Police told that Smith had gun Radio tra∞c shows he exited car BY Brian Austin And Kevin Kiley Senior Writers

multimedia FRANKLIN COMES ALIVE Local artists are performing on Franklin Street as part of a sixweek program with the Chapel Hill Downtown Partnership.

university | page 3 NO ‘CACTUS WORLD’ UNC Libraries has decided to cancel subscriptions to about 640 journals and magazines, including “Cactus World.” Not much outcry has arisen among students and faculty.

Archdale police communications show that officers knew Smith was potentially armed and suicidal when they pulled over his Toyota 4Runner early Sunday morning. The stop led to what police say was an altercation with Smith that ended when one of the officers, Jeremy Paul Flinchum, 29, fatally shot him. T h e A r c h d a l e Po l i c e Department released an almost 9-minute recording Thursday of communications between dispatchers and several police officers in response to a 911 call

Smith made. Smith, a junior biology major and president of the UNC chapter of Delta Kappa Epsilon, dialed 911 asking to be escorted or pulled over by police. Smith’s gray 4Runner was reportedly weaving and speeding when two Archdale police officers located him. A dispatcher, sometimes using police codes, advised officers that Smith likely was intoxicated and threatening suicide, details Smith told the 911 operator. The dispatcher alerted officers that Smith might be carrying a 9 mm pistol. The tape also records the transmissions of the two officers who stopped Smith.

Courtland Smith, a UNC junior, was shot and killed by police early Sunday near Greensboro. After a brief talk with the dispatcher, the officers yelled at Smith to return to his car. The shouting can also be heard in Smith’s 911 call. The officers then reported that Smith was getting back in the car. While no shots are heard on the communications tape, the 911 tape indicates that several minutes elapsed before the police next reported that Smith had been shot. “Subject down. Subject down,” one officer reports. “Shots fired.

Shots fired.” The officers at the scene then directed the dispatcher to contact an ambulance. In the final minutes of the recording, emergency responders directed Smith to High Point Regional Hospital, where he was declared dead at 6:03 a.m. While the tape does show that police were aware of what Smith said on the 911 call, it sheds no light on the interaction between the officers and Smith that would have led them to shoot him. Archdale Police Chief Darrell Gibbs said in an interview Tuesday that officers are trained only to draw their weapons if they have reason to fear for their lives. “That’s what it’s there for, to protect your life or to protect a third party,” Gibbs said. “There’s got to be something to make them do it.”

David Baron works at HOPE Garden, a social entrepreneurship project he started while a student at the Kenan-Flagler Business School. He is taking a year off of school to develop the garden into a place that will serve as a transition for the homeless into employment.

While other students attempt to absorb the lectures of their morning classes, would-be junior David Baron is likely to be digging waistdeep in a pile of mulch or hacking away at roots with a pickaxe. Baron chose to take a year off UNC to found an urban garden which socializes and transitions homeless people into the job market. “I’m enjoying seeing the progress. Looking back to see how far it’s come will be very rewarding,” Baron said. The community garden, called HOPE Garden, is part of the Campus Y Homeless Outreach and Poverty Eradication committee, which Baron joined his freshman year. “HOPE is an immediate cause,” he explained. “(You) work directly with the people you’re serving.” After spending the summer before his sophomore year working with farmers in Tanzania, Baron had the idea to employ Chapel Hill’s homeless in seed production for those farming communities. But when he entered professor Jim Johnson’s social ventures class in the Kenan-Flagler Business School, his idea turned into a community garden and transitional job opportunity for Chapel Hill’s homeless. “By focusing on something right in front of you, your service is more effective,” Baron said of his departure from the seed idea. “It’s

a more sustainable process.” Lease a plot or The process has been long. It took Baron a semester to acquire volunteer with HOPE the 14 acres leased to HOPE by An 8 x 4 plot is $100 per year. the town of Chapel Hill. E-mail: dbaron@gmail.com Baron’s next step is to develop the land to include a vegetable and herb garden, 25 plots leased to community members, a fruit orchard and a flower meadow. “It’s important that the community accept it and see it as a place they want to come that’s aesthetic as well as productive,” he said. The 25 plots will be leased to community members for $100 a year, which will fund supplies and wages for the homeless participants. “They’re not getting paid at this point,” he said. “They’ve guided us through construction, and we’ve given them a safe haven to come during the day.” Baron said some at the Inter-Faith Council for Social Service, a homeless shelter in Carrboro, could have trouble moving on. The garden serves as a halfway point to move people back into employment. “When you’re worrying about where you’re going to get your next meal, a bed, it’s hard to think about work,” he said. Garrett, a homeless participant who wouldn’t give his last name for personal reasons, is a man of about 60 with an economics degree.

Departments reorganize to cut costs BY Lyle Kendrick and Jennifer Klahre Staff writers

UNC budget cuts have forced undergraduate and graduate programs to increase class sizes this semester and decrease the number of available sections. Departments have removed some sections and shifted seats to other classes to cut costs. The Registrar’s Office said about 200 classes have been cut this year. But the total number of seats has remained similar to last semester. “We’re offering the same classes, but some of the sections might be bigger,” said Dee Reid, director of communications for the College of Arts and Sciences. “We’ve increased the maximum class size

for first-year seminars and writing and language classes.” The 2009-10 state budget cuts about $37.5 million from UNC this year. Administrators said they tried to make reductions that didn’t hurt the school’s instructional mission. But students have noticed the slight changes. Senior Carly Brantmeyer said she saw many students trying to enroll in her already-crowded sociology class. “There were 15 or 20 people in the back of the room standing up,” Brantmeyer said. The cancellations have frustrated some students, who were forced to redo parts of their schedules. “I was signed up for five classes

The State Bureau of Investigation is continuing to examine evidence in the case. Randolph County Superior Court Judge Brad Long has sealed evidence, possibly including a dashboard video camera recording. “Part of this situation is that we are completely in the dark as well,” said Chris Rice, a 1994 DKE alumnus and member of the executive board.

Chapel Hill Town Council candidate Penny Rich became the first in North Carolina history to qualify for public financing in a municipal campaign Wednesday night. Not many plan to follow. The voter-owned elections program was started last year to level the disparities in campaign spending. It provides candidates with public money if they raise a certain amount on their own. Despite the financial returns, the voter-owned election program struggled this election cycle to attract participants. So far in Chapel Hill, only two candidates out of 12 have opted into the program: Rich and mayoral candidate Mark Orange County Kleinschmidt. Elections Kleinschmidt is yet to be officially qualified since he has not raised the requisite $1,500. If it weren’t for the voter-owned election program, Rich said, she might not have run at all. “It gives voters the opportunity to see people who might not usually run for election,” Rich said. “It’ll open the door for people who don’t have a ton of money.” Spending in past elections has become increasingly uneven. In 2007, Matt Czajkowski spent $20,417 on his successful campaign, taking the last seat on the council by 0.28 percent. The average spent by the other candidates was $3,950. The voter-owned elections program was approved by the council last year, with Czajkowski the only dissenting vote. “One of the candidates obviously demonstrated in the past that he has the ability to tap into his own resources,” Kleinschmidt said. “I’m not surprised he’d do that again, but the program is volunteer.” To qualify for the $3,000 in public money, Rich had to collect 75 contributions, totaling at least $750. After qualifying, she can raise up to $2,250 on her own. If the spending of other candidates reaches $8,400, she will qualify for an additional $2,000 one-time grant. Kleinschmidt can receive up to $9,000 in the program, in addition to the $4,500 he can raise himself. Three incumbent Town Council candidates, Laurin Easthom, Ed Harrison and Jim Merritt, voted in favor of the program in 2008 but did not join it for their campaigns. Chapel Hill mayoral candidate Augustus Cho was the first

Woofer, hailing from the Web domain www.woofertime.com, is quite the opposite of Twitter. It requires a minimum of 1,400 characters. Finally, a real chance to express yourself — in an extra 1,260 characters. Finally, a chance to be eloquent, use adverbs and not abbreviate. The most popular post is of Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address. Sadly, the project backfires when you realize that annoying Twitter users are 10 times more annoying on Woofer.

UNC researchers begin trial of potential malaria vaccine R e s e a r c h e r s f r o m U N C ’s Institute for Global Health and Infectious Diseases began phase III of RTS,S, a potential malaria vaccine, in Malawi this past month. Malawi is one of seven African countries included in the launch, which will enroll up to 16,000 infants and children. The first dose of the investigational vaccine was issued in Lilongwe, the capital of Malawi, at UNC Project-Malawi. The researchers at the site will recruit and enroll 1,600 children and anticipate completing the initial three-dose vaccination in December. Malaria kills close to 900,000 people each year, with most deaths occurring in Africa among children under age five.

Layoffs hit facilities services Library $4 million less allotted for budget By Jeannine o’brian Staff writer

Facilities Services will have $4 million less for their operating budget this year but will still be expected to keep the University looking good and running smoothly. Facilities Services is coping with a 13 percent decrease in state funds, which accounts for more than half its budget, said Brandon Thomas, Facilities Services communication director. As a result, the division has had to lay off employees, reorganize divisions and cut services. Facilities Services has cut 73 positions, including some that were vacant at the time, and will have to

find alternate sources of funding for five others, which had been paid for with state money in the past, said Van Dobson, assistant vice chancellor for Facilities Services. “The basic mission of our organization hasn’t changed,” he said. Administrators said the University eliminated about 300 positions across campus, 100 of those filled. Cost-saving measures include implementing less frequent grounds maintenance, rearranging mail delivery routes to make them more efficient and purchasing a mail-sorting machine to replace paid workers doing the job.

Less expensive, two-way radios have replaced cell phones as the primary means of communication between staff members, and exterior window washing was deemed a luxury item. “We’re doing our very best to minimize the impact on our staff,” Dobson said. Housekeeping Services laid off 13 temporary workers, housekeeping director Bill Burston said. During the past year, the division has scaled back office cleaning from five to two times a week. Each individual housekeeper will now be responsible for cleaning a larger section of campus on a less frequent basis. Meanwhile, the Facilities Services plumbing shop won’t be buying new tools this year. “We’re

a little bound, but it’s not too serious right now,” plumbing supervisor Kenneth Allen said. The Office of Waste Reduction and Recycling won’t be able to buy new equipment, either. The office will also be unable to take on as many projects this year because of the restricted budget, said B.J. Tipton, solid waste program manager. Due to the lack of funds, recycling will be picked up less often, and the office will hire fewer student employees and temporary staff. “There’s been a lot more emphasis on fiscal management, on making sure we have a balanced budget,” Tipton said.

But they’re giving them a chance. Since April, University Libraries staff has been consulting professors from each department to determine which subscriptions are expendable. Students and faculty members have until noon today to ask library staff to retain a specific journal. Because the University more than doubled its goal of saving $106,500 by cutting nearly $253,000, it is willing to save some of the publications if people express interest in them. Diane Strauss, associate University librarian for collections and services, said the library would consider reinstating a journal if someone objected. Thus far, few people have expressed concern. “I would be very surprised if many objections are forthcoming,” she said. “We’ve selected a lot of titles that are deemed not to be terribly important or useful anymore.” She said the $150,000 difference would be invested toward new journals and books that faculty members request. “And we’d like to be able to fill dth/Jessey Dearing those requests,” she added.

Art exhibit to highlight Cuba in 1960s, 1970s Images focus on politics and culture By Katy Doll Arts Editor

Cuban cinema has never been so colorful. Sixteen posters ranging from stark black-and-white images to fields of psychedelic flowers announce movies in every genre including newsreels, dramas and comedies. On Saturday, the Ackland Art Museum will open the exhibit “Almost Now: Cuban Art, Cinema and Politics in the 1960s and 1970s.” The exhibit includes 16 posters and one photograph — the iconic image of Che Guevara by artist Alberto Korda. “This exhibit shows the careful steps of the collector in making sure that this group of images represents this really canonical figure in Cuban politics and culture,” said Carolyn Allmendinger, curator of the exhibit. The posters were a gift from UNC alumnus and eminent art historian David Craven. Craven, who is an art history professor at the University of New Mexico, said the Cuban cinema was very different from Hollywood.

“The film creates dialogue with the audience,” he said. Craven described films that posed questions to the audience, rather than giving them all the answers. The Soviet presence in Cuba at the time was important, but the art is not what people traditionally think of as Soviet in nature, he said. “The open-endedness to the images is surprising because it contradicts what you would have seen in Russia, China and Vietnam,” Craven said. The exhibit will include information about the films, culture, politics and ways to find more information. It will run through Dec. 6. In September, the Ackland will screen several of the films in the gallery. Dates and times have not yet been finalized. The poster that inspired the exhibit’s title, “Now!” advertised a five-minute film about Civil Rights in America in the 1960s. “The image is mostly a silhouette and you see a little bit of highlight, like a bridge of a nose, cheekbone, forehead, furrowed brow, and right

“Now!,” a 1965 Cuban film, is part of an exhibit at the Ackland Art Museum called “Almost Now: Cuban Art, Cinema and Politics in the 1960s and 1970s,” which begins Saturday. A poster of the 1964 film, “Soy Cuba,” also part of the exhibit, is the result of a collaboration between Cuban and Soviet filmmakers.

Tar Heels down Monarchs By Chris Hempson

but North Carolina got the job done against Old Dominion, 2-1. After striking early in its last exhibition go-round, UNC again found itself on the doorstep of a goal six minutes into its contest against the Monarchs. Junior Michael Farfan, a transfer from Cal State Fullerton, stood primed for a free kick opportunity, but his shot into the lower right corner was deflected away, and the Tar Heels eventually won a corner. On the ensuing play, Farfan was again over the ball ­— as he kicked an in-swinger that met the head of senior Stephen McCarthy, a Santa Clara transfer. “I think (Farfan) was going near,” McCarthy said. “I don’t know if I was right. I headed toward the near and got lucky on that one.” In the Tar Heels’ last exhibition, McCarthy found himself in much the same position and finished nicely. This time would be no different as he edged UNC ahead.

Yet with usual right back Eddie Ababio sidelined, North Carolina’s first half defense was shaky, to say the least. With just less than 20 minutes to play, senior Javier Velez dinked a pass back to goalkeeper Brooks Haggerty. But the pass was so slow that an Old Dominion forward intercepted and rocketed a shot. Luckily for the Tar Heels, Haggerty was up to the task. But four minutes later, another breakdown in the back led to an ODU goal. “I was very, very disappointed at halftime,” coach Elmar Bolowich said. “I felt like we were wasting an opportunity.” Still, UNC didn’t seem panicked. The squad built up the attack and eventually won another corner. It didn’t seem likely that lightning could strike in the same place twice, but that’s what happened. For again, there was Farfan. Again, there was another in-swinging corner kick. And again, there

The second half had a different tone, as both teams went to their respective benches frequently. The play was reduced to a stalemate, though Haggerty did keep the Tar Heels ahead with several key saves. “Fortunately, (the team) pulled through and we showed better in the second half,” Bolowich said. “We’ll see how we continue.” Contact the Sports Editor at sports@unc.edu.

National and World News Kennedy’s Senate Two bodies found near Va. Tech seat may fill soon identified as sophomore students WASHINGTON, D.C. (MCT) ­­ Massachusetts officials said — Thursday they were eager to fill Sen. Edward Kennedy’s seat, with the prospect that for the first time in 56 years, the seat won’t go to a Kennedy. Widow Vicki Kennedy ’s name was mentioned, but family members were discouraging such talk. No one in the next generation of Kennedys is seen as a serious contender.

Two Virginia Tech sophomores were found dead Thursday morning, reports the Collegiate Times, Virginia Tech’s campus newspaper. In a university-wide e-mail, President Charles Steger identified the two students as David Metzler, 19, from Lynchburg, Va., and Heidi Childs, 18, from Forest, Va. Steger states the incident was an “apparent double homicide” and occurred Wednesday

NASA mission is Obama’s approval delayed third time hits a low point

MIAMI (MCT) — Tropical Storm Danny, stronger but still disorganized, wobbled a bit westward on Thursday morning, but forecasters still expect it to veer more north in the next day and half and skirt the Northeast coast. The National Hurricane Center’s three-day forecast kept the core of the storm off North Carolina. The center said it could post tropical storm watches from North Carolina northward later Thursday.

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (MCT) — NASA’s launch team has decided it needs more time to evaluate whether a questionable fuel valve is OK and has scrubbed Thursday night’s launch attempt in favor of a Friday night blastoff. NASA’s launch team and engineers met Thursday to make sense of the mixed data they received Tuesday from the valve’s sensors. Tests Wednesday proved the valve was working fine. This is the third postponement of the mission.

night. Both bodies had gunshot wounds. According to the Roanoke Times, no suspects have been identified and no weapons were found at the scene. Metzler’s body was found inside a car and Childs’ body was found outside. Both bodies were taken to the medical examiner’s office in Roanoke, Va. Their bodies were found in a popular student area about 12 to 15 miles from campus.

WASHINGTON, D.C. (MCT) — President Barack Obama, who enjoyed soaring public approval in the weeks following his inauguration, has fallen to 50-percent job approval in the newest daily tracking of the Gallup Poll. The Gallup Poll measured the president’s public job approval at a peak of 69 percent in January. The sliding ratings this summer have paralleled growing unrest about the president’s health care reform plans.

Greeks provide us one week of bliss

Featured online reader comment:

here are things you love to hate, and there are things you hate to love. For me, the latter begins a week from today. Friday, Sept. 4 marks the first day of sorority rush. And though it pains me to say it, I love every blessed minute of the process. Somehow I escaped the call of the Greek Sirens my first year of college, and I am happily “unaffiliated” to this day. So this time of year means something different to me. Instead of philanthropy and sisterhood, it means a lot of solid me-time. This year, I live in a house with four girls who are all in sororities. The Abbey Party started last Friday when rush practice began, and the blissful silence of a house to myself has continued ever since. No, I don’t throw afternoon parties or host séances with my closest Wiccan friends. And, to be clear, I thoroughly enjoy the company of all of my roommates, most of whom I’ve known for years. But sometimes it’s just nice to open the front door to an empty couch and a DVR all my own. And this isn’t the first year I’ve soaked in an empty abode with an appreciation I thought I’d never know. Although I resisted the lure of Greek row my freshman year, I somehow still wound up living in Granville Towers West, the home of tiny Greek seedlings just waiting to bloom. But when late August dawned, it was as though I lived in a ninefloor hotel where I was the only guest. The room service might have been subpar, but the elevator was always on my floor, waiting for me to press the button. The Agora was my personal chef, and I could sleep eight hours straight without disruption. And just when I thought that week couldn’t be sweeter, I became an RA in Granville my sophomore year. While most of the year I thought slowly pulling out my toenails one by one might be more pleasurable than spending a night on my own floor, rush week was a time when all seemed right in the world. No one pulled fire alarms, study lounge couches stayed out of the elevator and no one banged on my door at 4 a.m. just for kicks. And now that I have 21 years behind me, every benefit rush offers is at my disposal. The Greek community is 17 percent of the University’s undergraduate population. But even though they’re a fraction of the student body, somehow the sidewalks of Franklin Street seem pleasantly roomier with just those 83 percent of us wandering through them. Without lines of the eager underaged wrapping around the building, I might even venture to Pantana Bob’s one day this week. But I truthfully will be happy to have a house full of roommates again. (I might even get some free sorority house desserts out of it.) Until then, let us enjoy our time apart, Greek community. Our hearts could grow fonder before we know it. Yes, these next couple of weeks will work out splendidly for us both. “No booze, no boys?” Sounds good. More booze and boys for me.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR DTH newsroom could be aided by some diversity TO THE EDITOR: I was perusing the first issue of The Daily Tar Heel and was amazed by the Know your Newsroom page. The page was white as the driven snow — 10 white men, 10 white women. I can’t believe that it wouldn’t be more of a priority to create diversity in the newsroom. The irony was that on the front page was how the Class of ’13 is the most diverse class ever. I hope that some of them work their way into the DTH. Wendy Sease UNC ’92

Letter criticizing headline was insensitive, hurtful TO THE EDITOR: I was struck heavily by the insensitivity displayed in Brenda Davis’s recent letter to the editor (“DTH headline for Smith article was inappropriate,” Aug. 27). After

reading the letter, I couldn’t help but wonder if Ms. Davis shared the sentiments concerning the media’s coverage of Ted Kennedy’s death. Many of Ms. Davis’ comments concerning the late Courtland Smith could also be applied to Kennedy — who some have accused for causing a drunk driving death. However, I did not notice Ms. Davis berating the DTH for calling Kennedy a leader, nor demanding that the Kennedy family be eliminated (as she did with DKE). Robert Callaway Graduate Student Business

Tucker Max’s movie should not be shown here at UNC TO THE EDITOR: This past Wednesday night N.C. State University hosted a screening of Tucker Max’s movie, “I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell” as well as a question and answer session with Tucker. His movie is based on his real life experiences, which include sex with intoxicated women. This meets the legal definition of rape

because an intoxicated person cannot consent to sex. His movie also objectifies women and promotes a culture where rape is acceptable. We applaud the efforts of all the people involved in the silent protest against the film and Tucker’s actions, as well as those involved in the silent candle light vigil for all survivors of rape and sexual assault, including those abused by Tucker. Project Dinah sincerely hopes that UNC-CH will not follow in NCSU’s footsteps and invite to campus such an offensive entertainer who has no respect for women and makes his money by turning the assaults he has committed into entertainment.

Simple changes could make bus system more efficient TO THE EDITOR: It’s nice that the Chapel Hill buses are free, but I rarely take the bus because I find it to be more trouble then it is worth. I would be happy to pay to ride, only if the

system were more sufficient. The route maps show too few street names, making it hard to tell where to get off. Also, not having a pamphlet with a complete system map makes using the public transportation even more arduous. Then to top it off, the buses come infrequently and at odd intervals. Without Internet access, you must rely on the wasteful, separate maps for each route. If you do not have the complete set of route maps with you, how can you plan a trip involving transfers? You might also be out of luck if you

kvetch: v.1 (Yiddish) to complain To the hipster kid in my anthropology class: You’re four seats down across the aisle and I can smell you. Bathing is trendier than your “worn in” Pumas. Two seniors graduating in December placed in Craige with no air conditioning. Really, housing? Really? Professors: If you are forcing me to use five different Web sites to complete my assignments, then I should be able to use my laptop in class to take notes … and check Facebook. To all the freeloaders who couldn’t get into my economics class but keep coming and taking up seats: I am a senior and have earned my place in the only easy upper-level economics class, so cut your losses and move on. I do NOT like sitting on the floor. To the bad tippers in the Koury dorm: Don’t mess with delivery drivers. Next time you will be the last to get your food. Four out of five guys agree: There is definitely more cleavage this semester. To the girls who dress up like it’s prom for organic chemistry at 8 a.m.: Why? Dear UNC: Thanks for renovating all the pools … at the same time. If I get fat, I’m blaming you. To the girl on my hall who might have swine flu, PLEASE LEAVE. I’d rather not get sick and die the first week of classes. To the drunk freshmen on the P2P last weekend: No, Franklin Street is NOT the stop for Morrison (notice the shops and restaurants) and I don’t care if you’re “not usually like this” because I will probably never see you again. To the P2P driver who shut off his lights and went onto a side street after running a red light: You are a bus, everybody can still see you.

Having to shuffle through all the schedules, or consult each one online, in order to get from point A to B is not practical. It could be so much more simple. Heather Smith Chapel Hill
