National Signing Day, the firstopportunity for Division I collegefootball recruits to sign letters of intent to their future schools, hasfinally arrived.But there’s another verdict for which members of the UNC foot- ball program have been patiently  waiting. On Oct. 28, ChancellorHolden Thorp and former ath-letic director Dick Baddour stood before members of the NCAA committee on infractions to dis-cuss the nine major violationsthe UNC football program wascharged with committing.The average waiting time for a verdict after an NCAA hearing issix to eight weeks, but UNC has yet to learn of its fate more thanthree months later.For new head football coachLarry Fedora — a man saddled with the challenge of inheriting aprogram still in the shadow of con-troversy — it’s a lingering problemthat is keeping him from beingable to move on with clean slate.“February 1 (signing day) will be on top of us here any minute,so I’m scared to death of that,”Fedora said. “As far as the NCAA sanctions, we can only deal with what we know and what we thinkis going to happen.“That’s a cloud that everybody is using against us right now inrecruiting. The sooner it gets here,the faster we’ll be able to move on.”

 Athletic director BubbaCunningham, who replacedBaddour after his retirement, began his job Nov. 14. Less than amonth later, Cunningham hiredFedora, who has since brought inan almost completely new staff.But skeletons still remain. Inits response to the NCAA’s noticeof allegations sent in September,UNC highlighted a list of self-imposed sanctions which includescholarship reductions and fines.The NCAA could still decidemore punishments are in order. Inpast cases with other schools, theNCAA has handed down postsea-son bans and probation sentences,and further reduction of scholar-ships is a possibility. That could

 WINSTON-SALEM — It should have comeas no surprise that North Carolina’s TylerZeller, Harrison Barnes and John Henson allreached double-digit points at Joel Coliseumon Tuesday night against Wake Forest.But as the Tar Heels shot just 31 percentfrom the field — UNC’s lowest field-goal per-centage in a win since coach Roy Williams’ first year as coach in 2003 — in their 600th ACC win, the numbers almost seemed out of place.Slow from the tip, No. 5 UNC (19-3, 6-1 ACC) played dormant offensive basketball toedge Wake Forest (11-11, 2-6 ACC) with a 68-53 victory that handed the Demon Deaconstheir seventh loss in January alone.“Neither team shot the ball in the bas-ket,” Williams said. “It was an ugly game.Sometimes you have to win ugly if you wantto have a great year.”From the start of the game, second-chancepoints and shots from the paint seemed to bethe only ones falling in North Carolina’s favor.Most of those, too, came from Zeller, who ledthe team with 18 points and 18 boards. About 14 minutes into the first half,Henson’s third of four blocks for the night was quickly converted into a slam by Zeller.Finally, it seemed, the Tar Heels found com-fort on the offensive end.But even that comfort was temporary.“They did a great job of taking us out of  what we wanted to do, and then we justmissed a lot of shots,” Zeller said. “Some of itcould be that we’re a little bit tired after threegames in six days. Some of it could just bethat we were off tonight.” Although a 9-0 run gave North Carolinaa lead with a little breathing room, the TarHeels still only managed to shoot 34.3 per-cent from the field in the first half.In the second half, that number dropped back below 30 in no time — down to 27.8.“I’ve got to do a better job of maybe work-ing practices so we don’t take as much of their legs because I really didn’t think that we would shoot the basketball like that,” Williams said. “I told my team, ‘I’m tired of saying we’re good shooters. Start making thedaggum things in the game.’”

on’t get us wrong, the possibility of being able to talk to snakesand have them attack your gross, fat cousins is undeniably awe-some. But, like your letter from Hogwarts, it is never going tohappen.Someone needs to remind the good people of Madison, Wis., of that fact. A 31-year-old woman was attacked Monday by a ball python after she tried toremove the snake from its owner’s cage. The 12-year-old python, named Annie, latched on to the woman’s face and refused to let go until coaxed by her owner.The woman had reportedly handled large snakes before and thought she hadnothing to fear — but Annie the python wasn’t tryin’ to have none of that mess.Guess she should have worked on her Voldemort skills …

Bill Christian has spentalmost five years waiting to buildCharterwood, his mixed-use devel-opment. But, like many develop-ers, he has had to combat a daunt-ing town-approval process. At Monday night’s ChapelHill Town Council meeting, thecouncil voted against a rezoningrequest and a special use permitfor Charterwood. The councilrejected similar applications inMarch.“We think that we have giventhe town an excellent proposaland it got turned down,” Christiansaid. “It’s been pretty difficult.”Christian and his associateshad modified their building plans with the help of town staff, theNorthern Area Task Force andsuggestions from neighbors insurrounding communities.But at the meeting, councilmembers spoke of concerns withthe development’s environmen-tal impacts, building height andproximity to the street.During the meeting, TownCouncil member Gene Peaseraised questions about the town’splanning approval process, whichcan be lengthy and complicated.Chapel Hill is currently reviewing 27 developmentproposals — several for otherlarge, mixed-use projects likeCharterwood.“It’s not a fast process,” TownCouncil member Penny Richsaid. “We have high standards.”Officials said a new review sys-tem and changes stemming fromChapel Hill 2020 could speed upthe process, while creating devel-opments that serve the town’s best interest.
Development process
The town’s approval pro-cess can take anywhere fromsix weeks for small subdivi-sions to nine months for largerprojects such as GreenbridgeCondominiums, according toDevelopment Manager GenePoveromo.The road to approval begins with meetings with town staff and land use regulators, and aconcept plan review from theTown Council and other com-mittees. After a series of other meet-ings with the town, a final pub-lic hearing where community members can comment on theproposal is the last step beforeapproval.For Larry Short, developer of the proposed Shortbread Loftsdevelopment, the approval pro-cess has also been a long one.Short’s application, whichtown officials are still consider-ing, has been in limbo for four years — but he said he still sup-ports the procedure.“I would say the process isthorough, and it overall benefitsthe quality of the development,”Short said. “Ours has had somehiccups.”But Christian said the longprocess discourages people fromowning businesses in the area.“It already has hurt the town,”Christian said. “The real estatemarket is already risky enough, because it is so closely tied tothe economy, to also have to deal with this process.Ruby Sinreich, a former mem- ber of the Chapel Hill PlanningBoard, said all aspects of the pro-cess have a purpose.“Maybe in the past few yearsChapel Hill has become morecrowded, so proposals are biggerand more contentious,” she said.“But the process keeps ChapelHill a pleasant place to live.
Changes to the system
The Town Council proposedand implemented a new joint-review system last year to shortenthe process — but the new plan

He’s Not Here won’t sell byoriginal goal date of Feb. 1
Two business partners who areclosing a deal to purchase He’sNot Here will not take ownershipof the Chapel Hill staple today, as was originally planned.Neal DePersia of NationalRestaurant Properties, the com-pany that He’s Not owner DavidKitzmiller hired to market the business, said last week thatownership would ideally transi-tion by today.DePersia said Tuesday that thedeal is still in the process but willnot be complete today.He said he could not commenton the cause of the delay.In an email Sunday, DePersiasaid the deal is in the hands of an attorney who needs to finalizethe wording of the lease that isacceptable to all.He said those involved in thedeal must also have the signa-tures of the physical property’slandlords before they can close.
Rules and Judiciary votesagainst pulling out of ASG
UNC Student Congress’ Rulesand Judiciary committee movedTuesday to pass unfavorably aresolution that would allow stu-dents to vote on UNC’s participa-tion in the Association of StudentGovernments.The controversial resolution was opposed by Student Body President Mary Cooper and ASGPresident Atul Bhula.“I’m hearing a lack of informa-tion,” Bhula said. “If you’re goingto criticize ASG, then come to it.”Marc Seelinger, sponsor of theresolution, said students deserveto choose how their fees are used. ASG is funded from an annual $1student fee.Eight members of the com-mittee voted against the bill. Thefour members who supportedthe resolution will be allowed topresent a minority report to thefull Student Congress next week.If the resolution passes, areferendum will be offered tostudents on the Feb. 14 ballot.Committee members expressedconcern about the timing of theresolution as the UNC-systemBoard of Governors prepares to vote on a tuition increase.“It just seems absurd to with-draw support the only monthit matters,” member Christy Lambden said.
OWASA responds to sewerflood at Ephesus Church
The Orange Water and Sewer Authority responded to an over-flow of untreated wastewaterfrom a sewer manhole at around9:15 a.m. Tuesday.The overflow occurred at thePark at Chapel Hill apartmentsin the 1200 block of EphesusChurch Road and was stopped atabout 9:35 a.m.OWASA estimated the volumeof the overflow was about 200gallons based on the known dura-tion, and was most likely a resultof an accumulation of grease that blocked the flow of water.The spill occurred in theBooker Creek drainage basin andOWASA crew disinfected andflushed the area with water.OWASA reported the spill tothe N.C. Division of Water Quality, which is reviewing the matter.

 About 2,000 students ran out of their allottedCarolina Computing Initiative printing money last semester due to rising costs, forcing them totake money out of their pockets for more paper. With the cost per page now sitting at 10 centsinstead of 5 cents — a change implemented by Information Technology Services in the fall —students are only given 400 pages of printing,rather than last year’s 800.Jeremiah Joyner, manager of ITS Labs andSystems, said the number of students whoexceeded the $40 allotment jumped from about1,100 in fall 2010 to about 2,000 last fall.But also contributing to the growing numberis an increase in students using the printers —about 3,000 more students used CCI printing inthe fall, he said.“(This past) fall there were 30,000 studentsthat got the printing allotment. Two thousandout of 30,000 that printed more doesn’t seem to be that big of a number,” he said. Although the amount of people who exceededthe allotment increased, Joyner said it is impor-tant to keep in mind the large number of stu-dents who don’t use all of their printing money.Last spring, students printed about 280 pageson average. Joyner said 12 percent of studentsprinted more than 700 pages, and 25 percentdid not print anything at all.But students who have run out said they arefrustrated with the increased costs and the needto add money to their expense accounts.Freshman Madison Kelly said she went pasther allotment by about $7 last semester.“Syllabuses are usually about, you know,10 pages, and then you have practice exams,practice problems. It’s just a lot,” she said. “Butit would be helpful if we had more money forprinting.”Sophomore Pierre Lourens said his printingmoney started running out quickly because of acreative writing class.“I had to print out copies of all the stories …so that took like $17 very quickly, whereas last year I probably would not have had that sameproblem.”Joyner said CCI would not return to providing800 pages, but could increase the allotment by smaller amounts in the future.“If we increase allotment by 100 pages, wecould probably help out another 1,000 students,”he said. “(It’s) the question of looking at it againand making sure that we don’t encourage peopleto print more than is appropriate, but also againtrying to make sure we’re providing the serviceto the majority of students.”

Beaming from cheers of thestanding-room-only crowd, for-mer Charlotte mayor Pat McCrory confirmed Tuesday in Greensboro what everyone in attendance already knew: he’s in. Again.McCrory, a Republican who nar-rowly lost to Gov. Bev Perdue in 2008,has positioned himself as the front-runner in the state gubernatorial race.Campaign finance reports showthat he raised about $2.6 million andhas about $2 million in cash on hand. A statewide survey releasedMonday by Public Policy Polling, aleft-leaning organization based inRaleigh, found that McCrory gar-nered more support from voters thanany of 13 hypothetical Democraticchallengers.The Democratic Party was sentscrambling after Perdue recently announced she would not seek re-election.Rep. Bill Faison, D-Orange, andLt. Gov. Walter Dalton have already entered the Democratic primary, while former UNC-system PresidentErskine Bowles has remained silentabout a potential run.“I am proud to return back home,to officially announce that I will runfor governor,” McCrory told a crowd-ed room of supporters. “We’re goingto fix this broken economy here inNorth Carolina.Borrowing a line from his campaignsong — The Who’s “Won’t Get Fooled Again,” — McCrory said that for toolong in North Carolina the new bosshas been the same as the old boss.“I don’t want to be your boss,” hesaid. “I want to be your governor.McCrory said Perdue has left a broken government that’s been anembarrassment to the state.“FBI investigations, felony con- victions, plea bargains, pay-to-play fundraising, tuition hikes, firedchancellors, higher drop-out rate,unfunded liabilities, crony appoint-ments,” he said. “The list goes on andon and on.”Brenda Formo, a retired Army colonel and president of GreaterGreensboro Republican Women’sClub, says she came to supportMcCory because of his strong busi-ness background.“We need a Republican to turnthings around,” she said. “He knowshow to grow businesses, how to cre-ate businesses, which is cutting redtape.”Some of the ideas McCrory men-tioned were creating jobs in the statethrough spending cuts, the openingof energy exploration and reversingmandates and regulations he says putstrains on small businesses.McCrory said his campaign willalso focus on improving education,his original passion.“I want to set up a pay system thatrewards the best teachers,” he said.“And we know who they are.”“Maybe after I finish my job asgovernor, I’ll get a real promotionand become a teacher.”Ruth Revel, McCrory’s high schooldrama teacher, whose eyes barely peered over the podium, told thecrowd that she knew back then he was destined to be a star.“Pat had swagger,” she said. After the speech, Formo saidMcCrory hit all the right notes.“We’re going to win,” she said, and walked away smiling through theenergized crowd.

The office printedout $600 worth of calendarsand distributed them to studentgroups, Houston said.“It’s a relatively small amountto make sure everyone isinformed,” she said.Heather Williams, chairwom-an of the history department’s African American history monthlecture committee, said many organizations on campus areparticipating.“Not only does it let peopleknow what events are happen-ing, but it’s also a statementabout the University’s commit-ment to honoring Black History Month,” she said.The keynote speaker this year will be Bernice JohnsonReagon, one of the found-ers of the Student NonviolentCoordinating Committee.“She brings a rich backgroundof having been an activist and aleader in the civil rights move-ment,” Williams said.Eric Campbell, president of the Black Student Movement,said in previous years he didn’tknow what events were beingoffered around campus.“The campus didn’t cometogether,” he said, adding thatthe publicity is different this yeardue to the calendar.“Black History Month isn’t just for Africans-Americans tocelebrate. It’s for the whole cam-pus to celebrate,” he said.Ilyasah Shabazz, co-chair- woman of BSM’s Black History Month committee, said black

Former member of te Capel hill Planning Board
has received mixed reviews.In the new system, all relevant boards meet to discuss and voteon the proposal at one time.Short said it took longer toschedule a time when everyone was available for the meetingthan it would have taken to meet with each board individually.But Rich said she likes joint-review because she was able tohear all boards speak at once.“I don’t go to every commit-tee’s meetings, I’d be dead if Idid,” Rich said. “But I think someof the boards took issue with it because it didn’t flow well forthem.”Jon Keener, the developmentmanager of 140 West Franklin,said he wishes he could have hada joint-review meeting whenhe was in the process of gettingapproved.“That would have been a greatexperience as far as streamlininggoes,” he said.Town Council member MattCzajkowski said he hopes ChapelHill 2020 — the town’s long-termcomprehensive plan — will goeven further in cutting the timethe review process takes by outlin-ing specific criteria for developersand businesses looking to move tothe town.“Ideally the outcome of 2020is that we know what we’re look-ing for and have the courage tosay we’re confident in our visionand there are certain areas that we’re going to zone for certainthings.”
