Serving UNC students and the University community since 1893

 Nothing will ever be the same.

On Sept. 12, 2001, theUniversity invited everyone togather in Polk Place so nobody  would have to mourn alone.The campus vigil was aresponse to a national catastro-phe, the magnitude of whichhasn’t been seen since thatSeptember day.But just six-and-a-half yearslater, campus leaders decidedthey had to do it again.The murder of Eve Carson inthe spring of 2008 brought thecommunity together in frontof South Building on anothersunny day, and traumatized theUniversity much like Sept. 11 did.“Those were the two most poi-gnant and tragic moments in my time in the chancellor’s office,”said James Moeser, UNC’s chan-cellor from 2000 to 2008.“In both cases, the safety of this cocoon that we live in was breached — one on a nationalscale, one on a very local scale.” And while most of those whoknew Carson have left UNC, theeffects of the Sept. 11 attacks lin-ger still today.Through an increased inter-national presence, a renewedcommitment to free expressionand, more than anything else, aloss of innocence that mirroredthe national mood — UNC has become a very different placethan it was in 2001.“(Sept. 11) shattered America’s view of itself as a kind of sanctu-ary from the kind of violence thathappened elsewhere,” Moesersaid.For Doug Dibbert, then thedirector of alumni affairs, thethought of Sept. 11 amounts to“imagining that we could have3,000 Eve Carsons taken in onemoment.”

It seemed like everyone was watching television.“We all just sat and watchedthe TV,” said Becca McQueen, asenior at the time. “You couldn’tget enough information, I think,at that point.”In nearly every building oncampus, students and faculty gathered around TVs.Moeser was in a meeting withhigh-level administrators in SouthBuilding when he heard the news.They all walked to Carroll Hall in

Senior Alana Austin measuresher childhood in two parts — before Sept. 11 and after.Before 2001, the Queens, N.Y.,native said Sept. 11 was simply her father’s birthday, a day of celebration and cherishing time with her family.But Austin said those memo-ries were rapidly replaced by looping images of planes strikingthe towers and smoke rising onthe distant skyline.“It shattered my innocenceand my view of the world. At thetime, I knew of certain crimes but I didn’t know what it was liketo experience something on thisscale,” she said.Throughout New York City,children like Austin attempted toassociate concepts of new wordslike “terrorism” and “al-Qaida” with the images of destruction. As the 10th anniversary of theSept. 11 attacks approaches, stu-dents at UNC try to sift throughtheir memories of that day.Sophomore Ashley Robinsonsaid despite the decade that’spassed, she remembers Sept. 11 with startling clarity.Today, she recalls minutedetails: the walk from her LongIsland home to her elementary school — from the warmth of theSeptember sun, to munching onsugary Italian doughnuts fromthe local bakery.“It’s crazy to think that it’s 10 years later and I can rememberthat so vividly in my mind,” shesaid.But hours into the start of aroutine school day, Robinsonsaid students could feel a pal-pable shift in the mood from theteachers.“You could tell the feeling fromthe teachers had changed — they didn’t want to tell us at school what was going on,” she said.“But the thing is, from every school you can see across the bay to the New York skyline.” And it was from a classroom window in Long Island thatRobinson watched as the secondplane hit the tower.Though she could barely dis-tinguish the glittering skyscraperfrom the plumes of smoke thatobscured the Manhattan skyline,Robinson said she couldn’t tearherself away. Across the island, 10-year-oldMoe Dabbagh, now a junior, was

In the past, each sorority hashad to divide its bids between allpotential members.

The UNC system eliminatedabout 3,000 filled positions as aresult of this year’s budget cuts,according to a report presented tothe Board of Governors Thursday. About 490 filled full-timeuniversity employees and about2,500 filled part-time employees were cut as a result of the $414million in budget cuts issued by the N.C. General Assembly In order to cope with the15.6 percent budget reduction,universities had to cut into vitalresources including counselingservices, course offerings andteaching positions.Many administrators say they are worried the budget cuts willhurt student and faculty reten-tion.“Despite the efforts we havetaken to protect the academiccore, students will be signifi-cantly impacted by the cuts,” saidUNC-Greensboro ChancellorLinda Brady. “I think it will be very difficult for some of our stu-dents to graduate on time.”UNC-G has had to eliminate907 course sections due to bud-get cuts, Brady said.To help students graduate within four years, Brady said theschool has adopted several newpolicies to offset losses.Many deans at the school haveadopted a temporary substitutionpolicy.This policy allows studentsto replace an unavailable coursethat they need in order to gradu-ate with another class, she said.Students are also limited to 15credit hours per semester.“We found that most students would drop 3 or 6 hours afterthe first couple weeks of classes,”Brady said.“We actually believe this willhelp with our graduation rateslong term.Other campuses across thestate are familiar with UNC-G’sdwindling resources.The 15.6 percent budgetreduction, translates to a cut of $9 million for UNC-Pembroke,said Chancellor Kyle Carter.The school had 6,944 fresh-men enroll last fall. This year thefreshmen class has been cut by 733, which leaves an anticipatedtuition shortfall of about $2.5million, Carter said.The average dollar impact oneach student at UNC-P was about$1,400 in reduction, he said.Student retention is not theonly worry of many administra-tors.Suzanne Ortega, executive vice president for academicaffairs for the UNC system, toldmembers of the personnel andtenured committee that many universities are struggling toretain faculty members as well.“We are losing an enormoustalent pool,” Ortega said. About 110 external offers weremade to faculty members atUNC-CH during the 2010-2011 year. The previous year, 87 offers were made to faculty members, but the University was able tomake 61 counter offers.“I know of no state that hastotally shut down faculty hiring,”Ortega said.“This is a state that is moreripe for the picking than it hasever been.”Many administrators saidfinding solutions to the harsh budget cuts and lack of resourcescall for innovative measures.“The easiest thing we can dois raise tuition, but I think weneed to take the blinders off and start looking at what otherinstitutions are doing acrossthe country,” said David Young,chairman of the budget andfinance committee.“Lets start thinking innova-tively about how we fund ouruniversity and how we can helpour students graduate.N.C.

every university would have toadapt to the cuts.“When I spoke to our faculty and staff this fall, I got the term,‘the new norm,’” he said.“The way we used to do busi-ness, those things are gone.”

The U.S. government musttake bolder steps to reduce thenational debt, former UNC-system President ErskineBowles said Thursday in aspeech at the University.Bowles spoke at GerrardHall about the nation’s budgetdeficit and government spend-ing as part of the Thomas Willis Lambeth DistinguishedLectureship in Public Policy.In 2010, Bowles — who wasalso chief of staff for PresidentBill Clinton — was named co-chairman of President BarackObama’s National Commissionon Fiscal Responsibility andReform.The commission’s responsi- bility was to address the deficit.“Now that I have familiarizedmyself with our nation’s finances,I am really worried,” Bowles said.“This deficit is like a cancer. It willdestroy our country from within.”Bowles said the plan the com-mission presented to the presi-dent was developed so it wouldnot hurt the nation’s fragileeconomy even more.He said the commission didn’t want to hurt lower-incomepeople when making cuts, so itdidn’t encourage cutting pro-grams such as food stamps.Instead, the commissionrecommended cuts to military spending.“I believe that Americashould not be the world’s police-man,” he said.But not all of the commis-sion’s recommendations wereincluded in the final deficit bill, which was passed by Congressin August.“I’m disappointed. I wantedus to do something bold,”Bowles said.He said Congress’s actionsin passing the August bill were“pitiful” and an “embarrass-ment” to the country.Bowles said the governmentneeds to reduce its deficit by atleast $4 trillion in this decade.“We didn’t just make up the$4 trillion,” he said. “That num- ber is the minimum that has to be reduced to stabilize the debt.”The country cannot tax or cutits way out of its financial prob-lems, he said.This means issues such asMedicare, Medicaid, healthcare, Social Security and taxreform need to be addressed,Bowles said.“We can’t slowly grow our way out of this problem,” he said.Many students that attendedBowles’ speech said it was

Kathy, 6-year-old Rachel, 7-year-old Isabella and Cray Gunn worried about their privacy if a road to the library was built by their house.
By Alison Lee
Staff Writer
Cray and Kathy Gunn eagerly sup-ported plans for a free-standing library for Carrboro — until they learned the siterezoning would redirect traffic past theirhome. After they voiced complaints but failedto stop Carrboro’s Board of Aldermenfrom approving in April the lot’s rezon-ing, they hired a lawyer to represent theirconcerns.Cray Gunn said that plan worked — theOrange County Board of Commissionersrejected the 210 Hillsborough Road siteat their Aug. 23 meeting, which residentsattended to speak against the location.County officials cited the cost, morethan $600,000, and the lot’s heavily resi-dential locale as reasons for the rejection. While their road is safe from library traffic, the Gunns say they felt ignored by most local officials throughout the process.But Dan Coleman, a Carrboro alder-man, said residents’ concerns were con-sidered but had to be balanced with localdemand for a library.
Rezoning dilemmas
Because Orange County would fundlibrary construction, it filed an applicationto rezone the proposed site for develop-ment.But the Carrboro Board of Aldermenneeded to approve the application for itto take effect, said Craig Benedict, OrangeCounty planning director. And at that point, concerned citizensgot involved.Cray Gunn said more than 30 residentsattended a public hearing in March tooppose the rezoning, but only 10 spoke inits favor.Residents also filed a protest peti-
