 With what should be just weeks to go until theHonor Court trial of sophomore Landen Gambilland her ex-boyfriend, Gambill’s lawyer said Monday that she will no longer be participating.In a Monday letter to Chancellor Holden Thorp,Henry Clay Turner, Gambill’s attorney from theMcSurely & Turner law firm, said the Honor Courtcase Gambill is facing is a “reckless prosecution” —and demanded that the case be dropped.“The retaliatory charges against my client areinappropriate, unconstitutional and utterly withoutmerit,” Turner wrote in the letter.Turner also wrote in the letterthat Gambill filed a new — andthird — complaint with the U.S.Department of Education Monday  based on the alleged retaliation.The announcement thatGambill will not attend the trialcomes on the heels of a nearly month-long effort from Gambillto have UNC drop a charge filedagainst her.Gambill was charged Feb. 22 with a conduct violation of theUniversity’s Honor Code thatclaims she engaged in disruptiveor intimidating behavior againstthe man she has publicly accused of raping her.Henry Ross, deputy student attorney general forthe honor system, said if a student does not attendhis or her trial, a plea of not guilty is entered on hisor her behalf.He said that even if a student is absent, his or hercounsel — an undergraduate Honor Court member— would be required to attend.“You would never run a hearing without counselsfor both sides,” Ross said.Though he could not speak to whether Gambill would face consequences for refusing to attend, hesaid it is always in a student’s best interest to bepresent for a hearing.“I can’t think of a situation in which it would beadvantageous or neutral for someone to refuse theoption they have been given to speak on their own behalf,” Ross said.Neither Gambill nor Turner could be reached forcomment Monday.Frank LoMonte, executive director of the StudentPress Law Center, said that in student judiciary pro-ceedings, the student facing charges is usually not

The N.C. Department of Transportation has amended a decision to issue driver’s licens-es with a controversial design — but advocates say the changesare not extensive enough.The original proposedlicense design, which includeda pink stripe to distinguish citi-zens from noncitizens, raisedconcerns among immigrantadvocacy groups.The N.C. Attorney General’soffice had released a statementin January requiring DMV offices to issue the licensesstarting Monday.But the Department of Transportation announced justa few days before, on Thursday,that the licenses would not beissued with the stripe.However, the licenses willstill be marked with “NOLAWFUL STATUS” and“LIMITED TERM.”State law requires all tem-porary licenses to feature a distinctive mark, and the final

 An slice of artichoke pizza from Artisan Pizza Kitchen. An A.K. ski fromBSki’s. A burger from Spanky’s. Wingsfrom The Grille at Four Corners. When UNC students go to FranklinStreet in search of food, the options canseem unlimited.But a lack of diversity — highlighted by the fact that successful chain restau-rants continue to move into downtownChapel Hill as others close — might behurting local businesses. According to a 2012 study commis-sioned by the Chapel Hill DowntownPartnership, an overabundance of restaurants has created a supply anddemand gap in downtown.Though the findings were not sur-prising to most, Chapel Hill businessowners and officials are hoping thatdowntown businesses can be diversifiedto draw more customers to the area.“I feel like the only things really stand-ing the test of time are bars and restau-rants right now,” said Drew Hansel, thegeneral manager of Spanky’s Restaurant& Bar on Franklin Street.“It’s (downtown Chapel Hill busi-nesses) not creating for any sort of diversity but just trying to cater for what students want.

‘Rite’ takes new color in show 
DOT removes pink stripe from licenses
By Josephine Yurcaba
Assistant Arts Editor
Tonight Carolina Performing Artscelebrates a different rite of spring — with a greater multitude of colors.CPA’s next commissioned perfor-mance in its “The Rite of Spring at 100”centennial celebration is a collabora-tion between composer Vijay Iyer andfilmmaker Prashant Bhargava, titled“RADHE RADHE: Rites of Holi.”The show, which takes place tonight,features Bhargava’s film, accompa-nied by a live orchestral composition written by Iyer and performed by theInternational Contemporary Ensemble.The performance of Iyer’s composi-tion will be its world premiere.Joe Florence, marketing and com-munications manager for CPA, said it wanted to commission Iyer because of his insight into “The Rite of Spring”in relation to the Indian celebration of Holi, without using the show’s score.“We’re celebrating the rite of spring, but ‘The Rite of Spring,’ the actual music,is only played on stage twice (this sea-son),” Florence said. “One thing that was very important to us was not recreating‘The Rite of Spring’ 40 times.”Florence said CPA is not only honor-ing Stravinsky’s work but is bringing a global context to the coming of spring with this collaboration.

Issuing temporary driver’slicenses to some immigrantshas been controversial:The N.C. Division of MotorVehicles released a statementin January requiring licensesto be issued starting Monday.The original license includ-ed a pink stripe along withthe phrases “NO LAWFULSTATUS” and “LIMITED TERM.”The N.C. Department of  Transportation announced Thursday that the licenseswould not feature the pink stripe.

Bhargava said he considered the foun-dation and goal of Stravinsky’s piece —to incite audiences — and applied that tothe Hindu celebration of spring.The Holi celebration, based on thelegendary affair of Krishna and Radha,served as a destination for Bhargava’sfilm, as he ventured to Mathura, India,in 2012 to film the celebration.“There are a lot of rituals that are very primal and very sexual, have a lotof exuberance and are sometimes vio-lent,” Bhargava said. “I shot 30 hoursof footage … and started to construct a narrative based on the rituals and thefoundation that were in the footage.Bhargava said he cut all of his foot-age to a London Symphony Orchestra performance of “The Rite of Spring”and ended up with a 35-minute film.The title, “RADHE RADHE,” isa phrase Bhargava said people inthis region of India would say if they  bumped into you, were coming fromtemple or were in a state of exuberance.“It felt like there was a citywideinfectious energy,” Bhargava said.Iyer said his work is less aboutStravinsky and more about the connec-tion among all rites of spring.“I turned the sound off on Prashant’sfilm and tried to create something elsethat was less about this episodic struc-ture and was more of responding to what I was seeing,” Iyer said.

NEWARK, Del. — On Sunday, the BobCarpenter Center, where sixth-seededDelaware matched up against 11-seed West Virginia, was deafeningly loud. When No. 3 seed North Carolina takeson Delaware in the second round of theNCAA women’s basketball tournamenttonight, the fans in that arena — Delaware’shome court — promise nothing short of pandemonium.The fervor surrounding the Blue Hensduring the past four years has centered onDelaware’s dynamic hybrid forward/guardElena Delle Donne. The crowd will know her game tonight against the Tar Heelscould be her last. A former Connecticut recruit and thetop player in the nation out of high school,Delle Donne transferred home to Delawareduring her freshman year, where she hasgone on to lead the Blue Hens into thenational spotlight. This season, she is aver-aging 25.5 points per game, and dropped33 points on the Mountaineers in the firstround.“Everybody’s been asking us what we’regoing to do to stop her or whatever,” UNCcoach Sylvia Hatchell said, shaking herhead. “I think maybe we’ll just leave heropen, since everybody else has tried toguard her. That’s the only strategy no one’sused on her yet.”UNC’s 6-foot-6 Waltiea Rolle is tallenough to keep up with the 6-foot-5 DelleDonne in the post, but the All-American’sathleticism and savvy for the game makeher a threat anywhere on the court.She shoots at a 92 percent clip from thefoul line, hits 47.6 percent from beyond thearc, pulls down more than eight reboundsper game, and has blocked 67 shots thisseason.Hatchell mentioned that her team, asit has all season, would simply try to usea variety of defensive schemes during thecourse of the game to keep Delle Donnefrom finding a groove.But the rest of the Delaware team issimilarly solid — the Blue Hens turned the ball over just nine times on Sunday against West Virginia. North Carolina gave the ballup 20 times against Albany.That number, though, is primarily a product of the speed with which the TarHeels play. Tierra Ruffin-Pratt’s 30-pointperformance in UNC’s 59-54 victory against Albany showed Delaware coachTina Martin how important tempo will beagainst the Tar Heels.“She has a lot of swagger about her whenshe steps on the floor,” Martin said. “You’renot going to stop a great player like that. You’re not going to stop her. The only thing you can do is try to contain her and try toplay team defense. We’ve got to be able toslow them down.”

BRIEF

Chapel Hill commuters willhave to wait at least two more weeks to find out if they will berequired to pay for access to localpark-and-ride lots. At a meeting Monday night, theChapel Hill Town Council delayed a decision on a proposed $250 annu-al fee so the town can approachTriangle Transit about contributingfinancially on behalf of its riders.The lots — which are locatedat Eubanks Road, Jones Ferry Road, Southern Village andCarrboro Plaza — are used by many residents who drive to thelots and then commute to loca-tions throughout the Triangle via public transit.The proposed fee would bringin about $81,000 for Chapel Hill,and the University would pay anestimated $150,000 for its stu-dents and employees that use theChapel Hill lots.Council members decidedMonday to revisit the discus-sion on April 10 after askingTriangle Transit to pay for park-and-ride lot users who commute by Triangle Transit rather thanChapel Hill Transit.Mayor Pro Tem Ed Harrisonsaid he was concerned that the fee would lead to a decrease in users.“Triangle Transit staff are cer-tain if the kind of fees we are talk-ing about are put on that lot it willaffect their ridership,” he said.Triangle Transit estimates only a small proportion of Chapel Hillpark-and-ride lot users commuteon Triangle Transit.Mayor Mark Kleinschmidtsaid he thought these commutersshould be an exception.“If people could prove citizenshipof Chapel Hill and that they are notaffiliated with the University, wecould give them a discount. I think it would be great if we could waiveit,” he said. “I don’t think it wouldhurt us too much.”Chapel Hill resident NunoGomes said he is one of the park-and-ride users who commutes toRaleigh on Triangle Transit.“One of the main reasons I usethe bus is to save money,” he said.“I would love to see an exemptionfor people who don’t use the townservices.”Council member Jim Wardsaid it makes more sense to haveTriangle Transit pay for its ridersthan waive the fee. Ward also represents the TownCouncil on the town public transitcommittee, which endorsed thefee on March 19. He said becauseUNC decided to begin charginga fee for its park-and-ride lots,Chapel Hill has to do the same.The University will charge a minimum annual fee of $227 forthe use of its nine park-and-ridelots beginning in August.Brian Litchfield, Chapel HillTransit’s interim director, said if UNC begins charging for park-and-ride lots and Chapel Hill doesnot, people will fill up the free lotsto avoid paying a fee.“We already have capacity issues at some of our park-and-rides. We wouldn’t necessarily beable to handle additional folkscoming,” he said.

They call him “Mr. Recycling.”Lew Woodham, a resident of Carol WoodsRetirement Community on Weaver Dairy Road, has been heading the community’srecycling program for the past 10 years. And considering the community’s standingas the county’s best recycler — an estimated60 percent of its waste is recycled, compostedor repurposed — Woodham has a lot to beproud of.“It feels very good to be so successful,” Woodham said. “It’s kind of like being the bestof the best, because the county is one of the best recyclers in the state.But a recent proposal to privatize the coun-ty’s recycling services could threaten Carol Woods’ success.The Carol Woods recycling program hasa mutually beneficial relationship with thecounty.The county provides information and sup-port to Carol Woods while using the commu-nity’s enthusiasm for recycling as an examplefor similar complexes, said Orange County Solid Waste Management Director Gayle Wilson. Wilson said if the county moves forward with the proposal, the relationship with Carol Woods could unravel.“As an entity, they are the most impas-sioned recyclers in the county,” Wilson said.“If privatization went through a company  would probably replace us, and who knowsif they would build the same relationship wehave with Carol Woods.”The 120-acre community is home to morethan 450 residents who recycle everythingfrom food scraps to eyeglasses.“Especially in a senior community, if you want a successful recycling program youhave to make it easy,” Woodham said, as hepointed to separate boxes in the mailroomfor mixed paper, plastic bags, eyeglasses and batteries.Chutes along the walls and clearly markedreceptacles make recycling intuitive for allresidents, Woodham said.He said these ideas come from any mem- bers of the community who are passionateabout recycling.“It’s a community with a lot of vested inter-est,” Woodham said.Dick Wood, a volunteer recycling leaderat Carol Woods, said that though he has only  been at Carol Woods for seven years, he has been recycling for at least 20 years.“I think it’s more than cool — it’s a wonder-ful thing to do,” Wood said. “There’s so muchmaterial that gets wasted that can actually beused again.”He said the most challenging part of theprogram is making sure people do it correctly.“You can’t mix bottles with paper and stuff,” Wood said.The Orange County Board of Commissioners will hold a public hearingabout privatizing recycling services on April23.But for now, Carol Woods will continue to work with the county to keep up its positionas the best recycler.“It’s something we take great pride in,” Wood said. “There are so many people here who realize there are important things likerecycling to do.”

Under federal budget sequestration, UNCcould lose approximately 31 work-study jobs beginning the next academic year unless it canfind a way to make up the funds. As part of the 2011 deal to raise the fed-eral debt limit, Congress passed the BudgetControl Act, which mandated spending cutsof $1.2 trillion, known as sequestration, whichtook effect March 1.If sequestration stands, the University willlose $84,000 in federal work-study funding,said Shirley Ort, associate provost and directorof scholarships and student aid.The average work-study student is awarded$2,700, Ort said.“We need every dollar that we have in theFederal Work-Study Program,” she said.She said if sequestration stands, her office will work to make up the difference lost.“What we would do is try to make up thatloss in federal funds with additional University money, so it wouldn’t result in fewer work opportunities for students,” she said.Ort said the University would not losemoney from the Federal SupplementalEducational Opportunity Grant Program orfrom Federal Pell Grants, both of which aresheltered under sequestration.Tabatha Turner, associate director of scholar-ships and student aid, said the University has not yet figured out where it would get the replace-ment money if sequestration is not avoided.“Operating under federal regulations, we’reused to not having control over a lot of the deci-sions that are made that directly affect us andour students, so that is nothing new for us,” shesaid. “But, certainly, any time there are cutsmade to any of the programs we have availablefor students, it’s very frustrating.“This change is particularly frustrating because it happened because of a lack of gov-ernment working together.”Zach Kaplan, a member of the execu-tive board for the Campus Y who also holdsa work-study job, took part in a trip to thenation’s capitol as part of the ACC StudentEducational Advocacy Trip to advocate forfederal funding for student aid and research inthe face of sequestration earlier this month.He said the timing of the trip was frustrat-ing because sequestration had already takeneffect, but he was glad representatives listenedto their personal perspectives.“My work-study job has taught me so much,not only in terms of work effort — having a job

 while also being a student — but it’s allowedme to work with the community, which I never would have gotten to do if it weren’t for work-study,” Kaplan said.He said he is worried about UNC’s ability tocontinue funding work-study jobs.“It’s a tricky situation because if the govern-ment isn’t funding the University, then theUniversity has to come up with it on theirown, and the University is struggling with itsown budgeting issues,” he said.“A lot of times, work-study just falls throughthe cracks.”
