Chip Skinner, the RTS Marketing and Communications supervisor, said he sees a number of factors behind the increase. In the last few years, weve been seeing, on average, about a 3 percent growth, he said. A lot of different studies have shown that it costs between $8,000 and $10,000 to have a vehicle for one year. With the bus system, youre only paying approximately $420 a year. The RTS employee-bus-pass program is another boost. Employers buy employee bus passes that provide workers with unlimited access to the bus system. An additional cause is Santa Fe Colleges new transportation fee. SFC students are now able to receive free transport on a bus after showing a student ID. They have that prepaid unlimited access now because its associated with each credit hour, just like UFs transportation fee, Skinner said. That increased our ridership out to that particular area. As ridership grows, full buses become an issue for students, especially in the early morning blocks. If [students] are encountering full buses now, they may want to explore other options later in the day, Skinner said. We are in the people-moving business, and we dont want to leave anyone on the road, if possible. Skinner doesnt see the growth stopping anytime soon. RTS is anticipating 10.3 million riders next year.

Rick Scott may not think your degree is worth funding. In an interview with the Sarasota HeraldTribune on Monday, Gov. Rick Scott laid out his plans for higher-education reform one of his top priorities for the state legislature when it convenes in January. In addition to rethinking faculty security, Scott said he hopes to move more funding to programs that promise the best job opportunities after graduation, namely the science, technology, engineering and math departments, or STEM disciplines. This would ideally draw more high-tech companies to the state, thereby increasing job opportunities. The governor cited liberal arts degrees like anthropology and psychology as examples of those with poor job prospects, saying he hopes to come up with more ways to incentivize students to pursue the STEM disciplines while discouraging them from liberal arts tracks. If Im going to take money from a citizen to put into education, then Im going to take that money to create jobs, Scott told the Herald-Tribune. So I want that money to go to degrees where people can get jobs in this state. Is it a vital interest of the state to have more anthropologists? I dont think so. UF President Bernie Machen said he agrees that the state should emphasize and support STEM disciplines, noting UF is a very scienceintensive university. However, Machen said he would not support funding STEM degrees at the expense of liberal arts programs. Scott also told the Herald-Tribune that he wants universities to provide their students with information about the average salary for each degree program.

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 13, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 3 Olivia Muenter / Alligator CNN national security analyst Peter Bergen discusses his opinion and knowledge Wednesday night of national security, terrorism and the hunt and eventual capture of Osama bin Laden. CLARE LENNONAlligator WriterFour of the UF Supreme Court justices outlined measures for future elections cycles at a meeting Wednesday night. The justices asserted the courts authority in elections with an outline that limits the author ity of the Student Senate, details the responsibilities of the court and touches on the fall elections procedures, which prompted the meeting. None of these limits are published. The court has no set publication date. The court lifted an injunction Monday that had postponed the Senates vote to validate the elections. The decision came after an investigation into elections procedures that the court ordered the Election Commission to carry out. Chief Justice Matt Michel and Associate Justices Tim Mason, Georgia Buckhalter and Cecily Welsh agreed that they did not have the authority to directly tell the Senate what rules to make to govern future elections. Michel said a direct order would be inching [the court] closer to party politics. The justices decided the Senate has the power to validate the elections in terms of counting votes and assuring accuracy. However, they agreed the Supreme Court determines the fairness of the elections. Mason pointed out that because members of the Senate are chosen in these elections, having the Senate determine fairness would be a If a student claims the validation should be postponed, as members of the Students Party did in the fall elections, justices injunction to delay the validation. Future elections complaints will be assessed using the question: Were the students materially prevented from expressing their political will? The justices will make sugpoint out what would have cor rected some of the errors in this cycles elections. The justices agreed it will be up to the Senate as to whether it will take the suggestions. Mason said he did not want to see the same issues he saw in past weeks. Im going to be less forgiving, he said.UF Supreme Court addresses authority over SG elections JENNA BOXAlligator Contributing WriterAbout 200 people showed up Wednesday evening at the Buddy & Anne MacKay Auditorium to hear CNN national security analyst Peter Bergen speak about the United States hunt for Osama bin Laden. The Bob Graham Center for Public Service organized the event, which was free and open to the public. The center paid $8,000 to bring Bergen to speak, according to Ann Henderson, director of the center. After 10 years of simply not knowing where one of the biggest terrorist leaders in the world was, Bergen said, he is now dead, and there is reason to be comfortable with the future security of America and the rest of the world. Bergen, who is an author and journalist as well, met bin Laden face to face in 1997 when he conducted an interview for CNN. After meeting bin Laden and studying his actions, Bergen said he was a paranoid, secretive man who was very concerned with being relevant to the world. While he was in hiding, he produced multiple video and audio clips to keep himself known. Bergen attributes the war on terror to religious fanaticism. If bin Laden were here today, Bergen said, he would say the war was waged in the name of religion. Henderson said she thought Bergens perspective was interesting. We often dont discuss religion in public light, Henderson said, and yet it has a real effect on our security, of course, but also on the making of our public policy. Today, the war on terror is over, Ber gen said. What is of importance is the domestic issue of the economy, he said. The economy as it stands can pose a long-term national security problem. The death of bin Laden is a way of saying its time to move on, he said. We didnt kill every Nazi in World War II to end World War II. There will be no surrender with al-Qaida, but they will slowly fade into history.CNN analyst discusses Osama bin Laden at Bob Graham CenterJustices to suggest improved procedures

ues were people and even people were statues. Starting today, the removal process of the 15 on-campus statues will begin, with the exception of Whispering Close. The 20-foot-tall sculpture in the Plaza of the Americas will be here to stay until March. The rest will return to the artists studio in New Jersey and will likely become part of other inter national exhibitions over the next year, according to Paula Stoeke, director of The Sculpture Foundation, which is based in California. UF spokeswoman Janine Sikes said the initiative was brought forth by the College of Fine Arts and funded with $35,000 from the Provost Discretionary Fund, which uses donations funneled through the University of Florida Foundation. The other 10 statues in downtown Gainesville, which cost $21,000 and were funded by city sponsorships, will be removed Tuesday, said Sarah Vidal-Finn, senior analyst of Gainesville Community Redevelopment Agency. College of Fine Arts spokesman Andy Howard said the program Crossing Paths was designed to bridge Creative B, an opportunity to explore arts and culture during the Summer B semester, with National Arts and Humanities month in October. The role of the statues downtown and on campus is to begin conversation about public art and start dialogue about what the city should look like, Howard said. Its about public participation. Its made to be interacted with in a way a lot of other art isnt, Howard said. The point of it wasnt to curate. The point was to have a discussion. Lucinda Lavelli, dean of the College of Fine Arts, said compared to other major universities UF is lacking in its sculpture holdings. I hear a lot of comments that we never get to see the arts, theyre always going on inside, behind theaters, in galleries, Lavelli said. The sculptures are part of making the environment more creative and interactive. Scale, a company that tracks employee salary information, the major with the highest median starting salary was petroleum engineering, with a starting salary of $97,900. Chemical and electrical engineering took second and third with starting salaries of $64,500 and $61,300, respectively. The median starting salary for anthropology majors was $35,600. For psychology majors, it was $35,000. Paul DAnieri, dean of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, said in an email that a liberal arts education gives students a versatility that allows them to adapt to a wide variety of jobs, including ones that havent been invented yet. Educating people with the creativity and aptitude to invent new jobs and to adapt to new jobs is what a liberal arts education is all about, DAnieri said. And the record of success is obvious. A 2008 study by Duke University and Harvard University surveyed the CEOs and heads of product engineering at 502 technology companies. The researchers found that while 92 percent held bachelors degrees or higher, only 37 percent held degrees in engineering or computer technology. DAnieri also said Scott has failed to recognize some of the crucial roles anthropologists play in the state of Florida. For example, tourism, one of Floridas largest industries, relies heavily on anthropologists who preserve and explain historical sites. He also pointed out the importance of forensic and biological anthropology to law enforcement during criminal investigations, as well as the cultural anthropologists who work with the military to help them develop construction relationships with foreign civilian populations. The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences is the largest at UF, with 42 majors and about 13,400 students. In 2010, 3,220 students graduated from CLAS with bachelors degrees. Of those graduates, 257 had anthropology degrees. The largest degree program at UF is psychology with 485 graduates in 2010. This is followed by 405 and political science with 362. DAnieri pointed out that many of the liberal arts graduates will not go on to work in graduate degree. Students with liberal arts degrees often dual major or use their undergraduate degrees to apply to law or medical school. This is the case with Jessica Branston, a 21-year-old psychology senior who plans to attend medical school. She said she understands technical majors but thinks taking away funding from liberal arts programs would be akin to taking away the arts. Through those majors, we learn so much. We learn about cultures, languages, behavior, she said. We learn about our selves.

Todays question: Are you glad the statues are being removed from campus and around Gainesville?Not-So-Slick RickGovernor should leave liberal arts aloneFor Gov. Rick Scott, the preparation of a competent workforce should be the sole purpose of a college education. Who needs to ask questions about our role in the universe or the meaning of justice or the epistemological foundations of truth or the philosophical basis of our legal system? No, Scott believes we go to college to get a job. His goal for the state is to pull the focus (and the funding) away from liberal arts and direct resources toward degrees where people can get jobs in this state. Yes, many of us enter college with the ambition of one day doing something we love. But during this journey, it is our College presents an opportunity for all of us to question the foundations upon which our entire belief systems stand. Although the goal of liberal education should not be to make you forgo your beliefs or leave you with the conclusion that there is no right way to look at the world, it should attempt to present alternative views throughout a variety of disciplines. It should force you to justify modern ideas that are often taken for granted. Is democracy the best political system? Should pure gender equality be a desired goal for society? By answering these questions and more through the examination of ancient and modern philosophy, literature and scholarly work, students (should hopefully) enter the real world with a truly well-rounded understanding. They should also graduate with the ability to support the ideas on which they base their personal behavior and political beliefs. Scotts top-down approach to education makes the claim that he is for smaller government laughable. He has shown a complete disregard for the purpose of a university education. Instead, he has used GOP talking points to try to reform the university system. He should let those closest to the front lines of Floridas university system determine the proper course for educating our students, not legislators in Tallahassee. By ridding the university system of liberal arts programs, will create a huge bubble that will lead to higher unemployment in those sectors. There is already a huge higher education bubble getting ready to burst, and this move by Scott will only increase its self-destructive growth. There are more than 12,000 undergraduates and 2,000 graduate students at UFs College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. the idiotic behavior of politicians like Scott. Anger is not enough to change the worldIt appears that Occupy Gainesville is ready and raring to go. I hope that its demonstrations Wednesday will have proven this column wrong. Despite the lack of media coverage that accompanied its aged to become big news. Its drawn in thousands of protesters, all willing to vehemently picket and, in some instances, face arrest and police abuse for their actions. It has extended outside of New York City, sweeping the nation as it calls upon the beleaguered 99 percent to stand up for its beliefs. But what is it the protesters believe? That hasnt been made clear. Surely we know what theyre protesting against, in an abstract form. Theyre protesting against the wealthy elite. Theyre protesting against the conservative right. Theyre protesting against a government that provides for the rich and defrauds the poor. And as their clever (and at times devastating) Tumblr website in our nation. Dont get me wrong, those are good reasons to protest. The top 1 percent currently earns 21 percent of the income and, more importantly, maintains 57 percent of the nonhousing wealth. The divide is egregious, and its certainly worth complaining about. But that doesnt make a good case for a revolution. InOccupy Wall Street movement. wallst.org, lists no agenda, no demands and no purpose. Occupy Orlandos letter to Central Florida outright states, We acknowledge that we have yet to offer a comprehensive plan This isnt just a leaderless movement. This is a movement without direction or aim. I wont deny its done a damn good job of getting attention and getting people riled up. The now famous YouTube video of NYC protestor Jesse LaGreca bashing Fox News went viral at rapid speeds, making up for the fact that it was never aired But nowhere did it mention what Occupy Wall Street is actually trying to achieve. It was a wellarticulated, effective attack aimed at the corporate news media. And unfortunately, thats all it really was. As fascinating as it is to see a diverse group of people yelling its grievances at the top of its lungs, invading the national consciousness and taking the media by storm, its some sort of common purpose. At the moment, it doesnt have one. Ironically enough, perhaps one of the clearest and most helpful explanations of the Occupy Wall Street agenda came from a major American corporation, Ben & Jerrys. On its the country. Basically, Ben & Jerrys is doing Occupy Wall Streets job for it. The fact is, its easy to get people mad. And there are some damn good reasons to be angry. We should be furious. And we should be doing something about it. But anger is not enough. You can decry the way the nation functions all day and all night for weeks and weeks on end. But thats not good enough. Thats not going to get us out of this mess. To be frank, without a proposed solution, all youre doing is taking a dump on the government and big business. Or, rather, police cars, as the case may be.

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 13, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 7 UF College Democrats begins voter registrationGators for Obama, a committee of the UF College Democrats, began the organizations voter registration project Wednesday. It is registering voters from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Tur lington Plaza as a start to an ongoing effort to ensure students are registered to vote in Alachua County for upcoming elections. The College Democrats had previously delayed registration operations due to barriers established in the controversial new voting laws passed by the Florida legislature this year. Now, the organization has completed measuring the new risks precautions needed for another successful year of voter registration on campus. Of course, the College Democrats understands that students more often give their votes to Democratic candidates. In fact, the student vote was critical in the election of President Barack Obama and in the large, acrossthe-board Democratic victory in 2008. The College Democrats hopes to get a head start in time for the presidential election in 2012 so that students at UF may have their voice heard once again. The College Democrats is a student organization representing the Democratic Party at UF. We seek to promote party ideals, campaign for candidates and issues, hold demonstrations, provide political opportunities and unite students who share our beliefs. Ford Dwyer Editorial Director UF College DemocratsLetters to the EditorI am writing this in response to Travis Hornsbys column, Why I am no longer liberal-minded. With no disrespect to Hornsby (I agree with everything he said, in fact), he is not saying anything about the big picture. And I have to hand it to him for working for Kerry, the least likable and least articulate Democratic candidate in living memory. Like Hornsby, I grew up lower-middleclass. My dad was a middle school teacher, and my mom raised us kids. We had enough to eat and a decent house in the country but had no disposable wealth at all. I grew up in another swing state, New Hampshire, which you may recall was the sole New England state to cast its electoral votes for Bush in 2000. Like Hornsby, I was raised a DemoHornsby, I am not an economics major; I studied mechanical engineering in New the defense industry before coming back to school. And unlike Hornsby, I have years. I share his outrage when I see a man get an unemployment check who does not need one. I share his disgust with unions that keep wages equal for good and bad employees and who keep a co-worker employed when he should be let go as soon as possible. I would critique the government further and say that I saw many a tax dollar frivolously spent at my workplace. But I have also seen a few things Travis has not. I bought a house at the markets peak and saw my life savings evaporate overnight. I have seen health insurance health care costs) soar over the last decade while personal income stagnated or fell. I have seen the gap between rich and poor grow. I have seen friends and family struggle through the worst job market in a century. So, I ask a few rhetorical questions to all Alligator readers: What is more outrageous: a misguided fare check to an unworthy recipient or a multibillion dollar, multinational corporatax year (General Electric)? Which one is a result of a liberal agenda, and which one a result of a conservative agenda? of Goldman Sachs raking in hundreds of millions, if not billions, of dollars in per sonal income by creating and selling credit default swaps while the mortgage investors and mortgagees alike see their investments go up in smoke or little brother Hornsby getting a modest Social Security check for having an old dad? Which one is a result of government policy and which one a result of personal greed? nancial crisis bear any resemblance to the events leading up to the Great Depression? Which U.S. president presided over the lation put in place directly following the recession? Which Federal Reserve Board chairman presided over the same? Would you rather pay insurance premiums directly into the back pockets of the Health Care and later be denied coverage when you develop pancreatic cancer? Or would you start to realize that maybe, just maybe, this is something that the government can do cheaper and more equitably. What do we as a society think about (liberal) regulation to protect the environment, which the GOP seems so ready to tear apart on its campaign trail? Do we think these are impediments to business and economic growth? Or are they valuable checks on corporate greed that allow us all to breathe the air, drink the water, and eat seafood safely? What do we as a society think of the Occupy Wall Street movement? I will tell you what I think: These people are not out there because theyre lazy; theyre out there because the economic reality of Reaganism, Greenspanism and Credit -Default -Swapism has left them with nothing. As a liberal, I believe that the political (social) system is here to (try to) protect us from the greed of individuals who control of those who either come from money or through a combination of luck and a business major landing a really good job in the basically everyone else. The former is responsible for keeping yacht clubs nationwide in business; the later is responsible for most, if not all, of the actual production. If you are truly lucky, you own your own business and belong to both groups, but that is very rare in todays economy. Without a liberalized government, I do believe this country would and is in the process of regressing to something resembling the laissez faire social injustice of the early 20th century, or perhaps the serfdom of the early second millennium. While I do not recommend anyone without a raging case of insomnia try to read Karl Marx, his ideas are just as relevant today as when I look forward to Hornsbys rebuttal. I especially look forward to an explanation of who Michael Mankiw is and what exactly (in laymans terms) he is trying to convey when he tells us that the marginal tax rate is 100 percent on $40,000 or less. I have no doubt its true, but I dont know what he is getting at.

The Hippodrome Theatres latest production, Turn of the Screw, based on the 1898 novella by Henry James, tells the story of a governess (Nichole Hamilton) who, while caring for 10-year-old Miles and his sister, Flora, faces the ghosts of her predecessor and her lover. Director Lauren Caldwell said she chose to work with Turn of the Screw because of the theatricality involved in the production, as there are no props or costume changes. Its a real actors piece, Caldwell said. Its magical to watch without relying on Rather than one actor being assigned to each character, Caldwells performers pose as different characters; Christopher Swan plays the master of the Bly manor, the housekeeper (Mrs. Grose) and Miles. Theres a lot of theatricality when the governess is the only constant character, Caldwell said. The male character makes up her entire world; he threads the characters together. Although his roles are male and female, young and old, Swan said he has no difThe play is totally actor-driven, he said. I just inhabit the truth and let my body follow suit. Hamilton said that while the language of Turn of the Screw is still dense, this adaptation is more accessible for a contemporary audience. The book gives more answers, but the play gives more questions, she said. Thats what makes it so exciting. According to Caldwell, part of the appeal of Turn of the Screw is its ambiguity. The journey is left up to the person riding on the tailcoats of the governess the legitimacy of her visions. In a timely fashion, Caldwell said the een theme based on its eerie nature and ghost motif. Turn of the Screw opened preview shows Wednesday and runs through Nov. 6. Ticket prices range from $12 to $32.

10, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, OCTOBER 13, 2011 DIANA LOPEZ Avenue Writer Try as you might, there is no winning against Lady Luck. The house always wins. This year at Universal Orlandos Halloween Horror Nights 21, Lady Luck has meddled with eight lives, creating ruin and bloody despair. According to T.J. Mannarino, show director of the entertainment team for Universal Orlando, this year will feature eight haunted houses, six scare zones and two live shows. Heres the Avenues breakdown of the event, beginning with the haunted houses. Edgar Allen Poe is faced with the decision ing out of military school. The seller of his ticket, and secret goddess of misfortune Lady Luck, comes into the picture, and Poes sanity dwindles. While walking through the house, you are descending into the madness of Poes mind, and his greatest works come to life. The fourth ship of Christopher Columbus will be put to light this year as the sailors of the condemned voyage whisper in your ears and wreak havoc on passers-by. A mutinous and cursed crew roams through the walls of their watery graves, seeking vengeance. In this dark comedy-type of haunted house, H.R. Bloodengutz will be presenting his annual televised SCARE-athon. This year, however, his frustrations of being canceled as a television host take form, and each national holiday is given a new coat of horror. The Feaster Bunny, evil leprechauns and dead presidents will air, according to Mannarino. Based on Universal Pictures upcoming thriller The Thing, an abandoned research facility in Antarctica is infected with an alien phenomenon as the team encounters the shape-shifting alien. In this utopian society, the water is gone, and people chop up body parts and put them into grinders to suck out the water for the city, Mannarino said.

THE MUSIC FESTIVAL WILL RUN FRIDAY THROUGH SUNDAY ON THE SHORE OF PENSACOLA BEACH. ERICA A. HERNANDEZAvenue Writer In 1559, Spanish conquistador Tristn De Luna y Arellano and his shipmates landed on what is now know as Pensacola, and they celebrated their arrival with an enormous beach par ty. This tradition lives on with the perfect beach party: DeLuna Fest. The second annual DeLuna Fest will be held from Friday through Sunday on Pensacola Beach and will feature a lineup of more than 70 bands, including Janes Addiction, Weezer, The Shins, Girl Talk, Cut Copy, Diplo, Big Boi, Matt and Kim, Ra Ra Riot, Cold War Kids, The New Pornographers, The War on Drugs, The Limousines and Wanda Jackson. Gregg Michael Gillis, otherwise known as Girl Talk, creates experimental electronic music mash-ups, or as he likes to describe it, digitally mangled pop music, and will take the stage Friday. Gillis, a biomedical engineer turned experimental music sensation, is a true nerd. He Saran-wraps his laptop before each of his wild performances. I always have people on stage at shows; that kind of develI started to break computers on a regular basis from people standing on the table and a high heel going through the laptop It was very chaotic and messy, so I started covering [my] comWhen asked if he had anything special planned for DeLuna, Gillis said: Every show to me is unique. The people (who) are there will govern what the surprise will be. So, DeLuna attendees, get ready to get wild with the coolest ex-engineer in the music business. On the other end of the musical spectrum, The War on Drugs will perform Saturday. Its kinda psych and kinda classic, like running classic rock radio through a lot of psychedelic effects, The War on Drugs bassist and guitarist Dave Hartley said of the bands sound. Hartley also weighed the differences between performing at festivals versus small club shows. The advantage of a festival is that you are playing for peobut probably at least half didnt. Its a totally different thing. Its a little bit tougher of a crowd, but I think its better, he said. Matt and Kim will bring even more genre variety to the festival with its performance Friday. Were not exactly in a single genre; we are sort of a ener getic, dance-y, fun kind of music, said vocalist and keyboardist Matt Johnson. I remember we played this one festival in Coney Island; during the last song I egged the audience to follow me into the and started running to the ocean with a huge crowd of people behind us. Maybe well have to pull something like that out again, Johnson said about plans for DeLuna. Guests can either choose to attend single days or all three days of the festival. A single day pass costs $75 while a threeday general admission pass costs $189.95 or $215 if purchased on the day of the show. However, students were offered a bit of a sweeter deal campus, giving away free DeLuna swag and offering students three-day passes at the discounted rate of $105. We did this because of what our lineup is. We want to get young people interested, and we want them to stay and attend the festival for years to come. Plus its hard to be a student these days, said AshleeAnne Palmer, DeLuna VIP hotel coordinator and local event organizer.

Incoming freshman guard Brad Beal brings with him an accomplished rsum, but he is also keeping an even keel. See Story, Page 18. Brett Le Blanc / Alligator StaffBackup linebacker Dee Finley will transfer from Florida, the school announced in a release Wednesday. Finley came to Gainesville as a four-star prospect out of Auburn, Ala., but he played sparingly in two-plus seasons. RECORDED JUST 12 TACKLES IN TWO YEARS. TYLER JETTAlligator Staff Writer Linebacker Dee Finley has decided to transfer from Flor ida, the team announced in a statement Wednesday. Finley, a sophomore from Auburn (Ala.) High, was suspended for one game after he was charged Sept. 12 for driving with a suspended license and resisting arrest. He saw limited action in Floridas othtackles. Although Ive enjoyed my time here at Florida, I think its best for me to move on and get a fresh start somewhere else, Finley said in the statement. Coach Will Muschamp said Wednesday that he and Finley talked the other night about the linebacker transferring, but Muschamp did not elaborate on why Finley wanted to leave. Defensive coordinator Dan Quinn said he did not know why Finley was transferring. I wish him the best, Quinn said. Rated a four-star safety by Rivals.com, Finley signed with Florida in 2008, but he arrived a semester late after failing to qualify academically. Once on unremarkable, registering 12 tackles in 19 games. en games last season after fracturing his collarbone. He will continue to take classes at Florida until the end of the semester, according to the release. Powell underperforming: Quinn said he has been disappointed in Buck linebacker Ronald Powells performance this season. The sophomore was expected to be a leader, but he has only 14 tackles in six games. Powell had one tackle against LSU, though he sat out the second half because of an injury. For us, at that position, we would certainly want the production to be higher, Quinn said. Powell needs to get a better jump off the ball when rushing the passer, Quinn said. He has two sacks and three quarter back hits this year. Quinn said Powell also needs to play the run better. When teams run to Powells side, he has not been able to Finley transferring from Florida, looking for fresh start JOHN BOOTHEAlligator Staff Writer After unloading three big bodies to graduation and the NBA Draft, the With an enviable amount of depth at the guard position compared to past years, coach Billy Donovan feels Florida has the athleticism to press more on defense and become a more dangerous team in transition. I think because we have speed and quickness in our backcourt, that we rebe more of a full-court defensive team, he said. While Donovan doesnt expect the full 40 minutes, he has the man power this year to entertain the notion. UF returns its top two defensive guards in junior Kenny Boynton and UF looking for balance with guard-heavy rosterAfter posting the worst back-to-back losses in the last 40 years, it would be easy for players and coaches to point With John Brantley out, the offense has been atrocious, and the defense not much better.

Junior Mike Rosario, a 6-foot-3 combo guard, is also eligible to play after sitting out a year following his transfer from Rutgers, and highly touted freshman Bradley Beal is being welcomed into the fold. Certainly the last few years, I think with our depth in the backcourt, really Erving and Kenny Boynton logWalker said he doesnt quite know how the Gators on-court product will take shape until practice starts, but he anticipates they will be able to force more turnovers. Last year, Florida was in the bottom half of the Southeastern Conference in both steals and turnover margin. Knowing that we have a lot more depth, and knowI think well be a much more fast-paced team and try to With the departures of 6-foot-10 senior starters Vernon Macklin and Chandler Parsons, as well as 6-foot-8 bination of three sophomores, a junior and a redshirt freshman will also have to play an aggressive role in running the court.

As the No. 4 overall prospect in the nation, Beal could have come into the Gators locker room with the stereotypical sense of entitlement attributed to some big-named prospects. He could have made it clear he was gunning for his teammates jobs and tried to get under the skin of older, experienced UF guards like Kenny Boynton or Erving Walker. When he came in, I didnt said. But Beal didnt do any of those things. Instead, the 6-foot3 guard lauded for his sweet stroke chose to defer. Hes got a really good understanding of team chemisThe one thing I admire is guy like that come in, when theres a level of humility and respect and understanding that there are some guys here before like to see Beal become more aggressive on the court. With a crowded back court featuring two returning starters in Boynton and Walker, Beal said he prefers to sit back and absorb everything he can. Hes got the little freshman Patric Young said.

But theres also been plenty of cause for concern on the other side of the ball. Florida has given up 79 points and 819 yards of total offense the last two weeks, and the defense has allowed The Gators have also had plenty of problems stopping the run. That has to get better going forward. Theres no question about it. So which unit is at fault for the losses? The answer is simple: both. Dan Quinn isnt making excuses for his defense, saying its job is to stop the offense, no matter the situation its put in. I kind of look at it from a different angle, he said. Quinn said a lot of the defenses struggles have been opposed to being put in bad positions by an inept offense. To a degree, hes right, as the Gators allowed a 50-percent conversion rate the last two weeks. More concerning perhaps, the unit did not force a single turnover. Thats one of the things weve been disappointed in the last two weeks: not creating opportunities for the offense, Quinn said. But Florida has scored a combined 21 points in the two games, and Charlie Weis is also holding the offense accountable, saying putting up that few points simply wont get the job done. Obviously we cant be scoring 10 and 11 points and winning football games, he said. Florida has to play better in every facet, including special teams. And until that happens, there will be plenty of reasons why not. Contact Matt Watts at mwatts@alligator.org. THURSDAY, OCTOBER 13, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 19 GREG LUCAAlligator Staff Writer Who starts at quarterback? Thats been the No. 1 question not only in Gainesville but also in Auburn, Ala., where speculation has been rampant that freshman Kiehl Frazier could replace junior Barrett Trotter. But unlike the way UF coach Will Muschamp has handled his dilemma, Auburn head man Gene Chizik put the issue to rest early on. Barrett is our quarterback today, and he is our quarterback on Saturday, Chizik said. passes for 81 yards and an interception in Saturdays 38-14 loss at Arkansas. ingly split time with Frazier, who came to Auburn as the No. 5 quarterback in the country, according to Rivals.com. Frazier took 28 snaps against the Razorbacks and was just 2 of 4 with a pair of interceptions. But he ran the ball effectively, carrying 13 times for 54 yards and a touchdown while adding another dimension to Auburns already potent running game. We dont see it as a two-quarterback system, we see it as a changeup, Chizik said. Its really no more complicated than that. How much the Tigers use Frazier will be based on their matchup, Chizik said, putting the ball back in Muschamps court. While Floridas Jeff Driskel and Jacoby Brissett play a very similar style, Auburns two options are nearly polar opposites. That poses a challenge for Muschamp and defensive coordinator Dan Quinn, who have to prepare game plans to combat two very distinct signal-callers. Muschamp has one advantage: Auburn has already named its starter. That helps if the two quarterbacks are different, Muschamp said. When youre talking about two totally different, talented guys as far as doing different things, then yes, that poses some problems. But Trotter starting doesnt rule out the chance of Frazier changing gears and utilizing a number of unique formations, especially with Chizik and offensive coordinator Gus Malzahn at the helm. The Tigers can play offense at various tempos and often like to apply pressure with their quick-hitting, no-huddle attack. To prepare, the Gators have scrimmaged their defense against a unit with two huddles, giving the offense the preparation advantage it needs to simulate Auburns speed. That was a really important part, Quinn said. To understand, watch tape together and see how fast the action went and how fast you have to get back to the line of scrimmage. Contact Greg Luca at gluca@alligator.org.Two-quarterback situation not limited just to Florida WATTS, from page 17Muschamp wants one quarterback to emergecontain the edge. According to Quinn, Powell will still start against No. 24 Auburn on Saturday. Looking for a QB leader: Muschamp did not name a starting quarterback Wednesday morning, though he wants Jacoby Brissett or Jeff Driskel to establish himself as the starter going forward. Id love for one of them to really step up and play really well and go from there, Muschamp said. But, again, we will manage that as we roll through this season, and I couldnt think of anybodys better hands to be in than (those of offensive coor dinator) Charlie Weis. This is the second straight week Florida has been undecided about its starting quar terback midway through the week. Muschamp said after Saturdays loss that he chose Brissett on Wednesday night.

And the Gators hope that experience can help them avoid a chronic problem from the 2010-11 campaign turnovers. Coach Amanda Butlers squad ranked next to last in the Southeastern Conference last season with a minus-1.23 turnover margin per game. One of the contributing factors to that issue was Floridas switch to a more up-tempo style on the court. While Butler does not like to see mistakes from her team, she tends to be more forgiving if her players slip up while playing aggressively. Mistakes are going to happen, and when you play fast, then youre trying to force the action, which we Butler said. Turnovers are sometimes the negative byproduct of Florida was ultimately undone by turnovers last season, leading the SEC with 614 giveaways. The Gators inability to effectively take care of the basketball partially stemmed from the squads lack of experience playing together. Half of last seasons roster played 11, but the team is in a much better position one year later, returning 10 players. Everybody just knows that more guard Brittany Shine said.

But the defense still needs work, as Florida surrendered 64.5 points per game, the third-worst mark in the conference. Our intensity, especially on defense, is more of an emphasis this Bonds said.

Chip Skinner, the RTS Marketing and Communications supervisor, said he sees a number of factors behind the increase. In the last few years, weve been seeing, on average, about a 3 percent growth, he said. A lot of different studies have shown that it costs between $8,000 and $10,000 to have a vehicle for one year. With the bus system, youre only paying approximately $420 a year. The RTS employee-bus-pass program is another boost. Employers buy employee bus passes that provide workers with unlimited access to the bus system. An additional cause is Santa Fe Colleges new transportation fee. SFC students are now able to receive free transport on a bus after showing a student ID. They have that prepaid unlimited access now because its associated with each credit hour, just like UFs transportation fee, Skinner said. That increased our ridership out to that particular area. As ridership grows, full buses become an issue for students, especially in the early morning blocks. If [students] are encountering full buses now, they may want to explore other options later in the day, Skinner said. We are in the people-moving business, and we dont want to leave anyone on the road, if possible. Skinner doesnt see the growth stopping anytime soon. RTS is anticipating 10.3 million riders next year.

Rick Scott may not think your degree is worth funding. In an interview with the Sarasota HeraldTribune on Monday, Gov. Rick Scott laid out his plans for higher-education reform one of his top priorities for the state legislature when it convenes in January. In addition to rethinking faculty security, Scott said he hopes to move more funding to programs that promise the best job opportunities after graduation, namely the science, technology, engineering and math departments, or STEM disciplines. This would ideally draw more high-tech companies to the state, thereby increasing job opportunities. The governor cited liberal arts degrees like anthropology and psychology as examples of those with poor job prospects, saying he hopes to come up with more ways to incentivize students to pursue the STEM disciplines while discouraging them from liberal arts tracks. If Im going to take money from a citizen to put into education, then Im going to take that money to create jobs, Scott told the Herald-Tribune. So I want that money to go to degrees where people can get jobs in this state. Is it a vital interest of the state to have more anthropologists? I dont think so. UF President Bernie Machen said he agrees that the state should emphasize and support STEM disciplines, noting UF is a very scienceintensive university. However, Machen said he would not support funding STEM degrees at the expense of liberal arts programs. Scott also told the Herald-Tribune that he wants universities to provide their students with information about the average salary for each degree program.

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 13, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 3 Olivia Muenter / Alligator  CNN national security analyst Peter Bergen discusses his opinion and knowledge Wednesday night of national security, terrorism and the hunt and eventual capture of Osama bin Laden. CLARE LENNONAlligator WriterFour of the UF Supreme Court justices outlined measures for future elections cycles at a meeting Wednesday night. The justices asserted the courts authority in elections with an outline that limits the author ity of the Student Senate, details the responsibilities of the court and touches on the fall elections procedures, which prompted the meeting. None of these limits are published. The court has no set publication date. The court lifted an injunction Monday that had postponed the Senates vote to validate the elections. The decision came after an investigation into elections procedures that the court ordered the Election Commission to carry out. Chief Justice Matt Michel and Associate Justices Tim Mason, Georgia Buckhalter and Cecily Welsh agreed that they did not have the authority to directly tell the Senate what rules to make to govern future elections. Michel said a direct order would be inching [the court] closer to party politics. The justices decided the Senate has the power to validate the elections in terms of counting votes and assuring accuracy. However, they agreed the Supreme Court determines the fairness of the elections. Mason pointed out that because members of the Senate are chosen in these elections, having the Senate determine fairness would be a If a student claims the validation should be postponed, as members of the Students Party did in the fall elections, justices injunction to delay the validation. Future elections complaints will be assessed using the question: Were the students materially prevented from expressing their political will? The justices will make sugpoint out what would have cor rected some of the errors in this cycles elections. The justices agreed it will be up to the Senate as to whether it will take the suggestions. Mason said he did not want to see the same issues he saw in past weeks. Im going to be less forgiving, he said.UF Supreme Court addresses authority over SG elections JENNA BOXAlligator Contributing WriterAbout 200 people showed up Wednesday evening at the Buddy & Anne MacKay Auditorium to hear CNN national security analyst Peter Bergen speak about the United States hunt for Osama bin Laden. The Bob Graham Center for Public Service organized the event, which was free and open to the public. The center paid $8,000 to bring Bergen to speak, according to Ann Henderson, director of the center. After 10 years of simply not knowing where one of the biggest terrorist leaders in the world was, Bergen said, he is now dead, and there is reason to be comfortable with the future security of America and the rest of the world. Bergen, who is an author and journalist as well, met bin Laden face to face in 1997 when he conducted an interview for CNN. After meeting bin Laden and studying his actions, Bergen said he was a paranoid, secretive man who was very concerned with being relevant to the world. While he was in hiding, he produced multiple video and audio clips to keep himself known. Bergen attributes the war on terror to religious fanaticism. If bin Laden were here today, Bergen said, he would say the war was waged in the name of religion. Henderson said she thought Bergens perspective was interesting. We often dont discuss religion in public light, Henderson said, and yet it has a real effect on our security, of course, but also on the making of our public policy. Today, the war on terror is over, Bergen said. What is of importance is the domestic issue of the economy, he said. The economy as it stands can pose a long-term national security problem. The death of bin Laden is a way of saying its time to move on, he said. We didnt kill every Nazi in World War II to end World War II. There will be no surrender with al-Qaida, but they will slowly fade into history.CNN analyst discusses Osama bin Laden at Bob Graham CenterJustices to suggest improved procedures

ues were people and even people were statues. Starting today, the removal process of the 15 on-campus statues will begin, with the exception of Whispering Close. The 20-foot-tall sculpture in the Plaza of the Americas will be here to stay until March. The rest will return to the artists studio in New Jersey and will likely become part of other international exhibitions over the next year, according to Paula Stoeke, director of The Sculpture Foundation, which is based in California. UF spokeswoman Janine Sikes said the initiative was brought forth by the College of Fine Arts and funded with $35,000 from the Provost Discretionary Fund, which uses donations funneled through the University of Florida Foundation. The other 10 statues in downtown Gainesville, which cost $21,000 and were funded by city sponsorships, will be removed Tuesday, said Sarah Vidal-Finn, senior analyst of Gainesville Community Redevelopment Agency. College of Fine Arts spokesman Andy Howard said the program Crossing Paths was designed to bridge Creative B, an opportunity to explore arts and culture during the Summer B semester, with National Arts and Humanities month in October. The role of the statues downtown and on campus is to begin conversation about public art and start dialogue about what the city should look like, Howard said. Its about public participation. Its made to be interacted with in a way a lot of other art isnt, Howard said. The point of it wasnt to curate. The point was to have a discussion. Lucinda Lavelli, dean of the College of Fine Arts, said compared to other major universities UF is lacking in its sculpture holdings. I hear a lot of comments that we never get to see the arts, theyre always going on inside, behind theaters, in galleries, Lavelli said. The sculptures are part of making the environment more creative and interactive. Scale, a company that tracks employee salary information, the major with the highest median starting salary was petroleum engineering, with a starting salary of $97,900. Chemical and electrical engineering took second and third with starting salaries of $64,500 and $61,300, respectively. The median starting salary for anthropology majors was $35,600. For psychology majors, it was $35,000. Paul DAnieri, dean of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, said in an email that a liberal arts education gives students a versatility that allows them to adapt to a wide variety of jobs, including ones that havent been invented yet. Educating people with the creativity and aptitude to invent new jobs and to adapt to new jobs is what a liberal arts education is all about, DAnieri said. And the record of success is obvious. A 2008 study by Duke University and Harvard University surveyed the CEOs and heads of product engineering at 502 technology companies. The researchers found that while 92 percent held bachelors degrees or higher, only 37 percent held degrees in engineering or computer technology. DAnieri also said Scott has failed to recognize some of the crucial roles anthropologists play in the state of Florida. For example, tourism, one of Floridas largest industries, relies heavily on anthropologists who preserve and explain historical sites. He also pointed out the importance of forensic and biological anthropology to law enforcement during criminal investigations, as well as the cultural anthropologists who work with the military to help them develop construction relationships with foreign civilian populations. The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences is the largest at UF, with 42 majors and about 13,400 students. In 2010, 3,220 students graduated from CLAS with bachelors degrees. Of those graduates, 257 had anthropology degrees. The largest degree program at UF is psychology with 485 graduates in 2010. This is followed by 405 and political science with 362. DAnieri pointed out that many of the liberal arts graduates will not go on to work in graduate degree. Students with liberal arts degrees often dual major or use their undergraduate degrees to apply to law or medical school. This is the case with Jessica Branston, a 21-year-old psychology senior who plans to attend medical school. She said she understands technical majors but thinks taking away funding from liberal arts programs would be akin to taking away the arts. Through those majors, we learn so much. We learn about cultures, languages, behavior, she said. We learn about our selves.

Todays question: Are you glad the statues are being removed from campus and around Gainesville?Not-So-Slick RickGovernor should leave liberal arts aloneFor Gov. Rick Scott, the preparation of a competent workforce should be the sole purpose of a college education. Who needs to ask questions about our role in the universe or the meaning of justice or the epistemological foundations of truth or the philosophical basis of our legal system? No, Scott believes we go to college to get a job. His goal for the state is to pull the focus (and the funding) away from liberal arts and direct resources toward degrees where people can get jobs in this state. Yes, many of us enter college with the ambition of one day doing something we love. But during this journey, it is our College presents an opportunity for all of us to question the foundations upon which our entire belief systems stand. Although the goal of liberal education should not be to make you forgo your beliefs or leave you with the conclusion that there is no right way to look at the world, it should attempt to present alternative views throughout a variety of disciplines. It should force you to justify modern ideas that are often taken for granted. Is democracy the best political system? Should pure gender equality be a desired goal for society? By answering these questions and more through the examination of ancient and modern philosophy, literature and scholarly work, students (should hopefully) enter the real world with a truly well-rounded understanding. They should also graduate with the ability to support the ideas on which they base their personal behavior and political beliefs. Scotts top-down approach to education makes the claim that he is for smaller government laughable. He has shown a complete disregard for the purpose of a university education. Instead, he has used GOP talking points to try to reform the university system. He should let those closest to the front lines of Floridas university system determine the proper course for educating our students, not legislators in Tallahassee. By ridding the university system of liberal arts programs, will create a huge bubble that will lead to higher unemployment in those sectors. There is already a huge higher education bubble getting ready to burst, and this move by Scott will only increase its self-destructive growth. There are more than 12,000 undergraduates and 2,000 graduate students at UFs College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. the idiotic behavior of politicians like Scott. Anger is not enough to change the worldIt appears that Occupy Gainesville is ready and raring to go. I hope that its demonstrations Wednesday will have proven this column wrong. Despite the lack of media coverage that accompanied its aged to become big news. Its drawn in thousands of protesters, all willing to vehemently picket and, in some instances, face arrest and police abuse for their actions. It has extended outside of New York City, sweeping the nation as it calls upon the beleaguered 99 percent to stand up for its beliefs. But what is it the protesters believe? That hasnt been made clear. Surely we know what theyre protesting against, in an abstract form. Theyre protesting against the wealthy elite. Theyre protesting against the conservative right. Theyre protesting against a government that provides for the rich and defrauds the poor. And as their clever (and at times devastating) Tumblr website in our nation. Dont get me wrong, those are good reasons to protest. The top 1 percent currently earns 21 percent of the income and, more importantly, maintains 57 percent of the nonhousing wealth. The divide is egregious, and its certainly worth complaining about. But that doesnt make a good case for a revolution. InOccupy Wall Street movement. wallst.org, lists no agenda, no demands and no purpose. Occupy Orlandos letter to Central Florida outright states, We acknowledge that we have yet to offer a comprehensive plan This isnt just a leaderless movement. This is a movement without direction or aim. I wont deny its done a damn good job of getting attention and getting people riled up. The now famous YouTube video of NYC protestor Jesse LaGreca bashing Fox News went viral at rapid speeds, making up for the fact that it was never aired But nowhere did it mention what Occupy Wall Street is actually trying to achieve. It was a wellarticulated, effective attack aimed at the corporate news media. And unfortunately, thats all it really was. As fascinating as it is to see a diverse group of people yelling its grievances at the top of its lungs, invading the national consciousness and taking the media by storm, its some sort of common purpose. At the moment, it doesnt have one. Ironically enough, perhaps one of the clearest and most helpful explanations of the Occupy Wall Street agenda came from a major American corporation, Ben & Jerrys. On its the country. Basically, Ben & Jerrys is doing Occupy Wall Streets job for it. The fact is, its easy to get people mad. And there are some damn good reasons to be angry. We should be furious. And we should be doing something about it. But anger is not enough. You can decry the way the nation functions all day and all night for weeks and weeks on end. But thats not good enough. Thats not going to get us out of this mess. To be frank, without a proposed solution, all youre doing is taking a dump on the government and big business. Or, rather, police cars, as the case may be.

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 13, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 7 UF College Democrats begins voter registrationGators for Obama, a committee of the UF College Democrats, began the organizations voter registration project Wednesday. It is registering voters from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Turlington Plaza as a start to an ongoing effort to ensure students are registered to vote in Alachua County for upcoming elections. The College Democrats had previously delayed registration operations due to barriers established in the controversial new voting laws passed by the Florida legislature this year. Now, the organization has completed measuring the new risks precautions needed for another successful year of voter registration on campus. Of course, the College Democrats understands that students more often give their votes to Democratic candidates. In fact, the student vote was critical in the election of President Barack Obama and in the large, acrossthe-board Democratic victory in 2008. The College Democrats hopes to get a head start in time for the presidential election in 2012 so that students at UF may have their voice heard once again. The College Democrats is a student organization representing the Democratic Party at UF. We seek to promote party ideals, campaign for candidates and issues, hold demonstrations, provide political opportunities and unite students who share our beliefs. Ford Dwyer Editorial Director UF College DemocratsLetters to the EditorI am writing this in response to Travis Hornsbys column, Why I am no longer liberal-minded. With no disrespect to Hornsby (I agree with everything he said, in fact), he is not saying anything about the big picture. And I have to hand it to him for working for Kerry, the least likable and least articulate Democratic candidate in living memory. Like Hornsby, I grew up lower-middleclass. My dad was a middle school teacher, and my mom raised us kids. We had enough to eat and a decent house in the country but had no disposable wealth at all. I grew up in another swing state, New Hampshire, which you may recall was the sole New England state to cast its electoral votes for Bush in 2000. Like Hornsby, I was raised a DemoHornsby, I am not an economics major; I studied mechanical engineering in New the defense industry before coming back to school. And unlike Hornsby, I have years. I share his outrage when I see a man get an unemployment check who does not need one. I share his disgust with unions that keep wages equal for good and bad employees and who keep a co-worker employed when he should be let go as soon as possible. I would critique the government further and say that I saw many a tax dollar frivolously spent at my workplace. But I have also seen a few things Travis has not. I bought a house at the markets peak and saw my life savings evaporate overnight. I have seen health insurance health care costs) soar over the last decade while personal income stagnated or fell. I have seen the gap between rich and poor grow. I have seen friends and family struggle through the worst job market in a century. So, I ask a few rhetorical questions to all Alligator readers: What is more outrageous: a misguided fare check to an unworthy recipient or a multibillion dollar, multinational corporatax year (General Electric)? Which one is a result of a liberal agenda, and which one a result of a conservative agenda? of Goldman Sachs raking in hundreds of millions, if not billions, of dollars in per sonal income by creating and selling credit default swaps while the mortgage investors and mortgagees alike see their investments go up in smoke or little brother Hornsby getting a modest Social Security check for having an old dad? Which one is a result of government policy and which one a result of personal greed? nancial crisis bear any resemblance to the events leading up to the Great Depression? Which U.S. president presided over the lation put in place directly following the recession? Which Federal Reserve Board chairman presided over the same? Would you rather pay insurance premiums directly into the back pockets of the Health Care and later be denied coverage when you develop pancreatic cancer? Or would you start to realize that maybe, just maybe, this is something that the government can do cheaper and more equitably. What do we as a society think about (liberal) regulation to protect the environment, which the GOP seems so ready to tear apart on its campaign trail? Do we think these are impediments to business and economic growth? Or are they valuable checks on corporate greed that allow us all to breathe the air, drink the water, and eat seafood safely? What do we as a society think of the Occupy Wall Street movement? I will tell you what I think: These people are not out there because theyre lazy; theyre out there because the economic reality of Reaganism, Greenspanism and Credit -Default -Swapism has left them with nothing. As a liberal, I believe that the political (social) system is here to (try to) protect us from the greed of individuals who control of those who either come from money or through a combination of luck and a business major landing a really good job in the basically everyone else. The former is responsible for keeping yacht clubs nationwide in business; the later is responsible for most, if not all, of the actual production. If you are truly lucky, you own your own business and belong to both groups, but that is very rare in todays economy. Without a liberalized government, I do believe this country would and is in the process of regressing to something resembling the laissez faire social injustice of the early 20th century, or perhaps the serfdom of the early second millennium. While I do not recommend anyone without a raging case of insomnia try to read Karl Marx, his ideas are just as relevant today as when I look forward to Hornsbys rebuttal. I especially look forward to an explanation of who Michael Mankiw is and what exactly (in laymans terms) he is trying to convey when he tells us that the marginal tax rate is 100 percent on $40,000 or less. I have no doubt its true, but I dont know what he is getting at.

From playing packed house shows around Syracuse to performing at the College Music Journal Music Mar athon just six months after its formation, you could say it exploded onto the music scene. From the bands very start at Syracuse University in 2006, Ra Ra Riot established its indie KATE FELDMANAvenue WriterWhats twice as frightening as a ghost? Two ghosts. The Hippodrome Theatres latest production, Turn of the Screw, based on the 1898 novella by Henry James, tells the story of a governess (Nichole Hamilton) who, while caring for 10-year-old Miles and his sister, Flora, faces the ghosts of her predecessor and her lover. Director Lauren Caldwell said she chose to work with Turn of the Screw because of the theatricality involved in the production, as there are no props or costume changes. Its a real actors piece, Caldwell said. Its magical to watch without relying on Rather than one actor being assigned to each character, Caldwells performers pose as different characters; Christopher Swan plays the master of the Bly manor, the housekeeper (Mrs. Grose) and Miles. Theres a lot of theatricality when the governess is the only constant character, Caldwell said. The male character makes up her entire world; he threads the characters together. Although his roles are male and female, young and old, Swan said he has no difThe play is totally actor-driven, he said. I just inhabit the truth and let my body follow suit. Hamilton said that while the language of Turn of the Screw is still dense, this adaptation is more accessible for a contemporary audience. The book gives more answers, but the play gives more questions, she said. Thats what makes it so exciting. According to Caldwell, part of the appeal of Turn of the Screw is its ambiguity. The journey is left up to the person riding on the tailcoats of the governess the legitimacy of her visions. In a timely fashion, Caldwell said the een theme based on its eerie nature and ghost motif. Turn of the Screw opened preview shows Wednesday and runs through Nov. 6. Ticket prices range from $12 to $32.

10, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, OCTOBER 13, 2011 DIANA LOPEZ Avenue Writer Try as you might, there is no winning against Lady Luck. The house always wins. This year at Universal Orlandos Halloween Horror Nights 21, Lady Luck has meddled with eight lives, creating ruin and bloody despair. According to T.J. Mannarino, show director of the entertainment team for Universal Orlando, this year will feature eight haunted houses, six scare zones and two live shows. Heres the Avenues breakdown of the event, beginning with the haunted houses. Edgar Allen Poe is faced with the decision ing out of military school. The seller of his ticket, and secret goddess of misfortune Lady Luck, comes into the picture, and Poes sanity dwindles. While walking through the house, you are descending into the madness of Poes mind, and his greatest works come to life. The fourth ship of Christopher Columbus will be put to light this year as the sailors of the condemned voyage whisper in your ears and wreak havoc on passers-by. A mutinous and cursed crew roams through the walls of their watery graves, seeking vengeance. In this dark comedy-type of haunted house, H.R. Bloodengutz will be presenting his annual televised SCARE-athon. This year, however, his frustrations of being canceled as a television host take form, and each national holiday is given a new coat of horror. The Feaster Bunny, evil leprechauns and dead presidents will air, according to Mannarino. Based on Universal Pictures upcoming thriller The Thing, an abandoned research facility in Antarctica is infected with an alien phenomenon as the team encounters the shape-shifting alien. In this utopian society, the water is gone, and people chop up body parts and put them into grinders to suck out the water for the city, Mannarino said.

THE MUSIC FESTIVAL WILL RUN FRIDAY THROUGH SUNDAY ON THE SHORE OF PENSACOLA BEACH. ERICA A. HERNANDEZAvenue Writer In 1559, Spanish conquistador Tristn De Luna y Arellano and his shipmates landed on what is now know as Pensacola, and they celebrated their arrival with an enormous beach par ty. This tradition lives on with the perfect beach party: DeLuna Fest. The second annual DeLuna Fest will be held from Friday through Sunday on Pensacola Beach and will feature a lineup of more than 70 bands, including Janes Addiction, Weezer, The Shins, Girl Talk, Cut Copy, Diplo, Big Boi, Matt and Kim, Ra Ra Riot, Cold War Kids, The New Pornographers, The War on Drugs, The Limousines and Wanda Jackson. Gregg Michael Gillis, otherwise known as Girl Talk, creates experimental electronic music mash-ups, or as he likes to describe it, digitally mangled pop music, and will take the stage Friday. Gillis, a biomedical engineer turned experimental music sensation, is a true nerd. He Saran-wraps his laptop before each of his wild performances. I always have people on stage at shows; that kind of develI started to break computers on a regular basis from people standing on the table and a high heel going through the laptop It was very chaotic and messy, so I started covering [my] comWhen asked if he had anything special planned for DeLuna, Gillis said: Every show to me is unique. The people (who) are there will govern what the surprise will be. So, DeLuna attendees, get ready to get wild with the coolest ex-engineer in the music business. On the other end of the musical spectrum, The War on Drugs will perform Saturday. Its kinda psych and kinda classic, like running classic rock radio through a lot of psychedelic effects, The War on Drugs bassist and guitarist Dave Hartley said of the bands sound. Hartley also weighed the differences between performing at festivals versus small club shows. The advantage of a festival is that you are playing for peobut probably at least half didnt. Its a totally different thing. Its a little bit tougher of a crowd, but I think its better, he said. Matt and Kim will bring even more genre variety to the festival with its performance Friday. Were not exactly in a single genre; we are sort of a ener getic, dance-y, fun kind of music, said vocalist and keyboardist Matt Johnson. I remember we played this one festival in Coney Island; during the last song I egged the audience to follow me into the and started running to the ocean with a huge crowd of people behind us. Maybe well have to pull something like that out again, Johnson said about plans for DeLuna. Guests can either choose to attend single days or all three days of the festival. A single day pass costs $75 while a threeday general admission pass costs $189.95 or $215 if purchased on the day of the show. However, students were offered a bit of a sweeter deal campus, giving away free DeLuna swag and offering students three-day passes at the discounted rate of $105. We did this because of what our lineup is. We want to get young people interested, and we want them to stay and attend the festival for years to come. Plus its hard to be a student these days, said AshleeAnne Palmer, DeLuna VIP hotel coordinator and local event organizer.

Incoming freshman guard Brad Beal brings with him an accomplished rsum, but he is also keeping an even keel. See Story, Page 18. Brett Le Blanc / Alligator StaffBackup linebacker Dee Finley will transfer from Florida, the school announced in a release Wednesday. Finley came to Gainesville as a four-star prospect out of Auburn, Ala., but he played sparingly in two-plus seasons. RECORDED JUST 12 TACKLES IN TWO YEARS. TYLER JETTAlligator Staff Writer Linebacker Dee Finley has decided to transfer from Florida, the team announced in a statement Wednesday. Finley, a sophomore from Auburn (Ala.) High, was suspended for one game after he was charged Sept. 12 for driving with a suspended license and resisting arrest. He saw limited action in Floridas othtackles. Although Ive enjoyed my time here at Florida, I think its best for me to move on and get a fresh start somewhere else, Finley said in the statement. Coach Will Muschamp said Wednesday that he and Finley talked the other night about the linebacker transferring, but Muschamp did not elaborate on why Finley wanted to leave. Defensive coordinator Dan Quinn said he did not know why Finley was transferring. I wish him the best, Quinn said. Rated a four-star safety by Rivals.com, Finley signed with Florida in 2008, but he arrived a semester late after failing to qualify academically. Once on unremarkable, registering 12 tackles in 19 games. en games last season after fracturing his collarbone. He will continue to take classes at Florida until the end of the semester, according to the release. Powell underperforming: Quinn said he has been disappointed in Buck linebacker Ronald Powells performance this season. The sophomore was expected to be a leader, but he has only 14 tackles in six games. Powell had one tackle against LSU, though he sat out the second half because of an injury. For us, at that position, we would certainly want the production to be higher, Quinn said. Powell needs to get a better jump off the ball when rushing the passer, Quinn said. He has two sacks and three quarterback hits this year. Quinn said Powell also needs to play the run better. When teams run to Powells side, he has not been able to Finley transferring from Florida, looking for fresh start JOHN BOOTHEAlligator Staff Writer After unloading three big bodies to graduation and the NBA Draft, the With an enviable amount of depth at the guard position compared to past years, coach Billy Donovan feels Florida has the athleticism to press more on defense and become a more dangerous team in transition. I think because we have speed and quickness in our backcourt, that we rebe more of a full-court defensive team, he said. While Donovan doesnt expect the full 40 minutes, he has the man power this year to entertain the notion. UF returns its top two defensive guards in junior Kenny Boynton and UF looking for balance with guard-heavy rosterAfter posting the worst back-to-back losses in the last 40 years, it would be easy for players and coaches to point With John Brantley out, the offense has been atrocious, and the defense not much better.

sophomore Scottie Wilbekin, to go with senior Erving Walker, who led the Gators in scoring last season. Junior Mike Rosario, a 6-foot-3 combo guard, is also eligible to play after sitting out a year following his transfer from Rutgers, and highly touted freshman Bradley Beal is being welcomed into the fold. Certainly the last few years, I think with our depth in the backcourt, really Erving and Kenny Boynton logWalker said he doesnt quite know how the Gators on-court product will take shape until practice starts, but he anticipates they will be able to force more turnovers. Last year, Florida was in the bottom half of the Southeastern Conference in both steals and turnover margin. Knowing that we have a lot more depth, and knowI think well be a much more fast-paced team and try to With the departures of 6-foot-10 senior starters Vernon Macklin and Chandler Parsons, as well as 6-foot-8 bination of three sophomores, a junior and a redshirt freshman will also have to play an aggressive role in running the court.

As the No. 4 overall prospect in the nation, Beal could have come into the Gators locker room with the stereotypical sense of entitlement attributed to some big-named prospects. He could have made it clear he was gunning for his teammates jobs and tried to get under the skin of older, experienced UF guards like Kenny Boynton or Erving Walker. When he came in, I didnt said. But Beal didnt do any of those things. Instead, the 6-foot3 guard lauded for his sweet stroke chose to defer. Hes got a really good understanding of team chemisThe one thing I admire is guy like that come in, when theres a level of humility and respect and understanding that there are some guys here before like to see Beal become more aggressive on the court. With a crowded back court featuring two returning starters in Boynton and Walker, Beal said he prefers to sit back and absorb everything he can. Hes got the little freshman Patric Young said. Hes very mature though, Ill give him that. Hes a little nervous still, at St. Louis (Mo.)

But theres also been plenty of cause for concern on the other side of the ball. Florida has given up 79 points and 819 yards of total offense the last two weeks, and the defense has allowed The Gators have also had plenty of problems stopping the run. That has to get better going forward. Theres no question about it. So which unit is at fault for the losses? The answer is simple: both. Dan Quinn isnt making excuses for his defense, saying its job is to stop the offense, no matter the situation its put in. I kind of look at it from a different angle, he said. Quinn said a lot of the defenses struggles have been opposed to being put in bad positions by an inept offense. To a degree, hes right, as the Gators allowed a 50-percent conversion rate the last two weeks. More concerning perhaps, the unit did not force a single turnover. Thats one of the things weve been disappointed in the last two weeks: not creating opportunities for the offense, Quinn said. But Florida has scored a combined 21 points in the two games, and Charlie Weis is also holding the offense accountable, saying putting up that few points simply wont get the job done. Obviously we cant be scoring 10 and 11 points and winning football games, he said. Florida has to play better in every facet, including special teams. And until that happens, there will be plenty of reasons why not. Contact Matt Watts at mwatts@alligator.org. THURSDAY, OCTOBER 13, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 19 GREG LUCAAlligator Staff Writer Who starts at quarterback? Thats been the No. 1 question not only in Gainesville but also in Auburn, Ala., where speculation has been rampant that freshman Kiehl Frazier could replace junior Barrett Trotter. But unlike the way UF coach Will Muschamp has handled his dilemma, Auburn head man Gene Chizik put the issue to rest early on. Barrett is our quarterback today, and he is our quarterback on Saturday, Chizik said. passes for 81 yards and an interception in Saturdays 38-14 loss at Arkansas. ingly split time with Frazier, who came to Auburn as the No. 5 quarterback in the country, according to Rivals.com. Frazier took 28 snaps against the Razorbacks and was just 2 of 4 with a pair of interceptions. But he ran the ball effectively, carrying 13 times for 54 yards and a touchdown while adding another dimension to Auburns already potent running game. We dont see it as a two-quarterback system, we see it as a changeup, Chizik said. Its really no more complicated than that. How much the Tigers use Frazier will be based on their matchup, Chizik said, putting the ball back in Muschamps court. While Floridas Jeff Driskel and Jacoby Brissett play a very similar style, Auburns two options are nearly polar opposites. That poses a challenge for Muschamp and defensive coordinator Dan Quinn, who have to prepare game plans to combat two very distinct signal-callers. Muschamp has one advantage: Auburn has already named its starter. That helps if the two quarterbacks are different, Muschamp said. When youre talking about two totally different, talented guys as far as doing different things, then yes, that poses some problems. But Trotter starting doesnt rule out the chance of Frazier changing gears and utilizing a number of unique formations, especially with Chizik and offensive coordinator Gus Malzahn at the helm. The Tigers can play offense at various tempos and often like to apply pressure with their quick-hitting, no-huddle attack. To prepare, the Gators have scrimmaged their defense against a unit with two huddles, giving the offense the preparation advantage it needs to simulate Auburns speed. That was a really important part, Quinn said. To understand, watch tape together and see how fast the action went and how fast you have to get back to the line of scrimmage. Contact Greg Luca at gluca@alligator.org.Two-quarterback situation not limited just to Florida WATTS, from page 17Muschamp wants one quarterback to emergecontain the edge. According to Quinn, Powell will still start against No. 24 Auburn on Saturday. Looking for a QB leader: Muschamp did not name a starting quarterback Wednesday morning, though he wants Jacoby Brissett or Jeff Driskel to establish himself as the starter going forward. Id love for one of them to really step up and play really well and go from there, Muschamp said. But, again, we will manage that as we roll through this season, and I couldnt think of anybodys better hands to be in than (those of offensive coor dinator) Charlie Weis. This is the second straight week Florida has been undecided about its starting quar terback midway through the week. Muschamp said after Saturdays loss that he chose Brissett on Wednesday night.
