While numerous members of the commu-

Martin Luther King Jr. with candlelight vig-
ils' and plays, one tribute that will be
remembered for years is the renaming of

The process of changing the name of
West Fifth St. was met with controversy.
Many Fifth St. residents and business own-
ers opposed the renaming of the street, but
the Greenville City Council voted in April
to adopt the changes.
According to Rountree, many other loca-
tions were given consideration before the
final decision was made to change West

plaints about Fifth St Rountree said.

Businesses complained that they would
incur expenses involved in changing func-
tional items like letterhead. Businesses and
organizations affected include Globe
Hardware, NAACP, The Percolator and
Some said the renaming may cause prob-
lems with road maintenance, since the area
between Albermarle Road and Memorial
Drive is a state maintained road. However,
Greenville's city planner disagrees.
"On a minor change like this the state
probably wouldn't have any problem
accepting the name change said Harry

Over the past week ECU has provided
many interesting opportunities for students
and the public to celebrate Martin Luther
Students and faculty have worked hard
to produce a unique way for those who were
interested to look back and commemorate
the life of King through plays, vigils,
speeches and other events.
Professor Reginald Watson of the
English Department recently wrote a play
entitled "I've Been to the Mountain Top
and It Don't Look So Good It was per-
formed in Mendenhall Student Center on
Martin Luther King Day. The play focuses
on King rising from the dead in 1999 only to
find out that his dream of racial harmony
has not been achieved. Watson, who has
written two other plays, felt that the turnout
was great, with almost every seat in the
" I wanted to help in spreading the message
and symbol of Martin Luthet King through
the play so that I could educate and enter-
tain Watson said.
Later in the day, people of all races
worked together to promote King's memo-
ry and his teachings through a candlelight
vigil. The vigil began at the top of College
Hill and was followed by a march across
campus. A program was later performed
which featured music performed by the
ECU Gospel Choir. Those who attended
the program after the march were addressed
by Dorothy Spruill Redford, site manager of
Somerset Place, a historic plantation site on
Lake Phelps in Washington and Tyrrell
counties. Redford spoke of the importance
of African Americans to have knowledge of
and celebrate their rich heritage. She also
stressed the importance of living our dai'y
lives with King's ideals in mind, not just
one day out of the year.
Na-im Akbar, mentor for ECU's
Ledonia Wright African American Cultural
Center, said that the turnout as well as the
response from those in attendance was

Three ECU students attended the fifth
annual National African-American Student
Leadership Conference in Holly Springs,
Mississippi, Jan. 16-18.
This year, the conference was designed
to address issues of liberation and analysis
of African-American leadership models
past and present. Students from across the
U.S. attended, representing areas ranging
from Texas to Iowa. Most attendees came
from predominately white campuses, in an
effort to learn how to communicate effec-
tively with all races. The theme of speak-
ers this year was "Where Do We Go from
Here: Chaos or Community?" Held at the

On Feb 8, Dawud Abdullah
Muhammad (formerly David
Junior Brown) will find out
whether he has a chance to avoid
execution for a crime he may not
On an August morning in 1980,
Diane Chalfinch and her nine-year-
old daughter were found stabbed to
death in their apartment in
Pinchurst, N.C. A distinctive ring,
quickly identified as the property
of her neighbor, Brown, was found
inside Chalfinch's body. What was
characterized at the time as "Mr.
Brown's bloody hand print" was
also discovered in Chalfinch's
apartment. Drops of blood which
trailed from Chalfinch's apartment
door to Brown's apartment door
were also found at the scene.
Brown worked with Chalfinch at
the hotel where they both lived.
This evidence, along with
Brown's inability to submit an alibi
and a suspiciously deep knife
wound on Brown's hand, con-
vinced a jury beyond reasonable
doubt to sentence Brown to death.
Brown's lawyers, however, con-
tinue to raise questions about the
incriminating evidence. His ring
was one of the key pieces of evi-
dence in the conviction, but Brown
testified that he removed his ring at
a party where he was spinning
records on the night the murders
took place and that he did not sec it
again until it was submitted as evi-
dence in his murder trial.
Investigators could identify nei-
ther the origin nor the age of the
blood trailed between the two
apartments, finding only that it did
not belong to either Brown or the
victims. Experts testified that the
blood could have been there for
many years prior to the incident
and that it could not even be posi-
tively identified as human blood.
Investigators were also unable to
find a single drop of Brown's blood
in the victims' apartment or any of
the victims' blood in his, a fact that
even prosecutors had difficulty
explaining under the circumstances
of such a bloody crime.
In 1994, a former co-worker of
Chalfinch, told police that he saw
her ten miles away from her apart-
ment at 4:45 a.m. on Monday morn-
ing, the exact time when she was
supposedly being stabbed to death
in her apartment According to the
witness himself, however, the pros-
ecution intentionally kept him hid-
den in a hotel under a fake name to
prevent him from testifying. Two
other witnesses, also co-workers,
said they were ignored by police.
They claim to have heard a woman
screaming "Leave her alone in
Chalfinch's apartment a day-and-a-
half after Chalfinch was supposedly
dead. A few minutes later they saw
a man that they could positively
identify as one of Chalfinch's ex-
boyfriends jumping from the bal-
cony of her apartment. They said
that the ex-boyfriend saw them,
said "Oh my God and ran off.
Police took the witnesses' state-
ments, but they never appeared in

WASHINGTON (AP) The
Supreme Court will decide whether
a disputed federal law violates free-
speech rights or effectively protects
compulsive gamblers from the lure
The court said Jan. 15 it will
judge the validity of a ban on televi-
sion and radio ads that promote casi-
owned by Indian tribes.
The ban is only in effect in some
pans of the nation because some
federal appeals courts have ruled it
unconstitutional while others
have upheld it.
For example, the 9th U.S.
Circuit Court of Appeals struck
down the ban last year, blocking its
enforcement in nine Western states
Alaska, Arizona, California, Hawaii,
Idaho, Montana.Nevada, Oregon
The Supreme Court refused last
February to review that But
Congress in the past 20 years has
anti-broadcast law to allow airing
ads for casinos on Indian reserva-
tions, state-run lotteries or any gam-
bling sponsored by nonprofit pro-
moters working for charitable pur-
Today, 37 sates and the District
of Columbia sponsor and aggres-
sively advertise lotteries, and
two-thirds of the states are home
to Indian-owned casinos. Non-
Indian casinos are legal in 22 states,
appeal acted on Jan. 18 focuses
on how the federal ban affects
advertising for those establish-
ments. The New Orleans-based 5th
U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals
upheld the ban. Justice
Department lawyers say the New
Orleans court was right
They point to studies detailing
economic and social problems, such
as compulsive gambling and orga-
nized crime, associated with casi-
no gambling and other gaming
In seeking to have the 5th
Circuit court's ruling overturned,
the Greater New Orleans
Broadcasting Association and indi-
vidual radio and television stations
contend that the government's stat-
ed concern for compulsive gamblers
is hard to swallow.
"Broadcasters are encouraged to
air advertisements that feature
gaming conducted on Indian reser-
are permitted o broadcast adver-
tisements that feature pari-mutuel
betting and other sports betting
they noted. Recent Supreme Court
rulings appeared to cut against such
an advertising ban. The court ruled
in a Rhode Island case last year that
states may not ban all advertising
that refers to liquor prices in efforts
to promote sobriety. '

� It astonishes us that anyone feels it a fitting tribute to divide a street in half (a division which
happens to fall on racial lines) and give only a portion of it in honor of a man who gave his life
for racial equality and desegregation.
Dr. Martin Luther King, JR. was murdered because he promoted racial equality through
non-violent means. He was murdered because an intolerant racist assassin wanted to quiet his
words of peace. He was murdered because he attracted an international following of thousands
who took comfort in his words and turned to him for leadership.
King was not a black hero. He was a hero for everyone. He was a hero for the black
population, who were segregated and given second-class rights, as well as a hero for whites who
Wanted segregation and racism eliminated. His words set a precedence for peaceful yet
persistent change for other groups of people in this country and around the world. Today, in
Greenville, King should be a hero for people on both the "black end" of Fifth Street and the
The very fact that Fifth Street itself is so polarized is a testament that the societal issues
which King addressed more than 30 years ago still persist. The government may not support
segregation anymore, but people still make conscious decisions about where to live and who
to associate with on the basis of race.
Fifth Street, like many other streets and residential areas of cities across the country, is
divided. Perhaps this is why other cities have named large boulevards and thoroughfares after
King. It seems unfitting somehow to divide a street or to select a portion of a street which is
associated, however unfortunately, with any specific population.
At a city council meeting in April 1998, in which the vote was taken on the name change,
a mother stood up to say she had tried to explain to her young daughter what King stood for
and why he was an important man, worthy of the honor of having a street named after him.
After the mother explained to her daughter about King's life and the civil rights movement,
the daughter turned and asked her why he only got half a street. As the daughter grows older
and hears racist remarks about areas like West Fifth Street and learns that many people still
keep very close social circles, she will know why the street was divided.
College students don't often think past graduation and career, but the day is coming when
we, too, will have a child who is bom into this world pure, without any knowledge of racist
attitudes or traditions. Citizens of Greenville, including ECU students, have a responsibility
not to carry further the racist divisions that exist today.
We believe King would have wanted a street like Fifth Street named for him. Because it
runs past homes filled with white people, homes filled with black people, government
buildings, a public university, a private Catholic school, black-owned businesses and white-
If we can't agree to give all of Fifth Street to King, we need to find a street we can give. King
does not deserve a street named in his honor simply because every other city already has one
or because it is an easy political decision to make.
Driving down old West Fifth Street and seeing the sign labeled Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Memorial Drive will never remind us of the tremendous contributions of a grea't leader or of
how the civil rights movement affects us today. Instead, it will always remind us of how divided
our own town is and of how far we still have to go.
Two great Southerners not forgotten
This past Monday we were able
to commemorate the life and death
of a great man, Dr. Martin Luther
King, Jr. There were parades,
festivals, TV shows and dedications
made all around the country. There
was even a new street named after
him here in Greenville. This was a
wonderful and an important day for
all of us here for a plethora of
reasons; one of them being that he,
like so many of us here, was a proud
ton of the South, and he made us all
so proud by representing our
geographical location so well.
But lost in all this celebrating
was the celebration of two other
proud sons of the South that did so
much for all of us. Monday was also
Lee-Jackson Day, commemorating
the lives of two of this country's
finest gentlemen, Civil War
generals Robert E. Lee and
Stonewall Jackson. For those of you
who don't know, this has been a day
celebrated long before MLK day
here in the southern states. It is a
day that honors two great men who
wanted to do nothing more than
make life better for all the citizens
of the South. They fought to keep
states' rights, which kept the
national government from
controlling and regulating
everything we do in our respective
states, principles that still stand
Before anyone jumps to accuse
Lee and Jackson of being flaming
racist bigots that despise the
American way as we've all come to
know it, here are the facts. As soon
as war was imminent, they released
their slaves and ensured their safe
passage out of the soon-to-be
battle-trodden state of Virginia.
Both men attended the United
States Military Academy and were
at the top of their respective classes,
and they were heros during the
Mexican-American War. In fact,
General Lee was Lincoln's first
choice as head Union general.
I did not write to take away from
MLK day, not by any means. I'm
just asking you to help honor the
memories of two great men. These
men loved their country; they just
fought for what they believed in, as
many American heros before and
after them have done. When it is all
said and done, like King, they were
good men - men who stood up for
what they believed in. They had
the highest moral standards,
integrity and honor, and that's the
stuff real heros are made of.

Dishonesty taken hold on us
The general and constant lack
of honesty has taken a
noticeable toll on society.
Honesty. What a novel concept.
Telling the truth and expecting to
be told the truth are indeed
laughable and random events these
days. Honesty is now considered a
mysterious virtue which can only
be attained by astute discipline and
rigorous soul-searching. Can
anyone imagine that not too long
ago it was deemed almost the
barest minimum of common
decency not to lie or variate the
truth? Was it because people in
general possessed a higher standard
of morals and religious conviction?
Or, was there just less temptation
and therefore less of a reason to lie?
To be sure, those aren't exactly
questions wrenching the heart of
most college students and
spawning them into a hopeless
intellectual crisis, but they are valid
The general and constant lack of
honesty has taken a noticeable toll
on society. The most obvious
example (of course) is the
ClintonLewinsky fiasco. Basically,
the whole chain of perplexing
events boils down to the simple fact
that a total disrespect and disregard
for anything resembling honesty
and truth has occurred and is
continuing to take place at this very
moment. What is really
disheartening is that this scandal is
evidence that politics imitate life
(rather than life imitating politics).
The president's actions are a mirror
image of society, and the public
wanting to excuse the president for
lying is an attempt to justify what
Americans do whenever they can.
Politicians aren't the only
dishonest people here. A recently
conducted poll revealed that 30
percent of American married men
believed that cheating on their
wives was a natural and inevitable
part of marriage. At first that
statistic may seem humorous, but
the realization of it shatters people's
homes and lives, all for something
deemed acceptable. The high
percentage also conveys how far
the fundamental facets of character
and integrity have left society.
This column isn't meant to be
some diatribe or propaganda for the
folks at the Religious Right or a
Integrity and fairness should be
sacred to everyone since the lack
thereof facilitated the founding of
this country and initiated some of
the policies that have made thii
country a pretty great place to live
What has caused this shifting
away from honesty? The primary
source would be a concept of
philosophy known as rclativismj
which is the contention thai
ultimate truth is hard, if not
impossible to define. Therefore;
what is right depends on tha
person, time and situation (Clinton"
completely subscribes to this
reasoning). Simply put, relativism
amounts to justifying and
rationalizing every action an
individual takes so that they can
have some sense of inner peace.
No one is ever held completely
accountable because everyone has
the opportunity to explain why
what they did was "right at thej
time Relativism is definitely noq
all bad and thus has a lot of validity
but it carries with it the fatal flaw of)
most idealistic thought: human!
Admittedly, being honest is
difficult, especially when everyone
is fudging on everything from their,
homework to the reason for thej
hole in their apartment wall. The;
problem is, the benefits of honesty
(like a clear conscience and good
karma) just don't seem to outweigh!
the benefits of being less than!
honest, and we all know what those
benefits are. It's just one more of!
life's perplexing ironies.
Predictions for judgement year
Ryan Dogg mil win a
Pulitzer for his dead-on,
Happy gnu yerr! As you can
see, I did not git a spelle checkr
fore x-mas. I did, however, get a
nice guitar and amplifier. And
perhaps the best present of all, the
George Foreman Fat Reducing
Grilling Machine! It's so choice.
If you nave the means, I definitely
recommend picking one up.
But enough about me! Let's
talk about something else for a
By the time you read this, it
will be 1999. Kind of hard to
imagine, isn't it? Here we are, only
a year away from what many
people (religious people mostly)
believe to be the judgment day,
and yet we still have not found a
way to coexist peacefully! "But
who should we blame for this?"
you may be asking yourself.
Well, Bubba, as far as I can tell,
nobody. Some might say Neil
Diamond. Others say the smart
money is on Stephen Kleinschmitt
(I get bragging rights for first put-
down of the year). The fact of the
matter is, that as long, as we
continue to live this way (the
bombings, the killing of the
innocent, etc.) we will never be
able to achieve this great paradise.
On that extent, let me make some
predictions for this year of our lord,
Nineteen Hundred and Ninety-
l.The WB network will take
note from the success of
"Dawson's Creek" and drop its
other shows, such as "Unhappily
Ever After 'The Jamie Foxx
Show and the cable ace award
winning "Homeboys in Space
The shows will be revamped into
shows entitled "Dawson Ever
After 'The Jamie Foxx Show
featuring Pacey and "Homeboys
in the Creek
2. Elizabeth Dole will be
starting her run for the presidency,
and this columnist thinks it's about
time we had someone decent in
the White House. The sad part is
that the guy who should be
president right now may have to
settle for the First Lady position.
3. Alf Returns!
4.A new album by legendary
'80s pop-punkers Blondie will
come and go, and the Matchbox
20 album will continue its reign on
the charts for the next 18 years.
5.Plucky Rap-person Sean
"Puffy" Combs will start to run
short of '80s songs to sample and
will branch out into the bluegrass
scene. His first single to be titled
"Hillbilly got da Uzi" will feature
a duet with Allison Krauss and the
once-dead Notorious BIG.
6. Ryan-Dogg action figures
will hit the toy rack and become
the staple toy of the holiday
season. Noting the lucrative sales
figures, other Ryan-Dogg related
toys shall be available, such as
Tickle-Me Ryan-Dogg, Ryan-
Dogg: Weak Bladder Edition
and Ryan Dogg with Kung-Fu
Grip, for those lonely nights.
7.Sadam Hussand, er,
Husseion, uh, that guy that is in
Iraq will go on television and tell
the world that he likes to dress in
women's clothing, upon which
time he rips off his fatigues to
reveal that he has been wearing a
tight albeit sexy teddy throughout
his entire political career. His
popularity with the nation triples.
H.Macintosh computers will
begin their new line of
commercials for the Imac,
featuring both people that bought
one last year.
9.Jason, the hockey-masked
killer from the Friday the 13th
films, will finallv die for good, or
10. Ryan Dogg will win a
Pulitzer for his dead-on,
Nostradamus-ish predictions. He
will later sell it to buy something
frivolous, such as Hawaii
Well, that's about all this time.
If I'm wrong, nevermind. If I'm
right, you owe me half yout yearly
wages. Sounds fair, I think. At any
case, we'll just have to wait and
see, provided we don't get nuked
first by that guy over there in the
desert. Just remember these
words, duck and cover. Learn 'cm,
live by 'em.

Recycling program benefits campus
Students encouraged to

Many ECU students pass by a
white can on their way to class
without giving it one thought. What
they may not realize about that
white trailer is that it saves the uni-
versity over one million pounds in
According to the ECU recycling
web site, "The goal of the ECU
Recycling Program is to reduce
waste and minimize the universi-
ty's impact on local landfills
' The ECU Recycling Program,
sponsored by the Office of
Environmental Health and Safety,
has been around since 1991. The
program has taken many forms on
campus. There are many recycling
bins in every classroom building,
including The School of Medicine.
The trailer that serves as a collec-
tion bin moves every two days from
College Hill to Greene Hall and to
the campus mall every week.
Materials such as aluminum, paper,
glass and plastic are recyclable and
can be placed in these bins. For
information on special recycling
pickups, call 328-60.
"We have bins all over the
place said Roy Briley, a member
of the three-man team that collects
the materials from the bins.
"Everyone should be able to use
Joyner Library, Mendenhall
Student Center and the Student
Recreation Center also offer ways
to recycle. They take part in the
recycling program by displaying
collection bins and by recycling
their own waste products.
One of the reasons for the
implementation of the recycling
program is that the North Carolina
legislature has made it mandatory
for all state employees and agen-
cies to recycle materials with a
goal of 40 percent total waste
reduction by the year 2000.
Only specific materials are
accepted for recycling. Items are
separated into various categories.
In the white collection trailer, 1
and 2 plastics, aluminum cans,
glass (clear, brown and green) and
paper (office, computer, newspa-
per) are accepted. A three man
team goes around collecting these
materials which account for 27 per-
cent of ECU's waste. The teams
are made up of staff, though work
study students are also employed
for the program.
Cardboard and scrap metal
should be placed beside the nearest
dumpsters. There is now a fine for
putting large amounts of cardboard
into the landfills, so it saves the uni-
versity unnecessary money if card-
board is recycled.
include saving natural resources,
energy and landfill space.
Recycling also helps reduce the
cost of trash disposal and raw prod-
ucts. Pollution is also decreased as a
A student throws her plastic trash into one of the many recycling bins on campus.
The money that is gained from
the recycled materials goes back
into the program.
"We use the money to maintain
our equipment like our trailer and
metal containers said Tom
Pohlman, who is in charge of the
The advantages of recycling
"Recycling is just the right thing
to do Pohlman said.
The Office of Environmental
Health and Safety is not the only
group recycling. Many offices at
ECU recycle the material they use.
Facility Services recycled 15,000
pounds of white goods last year,
including such things as broken air
conditioners, scrap metal and vari-
ous other materials. Facility
Services also managed to divert
52,000 pounds of tires, batteries, oil
filters and motor oil from the land-
fill last year.
Materiels Management was able
to recycle over 2,000 pounds of
printer cartridges and other office
waste. The Grounds Department
recycled and composted 724,000
pounds of yard waste, most of
which was the result of hurricane
damage. Dining Services managed
to recycle 63,000 pounds of cooking
Announcements are usually cir-
culated to the faculty and staff to
encourage them to practice recy-
cling methods, but students are the
key to on-campus recycling. Even
everyday activities like using e-mail
can help the environment. By using
e-mail and other electronic data
transfers, 250,000 pounds of paper
were saved last year.
"One of the disadvantages to
recycling, if there really is one, is
that it requires a sense of commit-
ment Pohlman said.

New club started by health-conscious students
Members decide path
A new organization is beginning at ECU that will
address students' views of wellness on campus. This
club promises to be totally run by student members;
all students are encouraged to join.
A set of tiny footprints, or "a path of wellness will
be visible in Mendenhall. This will lead to the meet-
ing where refreshments will be served afterwards.
This student wellness organization, which will soon
be given a name by its members, will be coordinated
by students from different health-related majors and
non-majors. Some students have already been select-
ed for this organization, but it is open to everyone. The
sponsors for this club are Kari Brown, Laura Hartung
and Heather Zophy, who all come from different well-
ness related areas on campus.
"It'll be exciting to see what direction the stu-
dents take said Kari Brown, assistant director of fit-
ness at Recreation Services.
One purpose of this organization is for students to
learn from one another about the different areas that
wellness encompasses, including nutrition, fitness,
exercise and disease.
Another reason for the formation of this group is to
replace the Peer Health Educators, who provided a
student-oriented perspective for the campus on health
At the first meeting, leaders will be chosen and sur-
veys will be filled out by the prospective members.
The surveys will cover many issues and areas that stu-
dents may want to learn about and promote on cam-
pus. The purpose is to figure out what direction the
club will take.
"We'll be brainstorming about different issues
across the campus including student dining, recre-
ation, health, and many other areas Brown said.
"We want to know student opinions about how to
promote a healthy lifestyle and how to reach out to the
campus said Laura Hartung, director of nutrition at
The amount of wellness issues that concern college j�
students are numerous. Fitness, nutrition and stress mi
reduction are just some of the issues that this new 'ti
group will be tackling.
"There's been a variety of different strategies of lb
health and wellness on campus said Heather Zophy, �
director of health education at Health services. "We s5
want students to help students
The first meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, Jan. n
27 at the Mendenhall Student Center Social Room at u
4 p.m. The agenda involves discussing where and t
when students would like to meet regularly.
"We want to bring enthusiasm and excitement iet
about wellness to the campus Hartung said.

Stolen identity turns nightmarish
ALBUQUERQUE (AP) �
There's something about Meriyha
she would like you to know. She is
Meriyha McAfee, upstanding citi-
zen, mother of two, hardworking
employee, non-smoker and non-
She is not Meriyha McAfee,
crack addict, twice-accused felon,
friend to a fugitive and perpetrator
of an extensive array of traffic vio-
And she isn't the Meriyha
McAfee whose arrest in a string of
car-stereo thefts was in the news
But this is no split personality,
no evil twin story.
Meriyha McAfee says her iden-
tity was stolen.
Worse, she says, it was pilfered
by a woman she once called her
Now McAfee, like the growing
number of people who discover
that someone else is committing
crimes in their name, helplessly
watches as this case of mistaken
identity steals her precious time
and money and could eventually-
rob her of her reputation, her job,
her children and her freedom.
"I can't go anywhere without
worrying that she's done some-
thing wrong but I get caught

Albuquerque woman said. "It's
I feel mad. I feel everything.
I don't know what to do
Officials of the Albuquerque
police, Metro Court and district
attorney's office say it's a problem
that has increased substantially in
the last two years. And it's one
that's hard to fix.
"Lots of criminals are doing it
because it's so easy to do and so
easy to get away with said Byron
Samora, police detective. "There
is no punishment
Officials say McAfee's night-
mare won't totally be resolved
until her friend is arrested and
identified under the correct name.
There's no telling when that may

shadow. "Maybe my daughter will
get the blame
Readers first learned of
Meriyha McAfee in a Nov. 17 story
detailing her purported role as get-
away driver for suspected car-
stereo scofflaws who traded their
booty for crack cocaine.
Among McAfee's companions
was a man identified as one of
New Mexico's most wanted fugi-
The real McAfee said she
knows the impostor.
"She's been doing this to me for
a long time McAfee said.
Her criminal counterpart, she
said, is a childhood friend who lost
her way when she found crack
"I was going to lose my job
because of all this McAfee said.
"I had to explain everything
The women were born two
weeks apart in the same month,
the same year. They had been
' neighbors as children.
"We were best friends, friends
since we were 5 McAfee said.
"She sometimes lived with my
family when we were growing up
and she was having trouble at
home. We were like sisters
The two also shared a place
together as young adults and raised
children together, she said.
The relationship began to
crumble as the friend became
increasingly imprisoned by drug
addiction, McAfee said.
"But we were still friends even
though she was doing this to me
without me knowingMcAfec
McAfee said she didn't discover
it until Sept. 8, 1997, when
McAfee herself was cited for a
minor traffic violation.
"I called downtown to find out
my court date and they tell me I
have all these warrants McAfee
Metro Court records indicate
that a Meriyha McAfee was cited
for 14 traffic violations � careless
driving, no registration, no insur-
ance, no driver's license, speeding
and driving with an open contain-
er, and others � on four occasions
beginning in March 1997.
Five of those violations became
failure-to-appear citations when
court dates went unheeded.
"I had to go to each individual
judge to get the charges all

But she would again sec what
her friend would do with her
name, her record and her life. And
this time it would be far more seri-
ous than a traffic ticket.
Bernalillo County sheriffs
deputies arrested a woman June 18
on charges of auto theft and con-
spiracy in connection with a stolen
blue Chevy pickup.
The woman gave her name as
Meriyha McAfee. She was booked,
fingerprinted and catalogued
under McAfee's name into a
national database known as the
Identification System, or AFIS.
Those fingerprints forever
entangled McAfee in the criminal-
"When she was fingerprinted,
she gave an alias that will remain a
part of her life, regardless of what
her real name is said Barbara

Case against squirrels won
SHREWSBURY, England (AP)
A vacationing couple whose house
was trashed by a rampaging squirrel
have won their battle to have their
insurance company cover the more
than $8,250 in damages.
Saga Insurance originally told
Desmond and Veronica Green that
the squirrel, which was thought to
have entered the house via the
chimney, was classified as "ver-
min" and thus not covered under
But the company reconsidered
after newspaper stories about the
case, issuing a statement Thursday
explaining that "Saga has never
before encountered a claim involv-
ing a rogue squirrel
While the Greens were away
from their home in Shropshire,
England, in September, the
squirrel broke a number of objects,
carpets and gnawed at five win-
dow frames that now must be

the house by a neighbor after it set

MANITOWOC, Wis. (AP) A man �nnot
father any more children, unless he shows he
can support seven children he has already
fathered, a judge said in a ruling criticized by
the American Civil Liberties Union Saturday.
David Oakley, 32, has children ranging in
age from one to 13. Over the years Oakley has
failed to pay all or parts of court-ordered child
support for their maintenance, authorities said.
Oakley has a total of nine children, is
divorced and also fathered children out of wed-
lock, according to court documents. A sentence
handed down against Oakley last week
involved seven children fathered through four
women, Manitowoc County Circuit Court
Judge Fred Hazlewood said Saturday.
Oakley pleaded no contest to three felony
counts of failing to pay support as a repeat crim-
inal offender. Four other counts were dismissed
and read into the court record.
Hazlewood last week ordered Oakley to
spend up to three years in prison, consecutive
to a three-year term he is serving from
Sheboygan County for intimidating a witness.
In addition, Hazlewood placed Oakley on pro-
bation for five years.
As a condition of probation, Hazlewood
ordered Oakley to have no more children
unless he can demonstrate he is meeting finan-
cial obligations for his existing offspring.
When , told of the probation condition
Saturday, Chris Ahmuty, executive director of
the American Civil Liberties Union of
Wisconsin, said it was "entirely inappropriate,
because the right to make decisions about
whether to have children is a fundamental
"What's to say that the defendant in this
case won't turn his life around and be able to
support his children in the future Ahmuty
said. "He shouldn't have to prove that to the
judge before exercising a fundamental right"
Oakley also must maintain a full-time job
and comply with child-support orders, and
spend an additional 90 days in jail.
Hazlewood said Saturday he could not com-
ment on the case because Oakley could file an
"He could appeal the sentence. He could

Nobody is perfect and only a few
teams can say they had a perfect
season, but most teams hope to
improve their achievements from
the year before.
1998 saw ECU men's and
women's track teams reach new
heights in conference and national
competition. Last year's men's
team dominated the CAA's sprint
events, while the women were
among the conference's most con-
sistent teams. This season most of
each team's talent is back and both
teams are ready to improve on last
year's successes and reach new,
maybe higher heights again.

For the good news, Damon
Davis, an Ail-American sprinter for
the Pirates in the Spring of 1997,
also played tailback on the football
team. In the tall of 1997 Davis

his time to football. Two years
later, Davis has returned to the
track. Also back with the track

in the 400. Along with Ingram, the
nuclei of the champion relay teams
remain intact. Returning contribu-
i. � include Koi Ibrahim, au,
Monroe, Christia Rey and the
Fuquay's Britt Cox.
The team looks to improve on
last year's third place finish in the
conference and their sixth place
finish in the IC4A.
The women's team brings back
most of the talent from last year's
squad. The wealth of experienced
talent on the team has head coach
"Choo" Justice thinking big.
"I think it's the best team we've
ever had. We have as much if not
more talent than we've ever had.
We've got excellent leadership
Justice said. "We've got several
individuals who could break some
The squad retains most of its
CAA and ECAC Champion 4x100-
meter relay team as well as the
incomparable throwing tandem of
Margaret Clayton and her older sis-
ter Michelle. After being red-shirt-
ed last year, Michelle Clayton
returns as one of the country's best
"Michelle is head and shoulders
above everybody else and should
have a big impact Justice said.
Also returning are sprinters
Rasheca Barrow, Kai Eason, Nicky
Coins and Kiona Kirkpatrick. The
Pirates also return hurdler Marshari
Williams and the versatile Saundra
Teel. Justice has big plans for this
"We hope to put it all together
in March and have a shot at the
conference and by May have a shot
at being one of the five or ten top
teams on the East Coast Justice
He won't have to wait too long
to see how his team stacks up
against the best. This weekend the
women's team and part of the
men's team travel to Blacksburg,
VA to the Virginia Tech Invitational
; i compete against some or the l- p
teams in the country.
"We are going to get stiff com-
petition in the events we excel at
from schools like South Carolina,
Georgia Tech, Georgetown and
Ohio State Carson said.
"This is a brutal meet It's the
twenty best teams east of the
Mississippi. It will be a real test
We could go there and have an
awesome performance and not
place as high. It will be a measuring
stick for us Justice said.

This year's Pirate baseball team

be focused on the goal of reaching the
big game. That game is the NCAA

Salargo said. "Everyone stays focused

against Colieg? of Charleston
Greenville waters seem to have
become a nightmare for the swim-
mers of the College of Charleston.
They were handed another
tough loss by the Pirates to travel
back to Charleston with an all-time
record of 0-7 for both the men's
and women's teams.
The men's team won its fourth
straight meet 142-93, without
nationally ranked swimmer Adam
Gaffcy. The women continued to
roll this season with a 158-88 victo-
ry, who won without having seven
The men won every event of
the day except the 400-yard
freestyle relay, which they swam as
an exhibition. Leading the way for
the Pirates (4-4, 0-4) were juniors
Matt Jabs, Mike Julian and sopho-
more Claes Lindgren, winning two
events a piece. Leading the way for
the men was Julian, swimming the
second-fastest time of the year in
the 1,000-yard freestyle (9:57.38)
before going on to win the 500-yard
freestyle. Jabs picked up wins in
the 50-yard freestyle and the 100-
yard freestyle. Lindgren finally
won two events in the same meet
for the first time in his short ECU
career. He picked up victories in
the 200-yard individual medley
(1:58.06) and the 200-yard back-
"We as a team were really tired
coming off our training in Florida
Julian said. "Coach pushed us a lot
harder this year to get us ready for
After losing the the first four
meets of the year, the men seem to
be having momentum going into
the CAA Championship.
"The team was really down on
itself early in the year Lindgren
said. "After winnipg at the
Davidson meet, we started getting
our confidence back. That win let
us know we could win and has car-
ried us to where we are now
Richmond will be coming to
town this weekend. The men hold
a 22-0 all-time record over the
"Adam Gaffcy will be back
this weekend said Rick Kobe,
ECU swim coach. "He sat out this
past weekend to rest a sore shoul-
der. With him back, we should
