Married gay couples in NC hopeful for benefits
Supreme Court gay marriage rulings leave legal questions unanswered.
By Sarah Brown
State & National Editor

Folt greets UNC, meets tough job ahead

In the midst of celebrating the U.S. Supreme Court’s gay marriage rulings last week, Jen Jones called her fiancee Laura Meadows and popped the question a second time. Jones, communications director at Equality N.C. and a Carrboro resident, told Meadows she wanted to legally tie the knot next month — not in a year, as they had originally planned. Meadows agreed. The court’s invalidation of a key part of the Defense of Marriage Act is expected to give many federal benefits of marriage, including Social Security and inheritance rights, to married same-sex couples. But Jones said questions surround the status of her upcoming marriage — and the marriages of all gay couples living in the 35 states, including North Carolina, that ban same-sex marriage. Attorneys and legal experts are grappling with the federal definition of marriage and whether it should recognize a couple’s state of residence or the state where the marriage took place. “There is a myriad of confusion across the nation about the implications of DOMA,” Jones said. Since the court decision, President Barack Obama has directed his administration to press for federal recognition of all legally married couples, regardless of where they live. “When you’re married, you’re married,” said Evan Wolfson, founder and president of the national Freedom to Marry Coalition. “It doesn’t sputter in and out like cell phone service, depending on what state you’re in.” Holning Lau, president of North Carolina’s chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union and a UNC law professor, said Obama’s move represents progress for gay couples seeking benefits. But he said it does not mark the end of the debate. “Not everything can be cured by an agency change,” he said. “There are going to be some areas of law where Congress will have to get involved.” Neither the Defense of Marriage Act ruling nor the striking down of California’s Proposition 8 has a direct impact on N.C. Amendment One, the state’s gay marriage ban — but Lau said gay rights supporters should be encouraged by Justice Anthony Kennedy’s rhetoric in the majority opinion. “There’s a lot of language in the opinion about the dignity and integrity of gay people and gay relationships that bolsters the case for future lawsuits about marriage equality.” Future legal action is a cause for concern among traditional marriage advocates, said John Rustin, president of the N.C. Family Policy Council. “(The rulings) will likely establish the perception that the Supreme Court would be friendly to additional challenges to traditional marriage,” he said. Still, Rustin said gay marriage opponents will continue to promote their message and strengthen support for one-man, one-woman unions. He said he was pleased the court did not redefine marriage altogether. Several Republicans in the U.S. House of Representatives — including three from North Carolina — introduced a bill Monday that would enshrine a gay marriage ban in the U.S. Constitution. But the momentum propelling gay marriage forward is enough to overcome opposition, Wolfson said. With same-sex marriage reinstated in California after Proposition 8’s end, about a third of Americans now live in a state where the union is legal. Since October 2012, when the court heard oral

Tucked in a corner office within South Building, a very small woman sits behind a very big desk. For her first day of work, she donned a Carolina blue and green dress with

a white blazer, a UNC-themed symbol pinned to each lapel. For her first lunch, she ventured out to Sutton’s Drug Store on Franklin Street, sampling its specialty burger and cherry Coke for the first time. And when she headed back to her office, Chancellor Carol Folt — who stands 5 feet, one and three-quarters inches tall, by her own account — looked around at the walls that had just been painted Carolina blue in preparation for

her arrival. “There will be a lot for me to learn here,” she said, with a smile that never fell from her face. With that smile, Folt officially began her tenure Monday as the University’s top administrator — a position that, for her predecessor, was plagued by a series of stringent budget cuts and ever-unfolding scandals.

Four challenges facing Chancellor Carol Folt at the start
Sexual assault
With two federal investigations underway and student protests continuing on, the University is set to readdress its sexual assault policies on how cases are handled.

Role of athletics
Former Chancellor Thorp suggested big-time sports be taken out of the chancellor’s control. Folt needs to work to find a balance between athletics and academics.

Accreditation
The University escaped a sanction from its accreditor, but it still faces a year of monitoring. Supplementary classes need to be implemented to make some degrees whole.

Fundraising
A new capital campaign sits on the horizon, and the former leader of a private institution still faces the task of choosing a vice chancellor for university advancement.

As Jim Dean reflected on his first day as executive vice chancellor and provost July 1, he said he was humbled. “After 16 years, I knew everything about how (Kenan-Flagler Business School) worked,” said Dean, the former dean of the school. “I have an awful lot to learn about how things work in this role. I’ve gone from an expert to a novice overnight.” Dean began his tenure as provost Monday after serving in a variety of leadership roles in the business school. Jack Evans, who has served as interim dean of the school twice before, will serve

in the role again until a new leader is chosen. Dean’s salary in his new position is $445,000, while former Provost Bruce Carney earned $350,000. As dean of the business school, Dean earned $353, 290. Carney, who spent much of his tenure dealing with a series of stringent budget cuts, stepped down at the end of June to return to the faculty. Dean said he is expecting the University to suffer more budget cuts this year, and he said dealing with them will be among his biggest challenges. He also said working with Chancellor Carol Folt will be a welcomed challenge because both leaders are new to their jobs. “(I’ll be) working with Chancellor Folt and many, many others to forge a new

Top equity o∞cer announces retirement
Ann Penn, organizer of the Sexual Assault Task Force, leaves Aug. 1.

Staff Writer

After spending 30 years helping collegiate institutions comply with federal requirements, Ann Penn will retire at the end of July. Penn has served as the director of the University’s Equal Opportunity/Americans with Disabilities Act Office since 2006, trying to promote accessibility and equity in all areas of UNC. She worked as acting Title IX coordinator until April, and most recently, Penn assembled

the Sexual Assault Task Force charged with examining the University’s policies involving handling complaints of sexual assault. Former Chancellor Holden Thorp announced Penn’s plans to retire in an email last week and

said Chancellor Carol Folt will appoint an interim director while the University searches for a replacement. Penn served on the task force until its last meeting June 10, when she abruptly left halfway through because concerns were raised about her involvement in the group’s discussions. Terri Phoenix, director of UNC’s LGBTQ Center, said at the meeting that the involvement of someone in Penn’s position was problematic because her office is ultimately responsible for implementing the group’s recommendations. But Penn said her retirement, which will take effect Aug. 1, was unrelated to that situation.

ending your kids to keep your grandparents company is a timehonored tradition, but what happens when there’s no one left even remotely interested in spending time with your elders? A new law in China aims to fix this forever by forcing adults to spend time with their parents — lonely old people are a real, nationwide concern. The law promises fines or even jail time for Chinese people who fail to visit their parents “often,” but many say it’s vague and not enforceable. You just can’t force people to love and care for their elders. But maybe they could hire people to do it for them? They could even build resorts where the old people could all live together and just be each other’s friends! Why haven’t we thought of that? Oh, right.

NOTED. An Arizona woman crossing the border was found with an entire pound of meth hidden in her pelvis last week. My first question whenever anyone gets anything surgically removed is, “How on earth did it get there in the first place?” But I can honestly say I have zero interest in hearing the mechanics of this situation.

Aldermen focus on Carr Mill towing
By McKenzie Coey
Staff Writer

Carrboro’s proposed towing restrictions might not be enough to solve downtown parking issues. Last month, the town’s Board of Aldermen discussed complaints about increased towing in downtown lots. Following Chapel Hill’s attempts to impose new restrictions on towing, Carrboro is looking into new rules that would ban towing of cars parked in areas without proper signage. Carrboro’s current restrictions mandate that towing companies accept credit and debit cards and limit towing charges to $100. But representatives of Carr Mill Mall say some of the blame for the uptick in towing lies with the board — and limited downtown parking. Alderman Jacquelyn Gist said the town has received several complaints about parking and towing

despite the restrictions. She said many complaints were about towing in the Carr Mill lots. She said people park in the lots, then walk off the property to shop at another nearby location and then have their cars towed. “(Carr Mill owns) the parking lot, so they have the right to say that — regardless if we want them to,” she said. “There are other places to park in Carrboro, and unfortunately, people choose to park in Carr Mill when they aren’t planning on shopping there.” Gist said another issue with parking in Carrboro was Chapel Hill’s new $250 park-and-ride lot fee, which will begin in August. She said she had concerns about people parking in Carrboro’s free lots to avoid paying the fee. In a statement made to the Board of Aldermen on June 25, Carr Mill officials said the real issue was the shortage of parking in Carrboro,

rather than excessive towing. The statement said because the town approved new downtown development without considering the lack of parking, the mall has needed to enforce lot rules more than it has in the past. “Carr Mill has had to begin vigorously enforcing its long-standing rules regarding parking and leaving the property, something that Carr Mill does not like to do for obvious reasons,” the statement said. “The town needs to acknowledge that Carrboro does not have a towing problem and that Carr Mill Mall is not the problem ... The town, through its ordinances, policies and permit approvals, has a parking shortage of its own making.” Alderman Damon Seils said the town has been looking into the issue. “That is a conversation that the town will be having for a while,” he said. “We directed staff to start

working on a downtown parking plan.” But he said Carrboro’s towing restrictions and the lack of parking were two different issues. “I am very interested in the park-

A look back at revamped writing requirement
By Marshall Winchester
Staff Writer

One year after the University eliminated an option to test out of its writing requirement for incoming freshmen, some students are becoming increasingly unhappy with the policy change. Last year, the University implemented a revised English composition policy, which required all freshmen to take English 105, a course that replaced English 101 and 102. Before, students could place out of the courses if their SAT or Advanced Placement scores were above a certain level. Todd Taylor, acting director of UNC’s writing program, said the revised curriculum was implemented because standardized exams don’t provide an accurate indication of college writing skills. “The SAT doesn’t really measure college writing,” Taylor said. “It’s not about that. It doesn’t even pretend to measure that.” Taylor said the writing assignments in English 105 are designed to be more applicable to the writing that students will have to do at UNC and are genre-based. He said UNC’s peer institutions are increasingly requiring students to take at least one writing course as part of their first-year experience, which helped push UNC to make the change. Mark Steele, an incoming freshman, said he

would have placed out of the writing requirement under the old system, and he does not think the new requirement is fair. But Taylor said he feels the change has benefited students, and does not feel it’s unfair to students who would have placed out of the class with AP or SAT scores. He said he thought it would be more unfair not to properly prepare undergraduates for college writing. “(Under the old system) there were students who had good language ability, but they didn’t have necessarily the kind of experiences and preparation they (needed) to write in college,” Taylor said. “Good students would be exempt from 101 and 102, but not really have an introduction or preparation to college writing.” Sophomore Emily Salo said she was frustrated by English 105 because she felt the course did not help improve her writing skills. She said UNC shouldn’t require students to take a writing class if they have proven proficiency in writing through SAT or AP scores. But Salo said she did find the class helpful in some aspects. “It was helpful (to) have the plagiarism guidelines laid out clearly and library resources explained,” she said.

Abortion sex ed bill waiting for McCrory

A controversial N.C. Senate abortion bill is headed to Gov. Pat McCrory’s desk not long after Texas Sen. Wendy Davis’ pink-sneakered stand on her own Senate floor — calling into question one of McCrory’s key campaign promises. Senate Bill 132 would require public school sex education classes to include the risk of premature births for women who had previously had an abortion, as well as other risk factors like drug use or smoking. The classes would start in seventh grade. The bill gained final Senate approval Tuesday after passing the N.C. House of Representatives last week, sending it to the governor’s desk. McCrory said last week he would sign the bill into law, spawning criticism in light of his campaign vow not to enact new abortion restrictions. Though legislators have framed it as an education bill, its reach spans beyond the classroom, said Suzanne Buckley, executive director of NARAL Pro-Choice North Carolina, in a statement. The bill never faced an education committee. “This bill has nothing to do with education and everything to do with an anti-choice political agenda,” Buckley said. Still, supporters of the legislation say McCrory has stayed true to his promise. Ruby Bea Peters — executive director of Pregnancy Support Services, a local Christian ministry providing abortion alternatives — said in an email the bill does not restrict abortion. “I do see this bill promoting long-term health

information for the person seeking an abortion,” Peters said. Opponents have also decried the science behind the bill, saying the link between abortion and preterm births lacks scientific clout. Alison Kiser, spokeswoman for Planned Parenthood of central North Carolina, said the bill’s claims lack conclusive support from several medical agencies, including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The bill puts personal politics above education, replacing medical fact with bias, she said. “This bill is just another way to start shaming women and young girls at an even earlier age.” But the current curriculum tiptoes around abortion, leaving students less informed, said Emily Farthing, a UNC sophomore and member of anti-abortion group Carolina Students for Life. The original bill deemed abortion a “cause” of preterm births, but an amendment called it a “risk.” A proposed Democratic amendment would have directed teachers only to make information available about preterm birth risks, but it was tabled. The 2009 Healthy Youth Act shifted N.C. sex education to a comprehensive — not abstinenceonly — curriculum. Though it stresses abstinence, it also teaches about birth control and STD prevention, Kiser said. “We want teenagers to remain abstinent until mentally and emotionally ready,” she said. “But we understand that doesn’t always happen.” Contact the desk editor at state@dailytarheel.com.

Q&A with Civil War historian Fitzhugh Brundage
This week marks the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg, the most famous Civil War battle — and UNC history professor Fitzhugh Brundage is one of several scholars calling into question some common assumptions about the war.

I can really draw on his experience here, and he can also have some of my experience, having been in that role.” Carney said Dean will face a number of challenges throughout his career as provost. “He has to make hard decisions as a dean, and he’ll have to make hard decisions as provost,” Carney said. “But the more (he) can understand the facts, the finances, the people, the opportunities, the better off he’ll be.” Susan Cates, head of executive development for the business school, said in May that Dean is accustomed to making hard decisions and bold moves. “Jim thinks through the implications and ripple effects of his decisions,” she said. “And he’s not afraid to take a position that he believes is right for the institution even if not everyone agrees with it.” LaChaun Anderson, executive assistant to the dean in the business school, said Kenan-Flagler is adjusting to life without Dean. “We definitely miss Jim Dean,” Anderson said.

UNC Hospitals has completed the first phase of construction on its new Hillsborough campus, located at 460 Waterstone Drive. The first part of the development to be finished is a 60,000-square-foot medical office building, which began treating patients Monday. Crews first broke ground at the site on April 20, 2011. The facility’s central utility area is also complete, including water boilers and chillers, cooling towers and the campus’ mechanical and electrical infrastructure located on 15,000 square feet. The hospital’s estimated staff of about 500 people will include employees shifted in three phases from other UNC Hospitals locations. Positions specific to the Hillsborough location will also be created, said Ray Lafrenaye, vice president of facility planning and development at UNC Hospitals. Construction of the 40-acre development will cost more than $200 million, and the final facilities will include 68 patient rooms, kitchen and cafeteria facilities, several operating rooms, intensive care units, radiology units and an emergency department, said Ben Huffman, the hospital’s project manager with the construction group

dth/mary meade mcmullan UNC Hospitals recently opened a new office building on its 40-acre Hillsborough medical campus.

Skanska U.S.A. Building Inc. The campus’ remaining facilities will be built in two phases, starting with the diagnostic and treatment center and finally the patient housing facilities. The entire facility, located near Interstates 40 and 85 and N.C. Highway 86, is projected to be operational by July 2015, Lafrenaye said. “The folks in Hillsborough have been very accommodating to building the hospital there,” Lafrenaye said. “They have been very helpful, very participatory in the building of the hospital, and it’s been a great relationship with the town of Hillsborough.” Hillsborough Town

Manager Eric Peterson said town residents are excited about the new facility, which will be the largest medical center in town. “To have world-class health care right here in the town of Hillsborough is just a great amenity for everybody in the community,” Peterson said. “The new hospital is going to be an economic engine.” Despite the two remaining years of development, Peterson said Hillsborough has already begun to benefit economically from the project. He said the future will bring more jobs to the area, both through the facility itself and in businesses that will grow up around it.

He said he expected businesses catering to patients and their families, such as restaurants and hotels, to develop as the hospital grows. “As the hospital goes up and other businesses go up in Waterstone, that is just going to help the other businesses and it will circulate more dollars throughout Hillsborough and Orange County,” he said. “We think (the hospital) is going to drive a lot of the type of new development and growth that the businesses and the citizens have wanted in Hillsborough.” Contact the desk editor at city@dailytarheel.com.

new chancellor

The job also brings with it a $520,000 yearly salary — an increase from former Chancellor Holden Thorp’s $432,600 — as well as two federal investigations surrounding the University’s handling of sexual assault and a State Bureau of Investigation probe into the Department of African and Afro-American Studies. But sitting in her office — “the beautiful chancellor’s as yet not even messy room” — on her first day, Folt said the recent scrutiny UNC has faced is a testament to its legacy. And it’s something, she said, that will prove only to strengthen the University as it moves forward. “(UNC) has held itself to a very high standard throughout its life, so I think it’s very difficult when you face a challenge because you aspire for that standard,” she said. “It’s been really difficult for people, and I think that’s actually to its credit. “If people didn’t care, that would be a bad sign.”

campus,’” she said. “And I had that (Sunday) night here as I realized, ‘Well, it really is now in my hands.’” With the nation’s first public university firmly within her grasp, the former leader of a private institution said her first steps will involve meeting with a number of different people and groups on campus, getting to know them and what they would like to see. She said she has been speaking with University leaders to discuss goals for things to be done in the future as well as what should be done immediately. And mostly, she said, she hopes to maintain the values and traditions UNC already stands for. “(UNC) invented what a university could be, and it has the opportunity to continue to reinvent it with every generation, with a legacy that maintains that kind of excellence,” Folt said. “I think, at its core, that is what we should wake up every day thinking about.”

Challenges to address
With Folt finally settled into the position she was chosen for in April, many faculty members have already begun to think about the role the new chancellor is inheriting. Lew Margolis, an associate professor of public health who has spoken out on the academic scandals in the past, said Folt’s primary responsibility is to advance the mission of the University by strengthening its scholarship, research and creativity.

First steps forward
Folt, who spent the past year serving in the top leadership role at Dartmouth College, said a piece of advice she received the night before her first day there rang true again this week. “That very first day, the previous president had said to me, ‘You know, the one thing you’re not going to be expecting is how responsible you feel for every single person on

But beyond that, the rest of the chancellor’s priorities, he said, should stem from the challenges that have cropped up in the past — among them, the unanswered questions surrounding sexual assault policies and the changing role of athletics in academics. “Transparency has to be a paramount value,” Margolis said. “If we think back on the athletics scandal, if we think back on the controversy over sexual assault policies, had there been transparency and had all of the relevant information been released, then we can deal with it.” Jay Smith, a history professor who has been at the forefront of faculty discussions on restoring academic integrity, said there are a number of issues currently gnawing at the heart of the University’s integrity. He said an open acknowledgement of those problems at the start would set a positive tone. “I have a feeling that there hasn’t been enough ventilation in South Building over the past few years,” Smith said. “(Folt) could make a difference by signaling that she has an open-door policy, that she will listen to anyone who has problems to discuss, that she will reward truth-tellers instead of intimidating them or trying to keep them silent, which has happened around here.” And with just three days in office behind her, Folt has indicated that she hopes to have conversations about past scandals moving forward — but that she recognizes there are other aspects of the University to address, too. “For me, the most important things aren’t those issues,” Folt said. “They’re really students — what are they loving about their expe-

rience, and what are they excited about doing? “I’m eager to find out more about that.”

‘Savor the joy’
Beside her new, stilluncluttered desk in South Building Monday, the new chancellor wrung her hands as she spoke. “We’ve got work to do in some areas,” she said, specifically referencing recent problems surrounding sexual assault policies. “And we’ve got to let the process go in others. “But that isn’t ever going to end — we’re always going to be thinking about that.” Thorp, whose tenure as chancellor was cut short after just five years, offered his own advice for Folt, whom he said he’s had several extended conversations with throughout the transition. “(Folt) needs to recognize that she is a really important public figure in North Carolina — some would even say the most important public figure — and that comes with a lot of burden and responsibility, but also a lot of joy,” he said. “And she needs to savor the joy and try not to take the burdens too hard.” Folt said as she looks forward to her chancellorship, she hopes to achieve lofty goals — academically, athletically and otherwise. “I think that’s what we all believe — that if you do this right, you could set the example for the country on how to do it right. And frankly I think, ‘Well if not Carolina, who?’” she said. “This is a place that could be that leader, but it takes a dream. “And then it’s going to take hard work.” Contact the desk editor at university@dailytarheel.com.

UNC basketball’s big men take over
Incoming freshmen will add size to the Tar Heels this season.
By Max Miceli
Sports Editor

North Carolina men’s basketball guards Leslie McDonald and Marcus Paige were choosing teams for a friendly game of pickup among UNC players when they found themselves in an unfamiliar situation. The majority of the people playing were used to setting up in the paint, and each team ended up with three big men — surprising forward

Joel James. “That’s never happened as long as I’ve been here,” James said. “It was weird because all of us wanted to post up. But somebody’s got to get out of the paint.” The Tar Heels likely won’t throw three big men on the court at a time during the 2013 season, but their ability to do so shows how much their personnel has changed since last year. With the departure of guards Dexter Strickland and Reggie Bullock to graduation and the NBA, the UNC roster became lighter at the guard position at season’s end. And with the addition

of incoming freshmen bigs Isaiah Hicks and Kennedy Meeks, the Tar Heels’ roster is now dominated by frontcourt players. “Since Kennedy and Isaiah have gotten here, it’s been a lot more crowded,” rising sophomore Brice Johnson said. “We’re all competing for the one spot or two spots.” Though last year UNC was able to make a late-season push by starting small forward P.J. Hairston instead of Desmond Hubert, this year the Tar Heels will likely stick with a more traditional lineup. Having six players standing in at 6-foot-8 or taller, coach

Roy Williams has a plethora of options when it comes to finding someone to play alongside returning starter James Michael McAdoo. But despite the seemingly endless possibilities for the Tar Heels in the paint, James said he is confident he’ll be one of the starters come November. “I’m going to be the starting center. That’s going to be a lot of expectations,” James said. “I don’t want to be sitting on the bench anymore.” With confidence and variety, the new Tar Heels’ frontcourt boasts an assortment of players with different styles that could prove to be frustrating for the team’s oppo-

nents this coming season. James said with “bangers” like himself and “slashers” like Johnson, UNC has a large enough frontcourt to simulate a game experience — even in pickup games. “It’s definitely a plus for us,” James said. “(There’s a) big-man mentality starting to be formed.” Even the Tar Heel backcourt likes the move toward a bigger lineup. McDonald, a senior, said with fewer guards on the roster, there will be more opportunities for him to step up and play a major role. Though McDonald played 30 games last season, he started just one game and

averaged about 18 minutes a game. “By Reggie leaving, and Dexter, we’re a little limited in the guard play,” McDonald said. “There are going to be more minutes for me, J.P. (Tokoto) and P.J.” McDonald added that UNC’s mixture of size and speed could give the team an edge they need. “Being able to run the floor, and being that type of size, gives us an advantage,” McDonald said. “When we match up with a lot of other big men, I don’t think they’re as versatile as our big men.” Contact the desk editor at sports@dailytarheel.com.

dth file photo/kaki pope UNC pitcher Kent Emanuel, who just finished his junior year, has signed to play with the Houston Astros. Two other UNC players, Brian Holberton and Chris Munnelly, will also play for the Astros.

Seven Tar Heels head to the big leagues
By Marilyn Payne
Staff Writer

Having seven players from the 2013 roster that will sign professional contracts before the beginning of the 2014 baseball season is part of what makes the North Carolina baseball program. “We want them to get drafted,” coach Mike Fox said. “We tell every recruit (that) part of developing them for the next level is part of what we do in this program.” This year’s exiting group — which consists of graduated seniors Chaz Frank, Chris Munnelly and Cody Stubbs and juniors Kent Emanuel, Brian Holberton, Hobbs Johnson and Colin Moran — isn’t leaving the largest hole on a roster in the changing of seasons for coach Fox. But the names of players leaving scatter the UNC record books in several areas. “I’ve had a lot more (leave), but they’re seven good ones,” Fox said. “It’s a catch-22, because you want good players. “But if you have good players, they’re going to get drafted. It’s just the nature of what we do.”

The loss of the seven players at the end of the season is about what the staff expected from the beginning. But for Munnelly, who signed with the Houston Astros June 24 as a free agent, it was an unexpected signing bonus. “I didn’t expect (to be) a free agent, but honestly I feel like you get the same opportunity either way,” he said. “Knowing that two of my best friends (Holberton and Emanuel) in college were going to be playing with me.” Each player is in a different place in the transition — all three seniors have already made debut performances, Holberton and Johnson have yet to do so and Emanuel and Moran are still unsigned. But the enthusiasm is the same. “I’m just excited — knowing I get to turn (playing) into a job is just pretty cool,” Emanuel said. “I’m looking forward to just being able to advance through the system as quickly as possible.” Having Tar Heel alumni moving through the professional ranks is something Fox anticipates and works around. For him, part of the fun of

the UNC baseball family is the connections that encircle the program and the way support continues. As this summer’s group of professional rookies moves through programs, Fox is following along with other former players as they push their talents further as well. “That’s the thrill of a lifetime,” Fox said. “You have to relish when you do get guys back, like this (past) season, and it all sort of aligns.” Contact the desk editor at sports@dailytarheel.com.

The Daily Tar Heel

Q&A with council member Gene Pease
After four years on the Chapel Hill Town Council, Gene Pease announced he was not running for re-election in November. Daily Tar Heel staff writer Lauren Grady sat down with Pease to discuss his decision to leave the council, reflect on his term and look at his future plans. Council. In one of those contentious meetings, the former Mayor (Kevin) Foy looked at me and said, “Stop complaining and get involved.” So I did. I joined the Planning Board. I was then chairman of the Citizens Budget Advisory Committee. I became a member of the OWASA Board. I was co-chairman of the Horace Williams Citizens Committee, which was the planning that was originally done for Carolina North. Then I was president of the Library Foundation, and then ran for Town Council.

Gene Pease served on the Chapel Hill Town Council for four years but will not run for re-election this fall.

DAILY TAR HEEL: In what capacities have you been involved in the town? GENE PEASE: I first started out as my neighborhood president. We got in a fight over development with the University and that got me speaking in front of Town

DTH: Are there any ordinances or town initiatives that you’re particularly proud of? GP: Not, probably, the cellphone ban. I wished we had gone to hands-free because it’s just unenforceable. It’s a law we made to make a statement, but I don’t believe in things that you can’t enforce. So I voted

against that twice. I’m very proud of the fact that we were able to not raise taxes for three years during the recession. We worked really, really hard and made some very hard decisions to not raise taxes when the economy was really down and people were really struggling. I feel good about that.

DTH: You’ve been seen by some as a voice for Chapel Hill’s business community — is that a role you embrace? GP: Yes, that’s a natural role for me because I’m an entrepreneur and a small business owner. I have an MBA, so it’s

easy to button-hole me. I am for wise development. I’ve been a proponent for increased development in the right areas, so we can increase our commercial tax base and take some of the burden off of our residences and apartment owners. What most people don’t know about me is that I’m very progressive on social issues. I’ve worked very hard for things like the (Community) Home Trust and the Library Foundation. I think that’s why I got elected — I wasn’t just pro-business. I’m very strong in environmental things. I was on the OWASA Board. For those who know me, I’m pretty balanced.

public service. I’m not running again for that office, and it’s primarily because of my time. It’s incredibly demanding from a time point of view, if you want to do a good job. It’s time for me to slow down a little bit. My family is all out on the West Coast … my oldest daughter just had a baby, so I’m a grandfather. It just would be very hard to put the hours in that I would need to do a good job, so I felt that I wouldn’t run again. Contact the desk editor at city@dailytarheel.com.

No more public funds for town candidates
By Daniel Schere
Staff Writer

Candidates will begin filing for office in Chapel Hill Friday — and they will do so without a public campaign financing program that has been in place since 2008. The town’s Voter-Owned Election Program, which was approved by the N.C. General Assembly in 2007 and has been used in the last two election cycles, will not be in place this November. The program aimed to level the playing field for candidates from different economic backgrounds by limiting individual campaign donations to $20 and setting maximum fundraising thresholds for

local candidates. Many town leaders say they are concerned the loss of the program will shift candidates’ attention away from the issues and toward fundraising. Under the old program, candidates for Town Council had to raise $838 from at least 83 contributors, with a ceiling of $2,513, in order to run for office. Mayoral candidates had to raise $1,676 from at least 165 contributors with a ceiling of $5,027. In May 2012, Rep. Verla Insko (D-Orange) proposed a bill in the General Assembly that would have extended the end date of the program beyond July 1, 2012, but it was not considered after going to the Committee

on Rules, Calendar and Operations of the House. Insko said she was disappointed but unsurprised because she thinks Republicans in the legislature don’t favor public financing. “In a democracy, one would think the citizens of a city could decide how to pay for elections as long as it didn’t violate the U.S. or N.C. Constitutions or any laws, and it didn’t,” she said in an email. Chapel Hill Mayor Mark Kleinschmidt said he’s concerned the program’s absence will prevent candidates with fewer donors from running. “I’m sure there are plenty of people in Chapel Hill that can write those checks, but plenty of people who can’t,”

he said. Kleinschmidt said he is not sure if the program’s expiration will lead to a decline in the number of candidates. “The most important variable is how many incumbents are running for re-election,” he said, noting that council members Gene Pease and Laurin Easthom will not be seeking re-election this year. Orange County Commissioner and former Chapel Hill council member Penny Rich said the program made a huge difference in 2009 — two years after she ran for council unsuccessfully. “The difference between running in 2007 and 2009 was like night and day,” she said. Rich said in order to run

a successful Town Council campaign in Chapel Hill, candidates generally need to raise at least $4,000. She said voter-owned elections forced her to interact with more people from across the community. Rich said she liked the program because it allowed candidates to focus more on the issues, and not having it will once again lead to races centered on fundraising. “It’s always in the back of your head that you need to get that $4,000 or $5,000.” Orange County Democratic Party chairman Matt Hughes said he was concerned that without public financing, valuable time will be diverted from community outreach to soliciting for contribu-

tions — something he thinks voter-owned elections were designed to prevent. “It really just takes the money part out of the equation,” he said. Contact the desk editor at city@dailytarheel.com.

The Franklin Hotel Signi cant ooding in parking deck damaged cars, and water damaged xtures throughout the rst- oor area.

On Monday morning, fans, squeegees and mops were out in full force on Franklin Street. By afternoon, most of them, and the water they had sought to dispel, were gone. But while some downtown business rebounded quickly from the deluge, Chapel Hill and Orange County officials warned residents to stay vigilant as storms remain in the forecast. Orange County Emergency Medical Services Director Jim Groves confirmed the county was in a state of emergency after the flooding, allowing local governments to seek federal disaster funding if it becomes available. As of Wednesday, officials estimated about 130 floodaffected residences in Chapel Hill had been condemned, but that number could rise as more single-family homes are evaluated. Some of the hardest-hit residential areas were Camelot Village Condominiums and Brookwood Townhomes, both on Estes Drive. At the storm’s peak, 41 people from some of those residences had been housed in a temporary shelter at Smith Middle School. By Tuesday night, that number had dropped to 19. In the 300 block of West Franklin Street, one of the lowest areas in downtown, substantial flooding damaged pavement, cars and some business merchandise and fixtures. But few business owners said they expected the cost of repairs to break the bank. Joey Lindsey, a Chapel Hill Comics employee, said though the store had a couple of inches of water throughout it, no merchandise or fixtures were lost. “We didn’t really have any

damage, which is amazing because water and comics don’t mix,” he said. Among those businesses that did need repairs, employees expected most of their costs to come from replacing sections of the floors and ceilings. Employees at stores such as The Bookshop, Nail Trix and Somethin’ Else all said they would need to make such repairs. A critical part of post-flood recovery for restaurants was inspection by the Orange County Health Department. On Monday, the department visited 53 restaurants in Chapel Hill — 17 on West Franklin Street alone. “(We) provided them with a guideline for cleaning, salvaging and renovating after a flood,” said Connie Pixley, an environmental health supervisor with the county. By late Monday, Pixley said most of the restaurants they had visited were open again, and none of them needed to have their permits revoked or re-evaluated. Though Sunday’s flooding overwhelmed stormwater systems throughout Chapel Hill, Mayor Mark Kleinschmidt said the town is not likely to discuss significantly changing those systems soon. “I do think it’s important to

DukeGanote, on a defeated bill to raise speed limits to 75 mph

nemployment is the lowest it’s been since 2009. The economy’s downward spiral has stopped spinning out of control. So why, I ask, is it so difficult to find unpaid work? I hear it all the time: “You’re still in college, you don’t need to worry about the job market yet.” But I think we all know that isn’t true — now is the time to get the experience and connections we’ll need to get full-time jobs post-graduation. I can’t speak for everyone, but I think I share the same inner monologue as many UNC students: Please, please, let me work for you for free. It’s July. I’ve gotten over feeling ridiculous when I admit that I applied for 45 summer internships. Of that list, I think a whole three were paid — minimum wage, that is. And the sad reality is that having an internship on our resume has become of the utmost importance for the majority of career paths. My mom said when she was in college, internships didn’t even really exist. Can you believe that? That is definitely something I struggle with, especially when I realize — wait a second — I’m paying to work for free. I could be spending my summer teaching swimming lessons, like I did in high school. I could be walking away from the season with a net gain of a few thousand dollars to put toward tuition and loans. Instead, I’m paying nearly $400 a month to commute an hour and a half each way to and from Manhattan every day. I’m fortunate enough to live with my parents over the summer, but without that luxury, the cost of an unpaid internship would make the experience virtually inaccessible. Then there’s food, the subway and incidentals to pay for — all of which pale in comparison to the cost of rent. So this is us: broke college students, working full-time with little to no income and certainly no time for an additional paid job, paying for rent, food and transportation while clinging to the hope that the effort will earn us a spot above the poverty line in the workforce when we leave Chapel Hill. And that’s just for the summer. Let’s not forget the everrising cost of tuition and living at school. All of that to maybe — just maybe — be able to afford a one-bedroom in Queens with four roommates, living on Saltines and peanut butter until I’m lucky enough to get a real job two years from now. I am an intern, trying to set up an eventual career for myself in New York City. This is not the first time I’ve asked myself if all the money down the drain will pay off — but will it? There’s one redeeming thought that keeps all of us poor interns going: While not in monetary funds, in experience, we are filthy, stinking rich. As for whether it’s all worth it, I’ll have to let you know.

Stay open, transparent
hancellor Carol Folt’s arrival marks a significant transition for the University, and also a unique opportunity. As UNC moves forward and attempts to progress beyond recent scandals, Folt should set a new tone of transparency and accountability, both in treating their stilldeveloping impacts and in handling similar problems in the future. This is a pivotal time for the University as it addresses the recent stains on its record. And Folt, a veteran leader from the outside, is in the optimal position to proactively and aggressively tackle the problems at the roots of these scandals before they’re ignored or forgotten. And Folt is not the only new face in UNC’s leadership. The collective base of fresh-faced University employees can and should bring light to past abuses without fear of blame or retribution. This fresh administration has the opportunity to wipe the slate clean and set the standard for how the University will approach issues in the future. Folt can ensure that all problems that arise are thoroughly investigated and resolved with the administration’s full cooperation.

Editorial

C

Folt has a chance to start a fresh, new chapter for UNC.

Uncovering the extent of issues and their roots is always in the University’s best interest, and a cooperative, constructive response when these sorts of problems first surface is better than dodging responsibility. The former administration consistently shifted blame and slowed the release of any school records, all to avoid any substantive admission of fault. Instead of hiding behind FERPA or scapegoating a few faculty members for a greater problem at the institutional level, Folt can lead UNC in approaching every issue as a University — rather than, for example, emphatically labeling a problem as “academic, not athletic,” just to ward off deeper criticism. Questionable academic practices in and around athletics departments represent a real, serious issue for many universities, and administrators should not shy away from it for fear of a little bad press — not when there’s an opportunity to serve as a role model for reform. In the past, when University officials did try to address issues, they turned to expensive outside consultants for solutions, and sometimes only for confirmation that the issues indeed existed. Had administrators accepted problems immediately, instead of avoiding recognizing them until forced to by a third party, the costly hires

would’ve been unnecessary. The scandals are already rooted in the University community, and those most affected can speak out and help. The Sexual Assault Task Force charged with reviewing University sexual assault policies, for example, represents an earnest attempt to access these voices. But the time it took for UNC leaders to admit a problem existed with current sexual assault policies and create the task force is embarrassing. A community-based approach to a resolution, however, is the only way to handle these sorts of issues responsibly and comprehensively. Folt has already proven she respects and will respond to concerns of students and others in the community, exemplified when she canceled classes at Dartmouth last semester in order to encourage discussions of safety and social justice after widespread student protests. Her position gives her the opportunity, and her record shows she’s ready to take advantage of it. Transparency and accountability should be the fundamental principles moving forward. If Folt doesn’t act to change UNC’s basic approach to controversy now, she’ll only be setting up the University for more challenges and potential embarrassments in the future.

TO THE EDITOR: This past weekend, UNC hosted a summer course at the College of Arts and Sciences, listed under “Programs in the Humanities and Human Values,” regarding Jane Austen — “Pride & Prejudice at 200.” Forget 200 — the registration cost for this select little gathering was $300 a person, which comes to $100 a day. Just what is UNC trying to be now — Duke? We live in a most inhumane time, when even the educated prefer cash up front to human values, but not all that different from the time in which Jane Austen lived. So to lighten my bitter feelings toward my alma mater, now grown too mercenary for the likes of me, I’d like to play a game of my own as a postscript to the “Pride & Prejudice” program: Could any Jane Austen heroine afford to attend this thing? Could Jane Austen herself afford to attend it? Somehow, I don’t see Elizabeth Bennet mingling with this group; still less, the Dashwood sisters of “Sense and Sensibility,” or Fanny Price of “Mansfield Park.” On the other hand, the comparatively thoughtless heiress Emma Woodhouse would be right at home. So also might be the vicious Caroline Bingley, the envious Maria Bertram and the downright devious Mary Crawford, all children of privilege. As for the author herself — whether she would choose to mix in such society, even if she could afford it, is a question I leave up to anyone who has truly got the point of her books. Page Davis ’80

Affirmative action is necessary to keep UNC strong.

Defend diversity
in the future when justifying affirmative action. Ethnic diversity on campus is a prime attraction for potential UNC applicants looking to broaden their horizons as part of the quintessential college experience. The multicultural nature of today’s workforce — and society in general — makes exposure to a wide spectrum of races and cultures all the more necessary. There were more than 6,000 undergraduate minority students enrolled at UNC last year. The University ranks among the top schools nationwide by minority graduation rate. UNC’s admissions office has studied the potential impact of race-neutral admissions — and evidence shows both diversity and academic quality of the University’s incoming freshman class would drop significantly if affirmative action was eliminated. Race must be used measuredly in admissions — the court made that clear. UNC should strive to stay within these limits while upholding its commitment to serving the diverse young people of North Carolina and the nation.

s affirmative action in college admissions continues to spark contention on a national level, UNC should not back down in defending its use of race as one factor when admitting students. In sending the Fisher v. University of Texas case back to a lower court for review last week, the U.S. Supreme Court left its stance on the issue ambiguous. But the justices made clear that schools would have to be more thorough

Global raging
A massive string of serious protests have been sweeping dozens of countries around the world for the last month. Targets range from animal cruelty to government corruption, and tactics range from civil disobedience to self-immolation. If there’s one thing we numerous, diverse world citizens can agree on, it’s that we’re pissed.

Waterlog flume
Chapel Hill and Carrboro briefly unified to become one big water park Sunday, replete with extensive car-pools, wading areas and a tide pool at University Mall, not to mention a couple of downed trees to keep things interesting. Charging admission would’ve been smart, too — we’ve got water damage like a sickly Bulbasaur.

Independent!
Today we wave little pieces of fabric and light things on fire to commemorate the day our stubborn, complicated country with a troubled past declared itself independent from its brutish, dirty uncle of a tyrannical monarch. We’re still trying 237 years later to live up to the poetry our angsty teen self came up with, but progress is progress.

NC under the table
Legislators Tuesday tacked a set of comprehensive restrictions on abortion onto a bill originally meant to ban consideration of foreign laws in state courts. No one will think to vote against it — because you know how dangerous foreign laws are in America, right? Looks like our xenophobia and our sexism are breeding one ugly baby.
