The family of David Shannon ishoping details from his cellphoneand computer will help explain why the UNC freshman fell to his deathin Carrboro early on Oct. 27.His brother, Stephen Shannon,said the Carrboro Police Departmentobtained a court order Wednesday to search the cellphone and laptop.He said it could take about a week tosearch the items.Lt. Chris Atack, of Carrboropolice, declined to comment on thedevelopments, saying the investiga-tion is ongoing.David Shannon, a Charlottenative, was found dead the night of Oct. 27 at the Ready Mixed ConcretePlant on Guthrie Avenue.Police say he fell 40 feet early inthe morning after climbing machin-ery at the plant. Police say that alco-hol may have been a factor.Stephen Shannon said there arestill many unanswered questionsabout the hours leading up to his brother’s death.“We do not know why Davidended up at Guthrie Avenue,”Shannon said. “The biggest hole inthe night is how he ended up there.”But he said he is hopeful his brother’s cellphone will reveal moreinformation.“That was one of the last pieces of the puzzle,” Stephen Shannon said.He said David Shannon planned ongoing to the Alpha Delta Pi Sorority Mallard Ball on the night of Oct. 26.Before the ball, he went to a pre-game party on McCauley Street, which is where Stephen Shannonsaid he was last seen. DavidShannon never made it to the eventat La Residence Restaurant.“The other missing piece is whathappened from the time he left theparty at McCauley to the time hegot to the concrete plant,” Stephen

Men in corsets and studded heels,a shimmering gold Speedo and orgiesabound in the Pauper Players’ fall show.The scientific and sexual feather boa-fantasy known as “The Rocky HorrorShow” premieres tonight at midnight.Originally a musical that opened in1973, the 1975 film adaptation, “TheRocky Horror Picture Show” developed a formidable cult following. Amberly Nardo, Janet in the Pauperproduction, said she’s been nervousabout the show because of its notoriety.“A lot of people coming to the show have seen the movie so many times thatthey can quote every line and might yellthem out,” Nardo said. “I know there’s a lot to live up to.”Student director Clare Shaffer saidthe novelty and shock factor of the show drew her to it.“I saw the film for the first time my freshman year, and I was taken aback by it,” she said. “I remember seeing the firstscene when you see Frank as a transves-tite and thinking, ‘Oh my God, that guy is a god.’”Shaffer said the popularity of the pro-duction has made it a challenge to direct.“(It’s) not because I feel a pressure torecreate the movie,” she said.“If I tried to do that, all I would end up with is a cheap imitation and nothing new.But Shaffer said the audience will heariconic songs and see familiar characters.“A lot of the characters have been takenin a completely different direction thanthe movie maybe even intended,” she said.“Rocky is — creatively — probably my greatest contribution to it.”Rocky is Dr. Frank ‘n’ Furter’s cre-ation. Though the movie makes Rocky’scharacter seem stupid, Shaffer said shetook a different route.Max Bitar, who plays Rocky, said he

 A chance encounter Wednesday morning resulted in Emily Brewer,an English Ph.D. student, having a  baby named in her honor. While Brewer and her son were waiting at the Abernethy Hall busstop, a Spanish-speaking womanapproached them, pointing to herpregnant friend.Brewer said she realized quickly that there was a medical emergency.The pregnant woman, Elizabeth Aguilar-Lopez, was squatting in the bus shelter. Brewer said when sherecognized that Lopez’s water broke,she called 911 — without a momentto spare.“She holds her pants open, andthe baby just drops,” she said. “Itappeared to me that she simply exhaled and the baby dropped out.”Brewer said the whole experi-ence lasted for about 10-12 minutes, which left her no time to be scared. After the baby was born, a 911operator walked Brewer through what to do until paramedics arrived.She cleaned the afterbirth aroundthe baby’s nose and mouth withLopez’s scarf and tied a shoelacearound the umbilical chord to stopthe flow of blood.“Throughout all of this, she wasamazingly calm—no screaming, notears, no horror,” Brewer said.“It is every pregnant woman’stremendous fear that when the baby starts to come you’re going to beunprepared — you’re going to beaway from help. And for the womanto face that situation with such graceis a great testament to her.”Stephanie DeVane-Johnson, a nurse-midwife at UNC Hospitals,said this sort of rapid birth is rare.“I would say I’ve been a nurse-midwife for 15 years, and personally,I have seen maybe 15-20 precipitousdeliveries,” she said. Wednesday night, Brewer visitedLopez in the hospital and learnedthat Lopez named the baby Emily.“We’d shared a profound experi-ence — our destinies collided at a critical moment very unexpectedly,and we felt a connection,” she said.Brewer said she went to UNCthat morning because her otherwisereliable babysitter didn’t show upto take care of her son. Brewer took him to campus instead.“It was all just by completechance — it felt almost like I wassupposed to be there.”

The UNC-system Board of Governors will voteon a proposal today that would limit the drop-addperiod at system campuses to 10 class days —despite opposition from chancellors and students.The board’s educational planning, policiesand programs committee approved the proposalThursday for all system schools. UNC-CH cur-rently allows students to drop courses well afterthe first 10 business days of the semester, as longas they obtain a form and have it signed by theirdean or academic adviser before the end of theeighth week of classes.UNC-CH Chancellor Holden Thorp and N.C.State University Chancellor Randy Woodsonurged board members to consider the consequenc-es of the proposed change, especially for students who come from disadvantaged backgrounds.“If you are in that classroom at Chapel Hill, you’ve got some students that went to PhillipsExeter, some that went to Enloe (Magnet HighSchool), and you got some that went to WarrenCounty (High School),” Thorp said.“The one from Warren County, if it takes hermore than one try — it means that is not a badthing.”Committee member James Deal said he thought“grade shopping,” where students try out a classand drop it after the midterm, might be preventingother students from gaining a seat in the class.But Woodson said that very few students — 3percent at NCSU and 1 percent at UNC-CH —actually drop the class by the end of the period.UNC-Charlotte Provost Joan Lorden, who pre-sented the proposal to the board, said students who drop a course late in the semester should havea “W,” for withdrawal, marked on their transcriptsto encourage them not to drop courses lightly.But Thorp disagreed.“Asking people to assess a ‘W’ on their tran-script while they are at a selective university likeours, where we are trying to give lots of differentpeople a fair chance, does not seem right,” he said.“I hope you will exclude this part (from the pro-posal),” he said.Both chancellors and student body presidents

his kid knows how to prioritize his finances. A 9-year-old Ukranian boy took $4,000 in Euros and dol-lars from his parents’ life savings and converted the money into Ukranian hryvnas and spent it all on candy.He was on a school vacation when he decided to take the money, which was hidden under the couch. Seems silly to put your savings in a safe or a  bank or a shelf taller than your candy-loving son.The boy bought thousands of dollars of candy and split it with his buds. No word on whether it was all on clearance after Halloween, which would make this sugary tale even crazier.Kids, right?

Perched under a tree with guitar inhand, Shawn Radcliffe strums his guitarfor passing pedestrians.He can frequently be found outsideSpanky’s Restaurant and Bar on EastFranklin Street.“It’s a good spot to perform,” he saidearlier this week while playing elsewhereon Franklin Street.Radcliffe, a Durham TechnicalCommunity College student and ChapelHill resident, plays for about three or fourdays a week for several hours each day.He said he started playing to makemoney to pay his rent — and he hasrecently also been saving up to buy thepopular video game Halo 4.But Radcliffe said his passion for musicis the real driver behind his performing. At first he said performing was nerve- wracking, but he has gotten used topeople.“I love music,” he said. “I want a job inmusic.”Radcliffe said he writes his own songs, but he also performs more famous pieces.He said he is living with friends inChapel Hill and hopes to transfer to UNCin the near future.Radcliffe said he would prefer to havea steady, part-time job to make moremoney, but he said he would still performon days off.On his very first night as a street per-former, he earned $7. But he said thereare good nights and bad nights.“It varies from night to night,” he said.“(The money) compensates for the hard work.”Reactions to his playing run the gamut.Radcliffe said he once had a man tell him,“You suck, get over it.” That same night,another man gave him $20.Chapel Hill students say they are sup-portive of street performers like Radcliffe.Laura Pianowski, a UNC senior, saidshe enjoys listening to performers onFranklin Street.“I like them,” she said. “It adds aninteresting cultural aspect.”Emran Huda, a UNC graduate stu-dent, said the university atmosphere isa good place for performers to expressthemselves.“This is one of the few places for freedomof expression,” Huda said, although he saidhe doesn’t like offensive performances.Radcliffe said he likes performing onFranklin Street because Chapel Hill is a change from the Durham area where heattends school.“I like the way the buildings look,” hesaid.

In a small lounge on thesouth concourse of KenanStadium, perfectly framed teampictures clad a dark wood pan-eled room to represent the tra-dition of UNC football.In these photos are a centu-ry’s worth of UNC football play-ers, and at halftime on gamedays, the lounge floods withCarolina Football Lettermen, who gather to share memoriesand reminisce over a hot dog.“What I love about it is youknow it is a brotherhood,” saidDon McCauley, a former tail- back from the late 1960s andearly ’70s who went on to play 11 years in the NFL.“We all represented and worethat uniform that makes you soproud.”The Carolina FootballLettermen’s Association wascreated in the late 1980s underformer head coach Mack Brown, who wished to unify themany eras of Tar Heel football.Today, McCauley said thereare about 1,200 lettermen thatrepresent that tradition, but it’sabout more than former playersgetting together at a game.McCauley, who also servesas head of football projects andlettermen relations for the Ram’sClub, said meeting at the CharlieJustice Football lettermen’slounge during halftime is justone aspect of keeping the broth-erhood together.“Whether you were first team All-American or third teamtackle, it makes no difference —this group is in this together.”Mel Lewis, who was a trainer when he was a student with theteam from 1965 to 1969, now manages the nicknamed “ChooChoo” lounge, and knows whatit takes to become a letterman.“You’ve got to earn it,” he saidabout the coveted lettermen’s jacket. “It’d be like a girl buyinga tiara for winning a beauty con-test — no, you have to earn it.”Lewis said that the headcoach typically decides wholetters on a team each year, butusually it corresponds to play-ing time and impact.One change that Lewis andMcCauley have made is work-ing to bond all former players,even if they didn’t letter.“There’s always been rulesand standards, it used to driveme nuts,” McCauley said.“Saturday is when you get all

innocence while supporters have setup a website, helppaulframpton.org. After Frampton’s first requestfor house arrest was denied whena medical exam showed his condi-tion could be treated in prison, heappealed for a second medical exam.His efforts stalled until he wasable to, for the first time sincehis arrest, hire a family of privatelawyers with funds from friends inBuenos Aires, Williams said.Once he had a private lawyer, Williams said Frampton was able toget a second medical exam in mid-October, which diagnosed Frampton with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.Now that Frampton is on housearrest, he is able to perform more of his duties, Williams said.“Paul’s in much better circum-stances now,” Williams said. “He canSkype, he has email, he can easily interact with the outside world now.” Williams said UNC administra-tion, which suspended Frampton’spay in March, has been notified of the change. He said Frampton hasthe ability to participate in faculty meetings via Skype or speaker phone. Williams said Executive ViceChancellor and Provost BruceCarney and Chancellor HoldenThorp have been unreceptive toFrampton’s appeals.Both Carney and Thorp declinedto comment.“No matter how many times youtell them he’s published papers,advised students, participated fortwo hours by speaker phone in hisgrievance hearing, the only response you get is, ‘He can’t perform hisduties, therefore we won’t fundhim.’ This is a blatant falsehood,” Williams said. Williams said the Universithas no legal basis for suspendingFrampton’s pay.“There is no policy in the entirecode that allows administration toput a tenured faculty member onunpaid personal leave against hisobjection without notice. At issue is Section 603 of the UNCsystem’s code, which outlines stan-dard due processes for discharges orsanctions against tenured faculty.The code states that a faculty member might be discharged for a “neglect of duty, including sustainedfailure to meet assigned classes orto perform other significant profes-sional obligations.The UNC faculty grievance com-mittee heard Frampton’s case andreached a decision on Sept. 26 that Williams said was “highly favorable.But Williams said both Carney and then Thorp rejected the com-mittee’s proposals.Committee chairwoman JillMoore declined to comment on any specific grievance, but said that inany case, after the chancellor’s deci-sion, appeals would go to the UNCBoard of Trustees — a move Williamssaid Frampton plans on taking.In a letter to Thorp provided toThe Daily Tar Heel by Williams, heargues the UNC administration isafraid of criticism for paying a pro-fessor in prison.“Instead of doing the right thing, you did the safe thing for yourself,he said in the letter.

Students considering whether to apply for stu-dent body vice president next year might need tocheck the size of their wallets first.The rules and judiciary committee of StudentCongress passed a bill Wednesday that could elimi-nate the student body vice president’s $200 month-ly stipend. The bill will be heard by the full StudentCongress next week.But the student government executive board is worried that if the stipend is cut, the position will be less accessible to students who need an incometo support themselves through college. At several other universities in the state, student body representatives are also provided with sti-pends — and the question of stipend amounts is a point of discussion across the board.N.C. State University Student Body President Andy  Walsh has a stipend of $4,650. He said stipends haveincreased slightly, but they remain “a touchy subject”that prompts officers to freely voice their opinions. Walsh said he has cut back hours at his paid intern-ship to devote more time to student government.“If you average it out and put in my time cards, I would be getting paid around 80 cents an hour —that’s ludicrous, but it doesn’t matter,” Walsh said.“I’m happy doing my job regardless of the stipend.”Jake Cox, student body president at AppalachianState University, said the president and vice presi-dent at ASU receive higher stipends than the otherexecutive officers. He said stipends are necessary forstudent government to operate.“It’s not so much about the payment, but more asa thank you to every worker who puts in those 25 to30 hours of work in a given week,” he said.UNC Student Body President Will Leimenstoll, who receives financial aid, said balancing a job anda position on the executive board is difficult.“I would not have run for office and would nothave been able to put the burden on my family,” hesaid. “I’ve had a job every other semester at Carolina.”“I think it would significantly undermine accessof these positions and undermine the ability of stu-dent government to represent students at Carolina.”Leimenstoll said the vice president serves as a great asset to student government, making it neces-sary for the position to be paid.UNC’s student body president and treasurer alsoreceive stipends. They must perform their dutiesthrough the summer.The vice president shares multiple responsibili-ties with the president, such as sitting in on meet-ings and making external appointments.Peter McClelland, vice chairman of the rulesand judiciary committee and co-sponsor of the bill,said last year’s student body vice president, ZealanHoover, balanced the responsibility with being a resident advisor.“I don’t agree that a part-time job is not possible,”McClelland said.McClelland said the vice president’s stipend —$2,400 a year — can be put to better use elsewhere,such as other student organizations.“We should hold ourselves to the same rules aseveryone else — student government is a publicservice.”
