Gender Housekeepers allege abuse, ask neutral management to be true to reform charge revs up
Housekeepers will file a grievance today citing verbal harassment.
By Caroline Leland
unC may join 100 schools that offer gender-neutral housing.
By Amy Tsai
The struggle between the University’s lowest paid employees and their managers has existed for decades. And even as UNC implements
sweeping housekeeping reforms, suggested last year by an outside consultant’s report, flare-ups of allegations persist. A group of housekeepers is planning to file a grievance today citing verbal harassment by a zone manager and a crew leader to be named in the grievance, said Zaina Alsous, a member of the UNC club Student Action with Workers. Members of the club, which has been an advocate for University housekeepers for several years,
have been meeting with housekeepers during the past few months, said Alsous, who is also a columnist for The Daily Tar Heel. She said several housekeepers who work the 11 p.m. to 7 a.m. shift contacted the student group about problems with their zone manager and crew leader. Neither the zone manager nor the crew leader could be reached by phone or email Tuesday.
steps to reform
The housekeeping department has faced a leadership void and criticisms of mismanagement.

UNC-CH students spent the night in the Campus Y Tuesday in support of gender-neutral housing — a policy that almost 100 colleges nationwide have already implemented. And the University’s gender-neutral housing coalition and other students will assemble at the Board of Trustees meeting today to urge board members to support the policy. Gender-neutral housing would allow students of the opposite gender to live together in campus residence halls, a move that advocates say would aid the safety of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer students. The coalition, Student Power and the Campus Y hosted Tuesday night’s sleep-in. Terri Phoenix, director of the LGBTQ Center, and Kevin Claybren, student coordinator of the coalition, will join student supporters in presenting the board with a gender-neutral housing proposal — which was rejected by Chancellor Holden Thorp in February. The UNC-system Association of Student Governments is one of 53 student organizations that has expressed support for the coalition, Claybren said. “We are showing them all of our hard

Libertarians remain optimistic
libertarians look to promote policies in next n.C. elections.
By Jeff Kagan
The state’s Libertarian Party came away from the 2012 election without any huge gains on paper — but politicians from the two dominant parties say libertarians nonetheless won an opportunity to influence policy. The U.S. electoral system poses significant barriers to third parties seeking representation on ballots. Libertarian gubernatorial candidate Barbara Howe received slightly barbara Howe, more than 2 percent of a libertarian, the vote, barely crossing received more than the threshold of necessary 2 percent of the votes to allow the party to vote in this year’s remain on the ballot for gubernatorial race. the next four years. Republican Pat McCrory won the race with 55 percent of the vote, compared to 43 percent for Democrat Walter Dalton, according to unofficial results. Howe said she still has hope for the party’s future because of growing support

In a UNC athlete’s equipment bag, one might expect to find a pair of cleats, a change of clothes and some deodorant. But a broom, quaffles and bludgers? For sophomore Max Miceli, a player on UNC’s Quidditch team, it’s nothing out of the ordinary. While Quidditch — the real world, grounded adaptation of the featured sport in J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series — does appeal to “Harry Potter geeks,” Miceli said, it’s actually a full contact sport. “There are people who love Harry Potter and people who love sports in general,” said Miceli, who is also a sports writer for The Daily Tar Heel. “I’m one of those people who just loves sports.” Miceli, who started playing the sport his freshman year, will be competing in the Quidditch World Cup in April 2013 with Quidditch Club Carolinas, a team composed of students from other North Carolina schools. His team played together for the first time during the first weekend of November when they met to compete in the Mid-Atlantic Regional Championship. In an unexpected feat, the team qualified along with seven other teams from the region for the Quidditch World Cup, which will be held in Kissimmee, Fla. “Being on a team that qualified means a lot for the state of Quidditch in North Carolina and how it’s growing,” Miceli said. Although the UNC team was not eligible to compete in the qualifying tournament this year, players said they have high hopes for future competitions, including their match against N.C. State University this weekend. Ed Bartels, a junior on the team, said UNC’s Quidditch team is becoming a lot more serious than it’s been in past years

— more organized and, now, an official student organization. “The immediate conception would be a bunch of nerdy people, which is not really what you get from our practice — we’re actually pretty athletic.” “We do it for fun, but we also want to establish ourselves as a legitimate sport.” While the team has been recognized as an official student organization at UNC, it has yet to become a club sport. Jason Halsey, director of club sports, said groups have to be an official student organization for at least a year before appealing for club sport status to the UNC Sport Clubs Executive Board. Alex Drose, president of the UNC Quidditch club, said the team gets along very well. “A lot of us know each other from outside of Quidditch, or we have become better friends through the sport,” she said. “We have a lot of team spirit.” The Quidditch craze extends beyond the University — into the Duke-UNC rivalry. Jeff Zhang, president of Duke University’s Quidditch team, said his team spends time together on and off the field to ensure that they get along. “About half of our team is Harry Potter obsessed — they can remember every detail,” Zhang said. “The other half of the team, which I’m ashamed to say includes myself, really enjoy it for the sport and the people” Miceli said the UNC Quidditch team is so tight knit that it resembles a family. “We’re the Quidditch kids — and we wouldn’t trade that for the world,” he said.

1 SNITCH The release of the snitch starts the game. The snitch is a tennis ball inside a sock tucked into the waistband of a player called the snitch runner. He can leave the eld and play pranks on other players to avoid getting caught. Once he is caught, the game is over. 1 QUAFFLE A volleyball is used to score goals by throwing or kicking it into the hoops. The keepers and chasers are the only ones allowed to use this ball. Chasers can use a qua e to block incoming bludgers. 2 BLUDGERS These balls are used by beaters to set back other players. When a player is hit with a bludger, he must drop any ball he is holding, return to his side and touch one of his goalposts before re-entering play.

IFs are no longer just ridiculous and hilarious graphics you try not to laugh at in the middle of lecture classes. “GIF” is the Oxford American Dictionary’s word of the year. Because America apparently doesn’t understand that GIF is an abbreviation of already existing words. Graphics Interchange Format pictures were first released in 1987, but it took 25 years for them to become the comedic leader in Internet jokes. Actual words didn’t do so hot. YOLO, or “You only live once,” was America’s number two, and the Brits chose “omnishambles.” Fortunately for the next generation, which is already going to be a grammatical mess, GIF will not necessarily be added to the dictionary.

Development sparks lawsuit

Chapel Hill seeks new ideas for downtown window art
The town of Chapel Hill’s Public and Cultural Arts Office is looking for new project proposals for its “Windows on Chapel Hill” downtown art project. Four window locations have been chosen for the spring project: the Yates Motor Company at 419 W. Franklin St., Walgreens glass case at 108 E. Franklin St., The Franklin Hotel at 311 W. Franklin St. and Vimala’s Curryblossom Cafe at 431 W. Franklin St. Artists and artist teams must be at least 18 years old. The winners will receive $500 to build their art project. Applications are due by 5 p.m. on Dec. 7. More information is available on the Chapel Hill Downtown Partnership’s website at www.downtownchapelhill.com.
The Chapel Hill Town Council’s Sept. 24 approval of the Charterwood development is causing a ruckus among residents — and now a lawsuit. On Oct. 23, several Chapel Hill residents filed a petition against the town of Chapel Hill and William Christian and Associates, the project’s developer. The petition calls for the Superior Court of Orange County to review the town’s decision. Robin Currin, the residents’ attorney, said they believe the approval of the special use permit and zoning atlas amendment for Charterwood is unlawful, citing concerns about the project’s impact on neighbors. “What they’ve asked for is a rever-
sal, for the court to consider the approval invalid,” she said. Currin said once she receives the town’s records on the Charterwood approval, the residents will seek a court date and present the case. The 15.7-acre development will be off Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard near Weaver Dairy Road — near residential homes — and will include office, retail and residential space. Residents involved in the lawsuit said they could not comment, but according to the lawsuit, they believe Charterwood will be an inconvenience. Residents are worried about increased traffic, storm water runoff, smoke, pollution and loss of privacy. They believe Charterwood will lead to “loss of enjoyment,” the lawsuit states. Bill Christian, the developer, also couldn’t comment due to the lawsuit. The Charterwood development has been in the works since 2007. The council voted on the development four times, finally leading to a
5-4 approval at the Sept. 24 meeting. Council member Gene Pease said he voted for the development because the proposal matched all criteria for the site. But Pease said he would not have voted for it when the concept first came to the council five years ago. “The development over the years in the process lowered the density and lowered the height of the building and moved most of the development away from the neighborhood,” he said. Pease also said he has never seen a lawsuit where residents challenged a development in Chapel Hill before. Council member Lee Storrow voted against granting a special-use permit to Charterwood. “I thought it was inconsistent with the guidelines set for that piece of property and the Northern Area Task Force,” he said. According to the Chapel Hill Northern Area Task Force report, the task force aims to “promote orderly development and redevelop-

Yoe Moo spent about 20 years in refugee camps in Thailand, but found a new home in the United States four years ago. Soon, the UNC housekeeper’s home will become a house, courtesy of the Kenan-Flagler Business School and Habitat for Humanity of Orange County. Since 2005, the business school has partnered with Habitat for Humanity to provide homes for a low-income families in the county. This year, it is using the California-based company, Hatch My House, to raise money for a new house for the Moo family. This is the first time Hatch My House — which is often used as an alternative to wedding registries — has been used as a fundraiser. Santhia Muthusamy, president of the Student Habitat Committee at Kenan-Flagler, said construction on the house began in August and is expected to be completed by December. Moo works at the Smith Center as a housekeeper and lives in an apartment in Carrboro with his wife and three sons.
“For our family, I am very happy to get a Habitat home,” Moo said. He said when he and his wife lived in Burma, political unrest led them to flee to refugee camps in Thailand. “We needed to stay in the camps,” Moo said. “If we went outside to find a job, the police would catch us.” Moo wanted his family to have the freedom they didn’t have in the refugee camps, so they came to the United States. “When we arrived here, we could go anywhere,” Moo said. “We don’t need to stay in a camp.” Moo said his sons are excited to have their own rooms in their new home, and they are happy to have the students from the business school helping to build their house. Muthusamy said they hope to raise $50,000 for the house. She said business school students arrange fundraisers and volunteer at the construction site. This year, people outside of the business school can also contribute through Hatch My House. Rieve MacEwen, the CEO of Hatch My House, said the site allows family members and

friends to purchase part of a virtual house as a gift, helping the newlyweds raise money for their real home. “You see the image coming together like a puzzle,” MacEwen said. About 800 couples have used Hatch My House since its December 2009 launch, he said. MacEwen said he hopes the website will help Kenan-Flagler meet its fundraising goal of $50,000 — which will pay for parts of the house, including windows and roofing. And Moo said he can’t wait for the house to be completed. “I am so very happy they’re building my house,” Moo said. “My house is nearly finished, and I know they worked hard.” Contact the desk editor at firstname.lastname@example.org.
University discusses future of admissions policy
Unc’s policy might have to change per a pending supreme court decision.
By Andy Willard
With a looming U.S. Supreme Court decision that could make UNC’s admissions policy illegal, the University is scrambling to find a solution that would maintain its diversity within the law. In Fisher v. University of TexasAustin, UT-Austin is being sued for its race-based affirmative action practices in admission. If the court rules in favor of Abigail Fisher, who claims she was not admitted to UT-Austin because of her race, affirmative action programs across the nation would be ruled unconstitutional. Stephen Farmer, UNC’s vice provost for enrollment and under-
graduate admissions, said the University has used race as a factor since 2003 in accordance with the Grutter v. Bollinger decision, which ruled that race can be a factor in admissions decisions. In a meeting Tuesday, the Advisory Committee on Undergraduate Admissions discussed options UNC would have if the court favors Fisher. “The court will rule in June, and we are trying to be ready for whatever the ruling will be,” Farmer said. He said that UNC has looked into race-neutral alternatives before. Jen Kretchmar, senior assistant director of undergraduate admissions, said research was conducted in the 2006-07 school year on using socioeconomic status instead of race as a means to achieve diversity. Kretchmar said this plan just didn’t work. Farmer said this summer, the University looked into following the 10 percent model that is popular

in some other schools, including UT-Austin. With this plan, UNC would automatically accept all in-state students that are in the top 10 percent of their high school class. According to the results, diversity would be maintained, but it would come at the expense of academic merit. “You don’t want to sacrifice one for the other,” Kretchmar said. With no plan yet in place, Bobbi Owen, senior associate dean for undergraduate education, tasked the committee with creating new proposals.
of her race. The U.S. Supreme Court heard the oral arguments in October and is expected to hand down its decision in June.
“We will bring this back with some action items in the spring,” she said. In the meantime, Farmer vowed to continue working to maintain diversity at UNC. “This University has been on record time and time again that it is our job to get a racially diverse student population, and we don’t intend to stop doing that — even if the law should change,” he said.

Student Body President Will Leimenstoll said he will veto the bill that Student Congress passed Tuesday to eliminate the student body vice president’s annual stipend. The bill passed 22-9, with four members abstaining, after heated debate among members of Student Congress. “I will without a doubt be vetoing this bill,” Leimenstoll said in an interview after the decision. “Quite frankly, I don’t think I’ve been so disappointed in the people I work with every day.” Leimenstoll has 10 school days after the vote to issue the veto, according to the Student Code, but Student Congress can also override the student body president’s veto with a two-thirds majority vote. The bill mandates a repeal of the student body vice president’s annual $2,400 stipend, which will be used instead to allocate funds to student organizations. Members of the student government executive branch have said that if the stipend were eliminated, which is 0.62 percent of Student Congress’ allocations, the position will be less accessible to students who need an income to support themselves through college. Brittany Best, finance committee chairwoman, said it is her duty to efficiently allocate student fees and best represent her constituents. “This is the first step in maximizing the output,” Best said. Leimenstoll, who receives financial aid and has maintained a job for most of his time at UNC, said he would not have run for office without the promise of a stipend. “Now I don’t think the student body president can be someone who doesn’t have financial security,” Leimenstoll said. Travis Crayton, chairman of the rules and judiciary committee and sponsor of the bill, said he is excited to have such a broad and diverse coalition support the equality of student organizations throughout campus. Crayton argued that the position of student body vice president should not be considered any more important than similar leadership positions in student organizations. “I believe that every student’s decisions and service should be respected equally and are no different than our peers in any other organization. We should be treated equally with our money we pay each semester to finance committee to allocate in a fair way,” he said. If upheld, the bill will take effect in April 2013, so current Student Body Vice President Rachel Myrick will not be affected by the decision. District 7 Representative Austin Gilmore, who also serves as president of the UNC Young Democrats, said that Student Congress acted a bit rashly by passing the bill. “I don’t think this has done anything productive to help relations between Student Congress and the executive branch,” he said.

The Daily Tar Heel
Q&A with American Indian Studies professor
November is Native American Heritage Month, and to examine its importance, The Daily Tar Heel staff writer Hunter Toro sat down with Christopher Teuton, an associate professor of American Studies and Cherokee Nation member. Teuton recently released a book along with four elders of the nation titled “Cherokee Stories of the Turtle Island Liars’ Club,” a collection of stories, conversations and teachings about the role of stories within Cherokee culture.

Orange County raises awareness of adoption
By Marissa Bane
Daily Tar Heel: How important is American Indian Studies to North Carolina and UNC? Christopher Teuton: In 2012, the census listed over 122,000 Native American people in the state of North Carolina. The population of the Native American people is large, and Native American studies is very important to serve that population, but also to educate the population of North Carolina concerning the history, the culture, the art and the continued vibrancy of Native American issues today.
American student experience like?
Brian Kohout is learning what really matters in life. Since October 2011, Kohout and his wife have been trying to adopt a little girl from Ethiopia — and any week now, they will bring her home. “I started off thinking that I was blessing a young orphan,” said Kohout, a high school teacher in Raleigh. “But in the end, she has blessed us so much more.” November is National Adoption Month — and the need for education about foster care and adoption is an important issue, said Dillard Spring, spokeswoman for the Children’s Home Society of North Carolina. “The greatest need currently is for children to be placed into permanent homes instead of temporary ones,” she said. Karen Lewis, foster care and adoptions supervisor for the Orange County Department of Social Services, said more than 110 children are in Orange County’s foster care system. Lewis said the department hosts community orientations to educate people about foster
care. But she said the main focus is reuniting foster children with their birth families. “Children who can’t be placed in foster homes are placed with relatives,” Lewis said. “We are always looking for more foster care parents.” Other organizations, like KidsPeace, work with local foster children with behavioral and mental health needs. Anna Bagnulo, family consultant for KidsPeace, said the group offers intensive alternative family treatment to help children. She said foster children with these problems benefit from organizations like KidsPeace, since they can be more likely to drop out of school. “The biggest need for foster kids in Orange County is the need for committed adults and more natural support,” Bagnulo said. “You can be a committed adult without adopting the child.” KidsPeace also offers transitional services for teens aging out of foster care and after-school programs for younger foster children. Paul Brinich, a psychotherapist in Chapel Hill who special-
izes in adoption, said adoption is much different today than it was 30 years ago. “Adoptions that take place now are normally due to abuse or neglect, or the kids are being adopted internationally,” he said. Brinich said he thinks adopted children face the same problems that nonadopted children face, specifically when it comes to development and behavior. Susan Brown, executive director of Triangle Adoption Services, said people from all walks of life can adopt. “A lot of families approach adoption with anxiety and think they aren’t perfect enough or that adoption is unattainable,” she said. Brown said families with poor finances can sometimes obtain tax credits or federal grants to adopt. She has matched hundreds of children with permanent families, and she said she finds her job enriching and important. “There is not just one definition of family,” Brown said.

dth/molly cogburn Christopher Teuton, an associate professor of American Studies at UNC, presents his collection of Cherokee stories.
DTH: How has Native American culture changed in recent years? CT: One of the first things I teach my classes is to talk about Native American peoples as a contemporary people — as a people just like any other culture, native culture, that has changed through time. Oftentimes within the mainstream media and popular culture, we get depictions of Native American people as people of the past — people that stopped evolving in the late 19th century — and that’s just not correct. Native American people are people who hold on to their traditions and their belief systems and their storytelling traditions and those things that define them as a people. But they are also people of the present. They are people who are deeply involved in the economies and technologies of today and of American culture as well.
DTH: What challenges do Native Americans face in modern times? CT: One of the continuing challenges of today is for Native American nations to assert their own self-control of their internal affairs, to develop their own economies, to govern themselves as their own peoples, and that is a continuing challenge that comes from the past and is still a part of today. DTH: How do you encourage your students to understand Native American culture? CT: I ask them to first of all set aside their assumptions, and to approach the subject matter with an open mind and to listen. I think that’s one of the most important things you can do as we try to understand another culture, another people, is to try to understand the world from their perspective.

DTH: What is the Native
CT: From my experience as a Native American student, a first generation college student, when I went to college, it was quite an alienating experience. I was away from my home, my people, and I was in different circumstances that I hadn’t been familiar with. It takes some adjustment. There are some great resources here for students on campus. Among those are tremendous faculty within the American Indian Studies curriculum, and an American Indian center on campus, which is really important to building the networks between students, faculty and the larger Native American communities of North Carolina.

Tar Heels face early season foe in Final Four
By Brooke Pryor
Assistant Sports Editor
The No. 1 North Carolina field hockey team (22-1) will travel to the Final Four this weekend in hopes of capturing a national title that has eluded them the last two years. But before they can worry about the possibility of playing on Sunday, the Tar Heels will first have to face the team that is responsible for the only blemish on their record — Syracuse. “It’s a completely different team, so there’s no fear in this group,” coach Karen Shelton said. “But they’re not thinking about last year, they’re thinking about Friday and Syracuse.” Overcoming the No. 5 Orange (19-2) will be no easy
task, but the Tar Heels have added a few weapons to their arsenal since their 1-0 overtime loss in the third game of the season. After sitting out for the first six games to resolve NCAA eligibility issues, sophomore forward Charlotte Craddock took to the field and has been instrumental in UNC’s dynamic offense. “It helps getting a girl like (Craddock) because she can just take it herself sometimes and end the game right there,” senior midfielder Kelsey Kolojejchick said. Craddock leads the team in goals with 22 and has transformed the traditionally defensively strong team into a dangerous offensive threat. The Tar Heels have scored 106 goals this season, eclips-
ing the record set by the 2007 national championship team. “The last couple of years, we’ve been a much stronger defensive team and this year, we’re a much stronger offensive team,” Shelton said. In addition to Craddock’s contributions, UNC’s freshmen have also matured at an exponential rate throughout the season. Though quiet in the first half of the season, freshman Emily Wold has made a name for herself as ACC Freshman of the Year. “Emily Wold, she didn’t play particularly well in that first Syracuse game,” Shelton said. “It was her third college game. She’s grown tremendously in the course of the season.” With all of these pieces
final four quick facts
UNC will take on Syracuse Friday for the right to play in the national championship Sunday. The Final Four is hosted by Old Dominion in Norfolk, Va., and UNC will play the first game on Friday at 2 p.m. This is UNC’s fourth straight trip to the Final Four. The Tar Heels have lost in the national championship the last two seasons. UNC lost to Syracuse 1-0 in overtime earlier this season.
in place, the stage is set for North Carolina to embark on its quest to recapture the NCAA title. But, as is Shelton’s refrain, the next game is always the most important. Before the Tar Heels can start to dream about another run at a title game, they will have to take care of a Syracuse team that has obvi-
ously given them trouble in the past. “It just seals the deal — this is all you train for,” Kolojejchick said. “When you’re this close, that’s all you can do. I don’t want to fall short again, so this is all or nothing for me.” Contact the desk editor at email@example.com.

Town restaurants donate proceeds to ﬁght hunger
By Sam Fletcher
The Chapel Hill restaurant community rallied together Tuesday to combat hunger. Tuesday was the 24th annual RSVVP Day, or “Restaurants Sharing 10 Percent” — the ‘V’s are Roman numerals — benefiting the Inter-Faith Council for Social Service. A total of 106 restaurants in Chapel Hill donated 10 percent of the day’s profits to the council.
The money raised will go towards the council’s FoodFirst programs, which include a community kitchen and food pantry which distributed about 18,000 grocery bags of food last year. Restaurants including Ye Olde Waffle Shoppe, Buns Burgers and Fries, and Mediterranean Deli participated this year. Jon Dorward, associate director of the council, emphasized the importance of community support for fundraising.
“There are an awful lot of the restaurants in Chapel Hill that are locally owned and operated,” he said. “They care about giving back to their community.” Mediterranean Deli owner Jamil Kadoura, who has participated in this event for all 24 years, said the fundraiser’s strength is rooted in its impact on the community. “This particular program is special to me because we are in touch with it, we see it,” he said. Dorward said that while
this is the council’s largest fundraiser of the year, the restaurants also support the council in other ways throughout the year. “A lot of the restaurants, if they have leftover food, they will donate it back to us,” he said. RSVVP has grown in recent years and raised a little more than $20,000 last year. While Dorward is hoping the council will raise a similar amount this year, he said the economy might hamper its efforts.
As the event grows and more restaurants join the cause, Kadoura said its nature has changed. Initially, when only a few restaurants participated, their business significantly increased due to the event’s publicity. Now, since so many restaurants take part, Kadoura said each restaurant’s business seems relatively unaffected. He said while individual restaurants don’t see the jump in usage that they used to, the overall profit for the council has increased.
But Subash Panneerselvam, the chef manager of Cholanad, said reservations at the restaurant looked more like a Friday than a Tuesday night. Bandido’s Mexican Cafe also participated in the event. Upon learning about RSVVP while eating at Bandido’s on Tuesday, Chapel Hill resident Jake Rohde said RSVVP made him feel less guilty about eating out.

On the wire: national and world news
US considers Middle East policy changes
WASHINGTON, D.C. (MCT) — The Obama administration has begun to reassess its foreign policy on such topics as Iran, Syria, Afghanistan and missile defense that were viewed as too politically sensitive for any substantial shifts during the presidential campaign. For months, these issues had what some U.S. officials called “AE” status, meaning any policy changes would be put off until after the election. But with Obama winning a second term last week, top administration officials say they are considering whether to deepen U.S. involvement in Syria’s civil war, accelerate the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan, and offer Iran a compromise deal to curb its enrichment of uranium. They also are considering how to work out new cooperation with China, an undertaking that Obama campaign operatives had feared might alienate swing-state voters anxious about Chinese trade policies and competition. The administration already is taking a new direction on the worsening Syrian conflict, which threatens to spread turmoil and refugees across the Middle East. After months of trying to limit the U.S. role, administration officials said they have begun trying to help reshape the civilian-led rebel movement so it can better defend itself against heavily armed military forces loyal to President Bashar Assad.

Paralyzed NC veteran sues for mistreatment
CHICAGO (MCT) — A former Marine Corps sergeant who was paralyzed while serving in Afghanistan claims he was mistreated at O’Hare International Airport almost two years ago when airline and airport-related employees allegedly injured him and let him sit in his own urine for nearly two hours. In a lawsuit filed Tuesday in Cook County Circuit Court, Sgt. Joseph Smith, of North Carolina, says United Airlines and Air Serv Corporation employees refused to help him to his seat during a layover in Chicago on Nov. 19, 2010. Smith, who requires a wheelchair to travel after being paralyzed in Operation Enduring Freedom, was headed to Colorado Springs, Colo., for training as part of a Paralympic shooting team, said his lawyer, Alexander Loftus. Representatives for United Airlines and Air Serv could not immediately be reached for comment Tuesday.
The suit seeks $300,000 in damages. It alleges that after Smith’s flight landed in Chicago, an Air Serv employee ignored his warning that the front wheel of his wheelchair was stuck, causing him to fall out of the chair. Smith, 42, struck the left side of his head and suffered a concussion, according to the lawsuit and Loftus. Though an Air Serv employee helped Smith back into his chair, the veteran wheeled himself to his connecting flight, the suit states. Once he arrived at the gate, United and Air Serv employees allegedly refused to find an aisle chair to transport Smith to his seat in the seventh row or switch his seat on the plane to the first row, according to the lawsuit. The suit further alleges that Smith dragged his own “limp body” down the aisle, causing his catheter bag to break and spill urine. No one offered to help Smith to his seat or clean the urine, which stayed on Smith for nearly two hours until he arrived in Colorado Springs, according to the lawsuit.

Russian hunter fined for killing endangered tiger
MOSCOW (MCT) — A hunter in Russia’s far east was sentenced Tuesday to 18
months of community service and fined about $18,500 for killing a Siberian tiger, a rare case in this country of punishment for poaching the endangered animal. Khasan District Court found Alexander Belyayev guilty of killing one of the remaining 500 tigers in the Maritime and Khabarovsk territories. Ecologists hailed the verdict as a success in the struggle to protect the species. An
estimated 30 to 50 tigers are killed each year by poachers and residents, said Vladimir Krever, head of the World Wildlife Fund’s Russian biodiversity program. “Of dozens of cases related to tiger killings over the last three years, this is the second guilty verdict, and such a harsh one that leaves us a hope that it may serve as a good lesson to potential poachers,” Krever said in an
interview. Between the breakup of the Soviet Union in 1991 and 2009 only one person was found guilty of killing a tiger. Belyayev, who was accused in October 2010, did not deny that he killed the tiger but insisted he acted in selfdefense, showing authorities his own light injuries. Belyayev was deprived of his hunting license and his hunting rifle was confiscated.

Jazz orchestra opens practice to all
By Elizabeth Baker
from page 1
see the orChestra
Time: 7:45 p.m. Location: The ArtsCenter in Carrboro More information: http:// bit.ly/RRrVyU
Triangle Jazz Orchestra bassist Bob Brower describes big band like a freight train — it has a power and a life of its own. The orchestra is holding an open rehearsal today at The ArtsCenter in Carrboro to let others share in the band’s growth. Tess Mangum Ocana, concert director at The ArtsCenter, said the orchestra has been rehearsing there for years. Ocana said the group wants to make its rehearsals open to share its love of music with the public. She said the atmosphere at rehearsals is relaxed. “People can listen, they can dance, they can draw — they can do anything they want,” Ocana said. She said she is excited to have a local jazz event at The
ArtsCenter because she thinks jazz is an underrepresented genre of music in the area. Brower said jazz allows people to reminisce as they hear old hits. Ocana said the orchestra can play a variety of styles and artists — from Artie Shaw to Cab Calloway. “Back in the ’30s and ’40s, when you turned on the top-10 radio, it wasn’t Taylor Swift. It was this music that people danced to and flirted to,” Ocana said. Brower said he likes the energy that comes from a big band.
“When it all clicks, it sounds really good,” he said. He said audience applause inspires the musicians. Stan Levy, a tenor saxophonist in the orchestra, said a dancing crowd enlivens the orchestra. “A big band responds to dancers on the floor with more energy,” he said. “If people seem interested in the music, the band is going to try a little harder.” But Brower said the most exciting part of the performance is the improvisation. He said he does not have to adhere to the sheet music — he interprets the notes like one might interpret a painting. Levy said the rehearsals at The ArtsCenter allow the orchestra to try out unconventional pieces. “It’s not predictable — it’s unexpected because there’s that element of improvisaJason Melehani, memberat-large of the executive committee for N.C.’s Libertarian Party, worked for Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson’s campaign. He said the party’s ultimate goal is to win national races. “We are getting the word ‘libertarian’ out into the public vernacular,” he said. “We want to convince our natural allies, such as LGBT and anti-tax groups, that we are a better avenue for advocating their issues than their traditional (party) allies.” But Democrats and Republicans have differing views on the future role of the Libertarian Party. Austin Gilmore, president of UNC Young Democrats, said the Libertarian Party

tion,” Levy said. “That unpredictability makes it interesting. There’s a little bit of adventure with that.” Levy said the band members have to listen to each other and cooperate as a team to make the best music they can.
“Being in a big band is a little like being on a football team,” Levy said. “When we’re all in sync, that’s when it’s most exciting.” Contact the desk editor at email@example.com.

among young voters. The Libertarian Party, which tends to advocate for conservative economic policies and liberal social policies, is at a disadvantage because of a lack of recognition and money, along with straightticket voting, she said. But the Nov. 6 election did bring some victories for the party. Two Libertarians in N.C. state legislative races received about 20 percent of the vote, which is promising, Howe said. “It always shakes down to whichever two parties happen to be the strongest, though there is nothing written in stone as to which it has to be,” Howe said.
work and support in hopes that they will implement the proposal,” he said. “Many students don’t have the same opportunity to be academically successful because they don’t have safe housing opportunities.” At Saturday’s ASG meeting, delegates passed a resolution in support of UNC-CH’s push for gender-neutral housing. Delegates from different campuses spoke in favor of the resolution, said Jocelyn Burney, a UNC-CH delegate who wrote the resolution. UNC-CH would be the first system school to offer a gender-neutral housing option. Burney said ASG’s support of UNC-CH’s initiative will spur change across the system. “It will help remind students that this is still an important issue they should be concerned about and fighting for,” she said. Some form of gender-neutral housing is offered at 32 public universities and 66 private universities nationwide, according to the proposal. The University of Pennsylvania started offering gender-neutral housing in 2005, said Ron Ozio, the university’s spokesman. “There really wasn’t any controversy at all,” Ozio said. “For a university, it was approved in really short order.” Penn extended the option to freshmen this fall, he said. At first, Penn students interested in gender-neutral housing needed to request a specific roommate. Now, they can have a random roommate in a gender-neutral arrangement. This fall, 281 Penn students were willing to room with a student of the opposite gender. And Duke University might allow some of its residence halls to vote on genderneutral options. Duke began offering gender-neutral housing in certain on-campus apartments last year and is working to expand options for 2013-14, said Rick Johnson, assistant vice president of student affairs for housing, dining and residence life at Duke, in an email. Patrick Oathout, Duke student government’s executive vice president, said some residence halls would need renovations to accommodate gender-neutral housing.

should focus on shaping Republican policies. He said the Democratic Party would be reticent to incorporate some libertarian positions, such as the rollback of New Deal social programs. But he said the Libertarian Party affords Republicans an opportunity to back away from their traditional stances on social issues, such as opposition to same-sex marriage. Garrett Jacobs, chairman of UNC College Republicans, said incorporating libertarian ideals into the GOP would have to be decided on a policy-by-policy basis. Everett Lozzi, state chairman of Young Americans for Liberty, said he thinks the
party will continue to spread its message in the future — but is not likely to win races. He said the Republican Party would adopt some libertarian views if the Libertarian Party begins to gain a significant percentage of the vote — like when Democrats included environmentalism in their platform to siphon away votes from the Green Party. “The social platform of the Republican Party is most likely to change, because a fair amount of Romney’s supporters voted on libertarian ideals,” he said. Contact the desk editor at email@example.com.
Director of Housekeeping Services Darius Dixon, who started at the position in April, said the issues are being addressed. “Everybody’s been on top of that for a long time … coming up with the appropriate response,” he said. In September 2011, PRM Consulting Group released a report suggesting more than 45 changes to improve the culture of the housekeeping department. Administrators have been implementing the reforms, which include the formation of a peer advisory council of housekeepers and English language training. Alsous said housekeepers notified the University of the issues two or three months ago, but she said there has been no apparent response. In the past month, five workers have left the zone to escape the harassment, Alsous said. She said the housekeepers want the zone manager fired and the crew leader demoted back to a regular housekeeper position. Laurel Ashton, another member of Student Action with Workers, said the problem is managerial abuse of power. “One of the big issues is just general disrespect,” she said. Alsous said the crew leader — who reports to the zone manager — yells at the housekeepers she works with and micromanages them. “She has made workers cry,” she said. The crew leader and zone manager also mock housekeepers with limited English skills, she said. Members of Student Action with Workers planned to meet with housekeepers at 3 a.m. this morning to finalize the language of the grievance. Contact the desk editor at firstname.lastname@example.org.

“Couldn’t there be a discussion about moving taxpayer money from the UNC system to the community college system?”
truthinnumbers, on UNC funding cuts hurting the state’s workforce
The Observatory Junior communication studies and English major from new bern. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
he holidays approacheth. For me, whose hometown is small and in the eastern part of the state, so do many unsolicited questions about my life choices. I don’t mean to claim that snooping onslaught around Thanksgiving from one’s relatives and neighbors is exclusive to quasi-rural North Carolina. But I do maintain that, in said region, said onslaught is considerably more difficult to escape. I also don’t mean to imply that the interrogation comes from any place more sinister than love, support and genuine interest. My forthcoming inquisitors happen to be among my favorite people. But after a few years, I think I’ve got the formula pegged. Sequence 1: Still majoring in English? (Yes ma’am/sir). So you’re going to be a lawyer? (Actually, I’m just majoring in English in order to learn about English literature). Oh. You should go into advertising! Sequence 2: So what’s the plan after graduation? (Oh, not sure yet, don’t know if you heard but the job market’s not exactly welcoming at the moment). Well, there’s always a market for lawyers. (Actually, there’s a glut of law school graduates in America right now, also I don’t really want to be a lawyer). You know, you really should think about advertising. It’s a very creative industry. And then, the most problematic/sweaty of the sequences, Sequence 3, begins: So do you have a boyfriend? There are two acceptable answers to this question: “yes” and “no.” The “no” must be untethered — not “no, but I have a very dependable booty call” or “no, because I am primarily attracted to women” or “no, I will not answer that intrusive and reductive question.” Circumstances prevent me from disclosing my current romantic situation (Taylor Kitsch, of the acclaimed “Friday Night Lights” and the less-acclaimed “Battleship 3D,” has forbidden me from publicly confirming our divorcedwith-benefits arrangement). But hypothetically, this year, if my answer were no, the response would be the ostensibly supportive (actually patronizing) “good for you” or the ostensibly hopeful (actually ominous) “you’ve got plenty of time.” If my answer were yes, it would incur the following queries. 1) Are his folks nice? (Subtext: does he come from a “good family,” which is a whole ‘nother “A Good Man Is Hard to Find” kind of problem). 2) Does he treat you right? (Subtext: does he behave according to mid-20th century prescriptions of gender politics?). 3) Is he a “keeper”? (Subtext: when can we expect a wedding invitation?). Though it will occasionally seem necessary to remind my conversational partner that we are living in the year two thousand and fluffing twelve, it’s not worthwhile to revise the script. As usual, I plan to embrace it. If I need some excitement, I can always mention that I voted for Obama.
The intrusive holiday interview
lETTErS TO THE EDiTOr
The DTH should have covered the step show
TO THE EDITOR: Over the past four years I have always been one to defend The Daily Tar Heel in their reporting as many of my friends have always felt that the happenings in the black community are vastly under reported. It was only to my dismay that I picked up the paper Monday morning to find out that there was no mention of this year’s step show. Granted there was not much written about Homecoming (not even a mention of Mr. and Miss UNC — another injustice to people in my class), but to me, this year’s step show deserved some coverage. Not only did an organization reach a milestone of winning the title 10 years in a row, but practically an entire performance was dedicated to Faith Hedgepeth. I’m wondering if there was even a reporter sent to the step show, but I guess men’s basketball deserves all of our attention. Three different articles in a weekend of obvious wins against no-name opponents for men’s basketball is two articles too many. I appreciate the success of our athletic program as much as the next Tar Heel, but there is more to be aware of and informed about at UNC than Roy’s Boys.

felt safer with the company; his reasons were just that — his own. In light of recent deaths of students, I would especially encourage everyone to choose safety over “having a pair.” In fact, I think that making this wise decision is much ballsier than writing a kvetch to tear down others. Edification and understanding, UNC. I dare each of you to try it. Katie Hill ’13 Elementary education
Focusing on freshmen
he first-year focus council operates as a special project of the executive branch of student government. It is in need of reform. According to its website, the council’s role is to “broaden members’ knowledge of student government and prepare them to take on a leadership role in the organization.” Student government should be working to develop the skills of all freshmen involved in the organization and not just the select few on the council. Students must apply
not all women won in this year’s election
TO THE EDITOR: In Thursday’s Quickhits, the author wrote that “Among the winners this election were women in all walks of life.” Not only is this statement false, but it also undermines the lives of the countless women who have lost as a result of this election. Among these women are Pakistani women who continue to be victims of the drone wars, undocumented women who are being deported at a significantly higher rate now than under previous administrations, as well as women who depend on medical cannabis. The current administration’s drone initiative has terrorized countless Pakistani women who live in the constant fear of a new strike. The Obama administration has deported, on average, one and a half times more immigrants per month than the Bush administration, making life much worse for undocumented women. The increased threat of deportation has caused many undocumented women to choose not to report incidents of domestic violence or sexual assault. The risk of deportation for reporting these incidents only adds to the problem for many of these women. Obama continues to conduct raids on medical marijuana facilities, negatively impacting the lives of hundreds of medical marijuana patients. Women who depend on medical cannabis certainly haven’t emerged from this election as “winners.” To say that women “in all walks of life” were winners in this election is to blatantly disregard the hundreds of women in the Middle East and Pakistan, undocumented women here in the U.S. and women who are dependent on medical marijuana.

to the committee just two weeks into the school year. Only 14 to 15 freshmen are selected for the committee. All new members to student government would benefit from the resources and training the committee offers. Two of the three chairmen have served on the council before. While the council does have good intentions, the chairmen’s passion for student government could be better utilized. The chairmen could use their experiences to educate all new members on the process of developing projects — in the service of the student body — for student government. Having all freshmen members meet and hear
from influential student leaders and administrators would benefit the new members and the committees they serve. Members of the firstyear focus council are required to serve on an additional committee in student government. Chairmen of the other committees — that council members belong to — should also act as student government mentors for freshmen. Making the council a highly selective group doesn’t benefit student government. After all, no current executive board officers were members of the council. The first-year focus council should focus on all student government freshmen.
Lots of accessibility
tarting with the 2013-14 school year, commuters will have to pay a minimum $227 fee if they want to utilize the University’s park-and-ride lots. While the fee is in place to offset a $6.1 million increase in transportation costs, it makes parking services less accessible. The Department of Public Safety will charge the fee using a sliding scale based on income. The minimum of $277 equates to slightly less than $1 per day for the services, significantly less than buying an on-campus pass.
The fee for parkand-ride lots limits affordability.
To some lower-income families and employees, $277 is a significant portion of their annual budget when they already have to balance the constantly fluctuating price of gas. The purpose of the park-and-ride lots is to encourage carpooling and provide convenience for employees who live farther away from campus but cannot afford the charge for on-campus parking passes. For those who have to commute to the University every day from more rural areas, the free services of the park-and-ride lots have been the only affordable option. Although all of the policy’s nuances have not been completely ironed out,
there should be a pay-asyou-go option in order to ease the transition for these lower-income families. For some families, having to pay this fee up front makes the park-and-ride lots unaffordable. It is understandable that DPS is looking to ease the burden of transportation costs that on-campus permit holders have previously borne. But this fee imposes the burden on families and students who will feel it more than those who can already afford to park on campus. When DPS begins drafting its new plan for future years, it should prioritize restoring the accessibility of the parkand-ride lots.
Kvetches encourage a culture of judgment
TO THE EDITOR: Last Friday, I was just as eager to read the kvetches as anyone. However, I was quickly disgruntled when I read the kvetch, “To the guy getting a Safe Walk from the UL at 10 p.m.: Grow a pair.” First of all, I could attack The Daily Tar Heel for publishing such a travesty just to get a few laughs. Yet, I could also speak directly to the source of this judgment. In this community, we constantly speak of acceptance and the effort to put oneself into another’s shoes. Have you not been listening? It is not our right to decide what feeling safe means for anyone else, of any gender. It does not matter for what reason this guy was with Safe Walk, be it because the walkers were his friends or because he
hough the Office of Diversity and Multicultural Affairs should be commended for its programs that promote embracing differences, it is necessary for students to take the next step and engage with the University’s diverse population outside of scheduled programs. While the office is making efforts to expose students on campus to mind sets and backgrounds different from their own, students cannot be passive learners. It takes more than merely attending the office’s

programs to learn how to be culturally competent. Instead, students should consistently engage with diversity issues in all aspects of their life with an open mind. Cultural competency does not mean just acquiring factual knowledge, but knowing how to use it. U.S. Census data predict that by the year 2050, there will be no racial or ethnic majority in the United States, and from 2000 to 2050 immigrants and their children will make up 83 percent of the growth in the working age population. According to the Center for American Progress, a diverse and inclusive environment results in a better workforce,
and 85 percent of large global enterprises in a Forbes survey agreed that “diversity is crucial to fostering innovation in the workplace.” Students now have to be culturally competent in the global market. This means integrating this way of thinking into the classroom, in extra-curricular activities and embedding it in everyday life. Students must apply what they learn from diversity programming outside of seminars — and be aware that they’re probably not as culturally competent as they think. If this starts to happen, then students will better be able to adapt to this increasingly diverse society.
