effort.
Damage to University
totals more than $4 million
Figure does not include
labor, electronic costs
Holly Harris
editor-in-chief
Even as communities begin to
recover from what environmental
and agricultural experts are calling
the Flood of the Century, organiza-
tions around the eastern part of the
state are still reeling from record
financial losses. ECU has proved to
be no exception with officials tally-
ing damage to the university at
more than $4 million.
According to Dr. George Harrell,
assistant vice chancellor of
Business Affairs, the university suf-
fered $4,286 million worth of capi-
tal damage. Harrell said that this
figure is not yet final, and includes
only damage to "real property"
such as buildings, control switches
and steam lines. There are still no
concrete estimates to measure the
loss of networking and telephone
equipment, and this sum also does
not include the $100,000 of outside
labor costs and the $400,000 of
employee work hours the clean-up
effort necessitated.
Harrell said that the most seri-
ous damage was sustained to the
General Classroom and Howell
Science buildings. Water in the
machine rooms, where most of the
buildings' computing and building
control equipment was kept,
reached more than four feet deep.
"One of the major nodes in GC
took a significant hit Harrell said.
"It was the same area as all the high
voltage equipment that brings elec-
tricity into the building
Ruptured steam lines and
clogged sewer lines are still being
repaired, and according to Harrell it
will be next summer before the
university can fully correct all the
damage that Floyd wrought on
campus. The cost for this catastro-
phe is being absorbed by both
insurance and FEMA monies.
Many Facilities Services employees worked long shifts to get the campus back In working order.

However, some existing' university
funds will have to be redistributed.
'The rest of the money will be
collected probably from reallocat-
ing university funds and perhaps
redirecting repair and renovation
funds Harrell said. "I have no
idea at this time what projects will
be affected because of that"
Restoring the University to
working order took 200 workers
20,000 hours and 10 days. Many of
these employees were working
nearly 24-hour shifts taking breaks
of only 3 or four hour in order to
sleep. Some of these workers even
had to be specially transported to
the University because the area
where they lived had been washed
away by flooding.
According to Harrell, the
Facilities Services team started
cleaning up Floyd's mess the
Thursday after the storm with only
80 of their nearly 300 employees.
The ordeal was complicated by an
unpredictable utility availabilities .
'The most difficult thing we
were dealing with was that every-
thing changed and kept changing
Harrell said. "We would have elec-
tricity and then no electricity or we
would have electricity but no watef
that was potable. Every one of
those situations required us to
develop a new operating plan. We
felt we couldn't get out of a con-
stantly reactive mode
Campus officials dealt with this
problem by using all of their nearly
20 generators to completely supply
the campus with electricity when
city utilities were lost.
"When GUC went offline for a
long period, we initiated a backup
plan that put 2.8 megawatts of
peaking generator online Harrell
said. "We call it the biggest Y2K
test imaginable, at that point we
were effectively operating without
any utility support
Earnest Marshburn, director of
Strategic Initiatives for ECU
Computing Information Services
said one of the most disturbing
aspects of this utility downtime was
the inability to update the
University web page�a major
source of information for students
stranded in other towns. However
there was no information lost and
school officials and CIS staff mem-
bers have been working feverishly
to keep the site updated with the
ntest current information.
"It has been ongoing, almost a
non-ending process since the
power went out on Sunday
Marshburn said.
It will be months before campus
is fully operational again. But
Harrell said he is certain that he has
the staff necessary to make the
work happen.
"If the Facilities Services per-
sonnel had been on the the crew of
the Titanic they'd have patched
the hole, pumped out the water,
cleaned it up, and put on a fresh
coat of paint before it got to New
York Harbor Harrell said. "The
passengers would never have know
anything had happened. I am
extremely proud of our facilities

Flood Relief Resource Center aids victims

ASSISTANT FEATURES EDITOR
The University has created a
resource center in order to help stu-
dents and staff recover from their
losses due to the hurricane.
"It is a university-wide effort
said Dr. Kris Smith, dean of
Student Development.
"Administration was concerned
about getting services available to
students and decided we needed a
center to offer a variety of services
to meet our students' and staffs
needs
The Flood Relief Resource
Center set up 12 stations to meet
students, staff and faculty's imme-
diate needs with both on-campus
and community assistance.
"Most of the tables are staffed
by people in the area in terms of
the University departments and
students are working through com-
munity organizations such as the
United Way Smith said.
Students and staff members
who have suffered from damage
and loss are encouraged to visit the
resource center and fill out infor-
mation forms to assess their situa-
tion.
"People working with the
United Way help staff and students
learn about community services
such as the Red Cross, Salvation
Army and Social Services to help
meet those needs Smith said.
Many of the on-campus organi-
zations have set up tables at the
center to meet students' needs.
According to Smith, the Student
Government Association (SGA)
offers emergency loans to students
ranging from $50 - $200 for stu-

In the wake of lost homes and major
flood damage, most hurricane vic-
tims pay little attention to the small-
er after-effects of a hurricane.
Dr. Trenton Davis, a professor in
the department of environmental
health, hopes to increase public
awareness of one particular post-
flood pest' mosquitoes.
"North Carolina and Eastern
North Carolina are good habitats for
those blood suckers Davis said.
Biting mosquitoes breed in flood
waters, standing water in back
yards, birdbaths and other places
where stagnant water is present
Eggs can be laid and then hatch
weeks later.
Davis was contacted by Craven
and Pitt County health departments
to estimate the number of mosqui-
toes expected in the next few days.
The local health departments will
then use those numbers to decide
what their next step will be, which
could possibly be to air-deliver pes-
ticides.
"It's hard to predict whether
they'll be used Davis said.
After hurricanes Fran and
Bonnie, pesticides by air were used.
Davis, along with some of his
students, will acquire his mosquito
count through a "landing count"
method. This procedure is done by
extending one's aim and allowing
mosquitoes to land on it for one
mihute. Then the number of "land-
ings" are counted.
Davis, who did a trial test in his
Greenville backyard, discovered
that the number of mosquitoes has
so far doubled. Davis counted 10 -
15 mosquitoes this week, compared
with the five to six he found before
the hurricane.
With an increased number of
mosquitoes in the area, work by
flood damage relief workers may be
hampered.
Davis stated that a potential
mosquito-carried disease is Eastern
equine encephalitis, a viral disease.
The disease seriously affects the
central nervous system and symp-
toms can include headaches.
"There is no reason to believe
that there will be any disease con-
cerns Davis said.
Pre-flood analyses of birds and
bugs showed no presence of the
viral disease.
In his work, Davis is also deter-
mining types of mosquito species
that will be present
'There will be the Asian tiger
mosquito, which is very aggressive
he said. "It will make life tough
Davis also hopes to get students
working with the local county
health departments by taking them
to flooded residences to examine
the sites for fungi and mold, which
could cause allergic reactions to
returning residents.

FCU faculty and staff met
Tuesday afternoon to discuss the
damage and aftermath of
Hurricane Floyd. The administra-
tion's view is that campus clean-
up and repair will take time.
; According to Nice Chancellor
Richard Brown, who addressed
the faculty, Floyd's winds were
not as strong as expected, but the
campus suffered damage from the
14 inches of rain that fell in an
over 24-hour period.
Brown also stated that the
Emergency Response Team, com-
posed of members from various
university departments, met once
or twice a day, every day for two
weeks, since Sept. 15.
The Emergency Response
Team focused their efforts on
restoring utilities, maintaining and
feeding students and relief work-
ers and processing end-of-thc-
montli payrolls, which were in
peril iluc to power outages.
"The good news is we survived
it Brown said. "The bail news is
that we w ill have to deal with it for
some time
Brown also spent time dis-
pelling rumors, including that the
myth that 5,000 students were
withdrawing from ECU.
According to Vice Chancellor
for Student Life Gary Moore, only
four students have withdrawn
from the university. Among them,
two withdrew to help their hurri-
cane-stricken families and one
student is reconsidering.
"The lid' family is suffering,
there is no doubt about that
Moore said.
Moore further stated that hous-
ing has been found for most stu-
dents and that a list of families
who are willing to house students
is being made available.
As for university damage,
Brown stated that all parking lots
were repaired and safe, excluding
the commuter lot at the bottom of

AT TIAA-CREF,
LOW EXPENSES ARE
A HIGH PRIORITY.
All financial companies charge
operating fees and expenses -
some more than others. Of course, the
lower the expenses you pay, the better.
That way, more of your money goes
where it should - toward building a
comfortable future.
As the largest retirement system in
the world,1 we have among the lowest
expenses in the insurance and mutual
fund industries.
In fact, TIAA-CREF's 0.35 average
fund expenses are a fraction of the
expense charges of comparable funds.
It's one reason why Morningstar says,
"TIAA-CREF sets the standard in the
financial services industry
A focus on your future
Of course, expenses are only one factor
to consider when you make an invest-
ment decision. Morningstar also noted
our commitment to "consumer education,
service" and "solid investment perfor-
mance Because that can make a differ-
ence in the long run, too.
At TIAA-CREF, we believe people
would like to spend more in retirement,
not on their retirement company. Today,
over two million people count on that
approach to help them build financial
security. So can you.

Downpours cause new flooding, evacuations in hard-hit area of N.C.
RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) � Six inches of rain kicked off new flooding today in an area already devastated by I lurricane Floyd's inunda-
tion, washing out roads and a spillway. People were urged to evacuate two residential areas.
The pouring rain that fell during the night, cut through roads and made bridges in Wayne County and other areas rtnpassable this
morning southeast of Raleigh.
In Goldsboro, 80 percent of the downtown streets were flooded this morning by Stony Creek, which flows through the middle of
town, said National Guard Maj. Dave Culbreth.
"The city's almost like an island Culbreth said. "We have some flooding in town again. We're almost back to ground zero
Rising water also poured over the top of the Lake Waekena dam three miles southeast of Goldsboro and washed out the spillway, and
National Guardsmen went door to door urging residents to leave the Walnut Creek subdivision. Only a handful of people left.
However, Tom Ditt, spokesman for the state emergency management office, said the wash-out of the spillway helped relieve pressure
that might have caused a failure of the dam itself.
North of Cioldsboro, guardsmen were sent to tell people living near Bear Creek Dam they, too, may need to evacuate as uatcr washed
over that dam, Culbreth said.
It is the second time in two weeks that some Walnut Creek residents have been flooded.

LETTER
TO EDITOR
Over the past two weeks ECU and the city of Greenville have been forced
to pick up the pieces of the devastation caused by I lurricane Floyd. For
many of us this has been a trying time-a time tilled with insecurity and
doubt. Fortunately, for many of us there has been some help.
(lountlcss organizations ranging from thenircd W'av to I'KM.V to vari-
ous local community organizations have been there for us all. ECl itself has
provided a safe haven for many of the victims left homeless by Floyd, as well
as assembled a Flood Relief Center to provide a place for us to find help.
Thousands of volunteers from as close as Western North (iarolina and from
as far away as (lalifornia have traveled to Kastcrn North (Carolina to help.
lb all these people and organizations we would like to offer our sincerest
thanks; without you it won III be impossible for many of us to tread forward.
We owe many of you more than we could possibly repav.
lint perhaps the most important people to thank are our friends and neigh-
bors here in Greenville. Without these people thousands of us would be
homeless or alone. Your compassion should be commended. It is times like
these we can truly, call ourselves a community.
Now. however comes the hardest part. Do nor forget that just because
Floyd has passed us that the struggle is over. Remember that just because
everything has worked out for you, it may have destroyed someone else's
home or livelihood. The devastation caused by Flovd will take vears for
many to overcome, and it is our job to make sure that they don't go have to
overcome it alone.
Destruction of goalposts reflects badly
It was a beautiful fall night in
Raleigh. Around 46,000 ECU alum-
ni, fans and students had just wit-
nessed a spectacular, come-from-
behind victory over the ninth-
ranked Miami Hurricanes.
Then, before we could celebrate-
in the stands and before even the
players could celebrate on the field,
several hundred young men
ignored the announcer's requests.
tore down the fence, swarmed onto
the field, and tore down both goal
posts.
We fans in the stands watched
with disgust and booed their
actions as they paraded the goal
posts up and down the field. We
then left the stadium feeling pride-
in what our team had accomplished
and at the same time deep embar-
rassment for how these young men
were destroying much of what our
football program had accomplished
over the last 10 years.
To the North Carolina State
(Diversity administration, alumni,
fans and students: We are sincerely
grateful for the wonderful gesture
you made in loaning Cartcr-Finlcy
Stadium for the EClMiami game.
We deeply regret and apologize for
the manner in which these several
hundred young men showed their
lack of appreciation and respect for
your gesture. Your facility is truly
beautiful anil one you should be
proud of.
To the ECU coaches and play-
ers: We are proud of the way you
played and the character you exhib-
ited in this game. We alumni .and
fans will remember this game for a
long, long time.
'lb the KGl' alumni, fans and
students who attended this game:
Thank you for your attendance and
your support. The atmosphere was
electric. You were loud. You stayed
until the end, not giving up on a 20-
3 half-time score. You are the best
fans in the world.
lii the voting men who stormed
the field and destroyed the goal
posts: Thank you for robbing more
than 45,000 fans of the satisfaction
of savoring this upset victory.
Thank you for preventing the
players anil coaches from celebrat-
ing a very hard fought and richly
deserved win. They had to leave
the field for their own safety.
Thank you for "repaying the
hospitality of out hosts as C
put it, in such a selfish, shortsighted
and immature manner.
Congratulations, you have managed
in a few short minutes to set back
the KCl' football program more
than II) years in the terms of respect
and dignity winch have worked so
long and hard for.
Sincerely,

LETTER
TO EDITOR
Fans' behavior reflects badly on school
I have received numerous calls
from universities aeross the state
asking what can we do to help ECU
during its recovery from Hurricane
Floyd. NC State offered, and we
accepted, the opportunity to play
our September 25th game against
Miami in their stadium. What a
game!
Last Saturday, no doubt, gave us
cause to celebrate. We are all very
proud of our football ptogram its
well as the tenacity demonstrated
by the players. This victory over
the Miami Hurricanes, following
I lurricane Floyd, gave us a much
needed diversion from the trauma
felt by this community.
I did not travel to Raleigh wi
our alumni and students bu
watched the game on 'IV. I was
very saddened as I watched our stu-
dents tear down the goal post at the
end of a beautiful game. This
behavior provides opportunity for
criticism that ECU does not
deserve. Yes, we need to celebrate
but not in a destructive wav. We
must respect the property and
rights of others just as we desire
and deserve the same.
It is important for our students,
K'eially those who took part in
le destruction of the goal post, to
extend a sincere apology to N( LSI:
anil resolve ourselves to continue
celebrating our victories but never
again in a destructive manner.

As I sit here in the wee hours of the
morning, thinking of a subject to
write about, my mind is reflecting
on my experiences of the past two
weeks and surviv ing "the Flood of
the Century There are many
aspects of the devastation which I
could write about, but I really don't
know which aspect to highlight.
I could talk about the personal
loss of im clothing, television.
VCR, stereo, etc. as I was leaving
K( 't on the Thursday of the flood.
I had to ditch my possessions in
order to lighten the weight of m
car to get through the rising water
on I lighvvav .Vv
I could talk about how m pos-
sessions seem of little importance
while I volunteered at the Tarboro
High School shelter, dealing with
people who lost everything they
owned, barely escaping with their
lives.
I could talk about the fear and
total disbelief of the people of
Tarboro and I'rinccville as they wit-
nessed their homes and lives being
submerged in the raging waters of
the 'liir River.
I could talk about the Town of
I'rinccville�its historic signifi-
cance of being the first town in the
nation to be chartered by freed
slaves. I low even then, there were
life-threatening floods that plagued
the citizens, yet I'rinccville always
bounced back from adversity. The
reason for this spirit in the people is
reflected in the words of
I'rineev ille's mayor, the honorable-
Delia Perkins, when she said, "We
stand on the word of God
I could talk about the rush of
emotions that flowed through me
when I was part of a tour, led by
Sheriff James Knight and the mili-
tary accompanied by Dick Gregory,
into I'rinccville and seeing the
many caskets, coffins and vaults
floating throughout a section of
I'rinccville as a result of being
unearthed from the local cemetery.
I wondered if any contained the
remains of any of my numerous rel-
atives buried there.
I could talk about the spirit of
the victims of this disaster, who
could easily give up hope for a
renewed future and wallow in their
misery. The mass majority have not
given up and will not give up, but
they will trust in the mercy of God
and they will know that CJod takes
nothing away from us. but that lie
will replace it with something bet-
ter. The people believe this and
these thoughts will see us through.
I could talk about how people
sacrificed their lives helping others.

The Tar River is
slowly relinquishing
its grip on the apart-
ment complex which
bears its name.
Water-beaten fences
around patios tilt at
crazy angles; mud-
caked cars line the
abandoned streets; a
sodden mattress lies
washed up beside a
lake that was once a
river. And behiiul all of this chaos is
the swiftiv flowing current of the
Tar itself, swollen tojecord-brcak-
ing proportions.
All around the river, the air reeks
of sewage and brine. The soggy
ground is covered in an ashy crust
of dried mud which coats every leaf
and blade of grass, and leaves a
grayish line of demarcation on the
outside of buildings as the water
slowly recedes.
Police officers guard every street
that leads to a Hooded area, while
residents are forced to wait, once
their homes are dry enough to
enter, for inspectors to safety-check
their buildings. Front doors spray-
painted with an orange "X" are safe
to enter; houses marked with an
"X" inside a box are condemned.
Sheri Ciiddons, a senior health
and fitness major, gazes across
police caution tape and muddy
water to her apartment building,
which is still partially submerged.
She wonders if her second-floor
apartment has been Hooded, and if
anything inside can be salvaged.
Authorities have told her she'll
have to wait another four to six
weeks to find out.
"It's come down a lot since yes-
terday she said. "Cosh, it stinks.
It could've been worse
These students have a lot on
their minds jusr now. The search
for new apartments and concern for
what thev were unable to save from
tlood waters precludes academic
concerns for rhe present.
Hut most are finding their
Greenville neighbors hospitable at'
the very least.
According to Shelly Myers,
director of Adult and Commuter
Services at KCU, hundreds of local
families have offered rooms in their
homes to displaced students, and
apartment complexes are cooperat-

to provide temporary leases and
other ways to help students who
now find themselves homeless.
When sophomore Randy
Minton piled a few clothes on top
of his bed before leaving for work at
the Ramada Inn, he had no idea

apartment, where water levels
reached six feet.

Behind the Hroily building at I'itt
County Memorial Hospital, volun-
teers are taking care of I lurricane
Floyd's most silent and helpless
victims.
Since the evacuation of the
flooded Tar River area, a non-prof-
it group called KARS (Kmcrgency
Rescue Animal Sen ice), based in
Sacramento, Calif has rescued
about 660 animals from I'irr (lounty
homes.
KARS Director Terry Crisp has
directed a group of 15 volunteer
coordinators from all over the
limed States in rescue efforts dur-
ing this and other national disasters.
Ten coordinators were called to
North Carolina after Floyd to begin
rescuing local pets, which are being
housed in the Brody Building.
"The animals have been
brought in primarily by volunteers,
rescue teams said Crisp, walking
through the rooms of the temporary
KARS headquarters.
The main entrance is also a
warehouse, stacked neatly ceiling-
high with crates of canned and dry
dog and cat food, bottled water and
piles of leashes and collars. One
room off to the
side is devoted
entirely ro bags
of dry food,
which lie in
drifts from wall
to wall. Most of
this has been
donated by pri-
vate citizens.
Rooms are
designated for
bathing, vaccina-
tion, medical
care and storage
of all types of
rescued animals,
which range
from dogs and
cats to more
unusual pets.
"We've had
one goat and
chickens Crisp
said.
Flood victims

The rescue
teams go by boat

to get other ani-

The animals arc stored in cages
of carriers until they reach the shel-
ter.
"Once they come through here,
they go through an ID process
Crisp said.
Polaroids of the animals are
taken, and they are tagged and col-
lared. The identification process
begins, and animals are claimed by
their owners.
"We've already had 126
reclaims ()risp said.
Unclaimed animals, or pets
belonging ro people who cannot
care for them, will go to foster
homes and may be put up for adopj
tion through the Humane Society.

Coordinator Valerie DeMesa
Bruemmer, who lives in St. Louis,
was preparing for a rescue mission
in a subdivision near the power
plant, which was formerly an off-

Rescue volunteers wore camou-
flaged rubber overalls and rubber
boots for safety in the flood water as
they loaded a truck with dog food,

truck also carried two boats.
Volunteers will be needed at the
FARS shelter until Friday, when it
will then move to the Humane
Society. Animals will be distributed
from there.

Music adds matter to the mind
Mozart may
improve learning
It K I v I- K 11. �. �. I. r. K
I I I WWII I l(
Music educators are debating if the
"Moart Effect" is factual or an
exaggeration.
The term "Mozart Effect
coined by Alfred Tomatis, refers to
the theory that students who listen
to music by the composer Mozart
have a better chance of excelling in
academics.
This theory came from the
research findings of Dr. Francis
Rancher and Dr. Gordon I Shaw
from the University of California at
Irvine. Rancher and Shaw's experi-
ments in neiiroscience and music
proposed a possible relationship
between classical music anil
increased learning ability.
Some music educators argue
that the findings anil research arc-
too controlled to be trustworthy.
"The studies that spawned the
"Mozart Effect" and the ways that
they were treated have distorted
the way that classical music has
been looked at said Richard (luff,
founder and director of the Suzuki
Music Academy. "It has prcttv
much been discredited by the flim-
sv studies
Music Education is, however,
looked on as a positive influence on
learning ability.

Celebration was
tasteless but justified

L
After time exflljpd in Saturday's
27-23 win ovcrtjMiami, throngs of
Pirate fans stormed the field at
N.C. State's Carter-Finley
Stadium. They flocked to the goal
posts and tore them down in eele-
biation of ECU'S biggest win since
19.
I sat in the press box and
watched the gtbl posts fall, absorb-
ing the irony vMjth all of the other
sportswritcrs r attendance. We
had to be at the field house for the
post-game press conference and
the only elevator available was full.
So some other writers and I struck
out to find stairs. The stairs we
found dumped us out on the top of
the upper deck. So I filed down the
stands, surrounded by older Pirate
fans, while the euphoric chaos
played out on the field below. It
was at that moment that I became
ashamed to be an KCL fan.
1 was not ashamed of the unfor-
tunate, albeit understandable emo-
tion displayed on the field; I was
ashamed of the remarks and excla-
mations I heard from the Pirate
fans around me in the stands. Men
and women shouted obscenities at
the fans on the field. One woman
standing next to me even said to
her young child, "No honey, the
police can't just go out there and
start beating up the students,
though I wislAWiey would
Ma'am dt you remember
Colorado Statewhere after CSV

Once at the press conference,
many members of the media sat
and blasted the KCl' student body
for their behavior on the field.
"They really showed their asses
today said one television reporter.
In the days following the game.
LCL's students were bashed in
both the GrceriVillc ;md Raleigh
media for tearing up the field of
the team that helped them out.
In the late 'KOs, our rivalry with
State was scrapped after rowdy
KCl I fans tore down Carter-finley
Stadium's goal posts after an KCL
win in Raleigh. Thus given our his-
tory, tearing down State's goal posts
was not the brightest thing we
could have done.
However, to anyone who
bashed the KCL student body for
this. I ask you: If you had just lost
everything due to a flood and your
school had just beat a top 10 team,
do you think you could just go
home? That is if you had a home to
go to.
What happened on the field
after the game Saturday was a
proper venting of emotions. It is
unfortunate that it happened in a
place where we were guests.
However, given all of the crap
KCL students have had to deal
with, it was an understandable
release of frustration.
When State takes the field for
their next home game, they will
have new goal posts, probably paid
for by KCL. There will be no
reminders of Saturday's celebra-
tion. I lowever, flood water will still
be in apartments and reminders of
floyd will be everywhere in east-
ern North Carolina well into the
future.
'fearing down the goal posts was
not a classy thing to do. Some
might say it was tasteless, and they
may be right. Hut for anybody to
say anything about Saturday, they
must understand where the stu-
dents were coming from; then they
will see that whatever damage we
caused them was not without justi-
fication. It was the right thing to
do, even if it was the wrong place

this summer, was dam-
aged during Hurricane

action is taken to curl) the behavior
by players, and fans that tainted the
Americans' comeback victory in
Urookline, Mass.
"A lot of players will not be
bothered competing in American
again said James in remarks pub-
lished widely:in liiesday's British
newspapers. "Certainly that is the
case with me. It's not something I
would look forward to. We don't
need to be treated like this
James' wife. Jane, said a young
fan spat at her Sunday on the final
day of the three-day competition at
The Country Club.
"It was just awful she said.
"There were lots of incidents of
people telling us to go home
Mark James said the incidents
left a "bitter taste" and called for an
alcohol ban at major golf events,
including the next Ryder Cup in
2001 at the Belfry in England. That
idea was backed bv Colin
Montgomerie, the target of much
of the heckling.
"I learned over the weekend
that Miclielon beer is to be the
next official drink at the next
Ryder Cup Montgomerie said in
a column in liiesday's Daily
'lelegraph. "To me, that does not
make sense. They should be think-
ing in terms of orange juice
'I'he F.uropcan team and British
media kepi up their scathing criti-
cism of the celebrations on the 17th
green Sunday by American players,
wives and caddies after Justin
Leonard made a 45-foot putt that
eventually decided the outcome.
The wild scenes came as
Europe's Jose Maria Olaabal still
had a chance to keep Europe's
chances alive with his own long
putt. I le eventually missed.
U.S. captain BenCrenshaw later
apologized, but Montgomerie said
it was too late. "No amount of apol-
ogy can make amends for what
they did Montgomerie said.
James said the incidents at the
17th green "pale in comparison" to
the behavior of fans toward the
Furopean players.
"If I had been playing myself, I
might have lost my temper com-
pletely James said. "Cheering
when you miss putts or hit into
bunkers is one thing. Hut personal
abuse is something different. We
are going to get into a situation
where fights will break out if we
don't stop this thing now
Montgomerie said his 70-year-
old father, who had traveled from
Scotland for the event, left the
course Sunday because of the mer-
ciless heckling of his son.
"I cannot tell you the number of
occasions I had to back off a shot
because of fans shouting during his
backswing, Montgomerie said.
"Personal attacks should never
happen and it's not just me on the
receiving end of them nowadays.
Most of the Furopcans had a taste
of the treatment over the week-
end

"The behavior of the American
team, and not just on the 17th
green, might have been juvenile,
but it certainly wasn't surprising
wrote Daily Telegraph columnist
Martin Johnson. "This is a country
which is so insular that most
Americans still believe that the
Second World War was won by
John Wayne
Some columnists took a more
moderate approach.
"I found myself feeling faintly
jealous of America's capacity for

shoulders a lot. They really care.
They want to win. They hate to
lose. And th's carries them leyond

the American golfers.

Goalposts

have not yet been tallied for the
cost of repairs for the goal post, but
he expects it to carry a price tag of
about $6,000.
VanSant, while happy with the
victory, said that fans should have
conducted themselves in a more
respective manner.
"The game had a very distinctive
feeling Van.Sant said. "A large
group of fans booed the actions,
while the rest, a small portion, were
tearing the goal posts down
VanSant, along with many others,
found much of the the game to be
ironic not only in that ECU was
playing the Hurricanes, but that
banners thanking N.C. State for
allowing the game to l)e played at
their stadium decorated the stands.
Due to this incident Pirate fans
should look forward the Nov. 20 sea-
son finale matA-up against the
Wolfpack at Dowdy-Ficklen stadj-
urn. "2S
Wolfpack fans have already
begun gearing up for a chance to
pay back the Pirates. This incident
should be just what was needed to
take this already heated rivalry to
yet a higher level.
N.C. State junior Chip Morgan
is among one (f the many state fans
who have already begun making
predictions for the game.
"State fans afth't mad about the
goal post, but we'll remember it
later on this year. Just remember we
play you (BCD), at your stadium
next. So be prepared Morgan said.

THE JUGGLERS
ECU commuter students are master jugglers. They handle class schedules, work
schedules and transportation plans with ease. Toss in obligations to family and
friends and commuters don't even break a sweat. But how can they master the skill
of adding campus involvement to the mix?
Successful students who become highly sought after employees intertwine academ-
ic studies with other campus experiences. Finding one's "niche" in campus life is
key to personal growth and allows one to get the most out of the college experi-
ence.
Commuters who have found their "niche" while
juggling life's other responsibilities share this
advice.
Get more involved in your academic depart-
ment. Meet faculty. Organize study groups.
Build a support network of fellow students, facul-
ty and staff.
Find an on-campus job.
Join a student organization.
Develop a new interest by attending perfor-
mance art programs, musical recitals or theatre
productions.
Take care of yourself. Meet with staff in
Student Recreation Services, Health Promotion,
Campus Dining Services or Student Health
Services.
Take initiative. Don't assume that your busy
schedule will keep you from being involved.
Meet with others to discuss your special circum-
stances and ways you can contribute.
Volunteer between classes.
Be a Pirate fan. Pick an ECU team to support and attend games, meets and
matches when you can. Don't forget to wear your purple and gold.
Can commuters juggle one more thing, you may ask? Maybe, maybe not. But
when they've already learned to toss around three flaming bowling pins, what's one
more? Especially when it might put them in the center ring.
If you are a commuter looking for a way to get involved in campus life, call Adult
and Commuter Student Services at 6881 or Student Leadership Programs at 4796.
As campus life runs along each day, photographers will be
out and about to capture us, the students, at our best If
you can identify yourself in any of our pictures, present
yourself to MSC 109 (Student Leadership) and point Vyou"
out to the staff1 there. Rewards will be on hand for your
efforts, so keep a close eye on these pictures!
ECU SPELLS
RELIEF
The Division of Student Life would like to thank all the volunteers who have
assisted with flood relief. Your efforts have greatly assisted the division and
numerous students, faculty and staff members as they rebuild after the storm.
In addition we would like to recognize the strength and courage of our ECU
students. Despite the adverse conditions, long lines, and complicated applica-
tions, ECU students have remained patient, respectful and positive during the
relief efforts. Your understanding, good humor, and positive attitude will help
the ECU family to overcome Floyd's impact and distinguish you among your
peers. You are the reason for our Pirate Pride!
Finally, we would like to remind all those affected by the flood that relief is
available at Todd Dining Hall. Services available include counseling, "health
information, legal counseling, financial assistance, textbooks on loan, ECU One
Card replacement, and a list of available housing options. The Flood Relief
Resource Center is open daily from 8:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.

Dear Diary
Dear Diary,
WH' I still miss home. I thought this feeling was supposed to go away after the first day.
Maybe I'm difFerentmaybe I'm weird. I don't like this place, I haven't met all these new
friends that my parents said I would and I hate eating alone in the cafeteria. I miss my par-
ents, my life back home, and yeseven my little brother. I want to go home. I want to go
home so bad sometimes that I can't concentrate on homework at night. I'm alone. I can't
even sleepevery time I close my eyes I see home. I don't know what to do
Dear Diary,
My RA came up to me today and asked me how I was feeling. She recommended I go talk
to the people at the Counseling Center. She was really nice about the whole thing - she did
not make me feel like I was weird.
Dear Diary,
I went to the Center for Counseling and Student Development and they helped me
work through my troubles. They suggested that I might want to check out the
Recreational Center, the Student Leadership office, and get involved on campus. I made
some friends today. I feel great!
TIPS FOR
TENANTS
� Always have a written lease with your landlord.
� If you aren't familiar with leases have someone else besides the land-
lord review it with you. SGAp rovides a free service to all ECU students
where you can meet with an attorney.
� Complete a check list about the condition of your property as soon as possible. Do it now if
you haven't already. This will help you if you have concerns later about your security deposit.
� You should receive your security deposit within 30 days after your lease ends. If you do not
receive the entire amount you can request written notification from the landlord as to why you
were charged. Typically, deposits are kept if the damages exceed normal wear and rear.
� Keep your landlord's or property manager's phone number handy.
� To receive a copy of "A Place of Your Own: A Guide to Off-Campus Living" call Adult and
Commuter Student Services at 328-6881.
