even though the campaign season for student body president doesn’t officially begin until the second week of the spring semester, most potential candidates begin campaigning almost a year in advance. as the size and scope of these pre-election campaign staffs has grown, the student Code has been forced to adjust to maintain a level of candidate equality in elections.

It’s one of the University’s worst-kept secrets. At least four widely speculated potential candidates are putting the final touches on the more private side of their campaigns before next week’s official declaration of intent to run. Each campaign team is preparing to launch a project that former candidates admit often takes more than a year of quiet planning and careful attention to election rules laid out in the University’s Student Code. And while many involved in current and past student elections admit the rules sometimes leave candidates confused about the legality of their pre-
“The thought was always definitely there,” said current Student Body President Hogan Medlin. Like most successful candidates, Medlin was actively involved in a campaign his sophomore year — that of failed candidate Thomas Edwards. “I was really involved more than I expected,” Medlin said. “Thomas’ campaign helped me wrap my head around the scope of the election’s mechanics.” Most recent candidates launched their campaign the spring of their sophomore year, assembling a core team of advisers and laying the ground work for Getting a head start six months of platform writing and camThe decision to run for student body paign worker recruitment. usually comes early in a candidate’s undergraduate career. see cAMpAiGN, Page 11 campaign actions, few are able to offer a solution to clarify Title VI of the Student Code, which explains only what candidates can’t do. The restrictive and limited nature of the code allows for wide interpretation of the title’s true intent, current and former election officials said. “The code is confusing and complicated for everyone involved,” said current Board of Elections Chairman Andrew Phillips. “Secrecy may not be a service to the student body.”

In a rare move, the University canceled classes on the first day of the semester because of expected adverse weather conditions. Despite a lack of snow accumulation, evening classes after 5 p.m. were canceled Monday and not scheduled to resume until 11 a.m. today. Under Condition 2 of the University’s adverse weather response, offices were kept open and students and employees were encouraged to check the UNC website for updates throughout the day. The University normally operates under Condition 1 and only closes offices under Condition 3, the highest response level. In response to criticism of weather cancellations in January 2009, Chancellor Holden Thorp posted a blog outlining the guiding principles he uses regarding snow and ice decisions. “We don’t cancel class lightly,” he wrote. “If we feel it is unsafe to walk on campus, if Chapel Hill Transit is not running, or we have evidence that the roads in are unsafe, then we’ll likely suspend class.” Gov. Bev Perdue declared a
state of emergency for all of North Carolina on Monday as the winter storm dumped snow around the state. Beyond a few flurries, the Triangle has remained dry compared to other parts of the state. The National Weather Service has predicted that snow and icy conditions will continue into Tuesday. N.C. State University and Meredith College in Raleigh both canceled classes Monday evening, while Duke University continued to operate on a regular schedule. When making cancellation decisions, Thorp consults with Chief Jeff McCracken of the Department of Public Safety, the town of Chapel Hill and the University grounds department to ensure staff and students are able to commute to school safely. Though Monday’s classes were canceled before evidence of icy conditions, Mike McFarland, director of university communications, said the cancelation was a necessary step to protect the safety of students. “I’ve worked for the University for a while and I can’t remember class cancellation on the first day of

Cursing in public might still be frowned upon, but at least it will no longer be a crime. Orange County Superior Court judge Allen Baddour struck down last Monday a 98-year old law, which prohibits any person from using indecent or profane language within the earshot of two or more people while on a public road. T he case was brought to court after Chapel Hill resident Samantha Elabanjo was arrested last February for profanity on a public highway after cursing at two police officers. Elabanjo said she used the words “damn” and “asshole” while standing by a bus stop on Franklin Street. At a trial in July, Elabanjo was found guilty on the profanity charge. But the ruling was overturned by Baddour on the grounds that the ban against profanity is both too broad and unconstitutional. Matthew Quinn, an attorney cooperating with the American Civil Liberties Union who represented Elabanjo in her appeal, said the ban was unconstitutional because his client is protected by
“I have no idea what is indecent or is profane, and nobody else does for that matter.”
MAtthew QuiNN, aTTorney
the First Amendment, which guarantees free speech. “This is a matter of constitutional right,” he said. “Irrespective of my client’s behavior, the law is vague in determining what counts as profanity. “I have no idea what is indecent or is profane, and nobody else does for that matter,” Quinn said. He said the case will now act as a precedent for other free speech violations. It would be difficult for anyone in Orange County to be convicted with this charge again, Quinn said. However, the Orange and Chatham County District Attorney Jim Woodall said he is unsure of the significance of the case. “I’m not indicating that it’s not important — constitutional rights are imperative matters — but profanity on a public highway is seldom a single charge,” Woodall said.

FEATURED ONLINE READER COmmENT:
freshman business major from roanoke rapids.
“A biodiversity advocate for commencement. Dang how inspiring. Hopefully it will at least be short.
sAm, on the selection of environmentalist e.o. wilson to give the 2011 commencement address
Because everyone else is doing it
t happened again. It came and it went. As expected, “the most wonderful time of the year” left untold millions of dollars in credit card debt and thousands of pounds in guilty, sugared pleasures. It left trees, stripped of elaborate decor, at our curbsides awaiting pickup. It left Snooki having to change her plans for New Years Eve when New Yorkers firmly refused her request to ride the ball down in Times Square. And it left a question in my head: Why do we continue to jump on this holiday bandwagon, year after year? Sure, various cultures have religious ties to the season, but none require all the busy materialism. And don’t get me wrong, I love time with the close family and seasonal traditions as much as anyone else. But the excess hustle and bustle of the holidays is just inescapable. No matter how stressful the gatherings are with those distant relatives that we really don’t like but are obliged to see yearly, we still go through with them. We jump on the one-horse open sleigh only because millions worldwide are doing it too. And we see these same trends year round. They’re the clothes we buy, regardless of taste, to fit the social norm. They’re the games that we attend because 60,000 fans claim that they’re fun. They’re the episodes of Glee that we watch so that we can have a basis of conversation with all the other ‘Gleeks’ the next day. The bandwagons may even have pressured some of us to come to college — after all, everyone else was doing it. Social scientist Muzafer Sherif hypothesized that this “mirroring” is human nature. In a 1935 social experiment, he asked individuals to estimate the distance that a dot traveled across a screen. Next, he put them in groups and asked them to do the same experiment aloud. Because the group answers were roughly identical while the individual answers were starkly different, he concluded that people conform to group norms when they’re put in an ambiguous situation. In the 1950s, Solomon Asch continued to investigate the fragility of individuality in mass societies. When participants in a study were confronted with contrary opinions of the majority, his study showed that their tendency was to conform and adapt the more accepted opinion. Basic perceptions would probably tell most responsible parents that it is not okay to sit their children on the lap of an old, bearded man in the middle of the mall. But as Asch’s experiment shows, majority trumps intuition. And when we’re unsure of how best to use our time, what to buy or how to help out, we simply look around. So I guess what the holidays left me wondering was how our lives would be different if we didn’t fall victim to this compelling need to do what others are doing. What creative ways might we find to keep warm in absence of The North Face and Uggs? What other investments could be made with four years worth of hard work and tuition money? Would action by choice prevail in lieu of the manipulation from the masses? I think yes. But our culture neither backs this re-evaluation nor advocates careful examination of our decisions as free and fully responsible human beings.
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
iFC shelter a success for homeless and community
TO THE EDITOR: For almost 50 years the InterFaith Council has led Orange County in addressing the hunger and homelessness that are as much a part of our community as UNC’s ivied halls and Chapel Hill’s quiet neighborhoods. Since 1985, various task forces have attempted to locate a men’s residential facility that could offer a greater range of services than our current location, the Old Municipal Building, can provide. Now — thanks to UNC trustees, the Town of Chapel Hill, congregations, business leaders, IFC staff and volunteers — this facility is planned for 1315 Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd., a site buffered from residential neighborhoods that will afford clients access to public transportation for jobs, classes, social services and a safe haven in which to learn skills and receive support needed to resume useful places in the community. Because I’ve been an IFC volunteer and board member for over a decade, I see this development as a dream come true. But many in the community see it as a threat and are determined to derail the project. I understand the fear that underlies such opposition. I invite those who oppose the IFC’s plans to join us for lunch at Community House. You will see that IFC’s clients are not an amorphous, threatening mass, but just folks, many of them in unfortunate circumstances, but as worthy of a place in this community — and as willing to be a good neighbor — as you or me. Ann Henley Chapel Hill Resident
new grade input system is inefficient, burdensome
TO THE EDITOR: For years we have been clamoring for a computerized system to transmit course grades at the end of the semester. Now, in fall 2010, UNC administrators finally unveiled the new software. Intended to relieve us of the arcane way this onerous task has been done for decades, perhaps centuries, UNC implemented a poorly designed, outmoded system which barely improves on what we have done in the past (and who knows how much was paid for this). Shame! What we have now is not that much improved over the triplicate carbon forms we filled out last year. Each grade must be input manually. This creates a situation which is as error prone as the one we have had for years. Why is there no way to upload our grades like we have been doing with BlackBoard for years? Why must we input grades twice? True, administrators have eliminated one step of copying the grades. But as instructors, our burden was not lightened — rather, the poorly documented system simply replaced one bad system with another. This system seems to be a throwback to software developed 10 years ago. It has the look and feel of code written in the early ’90s, awkward and clumsy. Where is the leadership on this campus? Who makes these decisions? Have they consulted those of us doing the work? Going from Cuneiform to Hieroglyphics does not strike me as an advance. For shame, administrators at UNC! Jonathan M. Lees Professor Geological Sciences
When policy meets principle
Administrators showed meaningful, if subdued, commitment to values in face of discrimination
crimination — even on the grounds of sexual orientation. And yet UNC, especially as a public institution, was essentially powerless to disassociate or change policy. Isaacson’s experience tested this tenuous balance between the school’s values and its obligations to the military. Here was a student who was forced to leave UNC because of who she was, and with few discretionary funds, it wasn’t possible for the University to cover her debt. Faced with this dilemma, the administration acted admirably, if not conspicuously. Public outcry by the University’s or the system’s leaders was effectively non-existent. But, according to Isaacson, the relative public silence belied an incredible concern by an essentially helpless administration for her own welfare. She says she received e-mails from both former UNC-system president Erskine Bowles and Chancellor Holden Thorp. She was also in close contact with members of the Dean of Students Office. A more outward expression of solidarity would have been appreciated. But Isaacson had a point: Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell was a national policy that administrators could simply not have changed. Still, public knowledge of their concern would have been more beneficial, as it’s just about all that administrators could do. Isaacson isn’t sure if her debt will be rescinded. She isn’t even sure what the outcome of her case will be. One thing she is certain of: “I was incredibly supported.”
he repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell on Dec. 18, while still not officially enacted, still marks a milestone in the progress toward equal rights. Here at UNC, it hits especially close to home. It is a bright spot in the struggle of Sara Isaacson to serve her country openly. Isaacson was asked to leave UNC’s Army ROTC program when she came out as a lesbian last year, in addition to being saddled with a nearly $80,000 tuition bill. The repeal also highlights the importance of UNC adhering to its institutional values, even when it is forced to capitulate to contradictory policies. Until a month ago, the most pronounced asymmetry between UNC and the military was a commitment to nondis-
IFC compromises contradict opponents’ continued claims
As a result of the views expressed by the public, the IFC has made changes to the way the newest shelter will operate. The shelter staff will make sure the residents are both clean and sober. There will also be a “no visitor” policy to keep people who do not qualify for the program away from the shelter and the surrounding community. In order to be eligible for the program, a prospective resident will need to be referred by an outside organization. Moran said that the shelter is still planning the logistics of monitoring the sobriety of residents. It should solidify those soon. However, with the requirement of a referral to enter the shelter, most residents will already be screened for addictions and other problems. The IFC seems to recognize the importance of a clean shelter to keeping the community happy. Another point of contention was the policy of allowing more people to use the shelter when inclement weather occurs. The people who use the shelter during this time would not be have to be referred to use the shelter. While a valid concern, this will only occur in extreme weather situations, when it is too cold or dangerous to be outside, and will only be used when absolutely necessary. The IFC and the new shelter were right to include the opinions of the public in these policies. Claims by those still opposed to the shelter’s move that the IFC has not been accommodating are overblown.
he new Community House Men’s Shelter to be located on Homestead Road remains a hotly debated topic among the shelter’s soonto-be-neighborhood. Citizens have complained about its proximity to a preschool and the possible decrease in property value. However, compromises by the Inter-Faith Council, which will operate the new shelter, indicate a valiant effort to value the viewpoint of the community in designing its guidelines for the shelter. At least three community discussion meetings were held last year in order for community members to voice their concerns. In total, about 300 people attended the meetings, said Chris Moran, executive director of the IFC.
seelinger’s unsolicited legal advice unwanted
TO THE EDITOR: This letter is in response to the Carolina Review’s Dec. 3 article titled “ASG Breaking the Law,” by Marc Seelinger. As the former ASG Vice President of Legislative and Public Affairs, I do not take kindly to Mr. Seelinger’s misrepresentation of my service to students. As an aspiring journalist, he would have done well not to make audacious claims about laws, which he is neither qualified nor licensed to interpret. Considering Mr. Seelinger’s proclivity for doling out legal advice to former ASG officers, he might want to review N.C. General Statutes 84-4 and 84-5. It offers strict penalties for those who attempt to “play lawyer.” However, my best guess, since I am not a licensed attorney, is that Marc would be no more liable for playing lawyer than ASG is for playing lobbyist. Nonetheless, Carolina Review’s Robert Novak-in-training should consider the laws regarding defamation and slander. I would humbly suggest to all those interested in ASG’s advocacy efforts to read “So Sue Me,” an article written by former ASG President Greg Doucette. It answers most of Mr. Seelinger’s assertions about ASG’s lobbying activities. The logic found in Greg’s article is both sound and devoid of emotional rhetoric. Chazz Clevinger UNC ’09
dTh must apologize to families of wwii soldiers
TO THE EDITOR: As I read and reread the DTH on Tuesday, Dec. 7, I became infuriated. The entire DTH staff should be deeply ashamed for not once mentioning the attack on Pearl Harbor that occurred 69 years ago. Perhaps the DTH staff somehow forgot this historic day and the nearly 2,500 honorable men and woman who lost their lives? Perhaps there were too many other important articles, not leaving space for even a short remembrance article? There is no excuse not to publish even a short article on the attack’s historical significance. What’s most embarrassing is the DTH staff deemed Dec. 7, 2003 (the day the women’s soccer team won one of its countless NCAA championships) more worthy to be mentioned in the “This Day in History” portion than Dec. 7, 1941. The Daily Tar Heel staff ought to apologize to those who lost their lives in the attack, their families and all WWII veterans for slapping them all in the face by not once mentioning the attacks on Pearl Harbor. The DTH staff and all Americans need to be more appreciative of those who have gone before us and sacrificed in order to give us the lifestyle we live today. Never forget!

A teachable tragedy
Shooting strikes a chord for more measured tone
With the recent reminder of the importance of civil dialogue, The Daily Tar Heel editorial board seeks to bring a fair and measured tone to the upcoming student body elections. In that same vein, we call on all candidates in the upcoming elections to continue the tradition of conducting positive campaigns focused on policy, and not take the lesson from national politics to launch angry or slanderous personal attacks. The upcoming debates in these elections should lift our community up and not fall into the nation’s pattern of political vitriol. Students should expect poise and fair play. UNC is a campus chock full of politically active and involved students of many political persuasions. Whether you are going to hear a political speech on campus or attending a local rally in Carrboro, take pause to consider your own conduct. Obviously, crazy people with renegade intentions will continue to exist in the future. But political commentators, candidates and voters alike have a responsibility to maintain a civil tone to deprive those renegades of much of the ammunition they use to justify their actions. While there is great sadness this week, the lessons learned provide an important inspiration for a civilized, unified political environment in the months to come.
Perry tsai discusses unconventional resolutions for 2011.
oo often in the media and in our political conversations, elevated and fiery rhetoric is carelessly bandied around. If there is anything that can be gleaned from the tragic shooting of U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, D-Ariz., in Tuscon this weekend, it is a reminder of the importance of our own civility in our political discourse. In this time of national mourning, we all have a responsibility to reflect on the consequences of words that we use in our day-to-day vernacular. The toxic political environment encouraged by politicians and media outlets alike every day divides our nation along racial, ethnic and political lines.

Delaware man was arrested last week after calling police to say he couldn’t escape the house he was robbing. The burglar spent three days in the house, during which he helped himself to two bottles of whiskey and several bottles of gin, before calling 911. He had entered the house by smashing a window, but was too drunk to climb out, a police officer said. The doors were deadbolted shut.

Libraries to honor 150th anniversary of Civil War
In commemoration of the 150th anniversary of the Civil War, the University Library at UNC will hold various events starting in February, and will post daily updates with documents and artifacts showing the southern experience during the war. Before the postings made using Wilson Library’s Southern Historical Collection begin, there will be an exhibit from Feb. 1 through May 8 containing letters, documents and eyewitness accounts from people in Chapel Hill during and before the war. The exhibit will consist of about 160 Chapel Hill-related items and will be displayed in the Melba Remig Saltarelli Exhibit Room in Wilson Library. There will also be several talks over the course of the semester and exhibits in 2013 and 2015.
After two years on Franklin Street, Toots & Magoo is closing its downtown doors at the end of the month. The store, a specialty shop located at 142. E. Franklin St., faced financial difficulties as people tightened their budgets in the recession. “There’s no doubt that the economic recession has hit us hard,” said junior Burcu Bozkurt, an employee at the store, in an e-mail. “Most of the products in the store, though beautiful, aren’t necessities so much as they are desirable goods.” Situated next door to Sugarland, the shop boasts a variety of antiques and knickknacks from all over the world. Products include Parisian scarves, a solid bronze Japanese fighting crab sculpture and a victorian dutch birdcage. Cheryle Jernigan-Wicker, the “Toots” in Toots & Magoo and one of its co-owners, said when she
opened the store she dreamed of restoring the old-time feel of downtown Chapel Hill. With stores like Target and The Streets at Southpoint in the area, she said it was difficult for a small store like hers to survive. But students and the community don’t have to say goodbye to the store’s trendy scarves and conversation pieces. The store’s website will continue to sell most things the store currently stocks. Bozkurt said students tended to believe that the gifts were too expensive for their budgets. She said high rent characteristic of Franklin Street storefronts forced the shop to raise its prices. The location is owned by UNC. In preparation for the close, Toots & Magoo’s owners have discounted the entire store. The owners are not trying to break even, just get what they can from their investment, JerniganWicker said. She said she would return to art dealing after the closing and does

Two UNC student projects chosen for health care prize
Two projects from UNC students are among the five chosen to compete for a $5,000 prize through the Emerging Issues Prize for Innovation. The prize, being offered this year for the first time, was created by the Institute for Emerging Issues, which challenged two- and fouryear N.C. colleges to find innovative ways to address childhood and adolescent obesity. One UNC project, called Rascals, uses watch-based pedometers to track activity that can be recorded for points. Points can be exchanged online for gift cards and other online rewards. The other project from the University is called the Little Red Wagon, and it will travel to areas with limited resources and access to grocery stores. Volunteers will deliver fresh produce at a low price and encourage activity among patrons. Other projects were chosen from N.C. State University, the N.C. Youth Food Council and TriCounty Community College. At this point, finalists have received a $1,000 prize and must now create a video to showcase their ideas. The winner will be announced Feb. 8. at the 2011 Emerging Issues Forum.
UNC football hires former Panthers coach for D-line
Former Carolina Panthers defensive line coach Brian Baker will call the shots in that same position next year at UNC, football coach Butch Davis announced Monday. Baker coached 11 seasons in the ACC before going to the professional level for the past 15 years. “Brian is regarded as one of the top defensive line coaches in the NFL and his experience was appealing because of his background as a college coach in the ACC,” Davis said in a statement from the athletic department. “He is an excellent communicator and his knowledge of our recruiting areas was critical.” Baker formally replaces John Blake, who resigned Sept. 5 amid speculation of his involvement in the NCAA investigation. Blake was entering his fourth season as defensive line coach before his resignation, as well as recruiting coordinator and associate head coach.

Tyler Mills doesn’t claim to know much about Jodie Foster. But at a Blockbuster store closing sale, Mills came home with a huge cut-out of her face. Now, Foster greets him everyday, announcing the entrance into the office of the new Carolina Union Activities Board president. Mills, a senior, was chosen this month as CUAB president for the 2011 spring semester. He is taking over the position from former president Adele Ricciardi, who graduated in December. “He understands my ideas and goals for CUAB to make our organization more creative and accessible to the student body this year and I know that he will be successful in carry-
ing our mission,” Ricciardi said in an e-mail. CUAB is funded by more than a quarter of general student fees, and aims to use all of its allotted budget for campus enrichment. The group rarely makes a profit. Its programming, which this semester includes a performance from Outkast’s Big Boi as well as the smaller-scale air guitar competition, is chosen by the group’s board. Student fees allocated are balanced by the size and popularity of an event. Mills’ involvement in CUAB began in 2009 when he and three friends participated in a “sweding” competition — a phenomenon that recreates a roughly edited version of a popular movie — first introduced in the 2008 film “Be Kind Rewind.” The four remade “The Fast and the
Furious” from memory in about two hours’ time. “It was pretty bad,” Mills said with a laugh. He later attended the now-annual air guitar competition, reveling in what he calls the “goofy and funny” CUAB atmosphere. As a junior, Mills joined the pop culture committee — formerly the music and media committee. There, he said he learned how to plan and organize events. These skills prepared him most for becoming chairman of the pop culture committee in the fall of 2010 and for his new position as president, he said. “You have to manage your ideas and balance them with realistic expectations,” Mills said. As president, Mills said he hopes to continue CUAB’s recent successes. This fall’s

Chancellors asked his advice. Students sought his help. For years, Douglass Hunt was the man the University looked to in times of need. “He was in many ways the keeper of the flame,” said James Moeser, chancellor from 2000 to 2008. “He knew the history of the place, he knew the culture of the University and the state. “If I ever had a question about why something was the way it was, Doug Hunt was certainly the key person I could get that information from.” Hunt died Jan. 1. He was 86. Hunt graduated Phi Be ta Kappa from the University in 1946 and returned to serve as vice chancellor for administration in 1973. From 1980 to 1996, Hunt served as special assistant to the chancellor. He partially retired in 1996 but continued working part time as the assistant to the chancellor until 2002. Hunt worked closely with Paul Douglass Hardin, chancel- Hunt was a lor from 1988 to close adviser 1 9 9 5 . Ha r d i n for UnC said Hunt was chancellors. one of the first people to greet him upon his arrival. “I was a newcomer to Carolina, and Douglass Hunt knew more about the University historically, but also the then present-day organization and the people who were key,” Hardin said. “He made sure I knew everybody.” Hardin said respect for Hunt’s expertise extended to the student body. “When the students had concerns, they would often go to Douglass even before they came to the vice chancellor of student affairs or one of our other deans,” Hardin said. “He had been a student here himself and he was very fond of students,” he added. “He made it a point to get to know them.” But Hardin said Hunt had more than just a professional impact on his life. “More interesting to me than what he did was who he was and what he represented,” Hardin said. “He was a gentleman of the old school. He always dressed with a coat and tie. He was almost courtly in his behavior — an old fashioned gentleman. But not to sell him short, he was also bright and up-to-date in his understanding of things.” In a statement issued Jan. 4, Chancellor Holden Thorp celebrated Hunt’s illustrious service to the University. “Doug Hunt was one of Carolina’s model citizens,” Thorp said. “His love for and knowledge of the University was especially intense. The University community has lost an incredible resource.” Moeser echoed his successor’s sentiments, saying Hunt was a persistent servant of the University. “We’ll remember him as a person who loved his University dearly, who really understood its values and its culture and was a steadfast and stern defender of those values,” Moeser said.

national unemployment rate dips to 9.4 percent
nC rate is still among the highest
by MaDeLiNe WiLL
After months of rising national unemployment rates, the most recent number shows a slight dip. The U.S. Department of Labor reported that the national unemployment dropped to 9.4 percent in December. The latest number for North Carolina has not yet been released, -From staff and wire reports but the rate is expected to be
slightly higher than the national average. Unemployment in the state has fluctuated little since August. The latest rate was reported to be 9.7 percent in November —up 0.1 percent since October. Larry Parker, acting spokesman of the Employment Security Commission of North Carolina, said he’s not surprised that the state has not seen a major improvement
in unemployment rates. North Carolina has one of the highest unemployment rates in the country, he said. It has the 14th highest unemployment rate of all states and Washington, D.C. “We’re certainly in a better place than we were last year,” Parker said. “Things have been kind of static,” he said. “We haven’t had a lot of job growth but we haven’t had a lot of job losses.” UNC economics professors say
that while the state’s unemployment rate has continued to stay stagnant, there are still high hopes for a slow recovery. “The national situation on unemployment is unclear right now, but I think there’s reason to be cautiously optimistic,” said Michael Salemi, an economics professor. There has been a sharp decrease in layoffs, the largest in recent history, Salemi said. “Job growth has been modest, but new unemployment benefits are not increasing, meaning that
employers are hanging onto the employees they have,” he said. The number of people applying for unemployment benefits has also decreased, Salemi said. “It looks like people who are holding jobs are more confident about the upcoming year,” he said. Because of this boosted confidence, many workers have increased their consumer spending, which is a positive sign for

To gun owners, those laws — which allow them to carry guns in their cars, in restaurants and other public places — are their last defense against unexpected evil. Gun-control activists say the state’s laws put weapons into the hands of the mentally unstable, and they demand that federal officials impose tougher background checks and reinstate a ban on assault weapons.

Clashes leave at least 30 dead in sudan First rocky planet JUBA , Sudan (MCT) — another of manipulating Abyei’s outside of system
Clashes in recent days between Arab nomads and tribesmen have left at least 30 people dead and raised fears Monday that the independence referendum in southern Sudan could lead to widespread violence in the disputed, oil-rich region of Abyei. Straddling the volatile area where northern and southern Sudan meet, Abyei is a dangerous mix of heavily armed Arab cattle herders loyal to the northern government of President Omar Hassan Ahmed Bashir and Dinka Ngok tribesman aligned with the southern leadership. The region has long been a flashpoint. The south and the northern-led government in Khartoum have accused one clans as proxies in a larger struggle over control of grazing lands, water and oil. A separate referendum this week on whether Abyei would join north or south was delayed over unresolved political issues and fears of renewed bloodshed. “We will not accept Abyei to be part of the south,” Bashir told Al-Jazeera television over the weekend. “If any party takes independent action over Abyei, that would be the beginning of a conflict.” This has left the territory in a precarious limbo. Exactly what has happened over the last three days is difficult to discern on a landscape where northern and southern armies have bolstered their forces in recent months. SAN JOSE, Calif. (MCT) — A team led by NASA Ames researchers has confirmed the existence of the first rocky planet outside our solar system. Kepler-10b is closest in size to Earth of 519 extra-solar planets discovered so far. It is about 11/2 times the Earth’s diameter and speeding around a star similar to our sun in the constellation Cygnus, about 560 light-years away. “It’s unquestionably a rocky world orbiting a star outside our solar system,” said Natalie Batalha, deputy science team leader for the Kepler Mission at NASA Ames. Kepler-10b is solid and not gaseous.
A group of UNC students have created a newspaper to support one of Carrboro’s underrepresented communities. Students in Judith Blau’s social and economic justice class developed The Abbey Court Chronicle to target the needs of children in the mostly Latino community. The students worked on the first edition throughout the fall semester, and the six-page product was available in December. Newspaper designer Evan Bell said part of Blau’s course was exploring the United Nations’ Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Bell said after learning about the article in class, she and her classmates were able to apply the ideologies to the real world by offering a vehicle of communication for the community members. “It’s a human right to have freedom of expression, and we took that as the background for the paper,” Bell said. “It’s maybe not the nicest

place, but (Abbey Court) is a wonderful place where wonderful people exist who are doing great things.” Abbey Court Chronicle writer Ben Knoedler said though the newspaper was mostly geared toward the children, his article on fair trade was intended for parents. Knoedler said he wrote the article because Blau emphasized the topic in class, and he wanted to take what he learned in the classroom and apply it to his service project. Knoedler said he and his classmates also wanted to focus on the children of the community because they wanted to inspire them. “One of the reasons why we were doing it for the kids was to express our gratitude for giving us the opportunity to work with them,” said Knoedler. Emilee Bunker, another writer for the newspaper, said she liked the opportunity to give a community that doesn’t normally get much attention a chance to be represented. “Sometimes, there are so many service projects that we overlook
people who are right around the corner,” Bunker said. Blau’s students are required to participate in one of 26 different projects throughout the semester that mostly revolve around the neighborhood. Blau, who runs the Human Rights Center of Chapel Hill and Carrboro out of two Abbey Court apartments, said she chose to focus efforts on the community because she wanted to foster participation and involvement in its culture. Blau said she hopes the newspaper can be continued by future students as well as Abbey Court residents. Eventually she would like the newspaper to reach the larger Latino community. “As parents, we know that the real changes come from our youngsters,” she said. “If this becomes part of the fabric of Abbey Court, the residents will be invited to contribute to it. We want them to be empowered so that they take charge of their lives.” Contact the City Editor at firstname.lastname@example.org.

But Patrick Conway, who also teaches economics, said the state’s economy will see slower improvement due to displacement of one of its main industries — textile mills. “A lot of things we relied on for employment are now being produced at a lower cost in other countries,” he said. “As the economy as a whole recovers, so will North Carolina,” he said. “But it may not happen quite as fast.” This may concern UNC students, particularly seniors who are about to graduate.

Cedar ridge replaces unC gets grant from nFL to study concussions will help its athletic director Fundingdatabase to build
By Sarah Glen
AssistAnt city editor
After suspending an athletic director and head basketball coach after a personnel investigation, Cedar Ridge High School has filled the positions left empty. Cedar Ridge Principal John Wheeler selected Andy Simmons to be the school’s new athletic director after previously serving as assistant athletic director under Jim Pappas, the former director and basketball coach. Pappas was suspended with pay Nov. 9 after an incident with a student school officials cannot comment on. Along with losing his positions as athletic director and basketball coach, Orange County Schools spokesman Michael Gilbert said Pappas’ teaching post was switched from a 12-month to a 10-month position. According to a press release from the school district, Pappas will lose $28,000 in pay annually because of his change in position. Wheeler said he chose Simmons because he is dependable and is willing to work with other coaches. “Simmons has a long list of great qualities and knows a lot about the school,” Wheeler said. Wheeler also picked science teacher Fred Blanks to become the new head basketball coach. Blanks
is the school’s assistant baseball coach. He served as a basketball coach at other schools in the past. “He’s been there, done that, so his experience will be really good for the team,” Wheeler said. Orange High School Varsity Basketball Coach Greg Motley said Cedar Ridge, his team’s main rival, had to postpone at least six games due to the district’s investigation of Pappas. The Orange Panthers and the Cedar Ridge Red Wolves are scheduled to play each other at 3 p.m. Saturday at Orange High School. Motley said this will be Cedar Ridge’s seventh game without Pappas as head coach. “I think getting a new coach at this point in the season would be extremely tough for the kids,” Motley said. Before working at Cedar Ridge, Blanks was Motley’s assistant coach at Orange High for about two years. Pappas was hired by Orange County Schools in November 2001 and has held various positions within the district including athletic director, basketball coach and physical education teacher. If Wheeler approves it, Pappas can volunteer to assist the basketball team.

Some new funding will make it easier for members of a UNC research organization to put their heads together — to reduce head injuries. The Center for the Study of Retired Athletes recently received a $100,000 grant from the National Football League to research the long-term effects of concussions. The center’s grant was matched by the NFL Players Association this year, putting the total funding at $200,000, said Kevin Guskiewicz, chairman of the Department of Exercise and Sport Science and principal investigator of the project. Guskiewicz, who is a member of the NFL Head, Neck and Spine Committee, said the goal of this research will be to build a distinct database identifying what the added exposure to head injuries of NFL players is compared to former college players. He added that the NFL hadn’t always been supportive of his research. “For a number of years the NFL has been critical of our work at UNC because they felt that we were painting an ugly picture of football and we were trying to convince them that our main goal is to improve Contact the City Editor safety in the sport,” he said. This season, the NFL began to at firstname.lastname@example.org.

more aggressively take action against head-to-head tackles out of concern for players’ mental health. Several players received fines for such hits. Judith Cone, special assistant to the chancellor for innovation and entrepreneurship, praised the research for its innovative spirit. “Here’s research that proves that this is an important thing,” she said. “And now [the research] is saving lives.” Amy Matthews, center coordinator for the center, said the money will be used to explore the association between football exposure and dementia in retired football players. The study will bring 16 retired NFL players and 16 former college-only players to campus in February. She said the organization has been researching the topic since 2001. Since 2005, the Center has been able to study over 100 NFL players on campus, Matthews said. Guskiewicz emphasized the importance of the study in improving physical treatment of all athletes. “It’s the greatest game on earth,” he said. “But I’m concerned about the safety of the sport.” Contact the University Editor at email@example.com.

GLENS FALLS, N.Y. — SENIOR POLITICAL SCIENCE
Make your voice heard in 2011
t was back in August that I last took to these pages to ring in the start of a new semester. writing this column, I can say that there is a lot of merit to the cliche that time flies. yet I couldn’t be happier to face the new year. First and foremost, welcome back to our campus and our community. Durham might have made The new york Times’ list of the best places to visit in 2011 (just edging out kosovo) but we all know which corner of the research Triangle has the most acute minds. Last year was mixed for unC. Budget burdens have been a perennial problem as long as I have been here, but the cloud cast over the football program was a source of further bleakness. A tragic death in our own residence halls and sexual impropriety by a professor made the year even more surreal. And yet 2010 saw much of the groundwork laid for 2011. The Board of Governors worked on a new Four-year Tuition Plan, and unC produced a draft of its new Academic Plan. It even ended with two students both widely assumed to be running for student body president this semester feuding over alleged campaign law violations. This semester brings fresh ideas and perspectives. our editorial board and columnist positions have expanded in ways that I believe will keep our content consistently strong. we have columnists exploring numerous topics — from food to athletics to the African-American experience. others will be more thoughtful. Instead of conveying ideas, they may challenge readers to critically evaluate their own: aspects of tradition and culture that we often passively accept. The editorial board will continue to meet three times weekly, reacting to the events and decisions that shape our campus and community. Ideas and angles are discussed and decided on collectively. unsigned editorials represent the opinion of the board at large — just as they do for other newspapers — whose names can be found at the top of the opinion page every day. And, of course, the editorial board will also be conducting endorsement interviews for the spring election. we take endorsements very seriously, and we keep our endorsement process rigorous — there’s no other way to articulate our decision in good confidence. So when endorsements run, know that great thought and consideration went into the decision. with all of the deliberation and thought that goes into the work of an opinion desk, one might think that we’re sick of outside voices. That couldn’t be further from the truth. This desk not only wants —but needs — your voice. And I challenge you this new year: be louder. It may just be kvetching, or it may be sending in letters to the editor. your voice is vital and always welcome. Even if you want to privately discuss a subject, feel free to e-mail the desk. we work to keep our leaders accountable. we need you to keep us accountable. Someone must watch the watchmen.
firstname.lastname@example.org Sarah Frier is serving her second semester on the editorial board. She served last year as the DTH’s city editor and was previously the features editor.
email@example.com Cameron Parker is serving his fifth semester as a member of the editorial board. This is his second semester as the opinion editor.

“It’s usually a charge in conjunction with others,” he said. Baddour said in an e-mail his ruling was case-specific and would not have immediate statewide effect. He also said that the charge is one rarely seen in the Superior Court. Woodall said the approach of Elabanjo’s defense in emphasizing constitutional rights played a role in the different rulings. “Her lawyers conceded that she was acting inappropriately,” he said of the trial in July. Woodall, like Quinn, said he could not provide specific examples of profane words. “There’s been debate from the public that the First Amendment protects freedom of political speech and not profanity, and that the ban is enacted to keep the peace,” Quinn said. Elabanjo said she is pleased with the ruling and happy with the outcome of the appeal. She said she was provoked by the police officers and should not have been arrested for her behavior. “The police just need to let us be,” Elabanjo said.

class in the spring semester before,” McFarland said. “It’s a rare occurrence.” He said the registrar’s office reported that 171 evening classes were canceled, affecting more than 3,400 students. More than 13,000 students are registered for the 450 classes that were canceled before 11 a.m., said Karla Townley-Tilson, general purpose classroom scheduling manager, in an e-mail. The Student Union also canceled events and meetings slated to begin after 5 p.m. The Student Recreation Center and Rams Head Recreation Center closed three hours early, at 9 p.m. They will reopen three hours later than usual today at 9 a.m. Chapel Hill Transit was operating normally as of 7 p.m. Monday. Several students said they were confused about the University announcing closings before snow fell — but were not upset. Junior David Baron said he’s happy about the snow, but he’s ready to get the semester started. “It’s not going to put a damper on anything,” he said. “I’ll have fun in the snow, but I’m going to my 2 o’clock class. I’m excited about beginning second semester.” Contact the University Editor at email@example.com.
“There’s a sense that candidates are soliciting votes early when building their campaign,” said former student body president candidate Shruti Shah, who lost to Medlin in 2010 and is now a member of The Daily Tar Heel’s editorial board. Title VI of the Student Code expressly forbids this campaigning on a large-scale, public basis. “In an ideal world, your campaign starts when you are certified,” Shah said. But former candidates stressed the importance of these kinds of early interactions in building a successful campaign. “A majority of people on campus are blank voters,” said senior Greg Strompolos, who ran for president in 2010. “If you come up to them and say, ‘I’m ‘X’ candidate and I support ‘Y’ values,’ then they’ll vote for you.” Title VI allows for limited campaign building before the January declaration date, restricting candidates to “private” and “discreet” campaign activities. “Discreet campaigning solely consists of workers and staff, and private campaigning is on a strictly personal basis with no more than five people,” Phillips said. With the rise of electronic communication in campaigns — support e-mail listservs and Facebook campaign groups among the preferred techniques — student congresses have been forced to amend the code to reflect these new opportunities for recruitment. “ The guiding principle for election law at Carolina is giving all candidates an even footing,” Phillips said.

ject to punishment in the form of campaign fines. It would end the sometimes constant process of code interpretation and adjustment that figures so prominently in the current system, Tenyotkin said. “The current language can be interpreted or misinterpreted,” Tenyotkin said. “Issues arise when candidates try to circumvent the spirit but not the letter of the law.” The Board of Elections is currently investigating potential candidate Rick Ingram, a junior, to see if campaign recruitment e-mails sent to students violate election law. Board of Elections members say a decision should be reached on the case sometime this week. Former candidates have said that getting an early start on campaigning allowed their staff to devote the proper attention to the composition of a campaign platform. Ultimately, it’s simple early campaign outreach, rather than candidate platforms, that wins elections, said Ryan Morgan, a former Board of Elections chairman. “There’s not a lot of real convincing of voters in a student body president election,” Morgan said. “It’s mostly about name recognition. I don’t think that a lot of people actually read the platforms.” Shah and other candidates recognized this disconnect between their early efforts to build a platform and the effect pre-campaigning had on their election. “You really hope that people are listening to what you have to say,” Shah said. “There were times where it felt like it was less about what I was saying, and more about how many people I knew.” Contact the University Editor at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Former candidates reflect on rules
“understanding the rules is one of the hardest things in a campaign — it’s very hard to interpret them. I was always scared that I was going to break a rule, but everybody always ends up violating them.”

white list, black list
Val Tenyotkin is dreaming of a white list. Tenyotkin, a former student board of elections vice-chairman and Student Congress member, wanted to alter the University’s student code to clarify election policies during his tenure. “It’s a vague code, and it’s difficult to make things clear,” said Tenyotkin, who received his master’s degree at UNC in 2009. His ‘white list’ plan would create a set list of acceptable election procedures, making any action beyond those procedures illegal and sub-
