Just a short walk from the tunnel atKenan Stadium, the North Carolina footballequipment staff is hard at work assemblingand organizing UNC’s new uniforms inanticipation of Thursday’s matchup againstNo. 10 Miami. Assistant Equipment Manager JasonFreeman has seen the recruits make their way to his office during tours. They admirethe wall-to-wall dedication to all things Nike.The recruits try on uniforms, posing for pic-tures in front of their parents.“We set up the mannequins and let themsee what they’ll be wearing in the future, so itis a big part of what they see,” said Freeman, who has worked for UNC football since he was a student in 1995. “The gloves and theshoes. Carolina blue is a color they’re notgoing to see anywhere else in the country.One of UNC’s three new uniforms — a helmet-to-cleat black ensemble — hasdrawn particular attention. Thursday night’snationally televised game will mark the firsttime a Tar Heel squad has taken the field inall-black gear, and the game has implicationsfor UNC’s present and future.Coach Larry Fedora understands that uni-forms aren’t the only way to court recruits, but he’s looking for any advantage he can get.“It may help on only one kid,” Fedora said. “If it helps on one kid, then I’m all forit because we need to continue to upgradetalent-wise every year and that’s how we’regoing to get better.”

 An August 2013 ESPN.com poll of 700recruits showed just 3 percent of respon-dents considered uniforms the most impor-tant factor in choosing a school. Uniformsranked behind academics, coaching, playingtime, school tradition, location, experiencesending players to the NFL and televisionexposure, according to the poll.If recruits are interested, UNC has plenty of athletic apparel to offer.The Tar Heels’ all-sport, 10-year contract with Nike, which was signed in 2009 andmade retroactive to 2008, is worth $37.7 million and covers shoes, uniforms, coachinggear, balls and other equipment.The athletic department has an allotmentfrom Nike to pay for coaches’ and players’ ath-letic apparel, and all costs beyond the allot-ment must come out of the athletic budget.Dominic Morelli, UNC football’s equipmentmanager, said the three new sets of uniformscost about $75,000, with Nike picking up allcosts within UNC’s allotment. In a typical year with no redesign, Morelli said, the team wouldspend about $30,000 to $40,000.Freshman wide receiver Ryan Switzer said while the uniforms were a draw, his decisionhad more to do with the coaching staff.“Anytime you’re playing a sport, you love thegear and more uniforms mean more gear, so with coach Fedora and them decking us out with multiple uniforms and helmets — it wasone thing,” Switzer said. “I wouldn’t say it was a  big, big reason, but it’s something that’s nice.”Scout.com ranked UNC’s 2013 recruit-ing class 29th in the nation among 126 FBS

UNC’s participation in October’s BreastCancer Awareness Month ranges from oneend of campus to the other — and for some,it’s personal.Emily Cude, president of UNC’s chapter of Zeta Tau Alpha, said she knows firsthand theconsequences of breast cancer.She said her grandmother is a breast can-cer survivor who visits UNC every spring toparticipate in the sorority’s Franklin 5K.“For me as a woman, I think this is a causethat is near and dear to all of our hearts,”Cude said.Cude said the sorority will be having a Think Pink month this year instead of just a week so itcan raise more money and awareness.She said the women are distributing instruc-tions of proper breast self-examination meth-ods and doling out pink ribbons to students. And as campus groupsraise awareness, UNCresearchers are workingto combat the disease that will kill approximately 40,000 women in theUnited States this year. At UNC’s LinebergerComprehensive CancerCenter, professor of genetics Charles Perou isresearching the geneticcauses of the disease.Perou runs a lab of 18people that researches geneexpression profiling, whichinvolves looking at whatgenes are expressed in breast cancer tumors.“It’s like trying to find the roots of a tree,”he said.Perou said his research on genetics hasled to a laboratory test that can determine which subtype of breast cancer a patient has.The test will also provide a measure of thatpatient’s overall prognosis.“If you want to kill the tree, you can chopit down, but it might grow back. If we can killthe roots, the whole thing is going to die,” hesaid about the relationship between genes and breast cancer.
While researchers fight disease,students raise awareness.

PlayMakers performs poolside

PlayMakers Repertory Company is building a pool that will soon be full of 15 tons of water in the theater for its upcoming shows, “Metamorphoses” and “The Tempest.
By Jaleesa Jones
Staff Writer
PlayMakers Repertory Company hopes to make a splash in thePaul Green Theatre — featuring a 15-ton heated pool as part of the setfor its rotating repertory of Mary Zimmerman’s “Metamorphoses” and William Shakespeare’s “The Tempest.Performances of “The Tempest” and“Metamorphoses” will start Nov. 2 and3, respectively. In order to give theatertechnicians ample time to prepare thecomplex set, no other performances will be held in the theater until then.Both productions explore thehuman desire for change and are pred-icated upon themes of love, releaseand redemption, said Joseph Haj,PlayMakers’ producing artistic directorand co-director for the plays.“We’re thrilled to share these twoplays in conversation with one anoth-er,” he said. “Both are plays that take water as their central metaphor, andthe opportunity to explore them bothon alternating evenings is going to be, I think, very special for our com-munity.”Haj wouldn’t disclose the exact costof the pool, but said the price was sig-nificant. Preparation for the play man-dated an acute awareness of the water’simpact on artistic elements.For Jade Bettin, the costume design-er for PlayMakers and the co-costumedesigner for the plays, that entailedmaking costume plots — she listedactors by scene appearances and classi-fied how wet their outfits would get ineach scene. She then identified whichcostumes required two sets.Fabric types and the reaction of dyesin the pool presented additional con-cerns. As a solution, Bettin said naturalfibers were chosen and dunk tests wereperformed to test the impact of chlori-nated water on the fabric.Bettin said many afternoon conver-sations revolved around underclothing.“You know, this is going to be a wetT-shirt contest. Like, what are they  wearing underneath? What do we wantto see? Because we’re going to see it.The fabric will be transparent,” she said. While Bettin said that PlayMakers isnot afraid of nudity, they don’t want itto be a point of distraction.For Jan Chambers, the co-scenicand co-costume designer for the plays,the aesthetic challenge was in balanc-ing the world of the plays with thestructural capabilities of the shop.“We had to think about it accord-ing to the engineering requests thatthe shop gave us so the water would bedistributed in a way that could be sup-ported,” Chambers said. “For one thing, we couldn’t have done the pool withoutremoving the festival theater deck thathas been in there for the last 25 years.”But the removal of the thrust andinstallation of the pool wasn’t easy,said Adam Maxfield, technical directorfor PlayMakers.“We took everything down to themote level, which is our base level. Atthat point, then, we started into talks with the designers about how much water, where the water would be,Maxfield said.

 As part of an advertis-ing campaign for his new social media site, sophomoreTaylor Robinette emailedapproximately 17,000 studentsTuesday under the pretense of an Alert Carolina message.The email was promot-ing the social media site hehelped found, called Bevii, andsaid police were investigatinga “report of innovation” onFranklin Street. The email alsoclaimed there were “shots fired”against “outdated social media.”“I think that there was a lit-tle bit of negative reaction, butI think there was some posi-tive reaction and people whothought it was fun,” Robinettesaid.Robinette said Bevii set upan automatic mailing list a few months ago after they saw thatthe domain name “alertcarolina.com” had not been registered.Stan Waddell, interimchief technology officer forUNC Information Technology Services, said ITS blocked boththe website where the emailoriginated and the Bevii sitein order to prevent furtheremails.“The real danger is thatsomeone would see that emailand not get all the context andthink something really is hap-pening,” Waddell said.Robinette said the emailaddresses were collected overtime from the UNC directory.Ramon Padilla, associate vice chancellor and deputchief information officer forITS, said had the personresponsible for the emailnot been associated with theUniversity, UNC would havesought legal action.Robinette said he contactedUNC’s Department of PublicSafety to apologize for the inci-dent. He said no disciplinary actions have been taken yet.Junior Alex Adams said she was walking out of an exam when she received the alert,and had to read it twice beforeshe realized it was a joke.She said it was particularly insensitive in light of the coun-try’s history of mass shootings.“I understand that it’simportant to get the word outabout an up-and-coming busi-ness,” Adams said. “But it’s alsoimportant to realize what’sgoing on around us.”

Perhaps Waelchli and her husbandcould have made a trip to the next-closest Wendy’s, which is 10 minutesaway in the next town, or perhaps it just wouldn’t be the same. It’s sad.

Many North Carolina military veteranshave been plagued by tuition inconsisten-cies in the UNC system for two years, butthe system Board of Governors took a steplast week to fix student veterans’ difficul-ties.The Post-9/11 GI Bill — which providesarmed services veterans with financial aidfor higher education — was changed by Congress in 2011 to no longer cover the dif-ference in out-of-state tuition for veterans.Many veterans who were stationed out of state are not considered North Carolina residents after they leave active service.During last week’s Board of Governorsmeeting, members unanimously passed a resolution from the board’s special military planning committee that requests a policy change from the N.C. General Assembly that would give the board the authority todetermine residency for veterans.“Active-duty members in the armed ser- vices usually don’t start making plans togo to school until a few months away fromexiting active service,” said Ann Marie Beall,the UNC system’s director of military edu-cation.“By the time they come into one of ourschools and say they’re interested in attend-ing, they don’t meet the requirements forin-state tuition and there isn’t enough time by law to change things.Raiford Trask, chairman of the board’sspecial committee on military affairs, saidhe’s optimistic the legislature will approvethe change outlined in the resolution.“The federal government is going to atsome point pass a bill that mandates that,so I think it’s important for us to determinehow our bills read (before that happens),he said.Still, the approximately 5,000 UNC-system student veterans using federal benefits will have to wait until the General Assembly convenes in May for a final deci-sion.System President Tom Ross said in a news conference following the meeting last week that he hopes the General Assembly  will be open to working with the systemon veterans’ tuition during the legislature’s

 A security oversight left bathroom flex passlocks disabled and allowed a man to enter a wom-en’s bathroom Friday at Connor Residence Hall,housing officials said.UNC junior Laura Carroll said she was shower-ing at approximately 3 a.m. when she noticed thata man had entered the bathroom and was watch-ing her through a gap in the shower curtain. Shechased the man out of the bathroom, found theresident adviser and called the police.Director of Housing and Residential EducationLarry Hicks said the bathroom flex pass locks atConnor were deactivated for a group that stayedin the residence hall during the summer and had been disabled since.“They were supposed to be re-engaged, and they  were not,” he said. “It just fell under the radar.Connor is one of a handful of residence halls thatrequires a flex pass to enter not just the building, buta hall bathroom as well. While the flex pass locks onthe exterior doors of the building are working, the bathroom door locks were not operational until 5p.m. Friday, at the insistence of the RAs and policeofficers who initially responded to the incident.“This was just a safety measure that was already in place that wasn’t being used,” Carroll said.Hicks said there are no rules regarding bath-room flex pass locks — but he is working to stan-dardize their use.Housing officials said resident resistance is anongoing challenge to the installation of the locks.Rick Bradley, associate director of housing and resi-dential education, said many students would rath-er go without them. He said students find ways toget around the locks, such as breaking them.“For years, it’s been an ongoing battle to make res-idents aware that they are there for safety,” he said. All requests regarding the activation or dis-abling of flex pass locks are dealt with by the hous-ing support lock shop.“The police officers really emphasized that thatneeded to happen,” Carroll said.This isn’t the first time Carroll has experiencedsafety concerns at Connor Hall. She said the firstfloor sees a lot of outside visitors, some who walk through locked doors by following residents. As a three-time survivor of sexual assault, Carrollsaid she feels relieved to know that the bathroomsare more secure with the reactivated flex passes.“It’s easy to tailgate into a building, you know,people naturally want to hold the door open forthe person behind them,” Carroll said. “It’s hard totailgate into a bathroom.

 As he sat in the pressroom atCarmichael Arena, he was asked torecall when he found out that Sylvia Hatchell, his co-worker of 28 years,had been diagnosed with leukemia.He tried his best to still his emo-tions, but the North Carolina wom-en’s basketball associate head coachcouldn’t help but get choked up. Andrew Calder had been thrustinto directing the team in Hatchell’sstead, but despite the difficulty thatposed, he was focused on his coach.“I got a call from coach Hatchellon Friday night and met with her onSaturday,” he said. “And she told methe situation, that she’s very confidentin us, and hopefully she’ll be back very soon to coach this basketball team.”Monday, 16 days before the team’sfirst game, UNC was thrown a curve- ball when Hatchell’s diagnosis wasreleased and it was announced thatshe would be taking a leave. ThoughHatchell will not be able to take herusual role, Calder said the 61-year-oldcoach is still very involved in the team.“She will be missed,” he said.“However, each year, she evalu-ates the talent that she has comingin and, with her philosophy, putstogether a master game plan for that year.

game plan. When she returns we will be on schedule.Calder also said Hatchell receivesa copy of each practice and evaluatesit with him, and she still dictateshow practice is scheduled.But a plan was not the only thingHatchell had prepared. She also took a special interest in making sure herassistants could be head coaches later.“I will remain very much involved with my team and day-to-day opera-tions here at UNC and expect toreturn to my sideline responsibilitiesas soon as possible,” Hatchell said in a statement Monday. “My veteran staff and team will be well-prepared andmeet any challenges until my return.”Calder said that preparation has been something Hatchell has alwaysfelt a responsibility to do — andCalder should know.In 1986, when Hatchell was namedhead coach of UNC, she immediately named him her assistant coach.Calder was promoted to associatehead coach in 2008, and even thoughhe has 28 years of tutelage from a Hallof Fame coach under his belt, he saidhe has never had any inkling to pur-sue a head coaching job elsewhere.“I have not looked to go any- where,” he said. “I have a very closerelationship with coach Hatchelland I love this University, this ath-letic department, everyone associat-ed with this University and I’m very comfortable in my position.”Those 28 years have unavoidably made the two coaches very similar,Calder said. That similarity has reas-sured him in his team’s perseverance.“We both have the same philosophy in how the game should be played,”he said. “I think that’s the main thing. We’re going to continue to play thegame the way she wants the game to be played … I’ve been with her a longtime … and I’ve learned a lot from her,a lot from her, and I’ll just implementthat to (the players) in her place.”

NC State Fair gets fresh crop of new menu items
By John Howell, Jr.
Senior Writer
UNC junior Elizabeth Graham saidthere’s more to the North Carolina StateFair than just deep-fried red velvet Oreosand Krispy Kreme sloppy Joes — and sheought to know.This year’s fair opens Thursday and runsuntil Oct. 27 in Raleigh and will featurenew rides and foods that range from deep-fried candy to flavored funnel cake, along with the annual competitions.Graham has taken her hobby of cake dec-orating to the next level by entering a wed-ding cake into the amateur cake category.“I thought it would be a good place toget professional feedback on what I love todo,” she said. And she’s not the only one takingadvantage of the state fair’s uniqueopportunities.Denise Walker, competitive exhibits direc-tor for the state fair, said general entries haveincreased by 44 percent from last year.“We’ve got the largest increase in theflower and garden department, followed by the 4-H and beer departments,” she said.Graham said hobbies like canning orquilt-making don’t usually get much rec-ognition, but the fair provides the opportu-nity for people to shine.“I think it’s a really important place thatshowcases our state’s talents and abilities,”she said. Wesley Wyatt, manager of the state fair,said he attributes the increased participa-tion to outreach efforts on social media.“People realize it’s a way to show off  what they’ve done,” Wyatt said.N.C. Agriculture Commissioner SteveTroxler said he’s proud of the competitionsand exhibits, both new and traditional, atthis year’s fair.“The fair is an educational experience, but it’s also about fun,” he saidBrian Long, state fair spokesman, saidthis year, two new rides will be unveiled.The first is a children’s ride dubbed “TheGold Rush Express,” and the second iscalled “The Rampage” — a ride reservedfor an older crowd and placed in the mostthrilling ride category.Fresh faces on the food menu includepink lemonade funnel cake and deep-friedred velvet Oreos, Sugar Daddy candy andCow Tales — and one of the vendors will be offering something with a differentSouthern feel, Long said.“The Cajun Grill will be adding grilledfrog legs to its menu this year,” he said.Competition participant Graham said because of her friends’ encouragement andthe online advertising of her fair entry, shehas already had three orders placed for wedding cakes.“Something is happening. I’m not sure what it will amount to,” she said.Graham said in the future, she wouldenjoy turning her hobby into a business by owning a bakery or working for someonethat does — but she hasn’t committed totaking it on full time just yet.“Good results would be very welcomeand exciting, but at this point I’m content with what I’ve done,” she said.
