If a student at ECU committed a hate crime,
the student would face additional penalties other
than those handed down by the courts.

there was a violation, we would then decide on the

"North Carolina does have laws against hate crime, but it
does not protect gay and lesbian people Gersh said.
ECU's Police Department has been voluntarily participat-

(SBI) since late 1995.
"North Carolina's way ahead of most states in the country
said Tom lounce, assistant director of the ECUPD. "They
voluntarily instituted hate crime reporting six years ago
The ECUPD sifts through reports, looking for any that fit
the requirements of a hate crime. If one is found, it is reported
to the Division of Crime Information at the SBI, which then
passes it on to the FBI.
There have been only three incidents reported to the
ECUPD since the program began. In February 19, racially
inflammatory notes were left on a bulletin board in a residence
hall. In October 1996 and November 1997, harassing phone
calls were made to gay individuals.
No criminal charges were made in any of those incidents.

crimes. Statute 14-3, Committing a Misdemeanor Because of

days, now that the asbestos is
completely removed, and should
be opened by January of 2000.
Jarvis was chosen for renova-

Director Manny Amaro said.
The roof will be replaced with
red tile similar to the original style,
and the front porch will be left as
"The whole Fifth Street front
will keep the traditional look
said Carol Hines, project manager

Most of the original features of
the hall will be left intact.

the building Amaro said.
Jarvis will feature microfridges,
state-of-the-art bathrooms and

Rape is one of the most heinous crimes imaginable. Over the past few years, there
have been several rapes on campus which have all generated news, fear and public uproar.
In these cases, there have been suspects, convictions, and cases where the rapist got away
in the end.
In some cases, the victims never come to terms with the nightmare they have
undergone. In others, the victim may be too terrified to speak up and let the authorities
know that she has been raped so that action can be taken.
We at TEC want to remind victims that help is not far away. If you are raped, there
are ways to make certain the rapist is caught and put in prison, or better yet, the ground.
In a world of false accusations, a rape kit will prove the crime s existence. These
can be administered to the victim at Pitt County Hospital. The rape kit takes semen, hair
and skin samples that can be matched to the rapist. We strongly urge the victim not to
wait. It is wise not to shower or cleanse your body because it may contain the evidence
jhat will lead to the apprehension of the rapist.
It is also extremely important to report the crime to the police. Report to the ECU
Campus Police as well as the Greenville Police Department. This will launch an
investigation which will also lead to an apprehension.
If it happens that you are raped, let someone know about so that the proper
measures can be taken that will lead to another criminal in his place - behind bars. It is
understandable that this is a difficult event to cope with, but repression only gives the
papist more time to find another victim and strike again. Had his last victim spoken up, it
fray never have happened to you.
There are also ways to avoid a possible rape situation. Never walk anywhere on
dampus at night by yourself. Go places in groups - large groups. Take advantage of the
emergency phones with the blue lights. This allows you to safely be escorted by a campus
policeman to your destination. If you are not close to an emergency phone, call a friend or
the police to escort you from wherever you are. That is what friends and the police are for -
Rape happens, and unfortunately it happens on our happy little ECU campus.
Protect yourself and take necessary precautions in order to prevent such a horrible thing
from happening to you.
Cynicism poisons society
Most recently, a study just
released by the Pew Research
Center for People and the
Press showed that only about
one-third of Americans trust
the federal government.
If you don't know who Bell is,
count yourself lucky. Bell hosted
the fourth most popular talk show
in the country. It is estimated that
he had anywhere from 6.5 to 15
million regular listeners. And just
what were all these people listing
to? Paranoid rantings about UFOs
and secret government projects.
The fact that so many people
were willing to believe this kind of
lunacy points out an even larger
problem. Our culture is awash in
cynicism. The evidence is
A poll taken in 1994 showed
that the majority of Americans
believed that politicians care more
about special interests than
ordinary people, more about
keeping office than the best
interests of the county, and that
campaign promises are made with
no intention of their being kept.
A 19 study showed that only
one-third of workers thought that
management was "trustworthy

This cynicism is eating away at
the foundation of our democracy.
Because so many people believe
the worst about our leaders, they
don't bother paying attention to
campaigns. Because politicians are
expected to lie and break their
promises, we don't hold them
accountable when they do. And
every time that this happens, it
merely reinforces the already
Most importantly, this climate
discourages honest people from
participating. Why would any
decent individual subject him or
herself to the pain and frustration
of trying to run for office when
doing so will only make a large
percentage of the population
doubt his or her motivation? And
so cynicism becomes a self-
Cynicism has an undeniable
appeal. Cynics can believe that
everyone is motivated by
selfishness, while they are
virtuous. They can also believe
that everyone else is foolish for
buying into all the lies. For that
matter, why even bother trying to
stay informed if nothing anyone
says is believable?
All of this is not to say that
everything that public officials say
should be accepted at face value.
But the proper attitude to take is
one of healthy skepticism, not
cynicism. It is fine to question the
arguments made on behalf of a
policy; the arguer's motivation is
irrelevant the truth of the
Think of skepticism and
cynicism as acid. A small amount
used carefully will clean a valuable
item. A large amount will destroy
it. As we prepare to vote in the
next few weeks, try to remember

Mandatory minimun no good
These are laws that say that
for certain offenses, a
mandatory minimum of time
must be served in jail without
parole. This sounds good in
theory. But the people who get
locked away are non-violent
first time offenders.
Do you ever feel that the law
makers aren't listening to your
concerns? Well I do. Have you
ever noticed that some of the
things that you like to do are
illegal? Well, I figure that the laws
of this nation aren't adequately
reflecting the will of the people.
I lerc arc some examples of laws
that the public at large doesn't
Marijuana. I would say that a
very large proportion of our
population would support the
legalization of marijuana. I don't
smoke it, but I can find nothing
wrong with it. Heck, alcohol is
legal, and it kills thousands and
destroys the lives and marriages of
thousands more. I find nothing
wrong with a drug that makes
people want to eat junk food and
go to sleep. The only reason it was
outlawed in the first place is
because the cotton barons of the
1930s influenced congress to
outlaw hemp because it posed a
threat to the profits of the cotton

story. A mother of three gives a
friend a ride to work and the guy
accidentally drops his stash of
LSD in her car. The mother drives
home and is stopped for speeding.
The cop searches the car and finds
the LSD. Mom gets stuck with
rapists and murderers for a period
of no less than 15 years without
parole. Even judges denounce
these ridiculous laws, which they
claim are as reasonable as sending
a jaywalker to the electric chair.
The drinking age. I could buy
tobacco, serve in the military, be
charged as an adult, pay taxes and
vote as an 18-year-old. But I can't
go out and pick up a six pack of
Miller Lite. What is wrong here? I
guess my country thinks that I am
a man since I have enough
responsibility to endure incredible
agony and hardship to fight for my
country, but in the same respect, I
am just a child when it comes to
buying a beer. Sort of hypocritical,
I feel that our lawmakers as a
whole are pushing their own
agendas, and are turning a blind
eye to their constituents. They are
too worried about getting re-
elected by the old retirees who
actually vote. This is where we
come in. Young people as a whole
don't vote because they feel like
they are too busy or too cool, or
some other lame excuse. But if we
all would actually vote, we would
have nothing to complain about.
There are a lot more of us than
them, so why do we let them tell
us what to do? It was the work of
forward-looking progressives like
our parents who finally ended
segregation by uniting together for
a common cause. If they didn't
stand up to the old school
lawmakers, we could still have
to the Editor
Southern bashing uncalled for
I am sorry to inform you but you
crossed the line in your remarks
about Southerners in the Oct. 13th
edition of The East Carolinian.
Southern people are not the
stereotype you described in your
opinion column. I believe you were
confused with "poor white trash"
who live all over the country,
including the North.
Sure I'm a good ole Southern
boy who was born and raised in
Southern Wake County who drives
a four-wheel drive Chevy truck,
listens to Country music, and loves
to hunt and fish. But, my friend,
this does not make me a middle
school dropout with no teeth who
beats his wife. A true Southern
gentleman treats ALL women with
respect and has more manners than
any negative-thinking, know-it-all
Yankee does. You also mentioned
that the only difference between
"us and them" was that
Southerners cuss too much, whicli
is also a miss-led stereotype. You
forgot to mention the real
differencessuch as liberal political
beliefs, large noses that you talk
through, and an attitude that
believes nothing is good enough
and nothing can please you. By the
way, over one-third of the races on
the NASCAR circuit are in the
North, just thought I would clear
that up while it was on my mind.
I cannot believe you had to say
something about the Civil War! I
happen to have five Confederate
flags hanging in my room along
with one on my permanent North
Carolina license plate because I am
a proud member of The Sons of
Confederate Veterans This is all
heritage to our ancestry and
background, no hatred involved.
Personally I have never crossed the
Mason-Dixon Line and don't
intend to because it must be pretty
bad since you say all Yankees want
to move down here. If this is so,
then why must you bash Southern
culture and its people?
Finally, the real difference
between us is that Northerners
don't have the guts to address these
issues face to face; they just hide
behind the black and white print. If
you want to talk bad about
Southerners, give me a call some
time. I'm in the book.
Got something to say? Need somewhere to say it?

Jennifer Mitchell, who was an

This summer the nation was awed by the blasts
St. Louis Cardinals' Mark McGwire sent out of
America's ballparks. Almost as well document-
ed as his home runs was his use of legal over-
the-counter performance enhancing drugs.
Like McGwire, every college athlete strives to
improve his or her performance. However,
when hard work and dedication are no longer
enough, some turn to medications.
In the United States, there are a variety of
legal performance enhancers on the market,
many of which are banned by the NCAA. The
NCAA only endorses the use of one such drug,
Creatine occurs natural-
ly in the liver through the
synthesis of amino acids.
Creatine can also be
obtained through a diet
high in meat and fish,
though it may be lost dur-
ing cooking. This forces
many athletes to get
Creatine in their bodies
Creatine enhances a
muscle's ability to do work.
It also adds volume to muscle cells by increasing
their water content. It is especially useful in
sports that contain intermittent bouts of high
intense activity. These qualities have made it a
part of ECU's training program.
"The reason we use Creatine is because num-
ber one, it works and number two, it hasn't been
banned ECU strength and conditioning coach
Jeff Connors said.
ECU athletes have the option to take
Creatine. If they choose to, they can look for-
ward to two stages of Creatine use. The loading
phase is a period of five days where the athlete
takes a daily dose of .45 grams per kilogram of
body weight. After the loading phase is complete
the athlete enters the second and final phase, the
maintenance phase. In this phase the athlete
takes half of the amount they took during
the loading phase, 0.225 grams per kilogram
Creatine allows for greater endurance during workouts and is used by approximately one-fifth of all ECU athletes.
of body weight.
"We take Creatine on a voluntary basis. We
try to stay with these guidelines in administering
the product Connots said.
Connors estimates that one-fifth of all ECU
athletes take Creatine. Most of these athletes
play sports such as football, baseball and track,
sports that involve fast twitch muscle use.
ECU is not alone in its reliance on

college level, there are still a vast number of
programs that take Creatine Connors said.
As with any non-natural supplements,
Creatine does not come without its prob-
"Last year there were many complaints
of Creatine causing muscle cramps, yet
many research studies have not been able
to reproduce this in the lab Connors said.
Connors believes that the problems
associated with Creatine are results of poor
quality Creatine and misuse of the product.
The lack of knowledge about the long-term
effects of Creatine are also a problem.
According to Connors, Creatine users defend
their stand by saying that many former Soviet
athletes have been using the product for

"We have set basically three
goals for this season Gibson said.

According to Gibson, the team

To compete with these teams,
Coach Gibson plans to push the

Despite all the evidence on the
benefits of Creatine, many athletes
decide not to take it.
"I don't have a problem with it

don't take anything. I just go off my
ability that God gave me and the
weight training that coach Connors
puts us through said ECU line-
backer Rod Coleman. I'm not into
taking drugs or supplements to
enhance my ability or performance.
That comes through hard work
Creatine is the only legal sub-
stance to be used by NCAA ath-
letes. The number of banned per-
formance enhancers continues to
grow as the market becomes crowd-
ed with newer drugs with bolder
claims. Connors sees the growth of
the market first hand as free sam-
ples of new drugs clutter his desk
"I don't mess with these prod-
ucts. People send them to me, but I
can't distribute them because
they're not legal Connors said.
"They all do the same thing and
they are all banned by the NCAA
and the Olympic Committee
Any product that increases the
level of testosterone or increases
the user's heart rate is
banned under NCAA by
law number 22.214.171.124. Products
such as Nbrandrostenedione,
and Androstenedione all fall under
this category and are banned.
Androstenedione, which is legal
in Major League Baseball, became
famous this year after McGwire's
confession to taking them.
"I don't think you can say that
Mark McGwire's success is attrib-
uted to Androstenedione, because I
don't think it has such a significant
effect Connors said. "(He's) trying

before heading into the intermission
