SEXUAL ASSAULT ON CAMPUS
By Amanda Albright
Senior Writer
Its been 596 days. Her email was
lost in an administrators inbox.
The lawyer she paid for wasnt even
allowed to question her alleged
assailant during judicial proceedings.
Jillian Murray says she was trau-
matized by UNCs lack of response to
her sexual assault. The UNC student
filed a lawsuit August 20 arguing the
University violated a state law when
handling her sexual assault case.
Murray, who declined to com-
ment for this story, said she was
denied her right to have an attor-
ney fully participate when a panel
reviewed her case this summer.
Its an attempt to get the
University to create and use a policy
that complies with state law, Murrays
lawyer, Henry Clay Turner, said in an
interview Tuesday.
Associate Dean of Students Dean
Blackburn failed to respond to her
query on sexual assault for 20 days,
and the initial investigation of her
assault took 108 days more than
two months longer than investigations
were supposed to take, according to
Murrays complaint.
The complaint was filed about a
week before UNC unveiled its new
sexual assault policy.
There are three ongoing federal
investigations into UNCs inability to
properly handle sexual assault cases.
The Universitys compliance with
Title IX remains sorely lacking,
Turner said. That is not unique to
Jillians case. The University has
been failing its students for many
years now.
There are other instances detailed
in Murrays complaint that shed
light on a lengthy reporting, investi-
gation and adjudication process.
Murray requested more informa-
tion about her rights as a victim
three days after being assaulted in
January 2013.
She emailed Blackburn asking
about the rights given to sexual assault
victims. He took 20 days to reply,
according to the complaint. He told
Murray her report simply got lost in
[his] inbox, the lawsuit states.

notice of a students complaint of
alleged misconduct must notify the

Drama 160 consistently has a high percentage of athletes
By Robert McNeely
Senior Writer
Student-athletes have made up more than
20 percent of the total enrollment in the
Universitys stagecraft class since 2006 in
some cases, making up more than 50 percent
of the class.
Stagecraft or Drama 160 explores every
facet of a theatrical production minus the act-
ing. The class covers the technical processes
used in stage and set design.
The workload isnt particularly heavy,
and its just a good time of day for them, said
David Navalinsky, one of the primary profes-
sors for the course. People just take the class,
and the history of it was built well before I
started here.
Prior to 2006, the course was titled Drama
060 and had similar enrollment statistics.
When I interviewed for this position, I
was told there was a history of athletes taking
the class, Navalinsky said. You throw a rock
at Loudermilk, I guarantee youre going to hit
at least one athlete whos taken 160.
Navalinsky said while the numbers can
be noticeable during athletic seasons, he
remains relatively unconcerned about the
clustering of athletes in the course and thinks
it is a natural occurrence.
I dont really worry about it, he said. I
bet if you looked at what parts of fraternities
and sororities cluster, youd find the same
kind of things. People take the classes their
friends take.
Misleading percentages
Though the Department of Dramatic Art
has a history of athletes enrolling in large
numbers, dramatic arts chairman Adam
Versenyi said these percentages can be mis-
leading.
If you look at things demographically
there are different ways to slice that pie, he
said.
If you just looked at the raw numbers, it
would show up as a seemingly large number
of athletes in the course, but theyre not all
from the same teams or areas.
Versenyi said athletic clustering in the
drama department parallels how many mem-
bers of the schools faculty build their sched-
ules with coworkers.
We often rehearse eight hours a day, on
top of teaching in all the different depart-
ments, so that means we socialize with one
another, he said.
These are the people that we know, so we
work with them. I dont find it particularly
surprising that youd find students doing
similarly.
Measures taken

ing of student registration patterns to better
Survivor sues UNC for mishandled case
Court upheld
UNC ushers
lifetime ban
By Jordan Nash and Grace Raynor
Senior Writers
A former usher accused of harassing
University employees is still banned from
all UNC athletic facilities and events,
the N.C. Court of Appeals announced
Tuesday.
According to court documents, John
Donnelly Jr. was reprimanded several times
before the University imposed a lifetime ban
from UNC athletic events Dec. 3, 2012. The
lifetime ban was upheld in August.
According to the Universitys response
to Donnellys appeal of the ban, Donnelly
repeatedly called the athletic department,
made sexually suggestive comments to
female athletic department employees and
once showed up at an athletes personal
residence uninvited. He also attempted
to contact several womens soccer players
in person and via Facebook, the lawsuit
states.
His mannerisms and peculiar, focused
determination to interact with these three
young women, among others, was perceived
by multiple people to be alarming, the
Universitys lawsuit states.
Donnelly was represented by Kate Rech
and UNC was represented by Attorney
General Roy Cooper and Assistant Attorney
General Matthew Tulchin. The Department
of Athletics declined to comment on the
appellate courts decision. The attorney gen-
erals office and Rech could not be reached
for comment.
Donnelly, a 1970 American studies grad-
uate from the University, has been an avid
fan of UNC athletics and volunteered as
an usher during the 2006 football season,
according to court documents.
Donnelly appealed the lifetime ban, say-
ing the ban violated his First Amendment
rights. His response to the Universitys law-
suit included emails where employees of the
athletic department called him names like
human garbage.
This is a feeble attempt at limiting Mr.
Donnellys constitutionally protected First
Amendment right to freedom of speech
by purporting that the indefinite ban was
due to a pattern of unacceptable behav-
ior at UNC athletic events, Rech said in
Donnellys response.
In fact, it was because UNC officials
believe Mr. Donnelly to be human garbage
and creepy, based on the constitutionally pro-
tected statements he has made and because
he makes people feel uncomfortable.
All three appellate court judges agreed
the ban did not violate his right to free
speech because his speech was deemed
harassment.
(Donnelly) harassed athletes, the family
members of athletes, athletic staff members
and fans, Judge Lee said in the court deci-
sion. This behavior is not protected by the
First Amendment.
sports@dailytarheel.com
The volunteer usher made lewd
comments at employees.
WHY DONNELLY IS BANNED:
For several years, Donnelly participated
in both verbal and cyber harassment,
according to the lawsuit.

Donnelly repeatedly called the UNC
athletics offices up to 13 times a day.

He attempted to contact members of
the womens soccer team in person and
via Facebook.

He made sexually suggestive remarks
to female employees of the athletic
department.
Greenlaw Hall recovering from ood
DTH/ZACH WALKER
The large hole in front of Greenlaw was caused by a water main break.
like this in the future.
We replaced the 12-foot sec-
tion of that pipe and pressure
tested it and put it back in service
because we wanted you to have
air conditioning for class today,
Mullen said.
Dan Anderson, associate chair
of the Department of English
and Comparative Literature, said
the break did not affect him.
(The faculty) received emails
and updates over the weekend,
he said.
There was no water damage on
upper floors of the building.
By Carolyn Ebeling
Assistant University Editor
Students with classes in
Greenlaw Hall were greeted with
a large hole in front of the build-
ing Tuesday morning thanks to a
water main break that occurred
on Sunday evening.
An Alert Carolina message
informed students that the
break had occurred and the
building had been closed and
evacuated.
Some students were blissfully
unaware.
I didnt know about it, so
I guess I wish we were better
informed, junior Isabel Hagood
said.
Senior Sam James said he pre-
pared for the worst.
I honestly thought it was
part one of the English depart-
ments coup detat. I was ready,
he said.
Doug Mullen, UNCs chilled
water systems manager, said the
break came from a large crack in
a chilled water pipe that feeds the
air hammers in the building to
allow for air conditioning.
The pipe is cast iron and it
cracked due to age, he said. It
was put in in the 70s.
Mullen said most of the water
was outside of the building.
"(The water) came up onto
the bricks on the west side of the
building, and some got into the
lobby area he said.
When I got there, the valves
had been closed, and there was
some guy with a shop vac clean-
ing up some standing water in the
lobby area.
He said the pipe has since been
fixed and tested to prevent events
Following a water main
break on Sunday, the
building was evacuated.

Technology licensing revenue doubles
By Deborah Harris
Staff Writer
Making and marketing the latest
biomedical or computer software
discovery is not a quick process.
But UNCs innovation has paid
off, as the University brought in a
record $7.9 million from technology
licenses a 160 percent increase in
revenues since 2009.
The increase in revenues from
licensing technologies was set
in motion years ago, when the
University funneled money into new
technology businesses.
In 2013, the University cashed in
on two biotechnology companies it
helped start up: Epizyme Inc. and
Sarepta Therapeutics Inc., which
created a huge boost in revenue for
the school, said Andy Johns, associ-
ate vice chancellor for research.
The path was paved years ago,
Johns said. Its a one-time shot in
the arm, if you will.
UNCs goal is to move research
from the lab to the market.
Throughout the year, the Office
of Technology Development part-
nered with UNCs Kenan Institute
of Private Enterprise and Carolina
KickStart to identify and market
UNC technology with commercial
potential.
While licensing a technology to
an established company is the typi-
cal route, some are better suited to
be commercialized through a start-
up company, said John Sheridan,
assistant director of Carolina
KickStart.
The companies can take years to
bring the technology to market. When

English professor George Lensing reads one of Seamus Heaneys poems at an event honoring the poets memory.
Students honored the Irish writer with poetry reading
By Katie Reilly
Managing Editor
A Tuesday evening memorial for late
Irish poet and Nobel laureate Seamus
Heaney brought together two places one
thats known for its 40 shades of green and
another thats hooked on just one shade of
blue; one that raised a Nobel Prize-winning
poet and another that now houses much of
his poetic legacy.
Heaney, whose poetry was inspired by
the landscapes and politics of his home-
land, visited UNC twice during his lifetime.
He gave the 1996 commencement address
to a crowded Kenan Stadium and, almost
20 years earlier, he gave a poetry reading to
a small group on a Friday afternoon.
What an amazing, ironic, wonderful
contrast to the audience we had on March
30, 1979, when Heaney first visited, retired
UNC professor Weldon Thornton said at
Tuesdays memorial.
The Department of English and
Comparative Literature hosted the poetry
reading in honor of the poet nearly one
year after his death.
Professors, students and community
members volunteered to read selections
of Heaneys poetry, delivering lines that
were met with a mix of laughter, thoughtful
silence and applause.
Chancellor Carol Folt was the first to
read, introducing Digging, the poem that
has become one of Heaneys most famous.
This is a favorite poem of several
people who mean a lot to me, Folt said,
explaining that it reminded her of garden-
ing with her father.
Senior English major James Butler also
read one of Heaneys poems aloud.
Heaney was one of the first poets who
ever inspired me, he said.
Mejs Hasan, a UNC Ph.D. student,
attended the event not to read but to listen.
I wanted to get out and listen to some-
thing that was beautiful, she said.
The event was in Wilson Library home
to the Seamus Heaney Collection, which
contains about 1,300 items, including auto-
graphed first edition volumes of poetry and
handwritten letters between Heaney and
Henry Pearson, who started the collection.
I met Weldon Thornton, read at Chapel
Hill and felt charmed by the place, Heaney
wrote in a postcard to Pearson in 1979.
Bryan Giemza, director of the Southern
Historical Collection, said the Heaney collec-
tion has been a draw for literary scholars.
It definitely put us on the map, he said.
People are fascinated by Irish literature.
But the ceremony commemorated
Heaneys personality as much as his poetry.
Hes like everyones favorite uncle,
English professor George Lensing said. I
found him always ready and eager to dis-
cuss his poems.
Lensing, who organized the event, said
he hoped it would be a chance for students,
more than professors, to learn about the poet.
I thought this would be a good occasion
not just to celebrate Heaney but to cel-
ebrate poetry, Lensing said.
Giemza read Postcript, a poem from one
of Heaneys anthologies published in 1996.
I picked one from The Spirit Level for
those who cant be here with us but who are
with us in spirit perhaps the great poet,
himself, he said.
Its a sentiment that resonated with the
commencement address Heaney gave in
the same year.
From here on, the mark of the tar is upon
all of us, academically and indelibly, Heaney
said on that day. Let us rejoice in that,
because now we fare forth as Tar Heels of the
mind, and the world where we are to make
our tarry mark in lies all before us.

State & National Editor
Faculty members from UNC, N.C. State
University and Duke University were among a
small crowd who came to Research Triangle Park
on Tuesday to hear Rep. David Price, D-N.C., dis-
cuss federal research funding for the sciences.
Their questions for Price had a common theme:
What can researchers do to convince Congress that
the sciences deserve a funding boost?
Prices answer: It wont be an easy sell.
Not too many minds seem to be getting
changed, he said. Congress is in a five-week-long
recess and is supposed to finalize the 2015 budget
and funding for the National Institutes of Health
and National Science Foundation this month.
UNC-CHs 2012-13 research budget received
about 70 percent of its funding from the federal
government, or nearly $550 million. The NIH
accounts for two-thirds of those grants.
The NIH and NSF have experienced several
years of budget cuts. Research advocates such as
the North Carolina Triangle Chapter of the Society
for Neuroscience, which sponsored Prices visit
are hoping financial help is on the way.
Shannon Farris, N.C.s chapter representative,
said universities such as UNC and N.C. State that
rely heavily on federal support have had to turn
to private institutes such as Autism Speaks for
research grants in specific areas.
Fewer graduate students are working in the labs,
and some labs in the state have closed, she said.
During his remarks, Price touted his own his-
tory of supporting the sciences during his 13 terms.
But he said a budget amendment he intro-
duced this year which would have increased
funding for the NSF was not adopted because
lawmakers have no way to pay for such increases
without boosting government revenue.
Serena Dudek, a researcher at the National
Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, even
asked Price whether he thought initiatives such as
the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, which has raised

After a laugh, Price said he appreciated how gen-
erously people have donated to ALS research, but he
thinks such campaigns have limited effectiveness.
Demonstrating to lawmakers how research
directly impacts their districts is key, Price said.

Farris said she is hopeful support for the sci-

Express bus improves Orange-Durham commute
By Holly West
City Editor
Orange County residents
who work in Durham now
have an easier option for get-
ting to and from work.
Triangle Transit started
an Orange-Durham Express
bus that stops at the North
Hills Shopping Center
in Hillsborough, Duke
University Hospital, the
Durham VA Medical Center
and Durham Station.
It was created to relieve
parking problems at Duke and
UNC hospitals and to encour-
age the use of public transpor-
tation, said Craig Benedict,
director of planning and
inspections for Orange County.
We want to do two things:
We want to take the pressure
off the parking at those two
locations, and we want to try
to get people to stop driv-
ing those single-occupancy
vehicles, he said.
Benedict said many Orange
County residents commute to
Durham for work each day.
Theres thousands of
people that are in Mebane,
Efland and Hillsborough
zip codes that work at the
hospital and university, he
said. And there are more that
work downtown.
About 64.8 percent of
Orange-Durham Express
Triangle Transit is running an express bus between Hillsborough and Durham for
commuters. The bus runs during peak times on weekday mornings and evenings.

UNC sells the company, the University
receives one lump sum of money.
Such windfalls are difficult to
anticipate, said Jackie Quay, interim
director of technology development.
We consider it a success when a
technology is developed into a com-
mercial product, Quay said.
Because money is unpredict-
able, licenses are better measures of
success than money, Johns said. In
2013, UNC signed off on 63 differ-
ent technology license agreements.
UNC has done a lot of bench-
marking, Johns said. We are always
trying to improve our standing.
The University has granted
857 technology licenses and 791
patents since 1997, according to a
press release from the University.
In addition, UNC has received
$48.3 million in licensing revenue,
brought in $35.7 million in patent
reimbursements and created 91
technology start-ups.
Earlier this year, UNC began a
pilot program that awards money
to researchers to further test how
well their technology can translate
into real products on the market.
The University also halted overhead
charges for two federal grants, in
hopes of attracting more research.
I think that the doubling in rev-
enue would not have been possible
without the Office of Technology
Developments expertise, Sheridan
said. Theyve assembled a really
strong team that (has) done a great
job marketing and licensing UNC
technologies.
The University will channel the
revenue back into research, along
with federal and industry-spon-
sored funding.

ies are connected through

To access the express route,
Chapel Hill bus riders have
to take Triangle Transits 420

Bonnie Smith, a supervi-

services, lives in Durham and
takes the HU bus from the
hospital to the N.C. 54 Park

time is usually 30 minutes.
She said an express route
from Chapel Hill to Durham
could be beneficial, but she is
happy with the current system.
It might be helpful, she
said. But I basically just live
up the street, right next to the
Durham-Chapel Hill border.
The ODX route leaves from
Hillsborough at 6:25 a.m.,
7:25 a.m. and 8:25 a.m. each
weekday morning and arrives
back in Hillsborough at 4:30
p.m., 5:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m.
each evening.
The service is being offered
for free through Sept. 19. After
that, it will cost $3 each way.
The new service costs
about $63,000, Brad Schulz,
spokesman for Triangle
Transit, said in an email.
The cost was split evenly
between Orange and Durham
counties, Schulz said.

Carrboro hosts first pepper festival Kick-off events come to Franklin Hotel Registration open for business expo
Carrboro Farmers Markets first Peoples Peppers
event on Sept. 20 will celebrate the wide variety of pep-
pers grown locally.
Margaret Krome-Lukens, assistant manager of the
market, said market organizers have been wanting to
hold an event focused on peppers for a couple of years.
There are so many peppers sold at market, such a
wide variety, she said.
The market sells over 40 kinds of peppers, according
to a press release about the event from the market.
Krome-Lukens said the season for peppers is longer
than that of many other vegetables, and they are usually
sold at the market from about early August to October.
The event will feature a pepper recipe contest, where
market attendees will vote on their favorite recipe,
Krome-Lukens said. All of the recipe submissions will
be included in a cookbook that will be available for pur-
chase at the event.
Krome-Lukens said she is not sure how many people
will attend the markets Peoples Peppers event this year.
Its hard to say with a new event, she said.

ues in Chapel Hill in previous years. The Franklin Hotel
agreed to host this years shows.
They were looking for another place to do it this

Aldermen talk updating towing policy
By Patrick Millett
Staff Writer
Carrboro officials and
business owners are working
together to strengthen the
towns economy.
Clay Schossow, a member
of the Carrboro Business
Alliance, presented the Board
of Aldermen with the Alliances
plan for a campaign Think
Local First that will create a
network of local businesses.
The goals of the campaign
are to increase consumer
awareness, stimulate busi-
ness activity, enhance creative
entrepreneurship and create a
sustainable business network
within Carrboro.
We want businesses work-
ing together, Schossow said.
We wanted to reach out to
the periphery. We wanted all
of Carrboro proper.
The Alliance wants to
recruit a diverse set of busi-
nesses that can benefit from
working together.
The group hopes the
initiative will lead to more
residents buying locally and
spending more time and
money downtown instead of
going to Southpoint Mall in
Durham or other out-of-town
shopping centers.
Alderwoman Randee
Haven ODonnell was thrilled
with the alliances progress.
Thank you enormously.
This is sensational. This is
something we dreamed about,
I dont know a dozen years
ago, and its beautiful to see it
happening, she said.When
(Alderman Sammy Slade)
and I and a rag tag bunch
were working a locomotive,
we only dared to dream about
something with this promise.
Over the summer, Schossow
and other Carrboro Business
Alliance members surveyed
residents, studied previous suc-
cessful campaigns and learned
about the Business Alliance
of Local Living Economies,
a national organization that
advocates for local living.
With this information,
they were able to determine
the different target audi-
ences: Carrboro businesses,
Carrboro residents, day-trip-
pers, and tourists.
So far the Business Alliance
already has secured the financ-
ing from the BOA, made the
campaign slogan, draft report
on the town, reached out to
local business, assembled a list
of 400 businesses in Carrboro
and created sample ads.

OMG Music Fest
comes to Cats Cradle
By Dixon Ferrell
Staff Writer
Oh my God, teens will
be taking over Cats Cradle
tonight.
The Carrboro music venue
is hosting OMG Music Fest,
a youth music tour featuring
young pop, rap, R&B and soft
rock artists aged 14 to 20 years
old.
Tour host and director Lisa
McQueen has been promot-
ing youth talent since 2012
with her web series Playtime
and an episode featuring
her nephew Austin Mahone
grabbed the attention of
entertainment executives. She
continues to promote youth
YouTube sensations, includ-
ing some of the young artists
of OMG Music Fest.
I was able to meet quite
a few (young musicians) that
were very talented and just
hadnt had the right break,
McQueen said.
So what I did is I decided,
Why dont I just go ahead
and host my own show and
give them the opportunity to
showcase their talents? And
maybe they might get that
platform to get them their
break.
McQueen said the young
musicians have performed
30 shows in 35 days and are
arriving to Carrboro from
stops in Tennessee, Georgia
and Florida.
Performers will include
Jacob Whitesides, Reed
Deming, Round2Crew, Alyssa
Shouse, Grant Landis and
Tyler Matl.
Matl, a 19-year-old pop
singer, said he enjoys per-
forming on the tour.
We have a variety of differ-
ent artists who are going up
there and performing, he said.
Its super high energy and the
crowd absolutely loves it.
McQueen said the shows in
the tour engage fans usually
between the ages of 13 and 18
years old. She said OMG chose
Cats Cradle as a venue for its
centralized location in an area
with teens and tweens.

Its just like a big party

The energy is so incredible,
and everyone always leaves
happy.
McQueen said while these
musicians are young, they
arent new to the business and
have been cultivating their
craft and their fan bases for
years.
Whitesides has more than
970,000 Twitter followers
and Matl is nearing 70,000.

An ocean away, UNC
still feels like home
By Colleen Moir
Staff Writer
International students who
come to Chapel Hill are as
excited to come as UNC stu-
dents are to go abroad.
This semester, UNC is
home to 126 exchange stu-
dents from other countries
which is about 9 percent
less than the number of stu-
dents who studied abroad in
Chapel Hill during the 2013-
14 academic year. Half of these
students are enrolled for one
semester, and the other half
will spend a full academic year
here, said Adrienne Cromwell,
the Universitys International
Student Program Manager.
The students choose UNC
based on its reputation and
extensive course offering,
Cromwell said in an email.
UNC comes highly rec-
ommended to them by their
peers who were exchange stu-
dents at (UNC).
To provide a positive expe-
rience for the international
exchange students, UNC stu-
dents and administrators allo-
cate certain resources for those
who are new to the country.
UNC Easing Abroad
Students Entry is a student-
run organization that many
exchange students go to for
resources as they settle into
life in North Carolina.
The organization pairs
each exchange student up
with a UNC student. It also
provides services such as air-
port rides and regular social
events for the exchange
students and their men-
tors, along with community
members.
We give them the contact
information, and its up to
them to pursue the relation-
ship, said Rachel Gentry,
president of the organization.
Some of them become really
close, and some of them just
use the mentor as a resource.
Rafaela Granzotti, a senior
from Maringa, Brazil, said
her transition to UNC wasnt
painless but was doable.
It was not easy, but at
the same time, it was not so
hard, she said. In Brazil, I
grew up watching American
movies, so you already know
what to expect.
Catherine Dirks, who
studied at UNC during the
2013-14 academic year from
Sheffield, England, said she
found on-campus resources
helpful in her transition.
(The organization) was
fantastic with making it easy
to settle in, as was my room-
mate and R.A., said Dirks.
Alasdair Johnston, a junior
from Edinburgh, Scotland, said
he has found UNC to be very
different from his home school,
the University of Glasglow.
The standard of work is
lower, but you do more of it,
said Johnston.
Johnston said he has been
pleasantly surprised by the
school spirit in Chapel Hill.
I guess what really sur-
prised me most is how enthu-
siastic everyone is about the
University, Johnston said. I
was at the football game on
Saturday, and it was quite an
experience. Ive never seen
that type of hype.

The list of what Student
Congress cannot pay for is
short: no firearms, no T-shirts,
no lobbying and no food.
But Finance Committee
Chairman Joshua Aristy
persuaded Student Congress
to override, by a two-thirds
vote, the last restriction
on that list at its meeting
Tuesday.
Congress allocated $1,250
for food at events run by
Honor System Outreach, a
division of the student gov-
ernments judicial branch.
Aristy acknowledged
that food allocations are an
exception to the rules laid
out in the Student Code as
he described his support of
the proposal and repeatedly
asked Congress to approve it.
We can have a long,
healthy debate about this,
but I do really recommend
it, he said.
Aristy said food at
Outreach events will encour-
age faculty to learn about
the rewritten Honor Code,
in which they play a more
active role.
Its regrettable that we
have to use food to get fac-
ulty involved, but thats just a
reality, and thats something
that we need if we want this
Honor System to work so
that it can be viable, he said.
Otherwise were going
to have to change the whole
system.
Undergraduate Outreach
Coordinator Josh Green said
he believes food is an effec-
tive way to increase student
and faculty engagement with
Honor System events.
Students are not inter-
ested in the Honor Code that
much until theyre in it. But
they still need to know about
it, Green said.
Green said Outreach
receives $6,000 from
Congress for non-food use.
He emphasized that the
Honor System is not a parti-
san student organization.
We are a branch of stu-
dent government. So we
dont we really in a lot of
ways dont fit into the normal
category of student organiza-
tions, he said.
Honor System Treasurer
Allie Crimmins said research
from a professor at Duke
University showed increased
visibility of an honor sys-
tem on campus drastically
reduced honor violations.
Having some flexibility in
terms of finances is important
this year because its unclear
as we sort of experiment with
ways to reach out to faculty
and to reach out to students
which ways are going to be
most effective, Green said.
Student Congress mem-
ber Joseph Chaney voted no
anyway.
I dont think its going to
draw the crowd they think it
is, he said. Ive been in school
here for four years, and Ive
not seen any fliers about this.
Chaney said he thinks
students do understand the
basics of the Honor System.
I think that the students
here know that they cant
cheat. And if they do, theyre
going to get in trouble.
Aristy said the Honor
System is different from
most groups receiving
money from Congress
because it affects every stu-
dent on campus.
Sometimes you have to
make these exceptions to
make sure that one part of
you can survive.

Video depicts killing of
second U.S. journalist
WASHINGTON (MCT)
Ignoring his mothers plea for
mercy, the Islamic State post-
ed a video Tuesday showing
the beheading of Steven Joel
Sotloff, the second American
journalist executed in two
weeks by the extremist group
in reprisal for U.S. airstrikes
against its fighters in north-
ern Iraq.
Sotloff s slaying was cer-
tain to pile new pressure on
President Barack Obama to
devise a strategy for dealing
with the brutal group in its
sanctuary on Syrias side of the
border. Obama admitted last
week his administration had
not yet developed such a plan,
triggering widespread derision.
Sotloff, 31, of Miami,
appeared to have been execut-
ed within the last two days as
his killer referred to U.S. air-
strikes that on Sunday helped
Iraqi forces break a two-
month-long Islamic State siege
of Amerli, a town populated by
minority ethnic Turkmen.
He also appeared to have
been killed by the same sus-
pected British militant who
had beheaded American
freelance photojournalist
James Foley, 40, of Rochester,
N.H., on Aug. 19. The video of
Foleys slaying ended with the
militant threatening to kill
Sotloff unless Obama halted
the U.S. airstrikes which
now total more than 120
that began Aug. 8. Sotloff s
capture in Syria in 2013 had
been kept secret until he
appeared in that video.
Bernadette Mehan,
a spokeswoman for the
National Security Council,
said the U.S. intelligence
community was working as
quickly as possible to verify
the authenticity of the video.
A statement issued by Barak
Barfi, a Sotloff family spokes-
man, appeared to confirm
that it was genuine.
The family knows of this
horrific tragedy and is grieving
privately, said the statement.
The video of Sotloff s slay-
ing was first detected by the
SITE Intelligence Group,
a private organization that
monitors extremist internet
postings. Titled A Second
Message to America, it began
with a clip of Obama on Aug.
20 condemning Foleys killing
and vowing to act against
the Islamic State standing
alongside others.
Like Foley, Sotloff, a free-
lance writer for Time maga-
zine and other publications,
then spoke to the camera as
he knelt in a bleak, desert-
like setting. His black-clad
executioner stood at his side,
a knife in his left hand, only
his eyes left uncovered by the
black scarf swathing his face.
I am Steven Joel Sotloff.
Im sure you know exactly who
I am right now and why Im
appearing before you, said
Sotloff in a calm, steady voice.
It wasnt clear whether Sotloff
was speaking his own words
or those dictated by his cap-

have required them to travel

Manas, a university spokes-
man. One student remains in
another program in Haifa, in
northern Israel, he said.
Most of the recent fight-
ing has been near Gaza on
the southern border, but this
summer, rockets have reached
as far as coastal Tel Aviv in

fears of the Ebola virus.
tors. His statement ended in a
virtual taunt of Obama.
From what little I know of
U.S. foreign policy, you could
not win an election with-
out promising to bring our
troops home from Iraq and
Afghanistan and to close down
Guantanamo, said Sotloff.
Here you are now, Obama,
nearing the end of your term
without having achieved
any of the above, deceivingly
marching us, the American
people, into a blazing fire.
After Sotloff ended, the
killer was seen standing
behind him and beginning
to slice into his throat. The
video then cut to a picture of
Sotloff s bloodied head sitting
atop his corpse.
Changes made to study
abroad in high-risk areas
(MCT) Many study
abroad programs in the
Middle East and other hot
spots around the world have
been curtailed or postponed
as the number of countries on
the State Departments travel
warning list has grown to
three dozen.
The disappearance last
week of a rabbinical student
from New Jersey is the latest
event to heighten concerns
in Israel, where a truce was
called Tuesday after weeks of
fighting from the Gaza Strip.
On July 21, Israel
was added to the State
Departments list of coun-
tries that it strongly advises
citizens to consider not trav-
eling to, prompting several
American schools to suspend
programming there.
We have a policy here
that we do not send students
to any country that has a
State Department warning,
said Marina Cunningham,
executive director of the
Global Education Center at
Montclair State University.
The school suspended
a dance program in Israel
for the fall semester and
has postponed sending stu-
dents to Ukraine, which has
been racked by civil unrest,
Cunningham said.

dents to the dance program

Sculpture project rejuvenates town
By Paige Hopkins
Staff Writer
From Chapel Hill Public
Library to the Chapel Hill Fire
Station, Sculpture Visions is
bringing elaborate art to town
for yet another year.
Chapel Hill Public Arts
Coordinator Steve Wright,
who helps curate the public
art exhibit, said he believes
the annual project is a great
addition to the town.
I think it says that Chapel
Hill is a community that
values art and design, and I
think thats very appealing
and can help attract residents
and future residents and visi-
tors, he said.
I think overall it helps
define Chapel Hill.
Mike Roig, a local Carrboro
artist, has showcased multiple
pieces of work in exhibits
part of Sculpture Visions.
This year he has two sculp-
tures on display that are both
extensions from 2013. As a
returning artist, Roig said he
believes the exhibit provides
great publicity for his work.
Its a good opportunity for
me to get my sculpture out
in front of the public. When
youre making sculptures of
that scale, thats part of your
goal, Roig said.
Roigs Beautiful Whirlwind
is on display in front of Chapel
Hill Fire Station 1 on the cor-
ner of Martin Luther King
Boulevard.
Sculpture Visions aims
draws attention to art as well as
to the environment in which it
is presented. The outdoor ven-
ues allow people to see the art
without going into a gallery.
Public sculpture is a nice
way to introduce art into your
community in a way thats
outside of a gallery thats
out in the real world where
people conduct their business
every day, Roig said.
Sculpture Visions isnt just
for local artists the pro-
gram attracts sculptures from
across the state. Tom Grubb,
an artist from Washington,
N.C. was selected to show-
case his piece titled Chapel
Hill Voyager at the Chapel
Hill Public Library Sculpture
Trail. In discussing the nature
of outdoor displays, Grubb
said the aging process that
comes with exposure to
weather symbolizes some-
thing greater for his art.
I like the way you put (the
sculptures) up and theyre
green, and then they age and
they go away sort of parallel-
The ongoing exhibit
has added new
sculptures this year.
COURTESY OF TOM GRUBB
Tom Grubb, from Washington, N.C., was selected to showcase his sculpture titled Chapel Hill
Voyager, located at the Chapel Hill Public Library Sculpture Trail.
Public sculpture
is a nice way to
introduce art into
your community.
Mike Roig,
Carrboro artist
ing mankind on earth, he said.
Wright said he enjoys
spending time trying to
understand the different
sculptures and exploring the
mysteries they hold.
The more time you spend
with any of these pieces, you
discover really great aspects
of them, he said. I think the
more time and looking you
do at any of these pieces the
more you begin to appreciate
them. So, I like them all for
different reasons.
Grubb agreed that having
art on display around a town
enhances the lives of Chapel
Hill visitors and residents
and adds culture to common
places.
I think art enriches the
soul, Grubb said.
When you drive into an
area and you see pieces of art
up, immediately you have a
different feeling about the
people who live there and
what their priorities are.

Graduate student residence plans move forward
By Jasmin Singh
Assistant City Editor
Graduate students are a step
closer to new housing options
in downtown Chapel Hill.
The Chapel Hill Planning
Commission met Tuesday
night and passed a modi-
fied project plan for The
Graduate, a residential build-
ing that would be next to the
Franklin Hotel.
Jay Patel, project developer
and general manager of The
Franklin Hotel, said he is
excited to be able to provide
graduate students with a
housing option.
Its meeting a need that
has not been met, Patel said.
Most of the plans have tar-
geted undergraduates.
Though the original plan
included undergraduate hous-
ing options, the new plan
gears its units toward graduate
students, medical students and
other professionals in the area.
These are people who
are living and working in the
area, Patel said. For that type
of clientele to have that rental
option is really important.
If the Chapel Hill Town
Council passes the proposal
this fall, Patel said he hopes to
start building in early 2015.
Its all goals and expecta-
tions right now, Patel said. It
all depends on the timing of
the approving.
Instead of the typical stu-
dent setup of renting by the
bedroom, John McAdams
of the John R. McAdams
Company which is work-
ing with Patel on the project
said it would charge rent
by the unit to cater to work-
ing residents.
McAdams said the proposed
building would allocate 15
percent of its roughly 80 to 90
units to affordable housing.
The towns inclusion-
ary zone mandates projects
proposing five or more units
to provide 10 percent of the
units for affordable housing if
the complex is downtown.
They are actually doing
better, said Town Council
member Sally Greene.
But some committee mem-
bers said the main problem is
the buildings large size.
Commission member Amy
Ryan said she doesnt think the
building fits in that location.
Committee member Brian
Wittmayer said cutting the
affordable housing allotment
to the required 10 percent
could put the building within
the required dimensions, but
committee member Travis
Crayton disagreed.
I think that having den-
sity is good, and I think ask-
ing them to remove those
housing options isnt right,
Crayton said. Providing
those affordable units and
allowing more people to live
downtown is good.
But Ryan said the large size
intrudes on the downtown
historic district.
If that cost creeps into the
historic district, then I think
that cost is too high, Ryan
said. I dont think it offers
protection to the historic dis-
trict at the current height.
The Historic District
Commission will review the
proposal on Sept. 9 and the
Town Council will hold a pub-
lic hearing Sept. 15.

Student Action with Workers demands conversation with Ross
By Kate Albers
Staff Writer
When Senior Abigail
Owens and members of
Student Action with Workers
presented UNC-system
President Tom Ross with
a letter asking for a meet-
ing Tuesday, she said the
University could do a better
job of upholding its motto.
UNCs motto is Lux
Libertas, which means light
and liberty, she said. And
personally I dont believe that
our University is being the light
in this situation, and were not
giving workers liberty.
Owens said the letter calls
for a meeting with Ross and
other stakeholders involved.
Student Action with
Workers, a local project of the
national organization United
Students Against Sweatshops,
has been working to ensure
UNC-system schools cut ties
with the VF Corporation,
which is an apparel-provider
for the University, and wants
the University to require
apparel licensees to join the
Bangladesh Safety Accord on
Fire and Building Safety.
Were here delivering a let-
ter to President Ross hoping
that hes going to make the
right decision, Owens said.
This is not just about workers
rights. Its about human rights.
Members of the group
said the VF Corporation is
not ensuring the safety of its
workers to the same extent
as Bangladesh Safety Accord
apparel licensee members.
Signers of the Accord pledge
to contribute money to inde-
pendent inspections and
maintenance of the buildings,
among other things.
The Accord is this new rev-
olutionary way of making sure
these factories are safe, said
Senior Olivia Abrecht, who is a
Student Action with Workers
member. It functions despite
any government that might not
be willing to enforce its own
rules. It allows labor unions to
have a voice in the process and
thereby allows workers to have
a voice in the process.
Abrecht said the VF
Corporation is a member of
the Alliance for Bangladesh
Worker Safety, not a member
of the Accord, which she feels
doesnt protect workers as well.
David Harrison, assistant
vice president for legal affairs
for the general administration,
and Bridget Bishop, staff attor-
ney, met with the members
after they presented the letter
to discuss the next steps.
Bishop said they sent out
a memorandum on Friday
to UNC-system schools to
research what they are doing
and to request data.
So what were doing is
gathering the information
because we dont know,
Harrison said.
We have to figure out
whos doing what where.
So were asking them whos
sourcing their licensed mate-
rial in Bangladesh, what it is,
where they do it.
Bishop said Abrecht and
other stakeholders will have
the opportunity to speak at
a future date. She could not
guarantee Ross would be at
that meeting.
We definitely are taking it
seriously, Bishop said.

The first floor is pri-
marily classrooms, so no
books or personal property
would have been damaged,
Anderson said.
Mullen said the large hole
in front of the building is
being looked at by a contrac-
tor and should be restored by
this weekend.
The contractor is repair-
ing the pipe and the hole
was open because it was all
wet, and we wanted to let
the soil dry out before we
restore it, he said.
Sophomore Blaise
Dunsmith said he was pleas-
antly surprised by the condi-
tion of Greenlaw Hall.
I was anticipating the
entire building smelling
like poo, he said. Instead
it smells like books and old

Opportunity/ADA office within
five calendar days. Blackburn
did not respond to requests for
comment.
Blackburn then directed
Senior Associate Dean of
Students Desiree Rieckenberg,
who was the student complaint
coordinator at the time of the
incident, to handle the case
in February 2013, the law-
suit states. A few weeks later,
Murray met with Rieckenberg,
who said the Universitys policy
was in a state of transition.
Rieckenberg said she would
be back in touch with Murray
but never contacted her again
or provided Murray with her
rights, the lawsuit states.
The Universitys former pol-
icy, which Murrays case will be
processed under, required the
student complaint coordina-
tor to provide the complainant
with resources for support and
options available for pursuing a
complaint.
Rieckenberg did not
respond to interview requests.
Murray withdrew from her
spring semester, and, accord-
ing to the complaint, was trau-
matized by her assault and the
lack of reaction from UNC.
Murray made a formal
report of her assault in
January 2014 one year
after the incident occurred.
Her case was investigated
by two investigators, who
took 108 days to issue an
investigation report. UNCs
former policy stipulates that
investigations conclude 45
days after a report was filed.
An investigator told Murray
the investigation would be
extended 76 days into the
investigation, pushing the
conclusion to May 19.
Murrays case then went to
a grievance committee, which
adjudicates sexual assault
cases. The complaint states
the committee chair contacted
Murray with information
about her adviser, a student,
July 11. The former UNC policy
requires the chair to appoint an
adviser within five days of the
investigation report, but it took
nearly two months to do this.
The case went before
the grievance committee in
August, which is when the law-
suit says UNC failed to comply
with the states law allowing
students to have lawyers pres-
ent during sexual assault cases.
Murrays lawsuit hinges on a
law passed in August 2013 that
allowed lawyers to fully partic-
ipate in student conduct cases
other than academic cases.
Turner said under the for-
mer policy, he was not allowed
to cross-examine the respond-
ing party or receive information
directly from the grievance
committee.
Full participation of a
lawyer, if it means anything, it
means lawyers are allowed to
do lawyer stuff, Turner said.
The quintessential lawyer stuff
means questioning the oppos-
ing party. Thats probably the
most important function of a
lawyer in a hearing like this.
The lawsuit was filed in
Orange Countys Superior
Court. Turner said he hasnt
received UNCs official answer.
UNC spokeswoman Karen
Moon declined to comment
on the lawsuit, saying the
University doesnt comment on
cases involving sexual assault.
According to the com-
plaint, Murray wants a new
policy to be used that doesnt
violate state law, as well as the
courts declaration that UNC
is violating state law. She also
wants Turner to be allowed
to fully participate in her
upcoming hearings.
Turner said the new
sexual assault policy released
Thursday further bars lawyers
from being involved in cases.
It makes lawyers into pot-
ted plants in the hearing pro-
cess, he said.

Opinion Wednesday, September 3, 2014 The Daily Tar Heel 8
Established 1893, 121 years of editorial freedom
QUOTE OF THE DAY
FEATURED ONLINE READER COMMENT
The editorial about
Liberty was ridiculous
TO THE EDITOR:
On Sept. 2 The Daily Tar
Heel published an editorial
about Liberty University.
The author of the editorial
finished his article with a
striking and unfounded
statement, The payment
to Libertys football team
amounts to a literal endorse-
ment of a program that
makes the schools harmful
dogma more visible. There
are many things wrong with
this article including this
statement. But let me point
out a few of my favorites.
Number one: The author
mentions Jerry Falwell Sr.
He notes that Falwell was
an opponent of integration
and Martin Luther King
Jr. OK, so this is probably
the case. But are we really
going to go down the road
of equating a student body
with its founders. If this is
the case, then no one should
invite UNC to play football
either. After all, racists and
slaveholders founded this
university. Take a stroll
through the quad and see
Saunders Hall standing in
memory of a member of the
Ku Klux Klan.
Number two: I would
never pay money to be told
what movies I can watch
or what clothes I need to
wear. But is it really okay
to demean someone elses
education in a 200 word
editorial? So what if they
pay to learn creationism?
A simple game of football
doesnt mean that our biol-
ogy department is going to
start teaching it too.
Number three: The
author points out that UNCs
own intellectual mission
is undermined because we
had to dilute our scheduled
to play a smaller institution
who does not hold our same
academic and social values.
Does playing schools with
our same social and aca-
demic values apply to larger
universities as well? If so, I
guess we should stop playing
Brigham Young University
and Notre Dame too.
We invited Liberty here so
we could unleash the wrath
of our football team on them.
That we did. Go Heels.

Gillings should not

TO THE EDITOR:
Students, faculty, and
staff in the School of Public
Health today were wel-
comed to the fall semester
with a large selection of
local delicacies as part of
the welcome-back social.
The spread included raw
milk cheese cheese that
is made from unpasteurized
milk. The irony of serving
raw milk cheese in a school
of public health is hard to
miss. Pasteurization, which
kills harmful bacteria, is
one of public healths finest
achievements in disease
prevention.
Raw milk is 150 times
more likely to cause food-
borne illness and results in

First things first, Im the

the realest, I really enjoy lis-
ticles, aka taking my thought
processes and shoehorning
them into list format. So put
on your fun hats ladies and
gentlemen and those out-
side the gender binary and
lets get to listing!
Today we ll discuss the ALE,
or Alcohol Law Enforcement.
You know em, you love em,
you cant get enough of their
underage drinking citations.
If anyone has ever had a
run-in with these lovely peo-
ple, you might know they like
to attempt to assimilate into
Chapel Hill nightlife, much
like a chameleon with a neck-
beard in an Ed Hardy T-shirt.
I thought in order to help
these officers more effectively
blend in, Id make a list of
other, more believable disguis-
es. They need the help.
Singing telegram: Picture it.

officer singing Youre under
arrest, hashtag blessed to the
tune of Be Our Guest from

at least make the experience a

Not: OK, this one might be a
little more arduous, but trust
me: Just dress it in a crop top,
jean shorts and white high-
top converses, and no one will
notice. And when the time is
right, THEYLL OPEN THE
TRAP DOOR AND FIND
THE NEAREST 18-YEAR-
OLD WITH A BLUE CUP.
BSkis Delivery Guy: Really,
theres no one more loved by
the inebriated than the sketchy
car-driving, brown bag-toting
BSkis delivery guy. Honestly,
if the ALE just put on a BSkis
polo and visor, theyd become
the pied pipers of the young
and intoxicated. Theyd flock
to them like Toppers Pizza
emails to your inbox.
Popping out of a cake: This
utilizes the element of surprise
and nothing makes me want
to eat my sorrows more than
receiving a drinking ticket.
A speaker blaring Turn
Down for What: The anthem
of the 19 and obliterated.
Same pied piper quality of the
BSkis disguise but with more
vigor.
A pre-med student: Because
nothing says underage like No
way, Im pre-med too!
Your grandparents/distant
aunts and uncles: This doesnt
sound that plausible, but at least
it would make more sense when
they slip, Wait, how old are you
again? into the conversation.
Until next time, ALE. See
you on the other side of No
Booze, No Boys.

Hazing incident
needs stronger action
TO THE EDITOR:
In light of the recent haz-
ing event in the UNC foot-
ball team, I am very happy to
hear that head coach Larry
Fedora has given the four
players involved the slap on
the wrist they deserve.
They will be able to think
long and hard about what
they did while they are in
time out. Im sure they will
feel very bad about what
they did. They might even
want to say Im sorry.
Some might say that
these men should be pun-
ished more severely, even
taken to the police for the
alleged assault but they
were just messing around!
Hey, boys will be boys,
right?
Besides, its not like they
are adults or anything
theyre just college students,
definitely not subject to the
laws that real adults have
to obey!
At any rate, the Office of
the Vice Chancellor is inves-
tigating the event why
would the police, who are a
fully capable body which is
specifically created to deal
with crimes like assault,
need to get involved?
The vice chancellors
office will certainly be able
to hand out the proper
punishments!
After all, we all know
that UNC has a great track
record of the higher-ups
working with problems in
the Athletic department!

A disingenuous
attack on unions
TO THE EDITOR:
In his recent letter, Mark
Mix repeatedly attacks
labor unions. He claims his
organization, the National
Right to Work Legal
Defense Foundation, pur-
sues workplace freedom.
This is blatantly false.
The NRWLDF wants
to destroy unions. In their
own words, the NRWLDF
mission is to eliminate
coercive union power and
compulsory unionism abus-
es through strategic litiga-
tion, public information,
and education programs.
It is not surprising that
Mark Mix hates unions; his
job depends on it. He must
do everything he can to
make labor unions and col-
lective bargaining look evil
and corrupt.

Last year, the state spent
$61 million in production

tion away from North
Carolinas stick.
North Carolina is no
longer home to production
of films like The Hunger
Games and Iron Man 3,
which both benefited from
the program. Production
benefits the local economy
through on-site spending
and by employing North
Carolinians both tempo-
rarily and permanently.
The industry also increases
tourism. The N.C. Film
Office reported spending
of $244 million by produc-
tion companies in 2013.
Wilmington, the site of
17 series productions in the
past 18 months and once
the primary Dawsons
Creek location, is often
called the Hollywood of
the East. This decision will
render the cultural distinc-
tion meaningless.
There were 19,000 film
industry jobs in North
Carolina in 2013, and a
large portion will disap-
pear as a result of this cut.
There is no reason for
large-budget production
companies or their employ-
ees to have any interest in
North Carolina when much
larger incentives are avail-
able in Louisiana, Georgia
and South Carolina, which
all have 25 to 30 percent
incentives and no per-
project cap.
Those interested in
keeping the current tax
incentive program in
North Carolina can find a
petition at Moveon.org.
Allowing film
incentives to expire
is bad business.
M
any a college
student has pon-
dered the mean-
ing of life while holed up
in some forsaken nook on
campus while completing
their mountain of work or a
forgotten assignment. UNC
students deserve a comfort-
able place to work at all
times, weekends included.
The grind never stops. Our
libraries shouldnt either.
UNC has yet to keep a
library open 24 hours a
day, seven days a week.
While this might seem
like an inconvenience
hardly worth bringing up,
The struggle is too real
EDITORIAL
imagine having a disgust-
ingly large amount of
work due in one weekend.
On school nights, a trip to
the library is not always
necessary, as ones room-
mates, housemates and
suitemates tend to be on
the same studious page.
But as any student knows,
Chapel Hill weekends are
anything but quiet.
Two potentially cru-
cial nights of work time
when quiet space might
be most scarce Friday
and Saturday are the
only two nights when the
libraries are closed.
Several peer institutions
already offer 24/7 library
hours. Perhaps more inter-
estingly, though, is the
fact that two of our most
highly recognized peer
universities, the University
of Virginia and Duke
University, do not. Nobody
would begrudge UNC for
setting a high bar for these
two academic rivals.
If nothing else, keeping
libraries open 24/7 would
be a nice selling point to
prospective students.
Though some new
money would be necessary,
a skeleton staff would be
sufficient to ensure stu-
dents have a quiet space.
A security guard requiring
One Cards at the entrance
would guard against dam-
age by intoxicated students.
An always-open library
would be a smart and rela-
tively easy improvement
to UNCs campus.
At least one library
should be open on
weekends full-time.

On Wednesdays, we wear the truth
Eagle-eyed readers might
have viewed Tuesdays
graph about UNCs volu-
minous Yik Yak usage with
some suspicion. UNC, after
all, is home to twice as
many students as Duke.
It would only make sense
that our Yakking numbers,
when presented in ab-
solute, bar-graph terms,
would eclipse those of the
Blue Devils (who really
should have more to com-
plain about anyway).
But we crunched the
numbers, and its true: UNC
students really are more
inclined to yak.
We boast a 2.4 yak-per-
student rate (to date), while
Dukes remains a paltry .44
percent. Tar Heel victory!
In our Tuesday article about
increased One Card security,
Nathan Shafar, who manag-
es the One Card ofce, was
quoted making a dubious
claim that student PIDs
are public information.
The registrars website
backs this up. But UNCs
PID lookup service requires
the last six digits of ones
social security number, a
birthdate and, of course, a
CAPTCHA.
So, short of a public records
request, it seems your PID is
safe. But it explains why the
dining hall staf give us the
side-eye when we forget
our One Cards. If someone
goes to that much trouble
to get our PIDs, they de-
serve a meal on the house.
The state legislature has
made a point of overhaul-
ing North Carolinas voting
regulations.
A controversial new policy
would require voters to
present a government
ID at the voting booth.
This measure is ostensibly
meant to address extant
widespread voter fraud.
The State Board of Elec-
tions said potential fraud
revealed in an April report
could easily be the result
of clerical error. Four state
legislators were found on
the list of duplicate names
pointed to by advocates of
the ID law.
So, is voter fraud the
scourge of our democracy?
Probably not.
