Beginning this weekend, both Chapel Hill and Carr
boro will tighten enforcement of alcohol sales to minors,
especially in grocery and convenience stores, Chapel Hill
Mayor Joe Nassif said Wednesday.
Nassif called a meeting early Wednesday morning to
discuss the coming crackdown with local .alcohol ven
dors, including representatives of Spanky's, Linda's
Kroger stores. Four Corners, Troll's, Harrison's and the
Happy Store on Franklin Street.
Also present at the meeting were Carrboro Mayor
Robert Drakeford, Chapel Hill Police Chief Herman
Stone, District Attorney Wade Barber, Orange County
ABC Officer Clifton Latta and representatives of the
Chapel Hill-Carrboro Board of Education.
"There isn't adequate effort being made uniformly
(by vendors) to control the sale of beer to minors,"
Nassif said. "The easiest place for young people to (il
legally) buy beer is at convenience stores and grocery
stores, so we will probably concentrate on those places."
Nassif said Chapel Hill and Carrboro were being
assisted in the crackdown by both Orange County and
state ABC officials.
"There are already people in the area checking stores,
and a number of arrests have already been made," he .
Nassif urged alcohol vendors in the area to step up ef
forts on checking identification before selling beer to
"We're asking you to tell your employees how to
check ID's, to crack down on the minors. We are not
after you licenses, just your cooperation."
Since last year's crackdown on public drinking and the
serving of beer to minors in bars, the checking of proper
identification in most downtown bars has improved
greatly, Nassif said.
"Yet there is still beer being sold to minors," he said.
"We're going to enforce this as hard as we can but if
that action continues, we'll have to go for (revoke) the
Keg parties, a popular pasttime in Chapel Hill, are ao
tually illegal, Nassif warned vendors and distributors. .
"It's illegal to charge for drinking in the first place,"
he said. "Also, there are usually minors being served.
Chapel Hill high school students swing in and out of
those fraternity parties all the time," Nassif added.
"When you sell kegs to fraternities, I want you to keep
in mind that these parties are frequented by minors,"
Nassif said. "We aim to ask the fraternities to assist us,
and we ask you to advise them of that when you sell the
Nassif also asked grocery and convenience stores to
post signs at each cash register and on the front doors
stating that a valid driver's license would be required for
the sale of alcohol.
"Ask your employees to ask for that ID it doesn't
matter if the employee thinks the customer is 25 (years
old) ask for it anyway."
Many managers and owners of area bars said that fake
identification cards and special identification cards (state
: identification cards for those who don't drive) with an
older sibling's name and birthdate were frequent in
"The occurrence of these fake IDs has tripled or
quadrupled over the past 12 months," one restaurant
Barber advised vendors to retain the false identifica
tion and identify the minor to police for further investi
gation. I - ' v
"You've fulfilled your . responsibility by. checking a
(supposedly) valid driver's license," he said.
Nassif said that the nationwide increase in under-age
drinking in the past few years had contributed to in
creased alcoholism among teenagers, rising arrests and
convictions for driving under the influence, and in
creasing accident-related deaths;
"We've turned our backs and minds off it for a long
time. We don't want to do that anymore," Nassif said.
According to police records, IS of the. 19 traffic fa
talities in Orange County last year involved drinking
drivers. Four of the 19 killed were teen-agers one only
14 years old.
In June,, Chapel Hill police arrested eight minors for
driving under the influence, Stone said. Thirteen minors
between the ages of 16 and 17 were arrested for DUIs in
July. ; I . '
Stone said the police department was increasing sur
veillance manpower, for the alcohol sale crackdown.
"Some policemen will be in plain clothes; others will
be in uniform," he said. "We want to forewarn every
body. From now on, your places (establishments selling
beer) will be watched," Stone said.
"There will be a definite step-up in arrests and cita
tions given both for teen-agers and college students
drinking under age," he said.
Students' return brings tripling of nightspot sales
By KAREN HAYWOOD
, DTH SUff Writer
Sales at local nightspots, bars and
beverage stores as much as tripled last
week with the return of students, mana
gers and owners said.
"Our business was triple, maybe
more," what it had been the week before,
said David Sink, owner of Harrison's, a
Franklin Street restaurant and bar.
Sink said Harrison's went through 150
to 200 cases and 15 to 20 kegs of beer last
He said he noticed that students did
not seem to be staying out as late this year
as in previous years. Business tails off at
12:30 a.m., he said.
What do you do if you're 17?
Underage students seek answer
By KAREN HAYWOOD
DTH Staff Writer
You're finally at school, away from
home for the first time and ready to go
out. Where do you go? Not many places,
if you are 17.
One Cobb freshman, who will be 18
Oct. 1, said The Porthole restaurant was
the only place she went, besides parties.
"I was just in and out of the hair be-
cause , I couldn't, get, in. (at dowrMwnT
nightspots)," she said. "I watched TV."
The dorm always emptied about 9:30
p.m. she said.
She said she didn't try to get in any
where. "To go with a group, get carded and
then for someone to have to walk me
back here would be too embarrassing,"
Another student, Cheryl Lockhart,
who will be 18 Sept. 14, said she did not
go many places during orientation week,
but that it was not because she could not
Lockhart said she went to dances on
South Campus, visited friends in Hinton
James and "walked Franklin Street to
"I don't feel like I've been missing
out," she said. "The only thing I'm mis

Having an identification card with an
18-year-old birthdate helps tremendously.
One sophomore who turned 18 this
month, said that without her sister's ID
(saying she was 18), she probably,
wouldn't have gotten into Zack's or Pur
dy's last year.
Senior Barbara Stalder said she seldom
got carded before she turned 18 Sept. 14
of her freshman year.
"Nobody ever carded me. Now they're
stricter," she said.
Patience is, to many minds, the answer.

years. I can wait mine too," the Cobb

Business at Four Corners restaurant
bar "at least doubled" last week, kitchen
manager Greg Nils said.
. Bill Moss, Four Corners' day bartender,
said bar sales almost doubled from the
week before, when no students were here.
"It was a big jump," Moss said. "We
have a lot of regular customers who are
non-students, but business picks up when
the students return." ,
"Our business tripled," said Bobby
Ipock, manager of the Happy Store.
Ipock said the beer-and-wine-oriented
convenience store sold 1,500 cases of beer
and 50 cases of wine last week.
Most students surveyed said they went
out almost every night last week, and that,
their entertainment was fairly inexpen
sive. Roommates Janet Pester and Tina
Buchholz went to Purdy's the first night
they were back in Chapel Hill, Zack's on
Wednesday night, fraternity parties on
Thursday back to Purdy's on Friday and
back to Zack's on Saturday.
"We've had an active week," one said.
Pester said she spent only $5, and
Buchholz said she spent about $10.
"A lot of stuff was free last week,"
. Chris Tucker, a junior living in Everett
Residence Hall, went to Purdy's and va
rious parties around campus last week.
Tucker said his entertainment cost
about $50 for the week. -
Ken Mingis, a junior from Raleigh,
said he went to Kirkpatrick's, Purdy's
and Zack's on the nights he went ou$ last
"I spent $35 at least," Mingis said.
Evan Miller, a freshman from Char
lotte, said the money ($10-$15) he spent
went mostly toward admission charges.
"Almost everything was free," he said.
