The UNC women's soccer team celebrates their 2000 NCAA Women's College Cup win
against the UCLA Bruins at the Spartan Stadium in San Jose on Sunday.
Students participated in a
walk, listened to speakers
and participated in testing
for HIV for World AIDS Day.
By Katy Dillard
A line of more than 200 students
stretched from the Bell Tower down
South Road on Friday afternoon as stu
dents gathered to march in support of
AIDS awareness and prevention.
The event recognized World AIDS
Day with a 1 1/2-mile walk beginning at
the Bell Tower and ending at Polk Place.
“The fact that there are 200 to 300
people (here) today shows that there is
passion and concern for this issue,” said
Marcie Fisher, chairwoman of the plan
ning committee and high-risk program
specialist with the UNC Center for
Healthy Student Behaviors.
This third annual march was the finale
of a week of events, including an AIDS
discussion session and walk-in HIV test
ing. “I think there is a typical miscon
ception that (HIV and AIDS) doesn’t
happen here - that it doesn’t happen on
college campuses,” Fisher said. “What
we hope happened through this week of
education is some real, concrete events
that help dispel these myths.”
Although several student groups were
represented at the march, many people
came in small groups or as individuals
with more personal callings to support
“I feel invested in making sure this

Community's Holiday Parade
Combines Tradition, Diversity

Marching bands, cattle and a plethora of anders
characterized Saturday’s Chapel Hill-Carrboro
Families lined Franklin Street on Saturday,
watching more than 100 parade units go by.
Some observers make the parade, which dates
back to 1948, an annual tradition, such as Chapel
Hill resident Mary Jane Young. “We love the
parades; we come every year,” Young said.
A festive atmosphere was present in the
Christmas sweaters, bells and fuzzy brown ander
headpieces bystanders wore. As more floats and par
ticipants passed by, the crowd’s enthusiasm swelled.

“It’s a habit I have to break.”

When a bill from his Gap credit card was
sent to his home instead of his residence hall
room, his mother wasn’t all that pleased. “I
caught a little heat for that,” he said.
But while balancing expenses takes an
extra effort, Powell also agrees that adjust

With an academic course load filled with

The parade included marching bands from both

local Boy and Girl Scouts.
Two Texas longhorn steers made their parade
debut, drawing mixed reviews from the crowd.
Religious groups also were present, bringing their
messages of peace and holiday spirit. Orange United

of little angels and a train of wise men and papier

walked quietly proclaiming truthfulness, benevo

Time Runs Short
As Gore Exhausts
"This is far from over" resounds from both
camps as Dick Cheney pushes for closure
and Al Gore awaits decisions on recounts.
The Associated Press
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - Al Gore’s bid to overturn George
W. Bush’s certified Florida victory sped up Sunday when a
judge capped the second day of the historic trial by hearing
closing arguments into the night.
Leon County Circuit Judge N. Sanders
Sauls surprised lawyers by ordering a (4jHflJiiU?Kf
sprint to the finish in the case, which the
Democrats complained had been dragging over two days of
Minutes after the judge’s announcement, Gore lawyer
David Boies said in closing that the Gore election contest was
a “protest action” because the Democrats believe hundreds of
legitimate votes for Gore were missed.
“The court has heard witnesses ...
who have told the court that a manual
recount is the only way to be sure that
certain contested ballots are counted,”
said Boies, who grew to fame arguing on
behalf of the U.S. government for the
breakup of Microsoft Corp.
Bush lawyer Barry Richard countered
that no more recounts should be ordered
by the court because the Constitution
“has entrusted the Legislature to deter
mine when, if ever, there should be a
“There is no right by the state or fed
eral constitutions to a manual recount -
ever,” Richard said.
“We have not one shred of evidence
in this case of any voting problems with
any voting machines in any precinct,” Richard added.
Gore’s Florida election contest asks for a hand recount of
14,000 disputed ballots in Miami-Dade and Palm Beach coun
ties, votes the Democrats believe would help Gore overcome
Bush’s 537-vote lead, certified last
Sunday by Secretary of State Katherine
Harris after the Florida Supreme Court
extended a deadline.
Joseph Klock, a lawyer for Harris,
said no recount should be ordered
because the Legislature never intended
“for one lone circuit court judge in
Tallahassee to look through all of the bal
lots” and decide the next president
“What is a poor judge to do?” Klock
Jerry Madigan, a lawyer for a voter,
called it absurd for Gore to seek to count
only Democratic counties.
“Gore wants you to look at this in a
vacuum," he said.
The closing arguments followed two
days of testimony in a case that Democrats have said may rep
resent their best chance of getting Gore to the White House by
winning Florida’s crucial 25 electoral votes.
Both sides promised appeals to the Florida Supreme Court,
whose seven members are Democratic appointees, if Gore and
Bush came out the loser.
“Whatever happens both sides know this is going to end up
in the Florida Supreme Court,” Gore said on “60 Minutes” on
“It’s not a recount. We want a first count."
