Fraternities trying dry rush Inquiry

early, alcohol-free plan may satisfy administrators

For head chef giovanni caligari, who opened trilussa la trattoria in 1994, cooking is personal. he leaves it to his customers: “you come, you like, or you don’t come back.”

Adapting to a comprehensive review and working under the watchful eyes of the University and Board of Trustees, the Greek system looks to remain autonomous. The Interfraternity Council, fraternities’ student-led governance organization, has instituted two sharp changes to the fall rush recruitment process — moving it to the beginning of the school year and making it alcohol-free.

Greek leaders said they hope these changes will satisfy the University and Board of Trustees, which is conducting a study examining the benefits of deferring rush to the spring semester or beyond — ideas that have been met with opposition from fraternities. “If one fraternity messes up in rush this semester, it messes it up for everyone,” said Davis Willingham, president of the UNC chapter of Delta Kappa Epsilon fraternity. Following the death of DKE president

Courtland Smith last fall, the University began an investigation into the Greek system that led to the hiring of a special adviser — UNC alumnus and fraternity member Jordan Whichard — to investigate and present a report to the board. Whichard presented his report to the board in the spring. Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs Winston Crisp said the University will look at the effectiveness of the IFC’s changes after the 14-day rush period — spanning from Aug. 20 to Sept. 2 — is finished, and then decide if action is needed.

school knew by June 21 of review
The North Carolina athletic department knew as early as June 21 that the NCAA was conducting a review of possible rules violations — three weeks before investigators arrived on campus. Twenty-four days after the first documented correspondence between UNC and the NCAA regarding the investigation, news broke of an ongoing review on campus, according to e-mail records. Athletic director Dick Baddour said his staff made no attempt to hide the review, but also did not have a discussion on whether or not to make an announcement to the public. “The assumption probably would have been that the public would know that,” Baddour said. “We didn’t expect to hide it, and our anticipation was that once we started the investigation, that the public would be aware of it. So I don’t know that we actually discussed that we would make an announcement.” In an e-mail dated June 21 sent to Amy Herman, assistant athletic director for compliance, NCAA investigator Chance Miller said he and Rachel Newman-Baker, director of agent, gambling and amateurism activities, would be on campus July 12 to interview student athletes. Defensive tackle Marvin Austin and wide receiver Greg Little, both seniors, were interviewed by investigators. UNC has not confirmed the investigation centers on the two players in order to “protect the integrity” of the review, but head coach Butch Davis has acknowledged that a decision has yet to be reached on their status for the LSU game on Sept. 4. Three days after the e-mail, UNC enlisted former NCAA investigator Rick Evrard to assist the school and counsel in not leaving “any stone unturned,” Baddour said. Evrard has been to Chapel Hill once since being contacted and Kevin Best, director of football communications, said his fees have been less than $1,000. “These can be very complicated situations,” Baddour said. “It’s obvious that we’ ve not been through anything like this

The DTH is hiring staff for the fall. Come to an interest meeting Wednesday at 5:30 p.m. in Student Union 3413. Applications are available at dailytarheel.com or at the newsroom at 151 E. Rosemary St. Positions are open for reporters, designers, copy editors, videographers, photographers and online journalists. No experience necessary.


Emil Kang has built a lot during the last five years — an internationally renowned performing arts series, a bustling artistic development office, his own job — but he still feels like he wants to do more. “I want the arts to be as big and as important as basketball on this campus,” said Kang, the University’s executive director for the arts. “I see a kind of intramural arts organization, where if a student wants to paint, or sign up for music lessons or sculpt, they can.” Kang dreams big. Yet in the five and a half years since former Chancellor James Moeser created the office of the executive director for the arts, his expansive vision for the arts at the University has largely succeeded. “The impact has been enormous,” Moeser said. Moeser’s administration selected Kang as Carolina’s artistic champion when an extensive renovation of Memorial Hall came to a close in late 2004, prompting a campus-wide audit of the arts. It was decided that the artistic community needed greater coordination and visibility, Moeser said. “A venue is only a space,” he said. “It’s what goes on in that space that matters.” That was left up to Kang, who, fresh off a successful stint as the president and executive director of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, was hired in 2004 as a result of a national search.

It was never a job Kang thought he wanted. “My goal had been to become the president of the New York Philharmonic,” Kang said. “But at 35, I was burnt out.” Still, Kang brought his connections from his previous career to his new position in Chapel Hill, creating the first season of Carolina Performing Arts — featuring Detroit Symphony regulars like Leonard Slatkin and Ithzak Perlman — in less than four months. “We knew then we had made the right choice,” Moeser said. “Emil did in four months what normally takes 12.” From the beginning, Kang was focused on making the University a true bright spot on the North American artistic circuit, he said. “It was always important to make the University a destination, and not just a stop,” Kang said. Kang continued to use his positive personal relationships with the larger international artistic community to boost the caliber of the annual performance series, bringing a diverse mix of globally renowned artists and innovative musical pairings. He launched ambitious commission programs, in which original works sponsored by his office premiered on the Memorial Hall stage. “It’s really important to have a place where artists want to come and perform,” said Michelle Bordner, director of artist relations for Carolina Performing Arts. “The season has become what it is today because of Emil’s positive relationships with artists.” But Kang’s relationships extend beyond the stage to encompass the larger student and faculty population on campus, just as his position

includes so much more than the yearly series at Memorial Hall. “Both directly and indirectly, a big part of Emil’s vision is to connect with students,” said Reed Colver, director of campus and community engagement for Carolina Performing Arts. Kang teaches a first year seminar on music and performance with Moeser, and he serves as a sort of informal adviser for dozens of students. “There’s just this immense spirit of generosity that Emil has,” said Amy Zhang, who graduated in 2009 and is now in an arts graduate

D u k e Un i v e r s i t y ’s C o l l e g e Republicans are determined to put last year’s discrimination allegations against the club behind them and start afresh. But the former chairman of the organization, Justin Robinette, who said in April he was impeached by the club’s execJustin utive board for his Robinette sexual orientawas impeached tion, is planning in April by Duke’s to take further Republican club action against the club. Members say he was impeached for poor leadership, fixing elections and neglecting to coordinate events

with UNC’s chapter, among other reasons — all of which Robinette says are false. “All that we’re really asking for is a declaratory judgement,” Robinette said. “The reasons that they gave were false, and something was taken from me that I worked hard for.” Certain events during the summer, such as the discovery of anti-gay and anti-Robinette graffiti on Duke’s East Campus and anonymous death threats received by Robinette and his supporters, have prompted another complaint against the College Republicans, Robinette said. He has joined with eight other plaintiffs to file another case in the student judiciary against the club. During the last trial in April, the judiciary did not find sufficient evidence to rule that the organization had discriminated against Robinette. “I think we stand a much better

shot,” said Cliff Satell, former member of the College Republicans and one of the plaintiffs. “We literally had less than 24 hours to prepare last time.” The student judiciary will be reviewing the new case on Aug. 28 and deciding whether or not they want to take it up again, said Matt Straus, chief justice of the student judiciary. College Republicans’ chairman Carter Boyle said that he does not think the judiciary will take up the case and that he does not consider his club to be in any trouble. “The best way to steer through the murky water is to keep focused on what our organization’s ideals are,” Boyle said. Robinette said he is also seeking to file a case against the College Republicans in civil court on charges of slander or civil conversion, which is wrongfully taking something away

Charges for student arrested at tancredo event deferred
The prosecution of a UNC student charged in April with possession of a weapon on school property was deferred June 28, according to the Orange County district attorney’s office. Bill Odette, 20, of Boston, was escorted out of the Student Union by two UNC Department of Public Safety officers during the April 26 speech of former U.S. Rep. Tom Tancredo after being spotted with a knife in his pocket, according to the police report. Odette said he was not informed of the conditions surrounding the deferral agreement. Such agreements often state that charges will be dismissed if there is no other charge or conviction within a certain amount of time. Odette added that authorities returned his confiscated 8-inch knife in July. After authorities took his folding pocket knife that night, Odette said he was taken to a mobile command center behind Davis Library, where he received a citation and was released. DPS spokesman Randy Young said at the time that Odette did not seem to be aware of the law and had no malicious intent.

Eleven months of meetings have left members of the UNC School of Dentistry’s dean search committee ridden with questions — and behind schedule. In May, the committee’s topchoice, University of Alabama at Birmingham School of Dentistry professor Gregg Gilbert, rejected an offer to replace John Williams as UNC’s next dentistry school dean. After the negotiations fell through, committee members were left ques-

I was disappointed the process hadn’t produced a new dean,” said Barbara Rimer, the committee’s chairwoman and dean of the UNC Gillings School of Global Public Health.

As construction continues on the school’s new research building on South Columbia Street, Rimer said the committee was searching for a candidate who combined research expertise with the fundraising savvy of a politician. She added that the next dean will also need the charisma to build a positive relationship with the new dentistry school at East Carolina University and to address the scarcity of dentists in some parts of the state.

orange County schools begin classes tomorrow
K-12 schools within the Orange County Schools system start classes Wednesday. The school day for elementary students lasts from 7:55 a.m. to 2:20 p.m. or 2:30 p.m., depending on the school. Middle school hours last from 8:20 a.m. to 3:20 p.m., and high school hours last from 8:45 a.m. to 3:45 p.m. Information on which school a child will attend and which bus stops are available can be found on the WebQuery system accesible through the district’s Web site.

When Neil Pedersen moved from Ohio to Chapel Hill more than 20 years ago, he never expected to leave his job as the longest-serving superintendent in the school district’s history. Pedersen, now 60, came to Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools in 1987 as an assistant superintendent. This month, he announced his plans to retire after the 2010-11 school year. Pedersen said he doesn’t have any other jobs lined up. He’s just ready for a break from the daily grind. “This has been a 24-7 job with lots of late nights,” he said. “I’d like to disrupt my routine and change the type of work I’m doing.” Pedersen and his wife Deborah have

two children in their thirties. They both live in California, and Pedersen said the job hasn’t given them much vacation time to visit their family. This year, the Pedersens will get to visit them over Thanksgiving break. Deborah said she will continue to work as the chief learn-and-earn officer for N.C. Virtual Public School, a state program that allows students to take classes online. She said that while she isn’t ready to retire, she is happy her husband can get away from the stress that accompanies his job. “I want him to get into his own rhythm when he doesn’t have to get up and put on his suit and tie everyday,” she said. School board chairman Mike Kelley said the search for a new superintendent is in progress.

Board of governors changes path
Focus on e∞ciency instead of growth

More than six months into litigation, the parents of a deceased local high school student dropped their lawsuit against the county and are continuing mediation with a former paramedic. Malinda and David Fraley filed a voluntary dismissal against Orange County and county emergency medical services July 29. However, their wrongful death action against former Orange County Emergency Services paramedic James Griffin as an individual is still intact. The Fraleys filed a complaint against the three parties in late January after their son, Atlas, died in his home after a football scrimmage on Aug. 12, 2008. Fraley, a Chapel Hill High School student, complained of muscle cramps and a headache at the scrimmage. After returning to an empty house, Fraley called 911 at about 1:45 p.m. to request intravenous fluids to treat what he said was dehydration. Griffin, who responded to Fr a l e y ’s c a l l , advised the 17-year-old to hydrate and work out his muscle cramps after allowing Fraley to sign his own release despite his status Atlas Fraley as a minor. died in his When Fraley’s home in 2008 parents arrived after football home less than practice. five hours later, they found their son dead on the floor, surrounded by bottles of water and Gatorade. Griffin resigned 15 days later. Fraley’s autopsy took more than seven months for the state’s chief medical examiner John Butts to complete. In the autopsy’s summary, Butts wrote that “there is no evidence that his death was due to other than natural causes,” but those causes remained undetermined. Donald Strickland, the Fraleys’ attorney, said the family decided to drop its case against the county due to a sovereign immunity defense strategy. Sovereign immunity is a law dating back to the 1870s that says a state or county cannot be sued unless it is covered by an insurance policy or there is a specific statute that allows litigation. “The reason for that is kind of obvious if you think about it,” said Chuck Kitchen, a sovereign immunity specialist and a lawyer at Stark Law Group. “If (the county) got a large judgement against them, they would be broke. They could not provide services anymore.” Griffin was originally sued both as an individual and in his capacity as a county paramedic, meaning the Fraleys could have been awarded damages from both Griffin himself and Orange County. While the county does have an insurance policy, Strickland said the coverage does not extend to cases in which sovereign immunity is a defense. Counties are usually protected from tort actions like negligence. “The policy covers Griffin, so

Another year of decreased funding from the state has forced the UNC-system Board of Governors to shift its priorities. The board will now focus on efficiency and making the most of already-available resources rather than starting new initiatives from scratch, said Hannah Gage, chairwoman of the board, at the Aug. 13 meeting. “In a time of diminishing resources, we also have to show the legislature that their investment in us is working by producing better graduation and retention rates,” Gage stated in an e-mail. “I hope this will be the year that we make a big philosophical shift to performance funding rather than enrollment growth funding,

but there are still some hurdles with that one,” she said. The shift will be centered around utilizing community colleges as feeders for transfer students and making improvements to online and distance education, Gage said. UNC-system President Erskine Bowles Chairwoman said using those Hannah Gage two avenues will is planning on help accommo- a year with less date the 84,000 state funds. students that are expected to be enrolled systemwide in the next decade. Continuing solely with the traditional higher education model

would not be sustainable as universities deal with deep budget cuts, Bowles said. “At a time when the state is starved for resources, it’s how we fit the numbers in the budget we see,” he said. He said the board will push universities to offer more degree programs and classes online. “There will be a huge investment in distance education,” he said. “We want to get way ahead of the curve.” Board members also have the major task of replacing Bowles, who announced his resignation Feb. 12. The search will be a top priority for board members in the fall semester, but they will also begin planning for a tighter budget for next year. One of the first steps will be reviewing the tuition plan that was drafted under Bowles’ leadership in 2006. The plan was intended

to make it more flexible for universities so that they can increase tuition in years of below-average state funding, Gage said. Members are looking at a slew of possibilities to balance the universities’ growing need for revenue with keeping tuition affordable for students. “I want it done before Erskine leaves,” Gage said. “ It’s too important a policy to leave out there.” Contact the State & National Editor at stntdesk@unc.edu.

County still failing to sell five properties
Property total value at $1.6 million
by Kelly Poe
AssistAnt City editor

Orange County has been trying to sell more than $1.6 million in surplus property since May, but only two of five properties have received bids — one of which is below the minimum property value set by the county. A complex sale process and additional restrictions on historic buildings have made it an especially long process, county officials said. “We have no latitude on the bid process in general,” said Pamela Jones, the county’s director of asset management and purchasing services. “It’s the law. That’s the reason we do it.” The county has three properties in Hillsborough, one in Chapel Hill and one in Mebane for sale. Selling the properties could bring in $1.6 million to the county budget. A property at 118 N. Churton St. in Hillsborough received a bid at $180,028.40, roughly $50,000 more than the minimum value.

That bid will be considered Sept. 7 at a county commissioners’ meeting. A former ABC store in Mebane received a bid of $3,500, but its minimum value is set at $5,000. Because this property is very small and lacks a lot of basic features such as septic service, it is the only property that was not professionally appraised. Jones said the county staff will recommend that the board seriously consider the bid. The properties will likely go through an upset bid process, County Manager Frank Clifton said. In an upset bid process, a minimum bid is set, after which private buyers can place bids. Once a reasonable bid is submitted, the board considers beginning an auction. “The county wants to sell the properties, but it’s not a fire sale. We’re not going to sell them cheap,” he said. Clifton said the county might

stop the bidding if it needs the properties. Some of the properties had previously received bids, Jones said, but the board stopped the bidding and ordered historical preservation easements on two properties on Churton Street on Nov. 5, 2009, for fear of demolition. This restarted the sale process. Cathleen Turner, director of the Piedmont regional office of Preservation North Carolina, said she doesn’t think the preservation easements should slow the sale of the properties. “At the end of the day, people who are interested in those buildings are going to be interested in those features protected by the easement,” she said. “These are important buildings. The right owner will come along.” Jones said the town only performs very basic maintenance, so while it is costing the town basic utilities, any cost is immaterial.

Pharmacy school joins with singapore uNC ranks 30th in
Program might “Many youngsters offer joint degree tend to stay in

News & World report

Staff writEr

UNC is looking to the east to give its pharmacy students more opportunities. The University’s Eshelman School of Pharmacy is in the early stages of planning a joint pharmacy degree with the National University of Singapore. The specifics of the program are unknown, as administrators are still assessing the pros and cons of the partnership. UNC Chancellor Holden Thorp and the NUS President Tan Chorh Chuan have endorsed a letter of intent, but the joint degree likely will not be launched until 2013 or 2014, pharmacy school Dean Bob Blouin said. Information about the partnership has also been shared with the UNC-system Board of Governors, he said. The board wanted more details

to make sure the new partnership would not detract from other instate partnerships, said Jim Deal, chairman of the board’s educational planning, policies and programs committee. The planning for the joint degree program will proceed depending on complete financial sponsorship by NUS. Establishing a footprint in Asia will yield dividends for the state economy in many ways, Blouin said. “Many businesses and universities are trying to figure out how to view themselves in the flat world,” he said. “The UNC brand in Singapore will be powerful and helpful.” There are already several pharmaceutical companies like

GlaxoSmithKline with locations in both North Carolina and Singapore, he said. But UNC will only continue with the planning process if there is no brain or resource drain for the state, Blouin said. He also said UNC has been carefully tracking the partnership between Duke University School of Medicine and NUS as a point of reference. “For Duke, the main reason was to develop a global presence in research and medical education and to develop and innovate medical education,” said Ranga Krishnan, dean of the Duke-NUS program. Blouin said the partnership with NUS will not affect the in-state accreditation partnerships between UNC and Elizabeth City State

University and UNC-Asheville. ECSU does not have its own pharmacy school because it would not make sense for the state to pay for its development when UNC has such a reputable school, said ECSU Chancellor Willie Gilchrist. However, UNC’s pharmacy school is able to accredit students at ECSU in the hope that more pharmacists will be working in the northeastern part of the state, where there is great demand, he said. “Many youngsters tend to stay in the areas they are degreed in,” he said. UNC ’s partnerships allow demands for pharmacists to be met across the state, Blouin said. Contact the State & National Editor at stntdesk@unc.edu.

Despite a recent drop in a prominent college ranking report, University officials said they remain confident in UNC’s status as one of the nation’s top schools. In its annual ranking of national universities released Aug. 17, U.S. News & World Report listed UNC as the 30th best school in the country — a drop of two spots from last year. UNC had previously tied two private schools, Tufts University and Wake Forest University, at 28th. But for the 10th consecutive year, UNC maintained the ranking that officials said they value the most: a top-five ranking among public universities. “Overall this is very reassuring,” said Executive Associate Provost Ron Strauss. “There is no cause for concern, but actually a cause for pride, since we stand at the top of the nation’s public universities.” Overall, the University of California–Berkeley ranked 22nd, the University of California--Los Angeles, Wake Forest University and the University of Virginia tied at 25th and the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor ranked 29th. All five public schools in the top 30 spots went down in the overall ranking, though their numerical scores were identical to last year’s. UNC’s score remained at 70 on a scale of 100. “That illustrates precisely why I again would caution you not read too much into these results,”

Breakdown of the Rankings
1st among public universities for the 6th consecutive year and 14th overall in “Great Schools, Great Prices” 4th among publics for “least debt” and 10th overall a 97 percent average firstyear retention rate an 87 percent average sixyear graduation rate tied for 22nd (with seven other schools) on an academic reputation rating by high school guidance counselors tied for 7th among the best undergraduate business programs.
Chancellor Holden Thorp wrote Monday in an e-mail to the Board of Trustees. Thorp added that the rankings are largely arbitrary, noting how the same 30 schools have traded spots for the past six years. Strauss said he wouldn’t mind seeing a higher score in the future, but that some of the categories of consideration naturally favor private schools, such as alumni donations and admissions selectivity. Schools are ranked in the report by categories ranging from graduation rates and freshman retention to the rate of alumni giving. For the first time, the magazine used the ratings of high school guidance counselors to judge schools. Among public schools, UNC tied for second with Georgia Institute of Technology and 22nd overall. Stephen Farmer, the associate provost and director of undergraduate admissions, said he didn’t think the drop would affect prospective applicants’ interest in UNC. “People certainly pay attention to ratings, but they don’t make decisions for anyone,” he said. Miranda Wodarski, a freshman from Cary, said she strongly considered the ranks of the schools she applied to, but only as a small piece in a larger puzzle. “Two spots in the whole nation is not a big factor,” she said. “If it were 20 spots, that would be weird.” Contact the University Editor at udesk@unc.edu.

trilussa chef Caligari’s style aims to please
said dean smith among regulars
by Christina taylor
assistant City Editor

Sylvia Buchholz and Seymoure Freed walked into Trilussa La Trattoria in search of a special dish to celebrate Buchholz’s birthday: paella. After searching the menu, they were disappointed to find that the European seafood dish was not offered. But no sooner had they expressed their dismay than two specially made dishes appeared in front of them, courtesy of head chef Giovanni Caligari. “We were awfully impressed,” Buchholz said. “A restaurant like this is such a pleasure.” Caligari opened Trilussa in 1994, but becoming a cook and owner of a gourmet restaurant at 401 West Franklin Street was not always his first priority. “I’m a master’s degree in architecture in Rome,” said Caligari, who was born in Florence, Italy. “I tried in New York to do engineering, but it didn’t work for me.” Caligari began a construction company in New York that specialized in marble and stone, but it, too, was unsuccessful. Things started looking up when

a friend offered Caligari some open space in a building he bought. “He says, ‘Why don’t you open some Italian restaurant?’” Caligari said. “He pushed me, and I start from there.” Caligari began opening restaurants throughout New York City in Greenwich Village, Brooklyn and Manhattan, and Queens. “I become cook because I have no choice,” Caligari said. “I learn from losing.” After moving to Chapel Hill and getting married, Caligari opened Trilussa La Trattoria, a restaurant serving Southern Italian-style food. Caligari works as the head chef and cooks everything himself, with occasional helpers to cut the salad. “I like to cook because I am the owner and the chef, and I can do whatever I want,” he said. “I want to cook in my style. The chef makes the restaurant.” Morgan Ezzell, a UNC junior, has worked for Caligari for three weeks and said the chef keeps the staff on their toes. “It’s crazy but fun,” she said. “He cooks dinner for us every night. My favorite dish is his Caesar salad.”

Caligari said he uses only fresh ingredients, including vegetables and herbs he grows in his own garden. “Everything is fresh so you can feel the fresh,” he said. “I also deal only with Italian products.” Caligari said that through Trilussa, he hopes to bring the cooking style of his home country to his Chapel Hill patrons. “Every year I do Christmas for Dean Smith’s family and birthday,” he said. “I make special like in Italy. Like a homemade homemade.” Caligari said he prepares 40 different items for the dinners and it takes two days to prep. “I do it for him,” he said. Now cooking has become a significant part of Caligari’s life, one that he shares with his wife, his two sons who work at Trilussa and his customers. “People see Italian restaurant as pizza and pasta,” he said. “It’s not just that. “I want it to be homemade cooking for the family.” But Caligari said he won’t both-

Members of the UNC School of Journalism and Mass Communication faculty weighed in last month on a dispute over a controversial three-part documentary by UNC-TV. The documentary alleged environmental and personal safetyrelated misconduct by Alcoa, a leading aluminum manufacturer. After attracting significant attention, the state-funded media outlet requested that the school review the material. The decision to review the documentary was unprecedented for both the station and the school, officials from both parties said. While a team of professors assembled by the journalism school were still working on the report evaluating the film, officials from UNC-TV asked the team to postpone the review. Professor Leroy Towns, a member of the three-person committee that wrote the report, said the team obliged to that request. Alcoa later obtained the incomplete report through a public records request. The company then released the draft composed by UNC professors Andy Bechtel, Jim Hefner and Towns. After questioning whether the documentary should have been aired, the team issued a “collective no.” The documentary was produced by UNC-TV reporter Eszter Vajda and focused on Alcoa’s presence on the Yadkin River. The documentary came under scrutiny when other media outlets reported that Vajda received help from her friend, researcher Martin Sansone, who received $3,000 from the N.C. Water Rights Committee, an organization opposed to Alcoa’s continued presence on the Yadkin River. The report criticized this transaction, among other parts of the documentary’s production. “That’s not journalism. That’s why you can’t even call it a documentary,” said Kevin Lowery, an Alcoa spokes-

man, of UNC-TV’s film. The report also questioned the editorial process, citing the station’s permission “for the reporter to control the final work product.” “This was a real aberration in a number of ways,” Volstad said. Soon after news broke of the situation, Vajda was released from UNC-TV, said Gail Zimmermann, the station’s associate general manager. Steve Volstad, communications director for UNC-TV, declined to comment on whether the two were related. Volstad said the station requested a copy of the draft report that was sent to Alcoa. He added that the Alcoa draft was the first the station had seen of the report. T h e d o c u - reporter m e n t a r y w a s Eszter Vajda also screened at was released the N.C. General from her job at Assembly’s sec- unc-tv. ond senate judiciary committee before it was aired. State legislators requested that UNC-TV grant the reporter more control after rumors emerged that UNC-TV was working to suppress the story, said Volstad, who added that those rumors were untrue. According to a WUNC blog post, N.C. Sen. Fletcher Hartsell, R-Cabarrus, subpoenaed the documentary before its debut. Some members of the state government and Alcoa currently have a dispute over control of the Yadkin River’s electrical production capabilities. Hartsell could not be reached for comment. UNC-TV receives funding from the state, and the report criticizes the station for not standing up to the legislators despite their holding the purse strings. “It is our view that UNC-TV management should have not wavered in light of such criticism; should have maintained editorial control and reported the story,” the report read.

Willingham said the new rush period will avoid giving freshmen the perception that fraternity houses are just sources of free alcohol. “It was setting a bad precedent. Alcohol was plentiful in a lot of places,” he said. IFC President Tucker Piner said the earlier rush will likely end the pledging process before midterm exams, which might improve fraternity members’ grades. Greek leaders said an incidentfree rush is crucial in light of the board’s consideration of deferring rush. “They like for all the problems to go away on their own, and that’s self-governing tradition of the university, Robinette said. But many believe that the university should be more involved. Bridget Gomez, a junior at Duke, created a Facebook group — “Petition to Duke University to Take Action Against the DCR.” The group had 327 members yesterday. The university’s Vice President for Student Affairs, Larry Moneta, declined to comment on Duke’s plans in dealing with the allegations. “It’s a new year and I’m looking forward to new students and new opportunities. I don’t really have anything to add,” Moneta wrote in an e-mail. Satell said the university is not Performing Arts’ marketing and communications coordinator and a graduate of the class of 2009.

Willingham said none of the chapter presidents support a policy of deferred rush because it would eliminate the immediate support group the Greek system gives members from the beginning of the year. Piner and Willingham said some members of the Greek system are upset about the earlier rush this year. “A lot of guys want to do what they want to do. They don’t want to abide by these new rush rules,” Willingham said. “What I’ve said to them is, ‘How has that worked for us in the past?’” Contact the University Editor at udesk@unc.edu. getting involved because administrators are trying to minimize the negative publicity that Duke has received as a result of the recent events.

Greek leaders and Crisp said the goal of the rush changes was to minimize the potential for academic and alcohol-related problems for fraternity members and students interested in rushing. “In the past, the first few weeks haven’t been regulated. It’s kind of a free-for-all,” Willingham said. “And that’s not good for anyone.” Crisp said he hoped the changes would also eliminate any pressure fraternities feel to conduct “underground rush.” Before the changes, fraternity leaders said houses were permitted to have alcohol in the house but were prohibited from supplying

The American Civil Liberties Union is in the process of reviewing Robinette’s case to see whether or not the organization will be assisting him if he chooses to go ahead with the civil charges.

They want the student judiciary to resolve the issue to maintain the

There isn’t exactly a theme for this year’s Carolina Performing Arts series. It follows a pattern that in years past has been successful — internationally renowned musical acts, creative and unlikely genre-bending pairings, original commission premieres. “It’ll be such a motley collection of artists,” said Reed Colver, director of campus and community engagement for Carolina Performing Arts. “Each performance is unlike anything else — they are completely unique.” The season began August 17, as famed cellist Yo-Yo Ma and his Silk Road Ensemble offered a sweeping variety of world music to a sold-out audience. “I’m one hundred percent sure that none of the pieces were written by a dead European guy,” said Harry Kaplowtiz, marketing manager for Carolina Performing Arts. More than 300 students took advantage of reduced-price tickets for the opening show. In a change from past ticketing policies, all student seats are $10 this season. The season is dotted with notable performances, but November’s presentation of Sutra, a dance ensemble combining Chinese tradition and European choreogra-

phy, leaves most members of the office of the executive director for the arts almost speechless. “It’s a stunning work,” said Sean McKeithan, Carolina Performing Arts marketing and communications coordinator. “I’ve been hypnotically watching videos of the group on YouTube.” The work, a collaboration between Chinese monks from the storied Shaolin Temple and the Belgian-Moroccan choreographer Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, could prove to be a highlight of the season. “It’ll be truly a fascinating experience,” said Michelle Bordner, director of artist relations for Carolina Performing Arts. But other performances may draw large audiences this year. Legendary jazz pianist Chick Corea will lead an ensemble in late September, followed soon after by renowned classical pianist Leon Fleisher. A n d t h e w i l d l y i nv e n t i v e Handspring Puppet Company returns to UNC in April after a 3- and-a-half year absence, presenting an interactive spectacle of puppetry and drama.

The St. Petersburg Philharmonic will headline in April, continuing a University’s spokesman for the NCAA investigation and asked that Davis be allowed to focus on football.

Pedestrian safety uNC system gets cash projects completed for research equipment
By Jake Filip
staff writer

Nearly $700,000 of pedestrian safety improvement projects in Chapel Hill have come to a wrap, and now the town is studying how effective they will be. Most of the money has been put toward building pedestrian refuge islands and crosswalks over the summer, though officials say it’s still unclear how the changes will play out. “It’s too early to judge how effective the new crosswalks are,” said Chapel Hill engineering services manager Kumar Neppalli. “At the end of the year, we will be able to tell by the number of accidents at these intersections, evaluate and make changes if needed.” Neppalli said there has been one accident reported since the new crosswalks were constructed. “There were three cars stopped at the crosswalk, and (the) fourth failed to stop,” Neppalli said. “Right now we are currently taking input from the Public Safety Department, and we are seeing what else we can do to improve safety and decrease accidents.”

In July, the town began conducting a follow-up survey to judge how effective the crosswalk changes are. The survey is expected to produce results by the end of the year. After studies in 2003 found some zones in Chapel Hill pose a threat to pedestrians, the town began making changes to improve pedestrian safety. Plans to build these crosswalks were formulated three years ago and finally came to fruition after receiving funding last fall. The funds Chapel Hill received from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act were dispersed into several different projects around town, including crosswalks, disability ramps and sidewalks. But though the town is anticipating greater pedestrian safety from the crosswalks, some residents are questioning their effectiveness. “I hadn’t really even noticed that they put the crosswalks in,” Chapel Hill resident Evelyn Ross said. “They aren’t really stopping people from running across the street or jaywalking either.” Public Information Officer Catherine Lazorko said the town is

N.C. legislature pledges $22 million “Look at the busihigher education committee, said the state legislature felt funding the university’s request for equipment was critical to the economic health of the state. “We don’t want to cut the fundamentals more than we need to move forward,” Foriest said. “Look at the businesses that have started up as a result of the core investments we have made.” He said investment in research and technology has always paid off for North Carolina, citing the Research Triangle Park’s development as an example. Individual campuses will submit proposals for equipment in priority order by Oct. 1, and the system will make a decision by Nov. 1, Leath said. He also said he wants to make sure the UNC system avoids purchasing any redundant equiment. After surveying all the campuses’ needs, the system determined that $60 million total is needed in new equipment, Leath said. “We got a third of all our needs met in one year,” he said. But it is still too early to determine what kind of equipment UNC-CH will request from the system, Barbara Entwisle, interim vice chancellor for research and economic development at UNCCH, stated in an e-mail.

still enthusiastic about the improvements but expects that it will take some time for people to understand how to use the crosswalks properly before they can increase safety. “Before we can see any changes in safety, we need people to learn how to use the crosswalks,” Lazorko said. “It’s expected that there will be a learning period before, and people need to learn best how to use them.” Contact the City Editor at citydesk@unc.edu.

While few funding requests from the N.C. General Assembly have been met in the past two years, researchers at UNC-system schools were fortunate. Despite decreasing their funding by $70 million, the state legislature allocated $22 million for science and research equipment for the UNC system — the first time the state has ever given money to universities for this purpose. The new funding will enhance the universities’ ability to obtain research grants, said Steven Leath, vice president for research for the UNC system. Grants go to scientists pursuing the most cutting-edge work, and UNC-system schools need the best equipment to conduct grantattracting research, Leath said. “(The $22 million) will give us a competitive advantage with our sister states,” Leath said.

Leath said he thought the legislature was swayed by the system’s track record of obtaining grants and wanted to increase the likelihood of campuses being awarded more. The state has traditionally given money to the community college system for science and research equipment, but never to the UNC system, he said. “We were very pleased to see this support for the university, especially in these lean times,” Entwisle said. “It will really make a difference.” Foriest said the legislature wanted the state to be ready with new equipment to make investments. “Science and technology, many of us believe, are the way of the future,” he said. “These are some things we can’t afford not to have.” Contact the State & National Editor at stntdesk@unc.edu.

of economic struggle occasionally entail difficulties filling high-level academic positions. “People are risk-averse. It’s emblematic of the times,” said Rimer, adding that the smaller committee is more amendable to confidentiality. “If word gets out, that could jeopardize your current job.” Executive Associate Provost Ron Strauss was among the final three candidates but said he has opted not to reenter the applicant pool. To have a permanent dean selected as early as the end of the semester, Carney said he will be taking a more involved role, making personal calls to candidates. He said the search will also be more behind-the-scenes than before, when finalists publicly introduced themselves in forums. “There are people who do not emerge in those public searches,” he said. “We undoubtedly lost out on some candidates.”

Carney said Gilbert, a UNC alumnus, rejected the offer. “When the candidate rejected the offer, which was quite generous, we were stuck,” Carney said. And though Gilbert’s rejection sent the committee reeling, Rimer said a more refined image of the ideal candidate came as a silver lining to the grim prospect of continuing the search through the summer. “It wasn’t going back to the beginning,” she said. “We had worked out what kind of person we were looking for. Now it’s more efficient.” Rimer and Carney said the formation of a smaller executive committee has also allowed for more efficiency. “It was an attempt to be nimbler, to move faster,” Rimer said of the decision to cut the search committee from 15 to eight members. The committee’s downsizing also came in response to a lesson members learned the hard way: Times

we went ahead and dismissed the claims that had a sovereign immunity defense,” Strickland said. “He’s the one we contend was negligent anyway.” Col. Frank Montes de Oca, the county’s emergency services director, said the department still hasn’t been served with any formal notification of dismissal and is waiting to see what it all means. “Emergency Medical Services is still working with the county legal department to make sure the proper notification has been made,” Montes de Oca said. Superior Court Judge Carl R. Fox ordered the Fraleys, Griffin and the county to enter mediation in April. Mediators work to help parties come to agreements on how to resolve their conflicts out of the courtroom. Strickland said another mediation will be scheduled with Griffin, but a trial date is still planned for Nov. 29. Griffin was allowed to keep his paramedic credentials after a seven-member disciplinary review board decided unanimously to take no action against him in June 2009. However, Griffin is not allowed to practice in Orange County until he repeats training. Contact the City Editor at citydesk@unc.edu.

krispy kreme to open soon

assistant City editor

rock the vote

Students will no longer have to venture into N.C. State University territory to get their “hot now” fix. Krispy Kreme has pledged to give away about 15,000 doughnuts in the coming year as part of its grand opening celebration scheduled for 6 a.m. Wednesday. Store grand openings typically bring anywhere from 100 to 150 people in line, no matter how early, said Steve Wymer, Krispy Kreme’s N.C. marketing manager. “We typically have several campers that camp out the night before we open, as much as two days ahead of the opening,” Wymer said. Junior Will Barringer said that while he won’t be camping out for the opening, he’s especially excited for the store because the chain originated in his hometown of Winston-Salem in 1937. “It’s good to be on Franklin because there’s a bunch of other dessert places, but they’re most-

ly ice cream or frozen yogurt,” Barringer said. “It’s good to have an alternative.” Chapel Hill police aren’t sending any officers for crowd control, but department spokesman Lt. Kevin Gunter said he does expect to see a few officers around the new location. “I’m guessing they’re like everybody else and like coffee and doughnuts,” he said. “I’m assuming you may see some officers there, but I haven’t heard anybody buzzing about it.” The smaller location won’t have a full doughnut factory. Instead, doughnuts will be partially made in a nearby factory store and delivered to the new location for further cooking and glazing. At the Person Street location in Raleigh, currently the closest store to Chapel Hill, the most popular doughnuts are original glazed, chocolate iced glazed, chocolate iced cream-filled and raspberryfilled. In addition to giveaways for the first patrons, Krispy Kreme is hiding 12 numbered T-shirts and

tar Heels chase pro Women’s soccer takes careers in Cape Cod two wins over weekend

League involves alumni, scouts
by AAron tAube
assistaNt sports editor

Summer is supposed to be a time of relaxation for college students, a chance to recharge their batteries after a long and stressful school year. But while some were lounging at the beach, nine members of the UNC baseball team were hard at work, running down fly balls and chasing after their dreams on the fields of the Cape Cod Baseball League. The league is a 115-year-old wooden-bat summer league for college baseball players with a seemingly endless list of major league alumni that includes current superstars Evan Longoria, Mark Teixeira and Tim Lincecum. By collecting elite collegiate talent from across the country, the league provides the premier platform for major league hopefuls to show off their skills to the handful of scouts who come to every game. “They’re playing against the best college players throughout the country,” UNC coach Mike Fox said. “They’re getting to play against terrific competition, so it can only help them.” Aside from being a breeding ground for future pro ball players, the Cape Cod League is special for the way the people of Cape Cod, Mass., have devoted themselves to the league throughout the years. An average of 1,245 fans attended each game during the 2010 season, with 5,391 showing up for the final game of this year’s title series. “It’s unreal,” UNC pitcher Garrett Davis said of his two summers in the league. “It’s a big deal up there; they take it really seriously. That’s what makes it so cool, I think.” Just as they do in the major leagues, Cape Cod League teams usually play either six or seven games a week. Games are played either in the afternoon or evening, depending on whether the game is being played at a field with lights. In the mornings, players work either as baseball camp counselors or as field hands and then go to practice or to the gym before the game. “You’re going to have days when

UNC sophomore pitcher Chris Munnelly allowed only six runs in seven appearances for the Cape Cod league’s Chatham anglers over the summer.
you don’t feel your best and days where you almost feel like you can’t make it,” Davis said. “But you’ve just got to push through it, if that’s what you want to do.” Despite the grind, both Davis and fellow UNC and Chatham Anglers pitcher Chris Munnelly raved about their time in Massachusetts. They made friendships with baseball players from all over the nation and tested themselves daily against the best that college baseball has to offer. And even if their major league dreams never come to fruition and all of their hard work goes for naught, it is unlikely that either will soon forget his summer at the Cape. “It’s just pure baseball up there,” Munnelly said. “You don’t have to worry about all the distractions and all the hype of college baseball. It’s just like you’re going out there and playing the game for the game.” Contact the Sports Editor at sports@unc.edu.

It was déjà vu this weekend for the North Carolina women’s soccer team, as it returned to the site of last year’s national championship win for a pair of tournament matchups in Aggie Stadium. It may be a new season, but the result was still the same. The Tar Heels cruised in the season-opening tournament WoMen’s with matchsoccer ing 3-0 wins UNC 3 against No. 8 texas a&M 0 Texas A&M and Michigan State. “We kind of UNC 3 Michigan st. 0 proved ourselves that we are still a team that needs to be reckoned with,” forward Alyssa Rich said. “We have so much fight left in us. We may be young, but we’re still a challenge.” Rich scored the first goal in Sunday’s matchup against the Spartans in the fifth minute when she tapped in junior forward Courtney Jones’ pass in front of the goal. Senior Meghan Klingenberg struck first against the Aggies on Friday less than three minutes into the game, setting the pace for the shutout victory. UNC’s three starting seniors contributed with either a score or an assist against Texas A&M. “We were able to settle in after that and play our game,” Klingenberg said. “I think that it was really good that we were able to score early so you could get a sense of ‘okay, we’re good.’” Six different Tar Heels scored North Carolina’s six total goals this weekend, a testament to the depth of the offense. Defensively, head coach Anson Dorrance was quick to praise the performance of freshman goalie Anna Sieloff, who played more than 160 minutes without allowing a goal. “It really felt like Anna’s performance was wonderful not only for a freshman goalkeeper but for a new defense, to have a shutout against that caliber of team,” Dorrance said. “For a young defense to do so well, I was absolutely ecstatic.” Dating back to last year, the Tar Heels have shut out 29 of their last

Junior forward Merritt Mathias played for UNC during her freshman and sophomore years, but decided to transfer to Texas A&M in hopes of getting more playing time.

happy to see the transfer thrive. “I was pleased that Merritt was starting, I was pleased that she played well, and I was pleased that we won the game,” Dorrance said. “The best chance that A&M had all game was Merritt’s shot, so I was proud that one of our former players played exceptionally well.” Contact the Sports Editor at sports@unc.edu.

The Daily Tar Heel

experience is key to No. 1 recruiting class men’s soccer season boosts cross country
by megan walsh
assistant sports editor

In its 2010 season, the North Carolina men’s soccer team is picking up right where it left off. Last year’s Tar Heels were bested in a 5-4 penalty-kick loss to undefeated Akron in the NCAA College Cup semifinals. And the first team on deck for UNC’s 2010 season is none other than the Akron Zips again, who were recently ranked No. 1 in the nation by the NSCAA. But the No. 4 Tar Heels aren’t worried about the matchup. After playing three exhibition games all-american — one of which Billy Schuler resulted in a 1-0 is the leading returning goal win against UNCscorer for UnC Wilmington on a last-minute goal by redshirt freshman Josh Rice — the rematch scheduled for Sept. 3 will be looked at as just another game for the veteran team. “We’re not preparing for them any different than we prepare for anyone else,” coach Elmar Bolowich said.

“The fact that we play Akron is fine but doesn’t necessarily do anything — we are just excited to play. Akron will be a great measuring stick.” After finishing last season with a 16-2-4 record, UNC returns 18 highly experienced players to a team led by six seniors. “We have gone twice to the College Cup, and most of the players on the team have experienced this,” Bolowich said. “Going through playoffs and matches where you make one mistake and you could be out, and you make one good play and you could go through, is crucial in learning how to manage games.” The Tar Heels will also benefit from returning two of their top three leading scorers from last season. Senior Michael Farfan and junior Billy Schuler were recently named to the College Soccer News Pre-Season All-America first and second teams, respectively. Although North Carolina’s defense took a hit when two key defenders, Zach Loyd and Jordan Graye, were drafted to the MLS in the offseason, Bolowich is confident that the position is shaping up before the start of the season.

Senior Jalil Anibaba, who transferred this year from UC Santa Clara for his final year of eligibility, brings collegiate experience to the central defender position, while senior Dustin McCarty is adjusting to his new position at outside back after making the switch from the midfield. Scott Goodwin, a sophomore who notched a 3-0 record in four appearances in goal last season, will serve as the last line of the Tar Heels’ defense, using his experience to fill the void left by keeper Brooks Haggerty’s graduation. Along with the changes in the lineup, nine true freshmen round out the team’s roster, and Bolowich is eager to see who will step up to make plays as the team takes the season one game at a time — beginning with Akron. “It’s not really redemption (now), but it would be nice to beat them,” Farfan said. “All the games matter, but hopefully we’ll make it through the season, and our redemption will be winning the national championship.”

By all accounts, the North Carolina cross country program was solid last fall. The women finished fifth at the ACC Championships and the NCAA Southeast Regional Championships. The men finished sixth at both. But head coach Peter Watson is hoping to take the next step. With a men’s recruiting class named No. 1 in the country and an impressive six additions on the Cross country women’s side, the coach Peter Watson enters Tar Heels are on his second year the right track. For the men, with the team success will rely largely on the performance of two standouts from last season — sophomore All-Region runners Evan Watchempino and Adam Cunningham — and the development of a stellar freshman class. In both departments, Watson is Contact the Sports Editor brimming with confidence. “They both had fantastic track at sports@unc.edu.

seasons where they both ran into the UNC all-time track list,” Watson said. Cunningham ran a 4:00:92 mile, the third fastest time in school history, while Watchempino marked his place in the record books with a 29:23.81 in the 10,000-meter run — the fifth fastest in North Carolina history. “We definitely have to be leaders of the team,” Cunningham said. “We have to show them by our example how to put the work in at practice and how to show up on race days. We also have to show them the expectations that we have for this year, because we want to be competing for the ACC Championships in cross country.” And when talking about the freshman class, Watson isn’t bashful: “We have some of the most talented freshmen kids in the country, who in the next two to three years will develop into, hopefully, ACC champions, NCAA champions.” On the women’s side, the outlook is similar. The Tar Heels return Ashley Verplank and Mariana Lucena, two of their three AllRegion performers from last season, and they add an incoming class with high expectations.

“I am excited to now finally be an upperclassman and to direct the freshmen in the right direction and hopefully give them the guidance that they need and that I wanted as a freshman myself,” Verplank said. When it comes to the newest runners — three freshmen and three transfers — Watson expects big things. Kendra Schaaf, who finished second at the individual cross country national championships last year, headlines the class. She enters the season as the top returner in the country, after the graduation of national champion Angela Bizzarri. Watson said the goal for the men’s team is to finish in the top four regionally, which would almost ensure an NCAA bid, and even higher expectations for the women. “I will be very surprised if we aren’t top three in our region when it comes down to it, and we aren’t top two or three in the ACC,” he said. “With Ashley and Kendra leading the way, our 1-2 is just as good as pretty much anyone in the country.” Contact the Sports Editor at sports@unc.edu.

ababio puts ’09 injury behind him, ready for senior year
by maRk Thompson
assistant sports editor

Eddie Ababio wasn’t going to let an injury keep him from his natural position on the North Carolina men’s soccer team: leader. The senior defender has always led on the field, but last season Ababio was forced to take his guidance to the sidelines. Unable to perform, Ababio was no less a teammate off the pitch as he was on it. Early into his 2009 campaign, UNC’s outside back suffered a stressfractured sesamoid bone — a small pea-sized bone — in his left foot. “The bone had actually crumpled into pieces,” Ababio said. “Initially I wanted to play through this injury and help my team, but in the end the pain was too much to handle.” Ababio’s injury was so severe

that he needed surgery. He found a foot specialist to perform the procedure, but even the specialist gave Ababio a 40 to 60 percent chance that he’d play soccer again. The surgeon removed the bone, replacing it with a tendon. Ababio healed well during the six-month recovery time, but he was forced to walk the sideline during the remainder of the season. “It was obviously very hard for him to sit on the sideline last year,” coach Elmar Bolowich said. “He was almost like another coach on the sideline, instructing and cheering on his teammates while they were competing. He did his part to our success, talking to the players, helping to integrate players.” Ababio wasn’t only held from his passion for soccer; he missed out playing in the College Cup.

“Even though I was injured, I always felt like I was still part of the team, and I was very proud of the guys for making it to the final four,” he said. Now almost a year after his injury, Ababio is prepared to make his return to the field. He already got a taste of competition in a 1-0 exhibition win against UNC-Wilmington on Saturday. But the Ghana native’s foot will never be the same as it was before. Ababio can’t put too much pressure where his sesamoid bone once was. He has been experimenting with different cleats and has two options: try to find a cleat that doesn’t have a spike directly beneath the injury, or cut off the spike that is. While his footwear poses a problem, it does not deter his enthusiasm. Ababio has been preparing to

return for months, and he’s ready to lead a senior-laden defensive unit. “He’s a great teammate,” junior midfielder Kirk Urso said. “He’s always there for the guys. He works hard. He’s a great leader.” Ababio’s efforts towards his team never slowed. His support and leadership are so evident that the team voted Ababio a captain this season. In a game that’s played by 11 players, Ababio has managed to remain as much a part of that winning formula as possible. Now he’s just glad to be included among the 11. “Soccer is my passion, and I am happiest when I am playing,” Ababio said. “Since my injury I’ve been impatiently waiting for the day that I can return to doing what I love.”

new year starts, and some familiar questions are posed. How will a lack of funds affect jobs and academic quality at the University? How will downtown development affect life on Franklin Street? Who will our next leaders be? It is up to us all to be curious. As members of a University community, it is our responsibility to be asking questions and engaging in a conversation about the future. That’s what we do in class and at work, and that’s what we need to do so our world can continue to deliver and improve, for us and for those who come after us. At the heart of The Daily Tar Heel’s mission is to be a resource for those conversations and to aggressively seek to answer those questions. Don’t take my word for it — just take a look at these pages, and let me know if we are or aren’t. The best clue about whether we are serving our audience is your feedback. We want you to come to us when you need explanation for a change, when you need to weigh a decision, when you need to plan for the future. Our experiences are shared, and like they say in school, chances are someone else has the same question. There are more ways to get in touch with us and contribute your thoughts — and content — than ever. Jump in on the dialogue. Our community manager, Sara Gregory, will be sparking conversations on dailytarheel.com, as well as Facebook, Twitter, Formspring, and other social media. We want to be your voice and your forum. Send in your pictures and commentary to share your story in our pages or on our website. And if you think we messed up big time, we want to know right away why. We will strive to be as transparent as possible: to let you know as soon as we know if something needs to be corrected, to be clear about how we work and why we did what you don’t agree with, to respond quickly and openly to critique. As the editor-in-chief, I pledge to facilitate our ties with the community and be an active listener. I don’t need much of a push to be coerced into conversation — if you see me on campus, feel free to approach me and let me know what you think. Sometimes the greatest products can be inspired by those casual conversations about what you like, don’t like, or think we need. Nothing we do is worth anything unless you trust that we’re producing work that is accurate, relevant and thorough. To make sure we remain transparent and accountable, we’ve added a public editor — a person who will be able to bridge the gaps in understanding between the DTH and its readership. Evan Rose, the public editor, has both an understanding of the inner workings of the newsroom and an ear to the campus at large. He aims to balance our efforts, triumphs and mistakes against your demands and expectations, so we ultimately can learn how to communicate with one another better. He will meet regularly with community members, he will write columns to critique or explain our coverage, and he will keep a blog at dailytarheel.com. If an issue is particularly straining our relationship, he’ll host a community forum for constructive conversation. The Daily Tar Heel stands for its readers. Engage with us, question us and critique us so we can be your voice and resource. I look forward to working with you!

he opinion page of The Daily Tar Heel plays a distinct role in the life of the University. Every year feels like a fresh start. For some, it is the beginning of college and some of the best years of their life. But for the majority of students on campus, the fall is a chance to start an old routine anew. So it is with the DTH and the Opinion page. The DTH is starting its year off with an especially clean slate. Over the summer, the DTH (like many students) transitioned to a new home off campus. It is a truly exciting time. But while our location and many of our members have changed, our goals have not. This Opinion page is dedicated to striving for the same ideal that it always has. And it is committed to meeting the high standards of excellence that readers have come to expect from the DTH. Let’s start with the editorial board, which seems to be the least understood part of our operation. The board meets three times a week to discuss and decide editorial topics and angles. All topics and angles are decided collectively and rely on consensus. Editorials represent the stance of the full board, and so the board stands by its positions and its arguments. This is why editorials are unsigned. They are a collective opinion. It is why every members’ name is at the top of every opinion page, every day. We have an especially fresh editorial board this year to go with our new office. I look forward to sharing with the campus a fresh set of perspectives, and the timely, relevant and informative commentary that those perspectives provide. We have some great columnists this semester as well. They will be weighing in with their own independent commentary and diverse perspectives on a wide range of topics. Among them are race and ethnicity, sexual and personal health, experiences from abroad, how the sciences impact our lives, and the lives of two freshmen at UNC. Our goal is to have a rich and informative column every day. Not just some days. Not just most days. And of course, who could forget our cartoonists? We have a great staff of UNC students this semester, and we aim to have a studentproduced cartoon every day. Finally — and perhaps most importantly — the success of our page depends on you. Every day we run letters to the editor. In fact, we rely on them in order to produce a page every day. And we welcome them. your comments and critiques challenge both the opinion and news desks to provide better coverage. And, of course, there is Friday’s kvetching board. We love getting your kvetches. The more that you send, the better it will be every Friday. Students have a stake in what happens in our shared school, community and state. Simply put: The opinion desk aims to continue to give students the voice and the analysis for them to effectively exercise that stake.

uNC grads return to stage Varsity theatre to host film series
bY cOlIn warren-hIcks

European gallivanting. Sexual politics. A Belgian waffle fortune. Such are the major plot points in the drama “Letter from Algeria,” a production that allows current UNC students to build upon the experience of their graduated peers. The narrative is one of mystery. “You start to wonder who is telling the truth,” said cast member Sarah Berk, who graduated from UNC in May. “And who, maybe, is a sociopath.” In the play, three college students studying abroad in Brussels fall victim to the allure of a menacing older man, heir to a sizable family fortune earned through the sale of waffles. “The show is like a seesaw with four corners,” said cast member Bryan Burton, a junior. “Everyone is trying to keep stable.” The play, written by Michael I. Walker, will be showcased by Ground UP Productions at the Kenan Theatre. A major goal of Ground UP is to give advice to and help foster the

careers of UNC performers. “This year we have done what we truly wanted to do,” said Kate Middleton, Ground UP Productions’ producing artistic director and director of “Letter to Algeria.” “The students have done everything,” she said. Ground UP was formed in 2005 as a New York-based nonprofit theatre company. UNC alumni founded and continue to administer the company. After their caps were mothballed and gowns were hung, the five original members, graduates from the classes of 1999 through 2002, packed their suitcases for New York. But after several disconnected years in the Big Apple, they found they missed each other a little too much. “We craved the spirit and missed the camaraderie we had at UNC, which is sometimes hard to find in a place like New York,” Middleton said. “Letter From Algeria” is the culmination of Ground UP Productions’ fourth annual educational outreach residency program.

In March, undergraduates auditioned for a weeklong residency in New York, where they would participate in acting and professional training workshops, rehearse a new play and attend a marketing party with members of the New York dramatic community. “It put us in a professional mind set, being in a location surrounded by professional actors,” said stage manager and recent UNC graduate Andrew Slater. Slater, assistant director Catya McMullen and the rest of the cast worked with Ground UP between Aug. 1 and Aug. 8. “My brain was bubbling after every day, but it was wonderful,” said cast member Josh Wolonick, a junior. “It felt so productive and real.” Ground UP members relish their opportunities to help current students and return to their UNC roots. “Being on campus, we stock up on all its energy,” Middleton said. “That, and Mama Dip’s.” Contact the Arts Editor at artsdesk@unc.edu.

Though director Roman Polanski remains a somewhat infamous public figure, his provocative films continue to stand as sources of intellectual discussion. It was the promise of such discussion that inspired the department of English and comparative literature to feature the director as the subject of its upcoming UNC UniVarsity Film Series. This semester’s screenings will move off campus for the first time. Beginning in September, the Varsity Theatre on Franklin Street will feature films by the awardwinning Polish director. “The undergraduate and graduate students have, for years, organized a film series on campus,” said Shayne Legassie, director of undergraduate studies in comparative literature. The move will render the series more accessible to interested audiences outside the university community, Legassie said. The UniVarsity Film Series is free and open to the public through sponsorship from the Institute for the Arts and Humanities and the department of communication studies. The Comparative Literature Organization for Undergraduate Discussion donated its organizational resources to promote the

series. “We have a strong infrastructure in place thanks to CLOUD and the Department of Communications Studies,” Legassie said. Legassie added the department is doing its best to preserve what is at the heart of the event. Graduate and undergraduate students will continue to work together with specialized faculty members to foster interest in film and literature. To tie the films into established curriculum, UNC professors will discuss the themes with an audience. “Each film is tied into at least one course that is taught on campus,” Legassie said. Polanski was a logical choice for UniVarsity, Legassie said. Not only were students interested intellectually in the director, his recognizable name may draw audiences from outside the University community. Joe Woodruff, treasurer of

Law allows students to skip religious days
exam makeups pose problems

National and world news
Here’s how you can help provide relief in Pakistan: http://nyti.ms/dp7sqH Details on the destruction caused by the disaster and criticism of Pakistan’s “shaky government.” http://bit.ly/dln3LG (via LA Times) Talking Points Memo analyzes the public’s opinion on the Center: http://bit.ly/9C4jVP Pakistan President prepares to handle future natural calamities. http://bit.ly/cYojc5 (via APP) CHARSADDA, Pakistan (MCT) — In northwest Pakistan, some villagers are returning home after the massive flooding only to find destruction and an absence of government help. The northwest province of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa was the first hit by the deluge created by monsoon rains at the end of July. The region, which borders Afghanistan, is also on the front line of the battle against the Pakistani Taliban. Anger is growing at the lack of aid, a fury directed at the provincial government and the national administration, both run by secular, pro-Western political parties, raising fears that the crisis will build support for Islamist forces.

Kamran Rehman Khan, a senior official in the Charsadda administration, said the floods affected 74,000 families in the district, roughly 500,000 people, with 54,000 of those families now housed in schools or tents. “The whole catastrophe is overwhelming,” said Khan. “Whatever we do is not enough.” While further south in the country the floods continue to the eat up more land, in the northwest, the waters have receded, removing the danger of drowning but leaving behind the threat of disease and a population that’s homeless and hungry. In the province, 178,484 homes were destroyed or damaged.

Students who follow strict religious practices on certain days of the year can now focus on upholding their faith without worrying about their class attendance. The N.C. General Assembly recently passed a law asking K-12 public schools and UNC-system schools to implement a policy outlining the rules and guidelines for excused absences for religious purposes. At their August meeting, the UNC-system Board of Governors decided to allow individual campuses in the system to come up with their own guidelines for allowing such absences. Although it will allow students to celebrate religious festivals, administrators are still working out the details of the policy and are worried about how it might impact students’ exam schedules. At UNC-CH, students must notify instructors two weeks in advance of any religious observance they will observe, said Ron Strauss, executive associate provost. Administrators will not question written notifications or the students’ faith, but they do expect students to uphold the Honor Code, Strauss said. “We hope that students approach this with integrity and use it for its intention,” he said. “The only place it gets dicey is during exams.” According to the new policy, students are asked to notify instructors by the last day of classes if their religious observation runs into conflict with an exam. The months of May and December, which is the time for fall and spring semster finals, also happen to be the months during which many religious holidays fall. Teachers are to accommodate these excused absences with makeup work or tests, but many worry that this could pose problems for fair grading. Michael Salemi, a professor of economics at UNC, said he hasn’t allowed alternative tests for missed midterms in the past. “My policy has been and would continue to be that I do not know how to give a fair makeup exam,” Salemi said. He also said it’s hard to write equally difficult exams.

Markets volatile in australia now
SAN FRANCISCO (MCT) — Australian stock markets are expected to be unstable early Monday and a proposed tax on mining-company profits has been thrown into question, reflecting uncertainty after weekend elections in which voters failed to elect a majority in Parliament for the first time in 70 years. The Australian dollar could come under selling pressure.

Combat mode in Iraq is unlikely
WASHINGTON, D.C. (MCT) — The top American military commander in Iraq, seeking to reassure those concerned about the completed withdrawal of U.S. combat units, expressed confidence Sunday in Iraqi security forces. Army Gen. Ray T. Odierno said the 50,000 American troops will remain in Iraq in a mentoring role with the capability of resuming battle operations if necessary.

Iran unveiled an aerial bomber jet
BEIRUT (MCT) — Iran unveiled an unmanned bomber jet Sunday that will probably fail to tip the region’s strategic balance but suggests that Tehran continues to invest in shoring up its conventional weapons capabilities. President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad described the Karrar drone as “a messenger of honor and human generosity” but also a messenger of death.

“We hope that students approach this with integrity... The only place it gets dicey is during exams.”
Ron STRauSS, executive associate provost
“What we have here is where students will have to balance the requirements of their faith against their desire for the quality of their education,” Salemi said. If students request more than two days of excused absences, UNC’s policy gives the jurisdiction to the instructor, Strauss said. Salemi said he would continue his policy of increasing the weight of the final exam for those students who miss midterm tests due to excused absences. Sana Khan, president of the Muslim Students Association at UNC-CH, said the new law will help Muslim students celebrate the two main holidays of the year that fall on the same day as classes. “It’s a little bit of a balancing act between holidays and class,” Khan said. “It’s a step forward for people to begin thinking about the fact that it does affect students around the holidays.” N.C. State University’s policy also requires notification of the religious observance before it occurs. John Ambrose, the interim dean of undergraduate academic programs at NCSU, said he was worried that the new policy would interfere with students’ exam schedules. “If they are in a religion that has an observance, we would expect them to know when the observance is,” Ambrose said. NCSU has compiled a list of religious holidays in order to map out potential absences from students, he said. “I certainly hope it doesn’t force the instructors to come up with alternative exams,” Ambrose said. “We’re figuring this out as we go along.” Contact the State & National Editor at stntdesk@unc.edu.

new mural at the School of Government entitled “SERVICE” commemorates the 1960 Greensboro sit-in and is part of a larger series. It depicts various black leaders, including the Greensboro Four as chefs because of their power over the lunch counter. Colin Quashie, of Charleston, South Carolina, painted the mural.

Students will be getting their hands green with the help of a new internship offered this year. The program, known as De veloping Energ y L eaders Through Action, or DELTA, will provide more than 60 undergraduate and graduate internships in the emerging field of clean energy. It will include three full-time fellowships lasting one year for recent graduates and will allow students to participate in applied research and direct assistance work related to energy efficiency and renewable energy development. Kathleen Gray, the director of the Environmental Resource Program at UNC’s Institute for the Environment, said DELTA will provide several opportunities for students to work with nonprofit organizations, businesses and governmental agencies. “This program offers really exciting opportunities in the emerging green economy, such as learning about alternative fuels — not just on campus but also with off-campus entities — and learning about energy policy and energy applications in the real world,” she said. DELTA will be funded by a grant from the N.C. Energy Office totaling almost $325,000. The Renewable Energy Special Projects Committee also plans to support DELTA by allocating a portion of each student’s $4 renewable energy fee for additional funding. Because students will provide up to $60,000 to the program during a span of two years, Gray said some of the internships are required to be on campus. Gray added that she collaborated with students and faculty across campus to create a program worthy of receiving the grant. “Our interest in this program is helping develop the next generation of leaders in the emerging energy economy,” she said. “If we realize our potential, it will be amazing, and even if we come close it will mean great things for the state.”

nities to make more advances on the energy front.”
cindy shea, sustainaBility office

Cindy Shea, director of the UNC Sustainability Office, said gaining experience in the field of renewable energy and alternative fuels will make students more marketable in the emerging green industry. “Areas of the private sector want to hire students with more energy skills, and it’s something we hear students want more and more,” she said. “We want to provide more opportunities to make more advances on the energy front.” Eleven other university and community college programs are receiving the same grant as UNC, including Duke University, N.C. State University and Appalachian State University. Several local government branches and environmental agencies are also receiving grant funding. Students can apply for DELTA by sending a statement of purpose detailing why they’re interested in an energy internship and discussing their career plans as they relate to the energy field, a resume, an unofficial transcript and contact information for two references to energyleaders@unc. edu. Applications are due by Aug. 25 at 5 p.m. There will be between four and 10 undergraduate internships available this semester, and the program will continue through spring of 2012. Gray said the implementation of the DELTA program shows the University’s commitment to the local community and the state as a whole. “DELTA will give our students invaluable skills. They will be working on developing the cutting edge of technology,” she said. “We are poised. “We want to be a state leader.” Contact the University Editor at udesk@unc.edu.

Christina Miller, manager of Cold stone Creamery’s Durham store at 6917 fayetteville road, said people screamed for ice cream during unusually high temperatures. “Business picked up a lot more, probably 10 percent more than last summer,” she said. “it’s been crowded, and a lot of people are coming in that are new customers.” But the franklin street store, whose customer base is largely University students, saw fewer customers come in than in the previous year, said shift leader Kara wynne. “i don’t know that we’ve been affected by the heat,” wynne said. “we’re mostly affected by students being out of town.” But she said the heat has made it harder to keep the ice cream cold. “when we do outdoor events, the ice cream melts a lot quicker,” wynne said. “we have to take different measures to keep it cool, like packing it differently.”

this summer hasn’t been unusual in terms of how many heat-related health problems emergency services has had to treat, said Director of Orange County emergency services Col. frank Montes de Oca. “we haven’t seen an upsurge to speak of this year,” he said. “it seems like people are heeding our advice and staying hydrated and not mowing their lawns in the middle of the afternoon and things like that.” Montes de Oca said the heat most strongly affects the very young and very old, as well as people with medical problems. He said the department takes steps to ensure that emergency response workers beat the heat, such as holding outdoor training sessions indoors. “in years past folks have gotten overheated,” Montes de Oca said. “we tell them that by the time you feel dehydrated, it’s too late to hydrate yourself.”

Maple View farm has certainly felt the heat, said farm manager Mike stroud. the farm, located in Orange County, lost 30 percent of its corn crop to the unforgiving temperatures. stroud said milk and hay production were also down due to the hot, dry weather. “i think this is the hottest summer i can remember,” stroud said. “it’s been much worse than past summers. “we’ve lost some milk production because the heat’s rough on the cows.” the farm’s distribution company, Maple View farm Milk Company, supplies a milk mix to its local ice cream stores in Hillsborough and Carrboro. the stores use the product to create ice cream on site. stroud said the farm’s workers have been careful to take care of themselves to avoid being negatively affected by the heat.
