Bluegrass music and the scent of shrimp and grits filled a crowded Carolina Inn ballroom Saturday as chefs from seven Chapel Hill and Carrboro restaurants competed to prepare the best version of the signature Southern dish. More than 250 people came

to the first ever Shrimp ‘n’ Grits Throwdown, which the Carolina Inn hosted in partnership with TABLE, a nonprofit organization that provides hunger relief to children in Chapel Hill and Carrboro. The hotel will donate $2,000 of the money raised to TABLE. “We wanted to bring the Chapel Hill-Carrboro foodie community together for a fun throwdown and competition,” said Carolina Inn spokeswoman Michelle Voelpel. “And we really wanted to show our support for TABLE.” Voelpel said the event sold out two weeks ago and was more successful

The participating restaurants were Tyler’s Restaurant and Tap Room, Top of the Hill, Glasshalfull, Elaine’s on Franklin, Vimala’s Curry Blossom Cafe, Carolina Crossroads Restaurant and Bar, and Il Palio. Joyce Fink, TABLE community relations coordinator, said she is appreciative to the Carolina Inn and the restaurants for their support. “We are always looking for new and creative ways to raise food and money to help the kids in the program,” Fink said. TABLE feeds more than 130 elementary school children each week.

An attempt by the UNC-system Board of Governors to give tax breaks to families who pay college tuition but don’t qualify for needbased aid might not be feasible. A proposal was made at the board’s February meeting to research a tax break option, which would have to go through an adjustment of state and federal tax codes to be viable. It is also unclear if the tax break option would save families as much as hoped, said board member Jim Deal, who also works as a tax lawyer in Boone. “At the highest level of tuition increases, which is around $600, it might save the people who qualify $30 or $40,” Deal said. After the board approved an unprecedented tuition increase — as high as $695 for in-state undergraduates at UNC-CH — several members said they don’t agree with the system’s tuition policy that requires UNC-system schools to allocate at least 25 percent of the revenue from tuition increases to need-based financial aid. At the meeting, board member Fred Mills suggested that the amount of tuition going to need-based student aid should be deductible from the taxes of those who paid tuition and got no need-based aid. The board, with many mem-

E∞ciency a goal of new honor head
Grayson plans to focus on faculty relationships, outreach and education.
By Caitlin McCabe
Senior Writer

The legitimacy of the University’s student-run honor system has been in the campus spotlight for months, highlighting the perception that it is isolated from faculty and the student body. But the system’s new leader said she is committed to turning that around. In the week since her Feb. 19 selection, Amanda Claire Grayson has been ironing out her plans to implement her vision for the changing system. Among these plans are a focus on outreach and education, support for the adoption of the plagiarism detection software Turnitin and improving relationships with faculty. “It’s an interesting time to be coming in as the new attorney general,” said Grayson, who will be inaugurated April 3. “Our honor system may be going under a lot of changes, and I’m excited to be a part of that.” After it was found last summer that the honor system had not detected plagiarism in a paper by former defensive end Michael McAdoo, Chancellor Holden

Thorp initiated broad reform of the system. Since then, a faculty advisory committee and task force have been created, and the University has purchased a pilot version of Turnitin. In that context, Grayson said her overarching goal is the creation of a more efficiently run honor system, starting with a focus on outreach and education. “I want to make students and faculty more aware of what their responsibilities are for obeying the Honor Code and upholding the Carolina Way,” she said. Grayson said she plans to create videos to teach faculty how to report and detect violations and to develop an honor system quiz for students to take before class registration. The issue of faculty trust in the honor system has loomed large since the fall. Grayson said she plans to build faculty confidence by

The future of public transportation in Chapel Hill is in transit, and money is at the core of the issue. The town lacks money to solve its short-term transportation problems and must balance stagnant revenues with growing ridership and increasing costs, all while trying to maintain affordability. Meanwhile, town leaders are engaged in discussions about the future of the town’s bus system and a proposed light rail line, which would connect Durham and Chapel Hill and — officials hope — eventually combat the system’s rising operation costs. Residents in Chapel Hill and Durham rely on public transportation more than any other metropolitan area in the state, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. This ranks as the 39th most public transportation dependent region, with more than 9,000 workers using buses to commute.

During the next three years, Chapel Hill Transit will work with town and regional transit staff to make upgrades to bus service and infrastructure because of increasing demand. The town hopes to join regional partners to build a more costly proposed light rail line would connect Durham and Chapel Hill that is scheduled to open in 2025. But for it to be built, voters would have to approve a half-cent sales tax, which could be on the Orange County ballot this November. Durham County has already passed the tax, which won’t take

orkplace arguments can be tough — things get said, people get offended, maybe the occasional door gets slammed in someone’s face. But we can honestly say we’ve never heard of one leading to a pseudo-exorcism. Until now. Employees at the Children’s Board of Hillsborough County in Tampa, Fla., arrived at work one day in January to find an oily substance smeared over their desks. The substance was “holy oil,” which was placed by an unnamed religious woman after another employee decided to bless the building following a nasty board meeting. This kind of blessing is usually performed to ward off demons. We’re trying this at the DTH office next week. We can’t wait to see which of our demonic co-workers mysteriously stop coming to work.

His quote “We’ve felt the effects of the recession” reflected the way he sees how the foundation assesses some student proposals.

Although these changes affected the timing of his plans, Earnhardt is still taking time off, which he said is for personal reasons.

Cost of ASG trip sparks debate
Some complained that the $1,300 lobbying trip was a poor use of funds.
By Madeline Will
Assistant State & National Editor

GREENSBORO — Following four months of planning, the Association of Student Governments is sending nine students to lobby at the nation’s capital this week. Students from across the state, with three ASG officers, will travel to Washington, D.C. today to advocate for higher education spending in a three-day trip that will cost $1,300. The students, who were nominated by student body presidents, will meet with legislators

that represent federal districts in North Carolina — including U.S. Sen. Kay Hagan and U.S. Rep. David Price. “We wanted to be able to cover as many congressional districts with as few people as possible,” said Christine Hajdin, vice president of ASG’s legislative and public affairs committee. “We essentially wanted to blanket the state.” ASG President Atul Bhula is traveling to the capital, along with six students. They will meet with national student organizations to build ties, Hajdin said. This trip, and another proposed trip to Raleigh, sparked debate at the association’s meeting at N.C. Agricultural & Technical University on Saturday. Members of ASG complained about miscommunication

between committees. “Communication has been a running theme this year,” said Lauren Estes, student body president of Appalachian State University, at the meeting. She said the agenda for the federal lobbying trip wasn’t released until early last week. Hajdin said communication broke down when committee members didn’t receive emails about the trip’s planning. “It was able to be worked out, and it won’t happen again in the future,” she said. The association will also allocate $500 per campus to spend on posters and videos to advocate against state budget cuts. The group had been considering a student advocacy week in Raleigh to lobby state legislators. “One of the things that critics

of ASG say is that ASG doesn’t do enough,” Bhula said at the meeting. “And this is one of those avenues for us.” But ASG members turned down the idea, saying the trip might be ineffective. Members expressed concern that the trip would happen during a student body president turnover and relationships with legislators would not be as strong. Hajdin and other members have since been planning to bring legislators to each campus, which Hajdin said will be cheaper and more effective because more students can be involved. She said a student advocacy trip to Raleigh is still in the cards for next year, when the legislature will be in long session. Christopher McDonald, ASG’s chief financial officer, said at

the meeting that the association has $127,156 left in funds, after spending 43 percent of its $221,727 recurring budget on stipends, travel and campus innovation grants. The association, funded by $1 from each student in the UNC system, gives a maximum of $1,000 to selected campuses that apply for grants. After giving out more than $5,000 in campus innovation grant money this year, the association has about $11,800 left. This weekend, UNCPembroke received a $1,000 grant to fund its annual etiquette dinner. ASU received two smaller grants to increase library hours and promote student elections.

FLO pushes for ‘real

food’
By Katie Quine
Staff Writer

Student group FLO asks UNC to make 20 percent of its food fair by 2020.
UNC students could see changes to their dinner plates in the coming years if Chancellor Holden Thorp chooses to endorse a proposal presented to him today. But the standards used to reform food options offered by Carolina Dining Services differ between that department and the student group pushing for the changes. The student group FLO (Fair, Local, Organic) Food is asking Thorp to commit UNC to making at least 20 percent of all food served in the dining halls “real food” by 2020. If Thorp signs on along with a member of Carolina Dining Services, then UNC will officially become a part of the Real Food Challenge, which considers food “real” if it is ecologically sound, humane, fair and communitybased. These factors are measured by the “Real Food Calculator,” which is still in development, said Suzanne Fleishman, a member of FLO. Carolina Dining Services considers food “real” if it is produced within 250 miles of campus, qualifying 30 percent of its food as “real.” According to FLO, which uses national guidelines, only 10 to 12 percent is “real.” Mike Freeman, director of auxiliary services, said the department doesn’t know the specific criteria used by the national movement and therefore can’t account for the difference. “We asked what the criteria is, and we’ve been told we’re not supposed to have it. We’re not supposed to get it,” Freeman said. “It’s hard to commit to something when we haven’t seen the full criteria.” Fleishman said Carolina Dining Services received a working copy of the calculator, but all criteria for “real food” will not be released until the calculator is finalized within the next few months. She added that the department has already been working with FLO, which helped provide options like cage-free eggs. Freeman said paying for local and organic food can be more expensive, and that cost is a factor in approving the proposal. “We are stewards to also try to hold down the cost, and that’s been a challenge.” Sarah Acuff, another member of FLO, said committing to the 20 percent proposal would help the University’s reputation as an innovative school, and also help FLO bring more “real food” to campus. “Thorp seems to be very personally in favor of supporting the efforts and the ethics behind it,” she said. “Even if this doesn’t happen in the next few months or the semester, we’re not going to stop our efforts.” Contact the University Editor at university@dailytarheel.com.

A tree OF triumph

dtH/Melissa key Chapel Hill town economic developer Dwight Bassett created the “championship tree,” a now-removed carving that commemorated UNC’s 2009 NCAA basketball championship.

National Championship tree removed, replaced because of decay
By Cassandra Perkins
Staff Writer

After 45,000 Tar Heel fans and students rushed Franklin Street to celebrate UNC’s NCAA Championship in 2009, a toppled tree lay on the corner of Franklin and Columbia streets. For three years, the tree — which was made into a sculpture of a hand holding a basketball — has served as a monument to UNC’s victory that day. But Tuesday, the “championship tree,” as it has become known, was removed from the corner because decay had overtaken it. “I was up on the roof at Spanky’s that night, and there were five or six guys on that tree, and I knew it was doomed,” said Greg Overbeck, co-owner of Spanky’s Restaurant & Bar, which is located on the same corner as the sculpture. “I always wondered how long the sculpture would last.” Dwight Bassett, Chapel Hill’s economic development officer, said he was asked to sculpt the piece in an effort to save the tree. “I probably worked on it a couple days a week for probably three weeks that summer,” he said. “I’ve been doing woodworking for probably 25 years. It’s always been an avocation of mine.” Due to the nature of wood, Bassett said the sculpture was never supposed to be permanent. “I was actually surprised that it had lasted this long. When I did the work, I had never guessed that it would

last a couple of years,” he said. “It was sad on one hand to see it go because I remember the intense labor that went into it.” Bassett said he designed the sculpture as an arm outstretched and holding a basketball because the tree’s remnants stood vertically. The town planted a new tree in its place and plans to preserve the sculpture to make it available to the public in the future. Though Overbeck thought the sculpture was interesting, he said he is happy that a new tree has been planted in its place, softening the look of the corner. “We’re really happy that the town was proactive about taking care of the problem, and though we’re sad to see it go we’re happy that the new tree will make the street corner look a little nicer.” Freshman Jenna Marvin said she was sad to see the sculpture go and hopes that it will be preserved. “The new tree fits in well but the cool thing about the sculpture was that it didn’t fit in, and I think that’s why everyone liked it so much,” she said. “If there’s a way to preserve and make it available to the people, I think that should be done because it’s a part of our history now.” Bassett said the sculpture is in the process of being dried and preserved, and that the town is looking for a way to reuse it as a piece of public art.

‘henry V’ to be staged at Shakespeare festival
PlayMakers’ Chambers and Haj will produce the play in Oregon.
By Carson Blackwelder
Staff Writer

After spending more than a year with Prince Hal and the “Henry” plays, neither Joseph Haj nor Jan Chambers is tired of them. “It has been all Henry all year long,” said Chambers. “But I’ve really enjoyed it.” Haj, producing artistic director for PlayMakers Repertory Company, and Chambers, a PlayMakers’ scenic designer, will work with the Oregon Shakespeare Festival this summer to produce a whole new “Henry V.” While at PlayMakers, “The Making of a King” production reached about 96 percent of projected ticket sales, with 12,503 tickets sold or provided, according to Hannah Grannemann, managing director at PlayMakers. For the past two summers,

the Oregon Shakespeare Festival — which has a staff of 600 and an operating budget of $30 million — has put on both parts of “Henry IV” and is set to debut the final part of Hal’s trilogy. “We have known Joe for a number of years and we believe that he has the right passion and vision for the play,” said Paul Nicholson, executive director of the Oregon Shakespeare Festival. Early last year, Haj received the offer to direct “Henry V” for the Oregon Shakespeare Festival this season. “It was entirely coincidental and quite serendipitous that he would ask me to direct a play that I happened to be working on for PlayMakers,” Haj said. “Henry V” will begin its nearly four-month run in Ashland, Ore., on June 5 at the outdoor Elizabethan Stage, which seats about 1,200 people. “Because Joe and Jan work so closely together at PlayMakers, we believed it would be a great match,” Nicholson said. “They understand each other’s aesthetic.” Bill Rauch, artistic director

for the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, said he thinks of this crossover as an opportunity to open the door to future collaborations with PlayMakers. “I hope that we will have strengthened a relationship that will be ongoing between our organizations, perhaps including the exchange of productions and cocommissions,” Rauch said in an email. Haj and Chambers aren’t simply taking the “Henry V” that was a part of “The Making of a King” — they are starting from scratch. Chambers, for one, will design the costumes for the Oregon productions. She handled set design for “The Making of a King.” “It is challenging to hold two different productions in one’s head, always,” Chambers said. “When they are the same play and you have two vastly different concepts for them, it can get you a little mixed up at times.” Haj and Chambers said they will have to acclimate themselves to dealing with “Henry V” as independent from the “Henry IV” plays.

“I think there is a different responsibility one owes ‘Henry V’ if you are doing it as a standalone play,” said Haj. PlayMakers decided to take a different approach to “Henry V” because it had to seamlessly blend with the “Henry IV” plays. “We were melding them all together and looking at the arc of Hal as he progressed from a slacker to a king,” Chambers said. While the focus on the play has shifted, so has the artistic vision. Chambers’ vision for the Oregon production’s costumes distinguishes the English from the French and shows the cost of war. “The English are totally disheveled, distressed, muddy, sick and injured, which contrasts to the French, who look very beautiful,” she said. The opportunity to explore another side of Hal’s journey could have been exhausting for Haj and Chambers, but they said they see it as an opportunity to look at the play from a new angle. “Continuing with the ‘Henry’

plays in Oregon allows me to dig a little deeper in terms of research because I have more time,” Chambers said. “It is so spread out that I’m not getting tired of it. It is only when everything is so crunched for time and you have to knock it out that you get tired of something.” Haj said he is more excited to collaborate with a company as highly regarded as the Oregon Shakespeare Festival. “The opportunity to get in with that cast and start from zero, the great challenge will be to remind myself how much I don’t know about this play and allow my collaborators to influence the process meaningfully,” he said.

he thinks the development could worsen the already congested street. He said he is also concerned the development would not abide by the area’s zoning law because The Retreat would be built in an area that is intended for singlefamily homes. But J.B. Culpepper, director of the Chapel Hill planning department, said the term family only refers to a group of people and does not necessarily mean bloodrelated. Scott Radway, a consultant for Landmark, said the zoning restrictions can only place guidelines on the density of a development, not the nature of its occupants. “In a zoning ordinance, you are not supposed to discriminate against anybody — which in this case would be students,” he said. Radway said The Retreat is being compared to a student housing development proposed in November 2010 called The Cottages of Chapel Hill. The initial plan for The Cottages proposed a 33-acre development to contain 891 bedrooms and 946 parking spaces on Homestead Road. It also would have required the area to be rezoned to allow for a higher density. The proposal for The Cottages was rejected by the town council. Radway said The Retreat is different because it will not require that the area be rezoned to accommodate the development. “It will draw students from existing lesser-quality housing and reduce pressure in other places,” Radway said. The Town Council will review and comment on the concept plan at its Mar. 19 business meeting. Contact the City Editor at city@dailytarheel.com.

››› Romney headed for an easy victory in Arizona primary
CHANDLER, Ariz. (MCT) — They take conservatism seriously in Arizona, the state that launched native son Barry Goldwater to the 1964 Republican presidential nomination and gave him the platform to found the modern conservative movement. They also take seriously a top lesson of Goldwater’s landslide loss in the general election against Democratic President Lyndon Johnson. In their hearts, they might have thought he was right. But in their heads, they would rather have won. That hunger to defeat an incumbent Democratic president — this time Barack Obama — drives Arizona Republicans and helps explain why Mitt Romney appears headed for an easy victory in the state’s primary on Tuesday. The former Massachusetts governor leads the field by comfortable margins in recent polls of likely primary voters. His lead is wide enough that he pulled out of the state after Wednesday’s debate to focus his time on Michigan, where he has a much closer contest with chief rival Rick Santorum, the former senator from Pennsylvania. Like Republicans in other states, voters in Arizona point to Romney’s experience in business and status as a Washington outsider as key reasons they like him. And like voters in some states where Romney has won — such as New Hampshire, Florida and Nevada — they think he’d be a stronger challenger to Obama than the nearest alternative at the moment. In Arizona, many like Santorum. But they fear he might be a bit too conservative, particularly on social issues such as abortion and contraception, to win. Retiree Don Bennett, for example, said Santorum would cost the party swing votes. “They’re going to focus on his social conservatism,” he said. “They’ll try to demonize him. I’m just not sure he could win the independents.” Primary voters by a 2-to-1 ratio say finding a nominee who can defeat Obama is more important than finding a true

US military recovers remains of soldier from Iraq
BEIRUT (MCT) — The U.S. military has recovered the remains of the last U.S. service member missing in Iraq, ending a nearly six-year ordeal involving shadowy militants and a tragic love story, his family said Sunday. About 1 a.m. Sunday, a U.S. officer knocked on the door of the family home in Ann Arbor, Mich., with news that Army Staff Sgt. Ahmed Altaei was confirmed dead. The officer had no details yet on how or when he died, said Entifadh Qanbar, Altaei’s uncle and an aide to Iraqi politician Ahmad Chalabi. Altaei was the last U.S. soldier unaccounted for in Iraq.

Altaei’s brother Hathal Altaei said the military had confirmed his brother’s identity through a DNA test. “The officer came eight hours ago and told us,” Altaei said. “We’ve been waiting for five years, suffering, not knowing if he’s alive or dead. This was not the news we wanted, of course, but it’s better than staying like that, without ever knowing what happened to him.” In 2006, gunmen abducted Altaei, an Iraqi-born reservist who was 41 at the time, after he sneaked out of the Green Zone in Baghdad to visit his new Iraqi wife. Altaei’s official status was “missing-captured” until the Iraqi government turned over his remains to U.S. officials on Feb. 22, Qanbar said. Several arrests were made in connection to the case, but which group captured Altaei was never determined for certain.

Ellington said. But a recent graduate of Gardner-Webb, Collyn Warner, said many women don’t have access to affordable contraception. She said the controversy is not about religious freedom but public health. Warner said many religious colleges are not considering rural areas in the U.S. where a religious hospital might be the only available health care facility or that some women have needs for birth control outside of preventing pregnancy. “You can’t assume all students who go to one university, or work for the same company, or subscribe to the same religion will share the same perspective on contraception,” she said. Despite varied opinions on whether the debate should focus on religious freedom or public health, many of the women agreed that more female perspectives should be heard in the debate. Olivia Teague, a student at Gardner-Webb, supports her university’s decision to not provide contraceptives, but she said more women need to be involved on the federal level. “I don’t feel like men alone, even if they are women’s health care professionals, can or should be able to make decisions about women’s health without major input from women,” she said.

Arabic Immersion Program
Summer 2012

The growth of the Arabic program at UNC-Chapel Hill in the last 10 years is evidence that understanding the Arabic world is appealing to many students across campus and in the community. Through the immersion program, students will combine language and culture classes because research has shown that linguistic competency is heavily dependent on cultural competency. Depending on their language ability, students would earn 7 credits and take either ARAB 101 or ARAB 203 and combine that course with ARAB 150, the culture class, in the five-week first session beginning May 15. Through immersion, students will be immersed in cultural activities similar to� Arabic table� the such as ARAB dance, ARAB songs, ARAB dishes, ARAB Hennah and ARAB calligraphy. Also, students can accelerate the pace at which they learn and be ready to move to the next language course in second summer session or in the fall.

Looking for money

When Chapel Hill Transit drafts its budget next month, its leaders will have to decide how to make up for a lack of federal and state subsidies that has persisted for years. More than 7 million riders used the buses last year, an increase from 2.5 million in 2002, when the system became fare-free. Last year, the lack of funding forced Chapel Hill Transit to cut service on several routes, including the RU, NU and CCX. Assistant Transit Director Brian Litchfield said the system now receives $3.3 million toward operating and maintenance costs from the state, a 10 percent decrease from last year. They have also received declining federal funds, and expect both funding sources to stay stagnant this year. This year, total costs are expected to be about $18.6 milContact the State and National lion. That’s 7 percent more than Editor at state@dailytarheel.com. last year’s budget due to the

‘What you want to do is get the truth’
This column is part of a series written by seniors from the pilot senior seminar on American citizenship. The class is led by its students, whose interests and experiences are as diverse as their areas of study. These columns are their lessons. e recently led a seminar on journalism and citizenship, and when we asked our classmates how many of them had been misquoted by The Daily Tar Heel, the most-read paper on campus, about two-thirds of our 16-person class raised their hands. The DTH plays an integral role in the shared experience of our community. It adorns the walls of restaurants on Franklin Street, a testament to its ability to powerfully capture moments in our communal history. You might hate the paper, or you might read it every day, but few people neglect to pick it up when something happens. It’s a conversation starter at UNC. For many students, being quoted in the DTH is the first time they see their names in print. Their interactions with the DTH not only shape their perceptions of this paper but also of the media more broadly. It’s imperative that journalists get it right. That sounds obvious, but as veteran reporter of The (Raleigh) News & Observer and Pulitzer Prize winner Pat Stith told us, “It’s not enough to get the quote correct ... That’s child’s play. What you want to do is get the truth.” We are biased on this subject. We both worked at the DTH as reporters and editors for three years. We know the hard work it takes to produce a high-quality paper every day while simultaneously teaching new journalists. We now work at reesenews.org, the digital publication at UNC’s journalism school, where we face many of the same challenges without the level of scrutiny the community puts on the DTH. We’re not immune to this problem. We’ve filed our fair share of corrections to inaccurate stories. But our experience has shown how rarely we appreciate the impact an unfair story can have, often because we don’t hear from subjects after the stories run. We saw this scenario play out in Friday’s front-page article about the Morehead-Cain Foundation’s finances. We spoke with one of the students quoted in the story, sophomore Izaak Earnhardt, and read a transcript of his interview with the DTH reporter. By taking Earnhardt’s first quote out of context, the DTH portrayed him, intentionally or not, as an ungrateful recipient of a generous scholarship. We are both Morehead-Cain scholars, but neither of us knew Earnhardt before the story ran. How did this experience affect Earnhardt’s faith in journalists? He said he’d had doubts in the past about the DTH’s accuracy, but he’d provided quotes for the story about the Morehead-Cain in an effort to give the article the student perspective he thought it deserved. But after this experience, would he give a quote to the DTH again? “Hell, no,” he said. Earnhardt is just a single voice in a paper that quotes dozens of them accurately every day. But based on the hands raised in our class, his experience is not unique. It serves as a reminder to all student media, including ours, that we’re doing more than gracing the ceiling of Sutton’s — we’re shaping people’s long-lasting perceptions of the industry we care so much about.

lETTErS TO THE EDiTOr
Dance Marathon’s about the kids, not the money
TO THE EDITOR: In response to Friday’s editorial, “Going further for the kids: UNC Dance Marathon is impressive but could do even more,” there are several false criticisms I wish to address. This article reflects a lack of research and basic understanding of the organization’s overall mission, and it’s extremely disheartening to see the yearlong efforts of Dance Marathon being reduced to a mere monetary total. UNC Dance Marathon has continued to top its fundraising total each year for the past several years. In my opinion, this in no way reflects a “lack of diversification” in fundraising. In fact, it reflects the complete opposite scenario. This year, Dance Marathon reached out to more communities than ever before and drew in funding, support and various new partnerships from communities all across the state. As a member of the outreach committee, I was able to witness firsthand the eagerness of new sponsors to participate and make a difference in the lives of others without expecting a dime in return. As indicated by the fact that nearly $50,000 more was raised this year than last year, I would deem the efforts of the marathon a success by any numerical standard. To say that the organization has failed to seek new funding opportunities is a complete fallacy and undermines the efforts of those who work to provide support for N.C. Children’s Hospital. Finally, while achieving high levels of financial support is one of the many goals of Dance Marathon, it is certainly not the most important. Whether we raise $10 or $10 million, our success is based on the difference that the generosity of the participants makes in the lives of the hospital’s patients and their families. It’s about students who choose to selflessly give up hours of their time that could easily be spent on more immediate and self-gratifying activities. Dance Marathon is not a race between schools to see who can raise the most money or recruit the most students. It is about compassion, which continues to motivate the organization to be better each year, not an arbitrary statistic. Katie Barbee ’13 Journalism and Political Science school student who pays his own rent and will probably never make it to college, and countless students who have skipped meals to save money. This is what it means to struggle from recession. Not getting to take a gap year is not quite the same as what most of us are going through. So to the current scholars: we get it, you worked really hard in high school and you totally deserve to be rewarded by the Morehead-Cain meritocracy. However, I implore you and any Carolina student who has ever had the privilege of having his or her tuition, basic needs and extra luxuries paid for by someone else to be sensitive to the fact that a lot of members of the student body at this University don’t have that same privilege. We’re sorry that “the Foundation” couldn’t afford that gap year you were expecting, but we welcome you to our everyday reality of struggling financially. If you really want it, why don’t you do what any nonprivileged student would do and pick up another job, fill out tons of grant applications and earn the money for it yourself?

How to invest — or divest

EDiTOriAl

UNC needs avenues for airing concerns about the endowment.

arlier this month, the UNC Sierra Student Coalition delivered a letter to Chancellor Holden Thorp calling on the University to divest from coal. Endowment transparency is an old issue, but this letter — which was co-signed by 35 student leaders from across UNC’s campus — merits another look at our endowment. Also copied on this letter were the members of the Board of Trustees, the endowment’s board of directors and the UNC Management Company, which is responsible for investing the University’s endowment. Like any business, the mission of UNC Management Company is to maximize returns. But since these returns are used exclusively to fund UNC, it makes little sense for them to be earned by supporting ventures that are directly opposed to the University’s stated aims. And one of these aims is sustainability. UNC Management Company was established in 2003 to manage UNC’s endowment, recently estimated at $2.5 billion. The company’s status as a separate — but still nonprofit — entity allows it to operate differently than the rest of the University. Unlike the UNC administration, UNC Management can offer its employees the same kind of compensation as other asset managers, with whom UNC Management competes for talent in the lucrative financial services industry. The company can also limit disclosure of its investments. But the University itself is not

a business, and our investment choices should reflect this. Altering the way our endowment operates need not mean sacrificing our returns. Some of the largest and most successful endowments in the country screen their holdings to avoid investing in socially irresponsible companies. While the endowment may not want to provide a detailed list of its holdings, it can do a better job of providing information about where it invests the University’s funds. Some universities divulge detailed information about their holdings, which tend to be extensively diversified to minimize risk. The money in a given university’s endowment might be invested in anything from a mutual fund in Hong Kong to real estate in California. The Sierra Club’s goal of total divestment from the worst offenders in the coal industry may be too lofty, but UNC Management must do more than just present its target asset allocation, which is the extent of its current disclosure. Other options exist to make our endowment more socially responsible. For companies in which UNC holds a significant stake, UNC Management and the endowment’s board can use UNC’s influence as a shareholder to push for changes in company policy. For instance, if UNC invests in a large utility, we could lobby for it to retire its coal plants within a specific timeframe or ask that it retrofit its existing plants to modern pollution standards. Yale University and Duke University have two of the largest endowments in the country, at $19.4 billion and $5.7 billion, respectively. Both

universities have committees consisting of students, faculty, alumni and administrators to review proposals like the Sierra Student Coalition’s. If the committee thinks a proposal’s complaints are legitimate, it makes a recommendation to the endowment’s board to divest from the industry in question. If nothing else, the endowment should insert a clause into its charter that would allow it to consider social responsibility in its administration of the portfolio. Numerous other prominent state schools have similar clauses. Moreover, there is a precedent for socially conscious investing at UNC: in 1986, after months of student protest, UNC divested from apartheid South Africa. More recently, the University took a stand against human rights abuses in Sudan. It may be true that coal doesn’t present the same sort of immediate, severe threat to human rights as the examples above, and it therefore lacks the near-unanimous disapproval these more widely publicized causes enjoyed. Nevertheless, in terms of endowment divestment, coal is the issue students have shown interest in. It transcends environmental issues and reaches into the spheres of public health, employment and industry in North Carolina. As the University embarks on another fundraising campaign, there is no better time for the endowment to be more transparent, since students, faculty and donors deserve to know where their money is going. It is time for the University to stop paying lip service to our campus-wide sustainability goals and instead put our money where our mouth is.

Public education matters to all parties involved
TO THE EDITOR: A Feb. 22 article in The Daily Tar Heel stated that Democrat resignations and retirements would be damaging to the state’s makeup because these legislators were vocal supporters of public universities. Why does the DTH assume that fiscal conservatives are not equally committed to public education and the university system? As the Republican candidate for N.C. State House, District 54, Chatham County and parts of Lee County, I ask that you please consider me a vocal supporter. Providing for and funding an excellent education for our children is not just a concern for Democrats. It is all our concern. Our education system is at the root of our success as a state and a society. Last year, every area of the state budget was examined. The legislature had to close a $1 billion budget gap. Education makes up over half of the state’s budget — 57 percent to be exact not including stimulus funds — so it is unreasonable to think that cuts were not going to happen unless we wanted to see other state departments and programs end. University restructuring as a result of budget cuts can lead to finding waste, inefficiencies or duplicative services, and ultimately means that citizens are getting more for their taxes. Resignations have not caused the University to lose friends in the legislature. We can work together to find ways to provide our children with solutions that promote competitiveness, empower parents and students, and streamline costs. Cathy Wright Republican Candidate District 54

Credibility and corrections

It could be a lot worse than missing a gap year
TO THE EDITOR: Many Morehead-Cain scholars are incredible individuals very deserving of this prestigious full scholarship. However, I was disappointed to read Friday’s article highlighting some of the struggles these scholars are facing due to the recession. In my time at Carolina, I’ve met a student who is no longer here because she couldn’t afford tuition, a local high

I

hesitated to publish the column to your left for fear of making a mountain out of a molehill. After all, I deal with calls for corrections on a daily basis. What I realize, however, is that most of you do not, and the process of handling these situations deserves transparency. And because the credibility I so fiercely fight for is on the line, I don’t want objections to Friday’s article about the Morehead-Cain Foundation to go unaddressed. I do my best to take all potential corrections seriously, but not every angry call to the newsroom means we made a mistake. And even when we do, a single mistake shouldn’t prevent people from speaking to The Daily Tar Heel again. And I hope it wouldn’t deter them from reading the paper, whose staff of student writers changes and learns constantly. When a source feels they’ve been misrepresented, a back-andforth between the editor and the source is to be expected as we try to get to the crux of the issue. At first,

we inevitably see things differently. But my hope is to understand. With Izaak Earnhardt, a familiar scenario unfolded. After conversations with him and with the reporter and desk editor who worked on the story, I found that while the quote used was accurate, it was juxtaposed with other facts in a way that misrepresented Earnhardt’s point. I also learned of a misunderstanding that led to an incorrect assumption, which you’ll see corrected on page 2. Earnhardt, my staff and I worked together to correct the

problem. I marked another check in my book of things I’ve learned about newspapering this year. Not every one of these conversations will result in a correction. I’ve been quoted in a newspaper before, and I wasn’t happy about the way I said what I said. But I said it, and it was the truth. I don’t expect to make everyone happy. Sometimes, what we read ourselves saying in print can throw us for a loop, even if the words are correct. But in any case in which the DTH quotes a source out of context, as this one was, it deserves to be addressed and corrected. It’s important to understand and reflect on the impact our words have, both on our subjects and on our readers — who are often one and the same. If you feel something’s been done in error, please call me. It’s my responsibility to work with you to set the record straight. Even if we don’t always agree, I hope the truth will be the end result.

Sigma Phi ready to gain recognition by the IFC
By Lucie Ronfaut
Staff Writer

Although they are not yet recognized by the Interfraternity Council as an official brotherhood, members of the Sigma Phi Society are ready to make an impact on UNC’s Greek community. The group is officially considered a student organization rather than a fraternity, but members said they are in the first stages of applying to be part of the IFC. Aaron Bachenheimer, director

of fraternity and sorority life and community involvement, said the process could start as soon as this semester. “They’re doing things that I think both the University and the IFC want to see out of groups which want to be successful,” Bachenheimer said. Sigma Phi is not brand new, as the chapter was started in 2008 by four UNC students who were recruited and contacted by the national Sigma Phi organization. But the four creators lacked the

resources to make the fraternity sustainable, said Recruitment Chairman Brandon Mayfield. Mayfield said the founders recruited 17 students to jump-start the organization last spring, and since then it has almost doubled. Sigma Phi aims to recruit people who are not part of the usual fraternity crowd in order to open up the Greek community, said Vice President Tal Havivi. “Although we respect them a lot, some people don’t fall into categories of most fraternities

here,” he said. “We are providing an alternative.” This school year, Sigma Phi recruited 15 brothers who were invited to rush by their involvement in the campus life, bringing their membership to a total of 32. “We are trying to do something meaningful and fun for a lot of guys,” said President Josh Barrett. But even though Sigma Phi is still small compared to the other fraternities, brothers said they are less worried about size than quality of their brotherhood.

“We’d rather be known as a smaller group for great things than as a larger group for things that aren’t that great,” said Jacob Morse, public relations chairman. The rush period for Sigma Phi is different in its timeline and process because of its lack of official fraternity standing, but that will change upon IFC recognition. “We have a more selective rush process,” Mayfield said. “We’re pickier on who we want to come to our events during rush week.” To provide a more communal

feel, 14 members of Sigma Phi will move to an off-campus house next year, even though it will not be an official fraternity house. IFC President Jack Partain said Sigma Phi is the first group in a long time that is entirely new to campus and also trying to join the IFC. “We hope they will get through the process soon,” he said. “It will be a positive addition to the IFC.” Contact the University Editor at university@dailytarheel.com.

UNC rolls against Albany, Vanderbilt

baseball

this weekend, Unc topped no. 16 albany and no. 10 Vanderbilt.
By Ben Stewart
Staff Writer

A little more than one minute into the first half of Friday night’s game against No. 16 Albany, Kara Cannizzaro buried the ball into the back of the net on a free position shot. From there, the No. 3 North Carolina women’s lacrosse team never looked back. A rain delay lasting slightly more than an hour did little to postpone UNC’s offensive attack, which started fast and finished strong on the way to a dominating 16-7 victory at Fetzer Field. The Tar Heels also beat No. 10 Vanderbilt 18-9 on Sunday. Less than a minute after Cannizzaro’s opening goal on Friday, Abbey Friend tallied two more scores, giving the Tar Heels a 3-0 advantage. After Albany responded with a goal of its own, UNC posted five-straight goals to go ahead 8-1. “It was big that we just took it to them right away,” coach Jenny Levy said. “Any game plan they had, maybe to stall the ball or do something different on us, went away because we were able to pound them quickly.” Perhaps even more striking was the ease with which the Tar Heels converted defensive stops and draw controls into offensive opportunities and, ultimately, goals. The UNC transition game stood out Friday thanks to a 20-5 advantage in draw controls and a 19-11 edge in ground balls. “Getting up the field is something we really like to do

“Everybody is responsible for putting the ball in the back of the net.”

because it’s a true testament to our athleticism and how hard we prepare in the offseason,” said Friend, who finished with four goals. “We go into every team with the same mindset that we’re going to push hard and go hard the whole game.” Against Vanderbilt on Sunday, UNC was met with a bit more resistance, but eventually had its way in the victory. A stingier defensive effort by the Commodores forced the Tar Heels to take their time on offense, but in the end, Vanderbilt couldn’t keep the Tar Heels off the board. While still pushing the pace to get the ball out of their own end of the field, the Tar Heels often settled in the offensive zone, passing the ball around patiently before dodging and looking for shots. Senior captain Laura Zimmerman said the Tar Heels moved the ball more slowly on offense to gauge how the Vanderbilt defense would react and to allow the UNC defense to rest after long defensive possessions. “Capitalizing on those goals out of those possessions really helped us with the win,” she said.

Ten different UNC pitchers saw time on the mound during the course of the weekend, and the Tar Heels didn’t allow a single earned run in its three victories. Tar Heel ace Kent Emanuel kicked off the weekend Friday, allowing just three hits and striking out five in six innings pitched. Junior Chris Munnelly made the start Saturday, adding seven more shutout innings to UNC’s total. With the tying run at the plate in the top of the ninth Sunday, closer Michael Morin capped off the Tar Heels’ series sweep with a strikeout. It seemed like a fitting conclusion to a weekend during which UNC pitchers proved what they were made of. Orlan already knew. But now, he’s just glad that everyone else does, too. “We didn’t pitch too well last weekend,” Orlan said. “We really wanted to come out this weekend and make a statement that, hey, we’ve got one of the best pitching staffs in the country, and we want to make sure it’s noticed.” Contact the Sports Editor at sports@dailytarheel.com.

Zimmerman facilitated much of the UNC attack, clearing the ball and running the offense, en route to scoring five goals and assisting two others. Zimmerman and Friend, who also had five goals on Sunday, were two of five Tar Heels who tallied two or more scores during the game. “We have a lot of different threats on the field, and if everybody plays hard and plays within our game, things are going to open up because all of our kids can dodge and feed and handle and finish,” said Levy. “We’re not trying to isolate one kid to pull the wagon, so to speak. Everybody is responsible for putting the ball in the back of the net.”

played itself into a one-point lead with a minute remaining. The Tar Heels had possession with 48 seconds remaining. Marshall made a move, drove left and tossed the ball to his right to find forward Tyler Zeller. Zeller pump faked then drove to his left and stretched out for the one-handed dunk and the threepoint lead with 13 seconds to go. Williams called Zeller’s play huge and the win lucky. That’s because, among other reasons, UNC allowed Zeglinski an open look from 3-point range with six seconds remaining. “Though we had some breakdowns, we had a chance to win it or push it into extra minutes in the last three possessions,” Virginia coach Tony Bennett said. “Sammy’s (shot) was a good look.” Zeglinski — a 35 percent shooter from behind the arc — was wide open in the corner when he took his 3-pointer. He was 3-for10 behind the arc in the game, but more than capable of knocking that shot down. “Everyone was stacked that way, so you’re thinking, ‘OK, well everyone knows the ball is going there so it’s not going to get there,’” Harrison Barnes said. “For him to get a clean look like that, it was a little nerve-racking.” Zeglinski made more 3s than UNC’s entire team, and the Tar Heels poor 2-for-14 clip allowed the Cavaliers to pack inside defensively. Zeller shot 7-of-11 and scored 20 points, but no other player in the game made more than half his shots save Darion Atkins, who made his only attempt. The other members of UNC’s starting frontcourt, Barnes and John Henson, made a combined

lane and attempted to dish it to a waiting Shegog, but instead threw it out of bounds with 27 seconds on the clock. The turnover returned the ball to the Blue Devils and forced UNC to start fouling. Though Duke only hit two of six foul shots following the turnover, the Tar Heels could not generate any offense off the missed free throws. “We fouled the right person and everything, but it just didn’t turn out for us the right way,” Hatchell said. UNC may have lost both contests, but there were significant differences that kept this game more competitive. For the Tar Heels, the first change was made before they even set foot in Carmichael Arena Sunday. Contact the Sports Editor “Three weeks ago, we know at sports@dailytarheel.com. we didn’t play how we could have played,” Shegog said. “We spent the time, we analyzed their team and this time we had a really solid game plan to try to beat them.” UNC also adjusted its defense in the second half to man-to-man,

preventing Duke from hitting its stride from beyond the arc. In the first meeting, Duke hit 10 3-pointers, shooting 50 percent from long range. Sunday, the Blue Devils only drained two of their 10 triple attempts. But Duke proved that it could overcome poor 3-point shooting behind the frontcourt play of Elizabeth Williams and Haley Peters. “It’s so important to be more than a 3-point shooting team,” Duke coach Joanne McCallie said. “Because some nights it just doesn’t go and it just doesn’t work for you. You want to be that great team that can defend and rebound.” UNC’s Senior Day loss concludes its injury-marred regular season and leaves the Tar Heels looking for a fresh start on Thursday at the ACC tournament. “The regular season is over and

Tough test at Virginia
UnC scored just 17 field goals in its win against Virginia.
By Mark Thompson
Senior Writer

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. — Nothing came easily for No. 7 North Carolina in its 54-51 win against Virginia. Even Roy Williams struggled at one point when trying to put the game into words, calling it everything from a “hard fart” game to a “hard fault” game before he said what he really thought. “It was a tough-ass game.” The Tar Heels (25-4, 12-2 ACC) don’t usually win games in which they only score 54 points. Saturday’s game set a new low. Virginia (21-7, 8-6) held

UNC to 17 field goals in the game. No UNC team under Williams has made fewer field goals in a win. Yet in the midst of UNC’s truncated offensive output, the Tar Heels felt pretty high. “I’m very happy we’re able to win a game like this,” UNC point guard Kendall Marshall said. “To come on the road and shoot a low 30s (field goal percentage), I think it’s pretty impressive to win a game like that.” But it could have gone drastically differently for UNC. North Carolina rolled out to an early 17-8 lead, but the Cavaliers closed the half with a 30-26 lead after UVa. guard Sammy Zeglinski hit a long 3-pointer at the buzzer. After a brawler’s second half of basketball, North Carolina

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. — The North Carolina men’s basketball team was clinging to a one-point lead in the final 20 seconds of Saturday’s contest at No. 25 Virginia, when Kendall Marshall found Tyler Zeller on the right elbow. Zeller was not even supposed to be an option on the play, but he turned the opportunity into an authoritative and decisive moment with a slam dunk in the last 13 seconds, giving UNC the final advantage, 54-51. “It’s a play we run all the time,” Zeller said. “I was actually the only person that wasn’t supposed to be an option to score and somehow I ended up with the ball.”

The set was designed for Zeller to be the screener, but Zeller slipped free and Marshall got him the ball. Virginia’s Akil Mitchell stepped to Zeller and fell for the most important shot fake of the game. “I knew that time was running down, so I shot faked and once I was around him the lane was wide open,” Zeller said. “The only person there was Mike Scott, so if he jumped I had to go up and finish, so I just had to go up strong.” Marshall saw Zeller sliding across the lane and knew as soon as he made the dish to Zeller that he had put the ball in capable hands. “I figured if I threw it to him he’d be able to get a shot off,”

Duke drops Tar Heels for season sweep

WoMen’S BaSketBall: DUke 69, north Carolina 63

In last weekend’s seasonopening series against Xavier, the No. 4 North Carolina baseball team showed a weakness on the mound, as the Musketeers recorded 37 hits and 16 runs during the three-game series. But the Tar Heels remained confident in the talents of their pitching staff. And in UNC’s weekend series against Wright State, that certainty finally made sense. Fueled by near-spotless pitching and 20 straight shutout innings, the Tar Heels topped the Raiders 17-3, 14-0 and 3-0 on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, respectively. After a pair of strong offensive performances, headlined by third baseman Colin Moran’s cycle on Saturday, Sunday’s finale was a bit of a pitcher’s duel. But catcher Jacob Stallings liked who UNC had in that fight. “Coach preaches it all the time, pitching and defense,” Stallings said. “That’s the name of the game. We’re not going to go out there and score 14, 17, 16 runs all the time, so we want to rely on our pitching and defense.” Freshman hurler Chris O’Brien started for the Tar Heels on Sunday, and after allowing six hits, no runs and striking out four in four innings pitched, he was relieved by R.C. Orlan. By earning his second win of the season, Orlan proved he can

be a consistent contributor out of the bullpen. The junior southpaw retired all 12 batters he faced Sunday, and has now pitched a total of nine shutout innings this season. “Talking to coach Forbes over the summer, he just said, ‘Look, I just want you to work on commanding your fastball. And then working off your speed stuff,’” Orlan said. “I just really focused on that, and it’s paying off.” Orlan made a name for himself with a pair of solid outings in UNC’s College World Series appearance in June.

With her team seeming to fall further and further behind archrival Duke with every possession, Brittany Rountree took the reins for North Carolina in the second half, electrifying UNC with her 3-point shooting. But unfortunately for the Tar Heels, Rountree’s 14 second-half points were not enough, and the Blue Devils snatched the 69-63 victory to claim the series sweep and the ACC regular-season title. “I thought we competed hard in the second half,” UNC coach Sylvia Hatchell said. “I thought we did some good things. Brittany (Rountree) made some big shots for us, and we ran a couple of things at the end, got some really good looks. “We did some good things, but you know, it didn’t turn out for us right.” At the break, Duke held a 14-point lead against UNC and eventually stretched the lead to 17 early in the second half. It was then that the Tar Heels realized they did not want a repeat of the 40-point thrashing at the hands of Duke three weeks prior. Rountree used her momentum to give her team the much-needed boost. “I realized that they were playing off me a little bit, so I looked

But it was little mistakes prevented them from getting any closer. Tierra Ruffin-Pratt drove the
