of $514,000 in its ambitious 1986
fund-raising campaign, which ended
at 5 p.m. Thursday.

raised more than our goal this year,"

in a WCHL-FM radio interview
The citizens who helped contrib

"We.go into the campaign with
supreme confidence, get a little
nervous mid-way through, and find
out that, son-of-a-gun, we did meet
our goal," Hughes said later in an

Groups discuss issues at candlelight vigil
By MITRA LOTFI
The issues of divestment and
minority affairs attracted about 65
people to a candlelight vigil at the
Franklin Street post office Thursday
The UNC Anti-Apartheid Sup
port Group and the Rainbow Coa
lition, a group concerned with
minority student affairs, co
sponsored the vigil.
Despite the bitter cold, supporters
met to discuss their concerns about
UNC's investments in companies
doing business in South Africa and
about problems facing minority
students in the Carrboro-Chapel Hill

The Orange County Dispute
Settlement Center has started a
program designed to allow vic
tims and young, small-crime
offenders to settle their conflicts
out of court and to confront each
other on a one-to-one basis.
The Victim-Offender Reconci
liation Program (VORP), one of
40 similar programs nationwide,
is the brainchild of Claire Millar,
director of the two Dispute
Settlement centers in Carrboro
Millar said she came up with
the idea after she herself was
victimized when she First moved
to Chapel Hill.
Area high school students stole
two of her cars and drove them
into Eastwood Lake, she said.
The incident made her see a need
for a forum where victims could
tell the offenders how they felt.
VORP handles only cases
involving first offenders under 16
"The program will handle only
non-violent cases, in the physical
sense," Millar said. "Burglary is
violent, but it's not physical."
She invited representatives of
a national organization to town
last year to determine the suita
bility of Orange County for such
Representatives from the
National Victim Reconciliation
Resource Center talked to law
yers, police officers, schools, and
judges and found that this type
of program would work well in
Orange County, she said.
Millar said she had no idea how
many cases the program would
handle, but noted that the Greens

situations that they feel would be
better handled out of the cour
troom refer cases to VORP,
Millar said ' '
"These officials seem to be very
excited about the new program
and what it hopes to do," she said.
The other victim-offender pro
grams have received very positive
feedback, she said, adding that
she is optimistic about the influ
ence VORP will have.
"It has so much impact on an
offender to have to face the
person they victimized," Millar
said. "It also helps the victims
learn from their negative expe
riences and get something positive
out of it.
"Both parties are given the
opportunity to have input into
what they feel should be done
about the conflict, including
restitution," she said.
She said there was a case she
heard of that was handled by
another agency where the amount
of stolen property totaled $1,000
and the restitution was only $50.
