Bill spiegel, a Chatham County resident and new 140 West Franklin homeowner, stands in front of a showroom model of the development. spiegel said he values the downtown location of the complex.

On the hunt for a condominium, Bill Spiegel first heard about the 140 West Franklin development more than two years ago from an unlikely source: a salesman for Greenbridge, the new Rosemary Street development just blocks away. “He mentioned two other condominium projects,” said Spiegel, a 1971 UNC graduate and former asthma researcher. “The one that was the least far along was 140 West Franklin. Being downtown really appealed to me — and the fact that it wasn’t happening very soon.” And after delays in the permitting process, development and town officials celebrated the start of a project more than 10 years in the making at a Jan. 5 ground-breaking ceremony held at the complex’s location at the intersection of West Franklin and Church streets. Caterpillar machines and blue work tarp have replaced the vehicles and parking machines that once inhabited the town-owned Parking Lot 5, signaling the start of construction. The $75 million complex, which is being constructed by the Ram Development Company, combines public, commercial and living spaces with the goal of recharging the

downtown atmosphere. The structure will stand eight stories tall at its highest point and contain 140 units of upscale condominiums, 28,540 square feet of ground-level retail space and 337 private and public parking spaces. The complex is a half-mile from the Greenbridge mixed-use development, which finished construction in October, and is just 2 miles from East 54, a self-proclaimed “urban village” of luxury condominiums, shopping and dining. Mike Hammon, the chief development officer for Ram Realty Services, said 140 West’s location sets it apart from the other complexes. “Each development has a unique project,” he said. “I think what we’re trying to create is this sense of community.” Nearly 100 people gathered in a tent set up in the lot as Ram Realty Services Chairman Peter Cummings, Chapel Hill Mayor Mark Kleinschmidt and Town Manager Roger Stancil spoke on how the development would help recharge the downtown atmosphere by connecting East and West Franklin streets. “It was this space that really added to the argument

In 2003, before he was bestowed the responsibility of selecting spring graduation speakers, Chancellor Holden Thorp was charged with filling venues much smaller than Kenan Stadium. Then the director of the Morehead Planetarium and Science Center, Thorp looked to E.O. Wilson, a Harvard University professor whom he met in 2002, to deliver a speech at the George Watts Hill Alumni Center titled “Biodiversity and the Environment.” “We had all three rooms open and filled with chairs, and the place was packed,” Thorp said of the December speech. “There was a line around the block.” Seven years later, Thorp sought out Wilson yet again, this time for the May 8 commencement speech. A two-time Pulitzer Prize winner, Wilson began his career studying ants in the South Pacific and southern United States before going on to apply his findings to formulate theories that bridged the gap between the humanities and science. Wilson is widely known within the scientific community for fathering

Even the man with one of the toughest jobs in the state started his first few days of work with the simple things. At the start of the new year, now UNC-system President Thomas Ross said he unpacked, settled in to his new office and got acquainted with his staff. Ross even got a OneCard. UnC-system “A president is no different than anybody else,” president Thomas Ross he said. But unlike most othis in his first month serving. ers, Ross, former president of Davidson College who was chosen in August to lead the 17 institutions of the UNC system, has to deal with the constant reminder of losing millions more in funding from the N.C. General Assembly and the burden of protecting the academic quality of the system’s campuses. The state is currently projecting a $3.7 billion budget deficit in its $19 bil-

lion budget, which means the budget for the University system could be reduced by almost 19.5 percent, Ross and former President Erskine Bowles said Dec. 20 in a joint memo to UNC-system chancellors. Universities had previously been told to prepare for cuts between 5 and 10 percent. But according to the memo, the state has now asked all institutions to consider 15 percent reductions for next year and to start cutting the budget for the remaining fiscal year by a total of 3.5 percent. The new round of cuts issued for this year — or “hold back” — came as somewhat of a surprise, said Bruce Carney, executive vice chancellor and provost for UNC-Chapel Hill. He said the state is going to reduce its allocated funding to the system in the last quarter of the fiscal year. “We are scrambling to figure out how to make that work,” Carney said. Campuses are expected to submit proposals to reduce costs next week. The cuts will mean leaving vacant positions unfilled and more layoffs, Carney said. “There will be layoffs in all corners of the University this semester,” he said. And unfortunately, the bad news continued for the UNC system. Just days after Ross took over, N.C. Sen.

esidents of Appalachia: Your goats are safe. Biologists have confirmed that an animal shot in Kentucky in December was not a legendary chupacabra, but in fact a hairless raccoon. “It’s definitely a hideous creature. There’s just no way around it,” said wildlife biologist Steven Dobey. “Without that fur it gives it a whole new appearance as to what it is.” The scientists are now investigating the cause of the mammal’s hair loss, which could include shock, a genetic defect or a virus spread by ticks. According to legend, the chupacabra — meaning “goat sucker” in Spanish — attacks livestock and bleeds them dry.

Company seeks advice of UNC MBAs regarding China
Lord Corporation, a Cary-based company that deals with adhesives and other industrial materials, recently sought out students at the Kenan-Flagler Business School when it needed consultation on moving forward in markets in China. Kenan-Flagler was one of 14 schools tapped for the project as part of the Global Business Project, which works on real consulting for international companies free of charge. The company, which was founded 80 years ago making industrial sealants that allowed street cars to be more quiet, wanted to know about ways to expand the Chinese market for high-end industrial adhesives. In their work, the students identified major players in China of the field in which Lord Corporation is interested and identified ways that the company could enter the market there. The students worked with Tsinghua University in Beijing. A weekly virtual conference call at 9 p.m. eastern time kept the team in touch. The only other times the team met were at a kickoff event in Washington, D.C., and a two-week wrapping-up session in China.

UNC nears third tier for lecturers
Carney calls for master lecturer title

Through three years of debate and discussion, the University had explored seemingly every option. Distinguished lecturer. College lecturer. University lecturer. Each one was proposed. But after several conversations — the kinds that “would only happen at a university” — Executive Vice Chancellor and Provost Bruce Carney provided faculty with the brightest glimpse to date for the creation of a third promotional rank for fixed-term faculty, deciding on the title of “master lecturer” for lecturers and senior lecturers who have long sought for a rank that would more closely parallel the three-tiered career trajectory for tenure-track professors. “We have debated the names of things, the pluses and minuses, of

teaching assistant, teaching associate, teaching professor; about lecturer, senior lecturer, distinguished lecturer,” said a relieved Carney at the Dec. 17 Faculty Council meeting. “They have all had objections from greater or lesser numbers of faculty, and whether through acceptance or resignation, I think we have at least, finally, a path forward.” He said the title is intended primarily to recognize exceptional service by fixed-term faculty members. “Titles matter here,” he said, adding that the criteria and contractual benefits for the master lecturers have yet to be determined, leaving it uncertain whether the title will provide any significant gains for the job security of fixed-term faculty members. With an anticipated state budget shortfall of $3.7 billion, fixed-term faculty are viewed by some as vul-

nerable to budget cuts, though administrators have frequently relented from making instructional cuts. As a new position, the Provost Bruce rank of masCarney ter lecturer said that at will require UNC, “titles the approval of both the Board matter.” of Trustees and Board of Governors. Carney said he is aiming to have the rank in place by the July 1 start of the next fiscal year. If approved, the position of master lecturer would end a long wait for Jean DeSaix, a senior lecturer in the biology department who has served on a fixed-term basis since 1971. “I was the first senior lecturer when that title became available,” said DeSaix, chairwoman of the

fixed-term faculty committee. “At that point, that was considered a title change and not a promotion, which is an example of how hard it can be to make changes. “Now it’s a promotion.” A report submitted to Carney last January by the College of Arts and Sciences committee to develop policies and procedures for fixedterm faculty could provide a guide for determining the procedure for appointments and promotions within the fixed-term ranks. Led by Bill Andrews, senior associate dean for fine arts and humanities, the committee recommended that the title of “University lecturer” be implemented to mirror the practices of peer institutions and other segments of UNC. The recommendation calls for department chairmen to nominate lecturers for the higher rank, along with a statement from the nominee, several letters of recommendation and materials including course

evaluations and publications to be weighed in the decision. With regard to the three-track system, Thorp said academic affairs has lagged behind health affairs, which ranks fixed-term instructions as “clinical assistant professor,” “clinical associate professor” and “clinical professor.” At N.C. State University, fixed-term faculty work under the title of “teaching assistant professor” before rising to “teaching associate professor” and then “teaching professor.” “People who work in academics are usually doing it for less financial reward than they could get in the private sector,” said Chancellor Holden Thorp. “In exchange for that, they get two things: They get the opportunity to be around students and be in this innovative environment at the University. And the second thing is getting recognition for doing it.” Contact the University Editor at university@dailytarheel.com.

University study finds men receptive to HPV vaccine
A study conducted by researchers at UNC has found that men are more willing to receive a vaccine against human papilloma virus when dialogue surrounding it is framed around cancer prevention. When a group of 600 men aged 18-59 were asked if they would get the vaccine if it prevented genital warts, 42 percent responded yes. When the same group was asked if they would get the vaccine if it prevented both genital warts and anal cancer, affirmative responses shot up to 60 percent. The study, entitled “Does framing human papilloma virus vaccine as preventing cancer in men increase vaccine acceptability?”, was published in the August 2010 issue of the journal Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention. Annie-Laurie McRee, a UNC doctoral student and lead author of the study, hopes the study will lead health care providers to promote the cancer-preventing benefits of the vaccine, which was recently approved by the FDA.

tice, now we see that maybe that wasn’t such a good idea,” said Executive Vice Chancellor and Provost Bruce Carney at the meeting. He added that an additional day or two need to be added between finals and commencement to deal with inclement weather as well as personal issues that students might run into. The academic calendar committee has several options for remedying the situation. Those include beginning the school year earlier, shifting the exam schedule, extending the academic calendar and eliminating some reading days.

CiTy Briefs

When members of the academic calendar committee meet later this month, December’s snow will still be on their minds. The light snow that blanketed Chapel Hill on one of the last days of the finals period forced administrators to consider the cancellation of exams. Because exams were already scheduled for Friday — the last scheduled day of exams — and commencement for Sunday, some seniors would not have been able to graduate, said Chancellor Holden Thorp. Although Chapel Hill only saw an inch of snow, University officials are looking at ways to have

more flexibility in the future if snow or other inclement weather necessitates a delay or cancellation during the exam period. “There is not an algorithm for solving what would happen,” Thorp said, at the Dec. 17 faculty council meeting. He said it would take a considerable amount of snow to cancel exams in the future. “For final exams, unless there’s two feet of snow, we’re probably going to go,” he said. Commencement has been scheduled for the Sunday following the final Friday of exams for the past five years. In 2005, it was the Sunday following a final exam day on a Saturday. “This has been standard prac-

As snowfall across North Carolina continues to pile up, state and local departments are taking a hit financially. Both the N.C.

committee’s top-ranked choice, who was another world-renowned scientist, said Ron Strauss, executive associate provost and the chairman of the speaker selection committee. Strauss could not reveal the name of the committee’s top choice, saying that the task of bringing that speaker to UNC for the 2012 commencement ceremony will be the “first topic of conversation” for the next speaker selection committee. “The person who was top-ranked just wasn’t available,” he said. “It wasn’t a matter of second choice. I don’t want to give the seniors the impression that we have a secondchoice candidate. That’s just not the case.” Committee members unanimously supported Wilson but were initially concerned with his lack of name recognition outside the scientific community, Strauss said. Internationally known speakers, including the prominent religious and political figure Desmond Tutu and best-selling novelist John Grisham, spoke at the spring commencement ceremonies in 2009 and 2010, respectively. a competition in 2004 to design the private-public venture, a task he said was no easy feat. “It’s definitely a longer process because you’ve got so many people’s opinions to take into consideration,” he said. Construction documents were completed in 2009, Felton said. A year later, developers received zoning permits from the town that allowed them to move forward with the project. Shari Meltzer, Ram’s director of marketing, said 68 of the 140 condominium units have been sold. She said company officials expect a positive sales reaction to the ground-breaking. “People want to see it, touch it, know that it’s real,” Meltzer said. Spiegel, a Chatham County resident, said he can understand the concerns of a skeptical public “That was a caveat that was stated — that sometimes name recognition is a nice thing,” he said. But those concerns were largely allayed, Strauss said, after committee members researched Wilson and watched his speeches online. “E.O. Wilson made this movie called ‘Lord of the Ants,’” said senior class president Liz Deane, who is one of five student representatives on the 10-person speaker committee. “I don’t think his speech will be on ants, but his work is more interesting than I thought it would be.” Deane and Strauss said one of the weaknesses of the University’s selection process is its late start. Deane said she and other committee members will stay on through the end of the semester to avoid the same issues they faced in the fall. “In the future, we need to start earlier looking for a speaker,” she said. “It’s hard to get them to commit when you only ask them in September or October.” Contact the University Editor at university@dailytarheel.com. because he had his own doubts when he first considered buying a unit. “Right after they started taking contracts, the economy really went down,” he said. “When they asked me for my 5 percent down, I said no.” Spiegel purchased a unit in 2009, after Ram re-bid contractors and lowered their housing prices by 30 percent. Prices now range from one-bedroom units in the $200,000s to terrace homes that start at $600,000. Speigel said he’s excited about his investment, though he doesn’t know what he’ll use the apartment for when construction finishes in late 2012. “I’ll be happy to live here or whatever makes sense two years from now,” he said.

Even if Basnight had stayed on for another term in the N.C. Senate, the new Republican majority and the mounting state deficit would have reduced his influence in the legislature, UNC-system Board of Governors Chairwoman Hannah Gage wrote in an e-mail. “It’s impossible to overstate his contribution to the University and equally difficult to predict the consequences of his absence, but it’s also important to recognize that he led in a very different time,” she said. Gage said the system is already preparing for larger classes and heavier teaching loads. Although the state is asking Universities to prepare for cuts of up to 15 percent, Carney said anything more than 5 percent could severely hurt the University and its research abilities. The UNC-system Board of Governors will be discussing next year’s budget and implications of a 15 percent cut at its meeting on

said Thorp, who will preside over the 9:30 a.m. ceremony. “He’s the most articulate environmentalist of our time, so he’s a great choice … I’m sure that many of the students who will be graduating will be going to green jobs, and so what better way to send them off than to have Ed Wilson as the speaker?” With Wilson — whose name appeared only on a list of considered speaker candidates — Thorp strayed from the list of recommendations presented to him by the commencement speaker selection committee, a group of students and administrators that Thorp consults for the selection. Following the tradition for such ceremonies, Wilson will not receive compensation for the speech. “It’s an honor to give the talk, and speakers normally receive an honorary degree,” Thorp said. “And we expect people who come to do it to feel that that’s more than compensation enough.” Wilson, a Pulitzer Prize winner and famed biologist, mirrored the

Marc Basnight, D-Beaufort, who has been the UNC system’s key supporter in the state legislature, announced his retirement. Basnight had planned on retiring in 2012, but decided to resign from his position this year because of health problems. “I don’t know if there’s ever been a legislative leader in North Carolina more supportive of the University than Sen. Basnight,” Ross said. “He has been a champion for the University.” Basnight’s resignation comes after former Sen. Tony Rand, another ally for the system, resigned in 2009. But Ross remained positive despite the loss. “I don’t know that his loss alone is going to mean that all of a sudden money for the University disappears,” he said.

Jan. 13. And Ross said he is looking to students for suggestions on making campuses more efficient. Educating legislators about the importance of preserving the University system’s academic core will be the board’s main goal in the coming months, Gage and Ross said. “The leadership is new but these are smart people and they understand the critical role the University plays in the state’s economic future,” Gage said. Although the system faces a tough year ahead, Gage said she is confident the leaders at all levels will be able to steer their campuses through. “There’s no magic bullet, no hidden pot of gold, no way to delay the inevitable anymore, so we dig in and we do what we’ve got to do,” she said.

that downtown just missed the mark,” Kleinschmidt said in his remarks to the crowd. “We’ve done a lot of heavy lifting to get here.” Stancil said the ground-breaking was a testament to the work put in by both town and development officials, especially since much of the planning occurred in a sluggish economy. “There aren’t many places these days that are having this kind of ground-breaking in their downtown,” Stancil said.

During the Christmas snowstorm, NCDOT was responsible for clearing all state-maintained roads. The department has five primary roads in Chapel Hill, including Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, Franklin Street and Manning Drive. The public works department was responsible for maintaining about 150 streets and provided assistance on 15 state-maintained streets that were critical to the bus system, Terrell said.

Bobbi Owen, senior associate dean for undergraduate education, attended the meeting and said scrapping a reading day would be met with resistance. “I don’t think that option would be popular with anyone, to tell you the truth,” she said.

Carney said changing the academic calendar could also give professors more time to grade exams. Currently, they must turn them in within 72 hours of the day of the exam. Carney said the scheduling issue is not particularly pressing but also not one to be ignored. “I don’t think this is a crisis situation,” he said. “It’s just something that we need to pay attention to.” Contact the University Editor at university@dailytarheel.com.

Richard Terrell. Although the department has reached the budget, it had a full stockpile of salt and sand last week, Terrell said. NCDOT has used about 84 percent of its $25 million budget for snow and ice removal this fiscal year. Steve Abbott, a spokesman for the department, said at least $7.1 million of the department’s funds were used to clear roads during the Christmas snowstorm. Abbott said if the department goes over its budget, there is a $10 million emergency backup fund that can be used. “Ideally you don’t go over budget, but you can’t control it,” he said. “We are going to take care of it and adjust things. “We just may have to move

“We were fortunate not to have weather that interfered with our exam days,” said Christopher Derickson, the University registrar. “We would like to have ... more of a cushion between the final exam and commencement,” he added. The construction of the academic calendar is a complicated process, and some of the options are easier said than done. The calendar, which details plans for the semester to the day, must be set at least 18 months before it goes into effect. It must also take into consider-

A dispute between UNC Hospitals and the private WakeMed Health and Hospitals is no closer to a resolution after a late December meeting. WakeMed requested financial information regarding UNC Hospitals’ charity care expenses and its private subsidiary Rex Hospitals in November, but UNC has still not responded. William Atkinson, president and CEO for WakeMed, said the meeting was “generic, pleasant and nice” but that UNC did not provide any answers or any new information. “We agreed to agree to meet later,” Atkinson said. UNC declined to comment on the specifics of the meeting. Atkinson said the only formal response from UNC has been the acknowledgement of receiving the request on the first day. “It’s about freedom of information but we have not heard a peep out of them,” Atkinson said. “Their response has been silence.” UNC medical center spokeswoman Jennifer James said they are still reviewing the records request from WakeMed. “It was very large in scope and it will take some time to look at the things they have requested,” she said. Although part of WakeMed’s complaint against UNC is its partnership with clinics statewide, WakeMed announced in December

new partnerships with three physicians’ practices and 13 physicians. Two of these practices are cardiology clinics. In December, Atkinson referred to UNC Hospitals’ partnership with Wake Heart and Vascular Associates as “predatory” and pointed out that “chasing hearts is exceedingly profitable.” But Atkinson said the complaint against UNC is not against the nationwide trend of health services consolidation. “It’s that the state funds it and not natural transactions,” he said. Atkinson said this funding is designed to tip health care services in favor of the government systems. “We continue to grow because the market continues to grow,” Atkinson said. WakeMed’s partnership with one of the clinics — Holly Springs Medical Center — also expands its primary care network, he said. “Financial arrangements vary and are designed to fit the needs of the physicians as well as those of the health system,” said WakeMed spokeswoman Debra Laughery. WakeMed will also be the first consulting client of N.C. Republican Party Chairman Tom Fetzer, who is stepping down from his role with the party this month, he said. Fetzer is a former WakeMed board member. Contact the State & National Editor at state@dailytarheel.com.

Lot purchased for $1.65m art collectors help ackland grow
new owner to work with town
by Olivia barrOw
assistant city editor

The purchase of a vacant lot on Elliott Road has sparked renewed interest in a site that has sat empty for almost a decade. Ginn & Company, the owner of the Village Plaza shopping center, bought the lot next to Whole Foods, where a theater used to stand, on Dec. 14 for $1.65 million. Owner Steve Ginn has no specific plans for the lot but hopes to work with the town to decide how to proceed. “I’m looking forward to taking the town’s input and putting the best thing that can go there economically and fit in with Chapel Hill,” he said. The property is part of the larger Ephesus Church Road and Fordham Boulevard area that the town is studying in an effort to encourage development. Transportation, traffic and access to the shopping centers are all being considered. C h a p e l H i l l ’s E c o n o m i c Development Officer Dwight Bassett said he had discussed a mix of uses for the space with Ginn, including residential.

Ginn said he is not in a hurry to develop the site, and is willing to wait for the town’s input. Bassett said interest in the site had also renewed attention to a plan proposed about a decade ago to make a wetlands with elevated walkways and possibly an amphitheater in the floodplain space between Village Plaza and Eastgate shopping centers. “We need to find some way to make that a positive addition, and find a way to connect the shopping centers,” Bassett said. EFC Village Plaza Development asked $1.75 million for the property, said John Morris, the agent who represented the deal. Several other companies looked at the site, including a mixed-use developer from Charlotte and a restaurant. The other companies made offers on the lot, Morris said, but their plans were going to require about a year-and-a-half long approval process. “The seller didn’t want to wait that long,” Morris said. Ginn said he bought the property to protect his existing tenants next door. “The other people that wanted to develop it, I didn’t feel would be very appropriate for what the town would like,” he said.

ning for the town, said the lot has potential as an opportunity for infield development. “The ultimate goal is to encourage reinvestment in the properties,” she said. Ginn said he is cautious about overbuilding the lot, and he has been contacted by several people interested in his plans for developing it. “There’s a lot of activity—people want to see something there,” he said. “We’ll just take our time. We’re going to fix it up, make it look good and then start talking.” Contact the City Editor at city@dailytarheel.com.

Fo r E u n i c e a n d He r b e r t Shatzman, donating art is more than just a tax write-off. The Shatzmans, both 83, have called Chapel Hill home since 1989. They have been donating art to the University’s Ackland Art Museum for nearly as long. “Flowers from Earth and Sand,” the Ackland exhibit that closed this December, featured a large number of ceramic pieces from the Shatzmans’ collection. But the couple’s passion began long before arriving in Chapel Hill. While living in Los Angeles decades ago, the couple became intrigued by collections of ceramic art. “We were in San Francisco and were going through one of the stores that specialized in fine art,” said Eunice Shatzman. “It happened to be Chinese ceramics, and we just started with an interest in that.” They also struck up a friendship with Sherman Lee, curator for the Cleveland Museum of Art in Ohio, before his death in 2008. It was Lee who introduced the Shatzmans to the Ackland in 1996. “He would visit, look at the pieces, talk about them, and educate us as to what sort of things were valu-

able,” Eunice Shatzman said. The Shatzmans moved to New York to explore new museums and art dealers on the east coast. There, they shifted from strictly Chinese ceramics to include things from the art nouveau period. When they came to Chapel Hill in the late 1980s, the Shatzmans had to adjust to the small town. “We missed having the opportunity for dealers in New York City,” Eunice Shatzman said. But this hardly detained them from expanding their collection. Instead, they set out to find ceramic art native to North Carolina, traveling and meeting different artists throughout the region. The Shatzmans’ ceramic collection has grown large over the years, filled with ceramics dating back to 5000 BC. As their collection continued to expand, they donated many of their treasures to university museums, including UNC’s Ackland. Ackland Director Emily Kass said that the show was prompted by the overlap between pieces owned by the Shatzmans and pieces already in the Ackland’s collection. “(Ackland’s curator) Tim Riggs had visited the Shatzmans on numerous occasions over several

years to see their growing collection of art nouveau ceramics, and had been thinking about how an exhibition might be configured,” Kass said. The Shatzmans had an active role in helping the museum design the exhibition. “Our participation centered upon matching glass from the art nouveau era with our ceramics,” Herbert Shatzman said. “They borrowed about fifty pieces from our collection and matched it with print and other things.” The Shatzmans have also donated some of their pieces to other exhibits at the Ackland, including 1998’s Asian collection, Kass said. “‘Flowers from Earth and Sand’ has inspired visitors to tell us that they think the show is ‘really gorgeous,’ ‘exquisite,’ ‘inspiring,’ and ‘extraordinary,’” said Emily Bowles, director of communications at the Ackland. “The comment book in the museum lobby has been full of superlatives.” And for the Shatzmans, that’s what their art is all about. “The important thing is, we wanted to share what was meaningful and beautiful for us so that others… would have the chance to appreciate it and develop tastes of their own,” Eunice Shatzman said.

Former cadet awaits change
dadT repeal not yet in effect
by elise young
StaFF writer

What freshmen know now
the daily tar heel Multimedia team asked UNC freshmen,"What did you not know first semester that you are glad you know now?"

Supporters of the Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell Repeal Act of 2010 celebrated its passage on Dec. 18, but they won’t see implementation of the bill for at least another two months. The bill will not go into effect until 60 days after President Barack Obama, Secretary of Defense Robert Gates and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Adm. Mike Mullen certify the military is ready and able to repeal the policy, which prevents those who are openly gay from serving in the military. “ R i g h t n o w, n o t h i n g h a s changed,” said Sara Isaacson, who was asked to leave UNC’s Army ROTC program last year after coming out as a lesbian her senior year. Isaacson was also asked to repay the scholarship of $79,265.14 she received from the U.S. Army. She plans to graduate from UNC but is currently taking classes at Durham Technical Community College. “My hope is that once that certification does happen, I will be allowed back into ROTC and be able to serve my country as an officer in the United States Army,” she said. Both N.C. senators — Democrat Kay Hagan and Republican Richard Burr — voted in favor of the repeal. Lee Storrow and Anthony Dent, leaders in UNC’s Young Democrats and College Republicans, respectively, said the majority of their

clubs’ members supported the repeal. But Dent, a Republican, expressed a criticism of the bill also shared by Burr — its timing was inappropriate. “Making such a shift in policy at a time when we have troops deployed in active combat areas does not take into consideration the seriousness of the situation on the ground,” Burr said in a press release. “Despite my concerns over timing, my conclusion is that repealing Don’t Ask Don’t Tell is the right thing to do,” he said. A report reviewing possible implications of repealing Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, issued Nov. 30 by the Department of Defense, concluded that ROTC and other military recruiting programs would experience little impact from a repeal of the policy. The report emphasized the importance of education and training for military recruiters so they could accurately explain the Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell repeal to potential recruits. “Successful implementation will depend upon strong leadership, a clear message and proactive education throughout the force,” Gates said in a press release. Isaacson said she thinks the repeal will allow cadets and midshipmen to

participate in the program fearlessly and more comfortably. “For the most part it will be a non-issue and really a nonevent,” she said. After the U.S. Senate voted 65-31 in favor of the repeal act, Gates said he would begin planning how to effectively implement the act as soon as the President signed it into law. “While today’s historic vote means that this policy will change, the implementation and certification process will take an additional period of time,” Gates said.

— President Barack Obama said Saturday that the Republicanled House of Representatives’ planned vote this week to repeal the landmark health care law was a distraction from the need to create jobs and spur growth. “What we can’t do is refight the battles of the past two years that distract us from the hard work of moving our economy forward,” Obama said in his weekly address. “What we can’t do is engage in the kinds of symbolic battles that so often consume Washington while the rest of America waits for The final House vote on repeal of the health care law is set for Wednesday. The vote is seen as largely symbolic since it has very limited chances of becoming law. The measure is unlikely ever to be considered by the Democraticcontrolled Senate.

Congresswoman Giffords shot in Tucson
WASHINGTON, D.C. (MCT) — A gunman fired into a town hall meeting in a supermarket parking lot in Tucson, Ariz., Saturday, killing six people, including a federal judge, and critically wounding Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, an Arizona Democrat who hosted the event. At least 18 others were injured in the shooting, including members of Giffords’ staff. Giffords, 40, was shot through the head at close range and airlifted to a local hospital, where she underwent emergency surgery. She’s listed in critical condition, but doctors are cautiously optimistic about her chances for survival. U.S. district Judge John Roll, Arizona’s chief federal judge, was among five who died at the scene. A 9-year-old girl later died of her wounds at a hospital. The suspected gunman, Jared Lee Loughner, 22, of Tucson, is in custody after several witnesses tackled him to the ground. There was no security at the town hall event. Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik wouldn’t confirm that Loughner was the suspect, but he said the shooter intended to target Giffords. “He ran into the crowd and when he got to (Giffords), he started shooting,” Dupnik said. In a statement Saturday, President Barack Obama said the shooting is “a tragedy for Arizona and a tragedy for our entire country.” The president dispatched FBI Director Robert Mueller to Arizona to personally coordinate the investigation by multiple law enforcement agencies. “We are going to get to the bottom of this and we are going to get through this,” Obama said Saturday afternoon. “I know Gabby is as tough as they come and I’m hopeful that she’s going to pull through.” Giffords’ husband, Mark Kelly, a NASA Shuttle astronaut, arrived in Tucson Saturday evening aboard a NASA jet to join his wife. Dr. Peter Rhee of the University of Arizona Medical Center said Giffords was conscious and following commands. Giffords had experienced previous brushes with violence in recent months. In one incident, Dupnik said, an audience member dropped a weapon at one political event Giffords hosted. In another incident, windows were broken at her campaign headquarters. Authorities were also investigating a suspicious package found Saturday at Giffords’ Tucson office. The incident is already being cast as an outgrowth of the intemperate and polarized political climate that swept the country following the Great Recession and the 2008 presidential election. Heated confrontations at town hall meetings during the healthcare debate, protesters carrying guns to political rallies and members of Congress being spat upon outside the Capitol in Washington are just some of the acts that have characterized the political landscape recently. While the motive for the shooting is unclear, Dupnik suggested the heated political rhetoric in the media may have played a role, and said the atmosphere in Arizona has become especially toxic.

Student-run labels record professionals
Explore outside unC’s music scene
by Carson blaCkwelder
stAff Writer

When two blues legends took the stage in Wilson Library last November, students Reed Turchi and Andrew Hamlet jumped at the chance to record them. Turchi and Hamlet, both presidents of local student record companies, recorded Alfred “Uganda” Roberts and John “Jojo” Hermann when they performed at Wilson Library on Nov. 16. “This is the first time (Vinyl Records has) gotten to record professional musicians in our studio,” said Hamlet, president of Vinyl Records. Vinyl Records traditionally records the music of student artists at the University. But Hamlet saw something different with Roberts and Hermann. “This is the first opportunity for us to have an artistic product that people outside of the community might desire,” Hamlet, a senior, said. Vinyl Records and Turchi’s Devil Down Records are releasing a limited 7-inch record with two songs. Each copy will be hand-signed and numbered. Profits will go to the New Orleans Musicians’ Clinic and Vinyl Records, Turchi said. Turchi is the president of Devil Down Records, a label he started as a project in an arts entrepreneurship class. But he said the label was always something he considered to be real beyond the classroom. “Its goal is to put out music from musicians in northern Mississippi who have been passed over for one reason or another, mainly because they don’t have a big enough audience for the records to be profitable on a large scale,” Turchi said. Turchi, a junior from Asheville, said he focuses on northern Mississippi music because “it sounds so good, you’ve got to boogie.” “The first time Roberts and Hermann met was last year when we brought them together,” said William Ferris, an American his-

tory professor at UNC. “It was an electrifying moment. They played together as if they had already been rehearsing or even as if they had always played together forever.” Roberts grew up in New Orleans and has been playing music professionally since he was about 17. New York City native Hermann learned to play New Orleans-style music a different way. “I learned to play off those records when I was young, records that Alfred played on,” Hermann said at the concert in November. “So to play with Alfred is like playing with those records when I was young.” This is the first record for Vinyl Records featuring artists beyond the student population. “We are the sound of the campus, and you can’t really define it into one genre,” Hamlet said. “We have this kind of eclectic sound.” Turchi produced a collection of blues guitarist Fred McDowell’s music that Ferris had recorded in

“It’s an exciting moment and I hope that we will be able to continue to do things like this.”

Ve n t u r i n g b e y o n d t h e University’s music scene is new territory for Hamlet and Vinyl Records — but it’s a direction Hamlet said he is eager to take. “It’s an exciting moment and I hope that we will be able to continue to do things like this,” Hamlet said. “I mean we will still be a student-run label, but it will be, like, professional.” Contact the Arts Editor at arts@dailytarheel.com.

unC to develop master’s Santoro promoted in aSG degree for foreign lawyers Will continue as congress speaker
by Melvin backMan
AssistAnt University editor

UNC School of Law is reaching out abroad to give law students at home a more worldly experience. The school plans to introduce a one-year master of law degree — or LL.M — for foreign lawyers seeking training in American law. Beverly Sizemore, the School of Law’s director of international programs, said the program seeks practicing lawyers from outside the U.S. who have already earned junior doctorate law degrees in their home countries and are already practicing. “It’ll add to the law school experience for our JD students and faculty with some different perspectives on law and legal issues,” she said. UNC’s is far from the first LL.M program to be offered in the nation. Rob Mosteller, associate dean

for academic affairs, said there are more than 100 LL.Ms across the nation. Both Duke University and Wake Forest University have LL.M programs in place. Mosteller said he has been paying attention to Duke’s program for the past 15 years. Sizemore said potential students from locales as varied as Qatar, China, Pakistan and South Kora have expressed interest in joining the program. Participants would need to get J-1 or F-1 visas in order to join the program in the U.S. Sizemore said students would have to show proof of $54,860 to cover the cost of tuition and living expenses in order to gain entry to the country. The program’s director, Michael Corrado, said UNC’s program would be bringing in exclusively foreign students. Many LL.M programs accept both foreign and domestic students.

He won’t be back to work with the program until May. Before then, he will be in Italy researching European law. He said he believed he was tapped to head the program because of his experience in international law and his work creating UNC’s LL.M program. Mosteller said the program will start slow, with three to seven students. He said the School of Law’s goal is to approach 25 students in the next five years. “We want to fill it gradually and with quality,” he said. Participants in the LL.M program will study for two semesters. The program faces acquiescence — a type of approval — from the American Bar Association before it can be implemented, but administrators were confident the program would be given the green light. Corrado hopes the program promotes the University’s brand abroad and gives its foreign students a new perspective on law. “It is difficult to exaggerate the gap that exists between the way the law is taught and practiced in civil law countries … and the way it is taught and practiced here, and that gap is something that we will have to close for the students in our LL.M program,” he said via e-mail.

Deanna Santoro, the speaker of Student Congress, was promoted to the role of associate vice president of the Association of Student Governments’ legislative and public affairs committee in late December. The new position places Santoro in the executive branch of ASG, giving her more legitimacy with the General Assembly but taking away the vote she had as a delegate. “We communicate directly with the general administration,” Santoro said. Santoro, who formerly served as a chairwoman of the committee, applied for the open position in early December. She said the new position will offer her a leading role in legislative priorities within the ASG. Santoro said she received recommendations from both Student Body President Hogan Medlin and Jonathan Curtis, associate director for student activities and student organizations. “I consulted with Hogan and we made sure before I even applied that it would be something good for our university,” she said. Santoro said that filling this leadership position allows students to be fully represented and allows for another UNC student to fill her Contact the University Editor former role as a delegate. “It’s really not a promotion. It’s at university@dailytarheel.com.

just a transfer from one branch to another,” said Dakota Williams, the senior vice president of ASG who also serves as student body treasurer within the executive branch of UNC. “She’s working for the ASG as opposed to representing UNC.” Santoro said she will continue as speaker of congress and will focus in the coming semester on fulfilling her goal of systematically improving the Student Code, especially titles IV, V and VII. Zach De La Rosa, chairman of the rules and judiciary committee of congress, said the promotion will not interfere with Santoro’s duties as speaker. “In my opinion there’s no conflict of interest,” he said. “I don’t think she thinks there’s a conflict of interest. I don’t think there will be a problem.” De La Rosa added that Santoro

will bring a record of financial oversight to her new role in ASG, an organization that is entirely funded by a $1 fee for all UNCsystem students. “This works in UNC’s advantage,” he said. “One of the problems that emerged this year or last year was lowering salaries. She and Rick (Ingram) voted to lower them. I expect them to continue looking after our money.” Student Congress member Lee Storrow said the relationship between UNC and ASG has grown slightly tenuous in the past two years, with the UNC delegates going so far as to consider withdrawing its participation. He added that she will bring passion and professionalism to her new role. Contact the University Editor at university@dailytarheel.com.

unC satisfied with system insurance plan
by Jen Serdetchnaia
AssistAnt stAte & nAtionAl editor

Although the implementation of the UNC system’s student health insurance was not without its glitches first semester, students and administrators say they were satisfied overall with the enrollment and the quality of coverage. “UNC is pleased that an affordable health insurance plan is available and that 59,653 students were able to utilize it in the fall while 135,784 students had access to other creditable coverage and waived out,” said Bruce Mallette, senior associate vice president for academic and student affairs for the UNC system, in an e-mail. But some students complain the waiving out process is inefficient. For example, waiving out must be confirmed with an e-mail from the insurance providers Pearce & Pearce to be valid and a student might be required to waive out both semesters if he or she did not request to waive out for the full year initially.

Administrators also said enrollment could rise this semester. Pearce & Pearce is in the process of re-verifying the insurance information of students who successfully waived out for the fall semester, Mallette said. “History shows that five to 10 percent of students who receive an approved waiver in the fall have become ineligible under their other creditable coverage by time spring semester arrives,” he said. As of Jan. 1, across the UNC system, 125,030 waivers had been approved for the spring semester, with only 220 of those pending or needing additional information, he said. Students have until Jan. 31 to waive out of the insurance for the spring semester or to enroll if they had previously waived out. If a student does not receive confirmation from Pearce & Pearce of waiving out, then their request was not processed, said Mary Covington, executive director for Campus Health Services. “We have no way to track this,”

Covington said of glitches in the system. The system is largely dependent on the students’ attention to and action upon e-mail updates. It is possible students with credible coverage were denied waiving out if they entered some incorrect information, like an incorrect policy number, Mallette said. Although those students were sent an e-mail to correct their information, if they did not follow up, their waiving out was denied and they were required to pay for the systemwide insurance, he said. All students with a declined waiver were sent five follow-up e-mails during the open enrollment process in the fall, Mallette said. The Student Health Center directors, UNC General Administration and the UNC-system Association of Student Governments are currently reviewing potential revisions, Mallette said. Contact the State & National Editor at state@dailytarheel.com.

Breland hopes aCC play will promote fund
missed 2009-10 season due to cancer “I wanted to do what I could do to help
by lauren ratcliffe
Staff writer

Two words nearly took away senior Jessica Breland’s childhood dream of playing basketball. “I was stunned ... I didn’t even know what Hodgkin’s lymphoma was, but then the word came: cancer,” Breland said. A year after cancer sidelined her from competition, she’s looking to the start of ACC competition as a chance for the hospital fund in her name to become widely known. Hodgkin’s lymphoma — also known as Hodgkin’s disease — is a cancer of the immune system. Symptoms include swollen lymph nodes, coughing, trouble breathing and night sweats — all of which Breland had. She knew she was sick, but didn’t think it was anything serious. Just after classes ended in May 2009, Breland was preparing to try out for the USA basketball team for the summer when she made a visit

to the office of Sylvia Hatchell, the head women’s basketball coach. “It was a few days before she was supposed to leave to go, and she came in and said, ‘Coach, I can’t breathe,’” Hatchell said. Doctors said she was fine, but Breland’s complaints persisted. She’d been sick off-and-on for most of the season, so much so that Hatchell said she “ripped her about being more committed, dedicated and getting in shape.” Hatchell was out of town when the team found out, but was on speaker for the phone call. “I can remember the players being devastated, some tears being shed because there was a lot of anticipation and not knowing what was going to happen,” Hatchell said. “It’s like a cloud over your head,” Breland said of her sickness. “And as much as you want the sun to come out, it’s always cloudy.” Her treatments sidelined her from the 2009-2010 women’s bas-

them because they are the next generation, and they have dreams. ”
jessica breland, Senior, unc women’S baSketball player

ketball season, but now, after several rounds of chemotherapy, Breland has regained her strength and is back on the court as a leader on the team. The support Breland received from her teammates and the children she met while undergoing treatment inspired her to give back. So when Hatchell approached Breland with the idea of starting a fund to give to the hospital, the 6-foot-three-inch forward took to it immediately. “I wanted to do what I could do to help them because they are the next generation, and they have dreams. I know I had a dream and it was almost taken away from me,” Breland said. The Jessica Breland Comeback Kids Fund got its name from the nickname Breland received when she returned to the court.

“The NCAA has labeled her as the comeback kid. Jessica says ‘Hey, all those kids over there are comeback kids,’” Hatchell said. Hatchell encourages students to come to the games when they promote the fund, but Breland encourages students to give of themselves even outside the fund. “Even if it’s not giving money, just saying hello to the person next to you might lift up their day,” Breland said. Teammate Italee Lucas said she’s seen kids change their outlook after meeting Breland. “Yes they have cancer and it’s scary,” she said. “But then they look at Jessica and they see hope.” Contact the University Editor at university@dailytarheel.com.

Greeks start publishing weekly paper
‘The odyssey’ meant for all students
by nicole comparato
staff writer

Council to focus on library, shelter
by Jamie emmerman
staff writer

PassinG The Gavel

Before winter break commenced, the Greek community began writing its Odyssey. The Odyssey, a free weekly publication from UNC’s fraternities and sororities, will seek to merge non-Greek students and Greek students’ perspectives, said Brent Blonkvist, publisher of the newspaper and a member of the UNC chapter of the Phi Delta Theta fraternity. The first issue of The Odyssey, with a run of 1,275 copies, was distributed Dec. 9 to every sorority and fraternity house, as well as other locations on campus. Issues will be distributed to Greek houses and various campus locations including the Student Union, the Student Recreation Center, the Undergraduate Library and the fraternity court newsstand, he said. Funded entirely through advertising sales, the local edition of the paper is part of a national Greek publication founded at Indiana University, Blonkvist said. Since its founding in fall 2009, 31 other universities have published their own editions. Blonkvist said Olympia Media Group, the publishing house of The Odyssey, is trying to create a single network or website where members of Greek organizations across the country can converse. Blonkvist added that he hopes the paper will eventually have one writer on staff from each of the 54 UNC fraternities and sororities. The paper is produced entirely by Greek students. He added that sections for sports, entertainment and fashion would appeal to the nonG

Greek readers. The positive response to the first issue has allowed the paper to recruit more writers who represent more fraternities and sororities on campus just over the winter break, he said. “We currently have 10 Greek organizations represented on the paper’s staff and are busy recruiting more,” said David Alexandre, the contributing editor and also a member of Phi Delta Theta. Blonkvist said editors expect interest in the paper to keep growing. “The first few issues are meant to put it out there and once it gains more credibility, more people will want to write for it,” he said. Lindsey Stephens, president of the Panhellenic Council, said the paper will reflect the Greek community in a positive light and present a different perspective to the student body. “The paper is not meant to create a divide,” she said. “It could create a separation if it was only for Greeks, but it’s not meant only for Greeks to read.” Alexandre said the paper will seek to introduce the entire student body to Greek life on campus. “From the outside looking in, the Greek community can look like one monolithic entity — faceless and stereotypical,” he said. “It’s a pretty amazing opportunity for Greeks in general,” Blonkvist said. “Greeks on campus come under lots of scrutiny, and it’s nice to have a voice to show the positive things we do.” “We hope to leave a legacy,” he said.

While controversy over the Chapel Hill Public Library expansion builds, a resolution is not expected to be reached at tonight’s Town Council meeting. The Chapel Hill Town Council reviewed a proposal on Nov.22 made by University Mall to relocate the library to the current Dillard’s location. This would replace an established plan to expand the library’s current location, said Acting Deputy Town Clerk Amy Harvey. At tonight’s meeting, Town Manager Roger Stancil will update the council on the issue with an “apples to apples” comparison, but the council does not plan to make a decision until next month, Mayor Mark Kleinschmidt said. Kleinschmidt said he has only heard good things about the new proposal in terms of space, parking and increased patronage to the other tenants of the mall, but he said there are still issues that need to be addressed. “We don’t expect every question to be answered,” he said. “There are still some problems about storm water as the mall is in a floodplain. “We need to be careful before building something as important as a library in a floodplain.” Town spokeswoman Catherine

Lazorko said other questions like what a library at the mall would look like may also be discussed. “You can expect to see some preliminary design proposals of how the new mall facade could look with (the library) in place,” she said. Also on the agenda for Monday night’s discussion are the guidelines for homeless shelters and other rehabilitation centers in Chapel Hill. Originally established by the shelter subcommittee in May, the guidelines were revisited by the planning board in order to be submitted to council members. The guidelines include details like proximity to day care facilities, schools and transportation access. The Inter-Faith Council for Social Service’s application for a special use permit to build a transitional housing facility for men near Homestead Road has met with disapproval from some residents due to the proposed location. The application, which will not be discussed at tonight’s meeting, was passed on to the council by the planning board at its Jan. 4 meeting. With this controversy over the location, Kleinschmidt said he expects the meeting to be a lengthy one with much resident input.

went undefeated by knocking off William & Mary, rutgers, st. Francis and Virginia. UNC played in only two games at the smith Center while traveling to Madison square Garden for a neutral game against rutgers.

unC edges out Eagles, 84-83
by KElly PArsoNs
assistant sports editor

One point has been the deciding factor in each of the North Carolina women’s basketball team’s last two games, but Sunday against Boston College, the closely contested match went in favor of the Tar Heels. UNC fell to Georgia Tech 71-70 last week in the Tar Heels’ conference opener, but senior Jessica Breland’s 18 points against the Eagles helped WomEN’s propel North bAsKETbAll Carolina to unC 84 an 84-83 vicBC 83 tory against the Eagles. The Tar Heels led Boston College 47-38 at halftime and held a 17-point lead with 16 minutes left in the game. But during the next three and a half minutes, the Eagles outscored North Carolina 12-4. With just more than three and a half minutes left, a 3-pointer from Boston College’s Kristen Doherty cut UNC’s lead to two. Less than a minute later, guard Kerri Shields followed with yet another three to bring the Eagles within one. Shields hit four 3-pointers in a two-minute span while the Eagles played catch-up. Breland had the game-winning score with just more than minute and a half left, but with just an 84-81 lead, the Tar Heels walked thin ice for the rest of the game. With 21 seconds to go, senior point guard Cetera DeGraffenreid missed the front end of a one-and-one, and 19 seconds later senior guard Italee Lucas did the same. Despite the Tar Heels’ missed opportunities to increase the gap, a turnover and missed 3-pointers kept Boston College from coming back. North Carolina eked out its first conference win of the season and improved to 15-1 overall. In addition to her 18 points and

The North Carolina men’s and women’s swim teams swept the University mEN’s of Kentucky sWimmiNG and ACC-rival Clemson 121 C l e m s o n i n unC 173 their first home contests of the spring season WomEN’s on Saturday. sWimmiNG T h e m e n’s Clemson 109 and women’s unC 184 t e a m s c o m bined with the divers to win 27 of 32 total events and achieve the overall top-slot at the Koury Natatorium. The ninthranked men beat the Tigers 173-121 and topped the Wildcats 182-111. On the women’s side, UNC beat Clemson 184-109 and downed Kentucky 167.5-121.5. “It was a great afternoon of swimming,” head coach Rich DeSelm said. “We were well focused, and while perhaps not swimming as well as earlier in the year, the athletes understand that the training

trip takes a toll on their bodies.” For the men, senior Tyler Harris led the team with three wins in the 200- and 500-yard freestyle and the 200-yard individual medley. Tommy Wyher also boosted UNC’s score with a first-place finish in the 100-yard backstroke, and senior Vinny Pryor followed with a second-place finish in the 100-yard breaststroke. Wyher’s efforts were also crucial earlier in the afternoon as he competed in the winning 200-yard medley relay. “We all just stepped up as a team,” Pryor said. “Even though we were tired from all the training we knew we had a job to do and we got it done.” For the girls, senior Rebecca Kane was also a multi-event individual winner, sweeping all three sprint freestyle events. Another stronghold for the Tar Heels included junior captain Laura Moriarty in the 100- and 200-yard breaststroke and the 200-yard individual medley. “Laura is an All-American,”

DeSelm said. “She really shows her leadership for the team in training and in the pool.” DeSelm was proud of his teams’ victories, especially after coming off a nine-day training trip at the Florida Gulf Coast and a nonscored meet Tuesday against Penn State. The women have a two-week break from competition before traveling to Virgina on Jan. 22 for a dual meet. While the men will also swim against Virginia, they first have to conquer the teams at the Dallas Classic in Texas next Friday and Saturday. Eight North Carolina swimmers and one diver will compete against a field that includes Southern Methodist, Purdue, Southern California, Michigan and Florida. “We’ve got some real concrete things we want to accomplish,” DeSelm said. “The heart of our season is coming.” Contact the Sports Editor at sports@dailytarheel.com.

Prior to Sunday’s win in Chestnut Hill, Mass., the Tar Heels had a successful four-game run during winter break. UNC closed out 2010 with wins against South Carolina, College of Charleston and Gardner-Webb, beating each opponent by at least 21 points. In the first game of the new

year, the Tar Heels hosted North Carolina Central and beat the Eagles 97-40. UNC’s 15-game unbeaten streak ended with a loss to Georgia Tech, despite an impressive performance from Lucas, who had a team-leading 21 points in the game. Lucas had another big game against Gardner-Webb when the 5-foot-8 guard registered 29 points in North Carolina’s 83-62 win. Lucas leads the team in scoring this season, averaging 18.2 points per game. Contact the sports editor at sports@dailytarheel.com.

little to show for it in the beginning. Zeller received a pass on the low block on UNC’s first trip down the floor after intermission, but promptly threw the ball out of bounds. The turnover was followed by a period where Henson and Zeller peppered the rim with close-range jumpers, hook shots and lay-ups, only to see each of the four attempts rim out of the basket. Zeller finally scored nearly five minutes into the half to end UNC’s 8:53 scoring drought. “It was (frustrating), but that’s

going to happen to a team,” Henson said. “You’re not going to shoot perfect every game.” From there, the Tar Heels’ frontcourt trio started to click. Zeller and Henson scored eight straight points, four of which came from Zeller free throws, to give UNC the lead with 3:15 to play. After Virginia tied the game on the next possession, it was Knox who put the Tar Heels ahead for good with a pair of free throws of his own. “We knew that we had to get it inside, and they started getting in foul trouble inside, which makes it even easier for us when their starters aren’t in,” Zeller said. Midway through their ACC opener Saturday afternoon, the Tar Heels went big. Then they went home — victorious. Contact the Sports Editor at sports@dailytarheel.com.

Greeted by frigid temperatures and even stiffer competition, the North Carolina wrestling team had a less-than-pleasant weekend in northern territory. The trip WrEsTliNG began with a unC 8 19-17 loss at the rutgers 26 hands of Hofstra on Saturday and unC 17 culminated in a 28-6 beating at hofstra 19 No. 19 Rutgers the next day. “It was a rough trip,” coach C.D. Mock said. “We got up there Friday morning. There was a lot of snow, and our team didn’t wrestle very well at all against Hofstra, which is a team, to me, that we should have beaten on paper.” The Pride squeezed past the visiting Tar Heels in a see-saw affair that saw the opposing sides take five matches each. A Hofstra pin in the 133-pound

match with Pat Owens ultimately tipped the scales in the Pride’s favor. For the Tar Heels, freshman Corey Mock and senior Thomas Scotton continued their early-season successes, while redshirt sophomore team captain Nick Shields appeared in his first dual meet since suffering a season-ending injury early last season. While UNC fared worse at Rutgers, Mock was pleased with the effort he saw against a team that sent four ranked wrestlers to the mat on Sunday. “Today I felt like we wrestled actually pretty well,” Mock said. “All of our guys wrestled for seven minutes, and they wrestled hard. We just wrestled a much better team than we are, and we got beat by the better team.” A bright spot for UNC was freshman Antonio Giorgio’s performance. Giorgio picked up a 9-3 decision in the 184-pound match. “He’s fun to watch,” Scotton

said. “For a big guy, he can do some moves where I’m like, ‘Man, I can’t believe he moves like that.’ He’s knocking on the door. He’ll definitely progress as the season moves forward.” The win for Giorgio came a day after he secured a technical fall against Hofstra in the first 197pound match of his career. The freshman has compiled a 14-9 record thus far. The only other Tar Heel decision came immediately after Giorgio’s win. Redshirt freshman Zac Bennett won his 197-pound bout against Michael Wagner, 3-1. The Tar Heels (4-4) will have a shot at redemption Saturday when they host No. 12 Virginia Tech and Clarion at Carmichael Arena. “We need to work hard this week,” Giorgio said. “We’re putting in way too much time to not be winning these matches.” Contact the Sports Editor at sports@dailytarheel.com.

Tar Heels win sloppy ACC opener
“I feel like I’ve been inside the cookie jar, the cookie store... and stole every cookie out of the jar." roy wiLLiaMs, UnC CoaCh

UNC overcomes 9-minute scoring drought in comeback
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. — Basketball games that come down to the wire are typically decided by the team that wants it more. North Carolina’s ACC season opener against Virginia on Saturday was not one of those Men’s games. basketbaLL The two ACC squads struggled Virginia 56 with sub-27 percent shooting in the UnC 62 second half before the Tar Heels pulled away in the final minute, winning 62-56 in Charlottesville. “I feel like I’ve been inside the cookie jar, the cookie store, and stole every cookie out of the jar and stole every cookie out of the store and I want to get out of town as fast as I can,” UNC coach Roy Williams said. “It was one of the ugliest W’s I’ve ever been involved with.” For most of the game, the Tar Heels and Cavaliers looked like two one-armed boxers battling in the ring. While UNC did orchestrate a comeback after trailing by 11 in the second half, it did so with 7-for-26 shooting. Starting at the 5:01 mark, junior forward Tyler Zeller hit two sets of free throws on back-to-back UNC possessions to knot the game at 50. John Henson gave UNC its first lead since 3:56 in the first half when his drive from the top of the key and finger roll put the Tar Heels up by two. North Carolina staved off a couple of Jontel Evans’ drives with the help of a clutch rejection by Harrison Barnes and several free throws after the Cavaliers began fouling in desperation. “It was a big play for us,” Williams said. “I didn’t want to let Jontel go in there and lay it up twice in a row like we did. We didn’t want to give up the 3 or give them a lay-up that quickly either.” UNC went 8:53 without a basket during a period that spanned both halves. In that time, Virginia posted 11 points while North Carolina missed 13 shots and committed six fouls. “Unfortunately, it’s not the first time we’ve done that,” Zeller said. “We’ve done it a couple times. We knew at that point and time we had to do better and start making shots.” UNC improved its defense out of intermission and held the home team to eight points in the first eight minutes of the frame. Zeller put in the Tar Heels’ first basket of the half at 15:03 to end the drought. But UNC really made up the margin from the freethrow line. The Tar Heels went 17-for-22 in the second half from the stripe after the Cavaliers committed 15 fouls. “For the most part I thought our positioning was pretty good,” Virginia coach Tony Bennett said. “When we trapped I thought we were really aggressive and we talk about position and not getting stretched. They’re a physical team and they’re big and they keep coming at you and because we were a little outsized we probably picked up some, but there were some tough calls. That’s part of it.” Zeller led UNC with 12 points and was the only Tar Heel in double figures. Virginia had four players with 10 or more points, with freshman KT Harrell posting 13. Henson, who shoots 35 percent from the line, was once again held out late in the game. He played only 20 minutes for UNC — shorter than any other starter from either team. He continued to have his hand wrapped after injuring his thumb against Illinois on Nov. 30. “I’m going to stop wearing the tape next game,” Henson said. “We just had it one more game. It’s fine. I don’t know about the minutes though, I don’t look at that.” Contact the Sports Editor at sports@dailytarheel.com.

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. — Go big or go home. It’s an aphorism repeated by UNC-Chapel Hill students on Franklin Street numerous times each weekend. And though the slogan has justified more than a few ill-advised decisions over the years, it was good advice for the UNC men’s basketball team during halftime of its 62-56 win at Virginia on Saturday afternoon. “Just getting the ball inside, that’ll open it up for everybody because they were double-teaming,” UNC forward John Henson said. “Just getting some easy buckets, and just kind of build around that. And that’s what happened.” At the time, the Tar Heels trailed the Cavaliers 37-30 and had not made a basket for the past three minutes and 56 seconds. Of equal concern, Henson and Tyler Zeller, the team’s starting forwards and two of its three lead-

ing scorers, had taken just two shot attempts during the final nine minutes of the half. The Cavs outscored UNC 19-6 during that stretch. Those nine minutes were a sharp departure from the beginning of the game, when Henson, Zeller and back-up power forward Justin Knox attempted shots on eight of UNC’s first 15 possessions to help the Tar Heels build a 22-13 advantage. UNC lost its poise when the Cavaliers started coming back, and a spate of turnovers caused the Tar Heels to start settling for quick, outside jumpers instead of pushing the ball to its big men in the paint. “The first eight or ten minutes, we were executing and then all of the sudden we just started turning the ball over and we just got ugly,” UNC coach Roy Williams said. The Tar Heels opened the second half with a new mindset, but had

north Carolina bests Tennessee in wild bowl game
by Louie HorvatH
senior writer

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – T.J. Yates got his storybook ending, after all. In t h e Fr a n k l i n FootbaLL American Mortgage Music UnC 30 City Bowl, Yates looked tennessee 27 as if he let his chance get away when Dwight Jones 2 oVertimes let Yates’ 4th down hurl fall incomplete with 1:36 remaining. But Yates got a second opportunity with 31 seconds remaining, and he drove the Tar Heels 57 yards to set up Casey Barth for a field goal, en route to an otherworldly 30-27 double-overtime win against Tennessee. When Jones dropped the 4th-and-20 pass, Yates wondered if he had thrown the final ball of his college career. “A lot of guys on offense didn’t think we’d get another chance, and I was one of them,” Yates said. “I was coming off the field thinking the game was over, but we had two timeouts and the defense could give us a shot.” The defense held serve, stifling three

Volunteer runs for a loss of 1 yard, setting the stage for a dramatic ending. Dramatic may be an understatement, as referee Dennis Lipski announced the “game is over” with UNC losing 20-17 and no time left on the clock. A lengthy review later, Lipski gave the Tar Heels a five-yard penalty and one second. Barth put the field goal down the middle, sending the game to overtime. The defense came up large in overtime, as Quan Sturdivant picked off a Tyler Bray pass to get UNC the chance to win with a field goal, which they did three plays later. The Volunteers were able to move the ball through the air after safety Deunta Williams fractured his right fibula in the first quarter, connecting on long balls of 29 and 45 yards. “He’s one of our leaders,” junior defensive tackle Quinton Coples said. “His injury took a toll on us, as far as him being out and injured.” Lost in the final 16 seconds of regulation were the contributions of the game’s MVP. Running back Shaun Draughn took home

the award with 160 yards on 23 carries. “Shaun had a great night,” UNC coach Butch Davis said. “It was great to see him back healthy, 100 percent able to run.” Draughn got a sizeable chunk of that on one run in the first quarter, when he ran right, and the offensive line cleared every Vol out, leaving Draughn staring at just Janzen Jackson in the way of the end zone. “ T he run that I had in the first half, it was perfect,” Draughn said. “They blocked it up perfect. They parted, and there was just one more person to beat.” Beat him Draughn did. He cut back toward the middle of the field, leaving Jackson on the ground, having grasped at nothing but air. “We missed him all year long, but he sure came through tonight like a complete champion,” Davis said.

Football coach Butch Davis will remain at the helm of the program in 2011, according to a post on the team’s official Twitter on Dec. 19. “Butch Davis will be UNC’s coach in 2011. Lots of false rumors circulating in wake of Carolina’s recruiting success,” @TarHeelFootball said. Team spokesman Kevin Best said the revelation is nothing new and was confirmed on Nov. 18 at a UNC Board of Trustees meeting.

UNC was 1-1 against ranked teams entering its match against Texas at Greensboro Coliseum. The men’s basketball team climbed back from a 10-point hole to go up by one point with 1:51 remaining in the game thanks to Dexter Strickland and Kendall Marshall combining for seven points. But with 1.4 seconds left, Texas guard Cory Joseph buried a jumper in Strickland’s face, giving Texas the win, 78-76.

Tough loss
The North Carolina women’s basketball team earned its first loss of the season Jan. 6 in Atlanta, when the Tar Heels fell to Georgia Tech 71-70. UNC held a seven-point lead with 1:40 left in the game, but failed to score again in the conference-opening loss. The Tar Heels entered the game ranked No. 8 in the country while the Yellow Jackets were unranked.

After being suspended for the upcoming baseball season due to academic reasons, sophomore outfielder Brian Goodwin has decided to transfer to Miami Dade College, team spokesman Dave Schmidt confirmed Jan. 3. Goodwin would have had to wait until after his junior season at UNC to be eligible for the MLB First-Year Player Draft, but community college players can be drafted at any time.
