Members of dance Marathon got down in the pit on Friday as part of moraler and volunteer recruitment week. Moralers work in shifts to encourage dancers to stand up for 24 hours and are responsible for raising at least $50 for the n.C. Children’s hospital.
Angela Vargas, better known by UnC students as “Miss Angie,” can barely hold her tears as she recounts her firing from the University in december. Vargas, who was well-liked among students, inspired a 1,696-member Facebook group in protest of her firing.
‘miss angie’ missed
missal, Vargas said one of the most hurtful documents she received was a warning to remove her scrapbook from the Rams Head register area in accordance with the policy of UNC’s food services provider, Aramark Corp. Aramark prohibits personal items from the workspace partially because of sanitation concerns, said Megan Phelps, senior human resources manager for Aramark at UNC. “It’s a part of me and my customer service, and I don’t see anything wrong with it,” said Vargas, who saw her book as far less of a sanitary threat than the dirty trays she said Aramark would stow beneath her register. “Since when did a book give someone H1N1?” She said her book eventually was hidden from her beneath another register. The scrapbook conflict was one of several run-ins Vargas had with the dining hall’s managers and Aramark’s resident district manager, Bill Cunningham. On Sept. 4, Vargas received a final warning for violating Aramark’s rest

A scrapbook is the only remaining link between Angela Vargas and the last six years of her life at UNC. Browsing through pages of pictures, a bubbly ear-to-ear smile stretches across her face as she remembers students whose transitions to college life were eased with the swipe of a One Card during her career as a Rams Head Dining Hall cashier. But other pages bring tears to the eyes of “Miss Angie,” like the one she received Dec. 8 notifying her of her firing for “unacceptable personal conduct” after she arrived one hour late to work the day before. Vargas, 38, was known as a vibrant and constantly upbeat personality among students. Her firing inspired a 1,696-member Facebook group titled, “No, its NOT all good, bring Miss Angie back to Rams Head,” in protest.

Along with the formal notice of her dis-
breaks and meal periods policy by taking an additional break between 1:20 p.m. and 1:52 p.m. not approved by management. But Vargas contends she was authorized to take a break from 1:30 p.m. to 2 p.m. Along with the warnings issued to her, Vargas said she levied at least 29 complaints against Aramark concerning issues ranging from managers throwing away comment cards submitted by students to a broken drawer and jukebox never being fixed. She said the formal reason for her firing was window dressing for the true reason: retribution for the complaints she voiced. “People tend to stop calling corporate when they get punished for calling corporate,” she said. The complaints — which are unconfirmed — predominantly targeted managers. Vargas complained that managers brought beer into Rams Head Dining Hall, intimidated employees against unionizing and gambled during working hours. “I have no knowledge of that,” Cunningham said. “When it comes to any kind of other activity, we go strictly by the book.”
Federal prosecutors argued Friday that moving the trial of one of the men charged with killing former Student Body President Eve Carson would be inconvenient and unnecessary. Prosecutors in the U.S. Attorney’s office for the Middle District of North Carolina in WinstonSalem responded Friday to the defense’s request to site the trial outside of North Carolina. The defense said in December that intense publicity following Carson’s death in March 2008 tainted the jury pool, making it impossible for their client, 23-year-old Demario James Atwater, to have a fair trial in the state. Prosecutors said that even though many North Carolinians are familiar with the case, the jury selection process would ensure unbiased members and avoid inconveniently transplanting lawyers, witnesses and staff to another state. The trial is set to be in early May, and a judge has until then to decide whether a move is necessary. The government would be responsible for financing the move. In most federal trials, the defense expects judges to deny motions to move the trial, said Rich Myers, an assistant professor at UNC School of Law, who worked several years as a federal prosecutor in the Eastern District. The U.S. Constitution states that criminal trials should be held in the state where the crime was committed. But strong evidence of a biased jury pool could be reason to move. “The defense has done a very good job bringing forward important information, enough to make the judge really think this through,” Myers said. Lynne Klauer, assistant U.S. attorney for the Middle District, said she couldn’t remember the last time federal courts granted a change of venue. Investigators say on March 5, 2008, Atwater and Lawrence Alvin Lovette, 19, took Carson from her home, drove her to an ATM to withdraw $1,400, then shot her five times in a neighborhood off East Franklin Street.

For the members of Delta Kappa Epsilon fraternity and their families, Sunday was a day to begin rebuilding lives and laying a new foundation for leadership and a needy family. The ceremony brought about 150 fraternity members, family, alumni and members of the UNC community to symbolically break ground on the Courtland Benjamin Smith Memorial House, a Habitat for Humanity house in honor of their late president. “We feel very fortunate to have these young men as our friends,” said Courtland Smith’s emotional father, Pharr Smith, as he spoke to the crowd. “And we know Courtland was — and would be today — very proud to be one of them.” While he spoke to the crowd, most of whom were young men standing solemnly in navy blazers, he recalled meeting members of the fraternity, many for the first time, when they traveled to the Smiths’ home in Houston in the days after his son’s tragic death, full of kind words and heartfelt sincerity. Courtland Smith, who was the president of Delta Kappa Epsilon, was killed by a police officer near Greensboro on the morning of Aug. 23, according to police. Smith had been driving drunk and called 911, asking for help. Fraternity members said they not only lost a friend when Courtland Smith died, but they also lost a leader who was exceptionally well-regarded in the fraternity system and across campus. As a result of an investigation into alcohol violations at the fraternity house the night Smith died, Delta Kappa Epsilon volunteered to spend its yearly

The dashboard camera video showing Courtland Smith’s interaction with police in the minutes before he was shot and killed should be permanently sealed, a judge ruled Friday. Randolph County Superior Court Judge Brad Long said his court does not have the proper authority to allow the video’s release, reversing a September order that the video be unsealed should no case be pursued against the officers involved in the shooting. The Randolph County district attorney decided Dec. 4 the shooting was justified.
In November, Smith’s parents filed a motion to permanently seal the video. They argued both that the court did not have the authority to release the video and that releasing the video would be damaging to Smith’s family. Delta Kappa Epsilon members said in a statement they are happy with the decision. “Its release would not have brought anything to light,” the statement said. “We are glad that the Smiths and Courtland’s friends will not have to be exposed to that.” Contact the University Editor at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Town officials say the poor economic climate won’t affect their most recent attempt to revive downtown. The first recipient of a town loan for art businesses, a gallery called FRANK, is set to open in the coming months at 109 E. Franklin St. In addition to the town loan and generously low rent, the 3,400-square foot gallery is going to operate as a collective — meaning artists will pay to be members. Recently, three local and privately owned galleries have closed or are on their way to closing. But with FRANK’s unconventional business model, Chapel Hill Town Manager Roger Stancil said the gallery is a safe investment. “From the scuttlebutt, people are very excited,” said FRANK Director Barbara Rich. The gallery will showcase work with a price range from $10 to $10,000, she said. With the collective business model, all paying members are

Britain needs more sperm donors
ritain is experiencing a “serious shortfall” in the number of sperm donors available, medical researchers have determined. To cope with the loss, moms-to-be are turning more often to imported semen or do-ityourself insemination kits from the Internet. The number of British women receiving sperm donations fell from about 9,000 in 1992 to about 2,000 in 2007, according to data from the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority. Doctors believe that a 2005 law change that removed sperm donors’ right to anonymity might be to blame for the national low sperm count. The shortage could also give women less choice about the characteristics of their sperm donors.

The Chapel Hill Town Council will meet Friday and Saturday for a town planning retreat to establish the council’s goals for the year. These goals will be developed into a work plan and budget by Town Manager Roger Stancil and senior staff for later council consideration. The retreat begins with a Friday dinner including an overview of 2009 highlights and launches into discussions at 8:30 a.m. Saturday at the Education Center at the N.C. Botanical Garden located at 100 Old Mason Farm Road. The discussions will focus on developing steps for the goals the council has set for the past three years, which include improving land use, transit and development, and community facilities and services.

Juniors Caroline Fish and Chase Jones have been named the recipients of the Eve Marie Carson Scholarship for the 2010-11 school year. The two in-state students were selected by a committee for their commitment to academic excellence, leadership and public service. They will receive funding to cover half the estimated cost of attendance at UNC, as well as $5,000 for a summer project. The scholarship was created to commemorate the life of former Student Body President Eve Carson, who was killed in March 2008. Carson was committed to the idea of creating a merit scholarship for juniors. The scholarship is funded by more than 1,700 private donations to an endowment managed by the UNC development office.

Duke University to develop test for radiation exposure
Duke University has secured a U.S. government contract worth up to $43.6 million to develop a rapid, gene-based test for radiation exposure. The test, which is slated to be ready in 2012, would aid medical officials responding to the detonation of a dirty bomb or a nuclear attack. The Biomedical Advanced Research and De velopment Authority in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services awarded the contract to Duke Medicine in part because of growing concerns about a nuclear or radiological terrorist attack, Dr. John Chute, the Duke physician overseeing the project, said in a press release last week. Chute, who specializes in adult bone marrow transplants, said he sees the damage radioactive material can do to the human body firsthand. Duke applied for the funding in April, and that proposal was chosen through a completive process, Chute said. “It’s a big deal. It’s a lot of money.” -From staff and wire reports.

u.n. trying to put Haitians to work
PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (MCT) — International relief officials turned their attention to finding shelter and getting aid to those hundreds of thousands who survived the most devastating natural disaster in Haiti’s history. With a key donors conference set for Monday in Montreal, Canada, Haiti leaders and the international community focused on finding the money and expertise needed to rebuild. The United Nations is hoping to put hundreds of Haitians to work in cleaning up their battered city, said U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon in a meeting.
Bin Laden claims that al-Qaida was responsible for failed Christmas plot
BEIRUT (MCT) — Al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden claimed responsibility for the Christmas Day attempt to blow up an American civilian jet in an audiotape broadcast Sunday on Arab television. U.S. intelligence officials quickly raised doubts about bin Laden’s role and suggested the statement was an attempt to score propaganda points for a plot already claimed by an increasingly independent faction of his movement in Yemen. Speaking directly to President Barack Obama, the al-Qaida leader vowed to continue launching terrorist attacks against the United States as long as Washington supported what he described as Israel’s unjust treatment of Palestinians. “From Osama to Obama: Peace upon the one who follows guidance,” he said on the tape, broadcast on the pan-Arab Al Jazeera satellite news channel, his image appearing on the screen as he spoke. “America will not dream of security until we experience it as a reality in Palestine.” U.S. intelligence officials on Sunday did not cast doubt on the authenticity of the tape.

Karzai postpones parliament voting
KABUL, Afghanistan (MCT) — Under strong international pressure to reform Afghanistan’s electoral system before holding another nationwide vote, the government of President Hamid Karzai on Sunday put off balloting for a new parliament until September. Election officials had said the voting would take place in May. But western diplomats made it clear their governments would refuse to pick up the tab for any balloting that took place before “root-and-branch” electoral reforms. The announcement of a Sept. 18 election date was made by Afghanistan’s Independent Election Commission.
Bernanke gathers u.S. might fund 2 key supporters nuclear reactors
WASHINGTON, D.C. (MCT) — Federal Reserve Chairman Ben S. Bernanke, whose reconfirmation has become surprisingly jeopardized, received a bipartisan boost from two key senators who reiterated their support for him. Senate Banking Committee Chairman Christopher J. Dodd, D-Conn., and Sen. Judd Gregg, R-N.H., took the unusual step of issuing a weekend statement on Bernanke’s behalf. The move came a day after two Democratic senators, Barbara Boxer of California and Russell D. Feingold of Wisconsin, announced their opposition to Bernanke’s renomination. WASHINGTON, D.C. (MCT) — The Obama administration soon might guarantee as much as $18.5 billion in loans to build new nuclear reactors to generate electricity, and Congress is considering whether to add billions more to support an expansion of nuclear power. These actions come after an extensive, decade-long campaign in which companies and unions related to the industry have spent more than $600 million on lobbying and nearly $63 million on campaign contributions, according to an analysis by the Investigative Reporting Wo r k s h o p a t A m e r i c a n University.
Two UNC fraternities were forced to stop recruiting new members after a year scarred by hazing allegations at other chapters within their national organizations. The national organizations — Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Inc. and Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity Inc. — have ordered all chapters to stop new member recruitment following hazing scandals that resulted in the death of a student and serious injuries to another in Texas and Georgia, respectively. “Up until recently, national has been pretty tight-lipped,” said Justin Clayton, president of the 11-member Mu Zeta chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha at UNC. “At this point, all we know is that it is suspended until further notice.” UNC’s nine-member Xi Gamma chapter of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity has also been required to end new member induction indefinitely. Its president Lorenzo Hopper said it can be difficult to ensure the pledging processes are safe and disciplined at the same time. “It’s a thin line for a lot of people,” he said. “They get confused along the line — in their efforts of making sure the members of the fraternity really are dedicated.” Both Alpha Phi Alpha and Phi Beta Sigma are members of the “Divine Nine,” historically black fraternity and sorority organizations.
Most Greek organizations begin the process of adding new members at the beginning of the fall and the spring semesters. These processes, which were once conducted “underground,” or without set guidelines, are now overseen by university officials and the chapters’ national organizations. Jenny Levering, UNC assistant dean of students for fraternity and sorority life, said the National PanHellenic Council, which governs the Divine Nine, more frequently institutes such nationwide pledging freezes than similar organizations that govern all fraternities and sororities at UNC. “Because of the history of their organizations and how they used to have an underground pledging process, it’s been hard for them to adapt to new processes,” she
said. Clayton said many chapters fail to realize that times have changed. “It’s very difficult to take what’s been done by tradition and apply that to current rules,” Clayton said. “What was done to enter my chapter 20 years ago legally is now very illegal.” Despite this history and indiscretions nationwide, the UNC chapters of Alpha Phi Alpha and Phi Beta Sigma have clean hazing records as of recently, Levering said. “Hazing reputations can vary campuswide, regionwide, and nationwide,” Clayton said. “You can drive three hours south and a fraternity’s reputation is completely opposite from another.” Contact the State & National Editor at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Baobab trees, red tape — c’est la vie
n the classic French fable “Le Petit Prince,” the titular tiny prince talks of waking each morning and tending to his equally tiny planet. It’s an iconic French image: avoiding the swirling chaos of the universe around you and focusing instead on the tiny, beautiful immediate. Among other things, Le Petit Prince reminds us to put aside our bigger problems in order to take care of more manageable things, like sheep and flowers and baobab seedlings. Here in France, I wake up every morning and tend my own personal French planet. But my problems aren’t as simple as the Little Prince. Rather than subversively planting baobab seeds, I have to dig my way out of an ever-increasing pile of complicated bureaucratic paperwork. And for me, it’s no use uprooting the plant seedlings in my apartment. One is already growing. In fact, I’m helping it grow. It’s in my rental agreement. You see, I’m sharing my shower with a palm tree, and if it dies, I have to pay to replace it. It has not been made clear to me why my landlord decided putting a palm tree in my shower would be a good idea. Like much here in France, things are never really certain. I’m not really sure why I’m not allowed to smile on the street or hug my friend when I meet her on the metro. And no one has explained to me the exact specifications of my program of study here, or what things I’ll need to do to prepare for the coming term. I can’t explain the palm tree — which I have named Gregoire — any more than I can explain why the landlord’s cat lives in our apartment and not his. I don’t have any answers. But really, neither does the French language. With its delicate subtlety of meaning, its flowing shift of words and its singsong-y intonation patterns, French is really good at sounding pretty without actually saying anything, which is probably why it is considered by many to be the international language of diplomacy. In French, you can talk for hours about word definition and usage, without actually doing anything constructive. Turns out, the same thing holds true for France as a whole. I’m not sure what else I expected. As I wander through the streets of Paris, searching for both personal fulfillment and the next hidden university building, I get the sense that no one here really knows the whole picture. The important thing, I’ve been told, is to pretend like you know what you’re doing until you actually do, even if that day never actually comes. It’s been frustrating. My French skills come into question on a daily basis, and I continue to fill out forms and pay fees for no readily apparent reason. I don’t know too many people here, and the French aren’t too quick to make friends with transient Americans here for the spring and gone by the summer. But when things get really tough, I still have my plant. It doesn’t judge my French. It doesn’t ask for my visa application. It just wants some water, the occasionally dusting of sunshine from the skylight and its own personal space in my shower. And as the next few confusing, Frenchified months go by, I’ll keep thinking of the methodical little prince. Times may be hard, and the world may be coming to an end, but you still have to keep tending to your planet. Or your palm tree.
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
safe Walk program should be expanded off-campus
TO THE EDITOR: I read Christian Yoder’s editorial regarding the SafeWalk program and its deficiencies (“Viewpoints: Safe Walk,” Jan. 20). For the most part, I agree; $11,000 to $20,000 seems a ridiculous amount of money to employ 25 students and give them reflective vests. I was also shocked to read that intoxicated students are not walked and off-campus locations are not covered; a drunken or off-campus student likely has the greatest need for a safe way home. Besides, not all off-campus locations have the blue light system and aren’t as well lit. The program’s intention is good, but if student government wants to invest in a campus safety program, it should consider forming a program like Duke’s (yes, Duke’s) Safe Rides program. As its Web site states, “Safe Rides … provides an alternative to walking alone or in isolated areas of campus … Safe Rides provides Duke employees and students with no cost ondemand van service to campus areas, and certain off-campus areas, from 5 p.m. to 7 a.m.” It seems like $20,000 could afford a few cars and some gas money to get students home safely, no matter what their BAC or location.

students paying for many bad decisions with tickets
TO THE EDITOR: There are many reasons why the current ticket policy and seat locations are in place. Accountability seems to be a foreign word to many young people today, and it may not seem fair, but you are being held accountable for numerous bad decisions made by previous students. Bad decision number one, and it was mentioned in the Margolis column (“Put ticket policy in hot seat,” Jan. 20), was voting down the small student fee increase (about $10 per semester) to help fund the Smith Center more than 25 years ago. Bad decision number two was the rampant scalping of student tickets for the big money games (Duke, State, etc). This ultimately led to the infamous pink student tickets, which made it much easier for the people at the door to identify them and check for IDs. Bad decision number three was bringing along friends from other schools. This is one of many things that ultimately led to the current policy of one ticket per student. You may not think it is fair that the students don’t get all of the courtside seats. Well, I don’t think it is fair that I was just a few years out of college when the Smith Center was built, so I couldn’t afford the $25,000 required to get lower level seats. My seats are in the upper deck, along with many of the student seats, but there are two huge differences. I have to pay for my tickets, and I actually show up for every game. Tom Hicks UNC ’78
UNC must come clean
Pollution from University research facility must stop; transparency and accountability are necessary
he University should follow the steps laid out by a community group to clean up the mess a mysterious UNC research facility made near a local creek. The state issued a notice of violation to the University in December after the Research Resource Facility leaked treated animal waste water into Collins Creek, in the rural western part of the county. This is not the first time the facility has had problems with leaks. Two other incidents also have been reported, one of which released an estimated 630 gallons of treated animal wastewater. Now members of the community are calling for more accountability and transpar-
ency from the University about the issue. Mary Beth Koza, the director of Environment, Health and Safety at UNC, stated that she was not sure how concerned the local community would be about the issue. Of course the community should be apprehensive. Koza’s naiveté downplays the potentially harmful effects of dog and pig waste. Besides, community members had already raised concerns about an incinerator inside the facility used to dispose of animal carcasses. On top of all this, the incidents occurred at Collins Creek, which eventually empties into Jordan Lake, a reservoir that serves the local area.
Advocacy group Preserve Rural Orange called for more open communication from the University, an open tour of the facility and testing of facility waters for toxins and pathogens. The group also requested that the University stop using the incinerator because it has experienced malfunctions in the past. These are reasonable requests and the University should work to heed them. At the very least, the University needs to be fully transparent about the work that goes on in these facilities. The effects of the leak on the surrounding area have yet to be determined, but the University must take every step it can to make up for its negligence.

network — leaving them vulnerable to hackers. John Streck, the assistant vice chancellor for communications technologies, said the UNC-1 network’s protection is “about as secure as leaving your doors open.” If someone gets access to the network, they could potentially hack into other computers connected to UNC-1. UNC-Secure solves this. When accessing the network for the first time, ITS uses a Web-based application to grant access. An Onyen is required. Only computers that have gone through that configuration have access to the network. ITS tried to make the new system as simple, secure and cost-effective as possible. They succeeded. Linking to UNC-Secure for the first time is markedly simple. Wireless users go to https:// xpressconnect.unc.edu. And then a Web application for Windows, Mac OSX, or iPhone and iPod Touch sets up the connection to UNC-Secure. Users only have to enter their Onyen and password. ITS is still working on a way to connect BlNoackBerrys and Linux to the network. Streck said UNC-Secure is still a pilot and that users should contact him — not the ITS Help Desk — with questions and comments. But students who want to help ITS smooth out bugs and a safer Wi-Fi connection should connect to UNC-Secure now. It’s simple and demonstrates the ITS staff ’s commitment to cyber security at the University.
Playing men’s game in carmichael might help
TO THE EDITOR: I agree with both the editorial and the letters to the editor of last week that it is very sad that our students are forced to sit in the “nosebleed” seats (“Put ticket policy in hot seat,” Jan. 20, and “Margolis is right; ticket policy must favor students,” Jan. 22). However, I see the athletic department’s side of this problem as well. The “elderly alumni sitting with their grandchildren” are some of the University’s most generous donors. Without them, we would not have such great facilities as the Smith Center or Kenan Stadium or other academic luxuries found on campus. Therefore, it would be unwise for the athletic department to uproot these fans from their seats. A possible way to help the athletic department find a plan for a better atmosphere and still keep the giving alumni happy would be to hold one game a year in Carmichael Gymnasium. Our agricultural rivals in Raleigh hold an annual game in historic Reynolds Coliseum. This annual game has both a sellout crowd and a great atmosphere for both the players and fans. Carmichael is smaller than the Smith Center but would allow the students to encircle the court and be closer to the action. This might even convince the Rams Club donors to move a few rows back and let the students into their rightful place. Robert Fleming Sophomore Economics
e-book solution not as clear-cut as suggested
TO THE EDITOR: The column in Friday’s edition of The Daily Tar Heel (“Download this,” Jan. 22) extolling the virtues of e-books missed some very crucial points. While e-textbooks might be cheaper up front, there are a lot of problems with the licensing of these books. Amazon has shown in the past that even if you pay for the books, you don’t necessarily own them. Amazon forcibly removed George Orwell books from Kindles because of a licensing dispute. Other routes are even less attractive. CourseSmart e-books only give a limited license to use their texts. Once the course is over, they take the text back so that a student can never again use it without paying for another license. There is no resell value. There is only the student, left with nothing. Not only that, but students have to download CourseSmart’s own software to even open the e-books. New editions that come out every semester will not become a thing of the past with e-books. The publisher will simply sell the new edition in e-book form, without any student recourse to sell older editions other than (ironically) Amazon. E-books have great potential, but don’t be fooled into thinking they are the beginning of the end for textbook publishers. John O’Connor Junior Political Science
nformation Technology Services is piloting a new, more secure wireless network — and students should give it a try. UNC-Secure is a new Wi-Fi network that will eventually replace UNC-1. It was introduced this month and is a much safer network. ITS hasn’t advertised the network because the department wants to ease students into it, get feedback and resolve any bugs over the next year. The new system makes it more difficult for unauthorized users to access the network. Both UNC-1 and UNCSecure require an Onyen to get Internet access. But anybody who figures out the wireless network password under the old system can access other computers on the

Blood shortages or not, donating is important
extended their operating hours to lure a few more donors in. The blood supply has increased somewhat in the last two weeks but is still critically low. It is time for students to take action. Giving blood is easy. The whole process takes about 20 minutes. For first timers, the process is very simple. After filling out a short form, a volunteer then asks you a couple of questions and gives you a mini-physical. Finally a tube is attached to your arm, and you pump out about a pint of blood. The blood shortage has not come from a lack of opportunities to donate. Chapel Hill is filled with fraternities, sororities, athletic teams and other student organizations that are constantly running blood drives. And if there is not an oncampus blood drive, you can always visit to the local Red Cross chapter at 101 Ephesus Road. So the next time you have a spare hour instead of watching YouTube videos or Facebook stalking, visit a blood drive or donation center. Donate today because you never know when you will be the one in need.

guaranteed to have their work displayed in the gallery, Stancil said. They also must work a certain number of hours in the gallery. About 25 founding artists and others will be able to show their artwork. Stancil said members will be able to vote on gallery decisions, giving them the power to act as the gallery’s board of directors. The gallery has two years to pay back its $40,000 loan to the town in order to continue the fund, Stancil said. The money will then be used to continue jump-starting local small arts businesses. In addition to member fees, the gallery will receive a commission from sold artwork. “We don’t think the gallery will have any trouble paying this money back,” Stancil said. The gallery is part of a plan to continue to revitalize downtown Chapel Hill, Rich said. “They see the gallery as a catalyst for a new profile of Franklin Street,” she said. “We are hoping that more sophisticated restaurants and shopping will come as a result.” But Jeff Girman, owner of Chapel Hill art gallery Studio 91, said even if the gallery is able to sustain itself, it’s not likely to make much money. “It isn’t profitable right now,” Girman said, adding that several art galleries in the area have already closed. “We are only able to tread through this because we are a wine bar in addition to being an art gallery.” But Rich said she is undeterred by the poor economic climate. “We are all betting that even in the current economy the gallery will be successful,” she said. “Chapel Hill is a fairly well-to-do community and attracts over two million visitors a year.” Jane Tyndall, owner of Tyndall Galleries, said her gallery is set to close Saturday. But in spite of that, she thinks FRANK will be a success in Chapel Hill. “Many experienced artists are involved in this project,” she said. “Even with the downturn in the economy, the key to success in the art world is knowledge of the industry.” Contact the City Editor at email@example.com.
social budget on the project. Including the social budget, the fraternity has raised more than $64,000 for the project, which will cost at least $75,000 to complete. A partnership with Bank of America Corp. footed $25,000 of the bill — a donation facilitated by a freshman fraternity member with family ties to Hugh McColl, former chairman and CEO of that bank. Incoming DKE President Davis Willingham said the fraternity likely will exceed its commitment to raise $75,000, and has set a new goal of $100,000, which it plans to meet with philanthropy events. UNC administrators, alumni and the national Delta Kappa Epsilon organization have expressed that the project represents a positive direction for the fraternity, which is working to improve its image. The house — off of Purefoy Drive in the Rogers Road community — will go to Lion and Zar Ree Wei, ages 42 and 39, Burmese immigrants working as UNC housekeepers. Until the house is completed, they will continue to live in a two-bedroom apartment with their six children, ages 15, 14, 11, 8, 6 and 2. “The fact that six children will be able to sleep in a comfortable house instead of an apartment, I’m sure that would have meant a lot to Courtland,” said fraternity member Billy Armfield. “It’s very true to what he would have wanted.” Contact the University Editor at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Rich said they must take into account the added traffic a Walgreens would bring and must keep the turns directly into the parking lot. “There will be more cars going into Walgreens than into the BP,” she said. “It makes a bad intersection worse.” Rich said that regardless of whether a Walgreens moves into the location, the town needs to look at making the intersection safer. “It’s a constant balancing act between growth and cars,” Rich said.

median proposed to counter concerns
The property owner of Caribou Coffee, which has entrances on both sides of the intersection, sent the town a letter expressing concerns that the proposed median would discourage turns into the parking lot. Diane McArthur, a Caribou Coffee customer, called the proposed median a terrible idea. “I do think it’s wrong to hurt the business of an established business in order to help a new business,” she said. Jessica Page, a Caribou Coffee employee, said the biggest problem is the need for pedestrian safety. “People are really rude, and you can never cross,” Page said. “People go way too fast.” Page said customers complain because they have to park across the street from Caribou and they can’t cross the street. “I’ll park where I’m not supposed to just because it’s so hard to cross,” Page said. The median would act as a resting place for pedestrians if they couldn’t cross in time, Rich said. The medians would help regulate the flow of traffic by eliminating the opportunity to turn at businesses along that stretch.

unC men handed ﬁrst loss
BY KellY Parsons
Men’s swiMMing Virginia It was a day of numbers for the No. 14 North Carolina men’s swim UNC
team. Against No. 8 Virginia, UNC swimmers racked up 23 season best times, nabbed four NCAA consideration cuts and as a team shaved more than 27 seconds off of 2009-10 season bests. But a particular digit stood out after Saturday’s rivalry meet — the one in the loss column. “We can’t afford to make the choice of having (the loss) be a setback,” coach Rich DeSelm said. “It can be a disappointment, but we’ve got to learn from it and use it to find how we can be better.” The UNC men’s team went into Saturday’s matchup a perfect 8-0 (4-0 in the ACC). Though the Tar Heels only won five of 16 events, the Cavaliers were not able to run away with it. Depth allowed UNC to secure second and third place in five events, and the Tar Heels delivered the one-two punch twice.

Tommy Wyher led UNC with a pair of wins in the 100-yard butterfly and 100-yard backstroke. Freshman Tom Luchsinger followed suit, finishing first in the 200-yard butterfly, cutting 1.05 seconds off his career best. “I looked up at the scoreboard and to see your personal best is always an awesome feeling,” Luchsinger said. “Not only to have that, but then to have my teammates behind me yelling and screaming, it was just icing on the cake.” Luchsinger was not the only freshman to make waves. In her second-place finish in the 100-yard backstroke, Carly Smith achieved a career best of 53.51, breaking both the 10-year-old pool and school records. Smith swam season bests in all four of her events, more than any other Tar Heel in the meet. “They’re our biggest competition, and so I just had that in the
back of my mind,” Smith said. “I knew today was the day and it was time to lay it down on the line.” Despite Smith’s standout performance, the No. 15 North Carolina women’s team fell to No. 11 Virginia. Laura Moriarty had one of the women’s five event wins in the 200yard breaststroke, winning by more than a second and qualifying for a NCAA consideration. Moriarty also took second place in the 200-yard butterfly, earning her second consideration cut of the day. The Tar Heels will take on Virginia again in late February at the ACC Championships. And UNC’s swimmers are looking forward to a rematch. “(The loss will) definitely serve as motivation,” Luchsinger said. “We are a bunch of guys that hate to lose.”
Contact the Sports Editor at tommy wyher led the UNC men with two individual victories saturday, one in the 100-yard butterfly firstname.lastname@example.org. and the other in the 100-yard backstroke. the UNC men’s team lost 168-132, its first loss of the season.

and grabbed a single rebound more than the Tigers. “We were focused. I don’t think we lost intensity, just it’s composure that keeps you staying with your offense, staying with what’s been successful and not trying to get out of that,” McKinney said. “And I felt like we tried to get out of that near the end.” Clemson just could not make enough shots to keep up with the Tar Heels. For the game, Clemson shot 39 percent from the field, and 31 percent from the free throw line. At the other end, UNC had no trouble, shooting 57 percent in the second half and 53 percent for the game. That is a drastic turnaround from “We did a great job for about 35 minutes last year at our place on DeGraffenreid, not letting her get to that right side and shoot layups,” McKinney said. “And right down the stretch she got there, and Lucas hits two threes.” Lucas didn’t log any assists Friday night, but she did contribute to a few scores for DeGraffenreid. In the first half, Lucas missed a free throw, but DeGraffenreid ran from the three-point line knowing the previous three games — losses to Virginia Tech and Connecticut and a win against Maryland — in which the team shot 68-for-216, or 31 percent from the field. The team’s halfcourt offense was more fluid than it had been in three games, and that manifested itself in the highest number of assists, 13, since the January 6 game against Georgia Tech. “(Chay Shegog) was looking for the cutter — and we did hit that a couple times,” Hatchell said. “We’ve got to develop our offense from the inside-out when we don’t have a fast break, and that’s what we’re trying to do.” Contact the Sports Editor at firstname.lastname@example.org. exactly where the ball would be and scored an uncontested two points. She would later force a Clemson turnover in the second half that led to a fast break layup for DeGraffenreid. “We need to embrace the fact that we do need to step up in close games,” Lucas said. “We need to communicate the entire game, and also with the team.” Contact the Sports Editor at email@example.com.

captain Andrew Crone. Donato, who was named to the ACC all-conference squad and the All-America squad last season, said he will strive for the same accolades this year. In his junior year, he finished the season in the top 20 in singles and advanced to the semifinals of the men’s singles draw at the NCAA tournament. He already has a goal in mind this season. “It’s obvious, a win in the championship,” Donato said. Although NCCU and Presbyterian didn’t put up much of a fight, UNC will have tough matches this season. They face off against several ranked foes, including rival Virginia, who in the NCAA tournament last season sent the Tar Heels home. Contact the Sports Editor at firstname.lastname@example.org.

10-point North Carolina advantage and staked the Tigers to a one point lead. From there, the wheels came off for Clemson. “They made a great push, but I really felt like we lost a little bit of composure,” Clemson coach Cristy McKinney said. “We made a couple of bad decisions, a couple of quick shots and turnovers, and they really exploited them.” McKinney’s squad effectively neutralized both of North Carolina’s calling cards — fast breaks and rebounding — and that’s why they were in a position to win with seven minutes remaining. The Tar Heels only scored 14 fast break points,

The match was a tune-up for UNC, who looks this season to achieve similar success as it had last year, when the Tar Heels advanced to the round of 32 in the NCAA tournament. “I think we should do a whole lot better this season,” Donato said. “We have a stacked team with tremendous potential. “I believe that this is the best team I’ve seen in my four years playing here, and that’s saying something, as we made it to the final four when I was a sophomore.” After the match, Donato was pleased with the impressive performance and hopes that it will set a positive tone for the rest of the tennis season. Donato will lead the No. 28 Tar Heels this season alongside senior
While all of the women’s team’s sprinters were resting, freshman Lea Anna Godwin took third in the 800-meter at 2:18.04. Brown and Keene marked the only first-place finishes for the Tar Heels, but Craddock remains hopeful for the rest of the season. “I think sometimes coaches and athletes begin to want to win so much that you start seeing things that aren’t really there,” Craddock said. “Realistically, with our men and women, we’ve got enough talent to get back to winning some championships like we’ve done in the past. I think we’re good enough to be in the top 10 of the NCAA.” Contact the Sports Editor at email@example.com.
DeGraffenreid, who is tied for first in the ACC in assists per game, knocked Clemson out when she drove down the lane and drew the wing defender toward the paint. That left Lucas clear to receive the chest pass and drain a three and her game-high 20th point. Her performance brought up memories of last season for Clemson coach Cristy McKinney.

It took the North Carolina women’s basketball team seven minutes to turn a barnburner into a blowout Friday night. Down by a point with 7:08 left in the second half, North Carolina rattled off a 23-4 run to defeat Clemson 79-61. The key to the run was defense. The Tigers’ offense ground to a halt amidst a sea of turnovers and missed shots, which UNC was able to convert into points on the other end. “We kept switching it up,” UNC coach Sylvia Hatchell said. “We did a little bit of zone, then we showed zone and went man, and then we trapped on the wing. “We threw a bunch of stuff out there down the stretch and I think all of (the players) did a better job of not letting them drive down to the paint.” Bolstered by two clutch threes from Italee Lucas and a usual late-game surge from Cetera DeGraffenreid, the Tar Heels (15-3, 3-1) pulled away. DeGraffenreid scored eight of her 12 points down the stretch. Lucas herself scored a game-high 20 to pace UNC off the bench. “We need to embrace the fact that we do need to step up in close games,” Lucas said. “We need to communicate the entire game, and also with the team.” The UNC run came in response to a big Clemson (9-11, 0-4) streak that erased a
The official stats show Clemson’s Keyrra Gillespie had eight assists Friday night against North Carolina. To UNC’s Italee Lucas, she had nine. Five minutes into the second half, Gillespie leapt out of bounds to save a loose ball under the UNC basket but threw it into the hands of the junior guard, who scored the easy layup. Lucas pointed to Gillespie, thanking the passer for the assist. “Yeah, that was a nice assist,” Lucas said. “That was a pass I really appreciated. She got the point, too.” Lucas should have pointed her finger to teammate Cetera DeGraffenreid. DeGraffenreid, who racked up a teamhigh six assists on the night, dished three crucial passes to Lucas in the final four minutes of the game to clinch the win. North Carolina held a one-point lead with six minutes remaining in the game against a team on a six-game losing skid. Lucas and DeGraffenreid took over at that point, accounting for seven of UNC’s next eight scores en route to a decisive 19-2 run. After making two free throws, DeGraffenreid went coast-to-coast on the Tar Heels’ next possession. She then found Lucas two consecutive times for scores, one on a wide-open three and the other a nolook pass for an easy layup. “Whenever it got really tight in there, these two took over, which we needed them to do,” UNC coach Sylvia Hatchell said. “We actually met and talked today about them being the leaders of this team.”

The UNC men’s tennis team began its season with two dominant home victories against Presbyterian College and North Carolina Central University. The doubleheader began in the afternoon with a 7-0 win over Presbyterian and was followed in the evening by a similar 7-0 sweep of the Eagles from North Carolina Central in what turned out to be a relatively smooth day of tennis for the Tar Heels.
The majority of the matches on Sunday were finished in straight sets. UNC senior Clay Donato had two dominant single wins in straight sets and another two strong wins in doubles, where he and his partner Stefan Hardy have performed exceptionally well this season. “It’s good to play a couple of easier matches before we play our bigger matches,” Donato said. “Tonight, we played to our potential, and that is what we were expecting.” Donato’s day ended the same way it began.
He and Hardy crushed Presbyterian’s Matthew Martin and Ivan Ho in Donato’s first match of the day, and he closed out North Carolina Central’s Jack Waissen 6-2, 6-0 in his fourth and final time on the court.

Fresh off the blocks in his first 60-meter dash, North Carolina’s Zach Brown was hoping to make his transition from outside linebacker on the football team to sprinter a smooth one. And then he tripped. But Brown didn’t let the change in stride stop him. The 230-pound sprinter powered through the stumble to win first-place in 6.73 seconds at Saturday’s Kent Taylor UNC Classic in Chapel Hill. “All the guys from the football team, a good 30, were out there,” Brown said. “I knew they were going to clown me if I had lost. So I was like ‘I gotta win. I gotta get out. I gotta get out.’” Brown was the first of four football playe r s t o m a ke Zach Brown an appearance won his first in a track and race for UNC field meet after Saturday in the practicing only 60-meter dash. two times with the team. “I was just like, ‘Coach, put me in the meet this weekend, man! I’m ready, trust me, I’m ready. I know I’m fast. I’m going to get out there. I’m going to win, baby. I’m ready,’” Brown said. Two freshmen, running back Hunter Furr and defensive back Curtis Campbell, will both be competing in indoor events next weekend at the Dick Taylor Carolina Classic, while freshman wide receiver Jheranie Boyd is waiting until outdoor season to make his start, Brown said.

“All of them ran in high school,” coach Dennis Craddock said. “They’re very much track-oriented, and I think the 60 (meter dash) will suit their figures better because it’s so short. Right now, coming off football, they’re not in really great shape, but they’re in shape enough to run a couple of good 60s.” N.C. State was the only other ACC team present at Saturday’s Classic. The majority of the team’s most experienced athletes rested up for next weekend’s more demanding two-day meet and did not compete. Sophomore Kwabena Keene had a standout performance in the shot put, throwing 17.53 meters for a firstplace finish — a length well over his personal best of 16.84 meters. “We all trained really hard for the meet,” Keene said. “Seeing success this early in the season is a step in the right direction. In high school I did a different technique than I do now, so last year was a rebuilding year for me. We’re all trying to make it to Nationals.” For the distance team, assistant coach Peter Watson had his runners racing longer events before moving them down into their respective events, Craddock said. Senior Evan Watchempino clocked in at 8:28.33 in the 3,000-meter for a second-place finish.
