Tar Heels to play in ninth College World Series

By Kelly Parsons
sports editor

he morning after North Carolina punched its ticket to the 2011 College World Series, Jacob Stallings received a congratulatory text message from friend and Vanderbilt third baseman Jason Esposito. The Tar Heel catchers dad, Kevin Stallings, is the head basketball coach at Vanderbilt, and Jacob Stallings has grown up a fan of the Commodores. But when No. 3-seeded UNC takes on No. 6-seeded Vanderbilt at 2 p.m. on Saturday in Omaha, Neb. for the first game

of the College World Series, Stallings family ties to the black and gold will be overshadowed by his personal hunt for a national championship. Stallings led the Tar Heels to a win against Stanford on Saturday with three hits and three RBI. The win made the Tar Heels one of only three teams with a perfect 5-0 record in the NCAA tournament. But as the Tar Heels pack their bags for their fifth trip to Omaha in six years, coach Mike Fox is putting those successes behind him. Everybody (in the College World Series) is good and everybody has won, Fox said. I think momentum in baseball is from pitch

to pitch, from inning to inning, from dugout to dugout. I think it goes back and forth. You just hope you have it at the end of the game. UNC hasnt played Vanderbilt since Fox began coaching in 1999, and the veteran coach isnt taking the next competition lightly. Vanderbilt is very, very good, Fox said. Scary good, actually. In last weeks MLB draft, Vanderbilt broke an Southeastern Conference record when 12 Commodores were selected. Pitchers Sonny Gray and Grayson Garvin were both picked in the first round.

As the state budget showdown draws to a close in Raleigh, UNC-system administrators are bracing for tough decisions in the months ahead. The system released numbers detailing the impact of the state legislatures budget proposal at last weeks Board of Governors meeting. The proposal would reduce state funding for UNCsystem schools by 14.6 percent or $407 million, including a cut of $35 million for the systems need-based financial aid program. But the actual effects of the cut on individual campuses will be implemented by chancellors and provosts. System President Thomas Ross previously asked chancellors to prepare for a cut as high as 15 percent. Randy Woodson, chancellor of N.C. State University, said the cut will likely be 14 to 15 percent for the campuses with the most resources in the system N.C. State and UNC. Such a substantial reduction in funding will inevitably affect the academic mission of universities, he said. Weve done a lot administratively, as theyve done in Chapel Hill, to try to be efficient, he said. Bruce Carney, executive vice chancellor and provost at UNC, said in an email that he has already been planning for a worst-case funding scenario, and will notify schools and departments of the details of the cuts in July. My task is how to minimize the impact of the cuts, he said. When I see the final budget in July, final decisions will be made. Woodson said course sections at N.C. State will have to be reduced after the elimination of about 140 to 150 faculty positions. And chancellors likely wont be able to rely on the crutch of supplemental tuition increases to offset the cuts in state funding. The board approved supplemental increases for all system schools last year. Tuition for both N.C. State and UNC students increased by $750, the maximum amount allowed in last years state budget. Ross said system lobbyists worked closely with legislators this summer to retain flexibility for implementing cuts and tuition increases across the system. He advised against further tuition hikes at the meeting in addition to average increases of $208 for undergraduate residents and $650 for nonresidents already approved by the board this year. UNC Chancellor Holden Thorp said he understands Ross decision to avoid additional tuition increases after detailed meetings with the president. If that holds, then were happy for our students, he said.

Obama focuses on NC jobs ahead of reelection bid

Economic progress and the youth vote will be crucial for his chances.
By Daniel Wiser
state & national editor

North Carolina is poised to be a battleground state again in the 2012 election, and President Barack Obama knows it. Obama carried North Carolina by less than 15,000 votes in 2008, becoming the first Democratic presidential candidate since 1976 to earn all of the electoral votes from the tradi-

tionally red state. In a speech at Cree Inc. in Durham on Monday, Obama admitted some things have changed since his previous visit to the LED lighting plant on the campaign trail in 2008. Its true, I have a lot more gray hair now then the last time I visited, he said. But I have a better plane. So Id say its a fair trade. But other key economic indicators have not changed as much as Obama would have liked. The national unemployment rate remains stubbornly high at 9.1 percent, and only 54,000 jobs were added in May the lowest tally since January.

Obama met with his Council on Jobs and Competitiveness before his remarks at Cree to discuss measures to improve job creation through partnerships between private companies, community colleges and universities. One such collaborative effort between private companies and universities would offer incentives and funding for 10,000 engineering students every year to complete their degrees, he said. U.S. Rep. David Price, D-N.C., said at the event in Durham that its also important to highlight the role of public investment in university research and its creation of spin-off companies

like Cree, which was founded by a group of N.C. State University engineering students in 1987. We didnt get where we are here in the Triangle by being overly dependent on government, he said. But neither did we get here by demonizing government. Obamas focus on a direct link between college training programs and skilled jobs in the manufacturing sector also suggests efforts to maintain appeal among youthful voters that he effectively mobilized in 2008.

Reports of mental health issues increase

The University is focused on helping to manage stress.

Staff Writer

With a wooden needle in each hand, Beth Gregory pulled out her iPad to check on her progress. Nodding her head, she showed the screen displaying her latest knitting pattern to her friend Kyla Eggen. The pair, who collectively have 15 years of knitting experience, joined a group of six other knitters Saturday to celebrate World Wide Knit In Public Day at the Orange County Public Library. For Gregory, knitting is more than a hobby its an addiction. She constantly checks her profile on, where she uploads pictures of her projects and networks with knitters from across the world to discover her next projects. Its like Facebook for knitters, only so much better because you dont get all the junk, she said. The knitting day celebration began in 2005 as a way for interested individuals to get together and share their passion for knitting. This year it is being celebrated from June 11 to June 19. Knitters in attendance were of all levels of expertise. Marion Felts, a knitting teacher at the Hillsborough Yarn Shop who said she has been knitting for as long as she can remember, offered help to knitting beginners like Ina Phay Johnson and her husband Allen. The Johnsons said they bought their daughter yarn and needles for her birthday, but she didnt enjoy the present. So the couple decided to give knitting a try for themselves. I just love all the bright colors, Ina Johnson said. When the temperature in the top floor of the library climbed to near 100 degrees because of an air conditioning malfunction, the group carted their supplies to the nearby Hillsborough Yarn Shop to continue the celebration. There, Cheryl Welford, who has been knitting for 19 years, joined the group to work on her latest piece. Its relaxing but I still accomplish something, Welford said. When Im done I take a lot of pride in what I did. Welford said she also enjoys knitting because it allows her to do something for other people. She, Felts and Gregory have

all made hats for premature babies in the past, they said. Beyond the opportunity to give back, Gregory said there is also an exciting challenge in every project she completes. You can do things you never imagined, she said. She said one of the most difficult projects she has completed in her knitting career was making a collection of Barbie clothes for her granddaughter.

They are put together like an adult sweater, just smaller, she said. For Felts, knitting is enjoyable because she gets to wear and treasure the things that she makes. There is nothing like homemade socks, she said. You can match all of your outfits. Its all I wear now. Contact the City Editor at

While mental health has always been an issue on college campuses, University officials say the number of reported incidents is on the rise. Dean of Students Jonathan Sauls said mental health issues are being reported more frequently than in the past, but that the number of reported cases doesnt necessarily mean the issues are becoming more prevalent. Sauls attributed the rise in part to an increasingly open culture surrounding treatment of mental illness. People are now coming to campus with more preparations for their mental health, he said. These therapies are helping people come to college that otherwise wouldnt have been able to. We dont want people to think of these issues as stigmas, Sauls added. The issue of mental health most recently surfaced at the University with the death of graduate student Hana Staub, who committed suicide two weeks ago. Her father, Jacob Staub, said last week that his family did not want to hide his daughters suicide. It has become an epidemic, he said. Winston Crisp, vice chancellor for student affairs, said deaths like Staubs are the Universitys major worry in the realm of mental health. This is ultimately what we are trying to avoid, Crisp said. In a 2010 report from the National College Health Assessment, in which 78 percent of UNC students participated, 21.4 percent of participants said

they felt so depressed within the last year that it was difficult to function. Eighty-nine percent said they felt a tremendous amount of stress, while 4.8 percent said they have seriously considered suicide. Sauls said the onset of major physical changes between the ages of 18 and 25 could be a major factor in the prevalence of mental health issues among college students. Both Crisp and Sauls said they have seen students turn to drugs and alcohol as a type of selfmedication. They are the most immediate solution to stress, said Allen OBarr, director of Counseling and Wellness Services. We need a change in the culture of how people deal with stress. Crisp said he does not want students desire to be academically successful to have negative effects on their health. The University offers several resources for students who feel overwhelmed, including the Learning Center, the Writing Center, the dean of students office and drug and alcohol treatment centers, OBarr said. In April, then-freshman Quinn Matney burned himself on the wrist but told friends he had been the victim of a hate crime, his father said. Following Matneys admission that the injury was selfinflicted, officials from the Department of Public Safety took him to Counseling and Wellness Services, his father said. OBarr said his office refers about 25 percent of students to outside help centers, while treating the other 75 percent itself. Sauls said a policy of one-sizefits-all does not work at a university, and that students need multiple resources to help with every type of problem. Contact the University editor at

Gwendolyn Laney wouldnt have bought a house on Dublin Street if she had known about the smell. But now, after living across from the Durham Waste Disposal and Recycling Center for more than 10 years, she cant afford to leave. I dont smell it everyday, Laney said. But sometimes its so strong I have to stay inside. The waste transfer station which holds all of Durhams trash as well as trash from other counties and private haulers before it is shipped to a landfill in Asheville will begin receiving Orange Countys solid waste at some point in 2016, after the countys landfill on Eubanks Road closes. Laney said she is worried that receiving the countys waste will make the smell worse. Im not happy about it, she said. That just means more smell for us.

Other neighbors said the presence of a water treatment plant located down the street might be the source of the odor. Bruce Woody, assistant solid waste disposal manager for the city of Durham, said the transfer station received more than 120,000 tons of trash during the past year. About 90 percent of the waste the transfer station processes comes from Durham, and Woody said receiving Orange Countys trash will increase its waste intake significantly. Unlike the historically black and lowincome Rogers Road neighborhood that houses the countys landfill, Dublin Street is home to business owners, University employees and a variety of ethnic groups. On May 17, the Orange County Board of Commissioners eliminated an option to extend the landfills life to 2018 and voted to create a remediation fund for the Rogers Road community, which has complained for years of odors, contamination and illegal dumping sites because of its proximity to the landfill. Laney said she hopes local officials consider how shipping the countys trash to Durham will affect her community as well. Bernadette Pelissier, chairwoman of the board, said the county doesnt have authority to take action in Durham, but she would like

to see the county find an alternative. I dont like shipping the countys waste to another county, she said. I would really like to see another way for Orange County to deal with its trash. Raymond Hales, who lives across from the transfer station on East Club Boulevard, said he has not had an issue with a trash smell, but occasionally loose trash from the trucks falls into the road in front of his house. Gayle Wilson, solid waste management director for the county, said sending the trash to Durham is a temporary solution, and the county currently has no long-term plan for its solid waste. The board will establish a timeline for closing the landfill and continue discussion on what to do with the countys trash after its summer recess. Monty Gravitte, who lives on Dublin Street and owns Durham Plumbing Repair Inc., said he thinks Orange County should look into a long-term solution for its waste instead of relying on the Durham transfer station. Orange County needs to build their own landfill, he said. They have the land. Contact the City Editor at

Carolina Blood Drive nearly reaches goal of collecting 1,000 units of blood
On June 7, the Carolina Blood Drive managed to collect 989 productive units of blood, just 11 units short of its goal of 1,000 units. The collected amount represents more than half of the 1,600 units needed every day in the American Red Cross Carolinas Blood Services Region, which includes 82 North Carolina counties. The event drew 1,020 people to the Smith Center. Since some were turned away in the screening process, only 974 people donated blood. Some gave double red cells, resulting in more than 974 units. In the last two years the drive collected 976 units, and about 21,000 units total since its start in 1989. Notable University figures who attended the drive included Chancellor Holden Thorp and Patti Thorp, head football coach Butch Davis and Tammy Davis, Bill Roper, dean of the School of Medicine, Chancellor Emeritus Paul Hardin and former basketball player Eric Montross and Laura Montross. The drive is sponsored every year in June by the University and the Red Cross.

Although the November elections are still months away, Hillsborough Mayor Tom Stevens announced his decision to run for a fourth term Monday. Stevens has lived in Hillsborough for 14 years and wrote on his website that he sees serving as the towns mayor as a privilege. In his six years as mayor, Stevens and the residents of Hillsborough have implemented a vision that highlights small-town character, resident heritage and sustainable living. While Stevens letter announcing his decision to seek another term highlights successes like opening new parks and new businesses, he wrote that there are difficult decisions ahead. In these current times, our resources are strained, he wrote.

With a merger in the works for Orange Countys only mental healthcare management entity and a new Medicaid expansion bill on the table, local providers are hopeful statewide changes to mental healthcare will improve quality in the county as well. Earlier this year, the OPC Area Program which manages a network of publicly funded mental health, developmental disability and substance abuse services in Orange, Person and Chatham counties chose to merge with Piedmont Behavioral Healthcare after the Orange County organization fell below a newly issued minimum service population. Judy Truitt, area director of OPC, said PBH, which serves Cabarrus, Union, Davidson, Stanly and Rowan counties, has led North Carolina in using the Medicaid waiver. Truitt said the OPC board approved Monday implementing use of the waiver by April 2012. The waiver will bring state and Medicaid funding the two largest sources of revenue for many service providers under the control of one authority, she said. I think that everyone believes that managing all of those under one umbrella gives you the opportunity to be more creative, Truitt said. Karen Kincaid Dunn, executive director of Club Nova a mental healthcare provider in Carrboro said she hopes her group will benefit from the merger. We are fortunate that we have some very well-informed leadership, but there are clearly a lot of people out there who have not sought treatment for mental illness, she said. Bernadette Pelissier, chairwoman of the Orange County Board of Commissioners, said

mental health is a critical issue in the county. With the cuts weve been experiencing and are continuing to happen, people often cannot get the services they need in a timely fashion, she said. Pelissier said she hopes OPC will be able to increase the number and variety of services it offers, as PBH was able to do after it implemented the waiver. The Arc of North Carolina, a group that advocates and provides services for individuals with developmental and intellectual disabilities, originally opposed the merger. Robin Baker, executive director of the local chapter of the Arc of N.C., said the group was concerned with how the merger would affect services. Weve heard that people are concerned as far as not knowing what to expect with changes in services and if there would still be local decision making, he said. Baker said his organization does not expect to lose funding due to the merger and has withdrawn its opposition, but he is concerned about how the administration of OPC will change. The only thing we are worried about is that some of the personnel weve come to work with well will not be there, he said. Truitt said while some restructuring within the organization may occur, OPC will retain its local presence after the merger. For many people, the truth of the matter is they may not even notice the change, she said. The local presence will still be who the community participates with. Contact the City Editor at city

Social worker kicks off Legislators propose to alter voting rules before 2012 alderman campaign

Michelle Johnson starts every morning with a session of meditation on her kitchen floor. As a part-time yoga instructor and a full-time social worker, Johnson said practicing yoga while opening her private practice has enabled her to see people as holistic beings. It has completely transformed me physically, mentally, and emotionally, she said. We have to understand that our thoughts impact how we live, move and breathe. Now that her practice has taken off, Johnson is ready to accomplish a new goal: joining the Carrboro Board of Aldermen. Johnson, who announced her candidacy on Friday, said talks of opening a CVS Pharmacy down the street from her 302 Weaver St. office piqued her interest in becoming an alderman. I started attending hearings and noticed in the process that CVS has not been willing to cooperate with resident interests, she said. Residents want a walkable, bikeable mixed-use space there that really fits the downtown. Aside from downtown development, Johnson said she is also interested in promoting the local arts scene, human rights issues, and accessibility of services. What I understand is how power works and how systems work, she said. I can look at details and make a plan and think,

A flurry of efforts by Republican state legislators to alter voting procedures has been viewed by some as an assault on voting rights in the state. Several pieces of voting legislation have passed one chamber of the N.C. General Assembly and are being deliberated in committees. The bills would ban straightparty ticket voting on ballots, shorten the early voting period by one week and require a form of state-issued photo identification at polling places. The voter ID bill, also known as Restore Confidence in dth/Erin hull Government, has received the Michelle Johnson, a social worker, sits in her office in Carrboro.

in N.C. Youre more likely to be struck by lightning. But Susan Myrick, an elections analyst at the John W. Pope Civitas Institute, a conservative policy organization in the state, said voter fraud is not limited to cases that are reported. Fraud is supposed to be secretive, she said. Nobody really knows if there is voter impersonation fraud primarily because there are no specific rules against it. Critics of the Republicanbacked bill also say it is a thinlyveiled measure to ensure a Republican presidential candidate earns the states electoral votes in the 2012 election. President Barack Obama won the state by less than 15,000 votes in 2008. If the bill is signed into law, N.C. would become the eighth state in the country to require voters to provide a photo ID in order to cast a ballot. Damon Circosta, executive director of the N.C. Center for Voter Education, said the bill still needs a lot of work in committee if it will be successfully implemented before the 2012 elections. The $500,000 provisioned for voter education programs will be insufficient to properly inform voters about the changes, he said. Whenever you make a voting change of this magnitude and make no mistake, this is the single largest change of voting procedure in decades you need to let people know about it, he said.

Lawmakers at the N.C. General Assembly have proposed a number of bills that would affect voting in the state: H351: House bill titled Restore Confidence in Government would require a form of state-issued photo ID.

If you look at the number of voters and then look at the number of presidential votes, theres a significant drop, she said. Chris Mackey, press secretary for Gov. Bev Perdue, said the governor opposes efforts by legislators to limit voter accessibility. Mackey said Perdue would not comment on whether she would veto any of the bills because they are still in committee. Contact the State & National Editor at

theory, improvisation and small group play. Jazz, by tradition, is learned orally, Anderson said. Nowadays, thats changed a lot. Its important that students still get a chance to hear it. Traditionally, the main showcase of the jazz scene in Chapel Hill has been the Carolina Jazz Festival, run by professor Jim Ketch every February. Ketch said that despite the fact that Kenan Music Building does not have a finished concert hall the building offers a place for musicians to learn, grow and indulge.

Weve always wanted to do something like this, weve just never had the facilities, Ketch said. Anderson said students will receive instruction from a number of guest instructors with ties to the University. As the days come to a close, students and community members alike will get to enjoy the evening concerts. The inaugural concert will take place in Polk Place, as the musicians play on the steps of Wilson library. Though he wont be instructing, Chancellor Holden Thorp will serve as a guest bassist during the Monday night concert. Thorp

played with Ketch in one of the jazz combos in the 80s, prior to the offering of a course. Its a very creative idea that not only embraces this spark of innovation, but also engagement with the community, Thorp said. Im proud to be a part of it. Anderson and Ketch said they are looking forward to providing a local showcase of jazz talent, as well as giving the students a medium to show their progress. Ultimately, we all want to play, Anderson said. We love teaching and that goes hand-inhand with playing. Anderson said the concerts will

But students across the system might begin to feel the tangible effects of years of funding cuts as it takes longer to graduate with less financial aid funding available. Hannah Gage, chairwoman of the board, said cuts totaling more than $1 billion during the last five years have begun to take a toll on the system. What this board has to do now relates to the cumulative effect of four years of cuts because it is about the total effect, and I dont think that we can take a fifth year, she said. The board will meet again in August after the budget is final-

Polling, a Democratic polling company in Raleigh, found that Obamas approval rating among voters below the age of 30 in the state is 76 percent. Dustin Ingalls, assistant to the director of Public Policy Polling, said the youth vote could have an even larger impact in 2012 because of the evolving nature of the states population. The electorate itself is changing as more young people are moving into the state, he said. Then you will have a new crop of people who are 18 to 22, and they will likely be voting with the president as well. But the states economic woes including the nations 10th highest unemployment rate of 9.7 percent will also impact the election in 2012.

More than a year ago, when I was just beginning to work on the exhibition and thinking that a good print by Vogeler would fit in very well, a woman came in to Curators Clinic with a print that was an outstanding example of his work, Riggs said. Curators also provide advice on how to better preserve art and methods by which individuals can research the art on their own, Turner said. She said the curators do not assume any level of expertise on the part of the individuals. Turner said many patrons often bring in pieces of art that have been passed down through their family. (The clinic) is supposed to try to answer questions or show ways to answer questions, Turner said. Curators do not give estimates of any pieces value, Bowles said. They also dont set out to say who the artist of a particular piece is.

Man crashes on campus

By Lyle Kendrick
University Editor

Onlookers were treated to some action Tuesday at Memorial Hall, though no concert or play had been scheduled. And the activity did not take place on a stage, or even in the building. A man crashed his car into a guard post on Cameron Avenue in front of Memorial Hall at 3:44 p.m., according to a Department of Public Safety arrest report. George Foy, a 56-year-old man Contact the Arts Editor from Chapel Hill, was charged at with driving while impaired and

failure to reduce speed, the report states. Both charges are misdemeanors, said Randy Young, DPS spokesman. According to the arrest report, Foys blood alcohol level was .22. He admitted to having a few drinks, the report states. Young added that Foy was driving a 2011 four-door white Mercury Grand Marquis. He was taken to an Orange County magistrate before being driven home, the report states. Last month, a 60-year-old woman was driving on Rosemary Street when her car flipped on its

side, according to a Chapel Hill police report. She was charged with driving while impaired and texting while driving, the report stated. Young said driving while impaired leading to property damage is rare on campus, especially during the summer. He said this is more likely to happen during the academic year when there is a large-scale event being held on campus. Foys court date is Aug. 9, the report states. Contact the University Editor at

Yemen faces humanitarian crisis amid armed conflict
SANAA, Yemen (MCT) Even before demonstrators began demanding the resignation of President Ali Abdullah Saleh five months ago, Yemens future looked bleak. A third of its people couldnt be certain when theyd next eat. The oilfields that provide 70 percent of government revenues and more than 30 percent of the countrys economic activity were expected to go dry in 10 years. Experts even were betting that Sanaa would be the first world capital to run out of water. But now, with Saleh lying wounded in a hospital in Saudi Arabia after an assassination attempt, the political system paralyzed by armed conflict and disagreements about what should happen to his government, and economic activity grinding to a halt, the future may be now. While it may not be plainly visible yet, I would say that Yemen is on the edge of a humanitarian catastrophe, said Geert Cappelaere, the Yemen representative for UNICEF, the United Nations childrens aid agency.

new sunscreen labels will judge skin cancer prevention

LOS ANGELES (MCT) The Food and Drug Administration on Tuesday issued new guidelines for sunscreen labeling that will give consumers better information about the products effectiveness and that will, for the first time, allow labeling to claim that sunscreens protect against skin cancer and early skin aging. Products that are broad spectrum and have an SPF (sun protection factor) higher than 15 may be labeled to say that they reduce the risk of skin cancer.

ers, who traditionally have a big voice in whom the party nominates for president since they hold the first primary, are mostly still looking for a candidate they can passionately support. Monday nights debate didnt stop their search. While GOP loyalists and independents at restaurants and shopping centers Tuesday had warm praise for former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, and wanted to know more about Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann, they said the field remained wide open. The widespread reticence is somewhat unusual, even at this early stage of the campaign, because better-known candidates such as Romney tend to have devoted followings that stay with them for years. Romney governed neighboring Massachusetts from 2003 to 2007, and he has a home in Wolfeboro. He finished second to John McCain with 31.6 percent in the 2008 New Hampshire presidential primary. the Little Ice Age, in which temperatures were unusually low in Europe and elsewhere around the globe.

No. 6-nationally seeded Vanderbilt (52-10) will play No. 3-nationally seeded North Carolina in bracket 1 in the opening game of the 2011 College World Series. Vanderbilt is one of three Southeastern Conference teams that will compete to bring home the SECs third straight NCAA title. The Commodores swept Oregon State in the Nashville NCAA super regional to earn a spot in the College World Series for the first time in program history. Vanderbilt ties Virginia for the fewest losses of any team in the College World Series.

Florida will take on Texas for its first College World Series game. The No. 2-nationally seeded Gators (50-17) average more than 10 hits and six runs per game and will count on an explosive offense to carry them in the national championship hunt. Florida trailed Mississippi State in game three of the Gainesville NCAA super regional before Preston Tucker blasted a three-run homer in the seventh inning to take the lead. The 2011 berth marks the first time in school history Florida will appear in back-to-back College World Series.

There were quite a few bumps in the road for Texas (49-17) on the way to its 34th College World Series berth. The No. 7-nationally seeded Longhorns fell to Kent State 7-5 in the Austin NCAA regional before beating the Golden Flashes 5-0 in the regional championship. Texas trailed Arizona State 2-1 after four innings in a winnertake-all third super regional game, but outfielder Mark Paytons two-out RBI single gave the Longhorns the lead in the sixth inning. Texas is in the hunt for its sixth national championship.

lawmakers challenge end of nuclear waste storage plans

WASHINGTON, D.C. (MCT) Congressional Republicans on Tuesday challenged the Nuclear Regulatory Commissions inspector general over his finding last week that the NRCs chairman did nothing illegal in his role in ending plans for a dump for highly radioactive waste at Yucca Mountain in Nevada. Inspector General Hubert T. Bell said Tuesday that the chairman, Gregory Jaczko, had been wrong to mislead fellow commissioners. The drama over Jaczkos role is the latest twist in the repeatedly delayed search for a place to store nuclear waste safely for a million years. Highly radioactive waste has been building up in temporary storage at the nations nuclear power plants at a cost to taxpayers of more than $15 billion.

California (37-21) will open College World Series play Sunday against Virginia in bracket 2. The Golden Bears, who are making their first appearance in the College World Series since 1992, swept the Santa Clara NCAA super regional with 7-0 and 6-2 wins against Dallas Baptist. California was a No. 3 seed in the Houston NCAA regional, and topped Alcorn State, Baylor and No. 1-seeded Rice to advance. Due to budget cuts, Californias baseball program is in danger of being cut. Look for the Golden Bears to do what they can to go out with a bang in what could be their very last season.

texas a&m
Also in bracket 2, Texas A&M (47-20) will play defending national champion South Carolina in its first game of the College World Series. Texas A&M was blown up Sunday in the Tallahassee super regional when the Florida State Seminoles won 23-9. But Texas A&M responded with an 11-2 win against FSU the next day to book its ticket to Omaha. The Aggies will make their first College World Series appearance since 1999. The Aggies will likely lean on sophomore Tyler Naquin and his hot streak, as the outfielder leads the nation with 103 hits.

The Cavaliers (54-10) own the No. 1 national seed and have more wins than any team in the 2011 College World Series. With a team ERA of 2.27, the Cavaliers average the fewest number of earned runs in the nation. And much of that is due to pitcher Danny Hultzen. The left-hander was the No. 2 overall pick in the 2011 MLB draft, making the future Seattle Mariner the highest-ever Cavalier selected. Hultzens 1.49 ERA and Virginias fifth-ranked fielding percentage makes the Cavaliers defense nearly impenetrable.

south carolina
South Carolina beat UCLA in the 2010 College World Series final to win its first national championship, and the Gamecocks (50-14) will look to defend their title in their 10th trip to Omaha. USC swept Connecticut in the Columbia NCAA super regional, and is one of three teams in the College World Series with a perfect 5-0 record in NCAA tournament play. Junior pitcher Michael Roth can cool off just about any hot hitter with his 1.02 ERA the second best in the nation.

GOP budget irresponsible and reckless
TO THE EDITOR The DTH would be hardpressed to find a worse defender of the state GOPs efforts to dismantle public education in our state than Nate Harrison. Mr. Harrisons column from June 9 displays a disheartening deficit of knowledge and understanding concerning state politics and basic economic concepts. While a simple letter to the editor does not provide nearly enough space to respond to each individual fallacy and delusion, a response of some sort is certainly necessary. Mr. Harrisons letter echoes the same tired GOP talking points about the Laffer Curve and austerity, only in a less articulate and convincing manner. Someone should inform Mr. Harrison that Governor Perdues veto is not merely symbolic, as there is a significant chance that the Democratic caucus in the state House could sustain a veto. Budgeting is not in fact a zero-sum game. Investing now in education reaps multiplied benefits for years to come. Mr. Harrison claims that this budget should be passed for the sake of future generations, but he forgets that these are precisely the people that this budget hurts the most.

Think outside of the Triangle

n Monday afternoon, President Obama addressed employees of Cree Inc. as part of his visit bent on boosting the fledgling economic recovery. Now that candidate Obama is President Obama, winning my vote and others like mine will require more than just a reiteration of 2008 tactics. Needless to say, North Carolina is a key swing state in 2012. While the motives behind Obamas visit might be obvious, visits with an emphasis on the economy will be vital to his success in our state. N.C. is facing the 10th highest unemployment rate in the country. North Carolinians are suffering, despite the presidents constant reassurances that the economy will get better. As a rising senior, Id like to see some hope for employment for a graduate in political science who has no desire to work in technology, the focus of Obamas jobs initiative. The belief in hope and change worked for Obama in 2008, but the economy has created the need for more concrete results in 2012. If Democrats hope to keep N.C. blue, Obama must show that he can bring real economic growth home to voters. While the meeting on Monday looked great, Obama should focus not only on the states successes, but also those who might feel left behind. Perhaps the presidents best route is to ease off on the platitudes, recognize reality and take the political risk to visit with those who are not doing so well. With the recent influx of Democratic-leaning voters to the Research Triangle Park area, Obama has the Park locked up. Visiting unemployed textile factory workers who missed the boat on retraining will do more to win liberal voters, as well as independents than talking with those spared by the recession. While Obama courts the rest of North Carolina, he cannot afford to take those who have stood with him since the beginning for granted. This means the Obamaholics who inhabit the University. While I was a gungho Obama supporter three years ago, I have grown a bit jaded. I am still a Democrat, but I crave real solutions to the problems students face tuition hikes and crowded classrooms. Just because college students are Obamas bread and butter does not mean he can forget us. Incumbency has its advantages and disadvantages. While the lack-of-experience claim wont stick this time around, his record gives substance to what he has always been best at: speeches. And a good speech wont spark magic like it did last time. In 2008, I was a freshman with no immediate concern about the job market. But now, Im playing for keeps. So far, Obama has been polling more favorably than any potential GOP candidate in the Old North State. Choosing Charlotte as the site of the 2012 convention is a good first step toward keeping this lead. But to secure the state and my vote, Obama needs to put aside the manual and take unusual steps if he hopes to win in these unusual times.

We arent the problem

UNC students should get housing preference near campus
he Chapel Hill Town Council is poised to pass a temporary moratorium on development in two neighborhoods near campus. The ban is supposed to buy the planning board time to develop a strategy to protect the historically low-income and black Northside and Pine Knolls communities from further gentrification. The goal is noble, but the proposed moratorium is based on incorrect assumptions and would hurt those it seeks to protect. Chapel Hill must first admit students are not the problem. Students, in fact, have more in common with the Sustaining OurSelves Coalition, which petitioned for the freeze in March, than either group seems to realize. Families hate noise and college students hate noise complaints. And no one likes increased traffic or watching his or her rent go up. The town needs to actively engage students rather than avoid them. The proposal is open to public debate Monday, June 20, at 7 p.m., and the council is expected to enact the ban a week later. Railroading into law a regulation that affects students over summer break is a categorically bad start. Chapel Hill must next admit developers arent the problem.


John Hamlin

Editorial Board Member Senior journalism major from Raleigh Email:

The council members need to take a long, sobering gaze at the nation of dying downtowns and four years of housing market declines that surround it. Maybe then, the council will recognize how extravagant and arrogant it would be to gamble its economic growth on a social engineering experiment. The moratorium will fail to curb housing prices because it falsely assumes location means nothing in real estate. In other words, that students only want to live in Northside and Pine Knolls because developers built highoccupancy houses there. But thats exactly backward. College students in a college town expect to live within walking distance of their campus. Many parents are willing and able and agree to bankroll the Carolina experience for their children, no matter the price.

That well-moneyed student demand for downtown housing bred gentrification, not developers. Developers simply listened to the market, and the council has to recognize it cant legislate away the principles of economics. Against the best of intentions, the moratorium would raise rent and home prices by freezing development but not sales. Because it caps the space available, the price of existing homes would increase. And investors would know the ban expires Jan. 31, 2012, so they could snatch up homes now and remodel them later. Until fewer students want to live in these communities, the gentrification will never end. Chapel Hill must finally admit thats the problem. It may be unfair and its certainly challenging, but its the way our world works. The town also needs to support areas that already have mixed gentrification. It should expand programs like the Good Neighbor Initiative, which connects students already in these neighborhoods to the local community. Gentrification is urgent. It hits peoples homes and tears apart communities. Chapel Hill deserves a swift fix based not just on pity but reality.

Students represented at Chapel Hill Town Council

TO THE EDITOR I am pleased to report that, at Mondays Chapel Hill Town Council meeting, the Council members voted to have a UNC student sit on the Town of Chapel Hills Transportation Board. This is a significant step forward in a long-term collaboration with the town. The executive branch of student government is excited to continue working with the town on this and many other issues that affect UNC students on a daily basis. Transportation around campus and the Town of Chapel Hill is an incredibly important issue for all of us. Now, having a student representative means that our voice will be heard!

BOGged down


UNC should be able to raise tuition without BOG roadblocks.

embers of the UNCsystem Board of Governors convened last week to discuss the state legislatures proposal of a $407 million reduction in funding for the UNC system. But the BOG is overstepping its boundaries by discouraging any possibility of a supplemental tuition increase in order to mitigate a decrease in state funding. North Carolinas established commitment to higher education has been almost certainly undercut by the proposed budget that is poised to become law. Tuition hikes are the next logical step for larger universities to fill the void caused by the cuts. Board Chairwoman Hannah Gage has publicly stated that the Board of Governors is unwilling to consider the possibility of supplemental tuition increases at state schools because it could encourage the legislature to make deeper reductions in

education spending. The message that the BOG ought to be sending is one of cooperation during tough economic times. Tuition hikes are anything but ideal, but desperate times call for desperate measures. Jay Schalin of the John W. Pope Center for Higher Education Policy, based in North Carolina, has advised the system to analyze each campus individually when determining supplemental tuition increases. Indeed, some schools could be better-suited for tuition increases than others. UNC, for instance, is currently ranked in the bottom quartile for tuition rates among peer institutions, which include the University of Michigan, the University of Virginia and the University of Texas. Although it is a difficult pill to swallow, UNC would be a very viable candidate for tuition increases in our state. Pinpointing the schools where tuition increases are viable is the strategy that the BOG needs to be taking, rather than simply wagging

its fingers at the proposed Republican budget. It is of the utmost importance for our state to place a premium on higher education because it indicates a commitment to investing in our children and our future. Tuition is not and should not be the primary source of funding for higher education in our state. But tuition hikes at certain state schools that can afford it will not change this ideology. In the years to come, a higher percentage of the burden to attend school will befall the students and families who use them, rather than the already beleaguered taxpayers. While our legislators need to recognize the premium that has historically been placed on higher education, the BOG needs to open itself up to the possibility of supplemental tuition increases and recognize the dire financial straits that our state faces. The BOG is right to fight for everyday students to ensure that the UNC system remains the ultimate meritocracy, but not at the expense of financial solvency.
