Proposal puts tuition Board of Governors to toward faculty raises finalize tuition debate
Carney said professors are the lifeblood of the University system.
By C. Ryan Barber
Senior Writer

The letter seemed like all the others at first — nothing that merited anything beyond a quick glance. Nothing but another reference request or cattle call to join an administrative search. But this one was somehow different. Slowly it dawned on McKay Coble, chairwoman of the department of dramatic arts, that while she didn’t know the letter’s author, he knew her. She took a second glance, then a

third before turning the invitation down. Even with the prospect of higher pay and more responsibility. Even with the prospect of the first raises in three years, perhaps enough to cover her daughter’s inevitable tuition hike at UNC-CH. “It’s this really wacky position,” said Coble, a former chairwoman of the faculty. “I needed the raise so I could pay the raise in tuition.” Coble is not alone. Amid a three-year pay freeze, faculty find themselves in the “wacky position” of needing a raise to catch up with rising costs, a position that has made UNC-CH markedly more exposed to poaching efforts like the one Coble turned away. But the University hasn’t always been so lucky — and retaining top faculty hasn’t come without a cost.

In the 2010-11 fiscal year, 110 faculty received competing offers to work for other universities, the government or the private sector, a 26 percent increase from the 87 offers in 2009-10— and a 115 percent uptick from 2007-08, when only 51 received outside offers. Of the 110 outside offers last year, the University only retained 32 faculty members, or 29 percent, in spite of 52 counter offers. Today, the Board of Governors will deliberate whether part of that cost of retaining faculty should fall to the students, as it votes on UNC-system President Thomas Ross’ proposed 13.5 percent tuition hike for UNC-CH. At seven percentage points above the tradition-

Amid an array of conflicting opinions on tuition hikes — ranging from zero to doubledigit increases — the UNCsystem Board of Governors is expected to end a divisive tuition debate Friday. University administrators across the system submitted substantial tuition hike proposals to the board in December, including an 11.4 percent increase in tuition and fees for UNC-CH that sparked student protests.

UNC-system President Thomas Ross then released his proposal late last month, recommending an average increase of 8.8 percent systemwide for instate undergraduates. The board will hold committee meetings today before voting on the proposals Friday. Ross’ plan proposes a 9.9 percent increase for UNC-CH, one of 15 schools that proposed hikes above the board’s 6.5 percent cap. That cap was mandated in the board’s second Four-

Year Tuition Plan approved in 2010, but it also permits board members to approve higher increases if a campus demonstrates a need. Board Chairwoman Hannah Gage said this year’s tuition discussions have been unprecedented in terms of the diversity of opinions offered by board members. “This is the hardest tuition year we’ve ever had in the decade that I’ve been on this board,” Gage said. “It’s never been as difficult. We’ve never had as wide a spread on our board in what people thought we should do.” Ross informed board members in an email Tuesday about

Campus groups protesting on principle
Students deserve to be treated as stakeholders, group leaders said.
By Chelsea Bailey
Senior Writer

The swell of student opposition to proposed tuition hikes has been lead by four main organizations, each with different views of which tuition plan is best for the University and the student body. And though they can’t agree when it comes to dollars and percentages, in the end, their message is the same — students must have a greater say in tuition decisions. “We want to set a precedent for student involvement,” said Joseph Terrell, director of internal relations for the Campus Y. “Students have not been adequately included in the conversation — they’re not treated as stakeholders.” The UNC-system Board of

Governors will deliberate today and vote on tuition proposals Friday. UNC-system President Thomas Ross has proposed a 13.5 percent tuition increase for UNC-CH, smaller than the 15.6 percent increase proposed by Executive Vice Chancellor and Provost Bruce Carney. Kate Davis Jones, a member of the Education Justice Alliance, a coalition of organizations that formed in opposition to tuition hikes, echoed Terrell’s claims. “It’s about building more of a student voice within the conversation,” she said. “We want them to know that we’re listening and we’re not going to be passive as they pass these hikes,” Jones said. Since the fall, the tuition debate has divided campus organizations along many fronts. Student Body President Mary Cooper has said she supports Ross’ proposal to raise tuition and fees by 9.9 percent for instate undergraduates next year.

The Campus Y has said it will support the lowest tuition increase possible. Eric Bost, a member of Students for a Democratic Society, said his organization and the Education Justice Alliance both adopt a staunch stand against any tuition increases because they view the decision as a symptom of a greater problem. At times this division has juxtaposed students who pay tuition against students with academic scholarships. The two primary leaders in the Campus Y’s tuition movement — Terrell and sophomore Laura McCready — are Morehead-Cain Scholars, and therefore do not pay tuition. But far from creating a further rift between the organizations, members of different groups say their involvement shows how important the tuition decision is. “I think it’s great they’re involved,” Bost said. “This is about seeing this problem as a bigger picture. It’s about asking

the hard questions — is there money out there that isn’t going to higher education?” Lily Roberts, a MoreheadCain Scholar and senior advisor to Cooper, said she continues to speak out against tuition increases because she wants to give back to the people that helped shape her experience at UNC. “If I have the smallest chance to help taxpayers and their children, I think that would be the most important thing I can do coming out of my four years here,” she said. Roberts added that she hopes Cooper’s administration leaves behind a legacy of challenging the status quo. “Students are not just going to either buy something wholeheartedly, or yell no until they’re blue in the face,” she said. “It’s about saying, ‘Here are the values that are important to us and here’s how we see that happening.’” “The legislature cut the budget because of the economic crisis and now the school has to

respond,” he said. No matter the outcome Friday, each of the organizations’ leaders said they will continue to push for greater student involvement in the decision-making process. “I think all of us who are

involved recognize that it is an uphill battle,” she said. “But if we felt defeatist, we wouldn’t be fighting.” Contact the University Editor at university@dailytarheel.com.

CVS developers to build fence around site of protested building
By Jenny Surane
Staff Writer

Last week’s Carrboro Commune protests have caused a divide in the Carrboro community — literally. Representatives from CVS met Wednesday with neighbors of the proposed CVS building at 201 N. Greensboro St. to discuss the fate of the site after protesters set up an encampment Saturday in a vacant building on the property. In light of the breaking and entering and vandalism that accompanied the protest — which police dispersed after four hours — representatives said CVS has decided to construct a chain-link fence around the property. Leigh Polzella, the developer for the project, said she tried to prevent CVS from constructing the fence for fear that it would be an eyesore. “Initially, I decided not to put up a chain-link fence, because I thought it would be offensive to the town,” she said. After last week’s protests, the building has become

a liability for the company and the fence must be constructed, she said. “The installation date for the fence will be happening very quickly,” she said. Carrboro Commune protesters said earlier in the week that they would have representatives at the meeting to voice their concerns. However, no protesters made themselves known during the meeting. But Alanna Davis, who is involved with Carrboro Commune, said three protesters attended but didn’t bring banners because they didn’t want to disrupt the meeting. During the meeting, audience members discussed the specific layout of the building, which is currently designed to mimic the surrounding historical Carrboro homes. “We want the community to like the building since it is going to be there for a long time,” Polzella said. Although many residents said they would appreciate a more modern, progressive design, other audience members said they liked the historic look of the building.

“I’m glad that at least some thought was put into the flavor of Carrboro,” resident Debra Seaton said. Neighbors also heard from Mike Horn, a traffic engineer from Kimley-Horn and Associates, who announced the results of the traffic counts the company performed to assess the impact the store would have on nearby intersections. Horn said traffic added by other approved developments and the proposed CVS wouldn’t be heavy enough to require additional traffic lights. To accommodate any increased traffic, Horn said traffic lights at intersections would be synchronized and would begin to change faster. “The most impact our site would have on an intersection is a 3 percent increase in traffic,” he said. A public hearing scheduled for March 27 will be one of the final chances for residents to make suggestions to CVS and town officials, who will vote this spring on whether to allow the project.

UnC alum pens novels as ‘an entertainment’
Soap opera writer and author of ‘The Cloning’ said his goal is ‘to make people smile.’

Wisner Washam was walking across campus in 1952 when he noticed a sign tacked up on a tree — “Auditions for announcers for the new radio station.” Studying acting at UNC, Washam’s career path was about to change. “I went over there, put on my deepest voice and tried to speak like Charles Kuralt and got hired,” he said. Not only did Washam emulate Kuralt’s voice, but he worked with the legendary broadcaster, who was also a student at the time. The pair was part of the first FM-broadcasted show of W-UNC in 1952. “Stopping to read that notice on a tree really changed my life because it got me into the whole world of radio and writing,” he said. Washam went on to be the head writer for the ABC soap opera “All My Children.” After retiring from television in the early 1990s, he continued to write independently. His most recent novel, “The Cloning,” follows a young professor who attempts

to clone a fragment of DNA, thinking it is the DNA of Jesus. At UNC, Washam lived in the thendormitory Steele Building — conveniently near Historic Playmakers Theatre, where Washam took classes and worked with the Carolina Playmakers. This student and faculty group, a part of the Department of Dramatic Art, was prominent on campus from the 1920s until PlayMakers Repertory Company phased it out in the 1970s. After graduating from UNC in 1953, Washam spent time in France with the U.S. Army and studied acting in London. He returned to the U.S. in 1959 and went to New York City with only $200. He began work as a stage manager there. While working on playwright Neil Simon’s “Plaza Suite,” Washam met his future wife, actress Judith Barcroft. He understudied the groom, and she understudied the bride. “We fell in love backstage, got married and bought our first co-op. And she was pregnant when the show finally closed after 1,100 performances,” Washam said. Later, Barcroft — who was acting on “All My Children” — mentioned Washam’s

writing skill to the show’s creator. “I always thought he was such a good letter writer,” Barcroft said. “Those were the days before email. He used to write beautiful letters.” Washam began writing for the show regularly in 1971. He became head writer within five years and remained for almost 20, winning two Emmys. Lorraine Broderick was Washam’s assistant and eventually his co-head writer. She said Washam’s time was the heyday of “All My Children.” “He loves collaborating, so you feel that you’re in a place where any idea will be considered,” she said. When soap operas became less popular, Washam turned to writing independently. The idea for “The Cloning” came to him in a dream, he said. “This story was conceived before Dolly the sheep was ever cloned,” Washam said. “It was really an idea that was totally off the wall.” Washam submitted the screenplay to the Writers Guild of America East in 1996, and it won the contest that year. No one picked up the script, so Washam wrote the novel version, which was published last year. “This is not a great, profound work of literature,” he said. “It’s an entertainment. I like to make people smile.” Washam lives in Manhattan with

Sophomore wrestler and son of North Carolina wrestling head coach C.D. Mock was arrested early Wednesday morning on Franklin Street for fighting. UNC’s 157-pounder Corey Mock was charged with one count of simple affray and one count resisting arrest. Both are misdemeanors. A spokesperson for the wrestling team said Mock has been suspended indefinitely. Police responded to a 911 call regarding a large fight on the 100 block of Franklin Street near the Varsity Theatre around 2:40 a.m. Wednesday. Officers witnessed Mock throwing another indiCorey Mock, vidual to the a sophomore ground within wrestler at UNC, the skirmish, was arrested said Lt. Kevin on two misdeGunter of the meanors. Chapel Hill Police Department. Gunter said Mock then attempted to flee the scene on foot. “Officers did give chase, and they were able to take him into custody,” he said. Gunter said that two officers sustained minor injuries while attempting to take Mock into custody. Mock was the only individual arrested as a result of the incident. He was released on a written promise to appear in court. Mock was a four-time state champion at Chapel Hill High School and has been one of the Tar Heels’ strongest competitors in his season and a half at UNC. So far this season, Mock is 24-9, making his career record 60-26. Mock has been in and out of the top 20 in his weight class during his career and was one of just three Tar Heels to qualify for the NCAA tournament last season. Though he did not win the ACC championship in his freshman season, Mock has beaten the champion, Jesse Dong of Virginia Tech, and the runner-up, Kyle John of Maryland. He was ranked No. 17 before the dual match with N.C. State on Feb. 3, but he is currently unranked. Coach Mock said he would not comment on the incident until he had a chance to review all the facts. He did say that the team met on Wednesday and will be moving forward despite the absence of one of their best wrestlers. The Tar Heels are coming off their first dual win in seven matches and have completed the conference season. Beating N.C. State secured the team’s position in fourth place. The wrestling team still has four non-conference matches left before hosting the ACC Championship in Carmichael Auditorium March 3. Contact the Sports Editor at sports@dailytarheel.com.

Duke-UNC

The Daily Tar Heel

Rivers’ buzzer beater freezes Smith Center
By Kelly Parsons
Sports Editor

MEN’S BASKETBALL: DuKE 85, uNc 84

They knew exactly what was about to happen. With less than 14 seconds to go in the game, No. 10 Duke trailing No. 5 North Carolina by just two and the ball in Austin Rivers’ hands, Kendall Marshall predicted the next play as if he could read the freshman guard’s mind. But instead of stopping Rivers’ 3-point buzzer beater that would give the Blue Devils an 85-84 come-from-behind victory Wednesday at the Smith Center, all Marshall could do was sit back and watch it unfold.

“I think we all saw it coming,” Marshall said. “You could see the way he was setting it up. He wanted to take that three. After trailing for most of the first half, the Tar Heels led by double-digits for much of the second. But with just more than a minute to go in the game, a jumper from Duke forward Ryan Kelly pulled the Blue Devils within two. UNC forward Tyler Zeller made two of four free throws in the moments to follow, but with less than 14 seconds to go, Duke had the chance for one final shot. As the seconds ticked off, Duke forward Mason Plumlee set a screen, and Tyler Zeller took over

for Reggie Bullock in guarding Rivers. UNC took the bait. And in the end, it came back to bite them. “When you got a switch off and have Z guarding him, that’s a tough matchup for Z,” Marshall said. “I think he was more afraid of getting beat off the dribble.” Zeller, who led the Tar Heels with 19 points and eight rebounds in the first half, was quieter in the second, seemingly trading places with Barnes. Barnes, whose ankle had been bothering him all night, scored just six points in the first half – all from the free throw line. With his most dynamic scorer relatively invisible in the first half, Williams knew something had to change in the second. “The coaches told me if I didn’t want to play I’d have to sit on the bench,” Barnes said. “They gave me that ultimatum, and I tried to play harder.” Immediately after break, Barnes took advantage of his size to get to the basket and scored 11 of UNC’s first 16 points in the second half. Barnes hit the Tar Heels’ first

3-pointer of the night with 15:08 to go, and followed it with backto-back jumpers in a 26-second span to give the Tar Heels an 11-point lead. But in the end, it was all for naught. After sinking the shot as the buzzer sounded, the deafening silence of the Smith Center interrupted, Rivers then was dog piled on the corner of the court by his teammates. Without even taking the time to soak in the scene, the Tar Heels ran through the tunnel to the locker room, their faces overcome by a blank stare. Immediately after the game, the typically positive Barnes hadn’t quite figured out just what to make of the whole situation. “You go out there, you don’t play well in the first half, you play well in the second half, and then you blow a 10-point lead and lose on a last-second shot,” Barnes said. “What can be said about a game lost like that?” Contact the Sports Editor at sports@dailytarheel.com.

The Blue Devils shot 45 percent in the first half and made seven 3-pointers. Zeller made 7 of his 14 shots and hit 5-of-7 from the charity stripe. He grabbed four offensive rebounds. Zeller was relentless. But his value in that half can’t be measured statistically. UNC’s leading scorer Harrison Barnes looked slow and hobbled in the first half, and UNC wasn’t getting many looks from long range. Zeller was the offense. UNC seemed to acknowledge that, allowing the big man to take nearly half the team’s first-half shots. Duke knew it, but it couldn’t stop it. Zeller was in line to topple his career-high 32 points last season after that half, but he didn’t put up the same numbers after halftime. He got most of the attention in the second half, so the Tar Heels found other options.

be my valentine’s song?
By Allison Hussey
Diversions Assistant Editor

SOUR:

‘Crash the Party’ by OK Go
OK Go nails the Anti V-Day vibe on this track. “To hell with chocolates, and picnics and Sinatra tunes,” sings Damien Kulash. Like so many, he’s sick of the Valentine’s Day shenanigans, too.

Cheating is one of the best ways to break a heart. This track laments going away and expecting to come back to open arms — but instead being met with infidelity.

‘Song for the Dumped’ by Ben Folds Five
Sometimes we take the high road when relationships end and we act maturely. This is not a song for that. If you’re dumped and feeling bitter about it, let this one be your anthem.

‘Fight Test’ by The Flaming Lips
We’ve all got the “one who got away,” the one who we let slip by for whatever reason. Wayne Coyne sings about how yes, you can be too cool, and how you can end up being miserable because of it.

‘Somebody More Like You’ by Nickel Creek
This tune contains one of the best bitter lines around: “I hope you meet someone your height/So you can see eye to eye/With someone as small as you.” Ouch.

‘Friendly Fire’ by Sean Lennon
Lennon wrote this after his girlfriend cheated on him with his best friend, who died in a motorcycle crash before he and Lennon reconciled. This song is where the hurt comes to a head.

‘No Children’ by the Mountain Goats
John Darnielle revels in sincere snark through the whole song with lines like “I hope I lie/And tell everyone you were a good wife.” Buddy Guy may be well into his 70s, but he’s still plenty sassy. He adds injury to insult: “Get out, and let the doorknob hit you on the way.”

‘Let the Door Knob Hit Ya’ by Buddy Guy

‘Lament’ by Mount Moriah
‘Summ er Clothe time Anima s’ by l Colle ctive
There are times when the best thing for a relationship is for it to end, and there’s nothing to stop it from happening. Heather McEntire sums it up perfectly: “The heart can’t keep trying to love something it doesn’t.”

‘Darling’ by People Eating People
Bothered with someone who thinks they’re hot stuff but in actuality kind of sucks? Dedicate this tune to them.

‘First D ay of M y Li by Brig ht Eye fe’ s

y u’re M rd Yo ‘Baby by Richa ’ Light awley H

SWEET:
e’ by ‘Bold as Lov Jimi Hendrix
ou ope Y ’ ‘H Know aun gaf y Me b

‘The Temptation of Adam’ by Josh Ritter ’ by ‘Jungle Drum i rin Emiliana Tor ‘Lover’ by Devendra Banhart
‘Mirrorba ll’ by Elbow

‘Some thin Smile’ g in Your by D Gillesp izzy ie

1) Ritter’s songwriting shines with this tune that tells a tale of true love during the apocalypse. His story is poignant and sweet without being over-the-top. 2) Love can be scary, exhilarating and awesome all at once. It can bring out our brightest, our darkest and everything in between. But like a rainbow, all of the pieces together are what make it beautiful.

3) Long distance relationships are tough, but Megafaun’s got you covered. This soothing song is a reassurance that, no matter the distance, love will always find a way to stay. 4) On this track, Guy Garvey captures the “love of your life” sentiment. The gentle melody swells as Garvey croons exquisite lines about love and how beautiful it makes the world.

5) Catchy and cute, “Jungle Drum” is about that familiar heart pounding that comes with being in love. Torrini celebrates that crazy feeling with a quick beat and a rhythm section that skips along like a love-struck heart. 6) Hawley’s song serves as a good reminder — a long hug reminding you of the fact that love means having someone who takes you for your insecurities and all, no matter what.

7) It’s upbeat and happy, delivering a message of a simple but blissful love. You have that person you can do anything with, even if it’s just walking around the city at night. 8) “This is the first day of my life/I swear I was blind before I met you,” wails Conor Oberst on this indie rock staple. It’s all about opening yourself up and realizing how special someone is to you.

9) With that special someone, you inevitably find the little things about them that are totally irresistible. Gillespie jazzes up Tony Bennett’s original, making it the perfect tender slow-dance tune. 10) This one’s a good one if you’re all about the sentimental stuff but feel a little frisky, too. Banhart takes a sort-of subtle route here to make a song that’s fun and a little freaky.

Q&A with Sharon Van Etten
The word “tramp” has never been synonymous with beauty. But singer-songwriter Sharon Van Etten has turned the word around to title her newest record. With Tramp, Van Etten manages something beautiful. She explores intense personal territory with entrancing tunes, matching emotional lyrics with layers of instrumentation that create a thick, almost dream-like sonic atmosphere. She recently took the time to talk to assistant Diversions editor Allison Hussey about the new record, her time on the road and women in the music business.

DIVERSIONS: What would you say the biggest differences are between Tramp and your earlier material? SHARON VAN ETTEN: I think the content is a lot more confident, and I’m a lot more secure with who I am and what I’m doing. Also, I show a broader range of emotion, whereas before I only

She Keeps Bees — women that actually have really unique voices and are in really incredible bands that are doing something new and different that I feel like we haven’t seen in a really long time. And I feel like this is going to be a really powerful year for female-centered bands. Although I want to say it’s a boy’s club, I just feel like there just needs to be more encouragement for women and more support by critics and stop trying to make it about sexuality, because it’s really not about that at all in most cases.

DIVE: What is something that you think people should know about you or your music?

SVE: When I write, it comes from a therapeutic place. I write whenever I’m going through something intense, and whenever there’s something to share that’s general enough where I think people can grow from my experiences, then I turn it into a song. So it’s really like self therapy when I start writing, but it turns into a song when I feel like it’s more than that. Performing it is really like going through that all over again.

Spanish Language Immersion Program
I participated in the Spanish Language Immersion program to bolster my very basic Spanish language skills before I traveled to Guatemala. Focusing on language in one summer session gave me a strong foundation to live and intern in this Spanish-speaking country. The relationships I developed with the program’s teachers and graduate students are the best I have developed with Carolina faculty and administrators. I received one-on-one instruction and aid, essential to mastering a foreign language. I would absolutely recommend this program to any student who wants to learn Spanish in a nontraditional classroom environment. ~ Carey Averbook Junior Anthropology Major Double Minor in Drama and Sustainability Studies

Album from the Vaults:
Donald Fagen, Kamakiriad: Behind the snappy hi-hats, plucky synths and fat Walter Becker bass lines, there’s something wierdly sci-fi about 1993’s Kamakiriad. The album follows the owner of a brand new Kamakiri — a steam-powered, carbon-neutral car with a built-in hydroponic farm — driving around, sipping cocktails with swingers and listening to computer-generated music. I can only hope the future is this cheesy and bass-heavy.

Yandrew bucks indie trends
By Alex Dixon
Staff Writer

Saturday Fountains of Wayne, The Stars Explode Cat’s Cradle | Remember that song “Stacy’s Mom”? The band that wrote it, Fountains of Wayne, is back in the business and making a stop at the Cradle. But don’t expect the same sweet Top-40 pop-rock — the band has moved more in the direction of folk- and country-tinged rock ’n’ roll. It’s an unexpected transition to say the least, but that’s not to say it’s not a surprisingly decent one. Local pop rockers The Stars Explode open the show. 8/9 p.m., $20/23 WXYC Valentine’s Dance Party Nightlight | WXYC comes back with its annual Valentine’s Dance Party! It doesn’t matter if you’re single, with a significant other or have some kind of arrangement that falls in between. Nor does it matter if you’re convinced that Valentine’s Day is a Hallmark-manufactured holiday that’s hellbent on robbing you of your money or that it’s the most romantic holiday ever. Go out. Dance a lot. Act up. Have fun. 9/9:30 p.m., $5 Sunday Big Lebowski: The Musical Motorco | Someone apparently decided that the best way to make the Coen brothers’ cult comedy The Big Lebowski more awesome would be to make it a musical. It originally opened at the Nightlight in December, but is back for a twonight run in Durham. We’re not too sure what all it entails, but the combination of music and one of our favorite movies is pretty tempting. The Dive abides. 8 p.m., $10/12

YANDREW

Yan Westerlund and Andrew Anagnost practice their intricate style of music in a dusty, fluorescent-lit room, with a bass amp sitting on a rusty stool and baking pans rattling atop tom drumheads. Anagnost’s classical training is evident as he weaves through notes played in changing time signatures, tempos and dynamics, effortlessly switching between bowing and fingerpicking his cello. Westerlund picks up on every tempo change and swells with the sound of Anagnost’s cello, showcasing his expertise in jazz drumming. The Trekky House, on the border of Chapel Hill and Durham, is a communal practice space for friends and members of Trekky Records. On a typical weeknight at the house, standard outfit indie rock bands like the Embarrassing Fruits and Butterflies make use of the practice space’s guitar amps and microphones. “The average listener might be drawn to our performances because it’s something they haven’t seen before,” said Westerlund. Anagnost and Westerlund are the only members of Yandrew, a band that has no vocalist and no guitar player. This classical- and jazz-based instrumental outfit may seem alien to the Triangle’s indie rock scene, but Westerlund grew up listening to progressive music like this. “Minneapolis has plenty of the instrumental, jazz-oriented music and we’re kind of branching off that scene,” Westerlund said. Westerlund moved to Chapel Hill after his brother Joe Westerlund, of the widely successful folk freaks, Megafaun. When asked about a sibling rivalry between the brothers, Westerlund was quick to quell the notion. “Joe has been a huge influence and exposed me to music I never would have listened to,” Westerlund said. In any other setting, attending a concert that featured musicians with the expertise of Westerlund and Anagnost would make for a fancy Friday night. But the pair believes a Yandrew concert is as informal and accessible to the indie-rock crowd as the concerts of Megafaun and the likes of

Time: 9 p.m. tonight Location: The Nightlight 405 1/2 W. Rosemary St. Info: http://nightlightclub.com

Trekky Records. “You can go out on a Friday night, crack a beer, tap your foot and get in to it,” Anagnost said. Anagnost is a founding member of local band Lost in the Trees, which has experienced widespread success after a performance on NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert. Westerlund, after a stint with Lost in the Trees, now plays with the Raleigh-based folk band Bowerbirds, who have toured with the Mountain Goats. In their other bands, Anagnost and Westerlund agree their roles are largely contained to being “background musicians.” Overshadowed by the singersongwriter frontmen and cushioned during concerts by the many musicians onstage, they do not make the decisions in songwriting, touring and recording. “This is the first time we’re calling the shots,” Anagnost said. Anagnost, who graduated from UNC-Chapel Hill in 2008 and worked in various restaurants, now gives cello lessons. Westerlund used to teach music, but now works at Carolina Brewery. He especially looks forward to recording with Yandrew. “Working a day job makes you more ambitious,” he said. The duo’s real intention is to make Yandrew a full-time gig. “The goal is to be a middleclass musician,” Anagnost said. “If you can make as much as a public-school teacher and be playing music, that would be a wonderful thing.” Yandrew plans to record an album by the fall after they return from touring with their respective bands and play some more on their own. “The more we play them live, the more the songs will evolve and that’s when we should record them,” Anagnost said. “We’re doing the same thing Lost in the Trees did four years ago, just playing the local scene and hopefully we’ll get to play around the state,” Anagnost said.

Movie from the Vaults:
“And Now For Something Completely Different” This 1971 movie was basically a bunch of sketches from “Monty Python’s Flying Circus” re-taped and put together for an American audience — but you’ll hear no complaints about that here. Included are classic bits like “Lumberjack Song,”“Upper Class Twit of the Year” and “Hell’s Grannies.” It’s goofy and weird but spectacularly fun, something all of us could use more of from time to time.

Events:
Saturday Holy Ghost Tent Revival, Brave Baby Lincoln Theatre | Holy Ghost Tent Revival may be from Greensboro, but the Triangle is just about the band’s second home. Its wild energy and upbeat tunes are always worth seeing — and for under $10, you’re getting a great show for less than what it would cost to see a movie. And there are very few movies that could keep you as entertained as Holy Ghost Tent Revival. Trust us. 8/9 p.m., $7/9

DTH/JosepH CHapman Yandrew’s Yan Westerlund (top) and Andrew Anagnost (bottom) seem to have a lot of fun for classically trained musicians. In their roles with other area bands (including Lost in the Trees and Bowerbirds), Westerlund and Anagnost describe themselves as “background musicians,” where their input is largely limited to instrumentalism. In Yandrew, they’re the frontmen. Tonight, you can witness the duo’s musicianship at the Nightlight. If their peers’ success is any indication, it’s only a matter of time before Yandrew looks beyond the Triangle.

Tramp proves to be an epic
Sharon Van Etten’s latest muSic rEViEw is sweeping, stunning Tramp Van Etten Sharon and epic in its success. Rock
There are records that aim for the gut and make their mark. There are records that aim for the mind and make their mark. And then there are the very, very few that manage to hit both targets. Sharon Van Etten’s Tramp is one of these — the rare, exotic bird whose contents manage to land both the cerebral and the visceral with an almighty one-two punch. It’s hard to add up the effective components of something that ultimately feels as if it’s been imbued with a kind of magic, but it’s worth trying. The first, most arresting facet of Tramp is Van Etten’s voice, which retains the same ghostly, unassuming timbre it had on 2010’s Epic. Then, of course, there’s the songwriting. Lyrically, this album, like her others, pairs the distinctly commonplace with the unexpectedly profound. On “Serpents,” she sings, “You enjoy sucking on dreams, / so I will fall asleep with someone other than you.” It’s the absence of pretension and the abundance of clarity and relatability that make her words simmer there in your mind, stewing and recurring even after the album’s gone quiet. Melodically, too, Tramp is abundantly successful. Van Etten walks the sinew-thin line between simplicity and complexity. There isn’t a moment here where either grows disproportionate, and while there are earworm hooks whose

DIVESTAFF

STARS

Philadelphia’s Dr. Dog has been through the indie rock trenches, surviving for over a decade as a revolving cast of musicians, while somehow keeping a consistent sound and continuing to explore new sonic territory with each release. For its latest album, Be The Void, the band chose to return to its unpolished rock roots, giving the album a live feel through its lack of heavy production. The band also added multi-instrumentalist Dimitri Manos and percussionist Eric Slick to its lineup, so there’s the fresh feel of a band finding each other in the studio. The Beck-inspired “Lonesome” starts the album off in the right direction with its acoustic slide guitar, heavy beats and sing-along chorus. “That Old Black Hole” has trouble finding its footing, however, with spinning synths and bongos starting off the song before it meanders into a fastpaced country stomper. Most of the tracks on this album suffer from this identity crisis that’s first seen on “That Old Black Hole.” It’s great when a band can fuse two, or several, different styles together in one song, but the formula just doesn’t work throughout Be The Void. Dr. Dog does find a nice balance on “Heavy Light,” which descends into a piano breakdown before exploding into a multi-layered psychedelic treat, complete with sitar melodies competing with bent-note guitars. The band covers a lot of ground musically on this album and each track feels fresh and unique, but disconnected as a whole. Tracks such as “Lonesome,” and “How Long Must I Wait,” which really have their own identities, shine more so than the tracks that attempt to meander through several song styles. As with all of Dr. Dog’s records, there is great songwriting present, but it would have been nice if each track had a little bit more room to breathe. This band is a delight to see live, so hopefully it will take some more time with these tracks as it takes them to the stage. -Lucian Crockett

From Page One
The letter questioned Ross’ willingness to propose tuition increases above 6.5 percent and urged board members to press campuses to become more efficient. Growth in administrative spending has outpaced instructional spending at a majority of UNC-system schools in recent years, according to the letter, but Gage said schools have to balance operating more efficiently with providing quality services. A cut of 15.6 percent, or $414 million, in state funding last year prompted universities to eliminate about 3,000 filled positions and hundreds of course sections. “There’s that fine line between being truly efficient and then being so thinly staffed that you cannot deliver the kind of educational experience that students want and deserve,” Gage said. Once the board approves a set of tuition increases for campuses, the proposal will be sent to the N.C. General Assembly for final approval. Legislators have historically supported the board’s recommendations. Rep. Rick Glazier, D-Cumberland and a member of the N.C. House appropriations subcommittee on education, said he supports Ross’ tuition proposal. Legislators will convene for a short session in May to vote on the increases and other adjustments to the state budget. Glazier said the funding outlook for universities remains uncertain this year despite early estimates that the state will collect about $130 million more in revenue than projections for 2011. Multi-million dollar shortfalls for Medicaid and preschool funding could translate into more cuts for universities, he said. The Republican leadership also opted to sunset a temporary one-penny sales tax in last year’s budget that would have generated about $1 billion in revenue for the state. Democratic Gov. Bev

The Daily Tar Heel
Perdue has proposed reinstating three-quarters of that sales tax to mitigate education cuts. N.C. Sen. Richard Stevens, R-Wake and co-chairman of the Senate appropriations committee, said that while he hopes to restore some funding to universities in upcoming budgetary negotiations, the legislature’s majority will likely not seek to raise taxes if the state’s unemployment rate remains as high as 9.9 percent. “I don’t anticipate tax increases during an economic downturn,” he said.

universities as well. As several administrators acknowledged, no one has been quite as aggressive as the University of Michigan, which endured similar financial duress only a few years ago to emerge with more of a “stateassisted model” than a state-supported model, granting it more flexibility, said history department chairman Lloyd Kramer. “The word is out that times are tough. They’re on the prowl,” said Coble, who’s currently fending off Michigan’s attempts to woo a member of her department. International universities have also stepped up their efforts. Between April 2010 and May 2011, three professors left for universities overseas. “We’re very well-regarded in the international rankings,” Carney said. “That’s a source of pride, but it also paints a big bull’s-eye on us.” lab start-up costs to do so.

al cap, Ross’ figure marks the new point of last resort for a University enlisting its students — and $7 million from their tuition revenue — to fend off competing offers to faculty. How substantial or merely symbolic those raises turn out to be is for the deans and department chairmen to decide, said Executive Vice Chancellor and Provost Bruce Carney, who will give them the leeway to restore instructional losses and provide merit-based raises as they see fit. “I’d like to show them that we have turned a corner,” he said. That will be possible only if the state legislature agrees to grant the UNC system an exception to the pay freeze, which academics regard as sound educational and economic policy. Retaining new faculty members, administrators said, is more cost-effective than hiring new ones — though it remains unclear whether legislators will agree. “If we don’t get the pay raise, we’ll continue to work on the instructional side and the Academic Plan,” Carney said. “But I want, damn it, I want the pay raise.”

Holding on
Together, the tuition proposals offered by Carney and Ross underscore a balancing act between maintaining access to higher education and upholding the academic quality that attracts students in the first place. To that end, Carney frequently turned to low faculty morale and the need to raise salaries during the tenuous tuition debate last fall. He cited top professors as the lifeblood of campus, the ones who draw

students — and the ones UNC-CH has been hemorrhaging of late. In addition to the counteroffers, 48 preemptive offers were made to retain faculty members who did not have an outside offer in hand, but who were judged by their dean to be at risk for outside recruitment. “Once the offer is in their hand, the chances of them going is not low,” said Dr. Ron Strauss, executive vice provost. “That’s when we say, ‘Please don’t get on the airplane.’” To make those counter or preemptive offers, schools and departments have looked to the endowment, trust funds and overhead funds, along with a UNCsystem faculty recruitment and retention fund. Since 2006, the system’s campuses have tapped into that fund for nearly $10 million worth of hiring and retaining prized faculty, $1.7 million of which has been spent in Chapel Hill. “I scarfed that up,” Carney said. That fund has been drained to $38,071, said Charlie Perusse, vice president for finance for the UNC system, though administrators hope to replenish it with $5 million from tuition. Faculty are entertaining offers not only from deep-pocketed private schools, but from rival public

‘A double hit’
Last summer, Barbara Rimer found herself alone in a room with more than 30 of her fellow deans. As dean of the UNC Gillings School of Global Public Health, Rimer was in Montreal for the Association of Schools of Public Health’s annual deans’ retreat when someone asked the question: Who isn’t giving pay raises this year? Rimer’s hand was the only one that shot up. “I think it really puts us at risk,” she said. “It sends a message to other schools of public health: Come steal our faculty.” Many of those vulnerable faculty include principal investigators whose salaries derive mostly from research grants. Oftentimes, the grants allow for a raise — but the state’s pay freeze has prevented them from taking it. “It’s infuriating, totally infuriating,” Strauss said. “We want to let them use the raises written into their grant budgets.” When the researchers leave UNC with their grants in tow, Rimer said it’s a “double hit” because the schools lack the funds to hire a replacement. And when UNC does recruit a high-caliber researcher, it often takes as much as $500,000 in

“Hey I live next to a dookie. He’s a nice guy. But I hate dook. I hate all things dook. Dookies are everything that is wrong about America. If my kid went to dook I would disown them.”
TxTarheel, on the Duke-UNC basketball rivalry

College kids and trendy candidates
ou want my vote for president? Show me a political platform. Amid growing election buzz, it’s easy for students to get behind a trendy candidate without understanding the ins and outs of his platform. Of course, educated voting is vital to any healthy political system. But it’s especially crucial for young people to be informed, given the outsize influence of the youth vote in the national political dialogue. I’ll admit, I’ve put two Obama stickers on my car with only a vague idea of his economic, domestic and foreign policies. Most of my initial political opinions came from my left-leaning parents, especially my mother, who likes to yell obscene things at Republican politicians on television. Luckily, I happen to agree with most of Obama’s policies. But after watching this year’s Republican debates, I realized how little I knew about his potential opponents. So I set out to figure out who these guys are and what they believe in. As students, we have access to limitless information and incredibly diverse opinions. It is our civic responsibility to educate ourselves, regardless of whom we support. Of course, young people’s tendency to blindly support a candidate isn’t limited to Democrats. In Iowa, Ron Paul swept the youth vote, claiming support from 48 percent of voters ages 18 to 29. To put it in perspective, the next runner-up, Rick Santorum, only got 23 percent of this demographic. At UNC, I’ve spoken with several students who say they’d support him in a Republican primary. Now, I’m not here to support or refute those who would vote for Paul. But I believe he is a candidate whose actual platforms are too often drowned out by cries of “Ron Paul’s my homeboy!” Young people tend to support Paul because he says he would bring greater individual liberty to Americans. He plans to de-regulate many federal agencies, leaving states to set their own policies. This manifests itself in almost every aspect of Paul’s platform, and I certainly can’t take every issue on in the space of this column. But I ask my peers to think seriously about the effects this de-regulation would have on some of the policies they may take for granted, but nonetheless are impacted by every single day. I, for one, take comfort in knowing that my cheeseburger from Buns doesn’t have mad cow disease. Clearly, the effects of Paul’s policies would be more radical than just legalizing marijuana. To take another example, look at how Paul advocates home schooling rather than public education. He’s so busy talking about the tax dollars we’d save that he forgets to mention the detrimental effects this would have on public universities (like the one we attend here in Chapel Hill). Regardless of what some cynics may say, students hold significant power in deciding how this country runs and who runs it. But our votes are wasted if we don’t really know who our candidates are and why we’re voting for them. I challenge students in the UNC community — and myself — to take a study break and catch up on the candidates and the issues. It’s important not just for this next election, but for how this country functions as a liberal democracy.

Duke-hating in the DTH crosses the line
TO THE EDITOR: Really, Mr. Tucker? Really, UNC? A hate movement? Yes, because that’s truly the “American” way. I can’t see how this is any different from how Hitler rallied the world into hating the Jews. I am grieved and ashamed to see such powerful words like “hate” circulating around UNC in fliers and in the newspaper, and getting away with it ’neath the mask of “just a game.” Let’s not flatter ourselves with such sense when we cannot even sense the strong, abusive use of the word ‘hate’. There is nothing effective in hate movements and nothing admirable in resorting to fallacies of ad hominem abusive strategies — name-calling. You’ve only brought shame upon your own head in publicizing this article and movement, and I would like to declare that you do not represent the true Carolina spirit or way. Go Heels — go for reals!

uCS finding proper role in entrepreneurship
In response to Eshe Nelson’s piece titled “Generation Z brings entrepreneurship to the fore,” I’d like to clarify the role University Career Services plays in the UNC-ecosystem related to entrepreneurship. Our mission is to help students clarify and attain their goals, and we work with students who are trying to determine if entrepreneurship is the right path for them. We have hundreds of these conversations each semester. Our office also contributes to campus entrepreneurship through H4 and through support of the Chancellor’s Student Innovation Team and Carolina Creates (of which I am the staff adviser). The one quote Nelson used from our twenty-minute conversation referred to our office’s desire to not duplicate and compete with existing entrepreneurship education available through various sources here on campus like the entrepreneurship minor, the Center for Entrepreneurial Studies, etc. Like many offices on campus, we are actively working to find a role that will allow us to best engage with the entrepreneurial goals of students. There are very positive things on the horizon for both our office and the greater University, and we’re excited to be part of it. Gary Miller Assistant Director University Career Services

A crossroads for the BOG
he UNC-system Board of Governors should approve President Thomas Ross’ tuition plan at its meetings today and Friday. Though this year’s tuition decision-making process has been far from ideal, Ross’ plan is the best (and perhaps only) option on the table right now, and the BOG should pass it. After these hikes, however, the BOG must undertake a serious review of its responses to budget cuts and come up with a better solution than simply raising tuition in proportion to the amount the legislature cuts the budget. Under Ross’ plan, in-state students would face a 9.9 percent increase in tuition and

fees, and out-of-state students would face a 6 percent hike. Right now, this is the only reasonable way to offset the effects of last year’s $414 million budget cut and preserve educational quality at UNC. But an across-the-board tuition increase is just about the least innovative, narrowest solution conceivable. Our university can do better. The BOG needs to ask tough questions about how best to survive and thrive in this economy, and it needs to be prepared to act on the answers, regardless of how unpalatable they may be. Incremental hikes cannot be used, year after year, to stave off the effects of budget cuts. When it comes to tuition, students deserve predictability. The economic and political landscape of the state of North Carolina has undergone a fundamental change in recent

years, and the UNC system needs to undertake an equally broad assessment of the ways it will cope with an anti-education legislature. This may sound obvious, but if education isn’t really a priority for the organization tasked with allocating education funding, the schools are going to have to pick up the slack. But students shouldn’t have to bear the brunt of funding cuts. We’ve endured progressively higher tuition and lesser quality for too long. UNC cannot keep living hand-to-mouth, responding to each successive blow from the state legislature with equally unpredictable hikes to tuition. The University’s leaders should be considering the complex yet basic question of whether the current model is working. To us, it seems clear that it is broken.

More time needed to plan Chapel Hill 2020
TO THE EDITOR: Last week’s editorial “Chapel Hill 2020, this decade: Petition to delay development plan’s release is misguided” seems to have an unclear understanding of the petition it criticizes and the process it praises. The editorial suggests that more conversations between residents will be fruitless. I wonder if any of the writers of the piece have actually been to a Chapel Hill 2020 even thus far. If they had, they would have seen the wonderful discussions taking place about the future of our community and the range of complex issues that need more time to be ironed out. Public discussions around issues as complex as those being considered in the Chapel Hill 2020 process are naturally difficult. But good leadership and facilitation can keep participants on track and make the final plan much better. Those who signed the petition — including me — believe that extending the plan deadline is a necessary first step in improving the process and the plan, and making up for current inadequacies. The editorial argues that a strict deadline will force the plan’s contributors to “make comprises, reconcile differences and produce results.” Planning does require compromise, but those compromises need to be carefully considered so that everyone’s needs are adequately addressed. Rushing the plan would lead to hasty decisions, eroding quality of life here. What’s more, it’s unheard of for plans to be developed in less than a year. Good planning is, at its core, thoughtful and inclusive. The process hasn’t been thus far, so we need more time to get it right. Jeff Miles ’12 Journalism and Geography

Athletes should be able to enter regular lottery
TO THE EDITOR: I am writing on behalf of all junior, sophomore and freshmen Tar Heel athletes, or at the very least, the ones on the varsity women’s rowing team. Yes, athletes get the divine privilege to enter into a separate, more exclusive lottery for men’s basketball tickets. We all appreciate that we seem to have better odds of getting tickets and that we don’t have to mess around with phases and showing up to games early just to sit in a seat that was specifically allotted to us. We get this treatment even when applying for Duke tickets, or so we thought. The student athlete lottery was supposed to open Feb. 7 at 10 p.m. Naturally, we were eagerly awaiting sign-ups that day. Then, we all received an email telling us there weren’t any tickets left to the game. Could this be because every other non-senior on campus was able to sign up for a ticket through the regular student lottery nearly two weeks ago? If I’d been able to enter the regular student lottery and lost, I would be bitter about it, but at least it would have been fair. My request is for the Athletic Department to allow athletes to submit into the regular lottery. Why would there be tickets left unclaimed less than a day before the Duke game? Please, let’s be more realistic in the Duke ticket allotment schedule. Alexandra Davis ’14 Political Science

uNc college Republicans are shelling out $9,999 to bring the Republican also-ran to campus. Cain may be infamous for his 9-9-9 tax plan, but what we’re curious about are his tuition ideas. The 9-9 plan perhaps?

Duke commercial
The Duke commercial shown during halftime confirmed every stereotype about the school: self-important, contrived and generally icky. Who practices violin in a room where a ballet class is being held?

Coed housing nixed
This is really silly. It’s hard to imagine who could possibly object to gender-neutral housing, since the only people it would affect are those whom it would help. uNc needs to get with the times.

We’re really sorry about this, but newspapers have rivals, too. We lost a bet to The Chronicle, the rag of a paper at the school down the road. Shield your eyes.
