clustered around him.
Thursday, Derrick Fenner worked
in a trash collecting company in his
hometown of Oxon Hill, Md., where
he is living with his family after
flunking out of school and losing his
athletic scholarship. Clara Fenner,
Derrick's mother, said early Thurs
day afternoon that her son would
already be home, but that the trash
truck had broken down and gotten
her son off to a late start that day.
"He didn't get out of here until
10:30 a.m., so hell probably have
to work late," she said.
Fenner left school in December

his English 2 class, he said Thursday

Mario Cruz, a fourth-year grad

resident for three years, is worried
that change may come to his peaceful
community within the campus's
A report commissioned by the
Educational Foundation Inc. pro
poses creating four 10-foot wide
paths through the village to provide
"special event back-door exit drive
ways" for Tar Heel fans fans who
up until now have been stuck in
traffic for up to an hour after games.
Odum Village is a small, peaceful
community for married UNC stu
dents. Located off Manning Drive
between Craige Residence Hall and
N.C. Memorial Hospital, its 35
apartment buildings are nestled into
a corner of South Campus, sharing
their west border with a residential
"Married student housing could
be affected in various ways," Cruz
said. "It will destroy the atmosphere
if people come walking and driving
through here honking their horns at
God knows what hour," he said.
Cruz, a member of the Odum
Village Board of Aldermen, fears
that the Educational Foundation,
also called the Ram's Club, may
disrupt the community if it follows
the recommendations of Kimley

for sure," he said. "First I was
thinking of leaving, but that was just
out of anger."
UNC assistant coach Ted Gill
visited Fenner Thursday. According
to Fenner, Gill said he would help
him as much as he could, but
Fenner's reinstatement rode on his
own shoulders. Fenner said he had
not spoken with Crum since being
suspended from the team.
Fenner said he is anxious to begin
two correspondence courses from
UNC in an attempt to get reinstated.
"I could just come back in the
summer and take a lot of courses,
but that would be too much," he said.
UNC coach Dick Crum was on
a recruiting trip Thursday and could
not be reached for comment.
Fenner's job came about through
a friend whose father gave him a
trash collecting business. Fenner said
he rarely is involved in the physical
labor of trash collecting. Instead, he
usually tries to set up new collecting
contracts for the company. "I'm
wonderful way after another."
Margaret Sanford said her most
challenging role was being wife of
"I was involved with everything,"
she said. "There were so many things
to do and go to and take part in.
We also did a lot of entertaining."
Although life was hectic, she said
her four years in the governor's
mansion had its advantages.
"It was nice having people waiting
on you," she said. "Not having to
cook. Having someone to drive you
everywhere. That was fine. But in
the long haul, it was more rewarding

spent over a year on the 400-person
waiting list to move into the $236

The report, "Traffic Ingress

it calls the "chaotic congestion" that
stymies traffic flow following special
events at the arena.
But it's not clear how many of the
recommendations the Ram's Club
will follow up on, said Claude E.
"Gene" Swecker, associate vice
chancellor for facilities management.
The proposal could be negated by
a part of the special use permit
granted to UNC by the town of
Chapel Hill. The provision doesn't
allow any exits to be built through
Mason Farm Road (the ultimate exit
in the plan), he said.
"To my knowledge there are no
approved plans for that," Swecker
said, referring to the proposed
driveways. "It will probably not
happen in the immediate future."

Fenner's football season was
perhaps the most rollercoaster year
a North Carolina athlete has ever
had. He started the year by coming
off the bench against The Citadel to

bizarre season, he was suspended

for our husbands, they'd have to hire
somebody to do it. But I enjoyed
that sort of thing," she said.
