Airport not yet ready to land

Election bill bars college IDs from polls

The legislation sparked debate in a Senate committee Tuesday.
By Tara Jeffries

The proposed election omnibus bill could restrict where college students cast their ballots. The latest version of the bill, which passed the N.C. Senate Rules Committee Tuesday and was scheduled for debate Wednesday afternoon, would ratchet up restrictions on forms of photo ID accepted at the polls nixing public university and community college IDs from the list of valid identification. The bill, a more stringent version than the one passed by the N.C. House of Representatives in April, would also make it harder to use an expired ID. Legislators paired the latest ID requirements with election-related rules, including a ban on same-day registration and pre-registration of 16-year-olds, as well as a shortening of the early voting period from 17 days to 10. Opponents have decried the host of changes as undemocratic. More than half of N.C. voters cast their votes early in the last election, said Brent Laurenz, spokesman for the N.C. Center for Voter Education, during Rules Committee
DTH/brennan cumalander A provision to close the Chapel Hill airport at the start of next month has disappeared from the most recent version of the N.C. General Assemblys 2013-14 budget. There have been many attempts in recent years to close the UNC-owned airport, which has been open since 1928.

See voter id, Page 7

The latest version of the voter identification bill adds a number of restrictions at the voting booths. College IDs would not be considered a valid form of photo ID at polls. Sixteen-year-olds would no longer be able to pre-register to vote when they get their drivers licenses. The early voting period would be shortened by a week. Both straight-ticket party voting and same-day voter registration would be eliminated.

Historic Horace Williams Airport to stay open for now

By Daniel Schere

For more than 35 years, Robert Epting has been flying in and out of Horace Williams Airport. And for much of the time hes been using it, he said, Chapel Hill residents and University officials have been underestimating their local airports worth. The value of that airport for our community is often overlooked and misstated, said

Epting, a lawyer and former UNC professor. Since 2002, UNC officials have been attempting to close the airport in order to make way for the Universitys Carolina North satellite campus. One of the most recent attempts to close the airport came in an early version of the 2013 N.C. General Assembly budget, which would have closed Horace Williams on Aug. 1. The newest version of the budget, released Sunday, did not include a provision

to mandate the closing. But that doesnt guarantee the airport will remain open indefinitely. University spokeswoman Susan Hudson said no date has been set for the construction of Carolina North, as funding for the project has not been finalized. She said ultimately, the University will need the land the airport currently occupies.

for one wasnt expecting a 2013 N.C. General Assembly session that pulsed on for the entire summer, outlasting my tenure as The Daily Tar Heels State & National Editor. It certainly gave me and a number of national news outlets quite a lot to write about. But it wasnt press coverage to be proud of. There were the three competing budgets and unresolved tax reforms. There was the flurry of controversial bills emerging from the depths of committees at the last minute (guns and abortion, anyone?). And there arose a little civil disobedience that has swelled to national prominence under the label Moral Mondays. Catching wind of a protest happening at the legislature one midMay evening, I drove to Raleigh curious, a notepad and camera in hand. About two dozen people were wandering around Jones Street at 5:30 p.m., clutching signs but look-

Hairston outcome typical for students

Questions remain about whether the guard will play next season.
By Megan Cassella

ing confused. How does this work? people asked each other. Where do we go? As a reporter well-disguised in street clothes, I positioned myself near the fountain between the House and Senate chambers now a landmark of sorts, where more than 900 arrests have occurred since April 29. I stood so close to the chanting crowd, I was almost mistaken by police for a protestor when arrests began. Fast forward two months. Now there is a designated indoor media area, roped off yards away from

hundreds of roaring protestors. Thousands of others flood Halifax Mall. There is a stage, a list of speakers. There are signs of every color, chants of every kind. I often find myself flanked by MSNBC and ABC News. Its a thrilling feeling, in a sense. Celebrity journalists are working alongside me, covering my North Carolina my state. And in a flash I am saddened, for I know full well this state has graced headlines for the wrong reasons. Im not taking sides here. Im talking about extreme polarization, on both sides, at its partisan finest. I cant speak to what the legislatures atmosphere looked like 10 years ago, when a long-dominant Democratic Party enjoyed unrestrained control of the General Assembly and governors mansion. But I can speak to what Im seeing now, as a reporter trying to craft

With legal charges against P.J. Hairston dismissed, questions about whether the North Carolina shooting guard will be eligible to play next season have risen to the forefront of the discussion. Durham Court Deputy Clerk Monica Richardson said Monday that the two charges stemming from Hairstons June 5 arrest possession of marijuana and driving without a license had been dismissed. Still, athletic department spokesman Steve Kirschner said Wednesday that he could not comment on Hairstons eligibility for the upcoming season. According to court records,

Hairston completed an assessment relating to his drug charge July 19, and after obtaining and completing the assessment, the state chose not to pursue the charge further. Hairston was also able to present his valid drivers license. Director of Student Legal Services Dorothy Bernholz said while every county is different, allowing a student to complete an assessment before appearing in court for first offense drug and alcohol charges is common procedure in Orange County. An assessment looks at the individual based on exams and questions and so forth, Bernholz said, also referring to it as a conversation and an evaluation. She said the purpose of the assessment is to see if a student might have a serious problem with drug and alcohol abuse. The court will then review the assessment and any agreements made between

ublic health officials in Dubai could be putting Weight Watchers and Michelle Obama out of a job with their latest initiative. Instead of teaching good habits or trying to make it easier for dieters to eat healthy meals, theyre cutting all the fatty gimmicks and getting down to the meaty, capitalistic core: bribery. For every kilogram (a little more than 2 pounds) participants lose, they win a gram of gold. So the governments determinedly putting its money where its mouth is when it comes to rising rates of obesity more than we can say for Obama and school systems across America, am I right? But isnt this risky? Who knows what criminal element could arise from Dubais sweaty underbelly to take advantage of the situation.
NOTED. An enormous mobile sand dune in Tunisia is threatening Mos Espa, the birthplace of slave child Anakin Skywalker or at least the movie set from 1999. Now the Tunisian government is acting to protect it because even fossils from our cultural scrapheap can be critically significant to other nations economies. QUOTED. As we continue our journey of being a better, more relevant Taco Bell, (kids) meals and toys simply no longer make sense for us to put resources behind. Taco Bell, the cutting edge of modern fast food, decided Tuesday to discontinue kids meals. But fear not! Cheese roll-ups will still be featured on the regular menu.

County families, businesses to receive post-ooding aid

By Lauren Grady

Flood-affected Orange County businesses and homeowners are getting a helping hand from the government. In an effort to help with flood damage from last months torrential rains, Gov. Pat McCrory announced July 17 that the U.S. Small Business Administration will provide federal financial assistance to county families and businesses affected by the flooding. A Disaster Loan Outreach Center has been set up in University Mall and will remain open until Thursday at 6 p.m. While Im inspired by the resilience of those who have been impacted, we want to make all resources available for recovery efforts, McCrory said in a statement. We requested this assistance to get the people and businesses of Chapel Hill, Carrboro and surrounding areas back on their feet. According to the release, homeowners can receive loans as large as $200,000 to fix or compensate for structural damage. Loans of up to $40,000 are also available to home-

owners and renters to replace damaged personal property. Businesses and nonprofits can apply for loans of up to $2 million or receive a working capital loan. Though residents of Alamance, Caswell, Chatham, Durham and Person counties do not directly qualify for the assistance, people in those counties may fit the criteria for a state grant. Chapel Hill Mayor Mark Kleinschmidt said he is grateful for the funding and hopes residents and businesses can access it quickly and easily. It cant be measured in dollars alone the destruction, the pain, the challenges of building after theyve been hit by that kind of crisis, Kleinschmidt said. When it comes to funding and supporting people who have been displaced, its about doing what we can to ease that pain and compensate for the destruction of peoples lives. Stan Morris, executive director of the central North Carolina chapter of the American Red Cross, said his organization is working to help people with damaged or destroyed homes. He said the Red Cross is ensuring

that people have housing, clothing, medical aid and counseling, if needed. Mainly were doing case work, Morris said. Were trying to broker resources for families and pair them with partners of ours that could donate things. Those partners include The Green Chair Project, a nonprofit in Wake County that accepts donated furniture and resells it to people in need at a low cost. Morris said the Red Cross is now in the recovery stage. Red Cross mission is to make a huge difference at the time of the event, he said.

New position to focus on public affairs

The vice chancellor for communications will deal with media outlets.
By Andy Willard

Chancellor Carol Folt ushered in a new administration when she began this month but it is not yet complete. Folt created the position of vice chancellor for communications and public affairs in May after discussions with former Chancellor Holden Thorp. According to the Universitys job description, the vice chancellor will be responsible for the strategic management for all of UNCs public relations and affairs. He or she will also have direct oversight of various offices that

serve as media outlets for the University. Julia Grumbles, the interim vice chancellor for University advancement, is the chairwoman of the search committee. Grumbles said the University will join other peer institutions including Folts former employer Dartmouth College in creating a position like this one. She said the position was not created to play defense for the University. I look at this more proactively, she said. Weve got to get information out faster, quicker and more strategically. Grumbles said she felt confident her nine-person committee would find the right person for the job. She said members such as Director of Sports Information Steve Kirschner and Karen

McCall, vice president of public affairs and marketing at UNC School of Medicine, will be crucial to the selection process. They really have to deal with the public every single day, so they have a real vested interest, Grumbles said. The committee also includes members from outside the University, such as Don Baer and Jim Mahoney, who are both leaders in the corporate world, Grumbles said. Grumbles said the committee wants to choose a candidate who is dynamic and can help the University become better equipped to handle the complex media landscape. You have to respond almost minute by minute and were not structured that way yet, she said. Search committee mem-

ber Susan King, dean of the School of Journalism and Mass Communication, said the selection process is just beginning. Those on the committee will help define what this job will be moving forward, she said. King said she is looking for a broad understanding of communications in the candidates as well as someone who can handle a crisis. But she added there are other qualities necessary to succeed at a position such as this one. Youve got to have the right personality, youve got to love answering the phone, youve got to love talking to The Daily Tar Heel, King said. Grumbles said the committee is working aggressively but admitted there was no set date to pick a candidate. Were not going to rush just to get someone in there.

Tax-free weekend to come to an end

By Cammie Bellamy

A popular tax holiday geared toward back-to-school shoppers is set to end after this year, and some local school officials say they have concerns about the costs to families. On Tuesday, Gov. Pat McCrory signed an N.C. General Assembly tax reform package into law reform that does away with the sales tax holiday known as TaxFree Weekend. During the holiday, which has taken place in early August every year since 2002, shoppers can purchase items like school supplies, clothing and computers without paying sales tax. But in an attempt to increase tax revenues, the General Assembly budget ends the program after this year, something that worries some in Chapel HillCarrboro City Schools. CHCCS spokesman Jeff Nash said in an email that ending the holiday could make it harder for families to purchase school supplies. The budget coming from our legislators is harmful in many ways, Nash said. The removal of the tax-free weekend will take more money from the pockets of our parents as they equip their

children for school. James Barrett, a member of the CHCCS Board of Education and a father of two school-age children, said Tax-Free Weekend allows district families to stretch their dollars. Its a significant price difference, he said. People are going to have to cut back in what they purchase. Barrett said he thought ending the holiday was not a necessary fiscal move for state government. I think that for our parents and students, getting school supplies is a very important thing, and the opportunity to do it cheaper for one week a year is not too much to ask, he said. Its obvious that the General Assembly is very focused on lowering taxes for the wealthy and making the rest of us pay more. But while shoppers might see lower savings in the short term, ending the tax holiday would likely be profitable for government. Douglas Shackelford, associate dean of the MBA@UNC program and a professor in the KenanFlagler Business School, said ending the holiday might increase revenues in the long run. Its a tax increase of sorts, and it will collect some revenue that weve been letting slip through,

A long-anticipated method of measuring of students academic performance has been stalled another year. Contextualized transcripts a measure to increase transparency by showing what a grade in one course might mean in comparison to another were first slated to be put in place at UNC in fall 2012, and later were delayed until 2013. Now, the transcripts have been put on hold once again while the University implements a new payroll and finance system on ConnectCarolina, said Chris Derickson, the Universitys registrar. (Information Technology Services) will need to be heavily involved in the design, development and programming efforts required to implement the contextualized transcript, he said. And with so much of their efforts focused on another enormous system transition, the decision was made to push back the contextualized transcript one year until fall 2014. The Faculty Council first finalized plans to implement a contextual grade report in 2011. But Derickson said a group of planners including members of ITS and faculty concluded early on that a more realistic implementation date would be fall 2013. Derickson said the contextualized transcripts will include the median grade awarded in a class, class size and the percentile in which the students grade falls for all classes with 10 or more students. The transcripts will also include the schedule point average the GPA of a median student enrolled in a students mix of course sections and the number of class sections for which the student performed below, on or above average for each term. Derickson said the change will only affect those students who enroll in fall 2014 or later. Andrew Perrin, associate professor of sociology and former chairman of the educational policy committee, which developed the plan, said calculating GPA alone is a flawed system of interpreting students academic performance. He said he feels that contextual grade reporting will help to combat some of the discrepancies between students grades caused by factors such as instructors grading styles. Information about how students performed relative to other students will be easier to figure out, Perrin said. So it will provide better information as to what any given grade means on a students transcript. Perrin said he feels grade inflation is a problem at UNC. I think thats been very clearly documented, Perrin said. Donna Gilleskie, an economics professor, said she feels the contextual grade reporting will help fight three issues with grading at UNC grading equality, grade compression and grade inflation. She said although the new measure will not directly combat grade inflation, she feels it will start discussion among faculty about what awarded grades mean. Christine Shin, a sophomore prepharmacy student, said she wouldnt be as comfortable exploring classes outside of her major under the new system. She said she would be more hesitant to sign up for a class that she was unfamiliar with, like economics. My transcript (would) still have statistics comparing me to other people that may be (economics) majors, Shin said. I believe I am a competitive person, but I also like to explore uncharted areas. But senior journalism major Taylor George said she thinks contextualized transcripts could be beneficial and fair. The time and effort required to get an A in one course can be a fraction of the time and effort required to get an A in another. I think it could have a significant effect on people applying for graduate school for better or for worse.

UNC-1 network to be phased out on campus by fall break this year

he said. Shackelford said the current savings of Tax-Free Weekend might not even be significant, given frequent fluctuations in retail prices. He said shoppers would be able to make up for the tax change with adjustments to purchasing habits. You can just think about the tax holiday as just another sale, he said. I have in mind that I have $100 that I can spend on whatever. And to me, it doesnt matter who its going to the store, the state, the municipality. When the $100 is spent, Im coming home.

He said while many shoppers might not be happy about losing the holiday, he thought most would eventually adjust. The first year or two that it doesnt exist, people will be unhappy, he said. We didnt have the tax holiday for many, many years. School opened in the fall and things went along fine.

High expectations for UNC football

By Max Miceli

With a new head coach leading the way last year, the North Carolina football team went 8-4, topped the Coastal Division and earned its best record since 1997. Now, with a year of experience already behind coach Larry Fedora, the Tar Heels know their coachs expectations and system even better this time around. Its not even close, knowledge-wise," Fedora said at the ACC Football Kickoff in Greensboro Saturday. They understand the scheme now. They understand whats expected. Now what you get to see is guys arent thinking all the time. Because football players, Fedora said, perform best when they dont have to concentrate on plays. Now that the Tar Heels have had a year to get comfortable with his system, they have a chance to thrive, he said. (Players) that have to think about what to do with

their feet arent moving fast. They dont look athletic, Fedora said. Now youre getting to see guys turn it loose and just play football. But its not like the Tar Heels werent playing football last year. With averages of 40.6 points and 485.6 yards per game, UNC set several Tar Heel records offensively but quarterback Bryn Renner admitted the team didnt fully understand the pace with which Fedora wanted them to play. I was running around like a chicken with my head cut off, not knowing where everybody was, Renner said. Its tough to play with confidence like that. The role is reversed this year. Renner who currently boasts a career 154.59 efficiency rating added he didnt feel like the team had a solid grasp on Fedoras system until its week six matchup against Virginia Tech, even though the Tar Heels scored at least 27 points in each of

their first five games. This year, after hard work by individual players in the offseason and small adjustments made to the offensive scheme, Renner said he thinks the offense has a chance to do better than they did in 2012, despite losing second-team All-American Giovani Bernard. Last year was a good stepping stone, Renner said. But I think we want to build off that. Second-team All-ACC defensive end Kareem Martin and members of the Tar Heel defense are also looking to improve on a season one in which they ranked third nationally in tackles for a loss, with 8.1 per game. And going into his senior season, Martin said he is expecting to help young players learn UNC's complicated defense in the easiest way possible. For some guys its definitely difficult to learn, Martin said. I don't think thatll be a big problem after being with (Fedora) one year. (Veterans)

dth file photo Coach Larry Fedora will bring his charisma to the Tar Heel football team for a second year, but this time around, the Tar Heels know what he expects and are looking to imrpove on the 2012 season.

are able to teach it to guys and maybe simplify it for them. Martin said the familiarity between players and coaches will help UNC be even more

successful this year. Last year we were still trying to learn (about) each other as players and coaches, he said.

Now that thats over with I think we can definitely (perform better), because we know what they expect from us.

Lauren Sacks, chairwoman of the FallFest committee, said the event will be moved to Fetzer Hall gyms A and B if the weather is poor. Sacks said about 20,000 students usually attend FallFest each year. She said safety will be a main priority if the event is moved to the smaller indoor venue. The capacity for Fetzer A and B is a lot smaller than 20,000, so were working with the Department of Public Safety and the fire marshal to determine how to make sure that we get as many people in there as we can, but that we do it in a safe way, Sacks said. That being said, if its a torrential downpour, my guess is that its going to limit some people from coming to the event anyway. If the event is moved

indoors, there will not be room to have student performances or to have inflatables and other games that are usually held outdoors during the event, Sacks said. But there would be a climbing wall, and many of the scheduled food vendors would be transported to the backup location in the event of rain, she said. A DJ scheduled to play between sets of student performances will provide music at the festival whether it is held inside or outside. Its really difficult to stage an event of this size and scope thats really based so much on the outdoor nature of the event, Sacks said. That being said, what we heard most last year when the event was canceled was that people missed the representation of all the different student organizations.

Sacks said she wants to ensure that student organizations get as much exposure as possible, and that moving FallFest indoors during the scheduled time is more practical than rescheduling FallFest events once school is in session which is what administrators did last year after the festival was canceled. It will definitely be a smaller version of what FallFest would be, but were hopeful that if we cant get all student organizations that were registered for FallFest there that we will at least have as many as we possibly can in that space, she said. Last year, FallFest was canceled due to storms, and some student groups have said their enrollment decreased because of it. Kiever Hunter, the outreach coordinator for WXYC, said the student-run radio station did not have as many applicants in 2012 as it has had in previous years, and that the cancellation of FallFest likely contributed to the decrease.

(It) allows for all of the organizations to be presented before the student body in one place and makes finding (a) specific group much, much easier, he said in an email. Still, many student groups said they were able to recruit participants with smaller, rescheduled events and their own marketing efforts. Kelsey Rupp, former editor of the Carolina Review, said she was pleased with the number of new writers who joined last year after reading the journal or seeing advertisements posted on campus. We are not an organization whose presence is noticed or felt on UNC's campus only at FallFest, Rupp said in an email. Through our publication we have a continued presence on campus and because of that we get recruits to the Review throughout the year. Sacks said if the weather is poor, a decision on whether or not to move the festival inside will be made by early afternoon on the day of the event.

Leaders talk energy costs

UNC-system schools have pledged to save $1 billion in 20 years.
By Jordan Bailey

Campus offers rentals

Students, faculty and leaders from colleges across the state came together last week to further discussions on energy conservation with an ultimate goal of saving $1 billion in energy avoidance costs in mind. Representatives from the 16 UNC-system schools and five private colleges in the state convened at the Appalachian Energy Summit for the second consecutive year. Attendees shared energy conservation goals and discussed the past year's successes. At the inaugural summit last year, each school pledged to reduce energy costs over the next 20 years to collectively save $1 billion in that time.

UNC-system President Tom Ross and Gov. Pat McCrory also attended the summit to show their support. President Tom Ross was a big proponent of doing this, said Phil Barner, UNCs director of energy services. Barner attended this years event and said there was a variety of workshops available to participants, including those centered around regulatory finance and energy generation and green building construction, as well as workshops geared toward students. Chris Martin, UNCs director of energy management, said he participated in a focus group that explored ways to engage the community college system in preparing technicians to do energy-efficient work. He said his group also worked on developing ways to offer energy conservation training to facility managers across the schools. Our group was looking at how to engage each other

better and share expertise amongst ourselves, he said. Victoria Petermann, a junior and member of Beyond Coal, attended the inaugural summit last year. She said was impressed with the efforts that schools in the state are making to reduce energy consumption. We wanted to see how we could become part of the conversation as students, she said. I ended up being really impressed and excited about the fact that our universities are really getting on board with this now. Martin said one thing UNC is doing this year to contribute to the summit's chief savings goal is utilizing an N.C. House of Representatives bill. He said the bill allows the University to keep its savings in energy avoidance costs on campus, under the condition that at least 60 percent of the funds goes to energy conservation projects the following year. Before the bill was passed,

savings from energy avoidance costs went back to the state. Martin said UNC administrators decided to devote the entirety of the leftover funds rather than just the required 60 percent to campus conservation projects. So what that means for us ... is about $1.6 million in projects that have significant (reduction of ) energy consumption impacts, he said. So its not a trivial amount of money in our case. Jessica OHara, UNCs energy analyst, said its important for the University to be a leader in conservation projects. UNC is the one everybody looks to for leadership were one of the top schools. So for us to be able to set an example and to be able to show, Hey, look what were doing at our University, and to share those with other schools when we go to these summits is awesome because that lets them see, Hey, we could be doing this.

Hedgepeth granted sorority honor

The Native American sorority extended membership in July.

her death. She was very close with a lot of the sisters on campus and participated in a lot of the activities that they were involved in, she said. Symphony Oxendine, the grand president of the sorority, said Hedgepeths family will receive membership paraphernalia in her honor. Hedgepeth will also be listed as a member of the Pi chapter of the sorority, which is the chapter for members who have passed away, Symphony Oxendine said. Locklear said Hedgepeth was involved in several activi-

attend the show

Time: 8 p.m. tonight Location: Carrboro ArtsCenter Info:

Four North Carolina singer-songwriters will perform an encore in Carrboro tonight of a show they first played in March. The ArtsCenters Songwriters Round will feature Katharine Whalen, best known for her work with the 1990s band Squirrel Nut Zippers; Justin Robinson, a member of the Grammywinning Carolina Chocolate Drops; and solo folk artists Shawn Luby and Christy Smith. Whalen said the same group of singer-songwriters performed at a show in March that Luby organized at The Casbah in Durham. Were all friends, were all songwriters, and I think he just asked around, and we were the four that were available, Whalen said. It was so fun the first time, I thought, Lets do it again. Whalen said she emailed Art Menius, the executive director of The ArtsCenter, to see if he would be interested in putting on another show by the four musicians. She said she thought the organizations atmosphere would be perfect for the show. I knew it was more amenable to something like this coming in, Whalen said. (The performance will) not be a big touring act. Its not a big, late-night, drinking liquor, rock n roll show, she said. Menius said putting on a show with artists of the groups caliber would help The ArtsCenters reputation as a venue for folk music. The ArtsCenter offers a warm, friendly room and a supportive audience, and were focusing more and more on being the venue

for folk, singer-songwriter, blues, old-time and bluegrass, he said. Our goal is to be the premier venue for all kinds of folk artists between Atlanta and D.C. Smith said the musical diversity of the artists made performing with the group attractive to her. Its extremely inspiring for me to see the way were all trying to achieve the same end, which is to express ourselves and to explore the ups and downs of life and relationships, she said. Whalen said the format of the show will offer some unique characteristics that separate it from most concerts. Its not your usual concert where you go and you just hear some songs, she said. Everybody has really good stories, and everybody has a really interesting character. Its almost more like theater to me. She said the solo aspect of the show made the intimacy of the songs they perform stand out. Theres more psyching yourself up mentally, but also being really exposed preparing yourself to expose your songs to people, she said. When I was listening to the other songwriters at the one we did in Durham at The Casbah, everybody was putting really personal stuff in their songs, whether it was veiled or completely transparent its different to expose yourself that way.

This month, members of a Native American sorority on campus unanimously agreed to extend honorary membership to Faith Hedgepeth, a UNC student who was found dead in her off-campus apartment last year. Leslie Locklear, president of the Alpha Pi Omega sorority for the the 2012-13 year, said the organization decided to make Hedgepeth an honorary member because of her expressed interest in the organization. She said many people knew how engaged Hedgepeth was. That was the main reason why we sought to make sure her dream of becoming a member of this sorority was fulfilled despite everything that has occurred, Locklear said. No arrests have been made in connection with Hedgepeths homicide case to date, and the Durham County Clerk of Superior Courts office resealed records regarding her case for another 60 days on July 19. The records have been resealed several times this year. Locklear said Hedgepeth is just the second person in the organizations history to receive honorary membership. Ashley Oxendine, the Alpha chapters alumnae adviser, said though Hedgepeth never got the chance to become a member during her time at UNC, she attended several of the organizations interest meetings and was participating in a recruitment event hosted by the sorority the night before

ties on campus that brought recognition to American Indians. Faith participated in the Carolina Indian Circle, and she also participated in events with the Office of Diversity and Multicultural Affairs, Locklear said. Anything to bring recognition to Native Americans, and specifically her tribe, was definitely something that she wanted to be involved in. Ashley Oxendine said Alpha Pi Omega was the first American Indian Greek-letter organization in the country, and was founded at UNC nearly 20 years ago. Locklear said she is glad to

see Hedgepeth named as an honorary member because joining the sorority was something she had aspired to do during her time on campus. She was an amazing, inspiring person, she said. She was beautiful on the inside and out, always motivational and she was one of the most optimistic people that I have ever met in my entire life. Locklear said Hedgepeths honorary membership will grant her all the same rights as a sister who was inducted. Its great to know that shes still given that, she said. Its something that she definitely wanted.

Lowery to spearhead oral history program

Malinda Lowery was tapped for the job earlier this month.
By Sarah Chaney

The new director of the Southern Oral History Program will bring a passion for history and an interest in her own Native American background to the job. History professor Malinda Lowery, who was chosen to lead the program earlier this month, said she has always found sitting down to talk with her community members fascinating. She said she has heard stories of her elders since birth,

which inspired her to make documentaries in college. When Im surrounded by my family or other elders in the community and Im listening to them talk, I feel like I could do that forever, Lowery said. Lowery said she studied Lumbee history during segregation in North Carolina as a graduate student, and she has made several documentary films on Native Americans. She said she is currently working on films about domestic violence and the local food movement. So I have a lot of different interests, she said. In her new role as director of the 40-year program, Lowery said she will be able to

Malinda Lowery, a history professor, will bring an interest in her Native American roots to the job.
encourage the University community to explore the world around it by answering what she called the fundamental question of history why? Whether its a positive situation in society or a negative one, history is where we go to understand the answer to the question why, Lowery said. Lowery said as director, she wants to ensure that the UNC community understands how renowned the Southern

Oral History Program is. The program, one of the oldest of its kind in the country, boasts one of the most widely used historical collections and more than 5,000 interviews, Lowery said. Rachel Seidman, assistant director of the program, said the collection aims to gather interviews from people whose voices arent typically reflected in history books. She said they collect stories from people ranging from mill workers to civil rights activists to politicians. Lowery said she enjoys listening to life stories of others. When someone takes the time to sit down and ... tell you about their life experiences their struggles and

their joys the way that they talk about their lives I find intensely fascinating. Seidman said the program is important for the research, teaching and outreach missions of the University, and Lowerys experience in these areas makes her fit for the job. Jacquelyn Hall, founding director of the program, said she thinks Lowerys selection was a good decision. She brings a deep understanding of the program and its culture and its history, and

shes contributed to that herself, Hall said. The program provides resources for students to do their own research on a variety of subjects outside of the history department, such as anthropology, folklore and health sciences, Lowery said. Seidman said taking advantage of these resources may be key in reflecting on the state of the University. Its important to step back and consider the voices of the past, she said.

Voter ID
debate. Opponents have said they worry the restrictions could shrink the N.C. electorate, potentially curbing college student participation. This is just a new attack on youth, said Bob Hall, executive director of Democracy N.C. UNC law professor Kareem Crayton said in an email the legislation could trim voter turnout in some minority groups that typically support Democratic candidates. Low-income, elderly and nonwhite voters, in addition to young people, could have trouble voting under the new bill, Crayton said. But advocates have touted the need for election reform, saying the legislation would ramp up election transparency and root out voter fraud. People will have more confidence in an electoral system with some safeguards, just as they prefer to deposit money in banks that have locks on the door, said Jay DeLancy, executive director of Voter Integrity Project of N.C., in an email. DeLancy cited a study by the right-leaning Heritage Foundation showing that similar ID laws in Georgia and Indiana spurred a spike in minority participation compared to demographically similar neighboring states in 2008. On both sides, the debate is mired in ideology, DeLancy said. One side denies the existence of voter fraud and accuses us of being in the tank for their opponents, he said. The other side gets mad at us when we criticize their wimpy laws that dont really fix the problem. We are just sick of the glaring vulnerabilities to the electoral system and the fact that politicians in both parties do not seem too motivated to fix them. Ending voter fraud is the

We have been able to do some infrastructure work at Carolina North, she said in an email. But we will need to close the airport to start construction on the first building there because most of the development area for Carolina North is located on or near the runway.

Nearly 90 years of flight

First opened in 1928, the airport was bought by UNC and named for former philosophy professor Henry Horace Williams after he died in 1940. During World War II, it served as a Navy pre-flight training school and saw former presidents Gerald Ford and George H.W. Bush pass through, along with baseball player Ted Williams. John Hunter, an instructor with the Wings of Carolina Flying Club since 1974, said in the 1980s there were reduced zoning laws in Chapel Hill, which led to a large increase in development on the north side of town around the airport. People built like crazy out there, he said. He said one citizens group, Citizens for Airport Planning, was so opposed to the airports operation that members attempted to steal the clubs membership list. Until 2011, the airport was used by UNC Hospitals

Medical Air Operations. Those operations have since been moved to RaleighDurham International Airport in advance of a potential Horace Williams closing. Epting said he hopes the airport is remembered as a vital piece of Chapel Hills history. It ought not (to) be forgotten in the long run, he said, saying he thought it was unusual for a university town with an airport to close it in order to make way for future development.

Pilots contest closure

Amidst ongoing efforts to shut down the airport, several pilots still argue it is useful to the community. Most universities regard having an airport as a tremendous asset, said Chapel Hill resident and pilot George Scheer. Scheer grew up in Chapel Hill and learned to fly at the airport from family friends. He later became an instructor with the Chapel Hill Flying Club, until it relocated to Sanford-Lee County Airport in 2001 and was renamed the Wings of Carolina Flying Club. Horace Williams has been a big part of my life for many

years, he said. Its a place that welcomes visitors. Scheer said the town and the University have changed positions on what should be done with the land, but they had no specific use for it until recently. The University has been very ambivalent about that airport, he said. Hunter said he thought political pressure has led to the airports demise. The University caved in years ago to shutting off options and making it less attractive, he said. Yet some town officials say it is time for the the airport to go. Chapel Hill Town Council member Jim Ward said the community has been talking about closing it for 35 years. He said he thinks by doing so, Carolina North will be able to move forward, and there will be fewer safety risks. In 2010, a plane crash at Horace Williams killed one man and injured two others. Every once in a while, planes fall out of the sky, he said. But Ward said he recognizes that the airport serves an important function and hopes that it is relocated. Its a conversation Im willing to have, he said.

state politics

an accurate portrayal of the scene. Its Republicans, emboldened by their majority status, pursuing conservative policies to revamp North Carolina after decades of lying dormant. Its Democrats, decrying the oppositions sweeping efforts to turn back years of what they champion as true legislative progress. Moral Monday demonstrators have joined the latter party en masse, railing against newly proposed voting restrictions and education cuts, pulling further left in retaliation as the General Assembly continues to pull right.

No matter that legislative productivity is at a decent level. I have witnessed a dearth of reasonable compromise. Fresh on my mind is the recent fire sparked by a pair of abortion bills. Legislators argued over them largely with emotional appeals, not with facts. Actually, the House floor exchange two weeks ago couldnt be called debate. It was attack. This is a wolf in sheeps clothing, asserted Rep. Jean Farmer-Butterfield. There is not a war on women, retorted Rep. Sarah Stevens. What. Are. We. Doing? implored Rep. Becky Carney. People are dying at abortion clinics! Rep. Ruth Samuelson exclaimed.

And the pointed debate was pointless. The vote was nearly along party lines. A decision on Senate Bill 353 was likely set in stone before legislators had even entered the chamber. This no-mans-land between the two political parties has given me plenty to write about over the last three months, but far less to celebrate. I do not want to see North Carolina leaders give the national media an excuse to ridicule this state any longer. When legislators return for the short session in January, Im challenging them to get us back on track for newspaper headlines that will enhance the states respect nationwide. Ill have my pen at the ready.

ultimate goal, he said one that should transcend party lines. The real question involves whether or not we want elections that minimize fraud as much as humanly possible. Still, opponents say the current system doesnt need a tune-up. The systems working well and does a good job of balancing access and security, Laurenz said. The ID policys 2016 launch date would allow the state time to prepare voters for the shift in policy, he said. But the bills ban on college IDs could strike a harsh blow to the already tenuous youth turnout rate, Hall said. Also, out-of-state drivers licenses would not be acceptable, so thats a double whammy against college students, and it will add more barriers that theyll have to overcome, he said. Some college students who

lack a valid photo ID might not try to obtain one, which could lead to a dip in the youth vote, Crayton said. But the ban on college IDs could make some college students conscious of the long-term reach of their vote, DeLancy said. He said students should vote in their hometowns using absentee ballots because their parents homes are more permanent residences. And this approach is nothing new, he said military personnel vote with absentee ballots in a similar manner. The legislation would allow voters without valid ID to cast a provisional ballot and later present an ID to their local Board of Elections, Laurenz said. The bill might lead to voter confusion, he said, which could leave some voters turned away from the polls. One voter being left out is one too many.

the prosecutor and the individual student and decide whether to dismiss charges. It all depends on the circumstances, she said. But Bernholz said Durham County, where Hairston was arrested and charged, could have a different standard because of its higher number of arrests and serious cases. Every district attorney has a different approach for processing these misdemeanors. According to court records, two passengers who were arrested along with Hairston, Carlos Sanford and Miykael Faulcon, still face charges of possession of marijuana. At the time of his arrest, Hairston was driving a rented 2013 GMC Yukon a car that USA Today first reported was rented by Haydn Fats Thomas, a felon with a lengthy criminal record. Under NCAA rules,

Hairstons use of Thomas rental could be an impermissible benefit, depending on the nature of their relationship. Sports law expert and legal analyst Michael McCann said in an email the NCAA could choose to suspend Hairston for the season, but he said he believes the organization will want to first verify that Hairston and Thomas relationship is an improper one. A person even a convicted felon renting a car for a college student athlete is probably not, in and of itself, enough to warrant a sanction, since there are circumstances when that could arise where it has nothing to do with sports, McCann said. If UNC determines that Hairston has committed a violation affecting eligibility, the school must declare him ineligible to the NCAA, according to organization guidelines. The University must then investigate the situation and submit a reinstatement

request to the NCAA. The NCAA will consider the nature and seriousness of the violation, impermissible benefits received and the student athletes level of responsibility. The UNC basketball program has not spoken since Hairstons charges were dismissed, but coach Roy Williams said in a statement July 15 that Hairston would face serious consequences. Senior writer Brooke Pryor contributed reporting.

Ill see him and his frat-star hat on Franklin by FallFest. Aw yea, P.J.s freer than that shitty purple stuff at Sig Ep. Describe the kvetching board in three words: Drunk. Squirrel. Sex. Social liberals: committed to helping the less fortunate ... unless its still inside a vagina. Dear universe: Nothing starts a day better than watching a hawk swoop down like an angel of death and tear into a squirrel right in front of me. Ellie Kinnaird: the original raging granny. Chapel Hill needs to ban running shirtless, except for the tan guy wearing Lululemons. If God was kind, you would have many more brothers. To my ancient professor: Just because you cant hear your farts doesnt mean we cant. To my landlord who charged a penny for utility overages, then wouldnt take cash: Your bureaucratic bullshit puts the General Assembly to shame. Love that my DTH is always dry, but those newspaper boxes are vicious finger death traps. Dear roommate: For someone who weighs only 125 pounds, you stomp around like an elephant in heat. Reading through archived kvetches, I realize just how obsessed with sex everyone is. Chill out and try going on a date theres more to life. Haha, yeah. Thats my blood. Send your one-to-two sentence entries to, subject line kvetch.

had barely been back in town two hours this summer when one of my new superiors turned to look me squarely in the eye. Youre a little underdressed. I was at my first training session to become a student tour guide, and I was wearing, I thought, college-kid clothes. This wasnt great, he said. I was supposed to dress nicer than a normal student, while still posing as a normal student. It was all about the image. Campus tours, no matter how the average prospective student perceives them, have become a science. Theres marketing involved, and theres effort put forth into selling an image of the idyllic Carolina, the nations first public university. Theres a litany of things tour guides are encouraged to mention, another of those we should try to avoid. And along with dressing nicely, theres a whole host of unspoken rules. Dont put down other schools, not even Duke. Dont talk about drinking, even to condemn it. Avoid mention of scandal; walk slowly; talk loudly. Share personal experiences. Laugh. Then theres plenty of trial and error mixed into it, too the stories that get funnier the more times you tell them, mixed with the ones you learn will always fall flat. Telling groups you can tack food money onto the bottom of your tuition bill, for example, makes the teenagers excited and the dads cringe. Explaining the merits of SafeWalk reassures the moms while the kids eyes glaze over. And playing the role of the Northern girl on the Southern campus I really did once take a class that turned into Me vs. Those Born Far Below the Mason-Dixon makes everyone laugh, every time. But as candid as Ive been with my tour groups, theres one thing Ive never told any of them: what my second job is. I held two roles this summer. And when I started, I thought they couldnt be more different. Three or four times a week, I act as the Universitys cheerleader, steadfastly skating over its institutional flaws. And the rest of the time, Im at The Daily Tar Heel, a University watchdog trained to home in on campus missteps. But as the summer winds down, the similarities between my two jobs have grown more obvious than the differences. Know your audience. Act as a storyteller. Be honest and say it well, in good sentences. Because when it comes down to it, everyone here prospective student, overeager parent, community member deserves to know the Carolina weve all gotten to know, its quiet intimations rather than its glorified brand. And whether we found that through reporting or through day-to-day interaction, through semester after semester spent on campus well, maybe those arent so different, after all.

UNCs cover-up culture

his week, The News & Observer reported that Faculty Council chairwoman Jan Boxill pushed the authors of a 2012 report on academic fraud to water down its language the latest in a long line of blows to the reputation of University leadership. More than an ethical


Boxills actions highlight the need for transparency.

failing on Boxills part, the case is yet another instance of UNCs unwillingness to take transparency seriously. Like nearly every other revelation in the now yearslong academic scandal, Boxills actions were uncovered through an outside investigation not selfreported by the University. And as news items pile up about administrative cover-ups, its time to ask when UNC will take some responsibility for its image. The Boxill debacle has

made one thing abundantly clear even as the University claims to be coming clean, there are still wrongs to be uncovered and people at UNC who know about them. If administrators continue to let the scandal play out in piecemeal incidents with no serious attempt to shine sunlight on University problems, UNC may never be able to repair its reputation. It may hurt, but its time to rip off the Band-Aid.

Keep students voting

he voter ID bill in the N.C. General Assembly unjustly targets those groups that would vote against the Republicans in power and their restrictions for college students are particularly severe. Making voting more


Voter ID unfairly targets liberal demographics.

complicated and inconvenient than it already is is the last thing the state should be doing. One restriction says college IDs would not be valid identification for students at the polls, which would seriously discourage those students without N.C. drivers licenses. A free alternative ID would be available, but the time and effort required to obtain it would keep some

from voting. Bill supporters say students should only vote in their home districts, but students invest a lot in their college towns and often live there after they graduate theyre not just visitors. The limits on students should be scrapped, and the General Assembly should shoot the entire bill down. Republicans cant stave off millennial voters forever, but theyre certainly trying.

Beyond hipsterdom
Stop worrying about the mainstream and get back to basics.
ere you a hipster before being a hipster was cool? Brace yourself, because your once-exclusive subculture is now the latest trend nowadays, its mainstream to make fun of people who are mainstream. Confusing, right? Ill admit Ive had my own hipster moment while working a Kid Rock concert this summer. As people flocked the venue gates, I watched in dismay, silently mourning the deaths of paychecks lost to see Kid Rock play his Sweet Home Alabama rendition from a few summers ago. But amidst the sea of arms and white phone lights illuminating the crowd as it anticipated his entrance, I saw a familiar sight. I saw a group of people who truly connected to Kid Rock and found solace in his songs, just as I did with my favorite artists. It was simple. They love their music the same way I love mine. And in losing sight of that, I became hipsterdoms


TO THE EDITOR: The N.C. General Assembly, with Gov. McCrorys help, has done one thing well recently propose and pass terrible legislation. In a few months, they covered conservative bases by repealing the Racial Justice Act, loosening gun laws and proposing a voter ID bill and abortion restrictions. Now, the legislature is hitting North Carolinians with a more mundane sucker punch: a flattened tax code. The House and Senate compromise plan eliminates the established personal income tax structure in favor of a more regressive rate, reduces the rate on corporate income to a mere 3 percent by 2017 and eliminates important tax credits for low- and middle-income families. These kinds of changes are commonly referred to as flattening the tax code. It sounds nice flatten taxes to make everything fairer. However, in reality, flattening the tax code means making rich people pay less and poor people pay more. According to the N.C. Justice Center, people with incomes of nearly $1 million would receive a tax cut of almost $10,000, while the bottom 80 percent would pay more on average. Flattened tax code is a deceptive catchphrase like pro-life, traditional families or school choice, and it only tricks the electorate. Behind this rhetoric lies ignorance, contempt and greed. The voters that allowed our state to enter its current free-fall have to right the course now, through public resistance, and in 2014, by marching to the ballot box with clear eyes.

Beyond the Euphemisms Sophomore business and journalism major from Gaithersburg, Md. Email:

newest victim shifting your eyes from the stage to the crowd says it all. It isnt about the type of music or the mainstream popularity of the band it's about that indescribable aura of feeling connected to thousands of strangers belting the same lyrics with you. Its about experiencing your favorite music in its most tangible form and feeling nothing but complete, utter happiness. Happiness is a tween girl sobbing because Kendall from Big Time Rush said she smelled like roses. Its a group

of die-hard Skynyrd fans revving their Harleys in the parking lot with satisfied smiles, like they just arrived home after years of being away. Happiness is a squealing 10-year-old and her mother in matching mermaid costumes getting pulled onstage with Train. Its a married couple driving across state lines for the same Dave Matthews Band concert that ignited their love three years before. Music couldnt care less about who you are, where youre from, or where youre headed its your least judgmental and most loyal friend. So why does it matter how underground a band is or who discovered Ho Hey before The Lumineers made it big? Ditch the mainstream, the hipsters and naysayers and go back to the basics the nature of musics allure depends on the individual. And in the end, if all music is created equal on the basis of happiness, whos to judge what makes you happy?

Pretty boy bomber
Rolling Stone drew severe criticism with its decision to run a charmingly unkempt photo of Boston bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev on its latest cover. Its touchy, I know, but isnt it a bit petty to insist we only run unflattering photos of killers? Delving into his psyche is infinitely more worthwhile than doing Kanyes again, anyway.

Boxill debacle
Emails coming to light over the weekend reveal faculty chairwoman Jan Boxill redacted the 2012 report on academic fraud explicitly to avoid NCAA repercussions. We should be over this by now, but no, theres always more. Boxill, really? Did integrity just not occur to you? You literally wrote the book on sports ethics.

Roll over for rights

North Carolina took a brave step forward in the humane fight for canine rights last week with a bill allowing police to break into locked cars to free pets left in the heat. This is huge for animal welfare and basic moral values, but its a little concerning when lawmakers show more empathy for furry quadrupeds than poor people.

Brits bust smut

The UKs David Cameron unveiled a wide range of puritanical new policies Monday aimed at censoring online porn. If England is our mother country, does that we mean we should be embarrassed when she talks about sex? Maybe were estranged enough by this point to laugh instead of feel humiliated by association.
