Sal DeMarco has won one battle,
but the war is yet to be over.
Since last July, DeMarco, a
speech pathology professor in the
School of Allied Health Sciences,
has been engaged in a series of fac-
ulty-adjudicated due process com-
mittee hearings to help determine
if he should be terminated from his
tenured employment with ECU.
DeMarco had been charged with
conduct violations including shout-
ing obscenities at other faculty,
physically assaulting Dr. Richard
Shine at a staff meeting, failing to
fulfill his clinical duties and engag-
ing in unprofessional conduct.
The committee, whose recom-
mendations have gone to
Chancellor Richard Eakin for a final
decision on the case, was made up
of six ECU faculty members elect-
ed to those positions by their col-
leagues. The members decided in
favor of DeMarco on all four of the
specifications set before them.
"Even if I did this stuff, what did
the adminis-
tration do to
correct the
problem �
nothing
DeMarco
said. "They
testified they
did nothing,
and the rea-
son they did
nothing was
because it
wasn't true

of the hearings reported: "The
committee finds there is no evi-

ly engaged in a
course of unpro-

duct However
Dr. Harold Jones,
dean of the
School of Health
and Allied
Sciences,
believes that the
faculty in the
department are
upset that
DeMarco was given a favorable rec-
ommendation.
"I would characterize the depart-
ment's response as disappointed, "
Jones said. "But we believe there is
a real chance the Chancellor might
rule differently
Eakin was given the commit-
tee's review on March 6, and has 30
days to hand down his final deci-
sion.
Among the grievances that
DeMarco held against the universi-
ty were allegations of anonymous
letters placed in his file (which is
against regulations), that he was sin-
gled out for punishment for doing
things other faculty members did
(like use obscenities in staff meet-
ings) and that he was prevented
from treating his patients, to the
detriment of both he and those

Founder's Day inaugural event recognizes
university employees with service awards
New tradition begins
with 91st birthday
Amanda Austin
news editor
In accordance with ECU's 91st
birthday celebration Monday many
activities took place throughout the
day. Activities included ice sculp-
ture carvings, the dedication of two
interactive rooms in the Joyner
Library to former U.S. Senators, as
well as a ceremony where recipi-
ents of Founder's Day Service
Awards were announced.
The Founder's Day Service
Awards are a new tradition in which
faculty are present wearing their
full graduation regalia. Three uni-
versity employees were recognized
at this prestigious ceremony.
The recipients of the Founder's
Day Service Awards were Freda
Pollard, a computer information
systems manager; Fred Irons, for-
mer director of Student Health and
Medical School faculty member;
and Doug Caldwell, superinten-
dent for building and grounds.
"This was the
inaugural event;
we plan to give
them out every
year said
Chancellor
Richard Eakin.
The awards
are given to rec-
ognize those peo-
ple who exhibit
outstanding ser-
vice to the univer-
sity.

serve; we should indeed recognize
those who serve
According to Pollard, she felt
honored to receive such an honor
from the university. She feels that
she was chosen as a result of her
staff.
"(The award was a result of) the
wonderful team of people I have
working for me Pollard said. "I
have 10 people who report to me
and they make me look so
good
Irons also felt honored
that he was one of three
who had received the
award.
"It made me realize
how important it is to be
associated with such fine
people for 51 years Irons
said.
The recepients of the
Founder's Day Award were
selected by a committee
specifically for this pur-
pose.
Founder's Day events
also included ice sculpture
carvings by art students in front of
Mendenhall Student Center.

Police offer Vacation Home Check to students and city residents
Program designed to
prevent burglaries
Jenny Vickers
STAFF WRITER
Due to recent off campus break-ins,
many students are concerned about
leaving behind an empty house
during their spring break vacation.
Greenville Police Department's
Vacation Home Check is a program
available for any student or resident
of Greenville.
The program is designed to pre-
vent burglary or other related
crimes from occuring to someone's
home while they are away on vaca-
tion.

The police
are given a
checklist and
check the house
at least once a
day. The offi-
cers walk
around the house, check the resi-
dence and make sure everything is
locked up.
"Police need to know if certain
lights are going to be left on or a

to expect Bartlett said. "They

make sure that everything is the
same and everything is secure
Students can call a dispatch and
leave their name, address and a
location where an emergency con-
tact with an extra set of keys can be
reached.
A lot of people in the commu-
nity use the program especially on
holidays or even if they are going
away for the weekend.
"This program gives a sense of
security while you're away
Bartlett said. "You should also tell
a neighbor to look out for anything
suspicious
In addition to having police
watch your house, Bartlett recom-
mends anyone leaving town to
practice some basic preventative
tips.
"Always have newspapers
stopped, lights on a timer, have a
neighbor check mail, secure all
locks, leave a radio on and put a
towel or a broom stick in locked
sliding glass doors Bartlett said.
Bartlett believes that the more
preventative measures, the better.
"A lot of people close all of the
blinds and shutters, so that during
the day, the house looks unoccu-
pied Bartlett said. "If you ordi-
narily would have a blind open,
then leave at least one or two open.
Of course, make sure that these
windows do not reveal too much
inside your home
The police department has a
motto: The criminal always takes
the path of least resistance.
"Recent break-ins have been in
the back yard Bartlett said.
"Students should leave a back
porch light on if they have one.
The harder you make it for them
the better
Some communities also have a
neighborhood watch group they can
notify. If students arc concerned,
they can call the Police
Department Communications
Center at 830-430.

DeMarco was suspended with
pay in April of last year, and was
denied the right to sec his patients,
many of them children, and to givi
his students their final exam � this
meant that they had to accept the
grade they had earned in the class
thus far. DeMarco said he believes
that these were the practices of an
administration that is more interest-
ed in having its way than respecting
the rights of students and patients.
"These are issues of the heart�

But Dr. Richard Shine, whom
DeMarco allegedly pushed, thinks
that DeMarco is interested in any-
thing but kindness and compas-
sion.
"I disagree with the decisions
and recommendations of die com-
mittee and it remains my opinion
that DcMarco's shoving incident
does represent misconduct as well
as some other behaviors Shine
said.
Jones too says he is unhappy
that the committee did not return a
more university favorable recom-
mendation, and believes that the
reputation of the department has
suffered in the light of a media cir-
cus that he says caters only to
DcMarco's reports of the disputes.
"I feel badly for this depart-
ment Jones said. "There is a por-
trayal of a department that is adrift
or deserting their mission to this
region or this area. It's very demor-
alizing to the faculty
Despite the opinions of anyone
involved, the ultimate decision is
up to Eakin. If he decides to ter-
minate DeMarco's position,
DeMarco can appeal to the univer-
sity board of trustees, and then fur-
ther to the Board of Governors of
the University of North Carolina
system. DeMarco says that if these
outlets do not produce satisfactory
results than he will continue the
process by privately suinthe
University.
Since it was Eakin who brought
the charges against DeMarco, and
because it is now he who is the
final decision maker on the sub-
ject, both DeMarco and Jones say
they do not know for certain what
the Chancellor will decide.
"Probably if you do any kind of
study across the country, 90 per-
cent of all faculty dismissals occur
despite the recommendation of the
faculty due process committee,
Jones said. "We are counseling the
department just to sit back and let
the chancellor do his job
According to DeMarco, if he is
given the word to return to his posi-
tion, he will consult with both
Jones and Eakin to create a better
working relationship.
"I extend my hand out
DeMarco said. "Let's get down to
the business of curing the ills that
plague this university. I don't
think what's happened to me is
unique to me; I hope this is a
springboard to look at what we
have going on here

Q
A rape was reported recently in Cotten. If your daughter were living in
the dorms would you feel comfortable with her safety?
I would feel safe having my daughter living in the dorms. At;
the same time I can't urge students, male and female, and faculty;
and staff to be vigilant in taking safety measures. They should not;
be letting anyone else in those residence halls I can't say that too-
many times or too forcefully.
After UNC-CH recently followed Western Carolina's lead, how seri-
ousfy is the university considering requiring students to own personal com
putersP
We had a conference last Friday (Fcb 27) on technologyWe;
talked about the use of technology in the classroom It became;
clear to DERT (Distributive Education Response Team), who we;
fondly refer to as dirt, that the first issue was incorporating tech
nolpgy into the classroom on campusThere is a second issue that;
comes first. Will we provide an educational environment at ECU;
such that there is a reasonable use for computers in the classroom?;
After we answer that then we can think about requiring them. I;
think students should be very upset if we tell them they have to;
buy computers and they get here and there is not a reasonable-
application on campusIt's not something you do as a kneejerk;
reaction1-
Is there a spring break that stands out in your memory from your
undergraduate years f �
I was such a boring undergraduate. I never went anywhere spe
cial on spring break. I went home and often would use the time to-
catch up on my studies. I was a very serious student. I had friends;
who would go off to Florida every year. One of my friends had a;
VW Bug and offered me a ride all the way to Florida in the back
seat, but at 6'5 I decided it was not ray cup of tea! so I declined.1
(����������(����(������(����.���(��tea. , ������������������ �
What aspects of technology in use at the university are you most enthu-
siastic about going into the 21 st century?
I think the personal computer will become part of everyone's;
life in the not too distant future. I think, Amy, that if we were sit
ting here 20 years from now we would be somewhat amused that;
we ever questioned the role personal computers would playl;
guess the whole notion of what education really is is going to be;
fun to see 10 - 20 years from nowThe notion of territory is going;
to vanish. That is the idea of ECU or WCU will change with peo-j
pie going on-line to take courses. Even with these advances I do-
think students will still want to come to campus becasue they will-
want interaction. �

be a better facility if we just built it
from scratch
Wilcox said that further addi-
tions to the new facility might be
incorporated to make 16 theaters,
depending on the business.
Kyle Carpenter, superintendent
of Soloff Builders, a construction
company hired by Carmike
Theaters Inc said that business
would be great due to location.
"Fire Tower Road is a great loca-
tion because of all the development
going on Carpenter said. Also,
with it being 10 minutes from cam-
pus, college students will be more
likely to go
According to Carpenter, the the-
ater will have top of the line facili-
ties. Besides being a 12 plex, it will
have stadium styled seating in four
of the houses and all of the theaters
will have surround stereo sound;
there will be four concession areas,
6 restrooms (3 men and 3 women)
and a small arcade area.

"Usually theaters do not have
that (arcade) facility, but the
Carmike 12 will Carpenter said.
'When asked whether the new
theater would affect "
the business of the the-
aters that are open now,
Carpenter said that he
didn't think so.
"The Carmike 12
will encourage more
people to go to movies
and bring more people
in from surrounding
areas Carpenter said.
But' the employees
at the other theaters
have more conflicting
feelings.
An employee at the Buccaneer
Theater said that the new 12-plex
could have both positive and nega-
tive effects.
"I think that it could go either
way she said. "We could lose
business due to the variety that the
(Carmike 12) will bring. But at the
same time there's a chance that
tickets could be expensive, which
will mean no change in business for
us
The assistant manager of
Carolina East Cinemas shares the
same feelings as Carpenter.
"We're actually looking forward
xa the opening of the Carmike 12
she said. "I don't
think it will hurt
business much.
There has been talk
that with the open-
ing of the new 12-
plex, one of the the-
aters will close
down anyway, so
who knows
Cinema man-
agers and Carmike
Inc. aren't the only
ones excited about
� the opening of the
Carmike 12. ECU students are
thrilled with the thought of a new
theater.
"I think it will be great because
the theater will be able to accom-
modate more people and there will
be a bigger selection of movies
student Angela Lee said.
"I think it will be great to have a
12-plex theater in Greenville
Doralissa Griffin said. "I just hope
that ticket prices won't be too
expensive
"Building this new
theater is a great
marketing decision

This is the picture: you want to go to the movies. Your choice of theaters is limited; you
have to choose between the slapstick comedies that show at the Buccaneer, the run-of-the-
mill blockbuster Hollywood flicks that play at the Carolina East Mall or the Plaza, or last
year's hits down at the buck-fifty theater on Fifth Street.
Barring any of that, there's always the free movies at Mendenhall or perhaps the good old
video rental from one of the local video stores.
With any of these (except, perhaps the video rental) you have to deal with washed-out
sound, funny creaky seats, fuzzy; blurry pictures and tiny tiny screens.
So it's certainly a relief that there's a new 12-screen theater being built in Greenville. We
can say goodbye to the poor sound and picture quality (hopefully) and perhaps look forward
to surround sound technology that dates later than 1979, all of which is a big relief.
However, since the same company that owns all of the other theaters in Greenville is
responsible for this latest project, we're somewhat worried that this new theater won't offer
any more variety in movie genre than the theaters that already exist. Though they do make
money, some folks just don't want to see predictable slapstick comedies. How many folks
out there'are sick and tired of sex-and-guns testosterone adventure movies?
It gets frustrating when, in.order to see any film of quality, one must drive to Raleigh.
Pulp Fiction, for example, didn't show in Greenville until way, way after it had already done
considerable time in the theaters in Raleigh.
There are quite a few ECU students who drive to Raleigh either to see films that won't
show in Greenville theaters or to see films in theaters with good quality picture and sound.
The Greenville theaters, for example, did not have the technology to play the revised Star
Wars films in THX sound. There was, last winter, a veritable diaspora of ECU students to
Raleigh, just to see Star Wars.
Students who want to see good dramas and more artistic films are willing to drive to
Raleigh, which means they're willing to pay not only for a ticket, but for gas and food used
on that trip. That's money that could be spent in the concession stands in local theaters.
In the hoopla of the new theater, we at The East Carolinian hope that.not only will better
picture and sound be made available, but that there will be a more diverse selection of
movies. We hope that we can soon quit driving two hours to Raleigh and instead spend our
time and money right here in Greenville.

What was she thinking:
?
Education isn 't all
academic. Part of it is
learning how to be an adult.
Unless you 're planning on
moving back home with the
folks, or directly into a
retirement home, we all need
the experience of living on
our own.
Not once since I moved out of the
dorms do I recall longing for
cafeteria food. And never had I
nostalgic wishes to be back in the
community shower wearing shoes
where people should be naked and
ankle- deep in the pool created by
the clogged drain filled with who-
knows -what of who-knows-who's. I
haven't missed sharing a tiny room
or sleeping in a minuscule bed or
trying to cram my entire wardrobe
into three drawers the size of my
head. I don't regret leaving the
forty other people who shared my
bathroom; not even the ones who
enjoyed staying up too late, playing
music too loud, and slamming their
doors too frequently.
No, I have been quite happy
here in my apartment. The
refrigerator downstairs contains
food that I enjoy eating. I know
who the last person was who drank
out of the glasses in the cabinet.
I have a pretty clear indication of
who the hair in the bathtub belongs
to, and I get to leave my soap and
shampoo right there in the shower.
My large bed comfortably
accommodates me, and sometimes
a guest, which is not against the
rules here. I can walk around in my
room butt- naked and no one will
be offended (unless I leave the
blinds open).
My clothes have room to
breathe in the closet and my shoes
line the floor in a happy mess. I
even have a couple of fluffy, fur-
covered roommates (Bo and Oliver
� they were dying to get their
names in the paper) to share the
happiness with.
The only downfall to this
otherwise pleasant experience is
the need to pay rent. This need has
forced me to get off of the couch
(which is in my spacious living
room) and secure a job. This I
managed successfully, and with
little parking frustration, as I always
have a space directly in front of my
door. .
My experience with dorm life
was not a bad one. However, the
freedom of an apartment far
outweighs the advantages of not
having to cook and clean, no matter
what those housing ads may say.
People who are mature enough to
take care of themselves belong in
apartments. This is going to come
as a shock, but after graduation,
there will be no cafeteria. The
housekeeping service will not come
to your bathroom every day to clean
it. Eventually, we all have to learn
to change the toilet paper rolls
ourselves, and we Decome good
friends with guys like Mr. Clean
and those scrubbing bubbles.
Prolong your dorm stay as long
as you will, but it's going to end.
Why not go ahead and learn to
make your own Hamburger Helper
now, while your mom won't mike
fun of you for calling and asking
how to turn on the stove? College
graduates are expected to know
things, like how to pay a utility bill.
Education isn't all academic. Part of
it is learning how to be an adult.
Unless you're planning on moving
back home with the folks, or
directly into a retirement home, we
all need the experience of living on
our own.
So don't let those campus
housing ads brainwash you. If you
can get an apartment, go for it. After
all, isn't it nice to be the only person
in the bathroom when you gotta go?
If someone hasn 't been
wronged or taken advantage
of then they might as well not
exist. This is definitely not
an excuse to be dishonest,
but it does provide some
insight into why people do
indeed lie.
Last Friday, the student who
alleged she was attacked in the
woods near Jones Hall retracted her
claim. I know I am not the first
person to exclaim, "What was she
thinking? Since Christmas break,
numerous break-ins, larcenies and
assaults have occurred.
Meanwhile, the police are
apprehending an attacker who does
not even exist.
What would motivate some
random young lady to lie about
such a serious situation? Attention.
This attention-seeking mentality
drives many aspects of our society
and is epitomized by this girl's false
claim of rape. It seems our
attention is only captured by
controversy, scandal, or any
situation with spme amount of a
negative connotation and � what is
worse � we feed off of it. So,
people lie in order to achieve a tad
bit of fame, attention, excitement,
or whatever gets them through the
night.
This mentality is evident in
places besides ECU of course.
Which would you say has a larger
viewing audience � Jerry Springer
(at 1 a.m. no less) or The Discovery
Channel? I don't think there is
much of a competition. People just
love shows like Jerry Springer no
matter how trashy and violent they
get because of the action and
controversy.
Another motivation for the false
rape charge could be this
phenomenon of our society making
victimization an . everyday
normality. If someone hasn't been
wronged or taken advantage of
then they might as well not exist.
This is definitely, not an excuse to
be dishonest, but it does provide
some insight into why people do
indeed lie (and why people actually
go on Jerry Springer). Regardless if
Monica Lewinsky lied or not,
would it be correct to assume she
and people like her find it very
difficult not to make accusations
about high ranking officials
knowing the public will embrace
them (at first) because they have
been victimized? That would be a
very safe ,if not accurate
assumption.
I am not saying that it is wrong
to report a crime or announce
victimization, but if taken to an
extreme our reactions will
encourage a plethora of false
accusations and exaggerations.
This is dangerous for many obvious
reasons but especially because after
a while, we will turn an apathetic
head toward the - true victims of
crime and oppression.
LETTER
to the Editor
SGA handling VP vacancy badly
I am very displeased with the way
SGA is handling the vacancy of the
vice president's office. The SGA
Constitution mandates that an
election be held within three weeks
of the vacancy of the position. Six
weeks after Sean McManus's
resignation, we are having an
election because the Constitution
requires that we do so.
Constitutions are designed to
establish guidelines to which we
must adhere. The executive
council maintains that this election
must occur because the
Constitution requires it. The
Constitution also requires that the
election occur within three weeks,
but that part has not been followed.
Who are our "leaders" to pick and
choose which parts of the
Constitution to uphold and which
to ignore? Do they deem
themselves of such high authority
as to assume with arrogance that
they know better than the creators
of the Constituion what is worthy of
adherence and what is not?
This election, according toTEC,
is costing students $1,300. I agree
that the Constitution needs to be
followed, but let's be consistent
And if it needs to be changed, let's
do so. We need to prevent this
absurd waste of money from
happening again. We should follow
the advice of Adam Hofheimer
(SGA speaker) who recommended
that we amend the Constitution to
prevent this situation from ever
again rearing its ugly head. The
purpose of amendments is to
correct the imperfections in
constitutions. Amending the
Constitution is very difficult, as
well it should be, but is not
impossible. Students have a
responsibility to vote for needed
changes (unless, of course, $1300
doesn't sound like much to you).
Do your part to make the Think
5000 campaign initiated by
Jonathan Huggins (senior class
pres.) become a reality by voting in
the upcoming elections.
By the way, I am appalled by the
audacity of the three vice
presidential candidates who are
willing to waste our money so they
can hold office for two weeks and
receive compensation that will far
exceed the benefits students will
receive from their service. If they
withdraw, as Eric Rivenbark
(graduate class pres) so graciously
did, there will be no election and
therefore no money lost.

LETTER
to the Editor
Vote for Joe; he kneads the dough
LETTER
I think it would be a good idea to
remind students to vote in the
upcoming elections on the Tuesday
after spring break.
ECU is not famous for its
massive voter turnout in these type
of elections and I think that is a
shame. I also think it is a shame that
only three people nominated
themselves to run in this very
important election. Considering
that the winner will receive $225 in
cash and $200 for books (pius the
means to exaggerate on their
resume) and will only have to serve
the office for two weeks, I am
surprised AND flabbergasted,
mind you, that only three students
would show enough
entrepreneurial experience to seize
such an obvious opportunity for
blatant self-promotion and cold
hard cash. Where in sam hill is that
old American spirit that drives so
many American great leaders to
conquer one intern after the other
while bakancing the interests of the
American citizens with that of his
personal friends overseas? Who was
it who said, "If I have seen more
profits than some, it is because I
have stood on the neckjs of
clients"?
My point is this: either Cliff
Webster, Marcus Fredrick or Joe
Phillips will bank close to 500
noodles and it will have just been
too damned easy! All they had to do
was sign up last week!
I'm Joe Phillips and although I
don't know much about politics, I
sure could use the cash! It's not my
fault we had to hold this election,
but by George, if someone's
handing out greenbacks, I'm there.
So, Mr. Editor, Editors note: That's
Ms. Editor please encourage
everyone to stop by a polling station
on Tuesday after the break, It's so
important and it will only take a
minute and if I'm elected, I will
spend my two weeks in office
trying to acquire parking permits
for the SGA so we can keep them
on the roll while they serve the
student body. Speaking of student
bodies, if elected, I might need an
intern to "help around the office
So in keeping with recent tradition,
please VOTE FOR JOE � HE
KNEADS THE DOUGH.

Candidate
Check it before you call it a fact
I am writing to voice my concerns
and opinions about "Student
arrested for filing false report
alleging assault near Jones First I
would like to commend Amanda
Austin for writing the article; it was
good news and well-written, but
she failed to include a retraction
statement, which could have
mended some of the damage
instead of perpetuating more racial
divide.
That retraction is for a statement
that was written by senior writer
Craig D. Ramey in the March 3
issue of TEC, in which he wrote
that a female student was assaulted
on campus by a black man on Feb.
23 at about 6:55 p.m. First of all, he
should have said alleged assault;
then he goes on to say that the
victim was a black man. I am sure
that was typo that got past the
editor, but my point is why did he
have to mention the alleged
assailant's color? All that does is
continue to add to and feed the
stereotype that people of color are
violent and should not be trusted.
Now I can understand why Ms.
Olson, the alleged victim, would
blame it on a black man � that's
because it's easy to do (when in
douby, blame it on a black man).
Now I coulfhave made this
letter sound racial and bitter
because of the act committed by
Olson, but there is no need for that
since she is going through a crisis
that she caused herself. It is also
obvious that she has some kind of
problem � be it mental or social
� and she needs some kind Of
help.
My main point is that Ramey
was allowed to publish something
that did not help the situation on
campus caused by the alleged rape
weeks before. Well, I'll end with a
job well done by ECU police.

The second-annual cultural arts
workshop, sponsored in part by
ECU's A.R.I.S.E. program and the
Spinal Cord Injury Association of
Eastern NC, was held
Saturday in Minges
Coliseum and attended
by about 50 people,
including volunteers
and participants' family
members.
According to Terri
Edwards, program
assistant for A.R.I.S.E
the workshop was "an
event for individuals
with physical and
sensory disabilities

artistic pursuits to

were led by teachers

participants.
"What a person did

said Ron Krull, president of SCIA,
who hoped that the cultural arts
workshop could help "teach people
that there's a lot they can do after a.

The morning's activities
included an adapted music session
led by English professor Mike
Hanicr. who distributed harmonicas
to the participants and encouraged
them to use their own abilities to
play instruments in ways they
might not have previously
considered.
Hamer also taught a writing
workshop. His goal was for
physically challenged individuals to
find outlets of expression through
creative and journal-style writing.
A clay workshop was also offered
for those who preferred to get their
hands messy and have a good time
learning about pottery.
Dr. Boni Boswell of the Exercise

an adapted dance activity in which
individuals in wheelchairs or on

SENIOR WRITER
Originally, this space was
going to be devoted to a
review of The BigLebowsH, the
latest film from Fargo creators,
the Coen brothers. What was I
thinking? Lebowski, like all the
Coen brothers' work, is a
small, quirky, independent
film. And small, quirky,
independent films, even those
made by Oscar winners like the
Coens, don't play in Greenville.
How silly of me to think otherwise.
Now, normally, I'd counter the
absence of Lebowski in theaters
with a review of some other quality
film recently released on video.
But the wisdom of Greenville's
theater owners has shown me the
light. You, the people of
Greenville, don't care about good
movies. You just want the slap and
tickle of something dumb.
Well, dumb we got. There's so
much dumb out there, in fact, that
I was hard-pressed to choose a
single dumb video to review here.
My first thought was to cover the
wonderful world of pornography. I
mean, there's nothing dumber than
that, right? But one trip to the
adults-only video room revealed
my error. Upon stepping through
the door, I was assaulted by a
dizzying array of naughty orifices
screaming out at me from the shelf,
procreative fluids dripping from
every possible body part.
That in and of itself wasn't so
bad, but I swiftly realized that we
couldn't print very many of the
titles. Alongside the movie
parodies, such as Edward
Creeps. Nothing beats dwarf exploitation.
PHOTO COURTESY OF FULL MOON PICTURES
Penishands and Forrest Hump
("Horny is as horny does"), sits tape
after tape with names that would
make sailors blush. The dumbest
titles are those in what I like to call
the "Girls Who" series: Girls Who
Swallow, Girls Who Take It Up the Ass,
etc. And those are the clean ones!
They just get worse from there, you
see, and so pomo is out.
Stalking the video aisles in
search of stupid, I was
overwhelmed by the sheer number
of dumb movies out there that just
go straight to video. Every possible
genre is available at cheap rental
prices. If the producers of these
films only knew about Greenville
theaters, they could make a killing
on the big screen!
If you want to see some skin, but
lack the strong stomach required
for real porn, there's always
"mature" videos to peruse. These
mostly star former Playboy or
Penthouse centerfolds, and feature
better lighting than real porno (if
not as many extreme close-ups of
genitalia). The entire Story of 0
television series is available, along
with scads of pseudo-classy
instructional tapes on every
conceivable sex act (the ones that
won't get you arrested, anyway).
And if action's your bag, there's
big fun to be had with low-budget
bullets-and-screaming-tires flicks
featuring your favorite stars of
yesteryear. Guys like Battlestar
Galactica's Dirk Benedict or Miami
Vice's Phillip Michael Thomas have
whole new careers in dumb
straight-to-video
action. Hell,
even Judge
f r e a k i n '
Reinhold has a
video action
movie out right
now. If you were
ever remotely
famous, the
sky's the limit!
Erotic thrillers
are also big in
the dumb video
market. That's
"Erotic
meaning that
there's some
kind of weird
sex going on,
and "Thriller
meaning that
somebody gets a
knife in the
spleen before
it's all over with.
Mickey Rourke
is a one-man
industry in these
things, kind of
like Steve
Guttcnburg is
with dumb
comedy.
But the big
winner in the dumb video
sweepstakes is undoubtedly horror.
With the decline of the American
drive-in theater, horror movies were
in big trouble. Where would our
next generation of fear-meisters
come from without the drive-in to
give their tales of violent misogyny
a home? Thankfully, the straight-
to-video market rode to the rescue
and now we can enjoy all the blood-
soaked coeds we could ever want.
Whew!
In fact, the dumb movie I finally
chose as my subject for this review
is a horror movie. It's called Creeps,
and it comes from the fine folks at
Full Moon Entertainment, a leader ,
in the field of dumb horror video.

A&E "brings Northern Exposure back to life

Let syndication take

John Davis
ASSISTANT LIFESTYLE EDITOR
I never thought I'd be one of
"those people You know the sort
to which I refer: they have to rush
home every day at a certain hour in
order to catch "their show Usually
this show is a smarmy, shallow soap
opera or a mind-numbing, trashy
talk show.
Even so, I've always had a very
low opinion of those folk who
centered their daily lives around
something as trivial as a television
show. I mean come on, get a life
already.
Then I got bit by the Cecily
bug. Sometime late last semester
the cable channel A&E started
showing reruns of the early '90s
series Northern Exposure at noon
and 6 p.m. I didn't even really
know or care too much about the
show. Sure, I'd seen it a couple of
times and I remember halfway
liking it, but to be honest the
series originally aired when I
didn't own a television (ahhh, the
dorm days).
So it wasn't until one of my
roommates burst ecstatically into
my room, interrupting me from my
homework, to make me watch the
show with him last autumn. From
that moment on, I became a
Northern Exposure junkie,
scrambling home every day at
either noon or six to sit down in
front of the telly and soak Cecily,
Alaska in.
For those of you not in the know.
Northern Exposure originally aired
from 1990 to 1995. It was at first a
"replacement series basically
slotted to fill empty network space,
and much to the surprise of CBS, it
became an instant hit.
The series centered around the
life of one Dr. Joel Flcischman
(played by Rob Morrow), who had
been tricked into a contract that

required him to practice medicine
in the small Alaskan town of Cecily
for four years.
Over the course of the series,
Flieschman befriends the natives of
the very unusual town. He has an
on and off again romance with the
town's courier-pilot, Maggie
O'Connell (Janine Turner). The
two either fight bitterly or gaze into
each other's eyes.
Though most of the action in the
show (especially early on) centers
around the
FleischmanO'Connell
relationship, the show
gradually began to
encompass the lives of
several . Cecily
residents: Holling, on
old trapper turned
bartender and his
girlfriend Shelly, a
runaway beauty contest
winner; Maurice, a
tragic but endearing ex-
astronaut; Chris, a
colorful ex-con and the
town's local
deejaypriestartist; Ed,
a gentle shaman in
training and aspiring
filmmaker; Ruth-Ann,
the local store owner;
and Marilyn, Joel's
quiet secretary.
Northern Exposure was
not a normal drama.
Unlike your average
night time network
drama. Northern
Exposure focused on
spiritual and psychological, as well
as the regular temporal concerns of
the characters. A large part of the
character development occurred
internally, and it was not
uncommon for mystic aspects of
Native Americans, Sigmund Freud,
Christianity and Buddhism to
figure strongly in the plots.
For example, one of the classic
episodes involved Chris building a
performance art sculpture that was
designed to catapult a cow.
Meanwhile, Maggie's house burns
down, and the rest of the town
seems to be experiencing an
uncommon amount of stress. Chris
learns from Ed that Monty Python
have already flung a cow in their
movie Monty Python and the Holy
Grail, which sends him into despair.
The conflict is resolved
brilliantly when Chris finds an old
piano in the ruin of Maggie's house
and flings it instead, thus relieving
the stress accrued by the town and
bringing meaning to Maggie's
tragedy.
Pretty much every episode is
like this: filled with beautifully
crafted characters and a believable
local mythology that is almost
tangible. Rather than being
predictable, Hollywood-type
characters, these characters arc very
human. After just a few episodes,
the characters seem to take on the
dimensionality of real people.
Northern Exposure is a very literary
series, which, in these days, is an
oddity.
It is a drama written for thinking
people, for folks who are tired of
watching the same old Melrose Party
or 90210 shows. Thankfully, A&E
has seen fit to give the series yet
another run, as they have recently
restarted the series again last week.

The East Carolinian
Pirate golfer strives for higher goals
Robinson looks to
become one of ECUs
most valuable players
Mario scherhaifer
STAFF WRITER
Shane Robinson always wanted to
become a professional golfer. One
step was made toward his
ultimate goal last weekend.
Robinson, a native of
Norwood, N.C played his best
tournament for ECU since he got
recruited from South Stanley
High School two years ago.
"I recruited him when he
qualified for the U.S. Junior
Championship Head Coach
Kevin Williams said.
Williams calls Robinson a hard
worker and a responsible young
man. "He goes the extra mile
without having him asked for it
Williams said. "He's the type of
player who accepts a challenge
and that's why he's on the team
Robinson came off last
weekend's Ben HoganFripp
Island Collegiate posting a 72-73-
71 score, finishing three over par
and tying for a 12th place finish.

last month and a half, and I played

really smart last weekend at Fripp
Island Robinson said. "I hope
and plan to continue my good
game and I don't see anything
that could change that
According to Williams
Robinson brought a lot of
confidence into his game this
year, which made him strike the
ball so well.
"When his putting
performance reaches the rest of
his game, he will get really close
to his potential Williams said.
"I'm going to have two-and-a-half
years left with him and I'm sure
that he will stay in the game for a
long time; maybe even after his
college career
Robinson will play in the next
three tournaments and hopes to
become one of ECU's top players.
According to Williams, Robinson
has to go back to quaking if he
does not play to his potential at all
three tournaments.
Robinson is aware of his major
weakness; .right now � the
putting. But he is also optimistic
that with the help of Williams, he
can solve the
problem.
"He is a great
coach Robinson
said. "I had"him four
semesters as my
coach. Now he's my
teacher, too. I really
appreciate his work
with me
Majoring in
business, Robinson
plans on working
with a golf company
after college. But his
plans also include
trying to play
professional golf.
Robinson spent
last summer playing
in several amateur
tournaments
including the North
Carolina Amateur,
the Carolinas
Amateur, the North
Carolina Open and
the U.S. Amateur
Qualifier.
"I would love to
play professional
golf Robinson said.
Robinson's pext step to
making it to the pro-tour will be to
turn in another good performance
at the UNC-Charlotte Invitational
this weekend.
Sophomore Shane Robinson is expected to step up this
spring as a team leader for the Pirates.

TEC reports results from
sports movie survey
STEVE LOSEY
ASSISTANT SPORTS F:f)ITOR
Not many can forget a bruised and battered Sylvester Stallon,
surrounded by the mob crammed in the boxing ring, calling, "Adrian
in the final scene of Rocky.
Anyone who was anywhere near a movie theater last year
remembered "Show me the money (mm Jerry Maguire.
And no one who saw Happy Gilmore could possibly hear "The price
is wrong, bitch without bursting into laughter.
At least, nobody at ECU. In February, the sports section of TEC
conducted a survey to find out what sports movies are being watched
by ECU's students. The undisputed champion was, to no great
surprise, Rocty.
In 1976, Rocky was released to both critical and commercial acclaim.
Making $150 million, it was successful enough to inspire four sequels
over fourteen more years. At the Academy Awards, it won three Oscars,
for Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Original Screenplay.
Stallone, who wrote Rocky, showed the script to executives all over
Hollywood. The only demand he made was that he be allowed to play
the title role. The executives had serious doubts as to Stallone's acting
ability (Sly Stallone's acting ability? Shocking.) and offered him
$200,000 for just the screenplay. Stallone held out and ended up
recieving $500 for his script and his performance.
The story of Rocky is what endeared it to ECU's students. Rocky
Balboa's struggle to prove to himself and to the world that he's not just
another bum fighter from Philly touched many.
Movie Madness
"At first, Rocky was a loser ECU freshman, BJ Condron
said. "He was down in the dumps, and he worked to become
the man in boxing
Rocky received the chance of a lifetime when World
Champion Apollo Creed (Carl Weathers) picked him to be his
next opponent. Rocky trains hard for the fight with the help of
Mick (Burgess Meredith, and romances the shy Adrian (Talia
Shire). Rocky goes the entire fight against Creed, only to lose a
close decision, though he showed everybody what he could do
with the right chance.
"I liked the fact that Stallone did it all himself ECU
sophomore Mike Bowen said. "He wrote the story and
everything. He was a nobody before Rocky
"A good date movie" is how Bowen described Jerry Maguire.
The box-office smash is still watched by ECU students with as
much enthusiasm as when it came out. In it, Tom Cruise
played Jerry Maguire, a sports agent who finds all of his friends
and clients vanishing as soon as he starts to protest the policies
of his employe. The only client that sticks by him is second-
stringer Rod Tidwell (Cuba Gooding Jr. in an Oscar-winning
performance), wlio 'expects Maguire to get him the big bucks
he is convinced he deserves. Maguire's relationship with
Dorothy Boyd (Renee Zellweger), a single mother, exposes his
tender side.
"I cried Condron said.
Many other students found the story of Jerry Maguire
touching.
"I've only seen it once ECU sophomore, Brandon Bair
said. "That was with my ex-girlfriend, so it has a lot of
emotional meaning for me
ECU's students thought Adam Sandler's performance as
Happy Gilmore was one of the funniest sports characters seen in
on the big screen. Gilmore has hopes of one day reaching the
NHL, and though he has a devastating slap shot, he has one
drawback: He can't skate. When he discovers his slap shot
gives him a 400-yard drive, Gilmore makes a career change to
win back his grandmother's house.
"The best part was when he ,pt into the fight with Bob

Track teams focus on erasing

Pirates look forward
to productive spring
season
STEPHEN SCHRAMM
SENIOR WRITER
The first days of spring will soon
be upon us. This time of year
signals rebirth and draws us
outdoors and out of our winter
blues.
Spring can't come soon enough
for ECU's track teams. For them,
the arrival of spring marks the
beginning of the outdoor season.
The teams will look to rid
themselves of the
disappointments of the indoor
season and begin their chase for
national recognition and the
conference crown.
The women's team closes the
book on an indoor season filled
with disappointment yet not
devoid of bright spots.

on mostly freshmen and
sophomores. They did well and
set three school records
The lack of veteran talent was
a problem for this year's squad.
However, the fact that the
underclassmen carried the bulk of
the scoring load will yield
dividends in the future.
"The biggest thing is that the
younger kids got a lot more
experience Justice said. "We
had the toughest indoor schedule

good learning experience
The experienced young talent
will help make the outdoor season
all that more promising. In
addition to the youth, the style of
the outdoor meets benefits the
Pirates.
The outdoor meets have more
events, such as the discus, javelin,
10,000 meters and the 4x100
relay.
"We�tend to do better in the

years, George Mason, has suffered
injuries to key members of their
team. This may open the door for
hot teams like UNCW, William
and Mary, James Madison and
possibly ECU to claim the CAA
title.
"If the talent balances out in
the conference, then any team has
a chance Justice said.
Head Coach of men's track.
Bill Carson, has a simple
description of his team's indoor
season.
"It was a disaster Carson said.
"We had high hopes, but they
� didn't materialize. The things we
tried to accomplish didn't get
done
The Pirates' season was so
disappointing that Carson
decided to cut it short, not
sending any athletes to the final
two meets.
The team enterts the outdoor
schedule with a clean slate and
hopes for redemption. The
outdoor tracks fit the style of the
men's team. Gone are the tight
curves and cramped confines that
caused the Pirates' problems in
the indoor meets. They are
replaced with wider turns and
longer tracks of the outdoor
meets.
Another cause for optimism is
the change in philosophy for this
year's team.
"Last year, we based our
season on qualifying for the
NCAA's and that's why we
dropped the baton Carson said.
"We ran to get the provisional
time; we didn't run safe. This
season we will run to get into the
finals and score points so we can
get into the IC4A's
Though few signs from their
indoor season point to a
successful outdoor campaign, the
Pirates are still a talented group
and Carson remains optimistic.
"We come in thinking that
we've got one of the better 4x400
teams in the country, and our
4x100 team will be quite good
Carson said. "Our expectations
will be less so therefore I think we
can still be a good IC4A team

Who will have access to AVRS?
Currently enrolled graduate, non-degree and undergraduate students are eligible to register using the Automated Voice
Response System during the registration period for Summer Sessions and Fall Semester 1998 using the new telephonic
system.
Do I have to use AVRS?
No. You may also register on-line in your major department, the Registrar's office, or any open- terminal.
When can I use AVRS?
Early Registration for Summer Session and Fall Semester of 1998 begins March 30, 1998, at 8:00 a.m. for on-line registra-
tion and 10:00 a.m. for telephonic registration. Please check the SummerFall 1998 Schedule of Classes or the ECU Home
page for the allocation of registration days and all relevant times, dates, and deadlines.
What do I need to do before I can use AVRS?
V Take care of all obligations to the University.
V Obtain your Personal Identification Number (PIN). Without a PIN you cannot use the system.
V Obtain your Registration Code from your adviser during advising week (March 23- March 27). (Graduate and non-degree
students do not require a registration code.)
What is a pin?
It's a "Personal Identification Number" (PIN) just exactly like the PIN you use at your bank for your Automatic Teller Machine
card. It is a four to eight digit number that you obtain over the Web.
To acquire a PIN, you must access STUDENT RECORDS & REGISTRATION on the ECU Home Page (http:www.ecu.edu)
On this page you will find STUDENT RECORDS which indicates that it requires entry of Student ID and PIN. Instructions for
choosing, activating, and using your PIN can be found here. You may select any four to eight digit number. It is important to
remember that if you choose any number less than eight digits you will have to place zeros (0) in front of this number to
make eight digits. You must use an eight digit number to access the voice response system. (EXAMPLE: If your PIN
number is 4321 then when you access the voice response system you must enter 00004321.)
Upon successful selection of a PIN, an Activation Code will be mailed to your campus e-mail address. You must check your
e-mail to retrieve your activation code.
Do I have an Exchange E-mail Account?
Every currently enrolled student has an ECU exchange e-mail account with the exception of those students who have filed a
non-disclosure form. Students that have filed this form with the Registrar's Office will not be able to obtain a PIN number, and
therefore, will be unable to use the automated voice response system.
Your user-id should be your legal initials followed by the month and day of your birth. For example, the user-id for John
Quincy Public born on March 4 would be JQP0304. Your password will be the last six (6) digits of your Social Security
Number. To access your account: You must use the web address: http:www.ecu.eduecuexchmsg.htm.
Please follow the directions on this page. If you are using a personal system (as opposed to a public access lab) you are
encouraged to use POP or IMAP to retrieve your e-mail. Instructions for configuring POP or IMAP service can be found at
the following web site:
http:www.ecu.eduexchangepop.
If you have any problems or questions about your E-mail account, please go to Austin 208 for assistance or call 328-0077.
Questions?
If you have any questions call the Registrar's Office at (919)r328-6524; Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.
