 When North Carolina’s baseball team took the field for its opening game of the NCAA regionals, it was business as usual.The No. 1 seed in the Chapel Hill Regional,the Tar Heels took care of No. 4 seed in theregional, Cornell, 7-4 and advanced on theirusual track on the winner’s bracket.But a feisty No.3 seeded St. John’s teamcoming off a blowout victory against No. 2seed East Carolina was waiting, and the RedStorm would be the team to deliver the fin-ishing blow to UNC’s season Sunday night.But Saturday, St. John’s struck first, scor-ing off catcher Danny Bethea’s ground out inthe second inning. After scoring one more inthe third inning, the Red Storm quieted untilthe final inning.Shell McCain hit a two-run homer in thesixth inning to give UNC a 3-2 lead. ParksJordan added another run for the Tar Heels with an RBI double in the top of the ninth,giving UNC a 4-2 lead going into the lastthree outs. Without hesitation, UNC coach Mike Foxput All-American closer Michael Morin onthe mound to finish the game. After giving up hits to the first two bat-ters, Morin struck out Zach Lauricella. Morinthen faced Bethea. After throwing one strike,Morin left a fastball up in the zone andBethea connected. The ball sailed over theleft field wall and brought all three runnershome. With the walk-off home run, Bethea 
St. John’s held the momentumduring UNC’s season-endingregional game in Chapel Hill.

The North Carolina baseball team was hosting a regional for the sixthtime in seven years, but 2012 marks thefirst time in that stretch that a hostingTar Heel team failed to advance to theSuper Regional. All season long, the Tar Heels’ pitch-ing depth was touted as among the best in the country. The staff as a wholeposted the fourth best ERA in thenation and boasted two All-Americans.But the Red Storm is red hot rightnow — especially at the plate.“We had that storybook ending yester-day and I think that took a little wind outof their sails,” St. John’s head coach EdBlankmeyer said after the game Sunday.“Sometimes it’s destiny. I thought weplayed our ‘A’ game, I thought we wereplaying our best baseball coming in tothis and I thought (UNC coach) Mike(Fox)’s club wasn’t at their best.” After dropping the regular seasonending series against Seton Hall, St.John’s tore through the Big East tour-nament and took their second Big Eastcrown in three seasons.Continuing that momentum, inthree games in the Chapel Hill regionalSt. John’s racked up 38 hits.Take Danny Bethea’s walk-off homerun Saturday night for example.“They swung it well … we’re runningfreshman after freshman out there andthey haven’t been in this situation forus,” Fox said. “Did they not quite makethe pitch we wanted to? Yeah, occasion-ally, but you have give St. John’s credit.“They swung it well and got the big hits when they needed to and thatseparates the regional champions fromeveryone else.”In contrast, the Tar Heels weren’tswinging the bats that well and certain-ly not when they needed it the most.Much of the Tar Heels’ offensivestruggles can be attributed to the strongshowing from St. John’s pitching staff. What turned out to be the clinchinggame was just St. John’s third game of the regional, while it was UNC’s fourth. As a result the Tar Heels had already used each of their usual weekend start-ers — Kent Emanuel, Benton Moss andHobbs Johnson.So Sunday night Fox started ShaneTaylor who had started just threegames this season before starting in anelimination game at the regional.Matt Carasiti who started Sunday’sgame is a junior with 13 starts already 
Colleges expand lobbyingpresence in Washington

Editor-in-Chief 
UNC joined a select group of the nation’s colleges and universi-ties in a commitment to financialaid transparency this week.Chancellor Holden Thorprepresented UNC Tuesday atthe White House, where VicePresident Joe Biden and othermembers of the Obama admin-istration discussed how highereducation institutions can pro- vide students with clear andconsistent information about thefinancial commitment associated with student loans.Thorp said it was not a bigdeal for UNC to sign on to theplan because it already providesstudents with comprehensivefinancial aid information.“We want to make sure stu-dents get the best informationthey can and that they under-stand it,” Thorp said.To meet the federal govern-ment’s new financial aid recom-mendations, UNC will add esti-mated monthly payments on stu-dent loans and the rate at whichgraduates repay their studentloans — without defaulting — inits financial aid award letters. According to a White Housepress release, more college stu-dents than ever are dependingon loans to pay for college. Two-thirds of bachelor’s degree recipi-ents rack up an average $26,000in student loan debt.Thorp said a major part of Tuesday’s discussion focusedon how universities can providestudents with financial aid infor-mation clearly but without over- whelming them.

The system spent $210,000 in1999, when it opened its permanentfederal relations office in Washington.Duke spent $442,165 on lobbying in2011 — more than a twofold increasesince 2001.Duke’s new office, known as Dukein Washington, doubles as an office forlobbyists and an academic building where research takes place and coursesare taught.“We had a lot programs going on and wanted to consolidate resources,” saidChris Simmons, associate vice presi-dent of federal relations at Duke.Simmons said the school’s lob- byists used to sublet office space in Washington but the new office willenhance Duke’s visibility on policy issues.He said he does not expect the costof lobbying to increase as a result of thenew office.“We’re going to have a big impact because of the physical presence,” hesaid.UNC-system Vice President forFederal Relations Kimrey Rhinehardtsaid UNC has maintained a perma-nent presence in Washington since

The Tar Heels ran into astreaking St. John’s teamthat was tough at the plate.
 
NOTED.
 A bear in Canada chowed down onthe body of a convicted murderer last week.The partially-eaten body of Rory Nelson Wagner was discovered by authorities last Wednesday. Apparently, Wagner was already dead when the bear broke into his car anddragged his body out. Wagner had been miss-ing from his halfway house since May 23.
QUOTED.
“CDC does not know of a virus orcondition that would reanimate the dead — orone that would present zombie-like symp-toms.” — Centers for Disease Control andPrevention agency’s spokesman David Daigleto the Huffington Post, in light of the recentoccurrences of cannibalism in the country.However, some people remain unconvinced.
T
rafc’s never been this entertaining. Police in Kittanning, Pa., say a bull and a cow caused a major trafc jam last Friday. Why? Thecows were having sex.That’s right. Two amorous bovines blocked trafc near an inter-section of Routes 28 and 85 in Rayburn Township, Pa. The Department of  Agriculture managed to contain the problem around 9:15 a.m. after herdingthe cow and bull into a trailer. Apparently, that took awhile. “We kept trying to shoo them off the highway, but that just got the bull mad and it started to escalate,” Trooper John Corna said. The two love cows are currently being held at a nearby farm until theirowner is identied.

Howard and Lillian LeeScholars Charter School will not be ready to open for the 2012-13school year.But the school’s board of direc-tors is already in the process of reapplying for a new charter.The school, which partners with for-profit managementcompany National Heritage Academies, was opposed by school officials and thelocal branch of the National Association for the Advancementof Colored People.School supporters hope it willserve minorities and reduce theachievement gap.The North Carolina StateBoard of Education approved theschool’s charter earlier this year,under the condition that it would be ready to open for the 2012-13school year. A major setback the schoolfaced was locating a temporary space to house the school in.Both applications requirethe school building to take upat least 45,000 square feet. Theschool must also have a soccerfield, a 165-space parking lotand a location inside a residen-tial area.Because the school won’t reach
The school’s projectedopening is delayed forat least a year.
its July 1 deadline, it must gothrough the entire applicationprocess again for the 2013-14school year.“We thought that the charters would be issued a little bit earlierthan they were,” said Annie DorisJackson, a member of the school’s board of directors.Jackson said the board of directors had not anticipated how long it would take to find tempo-rary property to house the schoolon, while waiting for their perma-nent location to be ready.Joel Medley, director of thestate office of charter schools, saidif the charter school is approved by an advisory council, it will nextgo to an interview process.Medley said the advisory coun-cil will most likely reconvene onJune 20 to discuss which of the54 charter applicants will returnfor an interview.Medley said the council’s priorapproval of the charter school didnot necessarily mean they wouldapprove it again.“They don’t really consider what did or did not happen in thepast,” he said.The school expects to enrollabout 480 students in its first year. About 20 families so farhave shown interest in attendingthe charter school, Jackson said.She said they had kept intouch with the families in casethe school was not ready to openfor the upcoming school yearso they could make alternativeplans.Dottie Heath, a consultantat the state office of charterschools, said it is fairly typi-cal for a charter school to havetrouble getting off the ground inits initial year.“It is a difficult situation tofind property, to find land, to findplace,” she said.But school officials hope tohave a new site ready once thenew application is approved.Joe DiBenedetto, spokes-man for National Heritage Academies, said the company has reached an agreement topurchase seven acres of landon the eastern tract of theClaremont South developmenton Homestead Road in Carrborofor the school.DiBenedetto said work onthe Claremont site will beginonce the town of Carrboroapproves the modified develop-ment plan and a new charter isreceived from the state Board of Education.

The UNC School of Medicine will join more than 60 institu-tions nationwide in offering dual-degree programs.Many experts say the program— which allows medical studentsto earn both their doctor of medi-cine and a Master of Business Administration — teaches skillsthat will make graduates of theprogram more competitive.“If they want to run a hos-pital or a medical group or become surgeon general, the world is their oyster,” saidMaria Chandler, president forthe Association of M.D./MBA Programs.Chandler said the number of  joint degree programs has sig-nificantly increased in the pastdecade. She said 65 out of the130 medical schools nationwidehave the program now.Buck Goldstein, an entrepre-neurship professor at UNC, saidthe program will provide gradu-ates with opportunities in thehealth care industry.“There will be many innova-tive opportunities in medicine,Goldstein said.“There is no field where there will there will be more rapidchange,” he said.Cam Patterson, associate deanfor medical entrepreneurshipat UNC, said the popularity of the program stems from a grow-ing demand for physicians whounderstand the market.“Clearly more institutions areproviding the dual degree oppor-tunity,” he said. “There are many physicians that are poorly pre-pared for business aspects for the world of medicine.“Our goal is to tap into a grow-ing need for this area,” Pattersonsaid.Patterson said as many asone-third of students in the UNCSchool of Medicine have inquiredabout the program, but the pro-gram is very selective.He said only five students have been admitted to the joint degreeprogram, and eight to 10 stu-dents will be admitted annually  beginning in 2013. While Chandler said programs vary by school, she said it usu-ally takes five years to earn bothdegrees. This is one year lessthan the total six it would take tocomplete medical and businessschool programs.Patterson said UNC’s program will require students to takecourses at the School of Medicinefor three and a half years andat the Kenan-Flager BusinessSchool for a year and a half.Chandler said students of dual-degree programs at otheruniversities have been satisfiedand have been promoted fasterthan graduates with just anM.D.Goldstein said the program is best suited for people who wantto change the field of healthcare.“Entrepreneurship is not aboutgetting a job,” Goldstein said. “Itis about creating jobs.”

 Allen Glazner may never meet the person whose lifehis blood will save.But Glazner, chairman of the geology department atUNC, said he could not miss the chance to give blood.He has type O negative.“Someday you may need it, you never know, so it’s a good thing to do,” he said. “People really need it.”The Carolina Blood Drive is set up at the Dean E.Smith Center by University staff every summer to com-pensate for a national drop in blood donations duringsummer months. An estimated 97 percent of the population will betouched by the need for blood at some point in theirlives, said Katrina Coble, chair of the Carolina BloodDrive committee.“The blood collected will help ensure that when thoseproducts are needed, they will be available,” she said.The goal for this year’s drive was 1,000 units of  blood, but organizers collected only 784 units Tuesday.One unit of blood can help up to three patients.Part of the reason for this shortage may be theneed to improve the drive’s advertising strategies,said Caroline Allison, an American Red Cross donorrecruitment representative for the drive.Blood drive organizers are attempting to reachout to a wider demographic, including new faculty members and summer school students who may not be aware of the annual drive, in order to attract moredonors.Organizers have set up a website, a Facebook pageand a Twitter account in recent years to attract moredonations.“We’re really trying to plug into social media,” Allisonsaid. “We’re still trying to reach out to younger donorsthat way, and we’re really trying to increase our visibility.Lynn Eades, who runs the blood drive’s website, saidshe has seen the use of social media has increased thenumber of potential donors reached through advertising.“I think we need to do some more advertising, espe-cially if we’re going to do this drive,” she said.Typically the drive’s attendees consist of faculty members and staff at UNC, but Coble said organiz-ers would love to see more summer school studentsinvolved.“It actually doesn’t take as much time as studentsmight think,” Coble said. “If the students would come, we’d love to have them here.Coble said she would like to thank all of the donors who gave blood Tuesday.Students can drive to the Smith Center and park for free on the day of blood drive. It typically takes between an hour and an hour and a half to donate.“An hour and half to save people’s lives is a smallexchange,” Allison said.Julia Cheek, a team supervisor for the AmericanRed Cross for 23 years, said volunteers recently gota chance to see the results of their hard work whena little girl in remission for leukemia came to a staff meeting to talk to them.“She got blood from blood we’ d been given,” Cheek said. “It’s great to see what that blood is doing, how it’s working for people that really need it.Cheek said the blood drives can also be fun.“You get to meet interesting people,” she said.“Today I met 3 or 4 football players and the coach when they came to give blood, which was exciting.

Students taking summerschool classes should pay their tuition — and save theirreceipts.UNC alumnus Pete Hintonreceived a notice in August thatthe University had taken almost$90 from his state tax return fortwo summer school classes hetook in 1972. Hinton graduatedfrom UNC in 1974. About 600 alumni havereceived notifications this fis-cal year according to JanetKelly-Scholle, director of finance communication andtraining for UNC. She wrotein an email that this is a lasteffort for the University andstate to collect outstandingdebt.The Department of Revenuecharged Hinton an additional$5 administrative fee.Hinton said he was surprisedand upset with the University.“I couldn’t imagine thatit was true that I owed them

money,” Hinton said.“The only way I could defendagainst this charge is to presentthem with the receipt for a classthat I took 40 years ago.”The Setoff Debt Collection Act makes it legal for theUniversity to recoup what it saidHinton owed through his taxreturn.The period of time during which creditors can legally col-lect outstanding debts does notapply to the University underthe act.Kelly-Scholle said that mostalumni and students pay debtcharges rather than appealing.In a letter, the University gaveHinton 30 days to request a hearing to challenge the charge.Hinton did not have a receiptfor the classes and requested a hearing, which was held Oct.11. Hinton said a hearing officerfrom University Counsel decid-ed to reimburse Hinton.Hinton said Gary Maynard,the assistant University cashier,represented UNC at Hinton’sappeal. Maynard refused tocomment on the case.The Daily Tar Heel submit-ted a public records request fordocuments related to Hinton’shearing to University spokes-man Mike McFarland.McFarland said the docu-ments are unlikely to be con-sidered public record basedon the Federal EducationalRights and Privacy Act, whichprotects students’ educationalrecords.Hinton said the University’sprocedure of collecting out-standing debts will alienatedonors.He said he has talked withmore than 30 UNC alumni who told him they will nolonger donate money to theUniversity.“I’ll never be so cuckoo now that I leave them any money,”he said. “It’s going to lose theUniversity a lot of money.”
