At his press conference,
Jordan commended the vol-
unteers on the effort that they
put into the tournament

"We couldn't do this with-
out the volunteers Jordan
said. "They hopefully under-
stand that they are doing a
great justice for this whole
charity event.
They've done it for 15
years. It's a tribute to the vol-

Michael Jordan returned to
Greenville on Friday for his 15th
annual Celebrity Golf Classic.
The tournament, which benefits
the Ronald McDonald Houses of
North Carolina, raised $300,000 for
the charity. It gives families a place
to stay while their children are in the
hospital. Jordan held a press confer-
ence on Saturday morning before his
round of golf to talk about the impor-
tance this event and why he is
involved.
"As you know, the Ronald
McDonald House has done great
things for people around the world
Jordan said. "We stand forth here in
North Carolina to make sure whoev-
er has problems, unfortunate prob-
lems, are taken care of at the Ronald
McDonald House. I've always felt
proud to be associated with the
Ronald McDonald House. They
have extended themselves gracious-
ly to the less fortunate families. I've
always been very proud of that

tournament has progressed from it's
inception.
"It went from a one day tourna-
ment to a three and a half day tour-
nament Freelove said. "We had no
idea it would progress into what it is
today. We started out as a real small
tournament that charged $100 to play
golf. Now we have sponsors of
$30,000 up to our biggest sponsor
Alltell. who donated $100,000
Freelove said he appreciated
Jordan's participation in this tourna-
ment
"We feel very fortunate to have
picked up Michael Freelove said.
"He had come to the tournament for
three years, and I asked him if he
would consider letting us change the
name to the Michael Jordan
Celebrity Golf Classic. He said if it'll
make more money for the charities,
I'm yours. We've had him on the
schedule for the first weekend after
the NBA finals. It's been a great rela-
tionship

Jordan, who was involved with
the tournament for three years
before it was named after him, said
that there was no probability of mov-
ing the tournament from Greenville
to his native city of Wilmington.
'The success is here Jordan
said. "I don't think anyone built this
to such a point that we'd want to
move it somewhere else. It's too
much work they've put into it to
deprive the city of Greenville the
opportunity to keep this going.
There's something about this place
that's allowed it to be successful, and
I'd like to maintain that
A host of celebrities were on hand
for the weekend to help make the
tournament a great success. Stars
such as Evander Holyfield, Matt
Lauer, Mario Lemieux, and Damon
Wayans attended the golf classic.
The weekend began with a bene-
fit concert at Wright Auditorium fea-
turing Bryan White. The celebrity
Skins game was played on Friday
morning, ending in a tie between
baseball Hall of Famer Joe Morgan
and "Days of Our Lives" star Alex
Hyde-White, each finishing with
$25,000 to be donated to the Ronald
McDonald House. Jordan and NFL
star Jerry Rice, finished with $0.
The tournament was won by the
team led by senior NBC correspon-
dent John Daly. After the second
round of golf on Sunday, the week-
end was brought to a close by an
awards banquet held at the Hilton of
Greenville.
"Today Show" host Matt Lauer
said the weekend was rewarding not
only for the children and their fami-
lies, but also for the celebrity guests
as well.

ECU and Slay residence hall were
host to Team Japan while they were
in Greenville preparing for the 1999
Special Olympics World Summer
Games.
Greenville was picked as a host
city for the games this year and Pitt
County Public Schools and
Recreation was put in charge of their
stay while they were in Greenville.
The athletes, coaches and delegates
arrived in Greenville on Tuesday,
June 22, and were in town until
Thursday, June 24. They trained
and prepared for the competition
before they left by bus for Raleigh,
the site ofthis year's summer games.
ECU was approached by Pitt
County Community Schools and
Recreation to provide room and
board for the team while they were
in town.
"We started working on this in
October said Kay Ferrell, assistant
director for administration of univer-
sity housing. "We had such a good
relationship with the Special
Olympics back in the early '90's, we
definitely wanted to participate this
time
Alice Keen, director of Pitt
County Community Schools and
Recreation, was given the responsi-
bility of making sure everything
went smoothly for the group while
they were in town. After they left for
Raleigh, Keen was happy with the
outcome of their visit
"They had a great time Keen
said. "They enjoyed all of the facili-
ties and the community has been
very supportive. We've been very
pleased
Two ECU graduate students
were involved in the planning and
organization of the stay of Team
Japan in Greenville. Akira Harata, a

Th East Carolinian
University develops plan for hurricane season
Last year's storms
worsteverrecorded
KKKRV I'VtK
STAFF ��l I KB
The International Federation of Red
Cross and Red Crescent Societies
has issued a report warning of a new
age of "super-disasters" that may
severely test the world's aid resources
in the new millennium.
According to World Disasters
Report for 1999, "Last year's natural
disasters were the most damaging on
record and a combination of man-
made environmental problems and
poverty will trigger more super-disas-
ters. "Analyses of Hurricane Mitch
and the El Nino weather phenome-
non showed compelling evidence of
a trend towards weather-triggered
super-disasters. In 1998, natural dis-
asters created more refugees than
wars and conflicts did
The Atlantic Hurricane Season
began with predictions of more fre-
quent and stronger hurricane activity.
According to the Climate Prediction
Center and National Hurricane
Center, "There is a strong likelihood
of above-average tropical storm and
hurricane activity in response to an
expected continuation of ongoing La
Nina conditions. There is also a
strong likelihood of at least 3 major
hurricanes this year According to
National Hurricane Center statistics,
September is the most dangerous
month for the Carolinas with 25 hurri-
canes striking North Carolina from
1900-1996.
Hurricane Fran struck North
Carolina in 19 causing an estimated
$3.2 billion in total damages and 32
deaths. It ranked as one of the worst
hurricanes to ever hit the Carolinas.
"Hurricane Fran was one that impact-
ed us Greenville the hardest, basi-
cally because we had not had a direct
hit in so many years and because it hit
after about a week of rain said Tom
Pohlman, environmental manager of
ECU Environmental Health and
Safety.
Memories of Hurricanes Fran
and Bonnie have provided valuable
lessons in contingency planning for
hurricanes. The ECU Environmental
Health and Safety Office cooperates
with other campus departments to
constantly update emergency action
plans based on previous disaster
events.
"In each event we go back and
reassess what we did, what we could
have done better and what might
have helped and try to implement
those changes Pohlman said.
Access to information and team-
work are part of any emergency
action plan.
"We work in teams on this and
try to get all the departments
together Pohlman said. "Our key
focus is to protect the faculty, staff
and students
The Department of
Environmental Health and Safety
is currently working with Computer
Information Systems to implement
a banner messaging system on com-
puters to immediately inform ECU
students and employees of emer-
gency events and provide up-to-
the-minute information.
University offers
summer courses to students
Opinions vary on
difficulty of classes
I.kAnnk Johnson
mrr whitish
Every summer, ECU offers two
summer sessions with more than
1,200 different classes available.
This summer, 6,059 students
attended the first summer session.
The cost of tuition for in-state
students is $78 per credit hour,
while out-of-state students pay
$381 per credit hour. Most summer
school residents are housed in
Cotton or Slay residence halls, and
they have the option to purchase
one of three different meal plans.
In comparison, the fall semester
costs $3,500 for in-state students
and $6,500 for out-of-state students.
During the fall, all residents can live
in any of the residence halls avail-
able and have the options of a nine,
14 or 19 meal plan. Last fall, 17,799
students attended ECU.
According to some professors,
summer classes are taught the same
way they teach their fall
classes.The only difference is that
they have less time to cover the
same material.
"I am putting up a lot of my class
stuff on the new on-line university
blackboard said Carmine P. Scavo,
a political science professor. He said
he is doing this in order to help his
students keep up with his fast-
paced political science classes dur-
ing the summer. Professor Scavo
does not usually do this for his stu-
dents in the fall. Other teachers
have taken the same approach in
order to help their students keep up
with their classes this summer.
Some students said they believe
that summer school is easier than
school in the fall, while others
believe it is harder. Many think it is
easier because they have less classes
to study for, which gives them more
time to concentrate on their studies.
"Summer school is easier for me
because I like to have some free
time, and also because I am only
taking a few classes, so I have plen-
ty of time to study for all of them
said sophomore josh Johnson.
Yet, some students feel different-
ly about summer school. They think
it is harder than school in the fall
because they have to learn a lot of
material in a short amount of time.
"Summer school is harder for me
because I have to cover the same
amount of material in a shorter
amount of time, said Marissa
Green, junior. " Whereas in the fall,
my classes are a little more
relaxed said Marissa Green,
junior.
"We've done an awful lot to try
and improve that warning capability
with the kiosks, web pages, and
phone messaging systems
Pohlman said.
However, no amount of planning
will work if someone decides to
ignore the warnings of imminent
danger.
"It is still up to the individual to
heed the warnings and precautions
and do their own personal planning,
we can only go so far, from then on
people have to take responsibility
for themselves" Pohlman said.
Information and resources for
disaster planning can be found on
the internet and through federal,
state and local government agen-
cies, the Red Cross, and the campus
offices such as Environmental
Health and Safety and ECU Police.

Jarvis renovation slated

STW' !� tt HI I IH
There are multiple construction pro-
jects that have begun at ECU this
the summer.
The main construction jobs for this
summer are the new sidewalks on the
Mall, the renovation of Jarvis
Residence Hall, and a new roof on the
Wright Annex.
"The renovation of Jarvis is a total
restoration to what it looked like' in
1909 when it was the first building on
this campus said Manny Amaro,
director of University Housing. "In
addition, the utilities will be upgraded
and we'll be adding a large social area
to the hall
According to Amaro, the construc-
tion will also replace the current roof
with clay tiles similar to those it had in
1909.
"The finished project will have
glass-enclosed stair towers and a
newly landscaped courtyard adjacent
to the new multipurpose room said
Carol Mimes, Facility Architect for
Facilities Planning, Design, and
Construction. "It will also be made
ADA compliant, including rooms
which are designed for disabled stu-
dents, with lower computer outlets
and closets, and an elevator
According to Himes, the cost of the
project will be $5.5 million, and it will
lie finished in February 2000.
"The new roof on the Wright
Annex will be done by the middle of
July, weather permitting Himes
said. "It is part of the project which
put new rxfs on the Fletcher Music
Building and Eller House, the
Maritime I listory building
The placement of new sidewalks
on the Mall is a joint project between
Facilities Services, Grounds and
Buildings departments, and it is coor-
dinated through the Masonry group.
"The new sidewalks tie in to the
red brick sidewalk that was part of the
Library project said R.V. Parker,
Manager of the Buildings
Department. "There will also be
brick under all of the benches, and all
the sidewalks have been raised so that
there will be no ponding of water
The Mall will also be landscaped,
and all the new paths will be com-
pletely accessible to students in
wheelchairs.
"The older sidewalks have also
been repaired and raised Parker
said. "The project maintains the
beauty of the Mall, while allowing for
greater access
The sidewalk project will be fin-
ished by the end of next week.
Family has final say in use of donors' organs
GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP)
Just because you sign a donor card
doesn't mean your organs will get
reused.
Greenville County Coroner Parks
Evans and state Sen. David
Thomas, R-Fountain Inn, say hun-
dreds of healthy hearts, bones, kid-
neys and other organs are buried
every year by family members who
don't want their loved ones cut apart
State law gives a person's next-
of-kin the final word on donating
vital organs. Evans and Thomas
want the law changed.
"You can sign a donor card at the
highway department and have a
sticker placed on your license, but
that really doesn't matter Evans
said Wednesday.
Thomas said he'll introduce leg-
islation when lawmakers come back
in January designed to give individ-
uals final say on what he calls a per-
sonal, private choice.
"If someone makes a decision to
do this, no one should be able to pre-
empt it Thomas said. "Eight years
ago, I made the decision to donate my
eyes.
All my life I've had 2020 vision,
and I cringe at the thought they would
go unused. I don't know that I've ever
discussed that widi my wife
Evans says talking with family
members is critical with the current law.
Even if a person's drivers license
shows an organ donor sticker, fami-
ly members refuse to donate at least
half, if not three-fourths of the time,
if it is something they've never dis-
cussed, Evans said.

Each year, the Michael
Jordan Celebrity Golf Classic
honors a child from one of the
four Ronald McDonald
Houses in North Carolina.
This year, the Durham
Ronald McDonald House has
selected ten-year-old Dennis
Bull as the Honorary Child.
Dennis lives with his fam-
ily in Charlottesville, Virginia.
In November of 1992, he was
diagnosed with neurobias-
toma, a tumor of the nervous
system. In 1999, his sister
Daphne, was found to be a
perfect match for his second
bone marrow transplant. A
100 evaluation was performed
on April 5th of this year, and
Dennis was found to be can-
cer free.
Dennis' parents, David
and Katrina, as well as his sis-
ter, Daphne, and brother,
Dominick, joined Dennis for
the tournament. He partici-
pated in the Dutch Boy
Painting Party on Friday.
"So far he hasn't been too
excited because he hasn't
been feeling well, but I know
he is looking forward to meet-
ing Michael Jordan said
Katrina Bull.
They finally met at the
gala dinner on Saturday night.

Meeting a celebrity is every
child's dream, and getting a
chance to paint with them is
even better.
On Friday, the Greenville
Hilton hosted a painting
party where celebrities and
children from the Children's
Hospital of University Health
Systems of Eastern Carolina,
teamed up with the a child to
paint their own special ver-
sion of the Ronald McDonald
House, known as "The House
That Love Built Each painting
is then signed by both artists,
framed and sold at the Silent
Auction. Last year, these paint-
ings raised over $6,500 at the auc-
tion. One of the North Carolina
McDonald's operators purchased
$5,000 worth of paintings to be
donated to the Ronald
McDonald Houses statewide.

weekend for the past seven years.
The company has donated over
15,000 gallons of paint and other
supplies to more than 128 Houses
nationwide.
The excitement of the chil-
dren as they met their favorite
celebrities was evident. Smiles
and laughter filled the room as
they created their very own
"masterpiece Each attending
celebrities seemed thrilled to
work with the children.
"This is my first year at the
Michael Jordan Celebrity Golf
Classic because usually I have
competition in the summer, but
luckily I had this weekend off
said Kristi Overton-Johnson,
world champion water skier.
"I love working with children.
I hold a lot of ski clinics for
them, and this is something I
wanted to be a part of

the paint party, who got a chance
to work with Matthew Laurance

This is his second year playing in
the tournament, but he plays fre-

Daly said. "Michael wants a

A Greenville native, Lee
Norris who stars in Torkelsons
and Boy Meets World, also par-
ticipated in the event.
"I'm having a great time work-
ing with the kids Norris said.
This is his fifth year attend-
ing, but only his first year play-
ing in the tournament.
"This is the only year I've
been brave enough to play with
the big boys Norris said.
Damon Wayans, (Mo' Money,
The Great White Hype) said he
does about five charity fund rais-
ing events a year, and chose to
do the tournament because it's
for a very important cause.
"I'm here for two reasons: to
show my support for the children
and to come out and play golf
Wayans said. "You get double
your pleasure
In addition to the Dutch Boy
Painting Party, there were other

There's music in my ears
"The Sound of Musk"
wins rave reviews
Michael Edwards
STAFF WRITER
I must start off by saying I don't normally
go to plays. However, after seeing this one
at the East Carolina Summer Theater
(their 13th season), I'm going to make a
drastic change in my after-hours schedule.
Perhaps it's the majesty of going to a
theatrical presentation in a building
named after a friend of mine's father or
just going to see a live performance that
has become such a family treasure, but
The "Sound of Music" is a must-see!
Plays are sometimes boring and non-
descript, but I was totally blown away!
From the opening scene through the
entire production, no one missed a beat,
not one musical note was out of place and
not one piece of scenery went up when it
was supposed to go down. I knew that
even the kid who sang off tune did it on
purpose! The only mistake I heard, and
I'm really not sure if it was a mistake; is it
Shitzel or Schnitzel?
Not everyone in it was from
Greenville, but that is all the more reason
to see it. There were a multitude of folks
from this area, many from ECU. I've not
seen a better mix of cast members. I
asked the opinion of the person sitting
next to me at the intermission.
"I'm impressed with the quality of
the actors (in this play); they're much
better than some of the other big names
they've had here said Lynn James of
Greenville as she laughed. "Have you
heard the little girl behind meshe's
singing all the songs
The play, as some of us know, is about
Georg von Trapp, a widowed retired
Naval officer and his crew of (gasp) seven
children of all ages and heights.
Postulant nun-in training, Maria Rainer,
is asked to be the governess for Capt. von
Trapp. The Trapp group has run off
many previous women because of the
continued abuse and mischief of the chil-
dren. The head Mother at the nearby
Salzburg Abbey elects Maria to fill the
spot. The monsters were always very
well behaved and disciplined when dad
was home, but absolute terrors when he
was away � exactly like real life.
This time, things are different. Maria
charms the children with music and love,
and accidentally charms Dad as well.
Unfortunately, Dad proposed to a witch
named F.lso Schraedcr, expertly played
by Jeanne Jones. She was like one of
those women you love to hate. She is a

Governor Ventura donates name and likeness
Charities receiveprofits
from royalties
RICHFIELD, Minn. (AP) -Ventura
for Minnesota, Inc the nonprofit
that licenses the use of Gov. Jesse
Ventura's name or likeness, awarded
$5,000 each to three charities
Monday in the first round of grants.
"I think this is just going to be
the start of something that's going
to really really continue to grow and
continue to help Minnesota first
lady Terry Ventura said at the
Fraser School run by Fraser
Community Services.
Fraser received a grant along with
the Special Olympics of Minnesota
and St. Joseph's Home for Children
in Minneapolis. Mrs. Ventura said
she hopes to spread future grants out
among organizations throughout the
state. She sits on the four-person
volunteer board that determined
who would receive grants.
VMI profits come from royalties
and licensing fees on Ventura dolls,
T-shirts, key chains and other
items. Board member and Ventura
lawyer David Bradley Olsen said
VMI collects roughly 12 percent
from each item sold.
So far, VMI has taken in $66,000,
but that doesn't yet include much of
the revenue from sales of the popu-
lar Ventura dolls, Olsen said.
Revenue to VMI tends to lag a few
months behind actual sales.
The state Reform Party and
Ventura's campaign committee also
profit from the sale of merchandise,
but not through VMI. The two orga-
nizations operate as retailers, buying
the goods from a wholesaler.
The party and Ventura's com-
mittee are subject .to Minnesota
campaign finance laws, which
restrict the amount individuals can
donate to a candidate and require
disclosure of donor names. The
state Campaign Finance and Public
Disclosure Board ruled that VMI is
a private company and not subject
to the laws.
Olsen said he plans to release
more detailed data on VMI soon.
His hope is that 90 percent of the
proceeds flowing to VMI will go to
charity. The remainder would be
used for administrative costs.
The board plans to take applica-
tions for potential future grant win-
ners. Also on the board are VMI
president Doug Friedline,
Ventura's campaign manager, and
Bill Hillsman, who created the cam-
paign's television ads featuring the
Ventura dolls.
Friedline said he hoped the
release of more financial informa-
tion and the names of the grant
recipients would clear up misper-
ceptions about where money from
Ventura merchandise was going.
"Since the beginning, I think
most people have felt the governor
profited personally Friedline said.
Some' 70,000 action figures have
been sold and another 30,000 are on
the way to stores. Friedline said
three new action figures to be deter-
mined would be on the market by
Christmas. Dolls reported to be
under consideration are a Navy
SEAL, Ventura in his tan fringe-
leather jacket and a wrestling figure.
Mrs. Ventura said the common
thread among the first three grant
recipients is they focus on children.
She found out about the Fraser center
when she visited after the election.
The group recruited more than
500 new athletes last year and hopes
to add another 200 this year. �

vamp with money and a cold heart.
In the meantime, the Nazis have
occupied Austria, and the von
Trapps must make a plan of escape.
The intended wedding falls apart,
but through all the singing and
dancing, Georg and Maria discover
they've fallen in love. Maria and
Georg tie the knot and they all run
for the Alps to escape.
Everyone in the cast seemed a
seasoned professional, even the
youngsters who have a wonderful
future ahead of them if they ever
give up on getting a "real" job and
killing themselves like the rest of
us. Especially enjoyable was Gretl,
who was the youngest (and short-
est) of the von Trapp clan, played
by Nancy Shaw, of Greenville. All
the children seemed very natural,
talented, and likable, totally unlike
most real children I know or I'd
consider having one or two of
them of my own.
One of my favorites was Max
Detweiler, played by Eric
Christopher, who added tons of
originality, lighthcartcdness and
individuality all rolled up in one
person.
Another favorite of mine and the
others around mc was Fran
Schmidt, the housekeeper, por-
trayed by Patch Clark. "I liked her a
lot. She seemed to really spice up
the cast said Bob Lee of
Greenville. Patch is an assistant pro-
fessor and coordinator in theater
education at ECU.
"I loved the children the most
his wife Nancy Lee added (sitting
behind her two daughters).
Of course, there were those
songs. You know, the ones that
make you remember sitting on the
porch swing eating ice cream on a
summer night and watching the TV
through the window. I swear, I was-
n't the only one to get a lump in my
throat when "Climb Every
Mountain" started. I mean, these
folks could sing! Even the head
Mother, played by Rebecca
I loodwin who had a very soft, sweet
voice, could raise the roof and make
a dead man dance!
There are no words for the
absolute flawless portrayal of Maria,
played by Christin Mortenson, a
seasoned actress. What a treat to see
and listen to her. I'll never forget
her performance, which overshad-
ows the other Maria, Julie what's
her name?
Hal Davis gave a much more
likable performance than
Christopher Plummcr of Captain
Georg von Trapp. The chemistry
between he and Maria was stun-
ning, and for two hours, I actually
thought he was the father of those
seven kids!
The sets were great and the
direction, by John Shearin, was
superb. The orchestration was
excellent and extremely comple-
mentary to the large array of songs.
No wonder the cast and crew
received a standing ovation.

Its nice to know there are still some people out there who care
enough to volunteer their time to help others in need.
This weekend marked the 15th annual Michael Jordan Celebrity
Golf Classic and was also designated as the "Year of the Volunteer
Without the tireless effort of more than 1,000 volunteers this tour-
nament would not be where it is today.
Though this exciting event is filled with celebrities, golf and fun, it
represents so much more-the reality of compassion and generosity
in our society. In a world that fosters competition and a consistent
attitude of "getting ahead its fantastic to see people pulling
together for the good of individuals that most of the volunteers had
never even met.
That said, it is not enough to rest on the laurels of a well-executed
charitable happening. There are needs in our communities every
minute of every day. We owe it to our neighbors to make every
effort to contribute in any way we can. After all, you never know
where fate might place you tomorrow.
There are more than 7,(KK) student volunteers at KCl These peo-
ple spend countless hours picking up trash, playing basketball with
children or even working as rape companions for Pitt County Not
only are these students arming themselves with the maturity and
communication skills necessary to survive in a constantly evolving
society, but many are also using their volunteer experiences as a
springboard into future careers or as means to build an impressive
resume and list of references.
No matter what your talents or interests are, there is someone who
needs your help. And, there are numerous places you can go to offer
it.
Many organizations have a standing call for volunteers. Some agen-
cies, such as the Real Crisis Center even offer classes and in-house
training to prepare volunteers for counseling positions. Each oppor-
tunity teach valuable lessons that students can use in other facets of
their personal or professional lives.
You can contact the ECU Student Volunteer program for help in
finding an agency that is a good match with your interests and
schedule. They are located in Christenbury gym and can be
reached by calling 328-6432.
We can all reach out and make a difference in our towns and our
world. All it takes is one person at a time.

Traveling gone too far
will take my simplistic life
anytime over that of the over
stressed aud sleep-deprived
executive.
Why buy an apartment if you are
going to leave every weekend?
Why buy a dresser if your clothes
are only going to rotate between a
laundry basket and a suitcase?
Why buy pizza if the leftovers arc
going to mold into a deadly concoc-
tion that releases noxious fumes
when the box is opened? As you
can tell, I have the traveling blues,
and I am hoping for a peaceful
weekend at home soon.
Some people dream of a life of
excitement and adventure on the
road. I am not one of the nomadic
dreamers. I envision a house that
stays concreted to the ground in
one place surrounded by land that I
own, and the only traveling that I
will do are occasional visits to my
family and to the Caribbean during
the sultry Southern summers. For
me, there is no need to go out of
town every single weekend. Some
weekends, I will admit that it is
necessary to escape the Emerald
City. The beach is my refuge for
most of these weekends, but the
Student Recreational Center will
usually do. I have seen a tot of the
United States, and I would rather
spend a week at home with my
friends and fiancee than a week in
any motel anywhere.
I know that it may seem pathet-
ic to you, but the lure of tiny sham-
poo bottles and stiff scratchy com-
forters pulls weakly on this North
Carolinian's soul. I miss my apart-
ment when I am gone, and I espe-
cially miss running to a friend's
house to watch a movie or a sponta-
neous backyard barbecue. You can
only eat at restaurants for so long
before you would kill for a bowl of
Frosted Mini-wheats and milk. As
long as it is in your own bowl and
you get to decide how much milk
goes in the bowl and rather you
want to use a teaspoon or a table-
spoon. Personally, I will always go
for the teaspoon. Alas, I digress. A
room service tray running over with
strawberries and champagne pales
in comparison to a bowl of vanilla
ice cream topped with a generous
squirt of Magic Shell. I know it
sounds strange, but it is true.
I have lived in both worlds; the
world of luxury and simplicity. I
will take my simplistic life anytime
over that of the over stressed and
sleep-deprived executive. I love
my home in Greenville, and this
weekend I am staying home with
my best friends and my teddy bear.

It's that time again
It's time to start thinking about
the 2(HK) presidential elections.
I know, I know, most of you are
thinking, "But Grand Master Funk
P, I'm just an average college stu-
dent who cares nothing about the
wild world of politics. I mean, I'm
lucky enough if I can make it out of
bed in the morning to go to class
Yes, well true as that may be, when
election day rolls around next year,
you, CienX (a.k.a. GenNext, GcnN-
Sync and GenTinkyWinky) will be
able to play a pivotal roll at the bal-
lot booth.
Let's start with the potential can-
didates. In the left corner, wearing
green trunks made from environ-
mentally-safe fibers, is Al "I came
so close to kicking Bill out" Gore.
Now when examining the people
vying for the highest office in the
land (the second highest is being a
model photographer. I lello, nurse!),
it is important to look at the special
qualities that are needed for the
presidency.
Like hair, for instance. The vice
pre is starting to acquire a bald spot
in the back, but he still has his orig-
inal hair color. This will probably
help him pick up some votes on the
West Coast. Also he's relatively
young, and one of his daughters
looks good, if I remember right. Oh,
and he's not a member of that evil
party known as the Republicans.
They call themselves the "Party of
Lincoln I lello! I le's been dead
for more than 100 years! Can we
update already!
Theoretically, congressional
leaders Dick Gephardt and Tom
Daschle might be testing the waters
for the White House, but Gore
could take them both on with one
hand tied behind his back, blind-
folded, jumping through a flaming
hoop, with a man-eatingsorry, frot
carried away there.
The current Republican front
runners appear to be Texas Gov.
George W. (the VV stands for "Won
thanks to my name") Bush and
Flizabeth Dole. Now Georgie-boy
knows how to campaign well, and
he received a large percentage of
the Hispanic vote in his last elec-
tion, a vote which usually goes to
the democrats. Both he and Gore
are sons of successful politicians
(not that anyone needs reminding
here but, and I'm looking in the
freshmen's general direction,
George Bush was president before
Clinton. You know, when Vanilla Ice
was c(H)l). Gov. Bush also lixiks good
(I guess), so that won't hurt him at
the polls. But ladies, don't be
fooled. He has the heart of a snake
and has left the toilet seat up on
numerous occasions (okay, I can't
prove that, but then I don't have to).
Mrs. Dole is an intelligent, kind
lady from a small town in North
Carolina (translate small town as "I
forgot where she was from"). She
was the president of the American
Red Cross and knows how
Washington, D.C. works. But, she
has never touched an elected polit-
ical office before (well, I suppose
when she touches her husband, she
is touching a former senator, but I
don't need that picture in my mind.
Sorry, Bob). She's just another Ross
Perot, except for being sane, and
Colin Powell, except for being a
woman. Of course there is the
attraction of voting for the first
woman president, but sex should
play no part in voting (everyone
stop laughing). Of course, Libby
hasn't even officially announced
that she's running, yet. But I'll tell
you something, if the Republicans
nominate her as their presidential
candidate, you will be able to knock
me over with an ECU One Card. I
will also take back half the bad
things I have ever said about the
GOP. Well, maybe a quarter.
So I hope I have been able to
shed a little light on the next presi-
dential election. For those of you
wondering why you should care
about the 2000 race, remember this:
A person who doesn't vote is auto-
matically placed on the list for jury
duty. Everyone thinks that it's the
other way around, but's that's exact-
ly what "they" want you to think.
Muliahaha!

Searching for a good findl
is the time of year that often
you can pick up a good sofa or
chair that someone deemed not
good enough for their butt
cheeks.
Never underestimate the power of
used furniture that can be found at
a dumpster. The dumpster is a ver-
itable cornucopia of goodness.
Recently, on a muggy, rainy,
Greenville afternoon, my room-
mates and I acquired a high quality,
"pre-owned" entertainment center
that was sitting next to a dumpster
in my apartment complex that had
just been thrown out. Just three
weeks ago, we acquired a rocking
chair from the same place. It
looked like it had seen better days,
yet after covering it with a blanket
it was like new. The result was a
new chair for us and the cost was
zero dollars. Sergeant Savings
would approve.
Now some would say "I would
never lower myself to picking up
someone else's used furniture from
next to a dumpster Well, if you
can afford not to do this and can
afford all new furniture, then enjoy.
I used to be one of those upper
middle class Betty Crocker neigh-
borhood types that said the same
thing. However, Ed McMahon has
not visited me with my $10,000,000
check yet, so I am happy with my
used entertainment center, sofa,
and chairs. My bed is brand new,
and I do not advocate sleeping in
used beds.
Often furniture people throw I

the reason that they throw the fur-
niture out is that they are moving J
and they don't want to deal with
the hassle of moving an entertain- j

early in the Reagan administration. L
Believe it or not, as I sat in my fr

apartment decorations. Living?;
cheap is not so bad. My apartment m
now has a plethora of used but good Y'

once fixed up, would make Martha �;�

Celebrity Skins
game Is success
Hyde-White, Morgan
tie for $50,000 purse
Peter Dawvot
sports editor
The Michael Jordan
Celebrity Skins Game teed
off Friday for a chance to help
out for a good cause as well as
an opportunity for fellow
celebrities to challenge each
other for bragging rights.
The competitors, Jordan,
Joe Morgan, Jerry Rice and
last year's Skins winner Alex
Hyde-White, offered ticket
holders an exciting match.
After 30 minutes of prac-
tice swings many spectators
were still star struck by the
start of the game.
While the focus was on
having fun, it was obvious
that others things were up for
grabs. The $50,000 purse was
split between the houses
each winner sponsored.
Hyde-White started
strongly, determined to cap-
ture another Skins title, and
he won the first hole.
However, he would soon find
himself facing stiff competi-
tion not from "His Airness
but in baseball great Joe
Morgan.
Morgan and Hyde-White
dueled throughout the morn-
ing offering spectators addi-
tional entertainment apart
from the the Michael Jordan
and Jerry Rice show.
While Jordan may have
had a rough day on the
course, fans did not seem to
mind.The $50 per person
event was a chance for fans to
see an up close and personal
view of the the man who rein-
vented the game of basket-
ball.
With every swing, every
twinkle in his smile and every
missed opportunity to win
the hole, camera flashes illu-
minated the Greenville
Country Club.
Approaching the 17th
hole, Morgan took the lead
over Hyde-White who had
been dominating most of the
day. But Hyde-White was not
finished. On the 18th hole,
he charged ahead to sink the
putt and tie Morgan for the
day with both winning
$25,000 for their Ronald
McDonald Houses.
"This is my second year,
my second Skins game and
the second year that I haven't
lost Hyde-White said. "It
was great to put a putt in on
18 in front of everybody just
like last year with the big win,
and this year with the tie with
Joe. I haven't been beat yet,
and to be around this kind of
company and say that is terrif-
ic
When the Skins game was
over, the focus soon turned to

Celebrities swing Into
action for good cause

Excitement builds
quickly for tournament
Peter Dawvot
sports editor
Athletes, screen stars and local
patrons battled it out this week-
end to help provide better funding
for area Ronald McDonald Houses
in the 15th annual Michael Jordan
Celebrity Golf Classic.
With the mixture of both
celebrities and Greenville locals,
the event proved-to be one in
which scores did not matter. The
memories taken from the tourna-
ment would never be forgotten. It
did not matter whether one had a
good day on the course or not, this
was a once in a lifetime opportunity.
Celebrities were paired up with
sponsors in a drawing held Friday
night The group was composed of
one celebrity and four sponsors
who were all randomly selected.
The tournament started at 9:30
a.m. Preceding the tournament, an
entourage of photographers, writers
and other news media listened as
Jordan held the annual press con-
ference, in which he touched on
Jerry Rice hits one out of the sand.

issues such as life after basketball
and the life of basketball after
Jordan.
Jordan said that since his retire-
ment, he has spent more rime with his
children discovering the little things
which he had taken for granted.
"It is a transition from the rat
race I lived for for 15 years of being
on the road and searching for the
perfect game or the championship at
the end of the rainbow
Jordan said he feels that the
Lakers will be very happy with
their new coach, former Bulls
coach, Phil Jackson.
"I actually think they will be
happy with Phil; they've got the
talent Jordan said. "It has always
been there, but it's how you utilize
it in one focus situation. I think
Phil is their man
Otherwise, Jordan did not pay
much attention to the game. He
did not even watch the final game
between the Spurs and Knicks.
"I didn't view the game, but I'm
pretty sure that San Antonio is pret-
ty happy right now Jordan said. "I
remember what it takes to win a
championship � a lot of hard work
and determination. And when it
finally comes to that ultimate
release, the big game, a lot of pres-
sure and excitement is released. So
I imagine that they are pretty
happy for the night and the rest of
the summer
Jordan did mention the possi-
bility of following in the footsteps
of another athlete at the golf classic
Mario Lemuix, by possibly pur-
chasing a basketball team.
"The whole ordeal with the
Hornets; I didn't search it out It
just fell into my lap Jordan said.
"I evaluated it and was pretty seri-
ous about it, and it's the most unfor-
tunate thing that it didn't happen,
but I'm not going out and seeking
opportunities
Jordan did well at the start of
the tournament during the Skins
game on Friday. Others did not
seem to have as much practice as
Jordan. Evander Holyfield and
others may not play at the caliber
Jerry Rice, Alex Hyde-White, Michael
Jordan and Joe Morgan smile at the
Skins game.

of Tiger Woods, but there was ho
need for that level of skill in this
golf match-these golfers were out
for another reason.
Jordan commented often that
the tournament was an excellent
way to help provide money for the
Ronald McDonald Houses that offer
young people and their families
assistance during a medical crisis.
"I take great pride in repre-
senting and being a part of this
because of what it stands for and its
benefits Jordan said. "As you
know, the Ronald McDonald
House has done great things for
great people around the world, not
just in North Carolina
Throughout the tournament,
cheers and applause were present
at every hole, particularly when
Jordan was playing.
Don McCormick and his wife
Ruth have participated in the tourna-
ment for several years, and they say
that this year was the smoothest yet
"This is our third year down
here as volunteers said Don
McCormick. "Every year the event
seems to be getting bigger and big-
Jordan stands, pensive about his game.

After two grueling days of golf,
two teams were still tied for first
Mario Lemieux's squad and the
foursome playing with NBC's
senior correspondent, John Daly,
were tied at 40 under after 36 holes
before the tournament was decided
at the putt-off at the Greenville
Country Club.
The putt-off continued for ten
holes before Daly's designated put-
ter, David Bridger, sank the win-
ning putt The third place finisher
was Cathy Lee Crosby's team
which finished at 36 under par.
Jordan contemplates has last shot before deciding his next move.

Women's track coach Charles
"Choo" Justice announced his retire-
ment last Friday saying that he
wanted to spend more time with his
family. Justice has been with the
ECU Athletic program since 1980.
The Michael Jordan Celebrity Golf
Classic wrapped up last weekend
providing needed support for area
Ronald McDonald Houses through-
out the state. During the Celebrity
Skins game winners included Alex
Hyde-White and former baseball
great Joe Morgan who both raised
$25,000 for their home. Jordan and
, San Francisco 49er Jerry Rice how-
ever did not manage to win a hole.
Overall for the whole weekend much
success was received as the athletes
and celebrities teamed up to donate
well over $200,000 to the charity.
The ECU Men's basketball team
has been voted to finish second in
the CAA league in a vote by confer-
ence coaches. The vote was held
earlier in the summer and announced
Wednesday. Beating out ECU was
George mason University who
received the majority of the votes
with five. ECU received two first
place votes, and Richmond and
Virginia Commonwealth both
received one first place vote. Next
year ECU welcomes back all but
one of the starters from last year
squad and has new potential since
given a new head coach Bill Herrion

Pirate football to get
new defensive coordinator
Rose to bring new
style to pirates football
Sl'SANNK Mll.KNKKVlCH
SKNIOK BIlTfl
Pirate fans will witness changes to
the play style in the 1999 football
season. The Pirates' defense will
have a different style of defense on
the field this year as they are lead
by a new defensive coordinator,
Tim Rose.
Tim Rose joined the Pirates
coaching squad in December with
18 years of Division 1-A expert
ence, including the past two years,
as defensive coordinator at Boston
College. Coaches and players alike
are optimistic about the new addi-
tion to the team.
"We are extremely excited to
have someone of Tim's caliber join-
ing our fixuball staff said Ltjgan
during the announcement of Rose's
hiring in December. "He brings an
abundance of experience and an
aggressive, attacking style of
defense to our program
Rose plans to change the Pirate defense.
Prior to Boston College, Rose
served as defensive coordinator at
the University of Cincinnati in 1995
and at the University of Memphis
from 1992-1994. There, also with
duties as assistant head coach, he
lead the Tigers to three consecutive
top 20 national rankings in total
defense.
Rose also served at Miami
University of Ohio as defensive
coordinator from 1978 to 1982 and
as head coach from 1983 to 1989.
"It is the nature of the business
as he (Rose) bounced around to
different colleges throughout the
90's said Norm Rcilly, Sports
Information Director. "So he has a
lot of experience both as assistant
and head coach
In 1998 East Carolina ranked
95th nationally among 112
Division 1-A schools in rushing
defense, 61st in scoring defense,
and 65th in total defense.
The Pirates look to better their
ranking this season with a 3-4
defense, three defensive linemen
and four linebackers, as opposed to
the 4-3 defense they had before the
addition of Rose.
"As opposed to the 4-3, the
fourth rusher isn't identified by his
hand on the ground Rose said.
"You can bring any of the four line-
backers or all of them. We won't be
predictable
The Pirates began working on
the new style during spring train-
ing and liked what they saw.
"I think they've come a long
way, " Logan said. "They had some
missed assignments that Coach
Rose is concerned about, but
they're very enthusiastic, and
they're having a good time with
that style of defense
Paul Jette, the Pirates defensive
coordinator for the past five seasons
will remain on the staff but will
change his duties to defensive
backs coach.
Rose is excited to be working
with the Pirates now and hopes to
help improve the program.
"I am looking forward to the
challenge of working at East
Carolina said Rose. "The East
Carolina program is on the rise and
it is exciting to become a part of it"
urs fans welcome NBA champions
Team clinches series
;th 18-11 victory
SAN ANTONIO (Al) The San
Antonio Spurs came home
Saturday to share their NBA cham-
pionship trophy with a city starved
for a winner.
The Spurs won their first NBA
title in the franchise's 26-year histo-
ry, beating the New York Knicks in
five games in the finals. San
Antonio clinched the series with a
78-77 victory Friday night that
i
touched off a downtown celebra-
tion for which fans had ached.
That the Spurs won the series in
New York's Madison Square
Garden instead of the Alamodome
mattered little to the thousands
who greeted the team's plane at
San Antonio International Airport
in the state of Texas Saturday after-
noon.
Nor did it matter that the cham-
pionship capped a lockout-short-
ened season in which the league
was often criticized for sloppy play.
"It's about showing that nice
guys do finish first. Hopefully, this
is the start of a dynasty. There's a
lot of pride with this. It's as impor-
tant as the Alamo fan Frank
Cassiano said. "Remember the
Alamo! Remember the Spurs
City merchants agreed.
Downtown stores were fully
stocked with Spurs championship
T-shirts, and congratulatory ban-
ners hung in shop windows.
The Spurs returned the appreci-
ation with a full-page ad in the San
Antonio Express-News thanking
fans for their support.
Police measured some of that
support at more than 12,000 fans
strong when the team arrived
Saturday
0
The crowd alternated between
chanting "Go, Spurs, Go and
singing Queen's "We Are The
Champions" as the plane taxied
onto the runway and pulled up to
the gate.
Guard Avery Johnson, who hit
the winning shot, was the first to
emerge from the plane holding the
gold NBA Championship trophy
over his head.
Center David Robinson was
right behind, and carried the trophy
to a makeshift stage and thrust it
over his head before passing it
down so that fans could touch it
Rain keeps Wimbledon competitors indoors
Inclement weather
prevents matches
WIMBLEDON, England (AP)
Jim Courier and Tim I lennun
began warming up on Centre Court
for the resumption of their rain-
delayed match. They hit three or
four shots before scurrying off as
the showers returned.
Out on Court One, Steffi Graf
was ready to pick up where she left
off against Belgian qualifier Kim
Olijsters when the drizzle sent
them back to the locker room.
That was the only tennis played
at Wimbledon on Tuesday as rain
washed out the entire day's pro-
gram.
It was the 30th complete
washout in Wimbledon history and
the first since 1997, when two
straight days were wiped out by
rain.
After a virtually rain-free first
week, the curse of Wimbledon
struck for a second straight day.
The start time on all courts was
brought forward to noon (1100
GMT) because of the backlog of
,4ri'tffjtei ��
matches from Monday, when only
five of 16 fourth-round matches
were completed.
But persistent rain pelted the All
England Club from early Tuesday
morning, and the showers contin-
ued throughout the day.
Wimbledon chief executive
Christopher Gorringe announced at
6:45 p.m. (1745 GMT):
"Unfortunately our optimism has
not been rewarded. Reluctantly, it
has been decided to abandon play
There had been a brief respite at
around 2 p.m. (1300GMT), and the
covers came off the courts.
Courier and Henman walked
onto Centre Court at 2:30 p.m.
(1330 GMT) but barely had time to
hit a few balls before retreating
indoors. Henman was leading 4-6,
7-5, 7-5, 4-3 when the match was
halted Monday.
"I saw Jim Courier and Tim
Henman come on, hit a few balls
and then go off again said Pat
Mylcs of Liverpool. "This is the
English summer. Get used to it
Graf, who was two games from
victory Monday against Clijsters, 6-
2, 4-2, warmed up briefly on Court
One before packing up her racket
bag and heading back inside.
Other matches yet to begin
included Boris Becker vs. Patrick
Rafter, Venus Williams vs. Anna
Kournikova, Pete Sampras vs.
Daniel Nestor, Goran Ivanisevic vs.
Todd Martin, and Greg Rusedski
vs. Mark Philippoussis.
Players kept busy by practicing
on Wimbledon's indoor courts or
hanging out in the lounge, playing
cards and munching candy bars.
Fans huddled under umbrellas
and queued for strawberries and
cream, doughnuts and yogurt and
champagne and Pimms.

tion (having advertised via Chapel
Hill News. News & Observer & News
Argus & exploring with Legal Aid
Service & being referred to ACLU
who referred me to Legal Referral
Service & they having none listed,
though did consult an education
law' lawyer listed) I filed a petition
for judicial review' with the Wayne
Co. Superior Court to address a
warning of trespass issued by ECU.
There evolved 2 matters of conster-
nation at the point: 1. The fee of $71
to file 2. Would the filing be inter-
preted as sueing After asking if the
fee was "just" and 'if one did not
have $71 I was shown an indigent'
form. On that form one could
check either petition to sue' or peti-
tion to appeal In recognizing that in
a much earlier TCP. report I had
stated "I will not sue anyone for
any matter post, present or future
that doctors would feelbe free to
address public health issues I rec-
ognize the petition to appeal' re-
flects my present action & respects
my previous statement. Had sought
a week or so prior the proper for-
ums for petition for judicial review.
Was told none existed. Prepared pe-
tition according to Article 4 Chapter
150B of the NC General Statutes

cess of filing I was informed a 'sum-
