Orientation winds down for incoming students
University staff successfully
welcomes class of 2001

As this school year's "Discover ECU" Orientation sessions
come to a close, campus will quiet again to its normal sum-
mer school pace as the members of the Class of 2001 await
their return to campus for a more permanent stay.
The staff at Orientation and the First Year Experience
poured hours of work into each of the past six rwo-and-
one-half day sessions to ensure that both parents and stu-
dents left with an accurate portrayal of the programs and
services available at ECU.
Beth Anne Pretty, director of Orientation and First Year
Experience said it was important that Orientation stu-
dents keep in mind that all of the planned sessions had a
specific purpose in mind. These sessions included an
introduction to ECU's academic regulations, taking place-
ment tests, or watching skits depicting the potential prob-
lems of college life.
"We feel that all of the sessions are important, and that
they should attend all of them, because they're all there
for a reason Pretty said.
In addition to attending all the sessions. Pretty said, it
is also important each year for students to come ready to
actively participate.
"The most important and useful thing the students
could do was to ask questions Pretty said.
Orientation students were encouraged to take advan-
tage of the people resources offered them during their
stay. Probably the most indispensable resource available
during Orientation is the voice of experience.
The Orientation Assistants are upperclassmen who
have been trained to help freshmen make their transition
into college life as smooth as possible, and are there to
help. If there is no Orientation .Assistant immediately
available, there are usually other currently attending stu-
dents who are willing to answer questions.
"We've usually had comments that most people are
pretty nice around here said former Orientation
Assistant John Reeves.
While all sessions are important, there were a few in
particular that couid make the difference between a good
start to a successful academic career or a dissatisfying
freshman year, such as the session which introduces stu-
dents to their prospective majors.

Arthritis affects
more than elderly
A. BRANDON MlSE
HF.A1.TH AND WEI.I.NESS ISSI'ES
STAFF WRITER
When most people think of arthritis, they
identify it as a disease of the elderly.
However, according to the Arthritis
Foundation, arthritis is found in all age
groups, including almost 250,000 children.
And it affects about 40 million Americans.
That equals to about one in everv seven peo-
pie.
Women have a greater chance of getting
arthritis than men. about 66 percent of arthri-
tis patients are women, and in some forms of
arthritis, the percentages are as high as 80-90
percent.
Arthritis is not a disease in itself, but is
actually a symptom of over 100 different
types of diseases associated with pain and
debilitation of the joints and ligaments in the
body . It can make bones brittle, weaken the
spine, cause internal organ damage, and even
shorten life expectancy.
For many people arthritis limits the
amount of jobs available to them.
"There will be many jobs that you can still
handle easily, others that can be handled with
some modifications and a few that you may
have to eliminate as possibilities said Dr.
Doyt Conn, senior vice president for medical
affairs at the Arthritis Foundation.
Many cases of arthritis are self diagnosed
and often not treated properly, if treated at
all. This is usually due to misconceptions
about arthritis, or because the patient simply
cannot afford proper care, according to Conn.
"Writing off your joint pain as just arthri-
tis puts you at risk in a number of ways
Conn said. "You may end up enduring more
pain and function loss than necessary.
"Many of the types of arthritis reveal
themselves slowly, and only alerting your doc-
tor to new or changed symptoms will give
your doctor enough pieces to put the puzzle
together
Conn said doctors have access to broad
ranges of treatment for the many forms of
arthritis, and not seeing a doctor could result
in debilitation, damage to joints and muscles,
and in some remote instances, death.
There are various forms of therapy for the
many types of arthritis, ftin relief is a prima-
ry goal in arthritic treatment. Medicines,
physical therapy, and hotcold applications are
all methods of relieving or lessening arthritic
pain.
Through proper dieting, medication,
physical training and joint protection, arthrit-
ic patients can enjoy a normal life.
Acupuncture has been found to alleviate pain
as well.
"Interest in acupuncture is growing
among people with arthritis said Cindy T
McDaniel, editor of Arthritis Today, a publi-
cation of the Arthritis Foundation.
"Several reliable studies indicate its effec-
tiveness, and it may be recommended by
medical professionals to supplement or com-
plement conventional medical treatment
As debilitating as arthritis can be, it might
prevent some patients from wanting to take
the extra time it takes to prepare special

A CLASSIC SWING
Proposal seeks to
control art funding

Country Club.

This is the first in a series ofart'ules on this topic.
The next sill focus on how the plan affects ECU
speiifually.
RALEIGH (AP)-County commissioners and
city councils could control how local arts
groups spend state grant money under a pro-
posal tucked away in the state
House budget.
The Republican-led House
wants to give local official the
right to block anv art exhibi-
tion or performance they find
objectionable-as long as it is a
least partly funded with a state
grant and presented in a pub-
liclv funded building. Any arts
group seeking a state grant
woId have to agree in writing
to abide by local officials' deci-
sions before receiving any
money.
The three-sentence provi-
sion was put into the 343-page
budget by Rep. Sam Ellis, R-Wake.
"It's simple: If you're going to take our
money, you subject yourself to our opinion
Ellis said. "And 'our' is what I believe to be
the opinion of the majority of the popula-
tion
"Nobody knows what art is, nobody can
define it Ellis said. "But they can define
what meets a community's standards
The N.C. Arts Council, part of the state
Department of Cultural Resources, is
responsible for distributing state grants for
the arts. The council distributed about $4.5
million this year, some of it going to local arts
councils, which in turn distribute the state
money to local artists.
Under Ellis' proposal, state arts grants
could not be used for performances or other
art works if local officials object, in a resolu-
tion, to the display or performance.
A similar provision is in the current state
budge, but it expires when the fiscal year
ends June 30. The House proposes writing
the measure permanently into state law.
The move come amid debates in at least
two major North Carolina cities over arts
"It's simple: If you re
going to take our money,
you subject yourself to our
opinion. And 'our' is
what I believe to be the
opinion of the majority of
the population

funding and community standards.
Mecklenburg commissioners eliminated
most county funding for arts groups in a dis-
pute over works with homosexual themes.
In Guilford County, the play "La Cage
Aux Folles" sparked similar controversy
because its tow main characters are homo-
sexual.
Guilford commissioners cut
the $30,000 in county money
going to the United Arts
Council of Greensboro, one
of the groups supporting the
theatre that staged the play.
The commissioners also cut
F$15,000 going to the High
FViint Arts Council.
Those controversies, Ellis
said, show a growing aware-
ness among local elected offi-
cials of their role in setting
community standards.
Rep. Alma Adams, D-
Guilford, attacked Ellis' pro-
posal June 17. saving the Legislature should
stay out of the arts debate. The provision
would gibe local governments "unprecedent-
ed power" and probably would violate the
First Amendment, she said.
"Freedom of expression is being
attacked said Adams, and art professor at
Bennett College.
Ellis dismisses concerns that his proposal
could stifle freedom of expression.
"There's no First Amendment right to a
contract, and this is a contract he said. "You
need $2,000 to perform a work of art. .As a
term of the contract, to accept this state
funding, you should agree to subject yourself
to the community standards
But Mecklenburg County commissioner
Hoyle Martin, who led Charlotte's charge
against homosexual-themed arts, agreed with
Ellis that local elected officials may be the
best judges of which arts projects are appro-
priate for the community.
"I don't believe I'm supposed to come to
this elected office and leave my moral con-
victions in mv dresser drawer Martin said.
Hong Kong, China rejoin for uncertain future
HONG KONG (AP) - Torn between excitement and anxiety.
Hong Kong shed its 156-year-old colonial mantle today and
rejoined China, its original mastet and now the pilot of its
course to the future.
"I have relinquished the administration of this government.
God save the Queen said a cable from Gov. Chris Patten to
London sent at midnight as sovereignty changed.
With a simple ceremony, the playing of both countries'
national anthems and a switch of flags. Hong Kong was passed
from the dwindling British Empire to the world's most popu-
lous nation. The Chinese flag and Hong Kong's new flag fin-
ished their ascent up the flagpole eight seconds after midnight.
In a moment, the territory's 6.3 million people ceased to be
British subjects and became citizens of a new entity called the
Special Administrative Region of Hong Kong.
"China will, tonight, take responsibility for a place and a
people which matter greatly to us all Prince Charles said in a
speech shortly before the I'nion Jack came down before a glob-
al array of YIPs gathered in a hall overlooking Hong Kong har-
bor.
"We shall not forget you. and we shall watch with the clos-
est interest as you embark on this new era of your remarkable
history
Chinese President Jiang Zemin called the handover "a vic-
tory for the universal cause of peace and justice He said, "July
1, 1997, will go down in the annals of history as a day that mer-
its eternal memory - the return of Hong Kong to the mother-
land
As "God Save the Queen" played, Charles, heir to the British
throne, watched with a dejected expression and a far-off look in
his eye as the Union Jack descended.
Patten was less circumspect: He looked downright sullen
and spent just seconds in a post-ceremony handshake gathering
before turning on his heel and walking off.
On the Chinese side, only Premier Li Peng smiled slightly
during the ceremony.
Shortly afterward, Charles, Patten and his family, and others
in the British delegation boarded the royal yacht Britannia in
Hong Kong harbor and sailed away. Chinese and British well-
wishers reached out across a police barrier to hug Patten.
The crowd roared, "Hip, hip, hurray
The brief handover observances at Hong Kong's new con-
vention center followed a day of parades, speeches, perfor-
mances and banquets, followed by a night skv bursting with
British fireworks over Victoria Harbor. Rain-drenched specta-
tors joined bagpipers in a spirited, emotional rendition ot "Auld
Lang Syne
Right on schedule, more than 500 Chinese troops rolled into
Hong Kong in convoys precisely at 9 p.n. in preparation for the
midnight handover.
In Hong Kong the mood was of joy. adness, and apprehen-
sion. Beyond the pageantry, for most residents the historic
event boiled down to one question: Will Communist China
keep its promise to preserve Hong Kong's freedoms and its cap-
italist economy?
"Thirteen years ago we thought it was very far away. Now it's
suddenly here said Elsie Li, a clerk, referring to the 1984
agreement that Britain would hand back the colony today. "I
still can't believe it's true
Several pro-democracy anti-China demonstrations were
held in Hong Kong, and most remained small and peaceful. Just
before the handover ceremony at the convention center, how-
ever, members of the April 5 Action Group, a coalition of
Chinese activists, briefly blocked the road. Police holding hands
surrounded them and moved them into an approved protest
area.
The group shouted as it rolled in a papier-mache tank, con-

luwessive noise and uninvited guests
c&iised lasting changes in the social
dr$gramming for incoming freshmen
Swing the first orientation session.
, During a performance by the musi-
$igroup Duality, at Scott Hall, resi-
dents of 14th Street called the
Greenville Police complaining of
excessive noise.
I When police arrived, the rock band
had completed their performance and
the next phase of entertainment, a
Qnity Step performed by active mem-
bers of the National Pan Hellenic
Qouncil (NPHC), had begun.
Greenville Police ordered the
crowd to disperse and the remainder
cj the Unity Step was cancelled. That
�rtion of the Orientation program
was also cancelled for the remainder
of this summer's Orientation sessions.
Dean of Students Ronald Speicr
pointed out that non-orientation stu-
dents attended the program and that
the programming was not set up for
just the minority students but was
intended for all orientation students.
That part (the NPHC presenta-
tion) was also changed because we
could not control access to the pro-
gram Speier said.
However NPHC and Phi Beta
Sigma fraternity President Christia
Rey disagreed.
"Whether or not access to the pro-
gram could have been controlled is
not a major issue Rey said. "ECU is
a public facility, and crowds should
have been expected
Rey said the whole ordeal was an
unfortunate and preventable mistake.
"Those problems could have easily
been corrected without canceling the
entire presentation Rey added.
"This whole ordeal was the result of
poor planning. Still, our main concern
right now is that these minority fresh-
men are missing out on an important,
cultural aspect of Greek life.
According to Rey the show was
important to minority students.
The concept of a Unity Step was
good for a number of reasons Rey
said. "We wanted to show the fresh-
men the social side to black Greek
organizations and at the same time
put an end to the misconception that
we are all petty and in a constant state
of rivalry with each other
According to Dean of Students
Ronald Speier, had everything gone as
it was originally planned there would
have been no complications to the
program.
"There were some changes made
to the program of which we were not
aware Speier said. "I was under the
impression that the entire presenta-
tion would be a 'unity step' and no
group would perform alone
Rey said though NPHC was given
no set guidelines, the groups worked
together and composed a theme in
which the groups would step individ-
ually and then come together to step
in unison.
Speier said he assumed that some-
time later it was decided that each
group would have time to step indi-
vidually before they would eventually
come together. It was during the indi-
vidual phase that one of the groups
Omega PsLPhi Fraternity made ges-
tures that Speier described as �"inap-
propriate
Speier said since the NPHC pre-
sentation has been excluded and
other changes have been made such
as controlling the volume of the
music, the gatherings at Scott Hall
have been more orderly.
"All of the students still have a
chance to get together and enjoy
drinks, food and raffles just like
before Speicr said.
"We feel that these events have
left minority students without a social
outlet because, quite frankly, the
band Duality does not address the
need of our culture
"Everyone knows that any Greek
step show is geared toward minority
srudents Rey said. "Though it was
performed in front of everyone, it is
obvious that minority students will be
more familiar with it and better able
to appreciate it
Minority students do have the
opportunity to learn more about the
service orientation of Greeks and
other types of organizations in a forum
setting in which campus leaders are
given time to discuss the purpose of
their individual groups. There is also a
program that allows minorities a ques-
tion and answer opportunity with Dr.
Brian Hayncs, director of Minority
Student Affairs.
The placement tests in foreign
languages, chemistry, mathematics
and English let students know if
they need to take any remedial
courses, or if they are eligible to
place out of the first level of some
classes.
Another extremely important
session is the one at which ID's are
made. An ID is a must-have for any
college student. With it, students
are eligible to participate in campus
activities and take advantage of
resources like the campus computer
labs or the Student Recreation
Center.
"One of the new features of
Orientation this year that we were
all excited about was the chance to
offer sessions in the new Rec
Center Pretty said.
Orientation students got an
introduction to the Rec Center on
the first night of orientation, when
from 9-11 p.m. they were given the
opportunity to tour the new facility,
participate in demo aerobics classes,
see a martial arts demonstration,
learn cheers from the ECU cheer-
leaders and enjoy free food.
Pretty added that overall if
Orientation students keep in mind
that this experience was there for
them to receive valuable knowledge
about their new school and to enjoy,
then it was worth the months of
planning and effort.
From July 16-22, campus and the
Orientation staff will accommodate
two groups of transfer students who,
like the freshman class, must learn
to navigate at ECU.

demning Chinese officials for crush-
ing pro-democracy protests in
Beijing's Tiananmen Square in 1989
and killing hundreds.
Jiang, the first Communist
Chinese president to visit Hong
Kong, arrived only a few hours before
the day's festivities began. Before
leaving Beijing, Jiang renewed
pledges to preserve Hong Kong's
freedoms.
As Jiang flew into the airport, an
exhausted-looking Patten moved
out of Government House, taking
with him the British flag that used
to fly over the official residence.
He bit his lip and swallowed hard
as the band played "God Save the
Queen
Later, at Britain's open-air sunset
farewell ceremony, Patten paid emo-
tional tribute to the colony he gov-
erned for five years. "I have no
doubt that with people here holding
onto these values which they cher-
ish, Hong Kong's star will continue
to climb he said.
China swiftly asserted its sover-
eignty with the advance contingent
of 509 troops moving across the bor-
der from the city of Shenzhen. Early
Tuesday, 4,000 People's Liberation
Army troops were to arrive in Hong
Kong by ships, helicopters and
armored vehicles.
Britain and the United States
questioned whether such a show of
force, especially armored vehicles,
was necessary.
With dozens of top foreign offi-
cials in Hong Kong for the handover,
there was a flurry of diplomatic
activity, including talks between
U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine
Albright and British Foreign
Secretary Robin Cook.
Albright expressed hopes for a
post-handover Hong Kong "that is
free, a Hong Kong in which personal
freedoms exist and will not be
squeezed out
China regards the return of its
territory as a glorious event, and
Beijing was putting on massive cele-
brations. Chinese streamed by the
tens of thousands to Beijing's
Tiananmen Square to view the clock
counting the seconds past midnight.

Friday wc celebrate our independence. We'll eat hot dogs, drink beer, go to the beach and
watch fireworks. Maybe we'll hang the flag out front, or maybe we'll just be happy to
have the day off work. But how many of us will think about what the future holds for our
country?
Another celebration took place earlier this week far from the United States. On
Monday, Hong Kong celebrated its return to China from Britain. It too celebrated with
fireworks and exuberant parties. Hong Kong was once again a part of China after 156
years. But now as this historic date has passed, questions are abundant concerning the
future of Hong Kong. Will China keep its promise of "one country, two systems?" Who
will have the greater influence on the other as a result of the reunion: China or Hong
Kong?
"One country, two systems will undoubtedly be difficult. China seems to have
already taken a step in the wrong direction by disbanding Hong Kong's pro-democracy
legislature elected in 1995 and replacing it with a Chinese-appointed legislature. The
new legislature met immediately after being sworn in Monday. It passed numerous new
measures, including rules governing political protest. Under the new rules, all groups
must register with the government. Protesters must get police permission to hold rallies
and burning the Chinese or local Hong Kong flag is punishable by imprisonment and a
hefty fine. To their credit, Chinese officials did allow democracy activists to stage
protests during Monday's celebration.
Both Hong Kong and China will feel the effects of the reunion. It is quite possible that
Hong Kong's democratic leanings will have a positive effect on China. However, it is also
very likely that it will only produce in Chinese citizens a higher desire to make money,
not result in democracy or liberal thinking in China. If the result is purely greed, devas-
tation is indeed possible. According to a recent article in Fortune magazine, there are
slum dwellers in Shanghai who do not having running water, yet they have cell phones.
When they see the way prosperous Hong Kong residents live, what are they supposed to
think?
When we wake up Saturday morning, our biggest problem may be the pain in our head
or the hot dog stains on our shirts. But for Hong Kong and China the future is much more
complicated. ;

Children learn to hate during ugly divorces
What is this country coming to?
While sitting in a fast food restau-

help over hear the conversation a
father was having with his grade-
school-age daughter.
"Daddy, it's not Mommy's fault
said the little girl. "Yes it is said

Mom wants to go back to high
school, she should have never

The child looked so
sad. She obviously did
not want to hear her
father say negative
things to her about her
very own mother.
It was obvious to
me that a separation and likely a
divorce was the scenerio.
Several years ago, I met a young
man who absolutely hated his father.
He outright told me that his father
was nothing but a no-good drunken
bum. I queried him, wondering how
he knew this. His reply to me was
that his mother had told him all
about his rotten father, and that he
had not laid eyes on his dad since he
was 5 years old. He spoke of how
the father just left and how he was
too sorry to pay child support. Then
the young man lit up and spoke
proudly of how he now helps his
mother � something his old man
would not do.
Obviously, this young man only
knew one side of the story. I
explained to him a little of another

How she grieved over not being able

would cry at night for her children.
How the father poisoned their

that he does not love
his own flesh and
blood. I encouraged
him to go and see his
father, to find out who
he is today and what
he is all about. The
young man promised
me he would. He realized his atti-
tude toward his father came from
someone he loved very much, some-
one who loved him, but who had
extremely bad feelings for his dad. I
do not know if the young man visit-
ed his father. I hope he did.
Another woman I know also
speaks badly of her children's father.
But this man does pay child support
and he has a life insurance policy for
his children. He is a good father and
a hardworking man. The woman
simply has ill feelings toward him.
Although the courts do not
approve of one parent bashing the
other, it happens all the time.
Naturally, if the parents are divorc-
ing, their feeling for each other may
be negative. What is horrible is
divorced parents who pass these
feelings on to their children.
The Bible says to honor thy
father and thy mother. The Koran
instructs us to honor our parents.
How a child can choose to have
absolutely nothing to do with their
very owrtrparent is beyond me.
Sure, if a problem exists, I under-
stand monitored or brief visits. But
to go for years, or all one's life, with
no phone calls, no letters, no birth-
day or Mother's Day or Father's Day
cards is different. To allow decades
to pass with no visits at all is cruel
and inhumane. It hurts me personal-
ly to see children treat their parents
thatway. I feel empathy for the dis-
carded parent. I am a parent; I have
the love of some of my children, the
disdain of others. Only the Lord
knows the pain this causes.
Something needs to be done.
Perhaps divorcing parents should be
required to go through a special
course instructing them on better
ways to channel their anger than
through their children. Maybe some
changes in the legal system need to
occur like follow-ups from Social
Services or specially trained workers
who to help parents and children
adjust to divorce. A program is defi-
nitely needed to prevent such ugli-
ness from blossoming in the hearts
of our youth.
The Lord gives us only one
mother and one father. We should
love, honor, respect and include our
parents in our lives. My parents are
deceased. I would give the world to
be able to have them here with me.
Without our parents we would not
even exist. Just think of what our
mothers went through to give birth
to us.
There is always another side to
any story. The parent who speaks
negatively about the other parent is
only harming their child.

Under the Clean Air Act. the
EPA is required to review health
data every five years and determine
if the public health is being protect-
ed. The review that lead to the reg-
ulations was supposed to be done
during the Bush administration. A
lawsuit by the American Lung
Association was needed to make the
EPA get on its horse.
The industries that will be most
affected by the regulations have
balked at the cost. The new regula-
tions have a proposed cost of $8.5
billion. $8.5 billion is a lot of money,
but the benefits of the new regula-
tions clearly outweigh the costs.
The benefits range from reduced
asthma and decreased hospital
admissions to stopping the prema-
ture deaths caused by the smog and
soot. Asthma is up 118 percent
since 1980. A total of 20 million
people live in areas where levels of

OPINION

Columnist
Tobacco settlement shrouded in ambiguity
There definitely seems to be an air
of ambiguity surrounding last week's
settlement between the major
tobacco companies and the attor-
neys general. Big tobacco (Philip
Morris, RJR Nabisco, B.A.T.
Industries PLC's Brown &
Williamson and Loews Corps
Lorillard) hurriedly agreed to pro-
posals set forth by the attorneys gen-
eral. The gist: tobacco companies
agreed to shell out
$368.5 billion in com-
pensation over the next
25 years; to drastically
alter their marketing
programs (including
future omission of
human or cartoon fig-
ures from advertise-
ments i.e. so long, Joe
Camel and Marlboro
Many anti-smoking
advocates think big
tobacco got off too
easy. Regardless, the
proposal was a step
in the right direction
Man); and to genuflect fnm a publtC-health
to the power of the J " ,
FDA point-of-vtew.
The attorneys gen-
eral are calling their
efforts land-mark, monumental.
Mississippi's Michael Moore said it
is "the most historic public-health
achievement in history They made
it sound like they had discovered the
cure for cancer; in truth, much of
what they've done may never see
the light of day. The settlements
have to next pass through the Oval
Office and then Congress. The
Clinton camp coyly sends inferences
about its stance. Press Secretary
Michael McCurry said the White
House thought big tobacco would
give more if it wasn't rewarded too
carry. They were also covering the
FDA's backside in case the proposals
fell through. Essentially, the. White
House did not want to show their
hand until the last possible moment.
Even after the settlement was
reached Clinton was reticent about
his position, "Now what we have to
do is subject the pro-
posed agreement to
strict scrutiny
When and if the pro-
posal does get the
Presidential approval,
it will be up to the
lethargic men and
women inside the
Capitol tc seal the
deal. Senate majority
leader Trent Lott of
Mississippi says his
chamber won't even
begin to consider the
plan until late fall,
which gives the Hill's legislators
plenty of time to pick apart the 68
page proposal. Scott Harshbarger,
president of the National
Association of Attorneys General,
"What is our biggest fear? Congress.
Our fear is that all this hard work
could go down the drain
If the proposal does pass, what
does all this mean to the consumer
and, more importantly, to the farm-
ers of North Caroiina? Tobacco com-
panies will have to raise prices. Some
predictions foresee a doubling of
cost to consumer. A pack of Reds will
probably run you about $4.00 to
$5.00. As such, the number of
American smokers is bound to
decrease; perhaps as much as 10.
However, the stock market has
watched all this unflinchingly. In
fact, stocks of Philip Morris and RJR
have steadily increased the past few
months, a good indicator of stability
and continued consumer sales. Why?
The $368.5 billion over a quarter
century will not even put a dent in
big tobacco's over-seas market (in
the US alone, cigarette sales consti-
tute a $50 billion industry annually).
Many anti-smoking advocates
think big tobacco got off too easy.
Regardless, the proposal was a step
right direction from a public-health
point-of-view. The attorneys general
pressed big tobacco to submit to the
regulatory heel of the FDA to admit
to wrong-doing (rather monumental
in and of itself), and to curb future
marketing ploys. On the other side
of trie line, a steady over-seas indus-
try and decreased risk of future legal
assault buffers the stocks of big
tobacco. For the North Carolina
tobacco growers, only time will tell
how hard they'll be hit, but if the
market stays stable and European
and Asian sales stay strong they
should be able to weather this storm.

Sammy Hagar
Marching To Mars
7 OUT OF 10
Pat Reid
ASSISTANT LIFESTYLE EDITOR
It's been almost a year since the music
world was hit with the news of another
singer shake-up in what seemed to be a
stable Van Halen. After 10 years as lead
singer, Sammy Hagar was no longer a part
of Van Halen and original singer David
Lee Roth was back in control. Of course,
we know now that this would not last
long, and before all was said and done,
Gary Cherone from the metal band
Extreme would be in the driver's seat.
That has been the last word from Van
Halen in months. Hagar, however, didn't
cry over spilled milk, but jumped right
Inck into action with his first solo album
00 new material in a decade, and his first
solo album without help from the Van
Halen brothers since 1984's V.O.A.
Hagar started work on Marching to Mars
immediately after getting his walking
papers from Van Halen. former Grateful
Dead drummer Mickey Hart helped get
Hagar motivated to pick up and move on,
and ended up producing and playing on
the title track.
The other songs have been graced
with the likes of Damon Johnson of
Brother Cane, Huey Lewis, and Matt
Sorum and Slash from Guns N' Roses.
The result is an album different from
Hagar's time with Van Halen, and a sub-
stantial leap forward for Hagar musically,
as Manhmg to Mars is a diverse mix of
blues, rock and funk.
Marching To Mars kicks off with the
first single, "Little White Lies
Originally a song about racism, Hagar
revamped the lyrics after seeing an inter-
view with Eddie and Alex Van Halen on
TV The final version instead became a
musical commentary on the break-up.
"Little White Lies" sets the stage for the
diversity of the album as it contains strong
blues riffs, acoustic slide guitar, courtesy
of Roy Rogers, and straight ahead power
chord rock by Hagar and Slash.
"Salvation on Sand Hill" is next and
also contains various parts and elements.
"Salvation" allows Hagar to use his full
vocal range, first using low soothing tones
to draw you into the song before tapping
into the power of his voice to take the
song to a new level. In fact, this arrange-
ment seems to be the formula for the
whole album. Slow, mellow starts tend to
give way to powerful rock leads and full-
tilt guitar solos, giving the album a
smooth, flowing texture that makes the
whole greater than the sum of its parts.
While all the songs are good, when the
album is put on and left to play through,
it flows in a way that makes the 50 min-
utes of music seem to go by in five.
Other highlights include the Bootsy
Collins bass driven "Would You Do It For
Free? the upbeat "Both Sides Now
and the ballad "Kama named for his
newborn daughter. It seems that ten years
in a band didn't hamper Hagar at all, and,
in fact, may have caused improvements.
Instead of the strong guitar sound of his
previous solo albums, Mars has an excel-
lent balance between all elements, and
ends up with no one instrument dominat-
ing the others. In fact, with another album
or two of the quality of Marching to Mars,
look for Hagar to be on his way to huge
success, perhaps the biggest success of his
career.

Patriotic pride shines on video

SENIOR WRITER
I gather Raleigh's Boy Wonder Jinx
are a tad hesitant about growing up.
First, there's the name of the band's
new album: Left Handed Smoke
Shifter. This most precious of tools
should be familiar to any former
summer camp attendees who have
been sent on a fruitless pursuit of a
left handed smoke shifter by cruel
campers. Then there are the songs.
On "Bike Ride the first track
on the album, lead singer Dan
Phillips tells us that he stiH calls
shotgun, but can't ride "my my bike
anymore A great song, "Bike Ride"
is certainly worthy of any all-star
indie anthem compilation (there's
gotta be one). The song smacks ya
with its pulsing bass riff and sticky
pants lyrics: "The bonfire skiesyour
brearh minr eves never buy your ice
cream cones never kiss your collar
bonesyour breath mint eyes under
bonfire skies.
The band has no guitarist; the
bass does the rocking. The guys in
Girls Against Boys, with their dual
bassists, might sound like the Boy
Wonder Jinx if they got laid less
often. The band's sound and intro-
spective lyrics also shares common
ground with Sebadoh. Phillips's
vocals are sort of a cross between
Lou Barlow's sleepy whisperings
and Robert Pollard's (Guided by
Voices) pseudo-British accent.
Have you been meaning to sway
more often? "Hillsborough and
Wade" will cause widespread sway-
ing I'm sure. Complemented by a
nice, little keyboard melody, the
song takes a disillusioned trip
through the streets of Raleigh:
"Between Hillsborough and Wade, a
conscious circle is madethe bal-
ances are swayedWhy was I so dis-
mayed with Hillsborough and
Wade?" Sound familiar?
Continuing the disenchantment
with aging theme, Isft Handed
Smoke Shifter offers "Way Past 21"
and "Thirtynothing" (possibly just
disenchantment with the TV show,
but I'm counting it anyway). "Way
Past 21's" roaring chorus sounds like
Superchunk at their best.
"Thirtynothing" offers, "Man they
caught our breath last nightHope
and Michael had a fight, but no one
cheated so I guess it's alright I'm
glad it's alright, too.
"Goner" and "Local Hero" are
also fitting for your next all-
American-super-lo-fi-indic-rock-
explosion mix tape. I am a critic;
hear me label. One of the few non-
pleasant songs on the album is
"Italics Mine It gives me an
uneasy British-pop vibe bubbling in
my stomach, projecting nasty
visions of Oasis and feuding
Gallagher brothers.
By the way, if you ever do find a
left handed smoke shifter, give me a
call and we'll go snipe hunting.
"I'm proud to be an American where at least 1 know I'm free, and I won't
forget the men who died and gave that right to me This energetic cho-
rus from a popular country song, the name of which escapes me, has been
echoing through my skull the past few days. Independence Day is rapidly
approaching, or have you not noticed the significant increase of fireworks
for sale at every corner of Greenville? People will party and celebrate July
4th, some with genuine regard and pride for the nation, others with little
notice or care. But, nonetheless, people will celebrate.
While most Americans will take advantage of this special holiday by
grilling outside or soaking in the sun at the beach, some will simply stay
inside at home. For the latter group, I offer you a way to celebrate your
freedom without breaking a sweat - watch a patriotic movie.
Patriotism takes many forms, and many films have dealt with the sub-
ject in various manners. Some have expressed their love for America
through shameful propaganda, some have been critical by dealing with the
country's darker moments, and some have simply expressed idealistic
enthusiasm for a country that is, in theory, a true place of opportunity.
So, for all you patriots out there, get ready to wave those flags because
here is a sampling of some must-see patriotic fums that make any July 4th
complete.
Dave - Director Ivan Reitman created the perfect optimistic American
film for the '90s with this patriotic comedy. Kevin Kline is wonderfully cast
as Dave Kovic, a regular guy who happens to be identical in appearance to
the President of the U.S. When the President suffers a major stroke under
"questionable" circumstances, Dave is "encouraged" by the White House
to play the part as our nation's leader. Dave is a rare gem that manages to
examine dirty politics without being depressing. It is in every sense a very
fun and funny movie.
Apollo Li - Ron Howard's best film to date is also one of the best films
ever made detailing America's quest for the moon. Based on the real-life
drama of the Apollo 13 mission, this story is American determination cap-
tured on film. Tom Hanks leads a stellar cast that includes the likes of
Kevin Bacon. Bill Paxton and Ed Harris.
Bob Rolierts - While Tim Robbins' directorial debut may carry all the
qualities of a documentary, it is in fact a biting political satire. Robbins
plays a right-wing politicianperformer who wins people by pulling such
antics as singing folk songs. Robbins, who is very much an activists' film-
maker, explores the dirty underbelly of American politics with enough cre-
ative energy and inspired humor to make even the stiffest conservative
crack a smile.
All the President's Men - Dirtv politics gets dealt a rawer hand in Alan J.
Pakula's masterpiece. Robert Redford and Dustin Hoffman play real-life

1116 - This delightful film is a musical account of history's grandest
moment, the creation of the Declaration of Independence. Major histori-
cal figures such as lohn Adams and Benjamin Franklin will seem larger
than life once you watch and hear their struggle to create a new nation.
Glory - Some of America's greatest heroes, men who have died to help
create America, rarely have their story told. Glory is an invigorating and. at
times, sad narrative about the black soldiers of the Civil War who fought
for a cause they truly believed in. Morgan Freeman and Dcnzcl
Washington shine as two soldiers who share a dream.
Clear ami Present Danger - While Harrison Ford does not qualify as an
American hero, he is better than any contemporary actor at playing one.

Jungle Lords

ANDY TTRNER
I.IEESTH.F EDITOi
Screw Calgon, I decided to let cashmere take me away last Wednesday at
Peasant's.
.After a dav that was hot as the devil's privates, it was quite agreeable to
relax and cool off to the surfjungle rock of Richmond's Cashmere Jungle
Lords. It was pleasant at Peasant's. (I'll sell that as a sloganjingle if the
cash is right.)
The band is touring to promote their recently released album. Southern
Barber Supply. It was the first time the Lords had visited the Emerald City
in quite some time. In fact, the lead singer remarked they hadn't played in
Greenvilie since '86 at the New Deli. You may remember the New Deli if
you happen to be on the six-year college plan.
The band's first few songs seemed a bit lackluster. The Cashmere
Jungle Lords were possibly still stunned at the hellheat that attacked
Greenville like a rabid, snarling pit bull. Or maybe it was just the sparse
crowd. The crowd did grow as the night went on, as did the crowd's enthu-
siasm. As a result, the band picked things up after the first few songs.
"Chicken Rckin offered the crowd a glimpse of life and culture in the
confines of Charles Counry. Virginia. Pig pickin's apparently just don't get
it for Charles Countians. The song was a raw rawk workout chat got sever-
al crowd members to dance and countless others to have visions of finger
lickin' chickens crowing in their heads.
Many of the band's songs do seem to inspire widespread dancing and
shimmy-shimmv koko bopping. With only three members, the band is sim-
ilar in sound and spirit to Chapel Hill's Southern Culture on the Skids with
a little lesa camp and goofiness. SCOTS would have no doubt had chicken
parts a slingin' during "Chicken Pickin
Some of the band's songs were duds. "Mr. Melrose Ave sounded like
limp, bow-legged Link Wirav, the original punk. However, all in all, the show
was quite enjovable. The Cashmere Jungle Lords will be playing at
Peasant's again at the end of July. Go. See. Support your local music clubs.
Let them know vou care. Shucks.
I applaud Peasant's for bringing in a band that got its inspiration from
sand insread of roots. Please continue.

America unraveling and decaying.
Stone is verv much a product of the
'60s. yet his films are visual punches
in the face that address contempo-
rary concerns. Love him or hate him,
Stone uses his freedom of speech
right in unforgettable ways.
Mr. Smith Goes to Washington -
Frank Capra and Jimmy Stewart
were a match made in heaven when
it came to capturing idealism,
enthusiasm and determination on
the silver screen, and this classic
picture is one of the best ever made.
Stewart uses his innocent charm to
outstanding effect as a young, hope-
ful senator who quickly discovers
that in order to play politics you
have to be willing to get your hands
dirtv. This is truly an inspiring gem
that should be required viewing for
all political potentials.
Yankee Doodle Dandy - James
Cagney may have been famous for
playing bad as a villainous gangster,
but his Oscar-worthy moment came
in the form of a musical. Chronicling
the rise to fame of George M.
Cohan, the man responsible for such
patriotic songs as "Yankee Doodle
Dandy this film is perfect for
Independence Day. If every
American has just n touch of the
pride, energy and patriotism for
their country as Mr. Cohan did for
his, then maybe, just maybe, the
world would be a lot more hopeful.
And there you go, my personal
picks for the fourth of July. I know
it's a biased list, but it's my
American right to be biased, and it's
your American right to take it or
leave it (and I don't need to know
your reply to that).
Whatever your stance on our
country may be, have a safe and
happv fourth. God bless America!

The East Carolinian
Celebs hit the links for Ronald McDonald House
AMANDA ROSS
SPORTS K. IHTOK
What do vou get when you combine celebrities and golf? The 13th annual
Michael Jordan Celebrity Golf Classic.
The annual tournament, which benefits the Ronald McDonald houses of
Greenville. Chapel Hill. Durham and Winston-Salem. brought the stars to
Greenville for a great cause this past Sunday. While the celebrities were
there to entertain and sign autographs, they knew the real reason that
brought them to Brook Valley Country Club.
"Sure there are a lot of celebrities here, and it's a great opportunity to see
them and possibly get an autograph, but what we want you guys to do is to
take the message back that there are a lot of caring individuals who feel like
they want to give their time and support to help out some very good caus-
es Jordan said. "I think this is a very good cause for the children and the
families who are going through difficult times. We all are very healthy and
verv fortunate to come out here and play golf and swing a golf club
Jordan, who has never won his own tournament, led his team to a 15-
under 57 gross score, which translated into a 47 with the six player's handi-
caps factoted in. The team of Grant Aleksander. who plays Phillip Spaulding
on Guiding Light, finished at 29-under par with a 43 to captain the winning
team.
Some celebrities, like legendary former Notre Dame Head Coach Lou
Holtz, were playing for the first time and thought the fans that came out to
watch were just great.
"The fans were tremendous, and the fact that I lived in Raleigh and
coached North Carolina State for so many years we have a lot of great mem-
ories Holtz said. "It's great to be back here
It wasn't just sporting legends that were on hand. Hootie and the
Blowfishs' Darius Rucker partook in the activities and knows it was for a
great charity.
"Everything is for a good cause
Rucker said. "I wouldn't be here if it
wasn't. This is for the Ronald
McDonald house, so it's like any-
time you can come out and hang
with the people and play golf you
can't beat that
There was plenty of humor on hand
from everyone. During Saturday's
practice round Denver Bronco's
wide receiver Willie Green and
ESPN's Stuart Scott let everyone
know that they don't bet money on
any games.
"Hey. we don't bet money, that's
illegal Green said. "He (Scott)
could write a book about owing me
monev and it would get out the
wrong way, so we don't bet
And Scott came back, in his best
SportsCenter voice, and mocked a Bronco's highlight with Green in it.
"Yeah, because this fall the next time I do a Denver Bronco highlight and
Elvvav goes deep to Willie Gteen, I'm going to say, 'John Elway going back
deep trying to break off of a little something to Willie Gre� Hey Willie you
owe me some money for those skins
But on a more serious note. Green said we all need to help benefit char-
itable events more than we do.
"I think it needs to be recognized a lot more than it is Green said. "A
lot of people don't realize how fortunate we have it. This tournament, which
Michael is putting on. is a great thing and guys like Stuatt and Jet! (Blake)
and all the rest of the other guys that are coming out to support it are hav-
ing a great time. 1 think we are having a better time than the kids are
Future hall of famer and former Cleveland Indians baseball player Dave
Winfield was also a first timer to this tournament, and was glad to help out
the kids the tournament was benefiting.
"When you're doing anything for kids and their families, and the situa-
tions and predicaments they're in. Ronald McDonald goes way back and
does a great job Winfield said. "It's a great tournament and I'm glad to see
so manv people out here. I'm glad to be here in Greenville
Winfield hasn't been plaving golf for too long, but said he enjoys the game
and enjoys helping out the Ronald McDonald house while playing with the
Tyson penalized
for biting ear
LAS VEGAS (AP) - Mike Tvson was
temporarily suspended and his $30
million purse frozen yestetday, the
first step by Nevada boxing authori-
ties in disciplining Tyson for biting
Evander Holyfield during their
heavyweight championship fight.
The suspension is a preliminary
move until the commission meets
next week to detetmine its final
action.
Tyson was not present at the
hearing.
The commission voted 5-0 to
serve Tyson with a complaint yester-
day and sign a waiver that would
enable the disciplinary hearing to
begin on July 8.
"We're obviously going to ask for
some reason and judgment" at the
hearing. Tyson attorney Marty
Keach said.
"He also wants to fight again.
That's what he does for
a living. That's what his
whole life is based on
Keach said.
Tyson threw himself
at the mercy of Nevada
boxing regulators on
Monday in the wake of
his disqualification for
biting Holyfield, saying
he "just snapped" and
will not contest any penalty the
commission wants to impose.
"I only ask that it's not a penalty
for life for this mistake Tyson said,
reading a statement.
Asked by reporters if Tyson's
apology might lessen his eventual
punishment, commission chairman
Elias Ghanem said it would not.
"Something bad happened in the
ring. The apology doesn't change
what happened in the ring
Ghanem said.
"The thing I liked most is he said
he needed some psvchological and
psychiatric treatment. I wouldn't
look at it .is mitigating anvthing he
said.
Ghanem refused to comment on
the range of penalties.
The New York limes and rhe
New York Dairy News reported ves-
terdav that Ivson will receive at
least a one-year suspension, accord-
ing to Nevada sources. I he New
York Post reported lyson will likely
be suspended for a ycai and lined So

"i'm picking up golf a little more Winfield said. "I haven't been out of
the game that much, but when you're able to hangout with some of the guys
you played with or against and have respected for so many years, and the
celebrities draw other people which helps to make a great charity event, and
vou have a great event here

around the country each night, and the predictor of ECU's win over Miami
last vear. was there to sport some golf moves. But just as the balls were fly-
ing, so were his excuses.
' "The club's broken, my clothes didn't get here and I've been wearing the
same underwear and socks for a day and half, so that's all my excuses
Spanier said
Spanier savs he enjoys coming down here to Pirate land.
"I like coming out and meeting the people of Greenville, see what those
Pirate fans are like Spanier said.
Spanier took time out to make a few predictions of his own for Pirate
football this vear.
"I like the offense and love the team this year again Spanier said.
"You're looking at 9-2 or 8-3. somewhere around there. Maybe better

of his purse, or S3 million. But they
can suspend him from the sport of
boxing for as long as he lives if they
choose.
A new federal law took effect
todav that forces other states to
honor any suspension that Nevada
imposes.
The commission also moved to
cancel the check written to Tyson
for S29.824.WM) from promoter Don
King and asked that a second check
be made out to the commission and
put into an interest-bearing
account.
Tyson apologized to everyone
from the judge who sentenced him
for his rape conviction in
Indianapolis to boxing fans around
the world for behavior he said even
he couldn't explain.
Most of all, he apologized to
Holyfield for the
bizarre end to the
fight.
"Evander. I am
sorry Tyson said,
"lbu are a champion
and I respect that. I
am only saddened
that this fight did not
go further so that the
boxing fans of the
world might see for themselves who
would come out on top
Standing alone in front of a
lectern, his right eye still puffy and
bandaged from the fight. Tyson
spoke in a calm, yet vulnerable voice
and took full responsibility for his
actions.
For 4 minutes and 16 seconds,
the most feared man in boxing
pleaded for forgiveness and said he
was seeking psychological help for
biting Holyfield on the ears, taking a
gash out of one.
"I have reached out since
Saturday to ask my god to help me
and to renew my faith as a true
believer said Tyson, who converted
to Islam while serving his prison
sentence. "1 have also reached out
since Saturday to the medical pro-
fessionals for help to tell me why I
did what I did. And I will have that
help
Holyfield said 'Tyson's apology
was "a go id gesture.

Looking for anorher way to get information about ECL athletics other than
the newspaper or television? 'Then get your typing fingers ready.
The Crossbones website offers Pirate fans a chance to read all about ECU
athletics, look at updated pictures of the stadium construction, and talk with
Pirate fans around the country.
Started in the fall of l'W5. the website was the brain child of Allen
McDavid and Coby Heath.
McDavid. who is the vice-president of Marketing for SpyderByte
Communications in Greensboro, says the popularity of the site has grown
tremendously.
"When we first started, there was a trickle of hard core Pirate fans that
moved over from Prodigv and AOL McDavid said. "Soon, through word of
mouth, e-mail. etc. the news got out
The news really gets out during football season when the site is hit more
than one million times.
Now during football season, wc have monthly traffic exceeding
1,060,000 hits McDavid said. "Our audience not only includes ECL fans
but fans of many other schools
The site offers a variety of amenities. On any given day, an updated pic-
ture can be found of the new upper deck being added to Dowdv-Ticklen.
Mark Bather, who is owner and President of the Barber Agency Inc.
Advertising and Public Relations, is on the adv isorv board of the Crossbones
and is in charge of updating the pictures of rhe stadium construction.
"Everyday, ideally, I send an updated image on the stadium update pro-
jci r Barber said. "I tr to do it everyday but it's reallv more like four or five
times a week
There is also a Pirate Talk page. Manv people post questions and com
menrs on this page and anyone can answer back. You can go back and forth
as manv rimes as vou would like and talk about E( :l sports.
'The site also otters feature articles about ECL sports and anvthing
nationally that is written about EC! athletics.
McDavid savs this is a favorite page of his.
"If I had to pick one feature, it would probabK be Pirate Talk Mi David
The Crossbones website

www.crossbones.com
said.
This is nor necessarily a chat line, but you can get messages that are only
two minutes old. Barber savs it's not only ECU fans that talk on Pirate Talk.
Sometimes our neighbors up in the Chapel Hill area like to get on and try to
talk some trash about ECU sports.
"People from other schools, such as fans from Carolina like ro get on the
site and talk big about Carolina and it gives Pirates a chance to mouth off
back to them Barber said. "A lot of people from Conference USA get on the
message board and post things that are interesting about their schools so you
can learn alwwt the other schools too
The Crossbones site has been going through a lot of improvements and
changes lately.
"The most obvious improvements are functionally (through the frames
environment): better graphics and faster download speeds McDavid said.
' VVc plan to provide more contests and games as well as implement an easy
to use chat board. We also would like to incorporate some features of special
interest to ECU students
McDavid points out that this is an easv wav for Pirate fans to get infor-
mation on E( X athletics, even from across the country.
"Imagine voi: are a Pirate fan living outside of Eastern North Carolina
McDavid said. "Very little information on the Pirates is available to you
through traditional media outlets. This website tills the void for those fans,
as well is providing a dailv meeting place for Pirate fans to share info with
like-minded folks
The website can be found at www.crossbones.com. McDavid hopes that
tans realize how nuch work has gone into creating and improving this web-
site tor T.( :l fans.
"I would like rhem ro know that a great deal of time, money and labor of

Tyson is still on probation for his
rape conviction. Authorities said his
actions during the fight and his
efforts to brawl with police who
tried to separate the two camps after
the disqualification would probably
not be cause to revoke his probation.
George M. Walker, the Marion
County, Ind chief probation officer,
said no action is pending against
Tyson in Indiana, where he was con-
victed of raping Desiree Washington
and spent three years in prison. He
said he would be watched closely.

being, I'll be in a little more fre-

do about how to control his anger

he had "no reason to believe" that
Las Vegas police would submit a
complaint against Tyson.

Graham Marsh wins on 18th hole
OLYMPIA FIELDS, III. (AP) - Graham Marsh over-
came seven bogeys in the final round Sunday, making
a birdie on the 17th hole and a perfect par on No. 18
to edge buddy John Bland and win the U.S. Senior
Open.
It was the first major championship for Marsh, an
Australian who had come close but failed in his first
three appearances in the tournament. He won despite
a closing round of 4-over-par 74.
Victorious for the second consecutive week on the
Senior PGA Tour, Marsh earned $232,500 by being the
only player to shoot even-par at Olympia Fields
Country Club's challenging North Course. He is the
first Senior Open winner not to break par sine- Jack
Nicklausin 1991.
Bland, a South African who has finished in iu top
seven in six of his last seven events but hasn't won this
year, ended at 1-over. Gil Morgan and Tom Wargf were
another stroke back.
Nicklaus, who played well but was able to make
only two of his 15 birdie putts Sunday, was in a five-
player group that tied for fifth at 4-over. He shot 69,
his best round of the tournament. Hale Irwin, the
tour's top money v. inner, also was in that group after
carding Sunday's best score, 67.
No messin' around: It's the free-agent
season in the NHL
(AP)-It's hard to imagine Mark Messier playing for
anyone else but the New York Rangers. However, that
became a possibility when the NHLs free-agent mar-
ket opened today.
The highly popular Messier, who led the Rangers to
their first Stanley Cup championship in 54 years in
1994, is among dozens of unrestricted free agents who
can now talk contract with any of the 26 teams in the
league.
The list includes two players from the defending
Cup champion Detroit Red Wings, center Igor
Larionov and right wing Tomas Sandstrom, and such
highly regarded goalies as San Jose's Ed Bclfour,
Dallas' Andy Moog and Glenn Healy of the New York
Rangers.
Also available are such forwards as Colorado's Mike
Keane, Esa Tikkanen and Russ Courtnall of the
Rangers and Florida's Brian Skrudland, and defense-
men Luke Richards of Edmonton and Gary Galley of
Buffalo.
New York Islanders general manager Mike Milbury,
whose team is reportedly interested in Messier, does-
n't expect a fire sale today.
"There's no urgency on (the players') part
I Milbury said. "And the only urgency on our part is to
make contact to express interest and let them know
'we're xcrious
Derek King, the Islanders' veteran forward, is
among the unrestricted free agents. As far as restrict-
ed free agents are concerned, Milbury is one genera!
manger who is in no rush to act.
"Restricted free agents are going to dangle there
for quite some time. It's a much more delicate issue
Milbury said that all but one of his own restricted
rVee agents, forward Niklas Andersson, will be made a
qualifying offer.
McLaughlin wins
Lysol 200
WATKINS GLEN, N.Y (AP) - Mike "Magic Shoes"
McLaughlin lived up to his nickname on the only road
course stop in the NASCAR Busch Series, winning the
Lysol 200 at Watkins Glen International Sunday.
McLauglin, of Waterloo, N.Y, took the lead for the
first time on lap 58 of 82 laps, and beat Team 34 team-
mate Todd Bodinc by .431 seconds.
McLaughlin, who started sixth in the field, spent
much of the day trying to get to the front. But once he
took the lead, he stayed there.
It was the second win of the year and third of his
career for McLaughlin, who earned $56,987.
"There was some concern for fuel at the end of the
race, but they didn't tell me so I didn't know
McLaughlin said. "There probably wasn't much left,
but I had no indication of it
McLaughlin's win was the first for a NASCAR
Busch Series driver in the seven years the Series has
visited the Glen.
Joe Nemechek, who started from the pole, finished
third, followed by Jimmy Spencer, who started from
the back of the field, and three-time defending cham-
pion Terry Labonte.
Bodinc, who was second in the Scries point stand-
ings coming into the race, overtook Randy Lajoie, who
finished 21st, for first place after 17 races on the 30-
race schedule.
McLaughlin, Bodinc and Spencer all pitted when
the yellow flag came out on lap 46 after Buckshot
Jones spun in turn 10. Nemechek, who was in the lead
at the time, did not pit until lap 55 under the green.
Labonte came in on the next lap, which allowed
McLaughlin to take the lead.
Dale Earnhardt Jr who qualified his car ninth, fin-
ished 39th, after incurring engine trouble on lap 12.
Hornets threaten to leave coliseum
after three years
CHARLOTTE (AP) - The Charlotte Hornets have
announced that they won't plav at the Charlotte
Coliseum after the 1999-2000 ss unless they get a
better deal from the city.
Hornets owner George Shinn ays he's confident
he and the city will work out an arrangement that
keeps the team playing in Charlotte. The city and the
team are scheduled to start negotiating a new lease
Thursday.
"This decision on our part to elect an early termi-
nation of our existing agreement is not prompted by a
desire or an intent to leave Charlotte, but simply a
need to keep our options open Shinn wrote in a
letter that city officials received Monday.
City officials said they were expecting the Hornets'
letter.
"This is not something that surprised us said City
Manager Pam Syfert.
Council members have instructed city staffers to
try to hammer out a new lease with the Hornets.
Shinn has offered to pay $1.4 million a year for a five-
year lease that would allow the team to run the
Coliseum and receive all revenues.
The team now pays about $400,000 a year under a
lease that allows it to split parking, concessions and
skybox revenues with the Coliseum Authority on game
days.
Hornets officials say they need more money to pay
rising player salaries.
Shinn said a new lease would give the team more
time to work on its ultimate goal of building an
uptown arena. He has said he'd like city taxpayers to
vote on whether to help the Hornets build a new
arena.
