A collection of 32 retired faculty
members say UNC’s administration
has locked itself in a “self-defeating
course” in its response to the aca-
demic scandal.
In a joint letter, the retired profes-
sors criticized the University’s han-
dling of the scandal and called for cur-
rent faculty to become more involved
so current issues do not continue.
“The recent presentation to the
trustees by several accomplished
student-athletes, whose work as stu-
dents has not been impugned, was
one more embarrassing exercise in
avoiding the heart of the issue,” the
letter said.
Former history professor Michael
Hunt, who spearheaded the cam-
paign with former interim dean of
the College of Arts and Sciences,
Madeline Levine, at a lunch meeting
with other retired faculty, did not
sugarcoat his answer when asked
about what current faculty should do.
“What they can do is called gover-
nance,” he said.
Chancellor Carol Folt responded
to the letter with one of her own, say-
ing there has been healthy involve-
ment from the faculty in resolving
the issues. She said more than 100
faculty serve on committees that are
working on these initiatives.
“I have seen a faculty and admin-
istration willing to accept scrutiny,
seek answers and devote time and
energy toward meaningful change,”
Folt said. “The progress we are mak-
ing today is very real.”
Richard Kohn, a former history
professor, also said the effort by the
faculty has not been up to par.
“The most disappointing thing
is that they have done, as a group,
almost nothing,” Kohn said. “Except
sense of worldliness to students.
“He would be the coach, tutor,
grandfather, whatever you want to
call it for a student,” Cole said. “He’d
say, ‘Hey, why don’t you try to get an
internship at X and why don’t you
write a paper about X.’
“Students loved him.”
Diversity can be found in recesses
of Stone’s life — whether it was help-
ing former felons find work or having
lunch with students, said Byars, who
directs the Chuck Stone Program for
Diversity in Education and Media

“He would talk about all those
great civil rights figures of his time
and how (students) should do
something with (their) life,” he said.

Before establishing his journalism
career as an anchor at news organi-
zations such as ABC News, prospec-
tive student Rob Nelson wasn’t sure
if UNC was the right school for him.
So his father wrote to UNC jour-
nalism professor Chuck Stone, asking
for his advice on making the trek from
New Jersey to Chapel Hill for college.
Stone didn’t just write back to
Nelson. He took him on a tour of the
campus in his convertible, telling
him about how wonderful UNC was.
Stone didn’t stop there.
“Professor Stone person-
ally mailed me my application to
Carolina with a note about what a
great school it was,” he said. “I will
never forget getting a FedEx pack-
age with a note from Chuck Stone.”
Stone, a retired UNC journalism
professor, editor of major black news-
papers during the civil rights move-
ment and author, died Sunday at 89.
He legacy extends far beyond the
FedEx package that exemplified
mentorship to Nelson.
There’s his place in the N.C.
Journalism Hall of Fame, his
Congressional Gold Medal from
serving with Tuskegee airmen dur-
ing World War II and the stories he
wrote, warranting two Pulitzer Prize
Much of his legacy lies in the
more diverse newsrooms he cre-
ated through his work both in the
classroom and outside of it as a
co-founder and the first president

“There are many who believe that
without Chuck Stone there would be

president of the association. Stone

A letter argues the current
faculty is complacent
in ongoing scandals.
By Jane Wester
Staff Writer
In 1974, Jacquelyn Dowd Hall sat alone in a
room with a typewriter and a reel-to-reel tape
recorder, facing skepticism from the history
department and the University as she tried to
start an oral history program on campus.
On Friday, the Southern Oral History Program
celebrated its collection of 5,300 interviews made
over the course of 40 years with an exhibit, per-
formances and birthday cake in Wilson Library.
Hall’s successor, current program director
Malinda Lowery, said the program’s regional
focus was intended to complement the already
existing Southern Historical Collection.
Lowery praised the depth and diversity of
SOHP’s collections, which cover southern cul-
ture and politics as well as issues surrounding
race, gender, labor and social movements.
“Basically, if you want to know anything about
the South, particularly in the 20th century and
often before the 20th century, you can find out
about it in the SOHP’s collections,” she said.

The decision for the sanction, of course, stems from Putin’s

ASG holds last meeting of 2013-14
By Madeline Will
State & National Editor
When N.C. State University
Student Body President Alex
Parker was sworn in this week-
end as next year’s president of
the UNC-system Association
of Student Governments, he
knew the difficulty of the task
ahead of him.
This year, and in years
past, the association has been
criticized for inefficiency and
wasting student funds — it’s
funded by an annual $1 stu-
dent fee. In the fall, UNC-CH
students only narrowly voted
to stay in the association.
ASG has consistently been
trying to reform itself.
“ASG’s trying to make
amends, it’s trying to get itself
together,” Parker said. “I’m
hoping (critics) will give us
one year ... (to) put behind
the past, move forward. I
think we deserve that chance.”
It’ll be a critical year for the
association to see if it can flour-
ish or not, he said.
Outgoing ASG President
Robert Nunnery said his year

Town finds
12 tenants in
North Street
By Joey DeVito
Staff Writer
Two local property owners
were fined about $60,000 by
the town of Chapel Hill after
the town found 12 people
were living at a property at
135 North St.
The town’s occupancy
rule, which was added to the
town’s land use management
ordinance in 2003, states that
no more than four unrelated
people can live in one resi-
dential house.
The owners of the prop-
erty at 135 North St., James
Bulbrook and Whitney Long,
were first fined $23,400 for
breaking that law in May
2013, according to town
Bulbrook and Long haven’t
paid the fine, town docu-
ments indicate. Neither could
be reached for comment and
current tenants in the home
declined to comment.
Mark Patmore, the
owner of Mercia Residential
Properties, said the town
conducted a second inspec-
tion this year and found the
violations persisted, fining the
owners about $60,000.
If there are more than five
unrelated people living in
a house, then it needs to be
built to state commercial fire
codes, which include install-
ing sprinkler systems and fire
escapes, among other require-
ments, Patmore said.
The North Street property
was not built to those codes,
so it was not equipped to
house that many people.
The town’s Inspections
Department received com-
plaints about the amount
of people living in the
house from other residents
in November 2012, which

as it is professionally.
“‘Overwhelming,’ is what we
decided the word was,” she said
Saturday, after her selection as the

But if Surane was overwhelmed,
it wasn’t for long — the first thing

DTH’s editor-in-chief for 2006-07,
was a member of the selection com-
mittee. Schwartz said Surane’s can-
didate platform, which emphasizes
the newspaper’s online presence and
investigative work, made him confi-
dent in her ability to lead.
“The ideas that she’s articulated,
they remind me of a Daily Tar Heel
that I worked at,” Schwartz said.
“And I guess the best compliment
I could give her is I would want to
work in a newsroom that she’s in
charge of.”
Surane’s platform calls for
instituting an investigations and
special projects team, which would
handle long term stories and con-

ASG, which met at Western
Carolina University, passed
its budget for next year. The
group voted to shave about
$200 from each of the execu-
tive officers’ stipends — with
the exception of the president
and senior vice president —
and put the money towards
student advocacy, as well as
eliminate three executive offi-
cer positions.
That decision was made at a
meeting that only about half of
the executive officers attended.
“I think it’s unacceptable —
we’re paying them for a job and
they’re not there,” said UNC-
CH’s delegate Connor Brady.
Brady said he remains dis-
appointed in the group’s advo-
cacy efforts and accountability.
But he said he’s optimistic
about the reforms, and Parker

President Leigh Whittaker’s
ability to implement them.

“We always have to keep our-
selves in check.”
Next year, Parker said he
will focus on implement “soft
reforms” that change the cul-
ture of ASG.
Nunnery said one of ASG’s
biggest accomplishments this
year has been garnering public
exposure for its stance on cer-
tain issues, like voting rights.
“It might take a while to get
to what our position was, but
when we made it, it was very
impactful public relations-
wise,” he said. “It might not
have influenced the outcome,
but ASG didn’t let stuff go
down the pipeline without let-
ting our opinion be known.”

“It has a reputation — people know
about it,” she said.
The event featured three egg hunts,
each of which lasted about 15 minutes.
The hunts were broken up by age
The plastic eggs were laid out in
fields for children to pick up. Overall,
more than 25,000 eggs were used.
Stibich said Chapel Hill’s Parks and
Recreation department collaborates
with the Carrboro and Orange County
departments to hold the egg hunt. Every
three years it is held in Chapel Hill.
“So now it’s our year,” she said. “It’s
one of the few events we collaborate on
with the other departments.”
Stibich said the eggs were ordered
from Sunny Bunny, a company known
for providing employment to adults
with disabilities. All three town
departments purchase the eggs.
“Everyone pitches in and buys the
eggs and prizes,” she said.
Karina Goco, an eighth-grade stu-
dent at McDougle Middle School, and
Jessika Patel, a ninth-grade student at
Chapel Hill High School, worked as
volunteers at the egg hunt through the
Chapel Hill Youth Council.
They said part of their duties
involved setting up for the event.
“We had to put out some of the eggs
on the field,” Goco said.
Goco and Patel said they were also
tasked with helping supervise the egg
hunts to make sure everything went
according to plan.
Both volunteers said they enjoyed

Chancellor’s response
was disappointing
I am one of the retired
faculty members who
signed the recent statement
deploring the present facul-
ty’s silence about the ques-
tions raised by our continu-
ing scandals, and I must
say that I was disappointed
by Chancellor Carol Folt’s
The chancellor appar-
ently has her talking points
and is sticking to them. The
News & Observer quotes
her as saying that our state-
ment “appears to ignore the
efforts of many deeply com-
mitted faculty, and the real
progress in terms of reforms
and additional oversight
that Carolina has made in
just the last few years.” It is
true that many of us have
been told (in my case, several
times) that some faculty
members are helping to put
safeguards in place to pre-
vent future embarrassments,
and that’s a good and needed
thing. Our statement did
ignore those efforts, though,
because it was talking about
something else. It would be
nice if someone responded to
what we actually said.
Obviously, retired faculty
members are not privy to
anything that is being done
out of public view, but at
least from the outside it
appears that many ques-
tions have been begged. No
one seems to be seriously
asking how we got in this
mess in the first place. Our
statement asked, “How did
a single faculty member in a
single department so grossly
violate fundamental profes-
sional standards for so long?
In what context did this
violation occur, and how
widely in other departments
might similar breaking or
bending the rules have hap-
pened? To what degree and
how detrimentally have ath-
letes in revenue sports been
exploited, and in what ways
have they been neglected
or betrayed as students?”
And, as professor Madeline
Levine wrote in January to
the chancellor and provost,
“There are many other
questions. You know what
they are.”
Although the administra-
tion and Board of Trustees
would apparently prefer that
these questions not be asked
and the Faculty Council
doesn’t seem to be interested
in asking them, we appealed
to those who actually teach
undergraduates, especially
the Arts and Sciences faculty,
to seek answers and publi-

out eventually. Wouldn’t it be

EDITORIAL CARTOON By Nate Beeler, The Columbus Dispatch
A song
of Putin
ith its armies of fro-
zen zombies, knights
in armor and
dragons, we might think that
Westeros is a far cry from plan-
et Earth in the 21st Century.
But the dynamics of power
struggle that drive much of the
imaginary plot of “Game of
Thrones” are grounded in very
real dynamics of international
relations that we can observe in
our own world. In Westeros, we
can see events unfolding that
reflect conceptions of interna-
tional relations theory that have
been debated for centuries.
For instance, the realist
school of thought in interna-
tional relations sees states as
locked in a permanent struggle
for power and security.
Realists see states in a con-
stant competition, a zero-sum
game in which a gain for one
state almost always represents
a loss for a rival. For realists,
there are no permanent rules
of international order and no
permanent alliances — states
do what they can to enhance
their power regardless of the
international environment.
Sound familiar? It should,
because this is how Tywin
Lannister sees the world. Tywin
is the epitome of a cold, calculat-
ing realist. He shrewdly surveys
his environment and decides
what to do with the sole objec-
tive of keeping his family on
the Iron Throne and safeguard-
ing their power. Tywin, like
all realists, does not set much
importance by rules or norms.
When a rule — like the laws of
dynastic succession — suits him,
he uses it. When a rule — like
the ancient prohibition against
killing wedding guests — gets in
his way, he ignores it.
But we do not have to look
to Westeros to find leaders act-
ing as realists. Vladimir Putin’s
recent annexation of Crimea
was a textbook realist power
play — he ignored internation-
al norms in order to enhance
Russia’s power, calculating
that the gains to be had would
outweigh the possible back-
lash. Tywin Lannister would
have been proud.
Generally, characters in
“Game of Thrones” who try
to break the realist paradigm
do not fare so well. Ned Stark
believed in rules and moral-
ity, and he didn’t even make it
through the first season.
We do see room for moral-
ity, though, in the actions of
Daenerys Targaryen, who
has augmented her power by
building a loyal army from the
slaves that she freed. Daenerys
might be trying to make herself
into what international rela-
tions scholar G.J. Ikenberry
would call a “liberal leviathan.”
Ikenberry argues that the U.S.
is a liberal leviathan, as it has
augmented its own power by
enforcing a liberal world order
that makes the world a bet-
ter place while also serving
U.S. interests. If Daenerys can
build on her moral successes to
reclaim the Iron Throne, she
could yet prove that it does not
take a realist to win the Game
of Thrones.
While we might never have
to face a White Walker or
fight with a sword, the world
of Westeros is not as different
from ours as we might think.
People might have only been
watching “Game of Thrones”
on HBO for four years, but we
have been watching a Game of
Thrones play out in real life for
all of history.

University Mall, and this
what happens when you
have greedy developers and
management who want to
bring into the mall a certain
type of upper class clientele
to get more money in their
pocket to which they have
no sympathy for anyone but
themselves. It is amazing
that University Mall these
days is virtually a ghost mall
with only two of its original
stores that are still standing,
but are facing certain doom.
Roses and Radio Shack have
been the only two tenants
at University Mall since
its opening in 1973. Gone
are Dillard’s, Kerr Drugs,
Cameron’s and other stores
that are being replaced with
upscale speciality stores and
a 13-screen luxury movie
theater. Roses was the only
discount store that catered to
items that were at reasonable
cost. The only place where
the average citizen can shop
and get bargain deals each
week. You won’t find that
anywhere else. Once this
store closes, the only two
tenants that still generate
business will be A Southern
Season, K&W Cafeteria (a
Chapel Hill landmark) and
the local Harris Teeter. No
wonder clientele will be
staying away in droves once
Roses close its doors forever
after more than 41 years of
business in Chapel Hill.

A natural boost to
mental health
I propose a fun and
natural strategy that could
dramatically improve the
mental health of many
students on campus. We
need to acknowledge each
other as human beings more
explicitly and often. This
might sound strange, but
think back to your last walk
through campus — there are
very few smiles, many down-
turned heads, and lots of
seemingly unhappy people.
However, I don’t think very
many of us are actually
unhappy; we might just not
feel comfortable expressing
it openly. We might also be
under pressure from assess-
ments and studies. However,
while these tensions are
normal and healthy, the
unneeded and detrimental
social tension and interper-
sonal division have a ready
antidote. I challenge you
to take on a new mindset
during your daily life on
campus. Simply meet a few
passers-by with a friendly
smile and head nod. This
might sound small, but this
mutual acknowledgement
of humanity and scholar-
ship will make you feel good.
When my mom traveled to
North Carolina from New
York in the 1980s for gradu-
ate studies, she mentioned
that her anxiety and stress
level reduced considerably
just because she felt a strong
sense of campus unity and
friendliness. Thus, a simple
head nod and smile to a fel-
low student could lead the
University’s atmosphere to
be more positive and pro-
Robert Alfredson ’17
hapel Hill has
experienced a rash
of accidents involv-
ing pedestrians in recent
months. While none of
these accidents occurred on
campus, they should still
serve as a reminder to any-
one to control their speed
when driving through areas
that are heavily populated
by students.
Last week the
Department of Public
Safety took part in the
statewide “No Need to
Speed” initiative. This
involved increasing traffic
stops and posting signage
about speed limits. While
this is an excellent move, it
Curb speeding
will likely provide only an
ephemeral effect on traffic
speed, as drivers will most
likely develop heavy feet
once again in the absence
of the initiative.
Therefore, in addition
to the excellent service
provided by the crossing
guards on South Road,
UNC should look to make
changes that would have
more long-term effects.
One simple solution
would be to increase the
number of signs stating
the speed limit on campus.
Studies have shown that
these have little influence
in areas with high speeds,
but do show some effects
on traffic speed in areas
that have slower traffic.
Furthermore, stud-
ies have also shown that
variable speed limit signs
have a significant impact
on speeds. These signs
have digital displays that
can change according to
the time of day or situ-
ation of the roads. This
would require a significant
amount of funding, but
could have a large payoff.
A more radical option
would be to mimic the
University of Virginia’s use
of gates to only allow cer-
tain cars on campus during
the daytime. While this
would not work on a heav-
ily used street such as South
Road, it could possibly be
implemented on roads such
as Cameron Avenue.
There is no doubt the
University has done excel-
lent work to promote traf-
fic safety, but speeding is
a continual problem that
needs constant attention.
A statewide
initiative should
see follow through.
ast Thursday, a layer
of smoke hung in
the air, prompting
many to express fears that
there was a fire either on
or somewhere near UNC.
While the culprit turned
out to be a controlled burn
in the woods near Jordan
Lake, it would have been
extremely helpful for the
Department of Public
Safety to send out an Alert
Carolina to let the campus
know the cause.
The North Carolina
Wildlife Resources com-
mission conducted a
controlled burn of 218
acres around Jordan Lake
to improve the wildlife
More than a tweet
habitat and to prevent
future wildfires. While
this is a common practice,
when campus is filled with
smoke without notice, it
can prompt fears of an
immediate threat.
Unfortunately, at the
same time the smoke was
coming onto UNC’s cam-
pus, fire alarms were going
off in multiple buildings,
which only exacerbated
concerns that something
serious was occurring.
While DPS stated that this
was an unfortunate coinci-
dence, it should illustrate
the need to communicate
with the UNC community.
In this case, DPS should
have utilized Alert Carolina
to let the UNC community
know that everything was
fine instead of just sending
out a tweet. Granted, Alert
Carolina cannot be used
for every misunderstand-
ing on campus or its pur-
pose would be defeated.
However, Alert Carolina
was designed to communi-
cate about situations that
affect the safety and health
of the UNC community.
The smoke from the
fire not only caused many
to fear something seri-
ous had happened, but
it could have had health
ramifications for those
suffering from asthma
or who are sensitive to
smoke. Had DPS sent out
an Alert Carolina to let
people know the reason
smoke could be seen in the
area, it would have allevi-
ated most concerns, and it
would have enabled those
with health problems to
take precautions.
Alert Carolina
should announce
controlled burns.
he time has come
for North Carolina
lawmakers to raise
the age at which the state
begins treating criminal
offenders as adults.
Currently, N.C. and New
York are the only states that
prosecute 16- and 17-year-
olds as adults in their crimi-
nal justice systems.
Youth who go through
adult systems are more
often rearrested, convict-
ed, incarcerated and have
their probation revoked
at higher rates than other
adult offenders. Many
proponents of the policy
change say it will save
millions for taxpayers by
Leave kids out of prison
reducing recidivism and
the costs associated with
convicting and housing
these offenders.
But by far the most
pressing and compel-
ling reason is that North
Carolina should no longer
take responsibility for put-
ting 16- and 17-year-olds
at risk of sexual assault in
adult jails or prisons.
The N.C. American Civil
Liberties Union sent let-
ters Wendesday to sheriff ’s
departments that failed to
produce documents indi-
cating whether they comply
with the federal Prison
Rape Elimination Act,
which mandates jails and
detention centers house 16-
and 17-year-olds separately
from the rest of the adult
Two bills from the
2011-12 session of the
General Assembly would
raise the age for such
offenders; House Bill
632 and Senate Bill 506,
which have garnered
bipartisan support.
Efforts to make this
change have failed time and
again, largely due to bud-
getary concerns, asserting
that simply making 16- and
17-year-olds culpable in
juvenile courts would add
greater caseloads for juve-
nile caseworkers.
While such ideology is
great for campaign plat-
forms or economic mea-
sures, it renders legislators
ineffective when resolutions
are needed to protect our
state youth. North Carolina
must put aside such con-
cerns for fiscal responsibil-
ity in this same spirit.
Raising the juvenile
age limit will keep
youth safe.

Broadway-quality vocals, laughs boost ‘Avenue Q’

The show, which sold out
both Friday and Saturday,
used “Avenue Q’s” witty
numbers, strong vocals and a
simple set to aggrandize and

Saturday’s show opened
with a projected screen,
depicting Avenue Q, a fic-

voices were very distinct,
clear and obviously differ-

by keeping Trekkie’s voice
deep and throaty, while the

Though the produc-
tion critiqued most issues
through humor, it also suc-
cessfully drew attention to
more serious issues, such
as Rod’s struggle with com-
ing out as homosexual. Will
Hawkins not only projected
the character’s emotion
through his voice — which
could go from quiet and
endearing to a high-pitched,
laughter-inducing scream
— but also used his facial
expressions so that he and
the puppet he controlled
blended seamlessly as one
Blayne Telling, who nar-
rated Lucy the Slut, added
a dose of harlot humor with
seductive movements and a
low, sultry, one-night-stand
worthy voice. Her singing
voice was equally as velvety,
but at times a little hard
to understand when com-
bined with music from the
live band. Other perform-
ers’ voices also struggled to
compete with the band, but
not often enough to take

matter-of-fact mannerisms,

ing subjects whose stories
might not otherwise be heard,
Lowery said.
“History is very difficult,
because the folks who are
writing things down are often
not the ones who are the most
deeply affected or the ones who
are marginalized in society, but
the ones who have the most
power in society,” she said.
“What oral history helps us
do is gather the voices of those
who are not otherwise heard as
part of the historical record.”
Hall said she loves that the
program has remained loyal
to its core mission while still
adopting exciting new ideas.
“This exhibit and the talks
and the walking tour all are
things done and created, a
lot of them, by students who
have just stepped in and
made this program their own
and put their own stamp on
it,” she said. “They’re doing
things, and doing things in
ways that I didn’t do, didn’t
know to do, didn’t know how
to do — it’s great.”
One project undertaken by
the SOHP is the Long Civil
Rights Movement, an archive
that includes hundreds of inter-
views about the movement.
“Because of the interests
of scholars not just at UNC
but elsewhere in the U.S.
about understanding the true
timeline of the Civil Rights
Movement, SOHP launched
an effort in the early ‘90s to
capture as many different
voices as possible from as
many different places in the
South and in the United States
that have experienced the Civil
Rights Movement in one way
or another,” Lowery said.
The broad scope of the pro-
gram today contrasts sharply
with Hall’s recollection of the
early days of the program,
when she faced unconvinced
colleagues and had to work
without staff until she found
grant money to hire graduate
research assistants.
“We had to overcome that
little by little,” she said. “And I
think we did it by force of just
doing good work.”
Howard Lee, who became
Chapel Hill’s first black mayor
in 1969, has been interviewed
by SOHP several times, includ-
ing about the 1968 strike by
UNC dining hall employees.
Lee said he thinks oral his-
tories are a great way to under-
stand history through the per-
spective of those who lived it.
“The person years from now,
listening to what was said,
would be able to have some
sense of being at that place,
based on how the person is
telling the story and describing
the experience,” he said.
“(Oral history) captures
people, it captures their feel-
ings, it captures their expres-
sions, and it makes them
come alive in the minds of the
listener in years to come.”
Lowery said interviews
conducted by undergradu-
ate and graduate students,
who can advance their own
research interests as they take
classes in oral history, are
central to SOHP’s collections.
“Actually doing interviews,
just sitting down and talking
to someone about their life
for an hour, an hour and a
half, is pretty awesome,” said
senior Turner Henderson, an
SOHP intern this semester.
Junior Katie Crook,
another SOHP intern, said
she enjoys the personal con-
nections she creates while
conducting interviews.
“There are a lot of things
that people have told me that
are really sensitive and really
emotional, and it’s humbling
that they trust you enough to
tell you those things and open
up to a complete stranger.”

“(Helping people) made him

Though Nelson never saw
firsthand Stone’s impact in
a classroom, his impression
of him lasted throughout his
time at UNC — from his wide
smile and even wider vocabu-
lary to the cologne he wore
that signaled he had been in
the room, even an hour later.
“There is no one who
walked in that J-school who
did not know who Chuck

After speaking with current
faculty members, Levine said
she is worried that faculty will
not speak up due to a hush-
hush atmosphere on campus.
“There is a concern that
there is just such a sense of
despair over the faculty that
they have been quiet, or miss-
ing in action,” Levine said.
Hunt spoke about the top-
down organizational struc-
ture of the University being
foreign to students.
“There is a governance issue,
and it needs to be brought to
the foreground,” Hunt said.
Hunt lamented the lack of
information the University
has released to the public.
“What’s most frustrating
right now is the emphasis
on PR,” Hunt said. “There
are a set of questions that
we spelled out, and they are
very briefly put but I think
they are the central ques-
tions. What happened? And
we really don’t have good
answers even now, and I
think the administration
spends too much time trying
to avoid those questions.”
Levine agrees with Hunt,
adding that there is a lot
of skepticism that Julius
Nyang’oro was the only
one involved in academic
misconduct in the former
Department of African and
Afro-American Studies.
“There still hasn’t been full
disclosure of what happened
and what the consequences
were, and academically, what
exactly happened,” Levine said.

“I do not like scolding my

Mathews said in an email.
As harsh as the letter may
seem, Hunt said they tried to
keep it cordial.

Head to for stories on
the North Carolina softball, track and
field and men’s tennis teams’ weekends.
Junior attacker Sam McGee (7) celebrates with sophomore attacker Aly Messinger (27) after UNC defeated Maryland, 17-15, on Saturday.
By Ben Coley
Staff Writer
Before entering the NCAA
tournament last year, the North
Carolina women’s lacrosse team
had lost three consecutive games
against the Maryland Terrapins,
including two ACC championships.
But then came the tournament
run. UNC knocked off an unde-
feated Maryland team last season
to win its first title, and on Saturday
afternoon at Fetzer Field, No. 2
Maryland was once again unblem-
ished. But as it turns out, the
Terrapins now have a kryptonite.
It’s in a shade of Carolina blue.
The top-ranked Tar Heels, with
goals from six different players,
once again handed Maryland its
first loss of the season, defeating
the Terrapins 17-15.
For the Tar Heels, it was a
game of two halves. After taking
an early 2-1 lead with goals from
freshmen Maggie Bill and Sydney
Holman, the UNC offense began
to lose the battle for possession.
In the first half, the Terrapins
won 14 draw controls, while UNC
won just six. Maryland’s ball con-
trol led to six unanswered goals,
bolstering its lead to 7-2.
But UNC made adjustments.
Sophomore Megan Ward replaced
freshman Caylee Waters at goalie
and Maryland’s lead was cut to
10-9 heading into the locker room.
“I thought we were just a little
slow adjusting early,” coach Jenny
Levy said. “We have a great group
of defenders, and we felt like we
need more experience on the
field, so we shifted that …”
Ward saved nine shots in the
game — seven in the second half.
At one point, Maryland was held
scoreless for almost 16 minutes.
UNC turned the defensive
aggression into offensive momen-
tum by scoring five unanswered
goals to begin the second half to
take a 14-10 lead.
Levy said that the effort on
both sides of the field led to the
Tar Heels’ momentum swing.
“Defense gets stops and
offense scores goals and then it
starts to snowball into momen-
tum,” Levy said. “We were capable
of that run, that’s not a surprise.”
UNC’s 17 goals were the most
Maryland has given up since
2007. Senior Abbey Friend, who
tied for the team lead with four
goals, is now tied for second on
UNC’s all-time points list with
228 and is second on the all-time
goals list with 178.
Friend said that Ward’s perfor-
mance reminded her of the title
victory against the Terrapins.
“When I saw Ward come in and
completely dominate, I had some

UNC takes
series versus
By Carlos Collazo
Staff Writer
The North Carolina baseball team has
been plagued by error-filled games and a
lack of consistent offense for a large por-
tion of the 2014 season.
But, after a much-needed series win
against Boston College, those problems
might now be in the rearview mirror.
“It was nice to see,” coach Mike Fox
said while waiting for the team’s flight
back home on Sunday. “We scored, I
think, 28 runs in three days. It’s a big
confidence booster for our guys.”
The Tar Heel bats came alive against
Eagle arms this weekend, scoring seven
runs during Friday’s 7-0 win, nine during
the one-run loss Saturday and 12 runs
to clinch the series victory Sunday when
Boston College managed just two.
“This weekend was definitely a break-
out for the bats,” said Trent Thornton,
who threw his first career complete
game shutout Friday night. “We had a
lot of guys do really productive stuff this
Skye Bolt and Landon Lassiter were
two of those players, and they showed
the potential UNC’s offense has when
everyone is clicking. The two sopho-
mores combined to go 8-21 with seven
runs, five RBIs, and seven walks.
“They’re both huge for our offense,
and they both had great weekends” said
junior shortstop Michael Russell. “And
then even when they were getting out,
they were consistently hitting the ball
“It’s going to be huge for our team if
they can keep up their play like I know
they are capable of playing.”
With Bolt and Lassiter adding a spark
to the lineup, there’s much less pressure
on the Tar Heel pitching staff. During
Thornton’s nine-inning shutout Friday
night, he wasn’t on his A-game. But his
team backed him up.
“Honestly, that was probably the most
miserable game I’ve ever been a part of,”
Thornton said. “I mean it was in the 30s,
the wind was blowing pretty hard … I
actually didn’t have my best stuff that day.
“But you know I got things done, and
the team put up some runs … I don’t
think we made a single error that game.
Our defense was awesome.”
Russell and Thornton raved about
the defensive play that UNC showcased
on Boston College’s Commander Shea
Field — an environment infamous for
the challenges it poses to anyone with a
“The field conditions aren’t the best,
and we were still able to play really good
defense,” Russell said. “That was a big
sign for us.”
The trip to Boston College could easily
be a turning point for the Tar Heels, who
are on the verge of getting above .500 in
the ACC.
“I’ve been saying all year, it’s only a
matter of time before they both break
out,” Russell said.
He was referring to Lassiter and Bolt,
but the statement could also be applied
to UNC’s hitting and fielding.
In both cases, they seem to be break-
ing out.
UNC excelled on both sides of
the ball at Boston College.
UNC tennis sweeps weekend matches
By Bryan Frantz
Staff Writer
It’s been five weeks and a day
since the No. 6 North Carolina
women’s tennis team dropped a
match, but it’s the next two and half
weeks that could decide its fate.
The Tar Heels continued their
strong play this weekend, picking
up two more victories against No.
14 Miami and No. 38 Florida State
to bring their streak to 10 straight
wins and further helping their
chances of clinching a berth in the
ACC Tournament.
Freshmen Jamie Loeb, the No.
1 singles player in the nation and
No. 7 Hayley Carter as well as
No. 47 junior Caroline Price each
picked up two wins this weekend.
Not only did all three win both
matches, none of them dropped a
single set all weekend.
Loeb is now 42-2 in singles for
the season, and her quick victory
in straight sets on court one set the
tone for the Tar Heels on Sunday
against the Seminoles. UNC did
not lose a single set the entire day,
a welcome change after a much
closer 5-2 victory against Miami
the day before.
The No. 3 doubles team of
Loeb and Carter beat the No. 23
pair of Clementina Riobueno and
Monique Albuquerque for Miami,
but struggled against an unranked
pair for Florida State in a match
that did not finish. The match was
tied 4-4 when it was abandoned
after UNC clinched the doubles
For Carter, the key to the Tar
Heels’ win streak is all about tim-
ing. She and Loeb made some
technical adjustments as a doubles
team for the match against Duke
last month, and things have been
going well for both the pair and
the team ever since.
“We’re fighting so hard for each
other, every single match, every
single court, we’re giving it 150
percent,” she said. “We’re all just
starting to come together and
starting to gel at a good time.”
Coach Brian Kalbas said the
loss against Duke was not just a
turning point for the Loeb-Carter
duo, but for the whole team as

North Carolina wins thriller in final home game of season
By Kate Eastman
Staff Writer
Nearly 5,000 fans poured into
Fetzer Stadium Saturday to watch
No. 5 North Carolina take on No. 9
Virginia in a men’s lacrosse matchup.
But what they witnessed instead
was a race. A neck-and-neck dead
sprint, in fact, defined by tit-for-tat
transition goals and five lead changes.
A goal from R.G. Keenan with 2:28
left gave UNC the final 11-10 advan-
tage and the Tar Heels emerged victo-
rious from the 60-minute heat, finally
able to catch their breaths.
“That was definitely one of the
most mentally tough games I’ve been
in in a while,” said junior attackman
Joey Sankey.
As soon as Keenan and UVa. junior
Mick Parks took their starting posi-
tions at the X for the first face-off,
both sides bolted at one another with
high intensity and a sense of urgency.
UNC struck first, two minutes into
the match, with a goal from Steve
Pontrello. UVa. equalized at the 7:03
mark, but goals from Sankey and
Jimmy Bitter rounded out the first
period in UNC’s favor.
Virginia forced the Tar Heels to
chase its offense in the second period,
disrupting UNC’s typical run-and-
gun style of play and outscoring them
4-2 in the second period. Neither
team seemed able to find a rhythm in
the match’s back-and-forth frenzy.
“Ground balls was the No. 1 key
and key No. 2 was to stop transition,”
said coach Joe Breschi. “Three of their
first five goals by half were in transi-
tion, some sort of transition … They’re
good at it, we’re good at it.”
UNC’s Achilles’ heel in defend-
ing UVa.’s full-field acceleration was
senior attackman Mark Cockerton. In
the third period, Cockerton assisted

flashbacks,” Friend said jokingly.
The game was the final regular
season ACC meeting between The
Tar Heels and Maryland, due to
the Terrapins’ departure for the
Big Ten.
But sophomore Aly Messinger
hinted that the rivalry is not over
“Every time we play this game
we are pumped and ready to go,”
Messinger said. “We played them
three times last year and will prob-
ably play them three times again
this year. So every time we play
them, we want to play them hard,
no matter the outcome.”
And luckily for the Tar Heels,
this outcome was another North
Carolina victory.

he said. “The culture of our team
was not where it needed to be and
now we’re building toward more of
a championship culture.”
Price said she’s happy with
the recent stretch of success, but
she and the rest of the Tar Heels
are focused on bigger and better
“We’re not really worried so
much on wins and losses, just
about going out there and getting
better,” she said.

coming out of halftime and later
added a personal equalizer — his third
tally of the day.
“He’s one of the best attackmen in
the ACC,” said sophomore goalkeep-
er Kieran Burke. “Lefty, Canadian.
He’s really shifty left and right. It’s
difficult, but we limited him — he
could’ve had six (goals).”
As the third period ticked away,
UVa. was penalized for tripping and
Walker Chafee capitalized on the
game’s only man-up opportunity
to propel North Carolina into the
fourth period with a 9-8 lead.
But Cockerton was lethal again,
scoring his fourth goal with 7:24 left.
UVa. struck four minutes later in
what appeared to be the game-winner,
but the Tar Heels picked up the pace
down the final stretch. Pontrello and
Keenan netted back-to-back to shots,
and Burke swatted away multiple
close-call attempts. For the first time
all game, UVa. had run out of steam.
“We got nervous at times but hon-
estly … we just stay composed and
keep grinding and get after it,” said
Burke. “It’s just composure, sticking to
the game plan. That’s really it. That’s
what we live by and die by.”
