Wilson announces candidacy

B. Willis Wilson II officially announc
ed his candidacy for the Carrboro Board
of Aldermen Wednesday afternoon in the
board room of Town Hall. .
"With the economy slowly turning
around, I am interested in seeing that
Carrboro receives its fair share of the
benefits of this growth," Wilson said.
A resident of Carrboro for the past
year, Wilson said he sees the town stan
ding at a crossroads.
"Development should be encouraged
with a sensitivity to and respect for pro
per planning and zoning," he said. "One
should not eliminate the other." The
future thrust of development, he said,
must be consistent with the trends already
"Public transportation and its future
in Carrboro needs to be closely studies,"
said Wilson, who has been a member of
the town's Board of Adjustment since the
beginning of the year.
Wilson said he was not aligned with
any political faction. "I am running as an

Wilson, 31 , said he thought his chances
for community support were good, and
that he had been in contact with several
campus organizations. Students, blacks
and professionals should be particularly
supportive, he said.
A registered Democrat, Wilson said he
will file with the Orange County Board of
Elections this week.
Wilson has been pastor of the St. Paul
African Methodist Episcopal Church in
Chapel Hill since 1982. His wife, Cyn-

Treasury officials confiscate explosives in Mebane
Cane Creek may -help in future
By JOEL BROADWAY
Assistant Managing Editor
An additional water source for Orange
County will not arrive in time to quench
the present water shortage, but the pro
posed Cane Creek Reservoir soon may be
out of the deep water.
On Oct. 13 the Environmental Manage
ment Commission is expected to reinstate
Orange Water and Sewer Authority's right
to condemn the property they need to
build the reservoir, according to Everett
Billingsley, executive director of OWASA.
The $16.3 million project would create a
water reservoir on Cane Creek, about 12
miles west of Chapel Hill. If constructed,
the reservoir could provide 10 million
gallons of water per day. This output,
coupled with the 3 million gallons that
University Lake was designed to supply,
would last Chapel Hill until the year 2030,
OWASA is pumping about six million
gallons per day from University Lake.
Billingsley said that the need for another
reservoir was first studied in 1975. The
following year OWASA asked the Univer
sity to contract a study of Cane Creek,
assessing its potential to provide additional
water for Orange County.
Once OWASA determined that Cane
Creek would be the best location for a
reservoir, it. conducted two appraisals of
.the, 758 .acres to determine the fair market
iiiiyalue of thejand. The fair, rnarket .value is ;
the price paid for land when it is con
demned, he said.
The EMC had granted permission to
OWASA to begin condemning land, but
that decision was reversed by a N.C.
Superior Court ruling in August.
OWASA starting buying land from resi
dents of the Cane Creek area in 1979,
however, it has only been able to purchase
25 of the 50 parcels needed.
Shortly after the project was proposed,
the Cane Creek Conservation Authority
was formed to oppose the project on the
grounds that Chapel Hill had enough
alternative water sources, namely Jordan
Lake and the Haw River.
Although OWASA has been slowed by
lawsuits and injunctions filed by the
CCCA, the project is following a time
table, and could be finished in four years,
"We didn't feel it was fair to use pres
sure tactics," he said. "We haven't tried to
condemn anyone's land. We haven't
threatened to condemn anyone's land."
Billingsley said that Cane Creek was not
an example of the big guy vs. little guy
confrontation, and that no land had been
condemned. "Technically, we have had
the authority to condemn," he said.
While OWASA will continue to nego
tiate with landowners, he expects that the
EMC will approve OWASA's right to
begin condemnation at the fair market
"We could have gone out and gotten a
professional land procuring company, and
they could have bought some, of the. land
for a cheaper price," he said 4iX

pressure (not to sell)," he said. "There are

project. And there are people who want a

Federal Treasury Department agents, with assistance from the
Orange County Sheriffs Department, confiscated plastic ex
plosives Monday from a Mebane residence.
Ed Garrison, an agent with the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol,
Tobacco and Firearms in Raleigh, said agents discovered one
pound of military TNT and approximately 21.5 pounds of an
unknown substance. These substances have yet to be analyzed
by Bureau officials.
Garrison said the explosives were found under the home of
Alice Crumpler, Route 5, Mebane. Crumpler told officials that
she was not aware that the explosives were under her home.
Crumpler's son, Jerry Hughes, who lives in the house, was ar
rested and charged with possession of controlled substances,
The substances were discovered in Hughes' bedroom.
Garrison said he did not know if Hughes had any connection
with the explosives found under the house.
Garrison declined to say how agents learned that explosives
were located in the Crumpler home.
GIVE TO THE
Of the additional water sources avail
able, Billingsley said Cane Creek would
provide users with the best quality.
"The phosphate problem is more in
tense at Jordan Lake," Billingsley said. He
added that municipal contributions to the
Haw River increase the phosphate content.
"That's just the tip of the iceberg," he
said. According to Billingsley, David Mill
ington, an associate professor of environ
mental science and engineering at UNC,
has found in an independent study that
there were 52 synthetic organic com
pounds in the Haw River.
"The EPA has judged a few of these as
harmless, but we can't know what they
would do together," Billingsley said. Some
of these synthetic organic compounds have
not been tested, he said.
While this testing was not conducted at
Cane-Creek, Billingsley, said that the his
torical method of surveying the watershed -
showed that Cane Creek was a much bet
ter water source because it has no major
municipalities, railroads or highways con
tributing to it.
