own coy ocil OGC entrance for new shopping center
By TOM PARKS
The, Chapel Hill Town Council
approved a special use permit for
University Village after weighing the
interests of Glenwood Elementary
School, the developer and the town.
The council voted 8 to I in favor
of a plan created by the developer
and the town planning staff to
provide an entranceway connecting
Prestwick Road with University
Village, a proposed shopping center
and office building.
Prestwick Road will be closed
between Hamilton Road and the
entrance to University Village to
"It's a workable compromise," said
John McCormick, an attorney
representing the Board of Education.
"On behalf of the school board, we
find the resolution to be acceptable."
At a February public hearing,
McCormick said University Village,
which will be located at the N.C. 54
and Hamilton Road intersection,
would increase traffic along Hamil
ton Road and endanger the children
walking to Glenwood Elementary
Council member Nancy Preston
expressed concern about emergency
access along Hamilton Road, but
Town Planner Roger Waldon said
the barriers along Prestwick Road
could be removed if necessary.
Waldon said the resolution bal
anced the interests of the developer
for adequate access to the site and
the interests of the schoolchildren
who walk along Hamilton Road.
Council member Jim Wallace said
the town planning staffs involvement
in developing a compromise was
"Our people seem to be jumping
through hoops to be accommodat
ing," he said.
Council member David Godschalk
praised the town staff.
"I think the staff did a good job.
They have probably done the best job
they could have done."

Carrboro Board of Education to

The ordinance "streamlines" the

The council also discussed the town
budget for the next fiscal year.
Town Manager David Taylor said
the town's interim budget report
showed an $800,000 gap between
expected revenues and expenditures.
Rising costs of solid waste disposal;
the town's recycling program and:
health care insurance for town
employees are some of the reasons
for the deficit, Taylor said.
"If there is anyone out there . . .
that cares to make any comments
about the budget, please write or call
my office," he said.
Mayor Jonathan Howes said the
council was expected to approve the
final budget in late May after a public
hearing and two council work
U goveromemit drops unlawful flight charge against Hatcher
From Associated Press reports
SAN FRANCISCO The federal
government on Monday dropped a
charge of unlawful flight against
Eddie Hatcher, who is accused of
kidnapping 14 people in an N.C.
newspaper office, allowing him to
fight extradition in California courts.
Hatcher, 31, said his life would be
in danger if he were returned to North
Carolina, where he has accused local
law enforcement authorities of cor
ruption. He also contends he should
not have to face trial on state charges
after being acquitted of federal
hostage charges for the same incident.
His lawyers say Hatcher would not
have been able to make those argu
ments before being sent to North
Carolina if the federal government
had pursued its charge of unlawful
flight to avoid prosecution, filed after
he fled the state in December. That
charge is usually dismissed after a
from page 1
position. Instead, it is an effort to
"reveal something unethical," he said.
"Anything unethical should be
brought up. This needs to be revealed
so it won't happen again."
The department's recommendation
of Leloudis was not a breach of ethics
because the advertisement citing the
doctorate requirement was not a
contract, said Colin Palmer, chair
man of the history department.
"In selecting a candidate, the
department may choose a candidate
who has met some, but not all, of
the qualities advertised," Palmer said.
It is common practice in many
UNC departments to hire a candidate
who does not have a doctorate in
hand but who is well on the way to
getting the degree. Palmer said.
In fact, five of the junior professors
now in the history department were
hired before they received their
doctorate degrees, said Harry Wat
son, associate professor of history.
The degree requirement in the
advertisement did not discourage
people who were not working toward
a doctoral degree from applying,
Palmer said. "We had applications
from many who did not have a
The AHA code of ethics was
designed to guard against any blatant
breach of conduct, such as advertising
for an assistant professor and hiring
a full professor instead, Watson said.
The department is not bound by
the code of ethics of the AHA, which
Davis charged it violated, Palmer
He said the department decided to
hire Leloudis because his "record of
scholarship is superior to ones we
have seen in the past."
Leloudis is the recipient of the
Beveridge Award for a book he co
authored with several other profes
sors in the department. His work has
also been published in Historical
Review and The Journal of American
History. "When you publish in these
two journals, you're hot stuff,"
Faced with a candidate with such
achievement, Watson said, the search
committee had to debate the ques
tion: "Do you hire the person who
seems brilliant, or do you let them
go because they did not meet all of
the qualifications?" '
"Many times well go for that
person," Watson said.

But after declaring two weeks ago
that the government was unwilling to
drop the flight charge, Assistant U.S.
Attorney Jeff Bornstein asked a
federal magistrate Monday to dismiss
the charge and turn Hatcher over to
local authorities to begin extradition
Bornstein said afterward that he
had acted at the direction of the U.S.
attorney's office in Raleigh, which
had been in touch with the attorney
general's office in Washington.
"The government did not want to
get involved in North Carolina's
attempt to, in effect, kidnap Eddie
Hatcher under the ruse of this
(unlawful flight) charge," Harris
Taback, one of Hatcher's lawyers,
The lawyers said they would seek
Hatcher's release on bail and try to
convince either Calif. Gov. George
Deukmejian or the California courts
to deny extradition.
Hatcher and Timothy Jacobs, 20,
both Tuscarora Indians, were accused
of holding as many as 20 people
hostage for 10 hours in February 1988
in the offices of The Robesonian
newspaper in Lumberton.
They said they were trying to draw
attention to their claims that law
enforcement officials were involved in
drug trafficking and other corrup
tion. A task force formed by Gov.
Jim Martin concluded later that the
claims were unfounded.
The two men were first tried and
acquitted in federal court on hostage
taking and firearms charges, but then
were indicted in December on state
Jacobs, arrested in New York state j
was returned to North Carolina last
Thursday after dropping his appeal
of an extradition ruling by a New
York court. A judge in Lumberton
has set his bail at $100,000.
Hatcher was arrested in San Fran
cisco three weeks ago after unsuccess
fully seeking political asylum in the
Soviet consulate. He is being held
Supporters of Hatcher demon
strated outside the court building
before Monday's hearing and
crowded into the small courtroom for
the brief proceedings. They included
his mother, Thelma Clark, who said
afterward she was pleased that "well
get a chance to prove his allegations
are true, that he was in danger, and
his whole family."
