Emily Aultman, a 19-year-old UF psychology junior, was driving a Ford Explorer after midnight with four other people to visit one of their friends in Orlando. At about mile marker 304 on the Florida Turnpike, a semitrailer in the right lane started to merge into the left lane where they were driving, said passenger McKenzie Lentz, a 23-year-old UF alumna. We swerved so that it wouldnt hit us, Lentz said. The three times, she said, before stopping on its roof in the right lane. Lentz and another passenger were able to escape before a different semitrailer hit the Explorer head on. I thought we had all gotten out, but when I looked back, we werent all out of the car, Lentz said. According to a report by the Florida Highway Patrol, the semitrailer struck the Explorer on the drivers side, and emergency responders pronounced Aultman dead at the scene. Lentz said everyone was transported to the hospital, and the survivors received treatment for their injuries. All but one passenger, whose ribs were fractured, have been discharged. As of press time, funeral arized for Aultman. Richard Johnson, assistant sports editor, contributed to this report.UF student killed in horrific highway accident She was driving on the Florida Turnpike We swerved so that it wouldnt hit us.

Because of Floridas ban on same-sex marriage, Aguirre and her partner, Lorna Bracewell, were forced to travel elsewhere to tie the knot. The couple packed into a car with Bracewells parents and a pastor and drove to Illinois, where their relationship received legal recognition. It kind of felt like we were kids sneaking off to do something wrong, Aguirre, a 29-year-old teacher at The One Room School House Project, said. When a judge in Florida overturned the states ban in Monroe County last Thursday, allowing legal marriages to begin today, Aguirre was overcome with joy. Florida is one of 31 states that currently bans same-sex marriage. A wedding is about being socially recognized as a couple and having people you love support your relationship, Aguirre said. Our situation isnt unique. The court is aware that the majority of voters oppose same-sex marriage, but it is our countrys proud history to protect the rights of the individual, the rights of the unpopular and rights of the powerless, even at the cost of offending the majority, Monroe County Circuit Judge Luis Garcia wrote in his opinion. Not everyone was happy about the ruling. peal almost immediately after, putting Garcias ruling on hold. The fundamental argument of our brief is that the voters had the right (in 2008) to adopt and a woman), just as they have the right in the future to change their minds and afford legal recognition to same-sex marriage, should they so choose, Bondi said in a statement reAs attorney general, its her job to defend the Florida Constitution, said Kailyn Allen, chair woman of the UF College Republicans Floridas same-sex marriage rollercoaster leaves locals hopeful

TUESDAY, JULY 22, 2014 ALLIGATOR, 7 Because the political right is full of an interesting bunch of characters, many in the media struggle to properly identify and categorize its different ideological camps. The right is said to be made up of mainstream, business-friendly, Tea Party, libertarian, neoconservative, religious-minded or simply extremist groups. Every now and again, a brave writer attempts to organize this disarray. Recently, Buzzfeeds Ben Smith gave it a try. Smiths proposal: Divide the conservative movement in two. Call one side the Liberty Conservatives and the other, Freedom Conservatives. The former draws on a straight line that runs from the Declaration to modern libertarianism and the latter goes from emancipation to George W. Bush, with a rather inconvenient detour through Roosevelt. The Freedom Conservatives are more likely to support the legalization of marijuana, while the Liberty Conservatives are more likely to support the intervention in Iraq. Even thought it seems like this is a practical proposal, the categorization takes a turn for the worse. Smith begins to delve into the roots dom. One has a Germanic root, and the other has a Latin one, obviously, and he discusses dy, but these two words have been used interchangeably so often that they lose their unique meanings that lend to Smiths proposal. If these monikers stuck, havoc on the right would ensue. I can see men with furled Dont which Founding Father would fall into which category. Did Jefferson champion freedom over liberty, or the other way around? It makes you wonder. Then comes the inevitable question: Which would Reagan be? He touted individual liberty, and he did like freedom. Members on the right will take sides of this all-too-important quandary and a civil war will rage. In a more practical case, consider what category former Sen. Rick Santorum would fall into. He is predominantly known as a religious conservative, which would easily make him a Liberty Conservative. But then again, he holds dear the free market in a way that would qualify him as a Freedom Conservative. While you jostle with the Freedom versus Liberty distinction, you completely lose sight of what makes Santorum, Santorum. Smiths two camps are too broad and contrast too little. These terms improperly classify conservatives, and you would have to be crazy to believe that a person would identify himself or herself in Smiths terms. Years before Smith, Irving Kristol, the intellectual leader and godfather of the neoconservative movement, tried in vain to categorize the right. In one of his essays, Kristol separates the right into three rows: the traditional, religious and neoconservatives. Traditional conservatives are more libertarian-leaning and anti-statist. They are more prone to being cozy with the business community because the opposite of the public sector is the private sector. Religious conservatives are just as the name implies: They rely on a predominantly JudeoChristian disposition. Vices, like marijuana legalization, the deterioration of traditional marriage and gambling are frowned upon. The state, in their view, must pass ethical and moral laws that must align with religious tradition and tenant. Neoconservatives are disenfranchised New Dealers. These conservatives were content with bigger government but ultimately defected from the left because of Lyndon Johnsons unrealistic Great Society initiative. They have a grandiose As with Smiths proposal, Kristols categories lack proper individuality. George W. Bush was a foreign policy hawk, which had much to do with his strong religious convictions. Nice try, and thanks for playing. Even though this is a nice little pastime the media like to play, no writer can properly separate the right so neatly. There is no point in doing this. By reducing the right wing into redundant and ineffectual camps, you lose sight of its diverse political thought. These inaccurate views of the right actually gives the right its strength. It leads to a robust internal policy debate and a healthier political movement. Perhaps we should focus more on that instead of camp drawing. Michael Beato is a UF economics junior. His columns appear on Tuesdays. Is it possible to categorize the right? Column Michael But Jesus said, Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven. Matthew 19:14. As little children come across our southern border seeking safety from the violence and depravations of their home countries, I am shocked and deeply dismayed at the response of some in the media. American talk show host Laura Ingraham said we should deport them by the thousands. Fox News Channel TV show host Judge Jeanine Pirro said our safety is at risk, and we are in danger. Steve Doocy, a Fox news personality, said they could be members of gangs. These same punAmerica is a Christian country. And I never thought I would see the day when a U.S. congressman House of Representatives and suggest that we treat small children as an invading force and authorize military force against them, as Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert did. These are children alone, hungry and afraid that they are talking about. What kind of people turn their backs on a lost child? How did these children get here, and why are they here? I dont know the answer, but common sense tells me they most likely did not walk the thousand miles from El Salvador and Guatemala through Mexico in a vast exodus to America. They are probably the orphans and street children who have been displaced here by their home countries to avoid the responsibility of caring for them. We should look at this as a blessing. Yes, a blessing. The opportunity to save 50,000 children from a life of poverty, starvation and untold deprivation has been placed, literally, at our door. thing we should do is take them in, feed them and clothe them. We should give them medical care, comfort them and teach them. The last thing we should do is shout at them, frighten them and turn them away. We should act like compassionate Americans, not bullies. I am utterly shocked at the inhuman displays on television of people shouting and screaming epithets at small children. We should hold in contempt those in the media and government who seek to demagogue a humanitarian crisis for their own political purposes. The next thing we should do is make our best efforts to identify the children, determine whether they have parents or families that can care for them, and, if they do, return them to their families. Given the circumstances, I doubt there are many of them who have families that can care for them. For those who have no families to care of them, we should build a community for them, educate them, care for them and make them available for adoption. What we should never do is turn our backs to helpless children or send them back to developing countries to face lives of poverty and deprivation. What would Jesus do?

14, ALLIGATOR TUESDAY, JULY 22, 2014 New Student EditionPublishes: August 18th 5% Final Deadline: July 31 Welcome Back EditionPublishes: August 25th Final Deadline: August 13th 10% Pick up discount from NSE COLLEGE FOOTBALL ASSOCIATED PRESSDALLAS Big 12 Commissioner Bob Bowlsby had a dire warning Monday for anyone who likes intercollegiate athletics the way they are now. Youre going to hate it going forward, Bowlsby said. Theres a lot of change coming. During his opening address at the Big 12 football media athletic programs face going forward and the strange environment that exists with class-action lawsuits against the NCAA and its member schools. Bowlsby said he doesnt think there is a real understanding of how much lawsuits which he numbered as seven and growing all the time could radically alter things. I think all of that in the end will cause programs to be eliminated. I think youll see mens Olympic sports go away as a result of the new funding challenges that are coming down the pike, he said. I think there may be tension among and between sports on campus and institutions that have different resources. While acknowledging the outcomes are unknown, the former Stanford athletic director expressed concern about fewer opportunities for some athletes to go to college in the future. I fear that we will get past the change and then well realize that all the gymnastics programs went away, or that we have agents on campus all the time negotiating playing time for student athletes, he said. Theres all kind of Armageddon scenarios you could come up with . You with some scenarios that would be pretty scary. A year ago, Bowlsbys opening address was part of a coordinated effort by the leaders of the power conferences the Big 12, SEC, Big Ten, Pac-12 and ACC in calling for transformative changes in the governance system of the NCAA. The NCAA board of directors is set to vote Aug. 7 on would give athletic directors and athletes bigger roles in the legislative process, and give the power conferences autonomy to make their own bylaws. That vote will come a day after the Big 12 sponsors in forums on the state of college athletics. When addressing potential unionization of football and basketball players, Bowlsby said student-athletes are not employees. They should never be employees. Its not an employee/employer relationship. Bowlsby also addressed the NCAA enforcement program, which he said is broken considering there were no hearings before the infractions committee in almost a year even though he doesnt believe cheating is rampant. I think its not an understatement to say cheating pays presently, he said If you seek to conspire to certainly bend the rules, you can do it successfully and probably not get caught in most occasions .

MORGAN MORIARTYAlligator Staff Writer@Morgan_MoriartyAlligatorSports continues its position breakdown by looking at Floridas offensive line. The UF offensive line was marred with injuries in 2013, resulting in shifts along the line throughout the season and forced some players to play positions that werent naturally theirs. However, with some veterans fully healthy, some talented junior college transfers and a new offensive line coach, the unit should be much improved for 2014. New offensive line coach Mike Summers, who was hired from Southern California, takes over a group of players that Summers toughest project may be molding redshirt senior Max Garcia into a reliable center. With the departure of fouryear starter Jonotthan Harrison, Garcia takes over at the position. The Norcross, Ga., native played left guard and left tackle in all 12 games for Florida last season. Garcia has never played center in his career, and he had some shaky snaps throughout the spring. Garcia who was recently named to the Rimington Trophy watch list for the best center in college football should get the kinks out by the time fall camp rolls around in the next three weeks. Two linemen who come back this fall following season-ending injuries are Tyler Moore and Chaz Green. Green, who was positioned at right tackle, tore the labrum in his shoulder before the 2013 season began, which forced Moore to move from left guard to right tackle in Greens place. With Green back fully healthy at right tackle, Moore can move back to his natural position at left guard. Moore suffered a season-ending injury following a scooter accident late last season. Junior D.J. Humphries will start at left tackle. He started in six of the seven games he played in as a sophomore before his knee injury in 2013. Now healthy, Humphries can play to his full potential this fall. Expectations remain high as Humphries was recently added to the 2014 Outland Trophy watch list, which is an honor awarded to the nations best interior lineman. He came in as the No. 1 tackle in the 2012 recruiting class, per Starting at right guard will be senior Trenton Brown, who played in all 12 games last season and started in Moores spot at came to Gainesville last season as a JUCO transfer. Given the experience that this unit has, the offensive line is capable of being very successful under Summers. Staying healthy will be critical to protect quarterback Jeff Driskel and execute the run game led by Floridas deep running back corps. 16, ALLIGATOR TUESDAY, JULY 22, 2014 Alligator File Photo POSITION PREVIEWA Mid-Summers Nights Dream: Floridas O-line resurgence MORGAN MORIARTYAlligator Staff Writer@Morgan_MoriartyFloridas 2015 recruiting class lost a member of its verbal commitments over the weekend.
