ECU beats NCSU
with score of 26-3

corelines across the
country flashed the re
suits of Saturday's
ECU beat N.C. State, 26-
The score alone did not tell
of the full effect of the Pirates'
win. The final tally did not com-
pletely show what the game
meant to the team, the coac'h
and the school.
The fact that the Pirates were
able to host the 'Pack was a tes-
tament to years of hard work.
"There have been hundreds
and hundreds of people over the
years that have pushed this thing
forward said Head Coach Steve
Logan. "Today, in that we did
indeed have them come here to
play a football game, and it was
a real classy event, I think. I think
it was 'mission accomplished so
to speak, for those men and all
of those people that put a lot of
work into it. I was very, very
privileged to be a part of it
N.C. State had never played
the Pirates in Greenville prior to
Saturday's contest. All but two of
the teams previous 21 meetings
had been held in Raleigh's
Carter-Finley Stadium.
"They found out what it
meant to come to a stadium that
we've been doing for 21 years
Logan said. "We've been doing
that, and it's tough, and our fans
deserve a lot of credit
50,092 fan packed the stands
of Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium. The
crowd broke the stadium atten-
dance record set in September,
when the Pirates hosted Duke.
"It was great. Coming out

there and seeing the whole sta-
dium packed, it felt great said
quarterback David Garrard. "I
think it kind of got to them a
little bit because they couldn't
hear as well
The win was Logan's 51st as
head coach of the Pirates, and
this makes him the all-time
winningest coach in ECU foot-
ball history. Logan passes
Clarence Stasavich who won 50
games as head coach from 1962
to 1969.
"Going into the game, we
were talking about it all week
Garrard said. "Getting this vic-
tory for Coach Logan because he
deserved it. We thought he de-
served it. We went out today and
executed; we finally got this vic-
tory for him
For the Pirate seniors who
were on the team when the
Wolfpack beat ECU in 1997, the
win had added significance.
"I had a picture up on my
locker from the day that we got
beat two years ago said line-
backer, Jeff Kerr. "I had a big pic-
ture of N.C. State tearing down
the goalposts. I didn't have that
picture up there for me, 1 had it
up there for the rest of the team.
Because I was there, I've seen it.
It's been ingrained in my mind.
The only way that it can be
erased is if we win today, and our
fans are tearing down those goal
Given the rivalry between the
two schools, the win will be cher-
ished by the seniors.
"You know how the big ri-
valry is between ECU and N.C.
State. I'm going to be very proud
to say that I was part of East Caro-
lina and we beat those guys said
senior Kwabena Green.

SGA approves increase in student activity fees
Cost raised by
less than five percent
Terra Steinbeiser
The SGA held its annual
meeting to discuss recommenda-
tions for increasing student fees
for the 2000-01 school year Mon-
day evening.
During this meeting, the SGA
legislature listened to and ques-
tioned the requests of different
university operations to deter-
mine their projected financial
needs for the next school year.
After each department and op-
eration had made its presenta-
tion, and once the legislature felt
it had enough information to
make a decision, the discussion
and recommendation process
within SGA began.
The issue which sparked the
most heated debate concerned
the requested $15 increase for
the athletic department. Barry
Brickman, the athletic business
manager, spoke for the depart-
ment in place of Athletic Direc-
tor Mike Hamrick, who was un-
able to attend the meeting. Many
representatives expressed reser-
vations about approving such an
increase because they believe the
department is not doing its best
to accommodate all students.
Several, such as Ted Howard
of the rules and judicial commit-
tee, used the unavailability of
student tickets for this past
Saturday's football game against
NCSU as an example of this. Still,
other members of the legislature
tried to emphasize that much of
the additional money will be
used to pay the join-up fee for
Conference USA, which many
feel is the first step towards real
recognition for ECU. The SGA
then recommended that the ath-
letic department receive a10 in-
After continued debate and
compromise, SGA members

creasing student fees. SGA Trea-
surer Overton Harper reminded
members of the legislature to take
their voting seriously.
"What is suggested by SGA is
usually done he said.
These recommendations will
be taken into consideration by
the Board of Trustees, who will
vote on the increase in Decem-
ber. In turn, the recommenda-
tions of the BOT will be reviewed
and considered by the Board of-1
Governors of the UNC System to
determine the final and definite
increase of student fees.
Typically, student fees are
raised no more than five percent
from the amount of the previous
year. If the SGA's recommenda-
tions are approved, the fee in-
crease for the 2000-01 school
year will be less than five percent.

It is a time of thanks, and
volunteers are spreading the
spirit of Thanksgiving by par-
ticipating in various programs.
Last Thursday at the
Greenville Food Bank, local
companies donated pallets of
NC-grown sweet potatoes and
turkeys for families still strug-
gling with the aftermath of
Floyd. The donations will be
distributed to 80 agencies in 10
eastern NC counties.
According tojudy Baker, di-

Strength and Conditioning
Athletic Building breaks ground
New complex to
unite coliseum, stadium
Angela Harne
Another step toward enhancing ECU student ath-
letics was taken Saturday in the groundbreaking of the
multi-million dollar Strength and Conditioning Ath-
letic Building.
The ceremony began with opening words from
Chancellor Richard Eakin and a presentation of plaques
to special university friends.
"We had a vision and now it has come true Eakin
said. "And in a couple of years we will be able to enjoy
the athletic building
Eakin presented a plaque to N.C. Senator Ed War-
ren with words of thanks.
"Ed is dear friend Eakin said. "He has been very
helpful with our new strength and conditioning vision.
He was able to get us a $2 million grant
Warren received a plaque engraved 'In Apprecia-
tion for Securing $2 million for Strength and Condi-
tioning Building
Eakin thanked Pete Murphrey and Walter Williams,
both Pirate Club members, for their outstanding vol-
unteer work and presented them each with a plaque.
"Pete and Walter worked very hard to raise private
funding Eakin said. "Their 'Kickoff to Victory' cam-
paign helped raise money for our new building. I thank
them for their outstanding volunteer leadership and
hard work
Murphrey and Williams also expressed their grati-
"I feel good about the changes to campus
Murphrey said. "We needed advancement we had a
dream and it became a reality. The people made it hap-
pen the loyal supporters.
There used to be a day when people would say, 'ECU
who?' Those days are gone because of the people. It's
my pleasure, gain and reward to be a part of the great
ECU family
"I think we've always gotten more for our buck com-
pared to our competition Williams said. "It is time
for our alums to get on the boat we are becoming
the best. I am proud to be a part of this superb com-
"Now let's go beat State he said.
Director of Athletics Mike Hamrick, expressed
thanks to Warren by presenting him with an official
game ball.
"We are celebrating a victory Hamrick said. "We've
had great leaders and volunteers who have made this
happen it's a major achievement for ECU.
"This is a big day for ECU State has come to play
on our home turf for the first time. No matter the out-
come, Sen. Ed Warren had been a key player
According to Hamrick, the new building, also
known as the Pirate Club Multi-Purpose Building, will
will take up 52,600 square feet between Minges Coli-
seum and Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium.
"It will connect the stadium and Minges from the
end zone Hamrick said. "It will join basketball and
football together as one
Hamrick also said the construction will cost the
$10,700,000, all of which will be paid by Pirate Club
members. The lower level will contain 22 square feet
for a strength area. The upper level will hold a banquet
multi-purpose room which will hold 500 guests, a re-
cruiting academic room and a student athletic room.
The strength and conditioning building is planned
to be opened by 2001.
Among those who participated in the
groundbreaking were: Chancellor Eakin, Sen. Warren,
Hamrick, Williams, Murphrey, Chair of the Board of
Trustees Phil Dickson, Vice Chair of the Board of Trust-
ees Charles Franklin, Pirate Club member Diane
Murphrey, Executive Director of AthleticsPirate Club
Dennis Young, Director of Planning Facilities Bruce Flye
and construction ownerarchitect Lee Nichols.

Residence halls are also good
sources of volunteer help during
Thanksgiving and the holiday sea-

Housing Services affirmed that the
residence halls participate in vari-
ous community outreach programs.
"Each residence hall decides
what they want to do Anti said,
"whether it be donating clothes,
toys or non-perishable foods to the
needy. Supplies are usually collected
through the holiday season

According to Heather Zophy, a
health educator, ECU falls in with
the national trend in terms of the
reported STD and HIV infection
rates. About one person in SOO is
infected with the HIV virus, while
one in four college students have
contracted some other kind of STD.
"You have to remember when
looking at the HIV rates that the
numbers only represent a fraction
of the actual number of cases �
probably only 20 percent of the true
infection rate said Barry Elmore,
outreach coordinator for PiCASO.
"A lot of people don't know they've
contracted the virus, so it goes un-
Elmore stressed the importance
of being tested regularly for HI V and
AIDS for those who are sexually ac-
"Homosexuals are more likely to
go and be tested than heterosexu-
als for some reason, although we're
now seeing more new cases with
heterosexuals he said.
Being diagnosed with any STD
can be an upsetting and frighten-
ing ordeal. While ECU does not of-
fer any counseling or support
groups for those who suffer from
HIV or other STD infections, stu-
dents can go to PiCASO for these
"We work so closely with
PiCASO that we refer students to
them if they need that type of sup-

UHS receives new life-saying device
da Vinci project
reduces recovery time
Carolyn Herold
The Heart Center of Univer-
sity Health Systems has recently
bought a cutting-edge, computer-
assisted surgical system called "da
Vinci" for $1 million from the
California-based Intuitive Surgi-
cal. This system is predicted to
change the way heart surgeries
are done and shorten patients'
recovery period.
"We'll be able to perform op-
erations with this surgical device
that have never been imagined
previously said Dr. Randolph
Chitwood, director of the UHS
Heart Center.
The da Vinci system uses
three robotic arms that are in-
serted into a patient's chest
through small, pencil eraser-sized
incisions. One arm holds a tiny
camera with multiple lenses. It
projects a three-dimensional
view of the heart to the surgeon.
The other two arms hold pencil-
sized instruments in "wrists" de-
signed for free movement in the
Specialized computer equip-
ment transfers the surgeon's ex-
act hand movements, made from
the surgeon's master control con-
sole on joysticks, to precise move-
ments of the surgical instruments
inside the chest.
The School of Medicine and
the teaching hospital will be one
of two national testing sites for
the new system, Ohio State's
medical center being the other.
"The visualization of the sur-
gical area is tremendous said Dr.
Robert Michler, chief of
cardiothoracic surgery at OSU's
university medical center. "The
hand controls are also very pre-
cise with every movement being
exactly replicated by the robotic
The da Vinci system is already
in use in European hospitals spe-
cializing in minimally invasive
surgery. There have been about
100 cardiac surgeries, and ISO
general surgeries done with the
device. ECU will begin running
laboratory trials after installa-
tion, which is awaiting final FDA
ECU proposes its first clinical
study in early 2000 on inside of.
the heart operations. Chitwood
plans to do the first intracardtac
surgery in the US in January.
While in Leipzig in February,
Chitwood was the first American
to perform a mitral valve repair
with this new system.
"The da Vinci computer as-
sisted surgery device will allow
us to now work inside the heart
as if the surgeon is deep inside
the chest cavity Chitwood said.
"This robotic device is a begin-
ning of a new era in surgery, and
will be applied to many differ-
ent areas. We believe that this is
the pathway to a truly endo-
scopic coronary artery bypass
and heart valve surgery
The first surgery with the da
Vinci system was done on Sept.
2, by Ohio State's Michler. Chris
Bolles, a 48-year-old science
teacher from Columbus, Ohio
had a bypass surgery done.
"This is the way surgery will
be done in the next century
Bolles said. "I just kind of felt
it was good for me and good
in general to contribute to that
"The entire operation went
well from start to finish Michler
said. "The robotic system al-
lowed us to operate with truly
amazing ease and precision. I see
this technology as a break-
through for medicine in that it
will allow surgeons to perform
operations using incisions in the
chest wall that are much smaller
than those that are normally re-
The da Vinci system will
greatly reduce the recovery time
of heart surgery.
With more invasive methods,
there is a several week recovery
time. With this new system, pa-
tients complete the recovery pro-

in addition to students who are visiting from Finland
and Sweden. The meeting informed interested students
of ways they can travel abroad while still receiving a
college education.
"It was an opportunity to share information about
our Student Exchange program here at ECU said Linda
McGowan, overseas opportunity coordinator for the
International House.
There are currently seven students at ECU from Fin-
land and Sweden. Psychology professor Beverly Hartu

Feasting hoiiday
established without Pilgrims
Susan Wright
Thanksgiving is a time for eating
turkey, ham, pies, candied sweet
potatoes, cranberry sauce, about
anything else that can fit on a table and giving
thanks that there are all these wonderful foods.
Family, football and food are the main themes
of this holiday, but originally, there were none
of the familiar pilgrims that decorate walls and
tables today.
The first Thanksgiving is now thought to be
that fateful day in 1621 after the Pilgrims had
survived their first year in the New World.
According to Plymouth-on-line, "The first na-
tional Thanksgiving was declared in 1777 by the
Continental Congress and others were declared
from time to time until 1815. The holiday then
reverted to being a regional observance until
1863, when two national days of Thanksgiving
were declared, one celebrating the victory at
Gettysburg on Aug. 6, and the other the first of
our last-Thursday-in-November annual Thanks-
It was more than 150 years between the time
that the Pilgrims celebrated their first year of sur-
viving until Thanksgiving was declared a holi-
day. Even after 150 years, the Pilgrims were not
associated with this holiday.
The first time that Thanksgiving was symboli-
cally associated with the Pilgrims was in 1841 and
it was Alexander Young who associated the holi-
day with the 1621 Pilgrim dinner. Up until that
time, it was a day to eat with family and enjoy
lots and lots of turkey.
Some of the food that is eaten on Thanksgiv-
ing is very similar throughout the nation. Tur-
key, mashed potatoes, stuffing and gravy are
served at almost every table, but there are also
regional specialities.
In the South, sweet potato souffle and collard
greens often grace the table as well. In Baltimore,
sauerkraut is served at Thanksgiving. Traditionally
Northern foods are Mincemeat pie and Rhubarb pie.
Many people have food favorites that their fam-
i ily has served every single year and if these
' are missing, their holi-
day would be con-
sidered incom-
"We always
have turkey,
yams, rolls, gravy
and pig pickin'

Menichelli, senior.

flavored with
mandarin or-
anges, pine-
apples and cov-
ered in Cool
, Whip.
"My favor-
' ite food is tur-
key and gravy
Not every-
body has the
same favorites.
Serraut, a senior,
will not eat any-
thing except for
ham and biscuits
on Thanksgiving. In
the future when she is
preparing dinner for her
family however, she will
make the full spread with
mashed potatoes, turkey, and
everything else traditional, not omitting ham and
biscuits, for her family.
Sarika Daftuar, freshman, enjoys the traditional
turkey and mashed potatoes. Daftuar also enjoys a
family speciality on Thanksgiving.
"I love pineapple pie Daftuar said.
Although all three women have different fa-
vorite foods, they all agree that Thanksgiving is a
time for celebrating with family and friends. Both
Daftuar and Menichelli
wanted to have a bigger
family there for the
holidays, and the ac-
tivities of the day re-
volved around eat-
ing and clean up.
Another thing
that the three
women had In
common was the
role of the women
in the house. Re-
gardless of which
generation of the
family typically did
the cooking, it was al-
ways the women who
cook and clean up after-
"On Thanksgiving, we
sleep while momma cooks,

cally begin dinner at 1
p.m and we talk and remi-

begin dividing up the left-
In Serraut's family, the
children play, the men sit
in the living room and
watch football, Ole Miss

every year on Thanksgiving
day, and the women clean up
all the dishes.
"Sometimes I'm nice, and I
help dry Serraut said.
There is a set Thanksgiving ritual in most fami-
lies as well as a list of foods that will be on the
table every year. Food and family have always
been part of the holiday, even before the pilgrims
were considered part of this feasting day.

Some RAs stay
for the holidays
Academic year
halls stay secure
Kenton Bell
Ryan Kennemur
Thanksgiving has finally arrived, and many students
are leaving on a mission to seek out turkey, dressing
and cranberry sauce that's shaped like a can, while a
select few have opted to stay behind.
Though most are closing, there are academic year
residence halls which will remain open for the dura-
tion of the holiday break. Since some students will be
staying, so must a small number of residence advisers.
"Basically, we need one RA per dormitory for vari-
ous reasons said Manny Amaro, director of Univer-
sity Housing. "The residence halls need to be checked
to make sure everything is secure and all the locks are
locked; then the RAs get to go on with business as usual
in their own respective dorms. The only real difference
that occurs for the RAs that are staying is that they
don't have to do the programming that is usually war-
ranted when the dorms are full
Amanda Wiznaik, a returning Belk RA who stayed
during Thanksgiving last year, has mixed emotions re-
garding the overtime work.
"The worst part was having to stay indoors at all
times because I was always on call and on duty
Wiznaik said. "And also, most everyone went home or
somewhere for the holiday, and it was pretty boring

Anna Rounaja, also from Finland, will be spending
two semesters at ECU as well. She has already spent a
year studying in Paris, France. The education system
here is quite different, according to Rounaja.
"In Finland, you have to pass a test to be able to
attend a university Rounaja said. "Once you pass that
test, the government pays for your education and even
gives you so much money per month to live on

just sitting around. But on the other hand, it was worth
it because we were compensated and I had no reason
to go home, anyway
Students receive special benefits when they are
hired as an RA to compensate for the limitations on
their time at home with their family and friends.
"To begin with, our RAs are given a free single room,
a meal plan with nine meals a week and a salary of
$400 said Carolus Brown, assistant director of Hous-
ing Services. "Then, if they opt to stay with us during
the holiday they are paid an extra amount, depend-
ing on the length of the holiday andor how long they
remain on duty
According to former Jones RAs, the money is viewed
as money to pay for the meals that they have to pur-
chase because they cannot leave the dorms while they
are on duty. Usually, at least one RA in an academic
year hall is willing to stay.
"Out of the 120 RAs that we have on campus, only
one is required to stay in each residence hall Brown
said. "In most cases, there's someone in each dorm who
either isn't going home to begin with or wishes to earn
more money
Whatever the reason for staying may be, the RAs'
dedication is appreciated by the students.

While athletes certainly deserve
good facilities and athletics are an
' integral part of this university, one
just needs to consider the State-
Ed! ticket fiasco to wonder if the
money will be spent to all students'
benefit. For that reason, we agree
with the SGA that the athletic
department deserves a10
increase, and not the proposed $15.
During every semester vacation, all students receive their tuition bill.
While ECU is one of the least expensive schools in the state, these bills can
add up. And, considering the expenses that all students have (books, clothes
and the occasional movie), it does not come cheap.
So, when it comes time for the Student Government Association to
decide if our student fees should be increased, every student should be
paying close attention. Last night, our SGA heard from many departments
and organizations why each should be given more money for the next
year. Student Health, CIS, ECU Transit and the athletics department all
vied for budget increases.
We believe that student fee increases are inevitable. Usually, there is a
five percent increase every year, and if the Board of Trustees and the UNC
Board of Governors follow through on our SGA's recommendations, the
2000-2001 increase should be slightly below the standard increase.
So, should our student fees be raised? The answer is yes, if there is a
need. Everyone can agree that Student Health Services certainly deserves
the money to update its facilities and keep our fellow students healthy.
However, while athletes certainly deserve good facilities and athletics
are an integral part of this university, one just needs to consider the State-
ECU ticket fiasco to wonder if the money will be spent to all students'
benefit. For that reason, we agree with the SGA that the athletic depart-
ment deserves a S10 increase, and not the proposed S15. Our SGA dis-
cussed and debated each proposed increased. It is admirable that our
SGA spent the time to consider every students' needs and how higher
student fees might affect them.
So, while we all grumble and complain about having to pay that tu-
ition bill, as long as that money is going to improve ECU and help its
faculty, staff and students, we'll go ahead and sign that check.
Chancellor extends thanks to community, nation
Greek population seen as elitists, racists
Chris Sachs
This article is the second in an on-going series about
society's unfair generalizations about Greek organiza-
People say that fraternities are elitists and bigots.
Now, I talked to most of the presidents of the Greek
fraternities, sororities and many other campus groups,
and I found out that of the thousands of people who
attended all the rush parties for the old, established
Greek houses, just a few were African-American. And I
don't think any white guys showed up to the tradi-
tional African-American fraternity rush parties. That is
not racism, that is just personal choice.
People join clubs where they feel the most com-
fortable. No one is at fault; it is what it is. Fraternities
don't make people racist. Once again, if they are racist,
they were before they joined. There are many ethnic
groups involved with fraternities and they are having
a blast. The numbers are small, yes, but remember: The
fraternities only choose from the rush party that shows
As far as elitism is concerned, most frat guys are as
broke as the rest of us, and many have to hold down
jobs to pay their dues. They are not full of rich brats
blowing daddy's money on the fraternity life, most have
to earn their money. When you see those guys and gals
washing cars for tips and selling baked goods and ugly
liquor lamps, they are not trying to buy a new whirl-
pool. That money goes to keep the frat running and
maybe throw a good party. Washing dead bugs off some
old lady's windshield does not sound like an elitist
lifestyle to me. What you call elitism, I call dedication.
And the dues would not be as expensive in the first
place if it were not for the idiots that show up to frat
parties already drunk and stoned, get into trouble and
then the fraternity gets blamed and sued.
People say that the Greek life is a clique and that
you lose your individuality. Well, from as far as I can
see everyone is in a clique. Even the losers who hang
around coffee shops 10 hours a day�the ones with
purple hair, pierced genitalia, shrimp forks shoved
through their noses, who read depressing poetry and
complain that life is boring and meaningless�are in a
clique. The jocks are in a clique. So are the SGA, the
Greenville Chess Club, the purple and gold dancers,
Everyone that is part of a group of people with simi-
lar interests could be considered a clique. Even the
people who say they are not in a clique and hate them,
are in a clique. You don't lose individuality by being
part of a group.
Many people just complain about frats and sorori-
ties because they had a bad experience with someone
in that frat or sorority. A girl once told me she hated a
particular frat because her ex-boyfriend (who is in that
particular frat) cheated on her. Now she hates that frat
and puts them down.
Now the frat gets a reputation of being unfaithful
womanizers. And I find that the majority of people that
complain about frats and sororities either didn't get
into the one they wanted and are upset, or did not try
to get in, say they hate them all, but go to their parties
anyway. Hypocrisy at its finest.
People say that frat guys are dumb. I found that the
average GPA of a fraternity house is about 2.4 to 2.7.
Now you have to remember that this is an average,
which means that there are those with GPA's above
those figures and some below, these GPA's are not that
far off from the school as a whole and when you take
into account that the GPA's from the people that left
the frat or were expelled from school are still used in
the figures. So when a few bad apples leave, it still spoils
the bunch.
The major contributor to the low GPA's are the
younger, more impressionable freshman and sopho-
mores that have discovered that college is harder than
high school, and the drinking is harder too. Studying
and drinking are both vital to a successful college ca-
reer, and it takes a little while to master the balance of
the two.
But remember no matter what individual members
may do: It's not the frats fault. People have self control
and stupid behavior lies within the person, not the

Pokemon isn't hurting our kids
Dear Editor,
I feel as if R. W. Hobbs, Jrs opinion article on
Pokemon was written in haste. I do agree that the prob-
lem with Pokemon, as with both Elmo and Furby, lies
with the parents. I think the parents are the ones act-
ing like addicts. They're shelling out the money for this
stuff at outrageous prices. Let the kids buy the toys with
their allowance, or let them earn it by doing chores or
getting good grades in school. As for the kids fighting
over or stealing Pokemon or other toys, that again goes
back to the parents. Apparently they haven't taught
their children about sharing or stealing, or given them
enough discipline.
As for Hobbs' comment on the trading cards help-
ing with math and decision skills, I don't know. But I
do know that it helps with memory retention, which
is definitely beneficial. I know kids who can spout off
the names of all 150 Pokemon, which Mr. Hobbs said
were "unpronounceable I say get these children off
Ritalin and on Pokemon!
What bothers me most about Hobbs' article is that
he wrote from the point of view of someone who has
never seen an entire Pokemon show or especially the
movie. He says that Pokemon has no message for
kids. That is so wrong, and if he had ever watched it,
he wouldn't have said that.
The Pokemon movie promotes teamwork through-
out the story, and the moral of the story is about diver-
sity and ending racism. He doesn't think thaf s a good
message? The show comes on daily, and it always has
an underlying theme. Yesterday it was on self-confi-
dence and sacrificing in order to help others. Is that so
My boyfriend is an elementary education major, and
just this week he used Pokemon to dissuade third grad-
ers from using drugs or alcohol. The kids loved it, and
so did his professor. I think Hobbs is being a little hard
on something that he knows so little about. Not to
mention the fact that the Japanese are the smartest
people in the world. Look it up. Pokemon hasn't hurt
those kids.

Gambling parallels life
Tearing down of goalposts just good, clean fun
Dear Editor,
Let me just start by saying yes, I was the guy on the
goalpost with the cellular phone. It was a spur of the
moment thing. I didn't know what to do once I got up
there so I thought I'd call my parents and let them
know where I was. But my purpose for writing this isn t
to extend my 15 seconds of fame, but rather to address
what will certainly be a debated topic for weeks to come.
Some people don't think it was right for the stu-
dents to rush the field and tear down the goalposts,
and I certainly heard my share of grumbles about those
"rowdy students" as I left the stadium. I understand
that no one is trying to prevent us from having school
spirit; they just want us to be responsible.
As one of those proud rowdy students, let me ask
those who booed us: Would you rather us be rioting
on Fifth Street and overturning cars? Would you rather
us be lighting fires and trashing the neighborhood? Of
course not. We could if we wanted to, but all we wanted
to do was run around on the field after we beat our
biggest rival. That's it. We weren't going to break any
windows, or beat up any deserving N. C. State fans. We
could have, but we're more mature than that.
It was fun, and that's all it comes down to. They
say we disgraced our school when we tore 'em down at
Carter-Finley. No doubt people will think we shamed
ourselves on Saturday, but those people need to remem-
ber when they were a little younger, and a little more
foolish and a little more adventurous. Most of all they
should be proud of our unity and just enjoy the mo-
ment. I did. After all, goalposts are replaceable, but
memories like mine of being "that guy with the phone"

Many people claim that gam-
bling is an evil practice that will ul-
timately result in doom. While
some people do develop a problem
(remember�admitting it is the first
step), most often gambling is ulti-
mately harmless. Nonetheless, gam-
bling and particularly playing cards
offers a great analogy to life.
When at the table, everyone
brings what they are willing to bet
and they cash it in for chips. Each
player decides what portion of their
chips they are willing to sacrifice.
Some players have a strategy, while
others just haphazardly throw what-
ever feels right on the table.
The dealer deals a random hand
of cards to everyone who places a
bet. Each player has to deal with the
hand that is dealt. Some fare well,
others crash and burn. Despite the
outcome, the game goes on.
Throughout the hands, there are
winners and losers, and the winners
and losers differ most often with
each hand. Sometimes, a player, for
no reason except dumb luck (which
is what it all essentially boils down
to), will rack up and win big. Some-
times the most "talented" player
strikes out over and over. As the
game wears on, decisions are made
with more urgency. Soon, players
decide whether to hold chips and
wait or to put it all on the table.
Players win and lose on all levels
and some break even, but in the
end, the house always wins.
In life, everyone decides how
much of themselves they are going
to offer and how much they are
going to make from what they are
given. If they avoid the table, or if
they don't buy chips, they aren't in
"the game
When making choices, some
people have intricate designed plans
and others take it day by day, but
since life throws out random hands,
the extent to which they plan may
not have a great impact on the out-
come. Of course, the more ac-
quainted they are with the game,
the better their chances for success
will be, but it doesn't absolutely
guarantee anything at all. Through-
out life they experience both suc-
cesses and failures, and it is hard to
predict when success and failure
occur. Some people just stumble
into a great path, and it doesn't
seem fair because others who de-
serve it never achieve their poten-
As life wears on, the urgency to
accomplish and surmount goals in-
creases. That is when evaluation of
what is important and what things
and people are worth takes place.
Some achieve everything in some
aspects, some achieve everything In
all aspects, and some even leave
achieving nothing. Regardless, in
the end, what is meant to happen
will, and they then realize that the
idea of being able to alter the hands
of fate is just an opiate for the

The United States won the World Cup on

Dolphins defense
picks off Pats
In the AFC East every win counts. The divi-
sion that is stacked with great teams has had
many great matchups. The Dolphins beat the
Patriots in one such game.
The Dolphins won with defense, picking off
five Drew Bledsoe passes and sacking him
five times to stay in a tie with Indianapolis atop
the AFC East at 8-2. The victory also opened
up ground on the Patriots (6-4) and the Bills
(7-4), who were upset by the New York Jets on
Miami gained just 229 yards against New
England and didn't have a first down for 17
minutes at the start.
Quarterback Damon Huard, who threw two
short touchdown passes to Oronde Gadsden,
left in the third quarter with a broken nose.
But the defense basically dominated by
setting up 13 points and stopping two late New
England threats.
Seattle earns first
win in K.C. since '90
The last time the Seahawks won in Kansas
City, all but eight of Seattle's current players
were still in college or high school.
Not since 1990, and only twice since 1979,
have the Seahawks left Arrowhead Stadium as
winners. But in this remarkable turnaround
year under Mike Holmgren, everything seems
to be changing for Seattle, which beat the
Chiefs 31-19 on Sunday.
"Look, you're not going to intimidate us any
more said quarterback Jon Kitna after the
victory that snapped the Seahawks' eight-
game losing streak at Arrowhead. "We're go-
ing to attack, We'rernot going to sit back and
let you attack us anymore .
Ricky Watters scored three touchdowns to
lead Seattle to its fifth consecutive win and
hand the Chiefs their third straight loss and
their first at home in more than a year.

Canard's three
touchdowns lead Pirates
Stephen Schramm
In the week leading up to Saturday's game with in-
state rival, N.C. State, much of the focus of the Pirate
defense was on stopping Wolfpack quarterback Jamie
"We've got to keep Jamie Barnette from running
up and down the field on us said Head Coach Steve
Logan at practice last week.
Saturday it was ECU quarterback David Garrard
whose mobility and elusiveness were on display in
ECU'S 23-6 win.
Garrard rushed for 101 yards and three touchdowns.
His first touchdown came with 10:30 left in the sec-
ond quarter, on a fourth-and-one on the 2-yard line.
His second came with 48 seconds left in the first half
from 14 yards out. His third came on a 46-yard scam-
per late in the fourth quarter that sealed the victory for
the Pirates.
"I was getting around the end there and LaMont
Chappell had a pretty good block on the corner for
me Garrard said. "1 kind of pulled it inside for me
and took it back outside again with a stiff-arm, and it
was just wide open from there on
N.C. State came into Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium Sat-
urday, playing for their post-season lives. At 6-5 the
Wolfpack needed a victory to become eligible for a bowl.
Early on It looked as If they might
have gotten It.
Jamie Barnette opened the scor-
ing with a 1-yard touchdown run
with 8:04 left in the first quarter.
The Kent Passlngham extra-point
attempt was blocked by Jeff Ken.
The block was the first of three
blocked kicks by the Pirates and the
first of two by Kerr.
The Pirates then drove down the
field. David Garrard ran into the end
zone, but the ball was Jarred loose
at the 1-yard line. Garrard recovered
the fumble, but was out-of-bounds.
The officials ruled it a touchback
and gave the Wolfpack the ball on
their 20-yard line.
"I was concentrating on getting
into the end zone so bad I stopped
thinking about the football, and the
guy kind of knocked it out on me
Garrard said. "I thought I was still
pretty much in bounds
"When David fumbled the ball
into the end zone, I thought it re-
ally put them in position emotion-
ally to come away and really make
it a tough football game Logan
While Garrard hurt the Wolfpack with his legs,
Barnette found success with his arm. Barnette threw
for 269 yards. However the" N.C. State passing attack
failed to create any points.
"We tried to tighten up and turn on the pressure in
the second half said linebacker Pernell Griffin. "I'm
so proud of the defense and how they stepped it up
and turned it up a notch

Senior leaders sup up
Jeff Kerr and the senior leaders on the team
gave the pregame pep talk. Ajob usually re-
served for coaches, the seniors felt they would
give the best pep talk.
�Before the game, I went out and the seniors
gave the pep talk Kerr said. "Usually the
coaches have the pep talk for this week, butrwl
this week. This week meant too much for usas�
senior group
Bar netted swan song
Saturday's game marked the final game in the
red and white for N.C. State quarterback, Jamie
Barnette. Barnette, a senior from Roxboro, threw
for 269 yards in his final collegiate game.
"At the end of the game, I walked up to him
and told him that he was a great player Ken-
said. "He's had a great career. I told him, he's got
nothing but respect from me
Kicking update
Kevin Miller dressed for Saturday's game,
though he did not play. Andrew Bayes and
Brantley Rivers handled the kicking duties while
Miller was still hobbled by a leg injury he suffered
against Tulane.
�Kevin Mjjler could have kicked today said
Head Coach Steve Logan. "If we held him out to-
day, then we would be sure to have him for the
bowl game
Team unity through hair styles
For Saturday's game, members of the Pirate
defense showed up with new hairdos. Defensive
linemen Devonne Claybrooks and Kwabena
Green had their hair dyed red, while Jeff Kerr
sported braids.
The whole defensive front line decided to do
something different this week Kerr said. "So as
part of a team unit, we wanted to do something
together and create togetherness. It wasn't to
draw attention to me. It wasn't for the other guys
to draw attention to themselves. It was to show
what kind of team unity we have on this defense
Blocking kicks
The Pirates blocked an extra point and two
field goal attempts Saturday.
"We saw that their kicker didn't get the baH :
up Logan said. "I knew that if we got a good
middle push, then we could block iL"
Jeff Kerr got two of the blocks, Norris
McCleary got the other.
"I got one underneath my underarm Kerr
said. "I've got a big red mark or a welt from one. I
got one on my hand. I dislocated my finger, but

Team to play

On the heels of ECU'S 23-6 win
over North Carolina State Univer-
sity, the Pirates accepted a bid to
play in the Mobile Alabama Bowl.
"I felt it this year said quarter-
back David Garrard. "I knew we
would have a great chance of get-
ting in and it came up
The game will be played Dec. 22
and the Pirates will face the second
choice team in the WAC.
"It's just such a perfect fit said
Head Coach Steve Logan. "Our play-
ers knew that, our coaches knew
that. It's a great fit for our fans to
just get in a car and get down Inter-
state 95 and have a great time. It's a
December 22nd game and 1 think
it's just a great time frame to hit it
The bowl will be the first
postseason play for the Pirates since
a trip to the Liberty Bowl in 1995.
"It feels great said senior
Kwabena Green. "I've never been to
a bowl, but I've heard about it from
other guys down the road. It's a tre-
mendous experience, we played a
great game and I'm just proud to be
a part of this team
For some members of the team
the trip will be a journey closer to
"For me, I'm loving this said
wide receiver, Keith Stokes, who
hails from Dothan, Ala. "I get to go
home again, hopefully this time
we'll come out with a victory when
we go to Alabama
The Alabama Bowl takes the sec-
ond choice from C-USA. The con-
ference champion, Southern Miss,
will go to the Liberty Bowl while the
third place team, Louisville, will
probably head to the Humanitarian
Bowl in Boise, Idaho.
ECU has played in Alabama
twice during the past two seasons.
The Pirates lost both of the games
in Birmingham. In 1998 they lost
23-22, and this year they lost 36-17
to UAB.

Swim teams compete in Nike Cup
Amy Hendrick sets
new record of 57.66
Susanne Milenkevich
ECU'S men's and women's
swim teams traveled to Chapel Hill
last weekend where they partici-
pated in the 14th annual Carolina
Invitational (Nike Cup).
"It is one of the most presti-
gious lnvitationals in the country

of 57.66. Hendrick's swim set a new
mark for ECU with the best finish
for a Lady Pirate in the history of
ECU'S competition in the Carolina
Sophomore Dana Fuller also
pulled in strong performances for
ECU finishing 24th in both the 500-
yard freestyle (5:09.43) and the 400-
yard individual medley (4:40.38).
"Amy and Dana are some of the
top swimmers in the CAA Kobe
said. "They are outstanding people
and they are truly fast
Hendrick and Fuller also com-
peted In the 200-yard Individual

THE CARD Post. Report 346.1. Heal
Inn. To reflect upon recent (111599)
statements about 'buddhism' in the
News & Observer's Faith section in re-
gard to 'capital punishmentthere is
need to address it's comparison of' 10
major concept' of Buddhism to the '10
commandments' of Christianity. There
are schools of Buddhism with no pre-
ceptscommandmentsthough the
teachings are based upon understand-
ing the Law of all laws the Law that
cannot be broke, the Law that cannot
be bentthe Law that enforces it-
self.the Law that judges the judg-
es the understanding of the Law that
enables one to change poison into
medicine, create Heaven out of Hell&
enables suffering to be across of com-
passion& ultimately mercy& to cre-
ate indestructible happiness in this life-
time & lifetimes to come. The com-
parison of 'precepts' 6 'command-
ments' that'one should not killleaves
a void of what one should do. That
mercy is ultimately manifested in heal-
ing is to recognize that the source of
the suffering as identified by many
Christians & Buddhists as evilis rec-
ognized in the Diamond Seed School
of Buddhism as the lack of knowledge
Etthe ability to create value with
knowledgeas represented in the
word Wisdom To see beyond the sur-
face of 'sin' to it's sourceis to under-
stand that at a 'crucial moment' one
will not 'obey' a law that one does not
understand. Insights to this under-
standing as found in Christ's last words
& echoed in Confusius saying "to know
& not actis to not knoware the
source of true forgiveness of others&
yourselves. And the Biblical precept
1 'despise the sin & not the sinner is
clarified via another Biblical pre-
ceptto even conceive of doing anoth-

into one's won life condition. The un-
'� derstanding that evolves is not 'who'

ance possesses& the challenge is
