schools consistently show UNC to
be on the low end of tuition for
both in- and out-of-state, and for
both undergraduate and graduate
programs. That is an accomplish
ment that we should all be proud
of as we strive to uphold our consti
tutional mandate to provide acces
sible higher education.
However, running a first-rate
university takes money, and money
lost from budget cuts and reduc
tions in grants and gifts must be
made up from another source.
Unfortunately for us, this often
takes the form of tuition hikes.
The necessity of an increase in
tuition is undeniable.
UNC is not competitive with our
peer institutions in paying teach
ing assistant stipends and we are
losing faculty to competing uni
versities that offer higher salaries.
Increasing TA stipends and fac
ulty salaries, along with reducing
the faculty-to-student ratio in the
classroom, are our highest pri
orities. More than that, they are
essential as a matter of maintain
ing our excellence.

Many health care specialties
require practitioners to take cur
rent classes in order to remain
certified. Bringing those courses
out into different regions relieves
much of the burden for local health
workers, particularly those in deep
ly rural areas of the state.
“I think there would be far fewer
practitioners out there, if not for
the AHEC system,” said Stephen
Willis, executive director of the
eastern region office. “That holds
true in any relatively underserved
area of the state.”
From hospitals and urgent care
clinics to nursing homes and pre
schools, health workers can contact
an AHEC office to arrange a formal
workshop or a community visit by
a faculty expert.
Having that service available
encourages health professionals to
take on jobs in more remote areas,
“I believe that it makes it much
easier for them to both take (those
jobs) and keep them,” he said. “To
feel like both living and practicing
in a rural area is viable.”
A priority is placed on bringing
experts into individual communities,
and not just to the regional centers
where AHEC offices are based.
Often UNC faculty members
can take advantage of the Medical
Air Operations program, based
at the Horace Williams airport in

There are many competing phi

task force, the Trustees and the

as to whether the burden of tuition

These competing perspectives are
seen in arguing whether increases
should be closer between in- and

so that every student and every

Remaining are the incredibly
high expectations this duo was
burdened with when they, along
with new Minnesota Timberwolves
guard Rashad McCants, enrolled
at UNC in 2002.
Fans now are calling for Felton
and May to apply the same saving
grace that helped resurrect the once
diminishing Tar Heel basketball pro
gram to the inexperienced Bobcats.
“I don’t feel any pressure at
all,” May says. “The only thing me
and Ray put on ourselves is to go
out and perform everyday to the
best of our abilities. I don’t think
it’s any pressure to play up to or
exceed our own expectations.
“Some people’s expectations may
not be realistic, but we know as long
as we get better every day and give
the fans what they want, which is
playing quality basketball night in
and night out, then we’ll be fine.”
In the NBA summer league at the
Rocky Mountain Revue in Utah, the
chemistry that Felton and May have
built together was on full display.
While Felton directed the offen
sive traffic with 13.2 points and 5.2
assists in five games, May domi
nated in the paint. The six-foot
nine forward averaged 17.3 points
and 9.2 rebounds, including three

honors with Felton.
But May is quick to put his show
ing into perspective, as he has yet
to taste the total NBA experience.!
“Things are moving fairly
quickly and well so far, but I don’t
want to get too overconfident with
my summer league performance
because I wasn’t playing against
everyday NBA competition,” May
says. “But the transition so far has
been pretty much an even keel.”
Felton agrees with his teammate
and quickly has seen the advantag
es of playing alongside May again.
“It feels good to have Sean here,”
Felton says. “It’s good for me because
I’m the point guard and I have a guy
on the court where if I pass him the
ball, I know he can score.”
And May isn’t the only player
who is familiar with Felton. Former
UNC forward Jason Capel recently
signed with the Bobcats in hopes of
finally making an NBA roster after
graduating in 2002.
“I know how they play and they
know how I play,” Capel says. “The
fact that we all played at Carolina,
it does a lot They’re going to bring
more fans out to the arena and be
more recognized in the community.
The biggest thing is people know us
and we know each other and it makes
for a better working environment”
But while Capel is fairly familiar
with the NBA atmosphere, May and
Felton remain wet behind the ears.
And they’ve got a coach in Bemie
Bickerstaff who is not afraid to tell
them just that, as he showed when
discussing Felton’s performance at
“He was okay, but he was one of
those bricklayers that we had out
there also,” Bickerstaff said. “But
in terms of basketball intelligence,
he’s very good.”
With every player possessing an
accomplished college basketball
background and the subsequent
ability to step into a major role, it is
essential for a player to have a high
learning curve if he wants to make
a name for himself in the league.
“The thing with the NBA, they
teach you and they let you play,”
May says. “With college, it’s all
about teaching, and it can get
dragged on. With the NBA, you
have more freedom, so practice
goes a little smoother, but you’ve
got to pick up things real quickly.”
The learning curves of the UNC
twosome will be tested early. May is
recovering from arthroscopic sur
gery to remove damaged cartilage
from his right knee and slowly is
working his way into full practice.
Meanwhile, Felton, who most like
ly will serve as backup for incumbent
point guard Brevin Knight, quickly
must grasp anew offense with the
start of the regular season looming
less than a month away.
Add to this the hoopla already
surrounding the second arrival of
these local players and it might
appear that Felton and May are
being set up for failure.
But heeding the simple advice of
a highly touted player who knows
all about the microscope created
by an NCAA championship and
being highly drafted just might be
the simple recipe for success.
“I just ignored all the distractions
and hype,” says Bobcat forward.
Okafor, a former star and national
champion at Connecticut. “They
both are good players who have alot
of potential for success in this league,
so I’m not worried about them and
neither should anybody else.”
