 After 17 years serving Orange County as oneof the most liberal voices in the N.C. Senate,Sen. Ellie Kinnaird, D-Orange, is leaving anincreasingly conservative legislature.Kinnaird, 81, announced Monday thatshe was resigning from her seat to pursue a grassroots project to make sure people canstill vote following the legislature’s passageof a bill that will require voters to have a govern-ment-issued photo ID.“It’s a difficult deci-sion, but one that I madefeeling confident thatit was the right deci-sion,” Kinnaird said inan interview. “I could notaccomplish anything inthe second session.”The N.C. General Assembly adjourned fromits regular session late lastmonth, and the short ses-sion is in May.Kinnaird, who is in herninth term in the N.C. Senate, said she will work with churches and community groupsto ensure that people have an appropriatephoto ID and know where they’re voting.She said now, if voters go to the wrong pre-cinct, their vote will not count.“I’ve been working for several months onthis, and I realized it was something that couldreally make a difference,” she said. “Perhaps wecould turn this tide, that’s the goal.”

Ferrel Guillory , a UNC journalism pro-fessor who specializes in Southern politics,said Kinnaird has been one of the most lib-eral state legislators.“She has been the quintessential OrangeCounty representative in the legislature,” hesaid. “She’s been less effective in the last few  years because she’s been the minority, butshe’s had a long and distinguished career in both the local and the state government.“I don’t think anybody would begrudge herthe opportunity to resign and open up the seatfor someone else — let a new leader emerge.”Matt Hughes, chairman of the OrangeCounty Democratic Party, said he has hadseveral people contact him about potentially replacing Kinnaird.“Needless to say, there have been people who have been interested for several years inthe Senate seat,” he said, adding that “com-

Folt’s LongRoad Ahead
By Amanda Albright
University Editor
Chancellor Carol Folt doesn’t want to tellpeople what the University needs to change.Instead, she wants to listen to what stake-holders believe needs to be done.In her second month on the job, Folt’s priority is to hear from students and faculty, which she believes will help her meet the challenges thatsurround her chancellorship.Even with three ongoing federal investigationsinto the University’s handling of sexual assaultcases, questions about the relationship betweenacademics and athletics and budget uncertainty,Folt is confident in her ability to juggle it all.“There are many issues that every schoolfaces,” she said. “And I come to Carolina excitedto work on them.”Folt, who started her position July 1, previously served as interim president at Dartmouth College.She has spent her time since then meeting withstudents, faculty, Board of Governors membersand legislators, and she has more talks in store.“Already, Provost (Jim) Dean and I have a great plan to go around to all of the schools andsee what individual schools see as their opportu-nities and challenges,” she said.James Moeser, who served as chancellor from2000 to 2008, said it is important to listen to asmany students and faculty members as possiblerather than immediately implement a platform.“In Folt’s case, it’s a totally new institution,and in Dean’s case it’s an institution he knowsas a dean,” he said. “They’ve both come into very new and different situations. There’s a lot tolearn, in the first weeks it’s a matter of learningabout the different parts.”Sallie Shuping-Russell, a member of the UNCBoard of Trustees since 2007, said she is confi-dent in Folt’s strategy.“This year is more a year of listening, and next year is more a year of acting,” she said.

Much of what Folt will listen to could involvethe University’s treatment of sexual assault cases— a subject that Folt is no stranger to.The federal probes into UNC include aninvestigation by the U.S. Department of Education to decide whether the University underreported sexual assault cases on campus. At Dartmouth, a similar federal

Student Body President Christy Lambden said representing studentinterests is always on his mind —even if that means he has to go upagainst an administrator. And in light of federal complaintsfiled against the University, allegingthe underreporting and mishandlingof sexual assault cases on campus,he said it is clear that his role is to bean advocate for students.Lambden has been an activemember of the University’s Sexual Assault Task Force, which has beenmeeting since June to create rec-ommendations on how to improve

UNC’s sexual assault policies. The21-member task force includesadministrators, students, profes-sors and sexual assault profession-als.Of his role, Lambden said he isn’t worried about having to butt heads with administrators.“If that requires me to say that theUniversity needs to change some-thing or that I get in a debate withan administrator, then I will step upto that role,” he said.Former Student Body President Will Leimenstoll said he was in a similar position last year advocat-

ing for gender-neutral housingand against out-of-state tuitionincreases.He said debates between admin-istrators could get heated — but hefound that most administrators aremore than willing to speak out on behalf of students.“Advocacy on most issues is typi-cally warmly welcomed and support-ed by administrators,” Leimenstollsaid in an email.He said most opposition to advo-cacy comes from Raleigh, not SouthBuilding.“Unfortunately it’s a little trickierto communicate with folks out-side of Chapel Hill — hence therecent shameful BOG decision to ban gender nonspecific housing,Leimenstoll said.Former Student Body PresidentMary Cooper said she had to formpartnerships and teams with admin-istrators to reach a compromise that works for everyone.“It’s more about collaboration andunderstanding problems holisti-cally,” she said. “You’re able to bringabout more change that way.”Christi Hurt, interim Title IXcoordinator and chairwoman of the Sexual Assault Task Force, saidshe has been working closely withLambden.She said Lambden is in tune withUNC’s diverse student body.“Over and over again he hasamazed me with his command of the dynamics of the process and thedepth to which he understands thestudents and his ability to strategizeand help us move forward,” she said.Jacob Morse, student body vicepresident, said before Lambden joined the task force, he listened to a  variety of stakeholders in the issue,including students and members of the community.Lambden also assembled his owntask force last spring to receive stu-dent input about the policies.“The dialogue didn’t end whenChristy went to the table, but itdidn’t begin there either,” Morsesaid.Lambden said students canexpect to see real changes thissemester, including increased train-ing for faculty and the benefits of having more people employed solely to address sexual violence. Morsesaid a representative for students isa person who is a sounding box forthe status quo — but an advocatefor students is someone who takesa position and works for it in theinterest of the people and the cause.“He has done a good job, andevery day when he goes to work onthings he keeps in mind who he is working for, and that is what anadvocate does,” Morse said.

For the second year in a row, the Howard and LillianLee Scholars Charter School will not open on time.The State Board of Education denied the school’srequest to delay its opening, said Joel Medley , the directorof the state’s office of charter schools. He said the schoolhas to reapply for a new charter by Dec. 6 if the administra-tion wants to open in the 2014-15 academic year.Medley said the state board denied the request for delay after reviewing the school’s difficulties with opening.The school applied for two other charters but has failed toopen on time due to issues with facility and management.“The state board, looking at the situation, (saw) thatthe group had received two charters and had not beenable to open either one on time,” Medley said.The school originally applied for a fast-track charter, which would haveallowed it to open in August2012, and it voluntarily gavethe charter back. The schoolthen reapplied in the normalround and received the char-ter that would have given ita full year and allowed it toopen this month, had it not been for the ongoing man-agement issues.“Anytime that you aregranted a charter and do notopen as planned, that undercuts some of the community support that may have been there,” Medley said.The school originally partnered with NationalHeritage Academies, a for-profit charter school manage-ment company located in Grand Rapids, Mich. But theNational Heritage Academies dropped the Howard andLillian Lee Scholars Charter School in March.Medley said the board’s decision does not mean theschool’s next charter application will be denied.“Is it feasible that they can get an additional chartergranted to them? Absolutely,” he said. “You can’t forecastthat far down the road.The charter school has long been a concern for localminority groups and education activists who worry theschool will segregate low-income students.The Rev. Robert Campbell, president of the ChapelHill-Carrboro NAACP, has openly opposed the charterschool. He said he believes the school would only draw inunderperforming black children, keeping those children ina separated environment.The school was originally created to close the achieve-ment gap in Orange County, according to the school’soriginal charter submitted to the state board in 2011.But Campbell said he thinks there are better ways of addressing that gap than creating a separate school.“You have people now coming up with ways to getinvolved with the school — get involved in the academicside of making sure each kid has the necessary environ-ment in order to learn.”

Carolina Brewery is a favorite forstudents and Chapel Hill residentsalike — but to meet the growing upwardtrend in popularity and taste for craft beer, owner Robert Poitras is changingthings up. According to the North Carolina Brewers Guild, there were 12 brewer-ies in the state when Carolina Brewery opened in 1995.This number has grown steadily since then — there are currently 79 breweries in North Carolina, includ-ing two in Chapel Hill and two inCarrboro.In addition to trademarks like Sky Blue Golden Ale and Flagship IPA,Poitras said he recently decided to lethis brewers be more creative and work on a small-batch series of brews thatcan only be found at the Chapel Hilllocation.The small-batch series will include brews that have been popular in thepast, as well as experimental mixturesof flavors and ingredients, Poitras said.He said the older Franklin Street Lager will be back soon, as well as a black IPA.“We don’t offer any domestic beers,and we never have,” Poitras said. “We’re

New Israel-focused ad comes to Chapel Hill buses

State budget cuts are hav-ing a trickle-down effect on theUniversity, and this year its health-care facilities will feel the impact.The budget calls for a $15 millioncut to the UNC School of Medicineand an $8 million cut to theUniversity Cancer Research Fund, which is part of the UNC LinebergerComprehensive Cancer Center.The fund, which was created in2007 with the opening of the N.C.Cancer Hospital, receives $50 mil-lion in state money each year.But this year, the N.C. General Assembly removed the section of the budget that commits to $50 millionannually, leaving the fund with anestimated $42 million.Dr. Shelton Earp, director of the Lineberger Center, said thisamounts to a 16 percent cut for thefund. Earp said he is concerned this will significantly compromise thequality of the center’s work.“Virtually everything that has been supported will be reduced tosome extent.”Earp said the cuts would reducethe number of projects the faculty could work on, including on drugdevelopment and genomics.The center has recruited 140 facul-ty in the past five years — but reten-tion will become increasingly difficult because of the budget cuts, he said.The cuts come as a result of a decrease in the state’s Tobacco TrustFund, which is one of the mainsources of funding for the CancerResearch Fund. Earp said the money  will instead be shifted to the state’sgeneral revenue fund.He is also concerned that havingreduced faculty and resources willmake for stiff competition amonghospitals nationwide for out-of-statefunding. Last year, the LinebergerCenter received $88 million in out-of-state funding — most of whichcame from National Institutes of Health.Earp said faculty members aredisappointed with the cuts, but hesaid he remains optimistic that thecenter will pull through.“It’s our job to absorb these cutsand come out as strong as we possibly can,” he said.UNC's School of Medicine willhave to deal with a $15 million bud-get cut, but spokeswoman JenniferJames said it is too early to tell which areas will be affected.James said budget cuts are noth-ing new to the school, especially during the economic downturn.“We’re confident we can do itagain,” she said.Bill Roper, dean of the School of Medicine, said in a statement thathe hopes state politicians will recog-nize the impact of the school.“Moving forward, we hope tocontinue working with our legisla-tors to help them understand thatas the state’s largest medical school, we have a mission to train the nextgeneration of physicians and otherhealth professionals,” he said.UNC’s School of Medicine was top-ranked in primary care by U.S. News& World Report this year.

 As Chapel Hill Transit prepares to takedown the advertisement that prompted thetown to change its bus policy last year, a new ad in opposition to it has just been put up.The original ad featured two men, onePalestinian and one Israeli, both holding theirgrandchildren, with a tagline that read, “Join with us. Build peace with justice and equality.End U.S. military aid to Israel.”That ad, taken out by Chapel Hill'sChurch of Reconciliation, is scheduled to be removed from Chapel Hill Transit buseslater this week because its one-year contracthas expired.The new ad, which began running on all of the town’s 98 buses this weekend, depicts anIsraeli boy and a Palestinian boy embracing.Its tagline reads “Israel Seeks a Partner forPeace.”It was placed by Triangle-based organiza -tion Voice for Israel and national organizationStand With Us. Both organizations describethe new ad as pro-Israel.Michael Ross, chairman of Voice forIsrael, said the ad was a response to thead taken out by Chapel Hill’s Church of Reconciliation.The church’s ad advocated for the end tomilitary aid to Israel. It sparked controversy  when it was first put on Chapel Hill Transit buses last August.Ross said his organization decided to placean ad because it was offended by the currentone.Sharon Shohfi, chairwoman of the Churchof Reconciliation’s Salaam Shalom committee,said she doesn’t have a problem with the new ad.“The purpose of our bus ad was to spark dialogue,” she said.But Shohfi said her church does object tothe attitudes of the opponents of the church’sad.“They’re calling our ad and what we standfor anti-Israel and that’s a total mischaracter-ization,” she said.Getting people to ask questions was theimpetus for the Chapel Hill Town Councilreviewing its bus advertising policy lastDecember.The Church of Reconciliation’s ad waspulled from buses shortly after it firstappeared last August because it failed to list a contact for the church.It was placed back when the information was added.
Protecting perspectives
Complaints about the ad prompted thetown to rewrite its bus advertising policy.The town council declared buses a limitedpublic forum. The new policy permits any advertisement, including those expressingpolitical and religious views, on buses aslong as it is respectful and includes a dis-claimer.Town council member Lee Storrow said thenew advertisement is in line with the town’sadvertising policy.“It’s a respectful ad that articulates a view -point,” he said.Storrow said town and Chapel Hill Transitstaff review ads before they go up on buses.“It’s our job to make sure we are protect-ing a diverse range of perspectives in terms of speech,” he said.Despite the differences between the ad herchurch placed and the latest ad, Shohfi said
