Crash blocks Franklin Street for hours
By Liz Crampton
Staff Writer
Traffic on East Franklin andHenderson Streets came to a halt Wednesday afternoon after a semi-truck hit a power line.Capt. Jeff Clark of the ChapelHill police said that no one wasinjured in the accident.But the truck downed con-necting power lines and nearly caused a power outage, said Lt.John Wellons of the Chapel HillFire Department. As a result,traffic had to be diverted fromEast Franklin Street for morethan three hours.Clark said the truck wasmaking a delivery to 140 WestFranklin when it turned too wide. According to a Chapel Hillpolice release, police respondedto the resulting accident at 1:54p.m.Freshman Chris McGrath saw the accident occur.“About 3 feet before he hit thepole, it was apparent that thetruck wouldn’t make the corner,”he said.Caroline Engle, a UNC junior who also witnessed the accident,said she heard the sound beforeshe saw the crash — and thoughshe found the accident shocking,she was impressed by the quick police response.“The police got here pretty fast,” she said. “It’s a good thingthere was a timely response.”Clark said the driver hasreceived a citation, though hedidn’t know the details of thecharge. After the incident, East

Playingan NBA  waitinggame
By Brandon Moree
Assistant Sports Editor
Let the guessing games begin. After the North Carolina men’s basketball season endedSunday at the hands of theKansas Jayhawks, speculationis now swirling around who willmake the jump to the profes-sional ranks.The trio of Harrison Barnes,John Henson and Tyler Zeller allspurned the NBA last off-seasonin the hopes of making a nationalchampionship run this season.But at season’s end, the TarHeels were no closer to hanginganother banner than they werea year before — and the NBA isstill waiting. With barely enough time toallow UNC’s Elite Eight loss tosink in, no one made any indi-cation about a potential deci-sion.“I don’t think any of us werethinking that far,” Barnes saidafter Sunday’s game. “I think weall had anticipation of going toNew Orleans.”Zeller, of course, will graduatethis May and will likely be takenin the first round of the June 28NBA draft at Madison SquareGarden. But which, if any, of histeammates will be joining him isstill up in the air.Barnes has the highest draftstock, and he is projected tofall somewhere in the top-seven picks by Draft Express.Henson and sophomore pointguard Kendall Marshall are alsopotential lottery picks, which would put them in the top 14players selected.Rumors swirled Wednesday that Barnes, Marshall andHenson had all decided toleave and an announcement was imminent. But at 3:53 Wednesday, Marshall tweeted“rumors, rumors, rumors.Freshman James MichaelMcAdoo also has first roundpotential this year, but early projections have him nearthe top of the board for 2013.Inside Carolina reported Wednesday that McAdoo’sfather said McAdoo will look atoptions but currently plans toreturn to North Carolina nextseason.Coach Roy Williams will be very involved in the decision-making process for his playersand hopes to get those conversa-

About 200 people participated in a silent arch fro Franklin Street to the Pit Wednesday in honor of Trayvon martin, a 17-year-old fro Florida who was killed Feb. 26.

Staff Writer
Dressed in hoodies and carryingSkittles and tea in their hands, about200 people silently marched in hopesof bringing justice to Trayvon Martin.The march, which started atthe post office on Franklin Street Wednesday and ended in the Pit, wasone of many held nationwide to raiseawareness about Martin’s death.Martin was a black 17-year-old who was shot and killed by neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman, who said he acted in self-defense.Because of a Florida law thatallows a person to use deadly forcein self-defense, police say they don’thave cause to arrest Zimmerman. As Zimmerman and his supportershave remained relatively quiet, peoplehave spoken out against the incidentnationwide.Students, UNC employees and localresidents held signs while marchingquietly from the post office to the Pitto protest the shooting and its after-math, starting at around 11:30 a.m.The participants wore hoodies andcarried Skittles and tea because theunarmed Martin had been wearingand carrying those items when he wasshot.Freshman Brandon Napier, one of the participants, said he is disgusted by the situation.“It’s heartbreaking to know he waskilled for no reason,” he said. “My heart goes out to the family.”Napier said it’s important forChapel Hill to be involved because thecase affects the country as a whole —not just Florida.“I’m proud to be at a university that observes this,” he said. “People inChapel Hill have a right to march. A few police officers were onhand for the march to the Pit, butChapel Hill Police Department PatrolCaptain Jeff Clark said the presence was to get the crowd across the street

UNC-system schools emphasize e∞ciency 
By Daniel Wiser
Assistant State & National Editor
Efficiency has become thenew buzzword across the UNCsystem in recent years.Universities have adapted totough economic and budgetary times by cutting costs in theiroperations, resulting in thereorganization of administrativestructures and academic pro-gram reviews.But one national higher edu-cation group says universitiesin the state have yet to fulfilltheir goals to operate more effi-ciently — and administratorsshould seek to minimize tuitionincreases until their campusesmeet those goals.The American Council of Trustees and Alumni, a non-profit organization based in Washington, D.C., that advocatesfor affordability at universi-ties, sent a letter to the UNC-system Board of Governors lastmonth urging members to voteagainst proposed tuition and feeincreases.Rather than opting “to shiftthe burden to taxpaying fami-lies,” the letter said the boardshould hold firm on tuitionincreases until universities become more cost-effective.Board members ultimately approved an average tuitionand fee increase of 8.8 percentsystemwide, including a tuitionincrease of $695, or 13.5 percent,for in-state undergraduates atUNC-CH. According to informationcompiled by the IntegratedPostSecondary Education Data System, administrative spend-ing outpaced instructionalspending at nine of the UNC-system’s 16 universities betweenthe 2002-03 and 2008-09academic years. Administrativespending at two schools, N.C.Central University and UNC-Greensboro, increased by almost 50 more percentagepoints than instructional spend-ing during that period. Administrative spendingcomprises all expenses relatedto institutional support, whileinstructional spending includesexpenses for academic supportservices such as peer tutoringand advising. At UNC-CH, instructionalspending decreased from 39percent to 35.6 percent of theUniversity’s operating expenses between the 1999-2000 and2009-10 academic years, while the portion of operatingexpenses devoted to administra-tive spending remained virtually unchanged at 3.8 percent. Anne Neal, president of thecouncil and a member of theacademic advisory committee forthe John William Pope Centerfor Higher Education Policy — a conservative think tank basedin Raleigh — said universitiesshould strive to reduce costs before “asking for more money from the families of NorthCarolina.”The median household in thestate contributed 6.4 percent of its income to tuition and fees atUNC-CH in 1999-2000, but thatcontribution increased to 13.4percent by 2009-10.“It’s not courageous to raisetuition, but it is courageous toinsist that institutions find waysto use their resources to enhancequality and affordability,” Nealsaid.Board Chairwoman HannahGage said the tuition planpassed by the board last monthreferences the need to expandupon efficiencies previously implemented across the system.Former UNC-system PresidentErskine Bowles supervisedthe elimination of almost 900administrative positions duringhis tenure.Current President ThomasRoss has committed to control-

The impetus for the first collaboration between CUAB and WXYC came from a famous jazz musician. While Googling himself, jazz pianistMatthew Shipp discovered that UNCradio station WXYC frequently plays hismusic. He asked the station to help himfind a venue to perform in the area.“We were so pleased that he contactedus,” said Karina Soni, outreach coordina-tor for WXYC.“We were flattered, because it’s an art-ist we really appreciate, and he saw thatand wants to perform.”Soni said the station jumped at thechance to bring Shipp and his current bandmates to the Chapel Hill area — but they didn’t have the funding to do itthemselves.So Soni asked Evan Allan, music chair-man for the Carolina Union ActivitiesBoard, if the organization would collabo-rate with WXYC for the first time. Allan said he was happy to help.“That type of jazz isn’t represented oncampus at a lot,” he said.Ultimately, CUAB secured the funding— about $5,000 — and WXYC publi-

It might be due to AugustineJoseph’s audacity that MichelleObama will be giving the May commencement address at N.C. Agricultural & Technical University.Joseph, president of the univer-sity’s College Democrats of N.C.chapter, had the opportunity tomeet President Barack Obama lastOctober. After their handshake andofficial picture, Joseph presented thepresident with his N.C. A&T logolapel pin.“This is a symbol of Aggie pride,he said. “You will need it when youcome back and speak at A&T.”The president gave a sincerelaugh, Joseph said. “But then I said,‘Mr. President, I am serious.’”Joseph said Obama responded with an “OK.”During the course of this year,N.C. A&T Chancellor Harold Martintried to reach out to Obama andinvite him to speak at the May grad-uation ceremony.But it wasn’t until last week thatN.C. A&T received a call regardingthe Obama administration’s deci-sion. The White House told theuniversity that Michelle Obama, nother husband, would be speaking atthe address.The White House officially announced Wednesday that thefirst lady would be speaking at N.C. A&T’s graduation. Compensation forthe commencement address has not been requested.Greensboro Coliseum will hostthe graduation ceremony with thefirst lady and about 1,100 N.C. A&Tgraduates.The university is expecting anincrease in attendants to hearMichelle Obama speak. The presi-dent is not expected to be in atten-dance.Previously, the university hostedDonna Brazile, a political analystfor the Democratic Party, at itsDecember commencement andRandal Pinkett, co-founder, chair-man and CEO of BCT Partners, forits spring 2011 ceremony.“Twitter says the student body is really excited. As a campus com-munity, we are excited and abso-lutely pleased,” said Nicole Pride,associate vice chancellor for uni- versity relations.Joseph said he saw tweets frompeople worried about not being ableto get into the graduation ceremony  because of the high profile status of the speaker.“People were saying, ‘It’s going to be a circus,’” he said.James Stimson, professor of political science at UNC-CH, saidin an email that the Obama admin-istration’s decision to have Michellespeak at N.C. A&T isn’t withoutpolitical motivation.“Everything the president and firstlady do during campaign season iscalculated for political goals,” he said.

 As UNC seniors prepare to donCarolina blue gowns, local hotels arealso gearing up for graduation seasonand the influx of families, alumni and visitors that it brings. After what Laurie Paolicelli,executive director of the Chapel Hill/Orange County Visitors Bureau,described as the “perfect storm of a recession” local hotels felt in 2010,she is optimistic about the visitors —and money — these upcoming events will bring to the industry. Wednesday marked a major step inthe local hotel business, as developers broke ground for Carrboro’s first down-town hotel, a 142-room Hampton Inn& Suites.Paolicelli said in recent years, new hotels opening in Durham and cor-porate budget cuts have caused localhotels to suffer — but with the upcom-ing hotel and other projects, she is opti-mistic that they are bouncing back.Since October, Paolicelli estimatedChapel Hill hotels have seen a 6 to 10percent increase in demand for rooms,though rates are still down from pre-recession levels.But she said based on trends, shethinks rising demand will continue. Average occupancy has increased by 2.1 percent from last year to total59 percent for Orange County so farthis year, and Paolicelli said hotels inChapel Hill reach an average occupan-cy of 60 to 70 percent on weekends.The state as a whole saw 43.8 per-cent average occupancy in January of 2012.“People stay in a hotel room for a reason; depending on that reason they look for different prices. Weddings want elegance,” she said. “Athletic trav-elers look for a more reasonable rate.”Paolicelli said The Hampton Inn & Suites, which will be located at 300 E.Main St. as part of a $20 million mixed-use development, will be the first moder-ately priced hotel in downtown Carrboroand will offer options for people visitingfor special events like graduation.Laura Van Sant, spokeswomanfor development firm Main Street

 Plans for a new CVS at 201 N.Greensboro St., which have met resis-tance from residents and town officials,have been delayed once again.But this time it was CVS that askedfor the delay.The Carrboro Board of Aldermen voted Tuesday night to indefinitely post-pone the April 17 public hearing, whenthey were scheduled to make a finaldecision on the rezoning. According to town documents, theplanning board recommended that the board deny the current request.Town planners cited the lack of pedestrian access and poor integration with downtown development as reasonsto deny the rezoning.In response to that feedback, CVSasked for more time to revise its conceptplan, Alderman Dan Coleman said.“Depending on the nature of theirrevisions, they may require an additionalround of reviews from the planning oradvisory board,” he said.Coleman said CVS made the decisionto delay the public hearing after present-ing three different conceptual plans tothe planning advisory boards. Alderwoman Lydia Lavelle saidCVS also asked for the delay to betterrespond to neighborhood feedback.“Based on feedback from the com-munity and the planning and transpor-tation advisory boards, they said they  wanted to reconsider the plans they presented,” she said.Leigh Polzella, the developer for theproject, said there is no definitive timeframe that CVS will need to considerrevisions to their concept plan.“Following the comments made dur-ing the March 1 planning board publichearing and the March 15 planning board working session, we concludedthat more time was needed for planevaluation,” she said in an email.Polzella said CVS plans to review cur-rent comments and staff reviews, and toreceive the planning board’s final rec-ommendations before proceeding withtheir plan evaluation.Polzella said she couldn’t expand on what revisions CVS is considering.“It is premature to discuss the chang-es we are working on,” she said.Lavelle said whether CVS decidesto submit another rezoning request, a public hearing would be rescheduledonce CVS was ready to present new plans.“No matter what happens, they aregoing to have a public hearing,” she said. Approval for rezoning will requirea three-fourths majority vote from theBoard of Aldermen after residents filed a petition earlier this month.Though many have opposed theproperty and say it would destroy thetown’s character, Carrboro residentLynn Hayes said she looks forwardto hearing the town’s decision on the
