Officials: More Aid Possible

Financial aid officials say they are preparing a plan to help students pay for a higher-than-expected tuition increase, but there might not be enough money for everyone. UNC officials say final tuition bills will be mailed around Sept. 14, about two weeks after the state legislature approved a 9 percent across-the-board retroactive tuition increase. In-state students will receive bills for about $47 in additional tuition. Out-of-state students will have to pay an extra $460 this semester.

Ombudsman: DTH Should Review First Amendment

I think I heard a giant choking sound coming from the direction of Carroll Hall on Friday morning when the journalism school occupants read the editorial page of The Daily Tar Heel. At least that's what I hope I heard. Everyone, not just journalists, should have been gagging, choking, and downright sick to their stomachs after reading that the DTH -- the symbol of First Amendment freedom that it is -- was strongly advocating on-campus censorship.

Police Work With Local Businesses to Warn, Inform

A rash of break-ins in Chapel Hill during recent weeks has brought collaborative efforts between businesses and police to the forefront. Roughly four months ago the Chapel Hill Police Department, through its community service department and a brainstorming session headed by Police Chief Gregg Jarvies, created an e-mail listserv to update businesses of pertinent information from the police. For example, the service department will e-mail the listserv about recent crimes, customers writing bad checks and false solicitors. Art Englebardt, a crime prevention specialist with the police

Commissioners Agree To Bond Referendum

The Orange County Board of Commissioners officially decided with little discussion Tuesday night to place a $75 million bond proposal on the ballot. Most of the meeting's debate centered on an amendment that would require more specific wording of a $2 million resolution designed to assist Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools with financing the planning of a new high school. The amendment, which was eventual shot down, would have required that commissioners explicitly promise to fund a new high school. The resolution's wording now allocates the $2 million to ease high school overcrowdi

Student Congress Faces Financial Limitations

Student Congress is finding itself in even more dire financial straits than last year, likely leaving many student groups empty-handed. At this semester's first full Congress meeting Tuesday evening, Speaker Mark Townsend announced that Congress has about $11,500 to distribute to student groups this semester -- about half the amount of last semester and about a quarter of the usual amount. "We are in a serious financial crunch," Townsend said.

Maryland Runs Through UNC's `D'

COLLEGE PARK, Md. -- For Ralph Friedgen, it was a joyous beginning, a glorious start to his first year as Maryland's football coach. For John Bunting, it was a bitter disappointment, a depressing start to his first year as North Carolina's football coach. Sweet redemption for the Terrapins, a squad whose doubters were many and loud.

How Suburban White America Killed Hip Hop

How Suburban White America Killed Hip Hop Josh Baylin Hell Up In Harlem Every black kid knows it, and every white kid can't come to grips with it. Me and my evil army of privileged suburban white kids ended hip hop as it should be and facilitated the ongoing dearth of poignant lyricism and depth that characterized hip hop as "real." I don't feel I should be held personally responsible for its demise. I've been trying to embrace what I thought were the roots of hip hop and hoped to "hear" the music and not just listen.

Field Hockey Sets Record In Weekend Barrage

With time winding down against Virginia Commonwealth on Sunday, North Carolina field hockey coach Karen Shelton was stuck with a dilemma. Pass the ball around or let the youngsters play. The Tar Heels, having already tallied 10 goals through the contest's first 50 minutes at Henry Stadium, could either stop scoring or continue their offensive onslaught. "We kind of wanted to follow Anson's (Dorrance) rule where he gets to nine as quickly as possible and then passes it around," Shelton said. "But it got to the point where we were putting in kids who were playing for the first t

Martin's Offense Pays Dividends

Coming into the 2001 campaign, senior and third-team All-American Abby Martin knew she would have to take her game to an even higher level. North Carolina's leading scorer from 2000, Kristen McCann, used up her eligibility, and the team would lose midfielder Carrie Lingo and goalkeeper Amy Tran to the U.S. national field hockey team for seven games in September. "I knew during the summer that I would have to take a real leadership role," Martin said. "I knew it was time to step up my game." Step up her game on the offensive end of the field, that is.

Tar Heels Endure ASU Fouls

Appalachian State used about every aggressive tactic possible to stymie a bigger and stronger North Carolina soccer team. But the Mountaineers' 29 fouls and seven cards did not keep the Tar Heels from scoring, as UNC defeated ASU 3-0 Monday night at Fetzer Field. The game's physical nature placed a strain on the Tar Heel offense, but it was the first-half's overall effort that concerned UNC coach Elmar Bolowich. "I was not very pleased at halftime with the way we performed in the first 45 minutes," Bolowich said.
