For The Record In the Oct. 29 elections page titled "Local Candidates to Face Off,” Chapel Hill Town Council candidate Larry Daquioag’s name was misspelled. The Oct. 29 article “Endowed Posts Draw Professors” incorrectly stated that there are 700 faculty members at UNC.There are 700 faculty members in the College of Arts and Sciences. The Oct. 30 article “Explanations Abound for High Crime Rates in the South” incorrectly stated that if the murder rate holds, it would mean a 700 percent drop. The drop would be 87.5 percent. The Oct. 30 graphic “Not a Lot of Parking" incorrectly cited several park ing lots as parking lots for on-campus students. Lots N4, S4, CD and N5 are student and employee lots and there fore might not be eliminated, and N7 is an employee lot. The Daily Tar Heel regrets the errors. m -JL- JIB iirtMtemßifiTii iHr in ..'dll bSL IB™ Wm DTH/VICTORIA FRA.NGOUUS After a chilly weekend, sophomore Jacalyn Barnes enjoys a warm Tuesday afternoon by grabbing some cotton candy in the Pit.

Construction Error Blocks Residence Hall Heat By Lizzie Breyer University Editor Students waking up on North Campus were greeted with cold showers Tuesday after a construction error knocked out hot water and heat to many residence hall rooms. Richard Marks, area director for the Olde Campus Upper Quad, sent an e mail to all students living in his area Tuesday afternoon telling them about the situation, which is related to North Campus construction. Crews are working along Raleigh Street to replace the steam line that pro vides hot water to many North Campus News STICKY SITUATION residence halls. “A lot of this is due to the construction on North Campus,” Marks said. “It’s not anything intention al; it’s just due to the construction.” Marks said he wasn’t sure of the exact nature of the construction error. But he said workers were trying to restore hot water and heat as quickly as possible. “We’re just asking the residents to bear with us and be patient,” Marks said. He said the error was not limited to the residence halls immediately sur rounding the construction. “The whole northern region was affected,” he said. “It wasn’t just the upper quad.” Rebecca Casey, assistant director of housing and residential education, said she was unaware of the lack of heat and hot water as of 4 p.m Tuesday. Casey said she would gather infor mation and address student concerns once she became aware of the situation. Anna Carlton, a sophomore who lives in Ruffin Residence Hall, said she was distressed about the lack of heat in her room. “My room has no heat, and I refuse to sleep there,” she said. “It’s cold, and my roommate is whining.” Freshman Matt Zachek, a resident of Mangum Residence Hall, said he was particularly upset the error was a result of the construction, which he said already is inconvenient. “I got in the shower, and normally it ulljp Sally (Tar MM heats up pretty fast, but it was freezing - I jumped in, felt it and jumped right back out,” Zachek said. “I got the e-mail about how they made a mistake, and it kind of pissed me off.” Marks said he hopes this kind of problem will not occur again but he said the only solution is to keep students aware and ask them to be patient. “We don’t know what will happen in the future,” he said. “We didn’t expect to have this problem now. “We can try to prepare the students by letting them know.” The University Editor can be reached at udesk@unc.edu.
