In an interview with the "Daily

"I wanted him in particular because he's

"This play, I think, will reawaken some

Comprehensive diabetes center opens at PCMH
Eastern Carolina receives
help for diabetics
Amy Sheridan
news editor
The Board of Directors of University Health
Systems (UHS) of Eastern Carolina voted to
move ahead with plans to establish a com-
prehensive diabetes center that will bring
the diabetes resource of Pitt County
Memorial Hospital, the ECU School of
Medicine, and a local private physician prac-
tice together in one unit.
The center will have three main goals.
The first goal will be to provide comprehen-
sive care to all eastern North Carolinians
with the disease in an effective manner
through service, education and research.
Another goal for the diabetes center will be
to begin a regional diabetes registry that will
be able to track how well diabetics respond
to treatment. The final goal will be to serve
as a resource for all providers of diabetes
care and diabetes self-management educa-
tion in eastern North Carolina.
Dr. Michael Pfeifer, professor of medi-
cine and head of the endocrinology section
at ECU, will be the medical director of the
new center.
The long-term goal is for the center to
have a diabetic building to serve patients
and their physicians in eastern North
Carolina; however, at this point an appoint-
ed board is working on the strategic plan and
the budget.
The center will concentrate on providing
services in Pitt County. Then, the center
will branch out to UHS hospitals in Tarboro,
Edenton, Windsor and Ahoskie. Staff at the
center also will help develop a disease man-
agement plan for people with diabetes to
make sure they are receiving the proper care
they need at the correct time.
When the center first opens, the facility
will be an umbrella organization over the
services that will continue to be in various
places. Eventually, UHS hopes to build a
facility to house the center.
"The idea of the diabetic center is to
make it easier for all physicians to take care
of patients the way that they want to
Pfeifer said.
One of the initial goals the center wishes
to reach is for all diabetes patients in eastern
North Carolina to follow a health regiment
called CENSE. CENSE is an acronym for
Control (blood sugar, diet) Early treatment
No Smoking Education (diet, diabetes,
"The new diabetes center will make it
easier for doctor's to implement the
CENSE regiment that all doctors follow
with diabetic patients Pfeifer said. "This
center is not made to take away patients
from doctors
Some other aspirations for the diabetes
center is to implement disease management

CAMP LEJEUNE � Corps Capt.
Richard Ashby was not qualified
to fly the type ,of advanced, low-
level training mission that resulted
in the accidental deaths of 20 skiers
in the Italian Alps, a flight expert
said Tuesday.
Lt. Col. James Brubaker gave
his opinion about Ashby's abilities
during testimony in Ashby's court-
martial for his part in the accident
Feb. 3,1998. Prosecutors say Ashby
was intentionally flying too low and
too fast when the right wing of his
EA-6B Prowler snapped the cables
carrying a gondola across a valley at
a ski resort in northern Italy. He is
accused of involuntary manslaugh-
ter and other crimes.
Ashby, 31, who was deployed
from Marine Corps Air Station
Cherry Point to the air base at
Aviano, has been described by
many as a gifted pilot, a natural in
the cockpit.
Brubaker is a longtime flight
instructor who never worked with
Ashby. But after reviewing acci-
dent reports, witness accounts and
the training histories of the crew
members, and after taking a heli-
copter ride through the valley
where the accident happened,
Brubaker said he concluded that
Ashby and his crew should never
have gone on that kind of training
While Ashby had many hours of
flight experience in the Prowler at
higher altitudes, Brubaker said, he
was not adept at maneuvering the
bulky aircraft at low levels in moun-
tainous terrain. Ashby, who was
scheduled to return to the United
States the day after the accident,
had not been on a low-level flight
for seven months.
As the pilot, responsible for the
safety of his three crewmen and the
$53 million aircraft, Ashby should
have ordered a change in the mis-
sion, Brubaker said. He should
have reduced the
difficulty of the flight by drop-
ping the low-level maneuvers and
concentrating 'on other training
Ashby is expected to testify that
he did not have enough recent
experience at low-level flight to be
able to tell his plane had fallen well
below the 1,000-foot minimum alti-
tude U.S. pilots recognized in Italy.
An optical illusion made him think
he was much higher than the 360
feet at which he struck the cables,
his attorneys say.
Lt. Col. Alex Torrance, a flight
training commander and six-year
cockpit veteran of the Prowler, also
was ordered to help gather evi-
dence for the government, an
assignment he was reluctant to
accept. At first, he said, he thought
the Marine Corps was unfairly pros-
ecuting the crew.
But he, too, said he eventually
concluded that the crew had failed
to carry out their duties to assure
the safety of the flight. He took
exception to defense claims that
the men did not realize how low
the jet was flying.
It may be difficult to discern the
difference between 500 feet and
600 feet in altitude when traveling
at 515 knots, he granted, "but you
know you're not at 1,000 foot
Earlier in the day, Capt. William
L. Raney, who was in the back seat
of the Prowler when the accident
occurred, testified for the govern-
ment under a grant of immunity.
Raney said he had taken a still cam-
era, a Christmas gift, on the flight.
He said he pointed the camera out

launched into orbit
Tuesday aboard a single Delta II
The rocket lifted off before day-
break after 11 mostly weather-relat-
ed delays.
It released the Air Force's
Advanced Research and Global
Observation Satellite, or Argos;
South Africa's Sunsat spacecraft;
and Denmark's Orsted.
Sunsat was created by engineer-
ing students in South Africa, pri-
marily to show that they could do it.
Orsted will map Earth's magnetic
field. Argos was designed to con-
duct research on military and space
Though small, the 130-pound
satellite from South Africa and the
136-pound one from Denmark rep-
resent those nations' entry into the
club of spacefaring countries.
Argos, by contrast, weighs 3 tons
and is loaded down with research
Sunsat was also symbolic of
South Africa's return to collabora-
tion with the international science
community after being isolated
during the apartheid era.
The repeated delays had
become a source of jokes in
Denmark. On Danish postal
stamps, however, the satellite has
been circling Earth since January.

Personal responsibility helps
Bills 'nickel and dime' us
ir; i
c� -

It's not so much that I cannot
afford these bills. It just ticks
me off that I have to pay
money for something I should
get anyway.
That's it. I am finally going
insane from all of the bills that I get.
Along with most ECU students, I
am seriously concerned about the
erroneous charges occurring on
these bills. It's not so much that I
cannot afford these bills. It just ticks
me off that I have to pay money for
something I should get anyway.
First, the touch-tone charge.
They charge you a dollar for that
annoying sound that you get when
you pick up the phone. Then there
is a line access charge, which is
usually five bucks. They are
charging you for the privilege to
pick up a phone to pay more money
for a phone call. They even charge
you 20 bucks to get your phone cut
on, when they should be happy
enough that you are using their
service at all.
I can see their view. Profit, profit,
?rofit. Well this is how profit works,
bu work, and are paid less than
what you are worth, so you can go
out and buy products for more than
what they are worth. The phone
companies are outrageous. When
you go to McDonald's, you don't
have to pay the person at the
counter an extra five bucks to make
your sandwich for you. They just
give you the burger at the normal
price, and you're happy. But
somehow the phone industry feels
that since they are a public
commodity, they can just charge
whatever they want, even if it is
erroneous and unjustified.
And then there are the power
bills. If you were like me, my
electric bill last month was at least
40 bucks higher than anything we
had in the summer, and we had the
AC blowing night and day. I mean,
what the heck? We were even gone
for a week! I think there's
something fishy going on.
And speaking about out-of-
control prices, let's talk about soft
drink companies. A 20-ounce drink
costs almost a dollar, whereas a 2-
litcr runs about 80 cents. Drinks
like Pepsi are about a cent's worth
of water, sugar and coloring. I don't
drink soft drinks hardly anymore,
because it disgusts me that these
people are making a 10,000 percent
profit off me every rime I drink one.

This week at East Carolina
University is Sexual Assault
Awareness Week. Its purpose is of
course to heighten the campus'
awareness to the problem of sexual
assault. Of course, it is important to
generate concern about sexual
crimes, but it is also primarily, if not
entirely important to prevent
further assaults from occurring.
This prevention motivation should
be the most prominent facet of this
week's campaign against sexual
Many clear measures are taken
and are continually evaluated here
at ECU to deter "stranger" rape.
Hence, the lighting around
campus, emergency posts, hot
lines, etc. These measures are very
needed, but they often overshadow
an even larger problem in regards to
sexual assault, namely
acquaintance rape.
Is acquaintance rape a problem?
It's hard to really know because
nine out of 10 are never reported.
This lack of reporting is due to
various reasons. Among these
reasons is the simple fact that if the
girl knows the guy then she is
probably amiable with him and
doesn't want to cause any
problems. Her confusion about the
whole occurrence along with
broken trust and security issues also
plays a major role in her not coming
So, how does one reasonably
prevent this from happening to
them? A very important approach
to this issue is never brought up
because of its political incorrectness
and implications about female and
male roles in regards to sex. Most
unwanted sexual encounters with
an acquaintance in a college setting
is due to the influence of alcohol
andor drugs. This drug and
alcohol factor alone poses a very
significant slant on consent issues
within such an encounter. Basically
what happens is a girl gets taken
advantage of and blames the guy
because he violated her, and it is all
recounted in some hazy
recollection. This is a natural and
usually correct reaction by the
female but an extremely important
aspect of these encounters is either
overlooked or dismissed.
Though this is very unpopular, it
needs to be stated: Females need
to take care of themselves. Under
the influence of alcohol, so many
things go op and so many signals
are given and missed that it
becomes impossible for anyone�
especially a guy�to muddle
through them and make a sound
decision or evaluation of any
situation. This is definitely not to
say that acquaintance rape is in any
way, shape, or form the female's
fault or that a female deserves it or
should it expect it if she drinks, but
after it happens who is at fault is not
as important as the fact that it
happened and the female will have
to deal with it for the rest of her life.
The blame game doesn't resolve
the trauma she had to endure or
will have to work out in the future.
That is why it is of the utmost
importance for women to take care
of themselves when they are
drinking. The guys just aren't
going to do it for you�not because
they are particularly evil�bj
because they are not exacdy I

Major does students disservice
While other schools are
pouring money into their
broadcast programs, ECU is
choking ours to death.
The past couple of weeks have
informed me of an ongoing saga
within my major. More specifically
the B.S. in Communication
Degree of which I hope to
graduate with soon. Basically the
degree deals with the broadcast
media. It is supposed to teach
students about television and
devices used for television
programs. There is a strong
interest in this field and the
number of students in the
broadcast programs reflects that.
There are so many communication
majors that waiting lists are created
about a week before registration
even begins. ECU also seems like
an ideal school for this program
because of the number of local
stations in the area that the
students can work with. However,
the "powers that be" dislike the
broadcast program immensely.
The "powers that be" are, of
course, the administration and I
believe that they do not care about
my education at all.
OK, pop quiz hotshots: the B.S.
in Communication is found in
which department? If you
answered the Department of
Communication, you are wrong.
The correct response is the
Department of Broadcasting,
Library Studies and Educational
Technology. If it seems out of
place it's because it is. The
broadcast program was thrown out
of the Communication
Department years ago by the
administration for what is referred
to as a "civil war Besides being
ousted from our rightful
department, I have heard that
there is little or no budget for the
broadcast program. While other
schools are pouring money into
their broadcast programs, ECU is"
choking ours to death. Schools like
UNC-Wilmington are receiving
funds to build digital studios but
we are stuck with aging, outdated
and broken equipment.
I know many departments mayj
not have money, but how about, a
donation? This is what has upset �
me the most. I was told that a
couple of years ago, before 1
enrolled, that a wealthy man�
wanted to donate over a million
dollars to the broadcast program ;
Somebody in the administration �
decided the money should be used7
for the nursing school. The donator. ;
refused to give the money to any
other program than broadcasting
The person in administration
decided that ECU did not want
the money. What logic is being
used here? When somebody wants
to give you over a million dollars I
believe the correct response is yes. i
Of course, I don't have the
education or intelligence
understand our administration

Students plagued
by midterm anxiety
Student sits in front of Rawl between classes to study and make the
Counselors give advice
on surviving stress
Phillip Gnus
Midterm alert! That time of year
has rolled around once again, and
ECU students are finding them-
selves filled with stress. Whether
they are worrying about making the
grade or entering graduate school,
students should be aware of the
campus services that can help them
through this troublesome time.
According to the Center for
Counseling and Student
Development, the number of stres-
sors on a student can increase dur-
ing the midterm.
"Different trends and issues that
we see during this time of year
include students coming in with
feelings of sadness and depres-
sion said Dr. Al Smith, assistant
director of the Center for
Counseling and Student
Development. "Also, there are
sophomores who are having to
choose majors, people trying to get
into grad school and different types
of relationship stress
There are many ways that stu-
dents can cope with any overload-
ing stress in their lives. Time man-
agement can be one important skill
to learn in decreasing stress and
increasing academic performance.
"Students need to realize that
each course requires a special
amount of studying. They wouldn't
be able to study for a math exam
the day before, for instance Smith
By learning how to prioritize
their time, students can maintain
the balance between study time
and leisure.
"A couple of months ahead, I try
to see what exams I have coming
up so I can plan for them said
Denise Vincent, sophomore.
Some students seem to believe
"If a student can develop cer-
tain study aids and mnemonic
devices, they will go a long
way in their test taking
Don Joyner
Assistant Dean
that if they start studying too early
for a test that they will forget all the
information they learn. This is not
true. The more exposure a student
gets to the information, the more
chance they will retain it.
"I try to space all of my exams
apart and study well beforehand
said Raheela Yunus, sophomore.
Test-taking strategies are also
necessary in preparing for exams.
"Students need to develop a
strategy for taking a test, just like a
tennis player uses a strategy when
playing tennis said Don Joyner,
assistant dean at the Office of
Undergraduate Studies.
Students who feel that they are
falling behind in a course are
encouraged to read the summaries
at the end of each chapter. It is also
helpful to preview the textbook by
scanning the headings in the chap-
ters, as well as any italicized or
boldfaced words.
"If a student can develop certain
study aids and mnemonic devices,
they will go a long way in their test
taking Joyner said.
Midterms burn out can usually
be attributed to students' pes-
simism and negativity in their
"Students just need to learn
how to relax and put things in per-
spective Smith said. "Meeting
with a counselor on a one-to-one
basis can help them learn how to
think optimistically
Students are warned against
resorting to caffeine pills for late-
night cram sessions.
"This is the worst thing they can
do. After taking the pills, a person
will come down during their test
and their mind will become very
foggy Joyner said.
As long as students keep their
stress levels low, and maintain good
study habits, the mid-term burn
out should fade away.
The Center for Counseling and
Student Development will be pro-
viding time management work-
shops March 23 at 11 a.m. and
March 29 at 3:30 p.m. Both will
take place in Wright Auditorium.
For more information on other
workshops, students are encour-
aged to call 328-6661.

Every student anticipates the day
when they graduate and land that
great job making big bucks. But
few students realize the importance
a solid, well-written resume has on
finding a job. Before you start to
panic and scream, "But I don't

assured that help does exist. The
center for Career Services offers
students and alumni from all majors
assistance with finding jobs, intern-
ships and writing resumes.
What your resume says about
you, or even what it doesn't say, can
have a tremendous impact on your
chances of getting a good job.
Often, this is the first contact with a
prospective employer.

it is never too early to begin com-
piling a resume.

Manual vehicle 'sticks' it to carjackers
Aiken, S.C. (AP) - A trio of alleged
carjackers were captured after
being foiled by the car's stick shift,
police said.
A 19-year-old man told Aiken
County deputies he was beaten
with his cellular phone Monday
night and pulled out of his car by
three men who had followed him.
But the attacker who hopped into
the driver's seat couldn't figure out
how to work the stick, sheriffs Lt
Michael Frank said.
Instead, the men allegedly stole
the victim's CD player and cell
phone, got back into their
Chevrolet and fled.

Pennsylvania bridges designed to salt themselves with liquid spray
IRWIN, Pa. (AP) - If everything

Before snow falls on any of the
overpasses, weather sensors will
anticipate the precipitation and
spray the roads with magnesium
chloride, which is essentially liquid
The spray should save time for
road crews and keep the roadways
clear for drivers. A bridge will
freeze faster than a road because air
passes both above and beneath the
The Pennsylvania bridges are
the only three of their kind in the
United States, said Mike Strobel,
who spent Monday putting the fin-
ishing touches on the U.S. Route

miles southeast of Pittsburgh.
"This is the future said
Strobel, manager of the project for

If the sensors and low-lying
salters work, Pennsylvania
Department of Transportation offi-
cials plan to use them around the
state. The Route 30 equipment

A bridge on State Route 28 in
Allegheny County has had the

Work on a U.S. Route 6 bridge in
Warren County should be com-

Strobel said.
The equipment for all three

Transportation Department
spokesman Steve Chizmar.
Cindy Holderbaum, owner of
Bob's Service Center in Irwin, dri-

She hasn't noticed any accidents or
delays because of ice.

Strobel said many school buses

Road officials decided to test
the technology in western

freezing weather than the eastern

The handful of other U.S.

Pennsylvania bridges are unique
because they work without human
help, he said.
One set of sensors tracks air

direction, humidity and other
weather data, said Chizmar. Other
sensors measure the pavement
temperature and calculate howl
much salt is needed.
The technology has been used
for years in parts of Europe, said
Strobel, whose company is based in 1
Granges-Paccot, Switzerland.
The spraying might have some j
positive side effects. Water in
bridge cracks can form potholes as
it freezes and melts. The liquid salt
will keep the ice from forming.
In addition, the liquid salt worTt
damage cars, Chizmar said. Hard
salt can nick or rust cars, but trie

He handed a teller a holdup
note written on the back of a per-

his hand in the purse while the
teller read the note and the name.
The note asked for $20 bills but,
when the teller told him she didn't
have any in her drawer, he
snatched the note and left on a
bicycle, Caraway said.
Even before investigators

Pirates facing ODU Friday night
No. 2 seed serves as
first round opponent
Eric Couch
After a disappointing loss on
Saturday, the Pirates will have to
make a run for the NCAA berth from
the seventh seed in the CAA brack-
ECU (13-13, 7-9) will travel to
Richmond Virginia and begin their
post-season play on Friday with sec-
ond-seeded Old Dominion. ODU
leads the all-time scries between the
two teams 29-10, but in tournament
play the Pirates have a 1-0 edge.
The tournament win over ODU
was a 1993 CAA championship game
in which the Pirates won and to go on
to the NCAA tournament. The
Pirates have a cumulative record of 5-
12 in tournament play, and hope to
improve on that record this weekend.
This year, ECU split the season's
regular-season games with Jeff
Capel's Monarchs, each team win-
ning on the road. The win for the
Pirates was their first in Norfolk, Va.
since 1979, ending a 20-year drought.
ECU beat the Monarchs 67-62 in
Norfolk, but that was after ODU
handed the Pirates a 54-51 loss in
Minges Coliseum back on Jan. 13.
In the loss on Saturday to UNC-
W, a bright spot in the clouds was
Neil Punt's best game of the season
with 15 points, going 7-8 from the
"We've got to step it up this
week Punt said after the game on
The Pirates will definitely have
to step up their play after shooting a
dismal 35 percent from the floor on
Saturday. Rebounding has also been
a problem as of late for ECU. The
Pirates have been out-rebounded in
five of the past six games by an
average of 36 to 27. But, earlier this
season they were much better on
the boards and thus they out-
rebounded their opponents in 18
out of 26 games this season.
Head coach Joe Dooley sounds
confident after the game on
Saturday, despite the loss.
"I don't see how we can come
out like that again Dooley said.
"We have to just try to put that
behind us. I've got faith that these
guys will respond on Friday
As for the rest of the teams in the
tournament,William & Mary and
American are the eight and nine
seeds, and will play in the Play-In
game tonight at 7 p.m. The winner
of that game will go on to play top-
seeded George Mason at noon on
Friday. The other afternoon game
will feature fourth-seeded James
Madison and fifth-seeded UNC-W.
ECU and ODU will begin the
evening games at 6 p.m. on Friday,
and just after that game third-seed-
ed Richmond and sixth-seeded

Hendrick leads
final swim meet

Athletes have strong
Records arc made to be bro-
ken, and ECU swimmers
crushed 14 of them over the
weekend at the CAA
Conference Championships
in Charlotte.
The Pirates swam strong
and when the tournament
ended on Saturday, both
teams posted impressive
times with the men placing
fifth and the women third
overall. Freshman Amy
Hendrick led the way for the
Pirates, winning the 100-
metcr backstroke with a time
of 56.56. Hendrick's victory is
the first CAA title for ECU in
four years. The time is the
fastest in the history of the
CAA according to head coach
Rick Kobe and only five one-
hundredths of a second off the
NCAA qualifying mark.
"I actually didn't know
about the record until my par-
ents told me after the meet
Hendrick said. "I had lots of
fun swimming the event and
my team was there to support
and encourage me
Hendrick was one of many
Pirates to set new records dur-
ing this Championship week-
end. ECU junior Hollic Butler
set a new varsity record in the
200-meter freestyle with a
time of 1:53.49, while Dana
Fuller added new freshman
and varsity records in the 1650
free. Senior Allison Holland
played a key role in the
women's success, shattering
the 200IM and 200 back-
stroke varsity records.
Freshrnan power gave the
women their strength as
Courtney Foster added a new
record in the 50 free. Foster's
win brought the total ECU
freshman records set at this
event to five.
"It's one ,of the fastest
meets the women have ever
swam, especially with all the
injuries Kobe said. "Allison
Holland would definitely win
the outstanding swimmer
award if I had to give it"
ECU's archrival, the
Seahawks of UNC-W finished
first in the women's overall
team competition followed by
James Madison. Women's
team members arc excited
about their performance and

The ECU men's team was
equally impressive as Claes
Lindgren advanced to the
individual finals with a time of
1:54.84 in the 200 IM.
Lindgren placed seventh in
that event and went on to win
the consolation finals. Junior
Adam Gaffcy, who has been
nationally ranked in two
events this season, finished
sixth in the 500 free. Pirate
senior Richard Chen reached
the final round, while ECU's
Matt Jabs was the men's high
scorer. Jabs placed fourth in
the 50 free and grabbed ninth
in the 200 free.
"My head was really into
the meet and I was shocked at

history, prepare for big meets
Throwers expected
to bring mote success
The ECU men's and women's
track teams prepared themselves
for this weekend's big meets and
got a preview of their conference
rivals at last weekend's George
Mason Invitational.
The ECU men looked at last
weekend's meet as a chance to get
some experience for some of the
lesser known runners.
"It was more of a work meet
said Bill Carson, ECU head men's
track coach. "We used it to work
the kids who don't get to run
In addition to using the meet as
an opportunity to use some of the
less experienced runners, the meet
was also a chance to get an early
look at ECU's conference competi-
"We should be headed for
fourth or third in the conference. I
don't know if we will sweep the
sprints again, but it gives us a good
picture of things Carson said.
ECU got strong performances
from their runners in the 200-meter
dash. James Alexander placed sec-
ond in the 200 and qualified for the
IC4As, while teammates Darrick
Ingram and Darius Chisholm fin-
ished 14th and 15th respectively.
In the 400, Ingram placed sec-
ond and ECU's Darren Tuitt fin-
ished 11th.
Lyn Stewart won the 500 in a
time of 1:04.51. Fellow sprinter,
Vaughn Monroe, placed fifth in the
Brian Beil had a personal record
in the 800 with a time of 1:54.86.
He finished 11th. Justin England
finished 11th in the mile run.
The women's team got strong
performances from their throwers.
Michelle Clayton won two events
and fellow throwers Margaret
Clayton, Crystal Frye and Jen
Prevatt all had good showings.
Michelle Clayton finished first
among college competitors in the
weight throw.
"I was very excited with my
throw Michelle Clayton said.
"But I still know I have a good cou-
ple of feet left
Margaret Clayton placed third
while Frye placed fourth and
Prevatt placed fifth.
In the shot put, Michelle
Clayton finished first followed by

The dancing of the Pure Gold
Dance Team was the only perfor-
mance that deserved the big crowd
at Minges Saturday night.
But, over 7,000 people didn't
come just to get entertained by the
dance team that night. They came
to see Alico Dunk, in his last home
game as a Pirate, lead the team in
getting their revenge against their
rival Seahawks from Wilmington.
Everybody was ready, except
the players. The play of the day was
made by ECU's Neil Punt, acci-
dentally or ironically with his back
to the basket. Don't get me wrong
here, he deserved that shot,
because he really played a good
game that night.
The rest of the
team , leadership
qualities included,
couldn't convince
me and most of
the other fans.
it seems, would be the keyword to
describe the Pirate season so far.
Big upsets, like the win at Old
Dominion were followed by losses
at home, like the one on Saturday.
Speaking of ODU, who beat the
Seahawks in their regular season
finale at home 63-53, they are the
next opponent for Dooley's team
coming this Friday at the first
round in the conference tourna-
ment. If the seventh-seed Pirates
can upset the second-seed
Monarchs, they could silence all
their critics, including myself.
Furthermore, they could advance
in the tournament, beat Richmond
again on Saturday, and ultimately
beat the Seahawks in the final
game on Sunday night and advance
to the NCAA.
Anyway, in my opinion, the key
to a win over the Monarchs is
Evaldas Joeys, in my opinion. By
averaging 13 points and 53
rebounds since his return from the
injury list, he has been the most
consistent player for ECU this sea-
son. Another big factor is rebound-
ing, where the team started out
really well earlier this season, but
slacked toward the end. The
Pirates have been out-rebounded
in five of the past six games but, all
in all, still beat 18 of their 26 oppo-
nents in rebound figures.
Nevertheless, another basket-
ball season is almost history and the
team still has a chance to finish the
season on a strong note by showing
us that this wasn't the real Pirate
team we saw at Minges on

Cowan off the bag this week with a
$1 million first prize on the line.
For the second time in three
weeks, Woods' popular and proven
caddie - a Winslow, Maine, native -
will be staying home. In his place
is Bryon Bell, a 23-year-old college
graduate who is trying to get in to
medical school.
"It's a chance to help put a guy

Cowan was the longtime cad-
die for Peter Jacobsen, then took
Woods' bag when he turned pro
after winning his third straight
U.S. Amateur. Woods won twice
in just eight starts, then soared to
the top of golf by winning the
masters and three other tourna-
Woods said he's not having any
problems with Cowan, and said
Cowan didn't mind taking the
week off.
"He's been taken pretty good
care of Woods, said.
Woods has won nearly $6 mil-
lion alone in the PGA Tour, mean-
ing Cowan has probably earned
close to $600,000 in less than three
years as his caddie. Bell and Woods
have been friends since junior high
school, and they played high
school golf together in Cypress,
Calif. He recendy graduated from
the University of California-San
Diego and has applications out to
several medical schools.
That Woods would use a friend
as a caddie in a major event is sur-
prising, although Woods says Bell
has a good track record. For one
thing, Bell was on the bag in the
Buick Invitational, when Woods
eagled the last hole for a two-
stroke win over Billy Ray Brown
and his first victory in nine months.
Bell also caddied for him when
Woods won the Southern

earned $486,000 for winning the

years of school at about $150,000.

Tl �MiriJinn�ni (SGA) ts the itffis�igtap:vice for the students of East Carolina University. The members of SGA are elected by
their peers to serve in the best interest of the students. The goal of the 1998-1999 executive council was just that, to serve the students interests no matter
the cost. We have fought many fights, won some and lost some, but we hopefully have been able to leave this place better than we found it.
One of the most exciting programs that SGA has created this year, with the assistance of the Department of Leadership Development, is the Walter L
Williams Leadership Scholarship. This scholarship rewards incoming freshmen that have exhibited leadership ability during high school. The program will
promote leadership training and other aspects of being an effective leader. Due to the lack of such a scholarship, SGA decided to pursue the program in an
effortto Mian unclaimed niche in scholarship programs.
Later this month, the SGA executive council wilt represent East Carolina at a rational SGA conference in College Station, TX. Representatives from
hundreds of campuses across the country vM be in attendance. We are extremely excited about the opportunity to attend such a prestigious conference an
effort to learn innovative ideas that will assist in our quest here at our university.

CD Review
Patrick McMahon
I'm sorry, I just will not do it. Nope.
Uh-uh. Nada. I will not waste your
oh-so-precious time this week
reviewing a CD from a band that you
have n't heard of and don't care about
No, 1 feel bound by my high-paying
(not really) job here at The
Fountainheaii to show you the light
and expose you to musk that you
may already possess and just forgot
you had. I want to make you fondly
remember the album's greatness. So,
instead of writing a review of a new
CD, I am going to go out on a limb
and review an old one, one with flair
and gumption. One with a naked
monkey adorned by a halo on the
We can all remember way back in the
day when fluffy pop music was cool
and we thought Poison was just the
greatest thing since sliced bread. Ah,
the ignorance of youth. I mean, with
bands like The Escape Club singing
horrifically insignificant songs like
"Wild, Wild West it is easy to over-
look the really classic albums of the
Such is the case with the ultra-cool
1989 album Doolittk by the Pixies.
The disc contains 15 songs that actu-
ally rock, not the watered down
sy nth-pop that was blaring on the
radios of America's youth. It was an
album that was literally at least 10
years ahead of its time. If released
today, the album would be right
alongside discs from Fugazi, Sonic
Youth and maybe even Liz Phair. It
was actually, if I dare say this about
anything emerging from the 80s, a
good album.
Every song is a possible classic.
Singable without being cheesy, hard
without giving you a headache, it is
truly a work of art. Standouts on the
album are few because each and
every song shines in its own little
' way.
The CD begins on a great note with
the songentitled"Debaserf The
intro leads you to believe that it is
just another mellow jam but when
the vocals kick in, you are grabbed by
the throat and taken to a land of pure
rock adrenaline. The song takes on a
menacing tone without turning off
your interest Another really good
song is the simple, yet driven song
"Wave of Mutilation I know it
sounds a little too Manson-esque but
it really is a floating, operatic blend of
scratchy guitars and light but steady
drum work. Songs like these make
me wonder where our values were
back then. I mean, how can a frivo-
lous song like "With Every Beat of
My Heart" by Taylor Dayne (don't
even pretend you don't remember
that song) get more airplay in 1989
that any song from this album?! It
just isn't fair.
As far as singling out the best tracks,
II do it like this: there are 15 songs
and 111 put down the track numbers
for only the best songs. They are: 1-
They all kick ass (sorry, I had to put
in at least one bad word.)
In other words, if you have the CD,
break it out and relive what you may
or may not have forgotten and if you
don't have the disc, put down your
"Disco Biscuits" or Trinket" albums,
get off your lazy rear end, run to CD
Alley and get some real music.

Bring plenty of tissues for "Message in a Bottle"
Ryan Kennemur
Movie person
It's every woman's fantasy to find the
one man out there that is emotional-
ly and physically (albeit balding)
perfect. The one that only comes to
them in dreams or when they are
kissing the man that they are cur-
rently with. Well, apparently this can
happen, and it does in "Message in a
Bottle the newest weeper to hit the
silver screen.
A journalist named Theresa (played
by Robin Wright-Penn) goes to New
England to drop off her son with her
ex-husband. While there, she goes
jogging down the beaches, and hap-
pens upon a bottle with note inside
in which a sailor named "G" says all
grades of sweet and caring things to
an obviously deceased "true love
Theresa takes this note back to
Chicago and shares it with all of her
cubicle-mates, who chip in their help
to find this "G" character.
She quickly finds out, through com-
puter-tracking tedinology and the
help of others, that the man lives on
the Outer Banks of North Carolina
(ifs really filmed in Maine, though),
so she toddles on down there under
the front that she is going to write a
story about him. She meets him and
finds out that his name is Garrett

flips out, but his love for the new
woman in his life allows him to look
past this incident.
Theresa goes back to Chicago with
the story that there isn't a story at all,
only a poor man whose wife died.
Garrett then returns to his work on
designing his own boat a project
that he had put aside when his wife
became ill A few weeks later, Garrett
flies to Chicago for a visit During
this time, Garrett glances in one of
Theresa's dresser drawers to find the
notes that he had written, and feel-
ing that he'd been lied to, goes home
to the Outer Banks. If I told you any-
thing else, the whole movie would be
ruined. I will tell you this. The end-
ing is not the standard romantic
drama fare.
"Message in a Bottle" is a pretty
good movie for what it is, namely a
tear-jerker. The acting is good
enough, especially Paul Newman as
Garrerfs cantankerous father, Dodge.
Costner has needed something like
this to bring back his image, espe-
cially after that three-hour mess

Hollywood takes this as a sign that

rate, it may be a good idea to get

"Kentucky Fried Movie"
The Zucker brothers are well-known
throughout the world as the comedic
geniuses behind such films as
"Airplane" and the "Naked Gun" series.
Not too many people are aware that
before any of those films came out, the
Zuckers made comedy history with the
"Kentucky Fried Movie
The Zuckerman talent for spoof is
aptly demonstrated in this film, a
series of sketches that spoof the com-
mon media of the early 1970's, includ-
ing disaster films, karate flicks, porno,
news shows, commercials and "how-
to" record albums. While many of the
jokes are now dated and trapped in the
era during which they were spoofed,
much of the basic humor gets through
and is still applicable today. Some of
the classic movie spoofs feature
numerous "Samuel L Bronkowitz"
films, like "That's Armageddon" and
"Catholic High School Girts in
Trouble which is chock full of gratu-
itous nudity and "high-larity Not one
media cliche gets by the writers as they
exploit and farcify things we hare
taken for granted.
Other memorable skits include the
great "How to Make Love" scene, in
which two lovers listen to a record that
tells them how to have sex in a step-
by-step manner. By the end, the two
are about to perform the sex act, but
the male experiences premature ejacu-
lation. The record continues to say

Cat's Cradle
Far Too Jones will grace The Cat's
Cradle Friday; surely the crowd will
be pleased. North Carolina is infa-
mous for producing groups that
write sappy, yet catchy, tunes that
could easily find a spot on the forth-
coming Edwin McCain or Matchbox
20 record. Perhaps the band should
change ils name to Far Too Typical.
There is talent to be spent and it is
quite possible that Far Too Jones will
find success, but as for North
Carolina the influx of Fxtwin McCain
rip-off bands like these are begin-
ning to beat a dead horse.
I-ake Trout will be performing at �
Peasant's Cafe Thursday. The band's j
unique style of music blends funk :
and jazz together for a sound that :
could raise the ears of George
Clinton and Miles Davis. Hailing '�
from Baltimore Maryland, Lake )
Trout is an intricate part of an �
incredible, growing jazz scene. �
According to reviews, the band seeks �
solace in the fact that it is striving to :
do something different from every :
other band on MTV. Lake Trout will I
easily be a hit at Peasant's because of )

Man spends $16,000 on OJ.
memorabilia to burn
DENVER (AP) A Denver web site
operator and former talk-show host
says he spent $16,000 buying 0.1.
Simpson memorabilia at the Los
Angeles auction and plans to burn it
In an interview with a Los Angeles
television station Tuesday night, Bob
Enyart said he purchased the items
because "we wanted people to know
that 0.J. Simpson is a murderer
Enyart said he raised the money from
visitors to his Web site,
"V stand for our governing leaders to
acknowledge publicly that our crimi-
nal justice system is a complete fail-
ure he said. "We do not have the best
criminal justice system in the world
Among the Simpson memorabilia
Enyart successfully bid on were a
$10,000 Hall of Fame plaque and two
No. 32 jerseys.
The auction raised $430,000, a frac-
tion of the $33.5 million Simpson
owes the families of Nicole Brown
Simpson and Ronald Goldman for
their 1994 slayings.
The auction resulted from a civil
wrongful death suit in which a jury
found Simpson liable for the killings
of Ms. Simpson and Goldman.
Simpson was acquitted of murder in
an earlier criminal trial.
kidnaps kitty
EUGENE, Ore. (AP) A kidnapped kitty
was back with its owner Wednesday
after a man tried to hold it hostage for
information about his ex-girlfriend's
The cat's owner told police that
Michael Jeffrey Warren, 28, knocked
on her door and asked where his ex-
girlfriend was staying. The woman
wouldn't tell him.
Soon after, she said, Warren Called and
told her he'd taken her white cat,
Buddy, and wanted to know where his
ex was before he'd give the cat back.
The woman called police. Officer Bill
Solesbee found Buddy inside Warren's
1978 Firebird.
According to Solesbee's report, Warren
claimed the cat was part his because
his ex-girlfriend had given it to it's
present owner.
He said his ex owed him money and
that he planned to keep the cat until
she paid him.
Warren was lodged in the Lane
County Jail on a charge of first-degree
theft. Bail was set at $30,000.
Doctor's relatives
MOSCOW (AP) A Kazak doctor has
been charged with murder after
police found the mummified bodies
of four of the woman's relatives in her
apartment, a news report said Friday.
The bodies were discovered after a
police officer on a routine inspection
noticed a strange smell and went to
examine the apartment, the ITAR-
Tass news agency reported.
One of the mummies was lying in a
cardboard box, and three more were
seated against a wall, the report said.
The owner of the apartment, a doctor
by training whose name was not pro-
vided, told police that she didn't have
the money to bury her mother and
three sisters who died of an unspeci-
fied disease last summer, so instead
she used her medical knowledge to
mummify the bodies.
Doctors in Kazakstan, a former Soviet
republic in Central Asia, are usually
state employees and get meager
But police have accused the woman of
murder, and plan to conduct a foren-
sic examination to determine the
cause of death, the report said.

heroDis is not a sha-wade But then
again, what would you expect from
such character with names like Hung
Well, Long Wang and Enormous
Genitals? This part of the film kind of
drags on for a while, but when it's
funny, it doesn't let up.
It's a crying shame to know mat the
Zucker brothers don't do these kinds
of films anymore. David, the oldest,
even branched out into the serious
drama genre with 1988's "Ghost But

Most people don't realize it, but all of
Leslie Nielson's movies of late ("Spy
Hard" and "Wrongfully Accused")
have been just rip-offe of the Zucker
brothers'style. They had nothing to
do with those movies, thus the
movies have been garbage.
