Five months after a campus protest gained national attention, student leaders sat down again for a public discussion on free speech. The discussion — held in honor of the campuswide First Amendment Day celebration — largely focused on senior Haley Koch’s participation in a protest of U.S. Rep. Tom Tancredo, R-Colo. His April 14 visit was hosted by Youth for Western Civilization. YWC President Nikhil Patel and media lawyer Hugh Stevens joined Koch on Thursday in Carroll Hall to discuss whether she was exercising her First Amendment rights or infringing

Responsibilities of UNC’s student publications

Greg Lukianoff speaks about open discussion

To kick off First Amendment day, a UNC Liberty Tree was planted in front of Carroll Hall, the home of the School of Journalism and Mass Communication. The tree is meant to symbolize the elm tree near Boston Commons where early American patriots first spoke of the need for a new nation founded on liberty.

Campus leaders read from controversial books, including Chancellor Holden Thorp, who read from “Catcher in the Rye.” “It’s a great testament to the University that we can stand up and say we value and we’re brave enough to face these topics,” said Student Body Vice President David Bevevino.

Editors of The Carolina Review, The Daily Tar Heel, and new liberal print publication Campus BluePrint addressed issues concerning student media publications, including the roles and responsibilities to their student readers and the missions of their publications in contributing to campus conversations.

Keynote speaker Greg Lukianoff, president of the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education, spoke about the value of open discussion, especially the protection of hate speech by the First Amendment. “The speech may have had no value, but the discussion is priceless,” Lukianoff said.

ple come to the crisis unit from the Chapel Hill-Carrboro area for cocaine each year. “It’s a drug that’s very, very popular, very available and a hard habit to kick,” he said. “Like any other drug it can destroy lives, families.”

People purchase cocaine from street vendors, open-air drug dealers, from apartments or through delivery.

Chapel Cocaine is often purchased in $50 Hill & to $60 1-gram bags, Chapel Hill Carrboro narcotics investigator Sgt. Jabe Charlotte Hunter said. Crack cocaine is Atlanta cheaper. Carrboro investigators knew of about 30 dealers two years ago, but activity has slowed since, Peloquin said.

Missing front teeth, burn marks on lips and fingers — the Carrboro narcotics investigator knows it when he sees it. Crack cocaine is the most frequently used drug in Carrboro, more than marijuana, Cpl. Jason Peloquin said. “We enforce everything equally,” he said. “It’s just that crack cocaine is so much more frequent.” Despite police efforts to cut down on cocaine use in Chapel Hill and Carrboro, arrests in recent years have stayed constant. Because it’s easily accessible, cocaine — in both crack and powder forms — is also one of the top two drugs in Chapel Hill, said Sgt. Jabe Hunter, Chapel Hill police narcotics investigator. “There’s demand,” he said. Of about 95 people who came into the crisis unit at the Freedom House Recovery Center off Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard in September, 35 were treated for cocaine, program director Bob Carmines said. Of those 35, about 10 were from Chapel Hill or Carrboro. The center, located in Chapel Hill, serves 18 counties, mostly Orange, Person and Chatham, Carmines said. Carmines estimated that 175 to 200 peo-

A need for constant enforcement Chapel Hill police have ramped up enforcement of drug laws in recent years, Hunter said. Strengthened by following up on every tip and arrest, enforcement has led to a decrease in open-air drug markets, he said. Sometimes a routine follow-up turns into a big bust. Chapel Hill police’s midSeptember find of 197.6 grams of cocaine led to the arrest of seven current or former UNC students. “We follow up wherever leads take us,” Hunter said, “Not all of the time are these cases successful.” Police find cocaine mostly in 1-gram bags — enough for a few highs, he said. Finding a gram means there’s more out there. The gram usually will have been chipped off of one kilogram someone brought to the region, Hunter said. After an arrest, police attempt to move higher up the chain of sale. “You can’t make any generalizations that any one type of person or gender will be a

UNC researchers are already scheming ways to win the war against cancer with the help of a $13 to $20 million grant received Wednesday. The UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center is one of 12 centers across the nation chosen to receive federal funding for the next five years through the Cancer Genome Atlas Grant. The 12 centers, including UNC, will conduct research that could potentially pave the way for a breakthrough in the mapping of the cancer genome. The project aims to put the University at the forefront of scientific advances throughout the nation. “This is the defining project of our generation,” said Dr. Neil Hayes, an assistant professor of clinical research and project codirector at the Lineberger Center. “It puts us right in the center of one of the most important medical questions being asked at the end of the first decade of the 21st century.” Hayes said the research on the cancer genome will rival that of the Human Genome Project conducted in the 1990s. The grant is part of a national initiative to research genomic changes that occur in cancer and how they affect the rapid and uncontrolled spread of the disease throughout the body. Hayes said he hopes that the initiative will revolutionize scientists’ ability to understand why cancer patients have cancer, what treatments patients will respond to and why some patients respond to the disease better than others. The Lineberger Center was chosen because it is a comprehensive cancer center, a designation provided by the National Cancer Institute to only 40 institutions in the country. It is also the only public center of this type in the state. Other hospitals have departments that specialize in cancer research, but the Lineberger Center focuses on both research and patient care. The facility has the ability to bring together scientists from the entire University. The center provides clinicians and clinical services to patients in

The cocaine is distributed through several hands before it gets to Chapel Hill and Carrboro. Often it will come in as a kilogram. It is usually already fully cut or processed when it comes in.

When it comes to cities like Atlanta and Charlotte, it is redistributed to top drug dealers who may sell it in powder form or cut it to a less potent form. To cut the cocaine, or "stomp on it," requires a chemical like Levamisole, Lactose or Inositol. "That's the best way to get your money," Peloquin said.

Cocaine is mostly grown in South America and ships out in large quantities in powder form to bigger cities in the U.S. A decline in availability began July 2008 “because of the wars in Mexico or agressive border enforcement," Carrboro narcotics investigator Jason Peloquin said.

Cop passes out drunk in stranger’s bed

A

From staff and wire reports

U.S. Capitol Police officer was arrested for unlawful entry early Sunday morning. Whether he remembers the entrance is up for debate. He was found passed out drunk in a local woman’s bed. The officer, Thomas Patrick McMahon, 34, did not know the woman who owned the apartment. Police said they do not know why McMahon chose to sleep in her bed. Arlington police spokeswoman Crystal Nosal said when police arrived at 1 a.m., McMahon was still asleep. Police think he walked through the front door into the apartment. McMahon is now on paid administrative leave. Kimberly Schneider, a Capitol Police spokeswoman, said an investigation is pending. NOTED. Maybe you shouldn’t eat all of your candy on Halloween. A new study suggests that children who eat a lot of candy are more likely to be arrested for violent behavior as adults. Of the children studied who ate sweets daily, 69 percent were later arrested for violent behavior. The study was published in the October issue of the British Journal of Psychiatry.

Pregnancy issues avoided with diabetes treatments Pregnant women treated for mild gestational diabetes are less likely to need cesarean sections or have serious problems related to birthing larger babies. The study, which was printed in the Oct. 1 issue of the New Enlgand Journal of Medicine, shows the value of checking and treating mothers and newborns for diabetes-like conditions caused by pregnancy. Dr. John M. Thorp, an obstetrics and gynecology professor at the UNC School of Medicine, coauthored the study. The findings address a long standing controversy over the benefits and effectiveness of treating mothers for these conditions. Gestational diabetes develops in roughly 4 percent of all pregnant women in the U.S. This leads to larger and fatter babies than average because of higher blood sugar levels in mothers that translates to extra energy in newborns stored as fat. Those larger babies are more likely to need cesarean delivery, suffer from damage to their shoulders during birth and be at a greater risk of being obese.

Study shows a record year for reported deer crashes Automobile crashes in North Carolina involving deer reached a record high in 2008. Despite a smaller total number of car crashes and vehicle miles driven, last year saw 416 more crashes reported to police involving deer than in 2007. Nearly 80 percent of the crashes occur between 6 p.m. and 6 a.m., according to the study. Almost 50 percent of the crashes take place between October and December. Deer were noted as a factor in 9.2 percent of reported crashes in North Carolina. Wake County had the most frequently reported cases, with 1,084. The findings come from a study by UNC and the UNC Highway Safety Research Center.

ing a visual and thematic bridge between the two galleries.

N.C. environmental groups The Ackland Art Museum will support energy legislation open its doors Saturday to display The avant-garde the treasures of its collection in an exhibit that promises to be a who’s who of abstract expressionism. Centered around the museum’s latest major acquisition, “Sentinel II” by Seymour Lipton, the exhibit is presented in two galleries displaying the avant-garde in one and guardians and heroes in the other. “The Guardian and the AvantGarde: Seymour Lipton’s Sentinal II in Context,” came about after Shirley Siegel gave the museum funds to purchase a piece in honor of her husband, Sidney. Emily Kass, director of the Ackland and co-curator of the exhibit, said the piece is particularly interesting because of the way Lipton shaped his sculpture, which is made of flat sheets of metal. “It allowed Lipton to sculpt it almost and create this armature,” she said of the metal. “And then he covered it with bronze, which he worked with his hands, so that gives it a very tactile sense.” Lipton’s statue rests on a podium —From staff and wire reports. in the middle of the exhibit, creat-

The Clean Energy Works campaign urged comprehensive clean energy legislation in a conference call Thursday morning. The American Clean Energy Leadership Act of 2009 is pending in the U.S. Senate. The bill would fund clean energy technology and make companies and buildings more energy-efficient and oil companies more transparent. North Carolina groups included in the conference call included Environment North Carolina, the Conservation Council of North Carolina, O2energies, Inc., and N.C. Rep. Grier Martin, D-Wake. Margaret Hartzell, global warming advocate for Environment North Carolina, said that clean energy action would create 50,000 jobs in North Carolina alone. “This broad coalition represents over 12 million Americans calling for action,” Hartzell said. “This is the answer to our struggling economy and protecting our climate.”

The Ackland had a chance to go through its collection, pulling modern works that have not been displayed in years. This gallery displays some of the museum’s modern gems. “Here is a sampling of our 20th century collection, focusing on the avant-garde — artists who were looking at Picasso, at new ways of creating art, new styles,” Kass said of the gallery. Walking through the room, viewers get a glimpse of the importance of technology and progress, the advent of photography as art, the impact of cubism and abstract expressionism. Abstract expressionism is a movement marked by the importance of emotions and feelings more than subject matter. Hans Hofmann’s “Undulating Expanse” embodies this notion of the importance of color and shape to convey emotion. “He’s using these kinds of shapes that just flow out of his mind,” Kass said. “The gesture of the art-

ist becomes much more significant than actually telling a story where one knows the beginning and the end.”

Guardians and heroes Entering the adjoining gallery, the viewer steps into a world of mythology from the ancient to the present. “A lot of abstract expressionists, Lipton included, were very interested in psychology and various kinds of mythology,” said Timothy Riggs, curator of collections and co-curator of the exhibit. Divided into four sections, the gallery tackles the concepts of guardians in life and death, women of power, conquest and sacrifice, and national heroes. The show includes work from as far away as ancient Egypt and eighth century B.C. Assyria. It also includes some familiar artists including Andy Warhol, Pablo Picasso and Albrecht Dürer.

UNC grad hopes to o≠er a≠ordable bike rentals By Matt bewley Staff Writer

Hasan Abdullah’s bicycle was stolen on campus two years ago. And now, he wants to ensure other local bicycle owners don’t suffer the same fate. With WeCycles, the company he founded, Abdullah hopes to create a bike rental service on campus and around Chapel Hill and Carrboro. Abdullah said the program, if approved, would use 24-hour electronic kiosks where customers could swipe their One Cards or credit cards to rent bikes at an hourly fee. Yearly memberships would also be available. The prices aren’t set, but WeCycles director Ibraheem Khalifa said the hourly rate will be less than a cup of coffee. “We can’t tell you if it’s a large cup or a small cup,” Khalifa said. Abdullah, a Chapel Hill native who graduated from UNC last year,

said he has always wanted to help the town grow. The idea for WeCycles came to him during the summer of 2008. The following fall, Abdullah enrolled in Kenan-Flagler Business School’s Launching the Venture program, in which students and professors help aspiring entrepreneurs formulate a business plan and learn how to lure investors. Khalifa, an engineer, teamed up with Abdullah in March with hopes to design the company’s kiosks. At a Sept. 14 business meeting, Abdullah and Khalifa proposed their idea to members of the Chapel Hill Town Council. They need the town’s help in placing the rental kiosks near bus stops, greenways and bike lanes. The council referred the proposal to the town’s planning department. Mayor pro tem Jim Ward asked the two how their proposal would involve the Blue Urban Bike pro-

gram, which already loans bikes in Chapel Hill and Carrboro and is run by the ReCYCLEry. Although Abdullah hasn’t contacted ReCYCLEry director Chris Richmond about collaborating, Richmond said he is interested. “If we could strike a partnership that gets more folks riding, that’s going to improve funding for infrastructure — more greenways, bike lanes and better signage,” he said. Council member Jim Merritt said the board won’t vote on WeCycles until it has more details from the planning department. But that won’ t discourage Abdullah and Khalifa, who said they already hope to expand WeCycles to Raleigh. “There is no time of day when I’m not thinking about this project,” Khalifa said.

Researchers said that they hope that the grant will allow the center to draw donations from independent sources and reduce its financial dependence on the University. This should provide the hospital with more autonomy and allow UNC to direct its funds elsewhere. De Graffenreid said she hopes the grant will enable the center to hire more scientists and produce more research related to genetics and cancer, with the ultimate goal of improving health care for North Carolina and the rest of the nation. “This has extraordinary potential to help us better understand and treat this disease,” Obama said in a press release Wednesday.

Koch said she and the other protesters were simply voicing their opinions and did not force Tancredo to cut short his speech. When questioned by a panelist as to whether she believed certain voices should be stifled, Koch said that in some cases, they should. “I don’t feel their voices contribute to a civil debate or an intellectual climate,” Koch said. “I hope that students will self-organize to decide what is acceptable on a campus community.” Patel disagreed. He said the protest made some conservative students feel they couldn’t openly express their views on campus. Stevens, a UNC alumnus, said protesting is fundamental to expressing diverse opinions, but that Koch’s approach was a violation of Tancredo’s rights.

While drugs like heroin and prescription drugs trend in fads, cocaine is almost always popular, he said. Cocaine withdrawal is psychological — not physical — but Carmines said he sees many repeat offenders. “All we can do is get them off the streets,” he said. “But it’s easy access everywhere.”

Sales become less obvious Peloquin said residents buy cocaine from dealers on the street, from sellers’ apartments or by delivery. Jennifer Watson, 23, lives in a recovery house and has met many former cocaine users on her path to sobriety.

The charge of disrupting the peace was dismissed last month. “The University’s role should be to set a tone and a setting for civil discourse,” Stevens said. “Nobody benefits from this kind of situation on either end.” Sam Wardle, a senior journalism major, said he organized the panel to discuss civil protest on campus following the April 14 incident. “I knew they were all intelligent, reasonable and articulate people,” Wardle said. “We wanted to bring them together to show people they could hold a civil discussion.” Stevens said he considered the discussion vital for the University. “If we don’t have the ability to hear each other, then the value of the speech is lost because we’re not really listening,” he said.

In spite of declining numbers of known dealers and open drug trade, Hunter said the number of arrests has stayed about constant. “There’s really no way to truly know how much is out there,” Hunter said.

David Meieran of Pittsburgh begins his protest of the G-20 while waiting for the Peoples’ March to begin. Meieran wore a polar bear mask to show support for the Pittsburgh City Council’s decision not to pass legislation that would ban people from wearing masks in Pittsburgh. “The G-20 lacks legitimacy,” Meieran said. “The small group of people who are responsible for the bulk of carbon emissions

shouldn’t be making decisions for the whole world.” The march was organized by the Thomas Merton Center Anti-War Committee and endorsed by several groups.

OWASA increases water rates this month Staff Writer

Water conservation by the University is leading to higher water bills for residents, according to the Orange Water and Sewer Authority. Customers will see a 9.75 percent rate increase in October bills. An average household uses 5,000 gallons of water per month, which used to cost $68.24. After the increase, the average monthly bill will be $74.92, the authority’s spokesman Greg Feller said. Rate increases are not uncom-

mon when demand decreases. UNC started using reclaimed water, which is highly treated wastewater, instead of drinking water for non-drinking purposes. The campus chiller plants, which provide air conditioning, use the most reclaimed water, Feller said in an e-mail. This year, he said UNC will use 660,000 gallons of reclaimed water instead of potable water daily. OWASA needs to make up for that loss in revenue by charging more, Feller said. Junior Lauren Breedlove, who

Feller said that in the long run, water conservation should save money. He said that the system won’t need to expand as much or as soon and that OWASA can avoid the high cost of developing a new water source. “Water conservation extends the time in which our current water supply and treatment systems will be adequate to meet the community’s needs,” he said. Connection fees from new developments are another source of revenue for OWASA, but because people aren’t building much, the number of new connections is expected to decrease 70 percent by

National and World News Al-Maliki unveils national alliance

Senior U.S. diplomat, Iran o∞cial discuss nuclear facilities, activity

BAGHDAD (MCT) — Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki on Thursday unveiled his alliance for parliamentary elections in January, billing the ticket as a national, nonsectarian force to challenge a rival Shiite Muslim slate with support among the country’s religious authorities. The announcement ended weeks of speculation over whether al-Maliki’s State of Law block would join the Iraqi National Alliance, a more Islamist faction that includes the largest Shiite party and supporters of rebel cleric Muqtada al-Sadr. Al-Maliki appears to be seizing on voters’ disenchantment with the religious parties and positioning himself as the candidate who can reach across sectarian lines.

GENEVA (MCT) — A senior U.S. diplomat and Iran’s chief nuclear negotiator met one-onone Thursday in Geneva in what appeared to be the highestlevel official contact between the countries since Iran’s 1979 Islamic revolution. The meeting between Undersecretary of State William Burns and the Iranian, Saeed Jalili, took place during a break in negotiations at a villa outside Geneva among the United States, Iran and five other nations. It was announced by State Department spokesman Robert Wood, who offered no other details. Senior U.S. officials had said Wednesday that they’d use the sessions in Geneva to press Iran to pull back on its nuclear devel-

opment program, which Western governments charge is aimed at fashioning a nuclear weapon. The Burns-Jalili encounter is the latest attempt by the Obama administration to engage Iran, which Washington also has threatened with “crippling” sanctions if it doesn’t suspend the nuclear work. The State Department allowed, Manoucher Mottaki Iran’s foreign minister, to visit Washington on Wednesday, waiving regulations that usually confine Iranian diplomats within a 25-mile radius of downtown Manhattan. Mottaki didn’t meet with U.S. officials but visited Iran’s interests section, which is overseen by Pakistan, because the United States and Iran have no diplomatic relations.

Bernanke defends A super currency Obama slammed will weaken dollar for Olympics bid bank proposals WA S H I N G T O N , D . C . (MCT) — Federal Reser ve Board Chairman Ben Bernanke defended his proposals Thursday for consumer protection of mortgage and a mechanism to dismantle failed megafinancial institutions and said his plan would not create “toobig-to-fail” banks. The central bank faces major opposition from Democratic lawmakers who are drafting legislation to create an independent agency that would strip consumer-protection supervision and enforcement responsibility from the Fed and other bank regulators. Lawmakers have lambasted the Fed for failing to protect consumers from subprime and other types of problem loans.

WA S H I N G T O N , D . C . (MCT) — Russia and China are advocating the creation of a new super currency, which Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke said Thursday would weaken the dollar if it were to be established. “It would weaken the dollar, and we would have to watch for any inflationary consequences of that,” Bernanke said during the question and answer segment of a House Financial Services Committee hearing. Bernanke added that the dollar is not at any immediate risk of losing its status as a reserve currency; however, he acknowledged that if the U.S. doesn’t put its “economic house in order,” risk could eventually grow for the U.S. currency.

WA S H I N G T O N , D . C . (MCT) — When President Barack Obama decided to go to Denmark, he hoped to win international support Friday for the U.S. bid for the 2016 Olympics to be in Chicago. He also generated a storm of criticism from the right at home. Some Republicans and rightwing commentators are saying it’s a waste of presidential time when he should be doing other things, such as deciding on an Afghanistan strategy. Some say Chicago is unworthy, calling it crime-ridden and filled with corrupt cronies waiting to line their pockets. Obama initially said he was too busy to go. No American president has traveled abroad before to present the U.S. Olympics bid.

UNC system considered a ‘military-friendly’ place By Emily Ellis Staff Writer

A national magazine recently recognized four UNC-system schools for their military programs, making the UNC system one of the most “military friendly” public university systems in the country. Eas t Carolina University, UNC-Wilmington, N.C. Central University and Western Carolina University were named in G.I. Jobs’ ranking of military-friendly schools, a publication devoted to helping service men and women find careers after the military. The list, put out annually, is based on a survey that evaluates certifications, programs and benefits offered to the military at universities, such as outreach programs, scholarships and discounts provided to active duty, veterans and military spouses, said Dan Fazio, managing editor for G.I. Jobs. Other public university systems with multiple schools on this year’s list include those in Pennsylvania and New York, Fazio said. The four universities recognized from the UNC system accept the GI Bill to help pay for tuition and also have programs to enhance the relationship between the university

and the military. Three of the four have ROTC programs. Kimrey Rhinehardt, vice president for federal relations for the UNC system, said a systemwide tuition policy allows active duty military and their families stationed in North Carolina to qualify for in-state tuition. Maj. Megan Mangan, recruiting operations officer for an ROTC partnership between Duke University and NCCU, said the way the program is designed could have contributed to NCCU’s recognition. The partnership allows students to be part of a diverse group, which adds a depth that other programs can’t offer, Mangan said. Jeff Netznik, military outreach associate director at ECU, said ECU’s proximity to bases such as the U.S. Coast Guard Air Station Elizabeth City and naval and marine base Camp Lejeune promote interaction with the military population. ECU offers classes on base that count for university credit and online classes that members of the military can take from anywhere. Netznik said he travels to the bases four days a week. The online program offers more than 60 degrees and certificates

DTH ONLINE: Read about studentsoldiers at dailytarheel.com. and has a higher rate of participation than the traditional classes, Netznik said. “With our online programs we can pretty much cover the whole state of N.C.,” he said. “We let them know we’re available.” WCU offers credit for technical experience gained in the field. WCU will give credit in its emergency medical care program for skills learned as a U.S. Army Special Forces medic. The program sets WCU apart from most schools, said Chuck Gross, director of military education at WCU. “One of those guys can come to Western having never attended college and have 56 credit hours to start,” Gross said. Despite all this, Rhinehardt said the UNC system sees military relations as a place where universities can improve. “You cannot look at the future of North Carolina without factoring in the military presence,” she said.

Town o∞cials reject expansion property Cite parking, location issues By John Taylor Staff Writer

In a search for expansion property, the Chapel Hill police, fire, and recreation departments came up empty-handed this week. Chapel Hill Town Manager Roger Stancil released a memorandum Wednesday declining to purchase Dawson Hall, a site off of Interstate-40 with more office space. “The site was not a perfect fit — it’s incompatible” Assistant Town Manager Bruce Heflin said. The memo cites a lack of parking, incompatibility with zoning laws and the concern that the building is too far from the center of town. Town staff said that while the building itself is acceptable, the site does not have enough space to suit the workers and other Chapel Hill businesses. This decision poses a problem for the Chapel Hill Police Department, which expected to have a station in Dawson Hall. Twice as many people are working in the station at 828 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. than planned for when the building was constructed in 1981, Chapel Hill Town Council member Ed Harrison said. The size of the parking lot at the proposed site was a major factor in the decision to nix purchasing plans, Heflin said. When combined with police officers’ personal vehicles, the squad cars would fill up parking spaces, he said. The board considered ways

to avoid parking congestion at Dawson Hall. In his memorandum, Stancil said police vehicles could park further away or officers could take squad cars home. But the Town Council concluded there is not enough time to fix details to establish Dawson Hall as a permanent site, Heflin said. “We couldn’t all get to the same point at the same time,” Harrison said, referring to the different town departments. Some said the location wasn’t central enough. The current police station is by the intersection of Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and Hillsborough Street, but Dawson Hall is on the outskirts of town. “The location is a bit too remote for our departments,” Heflin said. The town also would have to obtain a special use permit for the site. This leaves the police department still in need of a new station. “Our priority is to get better space for these departments,” Harrison said. Departments will have to make due with the current facilities until the council discusses the subject again in November.

coal, fuel oil and natural gas. Tim Aucoin, the plant’s regulatory compliance coordinator, said the facility monitors all pollutant emissions, but only nitrous oxides and sulfur dioxide — key components of ozone depletion and acid rain — are regulated. “Carbon dioxide just isn’t a monitored gas yet,” he said. Laura Stevens, a representative from the national Sierra Club’s “Moving Campuses Beyond Coal” campaign, said carbon dioxide should be monitored, and that in 2007, the plant emitted 320,000 tons of global warming pollutants. “That’s like having over 50,000 cars on the road,” she said. The Sierra Club’s program collaborated with UNC students to protest the cogeneration plant’s practices. The protest, held in the Pit on Monday, gathered 280 supporters to voice their opposition to the burning of coal. Sara Mishamandani, a junior, was among those protesting. “A lot of people didn’t even realize we have the plant on campus,” she said. “Their eyes were opened up by the amount of carbon dioxide emissions.” DuBose said the University is committed to reducing the plant’s carbon footprint.

Electricity produced by the facility, as a byproduct of steam production, accounts for approximately 25 to 30 percent of all electricity used on campus. Coal Steam

In order to reach this goal, the University has produced the Climate Action Plan, which details ways to reduce campus emissions.

The plant will begin testing more environmentally friendly fuels next year, Aucoin said. But the facility has to wait for the go-ahead from

Mishamandani said the University’s efforts are a good first step, but not a final solution. She said the University must take more immediate action to see results. “They do want to make the effort,” she said. “Our main thing is they’re not making that effort fast enough.” Contact the University Editor at udesk@unc.edu.

Tar Heels out to bounce back Haydel carries UVa. has won last three games By Chris Hempson Assistant Sports Editor

Virginia vs. North Carolina (0-3)

(2-1)

Kenan Stadium, 12 p.m.

HEAD-TO-HEAD UNC rush vs. UVa front seven

UNC was stifled for just 17 yards last week at Georgia Tech. UNC looks to get back on track against the No. 11 run defense in the ACC. Ryan Houston is a good bet to score multiple short-yardage touchdowns. Edge: UNC While Virginia is not good defensively, their

has not been the issue, as they UNC pass vs. secondary have posted decent numbers. To be fair, UVa secondary most teams haven’t tested them, with running lanes aplenty.

Edge: UVa

UVa rush vs. UNC front seven

UVa. hasn’t averaged more than 1.8 yards per carry against a FBS opponent. Going up against an agitated UNC defense that is still smarting from Ga. Tech’s stampede, UVa. might be lucky to average that. Edge: UNC

UVa pass vs. UNC secondary

The Cavaliers’ passing has gained traction ever since they turned the reins over full time to Jameel Sewell. UVa.’s best chance is in a shootout, but UNC’s defense should be ready to go. Edge: UNC

Special Teams

Jimmy Howell outshines Grant Schallock as punter, but Schallock doesn’t have to worry about Bruce Carter, who still hasn’t grabbed a punt yet this year — but he’s been close. Edge: UNC

dth file/Andrew DYe

Kennedy Tinsley (36), Kendric Burney (16) and North Carolina look to bounce back from last week’s 24-7 loss to Georgia Tech against Virginia.

Even with a 0-3 record, even with a loss to a Football Championship Subdivision opponent and even after only averaging 1.8 yards a carry in its last game, UNC coach Butch Davis still thinks Virginia is a very dangerous team. “This is one of the things we try to do with our players is, ‘Look at them,’” he said. “‘Don’t read the newspapers. Don’t listen to talk radio. Look at them.’ And the film says this a talented, good football team.” And though many will disagree with such an assessment — especially after the Cavaliers’ subpar start — Davis sees a physically gifted football team. He sees UVa. quarterback Jameel Sewell. “He’s very, very athletic,” Davis said. “He moves in the pocket well. He throws on the run well. He’s dangerous because he can extend plays.” Last year against the Tar Heels, then-junior Sewell didn’t see any action. And at the beginning of this season, that trend didn’t seem likely to change. But with the struggles of Marc Verica and converted quarterback Vic Hall, Sewell has started the past two weeks. He managed just 120 passing yards and was sacked eight times in his first game against Texas Christian University — although he did throw for two touchdowns. Still, such struggles wouldn’t last long. The following week, Sewell’s statistics exploded. Again, he tossed two touchdowns, but this time, he combined the effort with 312 aerial yards. “You watch the plays he made against Southern Miss, where everybody was covered, and he would tuck the ball away. He would always keep drives alive,” Davis said. Virginia’s new offensive coordinator, Gregg Brandon, has transitioned the team’s playbook to a more spread-option offense, which looks like a much better fit for Sewell. It’s allowed Sewell to line up in the shotgun and gives him the option to run.

DTH ONLINE: E.J. Wilson talks about Saturday’s game at daily tarheel.com/multimedia.

“One of the things we try to do with our players is ‘Look at them. Don’t read the newspapers.’” Butch Davis, head coach And as North Carolina’s defense struggled with Georgia Tech’s Josh Nesbitt, a run-oriented quarterback who racked up 97 rushing yards last week, it would seem that UNC might be worried. “Not so much because there are a lot of teams around the nation that run a pretty similar offense,” cornerback Kendric Burney said. “We got to play with a little bit of a chip on our shoulders. We’re not real happy about this loss. As a veteran defense, as a lot of veterans on this team, we know exactly what we need to do to bounce back.” The same can be said for UNC as a whole, as the Tar Heels will be looking to avenge three straight losses to the Cavaliers. And according to North Carolina quarterback T.J. Yates, that fact is not lost on the team. But either is the loss to Georgia Tech — which UNC hopes to remedy this weekend. “A lot of guys on the team kind of have a bad taste in their mouth,” Yates said. “The expectations for ourselves and this team going into the season, we didn’t see ourselves losing so early. A lot of guys on the team are pretty angry and pretty pissed off.” Contact the Sports Editor at sports@unc.edu.

UNC to victory By Scott Powers Senior Writer

Junior outside hitter Suzanne Haydel is once again a primary weapon for the North Carolina volleyball team after struggling to earn playing time early in the season. North Carolina trailed Maryland 20-23 in the second set Thursday after dropping the first set. But three kills and an assisted block by Haydel led UNC to a 27-25 comeback. “We found a go-to player tonight in Sue Haydel,” coach Joe Sagula said. Haydel’s production saved the Tar Heels from what could have been a devastating loss to the Terrapins as UNC went on to win the match in four games: 21-25, 2725, 25-17 and 25-17. Haydel recorded 21 kills and showed remarkable efficiency, making only two errors in 50 attacks. “Sue’s maturing and seeing the game better,” Sagula said. The Tar Heels haven’t lost at home to the Terrapins, who were 2-18 in conference play last year, since 1997. After starting in 30 of the team’s 33 matches last season, Haydel recorded only 57 kills in the first nine matches this fall. Newcomers Branagan Fuller and Emily McGee began to earn more playing time during those early games. Haydel acknowledged that it was frustrating to watch the action from the sidelines. “I’m one of the upperclassmen. I really want to lead my team to a victory,” she said. But Haydel has come on since UNC’s home tournament, recording 53 kills in the four matches since.

Volleyball Maryland UNC 

DTH ONLINE: UNC’s early season lineup changes paid off Thursday night. The Tar Heels struggled to put the ball away early in the match Thursday. Sagula said the Terrapins were playing deep defensively and not allowing many kills. “They were digging balls left and right,” Haydel said. UNC adjusted their offensive game plan in the second set, tipping more often instead of swinging away. The Tar Heels found holes in Maryland’s defense shallow in the court. UNC took the momentum from their second-game comeback into the third game. “Sitting in the locker room, we all just looked at each other knowing we were going to get this done on our home court,” Haydel said. The Terrapins came out after the break playing more shallow on defense, and the Tar Heel outside hitters made them pay. UNC won the third and fourth sets by identical scores to improve to 2-1 in conference play. “Once we had them moving up, we were just unstoppable,” Haydel said.

Here’s to unity through good eats

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Keep Wendy’s away from UNC, embrace local foods

O

ne day last week, I received a message from one of my friends telling me that she and two of our other friends had picked up Mellow Mushroom in Durham for dinner. I was SO jealous — that pizza is killer. There are good pizza places in New Orleans too, but nowhere that I’d drive 20 minutes each way for without a second thought. Then, a few nights ago, another friend texted me that she had just gotten home from The Loop. And their Oreo milk shake had been excellent, per usual. My response : “GO PLAY IN TRAFFIC.” Having not had one of those excellent Oreo shakes since last summer, she knew that I would just about kill for one right now. My friends had sent me joyous messages about the great food they knew how much we had enjoyed from certain Chapel Hill restaurants. And they knew that thinking of those places would remind me of the good times we’d had together while frequenting them. This year’s book selection for a program in New Orleans fits in exactly with this theme of food and place. Every fall, the Young Leadership Council partners with the Literacy Alliance of Greater New Orleans to sponsor “One Book, One New Orleans,” a community-wide campaign for literacy. This community program aims to bring residents of New Orleans together through the shared experience of reading the same book during an annual reading period. This year’s selection is “Gumbo Tales: Finding My Place at the New Orleans Table,” by Sara Roahen. I hadn’t honestly given the book and its message of using a city’s food culture as a way to feel at home in a new place too much thought after reading a few reviews of it in August. However, as I reminisced over just how often in the last few weeks my friends in Chapel Hill had mentioned eating at our local favorites, I understood how true the message of “Gumbo Tales” really is. We, the students of UNC, think of the food we eat and the restaurants that we frequent as an important part of our experience in Chapel Hill as a whole. Needless to say, New Orleans has amazing food as well. From overstuffed fried green tomato and shrimp rémoulade po’ boys to beignets to the fact that it’s acceptable to cover 99 percent of foods consumed in this city in Tabasco, New Orleans cuisine is something to write home about. It’s something that people are very passionate about, from locals to transplants to those who have only visited New Orleans for a weekend but still blabber to their families and friends about how great the city’s Cajun food was. In all of those instances, the force that brings people together and allows them to relate to each other is food. However, it can be just about anything that draws people together, from food to sports to being alumni of the same college. What matters is that this thing is a rallying point around which people with different backgrounds and different interests otherwise can all gather and find some common ground.

Measured response apt Report and response from Chapel Hill Police Department show competence in Brown incident

T

he steps the town of Chapel Hill has taken to investigate Charles Brown’s allegation of racial profiling proves that it understands the severity of such allegations. The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People recognizes this. And it should argue the town’s report on its merits, rather than reflexively dismiss it. The report — written by Police Chief Brian Curran — details the results of the town’s investigation into the detention of Charles Brown, which the NAACP claims was racially motivated. It provides a measured response that contrasts sharply with the hyperbolic, emotional language used by the NAACP in its complaint to the town. T he repor t shows that

Brown looks similar to Cumun Fearrington, the man for whom police mistook Charles Brown on June 1. And audio recordings clock the time of the encounter at 16 minutes. The NAACP alleged it lasted “almost an hour.” Michelle Cotton Laws, president of the Chapel Hill/Carrboro branch of the NAACP, said the town’s report was “tainted with bias from the start.” Internal investigations deserve scrutiny because they are conducted by the organization in question. But they do not deserve to be dismissed out of hand. Assuming racism in Brown’s detainment and bias in the town’s report as foregone conclusions is no way to make progress on this issue. The report also gives two suggestions to provide greater

accountability in the future: All patrol cars should have videos to document incident, and incident reports should be written whenever similar detentions occur. While Laws agreed with the suggestions, she said the larger issue is the fact that the report does not rectify the fact that she feels Brown was racially profiled. “This is by no way a dead issue, in any way, shape or form,” she said. Brown and the NAACP are free to disagree with the report. But if they choose to dissent, they need to counter the town’s well-reasoned report with sound evidence — not hyperbole. Race is a sensitive and polarizing issue. The town appears to be trying to address it calmly and rationally. The NAACP should follow suit.

Defend cyber space University should work quickly to update ITS policies on cyber security in light of recent attacks at UNC

T

he University needs new cyber-security policies. Information Technology Services has proposed policy solutions, but they haven’t been enacted yet. They should be put into place as soon as possible. The announcement that one of the University’s databases at the School of Medicine was breached — exposing personal information on 236,000 women — makes the situation urgent. William Cameron, the assistant vice chancellor for information security, said the ITS proposals would standardize cyber security across campus and could prevent future breaches like the one at the medical school.

The proposals are set to be presented to the Faculty Council on Oct. 9. Some might not want to implement these policies because of the money required and the complexity of technological issues. But it is imperative that the council approve these polices and advance them to the next stage of review. Cameron said that policies take time to implement and that many of the ITS proposals require resources. That means faculty might have to set aside money in their research funds for security. The sooner they know how much money they have to set aside, the better. Plus, without good cyber

security, the University risks losing the trust of anyone whose information is stored in its systems. The breach at the medical school even caused concern that the University could lose research funding. Let’s not go down that road. But Cameron said the 26.6 million cyber attacks the University defended itself against in 2008 aren’t going away. Hackers won’t stop hacking, and the security problem won’t be fixed without concerted efforts and resources. ITS has proposed thorough security policies. The Faculty Council should approve them, and the University should implement them soon.

Start up the bus

T

Try Transit Week was great way to promote and encourage public transportation in the Triangle

ry Transit Week was a great way to get the community involved in practicing sustainable transportation habits. Although the official week of events wraps up today, local residents should still make buses a favored mode of transportation. Triangle Transit and other local transportation systems created the event to encourage others to protect the environment reduce dependency on foreign oil and improve the overall quality of life. The weeklong program comes to a close today, but ideas that it promotes will hopefully resonate within the

community as a whole. The program featured events such as Rider Appreciation Day, where Triangle Transit rolled out the ice cream truck, along with music and prizes, at the Regional Transit Center on Slater Road in Durham. Other perks and events included free rides on Triangle Transit for those riding bicycles to the stop and a scavenger hunt for those following Triangle Transit on Facebook and Twitter. To d a y i s O p e r a t i o n s Appreciation Day, featuring comment cards on Triangle Transit buses. The Triangle area is already seeing a greater reliance

on public transportation as Triangle Transit ridership reached an all-time high at the end of June. And ridership on Chapel Hill Transit buses, which are free, is up 15 percent since last year. With events like this one, the transit system continues to encourage others to partake in a more sustainable way of life. Great public transportation has been the hallmark of the triangle area that has contributed to a better a way of life. The level of ridership and programs like these also demonstrate the rise of the transit system in general. That’s something the area can be proud of.

TO THE EDITOR: Concerning the possibility of opening a fast food restaurant on campus, I oppose. If this University is serious about promoting healthy living habits, how then can we stand by and allow administrators and food industry consultants to control our food choices? I know she has cute, freckled cheeks and a darling set of pigtails, but Wendy can stay away from the University. And Dave Thomas too, may he rest in peace. I urge all students who care for themselves, this University, health insurance costs, and a myriad of other things interrelated to food choices on campus to stand up and be counted. The Fair, Local, and Organic Foods student group and others are no doubt in opposition, but others must make their voices heard. Call Chancellor Holden Thorp, e-mail the fire department, whatever. Go by Surplus Sids and pick up some pants. This is unacceptable. As an alternative, the administrators in charge of this project should seek broad, deep input from all parties involved. Foot traffic and cheap calories be damned. We need real food. Now. Tim Wander UNC ’09

Column disregarded all principles, law in argument TO THE EDITOR: In his column titled “Make ‘access’ meaningful” (Sept. 30), editorial board member Christian Yoder argues why illegal immigrants should be able to pay in-state tuition. I am a full-time international student here at UNC. Like all other international students, I pay the significantly larger outof-state tuition. I am appalled at how Yoder wants to change the rules only for one group of people, displaying a complete lack of principles. It is ridiculous that illegal immigrants should get special treatment. Illegal immigrants are not legal residents of this state. They have to face the consequences of that. If they don’t like it, they can go to school somewhere else. In their defense, Yoder puts forth the argument that since they actually pay sales and property taxes, they should fall in the category of citizens that reside legally in the state. May I remind Yoder that the international students who have come to this state also pay sales and property taxes on our cars and residences. So if you follow his argument, then we should also get in-state tuition since we contribute to the state’s revenue. These pro-immigration advocates need to stop throwing away all principles of law and common sense, but rather focus their efforts on national immigration reform. The only way to solve the immigration issue is a national reform. The solution in a democracy is rarely to give special treatment. Marius Lorentzen Senior Economics , Political Science
