proposed the fee increase for 2011-12following recent University budget cuts.The Board of Trustees and the UNC-system Board of Governors approvedthe fee increase.The Board of Governors approvedthe measure after the fee failed to pass a February 2011 student referendum.Pinkney said the students’ vote was nottaken into account because of a communi-cation failure between administrators.“Ideally, the fee would’ve never beenpresented to the Board of Governors,”Pinkney said. Administrators decided that trying toreimburse students was not feasible anddecided to let student government lead-ers allocate the extra revenue.Pinkney said tracking down each stu-dent would have cost more money thanthey were charged for. Administrators are working to putin safeguards to ensure that such anadministrative communication errordoes not occur again.“Without an established protocol, there was a communication gap,” Pinkney said.“That’s being addressed so this won’thappen in the future.”Student Body President WillLeimenstoll said Pinkney came to studentleaders as soon as the error was found.

Students charged extra $3 in fees
Trustees to meet amidstongoing controversy 
By Jessica New
Staff Writer
University officials and studentgovernment are working to correct anerroneous $3 increase in the 2011-12student activities fee. Administrators caught the error in April and alerted student government, but the fee had already been charged tostudents.Last year, a $1.50 additional fee wascharged to all students each semester,leading to an extra $76,086 in revenuefor the student activities fund.Dwayne Pinkney, vice provost forfinance and academic planning, saidthe Student Activities Fund Office

In the midst of ongoing investiga-tions into academic fraud at UNC, theUniversity community has pledged its sup-port for Chancellor Holden Thorp ahead of this week’s Board of Trustees meeting.The discussion of academic integrity and controversy stemming from the 2010NCAA investigation of the football team will be a small part of the board’s agenda.Thorp said the board will focus heavily on 21st Century Vision — a planning andfundraising initiative announced in May.He said despite the negative atten-tion the University has gotten in recentmonths, it had the second most success-ful fundraising year in fiscal year 2012.“This shows people believe in theUniversity and our ability to be on top of these issues,” Thorp said.In May, Thorp released theUniversity’s report that cited irregulari-ties in record keeping and teaching prac-tices in the Department of African and Afro-American Studies.The State Bureau of Investigation andthe UNC-system Board of Governors areconducting their own probes into thedepartment, but UNC administratorshave made policy changes in hopes of preventing further issues.Thorp said trustees are in the processof identifying an outside audit firm to cer-tify the effectiveness of controls and policy 
Students will be credited in2013-14, rather than beingreimbursed for charges.Board members have saidthey support Thorp and theproposed 21st Century Vision.

pparently, bear cubs also need some serious retail therapy, too.Last Saturday, a female bear cub walked through the doors at theSears store in the Pittsburgh Mill Mall in Frazer, Pa. The cub was firstsighted around 8:30 p.m. in the parking lot, where people were chas-ing the bear with their cars. It ran toward the mall.Officials evacuated all stores, and wildlife conservation officers were called in.They caught the bear between the double doors and shot her with tranquilizers.But the animal was still able to get into the store and wandered around the mallfor an hour before finally falling asleep.Officials still don’t know where the bear came from and haven’t decided whatto do with it.

UNC study finds link between dads’ jobs and birth defects
UNC researchers conducted a study that found certain jobs held by men before they conceive a child can increase the risk of birth defects.The study found that about one-third of jobs, including health careprofessionals and firefighters, did not correspond to increased risk of  birth defects. However, children of dads who worked as artists, pho-tographers or landscapers had increased risk for specific birth defects.The results of the study will be published this week in Occupationaland Environmental Medicine.UNC professor Tania Desrosiers, of the Gillings School of GlobalPublic Health, led the study.

By Chessa DeCain
City Editor
The beginning of UNC’s fallsemester might still be a monthaway, but town and University officials are already preparing forstudents to move back into town.On Aug. 20, the door-to-doorportion of the Good NeighborInitiative will take off in theNorthside, Pine Knolls, Cameron-McCauley and Davie Circle neigh- borhoods.The Good Neighbor Initiativeis a collaborative effort betweenUniversity and town officials tohelp strengthen relationships between town and student resi-dents.Catherine Lazorko, publicinformation officer for the town,said volunteers will spend the day  walking door-to-door to speak  with both new and more perma-nent residents of the neighbor-hoods.“It’s just a matter of educat-ing new residents to the area about how to take care of certainthings,” Lazorko said. Aaron Bachenheimer, directorof fraternity and sorority life andcommunity involvement at UNC,said he wants to make sure stu-dents are aware of certain townordinances that could be unknow-ingly violated.“It’s amazing what we think is common knowledge, is notalways common knowledge,Bachenheimer said.He said the students he talksto don’t always know when they could be in violation of ordi-nances.Bachenheimer said problemsthat arise typically deal withtrash, parking, noise and over-occupancy.“Noise is probably the issue we hear most about in terms of impacting the quality of life,” hesaid.But, Bachenheimer said, trashis a close second. He said many students don’t realize they alsoneed to take their trash bins back from the curb by 7 p.m. thesame day their trash is picked up.Otherwise, they are in violation of the trash ordinance.“It’s not students intention-ally trying to be bad neighbors,”Bachenheimer said. “It’s just notalways realizing what the expecta-tions are.”“We want to welcome stu-dents to the community,” Megan Wooley, housing and neighbor-hood services planner for thetown, said. Wooley said feedback for theprogram, now in its ninth year,has been very positive in the past.“I think the students find theinfo helpful,” she said.Though the door-to-doorpart typically remains the same, Wooley said they still need to talk to returning students each year.“It’s tricky,” Wooley said.“Because a lot of students wholive here one year will be gone thenext.”“It’s just letting new waves of students know about these issues,”she said.Bachenheimer said they typi-cally have 45 to 60 volunteers forthe door-to-door walk — about a third of whom are UNC students.He said one of the goals of this year’s initiative is to makesure new residents know aboutNorthside and Pine Knolls’ new parking regulations, which will gointo effect Sept. 1.The new parking ordinancelimits residents to having only four cars parked on each lot.Residents found in violation of this could be fined $100 per day. A block party for all the neigh- borhoods will take place Sept.13 at the Hargraves Community Center, to encourage studentsand town residents to get to know each other. Free food will be pro- vided by Buns, McAlister’s Deliand Ben & Jerry’s.

 Louis Bissette is a member of the UNC-system Board of Governors. He will be chairing a five-member panel that is review-ing UNC-Chapel Hill’s investi- gation of academic fraud in the Department of African and Afro- American Studies.The panel was announced by former board chairwoman Hannah Gage and UNC-system President Thomas Ross at theboard’s June meeting. At its first meeting, the panel was charged with reviewing theUniversity’s investigation and evaluating subsequent policychanges.The panel is expected to meet in August and issue a report tothe full board by October.
Daily Tar Heel:
What promptedthe establishment of this panel?
Louis Bissette:
There had beena lot of questions to Ross fromthe Board of Governors about what was taking place and goingon. I think that everybody feltthat the board needed to take upa more detailed look, because it isa major interest to the state andto the UNC system that this bedone correctly.
DTH:
What is your impressionof the University’s handling of the situation?
LB:
The people handling theinvestigation are very good andcompetent people, and I think they’ve done a pretty good job.Now one of the things we’ll belooking at is to see some of theareas that they missed and thatthey look back and look a littledeeper into it.
DTH:
What questions do you stillhave after the first panel meeting?
LB:
One question that cameup is why did they restrict theirinvestigation to essentially 2007 to 2011. Is there any reason to go back any further and take a look at that? One other question wasthat a number of athletes in thatdepartment were interviewed inthat process, but no non-athletes were interviewed.

On Aug. 25, the Southern FolklifeCollection at Wilson Library will present lectures, music and an exhibition as part of the symposium, “The Banjo: Southern Roots, American Branches.”  Steve Weiss, curator for the collection, said the symposium will draw from the collec-tion’s extensive catalog of more than 40,000 LPs and CDs and 8 million feet of film. Hesaid the accompanying exhibit will also fea-ture six or seven historical instruments that trace the evolution of the banjo.The symposium will end with amusical performance featuring banjo players, including Dom Flemons of theCarolina Chocolate Drops. UNC rofessor of American Studies Robert Cantwell and UNC professor of American Literatureand Culture Philip Gura spoke to The Daily Tar Heel about the history of the five-string banjo. Both Gura and Cantwell will speak at the symposium.
Origins
Recently in Mali, West Africa, inves-tigators found an instrument called anakonting. Cantwell said the akonting isan ancestor of the five-string banjo. “Itresembles the primitive banjo found inthe United States in the 18th century inalmost every respect,” Cantwell said.
The banjo in America
The banjo came to America from Africa on slave ships in the 18th century. “The ear-liest record we have is in Thomas Jefferson’s‘Notes on Virginia’, where he mentions itand calls it a banjar,” Cantwell said.
Minstrel shows
The minstrel shows of the mid-19thcentury brought the banjo from the slavesto the rest of the country. Gura said thatin minstrel shows, white players wouldpaint their faces black and imitate African American banjo players. “What I find sounusual about (the banjo) is that mostpeople think about it as a white southerninstrument, when in fact it was somethingtaken from African Americans,” Gura said.In the late 19th century, the banjo became increasing popular as a result of theminstrel shows. As it became more popular,it also became more sophisticated, acquir-ing frets and metal or hardwood tone rings.Banjo clubs also became popular at collegesnationwide. These clubs consisted of stu-dents playing concerts as a banjo orchestra.
Earl Scruggs
In the 1930s, banjo player Earl Scruggsaltered the popular ‘ragtime’ style of banjoplaying, resulting in the modern blue-grass style. “This is one of the few musicalstyles invented by one person,” Cantwellsaid. “(Scruggs) played the banjo the way nobody had heard it played before.”

 When students go online topay tuition for fall semester, they  will use a new student financialssection of ConnectCarolina.The new student billing sys-tem includes a billing templatethat has students’ estimatedfinancial aid and a simpler pro-cess to grant and revoke access tothird parties, including parents.The change was made earlierthis summer as part of an expan-sion of the University’s partner-ship with TouchNet — a compa-ny that designs business softwarefor higher education institutions.The new system allows forexpanded payment options. Inaddition to MasterCard, pay-ments can now be made withDiscover and American Express.“Credit card payments forstudent bills have been pro-cessed via the TouchNet paymentgateway since we started usingConnectCarolina for studentfinancials,” said Debra Beller, a communications specialist withInformation Technology Services.“The change is that billpresentment is now throughTouchNet as well.”Beller said students and par-ent representatives approved thesystem before its implementa-tion.“I think it’s a great change,”said junior Justin Reid.“It makes it much easier toplan your finances for the semes-ter by being able to see all of the fees for the semester on onepage,” he said.The update will require stu-dents to reauthorize third party proxies, such as parents. Proxiesauthorized prior to the change will no longer be valid. An email will be sent to thirdparties with directions to accessthe account.Third parties can accessthe account through a link oncashier.unc.edu.Students can have up to fiveactive third party accounts ata time. Emails will be sent toproxies when the bill is ready, a feature that Beller said will be beneficial to parents.Students will also have to re-sign up for direct deposit on theeRefunds page.“I like the eRefunds page in the(new system) better,” said juniorLindsay Foti.“It looks self-explanatory andeasy to use.”DeAhn Baucom, director of student accounts and univer-sity receivables, said that as of Monday, 1,350 students had setup new direct deposit accountsand that more than 3,500 usershave been authorized.“We have seen thousands of students doing this over the lastday or two with nary a com-plaint,” Beller said“It is really quite user friendly.The new system cost theUniversity almost $85,000,including a $59,000 hosting feeand a $25,800 one-time fee forimplementation and training.Beller said that additionalcharges were waived due tothe University’s relationship with TouchNet. The University renewed its five year agreement with TouchNet in August 2011. According to the cashier’s website, tuition for fall 2012 is$3,845.14 for North Carolina residents and $14,221.14 for out-of-state students.

Holden Thorp said in hisremarks Friday that student ath-letes were not treated differently from non-athletes in the problemclasses. Do you believe this istrue?
LB:
That may well be the case, but in a lot of classes, there werea lot of athletes. Their study indicated that everybody in theclasses were treated alike, there was no favoritism to athletes. We want to look at that a little closer.
DTH:
What do you believe theUniversity needs to do to restoreits reputation going forward?
LB:
I think it is important that we do a detailed and thorough jobin this review. If people believethat there was some type of coverup, then the reputation of theUniversity will suffer even further.
DTH:
Now that you haveheard from various UNC-CHofficials about actions taken asa result of the fraud, what doesthe panel intend to do at itsnext meeting?
LB:
At that point we will bereviewing documents, gradetranscripts, interview transcripts,things of this nature.Then after than we will see where we are.
DTH:
Gage said that the athlet-ic culture is to blame for the aca-demic fraud at UNC-CH. Whatdo you believe needs to happento change this culture?
LB:
This is a huge questionin the U.S. today. People lovecollege athletics, but so muchmoney is generated by it that ithas led to some problems. I amhoping that the university presi-dents throughout the country and NCAA are doing their bestto deal with that. The money is bound to cause some problems,as it is just human nature.
