The Chapel Hill Town Council voted
Monday to restrict parking in the area
around Elliot's Nest, a recently closed
town night spot which has come under
fire from Graham Street residents who
claim the club disrupts their
Following the recommendation of
Town Manager Gene Shipman, and a
petition from South Graham Street
residents, the council voted 6-0 to
prohibit parking on South Graham
Street-, South Roberson Street and
Cameron Avenue between Graham and
Roberson streets 10 p.m.-6 a.m. daily.
Elliot's Nest closed last week after the
state Alcoholic Beverage Control Board
denied the club a permit to sell beer and
wine, at the request of Graham Street
residents. Owner Tony Gore said he
would appeal the ABC decision.
Town Council member Joe Straley
said he questioned how the town would
enforce the restriction.
"You won't know which cars are
associated with Elliot's Nest and which
are associated with the church (the
second Baptist Church on Graham
Street) until 10 p.m." Straley said. "We
are going to have a big ticket operation
going, aren't weT'
Town Council member Jonathan
Howes said he was not sure the town
should take action now that the club is
"If the license (ABC permit) for Elliot's
Nest is not granted, the residents might
rethink the action," Howes said. "If
Elliot's is no longer open they might like
to have the parking back."
In other action, the council members
accepted a recommendation from
Shipman to eliminate the position of
special assistant to the manager from the
The position, created last summer, was
offered to Fire Chief Everett Lloyd, who
refused it. A job opening has never been
advertised. Lloyd has been a
controversial figure in the debate about
the Public Safety Officer program, which
is opposed by town firemen.
The council members also informally
agreed not to proceed with plans to hold a
bond referendum in May for the
acquisition of open space land.
In September, the council authorized a
study of open space, or undeveloped,
land, with instructions that the study
would be the basis for a May referendum.
Mayor Joe Nassif said, "1 don't
anticipate myself voting for a referendum'
in the springespecially when there's not
a snowball's chance in hell for it passing,
given (the expected) tax increase."
In other action, the town staff
presented a recommendation to amend
the comprehensive plan to prohibit all
drive-in windows. The plan to prevent
scattered development and to encourage
energy conservation by restricting
automobile use, outlines long-range
growth and development goals for
Alter an hour-long discussion, the
council rejected the amendment. In its
next vote, however, the council refused to
approve a request to build a drive-in
photo booth at Kroger Plaza. The council
decided to delay action on the request
until the town completes its zoning
ordinance rewrite, which will address the
issue of drive-in windows.
u ridership increases
By PAT FLANNERY
Bus ridership in Chapel Hill in
December 1979 was greater than in
December 1978 and new buses are on
order to accommodate the increase,
Chapel Hill Transportation Director Bob
Godding said Monday.
Statistics for December 1979 showed
an increase of more than 5,000 riders, up
from 122,860 in December 1978 to
127,624 in December 1979.
"It is a trend that has started and will
continue," said Bill Callahan, the town's
assistant transportation director.
"However, we may not see direct signs of
increase because we are almost operating
at our capacity."
A slight drop in ridership did occur on
the U and S routes for November and
December 1979, but Callahan blamed
unseasonably warm weather and an S
route change for the decrease.
Callahan attributed the overall
increase to "continued pressure from gas
prices, improved services on our
part...and the continued decline in
Accelerated development within
Chapel Hill is also having an effect on
ridership, he said. .
As a result of the increase in bus use,
the city has ordered 1 6 new buses to be
delivered by early December. Godding
said, however, that there is a chance the
buses may be delivered earlier.
Federal funds will pay 80 percent of the
cost of the new buses, while state and
local funds will each pay 10 percent. The
total cost will be an estimated $2.2
In addition, the town has applied for a
grant to help buy eight more buses, but
Godding said final approval is still
To aid in bus service operation costs,
especially rising fuel prices, the town has
also applied for a grant under the Service
Transportation Act, which will pay 50
percent of the bus service's net operation
costs. Callahan said the grant would be
retroactive, covering costs incurred from
Oct. 1, 1979 to Sept. 1, 1980.

OPEN 7 AM-MIDNITE 7 DAYS A VJEELi

Chapel Hill lawyer Joe Hackney announced Tuesday that he is
entering the Democratic race for the state House of
Representatives from the 17th district.
Hackney joins incumbent TrLsh Hunt of Chapel Hiil and
Carrboro realtor Wallace Kaufman in the Democratic primary
contest for the two local House seats. Democratic incumbent
Rep. Ed Holmes of Pittsborp announced last week he would not
seek re-election. Chapel Hill Republican James S. Blair also is
seeking a House seat.
The 17th district includes both Chatham and Orange counties
and Holmes said he hoped his successor would be from Chatham
County. Historically,-one seat has gone to a Chatham resident
and the other to an Orange County resident. But Hackney said he
thought he could serve both Orange and Chatham counties
effectively even though he is a resident of Chapel Hill. Hackney
was born in Siler City and grew up in Chatham County.
"The people in Chatham County are very University-oriented
and people in Chatham benefit from jobs in Orange County,"
Hackney said. "Chatham and Orange have been very close over
the years and 1 would expect that to continue."
Hackney added: "I would not run without substantial support
from Chatham County. 1 feel 1 have the support of the political
leadership in Chatham County."
Hackney said his bid in the Democratic primary is not an
attempt to unseat Hunt.
In his prepared statement Hackney said, "1 hope to become, in
time, an effective friend of the University in the General
Assembly, in the tradition of Ike Andrews, Ed Holmes andTrish
Hackney also said if elected he would concentrate on
legislative efforts to overhaul the state criminal law, to enact
environmental programs, to improve the prison system and to
examine the problem of domestic violence, which is his legal
specialty. Hackney said he also had a long-standingcommitment
to the Equal Rights Amendment.
Hackney, 34, is a partner in the law firm of Epting, Hackney
and Long. He received his law degree from the University in 1970
and served as assistant district attorney for both Orange and
Chatham counties from 1971 to 1974. He is a member of the
board of directors of the Joint Orange and Chatham Community
