Ian WIllIams, “WHy I HaTe Duke” Column
The last time an unranked Carolina team won at Duke
 When the unranked Tar Heelsface No. 2 Duke today, the odds will be stacked against them.
Can theodds beovercome?

his friends back home in New Jersey. He tells them all the time just how lucky he feels to be where he is today.Going from averaging just five minutes per game last seasonto now holding down a starting role for UNC, Hubert feels for-tunate for his increased responsibility and the privilege of put-ting on a Carolina blue jersey. Playing before a packed house of more than 9,000 fans in Cameron Indoor Stadium will soon be just one more reminder that he’s living his dream.In a seat behind the North Carolina bench tonight will be onefan in particular to whom Hubert owes much of his gratitude.For almost every UNC basketball game, Hubert’s uncle, Henry Jackson, is in the stands looking on. It’s a seven-hour drive forJackson to Chapel Hill from Cream Ridge, N.J., where he raisedHubert since his mother passed away in 2007. But Jackson doeshis best not to miss one, even if it means driving through thenight to get back home in time for work the next day.Having never played organized basketball before moving toNew Jersey as a teenager, Hubert has his uncle to thank for hiscontinuously blossoming basketball career and for being theparent he so tragically lost at the age of 14.“He didn’t have to do that,” Hubert said. “Him taking care of me and raising me like I was his son wasn’t his responsibility.”But tonight at tipoff, when the buildup is big and the stakes areeven bigger, Jackson will be able to look to center-court and seeexamples of not just the gifts he gave, but also the life-changingone he got in return.

here are few venues comparable to Cameron Indoor Stadium.It’s loud. It’s intimidating. It’s crowded. For the North Carolina men’s basketball team, it’s decorated in a more ominous shade of blue.

 Ian Williams wrote a 1990 column for The DailyTar Heel entitled “Why I Hate Duke.” It remains oneof the DTH’s most popular stories. In 2007, Williamswrote a follow-up column, “Why I Still Hate Duke.” In light of today’s game, staff writer Jackson Knapp spoke with Williams to revisit the columnthat famously said things like “I want Krzyzewskicalling home to his mother with tears in his eyes.” Williams is now a professional writer currently liv-ing in Los Angeles.
Daily Tar Heel: 
 What type of feed- back did you get when your column was first published?
Ian Williams:
I thought that at TheDaily Tar Heel we held ourselvesto a pretty high bar, where if some-thing were just too obvious, even a cliche, then we wouldn’t do it, and Ifelt like an article about why some-one should hate Duke would be likeshooting fish in a barrel.It’s one of those things when you say somethingthat everyone’s been thinking, but no one’s said yet.It has a surprising amount of power. It was the firstcodification of that sort of feeling.

“She had no energy and wasfeeling sick all the time … She would getup and vomit in the morning.”— A woman who drank 2.5 gallons of Coke a day died three years ago. A coroner’sreport released today pointed to the drink.More than 11 times the acceptableamount of sugar per day will do that to ya.
e can’t say he didn’t see it coming. The “unofficialspokesman”-slash-megafan of the aptly named Heart Attack Grill died Monday of — wait for it — a heartattack. Loyal customer John Alleman never missed a day at the Las Vegas grill, which serves such atrocities as a chocolatemilkshake topped with a pat of butter and the Quadruple Bypass Burger, which clocks in at 9,982 calories. (How is that even possible?)People who weigh more than 350 pounds eat for free at the grill, where Alleman became a mascot, often trying to persuade people to come eat. Why people will continue to eat at the grill is the question, but hey,their slogan is pretty catchy: “Taste … worth dying for.” Yow.
He was already in heaven

water polo
  You’re treading water,using only your legs to stay afloat since both of your armsare occupied; one arm iskeeping the ball as far fromthe defender as possible andthe other is attempting tokeep the distance.But what can’t be seen by the referees is your defender’shands grabbing you by thesuit underwater and attempt-ing to drag you down. This is women’s water polo.The University of NorthCarolina Women’s Club Water Polo team returns tothe Mid-Atlantic Divisionof the Collegiate Water Polo Association with the return of experienced players, the addi-tion of several new players,and experienced new coachBen Byers. After finishing7th in last year’s conferenceseason with a travel team of only 12 girls, women’s waterpolo now has a roster of 21players including 9 returningplayers. With solid startersand a large bench, the TarHeels are optimistic about theupcoming season. Returning veteran players and highpoint-scorers Kelli Avalos, Aubrey Germ, Ashley Gremel,and Laura Seidel are expectedto play crucial roles in thepool this season. Also expect-ed to put on a show are new players Barbara Cole, SarahLahidji, and Lindsay Loyd.
The UNC Club Gymnasticsteam hosted 60 competi-tors from North Carolina State University, University of North Carolina at Wilmington, and University of Virginia for a “Jersey Floor”themed gymnastics competi-tion this weekend. The TarHeels’ hard work in practice was apparent at the meet.Ian Everitt won 1st place onfloor exercise, while Eric Luuand Brad Cockrell took 2ndand 3rd place, respectively.Ryan Lynch also placed 1ston vault. For the women,Heather Frederick won 1ston vault, Ashley Ross got 1ston uneven bars, and Jenna Kilgore took home the goldon floor exercise. DesireeLaFountain placed 2nd onfloor exercise and vault, andKaitlyn Townsend got 3rdplace on balance beam. UNCplaced second overall as a team, just two-tenths behindNC State with a score of 142.75.
UNC Darkside wascrowned champion at theQueen City Tune Up, inCharlotte, NC. Darkside out-scored its opponents 90 – 43over six games for the week-end. While many of the othertop seeds were, UNC took care of business and blew through teams in pool play.The only hiccup occurred inthe semifinal game againstHarvard, which saw Darksidedown 8-6 at halftime.However, they came out inthe second half with fire,smothering their opponent with tight defense and layoutafter layout after layout.

Fresh from a winter hiatus,the members of the UNCTriathlon Team have startedto ramp up training for thespring triathlon season,looking ahead to the USA Triathlon Collegiate Nationalson April 12-13.Nationals are slated to takeplace at Tempe, Arizona, andover 120 collegiate club teamsfrom around the nation areexpected to compete.“The mood at CollegiateNationals is like no otherrace I’ve ever done,” says GilCukierman, president of thetriathlon club team. “Thenoise at the starting line last year was deafening.“I’m pretty sure my heart was beating at an unhealthy rate right before the start-ing gun went off,” continuedCukierman.Mollie Brewer, vice presi-dent of the team, has racedat Collegiate Nationals every  year she has been at Carolina.“I guess I want a grandfinale of my collegiate rac-ing career,” said Brewer. “Iam expecting this year to beanother very competitive.” While most triathlon train-ing is a solitary endeavor, theteam meets to train togethertwice on Tuesdays, with a gru-eling morning swim workoutand then an equally toughtrack workout. Only about9 weeks of training sepa-rate UNC’s triathletes fromNationals.“I think our team has got-ten stronger and strongerevery year,” added Cukierman.“I’m excited for our team this year.

One of Gov. Pat McCrory’s key education proposals has found leg-islative backing at the N.C. General Assembly.The N.C. Senate voted unani-mously last week to approve SenateBill 14, which would make twotracks — college preparatory and vocational education — avail-able to state high school students.The bill is currently in a House of Representatives committee.During his campaign, McCrory advocated for the dual pathway system, with an emphasis on voca-tional training, as a means of boost-ing employment.Beginning in the 2014-15 aca-demic year, high school students would select one of three paths —college, career or both — and earncareer endorsements in addition todiplomas, according to the bill.Steve Farmer, vice provost forenrollment and undergraduateadmissions at UNC-CH, said voca-tional education can motivate stu-dents to stay engaged in school andlearn a wide range of skills.He said the effect on university admissions remains unclear, butstudents who follow a vocationaltrack would not be excluded fromadmission to the University — eventhough it is a liberal arts school— as long as those students took a rigorous course load.“We don’t care what label is onthe transcript,” Farmer said.June Atkinson, state superin-tendent of public instruction, saidin an email that students will gaincredit beyond the national mini-mum requirements for high schoolgraduation.She said students would receivecareer endorsements for takingthree or four courses in a specificconcentration.But Chris Hill, director of theEducation and Law Project at theN.C. Justice Center, said the focusshould be on making high schoolstudents both career- and college-ready — not one or the other.“You shouldn’t have to make a decision about your career when you’re 15 or 16 years old,” Hill said.He said minority groups might be pushed into vocational tracks because they have historically lowerhigh school graduation rates.“There are just too many unan-swered questions for me,” he said.The bill is only the start of theprocess, said Terry Stoops, directorof education studies at the JohnLocke Foundation.He said the bill directs theState Board of Education and theDepartment of Public Instructionto research similar models in otherstates and conduct trial runs of thedual-track system in select schools.Five other states have pledged todevelop multiple pathways for highschool students.“The bill gets the ball rolling on a series of larger reforms,” he said.Stoops said he would like to seeUNC-system schools play an activerole in helping to develop the new  vocational pathway.“Some universities have the

“This is an experience that I would nottrade for the world,” he said.Despite his loss, Claybren said he is excit-ed about the two remaining candidates.“The students voted for them and theirissues — I just hope they stay to the core of (their) values when it comes down to it,” headded.Chairwoman of the Board of ElectionsShruthi Sundaram said some studentsexperienced technical difficulties during the voting period and had to vote through analternative write-in ballot.Tuesday’s turnout — 5,691 students, orabout 19 percent of the student body — wasan increase from last year’s record low of 4,507 votes.In an effort to increase voter turnout,Lindsey and Lambden said they willstrengthen their campaign efforts duringthe next week.“I think it’s a case of doing a lot of what we’ve been doing already — move the mes-sage a little bit further,” Lambden said.Lindsey said he will continue to cam-paign in the Pit to keep students engaged inthe election.“As campaigners we need to keep peopleinvolved and informed. We need to keepenthusiasm high.”

Chancellor Holden Thorpannounced Tuesday that UNC willadd a dance minor.The minor will be offered withinthe College of Arts and Sciencesand will allow student registration beginning in either fall 2013 or fall2014, according to a press release.Thorp announced the plans ata meeting of the Student Advisory Committee to the Chancellor.The proposal for the minor wassubmitted in the fall by LaurenFriedmann, a junior and advisory committee member.“Originally, we had heard that theearliest it would happen was 2014,”Friedmann said. “But it seems thatit’s moving pretty quickly.Though Friedmann held meetings with students and dance groups aboutthe minor’s curriculum, she said she’sstill unsure what exactly it will offer.“We did submit an idea to thedean of what we’d like the cur-riculum to look like, and we’d really like administrators to take that intoaccount,” Friedmann said.She said students and dancers wantthe minor to include various levels of classical ballet, modern dance, worlddance, hip-hop and ballroom dance. And Sarah Bird, a dancer inInversions Modern Dance Company,said she wants to see dance classesthat incorporate performanceopportunities. Amanda Ziesemer, an intern atCarolina Performing Arts and anadvisory committee member, saidit’s interesting to see the academicplanning that goes into a minor.“A lot of people have preconceivedideas that a dance program is justdance classes, but the whole idea of a dance minor is to incorporate theacademic side of it,” she said.The proposal Friedmann submit-ted in the fall followed years of lob- bying for a minor.“The dance community atCarolina has worked really tirelessly for this,” she said.“There’s such a thirst for dance inan academic setting that the curricu-lum will be met with open arms.”

Nice Price Books leaving Carrboro
By Holly West
Staff Writer
For 26 years, Nice Price Bookshas been a place for students, pro-fessors and residents to buy used books and vinyl records.But on March 10, the Carrboro bookstore will close its doors.Cindy Kamoross, who owns NicePrice with her husband, said thestore’s other locations in Durhamand Raleigh will remain open.Kamoross said business at theCarrboro store has declined duringthe past few years.She said one reason for thedecline is that more people are buy-ing books from online booksellers.Kamoross said business has alsodeclined because of the constructionof the town’s first hotel at 300 E.Main St., which has closed off partof the sidewalk near her bookstore.This problem echoes a concernfor nearby businesses that was brought up by town officials dur-ing the planning stages of thehotel project.Nice Price sells a variety of used books — from popular fic-tion to children’s books to aca-demic material.In addition to selling used books,Nice Price sells vinyl records, CDs

and DVDs.“We get some nifty old quirky and neat things,” she said.Betty Schumacher, manager of Chapel Hill’s The Bookshop, saidshe was surprised to hear aboutNice Price’s closing.“I thought they were doing pret-ty well,” she said.She said sales at her store havedeclined slightly in the past few  years, but she thinks it is a result of the economic recession.Kamoross said Nice Price has a loyal base of customers that includesprofessors, graduate students, resi-dents and people from out of town.“We also have, surprisingly, a lotof customers that come here fromDurham, Cary, Raleigh, Pittsboro,she said. “There are people who just really love used book stores.They find us.”She said the store is offeringdiscounted prices for all of itsmerchandise.“I just hope that people willcome by and see us before weclose,” she said.Back Alley Bikes, a bike repairshop, will be moving into the spacecurrently occupied by Nice Price.Back Alley Bikes owner JasonMerrill said the store will movefrom its Chapel Hill location to theCarrboro space in early April.Merrill said one reason for themove is that he will be buyinginstead of leasing.“It’ll be nice to get into a space wecan be in for a long time,” he said.
