The Daily Tar Heel
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.
