The committee has a meeting sched uled for Tuesday, Sept. 1 9, during which five architects will make presentations of plans for downtown parking decks. Nancy Preston, a town council member and a parking committee member, said the meeting would last approximately five hours as the archi tects try to promote their different pro posals. "The presentation will detail the parking deck," Preston said as she explained that the parking committee was created to find something to fill the void left by the abandoned Rosemary Square parking and shopping complex. "The community wanted a place for parking and the committee decided to expedite that," Preston said. Mayor Jonathan Howes said the committee was created after the coun cil voted to cancel plans for Rosemary Square. This decision forced the coun cil to address alternative ways to solve the declining amount of parking in the downtown area. "The committee was started when the Rosemary Street project died," said Howes. The committee is reviewing alter nate plans for the use of the area behind the post office on Franklin Street but no final plan has been seriously discussed at this early stage, he said. "We will converse about the parking deck, but there are no concrete concep tions," said James Wallace, a council member and the committee chairman. A deck would benefit shoppers be cause of more parking space and "the merchants would probably greet the parking deck positively," Wallace said. "The best thing to do is just wait and see," he said, stressing that plans are still up in the air. "Merchants have complained about the lack of parking downtown, so a parking deck is being considered," said Art Werner, a council and committee member. A decision concerning the deck and other alternatives has not been made by the committee, Werner said. In late April, after five years, the Rosemary Square debate between the town and the developers of the contro versial hotelcondominiumparking complex ended. The development would have been constructed behind the Franklin Street post office at the corner of Rosemary and Henderson streets, but scheduling delays and a lack of interest in purchas ing condominum units led to the end of the project debate. After five extensions of the closing date deadline, the addition of two de velopment companies to the original project team and changes in the project's financial plan, the town government decided to re-examine plans for down town development. "Economics and time passed us by until the project wouldn't work," said Howes. Expanded Triangle calling plans win praise By KIMBERLEY MAXWELL Staff Writer Students and Chapel Hill merchants are pleased with a new Triangle phone service that gives them the option of calling long-distance to other Triangle cities for a standard monthly rate. The idea for such a program began with the N.C. Utilities Commission in December 1987, said Dan Long, assis tant commission attorney. The com mission wanted to start a Triangle ex tended area service in which a flat rate would be charged to customers for an unlimited number of calls during the month, he said. Three companies, GTE South, Cen tel and Southern Bell, are a part of the plan. Long said. The commission became involved when the size of the region was consid ered, Long said. The plan involves the three large, metropolitan cities of Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill. The program, which began April 10, is operating on a trial basis. "Theoretically, the commission could abandon the plan at any time if not enough people are participating," Long said. The commission will get assessments and reports every six months, tracking the program's success or failure, Long said. The next report should come in either October or November. After 18 months, a final decision will be made on the program's fate. Students have been receptive to the extended area service. 661 don't want a lot of hype.

AT&T The right choice. "It worked out pretty good," said Furmal Gorham, a junior English ma jor from Washington, N.C. "There were two of us who constantly called Dur ham and Raleigh." She said a flat rate was much more economical because she had two other roommates to split the costs. "I think it's wonderful," said Shel don Henderson, owner of Shrunken Head Boutique on Franklin Street. He has a sister living in Durham and a daughter in Raleigh, and a standard fee helps him save money, he said. Henderson said he only uses the service at home because his business does not require much contact with other Triangle businesses. Michele Gaeto, a senior psychology major from Gastonia, is also pleased with the program. She and her boy friend, a graduate student at N.C. State University, split a $12 monthly charge. "We spent $50 a month per person last year," Gaeto said. "Now it's about $6 a month." Gaeto said she noticed no difference in the quality of the calls she received from Raleigh. Not all Triangle residents have a use for the service. "Most of the numbers that I call are 800 numbers, so I don't need it," said Jack Tomkovick, owner of the Gold Connection. But the program shows the amount of positive growth in the Triangle, he said. Daycare from page 1 Carolina," Schaffner said. "It's proba bly because we have a number of facili ties trying to provide quality day care." N.C SAT scores sag From Associated Press reports RALEIGH After five straight years of modest gains, N.C. students taking the Scholastic Aptitude Test scored lower on the test than students in any other state, the College Board re ported Monday. The low ranking reflects the state's weak commitment to improving its public schools, the head of a teachers' group said. "We are at the bottom and that is a pretty sad commentary," said Sara Stewart, president of the N.C. Federa tion of Teachers. The average SAT scores of North Carolina's high school seniors fell five points to 836 this year, putting the state last in the nation from its previous rank of 49th. The average scores for high school seniors on the college entrance exam dropped in 1989 by four points on the verbal portion to 397 and by one point to 439 on the math portion. Former UNC-system President Wil liam Friday said, "This is no posture for the state of North Carolina to find itself in.
