4 THE CARSUitA TIKES-SATURDAY, KAY 1. 1S82 Mrs. Scar6qro..6efsaucffs;of Cbmmuniiy A local scholar, educator ind humanitarian was) honored last Friday during a banquet at W.G. Pear son Cafeteria on the campus of North Carolina Central University v; 4 . . ;. ! ,. ' ' ' Aritong guests paying tribute to Mrs. Gydle Fullwood Scarborough were Governor Jim Hunt, ahd his assistant. Be Rnffin, and Mayor Charles Markham. 'Z. ? L'"1- ' ' .- -' ' An Opelika; Alabama native, Mrs. Scarborough moved to Durham in the early 1900's, to teach science and history at Hillside High School. She met and later married John CJarence Scar-i borough; Sr., a prominent funeral director. ' ' In 1925, they started Scarborough Nursery School, Inc., first using the old Lincoln Hospital! facilities,'; where for over fifty years an estimated 10,000 children have received day care. t : Other groups and organizations recognizing the special efforts of Mrs. Scarborough, especially In the areas of child care and education included Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, N.C Office of Child Daycare Licensing Board, United Way of Durham, Durham Day Care Council," Durham County, Department of Social Services, among others. ' Under the direction of Mrs. Scarborough, the' nursery school today occupies three state licensee' facilities, accommodating 162 children, including i. first grade which is accepted by the State Depart-! ment of Public Instruction. Hayil. 'backed by most of Durham's black leaders, that the! area would be redeveloped, Hayti has remained a wasteland of overgrown real estate. The area, about; 54 acres of what could be considered prime city pro-i. party, is bounded roughly by Fayetteville, Roxboro and Pettigrew streets, split "by the East-West Ex-j; pressway, and just across the tracks fromj downtown. . j Havti is a real sore spot with many Durham, blacks because they believe the black community j 1 ' a a 1a.-. . lmm 1. "was roDoea or me ncan oi us cununumiv. J Therefore, earlier this year when the issue of a idowntown civic center and possibly a hotel and of fice building complex surfaced as the centerpiece, of downtown revitalization, several black political leaders quickly tossed the gauntlet. , Led for the most part by persons close to the! Durham Committee', the traditional voice ofj Durham's black politics, the leaders said that black j voters would withhold support of the $10.5 million j. hnnH rf(rpnHiim for the civic center unless the citVi guaranteed, among other things, at least the follow- have supported you, and we have always come up; ing: . 1. - ; ftQUtl- ; ' A Durham City Council approved8 Hayti, '' redevelopment plan, one thatrwould restore the area to its prominent place as the center of black F -economics. ,' ' 1 ' ; Guarantees that black contractors and other business operators would get a significant part of 1 the money that I would be spent to build the downtown complex.

First, Dr. Lavonia Allison, who works on political affairs for the Durham Committee, gave a gentle but firm introduction to the idea that blacks are tired of taking "white peoples' word that these thino will wnrlr nut tn nnr hmffit. In the natf. we) v. :M F.V. ALLISON, MRS. SCARBOROUGH, H.M. MICHAUX, JR.: a cs ess j ; s; ss 5 ; 'on the short end of the stick.'" " Then Lovett said firmly, more clearly drawing the lines of the challenge, that the. two projects must city's original proposal called for housing exclusive-: ly. ' , f This proposal passed the finance committee 4-3; move forward together, that there can "be no civic V; with Hunt, who opposes, the alternative proposal, x) 0 w Q r j t'-'fd y L ,W pJK Bvs m w M., m i Mother Of The Year Drive The Durham Branch of the NAACP will hold its Mother of the Year drawing and crowning Friday, April. 30, at Union Baptist Church, 904 North Roxboro Street, at 7 p.m. Churches all over the city wilt have representatives competing in this contest. , ' Mothers in the contest are (seated I-t): Mrs. Dorothy Graham of Russell Memorial CM E Church; Mrs. Battle Brody'of Oak Grove Baptist Church; Mrs., lola Goss of St. John Baptist ChurchvMrsva Bnum of Pilgrim Baptist Church; (standing l-r): Mrs Lizzie Bute of (yleS Temple AME Zion Church; Ms. Alice Wilson, chairman of the drive; Mrs; Ruth Rice of Mount Calvary United Church of Christ; Mrs. Jo Anne Jones of Union Baptist Church; Mrs. 4Kosa Johnson of Peace Missionary Baptist Church; and Mrs. Sarah Bell-Lucas of Covenant Presbyterian Church. r f , , The public is invited to come and share in this event. center as far as the black community is concerned, unless there is a redeveloped Hayti." Finally, Henderson, rising to the occasion, : delivered a stinging rebuke of what he called "a history of deceit and betrayal",, and capped the j challenge, saying definitively that the black com munity would not support the civic center unless it ' had some formal assurances 6n Hayti. But over the past two months, several significant things have occurred. - : First the city administration proposed that $1.5, million of the bond referendum be earmarked for Hayti to pay for site preparations and to build a public safety station in the area. This move seemed to imply that the destiny of Hayti's redevelopment would be in the hands of black voters. Then the City council switched things around, saying rather that the city manager can propose in his coming budget request that $1.5 million in federal revenue sharing money be allocated for. Hayti. This put the ball back in the black leaders', laps, implying that if the civic center bond issue passes, because of strong black voter support, then 'the council would put up the Hayti money. Black leaders have been quietly huddling around the ball ever since. Their new "positions" surfaced j this week following a scries of interviews. . Shadowing the issue of Hayti redevelopment is the question of how should it be rebuilt. City of ficials have proposed a redevelopment scheme that features new housing, probably medium density condominiums, townhouses and triplexes, in a 25-acre tract that is the largest chunk of land in the Hayti area. The Hayti Development Corporation, a spin-off ! group from a Durham Committee sub-committee, .proposes to "return Hayti to the black community", by making economic development the centerpiece of its redevelopment, particularly to. insure that some of the 100 black owned businesses displaced years ago by urban renewal can return to the area and hopefully succeed. Last week, HDC and the city administration) unveiled a joint proposal that incorporates several features of the first two. For example, the new pro-i posal calls for a commercial and officeOrte about! 200 feet deep along the west entPbf the largU 25-acre tract, fronting on Fayetteville Street, where the and another opponent not voting because they had!' left to keep previous commitments. , !: i This close vote clearly indicates that the new pro-1 ' I posal will face a rough time before the whole couh- :cil. V' -:V'i '' - '" ' ; When the issue comes up there, the council will i have three Hayti redevelopment proposals before it: j the original city administration concept, the ,VftKlllCU A JL-r V VWUVVLL, tuu HIV JVIUUI UVTVIUUVU " Wtemntive: The council cntr take nne if five nn. V tions: approve' either one of the three proposals, develop its own proposal from the three and ap- ' prove it, or send the whole issue back to the draw-i ling board. 1 " There is no way to speculate on decision, mostly : because the discussion has been so confusing. , For example: two councilmen, Kim Griffin ahd Hunt, say that according to a developer who is in terested in developing housing in the 25-acre tract, a r commercial zone won't work. . But Leon Bridges of the Baltimore, Maryland ar chitectural firm, Leon Bridges Company, represen-. ting Housing Innovation, Inc., the developer in ! question, housing and commercial can work, together, but that, the proposed commercial strip! would,4end to generate levels of traffic that would I make it more difficult to design compatible hous-f ing. ' , ' ; v '!;. But it seems that the real issue regarding this,; 25-acre tract is that city planners see it as vital to the downtown revitalization concept, because inner city r housing is an important part of any effort to resur rect a downtown area. rnwrFMTPATFn ff-" DEODORIZER IXmmJj S 80 effective ,. . that 2 DROPS DEODORIZE A SKUNK!
