Dooley steps down as coach after lackluster season
Declining attendance at
games, poor record reasons
Pktkr Dawvot
assist avi vkw s i 1)1 i ok
Joe Dooley, who guided the East Carolina
men's basketball program for the past four
seasons stepped down as head coach
Thursday after coming off a lackluster sea-
son.
Dooley, one of the country's youngest
Division I head coaches, helped his squad
in finishing 13-14 overall with a 7-9 mark in
the Colonial Athletic Association. Dooley
has led the pirates to a 57-52 overall record
in the conference with a 1-4 record in tour-
nament games. This, combined with a
downward spiral of attendance at games,
were among the main reasons for what is
being called a mutual decision despite the
fact that Dooley had one year left on his
contract.
Mike Hamrick, director of Athletics, said
since 1995 COU's attendance for home
games has decreased by nearly 2,0)0 peo-
ple per game.
A solemn Dooley had little to say about
his resignation but feels great support from
fans and athletes from within the universi-
"I have appreciated the opportunity at
East Carolina and am grateful to the many
individuals who have supported me and our
basketball program Dooley said. "I am
proud of the progress our program has made
in the past four years and wish the Pirates
success in the future
Junior guard Garret Blackwelder was
surprised by the announcement
"We weren't expecting this�we were
focused on the game. We were looking
forward to next year regardless if coach
Dooley was here or not Blackwelder said.
According to I lamrick, he and Dooley
agreed that this was the time for Dooley to
step down.
"I want to thank Joe Dooley for his
contributions to our basketball pro-
gram and the athletic department
Hamrick said . "I firmly believe we
can have an extremely successful bas-
ketball program at East Carolina
University. We will work diligently in
our search to attract a successful coach
to lead the Pirate basketball pro-
gram
Hamrick said that he, Pirate Club
members, a basketball team member,
athletics department members, and
faculty would be in charge of search-

Minors may

STAFF WRITER
The lieutenant governor's task
force on DWI laws recently pro-
posed a new bill that would close
the loophole on underage drinking,
focus on opened containers in
vehicles and target repeat offend-
ers.
A person who is 18 and younger
given citation for purchasing or
possessing alcohol is charged with a
misdemeanor. I Iowcver, those
receiving alcohol citations that are
19 or 20 is only charged with an
infraction punishable by a $25 fine.
The proposal recommends any-
one under the age of 21 be charged
with Class I misdemeanor, which
usually includes a court appearance

"There is nothing more tragic
than to see a young person's life
cut short due to a drunk driving
crash It. Governor Dennis
Wicker said. "Unfortunately,
drunk drivers arc killing and injur-
ing too many of our citizens every
year, including young people.
We must continue the battle to
make our roads safe for everyone. I
strongly believe the task force rec-
ommendations are another impor-
tant step in reducing drunk driving
and enhancing safety on our road-
ways

8-12.
More than 20 departments will
have tables to educate students
about majors and career opportuni-

usual major and minor fair held in
Mendenhall, and invites students
to personally visit department loca-
tions and meet faculty members.
"Our hope is that the undecided
person will go by and get some
information, and the person who is
already in the major might also
learn more about career opportuni-

director of Career Services.
The forum is designed to offer
students the chance to meet facul-

Number of wrecks on campus remains steady over time
More can than parking
spaces adds to congestion
P K T E R Da W V O T
ASSIS I AN I SF.WS EDITOR
Over the course of the year, students,
faculty and police alike have seen many
accidents involving vehicles on cam-
pus.
With more cars on campus than
parking spaces, along with the increas-
ing impatience of drivers everywhere,
conditions seem likely that the number
of wrecks will only continue to rise.
With almost 10,000 students bring-
ing vehicles to campus this year, many
have witnessed the congestion that has
caused many unfortunate accidents to
occur in and around ECU. Accidents
have unfortunately not only involved
vehicles but also pedestrians and bicy-
clists.
Officer Johnson, a dispatcher for the
ECU Police Department, said that this
year ECU has had 81 wrecks for the 98-
99 school year.
"In only one of these accidents was
someone seriously injured and taken to
the hospital Johnson said. "Most of
these wrecks are just small fender ben-
ders
Johnny Eastwood, external operations
manager for ECU Parking and Traffic
Services, said that while ECU only has
around 7,980 parking spaces on east cam-
pus he does not feel there are too many
vehicles.
"Get people to follow rules and regu-
lations and accidents would be relatively
far between Eastwood said.
Eastwood suggested one tip to help
students and faculty avoid problems
which may occur once they have been
involved in a traffic accident. Eastwood
said that the victim should bring in their
parking permit if the car has been totaled;
and Parking and Traffic Services would
transfer the sticker to the victim's new
vehicle for a $1 service fee.
Eastwood believes the numbers of
wrecks has stayed about the same over
the years with little increase or decline.
ECU freshman Drew Yates was one
passenger involved in an accident this
year.
"The wreck wasn't very serious and
no one was hurt Yates said. "It's just
frustrating trying to get around campus
with so many people stepping out in front
of cars, and many other cars slamming on
breaks at unexpected times
Two weeks ago, a wreck behind the Jenkins Art Building caused serious
damage to an automobile and sent one student to the hospital.

Dooley
continued from page t
ing for a replacement to fill
Dooley's shoes.
At this moment, however, no
one has been announced as a candi-
date for the vacancy.
Hamrick said that he plans to
keep the candidates for the job
confidential in hopes of maintain-
ing the integrity of the search for
the perspective candidates. With
the loss of Dooley, Hamrick hopes
to find a coach with a more up-
tempo style of basketball, which
could bring a more competitive
atmosphere to the team.
"I've always believed in up
tempo basketball and I think that
you have to play up-tempo basket-
ball to attract fans, and to attract the
kind of players you want Hamrick
said. "I'm also looking forward to
taking our program to another level;
to a level that we have not been to
before. We're in the conference
that we should compete at the top
in and I think we can
At this point Dooley, who began
his career with ECU in 1991, is the
only member of the coaching staff
who has been let go. Some assis-
tants will have contracts running
out later on and may have the
option to resign with the team.
ECU plans to honor their contract
with Dooley by opting to buy out
the remaining year of his contract in
which he would have received a
base salary of $80,150. Dooley left

wife, Tanya, along with a short

explanation of his years as coach at

"Four years ago, I promised to
do this job with the three C's: con-

caring. I think that was accom-
plished. I'm very proud of the run
we've had. We've won more bas-
ketball games than any coaching
staff since the 1940's Dooley said.
"Eight years ago I walked into here

his department will hold an infor-

Officials say it will not only
affect them at that time, but it will
affect their future careers.
"Changing the charge of can
infraction to a misdemeanor will
have a big negative effect on col-
lege students in their job search
said Capt. Frank Knight of the
ECU Police Department
In addition to affecting underage
drinkers, the new laws will also tar-
get repeated offenders. The gov-
ernment is looking at lowering the
threshold for DWI convictions.
Under the pro-
posal, any person
who has been con-
victed of a DWI,
would not be
allowed to drive
with a blood alco-
hol level of more
than 0.04 percent,
instead of the
legal amount of
0.08 percent for a
seven years.
Government
officials stated that another thing
recommended by the task force is
to lower the number of repeat DWI
offenders by installing an ignition
interlock device in their vehicles.
This device is a breath test that
requires the driver to have no alco-
hol in their system in order to scan
the vehicle. The interlock devices
will be required for three years fol-
lowing the restoration of driving
privileges after a four-year revoca-
tion.

29 of college students have been in a fight while

46 of student council leaders say that alcohol is their

"It is very important for students
to be able to experience works of
art firsthand said Karen Hill,
ECU freshman and art student.
Holland will donate as many
works as he can catalogue a year,
which is estimated at around a hun-
dred per year. The first of these cre-
ations will be on display by Spring
of 2000. Certain selections will be
available for public viewing in the
art building for two to three months
at a rime, however only art students
will be able to handle them.
"I think this collection is going
to be nationally significant for its
breadth and the artists that are rep-
resented said Charles
Chamberlain, area coordinator for
ceramicsECU is geographically

lection like this students have pre-
viously had to go to Washington,
D.C. to study pieces like these
Some of the major artists includ-
ed are Don Rietz, Sally Bowen
Prange, and Paul Solgner, all of
whom are celebrated ceramic
artists. There are also many artists
from the Seagrovc Pottery Area,
which has greatly influenced the
ceramic tradition of North Carolina
"These pieces document the
history of the region said Dorsey.
'They have both historic and mon-
etary value
ECU is known for its ceramics
program, which is the largest of its
kind in the Southeast. The School
of'Art has the most comprehensive
program and offers the more profes-
sional degrees in studio arts than
any other school in North Carolina.
"I think it is a wonderful testi-
mony to our program that someone
with no ties to ECU would give us
such a gift said Dorsey. "It shows
the respect that we have through-
out the state
Chamberlain also comments
that the School of An is making
plans to display the ceramics

Don't underestimate the power of a Gen-Xer. Refusing to be classified as "lazy" or
"unmotivated more ECU students than ever before are showing streaks of creative energy
and entrepreneurship. Through good management and diverse products and promotion on the
web and the street, student-run businesses are fast developing into a formidable force.
Starting a business from home always requires capital, something students are usually short
on, but this does not prevent small, relatively risk-free enterprises, such as paper-typing and
tutoring services, from cropping up all over campus.
But making big bucks requires a bigger financial risk, and students these days are more than
willing to take the plunge. One student uses the Internet to run a home business selling
Olympic merchandise and Beanie Babies. Another sells Avon and Mary Kay cosmetics. Yet
another student creates and sells jewelry.
Even in the face of today's changing market, students are finding firm footholds in
Greenville's transient community, and they are proving to the world that free enterprise is
definitely alive and well.
If you enjoy making or doing something, and you think you can make money at it, why not
give it a try? Ask your friends for ideas, and invest in something small at first. The money-
management skills you'll learn will last you through life.
You will soon find out to whom you can market a product or service. Post flyers around
campus, and use word of mouth to promote your new enterprise. But don't forget to get it
licensed if you intend to be serious about it.
j Why flip burgers for four years when you can spend that time doing something you like, and
making money at it too?
More students every day are demonstrating how easy it can be to own a business, no matter
what your interests. Don't let anyone categorize you negatively. Out generation is smart and
creative, and we have the potential to capitalize on our college careers.

Parking crooked wastes space
To Parking and Traffic
Services, please, when the lots
have been paved, put some
lines down so that we all
have parking spaces.
Ladies and gentlemen, boys and
girls, children of all ages, I may
have found the source of the gravel
parking lot problem. If you have
ever had the experience of trying to
park in these lots late at night, then
you know it is almost impossible to
find a space. Many students
complain year after year to Parking
and Traffic Services to remedy this
situation. The new plan is to pave
the gravel lots. This will
inconvenience most of us for a little
while, but eventually it will help.
When they do pave the lots I hope
they paint parking space lines,
because the problem right now is
that students do not know how to
park
For the three years I have been
parking my car in the gravel lots,
the problem has been the same.
You cannot find a parking space late
at night. The problem is not the
amount of space in the lot, but the
amount of spaces taken by each car
in the lot. I wonder where most of
these people learned to park their
cars. I like my car just like most
people do, but I don't think it
deserves a four-foot buffer zone on
each side of it. I have seen cars take
from two to three spaces in these
lots because they decide to park at
an angle. To the people are doing
this, your car is not special. If you
have a Ferrari or exotic car I might
understand, but your beat up Pinto
barely deserves a space. I am all for
equality among the vehicles that
must park in these lots, so I try to
park close enough to give others a
parking space. Unfortunately, not
everyone is as considerate. The
most annoying thing about driving
around these Iocs looking for a
space is the "almost space If there
was just an extra foot between the
cars it would almost be a space. Of
course, when you look at the car
that needs to be just a foot to the
right or left, the other side houses a
two or three foot area.
Parking and Traffic Services are
paving the gravel lots to allow more
and better parking. I have another
suggestion that would have a
similar effect. Since the parking
stickers already cost around $100,
why not require all purchasers to
take a class in parking? With all the
parking sticker money plus those
stupid tickets that everyone gets,
I'm sure financing the class would
not be hard It could be an
incoming freshman thing, maybe
done at orientation. I know a lot of
students who park in the gravel lots
really need to take a course in
parking. To Parking and Traffic
Services, please, when the lots have
been paved, put some lines down
so that we all have parking spaces.

Technological advances scary
; The fact of the matter is, I
am now realizing that my
future is happening
right now
Hoo boy! This is your one and
only Ryan-Dogg coming at you
with my weekly commentary on
scuff that either a.) concerns me b.)
makes me mad or c.) neither
concerns me nor makes me mad
but, still gets written about because
I need money.
i The big thing of the week, in
my life at lease, is a little bit of news
that came co my accencion lasc
Saturday morning. I had jusc
woken up when the phone rang. It
was my 25-year-old brother, Carter.
This big news was that he got
engaged the night before.
Though I wasn't encirely
shocked, I was a little taken aback
by this. To tell you the truth, it had
been a pretty rough' night of NOT
drinking and NOT breaking any
federal laws. (Hi Mom!) I sac there
and talked to him about it for
maybe fifteen minutes, upon which
he told me how he re-created their
entire first dateall the way down
to stopping at a convenience store
to get her a York Peppermint Patty,
for indeed she loves to feel the
sensation of skiing down the white
powder slopes of Mount Everest in
the comfort of her car seat. What,
you've never gotten chat feeling?
I hung up and sat there silent
for a few minutes and' pondered
life's many questions, like a.) Did
Adam and Eve have belly buttons?
b.) Jusc how many licks does ic
cake? and c.) Did I leave che Zippo
lit next co che curtains again? Hue
seriously, I thought about just how
old I am getting. I can still
remember getting my head scuck
between che bars of my crib ewency
years ago. I had chis weird thing for
getting my head scuck in between
barsI guess jail wouldn't be so
bad, now chac I chink about it.
The face of che matter is, I am
now realizing chac my fucure is
happening right now. I have been
with my girlfriend Randi off and on
for che pasc three years now, and ic
seems strange co chink of myself
with anyone else. But marriage is
still a long way off. I have friends
chac I graduated with chac are
married now. Ic's jusc weird. Ic
makes me wonder how ic all
happens.
Like che whole pick-up line
thing. I have never really cried a
pick up line on anyone, buc I know
some people who have. I know, I
knowthey're all scupid. Buc still,
some of them are good for a laugh.
For example, a guy I know wenc up
co a girl and said, wich all che
suaveness of a baboon chac had jusc
spontaneously burst inco flames,
"Do you have a boyfriend?" She
replied, "Yes Then he, acting
like che mayor of Coolville, said,
"Wane another one?"
Stuff like chis really amuses me,
and chac's why I am holding a
concesc. Lees call ic che "Ryan-
Dogg has money and he wanes co
buy someone a CD so lee's email
him a pickup line and if he likes ic
chen he'll buy one of us lucky
winners che CD of our choice and
chen well be happy, oh joy" concesc.
Jusc one encry per person. Send
your encry to
murdoch623@hocmail.com and
write pick-up lines in che subject
line. The judging will happen after
Spring Break Good luck and be
good, and if you can't be good chen
ac lease be good ac ic. This is che
Ryan-Dogg saying over and out,
and accept no substitutes.
really makes you think
about what we don't know.
It shows you that we really
can't take what we think we
know as gospel.
I have always been a fan of
computers, buc coday's ccchnology
scares me. Our scientist in chis
councry have finally changed
science fiction inco science face. I
am thoroughly surprised ac whac
che human mind can chink up.
I was wacching CNN che ocher
day when I saw the technology
report A group of scientists have
created a so-called "ocular
molasses" that could slow down
the speed of light from 186,000
miles-a-second to 38 mph. I know
some people don't understand che
magnitude of chis achievement so
I will ic compare ic wich something
we can all relaee co. Imagine
calking to someone three feet
away from you. Instead of your
voice instantly arriving at the
person s ear, ic cakes che sound 204
days co eravel from you co your
friend. Now chac is weird!
On che flip side, whac if we
could eravel fascer chan che speed
of lighe? I seem co recall chac chere
is a cheory by Einscein in which
cime slows down once you go
fascer chan the speed of light.
Could we possibly make time
machines? Could we be on the
verge of a new dawn in human
history, where the laws of physics
are broken on a daily basis?
Our technology is paralleled by
none ocher. NASA is sending up a
rocket co capture a chunk of a
comet and return to earth so chac
we can analyze its contents. This
idea seems almost straight from
the sci-fi works of Isaac Asimov,
but it is no longer some whac-if-
this-happened "Deep Impact"
dream flick released by
Hollywood. This is real.
These scientific achievements
scare che hell ouc of me. I never
imagined, even a couple of years
ago, chac humans would arrive ac
che day when chey began co defy
che laws of physics. Ie really makes
you chink about whac we don'c
know. Ie shows you chac we really
can'c cake whac we chink we know
as gospel.
LETTERto the Editor
;�
y-
Perhaps che mosc important piece
of legislation before che North
Carolina General Assembly chis
session is che Clean Elections Act.
Sponsored by Sen. Wib Gulley, che
Clean Elections Act will allow us co
elece representatives instead of
policicians. A representative is
someone who represents che needs
of che majority of che constituents;
a politician is someone who spends
mosc of his or her cime raising
money in order co gee elecced.
Policicians represent che large
special inceresc groups chac gee
them elecced.
Under che current campaign law,
the average citizen really doesn't
have a choice. Candidates are
predetermined by the largest
campaign donors, and, afcer
election, che bills forwarded and
voces case by senators directly
correlate with where che campaign
money came from. This is why I
say chac che Clean Elections Ace is
important: without a clean election,
based on people and issues instead
of money and special interests, we
do not have a democracy ac all,
regardless of who voces, because
che game is rigged in advance.
Do noc believe a politician who cells
you chac he is committed co putting
government back in the hands of
the people, unless his platform
includes and explicit stance on
cleaning up our election process.
Otherwise, he just wanes eo sell you
che idea of democracy while he
continues to cany ouc che business
of special interests. Clean elections
is noc a party issue; it is a citizen's
issue.

Pride is defined by websters, as
having a reasonable.or a justifaible self
respect The problem with pride, is that
sometimes.it keeps us from doing what
needs to be done. How many times have
lyou, or your friends and faimly have said
Man, I wouldn't be caught dead doing that
Don't look down on those who fix and
serve your food, or the bag boy, or the
people who clean the school's buildings
and grounds. They have pride, they just
don't let it interfere with them making a
living for their families.
Remember, pride is a good thing. It
gives you a feeling of self worth, but
pride doesn't put food on the table. Pride
doesn't pay the bills Lastly, pride doesn't
keep a roof on your head, or heat inside
It only takes two seconds to say
" Good Job or" Thank You " you'll

Students join self-employed
ranks before graduation
Ouerachievers succeed
with online businesses
Phillip Gilfus
senior writer
Imagine getting home after a gruel-
ing day of classes. There's home-
work to do, your roommate to yell
at, bills to pay and a business to run.
" This is exactly what some ECU
students, who have started their
own businesses, have to think
i about everyday.
Steve Marasco, a M.B.A. gradu-
te student, started his own elec-
inic magazine, www.gvegas.com,
;arlier this semester. It is a free
ublication anyone can subscribe
and a part of Emagine, LLC,
hich was also started by Marasco.
"Our goal is to provide an infor-
tive and entertaining electronic
lagazine that covers topics that are
iot readily available elsewhere
arasco said.
T The idea for the e-mag which
came to him during one his classes,
has spawned into an on-line publi-
tion that is currently sent to over
subscribers.
People can just subscribe for
free on the web page. Then they
I will receive a reply in their e-mail,
Jvit's important that they read that
Klarasco said.
gj G-vegas features such topics as
intermurals, the downtown scene,
community and Student Union
events, a sex forum, Greek week
and a free classifieds page. Planned
additions to the magazine include
information from campus organiza-
tions and a listing of the newest
movie rentals. The sex forum fea-
ture is a confidential question and
answer posting that is facilitated by
Mary Elesha-Adams, a family nurse
practitioner at the ECU School of
Medicine.
The electronic magazine cur-
rently holds a team of three sales
agents and four marketing agents,
all of whom are students.
"Our goal is to provide an
informative and entertaining
electronic magazine that cov-
ers topics that are not readily
available elsewhere
Steve Marasco
graduate studenl
"Setting the magazine up was
a lot harder than I expected
Marasco said.
A long range goal for Emagine is
to set up similar online magazines
at other campuses.
"After we have 4,000 or 5,000
subscribers, we will have really suc-
ceeded said Paul Vergara, fellow
M.B.A. graduate student and part-
ner.
The catapult that is expected to
expand Emagine, LLC is an online
book exchange.
"It will be a sort of an auction
place where students will be able to
sell and buy any textbook they're
looking for Vergara said.
Another student entering the
business field before graduating is
Mohamed Hussein, a junior mar-
keting major and CEO of Fladine
New Media.
"We make web sites for banks,
internet service providers and non-
profit organizations Hussein said.
Six months ago, Hussein assem-
bled a group of people to work on a
computer application to present to
First Citizens Bank. That group
soon grew into a company which is,
according to Hussein, "the fastest
growing web page designer this
side of Raleigh The company
now has eight employees and three
partners.
"Right now we're real busy and
we have n Inr of competitors said
Sam Paye, Flatline's technical
director, who also happens to be a
D.H. Conley High junior.
Right now Fladine is building a
page for the East Carolina
Vocational Center and is currently
concentrating their focus on e-com-
merce.
"We are about to work with a
company, and this will be a biggest
project to date Hussein said.
Some examples of Fladine cre-
ated sites are www.ncbank.net and
www.nowait.net.
Both Marasco and Hussein have
proven that it is possible to become
self-employed while still in school,
and remain just as successful as the
already-established competition.
Woman torching human

"We're not looking for other
suspects he said, adding there
was no indication the children wit-
nessed the killing.
There was a gunshot to
Barragan's head, but the death cer-
tificate won't specify the cause of
death until the torso is found, coro-
ner's office spokesman Jim
Wingate said.
Talbot would not disclose
where Barragan was dismembered.
Ms. Barreras Soto was allegedly
the woman who piled body parts in
a remote west county area and set
them ablaze Monday evening.
A homeless man told police the
woman parked her car near the
riverbank and carried what
appeared to be trash to a clearing
nearby, police Sgt. Bob Anderson
said.
She made several trips to her car
to retrieve items and piled them up
within 100 yards of the river and
close to the coastal bike path and
Ventura County Fairgrounds some
70 miles west of Los Angeles.
"Then she poured some kind of
liquid on this refuse and lit it on
fire Anderson said. Police were
called just before 7 p.m. to report a
fire near the roadway at the Main
Street Bridge.
The woman quickly left when
she noticed she was being watched
by a homeless man.
"To our shock and dismay the
officers discovered it was body
parts on fire the sergeant said.
"She was obviously trying to bum
up and eradicate these remains
Edward Long, a security guard
at the nearby Ventura Beach RV
Park, said a transient told him of
the fire and he went to check it out.
He radioed for someone at the
park to bring a fire extinguisher
and, after quelling the flames, he
realized they were body parts.
Graduate school: truly
beneficial in career world?
Students weigfi pros,
cons of master's degree
Brooke Potts
staff writer
As graduation draws nearer and stu-
dents begin to contemplate their
future, many will consider the pros
and cons of graduate education. For
some, it is a necessary part of their
chosen career. For others, graduate
school is a way to get a competitive
edge over other applicants.
Some students who aren't ready
to enter the "real world" right after
they graduate view continuing their
education as a great way to put off
finding a job, while those who have
been in the work force for a number
of years choose to go back to school
to distinguish themselves from
their colleagues. Whatever the rea-
sons for choosing to attend graduate
school, students generally find that
the extra time spent getting a mas-
ter's degree is well worth it.
Choosing to pursue a master's
degree involves answering several
important questions: Why go to
graduate school? Will a graduate
degree increase job opportunities?
Will it be worth the time and
money invested? What are the
chances of getting into a program?
The first thing to consider in
making the decision to attend grad-
uate school is to consider the bene-
fits of a master's degree. Does the
field you plan on entering expect
you to have an advanced degree, or
will you be able to find a job with-
out one?
"Many people choose to attend
graduate school to develop creden-
tials for career advancement said
Paul Tsechetter, dean of the ECU
Graduate School. "Advanced
licensing and advanced degrees,
which often mean an increase in
salary, encourage many to consider
the possibility of continuing their
education
The prospect of better pay is
one of the biggest motivators for
students considering the move
from undergraduate to graduate
education. For a majority of stu-
dents, the extra salary that having a
master's degree can expect to bring
in will pay for the cost of the degree
in only a few years. On average,
people holding a master's degree
will make $9,108 more per year
than those holding only a bachelor's
degree.
Mike Watkins, a first-year grad-
uate student in the department of
history, agrees.
"I chose to go to graduate school
for personal fulfillment and for
financial gain Watkins said. "Also,
it's the only way to fulfill my long-
term goal of becoming a college
professor
Along with the financial oppor-
tunities once they graduate, many
students have to consider the cost
of paying for graduate studies.
There are several ways students
can finance their education. Many
schools offer teaching or research
assistantships which require stu-
dents to work a set number of hours
each week in the department.
Other students apply for fellow-
ships, which are much more com-
petitive. Various other federal and
private loans and grants exist to
help students with expenses.
Students should also consider
whether or not they are ready to
handle the responsibility of gradu-
ate study. Grading is more difficult,
and professors expect better quality
work from their graduate students.
Many programs have very different
requirements for undergrads and
graduate students, and students
should be ready to take on more
individual responsibility. Also, plan
to narrow the focus of your studies
significantly.
Though it many sound difficult,
the years spent in graduate school
are worth the extra effort Gerhard
Kalmus, director of graduate stud-
ies in the department of biology,
offered this advice on the benefits
of graduate education.

"For a minimum investment,
you maximize your potential
Kalmus said. "You can command a ;
higher price, and the extra educa- -
don gives you a bargaining chip
most don't have
"Getting your master's degree
certainly helps pay the bilk, but it
increases your knowledge, mar-
ketability and potential for promo-
don Kalmus said.
So if you are unsure about grad-
uate school, consider the possibili-
ties that it will open up for you. Not
only will you have an edge in the
job market, but you will also have
the personal satisfaction of knowing
that you took the incentive to fur-
ther your education.

Winston-Salem girl scout
sells 10,000 boxes of cookies
Cookie sales will
sendReisterto camp
WINSTON-SALEM (AP)
Simone Reister dreamed one night
about hitting her goal of selling
10,000 boxes of Girl Scout cookies.
Her dream came true�but after
some hard work.
"I had this dream that somebody
came along and bought, like
10,000 said Simone, an 11-year-
old Girl Scout. "It would never
happen that way in reality. You
have to work for it
Simone reached her goal Friday
after selling cookies over the past
six years in Florida and then in
Winston-Salem. The 10,000th box
was sold from a table she set up in
front of Lowe's.
Simone has her sales pitch down
and can list the cookie flavors in a
flash.
But when Alec Cornelius of
Winston-Salem bought the boxes
that put Simone over her goal, he
said that any flavors would do. "My
wife works at a child-care center.
It's like a treat for them he said.
Peggie Baxter, the financial-ser-
vices director of the Tarheel Triad
Girt Scout Council, said that there's
no record of any Girt Scout in the
council selling that many boxes.
But because Simone lived in
Florida for her first two years in
cookie sales,
Baxter said, her record will
remain unofficial.
"Traditionally, the organization
does not transfer individual cookie-
sales records from one council to
another Baxter said.

'Touch of Class"school of modeling
Evans wins
convention competition

Amy Neeley celebrates with boyfriend. Tim Evans on
"Mile Model of the South" win.
PHOTO If IE� HOLT
Most people have either dreamed
of being in the modeling business
or at least envied those who are.
A few ECU students have
recently experienced the glamorous
lifestyle that goes hand-in-hand
with being in the limelight. These
experiences were made possible
through the Touch of Class School
of Modeling here in Greenville.
According to Shelby Allegood,
owner of Touch of Class, students
are trained in various areas of the
modeling industry including pro-
fessional, runway and photography
modeling as well as pageant train-
ing. There are at least two conven-
tions that are held where different
agencies from all over the world are
introduced to the models of the
school. At these conventions, mod-
els looking for potential careers in
catalog and magazine modeling or
who aspire to appear in Broadway
shows are often chosen by the
agencies to move on to a different
level of modeling if shehe has what
the agency is looking for.
Tim Evans, an ECU student
was a lucky contender at the
Models of the South Convention
held in Hilton Head, SC, winning
the overall "Male Model of the
South" Award. He was consequent-
ly given an invitation by an agency
in New York to pursue his model-
ing career with their company. For
a week, Evans will have the oppor-
tunity to explore the modeling field
more intently to verify his own
career choices.
"I would like to pursue a career
in modeling Evans said. "It is one
of my dreams

Teletubby Ttnky Winky serves as grand marshal at annual parade
BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) Tinky
Winky, the purple, purse-toting
Tcletubby attacked by the Rev.
Jerry Falwell as a homosexual role
model, has been invited to serve as
grand marshal of the annual "How
Berkeley Can You Be?" parade.
The Berkeley City Council
unanimously endorsed a proclama-
tion Tuesday night that defended
Tinky Winky. It read: "Long live
Tinky Winky and long live free-
dom from self-righteousness
Council member Kriss
Worthington also invited Falwell to
tour Telegraph Avenue, the site of
numerous civil rights protests, so
he could see the array of colors�
including purple�worn by
Berkeley residents, gay and other-
wise.
"We have lots of people, literal-
ly thousands of people who wear
purple on any given day and it
seems to have nothing to do with
their sexuality Worthington said
Thursday. "We're trying to do it in
a lightheaited way and not trying to
be too hypersensitive he said.
The committee in charge of San
Francisco's annual Gay Pride
Parade also has heard from people
nominating the triangle-topped
Tinky Winky as its grand marshal.
The Berkeley parade, held
every September, celebrates the
eccentricities of a city famous for
radical politics.
Last year's participants included
members of PETA, which normal-
ly stands for the animal rights group
People for the Ethical Treatment
of Animals. In the parade, they rep-
resented People Eatin' Them
Animals, a less politically correct
organization which sings the prais-
es of a carnivorous lifestyle and
whose marchers carried butcher
knives and revved chain saws.
Teletubbies spokesman Steve
Rice and Falwell spokeswoman
Laura Swickard both declined
comment on the parade.
Gun-toting grandma considered hero in neighborhood

, Hildegard Von Waldenburg, 79,
allegedly used a 20-gauge shotgun
last week to scare away a work crew
that was sent tbNait down trees in
this Albany suburb. v � �
To many in Nassau, the grand-
mother of eight is a hero. Residents
complain that the town has cut
down trees indiscriminately to
allow a road to be widened.
The state police, however, take
a different view. They arrested Von
Waldenburg after the incident and
charged her with menacing. If con-
victed, she could get up to one year
in jail.
"Regardless of the fact she's an
old German lady who does things
her way, she still has to live within
the constraints of the law state
Police Investigator John Ogden
said Monday.
Ogden said Von Waldenburg's
shotgun was unloaded at the time,
but if one of the workmen had a
peimit to carry a gun, somebody
could have been injured.
She was ordered to appear in
court March 10.
"A tree is not an ornament for

can't run away. You can replace
shrubs and flowers, but once a

"From year to year, as the styles
change, so does what the agency

In addition to the hard work and
self-discipline that is demanded
while modeling, you have to be
willing to invest in yourself. It will
cost money to get to the top.
"Every model should have a

the conferences play a big part in
modeling expenses. Many people
are misconceived at to what mod-

In an effort to prepare for the
remaining spring season and
upcoming fall, Roberts changed
the dynamics of the field. He
experimented with a flat-back
defense which allowed for three
central midfielders. This type of
zone formation was to allow for a
more offensive attack.
Sophomore midfielder Erin
Cann was a product of Robert's
change. Cann led the team with
two goals, both scored in the sec-
ond game, and one assist in the
first.
"The new formation helped
me get forward, and increased my

not have much time to sit and

that its top players have had a litde
extra rime to recover from their ill-

Horton stood up against the young
and energized opponents. Horton
played the majority ofthe time and
while in goal she recorded two
shutouts.
"Everyone has a positive atti-
tude, starting out the spring sea-
son Horton said. "Using the
zone formation will be a challenge
in the future when we play our
tougher teams
Taking over for Honon in the
later part of both games was fresh-
man Amanda Homer. Against the
Capitals, Homer was scored on
twice but gained her first shutout
against the Twisters.
This coming Sunday, ECU
holds their second tournament of
the spring. Teams include Barton
College, Raleigh Speed and a
NCODP team.

If the ECU can get by George
Mason, they will face the winner
of today's Richmond and UNC-
Wilmington match up.
Richmond defeated the
Pirates while the Pirates swept
UNC-W.
On the other side ofthe brack-
et is the national powerhouse and
conference tournament favorite
Old Dominion. The Monarchs
went undefeated in conference
play this season, and are every-
body's pick to win the conference
tournament again this year.

freshmen have made an immediate
impact on the team, while motivat-
ing upperclassmen to play their
very best. Frank Adams, M. Chad
Webb, Kevin Miller, Will Pope and
Chad Webb are all new freshman
additions to this already talented
Pirate squad.
'The freshman did well and
went to every tournament during
the fall Campbell said. "They
brought lots to the table we haven't
had before
The freshman crowd has the
help of leadership and experience
from Campbell and the advice he
can pass on to the younger guys.
Campbell had an impressive fall
season finishing third in the con-
ference and posting an amazing
72.3 average.
According to Williams, the
freshman came to ECU with
mature games and have been play-
ing strong from the beginning.
Both freshman qualifiers for the
Fripp Island tournament are
expected to play well and give the
'99 season a positive outlook.
"I want to start off well and trav-
el to all the tournaments Adams
said. "I want to play my best and
not post too many numbers for the
team
The Fripp Island
Intercollegiate Tournament will
choose the top four scorers after
each round and all Pirate starters
will have to post near-par rounds to
capture the tournament tide. This
event marks the beginning of the
'99 season and is the first leg of the
long road to the CAA Conference
Championship. This year's CAA
match-ups are especially even and
teams will be in close competition
all season for a shot at the confer-
ence tide.
"It's an all-out batde the rest of
the spring and it all comes down to
the CAA tournament Adams said.
"Whoever can last the longest,
" want to start off well and
travel to all the tournaments

Staff Writer
Craftsmanship and uniqueness of style were some of the
thoughts that popped into the minds of viewers when
entering the Gray Art Gallery on Thursday night After
the award ceremony in Speight Auditorium the paper
covering the doors and windows of the gallery was
ripped off like the opening of a gift to reveal this year's
undergraduate art exhibit.
The magnitude of talent and skill shown by the art
department's undergraduate students blew away specta-
tors. All areas of the department were represented from
John Hilowitz's woodwork, Lee Howard's "Side" in
bronze, to Jason Whitman's unique sculpture.
"The exhibition shows the diversity of work within the
school of art said Gill Leebrick, director of the Gray
Gallery. "Originality is encouraged in the students. There
was no evidence of any students using clones of their
professors' mode of style. Each student expressed their
personal style within their craft
The show was described as being"refreshing and excit-
ing" by Leebrick and numerous others. Fellow ECU stu-
dents and community members explored the gallery,
pausing to contemplate some of their favorites and com-
ment on the paintings and photography.
Particular interest among fellow art students was shown
to Jason Bryant for his incredible portraits of "Al" (Al

CD Review
Ryan Kennemur
Music lover awl decent cook
Sloan
Navy Blues
When you think about Canadian
bands, a few names probably come
to mind: Rush, Our Lady Peace, The
Tragically Hip and more recently the
Barenaked Ladies. It seems very
strange to this music lover that the
most famous band in the Great
White North has barely seen the light
of day bdow the border.
Sloan is a rock and roll revival quin-
tet from Nova Scotia, but the weird
thing is, they aren't cheesy at all. It's
almost inconceivable for a band
whose influences spring from such
cheddar acts as Boston, Kiss and
Thin Lizzy to play that sort of arena
rock in the 90s and still make it seem
fresh and original. Maybe it's
because they incorporate the occa-
sional twist of Ben Folds Five and the
Beatles. These influences and more
are showcased on their latest and
greatest record entitled Navy Blues.
The first song on the album, "She
Says What She Means is good fore-
shadowing for the barrage that is
about to come upon the listener for
the next 46 minutes. It opens with
fireworks exploding from the electric
guitar strings in a build-up straight
out of the cheese-rock handbook
Then, the band erupts into a fist
pumping jump-along ditty that
would feel right at home on the
swindtrackof"That70sShowr
Next comes the one-two punch of
"Cmon Cmon (We're gonna get it
started)" and "Iggy and Angus the
latter being the coolest song on the
disk ft incorporates a drum beat
that comes in and out of the music
like someone is putting a lid over top
of the set every few seconds just to
see what it would sound like. Also,
this song has a breakdown with the
snazziest guitar solo since Thin
Lizzy's "The Boys are Back in Town
Then the album takes a more sedat-
ed turn with "Sinking Ships It
starts off with an acoustic melody,
and after one sour note is plucked,
the song bursts into a very Ben Folds
five-ish piano melody that's more
than enough to show off just how
talented these guys are. By the end of
this song, however, the band is ready
to put its rock and roll boots back on
with the ultra-cool toe-tapper "Keep
on Thinking" and the multi-layered
(complete with band claps and
police sirens) "Money City Maniacs
I don't want to just describe every
song on the disk, but I would have no
trouble doing so. This is the first CD
I have ever bought that can keep my
interest from start to finish with no
slapping around. Even when the
lyrics are silly, such as when they
sing about a guy waking up with
coke fizz all over him, it's still bear-
able because the music is just that
good
I highly recommend this album for
anyone who likes "classic rawk"or
the experimental stylings of White
album era Beatles. Then go pick up
their last one, "One Chord to
Another which isn't as good but
still holds its own. Also, look for
their first live album in mid-March.
If the musk business were run by
me, I'd make this disk the one that all
other pop albums should be mea-
sured against. It's that good. Word.

Pencil time in for "Office Space"
Ryan Kennemur
Movie Person
OjjktSpace
2 and a half out of 4 Ifyans
Mike Judge has been a hot ticket in
Hollywood lately on big and small
screens, what with his prime-time
hit"Kingofthe Hill" and the "Beavis
and Butthead" movie. In fact, the
last thing you'd expect him to do
right now would be a live action
movie about office workers. Well
he did And ifs not half bad. More
likeathirdbad But lets not dwell on
that right now; we can talk about
Jennifer Aniston at the end.
The film deals with Peter Gibbons
(Ron Livingston), a white-collar type
of guy that goes to work every day,
sits in a cubicle prison and plays
"Tetris" when no one's looking. This
comprises about 50 percent of his
time. The other half is composed of
iteM
enduring the same criticism from
eight different supervisors, as if one
wasn't more than enough. His girl-
friend is cheating on him and the
walls of his apartment are so thin
that the guy next door can tell him
that a breast exam is on television
without even getting off the couch.
In short, Peter's life sucks. So, his
girlfriend takes him to an occupa-
tional hypno- therapist who puts him
into a trance of total relaxation and
has a heart attack before he gets to
bring him back to reality. And so,
Peter is a new man. He doesn't go to
work for a couple days, and when he
does, he finds that the firm he has
been working for has hired consul-
tants to downsize the company,
meaning that his and his co-worker's
jobs are in danger.
He goes to meet with the consul-
tants, and his relaxation continues to
push him into saying and doing
whatever he wants. He basically tells
them the truth, which is that he has
no motivation to be a good worker.
They, in turn, decide to fire his co-
workers and give him a promotion.
(Remember, he has just skipped out
on work for three days, and now they
are rewarding him for it)!
Peter's co-workers have problems of

of
Russian National Ballet to perform
for sold-out crowd
U. Miccah Smith
Fountainhead Editor
The Russian National Ballet's perfor-
mance oPSwan Lake" next week will
mark yet another sellout for ECU's
enormously popular S.Rudolph
Alexander Performing Arts Series.
Founded in Moscow during the
Perestroika period of the late 80s, the
company is known for its repertory
of works by Marius Petipa, choreog-
rapher of Don Quixote, Paquita, La
Bayadere, Raymonda and The
Sleeping Beauty. A company of 50
experienced dancers led by Artistic
Director Sergei Radchenko, the
Russian National Ballet is part of an
explosion of new Russian dance
companies whose creativity is paired
with a dedication to excellence.
This performance is part of the com-
pany's first North American tour.
"As a dancer, ifs very exciting to see
any professional dance come into
Greenville says Jessica Seeley, an
ECU dance major who was part of
the Student Union committee which
selected the company to perform as
part of this spring's SRAPAS series.
Tchaikovsky's "Swan Lake" is the tale
of a prince named Siegfried who
struggles to free his beloved swan
princess, Odette, from the spell of an
evil enchanter.
Anna Reznik will dance the part of
Odile, a maiden whom the prince
marries, thinking that she is his true
fore. Prince Siegfried will be danced
byAlexeiKremniev.
"Traditionally, ballet has had a very
strong hold in the Soviet Union says
Amber Cartwright, president of the
ECU Dance Association. "Swan I.ake
is also one of the best-known ballets

Although this performance is sold
out, tickets for the March 26 perfor-
mance of H.M.S. Pinafore are still
available from the central ticket
office. Call 328-4788 for details.

their own, aside from the fact that
they are losing their jobs. Thenerdy
guy with the glasses and a love for
gangsta rap has to deal with the fact
that he shares his name with a
cheesy adult contemporary singer.
You guessed it! Michael Bohon!
That's grounds for suicide in some
countries. Also, his introverted next-
cubide neighbor (played by Steven
Root, the boss on"Newsradio") is so
out of it that he doesn't know that he
was fired five years ago, namely
because of a mix up with the payroll
providing him with a weekly pay-
check.
The acting is pretty much what you'd
expect from a comedy such as this:
passable, but not great My biggest
problem with the movie was the
inclusion of Jennifer Aniston as the
love interestconscience. Actually, I
felt that this movie didn't need a love
interest at all It would have been
just fine as a movie about an office-
full of goofy characters.
She really should find a script that
showcases her talents as a decent
actress and stop going for all these
bit parts in formulaic comedies, but
I digress.
"Office Space" is enjoyable enough, it
just isn't that tell-all film that the
cubicle-dwellers of the country have
felt deserving of since the 80s. But
until that film is made, this movie
and the "Dilbert" cartoon should
suffice.

"Mallrats"gets no respect
Sn'ioft
Jay&iiltmBobcfcidioutttitgoodi

Staff Writer
Mallrats
Very few times can a director's new
movie live up to the hype that his or
her first movie generated. Such is
the case with "Mallrats the second
installment in the New Jersey Trilogy
by director Kevin Smith. The follow-
up to the much heralded "Clerks"
foils short somewhat on artistic value
but does include many humorous
angles which were not presented in
the first movie.
"Mallrats" shines on its own without
any ties to "Clerks" other than the
director and actors. Each character
is laid out perfectly, from the border-
line neurotic Brodie Bruce, played by
Jason Lee, to the role of the evil
antagonist men's wear specialist
Shannon Hamilton, played by a
young Ben Affleck in his pre-big-
budget-asteroid-movie days. What
would a Kevin Smith movie be with-
out the idiotic delinquents Silent Bob
and Jay? The duo returns in full
despicable form and actually carry
parts of the film which are less than
memorable.
Basically, "Mallrats" is the story of
two friends trying to lick their
wounds from breaking up with their
girlfriends by going to the local mall
and being, um, mallrats. Along the
way they meet up with various forms
of humans, ranging from an under-
age sex queen to a maniacal realist
femme Stale played by none other
than Shannon Doherty of "90210"
fame.
Even though the film is packed full of
some of the funniest damn scenes
ever put on the big screen (the
woman with three nipples and the
"chocolate" covered pretzel comes to
mind) the movie falls short on the
cinematic brilliance factor. Humor
can only carry a movie so much and
this fact rears its ugly noggin in a few
scenes. It is almost as if Smith was
trying to undo everything he accom-
plished in "Clerics" by remixing com-
ponents and shuffling actors in
"Mallrats
Maybe I was so spoiled by "Clerks

Friday March 5
The Breakfast Club: this retro-riot
returns to The Attic once again with
a nostalgic arsenal of hit eighties
coversongs. They are no strangers
to The Attic in that they usually visit
once every two months.
What to expect A group of guys
decked in BO'S garb singing the
songs you used to hear in the car
with your parents on the way to K-
Mart (Le. "Who's Gonna Drive you
Home Tonight?"). Get to the show
early because The Breakfast Club
usually packs the house and parties
"till closing time.

ODDITIES
GHOST HUNTERS
INVESTIGATE INN
KINTNERSVILLE,Pa.AP) Andy
tells me he teaches history at a nearby
college, and if his colleagues in the
history department find out what he
does in his spare time, well, things
could get dicey. So that's why he won't
tell me his last name.
Bob R. won't tell me his last name,
either. He doesn't teach at a college,
but he still has a professional life and
would rather keep what he's doing a
secret.
And then I meet Superman. I know
he is Superman because he is wearing
a T-shirt with the big Superman
emblem on the front He also has
Superman's emblem tattooed to his
left arm, and he wears a baseball cap
that says " Man of Steel" above the
oill. Finally, when I ask Superman
where he lives, he tells me the Fortress
of Solitude.
I met Andy, Bob R Superman and
about a half-dozen other members of
the Philadelphia Ghost Hunters
Alliance recently, when I spent a few
hours with them at Bucksville House,
a bed-and-breakfast in Kintnersville.
Bucksville House has been the scene
of supposed paranormal activity for
years. Last year, I wrote some columns
about the place when I participated in
a seance there.
Word about Bucksville House eventu-
ally reached members of the
Philadelphia Ghost Hunters Alliance,
which asked the inn's owners, Barbara
and Joe Szollosi, whether they could
conduct an investigation at the inn.
The SzoUosis agreed and then they
called me because they know how
interested I am in the weird things
that go on at Bucksville House.
They know I'm also interested in the
Guests at Bucksville House have com-
plained for years about hearing voices
in the nxms; about finding their lug-
gage clumped on the floon about los-
ing articles of clothing, particularly
shoes; and about feeling electric
shocks in the beds. The SzoUosis
remain skeptical, albeit intrigued by
the notion that their house is haunted.
There is some hard evidence. The
SzoUosis have photos showing strange
bolts of light in some of the guest
rooms. One photo of a fireplace con-
tains the outline of a man's face if you
look closely at the fire, that is, and
know you are looking for a man's face.
Nevertheless, from the stories told
over the years by the guests, the
SzoUosis believe they could be dealing
with three ghosts: a tall man in a black
hat, a woman in a white dress and a
mischievous little boy.
The home was built in 1795 by Capt.
Nicholas Buck, who raised a militia
and fought in the Revolutionary War.
Over the years, it served as a wheel-
wright shop and then as a tavern.
Sarah Buck, a daughter of CapL Buck,
is believed to have died in the home in
childbirth. The woman in the white
dress?
Gerew and the others have gathered in
the dining room of Bucksville House.
Superman puts on one of those vinyi-
and- Velcro utility belts favored by pro-
fessional photographers and TV cam-
eramen. It is packed with all sorts of
indescribable electronic gizmos. He
tells me Batman lent him the belt.
The others are traveling a bit lighter.
Andy and Bob R. are wielding digital
cameras, which record pictures on
floppy disks rather than film. The
advantage here is they can see the
images right away, instead of having to
take their film to the supermarket.
Other members have conventional
cameras, as well as detectors that
search for electromagnetic fields,
instruments for taking thermal read-
ings from a distance (for finding cold
spots in a room, I'm told), audio tape
recorders and infrared night vision
scopes.
Everybody splits up. I find myself tag-
ging along after Bob R.
He tells me digital cameras are a god-
send for ghost hunters because they
are very good at capturing orbs
An orb is the most common form of
paranormal evidence. It is simply a
hazy ball of light that appears on a
photograph. Many suspected orbs are
eventually found to be reflections
from flash photography or specks of
dust on the lenses. Bob R. says he has
taken some 1,500 photographs in
haunted houses over the years, and
has produced only 35 images of gen-
uine orbs.
There are a lot of different theories
about orbs he explains They may
be reflected light from a spirit entity,
or they may be a ghost manipulating
the environment in a solid or semi-
solid condition.
I write all that down.
that, no matter how hard I hoped,
"Mallrats" would never measure up.
Comparisons aside, it is a damn
funny film. The conversations
between characters Brodie and T.S.
Quint about nothing had me clutch-
ing my stomach in pain after laugh-
ing so hard. Hearing Brodie ask
comic book legend Stan Lee about
the size of "The Thing'sgenitals sent
me into a surreal state of girlish
laughter. Smith has the uncanny
ability to make these scenes come
off astoundi ngly realistically without
losing the humor. It is almost as if
he recorded conversations between
himself and his friends and just
made a movie around it
As a type of "middle child
"Mallratsis often forgotten between
the likes of "Clerks" and "Chasing
Amyf It just doesn't have the "holy
sh@" aspect of the other films.
Most of the scenes are absolutely
hilarious but the really bad parts
(i.e. the flea market visit) take away
from the parts that shine. All said
and done, "Mallrats" is one funny
movie that a bunch of friends can
get together and watch while not
having to worry about thinking
much in the process. Ifyouwanta
movie from the trilogy to sit down
and watch alone and you want to be
mentally challenged, watch "Clerks
If notMallrats"is right up your
alky.

It
ARIES:
(March 21-April 20)
You are in a very practical frame of
mind and unusually sharp in all
your money matters. In your can-
do-anything mood, no matter how
busy, you will be more than able to
take care of everything.
TAURUS:
(April 21-May 21)
Family is highlighted for now. Heart-
to-heart talks with children will
prove advantageous. The financial
goals you've had in mind are going
to be realized in the very near
future.
GEMINI:
(May 22-June 21)
Any problems in family or home life
will finally be resolved. Keep your
cool in the workplace, co-workers
may be overly sensitive. There are
changes, from a distance, which will
stir things up at work for the next
few weeks.
CANCER:
(June 22-July 23)
You'll start the
week in a dream world of your own.
It may be best to take time alone
and treat yourself better. A short trip
may be the ticket to fun and adven-
ture. Work runs smoothly for a
change, but there are tensions in the
home.
LEO:
(July 24-August 23)
Listen to a friend's advice regarding
financial planning. Once you have
your plan in order, take time to dis-
cuss it with your beneficiary. Others
may accuse you of living with unre-
alistic expectations -don't let it
bother you, your best ideas come to
you this way.
VIRGO:
(August 24 - September 23)
This week will bring passion and
intimacy with your love. Business
and household projects are favored,
and you'll be surprised at how much
you get done. There may be a bonus
for your recent efforts.
LIBRA:
(September 24 - October 23)
The more you depend on your inner
reserves, the stronger you are. Your
actions inspire family members to
strive for their best. There are some
self doubts you have been wrestling
with which only you can work
through.
SCORPIO:
(October 24 - November 22)
Spend time whh close friends and
have some fun. Both your friend-
ships and love relationships are very
fulfilling. Keep your cool; someone is
trying to undermine your position
with flattery or outright bribery.
SAGITTARIUS:
(November 23 - December 21)
It's a pretty effortless and pleasur-
able week. You have the power to
make changes for the better.
Personal achievements and romance
will be highlighted for the next few
months.
CAPRICORN:
(December 22 - January 20)
This week will start on a very upbeat
note. Wherever you are, you are sur-
rounded by luck and friendship.
Unexpected money is
most likely to come your way. Your
work and family responsibilities are
heavy, you have people relying on
you from all sides, take things one at
a time.
AQUARIUS:
(January 21 - February 19)
There are many things that need
your attention right now. Try to pri-
oritize, and do the most important
things first. Verbal clashes are
unavoidable-both your kids and
co-workers will challenge your
authority.
PISCES:
(February 20-March 20)
Spend some time with your mate
and family. You are both assertive
and charming. It feels good to suc-
ceed at work and know your family's
happy too. The week will be full of
heavy mental stimulation and many
challenges.
IF THIS WEEK IS YOUR BIRTH-
DAY: You tend to be overly optimistic
or overly negative. Start seeing your
partners and cohorts as they really
are, not only as you want to see
them. Both friends and close associ-
1
ates are going to be particularly
important to you for the next several
months.
