Chapel Hill Police
Ready for Revelers
By David Velez
With the much-anticipated rematch
of the two top teams in the ACC only
two days away, local law enforcement
officials are preparing for the postgame
celebrations on Franklin Street.
After North Carolina’s victory over
Duke on Feb. 1, the 100 block of
Franklin Street was swamped with UNC
fans, who started unauthorized bonfires
and participated in vandalism, forcing
officials to review their procedures for
handling the revelers this weekend.
During the last celebration, an over
turned car prompted questions about
whether more can be done to ensure
safety. Some feel that there should be an
increase in safety precautions by stu
dents and officials, but the Chapel Hill
police and fire departments plan to uti
lize the same basic game plan they have
in the past. “There are no major
changes, but we have tweaked our pro
tocol since the last game,” Chapel Hill
Police Chief Greggjarvies said.
This time, 35 officers will be strategi
cally positioned on Franklin Street,
Jarvies said. That is an increase from the
last Duke game, when 25 officers were
on hand. Officers will not have any dras
tic changes to their assignments from last
time, but will be more spread out to
allow them to canvas a larger area.
Deputy File Chief Robert Bosworth
said the fire department also will contin
ue to follow plans it used for the last Duke
game. “Our plans for Sunday will be the
same as they were last time,” he said.
Bosworth said there will be two teams
Board Permits Greater
Waste Storage for CP&L
By Phil Perry
Assistant City Editor
A local nuclear power plant has been
given the green fight to go forward with
expansion of waste storage, marking
what could be the final step in a two
year batde between Orange County and
Carolina Power & Light Cos.
The Atomic Safety and Licensing
Board handed down a ruling Thursday
that cleared the way for CP&L to use
two additional waste storage pools at its
Shearon Harris Nuclear Power Plant.
A Feb. 14 decision by the full five
member panel of the Nuclear
Regulatory Commission halted the
opening of two nuclear waste storage
pools at the plant. CP&L had been
given the go-ahead by the NRC’s Office
of Nuclear Reactor Regulation to begin
expansion plans, but the full commis
sion wanted the staff to answer lingering
questions that arose from the expansion.
Thursday’s ruling indicated that these
questions have been answered.
Excellence is not a singular act, but a habit You are what you repeatedly do.
on foot with fire extinguishers to help
make sure any bonfires do not get out of
control. Another team on bikes will be
there if anyone needs first-aid and also will
have small extinguishers for emergencies.
A large truck will be near East
Franklin and Henderson streets just in
case any of the bonfires get out of hand,
Jarvies said cars parked on Franklin
Street will not be towed, even though fans
flipped a car during the last celebration.
Because the game will be played on
Sunday afternoon, the traffic on
Franklin Street will be heavier than
usual, he said. Many of the churches in
the area need extra parking spaces so
their members will be able to attend ser
vices. The large number of can would
make it hard to tow them from the area,
“You reach a threshold where if you
decide to tow cars, you will have to uti
lize 135 people rather than the 35 that
will be used,” he said.
Jarvies said the most important com
ponent for a safer celebration is that the
fans police themselves and celebrate
Bosworth said he did not think the
UNC student body was very proud of
its behavior the last time and that he
fully expects the celebration to be much
more controlled this time than last time.
“When Carolina wins, I have confi
dence that the fans will behave, and the
night will be a celebration like it is sup
posed to be.”

The Orange County Commissioners
say a disaster at the plant, which will have
the capacity to store the most nuclear
waste in the country, could affect a 50-mile
radius, which includes Orange County.
But CP&L spokesman Mike Hughes
said the ruling should bring to a close
the battle over whether the plant could
open the pools. “What’s important here
is that two separate arms (the ASLB and
the NRC staff) independently reached
the same conclusion,” he said. “It again
has confirmed the plan we proposed in
1998 is safe and responsible.”
Hughes said the third pool should be
fully operational by the middle of this
year. He also said the fourth pool would
not be needed until 2016 but that he
hoped the federal government will have
opened another repository by that time.
But N.C. Waste Awareness and
Reduction Network Director Jim
Warren said the ruling disregarded
Orange County’s safety concerns.

BCC Features Malcolm X's Daughter
By Katy Nelson
About 250 people came out to the
School of Social Work on Thursday
night to hear about the legacy of
Malcolm X through his daughter, and
many audience members left with tears
in their eyes and inspired to think more
about giving back to the community.
Atallah Shabazz, the eldest daughter
of civil rights leaders Betty Shabazz and
Malcolm X, spoke of her own fife as an
activist, writer and producer, as well as
of her parents’ contributions.
Shabazz weaved the themes of family
and personal legacies, self-respect and the
value of community as she delivered the

Williams Excels in Darker Shade of Blue
Duke guard Jason Williams
spurned UNC in the recruiting
process and is currently
second in the ACC in scoring.
By Will Kimmev
Imagine Jason Williams breaking
down his defender and kicking the ball
out to Joseph Forte, who gracefully
swishes a 3-pointer.
The ACC’s best point man feeding
the league’s top point producer. Two of
the nation’s best guards playing together.
It almost happened.

probably would have ended up at
Carolina,” Duke forward Shane Battier

Former North Carolina coach Bill
Guthridge recruited Williams out of St.
Joseph’s High School in Plainfield, NJ.
But Guthridge already had a point man in
Ed Cota and a backup in Ronald Curry.
As much as Guthridge liked
Williams, the only thing the UNC coach
could offer the young man was some
advice: Don’t go anywhere in the ACC,
“That’s when I decided to go to
Duke,” said Williams, now a sophomore.
Plus, Williams added, “I’ve never
been a big fan of baby blue. It’s just not
me. I’m a darker blue type of guy.”
Williams will be wearing his favorite
shade of blue Sunday afternoon as he
leads No. 2 Duke into the Smith Center
against No. 4 North Carolina.
He torched the Tar Heels for 32
points, making a half-dozen 3-pointers in

She encouraged the audience to learn
about themselves and act upon it.
“Freedom is being able to find the oudet
for your honesty,” Shabazz said.
In speaking of her father’s assassina
tion in 1966 and her mother’s 1997 death,
Shabazz said, “We really have to value
one’s existence while they are present”
When an audience member asked
what she thought her father would be like
today had he not been killed, Shabazz
said her father might have emerged from
the civil rights movement like South
African leader Nelson Mandela.
She shared humorous anecdotes from
the personal lives of her father and moth

For Duke, UNC
Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski has several
options for his lineup without Carlos Boozer
for Sunday's game against North Carolina.
By T. Nolan Hayes
The players say it every time.
North Carolina and Duke? Throw out the records -this is war.
Ignore how well or poorly we’ve been playing before this point. None
of it will matter once tipoff happens.
Yeah, yeah, yeah. Whatever.
But this time all of that talk is more than just cliche.
The second-ranked Blue Devils (25-4, 12-3 in the ACC)
will be without starring center Carlos Boozer, who has an
injured foot, when they visit Chapel Hill on Sunday at 3:30
p.m. for a showdown with No. 4 UNC (23-4,13-2).
And no one is sure what to expect.
Will Duke, the NCAA’s most prolific 3-point shooting team
(10.6 per game), attempt even more long-range bombs than
usual? Will the Blue Devils use three or four guards at one
time and play 6-foot-8 Shane Battier at center? Can Duke
reserves Casey Sanders and Matt Christensen play big min
utes without hurting the team?
“I don’t know, to be honest with you,” UNC forwardjason
Capel said. “I think Duke’s going to play their game. They’ll
still shoot a lot of 3s, be very aggressive on defense, and we
don’t expect anything different. It’s a big loss, but I think
they’re going to step up and play well.”
The stakes are high enough - that much is certain. The Blue
Devils can claim a share of the ACC regular-season title if they
knock off UNC. The two teams also are still battling for the top
seed in the East Region for the NCAA tournament
Boozer won’t return until NCAAs after fracturing the third
metatarsal in his right foot in Duke’s 91-80 loss to Maryland
on Tuesday night. Doctors will re-evaluate him in two weeks,
but Boozer could be out of action for three or more weeks,
Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski said Thursday.
The Blue Devils have loads of talent but lack depth, espe
cially up front That’s what makes Boozer’s absence so critical.
See MEN'S BASKETBALL, Page 4
But Williams struggled in his chances
against the Tar Heels as a freshman. He
averaged 11.0 points on 7-for-27 shoot
ing and had a hard time containing
Cota, UNC’s senior point guard.
“It let me know there’s still a lot of
things I need to work on to become the
player I want to be,” Williams said.
So he began preparing for this season
a week after Florida eliminated Duke
from last year’s NCAA tournament.
Williams started running, shooting,
watching tape, working out - doing
everything he could to enhance his game.
“His talent and natural ability have
always been there,” said Steve
Wojciechowski, a Duke assistant coach
and former point guard. “Although he
has gotten in better shape and has
improved as a shooter, his ability to
think on the floor has gotten better and
can continue to get better.”

parents, describing her father as a “lover
filled with compassion.”
Shabazz related how a young woman
at another lecture once told her she
wished Malcolm X was her own father.
Shabazz said she was touched but
hoped the young woman would search
for meaning in her own father’s pres
ence. “Indeed my father was a glorious
man to have as a daddy,” she said. “But
relish (your father) until you can’t”
Shabazz encouraged the audience to
think about the greater picture of legacy.
“Do not think that this moment is sin
gularly about you. It is anointed.”

The results have been tangible.
Williams has increased his scoring
average from 14.5 points to 20.7, sec
ond in the ACC to Forte’s 22.0. And
he’s doing it with more consistent
shooting, raising his field goal per
centage to .489, 70 points better than
in his rookie campaign.
He hit two key 3-pointers and scored
eight points in 13 seconds as Duke ral
lied from 10 down with less than a
minute to go, forcing overtime at
Maryland on Jan. 27. The Blue Devils
eventually won 98-96.
Williams said he would not have
taken those pivotal 3s a year ago.
“I think he’s a very courageous play
er," Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski said.
“He’s stepped up big.”
Williams has become the go-to guy
