accused in the March 2008 murder of 22-year-old Carson. Judge Allen Baddour ruled that some key witnesses won’t be allowed in the courtroom during the trial. Carson’s parents, who might be called as witnesses, will be allowed in the courtroom. District Attorney Jim Woodall said that qualification was merely a precaution. “It’s doubtful her parents would be called,” Woodall said. Baddour also said he will allow

Laurence Alvin Lovette Jr., the man prosecutors say killed former student body president Eve Carson, pleaded not guilty on counts of first-degree murder, armed robbery, felony larceny and first-degree kidnapping, charges he will face when his case comes to trial Nov. 28. Lovette’s formal charges were read in Orange County District Court on Thursday, a required step before the trial. Lovette is the second man

for individual juror selection in an effort to ensure fairness and speed in jury selection, but he said he reserves the right to monitor that decision. The case’s extensive pretrial coverage prompted the defense to ask for individual selection. Woodall said he expects jury selection to take four to five days after it begins Nov. 29. Prosecutors say Lovette and Demario James Atwater kidnapped Carson from her home. They drove Carson in her Toyota Highlander to a bank and withdrew money from her account, authorities say. Officials say they then shot Carson five times in a neighborhood off East Franklin Street. Atwater pleaded guilty to the murder and other charges tied to

the killing and has been sentenced to life in prison. He faced the death penalty if found guilty in court instead of pleading guilty. Lovette was 17 at the time of the murder and can’t receive the death penalty. The prosecution and defense attorney Karen Bethea-Shields disagreed about which autopsy photos and photos from the scene should be shown in court. The defense contested that certain photos are not necessary and could create prejudice against Lovette, but Woodall said some are essential to demonstrate the layout of the scene where Carson was found. “I know these are difficult photos to look at,” Woodall said.

Trustees pass tuition hikes
The board approved a proposal to increase tuition by 15.6 percent.
By Edward Pickup
Staff Writer

Despite vehement student opposition, UNC administrators approved Thursday a 15.6 percent tuition hike proposal for in-state students. With the exception of Student Body President Mary Cooper, the UNC Board of Trustees voted unanimously to approve the proposal that would increase in-state students’ tuition by $2,800 during the next five years. Cooper asked the board to postpone the decision until December. She said a delay would help students and administrators work together to create a more modest proposal. But her motion to delay the vote failed. Administrators supported the significant tuition hike, saying it was the only way to improve the

University’s faculty retention rates. $ $ During the last two years, TUITION more than 50 percent of UNC faculty members who have received offers from other institutions chose to leave. Students speaking at the board meeting said the tuition hike would diminish the University’s ability to attract talented and diverse students. “If we raise tuition we are going to lose students,” said junior Cornell Jordan, who spoke on behalf of students at the meeting. “What is a faculty member without a diverse group of students?” Bruce Carney, executive vice chancellor and provost, said tuition hikes will not be the only avenue administrators will explore in an attempt to offset budget cuts. “We have a lot to do. We are not asking students to do all of this themselves,” he said. “We will cer$ $ $

Faculty retention was key in hikes
departments are still feeling the effects of a three-year pay freeze.
By Amelia Nitz and Devyn McDonald

BLACKSBURG, Va. —Lane Stadium and Ryan Houston have history. As a freshman, Houston fumbled the ball at the goal line in a 17-10 loss to the Hokies. Two years ago Ryan Houston pounded the ball 20 yards against the Hokies’ defense to set up North Carolina’s game-winning field goal. And in Thursday’s 24-21 loss, Lane Stadium got the best of him again. “I pride myself on holding onto the ball,” an emotional Houston said. “For me to lose the ball is unreal for me. The last time I remember fumbling was when I was here my freshman year right on that same goal line. “It just brought back bad memories.” After scoring first Thursday and forcing an ensuing turn-

over on downs, UNC’s offense drove the ball to the 5-yard line with a chance to take a two-possession lead. Instead, Houston fumbled the ball inside the 5-yard line, and the Hokies took over and scored 24 unanswered points. That play changed the game. UNC’s offense wasn’t on the field for the next nine minutes, and those nine minutes were likely longer for Houston than anyone else. He felt it. “This is my last time here,” Houston said. “Two years ago when we came up here on a Thursday and we kicked butt. We could have done the same thing today, and I just feel like I just didn’t do the best I could today to put the team in the best position to win.” North Carolina was in position to win after a quick start, though. The Tar Heels scored faster than they had all season, and

“Students and families are our last resort for revenue. We have, unfortunately, reached the point of last resort.”
holden Thorp, Unc chancellor
chancellor and provost, said the expected $15 million increase in tuition revenue will make faculty more hopeful for the future. “The University’s future is more than courses,” Carney told the board. “It is faculty.” But plans to lobby for faculty pay increases might not pay off. Rep. Hugh Blackwell, R-Burke, who is co-chairman of the N.C. House Appropriations Subcommittee on Education, said a pay increase for UNC faculty is out of the question. “I don’t think we will give increases to UNC-Chapel Hill, when we don’t give increases to anybody else in the state. I don’t think the legislature is going to play favorites,” he said. “The faculty at Chapel Hill are already among some of the highest people paid in the state.”

For administrators and trustees, the decision to propose increasing tuition by 15.6 percent for in-state students came down to the financial needs of faculty, whose salaries have been frozen for three years. UNC administrators have long stressed the dire situation of departments that find their faculty leaving for other schools. For trustees, that concern outweighed concerns for the future of the University’s affordability. A proposal by Student Body President Mary Cooper to postpone the Board of Trustees’ decision to December was voted down after Chancellor Holden Thorp said administrators would need the time to lobby the state legislature for salary increases. “Students and families are our last resort for revenue,” Thorp told trustees. “We have, unfortunately, reached the point of last resort.” Bruce Carney, executive vice

Juvenile joyriding
h, Florida. Why must you fail at everything? Deciding that driving is just too fun of an activity to wait 16 years for — and that legally obtaining a vehicle is just too hard — a 10-year-old elementary school student broke into an impound lot in Eatonville, Fla., Wednesday and stole a pickup truck. Authorities claim the boy scaled a 10-foot-high chain-link fence at around 3 p.m. Wednesday, climbed into a white pickup truck and drove right through the fence and onto the street. No word on how he got the keys. After a witness informed police of the theft, the boy was chased by authorities for several blocks before crashing into a light pole. The crash caused an electric wire to fall on a nearby house, setting it on fire. There were no serious injuries. After trying to run from police, the boy was finally brought down. The lesson here is clear, kids: real life doesn’t work like “Grand Theft Auto.”
NOTED. Well, at least he was telling the truth. Kevin Daly, 22, of Coram, N.Y., was out driving early Thursday morning when he crashed into a police cruiser that was on patrol for drunk drivers. Needless to say, Daly was just the kind of driver the officer was looking for. No word on whether Daly took a field sobriety test, but he may not have needed to. His T-shirt read, “I’m a drunk.” QUOTED. “The more toppings a man has on his pizza, I believe the more manly he is … Because the more manly man is not afraid of abundance.” — Herman Cain, former CEO of Godfather’s Pizza. Put aside, for a moment, the thought that a pizza chain executive could be our next president. That is not important. What is important is that cheese pizza is for sissies.

UNC system shifts focus to online
Universities seek to consolidate programs through online courses.
By Daniel Wiser
Assistant State & National Editor

The UNC system’s push to consolidate and streamline universities’ online education programs might still be in its early stages, but administrators already have one model to follow — an emerging foreign language consortium. A report presented at the UNC-system Board of Governors meeting last week by Jim Woodward, former chancellor of UNC-Charlotte and North Carolina State University, recommended universities develop a system-wide structure for online courses to cut costs during a tough budgetary climate. Woodward said the system

should utilize its foreign language consortium as a pilot program before implementing the new online structure. Foreign language department chairmen from schools across the system met in May and recommended the formation of a UNC Foreign Language Assembly, a consortium that would merge foreign language programs struggling to attract students with more successful programs through online courses. William Andrews, senior associate dean for fine arts and humanities at UNC-CH, said the University is discussing options for offering Portuguese courses at other institutions that lack the program. The pilot program represents an opportunity for campus collaboration, said Alisa Chapman, associate vice president for academic planning and universityschool programs for the system.

“It’s really a wonderful opportunity that we have these individuals coming together to think about how we might expand access and at the same time be more efficient,” she said. Students who attempt to register for online courses often fail to clear the bureaucratic hurdles set in place by other universities’ admissions departments, according to Woodward’s report. He recommended that the pilot program develop an online course pool and system-wide registration process available for students at each campus. Online courses could also expand beyond the state’s borders to accommodate international students and generate revenue for universities, said Phil Dixon, a member of the board. For example, 70 million Chinese students have expressed interest in taking an online course before participating in an exchange program.

Dixon said universities could save millions from an online course pool by avoiding the construction of costly new schools. The UNC system has sustained more than $1 billion in state funding cuts during the last five years. “We’re beyond the point now where we can continue to build brick and mortar,” he said. But Andrews said cost savings shouldn’t necessarily be a priority for campuses interested in expanding online education. “We shouldn’t be starting out thinking the first thing is to figure out how we can save a dollar,” he said. “The first thing we should consider is how would this technology, how would these circumstances be a benefit to our mission.” Universities would also need to determine how tuition revenue would be shared among a student’s home institution and the campus offering the online course, he said.

Such logistical issues will be a primary focus of the system’s new director of online services, a position administrators will fill by March, Chapman said. The online director will also examine efforts by other university systems to increase their scale of online services. The University of California system has discussed developing 25 to 40 more online courses, while the University System of Georgia launched a system-wide registration tool for online courses this spring. Board Chairwoman Hannah Gage said the position will require an individual with a long-term vision for instruction. “We want a bold thinker, someone that can … not only coordinate what we have and do better with e-learning,” she said, but also help us design the architecture of the future.” Contact the State & National Editor at

Occupy Chapel Hill took to the streets again Thursday night, less than a week after seven protesters were arrested during what many believed to be an overly aggressive police raid. More than 50 protesters marched down Franklin and Rosemary streets, walking in solidarity with the seven protesters who were arrested in Sunday’s raid for breaking into the former Yates Motor Company building on West Franklin Street. The seven defendants pled not guilty to misdemeanor charges of breaking and entering in Orange County District Court earlier that morning. The defendants, Ellen Crawford, 23, of Richmond, Va.; Kassandra Ofray, 21, of Pittsboro; Jack Ryan Jarrell, 24, and David Maliken, 24, of Carrboro; and Eva Jones, 22, Daniel Regenscheit, 27, and Monica Ganguly, 29, of Chapel Hill, will reappear in court Jan. 30. Outside the courthouse, a group of about 10 people held signs that condemned the use of force by the Chapel Hill Police Department in the raid. The department has been criticized for its use of forceful tactics to break up the gathering last Sunday. Jose Hernandez, who was holding a sign that read “CHPD: Defy Unjust Orders Now,” said the group protesting outside the courthouse was there to support the seven defendants. “We’re protesting the unnecessary use of force by the Chapel Hill Police against the people inside,” Hernandez said. Judge Lunsford Long also lifted the defendants’ restriction from being on Franklin Street, which was put in place after the raid Sunday. The new order bans the defendant’s presence within 50 feet of the former Yates building, with the exception that they can drive by in a motor vehicle. The Thursday night walk, which lasted about 30 minutes, was monitored by at least four police escorts who helped stop traffic. Though many came out to support the defendants, some Occupy Chapel Hill members say the arrests have created internal dissent among those who wanted to keep the protests peaceful and legal. During a Sunday night march protesting the police raid and arrests that day, members chanted criticisms of law enforcement. But similar chants were quickly hushed in Thursday’s march. The group of occupiers also collectively agreed to not destroy public property. Heather Epes, a Carrboro resident, said the raid and

dth/allison russell Protesters of the Occupy Chapel Hill movement marched down Franklin Street toward Greenbridge Thursday night.

arrests on Sunday gave the group a chance to reevaluate their goals and tactics. “We had this very jarring thing happen,” she said. “We’ve had a chance to take a big breath.” She said she will still support the occupation. “In some ways, I feel I have been occupying my whole life,” she said. And many Occupy Chapel Hill members say the police controversy has increased community support. Cammie Bellamy, a sophomore journalism major,

who said she has been involved with Occupy Chapel Hill since protesters began occupying the Peace and Justice Plaza in Chapel Hill on Oct. 15, said the movement has inspired her. “I think this is the biggest, most visible movement of my lifetime,” she said.

A UNC student charged with robbing a SunTrust Bank in Apex on Nov. 7 is in a New Jersey jail after turning himself in. Gordon Miller Goodwin, 22, was arrested Saturday at 11 p.m. in the casino at the Borgata Hotel in Atlantic City, a detective with Atlantic City police said Thursday. Police say Goodwin robbed a SunTrust Bank inside the Kroger supermarket off U.S. Highway 64. After the robbery, the Apex Police Department issued a warrant for Goodwin’s arrest. Police said Goodwin passed a note to the teller at the SunTrust Bank demanding money. The teller was 45-year-old Melissa Cooper. Goodwin took $4,500 from the bank, according to the police report. The police report lists the robbery as armed. Capt. Ann Stephens of Apex police said Goodwin did not possess a firearm during the robbery. Goodwin is now in jail at the Atlantic County Jail in New Jersey, waiting for transportation back to North Carolina. Diana Goodwin, Gordon Goodwin’s mother, said she received a phone call from him Saturday night. “He did call me, but it was his choice to turn himself in to the police,” she said. “We’re going one day at a time.” Goodwin’s stepmother, Christine Goodwin, said she was shocked at the arrest. “We never (thought) Gordon could do such a thing,” she said. “Gordon is a good kid. It’s just horrible.” Department of Public Safety spokesman Randy Young said any decision regarding Goodwin’s status as a student will be handled through the Honor Court.

Carrboro: love is in the air
Carrboro is a finalist to be the location of the reality show ‘Lovetown.’
By Jenny Surane
Staff Writer

Q&A with Tony Perucci
Tony Perucci, a UNC performance studies professor, is directing The Performance Collective’s current show, “Eating Animals,” based on the novel of the same name by Jonathan Safran Foer. The book, which was the summer reading selection for both UNC and Duke University, discusses the issues associated with the contemporary factory farming industry. Staff writer Sarah Haderbache spoke with Perucci about the show and the ethics of eating animals.

Carrboro hopes to prove it is ready to show some love. The Oprah Winfrey Network and the BBC Network have selected the town as a finalist for the location of their reality show “Lovetown, USA,” in which professional matchmakers will visit for 30 days to match up local singles. A BBC production crew will visit on Friday to hold a photo shoot at Town Commons to capture the essence of the community. Annette Stone, Carrboro’s economic and community development director, said the show’s producers were looking for a small town with a scenic location and a strong sense of community. She said she hopes everyone will come out and participate. “We want everyone to come out and be themselves, and show their character,” Stone said. Mayor Mark Chilton encouraged residents to come to the photo shoot and be creative.

“Bring your hula hoop, djembe, skateboard or whatever,” he said. “Help us celebrate the diversity of our community.” Anyone who has a Carrboro mailing address — even if the person is a student — is eligible and encouraged to apply to be on the show. Applications are already being accepted, though producers have yet to decide if Carrboro will be a “Lovetown.” Residents are pushing to make sure the town chosen to host the show. Carrboro musician Billy Sugarfix wrote a rap song about the unique places in Carrboro, which was used in the town’s video application for the show. Others explained that the town would fit the show’s vision. “This is the ideal community. We are a Southern, yet progressive little town,” said resident Keith Erskine. Kristin Esterley, another Carrboro resident, said the town’s diversity will help it stand out. “I definitely think Carrboro has the character they want,” Esterley said. “There are so many different kinds of people here.” But locals are working to bring the show to town in hopes that it will do more than spice up their

love lives. Stone said she feels the show will bring the town the national attention it deserves. “Hopefully, it will generate tourism, and maybe some of those tourists will come back and become residents,” she said. Chilton said he also anticipates the show will benefit Carrboro and Chapel Hill restaurants and hotels. And Sugarfix hopes it will bring attention to the art scene. “This show could do a lot for local artists,” he said. He said the town is filled with local artist’s work, so filming would likely include it. “The sound track could come entirely from local acts,” Sugarfix said. “It would be a quality sound track.” Contact the City Editor at

dAILY TAR heeL: Why did you decide to adapt “Eating Animals” into a performance piece?
Performance Collective does very politically focused work, so as soon as this book was announced as the summer reading book, I had the idea to do the project. It was the perfect kind of piece for us because it’s about a very complicated and thorny political and ethical issue. It’s not one that has a simple right or wrong position.

TP: And I wanted it to challenge my own positions. I am not a vegetarian. But I am very thoughtful about what I do buy, and eat and cook. Ever since I was a college student, I had a deep suspicion that there was something ethically suspicious about eating meat. So I did what most of us do: I just didn’t think about it. dTh: How did the show come together? TP: It was challenging. Parts of the book, as Foer has written them, are friendly to an adaptation because as he says, the way we justify eating factory-farmed meat is the story we tell about what we eat. It’s also why it’s hard to give up eating meat because eating practices are so bound up with the stories we tell about our culture. Many of the stories of our childhood are bound up with the things we were eating.

So that’s one side of it. The other is our group is a collaborative group. We make work together. Oftentimes, I would give them some type of prompt. Sometimes I’m writing by myself, sometimes they’re doing composition work by themselves and then we lay them on top of each other.

dTh: Did making this project change your perceptions of eating animals and vegetarianism? TP: I was very curious to see how deeply it would change my eating habits, because my wife is vegetarian and I’m not. So I’m used to cooking my separate meat portion. I haven’t stopped eating meat, but I’m fortunate to live two blocks from the Durham farmer’s market and so I now only buy local meat. People do know that animals are treated poorly. People do know that if they saw how their meat was treated, they may not want to eat it. But I don’t think they know it’s almost universally the case now and that it wasn’t always the way it is now. And if it wasn’t always the way it is now, then it doesn’t have to always be the way it is in the future.

Senior libero plays with ‘CLASS’
Kaylie Gibson modestly laughs, shrugs off the suggestion and says she doesn’t know if she considers herself a hometown hero. “It’s cool being so close to home,” said the North Carolina volleyball senior libero, an Apex native. “I really don’t know what else to say about it though.” But for Gibson’s coach, Joe Sagula, the title is fitting. “She really is like the hometown hero, with Apex just right down the road,” Sagula said. “Her parents are always at all of the matches. It really shows their support for her and for the whole team.” Gibson’s parents have attended every home volleyball match during their daughter’s career at UNC and have only missed two away matches. Gibson’s mother Debbie agrees that calling her daughter a local hero is appropriate, especially for the players on Gibson’s former club volleyball team, which she helped coach during her freshman year of college. “Triangle Volleyball Club had an interest in her coaching and approached her because she was always good with the younger girls,” Debbie Gibson said. “They thought for the younger girls coming up through the ranks, seeing this short 5-foot3 girl who’d come through and made it, and is playing at Carolina, would really be a good example.” The community involvement, along with Gibson’s personal record on the court and in the classroom led to her nomination for the Lowe’s Senior CLASS Award this year. “I remember when they told me that I was being considered,”

dth/kelsey hammer Senior libero Kaylie Gibson is a top-10 finalist for the Lowe’s Senior CLASS award, which is given to athletes in 10 different sports based on community involvement, character and success in competition and the classroom. As a junior, Gibson was ACC defensive player of the year and led in digs.

Gibson said. “It was in August, I believe, and I had to send all this stuff in for consideration. Then I was notified by email that I’d made the top 30.” The award is presented each year to the outstanding senior NCAA Division-I Student-Athlete of the Year in 10 different sports. The award celebrates seniors who have honored a four-year commitment to their school and who have excelled in four areas: community, classroom, character and competition. Gibson was not expecting to make it as far as she has in the selection process. “One of my teammates came up to me in the academic center and congratulated me on being a finalist and I said, ‘Thanks,’ thinking she meant for being in

the top 30,” Gibson said. “But she told me that I’d made the top 10. I couldn’t believe it.” During her junior year, Gibson was selected as the ACC Defensive Player of the Year, and was a member of the All-ACC First Team and the AVCA East Region team and was an All-American Honorable mention player. “It’s fitting (that she’s nominated for the award),” Sagula said. “It’s great that she’s getting the recognition because she’s a little bit of an unsung player, just because she doesn’t get the kills and points. But everything that she does contributes to those points that we see.” As a part of a top-10 nationally

The Daily Tar Heel

The E evator
On the rise
After losing 3-2 in double overtime to the Terrapins in College Park in last year’s national championship game, the Tar Heels are back in the NCAA semifinals looking for revenge in 2011. North Carolina will play Connecticut at 2 p.m. today in Louisville, Ky., for a spot in the national title game. Maryland will play the No. 2 seed Old Dominion in the other semifinal game to decide who will play for the title on Sunday at noon.

Field hockey looks for No. 7

UNC field hockey

On the decline
UNC wrestling
The North Carolina wrestling team was slapped with four quick losses to start the dual season. In the Wrestle for a Cure duals in Harrisburg, Va., the Tar Heels lost to Illinois, Boston University, Nebraska and Ohio State — all on the same day. In the Tar Heels’ defense, three of those teams are ranked in the top 25 and two in the top 10. To make matters worse, the only returning 2011 ACC champion on the Tar Heel roster, Zac Bennett, will be sidelined until after the winter holidays as he recovers from a shoulder injury. For the Tar Heels’ sake, it’s a good thing the ACC isn’t quite as loaded as the Wrestle for a Cure duals.

Ben Speas
Junior forward Ben Speas earned Most Valuable Player honors in last weekend’s ACC tournament for his two-goal, oneassist performance in the championship game. The Tar Heels took that match from Boston College 3-1 to win the ACC title. That offensive outburst doubled Speas’ goal count for the season. It’s heat check time now for the Akron transfer since the NCAA tournament is here and the Tar Heels will have their first NCAA tournament game Sunday at 5 p.m.

New Mexico men’s soccer
The top four seeds in the men’s soccer NCAA tournament are guaranteed to play each of their games before the College Cup at home. The Tar Heels are one of those teams, as they were awarded the top overall seed. Creighton, Boston College and Connecticut received the other top seeds while the nation’s only remaining undefeated team, the New Mexico Lobos were handed the No. 10 seed by the NCAA selection committee and will have to get by Creighton to make the College Cup. Not only are the Lobos ranked 7th in the most recent RPI, they sit on top of the last coaches’ poll. Must just be the breaks coming out of the Mountain Pacific conference.

After dismantling USC Upstate and UNC Greensboro this week by similar scores, 91-34 and 91-35 respectively, the No. 19 Tar Heels are off to an impressive 3-0 start. Freshman Brittany Rountree along with senior She’la White have picked up right where Italee Lucas and Cetera DeGraffenreid left off as Roundtree was the leading scorer for North Carolina in both blowouts. Both White and Roundtree combined to knock down eight 3-pointers against USC Upstate and UNC-G.

Women’s basketball

Cody Stiles
According to Chapel Hill police reports, Officer Bellavance found former UNC right-handed pitcher Cody Stiles drunk and disruptive on Franklin Street early Saturday morning. Stiles was arrested on charges of underage consumption, being drunk and disruptive and resisting arrest and was held on a $300 secured bond at Orange County Jail. Stiles, who was 4-0 with a 2.23 ERA last year for the Tar Heels in 12 appearances, is no longer on the team. Stiles was drafted in the 39th round by the New York Yankees out of high school but elected to come to Chapel Hill instead. He will be eligible for next June’s MLB draft.

With familiar opponents on the other side of the bracket, the North Carolina team will have to eliminate a team they haven’t seen this year to compete for a seventh national championship. Today, No. 1-seeded UNC will face the No. 4-seeded University of Connecticut Huskies in the semifinals of the NCAA tournament in Louisville, Ky. This will be the first meeting between the Tar Heels (22-1) and the Huskies (19-2) this season. Connecticut went 1-1 against ACC opponents during the regular season, losing 3-1 to then-No. 8 Boston College on Sept. 18. Senior captain Katelyn Falgowski said the team will need to be prepared for the Huskies’ ability to launch aerial passes, a tactic used in field hockey to clear the ball or to create a breakaway on the attacking half. The Tar Heels are 2-0 all-time against the Huskies in NCAA tournament play. Their most recent matchup occurred in 2007 when the undefeated Tar Heels beat the Huskies 4-2 in the semifinals on their way to the national championship. After dominant offensive displays against Ohio and Michigan last weekend, UNC reclaimed its title as the nation’s best defensive team and has the nation’s most shutouts with 12. Falgowski still thinks the team’s best performances are yet to come. “Going into this weekend I still don’t think we’re satisfied with where we are,” she said. “I feel like we left a lot of things out on that field that we wanted to finish.” The defensive backline of Meghan Dawson, Teryn Brill, ACC defensive player of the year Caitlin Van Sickle and Marta Malmberg has kept opponents in check, holding them to an average of just 4.7 shots per game. Dawson said having Sassi Ammer behind her, a freshman goalie whose first language is not English, has made communication a bit tricky at times, but that the goals of the defense remain the same. “For us not giving up corners and not letting teams get into our 25 or have shots on goal is something we kind of take pride in,” Dawson said. If the Tar Heels make it beyond the Huskies, either unseeded Maryland or No. 2-seeded Old

Dominion would be the last obstacle in the way of the national championship trophy making its way to Chapel Hill for the first time since 2009. Maryland owned UNC last year as it beat the Tar Heels three times, the last in a crushing 3-2 double overtime national championship game. This year, North Carolina beat Maryland 2-1 in Chapel Hill on Oct. 22. On the other hand, Old Dominion gave UNC its only loss this season, and while the Tar Heels evened the score by beating ODU in the final game of the regular season, the fact remains that the Monarchs are the only team to have outplayed the Tar Heels for 70 minutes. “We had a stretch that was pretty much uninspired and I think losing to Old Dominion was an awakening,” coach Karen Shelton said. “You form, everything gets normal, and then you have some kind of crisis, and then you can really perform.” The Tar Heels go to Louisville riding a 17-game win streak that dates back to September, and Shelton said she thinks her team will be able to keep its emotions in check as it inches closer to the pinnacle of its sport. “I think we are a mature and veteran team that’s been there before,” Shelton said. “There’s a sense of excitement and pride in being there, but not a sense of overwhelming awe.” Contact the Sports Editor at

Friday, November 18, 2011


The DTH sports staff and one celebrity guest compete to pick the winners of the biggest ACC and national college football games each week.
the dth picks of the Week competition is based on predicting the future. But you would’ve needed a crystal ball to predict what happened last week. the dth staff saw its sports editor go undefeated for a second straight week, its three assistant editors go 7-1 each and — perhaps most shockingly — saw the guest picking squad stumble for the first time. Just when it seemed like the standings reached some level of stability, everything changed. assistant Sports editor Brandon moree is now leading the pack after last week’s guest picker kevin Schwartz put together a sub-par 4-4 performance. moree had been flirting with a takeover for several weeks, and on the strength of a 7-1 showing, he finally sealed the deal. moree is now two games up on the guest pickers, who occupy second place along with assistant Sports editor leah Campbell. Campbell has steadily climbed up the rankings each week, overtaking Senior Writer mark thompson for third place last week. So while the senior assistant has operated under the radar for much of the picking season, she could certainly make a run at the title. But Sports editor kelly parsons has undoubtedly led the most dominant uprising of late, going 16-0 in the last two weeks. the junior hasn’t shied away from picking the underdog, and that shows in her picks of oregon and Boston College last week. it’ll be interesting to see if her gutsiness continues to pay off. this week, UnC played Virginia tech on thursday, so the tar heels aren’t included on the list. But be sure to check out our game story and sidebar from the matchup. David Reynolds is this week’s guest picker. reynolds, who was dth sports editor from January to may 2010, is now a reporter for the martinsville Bulletin.

UNC grabs early lead in Nike Cup
By Andrew Romaine
Staff Writer

As the last member of North Carolina’s first-place men’s 400yard medley relay team touched the wall to conclude the first night of the three-day Janis Hape Dowd Nike Cup Invitational, the Tar Heel swimmers that were crowded around the edge of the pool began chanting.

On the wire: national and world news
Occupy Wall Street protesters mark two months
NEW YORK (MCT) — Occupy Wall Street vowed to mark the two-month anniversary of its protests with a “day of action” Thursday, beginning with a march to the heart of the financial district — the New York Stock Exchange — that drew hundreds of chanting, sign-waving supporters to lower Manhattan. By 8 a.m., demonstrators had gathered near Zuccotti Park, their former encampment, chanting “All day, all week, Occupy Wall Street!” as they prepared to march the few blocks to the stock exchange. But scores of police blanketed the area near Zuccotti Park, setting the scene for possible clashes similar to those that have led to hundreds of arrests in past demonstrations. Tensions were especially high in the wake of Tuesday morning’s surprise police raid of Zuccotti Park. A judge has ruled that the city had the right to prevent marchers from camping there, forcing protesters to spend their nights elsewhere.

The line would ensure that two tablespoons of tomato paste slathered on school pizzas can continue to be classified as a vegetable serving. It seeks to block a Department of Agriculture effort that critics say would make it harder to offer pizza in the federally subsidized school lunch program. The provision is included in a bill headed for congressional approval. The bill would fund the Department of Agriculture and some other federal agencies while extending spending authority for other departments until midDecember.

Man charged with trying to assassinate the president
WASHINGTON, D.C. (MCT) — An Idaho man has been charged with attempting to assassinate President Obama in connection with a shooting incident at the White House on Friday night. A criminal complaint filed in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania

states that Oscar Ramiro OrtegaHernandez, 21, “knowingly did attempt to kill the President of the United States.” The charge carries a maximum sentence of life in prison. Ortega-Hernandez was arrested in Indiana, Pa., on Wednesday, five days after a shooting incident near the National Mall. Law enforcement Friday responded to the sound of gunfire on Constitution Avenue, approximately 700 yards south of the White House. Obama was not at the White House at the time of the incident.

viduals charged in the January 2008 shooting of Duke University graduate student Abhijit Mahato, who was killed in his off-campus apartment. The first day of the trial will be a hearing to address whether or not witnesses can bring up statements the defense calls “relevant but more prejudicial than probative” during the trial. Bethea-Shields wouldn’t comment on whether she was referencing the Mahato case with her request that certain statements be excluded, and Woodall said he couldn’t comment on whether a link existed. Per request of the defense, the trial will be entirely recorded, except bench conferences.

the offense picked back up from there. North Carolina put together an 11-play, 69-yard drive that gave the Tar Heels first-and-goal from the 5-yard line. On the next play, everything changed. Then Houston fumbled. “We just kind of fell off a little bit,” UNC wideout Erik Highsmith said. “We didn’t go back on the field for eight minutes and got kind of stiff.” Thomas connected with Chris Drager for 11 yards to tie the game at 7-7 and didn’t stop there. After a 22-yard field goal, Thomas scored on a 23-yard run up the middle and threw a 4-yard TD pass to D.J. Coles. The Tar Heels scored twice in the fourth quarter – a 5-yard pass from Renner to Highsmith and a 1-yard rush by Houston – but even that wasn’t enough.

Alternate forms of funding
But while UNC administrators say they have no choice but to propose tuition increases to protect their faculty, N.C. Rep. Hugh Blackwell, R-Burke, said the substantial proposal might not be necessary. “The University only gets about one-third of the revenue from the state so the other two-thirds they are getting from other sources,” he said. “I would look at those other sources for revenues other than just solely looking at the state and expecting the state to pick up the pad for whatever raises they want to give out.” Although at odds for much of the meeting, students and administrators did agree that state legislators should be doing more for the University. “I don’t think that the legislature has heard from the students,” trustee Alston Gardner said. “I don’t think they understand the significant quality of our students, and I don’t think they understand the needs of the middle class who are most affected by the tuition proposal.” All UNC-system schools’ tuition increase proposals — including UNC-CH — will be submitted to the system’s General

UNC didn’t even start with the ball.

North Carolina recovered the loose ball and drove it 20 yards for a touchdown just 1:18 into the game. Running back Giovani Bernard scored on a 4-yard rush after making a defender miss in the backfield with a spin move. Momentum stayed with the Tar Heels. North Carolina linebacker Kevin Reddick broke up a pass on fourth down to halt the Hokies at UNC’s 26-yard line, and then

UNC kicked an onside kick with a little more than a minute remaining and almost recovered it, but the Tar Heels touched it before it traveled 10 yards and the Hokies got the ball back. “Tough loss,” UNC coach Everett Withers said. “I thought we battled with them for most of the ballgame.

Future funding of education
While campus administrators across the UNC system are proposing tuition hikes in order to offset the $414 million that was cut from the system in July, future cuts are already looming. “We know that there are some structural shortfall issues with the 2012-13 budget,” said Charles Perusse, UNC-system vice president for finance. “Medicaid is underfunded by a couple million, and $250 million of federal money is going away from the public school system. ibility at this point,” Leslie said. Jim Hirschfield, chairman of the art department, said the future for hiring and retaining faculty within his department remains unclear. “The faculty that are here are dedicated and they want to be here,” Hirschfield said. “But the possibility of people being lured away to other institutions is on my mind constantly.” Many departments have looked elsewhere to fund faculty positions needed to keep up with growing enrollment. The biology department turned to private funds to continue hiring for one position, Kier said. The UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center agreed to help fund a position in the department with the expectation that UNC will pick up the costs in later years, Kier said.

The legislature is already talking about how to cover that.” Last year’s 15.6 percent budget cut to the system prompted many schools to eliminate resources, such as counseling services, course offerings and about 3,000 faculty positions. “Obviously, we live in an era right now of fiscal uncertainty and we know that campus balance sheets are impacted by several areas,” Perusse said. “As there’s pressures on state appropriations and federal money, that’s why you look at potentially more tuition because they all impact the bottom line.” State & National Editor Isabella Cochrane contributed reporting. Contact the University Editor at Sudhanshu Handa, chairman of the public policy department, said retention might worsen as faculty members realize the budget crisis isn’t near its end. That sentiment was some trustees’ rationale for favoring Carney’s proposal, which calls for a 4 percent raise for faculty next year. Handa said departments have considered offering faculty more research time in lieu of salaries that have not increased. “The idea is that if the monetary compensation isn’t changing, then maybe faculty could be given more time to do research, but then that’s less teaching time,” Handa said. “And then if professors teach less, where does that leave the students and the teaching assistants? That’s the crux of the dilemma.” Contact the University Editor at

But faculty leaving UNC for other schools has become painful for many department chairmen. “I dread a visit from a faculty member that they’ve gotten a wonderful offer from another institution because our ability to capture and counter-offer that is limited,” said Bill Kier, chairman of the biology department. Paul Leslie, chairman of the anthropology department, said a positive teaching environment plays an equally large role as salary increases in retaining faculty. “If it reduces class sizes or provides opportunities for new experimental courses, that helps not only students, but improves the experience for instructors and faculty,” Leslie said. “We are at the end of our flex-

Let Eve’s memory inspire your best
his Saturday would have been Eve Carson’s 26th birthday. Though the community will honor her at the memorial 5k in her name, almost all the students with whom she shared this campus have left. Students I hear speaking about Eve on campus seem to fall into one of two camps. Many idolize her as an abstract ideal — the Carolina Way — while some regard the efforts to remember her as little more than a coping mechanism for those who had been close to an ordinary person. Neither stance is quite correct. Eve left an outsized impact and inspired many, but she was indeed just a college student like us, with her own strengths and weaknesses. I was a freshman three and a half years ago, when the campus packed Polk Place and then the Dean Dome to mourn the murder of our student body president, a fellow student and, for many, a dear friend. Though I had spoken with Eve only a few times, I still felt a sense of loss. After all, she was the sort of student who made me excited to go to UNC: a leader on campus, smart and with a heart for other students — even the unsettled freshman. We cried together as a community, and came together as UNC does so well. And after the basketball team beat Duke the following weekend, even the crowd on Franklin Street honored her name. The details Eve’s friends shared about her have become collective memory: that she cared about working for other students and could make others feel like they were the most important people in the world, and that she also loved to have a good time and dance. And as Eve Carson became the embodiment of what a UNC student should be, it became tempting to mythologize her, as if there could never be such a student body president or caring student, or perfect human being. Eve was special, but she wasn’t perfect. She was a crummy driver, I’m told, and it could take you 15 minutes to read an email from her. She was always down to be ridiculous. She was a college student; she was human. To me, that seems a far more powerful message to today’s students and those who will follow in the future. Once we accept Eve as human and try to understand who she was, then students need not live in her shadow. We can accept and reject lessons from her; being ourselves, we can go beyond her. That’s not to say her impact is any less meaningful or her example less impressive. The Eve Carson Scholarship wasn’t just started in her name. It had been her idea — she had sold her friends on it, they wanted to see it through. And she definitely had a rare ability to inspire idealism in others. One friend of mine still turns to the handful of emails he has from her for inspiration. When 10,000 members of the community turned up for her memorial service, you could almost imagine that these were the friends that Eve, as she told us, had not yet met. But we can honor Eve without falsely beatifying her. Rather than each simply aspiring to be like Eve, we should be reminded by our memory of her to be our best selves.

Don’t feel mediocre: you are invaluable to UNC
TO THE EDITOR: I am writing to fellow Tar Heels that feel mediocre in a community of incredible people that often fosters this. Here at UNC, we are all amazing, succeeding in every aspect of our lives. As finals near, we as leaders forget how much it means to others that we do what we do. We look at our peers and see that they are accomplishing other worldly things — raising awareness, starting organizations. But, as ambitious as we are, “doing” sometimes makes us jaded — as if no matter what you do you’re never good enough. You are an invaluable part of this community. Being the “best” is a personal construct. Rather than continue to challenge yourself, think about all that you do for everyone, each and every day. Every day you make someone smile. Every day you change a life. Every day you wear a blue that unites us and makes us one family. You have accomplished so much this semester, whether it be overcoming a struggle, coming to UNC, teaching an incredible class, running a marathon or being a friend. I thank you for what you do and I hope that you are all able to place yourself on this pedestal and see yourself as an indispensable part of UNC. It’s not about winning championships, getting the perfect grades or saving lives — it’s about touching lives, and you’re doing that right now. Andrea Pino Sophomore Journalism

On to the state
n its vote to raise tuition Thursday, the Board of Trustees drove yet another nail into affordable education’s proverbial coffin — but not before taking one last chance to prove just how hurried this year’s tuition process has been. After motioning on behalf of her committee to vote on Executive Vice Chancellor and Provost Bruce Carney’s proposal, trustee Sallie ShupingRussell seconded Student Body President Mary Cooper’s motion to delay the vote another month, only to withdraw it and vote to raise in- and out-of-state tuition by 15.6 and 6.5 percent, respectively. Her reluctance, yet insistence to send the proposal along to the Board of Governors, showed just how far UNC backed itself into a corner. But the board and administration aren’t the only ones deserving of blame. Cooper’s proposal to raise in-state tuition 6.4 percent and out-of-state tuition 4 percent deserved all the praise it received, especially when one considers that it was pieced together, as she said Thursday,



Students must make education a campaign issue this coming year.

“with one Excel sheet, with Google and a weekend.” Impressive though that may be, waiting until the last second deprived an otherwise well thought-out proposal of a chance. It’s now Cooper’s obligation to make up for lost time. From the beginning of her administration, Cooper has shown a savvy for coordinating students at a state-wide level. During the summer, she mobilized students on a lobbying campaign meant to spare the University from as many budget cuts as possible. She should employ a similar strategy to make preserving public education a campaign issue for the 2012 election year. As the past year and its 15.6 percent, or $414 million, cut to UNC system has shown, some state legislators lack an appreciation for higher education and the benefits it reaps for the state’s economy. Before legislators sign off on any tuition proposal, the University’s plan must pass through the Board of Governors. To date, this board has not had the courage to fend off tuition increases and say “enough” to the state. Students are uniquely suited to fill this role, but their

potential wasn’t tapped on this campus until last week, with Cooper’s tuition forums. With the filing deadline for 2012 elections coming in February, this potential must be channeled toward the source of the UNC system’s financial hardship — the state legislature. This shouldn’t be a tough sell for in-state students, who face a tuition hike that more than doubles the BOG’s 6.5 percent cap on such increases. Many of their families have spent years dutifully paying taxes to the state with the understanding that they would one day afford tuition at UNC or any other UNC-system school. Tuition should be kept within their grasp. It’s time for students to finally draw a line in the sand. It’s time to tell the state that the University has cut itself down to the bone, that the UNC system has a contract to keep education affordable. It’s time for legislators to know that, with each successive year of budget cuts, they violate that contract more and more. And it’s time for students to realize their role in maintaining that contract and making the preservation of highquality, accessible education a prerequisite for public office.

Be grateful for UNC in spite of tuition hikes
TO THE EDITOR: I believe I am not alone when I express my absolute distaste for the sense of entitlement displayed by so many of those vehemently opposed to any and all tuition hikes. Yes, education should be readily available to all who want it. But claiming that it is some inalienable right for a worldclass university to pay for that education for you is wrong. If you want a free education, then get a free library card to check out free books in the free library and educate yourself. No one is stopping you. I am paying my own way through school by working 30 hours a week, and it is not easy for me financially. It would be great if I didn’t have to pay more, but I cannot help but feel a great sense of gratitude to UNC for the opportunity I have here. We all have a fantastic and undeniably cheap university at our fingertips every day. Even with a 15.6 percent increase, that will not change. Tuition will still be cheap and UNC will still be the greatest place on earth to receive an education. It’s time for the ingratitude to stop. Ryan Lee Junior Journalism

uring Thursday’s full Board of Trustees meeting, Student Body President Mary Cooper’s thoughtful proposal was briefly acknowledged by the trustees but dismissed as a real alternative. Standing up to the board on behalf of more than 500 students’ stories she has collected over the past two weeks, Cooper asked the trustees for one thing: time. If the board could only postpone the vote until December, she suggested, alternative proposals could be further developed and seriously considered. In Cooper’s own words, “We did this with one Excel document, with Google and a weekend.” Imagine what we could do in one more month. It is clear to students that our University has critical needs. As the members of the tuition and fee advisory task force and Executive Vice Chancellor and Provost Bruce Carney have demonstrated, we are losing professors to universities that can give them the pay they deserve. And the University has been forced to cut about 16,000 course seats. State budget cuts are hurting our university — and something must be done. But this budgetary side of the


The fight has only just begun

story has been allowed to dominate the conversation. The real impact of tuition hikes, especially on lowand middle-income students, has not been sufficiently discussed. It’s commendable that UNC is keeping its commitment to providing 100 percent of need-based financial aid. But, as students, we know that aid packages do not cover all costs. We know that there are more loans on the way for many of us, nonetheless. We don’t know how much greater the student debt burden will be (though we expect that it will be substantially greater) and the board does not seem to know any of this information either. Meanwhile, students have begun developing alternative solutions that protect the quality

of this university without giving up its founding principle of public accessibility. The board has indicated that these alternatives have promise but need to be further developed. Before we commit to Carney’s proposal, we need to make sure the student alternatives are given a fighting chance. The board ignored Cooper’s motion to postpone the vote and left her as the lone dissenting vote. But this fight is not over. We have until February, when the Board of Governors casts its final vote on the plan, to do the research that remains to be done and — above all — to mobilize. According to the (Raleigh) News & Observer, BOG member Fred Eshelman said, “It’s absolutely counterintuitive if you say when the economy goes to hell, we make people pay more.” Eshelman is right. UNC can preserve its quality in a way that is more humane and publicly minded than the impending plan. And if Eshelman’s words are any indication, we will have at least one ally at the board meeting in February. With time, research and an organized student body, I bet a few more can be won over.
