Ailey ii, a part of the Alvin Ailey American dance theater, taught about 30 participants its signature contemporary style in gerrard hall.

Even after winning a national championship, an AP No. 6 preseason ranking wasn’t too shabby. North Carolina had a young team, but still boasted veteran leadership and truckloads of potential by the time Late Night with Roy rolled around. Despite an early loss to Syracuse in the 2K Sports Classic, UNC remained in the top 15 in the nation. North Carolina then plateaued at the top-10 mark, going between No. 9 and No. 11 for seven weeks despite losses to Kentucky and Texas. Week 9 saw the Tar Heels drop an embarrassing game at College of Charleston, but the AP writers didn’t drop them in their rankings. UNC went just to No. 12. That’s when the wheels fell off the wagon. Back-to-back losses to Clemson and Georgia Tech set UNC back to No. 24 with a 12-6 record. Columnists began commenting that UNC’s ability to hang in the polls had something to do with the history behind the program. With the loss to Wake Forest on Wednesday, even those AP writers who are closeted UNC fans could not put in a single vote for the Tar Heels. For the first time since January 2006, Chapel Hill did not have its residents in the AP poll. Contact the Sports Editor at sports@unc.edu.

faculty members discovered prospective commencement ball managers, marshals, and their friends holding “revels” in south Building. the following morning the faculty suspended four students for three weeks on charges of being drunk.

Early season expectations drew a steady clientele wanting Carolina shirts and basketball jerseys for local retailers. But as the basketball team lost games, customers came less often. “This season, sales are definitely down. Business is not good,” said Chapel Hill Sportswear Manager Holly Dedmond. The men’s basketball team’s less-than-stellar performance has not only resulted in disappointed fans, but also in a perceived dip in sales of UNC gear from local stores. Lack of NCAA Tournament

play , which is still too early to predict , could further hurt sales, store owners said. Owner of Carolina Pride Sportswear John Hudson said though the poor economy is an obvious culprit, this January is especially slow. Sales from the national championship last year accounted for 25 percent of the store’s total revenue, he said. “People’s expectations of the team definitely affect sales,” he said. Hudson said customers are less excited to buy merchandise than they were pre-season, when

The police cracked down on underage drinking this fall, but the extra effort also led to several unconstitutional arrests, defense attorneys and legal counselors say. And now, after a number of successful challenges to charges in court, drinking ticket numbers have fallen back to normal levels. “It takes a judge to say, ‘Hey, you pushed the limit here,’” said Chapel Hill attorney Matthew Suczynski, who represented four students in a case that was dismissed last week.

Nash Keune, Joe Levin-Manning and Greg Strompolos joined three others Monday morning as official candidates for student body president, after gathering the required number of signatures to get on the ballot. Only three candidates were originally certified, but the addition of Keune, Levin-Manning and Strompolos brings the field to six, the same number that ran in last year’s election. That election led to a runoff between the top two, a likely scenario in this year’s election. Monique Hardin, Hogan Medlin and Shruti Shah were all certified by the Board of Elections on Thursday when they gathered more than 1,000 valid signatures of support required to get on the ballot. The other three failed to get the signatures, but were allowed 24 hours to collect more and re-submit them, under Student

Provost finalist withdraws to accept position elsewhere
One of the four finalists for the position of executive vice chancellor and provost has withdrawn his name from consideration to accept a position elsewhere. Philip Hanlon, vice provost for academic and budgetary affairs at the University of Michigan, was supposed to give a public presentation on campus today about why he should take over UNC’s No. 2 administrative position. Hanlon, who has a background in mathematics, would have been the first finalist to speak on campus. The other three candidates will give presentations during the next two weeks.

It is clear from the language and outlandish examples in his platform — such as the aquarium and chairlift — that Keune is opposed to bureaucracy and an isolated student government that does not reflect the opinions of students. Instead of feasible solutions, Keune’s focus is his message — students will be electing themselves if they elect him. That’s his rallying point, asking students to vote for him based on his average student appeal. Unlike most of his competitors, he has no background in student government, but he said this gives him a different insight into UNC. “He’s never been in student government before, so he isn’t coming from the viewpoint of a small student government minority,” said Stephen Estes, Keune’s campaign manager. Keune is editor-in-chief of the Carolina Review, a conservative student publication, although he

Medlin gets endorsement from student political groups
Members of the student political groups Young Democrats and the College Republicans both chose to endorse Hogan Medlin for student body president in candidate forums held on Monday night. In the College Republicans forum, approximately 40 students asked the candidates questions about the feasibility of platforms, experience in leadership positions and how they would deal with budget cuts, among other issues. Candidate gave overviews of their platforms and goals before the due-paying members voted to endorse Medlin. Despite serving as editor-in-chief of the conservative publication Carolina Review, Nash Keune was not selected for the endorsement. About 100 students attended the Young Democrats forum, where leaders of the group asked candidates questions about their community involvement, leadership experience and platforms. The attendees at the event voted to endorse Medlin after conducting a runoff between Medlin and candidate Shruti Shah.

With a platform that suggests re-naming Chapel Hill, constructing a chair lift from Davis Library to the Dean Dome and turning the first floor of Davis Library into a narwhal tank, student body president candidate Nash Keune is poking fun at the way student elections are run. While some students have STUDENT ELECTIONS questioned whether Keune 2010 is taking the election seriously, the junior economics and history major from Germantown, Md., is trying to portray himself as an atypical candidate for student body president. “I’m the maverick in this election,” Keune said. “Actually, I use that word way too much — I don’t want to go too rogue.” Keune ignores many of the ideas common to his competitors’ platforms, which focus on making

said his political views will not greatly affect his policies in office. “I probably won’t be invading Iran,” he said. “Although I can’t say for sure, I just can’t see that happening at this point.” Admitting that some of his platform points are “a bit radical,” he said they are meant to reflect the attitude of students who come from outside of student government. “I think that the platform represents the interests of the students, rather than the interests of the small minority in the student government establishment who have become disconnected from the life and concerns of the average student at Carolina,” he said. Christopher Jones, Keune’s chief of staff, wrote in an e-mail that students have already responded positively to Keune’s campaign. “In our planning meetings last

Congress committee talks about providing stipends
The rules and judiciary committee of Student Congress discussed a bill Monday that would establish stipends for the speaker and speaker pro tem, an issue that has proved divisive in the past. The committee voted to report the bill unfavorably to the full body for next week. Members will discuss it but take the recommendation into consideration. The bill would give the speaker a $200 per month stipend for one year. The pro tem would receive $125 per month. Members of the executive branch, including the student body president, vice president, treasurer and secretary already receive stipends. Executive branch officials said they hope the stipends will compensate the Congress officers for the significant amount of time those positions demand. Other schools in the UNC-system already have stipend systems in place. The stipends, if passed, would take effect next year.

Carrboro police ask for help after car break-ins increase
Carrboro police are reporting a recent uptick in the number of vehicle break-ins. Most of them happen because vehicles are unlocked with valuables exposed. Here are their tips for preventing a break-in of your car: n Roll up windows and lock doors, even if you’re parking at home. n Don’t leave valuables, including portable music devices, loose change, laptops and GPS units, in plain sight. n Park in lighted areas. n Report suspicious activity to 911. If you have information on any suspects for the recent break-ins, police request that you call (919) 918-7397 or CrimeStoppers anonymously at (919) 942-7515.

Keeping up with three professional dancers is not an easy task. But about 30 students took up the challenge Monday, following the fluid motions of the dancers from Ailey II. Ailey II, a branch of the New York-based Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, taught a master class in Gerrard Hall in its signature contemporary style. The one-and-a-half-hour class consisted of a warm-up and two routines. One Ailey II dancer choreographed and led the combination, while the other two dancers assisted in the demonstration. Robyn Levine, a junior, said she appreciated being taught something new. “I didn’t have much experience with that style of dance, so it was really challenging and fun to try something different,” she said. The class was a combination of modern and contemporary dance with certain

aspects of ballet technique. Ailey II is a company composed of young dancers who join in hopes of advancing to professional companies. They perform residencies at major universities as a part of a community outreach program. This master class is part of a new series of dance classes offered through UNC’s Office of the Executive Director for the Arts. Memorial Hall features performances from numerous styles of dance, and master classes are meant to be an extension of this experience. Students have the opportunity to practice the styles of dance themselves in class after viewing the performances. The classes are open to people of all skill levels. “The response to these classes has been positive, and I hope to offer a master class for each major company that performs at Memorial Hall this semester,” said Reed Colver, director of campus and community engagement.

Erin Hanehan, an intern with the Office of the Executive Director for the Arts, said that the master class option is a grassroots experiment this year. “Students will hear about the master classes through listservs and Facebook events and can sign up through an e-mail registration system,” Hanehan said. This was sophomore Missy Fournier’s first master class, but she said she would be interested in signing up for future classes. Colver said she hopes that the positive response will continue and that the master class series will continue into the fall semester. Monday was the third class offered in the series. “It is a rare opportunity for student dancers to work with professional dance companies, and this was an ideal situation where things came together perfectly,” Colver said.

Barack Obama wants to make it easier for students to get federal college aid from Uncle Sam. The president’s administration is working on simplifying the sometimes onerous Free Application for Federal Student Aid, the form that qualifies students for grants, loans and other forms of college aid. The form — filled out by 34,994 UNC students for the 2009-10 school year — has been cut in half for this year’s applicants, down to four pages from eight. It could be whittled down even further during the next two years. “They’re talking about taking the FAFSA down to just a handful of questions, maybe only five questions, to determine eligibility,” said Phil Asbury, deputy director of the UNC Office of Scholarships and Student Aid. Most financial aid offices require that students use the FAFSA to apply for aid, but the form’s complicated nature often discourages students from doing so. “Tax return data and income information can be a problem for people,” Asbury said. The form, designed to determine federal aid, is also used by states and colleges to determine their own funding programs, including the Carolina Covenant and other need-based aid programs. The president’s administration has argued that cutting the length of the form could encourage more students to apply for aid in the face of rising tuition costs. Asbury said that while most of the more dramatic proposals for altering the form are not finalized, they could have a significant impact on the nature of the application. “Every year the FAFSA is tweaked and revised,” Asbury said. “But the FAFSA simplification push may have a more significant impact on application numbers if the length of the form has been a deterrent.” The form, which can be printed and filled out or completed online, consists of four sections and a variety of questions that include income tax information. “What’s great about the FAFSA now is that online it skips questions that students don’t need to answer, which helps save a lot of confusion and time,” said Tabatha Turner, senior associate director of the Office of Scholarships and Student Aid. “Anything that can be done to break down barriers to access to student aid is a good thing.” But others say these changes are not enough. A study group convened by the College Board, a nonprofit group that provides testing and other admissions services, has argued for doing away with the FAFSA and restructuring the entire federal aid system. Freshman Ellen McNeill, who filled out the FAFSA when she applied last year, said it could benefit from simplification. “As for the process of filling out the form, it was tedious but straightforward,” she said.

Council postpones vote to raise taxes to fund library
A vote that would increase an average resident’s taxes by $39 a year was postponed Monday. The Chapel Hill Town Council decided unanimously to delay the vote on a proposed expansion to the town’s public library, against the recommendation of town manager Roger Stancil. The council will revisit the $16.5 million project after members discuss the issue with the Orange County Board of Commissioners. The expansion was planned to begin in July and would be finished in the fall of 2011. Council members were concerned about the use of the library by non-Chapel Hill residents, who do not pay taxes for its upkeep.

Top of the Hill opens bar, hall
top of the hill owner scott Maitland opened a new banquet hall and a new bar thursday adjacent to the current location. the Great room, the new banquet hall, was created after requests from customers who wanted a place to hold weddings and social events. it holds parties of 20 to 300. the Back Bar, the new bar that holds up to 225 people, has foosball and pool tables and serves caskconditioned ales, which are unfiltered beers. “it’s a throwback to how beer was made 100 years ago,” Maitland said. separately, top of the hill plans to open a new liquor distillery in late summer in the space previously occupied by the Chapel hill news. the liquor will be manufactured to distribute statewide.

Irish pub to open on Friday
Kildare’s, an irish pub that has several locations along the east Coast, will open friday, owner dave Magrogan said. the pub serves from a menu that includes a section titled “irish originals.” “(Chapel hill) is very similar to where our first Kildare’s was opened in west Chester,” Magrogan said. all staff members go through an intense fourweek training process when they are taught all there is to know about irish pub life and culture. Magrogan said construction costs were more than planned, especially since it is an older building at 206 west franklin st. at one point, the pub’s water main on franklin street collapsed, adding a significant cost to the project.

Late-night market now open
franklin street Market, which opened three weeks ago at 167 e. franklin st., is tekin Guler’s convenience store, though he said he has worked as a manager in many. Guler was forced to open the store three months late after running into conflicts with construction. during this time, he was paying rent on the space, which exhausted the money he could use to improve the look of the store, he said. the market is open until 2 a.m. sunday through wednesday and 3 a.m. thursday through saturday. Cigarettes are his most popular item, he said. “i just really want to make this place popular for the beer and then go from there,” Guler said when he planned to open, he hadn’t heard about the walgreens opening nearby.

New store recycles cartridges
Cartridge world, an australian franchise, opened two weeks ago in university square. the franchise came to the united states five years ago and now has more than 650 locations, including at least 18 in north Carolina. Owner Jason Beasley also owns a Cartridge world in durham by southpoint Mall. he chose to bring his new store to Chapel hill because there is a large market with the university, he said. he said customers can bring in their old cartridges, and employees fill them on the spot, Beasley said, emphasizing the store’s focus on recycling. he said the recession could help business because refilling recycled cartridges is cheaper. Beasley said business had been slow so far because many people hadn’t heard of the store.

The Daily Tar Heel

davis questionable yet again for tar Heels
Williams heightens practice intensity
BY mike ehrlich
senior Writer

When North Carolina enters the RBC Center tonight, it will be about as momentum-free as the team has been in a long time. Losers of each of their last three games, the Tar Heels dropped out of the top 25 for the first time since Jan. 2006. And now they might have to hit the road sans Ed Davis once again. Roy Williams said in a news conference Monday afternoon that unless the sophomore’s injured ankle makes “significant improvement” before the 9 p.m. tip-off against N.C. State, UNC’s best forward will be kept out of a second straight game. “If the game had been scheduled yesterday, I would not have played him,” Williams said. “He doesn’t feel good about planting the foot, pushing off and going sideways.” A depleted frontcourt could mean trouble, as the Tar Heel bigs will have to match up against junior Tracy Smith, who ranks sixth in the league in both scoring and rebounding and is second only to Davis in field goal percentage. “We know he’s a beast inside,” said freshman Travis Wear, who made

the tar heels may be without sophomore Ed Davis for a second straight game due to an ankle sprain.
his first career start in lieu of Davis Wednesday against Wake Forest. “We’re just going to have to move our feet and keep him in front of us, and try to keep him out of the paint.” UNC has had six days of rest after the 13-point loss to the Demon Deacons. They’ve used that time to get in what Wear called the two most intense practices this year. “At some dadgum time you’ve got to put your foot down and say, ‘I’m going to play better,’” Williams said. “And this ‘Woe is me,’ stuff, you’ve got to put a stop to that. “I can’t imagine any time I’ve been more involved, more into it, more enthusiastic, critical, vocal, whatever you can say, than I’ve been in practice since last Wednesday.” Over the weekend, practices have included a 30-minute scrimmage. And when mistakes were made, the players hit the baseline to run.

Freshman travis Wear stepped into davis’ role last week against Wake Forest in his first career start, recording 13 points and six rebounds.
“Just our competitiveness in practice the last two days,” Wear said. “We’ve just been going at each other’s throats and playing really hard.” They’ll need to bring the same intensity Tuesday night against a team that Williams said might not be quite as gifted, but is playing more together than in recent years. And he knows UNC needs to be at its best to climb out of this hole.

“Last year if we played very well, we were going to win,” Williams said. “And if we just played fairly well, we were going to win most of the time. “Well, we don’t have that luxury right now. But I know we don’t have a chance if we don’t play very well.” Contact the Sports Editor at sports@unc.edu.

Lucas, Heels battle back Freshman nets career night in win against n.C. state
BY LOuiE hOrvATh
Senior writer

Senior writer

RALEIGH — North Carolina entered Reynolds Coliseum on its most successful stretch ever against N.C. State. A staggering 17 of the past 19 contests had gone in the Tar Heels’ favor, yet with 12 minutes remaining in the second half, none of that seemed to matter. The Wolfpack were in the midst of extending their largest lead of the game to nine. And just moments before, NCSU’s Emili Tasler swished home another three-pointer. The crowd was in a frenzy as no one on UNC seemed willing to take any sort of coldblooded shot. Well, not quite. Moments later, junior Italee Lucas grabbed the ball at the top of the key and immediately netted a three-point attempt to begin a UNC rally that would give it an 81-69 win. “She made some tough shots, first of all,” N.C. State coach Kellie Harper said of Lucas. “We defended her well, and she was still able to score. We wanted to keep the ball out of her hands but were unable to do that.” From there, it was all Lucas — who scored 28 points in the second half — and all UNC. The first half was anything but peachy. UNC (16-3, 4-1 ACC) started off the game in miserable fashion, making just 31.4 percent of its attempts and managing to miss all seven shots from long range. But at halftime, something changed. “At halftime, I called the stats out,” UNC coach Sylvia Hatchell said. “They were not good. For Cetera (DeGraffenreid), for Italee or She’la

italee Lucas made up for a poor first half with 28 second-half points to lead no. 12 north Carolina to an 81-69 victory against rival n.C. State. WOMEN’S BASKETBALL UnC n.C. State 81 69

(White). I called them all out. I told them, ‘You gotta lead this team. You gotta pick up the tempo there.’ That made a big difference.” It certainly did. Especially with Lucas, who had missed all five of her shots in the first half. But after the Wolfpack (12-8, 2-3) started the second stanza with four straight points, Lucas responded with a jumper of her own and then some, to put it lightly. “The plays that we run get me the open look,” Lucas said. “Cetera being able to penetrate and kick. It’s the plays.” That may be, but by the 12:38 mark, Lucas had 15 points. Even then, it didn’t seem like she was truly feeling her stroke. With just under 11 minutes remaining, though, Lucas started sizzling. She cut into the lane for an off-

balance, scoop layup. On the next Tar Heel possession, she hit a fading jumper while going back into the UNC bench, closing North Carolina to within two, 54-52. Noticeable groans echoed throughout Reynolds. Harper bit her lip. The North Carolina bench whooped and hollered. A minute later, DeGraffenreid simply handed the ball to Lucas and jetted out of the way as another long jumper netted in. By game’s end, she had scored a career-high 33 points. The rest of the Tar Heels seemed to feed off Lucas’ performance, as DeGraffenreid scored 16 and freshman Waltiea Rolle chipped in 12 points. N.C. State crumbled late, and Harper suggested her team was forcing shots to keep pace with Lucas. “Italee got going, which made the difference,” Hatchell said. Contact the Sports Editor at sports@unc.edu.

RALEIGH — Chay Shegog was little more than a bystander in Monday’s game against N.C. State. After picking up her fourth foul shortly after halftime with UNC down seven, she sat with a towel draped over her shoulders — even taking part in a “Tar … Heels” chant after a timeout. It seemed that North Carolina would be forced to go the rest of the way without any interior presence. Enter Waltiea Rolle. Rolle’s play, which could have previously been described as raw, was every bit as important as Italee Lucas’ scoring bonanza in UNC pulling out an 81-69 win in a raucous Reynolds Coliseum. In 16 second-half minutes, Rolle amassed 10 points, six rebounds, and seven blocks. “This freshman is going to be a great player,” North Carolina head coach Sylvia Hatchell said. “She played a really solid game and made some big foul shots for us down the stretch.” Lucas combined with Rolle to score 34 of UNC’s first 36 secondhalf points. Rolle was also a force on the boards, nabbing eight total rebounds, including six offensive boards. Her most impressive rebound came when she missed a shot at the foul line, but was able to hustle to the rebound and put back her own miss to bring UNC within five. She even made free throws. Rolle entered the game shooting 58 percent from the charity stripe, but she knocked in six of her eight second-half free throws. This sudden development was emblematic of her all-around play on Monday. “It was big,” Hatchell said. “She’s had some really good games this year. If you look at her stats and percentages, she’s on track to be one of the best we’ve ever had. She’s just going to get better.”

UnC’s waltiea rolle filled up the box score with a monster second half. rolle finished with 12 points, eight rebounds and seven blocks.
On the defensive end, she was even more forceful. She used her 6-foot-6 frame and pterodactyllike wingspan to block shots and wreak havoc on N.C. State’s offense. Rolle’s career high in blocks entering the game sat at four, but she obliterated that in just one half, finishing with seven. “She affected a lot of our shots defensively, and I don’t think we took great shots,” N.C. State head coach Kellie Harper said. “She was really flying into the boards consistently and did a pretty good job from the foul line when we were fouling her. She was a huge

dth/Phong dinh

lift for them.” She had always been able to cause shooters problems with her length, but the real growth was in her ability to do it all while only fouling once. “She’s our safety back there,” Lucas said. It felt like every Wolfpack drive past a UNC defender ended with Rolle batting away a shot. “I was just the help,” Rolle said. “If they come driving into the lane, it’s mine. That’s just what I do.” Contact the Sports Editor at sports@unc.edu.

nCssM chancellor to retire
By Emily StEphEnSon
Senior Writer

National and World News
earthquake forces Haiti to reorganize
MONTREAL (MCT) — Rebuilding Port-au-Prince could take a decade or longer and ultimately completely reform the way Haiti is organized, foreign leaders said at a conference Monday. Haiti’s prime minister, JeanMax Bellerive, told envoys that the Jan. 12 earthquake crippled the entire country. In the future, he said, Haiti’s authority and its resources must be decentralized. Bellerive also passed along an appeal for immediate assistance. He said Haiti needs at least 200,000 tents for those left homeless by the earthquake.

After leading the N.C. School of Science and Mathematics through 10 years of changes, Chancellor Gerald Boarman announced Monday that he will retire at the end of the year. In a letter to faculty and students, Boarman said that he will leave the school July 31 in order to spend more time with his family. “I will continue to work relentlessly with you to see the school through a difficult budgetary process, selection of the incoming class and other challenges of the transition ahead,” Boarman’s letter stated. He led NCSSM through many changes, some of which — including the decision in 2006 to join the UNC system and the switch from the semester system to trimesters —

Gerald Boarman has overseen many changes to the school in his 10-year term as chancellor.
have been controversial. “A lot of people didn’t agree with a lot of the things he did,” said Gabriel Whaley, who served as NCSSM’s student body president during the 2007-08 school year. Boarman was chancellor in 2003 when the N.C. General Assembly created a grant that paid tuition for NCSSM students attending UNCsystem schools and when the legislature decided in 2009 to do away with it.

He was criticized in 2006 for a raise that elevated his salary above those of chancellors at six UNCsystem schools. Critics said administrative costs outpaced enrollment. But former students said Boarman will also be remembered for positives, such as creating a distance learning program, expanding the campus and focusing on safety. Cierra Hinton, now a UNC sophomore, said she met with Boarman several times as an NCSSM student. “You can’t really say Dr. Boarman has not helped to improve that school,” she said. “He’s one of the main reasons I’m here at Carolina. I’m very sad to see him go.” Contact the State & National Editor at stntdesk@unc.edu.

Obama launches programs aimed at helping the middle class recuperate
WASHINGTON, D.C (MCT) — Declaring that the middle class remains “under assault,” President Barack Obama proposed new federal help on Monday for child care, elder care, student loans and retirement. The proposals are part of Obama’s campaign to convince the country that he’s doing all he can to ease the economic anxiety he thinks is fueling a political backlash against his party. He’s expected to address those concerns in his first State of the Union speech Wednesday. Republicans called Monday’s proposals a publicity-seeking photo-op that would do nothing to create jobs. Obama suggested that his new proposals aren’t aimed so much at creating jobs now as they are at helping middle-class pocketbooks over the longer term. “Creating good, sustainable jobs is the single most important thing we can do to rebuild the middle class,” he said. “But we also need to reverse the overall erosion in middle class security so that when this economy does come back, working Americans are free to pursue their dreams again.”

Blue runs uncontested for GPsF president
By StEvEn norton
ASSiStAnt UniverSity editor

L a u r a B l u e ’s e x c i t e m e n t for becoming president of the Graduate and Professional Student Federation is especially noteworthy when you look at her competition. Nobody. Although few graduates have expressed interest in the job — the last contestSTUDENT ed election was ELECTIONS in 2006 — Blue 2010 said she thinks her enthusiasm and commitment to the job can provide a strong voice on a campus dominated by undergraduates. Blue said she hopes to promote

unity among graduate students, gain a larger student voice on University committees and eliminate inefficiencies. “I feel like there’s always something to learn from other people, so I like to get input from everyone without wasting time,” said the third-year doctoral student in the Department of Chemistry. If elected, she will represent graduate students within student government and in meetings with administrators. Blue wasn’t involved in student government as an undergraduate at Ohio Northern University but quickly became involved at UNC, serving as treasurer and public service chairwoman for the GPSF.

Laura Blue has served in other positions in GPSF and is now running uncontested for the top spot.
Given the change in leadership from year to year, Blue said she hopes to solidify a relationship between the student body president and the GPSF. “It varies from president to president what type of relationship is made, and it can really make or break graduate students’ voices,” Blue said. Graduate student commit-

ments, including doing research, teaching courses and taking care of families, sometimes make it difficult for students to get involved on campus. “I want to raise awareness that it doesn’t take a huge amount of time to do little things,” she said. Current GPSF President Keith Lee said it can be difficult for some students to balance academic and extracurricular activities. “This is a job essentially, but you’re also a student,” he said. “For a lot of people, there’s just not as much time to devote to activities outside those core things.” Emily Danforth, a representative in GPSF and Student Congress and a third-year doctoral student in

the Department of Sociology, said many student government events occur during inconvenient times and when parking options are limited, which could limit graduate involvement. Blue does an excellent job finding what people are good at and suggesting to them positions that fit their interests, Danforth said. Lee noted Blue’s knowledge of financial issues students face after serving two years as treasurer. “I’m very confident in her ability to carry forward the things that work and tweak the things that need to change,” he said.

Responsibilities of the Graduate and Professional Student Federation president:
Advise the student body president on graduate student issues. Preside over Graduate and Professional Student Federation meetings. represent graduate student interests on various boards, including the tuition and fees advisory task force and administrative search committees. represent graduate students in meetings with administrators.

Online room reservations see success Vicente Fox stresses
BY LYLe KendricK Staff writer
Student organizations were able to reserve Student Union activity space Monday without the use of sleeping bags, pillows and ghost stories. All it took was the click of a mouse. For the first time, the process of reserving the more than 70 activity spaces overseen by the Student Union was completed fully online, and administrators and group leaders said it went off without any major issues. Before the Union implemented the new system, students had to wait in line the night before registration began to ensure they got a room. The Union introduced online registration from 9 a.m. until noon Monday and received positive responses, along with 2,116 bookings for Union rooms and classrooms this fall and general purpose classrooms this spring. Don Luse, director of the Carolina Union, said the new system was a response to complaints from student organizations and a request from the Carolina Union Board of Directors to look into changing the process. “Things that people used to have to stand in line to do had been completed by 11 o’clock,” Luse said. Lee Storrow, co-president of the UNC Young Democrats, said the online system was more efficient than the previous system. “It was just easier for our organization,” he said. “We reserved rooms this morning, and we didn’t have to invest in people spending the night in the Union.”

rabbi Ben Packer, right, meets Monday with erika Bozeman, events manager at the events planning office in the Student Union, to reserve classroom space. Monday marked the first day to reserve classrooms online.
John Eick, chairman of the UNC College Republicans, said he agreed the new process made reserving activity space less of a hassle. “It was convenient to be able to register in my room instead of getting out of bed,” he said. Another change to the process was combining the registration date for classrooms for this semester with the registration for all Union-controlled rooms next semester. Union staff said the only issue was the tendency for students to not complete the entire online application, said Joe Singer, the assistant director of events man-

agement for the Union. Luse said the Union will wait until it receives more responses from organizations before deciding whether they will make further changes to the process. Contact the University Editor at udesk@unc.edu.

As president of Mexico, Vicente Fox was known for preferring his trademark open-neck shirt, black leather boots and name-bearing belt buckle to more presidential attire. Before a capacity crowd in the Koury Auditorium of the KenanFlagler Business School, Fox tossed aside his typical outfit in favor of a gray suit. But the wardrobe decision did not come at the expense of the charisma that propelled him to victory in the 2000 presidential election, as his speech to the UNC community was bookended by standing ovations. Fox received $42,500 from the Van and Kay Weatherspoon endowment to deliver this year’s Weatherspoon Lecture, which has hosted figures such as magazine editor Steve Forbes and Washington Post journalist Bob Woodward. The speech, titled “Surveying the Geo-Political Landscape,” touched on the need for nations across the globe to become unified to overcome pressing challenges. The speech specifically addressed the relationship between Mexico and the United States with regard to immigration, drug trafficking and free trade. Fox, whose grandfather migrated to Mexico from the United States, opened the lecture by voicing his support for Mexican immigrants. “They are real heroes, incomprehensible heroes,” Fox said. But the majority of the speech highlighted the value of developing partner-

ships, such as the North American Free Trade Agreement. “Instead of building walls, let’s build bridges,” Fox said, referring to both U.S. immigration policy and free trade. Fox, championed for strengthening Mexico’s democracy after ousting the 71-year rule of the Institutional Revolutionary Party, also stressed the value of democracy. Cathy Ospina, a senior Latin American studies and anthropology major, said she did not agree with Fox’s analysis of his administration. “I didn’t agree about what he said about his party and how they saved the country because they agree with the PRI on almost every issue,” she said. Paul Cuadros, journalism professor and author of “A Home on the Field,” a book about coaching a high school soccer team composed mostly of Latino immigrants, said Fox was correct in his attitude against the policy requiring illegal immigrants in North Carolina to pay out-of-state tuition. “I think he was spot on in terms of if there is one set of doors that should be open to everyone, it should be the schoolhouse doors,” he said. After the question and answer session, the former Mexican president reinforced his message of partnership, inviting the audience to his hometown of San Cristobal. “We will receive you at home with a bottle of tequila,” Fox said.

Siren Test Today
The University will test the sirens and text messages Tuesday, January 26 between noon and 1 PM. No action is required since it's just a test. But you need to know what to do in an actual emergency.

SIRENS SOUND ONLY IN A LIFE-THREATENING EMERGENCY
• An armed and dangerous person is on or near campus. • A major chemical spill or hazard has been reported. • A tornado has been sighted.

WHAT TO DO
• Go inside immediately. • Close windows and doors. • Stay until further notice.

In an emergency, sirens will also broadcast short voice messages. When the threat is over, the sirens will sound again with a different tone to announce: “All clear. Resume normal activities.” If the sirens sound, you’ll also receive an emergency text message if you signed up. These are just two ways UNC communicates in an emergency. See alertcarolina.unc.edu for details.

The Daily Tar Heel

Movies UNC should watch to escape early ACC ‘hangover’

B

y now, most of you have heard North Carolina coach Roy Williams’ newest Roy-ism. After Wednesday’s 82-69 loss to Wake Forest, Williams compared this season’s struggles to those of his first year at Kansas, when the Jayhawks went through a stretch in which they lost eight in a row. “I’m bringin’ the dadgum guys in Friday night, watchin’ Hoosiers, Rocky III, making bologna sandwiches,” Williams remembered mandating for the Kansas team. “If I have to start frickin’ doin’ that, I’m experienced at it right now.” Hoosiers? Rocky III? C’mon,

their competitive juices flowing:

the notebook
The story: Boy meets girl. They get separated and everything falls apart, only to reunite and find love once again. brandon staton n The Tar Heels meet star at the buzzer recruit (John Wall) at basketball camp. It’s love at first sight, a some of these guys weren’t even match made in heaven. born when those movies came n  UNC goes off to Detroit, out. That got me thinking: I wonder and said recruit falls in love with another university. All seems lost. which movies Williams would n Williams feasts his eyes on pull out of the vault to help hype his Heels before tonight’s game at Harrison Barnes, and his heart flutters all over again. N.C. State University. Williams’ message: It’s not OK Here are a few that could get

for men to cry! Regardless of how grim the past has been, pick your head up and look toward tonight!

the Curious Case of benjamin button
The story: Fresh out of the womb, a baby boy seems oddly old. As things unfold, everyone sees that he is aging backwards. n The 2009-10 Tar Heels are born. They’re young, but somehow their No. 6 preseason ranking makes them seem older. n  They keep winning, and their curious case turns heads after a convincing win against then-No. 9 Michigan State.

n Then, the next game, something doesn’t seem right. UNC loses to Kentucky, and things become obvious, as the Tar Heels look younger and younger. Williams’ message: It doesn’t matter whether we’re going forward or backward. We’ve got to hit our prime sometime!

the Hangover
The story: The guys live one night on top of the world, then spend the next day piecing it all together. n It seems like yesterday that the Tar Heels were cutting down the nets. A party like no other

ensues. They wake up this year wondering what happened. n  Tigers startle them. Georgia Tech knocks their teeth out. Former heavyweight Wake Forest lands an uppercut right on their chin. n Team is so young that: “None of us could remember anything from last night. Remember?” Williams’ message: Wait … I just remembered that I have our last five games against the Wolfpack on tape! Looks like we were 5-0 in those games and that we outscored NCSU by 90 overall!

successfully that officers violated his clients’ Fourth Amendment rights, which protect them from unlawful searches and seizures. “The pendulum has swung back.” September numbers for underage alcohol consumption and possession tickets were about four times higher than those from 2008. By December, however, ticket numbers had fallen to about half of the same month’s from last year. Suczynski said he has taken on dozens of cases this fall, more than he has ever seen in three years in Chapel Hill. Part of the pressure to ramp up alcohol law enforcement last fall came from community groups like the Coalition for Alcohol and Drug Free Teenagers of Chapel Hill and Carrboro, which has secured two grants worth about $100,000 each to combat underage drinking. Some of that money went to Chapel Hill’s new alcohol law enforcement task force, ALERT, as part of what District Attorney Jim Woodall called “a new emphasis” on underage drinking. “I do think that the attention given to the issue is something that is on law enforcement’s radar screen,” said coalition member and retired superior court judge Ryan Bogle. “They devote their resources to areas where there are concerns within a community.” Busting big parties often leads officers to “jump to the next step” before finding probable cause that underage drinking is going on, Woodall said. “Whenever there are four officers, and let’s say there’s 50 people at a party, each officer essentially has a dozen people to account for,” he said. “That’s what makes it real tough. They have to make real quick decisions when they’re dealing with overwhelming numbers.” Woodall added that people have always challenged alcohol cases, and the recent decisions are not affecting policy in the district attorney’s office. One case dismissed last week focused on an ALERT police team that entered the Warehouse apartments on Rosemary Street without a warrant in September. Originally responding to noise complaints, the ALERT squad did not allow students to leave the scene that night, asking them to “prove” their innocence by submitting to a Breathalyzer test, according to a defense motion and police

video of the event. Defense documents state that one officer jammed his foot in an apartment door to prevent a student from closing it and told her, “You are not going back into your apartment unless I go with you.” “The enforcement method that apparently has been adopted is one that we haven’t seen in other areas of the criminal law,” said Chapel Hill attorney Steve Bernholz, who represented two students charged in the Warehouse incident. “It’s a Fourth Amendment issue. When you round up students who have been raised to be truthful and cooperate with police, you have essentially corralled them often without any reasonable suspicion.” Suczynski’s case was dismissed on the grounds that police had detained the entire party, about 50 students, without reasonable suspicion and probable cause for everyone in attendance. On the night of the party, police responding to a noise complaint on McDade Street arrived at the scene and asked everyone in the house to come outside, according to defense documents. Anyone who tried to flee was pursued, caught and brought back. Police then asked, by show of hands, who was 21 and had been drinking. “It felt very forced,” said one student who was charged at the party, but accepted a guilty plea bargain instead of fighting the misdemeanor charge in court. She was granted anonymity for this story because she plans to get the charges expunged. “There’s only one way in and one out, and there were five police cars.” Though more students are challenging their tickets than in the past, police say they have not fine-

tuned their policy in response to this fall’s cases. Matthew Sullivan, a Chapel Hill police crisis counselor and legal adviser, said he was not aware of any departmental meetings to address alcohol citation policy. “It’s our obligation to respond to the courts,” Sullivan said, though he declined to discuss policy on a general or case-by-case basis. While the number of citations skyrocketed this fall, the consequences of the charges also became more weighty. Taking a plea bargain, or deferred prosecution, in exchange for the charges later being expunged often doesn’t wipe the slate clean, said Dorothy Bernholz, an attorney at UNC’s Student Legal Services and Steve Bernholz’s wife. An increasing number of employers and schools are asking applicants to list any charges expunged from their record, though state statues do not legally require applicants to answer that question, she said. “It’s not uncommon for the police when they’re in the process of charging the student to say, ‘Don’t worry about this. It’s minor, and I’m sure it’ll be dismissed if you talk to the DA,” Steve Bernholz said. “But expungement doesn’t really solve the problem these days.” The decision to hire a lawyer, however, can be an expensive one. The student charged at the McDade party said she took a bargain because her parents didn’t want to pay for an attorney without a guarantee the case would be dismissed. “It’s purely punitive,” Dorothy Bernholz said. “It’s not an educational process.” Contact the City Editor at citydesk@unc.edu.

UNC was ranked No. 6 in the Associated Press poll. Now the team is unranked after losing three straight games. “On a day-to-day basis, our cash register sales are down,” Dedmond said. Of course, the losses are coming in the wake of a national championship year, which makes for a harder transition. Hudson said for the national championship last season, he hired more workers who worked more hours. “My mother even came in to help,” he said. Even with declining sales, Carolina gear stores are in no real financial danger. Heather Frazier of Johnny T-shirt said her business has not yet experienced a decrease in sales, because the usual customers continue to come by. “I have seen the same people for eight seasons now,” she said. The wins from the 2005 and 2009 national championships each accounted for half a million dollars in sales, according to UNC’s Trademarks and Licensing division. But it’s too early to compile numbers from this season, said Derek Lochbaum, director of trademarks and licensing. Despite the basketball team’s performance this season, Lochbaum said that the school will probably not experience a large decrease in revenue. “Athletic success always helps, but UNC has a very mature trademark and licensing program,” Lochbaum said. “We don’t experience large swings in revenue that other schools may experience with wins and losses.” Contact the City Editor at citydesk@unc.edu.

engage in foreign policy dialogue
statesman once said, “No foreign policy — no matter how ingenious — has any chance of success if it is born in the minds of a few and carried in the hearts of none.” Great Decisions, a program led and taught by undergraduates on UNC’s campus for more than two decades, embodies this idea by encouraging our generation to analyze and engage major global issues. The program provides a collaborative setting to foster a vibrant intellectual climate on campus through an eight-part speaker series covering some of today’s most pertinent global topics. Each lecture is then followed by intimate discussion forums. With every speaker, a member of Great Decisions will write insightful and informative columns on these topics, highlighting the connections to our community. The increasing connection between our daily lives and these issues is tangible and evident. As the world becomes more interconnected, the necessity and the means to stay informed and involved have only intensified. Two weeks ago, the world watched in horror as Haiti faced a terrible humanitarian crisis after being hit by a 7.0-magnitude earthquake. In peace-building and humanitarian efforts, the international community confronts the reality that much of the devastation has been perpetuated by the shortcomings of the international community’s policies on peacekeeping and infrastructure development. Haiti’s story is hardly unique. Failed states and the growing consequences of the limited effectiveness of international organizations cannot be ignored. In April, UNC professor Georges Nzongola-Ntalaja will discuss peacekeeping in the Congo, sharing lessons that can be applied to the hot-button states of Somalia, Afghanistan, Myanmar and even Haiti. Even closer to home, the now infamous “underwear bomber,” Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, focused international attention on Yemen, a country many Americans could not place on a map prior to the incident. While poverty-ridden Yemen has garnered significant media attention in recent weeks, it has long been mired in internal conflict that has developed a regional dimension, contributing to the instability that has created a comfortable base for al-Qaida and the proliferation of extremism. In March, ex-CIA analyst Michael Scheuer will share insight from his experiences serving as former chief of the CIA Counterterrorist Center’s Osama Bin Laden tracking unit. Great Decisions will host compelling speakers throughout the semester, ranging from scholars to diplomats, including Daniel Kurtzer, a prominent architect of American policy on the Middle East peace process and Bruce Bagley, a leading expert on drug trafficking between Latin America and the United States. We no longer live in a world where foreign policy and global relations rest in the hands of elites; ideas must be exchanged by the broader public for policies to be successfully implemented. We urge the entire UNC community to become a part of these conversations, where the impassioned and innovative idea of today can be the solution with global implications tomorrow.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
Students do pay for tickets with yearly athletic fees
TO THE EDITOR: In his letter to the editor “Students paying for many bad decisions with tickets,” (Jan. 25), Tom Hicks, UNC ’78, ended with: “My seats are in the upper deck, along with many of the student seats, but there are two huge differences. I have to pay for my tickets, and I actually show up for every game.” Hicks’ assertion is incorrect. We do pay for our tickets. The student athletic fee is $265 this academic year. Over four years, each student pays about $1,000 for the privilege of entering the lottery to get basketball tickets along with entry to other sporting events. Mr. Hicks should be grateful that he has a choice about whether or not he wants to pay for his tickets. We’re forced to pay, whether we want to spend our money on athletic tickets or not. Myself, I’d rather have $1,000 less in student loans or just buy tickets to the games I wanted to go to. Andy Pennock Graduate Student Political Science

‘Miss angie’ seems nice, but was not doing her job
TO THE EDITOR: I felt sure I would be siding with the nice yet wistful looking lady pictured on Monday’s front page (“‘Miss Angie’ missed,” Jan. 25). I’m no fan of corporate greed or bureaucratic indifference. So I thought I knew where the article was going. But somehow I never got to that point. Ms. Vargas seems like a sweet woman, a nice lady and an outgoing person. She also seems dedicated to making her workspace a better place for herself and her customers. It’s a good story. But looking at the rest of the story, couldn’t it also be that Ms. Vargas was terminated because she came to work late, disobeyed workplace policy and took unscheduled breaks? I admit, it is tempting to lay blame for her plight at the feet of evil bureaucrats and a corporate environment that stifled her creativity. But doesn’t it seem as reasonable to assume that, rather than being “punished for calling corporate,” Ms. Vargas was punished for multiple violations of her workplace’s policy? I feel badly for Ms. Vargas, and I hope that she does well at school. But the story reads to me like the story of a nice lady who was fired because she did not follow the rules of her workplace.

Smile, you’re on camera
Installing dashboard cameras in police cars will help to provide an infallible record of incidents

T

he decision by the Orange County Board of Commissioners to outfit more sheriff ’s office vehicles with dashboard cameras addresses an important need for public safety and officer accountability. Dashboard cameras can often provide crucial evidence that officer and witness testimony cannot. Yet disturbingly, only one dashboard camera currently exists in the entire fleet of sheriff ’s office patrol vehicles. Now, there will be 51. The board’s approval allows for the purchase of 50 new cameras for $295,700. Better still, all of the money comes from grants, which do not have to be repaid. Two relatively recent cases illustrate this point and the

need for increased dashboard cameras. The first example is the tragic death of junior Courtland Smith, president of the Delta Kappa Epsilon fraternity. Dashboard camera video captured events just prior to and immediately after the moment police said Archdale Police Department officer Jeremy Paul Flinchum shot and killed Smith. Although a Randolph County judge has ruled not to release this evidence, the dashboard camera video almost certainly sheds greater light on the murky details surrounding this tragedy. The second example is this past summer’s confrontation between Chapel Hill police and local business

owner Charles Brown. Brown was temporarily detained — although innocent — due to a case of mistaken identity by the officers. Brown and the officers disagreed about the nature of the detainment and its length. Brown claimed he was treated poorly and held for almost an hour by the officers. An internal review by the town found no wrongdoing on the part of the officers. Mo r e i m p o r t a n t l y, t h e review suggested more dashboard cameras, saying they “would provide protection that would benefit both officers and citizens.” Both officers and the people they confront are fallible. The objective lens of a dashboard camera serves to keep both parties accountable.

Student government to hold forum on celebrations
TO THE EDITOR: Since the beginning of this summer, student government has been working on a plan to enhance celebrations on Franklin Street. These celebrations are among students’ most memorable Carolina experiences, and we want to make sure they’re as memorable as they can be. However, we want to make sure those memories are of UNC chants, not UNC Hospitals. After the championship game last April, two students were arrested, 10 were taken to UNC Hospitals and 16 more were treated for on-site injuries. The town and University split the more than $200,000 cost to clean up the street afterward. We don’t believe that fun and safety are mutually exclusive, and with a little creativity and some student input, we can find ways to increase both. Our ultimate goal is to find ways to enhance these celebrations with alternatives to fire and town destruction, and this is where we need students’ help. What would you like to do on Franklin after a big win? We’d like to have a DJ, put up screens showing playbacks of the game and hit around an absurd quantity of beach balls. But we need to hear from you, too. Come out to our town hall forum this Wednesday, Jan. 27, at 7 p.m. in the Union Auditorium. We w i l l h av e p a n e l i s t s from student government, the Carolina Athletic Association, Student Affairs, UNC Hospitals and the Department of Public Safety there to answer questions about the celebration plans and to hear students voice their own ideas for enhancing Franklin Street celebrations. Jasmin Jones Student Body President

young people these days don’t have any respect
TO THE EDITOR: UNC students should count themselves lucky that they receive a single ticket within stone-throwing distance from the basketball court. During my years at UNC or, as we called it, the University of Diggity Carolina (“north” was still a dirty word back then), the 107 suspender-clad residents of East building passed around a single radio to hear Abbott “Crispy” McSwainington call the games. You were fortunate to hear a continuous 30 seconds of gameplay. Kids these days have no appreciation for the rules, and students are getting what they deserve for listening to their jazz music and having relations before being married for at least 15 years. I was on what you (obviously jokingly) refer to as the “University campus” the other day, and I swear you couldn’t throw a hoop that one uses a stick to push without hitting a girl wearing pants! I became so aroused that I immediately came home and yelled at my wife for making corn on the cob again. Seriously? Corn on the cob? I’m 90 years old! I can’t eat that. Chris Castro-Rappl Senior Communications Studies CORRECTION: Due to an editing error in Monday’s column, “Baobao trees, red tape — c’est la vie,” the study abroad columnist’s name was spelled incorrectly. The columnist’s name is Nick Andersen, not Anderson. The Daily Tar Heel apologizes for the error.

Tutors reign supreme
local school program that seeks to increase educational achievement among minorities is a great way to get involved in the community. The Blue Ribbon MentorAdvocate program, which began in 1995, is provided through Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools and currently has more than 100 mentors. These volunteers spend two hours per week providing oneon-one visits with the mentee for a minimum of two years. The purpose of the program is to provide these students with the academic and personal support they might be lacking. Most of the students are from low-income families and more than half of them are from sin-

Mentoring program has seen great success, is an example of positive involvement in education
gle-parent households. The students are selected because they have some untapped potential in an academic, social, physical or other area. What makes this program unique and impressive is that mentors invest more time into their mentees than in more traditional programs. Although individual volunteers are only asked to stay with the student for two years, the program seeks to provide mentors for the student from fourth grade until high school graduation. In fact, 60 percent of students involved in the program have had the same mentor from fourth grade until graduation. T he program’s success speaks for itself. More than 95 percent of students enrolled in the program have graduated from high school, and of that group, all of them have enrolled in post-secondary education. Students, teachers or anybody looking to get more involved within the community should take a serious look at this program. The program’s success has demonstrated what an impact a few hours a week can have in the lives of underprivileged youth.
