4 Tar Heels expected to be picked early in the NBA Draft

By Brandon Moree
Sports Editor

Four former North Carolina mens basketball players will realize a life-long dream Thursday night in the 2012 NBA Draft. This years draft is being held in the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J., and three of the four Tar Heels that entered the draft have been invited to be in the green room in the Prudential Center. Harrison Barnes, John Henson, Tyler Zeller and Kendall Marshall are all projected to be first round selections, if not lottery picks. Marshall was not one of the 14 players invited to attend the draft. Im loving it for them, North Carolina coach Roy Williams said in his annual summer press conference June 14. Ill be very excited for all of them. Its a pretty neat deal to see four kids that you really think a lot of reach one of their biggest dreams if not their biggest dream. Reggie Bullock, who started most of the year with the four Tar Heels in the draft is also excit-

ed for them, despite still being in Chapel Hill. Im definitely excited for them because I was in that starting role with them, Bullock said. Seeing those players move on to bigger and better things It just means a lot to me and I wish them the best. Barnes has the highest stock of the Tar Heels in the draft, after having an impressive showing at the NBA combine on June 8. At the combine, Barnes had the best standing vertical jump and was the fastest player to complete the sprint drill. He has since been working out for other teams, including Toronto, Washington and Cleveland. Charlottes new head coach Mike Dunlap said

that Barnes shot the ball well and flashed his athleticism in his workout in Charlotte. Henson has been busy since the combine as well, working out for at least 10 different teams. Hensons standing reach of 9-feet-4-inches was the largest at the combine. Zeller has been creeping up draft boards since the season ended, as he has also been working out for several teams. His 16 reps of 185 pounds on the bench at the combine was eighthbest that day and has teams talking about his strength as well as his unusual speed for his size. Though Marshall was not invited to the draft, he is still likely a first round selection and could be scooped up in the back end of the lottery. Obviously its fun to go to the draft, but its even more fun when you have your teammates with you, Barnes said to members of the media after his June 21 workout with the Bobcats. Its going to be a lot of fun that we all get to reach our goals together. Contact the Sports Editor at

Kenan Stadium was empty last year on the Fourth of July, but town officials are preparing to host a revival of the fireworks festivities this year. Though the annual celebration was cancelled last year due to budget constraints, the towns partnership with 1360 WCHL, a local radio station that owns, has allowed for its return. The event will include live music performed by Chapel Hill native and voice of the Carolina Panthers Mick Mixon and the Franklin Street Band. There will be face painting, a juggling Uncle Sam stilt walker, glow necklaces for the first 10,000 attendees courtesy of Grace Church and a watermelon-eating contest that will end in a championship match performed for the crowd. The display of 6,393 fireworks will begin at 9:30 p.m. Ron Stutts of WCHL will host the festivities. Lauren Stafford, WCHLs marketing coordinator, said they began discussing reviving the celebration with town officials in 2011. The discussion began after residents complained about the events cancellation during radio segments on WCHL, she said. A lot of people went up to talk about how they were upset that the local family tradition didnt happen, Stafford said. Stafford said though WCHL played a role in past fireworks celebrations, they will have a much larger

Budget receives mixed reviews

A budget shortfall of $500 million in two key areas has been filled.
By Amanda Albright
Staff Writer

The state budget modifications passed by the N.C. General Assembly last week have left some groups satisfied, and others wanting more. Legislators have lauded the proposed bill for its fiscal responsibility, because they filled a $500 million budget shortfall in education and health and human services. But some believe the budget is not doing an adequate job funding education. The budget provides for a tax break for businesses and does not raise taxes. It also gives public school teachers and state employees a pay raise. The bill revises the biennial budget approved last June for fiscal years 2011-13. Rep. Mike Hager, R-Cleveland, praised the budget for its ability to fill a hole while funding for education. But given the economic difficulties faced by the state, he said it was best that could

be done. It forces the whole state government to live within its means until we can find a better time, he said. Jay Schalin, director of state policy for the John William Pope Center for Higher Education Policy, said the proposed budget did not come as a surprise. This was a continuation of last years budget with less than one percent added, he said. It wont affect UNCs operations hardly at all. UNC-system President Thomas Ross said in a statement that he supports the budget. We understand that resources are scarce in every part of state government and believe the legislature worked hard to address our most significant needs and assist us in protecting the quality of education we deliver to our students, he said. But some progressive advocacy groups are angry about the budgets potential affect on public and higher education in the state. Alexandra Sirota, a budget analyst for the N.C. Justice Center, said the budget is a $2 billion decline in pre-recession level spending. It will compromise our states future because it does not invest in public institutions, she said.

Sirota said the UNC system is operating with 11 percent less money than before the recession, but demand for higher education is higher than ever. Despite raising the salary of teachers, Sirota said the budget would eliminate an estimated 3,000 teaching positions at public schools. There is a lack of reinvestment in a critical time in our states economic recovery, she said. Hager said many of the problems with education are structural in nature and cannot be fixed by spending more money. The N.C. Justice Center is among groups like the N.C. National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, Clean Water for North Carolina and Democracy N.C. in its opposition to the budget. Our budget is a reflection of our values and how we want our state to look in five or ten years, Sirota said. Were not investing in things that bring broadly shared prosperity, like infrastructure, schools and small businesses. Policy makers are making decisions for a few at the expense of the whole.

ell this is a hairy situation. A woman in Utah is filing a formal complaint after a judge encouraged her to cut off her daughters ponytail in court. Valerie Brunos daughter, Kaytlen Lopan, was charged with assault after she and a friend cut several inches of hair off of a 3-year-olds head at a McDonalds last March. The judge originally sentenced Lopan to pay restitution to the victim, spend 30 days in detention, and served 276 hours of community service. But the judge said that rather than have Lopan work side-by-side with a work crew, hed reduce her sentence if Bruno cut off her daughters ponytail. Bruno agreed, but now insists that an eye for an eye is not a proper form of justice.

Locally Grown oers free entertainment

The concert and film series starts downtown today at 7 p.m.
By Alex Dixon
Arts Editor

Tonights performance by three local bands will kick off Chapel Hills Locally Grown Music and Movie Series. The summer series features local up-and-coming band performances and movies shown atop Wallace Parking Deck at 150 E. Rosemary St.

Matthew Carusona, Chapel Hill festivals and community celebrations assistant supervisor, said the series is designed to promote downtown Chapel Hill. In the summer, a lot of the students are away, and this makes something for students who stuck around, and also residents to go out and eat downtown, shop downtown and come enjoy free entertainment, Carusona said. Tonights event will feature the Lizzy Ross Band, Mary Johnson Rockers and The Spark ,and Birds and Arrows. Glenn Boothe, owner of

the Chapel Hill music venue Local 506, is a board member of the Chapel Hill Downtown Partnership and is responsible for selecting bands for the series. Boothe said he tries to select local bands that have been successful at Local 506 or other local venues, such as Cats Cradle. The idea is that if a band is packing Local 506 with a cover charge, then ideally two, three or four times as many people would be willing to come see them for free, Boothe said. Boothe said that the environment of the event allows bands fans of all ages to attend the show.

For a lot of bands that are at the level of playing Cats Cradle, unfortunately, since its a rock club, people with kids or kids themselves dont get to see these bands, Boothe said. By playing this outdoor concert, its an opportunity for all fans to come see bands perform. Mary Johnson Rockers, singer-songwriter of the band Mary Johnson Rockers and The Spark, said she is excited about performing outside at a free-admission event. Music and art should be accessible to anyone, and this is an opportunity for anyone to

come out and have and a good time and come support music and not worry about a price tag or a dress code, Rockers said. Carusona said the filmscreening events include dinner and a movie, a promotion that offers discounts to Locally Grown attendees who mention the promotion or bring a coupon at participating restaurants. The idea is that folks will go downtown, eat dinner and create this local economic impact, Carusona said. Contact the Arts Editor at

Projects nalized by council

Town Councils last meeting this fiscal year ended debate on three items.
By Chessa DeCain
City Editor

The first half of the final Chapel Hill Town Council meeting Monday brought heavily debated projects to a close. The council unanimously approved the towns budget for the 2012-13 fiscal year, the Chapel Hill 2020 Comprehensive Plan and amendments to the Land Use Ordinance for the Northside and Pine Knolls neighborhoods.

New budget for 2012-13 approved

The councils approval of the budget came with only one major change: a previously-proposed halfcent sales tax increase to cover rising transit costs will instead be covered by a transfer from the general fund. Town Manager Roger Stancil said it should be recognized that after four years in a recession, the council has not raised taxes or reduced the services they provide. I think you should be proud that the town of Chapel Hill has made it through that recession without raising the tax rate in town, Stancil said. The approved budget also includes a 3 percent increase in town employee salaries.

Chapel Hill 2020 final draft approved

By far, the most heavily discussed topic Monday was the final draft of the Chapel Hill 2020 Comprehensive Plan. For two hours, residents and council members voiced their opinions on the plan. Most residents said they were generally happy with the final draft of the plan, but wanted some parts of it clarified or made more specific. Council members stressed the idea that the plan is a living document and that changes could be made to it when necessary. Mayor Mark Kleinschmidt said that flexibility is what makes the plan good. We have an idea of where we want to go, but we recognize that the specific direction is actually going to come when we insert the citizen input, he said. Which is exactly the way the process has worked up to this point. Mary Jane Nirdlinger, assistant planning director for the town, said town staff would work out how to implement the comprehensive plan over the next two months. Our first step is really to put down the details of what we need to do, she said. Nirdlinger said they will return with a report to the council at their next meeting Sept. 5. The 2020 Buzz blog and Twitter will also continue to be updated in order to keep the public informed on the process, she said.

Protesters present petition against sea level rise bill

By Vinayak Balasubramanian
State & National Editor

A group of protesters gathered in Raleigh on Tuesday to encourage legislators to reject a bill that requires planning agencies to use historical, rather than scientific data to measure rising sea levels during this century. Armed with 3,000 signatures and displaying protest signs, ten activists including coastal residents voiced concerns about a bill that would not consider a state-appointed scientific panels conclusion on sea-level rise. The scientific panel predicted in March 2010 as much as a 39-inch sea level rise by the year 2100. If we plan rise on historical rise, we are not preparing for the gravity of climate change, said Jenny Marienau, the North Carolina field organizer for Marienau said using historical data would require the commission to assume a 8 to 12 inch rise by 2100. This bill throws out the best available science.

The bill, known as the Coastal Management Policies bill, requires the North Carolina Coastal Resources Commission to create regulations that anticipate rising sea levels based on historical trends. The bill passed in the N.C. Senate by a 35-12 margin two weeks ago. But the House unanimously voted to reject it last Tuesday. After speaking in front of the legislative building, the protesters visited Rep. Pat McElraft, R-Carteret, who is the primary sponsor of the bill. McElraft said the original study was flawed because it only used one model and ignores historical data, even though she said the panel was asked to incorporate multiple models and historical data. She said the bill will commission another study into the matter. We needed to direct the state agencies not to use the 39 inches that the science panel came up with, because we dont feel that was good science, she said. McElraft, who said she doesnt believe climate change is caused by humans, said it was difficult to use the study to predict climate change.

In 1974, the alarmists were talking about the ice age coming in, she said. What has happened, has the ice age come in? She said most of her constituents wanted the bill to protect them from flood insurance increases and possible loss of property rights. The short term interests of industry will eclipse the voice of the people and the common good, Marienau said. Wilmington resident Nancy Sharp said the legislature was prioritizing short term profit for developers at the expense of her communitys safety. If you build on lands that will be comprised by sea rise, there is going to be devastation eventually and its going to be us, the taxpayers to foot the bill, she said. Marienau said the House rejecting the bill was a reaction to public disapproval of the bill. The protest was sponsored by two climate change groups and Forecast the Facts.

Davis Library renovation is almost done

ITS officials said students will no longer be hired to monitor labs full time.
By Matthew Cox
University Editor

The renovation of Davis Library is nearly complete, and officials say the improvement will enhance students studying experience. The project, a collaboration between UNC Libraries and Information Technology Services, began in late May. ITS contributed $70,000 to the project, said Jeremiah Joyner, manager of ITS labs and systems. The department spent an additional $120,000 on two renovation projects in the Undergraduate Library and Health Sciences Library in the 2011-12 academic year. To recoup the funding, ITS will no longer have students monitor the labs full time. We will no longer have to commit funding to provide those types of positions for people to monitor the labs, Joyner said. Steve Haring, executive director for ITS finance and administration, said the decision was strictly financial and was approved by Larry Conrad, the vice chancellor for infor-

mation technology. Conrad was not in the office Tuesday and was unavailable for comment. This was not something we did haphazardly, Haring said. Two students per semester will still be hired to work with CCI printing, which is managed by ITS. Davis Librarys third floor ITS lab will be closed and converted into a study space for budgetary reasons. The library will move 20 ITS computers formerly in the third floor lab to the first and second floors. ITS will move printing stations from the lab and two additional stations to the first and second floors. Were not reducing printing in the building, just relocating it, Joyner said. Were still waiting for the computers to be moved down so its not completely finished yet, he said. ITS also helped pay for some of the new furniture, including two new trampoline chairs located on the second floor of the library. UNC Libraries paid $40,000 to fund renovation of the second floor. Judy Panitch, director of library communications, said the changes will be finished in the next few weeks, before the start of fall semester. She said students have given positive feedback.

The Land Use Management ordinance was amended to restrict front-yard parking for triplexes in Northside and Pine Knolls and to require the Planning Board to approve any exceptions to the restrictions. Kind of a anticlimactic end to such an extraordinary process, Kleinschmidt said. Contact the City Editor at

Weve been really surprised because we thought it would be disruptive, Panitch said. During the renovation, the library has consolidated its book collection, added seating, increased the number of outlets and installed new computing tables and large display screens that can be used with laptops. Joyner said the new power outlets will be beneficial for accommodating more students.

A lot of students have been really happy with the changes so far, Joyner said. Panitch said the Odum Institute will also move to Davis Library this fall from its current location in Manning Hall. She said the move is not part of the current renovation project. Contact the University Editor at

A study conducted by UNC researchers has found that any physical activity can reduce the risk for breast cancer. The study also found that weight gain can increase the risk. Women who exercised more than 10 hours per week had the most significant reduction in risk for breast cancer, at 30 percent. The study was led by Lauren McCullough, a doctoral candidate at the UNC Gillings School of Public Health. She and her colleagues studied more than 3,000 women from ages 20 to 98, about half of whom had breast cancer. The results were published in Cancer, a peer-reviewed journal of the American Cancer Society. From staff and wire reports

Supreme Court ruling leads to confusion

PHOENIX (MCT) If Im traveling with other Latinos in a carpool, will I be stopped? Will you accept my Mexican passport as ID? If Im a victim of a crime, should I call the police? One by one, Phoenix Police Chief Daniel Garcia tried to reassure the questioners gathered at a Phoenix high school, saying repeatedly that people would not be detained without reason under Arizonas landmark immigration law. Across the state the laws show me your papers provision upheld by the Supreme Court has created confusion, anxiety, and moved Latinos both legal and illegal residents to ask an overriding question: How can you promise we wont be singled out because of how we look? The law compels police to ask about the immigration status of people they stop for lawful reasons, if they suspect those people of being illegal immigrants. Garcia and officials say they will apply the law fairly. But many meeting with the police chief were skeptical. Long after the meeting was over, a group gathered around a police officer and peppered him with more questions about IDs and traffic stops. Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton, a critic of the law, said the text of SB 1070 leaves plenty of room for questions. Stanton said Phoenix is prepared to err on the side of protecting civil rights. At the same time, it will probably take litigation to establish the parameters of what is and is not constitutional under 1070. Russell Pearce, the former state senator who sponsored the law, said, its demeaning to law enforcement to assume theyre out there looking to racially profile. On the other hand, he said, Those that are here illegally should worry. If theyre here illegally, they ought to be arrested. At La Campesina, a Spanishlanguage radio station in Phoenix and other cities, DJs have fielded dozens of calls from worried immigrants since the ruling was announced Monday. There are a lot hypotheticals, a lot of what if questions, said Saul Madrid, education manager for the radio network. Many of those questions revolved around whether driving without a license would lead to deportation. (Answer: Its not clear.) The radio station brought in local officials and legal experts to respond to inquiries. But satisfactory answers are few and far between. SB1070 requires local and state officers to tell Immigration and Customs Enforcement if they believe someone is in the country illegally. An ICE official typically over the phone will verify the persons immigration status, run a background check and decide whether federal authorities want to get involved. The Department of Homeland Security only deals with priority removals that is, illegal immigrants who just crossed the border, who have been deported before or who have been convicted of a crime. Department officials said most people stopped will not meet those priorities. But if someone is a priority removal, ICE will issue a detainer and deport them once they have been released from local custody, officials said. Lydia Hernandez, president of a local school board, said there is a shared sense among some Latinos that what police call routine traffic stops are really motivated by the type of car one drives, the number of people in the vehicle and yes, whether they have brown skin. My routine traffic stop differs from a person in Scottsdale who is not my color, she said, referring to the well-to-do community northeast of Phoenix. Arizona is 29.6 percent Latino.

Backyard Barbecue draws more than 100

By Alex Dixon
Arts Editor

Karina Soni thinks the combination of food and music is the perfect way to enjoy the summer outside. Soni is the station manager at the UNC student-run radio station WXYC, which put on its first Backyard Barbecue event of the summer outside of Chapel Hill Underground Sunday. Sundays event featured live music from two local bands, pulled pork barbecue sandwiches, hot dogs and chips for a cover charge of $3. Around 150 people attended the event. Backyard Barbecue shows are scheduled to occur on the last Sunday of every month at the Chapel Hill Underground. The whole name of our shows, the Backyard Barbecue, is fun because its very literal, Soni said. Also, the combination of music and food make a fun occasion. Eddie Sanchez, co-owner of Chapel Hill Underground, said the Backyard Barbecue is the first event the bar has hosted outside, but he hopes to schedule more outdoor shows in the future. The female trio Boykiller and Carrboro-based Flesh Wounds performed at the event. Boykiller is like post-punk with a little bit of pop, and Flesh Wounds is a garage band, Sanchez said. Soni said Sanchez organized

the event and recruited the bands, but for the next event WXYC is recruiting the bands. Backyard Barbecue began as, and still is, a WXYC radio program on Sunday nights. The radio show began about 24 years ago and features DJs playing local records, live in-studio sets by bands and previews for upcoming shows. The in-venue events began around the same time the radio program started. Julianna Thomas, the Backyard Barbecue coordinator, said Sundays event was the first

Backyard Barbecue in-venue show since October 2008. In the past, these in-venue shows happened very sporadically, Thomas said in an email. Now, were just trying to make it more of a regular thing. Next months event, scheduled for Sunday, July 29, will feature Airstrip and Old Bricks. Airstrip is a nightmare-pop band that features former members of popular local bands such as Veelee and Gross Ghost. Old Bricks, an indie-folk, experimental band, features Sanchez as an instrumentalist and

vocalist. Thomas said the Backyard Barbecue lineups reflect the varied musical scene in the Triangle region. Its really important to us that there is a mix of different genres represented in these shows, Thomas said in an email. The first show was very garage-rock focused, but weve also discussed and are actively looking into booking metal, punk, indie rock and more for future shows. Contact the Arts Editor at

A pair of Tar Heels headed to London Olympics

Alice Schmidt and Shalane Flanagan qualified for Team USA.
By Robbie Harms
Staff Writer

EUGENE, ORE. Alice Schmidt is going to London. The former North Carolina middle distance standout skipped around Hayward Field waving an American flag, happily completing a victory lap after Monday nights womens 800-meter final at the 2012 U.S. Olympic Trials in Eugene, Ore. Just minutes earlier, Schmidt a nine-time All-American at UNC held off a flurry of lastsecond kicks to grab third place and a spot on the U.S. Olympic Team going to London later this summer. The top five runners were separated by 0.64 seconds, and Schmidts time of 1:59.46 was just enough to fend off late surges by the fourth and fifth-place finishers. I love Hayward Field,

Schmidt, a 2004 graduate of UNC, said. Ive had some of my best memories here. The meet wasnt as memorable for fellow Tar Heel alum Addie Bracy. The current volunteer assistant for the UNC track program finished 19th in the womens 10,000-meter final Friday night, fighting her way to a 33:14.12 against the nations best. Its a pretty rough day, Bracy said. I just qualified two weeks ago, so I had to run pretty hard there. I kind of came in to this on dead legs. But her race strategy wasnt to blame for the disappointing time. The race went perfectly the way I wanted to go, Bracy said. I just couldnt respond when people started picking it up the second half of the race. So I just sat there and sat there. One of those runners who began to push the pace toward the closing miles was former UNC distance great Shalane Flanagan. Flanagan, the bronze medalist at the 2008 Beijing Olympics and current American record holder

Its a party celebrating all these athletes making their dreams come true.
Shalane Flanagan,
former UNC distance runner

in the event, treated the race as a training run, having already qualified for the London games in January after winning the U.S. marathon trials. But it was clear that she was in it to win. She held a strong position for most of the race before the

eventual winner, Amy Hastings, pushed past her with a late surge. Flanagan finished third in 31:59.69. Im really here just kind of as a celebration, Flanagan said in the post-race press conference. Its a party celebrating all these athletes working so hard and making their dreams come true. Even though Flanagan finished in the top three and has made the Olympic A standard required of all athletes going to the games, she will not be running the 10,000 in London because she relinquished her spot to focus on the marathon. That cleared the path to

London for one of her Oregon Track Club teammates, fourthplace finisher Lisa Uhl, which turned out to be silver lining. Im just happy that I can be a part of my teammate making her first Olympic team, she said. Its really special. Former Tar Heel Sheena Gordon, who placed second in the womens triple jump with a personal-best of 45-4 ., wont be

in London as that length did not meet the Olympic A requirement. UNC runner Clayton Parros, a rising senior who had run the Olympic B standard for the 400meter, didnt make the cut to run in Eugene. He tied for the 29thbest time, and the trials only took the top 28. Contact the Sports Editor at

4 Tar Heels named All-ACC Academic team for 2012
Sophomores Brian Holberton and Shane Taylor were named to the All-ACC Academic Baseball Team for the second year in a row, while freshman Benton Moss and junior Chris Munnelly made the team for the first time in 2012. Holberton is the only player from UNC to make the team that is not a pitcher, as he served the Tar Heels as a designated hitter and utility player this past season. Moss, who is a Morehead-Cain Scholar, finished his freshman year with a team-best 1.94 ERA and a 7-2 record. To be eligible for the academic team athletes must have a 3.00 GPA in the previous semester and maintain a 3.00 cumulative average during his academic career.

UNC diver finishes 21st at the U.S. Olympic Trials
Former North Carolina diver David MacDonald, a 2012 graduate, competed in the Olympic Trials June 25 in Federal Way, Wash. MacDonald finished 21st in the three-meter diving competition with a score of 310.30. He is the first Tar Heel to qualify for the trials since the 1950s.

Kristine Lilly, who played for UNC from 1989-1992, also won four national titles at UNC. Both Hamm and Lilly lost just one game as Tar Heels.

He tried to model progress that was economically sustainable and good for patients, said professor Howard McLeod, the director of the Institute for Pharmacoeconomics and Individualized Therapy, a program at UNC with which Vernon did much of his work. He really represented someone with a lot of passion for taking boring economic models and using them to make peoples lives better. His colleagues particularly remember the high quality and quantity of his work. He published

more than 47 papers, 30 editorials and three books and chapters. He also won the International Society for Pharmacoeconomics and Outcomes Research Methodology Research Award in 2006 for his work. He was a brilliant scholar, said Peggy Leatt, chairwoman of the department of health policy and management. We were very proud to have him associated with us. Vernons position will eventually be filled, but the search for a replacement has not yet begun. Theres still a lot of shock that a young, vital guy is gone, McLeod said.

McLeod said finding a replacement will not be easy, as Vernon was specifically recruited by the school for his unique qualifications. We need people with his expertise, and there arent many of them around, McLeod said. He will be sorely missed. Daniel Belsky, a doctoral student of Vernons, said he found his support helpful while working to earn his degree. John was a very supportive and easy-going mentor, Belsky said. He was very interested in helping his students succeed. Contact the University Editor at

presence this year. Weve offered some clients a VIP area, and people who weve gotten to be donors or contributors to the event will be coming out, she said. This years event will cost the town of Chapel Hill $43,000. Though the funds were included in the 2012-13 fiscal year budget, the town has already raised over $11,000, said Ray Kisiah Jr., director of the Chapel Hill Department of Parks and Recreation. Kisiah said the town will set up donation boxes at the gates to the stadium to help offset the cost of the event. Individual attendees can donate $1 upon entry and families of more than five can donate $5, though Stafford said donations are voluntary. Nobody will be turned away it is a free event, she said. Kisiah said they will decide whether to continue with the donation system based on the response to it this year. We will make that determination as we move into the fall, he said. Wes Tilghman, the towns festival and events supervisor, said many of the donations already given came from local businesses and were thanks to the work of Barry Leffler, the WCHL CEO. Stafford said she hoped the donation system would help residents show their appreciation for the work put into the event.

Stafford said when WCHL saw an opportunity to help bring back that tradition, they jumped on it. Kisiah said he enjoyed the event and is looking forward to it. I walk around and get to look at peoples faces, Kisiah said. Its really neat to see all the families that come out together and are enjoying being together on our nations birthday, he said.

Weve forgotten how to share

raveling through the U.S. is a unique experience, one that mixes cultures, languages and types of folks who until recently shared a common interest in the livelihood of one another. Our history shows weve had our differences, but weve managed to live together and thrive. But in my last four years at UNC, it would seem that we have lost the American exceptionalism, the unyielding belief in the unity that built the Hoover Dam during the worst economic climate in history. This determined quality inspired the creation of this great public institution in 1789. But the American populous has lost the basic empathy for their fellow patriot the empathy necessary to end unyielding political stalemate. The proposals to perpetuate the Bush tax cuts for the most prosperous Americans give life to the blind, isolated selfishness and greed that has held us back. This should be plain to see. Many of us can remember our first experience with sharing. And whether we stomached the thought of passing the plate of cookies or letting someone else have a chance on our favorite swing set, we learned our lessons along the way. The rhetoric in Washington today would lead most to believe that many on both sides of the aisle fail in the sharing department. The notion that giving tax breaks to Americas most affluent will somehow alleviate the burdens of swelling poverty, urban homelessness and educational inequity makes no sense. Certainly some would give their monetary gains toward charities and small business ventures. But, I say the federal government is a better arbitrator of this solution than the moral consciousness of Americas gentry elite. Its as if we are back in that kindergarten classroom, giving the entire cake to the greedy kid with the overactive sweet tooth, expecting to get a slice of the pie. Nothing about this makes sense. Still, our poor track record of caring for the other in our midst continues. Just this month, not a single Republican in an overwhelmingly male Senate voted for a bill that would have ensured equal pay for men and women. And even now, as the wealth gap between the rich and the poor is greater than ever before, many are calling for the defunding of lifesaving social programs and vital public schools. Of course, the private sector isnt all bad. Private businesses feed and clothe our nation. But allowing private, profit-driven industry to hold the keys to education and health care seems a bit too far. Private insurance companies deny coverage to thousands of Americans each year for a litany of ridiculous pre-existing conditions, all the while charging us more. It would be utopian to think a growing American elite would raise all boats when since the 1980s so many of our ships and livelihoods have gone under. But this simply isnt the case. There are people of all income levels who abuse the law, acting to protect their own interests. But, for many, the American dream really isnt a possibility. The demonization of government and its programs has only taken attention away from an obstructionist Congress and reality of inequity in almost every social institution. Voting aside, we have lost our common denominator, we are losing our identity and we the youth are certainly losing hope. I want and need a president ready to invest in my future. And giving the reigns to private enterprise alone isnt a guarantee of equity and prosperity for all. Without a check, there is no balance. Without investment, there simply is no future.

State budget shows values

he budget passed by the state legislature last week demonstrates just how far the values of our lawmakers in the N.C. General Assembly are from those that built North Carolina. They have exhibited complete disregard for our schools the edifice upon which our state was built depriving children and young adults and compromising future economic prosperity. This budget is terrible for the future of North Carolina. As citizens deeply affected by it, we must affirm our commitment to the value of education by holding those representatives up for re-election accountable this November. The current crowd in Raleigh first raised questions about their priorities in the 2011-2013 biennial budget, passed last June. It featured substantial cuts to the UNC system. UNC-Chapel Hill suffered a reduction of 17.9 percent, or more than $100 million. This past year, students and faculty have experienced the



Professors got facts wrong in Frampton letter
TO THE EDITOR: I am writing in regards to a letter published here on June 21. The letter addresses the issue of UNC professor Paul Frampton, who has been held in an Argentine prison since January after being caught trying to leave that country with 2 kg of cocaine. UNC professors Hugon Karkowski and Mark Williams are asking for donations for professor Frampton, who is no longer receiving his salary from UNC. I find nothing wrong with that. It is wrong, however, to falsify information. In the letter, professors Karkowski and Williams refer to Villa Devoto prison where Frampton is being held as notorious for riots in 1972 (62 dead), 1978 (50 dead), 1990 (33 dead) and 2005 (33 dead). I wonder where they did their research. Not one piece of evidence here is accurate. There was a riot at Villa Devoto in 1962 (not 72. I guess they mixed the year up with the death toll) in which 24 people died. The one from 1978 they got right only it was 60, not 50 dead. The riot in 1990 was at Olmos, not Villa Devoto, and the death toll 35. Finally, in 2005 the riot was at Magdalena, again a different prison. This last death toll they got right. As an Argentine, I find it offensive that the history of my country be treated so lightly. And as a UNC graduate student and Teaching Fellow, I find it appalling that two professors from my institution not only did such poor research, but went ahead and published it. It is clear that this is not the point, and we all hope professor Frampton is innocent. But it is unacceptable for academics to treat data so lightly and publish falsities.

consequences of that decision, weathering severe cuts in classes and personnel, as well as difficulties retaining professors and losing even more in federal grant money. The Board of Governors was forced to raise tuition to help staunch some of the bleeding, pricing out prospective students. While legislators claimed their 2011 budget would not cost any K-12 teaching jobs, approximately 3,000 teachers and teaching assistants were cut. This year, the N.C. General Assembly with a Republican majority in both houses passed a bill modifying the biennial budget, which sets our K-12 education system up for an even bleaker situation this coming year. The budget does not allocate enough to make up for expiring federal funding, ultimately reducing overall educational spending by an additional $189 million. Between the 2009-10 fiscal year and 2012-13, the total amount of decreased school funding what schools actually receive comes to $520 million. And the modified budget could cost up to 3,400 additional teaching jobs, a cut this

state simply cannot afford. But lets not stop there. The nationally recognized Teaching Fellows program was cut, along with the Teacher Cadet Program designed to encourage high school students to consider teaching and the dropout prevention programs, Communities in Schools and Tarheel ChalleNGe Academy. Such destructive actions beg the question: if Republicans in the N.C. General Assembly dont believe public education needs their support, what does? The answer: a tax cut for small businesses that make up to $825,000. Only they subsequently removed the cap, cutting taxes on 400,000 of the states wealthiest. This amounts to a tidy $336 million in lost revenue, which would go a long way toward helping our schools recover. North Carolina distinguished itself from the rest of the South by smart investing in education and infrastructure. We attracted the cutting edge of business because of those investments. Now we all need to fight to preserve what is great about this state by showing our values with our votes this November.

Spending isnt the solution

Budget cuts are a necessary solution to Americas ongoing economic crisis.


orty-eight years ago, Lyndon B. Johnson much like President Barack Obama stood as the incumbent Democratic candidate vying for another term in the Oval Office during an election year. It was during that 1964 presidential race that Johnson first mentioned the Great Society, a vision for a more socially equal America through increased domestic spending. Johnsons colossus was created with the best of intentions. It represented a social initiative even wider in scope than Roosevelts New Deal. But the inherent economic flaws of Johnsons programs, as well as those that have followed, have been systematically ignored by some of Americas political elites, who have opted instead to allow these programs to continue. Its a hole that Obama has fallen into. One of the nations largest public health care initiatives, Medicaid, was established in 1965 as part of Johnsons Great Society. The program aims to provide health services for those who could not afford private insurance plans. In 1978, during the period of stagflation and general national

malaise that characterized the latter half of the decade, 9.1 percent of the U.S. population received Medicaid benefits. By 2010, that number had increased to 15 percent. By the year 2020, Medicaid coverage is projected to jump to 144 percent of its 2011 level in the wake of legislation passed under Obama. This leaves an overextended, debt-financed federal budget to foot its $871 billion future bill. Total federal spending for the 2012 fiscal year was set at around $3.8 trillion. Of that, 62 percent was allotted for spending on Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security and various other welfare and entitlement programs. The estimated revenue of $2.5 trillion puts us in the red by more

than 50 percent of our annual revenue. Meanwhile, our debt-to-gross domestic product level is expected to reach 70 percent for the federal governments accounts alone by the end of 2012, with the total national debt sitting at a whopping 101.5 percent of GDP. As a nation, we must be adaptable enough to consider significant budget cuts the elephant in the corner of the room as a potential solution to our fiscal crisis. The U.S. economy is in a fragile state of recovery. President Obamas suggestion of attempting to cure our fiscal woes by spending our way out of the hole weve already dug is flatly unacceptable. Weve been down that road already. The lipstick is off the pig when it comes to the stimulus packages. They failed. I want and need a president who will pursue measures to reform bloated entitlement programs and reign in out-of-control government spending. A practical approach to longterm fiscal stability couldnt come at a more critical time in this nations history. President Obamas 2008 campaign mantra rings true today. Its time for a change.
