political images in a college setting highlights a larger problem: the exploitation of groups, the issues are labeled as pertinent to them. One example is Mitt Romneys Meet the Candidate event on Wednesday. He spoke about the issues that affect Latino voters, which apparently include immigration, education and foreign policy. Last I heard, many of us were more concerned with the economy, but since I was born in South America, I guess that isnt as relevant. Yeah, right. How comical would it be if candidates also held rallies that focused on white voters? I would love to see the advertising. Maybe then my less diverse friends could get prime speech seating, too. All jokes aside, I really hope candidates stop using minority groups to gain popularity. By addressing the nation as one and not as separate racial or ethnic cliques, candidates could unify their constituency, and they could prevent future students from feeling like chess pawns.

A 61-bell carillon was later installed, which now chimes every 15 minutes and has a concert of the bells at 12:35 p.m. KELCEE GRIFFISAlligator Contributing WriterThe corner of University Avenue and Gale Lemerand Drive sizzled with Republican star power Saturday when U.S. Senate candidate Connie Mack and Josh Romney, presidential candidate Mitt Romneys son, tailgated with students and alumni. About 50 people milled around a green portable tent, eating barbecue ribs and Krispy Kreme doughnuts and posing for photos with Mack and Romney. Mack was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 2004 to represent Floridas 14th Congressional District, according to his page on the House website. He serves on the Foreign Affairs, and Oversight and Government Reform committees. Romneys appearance was a surprise but an added bonus after he rallied students for his fathers presidential campaign Friday on campus, said music and political science junior Collin Thompson, co-chair of the statewide coalition Students for Mack. I thought he was leaving after his speaking engagement yesterday, the 20-yearold said. Skylar Zander, 21, said he enjoyed spending time with Romney in the casual environment. Hes down-to-earth, Zander said. Thompson said the tailgate statewide campaign bus tour. I cant think of a better way to kick off a statewide bus tour than to start with your roots, Thompson said. Mack, who graduated from UF in 1993, said Gainesville doesnt seem to have changed much since he was a student. It feels the same, said Mack, who wore a white collared shirt adorned with the Gator logo. I think the football program has been more successful. After lunch, volunteers assembled yard signs for Mack and the Mitt Romney campaign, passed out stickers and sold Gators for Romney Tshirts. Thompson said Macks students because Mack aims to reduce government spending to lessen the amount of national debt the next generation will be responsible for. He said the current national debt divided per capita equals more than $50,000 dollars. You think youre going to graduate debt-free, but you graduate with $52,000 over head, Thompson said.Romney, Mack join students at tailgate CHRIS ALCANTARAAlligator WriterGainesville Police caught and arrested a man Friday morning after he walked around an apartment complex parking lot with his shorts unzipped and genitals exposed.

GREG LUCAAlligator Staff WriterFor quarterback Jeff Driskel, Saturdays inconsistent performance was another point on the learning curve. Driskel set career highs with 18 completions and 27 attempts, amassing 203 yards with a touchdown and an interception in Floridas 38-0 romp of Kentucky. Every game is really a building block, Driskel said. The more experience, the more reps you get, the more youre going to learn. I did some nice things things that Im going to have to clean up. Driskel was prone to overthrows and misreads on Saturday, but he also made several pinpoint passes. In the second quarter, Driskel found Quinton Dunbar on a post pattern for a 19-yard touchdown. He set up the score with a 25yard pass that hit tight end Jordan Reed in stride down the seam. Driskel created passing opportunities by extending plays with his legs. With UF up 24-0 and driving in the third quarter, Driskel looked left, rolled right and absorbed a hit as he threw back across the back Mack Brown. The 5-yard gain moved Florida to Kentuckys 7-yard line. Fantastic, coach Will Muschamp said of Driskels pass. He made some really nice throws. Driskel said his ability to scramble and get outside of the pocket came instinctually. Only once did the Gators call a pass designed to get Driskel on the move. His mobility was also a factor in the run game. He carried eight times for 35 yards, including a 1-yard touchdown on a sneak in the third quarter. After Floridas offense opened with a pair of three-and-outs, Driskel kept the ball on a readoption play and sprinted 38 yards down the right sideline. Muschamp said the big gain was the play that sparked Floridas offense following the slow start. He keeps so much alive, Muschamp said. Theres so many things he brings to the table for us because of his athletic ability. Between the impressive plays, Driskel made the type of mistakes that might be expected from a quarterback in only his fourth career start. In the second quarter, Driskel season on a deep pass intended for Latroy Pittman. I just tried to force something that wasnt there, Driskel said. I got too greedy and didnt take what the defense gave me. Driskel also admitted to locktimes scrambling from the pocket too early. On consecutive plays in the second quarter, Driskel threw too high for Reed down the seam and then forced a pass to a doublecovered Frankie Hammond Jr. in the end zone, not noticing that Reed was uncovered in the corner. We had some stuff open Muschamp said. Driskel cited a missed opportunity in the third quarter. 46, Reed ran uncontested down Driskels development continues in uneven performance JOSH JURNOVOY Alligator Staff Writer When the Florida offense took the did so without the Gator who has had the most success against the Wildcats: junior Trey Burton. Coach Will Muschamp said following UFs 38-0 win that Burton began suffering from back spasms on Friday morning, and the training staff could not resolve the issue in time for him to play. We did everything we could, Muschamp said. Every time he planted on his right foot, he had pain shooting up his right hip. Thats all it was. Burton, who was not on the sidelines during the game, scored six touchdowns against the Wildcats as a freshman and scored one more during Floridas 48-10 win in Lexington, Ky., last season. In Floridas win against Tennessee last week, Burton scored two touchdowns touches time Burton had been bothered by Burton misses Saturdays game with back spasms FIRE JOE MORGAN Florida defeated Kentucky for the 26th straight time on Saturday. The last time the Wildcats beat the Gators, UF coach Will Muschamp was 15 years old. When Florida plays Vanderbilt on Oct. 13, the Gators will likely extend their winning streak against the Commodores to 22 games. The Southeastern Conference has claimed the last six BCS Champions. But once you get past the eight top dogs, there is not much to offer. If the SEC truly wants to make its claim as the supreme football conference in the nation, it needs to make changes. Its time to kick some of these schools to the curb. Im not saying schools need to be removed from the conference entirely. But when it comes to football, some teams are overmatched. Eight schools Alabama, Arkansas, Auburn, Florida, Georgia, LSU, South Carolina and Tennessee have SEC-caliber football programs and have earned permanent status. Each boasts either an appropriate amount of current success or enough past triumphs to compensate for recent struggles. Kentucky, Mississippi State, Ole Miss and Vanderbilt are the odd schools out when it comes to football. Texas A&M and Missouri must abide by the replacement school rules listed below: 1. The school must be located in a state belonging to the former Confederate States of America. Sorry, West Virginia. 2. The school must have end of discussion. 3.

But with offensive genius Larry Fedora leading the program, it would be interesting. Vanderbilt Replacement Candidate: Louisville The Cardinals boast a respectable history, and they are trending up under coach Charlie Strong. Ole Miss Replacement Candidate: Clemson The Gamecocks would likely block the move, but the Tigers bring the atmosphere of an SEC program, and Dabo Swinney has Clemson positioned as a perennial Top-25 power. Mississippi State Replacement Candidate: Virginia Tech The Hokies would Bulldogs and add a program with rich tradition and a passionate fan base.

The touchdown matched the 24-point UK threatened to advance into UF territory on a second consecutive drive in the second quarter, but Florida safety DeAnte Saunders snuffed out hope for Kentucky by intercepting a Newton pass right before it hit the ground. Florida intercepted Kentucky backup quarterback three timessive line has allowed Florida to drop into coverage and force more turnovers. With three interceptions against Kentucky, Florida increased its turnover margin for the season to plus-5. The three or more turnovers only once in 2011. The coaches made sure the lack of takeaways didnt carry over to 2012. They placed an emphasis on it during the offseason. Eventually you get tired of it, and you want to do something about it, linebacker Mike Taylor said. We got tired of it. Kentuckys starting quarterback, Maxwell Smith, missed the game due to a shoulder injury. He entered as the SECs leading passer. Senior Morgan Newton started in his place and went 7 for 21 for 48 yards with three interceptions. He completed only 33 percent of his passes the lowest against the Gators all season. touchdown on a 1-yard run with 12 minutes left in the second quarter, pushing UFs lead to 10 points. Then Newton became a consistent source of offense for Florida. Three second quarter interceptions turned into seven Florida points. Junior Jaylen Watkins slid under a route, intercepted and interception of his UF career. We went over this before the game, Watkins said. I mation, and I knew it was coming. Florida faced Newton last season in Lexington and forced three turnovers. We just read his eyes, Taylor said. He went through his progressions and as he was going through his progression, we were reading him. quarter, but the Gators offense found a groove. Methodical drives led by quarterback Jeff Driskel kept UFs defense fresh on the sidelines. Florida converted 12 of 17 third-down opportunities and held a 15-minute advantage in time of possession. Driskel engineered a season best 15-play, 72-yard drive that lasted nine minutes in the third quarter. We were running the ball hard and we were converting on third down, Driskel said. That was a big thing coming into this week. We did a real nice job of protecting and getting open and making the plays. That was good for our offense and good for our team. Florida moved up three spots to No. 11 in the AP Poll following the victory. The Gators have displayed the toughness the coaches have been looking for in each of their three conference wins. With a new starting quarterback and another year adjusting to Muschamps style, there is a sense of optimism surrounding the Gators. said. Weve played three SEC teams already, and thats huge.
