In a separate instance, Wright
obtained a SIO,OOO business line of
credit for the organization and with
drew $9,910.27 for personal use.
The committee also charged
Wright with failing to report
$185,000 of his total $481,694 in
donations. In one quarter, he report
ed having no campaign donations
when he had received $26,000.
Deputy Attorney General Alec
Peters said Wright failed to report
at least $13,000 in donations from
nurse anesthetists at a time when
Wright was on a committee review
ing nursing legislation.
Peters said the donations
‘appeared to be held back to cover
up the donors,’ adding that the pat
tern of misreporting indicates that
Wright’s actions were politically
motivated, saying fewer donations
were reported near elections.
Peters agreed to participate in
Wednesday's preliminary hearing
after being told by Wake prosecu
tors that it wouldn't interfere with
an ongoing criminal investigation
Rep. Bill Faison, D-Orange, said
representatives being investigated
for ethical misconduct typically
resign —a step that Wright has
refused to take.
Faison expressed regret at the

guy, but it certainly sounds like ...

near-constant debate about how to
More than $84,000 of the annu
al budget goes to pay for an office
and office manager in downtown
Raleigh, and another $19,760 is
kept by the UNC system as a fee
for legal and financial services.
Almost all of the rest more
than $86,000 is discretionary.
Much of it is spent on salaries for
student officers and monthly meet
ings of ASG delegates.
But tens of thousands of dollars
are still left over each year, which
has fueled speculation that the
group could lose at least a portion
of its fee money.
System administrators have said
the fee is not on the chopping block,
at least for now. But Grasty said stu
dent officials are watching closely to
see how administrators exercise this
new level of financial oversight
“We’re just kind of worried
about how this new policy might
pan out," he said.

for free, the store has been charg
ing academic departments to order
blue books and scantrons in bulk.
Jones said professors sometimes
came into the store ands ried to take
large quantities of materials, which
made it difficult for the store to keep
enough in stock for students.
And though students are not
required to write in blue books for
their written exams, most professors
encourage students to use them.
Many students said the new fees
will be more of an inconvenience
“It’s a waste of time because you
have to go up and pay," sophomore
Caroline Choe said. “I should've
stocked up last semester."

a senior broadcast journalism
major from Akron, Ohio.
She was in charge of tracking

Curlee said that while she had
fun, she and her peers also gained a
great deal of working experience.

Gleason, who turned the mic over

After working with the students
throughout the fell, ESPNU invited
UNC students to collaborate on a
live basketball telecast.
Though Tuggle chose the stu
dents based on their ‘Carolina

had never experienced anything
quite like Wednesday night
‘You can teach concepts and
you can teach skills, but until
you’re able to put those skills into
play in a real-world environment,
we can’t teach them what it’s like
to do a game broadcast," Tuggle
“To be involved in a live nation
ally telecasted game coverage is
something that we just could not
duplicate in the school."

orchestras, the RPO has performed
internationally, but this was the
orchestra’s first performance in
Chapel Hill. Zukerman, however,
played Memorial Hall’s stage for
the second time Wednesday, having
performed as part of the hall’s grand
re-opening in 2005.
‘RPO is a serious international
orchestra, and it's one of the signs
of putting Chapel Hill on the map,"
Carter said. “They don't just come
for the money. They have certain
expectations about how they will
Carter credited Emil Kang,
UNC’s executive director for the
arts, for securing artists as inter
nationally renowned as Zukerman
and the RPO. Kang, however, had
a more humble explanation.
“We have a strong following of
orchestras on this campus." Kang
said. ‘So it is great that we can
present this level of work."
Hammersley said he thinks
there’s something special about
audiences in Chapel Hill. The
cellist experienced N.C.’s famous
southern hospitality and charm.
“People are very apprecia
tive outside of the applause," said
Hammersley. “I think that’s very
particular to this part of the world. It
makes it all the more worthwhile."

Wording of task force report
causes employee concerns
BY ANDREW RYAN COSGROVE
Personnel issues dominated the
discussion at Wednesday morning's
Employee Forum meeting.
The forum covered issues of out
sourcing and Carolina North, but
the majority of discussion came
after a report from the UNC Human
Resources Task Force, which stated
that UNC should increase efforts to
attract and retain high-quality staff.
In 2006-07, the University con
ducted a study to determine the fea
sibility of creating a separate person
nel system geared specifically toward
UNC, but the idea was rejected.
Instead the forum decided to
seek greater flexibility under the
current State Personnel Act.
UNC-system President Erskine
Bowles appointed a task force of
University representatives to exam
ine the application of the State
Personnel Act to UNC. Among
the task force's goals was to enable
UNC to meet employee needs and
improve its ability to attract and
retain high-quality employees.
Five task force members were
appointed by the UNC Staff
Assembly to represent staff views.
The task force stated that UNC
should request the authorin’ to cre
ate “substantially equivalent" human

But several forum members
expressed concern with the wording
found in the legislation draft.
“The focus must be on what sub
stantially equivalent’ actually means
and who is going to decide this," said
David Brannigan. vice chairman of
the forum. "We want proper and
Brannigan was skeptical that this
participation would occur. He said
there is an agenda, and efforts to
include staff input will be made.
The proposed legislation is simi
lar to what was proposed to the local
municipalities, said Brenda Denzler,
secretary of the Employee Forum,
noting that the forum should exam
ine whether the plan works specifi
cally for UNC employees.
Other members said that if there
is a problem, it should be fixed for
everyone, including all state employ
ees not just the University staff.
“We are a flagship university,
therefore maybe we need to show
others the road to take," forum del
egate Eszter Karvazy said.
The Office of State Personnel
must approve the proposed legisla
tion in order for it to go into effect.
