Carrboro’s El Centro Hispano needs to relocate
By McKenzie Coey and Jenny Surane

El Centro Hispano needs a new Carrboro location — and it is quickly running out of time to find one. The agency, which offers services aimed at Hispanic people in Durham, Carrboro and Chapel Hill, opened its Carrboro location in 2010. It came to Carrboro looking to expand its services, but now it needs to downsize. “Even though they gave us a good deal per square foot, we are paying too much rent,” said Pilar Rocha-Goldberg, president and CEO of the agency. El Centro’s Carrboro lease is up at the end of the month, and while administrators want to stay somewhere nearby, Rocha-Goldberg said they still haven’t found a place to go. “We need to have at least two classrooms

and the childcare space for the preschool and space for the support services offices,” she said. Rocha-Goldberg estimated the new location will need to be about 2,000 square feet. She said a major concern with the future location is its ability to offer a workers’ center, or a place where local day laborers can safely stand while they wait for a foreman to pick them up for a day’s work. “It’s a good opportunity to open the workers’ center,” Rocha-Goldberg said. “Where we are at, they don’t allow us to do that. It’s a good opportunity to serve more community members and work with them.” Rocha-Goldberg said the agency is planning on relocating to a space with parking for the community and access to a bus route. Administrators are hoping to decide on a new Carrboro location next week, she said. Devin Ross, an organizer at the Orange County nonprofit Justice United, said he has

heard many complaints from the Carrboro community about the day laborers standing at a site known as “the corner” — the intersection of Davie and Jones Ferry roads where workers wait for offers of day labor. “They fulfill a really important role in our workforce — but they are a really vulnerable population,” he said. Ross said many of the workers face wage theft at the end of the day because the process of day laboring leaves the employers with little accountability and they can end up paying the workers less than they originally arranged. But Ross said collaborating with El Centro Hispano has allowed the two organizations to help bring about systematic change, including finding the new location for the agency. Even on days when it rains and days when

Minutes and seconds can mean everything when an emergency vehicle is dispatched — and Orange County Emergency Services is making that time count. Last year, the Board of County Commissioners approved a study to look at improving EMS and 911 response times, said Jim Groves, the county director of Emergency Services. Earlier this month, the department released a report stating the county has seen improved 911 dispatch times and EMS response times after implementing new strategies in response to red flags raised in the report last year. The average 911 dispatch time dropped from 2 minutes and 42 seconds in 2011 to 1 minute and 25 seconds in 2013. Average EMS response times have also decreased — from 10 minutes and 46 seconds to 9 minutes and 45 seconds. The data collected showed the county’s response times were longer than the national average for similar communities, Groves said. “If you look, national best practices says that certain types of communities should have certain response times,” he said. “Orange County was above that number. That was the real driving force behind the new strategies.” In October 2012, the commissioners received a report of short- and long-term plans for improvement of response and dispatch times, as well as 19 recommendations for methods, Groves said. Then a group of emergency responders, officials and citizens gave their nod of approval for the recommendations they found promising. According to Emergency Services’ latest report, these new strategies have been successful in cutting down response times. “Seconds can mean the difference

The university’s Clery report failed to report 127 campus crimes.

Margolis Healy).” The retainer agreement will last until July, Goodson said. She and Steven Healy, managing partner at Margolis Healy, conducted a campuswide training for all university employees in August, Goodson said. The firm Margolis Healy will conduct further in-depth trainings for university officials as a part of its retainer agreement. Former ECSU police chief Sam Beamon and former Chancellor Willie Gilchrist announced their resignations in May as the State Bureau of Investigation announced its inquiry into potential witness tampering and obstruction of justice on campus. Beamon stepped down immediately, and Gilchrist served until June 30. In May, The Virginian-Pilot reported that multiple sexual assaults reported to ECSU police from before 2008-11 were omitted in the university’s annual Clery Act crime reports. Since May, Elizabeth City police have been looking into the 127 cases that were not investigated by the campus police. They finished looking into 113 investigations, including 12 cases of either sexual assault, sexual battery, rape or peeping. Out of the 12, only two cases — both involving sexual battery — led to arrests. In April, the Department of Education fined Yale University $155,000 for failing to comply with the Clery Act, which included four fines of $27,500 for failure to report a sexual assault in its crime statistics. There are currently three pending federal investigations into UNCCH’s handling of sexual assault cases — including one on Clery Act compliance that began in April.

A report published earlier this month concluded that Elizabeth City State University “was substantially out of compliance” with federal regulations for campus security in May 2013, when city law enforcement discovered a total of 127 reports of crime uninvestigated by campus police. The Clery Act, required by the federal government, provides standard policies for colleges and universities to report crime statistics and develop emergency procedures. Failure to comply with the Clery Act affects an institution’s ability to receive federal student aid funds. ECSU hired the campus safety consulting firm Margolis Healy and Associates, whose clients include the UNC system, to conduct an internal assessment of its Clery Act compliance in May. The final report included 62 recommendations, including updates to ECSU’s crime reporting procedures and mandatory Clery Act compliance trainings. According to a memorandum from Alyn Goodson, ECSU’s interim Clery coordinator, the university took pre-recommendation action on all but five recommendations in anticipation of the report’s findings. ECSU outlines future actions on the remaining five recommendations in the memorandum. “The relevance of the report is to implement those recommendations at ECSU,” Goodson said in an email. “This will be accomplished through an existing retainer agreement (with

On the celebration of the 150th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation, the Carrboro ArtsCenter’s production of “The Whipping Man” presents a refreshed look at the new responsibilities of three newly freed men at the end of the Civil War. “The Whipping Man,” a play written by Matthew Lopez, features a Confederate soldier and two slaves who are waiting for their families after the end of the war. The three men, all Jewish, reveal deep individual histories that reach a shocking height as they celebrate Passover. “There’s a lot of twists and turns, there’s a lot of revelations that come out among the three men,” said Jeri Lynn Schulke, the show’s producer. The historic freedom celebrated with Passover provides an important parallel with the newfound freedom the men have received. “Even though the (show’s) poster is a Confederate flag with Jewish stars on it, it’s not about the

Foushee seat to be filled
Democratic Party officials will nominate a replacement today.
By Kate Grise
Staff Writer

Committee members from the Orange and Durham County Democratic parties will meet today to appoint a replacement for the District 50 House seat recently vacated by now-Sen. Valerie Foushee. Four committee members, two from each county, will vote after hearing final speeches from the six candidates at the Orange County Public Library in Hillsborough at 7 p.m. The candidates are Drew Nelson, a lawyer; Graig Meyer, a school administrator; Laurin Easthom, Chapel Hill town councilwoman; Danielle Adams, Durham County Soil and Water Conservation district supervisor; Travis Phelps, a paint company color consultant; Tommy McNeill, owner of a medical supply company and Orange County Commissioner Bernadette Pelissier. Orange County has two-thirds of the votes and Durham County has one-third of the votes due to county population, said Ted Benson, the non-voting chairman of the committee. The committee is looking for a strong voice to represent the district in the General Assembly, said Matt Hughes, Orange County Democratic Party chairman. Candidates all answered a questionnaire. “To sustain our economy, we need an educational system that adequately prepares people for both skilled and professional sector jobs,” Meyer wrote. Easthom wrote that she has served people from all walks of life. “I feel one of my greatest strengths is the ability to connect with so many different groups socially and professionally,” she said. Candidates also said how they will promote economic development while protecting watersheds. “It is important for the district to continue to strike a balance between rural economic development and conscientious natural resource conservation and preservation,” Adams wrote. McNeill wrote that he is a 20-year military veteran. “This experience has taught me the value of compromise, patience, hard work, service and commitment,” he wrote. Pelissier said maintaining fairness is one of the important issues facing the district. “Honesty, transparency and fairness to all individuals and localities is central to our state’s reputation as a decent place to live,” she wrote. The questionnaire also asked candidates about their plans for securing bipartisan support and working with the Republican-controlled legislature. “The key is not to (waiver) on your principles, but to have compromise on both sides,” Phelps said. Nelson, Adams and Meyer all said in interviews that their first steps as representative would be to meet constituents and begin a campaign for election. Gov. Pat McCrory must confirm the appointment. “The committee has a hard task ahead of it, and a slate of well-qualified candidates,” Nelson said.

Carrboro shop serves co≠ee alongside vinyl records
By Caleb Waters
Staff Writer

A new coffee shop in Carrboro is bringing it back old school — combining oldfashioned coffee and vinyl music. Vinyl Perk, which opened on Saturday at 709 W. Rosemary St., is different from a typical coffee store because of the pair of products it offers. “What we pride ourselves on is vinyl music for the people, and pour-over coffee for the people,” said Jay Reeves, the owner and manager of the store. “Our mission is to keep those two wonderful things alive, right here on Rosemary Street.” The pour-over method of coffee brewing is an older style, but the best, according to Reeves. He said the method is simple and involves pouring hot water over freshly ground coffee beans. “Pour-over coffee is a very simple and elegant way to make coffee — it’s the best way to make coffee,” Reeves said. Reeves said he sees a similarity between pour-over coffee and vinyl records.

“They have both been around a long time, they are both black, they are both enjoyed slowly,” he said. “It takes time to take a record out of its sleeve, it takes time to put it on the platter. It takes a little bit of time to brew a nice cup of coffee and really, it should take time to enjoy it.” Reeves also said he was excited about being close to campus. “I think people at UNC are going to be a huge audience,” he said. Matthew Conner, an employee at Vinyl Perk, said vinyl records are the best in the music industry. “I think it’s worth noting that vinyl sales are the only area of the music industry that has increased in the last three years,” Conner said. “Everything else is on the decline.” Scott Conary, co-owner of Open Eye Cafe — another local coffee shop in downtown Carrboro — said he is not worried about the pressures of competition Vinyl Perk could put on his business. “The idea of competition, I don’t really subscribe to that. I feel like the more offer-

ings there are, the better it is for everybody,” Conary said. “Everybody sort of finds their own place and what they are looking for, which can change from minute to minute, day to day.” He said he sees Vinyl Perk as another reason to come to Carrboro, rather than more competition. Kieran Preissler, a Chapel Hill native, has already visited the store numerous times since its opening. Preissler said he appreciates the environment Reeves offers. “It’s very relaxed,” he said. “He always plays the coolest music. It’s a nice place to just hang out. The people that come in here are always friendly.” Conary said people will be able to appreciate the specificity of Vinyl Perk. “(Reeves) is not doing a lot of anything,” he said. “He is doing a couple of very specific things with the intention to do it well. And that is huge. I really think people are appreciating that more and more.”

At the second meeting of the academic year for the Provost’s Committee on LGBTQ Life Wednesday, UNC faculty and students discussed ways to actively assert the committee’s presence in the UNC community — including extending funding to bring a prominent human rights activist to speak on campus. Created to councel the provost on LGBTrealted issues on UNC’s campus, the committee provides funding to groups producing projects that deal with sexuality and gender identity. The committee’s budget is $11,500 and in a unanimous vote Wednesday, attending members decided to allocate $1,000 to bring Masha Gessen, a Russian LGBT activist and New York Times contributor, to campus in November. Christopher Putney, chairman of the Provost’s Committee, said he is excited about hosting a renowned LGBT activist at UNC. “I was watching CNN one evening, and there was Masha Gessen, and she was making

a very forceful case for boycotting the Sochi Olympics in February,” he said. “I thought she’d be a great speaker to come to UNC.” Gessen will speak about the Russian focus on family values when she visits campus Nov. 7. The committee also voted to provide $1,000 in funding for a February event focused on the experiences of AfricanAmerican lesbians in the south. The event, held by UNC’s Process Series, will feature African-American studies scholar E. Patrick Johnson. Joseph Megel,Process Series artistic director and a member of the committee, said the performances will be important for examining questions of sexuality and gender identity. “The performances will investigate (gender issues) in a way that scholars don’t,” Megel said. The committee considered giving funds to the Triangle Dance Festival for AIDS, but members want more information before making a decision. Putney said administrative leadership would benefit LGBT activism on campus. The committee is organizing a meeting with Provost Jim Dean and Chancellor Carol Folt for the spring to find ways to impress its mission upon the University.

Students break fast with the Muslim Students Association
The MSA held its Fast-a-thon as a part of Islam Awareness Month.
By Carolyn Ebeling
Staff Writer

After abstaining from food and drink all day, more than 50 people dug into a Mediterranean feast in the Great Hall of the Student Union Wednesday. UNC’s Muslim Students Association hosted its annual Fasta-thon , the biggest event of Islam Awareness Month, to raise money for a Syrian relief fund. Though Muslims typically fast throughout the month of Ramadan, which was in July this year, the participating students chose to experience just a small part of this Muslim tradition. Tickets were $10 at the door and $7 at the Union Box Office. Brother Aatif Abdul Qadeer, the

founder and president of various Muslim organizations and the youth director of the Islamic Center of Morrisville, spoke to participants before they began the meal about how fasting brings Muslims closer to God. Qadeer said the fast reminds people to be grateful. “We are forced to think about all that we have,” he said. “All other times of the year, whenever we are hungry and thirsty, we can have whatever we want whenever we want, and that is truly a blessing.” Qadeer said the experience inspires compassion for people like those in Syria who are experiencing violence and insecurity. “Let us really ask for God to help those people who are living in a state of hunger or fear,” he said. Sophomore Sarah Ahmed, the publicity chairwoman of MSA, said all the food was donated by local sponsors like Mediterranean Deli and McAlister’s Deli so that MSA could give the most money possible

to the relief fund. The organization used its own money for the speaker, decorations and other expenses. Ahmed said the event is extremely important both to her and the association. “The whole point of this event is to get people to understand the religion more because there are a lot of misconceptions and a lot of people don’t understand the real religion,” she said. Ahmed said though fasting is a part of many religions, it is particularly significant in Islam. “There is a particular part of the Quran that says that fasting has been prescribed to you,” she said. “There is an awareness that God is watching you 24/7.” Sophomore Michaela Meredith said she learned more about the Middle East and Islam at the event. “I’m going because it’s a great cultural event that also supports an important cause,” she said. Ahmed said the event allows students to become more globally

aware. “We are in such a global environment these days, and you can’t just be in your own little bubble,” she said. Sophomore Katelyn Robertson said she was surprised by the extent

of the violence in Syria that she learned about at the event. “I didn’t know anything about that before I came,” she said.

Tar Heel field hockey blanks Longwood
Staff Writer

By Ben Coley
With games against two top10 opponents this weekend, the No. 2 North Carolina field hockey team showed no signs of looking ahead in its last regular season home game. Instead, its focus was all on Longwood — which quickly became clear in UNC’s 9-0 rout of the Lancers. To begin the game, the Tar Heels were sluggish on offense, but UNC eventually found its momentum right before halftime, and they scored three goals in less than 10 minutes. Two of the first-half goals were from sophomore Nina Notman, who found the back of the cage on a penalty corner and was unassisted on her second goal. The other goal

came from junior Samantha Travers, which was also off a penalty corner. Redshirt freshman Caroline Plyler capped off the offensive onslaught with her first career goal. “It was just really exciting to know that I had all the support of my teammates on the bench,” Plyler said. “It was nice that it was a (penalty) stroke, so it was not that hard.” Notman said getting the first goal of the game helped UNC establish a rhythm that continued to the end of the game. “When you shoot the first goal, you get rolling,” Notman said. “The team gets more confident and braver to try things out more.” In the second half, the Tar Heels came out aggres“I work really close with them,” Lenis said. “The idea is to provide a safe place for them to stand and also connect them with other businesses.” Lenis is the community organizer and specialist for El Centro, and she’s served as the main point of contact between the agency and the day laborers. She said she has been asking workers what they would like to see at the new location. She said she hopes the ies across the U.S. and has received critical acclaim and praise. Schulke hoped that by producing this show — in addition to two other shows that revolve around post-Civil War themes later in the season — that the local community will build new perspectives. “I think theater is really important in helping us see different perspectives and different experiences,” Schulke said. Actor Phillip B. Smith, who plays Simon, one of the slaves, said the three characters in the play also undergo tremendous emotional growth that the audience will find relatable. “It’s an emotional roller coaster because (Simon) is thrilled to see he is not a slave,

sively on the offensive end. Sophomore Casey Di Nardo opened up the half with two goals in the first 12 minutes. Di Nardo has now scored seven goals in her last three games. She noted that production has come from a more assertive mindset. “We’ve been working in practice on being scrappier and diving for balls,” Di Nardo said. “I’ve just been trying to put everything in the back of the net that I can get a touch on.” Coach Karen Shelton said Longwood presented challenges early, but the Tar Heels were able to respond. “I was pleased with the number of goals we scored,” Shelton said. “Longwood gave us a really solid 15 minutes and made it tough for us new site will include enough space to continue the agency’s programs, like language and computer classes. Rocha-Goldberg said the agency is trying to connect with more students and volunteers to help rearrange the building. “The idea really is to have a center where people can come and have different activities.” but at the same time he is challenged with the new possibilities of being free, while struggling with his loyalty to his old master,” Smith said. Rivera also said it was a challenge to perform such an emotional piece. “The material itself is a heart-wrenching, beautiful challenge,” he said. “It’s a great and humbling experience, and I’m very fortunate. (The crew) are all very, very wonderful.” So far, The ArtsCenter has heard overwhelming responses from audience members. “It will make you laugh, it will make you cry,” Rivera said. “It makes me do that every night, and I strongly recommend — people need to see this.”

and I think we were able to make some adjustments and once we got that first goal, it opened up things for us.” The Tar Heels stifled Longwood on defense for the entire game. The Lancers were only able to muster five shots on goal and only three penalty corners. The majority of the second half was spent on the Tar Heels’ side of the field. “We’re looking forward to tomorrow, but it’s been a rough week for us coming off a weekend game to then a mid-week game,” Shelton said. “It’s a little bit out of our routine. But I think it was a good game for our last home game of the year.”

about the relationships that these three men have and how they are such individuals.” The show also focuses on the meaning of family. “Certainly all these guys are searching for home and freedom, and what that means,” Schulke said. “They’re trying to put their home back together, not just the physical home, but family itself. There’s a fair amount of discussion about what family is, and how we retain that, and how even though we are not related, we can still be a family.” The show has been performed in numerous cit-

Some Carrboro businesses got a brief glimpse at how the town’s economy works by circulating $200 worth of marked $2 bills over the weekend. The bills were part of an experiment by the North Carolina Bicycle Summit to track where and how bicyclists spent their money locally. The summit, held Friday, Saturday and Sunday in downtown Carrboro, aimed to promote bicycling across the state and the economic advantages it brings to local markets, said Heidi Perry, the event’s organizer and the treasurer of the Carrboro Bicycle Coalition. The $2 bills were stamped with an image of a red bicycle in order to track their circulation throughout businesses in town. Perry said the circulation gave people a better idea

of how cycling boosts the economy. “The idea was that $2 bills stand out, which is why we chose them,” she said. “We wanted to encourage those attending to spend their dollars locally.” Biker and UNC senior Danny Allen said he attended the summit on behalf of the Tar Heel Bikes student organization. “I wanted to learn about bicycle advocacy throughout the state. I was interested from that perspective,” he said. He said while he did not receive a $2 bill, he noticed most of the attendees used theirs at local restaurants. “It symbolized easily how biking can affect local businesses. Bicyclists don’t travel as fast as isolated people who drive cars,” Allen said. “They aren’t separated from the environment, but are immersed into it. That’s what the bills demonstrated.”

Allen said he thinks bicyclists offer practicality to local economies. “Bicyclists spend less on fuel for one,” he said. “Their money can be used instead on food, the local bar or service or other local places.” Chyenna Jessee, the owner and operator of Jessee’s Coffee & Bar, said the $2 bills had an enormous presence at her business Friday, though at first she didn’t know where the bills were coming from. “We don’t see that many bikers come in besides the locals usually,” she said. “It was good to see so many of them.” Wendy Smith, operator of Cameron’s gift shop, also said several bills were spent at the shop, which moved from its former location in University Mall to Carrboro’s 300 East Main development last week. Michael Richards, the manager of Carrburritos restaurant on Rosemary Street, said many of the bills have passed through the store’s cash registers since the event. “It was a good indicator of how money is spent locally,” he said. “And it wasn’t spent at Wall Street. The local economy can sustain itself.”

between life and death,” Groves said. “Any time we can cut down even just seconds we have much more of an opportunity to have an impact on someone’s life.” One of the ways they have reached these reduced times is by having EMS work with the county’s fire departments. Ambulances now wait at the fire departments so when a call comes in, they are more likely to be closer to the location. Matt Lawrence, the deputy fire chief in Chapel Hill, said he thinks the new strategies were much needed. “From the data that was collected, we could see that there were some places in Orange County that were taking 18 minutes to get on scene,” Lawrence said. “From a patient care perspective, when there are people who need urgent care, response times have to be as fast as possible.” By co-locating with the fire department, Groves said the county is saving money by not having to build new structures to house the vehicles and staff needed to respond to emergency calls — costs that would be close to $1 million per structure, he said. Automatic Vehicle Location devices are also being employed, according to the report. When a call comes in, a computer can determine which ambulance is closest to the call and dispatch it immediately. Groves says EMS administrators are pleased with the improvements from 2011 — but some of the most significant plans have been implemented this year. He said he hopes over the next nine to 12 months, the county will see even larger drops.

After graduation, what’s next for the men of Mipso?
By Kristina Kokkonos
Staff Writer

When Joseph Terrell, Jacob Sharp and Wood Robinson joined together their sophomore year at UNC to play their first show at Local 506, they never expected that their experience making music would turn into what it is today. Mipso, formerly Mipso Trio, has taken some big steps since the graduation of its members in May. From touring in Japan to releasing its second fulllength album this week, Mipso continues to be a model of success for aspiring student bands in Chapel Hill and Carrboro — where the band currently lives. “We’ve had so much fun every step of the way, and there’s been so many times where if it had been the end, we would have been super happy,” said Terrell, lead vocalist and guitarist from High Point. “It’s only icing on the cake that we’re still having fun and doing it at an even bigger level now.” Performing full time was not Mipso’s expectation after graduation. But now, after finishing a summerlong tour of the U.S. and Asia, music is definitely the fellows’ main focus. Mipso played 40 shows around the Southeast in June and July and played 23 days in Japan and China in August, including the 42nd annual Takarazuka Bluegrass Festival. In the wake of its second full-length album, Dark Holler Pop, Mipso is busier than ever planning its release and tour to follow, which includes shows every week throughout the U.S. until December. “It’s one way of describing our particular combination of Appalachian influences and a pop sensibility — with a wink,” said Terrell, referring to the album’s title. The phrase was coined by the album’s producer, Andrew Marlin, who is half of the Carrboro duo Mandolin Orange. Marlin, who considers Mipso’s approaching him to produce their album a “nice honor,” attributes the differences between Dark Holler Pop and the band’s previous releases, such as 2012’s Long, Long Gone, to the extra time spent arranging and tracking in the studio. “I think Long, Long Gone shows off what they’re able to do as a trio, but with this album it also shows what they can do with the support of some of their friends and more collaboration,” Marlin said. Features on the album include members of prominent local acts such as Mandolin Orange, Chatham County Line and Town Mountain. The band’s closest

collaborator is fiddle player Libby Rodenbough, a senior cultural studies major at UNC. She performs with them when she can, and offers what the members call a “dynamic presence” onstage. Rodenbough said performing with Mipso provided her with the confidence to play in front of a crowd. She has played with the band since it formed, but has been more involved than ever with the production of the new album. “I think they have all gotten tighter musically,” said Rodenbough, describing how the band itself has grown since its start. “I also think they take the band more seriously now.” Although at times they miss being at UNC, Terrell, Sharp and Robinson said the transition into postgrad life was relatively easy. “We’re doing full time what we’ve been doing part time for two and a half years, in relatively

the same place with the same large support network,” said Sharp, the band’s mandolin player from Morganton. “We have a lot of cards that are being played in our favor and we’re definitely conscious of that.” “The center of our lives has moved about a mile and a half west,” Terrell said. As for the future of Mipso, the band is taking it day by day. “We’re a totally ambitious band and part of that means playing your music to new people and different places,” Sharp said. “My goal for us right now is to keep feeling really good about the music that we make and the places that we’re making it — to tackle some big rivers,” Terrell added.

Q&A with Philadelphia band Man Man
Man Man is an experimental band from Philadelphia incorporating unique sounds and lively performance acts on stage. Staff writer Marcela Guimaraes talked to frontman Ryan Kattner (Honus Honus) about the band’s new album On Oni Pond, his craziest moment on tour and how he felt about being featured on Anderson Cooper’s RidicuList. originally from Philly, how did you guys know each other and form the band? to summer camp together. We all had silly nicknames and that’s how we first met. Actually, I wasn’t a very strong swimmer when I was younger and I almost drowned at Lake Canohagan, and fortunately Chris was there, but he wasn’t a very strong swimmer either so he went in to get me, and he also almost drowned in Lake Canohagan. Fortunately there was a camp counselor, camp counselor Eddy, and he pulled us out. And because of that Chris named his dog Camp Counselor Eddy. for something a little bit different than previous albums with On Oni Pond?

or anything. I looked pretty badass for the week and after that week I looked like I had eyeshadow in one eye so then I just looked confused.

Cadbury cream eggs.

DIVE: Were you guys going

DIVE: Have you had any crazy moments on tour so far? HH: Yeah, I got a black eye in San Diego when someone overzealously tried to hug me and they accidentally headbutted me in the face prior to the first song on our set. So then I got to experience the sensation of playing an entire set, and some additional songs after the set, with my eye swollen shut. That was fun. It was cool, I wasn’t mad

DIVE: So I have to ask about the Wolf Blitzer tunic. Anderson Cooper said he wanted to steal it, how did you react to that? HH: First off, I’d like to go on the record in Tar Heel nation and say that I think Anderson Cooper is a wonderful man. He is a glorious man, he is a handsome man, he is a beautiful man. Second, he made guarding that tunic very difficult. And thirdly, Anderson Cooper is a gift to mankind. And so is Wolf Blitzer. DIVE: Did Wolf Blitzer say anything to you about that? HH: Did you see? He took

DIVERSIONS: You guys are

HONUS HONUS: We all went

HH: We’ve been trying to do something different every album, and I think it’s the first time people have noticed. It’s really nice. I feel like we’re the ugly duckling that grew up to be an ugly duck. And people just noticed, finally. Because we laid golden eggs, golden

The crew is trying to survive the hijacking. The pirates are trying to survive the impoverished conditions they were born into. Barkhad Abdi plays Muse, the unspoken leader of the pirates, with a strong sense of heart and depth. He is clearly in over his head. Hints of humanity throughout the film keep the pirates from slipping into brutal-villain territory. There’s a sense of respect between Phillips and Muse that makes their scenes together the strongest of the film. Hanks does some of his best work in years as the titu-

The fluid camera work and tight close-ups make much of the film feel like a documentary. The film allows little time to pause for a breath. It’s nonstop action and stress until suddenly it’s not. “Captain Phillips” is riveting until the very end. Smart directing and sharp performances give this biopic the emotional impact that it needs to fully deliver. And deliver it does. — Schyler Martin

Arcade Fire: band behind the curtain
here is a light rain drizzling over New York City, and somewhere in Brooklyn, Arcade Fire is playing, but they don’t want you to know about it. The details of the show remain a mystery, but block by block fans of the biggest underground band ever to win a Grammy are lined up single file in costumes and custom clothing. Why the abnormal attire? Because a poster told them they may be able to see The Reflektors. The Reflektors is Arcade Fire’s alter ego, the name the band has recently donned while playing shows under the radar in preparation for the release of its highly anticipated album Reflektor out Tuesday on Merge Records. The pandemonium in New York City started with a poster about a week ago discovered by somebody simply saying “The Reflektors, Brooklyn” with two dates of “10/18” and “10/19” and faceless caricatures of the group. The clearest thing about the poster was the bottom line, stating: “Formal attire or costume mandatory.” With a convenient visit already planned to see my brother who lives in Brooklyn, I, along with thousands of others, took the bait and started the hunt for how and where this was happening. After a frustrating and unsuccessful endeavor with the mismanaged online ticket process, it looked as though

my brother and I would not experience the return of Arcade Fire. Nevertheless, we decided to check out the scene on the second night of the secret shows and see what may happen. Masquerade masks and skinny ties glittered the eager line as we approached the neon entrance to the mysterious venue. We came across a sly scalper, who struck up a side conversation with us about some tickets instead of advertising them to the whole crowd. We asked few questions, purchased them and within a flash hopped in a line where we were ushered inside. Packed tighter than sardines, we waited and waited … and waited, gazing readily at a black curtain projecting a rotating “The Reflektors” as Afro-pop and ’80s new wave music appeased the sweaty crowd. Then, the crowd stood on their toes as a masked James Murphy of LCD Soundsystem poked his head out to introduce Brooklyn to The Reflektors. The ambiance exploded as the black curtain was yanked apart, revealing a radiant set with alt rock’s

favorite band ready to blast. This is a group that sold out Madison Square Garden and won a Grammy for Best Album in 2011 with its third LP The Suburbs. But then it disappears for three years and returns in a mild fashion with two secret shows under a pseudonym in the middle of Brooklyn? Demanding its fans make themselves look ridiculous for a venue that holds barely 3,000 and then organizing a dance party with the crowd? That’s not how stardom works. Arcade Fire is breaking down the pedestal its fans have put it on. The band has been to the top and seen the view, and wishes to remain grounded with everybody else. Arcade Fire, and The Reflektors, is a band that is about dancing with the crowd in silly costumes, not watching from a distance while it counts its money. The lesson Arcade Fire offers is to let what you make be a quality product, but don’t let yourself get in the way of it. Don’t make yourself the focal point of the music or anything else you create. Call yourself something else if that’s what it takes. And appreciate what other people do for what it is, not because of the context behind who they are. Don’t let the curtain fool you, behind it stands someone who just wants to be a normal person.

Captain Phillips
“Captain Phillips” is a fast-paced, high-tension thriller made unforgettable by incredible performances from Tom Hanks and newcomer Barkhad Abdi. The film begins by introducing Capt. Richard Phillips as an average guy. He could be anyone. These scenes might be important for a proper emotional investment later, but they’re undeniably cheesy. Luckily, the introduction doesn’t last long. As soon as “Captain Phillips” hits the ocean, it picks up and never slows back down. When armed Somali pirates board Phillips’ American container ship, the captain is forced to come face to face with the invaders. Emotionally, “Captain Phillips” is exhausting. Viewers are asked to sympathize with both Phillips and his crew and, at times, with the pirates who threaten them. By not allowing the pirates to become stereotypes, director Paul Greengrass makes a strong statement. These are all men, just

Postpone travel and shipping, though. You’re gaining authority. Listen to someone experienced. Implement their directions and add your own spice. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) Today is a 7 -- Review your priorities. Design power into the project. Bring comfortable clothing. Meetings conflict with family time. Ignore detractors. Unexpected news affects your plans. It’s getting easier to stick to your budget. Play those hidden aces. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Today is an 8 -- Friends are very helpful.

Career matters emerge for your consideration, as well. Mull it all over. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Today is a 9 -- You may need your spare change for gas money. Do without treats for now. Don’t spend what you don’t have. They are good for travel, so take a backpack and go. Enjoy your reward. Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Today is an 8 -- Count dollars and pay bills. Manage your resources carefully. Remember your partner. Be careful during this exercise. Focus on your work and productivity. Teach and study from your friends. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Today is a 9 -- Make long-range plans together. Don’t be afraid if you don’t know how. You’ll figure it out. Don’t mash them into place or assume you know everything. Negotiate to refine. You warm to the game. Test theories. Listen graciously. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Today is a 9 -- Get to work. Party conditions are excellent, so get ready. Gather supplies and information. Work matters bubble on the front burner, too. Juggling obligations with fun takes energy, and you can do it. Get your team involved. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) Today is an 8 -- Feelings boil over, and the past creeps into the present. Choose family and home. Ask for what was promised.

Q&A with You Won’t

Mipso Dark Holler Pop Bluegrass

Courtesy of You won’t You Won’t stops in Durham this weekend, performing on Saturday at Casbah with The Tender Fruit.

You Won’t is a Bostonbased multi-instrument duo whose songs are as fun and quirky as they are sincere. Staff writer Marcela Guimaraes talked to Josh Arnoudse about the band’s upcoming material and the culture shock of being in the South. develop your current sound?

and they have like a big local crowd, so that was actually one of our favorites.

DIVE: So you’re excited to be back? JA: Yeah, definitely. We haven’t been back since last August and it’s certainly somewhere we want to make part of our regular circuit. I don’t know, I have like a certain fondness for college towns I guess and I just always liked the vibe down there. The people are nice. We’re from Massachusetts and as you know people aren’t the warmest up here so it’s kind of like novelty to go to places like Chapel Hill and people are like “Hi how are you?” and I’m just like “I’m okay?... How are you...? Why are you asking? You don’t even know me.”
in New England they’re considered crazy. I was at the post office and all these old ladies walked by and I just wanted to say “Hello! How are you?” but it’s just these old ladies and they just don’t give a shit cause they’re from Massachusetts and no one does that.

the previous one?

DIVERSIONS: How did you

JOSH ARNOUDSE: Well it was almost out of necessity because there’s only two of us, and we briefly had another friend playing bass with us, but for the most part it was only the two of us. So we decided to be really inventive about how much sound we can make with just two people. That means Raky (Sastri) ends up playing fifteen different things at once and sometimes I play two things at once. I have the easier end of the deal in that sense. But yeah, we just kind of had to spend a lot of time trying stuff out and seeing what worked and it’s taken really all of the last two and a half years and it’s still a process to figure out how we can be most efficient and most effective with just two people.
album going to differ from

JA: I think the biggest difference is that we’ve been playing shows now for two years, whereas the first record we made without any sort of consideration of a live show. But this one is very much shaped by what our shows were like, what we feel worked the best, what was the most fun we had while playing live, and what people responded to the most.
ite place you’ve been on tour?

DIVE: Do you have a favor-

DIVE: How is your next

JA: We played a show with Bombadil at the Cat’s Cradle a little more than a year ago. But I really loved that place. It was one of the warmest audiences we’ve ever had, it was a really awesome night, one of the most enjoyable experiences for sure. We’d come through a few times before and play at the Cave two or three times to like absolutely nobody so it was nice to come down there

DIVE: If anyone does that

JA:I was just thinking that.

Mipso needs little introduction in the Chapel Hill area, as does the group’s sophomore album Dark Holler Pop. It’s a Mipso we are familiar with, the Mipso that swoons in harmonies and sways with sensible folk narratives. It is the young, spritely bluegrass group Carolina fell in love with in its debut Long, Long Gone, and while few new doors are opened on Dark Holler Pop, it is an easy and warming listen. The album is a testament that proves the music fans want to hear and the music Mipso wants to make are one and the same. And there is little wrong with that. We want to hear Jacob Sharp and Joseph Terrell trading off lines about love’s regrets in “Tried Too Hard" or go on a ride of optimistic uncertainty with Terrell in the story of “Louise.” If this is the formula Mipso wishes to use in defining its light and reflective bluegrass, then there will be little resistance in its way — but with that, little room is left for experimentation. Nevertheless, to claim Mipso has not added new ingredients to the mix would be unfair and untrue. The obvious change is the drop of the band’s “trio,” but also to Dark Holler Pop comes some professional help from local aficionados like Phil Cook of Megafaun and production from Mandolin Orange’s Andrew Marlin. However, these new sounds should be sharp attention-grabbers instead of simple complements to a bluegrass sound that has the capacity for more nuance. But how far does Mipso

wish to stray from its majestic past? The standout “Get Out” features Terrell longing for a place beyond reach, a sequel to Long, Long Gone’s hit “Lonely Town.” Similarly, “Border Tonight” hits a lighter note, but with the same rambling themes of unrest. However, following this comes the album’s single “Carolina Calling,” an obvious tribute to the band’s birthplace and its current home. These two dichotomies highlight bluegrass and folk’s trend of being rooted in narrative and storytelling, sometimes personal and other times fictional. So which side of Dark Holler Pop is Mipso narrating a fictional story and which is genuine? Is the band complacent where it is, or is there an undermining desire behind its music to go new places and reach new heights? It’s Mipso’s choice where it wishes to take its harmonies, but for now we can appreciate having the group back to scratch the bluegrass itch. — Charlie Shelton

rock groups. The instrumentation has moved away from the very prevalent acoustic guitar on Oh Tall Tree to a sound more rooted in electric guitar and synthesizers. But the band hasn’t completely deserted the style that has gotten it this far — tracks like “Small Time” still have that old Roman Candle feel with echoed lyrics, piano and subdued guitar. Debris is often fragmented and unrecognizable, making it an apt title for this album. Each track on Debris has its own sound, making the album lack a sense of continuity — but that’s not to say it’s a bad thing. From this fragmentation comes musical diversity, showing just how the band is exploring new genres. The title track, an instrumental session coupled with a spoken word dream, shows the band’s grasp of different musical stylings and “Fairfax 1040pm” finds the band experimenting with unique drum rhythms and synth patterns. Debris shows Roman Candle’s evolution as a band — inspired by the growth of rock in Nashville — while still maintaining some of its roots. This transition is executed well, making Debris Roman Candle’s best album yet. — Will Jackson

Roman Candle Debris Rock

Poor Fair good Excellent Classic

After a three-year break, former Chapel Hill band Roman Candle is back with its fourth full-length LP, Debris. This hiatus helped the band, as Debris seems more polished and diverse than its previous LP Oh Tall Tree In The Ear. While its first three records had strong folk roots, Debris draws more influence from rock, especially on “Not Strangers Anymore.” This progression to rock is a welcome change and seems inevitable as Nashville, the band’s new home, has become a hot spot for up-and-coming

More tricks, less treats

Breast cancer hurts people, not breasts
TO THE EDITOR: You can’t turn anywhere during October without seeing tiny pink ribbons. These pink ribbons didn’t mean much to me until my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer two years ago. After her diagnosis, she went through a double mastectomy. Ever since, I’ve noticed how organizations claiming to raise awareness are doing so in a way that only focuses on breasts, and by doing that, underhandedly focusing on their sexual allure. Groups print shirts and bracelets with phrases like “Save The Ta-tas,” or “I Heart Boobies.” These campaigns bring much-needed comic relief, but more than a dash of humor, they bring inherent sexism and objectification of women to the fight against this terrible disease. Buying a “Save The Ta-Tas” bumper sticker can come from the best intentions, but consider how much support that actually gives to the breast cancer survivor who had to chose between her “ta-tas” and her life. When you focus solely on saving a woman’s breasts, you ignore the woman behind them. And isn’t she the more important thing to save? Isn’t a woman’s worth in much more than just her breasts? Not according to these campaigns. There are so many better ways to support the fight against breast cancer than implying that the most important thing in this fight is to protect the physical body part. Education on the issue, emotional support for those affected and a commitment to a cure need to be the focus instead of the breasts themselves. Paige Maconochie ’16 Linguistics

round this time last year, I attended a holiday on Franklin Street known as “Halloween.” The holiday was not like the Halloween I’d known as a lad: While all my peers were indeed wearing costumes, they were not soliciting candy from suburban houses. Instead, they were running wild on Franklin Street, yelling profanities and being Publicly Drunk While Under 21. This nouveau Halloween celebration seemed fun for a while, but by the night’s end I’d witnessed enough blackouts, festive orange vomit and wrecked home decor to wonder whether college Halloween was really an “upgrade” from that of our childhoods. Instead of spending our Halloween getting candy (treats), we now spend it on assorted mischievous acts (tricks). Why do we stop trickor-treating as we get older, opting for tricks rather than treats? Like the pitchfork of Satan (Halloween’s patron saint), the query’s answer has three prongs. As we grow up, our trickor-treat budget line expands. A budget line, in economic terms, represents the combination of goods one can afford. Part-time jobs and allowances beginning in middle school expand our budget lines, allowing us to buy all the cheap candy that our stomachs, mass-marketed to by Mars, consider reasonable. At that point, two effects occur: one, we begin to value candy less, because we can afford it with relative ease; two, parents take less pity on our richer selves, so they lower older kids’ candy handouts. Here’s a second economic effect that makes us value tricks over treats as we age: preference shifts. Preferences, in economic terms, rank the order in which we prefer various goods to one another. As kids, our ultimate preference in life is clear: candy. What could be better to a child than candy? The answer is nothing. Yet as we transition to our tweens, teens and Seventeen magazine, our preferences shift. Instead of candy being our ultimate preference, influences like hormones and MTV cause us to value certain goods more than candy. Around this time, we may rather be rambunctious with peers, get intimate with a coed or drink fermented beverages than consume Reese’s Pieces. A third and final change occurs in college that summates the economic trifecta of fewer treats and more tricks. That change is decreased regulation. Regulation, in economic terms, refers to the amount of government interference in free individuals’ pursuit of self-interest. Arriving at UNC, we’re greeted with a wonderland of no parents, no curfews and fake IDs. In other words, the regulation of our choices goes to zilch. Unregulated college students do not trick-or-treat on Halloween; they’d rather get cray. And cray they get indeed. Should we feel nostalgic about our rejection of treats for tricks? No, we’re the product of economics, and I learned in Philosophy 101 that free will doesn’t exist. Dressed as Johnny Appleseed, I’ll see y’all on Franklin Street next Thursday.

Candy-coated incentives



Incentives for candy factory will pay off in time.

fter months of deliberation, Orange County finalized the incentives it will give a leading Japanese confectionery company, Morinaga America, which is opening its first U.S. factory in the county. While steep in cost, the incentives offered will bring substantial returns that will be felt throughout the county. Among the incentives added to the factory site that made Orange County a contender in its pursuit and ultimate landing of

the Morinaga factory were sewer and water lines valued at $575,000 and construction of an access road valued at $500,000. These additions, combined with a performance grant of up to $1.5 million over five years, helped to seal the deal and bring Hi-Chew to Orange County. The company hopes to start construction in March 2014, complete a basic shell of the factory by December 2014. And by the first half of 2015, the factory will begin to install machinery and hire and train its workforce, so as to be able to open in June or July of that year. Morinaga America

will bring about 100 jobs to Orange County. In addition to benefits from training and health insurance plans, a $3.4 million annual payroll will undoubtedly stimulate the economy both directly and indirectly. Morinaga will be the third-largest corporate taxpayer in the county, as well as significantly lessening a heavily burdened property tax base. If this company expands — and all indications are that it will — that will only increase tax base benefits and bring additional jobs to Orange County. Over time, Morinaga America will repay the incentives tenfold.

athlete. Is this what the public thinks about us? That the majority of us are here to shoot and run a ball? Besides trivialization, there are larger implications. In North Carolina, we have a history of putting up a cognitive barrier between ourselves and reality. There have been institutions in the past that have reaped enormous profits off the hard work of exploited individuals. Those who were exploited had very little, if any, say in the matter, and certainly didn’t share in the profits. Last year, the NCAA made $871 million in revenue. History seems to be repeating itself. Let me be the first to say that I am a student first and fanatic last, and it’s time we do something to change the culture here at UNC. Jordan Walker ’14 Classics

Borders are deceptive but always important
TO THE EDITOR: Briar Chapel, the prime example from the Oct. 21 article, “Home sales in Orange County are on the rise,” is not in Orange County. The community of Briar Chapel is located within Chatham County. And this example illustrates one of the most misunderstood concepts in American cities and regions. Mailing addresses typically do not correspond with county, municipal or school district boundaries. Proclaiming that your community or your business is located in Chapel Hill or Durham, no matter what a mailing address says, provides almost no information about the most important components of American life: education, taxation, voting and land use regulations. A Chapel Hill address does not determine school districts, property tax rates or local government jurisdictions. Mailing addresses today are often used as marketing tools by savvy businesses, developers and real estate professionals. All men (and women) might be created equal. But local educational, political and regulatory situations vary widely. In the United States, significant changes occur simply by crossing a municipal, county or state boundary. People and companies with means commonly utilize these crossborder differentials to maximize their advantages in taxation, education or regulation. Understanding where we actually live and the political boundaries that matter provides much greater clarity about the structural contexts that shape our lives. Marc Howlett Graduate student City and regional planning

Fanfare for a fun fair



The town should proceed with the proposed fair.

e love fun here in Orange County. The new commissionerappointed County Fair Working Group’s idea for an Orange County-specific fair is a great idea. Though it should be distinctive from our state fair, the opportunity could be a gold mine for economic activity in the county — not to mention a prime opportunity to showcase Orange County pride. Having a county fair specifically in Orange County would be more than just an

event to bring in business and tourism. It would also be a chance to celebrate the county’s rich history in the state. Recent news has speculated on the ability of Orange County to continue the tourism boom that has spiked the county’s economic growth. Well, our county commissioners seem to have handed us a chance to do just that. The County Fair Working Group has reported that dreams of a county fair could be realized as soon as 2015. As tempting as “the sooner the better” ideology may be, it will be important for the group to be certain of its finished product before

staging a fair. As long as parking woes plague Orange County, such a large-scale public event will be a traffic coordinator’s worst nightmare. Attention should also be devoted to ensuring the reputation and atmosphere don’t mimic that of the North Carolina State Fair, whose atmosphere would probably be amiss in Orange County. Overall, an Orange County fair would be a great addition to the county. Residents interested in the development are invited to next Wednesday’s open meeting at the Solid Waste Operations Center located at 1207 Eubanks Road in Chapel Hill.

Students must speak out about athletics
TO THE EDITOR: Regarding Professors Margolis’ and Smith’s Oct. 14 letter, I find it disappointing that more students have not stepped into the discussion. Despite the many grumblings I hear among peers about the pervasive athletics-first culture here on campus, the majority of public dissension has been limited to academics. Big-time sports trivializes our collective identity. Often, when I tell someone I go to UNC, the conversation immediately turns to sports. Before we can even begin to have a discussion on the University’s groundbreaking research, teaching, top-notch schools and departments, I must first — because I am polite — discuss the previous evenings’ football/basketball game. We are viewed as fans (fanatics) first and scholars second. Additionally, being a black male on this campus only makes the situation worse. On more than one occasion, I have been confused for being a revenue

Psycho World Peace
Early in Monday’s preseason game, Tyler Hansbrough looked ready to fight until he realized that the man who had just fouled him was Metta World Peace, noted brawler and Queens, N.Y. native. But don’t think you’re too tough, World Peace. You wouldn’t last a second in the mean streets of Chapel Hill.

It begins
The annual game of Humans vs. Zombies has started up once more. Unfortunately, this signals the gruesome tasking of having to avoid the bandana-clad, Nerf gun-wielding socially inept. Fortunately, this also signals the unleashing of ridiculous amounts of fodder for both the Quick Hits and kvetches.

Old habits die hard
Three Utah Boy Scout leaders could be facing jail time after toppling a boulder that had taken millions of years to form in the state’s Goblin Valley State Park. The old-school scout leaders apparently thought that the unstable rock wasn’t straight enough, and thus could have corrupted the young Scouts’ minds.

The Oct. 23 letter from James Holman was submitted by him as a UNC employee, not in his capacity as chair of the Personnel Issues Committee for the Employee Forum.

The third dimension
The first 3-D printers have been delivered to America’s Caribbean neighbor, Haiti. The printers are being used to create custom prosthetics and even buildings. This is a stark contrast to the 3-D printers delivered to America’s other neighbor, Canada, which has been using them to create jorts and hockey pucks.

A ho new world
A new “dating” app called Carrot Dating will allow men to entice women into first dates by giving bribes ranging from a full tank of gas to plastic surgery. It’s the newest technology in man’s quest to avoid actually having to hire prostitutes. The app is great for people that love Tinder but hate self-respect.

A heart of mold
Former Vice President Dick Cheney revealed pictures of his pretransplant heart on Sunday’s “60 Minutes.” After five heart attacks, the heart was striking. Unlike most hearts, this one was three times the normal size. Also unlike most hearts, this one was still beating and demanding small children as tributes.
