Parking and Traffic Services, along
with Materials Management have
begun the process of selecting a
consulting firm to discuss the future
of parking at ECU.
Dave Santa Ana, director of
Parking and Traffic Services;
Layton Getsinger, associate vice
chancellor for administration and
finance; Bruce Flye, director of
Facilities Planning and other mem-
bers of the Parking and Traffic
Policy Committee held a confer-
ence on Monday with consultants
representing four firms. The com-
mittee explained the major prob-
lems with current campus parking
and addressed specific desires for
the future so that the consulting
firms can include solutions in their
The consultants' request for
proposals must address many
issues wih ECU parking including
medical school parking, fee struc-
ture, charging the Athletic
Department for use of the lots dur-
ing athletic events, private parking,
dealing with the projected increase
in enrollment and locating areas for
new lots. The committee is espe-
cially interested in utilizing current
"How do wc live with what we
currently have?" Getsinger said.
There are currently two lots that
are not utilized because they are
inconvenient, he said.
The committee wants to find
ways to encourage people's use of
other means of transportation to
campus because parking is current-
ly too congested.
"We have to find out where it is
to decrease the amount of cars cur-
rently on campus Getsinger said.
He believes this can be done by
improving the transit system. He
also mentioned perimeter-based
fees whereas the farther away from
campus you park, the less your
parking sticker costs.
The Parking Policy Committee
said they want to help the entire
campus by receiving input from
everyone. The committee, which
will work as a contact for the select-
ed consultant, is composed of staff,
faculty and students. In addition,
the committee wants to survey the

that each person can only vote
once. Then, voters mark their
selections on a ballot sheet and turn
it in to the attendant.

similar turnout next Wednesday.

The companionship and warmth a pet can bring into a person's life can be immeasurable. For
many college students, who are a long way from home, the idea of owning a pet is alluring.
Of course, there are many responsible pet owners. Unfortunately, many others are not at a place
in their lives where they are best prepared to care for a pet. The truth is that most student
lifestyles are not conducive to pet ownership.
As a result, area animal shelters are filled with pets who have been left homeless because of the
irresponsibility or circumstances often of college students.
The life of a college student can be hectic. Living arrangements change year to year and semes-
ter to semester. This uncertain environment is not stable and not always appropriate for pets.
You may get a new roommate who doesn't like pets. You may move somewhere that doesn't
allow pets. You may transfer or get expelled ftom school. Too many variables can make owning a
pet detrimental to the life of the animal.
Even if living arrangements are stable, what happens when pet owners leave for breaks dur-
ing the school year?
Taking care of a pet is a responsibility that is often underestimated by students. Students often
live in cramped apartments with far too little room for animals to run. Many of us barely have
enough money to feed ourselves, much less a pet.
If a student chooses to own a pet, serious thought must be put into the decision. With all of the
strain put on your time by studies and social activities, are you really going to want to take time
to care for a pet?
Planning must be done for the safety of the pet. Is there someone who can take care of the pet
when you go home? If for some reason you cannot keep your pet anymore, is there somebody
else who you know can and will take care of it?
If you do not have easy answers to these questions, a pet might noi be a wise choice.
If a student chooses to own a pet, and is later unable to care for it, the student loses a pet and
the pet could possibly lose its life. Animal shelters can only hold pets for a limited period of time
before the animals are destroyed.
The penalties for irresponsible pet ownership are vastly greater for the animals. If students
want pets there is very little anyone can do to stop them from obtaining one. However, pet own-
ership should be a choice that is well deliberated. Mistreating animals is rarely anyone's intention,
but is often the result of poor planning.

I do have an opinion and it is
this: I really don't know. I could sit
and rant about the multitude of
problems that I encounter on cam-
pus each day such as the fact that
twenty-five cents counts for 30
minutes in the half-hour parking
meter and the same quarter would
only count as twenty minutes in the

but I love it!
Communism is great, isn't it? I
sit on my knees and admire my life-

Lcnnin on a daily basis after that I
have to go to class and stuff. But
seriously, dude, these guys were
dope! I mean, think about all that is
wrong with capitalism. Business are
running each other bankrupt and
all, and just think of all the choices
we get to make on our own�non-
If America was run by
Communists (though some may
argue that is already is), life would
be like living on a college campus,
and how great would that be?
Everone could cat at the same great
campus restaurants, and we would
all make the same wages as college
studentswhich is a little less than
nil so we are well on our way.
Here is a common Capitalist
doctrine: a man goes into a pawn
shop and purchases a still-sealed
playstation game for twenty dollars
(there would be no playstations in
my perfect communist world, mind
yonplaystations bad!) and then
proceeds to drive to the local Wal-
Mart and return it for thirty crisp
dollars he can use to buy computer
games or hookersnow who would
want to do that? This would never
have happened had Mr. Marx's
ideals been carried out.
If Communism were King, there
would be no thought of getting 12
free CDs from BMG that you don't
want and selling them to CD Alley
for better music.oh no. Don't get
any ideas either because once Y2K
rolls around andwe all live in straw
huts again, there will not be any fun
capitalist activities to engage in�
Besides, there are only two
things that matter in life anyway-
communism and Hank Williams Sr.

Even little ol' Greenville has
communist unertories that please

For those of you who never lis-

probably don't recognize the above
snippet from DJ Jazzy Jeff and the

wonder if they're related somehow.
Capitalism is the foundation
upon which this great nation of ours
(the people of Canton, China) was
built on. To many people, it has
turned into a way of making money
without actually doing any work.
An example of this is going into a
pawn shop and finding something
that purchasing something that
looks new, then taking it to Wal-
Mart and getting the full retail price
for it in cash. How do I feel about
this? In a wordword. This is a
great way to make money, second
only to prostitution. And seeing as
how I was a victim of the Freshman
Forty, that one's out.
Big corporations like Wal-Mart,
K-Mart and Roses are thieves in a
thieves market.These guys (not
the people of Canton, China) are
taking us for every penny that we
earn, and I sec nothing wrong with
the occasional Savings and Loan
But I have to respect these cor-
porations, even if it's only because
they have nifty logos. But also
because of what they do for the lit-
tle mom and pop places that spring
up in the area. You know, the ones
that open and close in the same
week because they can't compete
with the surrounding chains. Man,
that's awesome. Darwin's Natural
Selection theory really applies here.
Survival of the fittest, PTA Pizza!

idea is ordering a bunch of cd's from;
BMG and then turning around and;
selling them at a used CD store
Isn't that genius? And also, getting
compromised credit card numbers;
off the internet and using them for
900 numbers (and 10-10 numbers).
We're not stealing so much as "tak-
ing back" what they (the people of
Canton, China) stole from us. Let's
sec you try to get anything like that
done through the ideal of
Communism. Marx was a Nazi and
Frederich Engels wasn't even

listen to what those weird French
people have to say?

will bring. Not only do you have to

spouse's as well.

Another couple, Don and

a particularly unique situation.
Don is a graduate student, while

The only fashion-deviant spot- j
ted on this particular day was a
man dressed up in Johnny Cash-

Of course this is college, not a
fashion show. Most students go for
a utilitarian look, and do not waste
their time worrying about chic-
ness. Just remember to put away
the white shoes after Labor Day.

1,367 fans packed the bleachers and even more
lined the outfield fence and filled the outfield
bleachers of I larrington Field last Tuesday night
to see the No. 24 in the nation ECU baseball
team (2S-5) defeat No. 23 Wake Forest (19-7).
For those who missed out it was yet another
Pirate baseball nail-biting victory as
ECU took the 11-8 win.
In the bottom of the eighth inning
with the score tied and 1,300 fans won-

The meet consisted of about 117

a good showing. Michelle Clayton, in
particular, had a commendable per-

NCAA freshman eligability requirements overturned in court
Colleges must now
set their own guidlines
STM-F U HI'I'KR
The court case of'two African-
American high school student-ath-
letes ultimately led to the current
controversy over Proposition 16.
Leatrice Shaw and Tae Kwan
were seniors at Simon Grantz High
School in Philadelphia in 1996.
Shaw and Kwan had grade-point
averages of 3.5 and 2.8 respectively
and finished in the top ten percent
of their class, but each failed to
achieve the minimum SAT score.
According to Proposition 16, these
two should have been labeled as
"partial qualifiers" and sent on to
college to play at the school of
choice. Yet somehow they were
never officially cleared through the
Proposition 16 says that in order
to play as a freshman and receive
scholarship, a prospective athlete
must at least score an 820 on the
SAT along with a 2.5 grade-point
average, or a 1010 SAT score and a
2.0 grade-point average. If only one
part is met, like in the case of Shaw
and Kwan, then they are deemed
"partial qualifiers" and can practice
with their collegiate team and
receive scholarship, but lose one
year of eligibility. If a student-ath-
lete completes both parts of the
requirements then they are allowed
to start playing and have no restric-
tions or penalties held against them.
For years many black coaches
and professors in addition to rural
whites, have held their beliefs that
standardized test scores are "radi-
cally and culturally discriminatory"
which has led to the attack against
Proposition 16. They contend that
standardized test scores have noth-
ing to do with a student-athlete's
ability to complete a college course,
and therefore should not inhibit the
student-athlete from going to col-
District Judge Ronald
Buckwalter agreed and on March 8
he ruled that the NCAA can not use
the minimal standardized test score
to eliminate student-athletes from
Division I eligibility because their
practice is unfair to black students.
Buckwalter denied the NCAA's
request for a stay, making
Proposition 16 officially overturned.
This decision has left open holes
for 302 Division I coaches and their
now non-existing guidelines for
recruiting. Our own ECU coaches
now struggle to decide as an institu-
tion, what standards they want to
set for prospective student-athletes.
"NCAA standards define who
you can recruit. This decision has
now affected all sports across the
board said Neil Roberts, head
coach of women's soccer. "Three
months ago during the signing
process many students weren't eli-
gible for Division I sports and now
There are many concerns to this
more open style of recruiting. The
pool of potential student-athletes is
now greatly enhanced. It has given
schools more of an opportunity to
increase their level of competitive-
ness but may in the future result in
a decrease in the percentage of stu-
dent-athletes who graduate.
"If you are trying to build a good
program and bring in more money
to the school, then yes it would be
better said Marvin Miteell, assis-
tant athletic director for student
development. "But if it is strictly for
athletics and the student conies just
for sports, then no it's not a good
idea because they aren't going to
focus on graduation which is our

WFU made another rally later in
the sixth inning scoring three runs

ECU lost a non-conference dual
match on Monday to visiting West
After losing the in doubles, the
Pirates dropped five out of six sin-
gles matches to give the
Mountaineers the 6-1 victory.
"I felt we played well today but
West Virginia played better on the
critical points said Tom Morris,
ECU head coach.
Freshman Michael Huez, who
is 10-4 on the season, was the only
Pirate who was victorious in the
singles matches. He beat out West
Virginia's Irakli Tatishvili by a score
of 6-3, 6-2.
Three of the singles losses came
in grueling three set matches.
Oliver Thalen, who played at No. 2
for the Pirates, lost to James Kent
3-6, 6-4, 6-4. Dustin Hall also lost
in three, losing 6-7, 64,
6-0 to Guillame Raux.
"I was pretty tired after two. I
was worn out and (Raux) really
stepped up in the third Hall said.
Another three set battle came at
the No. 6 spot where Pirate fresh-
man Leshaun Jenkins was beaten
6-0, 2-6,6-2 by James Simpson.
Senior Kenny Kirby's ankle
injury may explain some of the
hardships that the Pirates faced.
"I think things would have been
different if we had Kenny in the
lineup Morris said.
Kirby is a high seed for the
Pirates and his injury forces all
other players to bump up a seed
and play a higher seed than usual.
"Injuries have hurt us all year.
It's very competitive out there and
when you have to move up a seed,
you can tell. It's pretty hard
Kirby is not expected to return
until April 8th when the Pirates
face conference foe George Mason.

that it can only be described as "breathtaking

Century by showing a moving picture-show to a select crowd of
ticketed students, teachers and journalists.
"Ice Cream the first picture-show ever to be shown on campus,
is a short film about a small girl licking an ice-cream cone. Since
the film is silent, organist Ethel B. Simmonds, who usually plays
for the weekly Hendrix Theater variety show, added a comical
musical score to the ten-minute film, much to the audience's

Like a bat out of Hell's smoky
depths, radical metal ensemble
Wulfgang comes screaming out of
Concord, North tarolina with a
release pumped to the roof with

Love AM Easy is bursting with
melancholy ballads and heavy riffs,
and the talent these guys possess
can't be denied.
I'm scratching my head, wondering
why this musically superior group
hasn't garnered a major recording
deal. With such songs as"Rock My

in the Saddle Wulfgang boldly
daims the right to be chased by
hordes of t-shirt clad women in tight
jeans, but they're still playing the
small-time label game.
These lyrics are incredible. Jimmy

cuts through my heart like a knife
with his primal "Hoooooo, whoa,

to the lyrics of "The Indian Song

get the respect they deserve, since
this giourd-breaking album arrived

Dont get me wrong; there's nothing
hackneyed about their sound. No
way do they sound like Whitcsnake
or Def Leppaid Ifs just that today's
market is already too flooded with
big-haired, mega-talented 35-year-

Australians Steve Irwin makes
campus safety check
Ryan "Jungle Boy" Kennemur
As you may or may not know, our
campus was recently visited by an
Australian celebrity. Yes, the mighty
Steve Irwin, also known as the
Crocodile Hunter, took time out of
his busy schedule of chasing the
fiercest creatures the world has to
offer to team up with the school's
ecology department and identify the
deadly creatures living on campus. I
had the chancc.no, the blessing of
interviewing him as he toured our
campus. Here is how it went, word
Ryan Kennemur Howdy there.croc-

RK: Sure,right Arrythingelse?
CH: Not really, but there does seem
to be little something rightthere,
(he grabs something from the collar
on my shirt and quickly eats it.)
RK: What the hell was that?
CH: Nothing, mate, nothing I have
to be moving along now. My
Crocodile Sense is telling me that
someone is in danger of being eaten
somewhere down under, and I must
put a stop to it! Besides, I'm getting
hungry. Mmmm-Hmmm! Croc for
dinner, yum yum!
RK: You won't be able to make it to
Australia in time!

ing handfuls of dirt) Shows how

Well, Ed Pekumy is a thirty-some-

will help bring them back up to par.
Since America is so great and fab,
they fall in love with Ed because he
falls in love with his brother Ray's

conflict between everyone, resulting

Dog enjoys $70,000 a year
RALEIGH (AP) Once a homeless
mutt, Rowdy is living anything but a
dogs life these days in his air-condi-
tioned doghouse in north Raleigh. His
late millionaire owner's largesse pays
about $70,000 a year for his care.
Twenty miks away in Clayton, animal
shelter manager Melinda Barefoot
can't wait for the pampered 15-year-
old to finally gnaw his last chew bone.
Under Charles Caldwell's will, her
Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to
Animals shelter stands to get a share
of his estatebut not before Rowdy
rests in peace.
Meanwhile, the shelter is in dire
straits. It has $856 in the bank and
more than 150 abandoned animals
sharing cages. Dozens of animals are
put to sleep every month because
Barefoot cannot afford to keep them.
Barefoot works at the shelter seven
days a week, despite rheumatoid
arthritis and lupus.
Caldwell took Rowdy in during the
1980s. He died four years ago at age
92. Rowdy, however, still is going
strong, although he has a touch of
arthritis in his hind legs.
Rowdy lives behind the home of
Caldwell's long-time companion,
Lillian Smith, and wants for nothing,
including a daily dog-sitter visit.
"I know this is not what Mr. Caldwell
would have wanted said Barefoot,
who started the shelter from her own
back yard in 1982. She built it with
financial help from Caldwell, who also
sent the shelter $1,000 a month for
"Mr. Caldwell loved all stray dogs she
said. "He promised us we would be
taken care of
Recently the estate's attorney, David
Cockman of Morehead City, began
sending the shelter $1,000 a month
from his own legal tees and promised
to continue the payments for the next

and when space runs short, Barefoot is
the one who must euthanize shelter

Sheep make great pets
NEW YORK (AP) During his 13 years
driving a bus in the heart of New York
City, Jose Cruz said he had seen a
llama, a potbellied pig, a parrot and
plenty of dogs and cats. But Thursday
was the first time he spotted sheep.
As he drove across 42nd Street during
the morning rush hour, traffic forced
him to stop alongside the New York
Public Library, where he noticed a
well-dressed man and woman
strolling along the sidewalk with two
fuzzy white adult sheep on leashes.
"If you look to your right, you'll see a
couple walking their sheep, Cruz told
passengers through the public address
system on the bus.
Heads turned briefly, but passengers
quickly returned to their newspapers.
People on the crowded street saw the
sheep but also kept moving.

It turns out the sheep, Winnie and
