become more conscious of the way our
government runs,” Mayer said.
“They’ve become aware of the things
they’ve taken for granted.”
But many residents interviewed during
Tuesday’s election stressed the importance
of participation in local government.
Dale Renguette, who works at the
Newman Catholic Student Center, said
he’s been voting in Chapel Hill munic
ipal elections for 30 years.
“(Voting) is not going to change the
world,” Renguette said. “But I think it
can do something to change the town.”
Joe Herzenberg, a former member of
the Chapel Hill Town Council, said he is
“an addicted voter” and that he couldn’t
recall ever missing an election.
“(Voting) is what our country’s all
about,” Herzenberg said.
But Herzenberg said that in many
years of participating in local elections,
he has been frustrated by a lack of stu
dent votes. He said that if every resident
of Teague Residence Hall voted for one
candidate, that candidate would proba

Shirley Ray, who helped man the
voting booths at Holy Trinity Lutheran
Church in Chapel Hill, also said she had
seen few students visiting the poll site.
“Mostly senior citizens (came and
voted),” said “Students aren’t as inter
ested in this kind of election.”
But George Jackson, an epidemiolo
gy graduate student, said he cast his bal
lot because he felt a responsibility to
contribute to local government.
“It’s an obligation for people in a
democracy to vote,”Jackson said.
Chapel Hill resident Jeannette Tolley
volunteered to regulate voting at Fetzer
Gym. Tolley, who has worked the poll
site since 1974, also emphasized that res
idents have a responsibility to vote.
“If people don’t like the government,
then they’re responsible for it,” Tolley
said. “If you don’t vote, you can’t com
plain about what you get.”
Most voters said that they considered
the option to vote a privilege.
“I don’t understand why people don’t
vote,” said Betty Bell, a local artist.
“We’re lucky to have a democracy
where we get the chance.”

He was inaugurated as the president
of Chile in March 2000 and has main

while he serves as president.
Student Body Vice President Rudy
Kleysteuber, who is a Chilean citizen,
said he was touched by the president’s
appearance at UNC.
“Ricardo Lagos is an amazing man,”
Kleysteuber said. “But what is truly
touching to me is that not only is he an
inspirational leader in Chile, but he is
part of the Carolina family.”

Franklin Roye, Kappa Psi alumni chair
man, said that after raising most of the
money, the fraternity wanted to take out
a loan but was unable to because of a
new University policy. Roye said they
finally were able to acquire the money
because several alumni and two brothers
co-signed on a loan.
Overall, most fraternity presidents
said that despite the cost, the safety
offered by the new sprinklers is worth
the monetary price. “It is a fair require
ment, but it is difficult to raise money,
especially now,” Hosemann said. “It is
definitely for a worthy cause, though.”

Woman Robbed on Franklin Street
Bv Jon Dougherty
Jane Meads should have been having
a great Friday morning.
Meads, 54, had just bought anew
house and was on her way to Carrboro
to sell another.
But on Friday she was robbed of an
unspecified amount of money while in
her car on Franklin Street.
“I wasn’t really in criminal-chasing
clothes,” said Meads, a Chapel Hill res
“I was wearing a skirt and stockings,
carrying briefcases and contracts.”
Meads, a UNC graduate, said she was
pulling away from the curb in her
Chrysler Sebring convertible, which had
been parked outside of Miami Subs,
when she collided with some handtrucks
that were in the road.
Some passers-by attempted to help
Meads by moving the equipment and
then giving her directions as she once
