Public Safety departments — most of whom have job descriptions not tailored to snow response. “It’s a team effort,” said Richard Terrell, operations manager of the Public Works department. “We utilize those with experience as drivers.” Thirty Parks and Recreation employees are working overtime and will continue through Wednesday, said Butch Kisiah, Parks and Recreation director. “Getting people to work wasn’t really a problem. Guys know that’s probably the job,” he said. “Some guys were so iced in, though, that we

The University might have delayed classes Monday morning, but town employees were working hard to clear the streets after the weekend’s snowstorm. The cleaning process included dozens of workers in overtime hours from at least four town departments. Members of the Street Maintenance division, who typically clean roads, operated the snow-clearing equipment. They got help from workers in the Parks and Recreation, Public Works, Solid Waste and

actually sent folks out to pick them up.” Parks and Recreation employees knew they were expected to work from Friday through the weekend, Kisiah said. Workers are using 10 snow plows, five motor graders and four box spreaders to clear the routes that were mapped as unsafe. The street-cleaning operation was primarily funded out of the streets division and was the biggest cost, with sidewalk clearing as secondary. Town spokeswoman Catherine Lazorko said

The student body president has always faced difficulties when it comes to tuition — namely balancing student interests with UNC’s fiscal needs. But next year’s chief student representative could face greater challenges than usual. This year, the student body president and vice president advocated for the lower of two tuition proposals favored by administrators, a suggestion supported by many students and adopted by the Board of Trustees. But administrators have warned against the long-term impact STUDENT of comparatively low ELECTIONS tuition on the quality 2010 of the University. Some said next year’s student body president will face greater pressure to raise tuition in light of fiscal difficulties. “We look to the student body president to help us craft a solution to meet the needs of the University, while taking into account the opinions of the students,” said Bob Winston, chairman of the Board of Trustees. “They bring the perspective of the students to the board, and that’s something that’s hard for us to get,” Winston said. “We don’t live on campus and we aren’t out and about every day. We are interested to hear from the students when we look at what our needs are.” The student body president represents

The chancellor then considers the task force’s proposal and makes a recommendation to the Board of Trustees, of which the student body president is a voting member and the only student representative. Tuition supports need-based financial aid, student academic services, course offerings, faculty retention and graduate student awards. Shirley Ort, director of scholarships and student aid, said the student body president has a tough assignment when it comes to tuition. “They are in a difficult position in the sense they have two loyalties — one, to be an advocate to the students, but also to their fiduciary responsibilities as a trustee,” she said. “Most of us here, as administrators, have one loyalty — to the needs of the University. And we do what we believe is in the best interest of the University, but students really look to the student body president to be their advocate.” Trustee John Ellison said he’s concerned this year’s tuition decision could have a long-range impact on the school, something next year’s student body president will deal with. “It is pretty much a given that there are going to be more budget cuts that Chapel Hill will have to endure,” he said. “For one year or two years, you can choose low tuition without

Winston Crisp said he believes budget concerns and health issues are the two most important areas he will address as the new vice chancellor connecting students and administrators. Crisp used an open house Monday to introduce himself to students and answer their questions. Winston Crisp He said one of his biggest will lead the concerns is subdivision of stance abuse. student affairs “I continue starting May 16. to believe that the significant abuse of alcohol and other drugs is one of the biggest threats to universities today,” he said. Crisp, who described himself as a supporter of Greek life, also addressed this year’s examination of the Greek system. “There are aspects of the Greek community that need to change, and I’m not going to pretend that that’s not the case,” he said. Crisp used the same lighthearted tone Monday talking about the basketball team’s recent woes as he did discussing budget issues and substance abuse. While he is a physically imposing man at 6 feet, 4 inches with a linebacker’s build, he put student government officers and other students at ease with his easy smile and jovial attitude during the open house in the Student Union. Crisp, who currently serves as the assistant vice chancellor for student affairs, is replacing Margaret Jablonski in May as vice chancellor for student affairs. He has been a part of the University community since he attended law school at UNC 18 years ago. In his new role, Crisp will lead the division of student affairs, the administrative department that oversees many aspects of student life, including the Campus Y, the Student Union, campus housing, Campus Health Services and University Career Services. In his new role, Crisp will oversee a budget of more than $80 million. “We really have to get back to the basics of what is it that matters to us, what is necessary,” he said. “We’re going to have to make some tough decisions.” Student Body Vice President David Bevevino said he has confidence in Crisp’s ability to act as an effective liaison between the student body and the administration. “I think that he’s going to do a fantastic job,” he said.

Roy Williams sits at a midweek press conference early this season in the Smith Center, answering questions about collegiate athletics. “If we play one fewer home game, it affects field hockey, it affects baseball, it affects everything we do here,” Williams said. Williams’ statement was in response to a potential shortening of the college basketball schedule, but his overarching point is true as well: Non-revenue sports depend on men’s basketball and football for funding.

out-of-state student group endorses hardin for SBp
The Out-of-State Students Association endorsed Monique Hardin for student body president after conducting a forum on Monday night. The group’s president, Ryan Morgan, said Hardin offered an “interesting blend of experience, professionalism and a willingness to listen to out-of-state students,” in describing the group’s reason for picking her. All the presidential candidates were in attendance at the forum with the exception of Nash Keune. However, Keune did show up early at the BoUNCe forum, held immediately after the Outof-State Students Association forum. He gave no response to why he did not attend the earlier forum. Many other groups will hold forums for the student body president candidates between now and the election. Visit student-body-elections for more information.

Federal funding for research projects will continue despite President Barack Obama’s efforts to reduce the federal budget deficit, Chapel Hill’s representative in Congress said Monday. U.S. Rep. David Price, D-N.C., said during an informal presentation in Gerrard Hall that the president and Congress are committed to protecting research, which he said is one of North Carolina’s major competitive advantages. “We are dealing with some real budget challenges,” Price said. “These things will receive at least moderate increases.” Price said research, which has benefited greatly in the last year from federal stimulus funds, brings jobs and contributes to the state’s economic development.

The Chapel Hill-based congregation’s membership has doubled in the last four years to about 200 members, leading to a need for more space, according to a church news release. The church entered into a lease agreement with Extraordinary Ventures to use the facility for Sunday worship programs. Christ Community, affiliated with the Presbyterian Church in America, previously met at Rashkis Elementary School.

Blue cross Blue Shield of n.c. cEo steps down monday
The CEO of Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina, the state’s largest health insurer, retired Monday, the Associated Press reported. Bob Greczyn spent 11 years as president and CEO. Under his tenure, annual revenues tripled and membership almost doubled to 3.7 million. He will be succeeded by Brad Wilson, who is also a member of the UNC-system Board of Governors. He has been with the company since 1995. —From staff and wire reports.

When applying to colleges, freshman Lawson Kuehnert created a portfolio of the coursework he completed during his high school career as a home-schooled student. He had to take that extra step because college admissions officials questioned his readiness for the academic vigor of a college workload. But Kuehnert went through no additional measures when applying to UNC. “Chapel Hill was probably the easiest of all the schools I applied to,” Kuehnert said. “I sent in my application and my materials, and that was that.” UNC is different from many academic institutions in that it does not require an additional step in the application process, which some home-schooled students said makes the school more attractive. Stephen Farmer, director of undergraduate admissions at UNC, said the regular application is adequate for home-schooled students to demonstrate their qualifications.

“We don’t feel comfortable at all imposing additional requirements on students who are homeschooled,” Farmer said. But he added that the University does encourage home-schooled applicants to exceed the minimum requirements. “It’s helpful for home-schooled students to send more than one recommendation and by people who are not related,” he said. Tom Abeyta, associate director of admissions at Oberlin College, a school of about 2,200 students in Ohio, said the school’s office of admissions requires homeschooled students to take two additional SAT subject tests, complete an interview and create an academic portfolio in addition to their regular application. “We want them to convey what they’ve been able to do since they’ve not taken the traditional route of public or private school,” Abeyta said. He added that smaller schools look at home-schooled applicants differently than large public schools. “The process can be a little more automated, since they might not have the staffing or time,” Abeyta said. “Smaller, more selective schools do tend to take the time to read through essays.”

But many elite public schools require home-schooled students to take additional steps. The College of William & Mary and Miami University of Ohio both require home-schooled applicants to submit a supplement to the Common Application designed for home-school students. Farmer said UNC cannot make a statement regarding the performance of home-schooled students because their population is a small portion of the University and includes several different backgrounds. UNC enrolled 92 home-schooled students from 2006-09. Seventeen enrolled in the fall. Farmer said the University has been accepting more home-schooled students this past decade partially because more have been applying. He added that home-schooled students typically have a positive experience at UNC because their education creates the necessity for independent work. “Since I’ve kind of trained myself to do that, it’s not been a problem,” said Sarah Edwards, a freshman from Davidson who was homeschooled. “Personally, I did not have trouble transitioning at all.”

Carrboro poet laureate draws on haiku history
aims to promote verse in the town
By amanda RuEhlEn
SeniOr Writer

DTH ONLINE: read three of Jay Bryan’s poems with this story at ironic that Bryan is the new poet laureate; he proposed the role in 2002. Bryan got the idea after researching communities across the nation that had a poet laureate. Bryan said Carrboro might be the first community in North Carolina with its own poet laureate. He said Hillsborough established one several years later, and some have pushed for Orange County to have its own. Many states have a governorappointed poet laureate. The N.C. General Assembly created the state poet laureate position in 1935, but the position wasn’t filled until 1948. Rebecca Moore, spokeswoman for the N.C. Arts Council, credited the trend of local poet laureates to the state’s literary heritage. “It is a function of the rich literature and the number of outstanding writers in our community,” she said. Bryan said he conceived the Carrboro poet laureate as a flexible position with few requirements. Helvey said this freedom allows

A former Carrboro Alderman with a self-published book of haikus makes for a rare combination. But that’s Jay Bryan, an alderman from 1987 to 1997 who was selected last week to serve as Carrboro’s fifth poet laureate, a role that promotes poetry in the community. He said poetry serves as an escape from the disputes he hears practicing family law. “It creates a moment in time where people who are listening can be drawn away from their own particular situations,” said Bryan, a 35-year resident of Carrboro. He once wrote a poem for a local judge that described a case in order to bring some issues to light. But he said law only inspires him to a certain degree. He describes his work as spontaneous — like the piece about frogs in his pond that he submitted with his poet laureate application. Jackie Helvey, a member of the Contact the University Editor at Carrboro Arts Committee, said it is

Project seeks to curb violent crime in area
Plan has lessened o≠enses elsewhere
staff writer

Housing rules up for debate
By KElly PoE
staff writer

North Carolina recorded nearly 44,000 incidents of violent crime in 2008, ranking it 10th out of all states. It’s one of the numbers police officials are hoping to curb with a program that’s in its early stages. Project Safe Orange, established in Orange County last May, is an offshoot of a national initiative called Project Safe Neighborhoods, which aims to lessen the impact of local gun violence. Project officials will hold an awareness meeting today at 2 p.m. in Hillsborough. The meeting will identify volunteers who want to get involved with the program, said Sgt. Jabe Hunter of the Chapel Hill Police Department. “We’re trying to broaden our base of community support in the northern part of the county,” he said. Since former President George W. Bush created Project Safe Neighborhoods in 2001, communities across the country have focused on how to curb gun violence. Even with turnover in the presidential administration, the national neighborhoods campaign continues to make progress and is now making strides in the Chapel Hill area.

According to a research report submitted to the U.S. Department of Justice, other N.C. cities have seen a decrease in the average number of monthly firearm offenses since the project was instituted. Durham’s rate dropped by almost eight offenses per month, from 76.75 to 68.9 offenses. And Greensboro’s dropped from about 70 offenses per month to 57, the report says. Data on Orange County gun violence has not been finalized. Project Safe Orange held its first notification session last August. During that session, program volunteers educated former violent offenders in the area about local and federal gun laws and told them of the community’s desire to end gun violence. Program assistant Tenesha Robinson said they are trying to help those who have violent tendencies or criminal histories by offering resources such as housing and employment — especially difficult in a low-opportunity job market. Hunter said 12 violent offenders attended the first session, some of whom were required by law to attend. But at least five of those who attended responded positively

to the session, Hunter said. The next session will be held Feb. 18 in Hillsborough. “We’re just trying to establish the program now, but in the long term I think it will be a big influence in the community,” Robinson said. Project Safe Orange has partnered with UNC-Greensboro and Winston Salem State University to conduct research and collect data on violent occurrences, Hunter said. “Knock on wood, we haven’t seen some of the violence that neighboring jurisdictions have,” he said.

With the average home in Chapel Hill costing $342,000, town officials are worried about the lack of affordable housing options. “A lot of the workforce cannot afford to live in Chapel Hill because it’s just so expensive,” council member Gene Pease said. The public can attend an informational meeting tonight to discuss a proposed ordinance that would require 15 percent of new housing projects to be affordable housing. The town already requests that developments allow 15 percent of units to be affordable, but an ordinance would make the suggestion into a requirement. “There’s concern that if we don’t address the issue, we won’t have the diversity of race and economic background as we do now — that’s what makes Chapel Hill an interesting place to live,” Pease said. The ordinance would apply only to new developments of five or more units and would make housing available to households with

incomes between 65 and 80 percent of the area median income. Pease said there are two different types of affordable housing need: people who are eligible for public housing according to government rules and people who work in Chapel Hill but can’t afford to live there. Some professions, such as university administrative employees or firefighters, are slightly above the level of income for government aid but still can’t afford to live in Chapel Hill. “If the people who teach your children or care for you in the hospital or pick up your garbage or police your streets can’t afford gas to drive from two counties away, they might not want to come here anymore,” said Robert Dowling, executive director of the Community Home Trust. “Do we want to alienate those people? I don’t think we do.” But Nick Tennyson, executive vice president of the Home Builders Association for Durham, Orange and Chatham counties, said he has questions about the town’s authority to require the ordinance. “We believe local governments

acquire specific authority to enact ordinances of this type and we don’t think Chapel Hill has that authority,” he said. “It’s not something the HBA can challenge because we do not build, therefore we are not directly paying the fee.” The public review meeting tonight will provide opportunity for commentary from residents, Pease said. There is a public hearing scheduled for March 15. The process is still in its beginning to middle stages, Pease said. “The vast majority of people I have met think affordable housing policy is a good idea,” Pease said. “Whether that applies to inclusionary zoning or not, I don’t know. But we’ll find out.” Contact the City Editor at

the tuba has a dent. the drumhead rips open. the violin neck is severed from its body. even with attentive care from musicians, bad things happen to good instruments. “i have seen a trumpet held together with duct tape and slides held on by pieces of string,” said doug crandell, a junior biochemistry major. Broken instruments are a musician’s nightmare, but the injuries don’t have to be fatal. Musicians can repair an instrument on their own or take it to a trained repairman. Not all instruments are the same. string, brass and wind instruments each require different treatment. here’s a look at some common problems and how to keep your instrument in top shape. contact the arts editor at

Brass instruments, which include trumpets and horns, create sound through different valves opening and closing as air passes through. Because of their tough material, they can usually survive a few dents. if a valve is severely damaged, musicians must seek help.

woodwind instruments produce sound through musicians blowing over small openings or through reeds. this family includes flutes, clarinets and oboes. replacing springs and pads for any woodwind are jobs for highly trained professionals, said music professor Brooks de wetter-smith, who specializes in the flute. the labor is tedious and requires specified equipment.

String instruments
string instruments are made out of wood and produce sound by vibrating strings. this family includes the violin, guitar and cello. strings can be easily replaced, but cracked wood needs to be fixed by a professional.

percussion instruments produce sound when a musician either hits, shakes or scrapes the objects, which creates a vibration. percussion instruments, such as the xylophone and drum sets, are often larger and heavier than instruments in the other families. they are more durable but still require care from musicians.

Musicians need to seek help to fix damaged valves or dented instruments. “it’s a little bit of a specialized industry,” said Jim Ketch, professor of music and director of jazz studies, said. “i wouldn’t hesitate to get in the car and drive to Greensboro and fayetteville if there is a real high-level craftsman.”

when strings break on the body of the string instrument, experienced players can easily replace them. cello professor Brent wissick said string instruments can crack because of the weather. a musician can take it to one of two shops near UNc for repair. Besides repairing cracks, professionals are needed to replace the string on a violin bow. the bow is generally made from horse hairs that over time will wear out and break.

sometimes musicians will send their instruments back to the production company, but there are also locals who can repair the instrument. Musicians can replace pads on their own, but it’s tedious. de wetter-smith said just to replace one pad will take him an hour, and his flute has 17 pads.

professor lynn Glassock said percussion musicians do most repairs themselves. drummers replace the drum heads and purchase new sticks. players also adjust the tension on their drums. if needed, Glassock said he prefers to hire someone to come to him so that he does not have to cart the big, bulky instruments to a repair shop.

as long as an instrument is not dented, Ketch said preventative maintenance can keep the instrument working. “the best thing is to keep the instrument clean and well-maintained,” he said. “i wash my horn about once a month.”

de wetter-smith said he does a lowgrade overhaul twice a year by cleaning, oiling and adjusting his flute.

protect the instrument from extreme temperatures and clean with a soft cloth.

Musicians should not use mallets made out of plastic or metal and shouldn’t play with too much force.

suicide bomber kills 54 in iraq
BAGHDAD (MCT) — A female suicide bomber detonated a vest rigged with explosives among a crowd of Shiite Muslim pilgrims in northeastern Baghdad on Monday, killing 54 and wounding 109, marking the latest in a string of attacks that had unnerved the city ahead of pivotal national elections in March. The bomber hid the explosives under her abaya, or black cloak, and detonated them among pilgrims gathered at a hospitality tent in Bab al-Shams.

Obama’s proposed budget could split democrats, creating problems
WASHINGTON, D.C. (MCT) — President Barack Obama’s budget proposal faces a difficult road in Congress, as Democrats struggle to balance Obama’s call for quick help for the economy, which liberals champion, along with moderates’ demands for immediate steps to curb longterm spending. Congress will begin formally considering the $3.83 trillion fiscal 2011 budget proposal on Tuesday, when Budget Director Peter Orszag is scheduled to testify before the Senate Budget Committee in the morning and the House of Representatives budget panel in the afternoon. “Democrats are conflicted,” said Robert Bixby, executive director of the Concord Coalition, a bipartisan budget watchdog group. “The liberal impulse is to spend more to boost the economy. On the other hand, there’s been this inclination to preserve the image of fiscal responsibility Democrats have built since the Clinton years.”

fifty countries to reduce emissions
WA S H I N G T O N , D . C . (MCT) — The deadline passed on Sunday for countries to associate themselves with the Copenhagen Accord, and early returns suggest at least 50 countries — representing some three-quarters of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions — have signed up to reduce their global warming pollution. Meanwhile, experts and diplomats are scrambling to tally up what, exactly, these “nonlegally-binding” commitments mean, scientifically and politically.

KABUL (MCT) — Despite U.

The Obama administration has repeatedly voiced its opposition to including the Taliban high command in the peace process that is about to be launched in Afghanistan.

latinos furious at lack of reform
LOS ANGELES (MCT) — Many Latinos are furious at President Barack Obama for failing to deliver on promises to push immigration reform legislation and might stay away from the polls during this year’s midterm elections if they don’t see concrete progress, including legalization of undocumented immigrants. U.S. Rep. Luis Gutierrez, D-Ill., said Obama’s failure to push immigration reform was symbolized by his State of the Union address last week, when he devoted only 38 of about 7,300 words to the issue.

(MCT) — President Barack Obama sent Congress a $3.8 trillion federal budget Monday that includes a $100 billion jobs package, more education spending, higher taxes on families earning more than $250,000 a year and a focus on controlling the deficit. The spending blueprint for fiscal 2011, which starts Oct. 1, is 3 percent more than the government is spending this year, according to the White House Office of Management and Budget. “It’s a budget that reflects the serious challenges facing the country,” Obama said Monday morning at the White House. “We’re at war. Our economy has lost 7 million jobs over the last two years. And our government is deeply in debt after what can only be described as a decade of profligacy.” The budget now goes to Congress, where it can expect a cool reception from Republicans who oppose tax and fee increases and who will seek more cuts in some areas to bring down the deficit. Presenting his budget, Obama reached out to Republicans but warned against political gamesmanship. Many of the budget details have been known for days, including a three-year freeze on discretionary spending, about 17 percent of the budget. Monday morning, he focused on jobs and the deficit. “When I first walked through the door, the deficit stood at $1.3 trillion,” the president said. Although the Congressional Budget Office has estimated the level of the current year’s federal deficit at $1.35 trillion, the Office of Management and Budget pegs the existing 2010 deficit at $1.56 trillion, a runaway record. The office also projects that the annual deficit for 2011 will be pared to $1.27 trillion. By 2012, it is projected at $828 billion. By 2013, it’s $727 billion. The projections are based on assumptions, however, including the president’s proposed ending of some of the 2001 and 2003 tax cuts that former President George W. Bush won. Obama’s plan would end those cuts for households earning more than $250,000 a year. In a decade, the office says, that restored tax on the wealthiest Americans could generate nearly $700 billion in revenue. At the same time, some tax breaks are necessary to stimulate the economy, Obama said. His proposed budget includes about $100 billion in tax breaks to spur investment in small business and help create jobs. The budget also includes about $20 billion in spending cuts in the proposed 2011 budget, with a freeze on the overall level of discretionary spending outside of defense and mandatory programs such as Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. That still allows for increases in some areas, such as a 6 percent boost in overall education spending.

President Barack Obama presented monday a $3.8 trillion federal budget that freezes all discretionary spending for the next three years.

seminoles stun North Carolina
Senior Writer

WOMEN’S BASKETBALL Florida State Coach Sylvia Hatchell began to list off a series of outstanding UnC
records held by her team. Fifty-one wins out of the last 52 games played in Chapel Hill. Nineteen straight conference wins at home. She had one pointed reason. She wanted to remind her players those records were no more after an 83-73 loss to No. 15 Florida State (19-4, 5-2 ACC). “We’ll see what that means to our players,” Hatchell said. “I’m not sure how much it means to them.” Junior Italee Lucas and sophomore Chay Shegog hung their heads, answering in barely audible tones. Together, the pair combined for 36 points to ignite a furious secondhalf rally. But it failed to overcome a woeful first-half performance that had allowed Florida State’s lead to balloon to 19, and eventually left No. 9 North Carolina (16-4, 4-2) trailing 36-24 at halftime.

83 73

With the loss, North Carolina conceded its second-place standing in the ACC where a logjam of teams stand tied with four wins apiece. “We weren’t ready when we started,” Hatchell said. “I don’t know what it was. I thought we had them ready to play.” Coming into the contest, UNC boasted the top-ranked scoring and rebounding team in the ACC. In the first half, those trends would never have been apparent. North Carolina got off to an uncharacteristically slow start, shooting just 26 percent from the field in the first half. The Seminoles quickly jumped on the Tar Heels, proving they could effectively handle UNC in the paint — on both ends of the court. By game’s end, the Tar Heels were out-rebounded 47-32, their

largest deficit this season. When out-rebounded, UNC has only won three games this season. “We used to intimidate people,” Hatchell said. “We don’t go after people anymore. We’re too soft.” Offensively, North Carolina also struggled to establish post presence, settling for just eight points in the paint in the first half, compared to its 32 in the second. UNC recovered in the final half of the game, with Lucas staging numerous fast breaks and feeding Shegog in the post. Shegog scored all 16 of her points in the second half, while Lucas chipped in 14 of her 20 points after intermission. With 3:25 remaining, Lucas went coast to coast and delivered an impressive one-handed layup to give the Tar Heels a fighting chance. Leading 66-65, Florida State called a timeout. But while UNC proved it might reclaim momentum, it could not reclaim the lead.

During the next two minutes, the Seminoles killed North Carolina’s rally with an 8-0 run of their own. Near the end of that run, Lucas went up with a 3-pointer to try to stave off FSU’s momentum. But as it was decisively blocked by Florida State’s Jacinta Monroe, the play seemed to encapsulate the problem that had plagued the Tar Heels in the first place. A lack of physicality. “The fact that we came back was really, really good so you have to give us credit for that,” Hatchell said. “But we never should have been in that situation to begin with.” Shegog stared at the table, as she was asked exactly what this loss meant to her and her teammates. Whether her coach’s assessment was accurate. Whether the loss would rally the team. “I don’t know,” Shegog said quietly. “I hope so.” Contact the Sports Editor at

Poor execution dooms uNC Oden’s mistake just his latest flop
ASSiStAnt SPortS editor

Florida State’s 6-foot-4 forward Cierra Bravard was easily the largest player on the floor Monday night at Carmichael Arena. But when a missed layup went off the rim with a minute remaining in the game and North Carolina down 74-68, Bravard snuck beneath the goal untouched before being fouled for an and-one opportunity. That play effectively put the game out of the Tar Heels’ reach and served as a microcosm of UNC’s lack of defensive fundamentals, which plagued the Tar Heels in their 83-73 loss to FSU. “If they threw something at us, we figured another way out to get to what we needed to do,” Bravard said. On the offensive side of the ball, UNC’s stats didn’t look much different from its season averages. The Tar Heels’ free throw and fieldgoal percentages were just a shade under their averages for the year, while the team had a higher assistto-turnover ratio Monday. But the scoring defense allowed nearly 20 points above its average, and UNC’s field goal percentage defense allowed 46 percent shooting. The Tar Heels couldn’t find an answer for the Seminole post players. Bravard, one of five Seminoles in double figures, regularly went to her patented strong right turn

in the paint and found a high-percentage shot at the open basket. The Seminoles were able to break UNC’s press with ease and almost welcomed the challenge of the Tar Heel full-court defense. FSU coach Sue Semrau said she didn’t know how her team was able to beat UNC so easily out of the press. “(Point guard) Courtney (Ward) invited the traps tonight,” Semrau said. “She wanted them coming.” UNC coach Sylvia Hatchell noticed the breakdowns in the team’s defense, especially in the first half. Those breakdowns were explained by Hatchell as something larger than just a poor performance. “None of our traps were working,” Hatchell said. “This group doesn’t go after people. Nobody’s afraid of us anymore.” The nail in the coffin, though, was UNC’s inability to rebound the ball. The Seminoles outrebounded UNC 47-32, a ghastly figure for Hatchell. The Tar Heels have won 13 of 14 games in which they tallied more rebounds than their opponents this season. Before Monday, the Tar Heels ranked first in the ACC in rebounding with 48.9 per game. Fo r w a r d Ja c i n t a Mo n r o e grabbed 17 boards for FSU, while two Seminoles each had seven. Tierra Ruffin-Pratt, despite not being able to extend her arms fully because of shoulder injuries, led In case the snowstorm hit during peak traffic hours, Mayor Mark Kleinschmidt prepared a proclamation declaring a state of emergency in Chapel Hill. The proclamation, which was not officially put into effect, would have discouraged travel and prohibited it on roads with any major obstacles such as fallen trees or power lines. The town updated its Web site at least three times each day with road conditions and sent e-mail news releases through its listserv discouraging residents from driving. “The public really seemed to listen to those warnings,” Lazorko said. And while UNC isn’t currently close to cutting any programs, UNC’s broad-based model is under strain to fund all 28 programs. “Sometimes when we’re putting the budget together, I’m wondering where’s that extra $25,000, $100,000 going to come from,” Baddour said. For the non-revenue sports, that manifests itself in second-rate facilities and budget crunches. Non-revenue sports routinely go over budget, both at UNC and elsewhere in the ACC. Coaches fill the holes with money from off-season camps, money that they could keep, based on their contracts. “The myth is that UNC has a lot of money,” women’s lacrosse coach Jenny Levy said. Fetzer Field, home to lacrosse, soccer, and track and field programs, is in dire need of renovations. Carmichael Arena offers a shiny new home for women’s basketball as well as extensive office space, but it’s harder to get donors to give to operating budgets. What suffers is team travel, recruiting and daily operations — tough choices that big-money programs don’t have to make.

UNC with eight rebounds. It was the largest rebounding deficit of the season for UNC, surpassing the -14 margin in its win against Georgia Tech. “The rebounding I can’t live with,” Hatchell said. “The earliest we can practice is 6 o’clock in the morning. If any of y’all are up, you’re welcome to come.” Contact the Sports Editor at While main roads are mostly cleared, some back roads still need to have snow and ice removed, Lazorko said. The full cost of the snow clearing operation and closures has yet to be calculated, Terrell said. The town will know by the end of the week. But with another winter storm forecasted to hit Thursday, the town will have to re-evaluate the numbers. Freezing rain is also predicted for tonight. There might be more overtime and more emergency response expenses to come. Contact the City Editor at Commission on Intercollegiate athletics and a professor at UNC. Carter and the commission are concerned by what he says is a “zerosum game” in college athletics. “Today’s expansion is just a predicate for the next one,” Carter said. “I just think it’s a dog’s game to be constantly pursuing your own tail in this steady buildup.” Some UNC coaches say that the solution might be to take college football out of the equation for compliance rules. Carter said that one option might be to make big-time football a semiprofessional sport. Baddour said he just wants to run a program that operates in the black. But even Baddour agrees that changes could be in the works, saying that continuing along the trend toward big-time sports might not be infinitely sustainable. “If we have the growth (across the board) in the next four or five years that we’ve had in the last four or five, it might not be,” he said.

reg Oden. Christ, man, what were you thinking? As if your career weren’t a joke already, you decide it’s a good idea to whip out your cell phone — and your penis — and take pictures of yourself naked in front of a mirror. And if that weren’t bad enough, the idea of sending these pictures to someone fell into the “plausible ideas” section of your brain. I know you look older than a caveman’s uncle, but you’re in the NBA. And for every chick that wants a naked picture of you, there are probably a hundred more right outside the player’s entrance, 82 times a year. But I should’ve seen it coming. Remember the hype in November 2006, when you and the up-and-coming Ohio State Buckeyes came to Chapel Hill? An injured wrist kept you sidelined and in street clothes — and left thousands of college basketball fans wondering what might have become of a 98-89 Tar Heel victory had you been on the court. Of course, you guys rebounded nicely, finishing the regular season 27-3 and making a run to the NCAA championship game. Your team lost to Florida but

At the BUzzer

your potential was as obvious as the length of your groin ferret. You scored 25 points, grabbed 12 boards and blocked four shots, against eventual NBA all-star Al Horford and fellow first-round pick Joakim Noah. It’s just too bad that was the pinnacle of your career, especially for the Portland Trail Blazers. They drafted you No. 1 the following June, and, for the second time in the franchise’s history, they selected a bust. First, it was Sam Bowie over future NBA Hall of Famers Charles Barkley, John Stockton and, oh yeah, Michael Jordan in 1984. Twenty years later, they gambled again, and again came up empty. In fairness, it’s tough to lay all the blame on you, Greg. Injuries have befallen many of the game’s potential greats. But, fresh off your 22nd birth-

day, it’s obvious that it would take a comeback as improbable as your downfall to resurrect your career. In three years in the NBA, you’ve played 82 games. Your averages of 9.4 points and 7.3 rebounds per game don’t seem worth the $12.5 million price tag. Especially when you consider that Kevin Durant, whom Oklahoma City took with the second pick, has given his team 24.3 points and 5.8 rebounds per game — and zero PR nightmares. You’ve made the Blazers a laughingstock while the Thunder are laughing all the way to the bank. History would suggest the future doesn’t bode well for their investment. Bowie averaged 10.9 points and 7.5 rebounds in a career that never saw him play a full season. Meanwhile, Jordan was a 14-time all-star, won five MVP awards and six NBA championships — one of the greatest careers in the history of sports. The parallels between you and Durant are eerily similar. I’m not sure if you can do anything to stop it, but keeping it in your pants is a nice place to start.

funds are typically set aside from typical spending for situations such as employee overtime during snowstorms. Lazorko said department heads discuss snow-clearing procedures regularly. “There is a tremendous amount of coordination that occurs between departments,” she said. Nine car accidents occurred in Chapel Hill over the weekend — an amount Lazorko called relatively small considering the conditions. Nobody was injured in the accidents, she said.

ment fields only 19 varsity teams. “When athletic directors get together, we talk about this model,” Baddour said. “We have the same concerns. It’s like OK, does this thing blow up on us? It’s my job to see that it doesn’t.” The stories are similar at schools in powerful football conferences like the Big 12 and SEC. Florida easily supports 16 varsity teams on its $108 million in revenue for 2008-2009. Those schools can not only outspend UNC in football, but also in basketball, women’s soccer, gymnastics and everything else. It puts UNC sports at a competitive disadvantage across the board. Big-money universities also report sizeable surpluses in the athletic department. Texas reported $25 million more revenue than expenses in 2008-09. Both LSU and Florida topped $6 million in surplus. On the other hand, UNC finished 2008-09 year reporting less than $200,000 in surplus.

Making ends meet
That small and tenuous surplus is the reason that UNC pumps money into building up the football program. Success on the field can jumpstart increased revenue from football and help cushion the athletic department budget. But UNC remains just middleclass in wins and losses despite massive investments in enclosing Kenan Stadium with premium luxury seating.

We must confront teenage drinking

lack of diversity in pool of provosts disappointing
TO THE EDITOR: As reported in The Daily Tar Heel, all the finalists for the position of provost are white men. The Association for Women Faculty and Professionals and the Black Faculty and Staff Caucus at UNC wrote the chancellor to express their concerns about the lack of gender, racial and ethnic diversity among the candidates. As the executive officers of the campus chapter of the American Association of University Professors, we share their concerns. Disciplinary diversity is also absent. UNC is known for its liberals arts education yet is not one of the finalists represents the humanities or the social sciences. We’d like to know the search committee’s criteria, the content of the ad that solicited applicants, and how long the ad ran. Did the committee encourage any internal candidates — who may have met the criteria for diversity — to apply? The process should be investigated in order to ensure that this problem doesn’t arise in the future. Some might respond that Bernadette Gray-Little’s successful administrative climb in recent years at UNC demonstrates our campus’s cultivation of female and African-American leadership. On the contrary, we believe one success story is not enough and distracts us from confronting the structural barriers that reinforce homogeneity in upper administration. Let’s not forget that the provost is the chief academic officer. All the more reason to expect candidates well-versed in the core curriculum of a liberal arts university to appear among the finalists. Mark Driscoll President American Association of University Professors UNC-CH Campus Chapter Altha Cravey Vice President American Association of University Professors UNC-CH Campus Chapter of transportation faced further dangers by attempting to get to campus in these conditions. Most of the major public school systems in the area, i n c l u d i n g O r a n g e , Wa k e , Alamance, and Guilford counties, were closed the entire day. Other universities in the area — such as UNC-Greensboro — had no school on Monday because of the unsafe conditions. Everyone knows that academics are the number one goal, but is one day of class really worth risking the safety of thousands of students trying to get there? Just last year on a morning with icy roads and the failure to delay classes, a bus slid off the road into a telephone poll. Had a person been walking to class at the time, they could have been seriously injured. The University should just play it safe and never allow a chance for this to happen.

he Daily Tar Heel recently reported on several student underage drinking cases that were recently dismissed by the court for alleged constitutional violations. Alcohol abuse is our greatest collegiate problem, and universities are under intense pressure to reverse this destructive behavior. An addictive drug, alcohol kills more teens than all other drugs combined, with collegiate deaths and poisonings at record levels. Alcohol-related damage to the brain, heart, liver, lungs, circulatory system, genetic makeup, pancreas and other serious teen health issues are well-documented. Alcohol contributes to many suicides. High-risk, even criminal, behaviors are associated with teen drinking. And alcohol fuels the majority of sexual assaults on women. Reaping the fruits of our complacency, for the first time the majority of the nation’s alcoholics are young people, teens to age 26. Alcohol misuse jeopardizes personal health and future career. The local Alcohol Law Enforcement Response Team, a combined enforcement effort involving the Chapel Hill and Carrboro police departments, was created to focus on this community problem. In both underage drinking cases the DTH mentioned, the judge’s decision dealt only with the investigative conduct of the officers, without reaching the personal conduct of students charged. Most accepted personal responsibility. We expect police to make instantaneous decisions in situations confronting them. Often that defining line for constitutional action is unclear for officer, lawyer and judge. Previously, cases involving virtually identical facts have been found to pass constitutional muster. There is rarely a clear or solitary answer. Diversity of opinion on constitutional issues is common, and one ruling is rarely the final word. But officers don’t have the intellectual leisure of casual reflective thinking available to lawyers and judges. The DTH reports that student underage drinking cases have increased, implying ALERT responsibility. No doubt ALERT charges have added to court business. But reflecting a community focus on underage drinking, charges have increased steadily for five years, beginning long before creation of ALERT. The DTH, however, is dead wrong in connecting the increase in underage drinking cases to an increase in constitutional violations, or in implying that cases have now decreased because of those violations. As a free society, we have a responsibility to protect individual liberties, while, as responsible citizens, we have a simultaneous obligation to comply with the law. As we expect legal behavior by officers, we, likewise, expect it of students. Neither are above the law. Underage drinking is a serious problem locally. UNC opened its academic year with the alcoholfueled death of Courtland Smith, but he is only one of the many student victims of abusive drinking. ALERT is a response to concerns expressed by every sector of our community, including UNC. Standing alone, courts are not the solution to this problem, but with all other community and university efforts failing to reverse this destructive trend, it is another tool a community must utilize to responsibly confront this threat.

ith more than 6 million high school students participating in after-school sports, it’s surprising and troubling that there is no mandated athletic trainer position to assist coaches in injury prevention and care. It’s been more than 18 months since two North Carolina high school football players died from head injuries. Around the same time, Chapel Hill High School football player Atlas Fraley also died after football practice. But more than half of the state’s high schools still lack certified trainers, according to The (Raleigh) News & Observer. Only 156 of the North Carolina High School Athletic Association’s 379 member schools have a certified athletic trainer on staff. To become certified, a person must complete an examination administered by the National Athletic Trainers’ Association


More than half of North Carolina’s high schools lack certified athletic trainers, posing dangerous problem
Board of Certification, Inc. They also must possess a degree in athletic training. Placing certified trainers in every high school in the state needs to be a priority. But due to the lack of money, hiring new trainers might not be economically feasible. This isn’ t an excuse. If schools can’t provide the adequate safety measures to prevent serious and preventable sports injuries, parents should reconsider letting their children participate. It’s estimated that one-third of high school athletes will sustain an injury during a sports season that is serious enough to require being benched until recovery. And according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, sports and recreation-related concussions in the U.S. surpass 3 million annually. Head injuries that are sustained in high school can have lifelong effects. Developing brains often take longer to recover, and risk of serious injury is exponentially increased if athletes return to their team too quickly. Several states have enacted legislation that, on the whole, prohibits students with head injuries from returning to the field until they are fully recovered. Washington, California, Oregon and Texas are leading the way. But having a mandatory athletic trainer on the sidelines must be the next step. Certified trainers can recognize symptoms and can advise athletes on how to effectively treat their ailment. Schools and their communities must take it upon themselves to take care of their young, developing athletes. It is a decision that could affect the lifelong well-being of their students.

Problem comes to a head

Basketball effort has been sub-par and unacceptable
TO THE EDITOR: Let’s be honest. No one expected the men’s basketball team to win the ACC, even after the sportswriter’s poll placed them at the top of the league. The team simply lost too much talent from last year’s NCAA title team. That said, I don’t believe that anyone would expect this team to trail by 15 or more in six different games this year and to lose in the fashion it has to Virginia, College of Charleston, etc. The team lacks floor leadership, doesn’t understand the offense and can’t execute it, and cannot identify an opposing shooter. The team shoots worse at the free throw line than my 13-yearold daughter. Players cannot complete a simple cross-court chest pass without requiring the recipient to lunge back two feet or jump to catch it. Players drive into triple coverage in the lane, with no concept of where the pass should occur. Coach Roy Williams has played the “good coach” role in his press conferences, speaking as to how he must do a better job with this team than he has. After half the season, I can no longer stomach listening to Roy taking the heat for the inabilities of this team. I see a consistent lack of aggressiveness, toughness, leadership and effort. If you’re a basketball player at UNC, listen up. If you look down at that uniform, at all of the history and tradition it represents, and it doesn’t inspire you to go out and leave it all on floor every game, please take it off and give it back. You don’t deserve it. Greg Fansler UNC ’94 DTH ONLINE: candidates in campus elections respond to the editorial board’s questionnaire.

Continue fight for access


N.C. Coalition for College Access deserves praise for fighting for a≠ordable education opportunities
college is both legally and fi n a n c i a l l y a c c e s s i b l e t o undocumented immigrants. Unfortunately, the inclement weather ended up postponing the meeting, which expected a turnout of nearly 100 students representing 15 different schools. This summit in particular was to focus on training the organization’s members to inform high schools and their undocumented students about their college options. Currently, undocumented students are allowed to enroll at any college they are accepted to regardless of their citizenship status. Sadly, undocumented students must pay out-of-state rates even if they have been living here for most of their lives.

he N.C. Coalition for College Access planned to get together Saturday to address a problem that has plagued the landscape of the United States’ higher education system: access for undocumented immigrants. Allowing qualified undocumented students affordable access to institutions of higher learning is essential to ensuring a meritocratic United States. Students who were brought to this country as children shouldn’t be given second-class treatment simply because their parents made a decision for them. Additionally, undocumented residents of the state pay most of the of taxes that documented residents do. The Coalition for College Access seeks to ensure that

The coalition hopes to change this through both state and federal reforms. “ We p l a n o n l o b b y i n g Congress to get the Dream Act pushed through in the spring,” said Ron Bilbao, the chairman of the group. The Dream Act is a bill that would permit undocumented students to attend universities at in-state rates if they meet certain criteria. Although the legislation would not permit undocumented students to obtain a Pell Grant, it would make them eligible for federal work study. This is a step in the right direction. Undocumented students who have been in this state long enough should be given in-state tuition rates to universities and colleges.

not cancelling classes was a dangerous move
TO THE EDITOR: Even though the University has a straightforward inclement weather policy, the decision to hold classes after 10 a.m. Monday was a mistake. While the actual campus roads and parking lots may have been cleared of ice by the University and deemed safe, this decision did not account for the large number of students who live in off-campus housing. Many neighborhood roads that sit in the shade remained completely covered by ice through the af ternoon on Monday, making it very dangerous for students to be driving to a class that should have been cancelled. Furthermore, people who rely on bikes and other modes
