TEXT L8R, G8RS KELCEE GRIFFISAlligator Staff WriterTexting while driving is now a ticketable offense across the state. The Florida Ban on Texting While Driving Law, which went into effect today, designates texting while driving as a secondary offense, which means police can ticket drivers for texting only if they were pulled over for something else. According to the bill, A person may not operate a motor vehicle while manually typing or entering multiple letters, numbers ... into a wireless communications device or while sending or reading data in such a device. The bill does make exemptions for drivers using their cellphones to navigate, get safety information or report emergencies to authorities. Gainesville Police spokesman cers will focus on educating drivers about how the new law applies, but they also wont be shy about ticketing. Theres not going to be a grace period, he said. People know its been coming. Because texting is a secondary ofother reasons to pull texters over. Its taking your attention away from such a complicated task, he said. Finding a primary offense is going to be easy.Texting and driving law in effect HE WAS 43. ALEX HARRISAlligator Staff WriterStudents were concerned when their beloved, normally punctual professor didnt show up for their history class. Alan Cecil Petigny, a UF alumnus, author and tenured associate professor, passed away unexpectedly in his home last week from natural causes. He was 43. Ida Altman, chair of the UF history department, said she attempted to get in touch with Petigny on Thursday, after students said he hadnt been to class for several days. It wasnt until early evening that I was able to talk to his mother, and she told me that she hadnt heard from him, said Altman. At that point I became alarmed and called the police. Petigny was raised in Tampa, where he attended the University of South Florida and graduated with honors in 1992. He won awards for his contributions to a Tampa public radio station and served as a policy analyst for the U.S. Congress Joint Economic Committee. His book, The Permissive Society: America, 1941-1965, was published by Cambridge University Press in 2009. His mother, Pearl Petigny, 83, said he attended UF as a UF teacher remembered for history lessons, love of reading THE LAST GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN WAS IN 1995. NIKO PIFFERETTIAlligator Staff WriterThe federal government shut down at midnight because of a standstill in budget negotiations between the U.S. Senate and the U.S. House of Representatives. For UF, the shutdown will impact the institutions research projects, which rely federal grants and agencies. According to a memo from David Norton, UF research vice president, research using money already disbursed to the university can continue without interruption, unless a stop work order has been issued. Federal student aid such as Pell grants will not be affected, said U.S. Rep. Ted Yoho in a statement. The shutdown is expected to have minimal impact on the city of Gainesville, but that may change as more information becomes available spokesman Bob Woods. Gainesvilles Regional Transit System bus lines, one of two city services Woods said receives federal funding, is not at risk. We dont foresee it impacting our service whatsoever, said Chip Skinner, an RTS spokesman. President Barack Obama released a statement Monday evening that painted a more disruptive picture of the shutdown. close. Paychecks would be delayed. Vital services that seniors and veterans, women and children, businesses and our economy depend on would be hamstrung, Obama wrote. Social Security, Medicare, the U.S. Postal Service, the Armed Forces and NASA Mission Control will remain in operation, according to the statement. The Affordable Care Acts open enrollment period will commence today as planned.

TUESDAY, OCTOBER 1, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 3 Kan Li / Alligator StaffPh.D. student and Department of Environmental and Global Health research coordinator John Anderson, 34, lights a candle dedicated to Kenya mall-shooting victims on Turlington Plaza Monday. LOCAL BRIANA ERICKSONAlligator Contributing WriterA newly opened barbecue restaurant decided to grace one of its outside walls with a mural. But there is one thing keeping building from complying with city regulations. In an email to city commissioners, City Manager Russ Blackburn explained that Billy-Bobz Bar-B-Qs mural, located at 1228 W. University Ave., includes the restaurants name in the artwork. Because Billy-Bobz Bar-B-Q is painted next to the pig advertising the business without a permit to do so, this converts the artwork from a mural to a sign in accordance with the citys sign code. This ordinance prohibits erecting a sign without obtaining the required permits, said city spokesman Bob Woods. The restaurant was given a written notice by the city Sept. 13 mandating it comply by taking down the sign or applying for a permit. City code enforcer Chris Cooper gave the business 60 days to comply with city ordinances to work out a solution. could be imposed. Blackburn wrote in an email that the Modern Age Tobacco and Gift Shops mural located at 1122 W. University Ave. is a similar case. He said the mural was at one time in compliance with city codes but has since freshened up by adding its name an instance Blackburn said city staff will also follow up on. If the owner applies for the permit, city staff will work to requirements of city ordinances, Woods said. Derek Dever, co-owner of Billy-Bobz, said throughout the negotiations, customers at Billy-Bobz Bar-B-Q have given the restaurant nothing but support. We are just a new business trying to get our name out there, he said.Mural at barbecue restaurant sparks saucy negotiations THE SERVICES WILL BEGIN OCT. 11. HANNA MARCUSAlligator Staff Writerhmarcus@alligator.orgThe cheap seats for statewide bus travel just got cheaper. Red Coach Bus lines recently introduced a new stop at the UF commuter lot, free WiFi and a $75 round-trip ticket option from Gainesville to Miami. Additionally, Red Coach added businessclass buses that leave at earlier times during the week and offer trips between Orlando and Miami for $30 each way. These services will begin Oct. 11. Red Coach, said the company has received positive feedback from students. dents using the economy class, she said. Every week, we have noticed an increase in the number of students taking advantage of this new service. Hannah Schulte, a 20-year-old UF linguistics junior who has taken Red Coach buses, said the additional lines sound more convenient. I think the new service geared towards students will be much more effective especially the prices, she said. The Red Coach was really expensive when I took it I would probably take it again now that its cheaper and more convenient. Tiffanny Samuels, a UF health education and behavior senior, said the drop in price from Gainesville to Miami is most likely a tactic to compete with other bus systems with cheaper prices. that might bring in a lot more revenue, she said. Theyre probably trying to compete with other buses that are cheaper, but not as comfortable.Red Coach adds commuter lot stop, economy and business lines EIGHT STUDENT ORGANIZATIONS PARTICIPATED. ALEXANDRA HERSHORNAlligator Contributing WriterUF students gathered Thursday evening on Turlington Plaza for a candlelight vigil commemorating the lives of those affected by the tragedy at the Westgate Mall in Nairobi, Kenya. On Sept. 21, al-Shabab claimed responsibility for the armed shooting that wounded more than 200 civilians and led to dozens of deaths. Deepa Pindolia, a Kenyan-born 27-year-old UF doctoral student, organized the event. She brought together eight student organizations for the vigil, including Gators for ASHA, Student Government, the Pakistan Student Association and UF International Student Services. It felt like a long, horrible nightmare, she said. It could have been anyone at the wrong place at the wrong time. Dean of the UF International Center David Sammons said as soon as the attacks were reported, Student Support Services reached out to all of the Kenyan students at UF. students were directly impacted by home countries, he said. The vigil also included a Messages of Hope display where students were encouraged to share their condolences with the civilians impacted by the terrorist attacks at the Westgate Mall. The board will be shipped to Kenya and displayed outside of the mall.

TUESDAY, OCTOBER 1, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 5 RICK SCOTT CAME TO GAINESVILLE TO PRESENT THE AWARD. MEGAN REEVESAlligator Contributing WriterRobert Cade, the lead inventor of Gatorade, was recently chosen as a recipient of the states Great Floridian award. Gov. Rick Scott visited the Cade Museum for Creativity and Invention last week to present the award to the late Cades family. Cades inventions, UF President Bernie Machen said at the ceremony. At UF, he continues to inspire students and faculty to follow their curiosity and persist in their ambitions. The Cade Museum will open its doors in Depot Park in November 2015, which will mark the used at Lousiana State University. Cades daughter and the founder and CEO of the Cade Museum, Phoebe Cade Miles, accepted the award for her father. Here at the Cade Museum, its not just about the past, she said. We want to use the Gatorade story to inspire a new generation of creative thinkers, future inventors and early entrepreneurs. Miles said her dad wasnt a great student and came from a humble background. He surely would be honored to be named a Great Floridian, Machen said. But the greatest honor we could bestow is to follow his example of research, teamwork and community service to create a better future through innovation.Late Gatorade inventor honored with Great Floridian award CAMPUS NICOLE EARLYAlligator Contributing Writer ity Programs is expecting a name change in the near future. The word minority will be removed from the name and replaced with diversity. The name change has been talked about for a number of years, said David W. Mazyck, interim associate dean for graduate minority programs. Im not Im thinking how this name will work 50 years down the line when there is no minority because the minority is the majority. Mazyck said the new vision this month. But some students are wary about the new name and the changes it could bring. Janine Parker, a second-year doctoral candidate in international extension, agriculture, said she doesnt understand why the name change is necessary. She said she fears the new name will cause discrepancies among students. It will affect the new graduate minority students who dont said. They might not readily identify as diverse since the term leaves room for ambiguity. Mazyck said nothing is changing in structure, they are just the services offered. Chris Weaver, a second-year doctoral candidate in public policy and statistics, said as long as same programs, he supports the name change.Minority office to change name Your guide to elections After weeks of campaigning, voting for the Fall 2013 Student Government elections begins today.

This semester, however, the editorial board has decided to endorse platform points from each party. These promises are what their campaigns are based on especially in an election without executive candidates so the Alligator wanted to take a closer look at some of the proposed projects. Both the Swamp Party and Students Party basically agreed in four areas: expanding free printing with more locations and more stations, promoting sustainability efforts, increasing awnings and shelters at bus stops and providing more resources to UF students who own bicycles. The Alligator thinks all of these areas could use improvement, and we commend both parties on identifying these student needs. We were especially impressed by the Swamp Partys initiative to add self-service bike stations at residence halls. Those would get some serious use from students who live both onand off-campus. The Alligators editorial board also supports the Students Partys proposed implementation of a waiting-list system for ISIS class registration. We think this would result in a smoother process for all students. Everyone knows stalking ISIS is no fun. The Swamp Party suggested adding screens at the Hub displaying RTS bus-route tracking. Because the Hub is such a large number of UF students especially those without smartphones. The Students Party also proposed bringing The New York Times and USA Today readership programs back to campus. For obvious reasons, the editorial board wholeheartedly supports this. Many students, faculty and staff took advantage of this service, and were disappointed by SGs mishandling of billings for those programs. Finally, we support the Students Partys proposed zero-based budgeting plan. Under zero-based budgeting, funding for all student and academic organizations would begin at zero each year, and committees would evaluate the size and scope of each organization before determining how much funding would be allocated to each organization. But the editorial board didnt agree with either partys proposed measures related to BlueLights presence on campus. The Students Party said it wanted to invest in repairs of certain BlueLight poles on campus, and the Swamp Party is promoting its UF-tailored BlueLight App which is still in development. Before moving forward, the Alligator asks that SG investihow many of them are used and how many crimes theyve effectively stopped. As for the BlueLight App, theres already one available on both the App Store and Google Play.

Todays question: Do you text and drive? Being abroad can open students eyes During my junior summer in Gainesville, I started feeling a thirst for something other than college life. It could have been the unforgiving landlocked climate, but as I hit the melting asphalt in August 2011 with all my belongings packed into my car, I knew I had to quench that thirst eventually. The illogical but gorgeous postcard of a city that is I spent six months in Brazils samba and crime capital wearing several hats including the traditional straw fedora I lost to the Atlantic Ocean among millions of other offerings to the sea gods to bring in the new year. As a foreigner in this chaotic metropolis, I was fair game for any malandragem, loosely translated to mischief. Really, this was what Rio embodied: a sense that being anything less than a rascal meant being a sitting duck for the other rogues out there. When my grant from the federal university was delayed because of a two-month national strike, I started working as an English teacher at an engineering I peddled my language skills, the only thing my 19year-old self could truly offer in a free market. I had to get by in a country I didnt understand. I was glad for the messiness of the real world, but even chaos has some order. I remember walking into an abandoned factory in Northern Rio de Janeiro, where the slum community had created a semi-functional city within its dilapidated walls. Sheets and tin panels divided space, and sharing a pot of rice and beans was their way of networking. I left Rio and returned to Gainesville. Naturally, that summer, I headed south again: this time, to my hometown. Miami echoed Rio in some ways beautiful and terrifying. I learned about the city by writing headlines and briefs about sunny Miamis shadowy characters and darkest corners. Miami bid me a bientot last August. I knew I was stretching out my time away from school, but I decided to go to Paris to continue working in the journalism industry as an intern. My group of friends were from all corners of the globe, but we saw no cultural barriers as soon as we shared a cheap bottle of merlot and a baguette on a surprisingly cold night in August. With some time back in the states now, Ive started to try to put my experiences together like puzzle pieces I picked up along the way. Im unsure if they will even create a recognizable image in the end, but these memories, lessons and experiences Ive collected outside of school have made me a better student. I value what Im learning here even more now and Im happy to be back, if even for a short semester. The wanderlust has been satiated at least until the next adventure. Bottom line: If youre thinking about going hiking for a few months in the Appalachians, or working as an English teacher in South Korea, or just going back home to spend some time helping with the family business, dont think its a setback it might just take you to exactly where you want to be.

TUESDAY, OCTOBER 1, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 13Rachel Crosby / Alligator StaffTyler Murphy attempts a pass during Floridas 24-7 victory against Kentucky on Saturday at Commonwealth Stadium in Lexington, Ky. JOE MORGANAlligator Staff Writer@joe_morgan start for the Gators, Tyler Murphy was talking about First Take. The telecommunication major said Monday that he would like to host a sports talk show similar to ESPNs debate-centered program once his football career is over. Until that day comes, Murphy will have to settle for giving Skip Bayless and Stephen A. Smith talking points like his 13 consecutive completions to start Saturdays game. Thats something I dont really try to pay attention to, Murphy said. I just focus on getting game. Coach Will Muschamp was pleased with what he saw from his new starting quarterback on the road. Murphys demeanor in tough situations especially impressed Muschamp. Thats one of his strengths: demeanor and how he handles things Muschamp said. After the interception, you would expect a guy to be down about things. He understood what happened on the play. Although Murphy proved calm and collected throughout Floridas 24-7 victory against Kentucky, he had an occasional struggle while adjusting to his new role few days, Murphy caught himself trying to do too much. Going out there and just getting the experience of being a starter really helped, Murphy said. Im starting to get used to the speed of the game. Hopefully, things will continue to slow down for me and I can continue to keep making progress and getting better. Gators getting stops: Nothing makes Jaylen Watkins prouder than stopping opponents on third down. Its our job to keep them from been doing that pretty well, Watkins said. Florida boasts the second-best defense in the nation, allowing only 202.5 yards per game. But when it comes to stopping the opposition on third down, no team tops the Gators. Kentucky moved the chains just once on eight third downs against Florida. The Gators have now limited opponents to an FBSbest 17.8 percent third-down conversion rate. Thats go-time, Buck linebacker Dante Fowler Jr. said. So everybody, the defensive line, pins their ears back and the secondary gets ready so we can putting up points for us. Muschamp said the key to UFs third-down success is a good fourman pass rush, playing man-toman on third and short and good zone principles on third and long. He praised his staffs ability to mix those concepts well enough to keep the opposing offense off balance. Through four games, the results have been good for the Gators. Theres a little subtle change for us, but third down can be very drastic depending on the team were facing and what we carry into a game, Muschamp said. Were trying to make the offense adjust in those situations each game based on what they do. Jones breaks free: One glaring disparity in the box score following Floridas 24-7 win against Kentucky was how running back Matt Jones stacked up against the Wildcats. Jones tallied a career-high 176 yards on the ground, while Kentuckys offense managed only 173 yards of total offense. Thats good for Matt, Fowler said. He hadnt played a great game. And we dont want them to get a lot of yards.Murphy still adjusting to new roleCourtesy of The Daily TargumFormer Rutgers guard Eli Carter attempts a layup during a 68-65 victory against George Washington University on Dec. 11, 2012. MENS BASKETBALL LANDON WATNICKAlligator Staff Writer@LandonWatnick Florida this season. The NCAA granted Carters waiver to play immediately, UF announced Monday morning. In the wake of the Mike Rice player-abuse scandal, the NCAA was expected to rule in Carters favor. Rutgers transfers Vincent Garrett (WisconsinGreen Bay), Mike Poole (Iona) and Derrick Randall (Pittsburgh) have also been granted eligibility for the 2013-14 season. A 6-foot-2, 200-pound combo guard, Carter specializes as a scorer and a slasher. Last year at Rutgers, Carter was averaging a teamhigh 14.9 points per game on 38.4 percent shooting, but his season ended when he suffered a fractured He had successful surgery on his right leg Feb. 28 but is still waiting to be medically cleared by Florida. In his two seasons with the Scarlet Knights, Carter started 46 of 56 games. Im really excited about him. Hes just a great kid, center Patric Young said in May. He will come in and be able to get to the basket a lot better than our guards have been able to in the past and just change the whole dynamic of our team. Despite losing guards Kenny Boynton and Mike Rosario who were two of Floridas top three scorers last season to graduation, the Gators will have a deep backcourt in 2013-14 with the addition of Carter.

Silver becoming playmakerThe ball barely missed the out of bounds. Silvers play was far from surprising for the Gators. Burleigh said her teams outside backs have the ability to consistently be offensive threats. We are pretty aggressive with our outside backs, Burleigh said. We send them forward quite often. Last year we didnt feel like we got a whole lot of production out of that, which was frustrating because its a big risk to send them. This year weve done much better picking and choosing our times and getting production from them. Silver may not have scored a goal this season, but she has stepped up as a playmaker for multiple Florida goals. Silver earned two assists off two corner kick opportunities for goals against Florida International on Sept. 1. She capitalized on that momentum against Oklahoma on Sept. 6, making a pass to Begic, who scored despite playing fewer than nine minutes in the game. Silver now has four assists, which is just one fewer than juthe most this season. Falknor has two assists this season, and junior outside back ing junior forward Jillian Graff to Floridas fourth goal against Ole Miss on Friday. Burleigh said as consistent as the outside backs have been, there is still more for them to work on. Sometimes its about decisions like [Sunday], (where) we had several chances where our outsides backs got in to serve balls in, Burleigh said. The good news is theyre effective in getting forward and that: getting the execution and SOCCER, from page 12 We just played mad, said Buck linebacker Dante Fowler Jr., who contributed played for him. tear in his left knee against Florida State on Nov. 26, 2011, but was able to return for the start of the following season. reer, Muschamp expects NFL organizations to remain interested in the 6-foot-2, 285-pound defensive tackle. Prior to the injury, a recent Sports Illustrated mock draft ranked him as the No. 15 available prospect. Hell have plenty of interest, Muschamp said. Hell be a productive guy on the next level.

Neither may make a leaping interception like Vernon Hargreaves III made and they do it well. amis Stephen Morris to Phillip Dorsett sparked the change at safety. Dorsett beat Maye on the play. Muschamp made the switch the following Monday, saying, You just cant give up big plays. We cant afford that to happen. Youve got to tackle better. to safety. Watkins, now making defensive calls, enjoyed that aspect of the move. Hes in greater command of Floridas secondary. Jaylens a smart football player. He knows the defense very well, Taylor said able to execute for us very well back there. Hell provide us with some big plays. Im not saying that anyone else wasnt able to, but hell provide us with some big plays that we need. While Watkins envisions a potential NFL career at cornerback, hes spent an entire offseason preparing for the switch. years focused on consistency, and now recently how versatile the senior has become. Besides cornerback and safety, theres a new title to add to his name leader. Hes been a very vocal guy in a very positive way, coach Will Muschamp said. Hes one of the leaders on our football team.

RJ SCHAFFERAlligator Writer@rjschaffer Florida used its powerful offense to make it to the Sweet 16 last season. UF ranked 20th in the nation in kills per set at 14.33 and No. 4 in the country with a .298 in hitting percentage. Despite the lofty numbers, No. 3 Florida has found a way to improve in both categories this season. Thanks to help from newcomers and improved returners, the Gators rank No. 6 in the nation in kills per set at 14.89 and second in the nation in hitting percentage at .338. something that is a strength this year, assistant coach Dave Boos said. We have a lot of players that come in and contribute something we didnt have last year. thin last year with the injury situation. So, its a nice luxury to have. A common theme this season has been the performance of different role players such as freshman right-side hitter Alex Holston and sophomore middle blocker Simone Antwi. Each has had breakout performances this season, and last weekend against Mississippi State and Ole Miss was no different. Gabby Mallette had an increased ond in attempts in both games. She attempted 29 kills against Mississippi State and 13 against Ole Miss. Boos said. Championships are won and lost on the left side. If you look at Final Four and national championship teams, you need great left-side play. She has a physicality thats very unique in our sport; very strong physically, a very high jumper and has tons of power in her swing. Last season, Florida relied heavily on four of its top players senior middle blocker Chloe Mann, sophomore Ziva Recek and former Gators Tangerine Wiggs and Betsy Smith for most of its attempts. Recek led UF with 1,166 attempted kills. Mann attempted 699, Wiggs had attempted 503, and Smith had 451 attempts. Mallette was the next highest at 345. No other player had more than 193. Players such as Mallette impact Floridas success, in situations like the back-to-back sweeps to start off the Southeastern Conference schedule. Anytime you start your SEC season 2-0 on the road with two sweeps, youve got to be pleased, Boos said. We were (pleased)with what we saw. CHUCK KINGSBURYAlligator Staff Writer@chuckkingsburyWith Week 4 of the NFL season in the books, here are a few former Gators who made the most tangible impact for their respective teams. Josh Evans, safety: With veteran safety Dwight Lowery recovering from a concussion he suffered in Week 3 against the Seattle Seasafety for the Jacksonville Jaguars for the second consecutive Sunday and he looked the part. An impressive showing from recently acquired free agent Will Blackmon one interception and a sack that produced a fumble helped shore up the leagues third worst passing defense. But Evans showing was equally promising. The former Gator combined for while playing at both strong and free safety during the game. At times, Evans played singlehigh safety in the Jaguars Cover-1 alignment but also made plays close to the line of scrimmage a hallmark of his style of play at Florida. Although he must continue to improve, Evans, a big, versatile safety, showed the growth and bigplay ability needed to perform well at the position. Jeff Demps, running back: When Demps announced he would at the start of the 2013 season, the New England Patriots traded the Olympic runner to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Tampa added Demps to the 53man roster on Sept. 23, taking the place of tight end Luke Stocker, who was placed on injured reserve. On Sunday, Demps showed off the versatility Bill Belichick was hopsigned him. Demps excelled returning kicks with his track-runner speed, averaging 23 yards per return, including a long of 29 yards. The former Gator carried the ball for 14 yards on one rush and hauled in one catch for 8 yards. With a dismal Bucs offense that benched its struggling quarterback in favor of unproven third-round draft pick Mike Glennon, Demps may see more touches moving forward. Deonte Thompson, wide receiver: The Baltimore Ravens have spent much of the off-season, preseason and early weeks of the regular season searching for playmakers to replace the production of tight end Dennis Pitta and former wide receiver Anquan Boldin. On Sunday, quarterback Joe Flacco may have found one. Former Gator Deonte Thompson made his 2013 season debut after recovering from a foot injury in the preseason and made the most tangible impact of all Gators in Week 4. Thompson ended the game with four catches for 50 yards, including a 33-yard strike down the sideline in the fourth quarter. On the play, Thompson was hit helmet-to-helmet and suffered a concussion that is not expected to cause him to miss a game. The former Gator struggled to exceed expectations in Gainesville but showcased his adequate size and speed Sunday. With receiver Marlon Brown sidelined with a thigh injury and his status for Week 4 currently uncertain, Thompson could see tice before Sundays game, if he is healthy. Notes: Former Gator safety Major Wright recorded his second interception of the season for the Chicago Bears against the Detroit interceptions with six this season. Redskins tight end Jordan Reed was sidelined for Sundays game versus Oakland with a thigh contusion.
