Ga statooo to replace TaDbeirtt's store
By TOM PARKS
A Chapel Hill business will likely
be going under the bulldozers soon.
Silas Talbert, manager of Talbert 's
Food Mart, said Kenan Oil plans to
build a new gas station convenience
store at the site of the present store.
Talbert's has been at its location
on Raleigh Road and Hamilton Road
for .bout seven years, he said.
he Chapel Hill Town Council
approved Kenan Oil's application for
a special use permit last week. The
permit is required for the construc
tion of the new station.
Kenan Oil owns the property the
food nrirt is on and leases it to
Talbert said he has worked hard
to build un the station. "Thev want
to tear it down and build one of them
proper type stations and run it
themselves," Talbert said.
"Obviously, I'm not happy with
their decision," he said. "They want
Kenan Oil has been talking about
making the change for the last year
to year and a half, Talbert said.
Talbert said he does not know if
any of the current employees will have
jobs at the new station.
Don Cokely of Kenan Oil said a
definite construction date has not
been set, but construction should
begin within a year.
Talbert said Kenan Oil has offered
to buy out the remaining two and
a half years of his lease. But according
to Talbert and Cokely, no agreement
to buy out the remainder of the lease
has been reached yet.
Kendal Brown, a town planner,
said Kenan Oil first began the process
of applying for the special use permit
in September 1988.
The town council approved the
application for the special use permit,
which is required for the construction
of a service station in a commercial,
or town center zone, on a conditional
Kenan Oil must . agree to nine
stipulations, and if any of the con
ditions are not met the permit is
withdrawn. One of the conditions is
that construction begin by Feb. 13,
"We're just happy to be through
the (application) process and to the
point where we can move forward,"
Cokely said, "We think it will be
positive for the town of Chapel Hill."
When built, the new service center
will be the only Kenan-owned and
operated gas station in town, Cokely
The new station will be built of
brick and green tile to match the
neighboring shopping center, Glen
wood Square, which is run by Kenan
Developments, another Kenan cor
poration, Cokely said.
A town planning staff report
commended Kenan for its "sensitivity
to achieve architectural harmony
with the adjacent shopping center."
The report, dated Dec. 6, 1988,
concerned Kenan Oil's application
for a special use permit for the
Professor wins civil liberties award
By SIMONE PAM
UNC law professor Barry Nakell
has won this year's Frank Porter
Graham Award, given each year by
the North Carolina Civil Liberties
Union (NCCLU) to a North Carol
inian who has worked for the
advancement of civil liberties.
"It is a fantastic selection," said Jim
Shields, NCCLU executive director.
"Nakell exemplifies the spirit of the
North Carolina Civil Liberities
The award was first given to
Graham, former UNC president and
North Carolina governor, Shields
said. For the past 21 years, the
NCCLU has chosen a person who has
done outstanding work in the field
of civil service.
Nakell, a UNC professor of law for
19 years, has been very active in legal
cases involving prisoner rights, voting
rights and racial discrimination.
Ten years ago, Nakell founded and
became the first president of the

Nakell is also author of the book,
"The Arbitrariness of the Death
Penalty." In the book, he argues that
the death penalty is administered in
an arbitrary and discriminatory
manner through the actions of the
He has published an article in the
national Criminal Law Bulletin, "The
Cost of Capital Punishment." In this
article, he argued that capital pun
ishment is more expensive to admin

Nakell said he has worked with
Native Americans in Robeson
County for the past 16 years. One
of his more publicized cases was
against the N.C. State Board of
Elections. He objected to the law that
said Lumberton residents could vote
in both' the city and county school
board elections, but county residents
could vote in only the county
This law prevented Native Amer
icans, who lived mostly outside the
city limits, from voting in elections
that directly involved them. Nakell
brought the case before the U.S.
Court of Appeals, which ruled the law
unconstitutional, giving Native
Americans control over school deci
sions that affected them.
"I am pleased this award will bring
attention to the Civil Liberties
Union," Nakell said. "The Civil
Liberties Union is the one organiza

Rights in the Constitution. Our work

in Manning Drive vicinity
From staff reports
The University will replace 30-year-old
steam pipes near Man

project scheduled to begin March
The new steam line is part of

The pipes being replaced were
installed in 1959. Heat and cold
have cracked the insulation, allow
ing moisture to seep in and cor
rode the pipes.
Sections of Manning Drive will
be reduced from four lanes to two
lanes during portions of the
project. The University spent a

for emergency vehicles, buses and
pedestrians into consideration.
