Latashia M. Watson accepted a
plea bargain Tuesday in Onslow
County Superior Court just before
a jury was to begin hearing open-
ing statements on whether she com-
mitted second-degree murder. Judge
James R. Strickland sentenced Ms.
Watson to between three and 4 12
years in prison.
On March 31 last year, Onslow
rescue workers responded to a call
that Darien Jenkins had stopped
breathing. His mother had been seen
carrying the child from another
home earlier, and doctors later de-
termined, based on the child's body
temperature, that the child had been
dead about six hours.

ECU's Election Committee, made
up of 19 poll takers, chair and vice chair
of the elections committee, met at 6
p.m. last night in Mendenhall to hear
candidates' complaints.
Student Government Association
(SGA) Speaker Harry Bray announced
that two complaints had been filed for
the committee to review. Sixteen mem-
bers of the committee were present,
as well as SGA Attorney General Dawn
In a Monday, April 8th meeting
with Dean of Students Ron Speier and
election candidates, the time for filing
complaints had been extended, but
Bray said that was not an official meet-
ing and therefore, the additional com-
plaints filed against the election pro-
cess by Secretarial candidate J. Miles
Layton and Presidential candidate John
Lynch would not be heard.
Lynch's original complaint was the
first to be heard.
In addressing his complaint Lynch
said he was unable to obtain a copy of
the polling results, that there were
"multiple problems at the polling
places and that student IDs were not
marked properly or at all. The commit-
tee voted against all three counts and
did not call for a new election. Lynch
said he will appeal the decision today.
"I definitely disagree Lynch said
following the meeting. "That's why I
plan to file a complaint to the review
board tomorrow. My major disagree-
ment is with their inability to hear my
full complaint.
"The official complaint that the
Election Committee went through, the
purpose of that was not to call for an-
other election. That complaint was
made to inform that problems were
spotted in the election process. In a
way, I understand why they voted no
(to a new election), but that's not what

The Greenville Police Depart-
ment is ready to throw ECU faculty
and students behind bars.
The police department along
with the Inter-Fraternity Council
(IFC) and Panhellenic Council are
sponsoring a "Jail Bail" to raise funds
for the Special Olympics. Students
and faculty will be thrown in jail by
a S.W.A.T team and will not be able
to be released until a donation or
"bail" is posted.
Throughout the year the police
department has participated in sev-
eral fund-raising activities for the
Special Olympics. Their goal is to
raise $50,000.
Dr. Ronald Speier, dean of stu-
dents, supports the fundraising
"I don't mind cooperating with
the program Speier said. "This

Club owner jailed in murder-for-hire scheme
Amy L. Royster
Staff Writer
The part owner of a Greenville nightclub, fre-
ouented by students, spent the weekend in jail charged
with three counts to solicit murder and two counts to
solicit maiming, before she posted bail Tuesday.
According to Detective John Teal, of the Greenville
Police Department, (the Greenville Police Report was
not available by press time) Brenda Malaguti, partial
owner of the Texas Two Step, located on N. Green
St was arrested Saturday.
Malaguti was charged with soliciting to hire some-
one to murder or maim her former stepson Frank
Fleming of 1000 E. 10th St. and former business as-
sociate Dwight Lee McLeod of 610 Cotanche St.
Detective Teal said that Malaguti was released on
a $105,000 bond Tuesday.
Detective Teal said that the Greenville Police De-
Hootie! Hootie! Hootiepage

partment began investigating Malaguti after the per-
son she allegedly solicited to hire came forward and
spoke to the police.
"One of the victims who was threatened came to
us and felt that his life was in danger Teal said. "A
person she solicited also came to the police
The investigation was kept out of the media un-
til the investigating officers had established a case.
"It (the investigation) was pretty standard for the
type of complaint being investigated Teal said. "You
want to get a grip on the facts before it is a large
public item
According to Teal, the investigation lasted approxi-
mately six to eight weeks before Malaguti's arrest.
Teal said that before Malaguti contacted her at-
torneys Saturday, she made a brief statement to the
police in which she denied all allegations.
Detective Teal said that in two to three weeks.

Career Services will introduce this
event to campus as one of their many
services to help further the career goals
of students. Other events being offered

The Expo is geared toward all stu-

of a career. Over 40 employers will at-
tend this Expo and will share informa-
tion to those interested in their orga-
This will be an informal way to
get information about prospective em-
ployers. Whether you are a freshman
or a senior, the Expo will be beneficial
for everyone.
Tables will be set up from 10 a.m.
until 12:30 p. m. in front of the Stu-

Representatives from various or-
ganizations will be there to answer
questions, tell about their application

reers with their organization and why
they enjoy working for that firm.
Since career development begins
with networking, this event and the
other two events will allow students
to welcome these guests to campus and
make a positive impression for ECU.
Dr. James Westmoreland, director
of career services, said these organiza-
tions will have information that will
directly or indirectly affect your career
"The Expo will allow students to
be informed about the career search
and development" Westmoreland said.
"It is put in a place where people will
go by and be exposed to ideas about
their career development. Students

This ECU drama student worked
with Julia Roberts, Andy Griffith,
Keith Carradine among others in
some of the country's most popular
television shows and films before re-
turning to campus this past fall.
Hoisting a gargantuan bookbag
onto the desk while brushing pale
wisps of hair from her brilliant blue
eyes, the small, sturdy student sighed
and said, " This terrifies me. I don't
know why anyone would be inter-
ested in me
A Carteret County native,
Brinley Vickers, always wanted to act
Beginning at age six, she performed
regularly in local and school produc-
tions. She enjoyed both science and
acting in high school. When the 17
year oM freshman arrived at ECU in
1984, pressure from her parents to
"use your brain and have a career
resulted in her decision to major in
"If I'd stayed in science, I could
have gotten out and made $50,000 a
year, " Vickers said. "That was very
appealing to my parents when com-
pared to my 'pounding the pave-
ments' for a commercial
For two years, Vickers concen-
trated on her studies and for the first
time since she was six, was not in-
volved in the theater at all. She
missed the opportunity to be creative
and tried out for a campus produc-
"I got the part and loved it
Vickers said. "After working at other
things, I knew this was what would
keep me stable
For another year and a half,
Vickers continued to pursue her sci-
ence degree while also performing in
various theatrics. Deciding finally to
study acting full-time, the 21 yr. old
Vickers interviewed for the profes-
sional acting program and was ac-

on the shows I did. Don Biehn (ECU

tor) was instrumental in getting me
to trust myself. I got a lot of oppor-
tunities in school, and I was in great
Citing the constant struggle to
earn enough money to pay the bills
while attending classes full-time and
spending most evenings in rehears-
als, Vickers eventually dropped out
of the acting program.
"Money was always a problem
Vickers said. "1 had to work full-time.
You can't just go to class. You've got
to be available for workshops and re-
hearsals too. I couldn't work that
hard and be fully committed to the
acting. After a while, I'd lost my life
Settling in Wilmington, a town
known for its strong acting commu-
nity, Vickers' goal was to perform at
historic Thalian Hall. But with debts
to pay, she became manager of a res-
Though she enjoyed the chal-
lenges of her job immensely, after
two years away from the stage, de-
pression set in.
"I was a basket case without a
creative outlet Vickers said. "I quit
my job and in 3 days I got an agent,
head shots and the lead in a
mainstage production at Thalian Hall
with a professional acting company.
It was like winning the lottery
Her first professional job made
her realize how college had spoiled
her. Instead of just acting her role,
she was now expected to help with
publicity, scenery and other facets of
the production.
"I 'd only studied acting before
Vickers said. "This made me realize
that the more you know about all as-
pects of theater, the more hirable you
are. I knew I needed to come back
and learn the backstage stuff
But the acting itself went well.
"I was in great shape from my
ECU days, and I got great roles
Vickers said. "I'm not a natural

Looking back, Vickers realizes
she was fortunate that those she
worked with were willing to help her
learn what she had missed in leav-

clear to Vickers that fame is an un-

could not even walk down the street.

When she graduates, she will
again pursue an acting career. This
time, having taken advantage of all
that college has to offer her, it
should be easier. Vickers said she
has confidence in ECU'S acting pro-

Shearin for the well-rounded pro

Our View
Corrupted with
and deceit,
SGA elections
our distrust in
Look at the past and look toward the future.
This year's SGA elections give truth to the saying that all
politics are corrupt
Someone is responsible for the negligent and unjust treat-
ment given to every student who ever believed SGA runs by a
democratic system. TEC wants to see justice. We want action
against the students involved in this horrible mishap.
There was obviously tampering with the March 27th elec-
tions and our advice is to throw the book at the culprits. TEC
can't do it all, we can't press charges against anyone. We can't
even say who's responsible, but others can. It's all been talked
about before, but we want to see something done. Stop talking
and start moving. We looked up the numbers, we told you the
truth, someone else has to pick up the ball. The rumor mill
that runs rampant throughout SGA and this campus is tre-
mendous. There are students who know the truth - stand up
and let it be known. Speak out and identify who is wrong,
who's playing dirty and who wants to make SGA clean in the
future. If the people who know don't speak out, who will?
Change the system.
An outside organization, administrator or anyone who can
be deemed as not having special interests of any kind should
be appointed to watch this process that has been neglected
and taken advantage df for who knows how many years. Look
up the records (if you can find them) and see for yourself. In
his election report, Election Chair Penn Crawford called for
extra poll takers possibly just to keep an eye on the box. Who
would appoint this person? Certainly someone other than those
involved with SGA, we would hope.
We can't do it all, and students are going to get pretty sick
of hearing about this year's election after a few editions. Don't
worry, we'll tell you what happens in the end, but when you
look at SGA's past, change is hard to come by as far as regula-
tions are concerned.
Rules are broken everywhere. Who do the elections people
have to answer to anyway? The members of their own organi-
zation and otherwise, basically no one. Too many questions
and intentions and not enough action are the problems. Every-
one involved appears to be trying to find a timely solution,
don't wait until it's too late.
Make SGA work for everyone.

Montana is for militants
Letters to the Editor
Looking forward to the day that
you will be able to afford to go to
the Middle East and see international
terrorism first hand? Do you have
your kids dress up like suicide bomb-
ers every year with little pretend
sticks of dynamite stuffed their
trench coats and trick-or-treat bags?
Do believe that there is in fact a bib-
lical reference to Molitoff Cocktails?
Well, do we have the solution for you.
Save your money and quit your
dreaming there is just the place for
you here in the good old U.S. of A.
It's called Montana and as an added
bonus we'll even throw in some Griz-
zly bears.
Montana has now become the
hub for many of America's bright and
up and coming militant dysfunctional
members of society. There are two
recent indications and examples of
The first example is the siege in
the plains of a complex occupied by
a group calling themselves the Free-
men. They are refusing to give up
some of their members to federal law
enforcement agents who wish to
press charges on them for cheating
on their taxes and counterfeiting.
They are armed to the teeth and they
aren't coming out. There has been
some attempted negotiations, but at
this point things are not going well.
The feds are reluctant to do anything
drastic because of the heat they have
come under in recent times about the
events at Ruby Ridge and near Waco,
Texas a few years ago. It's amazing
just how many groups that are armed
to the teeth, are radical religious
groups and are opposed to the gov-
ernment, mee"t their demise in a gov-
Chrls Arline
Senior Opinion Cotumnltt
ernment siege.
The second example is the most
notorious terrorist in American his-
tory; the Unabomber. This man dis-
appeared into the Rocky Mountains
of western Montana 25 years ago.
Since that time he has made prac-
tice of sending mail bombs to people
who are in high positions within the
intelligence fields. He baffled federal
law enforcement officials for a period
spanning three decades as his work
left three people dead and 22 people
injured or maimed. They had checked
into over 200 suspects and fielded
over 20,000 calls to the Unabomber
hotline (1-800-701-BOMB). The truth
of the matter is that the only way
that they got him was that he was
turned in by his brother.
There is one reason why Mon-
tana is so lucrative to these people
of less than traditional American
beliefs: the space. There is plenty of
it and with that comes the privacy
they need to practice their lifestyles
and not be interrupted or receive
immediate opposition. If there are no
neighbors to look over your fence
and tell you what you are doing is
wrong then why would you, to bor-
row a lyric from Carlos Santana,
change your evil ways.
The people that are most hurt
indirectly by what is going on are the
other residents of the state. They
stand to suffer in their back pock-
ets. One state official speculates that
the state stands to lose between $30-
$40 million in tourist related tax rev-
enues in the next two years as a re-
sult of the negative publicity sur-
rounding these two ordeals. Their
biggest concern is that people will
be afraid to go there.
Hey, why not make the nut
cases a featured attraction. If my
dog had two heads you'd better be-
lieve I'd charge people to see him.
It's not hurting anyone to show
them off and if they truly believe
that their actions, practices and
beliefs are good then they won't be
too embarrassed to show them off
freely as long as we don't make them
change anything.
I would like to announce my can-
didacy for the position of the state
of Montana's tourism director. Hey,
I've even got some slogans ready to
go already. How about "Come to Mon-
tana, we've got the biggest and flaki-
est nuts in the nation" or "Come visit
Montana, there is plenty of fresh
clean air, it has all the comforts of
home, and the terrorists speak En-
glish Just remember to bring your
Visa card because they don't take
militant Christian militias lightly and
they don't take American Express.
Football gives the name
To the Editor,
I was intrigued by the article you
ran last week regarding the raise
head football coach Steve Logan has
received. Personally, I feel that coach
Logan deserves such a reward for his
hard work and unfailing loyalty to
our university. Without football, the
athletic department would be unable
to fund many of the sports that do
not generate revenue. The football
program is also responsible for be-
ing ambassadors for our university
to those who know nothing of East
Carolina except for what they see of
our football team. For many people,
the only reason they recognize the
name of East Carolina is the success-
ful record we possess. Football also
generates an unexplainable energy
on campus by promoting unity and
providing a common interest between
all students. Not only are students
excited by the football program, but
alumni have also enjoyed the contin-
ued success of Steve Logan and his
Pirates. Nothing can stimulate
alumni gifts to our university more
than a winning team. Coach Logan
has not only worked hard, but he has
brought overwhelming results to the
East Carolina football program. Com-
ing off of a season with a 9-3 record
and a Liberty Bowl victory, not to
mention one of the finest incoming
recruiting classes in East Carolina
football history; coach Logan de-
serves this reward. I applaud this
university's administration for hav-
ing the good sense to recognize the
need to have a successful athletic
program and to act on their recogni-
tion of such a need
Chuck Southerland
Support is necessary
To the Editor,
In the Tuesday, March 26, 1996
paper, the article "Student health offers
rape counseling was a very serious
matter. If s nice to have rape kits handy
on campus for students so they won't
have to go elsewhere. It's good that the
health educators speak about their ser-
vices so any one who has problems will
not be ashamed to be seen. I'm sure they
are not the only person that if s happened
to. If s also nice for victims of rape to
have support of health educators and
nurses. To have a nurse and someone
else take a victim to the hospital shows
much respect and is a great idea.
Amy Taylor
How about an award instead?
To the Editor,
This letter is in response to the
article about ECU head football
coach Steve Logan. I don't think
that there are a lot of people who
would disagree with Coach Logan's
raise. After all, we all know how
well the Pirates played last season
and in the Liberty Bowl. The issue
left to debate is the amount of
money he is making. I thought that
$97,300 was a lot to begin with,
now he's making $107, 030. The
idea of a raise is nice, to show rec-
ognition for an outstanding perfor-
mance. But it's not like Logan is
strapped for cash $97, 300 is a
whole lot of money to make, espe-
cially in a small town like
Greenville. Maybe they should have
saved a little money and just given
the guy an award.
Grant Zauner
Letters to the Editor
Give teachers credit
Parking is a problem
To the Editor,
Parking is a big problem for all
students. I must agree with the article
entitled "$96 buys a Hunting Li-
cense Ms. Eaton brought out a very
important point about space. The
university keeps growing and it seems
like the studentsSc parking spaces
are the first ones to go. The parking
lot by Allied Health has already been
cut due to the new staff parking lot
that is being implemented. With such
inadequate space one would think
that the price would be reduced.
Afterall what is the increase of the 26
extra dollars going for anyway? Some-
thing seriously needs to be done about
this problem. Parking and Traffic ser-
vices needs to step back and assess
the situation and come up with a so-
lution that will benefit the students
as well as themselves.
Hope Pfeil
To the Editor,
I am writing in response to the
recent article, "Coach's Raise Final-
ized" in the April 2nd issue.
In some ways I support the idea
of giving the coach a raise for an ex-
cellent job he has done in training
the team for their accomplishments
they have made this year. Winning
the Liberty Bowl and maintaining a
9-3 record took hard work for the
coach as well as the team. I applaud
their effort. A job well done Pirates!
But now let's face the facts of
this issue. A lot of money and atten-
tion is already focused toward the
athletic department in the first place.
I agree with sophomore Kristen
Cocca and junior Christie Wade.
Many people are forgetting the pri-
mary reason why we are all here, and
I believe that more emphasis should
be put on the instructors and profes-
sors. These individuals are teaching
doctors, lawyers, engineers and ev-
ery occupation and professional ca-
reer that exists. What good is a coach
going to do for a pre-med student
trying to study medicine, or an ath-
lete who cannot excel in the aca-
demic department? I think instruc-
tors and professors deserve to make
more than Coach Logan, rather than
having the coach making more than
three or four of the instructor sala-
ries combined.
Since this proposal has already
gone through, and our opinions are
just words on paper, I think the next
step would be a proposal on raising
instructor and professor salaries
without raising tuition for students!

Don't allow a disagreement to fester
this week. The longer it lasts, the
more the other person will gain the
advantage. An early eompromise is
best Major purehases require extra
attention to details, or you could
miss some vital tine print.
April 21-May 21
Now that you've cheeked out all
your options, no ahead and make a
decision. Your instincts are pretty
good. Don't try to mix business and
pleasure this week, or you'll end up
reeling shortchanged in both.
May 22-June 21
A reluctant companion threatens
to ruin a pleasant outing. Don't
force the issue. Instead, change
the subject and enjoy a lively
conversation. Concentrate on
domestic issues by starting a new
family tradition.
June 22-July 22
A simple conversation turns ugly
when egos are at stake. Steer clear
ol emotional comments to keep
things from getting out of hand.
Suggest a distraction at work to
break out of a stale routine.
July 23-August 23
An emotional commitment begins
to tlower. so nourish il with a
thoughtful, romantic gesture. Do
not mistake silence for assent at
work�you may need to work harder

I had just begun to write my re-
view of the new FOX show Kindred:
; The Embraced when 1 saw the vampire
at the window.
1 hadn't even noticed him coming
inside, but there he was and in he came.
He was a lanky fellow, clad all in black
but for a brightly-colored They Might

' rie resemblance to River Phoenix. Dark
eyes studied me underneath dark bangs
while he sat on my window sill, knees
clasped together with laced fingers the
color of bone and feet on my bed. You'd

"A little I confessed. "Mostly be-

at the edge of the bed. As he moved, his

As I sit down to write this story
I'm holding onto one of the best se-
crets I've ever been given to keep in
confidence. You see, it's 3 p.m. Tues-
day afternoon and I've spent almost
the entire day loading a band's equip-

I can't say it
Wait just a minute, by the time
anyone aside from my editor reads this
article it won't be a secret anymore.
And he detests the band playing, so
what difference does it make?
It will be Thsday morning and
everyone will still be talking about my
secret I can say it Hootie and the Blow-
fish are playing at the Attic tonight
Okay, I didn't say it I wrote it No one
told me I couldn't write it
Only a couple years ago, Hootie
played in Greenville almost every week.
One of my friends told me he used to
walk by the New Deli (now Graffiti's),
see the foursome inside and complain,
"Hootie and the Blowfish again
But as virtually everyone in the
world knows by now, they're a big-time
rock and roll band. They started off
just like anyone else, though, playing
anywhere that would have them. Then
they progressively played larger gigs,
like the N.C. State Delta Sigma Phi
Lawn Party in the fall of 1994. They
progressed to a few appearances on
The Late Show with David Letterman,
then the Ritz in Raleigh and finally
Rolling Stone covers, stadium dates
and sell-out shows everywhere.
There were four of us who showed
up at the Attic at 11 a.m. to give the
band a hand loading their gear into a
club gig for those Blowfish. None of

New serial nove
starts published
life with a bang
Mark Brett
Lifestyle Editor
Stephen King is a damned ef-
fective writer. He knows how to pull
readers into a scene like nobody's
business. Opening one of his books
guarantees that, at least once be-
fore the evening's over, you'll find
yourself with a clenched stomach,
turning pages feverishly to find out
what happens next but filled with
a cold certainty that, whatever it
is, it won't be pretty.
The problem with King is that,
while he can pull me into individual
scenes, the stuff he puts in between
the good parts generally bores me
silly. Ultimately, I find myself more
annoyed with his dysfunctional
characters than sympathetic to
their plight. By the end of a King
novel, I'm usually rooting for evil.
King works best when he's dealing
with simple people in short pieces
that don't give him time to pad the
story with angst.
Fortunately, King returns to
this ground in his latest project,
The Green Mile. A story about a
death row cell block in the 1930s,
this book is being published seri-
ally. Once a month, King will re-
lease a new chapter of this noirish
prison tale, hoping that his fans will
come back each time for their next
Personally, I'm a sucker for this
kind of thing. Stick a "to be con-
tinued" on something, and I'm
hooked. So I'll probably be slapping
down my three bucks every month
to see this story through even
though I'll end up paying a lot more
for the serialized Green Mile than
1 would if it were a traditional
Of course, I'm probably getting
a better story than I'd get in a regu-
lar novel, too. The strict page limi-
tations of the serial format is fore-
g walks
ing King to write
fast and lean. The
Green Mile is a
tight story that
thrills and sur-
prises quickly and
satisfyingly. It
ain't art (not
much of King's
work is), but it's a
rip-snorting good
time anyway.
The first
chapter, titled
"The Two Dead
Girls is a quick
evening's read, a
slim 92-page vol-
ume with large
type. In it, King
establishes the
major players of
his electric chair
melodrama and
leaves plenty of
juicy plot threads
dangling for serial
junkies like myself
to suck on until
next time.
Written with
an obvious love for old pulp maga-
zines and the work of Charles
Dickens (who was himself often
printed serially), The Green Mile is
filled with great, ominously appro-
priate names and broad characters.
It's set at Cold Mountain Peniten-
tiary, a gothically God-forsaken
prison in an unspecified region of
the American South. The "Green
Mile" of the title refers to the lime-
tiled corridor that leads to Cold
Mountain's electric chair.
Our narrator is the head guard
of E Block, where prisoners des-
tined for a visit with "Old Sparky"
are kept. King names his mouth-
piece in just one scene, and then
we're only given his first name:
Paul. I'm pretty sure there's some-
thing Biblical going on there, but
time will have to tell.
Paul's fellow E Block guards

bly wrong), skinny but solid Harry

X-Files open on video
Hala UfllllulMAII
Dale Williamson
Senior Writer
On Sept 10,1993, television received its first jolt of what was destined
to become a cultural phenomenon. On this date, The X-Files crept its way
onto Fox's Friday line-up and lifted television horrorsci-fi to a new artistic
level. r.
The X-Files not only provided feature film entertainment on a TV bud-
get, it also tapped into our nation's fears of instability. In each episode,
audiences faced such threats as government conspiracies, unexplained
paranormal activities, freaks of nature and the possibility that we are not
the only intelligent life in this universe.
What The X-Files revealed to its cult audience more than two years ago
was that the truth is out there, but that truth may be devastating to our
human perceptions of reality. Since its initial airing, The X-Files has become
a legitimate television hit It has spawned a consumer market unlike any-
thing since the revival of Star Trek.
Even though the shoWs creator, Chris Carter, is keeping a tight grip on
what X-Files merchandise is available, he has recently given Fox Video per-
mission to release episodes from the first season on video, which can be
purchased at most any store that sells video tapes. So, for those of you who

Brutus Howell and bookish Dean
Stockwell. If these characters
sound cliched, it's probably because
they are.
But characters like these are
the stock and trade of the kind of
pulpy prison yarn King is spinning
here. The terribly appropriate
names are, likewise, straight out of
Dickens. Groan if you like, but
these guys all gave me a good
laugh. Besides, I'm curious to see
if King does anything with the ste-
reotypes he's fleshed out here. As
I said, time will tell.
Time may also tell on the story.
Though compelling so far, the sheer
length of a serialized novel like this
may lead King astray. I don't think
so, though. Constant deadline pres-
sure and the need to continually
hook readers always spurred
Dickens and many of the pulp writ-
ers to keep their work fresh and

Staff Writer
Music is the only thing that
some musicians can do. That's not
quite the case here, though.
By using nearly all of the in-
come he makes working as a men-
tal health specialist in the psychiat-
ric emergency room for Oakland.
California, Ian Brennan has pro-
duced eight of his own records on
his own label. Pretty impressive,
wouldn't you say? Not only can
Brennan cure the insane, he can
entertain them as well.
The music on Cheapskate is far
from impressive but it has a mes-
sage, whether positive or not.
Brennan starts delivering that mes-
sage with a track called "Master
Plans This is a song, like every
other on the disc, that speaks of the
slums of life. Some people like to
speak of the dark side. People need
to! If we don't, how can we be so
sure that it's there?
Ian Brennan, who at the age of
5 started listening to Elvis Presley
and began playing guitar, says he
doesn't expect for his albums to
amount to much. He would like to
hit the road a few times and sell a
few more records. It's odd that some-
one with a life so complex would
have the time to release eight
records. That's a lot of music. Makes
you wonder what type of material
would be on those records. That's
right, it's sick and twisted music to
captivate your mind.

they considered to be better episodes
from the first saason, it still would have
been wiser to go ahead and release the
episodes in order. The market for these
tapes is going to mmmmmmmmm
be die-hard X-
Files fans who
will want a com-
plete collection,
so skipping epi-
sodes more than
likely will only
frustrate poten-
tial consumers.
Still, the
collection is an
excellent intro-
duction to the
show. Those who are more familiar
with recent episodes of X-Files may be
somewhat disappointed, though. The
earlier episodes of the show have a
quirkier feel to them and are a bit less
moody than latter episodes. In essence,
the show hadn't quite discovered itself
yet Duchovny plays Mulder with a bit
more sarcastic energy in these tapes
than he does now, and there are more
hints of sexual tension between Mulder
and Scully. Anyone familiar with the
show as' it is now knows that the
chances of Mulder and Scully having a
sexual affair are zilch and zero. It will
never happen.
But there is no denying the power
of the'first season of The X-Files. "Con-
duit" is particularly engaging because
it delves into Mulder's obsession with
finding his sister, who may have been
abducted by aliens when he was a child.
A scene where Scully's report to the
FBI overlaps the visual of Mulder cry-
ing in a church- as
he struggles with
his anguish is as
powerful and as
well done as any-
thing you can find
on the big screen.
1 will give a
warning to all new
viewers, though. Be
sure to fast forward
through Chris
Carter's opening
remarks on the
show and watch it after you've viewed
the episodes. As insightful and enjoy-
able as his commentary is, it should
have been placed at the end of the tape.
Carter gives too much away before the
episode runs.
As far as I'm concerned. The X-Files
is reason enough to spend a quiet
evening at home on Friday nights. It
ranks with the best shows airing now,
including ER and the underrated Ho-
micide. Hopefully, The X-Files will en-
joy a long, healthy life. And, hopefully,
Chris Carter and Fox Video will be in
spired to release more video tapes of a
show that has helped make television
wortn watching again.
On a scale of one to 10, The X-

16, which makes his believability as a
seasoned cop flush down the tubes.
Kate Vernon, whose vampire character
unfortunately dies in the series opener,
was my favorite. I kinda have hopes
she'll come back. Jeff Kober, who was
so great as the weird-looking guy on
China Beach, is here playing a weird-
looking Nosferatu clan leader. Stacy
Haiduk (from Seaquesi DSV) playing
the sexy leader of the Toreadors
"Stop there the vampire snapped,
narrowing her large, dark eyes. "You just
named two of the major problems.
Haiduk is no Toreador leader. She's
more of a whiny tart Vernon would've
made an excellent clan leader - beauti-
ful, strong and independent Killing her
character was a dreadful mistake.
"Kober, on the other hand, has the
opportunity to play a representative of
one of the more interesting vampire
clans, but he's rather wooden. A future
plotline seems to indicate an 'unrequited
love' story for the Nosferatu, which is
vomitous. Do you humans think that
all we do is sit around, listening to
Morrissey and Bauhaus, wishing we
could love a human just one more time?
"This brings me to'my final point
about the show, which you can take or
leave. A series with such a strong hor-
ror element must establish a tone, a
mood that envelopes you within the
show and refuses to release you. The X-
Files does this with film-quality effects
and lighting, as well as powerful uses
of dark and light to establish a scene.
"This is something that Kindred
is sorely lacking. This is a series about
vampires. Why does everyone seem to
walk around in brightly lit areas?
Kober's Nosferatu, if darkly shadowed
and lit could have established a won-
derful mood for both the character and
series. Proper lighting could allow for
more horrific violence; violence locked
in shadow, obscured and made more
frightening by the viewer's own mind.
Kindred The Embraced has wonder-
ful potential, most of which is being
misused. Still, it is worlds above the
normal television fodder
I nodded in agreement laying the
notepad down to stretch. When I had
opened my eyes, the vampire was gone,
leaving only the rustle of window blinds.

Hootie and the Blowfish stepped
onto the stage with two additional band
members accompanying them. They've
added both a keyboard player and an
additional percussionist since they have
reached super-rock star status.
Darius Rucker, Hootie frontman,
explained to the raging crowd that the
band has finished recording their new
album and they'd rather "play the clubs
they used to play and try out some new
material than sit around in a warehouse
and rehearse
The band mixed up their set evenly
with new songs and older ones off of
their chart-topping full-length debut
Cracked Rear View and their first EP
Kootchypop. During the band's two
hour set crowd favorites were certainly
"Drowning "Hannah Jane" and of
course "Hold my Hand
However, the most explosive song
they performed was the Doobie Broth-
ers classic "Without Love Hootie is
not known as an improvisational act
but they dispelled this belief during
"Without Love After the first verse,
the band gravitated into some verses
from Public Enemy's "Fight the Power"
then into the Third Bass cut "Cactus"
and finally a little De La Soul rounded
out the Doobie classic. They rehearsed
parts of this song during soundcheck
but certainly didn't nail it the way they
did during the show.
Currently, Hootie and Blowfish are
on their Who says we don't play clubs
anymore?" tour. They're playing a hec-
tic one week schedule of dates in Co-
lumbia, Myrtle Beach, Winston-Salem,
Greenville and Wilmington. AIL club
dates. After this short Carolina dub tout,
the guys are headed on a hugertfiuro-
pean tour.
Hootie and Blowfish have tried to
keep each of these shows as quiet as

'95 records:
Broke the ail-time ECU
freshman record for
triples in a season

For some Division I athletes, their
respective sport seems more like a job
rather than an enjoyment This is all
but true when you describe Athlete
of the Week Randy Rigsby and his love
and respect for the sport of baseball.
This sophomore first baseman
hails from nearby Goidsboro, N.C. and
could be labeled as one of the local
talents that Head Coach Gary Overton
is so prone to find while recruiting
for his program. Despite his youth,
Rigsby has made some of the biggest
contributions to his team in the two
years he has been with the Pirates,
and could be described as a leader.
"Although Randy is a very quiet
person, he is still a leader on this
team Overton said. "Randy is a
player that leads by example, he
doesn't verbalize, he just leads by ex-
Rigsby stepped in last season as
a true freshman and played 52 games
for the Bucs breaking the team record
for doubles hit by a freshman in a
single season. Rigsby added 12 sto-
len bases to his stats as well as main-
taining a spot in the top three on the
team for doubles hit in a season.
"I came into the program expect-
ing to face a lot better pitching than I
was used to in high school Rigsby
The transition from high school
ball to college, usually a tough one to
make for a Division 1 freshman, was
relatively smooth according to his
stats as well as his coaching staff.
"Randy is a very smart ballplayer
and he has a lot of tools that makes a
good baseball player Overton said.
"It didn't take Randy long to adjust
to his surroundings which is a credit
to him as a ballplayer as well as a per-
Rigsby was one of the many
youngsters that had to grow up fast
on a young ball club that had only a
handful of upperclassman.
"We had a lot of young guys last
season and I know I struggled, but
the experience helped me prepare for
this season Rigsby said.
Practice has made perfect as
Rigsby just last weekend in a victory
over George Mason going 4-6 with
three doubles to lead the Pirates to a
12-2 romp of the Pats. Rigsby's out-
standing outing in Fairfax shouldn't
go down as a rarity. Rigsby has im-
proved from last season and has be-
come a workhorse at the plate for the
"Oh I can see improvements in
my hitting this season Rigsby said.
"A lot of credit goes to my experience
last season
The smaller first baseman has not
only done it for the Bucs at the plate,
but he has been an asset on the bag
as well.
"Randy is small, but he makes it
up with his speed and agility which
makes him into a excellent defensive
first baseman Overton said.
"Well, being smaller is a disad-
vantage but I try to use above aver-
age speed to make up for it Rigsby
The use of his talents may land
Rigsby a spot in his dream to play
professional baseball.
"I guess it's every ballplayer's
dream to play in the bigs, but if that
doesn't pan out I'll fall back on my
major, computer science Rigsby said.
I got it!

SID - Alphons van Ierland. regarded as one of
the ton junior basketball prospects in his country of
the Netherlands, has signed a national letter-of-intent
with ECU, according to an announcement by Pirates'
Head Coach Joe Dooley.
Van Ierland, a 7-0, 210-pound center, is a native of
Tilberg, Netherlands. He has been a member of the
Dutch 22-and-under National Team the past two years
and is considered an excellent candidate to make the
Netherlands Olympic Team four years from now.
During the past two seasons, van Ierland has
played for a club team called "America Today" in
Hertrenbosch. Netherlands. He is currently averaging
16 points, 11 rebounds and 4.5 blocks for his team

whose season is still in progress. Van Ierland, whose
club team coach is Wierd Godee, scored 15 points per
game while pulling down nine rebounds during the 1995
season. Van Ierland is a high school student at Koning
William II College.
"We are excited about having a young center with
Alphons' potential joining our program said Dooley.
"He possesses many outstanding skills; he just needs to
get 'Americanized' toward basketball. We look forward
to having him arrive this fall
Van Ierland is the first men's signee of the spring
for ECU and the second overall. Neil Punt, a 6-9 for-
ward-center from Chaska, Minn signed with the Pirates
during the early period last fall.
The Lady Pirates have been
rolling through the competition all
season, and Tuesday afternoon was
no exception. The victim this time
was UNC-W.
The mighty purple and gold la-
dies took it to the Lady Seahawks
on a wet Tuesday afternoon in
Greenville. The teams played a
doubleheader in which the Lady Pi-
rates were victoriously big in both.
The final scores read 4-0 for game
one, and 9-1 in game two, in a Big
South conference battle.
They were keyed by some out-
standing offensive performances,
including some clutch hitting from
short stop Sharoiyn Strickland.
Rhonda Rost's two-run double to
center field in the bottom wf the
sixth inning that scored outfielders,
Amy Hooks and Tonya Oxendine,
all but clinched the victory for the
Lady Pirates in the first game. The
defense against the Lady Seahawks
was -a definite team effort all
around. Jami Bendle (12-10,5-2 Big
South) earned the victory on the
mound for the Lady Pirates as she
held UNC-W in tact with a two-hit
"These were two of the better
games we've played this year ECU
Coach Sue Manahan said.
"Sharoiyn really hit the ball well.
She had a lot of RBI's in both
games. Her hit in the second game
with the bases loaded sealed our
victory by slaughter rule. I cannot
say enough about our defense. De-
fense is always key in winning any
game you play. I am very pleased
with our overall effort
The second game provided
more outstanding play by the Lady
Pirates. They were keyed by an-
other solid batting performance
from Strickland as she batted two-
for-four with two doubles and four
RBI's. Senior Tracie Podratsky,
hurled her way to a terrific three-
hit, one run ball game as she took
the mound for game two.

"We are a tough team to play
against and a lot of the reason why

have a couple of young players who
help out tremendously and will defi-

to come to take over the leadership
duties. Joey Clark does a tremen-

There are six more games left
on the schedule for the Lady Pi-
rates. Following the final two home
games ECU will hit the road for it$
final four. Two are conference
games and the other two are nort-

first between ECU and UNC-G has
grown so tight, it is important fojr
the Lady Pirates to stay focusei

By half-time, the game was tied

ECU's attackman Ward Taylor and
midfielders John Prousult and Ben

The second half turned into a
hard hitting physical game with
JMU taking most of the heat. The
ECU defense held tight with plays
by veterans Cullum McNutly and
Greg Daisey. ECU's offense took ad-
vantage of man-up advantages and
scored three more goals. Fntering

ECU was ahead seven to six. It

Sophomore first baseman Randy Rigsby(.326) leads

Senior center fielder Jason Head is now batting .280
after last week's games. Head ranks second on the

After the conclusion of the
regular season, the Lady Pirates
will venture down to Rock Hill. SC,
for the Big South Conference Tour-
nament. The conference tourna-
ment is approaching rapidly. The
dates for this year's tournament are
April 19, 20 and 21. The tourna-
ment should be very competitive
this year with ECU and UNC-G be-
ing the early favorites. This last
week or so could set the tone for
Lady Pirates post-season.
"We cannot afford to slack of

son Podratski said. "1 agree with
Joey An that we do need to main-
tain our high level of play. We can-
not look past these remaining
games. If we do, we are asking to
get ourselves beaten by someone
else. Yes, the conference tourna-
ment only being a week and a half
away cannot help but to get you
excited, especially when you are a
senior. This is it for me and the
other seniors as well. We all want
to go all the way to the top
The Lady Pirates seem focused
and poised for a late season at the
title. They might be losing some key
seniors this year, but reports have
shown that ECU is getting a tal-
ented recruiting class that will be
arriving in the fall. The five juniors
who will become seniors next sea-
son should provide the quality lead-
ership that will help shape up next
year's teim into, hopefully, the
high-caliber team the Lady Pirates
have formed this season.
The victories over UNC-W boost
ECU'S record to 11-3 in the Big
South Conference and 30-18-1 over-
all. This 11-3 conference mark
leaves ECU in a first place tie with
arch-rival UNC-G.
Next up for the Lady Pirates
will be their final regular season
home games as they host Hampton
University in non-conference
doubleheader. Game one will
promptly begin at 3 p.m. today.
