Thorp:UNC to be rolemodel
By Nicole Comparato
Assistant University Editor
 After two years spent grap-pling with a damaging NCAA investigation and unprec-edented budget cuts, ChancellorHolden Thorp will look into thefuture. At today’s full meeting of theBoard of Trustees — the last of the academic year — Thorp willgive a presentation that introduc-es UNC as a potential role modelfor public institutions across thecountry.“Carolina, because of itsaffordability, is in an usual posi-tion to lead a national discus-sion,” Thorp said. “We haven’tdoubled our tuition like otheruniversities… and we haverecord-low levels of debt.”The issues Thorp will addressinclude the cost of education, fac-ulty retention and new researchobjectives, he said.Thorp said he wants the board’s committees to begin dis-cussion about the pressure thatstate budgets and schools areundergoing and how to providerelief.Thorp will also discuss theUniversity’s next long-term fund-raising campaign, which admin-istrators hope will be the largestin the University’s history. With the debate surroundingtuition hikes on hold, Thorp saidthere is no time like the presentto step back and re-evaluate. At the board’s budget, financeand audit committee meeting Wednesday, board membersexpressed relief that the long-debated tuition battle had cometo an end, at least for now.“It’s so nice to have a positivereport,” said Sallie Shuping-Russell, chairwoman of the com-mittee.

Before the 2008 presiden-tial election, President Barack Obama visited UNC on his roadto White House.But today, some members of UNC’s College Republicans hopea new slogan will take hold: “Yes we Cain.”Former Republican presiden-tial candidate Herman Cain willspeak to what organizers hope will be fullhouse today.Cain’s staff requested thatstudents sub-mit questions before theevent so Caincan answerthem duringhis speech,CollegeRepublicansTreasurerGarrett Jacobssaid.College Republicans, whichis sponsoring the event with theUNC Economics Club and Young America’s Foundation, will be inthe Pit today collecting questionsfor Cain, Jacobs said.The event is free to the public,and no tickets are required, saidGreg Steele, chairman of CollegeRepublicans.Seating will be on a first-come,first-served basis for the 500-seat venue, Steele said.Cain will discuss his campaignexperience, his thoughts on thecurrent race and how his busi-ness background shapes his viewson the economy, Steele said.“It will be an economic speechas well as a political speech.Steele said the event hasgarnered positive feedback.Organizers have reached out tomedia outlets throughout theTriangle to publicize the event.“We have had a great responsefrom students and from thecommunity,” he said. “I am very confident that it will be a packedevent.”Marc Seelinger, execu-tive vice chairman of CollegeRepublicans, said the event will be appealing to people of all backgrounds.“Most of the Democrats Iknow are enthusiastic about it,”he said. “They may not agree with his politics, but they think it will be a fun event.”Cain endorsed Republicanpresidential candidate NewtGingrich, but political scienceprofessor James Stimson said

Cain likely will not have much of an effect on voters’ decisions inthe May 8 Republican primary.Endorsements usually don’thave much of an influence on theoutcome of an election, he said. While Cain can provide a valu-able account of his experiencesrunning for office, his time in thepolitical arena will be short-lived,Stimson said.“I predict that he will be a one-hit wonder.”Steele said CollegeRepublicans’ main goal now isto let students know where Cain will be speaking: Biomolecular2204, near the UNC Hospitalsparking decks.But Seelinger said he doesn’tthink the location will affectattendance. The group plans toorganize a delegation to meet inthe Pit at 3:30 p.m. to walk to theevent, Jacobs said.“A lot of people are willing to walk a little farther to hear whathe has to say,” Seelinger said.

Sophomore Jordan Imbrey hada name for a character — or three.“The Final Resting Place of Smick Bumley” tells the story of a son, a father and a grandfather —all named Smick Oliver Bumley.In the play, the son — whogoes by Bum — and the grand-father — who goes by Smick — attempt to learn from oneanother after Oli, the father,abandoned the family.“It became about two charac-ters learning to sympathize witheach other and not blame eachother for what someone else did,”Imbrey said.He said the one-act festival isthe first time he has let go of oneof his stories’ reins and allowedsomeone else to direct it.“I’m trying to take as far a step back as possible,” he said.“It’s more interesting to see how someone interprets the work than try to micromanage andcontrol what they do with it.”That responsibility goes tosophomore Clare Shaffer, who isdirecting the play. She said thescript’s opportunities for artisticchoices appealed to her.“I pushed really hard to getthat play,” she said.But Imbrey has already direct-ed his story once before.During winter break, a friend wanted to work on a film proj-ect, so Imbrey adapted his work for filmand directedit. It is now inpost-production.Shaffer said she didn’t wantthe film to influence the play.“I refused to watch the film version until after,” she said.But Ben Elling, a sophomoredramatic arts and political sciencemajor, has gotten a taste of both. After playing Bum in the film, heis playing Smick in the festival.“I kind of relished the oppor-tunity to approach this piecefrom a new position,” he said.“Having the opportunity to play Bum and understanding the wantfor closure at the end helps meplay Smick because I know where both characters are coming from.” And even though the play isone act, Angel Giddens, whoplays Bum’s mother Marie, saidthere is plenty of room to explorethe characters.“I was originally intrigued by the depth you get with the char-acters in a short amount of time,”she said. “You just have to diveright in and do what you feel.Giddens said the reality of thecharacters and of the theme willallow audience members to con-nect with the story.“Nobody has a perfect picture of a family,” she said. “I think that issomething everyone can connectand relate to on a personal level.”

 While many Meadowmont res-idents have been outside enjoyingthe sun, some have experienced a different kind of exposure.Last Saturday was the fourthtime since February that a manexposed himself in the commu-nity. Most recently, the flasher was in his car with childrennearby.Chapel Hill police spokesmanLt. Kevin Gunter said the inci-dent occurred Saturday at theintersection of Gurnsey Trail andOld Barn Lane, not far from theMeadowmont YMCA. He saidthe caller who reported the inci-dent was walking her dog whenthe man exposed himself fromhis car.Previous incidents occurred onFeb. 29, March 6 and March 15,he said.Gunter said police are investi-gating the situation but have noleads on the man’s identity.“There are a lot of consisten-cies that would lead us to believethis is the same person,” he saidof the suspect, who is describedas a white male in his late twen-ties or early thirties with a thin beard.Gunter said reports indicatedhe was driving a gray or silver Volkswagen Golf.He called the sightings iso-lated incidents and said there hasnot been a history of flashers inChapel Hill.“There’s not a pattern we haveseen with specific individuals inspecific areas,” he said.Bill Ferrell, manager of theMeadowmont Community  Association, said this is the firsttime something like this has hap-pened in Meadowmont and thatresidents have remained calm but vigilant.“It just happens to be ananomaly, and it’s very unfortu-nate and very sad,” he said.Ferrell said Meadowmont hasa neighborhood watch policy and keeps a community intranetthat receives updates from policeand allows residents to com-municate. He said police oftencontact him when somethinghappens.Overall, residents say they arenot very concerned.Resident Catherine Speightsaid she was surprised when shefirst heard the news.“I thought we lived in a safecommunity,” she said.She said that while she wassomewhat concerned, she alsofound it comical.“I think most people laughed when they heard about it,” shesaid.UNC social work studentCandace Killian said she reacted with surprise when she founda letter on her door explaining what happened. She said she stillfeels safe but expressed concernfor children’s safety.“There are so many kids in thearea,” she said.Killian said she first heardabout the incidents Wednesday.Gunter said anyone who seessomeone matching the suspect’sdescription should contactChapel Hill police immediately. Additionally, anyone who seesa vehicle matching the descrip-tion should report the make,model and license plate topolice.

During a sting operationconducted last week, officersfrom Chapel Hill, Carrboro andHillsborough caught six retail-ers who willingly sold alcohol tominors.Followed by several undercov-er officers, three volunteer under-age buyers — college studentsfrom a local community collegecriminal justice program — wentto 31 stores across the county andattempted to purchase alcoholic beverages on March 8.Nine Hillsborough sellers were checked and citations wereissued to clerks at Steve’s OneStop, Eagles 5, and Food Lionfor selling to an underage buyer.Nine sellers in Carrboro werechecked and citations were issuedto clerks at TJ’s Campus Beverage,Food Lion, and Harris Teeter forselling to an underage buyer.Thirteen sellers were checkedin Chapel Hill and no citations were issued, Hillsborough PoliceChief Duane Hampton said.Last year, several patrol offi-cers and the ALERT team issued18 citations to retailers and clubsthat sold alcohol to minors inChapel Hill, down from 39 cita-tions in 2010, according to Lt.Kevin Gunter of the Chapel Hillpolice department.Some sellers were repeat vio-lations. It was the fourth citationfor TJ’s Campus Beverage andthe third citation for Carrboro’sHarris Teeter since 2010,according to a press release.“If the stores ask for ID thenthe buyer shows them their valid(underage) ID,” Hampton said.“There’s no trickery to this.”The sting is part of a largereffort of preventing under-age access to alcohol, whichdeclined since the formation of the Alcohol Law EnforcementResponse Team in 2009. ALERT’s efforts extend toreacting to noise complaints andproperty damages where alcoholmight be involved.Lt. Chris Atack of theCarrboro police department saidthree out of nine retailers violat-ing the law is a high failure rate.“Any gas station, bar or super-market has to have an ABCpermit to sell alcohol, train theiremployees to verify ID prop-erly and know when employeesshould refuse to sell to some- body,” he said. “All it takes is theemployee to be vigilant.Despite focusing most of theireffort on enforcement, ALERTofficers said that a strong educa-tion is key to preventing under-age drinking.Hampton said the policesupport organizations like the

Orange Partnership and the vehicle injury prevention pro-gram to help make young peopleaware of the dangers of drinking.The program, which is comingto Orange High School in April,aims to educate children aboutimpaired driving and vehicleinjury prevention.Being in a culture that pro-motes drinking as part of collegelife, officers said the biggest chal-lenge is changing the students’mindset.“It might not seem like a bigdeal to drink at 19,” Atack said.“But if you look at the amount of money spent on alcohol and itsresidual effect, it ties to a biggerproblem.” Among 74 alcohol-relatedcharges in Chapel Hill last year,14 charges were related to crimessuch as fraudulent IDs, drugpossession, larceny and battery,according to police reports.“Our challenge is to work  with the University, local law enforcement and the commu-nity to develop a solution to try and change certain behaviors,”Chapel Hill Police SpokesmanJosh Mecimore saidOn campus, students are see-ing increased efforts to educateand prevent underage drinkingand alcohol abuse.Students who receive an alco-hol citation must participate inTarheel BASICS, a preventivealcohol abuse intervention that began five years ago.“Students who have returnedhave drank alcohol less often andless quantity-wise when they dochoose to drink,” health educatorJenifer Zanzonico said.
