exam every five years, OR a colonoscopy
and digital rectal exam every 10 years OR a
double contrast barium enema (DCBE) and
digital rectal exam every 5-10 years. To re-
duce your risk of colon cancer, eat foods
high in fiber and low in fat (fruits, vegetables,
whole grains) arid exercise regularly. For

Chief accused of
Terra Steinbeiser
Greenville Chief of
Police Charles Hinman is
under the scrutiny of city
council members for al-
legedly misreporting city
crime statistics.
According to Bill
Gheen, a political con-
sultant and former ECU senior
class president, the Greenville
Police Department was not cal-
culating the city's annual crime
report in the same way that ev-
ery other city in America does,
prior to 1998.
"Misinformation was given
Gheen said. "1 don't claim that
it was intentional or uninten-
tional, but it's a problem any-
time government agencies mis-
report their facts to the public
The problem was first
brought to light in April of 1998,
when a comparison of the po-
lice department's 1997 figures
and the Uniform Crime Report
(UCR) indicated a significant dis-
crepancy, even though both rely
on the same information to de-
termine the city crime rate. The
police department's statistics
showed a crime increase of 1.8
percent, while the UCR deter-
mined that crime was up by 7.5
percent, according to the SBI.
Hinman had an explanation
for the disparity, however.
"The UCR is based on seven

Brody family donates $8 million to SOM
Money to be used for
research, education
Maura Buck
The Brody family of eastern
North Carolina gave the ECU
School of Medicine $8 million,
the largest single gift in the his-
tory of the university, to aid in
bringing the citizens of this re-
gion better health care.
As a result, the ECU Board of
Trustees decided to rename the
medical school the Brody School
of Medicine at East Carolina Uni-
versity to commemorate the
Brody family's charitable efforts
and long-time support.
"We are very much delighted
to have the medical school asso-
ciated with our family name
said llyman Brody. "Truthfully,
it embodies the vision and direc-
tion that the marriage between
the Brody family and ECU has
stood for for years
The latest donation brings
the cumulative amount of per-
sonal gifts on the part of the
Brody family in excess of $22
million. Since before there was a
medical school at ECU, the
Brodys have been a continuing
embodiment of support and en-
Chancellor Richard Eakin
said he feels the most exciting
aspect of receiving such a gener-
ous gift is the value the Brodys
place on the medical school at
"The Brody family has an ex-
traordinary high league of con-
fidence in the School of Medi-
cine Eakin said. "They have
committed themselves to health
and medical care in this area and
their generosity will live on for
years to come
Of the $8 million donation,
$7 million is from the Brody
Brothers Foundation and will be
placed in a permanent endow-
ment that will be used to fund
projects dealing with cancer, dia-
betes, cardiovascular disease and
obesity. The endowment money
may also be used for the pur-
chase of new state-of-the-art
technology, telemedicine, re-
search and education.
"The entire purpose of the
Brody Brothers Foundation is to
do charitable and good deeds
that will affect all East Carolin-
ians on some level Brody said.
The remaining $1 million is
a gift from Morris and Lorraine
Brody of Greenville. This gift will
fund merit scholarships in the
School of Medicine as a part of
theJ.S. "Sammy" Brody Medical
Scholars Program. As a result, the
gift will help increase permanent
endowment for undergraduate
scholarships in addition to gradu-
ate fellowships.
The Medical Foundation of
ECU, Inc the designated char-
ity for
ECU'S Division of Health Sci-
ences, will manage the gifts. A

Dr. King's memory lives on
Students, staff recall
work of civil rights leader
Angela Harne
Civil rights leader, Martin Luther King Jrs
works and memory were honored across cam-
Monday night at 6 p.m. students, staff and
community members congregated in front of
Belk Residence Hall at the top of College Hill
and marched through campus to Mendenhall
Student Center to attend a program honoring
Dr. King. The march and program were spon-
sored by the Martin Luther King Jr. (MLK) Ob-
servance Committee, the Ledonia Wright Cul-
tural Center, the Student Union Cultural Aware-
ness Committee and the Alpha Phi Alpha fra-
Ty Frazier, interim director of the Ledonia
Wright Cultural Center, said the march and
speech would continue the effort of ECU's di-
versity initiative.
"I am hoping students see Martin Luther
King as an example Frazier said. "He set the
precedent for all people, and he wanted equal-
ity for all. I hope our march and guest speaker,
civil rights activist Leslie Burl McLemore, will
show students that King was about more than
just his 'I Have a Dream' speech
Chanellor Eakin honored Dr. King. "Martin
Luther King, Jr. was a great man who lived a
great life Eakin said. "But now it is our
oppotunity to follow in his footsteps and live

According to Dr. David Dennard, associate
professor of history, the civil rights movement
of Dr. King's time would not have been suc-
cessful without the excessive amount of par-
ticipation from students of all races.
Yolanda Thigpen, chair of the cultural
awareness committee said the lessons of King
should continue throughout the entire year.
"Do not let tonight and next month Black
History Month be the only time you honor

young people in a major reform effort

North Carolina law enforce-
ment officers made 2,126 driv-
ing while impaired arrests dur-
ing the last "Booze It & Lose It"
campaign of the millennium.
"As motorists hit the road
during this busy time of the year,
law enforcement officers are
stepping up enforcement of the
state's anti-driving while im-
paired laws said Joe Parker, di-
rector of the Governor's High-
way Safety Program.
Between Nov. 19 and Dec. 5,
officers operated sobriety check-
points stationed in Asheville,
Charlotte, Greensboro,
Greenville, Raleigh and
North Carolina's fight
against drunk drivers does not
end with the "Booze It St Lose
It" campaign. On Dec. 1, 1999,
several changes in the state's
DWI law went into effect.
Beer and wine drinking by 19
or 20 year olds is now a misde-
meanor. It was previously an in-
fraction. Possession of an un-
opened or open container of al-
cohol in a commercial motor ve-
hicle is an infraction, although
this does not apply to excursion
passenger vehicles, for-hire pas-
senger vehicles or motor homes
if the alcoholic beverage is in the
possession of a passenger or is in
the passenger area.
Alcohol screening devices,
such as the Alco-Sensor, are ad-
missible to prove the presence of
alcohol but do not determine
exact alcohol concentration. As
such, results are admissible to
establish probable cause, to prove
drinking in an open container
case and to prove drinking in an
under age 21 case.
In addition, North Carolina
can seize the vehicle of a driver
whose license is revoked by an-
other state. This would apply to
a DWI violation charged to an
out-of-state driver whose license
has been revoked for a previous
Beginning July 1, 2000 a new
law to combat repeat drunk driv-
ing will go into effect. The new
law will lower the legal breath-
alcohol concentration limit to
0.04 for those who have been
convicted of one DWI and have
had their license reinstated. The

crimes�homicide, rape, robbery,
aggravated assault, motor vehicle
theft, larceny and breaking and en-
tering Hinman said. "If we get a
report of an attempted burglary, it
goes In our statistics as an attempted
burglary. The UCR takes that same
crime and reports it as an actual
breaking and entering so as to fit it
into one of those seven categories.
This is why their rate turns out
higher than ours
There was another problem with
the way the department was calcu-
lating the crime rate that made it
appear lower. If, for example, some-
one went and shot three people in
a restaurant, the incident was re-
corded by the Greenville Police De-
partment as one crime instead of
three. The UCR would report the in-
cident as three separate crimes.
Since 1998, the police depart-
ment has been computing crime the,
same way that the UCR is by the
Department of Justice.
"We play exactly by the crime
report rules Hinman said. "We
don't make mistakes
However, more recent events
and questions about crime report-
ing have put Hinman on the hot
seat once again.
Last week, as Greenville resident
Kristi Gohl was leaving the tennis
courts at Evans Park with four
young children, an unknown per-
son shot at her moving mini-van,
shattering a back seat passenger
window. No one was injured. Gohl
said it took several phone calls and
25 minutes for a police officer to
arrive on the scene.
"When the officer arrived, he
looked at thj window and deter-
mined that it had been broken by a
bullet or a pellet, but conducted no
further investigation said Scott
Gohl, Kristi's husband who arrived
at the park before the police.
When the police officer filed the was not classified as an as-
sault, but as "simple property dam-
age"�an offense that is not calcu-
lated into the UCR and could make
the crime rate appear lower than it
actually Is.
City council-woman Arielle
Morris said the police department's
handling of the case was evidence
of the under-reporting of crimes in
the city.
"The reason city council is really
looking hard at Hinman's perfor-
mance is because they are con-
cerned with the lack of community
policing, the quality of services and
the 25 percent increase in
Greenville's crime rate between
1994 and 1998 Gheen said.
The official Greenville crime re-
port for 1999 will be released in late
March or early April.
"Considering what happened in
1997,1 don't think any public offi-
cial or citizen should rely on the
Greenville PD's statistics for 1999 if
they report a significant decrease
Gheen said.

were, at the time, only reserved for
whites. I believe if we are to main-
tain equality then all Americans
must feel they are fruits of democ-
racy not just some
Dennard said students should
continue Dr. King's work.
"I believe King can help with the
development of students today
Dennard said. "King's work remains
unfinished, and I feel we need new
generations to become active in
making America equal for all citi-
zens no matter what their age, gen-
der or race
According to 1'razier, Monday
night's guest speaker, McLemore,
was recommended by Dennard.
Dennard said he felt McLemore
would bring insight to students.
"Students can learn from
Mcl.emore's civil activist experi-
ences Dennard said. "He has
walked the walk and talked the
McLemore inspired students.
"His speech was both inspiring
and interesting said freshman
Candace Owens. "I liked how he
explained that we could be any-
thing we want to be
According to the ECU News Bu-
reau, McLemore is leading the ef-
forts to promote the contributions
of the civil rights movement to high
school history and social studies
McLemore is a political science
professor at Jackson State University
in Jackson; Mississippi. He has been
published widely in areas of African-
American politics, environmental
politics, southern traditions and the
American civil rights movement.
In 1960 while a freshman at Rust
College in Mississippi, McLemore
was among students who boycotted
a segregated movie theater and
helped to organize campus voter
registration campaigns. Later he
founded the college's chapter of the
National Association for the Ad-
vancement of Colored People
(NAACP) and became an ally to civil
rights leaders Medgar Evers and
Aaron Henry who was a state guber-
natorial candidate. McLemore
served on the executive committee
of the Mississippi Freedom Demo-
cratic Party and on the staff of the
Student Non-Violent Coordinating
Committee (SNCC).
McLemore said he considers his
experiences with the civil rights
movement in Mississippi as a defin-
ing moment in his life, and he has
been involved in local and national
struggles ever since.
According to the ECU News Bu-
reau, McLemore and several of his
colleagues recently formed the
Fannie Lou Hamer National Insti-
tute on Citizenship and Democracy
to teach about how the civil rights
and labor movements have ex-
panded and redefined citizenship
and democracy. The organization
was formed to help high school
teachers learn more about the con-
tributions of the civil rights and la-
bor movements.

Terry Carter, vice president and

Duke University�The first
state primary of the 2000 election
cycle is only a few weeks away,
and candidates from both parties
gathered at the University of New
Hampshire last week to outline
their agendas. The debate topics
ranged widely, from health care
to foreign policy, but candidates
said little regarding higher educa-
tion and financial aid, the issues
with the greatest direct impact on
student life.
Broadly speaking, education
regularly appears near the top in
surveys of all Americans' major
In a New York TimesCBS
News poll conducted in early No-
vember, respondents placed edu-
cation below only health care, So-
cial Security, the budget deficit and
taxes as an important problem for
However, the public's focus on
education usually reflects concerns
about the quality of local schools,
not necessarily the issues that are
most important to universities and
their students.
"1 don't think higher education
is going to be high on the agenda
of any candidate said John
Burness, the university's senior vice
president for public affairs and gov-
ernment relations. "K through 12
education is in such difficulties na-
tionally that the focus is going to
be there
Indeed, most of the candidates'
conversations about education
have not focused on higher edu-
cation, as they have concentrated
on proposals for improving the
nation's schools and teachers.
In addition to his plans for ex-
panding preschool, Democratic
Vice President AI Gore has prob-
ably come forward with the most
concrete proposals on higher edu-
Gore has supported several
popular initiatives, including a
"national tuition savings pro-
gram which would attempt to
combine many state financial aid
programs that help students save
tax-free money for college.

crime is a-crime any way you
look at it, so why try lo cover
up the tacts?
It appears that more crime is happening in Greenville than police care
to share. The Uniform Crime Report (UCR) and Greenville Police
Department's crime reports showed significant discrepancies. UCR's re-
port showed Greenville's crime had massively increased between 1997
and 1998�7.5 percent to be exact�while the police department only
showed Greenville's crime had increased by 1.8 percent.
Something definitely went wrong -with the calculations, and we as
community members ought to know the truth. How can reports of the
same information differ by 5.7 percent? Crime is everywhere in the world,
but how can we protect ourselves if we're not being given accurate infor-
The Chief of Police said the discrepancies were misinterpretations. He
claimed the Greenville Police Department "doesn't make mistakes" and
that they play by the. "crime report rules What rules? A crime is a crime
any way you look at it, so why try to cover up the facts?
Just look at the woman driving through the community with her chil-
dren. She became the victim of a shooting, and while no one was hurt,
she still and had to wait over 20 minutes for a cop to arrive on the scene.
The shooting soon became reported as damaged property. Damaged prop-
erty? This looks like a prime example of shifting crimes to different cat-
egories so as not to alarm the public when the annual crime report comes
out. It seems that police officers should be working to reduce crime rates,
instead of trying to shift the numbers around so that it appears lower.
Greenville's Police Department better get their story straight fast, or they
might be added to the next crime report.
Empowering strategies for student leaders necessary
Na'im Akbar
Greetings, dear readers, as I write my first column
of the spring semester. 1 pray that it is as exciting for
you as I anticipate it will be for me. Some of my future
subjects will deal with issues, such as the downtown
clubs' discrimination, a report card on ECU'S efforts
in the area of diversity and cultural sensitivity, on-
going efforts to unify the ECU family and other issues
that I am sure will come up during the course of this
Having just returned from the National African-
American Student leadership Conference at Rust Col-
lege in Holly Springs, Miss I would like to give an
overview of the presentation made by myself and
YolandaThigpen on "Organizing on the College Cam-
pus We were accompanied by freshman students,
Martina Clyburn and Kim Skinner, members of SGA.
Our presentation addressed practical strategies on
how student leaders can organize on their college cam-
pus in a way that will lead to the empowerment of the
student. We also discussed the forming of critical coa-
litions in our workshop.
One of the best methods of organizing on the col-
lege campus is to know what you are talking about. To
show you know, intimately, the opinions and needs
of the students who are represented, issues must be
identified and researched so that intelligent positions
can be established and articulated to administrators.
It is very important that different opinions and alter-
natives are explored to increase the potential lor a reso-
lution of the issue or problem.
Cultivating relationships with influential campus
administrators on behalf of your group is an impor-
tant step to take. Colleges and universities are institu-
tions that exist over long periods of time. Student lead-
ers are there at one quick point in the life of the col-
lege. The most effective student leaders have patience
and understand that often, the most important thing
they can do is plant the seed that may flourish ipto
something very significant for all of the students, even
after the leaders are no longer there.
Experienced student leaders also need to take re-
sponsibility for nurturing new students. New students
can be the life of the organization, so it should be
everyone's goal to include them. When veteran lead-
ers leave, they should want to feel comfortable that
the organization will stand for a long time. Recruiting
members is only half the battle. The real challenge is
using skills and contributions of new members so that
they will want to continue the work.
Some of the suggested ways in which students can
organize on their campus are: by inviting members to
discuss problems and engaging in active listening; by
giving members a chance to prove themselves by giv-
ing them some important responsibilities; by helping
students to learn by sharing experiences that will im-
prove managerial and decision-making skills and by
presenting ideas that will benefit the school and the
overall student body.
Students can also efficiently organize by bringing
realistic options to the bargaining table. If one's plans
can fit into the university's initiatives, the administra-
tion will be more inclined to agree with his or her re-
These were some of the topics of discussion in our
workshop that will help student leaders improve rela-
tionships with students and administrators, build unity,
develop coalitions and enhance their image. The key
to success is coming up with win-win solutions, with
which everyone can live.

Remember unjust fee increases this Novemeber
Emily Little
It's the traditional stereotype: a bunch of poor col-
lege students sharing a dumpy, dirty apartment, spend-
ing their only spare pennies on pizza and beer. As soon
as they save enough money for the phone bill, some
random politician decides to siphon extra money from
higher education and up go tuition and fees. As we
tumble further into the monetary hole, our financial
aid loans mounting every semester, the General Assem-
bly continues to lick its lips with hungry excitement
over university budgets.
But we are the lucky ones. North Carolina's consti-
tution guarantees financial assistance to students of
higher education, granting us some of the least expen-
sive tuition bills in the country. It's difficult to imagine
how college students live in New Jersey, where educa-
tion costs are phenomenal.
It's obvious our fees are increasing faster than the
standard of living; the money must be going some-
where. So why us? Why does the university system al-
ways get the shaft? How have we angered the gods of
economy so much they demand we spend the nex,t 30
years paying off student loans?
Honestly, we do it to ourselves when we don't vote.
Think about it for a minute. Every year politicians
bend over backward to assure the elderly that they will
always protect Medicare and Social Security, while they
pay us a minute or two of lip service about ensuring
the future of America's youth. Sure, we may protest
the neglect of our interests in the political arena; we
may write editorials in university newspapers; we may
complain to our professors and our parents, but in the
end that will never get us what we want. The elderly
know the secret. They always vote in record numbers.
Last year, Americans in their twenties actually voted
less than the year before, and it was not a stellar num-
ber to begin with. So why should any political institu-
tion care about us? They can keep right on taking our
funding and we won't do a thing to stop it. We keep
our heads buried in our books, mumbling about the
steadily mounting bills as we grudgingly pay them.
Your vote is more than an endorsement of a par-
ticular candidate. Even if you vote straight-ticket Lib-
ertarian, you are making a statistical statement that you
care about what happens in your government. If col-
lege students start showing up at the polls, we may
just find ourselves carrying some political influence.
The election may seem far away and unimportant
right now, but the tuition increase is very real and very
close. New fee hikes have been thrust upon us for next
semester already, and they will keep right on coming if
we don't speak up at election time. So start paying at-
tention to what the politicians say. Listen to how little
they mention us and how little they care. Remember
the reason why, and think about setting aside some
time in November to let the government know that
you are tired of living in squalor to afford your "afford-
able" education.
Careless design makes site difficult to assess
Dear Editor,
I am responding to your article "Report cites high
campus crime rate" and the "Our View" column on
the opinion page Dec. 2, 1999.
Yesterday my cartography class and I spent a good
portion of our class period examining the APB Web
site, so I am somewhat familiar with this topic.
The issue here is not about the ECU police and stu-
dents being in disagreement on crime risk. The issue is
not that we need a wake-up call to an exaggerated level
of danger, although I would argue for a realistic re-
sponse to the real risks on campus. The issue is bad
mapping. Very bad mapping.
Erom conception through design, this Web site
should win an award for the worst mapping site of the
The map on the Web site depicts the Greenville
ECU community in a six-mile radius from the center
of the campus near 10th Street. This includes a very
large area that extends far from the campus and cer-
tainly far from the domain of the ECU Police Depart-
The symbols used to encode information in the
map are incorrect. The data being depicted is of a quan-
titative nature, ordinal in fact, hence a hue based color
map should not be used. This map uses a traffic light,
green, yellow, red, color scheme to illustrate the data.
Instead, a continuous value range from light-to-
dark would better illustrate the low-to-high crime risk.
The spatial distribution of risk is nearly impossible to
determine based upon visual inspection of these maps.
The data used to determine the rating as well as
the methodology also demand
attention. This is NOT crime data from the ECU
campus. This is in fact a "CAP Index assessment
What is a CAP? The site does explain. It is "a pre-
diction based on a single address centered on a map,
and the different risks of nearby neighborhoods. Risk
is estimated from data about family structure, build-
ings, migration patterns, economic activity and edu-
cation, using the relationship of these factors to past
crime reports
This is NOT actual crime data but a predictive mod-
eling tool using census tracts as the spatial unit. I his is
data obtained from a commercial data broker and the
CAP Index assessment is calculated for all census tracts
in the US.
The method of actually selecting a crime rating from
those calculated for all of the census tracts in a six mile
area is of particular interest. Two circles, the outer six-
mile radius and an inner two-mile radius circle are used
to calculate the overall statistic.
"Combined, the inner and outer areas are assumed
to be the most likely origins of criminal activity the
Web site said. "The risk scores of census tracts are aver-
aged and weighted to give an overall crime risk score
for the site
Study the maps provided on the Web site for ECU.
In no way do I believe that anything was "averaged" to
obtain a score of nine for ECU. The
census tracts receiving a rating of nine include much
of west Greenville and the large land area north of the
Ear River, which was recently underwater.
Even before being under water this was a fairly
sparsely populated area and contains large areas of land
uses such as wetlands, park, utilities and transporta-
tion. Being completely separated from the campus this
region has minimal impact on the campus itself.
I can only imagine that after the relatively sophis-
ticated CAP assessment based upon population, these
predictions are at best, misleading, and at worst, dam-
aging to the reputation of the university.
This mapping site and the statistics presented are a
typical example of what happens when a person, lack-
ing in appropriate geographic and cartographic train-
ing, produces map products.
The response to this site is also typical. It is typical
of a population lacking in basic geographic and carto-
graphic education.
Which is worse, the careless creator of the site or
the non-critical user of
the information?

having babies
YAKIMA, Washington (AP)�A
54-year-old mother of eight who
has 15 grandchildren has given
birth to triplets.

Clad only in their bathing suits,

When a person becomes em-
powered with the idea of making a
difference, the result of that small
concept can be world changing. It
can inspire others to carry on the
dream of making a change. In the
early '60s Dr. Martin Luther King,
Jr was a person who sought equal-
ity for all mankind.
"Dr. King set a precedent for any-
one said Ty Frazier. These discus-
sions he became more convinced
that nonviolent resistance was the
most potent weapon available to op-
pressed people in their struggle for
freedom. In the years from 1960 to
1965, King's influence as a civil-
rights leader had reached its peak.
King promoted non-violent
means to achieve civil-rights reform
and was awarded the 1964 Nobel
Peace Prize for his efforts.
On April 4, 1968, King went to
Memphis, Tenn to support striking
black garbage workers. It vvis here

In 1969, James Earl Ray, an es-
caped convict, pleaded guilty to the

Dr. Nancy Mayberry
Spanish Professor
Susan Wright
Originally from Southern
Ontario, Dr. Nancy Mayberry has
been a Spanish professor at ECU for
the last 32 years.
After earning the Woodrow Wil-
son Scholarship at the University of
Western Ontario, Mayberry was of-
fered the chance to earn her master's
degree anywhere she liked. She de-
cided to attend UNC-Chapel Hill
since the university had one of the
best Spanish programs at that time.
After earning both her master's and
doctorate in Spanish, Mayberry
taught at UNC-Greensboro and fi-
nally ECU.
Mayberry is not only a dedicated
teacher, but also a pianist. Although
she does not play professionally, she
has taken music lessons since she
was nine and earned an associate's
degree from the Conservatory in
Toronto. According to Mayberry,
Mozart is her favorite composer, and
her favorite piece is "Concerto in A
During the 32 years she has
taught at the university level,
Mayberry has had some interesting
encounters. Once, after giving a stu-
dent a deserved "D Mayberry dis-
cussed the student's disagreement
over the grade. The discussion ended
when, in a fit of anger and
frustration.the student, a Fundamen-
talist preacher yelled, "Women
have no right to be in positions of
authority over men anyway
The best experiences she has
had with students are the ones who
were eager to learn.
"There are some students who
are like a sponge Mayberry said.
"They just soak up everything you
have to teach them
Although she has spent the past
32 years as a professor at ECU, she
maintains her Tarheel loyalty.
Mayberry is a self-proclaimed "big
Tarheels fan" and avidly watches
both football and basketball games.
Maybe after retiring from ECU next
year, she will see the light and be-
come an equally enthusiastic Pi-
rates fan.
Martin Luther King, Jr. changed the lite of thousands of Americans
in the course of his lifetime, (photo from the World Wide Web)
Excerpt from King's Aug. 28,1963 speech
I have a dream today.
I have a dream that one day every valley shall be exalted, every hill
and mountain shall be made low, the rough places will be made plain,
and the crooked places will be made straight, and the glory of the Lord
shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together.
This is our hope. This is the faith with which I return to the South.
With this faith we will be able to hew out of the mountain of despair a
stone of hope. With this faith we will be able to transform the jangling
discords of our nation into a beautiful symphony of brotherhood. With
this faith we will be able to work together, to pray together, to struggle
together, to go to jail together, to stand up for freedom together, know-
ing that we will be free one day.
This will be the day when all of God's children will be able to sing
with a new meaning, "My country, 'Us of thee, sweet land of liberty, of
thee I sing. Land where my fathers died, land of the pilgrim's pride,
from every mountainside, let freedom ring
And if America is to be a great nation this must become true.
So let freedom ring from the prodigious hilltops of New Hampshire.
Let freedom ring from the mighty mountains of New York. Let freedom
ring from the heightening Alleghenies of Pennsylvania!
Let freedom ring from the snowcapped Rockies of Colorado!
Let freedom ring from the curvaceous peaks of California!
But not only that; let freedom ring from Stone Mountain of Georgia!
Let freedom ring from Lookout Mountain of Tennessee!
Let freedom ring from every hill and every molehill of Mississippi.
From every mountainside, let freedom ring.
When we let freedom ring, when we let it ring from every village
and every hamlet, from every state and every city, we will be able to
speed up that day when all of God's children, black men and white
men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join
hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual, "Free at last! free
at last! thank God Almighty, we are free at last

Classmates and neighbors of Sa-
rah, of Leon, are circulating petitions
for her reinstatement so she can
graduate with her class this spring.
Bluestem Principal Dale Harper
said administrators were immedi-
ately concerned when they read the
poster, which was placed on a class-
room door and was unsigned.
In the center of the drawing is
the word "please" written in big, red
letters. Sentences spiral out from the
middle to show the madman's spin-
ning, paranoid thoughts, Sarah said.
"Please, tell me who killed my
dog it reads. "I miss him very

Sarah sees her punishment as a
gross overreaction to what was in-
tended to be thought-provoking
"It was entirely fictional Sarah
said. "It was just a different kind of
art I wanted to try. It was supposed
to be a look into the head of a mad-
man. I never expected this
A three-person school district
suspension committee found that
the artwork constituted a "threat
of violence" against the school and
warranted a suspension for the rest
of the school year.
Sarah and her parents, Jerry and
Julie Boman, have filed an appeal
to the Bluestem school board,
which can overturn the panel's
decision or reduce the punishment.
A hearing has been set for Thurs-
Jerry Boman said he understood
the concern but argued that school
officials were going too far.
"My daughter has never even
had detention he said. "My wife
and I aren't even really big fans of
this piece. But we're intelligent
enough to know that it is art, not a
threat against anybody
Sarah said she decided to try
� conceptual art - which emphasizes
an idea, rather than an object - af-
ter seeing several pieces recently at
Bethany College in Lindsborg.
So worked on some for her port-
folio, which she plans to submit to
college art schools. As she has done
in the past, she posted the piece at
school to get feedback from class-
mates and teachers.
When school officials saw the
picture, she was taken to Harper's
office immediately.
After school, officials mentioned
the police; she said she panicked,
ripped up the picture and flushed it
down a toilet.
However, she said she knew
school officials already had copies
of it and she destroyed it out of fear.
"I just freaked out she said. "I
didn't know what to do
Since her suspension, Sarah has
taken her portfolio to an assistant
professor of art at Wichita State
She has a letter from the pro-
fessor saying the "madman" piece
qualifies as conceptual art.
Sarah said she is surprised thaj
she hasn't been able to work sornff
thing out with school officials.
Just recently they selected her
to represent the student body in in-
terviewing potential candidates for
a teaching opening.

not to do it, I never would have put

Johnson resigns as Dolphins coach
Jimmy Johnson stepped down from the helm of
the Miami Dolphins Sunday, less than 24 hours after
the worst loss in team history.
Johnson spent four years as head coach of the
Dolphins but failed to get them as far as the AFC
Championship game. Johnson will be replaced by
, his assistant, Dave Wannstedt. Wannstedt was
signed to a three-year contract to lead the Dolphins.
Johnson will stay on with the team as a consultant.
�I feel that he has built a solid foundation and

, him the best. I also want to congratulate Dave on

Dolphins lost to the Jaguars 62-7 in the playoffs.

Azinger wins Sony Open
After overcoming Cdncer, Paul Azinger thought it
would be smooth sailing. That was before his best .
friend on the tour, Payne Stewart, died in a plane
crash last fall.
Sunday, Azinger won his first golf tournament
since cancer took him off the tour.
Azinger led the Sony Open from the start and
cruised to a seven-stroke victory.
"Considering all that has happened around us
the last year it really changed how me and my

Tyson will fight in UK
The English women's group, Justice for Women,
lost their bid to bar Mike Tyson from fighting in
Manchester, England.
The group challenged a judge's decision to let
Tyson fight despite a 1992 rape conviction that
would have barred Tyson from entering the country.
The judge cited "special circumstances" because
the fight has already sold out and will mean a finan-
cial windfall for Manchester and its merchants.
U.S. soccer draws with Iran 1-1
The United States soccer team drew with the Ira-
nian National team in a "friendly" in the Rose Bowl
Sunday. Iran went up 1-0 on a goal from Mehdi
Mahdavikia. The U.S. tied when midfielder Chris
Armas blasted a shot in the 48th minute. Iran de-
feated the U.S. 2-1 in the 1998 World Cup. The loss
ousted the Americans from the tournament.
Packers hire Sherman
The Green Bay Packers are expected to announce
Mike Sherman as their new head coach today. Sherman
is the offensive coordinator for the Seattle Seahawks,
under former Green Bay head coach, Mike Holmgren.
The Packers fired head coach, Ray Rhodes after his
first season earlier this month. The Packers went 8-8
in the 1999-2000 season.
Lady Pirates cruise to
two conference victories
Emily Koperniak
The ECU women's basketball team was able to pull
off an impressive weekend of competition with victory
over William & Mary and Richmond. Throughout the
first half of the Pirates battle against William & Mary,
ECU took a strong lead for a score of 35-26 at halftime.
Cecilia Shinn brought 10 points as well as six re-
"I feel as if we have been up and down this season
and that is reflected in our record Shinn said. "We
just need to take our focus and aggressiveness from the
ODU game and play that way for the rest of the sea-
William & Mary took a short lead in the second
half bringing the score to 42-41. However, ECU gained
a 12-point lead Friday night for a score of 57-45.
Danielle Melvin lead the Pirates with 20 points, one
steal, four rebounds and one assist. Shooting 10-for-15
on the night, Melvin ranks among the top in the CAA
concerning shooting percentage and points per game.
Waynetta Veney contributed 16 points, four re-
bounds, five assists and one steal. Shinn wrapped the
game up with 14 points, nine rebounds and three as-
sists. Seven points, four steals, three assists and seven
rebounds were added by Tamilla Murray.
Sunday afternoon at Minges, the Pirates managed
to blow away Richmond with a score of 96-66. ECU is
now 2-2 in CAA competition and 7-8 overall for the
season. Falling behind in the first half, ECU soon took
� control of the game in the 17th minute. The Pirates
held the game at both ends with a shooting percent-
age of 62.5, whereas the Spiders percentage only tal-
lied at 17.6.
"Everybody that comes to our games knows that
one day we come in with a certain amount of emo-
tion, and one minute with another, and we just want
to focus on coming out with defensive intensity said
senior guard Waynetta Veney.
Veney contributed 18 points for the afternoon in
addition to a season high of six assists, as well as two
rebounds. Scoring 21 points, Roc Canady earned top
scoring honors, only two points shy of reaching her
career high. Melvin added 12 points along with Shinn's
eight points and seven rebounds. Seven points were
added by Tali Robich along with her career high 11
"It was important to get everyone on the team some
minutes said Head Coach Dee Gibson. "That helps
us become more experienced and helps us to improve
throughout the season
The Pirates will be traveling to play American this
Friday and George Mason on Sunday.

Florida trip proves

Following their annual holiday
trip to Florida, the ECU swim team
faced the Virginia Military Institute
and conference opponent George
Mason last week. Thursday, the
men's team took on a VMI team
who showed up a day earlier then
"VMI was on its way back from
its Florida training trip, and due to
some travel problems, they came a
day early and we swam the meet
said Head Coach Rick Kobe.
The Pirates defeated the Cadets,
"VMI was out-manned and our
guys swam really well Kobe said.
"We are extremely pleased with our
performance coming off our Christ-
mas training trip
The win Thursday was the first
of two victories the men would pick
up this week. Saturday the men, as
well as the women, notched wins
against George Mason.
The Lady Pirates won in a domi-
nating fashion. The Pirates crushed
the Patriots 127-90. The meet fea-
tured first place finishes in all but
one of the races they competed in.
"This is our first meet since train-
ing and we swam very well, espe-
cially considering that we feel worse
at this point in the season then we
have all year said team captain
Hollie Butler.
Both the men's and the women's
teams were coming of off of an in-
tense training session in Florida. The
Winter Break trip features the luxury
of practicing in an olympic-size
swimming pool for four hours a day,
and daily weight-lifting sessions.
The Lady Pirates are feeling very
confident about their chances of
going to the conference meet.
"If the duel meet season is any-
thing to gauge the team by, then
we will have a great conference
meet Butler said. "If we can con-
tinue to swim as fast and as hard as
we have unshaved, then just imag-
ine how we will do once we are
The men also won their meet
coasting into a 115-83 victory.
As was the case with the Lady
Pirates, the men's team had many
first place finishes also.
The men's team won the 4(H)-
meter relay and had first place fin-
ishes in the next two events, Casey
Charles in the 200-freestyle and
Adam Gaffey in the 1000- and

Mason would come at us said

their season and looking forward to
the conference meet, which will
gauge the caliber of this year's

tain Matt Jabs. "This was a sprint'
meet, where the events were basi-
cally cut in half. We do this to get
us ready for that kind of event at
The next meet for the Lady Pi-
rates will be Friday against Rich-

It The East Carolinian
Super Bowl XXXIV: Who cares?
No stars, no
dynasties, no interest
Stephen Schramm
Last weekend the road to the Su-
per Bowl XXXIV narrowed to only
four lanes. Jacksonville, Tennessee,
Tampa Bay and St. Louis head into
the conference championship games
this weekend with their eyes on the
Georgia Dome and pro football's
greatest prize. But let's be honest,
does anybody really care?
Of the four teams left, no one has
got the name power of the 49ers or
the Cowboys. No teams have a bona
fide superstar who has transcended
the the world of football. Hell, three
of these teams weren't around five
years ago.
The Rams ;vere in Los Angeles,
the Titans were still looking for oil
but getting empty seats in Houston
and the Jaguars existed only on pa-
Let's face it, Super Bowl XXXIV
will have no John Elways or Brett
Favres, no Steel Curtain or Dirty
Birds. Will that translate to luke-
warm fan interest in the nation's
biggest game?
The fact remains that the four
teams left do not have extensive fan
bases. Almost everywhere in the
country you can find Cowboy fans,
Niner fans and Bronco fans, but the
four teams left don't draw many
spectators from outside their re-
gion. You do not see people wear-
ing Jaguars garb and Buccaneer
paraphernalia everywhere.
Walking across campus I don't
come across people sporting Titans
jerseys (though they are quite hand-
some) nor do I see many Rams hats
atop the heads of the ECU student
body. However, Niner fans need a
new team so we might see these
things after all.
None of these teams have that
great angle to give to the big game.
In years past it had been the rebirth
of the Packer dynasty in
"Titletown" and John Elway's quest
for the ring that had brought in the
fans. People tuned out to see how
bad the Niners would slaughter the
sacrificial AFC lamb or how the Bills
would choke. What will be the great
story line this year? The amazing
story of how Shaun King and the
Bucs overcame Trent Dilfer?
Even the touchdown celebra-
tions lack flair. Now I'm not much
of a dancer but for a brief while
early last year, the Atlanta Falcons'
Dirty Bird dance was cool. Now it
was no Ickey Shuffle, but it got the
job done. The Rams' dance on the
other hand looks like something we
used to do in Little League baseball
practice to learn how to field those
pesky grounders.
While the Titans, Jaguars Buc-
caneers and Rams are very good
football teams, and many would
say, they are the four that deserve
to still be playing, they lack that
mainstream appeal that makes for
great theater.

The East Carolinian It-
Phills' son: "Dad's with the angels"
!j moving eulogy for Charlotte Hor-
nets guard Bobby Phills was made
by his wife, Kendall. The most cou-
rageous one came from his team-
mate and close friend, David Wesley.
Phills' life was celebrated Friday
at a memorial service, where his
family was joined by members of
the NBA's Hornets and New York
Knicks, friends and former team-
mates. His funeral is scheduled for
Sunday in Louisiana.
� Wesley, who police say was rac-
ing his teammate Wednesday before
Phills lost control of his sports car
and collided with an oncoming car,
needed a moment to compose him-
self before he addressed the family.
"I don'tjeally know what I want
to say, but he was my partner in
crime Wesley said. "We had some
Making no references to the ac-
cident, Wesley remembered Phills as
a fierce competitor on the basket-
ball court and on the golf course.
"He always had to win and even
when he wasn't winning he talked
enough trash to make you think he
was winning he said, drawing
laughter from the mourners.
Negating the despair that has
gripped the community for days,
Kendall Phills set the tone for the
service as she got up to speak near
the open casket. She carried their
young son, Bobby Phills III, to the
With a little gentle prodding
from his mother, 3-year-old Bobby
told several hundred mourners:
"Daddy is in heaven with the an-
gels He then ran off and hugged
his 1-year-old sister, Kerstie.
With few dry eyes left in the
Central Church of God, Kendall
Phills spoke glowingly of her love
for her husband. They met in high
school when she was just 14.
She described Bobby Phills as
"intelligent, competitive, funny
and compassionate
"He adored our beautiful chil-
dren and he loved his parents
Kendall Phills said, finally breaking
down into tears. "It's truly been a
blessing for me to have Bobby as
my husband, friend and eternal
soul mate. While we will meet
again, 1 will always love you,
Phills, 30, was in a bronze cas-
ket surrounded by about a dozen
flower arrangements and two
poster-size photographs of him
while he played for the Hornets.
One of the arrangements was in the
shape of a basketball hoop and ball.

Phills' former teammates also at-
tended the service.
Hornets coach Paul Silas also was
unable to control his emotions
when he was asked to say a few
"The thing I think I'll miss the
most is his big smile, an infectious
smile Silas said. "He would
brighten up the room when he en-
tered. And he was smart and per-
ceptive on and off the court
Silas said Phills took it in stride
when he was asked to give up his
starting job this season.
"When I asked him to go to the :
bench he said, 'Coach, I'll do what-
ever I need to do to help this team
he said.
Hornets vice president Bob Bass
nearly lost his composure when he
started to talk about his former
"The bad thing I feel he said,
his voice shaking, "was that I never
told Bobby that I love him. God, it's
tough to lose a guy like that
The emotional service was the .
start of what promises to be a diffi-
cult period for Phills' former team-
mates. The Hornets were to fly to
New York today to play the Knicks.
After the game, the team was to take
a charter back to Charlotte, then fly
to Baton Rouge on Sunday for Phills'
funeral and burial.
Then, on Monday, the Hornets
will host the Toronto Raptors at the
Charlotte Coliseum.
The funeral will be held on the
campus of Southern University,
where Phills earned a bachelor's
degree in animal science.
A moment of silence as well as a
video tribute to Phills had been
planned for Friday night's game.
That will be done at Monday's home
game. His teammates plan to wear
a patch bearing Phills' No. 13 ott
their jerseys for the rest of the sea
In addition, the Hornets will re-
tire his jersey number at their Feb.
9 home game against Cleveland, the
team with which Phills spent his
first six NBA seasons.

It includes local, state, national, and international stories with a focus on campus events.
