Parking solutions were just one
of the topics discussed at a board of
trustees meeting last week.
In the meeting, trustees heard
reports from ECU administrators about
plans to relieve parking congestion,
including the feasibility of a parking
Layton Getsinger, associate vice
chancellor for business affairs, told the
board that the construction of a park-
ing deck could cost more than $9,000
per space and could raise parking fees
by $80 a year. Students, faculty and
staff currently pay $96 per decal.
"The bottom line is that a deck
will cost $9,000 per space with an in-
crease of only 1000 spaces Getsinger
said. "It would cost us $9 million dol-
lars over a twenty year period with the
bond if we appropriate the cost over
13,000 decals every year. Each decal
would cost $175
"There is also the ongoing cost of
maintenance with a parking deck.
There's security, lighting, 24-hour
staffingGetsinger said.
"Currently enrolled students, in-
cluding freshmen, would never get to
used the completed deck he said, "but
they would have the privilege of help-
ing to finance it"
"As far as my personal interests
go, a parking deck adds some type of
beauty to a campus, but in my exami-
nation of other campuses with decks,
1 have found that it would not be the
best utilization of land on our campus
"Just because other campuses
within the UNC system have decks is
not a good reason for us to build one
Getsinger said.
"A deck is something we can al-
ways build if we have to, but I believe
that there are other solutions
"I believe that we can create 2.000
spaces over the next five years with-
out increasing the cost of decals be-
cause it will be an incremental increase

Alumna appears
as Izzyin Atlanta
Graduate works

Games mascot
Jacqueline D. Kellum
Staff Writer
Many people may be familiar
with the mascot of the Atlanta
Olympic Games, a large blue crea-
ture named Izzy. What they may
not know is that the person inside
the costume is an ECU alumna.
LaTara Bullock graduated
from ECU in 1991 with a degree
in communications. She was also
a cheerleader and a Pure Gold
dancer while at ECU. Later she was
a cheerleader for the Atlanta Fal-
All of those experiences in per-
forming proved useful when she
landed the job of portraying Izzy
during the Games. She has gradu-
ally done less and less of the per-
forming herself, and begun to
spend more time coordinating the
efforts of other people portraying
the character, which has taken up
most of her time.
She says that she is basically
in charge of everything concern-
ing Izzy. That includes scheduling
all Izzy appearances and even hav-
ing the costumes cleaned.
The costume, she told the
Pirate's Chest, is a detriment to
portraying the fun personality Izzy
is supposed to have.
"The costume is extremely hot
and it probably weighs 25 pounds,
so it can get old. The shoes are
huge. It's like wearing skis Bul-
lock said.
In spite of the obstacle pre-
sented by the heavy costume, Bul-
lock said she has to put discom-
fort or personal feelings aside when
appearing as the mascot
"You have to be constantly en-
ergetic, which is hard to do with
all that weight Izzy is a happy per-
sonality, so he has
to be bouncy and
fun. You just can't
be Izzy and be in
a bad mood. That
can be hard some-
times, but it's all
worth it she told
the Pirate's
takes her job very
seriously and says
she thinks of Izzy
as a personality in
his own right

about Izzy, I talk

tity. To me he is

� Chancellor Eakin
Nearly two weeks after Hurricane Bertha ripped
through the coast demolishing homes, crops and miles
of beaches, Greenville has almost H.
completely recovered from the
Although Greenville was not
among the several nearly devastated
cities hardest hit by the hurricane,
Bertha's strong winds and heavy
rains were enough to topple some
of the largest and longest standing
trees in Greenville.
According to the City of
Greenville's Office of Public Infor-
mation, the areas hardest hit were College View and West
Greenville. The problem in these areas were fallen trees
and limbs.
The Public Works Department was overwhelmed at
first by the work ahead of them cleaning up the streets.
"Even with extended hours and extra crews operat-
ing all the heavy equipment we have, this clean-up will
take several weeks Director of Public Works Tom
Tysinger said last week. Last Saturday was cited as the
biggest day for the clean-up effort.
By last Friday, Public Works crews had delivered
nearly 400 loads of hurricane debris to the Pitt County
landfill, using well over 3100 City employee hours and

volunteer efforts.
Still there are some stumps, limbs and branches lin-
ing area curb sides and residential lawns.
Closer to campus, the story remains the same. Sev-
eral large trees along Fifth and neighboring streets lay
toppled in the wake of the storm.
Probably the most severe damage occurred around
the chancellor's house.
"At about 8 p.m. the night of the storm, we had very
strong wind gusts that leveled three
large trees Chancellor Richard Eakin
said. "The first to fall was a large oak
that landed in the backyard. Later a
second tree fell across 5th Street in
front of the Career Services building
Eakin said, the last tree, a large
oak, fell onto his house on Jarvis Street
There were several holes in the
sun-room roof, and about 50 tiles were
damaged on the roof overall Eakin
said, adding that no one was hurt in
the incident and that most of the repairs have already
been made.
"It was exciting for a few moments, though the
chancellor said. "For the most part I feel that Greenville
was extremely lucky. We were spared from any lasting
damage from the hurricane
According to Director of Facilities Planning. Design
and Construction Bruce L. Flye, Jr fallen tree limbs and
drenched lawns after the heavy rain were the extent of
Bertha's damage on campus.
Flye said no damage to any of the construction sites
was reported, so there should be no delays because of
the storm.

AP-Sophisticated tests on a wing
fragment from a TWA jumbo jet found
no trace of explosives, contradicting
an earlier test finding, a senior fed-
eral official said yesterday.
Original tests done by the Bureau
of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms had
shown a borderline positive reaction
indicating an explosive residue, but a
federal official in Washington who
spoke to The Associated Press on the
condition of anonymity said that was
not confirmed in later testing.
A source at the scene of the in-
vestigation had told the AP that traces
of explosive material were found on a
piece of wing recovered from the
downed jumbo jet
The source in Washington said it
was not unusual to have a quick, bor-
derline response that is not borne out
by later, more extensive testing Al-
though the wing doesn't have any
traces of explosive residue, investiga-
tors are eager to examine a large load
of additional metal, expected to be
salvaged today.
The search for bodies, wreckage
and evidence picked up today at the
scene of the crash of Flight 800 with
the arrival of a sophisticated Navy
salvage ship and more sonar mapping
of the ocean floor. Divers pulled up
six bodies Monday after locating a
section of the doomed plane's fuse-

Our View
By now, we're all likely to have heard about the down-
ing of TWA Flight 800 in New York. If not, well, the basics
are this: a week ago, a plane took off from Long Island
and blew up shortly thereafter, killing all 230 people
onboard. It's reportedly the second worst air disaster in
U.S. history, and it's got a lot of people worried.
Investigators have yet to announce an official reason
for the explosion, but rumors are flying about bombs and
terrorist attacks. Though officials had found no evidence
of a bomb in the wreckage at last report, the rumors are
certainly understandable. Terrorism is an increasing prob-
lem world-wide, and considering how many enemies the
U.S. has around the globe, it's amazing we haven't been
hit harder than we have.
In part, our seeming immunity to terrorism is due to
the strict policing of our borders and ports. We're so good
at it, in fact, that one has to wonder how so many guns
and drugs get into the country. But that's a column for
another time. Today we're talking about terrorism.
With the large influx of high-profile foreign athletes
to the Summer Olympics in Atlanta, public fear of terror-
ist attack has heightened since the downing of Flight 800.
What better time, the reasoning goes, for terrorists to at-
Terrorism has tack? The olymPics are a symbo1 �f h�Pe'of the possibil-
ity of a more peaceful future when the nations of the world
can come together without bloodshed.
The eyes of the world will be on Atlanta this summer,
making it a perfect symbolic target for anyone wanting to
make a statement. In addition, these games are being held
in America, the one nation on Earth that the great major-
ity of terrorist groups can agree is the source of all evil in
the universe. The danger is terrorism, the reasoning goes,
is very real.
As far as it goes, this line of thought is correct and
AmeriCQn logical. Terrorism is always a serious threat, especially for

terrorist Holy Grail. Terrorist groups around the world
are no doubt plotting ways to sneak a bomb or a suicide
truck onto the Olympic grounds. They're probably aching
to do it. They'd have to be. It only makes sense that they'd
want to blow up the Olympics.
But don't the Olympic officials know this? Haven't they
been braced for terrorist attack for a good two decades
now? Won't Olympic security be tight as a drum, tighter
even than normal American security?
Of course it will. Some places set up metal detectors
for Lollapalooza, for Go"d's sake! Why wouldn't the Olym-
pic security people be even better prepared?
This is not a call for anyone to get complacent about
terrorism, or for people to stop worrying about it. The
moment we do that, we open ourselves up to terrorist
But by the same token, we shouldn't go flying off the
handle screaming "Terrorism everytime something blows
up. Like in the story of the boy who cried wolf, repeated
false alarms could very well make us complacent, and that
would be a shame.
Remember, sometimes accidents just happen. Machines
malfunction and things explode. Let the authorities fin-
ish their investigation of TWA Flight 800, and if they find
evidence of terrorist activity, maybe then we can start wor-
rying about the Olympics.
Until then, however, we should just keep our mouths

At some point earlier this year, I
became an old man.
I'm not sure how it happened, but
here I am. It's the sort of thing that
creeps up on you. apparently. One day,
you wake up and realize that you're
old, when just the day before you had
still been a babe in swaddling clothes.
It doesn't seem that long ago that
I came to work for The East Carolin-
ian as a CD reviewer. I was an editor's
nightmare back then, the kind of
writer who grabs stuff without per-
mission, leaves behind a cryptic note
telling you he took it, then doesn't
show up with the story for two weeks.
I was a punk, and I'm just lucky the
people I worked for were so laid back
about it.
This was about four years ago.
just after Nirvana broke but before
Axel Rose's career ended. That's how
you measure time when you're a mu-
sic critic: who's hot. who's not.
Anyway, two years later I got re-
sponsible and conned the powers that
be into hiring me as editor of the
whole gosh-darned Lifestyle page. It
was the beginning of Fall Semester
'94 and i made enemies right out of
the box. Immediately following the
release of my first issue, we got a
bunch of angry phone calls from cam-
pus officials.
The whole Lifestyle section had
been made up of review material, it
seemed, much of it from concerts that
were at least a week old, and none of
which took place anywhere near
Greenville. We hadn't covered a single
campus event of which there were
many that first week, and the people
who organized those events were un-
derstandably miffed.
After an amazingly mild chewing
out from my boss, I had learned les-
son number one about newspaper
editing: we print news. It seems an
obvious enough concept now, but it
honestly didn't occur to me back then.
I've been struggling with it ever since,
as the inordinately large amount of
review material in my section shows.
Well, when you hire a reviewer to do
a reporter's job
So imagine my surprise when, at
the beginning of this summer, I looked
up from my desk to realize that 1 had
seniority over everybody else here. I
found myself giving unwanted advice
to other section editors on East Caro-
linian policy and reminiscing about
former employees that nobody else
remembered. I felt like Grandpa
Simpson rambling on about the early
days of radio.
Suddenly, I was a TEC veteran.
Me! The guy who kind of stumbled
won't go over the 5 free hour limit
and the few dollars a month here and
there won't add up to much. Then
we find that we're glued to the com-
puter screen for five hours in just one
sitting. Where did all of that time
go? Perhaps it was all the time it took
just to load up the art work for some
Joe's Homepage that we haphazardly
clicked on or we were scrolling
through pages of text to find an ar-
ticle in The New York Times The
hours begin to stack up.
This is the vulnerability that Bill
Gates is preying upon. He knows we
want to reduce our on-line time, to
eliminate all of the unwanted wading
and searching. In this light "Slate"
sounds pretty good, reducing our on-
line time by making it more efficient
But what happens when we all get
hooked on "Slate?" Bill Gates will
have the Netties in his pocket and
naturally, the $20 a year will increase.
Is it inevitable that Bill Gates will mo-
nopolize the Super Highway? Will this
cause the access companies to reduce
their rates? It is not likely that the
Internet access companies will feel
heat from "Slate" and the hourly rates
will increase. If "Slate" becomes prof-
itable in charging tolls for information
that other companies offer for free,
won't these companies see that they,
too, can cash in? Subscribing to on-
line magazines like "Slate" is similar
to trading up "Boardwalk" in a game
of "Monopoly you think you're get-
ting a fair trade, but you're only help-
ing the rich man get richer.

considered a bad risk by the people
in charge. Me! The guy who frantically
scrambles every week to come up with
at least one news story that won't bore
him to tears when I edit it. Me! The
guy whose only real newswriting ex-
perience is a conference call phone
interview with the lead singer of
Skinny Puppy.
How did this happen? What bi-
zarre Logan s Run fantasy world have
I woken up to? What weird cosmic
forces came into alignment to make
me the person who knows what's go-
ing on around here? How did I be-
come the old guy.
Actually, I guess it was just time.
No matter what we think when we're
young, time catches up with the best
of us. This is especially true in col-
lege, when you go from being a raw
beginner to a jaded pro in the space
of a scant four years. And then it's
over. Your college days end and you
move on to make room for the next
batch of people who think they know
And that's where I sit now. I'm in
spitting distance of my 28th birthday,
my too-long career as a graduate stu-
dent is about to end. and I bid fare-
well to my job as Lifestyle Editor of
The East Carolinian. The Lifestyle
page has been my baby for two years,
and I'm proud of what I've done with
her. But it's time for me to move on.
The guy who's replacing me is
another damned CD reviewer, but he's
leaner and tougher and meaner than
me. He's got attitude to spare and the
intellectual muscle to back it up, so
you mugs be good to him. Or he'll
bust your chops.
But such is the way of things.
Time goes on, people change, and in-
stitutions change with them. I think
I'm leaving my baby in good hands.

My Aunt Mildred was an
Diagnosed sometime long
before my birth with muscular
dystrophy, she spent most of
her life fighting off the slow
but sure deterioration of her
muscle fibers. By the time I
came along, she was bound to
an aluminum-frame walking
chair in which she could move
slowly around with what re-
mained of her leg power. Wid-
owed sometime after World
War II, she lived, of necessity,
with my likewise-widowed
You'd think, plugged as
she was into the shiny-pipe
machinework of the chair, that
she would be frightening to a
small child. That the spidery
chrome cyborg she and that
chair formed would make vis-
iting her a terrifying ordeal.
But that wasn't the case.
Aunt Mil (as she liked to be
called for reasons I've never
known) was kind and jovial,
with a sharp mind and a bit-
ing sense of humor that I've
tried to emulate in my own life.
Visiting her was a joy.
Unable to walk, she sat in
her chair and sewed endless
blankets, pot holders and
stuffed animals for her family
and friends. She sewed, I like
to think, in defiance of the dis-
ease that had stolen her legs
and would one day take away
her arms and hands and fin-
gers as well.
But when I was a kid, it
was just her legs. Her legs. I
remember staring at Aunt Mil's
legs sometimes as a child.
Twisted and nearly useless,
they poked out of her house-

an array of solos that evening.
The most impressive of the solos
that night was played by The Rhythm
Merchant a.k.a. Justin Harris, Doxy's
drummer. He is an unbelievable time
keeper. Somewhere, lodged in the
cerebral cortex of this man's brain, a
metronome is rapidly ticking. That is
the only explanation one could come
up with after hearing him crash down
on his China symbol. How loud was
that thing?
"What feeds us is live shows. If
the energy of the crowd is not there,
we're not there. We're all partici-
pants Harris said after climbing
down from his drum throne. It was so
cool to see a band just play all night
without a break. People got more than
their money's worth and that's what
keeps them coming back for more.
"Greenville is one of my favorite

Roots rock and the

Man, I really hate roots rock.
I was reminded of this with great
force recently, when Fiji, the new disc
from Col. Bruce Hampton and the Fiji
Mariners, came across my desk. As is
my habit as Lifestyle Editor. I listened
to the album before putting it out for
my writers. 1 do this so that I can give
my reviewers some idea of what a disc
sounds like before they take it home,
and to preview tons of new music in
case I want to take a review for my-
After one pass through the new
Col. Bruce, I knew this one was never
going to leave my hands. Not because
1 liked it, you understand. No, Fiji il-
lustrates a lot of what 1 hate most
about the roots rock movement, and
I knew I had to air these problems in
But I figured out early on that I
really didn't want to beat up on Col.
Bruce alone. He's not the only roots
rock offender out there, and it just
wouldn't be fair. So, if you're curious
as to what Fiji sounds like. I'll just
say this. It's okay, if you like that kind
of thing. I don't, and 1 think the al-
bum sucks. I'll be nice and give it a D.
And that's all I'm gonna say about
that. It's time to really get this col-
umn started. So here I go, saying a
few things that need to be said about
roots rock because nobody else seems
willing to talk about it
Where to begin? Well. I guess the
best thing to do would be to explain
what the root of the roots rock prob-
lem is. Basically, roots is just horribly
derivative. It's really nothing more
than a melding of the San Francisco
folk-jazz movement (popularized by
the Grateful Dead) and mid-80s alter-
native rock (as practiced by REM)
than it is a style all its own.
There's nothing inherently wrong
with either of these styles; they've
both produced some really good mu-
sic. But the Dead's folk-jazz stylings
were really only a vital musical force
for a few of years in the very late '60s
and very early 70s. By the time Jerry
Garcia and his pals had become fa-
mous, their music had lost a lot of
the spark that made it interesting. As
the cultural phenomenon of "The
Dead" grew, the real power of their
music died. It's almost like one choked

wh'en the first title track opens with a
growl and the sounds of a DJ scratch-

arfb'gant substance underneath.

of the earth after Dire Straits need not
wonder anymore. He appears next with
his trademark mellow guitar sound and
raspy vocals on "Darling Pretty
Just as the CD begins to appear
to have lost all of its original edge. Soul
Asylum and Belly bring back a little
more rock to Twister's roll. Unfortu-
nately, neither of these are the bands'
best works. "Broken" could be used to
describe Belly's sound as much as any-
thing they say. It's got a good beat
but disjointed vocals leave this one in
the mediocre pile.
KD Lang and Lisa Loeb & Nine
Stories take the soundtrack back to
its mellow state with a couple of love
songs, Lisa Loeb's being the better of
the two. "How" is a touching song that
carries shades of their first big hit
"Stay" (which, by the way, was also a
soundtrack song).
Red Hot Chili Peppers then man-
age to get their groove on with "Mel-
ancholy Mechanics Much more mel-
low than recent RHCP songs, it comes
complete with conga drums. A definite
highlight for fans into high groove.
Then, as you just about slip into a to-
tally relaxed state. Goo Goo Dolls jar
you back to reality with "Long Way
Down (Remix) With simply a rhythm
backing during the verses and south-
ern rock guitar during the choruses,
"Long Way Down" will have you check-
ing to make sure this is really the Goo
Goo Dolls.
As the disc begins to wind towards
its end, it starts to backtrack through
the sounds of earlier songs. Shania

vals Rusted Root's country beat with
another simple, catchy bluesy type
And last but least Twister calls
back the Van Halen brothers (minus
Sammy Hagar and Michael Anthony)
with "Respect the Wind This one's
another haunting song with gothic
sounding keyboards providing the
background while Eddie Van Halen
weaves a dank guitar masterpiece that
will draw respect from any guitar player
who gives it a listen.
Twister manages to bring together
musicians from all walks of life and
have them do what they do best While
this could be a recipe for a disjointed
musical nightmare, producers Joel Sill
and Budd Carr manage to put the
songs in a smoothly flowing pattern
that should be a huge success.
the other off.
REM has faced similar problems,
but handled them better. They real-
ized that their style was getting stale
as long ago as 1986 and their Life's
Rich Pageant album. That's why ev-
ery REM release since that one has
sounded markedly different from the
last. While it's led them into some
unwise territory on occasion (the
Beach-Boys-inspired Out of Time
comes to mind), anything is better
than stagnation.
The roots guys don't seem to be
able to make that distinction. They
take the stalest elements of folk-jazz
and alternative and blend them to-
gether into a bland paste of a musical
style, occasionally spicing things up
with a little blues-rock.
Of course, blues-rock itself died a
long time ago, despite the way its stink-
ing, desiccated corpse clings with
sticky muck-fingers to radio life. But I
guess that's just par for the course for
roots rock. It's zombie music, really,
an animated corpse of a style that
needs to be put down before it devours
anymore helpless rock fan brains.
Maybe that's too harsh, but when
I listen to roots I hear music that I got
tired of in high school (and for me, that
was a good nine years ago). A friend of
mine calls roots new music for people
who hate new music. I can't think of a
better description.
Roots is really trying to appeal to
people who really wish that Bad Com-
pany had never gone away. Rock radio
has used it to pull back all those 70s
rock fans who had strayed into coun-
try after Nirvana broke. It's a step back-
ward for rock music, and that's never
a good thing.
I suppose what realty upsets me
most about the roots movement is that
most of the people in it have talent,
but it's talent that's being wasted on
music that's already been done. Hav-
ing influences is fine, but it's what you
do with those influences that makes
your own work worthwhile.
Take Primus, for example. Primus
obviously takes their inspiration from
70s progressive rock, most specifically
from the band King Crimson. But you
won't hear Primus simply paying lip
service to those bands. Primus takes
the work of their predecessors and puts
their own spin on it forging their own
brand of prog rock that's distinctly dif-
ferent than what has gone before.
The roots people (especially Phish)
could leam a lot from Primus.
Likewise, they could do worse
than to look at the work of Tom Waits.
Ostensibly a blues artist. Waits has
taken that venerable style into com-
pletely new and bizarre territory' by
mixing in European folk music sensi-
bilities and a kind of metallic tribal beat
that makes his work more a sort of tin-
pan industrial than anything else. But
with his solid jazz roots. Waits is mak-
ing music that's unclassifiable out of
the styles of the past
In the end, it's the lack of that
kind of creative spark that makes roots
rock suck. In playing it safe with its
influences, in holding bands like the
Grateful Dead in far too much of an
exalted position, roots rock is just plain
boring. Just once, I'd like a roots band
to surprise me. Just once, I'd like to
hear something from them that doesn't
sound quite like anything else I've
heard before. Just once. I'd like them
to show a little originality.
But as it stands, just like the paint-
bv-numbers Dunk craD being churned
out by Green Day and their ilk, roots
rock is nothing but another lame pop
music style practiced by musicians who
are too lazy to try something truly in-
It's a security blanket for the Me
Generation, and they're way too old
for security blankets. And it's doubly
appalling that people of the current
generation are buying it up. Can't we
figure out a musical style of our own?

coats and dresses, leaving her feet
turned at strange, unnatural angles.
They were sick-room pale, and al-
ways, now that I think about it,
That only strikes me as odd
now. How could someone with her
physical limitations have shaved her
legs so diligently? Without an ounce
of mobility, how did she reach the
backs of her calves? The answer, of
course, is that she didn't. My grand-
mother must have shaved her legs
for her.
With my healthy body, it's hard
to imagine how frustrating that
would be. To have to trust someone
else with a razor, to depend on them
for such a trivial social affectation,
would drive me insane. At the very
least, I think I would become horri-
bly bitter.
But not Aunt Mil. Though I'm
remembering her through the eyes
of a child (which tend to miss such
nuances), she never seemed bitter.
She was a kindly and humane
woman, one of the only people in
my family with what I would call an
even temper.
I guess that's why it seems so
fitting that she's the only person I've
ever known who could raise live Sea
That was the other thing that
made visiting Aunt Mil such a treat,
you see: she had aquariums. And not
just one or two, either. One entire
side of my grandmother's living
room was wallpapered with the
things. To my young eyes, Aunt Mil
had the whole ocean in her house.
And, yes, she had Sea Monkeys.
But when I finally saw them, they

weren't at all what I expected. At
first, I didn't even realize what they
were. All I saw was a tank full of
tiny beige flotsam that barely
seemed alive. Shaped like sea
horses, the flotsam propelled itself
around the tank with almost imper-
ceptible motions that could have
just as easily been caused by the
aquarium breather unit.
I thought Aunt Mil was grow-
ing food for one of her flesh-eating
fish at first. But when she told me
that those tiny things were Sea
Monkeys, something terrible opened
up in my head.
Sea Monkeys? Those couldn't
be Sea Monkeys. No, Sea Monkeys
were pink humanoid creatures with
webbed hands and catcher's mitts.
They were smart and cheerful, and
you could boss them around. These
things were barely big enough to
see, much less boss around. There
had to be some mistake.
No, Aunt Mil assured me. Those
were Sea Monkeys.
And it was right there, kneel-
ing on the floor of my
grandmother's living room at the
twisted feet of my giant metal spi-
der aunt, that I learned my first
harsh lesson about consumerism:
Sea Monkeys are not primates. So
even when they do come to life, they
turn out not to have been worth the
That's not the way Aunt Mil saw
it, though. A child of the early 20th
century, she was delighted and
amazed by the scientific achievement
the Sea Monkeys represented. She
took great pleasure in knowing that
she could mail-order a paper enve-
lope full of powder and turn it into
real, living organisms in just one
week's time.
She didn't care that they didn't
look like the Sea Monkeys in the ads.
More importantly, she wasn't swayed
by any of that stuff about teaching
them tricks, either. She just wanted
her Sea Monkeys to live and grow.
The fact that they were nothing more
than nearly microscopic brine shrimp
didn't matter in the slightest.
I'm sure her Sea Monkeys were
glad of it, too. I can only imagine the
endless torture I would have put
them through, disappointed in their
appearance and pushing them mer-
cilessly to team tricks their tiny brine
shrimp brains weren't capable of
But Aunt Mil, who perhaps more
than anyone had good reason to want
little pink slaves to order around,
could have cared less about that kyjd
of power. Her Sea Monkeys made fifcr
happy by simply existing, and that
was enough. �"L
It was only years later that I was
able to see all this, of course. After
reading up on Zen philosophy and
trying to figure out the secrets of the
universe on my own, I thought back
to my Aunt Mil and her Sea Monkeys
and realized that I'd had the real se-
cret in front of me all along: enjoy
what you can, privately curse the rest,
and get on with it.
In the end, maybe that's all we
need to know.
the most glaring signal of what was
to come. He managed to direct his
own script of Reservoir Dogs by
finding investors who believed in his
talent and didn't care if he was a
no-name who had zero box office
clout. The result Tarantino directed
the critical and box office hit Res-
ervoir Dogs instead of someone like
Joel Schumacher.
But Schumacher could never di-
rect anything like Reservoir Dogs
because he, like much of the accom-
plished talent in Hollywood, plays
it too safe. What makes Hollywood
newcomers like Robert Rodriguez

simple fact that they push genre to
its extremes and take chances, each
in their own unique way.

smash in China long before it ever
hit America, is possibly the best ac-
tion star in the last ten years be-
cause he is the one choreographing
and performing all his own outra-
geous stunts.
Possibly the biggest reason for
the success of the new breed is the
simple fact that they are artistic and
fun at once. It required Hong Kong
director and visual wizard John Woo
to translate a lame Jean-Claude Van
Damme piece into an over-the-top ac-
tion joy ride. These filmmakers are
good at what they do, and unlike
other new Hollywood hotshots like
Jan DeBont, they don't let their egos
affect their art (why exactly does
DeBont need a $100 million budget
to direct Godzilla?).
the new breed represents a dec,
sire to restructure Hollywood, or at
least provide an alternative to it.
While box office success is a neces-
sary evil, the new breed knows that
playing it safe and spending count-
less millions on production and tpj-
ent does not necessarily guarantee
a hit. Pulp Fiction netted mote
money than many major Hollywood
releases, such as the disappointing
Judge Dredd, because it offered
enticingly fresh material on a mejre
$8 million budget. j-
Whether or not The
Frighteners is destined to be a hit
remains to be seen. Summer is not
a good time for underdogs, espe-
cially with mammoths like Indepen-
dence Day eating up the competi-
tion. But competition is what the
standard Hollywood fluff needs, and
the likes of Jackson are going to disji
it out. If The Frighteners ge,s.
knocked out, Jackie Chan will jump,
right in when his Super Cop opens
this Friday. j .
Thanks to the new breed, un-
derground cinema is slowly rising to
the top. All I can say is, it's about

This is the final
golf rating of
courses near ECU
Craig Perrott
Assistant Sports Editor
Note: This is the sixth and final
installment of a series of reviews of golf
courses in the GreenvillePitt County
Greenville has a hidden golf trea-
The price is unbelievable; it only
costs $3.50 for eighteen holes. It's the
truth. There's no nine hole rate, but it's
no problem to get eighteen in.
All of the fairways are very close
together, so it's not a long walk at alL
Some of the fairways are straight on,
but most of them have some sort of
hazard, making this is a fairly difficult
The bunkers are filled with pebbles
instead of sand, and the water hazards
stem from a large waterfall in the cen-
ter of the course. One fairway travels
through a cave before branching out
into the open.
The trees are very small, so there
is no shade at all. Hey, I'm a poet and
don't know it One of the trees is actu-
ally in the middle of a fairway. That's
not the only thing obstructing the fair-
ways. There are bricks on some of the
greens to make putting difficult
One of the holes has two cups to
shoot for. You have to get it in the first
hole so it will travel down a tunnel to
the actual green.
You can't play out of the bunkers
or out of bounds. You have to take a
drop and a stroke if your not on the
putting surface.
You know, with all
this difficulty, I
thought it was a
little strict to have
most of the holes
classified as par

quality of turf

the green, the fair-
way, the fringe and the rough.
You don't need a caddie, or even a
bag for that matter. You can only play
with one club, and that's a putter. They
don't have carts (although they do have
go-carts here, but you can't ride them
on the course), but like I said, you don't
need them since the course is such a
short distance.
The food is pretty good, but they
only offer snack items such as popcorn,
candy, hot dogs and chips. The snack
bar has a great game room, and you
can collect tickets from the games to
be cashed in for prizes like a tiny plas-
tic dinosaur or a miniature football hel-
met you can put on your thumb.
If you haven't picked up on it yet
I'm talking about a miniature golf
course. If you caught on right away, you
probably think I'm really stupid or
you're panting in desperation for me to
tell you where you can find this colored-
ball excitement
Well (drum roll, please), it's the
Greenville Fun
Park. It's easy to
get to. From the
ECU campus, take

vard and turn left
This road will turn
into 264 alternate,

straight until you

the Pitt County
Fairground on the
left as well.
Rating: On my usual scale rang-
ing from driver to putter, with putter
being the best I don't think it's fair to
rate the Fun Park. So what is fair for a
miniature golf course? On a scale rang-

a good thing. �
Kids, it's been a great summer for
golf and I hope these reviews of the
courses in Greenville, Ayden, Farmville
and Grifton can help you decide where
the best places are to play. If you've got
the means, play at a different one of
these quality establishments every time
you tee it up. See you at the links!
Not only will the Marching Pi-
rates be marching in Dowdy-Ficklen
this season but expect to see them in
RFK Stadium in Washington, D.C.
On September 29, approximately
220 ECU band members will travel to
D.C. to perform in a halftime show
during the RedskinsJets game.
Christopher Knighten, who is
heading into his fourth year as direc-
tor of the Marching Pirates, said ECU
finally got the bid after trying for the
past two years. ECU did not receive a
bid during the 1994 or '95 season.
"Every NFL team goes through
a selection process Knight said.
"Most NFL teams have an entertain-
ment committee that chooses who will
perform at halftimes
Knighten knew about this pro-
cess when, while attending graduate
school at the University of Colorado,
they played at a Denver Broncos'
The process begins by sending a
videotape of various routines per-
formed throughout the season. The
committee reviews the tape and se-
lects a school to perform. Not since
the 1960s has the ECU Marching band
performed at a Redskins game.
The band will leave following the
Sept 28 game between ECU and Cen-
tral Florida. They will roll out early
Sunday morning en route to D.C.
ECU will be the only band to per-
form during halftime, and local fans
will get to see a glimpse of what they
will perform in RFK Stadium during
the first home football game on Sept
7 against East Tennessee State. Then
during the Central Florida game, the
Marching Pirates will perform the
whole show for the ECU crowd. A
James Bond theme will prevail dur-
ing the half-time show on the 29th.
This will be a new routine that
hasn't been used in the past Even
during home football games the
Marching Band varies their shows.
"We'll never do a show more than
twice, so there is some variety for the
home crowds Knighten said.

The Marching Pirates, seated below the fans at this year's
Liberty Bowl, will entertain during the RedskinsJets game.
The marching band, which always
provides the ECU halftime shows,
hasn't had a chance to receive national
exposure like this, and Knighten says
they are really excited to get this
"We have been trying for some-
thing like this for years and I think
this is a big step for us to continue to
grow. In 1993 we had 140 people in
the band and we have grown almost
50 percent and that is uncommon to
grow that quickly
The rapid growth can be attrib-
uted to a lot of things, according to
"The success of the football team,
the publicity we have received and the
two bowl games helped us in expo-
sure Knighten said. "We have also
had a very aggressive recruiting cam-
paign, which includes a variety of
people from different majors
Knighten says that not all band
members are music majors. He says
about half are music majors and the
rest represent a wide variety of ma-
jors, from biology to pre-med.
To what does he attribute their
growing success that allows the band
to continue its growth?
"It's a combination of the success
of the athletic department and the
recruiting campaign
Whatever the combination,
Knighten hopes this is the first of
many shows that will gain them na-
tional exposure and keep the march-
ing band program growing.
"This is a really significant step
for us and it will allow us to continue
to grow

Team USA strives for gold medals
(AP) - With a dozen medals al-
ready, it's news now if an American
swimmer doesn't win and Tom Dolan
made news yesterday morning.
Dolan, trying to become
America's first double gold medalist
at the Atlanta Games, instead failed
to qualify for the 400-meter freestyle.
So did teammate John Piersma, mak-
ing this the first time at least one
American hasn't made a swimming
final here.
"I'm just overall kind of fatigued
said Dolan, an asthmatic who cap-
tured America's first gold medal of the
games. "A lot of it is just the pressure
that's kind of set in
Dolan's surprising defeat came
despite a home-field advantage that
had already paid off in the games' first
Huge crowds are showing up at
nearly every venue, ready to hoist
their red, white and blue flags and
unleash that familiar chant: "USA,

one day at least the Americans looked
virtually unbeatable at the Olympic
Except for the shocking failure
of four-time gold medalist Janet Evans,
the United States seemed to be excel-
ling all over Atlanta.
The swim-
mers added to
their medal haul
Monday. The box-
ers remained un-
beaten. So did the
Dream Team.

ball and women's

MLB trade sends
slugger back to
(AP) - It had been eight years
since Eddie Murray tried on a Balti-
more Oriole uniform, and even
longer since he smiled while wear-
ing one.
Murray cracked jokes, grinned
broadly and seemed genuinely eager
to get re-acquainted with the Balti-
more media at a news conference
Monday to mark his return to his
first major-league team.
Years earlier. Murray left town
in a huff after being criticized by
former owner Edward Bennett Will-
iams and receiving harsh treatment
from local columnists and broadcast-
All that was forgotten Monday,
when Murray reclaimed his retired
No. 33.

cited about me being here
Murray, obtained Sunday from
the Cleveland Indians in a trade for
pitcher Kent Mercker, was given a
standing ovation before Monday
night's game. A sign in center field
It was a festive occasion, and
Murray made it a memorable one by
hitting his 492nd career home run
in the Orioles' 9-5 loss to the Min-
nesota Twins.
During his final troubled year
in Baltimore back in 1988, Murray
repeatedly refused to acknowledge
the fans' cheers with a curtain call.
Monday night, after his two-run
homer, he responded to a prolonged
standing ovation by stepping out of
the dugout and waving his cap.
"Hopefully, there's more of that
to come he said of his home run.
Murray went l-for-4 as the Ori-
oles' designated hitter. The 40-year-
old slugger had become a part-time
player in Cleveland, but he is ex-
pected to be an everyday player for
"First of all, he can still play
and he can still hit general man-
ager Pat Gillick said. "Secondly, it
is known throughout baseball
circles that he was -a very positive
force in the Cleveland clubhouse.
So that's something that can't hurt
any club, and certainly not the Ori-
Murray now needs only eight
more home runs to join Willie Mays
and Hank Aaron as the only play-
ers in baseball history to have 500
homers and 3,000 hits.
"Believe it or not, I've never
considered myserf a home run hit-
ter Murray said. "I'm never try-
ing to get up and do that. I've had
decent success just trying to hit the
ball hard
Murray was drafted by the Ori-
oles in 1973 and went on to aver-
age 28 home runs and 99 RBIs over
12 seasons. But his relationship
with the franchise soured in 1988.
and his uniform number was retired
one year after that.
Monday, he brought back
memories of years past with a shot
that was gone as soon as he hit it.
"I didn't think it was possible
(to return) Murray admitted be-
fore the game. "Once I was gone, I
didn't think about it again. The
fondest memory is having my uni-
form retired, and now it's un-re-
tired. I'm here again, and I'm pretty
happy right now
So are his teammates.

The most exciting clash Monday came
at 125 pounds, where Floyd
Mayweather had the pro-American
crowd at Georgia Tech rocking when
he stopped Bakhtiyar Tileganov of
Kazakstan in the second round.
In Birmingham, Ala the U.S.
men's soccer team rebounded from an

game is today in Washington, D.C.
The third day of the Olympics
actually began on a disappointing
note for the United States. Evans, who
won four swimming golds at Seoul
and Barcelona, failed to make it out
of the preliminaries in the 400
freestyle, her best event
She complained that Ireland's
Michelle Smith was allowed to swim
despite a dispute over her eligibility.
Smith went on to win the gold, be-
coming the first two-time gold medal-
ist of the Atlanta Games.
Evans still could tie Bonnie Blair
for the most gold medals by an Ameri-
can woman if she can win the 800
freestyle on Thursday. However, 15-
year-old teammate Brooke Bennett
has the edge in that event
"I don't think there's as many fast
girls in the 800 Evans countered. "I
just have to get my confidence back
and I think I'll be OK
The United States was leading
the medal chase through three days
with four golds, nine silvers and two
bronzes. The swimmers had done
most of the work, capturing all but
three of those medals.

followed Botsford across the line in
the 100 backstroke; the U.S. team of

Catherine Fox and Jenny Thompson
set an Olympic record in the 400
freestyle relay; Tom Malchow finished
second in the 200 butterfly; and Gary
Hall Jr. was edged at the wall by Rus-
sian Alexander Popov in a stirring 100
freestyle final.
The Russians had the most gold
medals (seven), getting another from
