Laura Fjeld isn’t a career politi-
cian.
The Democrat from Orange
County is a self-proclaimed new-
comer to the realm of politics —
she has spent the last five years as
vice president and general counsel
for the UNC system.
But she firmly believes Congress
needs a fresh voice like hers.
“Our existing representatives
and Congress are so broken. The
system is broken,” she said.
Fjeld is the only Democratic
candidate so far to announce a
campaign for the U.S. House of
Representatives’ 6th District seat,
occupied for the last 15 terms by
Rep. Howard Coble, R-N.C., who
will not be running for re-election.
Coble won in 2012 with 60.9
percent of the vote in the district,
which encompasses portions of
Orange County and the Triad.
Three Republicans are vying
for the GOP nomination in May
— Phil Berger Jr., the district
attorney of Rockingham County,
Don Webb, a High Point financial
adviser, and Rev. Mark Walker,

Though questions still swirl
around the reasons for an increase
in parking costs for students, the
Board of Trustees’ Finance and
Infrastructure Committee opted to
approve a contentious nighttime
parking fee.
Though most items on the board
agenda Wednesday were just under
discussion, members did take UNC
one step closer to tacking on a contro-
versial $10.40 nighttime parking fee.
The board also signaled concern
with several systemwide policies,
including the shortened drop/add
period, competency assessments and
out-of-state tuition hikes.
Parking fee
The board’s Finance and
Infrastructure Committee approved
what Executive Vice Chancellor and
Provost Jim Dean said was one of
the most contentious student fees
discussed this year. The $10.40 fee
increase is intended to allow parking
after 5 p.m. on campus — an ame-
nity that is currently free. It will go
before the full board today.
“It’s a question of whether
everyone should pay a smaller fee
or whether only certain students
should pay $227,” he said. “After
our (Tuition and Fee Advisory Task
Force) meeting last week, Christy
came back to me and said the stu-
dents would actually approve this
fee.”
Student Body President Christy
Lambden said the fee would affect
students, but not as much as the
alternative: a $227 yearlong permit.
“It was a very reluctant approval
of the $10.40 fee,” Lambden said.
The annual fee proposed by
UNC’s Department of Public Safety
only applies to students, and fresh-
men will be excluded from paying
it.
Chancellor Carol Folt said the
fee could help improve campus
security.
“I think it’s a safety issue that at
night people should be able to get as
close as they can to the destination
they’re going to, so I’m glad people
can park close,” she said.
Budget reductions
The Board of Trustees also dis-
cussed budget cuts. The UNC Board
of Governors mandated three reduc-
tions systemwide with about $66
million for management and flexibil-
ity, $16 million for infrastructure effi-
ciencies and $10 million for opera-
tional and administrative efficiencies.
Reductions amounted to $44 mil-
lion to UNC-CH, including cuts to
the UNC School of Medicine and the
Cancer Research Fund.
The cuts represent about half of the

The home of North Carolina
basketball could soon get a major
makeover.
Discussions about renovations to
the Dean Smith Center sparked for
the second time in a year — but ques-
tions remain about the level of fund-
ing needed to spruce up one of the
University’s most famous landmarks.
Athletic Director Bubba
Cunningham said the project is only
in its beginning stages — but it is
time for a change.
“The stadium is about 30 years old,
and I just think that if we don’t do
anything that we’re going to look up
five, 10, 15 years from now and won-
der why we’re behind,” he said. “We
need to continue to invest in the facili-
ties and make sure they stay relevant.”
Steve Kirschner, spokesman for
the athletic department, emphasized
multiple possibilities for improve-
ments to the Smith Center.
“Can we do renovations or would
it make more prudent sense to build
a new facility?” Kirschner said. “We
don’t know, that’s why this is in the
early stages.”
Senior Associate Athletic Director
Martina Ballen said when a plan is
finalized, the money for renovations
would come from several sources.
“It could come from donors, it
could be fundraised and a por-
tion of it would be debt,” she said.
“Depending on the scope of the proj-
ect, it is typically that combination.”
Ballen said when the Smith
Center was first constructed, all the
funds came from private donors. She
said that would not be a possibility
this time around.
There is no possibility that stu-
dent fees will be raised for the reno-
vation, Ballen added.
“The student fee was raised here
back in 2005-06 for the renovation
of Carmichael (Arena), but that’s the
only time here that we have done
that,” she said.
Kirschner said he has not heard
any formal complaints, but the sta-
dium’s age is showing.
“There’s 20,000 people at the
games and they talk about the con-
courses being really crowded,” he said.

Valee Taylor likes to show people his
aquaculture facility where he and his sister
raise nearly 300,000 tilapia fish a year.
“It’s hard to expand because of UNC
and UNC Hospitals, there’s little interest
in this end of the county,” said Taylor, the
founder and co-owner of Taylor Fish Farm
and a UNC graduate.
Taylor’s aquaculture farm operates in a
10,000-square-foot building in northern
Orange County.
Sometimes it’s easy to forget there’s
more to Orange County than UNC — but
new agritourism efforts seek to remind
residents and visitors alike of the county’s
agricultural roots.
Carl Matyac, county extension director
at the Orange County Center, said agri-
tourism shows people what the farm expe-
rience really is and where their food comes
from. It accounts for a small fraction of
agricultural revenue, but he said farmers
in the area hope to see it grow.
Matyac said expanding for aquaculture
facilities can be cumbersome.
“The market could hold a whole lot
more (aquaculture) but they seem to be

who announced his candidacy
Wednesday, is the son of N.C. Senate
President Pro Tempore Phil Berger.
Fjeld has spent the last three
decades as a lawyer for various firms
and as a North Carolina-certified
mediator — a role in which she said
her key responsibility is listening.
“One of the reasons that I’m run-
ning for Congress is because I think
that people aren’t listening,” she
said. “We’re in the mess that we’re
in because representatives aren’t
listening to the people who they rep-
resent, and they’re not open-minded
to each other’s viewpoints either.”
Fjeld has built her platform on
building the economy and encour-
aging job creation.
And given her tenure with the
UNC system, she said education
would be a top priority. She left her
job in the system this spring and
announced her campaign in August.
Fjeld said she wants to do every-
thing possible to support public
higher education — not only because
of its critical role in the state’s econo-
my, but also because it allows people
to go back to school, obtain a steady
job and support their families.

the crown among our state assets,”

Ali Everets plays Arachne in “Tales from Ovid.” The play opens today at 8 p.m. at Kenan Theatre.
By Karishma Patel
Staff Writer
Roman gods and goddesses are popular
with Chapel Hill theater companies this
month.
Kenan Theatre Company is presenting
“Tales from Ovid,” based on Ted Hughes’
adapted work from Ovid’s “Metamorphoses,”
from Thursday through Monday.
The play is a compilation of differ-
ent myths from “Metamorphoses,” but
Professional Director Jeremy Skidmore
said the adaptation that Kenan Theatre
Company is performing is different
from the current PlayMakers Repertory
Company production.
He said in the mid-1990s, while
American playwright Mary Zimmerman
was writing her adaptation of the poem, the
Royal Shakespeare Company in England
was working on its production of Ted
Hughes’ book based on the same myth.
“So historically, in England when the
companies pick up the play they choose
‘Tales from Ovid’ over ‘Metamorphoses,’”
Skidmore said. “And in the United States,
everybody’s been doing ‘Metamorphoses’
and not ‘Tales from Ovid.’”
After learning that PlayMakers was
doing “Metamorphoses,” Skidmore pitched
the idea of doing the two productions at the
same time. He brought a colleague of 13
years, Kelly Maxner, to UNC as the profes-
sional choreographer for the show.
Maxner said much of the creation process
comes out of the imagery the text creates.
Junior dramatic art major Max Bitar,
who is playing Narcissus and Actaeon,
said the show relies heavily on movement
because there isn’t much of a set.
Katie McCabe, another junior dramatic
art major and the show’s lighting designer,
said she adds color to the show through the
lighting to enhance the tragic and transfor-
mative moods of the play.
Skidmore said one of the things he thinks
is unique about this play is that there is a lot
of movement, but it’s still language-based.
“I think that in the Mary Zimmerman
version, the imagery and the use of the
water really lifts the language to a higher
place, whereas I feel the Ted Hughes ver-
sion, because the language is heightened, it
demands image to come from it,” he said.
Major themes of the show are mythology,
moderation and the tragedy of obsessive
behavior. The show demonstrates the mul-
tiple layers of human beings.
“For example, in one story, a king has
a very pastoral life — a wife and a son

Following the indictments of five indi-
viduals connected to the the North Carolina
football scandal, the University issued seven
“letters of permanent disassociation,” includ-
ing three to former UNC football players,
Greg Little, Marvin Austin and Robert
Quinn.
The trio committed various NCAA infrac-
tions that led to criminal charges filed against
Jennifer Wiley Thompson, Terry Watson,
Patrick Jones, Willie Barley Jr. and Michael
Johnson Jr. in violation of the North Carolina
Uniform Athlete Agents Act.
“It’s a necessary step that the University
must take to make it clear to agents and those
who violate the rules that this type of behavior
can’t be tolerated,” Athletic Director Bubba
Cunningham said.
“Certainly you never want to have to do
something like this with your own student ath-
letes, but they put the University at great risk.”
The letters sent to Little, Marvin and Austin
state that the disassociation is “intended to
restrict ... involvement in further embar-
rassing the University and jeopardizing the
University’s commitment to full NCAA rules
compliance.”
Watson, Jones, Barley and Johnson were
also sent letters of disassociation.
The University sent Thompson, a former
UNC tutor, a disassociation letter signed by
former Athletic Director Dick Baddour in
November 2010.
The recent batch of letters, dated Nov. 15
and signed by Cunningham, prohibit the indi-
viduals from contacting any current or future
UNC student athlete.
The letters also state that the University will
not accept financial donations for the purpose
of recruiting or any other reasons, and will not
allow any of the recipients of the letters to have
contact with prospective and enrolled student
athletes.
The recipients of the letters will not have
access to the football center or any other cam-
pus athletic facilities, and are stripped of any
special athletics benefits not available to the
general public, according to the letters.
The indictment of Watson of Watson Sports
Agency states that he provided Little, Quinn
and Austin with nearly $24,000 in improper
benefits.
Quinn, a defensive end with the St. Louis
Rams, and Little, a wide receiver with the
Cleveland Browns, were declared permanently
ineligible in 2010, and UNC dismissed Austin,
most recently cut from the Dallas Cowboys,
from the team.

Col. Oliver North is a decorated
combat veteran of the U.S. Marines
with more than 50 years of service
devoted to the military. Since his time
on the National Security Council
during President Ronald Reagan’s
administration, North has gone on to
work as a Fox News contributor and
New York Times best-selling author.
His newest book, “American Heroes:
On the Homefront,” chronicles first-
hand accounts of American soldiers
and their journeys from the battle-
field to back home. North will be hold-
ing a signing for his book Thursday
at Flyleaf Books.
North spoke with staff writer
Robert McNeely about the inspira-
tion for his book and the men and
women he wrote about.
Daily Tar Heel: What makes a per-
son a hero in your eyes?
Oliver North: The definition of a
hero is not someone who catches
the pass at an end zone or wears
the spandex suit in the comic book,
but rather a hero by definition is a
person who puts him- or herself at
risk for the benefit of others. That
defines who a hero is, and it certain-
ly defines those who I’ve covered in
this war, those that I had the great
privilege of serving with in Vietnam
and my dad, who was a hero in
World War II and Korea.
DTH: You’ve devoted over 50 years
of your life to the U.S. military. In
what ways has the military changed,
and how do you view the armed ser-
vices today?
ON: There’s no doubt it’s changed
dramatically. Looking back at the
pictures of me and my riflemen in
Vietnam, I’m the second-tallest guy
there and I was barely 6 feet. Today
I’m the dwarf in the pictures with
these guys. The soldiers, sailors, air-
men and Marines in service today
Energy leads UNC past NC State
By Grace Raynor
Assistant Sports Editor
RALEIGH — The North
Carolina volleyball team watched
as freshman setter Abigail Curry’s
service ace forcefully hit the
ground for a 10-point lead against
N.C. State midway through the
second set Wednesday.
The referee immediately blew
his whistle, and each team reced-
ed to its respective bench for what
would be the beginning of two
starkly different timeout talks.
The Tar Heels had just clinched
the first set 25-17 and were a mere
two points away from tripling the
Wolfpack’s point total midway
through the second set.
N.C. State volleyball coach
Bryan Bunn’s distress was evi-
dent by the look across his face.
“Let’s go,” he said. “There’s no
emotion out there right now.”
Meanwhile, North Carolina vol-
leyball coach Joe Sagula couldn’t
have had a more foreign dilemma.
His team was animated — excited
— in the Tar Heels’ 3-0 sweep.
His message was simpler.
“Play with discipline,” he said.
“Stay focused.”
And that’s just what his No. 14
team did en route to its 25th win
of the season.
UNC took the match (25-17,
25-14, 25-20) and defeated the
Wolfpack in its last regular-
season home contest.
The Tar Heels were led offen-
sively by their veterans, particu-
larly graduate student Jovana
Bjelica, who played in Reynolds
Coliseum for the first time in her
career Wednesday.
Bjelica has been fighting back
injuries all season, but didn’t
allow them to faze her as she put
together a nine-kill, 12-dig and
three-service ace performance.
“Honestly, I have no idea
(what the injuries are),” she said.
“It’s some complicated medi-
cal words and I’m just like, ‘You
know what? Whatever. Tell me
what I need to do and I’ll do
that.’”
Bjelica’s 12 digs were a product
of Sagula’s decision to play her in
the back row, as well as the front
row, beginning in the fourth set
of UNC’s matchup with Florida
State earlier in the month.
It’s a duty she embraces.
“That was my role my whole
life and it was weird for me not
playing that ... I had to adjust to
that one,” she said.
“This comes naturally. This
is something that I’ve done my
whole career.”

are bigger, more educated, better-
armed and better-trained than any
military force in history. What we
have now is the finest military any
nation has ever had, and they have
more combat experience than any
military in history.
DTH: What was your inspiration
for the book, and why did you decide
to write about these people?
ON: I had done a documentary for
Fox News where I went to Iraq with
a Marine battalion and got to film
them. While I was overseas, some
of them got hurt and killed, and
there were letters sent to their fami-
lies, and we were there to cover the
whole thing. When I got back home,
my wife said to me that “Before you
made this documentary you never
knew what it was like for those of us
back home.” And she was right.
When you’re engaged as a Marine
your focus is 110 percent on what’s
going on on the ground. Meanwhile
at home, your family is worried ...
with the thought in the back of their
mind that a chaplain is going to come
up to the front door. So she chal-
lenged me to tell the rest of that story.
DTH: Did you have any personal
experiences that affected your writ-
ing of this book?
ON: I was signing books out in
Oklahoma. A woman walked up to
me and gave me a photograph to sign
dated in last July. She said, “Make that
out in the memory of Chad.” I asked if
this was Chad, and she told me “Yes,
he was my son.” She said he had been
hit with an (improvised explosive
device) during service which killed
him instantly. Now, I don’t know
about other people, but when some-
body says something like that to me,
and I look at the picture of someone
who was here weeks ago, it’s like put-
ting your heart through a saber.
DTH: How have the stories you’ve
heard changed you as a person?
ON: It certainly made me more
sensitive to my children and grand-
children. It’s made me more sensi-
tive to the fact that this is the longest
war America has ever fought and
how the sacrifices demanded by
that are literally unprecedented.
The greatest generation was what
my parents were, but this is the best
and bravest of this generation. And
again, it inspires me to be around
them. To be in this company of
heroes.
UNC sent letters of permanent
disassociation to seven people.
Senior Kayla Berringer said the
victory comes at a crucial time for
the Tar Heels, who dropped their
last two road games in Florida,
and who also lost the match at
N.C. State last season.
The difference between this
year and last year?
“There was so much more con-
fidence on the court. There was
an ease about the game,” she said.
“They get a point? No big deal.
We’re coming back, we’re gonna
make a run next time.”
Berringer, who had three kills

“And we killed State on their

and a happy life,” Maxner said. “And hidden
deep inside the forest he has his wife’s sister,
trapped, and he’s cut out her tongue, and he
rapes her almost every other day.”
Maxner also said that a lot of the play is
about transformation and change.
“Human beings strive for change and yet
we’re so terrified of it at the same time. The
play is very life-affirming and at the same
time, terrifying,” he said.
“Why not go see something like that?”

Q&A with Col. Oliver North
Former North Carolina coach Dean
Smith awarded Medal of Freedom
Former North Carolina basketball coach
Dean Smith was one of 16 individuals hon-
ored with the Presidential Medal of Freedom
in a ceremony Wednesday morning.
Though his health prevented Smith from
attending the ceremony, his wife, Dr. Linnea
Smith, accepted the award on his behalf.
“While coach Smith couldn’t join us today
due to an illness he is facing with extraordi-
nary courage, we also honor his courage in
helping to change our country,” said Obama
in his opening remarks. “He recruited the first
black scholarship athlete to North Carolina
and helped integrate a restaurant and a
neighborhood in Chapel Hill. That’s the kind
of character he represented on and off the
court.”

Princess Anna of Arendelle (Kristen Bell)
teams up with rugged mountain man Kristoff
(Jonathan Groff ) and a hilarious snowman
named Olaf (Josh Gad) to
save their kingdom from an
eternal winter.
The leader of this frozen
madness is the Snow Queen,
Elsa (Idina Menzel), who also
happens to be Anna’s sister.
Anna, Kristoff and Olaf go
on a whirlwind adventure and
battle magical creatures and
crazy weather to put a stop to
her sister’s madness.
“Frozen” is the latest

The second movie in the Hobbit trilogy
continues the adventures of Bilbo Baggins’
(Martin Freeman) and his dwarf compan-
ions on their quest to defeat the dragon
Smaug and reclaim stolen treasure.
Along the way, they encounter
elves portrayed by Orlando Bloom and
Evangeline Lilly.
Meanwhile, wizard Gandolf (Ian

the Necromancer of Dol Guldur. — Natalie

In this star-studded crime drama set in the 1970s, con man Irving
Rosenfeld (Christian Bale) and his partner/lover (Amy Adams) are roped into
working with the FBI. The stakes are raised as they get involved with power-
brokers, politicians and mafia and get tangled in an astounding scandal.
Director David O. Russell also reunites “Silver Linings Playbook’s” Bradley
Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence as an FBI agent and Rosenfeld’s wife, respec-
tively. — Natalie Carney
The world’s greatest news team is back and
ready to take on New York City. Ron Burgundy
(Will Ferrell) and his classy clan are recruited to
form the nation’s first 24-hour news channel. The
sequel to the mega-popular 2004 film is guaran-
teed to provide laughs aplenty.
With the already all-star cast that now includes
Kristen Wiig, Harrison Ford and James Marsden,
there’s no doubting this film will be another com-
edy classic. But most importantly, the epic group is
back and taking classy to a whole new level.
— Avery Thompson
2014 is fast approaching and it looks like “Her” is going
to be one of the most interesting movies to ring in the New
Year. “Her” is about Theodore (Joaquin Phoenix), a lonely
writer who finds himself falling in love with his new operat-
ing system. Scarlett Johansson voices Samantha, the face-
less machine that shows a lot more personality than any
computer should.
The movie also features big names such as Amy Adams,
Olivia Wilde and Rooney Mara, and was directed by Spike
Jonze, who did “Where the Wild Things Are” and “Being
John Malkovich.” There is no doubt that this movie will be a
weird one, but it’s going to be worth that trip to the theater.

Leonardo DiCaprio portrays Jordan Belfort as he
becomes a wealthy stockbroker, living the life of
luxury.
The Martin Scorsese film promises an excess

Matthew McConaughey and Jonah

The latest from the Coen brothers follows a
week in the life of struggling folk singer, Llewyn
Davis.
Starring Oscar Isaac alongside Carey Mulligan
and John Goodman, this film pays homage
to the New York City folk scene of the
1960s.
The comedy-drama won the Grand
Prix at the 2013 Cannes Film
Festival and actor Isaac is
already getting award atten-
tion for his leading role.

It’s about time they made a movie about Walt
Disney, and we all knew that Tom Hanks would be
the perfect man to play him. But “Saving Mr.
Banks,” coming out December 20, is not
simply about Disney — it focuses on P.
L. Travers, the original author of “Mary
Poppins.”
Emma Thompson plays Travers,
who develops a no-nonsense attitude
as Mr. Disney makes her novel into a
film.
The movie promises a unique look
into Disney’s life as Travers tries to
make sure her beloved characters
are not made into a joke. — Lizzie

Cian Nugent & The Cosmos
Born With The Caul
Psych-folk
Irish guitarist Cian Nugent
with backing band The Cosmos
opens the gates in its latest
release Born With the Caul to
an orchestrated adventure that
crosses progressive rock and
traditional folk.
Born With the Caul is an
all-or-nothing invitation, and
once you’re in it, you aren’t
going anywhere. Nugent
opens with “Grass Above My
Head,” a modest six-and-
a-half minute delight of a
serene guitar accompanied by
light strings before the folksy
song speeds up and calls to
horns for a jazz break.
Cian Nugent & The
Cosmos let an eerie fog
drift in with the proceeding
“Double Horse.” While a gui-
tar spiritually glides through
ambient drums, listeners are
convinced to reflect through
a sonic mystery. “Double
Horse” is an introspective and
existential look into a darker
and captivating world many
musicians not dare enter.
The momentum never
fades in this three-song
epic. Nugent and band keep
it rolling into “Houses of
Parliament.” Once again
Nugent showcases his guitar
but transitions into a piercing
performance cutting through
The Cosmos’ cathartic storm
as the album’s climax builds.
The song again builds
again in the last 12 minutes,
switching from grandiose and
powerful blasts of prog-rock
energy to groovy jams to ease
listeners down.
Once the 45 minutes is up,
listeners may feel disoriented
after the experimental ride
but will be rejuvenated from
the awakening experience.
— Charlie Shelton
N.C. Music Love Army
We Are Not For Sale
Protest songs
In an angered response to
legislation passed by North
Carolina’s Republican-led
government, several North
Carolina musicians have
joined together to create
the N.C. Music Love Army.
Calling for a war fighting
for equality with weapons of
love and hope, the group’s
album We Are Not For Sale
seeks to generate the pas-
sion needed to change the
political and social prob-
lems present in our state
— anthems for the Moral
Monday movement.
In the summer of 2013,
The Old Ceremony’s Django
Haskins began the musical
movement with “We Are Not
For Sale.” A catchy song per-
fect for morale raising at dem-
onstrations, Haskin’s folksy
track contains a chorus sure to
create feelings of hope.
Though tracks like “Get
Free” lack the catchiness
present in the majority of the
rest of the album, songs like
“Abraham Lincoln In His
Grave” make up for it. Here,
a goofy and folksy sound is
mixed with feisty and humor-
ous lyrics. Tying in the govern-
ment’s preoccupation with
children’s ability to write in
cursive and disregard for vot-
ing accessibility for minorities
and youth, lyrics of the song
include, “Y’all must be high on
Viagra, drunk off Fox News
propaganda.”
In “Army of Love,” a chorus
of voices sing, “we are sur-
rounded by an army of love
and the powers that be are
not enough to stop us.”
A fitting summary of the
N.C. Music Love Army, these
songs promote change and
reinforce a sense of together-
ness among opponents of
North Carolina’s conservative
legislature.

Q&A with The Letter Jackets
The Letter Jackets is the
rock side-project of Chandler
Holt and John Teer of
Chatham County Line. Teer
wanted a rocking band and
had been jamming with fellow
Letter Jackets members Roger
Gupton and Evans Nicholson
when Holt asked to sit in on
a session and bring in some
songs he’d been working on.
That encounter, which
installed Holt on acoustic
guitar and vocals, gave birth
to what was known as The
Jackets. A few years later, the
band is now The Letter Jackets.
In light of the band’s current
cache of CD release shows
they’ll be playing around the
state, Holt spoke to Diversions
staff writer Bo McMillan about
the band’s sound, its future and
its inspirations.
DIVERSIONS: Did you write
the songs for this band with a
specific rock feel, or did they
just not happen to work with
Chatham County Line?
CHANDLER HOLT: I don’t
really set to write a tune to
any one style. I definitely
notice when I write that there
are these consistent themes
that run through the tunes.
To me, it felt kind of like
‘50s, ‘60s-style rock. I love

that kind of music, vocal and
harmony-led music with lots
of simple hooks.
DIVE: What bands would
you say inspired your writing?
CH: Definitely I think The
Everly Brothers has probably
been a pretty huge influence
on me.
I love those dudes, I wish I
could sing anywhere near as
high as either of ‘em.
Early Beatles, I’m really
into that and still am.
Other than that, I don’t
know man, any of those
brother bands, any of that
‘50s and ‘60s stuff. The
Jayhawks — they’re from the
‘90s — that’s a more modern
influence.
DIVE: How does playing
live differ when you’re on the
vocals and guitar, instead of
the banjo?

Chatham County Line for me,
and I think that’s what’s really
neat about it.
It’s cool, man, it’s different.
Singing into the style of mics
we use for a rock band, as
opposed to those we used for
Chatham County Line — it’s
just a whole ‘nother kick.
DIVE: Where exactly do you
see The Letter Jackets going
in the future?
CH: I think for right now
the goal is just to play as
many shows as we can.
COURTESY OF THE LETTER JACKETS
The Letter Jackets performs in Durham tomorrow night and in Raleigh on Friday with Josh Moore.
Chatham County Line isn’t
going to be slowing down any
time soon.
Right now I’m pretty hot
to play the good CD release
shows we have coming up, and
try and broaden the fan base
and get people familiar with it,
‘cause no one has really heard
of The Letter Jackets yet.
I think we’re dedicated,
and we totally hope to make
a second record. I think the
future looks good right now.

Aries (March 21-April 19)
Today is a 7 -- There’s plenty to do
at home. A little bit of cleaning and
organizing benefits you in the long run.
Deliver your message ... tweet or post to
your heart’s desire. Add your own clever
touches. You have what’s needed.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Today is an 8 -- Less structure may mean
more creative results. Don’t push within
the group. Agree to disagree. You have
no trouble getting your message across.
Get the invitations sent. Don’t gamble.
It’s not time to go, yet.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Today is a 9 -- Your intuition helps
with unstable conditions. Finish house-
hold chores. Arrive early to avoid stress.
Devise a strong sales pitch. Listen atten-
tively. Good news arrives from far away.
Go ahead and get crazy excited.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Today is a 9 -- You’re up to big things and
can’t do all of them alone. Get the family
to help and gain more than you thought
possible in areas you weren’t even con-
sidering. Work interferes with travel. Talk
about what’s going on.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
Today is a 7 -- Disagreement requires
compromise. But wait ... don’t make
promises you can’t keep. This one’s
tough. You’re in charge. Your part-
ner comes up with a good idea,
financial or otherwise. Work it out.
Communication is the key.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Today is an 8 -- Do your home-
work at home or with friends. Romance
may be difficult, but not impos-
sible, especially if you use the right
words. Don’t be intimidated. Reveal your
true feelings. Go with “authentic fool”
and take pride.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
Today is an 8 -- Technical difficulties
spur you to identify and surpass a major
barrier. Add passion to your work
(and to your romance). Gentle
persuasion works better. Get creative in
your attire. Your status rises.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
Today is a 9 -- A surprise doesn’t
necessarily have to be unpleas-
ant. It’s all in how you look at it.
You may even discover a treasure that’s
hidden at first. Keep track of
the money coming in. Intuition requires
verification. Study the stats.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Today is an 8 -- A group extends an
invitation. Clear up confusion before
proceeding. Costs may be higher than
expected. Get another perspective,
possibly from a friend who knows you
well. Consider the big picture impact.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
Today is a 9 -- Temporary confusion or
disruption could throw you off your
game. Don’t get lost in the day-to-day
static. You have bigger and better
fish to fry. Offer advice only if asked.
Hold out for the best deal.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
Today is a 9 -- Hone your powers of
persuasion at work. But beware ...
jealousies could erupt. Pay back a
debt, quietly. Unexpected news helps
you in figuring out how to go farther.
Suddenly you achieve results.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
Today is an 8 -- What you edit out is
just as important in telling the story as
what you leave in. Being
non-judgmental makes a difference in
your and their life. Your innocence is very
charming, too.

a little bit mired down with
some of the technological
details,” Matyac said.
The county has increased
marketing of agritour-
ism with a new campaign.
Agritourism includes corn
mazes, pumpkin patches and
farm tours.
County Commissioner Earl
McKee owns a farm near
Hillsborough and said the
county has the population
base to make something like
agritourism successful.
“People use their discre-
tionary funds to enjoy enter-
tainment like agritourism,
which can be a challenge for
some residents after pay-
ing living expenses,” McKee
said.
Agritourism is a small
component of the county’s
overall agricultural industry,
and more growth has hap-
pened in the production and
direct market sales.
“Agritourism is not where
the money’s at,” Matyac said.
In the five years leading
up to 2007, income from
farms in Orange County rose
nearly 150 percent to $4.4
million, according to data
from the U.S. Department of
Agriculture.
Farm-related income will
likely increase again when
the department releases new
data, said Michael Lanier,
an agribusiness agent at the
Orange County Center.
Residents demand local,
systemwide budget reductions.
Board members said the
implications of this could
include reduced support for
compliance and safety, delayed
technology purchases and
reduced core library materials.
Talking tuition
UNC-system President
Tom Ross said earlier this
year that in-state tuition
increases would only be nec-
essary in an emergency case.
Dean said there would be
no in-state tuition hikes at the
undergraduate level next year.
“We did go back to Tom
Ross’ office and asked, ‘Is this
really what you mean?’” he said.
“He said ‘Yes,’ no increases.”
But the board also discussed
how the 12.3-percent increase
to out-of-state tuition at UNC
next year could impact the
University and whether it
could affect how many stu-
dents enroll and apply.
“At what point do you hit
the upper limits of what we
can charge? Where is the
break? We can’t be that far
away,” said board member
Charles Duckett.

Frat asks for town bag tax

Ty Fenton has a mission: to
rid Chapel Hill of grocery bags.
Fenton is a member of the
environmental honors fra-
ternity at UNC, a group that
wants to decrease the use of
disposable grocery bags in the
area by proposing a bag tax.
Epsilon Eta has introduced
the idea of a tax on single-use
grocery bags to the towns of
Chapel Hill and Carrboro.
“There are hundreds of
things that we do which are
wasteful, but using single-use
bags is by far the most unnec-
essary one,” said Fenton, a
senior environmental science
major and the fraternity’s
alumni chairman.
“It is incredibly easy to use a
tote bag, or even reuse single-
use paper or plastic bags, but
it’s just something no one does
because no one thinks about it.”
He said the group has
contacted both Carrboro and
Chapel Hill in the hopes that
one, if not both towns, will like
the idea. The fraternity, which
Fenton said is the first and only
group of its kind in the nation,
sent a letter to the Chapel
Hill Town Council earlier this
month to present its ideas.
Their plan consists of a
5-cent tax on every disposable
bag from the store used by a
customer — both plastic and
paper. By placing a price on
the use of disposable bags, the
fraternity wants to decrease
use of them.
Council member Sally
Greene said she thinks the idea
is worth thinking about and
encouraged the fraternity to
seek a petition for the council
to formally consider the idea.
“Environmental protec-
tion is critically important
to the town and on the Town
Council’s mind with every
issue we discuss,” she said.
In a letter to the council,
fraternity member Thomas
Strayhorn said a similar bag
tax in Washington, D.C. was
very effective and managed to
decrease disposable bag use
in the city by 87 percent.
Both the town and the
stores could potentially profit
from the proposed bag tax.
Fenton said including the
vendor in the proceeds from
the tax has shown to be effec-
tive in Washington, where
stores keep 20 percent of the
collected fees.
“This encourages enforce-
ment as vendors now have a
reason to accurately report
bag usage and enforce the
tax,” Fenton said.
The fraternity’s proposed
tax would only have a small
impact on shoppers, he said.
The cost would amount
to only 75 cents per shop-
ping trip, or three dollars per
month, for the average family.
Those who wish to avoid
the tax could either use tote
bags or reuse disposable bags.
Within a year a $5 tote bag
will have paid for itself seven
times, Fenton said.
“Basically, the price is not
to break the bank of someone
who wants to use disposable
bags, but simply make them
think about it,” he said.

which is hormone-free,
antibiotic-free and produced

This interest makes the
county a profitable place for
farmers, McKee said. While
farmers already in opera-
tion struggle to expand,
the area’s unique market
is attracting new farmers
to open shop, specifically
younger people interested in
agriculture.
“A lot of new young people
are interested and getting
involved but cost of land is
prohibitive and cost of equip-
ment is expensive,” Matyac
said.
Regardless of these chal-
lenges, the availability of
direct markets makes the
county unique for farmers
as they develop personal
relationships through sales,
McKee said.
Farmers markets, road-
side stands and programs
that deliver local produce
to homes foster this direct-
market mentality.
Matyac and Lanier have
worked with the county to
support programs that keep
farmers from going into
debt.
The county offers intensive
trainings for new farmers,
farm incubators and assis-
tance in local food processing.
“Anyone that can find a
niche market, I think, will be
able to do well,” McKee said.

and Undergraduate
Admissions Steve Farmer said
tuition hikes could be a deter-
rent to out-of-state students.
A survey conducted of 391
potential out-of-state students
by admissions concluded that
they are more likely to choose
peer institutions before UNC
when there is a high price tag.
“There’s no other place
that’s quite been able to do
what we’ve been able to pull
off,” Farmer said.
Student affairs
Faculty have expressed con-
cerns with systemwide changes
like standardized assessments
and the new drop/add period.
The board questioned why
UNC-CH was not included on
the committee that developed
the shortened drop/add policy.
Faculty Chairwoman Jan
Boxill said though UNC-CH
did not have a representative
on that committee, it has a
representative now.
Groups such as UNC-CH’s
Educational Policy Committee
are working on small changes
to the policy, such as grandfa-
thering students in, she said.
“It was given to us without
us,” Boxill said.
university@dailytarheel.com
costs have not been deter-
mined yet, but does not see it
becoming a commercial arena.
Sophomore Laura Fellwock,
a member of Carolina
Fever’s Tickets and Database
Operations Board, said she
hopes more student seating
will be available.
“It can be very difficult on
the students who want to wit-
ness the game from first-class
angles, like the risers, but
need to wait in line at 3 a.m.
in order to get that front-row
riser position,” she said in an
email.
Fellwock said students
should have the chance to
vote on the kinds of renova-
tions that could take place, as
well as the Rams Club mem-
bers who might fund it.
Cunningham said the
conversation must be con-
tinued.
“It is important that we
stay at the forefront of college
basketball.”

she said.
Thomas Shanahan, who
replaced Fjeld in the UNC sys-
tem, said anyone who worked
in the system would bring
knowledge about higher educa-
tion and the issues its leaders
face to the legislative process.
While it is against the Board
of Governors’ policy and state
law for the UNC system to
endorse any political candi-
date, Shanahan said Fjeld was
a great asset to the system.
“I think it is fair to say the
university would wish her
well,” he said.
Fjeld said she’s committed
to bringing the government
back to a place of compromise
and open-mindedness.
“Voters are tired of the
extremism and the extreme
partisan politics that we have
all been in the grip of for the
last several years,” she said.
Despite her lack of political
experience, Fjeld said she isn’t
focusing on the challenges of
the campaign — she said it’s
all about the opportunity.
“Eventually we will have
an identified opponent, and I
look forward to the opportu-
nity to debate that individual,
whoever it turns out to be, and
to meet the voters,” she said.
Fjeld was endorsed Tuesday
by EMILY’s List, a national
organization that aims to elect
pro-abortion rights women to
office. Fjeld would be the first
woman elected to the district.
Matt Hughes, chairman of
the Orange County Democratic
Party, said Fjeld will make a
competitive candidate.
“I really believe she can
make a strong case for herself.”

Established 1893, 120 years of editorial freedom
QUOTE OF THE DAY
FEATURED ONLINE READER COMMENT
DTH ignored critical
details on housing
TO THE EDITOR:
The DTH omitted
critical details and ignored
key facts related to the
potential Franklin Student
Housing project (“There
needs to be a demand for
potential housing,” Nov.
20).
The DTH is simply
wrong to state, without
data, that students have
“historically resided in
homes.” There are no fewer
than 30 large apartment
complexes catering to UNC
students in the surround-
ing areas. These complexes
would not exist without
student demand for apart-
ments.
The DTH is also wrong
to say “now is not the
right time” for this proj-
ect. Chapel Hill’s housing
remains undersupplied,
even with Lux Apartments
and Shortbread Lofts open-
ing in fall 2014. This inad-
equate supply is one of the
reasons the town struggles
to provide affordable hous-
ing.
John McAdams, the
project’s engineering
and zoning consultant,
emphatically stated to
the Town Council that
“Franklin Student Housing
is a concept name to be
changed,” and that this
project is “meant to appeal
to more than just stu-
dents.”
Unquestionably, adding
more downtown apart-
ments is a step in the right
direction for a denser, more
walkable and more sus-
tainable Chapel Hill. The
real question is whether
Wintergreen Hospitality
will do what McAdams
says: Break away from the
luxury student housing
model.
Resilient, flexible hous-
ing options downtown will
chart a bold path forward
for a better Chapel Hill,
but only if developers stop
building complexes with
pools, gyms, tanning beds
and 24/7 security guards,
and start building hous-
ing options that attract
not only students, but
residents of all ages and
incomes.

Why Tar Heels need
the cellphone ban
TO THE EDITOR:
Last week, the Global
Day of Remembrance for
Road Accident Victims
fell just one week after
the N.C. Supreme Court
accepted the case involving
the town of Chapel Hill’s
mobile phone ordinance.
Ironically, the Supreme
Court process will halt the
enactment of this ordi-
nance, one that is neces-
sary to protect all people
in Chapel Hill who may
potentially become road
accident victims.

Win
Turkey
Day:
8 tips
N
ext week, pupils
will head home to
celebrate the great-
est of all-American holidays:
Thanksgiving. On normal holi-
days, we rest. Not so on Turkey
Day: We compete for thanks.
Thanksgiving is a holiday
that celebrates America, which
was founded on the notion of
competition. Competition, in
economic terms, occurs when
many pursue a scarce good.
Every Black Friday, bloody
fights erupt amongst Wal-Mart
shoppers clawing for the last
discounted Tickle Me Elmo.
Witness the cornucopia of
American competition in action.
That’s why Thanksgiving is
not a restful holiday; it’s a com-
petition for thankfulness. Just
like companies compete for
money and students compete
for grades, next Thursday, fami-
lies will gather at their tables
to compete for the title of MTP
(Most Thankful Patriot).
There’s only one way for
Americans to prove thankful-
ness: consume the most food.
To ensure victory next Thursday,
what follows are economic tips
for out-eating the others:
Deregulate belts. When
there’s less government regula-
tion, businesses tend to earn
more money. Do your guests
a similar favor, and institute a
pants-optional rule at the table.
This deregulation will allow
everyone a fair shot at eating the
most without social backlash.
Free mashed flow. Businesses
that have the most free cash
flow, or extra dollar bills, out-
compete cash-strapped rivals.
While at dinner next Thursday,
try to maximize your free
mashed flow: the fork’s constant
circulation between the mashed
potatoes and your mouth.
Hedge dish risk. Businesses
that sell only one product are
less competitive than those
that make money selling sev-
eral products. That’s because
the latter strategy hedges risk.
Avoid risking your win on one
dish — eat several to counter
boredom and aid digestion.
Beet depreciation. When
businesses end up with unsold
products, they experience depre-
ciation and rapidly lose value.
You must race the Turkey Day
clock to eat your meal before it
depreciates and gets soggy.
Waistline inflation.
Businesses fear inflation because
it raises costs and eats profits.
Also be wary of your waistline
inflation. Getting too full too
fast is a recipe for Thanksgiving
disaster, so eat greens and lean
meats over carbs.
Product placement.
Businesses pay top dollar to
secure the best advert slots. This
strategy maximizes product
exposure to paying customers.
Place your dinner table seat
such that you can elbow com-
petitors and reach all the dishes.
Edible Public Offering.
When businesses want to raise
funds and grow, they auction
stock through an Initial Public
Offering (IPO). You can adopt
a similar strategy by holding an
Edible Public Offering (EPO):
Take bets from Facebook friends
on who will eat the most.
Return to the scale.
Successful businesses expand
and become more competitive
by increasing returns to scale,
where costs fall and profits rise
as production increases. Be
sure to weigh yourself and com-
petitors on a scale at dinner’s
end to determine the MTP.
Gobble gobble, y’all.

behind by a car and thrown
18 feet. Due to extensive
brain injuries, Krista never
fully recovered the life
she once had. In honor
of Krista, and all those
whose safety is threatened
by a lack of road regula-
tions in Chapel Hill, it’s
time to make a change and
have our voice heard for a
healthier UNC.
Of undergraduates, 67
percent reported either per-
sonally being involved or
knowing someone who was
involved in a motor vehicle
crash where the use of a
cellphone was present. We
are not invincible. We need
policies to protect us.
A study from the
University of Utah found
that people are as impaired
when they drive and talk
on a cellphone as they are
when they drive with a
0.08 BAC. We have laws to
discourage behavior that
threatens the common
good — why should it be
any different for cellphone
use and driving? We don’t
allow people to drive drunk
or smoke in public — why
should we allow them to
drive while distracted by
a phone when we have
research proving the harm-
fulness?
We need to get UNC
leaders like Carol Folt pub-
licly on board to advocate
for the safety of the UNC
community and speak
in support of the mobile
phone ordinance so that
the entire University can
rally behind banning
mobile phone use in cars
for a healthier UNC. As a
town, we need to advocate
for policies that protect us
and talk to legislators and
demand the tools for a safer
Chapel Hill. We cannot
wait on this issue.

Town occupancy logic
doesn’t make sense
TO THE EDITOR:
I read the Nov. 18 arti-
cle, “Illegal renting scru-
tinized,” with much inter-
est, as I own Mill House
Properties. I don’t always
agree with town policy, and
the occupancy ordinance
is on the top of my list.
I understand the intent,
but the application totally
misses.
The issues at North
Columbia mentioned in the
article are a prime example.
The town allows four unre-
lated tenants to live there,
but they only allow three
bedrooms because it’s a
duplex. And the town only
allows two parking spaces
for those four tenants.
Town policy should make
sense, and this numerical
logic for a duplex is just
plain silly.
The article also men-
tioned a student saying
no houses are left for next
year. Well, we have several
houses and condos still
available, so give us a call.
Just remember, the closer
to campus, the higher the
rent.

A
s a leading liberal
arts institution in
a Southern state,
the University should
spend the time and money
to ensure that what Louis
Rubin did for Southern
writers is remembered far
beyond his death.
Not only is Rubin an
important person in the
writing world, as an edi-
tor, publisher and critic,
but he is also a memorable
figure in the college com-
munity, as a teacher, men-
tor and founder of creative
writing programs.
Writers such as Pulitzer
A fitting farewell
EDITORIAL
Prize winner Annie
Dillard consider him a
mentor in the building
of their writing careers.
Dillard and the other
numerous writers Rubin
has mentored have shaped
contemporary Southern
literature.
In this way, Rubin has
extended his whole self
into the writing world
through the teaching and
mentoring of future writ-
ers, which will have an
effect far greater than his
individual works.
UNC’s creative writing
program, largely shaped
by Rubin, isn’t the only
one to owe a good deal
to the former professor.
He spearheaded the cre-
ative writing department
at Hollins University in
1960.
Although many will
never forget his impact
on Southern literature,
those who were not able
to know him personally
should have a chance to
experience the talents and
important influence of
Louis Rubin.
His legacy is enough
to deserve a tribute here
at UNC, whether it be
a physical monument
or more similar to the
Thomas Wolfe Creative
Writing Scholarship.
As a liberal arts univer-
sity, and as the center of
this great writer’s work,
UNC should keep Rubin’s
legacy alive for years and
students to come.
Southern literary
icon should receive
a worthy tribute.
T
he Sexual Assault
Task Force’s unani-
mous decision to
recommend the removal
of students from the adju-
dication panels that would
hear sexual assault cases is
an appropriate strategy.
The fact is, many stu-
dents are not equipped
to handle, let alone issue
judgment, on cases of this
nature and severity.
Task force members have
mentioned looking toward
external experts, or those
who have a background in
the proceedings that follow
a case of sexual assault.
Take the back seat
EDITORIAL
It is hard to believe that
students would be able to
work at the same caliber if
included.
No amount of training
will be adequate, especial-
ly when compared to the
skilled professionals who
have garnered the neces-
sary abilities to tactfully
and successfully counsel
in this area through their
many years of experience.
This insufficiency of stu-
dent training has also been
evident in the removal of
sexual assault cases from
the University’s Honor
Court due to questions
arising on what the basis
was for these cases falling
under the jurisdiction of
students to begin with.
This is not to say that
students do not have valu-
able input when it comes
to cases of violence, what-
ever its nature. Therefore,
a student voice should be
heard at some point in the
process, whether this is
through some sort of over-
sight or limited involve-
ment.
The principle of stu-
dent self-governance is
still important and should
remain intact — that is
what sets us apart from
many other institutions.
The University has
already seen how students
are not equipped to deal
with sexual assault cases,
no matter the amount of
training, but it is still nec-
essary that they remain in
the process.
Task force is right
to limit student
involvement.
One of the winningest
coaches in girl’s high
school basket-
ball resigned
Monday after
allegedly biting
one of his play-
ers in the face after a bad
play. The Carthage, Miss.
school reportedly isn’t
worried about further bit-
ing incidents, as the coach
was the only one in town
with a tooth.

A Swedish hotel con-
structed entirely of ice will
install fre alarms
this year at the
request of local
authorities
because you
can never be too cautious.
The ice bends can get to
temperatures as low as
-8 degrees Celsius. Their
partner hotel in Ecuador
recently purchased a feet
of snow plows, just in case.
After her attempt to sell
her virginity for $780,000
shockingly
fell through,
Brazilian college
student Catarina
Migliorini is back
at it, auctioning of her in-
nocence with a goal of $1.5
million. Migliorini’s male
classmate, intrigued by
her get-rich-quick scheme,
auctioned his virginity of
for a whopping $1.99.
Zombie coach Never give up Safety frst
The men’s basketball team
sufered a tough early-
season loss on
Sunday to
perennial mid-
major power
Belmont on a
late 3-pointer. The Heels
missed 24 free throws. If the
team loses to Kentucky in
early December, they will
attempt to lose to Preak-
ness University to complete
the triple crown.
Horsing around
The uncovering of plans
for Qatar’s new World Cup
stadium resulted
in a lot of lip
from soccer fans
worldwide. The
design, which
looks exactly like the female
private part, was thrust into
the pubic spotlight in the
nation with increasingly
liberal policies on female
athletes. Sorry, vagina puns
aren’t funny, period.
World Cup stadium
Asian drug smugglers
were busted recently
after plotting to
smuggle mas-
sive amounts of
methamphet-
amine into the
United States, according
to authorities. It seems as
though America’s diplo-
macy eforts by noted drug
enthusiast Dennis Rodman
are fnally beginning to pay
of.
