Coach Roy Williams broke his silence earlier this week regarding North Carolina shooting guard P.J. Hairstons arrest, despite originally pledging to withhold comment until all the facts were gathered. In a statement released Monday, Williams said he had spoken to Hairston about serious mistakes he had made, and he promised serious consequences. Certainly the idea of suspending P.J. has been discussed, Williams said. However, he is not currently enrolled in summer school, is not practicing with the team and we have no games until November. At a Durham license check in early June, Hairston was arrested and charged with driving without a license and possession of marijuana. Durham Police Public Information Officer Kammie Michael said at the time a gun and ammunition magazine were also found outside the vehicle. On July 10, Michael said the Durham police didnt anticipate filing any additional

In the weeks since P.J. Hairstons initial arrest, his case has continued to develop: June 5: Hairston was arrested and charged with possession of marijuana. A gun was found outside of the rental car. July 3: USA Today revealed Hairston was driving a car rented by Haydn Fats Thomas, a felon awaiting trial for drug charges. July 15: Roy Williams said Hairston will face serious consequences for his actions. Aug. 6: Hairston will appear in court for his initial charges.

On the ground floor of Northside Elementary School, a display case is under construction. Along with painting touch-ups, fire alarm tests and carpet installation, the display case is one of many final details being worked on at Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools newest elementary. When the school opens on Aug. 26, students will walk by it every day on their way to the cafeteria and gym. While construction details such as sky-

lights, solar heating and a green roof link the school to the future, the contents of that case the cornerstone of the original Northside Elementary will make sure Northside has one foot planted squarely in the past. In 1924, the cornerstone of the allAfrican-American Orange County Training School was laid at 350 Caldwell St., the site that is now home to the new Northside Elementary. The training school became Lincoln High School in 1948 and Northside Elementary in 1951, when a new Lincoln structure was built.

The only elementary school in town for African-American children, Northside closed shortly after mandatory integration of the district began in 1966. The building was then used mainly as office space until it was razed to make way for the new school. Last year, the CHCCS Board of Education decided to name the districts 11th elementary after the historic segregated school that occupied the same piece of land. And for Northside alumni who experienced school segregation in Chapel Hill, the

than suspension has become the standard punishment. What this change does is alter the standard sanction for sexual assault so that expulsion becomes the rule for perpetrators, rather than the exception, Jones said. Panels can still decide to not expel a student if they are found responsible, but it would come under stricter scrutiny and could be subject to appeal to the Appellate Board. Christi Hurt, UNCs interim Title IX coordinator, said there is nothing in the Universitys current sexual assault policy that names a recommended punishment for assault cases. She said the policy outlines a range of sanctions, including expulsion. The Sexual Assault Task Force appointed in May has been working throughout the summer to make recommendations on revising the Universitys sexual assault policy. Hurt, chairwoman of the task

As UNCs handling of sexual assault cases continues to be examined, Duke University has taken steps to toughen its own sanctioning in such cases naming expulsion as the recommended punishment for perpetrators.

The American Civil Liberties Union of North Carolina has cleared the first hurdles of an extensive process to mount a constitutional attack on North Carolinas Amendment One, the states ban on gay marriage. As the ACLU embarks on a $10-million campaign to achieve same-sex marriage nationwide, the organization announced last week it would amend an existing federal lawsuit in N.C. addressing second-parent adoption rights for gay couples. The revised legal challenge, if approved, could result in the striking down of Amendment One a ballot initiative that N.C. voters

Three weeks after the U.S. Supreme Court invalidated part of the federal Defense of Marriage Act, attorneys representing gay couples, like Brook and his partner, have scrambled to decipher potential legal implications of Justice Anthony Kennedys majority opinion. Gene Nichol, a UNC law professor, said in an email the courts ruling has left voter-approved gay marriage bans, like North Carolinas, on shaky ground. The DOMA case held that restrictions on the intimate and private decisions of lesbians and gay men including marriage cant be based on the mere desire of the majority to express disapproval

uilding up spiritual treasures for yourself in the hereafter has never been easier. For Catholic World Youth Day, Pope Francis is pardoning the peoples sins in return for following him on Twitter. Its not a bad deal either, because how often can a simple click get you a couple of years off of your necessary time in purgatory at the end of your life? So as part of his push to modernize the church and take advantage of social media, Francis is bringing back the indulgences that were oh-sopopular in the 15th and 16th centuries but with a technological twist. Now all thats left is for a particularly Twitter-savvy Martin Luther to tap into the internet vernacular and bring this back to the people.

They told me the concept was to paint a picture of superheroes who protect the world. The dean of Thailands top university apologized after students included Hitler on a banner of cartoon heroes.

Abortion bill battles heat up

The N.C. Senate bill could face legal challenges in the future.
By Tara Jeffries

actors make the cut

A crop of recent abortion legislation nationwide has bred controversy that could lead to the courtroom, and an N.C. abortion bill might face the same future if it becomes law. The American Civil Liberties Union and Planned Parenthood are beginning a legal push against abortion restrictions in Wisconsin and Texas and opponents of the N.C. Senates abortion bill say murky language in the legislation could eventually land it in court. The bill, which would task the Department of Health and Human Services with updating standards for state abortion clinics, passed the N.C. House of Representatives last week and is now in a Senate committee. Gov. Pat McCrory said in a statement after the vote he would sign the bill into law. But some regulations could be too vague to be enforceable, their shakiness bolstered by a lack of defined language or constitutional basis, said N.C. Rep. Rick Glazier (D-Cumberland), who is also an attorney. The bill, for example, requires a doctor stay with the patient for the entire abortion procedure a gray area Glazier said could stretch to an hour pre-operation and postoperation plus the procedure itself. Doctors just dont sit around holding patients hands for an hour pre-op, he said. Youre putting in place something that isnt required of any other doctor in any other setting. Caitlin Borgmann, an analyst at the Columbia Center for Gender and Sexuality Law in New York, said these types of legislation which pro-abortion rights advocates have called targeted regulation of abortion providers have been hard to fight in the courtroom. Unless you can prove that one of those regulations was the reason a clinic had to shut down, it can be difficult to prove that the law was the thing that caused the undue burden, she said. Still, Borgmann said similar laws might eventually be a victim of their own success. Courts might become more receptive to legal challenges as anti-abortion advocates aims gain transparency, she said. She added that these laws regulate abortion clinics in ways that make it expensive or impossible for them to meet requirements. The goal behind them is for these abortion clinics to have to shut down, she said. North Carolinas bill is ... in that vein. Planned Parenthood spokeswoman Irene Godinez said though the bills language might still be changing, the organization will be following it closely. If its the current version of the bill (that passes), we will certainly pursue legal recourse, Godinez said. Even the amended abortion language in the Senate bill, though less severe than a House bill that came before it, would still whittle down abortion access by ramping up costs to clinics, Glazier said. But such abortion restrictions, like their legislative kin headed to Texas Gov. Rick Perrys desk, would ensure higher health and safety standards for clinics, said Elizabeth Graham, spokeswoman for the anti-abortion group Texas Right to Life. N.C.s bill is expected to gain Senate approval by the end of the week.

High schoolers showcase Sweeney Todd production

By McKenzie Coey

The Demon Barber of Fleet Street is making an appearance at UNCs Center for Dramatic Art this weekend. PlayMakers Summer Youth Conservatory will perform the musical Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street to conclude its five-week summer theater intensive program. Tim Scales founder of the arts marketing company Wagon Wheel Arts, which has been working with PlayMakers said the high school students who put on the show are from around the Triangle area, and they all have a passion for theater. Scales also said he thought the conservatory was an ideal training ground for students aspiring to become theater professionals. This is a professional production, and the fact that it is high school students doesnt mean it is kids putting on a play, Scales said. It shows in the work on stage and professionalism of the people involved. Scales said the theater-intensive students were split into two groups acting and theater tech. Jenny Wales, PlayMakers' education man-

ager, led the production. She said the tech students worked to build the set, hang lights and design and create costumes for the production. The theater tech students are on the front lines really producing everything to create the show under adult supervision, Wales said. She also said the staff was looking for a challenging piece for students to work on, and Sweeney Todd fit the bill. Our goal is to give them something to sink their teeth into, she said. (Sweeney Todd) is an incredibly difficult and complicated show. It is exciting to get to tackle something that is a musical masterpiece. She said the most challenging things about preparation were the logistics during rehearsals. It is less a challenge than it is a thrilling time for us all, she said. Wales also said she enjoyed witnessing the improvements the students made throughout the program. Watching students become more focused in their artistry as well as their technical ability is hands down the most rewarding part, Wales said. Chloe Lucente, who graduated from

It was really fun putting it all together, and the final product sounds really cool, she said. Lucente said the show has helped her grow as an actor. (I have) definitely been learning outside of my comfort zone, she said. I have had to stretch myself and go forward and not look back. Wales said this production is not only a great experience for the students, but it will also be enriching for the audience members, as well. It is going to be a really exciting opportunity for people in the area to see high school students tackle a professional production, she said.

UNC buildings still cleaning up after ood

Carroll Hall and Kenan Stadium are among the damaged facilities.
By Jung Kim

story so far
Abortion legislation has taken shape in recent weeks in the General Assembly: July 3: The N.C. Senate tacked abortion restrictions onto a Sharia law bill. July 10: The House introduced abortion regulations into a motorcycle safety bill. July 11: Senate Bill 353, the motorcycle safety bill, passed the House. Similar measures have made their way through other state legislatures, including a controversial bill in Texas.

Campus buildings affected by the record-breaking rainfall that flooded Chapel Hill June 30 are still undergoing repairs forcing some students to change up their normal routines. Athletic facilities, a residence hall and other campus buildings sustained flood damage. The Student Recreation Center on South Road has been closed to users due to damages from the flooding. Reggie Hinton, the facilities and operations director for campus recreation, said most of the first floor of the SRC was flooded, damaging its front entrance, offices, weight room and carpeting. He said in the days since the flood, the building has been dried out and is undergoing repairs. The building should be reopened by the start of the fall semester, he said. Hinton said officials are dis-

cussing preventative measures to deal with flooding in the future. The conversation about future flood prevention is on the table, Hinton said. Kevin Best, the assistant athletic director for communications, said Kenan Stadium was also severely damaged by flooding. Since practice begins Aug. 1, the flood does not affect athletes practice, but they have to work out in the weight room on the other side of the stadium, Best said. He said the first floor of the Kenan Football Center and the Charlie Justice Hall of Honors were flooded. As a result, carpets in the weight room and equipment room in the stadium were damaged, forcing officials to move equipment out. Neither Best nor Hinton would comment on the estimated total cost of damages. Larry Hicks, director of housing and residential education, said though flooding damaged McIver Residence Hall, other residence halls on campus were unaffected. Hicks said the flood affected

Hicks also said Granville Towers was badly affected by flooding, but officials at that site could not be reached for comment on the damage.

Carroll Hall was also damaged by flooding. Chris Roush, senior associate dean for undergraduate studies in the School of Journalism and Mass Communication, which is housed in Carroll Hall, said flood water seeped into the auditorium in the basement. Though Roush said the drying process has been completed in the building, some classes previously held in the basement are still being held in other parts of the building.

Carrboro hotels neighbors await opening

Construction began on the Hampton Inn in the spring of 2012.
By McKenzie Coey

State brief
State tax overhaul plan on its way
Both chambers of the N.C. General Assembly gave preliminary approval Tuesday to a revenue-cutting tax deal that legislators say will boost the states economy.
From staff and wire reports

Although the opening of Carrboros first hotel has been delayed from May until August, several owners of nearby businesses say the benefits the project will bring outweigh the disruption caused by construction. Manish Atma, the president of the hotels manager, Atma Hotel Group, said construction is finishing up at the Hampton Inn & Suites in Carrboros 300 East Main development. He said due to factors like the recent heavy rain-

fall, the new expected opening date is between Aug. 12 and 15. We dont like delays but they happen, Atma said. It is a very complex building. He said the group is working on finishing small details. Construction is pretty much complete. We are just now doing finishing and side work, he said. During the hotels planning phase, some businesses and Carrboro Board of Aldermen members had voiced concerns about the negative impact construction could have on downtown. When 26-year-old Carrboro business Nice Price Books closed in February, the stores owner noted sales had declined since the hotel construction began. Art Menius, the executive

director of Carrboros ArtsCenter, said he has seen a disruption to his business since construction began. But he said he thinks though the project has hurt businesses in the short run, it will ultimately be beneficial once the hotel is open. We of course can't wait until the hotel is open and especially until the parking deck is open because that is badly needed by all of the businesses in downtown Carrboro, he said. It will be worth the hassle. Brian White, who owns Carrboros branch of Fleet Feet Sports with his wife, Tricia, said he was excited about the hotels completion. I think the construction around us is a sign of growth, he said. It is only going to be a good

thing to be able to have visitors coming through. Back Alley Bikes owner Jason Merrill said he is hopeful for the improvements the hotel will provide to the area in the long run. The store moved to its new location on Boyd Street in April. The net result will be better for business for everyone around it, he said. I think this has been a long hard road for the folks that have been around for the past year or so. Merrill said his only complaint about construction was the closing of the sidewalk around the hotel. If I were to have a gripe about it, I feel they couldve kept a sidewalk open for a town so footbased as Carrboro, he said. I am ready for it to be open and just kind of waiting it out.

Johnson, Paige ght to gain strength

A pair of UNC players is struggling to gain weight this summer.
By Max Miceli

This offseason, the North Carolina mens basketball team has gotten bigger and its not solely due to an increased number of forwards on the roster. Its also due in part to weight gained by returning players, particularly sophomores Brice Johnson and Marcus Paige. While both players came to UNC undersized as freshmen, each has gained more than 10 pounds so far this summer to increase strength and durability. But strength and conditioning coordinator Jonas Sahratian said its been anything but easy. (Dieting) can be up to 80 percent of the battle, and thats one of the biggest things we fight with, Sahratian said. With Brice, sometimes Im banging my head against the wall like, Dude, Im trying to get you to eat so you can have some durability and not get pushed around. For Johnson and Paige, eating enough food to gain the weight they need to be more productive has been difficult. Paige said he frequently

finds himself needing to eat food toward the end of the day when hes not even hungry. At that point, he said, he doesnt want anything to do with food anymore. Every time I tell him what I ate hes like, Not good enough, Paige said. And with Sahratian expecting his players to eat not only a large quantity of food, but also high-quality foods, the challenge of gaining weight gets even bigger. I try to eat as much as Jonas tells me to, but it's hard sometimes, Johnson said. Food is very expensive these days. Former Tar Heel Marvin Williams, who left for the NBA after winning the national championship in 2005, said he sympathizes with Johnson and Paiges situation. As a freshman at UNC, he was close to the same size as Johnson, and it took him an entire year to understand the importance of nutrition. Before Sahratians guidance, Williams would eat one or two meals a day frequently supplemented by Pop-Tarts and candy instead of the six meals and wholesome foods Sahratian preached. I used to piss him off so bad. I understand, now that Im older, (I) can't eat those types of things, Williams said. Its kind of funny to hear him yell at Brice sometimes or yell at Marcus. Because he was saying

dth file photos/chloe stephenson Sophomores Marcus Paige (left) and Brice Johnson (right) are working hard this offseason to improve their game by gaining weight.

those same exact things to me. Hes right. Williams said having an unlimited meal plan is helpful for people like Paige and Johnson, along with spending as much time in the gym as possible. UNC legend Tyler Hansbrough said Sahratian helps players find healthy foods even in the dining

hall. Jonas understands that as a college kid youre always on the go and that its tough to get good nutrition and meals, Hansbrough said. I used to eat at Rams Head all the time, and he used to tell me certain foods to eat (there). Though Paige and Johnson weigh about 170 and 200 pounds respectively, they're

both looking to gain 5 to 10 more pounds before the start of the season. But their main goal is to become more effective on the court not just to gain weight. (175 pounds is) not like a weight that if I dont get Im going to be disappointed with, Paige said. Its just kind of a random number to have something to look for-

ward to. Sahratian said his philosophy is to make players faster, more powerful and more explosive. Sometimes that requires gaining weight, he said but not always. Im not really focused on playing at a certain weight or anything, Paige said. I just want to be able to be strong.

Former Tar Heel comes back for coaching job

Ivory Latta will be the new womens assistant coach.
By Sarah Brown

North Carolina womens basketball coach Sylvia Hatchell remembers when a seventh-grader named Ivory Latta caught her eye at a UNC

summer basketball camp. Hatchell said she felt Latta was destined for UNC stardom the first day she came to campus. I just fell in love with her, and she fell in love with us and Carolina, Hatchell said. And Latta, UNCs all-time leading scorer, will return to the Tar Heel basketball scene next season, joining her college coach on the sidelines as an assistant for the womens team.

Hatchell said Latta was her first choice to fill the vacant slot, once former assistant coach Trisha Stafford-Odom took the head coaching job at Concordia-Irvine. I told Ivory, Next time I have an opening, you'll be the first one I talk to, she said. Latta said she and her former coach have always had a close player-coach rapport, one that has stretched well beyond the scope of college play. We talk two, three times a week even when Im overseas (playing), Latta said.

Ivory Latta played guard at UNC from 2003 to 2007 and was then drafted to the Washington Mystics.
Latta will be coming to help coach a talented but young team that lost three seniors and has room for improvement, Hatchell said. With a recruiting class of four All-American freshmen,

expectations will be high but injuries and inexperience could stand in the squads way. Well have to go through some growing pains, Hatchell said. And Latta could be the push new and returning players need. Megan Buckland, a redshirt sophomore guard, said she recalls Lattas constant level of energy reserves when she ran the point at UNC. I think about the intensity she brought how fired up she was about every play,

every game, Buckland said. She said she wants the team to emulate Latta, turning energy into high-performance play. There were times (last season) when I felt like we were lackluster out there, she said. (But Latta) will be able to bring that intensity, and more knowledge about the game. Hatchell said Lattas personality and work ethic will ease the transition to coaching as she becomes a team role model especially when players are reluctant to follow coachs orders. Sometimes, she can say, Look, you may think coach Hatchell has lost her mind, but listen theres a purpose to this, Hatchell said. Everything they are experiencing, she has experienced. But thats not to say the 28-year-old Lattas professional playing career is anywhere near over. A lot of people have been like, Oh, my God, you quit the WNBA, she said. No, no, I'm definitely not. But Latta will be back in Chapel Hill before long, a 2014 Final Four run her goal and she has a message for her players as they look to build off a season where they fell in the NCAAs second round. (I want us to) get back to when teams knew they had to play Carolina they'd be like Aw, man, we have to play North Carolina, she said. Weve just got to get back to that Carolina mentality that we had in the years before.

UNC team unearths ancient mosaic

Students found a depiction of a biblical figure in Israel.
By Sarah Chaney

This summer, a team of UNC students and staff excavated an ancient mosaic that might reveal early Jewish beliefs. The group, part of a monthlong study abroad trip to Israel to study archaeology, discovered a mosaic in a synagogue from the late Roman period, around the year 5 A.D. Jocelyn Burney, a senior archaeology and religious studies major who participated in the dig, said the synagogue in Huqoq, where the mosaic was found, is one of only two in Israel with a mosaic depicting the biblical figure Samson. "The second synagogue is only a few miles away, which suggests that Jews in southern Galilee in antiquity had a special interest in him," Burney said. Religious studies profes-

sor Jodi Magness, who has led the archaeological trip for three years, said though biblical mosaic floors are not uncommon, Samson is a rare motif. Samson is depicted as a giant figure in the mosaic, which relates to later traditions of the hero preserved in Talmudic literature, she said. Burney said it was exciting to be among the first to rediscover the mosaic after more than two millennia. "When Dr. Magness realized that we were close to uncovering more mosaics this year, she brought everyone over to that part of the site and let us watch as Orna Cohen, the site conservator, brushed away the last few centimeters of dirt," Burney said. "We were the first ones to see the mosaic in thousands of years. I won't ever forget that feeling." Austin Andrews, a sophomore religious studies and classical archaeology major, said the digging process itself is hard labor. After waking up at 4 a.m., students arrive at the digging site at about 5 a.m. to begin a long day's work in 90-degree temperatures.

Magness described digs as the opposite of construction work using various tools to dig up destroyed objects, such as pottery, glass pieces and metal tips. She said last summer, another mosaic depicting Samson was found at the Huqoq synagogue. The mosaics were removed from the site for storage and conservation, and the excavated areas were backfilled, she said. David Culclasure, a senior classical archaeology and history major, said he was able to work on the Samson square this summer as it was being uncovered each day. "Even though this mosaic was not a complete surprise guesses had been made after last season's dig that suggested more depictions of Samson would be found this mosaic has proven to be full of its own wonders," Culclasure said. "The mosaics would have been expensive to fund and reflect that there was sizable wealth present in Huqoq in the fifth century A.D." The mosaic was not the only discovery Magness and

her team made on the trip, which was co-sponsored by several universities. She said other excavation sites revealed what kind of houses Huqoq inhabitants lived in, as well as the community's agricultural activities. Burney said she worked in the domestic areas of the village rather than at the synagogue site. "The coolest thing for me has been uncovering buildings where people lived and worked and trying to create a picture of what life was like thousands of years ago," Burney said.

Q&A with Mayor Pro Tempore Lydia Lavelle

Lydia Lavelle is Carrboros Mayor Pro Tempore and has been a member of the Board of Aldermen since 2007. She recently filed as a candidate for mayor in the 2013 election. Daily Tar Heel staff writer Claire Ogburn spoke with Lavelle to discuss her platform and what she sees as the biggest issues facing Carrboro. community also approached me about running, and after much consideration and discussion with my family, I decided to give it a go.

DTH: What do you see as the most critical roles for Carrboros mayor? LL: While the mayor should be a spokesperson of sorts for the Board of Aldermen, I also believe the mayor has the unique opportunity to promote the town in other ways, such as representing the board on groups that are composed of leaders from other jurisdictions, and serving as an ambassador for the community.
Mayor Chiltons legacy youd like to continue?

Lydia Lavelle has filed to run for mayor of Carrboro, replacing Mark Chilton, in the 2013 election cycle.

we myself and the board will continue to make our voices heard.

DTH: What initiatives would you like to pursue? LL: In addition to transportation alternatives, I would like to focus on continuing our search with the county for a site in Carrboro for a new library, continuing the work of our Affordable Housing Task Force and identifying ways to develop synergy around the opening of our first hotel in Carrboro. DTH: How would you change or improve on cooperation between Carrboro and Chapel Hill/Orange County? LL: As an Orange County elected official, I have had

DAILY TAR HEEL: Why are you running for mayor of Carrboro? LYDIA LAVELLE: I think Mark (Chilton) has done a wonderful job as mayor. When I learned that he would not be seeking re-election, I started to consider the possibility of running for the position. Several members of the

DTH: Are there any parts of

LL: Mark has highlighted transportation alternatives as one of his priorities for many years, as have I. I would promote these by continuing to build our sidewalk network, supporting our transit system and keeping Carrboro the most bicycle-friendly town in North Carolina. Additionally, I admire Marks commitment to social justice issues, and I hope that

This cooperation is key not only at the elected level, but at the managerial level as well. I believe with open communication and shared goals, we can work together to tackle issues that affect all of us. We may not agree on every solution to every problem, nor should we, but we should have open, respectful dialogue about issues that affect all of us.

expansion in the near future?

DTH: How do you think Carrboro needs to approach economic development and

LL: Carefully. Carrboro is well-loved because we have been doing things right, and we need to be careful not to lose our identity with development and expansion. That being said, economic development is the way to increase our tax base, through property and sales taxes. One specific example I am excited about is the towns newly acquired property located at 203 S. Greensboro St. , currently used for parking. This property represents an opportunity for some type of public-private partnership, and I look forward to discussing the various options we can consider for this prime piece of real estate.

Student leaders ASG unveils rst-ever strategic plan gear up for fall semester
By Sarah Brown

Members of Student Congress have met twice this summer.

By Leeann Chen

At the second Student Congress meeting of the summer Tuesday, Student Body President Christy Lambden announced one step being taken to address the Universitys handling of sexual assault cases. He said the Sexual Assault Task Force reviewing UNCs policies is now holding all-day meetings every Wednesday. Lambden invited Student Congress members to attend and get involved in the discussion. Lambden said the student sexual assault task force created last year has also been active in reviewing the Universitys policies. Last spring semester, the student task force came out with 27 recommendations in three weeks for amending sexual assault policies on campus, he said. Speaker of Student Congress Connor Brady said he is ready to address sexual assault policies in the upcoming school year. Brady said Congress will also be updating the Honor System during the year, though specifics about the changes have not yet been discussed. He said Congress is required to meet twice over the summer once during each session though it doesnt set an agenda for the school year until the first congressional meeting at the start of the year. Student Congress has also been working on other projects over the summer:

Members have requested funding for Embody Carolina, an eating disorder awareness group. The have also submitted a funding request to pay Student Congress clerks who worked in the spring semester. Committee chairs and Brady have been preparing for FallFest. In the fall, Student Congress will also be selescting new appointments. The application deadline for an appointed position in Student Congress is Aug. 30 at 5 p.m. Brady said he expects new members to join Student Congress once the new school year begins in the fall. I know we have some seats open, so first-year students will be running in those districts, he said. Specifically the South Campus area Hinton James and Ehringhaus.

At last week's meeting of the UNC-system Association of Student Governments, Board of Governors Chairman Peter Hans came to the members with a challenge. You've got to focus, put all political stuff aside and just get to work on it, Hans told the assembly of ASG delegates in Chapel Hill. If I don't know what your agenda is other than internal debate, I can't really help you. Then (board members) don't listen to students as much I'll put it frankly. Hans was firm, but new ASG President Robert Nunnery said hes making headway to prove his administration is up to the task. During ASG's two-day gathering, the first of the academic year, Nunnery unveiled a preliminary draft of a oneyear strategic plan for ASG. Highlighted goals include streamlining communication among delegates, increasing meeting attendance and ensuring paid officers are working a minimum number of hours each week. Nunnery said the plan a key part of his campaign plat-

form focuses on transforming talk into action. (Hans' speech) was an accurate reflection of where the association is, Nunnery said. We have to get things done. ASG has been historically criticized for a lack of effectiveness and a reputation for petty politics, though nearly 60 percent of UNC-CH students voted last year to remain part of the organization. Nunnery said his plan, slated to be done next month, will identify specific growth goals namely how ASG can best use its budget, funded by a $1 fee from every system student. He said hell seek board members' opinions and keep them up-to-date on ASG's agenda, which in the fall will focus on tuition discussions. The N.C. General Assembly is expected to pass a state budget next week, which will likely include significant systemwide budget cuts and tuition hikes for out-of-state students. UNC-CH Student Body President Christy Lambden

said he is cautiously optimistic about ASGs new vision, but that it remains to be seen whether the plan will provide the necessary fixes. I don't think we've seen enough yet to say that has or has not happened, he said. Lambden said one of his ASG goals is to change representation to a proportional system. Each campus has four delegates in the organization meaning UNC-CH has the same number as UNC School of the Arts, for example, despite an undergraduate population nearly 25 times larger. Despite troubles, Nunnery said ASG has the potential to foster tangible change on a state and campus level. He said he will strive to continue ASG's advocacy even when the General Assembly is out of session, something he said has been lacking in previous administrations. Part of his plan includes inviting elected officials to campuses in the fall to engage directly with students about

higher education, he said. If we truly believe what's happening in Raleigh is bad, we have to work year round.

Sheraton restaurant turns Southern

Last month, Shulas 347, a steakhouse franchise located in the Sheraton Hotel on Europa Drive, was converted to Carolina 1663 an independent restaurant featuring Southern cuisine. Executive Chef Ches McLane said the change came after declining sales, which he blamed on a formal atmosphere and higher price range. We just werent getting the support from the community, he said.It was a specialoccasion restaurant. He said he thinks people in Chapel Hill might be less receptive to franchise restaurants, and that contributed to low sales. McLane said prices at Carolina 1663 range from about $12 to $26. Specialties include Southern fare such as chicken and dumplings, shrimp and grits and fried chicken breasts. McLane said the restaurant has maintained the Shulas wait staff. He said now that staff is no longer subject to franchise rules, the restaurant will be a more casual place for employees. Our servers get to be more at home, he said. Theyre all very excited. Carolina 1663 is open for lunch every day and for dinner Monday through Saturday. The restaurant is open from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Sunday for dinner.

Korean bistro brings array of choices

Imagine a buffet-style restaurant where customers choose from a variety of ingredients and mix them together. Thats the basic idea behind the Korean dish Bibimbap, which literally means mixed rice, and the specialty at Mixed Casual Korean Bistro, which opened Friday at 1404 E. Franklin St. Its a similar concept to Chipotle, owner Jimmy Kim said. To order, customers choose what types of rice, vegetables, proteins and sauces they want in their Bibimbap. They also have the option of adding a fried egg on top for an extra 50 cents. It does give it a different texture and taste, Kim said. The menu also features Jeon Korean pancakes, marinated wings and glass noodles. The official grand opening was Monday, and Kim said so far, customers have given his restaurant positive reviews. People have given me great feedback and said everything tastes very fresh, he said. One customer came in three times. Mixed is open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. every day. All items cost less than $10.

Korchipi rebrands, keeps Korean theme

Korchipi Korean Chicken and Pizza is the latest name to leave the storefront at 163 E. Franklin St. with the restaurants rebranding as Chopsticks and More. In May, new owner Sharon Huh took over the restaurant, deciding the menu should shift from pizza and chicken dishes with a Korean twist to more traditional Korean food. We offer a lot more, she said, while adding that some of the chicken items from Korchipi would be kept, and the prices would be similar. The space occupied by Chopsticks and More has seen a variety of tenants pass through in the last two years. In 2012, Tomato Jakes Pizzeria took over the space after the closing of the longopen Franklin Street Pizza and Pasta, which had been a favorite among students. But Tomato Jakes closed its doors in December to make way for another pizza restaurant the nowrebranded Korchipi. Huh said business has been slow this summer due to a lack of students, but said she thinks that will change. She added she is not worried about competition from newly opened Mixed Casual Korean Bistro. Distance-wise, we are kind of far away, she said. The restaurants current hours are 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Saturday.

learned with secondhand materials and desks sent over when the white Chapel Hill schools were done with them. I dont ever recall getting a new book, he said. But he said what Northside lacked in resources, it made up for in high-quality teachers. The employment opportunities for African-Americans at that time were limited you could be a teacher or you could be a preacher, he said. So as a result, we had some of the best educators. Our teachers felt like every child could learn. In seventh grade, Masons teacher used a students interest in baseball to improve his math grades. She got the paper and started talking with him about the players and the batting averages, he said. And she asked him, Well how do you think they come up with these averages? That boy went on to be one of the best statisticians at Lincoln High. said. I wasnt fearful for the integration part, I was just fearful because I didn't know people. Atwater gradually adjusted to the new school and made friends. I think that after everybody got used to this was how it was going to be, they were OK with it, she said. Ive learned this as I got older: Kids dont have any problem with change. But she said older students moving to Chapel Hill High School did not have as easy a time. Masons younger brother was among the first group of black students to attend the integrated high school. When he was at Chapel Hill High with other people, he looked around and saw that many experiences that I had were missing, he said. Mason and Foster both said extracurricular opportunities for black students were severely limited in activities like cheerleading, band, choir and sports, even though such programs at Lincoln High were award-winning and popular. After Lincoln and Northside were closed, many of the awards students at those schools won were put in storage, lost or even discarded. While they said physical altercations were rare, black students dealt with more subtle put-downs, like being ignored by teachers in class. We didnt realize how cheated they felt, Foster said. The children that went to Jones said this guideline change is just one of many changes that have been made on Dukes campus in regard to sexual assault. She said student efforts were also successful in repealing Dukes statute of limitations on reporting cases, among other things. Previously, complainants of sexual assault had just one year to report the incident. Hurt said UNC has no limitations on when students can report assault cases. She said the task force will continue work this week. We can highlight our questions about where we think things should be going and trying to make sure were building a process moving forward that serves all of campus very well.

But he said the litigation gives the ACLU a means of continuing the marriage equality conversation in North Carolina, a state where residents views of gay marriage remains mixed. We believe we have a very, very strong case, he said. the white school sacrificed a lot.

opening of the new school is a time to reflect on the past.

Returning to Northside
Since the schools closure, alumni, activists, historians and artists in Chapel Hill have worked to preserve the history of Northside Elementary. At the Marian Cheek Jackson Center, volunteers have been recording the stories of alumni for years. Weve conducted over 200 oral histories of residents and neighbors primarily on the incredible African-American history of Chapel Hill, said Hudson Vaughan, the centers associate director, in an email. Kathy Williams, a lecturer in UNCs department of dramatic art, worked with N.C. activist group Hidden Voices to produce a theatrical piece on the Northside neighborhood in 2008. Research for the play included interviews with dozens of residents, including Northside Elementary alumni. Folks who grew up in Northside and grew up going to that school ... were very connected and felt a great deal of pride and love, Williams said. Ive never had a theatrical experience quite like that. Williams said a new school will bring with it a stronger sense of community. I think whenever you have a neighborhood school and that brings in families and parents and their events, that does foster that feeling of community, she said. Michelle Brownstein,

A neighborhood school
Every morning before school, Esphur Fosters mother would light a fire to warm their house in the Northside neighborhood, then called Pottersfield. Foster, along with her brother and sister, would wash up, eat lunch and walk to school, a trip that took less than five minutes. Foster attended the school from 1945 to 1951 for grades one through six. Now 73 and still a Chapel Hill resident, Foster said she remembers her years at Northside as happy ones. I didnt have anything to compare it with, so I only have fond memories of it, she said. I have many memories of safety and a close-knit community. Foster said the school was the heart of the neighborhood, often serving as a place for community events. One of Fosters schoolmates was David Mason, who now serves as president of the OCTS-Lincoln High-Northside Alumni Association. He attended the school starting in 1949, by which time overcrowding had forced administrators to split the school day into two shifts younger students in the morning and upperclassmen in the afternoon. Mason said students at Northside worked and

The path to integration

Kathy Atwaters first time riding the bus to school came in 1967, when she was redistricted to Glenwood Elementary School. Because Glenwood was previously an all-white school, Atwater knew only one person in her new class. Voluntary integration happened when I was in the third grade, but my parents wanted me to stay at Northside. Then, mandatory integration started, Atwater al assault as a serious issue. Duke, like many campuses, has a huge problem with sexual assault, she said. Its not a problem that many people want to talk about, which often gives schools and administrators an incentive to sweep it under the rug. Christy Lambden, UNCs student body president, said looking to other campuses may be helpful in addressing UNCs sexual assault policies. Ultimately, the fix for those problems is going to happen here on campus, he said. That being said, I think that there is valuable knowledge that can be gained from talking to other campuses, trying to figure out how exactly their sexual assault policies sit within their framework. guardians for their children without a legal marriage. N.C. Attorney General Roy Cooper announced last week he would not oppose amending the lawsuit to include Amendment One claims. He would defend both the constitutional gay marriage ban and the current state law in court if the challenge came to fruition. Terri Phoenix, executive director of UNCs LGBTQ Center, said a successful ACLU lawsuit could lead to professional and personal gains for many N.C. families, like Phoenixs. Because Phoenixs wife is the biological mother of their child, she is the only legal parent on paper, Phoenix said. Because N.C. does not recognize our relationship, my child is just a kid that lives in my house, and I have no parental rights whatsoever to that child, Phoenix said. ACLU lawyers are now waiting for a U.S. Middle

chairwoman of the CHCCS Board of Education, said preserving the character of the neighborhood was a priority for school officials. She noted that the opening of the new school marked the first time children in the neighborhood would be able to walk to school since the closing of the old Northside Elementary. She said the historical displays in the new school, including the cornerstone as well as memorabilia, photographs and a timeline that will accompany it, were an important part of Thomas a felon with a lengthy criminal record, who is also awaiting trial for drug and gun charges unrelated to Hairston rented the car for him. In the report, Hairston also stated he was a recreational drug user, but he said he had not smoked any marijuana on the night of the arrest.

the schools design. When Northside opens next month, nearly 500 children will be in attendance. And Foster said while she's just happy to see children back in the neighborhood, she thinks remembering the history of segregation should be a critical part of their education. Theres only one race, and thats the human race, and all that other stuff about ethnicity you just build up in your mind, she said. God believes in diversity. Thats why he made us the way he did. Other issues have been written about recently that are disturbing and bother me deeply, Williams said. Our basketball program is based on great ideals and these issues are embarrassing. These are not common in my 10 years as head coach at UNC and they will all be dealt with harshly and appropriately at the correct time to ensure that our program will not be compromised.

or disdain, he said. Holning Lau, president of the ACLU of North Carolina and a UNC law professor, said Kennedys emphasis on the potential harms and humiliation caused to children by discrimination against their gay parents will bolster the ACLUs argument. What weve seen in other states is, when theyve tried to go to court to defend a samesex marriage ban, they often argue that legalizing same-sex marriage is bad for children, Lau said. But Justice Kennedys discussion about children is applicable and very clearly so to the six families in this case.

Congress must act on student loans now
TO THE EDITOR: Congress failure on student loans is symptomatic of a deeper problem with the prioritization of higher education and investment in infrastructure. And the disagreement over loan interest rates only draws attention to one of many facets of the student loan issue. First, these loans are unique. Auto, home, personal and credit card loans can be discharged through bankruptcy, but not student loans. Imagine defaulting on a loan, going through bankruptcy and destroying your credit and still having to repay your student loans. The very loans that are meant to be an investment in our countrys future are those for which the default terms are most severe. If Congress plans to retroactively reduce the rates on federal subsidized loans, it should also consider reducing these harsh penalties. Second, compounding these severe consequences is the rate of default on student loans. The Department of Education claims default rates are 9.1 percent two years out of college and 13.1 three years out, but this omits the likely far higher rates over the loans lifetime. Third, student loan rates are arbitrary. The 3.4- and 6.8-percent rates are benchmarks against nothing, as students usually have little to no credit history and assets. But this also means the rate could be anything. Thus, Congress has a prime opportunity to invest in Americas future and reduce the overall cost of higher education by charging little to no interest on student loans which Australia and the United Kingdom each do; in pretty much every other developed country higher education is funded by the state while also staying true to American ideals of personal responsibility and individualism. If Congress can do nothing to mitigate the rapidly increasing costs of higher education, it should at least take this opportunity to give students a chance to decrease the number of student loan defaults that often ruin lives and invest in us: Americas future.

ts hard not to be overwhelmed walking into the White House. Just to think, I was standing in the building the aliens blew up in Independence Day. But if I could be serious for a moment ... OK, Im done. Anyhow, my path to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. is, in many ways, similar to our presidents. We both were raised by single parents who worked hard, struggled financially and hid our Kenyan birth. Yes, our story is as American as it gets. When I got back to the office, I told my boss how hard it would have been for my high school teachers to imagine the kid they knew sitting in the White House press room during a briefing, or in the East Room, covering not one, but two U.S. presidents. I was a C student, I said. The truth is, I was being generous. My dad paid me for Cs. Even now, school isnt always my strong suit. In a newswriting course, my professor, Keith King, gave one of my stories a score far below an F (AP style is the bane of my GPA) but wrote, If you ever actually make it through this course, youll do great things. He was the first one I tweeted as I watched Press Secretary Jay Carney hold open court. The fact was, despite my own best efforts, his prediction was right. Where else but America could a guy like me end up sitting yards away from the Oval Office with the best journalists in the country? Let me revise. How about, Where else but America could a guy like me end up sitting yards away from the Oval Office with people who are also journalists in the country? That part was a little disheartening. These people had reached the pinnacle the room where countless thousands of us picture ourselves grilling the most powerful people in the world. Speaking truth to power. And what did they spend an hour asking about? ... George Zimmerman. With a nation at war, a government spying on its own citizens and a Middle East threatening to unravel, dont they realize Justin Bieber peed in a mop bucket?! So the day was a mixed bag. I also confirmed Im a horrible networker. Next to me, a freelance photographer with gold teeth was handing out his business cards to everyone in the White House, whether they wanted it or not. In Da House Photography, they read. If I ever want to get back in the American mecca, I guess I'll need to brush up on my George Zimmerman, polish my brand and save up for gold teeth. But no matter how it turns out, though, thanks in part to a certain professor, Ive already done some great things. (Tissue here if you need it.) This piece originally ran as a blog post in the Scripps Howard Foundation Wire.

Do away with rank

Class rank turns education into a competition.

eaders in Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools want class rank taken off student transcripts, and they should have the freedom to do it. The State Board of Education denied their request to do so last year, but next time it should recognize the districts right to do whats best for its kids.

Emphasizing class rank encourages the wrong behaviors in high school. Trying to perform well in school is obviously important, but ranking students only causes already motivated students to be more competitive. And high school is for exploring interests and developing skills, not competing for better GPAs. Meanwhile, disinterested students are not going to be inspired to achieve by an empty academic ranking.

Even if they commit themselves to academics and college admissions later in high school, their weakened class rank can unfairly jeopardize their chances in university admissions. Other factors such as essays, extracurricular involvement, actual classes taken and leadership experience are far more important. CHCCS should be encouraged to make this change for its kids.

Put UNC system first

he state community college system has made impressive strides forward with its strategic plan, and the institutions deserve more funds to support that growth. But when legislators approve a two-year state budget, they should not disadvantage the UNC system in favor of community colleges, the cheaper option. A proposal in the N.C.


Community college funding shouldnt take from system.

House of Representatives budget would create an N.C. Guaranteed Admission Program, directing some UNC-system applicants to community college for two years in return for admission as juniors to their choice of system school. The legislature would transfer $4.5 million from the UNC system to community colleges to fund the initiative in 2014-15. This is an effective way to lower the cost of of higher education, but House members decision

to transfer, not award, money is troubling, and it sets a potential standard for state appropriations to become a competition. The N.C. GAP proposal is vague, too. Its unclear how students would be chosen and how enrollment would change in both systems. The General Assembly should vote against the N.C. GAP in its current, ambiguous form. When one public education sector needs additional finances, other sectors should not be gutted in the process.

Dont forget Trayvon yet

The race question in the Zimmerman trial demands an answer.
he trial of George Zimmerman will go down as one of the most controversial cases in the last decade. And no matter the outcome, we cannot refute this as a tragic moment. Zimmerman, regardless of intent or necessity, ended a teenagers life. And Trayvon Martins family wishes he were still with them today. While I feel no sympathy for Zimmerman, I believe we should not react with hatred or violence toward him or anyone. This mindset bears no resolution; it resurrects no bodies and only incites more misunderstanding. And while no one can truly ascertain if Zimmermans actions that night were motivated by racial prejudice or if race significantly affected the trial, race definitely has a place in our discussion. The media has been rightly accused of divisively portraying Zimmerman as a white

man (instead of a multiracial American of white and Peruvian descent). Some acknowledged this, but there were still clearly chosen sides. Those on Zimmermans side were largely from white and conservative backgrounds, while Trayvons team included mostly minorities and more liberal whites. (I'm all ears to be proven wrong.) Excluding the blatant racists on social media throwing slurs, invoking stereotypes and generalizations, another

argument was thrown against defenders of Trayvon: Why do (black) people make this about race? Its not. How are you so certain? For African-American males and other minorities, I believe a defensive stance is justified after so many years of systematic oppression. The ugly truth behind this whole case is that we are not in a post-racial America. The topic of racism is difficult, but we do not get rid of the problem by denying its existence. We cant be afraid to have this dialogue. Some say racism is like a hydra, that we often cut off its head, only to reveal more heads. Weve got to come up with a better way to combat it; weve assumed it dead too many times. We should recognize our differences and not fear each other because of them. Without fear, we can embrace a willingness to understand and end injustice everywhere.

Immoral afternoon
State Republicans held their own protest this week in response to continued Moral Monday demonstrations, called Thankful Tuesday so basically Thanksgiving. By which I mean full of old, outspoken white people youd forgotten existed. Its nice to hear an opposing opinion, but my guess is theyre just hired agitators.

Drop in the bucket

Cheeky pop star Justin Bieber apologized to Bill Clinton this week after a video surfaced of Bieber peeing in a mop bucket and badmouthing the former president. Clinton shrugged it off, but Im thinking the janitor had a rougher night. The good news? TMZ finally has enough footage to make celebrity urination its own category.

Faced with rapidly disintegrating civil liberties, institutionalized racism and violent unrest worldwide, our only healthy reaction can be to drown ourselves in a SyFy channel original movie about a blazing whirlwind full of flying sharks wreaking bloody havoc on Los Angeles. And thats just what we did this weekend cope.

Rights? What rights?

Russian President Vladimir Putin recently passed a law calling for the arrest of any person openly gay or supportive of gay rights so you might want to tame that wardrobe if youre considering a trip. Criminalizing sexuality and opinions leaves smiles, pastels, individuality, dialogue and self-worth only so far away from restriction.
