Restaurant changes hands; travel
By L.D. CURLE
Part of the changing look of
downtown Chapel Hill is in the
evolution of existing businesses. Two
such changes are the sale of the
Jordan Le Charolais restaurant and
the move of Small World Travel into
a new location. .
Jordan Le Charolais, at 157 E.
Rosemary St., has changed owners
and names, and is now Ballyhoo's.
The previous owner, Jim Bartlett,
sold the restaurant to former
employee Doug Wallace. '
Wallace said the business has
effectively changed hands, although
the final papers are to be signed
sometime within the next two weeks.
"We don't have any drastic changes
in mind for the outside of the
building, other than to clean it up
(and) put in a canopy and some
shrubbery," Wallace said.
The interior of the restaurant has
been remodeled, and the rest of the
renovations will be done while the

say Hatcher didn't want to return to

McKinley is scheduled to appear
before the grand jury Tuesday.
U.S. District Attorney John Bruce,
who issued McKinley's subpoena, is
not required to tell McKinley what
the grand jury is investigating.
But Barry Nakell, Hatcher's lawyer
and a UNC law professor, said the
