A comparison of area grocery prices
This chart is a biweekly comparative ranking of food prices at local grocery stores compiled by the Student Con
sumer Action Union. SCAU checks prices on 43 sample items in five categories and compares the averages. Eight
students visit Chapel Hill and Carrboro grocery stores every two weeks to gather the prices.
To read this chart, cross-index the store name with a food category column. The printed number indicates the
store's rank from lowest to highest in price during this week's survey period. For example, Fowler's has the second
lowest price for dairy products, but only ranks sixth for all categories.

NOTE: Prices for A&P and Harris-Teeter were gathered at their Airport Rd. and Carr Mill Mall stores, respectively.
County Commissioners to vote on animal control
By SALLY SMITH
Orange County Commissioners will vote Monday night on
proposed amendments to the animal control ordinance.
"Orange County doesn't have a good or even adequate
animal control ordinance," said Jerry Robinson, county health
department director. The county's ordinance is inadequate for
roaming and biting dogs, he said, and represents the minimal
regulations set by the state.
The proposed ordinance includes prohibiting owners from
allowing animals to create a nuisance by damaging property or
being dangerous to the public. It also prohibits animal abuse
and requires citizens who injure animals with motor vehicles to
notify the owners, sheriffs office or animajhelter.
Violators of the ordinance would be subject to a $25 fine,
which would double if not paid within three days. Certain in
fractions would result in animal impoundment at the owner's
Public debate on the amendments was heard by the com
missioners on Sept. 6 and Sept. 20. Citizens in favor of the pro
posals saw it as a measure to protect neglected animals, as well
as people and property.
The Animal Protection Society of Orange County finds the
proposed ordinance very appropriate, said Dr. Robert Green
berg, a member of the organization's board of directors.
Some citizens at the public hearings said they felt some rural
parts of Orange County should be given fewer restrictions than
the more populated areas.
However, during the period from March 1982 to February
1983 the health department received calls to investigate 2,136
complaints from the unincorporated parts of the county, Robin
son said. During this period, 115 people were bitten, i
The county brings in about 350 dogs a month to the animal
shelter from rural areas, Robinson said. ;
After the hearing on Sept. 20, the ordinance went to a com
mittee for final consideration. The committee included Robin
son, APS representatives and the county attorney.
"The responsible animal owner, rural or city, will have no
problem with the ordinance," Greenberg said.
The commissioners' meeting will be at 7:30 p.m. Monday at
the county courthouse in Hillsborough.

What do you think about having a male Homecoming
Howard O'Dell, sophomore, mathematics major,
Greensboro: "I think it was an embarrassment. It's real
ly a shame that Homecoming was made such a farce. It's
something everyone gets really excited about, and it
shouldn't have been made a sham."
Becky Sillmon, sophomore, political science major,
Greensboro: "When I first heard about it, I thought it
was funny, but after I thought about it I felt sorry for the
girls. I think it was kind of humiliating to them, and I
really think a girl should have been chosen."
Tom Evans, graduate student in English, Chapel Hill:
"It's small potatoes. I grew up in the '60s when they
elected pigs, so it's really nothing new. I really don't take
it all that seriously."
Ridley Kessler, Wilson librarian, Chapel Hill: "I felt
sorry for the girls who spent all that money on their
dresses. We used to do that sort of thing when I was an
undergraduate too, but I guess you look at things dif
ferently as you get older."
Cynthia Murphy, freshman, criminal justice major,
Fayetteville: "I like the idea. Girls are always talking
about equal rights, and I think it should work both
ways. Tcan understand why it upset some people, but I
have no qualms about it. I think it took a lot of courage
for him to go through with it."
Jeff Creech, sophomore, computer science major,
Winston-Salem: "I think it was pretty stupid. It was em
barrassing, and I think it upset a lot of the alumni. At
first I thought it was a girl just ranning under the "Your
momma sleeps in Teague" slogan, but then I realized that
it really was a guy."
