GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) -
County leaders passed an anti-gay
measure identical to one that
prompted officials to reroute the
Olympic torch around a Georgia
county.
After Cobb County in Geor-

1993, the Atlanta Committee for
the Olympic Games rerouted the
Olympic torch to avoid the county.
Bill Marks, a spokesman
for the Atlanta Committee, said it
was too early to speculate on
whether the torch would be re-
routed around Greenville.

Two escort service proprietors
who were convicted last month of
prostitution conspiracy, following a
seven month investigation and a three
day trial, plan to appeal their convic-
tions.
The jury deliberated for seven
hours on May 23, 1996 before Dia-
mond Escorts owners, Heather Moore,
23, and Jackie Ray Graves, 28, were
found guilty. Moore was found guilty
of prostitution conspiracy and assig-
nation and Graves was convicted of
one count of aiding and abetting pros-
titution and two counts of prostitu-
tion conspiracy.
Moore received 36 months of pro-
bation and a $5,000 fine. Graves re-
ceived a 45-day active sentence, a 45-
day suspended sentence, 136 months
probation and a $20,000 fine. Lt John
Teel of the Greenville Police Depart-
ment said that Moore did not receive
an active sentence because she had
no prior record.
Moore said that she was planning
to appeal the case and that Diamond
Escorts would remain open during the
appeals process.
"We're planning to sell the busi-
ness later Moore said.
Moore's lawyer Jeff Foster con-
firmed that they are in the process of
appealing the case. According to Fos-
ter, there was evidence kept out of the
case that should have been presented.
Foster said it was premature to give
any specifics because he had not thor-
oughly reviewed the

lief that the fine

Last month. The East Carolin-

being conducted on the possibility of
a parking deck.
While the idea is being considered,
no definite decisions have been made
Student Government Association
(SGA) President Angie Nix says what
has been discussed is only theoretical
planning at this point
"At the July SGAJ meeting there
will be more of a formal report" Nix
said.
Appalachian State University con-
ducted a survey on their campus this
April to test interest in a parking deck.
Of those who returned the surveys, the
majority voted to support the parking
deck, with the faculty returning a larger
number of surveys than the students.
After the initial survey,
Appalachain's SGA conducted another
referendum which involved only the
students. Again, the students did not
respond in large numbers, but those
who did respond voted against the
parking deck.
None of the Appalachian SGA
members could be reached for com-
ment but Mr. Dino Divernardi, faculty
advisor to the SGA. said they were dis-
appointed by the lack of response.
"They did a referendum about the
end of April, and only about 600 stu-
dents participated Divernardi said.
So far, any studies conducted here

For a number of months, the univerity's transit system has been
under investigation by ECU's auditor.
Several allegations, including misuse of campus shuttle buses, fail-
ure to work reported hours and sexual harassment are being examined.
According to ECU's attorney, Ben Irons, the allegations concerning the
transit system were brought forth during the spring semester.
"The complaints involve misconduct which allegedly occurred dur-
ing the last two years Irons said. "Most of the misconduct allegedly
occurred during the current 95-96 academic year
According to Irons there have been no agencies outside of the ECU
system dealing with the case. Irons was unable to comment on many of
the specifics of the case and did not mention who was involved, how
many allegations had been reported or how many individuals were in-
volved.
Irons said he was not at liberty to confirm or deny any wrongdoing
on their part.
"The manager and assistant manager resigned their positions ef-
fective at the end of the spring semester Irons said.
Irons mentioned that the audit was focusing on allegations con-
cerning misuse of shuttle buses and misrepresentation of hours worked.
As to the allegations of sexual harassment, he said that there had been
a series of allegations concerning verbalized sexual harassment.
No one in the auditor's office was willing to comment on the case.
"The people involved are no longer working with us a clerk in
the ECU transit system said.
The clerk was unable to say whether or not the people involved
had decided to leave on their own or if they had been asked to resign.
The clerk did say that their leaving was directly related to the allega-
tions which had been recently been brought forth and that are cur-
rently under investigation.

Appalachian State University sophomore Bonnie Alice House, of
Burlington, committed suicide by strangulation last month in the Broyhill
Music building, according to university police.
House, 19, hanged herself in a practice room, and was found by stu-
dents who attempted to revive her through CPR until paramedics arrived.
House was pronounced dead on the scene.
Police said that a suicide note was left in House's bookbag.
NC State student groups upset with treasurer
At the end of NC State's spring semester, there were complaints that
groups were receiving funds months after their requests were approved by
the Senate.
Senator Jim Reinke said groups did not receive funds due to a break-
down in communication between student groups and Student Body Trea-
surer Carmita Davis.
In a senate meeting, Davis responded to senator's complaints by say-
ing, "1 think some of you have been very whiny tobies this year
Davis said that groups received funds late because she unknowingly
used an invalid identification number while entering requests into the
computer.
Helms canceled speaking engagement at Appalachian commencement
Senator Jesse Helms (R-NC), who was scheduled to speak at a Maty 12
commencement on the Appalachian campus, canceled in a letter to the
chancellor.
Helms' cancellation comes after The Boone Environmental Action
and Revolution group headed a protest concerning Chancellor Francis T.
Borkowski's choice of Helms for speaker.
Borkowski answered the student's concerns but refused to withdraw
his invitation to Helms.
In Helm's letter to Borkowski, he said that he was aware of such
protests and did not want the occasion to be "marred by deliberate un-
pleasantness
Grill changes menu to avoid charges of discrimination
At Middle Tennessee University, grill officials announced that effec-
tive the first of April, the "Raider Burger" will be changed on the menu to
the "Old Blue Burger
The name "Raider Burger" raised complaints from several students.
The Pirate Action Committee said that ground beef would never have
lasted on long sea journeys and therefore it was historically inaccurate to
assume that pirates or raiders would have enjoyed a burger.
After student polling, the famous grilled burgers are named after the
university's mascot Old Blue.

The business services unit of the
univerity's Office of Business Affairs
recently presented an outstanding
Mail Services employee with the Quest
for Excellence award on Monday.
Award recipient, Thomas Hardy,
a courier for Mail Services, is respon-
sible for transporting important docu-
ments to their destinations between
regular mail runs. The award recog-
nized Hardy for his outstanding ser-
vices and exemplary attitude.
"I would just like to thank every-
one that voted for me Hardy said.
"It is easier not to vote than it is to
take the time to fill out the card and
mail it back. It really hit me blindsided;
I was not expecting it. I never come
expecting a reward. That's just the way
my mother raised me
"Thomas Hardy's infectious smile
and outgoing, winning personality
light up the room said Layton
Getsinger, associate chancellor of busi-
ness affairs. "Hardy's performance) is
the perfect example of what we're try-
ing to achieve here at business ser-
vices
"This award recognizes that in-
dividual who best demonstrates for a
90-day period the qualities that we
consider to most closely resemble the
perfect customer servant Getsinger
said.
The business services unit is com-
prised of 21 departments, including
Parking and Traffic Services, ECU
Student Stores, ECU Police Depart-
ment and Mail Services.

Holt said. "We needed someone in the
position with strong personal skills.
We needed someone who would be
friendly and punctual
"From the start at the interview,
things just seemed to work out
Hardy said. "I knew this would be a
great thing for me
Hardy received 12 nominations
for the award before he switched to a
full-time permanent employee and
became eligible. He received two more
nominations this quarter.
"Now that he is a full-time, per
manent employee, we are pleased to
present him with this much deserved
award Director of Marketing for
Business Services Leslie Craigle said.
"This job was- really kind of a
blessing Hardy said. "It's given me
lots of discipline and patience with the
public. A lot of people see me in one
day, and if I let things bother me and
let people see me in that position, it's
going to affect my work

would want to be treated if I was in
their shoes. I want them to know that
it (my attitude) is not a business pro-
motion, it's really me, Thomas Hardy
"Hardy probably has every posi-
tive personal trait one would find in
a human beingit is just a matter of
time before he is promoted to another
position Getsinger said.
Nominations for the award come
from students, faculty, staff and visi-
tors across campus. Every person who
interacts with business services re-
ceives a comment caid that allows the
department to identify service trends
within the department. A panel of rep-
resentatives from each department
reviews the nominations quarterly and
selects the award recipient
Hardy is the fourth recipient of
the award since its establishment last
July. Along with an engraved plaque
for his personal use, Ms name will be
added to the running list of award
recipients on a plaque that hangs in
the winning department. He also re-
ceived a $25 gift certificate to the stu-
dent stores as well as two additional
vacation days.
investigation
reveals over-use of
local anesthetic
CPS - A University of Rochester
sophomore died of cardiac arrest af-
ter participating in a federally spon-
sored research study for which she
was paid $150.
Hoiyan Wan , 19, volunteered to
undergo a bronchoscopy, a 45-minute
procedure in which ceil tissue is col-
lected from the lungs by way of a tube
inserted into the throat and windpipe.
The research was for a study on
how the environment may affect the
lungs.
Hospital officials said Wan, who
was conscious throughout the proce-
dure, was apparently given an over-
dose of Lidocaine, an anesthetic ap-
plied to the throat.
After a short observation period
following the procedure. Wan was re-
leased and went to a friend's house,
she suffered a heart attack that morn-
ing and died less than 48 hours later
on March 31.
"Our findingshave indicated
that she had a high level of Lidocaine
said Bob Loeb, public information
director for the University of Roches-
ter Medical Center, which conducted
its own investigation.
The Monroe County Medical
Examiner's Office scheduled the re-
lease of the official results of the au-
topsy for late April, he said.
Wan was reported to be in good
health before the study and signed a
consent form before the procedure
was done, he said.
The Medical Center performs
about 250 bronchoscopies each year,
and usually 50 are on volunteers par-
ticipating in the study, Loeb said.
The "study has been ongoing for
10 years he said. "We've had volun-
teers go through 10 procedures" with-
out subsequent health problems.
The study, done in conjunction
with the Massachusetts Institute of
Technology, is funded from a grant
from the National Institutes of Health.
Although no lawsuit against the
medical center has been filed, Wan's
family has hired a lawyer and might
consider filing, Loeb said.

UNC
CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) - Admin-
istrators at the University of North Caro-
lina at Chapel Hill are vying for grant
money they hope can help reduce alco-
hol use among students.
A fire that killed five people earlier
this month at a Chapel Hill fraternity
house has refocused the spotlight on
drinking among students. Four of the
victims were intoxicated.
"F feel like I'm beating my head
against the wall said Chancellor Michael
Hooker, who recently instituted a tougher
alcohol policy.
Hooker does not think alcohol con-
tributed to the May 12 fire deaths, but
he's concerned about a pattern of heavy
drinking on campus - a pattern that re-
flects a national problem lacking easy
solutions.
University administrators said they
are interested in a $20 million grant pro-

gram announced Monday by the Ameri-
can Medical Association in an effort to
combat binge drinking by youths.
Judith Cowan, the university's direc-
tor of Student Health Services, said she
has a proposal already written. "We
would love to have that money she said.
Cowan is planning a Center for the
Study and Promotion of Healthy Student
Behaviors, which would focus on drink-
ing and substance abuse in elementary
school high school and college. It also
would target unhealthy sexual behavior
and other issues, The News & Observer
of Raleigh reported.
In his first year, as chancellor,
Hooker criticized the party atmosphere
at UNCCH, calling it a deterrent to the
intellectual climate.
In December, he announced a policy
barring alcohol possession at all univer-
sity events and dormitory lounges and
bans kegs on state property.
So far, 100 violators have gone
through the university's four-hour man-
datory alcohol education program; an-
other 100 have been referred there after
police cited them for having open con-
tainers of alcohol.
Fraternities and sororities are not
governed by he university's policy be-
cause their houses are on private prop-
erty. But they have their own rules: only
"bring your own beer" parties and no
common containers of alcohoL
At Duke University, President Nan
Keohane also has tried to control the
situation. Only licensed bartenders can
distribute alcohol at parties and in pub-
lic spaces, and only after checking IDs
to make sure students are 21. The big-
gest change has been banning alcohol
from the all-freshman East Campus.
Duke's Greek organizations also
have a BYOB policy. And fraternity and
sorority rush, which once spanned the
entire fall semester, has been shortened
and delayed until spring.
At UNGCH, Hooker said he will
consider postponing rush, the Greeks'
recruiting period. He also will ask the
university's Interfraternity Council to
step in and help.
As at any university, Hooker said.
UNCCH students drink to relieve stress.
They al:o drink because they've estab-
lished the habit in high school and it ic-
mains a focal point of college social life.
"There's probably not a lot we can
do the chancellor said. "But I'm not
willing to leave any stone unturned.
We've got to change the culture
Still, some don't think administra-
tors are doinK enough.
"They could do something about it"
said Ken McGee of Wilmington, whose
freshman daughter, Jamie, fell to her
death from a campus building last year
after a night of drinking.
"Alcohol is the root of most of the
problems there McGee said. "It's out

at ECU about the parking deck have
not included students' opinions.
"It's not to that stage yet Nix
said.
If Appalachian gets a parking
deck, it will be funded through student
fees in the form of fines and vehicle
registration.
Nix said that she recognized the
necessity of solving the parking prob-
lem, but would prefer that the solu-
tion not involve increased student fees.
While there are no specific figures
yet known, building a parking deck will
be more expensive than building addi-
tional satellite parking lots around cam-
pus. At the May 3rd meeting of the
board of trustees, it was estimated that
a parking deck will cost approximately
$7,000 per parking space to build. The

cost of further satellite parking was es-
timated at $700 per parking space.
Divemardi aiso said that there is
a committee at Appalachian which is
looking at other aspects of transpor-
tation in addition to parking.
"There is an existing Alternative
Transportation committee, which has
been meeting all semester. They look
at the larger transportation issue
Divernardi said.
Other issues included biking and
walking routes, the free bus system and
carpooling efforts.
Some of the same measures being
taken to alleviate the parking problem
at Appalachian are being tried here at
ECU. While we already have a bus sys-
tem, Nix said there are plans to add five
new buses next year and hopefully in-
crease the usefulness of the bus routes.
Also, most students have by now
probably received the information from
the office of traffic about carpooling
next year. If students choose to utilize
this, it could cut down on the number
of commuter cars coming on campus.
Of course, parking is not much of
a problem over the summer. But once
fall starts and the parking lots fill up
past capacity, students who have com-
plaints about the parking situation are
encouraged by Nix to put their com-
plaints in writing.
"If they have problems with park-
ing, I would like them to write me. The
more I have in writing, the better it looks
to the board she said, adding that ac-
counts of verbal complaints she receives
are not as convincing.
"Most of the students don't real-
ize that we can do something Nix said,
trying to explain that the SGA can make
changes if the students make their
wishes known.
She urges students to write to the
SGA at their office on campus. The ad-

"This evidence shows the girls'
intent to have sex Teel said. "One
escort testified that working for the
agency included having sex with cli-
ents and that Heather (Moore) offered
to give them condoms. This showed
knowledge on the owners' part"
Teel said that six escorts were
arrested in connection with the inves-
tigation. Three of the escorts were
convicted of prostitution and sen-
tenced to probation. Two escorts are
awaiting trial. One ECU student was
arrested and found not guilty.
Teel said he thinks that the main
motivation for running the agency was
money. The agency charged $100 for
a half hour of time with an escort and
$150 for an hour. Escorts testified to
receiving 60 percent of the fee.
"The agency collected money in
excess of $100,000 annually TeeV
said.

Our View
Should a
parking deck
be added to
the growing
list of
unfinished
construction
projects
around
campus?
Most of the past couple semesters' headlines have re-
volved around either SGA business or parking problems.
We do have extensive coverage of the university, but these
two particular issues are of vital interest to the student
body. . .
This opinion column deals with transit and parking
problems, two areas that are of vital importance to the
student body.
In an article on the front page of this edition is a
news story explaining the status of our woes in the area
of parking. As the article explains, parking deck plans
are still only in the theory stages.
First of all, we have one of the only completely stu-
dent-run transit services in North Carolina. Appearing
caddy-corner to the parking deck story, is a story about
our transit service. They may be in trouble with the law,
but buses still make their rounds taking students back
and forth to class.
No $96 hunting, make that parking license. No mer-
cenary parking ticket cops, licking their chops waiting
for you to park in the wrong spot. All you have to do is
walk to the corner and catch the bus.
Your student fees are also paying the bill for all the
convenience that transit offers. So you might as well take
advantage of services you have already paid for.
Of course the transit system is no help for commut-
ers who either drive alone or carpool. They are still left
circling campus side streets looking for someone to pull
out
But solutions are not jumping out of a hat
It is estimated that each parking space in a deck would
cost $7,000. One needs not a degree from the math de-
partment to realize how fast the numbers add up.
There are also plenty of unfinished construction sites
around campus. Ones that should have been completed
by now, but aren't. All we need to do is jump into an-
other construction project.
Let your ideas be known because there doesn't ap-
pear to be any solutions. Everyone is scratching their
heads trying to balance solving a huge parking problem
and tremendous debt.

Don't rock the vote
Some people say that I am a wee-

cause they are different, we'll say,
from the average, everyday " 1 hate

My opinion is that I hate to write

The honest politician exists only

MTV loves to pretend like there
is a candidate that is worth advo at-
ing.
In this world, the honest politi-
cian is not written about in any pa-
pers because people simply assume
that what he or she is doing is good
for the world. They are sent little
cards by six-year-old children in towns
all over America, like Zebulon or Liz-
ard Lick. Inside these cards are
crayon-drawn pictures of the particu-
lar politician standing inside of a
circle of children like Michael Jack-
son. They are handing out puppies
and giving their time to the commu-
nity that they serve. Okay enough of
this.

I do not vote!
Please do not attempt to adjust
your set, your reading glasses or
whatever. I am afraid that all of my
friends will now disown me and my
driver's license might even be re-
voked even though I haven't had a
ticket in over three years. (I hope I
didn't jinx myself.)
Why should 1 vote? Rock the

should take three hours out of my day
to go and check a little box that says
that I am a Republican or a Demo-
crat. Those two words now mean al-
most nothing because of the particu-
lar consensus that people should vote
the issues. What does that mean?
Anyone who runs for office and
does not come to my house and tell
me why I should vote for them is not
deserving of my time. Is my message
clear yet? This does not sound like
apathy to me. Does it to you?
Thert seems to be a thought out
today that this generation is plagued
by apathy. I haven't met an apathetic
person in a very long time. There is
move passion in this generation than
there is tobacco in North Carolina.
I think that MTV has simply at-
tempted to produce this vision of an
apathetic community that needs a
place or a silly bus to drive them to
vote. I am simply offended that MTV
would send out a bur to get people to
vote, and for what?
They want us to vote for noth-
ing.
They do not care if people use
their right to vote. MTV cares about
MTV and about their image. They have
fallen too far into the politically cor-
rect toilet. They fear if they do not
maintain their image as the icon for
correctness that they will cease to
make the millions that they do when
our "apathetic" generation hops on
board their stupid bus.
MTV is here because of our lack
of apathy. MTV exists because we have
spent far to much time arguing about
politics and silly issues that will take
care of themselves.
I just needed to get those
thoughts off my chest. I feel so much
better now.

tylc
Scholar solves mystery
Angel Whttley
Staff Writer
Watch out, Sherlock Holmes fans.
There's a new kid in town who's out
to solve the mysteries.
East Carolina's Professor Nancy
Mayberry has been hot on the trail of
a misplaced author. It seems that a
play, entitled The Founder of the Hohj
Conception, handwritten in Spanish
in 1664. and bearing the name of Bias
Fernandez de Mesa had surfaced in
research by Mayberry who is a mem-
ber of the Department of Foreign
Languages and Literatures.
However. Mayberry believed that
the manuscript had been unfairly con-
tributed in the 18th century to the
author Lope de Vega, regarded by
some experts as Shakespeare's Span-
ish counterpart.
Mayberry says that her evidence
indicating de Mesa was the author was
based on the second part of the play,
which was never published. This part
mentioned the author as de Mesa, not
de Vega. Also, in the 20th Century,
de Vega's name was "listed as doubt-
ful attribution she adds.
Co Mayberry made a smart move
and enlisted the help of the Greenville
Police Department Detective Peter
Lavin, a handwriting expert compared
de Mesa's signature on the manuscript
to his signature on city documents
from his days as one of Toledo's city
officers.
And, although handwriting analy-
sis is not an exact science, it did indi-
cate that the signatures matched.
Mayberry says she feels sure that
the signature is authentic because on
her last visit to Toledo, she was shown
' another play published by de Mesa in
the 17th century. She says that by
studying "the use of verse metrics and
spellings both of the plays could be
traced to the same author, de Mesa.
Mayberry speculates that de
Vega's name was used with the as-
sumption that more plays would be
sold if they were carrying the name
of a well-known author.
The new information identifying
de Mesa as the author is useful be-
cause it shows "flourishing theatre in
Toledo, when theatre in Madrid had
mostly been studied says Mayberry.
The manuscript itself is important
because it offers some of the "first con-
temporary knowledge of the Spanish
stage Mayberry adds.
The Founder of the Holy Con-
ception was published in book form
earlier this year by Lang Publishing.
Professor Mayberry is currently
contemplating doing an article on the
iconography of a portrait in the play.
So watch out mystery fans, you never
know what she might find next

Everything old is new again.
Let's face it the closer we get to
the turn of the millennium, the more
we love the past. Maybe it's an effort
to understand where we've been be-
fore we launch into the future. Or
maybe it's an attempt to purge our
cultural poisons before the apoca-
lypse hits.
Whichever (I'm betting on the
latter), it's hard to deny that America
is puking up the past like so much
spoiled meat in the closing years of
the 20th Century. It's especially ob-
vious, as usual, in our music.
Simultaneously, movements
across the country are embracing the
sound of Roaring '20s jazz age dance
halls, martini soaked Frankie-and-
Dino '50s lounge cheese, early '60s
California surf guitar and, of course,
the ever-present dull roar of 1970s
post-hippie classic rock.
The '70s retro movement is the
most popular,
as evidenced
by bands
ranging from
Soundgarden
to Phish (and
the explosion
of unfortu-
nate fashions
raging across
the land). I
guess this
form is big-
gest because
the itiumc is
relatively easy
to play, and
because that

spoiled meat. It's

obvious, as usual,

"classic rock" sound refuses to lie
down and die like the mongrel dog
it is. Or maybe it's just the drugs.
At any rate, all these movements
have one thing in common: they cel-
ebrate the most hedonistic periods
of the century. More fun was prob-
ably had in these eras than at any
others in recent history. Of course,
they probably spawned more addic-
tions and venereal diseases, too, but
we don't really think about that. No,
we think of the personal freedom
these eras represent, the freedom to
jut revel in pleasure and to hell with
Elvis Costello and
the Attractions
All This Useless
Beauty
the world.
That may explain why a decade
like the 1980s isn't really being cel-
ebrated anywhere except VH-1. The
'80s were a period of massive greed
(another kind of hedonism, I sup-
pose), but also of social repression.
While people stockpiled money and
the trinkets it buys like Scrooge
McDuck on a big pile of uppers, the
wild energy and sexual heat that pow-
ered previous eras was kept bottled
up tight.
Such an evil, constipated decade
was sure to spawn some great angry
music, and the '80s didn't let us
down. I don't mean the sugary-happy
pop crap that MTV rammed down our
throats in its wonder years. No, I'm
talking about the underground, the
place where our current "alternative"
movement was born.
Two of the stars of that angry
young underground were undoubt-
edly Bob Mould of
Husker Du and Elvis
Costello. All of which
goes to show that ev-
erything old really is
new again, because
both of these gentle-
men are back in the
record stores with
new albums this sum-
mer. And they're just
as pissed off as ever.
Costello, back
for the second time
in as many years with
the Attractions, his
original band,
�mam a inirmriT sounds particularly
bitter on his new release, All This
Useless Beauty. And Mould is actu-
ally a step ahead of Elvis in the an-
ger department with his new self-
titled effort. No mean feat, consider-
ing Costello's old rep as the angry
young man.
Both albums, ultimately, are
about betrayal: the betrayal of love,
the betrayal of ideals, the betrayal of
innocence.
In "You Bowed Down Costello

"4 Drop in the Bucket" is
just what it claims to be: a very
tiny drop in the great scream-

opinion. Take it as you will.

Recently, I've developed a
fear of the human body and at
the same time an admiration for
the human spirit.
For some bizarre reason, I've
lately spent a great deal of my
time in the emergency room of
Pitt County Memorial Hospital.
Last summer, I broke my ankle;
a few months ago, I suffered a
fever of over 103 degrees; about
two weeks ago, my fiance nearly
collapsed from dehydration; and
just last weekend, my younger
sister dislocated her elbow from
a nasty fall.
As a result of these unwel-
come events, I've pondered how
frail the human body is. Think
about how easy it is for any one
of us to die. A deep enough hole
in the right place and it's all over.
As strong and as healthy as most
of us may feel throughout our
lives, our very existence is
trapped in a fragile shell that can
crack under the smallest pres-
sure. Believe me, it did not take
much for my ankle to snap like a
piece of uncooked spaghetti.
To make matters worse, I
also realize that doing something
as simple as eating can kill me.
Dateline recently covered a story
about the dangers of
undercooked meat Did you know
that germs affect the human body
so extensively that even if a
spatula makes contact with
undercooked meat it can be
transformed into a reeking uten-
sil of death? When I really
thought about it, I frightened
myself.
The human body is the great
equalizer. We all get sick, we all
can break our bones, and we all
will die. no matter what our class,
ethnicity or sex is. Whiie I've al-
ways realized this fact, it wasn't
until my recent visits to the lo-
cal emergency room that 1 no-
ticed how ERs. to a certain ex-
tent, are cultural common
grounds. Sure, if you have the
money you can call up your doc-
tor and sneak right into a hospi-
tal without the emergency room
wait. Still, I witnessed all walks
of life during my stay at the ER.
The people 1 waited with
were all there for the same thing:

How would you like to see a
good rock & roll show and contrib-
ute to charity, too? Well, you might
get your chance this weekend. Fri-
day and Saturday nights. Peasant's
Cafe and the Attic will play host to
ten of the hottest local and district
bands in the 1996 Home Grown Mu-
sic Festival.
Greenville's hometown artists
are the focus of this year's activities,
and from the looks of things it could
be even better than last year. Lead-
ing the card is Purple Schoolbus,
followed by bands like Ominous
Seapods, Agents of Good Roots,
Moon Boot Lover, Yep Knocked
Down Smilin' and more. Also appear-
ing is another of Greenville's favor-
ites, Keller Williams, a man who over
the past nine years has been perform-
ing with bands all over the east coast,
jamming out a style of music he calls
"Acoustic Rhythm and Groove
Of all the bands to perform at
Home Grown. Melanie Sparks seems
more fired up than anyone. After a
year with her band, Sparks has been
both on the road and in the studio.
But the band isn't her only focus. She
also has a family. Even though her
six-year-old son thinks she should be
a fire chief instead, Melanie appreci-
ates his interest in her and stays fo-
cused on long term goals. Those
goals include hitting the road to per-
haps New York in August, or as she
put.it "As soon as the CD is done
But Homegrown could not take
place if it weren't for the man who
started it all. Lee Crumpton started
piomoting music at age 16. After
working at ECU's own WZMB and
receiving a communications degree.
Crumpton set out to make it all hap-
pen. He joined the team at WSFL and
started the Sunday night alternative
program. After a lot of response and
taking over Purple Schoolbus' record
label, Crumpton formed his own busi-
ness and network, The Home Grown
Music Network.
"The bands have all taken many
different influences from all different
genres of music all over the world
Crumpton said of the groups who will
be performing.
If one thing impresses thisjman,
it is improvisation. So don't expect
to hear the Home Grown bands play
songs exactly as they are on their
records.
But Home Grown is more than
just another show. Peasant's and the
Attic also try to do their bit to help
the community. The proceeds from
this year's event will go to Tender
Evaluation Diagnosis Intervention
for BEtter Abuse Response (TEDI
BEAR). This organization has helped
and treated hundreds of abused chir-
dren from 29 counties in Eastern NC.
So come out to see the bands,
but remember that they're really per-
forming for charity. There's no rea-
son you can't have fun and do a good
deed, too.

The Postman delivers drama
Jay Myers
Assistant Lifestyle Editor
Wake up, Emerald City! There's actually a good movie
playing in town and if you don't hurry up and catch it chances
are it will disappear.
Why is it that out of the three crappy theaters we have in
town (four if you count the Park, which is actually the best
theater of them all), we can't manage to get any film that
doesn't have big explosions or cute animals or some no-talent
idiot from a TV sitcom in it?
Two easy answers. First one guy owns all of the the-
aters. Second, apparently nobody goes to see any of those few
good films that actually make it here. "If it ain't making any
money, then we ain't gonna have it here" has become the
standard policy.
Well, if you're like me, and I pray that some of you are.
you'll rush out today and see The Postman, which is playing
at the Plaza. Let's send a message to the Greenville theaters
that we want a better selection on our big screens and that
we're willing to pay for it Otherwise we're doomed to endless
amounts of Steven Seagal and Arnold or Flipper and Willy.
Nominated for five Academy Awards (including Best Pic-
ture. Best Actor, and Best Director), The Postman (or II
Postino) is an elegant story about the relationship between a
famous poet and his
mailman and is not to
be missed.
Set in 1952. it
concerns the arrival of
Pablo Neruda (played
by Philippe Noiret),
the Nobel Prize-win-
ning Chilean poet in
a small Italian island
village after being exiled by his government for his communist
politics. While there, Neruda greatly influences the life of his
postman. Mario Ruoppolo (wonderfully portrayed by Massimo
Troisi).
Since most of the village is illiterate and they have almost
no contact with the outside world, it is only Neruda whore
ceives artv mail. Mario, who is dissatisfied with being a fisher-
man like his father, takes on the job of being his postman. Over
time the two become friends, discussing poetry, politics and
relationships. Mario's worldview is greatly broadened by-this
experience and he makes an effort to become a poet as well,
mostly to win the heart of Beatrice, a local waitress (played
Maria Grazia Cucinotta).
The advertisements for the film make it seem as though
the story is about the love between Mario and Beatrice, but
actually it is about the profound effect that Neruda has on
Mario's life, and Mario's devotion to him afterwards.
With this film, director Michael Radford (best known for
directing the film version of George Orwell's 1984) has sur-
passed all of his former work. There is an austere, yet simplis-
tic, beauty to each shot Whether the frame is centered around
Mario's weathered and naive face or the craggy face of the
cliffs surrounding the island, each picture is captured and held
in such a way that they become instantly etched in the viewer's
memory-
Radford isn't afraid to hold the audience with silence ei
ther. Silence onlv works in film if it becomes as important as
the dialogue that surrounds it In The Postman, the reflective
moments shared between characters ring with as much sincer
ity (if not more) than the actual words they speak to each
other.
Massimo Troisi's understated performance as Mano be-
comes the cornerstone of the film and in order to truly grasp
the immensity of what is happening to him, the audience must

Students turn to job
hunting on the internet
(CPS) Leafing through classified
ads. Trekking across campus to the
career center to check the latest job
listings. Mailing out stacks of re
sumes.
To Sara Sutton and Rachel Bell,
it didn't make any sense that job
hunting should be such a hassle. So,
the two college students decided to
do something about it
Sutton, a junior at the Univer-
sity of California-Berkeley, and Bell,
also a junior at Hobart & William
Smith Colleges, took a year off from
school to establish JobDirect, an
Internet-based placement service that
officially launched in mid-May.
"We were talking about this
whole job process said Sutton, of
herself and Bell, a childhood friend.
"We saw the stress of the job hunt"
With JobDirect, students can fill
out an online resume form, listing
information such as their major and
activities. They also can check their
area of interest whether it's business,
law or sports. The information is
stored in a database for companies
to peruse, and can be updated by the
student at any time. Also, the site's
database sorts through job listings
and places good matches in student's
in-boxes, Sutton said.
To date, she and Bell have re-
cruited 25-50 companies - larger
ones like AT&T and Xerox, as well as
small- to medium sized businesses -
who plan to use JobDirect. Their site
joins a variety of other career place-
ment sites already on the Net
Increasingly, students are turn-
ing to the Internet for their job
search, as more and more companies
are turning into cyberspace to recruit
employees, say college placement of-
ficers.
Jeannette Fromnv.a graduate
student in computer science at the
University of Dayton, accepted a job
offer as a programmer after only a
two-month job hunt, conducted en-
tirely online.
"The previous times I had been
looking for a job, I would have to go
to the UD Placement Center dur-
ing the hours they were open, make
copies of job listings, and take them
home to work with Fromm said.
But this time, by checking web
sites created by variety of career place-
ment services, she was able to switch
on her computer and look for jobs at
any time of the day - whether it was
in the morning before classes or late
at night.
Job searching on the Internet has
been increasingly popular among stu-
dents in the past six months, accord-
ing to Sue Borgert, assistant director
of job development in the UD Career
Placement Center. "More companies
are posting job listings, more web sites
are offering job searches, and more
students are using the Net to post
their resume and iand a job she said.
Chris Wiley, who works with UD
alumni searching for career opportu-
nities, said that when job listings first
began to appear online, they were
primarily for technical positions. "Now
we're seeing more and more of any
type of position she said.
"Students increasingly are using
the Internet because job listings are
constantly updated and available 24
hours a day Borgert added.
"By using the Net, job hunters
also demonstrate that they have skills
in online research, a relatively new
talent that many companies are seek-
ing she said.
A student can check out the vari-
ety of job placement services on the
Net by clicking on.a search engine
such as Yahoo or Excite, then using a
keyword search such as "jobs" or "ca-
reers
For example, the site CareerPath
was created by six major newspapers,
including The New York Times and
The Washington Post, and features
more than 40,000 job listings.
NationJob's site features a little

"Last year I had an opportunity to live on campus and be
a winner. But instead I chose to live off campuswhat a
mistake. I got stuck with utility, phone and cable bills.
The security deposit I had to pay for the apartment really
cut me short on money. I had to eat my own cooking
and then wash all the messy dishes. I even had to clean
my own bathroomYuck! I didn't have time to meet new
friends because I had to spend so much time cleaning
my apartment�not to mention shopping for groceries. I
had an 8:00 class, and searching for a commuter parking
space was a big headache. If I had lived on campus, I
could have just walked to class. Boy, did I learn from my
mistakes. Now I'm back on campus with my friends!

its share of poignant moments, the
truly sad part is that Massimo Troisi

the miracles of the medical commu-
nity. Okay, setting a bone may not
equate with a miracle, but it still is
pretty amazing. When I found my sis-
ter lying on the floor, her arm was
useless and riddled with pain. I was
afraid to touch it, and she sure as
hell couldn't move it. The doctors and
nurses at PCMH took my sister in
and worked their magic on her. They
were all courteous, hardworking and
dedicated to their jobs. Everyone
there had a job to do, and they did it
without question or attitude.
After the diagnosis on my
sister's arm was made, the ER staff
did their best to relax her and ease
her pain before they did what I was
unable, and admittedly unqualified,
to do. With a strong tug on her arm,
the bone popped back in joint and
immediate relief crept into my sister's
body. While there was more work to
be done on her arm, the immediate
problem was gone. My sister was no
longer in pain.
I couldn't help but admire the
doctors and nurses who helped my
sister, my fiance, me, and everyone
else waiting out in the lobby. Their
job isn't glorious and it isn't without
its faults. They have to deal with the
sick, and the hurt on a daily basis,
and they don't always win the battles.
They are only humans with their own
limitations, and they make mistakes.
Still, the dedication displayed in their
work deserves some sort of praise
other than the glory of hit TV shows
like ER and Chicago Hope. I give
that praise to the staff at PCMH and
the medical community at large.
I may fear the frailties of the hu-
man body, but the human spirit
seems to be dealing with these limi-
tations quite effectively. Still, I hope
I never have to set foot in any ER
again.

Extreme: adj going well beyond

tionary
The Olympic Games will be start-
ing in Atlanta next month and will
showcase athletes from all over the
world in a variety of sports. Athletes
participate in events such as baseball,
basketball, track and field and swim-
ming.
While the games in Atlanta prom-
ise to be exciting, you will probably not
see any extreme sports listed in the
events. Extreme sports are hot and
are growing in popularity.
Extreme sports, also known as
alternative sports, include events such
as aggressive in-line skating, extreme
adventure racing, skateboarding, street
luge, skysurfing, sport climbing, snow
boarding and water sports like kite
skiing, barefoot jumping and
windsurfing.
On June 24-30, ESPN and ESPN2
will sponsor a second annual alterna-
tive sports extravaganza, the 1996
ESPN X Games. ESPN's 1995 Ex-
treme Games, as well as other extreme
sporting events being aired on MTV
and ESPN2. are credited for increas-
ing the popularity of the sports.
"MTV' is driving the market, and
when people see it on TV whether or
not you want to be

Roller blading has been listed in
the extreme sports category and is one
of the more popular skills. Aggressive
in-line skating competitions allow skat-
ers to compete over ramps, rails and
box jumps.
"On the East Coast roller blading
is still very new Blinkhorn said.
"There has been a 10 percent increase
in sales due to trick skates. More

Bodybuilding. This word au-
tomatically conjures up images
of overblown, muscle-bound ste-
roid freaks, or maybe Hans and
Franz of "Saturday Night Live"
fame, or even the king body-
builder himself: Arnold
Schwartzenegger.
There is much more to body-
building than the stereotypical
posing oil. bikini trunks and
drugs. Bodybuilding has become
a huge part of the booming fit-
ness industry and is fast becom-
ing recognized as a sport.
People across America have
picked up the dumbbells to
make themselves stronger, more
muscular and achieve overall fit-
ness. This recent surge of body-
building for fitness is greatly at-
tributed to the efforts of Arnold,
who was at one time Chairman
of the President's Council on
Fitness and is currently the Cali-
fornia state chairman, and Joe
Weider.
Any male who has tried to
gain weight by drinking protein
shakes has heard of Joe Weider.
Weider is the number one ty-
coon in bodybuilding merchan-
dise and has a countless line of
food supplements, vitamins and
protein shakes and is the pub-
lisher of several bodybuilding
magazines.
Weider's promotion for
bodybuilding contests including
the Mr. America, Mr. Universe
and Mr Olympia competitions is
legendary. Thanks to Weider,
bodybuilders can now make a liv-
ing solely on the sport; the Mr.
Olympia title has a paycheck of
SI Ki.OOO to the winner.
The part of bodybuilding
that is the traditional display of
muscle in the competition arena
has changed drastically over the
years.

The intramural sports calendar
for the first summer session got un-
derway last week with action in soft-
ball and 5-on-5 basketball.
A host of teams will brave the
heat in an attempt to conquer all
comers and capture the champion-
ship. In basketball, the returning
champions from last summer, the
team mostly intact, encountered
some problems in their first contest
as they were upset by "Yo' Guts" 55-
52.
However, they recovered in their
second game of the week to whip
"Flossin and reestablish themselves
as a contender.

is a dominant inside scorer and Brian

and Anthony "Ant" Barnett are ex-
cellent open-court scorers. Matt Crisp
returned for his 25th anniversary sea-
son of IM basketball on "Yo' Guts"
and went through a week of ups and
downs.

champions in their first game, they

Men's Purple appears to be
somewhat balanced but several teams
stepped to the top in early contests.
The "TPK's" are the early favorites
as they won their only game of the
week.
This team has a long-cultivated
chemistry and veteran leadership
supplied by Brad Thompson, Brian
Manning and Robbie Kennedy.
"Alpha Sigma Phi" was the only
other team in Purple to go through
the first week without a loss, riding

it that Donie is enrolled in summer

from ESPN was that he has been

SID-Senior second
baseman Lamont Edwards and
sophomore pitcher Patrick
Dunham were named to the
1996 All-East Region first team
by the American Baseball
Coaches Association.
Edwards, a four-year
letterman for the Pirates, led
the team in four offensive categories in "96. The Pi-
rate co-captain led the team and ranked third in the
Colonial Athletic Association with a .369 batting av-
erage. He also led the Pirates in RBIs (33), triples
(4) and stolen bases (21).
Dunham, like Edwards, also led the '96 Pirates
in several categories, the sophomore right-hander, led
the Pirate pitching staff in several categories, includ-
ing a career-high 97 strikeouts which ranked second
among CAA pitchers. He also led the team in ERA
(3.10). wins (8). complete games (8). shutouts (2) and
innings pitched (98.2).
Both players were also named to the 1996 All-
Colonial Athletic Association first team at the annual
CAA awards banquet earlier in May. With their All-
East Regional selection. Edwards and Dunham will
now appear on the 1996 All-America ballot.
SID-Sue Manahan. who has directed the ECU
softbali program the past 15 years, has resigned from
her position, effective July 1.
Manahan. who guided the Lady Pirates to a record
of 470-260-4 from 1982 through this past season, is
leaving her post to pursue her interest in interna-
tional missionary work.
"I would like to thank the East Carolina Univer-
sity administration for the support I received in my
15 years as head coach of this softbali program said
Manahan. "I feel that God is calling me to the mis-
sion field of Venezuela to work with young athletes
Manahan's ECU team finished as runners-up in
the 1996 Big South Conference Tournament. Her
teams have turned in three consecutive seasons of at
least 40 wins. In 15 years, only one Manahan-coached
team experienced a losing record (18-20 in 1989).
"We certainly want to thank Sue Manahan for all
of her service to East Carolina University and for the
job she did in directing our softbali program said
Sports Information Department
East Carolina Director of Athletics Mike Hamrick.
A 1973 graduate of Longwood College, Manahan
coached six years at Douglas Freeman High School in
Richmond, Va prior to coming to ECU. Her high school
coaching record was 69-12, including one Virginia State
Championship.
Hamrick said the search to hire a new coach would
begin immediately.

SID-The ECU men's 4x400
relay team finished its season at
the NCAA Track and Field Cham-
pionships late Thursday night,
when it failed to advance from its
qualifying heat.
The Pirates finished sixth in
thier heat with a time of 3:15.48.
That was well behind the time of first place finisher
Oklahoma (3:04.94).
the relay team was made u of sprinters Lewis Har-
ris. Brian Johnson, Dwight Henry, and Damon Davis.
All four sprinters are underclassmen, so the Pirates
should field another excellent relay team again next
season.
SID - ECU softbali player Tracie Podratsky has
been named the 1996 Sports Information Director's
Nike Scholar-Athlete Award winner in the Big South
Conference for her excellence both in the classroom
and on the softbali diamond.
The Big South Conference awarded eight student
athletes in each of its sponsored spring sports.
Podratsky. who helped guide the Lady Pirates to
a 40-21-1 season and was member of the 1996 First
Team All-Big South squad, is an elementary education
major with a cumulative 3.47 grade point average. In
addition. Podratsky led the pitching staff with a .762
winning percentage and a 16-5 record.

lifted weights and ate tremendous
amounts of food in order to develop
their bodies to the limit that a hu-
man being can develop on their own
merits.
In Arnold's day, certain steroids
were available, but only experimen-
tally. Today, steroid use is rampant,
even though there is random drug
testing in some competitions.
This has taken the sportsman-
ship out of bodybuilding. The goal
now is to see how big and massive
you can get by taking more drugs
than your competitors. In the old
days, contestants were judged on
symmetry, proportion and presenta-
tion as well as mass and definition.
Weider currently is pushing for
bodybuilding to become an Otympic
sport. If this were to come about,
everyone competing would be drug
tested. This would be a great display
of fair play and the human spirit,
which is what sports should be all
about
Everyone (well, most people)
would like to realize their physical
potential and develop their bodies
not to inhuman proportions, but to
look the best they can look with
what they naturally have. Only a
small percentage of bodybuilders in
the world are good enough to com-
pete on the stage. The average body-
building person competes only
against their self, and this is what I
think makes bodybuilding one of
mankind's greatest and most re-
spectable sports.

features three veteran units known
for their many years of participation.
Richard Ray, fresh from finish-
ing as runner-up for Softball Manager
of the Year honors in the spring, will
lead the "Gamecocks" with his strat-

The "Gamecocks" will feature
the bats of Scott Leonard and Cory

gifted genius in Bobby Williams cap-
tains "Ten Greatest Hits and he will
be ably abetted by the offensive skills
of Wes Crawford and Todd Boyd.
As always, where there's softball,
Eddie Coble and Steve Lovett can be
found. However, Mike Norwood of
the "Cavemen" has pulled out the
checkbook and signed these two free
agents for big bucks. Norwood has
also recruited hitting talent in Mark
Wortham and will once again have
Scott Freeman roaming the outfield
in one last valiant attempt to win a

In Co-Rec, John Whitehead's

game, but bring back for another
summer some of their familiar stars

Lester Zeager. Joe Angelon captains
"Paisons" and will rely on Trish

Scott Batchelor will manage the
"Purple People Eaters" which leads

Gaynor O'Donnell, Ginny Doyle, and

had been playing in Japan earlier in
the year, to add some skill to the de-

Contestants may match their
skills against others in three-point
