(pouimoD foods laodscapDO of higlhw The Daily Tar Heel Monday, February 20, 19893 ay "' n ote irchaini ees ' By TRACY LAWSON Staff Writer ' the Chapel Hill Town Council voted last week to allocate $25,000 for the landscaping of the new Interstate 40 interchanges at U.S. 15 501 and N.C. 86. The money for this project will come from the 1986 Parks and Open Space Bond. : "The money raised from the sale of these bonds is used to acquire and improve existing land for parks, entranceways and general landscap ing," said Richard Terrell, Chapel Hill General Services superintendent. "When we (the town) are requested to allocate money, we have to find the proper location from which to get the money," Terrell said. Cassandra Sloop said the North Carolina Department of Transporta tion (DOT) is offering a $200,000 matching fund allocation for inter state improvements. Sloop is chairwoman of the Chapel Hill Appearance Commission and a representative to the Triangle J Regional Appearance Committee. "The money is offered on a first come, first-serve basis; therefore it is important that we get our money in early," Sloop said. "All checks must be received by DOT by mid-June to be considered for matching funds." In addition to the money allocated by the town council, Sloop is asking for donations from the private sector. "Because of the matching fund set up by DOT we" have already raised $50,000," she said. "We would like to raise $12,500 from the private sector because that would give us the $75,000 we need." journalist to discuss post-eagaim forei By HEATHER BOWERS Staff Writer' Noted journalist Alexander Cock burn will speak tonight on "Foreign Policy After Reagan: A Kindler, Gentler Nation?" at 7:30 p.m. in the Hanes Arts Center auditorium. The lecture is co-sponsored by the Chapel HillCarrboro Interfaith Taskforce on Central America (CITCA), the UNC School of Jour nalism and four other groups. Cockburn, an Irish citizen, is a regular columnist for The Nation and The Wall Street Journal, and he contributes to other well-known newspapers. He was educated at Oxford Uni versity and has lived in the United States since he came here in 1972. CockburrTs most recent book is "Corruptions of Empire: Life in the Reagan Years," published last year. Diana McDuffie, chairwoman of CITCA, said, "Alexander Cockburn is a thought-provoking journalist who specializes in criticizing media coverage of foreign countries." She als.o said Cockburn is a "champion of leftist politics," and he See the DTH Hoiasnimg Gcalde in today's paper presents many of her group's political views. McDuffie said she feels this lecture is a good opportunity for establishing a coalition of groups who are inter ested in developing countries. Richard Cole, dean of the School of Journalism, said a journalism faculty member, Jane Brown, recom mended Cockburn for the lecture. The journalism school is sponsoring the lecture because of this recommen dation and because Cockburn is a noted journalist, Cole said. "Any little bit helps," she said. "It's a good opportunity to get free state money." The North Carolina Botanical Gardens has offered to help the town with expertise and possibly with donations of plant material. "There will probably be an ad hoc committee formed with the botanical gardens and DOT landscapers to decide what plants will be used," poiocy McDuffie said she thought the best way to describe Cockburn was to quote a review of one of his books. The review appeared in The London Book of Reviews and was written by Edward Saide, professor of literature at Columbia University and an adviser to the Palestine Liberation Organization. There are "few people who have the courage to' accumulate enemies the way Cockburn has," Saide wrote. Tonight's lecture in Hanes Art Center is free of charge. go Sloop said. Ken Moore, assistant director of the N.C. Botanical Gardens, said, "We have not made any definite commitments for donating plant materials. "However, we sometimes have extra plants, and we are glad to share. So when the time comes to start planting, if we have the material we will be glad to donate it." Any campus organization that is interested in donating money should contact Cassandra Sloop at 942-7049. Price to speak on health issue Rep. David Price will speak tonight at 7:30 p.m. in 103 Berryhill. Price, a Democrat, is the 4th District congressional representative from North Carolina. The speech, "Federal Health Care Policy for the 1990s," is being sponsored by the American Medical Students' Association." Beautiful Graduation Gifts! Grads!! Send our free brochure to your parents!
