Fridley accused of making false statements to media

Elections to look into comments
The District 3 race for City Council heated when Steve
McLawhorn challenged his opponent, Inez Fridley, on
her statements concerning student voter registration.
Fridley stated that when a student registers in Pitt

Fridley said, "The posters on

It's just not the case.

Fridley's comments as false;
however, she still stands by her
In Fridley's letter to the editor
that can be found on the opinion page, she says,
"Students who choose to register in

a citizen does not have to change
their driver's license when they

"The law, according to the DMV,

is required said Fridley.
Margaret Hardee, the director of the Pitt County
Board of Elections, said the board does not ask people if
they have changed their licenses or if they pay local
taxes when they vote.
In The Dairy Reflector, Steve McLawhorn said,
"Both of these things are false.You don't have to have a

ECU's Student Recreation Center has lost
almost 500 towels since Aug. 1.
"Overall, to provide the towel service,
from laundry to soap to personnel managing
those towels, it costs about $1 per student.
So, it costs us about $17,000 to maintain that
towel service said Todd King, marketing
King claims that in the last two months
seven dozen large towels and 33 dozen hand
rowels have been stolen. This problem,
noticed back in March, is threatening the
future of the towel service the SRC
The first step the SRC implemented was
to go from the big, luxurious, terry-cloth
towels, which cost $3.17 per towel, to
smaller terry-cloth towels, costing $1.75 per
"People arc walking out of the SRC with
the nice towels; therefore, causing all of the
SRC users to have to use a cheaper, smaller
towel King said.
Students have already started
complaining about the smaller towel the
SRC had to start using.
The next step the SRC implemented was
to limit the number of towels the students
were allowed to use.
"The service has been exacerbated by the
fact that students grab a towel, wipe their
face and grab another. The students use too
many towels. They use one to stand on, one
for the hair and a couple to dry off with.
We'll go into the locker room and find them
on the floor or find some still folded that the
students didn't even use said Pat Cox,
associate director for the SRC.
The service has gone from the ability to
use an unlimited amount of large towels, to
the ability to use just one large towel.
Howerver, the towel theft didn't stop;
therefore, the students are now only allowed
two small towels per person.
"We're doing all we can. We think it is a
vital service, we think the students
appreciate it, and we're doing all we can to
save it. By January, if this stealing does not
stop, we might have to do something
different. If it came down to it, whether to
have the towel service or increase student
fees to maintain the service, more than likely
we would discontinue the towel service, or
limit it severely in some fashion King said.
Towels arc not only being stolen at the

Low salary for graduate students at ECU is a
direct downfall to being a smaller university.
A recent survey in The East Carolinian
concluded that ECU offers a lower salary than
several other universities and no medical
benefits to their graduate teaching assistants.
However, the article did not include the
reasons why ECU lags behind other state
"All universities want to be able to offer their
graduate teaching assistants sufficient salaries
and adequate medical benefits; however, not
all universities are able to do so. We simply do
not have the funding. North Carolina supplies
funding to universities based on a formula
driven process. The larger the university, the
higher the probability for financial assistance
and additional state funding said Andrea
Harrcl, administrative manager for the division
of research and graduate studies.
ECU does offer other services to the
student body; however, some of these
programs don't technically qualify as benefits.
"We offer 63 out-of-statc waivers a year
based upon the student's admission testing
scores and overall GPA. It's based on a first
come, first serve basis Harrcl said. "When the
63 are gone, that's it. Students do have to have
an assistantship in order to get the waiver;
however, it's not a benefit because it's not part
of the assistantship
In addition to offering numerous
educational benefits, several departments, also
offer advancement possibilities.
The English department has approximately
45 graduate student
assistants who work in
specialized lab settings
or participate in
tutorial work programs.
"Some of our graduate
present papers. The
out of our own funds,
helps students defray
costs for presenting
papers. For example,
we may pay for
mileage. In other words, we'll pay for a van for
out-of-state conferences said Angel Savage,
assistant to the chair.
The English department offers stipends
through research; however, the math
department doesn't offer any benefits other
than the pay.
"We have between seven and ten graduate
teaching assistants every semester. When I
receive extra funding information, I make it
available to the students. It's also posted
outside of my door said Dr. Robert Hursey,
director of graduate studies.
ECU may not currently offer any of the
major benefits of larger state universities, but
the faculty and staff are working on promoting
new ideas and new programs. Hopefully, these
innovative plans will eventually materialize.
"There's always talk to do more for
students Harrcl said. "Currently, nothing's in
writing. It's in the discussion phase and no one
knows what will become of it

The East Carolinian
It's close to election time and things are getting a little heated in Greenville. The
latest greatest controversy is Steve McLawhorn's accusations that Inez Fridley
misrepresented election laws to cause confusion. Fridley apparently claimed, in an
interview printed in The Daily Reflector, that if students wish to register to vote in Pitt
County, they must also change their driver's license and pay Pitt County taxes. This is,
according to the DMV and the Pitt'County Board of Elections, quite untrue. The
requirements for registering to vote are listed on the registration.
r As things stand, there are quite a few students who were confused by the statement
and kept from registering to vote. That's just a few voices snuffed out, but in a country
such as ours, when even one voice is snuffed out, it hurts us all. Democracy is supposed
to be a thing for all people. When a specific class or group of people is singled out as not
being eligible to vote due to the class or group they belong to, that is called
So the question here is not whether or not Fridley misrepresented the laws and caused
confusion. The real question is, did she do it on purpose? Of course, no one but Fridley
can answer that question, and when interviewed last Monday, she stated that she stands
by her comments.
However, it is possible that she really did think that those were the election laws. But
if that is the case, then one must wonder how she has been able to stay in office so long
and not even know the election laws of the county she works for.
Furthermore, as our representative, such incompetence would mean that Fridley is not
concerned about the students of ECU enough to check up on her facts before making a
statement that affects so many of us. A representative who cares about ECU would do
his or her homework to ensure the proper information is being conveyed.
Finally, though The East Carolinian does not endorse any specific candidate or party, we
find that whether by intention or incompetence, Inez Fridley's comments were the
source of more confusion in an already heated and confusing campaign. We at TEC hope
students will continue to turn to our pages to follow coverage of this situation as details
develop. Students can empower themselves by staying informed of turns in the
campaign and making an informed decision on election day.
Final judgment given on SRC music
The question now becomes: do
we change the station every
time someone does not like the
musk? The answer is no. I
have found some musk in the
SRC offensive not to my
religious belkfs, rather they
offend my good taste.
I am tired of all the bickering. Tired
of all the people complaining. Tired
of all the arguments for and against
Christian music being played in the
Student Recreation Center.
As for the constitutionality of the
argument I am inclined to agree. I
agree that church and state should
be held separate. The question now
becomes is playing Christian music
at a state run institution, where the
public has little choice in listening
to the music, a violation of the Bill
1 have never claimed to be a
Supreme Court judge but I do play
one in the newspaper. Since the
chance of the High Court hearing
this case is about the same as me
passing the nomination process I
will help you solve the problem.
In the case of the SRC versus
those who find Christian music
offensive I rule in a 1-0 that the
SRC docs not cross a line drawn by
the founding fathers. The playing of
Christian Music is a not violation of
the first amendment, but a catch
The second one person comes
up to a SRC employee and asks that
the music be changed, because they
fee! it is offensive to their religious
beliefs, it must be done without
question. To allow music that one
finds offensive, in respect to their
religious beliefs, is a gross violation
of the separation between church
However, if all I have written is
true, then a problem exists; define
Christian music. Not all Christian
music is easily labeled. Christian
music crosses all genres. No, I do
not mean Christian music is so good
that it eclipses all other types of
music. I simple mean that
numerous forms of Christian music
exist, from rap and country to,
believe it or not, hard-core metal.
Yet another problem pops up
some people may find certain types
of music, which is debatable as to
whether it is religious music,
offensive to their Christian beliefs.
Anti-Christ Superstar Marilyn
Manson, could be called by some as
the devil's music. Pantara, Prong,
Black Sabbath and numerous other
bands have all been called the
The question now becomes: do
we change the station every rime
someone does not like the music?
The answer is no. I have found
some music in the SRC offensive
not to my religious beliefs, rather
they offend my good taste.
Now we come to a cross-roads.
Which fork do we take? Do we allow
Christian music to be played on the
SKC, do we ban that genre of music
or do we allow anybody to claim that
music is offensive to their beliefs
and allow the station to be changed.
Well I propose two possible
solutions: one bring a walkman, ear
plugs or whatever so you do not
have to listen to the music.
The second solution is so
obvious it seems to have been
overlooked. We have a college radio
station. The SRC is supposed to be
for the college student, alumni that
wants to pay and faculty that also
has to pay. WZMB is supposed to be
for college students. Well how about
that! A perfect match.
Simple enough, two solutions
both equally good.

Little hope for SGA, former rep says
As an SGA presidential candidate
from the Spring '97 executive
council elections and the
Sophomore Class president from last
year, I have had the opportunity to
talk with students, many of whom
do not have a clue what the SGA is
or what thev do. The Student
Government has the capability of
becoming a powerful organization on
campus. The problem that stands in
the way is the corruption throughout
all three levels of the Student
Government, including the
administration. When someone the
SGA officials do not like or agree
with comes from t lie outside and
tries to change something in the
SGA, they find some way of getting
rid of him or her. It does not matter
whether they may be trying to
actually do something for the
student body; if they do not like the
person, they arc booted.
In a recent article, Scott Forbes,
our SGA president, said it was the
students' fault that the electron
went so badrv. How could this be?
l"he SGA executive council picks
the election chairperson. If the poll
workers would have been doing their
job correctly, then there would not
have to be another election, which
each pollster gets paid $50 to do. So
why are we having a new election? It
is because the elections committee
didn't know what they were doing,
not because the SGA is ethical. Hey,
the elections committee even gets
paid for working another election.
On Oct. 14, go vote for students
who you want to be our
representatives and hey, if you don't
know anybody, vote for yourself �
at least you could say you voted.
In closing, I give the SGA $9.75
per year to function, which comes to
$39 for the four years 1 am here. 1
would probably spend this amount
in toilet paper over four years, so
who cares what the SGA does? It has
been corrupt for so long, they will
always push the "good guys" out. As
a hopeful, I wish all the newly
elected representatives and officers

Has rebellion become obsolete?
Has America's youth rebelled to the

a Western ideological icon as old at

inherently involves a rebel and

persecution, mom & dad).

be some weird bunch of anti-rebels.

Perhaps, the next real rebels will

Manson, Kurt Cobfein, Mctallica,

Dean generation after generation of
rebels without a clue.

the new millennium will catalyze a
new wave of Western thought.

Tailoring parking policies unsafe to fans
This letter is in response to Russell
Lewis, TEC Sept. 23 and the
commentary by Johnny Moore in the
Pirates Chest, a publication devoted
exclusively to East Carolina Athletics.
There is a problem with parking at
ECU. The parking problems were
there before I began studies at ECU,
parking was a problem to me during
my studies at ECU, and parking
problems still exist.
This letter addresses parking
during football games and policies the
University has implemented.
The situation is very simple.
Attendance and stadium capacity
have increased. Increased attendance
yields increased demand on parking
resources. The construciron in front
of and behind the Allied Health
building has substantially decreased
parking resources. Therefore, there is
an increased competition for parking
especially in the area of Charles
The traffic problems this created
before the first two football games
were hazardous to motorists and
pedestrians on Charles Street.
So, how does the University
handle this you ask? The University
enforces a policy of not allowing
vehicles into the tailgate area until
four hours before the game, and, via
cordoining off areas, reduced the
parking spaces available in the
These two decisions were not
wise and should be rescinded by the
University. Let people go to the
tailgate area as soon as they want and
free up the parking that is roped off
during games. The hazards created
by these policies are unsafe to ECU

Fridley responds to opponent's allegations
On Tuesday, Oct. 6, my opponent in
the District 3 race, Steve
McLawhorn, accused me of
misrepresenting North Carolina
election law, avery serious charge that
I find offensive and which is
inaccurate. I believe the Board of
Elections will bear this out.
Meanwhile, I also feel a need to
respond to these allegations since
they attack my character.
When I was called by The Dairy
Reflector newspaper on Oct. 3, 1997
to comment on the student
registration drive in the campus
newspaper, my main concern was that
students who choose to register in
Greenville or change their
regist-ation to Greenville be
informed of their responsibilities
pertaining to their new residence in
Pitt County. To be eligible to register
to vote in Pitt County, a student must
be considered a resident of the
county for at least 30 days prior to the
election and, when registering to
vote, the registrant declares that his
residence is located in Pitt County.
The state law defining residence for
voting purposes provides that a
student may claim the college
community as his domicile if he
intends to make his home in the
college community while he is
attending school and he has no intent
to return to his former home after
In the last electi n, and now again
in this one, students have been
encouraged to register in or change
their registration to Greenville; this
action is portrayed as a simple
exercise that takes no effort and has
no ramifications. That simply isn't
true. Motor vehicle law and voting
laws are not connected and do not
reference each other, but they are
clear in their intent as to the
definition and responsibilities of
citizens. I did not connect or cross-
reference these two laws in my
statements to the press.
During the course of my present
and past campaigns, I have never
discouraged students from registering .
to vote .as implied by Mr. :
McLawhorn. 1 believe that everyone I
eligible to vote should register and -
vote; it is the choice of their location
that is under discussion. When I was1
called by The Dairy Reflector, my
only concern was that students be'Jl
aware of their responsibilities should
they choose to become Pitt County
residents. 1 did not initiate this as a '
campaign issue, however, student
voter registration has become a
significant tactic by severaL
candidates in two elections in,
Greenville. 1 see no reason to
continue to ignore it. I have worked
cooperatively with students
throughout my entire career at ECU -
and foun j students to be mature and
thoughtful young adults who like to
be fully in rmed. u

ASSISTANT LIFESTYLE EDITOR
With the recent popularity of stage
performances like Rkerrance, there
has been an upsurge in Celtic music
the past few years. Celtic and
jltic rock bands have been oozing
mt of the woodwork. Unfortunately,
jh of what has been-offered has
jn nothing more than clever mar-
ting to cash in on the trend. Five
its ago it was Gregorian chants,
its year it's Celtic music.
The result of this is a large cata-
log of substandard music aimed at
v-pleasing the fickle whims of the
'jnusic buying public. Kven
URiverdance itself has a bit too much
if the pop mentality in it. While it
in't be helped that Irish things and
lusic are trendy additions to the
jver-increasing "social conscious-
ness" of yuppies and New yc lanni
disciples, there are those Celtic
bands who have been around since
before it was a trend and will be

Unlike the Chieftains, who con-
centrate on canonizing the best of

personalities) or Clannad. who
devote their Celtic pop style to old

the period in Ireland's history from

This live album features songs
from the band's previous four

After a much needed fall break, most ECU students returned to campus and
settled into the comforts of their dorms and apartments. They returned to
the routine of work, classes and social life. However, one campus fraternity
decided to benefit their surrounding community
The members of the R Lambda Phi fraternity sacrificed their opulent
housing for a good cause. They constructed a cardboard village in the cen-
ter of the mall in order to raise money for their local philanthropy, The
Ronald McDonald House.
The fraternitv members slept in their cardboard village from last
Wednesdav to last Friday; informing the East Carolina University student
bods about the charity and accepting various donations.
"We have been doing this for three years said Chris Feathers, Pi
Lambda Phi president said. "Sleeping outside to raise money has not only
benefited the community but has given us a chance to bond as a brother-
Feathers also explained how they have not only made the community
aware of the charitv but have had some fun in the process. The past year the
fraternitv raised $1,200 for the Ronald McDonald House. The proceeds
help the Ronald McDonald House provide lodging for families with seri-
ously ill children. Since the house opened in 1987, it has served over 4,200
families from 68 counties in North Carolina.
"It has given us a great opportunity to give back to the Greenville com-
munitv Feathers savs.
Last year, fraternities were responsible for 25 percent of all community
service hours of campus organizations, and these organizations are constant-
ly- benefiting their environment. Philanthropy- is a tremendous part of fra-
ternity life and like the members of Pi Lambda Phi, other fraternity organi-
zations are constantly sacrificing their time, comfort and security in order to
raise monetary funding and support to organizations which provide for the
betterment and quality of life.
"We like to thank everyone for their support, especially Sigma Sigma

many others who made this year another success
Student Health promotes breast cancer awareness
Ml HUNT II KM.1TI SERVICE
Many of you have heard or know of someone
who has had breast cancer. Because this dis-

This event is devoted to educating men
and women about breast cancer facts, espe-
tiaBy the ri-k factors, warning signs and
early detection practices. Since an estimat-
ed one in eight women are at a greater risk,
it is important that they begin to familiarize

Women over age 20 are encouraged to perform
breast self-exams (BSE) each month. Why is it
so important to start this practice so early?
There are several reasons. First of all, no one
knows your breast better than you do. The
more familiar you are with what is normal for
you, 'the more likely you will be to detect a
Secondly, over 500 women under age 30 get
breast cancer each year, so you are not risk-free.
Finally if vou get in the habit of performing
BSEs now, you will likely continue the practice
throughout your life as you enter into the high-
er risk age groups.
The ten minutes a month it takes to administer
a BSE may some day save your life. Statistics
show that nine and one-half out often women
who are diagnosed and treated early for breast
cancer will be alive five years later. Early detec-
tion is the key element for survival.
Although oiilv about 1,400 men are diagnosed
with bteast cancer each year, they are just as
likelv to be effected by the disease as women
are. Many men witness the traumatic effects of
this disease as they go through it with their
mothers, aunts, wives and girlfriends. It is
equally important for men to understand the
facts related to breast cancer.
If vou are unsure how to perform a breast self-
exam, ask vour health care provider. You can also

The ECU Men's Soccer team suffered a
disappointing 1-3 loss to the Richmond
Spiders on Sunday at Bunting Field. The
Pirates arc now 1-2 in the CAA and 4-7
overall, a record that stands for the
highest winning percentage the team has
seen in over a decade.
Richmond took the field on Sunday 0-3
in the conference after suffering losses to
CAA opponents William and Mary,
Virginia Commonwealth and American
University. All three are ranked within the
county's top 20 soccer programs. With the
victory, the Spiders improved their record
to 5-4-2 overall and 1-3 in the conference.
Senior goalkeeper Jay Davis said that
although the Pirates didn't walk away with
a win, many positive things can be brought
out of the game.
"We played much better than wc did
on Wednesday against N.C. State Davis
said. "We got off to a slow start, but we

The goal was Vitale's first of the season
and second of his career.
"When they were ahead, wc starred to

chance to turn things around Davis said.
"Wc kept playing hard, but we just
couldn't tic things together. Richmond

Vitale said that too many corner kicks
were given up throughout the game,
something that could have made a big
difference in the game's outcome.
"We made it too easy for them to get
possession Vitale said.
The Pirates have a week to prepare
before taking on Methodist College in a
non-conference battle this Saturday and
conference opponent Old Dominion on
"I feel good about the games Davis
said. "As long as wc keep playing like we
have been, we have a really good shot to
win both games. Even though wc lost the
Richmond game, we have some positive
things that we can pull from it
Vitale agrees that the Old Dominion
game very well may be the second
conference win for the Pirates.
"Old Dominion beat us 1-0 last year,
but this year we are a better team Vitale
said. "We are an older team now because
we are all more experienced than we were
last year, so we can handle the pressure
better. We are better as a unit
With a 4-7 overall record on the season,
the Pirates arc off to their best start ever
in the past decade. Davis said that
positive team attitudes and good defense
have been the keys to making this season
one for the record.
"We picked up some wins early in the
season, which helped build up our
confidence Davis said. "Everyone out
there this year is really positive and works

Will did not decide to attend ECU
until two days before his high school
graduation. However, he did not
waste any time before preparing for
cross country on the college level.
"He made the commitment to
running very early in the summer

Mike Ford. "To go from high school
to college, being a male runner you
increase vou distance from 5,000 to
8,000 meters Ford said. "He
definitely improved his fitness level,
land improved his distance
Will's early success can be
attributed to this off-season training
and a fiercely competitive attitude
"1 Ic runs like a demon Ford said.
"He runs like he is possessed

'Wow, I'm glad I did that' and you

"I've been in the Astrodome and
Carrier Dome and I've coached in
this dome and it is different. It's
really big and open and it's not the
same close feeling that you get in the

it's going to be different. There will

Will's dedication extends beyond
athletics. In high school he was
awarded Georgia's prestigious Hope
Scholarship. He turned it down to
attend ECU. He also participates in
the cross country teams many
community outreach projects.
Will still has goals for this season
that have not yet been reached.
"I'd love for our team to finish
second or third in our conference and
break into the top ten in regionals
However, one goal still looms large
in Will's mind.

BY AMANDA PROCTOR
FEAT! RE WRITER
Paul Baggett spends a lot of time at Pirates' Cove
Underwater Cafe and Bar in downtown Greenville.
But unlike most people in the bar, Baggett does not go
there to drink. He's there to watch others drink and
make sure they don't get out of line. Baggett, a 21-
year-old ECU student, is a bouncer, one of about a
half a dozen who work the bar on a busy night.
He arrives at work around 10 p.m. A line forms at
the door and seating area is full. As men and women
begin shuffling in, already a little tipsy, Paul, about six
feet tall and of medium build checks ID's. He watch-
es as they become rowdy as the night progresses, hop-
ing no one will start a fight. But if they do, he is ready
to handle it, by calming the person down and escort-
ing them out.
Being a bouncer downtown takes patience and
hard work. Fortunately, Underwater does not have a
lot of drunken, unruly customers.
"The crowd that we cater to, is older and not as
disruptive as some of the other bars downtown said
Baggett, who has been a bouncer there for eight
months. Just as a precaution. Underwater has at least
five to six bouncers there Wednesday, Thursday,
Friday and Saturday nights.
It is Wednesday night, karoke night. The more
people drink, the more willing they are to get up and
sing. Most people have had one too many and begin
making fools of themselves. One guy is dancing to a
song and begins to take his shirt off. The bouncers
find this amusing at first, but when he starts to unbut-
ton his pants, he has to be stopped. One of the
bouncers tells him he is not allowed to strip. The
man embarrassed quickly sits down at his table.
"We help each other out when fights break out
Baggett said. "When fights break out, whoever is clos-
est begins to break up the fight, then others follow
If someone is injured during a fight or knocked out,
Baggett, who is trained in CPR, grabs a First Aid kit,
and the bartenders arc ready to dial 911. Bouncers do
not have to be trained in CPR, but it is good to have
someone who is around just in case of an accident.
Bouncers, such as Baggett, are there to keep things
safe and running smoothly. If things get out of hand
they step in.
"We realize the person is drunk, first we calm them
down, then quickly escort them out of the bar before
they cause more trouble Baggett said.
"Sometimes it can be rather amusing to see all of
the people having a good time, but when things get
out of hand, it is time to get serious he said.
As the night winds down, stumbling people leave
the bar, hopefully to catch a cab home; it's cleanup'
time for the bouncers. It takes a good hour and a half
to two hours to clean the bar after a busy night.

On-campus safety is a very
important issue. Many of us hear
over and over the do's and don'ts
of being safe; don't walk alone at

many of us realty pay attention?
Whether coming back from
downtown, going to the library or
off to visit friends, students are
constantly walking on campus

many feel threatened to do so.

He said that students
often forget to lock doors,
not only in their cars, but
in their rooms; students
should not leave valuables
out in the open, and
should even lock their

that students should

Increases in government funding allows for more patrols downtown
lead calls answered
Gabriel no it
Greenville's downtown is a popular
watering hole for many, and when
high spirits are mixed with large
crowds, results are often severe.
Downtown, also referred to as
Target 2 by the city police, runs
from the Tar River to Evans Street
and Reade Circle back up to First
Street. Police have taken particular
interest in this area because of
increasing crime. In fact, funding
has been approved to allow authori-
ties to step up patrols to prevent
situations that in the past were hard
to control due to lack of manpower.
Cheryl Tafoya, crime analyst for
he Greenville Police Department,
offers data on calls made in the
Target 2 area from January to
September of 1997. Among the
more alarming calls listed were 297
alcohol related violations, 90 fights
and 88 larcenies involving vehicles.
"These were service calls only
Tafoya said. "Not all led to an arrest
or issuing of a citation
Assaults are also common and
have been broken down into six cat-
egories, assault on a law enforce-
ment officers being one. Others
include assault with a deadly
weapon and assault inflicting seri-
ous injuries. All totaled, these
offenses account for 60 of the 2,371
calls listed from the downtown area.
Two years ago, the city decided
to tackle these issues head-on and
applied for federal funding offered
through President Bill Clinton's
campaign to place 100,000 new
police officers on America's streets.
On July 15, 1995, the federal gov-
ernment granted a three-year sub-
sidy which will end in July of next
year. At that time the city council
will investigate the success of the
program and vote on whether to
continue its services using city
As soon as the grant came
through, community based units
were deployed and one subunit was
assigned to Greenville's downtown.
"Before, most incidents occurred
during hours officers were not
patrolling in the area said Corporal
Earl Phipps, supervisor of Target 2's
tactical unit. "Today these crr.ii-
nall elements are finding it hard to
operate, thanks to our 24-hour
Phipp's team consists of six offi-
cers, two assigned to the day shift
and four, including a supervisor, at
night. Rounds are conducted day
and night on foot or bicycle.
"This tends to add a personal
touch to our relationship with the
public said Phipps, who is a for-
mer ECU student. "Officers are
easier to approach rather than try-
ing to stand in the middle of the
road flagging down a passing cruis-
Some of the patrol's busier
nights include Halloween,
Homecoming and weekends of
home football games. People come
from all over to partake in
Greenville's rich night life.
Ordinarily, they are students from
outside schools and military person-

group that causes the most prob-
lems. According to Phipps, the
largest of groups can also be the
most behaved. Other times one or
two can set off major problems.
During the two years of the
increased patrols Phipps says he's
seen improvement. "We tactical
officersl hold a vested interest in
the this area, I love coming to work
and think of downtown as my own
backyard Phipps said.

Rescue workers on hand, prepared to
handle emergencies at Dowdy-Ficklen
Hundreds of workers ensure
safety for football fans
On a beautiful fall Saturday afternoon thousands of
Pirate football fans fill the stadium. The band plays
the fight song as the crowd cheers. Such a scenario
happens every Saturday in the fall in college towns
throughout the country. The focus is on the field and
the players. If a player gets injured, help comes swift
and sure. But what happens if a fan gets injured? Or
what about an emergency requiring immediate action?
Three weeks ago at a game in Chapel Hill, an offi-
cial suffered a massive heart attack. Rapid response of
the emcrgcncypcrsonnel probably saved his life.
At Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium, a staff of 200 emer-
gency workers stands by at each football game to
ensure the safety of the fans and officials, according to
Dr. Henry VfcnSant, associate director of athletics.
Many variables, especially when mixed with alco-
hol, contribute to a safety problem. "vanSant said that
things would be safer if people come to the game to
watch rather than to consume alcohol.
"I just don't understand why people would want to
go to a sporting event intoxicated. It's a law not to
have alcoholic beverages at collegiate sporting events
Another variable that can lead to problems is the
weather. It is important to drink plenty of water and
sodas when it is hot to avoid dehydration or heat
Other injuries that require emergency assistance
include bee stings. At home games bee stings are the
most common medical problem. Emergency person-
nel also see their share of twisted ankles.
The university employs three fully-staffed rescue
units at each game. These units are on a rotation and
arc from various rescue squads throughout Pitt County
and the city of Greenville. Their trucks are parked in
the end zone area for easy access in any emergency sit-
uation. In addition to the rescue squads, there is a
fully-staffed nurse's station located under the north
stand near the visitor locker room.
In addition to the numerous personnel on the field
level and in the stands, there is a security coordinator
in the press box who is in constant communication
with the emergency and security staff. The security
coordinator acts as a dispatcher: Also, a video camera is
used to watch the fans throughout the course of the

game. V&nSant said this is a valuable tool in pinpoint-
ing a problem in the mass of 38,000 people.
"It is a never-ending job ensuring the safety of the
fans. Our grounds crew and housekeeping staff does a
remarkable job in making all the grounds safe,
�knSant said that the university employs many out-
side agencies to assist the university staff. An organi-
zation from Raleigh handles all the parking lots.
During the game workers act as security to eliminate
the threats of vandalism and theft of parked cars. One
staff is responsible for ushering and crowd control in
the stands during the game. The NC State Highway
Patrol arrives four hour before game time to discuss
with VinSant the strategy for directing traffic.
They (Highway Patrol) have always done a great
job in controlling the traffic before the games
VanSant said. .
The largest group of safety personnel is ECU
Public Safety. They are stationed in areas surrounding
the stadium. They are assisted by some off-duty
Greenville police officers to maintain order and gener-
al safety during the game.
VanSant stresses that alcohol is the root of most
potentially threatening situations. "I urge the fans to
be responsible. Make going to a Pirate football game a
�;reat experience for you and the fans around you. Use
common sense and good judgment VanSant said.

At 9:30 p.m walking alone from
Joyner Library the student clutch-
es the straps of the book bag and
hurries back to the safety of the
residence hall. Students, both
men and women, out alone at
night are wary. No one wants to be
a victim- especially a victim of
sexual assault. Sexual assault does-
n't discriminate against gender,
race or age. If it happens at ECU,
where do you turn?
Sexual assault goes unreported
every day according to Heather
Zophy, Student Health Educator.
Sexual assault is an unwarranted
advance that makes the person
"Sexual assault is a form of ter-
rorism for the victim, they might
not use lethal weapons, but the
beating around and the mental
anguish is enough said Jolene
Jernigan, RNC FNP Nursing
Supervisor at Student Health
Each year ECU publishes a set
of sexual assault policies and pro-
cedures in the Campus Security
and Safety brochure and in the
"There is a law that we have to
have this information posted for
students to know (the policies)
said Dr. Martha Wisbey, dean of
These policies arc intended to
make students aware of this issue
and to make people aware of the
University Disciplinary Procedure,
which is applicable in instances of
alleged sexual assault.
This policy defines sexual
assault as any attempted or
actual sexual activity that is
unwanted or unconscntual includ-
ing oral or anal penetration, sexual
touching, fondling, rape and other-
sexualfy related acts
Other services this provides
include a list of things for one to do
when sexually assaulted and the
victim's Bill of Rights.
The victims who come into
Student Health Services have the
option of repotting the assault to
the ECU Police Department or do
an anonymous report.
"The anonymous report
excludes names but is sent to the
ECU Police Department and the
Vice Chancellor of Student Life so
they can look for trends Zophy
Jernigan believes that students
should face the reality of the sexu-
al assault if they are a victim.
"Don't hide from the assault
because it doesn't go away; lay it
on the table, find someone you are
close to and share it. All relation-
ships are based on trust and if you
can't share your story (of assault),
it makes it hard to trust Jernigan
The staff at Student Health
Services tries to provide a safe and
comforting environment that is
compassionate and understanding.
Student Health Services Nurse
Holli Williams stresses that the
staff offers a supportive environ-
"We are here for students in cri-
sis and everything is confidential.
We are here for support and not to
judge the victim Williams said.
Jernigan and Williams agree
that students should know that
sexual assault can happen. Always
be aware of your surroundings and
don't be afraid to get help when
you need it.
Student Health Services offers
suppon, STD screening (exclud-
ing HIV testing), emergency con-
traception, counseling and access
to rape kits.
In addition to Student Health
Services, the Center for
Counseling and Student
Development has staff members
on call after hours and may be
accessed through a resident coor-
dinator, support groups for people
who have been sexually assaulted
and individual counseling.
Student Development, a divi-
sion of Student Life, has a Student
Life Sexual Assault Coordinating
Committee which last year worked
on policies and procedures for the
"They also worked on protocols
like the concept of an advocate
program so that there would be
trained staff members available to
help students Wisbey said.
There is also an Education
Committee which plans program
outreach. According to Wisbey this
group works with event planning
for Sexual Assault awareness Week
and programs encouraging aware-
ness for students Wisbey said.
Both committees are com-
prised of student and faculty
members. There will be a table
outside of the Wright Place today
