Current calendar
to go from 141 to
150 days by '97
Amy L Royster
Assistant News Editor
ECU's academic calendar faces a
nine day increase after the UNC system's
Board of Governors endorsed a recom-
mendation that all 16 universities in the
system lengthen their academic calendar
to at least 150 days.
The recommendation made by UNC
system President C. D. Spangler was
approved by the Board of Governors last
Friday. The mandate forces universities
to add days until the fall and spring se-
mesters total 150 academic days. Univer-
sities must comply by the fall semester
1997.
According to Vice Chancellor of
Academic Affairs Dr. Richard Ringeisen.
the faculty senate which controls the
calendar will convene early in the fall
semester to discuss the most prudent way
to add the days. ECU currently operates
on a calendar of 141 days.
Before the mandate, the calendar
committee had already planned for 143
days for the 1997-1998 school year.
Ringeisen said he believes this will alle-
viate a little of the burden of adding days.
"The faculty senate forms the cal-
endar committee Ringeisen said. "There
is a student seat on the committee and
we have asked Angie Nix (SGA president)
to help us find a student for the commit-
tee
Nix said Chancellor Richard Eakin
assured her that the university would
seek broadly based input from students.
The student on the committee will be
either Nix or someone appointed by Nix.
"It is important to me that a stu-
dent who will stay on top of this get in-
volved Nix said. "1 want outof-state stu-
dents to know that we will try not to
shorten their vacations home too much
Ringeisen said in the past there have
been some problems getting a student
to attend committee meetings, but given
the task at hand, he feels there will be
no problem obtaining student input
University of North Carolina Asso-
ciation of Student Governments
(UNCASG) President John Dervin said
that since 1989. members of the legisla-
ture have looked at lengthening the aca-
demic calendar. Dervin said that this put
pressure on Spangler to recommend the
increase.
"My concern is that the recommen-
dation is being done over the summer
when students can not get involved
Dervin said. "It is going to have a huge
affect on the schools. Where you are prob-
ably going to lose is vacation days. I am
concerned that this is happening very
quickly
Ringeisen said that until the faculty
senate's calendar committee meets there
is no set plan of action.
"We have no predetermined way to
add the days Ringeisen said. "There is
little room to sneculate as to where the
days will come from because there are
only a few options
Ringeisen said although there has
been no formal discussion concerning the
mandate yet, he and Eakin have dis-
cussed potential concerns such as the
cost of a longer academic year. Ringeisen
said students on campus for nine more
days will need longer meal plans and
extended use of the residence halls.
" Most of us think there will be added
cost at lengthening the school year
Ringeisen said. "We will have to meet
the cost and figure out how to do that"

in jeopardy
Audit finds

The transit system at ECU has
been under investigation following
reports of abuses in management,
which reached the university audi-
tor in February.
University Attorney Ben Irons
said that after receiving news of the
alleged abuses, the university au-
ditor. Brenda R. Mills, investigated.
'The auditor) makes sure that
our financial transactions are
handled appropriately Irons said.
But in monitoring those activities.
it's often necessary to monitor
work-related activities, which relate
to those financial activities
SGA President Angie Nix said
the auditor's findings of the tran-
sit system were finalized at the end
of June.
However, these findings were
not presented in last Thursday's
Board of Trustees meeting.
Jordan Whichard, a member
of the Board of Trustees, said the
Board did not receive a full report
on the transit issue.
As a result of recent develop-
ments, the university plans to take
the management of the transit sys-
tem out of the hands of the students
and place a full-time staff member
in charge of the transit system.
According to Dr. Al Matthews,
vice chancellor for student life, the
transit system began their search for
a full time staff member to oversee
operations before the investigation
began.
The misuse of university re-
sources and student fees has been
reported to the State Bureau of In-
vestigation.
"Anytime that state funds are
misused, it has to be reported
Irons said.
So far, the SBI has not gotten
involved, and the investigation and
any disciplinary actions resulting
from it have remained within the
university.
"Restitution is being required.
That matter has been handled in ac-
cordance with the student disciplin-
ary process Irons said.
Irons confirmed that two of the
students who held management po-
sitions last year have siqpe gradu-
ated. The interim student manager
now holding the transit manage-
ment position will manage the sys-
tem until a staff member is ap-
pointed in the fall.

During Freshman Orientation,
the investigation of local nightclubs,
which were believed to be targeting
orientation students, resulted in sev-
eral citations.
According to Blair Carr, the
Greenville Police Department's po-
lice attorney, after the GPD received
criminal intelligence that some
downtown nightclubs were pin-
pointing freshman orientation stu-
dents as potential patrons, an un-
dercover operation was planned for
Sunday evening June 23.
"The clubs were either advertis-
ing or making it be known by word-
of-mouth that underage students
could enter clubs and be served
Carr said.
Carr declined to say where the
criminal intelligence originated from
or who, if anyone, tipped off the po-
lice.
During the undercover opera-
tion, two anonymous underage
people purchased alcohol from the
Elbo Room located on Cotanche
Street. Carr said that after they pur-
chased malt alcohol, they took it to
a remote corner of the Elbo Room
and discarded the beverage. An un-
dercover officer observed the sale
in order to testify to the transaction.
The owner of the Elbo Room,
Kirby Bryson, was cited with four
violations of aiding and abetting the
sale of alcohol to persons under the
age of 21 and aiding and abetting
the giving away of alcohol to per-
sons under 21. The bartenders, Ann
Bryant and Karen Combs, were also
cited for selling alcohol to a person
under the age of 21. Carr said the
bartenders were in violation of chap-
ter 18 B of the general statutes,
which prohibits the sale of alcohol
to underage people.
Bryson said he could not com-
ment on the situation at this time.
"My lawyer has advised me not
to speak about the citations right
nov Bryson said.
According to Carr there was
beer sitting on a counter which was
given to patrons without an em-
ployee checking anyone's identifica-
tion.
Carr said everyone cited was
given a court date where they will
have the chance to plead. If the
cases go to trial and the bartenders
are convicted, they could face a .
maximum jail sentence of one year �
as well as a fine.
Carr said the investigation was �
not targeted towards the Elbo Room
specifically. She also said that the
Attic and the Brig were other clubs
which were not open that night.
"There was no club targeted
Carr said. "Either other clubs did not
commit a violation that we observed!
or they were not open for business

Bertha destroys coast
Editor's Note: Next Wednesday's issue oTEC will have in-depth cover-
age of the effects of Hurricane Bertha to ECU'S campus and surrounding
areas.

Stalkers on campus do not go unpunished

University judicia

stance on violators
"Jacqueline D. Keilum
"Staff Writer
The relatively new law against
stalking was used in a case at N.C.
rrState to convict a graduate student
iwho had repeatedly harassed three
female students.
The case at N.C. State, which
ended in a misdemeanor conviction
on Friday, June 28, was one of the
few times the law has been used. ECU
does have its own resources available
to help anyone who has a problem
with a suspected stalker.
Many students go to the campus
police with reports of being stalked.
Others go straight to the dean of
student's office, which handles the ju-
dicial process on campus.
Associate Dean of Students
Karen Boyd said that ECU'S judicial
system exists to keep troublemakers
off campus, without having to resort
to outside agencies. She used a worst-
case scenario, murder, as an example.
"It would take a year for that to
go to trial. But we don't want that
person on our campus. We have the
right to not have that person on our
campus Boyd said.
The advantage of a college hav-
ing its own juuicial system is that it
allows quicker measures than those
of the outside court system in sus-
pending a person from the campus.
"The ECU judicial system ad-
dresses inappropriate student behav-
ior, and it addresses it timely Boyd
said.
However, the case at State shows
that stalkers can be tenacious. The
stalker was suspended twice and each
time he said he would stop the stalk-
ing. When he continued the illegal
behavior, he was expelled. Even after
the expulsion, he harassed the three
students.
Boyd said that stalking can
oftentimes be hard to prove. There has

eluded damages of $40 million in
Onslow County.
But the storm's destruction may
be most painful for the state's farm-
ers, where estimated losses from 10
southeastern counties total $154.7
million, state officials said.
Bertha's rainfall contributed to
the rupture of a hog waste lagoon in
Craven County between New Bern
and Vanceboro. Officials said 1.8 mil-
lion gallons of waste flowed toward
the Neuse River from Cecil Rhodes'
hog farm late Friday or early Satur-
day.
Tommy McLamb, a federal agri-
cultural specialist, said there was a 25
percent to 85 percent loss on tobacco
and 30 percent to 90 percent loss for
corn among the affected counties.
"Brunswick and Onslow counties
are the two worst counties McLamb
said. "Craven and Lenoir counties
were also hard hit"
Bertha caused at least $4 million
damage in South Carolina as it
brushed past the state, insurance in-
dustry officials said. There were no
damage estimates from the other
states in Bertha's path, from Virginia
to New Jersey, but damage was mini-
mal compared to North Carolina.
Hunt on Monday declared a state
of disaster in 15 counties - Beaufort,
Brunswick, Carteret, Craven, Duplin,
Hyde, Jones, Lenoir, Martin, New
Hanover, Onslow, Pamlico, Pender,
Pitt and Washington - as a first step
in the process of getting federal aid
to repair damage.
At North Topsail Beach, Onslow
County Sheriff Ed Brown said loot-
ers have tried to come to the island
by boat and state patrols are trying
to prevent anyone from coming ashore
by water. The National Guard sent 60
military police officers to help protect
property after a re-
quest by the town
administrator.
Property own-
ers and long-term
renters were ex-
pected to be al-
lowed to return to
their homes in
North Topsail
Beach beginning
today. A ban on pri-
vate vehicles in the
town's north sec-
tion meant that
property owners
would have to take buses.
Meanwhile, an unidentified man
died Saturday morning at a home just
off the island because the power went
out to his lung machine, Brown said,
raising Bertha's death toll in North
Carolina to two and 10 deaths over-
all.
Hunt promised to rally state de-
partments - Transportation, National
Guard and Corrections - to provide
equipment and labor the residents
said they needed for the clean-up. An
additional 300 inmates were ordered
sent Monday to the hardest hit areas.
At a meeting earlier in the day
with several mayors at the Emerald
Isle Town Hall, Hunt ordered immedi-
ate suspension of state burning rules.
Hunt also said the state coastal
management rules would be eased to
allow residents to rebuild docks and
piers ripped up
by the storm. No
fees would be
charged, he said.

harassment over a period of time be-

problem is that intent can be hard to
determine.
"It's very hard to prove what is

Carolina Power & Light Co. crews
had restored electricity by the end of
the day Monday to all but about 250
customers in Wilmington and another
350 customers scattered around New
Bern, Havelock and Jacksonville,
spokeswoman Donna Tompkins said.
At Topsail, motorcycles were de-
posited by the surge on the side of
the roadway, as were washers and dry-
ers in the garage areas of condos. One
car was carried across the road and
dumped in a ditch. The garage doors
of most houses were knocked out by
the surge.
No specific dollar amounts of
damage were available here, said
county commissioner Tony Padgett

Residents were allowed on the
beach to check their belongings late
Sunday. But they were shuttled in
school activity buses because the road
was undermined and repairs crews
needed room to work. In two places
along N.C. 1568, the storm surge
washed the roadway away from
bridges.
At Emerald Isle, town administra-
tor Pete Allen said damage was ex-
pected to be double the initial $24
million estimate. Some homes showed
obvious scars, such as missing roofs
and blown-out basement walls. But
there also was water damage inside
many houses, Allen said.
Gone for good is the $6 million a
day that businesses lost because of
evacuations, according to the North
Carolina Division of Travel and Tour-
ism in Raleigh. The losses were espe-
cially high because the storm came
during one of the busiest times of the
year at the beach.

"It's a conference, and they are
able to tell their side of the story and
have it considered Boyd said.
Boyd said that sometimes a for-
mal warning to back off was enough,
and required no extra measures. But
if an individual continues stalking and
pleads not guilty to charges brought
against him or her, they have the right
to a hearing before a student honor
board.
This board would be composed of
five to seven students. There are stu-
dents in the attorney general and pub-
lic defender positions, and witnesses
may be called. The student is given a
minimum of 72 hours to prepare, and
either the accused or the university can
ask for an extension of up to a week if
they have a valid reason.
Boyd said that often there is a
public perception that stalking is not
a serious crime. While it is true that
no one is hurt by a few phone calls, a
stalker can disrupt one's life.
"You're never alone. That's what
stalking means, Boyd said, and that
can be very significant to the victim of
a stalker.

Marks said that the changes will

leap-frogged over all the other campuses

Our View
Once again the
cost of
attending a
university in the
UNC system is
rising. This
year students
can also look
forward to
losing nine
days of
vacation.
Nine days, count them, nine days that students can
kiss good-bye are coming out of our vacation time start-
ing the fall of 1997.
There is no point in kicking and screaming because
with the Board of Governors meeting last Friday and en-
dorsing President Spangler's recommendation to lengthen
the academic calendar at all UNC system schools to 150
days, the recommendation has become a mandate.
Now, the only question is where are those nine days
going to come from? Fall break, when freshman are mak-
ing their first trips home to see mom and dad; Christmas
break, when students rest up for a new semester, or spring
break? These are all vacations that nobody wants to
shorten. Any way you look at it, this does not look good.
There will be a student seat on the faculty senate's
calendar committee which will either be held by SGA
President Angie Nix or an appointee of Nix. Let's hope
that the student who is included in the committee takes
his or her position very seriously. One student may be all
the other thousands of us have to make sure everyone
else on the faculty senate's committee hears our voices.
From a financial standpoint, there are effects from
this mandate on our wallets that should not go unmen-
tioned. There will be added costs to stretching the school
year. Students should have very real concerns about the
cost of meal plans and residence halls that will be ef-
fected by this mandate. Adding nine days to meal plans
and to time in the residence halls is bound to be a costly
issue. This could be just another factor in the ever-rising
cost of a college education.
Students deserve fair representation, especially when
we are most directly effected by adding days to the calen-
dar. If students make one phone call this year to univer-
sity officials to voice their opinions, let it be about the
calendar.
Students who would like to express concerns are en-
couraged to contact our SGA representatives at 3284726.

"You can be pro-choice or pro-life
and still be a very good Republican.
That's the bottom line
-Bob Dole, Today Show, July 1
Jennifer Hunt
Opinion Columnist
At a New York deli, in a prime
time interview and on other avenues
on the campaign trail: There's Bob
Dole, asserting that he will bring a
new moderation to the Republican
Party's stand on abortion. In recent
weeks, the candidate announced that
there will be no anti-abortion "litmus
test" for judicial nominees and prom-
ised to consider a running mate who
supports abortion rights.
In Dole's 35 years in Congress,
he voted for almost every restriction
on abortion that came before the leg
islative body, including a proposal in
the '80s to add a constitutional
amendment banning abortion. He
opposed a bill to protect clinics from
anti-abortion blockades. He said he
would have signed a bill, vetoed early
this year by President Clinton, to ban
�i late-term abortion procedure. He
cosponsored recent legislation that
would sharply reduce funding for in-
ternational family planning.
Douglas Johnson, director of fed-
eral legislation for the National Right
to Life Committee, praises Dole's con-
sistency. "His National Right to Life
Committee voting record is 94 percent
over 30 years Johnson said. "That's
a very strong record Dole now de-
clines to campaign on his record as a
hard anti-abortionist as it has irked
many right-to-life advocates.
Though Bob Dole's votes against
abortion have been consistent, he
appears uncomfortable when speak-
Dole's voting
record speaks
loudly
ing about the issue. Indeed, his most
recent campaign announcements, p"0-
fessing "a decent regard for those who
disagreed" with him, seem less a plea
for tolerance than a hope that con-
tentious debate can be avoided alto-
gether. Dole's rare statements on abor-
tion tend to leave the issue's moral
complexities unexplored. Over the
years, he seems to have followed the
abortion policy advice of late Repub-
lican Party Chair Lee Atwater: Pick a
position, any position, and stick with
it.
Dole says that he still supports
and endorses "a human life amend-
ment to the Constitution an amend-
ment that would outlaw the vast ma-
jority of abortions and could make
illegal certain methods of birth con-
trol such as the IUD and the contro-
versial "morning after" pill. Dole also
opposes using tax dollars to pay for
abortions-in other words, no Medic-
aid money and promises to end fed-
eral grants for organizations that "ad-
vocate abortion
Like George Bush before him,
Dole says he would support three ex-
ceptions to a constitutional abortion
ban- for rape, incest and to save the
life of a women in danger. This has
rattled the most dedicated anti-abor-
tion advocates, who believe that once
an exception is made for rape and in-
cest other exceptions become easier
to accept such as those for fetal de-
formity. It is worth noting that the
heat Dole is now taking for his excep-
tions is greater than the exceptions'
real-world impact Only 1 percent of
the 1.48 million abortions performed
annually are a result of rape or incest
or are necessary to save the life of a
woman, according to the Alan
Guttmacher Institute, a New York re-
search organization.
Dole's voting record speaks
loudly and it is likely that if he is
elected president in the fall he will
keep his anti-abortion stance. I be-
lieve that what a woman chooses to
do to her body is her own right and I
am firmly pro-choice. I have difficulty
siding with a candidate who is
strongly pro-life, because I feel that it
would risk the right to abortion if he
were elected. Abortion should not be
a government issue. I do not believe
an abortion should ever be used as a
form of birth control, and I realize it
is abused at times.
Ultimately, I feel that if a baby is
unwanted and a woman is not capable
of taking care of herself for nine
months while the baby is growing in-
side her or after it is born, then an
abortion, along with adoption should
be options for her.
The man stands behind the
counter, his shotgun resting on his
thigh. He smiles slightly as I walk up
with a stereo on my back and my
mother's wedding ring in my hand.
Mr. Pawn man knows why I'm there:
he's got what I need. The lights were
dimmed by Utilities, the pho lcon-
nected. Mr. Bill needs Mr. Money and
Mr. Pawn is the fat middleman push-
ing my broke boat upriver.
Most everyone 1 know has ven-
tured into a pawn shop since they've
been in college and all of them had
their justifications. Either the al-
mighty financial aid check didn't come
through or they blew their wad down-
town in some slap-happy bender. Ev-
eryone has a reason for going to a
pawn shop. Who can blame a univer-
sity student?
See, when things get jammed and
ends aren't meeting, the "instant cash
loan" is very enticing. Just putting
the words "instant" and "cash" to-
gether makes rent seem that much
more attainable. The problem is that
the relationship between bills and
money appears like such a black and
white issue. You pay, you stay, but
what did you have to do to make the
bread, huh? Therein lies the moral
and ethical fabric that binds us to
survival. It's not the price you named
for Mr. Pawn, but the price you pay at
home in the dark, looking for old
watches.

Then it's off to the pawn shop where
they always love your business.
It's a real simple operation. You
bring your stuff to them, they give you
half what it's worth and then sell it
for double or triple. Meanwhile, the

is nothing more than a watered down
shylock. a racketeer. He trades short-
term relief for all your dreams and
memories. Going into a pit like that
already means that you're in the hole:
why keep on digging? Do your soul a
favor and ban pawn shops. It's a capi-
talist business based on the poor's in-
ability to shake a debt Fact is, bills
are like skin, they're not going any-
where struggle harder.
I've pretty much pawned off the
first 22 years of my life to take care of
petty things. To me, the man is like a
crack dealer, always making it so easy
to want what you think you need to
get. Maybe if 1 had just been a little
smarter up until now I would have seen
my other options. The alternative is
called being frugal. Most every stu-
dent can apply and get financial aid.
Be wise with that cash. Pinch every-
where you can so you don't have to go
to the Man for a hand. The whole prob-
lem with being a capitalist nation is
that most of us are giving up the capi-
tal. The pawn-man just likes to watch
us sell it all away. His wallet just keeps
getting fatter and we keep getting
screwed harder. So next time you think
about hocking your dead grandfather's
purple heart realize that street price
never outreaches sentimental value.

To the Editor:
On May 11,1996. a fire killed five
innocent students at the Phi Gamma
Delta fraternity house at UNC-Chapel
Hill. This tragic accident could have
been prevented. Most fraternity and
sorority houses are old houses and
do not have current safety devices (i.e.
sprinklers). On some college cam-
puses, namely East Carolina Univer-
sity and UNC-Chapel Hill, the Creek
houses are not on university property
and will not receive assistance for
sprinklers from the Board of Gover-
nors.
The young men and women in
these organizations have realized the
importance of safety in our chapter
houses. To protect our members, we
wish to install sprinkler systems
throughout our houses. As much as
we would like to do this, and soon
will be forced to do this, our chapters
cannot afford to undertake this
project.
Senator Beverly Purdue has in-
troduced a special provision to the
North Carolina Senate budget that
would establish a one million dollar
revolving loan account for fraternities
and sororities to install sprinkler sys-
tems in their houses. This would be a
ten-year loan, not a donation or grant.
These sprinkler systems can save lives.
If the Phi Gamma Delta house had
sprinklers, the five children of this
state that were killed would have most
probably lived.
Fraternities and sororities raise
billions of dollars and volunteer mil-
lions of hours every year for innumer-
able charities across the nation and
the state of North Carolina. These
organizations make a difference and
are worthy of the support of our citi-
zens and state legislators.
The time for sprinklers is now,
the way is Senator Purdue's provision.
1 desperately urge the N.C. General
Assembly to support this worthy
cause.

that's not true, at least not here.
Life, it seems, would be unbear-

if you're a student at ECU. For those

of money to spend on entertainment,
sometimes seeing a film at Hendrix
can be a nice treat (And it's always
nice to know that you're getting your

about choosing the movies? And just
who are "they anyway?
Films are "chosen" by the Stu-

ordinary students, either through
personal input or by attendance, are
responsible for the films that will
eventually make their way to

of the most popular. So now you

The specters of dead Sea
Monkeys haunted my childhood.
My friends and I tried to
grow the things again and again,
only to meet with failure each
time. We'd order the Sea Mon-
key Kit through the ads in our
comic books and follow the in-
structions with scientific preci-
sion. But every new packet of
powdered Sea Monkey eggs we
bought remained inert in the
bottom of our aquariums.
And that's too bad, because
the little buggers looked so cute
in the ads. There was Dad with
his briefcase and pipe, Mom in
her apron, little Billy with his
catcher's mitt, and sister Sue,
complete with freckles and pig-
tails. They were all pink and
mostly naked, a wholesome nud-
ist nuclear family in miniature.
You could almost imagine them
living next door, if it weren't for
the fins and tiny webbed hands.
Plus, the ads told us, you
could make them do tricks. In
their confining aquarium prison,
the Sea Monkeys would turn
loops, swim in circles, and per-
form amazing feats of underwa-
ter acrobatics, all at your com-

and little Billy cower in abject

Blackfoot steps
on the Attic
Pat Reid
Staff Writer
Have you ever had a night when everything went wrong, but you stil!
managed to hit your groove? That was Blackfoot Sunday night at the Attic.
Technical glitches, personal errors and a less than stellar crowd allowed the
band to show their true colors as they still managed to turn out an excellent
show.
The night opened with the Corey Stevens Band. Now I am by no means a
huge fan of the blues, but this trio got on stage and played the best live blues
I've ever heard. After a couple of rousing instrumentals and straight-forward
blues songs, I was loving every minute.
But around 9 p.m. the blues train left the station to make room for
Blackfoot and after about half an hour, the lights went down and the sounds
of a train pulling out of station shook the Attic.
Remembering last year's show I -as expecting a surge of people and a
pretty rough crowd, so I was very surprised to look around and see the Attic
nowhere near its capacity.

R.L Burnside
A Ass Pocket of
Whiskey
Jay Myers
Assistant Lifestyle Editor
R.L. Burnside is a veteran blues
artist fr"n the hill country of north-
ern Mississippi. So what's he doing
on the Matador label, a record com-
pany known mostly for their punk and
indie bands? And why is the album
sporting a cover by Derek Hess, an
artist whose most significant claim to
fame is creating unique poster art for
bands such as The Jesus Lizard and
Boss Hog?
The reason behind this seemingly
opposed pairing is Jon Spencer, the
leader of The Jon Spencer Blues Ex-
plosion and erstwhile member of Boss
Hog (with his wife Cristina Martinez).
On The Blues Explosion's last tour,
Spencer decided to take along one of
his favorite, yet underrated, perform-
ers as an opening act
That person was R.L. Burnside
and over the months that they toured
together a friendship developed, much
like the Rolling Stones (whom Spen-
cer much admires) and their relation-
ship with Muddy Waters.
Spencer and Burnside respected
each other enough that they decided
to record an album together, and the
result is the blazing .4 Ass Pocket of
Whiskey.
Spencer and Burnside work ex-
ceptionally well together, especially
considering the fact that their musi-
cal styles at first seem so different.
Spencer evolved out of the DC and
New York punk scenes and first came
to prominence with the irreverent
outfit. Pussy Galore.
It is only relatively recently that
Spencer has taken up a keen interest
in the blues and combined its ele-
ments into hisimusic. Even now, most
of The Blues Explosion's and Boss
Hog's sound is derived from punk in-
fluences rather than the blues.
Buwiside, on the other hand,
works frim a traditional style of blues
found almost exclusively in the hills
of northern Mississippi. Definitely dif-
ferent from the sound found in the
Mississippi Delta, Burnside's blues
were passed down to him from the
'50s blues legend Fred McDowell.
Although his normal raw,
stripped-down, churning sound has
been augmented and punched up by
The Blues Explosion on Ass Pocket,
Burnside is definitely still in charge
of the music. Except for a few inci-
dental noises, like making a cawing
sound of a crow and asking for "40
nickeis for a bag of potato chips
Spencer himself keeps his mouth shut
and lets Burnside take full control of
his band.

editor Steven Rosenblum effectively

script into a coherent, well-paced de-
tective piece that only periodically
slows down.
Z w i c k
mainly slips
when he at-
tempts to hu-
manize the char-
acter of Walden.
While making
Captain Walden
a human being
as well as a sol-
dier is impor-
tant, Zwiek's de-
cision to do so
by splicing in
clips of Meg
Ryan with her
daughter proves
to be more ama-
teurish than impressive. Zwick should
have left the humanizing of Walden's
character to Meg Ryan, who turns in
a lasting performance despite limited
screen time.
As Walden, Ryan has the difficult
task of portraying several characters,
depending on who's telling the story.
When one soldier narrates how
Walden was a leader with steel guts,
Ryan sheds her cute persona and de-
livers a warrior who has been trained
to fight. When another soldier tells
an alternate version, Ryan transforms
Walden into a scared child who is not
ready for the realities of war. Break-
ing her stereotype of the typical, femi-
nine love interest Ryan professionally
conveys the extremities of Captain
Walden without resorting to over-the-
top antics.
. The fact that Ryan stands out in

have easily been played by a white
lead. Washington, staying true to his
talents, turns in a commanding per-
formance that may earn him yet an-
other Oscar nomination.
Summer cinema is not about
Oscar-worthy films, which is probably
why Courage L 'nder Fire ranks as this
summer's most mature major release.
The summer of '96 has given us sev-
eral good films, but nothing really
groundbreaking. While Courage Un-
der Fire is not groundbreaking, it is
still solid entertainment, and one of
the few thought-provoking movies out
among the summer blockbusters.
So if you're too grown up for
Arnold, give Denzel a try.
On a scale of one to ten, Cour-
age Under Fire rates an eight.

"I guess this is what the hurri-
cane left behind Ricky Medlocke
(guitaristsinger for Blackfoot) re-
marked before the second song But
in true rock legend style he shrugged
and played on - often by himself. It
seems there was a little problem with
the lead guitarist's equipment and he
spent most of the first few songs be-
hind the amps trying to remedy the
situation.
"I don't care Medlocke re-
marked, much to the pleasure of the
crowd. "We'll stay and play all night
until the thing works And with that
they played on through songs such
as "Road Fever" and "Wishing Well
Soon "the thing" was fixed, and
before the guitarist could take a
breath of relief, he was in the spot-
light The rest of the band took a rest
as Blackfoot's guitarist often months
did an amazing Eddie-Van-Halenesque
solo. Keeping his guitar strap over one
shoulder like a carry-on bag, he played
over-handed, under-handed, and one-
handed until the crowd roared with
approval.
After about an hour, Medlocke
brought out a beautiful double-neck
Gibson guitar and ripped through
"Soldier Blue" and "Left Turn On A
Red Light" Then, after Medlocke did
a slide guitar solo, he announced that
they were going to do a song his
granddad, Shorty Medlocke, used to
play. For now, they would do Shorty's
version; later they would do their own.
Then the band went into a mellow-
groove version of their biggest hit,
"Train, Train
The crowd was ready for the
Blackfoot version, but it wasn't quite
time yet After a few more songs, in-
cluding "After the Reign" off their
latest CD, Medlocke started a little
guitar doodle and said to the crowd,
"I love to play this song. It goes likes
this and slid right into "Highway
Song" The crowd sang and pounded
their feet to the bass drum so hard
the floor shook. Apparently this made
Medlocke a happy man because as the
song ended he shouted, "One more
time and the band went on a ex-
tended jam session.
Then it was time. The lights went
out and a recording of Shorty playing
harmonica blared through the loud-
speakers. Just as the recording ended
the band kicked into a crunching ver-
sion of "Train, Train complete with
crowd sing-a-long and blistering guitar
leads.
Then, instead of ending the song
they went to a drum solo. A display of
raw power at its best The drummer
pounded away for a few minutes be-
fore half-dropping, half-throwing one
stick. But instead of picking up another
he picked up a beer and drank with
one hand while playing with the other.
Using the empty bottle as a drum-
stick, he grabbed another bottle with
his other hand, drank half, and poured
the rest on his kit Then with a bottle
in each hand he played on - until one
bottle broke. Undaunted, he grabbed
a drumstick and played with one stick
and one bottle.
After the solo, the band left the
stage with the audience yelling for
more. As one of the Attic staff began
playing a song over the loudspeaker, a
roadie flashed him with a light and let
him know the show wasn't quite over
yet The band happily returned for yet
another song before the Blackfoot train
loaded up and moved on to another
town.

The combination of Burnside's

rest of The Blues Explosion, who hold
down groove after groove with an in-
fectious fervor.
The songs range from Burnside
standards ("Coin' Down South" and
"Shake 'Em On Down") and tracks
that highlight his storytelling ("2
Brothers" and "Tojo Told Hitler") to
more raucous numbers where
Spencer's energetic influence is more
readily heard ("Snake Drive" and
"Have You Ever Been Lonely?").
Throughout all, Burnside holds the
listener's attention with his personal-
ity which is as brash as it is jovial.
Never one to back down from any
fight, Burnside seems bent on mak-
ing a bigger name for himself, and
with Spencer's help he could easily
take the modern indie music scene by
storm.
As R.L. says on the track "The
Criminal Inside Me "I got a ass
pocket of whiskey and a front pocket
of gin. If you don't open up this
door, I'm gonna kick the
motherfucker in
Believe him, because if Ass
Pocket is any indication of how
Burnside is going to proceed now,
then he will be blowing the doors of
opportunity wide open.

tapping into a child's darkest desires
while wrapping itself in the most
wholesome of packages. But don't
all ads work like that? Isn't the
aw
whole point of advertising to appeal
to whatever inner drives we have as
human beings, as capitalists, as
Americans, to consume? Sure, adults
are more sophisticated than kid's,
but that doesn't make us any less
susceptible to the consumption
urge.
If anything, we're more suscep-
tible. We're the ones with the
money, after all, and there's little
better incentive to buy than a pock-
etful of cash. As much as people talk
about wanting more money, we all
seem pretty hell-bent on getting rid
of the stuff. Why else would we
spend so much of it on so much
worthless crap?
Maybe it has something to do
with the money itself. Sure, it's cqoI
having a wad of bills in your wallet,
but there's apparently something
vaguely dissatisfying about slips of
paper. Dollar bills, even in the larger
increments, are rather insubstantial.
They're small, and despite the dif-
ferent guys painted on them, they
all look pretty much alike. It's hard
to get attached to something with
so little personality, so little bulk.
Oh, but the things we buy with
money, those are a different story.
We can buy a whole world of prod-
ucts, items of such wildly varying
size and appearance as houses pr
automobiles or video tapes or Sea
Monkeys. Things that are colorful,
things we can give pet names to,
things to give our lives some mean-
ing. As concepts like religion and
family begin to fracture, we need
something else to fill the void left
in our lives. And so we shop. � ,
There's something horribly sat-
isfying about buying things, some
primal urge that it massages. It gives
vent to greed, it plugs the void it
relieves boredom, and most impor-
tantly, it gives us a feeling of con-
trol. A feeling that we've got our
lives in order, that with this new
widget we've purchased, we'll be the
captains of our destinies.
It's a fleeting satisfaction,
though, perhaps because we know
it's false. The doodads we buy sel-
dom work out as well as we envi-
sion when we're standing in the
store, and there's always a letdovyn.
It's called buyer's remorse, and ps
what no doubt propels us back into
the store to buy some other wonder
product with which to regain con-
trol.
It's all Sea Monkeys in the end,
really. Houses, cars, portable GD
players, hula hoops and fax ma-
chines, they're all just Sea Monkeys.
For all their bright packages and
promises of great things, they end
up lying there inert and frustrating
and leaving us to despair for our
inability to be happy.
But that's a sick way to go
about finding happiness. It's gov-
erned by the same dark urges that
made us want Sea Monkeys as kids,
and is just about as successful. Very
little fulfillment lies in becoming an
aquatic dictator.
So I guess it's divine providence
that the only person I ever knew
who managed to raise live Sea Men-
keys was my Aunt Mildred. .
But that story will have to wajt

Brave the links at
Indian Trails
Low fees ensure
college students
can play course
Craig Perrott
Assistant Sports Editor
This is the fifth installment in
j series of reviews of golf courses
in the Greenville Pitt County area.
; If you're looking for an afford-
able, non-difficult golf course, then
Gnifton is the place for you.
. The Indian Trails Country Club
islocated about as far away from
Greenville as you can get and still be
in Pitt County. It took me about
twenty minutes to get from there to
Mendenhall. Just take Memorial
Drive south towards Kinston, past
Ayden until you see a Chevron sta-
tion on the left hand side of the road.
I Turn left off of Memorial Drive
(wfiich has by now turned into High-
way 11) and drive a couple of miles
utftil you get to an intersection with
residences on the left and the corn
fiid from "The Field of Dreams" on
tHe right. Turn right onto Kevin
Costner drive Oust kidding, I don't
kaow what the name of the road is)
and Indian Trails is on the right.
Look for the big teepee.
If these directions are as bad as
I think they are, please remember I
was sedated, locked in the trunk of
the car and dropped off at the big
teepee. Call 1-800-830-4822 for more
details. Yes, this number is toll free
and is not the psychic friends net-
work.
Anvway, you can't beat the price
at Indian Trails. After 4 o'clock it's
$5 to walk nine and $10 to ride. You
have got to like those nine-hole rates.
As for the course itself, you get
what you pay for. The greens are like
putting in either the frozen tundra
of Siberia or in the bottom of the
Grand Canyon. The grass is twice as
tall as it's supposed to be. That's
where there is grass. The greens
should be called "beiges" for their
patches of tan dirt. Here's a tip for
you: the back nine is in a lot better
shape than the front.
The fairways are in pretty good
condition and are pretty straight on
for the most part. There are a few
standard dog legs, and some chal-
lenging par threes. There is a big
ravine lining the right side of the fair-
way on the third hole which I like to
call "the monster" because it eats up
my balls. I wish they would design a
course that caters to golfers who slice
the ball, instead of ones with all these
hook-friendly fairways.
The bunkers are sparse, and
even if you get in one (which I did.
of course), it's no problem to get out
because the lips aren't very high. In
fact. I hit out of the bunker with a
putter!
Some of the greens are located
on the crest of steep hills, so you have
to put it on the money. Water haz-
ards are not a problem though, and
there is even a creek filled with rocks
instead of water than runs through
the course. That helps finding balls
a lot easier and you can stay dry, too.
Trees are not a factor either, as
they stay out of the way of your shot
and provide some pleasant shade
along the cart path.
They don't have a short-order
grill like some other local courses,
but a pack of nabs and a fountain
Coke tasted mighty good after a
round on the links.
Rating: I had a hard time grad-
ing this one. It's great as far as
affordability and level of difficulty. In
the convenience category, it's not
great but it's not too bad. either. It
all depends on how badly you want
to play golf. I guess. The quality of
the course is not up to par. so to
speak, and neither is the food ser-
vice. They're not wood status, but
they're definitely not at the short iron
level. After much debate. I give the
Indian Trails Country Club at Grifton
a John Daly zero iron because the
quality is low to the ground but you
can make your money go a long way.

Martial arts kicks up awards
Rec Services
ECU Tae Kwon Do (TKD) has
done it again.
In the past four years. ECU's
Tae Kwon Do Club has won seven
Collegiate National titles, over 60
ETF National titles, more than 20
North Carolina state titles, (putting
five people on the N.C. State TKD
team) and roughly 50 National
Capitol Open titles. They also boast
many state, regional and national
awards including this year's ETF In-
structor of the Year award given to
Instructor Terrance Evins and also
this year's ETF National Leader-
ship award given to Instructor
Chantel Sabus.
Sara Wind brought home
ECU's first silver medal at the Jun-
ior National Tae Kwon Do tourna-
ment held in Orlando. Fla June 24-
30. In the midst of over 5.000 com-
petitors and over 20.000 spectators
in the Orange County Convention
Center. Wind weaved through the
competition in her sparring divi-
sion to lose in a close finals match
that ended in a tiebreaker decision
match by the judges.
The Junior National Tae Kwon
Do Tournament is for competitors
18 years and under and it is one of
the top tournaments held every
year. The only way to get to the
tournament is by placing in the top
three in the state in your division
and then you earn a spot to be a
part of your state team.
Wind placed first in her divi-
sion to make the N.C. TKD team. A
select few of the competitors from
the tournament are asked to come
train with the Olympic Tae Kae Do
team, who will compete at the year
2000 Olympic Games in Sidney,
Australia.
Wind, along with another ECU
Tae Kwon Do member, Tabitha
Clark (1994 ETF National Cham-
pion), will both be participating in
the exchange student program at
Yunsei University in Seoul, Korea.
Both will also be training in Tae
Kwon Do in the homeland of this
ancient 2000-year-old martial art.
They hope to gain greater
knowledge and to improve their
skills so they can bring ECU Tae
Kwon Do and ECU rec services
more regional, state and national
titles.
Under the guidance and expe-
rience of Master Byung S. Lee. Sa
Bum Nim Terrance Evins (ECU's
head instructor) and Sa Mae
Chantel Sabus (senior instructor),
the club hopes to continue its
growth.

Pendergrass, president of Tae
Shudo, attended Rickson Gracie
Jiu-Jitsu seminar in Charlotte June
22-23. The purpose of attending
this seminar was to relate the
knowledge and skills of Brazilian
Jiu-Jitsu that he would acquire back
to Tae Shudo Club.
As a second-degree brown belt,
Thomas was delighted to see such
in-depth analysis of ground fighting.
All traditional styles of the martial
arts address the four ranges of com-
bat: kicking, punching, trapping and
grappling. How well each style ad-
dresses each range of combat is left
to be argued.
Since Tae Shudo itself is a pre-
dominantly striking art, Thomas
thought that it would only be ben-
eficial to attend to see the world-
renowned grappling style of Gracie
Jui-Jitsu. During the seminar, Gracie
taught defensive and offensive tech-
niques, which addressed stand up,
mount, guard, and cross mount po-
sitions. Techniques that were em-
phasized at the seminar included
arm locks, chocks (with or without
collar) and ankle locks.
The Tae Shudo Club is cur-
rently meeting at 11 a.m. to 12 p.m.
Monday through Thursday. The club
is looking forward to having a good
year and will continue to train hard.
For more information call rec-
reational services at 328-6317 or call
752-3900 and ask for Guy or Rob.
Irvin eludes jail time
(AP) - Michael Irvin was sen-
tenced Tuesday to four years probation
and fined $10,000 after the Dallas
Cowboys receiver pleaded no contest
to a second-degree felony cocaine pos-
session charge.
State District Judge Manny
Alvarez accepted the terms of a plea
bargain worked out Monday. The pro-
bation is considered deferred adjudi-
cation, meaning the charge will be
erased from his record if Irvin stays .
out of trouble for four years.
Alvarez warned Irvin that any vio-
lation of his probation could trigger a
sentence.
"Then the full range of punish-
ment is available to me the judge said.
The judge also ordered Irvin to
perform 800 hours of community ser-
vice.
The judge said the first one-third
of Irvin's community service would be
work such picking up roadside trash
or helping at an AIDS resource center.
Alvarez warned Irvin that should
he violate the probation, he could be
sentenced to up to 20 years in prison.
"I want you to know and under-
stand that four years of deferred adju-
dication is not a cakewalk the judge
said.
Irvin appeared subdued at the
hearing. His wife, Sandi, and two young
daughters were with him in court for

U
the first time during the trial.
. Alvarez ordered Irvin to submit to
a drug evaluation within 45 days and
to undergo court-approved psychologi-
cal counseling.
Although Irvin is likely to be pun-
ished by the NFL, he's free to be in
Austin for the opening of Cowboys
training camp today.
The NFL has been saying for
months that it wouldn't rule on Irvin's
eligibility until the trial concluded. On
Monday, NFL spokesman Greg Aiello
said Irvin's status "will be reviewed
under the terms of our substance
abuse policy
Although it's possible Irvin's
record could be cleansed of the charge,
the NFL could decide that evidence
and testimony from the trial is prob-
able cause for a suspension. He could
be kept off the field without pay from
for four games to an entire season. He
makes $102,647 per game.
"Michael is glad to get this behind
him and get back on with his life de-
fense attorney Don Godwin said Mon-
day. "He intends to get down to Austin
to be part of the training camp and to
help the Dallas Cowboys
Lead prosecutor Mike Gillett said
attorneys had been discussing a pos-
sible plea "from indictment to today
"I think the important thing is it's
been disposed of in what 1 see as a
positive manner for our office and for
Mr. Irvin he said.
While the timing of the decision
keeps Irvin's football career on track,
it also came amid testimony from top-
less dancer Rachelle Smith, the
prosecution's star witness.
"Let's make sure, ladies and
gentlemen, that everyone understands
that Michael Irvin's plea of no contest
was not as a result of the testimony of
Rachelle Smith defense attorney
Royce West said, adding that attorneys
were prepared to cross-examine Smith
Monday.
The deal was sealed, West said,
because prosecutors withdrew their
demand that Irvin plead guilty and
agree to five years' probation. "A plea
of guilty may very well have (had) a
significant impact on his ability to con-
tinue to play ball West said.
On Friday, Smith testified outside
the jury's presence that Irvin claimed
ownership of the drugs hours after a
March 4 bust at an Irving motel net-
ted 10.3 grams of cocaine, more than
an ounce of marijuana and drug para-
phernalia.
She also said Irvin had threatened
her on several occasions but the dis-
trict attorney's office is not consider-
ing filing witness-tampering charges.
"It's a dead issue Gillett said.
Smith is the girlfriend of Johnnie
Hernandez, the ex-Dallas police officer
accused of hiring a hitman to have Irvin
killed, reportedly in retaliation for his
threats against Smith.
Also indicted after the motel raid
were topless dancers Angela Beck and
Jasmine Nabwangu, who were in the
motel suite with Irvin. Alfredo Roberts,
a former teammate of Irvin's, was
present that night but not indicted.
Beck and Nabwangu still face
charges.
