Leaders are not ‘anti-bonfire’ CAA, Fever heads wait to take stance By Emily banks Staff writer

Student Body President Jasmin Jones is starting to feel the heat from other student leaders about her plan to extinguish bonfire culture on Franklin Street. Leaders of the Carolina Athletic Association and its principal stu-

dent fan group, Carolina Fever, which would likely be Jones’ vehicles for implementing any kind of change in policy, said they are not sure eliminating the bonfire celebrations is the best plan. “We are very pro-safety, all about safety,” said CAA President John Russell. “But as of now, I don’t nec-

essarily think we’re anti-bonfires.” Since this summer, Jones has said she wants to implement safer celebrations after major basketball victories, which would include hiring disc jockeys and implementing a more party-like atmosphere. She said she is willing to press on with her plan, even if the CAA and Carolina Fever are not willing to sign on. “I want them to be part of it,

but it’s OK if they have dissenting opinions on fires,” she said. “We can take the strong arm. It’s going to take a backlash, but we’re ready for it.” Russell said he supports Jones but wants to hear students’ opinions before taking a more decisive stance. “I was elected by the students, and I need to represent them,” he said. Unlike his predecessor, who

pushed strongly for eliminating dangerous celebrations, Russell said the difficulty in preventing students from lighting bonfires makes him reluctant to take action. “It’s been a tradition in Chapel Hill for a very long time,” he said. “We can’t just come in, like, ‘We have to stop doing this,’” he said.

Politicians get view from the top BY Laura marcinek Investigative Team Editor

Elected officials received $15,831 worth of football tickets from 2003 to 2008 free of charge, according to data compiled by the University. The tickets were paid for by UNC Foundation Investment Fund Inc., an organization dedicated to supporting teaching, research and service at the University by receiving gifts and distributing funds. UNC officials said the benefit of hosting elected officials outweighs the small cost. Matt Kupec, vice chancellor of University advancement, said the foundation has brought in $14.5 million in grants this fiscal year to support students, faculty and other initiatives on campus. “A very tiny amount, pennies almost, are used for these tickets,” Kupec said. “It’s a great, great benefit any time you can bring in officials of that status to campus, allowing them to meet administrators, faculty, students. We believe they’ll be impressed by what goes on here. It’s good for the University. “It’s a great investment and, we think, one very See Tickets, Page 4 dth/Duncan hoge

A fund provides elected officials with tickets to UNC sporting events free of charge. “It’s good for the University,” said Matt Kupec, vice chancellor for University advancement.

“The great thing about football is it gives you four hours to interact with someone. You can’t ask for a better opportunity to explain to people what we’re trying to do. If I go to Raleigh, I might get 15 minutes.” Holden Thorp, Chancellor

By Jeanna Smialek “Pig in a blanket” no longer only refers to the croissant-wrapped mini hot dogs found at cocktail parties. It’s now the phrase of choice to describe students quarantined with H1N1 virus at Johns Hopkins University. This is just one example of college students nationwide using pig humor to lighten the attitude about the H1N1 virus, commonly known as swine flu, while administrators continue to take serious precautions. Johns Hopkins has taken an unusual approach to swine flu education by compiling a glossary of H1N1 terms, such as “piglet” for infected freshmen and “pig pen” for an infected student’s room. “We put out a tongue-in-cheek glossary that got information out in a humorous way,” said Dennis O’Shea, executive director of communications and public affairs at Johns Hopkins. Even at schools where the administration doesn’t approach H1N1 with humor, students have found ways.

Although it is meant to be a place for recovery, the dorm also has inspired many jokes. Michael Huey, executive director of student health services at Emory, said the students have even made shirts that read, “I survived swine flu hall.” “Students are responding to it extremely positively and with a lot of good humor,” he said.

ITS victim of budget cuts Two labs close to help new budget

Number of lab users peaks around lunch

BY Mary Withers

The average total log-ins by hour during fall semester 2009 so far has peaked at 10,234 log-ins at noon. Despite closures, ITS labs remain popular at UNC.

Staff Writer

Students in need of campus printing and computing services have two fewer labs at their disposal this year. But unlike other universities that have closed their computer labs because they were underused, UNC made the decision to help campus cope with about $37.5 million in budget cuts. “This was to the dismay of many of the students,” said Charlie Green, assistant vice chancellor for teaching and learning. “They came to rely on those labs.” Although Information Five UNC alumni awarded for Technology Services shut down commitment to education labs in the School of Law and the The UNC School of Education honored five graduates at its Alumni Awards Ceremony for their commitment and ongoing contributions to the field of education.

NAACP will ask to present to town about racism case Though a town investigation into a racism complaint showed no profiling by Chapel Hill police, the local branch of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People plans to continue pushing for police accountability. NAACP lawyer Alan McSurely said that because the police chief had time to present the results of the investigation to town manager Roger Stancil, the NAACP should also have a chance to present. At their regular meeting Saturday, the NAACP discussed announcing tentatively on Tuesday a request to present their side of the case and ask for a civilian review board that would monitor police investigations of racism complaints. The NAACP filed a complaint against the Town of Chapel Hill, stating that barber shop owner Charles Brown was unlawfully detained on his way home from work as police mistook him for another man.

Diversions Editor Jordan Lawrence and Arts Editor Katy Doll braved the masses on I-40 on Saturday heading to Raleigh for the show.

Black Student Movement Week culminated Saturday evening, but group president B’anca Glenn said she hopes last week’s events were just the beginning of a strong presence on campus this year. Glenn said participation on BSM Pride Day and in the election for Mr. and Miss BSM were signs of progress. More than 100 students, several clad in supportive T-shirts, gathered in the Pit on Friday for free cake and entertainment in honor of BSM Pride Day. “We want to put BSM out there and let people know we’re up and moving this year,” Glenn said. Mr. and Miss BSM usually enter the Homecoming King and Queen competition, often winning. Glenn said that tradition isn’t changing. But last year’s Homecoming election was a departure from that trend. The two white students, Jeremy Crouthamel and Meredith Martindale, who won the election were not affiliated with BSM. The organization struggled to get members out to the polls, which some members saw as a sign of dwindling participation from members. Stronger student involvement in BSM, which could help win a Homecoming election, is what Glenn said she’s aiming for this year. On Friday, 181 members cast their votes online for Mr. and Miss BSM. The number, almost half of BSM members, was an increase from last year. “It’s exciting to see who will win Miss and Mr. BSM because that’s when we’ll get the ball rolling,” said freshman Tia Davis, who joined the BSM after her second week at UNC. Mr. and Miss BSM are chosen annually based on service project platforms they work on throughout the year. Krista Stepney, who was crowned Miss BSM on Saturday, plans to provide donations and education to lower-income schools. Lorenzo Hopper, who wants to explore identity and diversity issues on campus, was crowned Mr. BSM. “I think they’re both strong candidates, and their projects are very well-developed,” Glenn said. Davis said she plans to get further involved with the BSM. “It has so much to offer everyone,” she said. “I find a lot of comfort in that.” She noted that members come from diverse backgrounds, but BSM unifies them. “We culturally share the same value system, which is to preserve black culture in this country and share it with the community.” Contact the University Editor at udesk@unc.edu.

Bottle ban won’t help Orange UNC doctor travels to County already recycles most in N.C. “Recycling is a long-

Washington as N.C. rep

Staff Writer

Orange County, which already recycles more plastic bottles than any other county in the state, is being encouraged by state officials to conserve even more. The N.C. General Assembly placed a ban on disposing plastic bottles, oil filters and wooden pallets in landfills across the state. The ban took effect Thursday. But while Orange County is running out of space in its landfill, town leaders don’t anticipate the ban to help much. Town officials estimate the Orange County landfill will last only three more years before filling up. But plastic bottles don’t make up much of the landfill’s intake, so a ban will not do much to ease the burden, said Blair Pollock of the Orange County Solid Waste Advisory Board. In Orange County, plastic bottles represent 2.4 percent of household waste, Pollock said. And out of 25,000 tons of residential waste per year in Orange County, only 600 tons are plastic bottles, he

said. “In other terms, it only represents a week of waste,” he said. Still, 19 million plastic bottles are thrown out every year in the county, or about 150 plastic bottles per household, Pollock said. Orange County recycles 29.42 pounds of plastic bottles per resident per year, almost double the rate of the second-highest county, Pamlico. The average county in the state recycles 3.81 pounds per resident per year. T h e N.C . D e p a r t m e n t o f Environment and Natural Resources categorizes Orange County as a top recycler in the state. “The ban will have more effect on people in other jurisdictions,” said Jan Sassaman, chairman of the Orange County Solid Waste Advisory Board. Pollock said the county’s recycling program is 22 years old, one of the oldest in the state. “Recycling is a long-standing tradition here,” he said. “It is a combination of the ease of recycling, the availability and the visibility of

standing tradition here. … This is an expectation.”

recycling opportunities. “There is definitely a culture of recycling in Orange County and this is an expectation of people,” he said. But Pollock said the ease of recycling decreases once people are outside of their homes, and the county still can make progress. “The infrastructure outside the household is lacking,” he said. “Fifty percent of bottles are consumed away from home.” According to the N.C. Department of Environment and Natural Resources, the state recovers less than 20 percent of the plastic bottles generated in the state. The purpose of the ban is to boost the state’s recycling business, the department said. Contact the City Editor at citydesk@unc.edu.

A UNC doctor will represent North Carolina in a meeting today with President Barack Obama. Stephen Gamboa, clinical instructor in the department of family medicine, is participating in a health care reform discussion at the White House. Obama invited one doctor from each state. “President Obama organized this event and wanted a physician from each state to show that doctors are indeed supporting health care reform,” Gamboa said. The doctors, mostly selected from an organization called Doctors for America, will be expressing their concerns about the health care system and support for the president’s reform. “Our efforts are based on making insurance accessible for all, prevention and wellness, advocating for a public option and strengthening primary care,” he said. Gamboa said they will be discussing the importance of the public insurance option with Obama even though the U.S. Senate vetoed last week two proposals that

He said meeting will also focus on coming up with ways to make insurance affordable for all. About 14,000 people lose insurance coverage every day, and 47 million were reported to be uninsured in 2008. With unprecedented unemployment rates, the numbers are probably even worse now, Gamboa said. “We need a system that does not bankrupt families through medical bills,” he said. “I think (Obama) is a very intelligent person and has great ideas for health reform.” Contact the State & National Editor at stntdesk@unc.edu.

SWINE FLU

Pennsylvania State University student Sarah Burton with the virus, they warned her against the dangers of H1N1 parties, a popular trend nationwide. The parties are meant to encourage the spread of the flu so that people have less of a chance of getting it later when it might be more dangerous. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention warn against such parties because the virus can be fatal. Burton found the concept funny, so she advertised a swine flu theme party on Facebook. The idea received a huge amount of feedback on the Web site and in texts and phone calls, she said. “It was completely on Facebook, but everybody knew on campus,” she said. She said “wine flu parties,” a play on the term swine flu, are becoming popular at PSU, as well. “Everything about swine flu is very funny,” Burton said. “It is the normal flu, but you have to stay isolated and wear a painter’s mask.”

The final sign off for the project will come from University administrators and the Board of Trustees once the entire $70 million to $85 million cost can be accounted for.

Elevators take guests to the box, which is finished with dark wood panels and gold and blue carpeting. The box has its own seating, and guests are served buffet-style. Some guests might prefer to sit in the stadium, but they are given bracelets that give them access to the box before and after the game and during halftime. Since a state ethics law took effect in Januar y 2007, the University has not given free tick-

ets to state-level elected officials, said Mike McFarland, director of University communications. The ethics law has a gift provision that places restrictions on the ability of state legislators, public servants and judicial officials to receive gifts. Because of this provision, state elected officials have to purchase tickets to football games, but they can call the chancellor’s office to see if tickets are available, said Dwayne Pinkney, assistant vice

program at its current competitive levels,” said Dick Baddour, athletic director, in a statement. Plans to renovate the more than 80-year-old stadium have been in development for a decade. The goal of the overhaul is to modernize the facilities, provide better support for student-athletes and provide a better experience for fans, Baddour said in a statement. “We have to accomplish these goals in a way that the project not only pays for itself, but provides a long-term source of additional revenue for Carolina athletics,” Baddour said. The changes are part of a master plan to keep Kenan up-to-date that began with a west end renovation that ended in August. New seating sections, called the Blue Zone, will feature 20 individ-

ual suites and seating with access to private lounges. Underneath the new seating, the Student-Athlete Center for Excellence will house a variety of facilities, including the Carolina Athletics Business Office and visitor’s locker rooms. The new Academic Support Center will occupy more than 29,000 square feet making it one of the building’s largest occupants. It will be three times the size of the current academic center, which opened 23 years ago. The Student-Athlete Center for Excellence will also include a new locker room for the lacrosse team and a Strength and Conditioning Center for Olympic sports.

Obtaining a free ticket is done much the same way. The state ethics law does not apply to town officials, who are still allowed to receive free tickets to athletic events. Federal officials, such as U.S. congressmen, can still receive free tickets to University athletic events because they are governed by a different set of ethics laws, said Karen Regan, director of federal affairs at UNC. “Part of the mission of the Office of Federal Affairs is to try to get

officials to come and spend time on our campus,” Regan said. “At the federal level, the laws are very different.” UNC-system President Erskine Bowles established a ticketing policy in 2008 that allows the University to extend tickets to members of Congress and their staff free of charge. The invitation must be extended by the president of the University, the vice president of federal relations, the chancellor or the campus federal relations officer. “We think it’s a great, great way to showcase our University,” Kupec said.

BONFIRES

“No one’s going to be lighting fires for our football team,” he said. Rowe said students have been lighting fires after important victories including national championships and Duke games even though it is illegal. “It may be very expensive and just not pragmatic for us,” he said. “We don’t want to create more chaos and friction between students and Chapel Hill.” Rowe said he also plans to consult his constituency before taking a more pronounced stance. “Jones’s administration will only be here for the remainder of the year,” he said. “This affects not just us but future Carolina students.” Rowe said the decision to light bonfires ultimately belongs to the students, and that they would have to sign on to any change for it to be effective. “Promoting safety is wonderful,” he said. “But if willing students want to take a risk, that is their risk to take.”

Desmond Rowe agreed that stopping the bonfires would involve extensive action. “You can’t just abolish something when it’s a group of willing adults who know the risk,” he said. “It’s like getting in a car every day.” After touring the N.C. Jaycee Burn Center with Jones on Sept. 25, Rowe said he understands the danger of burns but does not think Contact the University Editor the Franklin Street bonfires are at udesk@unc.edu. excessively hazardous. “If 60,000 people were there and 12 got burned, that’s not even 1 percent,” he said. “I’d understand the impact if someone died.” Eight students were admitted to the burn center the night the men’s basketball team won the national championship last year. “No night of fun is worth a life,” Jones said in response to Rowe’s statement. Russell said it will be a long time before Jones gets a chance to test her plan, which will allow for more campus discussion.

No great ‘honor’ in Carolina program

“splendidmike,” on UNC’s research prowess

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

T

oday I celebrated the one-month anniversary of dropping my e-mail address from the honorsinfo3 listserv. And it feels great. For the past two years, the honors program has consistently disappointed me, underwhelmed me and made me question whether our University doesn’t deserve something at least a little better. But it wasn’t always like this. When I got my acceptance letter in 12th grade, I was overjoyed. Not only had I been admitted to the University itself, but with my admission came an invitation to the most elite academic clique, the honors program. I wasn’t quite sure what this entailed, exactly. Being an honor student in high school had given me GPA inflation, sporadic doughnut days and a bumper sticker for my mom’s car. At UNC, the perks could only be better, right? At first they were. I got preferential housing to live with my new roommate, who was also in the program, and a breakfast at the Carolina Inn. I took a cool honors creative writing class and thought to myself, this is great. But then again I was a freshman. I still got lost on North Campus sometimes. As time wore on, I found it increasingly hard to find honors classes that fulfilled my academic requirements. I had finished all of my general education stuff, and there were very few classes relating to my major. There were no more free breakfasts, and every day the listserv spammed me with service projects and guest speakers that seemed to have limited appeal. So, unable to take the required two classes a year, I dropped out. Eight months later, after multiple unsubscribe attempts, the listserv finally let me go. Free at last! The whole ordeal is pretty sad. Many of my friends who came to Carolina as excited honors neophytes also dropped the program their sophomore year. Call us cynics, but with double majors and extracurriculars, we don’t have time to take the latest interdisciplinary philosophy course. And if we wanted to, we could just sign up on our own. UNC’s honors classes are preferential, not exclusive. If nonhonors students can also enroll, what’s the point? Those still on the listerv say that it’s being able to say you graduated with honors. But wait — can’t you do that anyway, by writing a thesis? I am no longer worried that not being in the honors club will put a black mark on my resumé. But I still regret that the program wasn’t more appealing. At other colleges, honors programs have exclusive housing, priority registration, specialized advising. (The advising I had pre- and posthonors dropout was identical.) If UNC is going to draw in the undergraduate talent that it wants, our honors program should step up its game. To move forward, the honors program should look into a more wide range of course offerings that fit into students’ academic goals. It should explore exclusive offerings that set it apart from the rest of the University. At the very least, something could be done about its listserv. UNC’s honors program has the potential to be a great asset for our University, but if it can’t retain its students, its use is severely limited.

Food for thought Carolina Dining Services does well in analyzing student needs; fee increases necessary

T

he planned expansion of the Top of Lenoir and installation of a 24-hour restaurant in the Student Union are welcome improvements to on-campus dining, despite the required $18.25 student fee increase. Fee increases are rarely welcomed by students, but as the University’s enrollment continues to grow, on-campus dining needs to grow with it. Carolina Dining Services, with the help of the consulting firm MarketMatch, has done a good job listening to the requests of students concerning dining options. By conduc ting sur ve ys and holding focus groups, MarketMatch determined what criteria UNC students have for a new restaurant on campus, and the fast food chain Wendy’s may be the best fit.

Having a Wendy’s on campus would offer 24-hour food service and meet various needs of college students. The restaurant provides quick service, offers reasonably priced meals and can serve breakfast, lunch and dinner. A restaurant in the basement of the Student Union will also divert students from Lenoir and Alpine Bagel, which experience overcrowding. The renovation of Lenoir will also deal with overcrowding issues. Expansion of the second floor will add about 200 seats, and renovations in the building’s basement will also increase seating. U n f o r t u n a t e l y, t h e s e improvements will cost students a fee increase. Approved last Friday by the student fee advisory subcommittee, the onetime increase to the din-

ing debt fee would cover the Lenoir expansion as well as necessary renovations to what is now the copy center in the Student Union. The fee still has to be approved at administrative levels. These projects will make real improvements to space issues, but future improvements might also need to be made. With administrators pushing for more activity on South Campus, Carolina Dining Services should also consider expanding dining options around Rams Head Plaza, which gets foot traffic from students going to class from South Campus. Carolina Dining Services has been diligent to ensure that money is well spent, and the upgrades accompanying the proposed fee are a good start to improving on-campus dining.

New liberal magazine adds to the marketplace of ideas on campus, will bring balance

udos go to the Young Democrats of UNC and the Duke Democrats for putting out the first issue of their new publication, Campus BluePrint. The liberal-leaning magazine will fill an important hole in campus media — that of the leftist population at UNC. It’s sort of an ironic hole, considering how overwhelmingly liberal the student body is considered. The magazine will act as an important foil to the Carolina Review, the monthly voice of conservative thought on campus. Every observation from the mainstream to the fringes is essential to the marketplace of

ideas. When ideas and vie ws flow freely, it is possible for people to argue and debate through them until the truth is found. Campus BluePrint is just another piece to that puzzle. David Gilmore, the publication’s UNC editor-in-chief, also did well by promising a conservative voice in each monthly issue. Compromise and consensus are important to a good discussion. The Carolina Review staff recognizes that as well. Bryan Weynand, editor-inchief of the conservative magazine, made the right choice by welcoming Campus BluePrint to the table.

Although the two publications will be at odds, Weynand told The Daily Tar Heel he realizes that this is a necessary step toward better campus discussion. This is the right reaction; Now these two publications can use the idea of competition — Carolina Review surely will love that reference — to produce a better product. Campus BluePrint is a new, significant part of campus discussions for both UNC and Duke, and that’s something to celebrate. This is the start of a better, stronger campus discussion, one where a new viewpoint is put forward so students can better draw their own conclusions.

No plastic accepted

Follow the law: Don’t throw away plastic bottles

hink twice before buying bottled water next time. As of Thursday, it is illegal in North Carolina to throw plastic bottles away. The new law, which was passed in 2005, is the latest in a solid environmental effort by the N.C. General Assembly. The law is going to be difficult to enforce, so North Carolina residents — and especially the University community — should take it upon themselves to comply. From 2007 to 2008, the University — not including UNC Hospitals — generated 5,384 tons of waste for the landfill. Land’s a precious resource, and it’s irresponsible to keep using it for trash. The N.C. Department of

Environment and Natural Resources estimates that more than 2.4 billion plastic bottles would not be put in landfills annually if all bottles were recycled. This law aims to do just that. Each year, the University recycles about 245 tons of aluminum cans and plastic bottles. But we’ve all seen the trash bins overflowing with plastics after football games. We can improve. This new law is a call to action for the University community. It should prompt us to reexamine not just where we throw our waste but also why we’re producing that waste. The easiest way to curb the amount of plastic in the landfill is to stop using single-use

plastic containers. Now that it’s illegal to throw those containers away, students should think twice about buying bottled water and soda. Take a cue from the legislature and be responsible.

Letter offered no insight to counter in-state status

Review was unfair to new album from Avett Brothers

TO THE EDITOR: In his Oct. 1 letter to the editor (“Granting in-state tuition status is unfair”), Alex Rhodes does an excellent job of bashing Christian Yoder’s stance (“Make ‘access’ meaningful,” Sept. 30) that illegal immigrants should be granted in-state tuition to North Carolina’s community colleges, but offers no insight as to why this shouldn’t be. I think Mr. Rhodes needs a reality check: Charging illegal immigrants out-of-state tuition to attend community college won’t make life any easier for them or for native North Carolina residents. As Mr. Yoder stated, community colleges are designed to build up our state’s workforce. Providing immigrants with training allows them to get better jobs. The last time I checked, being paid more means paying more taxes. It is also worth remembering that it takes comparatively little effort to be born on American soil than to uproot one’s life and family from another country to come to the United States. Merely having the legal designation of “U.S. citizen” should not necessarily entitle one to privileges to which others are denied. Apparently Mr. Rhodes is under the impression that “stereotypically liberal” viewpoints are always incorrect. I don’t think he needs a better argument than the one right in front of his face.

TO THE EDITOR: Jordan Lawrence’s article “New Avetts a ‘major’ bore” (Oct. 1) is not at all a correct representation of the new Avetts album. I can agree that the songs on this album are much slower than many of the previous albums; however, the comment, “The Avetts babble meaninglessly about dreams just out of reach,” is completely repulsive. With the release of “I and Love and You”, the Avett Brothers, which include Scott and Seth Avett along with Bob Crawford and Joe Kwon, who received absolutely no credit in the article, have been releasing a weekly video series with recordings from their Charlotte performance on Aug. 8. In one such recording, Chapter 9 “Ill with Want,” Jim Avett, Scott and Seth’s father, comments, “brutally, brutally honest in their lyrics. If you knew, like their mother and I know, what they were going through when they wrote some of these songs, it brings tears to their mama’s eyes.” In my experience, I have never come across another band with members who are so down to earth and humble. Anyone who listens to their lyrics can clearly tell that’s where the most effort goes. It is true that the Rick Rubin album is different from their previous recordings, but one needs only to watch them perform these songs live to see that they have lost none of the vivacity and honesty in spreading their music to the world.

Elly Schofield Junior English

Letter misunderstood the idea of rights, residents TO THE EDITOR: Alex Rhodes’ letter to the editor (“Granting in-state tuition status is highly unfair,” Oct. 1) made me cringe. His arguments seem so illthought-out that I didn’t know if I was reading a letter or a compilation of knee-jerk conservative hodgepodge. Rhodes says illegal immigrants should not get in-state tuition because, like out-of-state students, they are not registered residents of the state. This is true, but irrelevant. However, in Caballero v. Martinez, the New Jersey Supreme Court decided that undocumented immigrants can be residents of the state: A clear legal precedent even though it is not binding to North Carolina. There is a difference between undocumented immigrants and out-of-state students: The former are non-registered residents, the latter are registered non-residents. They are not at all the same, as Rhodes suggests. He continues to say that education is not a human right, but a luxury. This is not true. According to the U.N. Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Article 26, “Everyone has the right to education,” and “higher education shall be equally accessible to all on the basis of merit.” Erik Thiede Freshman Chemistry

Football team should focus on winning, not marketing TO THE EDITOR: It appears that the time has come for UNC to refocus the direction of its football program. Enough of the glitter such as smoke from the player tunnel, loud music to encourage crowd participation, large and colorful video screens and talk about stadium expansion and improvements. We need to focus on football, not the “production” of and “marketing” of the game and program. UNC has become the poster child for football mediocrity. The recruits will come to a successful program and the crowds will follow. It’s that simple. There is no excuse for a University that produces quality teams in most of our other sports to accept the low performance that we are now experiencing. And yes, we can play better football while maintaining quality “student” athletes and not sacrificing our academic standards. Let’s play fast, tough and creative football on Saturdays and stop trying to market a program and produce a big colorful show. The crowds and enthusiasm will follow … no smoke and mirrors necessary. Or else Carolina football will become only a “place holder” sport to bridge us between basketball seasons. Steven Johnson UNC ‘79

And the point of all this, as Bono told the crowd, was “intimacy on a grand scale.” “What do you think of our space junk?” he asked. “We knew our Spaceship would take us all kinds of places, but we built it to get close to you, the audience.” And on songs such as an acoustic duo version of “Stuck In A Moment You Can’t Get Out Of,” it did just that. As Bono and guitarist The Edge sang the ending harmony to each other, they were framed in spotlight, a passionate moment captured in crystal clarity by 360 degrees of screen. But more often the stage and U2’s high-tech tricks made the Raleigh stop on the U2360° Tour more spectacular than personal.

But we soldiered on, confusedly navigating the parking beehive that organizers made of the fairgrounds, finally finding a parking place and throwing down $20 for the trouble before scrambling over to the stadium. And then, as we rushed in to find our seats, there it was, standing before us. “The Spaceship.” At 170 tons, it’s the largest stage of its kind, but its awesomeness doesn’t stop at measurements. On stage, Bono belted the chorus of new song “Magnificent,” but I barely had time to take in the rock icon before I was distracted by the mechanical monstrosity that surrounded his band. Around the main stage was a runway, the space between filled with a mob of disciples. Linking the runway to the stage were two catwalks that pivoted to different positions. At corners four enormous legs stretched skyward, bejeweled with sparking multicolor lights. At their joining, a spire shot into the air, also crowned in light. And coming down from the canopy of it all was a circular screen which projected the band to every eye in every direction.

“We’ve got to find a running game, and we’ve got to be able to block people at the point of attack,” Davis said. “We can’t have as much penetration at the point of attack and not allow the back to at least get started at the intended hole or the intended point of attack.” Davis added later that there weren’t any “smoke and mirrors” or a “magic pill” that UNC could take to fix the mistakes of its last two games. He said his young team just needs to learn from its mistakes

ently worked — Yates was forced to scramble and threw an incomplete pass. “We’ve seen them when they had two guys down and nine guys standing up, but we hadn’t seen them where they had all 11 guys are just standing up, running around,” Yates said. “Nobody runs that defense. They kind of just freelance. They all have a hole they’re going to hit. When it’s third-and-long, you can do that sort of stuff, and we have to stay out of that situation.” Problem was, UNC didn’t. Later in the first quarter, after the Tar Heels converted their initial first down of the game, Yates and Co. faced a third-and-13. As Yates hiked the ball and dropped

Dawson didn’t even break a sweat, corralling the attacker long enough for the rest of the defense to get set. “She completely broke it down,” goalie Jackie Kintzer said. “She was calm, patient.” Kintzer had plenty of gratitude — and for good reason. Against a top-five opponent in Wake Forest, Kintzer had to face only six shots and made four saves. “They know I’m standing, so they try and counteract that by shooting anywhere they could as hard as they could,” Kintzer said. “I just had to be ready. The defense played well and gave me shots I could handle.” For the season, UNC has allowed only two goals and hasn’t been

The fourth set was also tightly contested. UNC made several attacking errors, and the Eagles again came out on top, this time by a score of 25-23. “We started making outside hitting errors,” said Sagula. “We just started being reckless with our swings, and that’s not good enough.” Despite allowing the Eagles to tie the game, Brooks said she wasn’t worried about losing to Boston College for the first time in UNC history. That confidence was evident in her performance. Trailing 8-6 in the deciding game, Brooks put the Tar Heels ahead 11-8 after a dominant five-point stretch in which she tallied two kills and three blocks. UNC held on and won the fifth game 15-13. “I wasn’t as nervous as I was

and take advantage of the opportunities presented to it during the course of the game. The Tar Heels didn’t take advantage of the chances Virginia gave them, particularly in the turnover battle. Marvin Austin forced a fumble when UVa. was driving in UNC territory late in the first half, but North Carolina was unable to scoop it up. Safety Deunta Williams also had an interception bounce off his hands on a deep ball down the sidelines. “Those could have conceivably negated some points,” Davis said. “It might not have turned into any points, but it certainly would have

given us the opportunity to maybe win the game 10-6, 10-9.” Whatever the cause of North Carolina’s two-game slide has been, it certainly has gotten the attention of the players. A sound defeat to a winless team can do that. “We definitely are playing with a different approach. We’ve got to go back to the basics and try to find something that works,” Williams said. “On both sides we’ve got to give better effort and do something, because what we’re doing right now isn’t working.”

back to pass, Virginia cornerback Vic Hall beelined through the left side of the UNC line and nearly creamed Yates. And though it was nose tackle Nate Collins, and not Hall, who eventually got the sack, one thing was certain: Yates was in for a long day. “Sometimes you can’t help but see when a guy comes free,” Yates said. “You kind of got to look at him. It’s hard sometimes when a guy gets free or a protection breakdown, and you got to throw the ball away or scramble.” Virginia may have only totaled two sacks and six tackles for loss on the day, but with eight quarterback pressures, Yates was forced into errant throws and two interceptions. For the day, he finished 20-36 with just 135 passing yards. Draughn tried to downplay the

impact of UVa.’s shifting defense after the game, saying “that was just to confuse us, whether they were going to run an odd or even front.” Davis, on the other hand, mentioned that the losses of guard Jonathan Cooper and tight end Zack Pianalto hurt far greater than originally thought. Still, the most incredulous about the pressure — and subsequent subpar play — was Yates. As he sat with a towel dwarfed on his head, the UNC quarterback couldn’t fathom why Virginia’s blitzing defense had given them so much trouble. “I’m pretty frustrated,” Yates said. “This is not the way our offense rolls. We are so much better than we are.”

scored on since Sept. 4. “Defend to win — that’s one of our main points,” Dawson said. “We always try to defend. If it’s 1-0, we can win.” On the offensive side of the ball, UNC capitalized on three of its 12 penalty corners. The Tar Heels attempted a flashy double-fake play with their first penalty corner. The play fell apart, and UNC was quick to get back to basics. On UNC’s third penalty corner, senior captain Dani Forword ditched the trickery, took the penalty corner herself and ripped a rocket into the back of the Wake Forest net for UNC’s first goal. With UNC ahead, Wake Forest started to press offensively, and the Demon Deacons repeatedly missed passes and turned the ball over. A hefty chunk of those mistakes were

the result of UNC’s high-pressure defense. “We like to take pride in that. We want to pressure people so they make mistakes,” Shelton said. “Some of those mistakes were unforced.” Jaclyn Radvany and Melanie Brill chipped in goals to increase the margin, and UNC walked away with the regular-season sweep of Wake Forest. It was fitting for UNC to continue its clean-sheet streak against the Deacons, who were the last to score against the Tar Heels more than a month ago. UNC will face Boston College on Saturday, and should it blank the Eagles, it will tie the ACC record for consecutive shutouts with nine.

upset that we lost the fourth game and the third game,” Brooks said. “I was really determined to win that fifth game just to show them that we’re not going to step back and let them win on our floor.” While Sagula said he was pleased that his team was able to emerge with the win, he was frustrated that UNC took so long to respond to the improved play of its opponents. “All of the sudden, they started getting into a rhythm, and we didn’t change enough,” he said. “We tried to mix it up early, and we did some good things to keep them out of rhythm, but then all of the sudden, they get into a rhythm, and we stopped winning the mental part of the game.” Though he wasn’t thrilled with how the game ended, Sagula did believe Friday’s match was indicative of what UNC has done well this season, and what it needs to

National and World News Businesses need reforms to pass

Flaws remain in global economic system; world cooperation needed

NEW YORK (MCT) — Partisan attempts to stall healthcare reform are unacceptable, especially as rising costs prevent small businesses from creating new jobs, President Barack Obama said Saturday. Health care reform proposals can help families and small businesses lower their health care costs, allowing businesses to grow and to hire more, he said. Many small businesses want to hire but can’t afford to insure employees.

SAN FRANCISCO (MCT) — While global economic growth is likely to improve next year, U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner warned Sunday at the Group of Seven meeting in Istanbul that risks remain which will require cooperation of the world’s economic leaders. He added that although planning for an eventual exit from heavy government support of the financial sector is necessary, the world is not yet able to do so.

Senate will debate Census bureau health care soon changing strategy WASHINGTON, D.C. (MCT) — Early this week, the Senate Finance Committee is expected to vote on its version of the bill, the last step before the full chamber debate. It has a 13-10 Democratic majority, and Sen. Olympia Snowe, R-Maine, might vote yes, so approval is expected. The committee is delaying its final vote until the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office estimates its proposals’ cost and effects on consumers.

No. 12 Virginia, which leads the league in shutouts, also ranks first in the conference in goals allowed with 0.5 goals per game. UVa.’s defense held North Carolina to their second-lowest shot production of the season with a total of 11 shots, three of which came after regulation. “I think what they’re trying to do is play out of strong defense,” Bolowich said. “I was a little bit surprised that they were so deep.” Bolowich attributed the Cavaliers’ 4-5-1 defense to a condensed midfield that limited gaps and scoring opportunities for UNC. “We had the majority of the play, and it was really hard to get behind them because there was very little Contact the Sports Editor room to play balls behind them or at sports@unc.edu. to make tackling runs behind the back line,” he said. “That was really our issue the whole game.” do better in the future. Still, North Carolina managed “We showed every type of our quality and our character this match,” he said. “The character of being dominant, the character of backing off, of not being able to finish, of being able to take great swings.”

SEATTLE (MCT) — Next April, a questionnaire from the U.S. Census Bureau will appear in your mailbox. Census Bureau Director Robert Groves held a news briefing in Seattle on Saturday to talk about new strategies and emphasized the ease of the 2010 questionnaire. The form is only 10 questions, making it one of the shortest since the first one in 1790. The bureau wants to surpass the 67 percent return rate from 2000.

Greenspan says job loss not over SAN FRANCISCO (MCT) — Former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan predicted Sunday the nation’s unemployment rate is likely to top 10 percent in coming months. O n A B C ’s “ T h i s We e k ” with George Stephanopoulos, Greenspan said the economy is starting to improve, but companies have not yet created a substantial number of new jobs to make up for the fact that businesses laid off “a substantial number of people” last year.

Geithner said the crisis revealed “critical weaknesses” in the global economy — some countries consumed too heavily, and others relied too much on exports. At the G7 meeting, finance ministers and central-bank governors also vowed to keep support measures in place until recovery was assured and to boost international financial institutions such as the International Monetary Fund.

to create offensive opportunities, outshooting the Cavaliers by an 11-5 margin. On one such occasion, with less than three minutes remaining in the second half, sophomore Kirk Urso took a pass from Graye just outside the 18-yard-box. Right as the ball came to Urso, the midfielder backheeled the ball into space for Graye, who was continuing his run. The defender one-timed a shot just above the crossbar. The Cavaliers offense wasn’t as productive. UNC’s defense held UVa. to one shot during the two overtime periods. “Offense is going to come and go,” Loyd said. “As long as they keep producing opportunities, eventually they’re going to keep falling.” The Tar Heels will look to build upon their best league start since the 2001 national championship season Tuesday at 7 p.m. against Liberty at Fetzer Field.

Yates’ performance lackluster Saturday

Virginia takes first win of the season against North Carolina

By Chris Hempson

Football Virginia UNC

Assistant Sports Editor

T.J. Yates lay on the Kenan Stadium field, near the North Carolina 40-yardline and held his right shoulder. The UNC quarterback had just thrown his first interception of the game, due largely to constant pressure from the Virginia defenders. Shaun Draughn slowly walked by his fallen signal caller, glanced at Yates and tried to pick him up. But Draughn’s efforts were futile —as Yates didn’t budge — much like UNC’s entire offensive performance all afternoon. UNC couldn’t pick up the pressure for Yates. And when it came time to essentially pick up the pieces and rally, the Tar Heels couldn’t get that right either. “Yates was under duress, and (UVa.) did — I don’t know the exact statistics, but I want to say that they either blitzed or either pressured something in the neighborhood of about 10 out of the first 19 plays of the game,” coach Butch Davis said. “They were taking advantage and looking at a young offensive line. They were doing what good coaches will do and trying to exploit somebody.” Coming into the game against Virginia, Davis had warned his players and media members alike about the dangerous aspects of the Cavaliers’ defense. Sure, UVa. had been scorched for point totals of 26, 30 and 37, but Virginia’s unorthodox 3-4 defense could provide problems. On UNC’s first possession of the game, the Tar Heels, for the fourth game in a row, faced a lengthy third-down play. As Yates set the offense, the UVa. defense began moving around lineman and linebackers between standing positions and three-point stances. The confusion appar-

In the aftermath of another stagnant performance — this time a 16-3 loss to ACC bottom-feeder Virginia, North Carolina’s quarterback couldn’t help but admit it. When asked, T.J. Yates acknowledged that he had heard the boos directed at his unit from the home crowd. Yates then paused and lowered his head for a few seconds, signaling that he was done responding to the question. But before another word was spoken, Yates added something under his breath, his head still down. “We deserved it,” Yates said. UNC (3-2, 0-2) couldn’t get anything going against a Virginia (1-3, 1-0) defense which had been allowing 31 points per game before Saturday. The Tar Heels’ offense failed to sustain possession with poor third-down efficiency, and it produced fewer than 200 total yards for the second week in a row. In 12 possessions, North Carolina had six three-and-outs, and 11 of those 12 drives took fewer than three minutes off of the game clock. UNC never found itself in the red zone, and only one drive consumed more than 20 yards. “It’s very frustrating when they’re going three and out and we’re back on the field, or they’re turning the ball over and we’re back on the field,” defensive end Robert Quinn said. “It’s a team game, and I’m not trying to play the blame game, but the offense has got to help us some.” Despite the Tar Heels’ struggles on offense, they remained in the game until the tail end of the fourth quarter, thanks to another solid performance from their defense. UVa. was able to register just nine points on three field goals through three quarters, and the score margin was within seven points until running back Mikell Simpson found the end zone with 5:49 left in the fourth quarter. That touchdown came after an interception off of a Yates pass gave Virginia the ball on the UNC 42-yard line. Quinn anchored UNC’s defensive effort with a careerhigh three sacks, and the Cavaliers gained only 254 total yards. “The defense did a great job. We’ve got to hold up our end of the bargain. We’ve got to put some points on the board,”

Yates said. “They can’t shut everybody out. They did a good job, and we put them in a bad position, which led to that last score.” Yates finished with two interceptions and 135 passing yards, but he was far from the only culprit responsible for UNC’s anemic offensive showing. Running back Shaun Draughn rushed for only 25 yards, and as a whole, UNC gained 39 yards on 23 carries. The significance of his team’s 1.7 yards per carry wasn’t lost on coach Butch Davis.

Brown heads UNC to win By Anna Kim senior writer

With his team struggling to score against Virginia, the ACC’s toughest defense, coach Elmar Bolowich had one piece of advice: Keep playing. “We were like, ‘We can’t break

‘em down. We can’t break ‘em down,’” junior midfielder Cameron Brown said. “Coach Elmar was telling us, ‘It’s our game, we’re going to get it.’” It took almost 109 minutes and two overtimes, but Bolowich kept the faith, and the North

Carolina men’s soccer team kept its promise. With 1:39 remaining in double overtime, Zach Loyd launched a throw-in from the right side, which was flicked to Brown by Jordan Graye. Brown delivered a header from eight yards out for his career-best fourth goal of the season. As No. 5 UNC rushed the crowd with the 1-0 win, the Tar Heels (7-1-1, 3-1-0) reclaimed its spot atop the conference standings. “It’s like these ACC matches when you just need to find a way to win it,” Bolowich said. “It took us longer than we were wishing and hoping for. Nevertheless, we had a great play at the end that made a difference.” Late game heroics have become a staple of Brown’s repertoire. The shot marked his third game-winner for UNC this season and ties him as the team’s leading scorer along with junior midfielder Michael Farfan. And though the match pitted the Tar Heels, the conference’s leader in goals, against the least offensively prolific team in the league — there was no doubt that defense was the focus of the game. “It was one of the those tough games, where two great defensive teams, and they’ve proven so far by their record, are not allowing a whole lot of goals against them,” Bolowich said.

UNC coach Butch Davis’ first home loss of the season came to Virginia, a team that had entered Saturday’s game without a win.

WINSTON-SALEM — Meghan Dawson knew it was coming. Heading into No. 2 North Carolina field hockey’s rivalry game at Wake Forest, the sophomore back knew the WFU strategy was a simple one — pick on her. “Wake was trying to make her handle the ball,” coach Karen

Shelton said. “They picked her out as what we call the bunny, the weak player.” But Dawson was up to the challenge, as the “bunny” led UNC (110, 2-0 ACC) to its eighth straight shutout with a 3-0 win Saturday at

Kentner Stadium. “It was fine,” Dawson said with a shrug. “We practice it in practice, so it was OK.” Every time Dawson received the ball in the backfield, Wake Forest sent defenders running at her, hoping to pressure her into a mistake. And in the second half, Wake Forest (7-3, 1-2) got its chance. An errant pass from Illse Davids found a Wake Forest attacker in a oneversus-one break against Dawson.

Heels thwart Boston College comeback Heather Brooks dominates in fifth set By Aaron Taube Staff Writer

After winning the first two sets in convincing fashion, North Carolina appeared to be en route to an easy three-set win against Boston College on Friday night. While the Tar Heels managed to prevail 3-2, the road to victory was bumpier than anticipated. UNC looked dominant in the early going, winning the first two sets 25-15 and 25-12. Senior middle hitter Ingrid Hanson-Tuntland, led UNC, recording six kills in the second set. “Ingrid was on fire, just a major force out there,” coach Joe Sagula said. The middle hitter was aided by a strong performance from freshman setter Cora Harms, who set a career-high of 64 assists. “The first and second games, she was getting the ball to Ingrid

The third set was much more competitive, with the teams trading points throughout. UNC held a 21-18 lead but dropped seven of the next eight points to lose the set 22-25. “I don’t think we came out in the third game as hard as we could have,” middle hitter Heather Brooks said.
