 Abortioncoverageup in theair in NC
By Meredith Burns
Staff Writer
 As implementation of the AffordableCare Act begins to take shape in NorthCarolina, the question of whetherabortions will be covered in thestate’s health care exchange remainsunanswered.Both the N.C. House and Senate have voted to approve a bill that would notexpand Medicaid under the act andestablish a federally-run exchange inthe state, though the bill must still bereviewed in conference committee.The health care exchange will enableresidents and small businesses to choosefrom a variety of different insurancepolicies.The exchange, which will beginoperating in 2014, is slated to offer at leastone policy that covers abortion proceduresand one policy that does not.But legislators and lobbyists are watching closely to see if the state will joinat least 20 other states that have passedlaws to restrict abortion coverage in plansoffered through the insurance exchange.Rep. Verla Insko, D-Orange, said accessto abortion coverage could be restricted by the Republican-controlled legislature.“I would not be surprised if a bill cameup to ban abortion coverage in the healthexchange,” she said.
It may be restricted throughthe insurance exchange.
Tenants search for new business spaces

The redevelopment of University Square ismoving forward after its rezoning and specialuse permit were approved by the town on Feb.11 — but the process is far from over. Although the special use permit doesn’trequire construction to begin until February 2015, businesses in University Square arealready planning for the changes.During construction — which will demol-ish and replace the existing development witha combination of office, retail and residentialspace, and more than 1,000 parking spots— current tenants will have to shut down orrelocate.Kelly Bruney, the co-owner of University Square restaurant Butternut Squash, said theowners of the building had promised her a place in the new development since 2009, butchanged their minds in the summer of 2012.“They said they would temporarily rehouseus and then we would get permanent rehous-ing,” she said. “They deliberately misled us forfour years.”But Gordon Merklein, executive director of real estate development for UNC and mem- ber of the 123 West Franklin St. developmentteam, said no such agreement existed, becausethe project’s timeline has been unknown andthe new building will be owned by a different
Permits to redevelop UniversitySquare were approved Feb. 11.
Fetzer Hall may be repaired with solar roof 
By Hunter Toro
Staff Writer
Campus leaders in sustain-ability are looking to capitalize onthe long-awaited repair of FetzerHall’s roof — in the form of solartechnology.The state released funds forthe roof’s repair in 2012 to fixstructural damage after years of  waiting.Renewable Energy SpecialProjects Committee co-chair- woman Jenna Koester said thecommittee is in the process of developing a plan to add in state-of-the-art solar technology along with the state’s repairs, similarto the technology on the roof of Morrison Residence Hall.Solar projects are most costeffective when installed duringa new build or large scale roof repair, Koester said.Members of the committee, which is made up of students andadministrators, allocated $37,750on Feb. 12 for a structural designand technology design from thesolar company Cogenra.The committee’s leadersstressed that although they havefunded the design, they have notformally decided to approve fundsfor the project yet.“We are not just making deci-sions before getting an idea of  what actual benefits will be,Koester said.“We want the project’s pay- back to be while the students who paid for it are still here. We want to make sure to benefit stu-dents directly through essentially lowering the energy bill of theUniversity.”If members deem the designsfeasible and beneficial, the com-mittee will most likely fund theproject out of the annual $4 stu-dent “green” fee that was renewed by student body referendumTuesday.Freshman Chase Coale was oneof the students that voted for therenewal of the fee.
A committee allocated$37,750 to the panels’proposed design.

 At a latte-making class at OpenEye Cafe on Saturday, studentsunleashed their coffee creativity, try-ing their hands at making designsfrom elephants to tulips.Barista Miles Murray said theperfect latte is all about the milk.“It’s literally a science,” Murray said. “And for someone that doesn’tlike science, it’s real difficult.”In order to create designs on thetop of the latte, baristas pour thepaint-like steamed milk over theespresso with care.The elaborate designs are thenmade with a quick flourish by the barista when the coffee is about topour over the rim.But some students in the classfound the craft difficult. When Andrew Heintz tried hishand at pouring a design for hislatte, the design didn’t come out asplanned.“I am now drinking elephantsquid lungs,” Heintz said as he took the first sip of his coffee.Murray, who has been a barista for eight years, said creating lattedesigns was an imperfect art, but itis worth the effort.“Making coffee art is a symbolof quality,” Murray said. “So havinglatte art is like a barista’s stampof approval.

Chapel Hill Transit employees brought historical civil rightsstruggles to life Saturday, portrayingRosa Parks’ legendary refusal to giveup her seat on a bus to a white manin 1955. About 15 transit employeescelebrated Black History Month by performing a one-act play aboutthe unofficial beginning of the civilrights movement.The play — “Why Should IMove?” — chronicled Rosa Parks’refusal and her subsequent arrest.Friends, family and fellow transitemployees gathered Saturday morning in University Mall to watchthe second annual re-enactment, which included narration from anolder Rosa Parks character and a cappella singing.Interim Transit Director BrianLitchfield said last year’s production, which commemorated MartinLuther King Jr. Day, was such a success that Chapel Hill Transit wanted to recreate it.“We felt that it was an importantenough event and an importantenough message that we’d liketo share it with the community,”Litchfield said.“Obviously we have a connection with Ms. Parks and what shedid and making sure that publictransportation was available toeveryone regardless of their race.Many of the thespians said they had little to no acting experienceprior to their performance onSaturday.Jennie Stokes, who played an African-American passenger onthe bus, said it was her first timeperforming in a play like this, andshe enjoyed it.“It was a great experience,” Stokessaid.Playgoer Ashley Reed, a UNCgraduate student, said the event wasa success.

Professors from colleges nationwide spokethis weekend about the Muslim veil’s far-reach-ing influences on religion, art and fashion.Seven featured speakers spoke to about 200people at the FedEx Global Education CenterFriday and Saturday. The conference, called“ReOrienting the Veil,” was put on by the 2013Duke-UNC Consortium for Middle East Studies.Sahar Amer, an Asian studies professor andlead organizer of the event, said an exhibitionthat shows how Muslim women choose to por-tray themselves will be held at the Ackland ArtMuseum for the remainder of the semester.“Art is a unique way to give voice to aspectsnot usually discussed,” she said.Banu Gokariksel, a geography professor, was a co-organizer and speaker at the event.She said she was excited to bring an inter-disciplinary group of scholars together for thisconference to examine the cultural, politicaland religious meanings of the veil.“For many women, the materiality of theheadscarf is actually significant for cultivatingpiety, and therefore, it is an integral part of religious practice,” she said.Gokariksel said the veil, or the hijab, is a relevant topic.“The veil is particularly important today  because of its geopolitical scripting in thepost-9/11 world as a symbol of Islam andMuslims,” she said.Juliane Hammer, a religious studies profes-sor and a co-organizer of the event, said it wasimportant to continually discuss the aspects of the veil.“The continuing interest in this topic com- bined with widespread misconceptions andsimplifications of the topic explains why moreshould and can always be done in discussingthe topic,” she said. Amer, who wore a veil for one year whileattending college, said she believes the confer-ence provided an enlightening experience.“I hope people have a new perspective on veiling — that a lot of women are choosing to veil — and match religious reality with socio-economic reality,” Amer said. “Muslim women’s values are not heard in relation to fashion. Amer said she is always amazed at how much interest the topic of veiling generates
