Groundhog Doesn't See
Shadow; Spring on the Way
PUNXSUTAWNEY, Pa.—Break out
the gardening gloves and fire up the char
coal grill: Spring is almost here. At least
according to Punxsutawney Phil.
The chubby groundhog, possibly the
world’s most famous forecaster, failed to
see his shadow as he was hauled from a
man-made burrow Thursday, indicating
according to legend that winter is
A crowd of about 7,000 cheered loudly
as the announcement was made under
overcast, chilly skies.
It is only the 10th or 11th time since
1887 that the groundhog has predicted an
early spring, depending on whose count
you believe. The last time was in 1990.
Middle Eastern Leaders
Seek Solutions to Impasse
CAIRO, Egypt—The leaders ofEgypt,
Israel, Jordan and the Palestinians held an
unprecedented summit Thursday to try to
revive the faltering peace process and avert
The meeting represented a dramatic
show of unity among Israel and its three
Arab peace partners. But disillusionment
with the Israel-PLO agreement runs deep,
and their ability to stem murderous attacks
by Islamic militants was uncertain at best.
The key players, Israeli Prime Minister
Yitzhak Rabin and PLO leader Yasser
Arafat, were bound to find it difficult to
make die concessions since their positions
at home are already precariously weak.
Foreign Minister Shimon Peres said he,
the other foreign ministers and leaders of
the Palestine Liberation Organization were
expected to meet next week in Washing
ton, D.C. to push the peace talks forward.

out last week. Ecuador claimed that Peru

In Their Dreams
For the third straight year, The Daily

for Duke’s student newspaper, The

The bet was that if Duke won
(chuckle, snort), the DTH would run its
masthead in hell blue and write the fol

No. 1.” But since good has once again
prevailed over evil, The Chronicle must

Foiled Again: Late Tar Heel Heroics
Send Duke to Another Crushing Loss
BY STEVE ROBBLEE
DURHAM —The hurting just keeps on coming
for the Duke Blue Devils.
“Routine win,” UNC head coach Dean Smith
joked after the Tar Heels knocked off the Blue Devils
102-100 in double overtime.
Nothing is routine for Duke this season. It seems
that in every game, Duke now 0-8 in the confer

This time Duke squandered a nine-point lead in

Student safety is an issue that never quite disap
pears from campus political discussion for one
essential reason: students think it’s important.
Indeed, a recent Daily Tar Heel scientific poll of
the student body found that improving campus safety
ranked as the No. 1 issue for students.
Perhaps the recent shootings on Henderson Street
contributed to this phenomenon, or perhaps students care
about safety because they know one of the 358 victims of
campus crime in 1993. Or it could be that students have
been exposed to statistics about the increase in violent
crime in Chapel Hill and across the nation.
In 1993, the most recent year for which statistics are
available, there were more forcible sex offenses, aggra
vated assaults, and drag and weapons violations reported
at UNC than in 1992. At the same time, there were
substantial decreases in other, less violent, forms of crime
such as burglary and motor vehicle theft.
Students say they are worried by these figures, and they
don’t even include crimes against students that occurred
But what can be done? As students consider candidate
proposals to increase safety, it could be useful to know
what steps the University has already taken.
Crime on Cimpui
Prevention comes in many forms on a college campus.
It can mean education, emergency call boxes, well-lit
paths and escort services. UNC has all of these, but

This game wasn't like all those others, though.
This was Duke and North Carolina. The game.

“That is exactly how Kev lived his short-lived life,” said Rob
Tobin, best friend and teammate of slain lacrosse player Kevin
Almost 600 friends, family members, and UNC athletes and
administrators came to Skipper B owles Hall in Koury Natatorium
Thursday night to reminisce about the sophomore, who was laid
to rest Tuesday in Annapolis, Md.
The Riva, Md., native was shot dead
by a gunman Jan. 26 as he rode his bike
on Henderson Street. He was on his
way to practice.
Reichardt’s teammates and coach
remembered him as a student, a player and a friend.
“This week, we all shed tears for the loss of our Kevin,” said
Steve Schreiber, a UNC defenseman. “We must remember Kevin
and be proud of all he has accomplished. He was a great athlete.
He was a great student. But above all, he was a great person.”
Tobin said: “He’d say, ‘What’s up, man,’ and flash that smile
of perfection. That was Kev: laid back, soft-spoken, a ball of joy
Tobin told how Reichardt would take
on new challenges and succeed.
“Instead of being content, he would
continue to set goals and work even harder
toward the tougher finishline,” said Tobin,
who attended St. Mary’s High School with
Reichardt. “You see, the sky was the limit
for Kev. There was no stopping him.”
The mood at the memorial was mostly
somber, but lacrosse head coach Dave
Klarmann, known for his wit, sparked the
only laughter of the hourlong service.
Klarmann detailed a conversation he
had last year with Reichardt concerning
lacrosse, a fierce sport.
“I told him that he was too well-adjusted, too stable,” he said.
“I thought his parents loved him too much. If he wanted to be
more effective at this level, he would have to become a little
nastier, a little meaner, a little tougher.”
Klarmann said he could never get Reichardt, a midfielder on
the team, to leam how to cheat on a faceoff. The sixth-year head
coach also praised Reichardt for his continued improvement on
the field as a defender.
But Klarmann said Reichardt was more than just an athlete.
“In Kev’s short time with us, he brought us nothing but joy,
courage, hope, passion, and most importantly —and now most
ironically —a great respect for his fellow man,” he said.
“His worth to mankind exceeds any event on any athletic field.
His influence transcends the mundane. He’s with us in all things.”
Reichardt, a business major, was named to the dean’s list twice
as well as to the 1994 ACC Honor Roll. He also served on the
Athletic Director’s Student Advisory Council.
Klarmann said, “His desire to play was matched by his deter
mination in succeeding in the classroom.”
Schreiber said Reichardt’s ability to set and achieve goals was
one of his greatest assets.
