Hope for a cure continues.
Yesterday was the twelfth an-
nual World AIDS Day. In honor
of the day, ECU, along with Pitt
County AIDS Service Organiza-
tion (PiCASO), ECU Student
Health Services, the Pitt County
Chapter of the American Red
Cross, Project Outreach and
Down East Pride held a candle-
light vigil last night.
The vigil began at 6 p.m. in
front of Joyner Library and was

Participants gathered near
the Joyner clock holding candles.
Barry Elmore, director of educa-

audit of
NCSU camp
Auditor alerted to
possible misuse of funds
Terra Steinbeiser
Following a tip from a hotline
call, State Auditor Ralph
Campbell began an investigation
of the misuse of state funds by
the Mitchell 4-H Camp run by
the Cooperative Extension Ser-
vice at NCSU.
The Mitchell 4-H Camp is lo-
cated on 32 acres near the town
of Swansboro and is associated
with NCSU through the North
Carolina Cooperative Extension
Service (NCCCES). The NCCCES
focuses on 20 major programs
statewide, with an emphasis on
agriculture, forestry and protec-
tion of the environment. One of
these such programs is the 4-H
(Heart, Head, Hands and Health)
Club, whose mission, according
to their webpage, is to aid youth
and adults in becoming compe-
tent members of society.
In April of this year, allega-
tions were made concerning the
employees at the camp. Some of
the allegations included that the
camp director used camp funds
to pay for personal expenses,
casned.camRcljecks.but failed to
deposit the money, that camp
employees performed personal
services for the director and were
reimbursed with camp funds and
that the camp administrative as-
sistant falsified her time records.
"Upon completion of our in-
vestigation, we identified
$17,467.99 in expenditures and
activities by former and current
camp employees to be question-
able in nature Campbell said.
The names of the camp direc-
tor, extension specialist, admin-
istrative assistant and other camp
employees have not been re-
leased for legal reasons, and
therefore were not able to be
reached for comment.
According to the state
auditor's report, it was found that
the former camp director used
campstate money to pay for per-
sonal auto repairs, gas, as well
as personal cellular and long dis-
tance services.
Also, the administrative assis-
tant falsified her time sheets by
putting her hours on her
husband's time sheets so as not
to risk losing her disability pay-
ments. The NCSU extension spe-
cialist was aware of this and ac-
tually aided the administrative
assistant in circumventing the
payroll process.
Campbell made recommen-
dations to NCSU Chancellor
Marye Anne Fox concerning the
recovery of lost funds.
In a letter to Campbell, Fox
assured him that the university
was taking such measures.
"NC State University has ini-
tiated appropriate action to ad-
dress this recommendation Fox
said. "Further conective actions
have been initiated to address the
handling of funds, documenta-
tion for expenditures and per-
sonal matters
The auditor's report is now
being reviewed by public offi-
cials, including Governor Jim
Hunt, Molly Broad, president of
the UNC System and members of
the Joint Legislative Commission
on Governmental Operations.

Society for Advancement Management (SAM) in-
vited Congressman Walter Jones to discuss issues con-
cerning the world and NC.
This past Tuesday at 3:30 p.m. in GCB 1400 Jones
shared his views and opinions on relevant issues deal-
ing with the world.
According to Wendy Morrill, member of SAM, this
is the second time Jones has come to speak to their

issues. Personally I want to know what congress is plan-

Jones was delighted to be at ECU.
"This is my second time here Jones said. "I am
delighted to talk to such an active group. I love to talk
to young college students. I believe all should be heard
and I am here to listen
Jones covered issues dealing with a balanced bud-
get, education, military, Medicare, social security and
welfare reform.
He claimed the nation is in debt.
"We are in debt and it needs to be reduced Jones
said. "I believe that we need to live within a balanced
budget. This is the first party since 1969 to achieve this
Jones believes that education is a state and local
"I am a State Rights Congressman Jones said.
"Therefore I believe that education issues should be
given to each individual state, giving the people the
rights within their state
Congressman Jones said that he has no military
background, but that he has served on the ARMS Ser-
vices for the past five years.
"I feel we are fortunate Jones said. "We have men
and women in uniform who are willing to fight for our
nation. We live in a very unsafe world. We have terror-
ists, cyberspace warfare we need a strong military.
By 2000 the main issue will be whether or not the US
should 'Police the World I don't think that it is neces-
sary, but I do believe that our NC bases are safe despite

"I think that our prime threat is China Jones said.
"They are the top supplier of technology advancement
which could destroy us. North Korea is also a threat
due to their unstable government along with Iraq and
Iran due to their chemical warfare. And then there is
always the threat of terrorists
Jones believes that the millennium needs to be fo-
cused on foreign policy and our tax system.
"We need to get more involved with other parts of
the world Jones said. "We need a simple and fair tax
system. I didn't go to Washington to become part of
the problem. I went to find solutions for tax problems.
Debate has begun of how we are going to change the
system for the people
Medicare, social security and welfare were also dis-
"I am very concerned about Medicare Jones said.
"I think that by 2007 it might be insolvent. Congress
needs to get working now and not later. We need Medi-
care in the future.
Talsb feel that we need an alternative program for
social security for those that are under 35. At. the mo-
ment Congress is in the process of discussing a new
retirement system. Welfare is another big issue.
"Over the past presidency welfare has dropped 60.
Child support is up 25 and we no longer support
addicts, alcoholics or prisoners with welfare. That alone
has saved tax payers $9.3 billion
Farmers and fishermen of NC are being protected.
"The NC republican and democratic parties are
working together as a team Jones said. "By February
money will be coming for our commercial fishermen
through direct grants. I feel our farmers also need di-
rect payments. I am definitely pushing for support of
our farmers and fishermen
Congressman Jones wants students to be aware.
"Please vote and be educated on candidates Jones
said. "We need to face our problems of today and start
finding solutions

�Opinion surveys allow students voice in education
Course evaluations
distributed this week
Maura Buck
Student surveys will be distributed this week in class-
rooms to evaluate the educational experience of stu-
dents at the university. These surveys consist of both a
imultiple-choice section and a short answer section that
Attempt to judge students' perceptions of their profes-
; The surveys are used for faculty self-development
;and administrative review, in addition to playing im-
portant roles in matters of promotion, tenure and sal-
ary decisions.
Debra Anderson, professor of foreign language and
literature, suggests that students take the time to com-
plete the survey.
"If for no other reason, students should complete
ithe survey to voice their opinions about an important
aspect of their university experience Anderson said.
Throughout the week, professors will be handing
pujt the optional surveys and then leave their classrooms
to create a non-threatening environment to encour-
age completion of the forms.
"It's much more appealing if you know that what
you are saying will not be counted against you, espe-
cially during finals said freshman Lisa Stoltenberg.
In some classes, the surveys will be distributed
Eugene Ryan, a philosophy professor, is distribut-
ing his survey forms online in two of his classes. He
feels that by using the online survey, "sloppiness" in
collection can be eliminated.
"The mechanics of the surveys using paper forms
leaves a lot to be desired Ryan said. "The data floats
around in sealed and unsealed envelopes, from one
hand to another, with no one supervising the process
until it finally comes to rest in the office that compiles
the data. It is frightening to think that such question-
able data would ever be used to make personal deci-
sions that would impact the whole professional life of
a faculty member
According to Moriah Hampton, a graduate assistant
professor in the English department, the questions
cover basic principles concerning the helpfulness of the
teacher, as well as the class structure, teaching style
and the selection of textbooks. She also feels the stu-
dent-teacher relationship should not be one-sided. She
believes that students should be able to critique their
learning experience.
However, Hampton stated that it would be more
useful to base the questions around her personal needs
rather than simply generalizing.
"If students don't like my choice of textbook, I need
to know specifically what about the textbook wasn't
useful, so I can order accordingly next semester Hamp-
ton said.
Some professors believe students do not take ad-
vantage of the free-response portion of the survey.
"Many students answer only the multiple-choice
answers, but the written-in ones are probably most
helpful said Charles Garrison, professor of sociology.
Although sophomore Darius Chisholm fills out both
sections of the evaluation, he feels that, in some ways,
it is a waste of time.
"They ask for your opinion and then as far as I can
see, they don't use it Chisholm said.
Freshman Brad Winston thinks it is a good idea to
"If the students are being honest, I think that if s a
great way to express their feelings he said. "If a cer-
tain professor is flunking three-fourths of a class, the

stead of going to a dean to talk about it said fresh-
man Katie Evans. "It's anonymous and the professors

SEATTLE (AP)�Stunned by vio-
lent street protests resulting in scores
of arrests, delegates to a 135-nation
trade gathering insisted they would
push ahead today with efforts to
launch a new round of talks. Presi-
dent Clinton pledged to work for a
"broader consensus" to meet the
protesters' concerns.
After touring a state-of-the-art
port facility for processing Washing-
ton state apples, Clinton told an
audience of farmers that he wel-
comed the thousands of protesters
who had come to Seattle to peace-
fully voice their concerns about how
the World Trade Organization oper-
"For those who came here to
break windows or hurt small busi-
nesses or stop people from going to
meetings I condemn them
Clinton said.
Clinton gave a strong defense of
the objectives of the WTO meetings
this week to launch a new round of
global trade negotiations.
He said that tearing down glo-
bal trade barriers erected against
American farm products, manufac-
tured goods and service companies
would make sure that the U.S.
economy remained strong and pros-
perous in the 21st century.
"We have to continue to open
markets but we can't do any of
that unless there is a broader con-
sensus on trade Clinton said.
Clinton's motorcade to the Se-
attle port traveled through a trashed
downtown where officials were
stepping up arrests of protesters to
regain control of the streets after
imposing an overnight curfew.
Washington Gov. Gary Locke
ordered as many as 200 members of
the National Guard and 300 state
troopers to the city, where they will
serve as backup to police who
battled rampaging protesters with
tear gas and pepper spray Tuesday.
Today, city officials declared a
no-protest zone for nearly all of the
city's downtown core, about 50 city
blocks, acknowledging they were
caught unaware by the magnitude
of the disturbance.
"Clearly, In hindsight, the ap-
proach we used yesterday did not
work and we're going to have to
take a different approach today
said Assistant Police Chief Ed Joiner
in a news conference.
Police, who arrested 68 people
Tuesday, moved in swiftly this
morning to break up pockets of
demonstrators and arrested about
250 of them, bringing in transit
buses to take them away. Most of
the protesters were nonviolent, go-
ing limp as police tried to pick them
"This conference will be a suc-
cess. The issues are far too impor-
tant to be ignored said Mike
Moore, director general of the World
Trade Organization.
Police chief Norm Stamper told
a news conference: "The downtown
area needs to be and will in fact be
made safe today for everyone
"I think we've secured the
town said Mayor Paul Schell, in-
terviewed on NBC's "Today
"Guard troops will be used pri-
marily for backup Schell said.
"They are not armed. I don't want
armed personnel in the streets. I

WTO delegates long had ex-
pected protests, but nothing like the
storm that hit Seattle when at least
40,000 activists took to the streets
on the day the conference was to

fronted police, with a handful
launching an assault on the down-
town business area.

� Crimecheck gave ECU a risk rating
of nine on a scale of one to 10n a
recent Uniform Crime Report.
Ten is the most dangerous
Many students consider our campus to be their home away from home.
We don't want to worry about someone coming into our haven and dis-
rupting it; whether it be through vandalism, theft or usually the greatest
concern, assault. But as much as everyone would like to believe "it won't
happen to me crime is an occurrence that can, and does happen every
day right here in Greenville.
If we needed a wake-up call about the level of the danger in this area,
it has arrived. The College Community Crimecheck gave ECU a risk rating
of nine on a scale of one to 10 in a recent Uniform Crime Report. Ten is
the most dangerous ranking. Although Sgt. Mike Jordan of the ECU Police
department said he doesn't believe that our crime rates are anywhere
near that high, it's still something our community should take into consid-
Each year statistics for such crimes as assault, burglary, theft and sex
offenses are listed. Although many of the statistics have fluctuated over
the years, it can be reassuring to know that some of the most violent
crimes have gone down. For example, in 1993 there were 11 reports of
aggravated assault; in 1998, there were only five.
The university does take great measures in ensuring our safety. Our
campus police department consists of 45 certified police officers, auxiliary
officers, approximately 25 student patrol officers, a total of eight telecom-
munications officers, three full-time support service personnel and up to
15 library guards. In 1998 it was one of eight law enforcement agencies in
NC to receive the Governor's Award for Excellence in Community Ori-
ented Policing.
However, students must also take a part in ensuring their own safety
by practicing the measures that have been taught to us over the years. If
the crime rates aren't truly as high as the report states, it isn't to say that it
could never be so. And if it is, students must be more aware of their sur-
roundings and protect themselves in hopes that a criminal does not find
his next victiman an easy mark.

No need to stress over exams
maybe you should choose another major. Let the class
die, and move on to what you are good at. That way
you can relax about the final, take the F with dignity,
and then go out drinking.
Students are always complaining to me about their
classes and how they don't get the concept and how
they screwed up the quiz or test. So I ask them if they
went to their professor. They say their prof, is never
there. Did you ask him for an appointment? No they
say. Did you ask another professor? Nope. Did you read
the book? nope. Did you try another book? Nope. Did
you go to the help centers? Nope. Did you ask your
friends for a study group? Nope. Did you talk to a coun-
selor? Nope. Well guess what, stupid, you deserve your
grade and I hope you fail miserably.
Maybe an "F" is just the wake up call you need to
realize that you are lazy and ignorant. The professor
teaches you your class about three hours a week. Ninety
percent of the learning you receive is on your own time.
You need to wake up and realize that not all professors
spoon feed you and you may need to think for your-
self for a change. They tend to pay for that unique fea-
ture out there in real world (unless you work for the
So work hard people, make sure you are in the major
that is right for you, and learn that when you have
mastered the subject, you can then go out and raise
hell and party all you want. You won't forget the stuff
in one night, believe me. You will do fine. And when
the final comes around, you will beat it like a rented
mule and you will feel great about. And for all you lazy,
ignorant, slack-jawed students who refuse to suck it up
and work, I hope you drown in F's and you better get
my order straight when I come to your drive-thru in
10 years.
' With final exams creeping up on us like a stalker,
ready to pounce and rape our brains, you can almost
feel the tension around campus. Students are getting
zts, getting no sleep, getting frustrated and most of
all-getting drunk. You would think the student body
just found out that the Ebola virus was discovered in
the dining hall. But it is not that serious, it's just final
exams. Students are panicking like there is no tomor-
row and I just don't see why. People should not be
scared of finals, If you have been keeping up with your
workall semester long. For those of you who have not,
then you're hosed.

Americans want know-nothing president
R.W. Hobbs, Jr.
Since he began running for the office of president,
Governor George W. Bush has not been particularly
clear on where he stands on certain issues. And Bush
seems to test the waters before deciding which direc-
tion he is going to take. In fact, one gets the feeling
after following his campaign that he is running for
president just for the heck of it. It seems as if he knows
he is popular, and he is going to follow the popular
view on issues in order to get votes.
According to every poll to date, unless he makes a
catastrophic mistake in the mean time. Bush will be
our next president. It's a shame, too, because there are
so many really good candidates out there with punc-
tuated ideas and plans, namely Steve Forbes.
Forbes is a true Washington outsider, but is very
knowledgeable when it comes to the economy and
being a leader. He also has clear-cut answers for any
question on any topic, with no doubt of where he
would take America if elected.
With candidates who are obviously much better and
more reasonably motivated than Bush, what on earth
is America's problem? Why are we choosing a follower
instead of a leader? And after the whole Clinton-
Lewinsky debacle, why would we want to replace him
with someone so similar in approach-someone who
bases his every next move on polls and advisors rather
than what is in hisher heart?
Under President Clinton and the Republican-led
Congress, America is doing just fine. Sure, we have our
share of problems to work out. But compared to other
countries and our past, America is on top. We are espe-
cially going through a prosperous economic period.
And economic prosperity leads to benefits in other ar-
Unemployment has gone down and will probably
continue to do so. The good economy will eventually
lead to a rise of the minimum wage. The stock market
is also enjoying this period. And we can also be confi-
dent that social security will indeed be secure for at
least the foreseeable future. So, with everything going
so well, America is not really in dyer need of a candi-
date who wants to make big changes in our govern-
ment-even if those changes sound good. If it ain't
broke, don't fix it. So this time Americans want some-
one who will keep on rolling with the status quo, some-
one who looks and sounds like a President, who is'gen-
erally good and who will not cause big and controver-
sial chaos in Washington.
After last year's. Zippergate, apparently anything
goes as far as immorality is concerned. Cocaine use
doesn't matter. In fact, to a lot of people our age, it's
probably a plus (but then, most of you don't vote any-
way) but that's another story.
It's rather like choosing a car: you can have the Geo
Metro-not the most attractive or roomy car in the
world, but it's a wise choice for your wallet (Steve
Forbes). There's the Jaguar, which looks good and is
comfortable, but expensive-but hey, you can afford to
splurge (George W. Bush). Oh, then there's the hearse-
-the car for stiffs (Al Gore). In the end, anything is bet-
ter than Al Gore.

Microsoft decision does not consider consumer
Marvelle Sullivan
Microsoft is considered the most
valuable, and perhaps, the most
powerful corporation in the world.
In the tradition of all great things,
Microsoft's clout is now slowly com-
ing to an end. Judge Jackson in US
vs. Microsoft, ruled that Microsoft is
indeed a monopoly, abuses its
power by thwarting and manipulat-
ing competition and therefore
poses a threat to consumers' welfare
and interest.
This decision, of course, made
the Justice Department and many
others (not to mention Microsoft's
competitors) extremely exuberant
since they see Microsoft as a ghastly
monopoly whose current existence
violates American economic prin-
ciples. While there are legitimate
arguments on both sides, in this
case, the government's incessant
need to knock down a thriving busi-
ness is taking precedent over a com-
mon sense evaluation of Microsoft
and its role in technology and the
economy. Basically, justice has not
been served in this recent decision
against Microsoft.
Laws like the Sherman Antitrust
Act, along with similar acts, are de-
signed to "bust" trusts (which are
also referred to as monopolies) that
manipulate consumers and distort
markets. Standard Oil, IBM and
AT&T are all examples of companies
that were regulated under the ide-
ology that one entity should not
dominate or monopolize an indus-
try, good or service.
Microsoft owns 90 percent of the
PC operating systems market. So,
Microsoft definitely possesses a large
corner of the market to say the least.
However, being a monopoly is not
a crime in and of itself, but it does
subject the company to governmen-
tal regulation and that is where the
debate essentially lies.
The real crime depends on
whether Microsoft abuses its power
and therefore harms both the mar-
ket and the consumer. Microsoft
officials admit they have a large
share of the market but reasonably
asserts that they are not preventing
entrance into and competition
within the market. Furthermore,
they feel that they have been ac-
commodating governmental wishes
(through bundling software) and it
is not their fault if they are thriving
because they do what they do the
best. Besides, isn't that the nature
of the American economic design?
It seems that the government, in
this particular case involving
Microsoft, is less interested in pro-
tecting the consumer and more in-
terested in gaining the ability to
wield power over the leading inno-
vator of information technology. To
accomplish this, the Justice Depart-
ment, et al. are depicting Microsoft
as some dangerous monster. This
portrayal is ridiculous and should
not be entertained.
The extent of Microsoft's wrong-
doing and its punishment has not
yet been determined. Whatever the
extent, now, the government has its
hand in the affair. This is just an
attempt to meddle in private indus-
try. No matter how dangerous domi-
nating companies like Microsoft are
portrayed to be-the government
handling this trust problem, much
less information technology as we
know it, is entirely more frighten-
ing and more damaging to the con-
sumer and to any market.

Holidays test this writer's patience

Patrick McMahon
: Well, I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving and
Is well rested for the exam blast that is right around
the comer. My Thanksgiving sucked. First off, my fa-
ther decided he wouldn't speak to me for a couple of
days (even through Thanksgiving dinner) because of
liy eyebrow ring.
I have four earrings but does that bother him?
Noooooooooooooo. But since I got my EYEBROW
pierced he went ballistic. After that whole showdown,
I decided not to show him my tattoos, figuring that he
could probably do without the further trauma. So just
to appease my parents and to ensure that they would
continue to pay for my education, I took the eyebrow
ring out. Yeah! Everybody do the happy dance! Damned
parents. Just kidding, I'd do anything for them.
Thanksgiving further sucked really, really bad be-
cause of another reason. I'm gonna get serious for a sec
folks, so pay attention. A student here at ECU who was
also from my hometown decided to kill himself over
the holiday. It came as a shock to the entire commu-
nity. No one except for a select few knew about the
pain this kid felt inside, and his friends were mainly
shut out of it.
If you or anyone you know is contemplating sui-
cide, it is NOT the answer. If it is pain you want to get
away from then realize that all you are doing is caus-
ing more pain to those around you. If you want a way
out, just hop in your car and drive until it runs out of
gas and just settle down there.
There is a wonderful counseling center here on cam-
pus and numerous hotlines that are available 24 hours
a day that are there just for you. USE THEM.
The week just got better when me and my friends
played paper rock scissors to find who would be the
designated driver for the weekend. Just take a guess as
to who lost. Yep, I stayed sober the entire break while
out partying three nights with my friends. It wasn't
that bad, at least I could keep an eye on them and make
sure they stayed ok.
All in all, it was one of the worst Thanksgivings
ever but hopefully this upcoming week will treat me
better. I'm sorry I have to mention this, for all the com-
plaining I did previously about my dad, he truly is a
great man and he is going up for a HUGE promotion
this week so everyone say a little prayer for him (re-
gardless of how you feel about me) so that he gets it.
He worked his butt off to get where he is today and he
really deserves the position.
Everyone have a safe weekend and I'll see you again
next Thursday.

are 32 actors and actresses In the "Macbeth" cast, and
for main characters like Udy Macbeth, several costume

iter WEIGHT GAIN str
during holiday season
People suffer from fat
traps, sedentary behavior
Susan Wright
On average, people gain 10 pounds during the
winter. The food and fun during the holiday sea-
son are two reasons why winter weight gain hits
the majority of Americans.
There is more to weight gain in the winter than
a voluntary change in the types of foods that are
eaten and the exercise that a person does. Sunnex,
a company that manufactures low-intensity lamps
for bright light therapy, believes that there is a
chemical change that contributes to seasonal
weight gain.
"In fall and winter, the signal to the area of
the brain that registers a signal of satiety is sup-
pressed in the evening according to
"In this manner, nature encourages mammals to
continue to eat and gain weight
In the evening, when people often have the
most access to snacks, their bodies do not signal
that they are full. This is a survival technique that
has been instilled in the body of all mammals,
which now causes weight gain that Is no longer
necessary to survive cold weather and food scar-
The food that people choose to eat, no matter
what the time of day, also contributes to weight
gain. -
"People have less access to fruits and vegetables
during the winter, and they tend to eat food that
contains more calories said Sylvia Escott-Stump,
dietetics programs director at ECU.
There are also more social gatherings during
the holiday season, and people can overeat be-
cause of social pressure. In order to avoid this trap,
it is best to either circle the table looking for some-
thing low in calories or to try a small amount of
"If you sample some of everything, the host-
ess will not be offended Escott-Stump said.

people do not usually consume during the year. For
example, one-half cup of eggnog contains between
500-600 calories, depending on how rich it was made
to taste.
"More people drink socially during the holidays
as well, and alcohol intake is a source of calories that
many people forget Escott-Stump said.
If a person was to consume an extra glass of egg-
nog a day, they would gain one pound every week
during the holiday season. A pound of fat is the
equivalent of 3,500 calories. If a person gained 17
pounds during the holiday season, it would take four
to five months to lose it and keep it off.
"It is healthy to lose between half-a-pound and
a pound per week Escott-Stump said. "If you lose
more than this on a fad diet or by depriving your-
self of food, it will come back
The best way to lose any extra pounds is through
a combination of exercise and healthy eating. Exer-
cise raises the metabolic rate in a person's body, this
rate determines how many calories a person burns
doing a certain activity.
"As we age, the metabolic rate slows per decade
Escott-Stump said. "This makes it more difficult for
a person to lose weight
According to Escott-Stump, the traditional col-
lege student has a high metabolism because they are
still young. Weight gain can still happen because
their eating habits typically change over the holi-
days. When they go home, they are around a lot of
food that they don't have access to at school.
"Usually I gain weight during the holiday sea-
son said Abby Lindsay, freshman. "1 eat all my
parent's food, and I am not used to eating that
Although all of those treats and holiday drinks
may taste good while the season lasts, once it is over,
it could take at least three or four months to lose
the 10 pounds you gained. If you do overindulge
this holiday season or have any questions about
weight loss or gain, contact Sylvia Escott-Stump at
328-1352. Dietitians are available to assist you.

fortable nonetheless.
The Courtyard Tavern offer a
variety of appetizers to start the
evening out, such as its ever-popu-
lar mozzarella sticks and onion
bloom. For those who are a little
more daring and willing to taste
something different, I recommend
the artichoke dip, as well as the Ja-
maican chicken skewers which had
a Caribbean taste, seasoned to a tee.
For such a laid-back restaurant,
entree selections such as the bour-
bon salmon grill, filet mignon del
mar and margarita swordfish were
quite sophisticated. I had the
Parmesan chicken grill, a juicy
grilled chicken breast topped with
a rich Italian sauce, provolone and
Parmesan cheese, served on top of
fettuccine noodles. I was very im-
pressed with the hearty portion size
they brought me. The leftovers

you should go all out, so I saved
some room for the desserts. Al-
though they had so many delicious
dishes to choose from like choco-

cream, I decided to go with the
apple cinnamon crisp.
If you like Applebee's apple-cin-

Courtyard's. However, if you like
Chili's apple cinnamon tart, I sug-
gest you continue going to Chili's.
It's definitely different.
Although the menu has a vari-
ety of items to choose from, most
of it is at an affordable cost. If you
walk in with $10, you will be able
to eat well and possibly leave with
a doggy bag. Of course, if you feel
like splurging a bit, S20-J25 will do
the trick.

7-year-old to compete in national
Oreo stacking competition
Japanese pick instant
noodles as food of the century
Thursday, Dec. 2,1999
COLCHESTER, 111. (AP)�Seven-
year-old Nathaniel Keithley has a
good reason for getting into the
Oreo cookies: He's got to practice.
Nathaniel leaves Sunday for the
national Oreo stacking competition
at Walt Disney World in Orlando,
Fla where he will have one shot at
stacking the most cookies in 30 sec-
onds to earn a national title.
But with a wobbly dining room
table and a little brother who likes
to eat the cookies, practicing can be
a challenge.
Nathaniel's mother, Ten Hafther,
said her son qualified by stacking
34 cookies in 30 seconds at a
Nabisco Co. booth at a K-mart store.
She later found out from Nabisco
that the world record is 30.
If he wins the national title, the
second-grader would win a $20,000
savings bond and a walk-on role on
the television show "Honey I
Shrunk the Kids"�plus a year's sup-
ply of Oreos, Haffner said.
Nathaniel said his friends made
up a new nickname for him. "
"They're calling me 'Oreo Boy'

are also wondering if I'll get sick of

about the man who barked?
Jeffrey Williams, 25, of Erie was
sentenced Thursday to 90 days of
probation for a conviction related
to the harassment of police dogs
who were Inside a car.
On June 5, Williams was riding
his bicycle in Erie when he came
upon dogs that were inside parked

He "looked into the windows of
each vehicle and made barking
noises at the dogs inside, causing
them to go into a barking frenzy
police alleged.
Patrolman Lester Fetterman told
Williams to stop.
"He ignored me, and from about
a foot away from my cruiser win-
dow, he looked in and barked at my
dog, getting the same reaction
Fetterman said.
Williams told the officer he

Bears' Miller to miss
rest of regular season
Chicago Bear's starting quarterback, Jim Miller,
has been suspended for the team final four regular
season game after testing positive for the use of
steroids violating the NFL. An NFL spokesperson
has said the Miller violated the leagues policy on
asabolic steroids and related substances. The
substance Miller was using was not identified. A
Bears' representative said that the team would not
comment until a Wednesday afternoon confer-
ence. Miller is the third NFL drug suspension in the
last two weeks. Others NFL players were New
York Giants rookie safety Lyle West and New York
Jets tackle Jason Ferguson.
SEC refs suspended
for fumble call
The crew that officiated the Georgia-Georgia
, Tech game has been suspended by the South-
eastern Conference after they missed a crucial
last minute call in Saturday's game. The seven
man crew was rated the best in the SEC but they
ruled Jasper Sanks fumble at the one yard line
wrong. Television replays show that the ball
popped out after Sanks hit the ground. The score
was tied 48-48 when the ball was awarded to
Tech, taking away the chance for a Georgia
fieldgoal. The Yellow Jackets went on to win 51-48
in overtime. It has been ruled that the team will not
officiate the ACC title game between Florida and
Alabama. Many officials involved will also lose
their post season assignments. The SEC has not
yet commented if the officials could be fired.
Rockets face up to six
weeks without Olajuwon
Houston Rocket's starting center Hakeem
Olajuwon did not have a groin strain but a hernia
that will require surgery. After further examination
Tuesday an inguinal hernia was revealed which
will bench Olajuwon for the next 4-6 weeks. At first
he was expected to miss 3-4 weeks due to the
groin strain but now will miss 4-6. A Rocket's
spokesperson said Olajuwon will have surgery
Wednesday to be performed by team physician Dr.
Walter Lowe. "I think that almost all of his symp-
toms are coming from the hernia Lowe said.

and I think that she is doing a good job so far Gibson
said. "She's playing well and we're real pleased with
her effort so far
Veney was ranked fifth last year in CAA scoring with
an average of 14.2 points per game.
"She is pretty unstoppable off the dribble Gibson

Veney was also CAA's third overall assist leader with

fourth in free throw percentage making 118 of 151 with

Rose takes first steps toward reinstatement attendance
NEW YORK (AP)�For years,
Pete Rose has been complaining
that he couldn't plead his case to
baseball. Now one of his lawyers will
get a chance.
Roger Makley, who has repre-
sented Rose since early in baseball's
gambling investigation a decade
ago will meet in Dec. or Jan. with
basfibWJ's top lawyer, Bob DuPuy.
Rose termed it the start of a dialogue

fprgj�" Rose said Tuesday. "I sur-
vived because I'm a survivor '
Following an investigation of his
gambling, baseball's career hits
leader agreed to the lifetime ban in
Aung 1989.
SSQtlle Rose was hopeful the
meeting with DuPuy is the first step
on the road to reinstatement, com-
missioner Bud Selig played down
the development.
"Mr. Rose's attorney has written
me a letter Selig said at an owners
meeting In Irving, Texas. "I read it
very thoughtfully, very carefully,
and turned it over to Mr. DuPuy.
There's nothing more involved right
now than that, nor should there be
any more read into it
DuPuy described the meeting
more as of a courtesy in which he
would listen to what Rose's side had
to say and pass it along to Selig.
"About 10 days ago, they asked
to meet with commissioner Selig
and myself. Bud asked me to meet
with them DuPuy said. "We're al-
ways amenable to discussing mat-
ters with people
Rose twice said that baseball ap-
proached him about a meeting, a
claim denied by DuPuy and Selig
spokesman Rich Levin. Rose's busi-
ness manager, Warren Greene, said
he has been dealing with DuPuy on
a "daily basis but DuPuy said he
had spoken with Greene just once.
DuPuy said Selig would not be
part of the meeting and that he
would update Selig, who has said
many times that he has seen no new
evidence that would cause him to
alter the ban.
"After we meet with them and
see what they've got, he'll make a
determination and we'll see from
there DuPuy said, adding that
Selig did not set any timetable.
The 58-year-old Rose has been
in the headlines repeatedly in recent
weeks. First, he was among the 25
players elected to baseball'sjMl-Cen-
tury team. Then he received the
largest ovation among the All-Cen-
tury players introduced before
Game 2 of the World Series at
Atlanta's Turner Field.
"That's like outdoing God in
heaven Rose said. He also got a
surge of support from the public
after NBC reporter Jim Gray ques-
tioned him sharply about gambling
immediately after the on-field cer-
Rose said his side wrote to base-
ball two years ago and again five
months ago to ask for a meeting, but
received no response, another claim
Levin denied. The latest letter was
sent about 10 days ago, a few weeks
after the Atlanta ceremony, and
Rose said DuPuy answered within
24 hours.
"I don't know if that had any-
thing to do with his responding to
our letter Rose said, referring to the
ovation. "I had to think so
Rose applied for reinstatement
in September 1997 and still hasn't
received a formal response from
Selig. While the agreement he
signed made no formal finding,
Umpires form new union; Phillips ousted
then-commissioner A. Bartlett
Giamatti said he concluded Rose bet
on the Cincinnati Reds while man-
aging the team.
While baseball's rules allowed
Rose to apply to reinstatement af-
ter one year, he waited eight. He
didn't want to apply while Fay
Vincent was commissioner because
Vincent headed the Rose investiga-
tion as deputy to Giamatti and hired
John Dowd, who compiled the re-
port on Rose's gambling.
Rose said his lawyers would at-
tack the evidence gathered by
Dowd, who said he obtained betting
slips in Rose's handwriting and with
his fingerprints, along with corrobo-
rating telephone records.
"If you believe his handwriting
expert, why not believe mine?" Rose
said. "If you believe his gambling
expert, why not believe mine? Hold
your breath and give my people a
chance to speak

'� NEW YORK (AP)�Richie
Phillips' 21-year reign as head of
baseball's umpires is over. Just like
22"rnembers of his union, he's out
In a landslide vote, major league
umpires formed a new union Tues-
day that includes dissident AL um-
pires on its board.
ThI National Labor Relations
Board announced the results of a
mail ballot, with 57 umpires voting
foCtffi Major League Umpires In-
dependent Organizing Committee
and 3J voting to retain the Major
League Umpires Association. One
vote was voided because an umpire,
whom the NLRB did not identify,
signed his name to the secret bal-
"Today is a statement by all
umpires that it's time for a change
saWAL umpire John Hirschbeck,
whaheiped lead the dissidents who
overthrew Phillips. "We want a
union that is run by umpires and
advised by attorneys
Under federal law, a majority
determined the result of the elec-
tion. Dan Silverman, director, the
NLRB's New York region, will cer-
tify the election as official unless an
objection is filed by Dec. 7.
Phillips was in New York, but
didn't go to the NLRB for the vote
count and was not available for
comment, according to his staff in
Philadelphia. His side was repre-
sented by NL umpire Jerry
Crawford, the union president, and
lawyer Pat Campbell.
"The other union won. I'm up-
set said Crawford, who added that
it was likely Phillips' union would
file objections.
Joel Smith, a lawyer for the dis-
sidents, said the law allows objec-
tions to be filed by a party claiming
there was illegal conduct that af-
Richie Phillips was ousted as head of
the Major League Umpires Association.

fected the outcome. Silverman
would determine whether to reject
the objection or call a hearing be-
fore one of his aides.
Hirschbeck said that if Phillips
had attended, he would have told
him it's time to move on, thanked
him for what he'd done for the
umpires in their careers, and told
him that major league umpires
need to move in a new direction.
When the umpires splintered
into factions in July, Phillips had
the support of approximately 41 of
the then 68 umpires. At least six of
those umpires defected, more of
the 25 newly hired umpires sup-
ported Phillips' union.
In the weeks leading up to the
election, most AL umpires ap-
peared to support the dissidents,
who were organized by Hirschbeck,
Joe Brinkman and Dave Phillips-r-
who is not related to Richie
Phillips. The dissidents accused
Phillips of being autocratic and re-
sponsive only to the union board,
which is heavily influenced by se-
nior NL umpires.
Most NL umpires backed Richie
Phillips and Crawfoid. Crawford sat
with his elbows on the table Tues-
day, clasping his hands, fidgeting,
as the votes were counted.
Brinkman said it would take
about one year for a new union to
gain support of all umpires.
"1 think they'll come back
Brinkman said. "It's just a matter of
time. It's a healing process
Phillips and Crawford hoped to
force owners into an early start to
negotiations for a new labor con-
tract when they launched their mass
resignation strategy July 14. But
when many AL umpires either re-
fused to resign or quickly withdrew
the resignations, the union cracked.
Owners hired 25 new umps from
the minjr leagues.

The East Carolinian
! Saban agrees to coach at LSU
Saban has a list of things to do-
hire a new staff, start recruiting, win
a national championship.
The new LSU coach will have to
do exactly that to convince dis-
gruntled fans he's worth the $1.2
million a year he'll be paid to turn
things around for the Tigers.
"1 think of guys that play hard.
1 think of relentless competitors. I
think of great defense Saban said.
"I think of a lot of good things and
1 can promise you that it will be our
goal an objective here at LSU to
have that kind of a football team,
that kind of a football program. I
think we should always be in the
Top 25, and that's certainly our first
That was welcome news at a
school that ust finished 3-8, its sec-
ond straight losing season. The Ti-
gers won just one conference game.
"I think he will make an imme-
diate impact athletic director Joe
Dean said. "1 think he's a guy our
team and fans can rally around. He's
got a reputation that will attract a
lot of young players
LSU lured Saban away from
bowl-bound Michigan State on
Tuesday with a five-year contract
that will make him one of the top-
paid coaches in the country, along
with Bobby Bowden of Florida State,
Steve Spurrier of Florida and Phillip
Fulmer of Tennessee.
Saban earned $697,330 a year at
Michigan State. His contract at LSU
calls for a base salary of $250,000,
with the balance coming in radio,
TV and Internet appearances, plus
other pay.
"Security is always something
that's important to you and to your
family Saban said. "But it's not the
reason I came here
Saban succeeds Gerry DiNardo
at football-mad LSU. After three
winning seasons, DiNardo was fired
with a game left when his teams fell
to 4-7 and 3-8 the last two years.
"I liked the challenge of this
football program Saban said. "I
think there is great tradition. I think
the Southeastern Conference is a
very competitive, outstanding foot-
ball conference. There's a challenge
to being part of that conference that
kind of intrigued me
A former NFL assistant, Saban
guided No. 10 Michigan State to
second place in the Big Ten. The
Spartans are headed to the Florida
Citrus Bowl, their first Jan. 1 game
since the 1989 Gator Bowl.
Michigan State's associate head
coach, Bobby Williams, was chosen

"I like college football because
when I talked to my team today, the
effect that you have on some of the
players, their lives, means some-
thing Saban said.
LSU is redesigning its stadium,
raising its capacity to 91,700, mak-
ing it the fourth-largest on-campus
arena in the nation.
At LSU, Saban will run the state's
top college football program. At
Michigan State, he always stood in
the shadow of the University of
Michigan. "At Michigan State we

it would have been Ohio State, In-

The men's lacrosse team hosted
a tournament in early November
that brought the University of
Maryland, the University of Virginia
and Calvert College to Greenville.
Maryland won the tournament over
Virginia while ECU fell to Calvert
in the consolation game.
The Tae Kwon Do club traveled
to Polytech University in Pomona,
California for the National Colle-
giate Championships where John
Manson returned with a bronze
Other club teams that hosted
games at ECU include the men's
soccer club who fell to NC State 4-1
while the women's volleyball team
held a four team tournament.
This season also marked the in-
augural year for the bowling, roller
hockey, and women's field hockey
clubs. Bowling traveled to Atlanta
for an invitational in which they
placed 18th out of 28 teams.
The roller hockey club placed
third in their first ever tournament.
