 A UNC student was hit by a car Tuesday night while crossing the street at the intersec-tion of Weaver Dairy Road and Martin LutherKing Jr. Boulevard, fueling concerns about thesafety of pedestrians on one of Chapel Hill’smost heavily trafficked roads.The student, John Ward, showed no signsof serious external injury, but he was takento UNC Hospitals for an evaluation, said Sgt.Josh Mecimore, spokesman for the ChapelHill Police Department.The incident was reported at 8:32 p.m.Tuesday, according to Chapel Hill police reports. Ward said he does not remember the incident.“I really can’t recall anything about the acci-dent at the time due to amnesia caused by a concussion from the accident,” Ward said in a Facebook message. After hitting Ward, the driver briefly con-tinued driving until she reached a parking lot where she turned around and then returned tothe scene, Mecimore said.The driver was cited for failing to stop her vehicle after striking a pedestrian.Mecimore said the responsibility to stopimmediately after an accident falls on the driver.He added that the driver involved in the incident will be appearing in court for the citation.Mecimore said the police department doesnot suspect the driver was under the influenceof alcohol or drugs.In the past week, two residents have com-plained to the Chapel Hill Town Council aboutthe intersection.In emails to the council, Tom Loughrey andRich Godfrey both said they think the street ishazardous.

Duke Energy is proposing anotherincrease in electric rates — meaning resi-dents and local governments could face theirthird round of rate hikes since 2009.The N.C. Utilities Commission will con-sider the proposed average rate hike of 9.7 percent, which could raise residents’ averagemonthly bills by about $14.If approved, the rate hike could go intoeffect as early as this fall.The University buys about 80 percent of its electricity from Duke Energy for about$35 million annually, said Philip Barner,UNC’s interim director of energy services.University departments, including UNCHospitals and on-campus housing, were warned in the fall about rising electricity

UNC system releases scrutiny of misconduct
By Nicole Comparato andDaniel Wiser
Senior Writers
The UNC-system Board of Governors’ independent review of academic misconduct at UNC-CH,released Thursday, mostly agreed with known findings — but it raisednew concerns among some membersabout the role of athletic advising.The board’s Academic Review Panel presented its final reportto the full board Thursday. In thereport, the panel reviewed five othercampus-initiated investigationsand attributed the misconduct toformer Department of African and Afro-American Studies chairmanJulius Nyang’oro and administratorDeborah Crowder.The most recent review wasconducted by former N.C. Gov. JimMartin, who presented his resultsat a Dec. 20 UNC Board of Trusteesspecial meeting. The report showedirregular classes in the departmentthat dated back as far as 1997.“It was like the chairman had a fiefdom and he was the king — and noone was looking at what the king wasdoing,” said panel member Jim Deal.Not all board members were con- vinced by the panel’s report. Boardmember Burley Mitchell said therole of athletics advisers should bescrutinized more.“You don’t wind up with 45 per-cent of the students in classes likethis being drawn from 5 percent of the student body by random. They  were guided,” he said, referring tothe proportion of student athletes in172 total anomalous courses foundsince fall 2001.The report suggests academiccounselors in the Academic SupportProgram for Student Athletes steeredstudent athletes into courses duringthe periods under review — withoutknowing they were anomalous.But other board members, includ-ing David Young, said the recom-mendations in the report allayed theirconcerns. Recommendations includeusing technology to track suspiciousclustering in courses and ensuringthat student-athletes meet with non-athletic academic advisers annually.“I’m not concerned from an athletic

ttention, those of you who hope to cap off your college careers with a sparkly ring — pay attention to your significant other’sdrinking habits if you don’t want to end up alone and back tosquare one down the road. (Also, re-evaluate your priorities.) A new study says married couples who drink about the same amountare less likely to divorce than couples in which one person enjoys alcoholmuch more than the other. Even more dangerous — in couples where the woman was the heavier drinker, the divorce rate was 26.8 percent.In a more inspiring study, though, it was found that alcohol mixed withdiet soda gets you more drunk, even when you can’t feel it happening. So what does all this tell us? Go drink for drink and you’ll be just fine.

TEDxUNC tickets sell out and leave waiting list
By Hunter Toro
Staff Writer
 Within four minutes of theirrelease, tickets for the 2013TEDxUNC conference sold out, leav-ing 500 people on the waiting list.Co-founder and co-directorRachel Myrick said this year’sTEDxUNC has grown substantially from last year in terms of scale.The location was changed from theFedEx Global Education Center toMemorial Hall to allow for a largeraudience.“In general, we’re feeling moreexcited this year. There’s been anincredible response from campus,”Myrick said. “We’re fully booked —even though it’s 9 a.m. on a Saturday morning for college students.Senior Alex Almeter, directorof finance for the organizing com-mittee, said this year’s growth hasessentially caused the cost of theconference to double from last year.In order to accommodate the largenumber of those interested, organiz-ers turned to technological outlets.Saturday’s TEDxUNC conference will feature a live stream on the web-site live.tedxunc.com to make thetalk accessible to larger numbers. It will also be streamed to projectorsin Carroll Hall and potentially theStudent Union, Myrick said.“There was a strong demandfor the live stream capability,” saidTEDxUNC co-founder and co-director Mackenzie Thomas. “Thus we recognized that we were able toexpand so incredibly this year.Organizers have also created a mobile app for the event to allow attendees a deeper engagement inthe conference. It provides access tothe conference’s agenda and speaker biographies, as well as the integra-tion of TEDxUNC social media.Despite rising costs, the event stillremains free. This is in compliance with the TEDx contract, and orga-nizers said it’s part of their personalphilosophies.“We believe the event should befree as it allows a greater access

to the talk and spreading the mis-sion of the ideas of the conference,” Almeter said.Myrick attributed much of thesuccess of the conference to theefforts of the organizing groups.“The collective hours of work arequite a lot, but it’s fortunate that wehave so many different strengthsand skill sets that we can bring tothe table,” she said. While Myrick said she believesall of the talks will be excellent, sheis most looking forward to hearingUNC senior Stirling Little’s talk ongender harassment in video games,entitled “Excuse me, Princess.“I’m really excited for thatmoment where he gets to shine infront of all of his peers,” she said.Organizers said they have highhopes for this year’s conference andthat the talks will continue as anannual event at UNC.“It’s really stressful but also very exhilarating to see all of the piecesfall into place at a time where mostof us have slept very little and eaten very little,” Thomas said.“But it’s all for the greater good othe conference — we’re feeling very strong.”
Contact the desk editor at university@dailytarheel.com.Chapel Hill Mayor Mark Kleinschmidt announced Wednesday his plans to run for a third term as mayor in the November election. Staff writer Lauren Grady sat down with Kleinschmidt to talkabout his successes as mayor and  goals for a possible next term.
Daily Tar Heel:
 What do youconsider some of your most sig-nificant achievements to date asmayor?
Mark Kleinschmidt:
 We’ve donea lot to preserve our bond ratingduring tough economic times. We’ve been able to secure signifi-cant grant funding for our tran-sit system. We have completed a comprehensive planning processinvolving more people than haveever participated in such a pro-cess in Chapel Hill.I’m proud that we’ve receivednational hon-ors like beingnamed oneof the 10 bestplaces to live.Certainly one of thegreatestachievements would be thecreation of LAUNCH-Chapel Hill,our first busi-ness incuba-tor that isreally comingtogether — the county, the town,University and business com-munity.
Tell us about yourendorsement by the Gay & Lesbian Victory Fund.
The LGBT Victory Fundis an organization that workshard to elect LGBT people tooffice. I’ve been proud to havetheir endorsement in the past.This is kind of the year of theLGBT mayors … This year we have several other strongcandidates, like the mayors of Minneapolis, Harrisburg, Pa.,and New York City.
 Your work with Mayors Against Illegal Guns has put youin the national media spotlightrecently. Do you plan to continue work with that group in thecoming year?
 Absolutely. Being themayor I’ve had the opportunity to speak about issues like gun violence and working to findsolutions on a national levelhas been a very important role.I think I’ve been thrust into it,and I’m pleased to be breakingthis wall.
If re-elected, what would your next term look like?
It’ll be a time for us toreally make the promises of (Chapel Hill) 2020 … We will becompleting the planning effortsfor various parts of our com-munity… We will continue to haveeven stronger relationships with our neighboring jurisdic-tions as we see the implemen-tation of the Orange County and Durham County transitplan, which we will see expand bus service on weekends andat night. And I’m looking forward toguiding the additional transitoptions within the next few  years and fighting for the lightrail.
 Anything else you’d liketo add?
Being the mayor of Chapel Hill — and I’ve said this before — is an extraordinarhonor and I feel so gratefulthat I’ve had this opportunity.It also comes with some greatobligations and responsibili-ties.Chapel Hill is a relatively small town. The brand of ourtown is very, very big. There areexpectations for Chapel Hill todemonstrate leadership on a number of issues: environmentalprotection, social equity, social justice and equality. I’m lookingforward to continuing to keepChapel Hill a leader on thoseissues.

Wynton Wong is creating a documentary and web series that focus on dance clubs and dance opportunities at UNC.
By Lauren Clark
Staff Writer
UNC students are choreograph-ing a movement to promote danceat UNC.Led by sophomore Wynton Wong,students are developing the “Carolina Dance Documentary Project,” aim-ing to showcase dancers at UNC andencourage Chancellor Holden Thorpto allocate more money to dancegroups and establish a dance minor. Wong, a communication studiesmajor, said she is organizing the proj-ect because dance at the University isneglected — despite the existence of numerous dance groups, highly expe-rienced dancers and courses, she said.“We have really talented dancershere who could easily be profes-sional,” Wong said. “But they havechosen to attend UNC.”Despite high student enthusiasmfor dance and suitable on-campusfacilities, Wong said, many dancers believe UNC’s opportunities are lack-ing by not offering a dance minor. Wong said Duke University offersa minor, although there is less stu-dent demand there. Wong said she hopes this docu-mentary will demonstrate why dance is important to UNC.Christine Allison, a dancer inInversions Modern Dance Company and a performer in Wong’s docu-mentary, said the project will pro- vide an opportunity for all dancersto collaborate and add strength tothe campaign for a minor.“A huge reason this campaign hasnot yet succeeded is through lack of organization between all of the(dance) groups on campus,” she said. Wong said the documentary proj-ect has thus far received a positiveresponse.“We had a meeting last week and will hold another couple of meetingssoon,” she said. Wong said she plans to includeas many different dance groups andgenres as possible. While the documentary will focuson one group at a time, there are sug-gestions for a huge Bollywood-stylefinale involving all who participated.Filming is due to start next week at a variety of locations aroundcampus. The project will initially be broadcast online as a weekly inter- view-based Web series, with a fulllength version to be released in April. Wong said she believes the docu-mentary will serve to encouragemore students to become involved.“It is hard to show that dance atUNC exists and that it is accessible,” Wong said. Wong said the project has receivedno funding or official University support and will be shot entirely by a small crew of volunteers. All danc-ers, crew and music featured will beproducts of students, she said. Allison said she hopes the docu-mentary will help the University place more importance on the dancecommunity.“The dance community is so hid-den,” she said. “Only the people whoare passionate about it really getinvolved.”Sarah Bird, another dancer inInversions, said she is excited aboutthe documentary because it will show-case lesser-known dance groups.“As a dancer and freshman at UNCI think there’s a lot of great, mostly undiscovered dance groups,” she said.“It will definitely heighten theprofile of dance at UNC.

Documentary brings attention to dance at UNC
By Kristen Skill
Staff Writer
Kevin Claybren pins a red felt patchto his jacket every day to symbolizethe ability of students to affect change.Claybren, who is running for stu-dent body president, said he has beenan activist since the first moment hearrived at UNC.“My first year at Carolina, I was a  volunteer for the LGBTQ Center andthat’s when I really started seeing theinequality and injustice on this cam-pus,” he said.The junior is a women’s and gen-der studies major and hopes to even-tually become a law school professor.Claybren gained notoriety last year for spearheading the successfulgender-neutral housing campaign. When he was advocating for theoption, he said he noticed peoplereally started rallying around the idea after Mary Cooper, then the student body president, wrote the first letterof support that he received.“It showed that the student body has the power to really engage thecommunity,” he said.He has worked with student govern-ment but said he has never actually  worked within student government.“I bring a sense of critical thinkingand also a different way of looking atstudent government — a new face, a new perspective,” Claybren said.Matt Hickson, Claybren’s campaign volunteer coordinator, said the cam-paign is unique because it is based ona platform of “student power.”“Most students don’t feel a lot of times that they’re engaged in studentgovernment,” he said. “This campaign was designed to reverse that.Claybren said hisunique experiencesput him in positionto be student body president.“I’ve worked with students, staff and administration around gendernon-specific housing options,” he said.Claybren served on the Provost’sCommittee on LGBTQ Life, and hesaid he knows how to navigate and work with administrators, staff andfaculty to make things happen.“It gives me the opportunity to stillreally be student-focused and centered but have the ability and knowledge to work effectively with faculty, adminis-tration and staff,” Claybren said.

Terri Phoenix, director of theLGBTQ Center, said Claybren was a standout with his devoted efforts togender-neutral housing.“Kevin is awesome at coalition building on campus and across thestate of North Carolina,” Phoenix said.“He did a phenomenal job at cultivat-ing relationships with a lot of differentgroups of people, and I think that that was instrumental in the success of thegender-neutral housing campaign.”Claybren said he wants to be themicrophone for students whose voic-es aren’t being heard on campus.But he said even though he isstanding up for the students whoseissues are less talked about, he is not just targeting these specific groups.“He is committed to engaging insocial justice work from an intersec-tional identities and coalition-build-ing framework,” Phoenix said.His mother, Monique Claybren,said that as an activist, when Claybrensees something wrong, he speaks up.“I’m very proud of him, not just forrunning for student body president, but for all of the accomplishments thathe has made,” Monique Claybren said.“I’m the proudest mother on Earth.”
