Members of its lab-safety program inspect each lab annually to are up to safety codes and that lab managers are properly trained in safety procedures.

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 20, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 3 OCCUPY MO VEMENT MORGAN WATKINSAlligator Staff WriterOccupy Gainesville will take a stand at City Hall today, with protesters speaking during the citizen comment portion of the evening City Commission meeting to ask for permission to peacefully assemble on Bo Diddley Community Plaza. The protesters will petition city representatives to allow them to occupy the plaza overnight, according to an Occupy Gainesville news release. Movement supporters have submitted a request for a permit to continue their overnight occupation until Dec. 31, 2012, said Jeremiah Tattersall, a member of Occupy Gainesville and 2008 UF alumnus. He said he hasnt heard anything from the city government about it yet, but protesters are open to negotiation. Cassia Laham, a 21-year-old UF political science senior, will be there supporting the movement as she has since it began in Gainesville. The goal is to basically get [the city government] to support the Occupy Gainesville movement and the Occupy movement as a whole, she said. Nobodys hollering at anyone late at night. To be honest, I dont know why they would disapprove. Members of the movement have held an overnight presence by staying on the sidewalks around the plaza since Oct. 12. of their occupation, but it was good for only one day, Tattersall said. On the second night of the occupation, when they had no permit, four people were arrested, including Bo Diddleys son, Ellas Anthony McDaniel. Since then, there have been no arrests and a waning police presence, Tattersall said. Although the majority of protesters will be going to the commission meeting in the evening, a few will stay behind to continue the occupation of the plaza, which closes at 11 p.m. Protesters usually have until 11:30 p.m. to clear out of the area, after which they remain on surrounding sidewalks and even sleep there. Tattersall said he thinks there is a chance that the city commissioners and Mayor Craig Lowe will support their request. At least, he hopes they will. Its unorthodox, he said of the request. We know that, but we know that its possible. Lowe and the city commissioners couldnt be reached for comment by press time. Protesters to ask city for overnight permit PRSSA WAS NAMED OUTSTANDING CHAPTER.

Letters to the Editor THURSDAY, OCTOBER 20, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 7College education should still be respected This a response to Nicholas Butlers column Staying in school makes students unproductive. Should a college education be promoted as the only path to success? Certainly not, but that doesnt mean importance should not be placed on going to college and receiving a degree. shouldnt be an end goal to anyoccurs not only in lecture halls but also through the experiences of life that makes each of us our own individuals. The fact is that we are educating more people than we have positions to accommodate them with. K-12 education is still selling the unattainable ideal that you should go to school and get good grades, and this will result in receiving a good job. Like the American Dream, this is increasingly becoming a falsehood. A degree doesnt result in a successful career even in the sciences. Most skilled-labor positions in the U.S. are having wages driven down, and manufacturing jobs are leaving the country due to the exportation of jobs and the weakening of collective bargaining rights. All that being said, I disagree with the notion that college should be more restrictive by limiting many from the opportunity of attaining a degree. Butler makes a comparison to the 1960s when less than half of high school graduates attended college and how during those times it wasnt seen as a death sentence. Well, were not living in the 1960s. We live in a service-based and desegregated world far removed from the Second Great War. During that time, we had a economy that was based more on manufacturing where a person could expect to achieve a decent standard of living without a degree. All those jobs now, for the most part, are gone. College isnt seen as this elite thing anymore where only people of certain economic status, gender place. Slowly but surely more people than ever are being given the opportunity to seek an education. Honestly, I think the number of colleges or four-year universities should be contracted. There are too many institutions emulating the role of large four-year public and private universities. Not every school should be a university. This ideal is what is keeping people in debt and is essentially eroding the value of a college degree. Although there is an intrinsic value for a holistic education, economically it training and education. What many people also continually fail to realize is that you do not need a formal education to become knowledgeable of classical works of literature, philosophy, politics, etc. We should promote other options while not degrading the value of a college education. Eric Brown Reitz renovation would provide much-needed space As a member of smaller student organization on campus, the Ambassadors of Civility and Ethics, the need for meeting space is always present. Rooms on campus are booked quickly and often my organization is forced to plan programs and events at makeshift locations. After reading yesterdays article, I think expansion of the Union and student areas would not only give my organization more space to operate, but it would allow smaller student organizations like mine to be more visible on campus, thus increasing our impact and membership. It would allow organizations to better collaborate, increasing eftivity on campus. Looking at other universities, UF seems to have fallen behind in supporting the needs of todays student body when it comes to space where students can engage outside the classroom. An improved student union will make students more included in campus life and foster their development. I feel that an expansion and renovation of the Reitz is long overdue. Kycia Hosley UF sophomore T reported cases of AIDS in the United States. Fortunately, we have made leaps and bounds in terms of awareness, prevention and treatment for those living with this disease. Improvement is still needed all across the board, though. Stigmas, discrimination and myths still exist today. I believe that getting tested for HIV should be a routine blood test performed at the same time as all of those other labs that your doctor recommends. The Centers for Disease Control estimates that 1 in 5 people living with HIV is unaware of his or her infection. Please stop a second, and read that line again. Take it in pretty worrisome, wouldnt you agree? It is also estimated by the CDC that about half of all the 15 to 24 age range. Most of the people reading this article will fall into this age category. There is no doubt that UF has intelligent students, but just because we are educated, we should know how to prevent HIV/AIDS, right? Ask yourself have you ever had unprotected oral, anal or vaginal sex? If yes, you are automatically at risk. HIV symptoms can take a long time to appear. So, if you have been at risk, have you received an HIV test since then? Many people worry what others may think of them for getting an HIV test or may believe that they are in monogamous relationship, bring up the topic and go get tested together what is the harm in that? Others may simply not want to know, and it is a myshave unprotected vaginal, oral and/or anal sex. Please try not to worry what others may think, and consider getting tested now. Dont make excuses and procrastinate. Knowledge is power. There are other reasons why people do not know their free and receive condoms for free. Is time and location an issue? There are multiple off-site locations at varying hours of the day to get tested. Are you afraid of needles? If so, there is an oral test that is simple and just gently sweeps the inside of your cheek, and you are done. Please visit 313hiv.com for information where you can locate free testing, free condoms and all sorts of valuable information. Additionally, please mark your calendars for Dec. 1, which is World AIDS Day. Our campus will be having a lot of awareness events, screenings and resources available free to all students, faculty and staff. Bring yourself and your partner to get tested at the same time. Bring your roommates and friends. Recruit a random person you see at Turlington. Be informed, and get tested. Please spread the message, not HIV. Knowing your HIV status is extremely important and, above all, empowering. Lori Blanton is a health education and behavior graduate student at UF. Getting tested regularly for HIV is responsible, empoweringGuest columnLori BlantonSpeaking Out

The actor warms up his voice before any set of eyes is laid on him. He takes in the space, walks around the set in his worn-out black Chuck Taylors and transforms into his character for the evening. He lies on the drifts into a state of ease and awarecall. Andrew Bailes, a 28-year-old masing his last UF acting role as Inspector Goole in An Inspector Calls. Opening night is Oct. 21 at 7:30 in the Nadine McGuire Black Box Theatre. The play is about the inspector informing the Birlings, a troubled uppermiddle class family, that a lower-class, young woman from town committed when the inspector tells them they all had something to do with the womans death. Its really about class separation and the differences between the rich and the poor, and how that gap is through capitalism, Bailes said. Its actually relevant to today, which is so cool about it even though its kind of dusty. The production, written by J.B. Priestley in 1945, takes place on a single night in 1912 at the Birlings Victorian home in New England. Bailes said hes found his role challenging because he has to appear larger than life to present the inspector; however he sees himself in the role. I am kind of the same way, that I try to treat people as equally as he does and remind those that are more privileged that they shouldnt hold that much of a difference over the lower class, he said. While living in St. Augustine, Fla., to study English and theater arts as an undergraduate at Flagler College, Bailes worked on a ghost tour as a dead doctor in a Spanish military hospital, he said. Occasionally he will draw from the way the character spoke, its vocal cadence and presence for the inspector character. Its really nothing like Ive ever done before, he said. Theres an eerie quality about [the inspector], almost a ghostly quality about him. When the play ends, the inspector transforms the Birling family into a skeleton of its original self, Young said. Expect some thrills, some laughs and some mystery, he said. The audience can expect to see a chilling reminder of why people should treat each other with respect and the harsh consequences of not abiding by those considerations, Bailes said.

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 20, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 9 He Says She Says A relationship is a promise. Its a pledge to your partner that for as long as the two of you are together, he or she will be the only one youll have. For some, this thought of being locked down to one partner is just too much bear. even more on campus. Young, horny adults are suddenly thrown into a high-energy atmosphere where time-of-yourlife moments can be made any night of the week. While some couples coast through college unscathed, some give into the temptation and cheat. With beautiful people everywhere you look, a partyloving culture and new faces to meet every day, staying faithful to your partner is a miraculous feat. But is there any circumstance where cheating is acceptable?He Said, She Said: Is there a time when cheating is OK?There is no good excuse for cheating. No matter how innocent it may seem, it rarely ever is. And it doesnt matter how hard you try to cover it up; it always gets out. As someone who has been cheated on before, I can conmost detrimental thing that can happen to your relationship. The partner who is cheated on experiences the obvious emotions: heartache, betrayal and revenge. But most of the time, the partner who cheated is equally afseen many people that were so overcome with guilt and self-disgust that THEY end the relationship not the boyfriend or girlfriend he or she cheated on. Cheating causes a gap to form between the couple. Trust is gone, jealousy becomes rampant and the cheater gets put under a microscope. On top of all this is the feeling for weeks afterward of the elephant in the room. You both know it happened, but nobody wants to talk about it in fear of the argument that will ensue. Awkward. If I come across as a bit harsh, then you are exactly right. I dont joke around when it comes to cheating. The very presence of it suggests that there was something wrong with the If you seriously consider cheating on your boyfriend or girlfriend, its already too late. Your relationship took a wrong turn toward heartache a long time ago. JACOB ROMOSER As soon as I hear this question, my gut immediately screams a big, Hell no! But since I am trying to make an effort to be more open-minded, I decided to tiptoe behind my intuitions back and see if there was something better out there that could sway my opinion. The other day while waiting in line at the Starbucks at Library West, I struck up a conversation with a cutie, Joe. A 19-year-old freshman with an undeclared major, Joe gave the impression that hed be a great lets-not-get-serious person but an absolutely awful boyfriend. He was preppy, toned, sarcastic, ted the undeclared vibe. Being that Im much older and romantically taken, I decided to call Joe out on an observation Id made after standing behind him. Youve checked out EVERY GIRL who has walked into and out of this coffee shop, I said. You bet I have, he laughed. Do you Gainesville women realize how gor geous you all are? Joe had a point. As I looked around, I couldnt help but notice the variety of beautiful ladies. Then it hit me; maybe cheating is inevitable in certain scenarios. Sensing my clutch on monogamy begin to loosen, I asked Joe if he had a girlfriend. A girlfriend?! Theres no way I could only be with one girl right now, and I DEFINITELY dont want the rep as a cheater! Thats just wrong, man! he said. For a split second I loved Joe. His impulsive response just validated my traditional approach to relationships. Cheating is, as he so eloquently put, just wrong. It not only kills all semblance of trust between a couple, but it also indicates that there is something off in the relationship. If a strong temptation to cheat is on the table, then its a bad time to make a romantic commitment. Ladies and gentlemen, cheaters SUCK. Take a cue from Joe. Avoid breaking ones heart being single.

Elle Harder, a 20-year-old Spanish junior at UF, started tanning when she was 16. prom, she said. Although tanning at a young age can be dangerous, doing it at any age may run quite a high risk to your health. Certainly we have seen a bump in the incidents of melanoma, said UF graduate Dr. Terrence Cronin Jr. at Cronin Skin Cancer Center in Melbourne, Fla. Melanoma is the most serious form of skin cancer, but it can almost always be cured if caught in time, according to skincancer.org. It is caused by overexposure to ultraviolet A and B lights, like those found in tanning beds. There has been a particularly scary increase in melanoma cases among young women who use tanning beds, Cronin said. Its an epidemic, especially here in Florida. However, a local spray-tanning salon has seen an increase of customers this fall. We tend to be a lot busier, said Mandi Nazaro, 26, of Golden Gator Airbrush Tanning, located at 1219 W. University Ave. Students want to be tan for football games and sorority functions, so they come here. Cronin said though he does not recommend the use of tanning beds for cosmetic reasons, he does recommend spray tans. He said they cause no real harm to skin and can do wonders for those who want to appear tan. For a long time, people have thought it was a sexy, desirable look, and I think thats changing, he said. Im seeing people with paler, ivory skin, like Nicole Kidman and Gwyneth Paltrow, as signs of beauty. A motivating factor behind the decrease in the tanning fad among women may be the fear of premature aging. Avid tanning causes the skin to age prematurely, and people want to look as young as possible for as long as possible. He compared the tanning craze to smoking cigarettes. It is addictive and makes you feel good while youre doing it. Although it is damaging to your health, you continue to do it, but know you will pay for it down the road. you get kind of tan, you want to be Snooki tan. herself a tanaholic. She said that being tan makes her feel like she looks healthier. Luckily, eating and drinking certain foods and liquids can make you look just as healthy, or maybe even healthier than tanning alone, said GatorWell Health Promotion Services Health Promotion Specialist Shannon Delaney. Eating vegetables high in beta-carotene can give your skin that glow, too. We tend to think that tanning is the only way to get that healthy glow everyone wants, Delaney said. Knowing that eating a wide range of fruits and vegetables can make us more attractive sure is a good reason to start eating them more often. Foods including carrots and sweet potatoes integrate into our skin and give it that radiant glow. Delaney described a study conducted at the University of Bristol in England that showed people who ate vegetables had a more attractive glow than those who didnt. Because the fall weather tends to dry out skin, drinking eight to 10 glasses of water per day and consuming lots of healthy oils, like nuts and avocados, will also contribute to healthy, glowing skin. away from the tanning beds and reach for the self-tanning lotion or bronzer instead. Ways to bronze up without downing your health or youthful skin FIVE WAYS TO GET YOUR SUNLESS GLOW THIS FALL:1. Almonds, avocados and hazelnuts promote natural skin glow. Chow down!2. Pick up LOreal Sublime Glow, about $10, for a great bronzed look.3. Try Physicians Formula Pearls of Perfection Multi-Colored Bronzer, great for all skin tones.4. Get a spray tan. It is about $25 and lasts for up to two weeks.5. Try yoga or Pilates. They increase circulation and help clear pores, giving you radiant skin. SAPHIRA LAZARRE Avenue Writer At just 20 years old, Ross Campbell is a one-man bandstand who is making a name for himself in the musical genre he describes as psychedelic-folk. Psychedelic-folk is that an oxymoron? Can there be harmony between the two? One listener described Campbells music as the feeling you get from taking a walk in the woods. So what exactly is psychedelic-folk? It is a music genre that incorporates the melodic sounds of the 60s and 70s with the simple, music. Acoustics describe musical instruments whose sounds are not electrically enhanced or modsized audio is added to the mix. All music has a root in psychedelic-folk, Campbell said. The term psychedelic has just been hijacked by drugs and other negative connotations, but its really often misunderstood. This solo artist, a Tampa native and an international studies junior at UF, produces tunes under the name Silver Wren. debut on the music scene in March. Campbell was experimenting with acoustics and synthetic sounds when he decided it was time to start recording. With a studio in his bedroom, Campbell takes on all the responsibilities in musical arrangement hes the songwriter, disc jockey, musician and producer. Working on it yourself makes it fun, open and free, Campbell said. His musical past closely rehe has produced. Campbell has experience working with artists in rap, hip-hop and even some metal. Although he does favor folk, Campbell wanted to bring listeners music that would appeal to the masses. This idea sparked his interest in creating Silver Wren. I feel like so much can be done from combining genres, Campbell said. It makes music more relatable to others, and thats what I would like Silver Wren to do for people. I want my music to be a niche of comfort. Since its introduction, Silver Wren has caused buzz in the online music world. Bloggers from sites like Listen Before You Buy, Potholes in my Blog and Music Fans Mic describe the tracks as genius and appreciate its noisy-yet-beautiful aesthetics. Inviting the opportunity to reach a larger audience, Campentitled Window in the Wreath on Oct. 15. The album, or extended-play released on Housewarming Records. Listening to the EP [extended-play] is like a little trip, said Steven Salpeter, an English junior at UF. You feel like youve taken a walk in the woods and just came back. It soothes and relaxes. Owner of the music blogging site Flashlight Tag Music and actor in Chicago Tyler Andere, bells work. Im excited to see where he goes with this in the future, said Andere. He has a really unique sound and a sense of honesty is revealed in his work. Andere goes on to mention that Silver Wren has the potential to be a revival of the American indie band Bright Eyes known for its Billboard-topping singles Lua and Take It Easy (Love Nothing) in 2004. Campbell hopes to have a full album done by spring; however, the goal at hand is to get listeners in Gainesville familiar with his Whatever comes of it will be what it is, Campbell said. Im excited for the outcome either way. Campbell stressed that he is no professional in the music industry, so he does not plan on charging for Silver Wren.

MICHELLE KLUGAvenue Contributing WriterOne Gainesville man has planted the radio seed and is watching it grow. Bill Bryson, founder and manager of Grow Radio, Gainesvilles community Internet radio station, has seen his business triple in listeners during the past eight months, according to disc jockey and friend Dale Gunnoe. When he sees a need for something in the community, he makes it happen, Gunnoe said. Gainesvilles community radio stations is just one of the ways Bryson has brought music to the area. This is obvious in his long resume of notable music and business accomplishments, many of which laid the groundwork for the Gainesville music community as we know it. Bill has dedicated his entire adult life to bringing music to the people, said Chris Coates, Grow Radio DJ and friend of Bryson. Discovering Gainesvilles Need For Music Bryson spends his days managing Grow Radio, but his roots in the music business began at an early age. His musical interests were fueled by his experience living in England in the late 1970s and early 1980s, a and new wave music. I was exposed to a lot of music I never would have known in suburban Indianapolis and am grateful for the cultural exposure that shaped my later passion for music, Bryson said. During college at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Bryson worked as a promoter at a famous independent music club and a DJ at a student radio station. kind of college-driven indie music that drives his station today. While visiting a friend who owned a record store in Gainesville, Bryson noticed the towns need for a music venue. Using contacts he attained from the club and radio scene, Bryson opened the Covered Dish in Gainesville in 1992. The rock club soon became Gainesvilles premier live music destination, booking many up-and-coming bands. Bringing Live Music to Gainesville Somehow, he was able to do what no one else could do before and, frankly, since, get prominent indie and punk bands to make the trek down to Gainesville, a city they would otherwise skip to do the Tampa-Orlando-Jacksonville loop, Coates said. I met many of my musical heroes at Covered Dish. In 1994, Dave Matthews Band the Covered Dish. Green Day also played there before it was signed to a record label. Bill is too humble to cop to this, sic scene you can think of, Coates said. Im one to announce to the world when Ive met someone famous, but you would have to ask Bill directly if he knows someone, and then you get a story so cool you are left speechless. Musicians such as Jello Biafra of the Dead Kennedys and Jonathan Richman of The Modern Lovers are a few notable friends of Bryson. Richman has performed in-studio at Grow Radio, guest DJd and taken call-in questions from listeners. Mike Watt, a punk luminary most well-known for his band The Minutemen, has also joined Bill in-studio before gigs at Common Grounds. Bryson brought mass amounts of diverse, live music to Gainesville at the Covered Dish. The trend continued when the club changed ownership and became Common Grounds. Globetrotting in a Punk Rock Band In 1996, Bryson joined Causey Way, an alternative rock band that toured the U.S., Canada and Europe and consisted of notable members Rain and Summer Phoenix, sisters of actors Joaquin and River Phoenix. It was all a dream to me something I never expected to be a part of, Bryson said. The band was featured in the movie The Daddy of Rock n Roll, which portrayed Wesley Willis, a famous schizophrenic musician who toured with Causey Way in Canada. Causey Way stayed together until 2001. There was an explosion of per sonal band problems and we broke up, Bryson said. Creating Outlets for Gainesvilles Artists In 1994, Bryson started Put It On A Cracker record label to support Gainesville bands with no music outlet. He also co-founded Satellite Magazine in 2002 with friend and journalist Denise Trunk to promote art and culture in Gainesville. After experimenting with pirate radio and a small AM radio station, Bryson decided he wanted to start an Internet radio station a few years ago as a community hub for alternative music. There was always an audience for some other radio station, but no platform, Bryson said. The 2010 demise of Rock104, a largely student-run radio station, and The Buzzs format transition from alternative to modern rock, left a void of student-run rock radio stations. Creating Grow Radio sence of a community college radio station, playing diverse music. There is a huge amount of intellect in Gainesville. I think people are hungry for a radio station that has more to offer, Gunnoe added. Bryson said he wears many hats at Grow. He is there all the time, DJ Ben for DJs when they cant get there and does all the little things that need to be done. The volunteer-based radio station can be streamed online and also by iPhone application, enabling people to play it in their cars. In no other real situation could you program whatever music you like and run your show however you like, Markus said. It gives people an accessible platform to play their music with professional equipment. Bryson said he chose Internet radio because there are few regulations, low overhead and potential for a global audience. In addition to Grow Radio, Bryson also serves on the board of the Alachua Conservation Trust, a group dedicated to protecting historical infrastructures and natural resources in Gainesville. pany, Number 9 Productions, which umbrellas Grow Radio but was created to support diverse forms of art in Gainesville. Number 9 recently hosted a local visual arts show, which was a success and will be put on again in March. He doesnt like to own up to the glory, but hes the man who makes it all happen, Gunnoe said of Bryson. 12, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, OCTOBER 20, 2011Michelle Klug / Alligator Grow Radio founder Bill Bryson sits in his radio studio located in downtown Gainesville. Local man brings music to the people MAE BASIRATMANDAvenue WriterBassnectar stepped on the dubstep scene more than a decade ago, but only recently did the disc jockey begin wavering melodies and incessant bass that became the beats to college parties around the nation. Bassnectar (real name Lorin Ashton) is mostly known for his collaborations with other DJs and infusing his style with top-40 hits. Most recently, he performed to sold-out, large, hungry crowds at: Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, Coachella and Electric Daisy Carnival Vegas. With wavering bass, combining alarming sounds with pulsating melodies, his music is a total sensory experience. His use of fusing electronic and house music with heavy syncopated beats creates a spectrum of ing that keep fans coming back for more. Bassnectar will take his talents to SuperDre. Doors open at 7 p.m. General admission tickets are $30. Visit bassnectar.net for tickets. The Avenue got the opportunity to pick the DJs brain. Heres what he had to say. my entire life changed. Prior to that, I had been almost exclusively obsessed with death metal and had never danced before (lots of head banging though), and I spent that entire night dancing and meeting amazing people. The next day I decided that I wanted to spend the rest of my life bringing experiences like that to other people. I have always been in love with many different sounds and styles of music. My tastes are very eclectic, and I enjoy what happens when you combine unlikely extremes into new, strange, beautiful combinations. It is that spectrum of extremes that Divergent Spectrum is based on. College towns are special because they are basiwho are ready to rage. When I was in college, I spent a ridiculous amount of time organizing outdoor concerts and music events on campus. At one point, someone discov ered a secret stairwell in my dorm that went four stories high. My neighbors in the dorm made a trapdoor to it, and many months were spent throwing illegal parties inside of it. It was entirely out of hand. In 2046, I will be a maintenance man in an apartment complex, and I will collect Bonsai trees. One day a young boy will move into the apartment complex, and I will teach him karate, but I will do so in secret, paint the house. One day he will go on to be a great karate master, and I will stay in my underground dojo. I just want to keep moving forward and upward bringing music to this ever-growing and ever-changing community of people. One of my favorite sayings is, Best is better than newest, so I am not trying to change it up; Im just having fun riding this wild roller coaster to the next level. Dont follow anyone elses rules; just do what you love, as much as possible.Avenue sound check with the King of Dubstep: Bassnectar DJ performs Friday at the Alachua County Fairgrounds radio

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 20, 2011 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Poll ResultsAfter losing their third straight game, do you think the Gators are an improved team in 2011? Another ArrestWith seven players arrested this year, do you think coach Will Muschamps Florida Way is working? Vote online at alligatorSports. org. TOM GREEN and GREG LUCAAlligator Staff Writers Freshman cornerback Marcus Roberson, 19, was arrested last month and charged with underage possession of alcohol, a second-degree misdemeanor. The University Police Department arrested Roberson on Sept. 14, just two days after then-Flor ida linebacker Dee Finley was arrested for driving with a suspended license and resisting arrest. According to an Alachua County court records search, Roberson, who was 18 at the time of the ar rest, entered a written plea of not guilty on Sept. 28. A pre-trail conference is scheduled for Nov. 7. A team spokesman said coaches are aware of the arrest and that the issue has been handled internally. A highly touted freshman out of Fort Lauderdale St. Thomas Aquinas, Roberson has started all seven games at cornerback for the Gators this season. He is the seventh Florida player arrested, and eighth overall arrest, since Will Muschamp was named coach. Roberson is represented by attorney Huntley Johnson, who often handles cases involving UF athletes. Receivers struggling: Muschamp expressed concern Tuesday about Floridas lack of big plays and reliable options at the wide receiver position. We need more playmaking ability outside and more consistent play, Muschamp said. Through seven games, redshirt senior Deonte Thompson leads UF wideouts with 12 catches, good for only 152 yards. Sophomore Andre Debose is the leader in yards with 233, and the entire position group has combined for only two touchdowns both from Debose. Matt DeLancey is UFs strength coach for Olympic sports, and he has a special relationship with the athletes he trains. See Story, Page 19. Dana Burke / Alligator StaffFreshman cornerback Marcus Roberson was arrested on Sept. 14 on a charge of possession of alcohol by a person under 21 years of age. FLORIDA VOLLEYBALL TEAM EXTENDS WINNING STREAK TO SEVEN. BRYAN HOLTAlligator Writer Floridas goal against South Carolina on Wednesday night was very simple: go for the sweep. My concern was dont go past three sets because our players are just absolutely gassed, UF coach Mary Wise said. The No. 13 Gators (16-3, 9-1 Southeastern Conference) took care of their top priority, sweeping a Southeastern Conference opponent (25-13, 25-18, 2523) for the seventh straight game. as it has been all season. In the games opening set, UF registered a .717 to .000 advantage in hitting percentage. Junior middle blocker Betsy Smith continued her reign as the most accurate hitter in the SEC, registering 10 kills on 11 swings for a .909 hitting percentage. Maybe the most improved player in our program from last year to this year is Betsy Smith, Wise said. Its really fun for us as coaches to watch her. But it was a familiar face that continued the teams most impressive streak. For the 14th game in a row, senior outside hitter Kristy Jaeckel picked up double-digit kills. However, it was her powerful serving that ultimately made the biggest impact against the Gamecocks (10-10, 1-9 SEC). Jaeckel tied a career-high with seven service aces, including a resounding strike on match point.Gators beat Gamecocks in straight sets on road CB Roberson seventh player arrested this yearTELLING YOU W ATTS UPRewind, if you can, to this time last year. Florida was embroiled in a threegame losing streak. The mighty Gators had fallen from the perch of competing for national championships to the depths of needing help to contend in the Southeastern Conference East. Urban Meyer was probably wishing he had chosen to stay at home instead of enduring a season without his wunderkind, Tim Tebow. And everyone, and I mean everyone fans and media alike had zero faith in John Brantley. My, how things change. Now, the Gators are again on a threegame skid, but theres a big difference: The only hope to end that streak is the same quarterback we loved to hate even as recently as a few months ago. Never mind that guru Charlie Weis was coming to town, never mind that he was installing a pro-style offense that suited Brantleys abilities a poor performance in the spring game was all it took for people to once again call for Brantleys head, or, at least, his job. Now, those same fans are counting the days until Brantleys injured ankle is healed those same writers, people like Clay Travis from Outkickthecoverage.com, are calling Brantley one of the ten best offensive players in the SEC. Who could blame them? The last time anyone saw Brantley in action he was marching the Gators down defense, attempting to pull his team within striking distance before the break. Sure, he threw an interception that Alabamas Courtney Upshaw returned for a touchdown, but Brantley was proving to be a different player in that game. And thats what is so disappointing.

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 20, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 3 OCCUPY MoO VEMENT MORGAN WATKINSAlligator Staff WriterOccupy Gainesville will take a stand at City Hall today, with protesters speaking during the citizen comment portion of the evening City Commission meeting to ask for permission to peacefully assemble on Bo Diddley Community Plaza. The protesters will petition city representatives to allow them to occupy the plaza overnight, according to an Occupy Gainesville news release. Movement supporters have submitted a request for a permit to continue their overnight occupation until Dec. 31, 2012, said Jeremiah Tattersall, a member of Occupy Gainesville and 2008 UF alumnus. He said he hasnt heard anything from the city government about it yet, but protesters are open to negotiation. Cassia Laham, a 21-year-old UF political science senior, will be there supporting the movement as she has since it began in Gainesville. The goal is to basically get [the city government] to support the Occupy Gainesville movement and the Occupy movement as a whole, she said. Nobodys hollering at anyone late at night. To be honest, I dont know why they would disapprove. Members of the movement have held an overnight presence by staying on the sidewalks around the plaza since Oct. 12. of their occupation, but it was good for only one day, Tattersall said. On the second night of the occupation, when they had no permit, four people were arrested, including Bo Diddleys son, Ellas Anthony McDaniel. Since then, there have been no arrests and a waning police presence, Tattersall said. Although the majority of protesters will be going to the commission meeting in the evening, a few will stay behind to continue the occupation of the plaza, which closes at 11 p.m. Protesters usually have until 11:30 p.m. to clear out of the area, after which they remain on surrounding sidewalks and even sleep there. Tattersall said he thinks there is a chance that the city commissioners and Mayor Craig Lowe will support their request. At least, he hopes they will. Its unorthodox, he said of the request. We know that, but we know that its possible. Lowe and the city commissioners couldnt be reached for comment by press time.

Letters to the Editor THURSDAY, OCTOBER 20, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 7College education should still be respected This a response to Nicholas Butlers column Staying in school makes students unproductive. Should a college education be promoted as the only path to success? Certainly not, but that doesnt mean importance should not be placed on going to college and receiving a degree. shouldnt be an end goal to anyoccurs not only in lecture halls but also through the experiences of life that makes each of us our own individuals. The fact is that we are educating more people than we have positions to accommodate them with. K-12 education is still selling the unattainable ideal that you should go to school and get good grades, and this will result in receiving a good job. Like the American Dream, this is increasingly becoming a falsehood. A degree doesnt result in a successful career even in the sciences. Most skilled-labor positions in the U.S. are having wages driven down, and manufacturing jobs are leaving the country due to the exportation of jobs and the weakening of collective bargaining rights. All that being said, I disagree with the notion that college should be more restrictive by limiting many from the opportunity of attaining a degree. Butler makes a comparison to the 1960s when less than half of high school graduates attended college and how during those times it wasnt seen as a death sentence. Well, were not living in the 1960s. We live in a service-based and desegregated world far removed from the Second Great War. During that time, we had a economy that was based more on manufacturing where a person could expect to achieve a decent standard of living without a degree. All those jobs now, for the most part, are gone. College isnt seen as this elite thing anymore where only people of certain economic status, gender place. Slowly but surely more people than ever are being given the opportunity to seek an education. Honestly, I think the number of colleges or four-year universities should be contracted. There are too many institutions emulating the role of large four-year public and private universities. Not every school should be a university. This ideal is what is keeping people in debt and is essentially eroding the value of a college degree. Although there is an intrinsic value for a holistic education, economically it training and education. What many people also continually fail to realize is that you do not need a formal education to become knowledgeable of classical works of literature, philosophy, politics, etc. We should promote other options while not degrading the value of a college education. Eric Brown Reitz renovation would provide much-needed space As a member of smaller student organization on campus, the Ambassadors of Civility and Ethics, the need for meeting space is always present. Rooms on campus are booked quickly and often my organization is forced to plan programs and events at makeshift locations. After reading yesterdays article, I think expansion of the Union and student areas would not only give my organization more space to operate, but it would allow smaller student organizations like mine to be more visible on campus, thus increasing our impact and membership. It would allow organizations to better collaborate, increasing eftivity on campus. Looking at other universities, UF seems to have fallen behind in supporting the needs of todays student body when it comes to space where students can engage outside the classroom. An improved student union will make students more included in campus life and foster their development. I feel that an expansion and renovation of the Reitz is long overdue. Kycia Hosley UF sophomore T reported cases of AIDS in the United States. Fortunately, we have made leaps and bounds in terms of awareness, prevention and treatment for those living with this disease. Improvement is still needed all across the board, though. Stigmas, discrimination and myths still exist today. I believe that getting tested for HIV should be a routine blood test performed at the same time as all of those other labs that your doctor recommends. The Centers for Disease Control estimates that 1 in 5 people living with HIV is unaware of his or her infection. Please stop a second, and read that line again. Take it in pretty worrisome, wouldnt you agree? It is also estimated by the CDC that about half of all the 15 to 24 age range. Most of the people reading this article will fall into this age category. There is no doubt that UF has intelligent students, but just because we are educated, we should know how to prevent HIV/AIDS, right? Ask yourself have you ever had unprotected oral, anal or vaginal sex? If yes, you are automatically at risk. HIV symptoms can take a long time to appear. So, if you have been at risk, have you received an HIV test since then? Many people worry what others may think of them for getting an HIV test or may believe that they are in monogamous relationship, bring up the topic and go get tested together what is the harm in that? Others may simply not want to know, and it is a myshave unprotected vaginal, oral and/or anal sex. Please try not to worry what others may think, and consider getting tested now. Dont make excuses and procrastinate. Knowledge is power. There are other reasons why people do not know their free and receive condoms for free. Is time and location an issue? There are multiple off-site locations at varying hours of the day to get tested. Are you afraid of needles? If so, there is an oral test that is simple and just gently sweeps the inside of your cheek, and you are done. Please visit 313hiv.com for information where you can locate free testing, free condoms and all sorts of valuable information. Additionally, please mark your calendars for Dec. 1, which is World AIDS Day. Our campus will be having a lot of awareness events, screenings and resources available free to all students, faculty and staff. Bring yourself and your partner to get tested at the same time. Bring your roommates and friends. Recruit a random person you see at Turlington. Be informed, and get tested. Please spread the message, not HIV. Knowing your HIV status is extremely important and, above all, empowering. Lori Blanton is a health education and behavior graduate student at UF. Getting tested regularly for HIV is responsible, empoweringGuest columnLori BlantonSpeaking Out

The actor warms up his voice before any set of eyes is laid on him. He takes in the space, walks around the set in his worn-out black Chuck Taylors and transforms into his character for the evening. He lies on the drifts into a state of ease and awarecall. Andrew Bailes, a 28-year-old masing his last UF acting role as Inspector Goole in An Inspector Calls. Opening night is Oct. 21 at 7:30 in the Nadine McGuire Black Box Theatre. The play is about the inspector informing the Birlings, a troubled uppermiddle class family, that a lower-class, young woman from town committed when the inspector tells them they all had something to do with the womans death. Its really about class separation and the differences between the rich and the poor, and how that gap is through capitalism, Bailes said. Its actually relevant to today, which is so cool about it even though its kind of dusty. The production, written by J.B. Priestley in 1945, takes place on a single night in 1912 at the Birlings Victorian home in New England. Bailes said hes found his role challenging because he has to appear larger than life to present the inspector; however he sees himself in the role. I am kind of the same way, that I try to treat people as equally as he does and remind those that are more privileged that they shouldnt hold that much of a difference over the lower class, he said. While living in St. Augustine, Fla., to study English and theater arts as an undergraduate at Flagler College, Bailes worked on a ghost tour as a dead doctor in a Spanish military hospital, he said. Occasionally he will draw from the way the character spoke, its vocal cadence and presence for the inspector character. Its really nothing like Ive ever done before, he said. Theres an eerie quality about [the inspector], almost a ghostly quality about him. When the play ends, the inspector transforms the Birling family into a skeleton of its original self, Young said. Expect some thrills, some laughs and some mystery, he said. The audience can expect to see a chilling reminder of why people should treat each other with respect and the harsh consequences of not abiding by those considerations, Bailes said.

The partner who is cheated on experiences the obvious emotions: heartache, betrayal and revenge. But most of the time, the partner who cheated is equally afseen many people that were so overcome with guilt and self-disgust that THEY end the relationship not the boyfriend or girlfriend he or she cheated on. Cheating causes a gap to form between the couple. Trust is gone, jealousy becomes rampant and the cheater gets put under a microscope. On top of all this is the feeling for weeks afterward of the elephant in the room. You both know it happened, but nobody wants to talk about it in fear of the argument that will ensue. Awkward. If I come across as a bit harsh, then you are exactly right. I dont joke around when it comes to cheating. The very presence of it suggests that there was something wrong with the If you seriously consider cheating on your boyfriend or girlfriend, its already too late. Your relationship took a wrong turn toward heartache a long time ago. JACOB ROMOSER As soon as I hear this question, my gut immediately screams a big, Hell no! But since I am trying to make an effort to be more open-minded, I decided to tiptoe behind my intuitions back and see if there was something better out there that could sway my opinion. The other day while waiting in line at the Starbucks at Library West, I struck up a conversation with a cutie, Joe. A 19-year-old freshman with an undeclared major, Joe gave the impression that hed be a great lets-not-get-serious person but an absolutely awful boyfriend. He was preppy, toned, sarcastic, ted the undeclared vibe. Being that Im much older and romantically taken, I decided to call Joe out on an observation Id made after standing behind him. Youve checked out EVERY GIRL who has walked into and out of this coffee shop, I said. You bet I have, he laughed. Do you Gainesville women realize how gor geous you all are? Joe had a point. As I looked around, I couldnt help but notice the variety of beautiful ladies. Then it hit me; maybe cheating is inevitable in certain scenarios. Sensing my clutch on monogamy begin to loosen, I asked Joe if he had a girlfriend. A girlfriend?! Theres no way I could only be with one girl right now, and I DEFINITELY dont want the rep as a cheater! Thats just wrong, man! he said. For a split second I loved Joe. His impulsive response just validated my traditional approach to relationships. Cheating is, as he so eloquently put, just wrong. It not only kills all semblance of trust between a couple, but it also indicates that there is something off in the relationship. If a strong temptation to cheat is on the table, then its a bad time to make a romantic commitment. Ladies and gentlemen, cheaters SUCK. Take a cue from Joe. Avoid breaking ones heart being single.

10, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, OCTOBER 20, 2011 ARYANNA HARRELL Avenue Writer Fall is here, and its not going to be as easy to maintain that golden-goddess glow you worked oh-so-hard on this summer, especially for those in California. to use tanning beds was recently passed in the Golden State. Starting Jan. 1, those younger than 18, even with parental consent, will be banned from using tanning beds throughout the state, according to the Associated Press. Elle Harder, a 20-year-old Spanish junior at UF, started tanning when she was 16. prom, she said. Although tanning at a young age can be dangerous, doing it at any age may run quite a high risk to your health. Certainly we have seen a bump in the incidents of melanoma, said UF graduate Dr. Terrence Cronin Jr. at Cronin Skin Cancer Center in Melbourne, Fla. Melanoma is the most serious form of skin cancer, but it can almost always be cured if caught in time, according to skincancer.org. It is caused by overexposure to ultraviolet A and B lights, like those found in tanning beds. There has been a particularly scary increase in melanoma cases among young women who use tanning beds, Cronin said. Its an epidemic, especially here in Florida. However, a local spray-tanning salon has seen an increase of customers this fall. We tend to be a lot busier, said Mandi Nazaro, 26, of Golden Gator Airbrush Tanning, located at 1219 W. University Ave. Students want to be tan for football games and sorority functions, so they come here. Cronin said though he does not recommend the use of tanning beds for cosmetic reasons, he does recommend spray tans. He said they cause no real harm to skin and can do wonders for those who want to appear tan. For a long time, people have thought it was a sexy, desirable look, and I think thats changing, he said. Im seeing people with paler, ivory skin, like Nicole Kidman and Gwyneth Paltrow, as signs of beauty. A motivating factor behind the decrease in the tanning fad among women may be the fear of premature aging. Avid tanning causes the skin to age prematurely, and people want to look as young as possible for as long as possible. He compared the tanning craze to smoking cigarettes. It is addictive and makes you feel good while youre doing it. Although it is damaging to your health, you continue to do it, but know you will pay for it down the road. you get kind of tan, you want to be Snooki tan. herself a tanaholic. She said that being tan makes her feel like she looks healthier. Luckily, eating and drinking certain foods and liquids can make you look just as healthy, or maybe even healthier than tanning alone, said GatorWell Health Promotion Services Health Promotion Specialist Shannon Delaney. Eating vegetables high in beta-carotene can give your skin that glow, too. We tend to think that tanning is the only way to get that healthy glow everyone wants, Delaney said. Knowing that eating a wide range of fruits and vegetables can make us more attractive sure is a good reason to start eating them more often. Foods including carrots and sweet potatoes integrate into our skin and give it that radiant glow. Delaney described a study conducted at the University of Bristol in England that showed people who ate vegetables had a more attractive glow than those who didnt. Because the fall weather tends to dry out skin, drinking eight to 10 glasses of water per day and consuming lots of healthy oils, like nuts and avocados, will also contribute to healthy, glowing skin. away from the tanning beds and reach for the self-tanning lotion or bronzer instead. Ways to bronze up without downing your health or youthful skin FIVE WAYS TO GET YOUR SUNLESS GLOW THIS FALL:1. Almonds, avocados and hazelnuts promote natural skin glow. Chow down!2. Pick up LOreal Sublime Glow, about $10, for a great bronzed look.3. Try Physicians Formula Pearls of Perfection Multi-Colored Bronzer, great for all skin tones.4. Get a spray tan. It is about $25 and lasts for up to two weeks.5. Try yoga or Pilates. They increase circulation and help clear pores, giving you radiant skin. SAPHIRA LAZARRE Avenue Writer At just 20 years old, Ross Campbell is a one-man bandstand who is making a name for himself in the musical genre he describes as psychedelic-folk. Psychedelic-folk is that an oxymoron? Can there be harmony between the two? One listener described Campbells music as the feeling you get from taking a walk in the woods. So what exactly is psychedelic-folk? It is a music genre that incorporates the melodic sounds of the 60s and 70s with the simple, music. Acoustics describe musical instruments whose sounds are not electrically enhanced or modsized audio is added to the mix. All music has a root in psychedelic-folk, Campbell said. The term psychedelic has just been hijacked by drugs and other negative connotations, but its really often misunderstood. This solo artist, a Tampa native and an international studies junior at UF, produces tunes under the name Silver Wren. debut on the music scene in March. Campbell was experimenting with acoustics and synthetic sounds when he decided it was time to start recording. With a studio in his bedroom, Campbell takes on all the responsibilities in musical arrangement hes the songwriter, disc jockey, musician and producer. Working on it yourself makes it fun, open and free, Campbell said. His musical past closely rehe has produced. Campbell has experience working with artists in rap, hip-hop and even some metal. Although he does favor folk, Campbell wanted to bring listeners music that would appeal to the masses. This idea sparked his interest in creating Silver Wren. I feel like so much can be done from combining genres, Campbell said. It makes music more relatable to others, and thats what I would like Silver Wren to do for people. I want my music to be a niche of comfort. Since its introduction, Silver Wren has caused buzz in the online music world. Bloggers from sites like Listen Before You Buy, Potholes in my Blog and Music Fans Mic describe the tracks as genius and appreciate its noisy-yet-beautiful aesthetics. Inviting the opportunity to reach a larger audience, Campentitled Window in the Wreath on Oct. 15. The album, or extended-play released on Housewarming Records.

He has a really unique sound and a sense of honesty is revealed in his work. Andere goes on to mention that Silver Wren has the potential to be a revival of the American indie band Bright Eyes known for its Billboard-topping singles Lua and Take It Easy (Love Nothing) in 2004. Campbell hopes to have a full album done by spring; however, the goal at hand is to get listeners in Gainesville familiar with his Whatever comes of it will be what it is, Campbell said. Im excited for the outcome either way. Campbell stressed that he is no professional in the music industry, so he does not plan on charging for Silver Wren.

MICHELLE KLUGAvenue Contributing WriterOne Gainesville man has planted the radio seed and is watching it grow. Bill Bryson, founder and manager of Grow Radio, Gainesvilles community Internet radio station, has seen his business triple in listeners during the past eight months, according to disc jockey and friend Dale Gunnoe. When he sees a need for something in the community, he makes it happen, Gunnoe said. Gainesvilles community radio stations is just one of the ways Bryson has brought music to the area. This is obvious in his long resume of notable music and business accomplishments, many of which laid the groundwork for the Gainesville music community as we know it. Bill has dedicated his entire adult life to bringing music to the people, said Chris Coates, Grow Radio DJ and friend of Bryson. Discovering Gainesvilles Need For Music Bryson spends his days managing Grow Radio, but his roots in the music business began at an early age. His musical interests were fueled by his experience living in England in the late 1970s and early 1980s, a and new wave music. I was exposed to a lot of music I never would have known in suburban Indianapolis and am grateful for the cultural exposure that shaped my later passion for music, Bryson said. During college at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Bryson worked as a promoter at a famous independent music club and a DJ at a student radio station. kind of college-driven indie music that drives his station today. While visiting a friend who owned a record store in Gainesville, Bryson noticed the towns need for a music venue. Using contacts he attained from the club and radio scene, Bryson opened the Covered Dish in Gainesville in 1992. The rock club soon became Gainesvilles premier live music destination, booking many up-and-coming bands. Bringing Live Music to Gainesville Somehow, he was able to do what no one else could do before and, frankly, since, get prominent indie and punk bands to make the trek down to Gainesville, a city they would otherwise skip to do the Tampa-Orlando-Jacksonville loop, Coates said. I met many of my musical heroes at Covered Dish. In 1994, Dave Matthews Band the Covered Dish. Green Day also played there before it was signed to a record label. Bill is too humble to cop to this, sic scene you can think of, Coates said. Im one to announce to the world when Ive met someone famous, but you would have to ask Bill directly if he knows someone, and then you get a story so cool you are left speechless. Musicians such as Jello Biafra of the Dead Kennedys and Jonathan Richman of The Modern Lovers are a few notable friends of Bryson. Richman has performed in-studio at Grow Radio, guest DJd and taken call-in questions from listeners. Mike Watt, a punk luminary most well-known for his band The Minutemen, has also joined Bill in-studio before gigs at Common Grounds. Bryson brought mass amounts of diverse, live music to Gainesville at the Covered Dish. The trend continued when the club changed ownership and became Common Grounds. Globetrotting in a Punk Rock Band In 1996, Bryson joined Causey Way, an alternative rock band that toured the U.S., Canada and Europe and consisted of notable members Rain and Summer Phoenix, sisters of actors Joaquin and River Phoenix. It was all a dream to me something I never expected to be a part of, Bryson said. The band was featured in the movie The Daddy of Rock n Roll, which portrayed Wesley Willis, a famous schizophrenic musician who toured with Causey Way in Canada. Causey Way stayed together until 2001. There was an explosion of per sonal band problems and we broke up, Bryson said. Creating Outlets for Gainesvilles Artists In 1994, Bryson started Put It On A Cracker record label to support Gainesville bands with no music outlet. He also co-founded Satellite Magazine in 2002 with friend and journalist Denise Trunk to promote art and culture in Gainesville. After experimenting with pirate radio and a small AM radio station, Bryson decided he wanted to start an Internet radio station a few years ago as a community hub for alternative music. There was always an audience for some other radio station, but no platform, Bryson said. The 2010 demise of Rock104, a largely student-run radio station, and The Buzzs format transition from alternative to modern rock, left a void of student-run rock radio stations. Creating Grow Radio sence of a community college radio station, playing diverse music. There is a huge amount of intellect in Gainesville. I think people are hungry for a radio station that has more to offer, Gunnoe added. Bryson said he wears many hats at Grow. He is there all the time, DJ Ben for DJs when they cant get there and does all the little things that need to be done. The volunteer-based radio station can be streamed online and also by iPhone application, enabling people to play it in their cars. In no other real situation could you program whatever music you like and run your show however you like, Markus said. It gives people an accessible platform to play their music with professional equipment. Bryson said he chose Internet radio because there are few regulations, low overhead and potential for a global audience. In addition to Grow Radio, Bryson also serves on the board of the Alachua Conservation Trust, a group dedicated to protecting historical infrastructures and natural resources in Gainesville. pany, Number 9 Productions, which umbrellas Grow Radio but was created to support diverse forms of art in Gainesville. Number 9 recently hosted a local visual arts show, which was a success and will be put on again in March. He doesnt like to own up to the glory, but hes the man who makes it all happen, Gunnoe said of Bryson. 12, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, OCTOBER 20, 2011Michelle Klug / Alligator Grow Radio founder Bill Bryson sits in his radio studio located in downtown Gainesville. Local man brings music to the people MAE BASIRATMANDAvenue WriterBassnectar stepped on the dubstep scene more than a decade ago, but only recently did the disc jockey begin wavering melodies and incessant bass that became the beats to college parties around the nation. Bassnectar (real name Lorin Ashton) is mostly known for his collaborations with other DJs and infusing his style with top-40 hits. Most recently, he performed to sold-out, large, hungry crowds at: Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, Coachella and Electric Daisy Carnival Vegas. With wavering bass, combining alarming sounds with pulsating melodies, his music is a total sensory experience. His use of fusing electronic and house music with heavy syncopated beats creates a spectrum of ing that keep fans coming back for more. Bassnectar will take his talents to SuperDre. Doors open at 7 p.m. General admission tickets are $30. Visit bassnectar.net for tickets. The Avenue got the opportunity to pick the DJs brain. Heres what he had to say. my entire life changed. Prior to that, I had been almost exclusively obsessed with death metal and had never danced before (lots of head banging though), and I spent that entire night dancing and meeting amazing people. The next day I decided that I wanted to spend the rest of my life bringing experiences like that to other people. I have always been in love with many different sounds and styles of music. My tastes are very eclectic, and I enjoy what happens when you combine unlikely extremes into new, strange, beautiful combinations. It is that spectrum of extremes that Divergent Spectrum is based on. College towns are special because they are basiwho are ready to rage. When I was in college, I spent a ridiculous amount of time organizing outdoor concerts and music events on campus. At one point, someone discovered a secret stairwell in my dorm that went four stories high. My neighbors in the dorm made a trapdoor to it, and many months were spent throwing illegal parties inside of it. It was entirely out of hand. In 2046, I will be a maintenance man in an apartment complex, and I will collect Bonsai trees. One day a young boy will move into the apartment complex, and I will teach him karate, but I will do so in secret, paint the house. One day he will go on to be a great karate master, and I will stay in my underground dojo. I just want to keep moving forward and upward bringing music to this ever-growing and ever-changing community of people. One of my favorite sayings is, Best is better than newest, so I am not trying to change it up; Im just having fun riding this wild roller coaster to the next level. Dont follow anyone elses rules; just do what you love, as much as possible.Avenue sound check with the King of Dubstep: Bassnectar DJ performs Friday at the Alachua County Fairgrounds radio

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 20, 2011 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Poll ResultsAfter losing their third straight game, do you think the Gators are an improved team in 2011? Another ArrestWith seven players arrested this year, do you think coach Will Muschamps Florida Way is working? Vote online at alligatorSports. org. TOM GREEN and GREG LUCAAlligator Staff Writers Freshman cornerback Marcus Roberson, 19, was arrested last month and charged with underage possession of alcohol, a second-degree misdemeanor. The University Police Department arrested Roberson on Sept. 14, just two days after then-Flor ida linebacker Dee Finley was arrested for driving with a suspended license and resisting arrest. According to an Alachua County court records search, Roberson, who was 18 at the time of the ar rest, entered a written plea of not guilty on Sept. 28. A pre-trail conference is scheduled for Nov. 7. A team spokesman said coaches are aware of the arrest and that the issue has been handled internally. A highly touted freshman out of Fort Lauderdale St. Thomas Aquinas, Roberson has started all seven games at cornerback for the Gators this season. He is the seventh Florida player arrested, and eighth overall arrest, since Will Muschamp was named coach. Roberson is represented by attorney Huntley Johnson, who often handles cases involving UF athletes. Receivers struggling: Muschamp expressed concern Tuesday about Floridas lack of big plays and reliable options at the wide receiver position. We need more playmaking ability outside and more consistent play, Muschamp said. Through seven games, redshirt senior Deonte Thompson leads UF wideouts with 12 catches, good for only 152 yards. Sophomore Andre Debose is the leader in yards with 233, and the entire position group has combined for only two touchdowns both from Debose. Matt DeLancey is UFs strength coach for Olympic sports, and he has a special relationship with the athletes he trains. See Story, Page 19.

FLORIDA VOLLEYBALL TEAM EXTENDS WINNING STREAK TO SEVEN. BRYAN HOLTAlligator Writer Floridas goal against South Carolina on Wednesday night was very simple: go for the sweep. My concern was dont go past three sets because our players are just absolutely gassed, UF coach Mary Wise said. The No. 13 Gators (16-3, 9-1 Southeastern Conference) took care of their top priority, sweeping a Southeastern Conference opponent (25-13, 25-18, 2523) for the seventh straight game. as it has been all season. In the games opening set, UF registered a .717 to .000 advantage in hitting percentage. Junior middle blocker Betsy Smith continued her reign as the most accurate hitter in the SEC, registering 10 kills on 11 swings for a .909 hitting percentage. Maybe the most improved player in our program from last year to this year is Betsy Smith, Wise said. Its really fun for us as coaches to watch her. But it was a familiar face that continued the teams most impressive streak. For the 14th game in a row, senior outside hitter Kristy Jaeckel picked up double-digit kills. However, it was her powerful serving that ultimately made the biggest impact against the Gamecocks (10-10, 1-9 SEC). Jaeckel tied a career-high with seven service aces, including a resounding strike on match point.Gators beat Gamecocks in straight sets on road CB Roberson seventh player arrested this yearTELLING YOU Watts ATTS UPRewind, if you can, to this time last year. Florida was embroiled in a threegame losing streak. The mighty Gators had fallen from the perch of competing for national championships to the depths of needing help to contend in the Southeastern Conference East. Urban Meyer was probably wishing he had chosen to stay at home instead of enduring a season without his wunderkind, Tim Tebow. And everyone, and I mean everyone fans and media alike had zero faith in John Brantley. My, how things change. Now, the Gators are again on a threegame skid, but theres a big difference: The only hope to end that streak is the same quarterback we loved to hate even as recently as a few months ago. Never mind that guru Charlie Weis was coming to town, never mind that he was installing a pro-style offense that suited Brantleys abilities a poor performance in the spring game was all it took for people to once again call for Brantleys head, or, at least, his job. Now, those same fans are counting the days until Brantleys injured ankle is healed those same writers, people like Clay Travis from Outkickthecoverage.com, are calling Brantley one of the ten best offensive players in the SEC. Who could blame them? The last time anyone saw Brantley in action he was marching the Gators down defense, attempting to pull his team within striking distance before the break. Sure, he threw an interception that Alabamas Courtney Upshaw returned for a touchdown, but Brantley was proving to be a different player in that game. And thats what is so disappointing.

But Brantley exposed that Bama D from the opening snap. And he did it with the same pieces around him that have struggled to score points and move the ball the last two weeks. fourth in the SEC in average passing he kept the defense honest and kept an eighth man out of the box. run game has been nonexistent. The Jacoby Brissett and Jeff Driskel passed for just 228 combined yards in losses to LSU and Auburn. They scored 17 table question: What if? What if Brantley had not suffered the injury? What if he played against Auburn? won if only Brantley was under center Well never know the answer to that question. We should not even spend time wondering. What we need to do is give John Brantley the respect he has earned. but one thing is certain: The Gators are far better with Brantley than without him. And thats a statement no one or believing this time last year. Contact Matt Watts at mwatts@ alligator.org.
