Skate park yearns to be free Tipster

The owners of Carrboro’s Miel Bon Bons are confectionary experts. Just hearing about their pomegranate, lavender, blood orange and rosemaryflavored concoctions is guaranteed to make you drool.
Ten years after the Chapel Hill Skate Park opened its ramps to local skaters, high prices and poor promotion have sent it on a downhill grind. To pick back up the momentum, Ryan Ogilvy, the park’s manager, petitioned the Chapel Hill Town Council on Jan. 25 to stop charging entrance fees and tear down the fences around the premises. The town leases the park to skate company Vertical Urge, which keeps it running and pays the town if profits exceed $80,000. But business has taken a hit, and revenue has dropped a third since last year, so Olgivy said it’s time to rethink the deal. “We would do better if it were free,” Ogilvy said. “People are discouraged to come out because of the prices.” But Chapel Hill Parks and Recreation Athletic Supervisor Bernard Leach said the town has no reason to discontinue its contract, which expires in May. Unlimited year-long memberships cost $200 for Orange County residents and $250 for non-residents. Skaters can also pay $7 or $8, depending on residency, per session. Ogilvy said the skate park, located off Homestead Road, has about 15 unlimited-skating members. He said that the public skate park model can work. Last year, Durham built a $485,000 skate park across from the police station after local skaters made demands to the city. Marsh Creek Skate Park in Raleigh is also public. Bill Webster, assistant director of Chapel Hill Parks and Recreation, said he supported Ogilvy’s idea but did have some concerns.

Hundreds of callers who helped find the men charged with killing former Student Body President Eve Carson will stay anonymous, a judge ordered Thursday. The Orange County district attorney has documents which detail the tipster calls, some of which have already been provided to the defense lawyers of the men charged with Carson’s killing. After today’s order, the district attorney will hand over only the transcripts that don’t identify the tipsters, and all of the tips will remain sealed from public view. Most of the calls were to the anonymous tip service Crime Stoppers, Inc. The government wanted to ensure that the promise of anonymity was kept so that people would continue to use the service, which solves otherwise unsolvable crimes, District Attorney Jim Woodall said. The defense attorneys wanted to see all of the tips to ensure that there weren’t other people that could have been arrested for the

Students could see more Pell Grants
Proposal increases federal aid
BY jeanna smialek
staff writer

Paying for college could be easier for low-income students under the presidential budget proposal, but middle-class students might find it harder to take out loans. About 1 million more students around the country would be awarded Pell Grants in 2011 under the proposal, which was released this week. The money comes from $68 billion in additional spending on the program throughout 10 years. “It may increase the amount of lower-income students who apply for higher education and financial aid,” said Mark Kantrowitz, publisher of FinAid.org, a financial aid Web site for students. But the federalization of Perkins loans, another of

President Barack Obama’s proposed reforms, has potential to cost UNC students, said Shirley Ort, director of the Office of Scholarships and Student Aid at UNC. Perkins loans are mostly distributed by individual schools, but if federalized, adding them to financial aid packages could become harder. In 2008-09, 2,563 UNC students received Pell grants, which averaged $3,434, Ort said. Ort said the reform comes at a time when more college students might need financial aid because of the struggling economy. Kantrowitz said about 7 million students nationwide benefit from Pell grants, which average $4,000. The maximum grant for 2009-10 is set at $5,350. Obama proposed raising that to $5,710 by the 2011-12 school year,

Two types of federal financial aid Pell grants: Provide need-based aid to

undergraduates from low-income families. Currently, money is allotted to the program at Congress’ discretion, but Obama’s proposal would make it a mandatory program. In the 2008-09 school year, 2,563 UNC students received Pell grants, with grants averaging $3,434.

Perkins loans: Provide loans to financially needy students. These loans are distributed by campus administrators, who have considerable flexibility on how they allot the money. Under the new plan, this program will operate at a federal level. This school year, UNC received $4 million in Perkins loans.

Two new administrators will take office this spring, and the relationship forged between them could influence how successful each will be. STUDENT The student ELECTIONS body presi2010 dent and the vice chancellor for student affairs serve as the primary liaisons between students and administrators, and their positions have benefitted in the past from a close relationship with each other. This year, the student body president will work with a new vice chancellor. Winston Crisp will assume the role in May. Crisp has demonstrated a handson leadership approach that might allow the new president even greater opportunities to forge a relationship that could bring student interests closer to top administrators,

Nash Keune:* “We will definitely entertain the idea of disbanding the administration if they get in the way of our ideas.” Joe Levin-Manning: I “will also
work to develop strong positive relationships with the new administrators to ensure to that the two administrations are working together.”

Hogan Medlin: “Student government will work hard under a Medlin administration to connect and engage students and administrators alike in accomplishing the goals established.” Shruti Shah: We “must continue the work that they do with administrators, while also continuing to do a better job of gauging student opinion and gaining student feedback.” Greg Strompolos:* “Even though I’m working with the administration, I’m not working for them. I’m working for the students. In the end, it’s about what the students want.” *Candidates who did not mention the issue in their platforms were given a chance to elaborate on their plans.

BLACKSBURG, Va. — The white towels twirled by Hokie fans before Thursday night’s game filled the Cassell Coliseum with white flecks of cloth. It looked like a snowstorm — and the 74-70 final score added another loss to the pile that’s snowing North Carolina’s season under. “It’s tough, what we’re going through,” UNC coach Roy Williams said. “It doesn’t get any easier.” The loss, this time to Virginia Tech, will hurt even more because of the flashes of resiliency the Tar Heels showed Thursday. UNC showed it could compete in the ACC, but wins are still elusive. John Henson, the highly touted freshman forward, started to show his tremendous talent. He played in the post more Thursday night than in previous games, and had a career-high 14 points. “That’s what I’ve got to do,” Henson said. “We’ve got to get on a winning streak if we keep playing the way we played tonight, cut down on those mental errors.” Freshman David Wear chipped in 12 points, and sophomore Ed Davis led UNC with 15 points and seven rebounds. Freshman Dexter Strickland started in place of a struggling Marcus Ginyard, just his fourth

Mike Easley, private eye?
t turns out one of former Gov. Mike Easley’s daydreams involves trenchcoats, dark and stormy nights and damsels in distress. A secret e-mail address Easley allegedly used to keep business on the sly used the name of a pop culture private eye, The (Raleigh) News & Observer reports. The nickname “Nick Danger” comes from a 1970s radio series chronicling the tales of private eye Nick Danger. One series of episodes tells the tale of Danger’s discovery that everyone in town was missing his or her left shoe. The name was spelled backward in the e-mail address, Sherri Johnson testified in a deposition for a public records lawsuit filed by the N&O. She attributed the backward spelling to a learning disability.
NOTED. Careful what you swallow. Police said they were questioning a Missouri man about a stolen ring when he coughed it up. The two-carat diamond ring, valued at about $20,000, was reported missing when the owner’s purse was stolen from her car. A local jewelry store recognized the ring from police pictures and called police, but the man swallowed the ring before they arrived. QUOTED. “It was just a warning from me to him.” — Therese A. Ziemann, 48, of Wisconsin, explaining why she tied up her lover and glued his penis to his stomach. Ziemann said she lured him to a hotel to confront him after she discovered he was married. Sentenced to one year’s probation Tuesday, Ziemann said she had overreacted.

Graduate students choose Medlin for SBP endorsement
The Graduate and Professional Student Federation endorsed Hogan Medlin on Thursday night following its student body president forum. Student Congress Speaker Pro Tem Dakota Williams contested the group’s decision, saying Congress would sue the federation if it endorsed any candidate. Student body president candidates were asked about plans to address the needs of graduate students and melding the graduate student body with undergraduates. Issues ranged from health care to in-state residency problems, along with creating a more family-friendly atmosphere for graduate students. Greg Strompolos was asked about his course evaluation plan, which some graduate students said they believed would be harmful for teaching assistants and job applicants.

Members of Chapel Hill nonprofit organizations burdened by the recession are hopeful this month as they apply to the Human Services Advisory Board for town funding. Glenn Gerding, the board’s chairman, said almost all nonprofits are faced with less income but have experienced increased demand for their services. “It wouldn’t surprise me if they came to us this year and said they needed more money than last year,” he said. The board has a budget set by the Town Council. Last year, the board allocated $357,900 to 46 different organizations — less than the $469,397 agencies asked for. The board will not know how much it has to offer this year until the town completes its budget process this summer. “We only have a limited amount of money to go a long way,” said Karen Rose, the board liaison. Employees of one agency, EmPOWERment Inc., which provides small business support, affordable housing and a neighborhood coalition to advocate community needs, said they will not ask for more funds than last year. “We recognized that there was probably going to be a deficit in the budget, so we kept our heads low,” said Delores Bailey, the executive director of EmPOWERment. The senior recreation program run by the Orange County Department on Aging at the Robert and Pearl Seymour Center received the most funding last year. Even though it was given $36,800, the funding was still $9,900 less than the department had requested. The program applied to the board for the first time last year. As part of a government agency, the senior center used to ask for funding directly from the town manager’s office. “The town tried to consolidate all requests for services in the community last year,” said Jerry Passmore, director of the Department on Aging. “Even though we’re a government institution providing a mandated town service, we’re thrown in with all the other applications.” The funds the program received from the board last year were not enough to cover the recreation services coordinator’s position. The department is asking for the same amount of money it requested last year. Passmore said that without enough funds, the department will resort to class fees and cuts in programming, such as yoga classes for senior citizens, to make up the cost. The board’s application for funding, which is due on Feb. 15, includes the program’s general overview, goals and results, who it assists, the operating structure and the budget. When allotting funds, Gerding said he looks

to see if an agency is fiscally responsible, wellmanaged and engaged in the community. The board also refers to the Human Services Needs Report, an outline of disparities in Chapel Hill. The top three groups that have consistently needed support are the homeless, the mentally ill and youth. Ever since El Centro Latino closed due to insufficient funds, the Latino population has also become a priority group, Gerding said. Although many agencies do not get the amount they request, town funds are a symbol of the board’s approval, said William Powers, an advisory board member. Nonprofits also use the funding as leverage to attract donations and grants. “Even if it’s only $1,000, that’s an affirmation on the part of the town of Chapel Hill that they’re doing a good job,” Powers said.

You all know the voice. Now meet the face. Ira Glass, host of the public radio program “This American Life,” will deliver a speech about radio stories Saturday in Memorial Hall. The program, started in Chicago in 1995, features first-person stories and short fiction pieces with universal interest. The show gained popularity quickly because of Glass’s tales, which combine emotion and sincerity. Past stories include babies who left the hospital with the wrong families in 1951 and found out 40 years later who their real families were. The show has picked up a massive public radio following. “Ira Glass is an icon for me because he creates a radio show that is very intimate and has a presence,” said junior Jacki Huntington,

host of a news and commentary show on WXYC. WXYC DJs admire Glass’s unorthodox way of storytelling and his conversational tone, she said. “All of us have really normalsounding voices, and so does Ira Glass. We share a casual and real feeling,” Huntington said. Adam Hochberg, a local National Public Radio news reporter, said Glass has much to offer students. “I think it is a great opportunity for the students because Glass is a master at using radio to tell stories,” he said. “I don’t know if I’d say he invented the art form of radio storytelling, but he certainly perfected it, and every week he demonstrates in his show how powerful the medium of radio is to telling the human story.” The speech will consist of a lecture followed by a short question-

and-answer session. Emily Carey, the music and media chairwoman for the Carolina Union Activities Board, said CUAB brought Glass to campus because of what he could teach students. “We want students to learn something culturally and think, as well as have fun,” she said. “People into radio, arts, writing, communications and English can hopefully see themselves in Ira Glass and learn something.” Buzz about Glass’s speech at Memorial has expanded beyond the campus. Both student and general admission tickets have sold out. “I know freshmen that are excited about it, I know graduate stu-

dents that are excited about it, and I know people in the community that are excited,” Carey said. Huntington said that it is important for UNC to host a radio personality like Glass. “It’s really a triumph for CUAB that they are bringing Glass to UNC because it is showing radio culture to UNC, which is something that is not well represented on college campuses,” she said. With so many groups anticipating Glass, it is no surprise that he will be talking to a full house. The show sold out Thursday. Glass’s speech is expected to mirror his acclaimed radio show. “I think people will enjoy listening to him speak the same way they enjoy listening to the program,” Hochberg said. “At its base, every single story is about people, and we forget that. Ira introduces us to people.” Contact the Arts Editor at artsdesk@unc.edu.

Seven UNC students are winding down their campaigns to secure one of two spots as copresident of the Campus Y. The election will take place Tuesday, Feb. 9, the same day as the student body president election. In the past, the rules required that co-presidency be shared by one male and one female, but that rule was eliminated last year. The online election is only open to dues-paying members of the Y as of Friday, Jan. 29. The two candidates with the most votes will serve as co-presidents of the Y, an organization dedicated to addressing social justice issues. This year marks the 150th anniversary of Campus Y presence on the UNC campus. In their campaigns, candidates have often focused on fiscal responsibility, inclusion of Campus Y alumni in activities

and holding a sesquicentennial anniversary celebration. As co-presidents, the students will oversee the Y’s 21 committees and 12 special project groups, and represent the Campus Y when working with administrators and other campus groups.

Despite a strong desire to team up with Chancellor Holden Thorp and an uncanny resemblance to him, Jeffrey Vitter is not his twin. Beyond dispelling that rumor, Vitter gave a sense of who he was and explained his plan for UNC Thursday at the last of three forums for students and faculty to meet and interview finalists for the University’s No. 2 administrative role. Vitter, a finalist for the position of executive vice chancellor and provost, said he believes his positive can-do attitude and core values could help UNC do anything it sets its mind to. “My aspiration is to be an enabling, transformative provost,” he said. Vitter said his experience, background and family have contributed to his six core values: having personal integrity, facilitating transparency and communication, helping people succeed, encouraging academic excellence, building a diverse, multicultural environment and being open to change. Vitter used examples from Jeffrey Vitter his time as pro- said liberal arts vost of Te xas are the “heart A&M University, and soul” of a dean of the University.

Whoever is selected as the provost will oversee all academic affairs at UNC, which will include managing the University’s budget, laying out a new academic vision and overseeing research and student affairs. Vitter spent most of his time focusing on transparency in decision-making, which he said draws people in and encourages dialogue. At Texas A&M, Vitter said he attended faculty meetings for more than 50 departments. “I focus on being a good listener,” he said. While his background is in science, Vitter said he values a diverse education that includes humanities and arts departments. “The liberal arts are the heart and soul of a great comprehensive university,” he said. In response to a question about the lack of diverse candidates in the pool for the position, Vitter highlighted his experiences at Purdue that allowed him to create diversity in the recruitment of faculty, and said he would try to foster a diverse atmosphere at UNC. “A search should not go forward without a large and diverse pool,” he said. While at Purdue, Vitter said the university doubled its rate of hiring women and minorities. At last week’s Board of Trustees meeting, administrators questioned whether UNC is doing enough to bring in minority faculty members. This focus on diversity continued into student life as Vitter talked about increasing global initiatives, another major university push. At Purdue, Vitter oversaw the development of a residence hall program to promote diversity awareness and the doubling of study abroad participation in college of science. Sophomore Ian Lee said he would like to see the next provost do a better job of linking the academic aspects of campus with student life. “There’s room to integrate those two and create a more academically vibrant environment outside of class,” he said.

Instead of being offered a contract, the next provost will be given a letter of appointment, which will outline his salary and any other benefits included in the job, such as a car, and what would happen if he decides to step down as provost.

said. The Tar Heels actually took a lead into the locker room at halftime, only to get shelled by longrange shooting from Virginia Tech. Malcolm Delaney led all scorers with 21 points, including sevenfor-seven free throw shooting to help VT (17-4, 4-3 ACC) close the game down the stretch. “It’s a good win,” Va. Tech coach Seth Greenberg said. “It’s a good program win. It validates us.” Yet again, UNC had plenty of chances to pull out a win but gave up runs to start the game and in the middle of the second half. Those runs left UNC playing from behind for most of the game. Because its so rare for federal courts to pursue cases similar to his, defense attorneys are arguing that the decision to indict him and choose to pursue the death penalty was arbitrary and based on race. Motions filed Monday asked for courts to rule out the possibility of the death penalty. They wrote that the U.S. attorney general was nearly four times more likely to authorize the death penalty in cases where the defendant was a young black male and the victim was a young white female than in other cases between 2001 and 2008.

“We put ourselves in a hole,” Williams said. “Guys got a little tougher … We were the aggressor on the offensive boards.” The Tar Heels clawed back to a one-possession game several times in the final three minutes, and Drew’s steal and layup with 1:02 to play put the score at 69-67, Virginia Tech. For a moment, UNC was thinking comeback. But Drew’s foul put Delaney at the line, and Delaney closed the game out with two makes. It didn’t help that UNC struggled yet again from beyond the arc and from the free throw line. UNC went 4-for-15 from deep, and 20-for-30 from the line. The Tar Heels couldn’t seem to get over the Atwater’s case is only the second charged in the Middle District of North Carolina between 1998 and 2008 on an indictment in which death was a possible penalty, even though a firearm was used in 1,098 murders, the defense wrote. The statistics are enough to prove discrimination, defense lawyers wrote. Lovette was less than 18 years old at the time of the crime and was ineligible to receive the death penalty. He was not indicted by federal prosecutors. “Apart from their death penalty eligibility, there is no other distinhump late in the game — a theme that’s become recurrent for UNC. And when with 17 seconds remaining, Will Graves’ 3-pointer rattled in and achingly out, it was the close to another chapter in the book of too little, too late that the Tar Heels are writing this season. The road stretch continues for UNC, as the Tar Heels travel to Maryland on Sunday and then come home to face Duke next week. UNC will likely have to win one or both of those games to stay in contention for an NCAA bid. UNC sits now at 10th in the ACC.

If federal prosecutors want to respond to the defense’s claim before the trial, they have to do so by March 15, said Lynne Klauer, spokeswoman for the Middle District. The trial is scheduled to begin in May. Contact the City Editor at citydesk@unc.edu. Crisp. He is a champion, hands down,” she wrote in an e-mail. “He has always been a huge mentor and advocate for student government. Honestly, the new SBP will probably already have met and have a strong relationship with Crisp. He’s that type of guy — he’s always been out there meeting people.” “Student affairs affects everything outside of the classroom, which is everything in student government,” Student Body President Jasmin Jones said. “Everything we do funnels into that.” Crisp, the current assistant vice chancellor for student affairs, was selected for his new job by a 16-member committee of administrators and students — one of whom was Jones. Several former presidents have served on administrative search committees, helping influence the direction of UNC’s leadership. Joe Templeton, former Faculty Council chairman who also served on several searches, said the student body president serves an important purpose on these committees. “Jasmin Jones and James Allred always brought energy, enthusiasm, and intelligence to the search committee,” he said. “Administrators look to the student representatives for a connection to the way students live in the world today. .”

start of the season. Strickland played 15 minutes and hauled in seven rebounds, but didn’t add much scoring. Larry Drew II scored nine points and led UNC with six assists. During one stretch late in the first half, Drew assisted on four straight buckets, and the Tar Heels (13-9, 2-5 ACC) looked in control of the game at the close of the first half. Heck, Drew even cracked a smile in the second half, something that’s been rare for UNC in 2010. “I thought we played with much more intensity tonight,” Williams

Guard Dexter Strickland started his fourth game of the season against the Hokies. UNC and Strickland struggled to defend the 3-point line.

Ort said. The proposal would also make Pell grant spending mandatory. Currently, Congress decides each year how much to spend on the program. To pay for the increase in Pell grants, the Obama administration has proposed eliminating the Federal Family Education Loan program, which provides federal subsidies for private loans, said U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan in a conference call Thursday. The program is not looking to increase the national debt or burden taxpayers with the increase, he said. Justin Hamilton, press secretary for the U.S. Department of Education, said federal direct loans will have the same eligibility and interest rates as the private loans that many students receive but will save the government millions of dollars in subsidies that can instead fund Pell grants and other reforms.

many N.C. college students, said the reforms to the system could hurt some students. Brooks, executive director of the N.C. State Education Assistance Authority, said students could have to pay more for loans than in the past to compensate for a possible increase in interest rates. He said that without competition, federal loan companies might get lazy and slack on service. “Local service is very important,” Brooks said.

vice chancellor for student affairs work together on a wide variety of issues covering all aspects of student life, including housing, diversity, orientation and campus recreation. Previous student body presidents met regularly with the current vice chancellor, Margaret Jablonski, who has held the role since 2004. Former Student Body President James Allred worked with Jablonski on projects including expanding field space availability and creating a fund for bringing in speakers during his 2006-07 term. Crisp said he and the new president will need to have frequent and open communication to be successful in their respective roles. “I’ll need to understand their platform and what issues they view as important, and they’ll need to understand what’s important to me,” he said. “I’ll rely on the student body president to give me advice and perspective on student viewpoints, to educate me and to be an advocate for student issues.” Former student body president J.J. Raynor, who built a relationship with Crisp while he was the assistant vice chancellor for student affairs, said the next student body president will benefit from Crisp’s leadership style. “I am a huge, huge fan of Winston

BLACKSBURG, Va. — With the clock winding down and North Carolina desperately needing a stop, Virginia Tech put the ball in the hands of its best guard and the ACC’s leading scorer, Malcolm Delaney. And once again, the Tar Heels failed to stop an opposing guard. Delaney’s two free throws in the final minute iced the VT win. Since the start of this calendar year (and the start of UNC’s streak of six losses in eight games), opposing starting backcourts have outscored UNC’s starting backcourt by an average of 21.4 points. Thursday night was more of the same. Virginia Tech’s one-two punch of Delaney and Dorenzo Hudson scored 21 and 17 points, respectively. On the other end, Larry Drew II and Dexter Strickland combined for just 10. And even with Will Graves (4) and Marcus Ginyard (6) included, the Hokies combo still ruled the scoreboard. “Malcolm was a load in the second half,” UNC coach Roy Williams said. “He made those big threes from deep, and those hurt us.” The Tar Heels’ struggles to defend guards have been well documented. Delaney and Hudson became the sixth and seventh Contact the University Editor perimeter starters to exploit UNC at udesk@unc.edu. this season. Georgia Tech’s Iman Shumpert (30), Delaney again (26), Clemson’s Demontez Stitt (20), Wake Forest’s Ishmael Smith (20) and N.C. State’s

Javi Gonzalez (19) have done the same. “It gets old,” Drew said of UNC’s struggles on perimeter defense. “But it’s our task to stop that from happening.” The Hokie guards took turns getting hot Thursday. Hudson scored 10 of VT’s first 14 points to spark an early lead. Then, Delaney got hot in the second half, dropping nine of his team’s 13 at one point despite some foul trouble. He weaved around what seemed like a thousand screens per possession to find openings. “He’s crafty, he knows how to get fouled, he knows how to get to the basket, and he can shoot at the same time,” Graves said. “So he just played like himself.” While Drew’s presence wasn’t felt so much on the scoreboard, he did get into an offensive rhythm in the first half with dribble penetration. On four consecutive UNC field goals, Drew sliced into the lane and found an open teammate for a bucket. With Maryland’s Greivis Vasquez up next and Duke’s Jon Scheyer on deck, the Tar Heels will have their hands full trying to stop this trend. And as Graves said, it’s not just a collective thing. The guards need to make it personal. “It’s not just as a backcourt, just as a defender,” he said. “We want to stop them and put our effort into it. It’s just a matter of getting the job done.” Contact the Sports Editor at sports@unc.edu. not be attractive to most skaters.” Covach said the park would be more popular if the town made frequent renovations and better maintained its batting cages, which pull in large sums of money during baseball season. He said better advertising also could help. “The problem with the park is that it’s tucked so far away,” he said. “I know people who’ve lived in Chapel Hill their whole life and are just hearing about the park.” Leach also said construction companies are bidding for a $21,000 job to replace the framing of the ramps and railings. “The skate park has been a vital part of our system,” he said. “People are going to want to come back.” Contact the City Editor at citydesk@unc.edu.

Taking precautions can help prevent on-campus theft
BY Sofia Morales
staff writer

Keeping possessions safe on campus is a major concern for students. In 2008 there were 337 property crimes, a reduction from the 446 that occurred in 2006 and the 448 in 2007. Residence halls have not been a safe haven, with 26 larcenies or burglaries occurring in 2009. Stolen items ranged from money and purses to earrings and electronics. Randy Young, spokesman for the UNC Department of Public Safety, and Rick Bradley, assistant director of housing, offered tips on protecting yourself from theft.

closed 24/7, but this is only effective if students refrain from opening the door to strangers.” Young identified “piggybacking,” which happens when someone allows another person to pass through a secure door, as one of the biggest problems regarding safety.

How can students secure rooms?
Young: “They should shut and lock their door when they use the bathroom or visit friends.” Young added that it only takes a moment for someone to come inside and take something. “Value resides in small packages, which creates an opportunity for those who are looking to rob.”

and three apartment communities, we’ve had probably less than 10 incidents this semester.” Bradley said he believes the thieves are typically from within the community instead of an outsider. “When a door is open and there is a wallet or a phone, it is an easy grab”, he said.

How safe is your gear?
Property crimes on campus increased from 417 to 448 from 2004 to 2007 and decreased to 337 crimes in 2008. The most popular items stolen in 2009 were computers and other electronics such as cameras, iPhones and calculators.

Are rooms particularly vulnerable to theft?
Young: “There were about 300 robberies on campus last year, but a large percentage of those were in open areas.” He added that students often leave cell phones and laptops unattended or forget books and bags.

National and World News
U.S. to investigate Former CEO of Toyota problems BofA is charged
WASHINGTON, D.C. (MCT) — U.S. auto safety regulators have launched a formal probe into braking complaints on 37,000 Toyota Prius hybrids, just after the Japanese automaker admitted that it made changes to the brake software in models in production. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said Thursday that it had opened a preliminary evaluation of the problems, which it said had generated 124 complaints, including reports of four crashes. Many of the complainants say their 2010 Prius lurches over bumps or potholes and the brakes are ineffective for a few seconds. Toyota acknowledged problems with the software in the Prius earlier Thursday, saying it had corrected problems with the antilock brake system in models sold since late last month. The company was still deciding what steps to take to fix the problem in Prius cars sold in Japan and overseas before late January. CHARLOTTE, N.C. (MCT) — New York Attorney General Andrew Cuomo announced Thursday that his office is filing civil charges against former Bank of America Corp. chief executive Ken Lewis, former chief financial officer Joe Price and the Charlotte bank. The charges are the latest from a long-running, multi-pronged investigation of the bank’s Jan. 1 acquisition of Merrill Lynch & Co. In question has been the bank’s disclosure of Merrill’s fourth-quarter 2008 losses and bonuses paid to Merrill employees before the deal closed. In a n e w s c o n f e r e n c e Thursday, Cuomo said his office is charging the bank with securities fraud because it “understated” Merrill’s losses to investors to win approval of the deal in December 2008. A week later, the bank “overstated” its ability to legally escape the deal in order to obtain $20 billion in government bailout funds. Merrill was paying out $3.6 billion in bonuses to its employees.

WOMEN’S BASKETBALL Miami Before Thursday’s game against Miami, coach Sylvia Hatchell UNC
emphasized to her players the importance of a win. After an 80-69 loss, North Carolina (16-5) will have to wait for another chance. UNC dropped its second consecutive game against a conference opponent. After trailing for most of the game, UNC rallied from a 13-point deficit to tie the game 61-61 with 7:05 remaining. But the Tar Heels were unable to reclaim the lead, despite a seasonhigh 20 points and 13 rebounds for freshman Waltiea Rolle. UNC remained scoreless while the Hurricanes staged a 10-0 run over a five-minute stretch. It doesn’t appear the road ahead will be any easier. No. 6 Duke (6-1) is at the top of the ACC standings, and UNC will travel to Cameron Indoor Stadium on Monday to try to avenge its loss. North Carolina will rely on its conference-leading scoring offense and rebounding to get back on a winning track. “Every game is so important,” Hatchell said. “One game can be the difference between first place and sixth place.”

80 69

Midway through ACC play, No. 9 UNC has a 4-3 conference record. The two other ACC losses came against Virginia Tech on the road and UNC’s most recent home game against Florida State. Those losses put UNC among four teams that stand tied at third place with four wins apiece. Throughout the season, seven ACC teams have spent time in AP Poll. Many of them have fallen victim to upsets by their conference opponents. “I’ve been coaching for 24 years now,” Hatchell said. “I don’t think I’ve ever seen the ACC so evenly matched.” The outlook for the Tar Heels will rely largely on the leadership of two veteran players and the ongoing growth of the youthful team. The team’s scoring has fallen largely on the shoulders of Italee Lucas and Cetera DeGraffenreid, who rank fourth and ninth, respectively, in the conference. Lucas and DeGraffenreid remain the only upperclassmen among the team’s starters and have led the team in scoring for a combined 14 games this year.

UNC freshman Waltiea Rolle paced the Tar Heels with 20 points and 13 rebounds in an 80-69 loss.
“We want to do well this season,” Hatchell said. “But at the same time, we’re building to the future.” Hatchell has implemented 10 different starting lineups this season, with a number of underclassmen filling in the rotation. The team’s youth has been tested during conference play. And Hatchell’s subsequent assessment has been simple. “The team needs to be mentally tougher,” she said. The largest deficit the team has overcome in a win is nine points, which came against N.C. State. Despite rallying from a 19-point deficit to within one point against Florida State on Monday, the team failed to obtain the lead. “We did that at N.C. State, so I know this team can do it,” she said. “But Florida State showed we’ve still got a lot to learn.” Contact the Sports Editor at sports@unc.edu.

Jackson’s doctor might surrender
LOS ANGELES (MCT) — An attorney for Michael Jackson’s doctor said he was in negotiations with a prosecutor Thursday morning about how the physician will surrender to face criminal charges in the pop icon’s death. No case has been filed against Dr. Conrad Murray, but the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office is expected to file an involuntary manslaughter charge and potentially other counts against him this week, said numerous sources familiar with the case. Murray’s lead attorney, Ed Chernoff, said he and Deputy District Attorney David Wa l g r e n w e r e d i s c u s s i n g arrangements for booking and arraigning the doctor after the case is filed. “We both share the goal of the efficient administration of this process,” Chernoff said. A spokeswoman for the district attorney’s office did not immediately return messages seeking comment.

The Daily Tar Heel

Art of Hispanic healing rituals on display
Exhibit explores theme of diaspora
By katelyn trela

It has historically been a woman’s job to heal the soul and spirit. With the Sonja Haynes Stone Center’s newest exhibit, “La Sombra y el Espíritu: Women’s Healing Rituals in the Diaspora,” the tradition continues. The exhibit, consisting of photographic self-portraits by UNC alumna Wendy Phillips and oil paintings by Lucía Méndez, brings together two separate projects that explore the role of women’s healing rituals in Hispanic communities. Both display strong women and empowering figures. Artists usually submit works to the center, which are reviewed and chosen by a committee. But this

project was different. “This semester, we don’t have an arching theme, but we’re tying in to the performing arts theme of the diaspora idea,” said Ursula Littlejohn, the program coordinator at the Stone Center. This school year, UNC is linking film, lectures and theater with the theme of diaspora, a migration of people from their homelands. Joseph Jordan, director of the Stone Center, knew both of the artists and realized their works could be combined to demonstrate the diaspora theme. For Phillips, a black woman who studied in Mexico when working on this project, her experience with the artwork was extremely personal.

“I had been doing family history research and because of the circumstances of the slave trade, I got to a point where I just couldn’t find any more information about my ancestors,” she said. “I just hit a wall.” While in Mexico, Phillips heard about nearby communities of people of African descent and began working on a documentary project. These communities inspired Phillips’ new photography project. “Wendy roamed to find her place, to find her calling,” Jordan said. Her collection is divided into two parts: La Limpia and La Sombra. La Limpia is a cleansing set, composed of Phillips’ selfportraits taken in her garden. La Sombra, meaning the soul or the shadow, is a collection interpreting an embodiment of the soul

devoid of the body and is made up of smaller prints. Méndez was not at the exhibit’s opening Thursday, but her presence could be felt through her bold, bright illustrations of the healing woman. Freshman Chelsey Robertson joined classmates in attending the event for extra credit. “I think it is really cool, and I’m anxious to hear more about them, what they’re all about,” Robertson said about the works. Though they work in different mediums, both artists speak to the migratory theme. “It allows us to continue to delve into diaspora,” Jordan said at the event. “Not only what it means, but how it makes meaning in our lives.” Contact the Arts Editor at arts@unc.edu.

Bill Jenkins, an epidemiologist at the Institute of African American Research, views the gallery Thursday at the Sonja Haynes Stone Center.

Chocolatiers have sweetest jobs in town
Miel Bon Bons blends flavors
BY grace joyal
staff writer

DTH ONLINE: Watch owners create a cake at dailytarheel. com/multimedia. of the tray to eliminate bubbles. After the inner shell sets, Lau squeezes ganache, a fluffy whipped chocolate, to each shell. The filling is made by boiling cream and infusing the desired flavors, she said. Lau feels the ganache to know when to add the top shell of chocolate. She pours the chocolate over the tray and scrapes off any excess. For colorful chocolates, Lau uses food coloring powder mixed with cocoa butter and airbrushes the inside of each space in a tray. The intricate designs topping some of the pieces like a tattoo are from transfer sheets, which are individually sized and applied to each chocolate. Lau said she uses her world experience as flavoring inspiration. Before making chocolates, she was a pastry chef for a five-star hotel in San Diego, Calif. In 2001, she was inspired to go to France to study chocolate. While Lau finished her studies in France, construction was beginning on the Carrboro store. She flew between France and North Carolina while preparing to open. Miel Bon Bons, which opened in 2008, has done well in its second year. “It’s like a guilty pleasure that people can still afford,” said Anna Pepper, owner of The Painted Bird, another store in the mall. Lau and Healey said they’d consider expansion in the future, eventually offering classes in chocolatemaking and cake decorating. “Chocolate is very special,” Lau said. “You should treat it like a jewel.” Contact the City Editor at citydesk@unc.edu.

Biting into a delicately crafted chocolate at Miel Bon Bons can release fusions of pomegranate, lavender, blood orange, rosemary, saffron or ancho chile. The owner of the place, Bonnie Lau, has as many flavors — her Hong Kong upbringing, her French and Japanese education, her Carrboro destination. “Chocolate is a universal language,” she said. “Using different tastes brings someone back to their home.” Lau and her business partner, Robert Healey, make an average of 2,500 chocolates a week by hand in their shop in Carr Mill Mall. Their titles range from mango and saffron ganache to four-layered almond truffle to lemongrass with coconut puree. “People’s tastes have evolved,” Healey said. “People don’t just want a milk chocolate anymore.” If a chocolate is made correctly, it should have a nice snap when broken, Lau said. Poorly made chocolates are grainy. One tray of 28 square pieces of undecorated chocolate takes Lau half an hour to make, assuming the temperature is stable. Healey said chocolate is incredibly sensitive to temperature. “If you’ve ever opened a candy bar and it’s white, that’s because it is poor-tempered,” he said. Dark chocolate is the most popular among customers, Healey said, especially filled with rose water raspberry ganache. To make ganache-filled chocolates, Lau first coats the inside of each spot in the tray with a thin layer of melted chocolate, tapping the sides

Bonnie Lau, the owner of Miel Bon Bons in Carr Mill Mall, prepares chocolates Thursday afternoon in the kitchen of her Carrboro-based store. “Ever since I was little, I’ve dreamed of chocolate,” said Lau, whose chocolates are known for their interesting flavors such as saffron and lavender.

“We should all take issue with the recent turn in academia to treating education as part of a consumer transaction.”
“mothra,” on a column describing unspoken contracts between students and professors

Just focus on mind exercise, UNC
n my last column, I expressed my general frustration with UNC’s course requirement system, that cruel plague threatening to overthrow our education in favor of mindless, rote boxchecking. Building off this theme, I would like to address specifically the lifetime fitness requirement, a particularly onerous component of our curriculum. I can already hear many saying, “But Olivia, lifetime fitness promotes physical fitness and teaches us healthy habits. There’s nothing wrong with a little exercise.” And to those people I say yes, indeed — if you personally enjoy taking LFIT classes as inspiration for healthy living, please be my guest. What I do take issue with is everyone’s mandatory conscription into the LFIT department, whether we like it or not. The purpose of universities is to challenge us intellectually, teach us how to think for ourselves and allow us to gain at least some degree of expertise in a chosen discipline. But for some reason, American universities seem intent on treating their students as children in need of constant prodding, not as adults seeking higher education. Illogically, the lifetime fitness classes aim to instill in us a “lifetime” commitment to health upon the completion of a one-semester walking class. We are told that this is for our own good, to improve our physical fitness, and we have to accept it. But more than simply a senseless attempt to combat the obesity “epidemic” through about 32 hours of exercise total, the lifetime fitness requirement is an obvious example of the degree to which American students are denied their proper share of adulthood. Telling me that I am unable to monitor my own health at the age of 20 is akin to telling me that I am not really an adult, that I have more to learn before I can be trusted to handle my own life. It means that an undergraduate degree is no more about pursuing an academic field than it is about learning elementary school-level health concepts. Most importantly, I am effectively denied autonomy over my own body. Unfortunately, this privacy invasion is incredibly common in American universities. Sharing rooms denies us any sort of real privacy; like students in a boarding school, we are expected to sleep side-by-side and forced to give up the level of personal space that adults are assumed to need. In the same way, America’s war on underage drinking is no more than a misguided attempt to treat adults as children; again, our bodies are not our own, because even a drop of alcohol makes us technically guilty. While exercise is certainly necessary for a healthy lifestyle, a childish fitness requirement is an unfortunate testament to American universities’ unwillingness to cede parental control over their students. We legally become adults at 18, and as adults we should have the right to run twice a week or not, to share a room or live singly, to drink a beer or teetotal. Either way, I expect UNC to give me a high-level understanding of English literature, not a mindless series of laps around a track.

Because of racism legacy, race should play factor
TO THE EDITOR: Barack Obama’s election made many Americans face their racial prejudices tangibly for the first time. But his election did not create a “post-racial” society, where racial attitudes don’t affect our politics. Cameron Parker’s op-ed “Content over color” (Feb. 3) is wrong in implying that it did and saying that Chapel Hill should put race in the rear-view mirror when it comes to town politics. The process that ultimately chose Donna Bell, a qualified progressive community activist, to serve on the Town Council was democratic and transparent. Parker argues that there was a double standard between Asian-Americans and AfricanAmericans in the process. Augustus Cho ran for Mayor and received less than 3 percent of the vote. Not a single Asian-American candidate stood for election to the Town Council. Cho is also a Republican leader, and AsianAmericans voted almost 2-1 for President Obama. Cho couldn’t even rally his own community. Those who suggest realizing Martin Luther King Jr.’s Dream by ignoring the role of race in our politics live in a fantasy world. Coming from Parker, it reeks of white privilege. There is only one African-American U.S. Senator and two African-American governors. African-Americans still face tremendous difficulty getting proportional representation in government. Jeff DeLuca Freshman Political Science, Music

Armed and dangerous
UNC must remain committed to all 28 varsity sports and resist the financial arms race in college football


fforts to keep up with perennial football power conferences — the SEC and Big 12 — risk perverting UNC’s commitment to nonrevenue sports. UNC should remain committed to sustaining a broad range of Division I varsity sports, even at the expense of expanding the football program. The model of funneling money to football will send UNC into a financial arms race, a dangerous tailspin of spending that the University cannot and should not sustain. Football and basketball are clearly the major sources of athletics revenue and help keep non-revenue sports afloat. But there is a difference between recognizing that — and channeling resources accordingly — and entering into an all-out spending binge on football to compete with the powerhouses.

Last year, the athletics department reported a surplus of just $200,000, compared to a $6 million profit at Florida. But Florida supports only 16 varsity teams, the minimum required by the NCAA to be a Division I school. UNC, by contrast, funds 28 varsity sports. The current model is clearly strained. The answer, though, is not entering into an arms race in an effort to catapult UNC football to national prominence — and to ramp up revenue. Increased funding for the football program reaps improved facilities, like the $10 million sports medicine facility opening in 2010. Proponents argue this improves player performance, which leads to more wins. Provided the team wins, better recruits could decide to play for UNC. And more wins means more revenue. But then, of course, that addi-

tional revenue goes toward even more state-of-the-art facilities and even higher coach salaries. It is a self-perpetuating cycle that carries budgets into the stratosphere with little hope for decelerating. And there is no guarantee increased funding will even improve our football program at all. UNC’s expenditure growth will almost certainly be matched, if not outpaced, by more prestigious football programs like Texas and Florida. The University can continue to place a priority on sports like football and basketball — but not at the expense of the smaller non-revenue sports. Entering a money war with traditional football powerhouses guarantees one thing: huge expenditures. It does not guarantee what’s far more important — tangible benefits across the board.

Hear ye, hear ye


With little time left in o∞ce, Jones right to pursue town hall meetings for student feedback
tion,” said Student Body Vice President David Bevevino. The student body president candidates have already solicited a lot of student ideas. Candidates tend to incorporate student input in crafting platforms, and they hear from students regularly at campaign forums. But this town hall process nevertheless has unique advantages that stand to help Jones’ replacement. First, it gives Jones a final initiative to pursue during her lame duck tenure. Jones’ greatest strength is her personality, which she can use to really csonnect with students. Second, the town halls will give student government the most recent sentiments of the student body — an “updated snapshot,” in Bevevino’s words. Jones hosted the first of eight planned forums on Monday in the lounge of Mangum Residence Hall, in the Olde Campus Upper Quad community. She will host seven more in the coming weeks. Jones said about 20 students came to the first town hall. But more should come to her future meetings. This is a valuable way to connect with student government and influence the priorities of the new administration. As the end of the Jones administration approaches, students should take every opportunity to ensure that the next administration starts off on the right foot.

Football should not be changed, is valuable sport
TO THE EDITOR: Yes, football is a dangerous sport. It is the cause of most serious sport-related injuries at the high school level (as suggested by the letter to the editor titled “Problem is with football itself, not lack of trainers”, Feb. 2). But this is because it is a contact sport. Anyone playing this game understands that and knows the risks involved. Football is the greatest sport on this earth. Just wait to see how many people watch the Super Bowl this weekend. Or the number of kids who play the sport from third-grade leagues on up to the high school level. This sport teaches valuable lessons to its players. I was not the best high school athlete, but playing football taught me the importance of perseverance and hard work. Watch the movie “Rudy” and you’ll understand. The sport is perfect. No other sport requires the combination of athletic ability with so much intellectual prowess. Watch how Peyton Manning plays this Sunday. People who love and play this game are intelligent. They know the risks involved. But they also know the joys the sport can bring. All across this great country, young men dream of putting a football helmet on. Robert Fleming Sophomore Economics

he town hall meetings being conducted by Student Body President Jasmin Jones are a good final effort by the administration to collect student input to pass on to the next president. Jones has little time left in office. But this effort is not about what she will be able to accomplish before she leaves. It is about providing the next student body president with the knowledge needed to address student concerns on day one of his or her term. “The next SBP will come in with their set of established goals and ideas, but it is important for them to know the concerns of the student body right now at the time of their elec-

No ordinance needed
proposed Chapel Hill town ordinance requiring home builders to mark off 15 percent of their new units as affordable housing strikes the right tone. But the ordinance is unnecessary; it’s important for the town to maintain some flexibility in working to attract developers. Even without an ordinance, the town has been pretty successful in negotiating with developers to keep affordable housing needs in mind. Low-cost housing is certainly a worthy goal when considering the current real estate market of the area. Even with the economic downturn, the average home in Chapel Hill


Chapel Hill needs flexibility in working with developers
sells for about $342,000. With such high pricing, town officials are worried that lowerto medium-income workers are finding it harder and harder to live in the area. And they are right to be concerned. The real crux of the issue, though, is whether this is the best way to go about providing affordable housing — not if the housing is needed. An ordinance would hinder the town’s ability to negotiate and attract developers, who might be less willing to work with the town because of the concrete policy. So maintaining a level of flexibility is important. Further, having developers set aside low-cost units is not the only way to address the affordable housing issue. In Carrboro, developers have the option to donate money and time to the Community Home Trust, an organization that provides homes between $90,000 and $150,000, priced between 30 and 50 percent below their appraisal values. This functions as a workable alternative. The idea behind the town’s ordinance is important. Making sure there is low-cost housing in Chapel Hill should be a priority. But adding a strict ordinance is not the right way to go. Chapel Hill should remain as flexible as possible so as not to drive developers away.
