Superior Court Judge HowardManning issued a court order Wednesday that requires formerUNC head football coach ButchDavis to release some of his cell-phone records within 30 days.In a pair of rulings this month inthe ongoing lawsuit led by a coali-tion of media groups, including TheDaily Tar Heel, Manning granted a protective order for Davis’ personalphone records unrelated to his headcoaching duties, suggesting thatmedia groups might be given accessto the other records.“It’s certainly a significant rul-ing by Judge Manning that publicofficials cannot avoid the require-ment of the public records law by choosing different equipment,” said Amanda Martin, an attorney repre-senting the coalition.“Whether personal cellphoneor email, public officials are stillaccountable under public recordslaw for official business.Martin said Davis has agreed toturn over all work-related phonerecords, but will either release solely the names, or solely the phone num- bers, at the plaintiff’s discretion.The choice of format will be made by the plaintiff coalition, which ismade up by The (Raleigh) News & Observer, The Charlotte Observer,the DTH and five other news out-lets.The media outlets sued for Davis’records in October of last year,claiming work-related calls madeon Davis’ personal phone are publicrecord.Martin added that since Davishas already revealed his plans, itappears unlikely that his attorneys will appeal the order. A ruling earlier this month com-pelled the University to releasecertain records related to the NCAA football investigation to the media

David Caldwell loads up a Rogers Road community center sign into his truck. The center was closed due to fire and safety code violations.
Rogers Road neighborhood loses community center
A promise, emptied
By Chelsey Dulaney
City Editor
It took the Rogers Road neighborhoodalmost 40 years to open a community cen-ter — and only eight hours to empty it.On Tuesday, David Caldwell loaded upthe last of the chairs, folded tables andsigns that filled the small one-story com-munity house into his truck and closedthe door on the last two years.Basketball goals were moved to stor-age, pictures were taken off the walls and books were packed away — indefinitely.The community center — located in a 70-year-old house off Purefoy Drive — was shut down Aug. 11 for violating fireand safety codes. According to a memo from ChapelHill Town Manager Roger Stancil,the Rogers-Eubank Neighborhood Association didn’t apply for a permit touse the house as a community center when they opened it two years ago. Thehouse also didn’t have necessary emer-gency exits, smoke detectors and anevacuation plan.Rev. Robert Campbell, president of RENA, said they intended to use thehouse as a community center for five yearsuntil they could open a permanent center.But as local governments struggle toreach a decision on how they will supportthe historically black and low-incomecommunity that has housed the county’slandfill since 1972, residents of RogersRoad grow tired of waiting.
a ht mtin
In 1972, Campbell said the OrangeCounty Board of Commissioners madea deal with the residents of RogersRoad — if the neighborhood housed thelandfill for 10 years, they promised themservices like sidewalks and a recreationcenter.But the landfill’s closing was delayedafter the 10 years passed, and then again,and again.In February, the board set a landfillclosing date of June 2013. They alsopledged money for a remediation fundthat would help give the residents of Rogers Road access to sewer hook-upsand a community center. At a meeting Wednesday, the Rogers-Eubanks Task Force — made up of rep-resentatives from Chapel Hill, Carrboroand Orange County — discussed the twounmet promises.The meeting was standing room only,and dozens of community membersshowed their support for the RogersRoad community.The task force struggled to reach a consensus on how they would fund thecommunity center and sewer access. And the suggested cost-sharing methods— determined by population or wastecontribution — caught concern fromsome Chapel Hill and Carrboro represen-tatives.They feel they will be paying twice,since they already pay taxes to the county.Commissioner Valerie Foushee saidshe just wants to see something done forthe neighborhood.“I think the county at large has ben-efited from what is a lack of quality of life for these folks,” Foushee said. “I think it should be easy enough for us folks tocome together and remedy a situationthat has gone on for 40 years.”Residents of the neighborhood havecomplained of health problems, a smelland water contamination as a result of the landfill.“What I think needs to happen is that we need to stop putting barriers and justget it done,” Foushee said.
A judge has ordered ButchDavis to release business-related phone records.

Council votes toappeal towing ban
 Academic Plan focuses on students
By Caitlin McCabe
Senior Writer
Bruce Carney is tired of seeingstudents suffer. After months of grappling withthe ramifications of unprecedented budget cuts, the executive vicechancellor and provost said he isconfident faculty and administra-tors will finally implement thesolution the University needs — the2011 Academic Plan.The plan, only the second of itskind in the University’s history,proposes six themes involving morethan 80 recommendations — rang-ing from increasing access to classesto expanding UNC’s global presence.If implemented, the plan wouldserve as an academic road map forthe next 10 years. Although only days into thesemester, the plan’s steering com-mittee has already identified thefocus of the plan for the fall.Executive Vice Provost RonStrauss, who is a member of thecommittee, said the first focus of the year will be student driven.He said the committee plans tocreate more bachelor’s to master’sdegree programs that can be earnedin four or five years of combinedstudy, such as the one in the Schoolof Information and Library Sciences.Strauss said there will also be a focus on developing direct-entry undergraduate to professionalschool matriculation — an initia-tive that will allow highly qualifiedundergraduate students to enroll inUNC graduate programs.“We’ll be putting a lot of energy toward this because we’ll be attract-ing students to graduate programs who might not have consideredCarolina as a first choice,” he said. Alice Ammerman, the AcademicPlan steering committee’s co-chairwoman, said she will examinethe possibility of relaxing academicregulations, such as those related todouble majors and course require-ments.The feasibility of financing theplan — which Carney anticipated would cost at least $40 million when he proposed it to the Board of Trustees — remains uncertain.“The primary drive in termsof allocating funds will be for theacademic mission of the campus,”Carney said. Ammerman said the University  will have to prioritize the plan.“Just because the budget may betight, that doesn’t mean everythingshuts down,” she said.Despite budget cuts that havethreatened the plan’s funding,Carney said much of the 13.5 per-cent tuition increase approvedin February has been devoted tostudent-related issues — many of  which are included in the plan. As a result of this funding, studentshave seen an increased number of first-year seminar courses, twice asmany admitted undergraduates intothe Honors Program and a set of new team-taught interdisciplinary coursesas part of the plan, Strauss said.But faculty also benefit from thecommittee’s work — including thereinstatement of the spousal hiringprogram and an addition of faculty  with international experience.“I’m pleased to see how muchhas been accomplished in such a short time,” Strauss said. “But it’simportant to remember that thisis a 10-year plan, and things aren’tgoing to happen quickly.“But that doesn’t mean we’regoing to be snoozing.”

The Chapel Hill Town Council voted Wednesday to appeal a courtdecision blocking its towing ordi-nance — furthering a three-monthlegal battle about towing practices inthe town.The council unanimously votedto appeal the Aug. 2 ban, which pre- vents Chapel Hill from regulatingtowing practices.The council will officially take the ban to the N.C. Court of Appeals in a few days, Mayor Mark Kleinschmidtsaid. If the court rules in the coun-cil’s favor, the ordinance will bereinstated.The council also voted 6-3 toappeal a injunction on a controver-sial cellphone ban that disallowedthe use of hand-held or hands-freedevices while driving.Kleinschmidt said the fate of the towing ordinance could have a large impact on many other citiesthroughout the state.“This order has such broad, far-reaching effects that go way beyondthe borders of Chapel Hill,” he said.“What is the town’s authority  when it comes to towing?“What is the state’s authority ingiving us the authority to regulatetowing?”In May, George King, owner of George’s Towing & Recovery, success-fully sued the town, stating that bothordinances were unconstitutional.The council passed the ordinancein February in response to a risingnumber of complaints of aggressivetowing policies. Many said they wereunfairly towed after parking at a busi-ness’s lot and walking off of it, which isillegal in some downtown lots.The ordinance limited towing feesto $125, required towing companiesto accept credit cards and ensuredadequate signage alerted customersof the walk-off policy.Thomas Stark, King’s attorney,said he was surprised by the coun-

Assistant Sports Editor
The NCAA tennis tournaments weren’t televised last spring. So theassociation, instead of reworking itsagreement with ESPN or changingits marketing strategy, decided thetennis championship itself needed a makeover.On Aug. 13, the NCAA releaseda report containing a number of recommendations meant to shortenmatches during the event.But the makeover they had inmind didn’t sit well with anyone.“It’s been unanimous,” UNCmen’s tennis coach Sam Paul said.“I haven’t really heard of anyone who supports the proposals, butthen again, I don’t speak for every-one. We just don’t feel that it’s broke, and we don’t think it needsto be fixed.”In response to criticism fromcoaches, players and fans aroundthe nation, the NCAA rescindedlate Wednesday afternoon the mostcontroversial of the recommenda-tions: a 10-point tiebreaker in placeof the third set in the singles matchand a truncated doubles set.Doubles matches, which arecontested in an eight-game set, would have been shortened to justsix games per the discarded recom-mendation.David Benjamin, executive direc-tor of the Intercollegiate Tennis Association, credited the tenniscommunity and media for help-ing alert the NCAA of the report’spotential impact.“We got a tremendous amountof email in our office from a lot of coaches,” Benjamin said. “SportsIllustrated and The New York Timescarried it online over the weekend,so it got an enormous visibility. It was very clear that what was beingproposed was not only controversial but very upsetting to a lot of people.The ITA manages college ten-nis during the regular season, but Benjamin said conferencesmight have considered adoptingthe NCAA’s format to prepare forchampionship competition, whichthe NCAA oversees.The association’s initial rationalefocused on the impact a shortergame would have on the sport’sability to be carried on television.The report also mentions stu-dent athlete welfare, as it relates todual matches spanning four or fivehours, as a concern.But many players felt these pro-posals undermined the basic integ-rity of the game. On Twitter, thehashtag #savecollegetennis gainedprominence in the days followingthe release.Caroline Price, a standout sopho-more on the UNC women’s tennisteam, was against the changes.She said her team’s strategy reliesheavily on being better conditionedthan its opponents — an edge that a shorter format would have dulled.“What we thrive on is our con-ditioning,” Price said. “We know that as we get into the third set that we’re mentally tougher and fitterthan our opponent. Changing thatto a tiebreaker takes that away. Youcan get lucky.”

In the back of a large lecture hall,sometimes Facebook and daydreamstake precedence over listening to theprofessor.But the Center for Faculty Excellence is working to pull atten-tion back to the front of the room by revamping the learning experiencein large classes.Throughout the past six years, thecenter has redesigned six courses tomake them more interactive.But this semester, the center islaunching CFE 100+, a program that will redesign 10 courses, includingBiology 101, Chemistry 101, Drama 116 and more in the coming semes-ters.Bob Henshaw, academic outreachconsultant, said this effort will affectmore than 4,700 students through-out the 10 classes this semester.Henshaw said CFE 100+ involvescreating small group learningopportunities, breaking lectures intosmaller segments and using interac-tive technology such as clickers.“We are giving students the ability to take more responsibility in theirlearning,” Henshaw said.Instructors who want to maketheir classes more innovative submitproposals, and those chosen receive$6,000 grants to spend on educa-tional technology and for the timethey use to rework their material.This money can also be used tosupport additional TA office hoursfor students unable to get help dur-ing class, said Eric Muller, directorof the center.Muller said large classes havehistorically been a problem, but aremore of an issue with recent budgetcuts and increased enrollment.“More and more students arehaving their ‘gateway’ classes inan increasingly large setting,” saidMuller.Muller added that large class sizesmight turn students away from a subject they would otherwise enjoy.He said research shows that unin-terrupted lecture-style teaching isnot an ideal way to facilitate learn-ing, due to the human attentionspan and learning style.Henshaw and Muller added thatthey have seen significant improve-ments in classes that have been rede-signed. Student exam scores, interac-tion and participation increased inthe reformed classrooms.But some students said they pre-fer the traditional lecture style of large classes.Freshman Elizabeth Applegatesaid she chose UNC because sheprefers the anonymity of the largerclasses.“Office hours are a smaller placeto talk to professors if I need extra help,” she said.Junior transfer student ValerieDiaz said large classes are a new experience for her.“It feels more impersonal,” shesaid. “It is more intimidating to ask questions.”Henshaw said in addition tofunding from Lenovo, the initiativehas also received support from theOffice of the Provost.“The provost has committed tosupporting the redesigns on anongoing basis,” Muller said.Henshaw said this support willallow the program to continue wellinto the future.“During difficult budget timesthere are not a lot of new allot-ments,” he said.“This shows their recognitionof the importance of what we aredoing.” While the University recognizesthat large classes aren’t ideal, Mullersaid it isn’t economical to cut classsizes.“It is just a reality to this budgetsituation that we are facing,” he said.“This is one very constructive way to manage it.”

Trading his suit for a casualpolo and slacks, Republican vicepresidential nominee Paul Ryancaptured the admiration of ananimated crowd in Raleigh on Wednesday.Ryan, a U.S. representativefrom Wisconsin, returned toNorth Carolina days after he andRepublican presidential nomineeMitt Romney visited Mooresvilleand High Point. Attendees at the rally saidRyan’s youth and charisma bol-sters Romney’s campaign andcould energize GOP voters in battleground states such as NorthCarolina.“He’s brilliant, and he’s an intel-lectual powerhouse,” said TerriHaag, of Raleigh. “What morecould you ask for?”Rose McCreery, of Raleigh,agreed with Haag.“He’s pro-life, and he’s got allthe right morals,” she said. “He’salso capable of working with bothsides.”Ryan addressed several hun-dred supporters at SMT Inc., a Raleigh-based sheet metal fabri-cation company. The free eventreached capacity about 25 min-utes before the start.Much of Ryan’s speech focusedon fiscal policy, including promis-es to curtail government spendingand complete an overhaul of thenation’s tax code.“President (Barack) Obama andthe words ‘fiscal responsibility’ donot belong in the same sentence,”Ryan said at the speech.Ryan is the chairman of theU.S. House budget committee.Nashville, N.C., resident Andrew Pardue, who will beginhis freshman year at HarvardUniversity this fall, said fiscalpolicy will make the difference inthe election.“(Ryan) highlights the battles between the president andCongress over budgetary issues,and he offers a way to fix them,he said. A deafening roar ensued whenRyan reiterated his vow to repealthe Affordable Care Act, Obama’ssignature health care legislation.The GOP promise of overturn-ing the act has convinced formerDemocrat Margie Cerrillos, now an independent voter of Cary, to vote Republican this November.Standing next to a “HispanicsFor Romney-Ryan” sign, Cerrillossaid people need to depend lesson government — as her parents, who immigrated from Mexico,strove to do.“Everyone should have healthcare, but (the current administra-tion) is going about it the wrong way,” she said. Addressing North Carolina’s9.6 percent unemployment rate,Ryan said his ticket’s plan willeventually create 12 million jobsnationwide, with an estimated355,000 jobs in the state.Ryan made no mention of Rep.Todd Akin, R-Mo., a Senate can-didate who made a controversialstatement Sunday suggesting women will not get pregnant aftera “legitimate rape.” But the issuedidn’t escape notice at the event.Protesters — including PlannedParenthood, MoveOn, andProgress N.C. — held signs andchanted outside the venue.Katy Munger, of Progress N.C.,said she was concerned about theRepublican stance on women’shealth.“In our opinion, rape is rape,”she said, referring to Akin’s com-ments.Both Romney and Ryan have voiced disapproval of Akin’s state-ment.

The CFE 100+ initiativewill redesign 10 courses tomake them interactive.After facing criticism,the NCAA backs down onshortened matches.
 The NCAA initially recommendedthe following measures be imple-mented in championship matches.Remove the warm-up with theopponent before matchesReduce time between singles anddoubles from 10 to five minutesShorten each changeover (break between odd-numbered games)from 90 to 60 secondsReplace the third set in singleswith a 10-point tiebreakerReduce the eight-game doublesset to six games
Though the NCAA decided thethree-set and eight-game formats would not change, it said Wednesday that it would continue to pursue thereport’s other less-contentious sug-gestions.
