NATO Boosts Flights Over
Bosnia After New Shelling
NATO planes buzzed Sarajevo on Mon
day after the worst weekend of shelling in
months, and gunfire rang out at the airport
as a U.N. plane landed to pick up the
president of Indonesia.
U.N. spokesman Maj. Pierre Chavancy
said it was not clear whether the plane had
been hit. The aircraft carrying President
Suharto, his foreign minister and the com
mander oflndonesia’s armed forces landed
earlier in the day without incident.
Suharto came to Bosnia with no de
clared aim. But 90 percent of Indonesia’s
185 million people are Muslim, and his
visit was a clear sign of solidarity with the
Muslim-led Bosnian government.

Despite Criticism, Clinton
Te Meet WHh Ally of IRA
WASHINGTON, D.C.—The Clinton
administration Monday shrugged off
Britain’s objections to a St. Patrick’s Day
reception where President Clinton will greet
Geny Adams, leader of the IRA-allied
Sinn Fein party.
British Prime Minister John Major, trav
eling in the Middle East, criticized Friday’s
meeting at the White House, the first ever
between an ally of the outlawed Irish Re
publican Army and a U.S. president.
“I’m afraid that Sinn Fein are still di
rectly associated with a fully formed terror
ist organization,” Major said Sunday.
Clinton’s spokesman said it was odd
that Britain wanted Adams to be barred
from raising money in the United States
because he was allowed to conduct fund
raisers in Britain. Clinton decided last week
to allow Adams to raise money here.

Shares Keys to Life
BY ADAM GUSMAN
“Find the positive desires in your life,
know yourself and succeed.”
Billy Mills, the only American ever to
win an Olympic gold medal in the 10,000-
meter ran, shared his secret to making
dreams come true with students Monday.
Mills addressed students during the key
note speech of Native American Culture
Week, which kicked off Monday and will
last through Saturday.
“The secret is so simple, yet only one in
a thousand will follow it,” he said.
The key is developing a philosophy that
allows one to focus, Mills said. “When
you’re focused, the body, mind and spirit
work as one."
Raised on a Native American reserva
tion in South Dakota and orphaned at an
early age, Mills encountered several road
blocks in attempting to achieve his dream
of winning an Olympic gold medal.
Asa person of half-white and half-Na
tive American heritage, Mills said, he felt
rejected by both cultures.
“When I was orphaned, I wanted to be
accepted so bad,” he said. “I waited and
waited. People began to accept me, but on
their terms. When I said no, they would
beat me up. Now, I’m not stupid, but it
took me three beatings to realize who
needs friends like these?”
Mills had to overcome the low expecta

Richard Donnan, who lives next to the
property, said the proposed development
did not fit the character of the historic area.
“We’ve lived here since 1950,” he said.
“All of our four children grew up here.
Frankly, we are real upset,” Donnan said.
“They (the duplexes) did not look like
anything in the historic district,” he said.

tions of others, who doubted that he could

he said. “When somebody believed in me,
my confidence level went up.”

He said he had nothing against the pos
sibility of a sorority moving in next to his
house. “We haven’t got anything against
sororities or fraternities, we have them all
around us,” Donnan said. “My wife was a
sorority girl; my sister was a sorority girl;
and my daughter was a sorority girl—so I
have nothing against sororities.”
He said that he was not completely
opposed to development of the land but
that some changes needed to be made in
the plan. “People have a right to develop
their land, but it needs to be in harmony
with what is around,” Donnan said.
Another problem in the future of the
proposed development is a 90- year-old
house located on the property that would
Business School Construction Begins
BYHEATHER N. ROBINSON
Construction began Monday on the new
190,000-square-foot Kenan-Flagler Busi
ness School facility with anew approved
budget of $23.4 million.
The work, which was scheduled to be
gin this winter, was postponed because a
construction bid exceeded the school’s
budget by $4 million.
Katherine Phillips, media relations
manager for the Business School, said the
new budget would not bring major changes
to the building plans.
“If you didn't know that the changes
had been made, you wouldn’t know the
difference,” Phillips said.

could be constructed. The Sparrow House
was owned at one time by the Sparrow
Dairy Farm, which provided milk for all of
Chapel Hill, Kawalec said.
She said that Page applied for a demoli
tion permit last year and that the Historic
Commission approved the permit on July
14. With each demolition permit, the demo
lition is delayed for 365 days in an effort to
save the structure, she said.
However, during the Historic Commis
sion meeting March 9, Page was not defi
nite as to his plans for the Sparrow House.
Kawalec said, “At the meeting, Page and
his wife said they had had second thoughts
about demolishing the house.”

Shots struck several cars and buildings along the street.

Williamson is awaiting trial in the mental health ward of
Central Prison in Raleigh. His family said he had suffered from
paranoid schizophrenia and wasn’t getting the medication he
needed at the time of the shooting.
The discovery of two boxes of ammunition in the N.C. Botani
cal Gardens two weeks ago might be the most recent development
in the Williamson case. The .30-06 caliber ammunition was the
same caliber used by the gunman on Henderson Street, and labels
on the boxes indicate they came from a town near Clyde.
