Cold weather and rain didn’t dampen Chapel Hill’s annual Festifall.

Unseasonably chilly temperatures and rain couldn’t stop local residents from coming out to Chapel Hill’s 40th annual Festifall on Sunday. Wes Tilghman, Chapel Hill
supervisor of festivals and community events, organized the annual gathering of local art, music and food — a fall staple in Chapel Hill. “Each year, you always try to improve. This year, we are trying to incorporate more interactions with nature,” Tilghman said. He anticipated this year’s Festifall to be the most lively to
date. The event was expected to accommodate more than 100 artists and attract more than 15,000 locals and visitors to the blockedoff section of West Franklin Street. It lasted from about noon to 6 p.m. While rain hampered early attendance of both vendors and guests, Michael Konvicka was one vendor who braved the weather. Konvicka, a Durham resident, sold hand-dyed garments at his Terra Clotha booth in his second year as a Festifall vendor.
He said he noticed the weather’s impact on attendance. “Some fellow vendors might not even show up today due to the weather, but I like to come to Chapel Hill,” he said early Sunday afternoon. “It is always a good crowd.” Despite the weather, about 80 vendors lined the street, offering local art, food and community safety information. “We have worked to rebrand the event and create new ideas and thoughts to gain more local
and even regional attendance,” Tilghman said. Nikki Roscoe, a public policy major at UNC who attended the event to promote UNC Dance Marathon, said she enjoyed the performances she saw. Local groups gave live music, dance and aerial art performances, some of which included an acrobatic style called flow art. “The flow art is the best. There is no reason for me to get a degree

UNC is in the market for a new leader — and the market is getting crowded. Six large public universities are searching for new presidents at the same time the University is conducting its chancellor search. UNC is one of 13 public universities in the Association of American Universities that has lost its president in the past 18 months. AAU spokesman Barry Toiv said these universities might be considering the same candidates. “There are certain individuals in
demand,” Toiv said. “But competition doesn’t always make it harder to find someone — it will always be a painstaking process.” Wade Hargrove, chairman of the UNC Board of Trustees and of the University’s chancellor search committee, said competition from other universities could be a challenge. “It certainly is an issue,” Hargrove said. “But to what extent, it’s difficult to calibrate right now.” Jan Greenwood, president of the executive search firm Greenwood/ Asher & Associates Inc., said competition is more likely to occur among similar universities. The University has not yet chosen a search firm. “AAU members could be competitors,” Greenwood said, “or if they are both flagship universities.”

Smoking ban has potential to a≠ect smoke shops’ business
Orange County has proposed a smoking ban for public places.
By Rachel Butt
When Expressions owner Angela Lanza first heard of the proposed ban on smoking in public places in Orange County, she was not surprised.
But she is against the ban, and said there is no need to limit smoking more than it already has been. “There are better things to worry (about) other than smoking outside,” said Lanza, whose East Franklin Street store sells tobacco products. The ban was proposed by the Orange County Board of Health in September, and aims to extend an existing ban on smoking to cover any public place in the county. If implemented, smokers could not light up anymore in places such
as parks, government grounds, sidewalks and retail stores. Despite the proposed ban, most tobacco shop workers are confident their businesses will not suffer. “Customers like socializing and smoking their hand-rolled tobacco in the little area outside our door,” Lanza said. “I’m sure they will still come and hang out just the same.” R.J. Crumpler, manager of the West Franklin Street store Hazmat, said he does not feel pressured by
the ban. “I’m not worried about business because most of what we’re selling is for in-home use,” Crumpler said. Larry Webster, who works at Smoke Rings and said he likes to smoke, agreed. “If the ban’s underlying tone is gonna get rid of smoke shops, I don’t believe that it’s gonna fly,” he said. “I’d definitely want my big name on capital letters on the front page to petition the ban.” Stacy Shelp, spokeswoman
for the Orange County Health Department, said the ban would be implemented after educating the public about the new rule, posting signs, removing ashtrays and coordinating with different enforcement agencies. According to a recent survey of local officials by the board, more than 90 percent of respondents support the proposed ban. On Oct. 24, the board will discuss

esame Street is having a moment. The educational PBS show — the longest running kids show, now in its 43rd season — was trending after Republican candidate Mitt Romney invoked Big Bird in last week’s debate. His comment sparked a wave of responses, including a ridiculous column from the National Review. Columnist Mark Steyn thought it logical to link the teachings of Sesame Street — you know, “A is for apple,” “Today’s show brought to you by the number 8,” all that — to the murder of the U.S. ambassador in Benghazi, Libya. He claims the show raises viewers to believe monsters don’t exist. Steyn’s absurd negativity earns him Oscar the Grouch’s trash can.

ITS proposes fee increase for surﬁng
The increase would cover students’ Internet usage for nonacademic work.
By Andrew Bauer
A proposed $9.84 Student Technology Fee increase could change the way Information Technology Services funds itself. The fee would take into account how often students use their computers to surf sites such as Facebook and YouTube instead of doing academic work, and would allocate the funds respectively. At Friday’s student fee advisory subcommittee meeting, ITS Communication Technologies requested a student technology fee that will cover students’ personal usage — approximated by ITS at 31 percent of all technological activity. A decision on the fee has not been
made, and it will be discussed at this Friday’s meeting. Vice Chancellor for Information Technology Larry Conrad said ITS has not needed to make this type of funding change before. “In the past, ITS has gone to the budget committee asking for onetime allocations of funds.” But budget cuts have changed the landscape. “The last few years this hasn’t been the case. We haven’t received those investments,” Conrad said. In past years building maintenance has been deferred in the interest of cost saving. On Friday, Conrad described 3,000 building switches throughout campus, instrumental to the technological network, that will be obsolete if not properly funded. “We feel like going to the budget committee and asking for leftover millions to upgrade the campus network is not going to be a winning strategy going forward,” he said.
“We’re putting forward a comprehensive funding model that will cover maintenance, operation and life cycle costs,” he said. The model divides technology use on campus into 69 percent academic use, which will be funded by central academic funds, and 31 percent personal use, which the fee will cover. A key philosophical change in the funding model, however, might detrimentally affect graduate students who are currently under the employment of their departments. These students will have to pay their student share and might indirectly have to fund their department’s employment share as well. Michael Bertucci, president of the Graduate and Professional Student Federation and a member of the committee, was apprehensive about the logistics of the fee increase. “I just do not want to be double counted. It makes me not want to make a decision about this issue in our meeting,” he said.
Members struggled to come up with a solution, given that the fees are constructed to be distributed fairly between students and departments. Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs Winston Crisp said if they alter the count to only include graduate students once, every student will have to pay a higher fee. “Grad students might argue that it’s fair for undergraduates to pay a higher number, but the number is the number,” Crisp said. While the fee increase’s fate remains in question until the subcommittee’s next meeting, Bertucci has indicated his discomfort by relating it to another contentious fee that was approved earlier this year. “I’m not completely comfortable with how this is being fixed,” Bertucci said. “Like the transit fee, I don’t know how this can be fixed.” Contact the desk editor at email@example.com.

durham-based musician plays on franklin Street
By Gayatri Surendranathan
David Bass has been jazzing up city streets with the help of his trusty fiddle for 28 years. Bass, who lives in Durham, stopped by Chapel Hill after his fencing practice Thursday to play in front of Julian’s on East Franklin Street for about an hour. He taught himself to play the violin as a child, after taking drum and mandolin lessons. He last played in an orchestra when he was in middle school. “I’ve been playing on the streets since I was 18,” Bass said. “I’ve played in New York City and Boston, but now I’m here in North Carolina.” Despite growing up in Ohio, Bass said he was most inspired by the Southern mountain music tradition. “I’ve studied a handful of musicians from North Carolina, and I especially like
the ones from Mount Airy,” Bass said. He doesn’t use sheet music, preferring to improvise his performances. “There’s written music, but if you played it you would be way off in the wrong direction,” he said. “I play by ear.” Bass said he has an extensive collection of mountain music — six to eight gigabytes on his iPod — that he listens to for inspiration. He said he enjoys playing on streets for a public audience because it is free, spontaneous art. “Well, right now it’s completely free,” he said, gesturing to his empty violin case. “It would be more lucrative for me if I went back to Boston or New York — even Asheville would be pretty hip.” But his wife attends graduate school classes in the area, and he watches his two children during the day. He said he has not experienced any physical harassment in his almost three decades of street performing in different
metropolises. “I’m not playing in any dark alleys,” he said. “There’s usually lots of positive crowd interaction, and there’s always a certain amount of respect.” But last year, he had a tiff with a homeless man on Franklin Street who felt Bass was invading his space to panhandle. This sort of interaction is rare in Chapel Hill, said Chapel Hill Downtown Partnership Executive Director Meg McGurk. “Street performers add to the environment and create a great sense of place,” she said. Chapel Hill visitor and N.C. State University junior Jeanna Young said she values street performances. “They encourage people to notice their surroundings and connect with their environment,” Young said.

Changes to come to honor Court
In some cases, not all information is released to the honor system.
By Hunter Toro
Students arrested by Chapel Hill police could soon see a new way in which their potential Honor Code violations are handled by the Honor Court. In a meeting Friday, members of the Faculty Honor System Advisory Committee discussed ways students might be charged by the Honor Court for conduct issues brought against them by Chapel Hill police in cases where not all information is released to the University. Authorities will often withhold factual information regard-
ing student arrests when there is a potential that the court procedure could be compromised due to the defendant having access to privileged information. For instance, police might not always release information regarding a student’s behavior or blood alcohol level when he or she has been arrested for driving while intoxicated. The committee members all agreed these ambiguous charges can leave the Honor Court in a difficult position. “Should we just defer to the fact that the police charged a student with this? Is this enough to warrant a charge decision? Or do we need further information?” Student Attorney General Amanda Claire Grayson said. Committee members voiced differing views on the subject. Deputy Student Attorney
General Henry Ross said he thinks the Honor Court should charge students with Honor Code violations even with a lack of information because authorities have set procedures for arrest. But Erik Hunter, judicial programs officer for UNC’s honor system, said he thinks getting all details from the police before charging a student with an Honor Court violation is necessary. “They are looking for us to take action, as 90 percent of the time the sentences will be reduced to something else — but it’s not our job to run the criminal justice system,” he said. Although some committee members said having the arresting officer testify in Honor Court is unnecessary, chairwoman Donna LeFebvre disagreed. “If the officer were not
brought in, it would violate a student’s right to review evidence and cross-examine a witness,” LeFebvre said. Timeliness has also become an issue in Honor Court hearings, whether due to a backlog in criminal court hearings or the student making the choice to delay the case. In addition to causing backlogging within the Honor Court, students with unresolved Honor Court charges against them can’t graduate or have their transcripts released. The committee hopes to set a policy to resolve these issues next month. “We have to give accused students the benefit of the doubt,” Hunter said. Contact the desk editor at email@example.com.
After five and a half years, The Carrboro Citizen published its last issue on Thursday. Publisher Robert Dickson wrote in a Thursday column, “The Citizen bids adieu,” that he was forced to stop publication after efforts to sell the paper proved unsuccessful. Dickson wrote in a column in August that he would be forced to stop publishing if he couldn’t find a buyer, but readers said they did not know Thursday’s paper would be the last. Susan Dickson, editor-in-chief of the Citizen, said that although buyers expressed interest, it’s a difficult time for newspapers. “With this, you really need the right person to come along,” she said. “And we just didn’t find that person.” But Carrboro isn’t quite ready to give up its only local paper, with some citizens proposing to continue it in a nonprofit structure. In 2012, the Citizen printed 7,500 copies every week, said Susan Dickson. More than 90 percent of those were picked up. She said the Citizen decided not to move to an online-only publication because its physical product was more popular than online, and it would have seen a decreased revenue stream from advertising. Robert Dickson said in his column that he first vocalized his idea for the paper in Jock Lauterer’s community journalism class at UNC in 2006. Robert Dickson was visiting the class as a guest lecturer, said Lauterer, a senior lecturer in the School of Journalism and Mass Communication at UNC and director of the Carolina Community Media Project. “I asked him, ‘Why do you live in Carrboro?’ and he said, ‘Because it’s cool,’” Lauterer said. “Then he muttered, almost under his breath, ‘And because Carrboro needs a newspaper.’” Lauterer said the rest is history — Robert Dickson started publishing the Citizen six months later. Lauterer wrote a column called “A Thousand Words” for the paper for the last three years. “I think in the last five and a half years, there has been a growth in Carrboro’s sense of self and identity,” Lauterer said. “I attribute that to The Carrboro Citizen.” Although the Citizen has stopped publishing, Susan Dickson said she has heard Carrboro residents discuss efforts to revive the paper. Carrboro Alderman Randee HavenO’Donnell requested that those interested in funding, publishing or editing contact her. “The Citizen has conveyed the heart and soul of our hometown,” she said in a comment on Robert Dickson’s final column. “The loss of her voice has brought a small group of folks together with interest in how to move forward.” Susan Dickson said a nonprofit structure would be a good way for the Citizen to continue publishing. “This paper belongs to the community,” she said. “I think a nonprofit mindset would be great for the paper, because then it would really belong to the community.” Lauterer hopes the Citizen is not finished yet. “This newspaper is too important to Carrboro to be allowed to fail,” he said. “I’d like to hold out hope that the fat lady hasn’t sung yet.” Contact the desk editor at firstname.lastname@example.org. awareness during Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Orange County EMS employees will wear pink shirts all month long.

lack women are dying of breast cancer at a rate higher than any other racial group. White women older than 45 years have a higher incidence of breast cancer, meaning they are diagnosed more often, but black women are less likely to survive. According to the American Cancer Society, the five-year survival rate of AfricanAmerican women is 78 percent, in comparison to the survival rate of white women, which is 90 percent. Breast cancer is the most common type of cancer contracted by African-American women. During October, National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, it’s important to call attention to not only general research, preventive practices and cancer care, but also to the disparities that exist for black women who confront this deadly disease. Black women are at higher risk of being diagnosed with breast cancer at a later stage with a more aggressive form of the disease in comparison to other racial groups. Genetic differences might leave black women at particular risk of developing triple-negative cancers. This subtype of breast cancer is more aggressive and associated with shorter survival rates. Low socioeconomic status and limited access to health care affect a woman’s chance of being screened. Financial factors that impede a woman’s access to mammograms — which are vital to breast cancer detection — are obstacles that need to be addressed in order to see a real reduction in the disparity in the survival rates of black women with breast cancer. Cancer screenings should be readily available to all women to ensure that if cancerous tumors exist, they are caught early. Screening methods must also improve, and strides must be made in detection technology. Black women tend to have denser breasts than white women, which can make mammogram results more difficult to decipher. This year, 226,870 women are expected to be diagnosed with breast cancer in the United States. More than 7,000 of those women will reside in North Carolina, a state that’s almost a quarter African-American. It’s important that resources exist in this state for African-American women who need specialized breast cancer preventive care, treatment and support. Groups like the Triangle chapter of the national African-American breast cancer survivors organization Sisters Network, do their part to offer guidance, programming and moral support for black women. But even more can be done to eliminate the survival gap that exists between black and white women with breast cancer. In addition to utilizing preventive measures such as selfexamination, regular mammograms, limited alcohol intake, balanced diet and exercise, black women must become staunch advocates for their own health care. Women should take time to become informed about breast cancer detection, treatment and support.

Criticism of J. Cole’s lyrics was misplaced
TO THE EDITOR: In his letter to the editor concerning North Carolina rapper J. Cole’s selection as the homecoming performer, Josh Orol made several misinformed statements. While Orol’s message regarding the sexualization of females in hip-hop is admirable, his criticisms are quite misplaced. To the casual listener, J. Cole’s lyrics appear typical of the hip-hop genre; they seem sexist and disrespectful. However, a closer listen tells a different story. J. Cole’s message is one of empowerment, rather than detraction, concerning females. As evidence, one need not look further than “Lights Please” (which, incidentally, is the tune that got J. Cole signed by Jay-Z). “Lights Please” chronicles the struggles of a male seeking to inspire the women in his life to rise above their circumstances “I try to show her about the world and who we really are / But all she ever want me to do is unhook her bra.” Moreover, like many of J. Cole’s songs, the lyrics go on to discourage absentee fathers: “Ain’t it shameful how (men) blame hoes for givin’ birth / To a baby that took two to make / Coward (ni--a), you’re a fake / How you gonna look in your son’s face and turn your back?” The underlying theme here is one severely missing in the hip-hop genre. Thus, it is fundamentally shortsighted to dismiss his lyrics as sexist simply on the basis of referring to women as “hoes.” In order to effectively convey his message, J. Cole simply uses language prominent in hip-hop today. Thus, rather than repudiate him, Orol should take a second listen and be proud to call J. Cole a Tar Heel. Jamie Starling ’14 Political science
System plan needs input
he UNC-system strategic planning committee, the body responsible for mapping out the system’s development during the next five years, should work to further include student and faculty opinions from across the state. In particular, the committee needs to organize structured forums where faculty, students and other community members can give their feedback. The group has said it is open to hearing these concerns, yet it has not made any immediate effort to provide a forum where
The committee should seek student and faculty input.
people can do just that. Students and faculty met Oct. 1 to discuss the plan and their hopes that the committee will hold forums for discussion that they could attend. The members of the committee should engage those who are interested in the same way as the UNC Tomorrow initiative — which organized surveys and forums all across the state, reaching more than 10,000 people for input. This is the same strategy the system’s previous five-year committee used. These forums benefit both the members of the committee and students and faculty by helping identify ways the system can be improved. A rushed process is
another reason for concern, and even more so why student and faculty input is needed. Rushing the process to design the five-year plan poses risks and necessarily means less opportunities to hear from stakeholders. As this University faces scrutiny with leadership transitions and academic and athletic scandals, input from UNC-CH stakeholders in the system’s vision for the next five years becomes all the more important. If the UNC system wants to remain one of the best systems in the country, the planning committee must follow through with its commitment to direct student and faculty involvement.
This is an important decision because Orange County is projected to have substantial population increases in the next few decades, and this tax could help encourage smart, sustainable growth with environmental and economic development benefits. Travel demands on already congested Triangle roads will likely double from 2010 to 2035. UNC students will comprise a significant portion of the electorate in Orange County in 2012. That’s why the Roosevelt Institute, student government and Power Vote are hosting a public forum with local leaders at UNC today at 7 p.m. in Howell 104. What exactly will the referendum pay for? How will the half-cent sales tax work logistically? Is this necessary for our transit future in the Triangle? We’re encouraging the student body to come out tonight, ask these kinds of questions and get informed about this important election issue. Haley McLoud ’14 History
there are bigger issues than sex life
TO THE EDITOR: A lot has happened this semester at UNC. The football team has been swimming in a plethora of investigations, our charismatic chancellor resigned, and we recently took home the title of being the number one school in … sex life. We definitely have had a lot of front-page-worthy news brewing in Chapel Hill in the first few weeks of school. But does our success in the banging department truly merit being plastered on the front of Friday’s edition of The Daily Tar Heel? Seeing that The Daily Tar Heel is a vital representation of the University’s image, I frown upon the editorial staff that decided to print this recent news and picture on the front of last Friday’s issue. It defames the image of our wonderful school. Last year, my 15-yearold brother came to visit me for a few days, and I encouraged him to pick up a newspaper. It just so happened to be the day the front page article was about people doing it in Davis. After highlighting our strong academic reputation and the long hours students spend in the library, he began to question my study habits. Daily Tar Heel staff, I appreciate the work you do in making one of the finest college newspapers in the nation, but in the future, try not to screw up like this again. Garrett Pedersen ’15 Education
Officials shouldn’t imply only student athletes “cluster.”
nother course at UNC is being scrutinized for the amount of student athletes enrolled and the level of difficulty; this time, according to The (Raleigh) News & Observer, it is a naval sciences course. Officials should be cautious during the ongoing investigation to avoid the implication that crowding the same classes is prevalent only among student athletes. “Clustering,” or the enrollment of one demographic or group in certain classes, is common to
many student groups. Obviously, the academic scandal that rocked the Department of African and Afro-American Studies is disappointing. All academic dishonesty at UNC should be rooted out and condemned. But it is important to remember that most athletes, while juggling practice and games, earn their degrees honestly. Their classes are taught by engaging and caring professors. A few rogue actors have tarnished the reputation of the University. While investigating misconduct, administrators should also combat generalizations about student athletes. Do some classes at UNC have a large number of
student athletes? Yes. Because of team practices and workouts that have to fit into their schedule, student athletes register before the rest of the student body. Playing, practicing, eating and living together, teammates become best friends. Students often take classes with their best friends. Most students enjoy a slightly less demanding course mixed into their rigorous academic schedules. Student athletes are no different. Athletes taking courses with teammates and friends shouldn’t necessarily be a cause for concern. Lax standards for athletes, if they exist, should be.
Come learn about the transit referendum
TO THE EDITOR: Voters are getting ready to decide whether to vote for or against a half-cent sales tax investing in public transit in Orange County. The ballot referendum, if approved, would provide funding for a new and expanded bus service (including nights and weekends), add express bus lane improvements on Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, create an Amtrak rail station in Hillsborough and start investing in light rail between Chapel Hill and Durham.
Choice in education
Why students should care about North Carolina school choice.
10/9: HALLOWEEN ALREADY? Memet Walker looks at the spooky side of UNC’s campus.
s college students, we all underwent a long process to select exactly the right university for our educational needs. Aside from cost, we considered many factors, including location, average class size, school reputation, quality of academics, campus safety, academic specialty and extracurricular opportunities. How many of us would have willingly chosen to attend a college notorious for its dangerous campus, low academic standards or shortage of qualified professors? I don’t think anyone with other options would choose this type of academic environment. However, many K-12 students in the traditional public school system don’t have such a choice.
Parents for Educational Freedom Senior English major from Charlotte. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
With a funding model partially based on property taxes, our public school system has created a network of schools across the country that differ immensely in terms of resources, teacher quality, safety and student achievement. By advocating for a public education system that offers more parental school choice to all students — regardless
of socioeconomic status — we can begin to address this fundamental inequality in our education system. These systems might include openenrollment policies at public schools or a network of highly accountable charter schools. Parental school choice programs are sometimes controversial, but the concept behind them is not a new one. Families with sufficient financial means have always been able to manage their children’s schooling options by choosing to live in certain neighborhoods or enrolling their children in private schools. A well-designed system with more quality school options will hopefully expand these opportunities to all students, regardless of income or address.

Health group answers: Who is Timmy?
By Emily Freeman
A few weeks ago, students woke up to find mysterious white flyers littering campus, and they all began to ask the same question: Who is Timmy? But Allie Jorgensen, the founder and president of UNC’s chapter of Timmy Global Health, said Timmy isn’t actually a person. “Timmy represents the idea that everyone deserves access to health care and education,” she said. Jorgensen began recruiting fellow students initially through word-of-mouth marketing but decided this year to promote the club more aggressively in hopes of doubling its membership, which is 35 members. The chapter held an interest meeting Sunday that drew about 30 students. “We put up 300 signs all over campus one night for three hours and have received an overwhelming response,” said Katherine Peters, the group’s treasurer and fundraising chair.
“We’ve had more than a hundred people ask us, ‘Who is Timmy?’” Jorgensen, a sophomore, founded the UNC chapter last December after she became ill on her first Timmy-affiliated trip the summer before coming to UNC. “I was climbing a mountain in Quito, Ecuador, when I suddenly experienced altitude sickness and almost passed out,” she said. “I turned to my brigade leader and said, ‘If you can get me to the summit of this mountain and safely back down, I’ll start my own Timmy Global Health chapter.’” UNC’s chapter is one of 12 university chapters connected to the national organization, which was founded in 1997. Jorgensen said the national founder of Timmy, Dr. Chuck Dietzen, was working in India with Mother Teresa when he was inspired to start an organization in honor of his older brother, Timmy, who died during infancy. The club hopes to raise money through benefit nights and other means to

support medical care in Tena, Ecuador, one of the towns Timmy is affiliated with. The club hopes to send up to 18 members to Tena next August on a trip. “We can make a measurable impact in these people’s lives through simple things like fundraising and awareness campaigns, so why wouldn’t we?” said Lizzie Robinson, the UNC chapter’s marketing chair. “Global health equity is a basic human right — everyone should have access to sustainable health care.” “Just because these people live in rural areas does not make them any less entitled to the same medical care that I receive.” Contact the desk editor at firstname.lastname@example.org.

New Chapel Hill website works on transparency
By Paige Ladisic
A new town of Chapel Hill website is putting open government at residents’ fingertips. On Oct. 1, the town launched Participate Chapel Hill to increase participation in town government by giving residents easier access to information and data. The effort is a component of the Chapel Hill 2020 comprehensive planning process. Participate Chapel Hill currently offers links to town and county data, social media town officials use and the different ways the town spends
tax revenue. Town spokeswoman Catherine Lazorko said the goal of the website — which is still under construction — is to be more open so residents don’t feel left in the dark. “We want to have a way of regularly checking in with the public,” she said. “We can receive their feedback and be responsive to that.” Lazorko said a lot of tools residents wanted to see were already available on the town’s website but were difficult to find. “One thing that Participate does is bring everything under one roof,” she said.
Lazorko said government transparency is something Chapel Hill has never shied away from. “If anything, we have a long history of being incredibly open and accessible,” she said. “I think it’s a Chapel Hill tradition of citizen participation and open government.” But Brian Russell, a Chapel Hill resident and an active participant in town government, said he isn’t pleased with the progress of Participate Chapel Hill so far. Russell said he likes the concept of the website, but feels the town hasn’t utilized it to its full capabilities.
“It needs advances, but I can’t see them coming very quickly,” Russell said. He said he has pushed for more accessible data to town residents and thinks the town did not understand what he was asking for. Russell also said Participate Chapel Hill is hard for residents to find, and he hopes the town will advertise it better. “Building it and saying they will come is not going to work,” Russell said. George Cianciolo, co-chairman of Chapel Hill 2020, said the purpose of the new website is to help residents
stay involved. “The Participate in Chapel Hill process is really an extension of Chapel Hill 2020,” he said. “It’s an attempt to get people involved.” Cianciolo said he hopes Participate Chapel Hill will make it easier for residents to know what Chapel Hill is working on. “There’s a tendency (for residents) to be somewhat cynical,” he said. “When something happens and people didn’t know about it, it’s a sort of back-room deal.” Town councilman Lee Storrow said the website will be a good resource for those

ASG raises executive o∞cers’ stipends
By Vinayak Balasubramanian
GREENSBORO — Members of the UNC-system Association of Student Governments engaged in heated talks about dollars and cents Saturday. Controversy arose during discussions about a bill that would compel traveling student delegations to keep their lodging commitments. A separate proposal to raise the stipends of some executive officers also attracted opposition from the UNCCH delegation. The association, which is funded by an annual $1 student fee and meets monthly, represents the interests of students throughout the UNC sys-
tem. Members met this month at UNC-Greensboro. The association has faced criticism in the past for ineffective advocacy and inefficient use of funds. But the new administration has been working to change this image. The Meetings Matter Act, which was approved unanimously after 45 minutes of heated debate, will allow the association to recoup lodging costs from student governments if their delegations agree to attend a meeting but fail to do so. “We’ve been wasting money like this for three months now and really want to stop this,” said Kevin Kimball, the association’s chief information officer, at the meeting.
ASG President Cameron Carswell said the association has lost at least $500 from unused hotel rooms this year. But some delegates complained that the association didn’t have the power to send bills to student governments. Kimball said he wasn’t sure the invoice would be enforceable, but the goal was to encourage accountability and attendance at meetings. Association delegates also voted to transfer $2,700 from the unallocated special projects fund to cover stipend increases for four officers. Frank Byrne, chief of staff for the association, said the officers were getting paid less than others in similar positions, which violates association policy.
For example, John Secrest, ASG vice president of student affairs, was paid $1,000 while other vice presidents received a $2,200 stipend — a violation of association policy. While nearly all delegates agreed to the changes, two members of UNC-CH’s delegation opposed them. “We can’t go back to Chapel Hill and tell students that we raised stipends,” said Jocelyn Burney, a UNC-CH delegate and chairwoman of Student Congress’ oversight and advocacy committee. The association also voted to approve a resolution encouraging each UNC-system school to create interpersonal violence prevention task forces. Committees continued research on several long-term
LARGER STIPENDS FOR ASG OFFICERS
The UNC-system Association of Student Governments voted to raise the stipends of four officers Saturday. John Secrest, vice president of student affairs, received a $1,200 increase, with a total stipend of $2,200. Bonnie Landaverdy, director of government relations, received a $500 increase, with a total stipend of $1,500. Hannah Werner, director of public relations, received a $500 increase, with a total stipend of $1,500. The vacant position of director of alumni relations, which will replace the associate vice president for access and affordability position, received a $500 increase, with a total stipend of $1,500.

become a habit, so I am glad that there was a lot of discussion.” Contact the desk editor at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Firm linked to NC accused of voter fraud
By Leslie Carlucci
As the N.C. gubernatorial candidates debate voter ID laws, the issue has been highlighted by instances of potential voter fraud in the state coming to light. Strategic Allied Consulting, which was working for Republican state parties across the country — including in North Carolina — to register voters, submitted suspicious ballots in Palm Beach County, Fla. The N.C. GOP has since terminated its contract with the firm, said Marshall Tutor, elections investigator for the N.C. Board of Elections. The party’s spokesman, Rob Lockwood, could not be reached for comment. The Strategic Allied Consulting website claims it traced the questionable forms to one employee who was fired as soon as suspicions surfaced. Tutor said county election boards are looking out for voter registration forms from Strategic Allied Consulting that might be fraudulent. “They are scrutinizing those voter registration forms, they are red-flagging and we are investigating from there,” he said. So far, the state board has identified about six questionable forms in N.C. from the firm — but many forms have not yet been processed. These red flags can include missing required information, pre-printed information on forms and an unusual number of registrations for one address. Tracy Reams, director of
the Orange County Board of Elections, said in an email that Orange County receives many forms from voter registration drives and has been asked to report anything questionable to the state board. Strategic Allied Consulting’s website states that the firm and its affiliates have registered more than 500,000 voters in more than 40 states since 2004. It claims to have a “zero tolerance” policy for violation of election law. Bob Hall, executive director for Democracy North Carolina, a left-leaning voter advocacy organization in Durham, said the firm was involved in “shady practices” in the past, such as not turning in forms of those seeking to register as Democrats. “It is a real concern that they would go ahead and hire those folks,” Hall said. He said he hopes the Republican Party, which has been campaigning for stricter voter ID legislation, will not use this as a scare tactic to help justify these proposals. Pat McCrory, the GOP gubernatorial candidate, has supported a state voter ID law. Lt. Gov. Walter Dalton, the Democratic candidate, is against one. Hall said there are precautionary practices to protect people if fraudulent forms are submitted in their name. These include mailing cards to verify the voter’s address and checking personal information. It is a felony to commit voter fraud. Contact the desk editor at email@example.com.
dth/kaki pope Award-winning illustrator, cartoonist and North Carolina native Hope Larson signs copies of her books at Chapel Hill Comics Sunday afternoon. She recently published a graphic novel adaptation of Madeleine L’Engle’s novel, “A Wrinkle in Time.”
Q&A with Hope Larson
Hope Larson, a North Carolina native and awardwinning illustrator and cartoonist who specializes in graphic novels, hosted a book signing at Chapel Hill Comics Sunday for her new graphic novel adaptation of Madeleine L’Engle’s “A Wrinkle in Time.” Staff writer Elizabeth Baker sat down with Larson after the signing and spoke with her about the adaptation, graphic novels and her career. your time in North Carolina influenced your work? born (in Chapel Hill), but we moved to Asheville when I was 1 or 2. Western North Carolina has influenced a lot of my work. It’s a big inspiration — the wildlife and the mountains.
DTH: What is your favorite project you have worked on thus far in your career and why? HL: I think probably my favorite is “Mercury,” which is the last book I wrote and drew. I had a great editor, which made the process really special for me.
do a graphic novel adaptation of “A Wrinkle in Time?”
HL: Well it’s a very faithful adaptation. And as far as what’s new, I think you get to see the really abstract stuff you don’t get to see a lot. There’s no wrong way to draw it, so it was fun. DTH: Does your version make this novel more accessible for children, or is it more aimed at adults? HL: I think it’s really both. I think it makes the novel less intimidating for reluctant readers, but I’ve heard of adults who love the novel and were excited it is in comic form. The really great thing is that most of the text is in the graphic version, so if a kid can get through the graphic novel, he’s pretty much read the book. And I think that’s awesome. DTH: The novel is full of whimsical and imaginative characters. Was it difficult for you to imagine a way to create those characters? HL: Not really. I tried
to stick really close to her descriptions, and there are actually really great descriptions of the beasts, so I knew what I needed to draw.
DTH: Do you hope to do graphic adaptations of other books in this series? HL: No, I don’t plan to. I prefer to be writing my own stuff. I think it would be cool if somebody else did the rest, not me. Then I could read them. DTH: Would you make a graphic novel adaptation of any other book? HL: I don’t think so. I haven’t really thought about it. I actually was asked that question about four years ago, and I said “A Wrinkle in Time” was the only book I would adapt, and it just came to me, like, out of the universe. It’s just such an important book to me.

lisher and L’Engle’s estate had planned to do one anyway. They contacted me and offered me the job. I was a big fan, so of course I said yes.

Obama campaign drew $181 million last month
WASHINGTON, D.C. (MCT) — Spurred on by the Democratic National Convention, new donateby-text capability and an expanding lead in state and national polls, President Barack Obama raised $181 million for his reelection effort in September, his campaign announced Saturday. The immense haul pushes the total raised for the incumbent’s campaign this cycle to $947 million, making it a near certainty he’ll surpass $1 billion raised for his campaign, the Democratic National Committee and other affiliated campaigns. The announcement came a day before the president was set to travel to Los Angeles for a trio of fundraisers, including one with President Bill Clinton and a concert featuring Stevie Wonder and other performers. An email to supporters from campaign manager Jim Messina said that 1.8 million people donated an average of $53 each in September, including 567,000 people giving for the first time. Since Obama launched his re-election campaign in April 2011, 3,922,420 people have donated to the campaign, he said. The Romney campaign has not announced its September fundraising numbers yet. The Republican nominee had raised $669 million through August between his campaign, the Republican National Committee and a joint fundraising committee.

included the British-American human rights lawyer Clive Stafford Smith and activists from the U.S. peace group Code Pink, drew attention to Khan’s opposition to the U.S. missile strikes, which has been a centerpiece of his political life. “Drones are against all human rights and international law. We wish to give the Americans a message: The more you do your drone attacks, the more people here will hate you,” Khan, wearing an elaborate tribal turban, said at a rally of several thousand supporters in a dusty field at the end of the march. Since the program started in 2004, the CIA has carried out 334 missile strikes in Pakistan’s tribal area. Those have reportedly killed between 1,886 and 3,194 people, according to a tally kept by the New America Foundation, a Washingtonbased research organization.
Anti-drone march halted by Pakistani Taliban
TANK, Pakistan (MCT) — A convoy protesting U.S. drone strikes led by Imran Khan, the cricket star turned politician, stopped short
Sunday of its goal to reach Pakistan’s lawless tribal area after threats of an attack from the Pakistani Taliban. After a chaotic and grueling two-day march from Islamabad, Khan halted the procession just past Tank, the last town before South Waziristan, a dangerous region of the tribal area that is generally considered a no-go zone for Westerners and others, even though the Pakistani army supposedly had driven out the Taliban in 2009. Khan said in a statement he stopped the march after it had passed Tank when the military contacted him to warn of a “genuine threat” ahead in South Waziristan. On Friday, the Pakistani Taliban issued a statement criticizing Khan and the march, and U.S. diplomats had warned Americans among the marchers of a possible terrorist attack. Still, the march, which

Florida are searching for new presidents this year. Greenwood, whose firm has helped 1,000 institutions in their searches, said U.S. News & World Report college rankings also are a factor in determining who is competitive. UNC is ranked by the publication as the 30th best college in the nation. UC Berkeley is ranked 21st and UW-Madison is 41st. Hargrove said the search
firm UNC hires will answer questions about competition for desirable candidates. “The search firms will give us a sense of competition — they certainly are in a better position to know than I am,” he said. Competition is not the only potential hurdle for universities. Candidates also consider the pressures that caused leaders to resign in the first place. The University of Nevada, Reno struggled to attract a candidate due to cuts to higher education funding — not he thinks the proposed ban is ridiculous. “I understand prohibiting smoking in certain areas, like in front of business properties,” he said. “But this ban has too much control.” Chapel Hill resident John Hansen, who is a regular customer at Expressions, said the ban would not stop his consumption. “The ban is a terrible idea,” Hansen said. “Nothing can make me more supportive.” Contact the desk editor at email@example.com. She said staff members want a chancellor who is available to hear their concerns, much in the same way Thorp has been for the past five years. Search committee member John McGowan, an English and comparative literature professor, said he wants to find a chancellor who will continue a tradition Thorp upheld: the importance of a liberal arts education. “I think I am one of the few people on the committee who represents the humanities side of the equation,” he said. “Very important to me will be looking for a chancellor who understands Symphony’s Instrument Zoo, where Kimberly Little — the symphony’s group sales and promotions coordinator — showed children how to play musical instruments. “I am surprised that the weather has held up, but I am not surprised that the people of Chapel Hill are out to enjoy the event,” Little said.
competition with other public universities, spokeswoman Jane Tors said. “That was the challenge we had — are you recruiting a president with stable funding? Or more budget cuts?” Tors said. “Public universities are struggling with this.” Toiv said the enormous pressures on university leaders have led to the recent unusual spike in resignations. “There are financial pressures, caused in large part by reduction in state support for public universities,” he said.
“There are political pressures by political leaders who are not committed to public higher education.” The UNC system absorbed a state funding cut of $414 million, or 15.6 percent, in 2011-12, though the N.C. General Assembly restored about $24 million in adjustments to the system’s budget this summer. The pressures of the search can be challenging, said Keith Sterling, spokesman for the University of Utah. Utah dealt with competition
from other public universities when it searched for a new president last year, he said. “For highly desirable candidates, there’s always a risk that they’ll receive multiple offers,” he said. Sterling said the university worked to distinguish itself from its competitors. “It’s all about marketing yourself,” he said. “If we do a good job with branding, candidates may want to come here if there is an opening.” Hargrove said UNC’s reputation will attract some of the

people on the committee,” said Jackie Overton, chairwoman of the Employee Forum. “But I have a vested interest in listening to my constituencies — which is almost 12,000 employees — on what they expect in the next chancellor and his relationship with his staff.” Overton said she has been asking for feedback from her staff in order to gauge their priorities. The main priority among the staff appears to be accessibility, Overton said.
the centrality of the College of Arts and Sciences to the undergraduate experience.” Michael Bertucci, president of the Graduate and Professional Student Federation and a member of the committee, said graduate students would like to see someone who already has a connection to UNC. He said he hopes the University’s affordability and strong relationship with the state will not change as a result of the leadership transition. “These are things that we would want the chancellor coming in to understand and love the University for,” he said. “We want to get more involved in Chapel Hill. I think we will be successful in doing so here.” Seasonal events like Festifall have long been a tradition in Chapel Hill. Apple Chill, the town’s former springtime event, was cancelled in 2006 after 30 years.
“In the framework of the business of the University, (these priorities) may be a little bit more difficult to work with, but we want to maintain them because they make the University a little more special.” McGowan said despite members’ differing priorities, he is confident they will be able to come together for the search. “One of the reasons I don’t have any worries walking into the committee is that I know these people want what’s best for the University.” Contact the desk editor at email@example.com. Carolyn Doyle, a vendor for the Orange County Artists Guild, said she is glad Festifall has endured. “Festifall is more of an informative and communitybased event. It is a family event,” she said.

didn’t do,” Sagula said. “Each time you could sense the momentum going in our way, all we needed to do was finish with a positive point and we couldn’t do it.” Junior Kayla Berringer agreed that the Tar Heels were unable to finish off each game the way they wanted to. “A lot of it was that we didn’t close the game,” she said. “We were in it every single game and it just came down to our inability to finish. Being consistent the whole way through the game — that was our problem.” The Florida State crowd rattled the Tar Heels, resulting in several UNC miscues. The Tar Heels committed 21 attack errors, many of which came late in sets when they desperately needed the points. UNC looked to rebound from its tough loss when it faced Miami (14-3, 6-1) Sunday afternoon. Again, blown chances and ugly errors at the worst times cost the Tar Heels late in sets, causing them to lose their second consecutive game. Berringer said the results of the FSU game seemed to

women’s volleyball coach
The North Carolina women’s volleyball team had a chance to earn road victories over two marquee ACC programs this weekend. Instead, they return to Chapel Hill with a 0-2 record in the state of Florida and are two games behind the conference leader. The Tar Heels (13-4, 4-3) were swept 3-0 Friday night by No. 13 Florida State (14-2, 6-1) in a game that was hotly contested despite the final score. UNC lost each set by two points (25-23, 26-24, 25-23). UNC had its chances to win each set, but untimely errors haunted UNC and ultimately cost it the match. Coach Joe Sagula said that the Tar Heels’ failure to finish is what gave FSU the opportunity to win. “It wasn’t so much what Florida State did, it’s what we
carry over into their match against Miami. “The first two sets were pretty tight — it was just a factor of being able to close the game,” Berringer said. “It’s a learning thing that we’re going to have to work on in practice this week.” The Hurricanes recorded 18 total blocks, the third most in Miami history, but the 35 attack errors by the Tar Heels sealed UNC’s defeat. Up 23-20 in the second set, an attack error by UNC gave the Hurricanes the momentum they needed to even the score and eventually take the set. Though the Tar Heels won the third set, the hole they dug themselves earlier in the match simply was too much to overcome and UNC lost the match 3-1. Senior Cora Harms

“How we practice this week is going to carry over to our games. We really need to work on not taking any mental breaks and mental lapses Her one-under-par, 71, in the final round secured the victory for UNC, but she couldn’t do it all herself. Fellow junior Jackie Chang had a strong tournament, posting a 2-over-par, 218, living up to her second seed for UNC. “None of us knew how we were doing today so when we all got off the course we were just ecstatic,” an excited Chang said. “We went out there and just played our own game and it ended up coming all together all at once.” The team win is the first during Chang’s career.

The team should return to Chapel Hill with assurance of its place in the national title hunt after winning on the very same course where the 2013 NCAA championship will be played. The importance of that is not lost on Mann. “It definitely is a huge confidence builder for the team going into nationals and into the spring season.” Contact the desk editor at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Junior Casey Grice paced the squad with a 2-underpar, 214, performance, good enough to capture second place in the individual competition. “It’s just a great confidence booster, to know we can play with all these teams and beat them as well,” Grice said. She credited consistency and patience for her second place finish. “I had to be patient hitting the ball all week and finally dropped a few putts on the back nine,” Grice said.
player to the left of me and to the right of me are going to be. And that really helps,” Campbell said. “The offense is constantly switching in people, so I think it’s a lot harder for them to stay on the same page.” While the defense has anchored the team so far this year it was fitting that the first goal North Carolina scored Friday came from a defender. After senior Cameron Brown’s shot in the 36th minute was deflected by the Clemson goalkeeper, Campbell headed it in for the first goal of his career. Campbell said the goal itself was easy — the ball was waiting for him in the box. But there was one problem.

You’ve got to get six inches here.’” Before returning to the field to stun the Hokies with a 62-yard touchdown scamper, a confident Bernard was quick to ease his coach’s mind. “I’ll get more than that.” Contact the desk editor at email@example.com.

the attention to his teammates. “I didn’t even know until someone told me after the game that I had that (many yards),” Bernard said. “Honestly, we had 300-plus rushing yards. That by itself showed that the offensive line did a great job today. They’re the ones out there struggling. They’re in the trenches.” The North Carolina offensive line — which, in addition to providing solid blocking all game long, helped protect Renner against a blitz-heavy Virginia Tech defense — was just as much responsible for his individual success during the game as he was, Bernard conceded. The redshirt sophomore tailback had a variety of players to thank for rushconducive protection — including his own quarterback. On first-and-10 from the North Carolina 36-yard line, with the Tar Heels leading 38-26 in the third quarter, Bernard took a handoff from Renner, spinning away from a Virginia Tech defender at the 40-yard line. As his teammate rushed 51 yards down the sideline, Renner used his shoulder to block an oncoming Hokie defender. “(Offensive lineman) James Hurst and I were talking about it, and I mean it was actually a great block,” a grinning Jonathan Cooper said. “He butt blocked him. Maybe not the best technique, but I mean it was a great job and allowed Gio to get a few more yards.” Bernard’s performance Saturday came after a 70yard rushing day against Idaho last week and a 50yard showing against East Carolina the week before that. Prior to the Tar Heels’ 27-6 victory against the Pirates, Bernard sat out the previous 10 quarters as he recovered from a lingering knee injury. But despite a sluggish start to Bernard’s season, Fedora knew that nothing about his star tailback was slow. So during the end-of-

Every day in practice, our competition is better than any team we’re going to play. That helps us so much.” Contact the desk editor at email@example.com.

Tailback giovani Bernard had a career high in rushing yards.

DTH ONLINE: To read a recap of
Saturday’s game, visit www. dailytarheel.com.
In a situation designed for a shortyardage play, the Virginia Tech defense crashed to the middle of the field at Kenan Stadium Saturday, desperate to stop North Carolina quarterback Bryn Renner from using a keeper to convert on fourth-andinches. But instead of a sneak, the Hokies got a show. With all eyes on a play up the middle, tailback Giovani Bernard took advantage of a wide-open hole on the left side of the field, gaining not just inches, but a 62-yard touchdown as he left the last Virginia Tech defender in the dust 15 yards behind him. The second-quarter play might have left Hokie defenders bewildered, but not North Carolina coach Larry Fedora. “That’s Gio,” he simply stated after the Tar Heels’ 48-34 win against Virginia Tech. In North Carolina’s first home victory against Virginia Tech since 1938, Bernard rushed for a career-high 262 yards, the first Tar Heel to rush for more than 200 yards
in almost a decade. Bernard’s average of 11.4 yards per carry is the highest in school history, breaking Kelvin Bryant’s 11.1 mark set in 1981. But even as he stood at the podium in the Kenan Football Center after the game to talk about his career day, an unassuming Bernard bashfully attempted to divert

If this year’s North Carolina women’s golf team was holding anything back this season, consider this weekend’s Liz Murphey Fall Preview tournament its coming out party. The Tar Heels surpassed expectations and took out a stacked field, including No. 1 Alabama at the event held in Athens, Ga., finishing with a score of 12-over-par, 876, as a team over the three rounds held Friday through Sunday. “It was certainly a great victory for our team,” coach Jan Mann

men’s soccer head coach
UNC beat Clemson 2-0 to secure its eighth shutout of the season.
By Michael Lananna
All season long, North Carolina men’s soccer coach Carlos Somoano has been waiting for his offense to click. He’s still waiting. Heading into Friday’s matchup against Clemson, the Tar Heels were averaging 1.5 goals per game — far short of the 2.23 goals the national championship UNC team averaged last year. And on Friday, the No. 6 Tar Heels (9-1-1, 4-0-1 ACC) raised that statistic only slightly, riding goals from freshman Jonathan Campbell and sophomore Mikey Lopez to a 2-0 win against Clemson. Somoano said Sunday that his offense still isn’t where he would like it to be. But while UNC hasn’t been scoring at the same clip, it has
seen no decline in the win column. “We’re definitely not as explosive a goal-scoring team as we would like, but that’s OK,” Somoano said. “That just may not be the characteristic of this team. “But we defend extremely well, and if we have to be a little bit more of a defensive team because that’s our strength this year, then we’ll embrace our strength and go with it.” So far this season, that defense has carried the Tar Heels. Through 11 games, UNC has allowed just three goals, notching its eighth shutout of the year against Clemson. The Tar Heels held the Tigers (4-6-2, 2-2-1) to nine shots Friday, only one of which was on frame. For Somoano, the sight of his backline shutting down an oppos-
ing team was a familiar one. “Yeah, they’re good,” Somoano said, chuckling. “It’s hard to quantify. I guess the eight shutouts is one way. They’re just good … And anytime they break down, we have (goalkeeper) Scott Goodwin behind them. “They’re doing a great job. There’s no doubt about it.” The back four includes Campbell, sophomores Jordan McCrary and Boyd Okwuonu and, on most nights, redshirt senior captain Jordan Gafa, who sat out Friday due to injury. Campbell said the consistency in the backline has facilitated a stronger connection between himself and his fellow defenders. “I already know where the

Last weekend, the North Carolina field hockey team allowed three goals in two games — all on penalty corners. Though the Tar Heels prevailed in both contests, they knew that if they could improve on anything, it was defending set plays. UNC proved this weekend in Boston that it had taken that challenge seriously. For the second time this season, the Tar Heels (141, 3-0 ACC) posted back-to-back shutouts in weekend games, defeating Boston College 4-0 on Saturday and Dartmouth 6-0 on Sunday. “On corner defense, we were a little shaky last weekend,” sophomore back Samantha Travers said. “So we really worked on boxing out — getting a body on a girl and not letting the girl get to a rebound. Even if you can’t get to the rebound, as long as the other girl can’t, you’re doing your job.” In field hockey, penalty corners are awarded for infractions committed by the defense inside the circle — an arc with a radius extending 16 yards from the goal. An attacking player receives the ball on the endline and passes it to her teammates positioned around the arc. Until the ball is hit, five of the defending team’s players must remain behind the endline while the other six must begin beyond midfield.

Against Dartmouth on Sunday, Craddock again opened the scoring, this time in the 13th minute. But the final five goals were dispersed among five of her teammates. “Any way we can score is great,” said sophomore forward Loren Shealy, who also scored a goal in both games this weekend. “If we have one person scoring three goals, that’s great. But if we have six different players scoring, that’s great as well. It just shows the depth of our bench.” UNC denied six Dartmouth penalty corners in the final 15 minutes of the game.
