Florida coupon promoter folds local company
By REBEKAH WRIGHT
Chapel Hill residents will no longer be plagued by calls
pushing the purchase of Chapel Hill Golden Check Books.
The Chapel Hill Golden Check Co., based in Pensacola, Fla.,
informed the Greater Chapel HiU-Carrboro Chamber of Com
merce this week that their company here had folded for the year.
Many town residents contacted the Chamber of Commerce
questioning the legitimacy of the coupon books. The coupon
books, which were sold by phone, retailed for $24.95. Check
company officials claimed the coupons had a value of $350 in,
goods and services. : '
Coupons distributed by the company claimed that the Golden
Check Co. and local merchants had an agreement, said Leonard
P. Van Ness, executive vice president of the Chamber of Com
merce. Van Ness said the coupons were misleading because the pro
moters of the coupon sales, Jerry and Alice Richardson, had not
made any formal contract with merchants in Chapel Hill.
"When we got calls from prospective buyers of this book, we
started checking into it," Van Ness said. "And what we were
wanting to find out was; one, were the promoters legitimate;
and two, what would be some of the concerns of the would-be
The Richardsons left a 3 by 5 inch index card with the
Chamber of Commerce listing a box number in Pensacola.
Promoters also talked with Carr Mill Mall management of
ficials and claimed that they were registered with the Chamber
of Commerce when they leased space in the mall.
The chamber consulted the Better Business Bureau, which
had no file on the coupon company.
The Better Business Bureau advised the chamber to make
some form of agreement between merchants and the promoters.
But the promoters closed operations before such an arrange
ment could be made.
The chamber cautioned purchasers of the Golden Checks, ad
vising them that the promoters had made no formal contract
with local merchants.
Although the promoters made no contractual arrangement
with merchants, an agreement had been made concerning the
number of coupons merchants would honor.
. Chamber officials were concerned that the promoter might
print more than the number of books the merchant agreed to
and then leave town with the extra money. Under this condition,
the merchant would not be obligated to honor the additional
coupons and the consumer would lose his money.
The Better Business Bureau advised prospective buyers of the
coupons to consider their actual worth. Although the coupons
had a maximum value of $350, coupon purchasers would pro
bably be unable to redeem every coupon.
Van Ness said the chamber would keep a file on the Golden
Checks Co. so that if it returned to Chapel Hill, the Chamber of
Commerce could further investigate the company.
"Next year we'll double check it a little bit, and maybe be able
to give it a better statement," Van Ness said.
Van Ness also cautioned consumers not to enter into ar
rangements with out-of-town promoters unless they are assured
of the reputation and ability of the company.

Algae, long considered a chief nuisance to
northern Piedmont water supplies, is fed by
phosphorus discharged into rivers and lakes. In
dustries and wastewater treatment plants may at
some point be asked to place severe restrictions
on the amount of phosphorous they discharge.
Phosphorous is used in many household and
industrial detergents. It's a major contributor to
the growth of algae, a substance that makes
water treatment difficult in shallow lakes such
Jim Sheppard, spokesman for the N.C.
Department of Natural Resources and Com
munity Development, said the growth of blue
green algae hampers lakes and rivers in three
ways. ' -
"It makes it hard to treat lake water for
drinking purposes, and that's what we're con-
also aesthetically displeasing, and it interferes
with food supplies for fish."
Another organization looking into water
problems at Jordan Lake is the UNC School of.
Public Health. School officials in the Depart
ment of Environmental Sciences and Engineer
ing have detected a wide range of organic
chemicals in the lake.
Meanwhile, Chapel Hill officials worried
over the town's lack of adequate drinking water
supplies are examining the use of Jordan
Lake as a source for water. Mayor Joe Nassif
said he renlained skeptical over the use of Jor
dan for drinking water until officials determined
the extent of chemical pollution.

BEIRUT, Lebanon President Amin Gemayel on
Wednesday scheduled a "national reconciliation conference"
for Oct. 20, but factional violence raged on. Moslem
Communist fighting left 47 dead and 70 wounded in Tripoli,
and six soldiers were wounded in a Druse attack on the town
of Souk el-Chart).
Although Gemayel set a date for the reconciliation con
ference, he did not announce a site for the meeting the ma
jor obstacle to holding it. However, he said a preliminary com
mittee should begin working today to set an agenda for the
Meanwhile, there was another break in the cease-fire, with
six Lebanese soldiers wounded, two seriously, in the Druse at

TOKYO Former Prime Minister Kakuei Tanakaone of
Japan's most powerful politicians, was sentenced to a four
year prison term Wednesday for taking bribes from Lockheed
Aircraft Corp. But he defiantly rejected demands he resign
The Tokyo District Court said Tanaka, during his 1972-74
tenure as prime minister, accepted 500 million yen, equivalent
to $2,125 million, to promote the sales of the U.S. firm's
passenger planes in Japan.
The court found him guilty of bribery and foreign exchange
violations and fined him the equivalent of the bribes.
GENEVA, Switzerland Soviet and U.S. negotiators met
Wednesday to discuss limiting medium-range missiles in
Europe and scheduled their next session as- usual, despite
reports of a possible breakdown in talks.
But senior Kremlin spokesman Leonid Zamyatln, . filing
West, Germany, warned that the Soviets would leave the
negotiating table if no results were forthcoming and if
NATO's new Pershing missiles are deployed in Western
Europe in December as planned. .
; U.S. officials in Washington said Tuesday that the Soviet
Union was threatening to break off the talks if NATO goes
ahead with deployment.
In Bonn, the West German government said talk of a
breakoff in the negotiations was part of a "war of nerves" '
designed to heat up anti-missile protests, but that the govern
ment is "firmly convinced that both sides in Geneva remain
willing to negotiate."
Most of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in
North Carolina and Tennessee would be designated as
wilderness under legislation being prepared by Sen. Jesse A.
The bill would also resolve a 40-year-old dispute between
the government and residents of Swain County, N.C.
Helms' bill would authorize construction of a road that the
government promised Swain County 40 years ago but never
built. It would also give the county some compensation for the
lost road, but Helms has not decided on how much to request.
Tennessee's senators, Republican Howard Baker, the ma
jority leader, and James Sasser, a Democrat, introduced a
similar bill Friday setting the compensation at $9.5 million.
WINSTON-SALEM A federal judge has ordered a

views it made for a documentary on the November 1979
Five Communist Workers Party members were shot to
death during a "Death to the Klan" rally Nov. 3, 1979. Six
Klansmen and Nazis were found innocent of state murder
charges about a year after the shootings. Nine Ku Klux
Klansmen and Nazis face civil rights charges in the incident.
U.S. District Judge Thomas A. Flannery said in papers filed
. Tuesday that he has approved defense requests to subpoena a
copy of the documentary "88 Seconds in Greensboro," which
was broadcast nationally on Jan. 24. He also agreed to sub
poenas for videotapes of interviews not used in the documentary.
