UNC officials met with local

develop Mason Farm Road.

Neighborhood representatives and
UNC officials met behind closed doors
Monday and tried to address residents’
lingering concerns surrounding the
University’s Development Plan.
Discussions focused on proposed
graduate student housing, the proposed
access road from Mason Farm Road
into South Campus and details about
how construction will be carried out in
the Mason Farm neighborhood.
Jonathan Howes, special assistant to
the chancellor for University relations,
said UNC officials are attempting to
reach an agreement with residents so
they can present a resolution to Chapel
Hill Town Council members before
they vote on the Development Plan.
The council vote, planned for Oct. 3,

CDS: Arrests Are No
Danger to Students
By Tina Chang
Carolina Dining Services officials say
a recent string of employee arrests are
isolated incidents and that students have
no reason to fear for their safety.
But a few adjustments are being
made to the working relationship
between management and staff to pre
vent further disputes.
In addition to recendy implementing
background checks on all newly hired
workers, Aramark Corp. - the company
in charge of hiring for CDS - has been
holding meetings with managers and
employees every week and stressing the
guidelines in the employee handbook.
“We have been proactive in making
sure that the employees know about the
policies and to prevent any future
instances,” said Evan Klingman,
Aramark’s general manager of dining
In the past two months, employees
working at Lenoir Dining Hall or Chase
Hall have been involved in four sepa
rate criminal incidents. Two workers
were arrested in August, and two work
ers were taken into custody for alleged

occurrences last week.

Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld
said Americans are in for a long, brutal
struggle for justice in the aftermath of
the Sept. 11 attacks on Washington,
D.C., and New York. “It will be diffi

Underscoring the threat, Osama bin
Laden’s terrorist group warned of retal

Jews, they will be targeted,” said a state

to better accommodate Aramark’s
employees, the company also has start
ed job movements, Klingman said.
For example, Aramark might hire an
employee to work at Subway but even
tually move the worker to a different
work station if the employee is more
suited to work at the second location.
Latisha Atwater, a cashier for Ram
Cafe, has worked for CDS for one year
and said news of the physical assaults
has not intimidated her.
“I knew the people, and I knew that
it probably wouldn’t happen to me,”
CDS Director Ira Simon agrees the
incidents do not pose a danger to the
safety of employees or students.
“I think that most of these have been
domestic problems,” he said. “I’m con

Atwater said she thinks the problems
stemmed from employees reacting
poorly to their hours being cut
“They should have a meeting to tell
the employees why they are cutting the
hours instead of just cutting them and
making everybody upset,” Atwater said.
But Klingman said he didn’t think that
was the issue and said he couldn’t com-

Hoping to calm a jittery traveling pub

Mineta presented Bush with a series of rec
ommendations to tighten airline security.
He wants to make it tougher to open
cockpit doors, dramatically increase the
presence of air marshals on flights and
give the federal government a greater
role in overseeing private security firms
at airports, White House officials said.
The president also considered a num
ber of ways to revive the economy and
help laid-off workers. One option under
requesting approval to divert all motor
vehicle traffic within a one-mile radius
of the downtown business area Oct 31.
The proposal also would prohibit all
public parking within the restricted area.
Residents who live within the zone
would be granted admittance by the
police department only upon request.

By John Frank
Despite safety concerns that proved to be unrealized, 15
members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender com
munity and other student groups marched peacefully Tuesday
evening in a show of support for LGBT students on campus.
Members of the Queer Network for Change, Black Student
Movement, Carolina Union Activities Board and student gov
ernment paraded down sidewalks from South Building to
Hinton James Residence Hall holding a rainbow flag and wear
ing “celebrate diversity” stickers.
The gay pride rally was held in response to an allegedly false
calendar announcement that appeared in The Daily Tar Heel on
Monday, UNC LGBT Administrative Assistant Fred Hashagen
said. The announcement stated that a march would take place at
7 pm. in front of Hinton James, but neither the contact student list
ed in the ad, sophomore Jim Carlton, nor LGBT leaders knew of
the march. “Either someone was looking to get a group of queer
students at the same place at the same time to do something ...
or it was an attack on Jim Carlton' personally f Hashagen said.
“But for (being gay) to be an insult is inappropriate and hateful."
Carlton has no affiliation with any LGBT group on campus.
“It’s just a further example of the underlying homophobia of
the students and part of the administration on campus -and it
(needed) response,” said Hashagen, citing many less significant
cases of homophobia that have happened recently on campus.
Organizers of the event requested a University police escort
because they were concerned about possible threats to then
safety. University police Lieutenant C.E. Swain was one of two
officers to arrive at South Building as the group began to assem
ble. The officers assessed the situation and then left minutes
later at the request of organizers to scout out the Hinton James
area. The officers, two of the three on duty Tuesday night, then
left before the march started.
Melinda Manning, interim assistant dean of students, helped
Hashagen set up the event by notifying University police. “We

He also said the proposal does not
intend to curb local participation but
aims to discourage attendance of people
from outside the Chapel Hill area.
“Part of being in this community is
enjoying events such as this," Jarvies
said. “Our hope is not to stop the cele
bration. It is to minimize it.”
