Homelesssupportgrows incounty

Assistant City Editor
 After 10 months on the streets of Chapel Hill,Michael A. Nicholson Jr. thinks he’s finally foundhome.Nicholson, a homeless man who spends his dayson Franklin Street, said he chose to stay in ChapelHill after getting connected to different programsfor the homeless population in Orange County.“I know Orange County is doing the best they can,”he said. “Ever since I have beenhere I have been blessed.”The Orange County Partnership to EndHomelessness released itsannual report Monday, detail-ing the progress it made dur-ing 2012 and highlightingmany of the programs thatNicholson has taken advan-tage of during his time inChapel Hill. According to the report,the partnership was ableto secure housing, mentalhealth care and other neededservices for seven of the most vulnerable people experienc-ing long term homelessnesslast year.Jamie Rohe, homelessprograms coordinator for thecounty, said this effort wasmade possible through col-laboration with the 100,000Homes Task Force, a nation- wide effort to combat home-lessness.“When you look at housingseven people, it doesn’t sound like a lot,” Rohe said.“But I think seven is amazing because these areseven that people never thought could be housed.”The county’s involvement with the 100,000Homes Task Force began last February. The initia-tive brings together different community organiza-tions committed to ending homelessness and get-ting people off the streets.“It’s about targeting the most vulnerable peopleand targeting all our resources for those people,”Rohe said.The report also details the partnership’s new JobPartners Program, which helps clients find, andprepare for, employment.“2013 is the year of Job Partners,” Rohe said.“I think we’re really going to start getting a lot of people enrolled in that program.”
The Orange County Partnership to EndHomelessness is part of the effort.

Bill could deterrenewable energy

Legislators at the N.C. General Assembly will discuss a bill today that opponents say could derail thestate’s renewable energy industry.House Bill 298, currently in a commerce and job developmentsubcommittee, would lift a require-ment on the types of energy publicelectric utilities use.Current law, enacted in 2007,requires utilities to derive 12.5 per-cent of their retail sales from renew-able energy sources by 2021.“North Carolina has the most effi-cient policies in the Southeast to pro-mote renewable energy,” said MichaelShore, CEO of the Asheville-basedsolar energy company FLS Energy. “Ithas been widely successful in growingthis industry from scratch. According to a Solar MarketInsight report released last month,the average retail price of electricity in the U.S. increased by 35 percentfrom 2001 to 2012.The average installed price of a photovoltaic system dropped nearly

Televangelist Pat Robertson blast-ed America yesterday, saying Americansaren’t experiencing heavenly miracles because they’re too “sophisticated.”“People overseas didn’t go to Ivy Leagueschools,” he said, praising “simple” and“humble” Africans who just believe Godloves them instead of talking about evolu-tion and all that science-y stuff.

If not, and you’re feeling masochistic, just delve into the #beliebershashtag on Instagram or find one of the billions of Tumblrsthat reblogs pictures of skinny legs, Starbucks cups and girls in forests.It’s a weird world out there. Weirder still, the internet activity of thesekids is changing the way parents shop for their kids’ beds. Yeah, apparently double beds are now a “must-have for childhood,” the Daily Mail reports.Here’s a depressing sentence: “Experts … put it down to youngsters wanting to sprawl out next to their laptop or computer tablet in theirrooms, rather than playing outside.” Single bed sales are falling, kids haveiPads, and you’re right to feel a quiet sense of dread about the future.

Irishpub willreplaceKildare’s
By Marissa Bane
Staff Writer
One Irish pub out. One Irish pub in.Fitzgerald’s Irish Pub, a family-ownedrestaurant based in Charlotte, is set to openat 206 W. Franklin St., the space previously occupied by Kildare’s Irish Pub, in early May.Kevin Marcuse, owner of the pub, said he had been looking to expand within North Carolina for a while, and he had always been attracted tothe Chapel Hill market.“Chapel Hill provides a great opportunity forour concept to be successful for many years,” hesaid. When Kildare’s closed on March 14 after theowner failed to pay rent on the space, Marcusefound his opportunity.“We had been actively looking for a space onFranklin Street, and when Kildare’s closed, theopportunity to bring Fitzgerald’s to Chapel Hillpresented itself,” Marcuse said. Andrew Dawson, former managing partnerof the Chapel Hill Kildare’s, was in the processof buying the Chapel Hill franchise when itshut down. He said he is no longer pursuingfranchising the restaurant.Plans for the new restaurant’s opening areprogressing quickly.Marcuse said he does not plan to make any structural renovations to the building.“However, we want to do our best to replicate what the Fitzgerald’s in Charlotte looks like,” hesaid. “The decorations, color scheme, etc. willmirror the original Fitzgerald’s restaurant.”The new restaurant will offer the same beerselection and menu — which includes itemsranging from burgers to corned beef and cabbage.Marcuse said the only difference between thetwo restaurants will be their interaction with thecommunity.“We plan to have loyalty cards that will providecollege students with certain discounts,” he said.He said he wants the restaurant to become a part of the community and reach out to everyone— not just students.UNC freshman Joy Sabattus said she thinksit will be interesting to see another restaurantopen on Franklin Street.“If Fitzgerald’s seems like a unique restaurant,I will definitely try it out,” she said.Marcuse said managing staff will be arrivingin Chapel Hill within the week.On Monday, Fitzgerald’s hired a generalmanager, who is also a business partner for therestaurant. And Marcuse said the restaurant is currently hiring for all other positions, including bartendersand servers. Applications for employment will beavailable on the restaurant’s website.The pub will be open seven days a week forlunch and dinner.“We have the kind of setting that will do wellin Chapel Hill,” Marcuse said.

Q&A with
Will Leimenstoll
 As his tenure came to an end Tuesday, former Student Body President Will Leimenstoll sat down with Daily Tar Heel staff writer Trevor Casey to reflect onhis time in office and what helearned from the position.
Daily Tar Heel: 
Looking back a few years from now, what do you think your legacy will be?
Will Leimenstoll:
 We’re goingto have a new chancellor soon,and I’m really glad that I gotto be a part of that selectionprocess. Access and affordability that’s where I spent a lot of time,and I really hope it continues tomatter in the years to come.
 What has been your bestday in office?
There have been somany. I’d say the days I got tospend working with my execu-tive branch officers — those arealways my favorite meetingsand my favorite memories.The day after we had thetuition and fee advisory task force that set tuition, I felt real-ly good about how I was able tohave an impact on that.
 What has been yourhardest day?
I would say that the day of the memorial service for FaithHedgepeth was really challeng-ing for me for a lot of reasons.
 What are you mostproud of doing?
The two most tangibleprojects were maintaining thefunding for financial aid fromthe state — that was a big effort with the (UNC-system) Boardof Governors, and money.unc.edu is a website that we built,and I’m very proud of it. That’sa very tangible and concreteproject that people can and douse now.
 What are you mostproud of your administrationaccomplishing?
I really appreciatehow we’ve really worked welltogether this whole year. We’vecertainly had discussions anddebates and disagreed on things but there was never a moment where I wasn’t excited to see my executive branch officer team.
How stressful was your job?
It’s definitely a lot of  work. You can turn it off — I feltlike there were times where Ifelt like I personally was takinga break, but in the eyes of every-one else you can never not be inthat role until it’s actually over. At the end of the day, theschool is so great and there areso many amazing people thatit’s pretty easy to justify puttingin those hours.
How did you manage being student body presidentand a student?
Honestly, I just took it

‘A time of flux’
By Andy Willard
Staff Writer
 As a new group of student governmentleaders was inaugurated Tuesday night,many acknowledged a series of complexchallenges the University will continue toface in the next year — but said they remainhopeful.“Carolina is in a time of flux,” saidStudent Body President Christy Lambdenat the inauguration of the 2013-14 legisla-tive and executive officers.He said the issues they will face includecoordinating with the new chancellor, fac-ing further budget cuts and continuing dis-cussions on how to improve student safety.Other student government branches also voiced their concerns on being leaders in time of change.Charlie Loeser, the graduate and profes-sional student honor court outreach coor-dinator, said the body’s traditional role will be challenged in light of recent, broad criti-cism related to sexual assault cases.He said there are proposals being con-sidered that would place a faculty memberon the court, potentially giving him or herthe power to vote on cases.“We are working to avoid that because we feel it would compromise the principlesof the student-run honor court,” Loesersaid.He said his main goal will be to spreadawareness of how the honor system func-tions and how potential changes will affectstudents.The only position to not be filled wasstudent body treasurer.Junior Matt Farley, who Lambden nomi-nated for the position, did not receive enough votes on March 26 to be approved by StudentCongress. The Student Code stipulates thatexecutive officer nominees must receive two-thirds of the vote in order to be approved.Lambden — whose parents flew in fromEngland to attend the event — said hehad no comment on how the search for a replacement is going.Paige Comparato, speaker of StudentCongress, advised the newly elected repre-sentatives of Student Congress to keep theirconstituents in mind when serving in theirroles next year.“Think back to our purpose, representstudents — work on their behalf,” she said.“Hold all of your peers to this high stan-dard.”Lambden said the foundation left by former Student Body President WillLeimenstoll is a solid start for his adminis-tration.He added he is confident in his team’sability to advocate for students and create a  better community for them.“We will come through the various chal-lenges the University faces together, andI know that when we do, Carolina will bestronger as a result,” he said.

 Almost four months after theMartin Report was released,Chancellor Holden Thorp has finally announced the panel that will lead a discussion on the balance of academ-ics and athletics at the University.Thorp revealed on Monday a five-member panel of outside leaders inhigher education and athletics — led by Hunter Rawlings, president of the Association of American Universities— who will speak April 19.Thorp originally said public dis-cussions would start right after theMartin Report was released, andfaculty have been vocal in question-ing when they would begin.The panel’s goal is to presentrecommendations to improve therelationship between athletics andacademics at UNC, which has beengrappling with a related scandal.The other four panel members areJames Delany, commissioner of theBig 10 Conference; Bob Malekoff,associate professor and sport studiesdepartment chairman at GuilfordCollege; Amy Perko, executivedirector of the Knight Commissionon Intercollegiate Athletics; andPatricia Timmons-Goodson, formerassociate justice of the N.C. SupremeCourt.Thorp has invited five additionalspeakers — including ESPN broad-caster Jay Bilas — to participate inthe conversation, which will be heldat the Carolina Inn.Karen Moon, director of UNCNews Services, said the University  will pay for speakers’ travel expenses.Malekoff said he has studied theintersection of athletics and aca-demics for many years.“Looking at this whole idea of  ways that athletics, academics andstudent life can be integrated —really with the goal of providing aspositive an educational experienceas you can for students who areparticipating.” Athletic Director Bubba Cunningham, a speaker, said theevent is an opportunity to promotenew approaches to resolving tension between athletics and education.“We’ve talked since I’ve beenhere about openness and dialogueand how UNC can not only be a participant in a national discussion, but help lead and shape some of thefuture of college athletics,” he said.He said he will be speaking about where UNC is in regards to athleticsand education, and how it has got-ten to that point.“That would include somewhatof a timeline history of change,” hesaid. “And how we tried to createcompetitive equity through limitingscholarships and coaching positions,and having broad-based programs.”Faculty Athletics CommitteeChairwoman Joy Renner, also a speaker, will be discussing the com-mittee’s activities in the past year.Renner said she hopes the panel will help develop a clearer philoso-phy regarding UNC’s athletics.Malekoff said the diversity of thepanel members’ backgrounds will bekey in understanding the issues andmaking recommendations.
Options to improve therelationship between thetwo will be presented.

Former Student Body President Will Leimenstoll sat down with TheDaily Tar Heel just hours before Christy Lambden’s inauguration.
“The meeting on the 19th will beinteresting both from the standpointof how it might help our panel, andalso just learning about the issuefrom different perspectives,” he said.

day by day — trying to strikea balance every day betweenacademics, student government,social and health.I’m sure there were days where either I was too socialand days where I tried too hard, but I think that by trying totackle it day by day it was moremanageable than trying totackle the year as a whole.
 What advice do youhave to give future student body presidents?
I’ve told Christy this, andthis is advice that came to mefrom a University administratorat the beginning of my term: You just have to be true to your-self, and that sounds so cheesy  but it’s just so freaking true.The times when I felt like I was doing a bad job were whenI wasn’t acting like myself.
 Would you do anythingdifferently?
I would’ve reached out tomembers of Student Congressearlier. I wish I had had a betterrelationship with that organiza-tion this year and I think thatpart of the blame falls on mefor that.
 Would you do it again if  you were given the choice?
 Yeah, I would. I wouldn’tdo it for two years in a row, but if I were a junior deciding whether or not to do this againthen yes, I would.
