arilyn Margolis Maughan was too excited to be sad when she helped her daughter Mandy move into Syracuse University — her alma mater — as a freshman. Watching her daughter’s first-year transition wasn’t emotional for Marilyn until she closed the door to Mandy’s empty room before she left Flint Hall for the summer. The door tag Mandy’s resident adviser had placed there at the begin-

ning of the year caught her eye. She read the words “Welcome, Mandy!” and began to cry. “Up until that point I was just so excited for her. I was just so happy and I never really had time to have any other thoughts. Just in that moment it brought me back to so many other places,” she said. To Marilyn, Flint Hall wasn’t just her daughter’s home-away-from-home as a freshman. Flint was the same place she had called home more than 30 years earlier during her own freshman year. It was

the place she met the people she still calls her best friends and the place she met her husband, Tom Maughan. This Friday through Sunday, SU will host this year’s Family Weekend, with events planned on campus for students, siblings, parents and grandparents. Some families, like the Maughans, include generations of Syracuse alumni who share similar memories of campus and a common passion for the Orange, building SU into their family histories.

SNAP cuts to affect more Orange suspends kicker after arrest than 47 million Americans By Stephen Bailey Asst. Sports Editor

By Rahimon Nasa Staff Writer

Low-income families dependent on the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program will have to tighten their budgets as the $5 billion cut to the program goes into effect this Friday. The cuts will affect more than 47 million Americans, including 22 million children, according

to a report from the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, a nonpartisan think tank. This is also the first time in history that benefits from the program will be cut for every recipient, the center stated. SNAP benefits were increased during the economic recession in 2009 with the American Recovery

Syracuse suspended kicker Ryan Norton for the Orange’s game against Wake Forest on Saturday following his arrest late Friday morning, SU Athletics confirmed Wednesday night. “Ryan Norton ryan norton has been sus-

pended for Syracuse’s game against Wake Forest due to a violation of team rules,” SU head coach Scott Shafer said in a statement. “He will return for the following game.” Norton was charged with resisting arrest and underage possession of alcohol at 2:05 a.m. on Friday, according to police reports. Norton took over the starting job for Ross Krautman against Wagner on Sept. 14 after the senior suffered a season-ending, hip-related

injury. Norton has converted 4-of6 field goals this season and 17-of-18 extra points. Shafer said in early October that punter Riley Dixon would serve as the emergency kicker should Norton be unable to play. Dixon, who made the team as a walk-on in 2011, has not kicked a field goal or extra point in his collegiate career. @Stephen_ Bailey1

SU to offer winter web courses By Zane Warman Staff Writer

Syracuse University is creating a way for students to earn credits before they even return to campus in the spring. Starting on Nov. 13, students can enroll in one of three fully accredited online courses taught by SU professors through the Winterlude program. Winterlude courses are open to any student, according to its website. Winterlude was made possible by teachers who were willing to take part in the pilot program, said Bea Gonzalez, dean of University College, in an email. From these three courses, she wishes to build on the Winterlude program to meet “an evergrowing demand” for online options from students. The program will run from Dec. 16 through Jan. 10, three days before the spring semester begins. Students who enroll can choose from three classes. The classes are in the College of Arts and Sciences and the College of Visual and Performing Arts. Art 300/500: “Portfolio Online: Art in America” examines the global inf luence of American art and helps students develop art portfolios. PHI 251: “Logic” involves learning about logic as a formal language as well as

“Online faculty have hours, have chat times, and are available by email throughout the course.” Bea Gonzalez

syntax, semantics and pragmatics. CRS 327: “Speechwriting” will teach students how to write persuasive speeches. Students who wish to enroll will have to pay for the specific classes. The price to take a Winterlude course is $3,111 for fulltime undergraduate students. For matriculated graduate students, is will cost $3,882. Needbased financial aid is available, Gonzalez said.

spencer bodian | asst. photo editor David Rubin filed a lawsuit against the town of Manlius after having his political lawn signs taken away for violating the town’s ordinance. The local law stated that campaign lawn signs could not be posted until 30 days before an election and had to be removed seven days later.

Former dean helps repeal ordinance preventing political free speech By Charlie Mastoloni Staff Writer

A former dean at the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications has succeeded in his attempt to repeal a law against political free speech in his community. David Rubin, who is currently a professor and former dean of Newhouse, fought against a law in Manlius, N.Y., a town about 10 miles away from Syracuse University. The ordinance stated that campaign lawn signs could not be

posted until 30 days before an election and must be removed seven days after the election, in addition to requiring a permit. Rubin said he remembered when the ordinance first came to his attention about five years ago. “We had some typical lawn signs up and one day I came back from Newhouse and the signs were gone. I asked my wife what happened and she said a code enforcer from the town of Manlius came to her and said the signs had to come down,”

he said. “I said to her, ‘I think this is unconstitutional.’” Rubin said he didn’t take any action immediately, but after the issue came up again outside Manlius, he addressed the issue through his column in The PostStandard. He said a group called the Center for Competitive Politics in Virginia read his article and offered to represent him for free and take the town of Manlius to court about the ordinance.

A little history

Rubin’s September 2012 guest column in The Post-Standard helped spark the debate regarding Manlius’ law. He said:

“What speech should be more protected by the First Amendment than a lawn sign or a handbill or a speech delivered from a soapbox in the public square that urges a vote for a candidate?”

Poet Billy Collins entertains audience with humor By Marlena Ahearn Contributing Writer

An eager crowd in Hendricks Chapel greeted two-time poet laureate Billy Collins with wild applause, only to learn that he had just become even more successful than they thought. As he was introduced by Brooks Haxton, an English professor, the audience learned mere minutes after Collins did that “Aimless

Love,” his latest collection, had made it to The New York Times Best Sellers List. Before Collins arrived and took the stage, the room started filling quickly, as early as 6 p.m. Nearly an hour and a half before Collins was expected to speak, the room was buzzing with quotes, favorite poems, talk of his work and speculation on what poems he would be sharing. A crowd of students, professors

and visitors from as far as Buffalo, N.Y., filled Hendricks Chapel. The crown applauded enthusiastically when Collins took the stage shortly before 8 p.m. Collins claimed his book’s inclusion on The New York Times Best Sellers List was a triumph not only for him, but a triumph for poetry. “I am thrilled by the news of The New York Times Best Sellers List. I mean, good for me,” Collins joked.

“But it’s good for poetry. It’s great that poetry is on this list.” Collins shared numerous poems from his latest collection, including “Cheerios,” a humorous commentary on being as old as Cheerios; “After the Funeral,” an anecdotal description of a conversation with a friend; “Oh, My God!” a crowdpleasing poem mocking teenage girls; and “Divorce,” one of his more

Legislatures respond too slowly to public acceptance of same-sex marriage


ecently, the Supreme Court of New Jersey said it would allow same-sex marriages to stand despite any attempt at appeal. In response, on Oct. 21, Gov. Chris Christie finally withdrew his appeal to outlaw same-sex marriage in New Jersey. New Jersey is now the 14th state to recognize — and provide state benefits to — couples in same-sex marriages. This is a small but important step in the fight for same-sex marriage in this country. It is also a message to the 36 states that still do not recognize same-sex marriages.However, it is discouraging that legislatures have been all but unresponsive to the fight for same-sex marriage, forcing courts to play an activist role. Conservative pundits are predicting that by withdrawing his appeal in New Jersey, Chris Christie severely damaged his presidential aspirations. But this is preposterous. Withdrawing his appeal does not imply that he changed or reversed his stance on same-sex marriage.

MICHAEL HACKER a chain reaction conservatively left For this same reason, Democrats and Independents should not rush to support the new “centrist” Chris Christie. Withdrawing his appeal had nothing to do with Christie acknowledging changing cultural norms nor did it have anything to do with a personal acceptance of gay rights. Most importantly, Chris Christie’s rejection of same-sex marriage does not reflect the changing views of Americans. Currently, 50 percent of the country supports same-sex marriage, with 43 percent in opposition and nearly 8 percent stating they do not know which side they’re on, according to the Pew Research Center. The data reveal that 65 percent

of people between the ages of 18 and 29 from both political parties support same-sex marriage. As is to be expected, the percentage in support of same-sex marriage decreases as the age of those surveyed increases. However, legislative inaction on the issue is forcing courts to take a lead role. Republicans in Congress and state legislatures are forcing the courts — normally last to respond to cultural changes — to take the role of lawmaking bodies in order to pass necessary reforms. In June, the Supreme Court of the United States ruled that the Defense of Marriage Act was unconstitutional. This made all same-sex marriages legal in the eyes of the federal government. Despite the positive implications of the Court’s ruling on DOMA, it did leave the ultimate decision on same-sex marriages up to the states. On Oct. 23, the Supreme Court in New Mexico heard arguments in a case that could determine whether New Mexico recognizes same-sex marriages. New Mexico Republican lawmakers filed the lawsuit, which points directly to a

widespread legislative failure regarding rights for same-sex couples. For comprehensive legislative change to take place in this important area, lawmakers will have to accept that past cultural norms are changing. The denial of marriage because of one’s sexual orientation is a violation of the equal rights granted to all citizens under our Constitution. Trying to pass off civil unions as equivalent to marriage is parallel to the “separate but equal” doctrine of the early 1900s. But this still does not give equal rights to all. Laws are meant to adjust to societal norms, not the other way around. But laws also reflect the beliefs of the lawmakers themselves. As the younger generation begins taking political office, expect a quick reversal of the current, prohibitive laws regarding samesex marriage. Michael Hacker is a senior political science major.

iTunes becomes obsolete as YouTube announces paid subscription music plan


s if the industry was not packed already, YouTube announced this past month its plan to release yet another paid subscription music service. Like Mp3 players made CDs obsolete, paid subscription music

services are on the verge of ending the need for song-purchasing digital music platforms such as iTunes. Similar to Spotify, Google Play and Rhapsody, YouTube, the world’s largest music search


digitally affected and discovery engine, will let customers watch videos and listen to music without advertising interruption for $10 a month. While subscription services are on the rise, Steve Jobs once believed that people wanted to own their music as opposed to renting it. Although Jobs’ model does not seem sustainable, his theory does have some truth to it: Currently in 2013, 10 years after its launch, iTunes has 26 million songs available in its store, is available in 119 countries and has revenue of $2.4 billion. But while the classic iTunes library service will not immediately disappear, evidence of its decline is certainly noticeable. According to a BusinessWeek article from April 2013, iTunes’ share of the $2.9 billion digital music market has decreased to 63 percent, its lowest since 2006. Also, its competitors are gaining on iTunes, causing even more of a problem for the once allpowerful-song-purchasing platform. Amazon now holds 22 percent of all U.S. music sales in the last several years. Millions of subscribers have signed up for Spotify, Rhapsody and Rdio, further taking away customers from iTunes. When you look at the business models of song-purchasing platforms versus music subscription services, it really is fairly simple to see why programs like iTunes are on their way out. iTunes now charges up to $1.29 per song, whereas music subscription services charge between $8-$10 a month for unlimited streaming. Economically, is it worth it to purchase 10 songs on iTunes for $12.90 when you can pay $10 for a month’s endless supply of music? Furthermore, digital integration has allowed people to do more throughout the day,

changing people’s expectations and the way they live. With smartphones, people expect to be entertained all the time. YouTube makes access to any song possible and with the way the radio operates, no song stays popular for long. I once heard a joke that the “Top 40 Radio Hits” ranking is where good songs go to die. However, this joke is not too far from the truth. Popular songs on popular radio stations are overplayed so much that most of them only last a few months. If people’s song perceptions are fluctuating this much, then a song-purchasing business model really does not make sense. And because it looks certain that subscription services will overtake music purchasing programs, many musicians and record labels are concerned that this transition will result in even less royalties than before. In a 99-cent download from iTunes, artists earn a percentage of the sale, typically between seven and 10 cents. In a subscription model, artists earn money based off the number of times a song is played. Right now, Spotify generally pays less than a penny per stream, meaning that for every million streams, an artist or record label is only collecting less than $10,000, making it very hard for professional musicians to survive. According to The New York Times, Sean Parker, a board member of Spotify and the creator of Napster, believes Spotify will eventually draw enough subscribers, returning sustainability to the music industry. Parker is hopeful for the industry’s future. However, looking at an extremely successful product like iTunes that appears to be in regression after only 10 years, Parker has obviously overlooked the perpetually changing nature of the music industry. More likely than not, in 10 years, music subscription services will probably end up in the same predicament that iTunes is in now.

SU should hold 2 Family Weekend events in fall semester to benefit students This Friday, hordes of families will descend upon the Hill for the 2013 Family Weekend. To disperse large crowds and allow students to better enjoy the event, Syracuse University should host two separate Family Weekends next fall. Family Weekend is beneficial for students. It offers a time for parents to visit their kids and attend a multitude of events. For example, the SU football game against Wake Forest University will be held in

Family Weekend is not only relevant to freshmen struggling to adjust to SU, but also to upperclassmen who need a break from the daily pressure of college. More options are needed for students to see their families. After all, families provide a special kind of relief that is hard to come by on a college campus.

family weekend from page 1

Tom lived across the hall from his future wife, then Marilyn Margolis, during their first year. The two met and became friends early in the year. In the spring — April 24, 1980, to be exact — Tom asked her to go with him to a Frank Zappa concert on campus. She said yes. “We may not be able to remember exactly what our anniversary is, but we never forget that date,” she said. Marilyn and Tom began dating after that concert. They played tennis together at the Women’s Building, and traveled to watch the SU lacrosse team play. They went to every concert that happened on campus, and the two didn’t miss a sporting event. The couple has been together ever since that first Frank Zappa concert, with the exception of the spring of Marilyn’s junior year when she studied abroad in London. During that time he sent her a letter every week. She still has each one tucked away, all tied together with a red ribbon. She fell in love at SU while she was falling in love with SU. “You go to a lot of colleges and you meet a lot of people, but when you go to Syracuse, it’s pretty hard not to fall in love with everything. The buildings, the people, the atmosphere — it’s the iconic collegiate experience in so many ways.” ••• Michael Margolis’ love for SU started with his older sister Marilyn. “I found it a very diverse school and I had a lot of fun, so Syracuse was my first choice. I really enjoyed all of the activities and the combination of academics, and social life just seemed really well-balanced,” he said. Michael fell in love with SU for many of the same reasons his sister did. But unlike his

sister, Michael did not meet his future spouse, Nancy Appel, during his freshman year: He’d met her the summer before his freshman year at a summer camp where they both worked as camp counselors. They stayed in touch as they went their separate ways in the fall. Nancy visited SU several times during that first year, and said those visits helped convince her to transfer to SU for her sophomore year. “Everyone was so much fun and so nice. Syracuse was just so fabulous, and I just thought I was wasting my time where I was, ” Nancy said. As students, Nancy and Michael took part in many of the same traditions that SU students maintain today. The two would sleep outside at the Dome for three or four nights to buy season tickets. They would go down to Marshall Street to eat wings at Varsity Pizza or to drink out of

school and there were so many nice people and they were so diverse. I always called it the bubble, but the bubble was open for everybody,” Michael said. ••• It has been more than 30 years since Marilyn and Tom Maughan and Michael and Nancy Margolis graduated from SU, but their Orange pride and their love for their alma mater hasn’t wavered. The experience, friendships and Orange pride they formed at Syracuse have helped them form a special family bond. They all live in Connecticut now, where they are known around town for constantly sporting Orange clothing in the heart of UConn territory. Nancy says her 16-year-old son is especially known for only wearing orange. “People see him and just call him ‘Syracuse.’ People in town know that we’re just die-hard Syracuse fans,” she said. “Syracuse holds a really, really big place in our hearts. Even to my parents, Syracuse was a family affair. Syracuse is one of those schools you can really get behind and you can just love.” Although they call Connecticut home now, the Maughan and the Margolis families still make time to come back and visit campus. Each time they come, they keep the same traditions, like going Dome-stomping, eating honeybuns and wings from Varsity, walking around campus and purchasing Orange apparel. “We just love coming. You know you drive up 81 and you see the Dome in the distance and everyone in the car gets chills,” Michael said. ••• Mandy Maughan grew up watching Syracuse basketball with her parents. Although Orange pride runs deep in her family, she says her parents weren’t an influential factor in her college search process. “They actually didn’t really want me to come here because they knew it was such a big party school,” Mandy said. “They were worried that I’d get distracted.” The junior biomedical engineering major debated between Syracuse and other schools with more emphasis on engineering, but she ultimately chose SU after visiting campus. “I came and I fell in love with campus. It was a perfect spring day. The snow was gone, the sun was out, and I just loved all the professors I met,” she said. Since then, Mandy has fallen in love with SU on her own. She has had her own experiences at SU as a member of Gamma Phi Beta, Phi Eta Sigma and the club swim team. She loves going to basketball games and the diversity on campus. There’s another experience Mandy shares with her parents: She met her boyfriend during her freshman year in Flint— the same place her parents met. “My parents think it’s funny and cute. All my friends jokingly make fun of us,” she said. Looking back, Mandy says she wouldn’t have wanted to go anywhere but SU. “Hearing about the history and stuff…I just feel connected to my family. I can start talking about basketball or whoever was here back then and I feel really connected with them. I just feel at home.”

Wardrobe change University of Colorado at Boulder encourages students to avoid offensive Halloween costumes By Tamara Rasamny


Staff Writer

he University of Colorado at Boulder has sent emails to students on campus advising them to avoid offensive costumes on Halloween. Although CU-Boulder will not be taking action against offensive costumes, the school is making an effort to raise awareness about the issue. This is the first year the university has done something like this, said Bronson Hilliard, assistant vice chancellor for strategic media relations, in an email. Other universities that have worked to spread similar messages include the University of Minnesota and Northwestern University. “Costumes that play up stereotypes based on race, class, national origin or gender, can — even if not intended to — be hurtful to real people in our community based on their backgrounds,” Hilliard said. The university would discourage students from dressing up in Native American costumes or blackface, for example, said Randy McCrillis, director of the Center for Multicultural Affairs at CU-Boulder. The initiative was meant to educate students about certain costumes that may be offensive to others, he said. “The goal was to raise awareness and educate our students about how to create a safe and inclusive community for all, and to make people aware — when they may not have been in the past — about certain stereotypical costumes, and how they are perceived by other students,” he said.

McCrillis and Hilliard both clarified this is simply a request for students to think twice before picking a stereotypical or racist costume, and not an official rule that will be implemented on campus. “There are no student conduct violations at play here, and there is no threat of punishing students at any level,” Hilliard said. Throughout this campaign, Hilliard said, students have had a mixed reaction to the school’s suggestions. But he explained that support from students, faculty, staff and alumni has encouraged to the university to continue the campaign. McCrillis said there has been a lot of dialogue on campus. He added that students have reacted positively to the campaign, as it raises issues students were unaware of before. Hilliard said the university is planning to continue the campaign next year. He also said he hopes communication about social complexities within the university’s diverse community will continue. “As for the future, we know our goals will be the same: to create an inclusive campus that is welcoming to all people,” Hilliard said. McCrillis and Hilliard said they both want students to educate themselves and think before putting on an offensive costume. McCrillis also said he hopes that during Halloween “students choose a costume that might celebrate and highlight someone’s culture, instead of stereotyping it.”

he said. He said the lawsuit got the town board’s attention, as “they knew they would lose in court.” In September, the town board called a meeting to discuss the ordinance and voted to repeal it.

and Reinvestment Act, according to New York state Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance’s website. Instead of continuing the benefits, the House of Representatives voted last month to let the boosted benefits expire. As of July 2013, there are 33,000 households in Onondaga County that receive SNAP benefits, said Sarah Hamersma, an assistant professor of public administration and international affairs in the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs. She said households dependent on SNAP can expect, at most, a 6 percent decrease in their benefits. The 2009 boost in SNAP benefits was meant to ease the financial burden of Americans during the recession, Hamersma said. “The main concern with scaling back SNAP is that the populations using the benefits tend to be those who have not yet experienced economic recovery from the recession,” she said. A reduction in the food stamp program

will also put pressure on organizations like soup kitchens and pantries that provide emergency food assistance, said Marjorie DeVault, undergraduate director of sociology at Maxwell. “In the current period of economic insecurity, it’s clear that many people need the help they get from the food stamp program,” DeVault said. The nationwide SNAP cuts will mean a $332 million cut for New York through

September 2014 that will affect 3,185,000 state residents, according to the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities’ report. Syeisha Byrd, director of the Office of Engagement Programs, said she worries

about the effect the cuts will have on families in the Syracuse community. Byrd grew up in a household that required assistance from SNAP in the Westside of Syracuse. She recalls that many of the single-parent households in her community required the assistance of the food stamp program. Although her parents were employed, their salaries were not enough to cover the costs of food for the family. This is an issue that persists today and will be exacerbated by the new cutbacks, she said. The center’s report indicated that with the cuts the benefits will average less than $1.40 per person per meal. One way Byrd hopes to help her community in the face of the new cuts is by emphasizing ways to get the most out of the money people are given for food, such as couponing. “Why not offer moms more ideas on how to save or how to stretch the dollar?” Byrd said. “I’ve been working with a few moms in the community and teaching them how to do that. It’s tough because when I think of food stamps I think of moms with a few children at home that really need that support.”

SU to join 4 universities in 2014 online course initiative By Caroline Strange Staff Writer

Starting next semester, Syracuse University students can enroll in three online classes offered by two other universities, as part of an initiative to expand course offerings at each school.  There is no additional charge for the classes and students will receive credit on their transcript, according to the website for the initiative, CourseShare. There are currently four universities participating in the pilot program. The universities include: Northeastern University, Brandeis University, George Washington University and University of Miami. But SU students can only take classes from Brandeis University and University of Miami next semester.   SU students will be able to enroll in these courses from other universities: REL 330: “Caribbean Religion,” RVTM 101: “Foundations of Virtual Management Across Cultures and Geographies” and RHIN 110: “Perspectives on Health and Medical Information,” according to the CourseShare website. SU will offer REL 103: “Religion and Sports” and REL 165: “The Islamic Tradition” through CourseShare. Philip Arnold, who is an associate professor of religion at SU, will teach the religion and sports class. But George Washington University and Brandeis University do not accept the class. Arnold said some universities — and, until recently, even the religion department at SU— have thought of his class as “fluff,” so he wasn’t surprised that not all four other universities

accepted his class. But the class has proven popular among students, with more than 200 students enrolled last spring, said Allison Vincent, functional business analyst at University College. But the online section, offered with CourseShare, will have a maximum enrollment of 25 students, she said. Although not every school accepts every class, the only course SU does not accept from the other schools is “Information Policy,” which George Washington University offers. The courses were chosen to have broad interest while highlighting a local specialty from the school offering the course, said Eileen Strempel, assistant vice president for academic advancement at SU, in an email. “This was an idea generated amongst the provosts of the participating institutions, and our provost Eric Spina was especially supportive of the idea of collaborating across institutions,” Strempel said. Students can find information about registering on the CourseShare website, Strempel said. Currently, the CourseShare program is an experiment for the institutions involved, Paul Berman, George Washington University’s vice provost for online education and academic innovation, said in an email. Berman said he does not expect large numbers of participants since it is only a pilot program. He added the goal is to see how it works and determine whether to expand the program in the future.

serious poems. Collins is known for his humor, though he has some more solemn poems. “But tragedy is so claustrophobic, comedy is so relatable,” he said. Collins, appreciative of the uproarious laughter of the audience, didn’t take himself too seriously. He joked about the creative process and the temperament of poets. He quotes William Butler Yeats, saying, “A poet never speaks directly as someone at the breakfast table does.” After Collins finished reading several poems, the crowd applauded for minutes. He nodded humbly at first, and then rolled his eyes, bowing, never taking himself too seriously or taking the audience for granted. After the recitation of his poems, with anecdotal stories in between, he stayed for a book signing in the foyer of Hendricks. He greeted each person who had books to sign and briefly talked about each person’s favorite poems and memorable parts of his lecture.

Zach Lattimore, a student in the College of Arts and Sciences, said he attended the lecture to get class extra credit but was further enticed by Collins’ humor. “I’m here for a lyrics and poetry class but I

really liked his writing and was looking forward to his readings and humor,” Lattimore said. Gianna Whitver, a senior in Arts and Science, said she was more than happy to attend. Upon hearing a poet laureate would be visiting as part of the University Lecture Series,

she made sure to be there. “I knew of his work and was excited to see a poet laureate. Hearing him speak was an added bonus and I loved ‘Cheerios’ and ‘Lanyard,’” she said. Rachel Goldman, a freshman in the School

of Information Studies, said she loved the laughter and light-heartedness of the event. Said Goldman: “I learned of Collins my junior year in high school and have been hugely looking forward to his presentation.”

Theater presents live drag performance during ‘Hocus Pocus’


By Kristin Ross Feature Editor

hree witches have flown into town to put a spell on you this weekend at the Red House Arts Center. The Red House is showing a special screening of the holiday classic “Hocus Pocus” at 8 p.m. on Halloween and Nov. 1. But besides screening the movie, the theater decided to add a live performance aspect to the event as well — with a little bit of a twist. “We could normally screen ‘Hocus Pocus’ like anyone else would, but we decided that instead of just screening it, we’d play the movie and then have the three witches dressed up in drag performing the musical numbers along with the movie as we’re screening it,” said Rachel Boucher, the Red House’s marketing director. “It’s really different and really fun at the same time. It gives the movie a new life, almost.”

The story of “Hocus Pocus” follows the three Sanderson sisters as they return to life for the first time since the 17th century Salem witch trials. Three kids and a talking cat summoned them back to life. The witches must now attempt to cast a spell on the town to regain their youth before their time is up and they must go back underground once again. This event is the second installment of the theater’s Moonshine Movie Madness series catered to adults, in which all ticket sales include one free alcoholic beverage. However, for this family-friendly production of “Hocus Pocus,” all attendees will still be given a free drink along with their ticket stubs, but underage guests will be offered nonalcoholic beverages. Boucher, who graduated from Syracuse University in 2012 with a bachelor’s degree in vocal performance, said there is also audience participation, similar to a “Rocky Horror Picture

Show” screening, so that the Sanderson sisters are not the only ones enjoying themselves that night. Attendees are encouraged to come dressed in costumes, and then they are given participation kits including items like streamers to throw at the actors; streamers come with instructions of when to use them. Boucher said she is unsure of whether “Hocus Pocus” has ever been performed like this before, but she credits the Red House executive director as its brainchild. Boucher said it worked because of the director’s extensive amount of creativity and knack for thinking outside of the box — something she said is not uncommon for productions at the Red House. “We try to do a little something different for every show that we do here,” she said. “If you come see a show at the Red House, you’ll never see the same show you saw somewhere else.” @kriskross22

Film Screenings: Alfred Hitchcock’s “Spellbound” and “Rebecca” Where: Joyce Hergenhan Auditorium, Newhouse III When: Thursday, 6:30 p.m. How much: free Get in a spooky mindset with an Alfred Hitchcock double feature. “Spellbound” and “Rebecca” will be screened as part of the 50th anniversary celebration of the Belfer Audio Archive. “Spellbound” is a love story set in a mental asylum, and “Rebecca” is a love story in its own right, filled with plenty of mystery and thrilling twists and turns.

Shifty’s Halloween Party Where: 1401 Burnet Ave. When: Thursday 9:30 p.m. – 1:30 a.m. How much: No cover charge Shifty’s Bar & Grill, known for its beer, wings and live music, is hosting its 8th annual Halloween celebration on Thursday.

Southern Tier Pumking ale bewitches high alcohol content into a sweet treat By Avery Hartmans Staff Writer

As students, we look forward to Halloween for weeks — planning out our costumes and anticipating the wild parties. And when the big day (or six, if you go to Syracuse University) finally arrives, we do it big. So when it came time to commemorate my final college Halloweek, I had to choose the best Halloween beer I could possibly find. The king of all pumpkin beers, you might say. The search led me to Southern Tier Pumking ale. I have heard legends of this beer from friends, random Twitter followers and even my mom for weeks now. I have searched high and low for it, but Beer Mecca, aka Wegmans, doesn’t carry that variety of Southern Tier, at least not in Syracuse. I caught a glimpse of a bartender cracking open a 22-ounce of it at Al’s Wine & Whiskey Lounge a few weeks ago, but I still couldn’t find a way to buy a few bottles to take home. Suffice it to say that the Pumking has been eluding me. So I outsourced to the brewery itself and have been hoarding a lone bottle in my fridge, waiting for the opportune time. Even though I’d had weeks to mentally prepare for the magic of the Pumking, I did not have my game face on for this one. I never expected something so flavorful, so full of spices or so full of alcohol. Let’s just say the Pumking won. It’s not even that the 8.6 percent ABV got to me — although honestly I did get a little tipsy. It was this beer’s delicious, intoxicating flavor,

beer bites which was overwhelming from the time I popped the cap off to the very last drop. The Pumking is so flavorful that you can very clearly smell it from approximately 3 feet away. I felt like I was getting an autumnal contact high just from sniffing it, and I was almost afraid to drink it. After all, the bottle claims the beer is bewitched and was “brewed with pagan spirit.” I wholeheartedly believe that because, wow, this beer is like nothing I’ve ever tasted before. So many flavors hit you at once — it’s almost difficult to distinguish what’s what. But then you start to pick up the taste of caramel malts and the real, pureed pumpkin and the two varieties of hops. It kind of tastes how jumping into a pile of leaves feels: crisp, spicy and just a little bit suffocating. Don’t get me wrong, this beer is amazing — but it’s definitely not for the casual beer drinker. It’s overwhelming in nearly every respect, and it deserves to be sipped and savored, not chugged out of an orange Solo cup. While I did have enough class not to drink it out of a plastic cup, I unfortunately didn’t have a goblet to sip it from like the bottle suggests. All in all, the Pumking was sensational — a lot to handle, a little intense and extremely alcoholic. But it’s Halloween, after all. Go big or go home. @averyhartmans

Columnist to fend off Halloween hangover with sunglasses, turtlenecks

’ve always felt like I wasn’t celebrating Halloween the right way. But maybe that has something to do with my lack of cool costumes throughout my life. For example, somewhere out there are pictures of the fat, pudgy child version of me, wearing a giant yellow toucan costume. I thought it was cool at the time, but for some reason it has lost its luster. Also, I may or may not have wet myself in said costume, and that has a way of tainting holidays. Even as a grown man who has control of his bladder, my costume choices still suck. This year, though, I decided to do Halloween right. But then I was promptly reminded that Family Weekend is this weekend. Really, Syracuse University? On the most sacred of weekends? Parents shouldn’t have to witness the full brunt of college Halloween. That poor girl dressed as a sexy angel, taking that walk of shame, was once just her parents’ regular little angel. How are we as college students supposed to make poor decisions at night when we have to wake up at nine the next morning to eat breakfast — featuring a whole lot of cantaloupe — with our parents? Don’t fret, though, because I’ve thought the whole thing out already so you don’t have to, making any questions your parents may ask much easier to answer. Everybody knows the key to getting rid of a particularly nasty hangover is a combination of sunglasses, coffee and turtlenecks. These can be easily explained away. When your dear parents ask you why you’re wearing sunglasses indoors, explain

christian unkenholz

that guy to them that in your climate change lecture you learned that UV rays are the cause of rampant blindness. But make sure you throw in a bunch of science words like “hypothesize” and “phosphorus” to really drive home the point that you know your stuff and you’re not just hiding from the harsh light of the morning sun. When asked why you’re guzzling an absurd amount of coffee, simply tell them about how you were up all night writing a huge psychology paper in the library. Make sure to elaborate that it’s not even due this week, but you find Freud’s theories so interesting that you just couldn’t wait to get started. In their minds, they’ll think to themselves, “Wow what a profound adult we’ve created. That’s definitely not someone who was just twerking up a storm last night.” Now comes to the harder part of Halloweekend debauchery to cover up: the dreaded hickey. My suggestion is to simply bust out all of the turtlenecks possible. Wear two, or even three, and make it a new fashion statement. Then, maybe layer that with a scarf. You won’t look silly at all. You’ll look like an actor getting ready for a headshot. Your

parents will be so proud. Or you could just slow it down for just this one weekend. Who says we can’t dress in costumes any other day of the year? Besides, don’t we owe our parents, the people who made all of this possible, not to be a hungover mess when they come to visit? Plus, Halloween is on a Thursday this year. That gives us one day to sober up before the cantaloupe begins. Christian Unkenholz is a sophomore public relations and political science major.

Syracuse faces one of the toughest defensive linemen in the country on Saturday in Wake Forest nose guard Nikita Whitlock. At only 5 feet, 11 inches and 250 pounds, Whitlock uses his speed to get into the backfield — as evidenced by his 1.7 tackles for loss per game this season — good for seventh in the nation. “You really can’t block him with one guy very effectively,” SU head coach Scott Shafer said during the Atlantic Coast Conference coaches’ teleconference Wednesday. “I love his motor. I actually love watching him play, I hate to say it. “I wish he wasn’t playing in this game coming up, but he’s fun to watch play.” Whitlock also has 52 total tackles and seven sacks this season to lead a Demon Deacons defense that has held its last three opponents to 15.7 points per game. SU center Macky MacPherson will draw him as a main assignment, but Shafer indicated he plans on providing help on most plays. “You can’t try to create too many one-onones with him because he does a great job with that,” Shafer said. With the Orange sitting at 3-4 and a visit to No. 3 Florida State in two weeks, stopping Whitlock and Wake Forest will be crucial to SU’s bowl picture in its first ACC season.

Shafer pleased with Davis’ progress Shafer said linebacker Dyshawn Davis continued treatment on his ankle early Wednesday morning. Davis practiced on Tuesday and Shafer said he “ran around pretty good.” “He’s done a nice job staying up on the treatment,” Shafer said. Davis suffered a high right ankle sprain in the first half of Syracuse’s win over North Carolina State. He didn’t return to that game and missed the following week’s 56-0 loss at Georgia Tech. If he plays, Davis will likely make life more difficult for Wake Forest’s offense. Demon Deacon head coach Jim Grobe said the Syracuse defense likes to blitz frequently, which may create problems for Wake Forest’s pass-heavy offense. “They give you problems from a defensive standpoint,” Grobe said. “They pressure you from a lot of different areas.” Grobe said Syracuse likes to mix up its coverages. Against Georgia Tech, the Orange played in a 3-4 defense, starting Marqez Hodge. Hodge finished with 12 tackles in his first career start. With defensive tackle John Raymon out for the season, Zian Jones will likely see more time for the Orange. Having Davis back would be crucial for SU as it looks to exploit and fluster Wake Forest. Davis is a critical component of the blitzing scheme. He has 16 solo tackles, 2.5 for a loss, on the season. Everything Shafer has said has hinted at the fact that Davis will play Saturday. Said Shafer: “We’re ramping him up each day and looking forward to getting him back on the field.”

Orange seniors look to finish careers undefeated at home By Tyler Piccotti Staff Writer

The senior class for No. 2 Syracuse (14-2, 3-2 Atlantic Coast) has never lost a home game at J.S. Coyne Stadium. Some of those 35 games were easier than others, but the end result was always the same. However, one contest has managed to stand apart from the rest — last year’s 1-0 overtime victory over North Carolina. “Last year, the win against UNC was really cool,” midfielder Leonie Geyer said. “We had nothing to lose in that game, and we really didn’t expect to win and to get the goal in the last minute was really exciting.” If history repeats itself this Saturday, Geyer and her fellow upperclassmen will have a storybook ending to their final regular season. Geyer, Laura Hahnefeldt, Anna Crumb and Adrian Chambers will be honored prior to the Orange’s 1 p.m. Senior Day showdown with No. 3 North Carolina (14-3, 3-2) for all their accomplishments on and off the field. There’s plenty to remember: a trip to the final four last year, a Big East tournament championship in 2012, two All-Big East First Team selections and 45 goals among the four of them. But the overtime win over the Tar Heels on Sept. 1, 2012, is the one they seem to

the media, he was well spoken, but was otherwise quiet. In his later years, he became a more gregarious person. He got into acting, wrote an autobiography and made public speaking appearances. He has butted heads with members of the Cleveland Browns front office and has been in and out of the organization. “Jim really wasn’t that way so much in college,” Zimmerman said. “He was kind of quiet and reserved to himself.” Brown’s senior season was a masterpiece. He was an All-American and led Syracuse to a Cotton Bowl appearance. The only thing missing was a Heisman Trophy. It wasn’t until Brown’s successor, Ernie Davis, joined the Orangemen that a black player finally won the Heisman. “I think he was a little bit ahead of his time,” Zimmerman said, “because I think that he really deserved to be in the running for the Heisman Trophy. “I think looking back, a lot of people thought that Jim Brown probably didn’t get a fair shake as far as consideration for the Heisman because he was an African American.” ••• The legend of Jim Brown is complex. So much has been lost in time that only stories remain. He’s as much myth as he is an actuality. He was the consummate athlete. A football, basketball, lacrosse and track star in college. A baseball star in high school. Simmons said he’s even an excellent golf and tennis player. A typical spring day at Syracuse for Brown consisted of spring football practice in the morning, followed by lacrosse practice, topped off with some running with the track team. It wasn’t hard, Brown said. “It did make you think, though.” Another story says that a cradling rule

remember most. Crumb said that along with the Big East championship, that victory will forever stand out. “Just being able to do something like that at home was pretty great,” Crumb said in an email. Even head coach Ange Bradley called it one of her more memorable moments with the soon-departing quartet. “It definitely goes up there,” she said. However, Bradley prefers to look at the entirety of their collegiate tenures as Senior Day approaches, rather than just one game against a tough opponent. In the case of Geyer and Hahnefeldt, Bradley commended the growth of their chemistry with the team. “For Laura and Leo, our team does a pregame thing every game, and their freshman year, they would sit there and not pay attention,” she said. “They’d pick at their fingernails and think it’s the stupidest American thing ever. “Now, in their senior year, they’re running the game.” Additionally, Bradley praised Chambers’ ability to overcome two hip surgeries and a fracture and still be a valued part of the team. She also said Crumb has perhaps undergone the biggest transformation of anyone. “Seeing her grow from freshman to senior

was established because of Brown. The bruising running back, always a downhill runner and never shying away from contact, played lacrosse the exact same way he carried the football. He pinned his stick to his chest — ball in the pocket — and charged through the defense. That’s the myth. The reality is that he hates the legend. He needed no extra advantages. He was considered

“I think he was a little bit ahead of his time because I think that he really deserved to be in the running for the Heisman Trophy. ... I think looking back, a lot of people thought that Jim Brown probably didn’t get a fair shake as far as consideration for the Heisman because he was an African American.” Chuck Zimmerman

Former Syracuse quarterback

one of the greatest athletes to ever walk the earth. He played like any other player, keeping the ball away from his body. “I find it offensive,” Brown says, “because it says you don’t have the skill.” He ran with the power and elegance he took on the football field and with a bizarre underhand shot to complement his massive frame; he

the Coyne turf and deliver a win for the home crowd, just as they have done the last 35 times. And doing so against their conference rival from the Tar Heel State would be all the more rewarding. It might even give them a new greatest hit to add to their Syracuse playlist. “Especially on Saturday now, Senior Day, where we’re unbeaten so far, and it would be incredible to leave Syracuse without being beaten on that field,” Geyer said. “It just gives me more motivation to win.”

was virtually impossible to guard. But as the sport grew in popularity, his presence in it deteriorated. It was his wife Monique Brown who found the opportunity for him to return. She knew his love for the sport and the enjoyment he would get out of being able to return home. It’s nothing major, especially with all his other ventures — he only makes it to a few games a year — but after he was gone for so long, he can once again be a representative of the sport. “He loved the game of lacrosse and said many times that it’s his favorite sport,” said Roy Simmons Jr., one of Brown’s lacrosse teammates at Syracuse. ••• To this day, Brown is closer with Simmons than anyone else from his days with the Orangemen. They chat frequently about lacrosse, college memories or whatever projects they’re working on. For Brown, that’s a lot of lacrosse, a lot of social ventures and sometimes a little bit of both. He just finished his second season as coowner of the New York Lizards and he’s back with the Cleveland Browns as a special adviser, but most of his work is out in the community. In 1988, he founded Amer-I-Can, an organization that helps young Los Angeles gang members get their lives on track. He and his wife are currently developing a Jim Brown Lacrosse League in Florida to introduce black children to the sport. The sport was always good to him. While he was a bit more of a loner on the football team, lacrosse welcomed him with open arms. Now he’s the sport’s highest-profile ambassador. “We made him comfortable,” said Simmons, who later became Syracuse’s most successful head coach. “The sport has never been racist. There’s never been a lot of blacks that play it because there’s no future in it.” Brown said he would have considered playing lacrosse instead of football, but there was no professional league at the time.

Brown said he used to go up to the Onondaga Reservation to play box lacrosse and get his fix when his career with the Orangemen ended. “We played because we loved the sport,” Brown said. “There was no pro level. It just cut off.” ••• In many ways a Lizards game is like any other professional sporting event. Youth teams get a chance to showcase their talents before games. Parking costs $20. The Lizards’ dance team parades onto the field dressed in skimpy outfits during breaks, even in the pouring rain. “Are you kidding?” Brown says in the almost clichéd fashion, expected of a 77-year-old man. But the children that play in those youth games spend the actual game parading the sideline in relatively cheap seats. The overpriced parking is easy to skirt with an array of parks and other athletic facilities surrounding Icahn. The dance team interacts with the athletes on Twitter — a strict taboo for most professional organizations. But this is where Brown belongs. Back in his hometown. Back with the sport that has been his solace. His box at Icahn Stadium is essentially just a platform at the top of the bleachers. He sits right against the front rail. The people with the worst seats in the house can sit just inches away from the Hall of Famer. He likes to watch the games and all the Syracuse players on the roster, including former All-American midfielder JoJo Marasco — but only “if they’re good.” And he’s just as happy to spend most of the evening posing for pictures and signing autographs. One fan, a Cleveland native, even plopped down next to him and spent an entire quarter talking about the Browns. In the less glamorous world of professional lacrosse, Brown is an enigma, but he’s home. “It’s incredible,” Marasco said. “He’s just — he’s a legend, so it’s great to see that guy around.”

be happy if we’re not in the ACC tournament, so ultimately we’re looking to win a couple more games.” SU’s offense ranks fourth in the ACC in goals scored, but an ill-timed slump has struck its attack of late. The Orange has been shut out in its last three conference matches — a frustrating tie against last-place Pittsburgh, and 1-0 losses to North Carolina and Maryland. SU’s last goal in ACC play was at Boston College on Oct. 8. Thirty-six shot attempts and 337 minutes of conference play ago. “I think we need to just finish our opportunities, get more opportunities and we’ll be fine,” forward Alex Halis said. Though the Orange’s attack has stalled, the team won’t deviate from McIntyre’s style of play, the head coach said. Syracuse will maintain its approach, which stresses possession and ball movement. Tactically, McIntyre said, the next two matches won’t be much different. “I think we’ll go out like we do every game: to try to set up to win games,” he said. For a team that has come close on many occasions to finding the back of the net in recent ACC competition, Syracuse has not been so lucky. McIntyre pointed to the instances where the ball could have bounced Syracuse’s way just as easily. “The one that hits the post in the last game maybe hits the post and goes in. Maybe the one that’s cleared off the line against UNC maybe crosses the line,” McIntyre said. “There’s a very thin line between winning

and losing games at this level, so maybe a little bit of luck.” Instead of losing faith or breaking into desperation mode after four straight ACC matchups without a win, the head coach is instead

“Our goal this year is to make the ACC tournament, and that’s still in our hands. I still think we’ve got a lot of soccer ahead of us. But we won’t be happy if we’re not in the ACC tournament, so ultimately, we’re looking to win a couple more games.” Ian McIntyre

reassured by his team’s ability to compete with such a challenging league — one that features two of the last four national champions, McIntyre pointed out. Still, the Orange will have to step “Syracuse soccer” up a notch in the next eight days to dig itself out of its 11th-place hole, and it’ll have to start Friday. “It’s late in the season now. We can’t go back,” Halis said. “We just got to go forward and look to these next two games, and hopefully get two wins.” @PhilDAbb

of right now in terms of playing time,” Boeheim said. “That works itself out usually. We’ll see how things progress, but it’s important to have depth and we have good depth at the forward and center positions.” Additional preseason practice time allotted by the NCAA this year has helped prepare the freshmen to acclimate to college play more quickly. Boeheim estimated the Orange is holding an additional 21 preseason practices this year, in addition to its four-scrimmage Canada tour in August. Roberson, who was not academically cleared until Sept. 5, was the only player unable to make the trip. “It helps us a lot,” Ennis said. “We have different classes of guys. We have some seniors, juniors, and a lot of freshmen so being able to practice earlier, along with the Canada trip, is going to help us a lot getting everyone comfortable.” Ennis showcased his smooth ball handling and nifty passing ability at Orange Madness on Oct. 18, f lashing the point guard play that made him the No. 5 point guard recruit in the country. Teammates and coaches have been immediately impressed with his poise and leadership, already taking command of the team without hesitation. “He impressed me a lot, even in Canada, with the passes he makes,” center DaJuan Coleman said. “He is real smooth. He makes all the right plays.” For the rest of the freshmen, their roles are less defined. Patterson is working his way into the rotation while Roberson — who said at media

day he was still growing accustomed to his teammates — and Johnson have been matching up with Fair and Jerami Grant in practice. Stuck behind the pair of athletic wings, they’ll likely be used sparingly, if at all, in Boeheim’s regular rotation. “B.J. has had really good practices thus far,” Boeheim said. “He’s one of the better shooters on our team. He’s very long and has a ton of athleticism. At the same time, he’s continuing to

learn and progress as we go.” Patterson and Ennis agreed the biggest adjustment to the college game has been the speed of play, but at Orange Madness both appeared comfortable. Johnson and Roberson looked quick on the wing. And Patterson and Johnson participated in the post-scrimmage dunk contest, showcasing their athletic ability. On Friday, the Orange’s highly touted freshman class will get its next chance to reveal its potential. Get your cameras ready. @Stephen_Bailey1

SU to open year with scrimmage By Stephen Bailey Asst. Sports Editor

Tyler Roberson grinned as he peered over a photographer’s shoulder at Syracuse media day on Oct. 18. The photographer was scrolling through portrait shots of other freshmen: Ron Patterson flexing his biceps. Tyler Ennis crossing his arms. B.J. Johnson holding his hands behind his back. With each progressive click, Roberson let out a chuckle. His smile widened. And when the roll was through, Roberson took a basketball in each hand and extended his arms to each side, showcasing his 7-foot-1 wing span. Syracuse fans around the country share the excitement that Roberson emitted. The Orange’s freshman class ranks 11th in the country and will make its preseason debut when the Orange hosts Holy Family in a scrimmage on Friday at 7 p.m. Ennis is expected to see far and away the most court time of any of the freshmen, as Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim expects Ennis will play 38 minutes per game this year. Roberson and Johnson are in line behind a slew of talented frontcourt stars including C.J. Fair. Patterson may be the fourth guard for SU behind Ennis, Trevor Cooney and Michael Gbinije.
