Cafe to fill spot vacated by Strong’s
BY SARA LEWKOWICZ
Residents who frequent Franklin
Street soon will be treated to the
opening of Jack Sprat Cafe, anew
eatery boasting organic coffee,
grilled paninis and more.
The cafe, to open in December,
will fill the space once inhabited
by Strongs Coffee, which closed in
Steve Dorozenski, a native of
Naples, Fla., is the owner of the
cafe. He said it will have what he
calls an “American bistro” motif.
It will serve coffee from Counter
Culture Coffee, a Durham-based
company that grows organic beans
and encourages a “holistic approach”
to the industry, according to the
company’s Web site.
The cafe will also serve pastries
and bagels in the mornings, as
well as grilled paninis, bistro sal
ads, tomato basil soup and grilled
cheese sandwiches for lunch.
Dorozenski and his wife, Lee,
moved to Chapel Hill three months
ago from Gatlinburg, Tenn., after

Study: Cells might grow back
BY STEPHANIE NOVAK
Alcohol damage to the brain
isn’t necessarily permanent.
A pair of University researchers
have discovered that organisms
experience a burst in cell regen
eration after a period of alcohol
The researchers proved the
inhibiting effects alcohol has on
regenerating brain cells or neu
rons. But their study also pro
duced new data, which illustrate
the effects of abstaining from
alcohol after becoming dependent
Though alcohol dependency
curbs neuron growth and inhibits
cell survival, the study noted that
after a week of abstinence, brain
cell proliferation increased four
Fulton Crews, director of the
Bowles Center for Alcohol Studies,
and research associate Kim Nixon
conducted the study during the
course of more than a year and
based their conclusions on experi
ments with lab rats.
“It’s the first time we’ve seen
a neuronal rebound or rebirth of
neurons,” Nixon said. “Before, we
assumed recovery in the brain was
because of glia the supporting

Police arrest suspect in break-ins

The Chapel Hill Police
Department came one step closer
Wednesday afternoon to complet

Police arrested Anthony Jerome
Dukes, 46, and charged him with
three counts of breaking and enter

according to Lt. Pat Burns.
Two of the counts stem from
break-ins reported on McCauley

The McCauley Street break

the incident on Vance Street was
reported the next day, according
to police reports.
Capt. Bob Overton said police
are investigating two other sus

in the Cameron Avenue area, and
that more arrests could follow.
“We haven’t ruled out that there
are more suspects than Mr. Dukes,”

Alcohol affects the hippocam

ciated with learning and memory.
The study concluded that
impairments caused by alcohol
can be slightly reversed through
But what causes the increase
in proliferation is not yet clear,
The discovery has several impli
cations, including the possibility of
improved treatment for those suf
fering from chronic alcoholism.
The conclusions also could
translate into improved treat
ment for people who suffer from
other psychiatric disorders such
as depression and Parkinson’s dis
ease, which is caused by the degen
eration of neurons.
“If the brain cells grow back
and are an important part of the
biological basis of recovering from
addiction, then we can design
therapies that improve brain cell
growth and the success of recovery
from addiction,” Crews said.
More than 8 percent of the adult
population is affected by chronic
alcoholism, and such new treat
ment could aid in their recovery.

growth, is a relatively new discov
Scientific theory has been based
for many years on the “use ’em or

According to police reports,
there have been more than 20
reported breaking and entering
incidents since mid-October.
“Asa general rule, when you
have a lot of break-ins in a general
area, there’s usually a small pool of
people responsible,” said Curran.
Curran said the majority of
break-ins are occurring in rental

devices have been the items most
He added that Cameron
Avenue’s proximity to downtown
might account for the concentra
tion of break-ins in the area.
“With Cameron Avenue, we have
had a persistent trend of property
crime,” he said.

that once a brain cell is gone, it’s

Recent studies have shown that
neurons do continue developing
through adult life. And Nixon
and Crews’ experiment is unique
because it relates neurogenesis
with alcohol abstinence.
Cell growth also is associated
with physical activities, such as
running, as well as learning and
pharmacological agents such as
antidepressants, Nixon said.

“If they can find a way to
increase cell proliferation in adult
humans that would be huge,” said
Crews and Nixon have worked
together for four years researching
topics of this nature.
But their work is not over yet
because their experiment raises
questions about the mechanism
that regulates cell regeneration
and the correlation between cell
death and cell birth, Nixon said.
“When you discover anew
mechanism, it can open all sorts of
opportunities for new treatment.”

Curran said the best way to pre
