“The big issue with any tuition increase is how to make the effects to students as harmless as possible,” Carney said. A major concern is the ability of the University to cover need-based financial aid to students, Carney said. Shirley Ort, associate provost and director of scholarships and student aid, said it is the University’s policy to provide 35 percent of tuition to need-based financial aid — far above the state-mandated 20 percent. She said they are working to ensure that students who need financial assistance will

Although UNC students have voiced opposition to building a pedestrian bridge on campus since its proposal one year ago, the Board of Trustees is still planning to consider all data with a careful eye. In April, the capital projects committee of UNC student government compiled a 41-page document that reported the responses received in November from a campuswide student poll about the bridge, but the Jones Administration hadn’t acted on the report, leaving it to her successor to present to the board. The board will not discuss the report unless it is formally brought forth by a member. In the survey, nearly nine out of 10 students stated that the South Road bridge is not a worthwhile investment. “It’s just a bridge, but people are up in arms about it,” said Student Body Secretary Ian Lee, co-writer of the report and co-chairman of the capital projects committee. Bob Winston III, chairman of the Board of Trustees, said this was the first time students had created a survey about any construction project at the University. A majority of those surveyed voted that they believe the bridge would be a waste of funding, an unattractive addition to the heart of campus and an inappropriate way to increase traffic flow on South Road. More than 1,300 students responded to the survey. Despite such student disapproval, the board will still consider the plan. “It’s hard for people who aren’t involved in a dayto-day basis to have a perspective about this thing,” Winston said. “If someone says I don’t think it looks pretty, I don’t like the look, that’s fine. Everyone has an opinion,” he said. Estimates for the cost of the bridge range between $8 million and $9 million. The report states that the bridge would likely take a decade to complete. “I don’t know if people in college know what construction costs for these kind of things,” Winston said. The bridge would potentially span from the southwest

Environmental groups across the state are raising a stink over sludge. The Blue Ridge Environmental Defense League in conjunction with N.C. Sen. Ellie Kinnaird, D-Orange, held a press conference June 21 to discuss public health and the environment, and they are still waiting for answers. Some groups argue sludge will contaminate water unless the state holds it to stricter standards. They are calling for a moratorium on spreading the sludge in the state’s critical watersheds, which they said is happening in Orange County. Orange Water and Sewer Authority has a 2006 permit that allows the spreading of sludge, or biosolids — the solid byproduct that comes from treating dirty water and sewage — in Orange, Chatham and Alamance counties. Some of the permitted sites are within their respective county’s defined critical watershed area; however, they are not within the area the state defines as a critical watershed. The state deems treated sludge safe to dump in areas cleared by state permits, but groups including the league argue that even treated biosolids — regulated for certain chemicals — are harmful. Sue Dayton, coordinator for the League’s N.C. Healthy Communities Project, said sludge is harmful because of some contaminants. “The potential effects are very scary,” Dayton said. The effects of biosolids on

Comic books often evoke farfrom-realistic images of heroes, supervillains and damsels in distress. But the inspiration behind UNC professor John Rogers’ recently released cartoon book isn’t any of these — it’s the unique history and culture that makes the University. Rogers, an emeritus professor of geological sciences and longtime Tar Heel supporter, began the project as a fundraiser for the University. The professor covered the cost of printing and provided a stipend for the book’s illustrator. “That’s out of his pocket entirely and this is just a labor of love,” said Del Helton, associate director of donor relations at the Arts and Sciences Foundation. Rogers hopes that the book, which he began writing late last year, will attract both positive attention and money for the University. “UNC as a whole has been very good to me, and I wanted to do something back,” he said. The book provides a glimpse into University life as informative

The Chapel Hill Planning Department formally accepted an application Tuesday afternoon that has divided Chapel Hill residents. The Inter-Faith Council for Social Service submitted the complete Special Use Permit application to move its shelter from Rosemary Street to northern Chapel Hill. The Inter-Faith Council had to resubmit the application after the planning board deemed it incomplete on June 21. The application is the third step of a five-step process. “Some people might want to see this as a punitive process, but I don’t think it will be,” Inter-Faith Council Executive Director Chris Moran said. “We’re doing everything in our power to make this a great application.” But some local residents have a problem with the public process thus far. “We’re now playing catch-up on

the public process,” said Lisa Ostrom, a North Forest Hills resident. “The site has already been chosen. There has been no public process to choose the site. We’re struggling. How do we fit in when half the process is already done?”

A “rigorous” process
The permit process begins when an applicant meets with the Design Comission and Town Council and reviews their concept plan. Tony Armer, chairman of the United Church of Chapel Hill Board of Trustees, signed the submitted application. The Church’s approval was required as parts of the shelter would affect the church’s land. Armer said he feels the public was adequately involved. “I think some people feel they haven’t been listened to if the people they’re talking to don’t agree with them,” he said. “The people were listened to, but the IFC didn’t agree with it.” Ostrom said residents who oppose the shelter will use the summer — while the Town Council is on recess

91-year-old woman from Pennsylvania will be allowed to keep the corpses of her husband and twin sister if she builds a mausoleum at her home. Police told Jean Stevens that the bodies would be re-interred if she does not build a proper burial spot for them. According to The Associated Press, Stevens said she keeps the bodies so that she can see and talk to her deceased loved ones. Stevens is also claustrophobic, and said that she can’t bear the idea of her loved ones being buried in caskets in the ground. Authorities began investigating the case in mid-June after finding the body of her husband on a couch in the garage and the body of her sister on a couch in a spare room.
NOTED. The Associated Press reported that a thief stopped his bicycle on a Southern California street to grab a 16-year-old girl, rob her of the only dollar in her purse, and steal a kiss. According to Santa Ana police, the man took the girl’s purse, handed her back her wallet, and then demanded the single dollar in it before kissing her and riding off. No one was arrested. QUOTED. After watching a live stream of a 602-pound New Jersey woman stuffing her face with food, one blogger wrote: “Lately I’ve been infatuated with the physics of my belly. . . (i)t moves with me … The more attention I pay to it, the easier it becomes to imagine sizes like 300, 400 (pounds). I like to think I don’t romanticize it, but I can’t help lusting over those sizes.”

And by taking it over, it was like the beginning of the end for the royalty and for the King.” Raguin described Bastille Day — called the 14th of July, or “le quatorze juillet” in French — as the equivalent of the U.S. Fourth of July complete with fireworks and parades honoring the military.

A team name also needs to be selected. “Old Well Wizards” is a top choice. They are always looking for new players, and Cox said she encourages anyone interested to come and play. “It’s been growing. I’ve had people e-mail me about coming to watch games and when we are going to be playing other schools,” Cox said.

Ch joins in summer reading

Members of the UNC community are joining up with the town to examine issues raised by the freshmen summer reading choice “Picking Cotton”, a memoir centered around the rape of Jennifer ThompsonCannino and the misidentification of Ronald Cotton as her rapist. The Carolina Women’s Center will be leading two programs in order to provide context for the summer reading book and to start a dialogue for the entire town, Associate Director of the Women’s Center Ashley Fogle said. But the discussion will extend beyond the campus community. The Carolina Women’s Center has invited Mayor Mark Kleinscmidt and Michelle Laws, president of the Chapel Hill/Carrboro branch of the NAACP, to speak in October. According to Kleinschmidt, the flaws Thompson-Cannino, a white

woman, and Cotton, a black man, reveal in their case are more common than people understand. T he first program, titled “Complexities of Race and Sexual Assault: Impacts of Myths in Prosecution,” aims to be an interactive exploration into the misconceptions that cloud the judicial process. “The intent of the program is to demystify the misperceptions about race and sexual assault.” said Director of Carolina Women’s Center Donna Bickford. The programs are an opportunity for collaboration between students, staff and community members. Attendees will be provided with statistics about the prevalence of stranger rape and interracial rape. The first of two programs will take place on Wednesday, August 25th, during the Week of Welcome, from 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. in the Student Union. The event is co-sponsored by conflict continues because the state and county designate different areas as critical watersheds. “No biosolids have been spread on the two properties noted within the county’s critical watershed since June 2008,” Forney wrote. For Myra Dotson, resident of Bingham Township in Orange County, it’s a public health issue. She lives less than a quarter mile away from a sludge field. Because of this, she said most neighborhood residents don’t drink the tap water. Dotson has been diagnosed with Stage 1 environmental chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, which causes intense sinus infections and swelling. She believes this is caused by living near a sludge field. “People buy Kleenex in the winter. I buy Kleenex 365 days a year.”

the Diversity Education Team and SARVTAE: Sexual Assault and Relationship Violence Training and Education Task Force. The second program consists of three speakers: Laws, Kleinschmidt, and UNC professor of political science professor Frank Baumgartner. Bickford said she hopes that the presentations will be a springboard for communication on taboo issues. Ultimately a story of forgiveness, the memoir is written by Thompson-Cannino and Cotton, with Erin Torneo. Their experience draws attention to flaws in the criminal justice system, which resulted in Cotton spending 11 years in jail. There will be a network of safe spaces on campus for students to react to the emotional and graphic events of “Picking Cotton” in a safe environment.

be able to receive it even with the possibility of a tuition increase. We are assuming the money we can get through tuition increases will offset the money students would receive through loans,” Ort said. System schools will notify UNC-system President Erskine Bowles of their tuition-increase plans in order to receive his approval. Carney said UNC submitted a request to the UNCsystem General Administration last week asking to mandate that 35 percent of the tuition increase go toward funding financial aid for the University. “If it dropped to 20 percent, students wouldn’t get money they need. Student indebtedness would rise and more loans would be taken out,” Carney said. Ernie Murphrey, vice president for finance with the General Administration, said they have been in discussion with schools about possible courses of action. Plans are tentative as the N.C. General Assembly confirms budget

details this week. UNC-Wilmington has already requested to increase its tuition by $430 for next year. UNC-Chapel Hill Student Body President Hogan Medlin said an increase in tuition could possibly stop budget cuts from affecting academics, as the cuts have mainly been restricted to University administration. Budget cuts in the academic sector could increase class size and leave fewer class sections available to students. Medlin said he was worried that student voices won’t be heard with all the decision-making power being given to Bowles by the General Assembly. But he hoped that they would be included in the discussion. One option being considered was raising in-state and lowering out-of-state tuition to the same price next year, Medlin said. Carney said increases to tuition will be discussed at the Board of Trustees meeting later this month. Contact the University Editor at Department of Public Safety. “A smoother stream of traffic across a pedestrian bridge would eliminate those misunderstandings and eliminate the stop-and-go of traffic.” Construction of the bridge depends on the ability to acquire funding, Winston said. “I think everyone is very familiar with the situation we all face,” he said. “It’s not likely to be a nearterm list.” Regardless, Lee urges students to stay informed about the possible bridge construction. “It’s really important that students stay on the issue so the administrators keep referring back to who’s actually going to be using the bridge,” Lee said. Contact the University Editor at mally until her sophomore year at UNC. But she saw the book as an opportunity. “The impetus for me is that it was a more professional setting to demonstrate my skills,” Tchou said. “I was excited at the prospect of someone needing my work.” Helton noted that the book is appropriate for anyone who holds UNC close at heart. “It’s really for anyone who loves Carolina — alumni, friends, parents of students,” she said. The cartoon book is available for $10 at Bull’s Head Book Shop, the Arts and Sciences Foundation office on East Franklin Street and at the Department of Geology in Mitchell Hall. It can also be purchased by making a $10 donation to the Arts and Sciences Foundation on their website.

Carrboroites want in on future transit
Citizen group seeks light rail
by ChRistine Rheem

Opposition to rail tax increase already brewing
Citizens will vote “I’m sure there was similar resistance on tax in 2011
by JonAthAn miChels
staff writer

Growing support from community leaders has sparked discussion to open Carrboro’s public transportation system to development. These efforts are led by Connect Carrboro, a coalition of citizens committed to bridging the transportation gap between Carrboro and the rest of the Triangle. “Carrboro and west Chapel Hill are not seamlessly connected to the regional bus network and are not featured prominently in the plans proposed for light rail and bus rapid transit,” Connect Carrboro member Rickie White said. The light rail and bus rapid transit are a few of the options put forth by a recent study of Alternatives Analysis. The light rail would resemble an above-ground metro system. Bus rapid transit would provide an extra lane for buses to improve efficiency. This study is a crucial step in Triangle Transit’s Long Range Transportation Plan that evaluates different public transit options and their effects. Connect Carrboro members said being included in this study is key to extending higherorder transit to Carrboro. “It is especially important that Carrboro be in on the ground floor of this process as the alternatives are being introduced,” member Ben Haven said. “We believe the beginning of the process will have the greatest influence in shaping the discussion and the transit map moving forward.” A significant change being discussed in the Alternatives Analysis is the addition of the light rail system to the area. Currently, proposed routes for a light rail do not extend into Carrboro. This exclusion is a central issue that Connect Carrboro is looking to change. “I’m a big advocate for moving

the rail west to Carrboro,” said Connect Carrboro member Allan Rosen. “It will be good in the long term and studying it now makes the most sense.” Proponents of Connect Carrboro said there is no reason not to want expanded public transit. “I think, once you lay out the reasons to support it, many folks in Carrboro and Chapel Hill will do so,” Haven said. Haven said benefits of a light rail route to Carrboro include environmental friendliness and a mitigation of traffic buildup on Franklin and Main streets and U.S. 15-501. The creation and extension of a light rail system into Carrboro hinges on the question of cost. “For those that are upset that there are not currently plans for the light rail line to extend into Carrboro, the reason is money,” said Lydia Lavelle, a member of the Carrboro Board of Aldermen. “We cannot build everything we want at once.” Connect Carrboro also wants to discuss other ways to improve Carrboro’s transit experience. “We would still like to see a Triangle Transit bus line that extends directly into Carrboro or west Chapel Hill,” Haven said. The fate of Carrboro’s public transportation rests on months of public hearings and studies. But Haven said he is still hopeful. “Time will tell,” he said. “The more the public is involved in the process, the more likely we will get a Carrboro inclusion.” Contact the City Editor at

A tax increase that would bring light rail to the Triangle could also stop it in its tracks. Citizens have until next year to vote to approve a half-cent sales tax increase to fund transit projects such as light rail, but opposition is already brewing against the measure. “We will oppose anything that increases taxes of any kind,” said J. Russell Capps, president of the Wake County Taxpayers Association. “They tax everything already,” Capps said. For 12 years, Capps served for Wake County in the N.C. House of Representatives. He said he’s never liked the idea of light rail in the Triangle. “We have fought it and will continue to fight it,” he said. “Light rail is nothing in the world but trying to keep up with what other cities are doing.” Overhead electrical lines power light rail cars, which can reach speeds up to 60 mph. Light rail also averages $50 million to $60 million per mile in capital expenses. The Triangle Transit Authority’s sweeping 25-year plan includes light rail, commuter rail, bus rapid transit and an expansion of existing bus service. In order to implement the plans, the TTA requires local, state and federal funding. Passing the half-cent sales tax increase is only the first part in a complicated process that eventually ends in obtaining federal dollars. “You have to have a robust local revenue source,” said Damien Graham, government affairs manager for Triangle Transit Authority. The federal funding process has become crowded and increasingly difficult to navigate, Graham said. “It’s getting more and more complicated,” he said. “The pot has not grown, but the number of applications have.”

when they introduced the car.”
bo Glenn, organizer for Durhamorange frienDs of transit

In 2007, Mecklenburg County voters approved a similar sales tax increase that brought light rail to Charlotte. TTA officials point to Charlotte’s LYNX Blue Line as a success story: fast, economical transportation that could be a model for the Triangle. Many other light rail transit plans have fallen by the wayside because transportation authorities failed to convince voters that the technology was worth paying extra money. “Yes, there’s a tremendous upfront expense, but studies show it is more economical than putting down highways and all the expense to owning and operating motor vehicles,” said Bo Glenn, an organizer for Durham-Orange Friends of Transit. “I’m sure there was similar resistance when they introduced the car, but something has to happen.” Graham said the TTA has learned from the mistakes of other regions that failed to successfully promote sweeping transit plans to voters wary of tax increases in an economic recession. TTA has been holding public forums since June to inform voters of transportation options, including light rail. Linda Lyons, a Morrisville Town Council member, attended a public meeting Tuesday at the Cary Town Hall to look at the options. “I think we do need to do something about the congestion, because it’s really bad,” she said. When asked about the TTA’s light rail proposal, she shook her head. “I’m not for that plan. I think we’re being taxed enough.” Contact the State & National Editor at

Weekly Review: Nation & World
Power plants to reduce pollution
WASHINGTON (MCT) — The Environmental Protection Agency on Tuesday proposed a new federal plan to reduce the pollution from electric power plants that wafts hundreds of miles across state lines. The new rule would require pollution reductions in 31 states and the District of Columbia — most of the eastern half of the U.S., from Texas and Minnesota to the coast. To make the cuts, power plants would be required to install new equipment or use lower-sulfur fuels. The plan is one of the most significant steps the EPA has taken toward cleaning the air for millions of Americans who live in areas where the quality of the air doesn’t meet national standards. It comes after a federal court ordered the EPA to revise its 2005 Clean Air Interstate Rule. The change was announced in the middle of a heat wave along the East Coast, when smoggy air was at unhealthy levels from North Carolina to New York. Smog aggravates asthma and acute bronchitis and is linked to heart attacks. The EPA estimates that when the new plan is in effect in 2014, it will save as many as 36,000 lives a year. The agency says the rule also would improve visibility in parks and help protect natural environments that pollution has harmed, including Appalachian streams, lakes in the Adirondack Mountains and coastal waters.

Obama administration urges judge to block arizona’s immigration law
WASHINGTON (MCT) — The Obama administration launched a legal attack on Arizona’s strict new immigration law Tuesday, arguing that only Washington can set the nation’s rules for arresting illegal immigrants. The government said Tuesday its immigration policy “targets … dangerous aliens,” including violent criminals, gang members, drug traffickers and others “who pose a danger to the national security and a risk to public safety” while Arizona’s law would force officials to cope with illegal immigrants who pose no danger. The lawsuit urges a federal judge in Phoenix to block Arizona’s law from taking effect later this month. It adds new weight on the side of the pending suits by immigrantsrights advocates, who say Arizona’s stepped-up enforcement would lead to racial profiling of Latinos. The move raises the political stakes for the White House. Obama made no public statement upon the filing of the lawsuit, but Attorney General Eric Holder and Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano — a former Arizona governor — said the state was out of line. Holder said a patchwork of state laws will only create more problems than it solves.

Israeli prime minister visits d.C.; Gaza raid, settlements not discussed
WASHINGTON (MCT) — President Barack Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, displaying a newfound friendship as leaders following their tumultuous beginning, pledged Tuesday to work together to promote face-to-face Middle East peace talks. Netanyahu went so far as to predict that direct peace negotiations could begin this summer and vowed “concrete steps” to move the process along in a “very robust way.” But neither leader indicated there had been significant progress during their White House meeting on issues clouding the prospect of discussions with Palestinian leaders. The two did not mention the deadly Israeli raid in May on a Gaza-bound aid flotilla, or Israel’s rebuff of international demands for an apology for the attack. They also avoided the potentially explosive issue of Jewish settlements. A freeze on settlements expires in September and neither Obama nor Netanyahu said whether the freeze should remain in place. As signs of the potential difficulty ahead, Obama pointed to “tensions and issues there that have to be resolved.” Israel did, however, announce that it would charge the first of its own soldiers for misconduct during its 22-day offensive in Gaza, a move seen as another concession to the international community and the United States.

Picasso’s paints. Sex in space. The power to heal dying sounds. These are among the subjects of 10 short plays at the ArtsCenter’s ninth annual “10 By 10 in the Triangle” theater festival in Carrboro. “You come to 10 By 10 and find an evening of incredible variety,” said Emily Ranii, the festival’s producer. Beginning at 8 p.m. today and spanning three weekends, the series features 10 actors performing original 10-minute plays. Even though the festival is well-established locally, it’s also known internationally within a close-knit community of writers and directors. More than 550 plays were submitted from as far away as Israel, Russia and Australia. The job of whittling down the applicant pool from hundreds to a mere 10 plays belonged to a panel of actors, directors and playwrights. Together they considered each application, looking for hard-hitting, witty and endearing scripts. The process was blind, as writers’ names weren’t revealed until all 10 plays were selected. Ranii spoke of the panel’s ability

to put together an evening of theater featuring eclectic plays that seem to complement each other. “What it really boils down to is that we’re looking for plays that we fall in love with,” said Ranii, also the ArtsCenter’s artistic director. Among the 10 featured playwrights this year is Carrboro resident David Rabinowitz. His play, “Somewhere Out There,” which will debut at the series, tells the tale of a boy with a Walkman who encounters sounds from space. “To me, this is very exciting,” Rabinowitz said. “It means more than getting into a play festival in New York or L.A.” Unlike the other playwrights, Rabinowitz is able to work closely with the play’s production, given his proximity to the venue. “This has a lot more meaning for me, that the people who are coming are the people I see in the grocery store,” he said. Also hailing from across the Triangle are the series’ 10 actors. Ranii noted that the short length and diversity of plays gives the actors a unique opportunity to master dynamic and challenging roles. Local multi-instrumentalist

Bryon Settle will perform live music, playing covers and original pieces to accompany the production. The ArtsCenter decided to offer one more weekend of performances than in previous years. “Every year there are more and more people who say, ‘Ugh, I missed it,’” Ranii said. Each weekend from today until July 25 will feature performances Thursday through Saturday at 8 p.m., and Sunday at 3 p.m. Staying true to the series’ theme, each show will cost $10 — the same price it has been for nine years. Those considering attending with children should keep in mind that the plays contain some strong language and sexual content. There is, however, no official age limit. A Playwright Gala that offers wine, food and conversation with four of the playwrights will be held after Saturday’s production. A “Meet the Artists” event will follow the July 17 performance and will also include wine and food, as well as the opportunity to meet with actors, designers and directors.

into Jordan Lake. Zinn decided to wait on the council’s rezoning decision so that she can build 87 mid-price condominiums at the lake rather than 17 single-family homes priced in the millions. “There is a need for more midprice range housing in Chapel Hill. We think Ayden Court will satisfy that need,” Zinn said. Council member Penny Rich said she thinks it is a smart move for Zinn to build condominiums. “We do not have enough land for more single-family developments. The new building plan in Chapel Hill is all about density.” Multi-family developments are also touted as more environmentally friendly. “The main argument is singlefamily developments take up a lot more space and use more of nature’s resources,” said Pete Andrews, a UNC professor of environmental policy. The federal government placed a 100-foot boundary near the lake to help protect them from pollution — but portions of the proposed development are very close to that line. “Any kind of development increases runoff because it substitutes absorbable ground for hard surfaces,” Andrews said. “The more runoff you have, the more oil, fertilizer and pesticides you have that can potentially go into the water source.” The council shot down Zinn’s original plan in 2007 due to concerns about stormwater runoff and erosion. “This is a very sensitive piece of land because of the stormwater issues. My big concern is that the stormwater be done right,” Rich said. Zinn redesigned the project by pulling the buildings further away from the lake, narrowing the streets and tightening the sides of the development. The council’s rules prohibited Zinn from introducing the new plans for consideration for a year, and Zinn only just finished the redesign. This is the first time in more than a decade where a project has come back before the council, Mayor Mark Kleinschmidt said in a June meeting. Zinn said she is not losing any money while waiting for the project to be approved. She said she hopes the council will approve the plan by spring. Contact the City Editor at

Keegan deWitt shows what inspires him
With a new album Nothing Shows, set to release July 13 via Daytrotter, Keegan DeWitt, who shares family with fellow Nashville outfit Roman Candle, is a busy man. Since the success of 2009’s Islands, the singer-songwriter has trotted the globe, touring extensively and finding time to record new material. Diversions Editor Linnie Greene chats with DeWitt about inspiration and his ever-present wanderlust. again and it got released in Europe. Not to be stupid and be in third person, but the person that I was when I created Islands is significantly younger and different than the person I created on Nothing Shows. Islands was a lot more about just really early youth and understanding friendships and when friendships sometimes turn into more than that. It’s a lot more kind of naive. Nothing Shows is more of Diversions: Your new — kind of understanding what it album is dramatically different means to get a little bit older and from Islands. Was that a conscious continue to have that same optimism and passion, but knowing decision on your part? how things are a little bit more. Keegan DeWitt: Well, Dive: I know poetry’s a big mainly because Islands is old. It’s something I created when I was influence for you. Did your interacstill in Brooklyn and it took like two tions with other art play a big role years to make. And then I came to on Nothing Shows? Nashville. And then it got released primarily influenced by poetry and visuals. I have a website, kind of like this secret website that I’ve hidden on my regular Keegan Dewitt website where every month I just collect images, like hundreds and hundreds of images. At the release show in Nashville here, we had them on all these massive screens the entire time. It’s kind of a cool way of mirroring the things that influenced us. For me, I guess you could — if you listen to the stuff you can get this, but a lot of the songs are about isolated moments. That’s why I feel like photos and films and poems capture that. seven years in Brooklyn and then I moved to Nashville, and they’re such opposing forces. In Nashville I gained being near Roman Candle and my family, but then I lost out on all that sort of fervent art culture that’s in New York. It felt like my identity was being split up into different things. I went to Paris and Rome on two different trips for a month each. When I was younger I went to Hong Kong and Fiji by myself for two months, and there’s something really great about being in a place where nobody speaks your language. And then I’ll go and sit with somebody in music row in Nashville and play it, and the look on their face is just kind of, “Huh?” I felt like Islands was really nice but it kind of sat a little bit on the cusp of what is this, what was I trying to achieve. The power of all this stuff seems more representative. People respond to different things, and I think everybody seems to be surprised in a positive way, not in the kitschy, “this is new just for the sake of being new” way. It’s tough to judge peoples’ responses to your stuff, because if it’s your mom she’s just like “It’s great,” you know? The singular thing that I try to capture in my music is that feeling that you have in your heart, that feeling where something really positive is happening. Nashville pride. How do you think your roots and sense of community affect your music?

KW: Well, it’s a good thing and a bad thing. I always seem to fight against the thing that I’m in the midst of. The whole time I was in Brooklyn I was always ready to move, and I feel a little bit the same way about Nashville. I’ve been really cynical about some of the music that comes out of here, but in a great way I’ve been really surprised and I’ve met some really amazing people — mainly Madi Diaz and Caitlin Rose. Madi’s an amazing talent, and Caitlin’s the same, and Roman Candle. All three of those people have been major contributors for me.

Libraries marks dawn of the summer of love
refined production focuses album
by LiNNie GreeNe
diversions editor

The Love Language Libraries

The Love Language’s followup to its self-titled debut was not recorded in a storage space, dining room or basement. Bid adieu to the lo-fi crackle of the band’s first release — in its wake, The Love Language shines. The most obvious and arresting contrast between the first record and the group’s new release under Merge Records is the smooth, airy texture that characterizes the recordings. Where its debut rattled through cacophonous, urgent pop songs, Libraries is dreamy and glossy, the sonic equivalent of a hazy ’70s film. It boasts David Cassidy romanticism and David Bowie ingenuity, and the shift in sound puts Stu McLamb’s intricate songwriting at the forefront. There are no distractions here — where the band’s past work brimmed with clamor and commotion, its sophomore effort is

an exercise in masterful restraint. And while this might disorient listeners expecting a second helping of lo-fi tambourine pop, the shiny new sound isn’t a total about-face. BJ Burton, the album’s producer and a Love Language member, balances the building melodies and tortured vocals with a tightrope walker’s precision. McLamb’s pristine vocals — once coated in grainy distortion — transmit with nuance and efficacy amid the drums and keyboards. The evolution from the band’s debut to its new release reveals The Love Language’s propensity for trend-defying songwriting. A great pop song is a great pop song, whether it’s polished to perfection or muddled in distortion, and Libraries is The Love Language’s declaration of this credo. But despite a markedly studio sound, certain songs still achieve the feeling of being blasted from

an FM radio at a ’60s beach bash. “Brittany’s Back” drives forward on a forceful beat, propelled by jangling guitars and searing vocals. McLamb’s heartthrob voice is at its peak here, wailing and crooning at varying volumes. He wields his vocals deftly, navigating between softness and the abrasive caterwaul that peppered the group’s debut. Unlike the general production of the record, McLamb’s vocals roam untamed, and it’s a nice contrast to the luster that coats each track. While there’s theoretically enough retro-pop sunshine to render Libraries stylized, the group sticks to concise songs that keep the album from veering into novelty. “Heart to Tell,” the first single, shimmies through 2 minutes and

27 seconds of all-too-brief bliss, blending cheeky lyrics with bright harmonies that emblazon themselves in the listener’s ears. It’s the ultimate earworm — compulsively singable, catchy yet still substantial. Where Top-40 hooks grow stale after a few listens, “Heart to Tell” and the rest of the tracks on the album bloom slowly. Each listen reveals a new layer, whether it’s a striking chord progression or a witty lyric. Libraries is a major departure from The Love Language’s first album, but ultimately, it’s a welcome one. Where DIY charm subsides, Burton’s refined production underscores a band with much more to offer than rattly, heartbroken hooks. True pop artists know the universality of a dexterous, multi-faceted song, and if Libraries is any indication, The Love Language is well versed in such a craft. Contact the Diversions Editor at

Complete the grid so each row, column and 3-by-3 box (in bold borders) contains every digit 1 to 9.

In the first few measures of “Wildwood,” the titular track off of Chatham County Line’s most recent album, Dave Wilson declares, “Don’t mistake me for a wild wood /A place to run and hide/… I’m not a place to hang your head/Run away from yourself.” It’s a candor that pervades the album in its entirety, and in a summer full of lo-fi pretension, Raleigh’s Chatham County Line is as organic and refreshing as a dash through a sprinkler on a July afternoon. Wildwood is an ideal distillation of the best Chatham County Line has offered on past records. There’s political commentary in the form of “Ghost of Woody Guthrie,” which adapts the ‘60s folk troubadour’s messages to a modern context. Insightful emotionalism on tracks like “Alone in New York” renders heartbreak without reverting to truisms. But most importantly, there’s an innate sense of songwriting knowhow — Dave Wilson and company have crafted a sturdy set of folk tunes that are instantly gripping and lastingly memorable. Where harmonies and melodic structures might initially seem obvious, a look beneath each song’s accessible veneer reveals intricacy and complexity that extends these songs’ shelf life. Sure, there are a few choruses that any listener can memorize after a couple of repeats, but Chatham County Line doesn’t prize simplicity at the cost of profundity. It’s a wirethin line between classic folk tropes

and modern musical aesthetics, and Wilson walks this narrow rope unflinchingly. “Crop Comes In,” with its immaculate harmonies and charming instrumentation, epitomizes the sweeping scale and instant engagement the group can establish in a seemingly unadorned folk tune. The track that follows, “Porcelain Doll,” is an equally telling statement about the power the group wields over its craft — where other songs mount to epic, extended harmonies and repetitions, this delicate track is brief and austere, an exposition of Wilson’s glass-clear voice and

classic folk sensibilities. There’s enough innovation to ensure that Wildwood is not a repetition of past successes — the band’s latest reinvents classic folk for a modern audience to outstanding effect. Wilson might not be a wild wood, but Chatham County Line’s invigorating folk is a pleasant escape from a highly stylized summer. Contact the Diversions Editor at

Orange schools prep for cuts
by AliciA bAnks
staff writer

full Of pie On the fOurth Of july

With a new school year approaching and no final budget, Orange County Schools Board of Education members, teachers and parents have high hopes for the upcoming year. Orange County Schools have been working around the restraints of doing “more with less,” a common phrase highlighting budget and teacher cuts during the past academic school years. On top of budget cuts, the board faces issues this year ranging from the county’s own achievement gap to school renovations. Although cuts have been an issue, Orange County Schools board member Anne Medenblik, who recently kept her seat in an election runoff, advocates for better teachers and technology. “I firmly believe in engaging the community in the schools,” Medenblik said. “I know, being a teacher, it doesn’t take very long to know whether that teacher is hav-

ing an effect on the student,” she said. County schools have been using a program, called Raising Achievement and Closing the Gap, to tackle the problem of low academic success for minority students by increasing the number of minority students taking advanced classes and hiring a wider diversity of teachers. Teresa Bunner, vice president of the Parent Teacher Student Association at Gravelly Hill Middle School in Efland, finds gathering parent participation within the school system a challenge, especially at the high school level, because kids are more vocal about independence. The county will also face redistricting, which was approved in the early spring. “Having the least impact on classrooms is my biggest priority,” said Donna Coffey, vice chairwoman for the Board of Education. “I think No. 1 would be on increasing the student-teacher ratio; it may even

mean preserving jobs.” Coffey said there are a lot of different needs the school board must meet. “It will be difficult for me to pinpoint one thing for (the board members) to focus on,” she said. Medenblik also wants to focus on school renovations. The county is on a 10-year capital plan, and with reduced funding, school safety hazards are a high priority for repairs. She said Orange High School has some “rickety” bleachers and Cedar Ridge High School is faced with land erosion. “If you don’t take care of it now, it will turn into much more concerning issues,” Medenblik said. Despite economic shortfalls, Bunner takes comfort in the progress Gravelly Hill has made. “We have campus beautification projects and cleanup,” Bunner said. “We support the staff in whatever way we are able to.”

Federal funds to fuel clean energy programs
uNC wants to create more green jobs
by katia martinez
staff writer

T h e U N C E nv i r o n m e n t a l Finance Center has become part of a new federal stimulus project focused on promoting the use of clean energy. The U.S. Department of Energy recently awarded $2.2 million in funds from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act designated for clean energy projects nationwide. The center is one of the organizations receiving part of this stimulus funding.

Although it has yet to be determined what percentage of the stimulus money the center will receive, the organization hopes to use the funding to provide assistance and education to local recipients of the Recovery Act’s Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant, which awarded stimulus money to state and local clean energy projects. “We don’t know how much m o n e y w e ’ r e g e t t i n g y e t ,” said Mar y Tiger, one of the Environmental Finance Center’s project directors.

“But no matter what amount it is, the money will help our programs. So we are excited about the stimulus.” Current development range from a stormwater ordinance model in collaboration with local municipalities and county commissioners to a funding model for an initiative to conserve the Upper Neuse River Basin watershed. But stimulus programs would look at clean energy. The center looks to use the stimulus money to start new programs that help communities meet their goals to use cleaner energy and create green jobs. “The money is specifically tar-

geted toward assisting cities and states achieve clean energy,” said Glenn Barnes, a project director with the center. But the environmental center also wants to ensure that the funding reaches the people and programs that it is intended to create. “We are helping to make sure that the money from the government goes toward maximizing results for the programs,” Tiger said. “We want to make sure that money doesn’t just go away.” The center is part of a network of university-based environmental finance centers that sees one of its major roles as providing finan-

cial training and policy analysis tools to other environmentally focused organizations to address the financial aspects of environmental protection. “The kind of work we do here at the EFC is we help government units do their jobs better and more efficiently,” Barnes said. “With this specific project our goal is to help institute programs in communities that want to promote cleaner energy.” Along with developing a recent online tool that allows Durham residents to monitor their energy use in their homes and vehicles, the center is active in several water pollution projects and numerous

waste management projects. The most recent project, the Sustainable Financing for State and Tribal Wetlands Program, has been educating the public about keeping wetlands clean for almost three years. “The tools we have developed are very useful and with all this information we are more able to help the communities,” one of the center’s project directors Shadi Eskaf said. “We have a lot of impact on not only North Carolina, but on the Southeast overall.” Contact University Editor at

Camps develop future athletes
by Jonathan Jones
sports editor

While the North Carolina athletes are enjoying another summer without practice or games, the UNC coaches are staying sharp by hosting their own camps and clinics both on and off campus. Seventeen UNC head coaches host their own camps that bring in kids from the elementary school age to potential Division-I athletes about to graduate from high school. Coaches not only work on fundamentals and other nuances of their individual sports, but also preach the importance of character. “Obviously we want to teach the kids and help develop them as lacrosse players,” UNC men’s lacrosse coach Joe Breschi said. “Initially I think that’s why they come to camp. “We in the recruiting process look for character kids. The message is pretty clear: the lacrosse aspect is why you’re here, the other things are academics and being a good person.” Breschi, who just finished the first team camp and has two more camps this summer, said he doesn’t use the clinics as a recruitment tool, but he is always on the lookout. “We’re able to attract kids from all over the country,” Breschi said. “There could be a diamond in the rough somewhere where a young man could jump up at a young age and catch our attention.” UNC women’s soccer coach Anson Dorrance could not say the same. The owner of 20 NCAA national titles, Dorrance said he

absolutely uses the camps as a vehicle for recruitment. “We hope that some of the top players that we haven’t seen will come in so we can look at them,” Dorrance said. “One year, seven of 11 starters on one North Carolina championship team were former campers.” The five-day, four-night CollegeBound Players’ Academy camp for women’s soccer will be held in late July for girls ages 12 to 18. The camp is set up to provide players “with the skills necessary to become a highly sought-after collegiatelevel soccer player,” according to the website. Currently, Dorrance and his staff are at Guilford College hosting their second five-day team camp in July. “What we’re trying to do is share with them the choices they have to make if they want to become elite,” Dorrance said. “They have to select to compete, select to have selfdiscipline and select to believe in themselves — the three most critcal platforms for any sport. “We tell stories of these great players that played here and their platforms of athletic greatness.” Other camps on campus include the Roy Williams Carolina Basketball Camp, which had two sessions in mid-June. Butch Davis and his staff held football camps for a week in June, having three linemen camps and other specialists camps. The Tar Heel baseball staff hosts seven camps in total, including two prospect skills camps that showcase current high schoolers who have potential to play

Division-I baseball. Since the NCAA does not allow sports to practice right now, some athletes help with the camps hosted by their coaches. Dorrance said he believes the camp participants are part of a great training platform. “They’re demonstrating the

Motorists and cyclists need to share the road
TO THE EDITOR: The Rules of the Road editorial published on July 1 served as a gentle reminder to the student and casual bike rider, however, it does not delve deeply enough into the reality of cycling in the area. It is true that North Carolina law considers a bicycle the same as a motorized vehicle with the same rights and responsibilities to the road, and it behooves the cyclist to ride predictably with traffic, observe traffic signals and signal when appropriate. (North Carolina law states that a cyclist must use hand signals when possible, i.e. when both hands are not required to maintain control of the bike.) However, motorists too often neglect their responsibilities to share the road and needlessly endanger cyclists who are well within their rights to the road. All too often this is simply the result of the car-centric culture combined with too many modern distractions and drivers who simply are unaware that state law stipulates that motorists must provide two feet of clearance for a cyclist at all times and that a cyclist is entitled to the entire travel lane. Thus far, 18 states have increased this buffer to three feet and in Europe the standard is now five feet. Although most cyclists do stay to the right as much as possible, there can be hazards on the shoulder that are not readily apparent to the motorist such as debris, storm grates or broken pavement that the cyclist must avoid and that require them to use more of the road than may be convenient for the motorist for a brief period of time. The vast majority of motorists in the area are accommodating to cyclists and hopefully do understand that cycling for many is a choice for those who wish to reduce their reliance on fossil fuels and stay in shape. For cyclists taking to the road, please set a good example. Ride with traffic, use hand signals when appropriate, make eye contact with motorists so they will know your intentions, and you will know that they see you. Wear bright colors and make use of lights. All we ask of motorists is a few feet and a little patience. Keith Longiotti UNC-CH Wilson Library North Carolina Collection after the UNC Board of Trustees authorized the Rams Club’s $70 million destruction/expansion of Kenan Stadium, “recent legislation cut in-state funding for out-of-state scholarship studentathletes at all 16 UNC-system universities, with UNC bearing the brunt of these cuts” landed at the door of the Rams Club (“Rams Club faces state budget cuts,” June 30). While it is impossible to save the noble trees at the east end of the stadium surrounding Kenan Field house, it was at least hoped that administrators would have foreseen the wisdom in retaining the timber rights for marketing these doomed specimen oaks and pines through the General Alumni Association with the proceeds funding campus landscaping. A Historic Timber Commission that could manage the disposal and distribution of timber from significant trees that are vanishing from the historic campus — at an alarming rate in recent years — is an idea that always dies when it falls down to the staff level where someone could actually take responsibility for something more than hauling off these trees to the wood pile. How much money could be raised for athletic scholarships if this timber were marketed properly? I am certain the Council of State would grant the board a waver for such fundraising with “state property” rather than allow it to be discarded and handed over to the building contractors as is the current practice. Since the boosters will now have to pony up more money to fund out-of-state athletes, it would seem that those trees, which once gave Kenan Stadium the title of “College Football’s Most Beautiful Setting” could offer their final gift from green leaves to greenbacks.

hile driving down the road the other day, I passed a BP gas station. I pass them often, but this one was noticeable. The gas pumps were tied down with bright yellow plastic strips, signs had been removed from the doors and darkness permeated the inside. That’s when it hit me. In the wake of dark, gushing oil, dying animals and livelihoods destroyed: Are we supposed to buy oil from the company responsible for a travesty, or do we support our local businesses? Such a moral question does not have a clear-cut answer. I come from LiFEsTyLE a family that COLUMNisT has always owned their own businesses and sought to promote others, but seeing pictures of oil-drenched animals makes that choice especially difficult. I decided to try to contact local owners to understand what they are dealing with in this situation. Out of the 10 BP gas stations in Chapel Hill, two are shut down, and the others barely talked to me. I was hung up on twice and another refused to give me the last name of the owner. A few said that they are not locally owned, but corporately owned. Only one was able to confirm that it was locally owned. Most businesses signed contracts with BP stating they would only use BP gasoline for the duration of the contract. My own searching through the Internet made the case even more interesting. Arguments for each side are strong. Many people argue BP will not be affected by a ban, while others disagree. Some are wondering whether their gas dollars are going to aid the cleanup of the spill and whether or not that would be a good thing. Under these circumstances, deciding can be difficult. Not only was I baffled by the responses from these gas stations, but their anger made it even harder for me to stay objective. As I contemplated their rude responses, I realized their underlying issue could be fear. Fear of losing a business, fear of saying the wrong thing or fear of a journalist. Across the country, celebrities of all forms are banding together in opposition of BP and in favor of a boycott. And on a more local level, a group recently protested in Durham. But before we jump on the bandwagon and agree on our frustration with BP, let’s take a step back and ask ourselves who we are really hurting. Let’s make sure we aren’t just finding a scapegoat to take out our anger on. Don’t just go along with what other people are doing or saying if you don’t know your facts. As you read this column, oil continues to gush in the Gulf of Mexico. White beaches and colorful wildlife is being ruined. But we are not any better than the problem or the company at fault if we don’t take the time to truly understand the impact. Regardless of the stance you take, whether you drive by BP or stop and fill up, make sure you’ve sorted through the facts first.


Boycott of big oil hits small businesses
Teachers deserve support over scholarship programs
tions were saved this year. North Carolina’s priority should be to teachers at the primary level, rather than scholarship programs that can find funding elsewhere. The N.C. General Assembly considered cuts to both the Morehead-Cain and athletic scholarships simultaneously. The Morehead-Cain financiers, however, lobbied hard, and while the Rams Club and other athletic booster clubs will be footing a larger bill, MoreheadCain recipients will retain instate tuition. Both of these scholarships are great examples of UNC extending its educational boundaries nationwide. The scholarships support students who show promise in leadership, academics and extracurricular activities — all institutions of the Carolina Way. But fundamental learning begins below the university level. The state budget should focus on ensuring the best education possible to K-12 students. When teachers are losing their jobs and salaries, it is unfair to allow Morehead-Cain Scholars to pay in-state tuition but deny the privilege to athletes. A lower quality K-12 education with larger class sizes and less individualized attention will diminish the pool of qualified applicants to the UNC system, compromising the state’s commitment to access to higher education.

Varsity budget blues


ut-of-state UNC athletes and K-12 teachers could unfairly pay the price of the state budget announced last week. The state cut funding for outof-state scholarship athletes. Sources of scholarship funding, including UNC’s Rams Club, will now have to cover outof-state tuition costs rather than the in-state rates they were previously afforded. Yet out-of-state recipients of the Morehead-Cain Scholarship will continue to be covered for in-state tuition. Affording breaks for scholarship programs looks unseemly against the backdrop of a budget that does not make up for 3,700 positions left unfilled in 2010 — only 1,600 K-12 teaching posi-

lthough the hunger strike may be over for three undocumented immigrant women, U.S. Sen. Kay Hagan, D-N.C., cannot continue to ignore their pleas for the DREAM Act. The Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors Act — or DREAM Act — is a bipartisan act that gives 65,000 undocumented high school graduates the chance to earn their residency. To garner attention for the act, Viridiana Martinez, UNC graduate Rosario Lopez and Loida Silva fasted for two weeks at a campsite set up in downtown Raleigh beginning June 14. The three activists hoped


Don’t allow the DREAM Act to be ignored
Hagan would consider sponsoring the bill. Yet Hagan all but ignored their request by stating that she is only interested in the DREAM Act as a part of comprehensive immigration reform. The DREAM Act, first introduced in Congress in 2001, would allow undocumented immigrant students who came to the U.S. before the age of 16 to gain residency in exchange for at least two years of military service or college. Even though some say the DREAM Act rewards those who break the law, it actually benefits many Americans as well as students, a fact that President Obama recognized in a speech last week. Taxpayers have already invested in undocumented students’ elementary and secondary education. By receiving a college education and residency, undocumented students would be able to acquire better-paying jobs and pay more taxes — returning taxpayers’ investments. As Baby Boomers retire, new legal immigrants are projected to provide $407 billion to Social Security during the next 50 years. With the large undocumented immigrant population in North Carolina, don’t let Hagan forget about the DREAM Act. Write or call her office to express to demand that it be put up for a vote.

The call of the wild
orth Carolina hunters will sport bright orange as they venture into the woods to hunt deer. To save life and limb, it pays to be educated on how to both reduce the chances of hazardous encounters and preserve the wildlife in our area. Local nonprofit organization CLAWS is striking a balance between hunters and wildlife preservation. The sport of deer hunting is one of the oldest and most respected Southern traditions. Rising deer populations in many states have bolstered the sport, encouraging the timehonored “thrill of the kill” mentality. However, wildlife experts believe that human activities

Nonprofit organization advocates wildlife education
like these are responsible for many of the risks to the human population. CLAWS works to educate the public on such risks while rescuing wild animals endangered throughout the county. The organization is involved with rehabilitating several species of wildlife, including 47 deer at their Orange County facility. CLAWS founder Kindra Mammone shares her strong mission to educate and protect animals with a balanced support of the hunting community. Mammone justly believes that hunters hold not only the responsibility to know the nature of the animals they hunt, but the awareness to stay away from urban areas when hunting. The idea of an educated hunting population celebrates both the animal itself and the very idea of hunting season. CLAWS offers a reasonable solution for people to follow. Everyone, regardless of their stance on hunting, can and should take advantage of the opportunity CLAWS is offering all of Orange County with their rehabilitation program and their workshops. On July 17, CLAWS will bring birds of prey to A Southern Season at University Mall to engage and educate the public about local wildlife. Just as Mammone and her husband, Vincent, grew their shared passion into this flourishing organization, residents of all ages can help build a community in tune with its wild neighbors.
