Crisp tells Greeks to shape up UNC’s tolerance has reached limit By eliza kern

state | page 3 IMMIGRATION DEBATE The State Board of Community Colleges officially decided to change its policy and admit undocumented immigrants into its schools. They still must pay out-of-state tuition.

The University’s relationship with fraternities has reached an all-time low, and it is time for the system to shape up, a UNC administrator told pledges Sunday. “If you don’t, times are changing, and the organizations are either going to change with them or not survive,” he said. In a passionate speech to a group of new fraternity members about hazing and substance abuse, Assistant Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs Winston Crisp said his office would no longer tolerate destructive fraternity behavior.

Crisp told pledges that the future of Greek life at UNC was up to them. He said the Greek system needs to meet the school halfway. “You need to understand that the Board of Trustees and the administration are perfectly willing to shut your doors,” he said. “The days when my office is willing to stand in the breach is over. I’m tired of looking like a damn idiot. I’m tired of standing up for you and having you spit in my face.” The Greek community has come under increased scrutiny this semester. The University is investigating a party that happened the night

of Delta Kappa Epsilon president Courtland Smith’s death, and police arrested five current or former students, some affiliated with Greek organizations, for cocaine use. “The tolerance of the community has reached its endpoint,” Crisp said. “The tolerance of the University of cleaning up disasters on a weekly basis is over.” He said that while some of the negative perception of the community is unfounded, and that the system does a lot of good for UNC, there is some basis to the public perception. “We don’t have a weekend that goes by without a report of alcohol and drug and sexual abuse,” he said. “We know it’s not all connected with Greek life, but by and

“I’m tired of standing up for you and having you spit in my face.” Winston Crisp, Assistant vice chancellor for Student Affairs large, the perception is that it’s connected.” Crisp later said he could not speak for the trustees or the chancellor. He said the speech contained some hyperbole and was intended to be dramatic to make a point. “But generally, I think the notion that binge drinking and drug abuse have serious consequences for students is one that is now very widespread,” he said after the speech. Interfraternity Council President Charlie Winn said he has worked closely with Crisp and invited him

to speak Sunday. Winn said he was glad Crisp said what he did. “Dean Crisp does a great job going to bat for us,” he told the pledges. “Don’t take that lightly.” When asked if she thought the Greek system had a problem with drug and alcohol abuse, Jenny Levering, assistant dean of students for fraternity and sorority life, said she would prefer not to comment.

YWC’s adviser UNC weighs quality, growth asked to resign By Ariel Zirulnick State & National Editor

Joked in e-mail that he had a gun By Andrew Harrell Assistant University Editor

Youth for Western Civilization is once again fighting for its life against a deadline set by the University. The conservative student group’s faculty adviser, Elliot Cramer, resigned Friday at the request of Chancellor Holden Thorp after he ended an e-mail correspondence related to YWC by joking about his gun marksmanship. The e-mail came in response to brochures speaking out against the group. The home address of Cramer, a retired psychology professor, appears twice in the brochures.

Cramer had only officially been adviser for a week. Jon Curtis, associate director of organizations and activities, said the group will have 30 days to find a new faculty adviser, which is standard when a group loses its adviser. “I’m contacting some professors who might be able to help,” said senior Nikhil Patel, president of UNC’s chapter of YWC. YWC gained national attention and prompted a local debate on free speech this spring after it brought anti-immigration speakers to campus who were met with protests. Astronomy professor Chris Clemens, the previous adviser, stepped down from the position this summer because of increased public

After years of focusing on enrollment growth, UNC-system leaders now say that educational quality has not kept pace. To bring the two into alignment, universities’ state funding will soon be tied not only to enrollment growth, but also to freshman retention and six-year graduation rates. In the last several years, the emphasis has been on increasing student populations to counter concern that the UNC system was underserving the state, said Hannah Gage, chairwoman of the UNC-system Board of Governors. Tying funding from the N.C. General Assembly to enrollment growth prompted rapid expansion on many campuses, Gage said. But the number of students who dropped out, flunked out or took extra time to graduate also increased. There needs to be a stronger cor-

The day before Leslie Hughbaker traveled to Chapel Hill, she decided to sew a new pillow. It was not to adorn the beds at UNC Children’s Hospital, which have occupied so much of her past three weeks, or because her lung surgery might keep her there two weeks longer. It was because even as doctors were finalizing her surgical procedure Friday, she was handing a football-print pillow to UNC running back Shaun Draughn. “That’s all she’s talked about,” her mother, Tonia Hughbaker, said. “She made that pillow so she could get the football players to sign it.” A dozen members of North Carolina’s football team filed into the UNC Children’s Hospital on Friday for its annual drawing party to color with patients. Unlike the team’s regular hospital visits, the players sat in chairs too small, at tables too short and appeared to fit in just right. “I’m real with crayons,” Draughn said. “Might quit football.” The event has been held the last four years, said Crystal Miller, director of N.C. Children’s Promise.

Senior Alyssa Valdez expected to spend this semester in Cape Town, South Africa, as part of an honors study abroad program. But before classes started, she was on a plane home. Less than three weeks after arriving, UNC administrators withdrew her from the program, citing concerns about excessive drinking and allowing a man to spend the night in the group’s house. UNC officials maintain that the incident was handled according to policy. “It’s absurd,” Valdez said. “It’s completely against how a public university should treat its students, especially one as highly regarded as UNC.” Valdez said a Sept. 9 e-mail notified her she was dismissed from the program and listed the charges that led to the decision. She responded to the charges but said a Sept. 11 e-mail had even more accusations. Valdez said Margaret Lee, an associate professor of African and African-American studies who teaches in South Africa, abruptly woke her up the next morning. “She said ‘You’ve been dismissed. Get out immediately or I will take police action,’” Valdez said. Although she admitted to drinking on the night in question, Valdez, 21, denied having anything to do with the man who spent the night in the study abroad house. Lee and other members of the Study Abroad Office declined to comment, in deference to a state-

Erectile dysfunction tests looking up


From staff and wire reports

fter several rounds of animal testing, a topical cream used to treat erectile dysfunction for men who cannot take pills is showing promise, according to U.S. researchers. Human research could begin within the year. Oral erectile dysfunction drugs are widely used but can cause many side effects, including vision problems, headaches and hearing problems. Also, men who have recently had heart attacks must be cautious when taking the pill. The new cream contains nanoparticles which carry — among other things — nitric oxide, which is responsible for signaling blood vessels to create an erection. But the main problem could be that once many subjects have applied the cream, they often don’t stop rubbing it in. NOTED. A naked photo shoot in Canada was broken up by police Friday. But no complaints were filed until the crew had been shooting for nearly three hours. Police were required to break up the photo shoot because commercial enterprises on public property require a permit. Among the models were Valentina Elizabeth Taylor from

Community colleges will now allow all immigrants T h e N.C . S t a t e B o a r d o f Community Colleges voted Friday to allow undocumented immigrants to enroll at community colleges, reversing a year-long ban. Only one person, N.C. Lt. Gov. Walter Dalton, voted against the policy permitting their enrollment. According to the new policy, undocumented immigrants will pay out-of-state tuition, will not be eligible for financial aid and will only be allowed to enroll once the rest of students have seats. In August 2008, the board instituted a temporary ban on undocumented immigrants’ enrollment while a panel conducted a formal study on the issue. The day before the board’s decision, a committee of the board unanimously approved the policy. The policy will take six to 12 months to be implemented because of administrative review. —From staff and wire reports


Latino Center inaugurated Judge Collaborative opens in Craige North “We’re going to show this campus that By Lindsay Ruebens staff Writer

Ron Bilbao was sitting in a Carolina Hispanic Association meeting his freshman year when someone suggested starting a Latino Center. He couldn’t get the idea out of his head. Now a senior, Bilbao witnessed the fruits of his labor Friday evening at the unofficial kickoff of the Carolina Latino Collaborative. The network hopes to unify Latino groups on campus, work with the Latino Studies minor program and collaborate with other minority and advocacy groups. Police, volunteers to give John Ribó, graduate assistant Good Neighbor messages to the collaborative, said when Volunteers and police officers he came to UNC from Texas a will walk door-to-door Thursday few years ago, the only Latinos delivering town resources to four he saw were working in Lenoir campus neighborhoods as part of the Good Neighbor Initiative. The 1,000 “goodie bags” they hand out will contain coupons, a 20-page resource book and guides to Chapel Hill businesses and downtown services. The booklets will include information on noise ordinances, garbage collection and recycling dates, alcohol laws and maps. This year’s event marks the sixth year of the Good Neighbor Initiative, a program designed to help students living off-campus to collaborate with their neighbors to maintain their community’s safety and cleanliness. The visits were delayed about three weeks from last year in order to accommodate students’ schedules as they move into their offcampus apartments and homes.

After receiving input from two different chancellors and creating a task force, former Provost Bernadette Gray-Little granted permission last spring for the collaborative, a less-expensive option than a formal center. The collaborative’s new facility on the first floor of Craige North residence hall features a multipurpose room, offices and a “smart room” with seating. After reading an excerpt from his book, “A Home on the Field,” journalism professor Paul Cuadros led a discussion about the Latino community and American identity.

“It’s a great day not only with the launch of this collaborative, but also with the courageous decision of the Board of Community College System in North Carolina, which decided to admit undocumented community college students to the state,” Cuadros said. Cuadros said to collaborative leaders and the Alumni Committee on Racial and Ethnic Diversity that Hispanic students are expected to be the largest minority on campus in coming years. “This will be the fountain from where voices in this community and this state will be able to speak,” he said during his discussion.

Bilbao said he’s excited for what the collaborative will provide. “We’re going to show this campus that this is the best thing they’ve created in a really long time,” he said. And with a year to prove the value of the collaborative to administrators, Bilbao said he is confident in its success. “Our goal is not to duplicate work but to bring together all the work happening in this community and make it worthwhile,” he said. “There’s no failure allowed in this collaborative.”

Belated birthday for ‘Mama Dip’ raises money


Bliss Boutique Bakery sweetens expansion BY Jacqueline Scott STAFF Writer

Hidden in a nook of rustic brick buildings on West Franklin Street with a lingering scent of baked sweets, Bliss Boutique Bakery offers a modern frosting touch. While cupcakes are the signature of Bliss, the store will expand the business by launching new product campaigns this fall. “The concept of Bliss is more than just cupcakes. Although, the cupcake represents a large part of what we are about,” said Dennis Steigerwalt, the store’s strategy adviser and business partner. “Bliss is about many things: most importantly, the feeling our customers get from our brand.” But owner Mike Taylor said cupcakes are still the heart of the store. A regular gourmet cupcake costs $2.50. “I think there is just so much possibility with the cupcake concept, especially from a decorative and flavor standpoint,” he said. A few years after Taylor helped Steigerwalt set up CoCo’s Cupcake Cafe in Pittsburgh, Pa., the two

wanted to expand the business model. Chapel Hill was decided upon for the location. “I know how much people in the South appreciate a good sweet, so I thought a place like this would be perfect for Chapel Hill,” Taylor said. The store opened on Jan. 31, 2008, only few days shy of competitor Sugarland’s one-year anniversary, which left many unaware of its existence. “The timing with the opening indicates we didn’t have the chance to capture people’s attention before leaving for the summer and whatnot, so we’re excited for things to start happening in the fall — for exposure, for the word to get out,” Taylor said. But Katrina Ryan, co-owner of Sugarland, is not taking a bite out of the cupcake concept. “You never like to hear about a competitor, but having seen how our business has gone, I couldn’t imagine how they could make a living selling nothing but cupcakes,” she said.

“If you’re going to do something very ‘high concepty’ and only do one thing, I think you need a million people around so on any given day you’ve got enough customers who want the only thing that you’re offering.” Aside from cupcakes, Bliss now is diversifying to offer personalized tarts, brownies and cookies. The new campaign will advertise these products with new flavors, Taylor said. “The new offerings we’re making available this fall will continue to expand on our focus of making a premium product, just like our cupcakes Chapel Hill has come to love,” Steigerwalt said. Taylor said despite location and timing issues, business is thriving. “ C u p c a k e s a r e t i m e l e s s ,” Steigerwalt said. “My involvement revolves around the simple philosophy of spreading bliss — the name is no accident — to the community around us.”

‘Highly inappropriate’ Patel sent an e-mail to Cramer last week once he learned of the brochures with Cramer’s address. Cramer replied to the e-mail Friday, writing, “I have a Colt 45 and I know how to use it. I used to be able to hit a quarter at 50 feet 7 times out of 10.”


He also sent his response to Thorp and Haley Koch, a senior arrested in April for protesting a YWC speech. Her case was dismissed Monday. Thorp then contacted Cramer and asked him to resign from the faculty adviser position. He said Cramer’s statement was “highly inappropriate and not consistent with the civil discourse we are trying to achieve.” “He said it was a joke, and I said, ‘This just isn’t something we joke about,’” Thorp said in an interview. Cramer said he also sent Thorp and Koch the e-mail because he wanted them to be aware of the brochures with his address. He stressed his comments about the gun were a joke.

From Page One “Oh, of course it was a joke,” Cramer said. “It’s one thing to say that they simply ought to contact me, but to put my address is an implied threat.” Koch said she didn’t understand why Cramer’s gun comments were necessary to notify her of the brochures, and said she saw the e-mail as “very clearly a threat.” Koch, who said she was not involved in producing the brochures, added she might have taken a different approach but still doesn’t think printing Cramer’s address was threatening. “Finally I’m in agreement with something the chancellor did,” she said, adding that though Cramer had every right to make his comments, they were “totally inappropriate.”

Cramer, who has been retired for 15 years, said he no longer owns a Colt .45 but used to be a target shooter in college. He said he thinks he owns a .22-caliber. YWC still plans to host former U.S. Treasurer Bay Buchanan in October, Patel said. Thorp offered to pay for the event as reimbursement for last April’s disrupted talk by Tom Tancredo, a former Congressman who came to speak about illegal immigration. Although plans haven’t been finalized, Patel wrote in an e-mail he thinks he will ask Buchanan to focus her talk on free speech instead of immigration. Contact the University Editor at

ment from the University. “Our preliminary review of the facts about this situation indicates that this matter was handled appropriately,” said Karen Moon, a University spokeswoman. UNC policy states that professors or the Honors Program can suspend or remove a student from the study abroad program only in cases of “egregious behavior that poses a threat of disruption of the academic process.” Valdez said although Lee offered to take her to the airport when she was removed from the program, she declined the offer because she hadn’t had a chance to speak to her parents. Valdez knew a family in Cape Town who allowed her to stay with them until she could make travel arrangements with her family. “My bags were on the street when they came to get me,” Valdez said. “My parents didn’t even know the family I was staying with.” Her father, Luis Valdez, said he tried to call emergency contacts when he hadn’t heard from her, but when no one responded, he e-mailed UNC-system President Erskine Bowles. “I Googled UNC leadership so I could get someone of importance,” he said. “I would’ve done a lot more if I didn’t know where she was.” Valdez and her family are planning to meet with UNC officials to discuss the situation later this week.

the shift,” Gage said. “We may have done too well. We may have taken students who aren’t ready.” To raise retention and graduation rates, schools might need to actually slow their enrollment growth for a couple years, Bowles said. UNC-Chapel Hill and N.C. State University reflect six-year graduation rates well above the 67.1 percent national average of their peers. UNC-CH had an 85.6 percent graduation rate in 2002, the last year for which the UNCsystem provided data. N.C. State University’s rate was 71.5 percent. Systemwide, the average was 58.8 percent. But several other UNC-system schools reflect rates well below the average rates of their peer universities. Universities have raised admissions standards and are being encouraged to direct unprepared students toward spending two years at a community college first, where they might be better-served, Bowles said. If that happens, universities will be better able to devote time to the students already enrolled who meet admissions requirements, Bowles said. The shift will put a bigger burden on the community colleges, but the UNC system will fight for them in the state legislature, he said. “We are working as one now,” he said. “This is a significant policy shift here.”

Chefs get fancy Register swiper brightens Lenoir with local foods BY Delaney Dixon STAFF Writer

Farmer’s Market draws hundreds by Rose anna laudicina Staff WRiter

The menu: Anything from fried okra to moussaka to meatloaf. Seven local chefs fed hundreds of people Saturday morning using only the ingredients they purchased at the Carrboro Farmers’ Market — and came up with a wide range of dishes. “Events like this help encourage people to fill their market bags and they can see creative ways to use local foods,” Kelly Clark, the special event coordinator for the Carrboro Farmers’ Market, said. But if you don’t know what you’re looking for, the scene can be over whelming, attendees said. Local farmers sell an array of produce, meat and cheeses to large crowds of people equipped with empty baskets waiting to be filled. At one end of the market a vendor fire-roasts peppers, while at the other end fresh-baked goods entice hungry early-morning customers. Shoppers come home with all the fresh local foods and might not know what dishes to make, Clark said. To combat the confusion, the “Chefs Who Shop the Carrboro Farmers’ Market” event featured chefs from local restaurants such as Neal’s Deli from Carrboro, Elaine’s and Crook’s Corner from Chapel Hill, and Watts Grocery from Durham making dishes and passing out recipes for their creations. They shopped the market earlier in the week and prepared their food beforehand. One chef, Ricky Moore, who works at Glasshalfull, got up at 4 a.m. to prepare for the 9 a.m. tasting. But before the chefs were done slicing meatloaf or battering and frying okra, a line of excited and hungry locals had extended far into the market. Though chefs looked all business in white cook shirts and black pants, they all ran around tasting each other’s dishes, offering rave reviews. Clark said all the chefs partici-

Toneya Taylor, known to many as “Miss T,” has been working at Lenoir for eight years. She said she swipes about 2,000 One Cards every day. After seeing so many familiar faces on a day-to-day basis, Taylor said she acts as a mother figure to students. “Some of them are a long way from home, so I am their mom away from home,” she said. “If they need to hug or just want to talk, I am here. They are all my babies.” Taylor said she speaks to every student that walks past her, most times saying, “Hey, baby.

‘The Monti’ asks everyone to tell their stories extraordinary people. Jazz musician Django Haskins told a story of his passionate and bold parents. “They were like the Beatles, unable to face realities, but not afraid to keep on evolving and changing,” Haskins said. He said his parents attempted to travel to South America on a Vespa, but instead ended up being kidnapped in Jamaica. Author Louis Bayard said his father was a spiritually promiscuous man who would sing inappropriate Johnny Cash or Irish folk songs in a Wesleyan church, making his son wish he were dead. Bayard said he eventually realized as a grown-up, at his dad’s funeral, that his father’s inspiring individuality made him a real hero. Canadian writer Sophie Naima Caird described her childhood angel — her aunt, who wandered around barefoot, loved stray dogs and rotten meat and stretched naked in the morning. “She would never let anyone hurt her feelings in any way,” Caird said.

Justin Catanoso told a story of personal failure, and at one point, he urged the audience to shout, “Asshole! Asshole!” to make him feel like he was back at his university’s talent show. Catanoso said he had tried to impersonate Rocky Balboa but failed and faced the most humiliating experience of his life, he said. “Rocky Balboa came back to fight again and again. And so would I,” Catanoso said. Since its creation in April 2008, The Monti has occurred once a month in Alivia’s Durham Bistro. This was the first time the show had performed at a larger venue. “The audience was receptive,” said Emily Ranii, the center’s theatre director, who would like to book The Monti again. It was the first time Mike Harris, a social studies teacher at Phillips Middle School, had seen the show. “Storytelling is the beginning of everything,” he said.

World-renowned tenor will hold master class By Shelby Marshall

Anthony Dean Griffey will also give oneon-one coaching and speak in classes.

Staff Writer

Since Anthony Dean Griffey’s arrival to the UNC Department of Music a few weeks ago, he has worked to inspire music students with his gentle nature and poignant lessons about art and life. Today the world-class tenor is teaching a master class for voice that is open to the public. Griffey, a two-time Grammy winner, world-renowned tenor and reputable operatic stage performer, has been hired by the music department this academic year as a resident artist. At his new post, Griffey will provide one-on-one coaching with voice students, speak in classes and work with the University Chamber Players and the UNC Opera. He will hold one additional master class open to the public on March 15. In the performance, four voice majors will be singing operatic selections. Griffey will then review the pieces performed by the students and make adjustments to each student’s execution. The spectators will see how the

pieces are enhanced and improved through Griffey’s instructions. The audience also will be given the chance to ask questions and comment on the performance. Zack Ballard and Clare FitzGerald, two of the four voice students who will be singing in tonight’s class, said they believe there is a great deal to learn from the performance. “Somebody who is successful at any field has something valuable to say and beneficial for all students to learn and see,” FitzGerald said, adding that even non-music majors could learn from the experience. She said she believes that people can also learn by watching their peers learn. Ballard said the class provides a “bird’s-eye view” of the process of musical critique, which he believes

students will enjoy. Terry Rhodes, chairwoman of the music department and a professor of opera and voice, said Griffey has an abundance of knowledge to offer to all students. Rhodes said the class will offer an opportunity for students to learn from Griffey’s extraordinary talents and said she believes the master class will be an invaluable experience for all who participate. And even for non-music majors, Griffey’s lessons can be valuable. Both Ballard and FitzGerald said Griffey emphasizes individuality and uniqueness as opposed to trying to fit into a mold. “He teaches us that the world wants to see the best version of you,” Ballard said, adding that this message is universally important in college life.

National and World News Leaders agree to a joint discussion

Pakistan still refusing to target groups believed to be biggest threats to U.S.

WASHINGTON, D.C. (MCT) — Palestinian and Israeli leaders will sit down with President Obama on Tuesday while in New York for a meeting of the United Nations, a three-way meeting that the administration has been trying to broker for weeks. Is r a e l i P r i m e M i n i s t e r Benjamin Ne tanyahu and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas have agreed to a meeting with the U.S. president, Obama press secretary Robert Gibbs announced Saturday in a written statement. It wasn’t immediately clear whether the meetings portended a full-scale resumption of Middle East peace negotiations.

ISLAMABAD (MCT) — Despite growing U.S. military losses in Afghanistan, Pakistan still refuses to target the extremist groups on its soil that are the biggest threat to the Americanled mission there, the U.S. ambassador to Pakistan told McClatchy Newspapers. Eight years after Washington and Islamabad agreed to fight the Taliban and al-Qaida, Pakistan has “different priorities” from the U.S., Anne Patterson said in a recent interview. Pakistan is “certainly reluctant to take action” against the leadership of the Afghan insurgency. As the war in Afghanistan becomes more brutal — and as

Democrats split over health care

Obama to attend Japan to reform first U.N. meeting taxation system

WASHINGTON, D.C. (MCT) — Before President Barack Obama can sign health care legislation, his biggest sales challenge will be persuading his fellow Democrats in Congress to enact his plan. The party is badly, even bitterly, divided over a host of hardto-resolve issues — including the scale of government involvement, cost and abortion — making it impossible to predict whether Obama can muster the 218 House of Representatives and 60 Senate votes he needs to enact a bill. While almost all Democratic lawmakers want to overhaul America’s health care system, however, there’s no consensus on how to do it.

WASHINGTON, D.C. (MCT) — President Barack Obama is about to make his first pilgrimage to the United Nations, where he’ll be under scrutiny from fellow world leaders, much as he is domestically, to see whether he can deliver results as well as rhetoric. Obama took office eight months ago and made a sharp turn in foreign policy, stretching out a proverbial hand to Iran, striking a different tone with the Muslim world and promising cooperation with other countries. The shifts have won plaudits from much of the world. Now, however, it’s crunch time, said foreign diplomats, policy analysts and others.

its political and popular support wanes in the U.S. — Pakistan’s refusal to act in support of American goals is undermining the U.S. effort to deny al-Qaida and other extremist groups a sanctuary in Afghanistan. The most effective Taliban fighters, the Haqqani network of veteran Afghan jihadist Jalaluddin Haqqani and his son Sirajuddin, operate out of the North Waziristan region. Experts on the Afghanistan war think that military progress and political stability won’t be possible there unless the government roots out the havens the insurgents have established in western Pakistan.

TOKYO (MCT) — The Democratic Party of Japan decided to commission a report on reforming the taxation system, a report to be compiled by an expert panel belonging to a new government tax commission that the DPJ will create. The DPJ aims to combine the functions of the current governmental Tax Commission and those of the former ruling parties’ tax commissions into an integrated entity. The party aims to craft the document in the spirit of the Shoup Report made just after World War II and present in the report the DPJ’s mid- and long-term course for tax reform, including the future of the consumption tax.

was totally lost,” she said. Kirkland, who graduated with a class of 25, said bigger class sizes can be overwhelming to students from smaller schools. “Our classes were 10 people max, and then I got to UNC and took 100-level courses with 300 people,” she said. “I couldn’t learn anything, and by sophomore year I pretty much learned to schedule only small classes.” The workload also presented a significant change, Kirkland said. “I maybe spent an hour per week doing work outside of school. I never took my books home,” she said. “Here, obviously, things are a little different.” While the University does keep records of where students went to high school, graduating class size is not part of their records, said officials at the UNC Office of Undergraduate Admissions. Although Kirkland was forced to adapt to the UNC way of life, she said she doesn’t believe the University caters specifically to students from larger high schools. “Getting used to things here has been difficult, maybe harder than it needs to be,” she said. “But I blame my high school.” The transition to a large environment isn’t limited to just academic matters, Kirkland said. “I knew two people at UNC when I got here,” she said. “It seemed like everyone else knew hundreds.” Although the adjustments may be difficult in some regards, being from a small town isn’t necessarily a bad thing, Saunders said. “Whenever you meet someone new, it’s always a good conversation starter for someone who has never heard of where you’re from,” he said. And amid thousands of students who grew up in the same large cities and same large high schools, being one of a few students from a smaller town and high school gives a sense of identity, Kirkland said. “I mean — coming from a small town — I deer hunt,” she said. “Seriously, how many girls do you know that deer hunt?” Contact the Features Editor at

A violinist can play without fearing her hands will shake and her bow tremble; a vocalist need not worry his throat will suddenly dry. It’s no wonder they’ve become so popular. Around the world, the use of beta-blockers as tools to combat performance anxiety is on the rise. From symphonies to soloists, many musicians pop pills before they perform. And why not? Audition judges don’t ask for a drug test before sight reading. Everyone’s doing it. So it must be okay — right? Some say no. Mention the drugs around a group of musicians and at least one will denounce them as giving the taker an unfair advantage, or an unnatural performance. Even some who use the drugs are ashamed by the perceived weakness associated with stage fright. So my first semester in the UNC flute studio class, I was surprised to hear several upperclassmen discussing their betablockers of choice. I’d heard of people taking the drugs before, but never my peers. My teachers in high school had always stressed preparation and deep breathing exercises as an antidote to nerves. It had sometimes worked, sometimes not. And although getting a prescription was tempting, I had heard before that once musicians start taking the drugs, it’s sometimes hard to play without them. So I kept on with the yoga breathing, which had the added effect of unnerving other audition competitors who thought I had gone into a coma. After a couple of years of college music and a few dozen performances, I get stage fright much less frequently and wouldn’t consider taking propranolol unless I were, I don’t know, playing for Oprah or something. But the use of the drugs — and some controversy surrounding it — still interests me. I talked to other members of the UNC Symphony Orchestra during one of our twice-weekly rehearsals to see what their views were. Several said they’d taken beta-blockers before; others said they had not but supported those who did (“Performance anxiety sucks!” said one). The majority said they did not care whether others took the drugs, but the ones who did not agree with beta-blocker use felt strongly about it. They cited negative side effects and unnatural performances. This seems fair. For me, adrenaline seems to improve my performances, making it more exciting to play music. If performers’ nervousness were completely taken away, it would make live concerts pretty boring. So while the use of beta blockers is still left up to personal choice, I chose no, and I’m glad I did.

Accessible education State board right to support community college access for undocumented immigrants


he State Board of Community Colleges made the right decision in supporting the acceptance of undocumented immigrants to community colleges. The decision passed Friday and now must go through a six- to 12-month administrative process before officially becoming law. The new policy overturns an unnecessary and impractical ban that has kept illegal immigrants out of community college since May 2008. The initiative outlined three conditions for allowing undocumented immigrants. The student must be a graduate of a U.S. high school, pay out-of-state tuition and may not displace a N.C. resident from the class. With these requirements in

place, the new policy will not negatively affect legal residents. No taxpayer money will be subsidizing these students’ education and no competition for class seats will arise. If these immigrants are willing to pay the full amount, there is absolutely no reason to deny them entry. Any protest against the policy will simply amount to antiimmigrant rhetoric that won’t hold water. Besides, educating a workforce that already resides in the state can’t possibly hurt. Undocumented immigrants have now become a considerable minority within the state that needs access to education. “It is a policy that is the right thing to do,” said Dr. R. Scott Ralls, president of the N.C.

Community College System, in a press release. “It maintains that all-important hope for students who were brought to our country as minors and who are graduates of our high schools.” And with out-of-state tuition that will total $7,700 for the year, the policy will actually generate business for the state. According to Ron Bilbao, founder of UNC’s Coalition for College Access, the 200607 out-of-state tuition for community college produced roughly $1,500 in profit for the system. The State Board of Community Colleges saw through anti-immigrant sentiment and came to a rational agreement that will hurt no one.

Tighten the bureaucracy


Student government should streamline Cabinet

he executive branch of student government has become incredibly bloated. Under current Student Body President Jasmin Jones, the size of the Cabinet has jumped from 40 to 55 members — a number that makes efficiency a near impossibility. Jones’ Cabinet consists of 18 committees and 12 special projects, most of which have multiple chairmen. The size of the increase alone is equivalent to the entire Cabinet at schools like NC State and Duke — with 18- and 13-member cabinets, respectively. Jones would be wise to streamline her Cabinet.

One of the main tasks of an effective leader is delegation, a task that can be difficult to accomplish with so many people. No student body president wants to cut a program. But Jones could certainly create subcommittees in place of 55 individuals reporting to her. One of the more important committees for a school that holds its diversity in such high regard is the community building committee, which gives groups like graduate students, first-generation college students and the LGBT community “a stronger voice and representation on campus,” according to its Web site. However, there are six other

committees and projects whose stated goals very closely echo those of the community building committee. These could be combined, whether through assimilation or the creation of subcommittees. This move alone would eliminate many Cabinet positions. Jones’ Chief of Staff Monica Matta is excited about the Cabinet, saying it grows as a reflection of students concerns. However, there is no reason for such an enlarged Cabinet. All of the committees and projects have value, otherwise they would not exist. But the existence of so much overlap is an issue that Jones and her administration ought to address.

A mighty pen Carter set example of integrity for journalists, citizens


orace Carter was a warrior armed with a pen. The Pulitzer Prize-winning UNC alumnus, credited with taking on the Ku Klux Klan — and winning — passed away this week at the age of 88. While journalists around the country may remember Carter for this battle, the UNC community will also remember him for his kindness. Carter never forgot his roots. He was, as professor emeritus Thomas Bowers recalled, “always grateful to the University and to the department of journalism.” In fact, he even donated his Pulitzer to the School of Journalism and Mass Communication. Today, it serves as an inspiration to all who follow in his footsteps. Friends and colleagues described him as “a truly excep-

tional, effective journalist” and “not just courageous, but accurate and feisty.” While attending the University, he was the editorin-chief of UNC’s student newspaper, which would later become The Daily Tar Heel. Here he discovered his passion for courageous journalism. Upon graduating, he went straight to a small town called Tabor City and founded the city’s first newspaper, the Tabor City Tribune. But just when things got settled, they came, rolling into Carter’s small town in a terrifying motorcade — the Klan. Friend and dean emeritus of the journalism school Richard Cole said Carter “saw what was happening, knew in his heart it was dead wrong, and he wanted to fight it with all that he could muster.” And that he did. Carter fought vigorously

against the Klan by publishing front-page editorials on their despicable acts. In the end, he helped convict more than 100 Klansmen. It was the first time any had ever been punished. But it wasn’t easy. He feared for his family and his own life. For his daring efforts, Carter received the highest honor bestowed on a newsman — the Pulitzer Prize Gold Medal for meritorious public service. According to Bowers, “if there is a Pulitzer Prize for journalism that is ranked above the others, it is the one Horace received.” To note, this achievement was the first for a weekly newspaper as well. Carter’s achievements and generosity will never be forgotten on our campus. His legacy lives on through equality in the South and through all those that walk the halls of Carroll.

UNC women not shallow enough for DTH columnist

Wilcox should try to walk in stilettos, wear makeup

TO THE EDITOR: Ju s t i n W i l c o x ’s c o l u m n (“Don’t be afraid to look good, ladies,” Sept. 18) was incredibly offensive on several levels. Mr. Wilcox’s patronizing, sexist tone is infuriating. He asserts that the pain caused by wearing high heels is “an easy problem to fix.” Clearly, women are just buying the wrong shoe size. This is a ludicrous statement, not to mention condescending. The pain caused by wearing high heels is not merely due to blisters, but also to the fact that most of your body’s weight has been transferred to the ball of your foot — ouch. I suspect that if Mr. Wilcox tried to wear heels for an extended period of time, he would be well aware of this fact. Furthermore, Mr. Wilcox seems to think it is his responsibility to educate the ignorant females of this campus as to what men find attractive. Believe it or not, we are perfectly aware that high heels and lipstick are sexy. Please excuse us if attracting the opposite sex is not our first priority when we attend class, take tests or study in the library. What a heinous crime! Mr. Wilcox seems to believe that women should be willing to undergo considerable effort and pain just to attract men and “stand out.” I’m sorry that the UNC female population isn’t shallow enough for his tastes.

TO THE EDITOR: I always thought that the purpose of going to college was to get an education and improve job prospects. But Justin Wilcox’s column (“Don’t be afraid to look good, ladies,” Sept. 18) shows how wrong I was. I now know that I’m here to improve the campus scenery and make the college experience more enjoyable for “patrons of the arts.” Despite former failings of my lady-brain, I do understand that the objectification of women is all in good fun, and that I shouldn’t take things so seriously. In light of this, I would like to make a request, since I, too, am eager to dictate what other people should wear for my personal enjoyment. By this time next week, the author should have dressed up in stilettos and smeared carmine goo all over his face, then tottered around campus that way for an entire day. I will be happy to stand around in jeans and cat-call him for maximum authenticity.

Ani Goerdt Sophomore Political Science, Spanish

UNC women already have enough to worry about TO THE EDITOR: When Justin Wilcox wrote his column, (“Don’t be afraid to look good, ladies”, Sept. 18) it was obvious that he has never tried to walk in heels all day on campus. Let me tell you something, Justin: It doesn’t matter how well your heels fit, you will still have blisters and sore feet at the end of the day (and, in all likelihood, a broken ankle). Furthermore, where is this idea of high heels and makeup as beautiful coming from? Since when do women have to strut around in impractical shoes and cover their faces to be attractive? Society, and apparently Mr. Wilcox, both perpetuate this chauvinistic idea of women as beautiful only if they are flawless and fit into a specific mold. Women are amazing just by being themselves; stop trying to define an impossible standard of beauty! Women at UNC already have enough to worry about with schoolwork, jobs, MCATs and more, without also trying to impress anyone during the week. That doesn’t mean we can’t dress up when we feel like it, but we don’t need anyone to tell us how we look good. And tripping in our high heels and winding up in a neck brace doesn’t sound like anyone’s idea of a good time. Andromeda B. Cook Sophomore Biology, Pharmacy

Student Congress funding decisions not politicized TO THE EDITOR: Yash Shah’s letter to the editor (“Fee requests need to be well-scrutinized by all”, Sept. 16) implies that it is unacceptable for students to engage in student life at the same time that they participate in student government. It is reasonable to conclude that there could be a conflict of interest presented by committee members that participate in other campus organizations. Fortunately, our legislative tradition already has a mechanism to deal with those students who participate in both student government and student life. That mechanism is the abstention. If Mr. Shah had attended either the finance committee meeting or the Student Congress meeting (which are both open to the public), he would have noticed that all students involved in the student organization whose funding request is being considered abstain not only from the final vote on the allocation, but also from introducing motions on the floor to table, pass or reject the allocation. We even have an ethics chairman who is present during the Congress meeting to enforce these guidelines. The non-abstaining members of the finance committee considered the impact of the publication on the student body, its contribution to the diversity of viewpoints and the publication’s outside income before making a decision. Also, the members complied with Title V, Section II, Article 109 of the Student Code, which reads, “Funding decisions for programs, services or events shall be made without regard to the viewpoints expressed.” Jennings Carpenter Student Body Treasurer Zach Dexter Finance Chairman, Student Congress Online Editor, Carolina Review

advantage of every opportunity,” said Patty Griffin, spokeswoman for the Chapel Hill and Orange County Visitors Bureau. “You can’t assume full hotels or restaurants. If we have a packed stadium, we want those people to be eating, staying, and shopping.” The program, which has the slogan “come early and stay late,” is the combined effort of the bureau, the town of Chapel Hill, local business organizations and University athletic programs. Touch Downtown’s publicity push includes a revamped Web site, magazine ads, radio promotions, street banners and e-mail blasts. The big addition to the program is a list, brainstormed by local business leaders and sent out to busi-

The local economy might be struggling, but UNC football is going strong. The Touch Downtown program hopes to transfer that success to the community by promoting downtown shopping on game days. Touch Downtown, which started last year, aims to maximize the town’s economic benefits from UNC football weekends by encouraging fans to not only watch the game, but also visit downtown Chapel Hill’s stores and restaurants. Its new marketing campaign is much more aggressive than last year’s. “With the economy the way it is, it’s important for businesses to take

nesses, suggesting tactics for profit maximization on game days. The suggestions include hanging balloons and flags, offering game day specials and face painting. “We want to see if businesses are more successful on game day Saturdays than in the past,” said Rick Steinbacher, UNC’s associate athletic director for marketing and promotion. “We can get immediate qualitative evidence, but the real proof is in the numbers.” Last fall’s UNC-Notre Dame game generated $6.4 million for businesses and $325,000 in taxes, Griffin said. But the numbers aren’t in yet to show the impact of this year’s new marketing strategies. It was marketing, however, that drew John Burke to the Shrunken

Head Boutique on Saturday. “It’s been great,” said Burke, who drove in from Lexington for the UNC-ECU game. “The kids love coming to Franklin Street, seeing the people, checking out the merchandise.” The Shrunken Head Boutique incorporated many strategies listed in the letter, including hanging a banner and giving away UNC buttons and tattoos. “We do our best to make all our customers feel at home,” said employee James McCleary, who dresses like a UNC carny, a ringmaster in Carolina blue, on game days.

Schuler outsmarts Blue Devils in Tar Heel win

Lucena races cross country to second

By Louie Horvath

Staff writer

Assistant Sports Editor

On Friday, the offside trap was no match for forward Billy Schuler. Schuler burned the Duke men’s soccer backline on several occasions and scored a goal in UNC’s 2-1 win. Any time there was a quality opportunity, it seemed as if Schuler was right in the middle of it, either creating for his teammates or finishing the buildup himself. “Billy did a good job today,” coach Elmar Bolowich said. “He was battling very strong center backs that hadn’t given up (more than) one goal on the whole year so far. They haven’t given up much defensively, and they’re very strong players. To get through on them and score a goal is huge.” Indeed, the Duke defense had not given up more than one goal this season, and Schuler’s ability to time his runs and stay onside were one of the main reasons that the Tar Heels were the first team to score twice. “When you are up against an offside trap, you have to bend your runs,” Schuler said. “They’re always looking to trick you, they’re always looking to step up real quick. You just have to be aware out there. Obviously, a couple times I wasn’t. But we worked well with it, and we

were successful.” Nothing showcased this ability as clearly as the goal he scored: Schuler got the ball off a long run in the 22nd minute and took a shot that hit off the post before going into the goal to give the Tar Heels the early lead. “I had some space, and Alex Dixon was in the middle of the field,” Schuler said. “He made a good run wide, opened up a lot of space on the left side. I was able to get by my defender to the left and took a shot. Luckily, it went in. It hit the post, but it went in.” The goal marked Schuler’s first of the season, making him the eighth goal scorer for UNC thus far. “He’s a monster,” fellow forward Enzo Martinez said. “For the goal, he made it all happen, throughout the whole game. That position he plays up top, he’s lonely, and it takes us time to get up there to support him. He just got the ball and worked and worked.” Schuler also set up Cameron Brown’s game-winner, passing to Alex Walters to set up a string of passes that ultimately left Brown on the side of the goal with nothing to do but shoot it past the keeper. Schuler also had another try at goal stoned by a save from the goalkeeper. He beat the offside trap and was left with no one but the goalie between him and his second goal of

the game, but the Duke keeper dove and kept the game within striking distance for the Blue Devils. “I was just glad to get some more opportunities,” Schuler said. “I haven’t had a ton of opportunities in the last four games, but I got some good shots on goal and hopefully as the games go on, I’ll put some of them in.” Contact the Sports Editor at

stiffed the Tar Heels for 78 minutes until Jessica McDonald scored her fourth goal of the season on a header. In that game, LSU (4-2-2) stacked its defense, keeping up to eight players in the box in order to stifle UNC (7-0-1). Auburn (3-2-3) took a page out of LSU’s playbook Sunday and employed the same strategy to a scoreless draw. “It’s frustrating because you know you have to go quickly, but at the same time, you look up and there’s no one really open because they’re packed in like that,” junior midfielder Ali Hawkins said. That frustration was on display Sunday as shot after shot sailed wide or over the goal. The Tar Heels’ best chance came in the 86th minute when McDonald sprinted down the field on a breakaway, in great position to score the game-winner. Then

for 88 for sure,” UNC coach Butch Davis said. “I would try to make sure that I’m the heir apparent.” Highsmith’s score came on his very first touch of the day. With the Tar Heels facing third and nine, the play call came in: X-corner. Highsmith, the X-receiver, remembered exactly what he was thinking as he ran to the line of scrimmage. “I said, ‘Oh Lord, it’s about to come to me.’ And I just caught it.” It was one of many points that he had to prove Saturday. As if he needed more motivation against ECU, Highsmith said the Pirates were jawing at him all night, using his size and age — he’s 6 feet, 3 inches tall, 175 lbs., and 18 years old — as ammunition. But he believes that strength and maturity are more important, and he called himself a veteran in a rookie body. UNC quarterback T.J. Yates agreed.

Auburn’s Lizzie Hamersly tripped up McDonald just outside the box on a controversial call. Reigning national player of the year Casey Nogueira then fired a blistering shot that hit the bottom of the crossbar, landed on the goal line and bounced just out. “I was like ‘Oh man, that stinks,’” Nogueira said. “But you just have to keep playing and hopefully get the rebound.” That sequence typified the entire game that saw UNC come close on many occasions. “We have got to finish the chances that are created and we’re given,” coach Anson Dorrance said. “We can’t rely on the gods of good luck and bad luck to win and lose games for us.” The Tar Heels took 40 total shots on the day, the most shots ever taken without a goal in the history of the program. Despite the disappointing draw, the biggest loss occurred Friday when senior winger Nikki Washington went down with a leg “He’s a little undersized, but he plays a lot bigger than his size,” Yates said. “He’s a lot stronger than people think. “He runs very, very good routes for being a true freshman, being so poised and everything.” Highsmith found out he would be starting on Monday, as an injury to Dwight Jones has left the spot up for grabs so far this season. Since then, he has practiced with the first team and caught about 200 balls per day in preparation. And now, No. 88 says he should be starting every game — at least until Jones’ return. Fellow freshman wideout Jheranie Boyd, sitting nearby, said he knew all week that this game would be special for his new teammate. “They say a lot of the ECU players go to ECU because they didn’t get an offer from Carolina,” Boyd said. “Well, ECU missed out on one.” Contact the Sports Editor at

“Auburn did a great job,” coach Anson Dorrance said. “Their defenders were very hardworking and tenacious.” UNC’s 1-0 win against LSU was the Tar Heels’ third 1-0 win of the season. The 4-5-1 defense helped the Tigers keep the score low and the game in reach. “Their game plan I thought was superb, and they made it very difficult for us to get in,” Dorrance said. When UNC’s Jessica McDonald put the Heels on the board late in the second half, the Tigers ditched their stifling defense and tried to attack. “We didn’t really solve (their defense) early,” Dorrance said. “There was no guarantee that we were going to get that one, and we could have easily come out of that game as a 1-0 loser. “Those adverse games build up a certain kind of athletic character, and you want them on your schedule. You want a lot of tight games. It helps you build a very strong and powerful self-belief.”

the first time since 1987 and fourth straight against Duke for the first time since the 1954-1955 seasons. It came against a Blue Devils team that entered the contest with a 4-0 record. “We knew it was going to be a close game,” coach Elmar Bolowich said. “Duke, defensively, is very strong. It was a true test run in this game, and our boys did extremely well.” The Blue Devils’ defensive reputation may have preceded them, but North Carolina’s unit proved to be more successful. UNC held Duke without a score — or a shot — in the first half. North Carolina’s defense allowed the Blue Devils’ only goal with 12 minutes remaining in the second half. But the pressure didn’t start with the team’s defenders, Bolowich said. “It starts with our forwards,” he said. “We were putting so much pressure on (Duke), it was hard for them to get into any kind of rhythm.” Offensively, the North Carolina Contact the Sports Editor forwards capitalized off a tentative at Duke defense, outshooting the Blue

DURHAM — In both Friday’s 1-0 battle with Louisiana State and Sunday’s 0-0 tie with Auburn, No. 1 North Carolina faced similar defenses that stymied the Tar Heel offensive attack. Both SEC schools employed a 4-5-1 defense that challenged UNC’s forwards and midfielders. Each team placed four defenders in the back along with five midfielders, while having only one forward on UNC’s end of the field. The riling scheme places emphasis on preventing a score rather than scoring­— something that didn’t surprise UNC midfielder Tobin Heath. “It’s very frustrating, but at the same time, this is what we expect to play against the majority of the teams,” said Heath, who played all 110 minutes of the double overtime game against Auburn and all but six minutes against LSU. “The most important thing when we play against a team that may not be up to our caliber is we have to come out in the first 15 minutes and play really hard and get an early goal,” she said. “The longer we don’t get a goal, the harder it is for us.” The 0-0 match against Auburn was UNC’s first scoreless tie since from page 10 September 2004 at Tennessee. three goals in the two games, while senior Melanie Brill and freshman injury just after the start of the sec- Kolojejchick each added a pair for the Tar Heels, who outshot their ond half.

The injury, in addition to the tie, coach Karen Shelton said. “I think (the streak) is a total made for a disheartening weekend overall for the No. 1 team in the team effort because we defend from front to back, so it starts country. “I’m disappointed.

especially getting a new coach,” Watchempino said. “The guys’ mindset is just completely different this year than it was last year.” Tar Heel Adam Cunningham finished fourth to round out the team’s three top-five finishes, while Zack Dawson took fifth. Coach Peter Watson echoed Watchempino’s hopes for improvement as he looks to rebuild the smaller men’s program and focus the women on their goals. “UNC men’s cross country is not a very well-respected program at this point, and we’re going to add some respectability to it this year, move forward, and place significantly higher in regional’s and ACC’s,” he said. “We’ve got all the girls in, everybody’s healthy, and we really are going to have a shot to get to nationals.”

Passing game at 7-7 in the first quarter, but it was just an appetizer for what was to come from the passing game. Midway through the second quarter, Yates slung a high, looping spiral 50 yards down the middle of the field to freshman Jheranie Boyd, where it bounced off the receiver’s hands and chest before Boyd finally gained control of it for a 59-yard touchdown. “I threw the ball — and he’s so fast I knew he was going to run under it — and all I saw was he tipped the ball and then my heart dropped,” Yates said. “I couldn’t see him, but then everyone went crazy.” Lost in the flurry of offense was another stingy performance from North Carolina’s defense. The Tar Heels’ front seven limited East Carolina to 55 yards rushing, and the Pirates could only muster three points in the second half. But when the game tightened after an ECU field goal brought the score to 24-17, it was UNC’s offense rather than the defense that sealed the win. On the first play of the resulting drive, Yates found Highsmith for a 43-yard gain to set up the final touchdown that put the game out of reach. “I always thought our offense could do it, and we did do it in the fourth quarter of that game last week,” safety Deunta Williams said. “This week they just put it all together — the beginning, middle and the end.”

So when she crossed the finish line of the UNC Challenge last Friday at Finley Fields, Lucena was shocked to see her final time: 17:30.90. “I’m so happy, I still can’t believe it,” Lucena said. “It’s a 45 second (personal record), and the season is just beginning, so I’m really excited.” The freshman’s time was good enough for a first-place finish Friday, leading the UNC women’s cross country team to second place — even while the top three runners on the team were sidelined to rest. “Back in high school, I was the only one that could run my times,” she said. “So I would either have to run with a guy or just by myself, and here I actually have people to train with.” Redshirt freshman Caroline Kirby, a transfer student from N.C. State, ran unattached from UNC and took fourth place, while sophomore Cara Hayes finished fifth. On the men’s team, sophomore Evan Watchempino took first in the men’s 8,000-meter race with a time of 24:57.10. “My two years have been amazing, and I feel like the program is really on the uprise right now,


of the shooting circle and slapping it into the net to seal a 4-0 victory. “There are certain games that you just get really excited for, and Old Dominion is one of them because you always know you’re going to get a battle,” Shelton said. Against Longwood on Sunday, UNC looked lethargic early but regained their explosive offensive form midway through the game, scoring four goals in about seven minutes to put the Lancers away. After taking the lead on a penalty corner strike from Brill midway through the first half, the Tar Heels played at a deliberate pace. UNC attempted to navigate Longwood’s bunker defense without finding much success. “We were passing the ball with precision. We were creating some chances,” Shelton said. “I think we just got a little bit too patient.” But with just seconds remaining before the break, Brill struck again on a penalty corner, taking a feed from Falgowski and burying a shot into the bottom left corner of the goal. Brill’s second goal, her team-leading 13th of the season, gave UNC an added boost heading into halftime. “Getting up 2-0 is really big for

Devils 17-5. “For whatever reason, Duke was dropping off and backing up and letting us play,” Brown said. “Right away, guys like myself and Zach Loyd and Billy Schuler were saying, ‘Let’s keep the ball right in front of their defense.’” The strategy proved to be successful. Schuler buried the team’s first strike midway through the first half. From 20 yards out, he took a left-footed shot that glanced off the left post and past the Duke goalkeeper. Schuler also helped engineer the game-winning goal when he found Alex Walters at the top of the penalty box with 22 minutes remaining in the game. Walters sent the pass between two defenders to give Brown the open shot. “I saw the keeper slide to the near post,” Brown said. “I hit it as hard as I could to the back post. “For a while there it got interesting. We’re just happy to hold them off and continue to be unbeaten.” Contact the Sports Editor at

Yates and UNC offense click on all cylinders

Highsmith sends message to ECU

By David Reynolds

SportSaturday Editor

Quarterback T.J. Yates had heard all the criticisms of No. 24 North Carolina’s offense. His receivers couldn’t catch. His rushers couldn’t find the creases. His offensive line couldn’t keep him upright. On Saturday, he finally got his rebuttal. “It was big for us. Kind of all week we’d been hearing some rumors of them saying some stuff in the media about this and that,” Yates said, referring to comments from East Carolina defenders. “We kind of took that to heart and proved the point that we can run the ball, we can pass the ball, we can protect, we can catch.” Yates and the rest of the Tar Heels’ offense took out their frustrations against an overmatched Pirate defense, exploding for 433 yards of total offense to lead UNC (3-0) to a 31-17 victory against ECU (1-2). UNC’s junior signal caller was a model of efficiency all game, completing 19 of 24 passes for 227 yards and two touchdowns. Yates spread it to seven different receivers, picking apart East Carolina’s secondary with short completions interspersed with a few deep attempts. Freshman Erik Highsmith was Yates’ main target, reeling in six catches for 113 yards and

There was Erik Highsmith — a true freshman in his first career start — pointing and blowing kisses to the crowd after his first collegiate touchdown catch. But he wasn’t beckoning to the home North Carolina fans. He was looking directly at the purple and gold corner of the stadium. Sure, the celebration cost his team 15 yards on the ensuing kickoff, but for a moment, Highsmith had his mind set on revenge. A product of Vanceboro, Highsmith grew up about 20 minutes away from East Carolina. The Pirates recruited him, but when it came time for scholarship offers, nothing came from the local school. And he didn’t forget it. “Those purple and gold boys over there,” Highsmith

a touchdown. “I thought T.J. Yates was outstanding today — his composure, his poise, his percentage of completions,” coach Butch Davis said. “He’s keeping guys alive. He’s keeping everybody in the routes.” Shaun Draughn and the UNC ground game also responded to questions of its effectiveness, as the unit combined for 148 yards and two touchdowns. Draughn led the way with 84 yards, while Ryan Houston netted both scores. Davis said the experience gained in last week’s fourth quarter against Connecticut helped the Tar Heels figure out how to consistently move the ball and turn the page on the era of wide receivers Hakeem Nicks and Brandon Tate. “I think we kind of carried a little bit of that confidence and a little bit of that mind-set in how we would like to how to play into this ball game,” Davis said. UNC’s scoring spree began when Yates found Highsmith for a 16-yard pass to knot the game

said. “I mean, I tried to just embarrass them a little bit.” That celebration came after Highsmith caught a 16-yard touchdown pass in the first quarter of UNC’s 31-17 win, and it was the exclamation point of No. 88’s coming out party. The freshman caught six passes for 113 yards and a touchdown. He became the first true freshman to post a 100-yard receiving game since another guy who wore No. 88 did it three times in 2006. While it’s too early to start making Hakeem Nicks comparisons, the choice of number is not missed by many. “I don’t know who is going to wear those numbers in the next 25 years, but whoever comes in, I would ask

UNC attackers provided heavy pressure on the Duke defense, which prevented any Blue Devil rhythm.

With the score 1-0 against No. 11 Duke, midfielder Cameron Brown booted a shot headed over the goal. Dip, dip, dip, he commanded. It did, the scoreboard lit up and the crowds cheered. The only problem? The ball hadn’t gone in the goal. “I knew it was over and high, and that’s why I was dropping straight back,” he said. “It guess it was a little tough for everyone else to see up there.” No goal, no problem. Minutes later, he netted the game-winning goal for a 2-1 victory and UNC’s (4-0-1) fourth straight victory over Duke. His goal delivered a blow to Duke’s unbeaten streak and secured an addition to UNC’s record books. “It’s unbelievable,” Brown said. “Feeling like the basketball team, you know?” North Carolina maintained its unbeaten streak en route to winning its first two ACC matches for

result. It was a fitting end to a frustrating weekend of games for the team at the Duke Nike Classic. On Friday, Louisiana State

Just moments after Kelsey Kolojejchick slapped a bouncing rebound past Old Dominion goalkeeper Kelly Driscoll to give No. 2 North Carolina a late 3-0 lead in Friday’s game, Driscoll became visibly upset, throwing her gloves to the ground and chewing out her defense. Such sentiments have become common among Tar Heel field hockey opponents, who have failed to tally a goal in UNC’s last six games and have been outscored 51-2 through nine games this season.
