ON CAMPUS ADRIANNA PAIDAS Alligator Contributing Writer Last week, Ashleigh Barraca found herself awkwardly laughing while standing alone in line at Starbucks in the Hub. The 20-year-old English junior noticed the TV on the wall directly in front of Starbucks showing the comedy Bridesmaids. They were playing the scene where the girls are trying on dresses and they all start vomiting and pooping because of the food they ate, Barraca said. I was surprised they were showing it, but it was nice to have a movie on while standing there. But starting this week, Barraca will have eight Resident TV movies shown in the Hub this semester will no longer be played. Resident TV is the resident-hall channel that is owned and operated by the UF Department of Housing and Residence Education. Until Tuesday, the department was unaware that the channel was being played in the Hub, said Amy Jorgensen, marketing coordinator for the housing department. Resident TV is only to be played in campus housing locations, Sharon Blansett, assistant to the associate vice president for student affairs, said in an email. The feed was misdirected, Blansett said. This has been corrected. Criminology and psychology freshman Brittany Sealey, 19, was bummed the Resident TV movies will no longer be shown in the Hub. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part One was playing while I was there the other day, and I got really excited it was on, Sealey said. Its lame they arent showing them here anymore.

In an exercise of the regulatory executive power, President Barack Obama announced Wednesday an initiative to reduce the amount of student loan debt now second to mortgages as the largest source of household debt. Under Obamas We Cant Wait campaign, a series of executive regulations that will be implemented without congressional authority, student loans took a high priority. The new program will go into effect in 2012 and will allow about 1.6 million students with government loans to cap their annual payments at 10 percent of their discretionary income as reported on their taxes. If the full loan has not been paid off after 20 years, the remaining balance will be dissolved. Currently, students can cap their payments at 15 percent of their income, and their loans will be forgiven after 25 years. White House domestic policy adviser Melody Barnes said these changes will not cost tax payers any additional money. There are about 450,000 graduates enrolled in the current income-based repayment program, a number Barnes said she hopes to see increase with the implemenObama introduces initiatives to help students manage loansPayments would cap off at 10 percent of incomeSEE NETFLIX, PAGE 5 SEE LOANS, PAGE 5 Blansett Defensive coordinator Dan Quinn said Wednesday that UF has made some changes to the playbook on defense, pg. 17.

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 27, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 3 THEY HAVE SMALLER CHANCE OF SECURING INTERVIEWS. VALERIA DELGADO Alligator Contributing WriterAnthony Castro, 19, worries participating in Pride Student Union and LGBT Affairs could hurt his chances of getting a job after graduation. The anthropology sophomore said he was concerned by the results of a Harvard study, released earlier this month, that suggest openly gay men face increased job discrimination. The study showed that job applicants who listed experience in a gay college organization were 40 percent less likely to secure a job inter view than those who didnt. Its ignorant that employers assume only gay people participate in these organizations, Castro said. But if putting my experience will hurt my chances of being hired, then my work becomes irrelevant. Harvard researcher Andras Tilcsik sent out pairs of counterfeit resumes to more than 1,700 job postings in California, Florida, Nevada, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Texas, according to American Journal of Sociologys website. The resume with a reference to the applicants sexuality had a 7.2 percent chance of receiving an interview. The other resume had an 11.5 percent chance. The research also found that gay applicants were least likely to receive an interview when the job posting called for someone assertive and aggressive. Terry Fleming, co-president of the Pride Community Center of North Central Florida, said discrimination in the workplace is unfortunate but real. Fleming said he was not surprised by the results of the study, which showed employers in the Southern and Midwestern states were more likely to make interview decisions based on sexuality than those in other states. Its not unusual to see this type of under lined discrimination in todays society, he said.Study shows gay men have JUSTIN JONESAlligator Contributing WriterIn the name of reducing UFs carbon footprint, students on the North Lawn on their bikes for UFs fourth-annual One Less Car Day. event to encourage the use of alternate transportation such as biking or riding the bus to class.

Area governments and students in Broward Hall, Springs Complex, Beaty Towers and Hume Hall have organized haunted houses to terrify their peers.

Another homicide was reported early Sunday morning when 30-year-old Artrel Dubose was shot in the head during a confrontation in a downtown parking garage. But overall, crime rates are still down in Gainesville, Valuri said. In 2010, crime rates dropped by 16.3 percent, according to a uniform crime report issued earlier this year by GPD.

These increases in tuition across the country have left the average graduate with $22,000 in loans, the same report stated. In an effort to streamline the repayment of those loans, Obama also announced an initiative that will allow student borrowers to consolidate multiple loans starting in January.

This includes a notice of loan disclosure that can sometimes be confusing for students, Wilder said. Wilder said he supports programs that are geared toward helping students but is concerned about the diminishing support for grant programs. For the 2011-2012 school year, Wilder said UF saw a total of $20 million cut from grants and scholarship programs. Any time you can help students manage their loan indebtedness, thats a great thing, he said. But by supporting grant programs, we could positively impact students lives without causing them to go further into debt.

Hands OffGovernment abuses eminent domainIn the U.S., the line between where your property rights end and the so-called public interest begin have always been a point of contention. In one instance, the local government of New London, Conn., created a development plan, which they hoped would bring jobs to the town. The city invoked the Fifth Amendment takings clause, often referred to as eminent domain, to transfer blighted property to some of the developers, one of which was the pharmaThe only problem was that people still lived in these blighted areas and some, like Susette Kelo, did not want to leave. Although the government offered just compensation for the property, the house had been in her family for years, with more of an intrinsic value for Kelo. Kelo took the case all the way to the Supreme Court, in Kelo v. City of New London, where she lost the suit. The jobs, tax revenue and development the city promised to its residents never Recently in Brooklyn, N.Y., residents complained that a Halloween decoration outside of a home, depicting a scarecrow hanging from a tree, was offensive. In response, City Councilman Charles Barron, D-Brooklyn, said, You aint speaking for this whole community because some people on this block came by and said it was offensive. They came and said it was offensive. Its not a cool decoration. Poor grammar aside, Barrons main argument is that the display offended the community, and that this reasoning was sufprivate property, which they did. What do the two incidents have in common? Both Councilman Barron and the City of New London seem to have the interests of their respective communities at heart. However, they seem to be suggesting that the rights and But, as in the Kelo v. City of New London case, this does not always seem to occur. What community interest was served when the City of Par ma, Ohio, told Wesley Wood that he could no longer grow and sell vegetables from his property because it is illegal to run a food business out of a yard? Wood was selling the vegetables he grew on his property to local residents who voluntarily purchased them. Like life and liberty, the ability to own, sell, use and dispose of private property is a fundamental human right. Private property serves mans life and his liberty, by giving him the ability to engage in trade, providing him with the goods and services he needs to live. But when the government becomes the ultimate authority of when, where, what and how we can use our private property, we lose both the right to our liberty and, subsequently, our life. Cains candidacy not worth supportingWeve run a campaign like nobodys ever seen. But then, Americas never seen a candidate like Herman Cain. We sure havent. At least, weve never seen a candidate willing to endorse an atrocious campaign ad featuring his campaigns chief of staff bumbling through lines like that, followed by said chief of staff randomly smoking a cigarette and said candidate smiling at the camera for a full 10 seconds. That chief of staff is Mark Block, and that candidate is someone youve probably heard of Herman Cain. And the video, if you havent seen it, is worth looking up on Youtube. Amid a laughable horse race for the GOP nomination, complete with plenty of distracting entertainment and embarrassing debate moments, Herman Cain has emerged as the front-runner in straw polls, garnering 25 percent of the vote in a recent CBS News/New York Times poll. And as Rick Perry, Ron Paul, Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum are quickly becoming forgotten in increasing numbers, its clear that at this point, only Cain and Mitt Romney remain as potential picks for the GOP Nomination. But heres the thing: Herman Cain is in no way a viable litical analyst who actually takes his chances of winning the nomination seriously. Much like Bachmann, Herman Cain is simply a fad. But unlike Bachmann, he doesnt seem to be going away. On the surface, it makes sense. Herman Cain has an everyman appeal. He speaks simply and to the point. He proin government spending. Hes even African American, for whatever thats worth. Yet while thousands of Americans around the nation are rallying against vague notions of corporate greed and big business running the government, Herman Cain is undoubtedly a pro-business candidate. Former CEO of Godfathers running point is his 9-9-9 tax plan, something that might have come straight out of a computer game. Its eerily similar to the 9-9-9 default tax settings of SimCity 4. But more importantly, its a agreement: Cains 9-9-9 plan would greatly decrease the tax rate of the wealthy at the expense of everyone else. Its goods hurts the middle-class a whole lot more than it hurts the rich. up in a uniting of the remaining 99 percent? Quite simply, its all the tea partys fault. Its a popular boogeyman for liberals, Ill admit it, but theres a reason for that. Its behind everything. Of course, thats hyperbole, but its not really that far from the truth. Herman Cains support stems from his tea party backing; the same tea party that promoted candidates like Michele Bachmann and Sarah Palin, despite their repeated political gaffes. Things have gotten downright comical. And I think its safely time to say that Herman Cain is a sideshow that we can no longer pretend to take seriously. When we hear his name, it should be accompanied with a begrudging chuckle. Because hey, I liked listening to Donald Trump pretend he would run. But Id like to think I also knew when to change the channel. Alex Guilmartin is a psychology and pre-law senior at UF. His column appears on Thursdays. Alex Guilmartinletters@alligator.org

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 27, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 7 In the midst of regional turmoil and over whelming pressure for change, Moroccos monarchy has seemed to be a model for the Arab world of pre-emptive and proactive government action to preserve stability. In the face of popular protests driven by the Feb. 20 youth movement, King Mohammed VI was able to defuse tensions rapidly and effectively. In his historic March 9 speech, he called for reform, announcing a comprehensive constitutional reform which is designed to upgrade and revamp state institutions. Within months, a new constitution had been written, presented and passed with a reported 98.5 percent approval rating in a referendum as much on Moroccos king and monarchy as on political changes. The institution of cosmetic constitutional reforms allowed for the defusing of popular tensions and the re-branding of the monar chy as reformist without making substantial changes to the current system. These dynamics between king and people in enacting reform all are illustrative of some of the fundamental challenges to genuine and lasting political change in the Middle East. The stabilizing combination of the traditional legitimacy of the monarchy, the personal charisma of the king and a careful balancing act between concession and repression provide a template of stability at the cost of individual liberty. Mohammed VI has continued to command a certain amount of popular and traditional authority. Having succeeded his unpopular father, Hassan II, in 1999, he has always presented himself as a modernizer and reformer. Portraying himself as King of the Poor, he has strongly condemned government corruption and economic inequality. In a June 17 speech leading up to the July 1 constitutional referendum, the King framed his objectives largely in terms of the crafting of more just and legitimate state, speaking of his commitment to constitutional reform as watershed event in the construction of a state based on the rule of law and on democratic institutions. However, the espousal of parliamentarian principles has yet to correlate with their execution, and the referendum itself seems to hurt its intended ends. Considering that turnout in the most recent parliamentary election was a paltry 37 percent, the reported 72 percent turnout rate seems surprising, to say the least. Among the worlds most enduring dictators, Mohammed VI still commands almost unchecked power. He is, by law and tradition, commander of the faithful and head of state, combining political, moral and religious authority. While slightly limiting the previously unchecked power of this Leviathan, the unelected and unaccountable king remains dominant with regard to executive power. The king appointed a small group of governvarious opposition movements, to revise the constitution, which he claimed was drawn up by Moroccans, for all Moroccans. In thus sticking to its authoritarian prerogatives, Aboubakr Jamai, a prominent Moroccan journalist and 2007 Niemann Felow at Har vard, sees the monarchy as having made the smart move by market[ing] the whole process as the benevolent king opposed by tiny, noisy, archical minority. Optimistically, one could argue that an enlightened monarchy could, by gradually building the institutional basis and allowing civil society to strengthen, nurture the development of a more stable and sustainable democracy that would bring greater good, politically and socially, to all Moroccans. The King could be considered the optimal political actor for the allowance of sustainable, peaceful and lasting change. However, a distinction must be made between the facade presented by external perceptions of the Moroccan regime and its reality of a backsliding of freedom in Morocco since Mohammed VI has come to power is more representative. By the Freedom Houses rating of political rights and civil respectively, on a scale of of one to seven. Particularly in recent years, freedom of the press in Morocco has experienced a steady, downward trend and can, in brief, be considered not free. The Press Law allows for prison terms for nosy journalists and government ownership of mediathe monarchy has a major stake in Moroccos main TV networks, giving it a high degree of control over domestic media. Particularly in recent years, freedom of the press in Morocco has experienced a steady, downward trend. When he was recently visiting Harvard for an event at the Ash Center, Moroccan jour nalist Aboubakr Jamai expressed his concern that the viability of the independent press of Morocco has been undercut by governments use of both its economic muscle and various legislative strategies to force independent newspapers to shut down. In 2000, his own Le Journal Hebdomadaire was banned after publishing an interview with Muhammad Abdelaziz, leader of the Polisario Front, a rebel movement for the independence of the Western Sahara since the 1970s. The status of the Western Sahara falls among the topics namely religion, the king and the monarchy that are, in practice, taboo. Today in Morocco, more so than in previous years, Jamai believes that journalism means militancy not being paid regularly or not being paid at all. Especially in recent months, journalists and bloggers covering demonstrations have experienced intimidation and even physical violence from police. As elsewhere in the Arab Spring, Facebook and other social media have provided a crucial means of organization and communication by creating a political space independent of government authority. Internet usage in Morocco jumped from 3.4 percent in 2003 to more than 32.2 percent as of 2009, breaking the governments monopoly on the dissemination of information. The ability to use online resources as a source of information and to publish online have allowed jour nalists to distance themselves from potential pressure. While technology cant necessarily be considered a causal factor, it does allow for complex and contentious dialogue that engages all aspects of society. Jamai believes that ultimately democracy means risks, means freeing voices, and, with the limited degree of freedom of expression permitted in Morocco, the Internet may be the best way of doing so. Although the implementation of genuine reform and the institution of true democratic processes are possible and could, per haps, be seen as inevitable in Morocco, change will not come without upending the status quo and risking its stability and security. Moroccos model of soft autocracy and benevolent monarchy do seem to contribute more tangibly and immediately to personal and societal good than unwhile the monarchical model may persist in the short term, it will certainly face fur ther challenges to its legitimacy as popular pressure continues to mount. The Feb. 20th movement continues to organize, and protests have been recently revived. As Jamai puts it, Democracy is a constant struggle, and were never done. Upcoming parliasince 2007, will test politicians responsiveness to popular pressures and current levels of political engagement.

The buildup to the breakup is stressful, but dealing with the pain and remorse afterward can be downright exhausting. When a relationship ends, the less time you spend dwelling on the past, the faster you can move on to the future. Kellen Denny, a junior electrical engineering student at UF, shared his experience in dealing with breakups. Kellen said after the drama of breaking up is done, he tends to surround himself with the opposite sex. a new girlfriend; hes just searching for some female affection. trying to be around people a lot, Kellen said. Because when Im with other people, I dont think about the breakup. If I were alone, it would be the only thing on my mind. Spending time with friends is important after a split. You need to keep the sense of companionship and happiness that you had during the relationship. Remember, moving on from an ex is like a bad Halloween costume the only thing you can do is admit it sucked and try again next year, or next week.

He Says She Says He Said, She Said: How do you get over someone you had feelings for?Preparing my liver for the approaching Flor ida/Georgia, Fest 10 and Halloween weekend insanity soon to abound, I decided to bar hop and ask strangers what their methods are for esty, and whats a better lube than alcohol? From what Ive gathered, when dealing with residual feelings from a breakup, its as though the Jekyll and Hyde dichotomy gets the best of everyone. Forcing us into an internal combat that divides our conscious between helpful and harmful, even those with the most ironclad or rather replace, feelings of companionship now eradicated. For those who opt for self-destruction, debauchery and casual sex often mask pangs of removed intimacy. Others expressed taking the newfound freedom as an excuse for self-improvement nurturing the ties with other people in their lives, getting back into shape and kicking ass at school and work. The truth is, I really dont know how to tackle this question. Obviously, its better to reap some kind of positive inspiration from the separation, but lets face the fact that none of us are superhuman. If you get drunk and have a one-nighter, you might feel like crap the next day, but I will say that this isnt necessarily a bad thing. My lovely readers, we only live once, and its are and what we want out of life, love and most importantly, ourselves. OK yes, being newly single requires adjustment, and depending on how much you cared for your ex, this can be completely draining. I hate to say it, but regardless of whether one falls into category indigent or inspired, the only remedy that really mends is out of our control: time. In the interim, if youre feeling nutty then talk to a counselor. Its their job. Although, I would like to close this week with little tidbit of wisdom: If you write an emotionally charged email to your ex, give yourself at least 24 hours before sending it. Learn from my mistake, and spare yourselves the embarrassment. It will make moving on much easier. KAY BEA SAPHIRA LAZARREAvenue Writer What started out as a carry-away for fountain drinks has morphed into a party staple. Nothing quite says cheers and, No, you cant know whats in my cup, its MY cup, like the waxy, red plastic goblet that is the Solo cup. This year, the Solo Cup Company is celebrating Years of appearance in Chicago in 1936. It was used at drive-in movies as a way to improve sanitation with convenience in mind. Today, that still holds true, and the par ty essential is still available in the iconic red. The color is infallible. Its synonymous with the phrase, Were having a good time. Lets face it, despite whatever beverage you may have 18-ounces of in that cup, you just dont want a picture with it to land on your employers Facebook newsfeed. Thats why weve become so good at tucking it behind our friends back when leaning in for that group photo. Cheese! You could even have milk in a Solo cup and a plate of cookies next to you but wouldnt dare be caught red-handed in a photo with it (no pun intended). But we cant forget the other Solo products. The Solo Cup Company has made its landmark in being one of the biggest distributors of single-use disposable products. From plastic tableware to cups, containers and plates, the Solo Cup Company meets the needs of just about any social gathering. Many tailgates, family picnics and barbeques were successful thanks to Solo. So this weekend, whether youre Saving the ta-tas, having fun at a Halloween bash or celebrating the Gators win over those Dawgs (we hope), raise a toast and praise the real life of the party the Solo cup.Cheers to a red-hot 75 years: the anniversary of the Solo cup Kellen Denny

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 27, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 9Carly Coleman/ AlligatorCross-dress: Frat Guy Ladies create their own TFM by sporting Sperry shoes, a red Solo cup, a button-down and khaki shorts. Carly Coleman/ AlligatorSocial Media: Twitter Tap into modern-day trends with this original Halloween costume. Take a display poster or white board and morph it into throughout the night. MAE BASIRATMAND Avenue Writer As a sober Lindsey Lohan once said in the movie Mean Girls, Halloween is the one night a year when a girl can dress up like a total slut, and no other girls can say anything about it. In college, Halloween is the time of the year when everyone can play someone theyre not and get away with it. Costumes, however, can rack up a lot of money, and the whole idea of originality fades. But this year, all you really need already exists in household items and some imagination. If all else fails, just put on all your gym clothes and winter coats at the same time, and say youre channeling your inner Gaga. The Group Costume Sometimes its hard to coordinate with so many people, but Halloween is just more fun when youre dressing up with friends. If you want to annoy people, run around Halloween night dressed up as the Angry Birds characters. This can be achieved by wearing masks depicting the different characters and taping feather tails to your shorts. For your eclectic group of friends, just go as the cast of Modern Family. Surely we all channel one person from the cast. For the group of girls who want to dress up as the Kardashians: simply put pillows in your jeans and make sure your black wig reaches it. Cross-dress This is the time of the year when crossdressing will help you pick up whomever you want to. This is very easy to do, as you can just ask to borrow clothes from your neighbors who live downstairs. Use it as an excuse to come in. Ladies should dress up as frat guys. Get out the Sperry shoes, khaki shorts, button-down shirts and dont forget a red Solo cup. Guys can dress up like girls by wearing bows in their hair, a Vera Bradley backpack and a sundress (if you want to take it to an extreme). Dont forget to throw up those sorority letters. Social Media Be Facebook or Twitter. Take a display throughout the night. Make sure you have people write on your wall with a Sharpie. If you want to be Twitter, just do the same as Facebook, but make sure you tweet every time you see something that seems tweet-worthy. You can also use a white board to create and erase tweets throughout the night. Dont forget a hash tag! DIY: Cheap, easy ways to craft impressive, original costumes halloween Carly Coleman/ AlligatorThe Group Costume: The Kardashians nate with your costumes by dressing up as the Kardashians. Based on your personalities, choose who gets to be Kourtney, Khloe and Kim. Dont forget to put a pillow in your pants to create those famous backsides.

10, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, OCTOBER 27, 2011 MAE BASIRATMANDAvenue WriterIt would be foolish to condemn college students for drinking. After all, if its a football weekend, you know inebriation is going to be a mass event. Yet, consuming glass after glass of drinks is not only detrimental to your wallet but to your health, too. We all know the negative effects of alcohol (come on, were required to take a quiz on it as a freshman), but what drink options are better? Dont discount working out for hours at Southwest Recreation Center and meticulously watching what you eat just to blow it on chugging sessions at tailgates. Not to mention, the inevitable, dreaded hangover will come after a night of downing shots with your buddies. Next time you plan on going out, think of these quick tips and alternatives to save yourself the nausea and to Thanksgiving rolls around. The higher the proof of the alcohol, the more calories it contains. For example, 80-proof vodka has 64 calories versus 100-proof vodka, which has 82 calories. Avoid sugary cocktails, such as those with syrup. These add calories and make you more thirsty. Use mixers such as club soda, water or low-calorie fruit juices.The fewer items mixed into your drink, the less calories. Opt for sparkling water or simply use a lemon or lime wedge to add some taste. If you do need a sweetener, use a low-calorie one such as Splenda. Dont be fooled by light beer. If you plan on drinking more beer because it has less calories, think again. Drinking more light beer can be worse than just drinking regular beer, which has the full taste. Give yourself a cap by the end of the night. Setting limits is key to making sure you dont go overboard. Setting such limits will also help you know how much money youll spend and how much to expect youll be drinking. The Avenues compiled some healthy drink alternatives for your boozing, so you can prepare properly for the weekends festivities. Instead of downing high-calorie drinks, have to think twice before ordering these healthy, yet refreshing and delicious, choices. Planning to chug away this weekend? Dark Rum and Diet Coke -1 shot of rum, a splash of diet coke Vodka Water -1 shot of vodka, mixed with water, squeeze a Glass of Wine -5 ounces of any red or white wine Mojito Cosmo -1 ounces of mint vodka, 2 ounces of cranberry juice, ounce of lime juice Low-Cal Mimosa -2 ounces of low-calorie orange juice, 3 ounces of champagne Tequila on the Rocks -1 shots of Tequila, squeeze lemon and lime, ice cubes Gin and Tonic -1 ounces of gin, 5 ounces of tonic water Drink Recipes

12, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, OCTOBER 27, 2011Courtesy to the Alligator Chuckles the Clown taunts unsuspecting travelers through the haunted trail at Eerie Acres. DIANA LOPEZAvenue WriterSwaying blue lights illuminate the winding, wooded path you walk through, while actors hide in the brush, waiting to jump out from the darkness. The path leads you through a sawmill town cursed by a voodoo priestess. Chuckles the Clown, Mrs. Slaughter, the Butcher and the chainsaw-wielding Virgil roam through the woods waiting for passers-by to haunt. The haunted trail at Eerie Acres Haunted Attraction offers guests a chance to become better acquainted through a 9-acre corn maze or enjoy a hayride under starry skies. The event will run this Friday and Satur Fla. Susan Watson, creator of the event, said this has been something she has always wanted to do. Watson used to put on scare trails for friends and family before she decided to turn it into a public event. She runs it with her husband, Phillip, and said this is Eerie Acres second year running. Chris Palmer plays a deranged hillbilly on the trail, looking for food for his cannibalistic mother. Palmer, information technology specialist at the College of Pharmacy at the University of Florida, said that peoples true colors really come out on the trail. I had a lady throw her purse at me, Palmer said. Addison Mertz, lab technician for the State of Florida, plays Slugger the Clown and is new to Eerie Acres this year. He said he has already made a 9-year-old cry. Mertz also said he enjoys the leniency of his character because he gets to be creative. I give them the basics of a character or scenario and they run with it, developing the individuality of the character or scene, then bring it to life, Watson said. On the website, there is a full-length story to accompany the theme of the haunted trail in the perspective of a writer who goes to investigate the mysteries of the town. You discover her fate at the end of the trail. The half-mile trail takes about 20 minutes to complete. All guests are encouraged to wear closed toed shoes and children younger than the age of 13 are to be accompanied by an adult. The maze, which is new to Eerie Acres this year, is cut in the shape of a grim reaper. There are maps, riddles and clues inside the maze to assist guests. Curtis Perry, plumbing contractor and parent, said the event is a cheap and safe way to entertain the kids. This year, he brought along his daughter Darby, 13. She said she will not be walking the haunted trail this Gregg Watson, cousin to the family, drives the tractors for the hayrides and said each trip takes about 40 people. The hayride is three-quarters of a mile long and takes about 20 minutes to complete. Children younger than the age of 5 have free admission. For all others, the entrance to the hayride is $3, the maze $7 and the trail $15. Guests may also purchase an all-inclusive package for $20, which allows admission for all three events. Group discounts are available for groups of 10 or more. Cash is only accepted at the gate, although online ticketing is available. on site to assist guests as well.

The third-annual Rogers Farm Corn Maze, 3831 NW 156th Ave., is now open, and it offers the perfect mix of fright and fall. Heres what to expect. 1. It IS scary. Dont be fooled. Just because the maze is family-friendly during the day doesnt mean it cant deliver at night. Oh yeah, expect to be scared, said Lar ry Rogers, owner of Rogers Farm. We got a couple chain saws out there, some scary suits and masks. 2. You will get lost. With 10 acres of corn, its almost impossible to avoid. But whats a night at a corn maze without about an hour or two of wandering around scared, cold and lost? So make sure you gather around your favorite group of people and wander through the maze. It could take you a while. The maze was scary, but it was a lot of fun. We all got lost for quite a while, Kjer stine Payne, a 19-year-old general business studies major, said of the maze. 3. The spook trail. This is a special feature of the maze that runs through the woods located on the farm. But keep an eye out; the trail isnt your aver age hiking root. We got a few things out in the spook trail that work pretty well, Rogers commented. 4. Not too much Paranormal Activity. We try to scare, but it is more friendly scare. We arent out there grabbing people, Rogers said. No Halloween Horror Nights, this family-owned and operated maze is a nod to the nostalgic days where fear factors were as simple as spooky ghosts and scarecrows. 5. While you are on the farm make sure to pick up your Halloween essentials and Pumpkins and tractor pulled hayrides are available. Rogers Corn Maze will be open until Nov. 13. The haunted corn maze comes alive at 8 p.m. and goes until midnight Friday and Saturday. The costs for the corn maze is $8. For more information, visit rogers-farm. com.

Hunter was a senior at Buford (Ga.) High in 2007. I know a lot of people say they dont like it; but me, as a fan, I kinda liked it, he said. I was getting recruited and was like, Thats something new. It is what it is. Its a great football game, great rivalry, and I love it. Demps unrestrained: Muschamp said running back Jeff Demps is at top speed during practice this week. Demps (ankle) missed the game against Auburn, and in the LSU and Alabama games he carried the four yards. The senior gained 320 yards and scored four touchdowns four games. Contact Tyler Jett at tjett@ alligator.org. THURSDAY, OCTOBER 27, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 19 Alligator File PhotoUGA quarterback Aaron Murray has thrown for 1,653 yards and 16 touchdowns, and he ranks 18th nationally in yards per attempt. Murray second-leading passer in SECThats where our conversations are going. For Georgia to claim just its fourth win in the series in the last 21 years, Murray will have to challenge a Florida secondary that has been largely untested this season. During UFs three-game losing streak, opponents have passed only 55 times compared to 135 runs, but the defense has still given up a handful of big passing plays. Testing Floridas defensive backs could prove easy for a more mature Murray, who ranks second in the Southeastern Confer ence in passing with 236.1 yards per game. For the season, Murray has thrown for 1,653 yards and 16 touchdowns. He ranks third in the confer hind only LSUs Jarrett Lee and Alabamas A.J. McCarron. He is also second in the conference and 18th nationally among qualifying passers in yards per attempt with 8.3. Youre going to get 10 to 12 shots in the game where theyre ly, and you have to defend those balls, Florida coach Will Muschamp said Monday. Theres no question that this game will be a little different from the ones weve seen in the last two weeks especially, as far as what people are trying to do Contact Tom Green at tgreen@ alligator.org. GEOR GIA, from page 17 FOOTBALL, from page 17Demps back to top speed in practice Four-star WR commit: UF searching for identityIt affects (my commitment), but not as much. I just look at it as Why are we losing games? We should win. I love the new offense, (but) Florida needs bigger backs I want to come in and help the Gators win. I look at it as a rebuilding year for any team. Wide receiver commit Latroy Pittman of Citra North Marion High committed on Aug. 18, 2010. He was a bit surprised by the Phillips news, but said the losing streak really doesnt affect me much. Every team has its run and their rough seasons. Just take it for what it is: new coaching staff, kind of a young team looking for its identity. Just playing more assignment football, doing more of the little things right (are keys), he said. Melbourne Holy Trinitys Marcus Maye, a safety commit, was also surprised by Phillips move, but says that as far as his commitment, he is still in, 100 percent. Maye, who injured his foot earlier this month, said one thing is on his mind when watching the struggling Gators: Make them better. Oral commitments are non-binding until a national letter of intent is signed on or after National Signing Day on Feb. 1, 2012. RECRUIT, from page 17 UF R ecruiting

20, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, OCTOBER 27, 2011 THE RALLY Greg: John Brantley is back! Signal the trumpets and ring the bells, Floridas senior quarterback (and savior) has returned. Not so fast. Regardless of who is under center, the Gators have a ton of issues to get ironed out. The last three games, Floridas offensive line has surrendered nine sacks and paved the way for only 64.7 rushing yards per contest. The defense has given up 206.3 yards per game on the ground in the three losses, down from the 61 mark that was No. 5 nationally after four weeks. Even the pass defense has fallen off, giving up 8.7 yards per attempt in October after holding opponents to 4.7 yards On special teams, Florida couldnt even catch a punt against Auburn. Matt: Didnt you hear Will Muschamp on team a humongous psychological boost! Thats all the Gators need. Stop it with all these stats and facts and logic, Greg. All that matters is how Florida approaches this game mentally. Plus, that boost isnt limited to just the offense. Brantley playing against Georgia is going to help the defense, too! Omar Hunter even said so. We feed off of Brantley. Having your starting quarterback back, that makes you feel good. Were gonna play hard for Brantley. Greg: A couple tackles might be nice. Besides, UFs players have shown that what they say isnt always accurate. Although he admitted the Gators have focused on tackling aggressively and with up a period of practice each day, Sharrif Floyd said tackling isnt a problem or something that wasnt where it needed to be. Wrong. Those pesky stats and facts and logic show Auburn, LSU and Alabama pounding Florida with dominating rushing attacks. Michael Dyer, Spencer Ware and Trent Richardson all had some success on the that same downhill, power-running mold. I dont think Brantley plans to trot out on defense, so Im not sure his presence will help that a ton. That is, unless this psychological boost includes some kind of psychic, leg-paralyzing mind tackling. Matt: Tackling, schmackling. The Gators didnt lose all those games because they couldnt wrap up. They lost them because they didnt have Brantley. Duh. UFs gunslinger may even be the best quarterback in the state, including the NFL teams. The difference hes going to make by returning is immeasurable: Quinton Dunbar is going to be relevant. Deonte Thompson will be one game closer to getting that championship, man. And Jordan Reed may even catch a chest-high throw without leaping to the moon. With Brantley back, the sky really is the limit. You saw what he did against Alabama. over him. Stats are for losers. All Johnny does is win. If you dont see yet, you will. Just wait. Greg: Im a little jarred by the use of Branta second to regroup. This is the same quarterback who was benched so a pair of tight ends could take snaps last season. A year doesnt change all that much. Even if Brantley has improved, the Gators would need Aaron Rodgers-level talent to make something out of this hodgepodge of wide receivers. If you add all of their stats together, their 646 yards still rank behind the NCAAs top 26 individual wideouts. I dont see a quarterback who threw more picks than touchdowns last year saving the season with such a dreary supporting cast. Matt: OK, before we get a ton (read: three) of emails and comments from incredulous fans who cant read between the lines, let me be frank: My entire stance has been sarcasm. Of course, Brantleys return doesnt mean that much. The Gators have plenty of problems that the return of one slightly above-avFans need to realize this and gain some perspective.

ON CAMPUS ADRIANNA PAIDAS Alligator Contributing Writer Last week, Ashleigh Barraca found herself awkwardly laughing while standing alone in line at Starbucks in the Hub. The 20-year-old English junior noticed the TV on the wall directly in front of Starbucks showing the comedy Bridesmaids. They were playing the scene where the girls are trying on dresses and they all start vomiting and pooping because of the food they ate, Barraca said. I was surprised they were showing it, but it was nice to have a movie on while standing there. But starting this week, Barraca will have eight Resident TV movies shown in the Hub this semester will no longer be played. Resident TV is the resident-hall channel that is owned and operated by the UF Department of Housing and Residence Education. Until Tuesday, the department was unaware that the channel was being played in the Hub, said Amy Jorgensen, marketing coordinator for the housing department. Resident TV is only to be played in campus housing locations, Sharon Blansett, assistant to the associate vice president for student affairs, said in an email. The feed was misdirected, Blansett said. This has been corrected. Criminology and psychology freshman Brittany Sealey, 19, was bummed the Resident TV movies will no longer be shown in the Hub.

In an exercise of the regulatory executive power, President Barack Obama announced Wednesday an initiative to reduce the amount of student loan debt now second to mortgages as the largest source of household debt. Under Obamas We Cant Wait campaign, a series of executive regulations that will be implemented without congressional authority, student loans took a high priority. The new program will go into effect in 2012 and will allow about 1.6 million students with government loans to cap their annual payments at 10 percent of their discretionary income as reported on their taxes. If the full loan has not been paid off after 20 years, the remaining balance will be dissolved. Currently, students can cap their payments at 15 percent of their income, and their loans will be forgiven after 25 years. White House domestic policy adviser Melody Barnes said these changes will not cost tax payers any additional money.

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 27, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 3 THEY HAVE SMALLER CHANCE OF SECURING INTERVIEWS. VALERIA DELGADO Alligator Contributing WriterAnthony Castro, 19, worries participating in Pride Student Union and LGBT Affairs could hurt his chances of getting a job after graduation. The anthropology sophomore said he was concerned by the results of a Harvard study, released earlier this month, that suggest openly gay men face increased job discrimination. The study showed that job applicants who listed experience in a gay college organization were 40 percent less likely to secure a job inter view than those who didnt. Its ignorant that employers assume only gay people participate in these organizations, Castro said. But if putting my experience will hurt my chances of being hired, then my work becomes irrelevant. Harvard researcher Andras Tilcsik sent out pairs of counterfeit resumes to more than 1,700 job postings in California, Florida, Nevada, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Texas, according to American Journal of Sociologys website. The resume with a reference to the applicants sexuality had a 7.2 percent chance of receiving an interview. The other resume had an 11.5 percent chance. The research also found that gay applicants were least likely to receive an interview when the job posting called for someone assertive and aggressive. Terry Fleming, co-president of the Pride Community Center of North Central Florida, said discrimination in the workplace is unfortunate but real. Fleming said he was not surprised by the results of the study, which showed employers in the Southern and Midwestern states were more likely to make interview decisions based on sexuality than those in other states.

Hands OffGovernment abuses eminent domainIn the U.S., the line between where your property rights end and the so-called public interest begin have always been a point of contention. In one instance, the local government of New London, Conn., created a development plan, which they hoped would bring jobs to the town. The city invoked the Fifth Amendment takings clause, often referred to as eminent domain, to transfer blighted property to some of the developers, one of which was the pharmaThe only problem was that people still lived in these blighted areas and some, like Susette Kelo, did not want to leave. Although the government offered just compensation for the property, the house had been in her family for years, with more of an intrinsic value for Kelo. Kelo took the case all the way to the Supreme Court, in Kelo v. City of New London, where she lost the suit. The jobs, tax revenue and development the city promised to its residents never Recently in Brooklyn, N.Y., residents complained that a Halloween decoration outside of a home, depicting a scarecrow hanging from a tree, was offensive. In response, City Councilman Charles Barron, D-Brooklyn, said, You aint speaking for this whole community because some people on this block came by and said it was offensive. They came and said it was offensive. Its not a cool decoration. Poor grammar aside, Barrons main argument is that the display offended the community, and that this reasoning was sufprivate property, which they did. What do the two incidents have in common? Both Councilman Barron and the City of New London seem to have the interests of their respective communities at heart. However, they seem to be suggesting that the rights and But, as in the Kelo v. City of New London case, this does not always seem to occur. What community interest was served when the City of Par ma, Ohio, told Wesley Wood that he could no longer grow and sell vegetables from his property because it is illegal to run a food business out of a yard? Wood was selling the vegetables he grew on his property to local residents who voluntarily purchased them. Like life and liberty, the ability to own, sell, use and dispose of private property is a fundamental human right. Private property serves mans life and his liberty, by giving him the ability to engage in trade, providing him with the goods and services he needs to live. But when the government becomes the ultimate authority of when, where, what and how we can use our private property, we lose both the right to our liberty and, subsequently, our life. Cains candidacy not worth supportingWeve run a campaign like nobodys ever seen. But then, Americas never seen a candidate like Herman Cain. We sure havent. At least, weve never seen a candidate willing to endorse an atrocious campaign ad featuring his campaigns chief of staff bumbling through lines like that, followed by said chief of staff randomly smoking a cigarette and said candidate smiling at the camera for a full 10 seconds. That chief of staff is Mark Block, and that candidate is someone youve probably heard of Herman Cain. And the video, if you havent seen it, is worth looking up on Youtube. Amid a laughable horse race for the GOP nomination, complete with plenty of distracting entertainment and embarrassing debate moments, Herman Cain has emerged as the front-runner in straw polls, garnering 25 percent of the vote in a recent CBS News/New York Times poll. And as Rick Perry, Ron Paul, Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum are quickly becoming forgotten in increasing numbers, its clear that at this point, only Cain and Mitt Romney remain as potential picks for the GOP Nomination. But heres the thing: Herman Cain is in no way a viable litical analyst who actually takes his chances of winning the nomination seriously. Much like Bachmann, Herman Cain is simply a fad. But unlike Bachmann, he doesnt seem to be going away. On the surface, it makes sense. Herman Cain has an everyman appeal. He speaks simply and to the point. He proin government spending. Hes even African American, for whatever thats worth. Yet while thousands of Americans around the nation are rallying against vague notions of corporate greed and big business running the government, Herman Cain is undoubtedly a pro-business candidate. Former CEO of Godfathers running point is his 9-9-9 tax plan, something that might have come straight out of a computer game. Its eerily similar to the 9-9-9 default tax settings of SimCity 4. But more importantly, its a agreement: Cains 9-9-9 plan would greatly decrease the tax rate of the wealthy at the expense of everyone else. Its goods hurts the middle-class a whole lot more than it hurts the rich. up in a uniting of the remaining 99 percent? Quite simply, its all the tea partys fault. Its a popular boogeyman for liberals, Ill admit it, but theres a reason for that. Its behind everything. Of course, thats hyperbole, but its not really that far from the truth. Herman Cains support stems from his tea party backing; the same tea party that promoted candidates like Michele Bachmann and Sarah Palin, despite their repeated political gaffes. Things have gotten downright comical. And I think its safely time to say that Herman Cain is a sideshow that we can no longer pretend to take seriously. When we hear his name, it should be accompanied with a begrudging chuckle. Because hey, I liked listening to Donald Trump pretend he would run. But Id like to think I also knew when to change the channel. Alex Guilmartin is a psychology and pre-law senior at UF. His column appears on Thursdays. Alex Guilmartinletters@alligator.org

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 27, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 7 In the midst of regional turmoil and over whelming pressure for change, Moroccos monarchy has seemed to be a model for the Arab world of pre-emptive and proactive government action to preserve stability. In the face of popular protests driven by the Feb. 20 youth movement, King Mohammed VI was able to defuse tensions rapidly and effectively. In his historic March 9 speech, he called for reform, announcing a comprehensive constitutional reform which is designed to upgrade and revamp state institutions. Within months, a new constitution had been written, presented and passed with a reported 98.5 percent approval rating in a referendum as much on Moroccos king and monarchy as on political changes. The institution of cosmetic constitutional reforms allowed for the defusing of popular tensions and the re-branding of the monar chy as reformist without making substantial changes to the current system. These dynamics between king and people in enacting reform all are illustrative of some of the fundamental challenges to genuine and lasting political change in the Middle East. The stabilizing combination of the traditional legitimacy of the monarchy, the personal charisma of the king and a careful balancing act between concession and repression provide a template of stability at the cost of individual liberty. Mohammed VI has continued to command a certain amount of popular and traditional authority. Having succeeded his unpopular father, Hassan II, in 1999, he has always presented himself as a modernizer and reformer. Portraying himself as King of the Poor, he has strongly condemned government corruption and economic inequality. In a June 17 speech leading up to the July 1 constitutional referendum, the King framed his objectives largely in terms of the crafting of more just and legitimate state, speaking of his commitment to constitutional reform as watershed event in the construction of a state based on the rule of law and on democratic institutions. However, the espousal of parliamentarian principles has yet to correlate with their execution, and the referendum itself seems to hurt its intended ends. Considering that turnout in the most recent parliamentary election was a paltry 37 percent, the reported 72 percent turnout rate seems surprising, to say the least. Among the worlds most enduring dictators, Mohammed VI still commands almost unchecked power. He is, by law and tradition, commander of the faithful and head of state, combining political, moral and religious authority. While slightly limiting the previously unchecked power of this Leviathan, the unelected and unaccountable king remains dominant with regard to executive power. The king appointed a small group of governvarious opposition movements, to revise the constitution, which he claimed was drawn up by Moroccans, for all Moroccans. In thus sticking to its authoritarian prerogatives, Aboubakr Jamai, a prominent Moroccan journalist and 2007 Niemann Felow at Har vard, sees the monarchy as having made the smart move by market[ing] the whole process as the benevolent king opposed by tiny, noisy, archical minority. Optimistically, one could argue that an enlightened monarchy could, by gradually building the institutional basis and allowing civil society to strengthen, nurture the development of a more stable and sustainable democracy that would bring greater good, politically and socially, to all Moroccans. The King could be considered the optimal political actor for the allowance of sustainable, peaceful and lasting change. However, a distinction must be made between the facade presented by external perceptions of the Moroccan regime and its reality of a backsliding of freedom in Morocco since Mohammed VI has come to power is more representative. By the Freedom Houses rating of political rights and civil respectively, on a scale of of one to seven. Particularly in recent years, freedom of the press in Morocco has experienced a steady, downward trend and can, in brief, be considered not free. The Press Law allows for prison terms for nosy journalists and government ownership of mediathe monarchy has a major stake in Moroccos main TV networks, giving it a high degree of control over domestic media. Particularly in recent years, freedom of the press in Morocco has experienced a steady, downward trend. When he was recently visiting Harvard for an event at the Ash Center, Moroccan jour nalist Aboubakr Jamai expressed his concern that the viability of the independent press of Morocco has been undercut by governments use of both its economic muscle and various legislative strategies to force independent newspapers to shut down. In 2000, his own Le Journal Hebdomadaire was banned after publishing an interview with Muhammad Abdelaziz, leader of the Polisario Front, a rebel movement for the independence of the Western Sahara since the 1970s. The status of the Western Sahara falls among the topics namely religion, the king and the monarchy that are, in practice, taboo. Today in Morocco, more so than in previous years, Jamai believes that journalism means militancy not being paid regularly or not being paid at all. Especially in recent months, journalists and bloggers covering demonstrations have experienced intimidation and even physical violence from police. As elsewhere in the Arab Spring, Facebook and other social media have provided a crucial means of organization and communication by creating a political space independent of government authority. Internet usage in Morocco jumped from 3.4 percent in 2003 to more than 32.2 percent as of 2009, breaking the governments monopoly on the dissemination of information. The ability to use online resources as a source of information and to publish online have allowed jour nalists to distance themselves from potential pressure. While technology cant necessarily be considered a causal factor, it does allow for complex and contentious dialogue that engages all aspects of society. Jamai believes that ultimately democracy means risks, means freeing voices, and, with the limited degree of freedom of expression permitted in Morocco, the Internet may be the best way of doing so. Although the implementation of genuine reform and the institution of true democratic processes are possible and could, per haps, be seen as inevitable in Morocco, change will not come without upending the status quo and risking its stability and security. Moroccos model of soft autocracy and benevolent monarchy do seem to contribute more tangibly and immediately to personal and societal good than unwhile the monarchical model may persist in the short term, it will certainly face fur ther challenges to its legitimacy as popular pressure continues to mount. The Feb. 20th movement continues to organize, and protests have been recently revived. As Jamai puts it, Democracy is a constant struggle, and were never done. Upcoming parliasince 2007, will test politicians responsiveness to popular pressures and current levels of political engagement.

Kellen said after the drama of breaking up is done, he tends to surround himself with the opposite sex. a new girlfriend; hes just searching for some female affection. trying to be around people a lot, Kellen said. Because when Im with other people, I dont think about the breakup. If I were alone, it would be the only thing on my mind. Spending time with friends is important after a split. You need to keep the sense of companionship and happiness that you had during the relationship. Remember, moving on from an ex is like a bad Halloween costume the only thing you can do is admit it sucked and try again next year, or next week.

He Says She Says He Said, She Said: How do you get over someone you had feelings for?Preparing my liver for the approaching Flor ida/Georgia, Fest 10 and Halloween weekend insanity soon to abound, I decided to bar hop and ask strangers what their methods are for esty, and whats a better lube than alcohol? From what Ive gathered, when dealing with residual feelings from a breakup, its as though the Jekyll and Hyde dichotomy gets the best of everyone. Forcing us into an internal combat that divides our conscious between helpful and harmful, even those with the most ironclad or rather replace, feelings of companionship now eradicated. For those who opt for self-destruction, debauchery and casual sex often mask pangs of removed intimacy. Others expressed taking the newfound freedom as an excuse for self-improvement nurturing the ties with other people in their lives, getting back into shape and kicking ass at school and work. The truth is, I really dont know how to tackle this question. Obviously, its better to reap some kind of positive inspiration from the separation, but lets face the fact that none of us are superhuman. If you get drunk and have a one-nighter, you might feel like crap the next day, but I will say that this isnt necessarily a bad thing. My lovely readers, we only live once, and its are and what we want out of life, love and most importantly, ourselves. OK yes, being newly single requires adjustment, and depending on how much you cared for your ex, this can be completely draining. I hate to say it, but regardless of whether one falls into category indigent or inspired, the only remedy that really mends is out of our control: time. In the interim, if youre feeling nutty then talk to a counselor. Its their job. Although, I would like to close this week with little tidbit of wisdom: If you write an emotionally charged email to your ex, give yourself at least 24 hours before sending it. Learn from my mistake, and spare yourselves the embarrassment. It will make moving on much easier. KAY BEA SAPHIRA LAZARREAvenue Writer What started out as a carry-away for fountain drinks has morphed into a party staple. Nothing quite says cheers and, No, you cant know whats in my cup, its MY cup, like the waxy, red plastic goblet that is the Solo cup. This year, the Solo Cup Company is celebrating Years of appearance in Chicago in 1936. It was used at drive-in movies as a way to improve sanitation with convenience in mind. Today, that still holds true, and the party essential is still available in the iconic red. The color is infallible. Its synonymous with the phrase, Were having a good time. Lets face it, despite whatever beverage you may have 18-ounces of in that cup, you just dont want a picture with it to land on your employers Facebook newsfeed. Thats why weve become so good at tucking it behind our friends back when leaning in for that group photo. Cheese! You could even have milk in a Solo cup and a plate of cookies next to you but wouldnt dare be caught red-handed in a photo with it (no pun intended). But we cant forget the other Solo products. The Solo Cup Company has made its landmark in being one of the biggest distributors of single-use disposable products. From plastic tableware to cups, containers and plates, the Solo Cup Company meets the needs of just about any social gathering. Many tailgates, family picnics and barbeques were successful thanks to Solo. So this weekend, whether youre Saving the ta-tas, having fun at a Halloween bash or celebrating the Gators win over those Dawgs (we hope), raise a toast and praise the real life of the party the Solo cup.Cheers to a red-hot 75 years: the anniversary of the Solo cup Kellen Denny

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 27, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 9Carly Coleman/ AlligatorCross-dress: Frat Guy Ladies create their own TFM by sporting Sperry shoes, a red Solo cup, a button-down and khaki shorts. Carly Coleman/ AlligatorSocial Media: Twitter Tap into modern-day trends with this original Halloween costume. Take a display poster or white board and morph it into throughout the night. MAE BASIRATMAND Avenue Writer As a sober Lindsey Lohan once said in the movie Mean Girls, Halloween is the one night a year when a girl can dress up like a total slut, and no other girls can say anything about it. In college, Halloween is the time of the year when everyone can play someone theyre not and get away with it. Costumes, however, can rack up a lot of money, and the whole idea of originality fades. But this year, all you really need already exists in household items and some imagination. If all else fails, just put on all your gym clothes and winter coats at the same time, and say youre channeling your inner Gaga. The Group Costume Sometimes its hard to coordinate with so many people, but Halloween is just more fun when youre dressing up with friends. If you want to annoy people, run around Halloween night dressed up as the Angry Birds characters. This can be achieved by wearing masks depicting the different characters and taping feather tails to your shorts. For your eclectic group of friends, just go as the cast of Modern Family. Surely we all channel one person from the cast. For the group of girls who want to dress up as the Kardashians: simply put pillows in your jeans and make sure your black wig reaches it. Cross-dress This is the time of the year when crossdressing will help you pick up whomever you want to. This is very easy to do, as you can just ask to borrow clothes from your neighbors who live downstairs. Use it as an excuse to come in. Ladies should dress up as frat guys. Get out the Sperry shoes, khaki shorts, button-down shirts and dont forget a red Solo cup. Guys can dress up like girls by wearing bows in their hair, a Vera Bradley backpack and a sundress (if you want to take it to an extreme). Dont forget to throw up those sorority letters. Social Media Be Facebook or Twitter. Take a display throughout the night. Make sure you have people write on your wall with a Sharpie. If you want to be Twitter, just do the same as Facebook, but make sure you tweet every time you see something that seems tweet-worthy. You can also use a white board to create and erase tweets throughout the night. Dont forget a hash tag! DIY: Cheap, easy ways to craft impressive, original costumes halloween Carly Coleman/ AlligatorThe Group Costume: The Kardashians nate with your costumes by dressing up as the Kardashians. Based on your personalities, choose who gets to be Kourtney, Khloe and Kim. Dont forget to put a pillow in your pants to create those famous backsides.

10, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, OCTOBER 27, 2011 MAE BASIRATMANDAvenue WriterIt would be foolish to condemn college students for drinking. After all, if its a football weekend, you know inebriation is going to be a mass event. Yet, consuming glass after glass of drinks is not only detrimental to your wallet but to your health, too. We all know the negative effects of alcohol (come on, were required to take a quiz on it as a freshman), but what drink options are better? Dont discount working out for hours at Southwest Recreation Center and meticulously watching what you eat just to blow it on chugging sessions at tailgates. Not to mention, the inevitable, dreaded hangover will come after a night of downing shots with your buddies. Next time you plan on going out, think of these quick tips and alternatives to save yourself the nausea and to Thanksgiving rolls around. The higher the proof of the alcohol, the more calories it contains. For example, 80-proof vodka has 64 calories versus 100-proof vodka, which has 82 calories. Avoid sugary cocktails, such as those with syrup. These add calories and make you more thirsty. Use mixers such as club soda, water or low-calorie fruit juices.The fewer items mixed into your drink, the less calories. Opt for sparkling water or simply use a lemon or lime wedge to add some taste. If you do need a sweetener, use a low-calorie one such as Splenda. Dont be fooled by light beer. If you plan on drinking more beer because it has less calories, think again. Drinking more light beer can be worse than just drinking regular beer, which has the full taste. Give yourself a cap by the end of the night. Setting limits is key to making sure you dont go overboard. Setting such limits will also help you know how much money youll spend and how much to expect youll be drinking. The Avenues compiled some healthy drink alternatives for your boozing, so you can prepare properly for the weekends festivities. Instead of downing high-calorie drinks, have to think twice before ordering these healthy, yet refreshing and delicious, choices. Planning to chug away this weekend? Dark Rum and Diet Coke -1 shot of rum, a splash of diet coke Vodka Water -1 shot of vodka, mixed with water, squeeze a Glass of Wine -5 ounces of any red or white wine Mojito Cosmo -1 ounces of mint vodka, 2 ounces of cranberry juice, ounce of lime juice Low-Cal Mimosa -2 ounces of low-calorie orange juice, 3 ounces of champagne Tequila on the Rocks -1 shots of Tequila, squeeze lemon and lime, ice cubes Gin and Tonic -1 ounces of gin, 5 ounces of tonic water Drink Recipes

12, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, OCTOBER 27, 2011Courtesy to the Alligator Chuckles the Clown taunts unsuspecting travelers through the haunted trail at Eerie Acres. DIANA LOPEZAvenue WriterSwaying blue lights illuminate the winding, wooded path you walk through, while actors hide in the brush, waiting to jump out from the darkness. The path leads you through a sawmill town cursed by a voodoo priestess. Chuckles the Clown, Mrs. Slaughter, the Butcher and the chainsaw-wielding Virgil roam through the woods waiting for passers-by to haunt. The haunted trail at Eerie Acres Haunted Attraction offers guests a chance to become better acquainted through a 9-acre corn maze or enjoy a hayride under starry skies. The event will run this Friday and Satur Fla. Susan Watson, creator of the event, said this has been something she has always wanted to do. Watson used to put on scare trails for friends and family before she decided to turn it into a public event. She runs it with her husband, Phillip, and said this is Eerie Acres second year running. Chris Palmer plays a deranged hillbilly on the trail, looking for food for his cannibalistic mother. Palmer, information technology specialist at the College of Pharmacy at the University of Florida, said that peoples true colors really come out on the trail. I had a lady throw her purse at me, Palmer said. Addison Mertz, lab technician for the State of Florida, plays Slugger the Clown and is new to Eerie Acres this year. He said he has already made a 9-year-old cry. Mertz also said he enjoys the leniency of his character because he gets to be creative. I give them the basics of a character or scenario and they run with it, developing the individuality of the character or scene, then bring it to life, Watson said. On the website, there is a full-length story to accompany the theme of the haunted trail in the perspective of a writer who goes to investigate the mysteries of the town. You discover her fate at the end of the trail. The half-mile trail takes about 20 minutes to complete. All guests are encouraged to wear closed toed shoes and children younger than the age of 13 are to be accompanied by an adult. The maze, which is new to Eerie Acres this year, is cut in the shape of a grim reaper. There are maps, riddles and clues inside the maze to assist guests. Curtis Perry, plumbing contractor and parent, said the event is a cheap and safe way to entertain the kids. This year, he brought along his daughter Darby, 13. She said she will not be walking the haunted trail this Gregg Watson, cousin to the family, drives the tractors for the hayrides and said each trip takes about 40 people. The hayride is three-quarters of a mile long and takes about 20 minutes to complete. Children younger than the age of 5 have free admission. For all others, the entrance to the hayride is $3, the maze $7 and the trail $15. Guests may also purchase an all-inclusive package for $20, which allows admission for all three events. Group discounts are available for groups of 10 or more. Cash is only accepted at the gate, although online ticketing is available. on site to assist guests as well. For directions or for more information, visit eerieacres.com.Eerie Acres: A scare with a storyline ERICA A. HERNANDEZAvenue Writer Not your typical trip to the strawberry October activity. The third-annual Rogers Farm Corn Maze, 3831 NW 156th Ave., is now open, and it offers the perfect mix of fright and fall. Heres what to expect. 1. It IS scary. Dont be fooled. Just because the maze is family-friendly during the day doesnt mean it cant deliver at night. Oh yeah, expect to be scared, said Lar ry Rogers, owner of Rogers Farm. We got a couple chain saws out there, some scary suits and masks. 2. You will get lost. With 10 acres of corn, its almost impossible to avoid. But whats a night at a corn maze without about an hour or two of wandering around scared, cold and lost? So make sure you gather around your favorite group of people and wander through the maze. It could take you a while. The maze was scary, but it was a lot of fun. We all got lost for quite a while, Kjer stine Payne, a 19-year-old general business studies major, said of the maze. 3. The spook trail. This is a special feature of the maze that runs through the woods located on the farm. But keep an eye out; the trail isnt your aver age hiking root. We got a few things out in the spook trail that work pretty well, Rogers commented. 4. Not too much Paranormal Activity. We try to scare, but it is more friendly scare. We arent out there grabbing people, Rogers said. No Halloween Horror Nights, this family-owned and operated maze is a nod to the nostalgic days where fear factors were as simple as spooky ghosts and scarecrows. 5. While you are on the farm make sure to pick up your Halloween essentials and Pumpkins and tractor pulled hayrides are available. Rogers Corn Maze will be open until Nov. 13. The haunted corn maze comes alive at 8 p.m. and goes until midnight Friday and Saturday. The costs for the corn maze is $8. For more information, visit rogers-farm. com.

Hunter was a senior at Buford (Ga.) High in 2007. I know a lot of people say they dont like it; but me, as a fan, I kinda liked it, he said. I was getting recruited and was like, Thats something new. It is what it is. Its a great football game, great rivalry, and I love it. Demps unrestrained: Muschamp said running back Jeff Demps is at top speed during practice this week. Demps (ankle) missed the game against Auburn, and in the LSU and Alabama games he carried the four yards. The senior gained 320 yards and scored four touchdowns four games. Contact Tyler Jett at tjett@ alligator.org. THURSDAY, OCTOBER 27, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 19 Alligator File PhotoUGA quarterback Aaron Murray has thrown for 1,653 yards and 16 touchdowns, and he ranks 18th nationally in yards per attempt. Murray second-leading passer in SECThats where our conversations are going. For Georgia to claim just its fourth win in the series in the last 21 years, Murray will have to challenge a Florida secondary that has been largely untested this season. During UFs three-game losing streak, opponents have passed only 55 times compared to 135 runs, but the defense has still given up a handful of big passing plays. Testing Floridas defensive backs could prove easy for a more mature Murray, who ranks second in the Southeastern Confer ence in passing with 236.1 yards per game. For the season, Murray has thrown for 1,653 yards and 16 touchdowns. He ranks third in the confer hind only LSUs Jarrett Lee and Alabamas A.J. McCarron. He is also second in the conference and 18th nationally among qualifying passers in yards per attempt with 8.3. Youre going to get 10 to 12 shots in the game where theyre ly, and you have to defend those balls, Florida coach Will Muschamp said Monday. Theres no question that this game will be a little different from the ones weve seen in the last two weeks especially, as far as what people are trying to do Contact Tom Green at tgreen@ alligator.org. GEORg GIaA, from page 17 FOOTBALL, from page 17Demps back to top speed in practice Four-star WR commit: UF searching for identityIt affects (my commitment), but not as much. I just look at it as Why are we losing games? We should win. I love the new offense, (but) Florida needs bigger backs I want to come in and help the Gators win. I look at it as a rebuilding year for any team. Wide receiver commit Latroy Pittman of Citra North Marion High committed on Aug. 18, 2010. He was a bit surprised by the Phillips news, but said the losing streak really doesnt affect me much. Every team has its run and their rough seasons. Just take it for what it is: new coaching staff, kind of a young team looking for its identity. Just playing more assignment football, doing more of the little things right (are keys), he said. Melbourne Holy Trinitys Marcus Maye, a safety commit, was also surprised by Phillips move, but says that as far as his commitment, he is still in, 100 percent. Maye, who injured his foot earlier this month, said one thing is on his mind when watching the struggling Gators: Make them better. Oral commitments are non-binding until a national letter of intent is signed on or after National Signing Day on Feb. 1, 2012. RRECRUIT, from page 17 UF Recruiting

20, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, OCTOBER 27, 2011 THE RALLY Greg: John Brantley is back! Signal the trumpets and ring the bells, Floridas senior quarterback (and savior) has returned. Not so fast. Regardless of who is under center, the Gators have a ton of issues to get ironed out. The last three games, Floridas offensive line has surrendered nine sacks and paved the way for only 64.7 rushing yards per contest. The defense has given up 206.3 yards per game on the ground in the three losses, down from the 61 mark that was No. 5 nationally after four weeks. Even the pass defense has fallen off, giving up 8.7 yards per attempt in October after holding opponents to 4.7 yards On special teams, Florida couldnt even catch a punt against Auburn. Matt: Didnt you hear Will Muschamp on team a humongous psychological boost! Thats all the Gators need. Stop it with all these stats and facts and logic, Greg. All that matters is how Florida approaches this game mentally. Plus, that boost isnt limited to just the offense. Brantley playing against Georgia is going to help the defense, too! Omar Hunter even said so. We feed off of Brantley. Having your starting quarterback back, that makes you feel good. Were gonna play hard for Brantley. Greg: A couple tackles might be nice. Besides, UFs players have shown that what they say isnt always accurate. Although he admitted the Gators have focused on tackling aggressively and with up a period of practice each day, Sharrif Floyd said tackling isnt a problem or something that wasnt where it needed to be. Wrong. Those pesky stats and facts and logic show Auburn, LSU and Alabama pounding Florida with dominating rushing attacks. Michael Dyer, Spencer Ware and Trent Richardson all had some success on the that same downhill, power-running mold. I dont think Brantley plans to trot out on defense, so Im not sure his presence will help that a ton. That is, unless this psychological boost includes some kind of psychic, leg-paralyzing mind tackling. Matt: Tackling, schmackling. The Gators didnt lose all those games because they couldnt wrap up. They lost them because they didnt have Brantley. Duh. UFs gunslinger may even be the best quarterback in the state, including the NFL teams. The difference hes going to make by returning is immeasurable: Quinton Dunbar is going to be relevant. Deonte Thompson will be one game closer to getting that championship, man. And Jordan Reed may even catch a chest-high throw without leaping to the moon. With Brantley back, the sky really is the limit. You saw what he did against Alabama. over him. Stats are for losers. All Johnny does is win. If you dont see yet, you will. Just wait. Greg: Im a little jarred by the use of Branta second to regroup. This is the same quarterback who was benched so a pair of tight ends could take snaps last season. A year doesnt change all that much. Even if Brantley has improved, the Gators would need Aaron Rodgers-level talent to make something out of this hodgepodge of wide receivers. If you add all of their stats together, their 646 yards still rank behind the NCAAs top 26 individual wideouts. I dont see a quarterback who threw more picks than touchdowns last year saving the season with such a dreary supporting cast. Matt: OK, before we get a ton (read: three) of emails and comments from incredulous fans who cant read between the lines, let me be frank: My entire stance has been sarcasm. Of course, Brantleys return doesnt mean that much. The Gators have plenty of problems that the return of one slightly above-avFans need to realize this and gain some perspective. Buckle up for a bumpy ride. Contact Greg Luca at gluca@alligator.org and Matt Watts at mwatts@alligator.org. Will Brantleys return really be the boost Florida needs?
