Tuesday’s election resultsremain in limbo as mistakes by the Board of Elections, technology glitches and confusion regardingthe Student Code have called intoquestion the validity of the vote.Board of Elections ChairmanPete Gillooly said he currently hasno plans to invalidate the election.But according to the laws of stu-dent government, any student inany election could sue the Boardof Elections in Student SupremeCourt, on the grounds that the validity of his or her candidacy could have been compromised.
Fee efeedum
Gillooly announced Tuesdanight that all three fee referen-dums had been approved by thestudent body.But he said he misread the elec-tion results and the $6 student orga-nization fee did not actually pass. It was defeated by 2,037 votes.“I f---ed up,” he said. “Iannounced it in the wrong order. It

Duke drops UNC to last in the ACCUNC inconsistent at small forward
By DaviD rEynOlDs
sPorts editor
Before Wednesday night, NorthCarolina’s season looked a lot likeearly reports of forward Travis Wear’s injured ankle. With 10 losses, its NCAA Tournament chances were signifi-cantly hobbled. The pressure that was put on it with each passingloss made failure a tender subject. And UNC’s season-long struggle with perimeter defense was a hugecause for concern.But the season was still unbro-ken.It took Duke’s Jon Scheyer all 40minutes in the Blue Devils’ 64-54 win against the Tar Heels (13-11,2-7 ACC), but he finished the job.“No moral victories,” UNC coachRoy Williams said. “For 30 min-utes, I thought we had the intensity that we needed and should’ve hadthe whole season, but after that it was their work on the offensive backboards. They seemed morehungry to get there.Scheyer overcame a horrendousearly shooting performance to putthe game away late.Shortly after junior Will Gravesdrained a three-pointer to pullUNC within one at 49-48 with 6:04remaining, the Blue Devils couldn’timmediately find an open look onthe other end, and the Smith Centercrowd roared with excitement.UNC cut off Scheyer’s pass-ing lanes, and a barrage of blocksin the lane earlier in the gamedeterred him from driving towardthe basket.But as the shot clock dipped below 10 seconds, Scheyer finally made a decision. The point guardcalmly picked up his dribble andreleased a high arcing shot with ahand in his face.One swish later, the Blue Devils(20-4, 8-2) were back in control by four points. And with four moreScheyer points down the stretch,the Tar Heels did not get withinthree the rest of the game.Scheyer finished with a game-high 24 points.“That was a big swing because we were all into it, and he hits thatthree, and we’re back to where westarted,” forward John Hensonsaid. “That really killed us.”The Blue Devils did it againstthe Tar Heels best defensive effortof the season.Duke was bothered by the longarms of North Carolina’s big menall night, shooting a horrendous13-51 from inside the arc, includ-

Inconsistency has been a plagueupon North Carolina this season.The 64-54 loss to Duke was nodifferent, whether you look at the whole roster or just at one spot. Against the Blue Devils, the TarHeels received good 3-point shoot-ing and solid defensive play fromtheir small forward — but just notat the same time, and not from thesame player. Will Graves provided the scor-ing boost the Tar Heels needed.He hit a pair of 3-pointers early to keep the game close and led theteam in scoring with 13 points.John Henson mostly stuck to what he does best: help defensenear the rim. He finished with four blocks in just 20 minutes and forcedseveral turnovers in the paint.But neither was able to contrib-ute on the opposite end. Hensonshot just 2-for-8 from the floor,and Graves found himself unableto keep position on defense.“The big men were going to block shots, and so that leavestheir man open,” Graves said.“And I did a poor job of get-ting down to box out, and to helpthem out when my man was onthe outside.”

Despite another loss Wednesday night, flocks of students displayedtheir UNC spirit on Franklin Streetafter the game. While crossing Columbia Street,groups of students decked outin their Tar Heel best and carry-ing Carolina blue balloons joinedtogether in a heartfelt rendition of “Hark the Sound.” As students sang, town trucksfilled with trash cans combed thestreets in search of possible danger.Even with UNC’s less-than-stellar men’s basketball record,the town of Chapel Hill preparedto battle possible bonfire frenzies.Chapel Hill Fire Chief DanJones said the fire departmentplans for big events like Dukegames regardless of UNC’s teamstatus.“It’s sports, and you don’t know what the outcome might be,” hesaid.In collaboration with the ChapelHill police department, Jones saidthe fire department planned tohave staff and equipment out onFranklin Street after the game.“Particularly with the wind

She has maintainedthat bonfires pose a safety issue.Jones, who planned to attend Wednesday’s game and go toFranklin Street after, said she stilldoesn’t know whether students will like her plan.“We’ll just have to wait andsee,” she said.But students downtown afterthe game said they were disap-pointed by the lack of bonfires.“We would not have com-plained about the cold if wehad bonfires,” freshman SingerCrawford said.Still, students seemed toshare one thing in common —a hatred for Duke.“I still say go to hell, Duke,”freshman Alex Munden said.

f you have an extra $1.4 million lying around, consider investing in a formerCanadian NATO satellite spy station in Nova Scotia.The four-acre facility, perched in a mountain forest, was built in 1983 and was operational until 2006. The current owner bought the site from thedefense department after its closure, sales agent George Kimber said.The 10,000-square-foot building includes four bedrooms, a kitchen, a laundry room, a workshop and your very own sterile biotech laboratory. The double-gatedsecurity fence and guardhouse ensure that you don’t have to worry about security. And if you’re trying to keep up with the Joneses, the large golf ball-shaped satellitecover might just do it.

CorreCTioNs
Due to a reporting error,Tuesday’s pg. 3 brief headline“Director of Sierra Club’s coalcampaign to visit campus today,”incorrectly stated that the visit was Tuesday. The event was Wednesday.Due to a reporting error, Wednesday’s pg. 6 story, “All threereferendums pass,” was incor-rect. Although Board of ElectionsChairman Pete Gillooly statedTuesday that all three passed,the $6 student organizations feeincrease did not pass.Due to a reporting error, Wednesday’s pg. 6 story, “Deane,Tyler tapped to lead senior class,”incorrectly stated that the seniorclass officers help select the classgift. Seniors actually can donate toany part of the University as part of the senior campaign.The Daily Tar Heel apologizesfor the errors.

By taking a moment to look back at the history of UNC’s coaluse, the newly created Energy TaskForce is prepared to reshape theUniversity’s approach to energy by the end of the year.The Energy Task Force,announced at the end of January during a Board of Trustees meet-ing, aims to evaluate the state of campus sustainability, particularly the coal-burning cogenerationplant on Cameron Avenue.Tim Toben, chairman of the N.C.Energy Policy Council, set a fast,focused and ambitious pace for thegroup of administrators, studentsand community members duringits inaugural meeting Wednesday in Steele Building.Toben credited Laura Stevensand other members of the SierraClub for relentlessly shining a lighton issues of sustainability.“The implications of this are someof the most important issues of ourtime,” Chancellor Holden Thorp saidduring the first half of the meeting.He added that he sees the task forceas an opportunity to show the workUNC has done so far and open up toadjustments in areas where improve-ments can still be made.Toben said he hoped the taskforce would have “actionable rec-ommendations” by the end of the year, and would meet for the nextsix to nine months. Members aimto focus on certain topics: technol-ogy, price, policy and alternatives.“We’re not going to become

 A judge is holding two formerJohn Edwards aides in contempt of court even after they surrenderedmany of the items the court askedfor, including a sex tape of Edwardsand his campaign videographer.The videographer, Rielle Hunter,had asked courts to get the items back from former aides Andrewand Cheri Young, but the Youngshave not turned them all in yet.They submitted items from alock box in Atlanta which the courthad ordered, but Rielle Hunter’sdefense said they think there stillmight be more evidence the Youngsare not submitting. After more than three hoursof hearing the case in court Wednesday, Judge Abraham PennJones decided that the Youngs couldnot be releasedfrom contemptof court until all was settled.One of the Youngs’ attorneys,David Geneson,could not makethe hearing because he wasstuck in snowin Washington,D.C.Genesondelivered theEdwards “personal tape” to theFBI. Because he was not able to be questioned during the hear-ing, Jones decided the whole story hadn’t yet been told.“We did the best we could to geteverything we could,” Andrew Youngsaid, wearing a Carolina blue tie.Both Youngs testified under oaththat they did not have any moreof Hunter’s property without herconsent in their possession, nor dothey know of anyone who does.Hunter’s attorneys pointed outseveral inconsistencies in Young’sstatements and original affidavits, which led them to argue that theremight be more materials Young isnot submitting.“They are taking back thingsthey said Friday,” Hunter’s attor-ney Alan Duncan said. “If thereare other tapes made, there are stillsome questions to be asked.” A video tape labeled “Special” was recovered from the Atlantalock box.Other tapes submitted tothe court included ones labeled“Missing Webisodes” and “Rielle visits UNC Poverty Center. A USB drive found in a boxcontaining photographs was alsosubmitted. A DVD containing only audiofiles was recovered from the box but not submitted to the courtunder attorney-client privilege.Robert Trenkle, who also repre-sented the Youngs, argued that the Youngs went above and beyondsubmitting all materials the courtrequired. Rielle’s attorneys wishedto cross examine the Youngs, butTrenkle argued that questions

Every Tuesday night, rain or calm, agroup of women gather at the UNC ROTCarmory building to clap, stomp and movein unison at the command of their director,Lindsey Jefferies.“Alright ladies, let’s do it again!”They are members of the stepping squad born2step, the University’s only official, inde-pendent squad. UNC also has several stepteams associated with the Greek system.Kiva Moore, a freshman communicationstudies major and member of born2step, saidstepping could be called dance, but there’sgreater freedom to it than other dance types.“You can use music, but you don’t haveto,” Moore said. “We use our hands and feetas the music and rhythm.”Jefferies founded born2step in October2009 when she couldn’t find an outlet forstepping outside of the Greek system.“I would have done it through a soror-ity, but they’re not stepping all the time. I would’ve been mad,” she said.Jefferies, a sophomore who has been step-ping since she was five, credits her motheras her inspiration.“My mom had a community group, and I would step here and there, in my church andhigh school,” she said.The summer after her first year at UNC,she undertook the project of forming an offi-cially recognized step squad. An older group,called breaknpoint, had lost recognition.Brittany Nichols, secretary of the LambdaPsi chapter of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority,Inc., said stepping in the Greek system is notonly fun, but a source of pride.“The Greek aspect changes it. That’s where it originated,” Nichols said.Nichols also said the tradition of step insororities and fraternities within the histori-cally black National Pan-Hellenic Councilallows them to have signature moves withintheir organizations.Moves are passed on from class to class, becoming traditional steps.The Lambda Psi chapter has passed downthe tradition of using canes in their routines,and they are the only sorority to do so.Born2step also has signature steps thatJefferies developed so that the group couldlearn something together. After that, she want-ed the choreography to be group-oriented, with everyone contributing to the routine.“We’re always in the brainstorming stage,like, ‘What should we do now, patty cake?’”Jefferies said.Moore joined the group with no experi-ence, but was eager to learn.“I love it. We get together and just havea good time thinking about what will lookcool,” Moore said.Born2step now has a membership of 10 women, and anyone is welcome to join, regard-less of experience. There are only women inthe group currently, but it is open to all.Jefferies says her main goal is to cre-ate a low-stress environment, but that themission of the group is to entertain otherspurely through step. While the Greek steppers have otheractivities within their organizations asidefrom purely stepping, Nichols says it’s animportant part of their community.“You bond within the sorority. It’s our tra-dition and part of our history.”

UNC-system President ErskineBowles is continuing to promote alower tuition increase for systemschools than the increase proposed by the N.C. General Assembly.Bowles’ recommendations matchthe ones created by individual cam-puses in the last few months. All areless than the tuition increase man-dated by the N.C. General Assembly at the close of its 2009 session. At its monthly meeting today, the budget and finance committee of theUNC-system Board of Governors isexpected to authorize Bowles’ rec-ommendations.The legislature established tuitionincreases in August 2009 for theUNC system that are the lesser of $200 or 8 percent of the 2009-10amount.But Bowles has expressed hopethat the legislature will replace itsmandated increase with the alterna-tive increases recommended by him,assuming they are approved by theBoard of Governors.Bowles also is asking the legisla-ture to return tuition revenue to thecampuses.The average school’s tuitionincrease based on the legislativemandate is 7.2 percent, or $180. Theaverage increase proposal from UNCcampuses is 5.2 percent, or $131.If the committee approves thetuition increases, it will go to thefull board Friday for a vote and thenon to the legislature.
