Friday is the registration deadline for the May primary

Mark another deadline on your calendars
voter registration ends on Friday.
This year marks a shift in North Carolinas
voting schedule: last election cycle, citizens
could register to vote on the same day they
cast their ballots during early voting.
Now, voters must register 25 days before
the primary election, which is on May 6.
Early voting, which will take place this
year from April 24 to May 3, is also a week
shorter than in the last election.
The voting regulations passed last year
also allow people to vote only in their pre-
cinct and ban straight-ticket party voting.
UNC student government is sponsor-
ing a voter registration drive in the Pit this
week to encourage students to get regis-
tered before the deadline.
We are trying to accomplish two things
registering people to vote and handing
out information about the shifts in voting
procedures, said Wilson Parker, director of
state and external affairs for student gov-
ernment and president of the UNC Young
Parker said the drive is a bipartisan effort
by student government, Young Democrats,
College Republicans and the Campus Y.
In the 2012 primary election, 1,507 vot-
ers in Orange County registered during
the early voting period, said Tracy Reams,
director of the Orange County Board of
But some worry that the new laws will
keep people from the polls.
The changes affect people pretty broad-
ly, said former N.C. Sen. Ellie Kinnaird,
who represented Orange County.
Kinnaird has been working with groups
across the state to spread the word about
changes in voting laws resulting from the
new voter identification law, which requires
all voters to show valid photo IDs at the
polls beginning in 2016.
In this years elections, poll workers will ask
if a voter has ID, and, if not, they will provide
the voter with information on how to obtain
one before the 2016 election. Identification
will not be required to vote in either the 2014

get food
pantry by
fall 2014
By Mary Tyler March
Staff Writer
There are students on campus who are finish-
ing their days hungry, unsure how they ll be able
to afford their next meal.
A food pantry that could help these students
is in the works at UNC and is tentatively sched-
uled to open this fall.
The idea was conceptualized by UNC junior
Roderick Gladney, who said hes been develop-
ing an on-campus food pantry, named Carolina
Cupboard, since last spring.
There have been times when Ive been hun-
gry and not had meal swipes and not had a job,
he said. We were trying to find a way for stu-
dent government to reach out to students and
came up with the idea of a food bank.
M., a UNC sophomore who wished to remain
anonymous for privacy reasons, has struggled
with hunger, too.
For the first 13 years of her life, she and her
mom got their meals from a food pantry. Now
shes a full-time student, working two part-time
jobs and struggling to keep food on the table.
M. supports herself financially, but even with
two jobs, by the end of the two-week pay period,
shes still struggling for money to buy food.
Its really stressful to think about when Im
going to be able to eat, she said.
Carolina Cupboard aims to help students like
M. It would be student-led, but Gladney said he
plans to create an advisory board comprised of
student leaders and administrative staff, at the
suggestion of Dean of Students Jonathan Sauls.
Gladney said, for now, the pantry will just be
open to students predominantly below the pov-
erty level before it is opened to staff and faculty.
We hope we get enough momentum so we

Alpha Sigma Phi colony grows on campus
By Claire Smith
Staff Writer
Last summer, UNC sophomores and roommates
Connor DeHaven and Corey Cobb spent hours
thinking about how they were going to leave their
mark on campus.
Their solution? Create a new fraternity.
At first we had a network of friends and friends
of friends. Initially we didnt have to market very
much because we knew these people really well.
Now its just been a process of expanding that net-
work to friends of friends of friends, Cobb said.
In November, the duo met with Aaron
Bachenheimer, director of the Office of Fraternity
and Sorority Life and Community Involvement,
to express their interest in adding another social
fraternity on campus to the 23 existing chapters.
Bachenheimer said its rare that students try
to pitch a new fraternity or sorority with such a
well-executed plan.
The way I see it, the survival of fraternities on
campus is a lot like capitalism. We let them start
and then see how far they get. Some of them go on
to be great and others flop, Bachenheimer said.
DeHaven and Cobb had perfect timing to
express their interests, because the national
Alpha Sigma Phi fraternity had also recently
contacted Bachenheimer about starting a chapter
at UNC. Within a month of the initial meeting,
DeHaven was on a flight to Indiana to participate
in a national conference for the fraternity.
With the help of Alpha Sigma Phis National
Expansion Coordinators Robbie Layman and
Connor Gau, the fraternity is now an official col-
ony at UNC, and is a recognized member of the
Interfraternity Council. The colony currently has
68 members and will participate in fall rush.
Its been like running a small business, you
have to worry about what all these individuals in
your group want, what you as leadership want and
how to bring those two things together, Cobb said.
Its taught me how to let go a little. As the group
grows you have to trust people that you bring in,
because no single person can be in charge.
But the young fraternity has a six-month journey
ahead of it before it is officially chartered nation-
ally as well as within UNC. The group will have to
maintain a strong GPA, hold a philanthropic event
on campus and learn about the history of the frater-
nity, which was founded in 1845 at Yale University.
This group has a good problem right now,
they have about 70 pledges, so they need to work DTH/LOUISE MANN CLEMENT

Objections to Blurred Lines cause stir at Fitzgeralds
By Jenny Surane
City Editor
What started with a spat between
a UNC student and a disc jockey at
a bar Saturday night ended with a
boycott and a formal apology from
the pub.
When a DJ at Fitzgeralds Irish
Pub played Blurred Lines, Liz
Hawryluk stepped into the DJ box
to ask him to stop.
Critics say the song promotes
rape culture with lyrics like I know
you want it.
Hawryluk said she was then asked
to leave the bar completely.
But Lauren Shoaf, a spokes-
woman for Fitzgeralds, said it was
a misunderstanding, and the UNC
senior was only asked to leave the
DJs area, not the bar.
Fundamentally, all I was aim-
ing to do is to create a safe space in
the Carolina community, Hawryluk
said. In a lot of ways, violent or
graphic images that allude to sexual
violence are triggers.
Hawryluk took her fight to
Facebook. Dozens of students and
community advocates flooded
Fitzgeralds Facebook page, con-
demning the pub for allowing the
incident to occur.
This week, Fitzgeralds issued a
formal apology to Hawryluk and her
This song is played by many DJs
at Fitzgeralds, and other places,
but it will never be played here
again, Shoaf said in her apology to
The DJ, who was only visiting
Fitzgeralds that night, will not be
allowed to return to the pub, Shoaf
said in her apology.
Hawryluk said it is incidents
like that of Saturday that make her
appreciate programs like Raise the
Bar, a program sponsored by UNC
Student Wellness that trains bar
staff to be more aware of issues
regarding alcohol impairment and
sexual assault.
Local DJs also stepped forward to
help Hawryluks cause.
Junior Trevor Dougherty, who
performs as a DJ under the name
good ratio, read Hawryluks Facebook
posts and decided he had to step in.
I just think its totally unaccept-
able for DJs in a college town or
anywhere to play it, Dougherty
said. As a good DJ you can do better
than playing a track that is so over-
played and so insensitive.
Dougherty, who is studying abroad
in Tokyo this semester, began posting
negative reviews on Fitzgeralds page
for the bars actions.
I think the bar and club culture
in Chapel Hill and beyond needs
a lot of help in the way it treats
women, Dougherty said. Especially
in a liberal and educated college
town, I think young women should
feel safe to go out and have a drink
and enjoy themselves.
While Hawryluk said some of
her friends had agreed to return to
Fitzgeralds after the bar issued its
apology, she wouldnt be returning.
But thank you so much to the
community who has spoken to
address this issue and to the bars
and companies on Franklin who are
willing to speak out.
A student said she was
asked to leave Fitzgeralds
after arguing with the DJ.

Freshman right-hander A.J. Bogucki threw seven innings, allowed one hit and struck out 10
in his first career start in Tuesdays 10-0 win against North Carolina A&T.
By Morgan Swift
Staff Writer
David Caldwell has been lobbying for improve-
ments to the Rogers Road neighborhood all his
life, and now some of those improvements are
closer to becoming a reality.
Caldwell, a long-time advocate for Rogers
Road and a candidate for Orange County sheriff,
said he feels the lack of a sidewalk on the west
side of Rogers Road is dangerous.
Kids cant walk to school, and people are
standing in ditches waiting for the bus, he said.
Its a hazard.
The town of Carrboro will hold an informa-
tional meeting for a proposed sidewalk on the
west side of Rogers Road Thursday. There is
already a sidewalk on the east side of the road.
Since the voters of Carrboro approved a bond
referendum for the purpose of constructing side-
walks and greenway trails in 2003, 22 sidewalks
have already been created.
The next goal of the project will be the construc-
tion of a one mile sidewalk spanning Rogers Road
from Homestead Road to Meadow Run Court.
The Rogers Road sidewalk project will be fund-
ed with bond funds and state and federal funds.
Thursdays meeting will allow residents of Rogers
Road and adjacent streets to provide feedback to
the Town of Carrboro about the proposed design.
Alderman Sammy Slade said the town was
seeking cooperation from the Rogers Road com-
munity concerning the project.
Caldwell said he does not foresee any problems
occurring between the town and community
residents, and he thinks the project should have a
greater sense of urgency.
Alderman Randee Haven-ODonnell said the
town was interested in hearing any questions the
community may have.
Haven-ODonnell said the project was about
more than just safety.
It will create a better sense of community
because the sidewalks on both the east and west
side will connect the neighborhoods, she said.
If there are no objections from residents, Slade
said the next step will be to continue the process
and build the sidewalk.
Rogers Road residents want
more walkways to improve safety.
Freshman A.J.
Bogucki pitched
a near no-hitter
in his debut
to talk
By Michael Lananna
Sports Editor
A.J. Bogucki was only six pitches into his
first collegiate start, and already, a catchers
glove could be heard popping in the left-
field bullpen.
Already, North Carolina A&T had a
baserunner standing on first. Already,
North Carolina catcher Korey Dunbar had
approached the mound. Stay pitch-to-
pitch, he told the right-hander. Just con-
centrate on the next pitch.
After a first-pitch strike, Bogucki had
thrown five straight balls. UNC pitching
coach Scott Forbes has never been shy
about pulling pitchers early the leash
was tight, the window swiftly closing.
The next two pitches? Both strikes.
Then a grounder to short. Then another
grounder. Then a swinging strikeout on a
91 mile-per-hour heater. Then seemingly
out of nowhere 5.1 more innings of no-
hit baseball.
In a 10-0 laugher of a UNC (19-13) win,
Bogucki, a freshman right-hander, was
Tuesday nights sterling jewel. He struck
out 10 batters and allowed just one hit
across seven frames, going from a near
early exit to a near no-hitter, with his lone
blemish coming on a one-out single to right
field in the top of the 7th.
I wasnt really thinking about the no-
hitter, Bogucki said afterward.
His mind was occupied with another
goal: Whenever a UNC pitcher tosses a
shutout, he has the chance to pick up a bat
and participate in batting practice.
I want to hit BP the next time we go to
practice, he said, smiling, in the Boshamer
Stadium lobby after the first win of his
Coming into Tuesdays start, Boguckis
work had been limited, his numbers unim-
pressive. He had pitched just 3.2 innings in
five appearances, allowing seven hits, four
walks and two runs.
But in his first chance as a starter a
role the Gilbertsville, Pa., native filled in
high school Bogucki flashed some of the
tools that made him a highly touted recruit.
He worked through some early ner-
vous energy, and once he found the strike
zone, he rarely relinquished control of it.
He pounded every quadrant of the zone
with a fastball that sat in the high 80s and
touched the low 90s, jamming right-hand-
ers inside with its late running movement
and mixing in a hard-breaking slider to
keep batters on their toes.
We threw a lot of fastballs, and he just
dotted them up, Dunbar said. Hitting his
spots unbelievably.
Dunbar said multiple times that he was
proud of the freshman. He admitted that
he had the potential no-hitter in the back
of his mind.
But I honestly dont even think that was
running through (Baguckis) head, Dunbar
said. We preach to him, This pitch. Just
this pitch. And thats exactly what he did.
His lone mistake was a fastball that
missed its low-and-away target, found the
middle of the zone and dropped in the
right-center-field gap off the bat of Stefan
Jordan. Despite the disappointment,
Bogucki again focused on the next pitch
and struck out the following two batters.
Coach Mike Fox said that moment
showed maturity in Bogucki it exempli-
fied Forbes live-in-the-moment mentality.
I think that really helped me tonight,
Bogucki said. The first batter I walked and
thought Id clear that from my mind and
just go after the next hitter.
Then he went after the next one.
And the next one
And the next one.

CHCCS dropout rate dips to one of lowest in state

Staff Writer
Last updated in 2012, the UNC-
system drug policy might be in for
serious revisions because of students
right here at UNC.
As part of a capstone project,
a group of six masters students
within the Department of Health
Behavior in UNCs Gillings School
of Global Public Health have part-
nered with the North Carolina
Harm Reduction Coalition to
encourage a new system-wide drug
policy that would reflect recent
changes in state regulations.
Last year, the N.C. General
Assembly passed the Good
Samaritan Law/Naloxone Access
Law and the Possession of
Needles/Tell Law Officer act.
The first law states that if an
individual is overdosing and some-
one seeks help for that person,
neither individual can be pros-
ecuted for the possession of a small
amount of drugs or drug parapher-
nalia. The law also encourages the
dispersal of Naloxone, an opiate
overdose reversal drug.
Ariana Katz, one of the six
students working on the project,
said that to compose and advocate
for revisions, the group turned to
UNC students by way of an online
One of the reasons why we want-
ed to survey the students is because
theres not a ton of good data specifi-
cally regarding overdoses on college
campuses, as well as just opiate use
in general, Katz said.
Though Katz was unable to
comment specifically on survey
results, she said the findings were
helpful in supporting their cause.
Phil Hanson, another member
of the group, said there is no indi-
cation that drug use at UNC is
worse than at any other university.
From the bit of information
that I have, there is not necessarily
any indication that UNC has some
kind of epidemic or anything like
that, he said.
However, overdoses are general-
ly increasing in the population and
we know that a high risk population
for drugs in general is often young
people and people in college.
Leilani Attilio, a coordinator for
the North Carolina Harm Reduction
Coalition and instructor for the cap-
stone team, said the work she has
done with UNC students is proof of
the drug use on campus.
And then I tell them the story
how some say drugs arent an issue
and theyre like, No theres been a
couple times when I thought my
friend was going to overdose, she
Though the team plans to pres-
ent its revisions to the UNC-system
Campus Security Initiative, as well
as to administrators in Student
Affairs and Student Wellness across
the system during April, there is no
guarantee as to if or when changes
will be made.
Even though our project ends
this semester, and even though
we will be distributing this policy
brief shortly, realistically we dont
expect to see a change this year.
These processes are often times
complicated and slow, Hanson
With that said however, there is
definitely some direction towards
change, which is promising.

Chapel Hill-Carrboro City
Schools is celebrating the districts
lowest dropout rate in the past 15
Twenty-three students were
counted as dropouts last year, for a
dropout rate of 0.4 percent, accord-
ing to this years annual report. That
number has decreased from 1.04
percent, which was posted in the
2007-08 school year .
Orange County Schools had 54
students drop out last year, which
equated to a dropout rate of 1.54
percent. Durham Public Schools had
a dropout rate of 2.18 percent, with
323 students who dropped out in
the past year.

The program mentors provide
students with tutoring, mentoring,
leadership training and scholarship
support services, according to the
organizations website.
The organization is designed to
improve the achievement of African-
American and Latino students, and
it has also helped the district battle
its widening achievement gap the
term used to describe the disparity
between the academic performance
of black and Hispanic students and
their white peers.
The district met 96.6 percent
of the 560 federal goals last year,
according to a press release from the
district in November. The district
also met 94.6 percent of the states
947 Common Core goals.
Of the 27 achievement goals the
district did not meet last year, 20
were from the economically disad-
vantaged students group.
Its not specifically academic,
said James Barrett , a member of the
districts Board of Education.
Its great to see support for kids
to see what their goals are and
what they need to do accomplish
Barrett said Rep. Graig Meyer ,
D-Orange, did a great job with the
program as coordinator.
Barrett also said the Blue Ribbon
Youth Leadership Institute and
Phoenix Academy High are orga-
nizations that helped decrease
the dropout rate in Chapel Hill-
Carrboro City Schools.
I think we have put together
a really good group of programs
between the mentoring work that
we do, as well as the great work we
do at our alternative high school,
Phoenix Academy, Barrett said.
The Phoenix Academy is
within the Chapel Hill-Carrboro
High School and serves 35 to 45
students. The academy targets
students that have been severely
dissatisfied with the educational
system in Chapel Hill-Carrboro
City Schools.
Barrett said he thinks these pro-
grams help keep students in school.
I think all of these things con-
tribute to a great environment for
our students.
The district has seen a
decline in high school
dropouts since 2007-08.

primary or midterm election.
Students usually dont
vote in primaries, but the
change really affects students
because theyre busy and then
all of a sudden its time for the
election, Kinnaird said.
Parker said the changes in
the law significantly impact
student voter turnout.
It almost seems to me
like they were designed to
(decrease student turnout). If
you look at the changes, the
biggest one is the elimination
of same-day voter registra-
tion, he said. That is hugely
beneficial to students.
In the past, students would
often vote at a precinct that
was not theirs by casting a
provisional ballot because
they either didnt know what
the right precinct was or were
unable to get to it on Election
Day, he said. Now, provisional
ballots are not guaranteed to
be counted in voting totals.
My understanding is that
most of the time, and at the
very least when it matters, the
state would count the provi-
sional ballot, he said. Now,
youre out of luck.
The new early voting site
near UNCs campus is located
at North Carolina Hillel on
West Cameron Avenue.
Bob Hall, executive direc-
tor of the left-leaning organi-
zation Democracy N.C., also
said the regulations will likely
influence students.
Young people are procras-
tinators. We need to ring the
bell loud enough to get their
attention now, he said.
Hall said in the 2012 gen-
eral election, 97,000 North
Carolinians walked into early
voting locations, registered
and voted all in the same day.
Of those who took advan-
tage of registering during
early voting, 44 percent were
younger than the age of 30.
In a primary, fewer people
tend to vote, so your voice can
have a larger impact, Hall said.

global studies major, changed
his address during the regis-
tration drive. He said while
the process was simple, the

But Susan Myrick, an

taking away same-day regis-
tration will have an effect on
overall turnout.
(Same day registration)
didnt increase voter turn-
out when it started, so I
dont think it will decrease
voter turnout, she said. It
increased early voter turnout.

can help staff as well, he said.
If theyre hungry, that means
their families are hungry.
There is a supplementary
food source in place for UNC
housekeepers, called Carolina
Campus Community Garden
that provides free produce.
In order to provide food,
Gladney said he wants to
work with Carolina Dining
Services to use food that
would have been thrown
away and give it back to the
students. Gladney also wants
to see nonperishable foods
donated and if possible
start a swipe donation pro-
gram in the dining halls.
There are food banks in
the Chapel Hill and Carrboro
area, but it may be inconve-
nient for students to go off
campus to get food, he said.
I want this one to be acces-
sible and sustainable.
Gladney said he would also
try creating partnerships with
stores like Whole Foods, Food
Lion and Harris Teeter that
could potentially donate to the
campus food supply. He wants
to work with the Residence
Hall Association and create a
partnership in order to host
food drives in dorms.
We want to make sure its
planned out each month so
there is a continuous intake of
food, he said.
Gladney said he is cur-
rently trying to find a location
on campus to use as a storage
unit for the pantry but in
the meantime, he is willing to
use his apartment for storage.
A statewide trend
Other colleges across the
state have already started
on-campus food pantries and
have seen a positive response.
Ellen Furby, the execu-
tive director of the student
leadership team for N.C. State
Universitys food pantry, said
anyone who is a member of
the NCSU community stu-
dents, faculty or staff can
use it without proof of need.
Literally anyone can walk
in the door, she said. We
work off of the assumption
that if you are walking in
the door and youre strong
enough to do that then youre
in need we operate on the
honor system in that respect.
Furby said the idea came up
when professors started notic-
ing more and more students
struggling with food insecurity.
The need was definitely
on collaborating the brothers
and growing the brother-
hood, Layman said.
They have a lot of bench-
marks and goals and accom-
plishments to be awarded the
title of being a chapter. They
will have to show us that they
can continue to grow as a fra-
ternity and not stay stagnant.
Now that the expansion
phase is over and Layman and
Gau have left, more national
members are expected to come
to UNC to help with the colo-
nization process, which will
entail holding elections and
chapter meetings to set goals
for the upcoming year.
Everyone I have met that
has expressed interest has
been a true gentleman and a
leader on campus. All of the
guys are so involved in cam-
pus and are so eager to just
dive in deeper, Layman said.
Sophomores Ellis Dyson
and Colin McDowell went to
high school together in Cary,
and they met DeHaven and
Cobb their freshman year on
the volleyball court of their
dorm, where they quickly
became close friends.
Dyson and McDowell,
quickly jumped on the oppor-
tunity to be a part of a new fra-
ternity on campus that would
be different from many of the
pre-existing groups on campus.
We were given a really
good opportunity by getting
the chance to come to UNC,
and this is our chance to give
back, McDowell said.
DeHaven and Cobb said
they aim to create an environ-
ment of inclusivity in their
new fraternity, and they dont
want to leave anyone out who
cant afford the new member
dues of a fraternity at UNC
dues are $1,400 on average.
Brothers of Alpha Sigma Phi
will pay a one-time fee of $700
to become a national member,
and yearly dues of about $200.
Because money was a big
obstacle for DeHaven when it
came to joining a fraternity his
freshman year, he didnt want
it to create any difficulties for
any potential new members.
Its a more organic broth-
erhood than you would get
than just rushing a random
fraternity. To compile the
separate groups of friends
makes it easy to just join in.
Were just getting started but
you can really feel the broth-
erhood, Dyson said.
there, she said. There were
people who couldnt focus
during class because they
hadnt eaten all day and
people who had to choose
between books and food.
NCSUs pantry probably
serves about 70 to 80 people
per month, she said.
I think most people dont
even know that there is a
need, and when they hear
there is one and its being
utilized, they are surprised by
that, she said.
Furby said while the number
of people the pantry serves has
increased, its probably because
of awareness of the program
rather than an increased need
in the community.
We want people to be
aware, but we also dont want
people to have a need for it
anymore, she said. Our goal is
to work ourselves out of a job.
Unique gap on campus
Sally Parlier, volunteer
coordinator at Durham
Technical Community
College, said many students
on campus are living at or
below the poverty line, and
the campuss food pantry is in
place to serve them.
Parlier said many of the
pantrys users are in need of
federal assistance but might
not qualify for financial aid.
We thought of ourselves
as filling a unique gap on
campus, she said. As a col-
lege student, if youre juggling
jobs and classes and family
responsibilities, you dont
have a whole lot of extra time
to go out and find a food
pantry that is open to fit your
schedule. We thought bring-
ing a food pantry and having
it in an academic building
where it was easy to access
would be good for students.
Parlier estimated the pan-
try sees about 100 visits per
week 60 of these visits
being unduplicated visitors.
When we first opened, we
probably anticipated serving
20 to 30 people in the first
week, and we saw that on our
first day, she said. Im sure
there are people out there
who could use our help and
who havent heard of us yet.
Right now were doing the
best we can to feed the people
who come to us.
N.C. Central University

pus pantry last Monday.
Deborah Bailey, director of

tion to food. Its currently only

yet it was his career, his schol-

was at stake, Orr said.

he was unable to play, but
because of the eligibility deci-
sion by the NCAA, he didnt
have that chance.

clarify linguistic elements.

Michael Russell thrives in leado spot
Junior shortstop Michael Russell went 4-for-4 in the leadoff bat-
ting spot against N.C. A&T on Tuesday at Boshamer Stadium.
By Aaron Dodson
Assistant Sports Editor
Hed only done it once,
maybe twice, in about three
Typically a middle-of-the-
order hitter, North Carolina
junior shortstop Michael
Russell and the leadoff bat-
ting spot were unfamiliar
But with the Tar Heels des-
perate for a spark after a six-
game losing streak, coach Mike
Fox decided to shuffle the deck.
Without even telling his
teams best hitter before he
reached Boshamer Stadium
last Tuesday, Fox had Russells
name scribbled at the top of
his lineup card for a game
against UNC-Wilmington.
Did the change in the line-
up translate to Russells bat?
Not immediately.
He went for 1-for-9 in his
first two games at the spot.
But in his next three, Russell
scorched opposing defenses
to the tune of 10 hits in 13 at-
bats, including a 4-for-4 night
Tuesday to drive UNC past
N.C. A&T 10-0.
Something clicked, but
Russell cant quite pinpoint
the reason. And hes not yet
convinced its his new posi-
tion in the batting order.
Maybe Im getting good at
getting my batting gloves on
real quick in the first or some-
thing, Russell said before
cracking a smile. I guess its
kind just like any other spot
except I have to hurry to hit
for my first at-bat. But after
that, I dont think your posi-
tion really matters after your
first at-bat anyways.
Its not too much differ-
ent. So I seem to be adjusting
pretty well to it.
Fox agreed. The batting
order essentially becomes
obsolete after the first set of
at-bats. The true motivation
for his amendment to the
lineup that included moving
up both Russell and freshman
second baseman Wood Myers
to the top of the order was for
late-game situations.
We need to get those two
guys in the box as many times
as we can, Fox said. If you
get to that eighth, ninth, 10th
inning and those guys roll
around. If you score a few runs,
theyre going to get that fifth
at-bat and thats important to
us because theyre two of our
better hitters and guys whove
been most consistent for us.
Michaels done well so its
kind of sparked him a little
bit. Its hard to tell some-
times, hitting in the order and
what it does for guys. But its
helped Michael.
Senior designated hitter
Tom Zengel attributed the
overall teams offensive pro-
duction to Russells bat.
The shortshop had
four hits in UNCs 10-0
win against N.C. A&T.
He kind of sets the tempo
of the game, said Zengel,
whos also moved up in the
batting order. Hes probably
one of the most competitive
players Ive played with and
hes just, even when were not
playing like on practice days,
days when were in the weight
room, hes always giving 110
It rubs off on other people.
So he kind of sets the table
and everybody tries to play
as hard as him and match his
intensity level.
For Russell, as of late, his
job of setting the table has
relied upon getting things
And hes unsure of whether
he ll remain in the spot.
But for now, Russell
doesnt mind being the first to
take the plate each game.
Even if that means he has
to put on his batting gloves a
little quicker.

Event hosts Islam,
women discussion
By Clayton Johnson
Staff Writer
UNC professor Juliane
Hammer believes the effects
of Sept. 11 on perceptions of
Muslim women are still evi-
dent today 12 years later.
Hammer, the Kenan Rifai
Scholar of Islamic Studies, will
open the floor for discussion
on this tonight at Flyleaf Books
at her talk entitled Muslim
Women in the Media. The talk
is part of the Humanities in
Action series, put on by UNCs
Program in the Humanities
and Human Values.
Everyone will tell you
the going assumption is that
Muslim women are oppressed
and not just by patriarchal
society, but from Islam as a
religion, Hammer said. I am
interested in challenging that
in several ways.
The event will focus largely
on the visual representa-
tion of Muslim women and
the stereotypes that exist
in Western ideologies. The
topic works well with the
Humanities in Actions spring
theme of religion in America.
We picked religion this
semester because its the stuff
youre not supposed to talk
about around the (dinner)
table, said Max Owre, inter-
im director of the Program in
the Humanities.
We want to give those
issues a contentious envi-
ronment and more room to
Hammer said the issue can
be discussed in the context of
predominant Muslim female
activist Malala Yousafzai,
known for her efforts for
advancement of education
rights for Pakistani women, as
well as for surviving an assas-
sination attempt in 2012.
The issues I see with her
representation, along with
other women who assert
agency and step into more
active roles in media repre-
sentation they always get
forced to step into frames that
are already there, she said.
Hammer said the frames
she discusses are the fixed
stereotypes of Muslim women
in media, which portray them
solely as a victim or as a sign
of championing oppression.
She also said these frames
lead society to ask the question,
Do Muslim women need sav-
ing? which is what Hammer
says is a part of the problem.
Its an awareness of mul-
tiplicity, not reducing one
woman to what all (Muslim
women) have to say, she said.
They are as diverse as
everyone else, and instead
they are used to further politi-
cal objectives.
Hammer said she hopes
to use the conversation to
examine Muslim women with
a critical perspective and in a
more global context.

ity and marketing manager
at Flyleaf, said she has been
pleased with the relationship
built with the Program in the

session where attendants are
encouraged to dive into and

pus for a reason, Owre said.

Several rams roam about at Hogans Magnolia View Farm on Old N.C. 86 on Tuesday evening.
Rameses, UNCs mascot, recently became the father of three baby lambs.
Rameses had a little
lamb, and 2 more
By Graves Ganzert
Senior Writer
Rameses has once again
become more than UNCs
iconic living mascot he has
also become a father.
About 13 days ago, a living
tradition was continued with
the birth of triplet baby rams,
commonly known as lambs.
All three lambs were born
at Hogans Magnolia View
Farm located on Old N.C.
86. The Hogan family has
volunteered to take care of
the Rameses lineage since the
mascots inception.
The mascot tradition began
in 1924 when a UNC cheer-
leader thought a ram would
be a suitable mascot for the
football team in honor of the
fullback Jack Merrit who was
nicknamed the battering
ram. The first Rameses was
purchased from Texas.
Don Basnight works at the
Hogan family farm and cares
for Rameses. He said the ani-
mals are a distinct breed of ram
known for its curling horns.
The little ones were born
on a beautiful spring morning,
he said. The breed is called
the Horned Dorset, which is a
progressively rare breed that is
raised for their wool.
Basnight said the baby rams
are in good health and are full
of energy. After decades of
taking care of the mascots lin-
eage, Basnight said the farm
has grown more focused on
simply raising the rams.
We mainly treat the rams
like pets, he said. They are
sweet. Particularly when you
pet them every day and bottle
feed them when they are
young. The farm is much less
active than it once was.
Basnight said they will pick
a male ram from the newborns
that exhibit the right qualities
to become the next Rameses.
We look for a strong, hand-
some ram with the right curl
to his horns and is naturally
good around people, he said.
Rameses lives most of
his life in a barn, and for just
eight times a year he becomes
surrounded by over 20,000
people. It can be a big change.
Chris Hogan, whose family
owns the farm, helps ensure
that Rameses is prepared and
healthy for every football game.
Hogan shared his method
for preparing the current
Rameses the 19th ram titled
as the mascot since the tradi-
tion began for game days.
We wash him with Dawn
dish detergent to make his
wool look white as a snow-
ball, he said. We also paint
the horns Carolina Blue with
latex paint for every game.
Hogan said taking care of
Rameses can require a lot of
effort but is also a lot of fun.
We are glad to be able to
do it, he said. It is a great gift
we like to give the University,
and the fans love Rameses.

News Wednesday, April 9, 2014 The Daily Tar Heel 8
By Erin Davis
Staff Writer
For Holly Fryar, recalling
the exact age she was diag-
nosed with liver cancer is
tricky, but she thinks she was
about 15 when she began che-
motherapy treatment at UNC
Flash forward three years,
and Fryar found herself at
UNC for a more positive rea-
It was my dream school,
Fryar said. I always said I
wanted to be there, and it was
also convenient because my
doctors were there.
At the beginning of her
sophomore year, Fryar began
taking a new drug that left
her fatigued and unable to do
the things she normally did.
Within months, she withdrew.
I think my roommate
Sarah kind of saw it coming,
but my family and I decided it
was best that for this semes-
ter I pull out, Fryar said.
She said she hopes to
return to UNC in the fall.
Even though Fryar cant be
there physically, she said sup-
port from school peers never
fell short.
Amanda Coats, one of
Fryars friends from her
hometown of Rocky Mount,
stood in honor of Fryar at this
years Dance Marathon.
Many people wouldnt
know what (Fryar) had going
on because of her courage
and positivity day in and day
out, Coats said.
Sarah Kelly, her room-
mate, said they are amazed at
Fryars ability to touch lives
without being on campus.
Shes made an enormous
impact on my life, and I know
shes made a huge impact on
every other fellow Tar Heel
shes met here, she said. Her
strength is truly unheard of,
and I couldnt imagine life
here at Carolina without her.
After withdrawing, Fryar
and her family moved to
Georgia to continue her treat-
ment at Cancer Treatment
Centers of America and
encountered major complica-
tions from her medicine.
One day when I was home,
my parents came in and found
me unresponsive, Fryar said.
I was awake and looking at
them, but I wasnt responding.
I couldnt tell them who they
were or where I was.
Fryars ammonia levels had
spiked, causing her to lose
motor skills like speech and
coordinated movement. She
was put in a medically induced
coma for several weeks before
she left the hospital in Georgia
to go home on hospice.
Fryar recalled her father
saying he counted at least 163
people who visited over one
day and show their love.
Heavy visitation became so
recurrent that Fryars family
put a sign out front saying,
Holly is resting, family only
at this time.
Despite the major hurdles
of learning to speak and move
properly again, Fryar tri-
umphed, and in early January
2014 she went back to Georgia
to continue treatment.
However, this time there
was someone waiting for her
who thought he could change
the entire trajectory of her dis-
Student fghts cancer, hopes to return to UNC
Holly Fryar, a student who withdrew last year while undergoing treatment for her cancer, and Dr. Dan
Miller, who performed her stomach surgery. Fryar hopes she will return to UNC in the fall.
Sophomore Holly
Fryar withdrew from
UNC for the semester.
ease. She met Dr. Dan Miller,
who she instantly connected
with over their love of college
Their humorous rapport
helped Fryar stay optimistic as
Miller prepared to remove two
massive tumors in her chest
that no other doctor previ-
ously wanted to operate on.
Now, Fryar hopes to return
to UNC in the fall after the
removal of a final tumor in
her stomach. She hopes to
continue her studies as a psy-
chology major and ultimately
become a therapist.
Ive realized with my posi-
tive attitude I can rub that off
on someone else, she said. I
really just want to help peo-
ple, and thats the basis of my
everything right now. I want
to show others that theyre
not alone.

Carrboro Board of
Aldermen revisit
aordable housing
By Aaron Cranford
Staff Writer
The Carrboro Board of
Aldermen sat down Tuesday
night to specify their goals for
affordable housing.
The board met to hammer
down the details of its afford-
able housing strategy, which
will include specific objectives
for increasing affordable hous-
We are not asking for
changes in the ordinance.
We are asking the board for
goals and strategies, said
Alderman Michelle Johnson.
The first goal discussed
was to increase the number
of home ownership units that
are permanently affordable in
Johnson said they do not
have an exact number, but they
are considering three options
to figure out the number.
I think the goal in 2020
is to have at least 15 percent
of housing affordable, said
Alderman Damon Seils.
My question is: Do we
want 15 percent of all housing
in Carrboro to be affordable or
15 percent of new housing?
Seils said he wanted to
tweak the wording in the
goal about public transporta-
The way the strategy
seems to be worded now is
that it seems to imagine hous-
ing projects being built and
us taking transit to the hous-
ing projects, he said.
I want to focus a little
more on bringing housing
projects to where we already
have transit or where it is easy
to get transit.
Board member Randee
The Carrboro Board of Alder-
men addressed affordable
housing once again during
their meeting Tuesday:

June 2012: The Carrboro
Board of Aldermen formed
the Affordable Housing Task

October 2012: The Car-
rboro Planning Board hosted
a series of community

February 2013: Board
received recommendations
for preserving affordable
housing in the town.

February 2014: Task Force
gives update and presents
goals to Aldermen at their
annual planning retreat.
My question is: Do we want 15 percent of
all housing in Carrboro to be affordable or
15 percent of new housing?
Damon Seils,
Carrboro Alderman
Haven-ODonnell said she
wants to explore ways in
which the town can have a
dedicated funding source for
affordable housing.
Alderman Sammy Slade
introduced an idea to fund
the project. He said one pos-
sibility was to have a bond
referendum to pay upfront,
and then a penny tax could
pay the bond off over time.
Unless there is money
behind it, it is not going to
become real, Slade said.
Alderman Jacquelyn Gist
said she did not like the idea
of raising taxes to go toward
more affordable housing. She
said the tax rate is making the
possibility of living here unaf-
fordable for many people.
She said it would be hard
for certain segments of
the population, like older
residents, to pay an increased
If the affordable units are
going toward young couples
or young families starting out,
you can get in to a situation
where you are raising taxes on
one group that has less poten-
tial for wealth.
Slade said before making
a decision, they need to do a
cost action analysis and they
need to prioritize the revenue
they already have.
Mayor Lydia Lavelle said
the town can go through
many years without raising
taxes and that helps with
When I get asked about
our strategies for afford-
able housing, one of the first
things I say is we havent
raised our tax rates in several
years, Lavelle said.
Thats why I think I
would be leaning toward the
bond referendum because
then it is more absorbed
in to the existing budget
and paying off the bonds. I
think we all clearly see that
we need to have some kind
of money behind it to get it
Haven-ODonnell said
that they have not sketched
out any clear strategies, but
she is optimistic about the
It almost feels like we have
our arms around it.
The Board has made
a list of strategies to
meet their objectives.
On the wire: national and world news
Democrats tout paycheck
fairness to reach women
(MCT) President Barack
Obama used his executive
power and a hot-button issue
to try to stoke support from
a key election-year constitu-
ency on Tuesday, as he issued
two directives aimed at ensur-
ing federal contractors pay
women as much as men for
equal work.
Surrounding himself
with female supporters at
the White House, Obama
signed an executive order
prohibiting contractors from
retaliating against employees
who talk about how much
money they make. Advocates
say secrecy about salaries is
a major contributor to the
gap in average pay between
male and female workers
in the United States, which
the White House says leaves
women making 77 cents for
every dollar earned by men.
The president also ordered
contractors to report data to the
government showing the com-
pensation they provide their
employees by sex and race.
Democrats have long tried
and failed to pass legislation
imposing similar restrictions
and rules on most employ-
ers, and they are picking up
the effort again this week
in a push tied to Equal Pay
Day. The proposed Paycheck
Fairness Act is expected to
get its third vote in the Senate
on Wednesday, although it
is not expected to overcome
Republican opposition.
Still, Democrats see the
legislation as effective tool
to rally women, particularly
middle- and low-income work-
ing women, whose votes theyll
need to retain a majority
in the Senate in November.
Democrats typically win a
majority of female voters in
general elections, but are trying
to avoid a repeat of the 2010
midterm shellacking that saw
many of those voters either stay
home or shift parties.
As he signed the execu-
tive actions Tuesday, Obama
returned to the economic-
fairness message he honed
when he won over female vot-
ers in his own re-election two
years ago.
I dont know why you
would resist the idea that
women should be paid the
same as men, and then deny
that thats not always hap-
pening out there, the presi-
dent said. If Republicans in
Congress want to prove me
wrong, if they want to show
that they in fact do care about
women being paid the same as
men, then show me. They can
start tomorrow. They can join
us in this, the 21st century.
Republicans noted that
gender discrimination in the
workplace is already illegal,
and they argue that putting
additional rules on employ-
ers will limit womens choices
in the workplace and burden
employers. They turned to
female lawmakers to make
the case on Tuesday.

Acting Ukrainian Interior
Minister Arsen Avakov, who
coordinated the operation to
clear the protesters, offered
a more detailed picture of
the events in Kharkiv on his
Facebook page.
The administrative build-
ing changed hands twice on
Tuesday morning as separat-
ists stormed and captured
it first at about 2 a.m. local
time, Avakov said. About 200
separatists smashed windows
and broke into the building,
setting some areas of the
ground floor on fire, he said.
Shortly after 6 a.m., a spe-
cial law enforcement unit and
a Ukraine National Guard
unit moved to the east from
central Ukraine.
The brutal and lavishly
paid aggression of the pro-
Russia protesters knew no
limits, Avakov wrote. The
attackers threw stun grenades
at the National Guard soldiers,
as the police units were shot at
with traumatic weapons.
Police did not open fire
in return, according to his
report, and three policemen
were injured in the overnight
events. There were no injuries
or casualties among the sepa-
ratist activists, Avakov said.

Bike-share program is
not worth fees
Raising the student
transit fee even further to
expand a bike-share pro-
gram is ill-conceived. The
Tar Heel Bikes is used by a
relatively small segment of
the undergraduate popula-
tion that lives primarily on
South Campus. Expanding
the program shouldnt be
supported by student fees
paid by every student in
the University community
including those off-campus,
but rather by the students
that use and benefit from it.
This is the model that is
actually used in the urban
bike share programs Mr.
Jariwala references in the
article. If the cost is as
low as Jariwala states, it is
reasonable to ask students
to pay a higher program-
inscription fee or per-use
fee because the Tar Heel
Bikes program allows them
to avoid buying a more
expensive personal bike.
If the rationale is really
about helping student
to get to class and about
convenience, Student
Congress would be well
served to look at the
cost of the Robertson
bus program. Currently,
undergraduate students
and non-joint program
graduate students who
take classes at Duke pay
$5 round-trip. This cost
quickly adds up over the
course of a semester.

Anti-Israel protestors
were disrespectful
On Thursday, April 3,
Memorial Hall hosted
the Israel Philharmonic
Orchestras first performance
in Chapel Hill. Upsetting to
many concertgoers was the
presence of anti-Israel pro-
testors. I was disappointed
by the lack of coverage pro-
vided by the Daily Tar Heel
about this disturbance, as
the paper has been diligent
in reporting on related pro-
tests in the past.
The Israeli-Palestinian
conflict is among the most
nuanced in contemporary
foreign policy, and it follows
that a complex and diffi-
cult dialogue must arise in
order to solve decades-old
disagreements. Protesting
the orchestras performance
with signs that slandered
performers simply does not
advance any meaningful dis-
cussion. It is not only disin-

Don Basnight, on raising baby rams at Hogans Magnolia View Farm
othing ruins a spring
day quite like an
anti-abortion display,
complete with photos of aborted
fetuses and Holocaust victims.
The display was graphic, taste-
less and logically absurd, but
what was most offensive about
the scenario was the piece of
paper taped to the ground ask-
ing, Should this be allowed? I
hope that was a rhetorical ques-
tion, because the answer should
be unequivocally, yes.
UNC has an unfortunately
tenuous relationship with
controversial speech. The
administration gets a yellow
rating from the Foundation
for Individual Rights in
Education, as they find that
the Universitys speech code is
ambiguous and encourages
abuse and arbitrary applica-
tion. During the anti-abortion
display though, the admin-
istration acted with com-
mendable restraint, warning
students of the graphic images
and posting police officers to
monitor the situation.
Surprisingly and disheart-
eningly, students are the main
offenders. The very nature
of the question posed on the
ground whether the anti-
abortion display should be
permitted at all attached
a normative judgment where
none belonged. While the
student body was understand-
ably united in its revulsion,
the anti-abortion display was
perfectly appropriate.
The sentiment that material
like the anti-abortion display
shouldnt be allowed on cam-
pus speaks to the progressive
impulse to silence opposition
rather than engage it. This
makes sense in a perverse way:
Even the term progressivism
implies that everything else is
just backward. Lets not forget
that when former congressman
Tom Tancredo came to speak
about illegal immigration here
in 2009, progressive protest-
ers ran him off of campus after
five minutes.
Similarly this time, campus
progressive groups couldnt
leave the ridiculous display
alone, only adding to the
absurdity with drums and
interpretive dance.
Ideally, the counter-protests
would have led to a dialogue
that very clearly explained that
the word genocide refers to
the targeted killing of an entire
people, not just individual
fetuses. The anti-abortion
group would benefit by no
longer looking foolish, and the
progressives could feel good
about positively interfering in
peoples lives for once.
But back to the question on
the ground. Nearly all respon-
dents said, no, the display
shouldnt be allowed on campus.
Combined with anecdotal data
from social media, the prevail-
ing opinion was firmly against
allowing such controversial
demonstrations. At its core,
this sentiment is childish as
opposed to engaging the blatant
illogic of the display, many chose
to look to the parental figure
that is the administration to
remove the offending images.
And thats just sad.
For a school that prides itself
as a Public Ivy, the idea to ban
controversial displays is embar-
rassingly contrary to intellectual
ideals. The good news is that,
with the weather warming up
and various activists coming out
of hibernation, well have plenty
of chances to redeem ourselves.

genuous but also reckless to
suggest that direct parallels
can be drawn between the
philharmonic orchestra and
the policies of Israel.
The axiom that any cri-
tique of Israel is inherently
antisemitic is false; however,
the anti-Israel activism as
seen at Memorial Hall is
antisemitic in its suggestion
that all blame for ethnic
violence lies entirely with an
American-assisted Israeli
government that could end
all violence tomorrow if it so
chooses. This perversion of
facts regarding the Jewish
state is terribly misleading
and problematic.
The issues in Israel and
the Palestinian territories are
important. Accountability
and change from an unsus-
tainable status quo must be

orchestra and Israel does
not represent any movement

Moreover, the non-Jewish
conductor of Thursdays per-

Americans in the orchestra
would surely disagree that
their performance represent-
ed one sociopolitical agenda.

Political Science
Abortion images were
simply the truth
Regarding the recent
protest by the Center for
Bio-Ethical Reform: I am
somewhat intrigued by
some of the commentary as
reported in The Daily Tar
Heel. I believe we can draw
certain implications based
on the need to avoid those
images and the need for
counselors. We have been
told for many years that the
product of conception is
little more than a parasite
or some other foreign bodi-
ly invader much in the same
way that cancer invades
healthy cells. I wonder if
some would feel the need
to seek counseling or avoid
images of a removed tumor
or perhaps an appendix. Or
would these same individu-
als argue against showing
pictures of the piles of bod-
ies at Auschwitz because
they are disturbing?
Rather, I feel that it is from
motives of wanting to sup-
press the truth of what it
is that anti-lifers support
that this desire to obscure
and avoid originates from.
Remember, it was the Nazis
who sought to hide the
truth of what was occur-
ring at their work camps
because they knew that if
the light was shone on their
evil deeds that others would
rightfully be outraged.
Truly those protesters
were the buzzkill brigade,
as labeled by The Daily Tar
Heel Quickhits last week.

those who desire lies and
obfuscations just a little

the latest attempt

However, the junior

should have consid-
ered collaborating with
Information Technology

This would have reduced
concern about the legiti-
macy of CCm and drawn
more students to this
extremely accessible tool.
Howes has raised good

points about the flaws in
ConnectCarolina, many of
which have been echoed
for years by other students.

to show students where
classes would fit into their

to helpful websites such as
Blinkness for each course.
But most dont realize
the potential issues with

claims he hypothetically
has the capability to access
students financial infor-
mation, change grades
and graduate in a single
semester due to security
vulnerabilities in the cur-
rent ConnectCarolina
system. Others with the
same extensive knowledge
of computers and a more
malicious intent could do
real harm if these glitches
are not addressed.
After Howes sent out a
campus-wide email pub-
licizing his website last
Wednesday, ITS was bom-
barded with phone calls
and emails from concerned
students questioning the
Universitys part and the
legitimacy of the website.
Keeping the website a sep-
arate entity will hinder the
ability of ITS to perform its
everyday duties and draw
negative attention to CCm.
In reality, CCm is a safe
website that attempts to
fix security glitches in the
current system.
Howes and ITS must
now collaborate to gain
the Universitys endorse-
ment and improve the
registration process once
and for all.

fter being aban-
doned for more
than 20 years,
the property at 501 S.
Greensboro St. has finally
been given the potential for
development again.
To ensure that this does
happen, Carrboros Board
of Aldermen should amend
its current zoning laws to
include a new M-2 classifi-
cation to provide the incen-
tive needed to start devel-
opment on the property.
The proposed M-2
zoning district would be
identical to the existing
M-1 zoning, except that
it would include a set of
performance standards to
Zoning out
allow developers the oppor-
tunity to apply for addi-
tional property uses, such
as restaurants, in exchange
for major infrastructure or
other improvements.
Alderman Damon Seils
originally feared that
creating a new M-2 zon-
ing district was an overly
complicated solution
that would essentially
duplicate the M-1 zon-
ing district classification.
Nonetheless, even he now
sees the value in redevel-
oping 501 S. Greensboro
St. and the likes.
The proposed rezoning
should be viewed as an
investment in the commu-
nity that could yield ben-
efits in multiple regards.
In the case of 501 S.
Greensboro St., not only
would the town be ridding
itself of an eye sore that
is little more than wasted
space, but the lots drain-
age problems are an issue
that needs to be addressed.
The sorts of develop-
ments that would be
given this classification
would have the potential
to bring additional tax
revenue to the town as
well as new businesses
that could serve the town
well, by replacing proper-
ties in need of substantial
improvements with newly
renovated establishments.
This matter likely will
not be brought back
before the board until late
April or May, but when it
does Carrboros Board of
Aldermen would do well to
adopt an M-2 zoning dis-
trict that will yield positive
impacts for the town.
A new zoning
district could help
the town.

Student Body
President Christy
Lambden vetoed a bill that
would have put an instant
runoff voting system in
effect for future student
body president elections.
At first, this may not
appear concerning, but it is
important to note that this
is only the second bill that
Lambden vetoed during his
year-long tenure, and it was
vetoed with no time left for
the 95th Student Congress
to override it. Furthermore,
Lambden didnt personally
elaborate on his decision to
veto the bill, and he did not
answer interview requests
Third times the charm
that would have allowed
him to further voice his rea-
sonings to the student body.
Lambdens latest refusal
to interact with The Daily
Tar Heel capped off a term
where he avoided media
interaction at all costs
having other delegates
speak on his behalf or
declining to comment.
The roles of the Student
Body President are many,
but the most important of
these is to serve as a voice
for students in issues on
or off campus. In order
to successfully fulfill this
role, it is important that
student government be as
transparent as possible,
allowing external organi-
zations to criticize opera-
tions, bringing account-
ability into the equation.
Andrew Powell should
follow suit of the many stu-
dent body presidents that
came before Lambden who
directly communicated
with those advocating for
transparency for the stu-
dent body and spoke for
themselves to the media.
The instant runoff voting
bill is a worthwhile pro-
posal that has seen success-
ful implementation at Duke
and N.C. State among other
UNC peer institutions. This
bill has merit and should
be reintroduced to the 96th
Student Congress. If Powell
sees fit to veto a similar
bill in the coming year, he
should properly explain
why the absence of this sys-
tem benefits UNC.
If instant runoff voting
is not going to be imple-
mented, it should not be
the result of a technicality.
The power of the
veto should be
used responsibly.
