K I s l STUDIES ISSUES
STAF1 w K I ! I' R
Due to one particular school district in
Oakland. CA. ebonies has received a lot of
attention over the past several months. The
issue of exactly what constitutes black
English and whether it should be taught has
sparked debate, but there is still a lot of con-
fusion over exactly what ebonies is. and what
the controversy is all about.
Two professors of the English department,
Dcbra O'Neal and Reginald Watson, have
their own insights and opinions on the ebon-
ies issue, and attempted to clear up the mis-
conceptions surrounding this topic.
'Ebonics is a term that is a combination of
ebony and phonics, and from what I under-
stand the word had its origins in 1973. so this
whole debate has been around since 1973, but
even before then Watson said.
Simply put. ebonies is defined as black
English. The Oakland schools, it seemed,
planned to teach black English in their class-
rooms, and that was what began the uproar.
"What's happened is, the media has taken
a hold of this, and the media says, they're
going to teach classes in black English, and
teach you how to speak black English
O'Neal said. "California has no intentions of
teaching people to speak black English. So it's
really leen blown out of proportion
"Originally, it was thought that these peo-
ple, in their original proposal, wanted to have
ebonies taught as a separate foreign lan-
guage Watson said. "They came back and
recanted that story after there was a lot of
Part of Oakland's incentive for their action
was that in attempting to call ebonies a sepa-
rate language, they would therefore qualify for
additional federal funding.
"The controversy stems from the tact that
California was trving to get it legally declared
a language O'Neal said "There's a lot of
argument in linguistic circles, but the primarv
agreement is that it's not a language, it's a

ORIENTATION UF.NERA1 INFO ISSUES
5TA F F vs H I I I H
While professors grade students regularly, students only
have one opportunity to evaluate their instructors � the
student opinion survey. Although manv universities
release the results of these surveys to students. EX offi-
cials say they have no plans to do so.
"Student Opinion Surveys are not public documents,
therefore they cannot Ik- released to students said
Robert Thompson, director of Planning and Institutional
Unlike some other laws pertaining to university poli-
cies, the survey law is determined by the state and not by
the I Iniversiry of North (irolina board. A majority of the
problem in releasing results to students, according to
Thompson, is that many will not be able to accurately
judge the results of a student opinion survey
"Presently, the university mean in evaluating profes-
sors is 4.3 on a 5.0 scale Thompson said. "There's real-
Iv not much difference between a 4.0 and a 4.5. but sru-
dents will rate a 4.5 as higher, even if it is just a matter ot
"The reason that the form exists is because tacultv
believe students have a right to comment on how to
revise a course Thompson said. "It is also a useful
source in determining merit raises, promotion and tenure
When evaluating a faculty member, Thompson
explained that the Student Opinion Survev is one com-
ponent among others, such as Peer Evaluations and
course syllabi, which relate to the faculty member's
methods of teaching. "What one looks for is not the
results of just one course, but a trend of how they tacul-
ty are perceived in an overall pattern Thompson said.
Currently, the form is undergoing tacultv delibera-
tions, and the revisions to the forms will be taken to the
tacultv senate some time in March. Thompson said the
modifications will probably be slight, although the final
outcome of the faculty senate decision will ultimately
determine what changes the forms will undergo. In order
to make effective changes, students were given two stu-
dent opinion survevs lo fill out last semester. One of
them was a "pilot" form with different questions, which
will be used as a comparison lo the older version.
"I think student opinion surveys arc reliable, but even
though they are good indicators, they're not the onlv indi-
cators Thompson said. "Above all. you don't want the
forms to become a popularity contest with students.
'Thompson feels that when students begin "shopping"
for professors based on survev results, faculty become
subject to an unfair pressure and perform for the wrong
"Professors should just be concentrating on how to
become better teachers Thompson said.

The National Kidnev Foundation of North Carolina has denoted
March as National Kidney Month to increase awareness of kidney-
diseases and related issues.
"I think it is important for everyone to know about National
Kidnev Month because there are several warning signs of kidney
disease said Julia Goff of the National Kidney Foundation of
The National Kidney Foundation offers six warning signs
which people should be aware of. These warning signs are: burn-
ing oi difficulty during urination; more frequent urination, partic-
ularlv at night; passage of blood in urine; puffmess around eyes;
swelling of hands and feet; pain in the small of the back below the
ribs which is not aggravated by movement; and high blood pres-
sure. . .
While most college students may not be concerned with kid-
nev disease, it is an important topic for people of this age.
"I don't think a lot of people realize this Goff said. "They
tend to think you are born with a disease which causes kidney fail-
ure and not that there are other causes
Drug abuse, abuse of over-the-counter medications and high
blood pressure can cause kidney failure. Abuse of over-the-
counter medicines involves taking several of these products a day,
not the occasional use for headaches or other illnesses.
"When I sav drug abuse is a cause, I'm talking about hard-core
drugs like cocaine and heroine Goff said. "But abuse of over-the-
counter medications includes things like Tylenol and products
"I think these factors are important for realizing other outside
things cause kidnev failure Goff said.
The focus of this month will also be on urinary topics related
to kidnev diseases. This includes urinary tract infections, prostate
cancer and bed wetting.
The National Kidnev Foundation reports that urinary tract
infections account for 10 million doctors visits annually and that
30,000 men die from prostate cancer each year.

Video game drawing Tar Heel gamblers to South
DILLON COUNTY, S.C. (AP) - North Carolina gamblers long lured north
for Virginia's lottery games now also can look south for their lucky day in a
South Carolina video gaming parlor.
Since April, several parlors offering video poker, video bingo, video keno
and video blackjack have opened in Dillon County near the North Carolina
Some can't resist coming.
Vera Frederick, a 42-year-old soldier at Fort Bragg, drives to South
Carolina to gamble at least once a week.
On a recent afternoon, she turned away from a trip to the beach to make

hours as $40 grew into $165. Her winning streak carried her to three differ-

New licensing system could change life for teen-agers
RALEIGH (AP) - The safety considerations of tougher driving restrictions
on teen-agers are not worth debating.
Supporters of a graduated drivers license say increased supervision of
teen drivers will save lives. Few lawmakers are arguing with them, and
already a state House committee has approved a proposal that would take
away full driving privileges from teen-agers until they are 18 years old.
But both parents and economists will tell you that teen-agers' access to
cars is more than just a safety issue. Today, teen-agers are a force in the
American economy, both as workers and consumers. The car, for many, is
their means to get to jobs, shopping malls, movie theaters and after-school
meetings and events.
Smith said new limits on teen-age drivers aren't likely to cause business-
es to go belly-up. But a new licensing system will certainly change the lives
of teen-agers and their parents, and could send a shudder through the busi-
nesses that depend on teens for dollars and for work, he said.
Scientists find gene that might help people lose
NEW YORK (AP) - Talk about a feverish attempt to lose weight: Scientists
have discovered a gene that might someday help people shed pounds in
exchange for a slightly higher body temperature.
The gene appears to make people burn off calories, and it might help
explain why some people are prone to getting fat.
The hope is that researchers can find a drug to make it work harder, so
the body will burn off more calories rather than storing them as fat.
That would raise body temperature. A person might be able to lose five
pounds a year with every one-tenth of a degree increase in body tempera-
ture, estimated researcher Craig Warden of the University of California,
It will take further study to see how much of a temperature increase peo-
ple could safely stand, he said. He and colleagues at Davis and elsewhere
announce the discovery in the March issue of the journal Nature Genetics.
Scientists haven't known how people's bodies regulate their weight,
steering them toward a given weight despite dieting or bingeing, Stunkard
said. The newly discovered gene could play a big role, he said.

'WHERE THE SIM ACWAYS SHIKES'
Jello, American's billion-
dollar dessert, 100 years old
LE ROY, N.Y. (AP) - In March 1897, a young carpenter trying to make his for-
tune in patent medicines mixed fruit flavoring into gelatin and began selling
the sweet concoction door-to-door. His wife christened it Jell-O.
Thus was born 20th-century America's most ubiquitous dessert, a wobbly
standby at church potlucks, school cafeterias and summer camps as far back
as anyone can recall.
Within a decade, Jell-O was a million-dollar business, but not for its inven-
tor. Pearle Bixby Wait was still building houses and hoping to strike it rich
with a homemade laxative, cough syrup or foot remedy
Those initial door-to-door sales had never picked up, so Wait had sold the
Jell-O ttademark in 1899 to the wealthiest man in town for $450. When he
died in 1915 at age 44, his widow had to take in sewing jobs and boarders to
feed the family.
"I often say to our kids, Just think, we could be rich and unhappy and liv-
ing in the Bahamas exclaims his granddaughter, Martha Lapp Tabone, 55,
an elementary school teacher in this town of 8,500 in rural western New York.
"It would have been nice she added, any hint of wistfulness dispelled
by a burst of laughter.
Jell-O left here in 1964, taking along many of its 330 employees to a new
home in Dover, Del and leaving a bitter aftertaste that lingered for years.
Now its 100th birthday has sprung hopes of a modest payback.
Latter-day owner Kraft Foods, which boasts a billion dollars in annual Jell-
O sales, recently donated 550,000 to convert an unoccupied, century-old
stone building behind the Le Roy Historical Society into a Jell-O museum.
It will highlight Jell-O's versatility, artful marketing and enduring popu-
larity -13 boxes of "America's Most Famous Dessert" are sold every second in
the United States.
Wait's simple idea of adding raspberry; strawberry, lemon and orange fla-
vors to gelatin - animal tissue reduced to a fibrous protein called collagen -
wasn't an instant hit for the second owner. Orator Woodward.
A few months after the affluent entrepreneur began churning out iit's
formula at his Gcnesee Pure Foods factory he tried to hock the trademark to
his plant supervisor for S35.
That offer was rejected, so Woodward tried a marketing gimmick still in
use today: He gave away thousands of Jell-O molds and recipes at fairs,
church socials and picnics.
Bowls of Jell-O were handed out to immigrants passing through Ellis
Isiand and a cute, 4-year-old Jell-O Girl was featured in magazine ads.
Although it has endured more than its share of denigration - one writer
labeled it "that inland jellyfish of many hues" - Jell-O's staying power seems
to hinge greatly on its ability to find new forms, in salads, yogurts, snacks and
The Jell-O exhibit will tour nationwide after Labor Day; then settle next
year in Le Roy. 25 miies southwest of Rochester. .Among its attractions: an
interactive kitchen for youngsters, playbacks of Jack Benny's Jell-O commer-
cials in the 1930s, EEC printouts of brain waves and their resemblance to
electrical waves produced by Jell-O when wiggled.
This could land Le Roy on the tourist trail, said Lynne Belluscio, the his-
torical society's director. "It's a popular product that people have a lot of fond
memories about Belluscio said. "In the late 1800s, early 1900s, there was a
lot of American ingenuity taking place in small towns like this one, much of
it unknown or forgotten
Indeed, Jello isn't Le Roy's only claim to fame: the first stringless string
bean was developed here in 1887.

of using ebonies in the classroom,
according to O'Neal and Witson, is
to recognize that black English is a
legitimate variation of the English
language, no more improper than
southern or northern English

dialect as southern dialect, or any-

said. "It is only devalued because

Both professors pointed out
that modem black language has its
origins in the Wat African lan-
guages that were spoken by the
slaves who were transported from
those countries. Those slaves
incorporated their own language
patterns with those of southern
English, and that dialect was
passed down through the genera-
tions. Understandably, it has
evolved through the years, but
today's Mack language patterns
still contain specific examples of
Wat African language patterns.

ebonies, or black English, has some
of its foundations, in Wsst African
culture and dialect
While some critics, ONeal said,
think of black English as lazy or stu-
pid, it is actually part of an oral tra-
dition which has survived.
"Black English needs to be
respected, because it's a valid
dialect; it's got a beautiful and rich
culture and history O'Neal said.
However, it has been pointed
out that many aspects of black
English are virtually the same as
southern dialect, and there are
many other dialects used in other
regions which have their own slang
terms and rules of syntax. Nor are
these peculiarities of language con-
fined only to race or geographical
region. Certain occupations have
their own words and phrases which
would not be used in everyday
English. Differences in language
and the ways in which it is used is a,
part of what makes the English lan-
guage so diverse.
"When we talk about differ-
ences, we have to be careful
Witson said. "I don't like it when
they look at ebonies as just a black

Miics: what is it and what does it mean?
For many, this question is answered easily but for others it is not. Many don't have a clue.
Ebonics is derived from the words "ebony" and "phonics For many this causes a racial argu-
ment. Is there really such a thing as black phonics?
And if so, is this the real issue?
The purpose of ebonies was to train all teachers to understand black English and provide bet-
ter teaching methods to help students learn standard English. What a great concept. Let's teach
the teachers to better understand their students. If the teachers can understand the students
and the students understand the teacher, won't that make for a better learning environment?
So why is it called ebonies?
Black children are not the only students who have problems distinguishing between correct
and incorrect English. Perhaps this title was the downfall of the whole program. It started in the
Oakland school system and its debate started around 1973. For many, this title is a symbol of our
racist society. The title "ebonies" is very offensive to people of all racial backgrounds. It seems
as though they are trying to say that blacks aren't capable of learning the same way others do. We
all know that this is not true; but what are people who do not understand the basics of ebonies
supposed to think?
The concept of training teachers to understand how students speak in their home environ-
ment and applying that to how they should speak in the competitive world is great, but we do
not feel that it should be called ebonies.
Not only do black children speak this dialect, but white children, Asian children and Latino
children do as well. According to two ECU English professors, ebonies is a valid dialect that has
its roots in West African culture. It is just as valid a dialect as a southern dialect. Note the word
dialect. A dialect is not a completely separate language.
One professor noted that in order to receive federal funding, supporters needed to have ebon-
ies declared a separate language by the government. We believe this struggle for funding com-
plicated the issue.
Ebonics is controversial in itself thanks to the connotations associated with it. We are fully in
support of programs that help teachers and students better communicate, but trying to have
ebonies categorized as a separate language has only made things worse.
Pro-choice is the only choice
To the Editor,
I ask for forgiveness that this tetter
may not seem to be addressed to you
but rather to one of your opinion
columnists. The never-ending debate
of pro-lifepro-choice has raised its
ugly head again and I am compelled to
respond. So Ms. Marie Dibuduo pre-
pare to hear an earful.
You are obviously pro-life or anti-
abortion as many newspapers prefer. I
can only guess that you could not be a
Christian. The parables in the New
Testament teach us that not only will
God forgive us but that we must also
forgive each other. I forgive you for you
close-mindedness. God, the ultimate
liberal, gives us freedom to make
choices and accepts us. Whether we
choose a sect of Christianity, Judaism,
Islam or another religion makes no dif-
ference to Him and we need to be
more accepting of one another, but
before you condemn us as killers,
aren't you trying to kill us with your
vehemence? According to some of the
high Christian churches, greed is one
of the Seven Deadly Sins.
You must be under the deluded
opinion that women ask for rape when
you said, "My suggestion is not to have
sex until you are ready to be a moth-
er Most dictionaries will define rape
as illicit sexual intercourse by force.
The key word here is force in case you
missed it; these women are not
"sleeping around. The problem of
rape is probably the best argument for
abortion to remain a woman's choice
but another equally good supporting
word would be incest. Ail women and
teenage girls should be allowed to
choose among options in lieu of retain-
ing an internal reminder of the
hideous act committed against them. I
suspect darned few pro-lifers question
this option under circumstances so
illegal. And then there is date rape,
alcohol blackout rape, and a few other
supposedly gray areas. These are not
By now, it must be apparent to you
that I am pro-choice. I am not pro-
abortion, I do not believe that every
pregnancy should be aborted, but I
believe that women should retain the
right to choose for themselves. But
just a small reminder, while rape and
incest are the best reasons for a
choice, history has shown that some
women would rather risk killing them-
selves with coat hangers or medical
quacks and this is why the law exists,
to protect them from such harm. You
claim to have never met anybody who
didn't grieve for having once opted to
have an abortion. You have now met
one and though I may die barren, I do
not regret the decision I made 17
years ago this spring. An I am gutsy

Violent crime in Pitt County and
the rest of the country is an issue
about which ail citizens should be
concerned. Within three months,
Pitt County (especially West
Greenville) has seen a rash of violent
crime that could have been avoided
or deterred with sound, meaningful
policies and plans. Further, people
like City Councilman Chuck Autry
have organized informal gatherings
of elected officials, clergymen and
professionals to discuss the crime
issues. Unfortunately, many who
attended the meetings want to
grandstand, and they accomplish
absolutely nothing. I suggest a plan

Curfew laws should encompass a
dusk-to-dawn program to combat
youth violence. Thanks to President
Clinton, the Justice Department has
issued some guidelines to promote
effective curfew programs. Centers
should be staffed with volunteers
and social service professionals.
Cash for handguns programs
involve clergy, business owners and
elected officials conducting periodi-
cal fund-raisers. Stolen and unregis-
tered handguns can be exchanged at
designated centers in exchange for
cash or gift certificates, loo many
guns are in the wrong hands.
An around-the-clock hot line
could be established to counsel drug
users and guarantee anonymity. The
zero tolerance plan involves distrib-
uting anti-drug literature in the
forms of flyers, radio and television
ads. These ads would reach the gen-
eral public and educate them about
the dangers and penalties of illegal
drug use. Further, every church
should provide counseling and semi-
nars for drug addicts. Additionally,
community ministries may play a
role. They could spread the Good
News with residents, oarrirnhirlv in
economically deprived neighbor-
hoods. Such ministries will restore
hope and optimism in residents feel-
ing a sense of powerlessness.
In brief, a digital display system
could coordinate crime related infor-
mation from the police department.
Violent crime and high-drug areas
will be displayed on this system as
well as current trends.
A neighborhood watch coordina-
tor should be assigned to neighbor-
hoods to report suspicious activities.
Citizens watching their own neigh-
borhoods could complete weekly
summary reports and submit them to

should be provided with a two-way

be established if funds permit.

There have been many controver-
sial issues out about our Student
Government Association here at ECU.
Some claim that SGA isn't listening to
the students. There is also the ques-
tion of why SGA officials receive free
Well, let's first look at this organi-
zation itself. Like the name implies,
SGA is for the students, not against
them. Toward the end of every spring
semester, students elect other stu-
dents to certain positions in SGA.
That's right. You helped make
these people President, Vice
I wouldn't be surprised if you did-
n't. Did you know that out of 17,500
students, only 2,182 voted last spring?
Wfere you one of the voting students?
Try to think back
That's the day when there were
several voting booths on campus.
What? You didn't see them. They
were clearly marked with purple tape
on the ground. There were even peo-
ple who tried to encourage students to
stop and vote. The only thing that you
needed was vour student ID and some
SGA listens if we speak up
idea of who you wanted to vote for.
It really makes you sit back and
wonder what the other 15,318 stu-
dents were doing that day.
I think we finally figured out the
problem with SGA It's not entirely all
SGA's fault. It's also the students. Yes,
it is SGAs job to make sure a student's
life is made easier. However, the igno-
rance of the students is what makes
the job a little tougher.
I understand that you are not going
to stop at those voting booths and
choose someone that you know noth-
ing about. This is where SGA and the
students need to pull together to
understand each other. Around elec-
tion time, all of the candidates run-
ning for offices in SGA need to make
themselves known. They need to
reach out to the students and present
their new ideas to them. On the other
hand, students need to actually make
an effort to listen to their ideas, so
that on voting day, you can make the
most appropriate decision.
Now, for the 15,318 students who
didn't vote, I have one question. Why?
These are the people who represent
our views, thev look out for us, and
they try to make sure that we are
happy. Of course, we do want strong,
honest people to watch over us.
Don't you want your vote to count
There is another problem that we
need to address concerning SGA: the
one in which students are saying that
SGA isn't listening.
Guess what? They can't listen if we
don't speak up. Some students seem
to think that just talking about a prob-
lem among themselves will make it
disappear. It won't. You need to stand
up for what you believe in and be pre-
pared to back it all the way.
SGA docs have an open door policy.
You can go in to SGA offices and voice
your problem. They will then see
what they can do to help.
Like all other types of government
in the USA, SGA is a democracy, not a
dictatorship. It is our responsibility as
students to make sure that the most
reliable people are put into these posi-
tions, which means that we have to go
out there and vote.
And yes, SGA does listen to the
student, we just have to speak up.

the unsettling and repulsing seem
intriguing and entertaining.
When I first discovered that his
play, Suburbia, was set to be performed
by ECU's very own theatre depart-
ment, I was thrilled and ready. I was
ready for a solid interpretation of one
of the loudest voices screaming in con-
tempo: .y theatre.
What 1 got was a worthwhile, yet
If anything, most critics would
complain that a local production of
such a highly esteemed play would
only weaken the production's full
potential. But such is not the case
here. ECU's theatre department fills
Bogosian's play with enough energy,
talent and drive to impress most any-
one. Ironically, the weakness of
Suburbia flows from the script itself.
I am a huge fan of Bogosian. and I
know what his talents are capable of
creating. 1 know that both the play
and film versions of Suburbia are
impressing the critical community,
but this play does not truly exemplify
the best Bogosian has to offer.
At the start of the campus perfor-
mance, director Don Biehn provides a
warning for the audience, informing
them that Bogosian's play is graphical-
ly honest and unsettling in an effort to
awaken the viewers ro the frustrations
and disillusionment of what has come
to be known as Generation . This
move on Biehn's part is appropriate
and appreciated, but it unfortunately
set up expectations in my mind that
weren't fully satisfied.
I am part of Generation X (admit-
tedly, I am of the older, grayer part of
it. but I still make the team). One of
the major criticisms of Generation X
revolves around the idea that we have
become desensitized to the horrors of
the world around us. and Bogosian's
plav mav very well prove that point. I
wanted and expected to be shocked
bv the world Bogosian carried me to in
Suburlna. but I wasn't. While I know
Bogosian to be a cutting-edge artist,
this plav didn't push my sensibilities
to their extremes. If anything,
Bogosian presents us with cliches.
The characters the audience is
introduced to include Jeff (played by
Brian Davis), an idealistic youth who
constantly complains but never takes
action to improve anything: Tim
(Anthony Marc Slade). a military
drop-out filled with racist hatred and
violence; Sooze (Allison Dennis), a
young woman who wants to escape
her troubled family life and her home-
town through art: Buff (Jamie Lane),a
hyperactive skate punk with nothing
on his mind but sex and drugs; Bee-
Bee (Wendv R. Gardner), a girl who
quickly loses her innocence and slow-
ly loses her sanity. Norman and

Considering the sheer number of films that Steve Buscemi has
appeared in (over 40 movies since his first role in 1486). his is a
familiar face to most moviegoers. Yet. mainstream movie star sta-
tus still passes him by.
Mind you. that's not a bad thing. Most of Buscemi's work
tends to be a bit off-kilter, something that Hollywood detests but
fans and critics love. He seems to have a penchant for choosing
strange, bizarre, yet compelling characters that are hard to ignore
(even if they're onlv on-screen for a minute or less).
This conscious direction he has taken in his career has allowed
him to appear in films and roles that most big name stars would
never be offered. That kind of constant, challenging work has
made Buscemi an actor who is respected by other actors and
directors, an env iable position in the cutthroat world of film.
Now that Buscemi is in this position of respect and power, he-
has decided to branch out and increase his already formidable
resume by adding writer and director credits to it. The nevv-to-
video Trees Lounge finds Buscemi both in front of and behind the
Written, directed by and starring Buscemi. Trees Lounge tells
the storv of Tommy Basilio, an out-of-work mechanic who spends
all of his free time (and that's alot) at a local low-key liar called,
you guessed it. Trees Lounge. Buscemi plavs lomnvy with typical
depth and quirkiness, you're never quite sure whether to root tor
him or tell him to get a life.
However, what's definite is that the life Tommy has isn't
peachy When he's not tanked on Wild Turkey, he spends his time
annoving his ex-boss and ex-best friend Rob. played by Anthony
LaPaglia. To make matters worse (worse is a key word in this
movie). Tommy's pregnant ex-girlfriend Theresa (Elizabeth
Bracco) is now living with Rob. And that's ust the beginning of
This plot mav sound like vet another depressing storv about
chronic drunks like Iremmi or Barfly. But Buscemi never falls
into the cliches that could make Tnrs Lomgr yet another any-
thing. Tnes Lomgr is instead a pleasantly refreshing character
piece that compels its viewers to keep watching, not to see how
'Tommv destroys himself, but what he docs with his possibilities.
Even when Tommv begins a dangerous flirtation with his
friend Jerry's (Daniel Baldwin) 17-year-old daughter. Debbie
(Chloe Sevignv). Buscemi doesn't take the road towards Ixilita-
ism. His script instead makes the relationship between Debbie
and Tommy compelling and genuine.
Intimate and charming as well as disturbing and provoking.
Thm Lomgr serves as a hallmark of independent filmmaking. If
Buscemi continues in this vein. I see nothing but success ahead
for him. Let's just hope he doesn't sell out.

Live At The Dock
Derek t. Halle
Who would have thought that such a
responsible band could address itself
so savagely? The Blue Dogs' sound is a
tell-all, bluegrass collage that colors its
image in grey and blue. Although the
image may not be on target for your
average commercial audience, the
sound proves to be amazing.
The Blue Dogs are Greg Walker
(drums and percussion), Phillip
Lammonds (electric and acoustic gui-
tars, mandolin and vocals), Bobby
Houck (acoustic guitar and vocals) and
ol" timer Hank Futch (acoustic bass
and vocals). The band originated in
Charleston, S.C. in 1990, eventually
making their way up through the club
scene there. Luckily for Charleston
and the Dock Street Theatre, the
band decided to pay homage to their
rtxns on this new album.
The record starts off with a tune
called "River Material There is not
much to say about the song's presence.
Its relationship to the singer is similar
to the other original songs by the Blue
I )ogs on the disc. They're small songs
with a big message.
The artistic choices the musicians
make have the ability to sway my opin-
ion for good or bad. For example, what
would you say if a musician asked you
to buy his album and it had nothing
but cover songs on it. Personally, I
would say hell no.
Although there are a few songs on
Ike. It The Dork Street Theatre that were
written by The Blue Dogs themselves,
the record's main area of concentration
points towards the work of others.
However, these songs are all done with
respect to their onginal artists. The
spirit of Jerry Garcia is remembered
here as the band shares an intelligent
evening jamming out for a leader once
known. Also included are covers of
everybody from the Counting Crows
("Rain King") to Lyle Lovett ("I've
Been to Memphis") to children's
author Shel Silverstein ("Marie
Laveau"), all with a bluegrass twist.
Probably one of the biggest compli-
ments I can give to bluegrass music is
that everyone can't play it. It's not as
much a universal language as it is an
entity unto itself. Composing music
like this takes time. How do you take a
song written in one format and pro-
duce it over again into a different one,
all the while keeping the original
essence of the song? That's where the
hard work comes in.
In the end, I enjoyed on IJte.lt The
Dork Street Theatre. I lit a candle,
grabbed a beer and had good conversa-
tion with the music. It's a record that
you don't talk about everywhere you
go. Vou just save it for yourself, for you,

House of Music
Like a party animal who had just a
little too much to drink the night
before. R&B is slowly staggering to
its feet at noon, pressing the ice pack
to its face, drinking strong black cof-
fee, trying to get over last night's
nightmare of West Coast rap and all
the illegitimate children it spawned.
.As the G-funk genre breathes its
final, dying sighs, the rest of R&B
puts tea-kettle whines and gun-tot-
ing hyperbole behind itself and
focuses once again on the things that
made R&B what it was at its best: a
little bit of rhythm, a little bit of
Back in the '70s, while the rest of
the music world was held under the
thrall of disco and acid rock, R&B
artists like Al Green, Curtis
Mayfield. Marvin Gave, and even
Michael Jackson and Prince were
transforming the lucrative '60s
Motown sound into something
tighter, smoother and sexier. George
Clinton and Sun Ra were inventing
funk, and ghetto DJs were inventing
the first rap.
By the mid '80s, this weilspringof
creativity and talent was drying up
and being forgotten. Corporate hit
writers took over and sent the genre
back to the days when artists were
nothing more than marketing tricks
designed to make money for label
Then came the '90s and gangsta,
g-funk copies of what had been
exciting and fresh 20 years prior.
Thankfully, West Coast is dying, or
changing, and the gap is being filled
by actual, honest to goodness talent.
One of the finer and more excit-
ing examples of this talent and cre-
ativity is House of Musu, the latest
album by Tony Toni Tone. From the
retro cover art to the bright orange
sweater Raphael Sadiq wore during
the photos shoot, it is obvious that
the group is longing for the golden
Possibly the most refreshing
aspect of House of Music is that Tony
Toni Tone is a band � not a rap
group or a vocal trio or a solo musi-
cian, but a band � one that plays
instruments and plays them well.
There is something about the
chemistry in the music of a live band
that gets lost in programmed,
sequenced, sampled songs. That
spark is present in the highest
ucgree on House of Musu in a way that
hasn't been seen in R&B since
Prince's band, the Revolution.
Despite the comparative spark
though, Tony Toni Tone is actually
smoother, tighter and snappier on
House of Musu than the Revolution

Stern exposes his Private Parts
COLLEGE PRESS SERVICE
Howard Stern yanks hard at the zip-
per on his pants. The self-pro-
claimed "King of All Media" has just
made use of the bathroom and
tucked his paltry private parts, or so
he says they are, back inside his blue
jeans! After washing his hands. Stern
strides back into a room full of jour-
nalists to promote Private Parts of
another kind - his autobiographical
film based on his No. 1 bestseller of
the same name.

what I do, so I wanted the film to
show how I got where I am today

he has no intention of giving up his
nationally syndicated radio show.

books and a hugely profitable pay-
per-view special under his belt. He
has a major movie coming out on

bassist Haden; the hip obviously have,
and regard him highly. The Montreal

ferent musicians each night; every

The Pbpm Gmde to Jm cm CD
begins its article about him, pro-
nouncing simply: "Haden is one of the
great bass players.
In January, Haden's Quartet Wsst
was nominated for a Grammy Award
in the best jazz instrumental perfcr-

At 19, he went from a small town in
the Midwest to Los Angeles to play
jazz. He was exhilarated when he
heard Omette Coleman improvising
free jazz with his plastic saxophone at
a Los Angeles club.
Haden met Coleman and went to
New York in his quartet at 20. At 31
he formed the Liberation Music
Orchestra to express solidarity with
world-wide struggles against political
repression. He has played duets with
many musicians and now, at 59, heads
the mare traditional Quartet Wsst.
"I'm always looking for a beautiful

with blues harmonica player James

Haden's first marriage ended in
divorce. After his former wife and son,
now 28, and triplet daughters, tw25,
moved from New Tfork to Los igeles,
he also moved, to be near his Idren.
He met Ruth Cameron, an actress,
in 1984. They married in 1989. She

ever was. Imagine, if you can, all of the
best elements of jazz, blues, gospel
afjd hip hop thrown together into a
tantalizing, satisfying stew.
The album begins with lead vocal-
ist and composer Raphael Sadiq
reminding us that it has been a few
years: "Hey - what's up? What you
been up to?"
� The opening notes of "Thinking of
You a bluesy, old-school guitar riff
lead right into a veritable 70s tribute
of a song, as if the band has not been
thinking of (as they sing) a girl, but
instead the days when men were men,
women were women, and musicians
played instruments. Guitarist
D'wayne Wiggins picks and strums
like a jazz maestro while Timothy
Rilcy lays down the drums and a fat
blues vibe on the organ. Rom there,
the album only gets better.
While the band does focus on a
more organic form of R&B, they're not
afraid to incorporate drum machines
and modern technology in the songs
to their advantage. "Top Notch a
chill jam about feelin' good, features a
slick beat backed to Wiggins' soulful
"Let's Get Down the band's
tongue-in-cheek sexy dance single
features a Babyface-esque acoustic
guitar backed by a dance beat and the
smooth rap provided by the sublimely
sarcastic DJ Quik. Sadiq's vocals on
the chorus are pure honey, and the
chorus is as catchy as they come.
Quik's take on pickin' up honeys at a
club is edged with satire as he declares
with confidence, "You know you mack
because I come stronger than the IRS
when you been caught delinquent on
"Lovin You" jumps back 20 years to
a '70s vocal-driven jam backed by a
jumpy piano, Latin percussion and a
steaming sax solo at the bridge, while
"Still a Man" redefines the slow jam,
with Sadiq giving up his best vocal
performance to date, crooning like Al
Green at his peak. "Annie May" is
another dancey, funk number, packed
with fat horn arrangements reminis-
cent ofthe best Michael Jackson, with
a humorous twist on transvestitcs:
�Annie May's got to make up her mind
- is it a girl or is it a guy?"
The album tones down with a set
of jazzy slow jams ("Let Me Know
"Tossin and Turnin "Wild Child")
and closes out with the sweet, bluesy
"Party Don't Cry a rather clever
inspirational twist on Prince's "1999
and a gospel-driven reprise of "Lovin'
Though it's been several years
since Tony Tbni Ton6 has had a pres-
ence in music, with the � -freshingly
stylish and smooth House of Musk, the
band has at least set R&B back on
solid footing and possibly ensured
their own success for quite a while.

Michelle Miller), a "well-to-do" Bel
Air native who manages Pony's career.
, Every cliche is based in some
truth, and I acknowledge that
Bogosian typically plays around more
with character types than fully fleshed
out humans, but the types here,
unfortunately, seem just too typical of
hbw mainstream America sees today's
. Furthering the problem is the fact
that so many other artists have dealt
with these same social issues.
Admittedly, Bogosian wrote his play in
1994, and it may have had more
impact a few years back. Still, Spike
lce addressed his concerns of socially
oppressed African-American youths in
tt� 1989 film, Do the Rtgtt TAing
Nirvana's creative pulse, Kurt Cobain,
sang about his generation's disillusion-
ment until he killed himself in 1994;
and as recently as 1995, Larry Clark's
controversial film, Kids, painted in
gritty detail a day-in-the-life of
America's troubled youth. In compari-
spn, Suburbia titillates more than
But these criticisms do not detract

from the fact that ECU's theatre
department is powered by serious tal-
ent that confidently and boldly makes
Suburbia worth seeing.
Biehn effectively cast his produc-
tion, an essential component of the
play because Suburbia is character-dri-
ven and requires a cast that can bal-
ance energy with somberness, enthu-
siasm with depression, comedy with
Every actor has his or her moment
to shine, but Eryc Whiteley and
Wendy R. Gardner particularly stand
out in two rather subdued, subtle per-
formances. As Pony, Whiteley fits per-
fectly into the role of a '90s rock star,
right down to his grunge look and pur-
poseful singing voice. Whiteley por-
trays Pony in such a quiet, contented
manner that it's hard to determine if
Pony has honestly reached a plateau of
happiness or if he simply believes
himself to better than the likes of Jeff
As Bee-Bee, Gardner carries the
same quiet stage personae, but hers is
one filled with grief and self-destruc-
tion. While her character stands in the
shadow of the dancing dramatics of
Sooze and the skate boarding antics of
Buff, Gardner manages to be a con-
stantly felt presence.
Other notable mentions include
the realistic set designed by technical
director Kelly Enloe; the music selec-
tions, which include the likes of

WHY PRODUCE AN R RATED PLAY?
SUBURBIA has already established itsef as a contemporary
classic, The New brk Times calling it "Chekhov high on speed and
twinkies Although the play can be ferocious and assaulting, it does
concern itself with a specific American themeidle hands are the
devil's workshop All of the characters are under twerty-five and most
are from upper-middle-class, upper class families. They live in an af-
fluent society, having grown up with too many toys, too much free
time, and little parental guidance. These young adults want to be unique
and they compete for their individuality, but the harder they try, the
more they fall into the generic mold of "rebels A character in the play
admits, "No one's really different, even if they think they're different.
They say 'Oh my God, look at my tattoo
The riveting aspects of this play to which we all can relate is
the electric energy and the destructive frustration. Alcohol and drug
abuse are constant factors in the play. "I grew up in the 60's says
director, Donald Biehn, "and the drug culture was new and experimen-
tal. Now it is the norm. In the 90's, our children have more pressure,
more temptation, and more affluence. This can be a deadly combina-
Biehn continues, "My children are teenagers now and, although
the language is harsh and much of the behavior is self-destructive, I
am not embarrassed to have them attend this play with me. Our chil-
dren need to know that we adults can understand how tough it is to be
young and reactive Biehn also recommends the play to parents:
"Inevitably our dialogue can break down with our teenagerswe end
up preaching to them, and eventually, they stop listening. Maybe if
parents and teens attend SUBURBIA together, a new and vital dia-
logue can develop
To end, Biehn is enthusiastic about this specific ECU version
of SUBURBIA. "This is an exceptional group of young actors. They
have the authority, the insight, and the training to portray these char-
acters with utter conviction and convincing empathy

this to be an important play to see,

controversial forms of entertainment
are few and far between. While I may

The East Carolinian
Men's season ends in double overtime loss
The men's basketball team was
searching for their first CAA title since
the '93 season this weekend in
Richmond but came up short in dou-
ble overtime. ,
The third-seeded Pirates had the
last game of the quarterfinal day on
Saturday against sixth-seeded James
Madison. In the regular season, JMU
had beaten the Pirates but by only the
slimmest of margins, 55-59 in
��Greenville and 60-63 in Harrisonburg.
The first half saw several lead
changes and ECU's largest lead of the
half was three points after a Raphael
Edwards three-pointer. jMU's
Eugene Atkinson, who would later
prove to be vital for the Dukes in the
finale of the game, scored eight
straight points in the last few minutes
of the half to give JMU their biggest
lead of the half by four points.
ECU swung the momentum back
their way when Garrett Blackwelder
nailed a three pointer with 1:21 left
and then Dink Peters made a layup
with 34.6 seconds left.
ECU held a one point advantage,
The leading scorer at the half for
the Pirates was Othello Meadows,
who compiled seven points which
included two three's. For the Dukes,
Atkinson was the main scorer with
ECU began the second half with a
scoring surge. Shots by Edwards,
Morris Grooms and then Edwards
again propelled the Pirates to a 32-25
lead. ECU controlled much of the
beginning of the second half and held
the lead until the 11:34 mark when
Ryan Culicerto sank two free throws
to tie the game. After that point, ECU
would only hold the lead one more
time after an Edwards jumper. From
there the momentum swung toward
With 3:05 left, the Dukes were
clinging to a five point lead, 49-54 but
the Pirates weren't ready to give up.
With 2:03 left the Pirates were down
by two, 52-54. As time was winding
down, Grooms made a layup with 17.6
seconds left to send the game into the
Edwards proved to be a key player
in the first overtime as he was the only
ECU player to put points on the
board, with a jumper, layup and two
free throws. With 26.3 seconds left,
and a 60-59 edge, Peters had a chance
to give the Pirates a three point lead,
but two missed free throws and then a
Grooms foul � his fifth, with 4.6 sec-
onds left � let JMU back in. The
Dukes had a chance to go up by two
points when Atkinson went to the foul
line, but he only made one of two and
now the game headed into a second
The second overtime was unsuc-
cessful for the Pirates, who never held
the lead. Atkinson started off the dou-
ble OT with a trey and then Edwards
committed his fourth foul and sent to
the line Charles Lott, who drained
two free throws. Peters laid in a shot
and then Edwards hit two free throws
with 2:23 left to cut the Dukes' lead
to one, 64-65.
ECU was down by three when
Meadows swished an off balanced
three point shot with 23.4 seconds
left to tic the game at 67 apiece. It
looked like the game was going into a
third overtime when, with 7.9 seconds
left, JMU inbounded the ball and
then Atkinson got the tip in with 1.7
seconds left, to end the game with a
67-69 Dukes' victory.
"The ball was on the rim and we all
had a chance at it Head Coach Joe
Dooley said. "Bounces here, bounces
there, unfortunately they got it
Edwards, who was named to the
Second Team All-CAA, led the way
with 19 points, followed by Peters
with 14, Grooms with 13 and
Meadows with 12. Atkinson led the
way for JMU with 25 points, including
the last second tip in.
ECU ends the season 17-10 and 9-
8 in the CAA while the Dukes headed
on to the championship game last
night with Old Dominion. At press
time results were nor, available from
Dooley had nothing but praise for
his team after the game.
"You just saw a bunch of kids lay
everything on the line Dooley said.
"You can't ask for more. This group is
the best group in the country to
coach. I am very, very proud of the
Edwards, who had been shut out in
the first half and then came back to
lead ECU in scoring, said this was
tough because the team is like one

Slaney gunning for world record at World Indoor
ATLANTA (AP) - Buoyed by her sensational showing at the U.S. Indoor
Championships and urged on her 10-year-old daughter, Mary Slaney will chase
the world record in the 1,500 meters next weekend.
I could run under four minutes Slaney said Saturday, after reeling off a
scintillating time of 4 minutes, 3.08 seconds, the fastest in the world since 1990,
when Romania's Doina Melinte set the world record of 4:00.27.
There is a good chance the world record is in jeopardy
Slaney was uncertain about competing in the three-day World Indoor
Championships at Paris starting Friday, but her daughter, Ashley, helped her
"1 tend to feel guilty about (leaving) Ashley Slaney said, "but she said
Mom, go on and do it

That got her thinking about the world indoors.
Hunt transfers majority ownership of
KC Chiefs to children
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Kansas City Chiefs owner Lamar Hunt has trans-
ferred 80 percent ownership of the team to his four children, to keep it in fam-
ily hands and avoid huge estate taxes, The Kansas City Star reported Sunday
Hunt, 64, who is in good health and participates in many day-to-day deci-
sions involving the team, will remain as owner. He and his wife, Norma, retain
20 percent of the team.
Hunt has divided the rest of the team equally among his daughter and three
sons, the newspaper said. i.ii
"It is the smart thing to do said Hunt, who founded the Amencan hootball
League and has been one of the more respected owners of the NFL since the
merger of the two leagues. .
"I didn't want to have a situation where this large an asset would be hanging
,over my estate , ,
The Chiefs are valued at about $188 million, according to Financial Wwld
magazine. Estate taxes would have been $103.4 million.
But Hunt seemed to want even more to keep the team in the family. He had
founded the team in 1959 as the Dallas Texans and moved it to Kansas City in
Camacho stops Sugar Ray Leonard in five rounds
ATLANTIC CITY, N J. (AP) - Sugar Ray Leonard came back to the ring the
"same way he left it six years ago - a battered loser.
Hector Camacho knocked Leonard down in the fifth round and then
stopped him with a barrage of 11 punches early Sunday morning at the
Leonard, a 40-year-old grandfather, went down about 50 seconds into the
fifth round when Camacho landed a right and three left uppercuts to the head.
Leonard tried to get up at the count of 3 but then went down and struggled
Camacho then leaped to the attack and landed 10 punches to the head
�before referee Joe Cortez jumped in to save Leonard from further punishment
1:08 of the round.
The crushing defeat certainly will send Leonard into retirement for good.
He had said he was coming back now because he w� running out of time to
nuke a return to the ring.
- "My career is definitely over said Leonard, who was elected to the
International Boxing Hall of Fame in January. He will be inducted in June.
With the victory, the 34-year-old Camacho retained the fringe IBC mid-
" Before the fight, Camacho said, "It's the first time I'll be fighting a scientif-
ic fighter, but he's fighting the Macho Man. I'm not Ray-struck
Camacho, 158 34, pressed the action from the opening bell. But Leonard,
159, appeared to have the best of it the first two rounds when he landed some
solid rights to the head and some nice punches to the body as Camacho was
short with most of his punches.
NFL drug rule may end for Green Bay star
MILWAUKEE (AP) - Green Bay Packers quarterback Brett Favre may be free of
restrictions imposed by the NFL last year against drinking, the Milwaukee
.Journal Sentinel said in Sunday's editions.
Favre spent several weeks in treatment for dependency on pain-killing med-
Seine. He was forbidden by the league from drinking and was required to under-
go about 10 drug tests a month.
During an interview Saturday, Favre was unspecific about his status in the
substance-abuse treatment program but indicated he was free of the alcohol
ban, the newspaper said.
He was quoted as saying: "I finally heard from them yesterday and I tried to
call them back and couldn't get in touch with them referring to NFL officials.
"But it's going to work out in my favor. W1I have to give a little bit, what-
ever that may be. All I know is, from the start I was treated unfairly but it's going
to work out
Favre had said in 19 that the treatment program ordered by the league was
more than necessary. He appealed to commissioner Paul Tagliabue.
After six weeks in a clinic in Topeka, Kan Favre returned to the team for
autumn workouts, leading the Packers to the NFL championship and getting
the league's most-valuable player citation for a second consecutive year.
Favre' agent, James "Bus" Cook, said Saturday night he was unaware of a
, commissioner's decision.
"Who would've thunk it?" That was
the battle cry for Anne Donovan's
sixth-seeded Lady Pirates during the
Kellogg's CAA Women's Basketball
The Lady Pirates were expected
by many to fall in the first round to the
number two seeded Lady Spiders of
Richmond, despite a strong finish in
the later stages of the season.
Donovan's Bucs blistered the nets to
shut up the richmond faithful, shoot-
ing a season high 56.9 percent for the
ballgame. It continued to be a night of
season highs with senior forward
Tracey Kelley nailed down her 13th
double-double with 10 points to go
aiong with her 10 boards, as well as a
season high 14 points for senior Laurie
"The girls played a complete
game; we shot the ball well and we
distributed the scoring as well
The sharing of the wealth was
assisted by a season high nine assists
from senior standout Justine Allpress.
"We played together tonight and I
just dished the ball to the open shot
It didn't stop there for Allpress as
she led the team in scoring with 15
points to go along with her nine
The Lady Bucs had their troubles
down the stretch with Richmond's
pressure defense, as the Lady Spiders
held ECU on their side of the floor for
most of the final 1:30 of the ballgame.
Junior Jen Cox recieved three fouls
with only one second ricking off the
clock to foul out of the ballgame. The
Lady Spiders looked to cut it to two,
but the Lady Pirates canned their free
throws when it counted and they
went on to win 76-66.
After a day of upsets in the brack-
et, the luck of the draw paired number
six ECU with number seven VCU.
The Bucs came into the game 2-0
against the Lady Rams on the season,
looking to get into the finals to face
nationally ranked Old Dominion.
Most younger teams, like the Lady
Pirates have trouble looking ahead,
but that wasn't the case. Freshman
guard Misty Home lit up the score-
board by nailing three three pointers
for the sixth time this season.
"Misty really hit her shot when it
counted, and that really helped us pull
away Donovan said.
Home wasn't the only one that was
on fire. Sophomore Beth Jaynes came
off the bench for seven points and six
"All of the younger players showed
a lot of poise down the stretch, and
that made a huge difference

Seniors make All-Tournament team
Two seniors from the Lady Pirate bas-
ketball team ended their careers with
top tournament honors on Sunday in
the CAA women's title game.
Justine Allpress and Tracey Kelley
were named to the All-Tournament
team after the loss and Head Coach
Anne Donovan said these girls
deserved the recognition for the out-
standing performances all season.
"Justine has consistently done
well all year offensively and Tracey all
year has rebounded rhe ball and so
both of them were nicely rewarded
Donovan said. "1 know they feel good
about that as a team and we feel real
good about that as well
Allpress was also named to the
Second Team All-CAA and the CAA
All-Academic team. She is the 18th
player in ECU history to earn All-CAA
honors and Ail-Academic team selec-
tion, which she also received her
sophomore year. In the final game
against ODU she compiled nine
points and three rebounds. In the
previous two wins, Allpress scored 15
against Richmond and 23 against
For Allpress being named to the
All-Tournament team shows that her
dedication paid off.
"It really does feel good to get an
award like that Allpress said. "It just
shows that the hard work is worth it.
You may not
come out with a
arc people out
ing our team is
which is really
great, to have
two people from
our team named
to the All-tour-
Kelley has been the leading
rebounder in 14 games this season,
including grabbing 10 against
Richmond to go along with 10 points
for her 13th double-double and six
rebounds against VCU. In the ODU
game, she pulled down four rebounds.
Kelley said she
was surprised at
"It surprised me,
but every time I
step on the floor,
I play with every-
thing I have
Kelley said. "I
might be out-
sized, the athlet-
ic ability may be
better on my
opponent, but I play with my heart.
That's what got me here and has got-
ten me through four years of college
ball and it paid off. I was proud and I
was surprised to be put in the caliber

Baseball team wins one, loses two over weekend
ECU's baseball team won one game and lost two
to the University of Virginia this weekend. After
winning the first game, the Pirates had difficulty
keeping up with the Cavaliers in the seco: i and
The first game on Saturday was a decisive 13-
10 victory marked by fiery offense by both teams.
The Pirates were a little shaken after the top of
the first inning. The Cavaliers' lead off hitter hit a
home run to center off of the second pitch. An
error allowed a single and the next batter Matted
a triple to the wall that scored him. The next bat-
ter hit a fly to shallow center that scored another
In the bottom of the inning, the Pirates
attacked the Cavalier infield with a vengeance.
Aggressive base running left center fielder Kevin
Monroe and left fielder Steve Salargo at third base
and first base, respectively, when first baseman
Randy Rigsby came up to the plate. Rigsby sent
the ball sailing over the center field wall, drove
Monroe and Salargo in, and tied the score.
Catcher Tim Flaherty got on base, thanks to a
ground rule double and a home run by shortstop
Ryan Massimo, made the score 5-3.
The Pirates allowed no runs to score in the sec-
ond inning, thanks to some great catches by
ECU's defense. Monroe and Salargo again were on
base when Rigsby hit a home run which gave the
Pirates a five run lead.
"It was a good home run day Rigsby said.
"The wind was really blowing out
In the fourth inning, the Cavaliers hit another
home run with nobody on. ECU answered this
with four runs of their own. Monroe and Rigsby
were on base when third baseman Chris Shaffer
hit a home run. The next batter, Flaherty, hit a
home run that made the score ECU 12, UVA 4.

Championship game ends in loss for softball players
The weekend was action-packed for the ECU
Softball team as they hosted the Hampton
InnRagazzi's Lady Pirate Classic.
Due to inclement weather on Friday, the
weekend's action was kicked off on Saturday
morning with a conference battle against UM-
Baltimore County. ECU brought in four runs in
the fifth to win the game 4-2. In game two, the
Lady Pirates posted three runs in the first
inning and added two more in the fifth to
sweep a 5-4 victory.
The girls met on the field with Eastern
Michigan for games three and four on Saturday
afternoon. The Eagles handed a 4-0 loss to the
Pirates in the third game. The highlight of the
day and perhaps the entire weekend came in
game four when ECU's Isonette Polonius hit a
two-run homer in the bottom of the second.
Polonius's run was one of five to be brought in
the first two innings. Freshman Denise Reagan
allowed the Eagles only two runs on four hits to
up her record 2-3 for the season so far, and give
the Pirates a 5-2 win.
Polonius's homer was her second of the sea-
son. The key to her success came from follow-
ing the words of wisdom of Head Coach Tracey
"Coach Kee told me to be patient and wait
for the pitch I liked best Polonius said.
Sunday's championship game got off to a
slow start. At the top of the sixth, the Pirates
trailed Canisius 0-1. Canisius' Anne Marie
Bauer stepped up to bat with a single and was
brought home when teammate Joy Judski
reached on an error. Ellie Hanover singled min-
utes later to bring Judski back to the mound
with a run. Canisius won the game with a final
score of 0-4.
Although the loss was a disappointing one
for the Lady Pirates, the team feels that over-
all, valuable things were obtained from the
"Every game has a winner and a loser
Polonius said. "W: can us the loss to learn from
our mistakes and make sure that we don't make
the same errors again.

Netters come up short in weekend match
This past Saturday, Mar. 1, the ECU
men's tennis team hosted their first
home matches of the season. The
Pirates were scheduled to play
Barton College at 9 a.m but the
match was canceled due to bad
weather. The Pirates did, however,
play their 2:30 p.m. match against
Winthrop. Unfortunately the Pirates
lost a close one, 4-3, that came down
to the last individual match.
The Pirates were tied with
Winthrop 3-3, which left the decid-
ing match to the Pirates' number
one ranked player, Roope Kalajo.
Kalajo lost the match, but gave it all
he had losing in the tiebreaker set.
After coming back, from down
match point, Kalajo lost 8-6 in the
Despite the loss, the Pirates
received strong play and an individ-
ual win from Nils Alomar at the
number four spot. Brett Rowley at
the number five position also played
well, winning his individual match.
The Pirates had the early advan-
tage taking a 1-0 lead after the dou-
bles matches (the team that wins
two out of three doubles matches
receives a point towards the overall
score). They did so by winning the
overall doubles, winning two and los-
ing one. But Winthrop made the
Pirates earn the deciding point.
After the number two ranked
team won, and number one lost,
Rowley and Derek Slate were the
Pirates that had the fortune of
deciding the doubles outcome. The
two were down match point, when
coach Moore pulled the two aside.
"Brett and I got off to a slow

that's how the game and season
ended, but Dooley put the season in
perspective after the game.

At one point in the season, the
Ladies were fighting to stay out of
the play-in game and now they
would be playing for the right to rep-
resent the CAA in the NCAA tour-
It was no secret that the Lady
Bucs would have to play a perfect
game to beat the nation's number
two team, but the team that CAA
fans fell in love with wouldn't let
that get to them.
The Lady Monarchs came into
the game with a 44 game winning
streak in CAA competition. The
slate and white was led by a roster
littered with All CAA selections
Nyree Roberts, Clariesse
Machanguana, and CAA player of
the year.Ticha Penicheiro.
The Lady Pirates came out
aggressively coming from behind to
tie the ballgame at 12 at one point of
the first half, but after a time-out by
coach Wendy Larry, the Lady
Monarchs jumped out to a 20 point
half time lead.
The combo of Roberts and
Machanguana wore down the Lady
Pirates' post players, while Penichiro
and Mery Andradc sewed down the
