Groyp offers D-40 deveDopmemitt plan
By LARRY STONE
I The Adaron Group has proposed
a 40-acre mixed development at the
intersection of Interstate 40 and N.C.
36, the first development of its kind
along the newly opened stretch of I
40. Ron Strom, one of the Research
Triangle group's partners, said it
would take five to 10 years to
jcomplete the project at a cost of about
j The land is on the southeastern
border of 1-40 and stretches back to
;Weaver Dairy Road.
The development will be predom
inantly office space, but there also will
be a commercial component and
possibly a hotel, health club and
entertainment complex, Strom said,
j "We, as the applicant, have pro
posed a fully integrated, well
planned, fully coordinated project,"
; The project will have to meet the
standards set up by the joint planning
agreement, zoning ordinances passed
by Orange County, Chapel Hill and
Carrboro, and the mixed-use zoning
The joint planning agreement
establishes a rural buffer zone to
distinguish between residential areas
and places where development may
occur. 1-40 is the border for the rural
buffer at N.C. 86, which might allow
the proposed project south of the
"Our quadrant was clearly marked
for a highly intensive development,"
The mixed-use ordinance calls for
future development with minimum
impact on neighborhoods and exist
ing roadways. Strom said his firm's
proposal meets both criteria.
"There's not a better place to serve
northern Chapel Hill," he said. "The
only neighborhood in that area is
Northwoods on the west side of
(N.C.) 86. We have taken great steps a large parcel of land and coordinate
to minimize the effects by placing the it, it should be good for the commun-
hotel and commercial area closer to
the interchange and proposing an
office across from the subdivision."

The proposal is a two-step proce

blueprint of the general layout of
buildings, parking and buffers, Strom

have a situation like the one at
Franklin (Street) and Estes (Drive),
where you have different landscaping,

they were master-planned?"
Although the approval process has
just begun, Strom said he has had
some preliminary discussions with

Viirus causes mimiDmai damage

; The computer virus devised and

graduate student Robert Morris Jr.
caused some slight disturbances
within the University and surround
The virus was a program that
inserted itself into a computer system
to spread to other programs, causing
temporary confusion as it traveled,
said assistant computer science pro
fessor Dean Brock.
The virus used the computer mail
system SENDMAIL as the gateway
to other potential systems, but the
spread was stopped early, Brock said.
The virus could have entered the
SENDMAIL system or another
system called FINGER, or it could
have cracked other systems' pass
words, said Bill Fuller, manager of
the computer center at MCNP, a
microelectronics firm in Research
The virus attempted to enter some
of MCNP's systems, but security
programs dissolved it, Fuller said.
MCNC shut down some systems but
had no damage, he added.
"A substantial amount of time was
wasted because we didnt know what
the effect would be at the time," Fuller
"It was a very clever program,"
Brad Bennett, an electronic tech
nician in the computer science depart
ment, said some changes were made
to two or three programs.
"We were pretty lucky," Bennett
said. "It never made it into any of

would call it fairly upscale in nature.
But the commercial portion of the

The news-exchange network that
the virus attacked was necessarily
open and flexible to allow for the easy
flow of data and information, Bennett
"The virus was restricted to aca

serious stuff," Brock said.
Even though major systems have
substantial protection, Bennett said
a more "deadly" virus could erase

about his motive for creating the

"We want everyone to realize that
geography deals with a wide variety
of things like climate, the environ

The long-standing problem of
public housing overcharges in Chapel
Hill has been solved by $100,000 in
federal money, and public housing
tenants had a chance to find out about
it at a meeting last week.
Because the local housing authority
did not keep up with rising utility
rates, the tenants were not given a
large enough utility allowance,

attorney for North State Legal

Development and the Town of
Chapel Hill will provide $100,000 to
correct overcharges that began in
1982, Carraway said.
In a public meeting last week, the
tenants had a chance to find out what
the refunds involve.
Tina Vaughn, director of housing
and community development for
Chapel Hill, said the refunds will be
given to the affected tenants as a rent
there was concern these refunds might
interfere with their benefits, Vaughn
The tenants were told to notify
their respective social workers upon
receiving the check, she said. There
is no guarantee that a tenant's benefits
will be safe, but most tenants' benefits
will not be affected, she said.
Town attorney Ralph Karpinos
said the town discovered the problem
in 1986 when it appointed someone
to act as a temporary director of the
Chapel Hill Housing Authority.
At that time, the authority was a
separate legal entity from the town,
and the town was considering estab:
lishing a housing program that would
be responsible to the town, Karpinos
When the appointment was made
and town officials heard a legal
service had been contacted about the
overcharges, the town got involved,

ity has since been dissolved and has
been replaced by the town's Depart
ment of Housing and Community.
The overcharges may have convinced
some town officials that the housing
authority should be replaced with a
program with direct accountability to
the town, Karpinos said.
The problem has taken nearly two
years to correct because the town had
to go back and determine when the
rate updates should have been made
