Chapel Hill Police discovered a
robbery at the Gold Connection in
Franklin Center on 128 E. Franklin St.
at 12:58 a.m. Friday.
Jack Tomkovick, owner of the Gold
Connection, said about $80 worth of
silver jewelry was taken in the break
in. The more expensive jewelry is kept
in the store's safe, he said.
Only a minimal description of the
suspect is available, said Chapel Hill
Police Planner Jane Cousins. A total of
$800 in property damage was done to
the business and Franklin Center, the
building where the store is located.
According to the police report, glass
in a back door was broken to gain entry
into the building. The door opens into
the alley behind Franklin Center near
I lanes Arts Center.
A display case and display window
at the Gold Connection were also bro
ken. "All they were able to do was
snatch some silver," Tomkovick said.
"The glass will cost more than the
Police were patrolling on foot, and
the response time for the alarm at the

The organization's operating reve

supposed to do. No harm, no foul."
Business will continue to operate on
a normal schedule.Tomcovick added.
Plans for increased security for
Franklin Center have been discussed,
Tomkovick said. "The building may
be adding one more alarm and a
motion detector for the back."
Maurice Julian, owner of the Fran
klin Center and Jul ians College Shop,
refused to comment on any exact
plans. "We're trying to catch the thief,
not encourage him."
In a separate incident Wednesday
night, windows at the Ackland Art
Museum were broken, said Timothy
Riggs, assistant director of the mu
seum. About six small window panes
were broken during the "big party
when UNC beat Duke," Riggs said.
The museum, which is closed for
renovation, reported only slight
"It's already been repaired," he
said. "And it's insignificant in terms
of the renovation itself."
Although damage was minimal,
"it gives a warning to us that we have
to improve sec urity in that area.
"We stand on the quiet side of the
pro life issue. We don't do high prcs
sure sales. We just want (the women) to
know all the options.''
Margaret 'fhiclman, the
organization's ciicnt services director,
said PSS offered information about
abortion and abortion procedures but
would not assist or encourage a client in
finding a means to have an abortion.
About half the clientele say they
have a Christian background, Graham
said, and most ask for a free pregnancy
test. They make an appointment with
PSS and give basic information about
what services they want.
"We spend some time talking with
them and try to guide them," Graham
said. "They interpret their own results,
and if the results are positive, we just
talk to them about it. We'll hold
somebody's hand all the way and refer
her to whatever she needs."
PSS offers psychological and post
abortion counseling provided by vol
unteers who have had intensive train
ing. Of the 1 50 volunteers at the organi
zation, only a few are counselors. The
long and short-term counseling is more
like a peer counseling situation rather
than a professional situation, Graham

6 years long enough
for public defender.:-

The fat lady has finally sung for Kirk
After six years of debating and
manipulating in the courtroom, Osborn
has decided to resign as head public
defender for N.C. Judicial District 15
B, which is made up of Orange and
Osborn, who began serving as head
public defender in July 1 983, is leaving
with one year left of his second four
year term. He will step down March I
and return to private practice. Osborn
added he had no intentions of return
ing. "I'm just tired and worn out. Now
it's time for a change."
Osborn was appointed public de
fender in May 1983 by former Gov.
James Hunt and was reappointed in
1987 by Orange County .Superior Court
Judge Gordon Battle.
A native of Colorado, Osborn com
pleted his undergraduate work at the
University of Colorado and received
his master's degree from Colorado Stale
University. He also has a PhD in mathe
maticsandsiatisticsfrom UNC. In 1974
Osborn graduated from the. UNC School
of I. aw. Osborn was appointed as the.
working with victims of sexual vio
lence. Mary Ann Chap, director of !he
fX.KCC. said that PSS had given them
referrals and thai OCRCC had helped
train the PSS staff i'i working with
victims of sexual violence.
Although PSS now has nui' h larger
office space, Graham said she would
like the organization to be able to offer
more services and additional support
"We would like to see more mater
nity homes in the area, because right
now, there are none in Chapel Hill. We
need something like fostering, some
thing temporary so that we won't have
to send pregnant women to somew here
else in North Carolina."
Other services provided by PSS are
transportation to clinics and agencies,
housing for pregnant women in private
homes, free maternity and baby cloth
ing and free furniture.

and set up the first public defender's'
office in the area. ' ":
No off eial word has been given as to
who will replace Osborn. Osborn said
he believed Chapel Hill attorney Barry
Winston was the front-runner. '
"Barry Winston has been a defense
lawyer in this city for at least 25 years;
so he definitely has the needed experi-1
ence," Osborn said. Winston, along with
Osborn, was a finalist for the position
Osborn said Judicial District Bar 1 5
B needs to come up with no more than
three candidates and then the replace
ment will be appointed by Judge Battle
next month. The job pays $69,000 a
Attorney Pat Devine said she was
thinking about the job, but she has
decided not to apply for the position.
"This just was not good timing. I
wish Osborn would quit at another
Osborn said whoever took the posi
tion would have his hands full. "No
matter who takes the position, that
person is going is to have some tough
rases waiting for him when he gets
Speaking of tough rases, Osborn said
his toiiehesf r ase was prohably the one
lat year involving Joseph Armadale.
Armadale was ronvicted in Orange
County Superior Court for the 19X6
slaying of Hillsborough resident Mary
"What made that r ase so tough was
first of all having 'o go through il for
two year:.." Orborn raul "And then the
fact that my client started out as the
prime target from day one didn't help
matters ' Osboni said in spite of the
odds he did have some things going for
him, such as the work of then UNC law
students Ucup Hurger and Howard
"Those two guys were such a big
help because they did a lot of things for
me. They did practically all of the in
vestigation for me and they ran down
the w itnesses who were to testify. The
thing about it is they did all of this
without my guidance. I simply told
them to use their heads and go out and
do what needed to get done. They were
really smart guys so I knew they could
get the job done."
Even with tough cases, Osborn was
a fighter to the end according to his
"Osborn was the type of guy that
would fight you tooth and nail," Devine
Doug Webb, assistant public de
fender, agreed that Osborn was a hard
"Osborn has a great working reputa
tion because he does a very thorough
job. His dedication with his clients and
his belief in what he is doing is defi
nitely a notable asset."
Webb said he and Osborn had some
important wins, but the most notable
win was the case of North Carolina vs.
"That was a big win for Osborn and
myself because it was the first time in at
least 50 years that a case has been won
by reason of insanity here within North
Carolina," Webb said.
As Osborn exits from being public
defender, he said that the legal system
was in good shape but that there were
still some changes that could be made
to make it even better.
"What I would like to see is more
legal manpower for the poor."
