EastCare is Pitt County Me
morial Hospital's air ambulance
and on Sunday. April 8, they ele
bra ted their fifth year oi service to
eastern North Carolina.
More than 1,300 former pa-
tients, emergency medical service
(EMS) personnel, family and
fnends were invited to attend the
celebration with the EastCare statt
on the field beside the Brody
Medical Sciences Building.
A ceremony at 2:30 p m. was
held that included a brief history
of EastCare, speeches by former
patientsand F MS personnel thank
ing the EastCare Staff tor their
service and the dedication of the
celebration to the patients that
made the last five years possible.
One termer patient ot Roper.
N C, Sidney W. Spruill called on
EastCare in May of 1986. He had
suffered a heartattack on the job in
Plymouth. The trip that would
normally take J5 to 40 minutes
took roughly seventeen minutes
by way oi the EastC are helicopter.

These same weirds were shared by
manv on Sunday as patients
thanked those that helped them
when thev too called on EastCare.
In 1984, Pitt County Hospital
and the ECU School of Medicine
saw an increasing need tor rapid
transport lo the hospital. With a
shorter time between the scene of
the accident and the onset of hos-
pital care, the chance of survival is
increased. This is one of the main
purposes of EastC are.
On April 8, 1985, EastCare
received its first call. Since that
first flight, they have served 2100
more. Not all of the past 2100 calls
have been successes. On January
S. 1987, the EastCare helicopter
crashed in ones County killing all
tour people aboard, the pilot, the
two flight nurse's and the young
patient. Ik-cause that accident
killed their management group,
the EastCare program had to re-
build. Three months later, thev
returned to service.

EastCare is staffed with ten
flight nurses, two doctors, four
pilots and one mechanic. They
must first go through a land and

labs and must have at least two
years of ICL training.
EastCare receives an average
et4i Vails a month and serves a 120
mile radius ol 36 counties in east-
ern North Carolina.
Patients are truly what
EastCare is dedicated to says

On April 29 the two deejays were talking
jokingly, about faculty members they'd like to see
teaching classes in the nude As part of the joke, they
ailed a department secretary to ask ton the air
whether a particular faculty member would bo teach-
ing nude in the fall semester.
Their comments inflamed Dr. Mane Parr.
who heads both ECU's Department of Women's
Studies and the Department of Communications
She charged that the two were guilty of sexual har-
assment and recommended that the ECl Media
Board punish them
Aware that they had offended sensibilities
more than usual. Carter and Burlev wrote letters ot
apology to the parries concerned WZMB General
Managt r -ndv Forbis de ided to punish the duo
not for their comments, but for related violations of
station policy b suspending them for four weeks
I lowev er. the ECl Media Board judged this punish-
ment insufficiently harsh, and met ma closed session
the following rhursday (during which the Board
took testimon) trom Carter Bien, Forbis and Fair) to
discuss the incident. When it reopened the session,
the Board took a extremely unusual action: it fired
both deejays
Specifically, the Board voted to fire Carter
and Burlev pursuant to two supposed violations of
the Media Board's by-laws. These were "guilty of
gross misconduct or conduct unbecoming an East
Carolina I niversity employee" and "participation
in any action that would in any way seriously disrupt
or disturb the normal operation of the media
1 he Board cannot make a reasonable deci-
sion on the first count. I here is ample room to doubt
the Board- c ntention that c arter and Burley con-
ducted themselves unethically or engaged in con-
duct unbecoming a University employee" all the
more so because the Board never heard the offending
broadcast, never asked to hear the deejays' tape of
the broadcast (though they were aware of the tape's
existence), and never asked tor a transcript of the
broadcast. If they had not heard what the deejays
said, then thev could not fairly pass judgement
What remains of the Board's case, then, rests
on the second count Presumably, Carter and Burlev
are guilty under this count hei ause their putting the
English Department se retary on the air without her
consent violates both FCC policy and federal law It
the EC enforced that poKcy which it does only
very rarely then it could refuse to renew WZMB's
broadcasting license. 1 lowever, it would be tar more
likely that the FCC would at worst reprimand the
station. especialU since WZMB is student-run. it
indeed thev chose to act at all. Therefore, Carter and
Bien participated in an action that could seriously
disrupt or disturb the normal operation of the media
but it is not hkelv that the action would do so. The
difference is both obvious and crucial, but it appar-
ently escaped the Media Board.
rhougharter and Bien technically vio-
lated policy firing the duo is unjustifiable. Students
participate in student media knowing that thev will
make mistakes, and hoping that thev will have a
chance to learn trom these mistakes before thev go
out into the real world It the Board was going to
overridel should hav done so in the interest
of instituting more constructive punitive measures
In fact, Carter and Burlev themselves sug-
gested a more reasonable punishment to the Board.
Stating the.r desire to make amends, thev contended
that a more sensible penalt) would have been a
shorter suspension coupled with an obligation to
tape public service announcements dealing with
rape and or sexual harassment
Evidently, the Board disagreed, but it is
difficult to say wh In w hat way is firing the pair a
bettor solution? It doesn't teach thorn anything use-
ful More importantly, it gics them no chance to
make public reparations to anyone thev might have
wronged or ottencied

Editorial Columnist
The U.S. Senate has just passed
a sweeping revision of the Clean
Air Act the first real improve-
ment in 20 years. The bill has some
positive points. It puts the first
controls ever on factory and busi-
ness air emissions of toxic chemi-
cals, and specifically mandates a
50 percent cut in 10 years in sulfur
dioxide emissions (gases that
cause1 acid rain and contribute to
the greenhouse effect and ozone
layer deterioration). The bill also
slightly tightens auto emissions
and other urban smog controls
In reality, however, the new
bill must be considered a dismal
compromise between the Amen
can public's need tor cleaner air
and the government's desire to
protect big business The bill "re
moves the mandatory second
round ot tough tailpipe standards
and completely eliminates any
requirements to clean up emis-
sions of carbon dioxide In addi
tion, there is a weakening of a pro
gram tor alternative or clean mo-
tor fuels 1 he i omprouusc hill also

the government to clean up by
taking legal action against the fed
eral government. Further, it al

who live around the polluted site

The new bill, originated by
President Bush, pits the interests
of public health and environ-
mental quahrv against the narrow
self-interest of special interests
Big Oil, Big Auto, Big Coal and Big
Utilities At a time when cleaner
motor vehicles are necessarily the
cornerstone of any serious smog
control plan, the new bill allows
the industry to keep producing
cars whoso fuel consumption
ranks as gluttony even by today's
standards By allowing the auto

itsown c onstiluhonon at least one point. Section - of

Whether intentionally or not, firing C arter

policy of WZMB (and, by extension, the other cam-
pus media) a crude method, but potentially quite
effective in the wrong hands Far from ensuring that
the media will be ' free and respon I le the Board's
sledgehammer censorship makes the media decid-

which students must tear tor their jobs it they dare
sav anything that might be deemed offensive or
embarrassing to the Board, the administration or the
faculty, or which might somehow be construed as
harassment or dis rimination in the loosest sensesof
those words.
The bottom line is this: the members of the
Media Board who voted to tire Carter and Burlev
never heard the broadcast in question, nor did thev
so much as ask to hear a tape or read a transcript vi
that broadcast. If follows that the Media Board was
negligent and based its findings entirely on hearsay.
It iscommon knowledge among the student
media that several members ot the Media Board,as
well as certain administrators influential with the
Board, find much of arter's published writing (as
"Chippy Bonehead") personally offensive Viewed
in the light ol this knowledge, one wonders whether
the Board waslessconcerned withdomg justicethan

'Fathers will never be obsolete'

"I've boon brooding about the
fact that men are becoming obso-
lete in today's society said my
friend Stan "We're not needed to
make babies or business decisions
anymore. Basically, we're just
asked to take out the garbage

feel that way With sperm banks

able, women don't need the act of

know about one another.
And no matter ROW much
technology changes our tradi-
tional roles in society, we always
will need each other.
Last week, my father at-
tempted to adopt a 12-year-old
Clean air
boy, an act that caused immediate
uproar in a family full of women.
My father, 63, has always
wanted a son. What he got was
seven daughters, a fact that he
never quite accepted.
Through the years, he has
occasionally "helped" voungmen
from China, putting them through
school and lavishing the time and
attention on them that he never
gave'his daughters.
It was painful to see, and as the
oldest of the seven girls, 1 probably
am further along in accepting that
this behavior is my father's prob-
lem, and has nothing to do with
me, than any of my sisters are.
Still, when 1 learned that my
dad wanted to formally adopt a
young bov, I felt a stab in the heart
1 hadn't experienced in a long time.
It was the remembered pain of
an adolescent girl who wanted her
father to show love and approval
of her, but never quite found the
kev to make it happen.
After so many vears. I thought
the wish for acceptance was re-
solved. How could my lather see
me for who 1 am, when he kept
looking for himself in young men
he wished were his sons1
This time, my father met a
Chinese woman in her 40s whose
visa will soon expire, and the
woman was willing to give up
parental rights to her son because"
she thought she would be better
marriage material to a U.S. citizen
without a child in tow.
So my father si id he'd take
the bov. without asking my
mother. When my mom, who's
60, learned what had happened,
she asked all the daughters what
she should do.
It she did not sign the adop-
tion papers, she was afraid my
father would simplv lose his tem-
per and disappear. If she signed,
she'd be committed to rearing a
child she'd never met.
We all urged her to say no,
regardless of the outcome
Atter much agonizing, mv
mother did just that. And with-
out dissent, mv father agreed to
drop the adoption proceedings.
The entire family was
shocked Atter vears ot unrelent-
ing resentment against mv
mother, fate, but most of all,
against himself, my father ac-
cepted the fact that he was not
going to have a son.
We are always on our way to
a miracle, and my father's change
of heart was a reminder that
people respond u hen weareilear
Continued from page I
on where we stand.
My mother said "no" with a
conviction that could not be ques-
tioned. After 37 years of marriage
to a man who thought sons were
moredesirable than daughters, my
mother had grown enough to call
that thought what it is � garbage.
I am relieved for my mother,
and the family, that my father
chose not to press the issue. Most
of all, I am relieved for the boy
whose name I do not even know.
1 cannot judge a stranger's
motivation for giving up her son
I'erhaps she thought he would
have a better life with an estab-
lished family here than in China.
I'erhaps she thought only of her-
Either way, it would not have
been in the best interests of the
child to enter a family where the

"appeasing industry at theexpensc
of public health
During the Reagan era. the
FTA repeatedly minimized and
even belittled public concerns
about the cancer causing potential
of our modern supply of air, food,
and water Put in the late 1980's,as
Reagan's vainglorious term came
to an end, the EPA began empha-
sizing a novel strategy: blame na-
ture. First they began citing the
problem of "natural carcinogens
in food, telling the public that there
were ust as much nasty things in
potato salad as in Twinkiesor other
iunk foods. Next the agency sought
to incriminate natural carcinogens
in air, namelv radon, the radioac-
tive gas that seeps from the ground
and enters millions of homes na-
How do we account for EPA's
There is a tendency among, EPA
officials and corporate representa
lives to trivialize cancer risks, it
you cater to the view that nature is
not benign, or even worse, that
"everything causes cancer then
you Stop try mg to control environ-
mental cancer hazards altogether.
And that would be sheer folly.
Part ol the problem with air
pollution seems to be a lack ot
resolve on the part of our "envi-
ronmental president Compared
to his predecessor who said trees
were the primary source ot air pol-
lution George Push otters a
breath of fresh air. Put at this junc-
tureour nation needsa strong, fresh
wind. We should be building
smogless cars that run on ethanoi
and electricity. We should also
reorient our industry toward the
ecologically sensible, renewable
� � � i resources such as the sun.
Onl when we move in this more
sustainable direction can we re-
ally begin cleaning up the envi-

mosphere ore difficult Accord-
ing to the American lung Asso-

dustries represent tangible

inflicting about $40 billion in
health care annually. Though
American businesses will have to
pa more tor the new clean air
bill, they will still get off rela-
tively cheaply. The cost of envi-
ronmental damage and the dam-
age to our lungs still exceeds any
cost taken up through the conser-
vation efforts of business and in-
sudden zeal to warn people about
the "C" word which the agency
has generally avoided? One rea-
son mav be that big business's
power over EPA is bigger than
most people realize. Moreover, the
agency stands to benefit by point-
ing to "natural causes" of mortal-
ity rather than to artificial or man-
made causes
Radon is a case in point. This
"soil pollution" is considered the
most deadly carcinogen under
FPA's jurisdiction even dioxin
pales by comparison Yet no de-
finitive evidence has shown that
radon in homes causes lung can-
cer. Of course, "no proof is not by
anv means "no hazard and
whether the gas actually causes
cancer i n homes remains to be seen.
Put EPA has presented radon as it
it were an established health haz-
ard. Laying the blame on radon
for lung cancer caused by tobacco
smoke or industrial pollution
helps take the heat off the real
culprits, including the radioactive
particles routinely released from
nuclear power plantsand continu-
ally contaminating our the food
chain in the form of fallout.
Because radon is a "crime
without blame the issue is es-
sentially a win-win situation for
legislators. No politician, indus-
try or policy decision is at fault.
Thus, as Teresa Opheim writes in
a 1988 issue of litne Reader, legisla-
tors emerge as "environmental
crusaders to their constituents
while favoring; legislation that
won't endanger their businessand
industry The situation is remi-
niscent of the recent hype over
natural carcinogens in food, which
has diverted attention from the
potential haz-ardsof the thousands
of artificial additives in the U.S.
food supply.
Again, it's not that these sub-
stances or gases are harmless; in-
deed, they may be quite harmful,
at least at certain levels of expo-
sure. Problem is, the dispropor-
tionate amount of attention given
by EPA to natural carcinogens
diverts society's attention from
serious hazards of human origin,
such as pesticides and mercury.

Bailout will cost taxpayers
more than estimated
Bush administration conceded that the savings-and loan
bailout will cost taxpayers more
than previously estimated.
rhere's no question that the
i ost isin reasingand wc II have to
take that into account in decidmp
future actions said White I louse
spokesman Martin Fitzwater
His comments were in re
sponse to Friday's report by the
General Accounting Office an
in estigatory arm ol (Congress
that the 10-year cost oi the pro-
gram would be $243 billion in
stead of the $166 billion estimated
by the administration
Furthermore, the �AO said,
the 30-year cost of the program
could reach $325 billion.
"We don't have an analysis
either to endorse or reject theGAO
numbers, except to say there
clearly is going to be additional
costs Fitwater said. "Those
numers will have to be decided
upon at some point
1 itwater rejected as "total
nonsense" the contention b) C har
lesBowsher.thet .AC comptrol-
ler general, that the administra-
tion had deliberately understated
the cost i the bailout
Bowsher, interviewed on
NBC'S "Meet the Press said the
bush administration had set an
artificallv low cost on the bailout
so the government could appear
to meet deficit-reduction targets
Fitzwater said the Resolution
Trust Co, set up to oversee the
restructuring of the S&L industry,
had so far used about $10 billion
of the $50 billion it was provided
under that original bailout legis-
lation signed by Bush last sum-
"The best thing to do, we be-
lieve, is to work speedily with the
funds and the progress we now
have in place the spokesman
"At this time there is not
enough information to make a
reliable estimate of how much
more may be required Many fac-
tors will determine if we need
more funds including loss ra-
tios interest rates, asset sales, et
cetera litwater said
Asked if the net effect would
be an increase in the federal defi-
cit, Fitzwater said "There is al-
wavs that consequence. If vou have
to increase amounts, you have a
responding impact on the deficit
and budgetary considerations "
Bowsher has said that the extra

Sitting on a Fence
Sporadic ramblings of a crazed road trip warrior
By John Tucker
Assistant Features Editor
Every college student at one
time or another experiences what
is known at first as "the road trip"
but what can often be more appro-
priately termed "the fiasco
Now, a road trip is not some
thing to be taken lightly. If you
have the right attitude when you
get out on the road, no matter how
bad the trip turns out, something
positive can be extracted
After all, misery loves com-
pany, and sometimes it can he fun
to be in the company ot misery.
Recently, the opportunity to
get out of Gunkvilfe and see the
world was thrust upon me bo-
ran4 of mv large amount of good
fortune. Maybe you can relate to
what 1 went through.
The first element of a road trip
are the basic ingredients. These
ingredients are usually, a sturdy
car ia Chevette), a sturdy driver
(or two), sturdy compatriots
(friendsof misery), beer (optional),
and of course.a proposed destina-
tion (unknown).
.t to say these are the inl
things you need, other things, like
money, help. But if vou have these
basics, you're good to go.
Most college road trips start
when you least expect them. Spon-
taneity is a key to a reckless road
trip with top-drawer results.
Usually it's the one idiot that s
good at talking people into some
thing that can set the trip off with
"the plan
The plan is usually developed,
expressed and catalyzed in the
time span of a few brief seconds.
1 et's say Wes is our compatriot
catalyst and the plan is something
to this effect: Hey, let's go to
Raleigh and see this band that my
friend told me was good
Usually that's enough to con-
jure up a motley crew oi slobber-
ing buffoons to enjoy each others
compatriotism. A few beers in the
gut sometimes helps though.
The next step is acquiring a
vehicle for the fateful journey. This
process relies on who has the big-
gest junk car and the credit card
for gas with it.
Lef'ssay frank istheonewho
owns the Chevette and although
he doesn't have a gas credit card
his buddy Dave does. Dave, oi
course is the only one besides
yourself who can drive because
he hasn't gotten a DUl yet.
there is only one last charac-
ter in the crew. His name is Guy
and his trademark is complain-
ing. He's the one that sleeps most
oi the trip and only awakens to
whine when something goes
wrong. It's always great to havea
Guy on the trip because everyone
can heap their frustration on him
when things realty get bad.
The brainchild Wes is the one,
naturally, that has no money at all.
He's the same one that always
comes up with the great ideaslike,
"let's eat or "let's go spend five
bucks to see this band Of course,
the most common thing he says is,
spot me until we get back to
Dave, because he is driving, is
the most stressed out of the crew.
Everyone else iscuttingup, throw-
ing paper or whatever, and Dave
is stuck behind the wheel in an
apprehensive stupor, yelling at
who ever is acting like the biggest
idiot at the time.
Now that we've established
the characters of this melodrama,
lefs come up with some of the
various scenarios that occur.
My favorite one is, after get-
ting lost and ending up in some
backwoods place called Hogtown,
you finally arrive at your destina-
tion to find that the reason why
you made the road trip no longer
This is followed closely by the
realization that you can not locate
the person you were supposed to
stay with, or you're out in the cold
becauseyoudidn't haveanywhere
to stay m the first place.
If you are lucky and you do
have a place to stay, you always
have to contend with the couch,
pillow and blanket fight. Guy
usually vvins this contest because
if he doesn't get a couch, then he
cries all night and nobody sleeps.
Another fight that is always
good for a little action is the fight
tor the coveted front seat. "Shot-
gun" is alwavs called normally,
but on road trips it seems like it is
every man for himself.
Clothes are another item that
almost always become a problem
on the trip. Mostof the time no one
brings enough clothes to last the
whole trip. If you are lucky, and
do happen to prepare, often you
end up wearing the same clothes
all weekend anyway because
everyone else has yours on.
Money seems like a perpetual
problem. There's always those
special expenditures mat pop up
out of nowhere thafnoone likes to
pick up. Flat tires are a good ex-
ample of a problem that not only
makes arrival slightly later than
expected,but also takes a dent out
off the wallet
Overall though, whatever
happens, humor abounds
throughout the trip. The unusual
circumstances you arecontinualJy
forced to cope with make what-
ever happens an always Interest'

Aboul the time they got hit with a $110,000 repair bill last fall,
church officials discovered 1,200 pounds of bird droppings when they
went to clean the 90 toot boll lower.
The Rev. William J Eakins, the church rector,saw the droppings as
a sort of manna from heaven
When state agricultural tests confirmed the droppings were rich in
organic matter and nitrogen, Eakins suggested selling them in 3-pound
bags for $3 each to help raise the $35,000 m repair costs not covered bv
