attorney, said Peppers' case was marked "dismissed." No details were available. The mediation is not open to the public, and its proceedings are not made public by the court system. Peppers' attorney did not return phone calls the day of the decision. Peppers led the Tar Heels with six sacks as a redshirt freshman last fall. After football season, he joined the basketball team as a walk-on power forward. Another Tar Heel football player, Daniel Davis, was released from the team by Coach Carl Torbush earlier in the week. Torbush gave no specific reason for Davis' dismissal, but Davis has run into a range oflegal problems in the past year. He spent three days in a Virginia jail in February after failing to appear in court for a traffic vio- lation. A month later, Davis was charged with felony credit-card fraud for using a friend's card to payoff $900 in debt. The charges were dropped after he paid the card ebt and a fine. Most recently, on June 26, Davis was found guilty for underage pos- session of a malt beverage. He was ordered to pay a fine and was suspended from the team for "academic reasons." Daniel knew he had to meet certain standards we expect of our players and his failure to do so has resulted in this action;' Torbush said. "I certainly wish him nothing but the best in his future."

Several Carolina students majoring in Environmental Studies and Science recently spent their summer vacations in Salzburg, Austria. In afive-week
program that provided them with intensive training in methods of evaluating
environmental risks, students worked inteams to examine potential health
effects from local power plant emissions. Their results - presented to
Salzburg city officials - indicated that the power plant is unlikely to pose
health risks to the surrounding population.
Through the Carolina Environmental Program, many students will study real-
life environmental problems at field sites in North Carolina and abroad, where
they will have opportunities to discover innovative solutions that encourage
both economic prosperity and environmental protection.
The Carolina Environmental Program encourages and coordinates study,
research and outreach among faculty, students and researchers in all disciplines
related to the environment. Through these partnerships, the Carolina community is working together for asustainable world.
