WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 19, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 3 SHELBY WEBBAlligator Staff WriterDrunk munchies may take on a new meaning Friday. Fat Daddys, a new bar in Midtown, will open its doors beneath Munchies 420 Cafe J.D. Chester, owner of Munchies 420 Cafe and Fat Daddys, said he hopes to add some class to the strip of bars. Our motto is clean, cold and loud, he said, grinning. Chester said the idea to open a bar came after the owner of Gator Shop, a Gatorsthemed retailer that resided in the building for about 30 years, asked Chester if he would buy the struggling business space. Because its right under Munchies 420 Cafe, Chester said it seemed like the perfect place to open a bar. Itll be a little more upscale but for a college-kid price, he said. However, opening the bar took longer than expected. Fat Daddys, located at 1702 W. University Ave., was supposed to open this summer, but Chester said getting the necessary per mits and construction set the grand opening back by a few months. The lengthy construction helped to completely transform the retail space, he said. The windows that once surrounded the store are now metallic swirls that change colors with alternating lighting. walls, except for the beer coolers behind the main bar, which are lit in orange. A staircase leads from the back of the bar up to Munchies 420 Cafe, which can serve food to inebriated customers until 4:20 a.m. But Chester said the most noteworthy feature is a daiquiri bar near the staircase. blue razz and the hurricane. Compared to other Midtown drink prices, Chester said Fat Daddys will try to keep prices low. It will be more expensive than some, but cheaper than others, he said. This Friday will be the grand opening and will include free tastings of 1,800 Coconut tequila and Jose Cuervo drink promotions. Patrick Hacker, a 21-year-old UF mechanical engineering junior, said he is glad to see a new bar on the block. Though he is not a frequent Midtown visitor, he said he loves running into all of his friends, but not the crowds. Id like to see more open spaces instead of just sweating all the time, he said. But he thinks the daiquiris may be just the thing to cool him down. Its a fresh new thing that no one really makes, Hacker said, so it should be pretty good.

It bought 17 new steel swords. This show will include three stage combat scenes, and the students will use steel swords.

In February, Limbaugh called a Georgetown University law student a slut on air after she declared her support for President Barack Obamas plan for contraception coverage. Travis said female contraceptives should be legal and widely available. It is shocking to me that there are people in politics today who believe that womens access to legal birth control should be restricted, Travis said. and Sciences senior lecturer Lynn Leverty said Limbaughs comments were highly inappropriate but not unusual for him.

SAMANTHA SHAVELLAlligator Staff WriterThe Student Senate unanimously passed a resolution Tuesday that opposes raising roam towing charges in Gainesville. Roam towing or trespassing rates are fees people pay when their cars are towed. The rates are regulated by the city, said Director of External Affairs Billy Vranish. The resolution, which was authored by Vranish and Sen. Sydney Kaplan, asks the Gainesville City Commission to not raise the towing rate until more substantial evidence can justify it. Rates are $76, and have been since 1997, according to the resolution. But this summer, towing companies petitioned to increase the rate to $100. The City Commissions Public Safety Committee has reviewed the petition and has reached a 2-to-1 vote recommending to raise the rate to $84, Vranish said after the meeting. The City Commission will vote on it Thursday. All were asking is the [towing comVranish said.

I dont think all religions hit the peak, largely because most of them say that my effort determines whether I make it. Fat chance. Ive never known a human who wasnt prone to fail. If were depending on our own goodness and good works to thrust us up the mountain, we are in bad shape. In the middle of the incessant frustration of climbing and falling, I heard a peculiar story about the God of the mountain: Looking on the futility of human effort, he enacted a izing the human heart at its core. passion. What do the people do when the God of the mountain comes down to the base to carry them up to the top? My best guess is they let him do it, even if it means recognizing that none of their efforts wouldve gotten them close. ishness that were used to. No ones piddling with ethical codes here.

WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 19, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 7Letter to the EditorIn the midst of this political season, I am disappointingly struck by the tremendous amount of money being spent on two presidential campaigns and other federal, state and local campaigns. I believe this saddens not only me, but tens of millions of other Americans. Viewing this tremendous amount of money spent by so driven to write this letter. Considering that most of the salaries son to the money spent to gain these ofoff their blinders to realize just how much underhandedness and corruption exists in all levels of our government. Americans are no longer idealistic or faithful about willing to go all out to help every citizen, no doubt that money buys access to government policies. Therefore, campaign contributions are, in actuality, investments in rich and powerful peoples futures! Is there any wonder why so many people dont bother to vote? Are my views cynical or truthful? Can American government at all levels, be guilty of some of the biggest white-collar crimes on Earth? Just some questions to ponder during this political season. Timothy ( Tim ) Monroe Bledsoe resident of North Augusta, S.C. Earlier this month, President Barack Obama was photographed doing the Gator chomp at a sports bar in Orlando. On Monday, Michelle Obama spoke to a packed OConnell Center and did the the chomp. While many students in Gainesville will appreciate the gesture, we cannot let this distract us from the reality that this president is a failure. We cannot support a president who fails to address our nations most pressing issues. While unemployment remains high, this president fails to free the private sector of job-killing regulations. With Medicare and Social Security on the road to solvency, this president fails to address reform. With the tax code rewarding Washington insiders and punishing success, this president fails to lead tax reform. With a broken immigration system that excludes too many talented individuals, this president bypassed Congress and only complicated efforts to reform immigration policy. With rising powers such as China and Russia spending more on their militaries, this president fails to address the automatic defense cuts that will go into effect at the beginning of next year. With consistently high gas prices, this president fails to allow expanded exploration and development of Americas abundant oil and natural gas, and instead subsidizes failed technologies. With government dependence at its highest level in decades, this president guts welfare reform by in effect removing the work requirement. This presidents record is that of repeated failure, but we do not have to settle for failure. There is another choice another future, in which prosperity is not shared by way of government policy but is earned by hard work and determination. In this future, success is not punished but rather celebrated. This future can become reality with Mitt Romney as president. Mitt Romney and Republicans are accused of being a party with old ideas inapplicable to todays world. Is freedom inapplicable? Is liberty out of style? Are work, success and security a thing of the past? Is family no longer valued as an institution? Is responsibility no longer a virtue? The truth is that some principles and values are timeless. made to establish and protect these principles and values. With the Constitution as our guide, we must begin to restore our republic before it is too late, before this nation becomes something fundamentally different. After all, we the people face a fundamental choice this November. Each of us, as individuals, must ask ourselves: What do I want America to stand for? Should America lead as a beacon of hope and prosperity to millions? Or should we imitate the policies of other nations now suffering debt crises? Should Americans be protected by laws that guarantee equal opportunity? Or should we be a nation of legislated outcome, Should America rise to meet those malicious powers in the world that would destroy our way of life? Or should America lower its guard and rely on the goodwill of those who have the means to destroy? These are only a few of the questions you should ask yourself. Seldom do people have the opportunity to choose the future of millions, born and unborn, as we will in November. There is one more question that you should ask yourself. Before you answer, remember the failures of this president, and think about your own experience. Think about your own life. It is, after all, your decision. Are you better off than you were four years ago? Austin Swink is a political science junior and communications director for Gators for Romney.Guest columnAustin SwinkSpeaking Out On Sept. 11, we remembered the tragic and time, I watched the exact TV footage from that dreadful day. Every year since 2001, we have taken the time to remember that day, to remember those whom we have lost. We had united as a nation, under one tragedy that we all could identify with. This year, in a new era, more than a decade removed from that day so long ago, it appeared that I and so many other students did not acknowledge it as we have in the past. It seemed, with exception of MSNBCs direct ry was inappropriately lost among its most impacted generation. While memorial events did occur, I expected that role in the days conversations. As I crossed campus this Sept. 11 to go to various classes and club meetings, the fact that it was the anniversary of that day of terror failed to be mentioned to the degree most would expect. Unlike past years, it appears that those who recAs I was watching the uninterrupted footage last Tuesday, the commentators were speculating, merely guessing, in the heat of the moment on the impact the event would have on the future course of our nation. Initially the role of al-Qaida was mentioned as a possibility, and it appeared likely that we would transition from peace to war. It appeared that the entire nation, regardless of political persuasion, in a moment of tragedy, loss and anger, would support an invasion of the Middle East. Since then, it appears we have been in a neverending state of war. In light of these developments, I found it shocking and unacceptable that we, the children who have grown up in the aftermath, failed to properly recogin public forums such as classes and meetings. In light of the death, destruction, heroism and courage people exhibited that day, it should not be forgotten. When the events of this dreadful day barely strike conversation on the anniversary, a major issue exists. Despite many nationally and locally organized vigils and memorials, the tragedy should be discussed and recognized so that the level of its severity and long-lasting impact in daily life is never forgotten. Memorials are lovely and should be maintained in the future. However, an over-reliance on them on a tragic day does not encourage the development of a culture that should not be permitted to make that day a blip in our nations history. If this continues, this date will soon be trivial. The memory of Sept. 11, 2001 and its aftermath still affects us to this day and will last long into the on international and domestic affairs. attacks left on our once invulnerable nation, it is a shame we do not expand our efforts to recognize this memory. We should remember the day like it was last year. Matthew Schnur is an economics freshman at UF.

WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 19, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 9 COLLEEN WRIGHTAlligator Contributing WriterLaura Sjoberg once saw a transgendered person being harassed by airport security and knew she wanted to stop it from happening again. To get people to understand discrimination, they have to understand privilege, she said. Sjoberg, an associate professor of political science, was one of two panelists who led Politics of Privilege, an intimate discussion with 15 people held in the Atrium at Ustler Hall Tuesday night. The discussion was sponsored by UF LGBT Affairs and co-sponsored by the UF Center for Womens Studies and Gender Research. Esther Tebbe, a 25-year-old UF counseling psychology graduate student, was the other speaker on the panel. Her research includes transgender issues, including career decisionmaking, aspects of discrimination and the transition process. Tebbe and Sjoberg dug into the root of transgender discrimination and topics of cisgender privilege, biphobia and transphobia with the panel. Everyone has a degree of unfamiliarity, Sjoberg said. And everyone deals with unfamiliarity in a different way. LGBT Affairs intern Marla Munro said the discussion has no connection to the hate crime committed against a UF law professor last week. She said every group within Diversity and Multicultural Affairs will host a discussion about privilege this semester. This is about starting conversations of looking toward the future, evoking change in our own lives and discussion in the community, Munro said. Psychology senior Logan Stallings, 21, said he is happy there was dialogue in the discussion. We not just looked outwardly, but inwardly, Stallings said.Panel discusses gender issues TICKETS WILL BE AVAILABLE ON FRIDAY.

Its not just like seniors hang out with seniors, freshmen Floridas freshmen saw Southeastern Conference games. Claire Falknor picked up spot in UFs opening match against Miami on Aug. 17, scoring Floridas only goal in a 4-1 loss.

Coach Will Muschamp named Driskel the starter on Sept. 3 following a Week 1 win against Bowling Green. Florida won its next two matchups, road conference games, and is No. 14 in the nation with the reigning Southeastern Conference Offensive Player of the Week in Driskel. Yet, theres still an elephant in Muschamp has mentioned the each of his three Monday press conferences since Driskel took the Listen to the players and the pocket presence, and Driskel equal.

With the competition all but over, Brissett and his 6-foot-4 frame loom large on the sidelines. I cant blame the coaching staff for making sure he gets the attention he deserves. The scrambling Driskel is a pop to the shoulder waiting to happen. Even though the Volunteers didnt sack Driskel, defenders have dropped the quarterback nine times, the most in the Southeastern Conference. At some point, though, the catering to has to stop. It may be premature, but Flor ida has an issue going forward. Driskel is the clear guy primed to bring Florida back to national relevance, but the Gators have a quarterback who is apparently just as talented on the bench. This isnt a bad problem, either. Just one that needs to be handled correctly. From talking to Brissett, he seems like the kind of kid who wants to continue pushing Driskel for the job, and he deserves credit for his demeanor. Hes the type of football player Muschamp wants on his team. But at what point do you let a Florida got burned for picking one quarterback over another in the past. While Auburn received Cam Newton thanks to a stolen computer, the Gators found themselves stuck with John Brantley. That likely wont be the case between these two, but the solution in this situation is to let Brissett transfer. Brissett deserves a chance to start a full season, but that chance doesnt look like it will come as a Gator. Contact Adam Pincus at apincus@alligator.org. Through three games, the Florida offense has looked more explosive than it did last year, and the team is quick to credit improved blocking for the big plays. Hammond showed his appreciation for his fellow receiver by posting a picture of Dunbars block on Twitter on Sunday. If somebody scores a play two yards or 100 yards, it really wouldnt make a differ ence because its not just me that made that play, Hammond said. Theres a lot of guys. Like I said, Driskel picking up the protection, of us to be on the same page to get the job done. I scored the touchdown, but 10 other guys helped me do it. In addition to praising the blockers, offensive coordinator Brent Pease credited Hammonds individual effort on the long touchdown. He had open space, took advantage and got the ball vertical. I mean, he did what a receiver is supposed to do, Pease said. Once you develop that motor habit, you get good at it. Pease said most long plays are a result of a total group effort between the blockers and the ball carrier. He added that all of Floridas skill position players made a commitment to improve their blocking. The players realized has the ball, those players will be more likely to return the favor. The improvement was evident on Hammonds touchdown against Tennessee. He had a similar 50-yard touchdown in the opener against Bowling Green but had to do a lot more of the work himself. Dunbar and Omarius Hines caught up to the play in the red zone but failed to pick up blocks. er, Pease said he simply has to put in the effort, which is 90 percent of the equation. Only the other 10 percent is natural ability. Everybody has the ability to do it, Pease said. Youve got to kind of have the drive to do it, and they do. Right tackle Kyle Koehne, who started Saturday in place of the injured Chaz Green, was encouraged by what he saw out of the receivers blocking. It just shows that its kind of more of a team thing this year, Koehne said. Everyone is trying to help each other out. I think its a really good sign for us.

soon as she peels out. Shes going to make that run. Its good that we have that instant connection. Defenders Brooke Smith and Christen Westphal also played Smith received substantial aclege career against Kentucky on Friday, totaling 60 minutes of playing time on the weekend. Finally being out there and just in the moment, I just took it all in, did what I could, and Im looking forward to working harder and hopefully getting more minutes, Smith said. Westphal has seen the most playing time of the freshman class. She played every minute of both matches this past weekend and has started in seven of the Gators eight games. Both of them are great playKing said. For freshmen, again, to step in is a huge factor, and its a hard thing to do. I think theyve done really well. When the team isnt on the classmen still spend a lot of time together, whether theyre talking between classes, eating dinner together or having a scary movie night. Were pretty much always together, King said. We dont really go our separate ways. Coach Becky Burleigh said the relationship between the freshmen and upperclassmen is ter What I like the most about them is theyve been very little drama, Burleigh said. I think its been a very easy transition. JONATHAN CZUPRYNAlligator WriterFor the second time in two weeks, Florida hauled in a Southeastern Conference weekly award through the work of an underclassman. Sophomore libero Taylor Unroe was named the SEC Defensive Player of the Week on Monday after her performances against Arkansas and No. 24 Kentucky during the weekend. Freshman outside hitter Ziva Recek was named SEC Freshman of the Week on Sept. 4. Associate head coach Dave Boos said Unroes presence during the critical to Floridas 2-0 start in the Kentucky impressed him most. We outdefended them highlighted by Taylor Unroe, he said. She probably had her best match this year defensively. Really good stuff for us out there. For us to be the champ at the end of this whole thing, we have to play better defense. And Sunday was an indication that were on that path. Unroes weekend began with a career day against the Razorbacks in Fayetteville, Ark., on Friday. In year, Unroe registered a careerthe Gators earn their 22nd straight victory in an SEC opener. She added 17 digs against Kentucky to bring her weekend total to 41. Unroes 5.13 digs per set on Floridas SEC road trip raised her average digs per set on the season by .21 digs, to 4.43. After her record-setting weekend, Unroe has the fourth-most digs per set in the SEC, even though Florida ranks last in the conference and 256th in the nation in that category. Coach Mary Wise said her squad needs Unroe to remain the anchor for the defense as the rest of the back line continues to struggle. After Fridays 3-2 win against Arkansas, Wise said the Gators counted on Unroes defense. It was a match that theres no way we can win if we didnt dig balls and Taylor stepped in and made some great digs, Wise said. She took care of the routine ones, and yet I would tell you that theres six or seven that she would say, I should have those. Thats the evolution of Taylor now in her second season. Unroes SEC Defensive Player of honor for the Gators since middle blocker Cassandra Anderson won it as a junior on Nov. 1, 2010. Last year, as a freshman, Unroe earned SEC Freshman of the Week both awards since Elyse Cusack won Freshman of the Week twice in 2006 and Defensive Player of the Week four times, the last coming in 2009. Wise said her team continues to needs similar performances from Unroe whenever the Gators go on the road. She said the outcome of the game depends on how Unroe plays. You dont win without your libero playing well, she said. It just doesnt happen.
