protest state fee hike

The UNC System Board of
Governors met last Friday to dis-
cuss and vote on tuition increases
for all 16 campuses in the 2000-
01 school year.
The Board of Governors con-
cluded that NCSU and UNC-CH
will receive a $600 increase over
the next two years. UNC-C and
ECU will receive a $300 increase
also for the next two years. UNC-
W will receive a $235 increase.
These numbers total a 2.1 per-
cent increase straight across the
The increase at ECU will af-
fect both in-state and out-of-state

were present. Appalachian State
sent three SGA representatives.
SGA President Cliff Webster
said the president of UNC-
Wilmington was not able to at-
tend due to an Illness, but no rep-
resentatives were sent. The Char-
lotte president did not attend.
According to Webster, all
were present to get their
voicesheard to. stop the
universitiestuition increases.
Despite the presidents' and
disagreementwith the tuition
increase, the BOG passed the
resolution anyway.
According to Webster the tu-
ition increase plan must now
bepassed by the legislative board.
"I feel the BOG took the
legislative's job, and 1 do not
agree with that at all Webster
said. "Now the legislature has no
connection with the NC system
at all because the job has already
been done
During the BOG meeting, SO
Chapel Hilfstudents sat in on the
meeting demonstrating in silent
protest. They held signs saying
"$600 Hurts" and "Keep UNC
According to Webster, Jeff
Nieman who sits on the BOG
motioned not to increase tu-
itions of ECU, UNC-W or UNC-
CH, but his motion was defeated
with a vote of 17-11.

they say, 'hey you stuck through
losing your possessions and
watching your house go under
water. So now we'll give you an
award $300 tuition increase
Thanks a lot it's ludicrous.
There was no plan for the use of
the extra money, especially from
our administration. Chancellor
Eakin said it would be used for
faculty salaries, financial aid arid
capital improvement some-
thing we really need?"
Michael Orr, the sophomore
class president, said the voices of
students were heard through
their presidents.
"I am disappointed On said.
"But I feel that the SGA Presidents

Webster said the tuition in-
crease was the same as Chancel-
lor Eakin had proposed earlier.
He added that the previous
capital fee proposed by UNC
President Molly Broad that would
have had students paying for
building maintenance was re-
jected by the BOG.

Last September, Hurricane
Floyd destroyed Pattillo Elemen-
tary School in Tarboro leaving
500 fourth and fifth graders
without permanent classrooms.
Upon hearing of the devas-
tation, numerous members of
the ECU community have come
together to help the faculty and
the students of the elementary
The commitment to Pattillo
began with the dedication of sev-
eral students from the depart-
ment of recreation and leisure
studies under the direction of Dr.
Carmen Russoniello.
"These children are at such a
developmental age where they
are just beginning to trust envi-
ronments outside of their
home Russoniello said . "It's a
shame that things like this can
obstruct their learning
For the past few months, stu-
dents have gone to the tempo-
rary school sites and facilitated
activities to get the children out
of the trailers and to promote fit-
ness. In addition; the group
raised funds to provide the in-
stitution with some much
needed athletic equipment.
"Primarily, there was a need
at Pettily) and as we got in-
volved it turned into a partner-
ship Russoniello said.
While the students still visit
Pettily three times a week un-
der the direction of a graduate
student, Judy Baker, director of
volunteer services on campus
got involved as well. She helped
orchestrate a continuous com-
mitment from many different
organizations on campus, in:
eluding the OKD National Lead-
ership Honors Society on cam-
Baker, along with members
of the OKD organized the T's
and Tales program that pro-
vided the students with both t-
shirt's and books to take home.
"Imagine spending all day in
trailers after losing your school
and then having to go home to
one, in most cases, because you
lost your home as well Baker
said. "It is just an all around dif-
ficult situation
Recently, there was an
awards ceremony held for those
students that made the Honor
Roll and various awards along
with the t-shirt's and books were
distributed to the children.
"We wanted the kids to
know that in spite of everything
that happened, they did the
right thing by committing
themselves to their school
work Baker said.
The Barefoot Committee, a
division of the Student Union,
is now planning a field trip for
the students of Pettily to come

University of Arizona-In the
wake of the weekend stabbing of a
gay University of Arizona student,
a march protesting homophobia
will wind its way through the cam-
pus area this Sunday and culminate
with a speak-out event on the Uni-
versity of Arizona Mall.
UA assistant English professor
David Robinson and several mem-
bers of the Tucson community� in-
cluding the UA Pride Alliance and
the local chapter of the gay rights
organization, Lesbian Avengers-
are planning the march, which will
begin at 2 p.m. Sunday at Catalina
Park on North Fourth Avenue and
East Second Street.
The march route will include the
Rainbow Planet Coffee House, 606
N. Fourth Ave which is where the
attack occurred.
Lesbian Avengers' member Dace
Park said demonstrators are encour-
aged to bring flowers to drop on the
street in front of the cafe. Park added
that the flowers should be free of
wire or cellophane wrappings to
keep the mess to a minimum.
Both Park and Robinson hope
the demonstration will draw a large
crowd of supporters.
"We're optimistic we'll have sev-
eral hundred Park said. "We're
hoping for several more
Robinson has similar aspira-
"I'm hoping we may very well
have more than a thousand
Robinson said.
One of the attendees may be U A
President Peter Likins, whom the
march organizers have invited to
participate. However, Robinson said
Likins is being invited only to
march, not to speak.
"It's felt that deeds, not words,
are needed from him said
Robinson said Likins should
march to show his support and
learn more about the needs of the
gay community, which Robinson
said are not being met with actions
such as Likins' refusal to allow same-
sex partner benefits to gay UA em-
ployees, and the attacks Arizona
state Rep. Jean McGrath, R-Glen-
dale, has made on homosexual
course content.
The stabbing victim, a 20-year-
old philosophy junior, may be in
attendance as well. But if he is not,
he will send a representative to read
a statement, Robinson said.
At the speak-out, participants
may share their experiences with
anti-gay hostility and other issues
regarding homophobia�physical
and non-physical�as a way of edu-
cating all attendees on the connec-
tion between violence, such as the
stabbing and subtler forms of intol-
erance, said Robinson.
Sunday's demonstration should
be promoted as a march and speak-
out, rather than a vigil, because of
the sad and subdued tones a vigil
implies, Robinson said.
"Personally, my experience with
vigils has been that they either ex-
plicitly or implicitly disallow anger
Robinson said. "There are many,
many of us that are enraged at the
incident that occurred and ho-
mophobic violence in general
Robinson said he is also "en-
raged" at the stabbing, and that the
anger he and other people are feel-
ing can be healthy as a positive
agent of change. However, non-an-
gry contemplation is also allowed,
said Robinson.
"People at this event will be al-
lowed to have whatever reaction
Robinson said. "We ought to be able
to have a wide gamut of emotions
Park said she expects the dem-
onstration to be a calm and safe one.
Peace keepers will be on hand to
protect marchers from potholes and
minor injuries as well as hecklers �
though Park said she does not ex-
pect any.
"We expect it to be a peaceful
march Park said. "There's no rea-
son why it shouldn't be
In addition to participating in
Sunday's activities, Robinson said
there are more ways to be actively
involved in the issue.
A grand jury could formally in-
dict the attacker, 37-year-old Gary
Grayson, as early as today. Though
Grayson was arrested for aggravated
assault, Robinson said people
should call the Pima County"
Attorney's Office and suggest
Grayson's charges be increased to
attempted murder.
University of FIorida-The
owner of the MealPass company, a
business that sold debit cards that
could be used at off-campus restau-
rants, said Thursday he will not be
able to make good on his clients'
Stephen Johnston II, president
of University MealPass Corp said
he is too far in debt to refund bal-
ances left on his customers' cards
when he pulled his business out of
Gainesville in November.
Twelve people reported they
lost money when Johnston, 28,
stripped area restaurants�such as
Chesapeake Bagel Bakery and Five
Star Pizza�of the machines
needed to process the cards while
they still had a remaining balance.
"Unfortunately there is noth-
ing I can do Johnston said. "I feel
very badly. There is no money for
them to take
Johnston said he is about
$100,000 in debt and plans to file
for bankruptcy soon.
On Nov. 29 the company left
Gainesville having only a handful
of clients, he said. Johnston said
he sent e-mail messages to all his
clients and posted a letter at all the
restaurants where cards could be
used. The letter stated that clients
could call the company's phone
number and receive a refund for
their remaining balance.
Many students complained
that after seeing the letter, they
could not contact the company
through any means�faxes, e-mails
and phone calls. Calls placed to the
number three days after the letter
was posted were unsuccessful be-
cause the number had been discon-
nected. Johnston said the phone
had been cut off because he could
not pay the bill.
One client took her complaint
about the company to the police
after she was unable to reach
bUnUUL from page 1
the necessary $1500. Tickets for the
raffle can be purchased for $2 in ei-
ther Dowdy Student Stores or
Mendenhall. Any proceeds over the
goal will be put aside for future
"I think that the greatest thing
about this relationship is that in a
lot of tragic situations there is an
initial burst of aid, but in this cir-
cumstance, we wanted a long term
commitment Russoniello said.
"We are just trying to do our part
while making the experience for the
kids both fun and educational said
Adam Mitchell, chair of the Bare-
foot Committee. "We want to en-
courage all students to purchase
tickets to help in the effort
The next project will be a fund
raiser to supply each teacher with
fresh daffodils to decorate their
classrooms. The project will take
place the first week in March and
will be in cooperation with the
American Cancer Society, Epsilon

there have been a number of mon-
etary donations made to the school
as well, including those from the

why some see the flag as offensive.

Human rights groups push for
Pinochet's medical records
LONDON (AP)�Six human rights groups on Tues-
day joined Belgium in formally requesting a review of
a judge's decision to leave Gen. Augusto Pinochet's
medical records confidential.
Amnesty International and five other organizations
filed an application seeking a judicial review before a
panel of senior High Court judges. It is expected to be
heard next week.
The move follows a High Court judge's decision
Monday to reject a request by Belgium and the human
rights groups to challenge the secrecy of the medical
report, which found the former Chilean dictator unfit
to stand trial in Spain on allegations of human rights
Britain's top law enforcement official, Home Secre-
tary Jack Straw, has said he will not rule on whether to
extradite Pinochet while court action is pending. How-
ever, he announced earlier this month that he is in-
clined to let the 84-year-old general return home, cit-
ing the report by the independent medical team.
Belgium, France and Switzerland are also seeking
Pinochet's extradition on behalf of citizens of their
countries who contend their relatives were jailed or
killed in Chile. Only Belgium is involved in the legal
challenge to see Pinochet's medical records, however.
Belgium and the human rights groups want to re-
view the records before Straw's final ruling�which also
can be appealed�but Straw has refused, citing
Pinochet's right to patient confidentiality.
In his ruling, High Court Justice Maurice Kay dis-
missed Belgium's arguments and held that the human
rights groups have no legal standing in the case.
Amnesty spokesman Claudio Cordone disagreed
"We do think we have a strong case and it is a per-
fectly legal business of ours to raise objections to the
process. We've been doing it for 30 years in all sorts of
contexts he said.
The other groups involved are Human Rights Watch,
the Redress Trust, the Association of Relatives of the
Disappeared, Justicia and the Medical Foundation for
the Care of the Victims of Torture.
Also Tuesday, Spain's Supreme Court rejected a law-
suit aimed at forcing Spain to appeal if Britain decides
to free Pinochet rather than extradite him.
The ruling allows Foreign Minister Abel Matutes to
keep his pledge to respect the ruling expected by Straw
to free the aging general.
Joan Garces, a lawyer working to get Pinochet ex-
tradited, accused Matutes last week of withholding
documents that might help the case of those who want
Pinochet to stand trial. The Foreign Ministry denies it
withheld any papers it should have passed on.
Pinochet was arrested during a visit to Britain in
October 1998 while recuperating from back surgery in
a London hospital. He has spent the past IS months
fighting extradition to Spain.
An official Chilean government report says 3,197
people died or disappeared during the general's 1973-
90 dictatorship.
Simpsons" episode brings back
haunting memories for some
CHARLOTTE (AP)�A brief scene
in this week's "The Simpsons
which shows a flying tire hitting a
cartoon character at a race, has
evoked bitter memories of last year's
deaths at Lowe's Motor Speedway.
The local Fox affiliate, WCCB-
TV, pulled ads promoting the show
with the 5-second snippet after a
viewer complained. But it plans to
air the episode Sunday night, pref-
acing it with a brief warning about
the racetrack scene.
"We find absolutely no humor
in it Jerry Gappens, a spokesman
for Lowe's speedway, said Friday.
"It's a senseless act on the show's
producer's part. What they find
humorous in New York or Los An-
geles is not always the case in other
parts of the country
On May 1, three fans were killed
and eight others injured when de-
bris flew into the stands from a
three-car wreck in an Indy Racing
League event at Lowe's. In July 1998.
three people were killed and six hurt
in a similar incident at the U.S. 500
at Michigan Speedway.
In the "Simpsons" episode, the
character Lenny waves his hand to
try to get a free T-shirt that is being
tossed into the stands. Instead, he
is struck by a tire.
The show created a new promo
without the tire scene and sent it to
Fox affiliates in Charlotte and
Greensboro on Wednesday, Antonia
Coffman, a "Simpsons" spokes-
woman, told The Charlotte Ob-
server. Phone calls Friday to the pro-
duction company were not imme-
diately returned.
"FOX 18 and the Fox Network
are extremely sensitive about the
tragedy at Lowe's Motor Speedway,
and the families and those involved
have our deepest sympathy Mark
Turner, general manager and vice
president of WCCB-TV, said Friday.
But he said station executives
decided to air Sunday's night's epi-
sode after watching the entire 30-
minute episode.
"After seeing it, in no way, shape
or form does it parody or make fun
of the accident at LMS he said.
"The scene lasts five seconds and the
character is reaching for a T-shirt
and someone throws him a tire. The
tire is not coming off the track
Turner said "Simpsons" fans
know the difference between poor
taste and satire.
"We are not in the business of
censoring he said. "That's what we
have off switches and remotes for.
We'll let our viewers decide
Gappens praised WCCB for pull-
ing the promo so quickly, but said
he wished it would preempt the
"I just feel it's not necessary to
use this kind of humor he said.
"There's a lot funnier things they
could be doing than this
Sunday's show also depicts race '
fans as hillbillies and pokes fun at
evangelist Billy Graham.
Senators launch fight
against college sports betting
WASHINGTON (AP)-The point-shaving
scheme that landed Kevin Pendergast in a federal
prison began with illegal bribes to Northwestern
University basketball players, but it ended with his
cohort doing something legal�walking into a Las
Vegas casino and placing bets on the fixed games.
"Without Nevada, without the option of bet-
ting money in Nevada, the Northwestern basket-
ball point-shaving scandal would not have oc-
curred Pendergast said.
Pendergast, 28, who served two months in

weeks afterward.
Schulz had seemed fine earlier
in the day and had gone to his
daughter Jill Transki's home in Santa
Rosa. Only his wife, Jeannie, was
with him when he died, Craig
Schulz said.
His wildly popular "Peanuts"
made its debut on Oct. 2, 1950. The
travails of the "little round-headed
kid" and his pals eventually ran in
more than 2,400 newspapers, reach-
ing millions of readers in 68 coun-

13 Sunday editions, showed Snoopy

It ended with his signature.
Over the years, the Peanuts gang
became a part of American popular
culture, delivering gentle humor
spiked with a child's-eye view of
human foibles.
Sergio Aragones, a Mad maga-
zine cartoonist and friend for more
than 30 years, called Schulz "a true

people talk about American artists,

Brown still faced misfortune with a

Lucy still handed out advice at a

parody of a lemonade stand. And
Snoopy, Charlie Brown's wise-but-
weird beagle, still took the occa-
sional flight of fancy back to the
skies of World War I and his rivalry
with the Red Baron.
Schulz was born in St. Paul,
Minn on Nov. 26, 1922, and stud-
ied art after he saw a "Do you like
to draw?" ad.
He was drafted into the Army in
1943 and sent to the European the-
ater, although he saw little combat.
After the war, he did lettering for
a church comic book, taught art and
sold cartoons to the Saturday
Evening Post. His first feature, "Li'l
Folks was developed for ihe St.
Paul Pioneer Press in 1947. In 1950,
it was sold to a syndicate and the
named changed to Peanuts, even
though, he recalled later, he didn't
much like the name.
Although he remained largely a
private person, the strip brought
Schulz international fame. He won
the Reuben Award, comic art's high-
est honor, in 1955 and 1964. In
1978, he was named International
Cartoonist of the Year, an award
voted by 700 comic artists around
the world.
He was to have been honored
with a lifetime achievement award
on May 27 at the National Cartoon-
ists Society convention in New York.
In his later years, he spent much
ot his time at his Redwood Empire
Ice Arena in Santa Rosa, about 60
miles north of San Francisco, where
he frequently played hockey or
sipped coffee at the rink's Warm
Puppy snack bar.

mained an intensely personal effort.
He had had a clause in his contract
dictating the strip had to end with
his death. While battling cancer, he
opted to retire it right then, saying
he wanted to focus on his health
and family without the worry of a
daily deadline.
"Why do musicians compose
symphonies and poets write po-

Recently South Carolina has been under fire from various groups who
feel that it is wrong for the controversial Confederate Flag to be displayed
atop a state building, especially the capital. The NAACP has voiced their
disapproval of the flag by calling for an all-out boycott of the state's tour-
ism industry.
With fewer people visiting the Spring Break hot spot Myrtle Beach
and historic places like Charleston, the state's economy is sure to be hit
hard. Clearly, this is an issue that can only be resolved in South Carolina,
by South Carolinians. This is the whole reason why we have both state
and federal governments, so other states do not have to become wrapped
up in issues that are in the territory of another. Some people argue that as
their bordering neighbors, we should be able to voice our opinions, but
everybody knows that the best neighbors know when to mind their own
Everyone is entitled to their personal opinion about the flag and its
place in today's society, but is it really the place of student government
associations and other organized groups in other states to make an offi-
cial statement concerning the issue? It's not as if we as college students
and North Carolinians don't have our own state issues that we should be
concerning ourselves with, like tuition increases and continued flood re-
Thankfully, our SGA has left the Confederate flag debate well alone
and is concentrating on issues that more readily concern students and
people here in our own corner of the South.
This is not to say that the issue should be ignored totally by anyone
outside of South Carolina's borders. By all means, learn about the issue
and decide how you feel about it; that's part of being an informed and
educated person. Just remember that no matter if you feel that the flag
stands for heritage or for hate, unless you're a citizen of South Carolina,
it's not really your battle to fight.
Language backslides into television scripts
Susan Wright
With the decline of novel read-
ing in America and the rise of
internet surfing and television
watching, people have learned to
settle with being fed information
rather than actively absorbing it
and learning it forever, Because
people have lost the luxury of
thinking for themselves and devel-
oping their own intellectual prow-
ess, they now settle for the medi-
ocrity of mainstream language and
straight forward speech.
When was the last time some-
one you know used a simile or a
metaphor to express what they
were thinking. Instead of saying
that the sky is blue, a person could
say that it was the color of dying
bluebell petals or a robin's egg. There
are one thousand shades of blue, but
the color of a robin's egg invokes a
definite image. Why do people opt
for the vague and expansive descrip-
tion rather than say what they mean
precisely and paint a picture in the
listeners mind? Because that would
require too much thought and en-
ergy because the concept of using
language as a palette rather than a
means of getting from here to there
is foreign to them.This antiquated
style of speech, otherwise known as
creative language, can be found in
any book worthy of its salt or any
poet's verse. Pablo Neruda, a master-
ful Spanish poet, writes of things as
mundane as chestnuts and waves in
language that makes the inanimate
object come alive. In prose, authors
create the setting and the charac-
ters often through simile and meta-
phor, dialogue and description.
There is no best method of using
language to create a scene, as long
as you use more than the basic good
and bad.
If your goal is to woo a woman,
make an A in your English class or
impress a perspective employer, use
language as a tool to your best ad-
vantage. Learn the skills from a
master such as Gabriel Garcia
Marquez, Victor Hugo, Emily
Bronte and J.R.R. Tolkein to utilize
your own descriptive imagination
and paint your own images in the
mind of anyone who will listen.
It's Valentine's Day: Bring on the love!
Valentine's Day pointless for those unattached
D. Miccah "Hunny-Buns" Smith
Every year on Valentine's Day, the same people
complain about their loneliness, the pervasive com-
mercialism of the holiday, or some other facet of mushy
love that compels them to dress in black, spend the
day in bed and sink deeper into dateless oblivion.
Inevitably, they think their sarcastic poems and
mopey editorials about Valentine's Day will win con-
verts to "team goth"�they're all WRONG!
Valentine's Day is about lovely flowers, cute boys,
fluffy puppies and yummy candy! You can't take that
away from me!
I have a special red and white polka-dot dress that
I wear on Valentine's Day. I carry around valentines or
cookies to distribute to my friends, doing my part to
coat the world in ooey-gooey sweetness and love! Even
when I have no boyfriend, I frolic about on this happi-
est of days.
That brings me to another subject! All you be-
draggled, bathrobed, black-clad boys and girls who seek
to bring about a dark age of Valentine-free Februaries
could do yourselves a favor by showering, getting
dressed and going out to meet some people.
Don't complain to me that you've got nobody to
love! I'm a 6-foot-tall, purple-haired woman who likes
'80s music and science fiction, and even I found a
snuggly-boo with whom to share my heart!
Instead of whining about your lack of free time or
inviting people to screw themselves, join me in cel-
ebrating this happy day! Kiss a stranger! Eat some
chocolate! Bring on the puppies!

Is Limp Bizkit's song "Nookie" really sexist?
Patrick McMahon
Screw Valentine's Day. Screw the happiness and
joy that it is supposedly there to celebrate. Screw Hall-
mark for inventing a holiday to further stuff their
greeting card pockets. Screw Wal-Mart for selling over-
priced chocolate-covered cherries that taste like a
booger wrapped in mud.
Screw me for not having a girlfriend. Screw me
for not having enough time to treat the girlfriends
I've had well enough to maintain a relationship. Screw
my friends for yelling obscenities at the girls I'm on
the phone with trying to get a date. Screw this holi-
day because it celebrates the joys of having a signifi-
cant other when you know damn well 70 percent of
the masses have no relationship to celebrate.
Screw the flower companies for having over-priced
daisies. Come on! It's a daisy! It's not like it's some
rare form of Ethiopian rose! It's a frickin' daisy! Screw
my friends who have girlfriends to take out while I'm
reduced to going to dinner with my parents and then
leaving early because I have class (just kidding, I love
my parents and value the time spent with them.)
Screw this and every other holiday invented for
the sole purpose of making money at the public's ex-
pense�except April Fool's Day, because that is my
birthday (I swear to God it is.) Screw ECU'S parking
situation. No wait, that's been done already. (Writer takes
a breath and calms down, then reads part of the other
Valentine's column and gets angry again.)
Dammit! I don't care what your damn hair color is.
If you have a relationship, then great oodles of noodles,
congratulations. More power to you. If I had as much
free time as you did, then maybe I could get a loser to
call me muffin-ass on the weekends. Give me a break.
Instead of dissing me because I ain't got nobody (that is
a hell of a sentence considering I'm an English major,)
just leave me alone so I can sulk and mope around all
day while you go frolicking in the leaves of grass lined
in purple flowers and chocolates in the shape of some
strange person's lips.
After this day comes, I'm sure I'll revert back to my
normal, happy-go-lucky state of bemusement. Oh God!
I've started whining! Here is a little poem to help me
through the day: Good God, give me this day my daily
bread, so that I can be mad and droop my head. No
woman to hold, no puppies to pet, no beautiful prin-
cess lain out on my bed. No money for beer so I cannot
drown my pain, no tender hand in mine while I watch
kids play in the rain. So from this day forth I shall whine
no longer. Can you gimme' 10 bucks, to get a fifth of

The ironic thing is that I'm not really a fan of Limp
Bizkit, but I am tired of hearing countless people down
the band by citing their sexist lyrics as the reason.
If any of these people would bother to sit down
and listen to, or read the lyrics, they would under-
stand how faulty their argument is.
Most people I run across who badmouth the band
are simply not fans of this kind of raprock music. Most
of them are either die-hard metal fans or die-hard rap
fans that don't like to see the genres mixed. Their real
problem is that these are a group of guys making a lot
of money rapping to metal music.
It must just be a sad form of jealousy that leads
them to grasp onto the faulty argument that Limp
Bizkit is sexist. These people have no real problem with
sexist lyrics, they just use this as a cover for their dis-
like of the genre of music. They hide behind the idea
that the song "Nookie" is sexist. I hate to break it to
them; but it isn't.
If you listen to the lyrics, you would notice that
throughout the song Fred Durst isn't badmouthing
women in a sexist way; he is actually badmouthing
one woman in particular�his ex-girlfriend, the one
who left him with "a lump in my throat, hey like a
The song is a retaliation against his ex-girlfriend
who slept with his friends, took his money and then
split town. And if you listen to these lyrics right here
you'd know that the song isn't sexist. "I can't believe,
that I can be deceived by my so-called girl, but in
reality had a hidden agenda, she put my tender heart
in a blender and still I surrendered, hey, like a chump
How clear can poor Fred make it? He's lying about
doing it all for the "nookie" because his woman left
him, and he is desperately trying to save face.
My suggestion is that if you don't like the music,
that's fine, but don't make a bigger fool out of yourself
by building faulty arguments. Just stand behind your
own truth.
Don't be "a chump, hey, like a chump hey "

I am writing in response to the opinion column
of Tues Feb. 8 titled "Trauma Caused By Everyday
I am the student that addressed the buzz in the
room of the 175 students in the physics class. By the
'thank you' response I received from the professor and
other students, I feel my comment was justified and
the expectation to hear a lecture should be shared by
anyone taking a class regardless of the size. Ms.
Murphy leads the reader to believe the buzz was caused
by subject-related discussion.
Actually, the buzz was caused by many groups of
students socializing. This had been going on since the
beginning class. I do not feel that my expectations of,
hearing a lecture that I pay S250 for is too high. I '
paid to hear the professor and I am not the least bit
interested in the social lives of the students around
me. I would have welcomed interactive dialogue re-
garding the subject matter. What are your expecta-
tions of the classroom?
There was no dramatic scenario as the reader is
led to believe. I just made the students responsible
aware that they were being rude. The classroom is for
learning not socializing, and I hold firm in my belief
that it is rude to interrupt someone talking regardless
of the situation. There are still inconsiderate people
in the class arid I am sure their expectation is to do
well in the class, and that they may be disappointed
if they don't. There is a door that stands between the
classroom and the outside. If what you have to talk
about is more important than the class lecture, use
the door and socialize outside.
Ms. Murphy, there is a difference between high
expectations and no expectations. I also believe there
is a link between expectations and goals.
I took the time to step away from the situation as
you suggested and you said "Decide what you want
rather then what you think you should get It just so
happens, I want a college education and I also think I
should get one in a classroom. What should I expect?
You should probably take another realistic look at life.
Having high expectations does not cause failure.
Having any expectations and not doing anything
to achieve them is what leads to failure. Disappoint-
ment is part of life. Expectations are yours and what
you do with them is also your responsibility. You are
not doomed by your parents professors' or anyone
else's expectations. You are doomed by your own in-
ability to take advantage of the opportunities and face
the challenges high expectations put in front of you.
That is the reality of life.

It is often thought that because
you are right-handed, you use the

fore you are more logical. Fortu-
nately, for all of the right-handed
art majors and the left-handed
math majors, your creativity or

problem-solving method.

Macbeth (actor.Ron Carey) and Macduff (actor Ben Allison) heat up the stage in
a vengenance duel.
Step outside, turn around three times and spit.
Simple directions to be sure, but they are reported to
prevent serious catastrophe when someone associated
with the play says "Macbeth" on stage while prepping
for, or performing, "The Scottish Play
Simply saying the play's name while on stage can
bring about the "curse of Macbeth
Any misfortune that occurs during the run of the
play is blamed on the curse. It is theorized that the
curse originated when Shakespeare supposedly in-
cluded actual black-magic spells in the incantations
of the Wyrd sisters, the witches in the play.
The "Macbeth Curse" isn't just another made-up
story, it actually has some firm historical grounds. The
play has been haunted by this evil reputation ever since
its first performance in 1606 when the boy actor, Hal
Berridge, playing Lady Macbeth, died backstage on
opening night.
Since the occurrence in 1606, there is a long list of
other coincidences that are blamed on the curse. In
1934, four different actors played Macbeth in a single
week. And, in 1937 the play was postponed for three
days because of the death of the director as well as the
death of the actress playing Lady Macduff.
Many different versions of the antidote to the curse
exist, but the general idea is that the name of the play
must not be said in the theater. If it is, the person who
said it must go outside the theater, turn around three
times, spit and then knock before reentering. Slight
variations include spouting out profanity while turn-
ing around, and simply turning around and spitting
while inside the theater.
This curse.has caused "Macbeth" to gain such nick-
names as "The Comedy of Glamis "The Scottish
Business" and "The Unmentionable But, the nick-
name most often used is "The Scottish Play
One might think that with this curse, the East
Carolina Playhouse is taking a great risk in perform-
ing "Macbeth especially after the recent bad luck
that eastern North Carolina has suffered. Well, you
wouldn't be too far off. The show hasn't gone off
without a hitch.
Unfortunately, the curse found its main victim in
the form of the technical director. Leonard Darby is
in charge of constructing the sets for the main-stage
shows and organizes the various student crews that
help support the running of the show. While begin-
ning construction for the show early last semester,
Darby tore some cartilage in his knee.
"I was working on the set, this was last semester
when we started working on the set after the flood,
and 1 was on stage moving scenery Darby said. "For
no reason whatsoever I was lifting something and tore
some cartilage in my knee. I have to admit that I had
said the wrong words prior to that happening, so I
had brought it on myself
Darby reports that there have been other minor
injuries including sprains and a minor hit to the eye.
While he acknowledges the curse, Darby doesn't seem
too concerned.
"I've said it a lot since, and I have yet to turn
around three times and spit Darby said.
The theater department seems to be taking the
curse slightly seriously, but most English professors
do not share the same superstitious sentiment when
it comes to the legend.
"I think it's only because the play has witches in
it says women's studies professor Lillian Robinson.
Resident Shakespearean expert Mckay Sundwall
"I think it's continued only because theater types
think it's rather fun to pretend to believe in it
Sundwall said.
Whether or not the legend is true, it might be a
good idea to go see the show just in case there's some
unexpected action on stage.

In our fast-paced society, people
don't always have a lot of time to
eat a well-balanced meal on the go.
Fortunately, fast-food restaurants
are now taking into consideration
the healthier lifestyles of some of
their customers and are offering
lower fat and lower calorie items
along with original favorites.

According to Bill Freelove, an area
McDonald's franchise owner, his restau-
rant noticed a change in people's tastes and
decided to change with them.
"We added lower calorie alternatives
to the menu to satisfy more people's
needs Freelove said.
Freelove said that they didn't want
to change the ingredients used to make
McDonald's trademark sandwich, the
Big Mac, but they did want to have itans
that their customers would enjoy.
"We began adding more chicken to
our menu and a new line of salads
Freelove said.

Dear Marjorie,
I met this guy last week, and I
gave him my number. He was sup-
posed to call me, but he didn't.
The the other day, he just showed
up out of nowhere, and he was
acting weird. Should I continue to
put my time and emotion into a
relationship with him, or should I
just ditch him?
�Debating Dumping
Dear Debating Dumping,
You sound like an intelligent
woman because you are seeing
signs and wondering whether to
turn back or go forward. At this
stage in the game, he should be
eager to talk to you and call ex-
actly when he says he will, if not
sooner. He should be curious to
know more about you and find out
if you are right together. From what
you are telling me, it sounds as if he
is just toying with your emotions or
just immature. In either case, he is
apparently not the kind of guy that
you want to throw yourself into a
relationship with. If he won't call
you after the initial enchantment,
he's not going to call you as the rela-
tionship wears on. Don't settle for
the mediocre guy; there are still good
single men out there.
Dear Marjorie,
I am falling for the most incred-
ible man. He is intelligent, talented
and fun to be with, and I hate to
leave him. Even if I am just sitting
� i
in the same room with him I feel
better. The problem is, sometimes I
wonder if this might be just a phase
or if it is possible to fall this quickly
and this hard. I hope so, but I just
don't know. What do you think?
Dear l.ovestruck,
It is a wonderful thing that you
have found someone who makes
you as happy as you seem. If he
truly is all that you say he is, then
there is a good chance that your re-
lationship will last for a long time.
Occasionally two people will fall
out of love as quickly as they fell
in, but one of the best guards
against this is friendship. If you
were friends before you started dat-
ing, or if you haves known each
other for a long time, it is more
likely that you already know all the
little annoying quirks that could
cause a breakup. Sometimes love
can strike fast, but hopefully for you
it will burn slowly.
Dear Marjorie,
I hate receiving e-mail forwards!
Is there any way that I can stop ev-
eryone from sending them to me?
�Miffed Mailee
Dear Miffed Mailee,
Typically, I only give my e-mail
address to my friends and employ-
ers. 1 am fairly certain that it is not
your boss who is sending you all of
these chain letters and other such
nonsense that you receive in your
e-mail, but rather these people who
you call your friends. If they truly
are your friends, they will under-
stand and be compassionate when
you express your desire to have an
inbox with meaningful mail rather
than junk. If you are living in an
illusionary world and these people
who you think are your friends re-
ally aren't and they won't stop
sending you junk for love nor
money, change your e-mail and be
more careful about who you give
your address to next time.
If you have a problem or a quettbn for

According to a
study by Gilbert
and Wysocki in
1992, young
people are
more likely to
be left-handed
than the eld-
erly. This is not
necessarily due
to a genetic dis-
position, but
rather the be-
lief that the
right hand is
According to
a study by
Langford in 1984, sun worship may be the cause of the as-
sociation between the left hand and evil. Most of mankind
has lived in the Northern Hemisphere, and the path of the
sun across the sky is from left to right if one tracks the sun
facing south. Rightward movement was associated with
goodness, and leftward movement was associated evil.
"Motor activities are controlled conrralaterally and that
can be taught said Durham. "If a person is in a bad acci-
dent and can no longer use their left hand, or if they are
taught that the right hand is superior, they can become right-
handed �
Which side of the body is dominant does not determine
whether one is creative or logical, it only determines which
side of the brain they use for motor functions.
I am right-handed, but I am far better at English than I
am at math and science said Amber Crowe, junior psy-
chology major.

Local man sets out
CARLSBAD,KM. (AP)-Every day for the last eight
years, except Mondays, Steve Offner has engaged in a
ritual of sorts at the end of his couch next to an end
Six mornings a week around 5:45 a.m Offner aims
himself with a large glass of chocolate OvaJtine, a pair
of scissors, a plain white envelope, a pen to write the
day's date and the Current-Argus newspaper.
What is he doing? He's on a mission to rid his om?,
sonal newspaper of grammatical errors and obviwfe
misspellings. Once these mistakes are out of sight atocL.
out of mind, Offner goes about his day.
For reasons even he can't explain, these blunders
appear larger than the normal newsprint and junto
off the page at him. They somehow tunnel his vision
and block his concentration until he cuts them away.
"First, I scan the paper to see what looks interest- �
ing to read Offner said. "Somehow when I'm read-
ing, the spelling and grammar errors tend to lump out
at me �.
This obsession of sorts began one day in 1991 as
he prepared to read his favorite columnist Mike Roykd- -
That day, the misspelling of Royko's name as 'Roved'
jumped off the page at him.
To Offner, that was the most "obvious blatant er-
ror As far as he's concerned, misspelling a name is
the ultimate spelling crime. That put him over the edge.
"A short time later, I started scanning the paper
every day for mistakes and a few weeks later I started �
cutting them out Offner said.
He said he's given a great deal of thought as to why
he continues to do this and has even contemplated
stopping. However, his morning ritual is now so in- !
grained that it's part of his daily routine-like comb-
ing his hair and brushing his teeth.
The real work begins during the first half of Janu-
ary, when Offner dedicates the better part of one day
to compiling and arranging headline bloopers as chro-
nologically as possible to be framed. Once everything,
is in place, Offner, 46, pastes them onto a board.
Then he photocopies the "Year in Review" head- H

Plumping problem leaks
blood from embalming service
from page 7
TULSA, Okla. (AP)-The plumbing of an embalm-
ing service is under inspection after a sewage backup
.Caused blood to spill down the street.
Michael Sager, who owns property near the
Frarisisco Ray Embalming Service, reported the leak
after the blood filled pot holes three- to four-inches
deep and drained into a storm sewer.
1 looked at the color of this water very closely, and
t was very disturbed Sager said.
� The liquid was coming from underneath the door
of a mortuary directly behind his property, Sager said
Photos he took Jan. 6 show the liquid flowing into a
storm sewer at Detroit Avenue and First Street, which
drains into the Arkansas River.
n The executive director of the Oklahoma State Board
�f Embalmers and Funeral Directors, Terry McEnany
investigated the incident Tuesday in Tulsa.
"A check will be done to make sure it was cleaned
properly and the problem was fixed McEnany said.
Bill Osmond, an attorney for the embalming busi-
ness, said a plumbing company was contacted as soon
Ss the business owner became aware of the problem
"This was not an intentional violation of any city,
state or federal law. Everything was cleaned. They re-
moved the waste and disinfected Osmond said.
The morning after he found the blood, Sager con-
tacted county health officials, who checked the site
with a storm water management team.
Investigators did not find an obvious appearance
of blood but found residual where the liquid had been

The mortuary owner confirmed that a sewage
backup had caused the spill and was instructed to dis-
infect the area using an extra heavy bleach solution,
Baker said.
"Mr. Fransisco responded in a positive, coopera-
tive manner Baker said.
McEnany said the embalming service has been pe-
riodically inspected and found to be compliant.

gest lead of the first half. At half time ECU shot 13-of-
29 from the field. The Lady Pirates led James Madison
26-to-ll in rebounds. The half was finished with the
score at 34-25.
During the second half, the Dukes shortened ECU's
lead to five points.
This proved to be insufficient, as the Lady Pirates
ended the game with 47 rebounds, a 46.4 percent (26-
of-56) shooting percentage and 12
assists. JMU made only 15 field
goals, but successfully shot 30-of-
34 from free throws. James Madi-
son hit 24 consecutive free throw
shots giving the Dukes a record.
NBA All-Star game
without a star
The first All-Star game since
1998 yielded no single star as the
West defeated the East 137-126.
Without an awesome player to
shine in the spotlight like Michael
Jordan, viewers were able to see
real teamwork in action.
"The league is like a stock
said Kevin Garnett. "You've got to
give it a chance to recover from
the lockout, and it's going to keep
rising and rising
Despite damage caused by
'the lockout the NBA is clearly do-
ling just fine.
Hasek to play
one more year
Dominik Hasek can't make up
his mind. The 35-year-old Buffalo
Sabre goaltender has been
plagued this season with a groin
injury that has cost him 40 games
so far. Apparently he just isn't
ready to go out with this injury as
a lasting impression on the fans.
"This isn't the way Dom
wanted to go out said Hasek's
agent Rich Winter. There is no fo-
cus on individual awards. He
wants to go out strong.
"He always felt Buffalo treated
him very well. He always had that
kind of loyalty. He felt the obliga-
tion to give what he could for the
purposes of winning the (Stanley)
Cup before he retired. The inju-
ries threw a wrench into that,
that's why he's reconsidering

The ECU Pirates' baseball team
headed south this weekend to play
in the Trademark Properties Invita-
tional hosted by The Citadel. The
squad faced the likes of N.C State,
Maryland and 24th ranked South
Carolina in the tournament held in
Charleston, SC.
The Pirates cruised past N.C.
State 10-2 on Friday morning in the
first game of the tournament. Lead-
ing the way were juniors Joe
Hastings and Cliff Godwin, who
drove in seven runs between them.
"Cliff and Joe had good offen-
sive days for us said head coach
Keith LeClair. "They had most of
their hits with two strikes and re-
ally got the job done
Also contributing to the Pirates
win over the instate rival Wolfpack,
were three freshman pitchers, Scott
Griffey joins Reds
Ken Griffey Jr. finally laid all
questions to rest last Thursday
when he finally decided to play for
his hometown team, the Cincin-
nati Reds. Griffey pressured the
Mariners long and hart to trade
him to the Reds. The Reds finally
sent four players over to the Mari-
ners for the price of Griffey and
offered him a nine-year contract
worth $116.5 million.
"The last time I put on this uni-
form, I think I was 8�for a father-
son game Griffey said, pulling
on the Reds jersey at a news con-
ference. This is something I
dreamed about as a little kid, be-
ing back in my hometown where I
watched so many great players

Pirates' 5-4 victory over Maryland at The
Citadel Invitational, (file photo)
Greene, Will Brinson and winner
Sam Narron. Narron picked up his
first collegiate victory by pitching
2.1 innings and allowing only one
hit and one run. Scott Greene
pitched 4.2 innings while giving up
four hits and one run in his first
start of the season. Brinson pitched
the eighth and ninth surrendering
just one base hit.
The Pirates scored five runs in
the sixth, and added four more in
the seventh to improve to 2-U.
"The most important thing is
that we won LeClair said.
Saturday afternoon did not
bring as much success as the Pirates'
club had hoped. The Pirates sent
junior Foye Minton to the mound,
who is coming off a combined no
hitter vs. Duke, and looking to im-
prove his record to 2-0. Minton
lasted only 3.2 innings while being
tagged for six runs on seven hits.
He did, however, strike out four.
"They came out and executed
their game plan, and we didn't
LeClair said after suffering a dismal
12-1 defeat. "I thought we did some
good things, but when you give up
seven walks and get just two ground
ball outs, that makes it tough to do
the things you are trying to do. This
is something we need to just flush
out of our systems, and move on to
the next game
Despite being handed their first
loss of the season, there were a few
bright spots. Freshman pitcher
Glenn Tucker went 2.2 innings, giv-
ing up one run and striking out two
Gamecock batters. Another silver
lining was that Lee Delfino's bat fi-
nally woke up. Hitless in two games
this season, Delfino broke out go-
ing 3-3 with the Pirates lone RBI.
"It's still early in the season, and
that showed a little Delfino said.
"We did some good things and
played against good competition,
but we still have to continue to get
better and better to where we want
to be at the end of the season
The Pirates' last game of the
tournament was Sunday against a
winless Marylandsquad and nefped
an extra frame to decide. ECU
struck first, with two runs in the
third inning off of James Molinari's
triple and Chad Tracy's single. In
the fourth inning, Delfino
doubled, Justin Hyde walked and
Bryant Ward singled in both of
them giving the Pirates a 4-0 lead.
Jeremy Schumacher turned in an
excellent performance from the
mound, lasting six solid innings
and giving up a stingy two hits,
zero runs and striking out five.
Despite the Pirates' offensive
success, and the outstanding pitch-
ing, the defense committed two
errors that allowed the Terrapins to
stay in the game. With the score
knotted at four, heading into the
bottom of the 10th, the Pirates
looked to senior outfielder James
Molinari to pull them through. Joe
Hastings lead off the inning with
a double, followed by a walk to Erik
Bakich and then an intentional
walk to Bryant Ward setting the
stage for Molinari.
"I knew they were going to
walk Bryant to get to me Molinari
said. "It was the situation where
that made sense. I just took what
they gave me and tried to drive it
Molinari did just that. He drove
in the game-winning run with a
single that sealed the victory for
the Pirates, improving their record
to 3-1. Senior Cory Scott picked the
victory by going 3.0 innings and
striking out five. Coach LeClair was
"We battled and did the little
things at the end that you need to
do to win, but the biggest thing
about this win is that we were able
to rebound from a tough loss on
Saturday vs. USC LeClair said.
The Pirates finished the tourna-
ment with a 2-1 record and head
back to Greenville for a three-game
match against George Washington
this weekend at Harrington Field.

ECU'S men's 4x400 relay squad
took first place at the Iowa State
Invitational and capped a week-
end of strong competition for
ECU's track and field teams.
At the meet in Ames, Iowa, the
men's 4x400 meter relay beat
some of the nation's top squads
in taking first place. The team of
Lawrence Ward, Darrick Ingram,
'aines Alexander and Damon
Davis ran a time of 3:08.04. The
third fastest time this year.
This is a big one said head
men's track coach, Bill Carson.
"We beat teams that were ranked
Among the teams' that the Pi-
rates beat were perennial powers,
LSU, Auburn and Florida.
"We beat a lot of great teams
in this race Carson said. "It was
a great victory. I wasn't real sure
that we had the leg speed, because
we couldn't run this winter
A penalty of 1.6 seconds was
added to the time due to the size
of the track. The Pirates modified
time of 3:09.64 puts them fourth
in the nation and should qualify
for the NCAA Indoor Champion-
ships in March.
In the open 400 meters, ECU's
Damon Davis took third with a
time of 46.87. Davis' time is an
NCAA provisional mark. Ingram
took 13th place.
While the quarter-milers trav-
eled to Ames, the rest of the men's
and women's squad took their tal-
ent to Blacksburg, Va. for the
Kroger Valentine's Invitational.
"We just keyed some individu-
als and got some great perfor-
mances said head cross country
coach, Len Klepack.
At the meet the men were led by
a pair of distance runners. Justin
England, barely missed the cut for
the IC4A's and turned in a school
record performance in the 3,000
meters. England placed ninth with
a time of 8:33.03.
Stu Will placed seventh in the
1,000 meters with a time of 4:22.73,
also just missing the cut for the
IC4A's. His time was the fastest run
by an ECU athlete in ten years.
"I was really pleased with both
runners Klepack said. "They
showed up very well

Blacksburg to get some final ECAC
qualifiers and get in tune before
heading to the final meets in the

Mickelson ends Woods' winning streak
SAN DIEGO (AP)After denying Tiger Woods a sev-
enthi staught PGA Tour victory, Phil Mickelson offered
neither apologies nor condolences.
Mickelson had just survived a round in which he
had two double bogeys in five holes on a course he'd
grown up playing, and wanted only to savor his Buick
Invitational victory.
"I wasn't out to end his streak said Mickelson,
who did just that on Sunday in dramatically stopping
he tours longest run in 52 years. "I don't want to be
the bad guy here. I just wanted to win the tournament
Io go against the best player in the world, and to
come out on top, means a lot to me "
Mickelson showed grit after his two big stumbles
to beat Woods and Japan's Shigeki Maruvama bv fou
strokes on the lorrey Pines South Course. It was the
Mrst win in 18 months for Mickelson, who was
mnnenip at the NEC Invitational, where Woods' streak
Heck he even pumped his fist, fust like Woods does
after sinking a 6-foot birdie putt on No. 14, his second
straight birdie to recover from the double bogeys that
wiped the smile from his face.
So Byron Nelson's record run of 11 straight victo-
ries is safe, for the time being.
Can Woods or anyone else win six straight again?
It fust all depends if someone gets hot like I did-
someone plays well and give themselves enough 2J
por(unit,es, Woods said. "Either you are going to win
th m outright yourself or you might need a little help
but I think it can be done again '
After lurking six shots off the lead after each of the
first three rounds, Wood made another exciting run
He trailed Mickelson by seven strokes with 12 to
Shh�,SnS COm?ared � "is rally last Monday at
1 ehbleBeach, when he was down seven with seven
he w�'?'VqT 'T' 'MnMH-WOiigh chances. But
he wasn t entirely unhappy with his day.
"I didn't back off. I didn't dog it out there Woods
said. "I just hung in there. For some reason, I didn't
hit the ball as crisp today as I needed to
Mickelson wasn't crisp the whole way, either
which helped let Woods back in it.
On the par-4 No. 7, Mickelson hit a wild approach
that landed just far enough in front of a tree to restrict
his swing. Double bogey. On the 11th, a par-3 he
missed the green and chunked his first chip so badly
it stayed in the rough.
So, after a S-foot birdie on 13, Woods had a share
of the lead at 1 S-under.
But Mickelson, playing in the group behind Woods
stepped up and showed he wasn't collapsing. His drive
on the 13th was blocked to the left, in the rough and
under a eucalyptus tree, leaving him no chance to
reach the green in two.
"I knew I needed to make 4 he said. "I just didn't
know how
With 116 yards to the pin, he hit a terrific 9-iron
that spun back to 2 feet for birdie.
"After that, 1 was back in control of my game he
And, he noted, he never did surrender his lead
I hat's because Woods, who felt he was in it until
his Hop shot for eagle missed on 18, effectively knocked
himself out with bogeys on the par-4 14th and par-3
16th. '
Woods' approach shot on 14 was 25 feet right of
his target and he three-putted for his first bogey in 44
holes. � '
He bogeyed the 16th hole from the bunker, and
with a smile seemed to sense the streak was over
At least 1 made it interesting for Phil Woodssaid
It s disappointing I didn't win.
"I just wasn't hitting it good enough to give my-
self a viable chance down the stretch? and it finally
caught up with me. To even be under par was kj

A biweekly glance at what's happening In the Division of Student Life
in the REALITY
I thought 1 knew him
Ihodknown him pretty much all my life. That is why I don't understand what went wrong. IsaidNO
We went to his place for a party that his roommate was throwing to kick off the new school year. The
music was playing and the people were laughing and having the time of their lives. Drinks were being
passed around and you could tell most of the people were going to have a hard time getting up in the
morning. My friend said it was "going to be a night to remember I came to see the truth in that state-
ment the next morning when I realized that someone who I talked to and thought I could trustraped me.
He said that he wanted to talk to me alone upstairs. He looked a little drunk, but I just thought he wanted
to talk about a new love interest or something. I followed him up the stairs, into the room. At first, he just
touched me and I brushed him away. He was drunkthings like that happen. I didn't like him in that
way. He didn't want to hear that. He didn't want to hear me saying No over and over again as he violated
me. I couldn't stop itI felt powerless. lean still hear the echoes in the night, a woman's is me
saying No.
I wasn't prepared for this to happen to me. I never listened to those people who talked about protecting
myself or to the stories of those who had been raped. I never thought it would happen to me.

Off Campus Living:
Asking the Right Questions?
Looking for your first off-campus place can be exciting and overwhelming.
There are some questions to ponder as you take that next step toward
1) Do I want roommates?
2) Do I need a yard?
3) How far from campus do
I want to live?
4) Is there alternative
transportation available
(ECU Transit)?
5) What kind of amenities do I want? (For example: washerdryer, pool,
computer lab, fitness center.)
6) How much am I willing to spend on rent?
(Remember, it is okay to have a patent or attorney review the lease before
you sign it.)
1) Do I have to pay rent during the summer months when I'm not in
2) What is my landlord responsible for fixing?
3) What happens to my security deposit after I move?
4) How can I get out of my lease?
1) Then looking for an apartment, begin early! This will assure you of a
better selection, more time to look over the places and review the lease.
2) Take a checklist with you to review with the landlord or apartment
manager. Things on your list may include:
A) Is there enough outlets, storage space, kitchen cabinets, etc?
B) Check that window screens are in place and make sure shades
blinds work properly.
C) Check plumbing and appliances.
D) Look over the condition of walls and ceilings.
3) If any repairs need to be completed before you move in put them in
writing with the landord. -
If you need more information about living off-campus attend an "A Place
of Your Own" program. Learn about leases, tenantlandlord responsibili-
ties, city ordinances, and much more.
