The Federal Transit
Administration approved a
request by Triangle Transit on
Tuesday to begin development
on a passenger train system
known as the Durham-Orange
Light Rail Transit Project.
Brad Schulz, a spokesman
for Triangle Transit, said the
approval was the first step of
many toward the completion
of the rail system. Phase one of
the project is known as project
development, in which engi-
neering and environmental
work will take place.
Schulz said the objective of
this two-year period is to define
the 17-mile route the train
will take, as well as determine
where stations will be. The
product of this phase will be a

To real estate agent Larry Tollen, getting a per-
mit for a home renovation in Chapel Hill is always
a new experience.
And Tollen is a veteran home renovator.
“Every time I have to get something permitted,
I get the impression that no one has ever done a
renovation before,” he said. “It’s like the process is
being designed for you from scratch every time.”
Tollen is not the only local realtor concerned
with the permitting process.
Desiree Goldman, a member of the Greater
Chapel Hill Association of Realtors, said the asso-
ciation discussed the slow and expensive process
at a recent meeting.
Chapel Hill is low on residential land develop-
ment — with only 2 percent of its available resi-
dential land still sitting empty — and the average
age of homes in the area is rising. Goldman said
people generally have to renovate older homes
before putting them on the market.
For those renovations in a residential area that
include additions, alterations, kitchen remodel-
ings and structural work such as pool additions
and roof replacements, the town requires a permit
from the planning department.
Cosmetic work that costs less than $5,000 does
not require a permit.
The permitting application includes a project
description, zoning and area information and
mechanical and construction details.
Permit fees are based on the price of the renova-
tion and can range from $55 to more than $2,500.
Miscellaneous fees are added for certain features

Holder: State attorneys
should question laws
By Eric Garcia
U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder told
a group of state attorneys general Tuesday
that they are not obligated to defend state
same-sex marriage bans, which could have
At a meeting of the National
Association of Attorneys General, Holder
encouraged leading attorneys to follow
the Obama administration’s example not
to defend the federal Defense of Marriage
Act, which was struck down in the U.S.
Supreme Court last summer.
“In general, I believe we must be suspi-
cious of legal classifications based solely
on sexual orientation,” Holder said in
his speech. “Our ideals are continually
advanced as our justice systems — and
our union — are strengthened.”
Holder pointed to state attorneys gen-
eral in Pennsylvania, Nevada, Virginia and
Oregon who declined to defend their state’s
gay marriage bans in court, but said refus-
ing to defend state laws should be rare and
not based on political differences.
In May 2012, North Carolina passed a
constitutional gay marriage ban, which
N.C. Attorney General Roy Cooper, a
Democrat, has said he will defend despite
Rob Schofield, policy director at the
left-leaning N.C. Policy Watch, said
Holder’s stance is “another chip” in the
same-sex marriage law.
He said attorneys general squander
state resources when they defend laws
they believe to be unconstitutional.
The attorney general cited
his non-defense of DOMA.
Eric Holder is the U.S.
attorney general. He gave
a speech on Tuesday at a

But Tyler Younts, a legal policy ana-
lyst at the conservative John Locke
Foundation, said Holder’s statements
could set a harmful legal precedent.
“State attorneys general are basically
the lawyer for the state, and to take posi-
tions against your client seems to be a
conflict of interest,” Younts said.
Younts said Holder’s sentiments could
also affect North Carolina’s voter identifi-
cation law, which Cooper has criticized.
Mike Meno, spokesman for the state
branch of the American Civil Liberties
Union, said state laws facing constitu-
tional challenges will still be defended in
court, even if an attorney general refuses.
“If you look at other states, even in the
cases where attorneys general decline to
defend, someone still steps up to defend
that law,” Meno said.
Last year, the N.C. General Assembly
passed a law that would allow the state
legislative leaders to challenge a state law
or constitutional amendment in judicial
Meno said the N.C. ACLU has filed
lawsuits over the state’s same-sex mar-
riage ban, restrictions on abortion and

“We’re confident in securing rights
for same-sex couples regardless of who’s
defending,” he said.

With more than 3,300 members involved in
Greek life, UNC fraternities and sororities offer
more than just temporary social connections —
they provide a large alumni network for students
Many current Greek students create unique
networks at UNC in terms of mentorship, career
development advice and internship opportunities.
“It’s a way to separate yourself from the other
applicants and particularly make connections
with CEOs,” said Hilliard Burton, president of
Chi Psi Fraternity.
Founded in 1855, Chi Psi’s UNC chapter is one
of the largest on campus and offers many differ-
ent networking opportunities such as dinners
with former members and guest speaker lectures.
Burton said as a brother, he has access to
alumni for career or internship suggestions.
“There are opportunities for those students in
the chapter to interact in a very direct way with
alumni,” said Aaron Bachenheimer, director of
the office of fraternity and sorority life and com-
He said Greek alumni are willing to give their
time, wisdom and advice to the students.
“Many of those alumni stay involved, stay con-
nected, come back to campus, so the students have
opportunities to meet with and network with those
folks multiple times a year and set up opportuni-
ties for internships or job connections,” he said.
He said in general, the older the group, the
more extensive the alumni networking is.
But he added some younger groups also have
very strong alumni networks.
Chartered in 1976, Alpha Phi Alpha is consid-
ered one of the newer fraternities on campus and
has about 200 alumni across the country.
Warren Wyatt, the president of Alpha Phi Alpha,
said members of the organization regard the alumni
connections as valuable to their careers.
“When you are looking for a job, you know, you
need some type of reference, some kind of credi-
bility, and alumni will help you with that,” he said.
Bachenheimer said Greek alumni tend to be
the most engaged and generous donors.
He said a lot of Greek alumni stay connected
through different ways after graduation. Some
Greek organizations have chapters across the
country and alumni are still in touch even 20 or
more years after graduation.
“There is a sense of commitment and loyalty
that gets engendered through Greek experience
that does not typically happen with most other
student organizations,” he said.
Bachenheimer said Greek students have an
added sense of permanence at the University.
“It’s a place when they come back for a foot-
ball game on a Saturday 10 years from now, they
may not know anybody on campus, but they
know in their frat, they are gonna have a con-

Abigail Coryell (front) and Mary Stewart Evans rehearse for Kenan Theatre Company’s production of “R+J,” on Wednesday.
Kenan Theatre Company puts a spin on the classic
By Megan Caron
Shakespeare’s classic love story has tran-
scended time periods and settings — now
two student directors are playing with the
show’s gender roles.
Kenan Theatre Company’s “R+J,” a mod-
ern interpretation of “Romeo and Juliet,”
“R+J,” written by Joe Calarco, follows a
group of Catholic school students as they
begin to read “Romeo and Juliet” for the
first time, breaking school rules.
The script was originally written for a
male cast, but co-directors graduate stu-
dent Nathaniel Claridad and junior Katie
Chelena thought two casts — one male
and one female — would bring a unique
dynamic to a familiar story.
A single-gender, four-person cast means
that each actor is responsible for more than
one character in the show.
“There are no costume changes, so it’s all
up to the actor to drive the show,” Claridad
The show will also be done in-the-round,
with the audience surrounding the stage,
creating a more intimate atmosphere
between the audience and the actors.
Chelena said audience members will
hear Shakespeare’s words in a new and
“It’s fresh,” she said. “It takes something
that’s very old and stale and makes it fiery
and brings it back to life.”
In addition to the proximity of the audi-
ence and the small casts, the show will also
only have one prop: a giant piece of red
“That’s my favorite kind of work,” Chelena
said. “When you strip down your resources
to only the bare basics, suddenly the most
simple thing becomes so beautiful and I
think that’s the most exciting thing for me.”
Junior Abigail Coryell, one of the show’s
actresses, said the challenges of the minimal-
ist play made it extremely fun to work on.
“It’s been really rewarding to try and
understand how Juliet and the student in the
story can become the same story,” she said.
Coryell also said she thinks students in
the audience will be able to relate to the
students in the show.
“The fact that we are students at the
same time — that they are just sneaking off
and doing something they are not supposed
to be doing and they start believing in this
story — it just brings the beauty and the
poetry and the danger of Romeo and Juliet
closer to home,” she said.
Claridad said having two separate casts
has helped show the variation in gender
dynamics more clearly, but each cast also

Google Fiber may

Carolina Creates does Beatles

Google Fiber, a high-speed televi-
sion and Internet service, could soon
be coming to Chapel Hill.
Chapel Hill and Carrboro, along
with Raleigh, Durham, Morrisville,
Cary and Garner, are some of the 34
cities included in Google Fiber’s poten-
tial expansion announced last week.
Google Fiber is currently only
available in three cities across the
country: Kansas City, Mo., Austin,
Texas and Provo, Utah.
“It’s an exciting prospect for our
region and would be a catalyst for
economic development and entrepre-
neurs,” said Chapel Hill Town Council
member Lee Storrow in an email.
Google Fiber’s connection speeds
are 100 times faster than conventional
broadband services, are capable of pro-
viding clear high-definition TV, and can
allow for near instant downloads.
The cities are not approved yet,
and Google said it will be working
with mayors and city officials in the
next few months to check if the cities
have ample infrastructure and the
necessary resources to submit a high
volume of construction permits.
The cities must submit their quali-
fications by May 1, and then Google
plans to announce the final list of cit-
ies that will get Google Fiber by the

The Triangle is getting its very own taste
of Mardi Gras a little early this weekend.
“Hey Pocky Way: A Mardi Gras Primer”
will celebrate the food and music of New
Orleans this Saturday at Trotter Hall in
Durham. Organized by husband-and-wife
team Phil and Heather Cook, “Hey Pocky
Way” ties together the full experience of
New Orleans culture.
“We tried to make sure everyone is get-
ting something really special,” Phil Cook
Heather Cook said those in attendance
will leave with three things: full bellies, big
smiles and tired legs.
Heather Cook, the owner and event plan-
ner behind Shindigs!, and Phil Cook of the
band Megafaun have worked several fun-
draisers together before but wanted to put
together something bigger for the greater
“Phil and I have always loved the culture
that surrounds New Orleans and Mardi
Gras,” Heather said. “It’s a great time of year
for people to start getting out more, gather-
ing together, enjoying delicious things and
dancing to good music.”
The name “Hey Pocky Way” is a reference
to the vernacular language originating from
New Orleans and the Mardi Gras Indians.
“It’s a sort of a language used during the
festivals of Mardi Gras. But it’s also the title
of a famous song by The Meters,” Phil said.
Food will be served by Ricky Moore of
Saltbox Seafood Shack, and Ponysaurus
Brewery will provide locally crafted beers.
“Ricky is one hell of a talented chef. He
does great work all around,” Heather Cook
said. Moore is arranging a low country boil,
a one-pot combination of seafood, sausage,
corn and potatoes.
“We tried to make everything really high
quality,” Phil Cook said.
The event will consist of a live music
performances by Boneslinger, The Bulltown
Strutters, Phil Cook and the Guitarheels
and The Hillside Hornets Drumline.
“We knew we wanted music that
would fit the Mardi Gras season, so Phil
approached the Bulltown Strutters and
Boneslinger right off the bat,” Heather said.
“Then as we’ve gotten closer, his project,
Phil Cook and the Guitarheels, has grown
into something really special.”
All proceeds from “Hey Pocky Way” will
go to benefit the Hillside Hornets Marching
“Marching was central to me as a youth,”
Phil said. “I wanted to give back to some-
thing that has always meant a lot to me.”
“It’s been fun learning more about the
history of the program and the vibrance
of where it is now, only solidifying more
within Phil and I that the Durham commu-
nity should proudly support them,” Heather
Hillside’s band director Christopher
Hayes said the Hillside Hornets are a well-
loved Durham staple, but it has been diffi-
cult getting funding for their program.

overall and wanted to reach out and help
any way that he could,” Hayes said. “This

students enjoy putting on a show. We hope
to enlighten people who want to help and
support the arts.”
Phil Cook said he hopes “Hey Pocky
Way” encourages people to experience local
culture within the context of a New Orleans
“It would be foolish to miss a great
opportunity to open up and let your com-
munity in,” he said.

Diversions Thursday, February 27, 2014 The Daily Tar Heel 5
With the release of the
band’s sixth studio album
Wig Out at Jagbags, Stephen
Malkmus & the Jicks has
opted for short and sweet and
laid down a collection of clev-
erly written pop songs with a
rock guitar punch.
The band formed in
2000, shortly after Stephen
Malkmus’ indie-rock band
Pavement — one of the outfits
at the forefront of early indie
rock — went on hiatus.
The combination of the
subtle quips in the lyrics
and the alternations between
soft ballads and jamming
demonstrations has stamped
a trademark on Malkmus
The band is currently tour-
ing the United States in sup-
port of its latest LP, playing
with the likes of rock outfit
Purling Hiss and the groovy
Dive staff writer Amanda
Hayes spoke with Jicks bass-
ist Joanna Bolme about the
band’s new album and its
progression throughout the
DIVERSIONS: How’s the tour
going so far?
JOANNA BOLME: It’s going
great. We’ve been out for a
couple weeks with a couple
great bands – Tyvek and
We’re meeting up with
Endless Boogie, and Purling
Hiss is finishing up the tour.
The shows have been going
DIVE: When writing music,
what is the process of col-
laboration like for the whole
JB: Steve writes the songs
pretty much but when he bills
them to the band they’re sort
of in different stages of being
Sometimes he’s got the
whole thing mapped out and
sometimes he just came up
with the riff that morning and
he’s like, “Hey let me just play
this for a while and see what
In that case then maybe
we’ ll add some ideas but for
the most part Stephen’s the
DIVE: The band has been
together for about 13 or 14
years and has made six studio
albums together. What has
the band’s progression been
like over the years?
JB: It’s sort of stayed the
same, really. I think we’re
more of a band now. When
we first started we didn’t
even know if we were actually
going to be a real band or if
we were just going to play on
Steve’s record and call it a day.
I think the main progres-
sion is that we’ve become like
a real band, a we’re-all-in-
it-together sort of mentality.
That’s the main thing.
DIVE: How is your new
album, Wig Out at Jagbags,
different from and similar to
your previous work?
JB: It’s similar to Mirror
Traffic in that the songs are
a little bit more short and
pop focused, whereas Real
Emotional Trash was pretty
jamming — although we still
do a bit of that on this record.
I think it’s that the last
record we got a producer,
We employed him to be
the producer of the record
so we sort of let him do his
thing and then this record is
us getting back to producing
COURTESY OF STEPHEN MALKMUS & THE JICKS
Stephen Malkmus & the Jicks plays at Cat’s Cradle on Monday.
Purling Hiss will open the show.
This is kind of more like us
again, I guess.
DIVE: All of your albums
have been a little different
from each other.
I’ve listened to them and
some incorporate more big
band instruments and others
have an elemental and jagged
As a band, do you have
a direction you want your
music to take or a particular
sound you want to accom-
JB: I don’t think we really
plan that far ahead, actually.
We just sort of let the song
sort of dictate what’s going to
Then the brass and horns
and stuff that were on this
record, Steve added them
when he was in Germany.
None of the rest of us even
knew that it was going to
happen so the brass was a
complete surprise to the rest
of the band.
It was a fun surprise but
we didn’t really know it was
going to happen. I think Steve
just got an idea and went

Bolme of the
Local musician Jenks
Miller’s latest project appears
under the guise of Horseback,
an ethereal mix of metal and
The record begins with
static and screeches in
“Passing Through,” before
picking up a persistent drum
patter and Miller’s haunting
voice. The track meanders,
coming and going, much like
the record as a whole.
The title track “Piedmont
Apocrypha” arrives next
with repetitive electric gui-
tar strums and background
feedback. Varied guitar-play,
a harmonica and even bells
come in, creating a moody
and solemn number that
explodes for a rousing finish.
The record finishes strong
with “Chanting Out the Low
Shadow,” a 17-minute epic
that pulses and throbs with
drums and disturbing elec-
tronics throughout, the most
exciting stretch of the album.
Apocrypha is steady, no song
really distinguishes itself
from the next. Nonetheless,
Horseback’s latest is still
a solid collection of eerie
instrumentals and sounds.
— Mac Gushanas
More than a decade after
Owls’ last release, the band
has reunited on Two, an
album drowned in stale ‘90s
vibes and repetitive, head-
“Why Oh Why” couples
punchy guitars with dazed
mentions of ChapStick, horo-
scopes and waiters with bad
breath. The product is a solid
three and a half minutes of
whiney, teenage garage rock
for the middle-aged, followed
by the almost indistinguish-
able “This Must Be How,”
where Kinsella strains his
vocals to no avail.
Early guitar tapping on
“It Collects Itself ” suggests
a diversion from the album’s
flat plane, but Kinsella then
directs the track’s fleeting
energy to frantic shouting.
Failing to do more than
briefly interrupt the rest of
the song’s dullness, the noise
soon transitions into strange,
animal-like chanting as the
Completely devoid of
hooks and choking on its own
monotony, the album leaves
little desire for more. Two
should only be taken in small
doses, or better yet, not at all.

The town has began efforts
to improve its lengthy permit-
ting application process.
Matt Sullivan, interim
executive director of plan-
ning and sustainability for the
town of Chapel Hill, said the
process has changed signifi-
cantly in the past six months.
He said they combined the
building and zoning permits
into one application that is
reviewed in collaborative
teams rather than different
Tollen said he has no issues
with permitting because it pro-
tects the public, but people can
be intimidated by the length
and price of the town’s process.
Red tape sometimes leads
to people attempting a reno-
vation without a permit.
“Most people who have
done renovations illegally
will get caught when they sell
their home,” he said. “Most of
the time, buyers or brokers
will make the seller go back
and get a permit.”
He said codes can change on
an annual basis, so a renova-
tion began this year could have
violations when it’s completed.
Goldman said the real-
tors association discussed
organizing a task force to talk
with the town and its inspec-
tions department to make
the entire permitting process
“The town should have a
time frame of amnesty to reach
out to reconcile with people
who renovated without a per-
mit,” Goldman said. “Properties
would then be permitted, and
the town would have a more
accurate tax record.”

“I don’t know what it is
about us, but they really hate
us.” said Paige, who finished
with a career-high 35 points.
“It feels so good for them to
have the game in their hands
and for us to show resilience
and come take it from (them).”
The win gave UNC (21-7,
11-4 ACC) its first 10-game
ACC win streak since 2008-
09, a milestone that also
came against N.C. State (17-
11, 7-8 ACC) that season.
For more than two hours,
Warren and Paige engaged in
a captivating battle. The pair
traded baskets in the over-
time period, each seeming to
one-up the other with each
ensuing position. By the end
of overtime, Paige and Warren
accounted for 19 of 27 points
scored in the extra time.
“I don’t know if I’ve seen
much where two guys are
going back and forth at each
other like that,” said coach Roy
Williams, who is 27-2 against
N.C. State in his career. “I
mean, T.J. has such a tremen-
dous ability. He scores on little
guys, he scores on big guys, it
doesn’t make any difference.”
As has become habit this
season, Paige clicked into a
different gear after halftime.
After only scoring four points
in the first 20 minutes Paige
shifted into his highest gear
and poured in 31 points in the
final 25 minutes. He drained
seven 3-pointers — the most
of any UNC player since Will
Graves in the 2010 NIT finals.
“When we see this, it’s not
a big surprise to us,” said J.P.
Tokoto, who had 16 points.
“We’re very happy for him, but
at the same time we know what
he’s capable of, so he’s someone
we can definitely lean on down
The Tar Heels followed
Paige’s lead and turned their
play around after a dismal
first half. After committing
11 turnovers in the first half
— including one with one
second left before halftime
— UNC only committed one
more for the rest of the game.
After the game, Williams
said he felt like he and his
team were escaping with a
win. Fortunately for Williams,
he’s got the best escape art-
ist on his roster — a man
who can battle on the hard-
wood and transform a half
of missed chances and poor
play into a win that’s already
cemented itself in rivalry lore.
“Marcus Paige isn’t going
to win many fights,” Williams
said. “I’d hate to see him in
a fight. But, by golly, I’d love
to have him in my foxhole. I
want tough people, and he’s
as tough of a little sucker as
I’ve ever seen.”

Tokoto sets stage for Paige
By Jonathan LaMantia
RALEIGH — Before North
Carolina guard Marcus Paige
could pull the curtain closed on
T.J. Warren’s convincing audi-
tion for ACC Player of the Year,
J.P. Tokoto was there to set up
up the lighting just right for
Paige’s spectacular finish.
But Tokoto nearly missed
the grand finale.
Tokoto, who scored 16
points in No. 19 UNC’s 85-84
win, spent the last several min-
utes of overtime in the locker
room with cramping in his leg
and wrist, which he injured on
one of his two first-half dunks.
He returned to the floor just
in time to see Warren’s missed
free throw with seven seconds
left in overtime — and to
watch Paige nearly incite a riot
among the Raleigh crowd with
a game-winning layup.
Paige said Tokoto, who was
prepared to return for a sec-
ond overtime, was crucial to
helping him score.
“When he’s aggressive and
attacking the basket we’re a
better offensive team,” Paige
said. “We don’t have to rely on
me as much to take contested
jump shots or James Michael
(McAdoo) to force things in
In the first half, Tokoto
led UNC with eight points.
When Paige nearly jumped
over the scorer’s table to save
a loose ball with five minutes
left in the first half, Tokoto
was there to throw down
one of his signature dunks,
and breathe life into a reel-
ing UNC team, cutting N.C.
State’s lead from 11 to nine.
“I think it was huge for us,”
said McAdoo, whose 2-for-11
effort left a void for Tokoto.
“Especially just to have a guy
like him that’s so versatile and
can do things such as make
those emphatic dunks kind
of provides energy for us,
especially in a game like today
when we’re on the road, not
many people are cheering for
us, and we were kind of at a
point in the game where we
didn’t really have much energy.”
Tokoto was certainly versa-
tile, adding 10 rebounds and
five assists to his 16 points. The
forward assisted Paige on three
second-half 3-pointers, includ-
ing one with 5:47 left to give
UNC a 56-55 lead.
N.C. State’s Jordan
Vandenberg wrestled back an
N.C. State lead with a thunder-
ous put-back dunk, but Tokoto
followed with two baskets to
give UNC a late 3-point lead.
On the second of the two,
Tokoto came to Paige’s aid

He missed another layup in

wouldn’t squander his effort.
“We were struggling as a

“Then, Marcus showed up.”

QUOTE OF THE DAY
FEATURED ONLINE READER COMMENT
Carolina Fever mes-
sage was offensive
TO THE EDITOR:
I tried my best not to
be offended — I really
did. But as I scanned
this week’s email updates
from Carolina Fever, I just
couldn’t help it. Referring
to the leader of the Catholic
Church as “Big Papa”?
Saying that you “can’t trust
anyone who is elected by a
fireplace,” but that “sorting
hats are a viable form of
election”? Not funny.
Now, don’t get me wrong
— as a Tar Heel, I’ll be the
first to say that I hope we
beat Notre Dame in every
sport. As a Catholic, how-
ever, I’ll also be the first to
tell you that making jokes
about Pope Francis and
poking fun at a 2000-year-
old faith tradition is not
OK. Yes, Notre Dame is a
Catholic school, but that is
not the reason we should
root against them.
I get it. We’re in the South,
where Catholics are certainly
in the minority. To be hon-
est, some of the traditions
of the church might seem a
little strange to those who
aren’t familiar with the faith.
But for a place like UNC,
which claims to tolerate and
respect all perspectives, it
is disappointing to see such
remarks being made with-
out consideration for those
whose faith is just as impor-
tant (if not more important)
to them as the outcome of a

TO THE EDITOR:
This week, many Tar
Heels lament the end of the
2014 Olympic Games. For
16 days, we cheered for our
fellow Americans and were
thrilled by great moments
such as the men’s hockey
team’s shootout victory over
Russia and the American
sweep of the ski slopestyle
medals. I would like to
remind us all that a new
team of American olympians
will be competing in Sochi
this March, and that they too
are deserving of our cheers.
The 2014 U.S. Paralympic
Team will compete in the
upcoming Sochi 2014
Paralympic Winter Games
from March 7 through
March 16. The 74-member
team is sure to impress, as
it includes 32 returning
paralympians who have
won a combined total of 50
paralympic medals. Many of
the team’s top athletes are
veterans who were disabled
defending our country.
These games will receive
an unprecedented 50 hours
of television coverage on
NBC and NBCSN, affording
us plenty of opportunities
to watch America compete
in alpine skiing, biathlon,
cross-country skiing, sled
hockey and wheelchair curl-
ing. As UNC students pride

nce upon a 2007,
Kanye West and 50
Cent had beef.
Here’s what went down:
Fiddy and Ye were preparing
to drop new albums on the
same day in September. In the
meantime, their rap-star egos
were growing restlessly swol-
50 Cent was itching to sell
records or die trying, so he
grabbed the media’s mic and
said if Kanye’s record sold
more copies than his, he would
straight-up retire from rap.
50’s claim was bold, and what
ensued was a hip-hop feud fit
for AP U.S. History textbooks.
50 Cent and Kanye landed
their faces on the cover of
Rolling Stone, and an ungodly
amount of trash talking went
down. Pasty suburban rap fans
across America were dying to
know the answer to Rolling

compared to 50 Cent’s 691,000
units in the albums’ debut

Of course not. 50 and Kanye
took a look at the sales num-
bers, shrugged and started
counting their respective mil-
lions. In 2012, 50 Cent even
called the feud a publicity
So why did 50 Cent and

TO THE EDITOR:
I am extremely shocked
and disappointed with how
the media and other insti-
tutions are covering Mary
Willingham’s research about
literacy among student-
athletes. Like many others, I
find parts of her research to
be unripe, but I believe that
bashing her and undermin-
ing her hard work is contrib-
uting nothing to the actual
problem. While there may
be faults and mistakes in her
research, let us not lose focus
on the actual problem and
the purpose of her research.
I respect Willingham for
her sacrifices taken to better
our community and increase
literacy among students.
Instead of referring to her
in such negative light, she
should be referred to as a
change maker. What she is
doing is bettering our world
today and for generations to
come. We often lose sight of
our goals when something
unexpected occurs. I hope
that Willingham and UNC
will bounce back from this
minor setback and remem-
ber that the fight to ensure
that student-athletes read on
an acceptable grade level is
not over. We will better our
fight if we quit doing imma-
ture things like pointing fin-
gers and name calling.
We must unite and push
through this issue together.
Student-athletes have been
cheated of a great education
for a while, but now is the
time to give them what they
deserve — superb athletics
and a superb education.

TO THE EDITOR:
The intentions behind the
body-positive images circu-
lating this week to promote
eating disorder awareness
are noble. However, many
of the images themselves
perpetuate attitudes toward
bodies that make people,
especially women, vulnerable
to negative body image and
disordered eating habits.
The cultivation of body-
positive attitudes is not
sufficient to lessen the
prevalence of eating disor-
ders, which are frequently
underpinned by a desire
for control that manifests
itself as a preoccupation
with one’s body. We should
take the conversation about
eating disorders further —
why do we often conflate
a body’s beauty with its
worth? Instead, let’s inter-
rogate our daily experiences
of unwanted sexualization
and body monitoring.

The Chapel Hill Police
Department could hold a

Many of those that would

unable to make the trip to

Simply put, the more

dents, the better.
At Stanford University,
students can even receive
course credit for complet-
ing their version of the
academy, which is some-
thing that UNC would do
well to look into.
The idea of cozying up to
police isn’t always appeal-
ing to college students, but
any way to incentivize this
mutually beneficial experi-
ence would help more stu-
dents take part.

stored coal ash to lined

It’s true that coal ash
ponds are not ideal. Even
without these spills, they
still leach harmful chemi-
cals, including arsenic,
selenium and lead into
the ground and bodies of
water they border.
Even the approved dis-
charge from these storage
facilities can be devastating
to the environment. After
four years of discharging
ash into the Belews Lake in
the 1970s, Duke had man-
aged to kill all but three
species of fish in the lake.
Though these ponds
are obviously very danger-

does necessarily mean that
landfills are the solution.
These dry storage
options pose a threat to air
pollution. The ash is often

people who live nearby to
