Institute to study entrepreneurs
By KEVIN WASHINGTON
UNC's Institute for Private Enter
prise is more than a year away from
becoming operational, but its first
executive director, Rollie Tillman,
vice chancellor for University rela
tions, said the project is something
we're all very excited about."
Tillman, who will leave his present
position to assume the director's
position on Jan. 1, called the Insti
tute for Private Enterprise a "crea
ture" of the School of Business
Administration dedicated to
research and education in the area
Announced last December, the
Institute will be supported by the
William R. Kenan Fund.
He said "Well be looking at how
one cares for and nurtures a new
enterprise how to help them start
up and how to make sure they last."
"We intend for the Institute to be
a national center," he said. He added
that he wanted the researchers to be
from the academic community.
For the most part, he said, busi
nesses conducting research usually
did not publish their findings, but
because of the academic nature of
the project, their research findings
would be published. "We're not a
captive arm of business we're here
to serve business."
Tillman said the Institute for
Private Enterprise would be unique
because no other research institute
was solely dedicated to the research
of new businesses. "The University
of Southern California does quite a
lot of research in this area, but no
one place has been set up to do it."
As a research arm of the business
school, he said, the Institute would
be an excellent educational tool.
"After we Ye amassed thousands of
new records, we think the under
grads, graduate students and faculty
will have a real rich resource.
"We also are seeking funds for '
interdisciplinary studies with the law
school, school of political science
and health sciences division," he said.
He said "As we grow, out of what
we learn, we will develop courses as
a part of continuing education for
entrepreneurs interested in launching
The Institute's establishment at
the University is especially approp
riate because of its close proximity
to Research Triangle Park, he said.
"What's likely to happen is that
new ventures in business will spring
from the recent developments in
technology," he said. "In fact, most
new employment in the country has
been created by new, smaller enter
prises a whole new generation of

Edmisten in the interview.
Martin told the audience that the
state had suffered embarrassment
because highway bidriggers had "liter
ally reached into your back pocket and
taken your tax money."
Martin said Edmisten's staff had
called evidence against bidriggers
"wishy-washy" even as they were being
convicted in federal court and quoted
a federal judge as saying state officials
should have prosecuted the cases.
Edmisten called Martin's statements
"ridiculous," saying his office had
chosen to take civil action to recover
money from the contractors.

State rethinks town thoroughfare plan
By MIKE GUNZENHAUSER
The state Department of Transportation is reconsidering
Chapel Hill's thoroughfare plan after top department officials
met with Mayor Joseph Nassif last week.
William R. Roberson Jr., state secretary of transportation,
and Billy Rose, state highway administrator, endorsed Chapel
Hill's plan after Nassif agreed to keep open the possibility
of an Estes Drive extension to improve access to the proposed
Carrboro 's thoroughfare plan included the extension of
Estes Drive, which would provide the people of Carrboro
with a shorter route to the new highway.
The Estes Drive extension would cross residential areas
in Chapel Hill. Residents opposed the construction of the
road because it would increase traffic through their
neighborhoods. The Chapel Hill Town Council decided that
the extension should not be included in a thoroughfare plan
at this time
Chapel Hill's plan also did not include the one-way pairing
of Franklin and Rosemary Streets through downtown Chapel
Hill to alleviate traffic.
Lynn Magee, an assistant to Nassif, said that one-way
pairing of streets in towns the size of Chapel Hill has most
often led to the deterioration of the downtown area,
frustrating traffic rather than alleviating it.
Chapel Hill's plan includes improvements on U.S. 15-501
and N.C. 54, east of town. The DOT recommended that
the route to Durham be widened and include more
The need for an updated thoroughfare plan has been
recognized for many years. Since 1979, Chapel Hill and
Carrboro officials have worked toward a joint proposal.
Officials were unable to come up with a common plan, so
each town submitted a separate plan.
With support from top department officials, the
thoroughfare plan is expected to win approval from the state
Board of Transportation this fall.
