Senior Elaina Giolando will spend a thirdThanksgiving away from home.Home is Buffalo, NY.“It doesn’t make sense to spend $600 on planetickets when Christmas break is just a few weeksaway,” she said.Giolando, who will use the break to write hersenior thesis, is one of many out-of-state and inter-national students who will remain in Chapel Hilldue to financial constraints.UNC Assistant Director of Housing Rick Bradley said about 20 students have requested housing overthe break and many more have made plans to stay elsewhere. Although the Out-of-State Student Associationprovides airport shuttles over Thanksgiving break,many international and out-of-state students findthe price of traveling home for five days to be toomuch, said Ryan Morgan, who was president of theassociation for the 2009-2010 school year.“These past two years, it seems like more peoplecan’t go home, especially with how bad the economy has been,” said Morgan, who was relocated to Odum Village during Thanksgiving break his sophomore year. All residence halls will close to students at 10 a.m. Wednesday and re-open Sunday at 9 a.m. Students will not be allowed to enter the dorms during thesetimes.“Residence halls don’t stay open because there areso few students who stay behind,” Bradley said. “Wecan’t keep them open because of safety reasons.Students who choose to remain on campus will

It’s a late night on Asgard Farm.In the dark, turkeys roost in the fields and Allison Aday, owner of the multi-species sustainable farmin Gibsonville, enters the pasture.“We generally go out in the evening,” Aday said.“They don’t run away because it’s too dark to seeanything.”Each turkey is snatched from the fields and placedin cages overnight, fasted off of food. At the farm’s processing station the next day, theturkeys are taken out one by one and placed in arestraint cone — still covered so they won’t panic.“We cut their turkey throats,” Aday said. “It’s themost humane way to do it. They are unconscious within seconds. I don’t want their last day to be hor-rible and stressful.The turkeys, each a pure heritage breed, are thenplucked and packaged, ready to be picked up by cus-tomers and placed on a Thanksgiving Day table.“Being a small farm, I generally do about 50 tur-keys a year,” Aday said. “I take orders in May and we’re usually sold out by June.The turkey has become the most popularThanksgiving staple, but John Pike, director of operations at Goldsboro Milling Company, said the business is not just a once-a-year ordeal.“Turkey is a year-round business,” Pike said.“They’re not just being raised as whole birds (forthe holidays), but for cut-up for deli meats too.” Virnece Beaman, former owner of Circle B Turkey Farm in Dudley, said turkey farmers work from morn-ing to night around the year to raise the holiday dish.“It’s not really any different during Thanksgivingor Christmas,” said Beaman, who co-owned the farm with her husband for 22 years before selling it inDecember 2009.“A turkey farmer has to go down (to the houses)early every morning to make sure everything isprivate and public parking spaces.Eighteen units of affordable hous-ing dedicated to the Community Home Trust are also included in thedevelopment’s number of units.The approved construction planallows for closing a section of ChurchStreet for about 12 to 15 months, ashorter period of time than the origi-

Developers of 140 West Franklinreceived an early Christmas pres-ent when the town issued a long-awaited zoning permit, but holi-day shoppers could feel a pinch inparking as a result.Ram Development Company cleared the last hurdle standing between it and the start of construc-tion on 140 West on Friday whenthey received a zoning compliancepermit from the Town of ChapelHill after weeks of delays.Closure of a section of town-owned Parking Lot 5, where thedevelopment will be located, isset to take effect Dec. 15, saidtown engineer Jay Gibson. Thelot is located at the intersection of Franklin and Church streets.Full closure of the lot will takeplace on Jan. 3, around the sametime construction will begin on thenew development.“One of the things we’ve been working very hard on is thatphased-approach closing to assurethere would still be some parkingavailable during the holiday sea-son,” Gibson said.The 103 hourly and leased park-ing spaces that will be lost with thelot’s closure will be redistributedthroughout the town so no parkingis lost during construction, thoughsome of the new spots are fartheraway from the heart of downtown.“We’re also in the process of final-izing some signage that will go up within the next week or so,” Gibsonsaid. The signs will show shoppers, visitors and students where theparking has been relocated.The 140 West development com- bines public, commercial and livingspaces with the goal of rechargingthe downtown atmosphere.The structure will stand eightstories tall at its highest point andcontain 140 units of upscale con-dominiums, 26,000 square feet of ground-level retail space and 337

County EMS low on funds

 An aging population paired withlimited personnel and equipmenthave contributed to the time ittakes the county to respond to 911calls, leaving officials concernedabout what the loss of a potentialrevenue stream could mean foralready strained resources.Orange County Emergency Services officials discovered in thespring that their average responsetime was 17 minutes — five min-utes longer than their goal, saidBernadette Pelissier, vice-chairwom-an of the Boards of Commissioners.Pelissier said this high responsetime has made EMS a priority forcounty commissioners.“Even last year in a very tight budget, when we actually decreasedour budget, we did give additionalfunds to emergency management because of the situation with theresponse time,” she said.Orange County Emergency Services would have receivedmore than $170,000 annually if the county’s quarter-cent sales taxhad passed on Nov. 2. — money that Emergency Services DirectorFrank Montes de Oca said wouldhave gone to increased training,staff and equipment.Montes de Oca said his depart-ment was counting on the fund-ing from the tax to help lower theresponse time to 12 minutes.“But we understand that the vot-ers spoke, and we respect that, and we’ll deal with it,” he said.Pelissier said the stress on EMSresources is largely a result of thecounty’s aging population.“You have to look at what is yourpopulation base,” she said. “It’s not just the number of the people. It’sthe needs of people.“If you had a community that was all 25-year-olds you’d havemuch a smaller need.”Montes de Oca said EMS wouldlike to have more public outreachprograms to inform the elderly andother at-risk populations about behaviors that could decrease thenumber of times they call 911, liketaking their medications regularly or following doctors’ instructions.“But that takes money for bro-chures and for personnel to get outthere,” Montes de Oca said. And although the number of calls to emergency services hasincreased in the past five years, thedepartment’s ambulances and per-sonnel have not, said South OrangeRescue Squad Chief MatthewMauzy.The rescue squad, which ismanned by an all-volunteer staff,provides “surge coverage” when allof the county’s ambulances are tiedup in addition to supplying ambu-lances and EMTs to the area threenights a week, Mauzy said.“Our intent is to add moreresources onto the road, and it iscertainly more economical to have volunteers to do it,” Mauzy said.But, he said, there is still notenough funding or staff at thecounty level for the department to work as efficiently as it could.Montes de Oca said the depart-ment hopes to add 35 to 40 posi-tions to help ease the increas-ing demand, but these additionsdepend on future funding.“We’re still working internally among our staff to determine bud-get needs,” he said. “When we getinto the budget season, we’ll pre-pare some documents for (commis-sioners).”

North Carolina’s men’s basket- ball team left for the Puerto RicoTip-Off tournament last weekplaying with a confidence thatresembled past teams coached by Roy Williams.UNC had beaten its two oppo-nents by an average of 29 points,and the Tar Heels were one of thetop teams in the tournament.But following two upset losses toMinnesota and Vanderbilt, the No.25 Tar Heels returned from PuertoRico more concerned. It was ashock to the system, but Williamsspoke calmly about his team’s cur-rent problems.“We’ve all got to be concernedthat we play better, have more dis-cipline about what we’re trying todo, have more intensity,” he said. “Imean we’re concerned, there’s noquestion.”But for that to happen, UNC(2-2) must adjust a number of things.For starters, Harrison Barnes, who Williams said was unfairly given a preseason All-Americatitle, must play better. In the lasttwo games — both losses — thefreshman has gone 4-for-24 fromthe field.But Williams didn’t attributehis slow start to a desire to do toomuch on his own.“I get the sense he’s not doingenough,” he said. “Sometimes youhave to lose yourself into the game. You can’t be trying to be perfect. Youcan’t be concerned about what youas an individual are accomplishing. And I think we’ve got a whole teamfull of that scenario right now…. What everybody’s got to focus onis, ‘We’ve got to do this.’” Williams said UNC spent thefirst three weeks of practice playingagainst the junior varsity basketballteam in order to prevent potentialinjuries to starters.Because of that, he said the teamhad to adjust to increased competi-tion, but that he will still take thetradeoff to not risk an early injury.North Carolina’s 38 turnovers inthe past two games, which Williamscredited in part to an overall lackof experience, are certainly an areaUNC would like to improve.“Nobody likes to admit it, butguys, we are an unbelievably youngteam,” Williams said. “Young teamsare going to make mistakes … Ican’t coach them to pass and catch.If they can’t pass and catch by thetime they get here, we’ve got majorproblems.”Five of UNC’s six leading scorersare freshmen or sophomores, as aresix of the 10 players averaging morethan 10 minutes a game.But at some point, that too willno longer be a fallback for UNC.“I’m gonna put more pressureon them, by-god you’ve got to play  better,” Williams said. “You’ve gotto play like you did in the first tenminutes of the second half lastnight. You know this is not sev-enth-grade little-league bitty-ball. You knew what it was going to be when you got here.

It was a normal day in journalismprofessor Chris Roush’s classroom.The students filed into room21 of Carroll Hall. Before takingtheir seats, they gathered aroundthe professor they refer to casually as “Chris” to catch up and discusstheir stories.But for the past few days,one thing has been different.Since Thursday, “Chris” has also been known to them as the N.C.Professor of the Year.The selection made Roush thefirst UNC professor to win theaward since 1998, when commu-nication studies professor Julia Wood received the honor fromthe Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching.“I get a lot of satisfaction out of seeing students improve,” Roushsaid. “Although I loved workingas a reporter, there is much morepositive feedback in teaching.“My hope is that students willattain the skills to get a good job. I want to teach them the things thatI didn’t learn when I was first start-ing out.”Students said they find the levelof respect Roush commands in hisclasses demanding. But they saidthe courses are more than worththe effort.“I really enjoy how the classis hands-on and practical,” said Andrew Westney, a student inRoush’s reporting and writingnews course. “Roush really prideshimself on being so available andaccessible.”Since his arrival in 2002, Roushhas wasted no time establishinghimself as one of the most knowl-edgeable and sought-after profes-sors, particularly in business jour-nalism.“Roush has made such a dif-ference in the journalism school,” journalism professor RhondaGibson said. “He’s really put busi-ness journalism on the map forCarolina.”Before teaching, Roush workedas a writer and correspondent formany newspapers, including the St.Petersburg Times, BusinessWeek,the Atlanta Journal-Constitutionand Bloomberg.He has also authored four booksand co-authored three others inaddition to being the Walter E.Hussman Sr. Distinguished Scholarin business journalism and thefounding director of the CarolinaBusiness News Initiative.Those duties have broughtRoush a variety of awards, includ-ing the Scripps Howard FoundationNational Journalism Teacher of the Year award in 2009.But his impact on the schoolgoes beyond his resume, studentssaid.“Professor Roush helped mefind a career path that was rightfor me,” said Sarah Rabil, a 2007UNC graduate who works as amedia reporter for Bloomberg, acompany that provides businessnews and information.“I loved journalism, but I wasalso good with numbers, and so hehelped find avenue for finding a jobthat incorporated both of these.Notes from Roush’s class are theonly ones former student ChristinaRexrode has kept since graduatingin 2005 and taking a job at theCharlotte Observer.“You can tell at the end of asemester when a professor is ready for the class to be over,” she said.“You can also tell when a professorcares about his students. Roush isone of the latter.”But students said that Roushis an especially valuable resourceonce the classes come to an endand the time comes to search fora job in the struggling journalismmarket.Roush is well-known for hisconnections in the field of busi-ness journalism and his ability toput them to work.“He introduced me to a ton of people,” Rexrode said. “That’s really  been beneficial to my career now,especially because I cover media.”

It was hard not to stare: The woman’s breasts were so large she made Barbie lookdownright small-busted.The men on the ice hockey team whopainted her on the side of a cube in the Pitknew she’d draw attention.That was sort of the point, they say. Fewknow about their team, and fewer still know of the tournament that honors their late coach.In retrospect, they realize the painted woman, and the invitation below her (“Come watch us score”) was bound to attract all the wrong kinds of attention.“We figured we’d get an interesting reac-tion,” said senior John Thompson, one of the team’s vice presidents. “But we definitely  weren’t trying to offend anyone.”“Disgusted” was how senior RobynLevine described feeling after walking homeand seeing the cube Wednesday night.For Levine, the ice hockey team’s cuberepresented “part of a larger problem” oncollege campuses where women’s bodies areobjectified and such behavior is tolerated.“It wasn’t particularly surprising,” she said.“It was just a really obvious manifestation.”Later that night, Levine and members of Feminist Students United talked about howto respond. Their goal was to point out why the cube had offended them, and why they saw it as part of a larger problem.“Just saying ‘that’s sexist’ with no othercontext wouldn’t have been the most con-structive,” Levine said.Thursday, the group took to the cubes,painting the adjoining side. With giantorange arrows, they directed attention to“sexism around the corner” and declaredthat “this is what rape culture looks like.”Kyle Salvadore learned from a friend whatthe feminist group was painting. Salvadore,a junior and an ice hockey team vice presi-dent, rushed to the Pit to see it for himself. Within minutes, he painted over the busty  woman and sent an e-mail apologizing toleaders of Feminist Students United.“We just want to make sure that we apolo-gized and corrected the wrong,” Salvadoresaid. “We also wanted to make clear that ourintentions were not to support rape culture. Inno way do we support or condone that at all.”Since Thursday, the two groups’ lead-ers have been in talks with one another.Ice hockey team members plan to attend aFeminist Students United meeting and arelooking into One Act, a one-hour class onpreventing interpersonal violence.The ice hockey team realizes now howoffensive the cube was, Salvadore said.“We really did not know what rape cul-ture exactly was before,” he said.Incidents like this happen all the time, but talking about it publicly helps preventit in the future, Levine said.“It did start a larger conversation.”
