Pino
class of 2014 bids

adieu to unc
reforms
will go on

Andrea Pino hopes the sexual
assault movement will continue.
By Bradley Saacks
University Editor

Andrea Pino is ready to move on from UNC, but
she won’t move on from the movement she started.
Pino’s college career came to a conclusion this
past weekend after an eventful four years that
were highlighted when she brought her issues
with UNC’s response to her sexual assault case to
the nation’s attention.
“I will never stop being a Tar Heel, but I am
ready to leave,” she said.
Despite Pino’s peace with departing just as the
reforms she started are taking place, she said she
is worried for the sexual assault movement on
campus going forward.
“I am concerned over the momentum on campus
in terms of individual student input,” Pino said. “I
think the most important part of any movement
is how successful it is on campus, because we
can have a great national scene, but if we do not
have campuses actually holding their universities
accountable, then we can only do so much.”
She said there were still gaps in the reforms,
specifically mentioning training, resource management and breaking the sexual assault stereotype as
areas in which the University could improve.
Pino said she personally struggled with academically readjusting after she was sexually
assaulted at an off-campus party in 2012.
“We need the ability to become students again
after sexual violence,” she said.
Pino said there was a disconnect between
Accessibility Resources and Service and Academic
Advising that made her transition back to a normal
college life difficult. The lack of communication
resulted in her having to overload her schedule this
past semester in order to graduate, she said.
When asked about the next step in the movement on campus, Christi Hurt, director of the
Carolina Women’s Center, said the work of the
University’s Sexual Assault Task Force will dictate
the progression of the reforms.
“After the task force releases their report, we
will have a new (sexual assault) policy, and that
will be in place soon,” Hurt said.
Pino said she’ll be glad to see the task force’s
work put into action but acknowledged it’s only
the beginning.
“I think the policy is really only step one here
at Carolina,” she said. “I think we need students
who are willing to and are going to hold this university accountable and demand transparency.”
Hurt said she didn’t think Pino’s departure from
campus would halt the movement she started.
“Andrea has been a valuable voice for sexual
assault survivors and for all of her work, and that
has been a tremendous effort on her part, but
there are a lot of folks who continue to advocate
for improvements to the University’s services for
survivors,” Hurt said.
UNC’s Title IX Compliance Coordinator Howard
Kallem applauded the efforts of Pino but said he is
not concerned the movement will die down.
“This is not to take away from any of the work
that Andrea has done, but she has not been the only
voice, and the other voices will continue,” he said.
Hurt mentioned that Pino’s and others’ efforts
have made the issue of sexual assault — and subsequent UNC reforms — nationally prominent
enough that awareness will not disappear due to
the loss of one voice.
“We all long for the day where we are put out of
business because we have ended all forms of violence, harassment and discrimination, but until
we have done that as a society, I do not think that
any of this will be losing visibility,” Hurt said.
Pino does not intend to ignore her new alma
mater now that she is no longer an undergraduate.
“I’ll continue to be vocal, but I do hope other
students begin to take on this issue,” she said.
When Pino started college, she said she never
imagined she would do something that would
result in receiving death threats, but she never
had any second thoughts about choosing UNC.
“I never regretted going to Carolina — Carolina
was my dream school, and it still is my dream
school,” she said. “The main reason why I filed my
complaint was not to seek recourse for myself but
to make Carolina better.”

GRADUATION SHOTS
The many faces of Sunday’s commencement ceremony don’t stop
here — view the complete gallery
online at dailytarheel.com.

There were a lot of firsts during
UNC-Chapel Hill’s 2014 graduation
weekend.
The first female chancellor in
University history signed her first diplomas at her first graduation as chancellor for 671 first-generation college
graduates — a group known as Carolina
Firsts.
“You’ll always forever be my very
first class of graduates at Carolina,”
Chancellor Carol Folt said during
Sunday’s commencement ceremony in
Kenan Memorial Stadium.
“I thought nothing could be finer
than a Carolina spring ... until I saw
all the Carolina blue grads sitting here
today.”
As Folt continued her address, she
induced sheepish smiles throughout the
stadium.
“What is the ‘special sauce’ that keeps
Carolina special?” Folt said.
“I’ve got a pretty good idea of the
answer: It’s you.”
On Sunday, nearly 6,000 students
became alumni at the commencement
ceremony.
Among the 49 different degrees,
psychology and biology were the most
popular majors, recognizing 444 and
404 graduates respectively. Russian and
Eastern European Studies was the rarest diploma given — only one student
graduated with the major.
Atul Gawande, a surgeon and journalist, gave the commencement address.
He started by asking for the new grads
to bear with him as he compared the
graduates to a study done on child cancer patients.
“That’s what happens when you
put a doctor in between you and your
degree,” said Gawande, who also

Armed man still not charged
Police have not yet
brought charges in
March knife incident.
By Jenny Surane
Senior Writer

Two months after police took
a man into custody for wielding
knives through campus, police
still have not been able to file
charges for the incident that
sparked campus-wide terror and
confusion.
On March 24, Jesse Alan
Kister, 31, was involuntarily
committed to UNC Hospitals

in Department of Public Safety
custody after police said he ran
armed through the student union.
It was a lack of information
that left students feeling frenzied that day. Records provided
to The Daily Tar Heel show
police were told the man was
carrying knives, but sent a more
generic Alert Carolina message.
After the incident, Randy
Young, a spokesman for DPS,
said Kister would be charged with
assault with a deadly weapon
upon his release from the hospital. But after six weeks, no charges
have been filed, and police won’t
say where Kister is residing.
“The institutions themselves

cannot disclose to me whether
this person is a patient or their
current status,” Young said. “As
soon as this person is remanded
out of custody — out of medical
supervision or medical treatment
— the charges will be filed.”
The Orange County
Courthouse cannot release the
nature of the warrants police have
filed against Kister until he’s officially been served, said Jennifer
Powell, the assistant clerk of the
courthouse’s criminal division.
Last month, The Daily Tar
Heel received DPS radio traffic
from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. on March
23 — the day the armed man
ran through campus. Most of the

radio traffic was redacted because
the department won’t release
information that might hinder its
investigation.
The campus sirens started
sounding around 4 p.m. Police
did not give the all-clear until
almost an hour later — after
Kister had made the half-mile
walk to Franklin Street and was
captured by Chapel Hill police.
One DPS officer said he was
making his way to the scene with
his police car sirens sounding
audibly, alerting students — and
the armed man he was searching
for — to his location.

Veterans could get in-state tuition
Gov. Pat McCrory plans
to support in-state
tuition for veterans.
By Amanda Albright
Senior Writer

After already announcing plans
to offer veterans in-state tuition
at community colleges, Gov. Pat
McCrory said he will push for that
at all UNC-system schools.
North Carolina is home to
the third-largest active military force in the country, and
it would join 24 other states in

offering in-state tuition to veterans if the proposal is passed by
the N.C. General Assembly in its
short session this summer.
McCrory’s proposal comes
after an N.C. Senate bill calling
for in-state tuition for veterans
stalled last year.
Mike Hart, a student veteran
at UNC-Chapel Hill, said a drawback veterans face when going
back to school is the financial
transition on top of academics.
“We have other adult life
complications — we’re completely self-sustainable,” he said.

But first, don’t take a #selfie.

From staff and wire reports

eird things happen in Florida, but a post-selfie arrest is
pretty marvelous. Taylor Harrison, a 21-year-old​South
Florida man, took the picture with drugs and cash​adjacent to a patrol car to prove the ease at which he could
sell in front of authorities. After the pictures were posted to Facebook,
Harrison proceeded to sell to an undercover narcotics detective. Repeat,
he then sold the drugs to an undercover cop. Not looking so bad ass now,
are we? In response, the Martin County Sheriff ’s Office posted the selfies on their Facebook page with his booking photo. Major props to the
Martin County Sheriff ’s Office. The pictures have acquired over 4,000
likes since, but they will not be paying for that $55,500 bond.
NOTED. A 103-year-old Orca named
Granny was spotted off of Canada’s western coast.
SeaWorld could be sufficiently screwed
because of this. They currently claim they
“don’t know” the average lifespan for Orcas
because captive Orcas tend to die young.
To that we say YGG: You go, Granny.

QUOTED. “Well, this is the first time I’ve
heard of it.”
— Alison Anthoine, the baffled wife of
Michael Wolff, after learning Wolff failed
to mention to her that he was filing for
divorce last week after five years of separation. Well, I have heard communication
is key in a good relationship. Awkward.

Chi Phi to

The Greek Judicial Board hands
over the case to a higher power.

Staff Writer

ideal,” he said. “While we welcome public and private support
for the arts, it’s far less than it
could or should be.”
Clyde Edgerton, president of
the Arts Council of Wilmington
and New Hanover County, will
be the featured speaker on Arts
Day’s legislative day, riling up the
troops before sending them off to
meet the legislators.
“The public schools is where
we can show that the imagination is important, and that art
is important, because it helps us
become more human — embraces
uncertainty,” Edgerton said.
“There’s a wisdom in uncertainty, and there’s a wisdom in
art, and I think if we encourage
that in school — courage in ourselves — then we’ll have a brighter and a happier world.”

The Interfraternity Council’s Greek Judicial
Board hearings concluded last week, leaving
Pi Lambda Phi on social probation for the
fall and sending Chi Phi to their Standards
Review Board for a more intensive review.
The review board is a higher authority than
the judicial board, with the power to consider
past allegations from various sources.
“The way the Greek Judicial Board’s jurisdiction is laid out, we look at allegations in a
specific sense,” said Fields Pierce, chairman of
the Greek Judicial Board. “Chi Phi is a repeat
offender, and so we felt like giving that case
over to the Standards Review Board.”
Interfraternity Council President Kenan
Drum is a member of the Standards Review
Board, along with its chairman, Dean of
Students Jonathan Sauls, other faculty members, and student and alumni representatives.
Drum said the review board can take into
account prior investigations made by both
the University and national office, and also
has greater penalties at its disposal than the
judicial board.
“The Greek Judicial Board doesn’t have
the power to do away with university recognition of a particular chapter,” Drum said.
“The Standards Review Board can discuss
matters such as university recognition and
vote on those.”
Though the Greek Judicial Board may
refer a case to the Standards Review Board at
any time, it has not done so for several years.
“I spoke with Aaron Bachenheimer a
week ago and the last time he can remember
it meeting was, I think, 2011,” Drum said.
“There have been no cases that have warranted Standards Review Board intervention
(since then).”
The Chi Phi review process will not
relate to the 2012 death of freshman David
Shannon, who was a Chi Phi pledge.
“The David Shannon case has nothing
to do with the Chi Phi investigation at this
time,” Drum said.
He said the Standards Review Board will
not meet until fall.
The Greek Judicial Board also intends to
enforce sanctions from Chi Phi’s national
organization, but Pierce said those sanctions
are not yet fully official.
“(The sanctions) have been relayed to the
chapter by word of mouth, but they have not
been relayed by an official remedial action
plan,” he said. “Once that happens, all of
those plans will be enforced.”
Pierce said the judicial board will look at
Chi Phi’s national sanctions again in the fall.
A spokesman for the Southern Order
Memorial Foundation, which owns the Chi
Phi house on South Columbia Street, said in
a statement the foundation will continue to
transparently work with the University.
Unlike Chi Phi, Pi Lam does not face the
possibility of losing university recognition.
Pi Lam is subject to sanctions from Honor
Court in addition to the social probation levied by the Greek Judicial Board.
Pierce said social probation allows recruitment and philanthropy events but forbids Pi
Lam from sponsoring social events.
Chapter president Robert Harrison said
the fraternity is complying with all sanctions
and hopes to move forward as a contributing
member of the campus.
Honor Court sanctions are protected by
FERPA and could not be disclosed.
“Pi Lambda Phi’s come a long way in the
last year,” Harrison said. “We’ve worked to
make sure the mistakes that happened last
fall are never going to happen again.”

Taylor George charges toward the goal during Sunday afternoon’s NCAA tournament game against Georgetown.

Women’s lacrosse will meet Virginia again in NCAAs
By Alexis Barnes
Staff Writer

In 2013, the North Carolina women’s
lacrosse team met Virginia in the quarterfinals of the NCAA tournament in Chapel
Hill and came out on top with a 13-9 victory.
The Tar Heels would advance to eventually win their first NCAA tournament championship.
On Saturday, three-seeded North Carolina
will face six-seeded Virginia for a rematch in
the NCAA quarterfinals in Chapel Hill.
The two teams are not unfamiliar competitors.
The last time UNC and the Cavaliers
met was on March 8 during the regular
season, when UNC defeated the Cavaliers
14-10.
Both teams made their NCAA tournament
appearance in the second round on Sunday
and came out with close victories.
The Tar Heels defeated Georgetown
10-8 to advance to the NCAA quarterfinals.
Coach Jenny Levy said the leadership

of seniors Sloane Serpe and Abbey Friend
plays an important role in the team’s success.
“(Serpe and Friend are) two kids who
have been carrying our team all year,
because we play seven freshmen, and that’s
not an excuse, but they don’t have the AllAmericans around them that we normally
have,” Levy said.
“Sloane is a total warrior. She’s the top
defender in the country, and Abbey is one of
the best attackers in the country, and that’s
why we won today — because of the play of
those two kids. They should not get overlooked going forward in this season.”
Friend, who now holds the most career
goals for North Carolina with 195, proves
to be a huge offensive threat for the Tar
Heels.
This season, she has had career highs of
62 goals, 78 points and 16 assists.
“Abbey is smart,” Levy said.
“She’s playing with one other senior (who
is) Taylor George, and the rest are freshmen
and one sophomore, and she had to carry
the unit all season. She understands that.

She embraces that. She has a lot of big game
experience, and we have a lot of trust in what
she can do.”
After the Tar Heels’ victory on Sunday,
the team was unsure who they would play
next as UVa. and Princeton were playing
later in the day.
Levy planned on preparing the team to
continue to battle.
“For us it’s going to be recover, sharpen up
(and) continue to get better,” she said.
“We’re so far from being a finished product, but we’re tough, and we’re going to keep
clawing and scraping and doing what we can
to get wins.”
Virginia defeated Princeton 13-11 — but
it didn’t matter to Friend who the Tar Heels
played next.
“No matter what, any NCAA game is
going to be a tough one,” she said.
“At the end of the day, it doesn’t really
matter who we play — we just have to bring
our A-game every day.”

He said he discovered theater

— From staff and wire reports

up about the importance of public
arts at Arts Day, a two-day event
in Raleigh where advocates from
North Carolina will meet to network and discuss support of the
arts with state legislators.
Arts Day is a product of ARTS
North Carolina, an advocacy nonprofit organization comprised of
N.C. residents involved in public
arts.
Margaret DeMott serves as a
board member of ARTS as well as
the director of artistic services at
the Durham Arts Council.
“Our job as representatives of
the arts — and as people who are
championing them — is to keep
that communication vibrant and
fresh and new,” DeMott said.
“Arts advocacy, in this context,
(means) we’re talking to our legislators.”
Devra Thomas, the board chairwoman of the Orange County Arts
Commission and Orange County

leader for Arts Day, said the goal
of the county’s presence is to
maintain support for the arts.
“We are very blessed to have
elected representatives who,
for years and years, have been
supportive of the arts,” Thomas
said.
DeMott said the effects of Arts
Day are a long-term building
process.
“We go with the belief that we
are going to impact decisions that
are made this year, and I think
every year we have impacted
decisions, but it’s not just about
the immediate,” she said.
Musician, author, community
activist and Arts Day speaker Si
Kahn agreed there is a need for
state support.
“It would hardly be an understatement to say that the working
conditions for artists in North
Carolina — and, for that matter,
in the United States — are hardly

DSI Comedy moves into more room to perform
DSI will celebrate their
new space with kickoff
events through the year.
By Tess Boyle
Staff Writer

With a fresh start and a new
downtown location, Dirty South
Comedy Theater can now be more
active and publicly accessible.
The comedy theater, now open to
the public five days a week, will offer
more opportunities for the public to
watch and take part in comedy.
On May 1, DSI opened its doors
to the public at its new location at
462 W. Franklin St.
Moving from its previous location
in Carr Mill Mall in Carrboro, DSI’s
new 7,200-square-foot space allows
for more performances, more comedy classes and the ability for the
two to occur simultaneously.
Zach Ward, executive producer of
DSI, said before the move they weren’t
able to accommodate both classes and
performances at the same time.
And Ashley Melzer, associate
artistic director for DSI, said the
new space makes for a more active
environment.
“Our old space was a performing

theatre — you came in and saw a show
and maybe you stayed for a couple of
shows but it didn’t feel as much like
a place you could come any time you
wanted to and hang out,” she said.
Though DSI hosted a fiveday kickoff event celebrating the
Franklin Street opening, Melzer said
the whole year will be dedicated to
their grand reopening.
“We don’t want this space to be
dark,” Ward said. “We don’t want the
doors to be locked at any time really.
Even when we’re closed on a Sunday
or Monday, we have rehearsals and
classes and programs for groups outside of the theater.”
And he said the new location has
already increased the amount of
public interest in the theater.
“It’s in a location where a lot more
people are just walking up to find
out what’s going on,” he said. “Just
the number of conversations I’ve had
being here during the day is twice as
many as I’ve had in the last year.”
DSI’s move was funded by online
donations from a Kickstarter fund.
Ward said it was motivating to
see the support they got once they
launched their fund. He said within
two days of launching, they were able
to hit 30 percent of the goal.
“We had to have faith that our

nity would help us out,” Melzer said.
“Here, we find through our shows
that many hands make light work,
whether it means opening up the
theater or performing on stage.”
DSI’s mission of accessibility
extends further than providing regular
entertainment at a low price. The theater also donates portions of its yearly
proceeds to nonprofits in the area.
“If people support DSI, we’re
able to give back to the community,”
Ward said.

Jonathan Yeomans, a performer
and instructor of IMPROV 101 classes
at DSI, said the new space provides
a more diverse offering of shows and
enables a wider range of instruction
for a larger number of students.
“We’re not just starting up,” Ward
said. “We’ve been doing this for
almost a decade. It’s exciting to get
that in front of a larger crowd.”

Primary winners
look to November
The candidates are
preparing for the
work ahead.
By Jonathan Moyer
and Amy Tsai
Senior Writers

The May 6 primary elections ended in few surprises
overall — despite a crowded
and expensive U.S. Senate race
and some close victories at the
local level in Orange County.
With the primaries finished, nominees from the
Democratic, Republican and
Libertarian parties will prepare to face off in November’s
general elections.

U.S. Senate
The primaries for North
Carolina’s seat in the U.S.
Senate featured 13 candidates
running for three parties’
nominations. The race has
been identified as one of the
most contested and expensive
in the nation.
Sen. Kay Hagan, D-N.C.,
and N.C. Speaker of the
House Thom Tillis, R-N.C.,
won the Democratic and
Republican nominations,
respectively. Sean Haugh won
the Libertarian nomination
for U.S. Senate.
The three parties’ primary
winners all claimed early leads
they did not relinquish.
Tillis, who won 45.7 percent of his party’s vote, said
in his acceptance speech
Republicans are on the same
team to unseat incumbent

Hagan in November.
“If we want to change
Obamacare, we have to change
our senator,” he said in the
speech. “If we want to end our
nation’s financial crisis, we
have got to change our senator.”
Hagan released a statement after her victory, which
she won with 77.2 percent of
the vote.
“I am honored to serve
North Carolina, but I know
that this job is about the
families working every day for
a better future,” Hagan said in
the statement. “I will continue putting them, and North
Carolina, first as we continue
our work to make all North
Carolina families strong and
great.”
Hagan has raised more
than $13 million in campaign contributions, while
Tillis has raised more than
$3 million.
Haugh, who won 60.7 percent of the Libertarian vote,
said his campaign works with
a small budget, and no records
exist on his fundraising.
His plan for the general election is to produce issue-specific
YouTube videos and host townhall-style events across N.C., he
said in an interview.
“Communications technology has changed so much that it
really makes it possible for me
to get my message out without
having to spend millions of
dollars to do it,” Haugh said.

Orange County
The sheriff election was
one of few with a contested
outcome, not only in speculation but in results.
Current Sheriff Lindy
Pendergrass did not decide to
run for office, leaving the position open for six contenders.
The top candidate Charles
Blackwood, did not receive
the required 40 percent of
votes required to win outright.
There were less than a
hundred votes separating
Blackwood and his closest
opponent, David Caldwell, Jr.
After the primary, both
candidates said they were
pleased with the elections and
the runoff.
“This shows our government in action and how the
democratic process is supposed to work,” Caldwell said.
The runoff election will be
seven to 10 weeks after the
primaries.
On the same night, former
Carrboro mayor Mark Chilton
was elected for Orange County
Register of Deeds, winning by
3 percent more than incumbent Deborah Brooks.
One of his talking points
during his campaign was
signing marriage licenses for
same-sex couples, even though
Amendment One prevents
same-sex marriage in N.C.
Chilton also said since there
was no Republican candidate,
all he has to do until the elections in November is wait.

received an honorary doctorate of science.
He detailed the essentials
for post-graduation: taking
the lessons one learned in
college and applying them
to the real world, finding
a way to get connected to
something bigger than just
yourself and embracing challenges.
Gawande ended his speech
by expressing his gratitude
for the future contributions
of the graduates as well as for
his newest degree.
“Thank you for all you are
going to do, and thank you
for making me a Tar Heel,”
he said.
Senior Class President
Georgia Walker attempted to
quell the fears of entering the
post-graduation world with

Radio Traffic

from page 1

Young said the officer
probably used sirens to get to
the quad quickly.
“If this was a protracted
situation, for example, if a
person was in a situation and
there was hostages involved,
and you heard radio traffic,
you would be much less likely
to hear sirens,” Young said.
And in the initial dispatch,
operators told DPS officers
they were looking for an armed
man carrying two visible
knives near the Pit with long
hair and a baseball cap wearing
a hunter green rain coat.
But in their first Alert
Carolina message, police only
reported an armed and dangerous man on or near campus and told students they
had activated the campuswide siren system so students
would know to seek shelter.
“There’s some things we
just can’t do in an Alert
Carolina message,” Young said.

Walker utilized a quote
from poet William G.T.
Shedd.
“A ship is safe in harbor;
that’s not what ships are built
for,” Walker said.
As tradition dictates, commencement was held on
“And we sacrifice description
for the sake of getting the message out immediately.”
DPS relies on templates it
can deploy quickly in times
of crisis. While the templates
allow police to alert students
quickly, they are vague.
Desperate for information,
students took to social media
so they could know the kind of
threat their campus was facing.
While he appreciated the
efforts police made to capture the armed man, C.J.
Brodowicz, the president of the
Alpha Tau Omega fraternity,
said he felt police should have
given students a description
of him and been more specific
about the weapons he carried.
“It kind of made it worse
because the way people are,
they want to figure it out,”
said Brodowicz, who’s fraternity house sits across the
street from the church where
police eventually captured
Kiser. “So instead of staying
inside, people tried to go out.”
But Young said the depart-

peppered with signs thanking

Walker enjoyed pointing
out her mother, a Duke graduate, who was clad in Carolina
blue for the occasion.
And her speech included
the obligatory shots at former
Carolina point guard Larry
Drew II and Duke.
“We watched Duke chicken-out because of a couple of
snowflakes,” Walker said.
While many speeches
provided thought-provoking
metaphors, Board of Trustees
chairman W. Lowry Caudill
kept it simple for the new
graduates.

the demand for information.
“They want as much information as possible, immediately, but that’s not always the
priority,” he said. “But it is a

In-State Vets

from page 1

“If there was zero financial
stress, I would be able to
enjoy and flourish in this
environment, 100 percent,
and have no stress.”
Under McCrory’s proposal,
veterans could receive a minimum $7,500 scholarship for
two semesters at UNC-system
schools if they have served for
four years, served at an N.C.
military facility and earned an
honorable discharge.
After veterans’ first two
semesters, they are expected
to establish in-state residency
— which is why the scholarships expire — according to
the proposal. The scholarships would cost a projected
$5 million, which would
be funded from the N.C.
Education Lottery.
Though McCrory’s plan does
exclude some groups, such as
students who are beyond two
years since military service, it
is a step in the right direction,
said Jacob Hinton, president
of the Carolina Veterans
Organization.
“For me, it makes me feel
like the N.C. administration
is trying to do something for
us,” he said. “They’re trying
to make that promise to us
that, ‘We’re here to help you
succeed.’”
System President Tom
Ross, who testified to a U.S.
House of Representatives veterans’ affairs committee last
week, said the system “has
always supported extending
in-state tuition to certain veterans and their families” and
is working with the General
Assembly to enact legislation.
There are about 8,000 students in the system who use
veteran benefits.
Will Hubbard, spokesman
for the Student Veterans of
America, said veterans have
worked on the issue for years.
“There’s a lot of student
veterans in North Carolina,
and in the past it has been a
sticking point for us,” he said.
“It’s really a shift in attention. It’s one thing to say
you support veterans and it’s
another to put the time and
energy to make that happen.”

Hurricanes in forecast for baseball
By Pat James
Sports Editor

After losing the first two
games of its three-game series
against No. 4 Florida State,
the North Carolina baseball
team’s postseason dreams
were in jeopardy.
The Tar Heels entered the
series with spots in the ACC
and NCAA tournaments in
their reach, but a late-season
sweep at home would be detrimental — making Sunday’s
game the most important to
date.
And behind a go-ahead
RBI by freshman Tyler
Ramirez in the seventh
inning, UNC seized a monumental 5-4 win to allow the
team to keep dreaming for

another week.
“That Sunday game, you
want to bounce back after
two losses, prove yourself a
little bit and have the right
answer to failure,” said senior
Parks Jordan afterward. “It’s
only one game, but it still
means a lot for our team
going forward into this next
week.”
The Tar Heels will begin
another three-game series
tonight in Coral Gables, Fla.,
against No. 13 Miami with
the same implication in play
— win at least one game to
make that postseason dream
an almost sure reality.
The Hurricanes are one of
the hottest teams in the country — carrying a 21-2 record
since the beginning of April

and a 22-5 conference record
that has them projected as
the No. 1 seed in next week’s
ACC tournament.
Wins against FSU and
Virginia verify UNC’s ability to compete with the top
teams in the country. But
lapses of concentration have
plagued the team all season
and are why it’s fighting for
its 13th-straight NCAA tournament birth.
Senior Tom Zengel said
eliminating such infectious
behavior is vital to the team
having success against Miami
and in the ACC tournament.
“We’ve just got to come out
and play like every game’s a
championship game,” Zengel
said. “Too many times, we
come out and don’t really

get into the game or feel like
we’re all ready until the fifth
or sixth inning, and I think
we’ve just got to make sure we
come out ready to play every
day.
“I think that’s the biggest
thing, because if we come
out ready to play, we can beat
anybody, we can play with
anybody.”
UNC is 14-13 in the ACC
and slated as the No. 5 seed
for the conference tournament. But just one loss this
weekend could result in a
massive shakeup in seeding,
as four teams are within a
game of the Tar Heels.
The team knows its future
is in limbo, but coach Mike
Fox said his team would continue to fight, as evidenced by

dth/Kendall Bagley
Trevor Kelley pitches for the Tar Heels in their last home game.

Sunday’s victory.
“We’re just hanging by a
thread,” Fox said. “We’re just
hanging in there. We have to
be focused. My gosh, that’s all

we’re doing now is just playing baseball.”

Men’s tennis seeks to knock o≠ Georgia
By Danielle Herman
Staff Writer

They say revenge is a dish
best served cold — but the
North Carolina men’s tennis
team looks to serve up their
revenge in both the literal
and emotional Georgia heat
as they take on the No. 8
Bulldogsat their home court
in Athens, Ga.
UNC is no stranger to
tough matches, and playing
the Bulldogs at their home
court in the Sweet Sixteen

round of the NCAA tournament deals the team a unique
challenge.
The team seeks to avenge
its 4-0 loss to Georgia in the
same round in 2012.The two
teams did not face each other
during the regular season this
year, but Georgia leads the alltime series 11-7.
“There’s nothing special
about that team,” freshman
Brayden Schnursaid. “They’re
very good, of course, but we’re
a good team, too.”
The Bulldogs have his-

torically performed well in the
tournament. Georgia holds the
all-time NCAA tournament
record at 98-31,and Friday’s
match against UNC will mark
their 11th-straight appearance
in the round of sixteen.
UNC’s NCAA tournament
record tips toward the losing
side at 20-22.Last weekend,
the team swept South Carolina
State in the first round and
beat South Carolina 4-1 in the
second round.
Freshman Ronnie
Schneider, who fought

through tough doubles and
singles matches against USC
last Sunday, said the team is
excited to go to Athens.
“It’s always been a dream of
mine,” he said.
Coach Sam Paulsaid his
team is prepared for the
increasingly tough matches
ahead as it advances in the
tournament.
“We learned some things
today about how to manage a
few things a little better, if we
get up in a spot, how to keep
plugging a little bit,” Paul said

after Sunday’s hard-fought
victory.
And dealing with a loud
crowd in Athens, the Tar
Heels will have to keep plugging to defeat Georgia and
advance to the quarterfinals.
Georgia will enjoy a homecourt advantage for the
remainder of the tournament,
so unlike other teams traveling to Athens, UNC will face a
larger, louder crowd — cheering mostly against them.
For the Tar Heels, it will be
all about execution and play-

ing their game despite the
loud, energetic and possibly
hostile environment.
“I think we just need to
focus on our court, just not
get distracted with everything
going on around us, with
the big crowd and how loud
they’re gonna be,” Schnur said.
And if the Tar Heels manage to do it at Georgia’s own
court, revenge will be that
much sweeter.

Governments talk about
residential expansion
Plans for a new
library and zoning
code are underway.
By Jonathan Moyer
and Joey DeVito
Staff Writers

While college students took
a break before summer kicked
in, Chapel Hill, Carrboro and
Orange County governments
were hard at work.

Chapel Hill Town Council
After months of intense
debate and deliberation, the
Chapel Hill Town Council
passed a proposal Monday
night which they hope will
encourage development on
Ephesus Church Road and
Fordham Boulevard.
The council voted to bring
form-based zoning code to
the area, which is expected to
make development easier.
Members of the council
said they believe this new
code will bring more retail,
affordable housing and better transportation within the
community.
The plan will also address
some of the stormwater
management concerns that
come with the area’s development.
“The nature of this area
is different,” Mayor Mark
Kleinschmidt said. “I think
we’re getting extraordinary
benefits if we go forward with
this.”
The proposal and the
attempt to further develop
Ephesus-Fordham led to a
mass of input from citizens.
Over twenty people
addressed the council during
the deciding meeting, many
of whom urged the council to
take more time before voting
on the form-based zoning
code.
Councilman Matt
Czajkowski was the lone dissenting opinion on the code’s
adoption.
“Let’s understand that
we will potentially lose
retail instead of gain retail,”
Czajkowski said.
“If we approve the
form-based code for these
retailers, we could end up
with the exact opposite of
what we said we wanted to
achieve. That’s horrifying to
me.”
When it came time to vote,
councilmen Jim Ward and
Ed Harrison also voted no on
applying the code to EphesusFordham.

Jabari Price
Position: CB
Pick #: 225, to Minnesota

His 10-foot-9 broad jump
was the best among defensive
linemen at the NFL combine.

Started 38 consecutive
games over his last three
seasons.

Jabari Price was the fifth
and final Tar Heel selected in
the 2014 NFL Draft.
Price was selected in
the seventh round by the
Minnesota Vikings with the
225th pick overall.
Price led the Tar Heels
with 62 solo tackles and
started all 13 games at cornerback in the 2013 season

­­ which earned him AllACC honorable mention
accolades.

Summer
editor
embraces
challenge

I

’ve never been the editor
of anything before.
Except, you know,
a couple of poorly written
papers in high school. I’m
coming into this summer with
four semesters at The Daily
Tar Heel under my belt, but
you could say I’m still a little
bit unsure of what the hell I’m
doing.
So I’m feeling things out
and learning as I go.
I have to learn the names
of administrators and state
politicians (and how to spell
them,) and remember not
everyone is as interested in
local elections as I am. I also
— apparently — need to be
available in the middle of the
night when a baseball story
needs to be edited. Since that’s
a thing.
We’re going to make a few
mistakes this summer, no
matter how hard my editors
and I try to avoid them —
maybe a headline will get misspelled or we’ll leave placeholder text in the caption of
an important person’s photo
(again.)
There will be at least one
absolutely amazing idea that
never quite pans out and
something I come up with in
the middle of the night that
doesn’t sound as good in the
morning.
I imagine there will be a
few corrections, some big
whoopsies and a mess or two
I will have to learn how to
clean up —and a mess or two
I don’t know how to clean up.
And I will never, ever, ever
see my roommates or my dog
during the day.
But I also see a lot of great
things on the horizon.
I see us challenging our
university, challenging our
community and challenging ourselves to produce the
news we’re known for. I see
a website that is constantly
updating with the most recent
news. I see a staff interacting
with students and town residents on Twitter and out in
the community. I see student
journalists learning to love
being an editor and producing
our newspaper.
And most importantly,
I believe there are a lot of
people who care about The
Daily Tar Heel and upholding our reputation — working
together to make the products
of this summer the best they
can be.
We will look even further
into college campuses’ treatment of sexual assault. We’ll
be following along closely
with Kay Hagan and Thom
Tillis’ campaigns and the
Orange County sheriff runoff
primary. If any of our Tar
Heel sports teams go to the
championships, we’ll be right
there.
And, of course, there are
always a few surprises we’ve
got up our sleeves.
This summer, there will be
a few mistakes. But I also hope
for greatness.
And maybe, just maybe, I’ll
see Marcus Paige in one of my
summer classes. I wouldn’t
mind that either.

Folt hires old favorite
Former SBP’s hiring calls his past actions into question

T

here’s a new position in town, and it’s
couched comfortably in South Building right
between the Chancellor’s
office and the rest of the
University.
Three recent and very
lucky UNC graduates are in
the process of being selected
to be Chancellor’s Fellows
and will work in close contact
with Chancellor Carol Folt
and the rest of her administration beginning June 1.
According to the job
description, the position
is exclusively for recent
graduates of the University
and will offer access to
“high ranking university
officials” and “the opportunity to explore and understand the inner workings of
Carolina.”
The position is for a oneyear fixed term with the salary having yet to be released
by the administration.
Though the day-to-day
duties may be unclear at
this point, one thing is
for certain: the position
would be more aptly named
“Chancellor’s Favorites.”
It’s the perfect opportunity for Folt to raise a new
crop of bureaucrats to the
ranks of her administration
that has swollen during the
past year with the number of
new hires.
Now, students who please
the administration will
have the opportunity to
stick around a little longer
to learn all of its dirty little
secrets.
Christy Lambden, former
student body president,
is one of those three. He
announced his new position at a sexual assault task
force meeting in April.
Soon after he represented
students, he will swap teams
and become a member of
UNC’s leadership whose
priorities, though not always
opposing those of the student body, are very much
distinct from those of the
students.
Lambden refused to comment about his decision to
accept the offer and instead
directed all media questions
to University spokeswoman,
Karen Moon.
Moon said the administration has chosen three
finalists with two having
formally accepted the offer.
However, the University
will not announce the
Fellows until they have
completed the standard
hiring process.
But the question that
really needed to be answered
— and the one that only
Lambden could answer —
is how long he has known
being hired by the University

Andy Willard

Jamestown, N.C.

after graduation was a possibility.
Lambden was no ordinary
student this past year — he
was our student. The student
body voted him into that
position of access so he would
advocate for our needs.
We did not elect him to
become an extension of
South Building.
It calls into question some
of the actions Lambden
took during the year, such
as when he released a letter
of support for the administration when the Mary
Willingham story broke.
Why would the president
of the student body lend
his unquestioning support
to the University’s leaders
without gaining an understanding of Willingham’s
data first?
He did not have adequate
information to draw the conclusions that he did about
the biggest controversy of
the year, yet he immediately leapt to the defense
of Folt and Executive Vice
Chancellor and Provost Jim
Dean.
And during one of the
scariest moments of the
year, when an armed man
ran from Alpine Bagel up to
Franklin Street, Lambden
was with Chancellor Folt.
I know because he called
our former editor-in-chief
to share Folt’s opinion.
Conveniently, opinions that
were the same as his own.
Both were concerned
with the situation because
we released information
that the suspect had been
apprehended before the
Department of Public Safety
had given an all clear. But,
the two also believed that we
did an excellent job finding
and communicating information effectively.
It’s funny to me that on
both the approvals and the
censures, Lambden was of
the same mindset as Folt.
When the student body
president is beholden to
the administration, as one
would be if looking for
future employment, then he
or she can easily lose sight
of whose opinions truly
matter.
And with as much gravity
as Chancellor Folt’s opinions

carry, they should in no way
eclipse those of the student
body.
Folt relied so much on
Lambden because it was her
first year on the job — and
what a change of pace it
must have been for her.
Folt came from
Dartmouth College, a private
institution in the heart of
Yankee territory that enrolls
about one fifth the number
of students UNC does. In
order to acclimate, she spent
her year touring and meeting the members of the large
and diverse campus.
And whether it was
attending games or helping to coordinate meet and
greets with the students,
Lambden did his part in
smoothing out the transition.
It was a wise move, but
one that should be rehashed
in light of his current
employment status.
Lambden was able to
successfully advocate for students on many occasions.
He sat on the University’s
sexual assault task force,
helped create his own task
force to audit all student
fees and he was even able
to expand the influence of
the student body president
on the Board of Trustees by
attending more committee
meetings than predecessors.
Those moments of student advocacy should not be
outweighed by administrative adherence — the former
should always be paramount.
It is my sincere hope that
Andrew Powell will not follow Lambden’s unethical
move into University administration.
Powell has already shown
a great interest in reforming
higher education.
He was employed by
Coursera, a for-profit educational technology company, and he has incorporated many of the ideas he
obtained there into his platform, which is absolutely his
prerogative to do as student
body president.
He has now seen the way
Lambden was able to leverage his influence as student
body president right into the
inner workings of one of the
greatest public universities
in America, something that
would clearly be beneficial
for his mission to reform
higher education.
But Powell should not
be swayed by the cushy job
with its access to UNC’s
secrets.
He would do well to
remember the promise that
he, and every single student
body president before him,
ran on: to listen to and represent UNC’s students, not
its administration.

TO THE EDITOR:
Multiple newspaper
articles have revealed that
UNC may cut funding for
sexual health and wellness
programs in August. As
co-chairwomen of Project
Dinah, a student organization that works to end sexual assault, we are frightened
by this announcement.
University system leaders have used Project
Dinah’s annual event titled
“Orgasm? Yes, Please!” as an
example of an inappropriate use of funds. While the
name is pretty racy, students
fill the Great Hall each year
to learn about safe, consensual and healthy sex.
By opening up a friendly
dialogue about sex,
“Orgasm? Yes, Please!” provides facts about sex and
professional advice from
UNC’s Sexual Wellness
Specialists to students who
would not otherwise seek
out this information. We
hope that this event has
widespread positive effects
on UNC’s campus as students use this information
in their own sexual experiences.
The event also emphasizes to students the
importance of consensual
sex, which helps to combat
rape culture. Project Dinah
believes that encouraging
healthy sexual relationships
is important in keeping our
student body safe, especially as sexual assault on
college campuses becomes
a more prevalent issue.
The Sexual Wellness
Specialists are instrumental
in “Orgasm? Yes, Please!,”
as well as several other
events that make Carolina a
safer environment. Cutting
the funding to this program
would be harmful to the
Carolina community.

Not so Sterling

Diddy speaks

Solange gets a hit

Hot in herre

Donald Sterling called Magic
Johnson a bad “example for
children” despite
his own extramarital exploits. At
least Sterling had
some good advice
for the children in a deposition from a few years ago:
“If you are having sex with a
woman you are paying for,
you always call her honey
because you can’t remember
her name.”

In our depressed economy,
graduates don’t need another commencement speech
telling them to be
entrepreneurial or
socially conscious.
Howard University rightly
recognized that what they
need is a good hype man,
and no one’s better than
Diddy. Except maybe Flava
Flav, UNC’s 2015 commencement speaker. Yeeah Boyyy.

Look Solange, we get it.
It sucks that Bey put her
toddler Blue Ivy
on her album
instead of you,
her talented R&Bsinging sister.
But attacking Mr. Beyonce
Knowles? On the night of
the classiest event you’ll ever
be invited to? It’s not a good
look, especially because
you’re only there due to your
sister’s nepotism.

Potential republican presidential hopeful Marco Rubio
doesn’t believe in
man-made global
warming, saying,
“I do not believe
that human activity is causing these dramatic
changes to our climate.”
That’s absurd. Has he looked
in a mirror at his absurdly
good looks? He’s evidence
of it himself! If he runs, the
primaries will be sooo hot.
